The Great Maddie War (GMW)

As you might imagine, in our house breakfast stopped being that meal taken leisurely at the start of the day, with me outlining my day and Fred entertained with the morning paper, to being tutoring sessions whereby Fred sat eagerly waiting for his new found teacher to give him another “lecture.”

I even feared to find one day an impeccably polished red apple waiting for me on the table. A fruit that will be recurrent in this post as you’ll see.

Fred was anxious after our Priorities talk,

“So are you going to tell me about that war that you spoke about yesterday?”

“Of course I am, my dear... but first you must understand the reasons for it to have even started.

Did you know that only in the 1990s did I really understand the reasons behind World War II?”

“Nice. You’ve just started and I’m already confusedwhat, why, when?”

“All my life I couldn’t understand why a single event that took place in the Balkans, the assassination of an Austrian Archduke in Sarajevo, ignited World War I, a conflict that took place more than 500 Km away from it, in Northern France where its main battlegrounds were.

The outcome of this war and the stupidly humiliating terms set by the victors were what significantly helped the rise to power of that unspeakable monster who led the world into its second global conflict.

But with the Yugoslav Wars during the 1990s all became clear, at least for me.”

“Good for you… but can we go back to the subject?”

We never left it, you see, never in a million years had it occurred to Gavrilo Princip that with him pressing that trigger he was sealing the fate of millions of lives in two World Wars

What I’m trying to say is that sometimes events are so complexly interlinked and get so strangely intertwined that those who are responsible for starting it very seldom are able to control it, or its effects, and most often only realize the seriousness of their actions when well beyond the point of no-return.

And that’s what happened with the Great Maddie War or GMW. It began with  Maddie's Princip Shot, on May 3rd, 2007.

"With Maddie's death, right?"

"Oh no, it wasn't the fact that the poor little girl died in the circumstances that she did, namely in a foreign Country and during the time the Ocean Club was hosting a large swinging party that led to all this mess. We now know all this could have been perfectly avoided."

"Explain please!"

"The Dark Cloud #12 - Guests' Nepotistic Network would have been enough for the world to have never heard of Maddie McCann and the Brits in particular would have read her name on one day and forgotten about it on the next, as many children, unfortunately, do die in accidents in their own houses

In Maddie's case it would have "happened" the day the family had arrived from such an enjoyable holiday in Portugal... so tragic, but accidents happen when they happen and not when or how one wants them to happen... unless they "happen" when one wants them to happen which would be the case of Maddie's death.

But this would be if they just had the minimum common sense, which they didn't, did they?"

"Slow down... slow down... you mean they could have gotten away with it? But how? And if what you say is true, why didn't they?"

"All they had to do was just to have kept quiet, have their "friends" come over and fly Maddie's body back to the UK and make it appear that she died in an accident at home. No one would have known better and we wouldn't be having this conversation now.

Sometimes people underestimate the consequences of the decisions they make. This can be because they can't, won't or aren't able to foresee what's up ahead.  Just like Princip when he shot the Archduke. He was but one of six puppets intoxicated with propaganda, so knew no better but his act meant countless tragedies in the decades that followed it.

In Maddie's case, the Princip shot was fired, we believe, by none of the Tapas 9, but by someone else, and the "bullet" didn't hit any of the Tapas 9, but someone else."

"So who fired the shot?"

"The Princip shot, dear, the Princip shot! There were no firearms involved and let's have that be very, very clear. 

The Maddie's Princip shot was fired by whoever came up with the abduction idea

But just like in Sarajevo, the shot only produced its devastating effects when the bullet found it's target, in the case when it hit the Archduke, because if it hadn't, WWI wouldn't have started the way it did, or even if it would have started at all...

In Maddie's Princip shot the "target" was whoever,  having the authority to decide, accepted the proposal for the abduction scenario as the solution to the problem.

That exact moment was Maddie's Princip's shot.

A "shot" fired by a fool who had certainly seen one movie too many and a "target" that underestimated the consequences of the decision."    

“Go on.”

“That decision, as we saw, led to Priority ONE which was to destroy the body and then to the launching and recalling of “The McCann Hunting Party 07”

Remember why it was recalled?

“Because they realized they couldn’t take down the McCanns alone without Maddie’s body…”

“That’s right. But if you could take a picture of the moment it was recalled, how would you describe it?”

“I won’t even try because I’m sure you’re going to do just that.”

“Yes I am. Imagine that the McCanns are an apple hanging on an apple tree.”


“The moment the BHs recalled the game they had made one enormous effort to make that particular apple seem to be the ripest apple of all and so, so ready for the plucking.

They polished it so neatly. it became so bright that it stood out so much that it completely obscured the rest the apples as well as the tree itself.

Everyone’s attention was on that particular apple and on that apple alone.

But when the moment came to pluck it and when they were up on the ladder with their hand around it, they realized that if they did plucked it then other apples would also fall with it.

As it was impossible to predict which apples would fall and which would stay up, or even if the whole lot would all just fall with that apple, so much to their displeasure, they decided to leave it on the tree.

Agree with the analogy I just made for that particular moment?”

“Yes, that about describes what you’ve said up to now”

“And what is the problem that the BHs are now faced with?”

“Huh? Was I supposed to detect a problem? If so, not seeing it…”

“The deliciousness of that apple!”


“They made the apple appear to be so, so delicious, that they had literally billions of people worldwide wanting it!

Everyone just craved one big juicy chunk out of that plump, unbelievably appetizing and uncontrollably tempting red fruit that was just asking to be plucked…”

“Oooh!… yes… Science does say that for every action there’s an equal and opposite reaction. They did have that problem then didn’t they?”

“Yes, they did! And how do you stop a mob of billions?”

“Good question…”

“You can’t and because you can’t, you don’t. You basically disrespect and ignore the lot.”


“Those billions of people became interested in the Maddie case because the BHs pressed the Press to make them interested in her, right?"


"Well, those same billions have other issues in their lives and became wary with the lack of justice taking into account the parents obvious non-natural and suspicious behaviour.

Very quickly those same billions started to note the smell of fish odour coming from the McCanns and before even two months had passed the majority of those billions had already written off the case as another one authorities opted to “not solve”.

But when the dogs sniffed out what was obviously enough evidence to incriminate the parents their hopes went up again thinking that maybe this time Justice would prevail over Establishment. This was when the apple was being polished, repolished and then polished again.”


“So when the “about-turn” happened, the BHs just said the apple wasn’t edible anymore regardless of how delicious it looked, that simple.”

“Well, that is as simple as it gets… just don’t see how it works.”

“You see, the vast majority of those billions that had already written off the case, with that dry statement wrote off, again, the case as another one that demonstrated that the Establishment had Justice well under its wings of control even in a country like the UK, so shrugged their shoulders and went back to their lives.

And when I say “majority” I do mean 99.99%.”

99.99%?!? That’s everyone!”

“No dear, it isn’t. 0.01% of a billion is still 100,000 people. And I did say billions and not a single billion, which means that the BHs still had a mob of hundreds of thousands to control.

These hundreds of thousands were mainly concentrated in the two Countries involved, Portugal and UK, with a significant preponderance in the latter.

They demanded answers and their thirst for “blood” wouldn’t be quenched with a mere “not edible” excuse.

They wanted an explanation as to why that apple that was simply the most exquisite fruit Mother Nature had ever produced and wouldn’t ever produce another that would equal it, suddenly went from gourmet to poison!

So how did the BHs go about controlling a mob of hundreds of thousands that they couldn’t ignore or disrespect?”

“I love the way you drive the conversation to leave me always answerless…”

“You start a war!”

“Start a what?!?”

“A war!”

“Ok, I’ll pretend that makes sense and let you continue…”

“Didn’t you see the Wag the Dog movie? It was just one of the most brilliant masterpieces mankind has ever produced. The majority of people saw it as just another nice comedy but some of us saw it for what it really was: a parody of “Real Politik”.

“Yeah… I remember… they invented a war to distract the public opinion from internal election problems and the storyline got all tangled up because the opposition spotted and reacted to the plot and the choice for a hero went completely wrong… but what has Wag the Dog to do with Maddie?!?”

“If you can’t beat them, join them, that’s what they say and that’s exactly what the BHs did, they “joined” that mob of hundreds of thousands!

“Explain please…”

“You see, although “unplucked”, the McCann apple remained in the “kill zone” and that served the purposes of the BHs to a tee!”

“One small step to a man, one huge step to this man’s absolute confusion…”

“Don’t you see? The “abduction theory” was evidently ludicrous but who, according to public opinion, had invented it? The McCanns, right?”


“And that’s how the McCanns were, unwittingly, providing a priceless service to the BHs!”

“They were? The McCanns were providing a service to those who wanted their “blood”?

“Yes! What the McCanns were doing was to blur completely the apple tree!!! Everyone was focusing on that apple and couldn’t care less if it was or wasn’t up on a tree.

With that the BHs got what the BHs wanted: to punish the McCanns and to keep their “dark secret” completely in the dark!

So the way forward was very, very clear!”

“It was?”

“Of course! All they had to do was to keep the pressure on the McCanns being the ONLY culprits for the whole mess.

Everyone knew by now that they were now obviously “protected” by the Establishment.

However the public didn’t know it was all BH doing, through their nepotistic network, but the public didn’t need to know that, did they?

All that was needed was to go with the flow, literally, see?”

“I’ll pretend I do…”

“With the Media under control the only territory where the public could express their opinion was the internet. So it had to be controlled and controlled quickly.

When I say control I don’t mean to control the internet itself (how the BHs wish they could do that…) but to control how this subject was dealt with in it.

The BHs sent out their scouts with orders to see where on the internet the topic was being discussed and just join the fun!


“Simple technique, if someone said there that the McCanns were guilty, they would respond with, no, the McCanns really were disgustingly guilty, and if someone said there that the McCanns were disgustingly guilty, they would respond with, no, they really were heinously guilty… and so on. The more attention on the McCanns the better!

Simultaneously you had a group of people defending the McCanns with the most indefensible and ridiculous of arguments. These comments, obvious in falseness and intent to mislead, only infuriated even further those who cried for Justice.

And the more furious they became, the more they concentrated on the McCanns. ONLY on the McCanns! Understand now?”

“Yes, I have to say that I do.”

“The public, poor misguided souls, demanded, in very clear and exalted ways, that the couple be brought to Justice because there was not a shred of evidence to consubstantiate the abduction story while the evidence against them was as clear as crystal!

To further help the BHs they had the negligence campaign which they had launched for the “The McCann Hunting Party 07” still on full throttle, and this further infuriated the already furious, against who?… The McCanns and ONLY the McCanns

This was when that the Dark Clouds  #20 - Internet Disruptive Actions and #19 - Internet Bullying took form.

It became a war, the GMW,  between the so-called “Pros” vs “Antis”.

A war that started with its front line in The Mirror and then it moved to the long ago whooshed 3Arguidos Forum.

Blogs became “corners of ranting”, where people felt they could express all their fury with the blatant injustice they were witnessing.

The most basic market law states that any procurement will make the respective offer appear. That's the business core of the marketing industry: they're paid to invent and instill procurement so that those who are paying them can sell what they're offering.

There was a huge procurement to rant away. So the BHs thought wisely why not satisfy that same procurement with their own offer before risking having someone else do that before them.

That way they could easily manipulate the ranting by directing it to who? ONLY towards those evil, negligent and dastardly McCanns!

It was the time that the Dark Clouds  #25 - Misleading Forums and #24 - Misleading Blogs were formed.

Blogs popped up like mushrooms. Some of the "WH" blogs were absolutely shameless but most were so well set up and managed that whoever did set them up could fool their own moms about their own purpose.

There were, I must say, many WH blogs, genuine in their intent in the quest for truth, but even these were misguided as they served BH’s purposes, as they were, unwittingly, intoxicated by their propaganda.

The theme was COMMON and UNIQUE: The McCanns were either condemned or defended, but, once again, ONLY the McCanns!

The “Pros” used abusive language freely, which included being intolerably xenophobic, but, on the other hand, “showed” to possess a very thin skin as they would immediately whimper and whine like lost puppies at the hint of a minimal insult.

This kept the “Antis” imprisoned on their “high educational level”, trying their best to keep their interventions on a civilized level and not realizing they were being stalled in an utterly useless effort in trying to reason with those who sought nothing of the sort

What they wanted was to stall and derail and they achieved both with pretty good success. In a moment you'll see how important it was to the BHs each minute they made others literally waste.

To sum up, the BHs had the McCanns in the “kill zone” and it was decided, out of pure and real convenience, NOT to let them to leave it.

All discussions pinned down the McCanns and the T7. The discussion wasn’t just centered on them but was ONLY centered on them.

They built this nice and neat white picket fence around the subject, in which they circumscribed what was to be discussed: the McCanns and the Tapas 7.

And you know who else BHs put in there too?


By making the Portuguese detective their pet peeve they made him the favorite hero to defend and he really deserved to be defended. 

On Amaral they applied the successful “McCann technique”. The more they attacked the man the more ferocious became his defenders thus focusing the attention on anything but the “apple tree”.

Many a "WH" blog obtained prestige and loyalty just because they defended fiercely Goncalo Amaral knowing that by doing so they would gain totally dedicated supporters

They mercilessly exploited innocent souls who found themselves supporting the exact opposite of what they intended to support: those that through their Machiavellian ways made Amaral's life, including his personal one, a living hell.

Everyone could easily see that all legal battles that Amaral was forced to face, some completely external to Maddie's Case such as the Leonor Cipriano one (it baffles one's mind how the Justice System condemns the PJ to have tortured the confession out of a woman which then served to condemn her but, having supposedly proven that, maintained her in prison!) couldn't be afforded by the couple.

We were all so intoxicated to ask the obvious questions "If the McCanns don't have the money, someone is paying the couple to make Amaral's life miserable. WHO? WHY?"

"Yes... the Express' front pages in September 2007 were much more damning, hurtful and harmful to the couple than whatever they claimed Amaral did to them... 

But were the people wrong in defending Amaral the way they did?"

"Of course not! I regret not a single word I wrote in defense of the gentleman

What happened is that we all were manipulated so well that we were put in a position  in which anything we did we were cooperating with their strategy

In defending Amaral we were correctly defending someone who deserved to be defended but simultaneously we were concentrating the attention further on the McCanns and away from the "apple tree"!

If we didn't defend Amaral that would mean that they would have convinced us of his "incompetence", which wasn't real, and the effect of that would be to escalate the anger against the McCanns and the McCanns alone. 

It just couldn't get better for the BHs on what concerned Amaral!

Mr. Amaral's name was used and so much abused by them that it just goes to show how ruthless these people are as they didn't care about using all in their power to try and destroy the life of a man who was just doing his job, and doing it pretty well, just to reach their own goals: punish the McCanns and not be known what really went on in the Ocean Club."

"You're absolutely right!"

"If there were chairs around that fence, like there are around a boxing ring, what could be seen inside it? 

A vicious, vitriolic fight between the “Pros” and “Antis” about the McCanns, about the Tapas 7, about Clarence Mitchell, about Jim Gamble, about the “incompetent” PJ, about the Brit dogs, about Tony Bennett and about Gonçalo Amaral.

Not a word about what couldn’t be directly linked to the McCanns or that could in any way trespass the sanctuary of the “apple tree”.

All subjects I just referred can be placed into the “McCann apple” in its broadest sense and none even remotely to the "apple tree".

But to make completely and absolutely sure that any unattended loose end wouldn't ever, ever end up leading to the "apple tree" there was one last thing that still had to be done to seal in vacuum any and all subjects discussed to that SINGLE McCann apple."

"And that was?"

"Why, create their own fake apple tree, of course!"


"Well, the "protection" from London that was surprisingly granted to the McCanns was a very diffuse and murky mystery in the "fairy tale" they were creating and adding a detail with each passing day

We now know that the connection wasn't ever between the T9 and London but between the Guests and London.  

That connection, if revealed, would be the road that would lead directly to the apple tree. As I've said so many times, that was an unacceptable risk to be taken!

So they had to make the road go somewhere else, right?"

"Err... yes.."

"And so came to life the mythical Tapas 10, a character literally taken out of the sky.

He was mysterious and elusive because as he was no one he could be anyone! He was mythical because he was just that, pure myth!

That way, whenever a justification was needed to explain any outside help the T9 had, the road would lead to the "fake" apple tree, the Tapas 10, leaving the true tree safely tucked in its sanctuary, "far, far away".

These people thought of everything! they even thought of the two things that still lacked for the whole thing be set up to perfection! Do you know what they were?

“Sorry, my mind is going on overdrive here... do tell, please…”

“The “Lock & Key” and the “Monsters & Demons”

“Please tell me that these “Lock & Key” and “Monsters & Demons” are not taking us back to your Monopoly game are we?

“No, of course not. These two elements were essential elements to control all that had to be controlled and win this war. The Monopoly analogy was to explain why it has come to a stalemate

“Go on.”

“The “Lock & Key” was the Dark Cloud #22 - Libel Terror Campaign. Its mission was to guarantee that discussion never left that apple and that it never, ever, got anywhere near the "apple tree".

So, if you want to set a limit that is NOT to be surpassed at ALL COSTS, how do you go about doing that?”

“Make sure the other side knows that if that line is crossed you’ll act lethally, mercilessly and swiftly. That way they won’t even try to cross it…”

Wrong! Absolutely and completely wrong!


“Because you’re not protecting the line against those lunatics who regardless of threats will call your bluff, even if it isn’t bluff at all, and will cross the line as a direct challenge. And even if you do, like you promised you would, act lethally, mercilessly and swiftly, you’ve failed because the line has been crossed, hasn’t it?”

“Well, yes… but then how else can one protect it then?”

“Easy, you just have to set a line before the one you don’t want crossed and then, like you say, make sure the other side knows that if that FIRST line is crossed you’ll act lethally, mercilessly and swiftly.

So now if a lunatic crosses that FIRST line, you pounce on him like a wild animal infected with rabies, shred him to bits as cruelly and gruesomely as possible in front of all so they can see that you mean business.

That way they’ll think that FIRST line is the one you’re effectively defending, which, as you know its NOT. The line you don’t want crossed is further back and has remained untouched.”

The more lines you set before the one that you’re really interest in defending the better it is defended.

So where did the BHs draw their first line? At Tapas 7.

And how did they show they mean business? By having them be the first libel winners and that’s why you had Express cough up £375,000 together with a bucketful of apologies.

The move is brilliant! It kills two rabbits with one stone. Or better, with that one stone it kills a rabbit and Tyrannosaurus Rex!

The rabbit was us bloggers. We all became constantly afraid and were to be very careful before we wrote anything

Even readers were afraid to read! The BHs, like the terrifying boogeyman of our childhood, made it very clear the threat that they could pick on anyone just for commenting and drag them to Court on the way to total bankruptcy!

Absolutely ridiculous but effective. One just has to look on how many have “liked” our Facebook page. We seem to have more than a dozen readers and that's a fact: 

Anyway, if the rabbit were the bloggers, the Tyrannosaurus Rex was the mainstream media and book publishers. 

Never in the history of mankind have we ever witnessed such collective cowardice

By having a paper to be the first victim of libel and by having the reputed libel warriors Carter-Ruck behind the McCanns they made the Maddie issue to became LEGAL TABOO in anything that contradicted the parents.

I saw the same Media that publicly refused to accept the censorship imposed by certain Dictators who demanded to approve questions previously, considering it, and rightfully so, as an intolerable external interference in their duty to their public BUT cowered before the “Almighty Couple” and interviewed them with only questions previously approved by the McCanns!! How vexatious that must have been to many Dictators worldwide!!

About the English-speaking Book Publishers, I just hope History will be just and fair with them for they deserve the harshest of punishments

At the exact point in time in History that they could have made a difference between themselves and the internet they turned their face the other way and pretended not to hear the call. They turned their face so the fear couldn't be seen at the time History demanded them to be brave

History has this tendency of not being forgiving with cowards.

And all this LIBEL TERROR was based on a “fact” reported by Brit papers that a Brit paper had coughed up a lump of money and apologized, when those same Brit papers we knew were conning us about the whole case!

Was the money really paid? Did the money really go into the Fraudulent Fund? I very much doubt it. But what matters is that they wanted to show us they meant business and to that extent they were extremely effective.

Also, and that is the beauty of it, with this, they set two lines before the line they really wanted to protect!”

“What?!? Say that again, please!”

“They set the FIRST line at the Tapas 7, right?”


“So if being libelous against that Tapas 7 was dangerous, then it meant that moving on the McCanns would be suicidal!”

“Yes, that’s true…”

“If the McCanns are where the line that represents the "apple", where is the line for the "apple tree?"”

“Behind that one… it can’t be seen…”

“Exactly! FIRST the Tapas 7 line, THEN the McCann one and very, very far into the background the "apple tree" line.

If speaking about the McCanns you always had to be careful otherwise you would land yourself in a suicidal law suit, how comfortable would you feel to say anything that would point a finger about anyone outside the McCanns and the Tapas 7?”

“Comfortable to the point of keeping my mouth shut. Tightly shut, that is!”

“And tightly shut for two reasons. The first because it guaranteed that you wouldn’t see the "apple tree" and, the second, because if you caught even a glimpse of it, the thought “best not go that way” would override all your other thoughts!

So libel was the “Lock & Key” to guarantee that no one was discussed outside those that were “put” inside the nice and neat white picket fence. Understand now?”

“Yes, I do. And what about the Dungeons & Dragons?”

“That’s what I meant, sorry.”

“Well that was a twofold issue…”

“Can’t anything be simple in this case?!?”

“It IS simple dear, once you understand its complexities. Have I said anything up to now that you didn’t understand, make sense or be logical?”


“I rest my case. Anyway, “Monsters & Demons” was to, firstly, stop recruitment and, secondly, accelerate the erosion of time.

“What have Monsters & Demons to do with recruitment and with erosion?!?”

“Well, with this war, like with all others that take place daily on the internet, there’s an initial massive adherence but the flow rate of newcomers starts to diminish very fast. Faster than the rate of people who lose interest in the subject.

In simple terms, there are more who abandon the subject than those who are newcomers, which means that there’s a constant decrease of people interested in that particular subject.

If you cut recruitment altogether and accelerate the abandonment rate, then the subject gets lost in the vast entrails of the internet forever.

That’s why various topics discussed on the internet have a very short lifespan. What is hot news today, in a months time it will be boring and boring only to those who still remember, which will be very few.

So, if you’re able to contain that initial wave of interest, then the topic will dwindle away to be forgotten very quickly.

So the successful exploitation of this time erosion factor is critical and will win war after war on the internet.

As we’ve seen, the Maddie case is absolutely exceptional. It kept billions interested for more than 4 months. Then, as I said, and I was speculating in benefit of the BHs, it very quickly dwindled down to hundreds of thousands.

The world had indeed fallen passionately in love with Maddie and the subject wasn’t going to go away easily or if at all. So if all this public interest couldn’t be contained, an effort should be made to drive the public away.

That crowd needed to be eroded quickly and driven away as fast as possible. For each one that left it would mean one less person the BHs had at risk of finding the “apple tree”.

Hence the “Monsters & Demons” clutter.

The main mission of some “misleading blogs” was to be… blatantly and shockingly misleading! The more shocking and lunatic the better!

For example, if a blog posted the photo of the back of the head of someone and stated categorically that it was Mr. X who they knew, but couldn’t tell from where, had connections with a Satanistic Cult from Northern Siberia and that it was where Maddie was sacrificed in a ceremonial full of… well, if you were searching for Maddie on the internet and this came across, would you come back?”

“Of course not!”

“That’s what I mean! They defended the various most basic myth theories themes, those based on the freemasonry, on paedophilia, on scientific/medical experimentation, on gigantic real estate scandals, on a conspiracy to kill Maddie, etc… all myth creating clutter. The whackier and sillier the better!

One wonders why they left out alien abduction although under “scientific experimentation” a chip to be embedded under a child’s skin to help locate her was brought up!


“Seriously. This was to put off new readers as when they approached the subject they would be confronted by the most absurd theories and would indeed think that all those interested in Maddie were lonesome deranged lunatics!

You either discussed what was inside the nice and neat white picket fence and you were considered as sane or you discussed all that gibberish outside it and were basically seen as insane. A nice and neat frontier to differentiate the "reasonable" from... well, people like us.

It was the generalized use of the Advocatus Attack technique which was to make people confuse the message with the acute unpleasantness of the messenger.

This, as I said, both avoided the “entry” of “new recruits” as well as accelerated the process of driving people away.

But not only the blogs/forums had this mission. We also had another character who became very famous, and who had those exact same objectives.”

Famous? Who?”


“Think, dear, think. If you really wanted to help the McCanns who would you send in as a spokesman: Clarence Mitchell  or someone more like Jeremy Irons or Pierce Brosnan?

People tend to forget that Clarence wasn't the first spokesperson for the McCanns. It was the discreet Justine McGuinness.”

“Well… I see where you going with that… but must confess that I’m not exactly following…”

“Don’t tell me that the UK Government, from where Mitchell was supposed having been sent from to help, didn’t have a person more gentlemanly like to be a spokesman than Clarence for such a sensitive issue like Maddie

I mean it was JUST THE subject that was being followed attentively by the whole world and the best that UK could come up with was Clarence Mitchell?!?

To believe that Clarence was the best the UK had, is the same as believing that the best police the UK had to handle this process was the Leicester Constabulary, instead of Scotland Yard!

It’s obvious that he was intentionally obnoxiously arrogant and had that horribly abhorrent dress sense for the same reason

If all that was natural or if he played a role only he can say, but he certainly caused a bad impression from the very first minute, didn’t he?”

“You bet! Those pink shirts…”

“Exactly! By having the public confronted with an obnoxious ill-dressed spokesman the BHs achieved not one but three goals.

The first goal, and more obvious, was to enhance the “Establishment Protection” granted to the couple and this fueled further conspiracy myths whereby Dr. Gerald McCann became one of the most powerful men in the world. If you read some theories it seemed the man could summon two nuclear submarines and an aircraft carrier with less than a day’s notice!

This helped create an "environment" whereby Gerry, or someone from Tapas, could directly manipulate London into doing whatever was desired to be done.

At all costs the image we showed in our Grey Area post had to be maintained: the McCanns acted alone in PdL but due to some mysterious and inexplicable powers they had been able to force London to help them.

The second goal was to do with Clarence what they did with the "Mythical Tapas10" and that was to create a road about the very strange connection between the Media and the Maddie case that would also lead to the fake apple tree and NOT, obviously, to the real one that had to be protected at all costs.

In this instance Clarence himself is the "Tapas 10", so to speak."

"Explain, please."

"They  had to find some way to explain the reasons as to why and how the Media was being so blatantly manipulated

So they "gave" the same "super-powers" to Clarence that they had "given" to the T9. If the T9 could mysteriously manipulate London then Clarence was also able to manipulate the Media

And so a Media Monitor became a Media Expert all of a sudden.

One just has to look at the man to wonder how it was possible to spin that this Media Monitor had the minimum ability to exert such sort of influence!

Yes, he did manipulate media by putting his own spin on what was said and instead of speaking directly to media, it was always - a source close to the family, but this is just basic manipulation of information, anyone can do it. 

But to manipulate the whole Media, that's a different ball game altogether!

But many fell for the spin because it conveniently kept being said that he was able to do just that and by forcing this ludicrous message forward they were able to explain the inexplicable: the cowardly and disgusting tameness of the Media before a couple of middle class doctors.

The third goal, less obvious, but equally effective, was to create a negative aura around the Maddie issue. With each appearnce on TV he single-handedly drove more people away from the issue than anyone else!

“Yes, I agree with that!”

So if you put together all I’ve said up to now, you’ll see the BHs masterfully made into a widely accepted DOGMA that any statement that condemned the McCanns was truthful and that any statement that favoured the couple was evidently fake or suspicious.

Plus, any contradictions found within statements that condemned the McCanns weren’t discussed as they certainly had a reasonable explanation even if you couldn’t see it, while all contradictions from statements that favoured the couple were completely nitpicked and highlighted.

They had us in trench warfare where not only were the BHs fighting right next to us, as we were basically doing all the fighting for them: “shooting” the McCanns and the McCanns ONLY.

For how long and how many times did we call the McCanns negligent? All “shots” on BHs’ behalf

To the point that if you took a worldwide poll right this very minute, I guarantee you that the vast majority of people still think that’s what they were! And you don’t have to go worldwide. Take the poll just in Portugal and in the UK, and the results will be the same.

We were brilliantly misled into thinking that we were firing against a trench full of mysterious and malicious friends of the McCanns, while in reality the opposing trench was filled with nothing but scarecrows with helmets on their heads to look like soldiers

We were more like a firing squad against a single scarecrow!

“You are making sense, woman!”

Textusa was a late arrival at the scene, on October 30th, 2008 with The Strategic Importance of Blogs/Forums post, but I quickly put my gear on, helmet on my head, picked up my gun and proudly took my place in the battle.

But for some reason Textusa was never accepted as a true sister-in-arms among those fighting to bring the McCanns to justice. Textusa was rarely mentioned and the blog outcast almost to the point of isolation.

You see, when our blog hit the “swinging chord”, although initially only limited to the T9, it was too close to the truth for comfort. It was deemed “unsafe” to side with. Whoever was behind it seemed intelligent enough to look right through that apple and see the apple tree!”

“And they were right!”

“Thank you, dear… but you’re married to me so your opinion as far from being unbiased...

So Textusa was deemed rogue by friend and foe alike, or to rephrase it, Textusa was deemed rogue by foe and foe alike so that any possible friendly reader would be immediately “injected” with that perception.

Only the intelligent stayed and that’s the biggest compliment I can pay to our readers!

We lived comfortably with that “rogue status” as we fully understood their game. We never allowed ourselves to be drawn into fights they tried to drag us into.

“Just one question, you’re still explaining why Cameron was misinformed when he decided to order the SY Review, right?

“Of course, dear. I was just explaining how and why the war started and how it was fought. Don’t forget that it was a conflict that went on from September 2007 till May 2011. It was quite a long and global conflict.

Only after Textusa's "Pearl Harbour" did things change significantly.

“Your what?!?”

"Pearl Harbour, dear, well, sort of, at least... but for you to understand that you must first understand the “monkey business” that took place during the first 1,000 days of the conflict.

“Monkey business ?!? 1,000 days?!?”

“Yes, you heard it right. Can we leave it for tomorrow?”

Post Scriptum:

We'd like to thank our readers, Alex. and an Anon, who confirmed that Clarence Mitchell assumed the role of spokesman for the McCanns exactly at the same time there was a 180 degree direction change on the part of the Brit Tabloids concerning their opinion about the couple and their possible guilt.
