Socialist contortionist, Owen Jones, praised Venezuela in 2014...and is now shown to be a compete fool....

The Socialist nincompoop, gay rights activist, and bizarre political contortionist, Owen Jones, wrote the below collossal piece of entirely biased and blind twaddle back in 2014.

And now that the full extent of the disaster that is Venezuela's economy, is becoming clear, thanks to the lunatic Socialist policies of Hugo Chavez and Nicolas Maduro, the fatuous Jones is looking even more stupid than ever.

Venezuela is now on course for a whopping 1,000,000 % inflation very soon this year.

Utter, total, complete and general economic collapse, caused entirely by Socialism.

The article:

Owen Jones in 2014 praising Chavez and Maduro

The embarrassment:




The truth (and even CNN has to admit it!):



Welcome to Socialism, Owen...you nincompoop!

British Socialist hypocrites praise fellow Marxist hypocrite Hugo Chavez and Venezuela...errr, and then backtrack as fast as they can!

Watch British Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and other prominent British Socialists, like Diane Abbott and Owen Jones, praising Hugo Chavez and Nicolas Maduro...





…before the total collapse of the Venezuelan economy as a result of Socialism!

And note the news media report that Chavez was so enriched by his criminal revolution, supposedly for the poor, that Chavez's daughter is now the richest woman in Venezuela and worth $US4.2 billion!

It pays to be a Socialist if you are the leader!

What total, complete and utter hypocrisy!

So how do these hypocrites react to the complete collapse of the Venezuelan economy under Socialism?

Do they still praise Venezuela to the skies, as we saw? Oh, no, of course not....not any more...!




And the Labour Party Front Bench Treasury spokesman, Marxist John McDonnell, having praised Chavez to the skies now thinks that Venezuela maybe isn't so great after all...




Oh, right! So now Venezuelan Socialism wasn't real Socialism...it wasn't a Socialist country, after all.

Funny how Socialism isn't Socialism when it doesn't work!

Labour's John McDonnell in secret admits he's a Marxist at a private meeting...




...but in the public media he pretends that he is NOT a Marxist...in answer to the question "are you a Marxist?", he says "no"...





...John McDonnell, like most Socialists, is a LIAR!

Daniel Hannan MEP tells the truth and describes the reality regarding Socialism...




SOCIALISM...THE LAST REFUGE OF THE ROTTEN-TO-THE-CORE POLITICAL SCOUNDREL...!

VENEZUELA, Socialism in action...poverty, sickness, death, crime, corruption, tyranny and horror is the result!

Listen up, Socialist hypocrites and see what your favourite political lie has done for the once rich country of Venezuela.

 And did you hear that they introduced Socialism into the Sahara desert?

Within 3 months there was a shortage of sand!

Venezuela is far, far worse.

20 years of Socialism has left Venezuela, once the richest country in Latin America, in a total, appalling crisis - a hell hole and an humanitarian disaster area. 

Most Venezuelans go to bed hungry. Food and basic medicines are unavailable to most people. 15% of Venezuelans eat garbage to survive. Government workers can only work 2 days a week because there aren’t enough power resources to keep the government offices open.

Riots and protests 

Riots, protests and demonstrations are an everyday occurrence because the dictator of Venezuela, criminally corrupt President Nicholas Maduro, is breaching the Constitution, refusing elections, international aid and, above all, to stand down.

 This criminal is the chosen successor of the later neo-Marxist, Red Communist dictator and thug, and former Army Major, Hugo Chavez.

Chavez first started to destroy his own country by the usual Marxist policies of expropriation, nationalisation, price controls, massive corruption and over-spending, pocket-lining and favour-paying to his cronies in a criminal regime that useful Leftist idiots in the world’s media pretend was guided by an “enlightened” political philosophy called “Chavismo” after the dictator, himself.

Nationalisations 

Most industry was nationalised (i.e. simply stolen by the government and then mismanaged and destroyed) so that there is now no industry in Venezuela and the country has to import everything. 

Chavez was able to get away with his criminal, neo-Marxist policy of national robbery because Venezuela is the most oil-rich country in the world and he used the oil revenues to pay for his corrupt, criminal regime.

But then.....oil prices fell and Venezuela was left hopelessly exposed by the criminal policies of political psychopath, Chavez.

Nicholas Maduro 

Now Maduro is continuing the same criminal policies but with the difference that everyone can now see that there is no money to pay for it.

Maduro doesn’t care.

He is another classic neo-Marxist psychopath who blames everything on the USA, the usual bugbear of the Marxist Left when they find that their utterly stupid Marxist policies have failed.

Chavez’s mass redistribution of wealth, leading to wholesale corruption, and chaotic financial mismanagement, waste and improvidence, was, and is, the basis for the country’s economic collapse. 

Needless to say both Chavez and Maduro will tolerate no dissent or opposition, typical of the tyranny common to all dictators.

Both demonstrate the usual brutal authoritarian policies of suppressing press freedom and both regularly locked up his opponents.

Here is a video from Al Jazeera that gives a flavour of the hell that is now Venezuela:




And here is an undercover story by an Australian journalist who shows how bad things really are:





And a discussion of what it's like there:





...and the collapse explained here:




....and tens of thousands are leaving the country...





Both dictators funded gangs known as colectivos, who intimidate the poor into supporting the regime, whilst vomiting pro-government propaganda everywhere.

How many people have died in Venezuela because they were unable to get simple medicines? More and more and more every day. It is a disgraceful situation - utterly disgraceful.

There can be no toleration of criminals like Chavez and Maduro. They seize and hang onto power illegally and unconstitutionally.

BUT….as is so common amongst the even more odious, and disgustingly selfish, Left Wing elites in the rich countries of the Western world, Chavez and Maduro are actually being PRAISED by them.

The gutless hypocrisy of the Left Wing elites has to be seen to be believed. 

The worst, hottest and nastiest place in Hell is surely reserved for such people.

Here is the Roll of Shame of the Left Wing creeps, liars, cheats and selfish, self-serving ratbags who actually PRAISED the odious, criminal gangsters in Venezuela.


ROLL OF SHAME AND DISHONOUR

Noam Chomsky




Disgusting hypocrite of the Left, retired MIT professor Noam Chomsky praised Chavez’s  “historic liberation of Latin America” which was “destructive to the rich oligarchy.”

Yeah, right, Noam. How’s that “historic liberation” coming along, hmmm?

Sean Penn




Self-worshiping singer and unimpressive actor, Sean Penn, was a particular fan of Chavez, visiting him many times calling the dictator a “fascinating guy” who did “incredible things for the 80% of the people that are very poor there” adding, after Chavez’s death,

After Chávez’s death in 2013, Penn said that “poor people around the world lost a champion” and that “Venezuela and its revolution will endure under the proven leadership of vice president Nicolas Maduro”.

Oh, sure, Sean – nice people…who left the poor to starve and die.

Sean…do us all a favour. Put your head back in the sand bucket!

Oliver Stone




Loony Left Wing film director Oliver Stone so grovelled at the feet of the Venezuelan dictator that he even made a film about him. It was no more truthful than any of Stone’s other dishonest films.

When Chavez dies, the idiotic Stone burbled “I mourn a great hero to the majority of his people and those who struggle throughout the world for a place,” adding “hated by the entrenched classes, Hugo Chavez will live forever in history.”

Oh, right, Ollie…he will live in history as a dishonest scoundrel, so you can go back to your pampered, super-rich, self-indulgent place among the “entrenched classes”!

Jesse Jackson




Lefty preacher, Jesse Jackson, visited Caracas in 2005 and praised Chavez for his “focus on foreign debt, debt relief, and free and fair trade to overcome years of structural disorder, unnecessary military spending, [and] land reform” and, after Chavez died, claimed that “Hugo fed the hungry. He lifted the poor. He raised their hopes. He helped them realize their dreams. And, so, today we do mourn, because we’ve lost a lot. But we have a lot left – a stable government, an orderly transition”.

Oh, really, Jesse? How’s that “stable government, orderly transition” coming along, then, hmmm? Not so good, huh……?

Michael Moore




That utterly ridiculous hypocrite, Michael Moore, praised Chavez for “eliminating 75 percent of extreme poverty” while “[providing] free health and education for all”.

Hey, there, Mike! How’s that “eliminating…poverty” and “free health and education for all” coming along? Say what, Mike? Speak up, boy! We can’t hear you….!

Jeremy Corbyn




British Labour Party leader and bumbling, ludicrous, neo-Marxist sack of old moth-eaten socks, Jeremy Corbyn, was (of course!) an enthusiastic supporter of Chavez and his corrupt, tin-pot, neo-Marxist, robber regime.

When Chavez died, the fatuous Corbyn claimed that Chavez ensured that “that the poor matter and wealth can be shared,” adding he had made “massive contributions to Venezuela and the world.”

Ok, Jezza! How’s that “massive contribution to Venezuela” coming along, now, hmmmm? Not so brilliant, eh?

Diego Maradona




Argentinian soccer moron, Diego Maradona, was yet another one of Chavez’s super-rich friends who claimed to hate “everything that comes from the United States”.

Maradona is such a friend of the poor that he owes Italy over $US30 million in unpaid taxes, lives a super-luxury lifestyle and doesn’t give a flying tuppenny two-bag for the poor.

Needless to say that this filthy rich sleaze ball, who famously won a world cup by cheatingly handballing a goal, was also a supporter of Cuban criminal gangster and dictator, Fidel Castro.

Naomi Campbell




Super-rich, super-selfish super-model, Naomi Campbell, who is so odiously selfish that almost no-one likes to work with her, visited Venezuela and felt moved to praise the dictator Chavez, saying “I’m amazed to see the love and encouragement for the social programs that you have here for women and children in Venezuela”.

Oh, right, Naomi. I bet you were “amazed”!

She also called Chavez a “rebel angel,” who was “fearless, but not threatening or unreasonable”.

Even the half-witted Campbell realised this was too much and has since taken these comments down.

Well, Naomi. There’s a surprise.

Danny Glover




Pea-brained actor, Danny Glover, became one of Chavez’s most prominent supporters. Maybe the fact that the Venezuelan government gave Glover $US18 million to direct a film about the Haitian revolution had something to do with that?

Is there anything these long-snouted actors would not do for money?

And the film was never even released!

Glover’s transparently insincere rhetoric about the Venezuelan dictators is among some of the most vapid, grovelling and sickening.

Try this for size: “He was not only my friend, he was my brother… It’s difficult for a leader like him to exist in these times. His vision for humanity and the world can only be compared to that of leaders like Nelson Mandela. He was a great man and I cried when he died”.

The bone-headed Glover even went on to praise the totally failed President, Maduro, urging him “to continue [Chavez’s] vision of a participatory democracy, one involving all citizens” and called his criminal, neo-Marxist government “the stewards of this democracy.”

Doh! Words fail one…

Who won the Battle of Britain? The answer is...THE POLES!

It is a simple fact that the Polish Air Squadrons were only allowed to join the Battle of Britain half way through it but...

...they shot down twice as many German aircraft as did all the other non-Polish put together including those who had been in the Battle from the beginning.

...BUT BRITAIN DID NOT SAY THANK YOU!

THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT, TO PLEASE STALIN, REFUSED TO ALLOW THE POLES TO TAKE PART IN THE VICTORY PARADES!

Instead British people were likely to call these heroic Poles "bloody foreigners"!

This must be one of the most disgraceful and shameful episodes of ingratitude in recent British history.

Utterly disgraceful.

But now the whole story can be told and this video does so very well....



God save Poland!

Polonia semper fidelis!


Pope Francis defends the indefensible...



Pope Francis has made a change to the Catechism of the Catholic Church as follows:

"The death penalty

2267. Recourse to the death penalty on the part of legitimate authority, following a fair trial, was long considered an appropriate response to the gravity of certain crimes and an acceptable, albeit extreme, means of safeguarding the common good.

Today, however, there is an increasing awareness that the dignity of the person is not lost even after the commission of very serious crimes. In addition, a new understanding has emerged of the significance of penal sanctions imposed by the state. Lastly, more effective systems of detention have been developed, which ensure the due protection of citizens but, at the same time, do not definitively deprive the guilty of the possibility of redemption.

Consequently, the Church teaches, in the light of the Gospel, that “the death penalty is inadmissible because it is an attack on the inviolability and dignity of the person”,[1] and she works with determination for its abolition worldwide."

[Pope Francis, Address to Participants in the Meeting organized by the Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelization, 11 October 2017: L’Osservatore Romano, 13 October 2017, 5]


There has been a lot of public angst among Catholics about this.

We all need to relax. 

This new statement of the Pope is not infallibly taught, nor anything like it and, indeed, it cannot be. 

It is not even "teaching" in the proper sense. It is no more than a prudential statement for our times and any Catholic is free to disagree with it. 

To those who think it is some kind of "official" change of doctrine, I must say that I wish Catholics would educate themselves on the status and level of particular statements and teachings in the Church. The level of gross ignorance on the subject is truly abysmal.

This statement is clearly time-bound on its face with references to "long considered" and "today". That makes it, at best, a prudential, not doctrinal statement, even without more.

This snot only not and infallible statement (let alone ex cathedra) but it cannot even be such.

The Ordinary Infallible Magisterium is exercised diachronically over time and not by a "one off" addition to the Catechism and, in any event, once a teaching is taught infallibly, as the historic teaching on capital punishment is, it can never be changed, even by the Magisterium. 

That is what the word "infallible" means i.e. it is always right and can never be wrong. 

To believe that infallibly taught teaching can be changed is to deny the doctrine of infallibility, to embrace heresy and so to cease to be a Catholic.

Moreover, the Pope's argumentation is faulty and irrational.

Capital punishment does not, and never has, in principle, diminished the dignity of man, provided it is done justly. Indeed, it arguably enhances the dignity of man by recognising the seriousness of his moral choices which arise from the principle source of his dignity, namely his free will. 

It also is profoundly pro-life since it punishes with the loss of life, the most serious punishment, those who, with the ultimate indignity, have no regard for innocent human life.

On the other hand, but for entirely different reasons, I endorse the prudential disapproval of capital punishment. I am not being perverse. I just don't trust modern politicians not to abuse the power as e.g. the odious Bill Clinton did when he refused to commute a death sentence so as to deflect the media from his bombing of innocent Bosnian civilians.

1st July - the Feast of the Precious Blood....and the first day of the Battle of the Somme.

The Feast of the Precious Blood of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ...

The Precious Blood of Christ was poured out for our salvation in expiation of our sins

Devotion to the Precious Blood of Jesus Christ, our Saviour and Lord God, existed from the time of the Passion of our Lord.





In Catholic belief, the Blood of Christ is precious because it is Christ’s own great ransom paid for the redemption of mankind. As there was to be no remission of sin without the shedding of the blood of the Lamb of God, Christ the “Incarnate Word” not only offered his life for the salvation of the world, but he offered to give up his life by a bloody death, and to die upon the Cross for the salvation of mankind.

The modern Feast of the Precious Blood, celebrated in Spain in the 16th century, was later introduced to Italy by Saint Gaspar del Bufalo in the 19th century.




In 1848-9, the red revolutionaries staged an uprising and takeover in Papal Rome, led by the very people whom the Pope had released from prison upon his elevation to the Pontificate.

Blessed Pope Pius IX had granted a parliamentary constitution to the Papal States, released political prisoners and ordered the gates of the Roman Jewish ghetto to be demolished (which the orthodox Jews later complained about because orthodox Jews prefer to enclose themselves in a ghetto every Friday shabbat).


Blessed Pope Pius IX

For these liberal gestures, the revolutionaries did not thank the Pope…they seized the opportunity to attack him all the more, shameless hypocrites that they were.

On 15 November 1848, on his way to open the new Parliament of the Pontifical States (the Cancelleria now occupied by the Roman Rota and the Roman Signatura), Count Pellegrino Rossi, the Pope’s new liberal-minded Prime Minister, after opening the gates with his key was surrounded by a revolutionary mob and stabbed to death.


Count Pellegrino Rossi,
papal Prime Minister murdered by red revolutionaries in cold blood...

The stabber was Angelo Brunetti, known as “Ciceruacchio” a brutal revolutionary thug and fanatical Italian nationalist who supported other nationalist fanatics like Giuseppe Garibaldi, repudiating Catholicism for the proto-Fascism of Giuseppe Mazzini.


Angelo Brunetti
who brutally murdered Count Rossi in cold blood on the steps of the Cancelleria

Brunetti who, like most Italian nationalists, hated Catholic Austria that ruled northern Italy, was captured by Austrian police trying to commit more terrorist acts and was justly tried, convicted and shot.

During the Roman revolution, the Pope’s personal prelate was shot by revolutionaries whilst walking in the gallery of the papal Palazzo. The Palazzo was surrounded by fanatical revolutionaries and the Pope barely escaped with his life out of the back door disguised as a simple priest standing on the back of a carriage.

Blessed Pope Pius IX went into exile at Gaeta in the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies.

A Roman Republic was declared in February 1849. 

The Pope responded from his exile by excommunicating all active participants. 


The Republic was openly hostile to the Catholic Church, celebrating Good Friday with huge fireworks on Saint Peter's Plaza and desecrating Saint Peter's Basilica on Easter Sunday with a secular Republican victory celebration.

The public finances were spent liberally leading to an early financial disaster; palaces, convents and churches were plundered for valuables and art work. In addition to the official pillaging, private gangs roamed through the city and the countryside, murdering, raping and stealing and spreading fear among the citizens of the Papal States.

They were, as usual, a disgusting gang of murderous thugs of the sort that prevailed in France during the French revolution and fit only for the lower reaches of Hellfire.

As Blessed Pope Pius IX went into exile he had as his companion Father Giovanni Merlini, third superior general of the Fathers of the Most Precious Blood.


Blessed Pope Pius IX,
disguised as a simple priest, escapes the murderous Italian nationalist revolutionaries by fleeing from the back of the papal palace to a coach which takes him into exile to Gaeta in the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies... 

After they had arrived at Gaeta, Don Giovanni Merlini suggested that His Holiness make a vow to extend the feast of the Precious Blood to the entire Church, if he would again recover possession of the Papal States.

On 30 June 1849, the day the French army conquered Rome and sent the fanatics of the red revolution packing, the Pope sent his domestic prelate, Joseph Stella, to Father Merlini with the message: 

“The Pope does not deem it expedient to bind himself by a vow; instead his Holiness is pleased to extend the feast [of the Precious Blood] immediately to all Christendom”.

On 10 August of the same year, he officially included the feast of the Most Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ in the General Roman Calendar for celebration on the first Sunday in July, the first Sunday after 30 June, the anniversary of the liberation of the city of Rome from the insurgents.

Later, Pope St Pius X moved the feast to 1 July.


Pope St Pius X who tried to prevent the Great War from breaking out...

In Blessed Pope John XXIII's 1960 revision of the General Roman Calendar, the feast was classified as of the first class.

Shamefully and disgracefully, the feast was removed from the General Roman Calendar in 1969, by order of Pope Paul VI.


The Battle of the Somme – the precious blood of innocent young men is poured out on the battlefield for the sins of faithless old men...

The very same fanatical revolutionaries and secularists who had sought to topple the Pope, later succeeded in 1870 and Blessed Pope Pius IX became a prisoner of the Vatican (to which palace he had moved from the Quirinal, as being safer).

A conspiracy of secularists all over Europe was now bent upon destroying Christian monarchy altogether and replacing it with secular republicanism, modelled upon revolutionary France.

This conspiracy, often led by Freemasons and other sectaries, led directly to World War I in which the revolutionaries hoped to see Christian monarchy swept away forever.

Only Pope Benedict XV and the young Austrian Emperor, Blessed Charles I, (who came to the Austrian throne in November 1916) were striving for peace and an end to the brutal war.


Blessed Emperor Charles of I of Austria tried to send the Great War...

They did not succeed.

On 1 July 1916, the British army launched its planned offensive near the Somme river to coincide with a similar French offensive, further south.




It was believed that a massive artillery bombardment would obliterate the German opposition and the infantry, followed later by cavalry, would be able simply to walk over no-man’s-land, into the German trenches leading to the war’s end.

The generals could not have been more wrong.

The Germans had built deep dugouts and were able to survive the terrible shelling. They quickly came out of their dugouts with their machine guns intact and re-mounted them ready to defend their positions.

The advancing British and Empire troops were massacred in huge numbers, covering the battlefield in the precious blood of young men.

The first day on the Somme was, in terms of casualties, the worst day in the history of the British army, which suffered 57,470 casualties, of which nearly 20,000 died.




These casualties occurred mainly on the front between the Albert–Bapaume road and Gommecourt, where the attack was defeated and few British troops reached the German front line. 

The road to Bapaume was defended largely by Australian troops, many of them Catholics, and they were slaughtered horribly, hallowing the earth of France with the precious blood of young men in the first bloom of adult life. 

A memorial to the fallen Australians stands today, at Villers-Brettoneaux, high on a hill overlooking the Somme river, a name now so redolent with the loss of precious young blood.

One writer has opined that, even a century later:

“‘the Somme' remains the most harrowing place-name” 


in the history of the British Empire and Commonwealth.



Millions of women learned by cold telegram of the death of their husbands, sweethearts, brothers and sons killed in that most brutal war that deprived so many women of future husbands and families and the nation of its best young men...

The battle was largely in vain since any ground gained was later re-taken by the Germans.

The first day of Battle of the Somme is a paradigm for the whole war: a war engineered by sour, old men, secularists by and large, seeking the end of Christian monarchy and not caring how many young men they killed in the process.

These young men thought they were fighting for justice and died fighting heroically and innocently, for the most part, spilling their precious blood as the price for a world saturated by sin, unbelief, cynicism and evil.




All over the battlefields of France in that war were left the shattered remains of bodies amidst smashed churches and broken crucifixes symbolising a kind of renewed crucifixion of Christ, a holy sacrifice shared by millions of innocent young men who were slaughtered on the battlefields and who gave up the precious blood of their young lives in a kind of expiation for the faithless sins of the generation of old men and politicians who were content to send them out to die in a war that should never have been.


Battlefield graveyard and cemetery of the First World War in France...

It was a war that wrecked the remnants of Christendom and opened the way for the horrors of Communism and Nazism.

Let us then pray for the millions who died in that most awful of wars and remember the pleas of our Lady who came to the world, in the midst of that terrible war, at Fatima, to warn us of the consequences of sin and faithlessness.

And let us pray for the millions of innocent young men who died in that terrible war.

Eternal rest grant unto them O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them....

Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine, et lux perpetua luceat eis....







At a Calvary near the Ancre
by Wilfred Owen
One ever hangs where shelled roads part.
In this war He too lost a limb,
But His disciples hide apart;
And now the Soldiers bear with Him.

Near Golgotha strolls many a priest,
And in their faces there is pride
That they were flesh-marked by the Beast
By whom the gentle Christ's denied

The scribes on all the people shove
And bawl allegiance to the state,
But they who love the greater love
Lay down their life; they do not hate.



Here dead we lie
by A E Housman 
Here dead we lie
Because we did not choose
To live and shame the land
From which we sprung.

Life, to be sure, 
Is nothing much to lose,
But young men think it is,
And we were young.
