John Derbyshire (close up)

“The drift of our own political culture seems to be confirming the Founders’ intuition that representative government can only work in a population possessed of some minimum level of virtue—thrift, restraint, industriousness, stoicism in the face of misfortune, willingness to defer gratification, and concern for the common good.”

That’s What They Say

apology-notepad

~ WHOEVER THEY™ ARE, They say that it’s always bad to start off with an apology– so I didn’t– I started with this statement.

I must apologize for the recent & relative lack of braining with essays– I’ve been very busy with family stuff, life in general, and braining takes a lot more energy than I currently have. Thus, some essays are observational crap; others vaguer repeats of older essays, and only a few I’m glad to put online.

Derping The Derpy-Derp

For instance, this morning as I’m trying to blodge, I have no notions. None. Sometimes they come from links, books read, movies watched, pattern recognition & discernment of the reality behind the news or matters of the day, and eternity. Wait.. brain is coming online.. MOAR COFFEE!

That is how the Woolwich Beheader, and the recent Canadian terror-plotter feel. The daily screech from each mosque– “There Is No God But Allah” is not merely a religious statement, but a profoundly political one which affects every aspect of a true Muslim’s life: “There is No God But Allah.. and Sharia is His law”. Islam teaches that the Koran is written directly by Allah; sharia is based on God’s word, and so is divine law.

BILINGUALISM KILLS!

Trudeapian mandate fails desperate Shafia girls

~ ITEM: Shafia case was affected by English-French snafu: youth protection officials

“When the Shafia girls went looking for help from youth-protection officials three years ago, their case was hampered by a uniquely Canadian bureaucratic snafu. Some of their pleas were lost in translation. Or, more precisely, their different complaints were handled by separate English- and French-language agencies that failed to share case information.”

~ ITEM: Death and dishonour: Shafia murders the latest sad chapter in war on Muslim women; Shafia girls needed a voice before they died, not after

~ ITEM: “Honor Killing” is Absolutely Islamic!, by Syed Kamran Mirza

Ezra Levant Rips Political Correctness
& CBC”s Coverage Of The Shafia Honour Killing

~ ASIDE FROM THAT & THE POLITICALLY CORRECT droning that all cultures & their practices are equally good, does Modern free-for-all youth culture fail immigrants and their children?

Our sometimes anarchic manners and morals, restless materialism, and absolute insistance on being ‘free, free, free’ would shame most of our own forebearers, let alone a newcomer from the cultural & religious 10th century. It’s a rarefied environment.

The moral and religious tide of Western societies go in and out.. and the results can be alarming to those who belong to the older tradition. Mind you, for Judaeo-Christianity, ‘getting back to basics’ comes via moral renewal, individual transformation, spiritual awakening, mass movements and accompanying political actions. For a Muslim immigrant ‘getting back to the basics’ means Koran, Jihad, Sharia, and the dirty family secret (as Muhammed taught) of murdering your kids/ family if they are tempted away from the faith– whether that’s by the spiritual rebirth of Christianity, or the siren-song of materialism, moral relativism, and dressing/ acting like a party girl.

Our Unintended Consequences

The simple fact is that no man– or society– is an Island. We can all think of people and ways of life to admire and inspire– and the opposite is true. For us to pretend that preventing and/ or ditching our unborn and replacing them with immigrants– some of whom will be profoundly confused and dislocated by what seems to us a normal way of life, is to misrepresent ourselves to them, and to pretend that our accumulated actions and choices make no difference, and our current way of life is perfect and everybody should immediatley like & understand it. That’s a form of Leftist self-congratulation, just like exporting Feminism, the pill, and busy-body NGOs to go and bring the new progressive way to the heathen darkies.

What is brightest and best in us is not merely sexual and moral “freedom”, but our first things– love of truth, of law and fairness, of justice, our art and higher culture, literature and music and so very much more. The Christians transformed Rome and Greece not because they cheered on paganism, but because they replaced the enticements of mere power and pleasure with a higher love found in Christ, the Son of God, and thus drawing attention away from all that degraded, exploited, or ruined souls.

Higher, Better, More Gooder

St. Paul put it clearly to the Christians in Philippi:

“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” [ Php. 4:8 ]

You can’t replace something with nothing. Asking immigrants to replace their spiritual lives with a secular vacuum doesn’t work.. or it works for a generation or so until folks start looking for roots & traditions.

We have hidden our Western glories under commercialism, an ever more crass pop culture, and a profound loss of confidence and understanding about who we are, and why. Immigrants come, take the oaths, and find us mumblers, afraid to speak truth and goodness, or to challenge their home-cultures in any way. Ghetto arise of like-minded folks, where the old ways live on, for lack of anything better. Child-marriage, concubinage, honour killings? That’s good old-fashioned Muhammedanism.. at least it stands for something, however evil or wrong-headed.

Apportioning Blame

Mr. Shafia failed his family. Mohammed & the sick cultures he helped bring into birth are partly to blame. But these girls died because of our way of life too, as in Bilingualism, government failure, a hands-off policy towards newcomers, and (perhaps) the idea that party-girlism is the way to be– as represented in youth culture and on TV. ~


Binky Opting Out of “Non-Opt-Out” Google

~ ITEM: Google announces privacy changes across products; Users can’t opt out; Google stirs up privacy hornet’s nest

~ ITEM: Twitter Censorship And The Future Of Authoritarianism In A High-Tech World

~ ITEM: U.S falls to 47th in press freedom rankings after Occupy crackdown

~ AS NOTED CULTURAL philosopher Uncle Ben Parker put it, “With great power comes great responsibility.” GoogleCorp likes the former, not the latter.

In an evil move that must concern freespeechers, privacy activists, and anybody who doesn’t like powerful software & websites all up in their bizniss, Google is going to mind your online activities via their sites, and you have no privacy-opt-out choice. GoogleCorp had already slid this modus operandi under the radar with their popular Chrome Browser, assinging individual IDs to users, and recording their online activity. Now, the Google search-engine, Youtube, GMail, AdWords, and the many-tentacled mass of other Google products and sites will all be collecting data on you, personally. Via ComputerWorld:

“What has the blogosphere and some users in an uproar is that Google isn’t offering users an opt-out option. If you don’t want your information from Gmail, YouTube and Google searches combined into one personal data store that can paint a detailed picture of you, the only option is to stop using Google’s services.”

It all starts March 1st.

Already Evilling

GoogleCorp is a corporation with inappropriate & cosy ties to the radical Obama administration; it has in the past helped with the Great Firewall of China (blocking traffic & content into & out of China); Google Earth data-catching was sweeping up passwords, private info, and illegal content; Google Corp has also been fined $500 million by the U.S. Government for criminal activity connected with the online drug market. That is, despite the founders’ motto “Don’t Be Evil”, the temptations of money, political power, and collaboration with repressive regimes has been a sweet, sweet opportunity for evil.

Now, it’s ‘No Opt Out’. Well, if you want to use their products, that is. All freedom-loving Netizens should respond by refusing to use Google (except via anonymizer websites like Scroogle), cancel Gmail (I’m moving over to Yahoo), use SRWare’s spyware-free Chrome-copy Iron browser instead of Chrome (yes, it supports Angry Birds), use Bing or any other engine for searches, and off-dump any browser or desktop-intrusive Google products for free substitutes available everywhere online. And yes, the snooping also includes the new Google+.

But Binky!, You Say

“But Binky,” you say, “you’re an international elf of mystery– we’re just using FaceBook and GMail and sending e-mails and browsing Amazon and eBay and kitten-picture sites. What’s the big?”

The big? One company not only wants to be your gateway to the web, but install itself all over your computer– and watch you. And that’s only what we know about, or what GoogleCorp haven’t been charged and convicted and fined for. Power used irresponsibly is a great evil, but even greater is the indifference to such evils, whether here or abroad. Like Van Rompuy the unelected Obergruppenfuhrer of the EU, or rogue-POTUS Mr. Teleprompter in the U.S., such absolute power is not a tool for freedom, or due process, nor does “trust us, we’re the good guys” relieve us of vigilance and responsibility for our generation, and generations to come.

In some Anglican parishes, I sometimes met old conservative folks who loved the non-radicalized Bok of Common Prayer, but who missed the point when they said “I just want it around long enough to get my funeral properly done.” Hmm. ‘Well, thanks’, I thought to myself, ‘and too darned bad for the rest of us, is it?’

Muzzling The World

Google or SOPA & PIPA or the even worse international ACTA treaty are part of the wars by national and world establishments not just to curb alleged ‘piracy’ (we need digital content licenses, NOW), but to curb the very unpredictable, fast, and democracy-enabling flow of ideas, information, commentary, and activism (the good sort) which the web enabled in the mid-1990s.

Slaving the web? “Put the genie back in the bottle, he’s messing up our masterplans and skewing the official narrative.” Don’t confuse our would-be masters with the facts.

Imagine if something like the internet had been around in the 1930s. No Hitler. Imagine what Obama or the EUcracy would be like if ther were no internet today– or one that only gave us games, advertisments, and highly santitized pre-web-style network “news” tidbits, with little right of swift fact-checking fisk-making responds and the rest of the story?

GoogleCorp stands over the digital world like Big Brother, and should toatalitarian times arrive, they’ve already cheerfully cooperated with repression and web-crippling in the past. What’s to stop them from going 1984 all over us and the world? Little or next to nothing, if everybody just shrugs.

Replacing GoogleCorp

Don’t use the GOOGLE search engine directly. Use Scroogle. Or Bing.com. Try anonymized search-engines.

Don’t use Chrome– use the free Firefox or SRWare Iron if you like Chrome features & functionality, but don’t want Google watching you. It even has an anonymous surf mode.

Uninstall all the Google desktop ‘Freeware’, and find online alternatives.

Get rid of Gmail, unless only for innocuous stuff, and use Yahoo, or onboard MS-Outlook, or FireFox/ Thunderbird e-mail clients on your computer. Online mail is easy, but it’s very hackable, and in the case of Google after March 1st, very trackable and snoopable.

ITYS, Folks

The new Google No Opt-Out policy? Take back your freedom, and opt-out from Google like Binks is doing.

The future depends on it. ~


Stupid Old Obama? Whoa There!

~ ITEM: Google- 2008 voter regret

~ ITEM: Obama in Foreign Policy Hell

~ AFTER HE’S GONE, and the Dems finally start blaming him for stuff, Obama’s toxic legacy will live on. So will that of his voters, and enablers, apologists, and political cronies.

Obama is a kind of cipher, an untalented political hack and opportunist serving the agendae of anybody who can pay him or push him. He bears repsonsibility, but should not serve as a handy scapegoat for all the other players in the current very ugly American politico-economic sideshow.

Taking Names

Democrats? Yes, he’s yours. OK, so Soros, the Clintons, and others radicalized your party– you went socialist with them, and American political and social radicals pulled you into the big intoxicating campaign, unlocking the keys to power and loot. Sweet, sweet ambrosia– and you screwed over your own Party principles, and helped sell America down the river.

All you rich foundations and illegal donors and Sorosiac busy-bodies: America has become your experimental rat-cage. Real people are suffering, the real world economy is choking, the chance for chaos and triple, quadruple and quintuple dip recessions may become a new way of life. What’s that? You thought the free-money flow would fund the socialism, just like it did in Europe? Duh. America funded post-war European social statism– nanny got the loot, whilst Europe didn’t pay for military defence.

Who Pays Now?

Who pays now? What? Exactly.

This turkey-POTUS is a fail in every way: at home, abroad, geopolitically, economically, and even in terms of his own promises and policies. He has succeeded in adding 5 trillion to the debt; shutting down Main Street and cooling investment & expansion in corporate America. The vultures of Wall Street are glutted with stimulus and pay-offs, but the economy and markets are not strong for all that.

Hey, progressives: too bad your ‘Occutard’ movement is so full of stoners, nitwits, cowards, diaper-wearers and incompetents– hardly the unstoppable cadres of the Bolshevik revolution overthrowing the old regime, despite all the backing from the White House & Soros-machine. How will Obama get to further subvert the political process now? By main force, if at all.

One More Slap

Most of all to blame?– all you voters. He. Is. Your. Fault. You drank the Kool-Aid, swallowed the codswallop, believed the fumes and illusions– even though part of you knew bloody well that it was for show, and impossible. Hope & Change: I hope you will never vote for Obama again.

Yes, the Republicans deserve plenty of blame, but it is unlikely that anybody could have taken Obama in 2008. Not so now– don’t muff it up. ~


Fraud: How Radicals Work

“One of the most ubiquitous tactics of the Global Muslim Brotherhood is the establishment of a dizzying number of organizations and initiatives and which create the impression of broad based support when, in reality, the sponsors are the same individuals and groups whose leaders have not changed in many year.”

~ ITEM: U.K. Muslim Brotherhood Forms Yet Another Coalition; Latest Effort To Investigate U.K. Media

~ ITEM: A Communist front organization

~ ITEM: Ezra Levant exposes b.s. at Northern Gateway hearings; is banned

~ ITEM: Welcome to Discover the Networks. This website describes the networks and agendas of the political Left

~ OK, SO YOU got a Cause– You find seed money (sources depending on if you’re a Prog or a Jihadi), an office, website, small staff, and a name.Out go offers for interviews, press releases, and PR. You act as if you represent your community, or a wide base of concerned persons. You achieve legitimacy, since in normal situations, only legitimate causes get groups going– the rest of us write irate letters to politicians or newspapers.

Like-minded folks set up three or four or twenty more copy-groups. All of a sudden, you have all sorts of apparent ‘political push’.

In the case of the Muslim Brotherhood, you get people to start up CAIR, ISNA, MSA, and an alphabet-soup of loosely related groups all pushing in the same direction, with various degrees of friendly or political correctness or victim-spin.

Or in the case of U.S.-funded Eco-groups in Canada pushing against national oil policy, you do the same, and clog up the legitimate process because you think oil is evil and the “Tar Sands” are Mordor, and even pumping oil-money to dictatorships and theocracies is better than that.

Faking It Bigtime

This faux-loading is a way of subverting the democratic process– the Soviet Communists operating worldwide taught us all about how to create such front-groups (or do a take-over of existing groups), and inflate a false political perception of a mass-movement concealing subversive reality.

That, of course, is why David Horowitz’s highly irritating site Discover The Networks got so many Leftist people so mad so fast when it debuted in the U.S.– as a former radical, Horowitz knew the game, the usual suspects, and how it all connected.

Once you know the scam, it’s easy to spot. That’s what the radicals of all stripes hate.

Edumacationing

It’s much harder to get the populace and political class to see and recognize such fraud, and to boil down such groups as over-inflated unrepresentative ideological prybars for breaking other people’s stuff. If it ain’t fixed, break it.

This modus operandi has spread since the 1930s, and took on it’s own after the radicalizing 1960s. A handful of radicals can have an exponentially disproportionate influence on society, its’ insitutions, and on whole societies and nations.

It’s otherwise called hijacking. ~


On Cuddling The Ugly

~ ITEM: HATING WHOLESOMENESS– Exclusive: Patrice Lewis reports on grandmas who try to corrupt homeschooled grandkids

~ MUCH OF WHAT PASSES FOR modern culture is a rancid stew. And lots of us paddle in it. Nudity, horrific violence, glorified or cuddlified evil or depravity.. a gentle road down into being entertained by sewage.

The other day, The Binklings wanted to watch the series Dexter on NetFlix. It’s about a forensic blood-spatter analyst who is also a mass-murdering vigilante. See, he’s doing good! By being evil! Ooh, so complicated and tasty and– entertaining?

Quote, Unquote

Sorry, guys– mass-murdering and vigilantism is illegal and morally evil. True Blood? Vampires are evil. Glee? Gay-bullies High School, without reality or consequences. The Tudors? Sexy & uglified faux-history. Patrice Lewis comments:

“… the primary characteristic of this hatred of wholesomeness is its irrationality. How can someone object to decency? Why do people obsess over the efforts of others to achieve a moral life? Critics will often descend into crass personal attacks in an effort to malign or belittle someone’s integrity. Admittedly, a moral lifestyle sets a standard to which many others fall short, but that behavior isn’t forced on anyone else. It’s a personal choice. Could it be that purity shines light into dark and uncomfortable corners?”

Watching such evil as entertainment? How did we get to this place?

Monkey See, Monkey Do?

Prime time profanity, partial nudity, the mocking of virtue, faith, fidelity, the glorification of mere depravity and unrestricted libertinism– the TV is less entertainment that a sewer, telling our kids how to live, what is supposedly admirable and what false freedom looks like.

All of this in the name of ‘tolerance’, harmless tittilation, and the degading of human culture to things that pollute your soul, help shred families and relationships, and make us hunger for more of the same.

Garbage in, garbage out. You can’t unsee video-evil, or pretend it has no effect on your thoughts, attitudes, and actions. If the Binklings decide to watch such things when they are older, that is within their adult freedom– but just because we can do something, doesn’t mean we should. We cancelled our cable a few months ago, because so much of what passes for popular fare is time-killing, ugly, or stupid.

Better Fare

If you like decent shows, then buy them online. Castle, NCIS, Chuck, Firefly, or even older and enduring TV classics. Yes life is ugly and often depraved– but there are two attitudes to respond to that fact. First, we can recall that truth, goodness, and morality exist, and recognize that all fall short of the standard, but that there is a right and wrong. Or second, we simply lower the bar, and say that all things, behaviours, beliefs are simply good and equal and kumbayah.

Are we good? Happy? Holy? What happens in Vegas decays inside you. ~


Halifaxistan?

~ ITEM: Halifax salon offers women-only day for Muslims; Vlad tepes weighs in

Tarek Fatah discusses the Burka

~ SO: SHOULD SALONS close their doors to offer Muslima-only service? The Multicults versus opponents fill the comments with mostly the usual comments.

A few things: (1) Muslim teaching that women are giant sexual organs, and less than men originates with Mohammed. This is not Canadian law, or tradition. Thus, the swimming or mosque or other segregations which Muslimas engage in according to homeland custom or a sense of Muslim modesty? Moe uber alles over Canadian laws. Sharia law supreme.

(2) Why not offer this service at a Mosque basement? Hairdressers go to various senior’s homes all the time to lovelify the ladies– if Christ had taught that women were walking vaginas, surely the churches would figure something out.

(3) That said, how do we support Muslimas get a less slavish mindset? The salon took the wrong approach in closing during regular businees hours– how about doing such treatments during off-hours? Or closing on Sundays?

(4) Special accomodationism & privileges lend themselves to sharia submissionism. Just because these women want their heair pretty doesn’t mean they aren’t also supremacists. Canada doesn’t have separation of church & state– it’s a Christian country, founded as such. thus, even our secularists assume a lot in common with Christianity and Western Civ, because that’s where laws & freedoms and individual dignity comes from.

We’ve Seen This Before, & Elsewheres

What next– making sure Jews and dogs and homosexuals are segregated from delicate Muslim sensibilities? No Christmas decoration or hymns & carols on the mall music? Silencing church-bells as offensive announcers of the resurrection, and infidel worship? It’s a long list.

You know, because throught the Muslim world non-Muslims are always catered to in every way and aspect of life.. oh, wait. ~


Dem Target Number One? A Black Guy

Allen West Wraps Up C.P.A.C. on Feb 12, 2011

~ ITEM: Allen West ‘not going to say no’ if asked to run for vice president

Allen West for Gingrich VP?

~ ITEM: Allen West To Obama, Reid, Pelosi, Wasserman Schultz: “Get The Hell Out Of The United States of America

~ ITEM: Allen West being redistricted out of existence in effort led by Romney Florida spokesman

~ I’VE BEEN WATCHING THE U.S. election (though not in fanatical detail), and note that new Congressman Allen West is Quite The Thing. Former military, principled, a balanced social and fiscal and small-government conservative, and– once he gets his political props under him– a real candidate for the 2016 Republican ticket.

He has no patience for the liberal press, the Muslim Brotherhood, or politics as usual. He seeks an American renewal. Time will tell if he has horrible character-flaws or ugly skeletons in the closet. So far, despite a lot of Dem/ Mainscream Press character assassination, nothing has emerged yet. If he’s not a faker, I would support him.

Given his words, the ever-trimming Republican Establishment in DC,–seeking to keep the lobbying and big-government and corrupt habits of the past in place, with a show-election every 4 years– may not like an apparently straight-thinking, straight-talking and hard-driving Allen West.

Choose Wisely

America is on a precipice: business as usual just won’t do; radical progressive revolution just won’t do; the establishment and/ or political messianism just won’t do.

Rumour has it that West is up for a possible Gingrich VP-slot, along with Marco Rubio and others.. if the Romney hit-squad doesn’t re-distribute his district out of existence, and thus kick him out of office. It may already be too late.

Dear U.S.A.: Choose wisely. ~


A Hard-Hitting Website

~ ITEM: DALROCK Thoughts from a happily married father on a post feminist world

~ ARE LOT OF WESTERN youth gone slutty and marriage-averse? Has feminizm & the laws thereof wreckified matrimony, betrayed and punished men, built the super nanny-state, and promoted female sluttery and male date-gaming as a result?

DalRock asks:

  • Why should men get married anymore, exactly? Why are so many women wondering ‘Where Are All The Men?’?
  • Why, exactly, ‘Women & Children First’ in an equalitarian society that punishes men for manliness and distinctiveness at every other turn?

Controversial Manosphere blogger Dalrock is asking these and many other questions, along with a number of other like bloggers. Warning: If you are in any way an ideological feminist who loves putting men in their place, these blogs may cause heeadache, heart-attack, or fatal blood vessel burstage in the brainpan.

A lot of western males are mad as hell, and just aren’t taking it any more. Thus the massive societal opt-out from college, husbandhood, and fatherhood. Are we aware? Do we care? ~

That is, when it comes to truth-claims (religion or science of politics) I ask hard questions, because evidence and info leads to thoughts leads to principles, and then to action.

One Theoretical Topic

Global Warmism has the status of an apocalyptic secular faith for many politicians, scientists, eco-activists, and members of the public.

  • WHAT– Is there actual global warming/ climate change? What sorts?
  • WHY?– What are the possible causes? End results?
  • THEREFORE– Can anything be done about it, or not?

How do we adjust our actions based on evidence, and properly peer-reviewed science? How do we integrate criticisms or alternate theories

What A Working Theory Is

Anthropogenic (human-caused) Global Warming (increase in the base temperature of the planet by degrees, due to increased amounts of atmospheric “pollutant” Carbon Dioxide) is a working theory some people have to explain observed climate change over the past few decades. Theories are working models based on evidence, and supported by models interpreting the data into a working theory of reality.

However, like the 1970s Ice Age Cometh scare, Global Warming– along with big-eco– have become centre-pieces of national and international policy, taxation, and societal change. This is often in spite of dissenting scientific theories by legitimate climate experts. Then the political games start, the politics of personal destruction, and the demonizing of those who dare question the new absolute scientific orthodoxy, and the vested interests promoting one theory over others. Plus the climate skeptics, whose doubts can take on the force of a final consensus.

You know, like medical experts “Knew” that excess acid and not bacterial infections caused peptic ulcers. Or any of these superseded theories which once ruled as the final word in their fields.

How I Roll

When I am pressured by government or eco-groups or the bandwagon-media to take one view of a phenomena like climate change, I smell a rat. Prove it. Account for discrepancies and contrary theories. Show me how the theory (and related proposed solutions) change to take account of new data. Don’t trash legitimate doubt, because to do so is bad science & ideology.

I like music, and bands. However, bandwagons are all well and good, but they are not necessarily right and good and true. Let the unrestricted debate be over theories, AND facts, however ‘inconvenient’.

Jumping To Conclusions

Further debt-burdening already cash-strapped and debt-ridden nations with expensive and/ or industry & economy killing taxes and requirements? Spending loads of taxes on inflammable electric cars, bird-killing wind-turbines, pricey solar energy schemes? Seems like a mix of good will and scammery, especially with untested new technology. To redirect science & technology in one direction, leading to the forbidding, say, of ye olde incandescent light-bulbs (and in favour of a polluting monopoly by a sleazy Military-Indistrial Complex corporation like General Electric?? Shutting down oil & gas exploration throughout the U.S. and offshore, and then saying we’re facing the end of oil?

You get the picture. Bad business, bad science, bad technology, bad politics– and a stupid and blind way to do things.

Chicken Littleism is a poor way to run a farm, let alone a planet. ~

On the other end of the Med, it was only the last-minute intervention and skill of Charlie “The Hammer” Martel which stemmed the Jihad-flood from taking France, Flanders and Northwards, Austria, Germany, and the opposite tide meeting them from across the Bosphorus into Central Europe. They did that for us, and for them.

A Response To War

The West began the Crusades as a response to Muslim cruelties and destruction–

“On October 18, 1009, Fatimid caliph Al-Hakim bi-Amr Allah, has the Church completely destroyed. It is believed that Al-Hakim “was aggrieved by the scale of the Easter pilgrimage to Jerusalem…. everything was razed ‘except those parts which were impossible to destroy or would have been too difficult to carry away’.” The Church’s foundations were hacked down to bedrock. The Edicule and the east and west walls and the roof of the cut-rock tomb it encased were destroyed or damaged (contemporary accounts vary), but the north and south walls were likely protected by rubble from further damage…”

Propheteering

~ITEM: After America: Get Ready for Armageddon by Mark Steyn

~ AN UPDATE– So the shiftless and feckless WebElf Binks keeps saying and wanting to get back to it full-bore. Still waiting, right? What a disappointment he are.

Thing is, health is a gift from God when you gots it, and a cross to bear when it’s a bit iffy. Constant pain is a wearisome companion, but an instructor, too. Saint Paul wrote:

For this thing, I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me. And He said unto me, “My grace is sufficient for thee, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Most gladly therefore will I glory rather in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. [ 2 Corinthians 12:7-10 ]

What’s that? The dusty old opiate-religion of bigots & gun-clingers has a purpose & help in it? Why ‘magine that.

When all the world has to offer is pain-meds and luxury Swiss self-murder clinics, some dead ex-Jew has wisdom that is greater than the world, a gift of the Living Lord Jesus, who is greater than sin & death and hell, and bears us all in himself. He says to those who bear long suffering– and the frequent burial of too many hopes and opportunities & talents– “My grace is sufficient for thee, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” 

Sniff, Slobber

Plus, I keep on because I love you all, try to love the truth, and feel a burning in my bones to speak up and speak out. Thanks to the new Tweet-subs: I’m trying to get back on the horse, and appreciate for your patience.

Freed Up Time

Had lots of time to read in the last while, including Mark Steyn’s finest & latest book, After America: Get Ready for Armageddon. Mark gets all Biblical– in the somewhat depressing mode of Jeremiah, or the widely ignored pagan Cassandra from The Iliad. Except with lots of wry humour.

Where in Biblical times the popular prophets– think CNN pundits or NPR/ CBC talking heads– toed the party line, told the powers that be and the sheeple what they wanted to hear, and what everyody was already saying and thinking anyway… Jerry? Not so much. Gets beaten up, thrown down a well, chased out of town.. the usual for non-false prophets.

It Burns!

The word of the Lord came to him– burned within him– and would not be silenced, even though speaking it made him unpopular with just about everybody in sight, the Temple punditocracy & clergy, the police, the royal family.

Mark has taken up something in the same spirit in After America– painting in clear and uncompromising tones where we are, and what may well lie ahead.. not way way off ahead, but in the next twenty years. Further, he doesn’t just point the finger at Obama, or the current international leadership, or Nanny Statism.

It’s us.

We’re largely over-comfy, lazy, crazy, politically correct, over-spending, careless of the consequences or the future of our actions. Obama and Co. are the symptoms of our disease.

Embrace Teh Stupid

If we go back in history, the first sack of Rome in AD410 was entirely avoidable. The rulers of the city, the faltering heart of a crumbling empire, refused to allow Alaric and his tribes to settle in the North, despite promises to the same. Despite broken promises and faithless dealings, Alaric kept coming back, asking for the same thing. Finally, after threats, warnings, and beseechings, the former Roman officer released his northern wolves to plunder Rome.

He Did Ask Nicely, First

Because of the duplicity, arrogance, and cluelessness of the rulers and people, that somehow Rome could never fall to– sniff– people of that sort, it fell hard. Reality bit them in the hindparts, but not after lots of warnings and chances to turn aside.

Mark’s book is not gloomy in tone, if in subject: Steyn has a razor-fine fine sense of the hilariously absurd, the insanity of our moment, the dance over the cliff that is 2011 and onwards. Rome in her lattermost days.. but with a witty prophet telling us to wisen up.

La La La, Can’t Hear You!

His prescription is one we already know, but want to ignore– growing up; to spend less & save more as families, chop up the credit cards & lines of credit and home equity self-plundering– and to stop overspending as nations, and a civilization; figuring out the point of life, and living it; making babies, and getting back to more human patterns of living & passing on traditions and civilization.

All this calls for some bitter medicine– we take it now, and get better, or else we take it later, and watch the meltdown, balkanization, and Nanny-Statification of the west stifle us to death.

Everybody Hates Steyn

The unpleasant thing about Jeremiahs is they say what we would do anything not to hear, because we feel it in our bones to be truthsome. Mark Steyn– unlettered author, former DJ, noted Islamophobe and rabble-rouser and shill for Big Evil– has done us all a signal service in issuing this courageous call from the rooftops about what lies right ahead.

Between he and Ezra Levant, we see some honest & heroic brass, for such a time as this.

I cannot say anything more than: Read It. Think It. Do It.* ~

* P.S. Mark sent me an autographed copy of the book. I’m clearly in the pocket of Big Steyn. I had to write the above in glowing tones, or The Jew Steyn would have me snuffed.


The Jew Did It!

~ ITEM: A Saudi woman has been sentenced to 10 lashes for driving, just days after King Abdullah granted women the right to vote and run for municipal office

~ ITEM: Ezra Levant– Saudi threats a SLAPP in the face: Blocking Canadian-made ad brings a taste of Saudi Arabian censorship to Canada

~ ITEM: From The Source, Sept. 26, 2011: The Saudi King has generously given women the right to vote, but do these reforms mean anything? Guest Raheel Raza says no

Levant & Raheel Raza on religious accomodation

~ A GOOD THING is a good thing, and so the recent decision– in part via the face of pressure from Ezra Levant & the ethical oil movement– for Saudis allowing the vote & candidacy for women (albeit in 2015) is good. Basic human dignity 1, cranky wahabist Islam 0.

Then the caveats & qualifications pile up. Let’s remember:

– “By law a female rape victim is at fault for illegal ‘mixing of genders’ and is punished along with the perpetrator.”

– “The guardianship system requires that every woman have a close male relative as her ‘guardian’ with the authority to approve her travel.”

– “Women risk arrest for riding in a vehicle driven by a male who is not an employee or a close male relative.”

– “Women also faced discrimination in courts, where the testimony of one man equals that of two women.”

– “The law requires a woman to obtain the permission of a male guardian to work if the type of business is not ‘deemed appropriate for a woman.’”

Erm.. Right Then

And so on and so forth, thanks to polygamist, child-molester, & wife-stealer Mohammed & 1400 years of repeating his misogyny.

What next? The current Saudi King is by all accounts what passes for a ‘liberal’ in Saudi & Middle-Eastern terms. No doubt this decision of his will not be popular in some quarters, but as with the Wink-Wink moment when Saudis were fine with Israeli overflight to take out Iranian nuke facilities, there’s the official position, and then there’s what you think and do and allow anyway.

So Far So Good?

Now, the list is still extremely long for any serious reform of Islam, whether in the golden hallways of Riyadh, or the deepest backwaters of Hillbillistan, where they still party like it’s 999. I’m not one as thinks any religion should go progressive, that being an ever-changing dirty-laundry list of political correctness. Let’s hope & pray instead that Saudi leads the way into.. well, the 13th or 19th century. The better parts of the Magna Carta, with some Victorianism, maybe?

We should not cluck and finger-wag too much, given how our modernity hardens and mannifies a lot of women, teaching them to chemically neuter themselves, act like whores from youth up, and generally out-boss and out-pig the most piggish and bossy men. We lie to them about abortion, wonder why all the cancers spring up, and enslave their minds with Marxist-feminist nonsensery about liberation with no consequences, and that family (and biology) are disposable– whilst turning them into greedy consumers for worldly goods. It’s new-and-improved slavery– of the mind and soul.

Baby-Steps, Or A Publicity One-Off?

Still, the new voting rights are but one element, in a religion and arab culture that is pro-slavery, pro-Jihad, pro-female genital mutilation, pro boy-rape, pro-tyranny, anti-reading, anti-semitic & Israeli, anti-Christian, and religiously intolerant, especially of converts. Then there’s that whole trying to bully Canada thing.

What Next?

But a good thing is a good thing, and this new moment for human dignity & liberty or the 55% of Saudi people that is female will hopefully herald a cautious, moderate, and un-radical change, bringing a leading arab nation out of the stultifying slavery of mind, body, and soul that is the religion of Muhammed. ~


MMmm.. Juicy Mouth-Drippings!

Bottled-Water Rant Part II

Cute..and tasty!

~ SO ABOUT THOSE new-fangled aluminum water-bottles which will save us from burial in evil plastic water-bottles.. how often do we clean them? Like the rarely-laundered re-usable enviro-bags which can become havens for e.coli and bacteria and such, if you don’t wash your enviro-bottle daily, it becomes a bacterial playground full of juicy mouth-drippings– unless you always pour it into a cup, which means more dish-washing, more soap down the drain, more water-wastage. What’s an eco-freaky to do?

Ye Olden Dayes

Old-style paper & plastic grocery bags were endlessly re-used.. but not for carrying food. Likewise, regular-sized bottled water is consumed in a short time, and the bottles recycled into other things. A dirty plastic or metal reusable water bottle? Full of bacteria, viruses, mucous, spit, bits of dental plaque, blood & dead cells, fragments of old food and drink, you name it. Hardly good for your health, however environmentally correct it might be.

We’ve been swamped with scares for 40 years or more– food, products, additives & chemicals, containers, and the panic-mongers show no signs of easing up. The fits and starts about this or that emergency threatening everything and everybody get a little overwhelming, and thus dull our minds to actual problems, or telling the difference between popular scares and actual dangers. If the sky is always falling, or Peter is always crying wolf, most people turn off their ears.

The bizarre schemes and panics and rules of the ecopocalyptics are enough to make your head spin.. never mind the juicy mouth-drippings. ~


Short Takes: Verboten Topics

~ CERTAIN TOPICS are off the table in today’s free-for-all.

(1) Abortion & Breast-Cancer. Not allowed to mention any possible link or evidence, cuz consequence-free sexuality is the highest freedom.

(2) Cards instead of money? Credit-cards and bank-cards track your life. Money is inherently democratic, because it’s hard to follow: big companies can’t mind your business, note your preferences, or review & pass on your business-activities, reading materials, or travel habits to other similar corporations. Creepy.

(3) Birth-control pills kill babies, too. Spontaneous abortions result when new fetuses cannot implant, or are lost when the woman’s period starts. 5% chance of conception every month.

(4) The tax-levels in Canada are insane. We’re milked for 75% by some reckonings, via all the hidden, tax-on-tax, and ubiquitous takings from everyone everywhere to pay for the ever-larger nanny-state, and all the folks who refuse to work, and all the goodies squandered on bureaucracy and the costs of running the government itself. Little tinkerings with the GST are sops to we addled tax-cows.

(5) Fried by amusements? What are the long-term health-effects of wireless tech? Any single bit may give us a mild dose, but what about the cumulative doses from (i) your cellphone, (ii) workplace wireless network, (iii) home wireless network, (iv) bluetooth devices, (v) cell-towers, (vi) all the rest? A life bathed in such localized & constant radiations & waves & electro-magnetism means the current & future generations are exposed to We Don’t Know What, But Just Don’t Ask. Just wondering (typed on a wireless computer.. I think the Binks-nads are sizzling).

(6) Got any others? Send ‘em along via binks-dot-webelf at gmail-dot-com. ~


Just Driving Me Nuts

~ ITEM: Hollywood versus History: Kingdom of Heaven and the Real Crusades, by Daniel Hoffman; plus Four Myths about the Crusades

~ ITEM: The New Concise History of the Crusades (Critical Issues in World and International History), Thomas Madden

~ ITEM: Chronicles of the Fourth Crusade and the Conquest of Constantinople by Geoffrey de Villehardouin, and Caroline Smith

~ MAYBE IT’S A RISK of being a screenwriter, or of holding Hollywood preconceptions, but I really dislike story-benders. Not letting people or history or events speak for themselves– and then putting our own words and thoughts in their mouths– is arrogant, blind, and unjust. It also whitewashes and confuses the past.

To take one example, the only modern Crusader flick– Kingdom of Heaven– rapes the past to tell a skewed and revisionist 19th and early 20th century version of the eeeevil Crusades. Even though the history is there– sometimes in the very words of the participants and observers themselves– Ridley Scott insisted on making a “We Suck” version of the crusades, where all the good guys are on the Jihad side.

Read this article (by Right Girl’s uncle, no less) on all the historical details & facts steamrolled by Mr. Scott, who was (of course) bullied by local Muslims while filming that project. Ironical, no?

Unplug Ears, Off The Blinders

For history to speak, you have to take off the blinders, turn off the political correctness, and see what there is to see. There’s lots of good anti-revisionist books & websites out there, including Chronicles of the Crusades (Penguin Classics) by Jean de Joinville, Geffroy de Villehardouin and Caroline Smith; Thomas Madden’s The New Concise History of the Crusades, as well as Muslim and Byzantine histories of the time. There’s the detailed world of archaeology, extant castles and buildings, and even the more recent excavations and history of the Massacre at Jacob’s Ford, where an incomplete crusader castle was the scene of a bloodbath committed by the Muslims.

That is, a little learning is a dangerous thing, but it’s not hard (though perhaps uncommon) to find & know the real deal. 4-500 years before the Crusades, the Jihad began, eating up much of the Roman (and Christian Empire) of East and West, submitting Persian and Arabian and African and European and Asian Christians and Jews and pagans under the sword, Sharia law, and third-class citizenship. Then the Crusades happened, and for another 400 years (give or take) the Muslims were pushed or held back.. then Europe gave up or couldn’t get it together, the Byzantines fell, and the jihad was on again. It still is.

We Lost, Right?

For many Muslims, the Crusades have become an excuse for hating us– even though they were the original conquerors, and they won. That our simultaneously smug and pandering creative classes & academics can only mock and misrepresent and rewrite history for political reasons (and have that picked up by the Islamic hateocracy)? It demonstrates the madness of our times, when all people and facts must be parrots and puppets and mouthpieces for ideology.

Polly wanna cracker? ~


Big Damn Hero

Adam Baldwin Music Video Tribute

~ ADAM BALDWIN– no relation to those other ones– is a talented American actor, and one of the stars of the greatest TV series ever, FireFly. There he skilfully played brutal meathead & mercenary for hire Jayne Cobb, since it takes a smart man to truly play a dumb guy.

Thing is, Adam’s a real-life Big Damn Conservative Hero, in a Hollywood where too many actors aren’t as heroic as the characters they play. A former Democrat, he read former Communist David Horowitz’s book Radical Son, and underwent a dramatic political conversion.

Now, Baldwin Tweets a great deal, and writes on BigHollywood.com – demonstrating that there’s an equally big brain inside his 6’4″ muscly self. All those dangerous books out there, threatening to mess with your political correctness– it’s a truthful world out there.

50 Favorite Firefly Quotes

A Manly Man

For this fan of Baldwin’s work (he’s been in everything for years), that takes it above admiration for his talent, into seeing him as a true man of courage & commitment– like conservative actor John Voight (Dad to Angelina Jolie)– bucking the political trends in TV and Hollywood, and speaking out loudly and intelligently about what he sees that is wrong in America, the world, the jihad, and much more.

One person can make a huge difference in the world, and for everybody else, near or far. Even if it may have cost him jobs or the limelight, clearly Mr. Baldwin knows that truth and goodness and speaking out is more important than fleeting fame, riches, or the approval of the leftward American media-clique.

You can see him these days on TV’s Chuck, doing teh tough & funny. ~
