Silly is silly. Best be ignored.
But sometimes one sees something silly and one feels that one has to act, for example, intervening when a child is doing something silly before she hurts herself.
There’s a difference between having to act and feeling impelled to do so. Sometimes people do silly things just to provoke a reaction.
And that’s what’s happening lately in the Maddie Affair with this Birch episode.
Let’s first just look at how silly this silliness is.
Remember how easy it was do debunk the “SIC Mediums” silliness with our posts Just SIC(K)... Or Maybe Not and Desperate Disinformation?
Well this one is slightly easier to debunk its silliness.
Notwithstanding that's it’s a rather farfetched idea for someone who isn’t known to have shown, at least up until now, any interest in the case, to decide to fly thousands of miles, hire a machine, trespass a backyard, where apparently there are 2 big dogs, 4 times in the middle of the night, and fly back to South Africa; there’s a physical reality that proves this individual is not exactly being precise in what he's saying: the Summer Solstice which happened on June 20th this year.
As we can see, the South African gentleman seems to have stated that he trespassed Murat's house between 05.00 and 06.00. The print screen below seems to confirm that fact:
We’re talking just 3 days after the day with the longest time of daylight of the year. At that time the daylight is not what is seen in videocap below:
But it’s the third absolutely silly episode in a very short amount of time. The first was the “SIC Medium”, the second the “SY 195 new leads” and now the “Birch Machine”, and that’s too much silliness about the same subject for it to be random.
Someone is trying to send a message and is not very much worried about the logic of which post card it’s using to send it. Anything will do.
Let’s start with what we can extract from these three episodes. Forget the silliness in them all and do concentrate on what they’re trying to tell you.
In the first episode, the “SIC Mediums”, the message was that Maddie is dead, that she died in the Apartment and the body was present in the area of the Boavista Golf Club. It implicates solely the parents and the remainder T7 and the possible involvement of John Geraghty is ambiguous leaving quite a good margin for it to be denied.
In the second episode, the “SY’s 195 new leads” the message is clear: the British Police officially state that there’s enough new evidence for the case to be reopened and the fact that it insults the competence of the Portuguese Authorities and that the whole thing wasn’t minimally coordinated are minor details.
In this third episode, the message again insists on Maddie being dead, involves the parents and involves directly the Murats, regardless of the silly disclaimer below as it’s silly to think that somebody places a body beneath a cement coverage without the knowledge of the owners of the property:
Waters are being tested. By whom and with what objective remains unclear, but it’s now certain that muddy waters are indeed being stirred. And with the same modus operandi that has been pattern in this entire affair: shamelessness. But maybe that’s the whole idea.
Now, let’s just concentrate on this last episode, to see if we can understand something out of all this. Remember that this isn’t either for you or us. We’re all simple spectators of a game that is going on, although to call it such is an absolute understatement because it’s ruthless and fierce and the price for victory or loss is indeed significant.
First thing noted was that only the Portuguese Media, mainly Correio da Manhã, picked up the issue. In Britain, as far as we’re aware, besides the sole “Brunt crime report” on Sky News, the issue has been practically ignored.
Second thing noted is the silence from SY which is deafening and still ongoing. Correio da Manha has reported that the British Police have met to analyse the issue, but to date, not a word about it from them. Is this among the 195 new leads, or is this the 196th?
Third thing noted was the tardiness of the McCanns intervention and obvious lack of enthusiasm in it. They appear to be very reluctant and uncomfortable about the subject and not because they’re afraid of the body being found... but they do seem to be afraid.
Fourth and last thing noted was the reaction from the BHs. For a while I had to ask myself who was in disagreement that the whole thing was silly as both WHs and BHs were, strangely enough, on the same side of the fence.
But while during the “SIC Medium” episode, where the BHs remained calm and poised, during this episode they became apoplectic. They attacked GA when GA was the first to show how silly the whole thing was and even went as far as complimenting the efficiency of the ERVD dogs!
We believe that some BHs are not fully in the loop and are totally confused as to what is going on. They won't all be in the inner circle because leaks and information will be kept to minimum numbers. They are just paid to keep confusion going but they are finding themselves in contradictory positions. It's funny that they have to criticise blogs which are saying the same as them, although there is nothing remotely funny about the inner circle and what they are doing.
The BHs have found themselves in a position of knowing not who exactly to attack but needing to attack someone. So they’ve exhorted Murat, both in comments made in WH and BH blogs and forums alike, to take legal action against Birch and have highlighted, as if it was needed, all the obvious details that make the whole thing to be indeed silly.
They've acted furiously frightened and that was so telling. The amount of effort going into this hoax is remarkable and ghastly in equal measure.
This particular testing of waters had the peculiarity that for the first time it implicates non-T9: Robert and Jennifer Murat and the mysterious MJS. The first 2 we know, the latter must be hiding in the fictitious “unpublished PJ Files”.
So from Episode 1 – The SIC Mediums to Episode 3 – The Birch Machine, we have an intentional upscaling of those being involved in the silliness and with that the silliness stops to be silly, doesn’t it?
From what we gather someone wants a closure for this case. We think that the terms of “surrender” are being discussed between UK Gov and NI in a war between sharks where the goldfish simply pray and have no say.
However, in this war, there’s another shark in the game, and it seems that it doesn’t want to play any more: the Portuguese Gov. It came out scarred from the last game and it seems not to be in the humour to get involved again.
The problem is that without the third shark there seems to be no game. It holds homefield advantage on the only playing field it’s possible to play the game. If it doesn’t open its doors to the other players there's no pitch to play on, thus this pressure, both from Episode 2 – 195 New Leads and Episode 3 – The Birch Machine, to force Portugal into play.
But can the game be played without a pitch? Yes, it can. If you can’t catch goldfish with a line and a hook, you can always shoot it out of the water.
It’s silly to use a cannon to get a goldfish in a pond but sometimes one really has to do really silly things to really show the goldfish that one really means it.
And we’ve seen really silly things, haven’t we?
