The laundry ironing of all of that is Putin was helped to power by sir dearlove.
Putin being a connoisseur of young kids meant he was controllable enough and why all the oligarchs bank in the UK.
Yeah don't buy that for a second, pretty basic Brit intel smear.

And KGB wouldn't have allowed someone so easily blackmailed to rise to even medium authority.

Brits specialise in it.
Pretty sure the ottoman hammam’s have been around for a while, dancing boys of afghan were we’ll and truely around before the Brits.
the Italians. Spaniards, French, and Japanese all have bathhouses for this type of thing as well.
we’re not talking a last couple decade practice here. Sexual blackmail is how intergenerational power is kept.
About the only change is homosexuality isn’t the go to anymore. As doesn’t have the same stigma.

Hahah that’s true, and Ex-KGB agent Alexander Litvinenko accused Russian President Putin before he died.
might've accidentally picked the wrong country to seek asylum.
He wrote an article about it - specifically said he was, that the KGB knew and that was the end of his career advancement - in response to public photos of Putin kissing a young boy on the belly button, three months before he was poisoned.

Is that why they kept Savile around?
It’s the reason why he still keeps his OBE KCSG posthumously.

what happened with Savile was a disgrace, everyone knew and had to isolate him from kids on set without his knowledge. They risked being fired and ostracised from the industry if they told, and a lot did, but it was buried in the media. This was certainly a different time before the interwebs.

Alistair Crowley was another who liked to dress up, speak gibberish about Egypt/hiram abiff, drug up unsuspecting powerful people and record it for blackmail.

Back to topic, did Morrison government fall into a Pompeo/Trump trap by calling out China?
looks like China will source barley and beef, from USA and Russia.


Shanghai | China says it will buy more American barley and Russian beef as part of previously agreed trade deals in a blow for Australian exports facing restrictions due to political tensions between Beijing and Canberra.

Barley imports from the United States to China would be effective from this week, according to a notice on the China Customs website.

The deal was part of China's agreement to buy an additional $US200 billion ($310 billion) in additional American goods and services under a trade deal.

China is preparing to slap steep tariffs on Australian barley imports after an 18-month anti-dumping investigation. China also this week suspended beef exports from four Australian abattoirs.

"US barley products have similar quality levels to Australian barley which is replaceable. It is a shame that Australia is losing its competitive advantage in beef and barley," said Lin Guofa, an analyst with consulting firm Bric Agriculture Group.

"The suspension of the four abattoirs is designed to send a strong signal to deter Chinese traders to import beef from Australia. Most buyers will be fearful now about continuing their business with Australia."
Commodities traders and state media played up the barley announcement, saying it highlighted China was less dependent on Australian agricultural imports than it used to be.
China has indirectly threatened to punish Australia economically after the Morrison government called for an independent inquiryinto the origins of coronavirus pandemic.
One trader quoted a Chinese idiom “Kill the chicken to scare the monkey” which means making an example out of someone to threaten others. "With barley and beef, China is now using Australia as an example (to threaten other countries)," he said.
China on Thursday defended its anti-dumping investigation into Australian barley. Farmers expect China to impose tariffs of up to 80 per cent on the commodity.
"China will make an objective, fair and just decision on sanctions based on the investigation result and we will fully consider all of the opinions of relevant parties," a Commerce Ministry spokesperson said.
China's state media have also been talking up a previously agreed deal to import Russian beef this week. Reports said 10,000 tonnes of Russian beef would enter the Chinese market in 2020 with the first batch of 200 tonnes arriving in early April.
Another report said Russia shipped an export of 21.4 tonnes of beef to China on May 3. China in February also lifted a 19-year import ban of US beef.
"There are varied choices for Chinese consumers nowadays. Australia needs to focus on enhancing its own competitiveness and winning Chinese consumers' preference and trust," the hawkish Global Times said in an article on Friday.
However, traders said there was still huge consumer demand for Australian products in China and no signs so far of a consumer boycott.
There are also doubts about the US-China trade deal which could threaten American agricultural imports into China. US President Donald Trump this week suggested trade with China could cease altogether.
Mr Trump said in an interview with Fox Business Network broadcast on Thursday that he had no interest in speaking to China's President, Xi Jinping, and hinted he was open to severing ties with the world's second-largest economy completely.

Why would the Chinese want to cut its imports with Australia and increase with the Americans given all of Trumps comments regarding China’s handling of the pandemic ?

Trump is a distraction, always has been. He can say what he wants for a headline.
The real work is going on behind the scenes.. the trade agreement that the USA signed with China. Fixing a imbalance which included a push for importing agricultural products. The USA is making them honour the deal,
Aust is the cannon fodder in the middle.

Believe it or not Crowleys predictions were pretty spot on in terms of prophecies.

He even called the new age, (of Horus in all that 1850s plus western occutism aristocratic w***ery) the age of the crowned and conquering child. Have a good look around and you'll see he's right on the money. While everyone else was predicting a future full of technological Utopianism or dystopianism Crowley looked around and said yep, the future will be all about immature, selfish, ego tripping self gratification.

As much as Trump is a ******* whose incompetence made this situation immeasurably worse in seppoville, it's not just him, or his political franchise that do mind numbing stupid things.
