Looking back on a bad, bad year

My Gossip blog was started in January this year. A dream I cherish is to get back to poetry and creative writing, but there is a battle raging which I am compelled to join against a privileged elite who own the media and propagate the earth with distorted news stories. These news stories are presented in such a way as to seduce an unwitting public into believing they are true. Until everyone is aware of this I cannot return to the writing I most enjoy. Good people who tell the truth, like Mordechai Vanunu, Bradley Manning, Talha Ahsan, Babar Ahmad, Don Siegelman and Julian Assange have had their freedom taken from them by governments whose aim is to create wars in countries with mineral wealth in order to steal those resources. Apart from only a brief mention of Don Siegelman this blog has gone into bat on behalf of the aforementioned prisoners of conscience and next year will be taking up the case of former Senator Siegelman.

Julian Assange has had the most coverage because his case provides the most glaring example of the sinister media, and those who control it, at work. Nearly everybody who watches television or listens to radio is under the impression that Assange has committed a crime in Sweden. It is a lie. There are people who have committed crimes against Sweden, like those who assassinated Dag Hammarskjöld, those who assassinated Bernt Carlsson and those who assassinated Olaf Palme. These assassins all walked free. Perhaps Sweden should concentrate on solving real crimes instead of trying to hand over a good man to its friends in the CIA.

Over the last twelve months there have been many injustices making it difficult to know where to start. It is particularly frustrating when there is so little good news and so much bad news. Judging by the number of readers the most popular blog posts in order were:

The Rape of Julian Assange
Two Extradited Poets
Why the UK has not extradited Julian Assange directly to the US

While these were popular for a blog that is less than 12 months old my most important contribution to web media publications came in December. The one of which I am most proud is a story I broke which has still not been taken up by MSM and I wonder if it ever will:

Breaking news on McCormac culpability

It tells how Billy McCormac, through his connections with Karl Rove, as advisers to Prime Minister Reinfeldt, and using McCormac's Prime PR company, are seen to be the main culprits in setting up Julian Assange for CIA rendition to the United States. McCormac, because he appears to have no history prior to going to Sweden, is suspected of being a CIA Swedish plant. His late father though is an equally interesting character. He was responsible for the nuclear tests that blew an almighty hole in the ozone layer right over Australia, the South Pacific and Antarctica.

Two other stories I helped break this month, within the last week in fact, which were published in the progressive radical News Junkie Post are:

How Sweden collaborated with CIA on renditions and framing of Assange.

Is a Zionist Connection at Play to Frame Wikileaks’ Assange in Sweden? 

Let's hope things improve in the New Year so that before it ends I can get back to writing the arty-farty stuff I ought to be writing.

HAPPY 2013!


  1. Then the arty-farty stuff will just have to wait until 2014, John!

    Here's hoping this little piece of mine "From Chequers to Lockerbie" bags one of the Paul Foot 2012 Awards (to be announced in February 2013).

  2. I suspect you're right Patrick. I hope too that "From Chequers to Lockerbie" grabs a Paul Foot award. Foot was a good journalist. He would have wanted it I'm sure.
