A Great Blog

~ BACK WHEN I WAS AN Intel Chief in the Anglican Wars, I ran a couple of go-to websites for the Rest Of The News on those particular current affairs. Big hits, big work, lots of excitement. We were eventually hacked offline via two Episcopal Church sources– the head office, and a Left Coast Diocese. But I digress.

If you’re watching the rise of Draconistan under Mr. Obama, one website you simply must attend to is The Real Barack Obama (RBO). Consistent, factual, hard-hitting. Bookmark it, pass the word.

All the sites– and the news links I offer up for that matter day by day– are intended to be best of the best, or primary sources and analysis for what’s up in the world. I’ve little patience with lazy bad ranting (being a bit prone to it myself), so I pass on the cream of the web to you as I’ve been able to locate it.

Yes, it’s a lot of stuff– but you’re meant to browse, pick, and pass on, not digest the entire thing: it’s a buffet.

The truth of what’s up is essential to keep in focus as the lights go out in the West: evenif this is– in the end– the beginning of another Dark Age, that makes light and truth and passing things on that much more important. What we do echoes in eternity, as Maximus said to his troops in Gladiator: whether as faithfully defending the West against the neo-barbarians within and without, or in terms of our eternal and heavenly destinies, above and beyond this dark world, this vale of tears. ~

Warning: Danger Close

~ ITEM: It’s déjà vu all over again, notes David Pryce-Jones in The Corner.

~ ITEM: Obama adviser: Israel must give up its nukes.

~ ITEM: How Obama’s America Might Threaten Israel, writes Norman Podhoretz.

~ ITEM: Police: Gunman in Deadly Wesleyan Shooting Threatened Victim, Is Targeting Jews.

“Then they will begin to tell the mountains, ‘Fall on us!’ and tell the hills, ‘Cover us.'” [ St. Luke 23:30 ]

~ HIS NAME WAS TODD— a quiet Jewish kid, with a great laughing sense of fun, a lisp, and a generous soul. His dad ran a local Deli store. And our class of Grade sixes malignantly drove him to despair: little bits of violence, threats, name-calling, and picking on him verbally when the teacher was away, cruelly chanting “Todd is a fa-a-aggot!” over and over and over. He wasn’t, but he was my friend, and when the social pressure got too much, I played the Judas and distanced myself. My classmates eventually drove him from the school.

I still wonder about him, and if he turned out alright. I owe him an apology, if I can ever track him down again– even if he cannot find it in his heart to offer forgiveness. It’s experiences like Todd endured that can bend a life into ugly shapes, if not ruin or break it.

So when I look at little Israel, surrounded by bristling death-threatening bullies, breathing threats and death, I think I understand what’s up. Murder.. malign.. crush. The oldest hatred is rising, in reasonable secular and foaming-mouthed Muslim guise this time.

‘Israel’s A Fa-a-agot’…

The Obama regime’s recent bullying of Israel is an astonishing betrayal of American commitments, a betrayal of UN and international law, and a betrayal of the only democracy in the region– and a betrayal of faithful Jews everywhere, and Israel in particular. No other country– be it ever so lame or vile or worse– is made to constantly apologize for its existence, borders, and safety. Two-state solutions? Paleostine is a terror-cult, not a country, artificially propped up by Euro and US dollars to prevent real peace ever coming to the region, in the name of social justice or balance or oil money or appeasing Islam or some damn set of cowardly and wrongheaded excuses.

But I smell more than rats in the current US policy– as I’ve written before– and I hope the Obamanauts don’t bring about yet more slaughter and bitter memories by their overweening pride and gross overconfidence in their ability and wisdom to solve all problems. Right now, Israel is being shoved into a corner, and threatened: and I keep hearing “Never Again” and the thought of all those Israeli nukes aimed at all those cities, and wonder what the hell Obama is up to. Does he really think he can force the Israelis to lie down again under the boots of their enemies and would-be butchers? Walk quietly to the showers for a little special treatment, pretty please?

Blood On Our Hands

The first Holocaust (plus the 7 million+ other concentration camp deaths) was a warning about Glorious Leaders and magic solutions. We will be infamous in the future for having known better, having caused it this time, and having fought on the side of right last time but no longer, if the bombs of Mad Mahmoud and the inevitable Israeli last-ditch response cover the miserable Middle East with mushroom-clouds.

I told you so, but I hope I’m terribly, terribly wrong. ~

~ JUST IMAGINE: CP- (Ottawa) “Immigration Minister Jason Kenney used the federal Live-In Caregiver Program to keep two nannies enslaved.” And Canada’s liberal media ran 24-7 coverage on the ‘conservative’ scandal. Too much of our media is trained in telling fairy-tales, instructive left-wing morality tales in which the nice liberal people do good, or suffer because of evil-doing non-liberals. When reality does not follow the script, then you ignore the counterindications, or slime the story. To be fair, here at FMS we don’t watch a lot of Canadian News TV anymore, but 40+ years of it gives you the idea. ~
