The pub get-together

Who watches the watchers?

horizons4

Following on from the previous post which showed various watchers around the world, there are some obvious questions – why are they watching, who appointed them when we have a police force, for better or worse and are they friendly or hostile? Who watches them in turn?

So I went exploring and various interesting things came up. There was someone called the Golden Dawn or New Dawn or whatever who was into Enoch and the igrigori – one snippet was that the Kurds and Yezedi are not necessarily the innocents we might think – they seem to be into revering the Djinn and thus the Muslim attitude is a bit more understandable.

There was the Cato Institute but why they would be there under the search word is a puzzle. Still, a snippet there had the Koch Bros as the funders, which is better than Soros at least.…

Right before our eyes

There is copious evidence of the use of symbolism by the other side.

The two statues “of liberty” are a perfect case, being representative of Ishtar, from the intention of the mason who designed it to the suns rays.  The obelisk in St Peter’s Square is another when the shrubbery is put about it on the occasion of Easter. And forever the cover story is given as to what it’s about.

This is one of the latest:

Isabel Hardman, at the Spectator, asks:

Have you ever walked or driven past a piece of ‘public art’ and wondered how on earth it got commissioned, or whether it is just a bit of leftover junk from a building site? In this week’s Spectator, Stephen Bayley awards the inaugural ‘What’s That Thing?’ prize to the very worst specimen he can find: Dashi Namdakov’s ‘She Guardian’ on Park Lane, pictured above. And it really is awful.

The rise of the secret sociopath

Part One: The overview today

There’s an awful lot of tension about just now on many levels and it seems to me to come down to a few things:

1.  A clear agenda by forces which can be loosely grouped as Them – some call them the PTB, some specify the UN, the EU, whatever – they can be seen in Call Me Dave’s utterly pointless stance at the moment, holding the country to ransom and at odds with 69% of the population on this issue at least.

2.  A clear increase in madness of a sort at ground level, at grassroots level, manifesting itself in strange behaviours, in noble and decent mindsets subordinated and such things taking their place as firstly – no one caring about anyone else – it was ever so that people looked after N1 first but this is so nakedly done now, it’s a product of our time.…

Just leave well enough alone

For Heaven’s sake, why?

Easter to fall on SAME day every year under new plans by Archbishop of Canterbury and church leaders

190px-Beda_Petersburgiensis_f3vThe matter was sorted at that meeting some time back, so why change it now?  Why all this interfering, changing things which have served well?  women bishops, gay “marriage”, it’s a nightmare visited upon the church by non-Christians.

Easter is is the first Sunday after the first full moon after the spring equinox and there it is. and the lying toerag Welby, using the term “simplified” just as bombs on Vietnam were euphemized as “peaceful purposes”. Welby speak with forked tongue.

Why change it?  To accommodate business.  Will Islam change its Ramadan?  So why should we change Easter?…

Jayne Mansfield

Jayne Mansfield was different to Tuesday Weld and not just for obvious, physical reasons.

mansfield loren

Weld was a revered and feared satanist luminary in that world – some write it as druid priestess – and her pedigree reads like a Who’s Who in intergenerational evil.  She was of the old money, though to look at this slip of a girl, she just seemed an abused child, which of course she had been.…

Muslim Golden Age myth – the shoddiness of modern scholarship

A worthy academic, one of the good ones, whose custom and might I say friendship is greatly appreciated, has mentioned, regarding the Muslim world, as commentary after the four post series, that the Islamic world was more vast and:

more advanced

More advanced than what? Than the Crusading west? And in which century? If the 11th to 15th, then there is a case. If the 7th to 10th, as we’ve seen over the four posts, there is no case.

There really is little evidence of any learning not derived from earlier learning then bastardized, within the 7th to 10th centuries dwelt on in the posts [see Carson in part one]. The Muslims owe a particular debt to Persia but that is Persian, not Muslim.…

The shifting sands of Rome

shifting sands

Terribly sorry to my Catholic friends whom I know to be doctrinally correct but this says it all now:

Pope Francis assures atheists: You don’t have to believe in God to go to heaven

Yes, I’ve read the fine print of the words he actually did say but again I’m sorry – it’s sophistry and subterfuge. The demise of Ratzinger and this man’s accession does indeed start to look like the end game.…

The Resurrection

Yes, gentle reader, thank the Lord this is the last post on the matter for another year. :)

Those waking up yesterday morning would have been treated to one Christmas reference after another, the Prime Minister’s not least.

It was everywhere from the Guardian to various other sites, Christian and not, such as why the Holly and the Ivy made the crossover to the new religion.

The key element in 2015 is the resurgence in references to Christmas by name. Readers might recall the Empire Striking Back some years back when Nativities were being cancelled and mayors of towns were proclaiming Winterval and paganism.

However, the Great Public, as frustrating to the centre-right libertarian as to the left, refused to play ball.  For sure church buildings now lie unused, with plans for boutiques and nightclubs in there, so if that’s so, why on earth would anyone still be making reference to Christmas as if they believe in it?…

Christmas morn

Un flambeau, Jeannette, Isabelle is a Christmas carol which originated from the Provence region of France in the 16th century. The song is usually notated in 3/8 time.

The carol was first published in 1553 in France, and was subsequently translated into English in the 18th century. The song was originally not a song to be sung at Christmas, but rather dance music for French nobility.

It seems likely that the melody was written by Charpentier, derived from the air à boire Qu’ils sont doux, bouteille jolie from the now lost Le médecin malgré lui.

In the carol, visitors to the stable have to keep their voices down so the newborn can enjoy his dreams. To this day in the Provence region, children dress up as shepherds and milkmaids, carrying torches and candles to Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve, while singing the carol.

The painter Georges de La Tour painted a nativity scene based on the carol.…

Christmas Eve

And so here we are, the second most important night of the year, time to roll out the big guns – hope you enjoy it.

Adeste Fideles is a Christmas carol which has been attributed to various authors, including John Francis Wade (1711–1786), with the earliest copies of the hymn all bearing his signature, John Reading (1645–1692) and King John IV of Portugal (1604–1656).

The original four verses of the hymn were extended to a total of eight, and these have been translated into many languages. The English translation of “O Come, All Ye Faithful” by the English Catholic priest Frederick Oakeley, written in 1841, is widespread in most English speaking countries.[2][4] The present harmonisation is from the English Hymnal (1906).…
