Did Uncle-Daddy have access to the CIA’s hacking tool kit before even the NYT? Or was it before the NSA had bothered to check their old flash drives for evidence of Office of Naval Intelligence interference in the workings of the Deep State that had penetrated the Even Deeper State to find there was a Shallow State that seemed to be floating around the place not doing much at all.
That was all Uncle-Daddy needed to spring his trap….
It’s a long, slow burn, type of trap that resets without warning and can take fingers off for the unsuspecting PHd student who made the dangerous mistake of thinking that a career in anything to do with making money out of the virtue of work, would work.
I deactivated my Twitter account because I realized people weren’t reading past the headlines or first few sentences, images, etc of what they were reacting to. I found myself becoming a supporter of Trump because all I could see was a campaign to discredit him at every opportunity. I thought he was less of a threat than Clinton and I still do. But beyond that I really don’t think much of anybody who seeks and captures the Presidency. The Deep State is in control and Trump cannot win against it unless he has the majority of the population awake and switched on.
Trouble with that is that the recent bungling over the wiretapping claims coming from the White House make me think these people are just making a mockery of themselves by being so ill-informed about the subjects they claim knowledge of.
Why would I continue to support people who are deliberately making conspiracy analysis and it’s supporters look like complete fucking morons! Because that’s what they’re doing when they start talking about microwave ovens that can become cameras.
It’s becoming more apparent to me by the day that Trump cynically used the Alt-right media to mobilize an important part of the American electorate. It seems to have all been artifice to get elected and then discredit the very people who conspicuously supported him by being so clumsy with his claims of interference from the Deep State.
That’s because it’s becoming very apparent that we can handle the truth no matter how deeply buried in bullshit it is. The Internet is scaring the pants off TPTB and I’m becoming even more convinced we are in a very big psy-op designed specifically to destroy the Net as it currently operates. What they have in store I don’t know but I’m thinking it wont be as easy to publish on as it is now.
I’m also amazed at how the ‘Left’ are embracing what can only be called the Deep State in opposing Trump. My disillusion at discovering the heart of our society is trauma-based makes me reel from the world at large these days as I can see people are not able to think without an imposed framework set by a devious elite.
Admittedly I think that a fair few on Twitter have expertise and don’t spout rubbish but there is a tendency for people to start to stray from their particular expertise and take polarized positions based on disputed evidence.
Which, I think, is exactly as TPTB want it to be. All of us at each others throats over people such as Clinton/Trump/Obummer (Just to mention the ones we all recognize). The truth be known all protagonists in this two party system are playing their part.
The Republicats in Washington DC represent the Deep State and it’s showing me that most people are aware of the Deep State and are desperate to kiss its ass until something opens up.
Horserotovator has established his own Deep State that, quite frankly, is so deeply embedded in the Orion star system that it just doesn’t read emails. It wont even pay it’s phone bill which has become quite significant.

I thought I’d let you see more of the process I’m developing in constructing my cartoons.
Plus it gives me the opportunity to pontificate about whatever is exercising my mind at the moment. This time it’s about freedom of speech and art.
First, my cartoon so far…
I’ll let you be the judge of whether my process has merit or is mired in a controversy of my own making.
As to free speech and the debate being waged by TPTB in the MSM and anywhere else it might get to fly; In Australia their is a move afoot to redraw the legislation surrounding limitations to free speech as contained in a piece of legislation called ’18c’.
The people who want to change it seem to be arguing that we should be able to insult and offend but not harass as at the moment all those things are prohibited by the legislation.
I have trouble with these terms as they are open to interpretation and redefined legal definitions. Once behaviors are codified into legislation we, the citizens, effectively become bounded by those definitions and loose latitude of movement in interpretation without a court of law and an army of barristers and QC’s to argue our case. That’s if we ever find ourselves falling fowl to these laws.
I also find that the Net is full of hate speech that doesn’t get removed so how effective is all the legislation anyway?
Because of this we should avoid legislation by government for such behaviors as we have a criminal code that is much better at dealing with acts of hate and aggression.
Here, have a look;
To my mind we would be better off just letting the market place of ideas, that is the internet, deal with this behavioral problem and leave the thought police out of it because I’ve got a nasty little feeling that if the government gets to rewrite the legislation for 18c we might be in for more regulation rather than less.
From a purely selfish perspective I seem to be able to say and draw what I want without harassment from the authorities of government and as you can see from the meager number of followers I have the market place of ideas has given me a rather low rating.
I would hazard the guess that being so lowly ranked is just not good enough for TPTB and would like to find ways to banish this kind of interaction from the Internet completely.
Call me paranoid (and lots of people do!), but I just don’t trust the authorities inside government (the Deep State) to legislate in my best interests.
To make my point I’ll veer off a little and make mention of this latest regurgitating of the pejorative labeling of a whole raft of different interests and concerns as ‘populist’ politics.
By labeling these concerns and the movements they have spawned as ‘populist’ the people who are pushing this definition are begging the question; if our concerns are deemed ‘populist’ then their concerns must be, by juxtaposition and in opposition to, ‘elitist’.
This is never teased out when these pig-headed ‘elitist’ politicians are interviewed by their chummy media personalities on the MSM. As they get to carp on about how implicitly stupid a large section of the public must be to want to engage with ‘populist’ ideas and politics. This contempt that these type of politicians have just under the text of what they’re saying should be exposed during these interviews by these MSM journos if they had the protection from their corporate bosses.
But they don’t, of course, and that’s why they are as they are. I don’t hate those journos, although there are some who are pretty proud of being corporate shills, but I do think they have to accept this type of criticism because it’s true. It just is. We all know it so denying it is like an Australian Conservative politician telling us they are going to tax the banks on all financial transactions!
In conclusion and IMHO 18c should either be left alone or repealed completely. Anything else just makes me feel uneasy.

I’m back for a third and final time for this cartoon. It may be a little confusing but then again so are a lot of things. Climate change science being one of them. Are we having a trans-climate experience? Is this just the sublime fashion of the time to see everything as in some kind of transition? Are we being indoctrinated to thinking that we live in a trans-culture where you go to sleep thinking about your mortgage only to wake up in stockings and high-heels?
Probably…..But it’s time to unleash my latest salvo in my one man fight to save the world from being at the mercy of royalty who insist on 3 minute boiled eggs upon returning from the hunt. Of which no eggs must be spared while waiting for the Prince. 3 minutes and whoops, no Prince yet, off you go to the trash!
…On to the next eggs as the staff await eagerly for the Princes return!
On average it works out to about 100 eggs wasted while waiting for the Prince to finish his killing in the woods.
There is no such thing as a beneficial human parasite class.
I see that MT has come out and said they will change the wording of 18c in the Racial Discrimination Act to make it such that you can’t harass someone. What exactly does that mean, in a legal sense, to harass someone? Does it have to be toward a specific person or entity or can it be applied as a blanket term to cover all sorts of behaviors towards others on line and off?
Wouldn’t insulting someone or some corporate identity (seeing as corporations have the same legal status as humans) be labelled as harassment by this legislative slight of hand?
By taking out the specific language of insult or offend and replacing it with the one very broad term of harassment are we possibly enabling TPTB to be able to use the new wording to exclude many, many, behaviors that were previously outside the remit of this legislation?
If we get mired in the spurious arguments about race or ethnic origin we loose sight that these prejudices are encouraged because it confuses people to recognize most people just want to trade, not kill. Hatred and fear is such an easy way to get people to do what you want if that be your mind-set. If you have the power to implement it through the school curriculum then you have the blighters programmed with consciousness triggers that will shut-down certain lines of reasoning.
Such as the government lies to us constantly.
They have to. They’ve been doing such an atrocious job up until now but with the new Labor Government in power in Western Australia I’m utterly convinced that the Party will now feature wine and beer rather than Marina Abramovic!
