Two Years Of Discovery

Today is the two years anniversary of The Sitonfence Speakeasy. A site where the only agendas are the truth and righting wrongs. Injustice, in all its many guises, is anathema to me. In jj:passim Be Still My Beating Heart I highlighted organ harvesting in China. Falun Gong is a Chinese spiritual practice that combines meditation and qigong exercises with a moral philosophy centered on the tenets of truthfulness. However the truth and freedom of thought are often proscribed in China. After several weeks of demonstrations, Chinese troops entered Tiananmen Square on June 4, 1989, and fired on civilians. Estimates of the death toll range from several hundred to thousands. It has been estimated that as many as 10,000 people were arrested during and after the protests. Many of those arrested have never been seen again, including Tank Man, whose identity remains unknown.


The ethnic cleansing of Falun Gong practitioners, whose organs are taken by force during their incarceration, is truly scandalous. However The Chinese State Apparatus gets away with it as Chinese investment is currently propping up the American economy. Sino-American relations are seen as key to containing the ‘rogue state’ of North Korea. Is North Korea really a rogue state or has it been demonised by the media? Does it not have the right to defend its borders? The prohibition of crude oil exports to North Korea is beginning to bite, as is the embargo on North Korea’s exports. The Pentagon/CIA are drawing up plans for regime change. In the current circumstances is it not unreasonable to expect a response from North Korea even if it’s little more than thermo-nuclear sabre rattling?

The Philippines war against drugs has resulted in the extra-judicial murder of 5,000 individuals, many of whom were innocent of any crime. Crystal meth is the common name for crystal methamphetamine, a strong and highly addictive drug that affects the central nervous system. It’s estimated that three million are addicted to ‘ice.’

Rodrigo Duterte, the 16th and current President of the Philippines, in a televised address to the nation, asserted that he would like to massacre all of the three million drug addicts.

I have first-hand experience of poverty in the Philippines. I have been to houses with no floor covering and newspapers on the walls as makeshift wallpaper. I became involved in a charity that provided shoes to children starting primary school. Some of them had lived their lives bare of foot. The better off had flip-flops. The poverty is crushingly oppressive and overwhelming. Is it any wonder many without hope turn to a cheap blue rock that makes them feel better?

Duterte should be tackling the drug lords not the addicts. Or is he on the take from the wealthiest of their milieu? That he has done nothing to alleviate the poverty of his people is an outrage.

I digress. Many of my readers don’t appreciate when I go off piste from the main targets for my invective: the systemic cheating of Rangers and the complicity of Scottish football governance. Few however could ignore my articles on the death of Madeleine McCann, whose body will probably never be found. Her odious parents have denied their daughter the basic right of a Christian burial. Operation Ore exposed Gerry McCann as someone prepared to pay for images and videos of children being sexually tortured, including babies. He and his paedophile pal Dr. David Payne discussed how well McCann had groomed Madeleine, who was two at the time, to engage in oral sex. How McCann and his equally odious wife are allowed to solicit millions of pounds to ‘find‘ Madeleine is incomprehensible.

I backed Ched Evans when it was unpopular to do so. Matt Leslie, a former sub-editor at The Daily Record and current blogger on Hearts, was quick to castigate my support of a convicted rapist. I was convinced that he was innocent. The jury system is fallible. He spent thirty months in jail for a crime that he did not commit. A crime that was not reported to the police. A crime that the police used to further their careers. Ched was cleared of all charges. My support was vindicated.

This is very much a football blog. It was the Fans’ Choice of New Football Blog 2016 (FBA Awards). One of the reasons that this is the go-to site for many readers is my exclusives. I will select four of these from a portfolio of at least ten times this quantum:

1. David Murray paid a $1,000,000 bribe in cash to Lawrence Marlborough to acquire the latter’s equity in Rangers.

2. Dave King, via his bag man Paul Murray, paid William Stevenson £25,000 for his hacked information to undermine the former incumbents of the Rangers Lite board and to drive down the share price to facilitate their acquisition by his concert party.

3. The minutes of the interim meeting of the SPL to discuss whether to appeal the inordinately lenient fine that was recommended by the LNS Commission.

4. An insider at Woolgar Hunter revealed that three of the roofs at Ibrox stadium had fallen in to such disrepair that they had to be lifted and replaced at a cost north of £10m.

I revealed the true extent of the activities of career criminal Dave King. DCI Robertson chose to believe that King/Traynor’s leaks on Twitter (Charlotte Fakeovers) were evidence of a conspiracy. As King wanted to oust the former regime, Robertson’s pursuit of them was a godsend. Millions from state coffers were squandered on a wild goose chase. A wild goose chase that I was the first to rail against. David Murray killed Rangers. Fighting over the carcass should have been a sideshow. The intervention of a corrupt cabal of football governors made it the main event

There have been three credible death threats from those who cannot handle the truth. I now have to live my life in exile as I have been warned that should I return to Scotland my elderly and infirm parents will be assassinated. They are sitting ducks for the paramilitaries who have infiltrated The Orange Order.

Please read the preceding paragraph again. It’s chilling. Fellow FBA award winner Phil Macgiollabhain describes your humble author as ‘heroically in exile.‘ He should focus on his creative writing which according to my sources is no more than 30% accurate. If you want a Sinn Fein perspective or a theatrical night of IRA rabble-rousing, Phil’s your man. However he should not meddle in areas where he does not have any awareness of what’s really going on in my life.

I salute those who have shared this journey with me. A special mention must go to The Mensch who has been with me since the beginning. TM’s is a man hewn from a Jewish tradition who responded to my pieces on Palestine with the measure and eloquence that have become his trademark. His contributions to this site are invaluable. Sadly he too has been targeted by The Klan who threatened to gas his family.

If I have made your morning commute more bearable then I have made a difference.  If you take your JJ with your morning coffee, I hope that I have provided some respite from your travails. If you’re unwaged or infirm, never forget that I have your back and that your voice will not be muted.

The Paypal donations of my readers makes it possible. My contributors will decide whether this site celebrates a third year. I can assure you that I won’t be sitting on a fence as I enter my third year. It was always thus.

  1. Your blog is read all around the world but especially in Scotland. Your accuracy is exceptional A metaphysical question is what happens when the irresistible force meets the immovable object. i.e. PL v the SFA. The answer will soon be known. I expect the SFA to be blown away.

  2. Congratulations. As you say – it was always thus – and as such, I hope, it will remain in the future. Lang may your lum reek (as they say where I grew up).

  3. Bravo JJ. And here’s to another of safely highlighting the truth and injustices wherever you feel it needs brought to wider attention. Having only been reading your blog for the last six months, I’ve a lot of catching up to do. It’s been thoroughly enjoyable.

  4. Many interesting points and we should never forget about the evil that men do around the world, and women too. If bloggers like yourself don’t highlight the plight of those suffering then they suffer in silence. One reason for Amnesty’s great work. Ibdidvthinknyou were a bit disparaging of Phil, ok it’s an opinion piece but we have so few bloggers raising issues we need to know about or care about that it’s a shame to see dissension.

  5. Congratulations on reaching this milestone. A magnificent achievement and the quality and diversity of the output remains outstanding. Although my primary reason for visiting the site is to keep informed on SFA and Sevco/Rangers corporate malfeasance I do value the other topic areas you choose to raise. I look forward to many more fine articles.

  6. A truly stunning piece of writing. This is an exceptional Speakeasy and a ‘must read’ for thousands across the globe.

    You made an impact on the LSE share site way before you started your blog. You called it right then and you continue to do so.

    Congratulations on this milestone and thank you so much for your kind comments. It has been an immense privilege to share this journey with you.

  7. I was made aware of you and your site while following Phil and I have since been following and supporting your blog for over a year now. Everyday I have enjoyed your articulated blog entries, as stated by someone earlier the accuracy of your research and the way you present your facts is why I will continue to support your award winning blog voted by the fans.

    Congratulations on your two year milestone.

    JJ: Thank you.

  8. Congatulations and a big thank you for all your outstanding work these past two years.

    It has been a pleasure to absorb your insights and journalism.

    I now believe you (all of us) are fighting not just the extreme elements but a sophisticated and well organised set of opponents who if they prevail will ensure the historically and still presently corrupt regimes remain in situ and past crimes will be swept away.
    Our sport cannot allow that to happen
    Hang on in there!

  9. Congratulations on reaching this remarkable milestone. Long may it continue.
    I was introduced to this site by a friend and was truly blown away by its very informative and true facts. So much so that I was compelled to donate to your excellent and unique site.
    I congratulate you on your bravery and to the service you provide. Bravo

  10. Vast numbers of football fans now know the truth about Sevco and the corruption in Scottish football thanks to your assiduous unthreading of the webs spun by those who sought to obfuscate and perplex while generously filling their blue boots. Good luck in year three.

  11. JJ read every word you write and more power to your elbow. I have a monthly subscription via paypal, would be good to know that you receive it, it or something else exits the account and I’ll happily double it or treble it to keep you keeping on the good fight.


    JJ: I will keep an eye out for the next one and revert to you. Thanks.

  12. Congratulations on your fantastic two years of top class journalism JJ, I hope there are many more years to come.

    Thanks again for such in depth articles. I can’t say I always agree with you but I find your articles to be very insightful and thought provoking, take care, the usual monthly donation sent, cheers.

    JJ: Thank you for your kind words and kind recurring donations.

  13. Your site is not as old as TRFC,but at least you are not Going For One.Another award should be coming your way.Everyone,including the SMSM,know you are the guy with the contacts and you have the nuclear codes.

  14. You have been consistently outstanding.
    Without this blog and several others we would be in the dark regarding the cheating and criminality that contaminates and corrupts scottish football.
    The football media in this country are worse than useless.

  15. Hi JJ, another great article and congratulations on the anniversary of the site. You should feel an immense sense of pride in what you have achieved in a short period of time and in very difficult circumstances for you demanding true bravery and strength of character. Congratulations, and may there be many more milestones reached including a clean out of the SFA and all their cronies. Regular contribution continues as usual. I hope it buys you some small luxuries.

    JJ: Thank you.

  16. Happy birthday to us 😀
    Congratulations and thank you for your commitment to the monster you have created.
    You have brought such a variety of topics that have never been thought about previously such as the McCanns or Chinas organ farming, thats what makes your site such a success.
    Your contributers are equally responsible for that success and this is why each of us probably access the site on average 3 times a day to find where the comments have taken the conversation.
    15 million hits in 2 years is some going mate. I know youve had alot of dark days but the esteem you are held in by your supporters should prove to you it is not all for nothing and hopefully you realise youve found your calling.
    ATB and usual monthly contribution to the fighting fund made.

    JJ: Thank you buddy for all your support.

  17. Congratulations JJ! Trusting Year 3 is as successful as Your bloggs! It’s certainly the “Go too” site in Your pursuit of “The Truth”
    I’m always going to continue to support You and trust that more and more of Your readers contribute to You and Your family’s enforced exile!
    Stay Safe, Pal and thoughts always with You! Take Care!

    Congratulations on two years worth of excellent writing JJ – been with you since the start and have got over my ‘fear’ of donating online a few months ago . To your continued good health.
    You’re the king of rock n roll. Completely

      1. In recent months I’ve noticed you posting PfP, Jane’s addiction, Live from Daryl’s House, Steely Dan and now of my favourite albums “Steve McQueen”….endlessly playable…”moving the river” is my particular favourite
        There’s quite an eclectic range there but it appears we have very similar tastes in music.

      2. Steve McQueen is peerless. I chose Bonny because I adore the lyrics. I could have thrown a dart at the remaining tracks and nailed a Patrick Joseph McAloon masterclass.

      3. Incidentally, did you know that Paddy originally trained as a Catholic priest before devoting himself to music? He recently turned 60. He still lives in his native Durham with his wife and three daughters.

      4. I did know that. I was a big fan and actually saw them live at barrowlands (Jordan the comeback tour) If memory serves he was from a town called Consett ?
        I occasionally drive past it on business trips.

  19. Usual donation made (3852T)
    The site goes from strength to strength, surely another award on its way this year.
    Keep up the great work JJ

  20. JJ, didn’t get my fix yesterday so, somewhat belatedly, warmest congratulations on your 2nd anniversary. As others have said above, it really is some achievement and you should be very proud of what the site has become – there is really nothing else like it out there that I can think of. So kudos to you and as you said yourself, I think special mention goes to The Mensch for his comments and contributions to date, together with the many other “regulars” who always further and enlighten the topic of the day.

    I look forward to congratulating you on your 3rd anniversary and beyond and needless to say, for as long as you wish to continue the site you will have my full support.

    Congrats again.

    Cheers, TS

  21. Also two years of living dangerously for someone whom genuine supporters of all clubs owe a debt of gratitude to for exposing the corruption at the heart of Scottish football.
    Over that time it has gone from being ‘all about the Rangers’ to a coruscating dissection of those who head up the Sport’s governing bodies and our major clubs, with a few honourable exceptions. At least we know what is happening and I for one am grateful.
