It was absolutely fascinating watching the Boris Johnson’s defence of Dominic Cummings on Sunday evening, during which the #ToryAnalytica puppet Prime Minister was perfectly at ease with ‘justifying’ his lies with text book pathological hypocrisy and hubris.

What’s even more fascinating is how the UK population seem so perfectly at ease with it. Not for much longer I can assure you.

We working masses have become so desensitised to UK Government serial ‘incompetence’ and corruption we’ve come to expect and indeed accept UK Government dishonesty, to the point where millions of sensible people have been worn down and disenfranchised by the relentless normalisation of political ‘Doublethink’ positions, which have only been able to succeed because #ToryAnalytica have gone largely unchallenged through a combination of naively ineffective and complicit stenographer ‘journalism’.

An example of such ‘Doublethink’ – holding two opposing, contradictory views as a simultaneous ‘truth’ – are intelligent, informed but Machiavellian-agitative media and political figures who claim to have voted Remain but continue to insist, with some vitriolic victimhood that the “democratic will of the British people” be ‘respected’…

…despite knowing in the years since the ‘referendum’, notwithstanding the Brexit campaign illegalities and irregularities themselves, that Brexit unavoidably remains a foreseeable socioeconomic catastrophe (exactly what COVID19 ‘incompetence’ is intended to deliver globally) and therefore a democracy ending disaster – that will inevitably result in militarisation.

Because militarisation is the only possible route and manner by which Brexit could be ever be ‘delivered‘ at all, as I wrote in 2018 in ‘Brexit: All Roads to Rome – Militarisation‘;

‘That is, any ‘democratic’ decision that needs to be enforced or ‘supported’ by a Government deployment of the military [Operation Yellowhammer] in order it can maintain or secure political power via the streets, ports and infrastructure etc, is in fact in any conventional, consistent, rational-thinking and functioning democracy – a coup d’etat.’

However straightforward examples of Machiavellian duplicity can be observed amongst the hard-core corporate Brexiteer politicians, media and commentariat proto-fascists

…who are now attempting to save their own skins by appearing to distance themselves from their very own modern-day Goebbels as ‘HMS Brexit’ flounders, and about to very publicly break-up on the rocks it so unexpectedly ran aground on in Berlin, on Sunday 25th June 2017 (as outlined in this short video).

Video recorded on 25th June 2018, on the first anniversary of going to Berlin and warning the German Bundes Polizei & Irish Embassy on 250617, of the inevitable #ToryAnalytica coup d’etat militarisation of Brexit and the arrival of a US/UK-led global fascism; “Being in a minority, even in a minority of one, did not make you mad. There was truth and there was untruth, and if you clung to the truth even against the whole world, you were not mad”. Orwell, ‘1984’

A real tragedy in this mess is that there are some elements of the populace – thankfully an ever diminishing minority – who not only expect and accept #ToryAnalytica’s lies on a daily basis – but revel in the dual ‘superiority-persecution complex’; the Doublethink propaganda narratives that underpinned the #BrexitCoup d’etat – and the #TrumpPutin Presidency. Yes, Trump and Brexit are both the same failed coup (more on that shortly).

“We’re an Empire now. We act to create our own reality. And while you are studying that reality we’ll act again. We’re history’s actors and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do”. Karl Rove (2004) Senior Adviser to George Bush

Some it seems will ‘revel’ to the point where the fake empowerment and manipulated victimhood that saturated the emotional-fabric of the Brexit propaganda campaign – and the subsequent #ToryAnalytica-sabotaged ‘negotiations’ – would gloatingly condemn their own grand/children to abject poverty, immiseration and therefore – conflict, perhaps even civil war.

In short, separated by time to knowingly execute their own children by proxy – for the sake of a propaganda injected ‘feelings’ manipulated by Nazi-precedented playbook.

“The people of the United States and our friends and allies will not live at the mercy of an outlaw regime that threatens the peace with weapons of mass murder. We will meet that threat now so that we do not have to meet it later with armies of firefighters, police and doctors on the streets of our cities”. President George Bush, on the eve of the illegal Iraq War, 2003.

Though not even many ordinary, non-complicit Brexiteers are going revel in #ToryAnalytica’s lies for much longer, as they too are going to take to the streets to begin the ‘shouting’.

However what’s imperative for all of us to understand beforehand is that this was always a part of the UK Government’s agenda – to manipulate mass civil unrest – with the original plan being to have we working masses at each other’s throats – not at the occupants of Number 10 Downing Street – as was the case for other directly involved global leaders, governments gaslighting their respective populations.

This is why like or not, acknowledge it or not in UK – #HerdImmunityIsHardBrexit.

However this strategy by itself hasn’t worked to militarise Brexit. Nor will it. Not least because of the perennial normalisation of Patriotic Programming: From Toddler to Teenager to Tabloidhood (2017)

Such has been the effectiveness of this programming and the Thursday night happy-clappy, bias-confirmation #CommunityNation #Volksgemeinschaft ‘peoples community’ propaganda campaign;

…underpinned by a decade-long normalisation of #PatrioticPoverty propaganda but which without a specific, seemingly ‘unrelated’ Plan B militarisation and mobilisation trigger, such as that which could be achieved by the ‘inexplicable’ attempt to restart the dilapidated #HunterstonB nuclear reactor in 2019

“It takes only six weeks to bring a country to crisis, after which, with a violent change of power, structure & economy, you have the period of ‘normalisation’ which may last indefinitely”. Yuri Bezmenov, ex-KGB PsyOps Specialist (speaking here in 1984) Also see ‘Bezmenov’s Babes’ (2018)

…because ‘herd immunity’ on its own, simply hasn’t been enough to trigger a backlash by an already Orwellian-obedient population who’ve already bought into the “new normal” Newspeak narrative.

A population amongst whom, the UK Government need to create the carnage necessary to give themselves the pretext ‘justification’ to deploy the military and in doing so, be seen to ‘re-establish’ law & order – but which will in fact be their pivotal ‘PlanB’ militarisation of Brexit – that will pin the blame on the people themselves as I’ve detailed in ‘The People’s Plague: Our ‘Failure’ To Comply With The Impossible‘ (2020).

However something else we’ve collectively failed to process is that the #ToryAnalytica Government’s ‘management’ of COVID19, is the actually the ‘Hostile Environment’ policy continuation of austerity; UK State-sponsored mass murder that dovetails seamlessly to follow on from their socioeconomic-apartheid (austerity) driven deaths delivered via their corporate-partner sanctions, in order to deliberately induce mass depression, isolation and suicide. However it’s only a matter of time and #ToryAnalytica behaviours before the people realise this.

And the further realisation people are going to come to for themselves, is that the COVID19 lockdown was deliberately imposed too late in order to paint the propaganda picture necessary to manipulate greater control by frightening the wits out of the working masses, so that they could subsequently drive the fear required to maximise compliance with voluntary mass house arrest.

In short, #ToryAnalytica’s deliberate exacerbation by COVID19 ‘governance’ on this island is the ideological extension of their ‘Hostile Environment’ by proxy; specifically by policy continuation of austerity which for those who were already struggling financially and emotionally, resulting inherently in foreboding sense of despairoften leading to psychological and physical isolation – has now been further compounded and imposed as a matter of Lockdown ‘law’ (for we plebs) to collectively arrive at the normalisation of isolation which is designed to further induce mass depression and suicide; individual, collective and socioeconomic forever – making for an infinitely malleable, State subservient population, especially the men who hold the key to the streets.

These outcomes are exactly the same as those that Brexit was/is designed to deliver via a crisis-capitalist coup, in preparation for #ToryAnalytica to handover asset-stripped debt-ridden #BrexitCoup Britain, to their own US/UK corporate-government elite-estate – aka ‘Airstrip One’ – using a ‘contagion’ (& US para/military force) as I detailed and ‘predicted’ a year ago in this May 2019 piece ‘Trump & Brexit: The #DarkTriad Model for a Global Fascist Contagion’.

By monitoring mainstream media for repetition of cyclically reinforced narratives and themes in 2016/17, I developed my ‘Dark Triad’ Model for Fascism (© 2017) in which (model below) there are six principal psychological and physiological ‘push & pull’ drivers;

#Invalidate (by identity-politics demographics)

#Emasculate (individual/organisational)

#Isolate (within individual & mass hive-mind)

#Agitate (attack British/US/Australian etc nationhood & conditioned belief-systems, to seed suspicion & division)

#Segregate (signposting minorities)

#Amalgamate (via patriotic ‘unity’ through victimhood/martyrdom ‘#CommunityNation #Volksgemeinschaft 🌈 propaganda)

Detailed explanations for each of my interlinked emotional-behavioural drivers are in my free download book, (with a clearer version of ‘The Dark Triad’ on page 88).

“Power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in shapes of your own choosing”. Orwell, ‘1984’.

Since Johnson’s defence of Cummings on Sunday (and again last night) I’ve seen many ordinary people and experts alike ask ‘What’s Cummings got on Boris Johnson?’

But this oversimplifies the actual power dynamic; not only because Cummings is Johnson’s ‘Atlantic Bridge’ boss (his US counterpart Bannon hasn’t just dropped off the face of the Earth) but because they all have blackmail material or ‘Kompromat’ – on each other – to some dark degree or other. That just makes common sense.

“In God We Trust, All Others We Monitor” – the motto of US Naval Intelligence – on the lanyard around Cummings neck…

It’s also highly likely that Cummings time in Russia saw meetings, quite probably working tutorials with his Russian counterpart, Putin’s puppet-master Vladislav Surkov. Tutorials which of course would include ‘Active Measures’ and the Kompromat leverage required to keep powerful world leaders and strategists in line and agendas on track globally, even and especially in the face of going out like Saddam or Gaddafi.

This is why, in part, being unrivalled masters of the Machiavellian dark arts Cummings & co still cling to their agenda (no doubt whilst shredding a lot of sensitive documents) and are fully capable of turning any threat into an opportunity – which they began doing with a ‘refreshing’ and ‘energetic verve’ just over a month ago.

You see Cummings took his trip to Durham & Barnard Castle (& potentially a meeting with GlaxoSmithKline) two months ago so #ToryAnalytica knew this truth was about to catch up with them.

So yesterday’s performance by Cummings trying to explain away his actions – and their “consequences” as so succinctly put by Orwell – through a series of incredulous lies, was a part of the ‘renewed’ Machiavellian misdirection propaganda campaign.

Which is why in his ‘Doublespeak’ briefing yesterday Cummings set out in one last desperate attempt to redeploy his worn-out playbook and deliver the political propagandists perfect trifecta;

1 Population agitation: stoking anger amongst the masses and (just like Trump in the US) fomenting non-compliance with lockdown measures, sustaining the ‘second wave’ (& ‘new normal’) narrative;

2 Pantomime Villain: he plays the part of the ‘Bad Guy’ in order the complicit mainstream media can pretext-engineer ‘plausibility’ in the eyes of the population, in preparation for the inevitable (attempted) militarisation. Which as I laid out in my 2017 piece ‘Tedious Twitter Twaddle’ it was and remains the mainstream medianot Dominic Cummings – who were at the forefront of delivering the #BrexitCoup referendum ‘result‘.

3 Victimhood: For the minority of hard-core Brexiteers that are left, he gets to play martyr – to play ‘victim’ of the very same ‘Establishment’ he is part of – just as is their leading ideological decoy Nigel Farage, as I’ve laid out in ‘UKIP MkII – The Brexit Party: An Inconvenient Spoof’ (2019) and Trumpian-attempt to conflate this ‘attack’ by the ‘fake news’ as being ‘anti-Brexit’ with the design being to reinforce and galvanise the Brexiteer bunkered-mindset.

On a personal level, Cummings managed to repeatedly inject his “wife & child” into his narrative. This is because he knows how close he’s flown to the sun and so was attempting to ‘humanise’ himself in the hope that people not only feel sorry for him and indeed identify with him as a ‘family man’ – but for when shit that he’s concocted himself – finally hits the fan.

Which to clarify, the lynchpin-key to successfully militarising the #BrexitCoup doesn’t solely depend on police and military brute-force but on the #ToryAnalytica mainstream media; who need the UK public and the world to believe their version of events – which will attempt to force Brexit.

However as a part of this recently concentrated continuation of Cummings population-agitation strategy, some mainstream media commentators grabbed the opportunity with both hands – having had a ‘head start’ on some of their complicit colleagues and politicians.

Somewhat ‘inexplicably’, this recent campaign has seen a number of trademark-divisive media figures, suddenly being held up as the models of journalistic ‘integrity’ – having seemingly, dramatically U-turned on their previous ideological behaviours. They haven’t. It’s every media man and woman for themselves.

And those that got the jump on their #ToryAnalytica colleagues – media and politicians – simply had closer 55 Tufton Street cartel connections with the editor of the far-right SpikedOnline magazine, who unwittingly left his office server signature behind on my platform referrer;

…with just over 100 visits to my #GaslightingGilligan blog in December 2019 alone, during which he quite probably copied every single piece I’d written since 2017, in order he and others could analyse them. (I was of course only too willing to let them keep visiting – without letting them know – that I knew).

And so my assertion is this; December 2019 was when #ToryAnalytica media figures specifically – who unlike their politician and SpAd counterparts in the COBRA Cabinet – are not privy to aspects of State intelligence, began to realise the coup had all but failed, having been catastrophically interrupted via the German Bundes Polizei and Irish Embassy in Berlin on 25th June 2017 as I’ve detailed in this Open Letter.

Various SpikedOnline visitors, mostly from the ‘editor’ signature periodically came back to check on further articles I wrote earlier this year but promptly stopped visiting (using the SpikedOnline office server) after I deliberately let them know three months later in this piece ‘#ToryAnalytica’s #BrexitCoup Cattle Drive: The Italian Job’ on 16th March 2020, that I could see them visiting #GaslightingGilligan.

(Another significant development was that in being able to see how many times the book itself is downloaded, on the 29th April 2020 some 20+ downloads took place within minutes of each other. I surmise this was a #ToryAnalytica WhatsApp group).

So, mid-March is when they finally realised that not only was the coup finished – bar the shouting – but that they’d lost all control over both their ideologically connected Brexit and COVID19 narratives and as a consequence, another precedented global-propaganda narrative is about to be exposed and processed by the masses, which is designed to divide and rule societies by another normalised branch of identity-politics.

This sustained narrative, which in UK and Australia (& broadly speaking across western democracies) erases a full third of overall victims of domestic violencemen – is now being made to run parallel with the recent lockdown narrative. But it’s about to be dragged kicking and screaming into the light and which explains why my strap-line for #GaslightingGilligan is ‘a paradigm shift in the meaning of domestic abuse’ (and the ‘Atlantic Bridge to ‘1984’).

As such, a sort of correlative ‘litmus test’ can be applied: Those Governments around the world who’ve performed the ‘worst’ in regard to their COVID19 responses and have the highest rates of reported infection and harmed (sabotaged!) their GDP, are not only more likely to be directly involved in this global-fascist coup d’etat – but are also more likely to have an established #GenderAgenda driven media, as well draft (or even actual) #DomesticAbuse &/or ‘Misogynistic Hate Crime’ legislation in place. Why? Because;

“There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What is there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed or enforced or objectively interpreted [Misogynistic Hate Crime/#DomesticAbuse] and then you can create a nation of lawbreakers – and then you cash in on the guilt. Now that’s the system, Mr. Reardon, that’s the game, and once you understand it, you’ll be much easier to deal with”. Ayn Rand, ‘Atlas Shrugged’.

Everything we thought we knew to be true about our reality, is about to change. Everything.

Because the most powerful component of fascist propaganda, of divide and rule; of the drill-down division of societies through identity-politics, is most effectively being invisibly delivered through a global #GenderAgenda which underpins ‘Gaslighting Gilligan‘ (the book) and which I’ve further detailed in my 2018 piece ‘Early Warning Signs of Fascism: Nr5 ‘#RampantSexism‘;

“Invading Iran, taking it over and then coercing it into becoming a different sort of country would take a MILLION MEN”. Admiral West (UK Royal Navy First Sea Lord 2002-06)

A twice 20th Century precedented mass-male guilt-shaming propaganda campaign is being relentlessly pumped into our living-rooms, dressed up as ‘news’ and entertainment‘ on a daily basis.

It’s aim has been to toxically empower women to wear-down and mass emasculate men in order to make them more susceptible to State subservience by propaganda playbook; by demoralising, dehumanising, demonising and guilt-shaming young men into military uniform;

A depiction of the WWI White Feather Women, a ‘timely’ movement (whose ‘remit’ inexplicably became military recruitment!) which was underpinned and ’empowered’ by The Suffragettes; ‘Suddenly producing a large white feather, she jabbed it into his waistcoat. And in another tone, fierce and scornful she added: “You coward! Why don’t you enlist?”

And which has taken various propagandistic forms housed in gender-driven messaging updated from the early 20th century in Imperial Britain…

…and Ireland…

…and Australia (& New Zealand & Canada)…

…and carried through…

…into Weimar Germany leading to the rise of the Nazis, housed in ‘The #MeToo Truth of Nr5 #RampantSexism’ (2020)

“When we can cut man from his own past, then we can cut him from his family, his children, other men… If you’re a man, you’re the last man. Your kind is extinct. We are the inheritors. Do you understand that you’re alone? You are outside of history. You unexist”. Orwell, ‘1984.’

All of which still needs its delayed, patriotic purpose trigger – like its Operation Himmler equivalent – for men to pour their ‘voluntary‘ meaning into a military uniform – on a global western scale;

Furthermore, this is a precedented #GenderAgenda divide and rule campaign which I began tracking and monitoring its subliminal campaign forerunner in the mainstream #WhiteFeatherMedia in September 2016 – over a year before #MeToo became ‘a thing’ in October 2017 and which had the original July 2017 #OpFukuglaschu ‘attack’ succeeded to militarise mainland Britain…

…for which we were all being psychologically softened-up by a sustained ‘inevitability narrative‘ pushed out by the ‘trusted’ UK media, was #MeTooMatrix timed in October 2017 to begin conveyor-belt feeding guilt-shamed young men – as #PatrioticPoverty, #AusterityArmy cannon-fodder ‘volunteers‘ – into a global oil-war – that was to have initially been centred on Iran.

So what now? Well, given that two of these propaganda narratives have been so globally pervasive, the overall agenda is impossible to hide from the masses – or indeed, for the masses to hide from. Populations all over the planet will reverse engineer the propaganda to arrive at Auschwitz.

And when they do – things will get messy for a while.

In UK, reverse engineering Brexit alone will take the people back to that sudden spate of 2017 Springtime terrors (it’s all in the book) and so at worst (for the population) the only pyrrhic thread of salvation #ToryAnalytica have left, is to manufacture a mainland Britain based catastrophe; i.e. a #BlackSwan event such as #OpFukuglaschu or #HunterstonB, or perhaps even a northern France nuclear disaster such as #Flamanville and/or commit to major (illegal) war with Iran or China perhaps, led by their corrupt ‘Corpolitique‘ partners in the US.

At best (for the population – until we’re willing to wake up and take collective charge of our future) all #ToryAnalytica can do is delay their inevitable demise by maintaining our mass cognitive dissonance through Doublespeak and deliberately injected emotion-cum-confusion.

All of which so far has attempted to demoralise the general public, diminish the effects of genuine journalistic criticism (they do exist!) and thereby stem the tide or deflect altogether, interest in Cummings ‘Durham/Barnard Castle’ story – which has even more holes in it than Boris Johnson’s fake ‘brush’ with martyrdom.

Johnson and the rest of the #ToryAnalytica COBRA Cabinet, the ERG, TPA and elements of the 1922 Committee et al – will attempt to retain the services of Oberstgruppenfuhrer Cummings running the show in Downing Street, as he simultaneously attempts to coordinate with the other ‘half’ of the ‘Special Relationship’ coup d’etat #TrumpPutin regime.

Further potential delay strategies could include a ‘unifying’ Dead Cat distraction such as a manufactured medium-scale national (petrochemical, aircraft, tower-block fire) disaster…

…or a terrorist ‘attack’ or even a dead royal which will be used to compel those of us who are capable of critical thinking to shut the fuck up and forget everything that’s gone before.

“Nothing is of greater importance in time of war than in knowing how to make the best use of a fair opportunity when it is offered”. Machiavelli

So that by the time the enforced ceasefire by emotional blackmail has passed, the current issues like #CummingsGate become ‘inconsequential’, downplayed and invalidated resulting in the public being expected to ‘move on’.

Well, that’s how the gaslighting playbook has always run before but it won’t work this time. Too many people’s eyes are now firmly focused on Number 10 Downing Street – and globally at their respective Governments – who’s excuses of serial ‘incompetence’ are fast giving way to the reality of elite corruption – caught in the act in Berlin on 25th June 2017, before ‘It’ could be militarised and a truly #GlobalFascism mobilised, during a 2017 symbolically-timed repeat of the 1914 ‘July Crisis’‘#OpFukuglaschu‘.

NB – This piece is dedicated to Euan S. One of the many ordinary, ‘reluctant realists’ who have had the moral courage to process our political-ideological reality as it actually is. And whose belief and encouragement spurred me on, into putting this piece together in the face of the unrelenting tsunami of centre-left political and commentariat “intellectual cowardice” (Orwell).
