Saudi Hypocrisy

Astonishing hypocrisy! Saudi and its affiliates demand end to support of terrorism while they themselves are some of its largest funders. Their list of demands, as reported in the Guardian, should be translated as: 1) Curb ties with Iran = No talking to Shia Moslems. 2) Sever all ties to terror organisations = Declare Moslem […]

Why Are We Here?

I thought to let you know that the 4 part series I have been making is now finished and available in most parts of the world (including, it now seems, the UK) on Curiosity Stream.

When the first small piece of shit finally sticks.

So could it really be that after years of stonewalling, Draghi, the ECB and the cabal of central bankers and regulators, are finally being dragged blinking in to the light? Funny how so often the biggest most powerful criminals, the untouchables, are brought down by the smallest of their crimes. The one they thought so beneath them they […]

Among them was the Irish Whistleblower, Jonathan Sugarman, who when UniCredit Ireland was breaking the law in very serious ways reported it to the Irish regulator.

Here is a 9 minute interview I did recently for Real Media about Money Laundering and what happened to me when I wrote about it. It’s an extract from a much longer and wide ranging interview. In case you’re interested I wrote in more length about the incident in “Making the Truth Illegal – revisited”

A note on Deutsche Bank

Deutsche Bank, one of Europe’s behemoths, is in very deep trouble having lost 90% 0f its share price value since 2007, has been falling sharply all this last year (48% loss this year) and, with its $42 Trillion in Derivatives exposure was singled out by the IMF, as the bank which , “appears to be the most […]

Listening to Brexit

I have been listening to Brexit and it has been unedifying. My lasting impressions is that there was very little actual listening going on. It was largely just an eruption of bile and bigotry.  The British body politic emptying itself from both ends at once. Everyone offended by the actions of the others, seemingly pleased with […]
