Is the tide turning in the war for western civilization?

Today is polling day in the States.

For the rest of us, as Christmas approaches, it’s so heartwarming to see reports coming in from around the world that despite the most strident last ditch efforts of leftist atheists who see their chance of their new world dystopia blunted by ordinary people, in the same way that people are doing this through UKIP here, also wrecking the EU dystopic dream – it’s so heartening to see these horse’s backsides get theirs.

A small Alabama town’s Christmas parade had the best attendance in years, even though it had to officially change its theme proclaiming faith in Jesus Christ because of a letter from a left-wing atheist organization.

The City of Piedmont, Alabama, located roughly 15 miles west of the the Alabama/Georgia state line, was set to host a Christmas parade with the theme, “Keep Christ in Christmas,” until it received a letter from the Wisconsin-based atheist group Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF), asserting a single person from the City complained about the theme.

One way to resolve our troubles

Capital and labour

Greed.  Fear. Intransigence.  Dishonesty.  Attitude.

Was it JD who said that the problem is people’s personal greed?  Seven deadly sins but especially greed.

It is but it must also be seen in the context of what other forces are playing on the individual.  While there is perma-greed in there, ofttimes the wage demand is fear driven, fear of falling behind in the race to oblivion – wages, prices, wages, prices.  As you know, it’s fear of prices plus fear of the employer holding you back.…

The worm in the bud

This is for American Thanksgiving Day this Thursday.

It’s the eternal motif, it’s never changed. It’s called, variously, the worm in the bud, the tares among the wheat. It involves a new hope, a new dawn but even in that new dawn are the seeds of doom, the evil outside awaiting that crack in the armour to make its way in.

It’s always been the same. In the 20s, it looked exciting – the new jazz, the vibrancy, the dress styles, the fabulous art and design – for many, the best age of all in recent history. Dearieme’s contributions reinforce that.

And yet genuine evil was at work inside. For every new woman, liberated, a Bright Young Thing, the It Girl, was the seamier side – rampant promiscuity, breakdown in relations, breakdown in marriages and when it ended, when the bubble burst, it was these which remained. In Paris and Berlin, women in various stages of pregnancy stood on street corners to be looked over and hired by passing males with money.…

Attitude

The actual topic of this first issue could have been anything – it’s the attitude which counts.  The silly person in this case was a married woman but it could well have been Walter Mitty, Don Quixote or anyone.

This married woman wrote salacious novels in the genre of 50 Shades, that sort of thing. She became well known and popular worldwide among women of low moral compass, creating a superman who was everything she fantasized about and then she fell in love with her own creation.

Pygmalion, where art thou?  So she left and divorced her husband for her creation – quite understandable really.  Some comments:…

There might be something in this astrology stuff

Brazil05

Don’t know how much faith you have in this astrology stuff.  Rossa and Twilight think I have none but every so often something happens which takes the breath away.

A little voice says, ‘Hang on, these things are put in such general terms that it could be speaking of everyone and you only look at your own so don’t see what’s written about others.’

Well actually, I did, and they were different things.…

Rose of the World, Slenderman and others

Revealed: The desperate last days of Russian supermodel, 20, who took running leap from her New York apartment building ‘after joining brutal Rose of the World cult’

If we can de-Mail-ify this, the danger is that if I run a link to the Wiki entry on it, how many young people or women will click into it and start taking it onboard?  You’d have to say almost none but can I take the risk?

the eyesI’m at the point now I couldn’t care less about if people were offended by that last paragraph or not – my job is to tell it as it is. Who are the most susceptible to these sorts of things?  One need only look at cults such as Manson and Jim Jones to see it.

There are men who tend to be henchmen, enforcers, the real murderers and then a range of female accolytes, then the mass of converts who can be male and female.…

The club is dark

No one with any vestige of credibility goes near Icke in his writing.

Which is wrong because he gets a lot of it right, i.e. corroborated elsewhere – it’s just the weird stuff which kills it for him, thinking he’s God or whatever he was meant to have done.

I’ll go into anyone’s writing, even Hitler’s, if it will throw up some snippets, some little facts, not otherwise known. In research, there must be a certain opportunism. With Yallop, the issue was not the good oil but the way he joined dots for us. That’s always a worry.

Looking at a regular OoL commenter’s comment:

Considering the revelations made about MP’s sexual depravity of the child rape and murders the happened (alleged?)at Dolphin Square, with the Elm guest house, North Wales, the Dickens porfolio,the obvious state protection of these VDP’s (very depraved people) in the highest ranks of government, to trust the welfare of your child to a government employee local or otherwise is downright dangerous, how many closet paedos lurking in the Hove Childrens Board..

Apocalypse now

al-aqsa-mosque-closed.si

Abbas’ statements mirrored comments made by Hamas chief Khaled Meshaal, who earlier urged Muslims to “defend” the holy mosque after Israeli forces restricted entrance for Palestinians. Meshaal further accused Israel of trying to seize the site.

Hey, this is really good.  I thought it would never start.  I didn’t think they’d move until this red heifer biz was resolved.  There’ve been false alarms in the last few years but this might be the one.  This may have been one of the things Nethanyahu interested himself in on his recent visit.

He’d not close Al Whatever mosque unless he was sure of support and given Obama’s view on him, telegraphed gutlessly through his minions – I think chickens*** was the term used – then someone else gave him carte blanche.  As we’re now in the metaphysical region with all this, one has to look at the people in charge in the U.S.…

Kobane – the BS is thick upon the ground

rehanaAs someone dead against females being in the front line, for the very reason shown by ISIS capturing and beheading this girl, given their failure to meet the physical criteria [see ChristyO’s expose called GI Jane] plus the special social difficulties with the mix, let alone the logistics and not forgetting the PC politics behind sending these girls to their deaths for no good reason, nothing I’ve seen, including reports on the Israeli army, alters that view in the least.

There are only two reasons to put females in the front line – one, if the army starts running out of males and two, this special situation of the Muslims believing a man misses out on the 72 virgins if he’s killed by a female.

Or if this girl really did lose both parents to ISIS.…

The masters of discrimination strike again

Yesterday there was the Private Eye cover which made no bones about its bias against one particular party.

Wiggia points out:

The front page was not the worst go at UKIP in that issue.  All political parties are fair game but PE seems to be setting a new low standard where UKIP are concerned.  In the same issue, despite a letter criticizing a previous anti UKIP cartoon as being base, this issue has one all about turds, referring to UKIP.

This has caused comment elsewhere already, nothing to do with “can’t UKIP take it” as some have implied but an unwarranted approach that says much about how politics is viewed from within the bubble.

Cartoons were extremely nasty in the 19th century, but always with a factual basis, this one isn’t and it is not even funny.

Even so, as one commenter yesterday explained to readers, Private Eye is a private rag and that’s fair enough.…

The immigrant problem

B08wdkbCQAAHG1K

Everyone wants to know what the reality is but there are too many interested parties and outlets dedicated to ensuring you get a skewed picture and this is especially the case with Islam in the western nation.

The speech given by Geert Wilders [reproduced via Jerry Pournelle below] is certainly far right but I need to define far right before we go on.…

1000 Points of Light

This is what happens when you follow something through you ordinarily wouldn’t, plus you have a folder of files on the general area of Them.

Here was the pic on Twitter:

With a U.S. Senate election coming up, why should that concern us this side of the pond?  Well, I followed the link, noting in passing the words Points of Light, a trigger to  my mind but we’ll come to that.…

What floats our boats

Before consigning this to the PC dustbin, I think I was once in a position to judge.

Yes! Oui! Si! Learning a new language activates the same part of the brain as SEX

  • People who learn new words trigger the brain’s ventral striatum

  • Region also lights up during sex, gambling or eating chocolate

  • There may be an emotional connection in learning new words

  • Results could be used to help treat people with learning difficulties

Reason I think there might be something to it first requires the removal of ego from the equation and the way males always try to make out they’re studs.

I’m not, I’ve never been and so the pickings have been lean, though there’ve been a few over the years, like most men.  So I’ve no illusions about how attractive a middle-aged man is to a young lady.  Not.

Now the young ladies.  Those in Russia are much freer from the feminist constipation and whiny-moaniness, they’re much freer spirits and emote more freely.…

Fancy some 1842 beer?

El Reg has some good ones from the animal world:

Meanwhile, in galaxy not all that far away:

A young mother faces jail for conning friends and strangers out of thousands of pounds by falsely claiming she had terminal cancer, after dramatically changing her plea to guilty on the first day of her trial.

Police said Danielle Watson “acted in a cold and calculated manner” by appealing for donations, goods and services for her wedding, after announcing in January 2012 that she had late-stage cervical cancer with only a 15 to 20 per cent chance of survival.

Yet another example of the new Gen Y. The key words, the ones to keep in the back of your mind, should you fall into their clutches, are: “acted in a cold and calculated manner”.…
