UPDATED! Places To Do, Things To Go…

Minions:

Off soon to the Untied States, Missouri, in particular, to visit Binks-Dad and family there. Resting up, packing and such are taking a lot of time, and blogging has gone onto the shelf. Depending on how things go there, I’ll be blogging again within a week or so.

Thanks for your patience, good wishes & travelling prayers, and generous sending of gifts via Amazon.com whilst I’m on the road.

If anybody in Missouri wishes to make pilgrimage unto the Binky, I’ll be West of Kansas City.

See you soon,

Binks

– UPDATE: AIRPORT BLOGGINGSic transit gloria Delta: got to the airport, and are now enjoying the sweltering glories of the airport lounge, and our ever-receding flight. Originally for 9am.. then 10:35am.. now 12:30pm. Dear Lord, grant unto me the gift of patience.. but hurry up!

Binks hasn`t flown since before 9-11, so the new extra-security stuff was a novelty. Thankfully, with all the paperwork and suchlike, there was not little trip to the rubber-glove room, nor even the more usual impersonal bureaucratic malice one expects from bored civil servants. Mind you, Teh Binks is not a baddy, and is generally friendly and funny with strangers– runs in the family.

My maternal Grandfather George could strike up a friendship anywhere, with anyone, anytime. He was as magnanimous in friendliness as he was generous with his not inconsiderable worldly goods for them in need. So he shared his bright red Land-Rover, when hauling or winter plowing needed done for family, neighbours, and friends. A true great-heart, and a dear Grampa, besides.

Land+Rover

More later, hopefully from the midpoint of the trip, when and if we actually leave the home airport and get into the Untied States herself.

Do pray travelling mercies for Teh Binks, SVP.

Bon voyajee!

United Breaks Guitars, Don’t They?

~ ITEM: United Airlines gives to charity in guitar gaffe

~ ITEM: I’m a customer that won’t take poor service without a fight, but this guy has raised consumer revenge to an art form

~ GENERALLY I’M A PEACEFUL SORT, but get the dander up, try and steal or break something of me or mine, or lie barefacedly, and I get a little brisk.

The blogging all started partly to cover news, and partly to push back at the falsehood factory and abuse-machine that is modernist Anglicanism, and my crazy formerly conservative bishop of the time.. let’s call him “BigNose”.

Little people are actually the foundation of things, and the ones who do most of the grunt-work, and they generally make the best rabble-rousers.. witness Wat Tyler, William Wallace, and even the middling folks leading the Pilgrimage Of Grace against the sexual & ecclesiastical predator Henry VIII.

So you want to bet that the gone-viral video about a bit of utterly botched customer service by United Airlines has them wishing they could hit rewind. Danged uppity customers!

Thus within a few years, the old news gig by Binky– CaNN, or Classical Anglican Net News– was the leading non-mainstream church media website, visited by clergy and laypeople and bishops and archbishops around the world. Yes, simply by telling “the rest of the story” in a timely, piquant, and persistent manner, I did shape events in the Anglican world. Danged uppity drone!

So a stomped-on politically incorrect cleric became an international powerbroker and new-media news-source, simply by telling the rest of the story, and not edited for correctness, and 4 months after the fact. Thanks for the inspiration, Bignose, and to all your simpleminded drones who would rather knuckle under and not stir the pot.

So more power to ordinary people of good will like Halifax-based Dave Carroll and his band Sons of Maxwell, who didn’t just go away mad, but spoke the truth in a fair, funny, fact-based way, and now has United Airlines (they break guitars, don’t they?) calling him to make things right, belatedly. So has Taylor guitar, recognizing a hit and a happening moment when they see one.

I believe in changing the world for good, and that it lays in the power of honest ordinary folk to do it, simply by standing up, speaking out, and connecting with other like-minded people for mutual support and strength in numbers. So someone like Ezra– perhaps imagining himself destined to be a power-broker and political figure in Ottawa, has instead captivated the nation and the internet by speaking back, persisting, and writing a fine blog and a better book about his experiences. Perhaps not the route he’d planned, but the time and place and path that was open and needed someone like him to step out and lead.

Why? Well, I believe in God, and therefore, as my Boss put it, that “all things are possible with God.” [ Matthew xix. 26 ] ~

Effing Christians!

~ ITEM: Must Watch Video: Michael Coren – Check your moral equivalence at the door

~ ITEM: They Won Their Freedom

~ ITEM: Why mass murdering Communism fails and mass murdering Islam is a successful vampire at large in the free West.

“No.”

~ (Former NDP MPP Marilyn Churley’s terse response when queried by Michael Coren as to whether we should be concerned about the danger posed by radical Islam, The Michael Coren Show, July 8, ’09) ~

Michael Coren – Check your moral equivalence at the door

~ WHEN IT COMES to special discrimination, watch a progressive when you give them a chance go riffing on Christians and their imagined excesses past & present. When it comes to anything to do with the claims of a particular faith, all bets are off– whether it’s the accuracy of the Bible, Christian History, The Shroud of Turin– or even comparing Christian atrocities by so-called fundamentalists against the progressive pieties of abortion, the sodomy-industrial complex, big government, Jew-bashing, and multiculturalism, or the jihad.

The Bald Guy Brings It

Michael Coren’s show is simply must-watch, especially when he’s not bashing the conservatives he invites onboard. His past work on abortion was a real eye-opener to this blogger, and while his books have been a mixed lot, his TV-work and column writing is simply perfection.. like the swordsmanship of a real master: to the point, cutting, and seemingly effortless.

So you have on this part of his show a failed socialist politician, and a flagrantly ‘anti-Zionist’ student politician heading up the Soviet of the worse-than-a-joke York University (which we sometimes refer to as Sockpuppet University, since several of the anti-Steyn sock-puppets of noted anti-Semite and sharia-warrior Mo Elmasry were graduates of the law skool thereof). Ah yes, the remarkable sort of education which results in objects like Khurrum Awan-To-Be-Famous When I Grow Up.

On The Other Hand

If it’s seriously Judeo-Christian– in this polarized age of marching Islamists and active progressives– then it’s a free-for-all of legend, hear-say, caricature, and calumny which should theoretically bring about Human Rights Complaints, if the commissions weren’t staffed with lapsed and liberal cultural-Christians, along with a dog’s breakfast of acceptable multicultural products. But– as we know– Christians are sinners, and very powerful and dangerous and intolerant, and want to impose violent religious law on everybody, and repress women, and hate infidels and such, right? The Islamist Jihad and secular utopians are set for a rumble, and want to clear the battlefield of other religious nutters, especially serious and thoughtful Christians who won’t be sent off to their rooms without supper for believing on God and Jesus and stuff.

That we have actual Muslims who desire and are working hard to implement such things in Canada would not faze such stalwart bigots as “NDP Stalwart Marilyn Churley and her fellow Islamofascist Apologist Krisna Saravanmutta President of the York Federation of Students.” The NP, as we’ve noted elsewhere, are infiltrated panderers to militant Canadian and offshore jihad & sharia supremacism. So too, most Canadian universities have links to the sharia-supremacist MSU, and anti-semite/ anti-Israel activism, such as perpetrated by the ostensibly Hindu Saravanmutta.

Reality-Check, Please!

After all, it was frothing Jesus-nutters like Stephen Boissoin and Chris Kempling who have been persecuted by the state in one case, and the Marxist/ Homophile BC Teacher’s Union on the other, to the tune of their careers, tens of thousands of dollars, and years of their lives. When Point De Bascules tried to get a Human Rights Compliant to even be accepted for consideration against a vile and publicly hateful Islamo-cleric of some sort in Quebec, it was a no-go. It’s all good.

That, ultimately, is the lie behind the batten-down-the-hatches approach of apparatchicks like Jennifer Lynch and her related crew of cronies and enablers. It’s not about justice, law, truth, or fairness– it’s about punishing political crimes against multiculturalism, and making a utopian Canada. In that sense, she’s perfectly right: the CHRC is doing its job, as currently programmed: terminating the bumpiness and freedom of the human mind and soul.

Ewww! Relijinn..

“Soul”?– and oogy-boogy icky religious word, unless you’re talking soulful movies with sparkly vampires these days, but it’s a soul thing: seeking what we were made for; the beautiful, the good, the true– and ultimately, God. Neither government as God, nor Allah as Dictator can stand the concept of liberty and freedom as set out in the Graeco-Romano Judeo-Christian universe. Both seek to replace it with something else: in one case, political correct zombieism under bureaucrats, and the other, mindless submission under mullahs.

We must treat such a mindless wrecking machines like Michael Coren treated the idiots in the clip above: with merciless love and compassion, undercutting their nonsense until there’s nothing left. The only possible answer is to gut the institution, fire the bureaucrats, and reset it to the original task: rents, discrimination, and letting the criminal law intervene when and how it must.

Just remember: bigoted progressives and entitled bureaucrats will fight tooth and nail against open opposition: they are the true believers and fundamentalists, alongside their Islamist allies of convenience. But facts, reasonable faith, and a little brave persistence in fighting back go a long way. ~


Forward Into The Abyss!

~ ITEM: Liberals and terrorists a better fit than liberals and Americans; A Committee on Un-Canadian Activities until election day

~ ITEM: Political opposition is not a hate crime

~ ITEM: Disgraced ex-judge Alcee Hastings can hardly wait to throw his political opponents into concentration camps; Democrat Congress-hack: Jews are Black, Blacks and Jews love to kill babies, Palin is Hitler

~ CANUCKISTAN LED THE WAY! Back when we built and produced things and innovated, we Canuckis invented a ship-load of cool stuff. Now that we’re more into having 1 out of every 10 Canadians work for the government, then our innovations tend to be more in bad ideas, red tape, and socialist stupid.

So during the same-sex marriage debacle in Canada, then-PM Paul martin actually vocalized the notion that only Liberals who agreed with radical sexual politics were the real thing: all other views were ‘unCanadian’– where’ Canadian ‘ means whatever the government had currently gotten away with, or was planning to get away with, according to the passing whims and activities of radicals with political access. Current Liberal leader and PM-hopeful Michael Ignatieff seems to hold this view, as well

This ugly doctrine dovetails nicely with the idea that squeaky wheels get the rights, and the more rights you invent or demand or accrue, the more real you and your minority and their grievances are. The logical consequence is that those without lots of time and lawyers and an obsessive sense of entitlement– say, 95% of the populace– have, legally speaking, less right, less legal existence, less piled-up demands satisfied by the progressive courts. So the by now hoary joke that a handicapped latino-black-asian lesbian is the perfect modern more-equal-than-thou person, as far as special treatment goes.

The losers? Law. Justice. Impartiality and true equality. As opposed to the ‘consumer’ label of capitalism, or the ‘citizen’ label of law, we become ‘rightists’. Ordinary people find themselves left behind and disenfranchised, voiceless, and– indeed– less and less Canadian, as defined by the ever more radicalized bleeding edge of progressive social re-engineering.

Fast forward a few years, to the progressive utopia of Obama’s USSA, where we see the same doctrine, but with the practical effects made more visible by the suicidal speed of change in that society. Thus, we see a de-citizening of all but hard-left Democrats and their elites, and certain favoured minorities including liberal Blacks, Latinos, and Muslims. Whites? Mostly bad. Gun & Bible-clingers? Bad. Limbaugh/ Beck & minions? Bad. Gun-owners? Bad.

So the 2009 pork-handout goes to pro-Obama areas; so Republican GM dealers are closed down before Democrats; so blacks and their radicals are given a free pass, legally; so ordinary ‘un-righted’ folk find their economic, political, and legal freedoms slowly infringed by an ugly, merciless, and radical elitism, that deems all unprogs as ‘un-American’.

God willing it only stays that way and not much worse– but the 20th century is heaped high with the bodies of ideological enemies, deemed by their various betters as expendable or eminently in need of special & final treatment. Big government is the enemy of freedom, and has been the means by which paperwork and due process have led to disenfranchisement, gulags, and death-camps.

Gulag-Guy Alcee Hastings
Gulag-Guy Alcee Hastings

So when we see some Democrats in the U.S. [ like Rep. Alcee Hastings, amongst others ] start to apply words like’ terrorist’ to people who are actually legitimate political opponents, or suggesting that camps for rounding up the ideologically impure might go along way to neatening up American political life, we say (1) it’s happened before, and (2) could happen again. Ironically, unlike the infamous UnAmerican Activities Commission of leftist Joe McCarthy, there were communist plots and espionage throughout the U.S. establishment, and the entertainment elites– it was the cool cutting-edge thing, of course. Now, the unAmerican activities appear to be be thought-crimes, and unprogressiveness as currently defined by Obama, Al Gore, The Huffington Post, and 9/11 Truther/ Bushitler haters.

What gives me goosebumps is not that idiots say stupid things, but that Democrats don’t dog-pile their own for making such illiberal and fascistic statements in public. Are these trial balloons? We know Obama has that whole busy schedule thing and so can’t speak out on anything he doesn’t feel like checking the teleprompter for his current opinion, but this sort of thing is– and must remain– truly unAmerican, uncivilized, and inhuman. Evil.

We told you so. ~


Please– Give Till It Hates!

~ ITEM: Blazing Cat Fur: A Kuffar in the house that Bangash built

~ ITEM: Elmo’s new rag “The Canadian Charger” Gains Instant Credibility With Stellar Editorial Board

~ GOOD LUCK WITH THAT, then! It’s July, and apparently Canada is still left deserving better, according to noted Jew-Hater and pro-Muslim bigot Mohamed Elmasry and his leftist-crony crew. So much for getting that magazine underway, huh? No wonder you wanted to hijack Maclean’s in the good old fashioned Jihad way of taking other people’s cities, inventions, culture, and holy places.

A bit of free advice Mr. Elmasry, for your next auction-thingy: make sure ahead of time that you’ve got a few patsies already willing to cough up big figures, so it looks like some sort of inspiring wave of spontaneous support, and not a lame-ass underwhelming can’t-get-it-up moment, as actually occurred. Word has it the Saudis have lots of jihad money– why not ask them to pony up for a new hate-mag for Wahabbism?

Oh No He Di’in’t!

Of course, this vile infidel can’t help but remember the showdown of Elijah and the Prophets of Ba’al on the mountaintop [ 1 Kings 18:17-40 ].

As hour after hour the Ba’al worshippers feverishly beseech their deity to set their sacrificial wood & bull on fire, Elijah offers a little helpful and grimly comedic commentary on their lack of success [ 1 Kings 18:27 ].

Cry aloud, for he is a god; either he is meditating, or he is busy, or he is on a journey, or perhaps he is sleeping and must be awakened.”

The original Hebrew translated as “he is busy” is ‘turned aside’.. that is a Biblical euphemism for “gone off to the little boy’s room”.

Given the underwhelming state of the Canadian Charger, perhaps Mr. Elmasry needs to check if his deity is zoned out, or perhaps is on the can, wandered off somewhere, or gone nappy-byes? Or maybe his god is unhappy that ElMo’s consorting with useful idiots who happen to be dirty infidels.

Then again– as Mark Steyn noted– someone who puts all his eggs in one basket by trusting in the compelling star-power of a sad little sock-puppet like Khurrum Awan? Maybe giving even Allah a hard time bringing about some good out of that repetitious little walking toothache. ~


Watching Over Me

AngelicCovering

~ ITEM: Modern Angelic Appearances

~ JUST IN CASE you were wondering, yes I believe in angels, and that the Shroud of Turin is the actual thing, and that Christianity– all of it– is true, and good.

I would say that there is indeed more ‘evidence’ in the modern era, with our scientific tools, and advances in quantum physics and otherwise, to understand a universe that is remarkably more complex than the Newtonian or even Einsteinian theories allow for. That may upset the “prove it” atheists, but old tags like “the laws of nature” or even the passing fads of mechanistic evolution, or biochemical determinism, genomic & genetic theories, and whatever will come along next in the parade of Ultimate Scientific Theories of Everything are the certainties of a moment. Science proceeds by analogy, and by the dominant philosophical and intellectual currents of an age.

My notion of angels? Not wee bare-bummed cherubs: think, rather.. a giant highlander, ready to bless or blast, at the Lord’s command. And the Fallen angels? Empty nightmares beyond any easy description. And ghosts? Never seen one, but people I know have, in addition to other ‘weird‘ and various premonitory things in the immediate family– to use the Scottish word in the proper sense.

More than once, a parishioner would begin a story with “You’re going to think I’m crazy, but..” only to find out that this particular priest did, in fact, believe in various aspects of the supernatural, and generally did not assume that anybody describing a ghost, vision, angelic visit, or other ‘beyond the ordinary’ spiritual experience of some form was de facto insane. ~

Steynian 372

“As Benedict argues in his previous encyclicals, as well as the current one, the state is no replacement for the family or the church: The state cannot love us — and it would be a scary thing even if it could. Even where the state does have some responsibilities, it may obey the principle of subsidiarity — that is, let individuals, families, churches, businesses, and local communities handle their own problems first. This is the setting for the pope’s call for fraternity and a vibrant, diverse civil society.”

~ On Pope Benedict XVI ~


Memory Hole, 2009

A tipster writes:

“Scary!  The CRTC is trying to erase the past.  They published today a new version of their June 4th decision on the New Media hearing.  The only diference between the original decision of June 4th (herewith attached) and the revised one of today, is the deletion of the following paragraph from Timothy Denton’s concurring opinion:

“The history of the regulation of speech in this country does not engender confidence that such powers will be used wisely. Canada has experienced several instances in recent times where regulatory commissions of another type and armed with a different mission have challenged the right to say controversial things. The struggles of Ezra Levant, Mark Steyn and others have served as important warnings that regulatory authorities charged with combating racism, hatred, and other evils have consistently expanded their mandates, have abused their powers and eroded fundamental liberties. Wherever there is official orthodoxy, disagreement is heresy, and where there is heresy, there is usually an inquisition to root it out. After centuries ridding ourselves of thought control agencies, 20th century Canada re-invented them.”

Broadcasting regulatory policy: The Commission replaces the concurring opinion appended to Review of broadcasting in new media, Broadcasting Regulatory Policy CRTC 2009-329.

Will Blog For Shekels

~ STILL WAITING for the cheques & perqs. Elders of Zion.. MRWC Conspiracy.. Limbaugh & FoxNews.. Israeli Boosters.. Hateful White Men North America. Nothing. Still waiting for the bribes, the kickbacks, the payments, the Joooo-shekels.. grrrr. Ezra sent me a free copy of his awesome book, and he`s allegedly Jewish– does that count?

Back in my Anglican days, the civilized white racist bishops at one of the international chat-fests in 1998 accused some of their ignorant darkie peers who had the stones to oppose the glorification of teh gay, that they`d all been bought off. With chicken dinners and bbqs, no less. That the developing world bishops have more earned doctorates than their American counterparts?– never mind. Said one uppity nigra– Archbishop Emmanuel Kolini of Rwanda, not amused at the charge– “We have chicken back home in Africa, you know,” he told the Christian Challenge. “Only one thing bought me and still buys me, and that’s the cross and nothing else.”

You’d think that if such predictable calumnies were true, that Obama, Iggy, and the Religious Left would just pony up and buy us all off. You know, like Democrats and Ottawa Gliberals entitled to their entitlements, and a little cream off the top if they don’t get caught.

As for this member of the ingrate impecunious regiment of bloggers, you can ply me with KFC as you wish, and I will give you a hearty thanks, and go on my way as before. We have chickens in Binkland, you know. ~


School Daze

~ ITEM: College Paper Shows Obama Was a Raving Anti-American Kook

~ ITEM: Avoiding an American Ambush, by Caroline Glick

~ ITEM: “Why Won’t Obama Talk About Columbia? — The years he won’t discuss may explain the Ayers tie he keeps lying about.”

~ FOR SERIOUS STUDENTS, university is an exciting time for learning, wrestling with ideas, and (gasp!) seeking the true and the good. Many of us would blush to have our sometimes garbled, sometimes fever-swamp effusions of those days read aloud in public. Then again, not everyone is in charge of the world.

The utter clampdown on all Obama documents is one of the many unresolved crimes and scams surrounding the current POTUS– medical/ psychological, academic, transcripts and documents, any and all reality-based records remain unreleased. That, and the O-media cooperation with the O-machine embargo.

Personally, I stand behind everything I’ve ever written, even if I currently wouldn’t agree with myself then; but it was still me, in continuity with myself now, and the foundations of my thoughts and views today.

Now we have a glimpse into the great one’s School Days. Blech. It’s thoughtless rad-babble, not the shining pearls of wisdom which will no doubt spill from his young lips in the upcoming biopics. I’d pay real chicken dinners for a full file of his university papers.

Whither all the intrepid would-be Woodward & Bernsteins to blow this conspiracy wide open? Where the fearless papers and editors like those who defied Der Fuhrer, exposing his secrets, lies, and scandals? That this comes– possibly belatedly– from the NYTimes indicates no great turn of the Legacy Media, unless it’s more than a one-off.

The real story is how a guy who can’t talk without a teleprompter, or remember how he met his own wife, who gives the stink-eye to world leaders and American citizens who don’t fall down and worship him, and who appears to have serious psycho-medical issues, is now running the world, like some latter-day black Dr. Strangelove. As someone recently remarked to me, “Without his Chicago handlers he would have a complete meltdown for sure.”

Looks like we’ll have to wait for years for the rest of the story. ~


Totally Weak

~ ITEM: Who’s da Boss?

~ IS IT JUST ME, or is the partly black President of the USSA going around the world doing a 21st century version of the subservient shuck-and-jive happy negro of 1930s Hollywood? He always wants to please, is always apologizing for the USA, and seems mortally afraid of offending anyone, but particularly the nastiest regimes on the planet. Grovelling to tyrants, backhanding allies and weaker nations. His current underwhelming performance in Russia is just gravy on the cornflakes: he’s his own caricature, in blackface.

Can’t we just rewind and get a real man elected? Thomas Sowell, maybe?

A weak, bossy bully with no fixed centre, and a blindly racist/ communist ideology which will ruin his nation if it succeeds, and project an image of weakness and lack of principle abroad. No doubt someone else is to blame, since Obama– internationally, at least– is very much The Man Who Wasn’t There. ~


Zombie Vs. Protesters

~ ITEM: Iran: Historic Opportunity Squandered Under Weak US President; If they can’t protest, then we will

~ ITEM: Unbelievable chutzpah: Cash-strapped Los Angeles is asking Jackson fans to pony up donations to help defray the estimated $2.5 cost of their idol’s memorial

~ ITEM: Contrasting Views on Michael Jackson

~ ITEM: Vomit Alert: MSN Receives 50% More Traffic for Pedophile’s Memorial Than Obama’s Inauguration

~ LAST EVENING, there were 20 000+ stories on Michael Jackson’s global grief-orgy. I didn’t watch it. The news– having taken their cue form the unprincipled assclown in DC rather than the man-up utterance of the leader of France– has de-newsed Iran. As Mark Steyn and others have observed, you know it’s bad when the cheese-eating surrender-monkeys are more ballsy than your boss.

This blood and wimp-out is on Mr. Obama’s watch. The buck tried to stop there, but he had some bizarre idea that Mad Mahmoud was his destined date in some fantasy- unicorns and kumbayah peace-dance.

I stand by my words about Michael Jackson the other day; but shame on our media, entertainer, and political classes for saying little and doing less about the ongoing struggles and bloody sorrows of an ancient people. Shame, too, on the smarter-than-thou experts who can’t see through the Iranian mess to recognize a rising generation– raised with Twitter and surfing the free world– who watn something more than crazy old men, make-up police, prison for speaking out, and thugs.

And did most people even remember the London terror-bombings?

Shame on us. We know better, and we’re determinedly trying to look the other way. ~

~ HE’S A FULL-STATUS Canadian native, a direct descendant of the famous Joseph Brant, and he’s got no time for the complainers. Those who use the troubles of the past or present to justify malingering, complaining, tax-dodging, and depending on the government for everything. He worked hard his whole adult life, paid all the taxes, and left every situation and work-place better (and more cheerful) for his having passed through it. He made a difference, just like Old Joseph did in his time. And he loves Canada, and his home province, and his native roots.

Chief Running Lips White Feather

According to noted native-rights activist and other-people’s-business minder Omar “F*ck Canada” Shaban, I suppose my friend is a fake. You know, ’cause Canada-hating jihadists and certain aboriginal malcontents find common ground in hating Canada. Perhaps said Jihadists would like to take their aboriginal friends to live back in Lebanon, where the grievances, grudges and hates go back a thousand generations and more, and everybody gets to be profoundly miserable.

I do think Canada has done poorly by natives– not least in the liberal-created culture of dependence represented by the perpetual destructive welfare of the Department of Indian Native Aboriginal Affairs, and the many many billions thrown around for bureaucracy, lawsuits, and mafia-like tribal councils to dole out to cronies and withhold from non-family trouble-makers. A perpetual tax-fed underclass? Sounds like the Palestinians, to me: malcontents with a stake in keeping the payments coming and the hate & blame-game going.

Mind Your Business, Aye?

But if Mr. Shaban will pardon my French, eff off– it’s our business, not yours. And since some of my Scots ancestors– and the ancestors of people arriving here from Scotland and everywhere else as recently as a century ago– suffered terribly under the hands of the English yet don’t sit about demanding reparations for the dead and stolen, but rather get about making things better, I’d rather see militant jihadists like Chief Running Lips get off their cyber-asses to make Canada truly a better place for everyone, and not members of their too-often bigoted and backwards religious tribe.. and maybe tell his native friend the same.

And as others have pointed out, maybe he can speak out about the nightmares, inequities and underclasses of his own homeland and the Middle-East generally. How’s about that Hezbollah, huh? Those Syrian assassinations, eh? All that picking on Christians, then? And what about the slavery and misogyny in the Middle East, ongoing to this day? Too close to home? We’re pretty sure the Canadian Aboriginal establishment– nor Canadians of good will– don’t need this Abdul-come-lately with all the Canada-hating.

Wah Boo Hoo? Nah

As an individual, I’ve known many hardships, suffering, prejudices, persecutions, and other excitements: but sitting around blaming the darkness on others instead of lighting a candle? Sorry– you get little sympathy from me.

The only way to prove you’re a fool is to open your mouth and let it flap– or in this case, your blog, and let yourself blather. Well done, then, Shaban.

Thankfully, this is Canada, and though Elmasry and Lynch and co would have it otherwise, though you have a right to free expression, we also have the right ignore you, or if we choose to listen, thus to deem your stuff nonsense, and mock it as mercilessly as it deserves.

While you’re so busy truth-telling, Mr. Shaban, why not let Canadian native people know what Allah allegedly thinks about pagan religion, or about Christians? About how Arab employers treat native Philippinas and other immigrants who work for them? How the Muslim Mughals treated the Buddhists and Hindus of India? Or the Bahais across the Middle-East? When we see you marching in a pro-Ahminajihad protest with a sign calling for justice for the Bahais, or Yazidis, then we can talk, you interloping poseur.

Face it, Mr. Canada-Hater: you’ll keep hating until everyone (including natives) have bent the knee to sharia law and Islam, and strutting little roosters like yourself can be the boss of everyone, and the terror of those you dislike. Stop covering your fascistic religious hate with a veneer of self-righteousness… or, maybe, volunteer your services to an isolated native community somewhere and really put your money and time where your mouth is, Big Chief Flapping Lips White Feather. ~

‘Mergency Boi

~ ITEM: The Young Tyrant – a Lesson from History

~ ITEM: Biden: US Will Not Stand In Israel’s Way On Iran

~ ITEM: Hillary Clinton: “Never Waste a Good Crisis

[YOUTUBE=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B62igfNu-T0&feature=player_embedded]

~ MANCHURIAN PREZ— If he’s not on our side, could it be that Obama is hoping/ counting on some sort of helpful terror-hit on the USSA, so he can go all emergency-crackdown on things? Never waste a crisis, right? After all, why else ‘accidentally’ release all that nuke-site material on the internet? All this cuddling with terrorists and terror-regimes? Quid pro quo? No, I’m not going all conspirazoid.. it’s just how fascistically inclined leaders work: manufacture or exploit convenient plausible excuses for exercising complete control over a nation.

Since all the latest ‘o-mergencies’ have fallen a bit flat recently.. call it ‘crisis-fatigue’.. it seems like an outside-threat would be just the thing. Biden predicted phase one; I’m calling phase two, since the NORKS couldn’t get it up to do in Pearl Harbour if their famished lives depended on it. ~


Palin The Rearview

~ ITEM: Jonathan Kay: Right-wing culture warriors are putting Palin’s martyred political career up on a cross

~ ITEM: Despite what her detractors say, stepping away from office isn’t necessarily a bad decision. Here’s what Palin could, and should, do: 1. Start putting her national team together now. Recruit from the best and the brightest of real conservatism

~ ITEM: David Frum: The disastrous Sarah Palin could have become a modern-day Goldwater

~ ITEM: Palin attorney warns press on ‘defamatory material

~ WE ALL HAVE OUR LIMITS— Perhaps Governor Palin reached hers. However, the question that will linger forever is: could she have been a good candidate again, and won? With proper training, skin-thickening, and all? Or did she feel she was getting too close to the trading-in-her-soul point to keep on that track?

Insofar as we in the public line have to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous opponents, you have to disassociate your position and yourself– it’s just the way you gotta roll. Especially for Christian politicians, you know that you war not only against flesh & blood, but also against spiritual opposition and evil powers that would use, disort, or exploit your good intentions.

It’s the point made so vividly in Lord Of The Rings, as each of the main characters is tempted to take the ring and use it for their own ‘good’ purposes. So Gandalf, the Elves, Boromir, Galadriel, Aragorn, Sam, and Frodo all are tested by ultimate power, on Sauron’s terms. The key of course is the difference between domination and servanthood– so Gandalf– over his 2000-year plus pilgrimage through Middle Earth, uses his mighty powers and life to serve and protect and watch and fight evil, not to seek nor build the glorious kingdom of Gandalfistan.

I’d say that by his current actions, Obama has succumbed to Lord Acton’s warning about absolute power, and morphed it into “Power corrupts.. and absolute power is rather nice, thank you.” That also seems to be what Jack Layton and Michael Ignatieff would do in Canada, in their own ways. Unfortunately, Stephen Harper has blotched his own escutcheon by some bad habits tending to needless secrecy, ill manners, and petty tyranny of his own– alongside a poll-watching and indecisive conservativism that satisfies nobody.

Power– like wealth or other personal gifts of body, mind or spirit– is meant to be used and bent to the benefit of others. Politicians, husbands, parents, and other leaders have the chance to change and shape the world one heart and mind at a time. To abuse, neglect, or fail in that regard brings us to the impass we are in, where the best can’t be bothered, and the bad are full of restless activity.

I don’t entirely understand Sarah Palin’s current choice, but it’s her business, not ours. ~

Puppets In The Hand Of A Goofy God

~ JUST HAD A fresh reminder of why George Lucas should never be hands-on with the Star Wars franchise again– watched the Phantom Menace, because it was on the idiot box. In the Lucas universe, everything in the future movies must be clumsily echoed in the past prequels; actual Jedi powers and skills must be sacrificed to plot; dialogue must cause wincing; actors must be hired on the basis of God knows what; cameos are wildly amusing; characters must be sacrificed to ‘dramatic moments’ that are supposed to tug the heart-strings (presumably of Mr. Lucas); and hate is the greatest possible evil.

I was reminded by TPM that the whole experience was so unpleasant for him that the great Liam Neeson (who played a Jedi knight) retired briefly from acting, muttering darkly about the abuse of actors. The dark lord Lucas does have a blasting effect on things. The money-making hack’s best gift to the movie world may turn out to be the inspiring special effects, and THX™.

The best recent products from LucasCorp are the animated movie & cartoon series ‘The Clone Wars’– I do believe Jabba The George has been kept at some distance from plot and dialogue (though the erratic Jedi-powers still come and go, as in the movie, for convenience and drama of plot).

It’s hard to write consistent story, plot, technology, and force-powers. That’s why George really needed to hire real writers to help him see how stuff works, how people talk, how force powers might be lived out (no force-pranks? really?!?)– so all the characters come across less as puppets, as real people into whose dramatic lives we’ve been allowed to peek for a time. He also needed to consult a Catholic theologian or two for a decent moral universe of good and evil, choice and unchoice. Maybe a physics prof to discuss plausible space-ships and motion and stuff. Lucas was never much of a thinking-person’s writer or director in those respects.. more of a circus showman.

Just sayin’ is all. ~


On Folk Wisdom

~ ITEM: Helpful Hillbilly Sayings

~ ITEM: No Laughing Matter – America’s Path to Marxism

~ HAVING KNOWN AND LOVED lots of rural folks who knew varieties of sayings, handed-down wisdom, and old-wives’ tales, I’ve found that much of it makes a lot of sense, as distilled human experience. Book-learning has the risk of fad, popular stupidity, and passing cluelessness. Especially in the modern academy, making sense is verboten– too patriarchal, racist, whatever.

Ordinary folk have been putting up with snake oil salesmen since the garden of Eden– most of them (unless they’re morphed into clueless bandwagon-jumpers) cans smell a load of steaming hot manure for what it is, and from a distance. They can also tell if an educated person loves them and loves truth, or otherwise. To earn that trust is a great privilege, for such hearts and minds are then open, ready for more truth and love.

I remember one of my profs– he truly love his students, and sought to help form their souls, as well as impart teaching. He was a wise, well-educated, but uncompromised soul, who bore a series of physical problems with great humility and humour. As a teacher in Early Church Theology, he attracted all different sorts of students, too: and once– confronted by a militant feminist, he calmly let her speak a moment, and then said “That may be so: but let’s find out what the authors meant, and the text says first, shall we?”

That– of course– is the point of all real scholarship: to encounter and wrestle with the best minds and issues of the ages in the original words, with the best of commentators at hand, but not over-influencing us at first. Then comes digesting the great ideas, then comes understanding, then comes– maybe, humbly, hesitantly– our very best ideas on the matter, not bandied about with pride and as if our novelty should stun and amaze everyone, but as if we are the most junior and worthless partner in a conversation of the greatest souls and minds ever.

As I’ve said elsewhere, that’s why the damnable damnability of idea-pimps like the Mainstream media and politically correct academia– they don’t want thinking, just downloaders of the predigested data, to be repeated and handed on. Understanding? bad. Asking questions? Really bad. Disagreement or alternative takeson Teh Group Think™? WHOOP WHOOP WHOOP– Red Alert! Thought Crime! Freespeecher! Extremist!

So– like Obama and others– we’re supposed to unthinkingly reject the tradition, absorb Marxism, and regurgitate it on command in the various acceptable forms called political correctness: economic, political, sexual, racial, moral extremism in aid of breaking down and erasing the old, and building the new world utopia. That is, act like ideological robots without the sense that God gave an addled donkey. ~

The Dread Pirate Binks On Piracy

pirates

– ITEM: REAR ADMIRAL Barney Frank: Let’s spend TARP profits before taxpayers can get them.. Ahrr, me hearties!

– ITEM: What is Barney Frank up to now?

– ITEM: Corrupt black Congresscritters trying to avoid scrutiny

– ITEM: Congress: What Fiscal Crisis?

P1-AQ538_EXTRAV_NS_20090701192413

– ITEM: Democrats use TARP money to shore up personal fortunes

~ SURE I LIKE THE ‘romantic’ view of pirates.. not the whole rapine, murder, jolly rogering, and sea-going gangland thing so much. Strictly speaking, I guess Binky is more like a Privateer than a proper outlaw: honourable, nobel, good, but dangerous to foes and fools.

Sadly, it is apparent that the Obama Administration is nothing other and different than a massive coordinated pirate raid on the American government and people by the creeps, criminals, and corruptocrats of the Democrat and Republican collaborators. They need prison, not plunder; and shame, not credit for what they are doing.

Mid-level evil and theft by Pelosi and Co. has been going on for decades (check Pelosi & StarKist tuna gig via Google), and it’s part of every government, and human nature. What’s new is that the POTUS is a professional shyster and plunder expert via ACORN and his Ayer time in Chi-Town education scamming. What’s also new is that the pirates of the congress, senate, and wider government have grown bolder, and can’t be bothered to ever pretend to secrecy or wink-wink straight faces while looting the public and stuffing their own pockets.

pirates of the potomac

Someone like Mass-Dem Barney Frank is leading the entitled & invulnerable pack, and laughing in American’s face. His fingerprints are everywhere, and on every democrat-caused disaster from Fannie Mae & the Mortgage crisis, to the Stimulapalooza, and pushing for the Pirate Lord Obama as POTUS. Never missing a chance to profit and do what he wills, Frank is cause, symptom, and exemplar of the rot in DC, and the cynicism and/ or idiocy of Massachusetts voters. Mind you, they elected generations of the Kennedy Crime family to local, state, and federal office, so it’s in the tradition.

BarneyFrankChutzpah

Ultimately, the full tale of this pirate adventure will be told; what remains to be seen is if there are enough awake voters with spine and elected representatives with relatively untarnished hands to reform and renew the zombie/ pirate culture of the American ruling classes, and put the mutinous and piratical Obama, Pelosi, Frank, Dodd, ACORN bosses, and all the rest where they belong: in a pauper’s prison, after complete public exposé and proper indictments. Take names, kick ass, ignore party affiliation, let the chips fall where they may. Yes, it may mean time, money, less hours in front of the flatscreen– but that’s a feature, not a bug.

And to quote the noted cultural philosopher Michael Jackson, “It don’t matter if you’re black or white”. Race-carding scumbags like Obama and Conyers and company get no free pass merely because they aren’t honkies, or because their ancestors were enslaved. In fact, such characters give aspiring Americans of all colours a bad name for using their new privileges to engage in such open criminality, special rules, and abuse of power.

Is this really what your slain secular saint MLKing, Jr. had a dream about: that black politicians might one day be just as despicable and greedy as whites? Really?!? What would abolitionist figures like Frederick Douglass (1818-1895) have to say about these shameful antics?

Pirates of the Caribbean is a Disney fun-ride, become a not-bad set of movies– yet not any way to run a nation.

Utter freedom with no consequences; every pleasure, forbidden or not; every goodie, privilege, no expense spared, best health care ever, richest safest most entertained and comfortable society in all of human history– why, it’s not the result of thousands of years of suffering and effort and making a better world for the next generation, it’s all about giving the greatest people ever the treatment they deserve!

How else can you explain all the U.S. great-grandfathering of impossible debt with imaginary dollars against future generations? TARP, CAP-N-Trade, Monster Budgets, Socialist Health Care? It’s economic violence and rapine on a generational scale.

A lot of spoiled Boomers have tried to remake reality into their own image– so ruining the church, working hard to disassemble the family, education, gender & parenthood, freedom, and the viability of Western Civ itself, all because they are entitled, so smart, and simply amazing. Consequences be darned– we’re the best that ever was!

So Boomer Barack, Boomer Dubya, Boomer Clinton, Boomer Blair, have helped their fellow generational cohort to suck the marrow out of the built up civilizational moral, spiritual, and material capital received from our forefathers as if there was no yesterday nor any tomorrow, leaving a desert in their wake for others to clean up and rebuild. Wasn’t that a party?

After all, “What tomorrow?” Once the 45-64 year old Boomers pass– having drained social security, pensions, health care, and left the wreckage behind them– sub-Boomers hardly deserve to be worried about, do they? Indeed, Western Boomers also prevented and aborted the largest number of babies ever, in part to enhance ther personal and material comfort. Millions dead, for the higher purpose.

We’ve all been in a giant generation-war with a Boomer-wave of over-indulged narcissists for years now– and as they age, we’re getting the regurgitation of their youth-culture yet again. I liked the 60’s and 70s and 80s.. but endlessly remaking all the TV and movies and music? Gack! Have the rising generations since the mid-sixties NOTHING unique or interesting to say of their own? Will nobody except Boomers and their younger Mini-Me clones have a say in politics and the media and pop-culture?

What’s also interesting is that the battle in the U.S. is now increasingly between Boomers and Boomers, as Boomers Dubya and Obama wiped out a lot of nest eggs, and current Dem schemes will be taxing and stealing from everybody in sight– Boomers as well as future generations. Not so pleasant when the theft hits home today, huh?

It’s not too late, O fellow Boomers. I’ve devoted much of my adult life to giving back from what I’ve received, and building up and passing on and trying to leave things better than I found them. Perhaps in our remaining years, we can turn again to rebuild and restore some of what we’ve selfishly consumed and laid waste to, realizing that we are not kings and queens, but ordinary mortals with an accountability to the past, present, and future, above and beyond our precious self-esteem and pleasures and inwardness, and our earthly comforts and treasures.

Jihad

“Imagine if any other religion acted as does Islam — Christianity for example. If Christians made war upon cartoons? If Christians made war upon Buddhist statues? If Christians chopped off heads on camera? If Christians sent legions of suicide killers into schoolhouses? If Christians murdered their daughters for violations of ‘honor?’ If Christians boasted about blasting civilian airliners from the sky? If Christians were involved in almost every war on the planet? If Christians at the Vatican regularly stampeded and trampled to death hundreds of their own? If Christian youth made a sport of raping non-Christian girls? If Christians hunted down and killed all who tried to leave the faith? If Christians sent out hit squads to murder all who insulted the faith? If Christians around the globe jumped with glee after the towers fell? If Protestant and Catholic Christians engaged themselves in mutual slaughter? If Christians sexually mutilated their adolescent girls?”
