What happened

Hillary Clinton’s denial tour of America demonstrates she still hasn’t learned the key lesson of the election. Her book is a series of specious arguments for the dim-witted, filled to the brim with excuses and lies that embodies Washington’s pay-to-play swamp culture. This is precisely why nothing ever gets done in DC —politicians get paid off and everyone else gets screwed.

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.

#FakeData: Deciphering the swamp’s unemployment deception

We need an open investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails, the entire ‘fake news’ Russian collusion affair and James Comey’s fake FBI investigation,  and not for the reasons you think.

Recently disclosed phone calls between former Libyan Premier, Muammar Gaddafi, and former British Prime Minister, Tony Blair, reveal that Gadaffi tried to warn the west what would occur if it used Libya as a pretext for military intervention and regime change. The premonition – which has proven frightfully accurate – fell on deaf ears.

Catch-22: What to do when there are no good choices

Humans are not built for nuance, we are trained to think in polarities. But the world is not black-and-white. And in an age of ‘fake news’, there are no good guys, and no bad guys, only tough choices.
