Social re-engineering by swamping populations

Before we even start, let’s deal with these weasel words “conspiracy theory”.  A CoTh is a fantastical idea which as yet has little or no hard corroboration.

But what do you call the CoTh which I and other pundits have been touting since 2006 that govts are and have for a century been colluding to bring about a dissolution of the nation state and socially re-engineer the west?  Wild idea, yes?  I was accused of tinfoil hattery by all the conservative ‘I don’t do conspiracy theory’ Colonel Straights. The term ‘whackjob’ was also used. Nice, eh?

Then Cameron came to power and at that time, certain Labour figures agreed that that’s what they had been doing. Now, today, we see it happening at full pace in Europe, we see the no-go areas in Sweden and other places and there’s all the rest of it.

We have been quoting this sort of thing for a decade:… More here ...

Can Ms Markle cut the mustard?

A reader of Max Hastings from Paris, called Madame Josephine, showed the ambivalence of so many, including myself, about Ms Meghan Markle, an ambivalence now seemingly drawing to a close.

For almost a year now since I discovered her name, her face and her existence, I couldn’t make up my mind about Sparkle Markle and decide whether I liked her or not. I was trying to be objective and I recognised she had undeniable qualities and there were many positive things in her life story.

Peter’s vision

Churchmouse is an interesting character. Clearly of the Church, he appears to be that older style of prelate [I actually don’t know the precise details] who knows his stuff, unlike, say, Welby.

This is one of his regular series:

… and I found it interesting that he should mention Peter’s vision:

Acts 10:9-16
Peter’s Vision

9 The next day, as they were on their journey and approaching the city, Peter went up on the housetop about the sixth hour[a] to pray. 10 And he became hungry and wanted something to eat, but while they were preparing it, he fell into a trance 11 and saw the heavens opened and something like a great sheet descending, being let down by its four corners upon the earth. 12 In it were all kinds of animals and reptiles and birds of the air. 13 And there came a voice to him: “Rise, Peter; kill and eat.” 14 But Peter said, “By no means, Lord; for I have never eaten anything that is common or unclean.” 15 And the voice came to him again a second time, “What God has made clean, do not call common.” 16 This happened three times, and the thing was taken up at once to heaven.

Touched by an angel?

Courtesy Gordon (motoring journalist):

I had one just before 06:00 today. It was still dark and I was out driving the MX-5 RF (Miata) with the lights on high beam and automatic dipping. Just into the second to last bend before Nottingham Road, on the Midlands Meander route, and almost at the Bierfassl, I saw headlights and emergency flashers of a truck in the opposite lane.

No need to panic, I thought, but then I noticed that it was completely dark on my side of the road. No lights on in ye olde country inn.

Little voice said BRAKE (in big block capitals just like that). So I did, quite hard and with a touch of left-hand Body English just in case.

A split second later, the auto highbeams kicked in to reveal a mechanical horse and two articulated trailers; one completely across my lane and the second still exiting the driveway of the hotel.… More here ...

The significance of September 3rd

Mike Cunningham wrote, at OoL:

Today, September 3rd, is the 77th time those of us who were both alive and able to comprehend, on that fateful day shall remember those steady, if at times somewhat halting tones, as His Majesty King George the Sixth began the speech which informed the Nation that we, the British, had informed the German Reich that they would not be allowed to run riot as they wished, and the British government, on our behalf, had declared War against the Nazis in Berlin.

He contrasts that with our current situation

But the simple truth … is that our own politicians, our own neutered police, our own so-called Elite, who pull the strings of Government from behind the curtains, deny that we are at war with this Radical Islamic Muslim Terror.

Let’s put some numbers on this – the various layers of government officialdom who pass the laws – what, 3% of the population perhaps?… More here ...
