As Brexit and British politics ramps up, members of our burgeoning Underground Knowledge global discussion group on Goodreads postulate on whether the world is watching the emergence of the British Empire Mark II.

Brexit…Not going well, is it?

 

Here’s examples of what Undergrounders are saying:

What is the Commonwealth if not the British Empire 2.0? https://www.theguardian.com/commentis…

The Empire strikes back? Or delusions of grandeur of an old relic?

Global Britain brand ‘seen as Empire 2.0’, warns top Government official as he slams post-Brexit slogan https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politic…

What about Scotland 2.0? Delusions of grandeur that requires the architects get medicated?

Commonwealth as British Empire 2.0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MSw8f…

The Scots think they will get North Sea oil if they left, but my guess is it would be considered a UK asset, and in a divorce divided proportionately to population.

Ministers aim to build ‘empire 2.0’ with African Commonwealth https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/mi…

The UK has a wide and varied expertise in banking and finance, oil and gas, defence, aerospace, health, IT industry and so on, and equipped for the future. 

Brexiters focus on the Commonwealth factor https://www.ft.com/content/bb199160-1…
Nations of the former British empire touted as trade partners by Tories 

Commonwealth may yet be a saviour for the United Kingdom https://www.irishtimes.com/opinion/co…

Old colonies have never been priority, but now may be time to rebuild those bridges.

Nicholas Shaxson on Tax Havens, the Banking system & UK Uncut https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BqhcM…

City of London has much greater banking power than most realize, in my opinion…This may be an underestimated aspect of the soon-to-be EU-free Britain…

700 Years Banking Cabal by William Stuart https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vKMXD…

I have given up trying to pick what will happen from this bizarre exercise. Just about anything is possible, but I suspect a cleanout of politicians in the next election is probable. Whatever the ending, there will be strife, but I suspect it will be worse if they don’t exit, given both major parties promised to at the last election. 

Ed Spannaus introduces the September 1997 panel on Britains Invisible Empire. Copies of the Fall of the House of Windsor Report that he mentions are available at www.larouchepub.com Counter-Intelligence editor Jeff Steinberg opens by detailing the structure and nature of the modern British Empire starting with Queen Elizabeth, her perrogative powers, the Privy Council, and the corporate power she wields. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fOROJ…

 If they go against the outcome in favor of those who exercised their democratic right to vote to leave the EU then democracy is truly dead in the UK, and it would be better to ‘leave’ personally.

Could Brexit mean a new UK-China relationship? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c84og…

There is no doubt in my mind that the UK politicians have behaved very badly over this whole farce, and I suspect they will continue to do so as whatever happens happens.

“Why not? The country has the financial expertise to be their bankers. .”… Those (British) Venetian Baaahhhhhhhhstards!  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6p-lD…

The Queen is expected to do what Parliament decides. She must be in severe difficulty in working out what to do now.

If you leave the EU, you need a large market. 1.4 billion is not bad. But additionally, it gives leverage in future trade discussions with the EU. As I understand, Germany is the major supplier of cars to the UK. The threat of Chinese competition should sharpen Germany’s attitude in trade talks.

★★★★★ “GREED!! Third World countries are exploited for their resources, minerals and land.” –Lynelle Clark (Author).

Morcan Books & Films

Dedicated to the impoverished in forgotten places of the world, the new release book BANKRUPTING THE THIRD WORLD: How the Global Elite Drown Poor Nations in a Sea of Debt  questions whether the likes of the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, the United States Agency for International Development and other big international aid organizations help or hinder the world’s poorest people.

Bankrupting the Third World  also questions whether the aid packages provided are genuine or whether they are scams designed to subjugate Third World countries. And it exposes the culture of corruption within the aforementioned aid organizations and the arrogance with which they treat their Third World ‘clients.’

An excerpt from the book’s blurb follows:

The Morcans reveal there’s a nefarious hidden agenda at play whereby the ‘generosity’ extended by international aid organisations in assisting the development of the Third World and providing relief in the event of natural…

WHEN YOU CAN’T HEAR… DEATH COMES SILENTLY…

That’s the premise behind the epic horror-mystery Silent Fear (A novel inspired by true crimes) — by the writers of The Orphan Trilogy, Into the Americas and White Spirit.

Silent Fear (A novel inspired by true crimes) by [Morcan, Lance, Morcan, James]

In Silent Fear, Scotland Yard detective Valerie Crowther is assigned to investigate the murder of a student at a university for the Deaf in London, England. The murder investigation coincides with a deadly flu virus outbreak, resulting in the university being quarantined from the outside world. When more Deaf students are murdered, it becomes clear there is a serial killer operating within the sealed-off university. A chilling cat-and-mouse game evolves as the unknown killer targets Valerie and the virus claims more lives.

As the book’s subtitle suggests, Silent Fear  is a novel that was inspired by true crimes. Those crimes being the murders of Deaf students at the prestigious Gallaudet University…

The 5G network. And is it anything to worry about? (and will humanity still be around for 6G?!)  These are quandaries we’ve put to members of our Underground Knowledge global discussion group on Goodreads.

 

Image result for 5g

 

Put simply 5G (Fifth-generation wireless) is the latest iteration of cellular technology, engineered to greatly increase the speed and responsiveness of wireless networks. And, as TechRadar.com explains,”5G networks are the next generation of mobile internet connectivity, offering faster speeds and more reliable connections on smartphones and other devices than ever before… The networks will help power a huge rise in Internet of Things technology, providing the infrastructure needed to carry huge amounts of data, allowing for a smarter and more connected world.”

As for 6G, the tech nerds tell us it’s terahertz-based wireless network which is expected to be available for commercial use in about 10 years. 

It all sounds fairly harmless, doesn’t it? Well, not according to Undergrounders. Some of our Underground Knowledge group members are tech nerds, not to mention scientists and others of their ilk, and it turns out many of them have reservations about 5G and where the whole Fifth-generation wireless thingy is heading.

★★★★★ “This is book #7 in the Underground Knowledge Series and follows the same quality research and gathering of information as the other Underground books…After reading it, I’m left speechless and with only one thought: If truth really is stranger than fiction, then this book would be the poster child.” –Amazon Customer

Morcan Books & Films

In Underground Bases, book seven in our Underground Knowledge  series, we advise readers that most underground bases most are built inside or directly above natural, pre-existing cave networks; and in our blog of October 26 we listed examples of some of these networks. Now we turn our attention to the extensive underground cave system known as Craighead Caverns, in Sweetwater, Tennessee.

The mysterious Lost Sea inside Craighead Caverns…

In the following excerpt from Underground Bases, we take our readers inside Craighead Caverns and we visit New Mexico’s Lechuguilla Cave, which is another example of the scale of underground cave systems:

According to Wikipedia, Craighead Caverns are “best known for containing the United States’ largest and the world’s second largest non-subglacial underground lake, The Lost Sea. In addition to the lake, the caverns contain an abundance of crystal clusters called anthodites, stalactites and stalagmites, plus a waterfall.”

★★★★★ “First-rate contribution to an important topic.” –Holocaust survivor Peter Kubisek

Morcan Books & Films

Our latest non-fiction book Debunking Holocaust Denial Theories  is the result of the disturbing trend within some sectors of society to deny, diminish or otherwise undermine the historicity of the Holocaust – that cataclysmic event that saw the extermination of some six million Jews (as in the ethno-religious group of people) by the Nazis before and during World War Two.

Flashback to January 1945…The entrance to Auschwitz concentration camp.

Besides the obvious groups like white supremacists, neo-Nazis and elements of Islamic and Christian fundamentalist communities, there is perhaps one group in the 21st Century more responsible for perpetuating the myth that the Holocaust never happened or has been vastly exaggerated: conspiracy theorists.

We can speak with some authority regarding this as, besides being filmmakers and novelists, we have written a series of controversial non-fiction books that have led to us being loosely labeled conspiracy theorists. This despite the fact…
