Eurovision Song Contest is a sircus with clowns we cannot trust

Music is a huge part of my life and will always be. Eurovision Song Contest (ESC) is not the hottest thing on this planet, but I`m watching it every year. The Grand Final of ESC 2019 took place in Tel Aviv last Saturday, and 26 countries competed for the trophy.

The winner of the 64th ESC this time was Duncan Laurence from Netherlands with the song «Arcade». This is the fifth time the Netherlands wins ESC, and last time they won the ESC was 44 years ago where Teach-In won with «Ding-A-Dong», in 1975.

The Netherlands hosted the contest in 1958, 1970, 1976, 1980 and will host the contest in 2020, thanks to Duncan Laurence who sounds a bit like Chris Martin (Coldplay). Not a bad song, but was a clear winner? Not at all, and you should take the winner at this sircus as a pinch of salt.

Last year, Israel won with the song «Toy» by Netta Barzilai. Was it a clear winner? Not at all. The best song was «Fuego» by Eleni Foureira from Cyprus, and that`s still a big hit. So, there is something wrong here.

Netta Barzilai got 317 points from the Televoters, and 212 point from National juries. In other words; the National juries from all the countries in Europe didn`t have Netta as their favorite, but the majority of the people in Europe had. Random people woted for Israel by sending an SMS. Huh… Is this something we can trust?

Let`s take a look at another winner. In 2006, Finland won with the song «Hard Rock Hallelujah» by Lordi. They got 292 points, and it was all by Televoting while Monaco and Albania used juries. They were breaking the previous record for the highest tally in Contest history.

Lordis song is the second Eurovision song with the word Helleluhay in its title. The first one is Israels Hallelujah, which got first place at the 1979 ESC. The difference is the text. Lordi`s text is about blood and sticky floors.

A girl with a face of an angel, and an urge to kill. She was sanctified by death, and dont you mess with the devils bride. Cant you feel the darkness falling? Cant you hear the heavens roaring? The deadite girls gone wild. Shes a demon in heat. And so goes the text.

Can someone tell me who the televoters is?

Netherlands won Eurovision 2019 despite Sweden won the jury votes. But there is more to come. Norway won the tele votes and this is very odd. Norway got 47 points from the National jury, but jumped to the 5th place with 291 points from the televoters.

Who is the televoters?

Many people in Europe hate the Eurovision because they believe it`s corrupt and borderline racist. The problem with the National jury is the geo-political games countries play when awarding each other marks. Greece and Cyprus give eatch other 12 points while Britain and Ireland treat each other well during the troubles. So can be said about Serbia, Poland, Croatia and Russia (post cold war).

On top of that, they say it is a «non-political» event, but it is. This time, Madonna did not have permission to make a political statement about the Israel-Palestine conflict during her performance at the Eurovision. Madonna`s dancers were seen wearing Israeli and Palestinian flags on their backs at the final in Tel Aviv Saturday.

The dancer with the Palestinian flag on the back was Mona Berntsen from Norway. It is well known what the majority of the people in Norway thing about Israel. According to author Hanne Nabintu Herland, Norway missed thousands of bombs after the bombing in Libya. Later on, it was revealed that they gave the bombs to Hamas who is a Palestinian Sunni-Islamist fundamentalist organization. Hamaz have only one goal: Genocide.

Norway have so far supported Palestinians with about $1 billion and Mads Fredrik Gilbert has been lauded as a «hero» in Norwegian media for his work in Gaza. Gilbert has a broad range of experience from international humanitarian work.

Since the 1970`s, he has been actively involved with solidarity work concerning Palestinians, and he has served as a doctor for several periods in the Palestinian territories. He has written a book about Gaza, but he has also been subject for controversy for his political activism.

In a statement made to Dagbladet in the wake of the September 11 attacks, Gilbert stated: «The attack on New York did not come as a surprise with the politics the West has followed the last decades. I am upset by the terrorist attack, but I am at least as upset over the suffering that the US has caused.

It is in this context that 5000 dead has to be seen. If the U.S government has a legitimate right to bomb and kill civilians in Iraq, the oppressed has a moral right to attack the U.S with the weapons they may creatae as well. Dead civilians are the same wether they are Americans, Palestinians or Iraqis.»

When asked if he supported a terrorist attack against the US he answered; «Terror is a poor weapon, but my answer is yes, within the context I have mentioned.»

Robert Mueller was the boss at the FBI at that time and he is the one that said Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. But it was a big lie. So don`t blame on Bush and his organization. Nor the U.S government.

I assume we will hear more about that and the Deep State very soon. That being said: Trump warned about a was in Iraq. He was against it and said it will destebalize the Middle Eeast and he was right.

Madonna ended her performance at the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 with these words: Wake UP!

Jon Ola Sand from Norway is the European Broadcasting Unions Executive Supervisor of the European Song Contest, and he havent comented on the political act yet.

Just 32% of Americans have “great deal” or “fair amount” of trust in the media

Media are attacking President Donald Trump, but it seems like people isnt listening anymore. A Gallup poll from September found that just 32% of Americans have «great deal» or «fair amount» of trust in the media, which is the lowest level in the polls history.

Media are in trouble!

What tools do the establishment have if people dont belive media anymore? And what tools do the establishment have if people dont have faith in politicians anymore?


(RT: 26 April 2011)

You can see how media are turning things up side down. So are the politicians who have always lied. It was much more easy to lie when there where fewer media outlets. The lies was shaped and tempered by the media.

The most embarrassing lie was during the terror attack on twin towers. Former President Bush said Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, but that was a BIG lie. There were no reason to attack Iraq and people went angry because of that.

The demonstration against the war in Iraq was huge in the United States, but not only that. It is the biggest we have seen in modern history in Europe. Here is what made people pissed: The establishment didn`t listen to the people.

On top of that, people went angry at terrorists for making them feel afraid. The terrorist came as a direct result of the attack in Iraq and the killing of their leader Saddam Hussein. But it didn`t stop here. Next war was underway.

Who wrote about the war in Libya? The Media was silent like never before. We didnt hear much about it, but they bombed Libya and killed Gaddafi. People went even more angry, but it didnt stop here.

Pictures and videos from the killing of ambassador Chris Stevens who was raped and sadomized before murder made people more angry. They went crazy when they heard it took so much time before the support came to the consulate. Fox News sources said CIA in Benghazi during consulate attack denied help. Maybe Mr Stevens could be alive today?

It doesn`t help to know that the United States created al-Qaeda. It is a shame to know that ISIS is also created by the United States.

The point is that the people was against it. So are President Donald Trump. He said Saddam and Gaddafi was a big mistake. Media want us to know that Putin and Russia is dangerous, but how dangerous are they?

In 2011, Putin said: Who gave NATO right to kill Gaddafi? Who gave coalition forces in Libya the right to eliminate Gaddafi? Thats the question Vladimir Putins been asking, during an official visit to Denmark.

The Russian Premier also said NATO`s effectively joined one of the warring sides in the conflict. And more responsible action should be taken instead, Putin said.

What kind of dangerous man is saying things like that?

Take a trip to Africa and ask people about Gaddafi. They saw up to him. Gaddafi was the king of Africa. A big star. Putin didnt join NATO in Libya. He said it isnt right. Its crime, he said. They also killed Gaddafis son. What have he done? People in the West are not proud of this. They are angry.

We can see a clear picture when we know that Edward Snowden is hiding in Russia. He exposed mass surveillance by the NSA (National Security Agency). They spy on ordinary people and this is lack of people`s freedom and liberty. People are not proud of this. They are angry.

President Donald Trump like Putin who is hiding Snowden, and Putin was celebrating Trump`s victory last week.

People are not proud, and therefore, Mr Trump want to Make America great again! Good luck.

Black Gold is up on Iraqi war

Brent traded at its highest level since September as militants in Iraq seized more territory and President Barrack Obama warned that the crises may spill over into other countries. Fighters from the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant took control of Iraq`s border crossing with Jordan and Syria.

Black gold

Iraq pumped 3,3 million barrels a day last month. Saudi Arabia is the largest producer in the 12-member Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries. U.S Secretary of State John Kerry arrived in Baghdad to try to get political leaders to set aside sectarian divisions and confront the growing threat.

John Kerry will spend the day meeting with Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, as well as ministers and party leaders. But why do the U.S and John Kerry spend so much time and money on this case? Kerry said at a press conference that they want a government in Baghdad «that is prepared to represent all of the people of Iraq, that is prepared to be inclusive and share power».

The U.S didn`t invade Iraq to stop and evil tyrant and spread democracy. There were no weapons of mass destructions, and all of the terrorists that had been in Afghanistan fled to Pakistan. Not Iraq. The U.S went to Iraq for oil.

Back then, the U.S oil production was falling, but now it is rising. From 1970 to 2008, oil production fell from 9,6 million barrels per day to just 5 million barrels per day. Michael Simmons cast doubt on the actual size of Saudi Arabia`s reserves in his book from 2005, so it was not only the U.S either. M. King Hubbard`s «Peak oil» theory and breakneck emerging market growth, explain even more what happened in Iraq.

Vice President Dick Cheney had previously been the CEO of Halliburton, and made about $40 billion from the Iraq war. All this makes it hard to belive that the U.S was not in Iraq for the oil. But, did the U.S get all the oil? Nope.

Iraq is the second largest producer in OPEC and the country`s oil production hit 3,25 million barrels per day last year. A level not seen since before 1990, but the U.S oil imports from Iraq are actually down.

The U.S imported 725,000 barrels per day from Iraq in 1999, but now it is only 340,000 barrels a day. So, if Iraq is producing more oil than it has in decades, where is all the oil going? The oil is going to China.

China`s crude imports from Iraq increased by 31% year-over-year to about 600,000 barrels per day in the first four months of 2014, and that`s twice as much as the U.S import from Iraq. Up from almost nothing a decade ago.

Iraq`s oil production is expected to reach 8 million barrels by 2035, and that`s not all: they forecast that 80% of Iraqi production would go to China. Some investors say that Baghdad to Beijing is the new Silk Road of the global oil trade.

China National Petroleum Corp (CNPC) has invested $4 billion in the Iraqi oil industry. They produced 299 million barrels from the country last year. Almost one-third of its overseas output. PetroChina and Sinopec have invested billions of dollars in Iraq as well, acquiring stakes in some of the country`s largest oil fields. So, why do the U.S and John Kerry spend so much time and money to try to stabilize Iraq?
The U.S came uninvited and the American people don`t want to be there, nor do the Iraqi people want the American people to be there. The U.S has sacrificed much so far; 4,500 dead American soldiers and about 120,000 dead Iraqi civilians. About $800 billion in upfront costs, with additional $1 trillion in military pensions, disability payments and debt service. Is it worth it?

Saddam could have stopped the mess in Iraq, but he is dead. The U.S killed him. Now, the Sunnis, the Shiite, and the Kurds can do it all alone. There is nothing America can do to bring two warring Islamic factions together or redeem its credibility. If someone should spend time and money on this mess, it should be China.
