US Presidential Election
Kevin McCullough [https://everipedia.org/wiki/lang_en/Kevin_McCullough] predicted previous elections more accurately than others. His prediction:
The demographics favour the Democrats and Biden, but I would not necessarily write off Trump, whose own “virus” experience obviously bolsters his own views on the Coronavirus generally. It might be objected that everyone is different etc, but fact is, Trump is 74, in a poor state of health and fitness, yet has recovered in days and having had only minor treatment.
Most people are predicting a win for Biden, and for all I know they may be right, but I wonder whether that really will be the result. Still, whichever candidate wins, (((they))) will win…
A young country
In years, the USA is still relatively young, a fact underlined by the recent death of one Lyon Gardiner Tyler [https://www.telegraph.co.uk/obituaries/2020/10/09/lyon-gardiner-tyler-historian-spanned-history-grandson-americas/], the grandson (yes, grandson, not great-grandson) of John Tyler, the 10th President of the USA, and who annexed Texas: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Tyler
John Tyler was already 46 years old when the Battle of The Alamo occurred, in 1836. He became U.S. President at the age of 50, in 1841.
Imagine that…someone whose grandfather was born in 1790, during the reign of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette, and only months after the French Revolution and the Storming of the Bastille, has only just died! To me, it’s almost incredible. My own (maternal) grandfather was born in 1901.
For all that, in some respects the USA gives an old impression, one lacking in youthfulness. Its personification, after all, is an old man, “Uncle Sam”.
BBC World Service
I occasionally remind people, who perhaps never heard the BBC World Service in its 1970s/1980s heyday, how good it was, and how rubbish it now is. Last night, they had some spiteful-sounding black girl talking rubbish about the 1977 “battle” in Lewisham, London: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Lewisham
Biased throughout, the 15-30 minute piece never attempted to give a balanced view, or any perspective. There was one main interviewee, a black man who was an “antifascist” activist at the time. Poor.
Never go back
They say “never go back“. Usually that is good advice. It can be disturbing to see again places once known, and even loved, changed. That can be so even when the changes have improved the place in question. All the same, there is a strange fascination in seeing again places you once knew well. Google Earth can be addictive in this regard. It is a peculiar feeling to see just how quickly the world changes. In 20, 30, 40, 50 years, an area can change out of all recognition. Fascinating but unsettling.
Allegra Stratton might usefully take note of the above tweets.
Well, isn’t that interesting? No doubt a…co-incidence(?). All the same, it would tend to support the idea that “Covid-19” was created for a purpose, a purpose connected with the “Great Reset”…
Free Ursula Haverbeck!!
The BBC too. Its output is now of incredibly low quality, something most obvious on the BBC News on television. Endless “interviews” on Skype with boring and usually non-white persons, very little foreign news and that mostly of little depth, or even casual interest. Without the “licence fee” (enforced tax), the BBC would just go out of business. The “licence fee” protects it, enables it to pay ex-footballers a million or two a year, newsreaders half a million a year and many others £300,000, £200,000 or whatever. No wonder most are unwilling to rock the boat by standing up for the future of European humanity!
