When people refer to ‘integrity’, it can mean different things to different people.
To me, it means that all parts in the machine or organism are functioning properly. That is clearly not the case in our western society and one cause is gaming the system. Churchmouse mentions this Roger Stone a lot but I’d refer anyone to the Wiki entry on Stone.
First thing is that Wiki is essentially, on bios, a leftist outlet, I expected a hatchet job on Stone and got one. However, even though much of it can be dismissed, some things couldn’t, in my book. The swingers parties, the dirty tricks – this is no way to conduct business and if you’ve built a career on dirty tricks, then where does that leave you in people’s minds?
At this moment, the man is pro-us but I note that even Trump does not employ him, just uses his inside expertise on occasion, a point the article made. That he’s been poisoned these past few weeks is hardly surprising and if Clinton indulges in the same things he does, then it seems odds on to me – this is how those people do business. It’s a mug’s game.
The Donald has seen this of late and I did a long time back, pre-blogging – you’ll find no dirty dealings on my computer or in my flat, nor on any hard drive I’ve left with others. There simply isn’t any, not for any moral reason but because I’m under such scrutiny the whole time, not least by the govt, that it would be insanity to have anything incriminating. I’m pretty sure the Donald operates that way.
But the left is leaving itself wide open, not just with its Pussy Head March and other bleating but because of something far more sinister. Yes, there is the voter fraud and we’ve seen it in operation, thanks to the power of social media, which brings such things to light instantly in election campaigns.
Our own type over here is the e-petition on the govt’s website. We saw the millions of signatures from far-flung places on earth in the push for a second referendum – one commenter at Breitbart reminds us:
There are votes on there from (according to their information):
British Antarctic Territories
Papua New Guinea
South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands
St Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha
St Kitts and Nevis
‘The Occupied Palestinian Territories’
Turks and Caicos Islands
Tuvalu (15 people, apparently)
Vatican City (our old favourite from the Brexit petitions)
Wallis and Futuna (WTF?)
Western Sahara (Must have great WiFi)
And the count for ‘signatures from the UK’ does not match the count for ‘signatures from UK Constituencies’.
And another commenter explains how emails are set up, used and then discarded – the govt only needs an initial email, which pretty well renders such e-petitions next to worthless.
The game is used by the Mail too, which suddenly has over a thousand likes or dislikes registered for a point of view they’re pushing. [Disclaimer: no doubt the Mail is totally legit and has never done anything shady in its life.]
Perhaps we could say we’re living in a ‘post-truth’ world. Take the pic at the top of the page – it’s of the German protests against immigration, which naturally you never see on the MSM. To me, that is sheer dishonesty and it does indirectly prejudice people who read or watch the MSM but the e-petition thing is more than dishonesty – it’s out-and-out fraud, as in bring in the fraud squad.
The parliament debated the second referendum last time on the strength of this scam, which cost the taxpayer and was useless … and now here it is again, over blocking entry to the elected leader of a major trading partner.
Is the govt foolish to indulge in such things? Yes. But what else can they do if the signatures seem to be around the million? This is where we’re all trapped – in the organized corruption and fraud of the left, plus those of the right who see these as great tactics.
