[Corbett Report] How To Free Your Tax Cattle

Is There Anyone to Vote For? – ClandesTime episode 049

Secker Writes: "I reflect on the forthcoming British general election and consider whether any of the candidates are worthy of my vote.

I round off by revealing my results from an online poll designed to tell you which party best represents your view."

It's something that I think is useful to do in other states or federations where formal power comes through an electoral process, if only to think through the reality of the situation compared to the rhetoric spread through the media outlets.

These Are a Few of My Favorite Things: My Go-To Sites For News & Views

This may feel like a punt, but honestly it's good that I do a short point today linking to the go-to sites for me.
  • SpyCulture, home of ClandesTime and "...the world’s leading resource on state-sponsored culture and the relationships between military and intelligence agencies and the culture industry."
  • What On Earth Is Happening, Mark Passio's site.
  • The Corbett Report, home of half of New World Next Week and all of James Corbett's work online.
  • Boiling Frogs Post, the site founded by Sibel Edmonds (whom Corbett does collaborate with).
N.B.: Media Monarchy still technically exists, in that the Twitter account is active and other parts of James Evan Pilato's outfit is still a thing, but he's still spending most of his time involved with Ground Zero and Clyde Lewis instead of pursuing his own work as he used to. Most unfortunate.
