Enoch and the upcoming election

Whilst this is the case, as mentioned by Restoring Britain:

This observation stands more starkly than ever with a General Election looming large. The circus has come out in full swing with a legacy media joining in. I get a real sense that some will vote tribally, more people than ever are really uncertain as to what to do mostly because the differences between them are so sadly lacking just like their vision for Britain. What do they do? Refuse to vote?

Well, it’s an approach and I can understand it given what’s on offer. We’re in something of a Catch-22 situation. Vote for what’s in front of us and the situation continues. Refuse to vote and they survive because our apathy allows the tribal voting to remain the dominant approach which the parties rely on and stoke the fires of each election.

… the forces arrayed against a shake-up of the Establishment are doing their worst, this time the allegations about Enoch Powell.…

Where should the line be drawn on homosexuality?

The thing is, I don’t recognize the quote further down in the post as Christian in the least and never have accepted the fire and brimstone preacher, visiting God’s wrath upon others as his agent.

In fact, I do recognize in this man further down the page something quite the opposite, from the adversary’s camp. Don’t get me wrong, I’m implacably opposed, on a sociological level, to that thing in the Pink News Wiggia sent of some lesbian woman pretending she and her partner had just had a child.

That is utter BS. A child requires a father just as much. Those women are committing a crime against nature not necessarily by what they do as adults together but by bringing a child into the mix, by condemning some poor child to an eternity without his or her real father and with a skewed view of life.

That is, they are not giving that child the start he or she has a right to and that is a crime.…

A real threat to our freedom and culture [2]

Though nominally Protestant, this writer is no Catholic basher, as Catholic readers well know and much of the original church teaching is still Catholic teaching renamed.

There are things combining to drive a crowbar into the Church, the better to wreck it and it’s happening to every Church, not just the Catholic.

The American Presbyterians are a disgrace with their gay “marriage” which any Christian knows is anti-scriptural, the Southern Baptists leave themselves wide open to corruption charges, the US megachurch high priests have their Lear jets, Welby and Co. are corrupt over here. So if I dwell on the Catholics today, it is in addition to, not isolated and alone.…

Friday March 20th auspicious?

Kaboom

Interesting that this was filed under Science at the Indy.

Can’t see that on wider reading, any “Christian” minister would say it’s the end of things because it’s clearly stated that we can’t know.  But just as Christians can’t know, nor can the idiots commenting at the Independent who were in full river of Egypt mode, not a shred of counter-evidence offered – we’re just supposed, on their say-so, as against centuries of scribes, saints and philosophers saying otherwise, to accept their witterings holus bolus.…

Before reading, one should understand the bias of the writer

European/Middle-Eastern history is so fragmented, such a mish-mash of royal lines, power blocs and peddlers of influence that it’s very difficult to get a line on any common factors.

If you were to put Newton and Leibniz at the centre and throw in three different references, then it becomes easier to discern the warring parties – Catholics, Protestants, the new Rationalists and Venice. Each has its own history, its own angle.

The reason I’m so down on gainsaying – the “no it’s not” approach with no back-up – is that it takes so damned long to come to the truth in the first place. One has to sift through thousands of pages and every one of those pages needs to be seen in the context of the bias of the author. And the truth is not always a “balance” between these. Quite often, there is disinformation by one or more parties which eventually needs discounting.…

The Jews [1]

achtung

Karl Denninger was referring to preppers and that’s a topic in itself but one of the examples he used and the one I’d like to follow up, was:

Hitler’s soldiers frequently came into a town with a few dozen men armed with machine guns and rounded up thousands of people, marching them into waiting boxcars.

The decision point to either riot or get into the boxcar happened right then and there, and was irrevocable.

Elisa Lam

If you look at the map below, the greenery top left is Mulholland Drive/Laurel Canyon among other things – it’s the Hollywood hills.  Lower right is Hollywood itself and then further into LA is the Cecil Hotel.

In February 2013, a 21-year-old student from Vancouver, Canada, was found dead inside the Cecil Hotel’s rooftop water tank in Los Angeles. The L.A. County Department of Coroner ruled the death “accidental due to drowning” and said no traces of drugs or alcohol were found during the autopsy.

How significant is today’s address?

On the surface and in the fallout in the media – probably not a lot. Twitter will go crazy. Further down the track – possibly the first step, the end of the beginning.

There’s going to come a time and maybe soon, when apocalyptists, as I call them, are going to have to accept that it’s not yet. Equally, it’s going to be apparent, finally, to self-styled rationalists, that perhaps there’s something to history and that one set of documents is saying we’re coming towards the denouement for this planet.

Of the three main monotheistic religions, Christianity has the most developed eschatology, the most specific, shall we say.

I’d like to address human arrogance. In the Nero Wolfe post, it was said lightheartedly – but in reality, it’s anything but lighthearted and there is an arrogance in humans choosing to ignore history.…

The destruction of heritage by the yahoos

The brief at OoL was that posts, in some way, were connected to the concept of freedom and a natural corollary of that – its limits.

Should burquas be banned? Should smoking in public places? Should there be any bans at all, e.g. people decapitating others in the name of a cause?

And the stance of the blog, namely that there is no real stance beyond live and let live, really comes under severe pressure when it’s clear that some are operating under the rules of comment is free, not to put an alternative point of view but to proselytize and coerce, as one person falsely claimed OoL was trying to do, when in fact they were the ones doing it by curtailing discussion.

There is so much faux claim and counterclaim on this issue and one section of society which has severely pressurized the libertarian is Islam. Below are excerpts from a PJM article on the destruction of thousands of years history by ISIS.…

The power of the conjunction “and”

You can go the Communist Party way of explaining the world if you like, or my mate’s way when he rails against people discussing whether it’s incompetence or evil intent:

“Why the “or”?” he asks, “surely it’s “and”?”

Or perhaps you prefer the Sa’udi way [H/T haiku].  It seems people are always misreading how the world works.  Or are they?  Is it perhaps some giant theatre, quite easy to understand and yet chilling all the same.  I’ll go into that further down.

Meanwhile, from Chuckles, this little gem from Jordan:…

It war Bobby!

bobby didditSo anyway, Ian Beale got photos of Cheryl Fernando Verjazzle’s bum on his bedroom wall, it war Jane that Emma phoned, and met. That’s why Emma said ‘it’s still murder’ after Jane explained Bobby did it but At least there was a bit of comedy with that child birth.

So Emma (the detective) phoned Bobby and said “I know you killed Lucy !” !!!  BUT he blew his nose and the drastically thin Lucy fell over and hit her head. When Denise was looking over the toilet dos anyone else notice how massive her fingers and nails looked… That was scary!!!!!

Bobby’s face and behaviour after killing his own sister was like he’d just pinched her monopoly money, and not just caved her head in. And I love the way he managed to phone Jane, whilst still holding the murder weapon.  Am just waiting to see how Jane managed to move the body……maybe it was Ian.…

Blueprints for Them

The federalist, bureaucratic model

Within the US, according to Svali, this is how the Illuminati supposedly have it set up:

Level One: Local level: (anytown, USA) sister groups

Level Two: Metropolitan leadership council

Baalim (head) (1), assistants to the head (2) administrators over finances and day to day happenings (4), head trainers (oversee and teach other trainers) (6). The total: 13 members. The Baalim and his two assistants report to:

Level Three: Regional Leadership Council

Head of council (1), Military (2 seats), Spiritual (2 seats), Scholarship (2 seats), Finances (2 seats), Training (2 seats), Sciences (2 seats). Total: 13 members

The seven regional councils each have a leader as noted above, who reports to the:
