“They Left The Vivid Air Signed With Their Honor”
– ITEM – D-Day: 65th anniversary
– ITEM – Reagan at Point Du Hoc
~ I HONESTLY don’t recall when World War II first entered my life– but with my maternal grandparents, it was only 20 years past when I was born: my Grandfather having served in Burma, and most of his brothers in Bomber Command, and my Grandmother’s older brother had been shot down and killed in 1943. It was always there.
As I grew older, my Grandfather told me his war-stories; showed me the black & white pictures, and let me read his WW2 pictorial history books, (as long as I put them back in the right order). By Grade 5, I’d done a project on the war, with a large map. With my own library card, large piles of books came home with me week by week, to learn of this world-changing event that had so touched my family.
In university, I studied military history; as a student-minister, I visited veteran seniors and always listened to their stories with interest– here were people, like my Grandfather, who had been there, done that. When it came to it, I was glad to do them full honours at burial. In 1995, I helped plan the province-wide worship service for the Legion gathering for the 50th VE Day anniversary, and told of my Grandfather’s experience in the sermon in front of serving military and 1500 veterans and their families.
With the internet, I posted pictures of my Great Uncle online via the official Government Remembrance website: he got no more life past his early 20s, and gave his future for all of us, for freedom, and for his country and family– it’s the least we can do.
But Enough About Me…
Now.. not everyone has to be super-interested in the war. Sadly, as with everything else, Obama is never engaged with anything, only when it is of use and interest to him. It is beyond sad that Obama’s uncle– much-mentioned by the candidate Obama in various speeches– says the younger Barack showed little to no interest in the “Auschwitz” Buchenwald Buchenwald sub-camp matter until it could win him political points– perhaps with Jews and veterans.
Exploiting history; associating himself with the heroic deeds of others; not bothering to get his story straight until a garbled version had already gone out on the airwaves? Typical.
At least Corporal Hitler actually deserved and won his one Iron Cross for heroic service in World War I.. this guy can’t even be bothered to get someone else’s story straight, nor hearken back to his own military service. Of course, that’s not what ivy league legacy kids did.. unless you were George Bush… or George Bush senior.. or even John Kerry, and thousands of other loyal Americans.
But Barack is only loyal to himself. For shame, Barack. ~
Invisible & Sticky
– ITEM – In Search of Saints– Fr. George Rutler’s A Crisis of Saints: The Call to Heroic Faith in an Unheroic World explores the God-given ability to exercise heroic virtue in the face of cultural breakdown
~ YES, ALL THE AGNOSTICS AND ATHEISTS have it all figured out.. except for faith. Delusion? Wish fulfilment? Opiate? Stoogery?
I’ve rather found that sensible and busy churches are full of volunteers, kind people, and well-involved folks committed to their families, communities, and churches. They are often the spiritual and feet-on-the ground glue holding an awful lot of things together, and getting an awful lot of stuff done, under the radar of media or big government.
When the region I served in suffered an air-crash disaster, it was the clergy, church ladies, and local emergency volunteers who kept things working and communicating. One priest died from the overwork of it; another had to retire. The professional $40 and hour crisis management teams (we called them ‘Huggies’) came and went, their easy rituals done, and the sorrowing and troubled lives left behind.
The problem with invisible spiritual glue is that it’s invisible.. and the effect is often not noticed until it’s come undone. Or when– as with the United Church in Canada, the fastest-dying denomination in Canada– the spiritual devolves into the Marxist, worldly-practical, an merely political: wine turned into water. The fatally-liberalized Anglican & Episcopal Churches aren’t far behind, having traded their birthrights in for a mess of pottage and holy sodomy.
Humans are fundamentally believing creatures– an ancient instinct arising from just looking around and going “Whoa” at the wonder of it all. Wonder automatically leads to worship, and questions, barring wrong-headed anti-religious indoctrination, and that growth happens with each child and soul grows into self-awareness, and awareness of others, and of mystery.
Sadly, that religious instinct can go wrong, and be bent to evil ends, or worldly forms, as when the healthy impulse towards penance and humility in Western Leftists gets secularized into hating and punishing ourselves– but with no forgiveness except through self-denigration and self-destruction.
We have to recall what the non-Al Gore saviour said about that (St. John 3:16-17):
“For God so loved the world that He gave
His only begotten Son, that whoever
believes in Him should not perish
but have everlasting life.
For God did not send His Son into
the world to condemn the world,
but that the world through Him
might be saved.”
Compare that with the attitude of a smug disciple of recycling, or global warming, or dhimmitude, or enviro-cars, or humans are a virus ideology. ~
Get Your Uppity On
~ BOYCOTT, LETTER-WRITING, it’s our first line of speaking back. Write that letter to your MP, and make copies for the Premier, and– if you get no adequate response– the media, as well. Tell companies why you are unsubscribing, boycotting, or otherwise protesting their stance.
Right now, GM, AOL, Pepsi, and a host of other companies deserve some conservative and socon protest/boycott action. Take a stand: write that letter, make a difference. ~

~ IMAGINE, IF YOU will, the talk in the links above being applied to Lincoln, Washington, Nixon, or even poor old Jimmah Carter.. and them allowing it. Not so much? Damn straight.
We’ve crossed a line with this guy. An anti-Christ sorta line. Attributing to a mortal the proper qualities of divinity.. it’s very Roman, or old-time Persian, maybe Egyptian.. not so much Judeo-Christian. Combine an anti-Christ figure with a leviathan country (one that officially leaves God or ultimate claims out of any and all account), and you have a hell on earth. Adolf, Mao, Joseph, and a hundred other mini-versions of the same old tiresome evil.
Except this time, it would be with the world’s most powerful country, and outpost of freedom, and democracy– however imperfectly. As Mark Steyn says in another context, who to the rescue? Britain? Canada? France? Russia? Mali?
As we’ve said before, the fault runs both ways, from those who utter such blasphemy, and to The One himself, who seems to be willing to let people say it, without calling them on it. ~

~ AS THE PILLAGING PROPHET laid it down for his minions of mafiosi, if the Jews & Christians won’t convert, they have to live under humiliating laws and special ‘taxes’, called ‘Jizya’. This was especially useful in filling the Jihad coffers, because the Christian cities of the Byzantine and older Roman empires were wealthy.
Christians then as now have always been diligent, prosperous, and thus ripe for envy and plunder and special taxing under Islamic domination. It’s part of why the Armenian Genocide was so sweet– while Islam does not encourage economic nor societal and technological progress, the Armenians were relatively well off as merchants and innovators. So their communities and persons were plundered, their lives forfeit.
Indeed, part of the weakness of the post-1700 Ottoman expansion & Jihad was that they’d not conquered any new lands, and too many Christians had escaped or converted: the sheep weren’t around to be fleeced. The internal finances of the Ottomans grew hollow; cuts were made; military adventures to reap new wealth grew financially riskier and less likely.
Funding The Faith-War
An observant Roman once said that “The sinews of war are infinite money.” So with Jihad– the money is the real issue. The Jizya, oil money, every kind of fraud and con-artistry, money laundering, false charities, special accounting, open extortion, selling Afghan heroin and marijuana, whatever it takes. The mafia could learn a few lessons from these guys.
Therefore– in accordance with the Prophet’s canny orders, the unofficial protection-money taxation of Christians and others under Muslim rule– and even outside it– continues apace. America, Europe, and those “Who Don’t Want Any Trouble” find it suddenly easy to fund the Paleostinian Prison Camp, terror-groups, Muslim pro-Jihad groups– why, the cash just keeps flying around in untold multi-billions.
Every time someone really starts to uncover the facts, it seems not only the usual Islamist perps, but some of our own power-brokers want to back up, cover-up, protect the perps. Witness the assault against Funding Evil, Updated: How Terrorism is Financed and How to Stop It, by Rachel Ehrenfeld, or the outright banning in Britain of the 2006 Alms for Jihad: Charity and Terrorism in the Islamic World, by J. Millard Burr and Robert O. Collins.
Mind you, compared to modern tax-ates under our socialist oligarchs, Jizya is a tiny percentage. Even the tea-tax which prompted the Boston tea-party was a dizzying 2%.
Nonetheless, terror-financing is all around us, and in virtually every country where profit is to be had, hid, or laundered. Canada is by no means exempt, and we need a full-scale enquiry into the web of Islamic Jihad finance in our country, and the connections thereof. Canadian taxes, and wages are funding bastard devoted to our own overthrow, alongside the oil-money going to terror-supporting nations in the Middle East, even amongst so-called ‘allies’. Our funding Hitler happened last big war.. let’s not make the same mistake twice.
This is a war, not a tea-party. However, it’s on the brink of becoming the world’s longest, slowest civilizational suicide. ~
– ITEM – Stimulousity– Panic 2011
– ITEM – The Declaration of Non-Dependency
~ GIVEN THAT Americans only had a choice between Obama & Obama-Lite last election, it is becoming increasingly obvious that the regrettable choice of The One is bearing much fruit.
The Democratic party and the Socialist/ Communist elements of American political life are running about fully exposed, doing their thing like there’s no tomorrow– it’s all out in the open. No promises, half-measures, or veiled criticism: the Obamunists are having their way with America, but unlike a lost weekend, people are actually paying attention.
There are the media leg-tinglers and plunderers who will still love Obama long after he’s dead and gone, but that’s always the way with dictatorial types. It’s also the reason there’s a Stalin/ Gulag theme park in a former Soviet slave-state: ah, the good old days.
Obamunism has struck like a pandemic: it’s having world-wide effects; and as the fever mounts to the breaking point, Americans get to see what the long-enticing vision of a nanny-state is like, how impossible amounts of imaginary money and debt pile up, how promises turn into ugly realities, how socialism is a false top-down gov-uber-alles fairy tale that cannot exist for long.
Canadians and Europeans already know this, or fear it, even as they hope to snuggle deeper into the arms of mommy-gov, and suckle the last drops from the withering teat.
If Americans had elected McCain, and got half-measures of the all-encompassing state, the socialist dream might still look pretty, and possible, all warm and fuzzy and nice. Obama’s approach– at once bumbling, hasty, and heavy-handed– is exposing it all for what it is.
Can American and Canadian conservatives take this to heart, and clearly distinguish themselves and their way from the now revealing nightmare of full-on American soft-fascism via Obama’s Uh.. L’Etat.. Um.. C’est.. Uh.. Moi?
Socialism is simultaneously a mistake, a temptation, and a false vision of human nature and society. It wants life by bread alone; heaven on earth, be it ever so hellish and costly; and offers a numbing false compassion and comfort that literally makes people too lazy to have kids, preserve freedom, or pass on the good things and the fight for our Western civilization. More comfort for me, now– everything else be damned!
Sadly, the good intentions of the American rebuilding of Europe provided a hothouse of easy money, socialist nonsense, and financial unaccountability. Europe may never get over the hangover.
If the U.S. herself attempts to morph into Euromerica? There’s nobody else to foot the already $11 trillion bill in imaginary money, unlike the booming American economy of the 50s and 60s which paid for a new Europe, and is still paying for it.
Borrowing from China? They’re not giving money away– and they recently got the nervous giggles when Plunder-Czar Geithner tried to tell them with a straight face about the soundness of the U.S. dollar. Even if Obama were to unite the economy with the government, that would only defer the due-date, and crush American innovation, investment, and free spirit. Even China is past that sort of theoretical nonsense.
I’m just wondering.. hoping a little.. considering the possibility.. that though painful and costly, the gift of the impatiently aggressive ideological and anti-American Obama/ Democrat regime may well wake America up before the Kevorking of America puts her into a fatal sleep for generations.
Let’s hope, and pray, and speak out: for as America goes, so goes the world, and the last great hope of the West. ~

“In any case, we are happier waking up as alien duplicates. At least no one is dying in Iraq that we know of. Our Predator drones no longer kill anyone besides terrorists. Military tribunals, renditions, and wiretaps are a-okay. GM and Chrysler are finally “readjusting.” The Muslim world likes us now. If $2 trillion deficits are okay, why not $3 trillion? Terrorists are unmentioned and so no longer exist. Europeans ask why can’t they have their own Obama. Even the likes of Pravda and Hugo Chávez swear that we are more leftist and PC than they they ever were. No more silly movies like Rendition or Redacted, since both protocols are now approved. Everyone is proud of the U.S. again. We’ve got a president who finally cares enough to remind us to inflate our tires and wash our hands.”
