Washington’s war on Julian Assange

Washington in general, and the CIA in particular, are going after Julian Assange for one reason: Because he reveals the truth about the crimes they commit. The rest of it is bullshit.

The goal of propaganda is a population that polices itself

The propagandist seeks to bend the ‘group mind’.  And we are seeing it being cemented in the UK right now…the idea that criticism of Israel’s persecution of Palestinians is an act of anti-Semitism. MarkGB takes a closer look into the current sharpest manifestation – the smear campaign against Jeremy Corbyn.

The state of the UK

An old friend of mine sent me a message a few days ago after reading ‘The Insidious Nature of Power‘, a piece I wrote for Renegade Inc. in September 2017 here. “I would love it if you did some analysis from a UK standpoint. What do you think of where we are on Brexit? Do you think the […]

The Guardian: A cheerleader for US sponsored terror

Over the past week, the Guardian has engaged in a variety of personal attacks on a number of independent journalists and academics – those who criticise the paper’s support for the ‘White Helmets’; a so-called ‘humanitarian’ organisation that operates in ‘rebel-held’ areas of Syria. There are two versions of this story, but the media only wants you to hear one of them…

21st Century Plague

Equally parasitic as the medieval Black Death, the pandemic we face in the 21st Century is a psychological phenomenon rather than a biological one. Its name is ‘deceit’, and our political & economic institutions are riddled with it.  Mark GB calls out the manifestations of the 21st-century plague – and it might just provide the antidote you need to survive it.

Government vs The People

Washington has turned into the thing that it freed itself from 241 years ago – a bloated and corrupt imperial power, desperate for taxes, constantly hunting down resources overseas…sustained by military might and control of the global monetary system. Arrogant beyond belief, oblivious to its own hypocrisy, and dismissive of the need to maintain the respect of other nations – the US government is a reflection of everything it was created to overthrow. 

John McCain & the Liberty Medal: history just rang a bell

On 16th October the world received a clear signal of what is valued by the ruling elites of the United States – John McCain was awarded the 2017 Liberty Medal at the National Constitution Centre. Whatever John McCain received that medal for – it was not ‘liberty’.  History doesn’t actually ring a bell, but it does provide signals of what is to come. John McCain’s medal represents the hijacking of liberty to justify tyranny.

Dear Catalans – A message from the Chairman

Dear Catalans, You are not allowed to secede from Spain. The EU ‘owns’ Spain, and Spain ‘owns’ you. Catalonia is a wholly owned subsidiary of Spain. Spain is a subsidiary of the EU. And the EU is non-negotiable. Vast amounts of capital went into this project; if it fails it will bring down the global banking system.

‘The psychopath, the puppet and the princeling’: Preparing PR for war on Iran

In the coming months we can expect to witness an increasing number of speeches and articles demonising Iran, along with a growing number of ‘serious incidents’, that will be used to justify reneging on the nuclear deal. The phoney war on Iran has entered a new phase. The Likud party led by Netanyahu, the Trump administration, supported by the Wahhabi backed princeling in Riyadh…have absolutely no interest in collaborative solutions in the Middle East. Their goal is regime change. 

The insidious nature of power

Our problems will not be solved by the victory of one party over another, or of one ‘ism’ over another. Changing lawmakers from ‘conservatives’ to ‘liberals’ or ‘liberals’ to ‘socialists’, without reforming how the laws are made is like asking the orchestra to play a happy tune whilst the ship goes down, writes Mark GB. Our problems arise from the centralisation of power and money in the hands of unaccountable vested interests. We need fundamental reform of the political and monetary system itself.

The reasons we go to war – who do you believe?

Throw a dart at the map of the world and chances are it will land in or near a territory in which the US and its allies have ‘promoted democracy’, made a ‘humanitarian intervention’, and/or  ‘defended western values’, leaving behind the stench of  JP Morgan, Standard Oil, Halliburton, and the Cheney and Clinton dynasties.  The concept of ‘left and right’ is a sideshow for the plebs – MarkGB examines how war has become a reliable profit centre for government cronies. 

Cash is not the curse

We are at a critical stage in the ‘end-game’ of a monetary system in desperate need of reform, but the government has neither the stomach nor the spine for the job. So instead Uncle Sam is coming after your taxes. Mark GB on why growth and progress is about to run off a cliff. 

Central banks: a sausage based conundrum

They say if you like laws and sausages, you should never watch either one being made. Banking belongs on that list also, but it seems most people would rather not know. Economic conditions are poor. We are not in a recovery; we are in a depression. Central Banks don’t understand the problem because central banks are the problem.

The end of the indispensable empire

The challenge facing the US is to operate in a world where there is not one single power, but multiple poles of power and influence. If you were Russia, or China, or Iran, would you believe that the American administration has any interest whatsoever in international law? Would you trust the US? Or would you be looking over your shoulder wondering if you were next?
