O, We Mighty Masters Of Nature!

~ ITEM: Volcano’s reputation getting hotter

~ ITEM: Good and bad news about new Iceland volcano eruption

~ ITEM: Does God Hate Iceland?

~ ITEM: Cap All Volcanoes – Save the Planet!

~ IT WAS A TIRED old circus, and the most excitement to be had was when Char-LOTTE The Wonder Elephant™ paused a kiddy-ride for a prodigious release of her bowels. Truly elephantine waterfalls and avalanche ensued.

Famous modern circuses– like the old Roman animal spectaculars– were all about showing the domination of man over nature. Dancing animals, tamed tigers, lions through hoops, all the rest: unsinkable ships.. the march of progress.. the bright sunshine of the future and all that– man has conquered!

Except we haven’t: ask Siegfried & Roy.

Kaboom. Urp.

Or ask the people of Europe right now.

The eruption of a volcano is a regular event, most often in ‘foreign’ places, or Hawaii or something. But Europe has Iceland (a bit of the spreading mid-Atlantic ridge above the waves), plus volcanoes in Italy & Greece and elsewhere, and the remnants of extinct or dormant ones all over the place.

A Living Planet

Our planet is alive and active because it is in motion and has volcanoes, giving us water and an atmosphere and good soils. As recently as 70 000 years ago, a super-volcano nearly wiped out humanity, plus countless species.

Our mighty civilization is a fragile thing. If the super-volcano under Yellowstone park blew up, North America would be blown back into the 1700s, and a world-wide freeze would kill billions. If the macrosphere is so powerful and unpredictable, how dare social engineers tamper with humans with unknown consequences, or geneticists tamper with DNA and human and animal nature, with unforeseeable results in the short and long term?

Prometheus Redux

Our mighty illusions and technological power, together with our moral blindness, means that we can do things which perhaps we should not do. Our power of making outstrips our wisdom.

The eruption of Eyjafjallajökull is a reminder of our smallness and fragility in the face of the forces of nature, let alone power of God, and the mysteries of human, animal, and material nature. Maybe the nature-raping hard capitalists and the nature-worshipping eco-freaks can also discover something from this: we’re just not that much into control.

Perhaps we can all learn a little humility from the unexpected ashes of a volcanic eruption. ~


Aiding & Abetting Mass-Murder

Canadian-born Pro-Communist Economist Lauchlin Currie

~ ITEM: Book– Mao: The Unknown Story

~ ITEM: Guess who’s back to help with Supreme Court pick? Staffer admitted communist Mao Zedong among ‘favourite political philosophers’

~ ITEM: Lauchlin Currie – Conservapedia; Google Results

~ ITEM: CIA– Venona: Soviet Espionage and The American Response 1939-1957

~ ITEM: Heroism, Modernism, and the Utopian Impulse

~ HE WAS BY all accounts a very bright man, born in rural Nova Scotia, a graduate of Harvard.. and an indirect aider and abettor of the death of 70 million people in China, Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia, and elsewhere.

In the 1940s, economist Lauchlin Currie (1902-1993) was– for a time– a high-ranking White House advisor to President Roosevelt on the China file. Later records also indicate that he was a staunch ‘friend’ of communist ideas and goals.

While never implicated as an actual Soviet spy (like the U.S. State Department’s Alger Hiss), Currie’s hard left-wing sympathies for the Chinese Communists meant that he deliberately derailed Chinese Nationalist leader Chiang Kai-shek’s request for a known and trusted U.S. diplomat to communicate Chinese needs and concerns directly with the American President. According to the decrypted Soviet spy messages named ‘VENONA’ released in the mid-90s, Currie was an unwitting but useful source of Soviet intelligence for KGB spy-networks in wartime America.

Hanging In The Balance

All this took place at a time when any final victory of the Russian-funded Mao and his rabble was far from certain, and when the purges and throwing away of human life was mostly confined to communist ranks. Currie strengthened Mao & Stalin’s position by weakening Chiang, at a time when American intervention would have made a real difference, and changed U.S. policy for the future.

Artist Gao Qiang, via The Christian Science Monitor

Sad to say, but this son of Nova Scotia therefore contributed fairly directly to a Nationalist defeat, and thus bears part responsibility for all that came after, not least 70 million Chinese deaths in peacetime under blood-soaked Mao and his cronies; lost lives of many Westerners and locals throughout SouthEast Asia, and all the misery from then until now in the lives of billions of people.

We cannot say all that was Lauchlin Currie’s direct intent, but by 1941 when he was supporting Chinese Communism, Stalin’s Purges & show-trials, the deliberate Ukrainian famines and prison camps and all the usual murderous commie crap were already on the historical record for those who were willing to see.

Bloody Progressivism

The full tale of those years is only now and slowly being told, and is completely ignored and rewritten by Leftard scholars and political soft-Marxists with us today. Why? All-powerful states and leftardism leads to tyrants and traitors and bloodshed and repression and endless lies. That looks bad on the current utopians who are still– despite the great Leftist failures of Nazism and Sovietism– making heaven on earth.

They constantly try to escape
From the darkness outside and within
By dreaming of systems so perfect that no one will need to be good.
But the man that is shall shadow
The man that pretends to be.

T. S. Eliot, “Choruses from ‘The Rock’” (1934)

Eliot is oft-quoted by elegiac conservatives, but writing this when he was, it is indeed partly about the death of the West under Hitler and Stalin:

Men have left GOD not for other gods, they say, but for no God;
and this has never happened before
That men both deny gods and worship gods, professing first Reason,
And then Money, and Power, and what they call Life, or Race, or Dialectic.

What have we to do but stand with empty hands and palms turned upwards in an age which advances progressively backwards?

Lauchlin Currie was such a ‘progressive’, upholding the godless and bloodthirsty, and contributing his part to the human abattoir and nightmare that is Communism in Asia even to this day.

Retirement & A Silk Pillow

Unlike Mao’s 70 million victims (and all others under Communism in Asia since 1976), Canadian-born Lauchlin Currie died at the ripe old age of 91 after working for the 1950s onward for the Columbian government. ~

The bodies of dead civilians lie among mangled bicycles near Beijing's Tiananmen Square early June 4, 1989. Tanks and soldiers stormed the area overnight, bringing a violent end to student demonstrations for democratic reform in China. (AP Photo)


Death By Political Correctness?

~ ITEM: A 19-year-old folk singer from Toronto has died after being attacked by two coyotes in Cape Breton Highlands National Park.. this story also has useful tips for surviving aggressive coyote encroachments

How Not To Become a Victim Like Taylor Mitchell

~ ITEM: Remembering Taylor

~ ITEM: JUST FYI– Wolf Attack!

~ YEARS AND YEARS AGO, WOLVES were made extinct in Nova Scotia. You know, the predators. They would eat livestock, attack pets, and people on an opportunistic basis. It’s what wild animals like them do. It’s why we prefer domesticated dogs to vicious or wild (i.e., more wolfish) canine pets.

Even before this, back in the matriarchal days of happy peaceful granola-eating cave-persons, humans were probably responsible for the death of the larger dire wolves, cave-bears, and other similar oversized eat-us-easily sort of critters. 20 of us could wipe out such beasts but less could not– now, in the West, you generally have to go hiking in wild places to get the thrill of being a possible lunch.

Welcome To Nova Scotia!

Until now.

Here in down-home Nova Scotia, dear old Wile E. Coyote (Canis latrans) is apparently cheerfully invading and the government is looking the other way at increased evidence of wolf-like behaviour: killing livestock, pets, threatening humans, and so on. Last fall, a bold pack took on a hiking Toronto folk-singer as she travelled alone in a provincial park. She died of her injuries.

They’re not cartoon animals who prefer road-runners; and they are not doggies: they are smallish wolves, and wild animals which hunt in packs.

What Is This, AD1000?

Fast forward to 8 months later, and our local schools are forbidding our kids and other local schools kids from eating outside. Because of the coyotes. In 2010. We can’t grab our pitchforks and torches and hide behind the town walls because.. well, we’re supposed to be a modern civilized society, and not the wilds of medieval Europe.

Worst of all, in a species-pattern, wild predators in urbanized areas means one thing: they are hungry, and getting used to the idea of hunting where we are. Successful predators will clear out their hunting range and thus overpopulate– stage two is those hungry animals looking for something other than their regular food-sources.

Canid Free For All

These animals are now roaming free across the province, into neighbourhoods and communities, and doing what predators and scavengers do. The difference now is that government is either hippy or pinch-penny or both, and doesn’t want to alarm people. Within a mile of the Binky Bunker, coyotes are cavorting unmolested.

Back in the day (mid-90s) there was a bounty on the beasts of $75 per, and so hunters hunted and the pelts rolled in, thus the threat diminished. They’re a new species here, and not welcome.

Aww.. Soft Fwuffy Widdle Poochies!

In our politically correct new millennium, we don’t wanna hurt teh poor widdle cwitters, and so they encroach, breed, threaten, and eat what they can. So far, that includes parts of a folk singer, pets, and livestock. How long before it’s another hiker, or senior, or kid out eating a snack in the corner of the playground at recess?

Remember: political correctness is the triumph of theory over reality. Political correctness is cruel, and it kills. These animals need bullets, not sympathy and kumbayah nor “It’s kinda expensive so we’ll deny the problem, and make sure GreenPeace and eco-celebrities don’t get on our butts with bad publicity.”

After all, if we truly care for animals, we’d protect their livestock prey, who if not killed outright will often require being put down after mauling injuries and attacks from coyotes.

Coyotes: The Solution

Negligence or deliberate ideological stupidity when it comes to nature just won’t work.. and if made to work, it won’t work very well. Safety now, and for the weakest people and domesticated animals first of all.

Coyotes in our region? Trap them, hunt them, shoot them. Shoot to kill. Shoot them all, when and where you find them. ~


Leftard Kneejerk Racism

The Biology Of Knee-Jerks

~ ITEM: Comment: The ‘N-Word’?

~ ITEM: DAWG Teh Racist? — “Is a “high-tech lynching” in progress?”

~ ITEM: Cross-burning victim’s car torched

~ ITEM: Pardon and apology: Poetic justice for Desmond

~ TO SOME EXTENT OR OTHER, we’re all prejudiced. It means that we prejudge people, ideas, tastes, all sorts of things. Endlessly open opinions are worse than no opinion at all. I freely confess to being a Christianist Scotophile.. and so what, exactly?

Now, I’m not sure if the commenter ‘Rasta’ is American or not, but it would seem that he or she has had an American-style civil rights edumacation, where It’s All About The Racism. OK.. one more time.

Americans– and the imported curricula to Canucki schools that regurgitate the MLK-Rosa Parks stuff, but ignore our own Canadian history– must remember that the famous Underground Railroad went to.. wait for it.. Canada. Because slavery wasn’t a big institution here, and most blacks were free. We didn’t ruin black families for generations with Great Society spend-o-ramas to vote-buy like the U.S. Democrats– heck, much of our black population is actually Caribbean, or descendants of Loyalist escapees.

Enter Raging Commie Girl

So NDipper Ellen Ocran (her parents apparently being recent immigrants from Africa, not part of U.S. or Canadian rights wars) is being criticized in Canada as a crypto-communist, and a rabble-member who was part of infringing the freedom of Ann Coulter to speak, and of the public to hear Miss Coulter at UZero in Ottawa. Boo frickin hoo.

Did anybody force this woman to show up and take part? Did she not clearly relish the role, and make herself prominent in the pictures of the disturbance?

Good for her– except she was being a petty tyrant, and a politically correct bully, and a showboat, and she’s responsible for her actions, and is not free from her due dose of criticism because she’s a chick, or because she’s dark-skinned.

Ann Coulter Is An What-Now?

And yes, Ann Coulter is a media hound, and the ‘riot’ not so much, but the woman has been physically attacked at speeches & death-threated enough by Leftards that she’s allowed to be cautious. The student protesters did her a great favour in the end, not missing this opportunity to miss an opportunity.

Quit Yer Bitching

Unless Ellen Ocran prefers the shining political freedoms and peace of Ghana versus conditions here in Canada, perhaps she should show a little grace and gratitude to her adopted land, instead of her apparent contempt for our general patience, good nature, and love of freedom. Speaking as a first generation Canadian on one side, and the descendant of Scots immigrants and Loyalist refugees on the other, I know my family is grateful for living here.

As a side-note, for the race-card players out there, black Ghana was actually a slave-exporting nation back in the day, enriching local blacks as well as the British slavers. Even as that was going on, along with American abolitionists, many British North Americans (Canadians) helped thousands of people to return to Africa to found the nation of Liberia.. quite a story. And slavery in 2010 is alive and well around the world, not least in Muslim countries.

Finally & In Conclusion

Mind you, Miss Ocran is herself a product of a politically correct racist edumacational system that emphasizes difference, grievance, white guilt and the general suckitude of Western Civilization, (a kind of anti-missionary gospel, if you will), so it’s hardly a surprise she works for the crybaby NDiaPer Party, considers herself a communist, and is so comfy with the hyper-Leftist attitude and Trudeaupian environment at UHoule. Or that she tried to ‘silence’ her political and ideological enemies.

So grow up and stuff the cheap race-baiting, Rasta & Dawg, and deal with the messy real world. Miss Ocran can take her lumps like a free and proud Canadian of whatever colour, religion, or political view– just like the rest of us have to do.

Stick that in your “N-Word”and smoke it. ~

P.S. If Miss Ocran wishes to comment and/ or respond, I will certainly post it online, verbatim.

P.P.S. If Rasta is worked up because of the picture, (a) that was made by a different blogger, and (b) for a time, Miss Ocran was proudly displaying it as her FaceBook profile picture.


Communist Plotz: Red Churches

Very Useful Idiot & Anglican Archbishop "Red" Ted Scott

~ ITEM: World Council of Churches: The KGB Connection

~ ITEM: Google– World Council of Churches communist kgb

~ ITEM: Rewind– Teh Binks on Anglican “Red” Ted Scott

~ “REDS UNDER THE BED” is a clever Marxist-invented mockery of Communist-hunting and paranoia. Thing is, there were Reds throughout the West in World War II & the Cold War, stealing state, nuclear & military technology, military, diplomatic, and political secrets. Even better, through subtle influence, academics, intellectuals (Stalin’s ‘useful idiots’, and even national policies could be bent to Soviet imperial ends.

Sad to say, not a few naive Christians were useful idiots during the Cold War: so-called ‘ecumenical’ or Left-wing Church groups in particular, such as national and International councils of churches. During the 1970s, Trudeaupian ‘Red Ted” Scott, Primate of the Canadian Anglican Church was Moderator of the KGB-infiltrated World Council of Churches, even as that group publicly supported and funnelled monies to Soviet-backed ‘liberation movements’ and adventurism in various locales.

We Confess?

Tragic to say, there has never been a full accounting, or reportage– let alone an apology– for mainline denominational support of such inhuman and godless evil on a world-wide scale. Indeed, many churches are still infected with the Marxist virus, and the mutating utopian virus.

A hundred million dead under various Communist regimes; billions suffering; hundreds of thousands of martyred bishops, priests, nuns & monks– with persecution ongoing in Communist nations to this moment– and Western Liberal churches have never ‘made it right’. Par for the course with the utopian re-writers and deniers, but an unhealed wound in the Body of Christ, and a living lie in modern history and the life of the church.

Old Red Ted was a genial man, by all accounts, and so what, exactly? He was also a social and political and moral revolutionary, and some of his activities gave aid and comfort to the enemies of God and Western civilization. Under his watch, the Anglican Church of Canada was radicalized and began her ongoing death-spiral.

Still With Us

That’s not a ‘Past’ past. Many others like him are still with us, working away at utopia, and the death of Christianity and all non-Marxist religion… and many from inside churches which have and should know better.

Let’s just call them what they are: wreckers. Useful idiots. Traitors unto God and good things. ~


Mo’ Perfecter Than You!!

~ ITEM: Muslim school ‘unlawful’ for giving priority to Sunni pupils over Shias; Death threats for Saudi woman who blasts Muslim clerics on live TV; Islamic social worker ‘told Muslim mother to move to Bangladesh or lose children to Christianity’; Islamic TV show ‘backed marital rape’ and promotes extremist groups, claims Muslim think tank

~ ALLEGEDLY PERFECTIONED– Here at FMS & Canucki Jihad, we get all sorts of snippy notes– and a few death-threats– from members of The Perfect Religion™. You know, the perfect religion of the perfect prophet and all that. Best ever– really.

By contrast, Christianity has a perfect Lord, but an imperfect life in this world, due to sin, and finity. All are sinners, and have fallen short of the glory of God. Even Apostles, Fathers, clergy, and ordinary folks in the pew.

By contrast, every tin-pot Imam on YouTube, every e-mailing snit-monger and local terror-sympathizing sharia-zoner seem to consider themselves and infallible sinless expert on Allah’s infallible and immediate will known to them. Why? Only hell-bound infidels unenlightened by the perfect religion make mistakes, or sin, or can be terribly terribly wrong.

Except when they are. War. Hate. Tribal stupid. Brutal jihad. Narrow-mindedness. Misogyny. Religious intolerance. Casual sodomy. Racism. Slavery. Anti-semitism. Inter-sectarian hatred & violence. Contradictory interpretations of the perfect word of Allah. The whole “beheading’ thing.

Fun With Reality

The actual non-Koran Jesus (you know, of the Gospels written 550 years before Big Mo’) took on this sort of “Damn, I’m Good!” smug and nasty believer in a parable: The Pharisee and the Publican.

“To some who were confident of their own righteousness and looked down on everybody else, Jesus told this parable: “Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee stood up and prayed about himself: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other men—robbers, evildoers, adulterers—or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get.’ But the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even look up to heaven, but beat his breast and said, ‘God, have mercy on me, a sinner.’ I tell you that this man, rather than the other, went home justified before God. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.” [ Luke 18:9-14 ]

The contrast also stands between Mo’ and Jesus– Mo’ started making all sorts of special rules for himself and his minions on plunder, breaking treaties, lotsa wenches, Jew-slaughtering, and rewriting other people’s religions. Jesus came, and said that he was fulfilling & completing the Law & the Prophets; that his death and resurrection was eternal salvation for his friends.

Christ was indeed the promised Son of Man, the Messiah, God’s Son in the Flesh– but he claimed no special rules, treatment, armies, wenches, plunder. Indeed, at the last Supper Jesus knelt and washed his disciples’ feet as a servant would. And died the death of an outcast and a criminal, drinking the cup of sin and death to the dregs for all of lost humanity.

Can you tell the difference? Even atheist Richard Dawkins can:

“There are no Christians, as far as I know, blowing up buildings. I am not aware of any Christian suicide bombers. I am not aware of any major Christian denomination that believes the penalty for apostasy is death. I have mixed feelings about the decline of Christianity, in so far as Christianity might be a bulwark against something worse.”

The only thing between the machetes and our necks in the West.. is Christianity. ~

Volcanic Fun, via NS Scott

Airlines are blaming EU authorities for making such a mess of air traffic in recent days. The International Air Transport Association, which represents 240 of the world’s largest airlines, criticized the European Union for its blanket restrictions on flights across Europe since last week’s volcanic eruption.

Proving itself blind to irony, the EU today announces a new initiative that promises to boost air travel: “The European Union has declared travelling a human right, and is launching a scheme to subsidize vacations with taxpayers’ dollars for those too poor to afford their own trips.

    Theism :

    DEUTERONOMY 28:53

    The belief that your imaginary friend wants you to eat babies.

    • binky  On May 1, 2010 at 11:01 am

      Dear Kristen:

      First of all, we’re not talking about theism (the mere belief in a deity), but Judaism.

      Secondly, the language in that verse is about what happens during long and horrible sieges: cannibalism ensues. The “thou shalt” is not a commandment as in Exodus 20, but “you will”. Read it in any one of a hundred modern translations.

      Deuteronomy 28:53-57 (New International Version)

      53 Because of the suffering that your enemy will inflict on you during the siege, you will eat the fruit of the womb, the flesh of the sons and daughters the LORD your God has given you. 54 Even the most gentle and sensitive man among you will have no compassion on his own brother or the wife he loves or his surviving children, 55 and he will not give to one of them any of the flesh of his children that he is eating. It will be all he has left because of the suffering your enemy will inflict on you during the siege of all your cities. 56 The most gentle and sensitive woman among you—so sensitive and gentle that she would not venture to touch the ground with the sole of her foot—will begrudge the husband she loves and her own son or daughter 57 the afterbirth from her womb and the children she bears. For she intends to eat them secretly during the siege and in the distress that your enemy will inflict on you in your cities.”

      Think of any horrible old-style siege (or 20th century communist-induced famine) and the same thing happens.

      If you read the whole chapter, God is teaching his people the consequences of obedience and disobedience. As disobedient children of the blood-soaked 20th century, we should get it.

      Yours respectfully,

      Binks
