Reforming Reform

 
I recently stated that I had decided not to vote for Reform UK in the upcoming general election because of the shameful way they had betrayed their candidates in the recent local government elections, see: https://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.com/2024/06/farage-is-back-again.html. However, just a few days later I watched an interview with Reform's deputy leader, Ben Habib, on Times Radio. The presenter spends the whole ten minute interview focused on a single issue, the "chequered past" of their election candidate for the Bexhill and Battle constituency, Ian Gribbin. It's the usual story; Mr Gribbin made some wrongthink comment at some time in the past in an irrelevant context and then stands for the party in the election, and the leadership are therefore "informed" about it, even though he apologized. Mr Habib does a good job of rejecting the suggestion that Gribbin should be deselected. Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q2FjBDgGBEo. What's more Nigel Farage has been in a similar interview and also declined to submit. I must say, it was rather cringeworthy to see Richard Tice standing beside his new leader, nodding along with such an innocent look on his face. Source: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/articles/cjmmrwexv4ko. This is progress. It is obvious that since Nigel got back, the leadership of Reform have had a get together and decided quietly to reverse their previous policy of instinctively throwing anybody their enemies point to under the bus. I still believe they should apologize to all the previous outcasts and offer them their nominations back for all future elections. Hopefully that will be their next step. I might vote Reform after all.

Goblin Problem

 
A few years ago I reported on a strange outbreak of cases from southern Africa about mysterious creatures terrorizing communities, see the background links below. Now a new spate of "goblin" encounters has broken out in the same region; and they are remarkably similar in detail. Once again a police station is targeted. Mabed Ngulani, a councillor from Bulilima in Matabeleland, Zimbabwe, explained how policemen refused to enter their station because it is haunted by these creatures. Apparently the officers were followed home by succubi-like monsters which then climbed on the roofs of their houses and sexually assaulted them in their sleep. Fear of the goblins then spread throughout the local area. Source: https://cite.org.zw/police-officers-desert-station-citing-goblin-attacks/. This is apparently a regular thing and goes back a very long way in history. They call such a creature tokoloshe. There are ways and means of protecting yourself from a tokoloshe. You can get a sangoma, a medicine man, to cast a spell to banish them or you can take herbal substances that act as a repellent. One simple method is to sleep on a bed that is very high. It's quite normal to see beds in Zimbabwe that are five or six feet off the ground, resembling a bunk-bed without a lower bunk. It's easy to laugh at such antics and dismiss them as a childish superstition believed in by a primitive culture; however, there are a lot of similarities between tokoloshe encounters and those reported by white westerners experiencing sleep paralysis. This is something I get myself quite often, once a fortnight or so. I've had it my whole life so it doesn't bother me. I just wake up unable to move my body, apart from my eyes. I just wait and after a few minutes it wears off and I wake up properly. Occasionally, only about five or six times, I've seen strange things in the bedroom with me. See: https://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.com/2015/03/sleep-paralysis-and-shadow-people.html and: https://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.com/2016/06/sleep-paralysis-again.html. I'm lucky; some people see these entities every night and often they are far more aggressive. They are surprisingly similar in appearance and behaviour to the tokoloshe. How come people of such different racial, geographic and cultural backgrounds see the same things? There are only two possibilities. Either every single human brain is hardwired to produce certain images and experiences under certain states of consciousness, and that requires a lot of explanation; or what we are seeing is objectively real. Which is more likely?

William Anders Dies

 
The Apollo 8 astronaut and former diplomat William Anders has died. This is sad and his loved ones have my deepest condolences. The manner of his demise has an almost Hollywood like romanticism. He was flying a Beechcraft T34 Mentor, a 1950's vintage military training aircraft. He flew low over Puget Sound in Washington USA when the plane was seen to attempt some kind of aerobatic and then dropped nose first into the water. Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EcCftcjQ0EU. Mr Anders' body was recovered. It has not been stated whether the remains of the aircraft was. It is likely it sank; in which case, can it be salvaged from the seabed? This will be essential for any coroner's enquiry to established why he died. He was ninety years old and maybe that's too old to fly solo. However, he was a perfectly qualified pilot with over eight thousand hours experience including active interception missions with the US Air Force. He broke no current FAA flying regulations. He was the US ambassador to Norway from 1976 to '77; but he is most famous for being one of the three astronauts aboard Apollo 8, the first manned spacecraft to leave earth orbit and fly to the moon. This mission had no lunar module and it was seven months later that the first landing on the moon took place with Neil Armstrong and Apollo 11. However, Apollo 8 was famous for being the first ever manned mission to the moon... supposedly. Mr Anders was most famous for taking some unique photographs including some of the first ever of the earth from deep space. One is called "Earthrise" and is particularly powerful, showing our home planet above the lunar horizon. I can't help but ask, had he said something to somebody? I hope the rest of his family are safe. If any "accidents" happen to them too, we must shout it loud.

Farage is Back... Again!

 
Whether you love or hate him, nobody can say Nigel Farage ceases to surprise. He is one of the most capricious, and dare I say inconsistent, politicians Britain has ever had. He began his career as a hero for Brexiteers, long before the word had ever been coined. He then caused a split in his original party, UKIP, and founded the Brexit Party. This is technically a company owned primarily by Farage, but the electoral commission did accept it as a political party so it could run in elections. In 2021 it changed its name to Reform UK, a silly name in my opinion. Shortly after this, but not as a result, Nigel announced his second retirement from politics his first being the day after the 2016 Brexit referendum victory. Richard Tice took over as leader and became most notorious for sacking a number of candidates because Hate Not Hope ordered him to, see: https://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.com/2024/05/gb-news-vs-ofcom.html. Now, as we approach the eighth anniversary of Referendum Day, on the third of June, Nigel announced his return to the throne of Reform UK. What was really bizarre was that just a few weeks earlier he had revealed plans to abandon Britain altogether and travel to America to campaign for Donald Trump in this year's US presidential election. He admitted this was a mistake, which is admirable; it's far more than most politicians do. His reason for changing his mind is that he has seen "a rejection of the political class" in this country and he wanted to be a part of that revolt. He said the surge in Reform's popularity was "a new phenomenon" and he is encouraged by opinion polls on the continent ahead of the upcoming European Parliamentary elections for hard right populists like himself. Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NdnzlDZ12pk.
 
Will I vote for Reform? Well if you look through their manifesto, see: https://www.reformparty.uk/our-contract-contents, I agree with almost all of it. I don't think we should abolish the House of Lords, but I am very keen that we should scrap HS2, stop NHS privatization and leave the ECHR, see: https://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.com/2023/10/hs2-north-scrapped.html. However, will Nigel Farage reinstate the candidates unfairly dismissed by Richard Tice? Will he apologize to them? A friend of mine and former UKIP activist, Daniel Bostock, has stated that he feels Farage betrayed the UKIP members in a similar way to Tice, see: https://www.bitchute.com/video/HZLaKdIzE6Q/. Is Reform nothing but controlled opposition? Possibly. I am suspicious of how Farage seems to be tolerated far more by the establishment than other populists like Jeremy Corbyn and Donald Trump. The answer is no, I will not be voting Reform UK. If I vote at all in this upcoming election it will be for another small party or an independent. If the IOA stand a parliamentary candidate I might support them again, see: https://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.com/2024/05/i-backed-winner.html. Nigel is standing in the Clacton constituency. He has replaced the previous candidate from his own party, Anthony Mack; who is now challenging Farage as an independent. Nigel has never been elected before; some define him as the most influential statesman who has never sat in office. It is likely this safe Tory seat will flip purple. We will see. As far as the election goes generally, I don't think I will cover it in any detail; it will simply be too boring! Labour is going to win, but their victory will be very pyrrhic and anticlimactic. The electorate are not backing Keir Starmer because they are captivated by his dream for a better Britain. No, they probably regard him as a corrupt slimy greasy haired knob just like I do. Labour will win by the default of apathy. The turnout is going to be a record low and most of the voters who backed Boris in 2019 will just stay at home or vote Reform. Maybe the despair of the outcome will be a lesson for us all. Democracy is one of the biggest buzz-words in the English language; it is loaded down like no other with emotional and cultural baggage. Wars have been fought over democracy which have cost the lives of millions. Some people will start weeping at the very mention of the word. The quest for democracy has produced some of the most dramatic tales in history. Yet most democratic countries, even very old democracies, are suffering from a terrible malaise. Democratic governments have a catastrophic credibility problem in their relationship with their citizens; some political leaders even have approval ratings in single figures. Citizens now usually vote for negative reasons instead of positive; meaning they'll vote for somebody they don't like in order to keep somebody they like even less out of office, rather than to try and elect somebody they do like. Democratic countries today are ruled by some of the most loathsome people imaginable; cruel, cowardly, weak, gutless, heartless, stupid, selfish and deceitful. Despite the fact that nominally we can "choose our leaders", these kinds of people always rise to the top and nobody seems to know why, let alone how to stop them. This malaise is growing. I can only hope that the obvious perception of the problem will finally generate a solution.

Would the Real Kevin Russell Please Stand Up?

 
Dr David Clarke has returned to the Calvine UFO case in his latest Substack essay. There have been a few developments and he continues to maintain a comparatively rational stance. I'm pleased to say he still rejects the absurd clown's day off dismissals I mention in the background links below. A man called Richard Grieve has come forward to tell Philip Mantle he worked at the hotel in Pitlochry in 1990 and so knew the two photographers. It is interesting that he did so before Dr Clarke's August 2022 story was published and until then a link between the hotel and the photographers was not widely known. The problem is, "Kevin Russell" remains illusive. I'm starting to wonder if that was ever his real name. Even when he was handing over a print of the photo privately to an RAF officer he may have decided to sign the back with a pseudonym, anticipating trouble. Maybe the real photographer is Richard Grieve and he told Mantle his story as an active decoy because he feels nervous that this old story has been dug up. Craig Lindsay can't remember the names of the witnesses and Mr Grieve says neither was called Kevin. A friend on Facebook has just suggested that the two chefs may have been threatened or paid off. Quite possibly; we know they received unwanted visits from government agents. David has worked closely with a photographic analyst called Andrew Robinson who demonstrates that the original crude photocopy was of the real print. Unfortunately Clarke then falls back down the skeptic rabbit hole when he tries to link the object in the photograph to the F117 Nighthawk, which had only been declassified three years earlier. He also suspects that it might be the experimental prototype codenamed "Hopeless Diamond". He demonstrates this in true skepper fashion by putting the two images together and saying the designs "clearly resemble the craft photographed in Scotland" when they very obviously don't. A toddler with a shape-sorter could see that. What's more, his latest news article repeats the witness' testimony: "Then the diamond craft shot vertically into the sky and disappeared without making a sound." For Clarke to be right, this part of the story needs to be apocryphal. It might well be, of course; but simply to assume so is a bit too convenient. It allows Clarke to repeat his rather narrow-minded "there are only two possibilities..." statement. Source: https://drclarke.substack.com/p/calvine-ufo-revisited. (Mail Online is now behind a paywall... is that a good or bad thing?... However, if you want to read Dr Clarke's newspaper article a friend has photographed the paper edition in good quality so it is legible when you magnify it. I have the image so leave your email in the comments if you want me to send it to you.) I've explained before how supposedly revealing UFO's to be secret aircraft might actually be an elaborate double-bluff, for example: https://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.com/2020/06/bob-lazar-on-richplanet-virtual-tour.html and: https://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.com/2023/08/the-aviary-film-review.html. Despite this, it is now very fashionable to believe the opposite. I don't know specifically if Dr Clarke does so, but he appears to be entertaining the idea. If he falls for that trick he will not find his way to the truth about the Calvine UFO.

Big Spammer is Watching You 2- Visit Pakistan

 
See here for essential background: https://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.com/2013/07/big-spammer-is-watching-you.html.
It has happened again! This time it was really weird. I watched a twenty minute video about a luxury coach in Pakistan. The film shows it being cleaned and maintained. This is followed by some scenes showing more conventional long-distance public road transport from that same country being driven and built. Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QtyKqyPvEE4. I watched the entire video at normal speed and then went to check my emails... and I gasped! I had just received two emails with the subject line: "Visit Pakistan"; one was from a website called travelup.com advertising the best value plane flights and hotels for a holiday in Pakistan. The second was from the Pakistani National Tourism Coordination Board, see: https://tourism.gov.pk. Both emails arrived while I was watching that YouTube upload. How is this possible? Coincidence? I'm sure your average skeppa would say so, see: https://hpanwo.blogspot.com/2021/08/skeptics-portal.html. I know that in this situation there is nothing inherently malevolent involved in my online activities being traced and scrutinized in this way; it's simply a standard marketing practice that targets me with specific promotional material because some AI has decided that me watching that video means I might be planning a trip to Pakistan. I'm not, as it happens. Despite that, the same technology and methods could be used by the government to profile me and that information could be used to my detriment in numerous different ways. That worries me.

David Grusch One Year On

 

See here for essential background: https://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.com/2023/06/david-grusch-mini-portal.html.
It is now an entire year to the day since David Grusch first hit the media with his astonishing claims that the US government is hiding the secret that intelligent non-human life in interacting with planet earth and its inhabitants. Now, a year later, where do we stand? Much of the last twelve months have seen something of an "empire strikes back" situation. The NDAA has reached the statue books without the "Schumer amendment"; and despite continuing efforts by congressmen, lawyers, reporters and members of the public, there has been a successful backlash. We should not be surprised. Did anybody seriously think this could not happen? Did anybody pretend there were no reactionaries inside the programme who would not try to resist the post-2017 developments? As far as I'm concerned this is tantamount to a confession. If what we have been saying was some terrible folly, which is what the skeptics insist, then why all this effort to halt the transparency process? Why not just smirk in Congress during the bill's reading and laugh about it in the bar afterwards? Why not just leave it in peace to gather dust like so many other bits of useless legislation? That's the good news; the gatekeepers are operating without cover, which in the long term will be fatal for them. David Grusch has been constantly criticized for failing to provide hard evidence of his claims, but this criticism is made by people with no patience and a lack of understanding. As Ross Coulthart points out with typical Australian bluntness, the Disclosure process is not some kind of entertainment provided for the sake of UFO Twitter, it is a serious matter that must be handled with care and composure. We social media pundits are not always entitled to be told every single thing that's going on as and when it happens. David Grusch cannot work miracles, so stop demanding that he does. Here's a prime example: https://x.com/MiddleOfMayhem/status/1798379619764388022. Grow up and get over yourself, Greenstreet! (And find a new hairdresser for goodness sake!) In fact, generally, many UFOlogists get castigated for trying to work within the inevitable limitations of the subject; whose essential nature means that usually all that does come out from behind the veil of secrecy is the insiders' memories. Remember, despite the entire frantic mobilization of the Truth Embargo's political and media machine, we are still moving forward. Congressman Robert Garcia has just introduced a new bill to replace the Schumer amendment and Karl Nell has made more very positive comments about UFO's, see: https://hpanwo-radio.blogspot.com/2024/05/third-rail-radio-programme-177.html. It's better to be an optimist than a pessimist. If you're an optimist you can be proved wrong and, sure, you feel disappointed; but if you're a pessimist and you are proven wrong you miss out on all the fun, you uninvite yourself from the party. David Grusch has shown himself to be genuine and committed. He has stuck by his guns and has been a hundred percent consistent. He has related his information publicly whenever he can. A time will come when he will truly be appreciated by everybody for his service to his country and the world.
