Brexit Update: The First Rule of Holes.

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

“Doesn’t the Prime Minister realize that she has handed over power…The power that they want, is to be able to demonstrate [EU power] to every other country that might be thinking of leaving the EU.”

-Dennis Skinner (MP-Labour/1970-present)

What a difference a day makes, or in the case of UK parliamentary political theatre applied to the ever-changing definition of Brexit; just a couple of hours will do.

Despite her Cabinet having been found inContempt of Parliament for the first time in UK history due to the cover-up of portions of the very damning Attorney General’s report on Brexit, UK Prime Minister- for now- Theresa May showed her continued contempt: she continued undaunted.

On Tuesday, Dec. 10, 2018, the day before the finale- the Vote -of this two-and-a-half year debacle anxiously awaited by Britons month-after-month, and still somehow called Brexit, our plucky PM would suddenly pull the rug out from under her own continuing farcical sideshow of Parliamentary and Prime Ministerial treason.

Unfortunately for the UK, Ms May, the Energizer Bunny of UK politics, just won’t quit. Does she not know about the first rule of holes?

Brexit: Theresa May Goes Greek!

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

Regularly presidents, prime ministers, congresspersons and parliamentarians worldwide negate the democratic will of their nation’s voters by refusing to support legitimate election results. Strangely, their treasonous actions continue without serious reprisal or punishment by the voter. This emboldens them. The reality of votes cast and “democracy” past does not does bode well for the people of the United Kingdom, their future as a nation or their hopeful return to sovereignty once called, “Brexit.”

While the name has not changed; the definition certainly has.

How to Stop This Election Madness.

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

In a mere sixty-one days after the election, on Nov. 8, 2016, the eventual president-elect can be stopped from taking the Oath of Office. It has happened three times before in US election history. However, this time it is the voter who can change the course of history. Every American man and woman, of every race, color, and creed, religion, ethnicity and sexuality over the age of eighteen can- this election- alter all US presidential elections, while seizing-back the reigns of a shattered democracy and Constitution.

Interestingly, deep under the rubble of what’s left of the eviscerated US Constitution lies an all-powerful shard awaiting to be used. Here the long-range wisdom and thinking of its authors two-hundred-plus years ago must now be fully considered and appreciated. The concerned reader will be pleased to learn that a treasonous Executive Branch,... Read More

A Whiff of Methane and the Odor of Corruption

Porter ranch methane gas leak
By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

“Oh! Sure. Twice, just last week,” answered Porter Ranch resident Jim Baker to the question about whether the smell of methane gas was reaching his home.

 

Residents across the affluent north Los Angeles suburb of Porter Ranch report the same smell. Not good: methane gas is poison. On day one of an on-scene look at the world’s largest natural gas leak, which every day spews uncontrolled at extremely high pressure the equivalent greenhouse gas pollution of 4.5 million cars, another distinct smell is becoming obvious: political corruption.

 

High above Porter Ranch, natural gas well Standard Sesnon 25 (SS-25) has been blowing high-pressure methane gas into the air for months. The exact date that the blow-out began is uncertain since the owner of SS-25, Southern California Gas Company (Cal Gas), reluctantly admitted to the massive pipe rupture... Read More

Stopped!! Methane Blow-Out. Radioactive Fall-out. And … The Predictable Result.

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

This past Thursday, Feb. 11, 2016 brought a welcome breath of fresh air to more than 4400 displaced Porter Ranch, CA residents. It was their first in more than four months. A mile or so due north and a thousand feet farther up the foothills of the Santa Susana mountains in Aliso Canyon, the nation’s worst environmental and health disaster since BP, has stopped. Natural gas well, SS-25 is dead.

After depositing more than 90 million metric tons of a very toxic gaseous cocktail from two miles deep under the mountains up into the atmosphere above 18.5 million mostly unsuspecting Angelenos, the corporate players who have caused this disaster are now assuring this same public that they are, suddenly, protecting their interests. As highlighted in the previous article, the... Read More

A Return to the Madness of: M.A.D.

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

One generation later, madmen have returned. They bring with them the madness of… M.A.D.

Again, absolutely all politics are reduced to White or Black. There is no gray. All peoples of our world again exist within a fateful clash between only two distinct ideologies, best summed-up as; Good vs. Evil. Right vs. Wrong. Life or… death?

A mere generation ago the colors of worldwide military polarization were then thrust upon the innocent by mad politicians with similar delusions of empire who, then, portrayed their geo-political expansionism in the easily understood colors of  Red vs. Blue: East vs. West. The Cold War. The once Soviet empire vs. the ever-since burgeoning US contra-empire. The multitude of issues separating the two supposedly separate doctrines of Red or Blue ultimately distilled into one single, horrific doctrine of military nuclear... Read More

The Secret “American” Army.

Demo cartoon
By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

A  new American army is  growing on American soil. They are prepared.

In hushed tones during conversations across the breadth of the heartland of America there are whispers. Quiet talk. About an army. Of Americans? An army prepared to defend an increasingly oppressed population craving reprieve from their  government’s increasingly draconian methods. This army, they say, is growing.

After firm handshakes all around, Dan T. and Gene R., who I had good reason to believe were both retired military, settled into our task at hand. I was in their company for the day on business. During the one-day meeting Dan and Gene revealed that they were indeed career military. Dan, Army. Gene, retired Navy. I attempted to politely avoid political discussion in the interest of decorum.

So at the first comment on politics from my hosts I took a long deep breath. My... Read More

The Mastermind of Hamas: Who is Mohammed Deif?

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

 Without an army for the people, there is nothing for the people.  – MaoTse-tung (On Guerrilla Warfare)

 

Mohammed Deif is the most dangerous man in the world.

Confronted with the world’s two most militaristic national horrors, and with the civilized world looking on in hand-wringing anguish, Hamas has commanded both these villains of inhumanity to their knees; the negotiating table in Cairo.

The iron-fisted leader of Hamas, Mohammed Deif, is closer than ever before to a victory for the autonomy of Gaza, and a National victory Palestine.

More importantly a victory for the remaining civilized world.

The Israeli controlled media, having few facts about Mohammed Deif, much less... Read More

Terminal Apathy?: What Rats Say About Americans.

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

“Tolerance and apathy are the last virtues of a dying society.” – Aristotle

When considering the cause of national apathy, Americans are evidently physiologically and socially similar to the junk food addled laboratory rat. Both tolerate repressive environments while confined against their will in a maze. In the natural desire to escape and find freedom, like the affected rat, Americans passively accept their confinement, acquiescing without struggle to a life of controlled stimulation and manipulation by all manner of drugs, tests, and mandated choice of direction. In a country objectively descending into chaos, why don’t American care? In recent studies at the University of California/ Los Angeles (UCLA), these same rats evidence one reason for America’s irrational disinterest in self-preservation.

In ever-more-frequent and growing worldwide protests, resistance to the American empire’s imposed maze increases. Strangely, Americans offer no similar resistance at all. The social, economic, and political problems in the USA mirror those of an empire afflicted world, yet in the “exceptional” nation most would rather chew off their tails than find the energy to extricate themselves from their maze. Examples of exceptionally paltry public resistance and protest abound. Rarely does an American protest amount to more than a few hundred temporarily outraged souls who then quickly return to their couches when told to do so by the well-armed militia of the government they came into the streets to change.

Why is America the isolated case study of this strange domestic malady that may best be summed-up as: clinical, terminal apathy?

From TPP San Diego/ U.S. Chief Negotiator Calls 135 Members of Congress, Four Senators, Liars!

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

“Is that thing on?” gasped Barbara Weisel, U.S. Chief Negotiator at the Trans Pacific Partnership negotiations after having just accused four U.S. senators, and one hundred thirty-two congress persons, of lying to the American public.

This included reference to Sen. Ron Wyden who has, repeatedly, demanded to see a copy of the treaty. Milliseconds after accusing one fourth of the U.S. congress of being dishonest she spied the arch enemy of all political miscreants blinking menacingly next to her; the voice recorder.

Now, clutching this reporters’ voice recorder, she anxiously attempted to shut it off and, or, erase the recording. “You can’t record this”, she continued while still fidgeting with the gadget, obviously aware that she had been caught in several very inflammatory, and by all reports fraudulent, accusations. She is employed by congress. You would not know it to speak with her.

Reaction from Sen. Wyden’s Office was direct and swift despite the pending 4th of July holiday.

“It is disappointing that a member of the USTR staff would make comments like this in the press and it underlines the concerns of Members of Congress that the negotiators are not taking the interests and input of individual Americans seriously in the negotiating process.” responded Tom Caiazza, Press Secretary for Sen. Wyden
