BREAKING

SCOTUS acts on the US election:

“It is ordered that the following allotment be made of The Chief Justice and the Associate Justices of this Court among the circuits, pursuant to Title 28, United States Code, Section 42”

Source: Supreme Court
supremecourt.gov/about/circuita…
Why does this mean?

The circuits SCOTUS has oversight over determine which Supreme Court justice is responsible for, and takes the lead, in cases brought before them

The swing states go to:

MI -Brett M. Kavanaugh
WI – Amy Coney Barrett
PA – Samuel A. Alito
GA – Clarence Thomas
How many of you knew that accomplished Harvard legal scholar Alan Dershowitz is on Trump’s legal team, and has stated his belief that this will all end in Trump’s favour at the US Supreme Court?

Yes, he’s partial as he’s on team Trump, but he’s no joke lawyer.

Lockdowns are the enemy:

“the government's stark 'Protect the NHS' warning may have actually cost lives..many with life-threatening conditions & cancers didn't seek help..the messaging, which was later withdrawn, saw hospital admissions plummet by 90%”

thesun.co.uk/news/13260175/…
“Hospital bed occupancy for the beginning of this month was actually lower than the five-year average for November...”
“The number of people in ICU beds is also currently lower than normal for this time of year, with approximately 70 per cent currently full, compared to 80 per cent in previous years.”

“PPE supplies, £18b of public money was awarded, £10.5b of it without any competition, in more than 8600 contracts by the end of July, with 86% awarded by..health department & its..bodies. To suck up these contracts, shell companies appeared from nowhere”

“a Spanish businessman called Gabriel González Andersson was paid £21m for assisting an American jewellery designer with no experience of supplying PPE..won contracts..worth about £250m, enough for 8 months of supply but at almost double the market rate per item”
“My advice? (The PM) should read this report several times, hopefully flushed red with shame & reflect on the Tory tradition of caring about fostering healthy institutions, including the civil service”

Brexit wars came, then Trump wars followed. They won both.

Brexit wars II was to “get Brexit done”. They won.

Trump wars II just started.

I would think at least we in the UK learnt the lesson of hubristic dismissal & thoughtless wanton denial by now. Apparently not.

Listen.
Again, whoever wins (it isn’t over yet, by a long way) what admittedly concerns me is just how quickly mainstream pundits - almost with unanimity - are prepared to repeat the same mistakes, over & again.

This incurious dismissal of Trump voter concerns is very bad for *everyone*
Even a *very* brief internet search reveals Trump voter concerns that are at the very least worth pondering.

And yes, I’ve also looked at the “disinformation” rebuttals.

Look at both.

Why have we become so incurious?

Whatever happens, hubris & blind entitlement led mainstream analysis to get so much wrong while ignoring the obvious signs, once again

Agree or disagree with Trump, but stop weaponising our ethnicity or culture to do so.
Because it’s - obviously - far more complicated than that
And he’s been shouting it.

None

Of

Them

Listen.

Even while pretending that they do.
Dear hard-left, *white men* were the biggest anti-Trump voters.

Oh dear.

There goes your narrative.

German spy chief Gerhard Schindler: China is poised to dominate the world

#TAGG 🧿

thetimes.co.uk/article/europe…
“Gerhard Schindler, who led the Federal Intelligence Service (BND) from 2011 to 2016, said Germany needed to curb its “strategic dependence” on Beijing and ban Huawei from its 5G mobile phone network.”
“He also warned that Angela Merkel’s liberal approach to the 2015 migrant crisis had left Germany with a “large reservoir” of young Muslim men susceptible to violence and jihadist ideology, and that the true scale of the danger was only now becoming clear.”
