~ ITEM: Glenn Beck’s The New Republic: America’s Future (Day 5)
~ ITEM: RadioShack sets the record straight about Glenn Beck boycott
~ ITEM: BEGGING TO DIFFER: anointing narcissistic morons like Glenn Beck
~ I REALLY LIKE GLENN BECK: Sure he’s uber-passionate, complicated, and driven. He’s often bang-on, as well. Compared to the pablumized MSN, he’s utterly oracular. He’s got interesting pundits, facts, the essential questions, and he’s no cheerleader for old-style corrupt Republicans as such.
He’s currently doing a ‘New Republic‘ series, right after his recent ‘Common Sense’ bestseller (tho’ Wendy Sullivan is right: it properly bears listening to, as narrated by him). If you can’t watch him on FOX or listen in on radio, there’s his website and lots of YouTube vids.
The recent attempted hate-boycott against him has had the usual effect of free advertising, and making clear that the White House Thugocracy only wishes it were all-powerful. As usual, his critics attack him, but have no answer for the facts and arguments he deploys– and he’s a pretty good predictor of what comes next, given current conditions.
And though I’ve no use for his conversion to the Mormon cult, he doesn’t fill his programs or material with an insistence that we must all be Mormons– curiously, I’d say, the essential principles which he relies on are Judaeo-Christian, and Romano-Greek, and not the bizarre fictional history invented by Joseph Smith. The real roots of the West, and the experiment that is America.
And given the U.S. Constitution and First Amendment, even if Beck and his audience of ‘sick twisted freaks’ are 100% wrong and he is ‘Satan’s Mentally Challenged Younger Brother’– so what? In America, you’re allowed freedom of speech not on the basis of political or even factual correctness, but just because. That’s the important point. ~
~ ITEM: Are you an “Islamophobe”?
Lorna Saltzman’s Test
Do you favor equal rights and treatment of women and men?
Do you oppose stoning of women accused of adultery?
Do you favor mandatory education of girls everywhere?
Do you oppose slavery and child prostitution?
Do you support complete freedom of expression and the press?
Do you support the right of an individual to worship in her chosen religion?
Do you oppose government- and mosque-supported anti-Semitic publications, radio, TV and textbooks?
Do you oppose the wearing of burqas in public places, schools and courts?
Do you oppose segregation of the sexes in public places and houses of worship?
Do you oppose the death penalty for non-Muslims and Muslims who convert to another religion?
Do you oppose “honor” killings?
Do you oppose female genital mutilation?
Do you oppose forced sexual relations?
Do you oppose discrimination against homosexuals?
Do you support the right to criticize religion?
Do you oppose polygamy?
Do you oppose child marriage, forced or otherwise?
Do you oppose the quranic mandate to kill non-Muslims and apostates?
Do you oppose the addition of sharia courts to your country’s legal system?
Do you disagree with the quran which asserts the superiority of Islam to all other religions?
If you answered most or all of these affirmatively, you are a vile Islamophobe and deserve to be beheaded as the quran instructs.
If you answered one third or more of them affirmatively, you are a borderline Islamophobe and need to receive brainwashing to become a full-fledged dhimmi.
If you answered a quarter or fewer affirmatively, you need a few private lessons in dhimmitude to scrub yourself clean of those remnants of Islamophobia.
If you answered affirmatively to NONE of these, Congratulations! You are a worthy observant (radical–PC addition) Muslim and have a bright future vilifying Jews, torturing women or, inshallah, becoming a suicide bomber.” ~
~ ITEM: Protester– ‘This used to be America!’ Guard: ‘It ain’t no more, okay?’
~ BACK IN THE DAY, when my old ultra-liberal boss-bishop wanted to make stuff up and BS his way through it, he’d say authoritatively “It’s not canonical.” That is, it’s against church law.
Mind you, if you actually checked the official church law book (we all had one), there’d be no such law or principle to appeal to– it was short-hand for the petty-tyrant utterance known the world over “Because I Said So, Dammit!“
As I watched a recent YouTube vid of the racist black school security officer Wesley Cheeks, Jr. harrassing a law-abiding protester because the cop disliked his anti-Obama sign, I heard again “It’s not canonical.” But it gets better– Protester: ‘This used to be America!’ Guard: ‘It ain’t no more, okay?’
Full stop. No, Wesley. It’s not OK.
America is now– for some hard-core Dems & Obama-worshippers– a different country, where laws, freedoms, and criticism of dear leader are verboten.
“Did Officer Wesley Cheeks, Jr., Also “Act Stupidly”? Will the President say that about him, too?” asks Amy Alkon.
Yup. And unAmericanly, besides.
~ ITEM: Mark Steyn: Who cares about rights when you can screw around?
~ IF YOU’RE A REAL CHRISTIAN in politics, you know that your activities involve your soul, and eternity. Truth-telling, honesty, speaking out for the weak and needy, not going with the flow if that flow is evil, listening for God’s will and voice in his Word and the teaching of the Church, and the Christian conscience– all essentials.
God holds us responsible– great or small– for our words & deeds, our opportunities and obedience. The demented Grandfather Deity so popular these days– all dogs and people we love go to heaven, right?– is not worried about the fussy stuff. So do what you want, and he will wave indulgently and give you eternal life no matter the nature of your soul, loves, or sins.
That’s not the God of the Bible, Old or New Testament. Aside from money, Jesus mentions Hell more often than any other topic. That the way is broad that leads to destruction; that not all are sheep, rather than goats.
No judgement? It’s all relative? Then why should we be surprised if politicians and those in authority lie, cheat, steal, fudge the facts, and do whatever is necessary to stay elected, keep power, and stay on top.
It’s not that those things didn’t happen in the past: but with a sense of judgement, consequences, possible repentance, an objective morality grounded in the nature of God himself, and not the ever-shifting mores of the moment, at least you can appeal to a higher standard, and know that it is written into our nature, and that right is right and wrong is wrong.
His service is perfect freedom: thy kingdom come, thy will be done (by me). The idea that humans have a soul, a nature, an eternal destiny, that we may be redeemed by eternal love through Jesus Christ, God’s Son, and therefore become partakers of the divine nature? Here’s a high and wonderful bit of joyful news, which defies the consumerist or corporatist reduction of us to eaters, or faceless drones.
Oddly enough, as Mark Steyn notes, the modern revolution of irresponsible freedoms has left us more enslaved, less satisfied, uncertain, bored, exhausted.
Should we really be surprised that human freedoms and dignity are under threat when we are told by our experts that we are eco-tumours, expense-items, disposable before birth and in old age, mindless sheep to be corralled this way and that for the good of the masters?
If God is over all, then we have eternity, destiny, and his mighty will working in all and through all. If not, then we are a momentary spark in a hurricane, with neither meaning, nor enduring existence.
Our souls demand justice– if not for ourselves, then others. In a secularity, that becomes judging the environmentally impure, the fat and unhealthy, the ideologically icky, the uppity and non-conformist, the unlike, those who buck the almighty Zeitgeist. Have you noticed? Liberals are mighty judgemental– against racists, homophobes, conservatives, islamphobes, and all the rest.
It’s pretty nice to be able to point the finger, but never look to yourself– which is the actual point of Christ’s warning about judging lest we be judged. Get your soul right with God, then you will be moved by love and purity to help and not condemn your fellow sinner. ~
Just sayin’, is all. ~
~ ITEM: Other Odd Words
~ UNLIKE SOME ‘MODERNIZERS’ of the English language, I like all of it– even the weird and irritating bits like “I before E except in these 47 words”. Or the extra letters and odds and sods which are part of the glorious and messy development of the mother tongue.
I even like rump-words– not, not euphemisms for the human fundAment or posterior, but those leftover words whose original form has fallen out of use. What’s the opposite of feckless? Disgruntled? Reckless? Disgusted?
Some of these words are very old, or connected with one of the root-languages flowing into English– feckless is a 400 year old Scots word, having to do with ‘effect’. Feckful– very effective, energetic, responsible. A few more:
Feckless (Scots call an effective person “feckful”)
Intrepid (although trepidation)
Reckless (cf. careless)
Unkempt (can a barber make one “kempt?”)
Languages– like people– are complicated, interesting, full of history and meaning, and signs of how and where it formed is there in the words themselves. Here in Eastern Canada, surviving traces of Irish, English, Scots, German, and other immigrant languages from the 1700s onwards. I even remember one dear old lady from Newfoundland who still used ye & thee in her family circle. A little bit of her ancestry still speaking 200 years later, or whenever her people came to the new world.
Sayings, stories, ordinary speech– these are good things, and should be treasured and passed on vs. TV-speak or, worse, bureaucratese. It is no mistake that in Orwell’s 1984, or in the USSR, Or EuroLand, it is language that is first enslaved to political purposes: neatened, dumbed down, made bland and uncommunicative and indirect and dishonest.
DumbSpeak leads to DumbThought, and that leads to Human Rights Commissions, bureaucratic malice, and intellectual bullying.
The whole mother tongue: be gruntled with nothing less. ~

~ IT’S TIME FOR CONSERVATIVE PEOPLE to put up, or shut up. Support conservative causes, buy conservative books, subscribe to the magazines, donate to our various online causes, and do it now.
One thing liberals and radicals do is put their money where their mouth is. We need to develop a habit of doing that, along with supporting our religious and other essential charities as we find them near us.
Yesterday, I signed on at the intro level of $5 monthly to Pajamas Media. It’s an awesome service, and there are higher levels of support for those who can afford it. They feature folks like Stephen Crowder, Bill Whittle, Andrew Klavan, Roger Simon, Hugh Hewitt, and Mr. & Mrs. Instapundit– Glenn & Helen Reynolds.
It’s not enough to make noises, complain, and vote once in a while– as we spend on TVs or vacations or whatnot. These are hard times for many people– so we must support good conservative folk in their work– especially given the discriminatory bullying some conservative U.S. magazines are getting via the partisan US Post Office, which has been loading up extra mailing-charges on anti-Obama print media. No kidding. Ask Human Events.
Again, if you’re in the area, sign up for the Halifax Free Speech Conference with Ezra, Binks & Company in September. Spread the word. Expect to be pleasantly surprised: the word has still to get out to a lot of good-willed folk.
Thanks for listening to my rant. ~
~ ITEM: Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, son of Libyan fuhrer Muammar Gaddafi, claims the release of Lockerbie bomber/Libyan agent Abdelbaset Ali Al Megrahi was tied to a trade deal
~ ITEM: The Shame of Scotland, the Shame of the United Kingdom, the Shame of the Civilized World
~ ITEM: Scottish culture in Canada
~ SPECIAL DISCOUNTS FOR MUSLIMS— Lockerbie, I mean. 270 dead, then poor baby terror-guy gets let our with backroom deals? Shame on Scotland, and all of us.
Of course, Canada did much the same in releasing one of the Sikh rat-bastard conspirators, Inderjit Singh Reyat, who helped to blow up Air India Flight 182. “In all, 329 people perished, among them 280 Canadians and 22 Indian nationals.” He served 5 years. That’s 5.5 days per death, according to the dysfunctional injustice theories of our Trudeaupian injustice system. That and the endless silly-buggery of the trial and the inquest into same: a fine example of liberal hate and injustice in action. Whole families wiped out, for Sikh snits over past Indian injustices against them, real or imagined.
That would all be part of the delightful Canucki multi-culti quilt, right? Bringing unique hates and feud to a new country, and not only using this country as a basis for funding the battle back home, but bringing the fights here.
Not to be totally hateful and Albanophile, but most Scots came to the new world and made something of it and themselves, even if they started out with nothing, and tangled North American forest to start with. Had they come here and simply continued Jacobite wars and hate, they would be rightly regarded as idiotic, and wasting their time. They would also have gone to jail. Names? Simon Fraser. Samuel Cunard. Sir John A. MacDonald, David Mackenzie, Sanford Fleming, George Simpson, John Buchan, Lord Dalhousie… and that’s just few big names, not to mention the many more ordinary hard-working Scottish folk who found a new start in Canada.
That’s where we betray our new Canadians with the bigotry of low expectations. We allow them to act as if there was no better way to be than as they are. That, in turn, is because officialdom has lost the courage of any convictions except this: that Western civilization sucks, and all others are better than ours. Even when our country is not rife with civil unrest, factional feuds, violent governments, and vile customs and traditions.
Thus, the reasonable and peaceable parts of the immigrant community are held hostage in both directions, by gutless officialdom, and the extremists in their own community. Unwilling to condemn the condemnable, we end up condemning others, and weakening Canadian society as a whole, by making factionalism and tribalism the norm, not something bad. Lowest common Canadianism, indeed.
Bink’s own ancestry is Scots, English, Dutch-German, Moldovan, Portuguese, and other odds and sods. All old Europeans, come to North America between the 1750s up to the 1950’s for a new start in a new land. Old & new blood, immigrants all, and I’m proud of the nations they built and handed on to give their descendants a better future, not a place to exploit, hate, and take for granted– either by official political correctness, or ungrateful immigrants. ~
~ ITEM: Ann Coulter’s new column, plus new video
~ I CONFESS THAT I took soft-con warnings on Ann Coulter without knowing much about her. She’s mean, too much, sharp-tongued, etc., so on and so forth.
Then I read here’ Treason’ [Treason: Liberal Treachery from the Cold War to the War on Terrorism, 2004] at Binks-Dads lair, and found her foot-note stuffed book was clever, concise, detailed, and factually fair. Actually, I’m even a bit of a fan, now, though I’ve not read any other books yet. Maybe it was her best, and the rest fall short, but still.
Sometimes, as a Canadian, I can be instinctively over-fairminded, a wimpi-con, a Frumite waffler taking time to shoot in both directions in the political wars of the West. I’m not advocating teh crazy, but at least standing for what we claim to stand for, and being willing to speak out and take a few lumps for the same.
We’ve been convinced by Trudeaupianism that the main Canadian virtues are niceness, and docility, and an endless ability to apologize for evil. Nonsense. That’s sheepish socialism speaking, and not the virtues that built the nation, or which can keep her going and growing. True, as heirs all of Scots attitude of inward pride, and an economy with words, we don’t blatt and cheer ourselves endlessly, but ask people elsewhere how Canadians are distinct, and they will be able to answer more clearly than the CBC would have it. Canuckis? Tough.. fair-minded.. funny.. generous.. determined.. ironical.. not enamoured of stuffed shirts.. leaving things better than we found them. That’s hardly the same as jelly-spined multicultism and pc self-hate.
So huzzah for Ann Coulter, who reminds us that we need to learn and relearn and pass on the facts, un-leftified thought and history, and be willing to insist on them, because lives and souls and whole nations hang in the balance. A nation can die without noticing the fact, until it is too late, because a nation is first and foremost a complex set of agreed-upon principles and social agreements, extended in time and space. When people stop believing in the idea that was and should be Canada, she is wounded, and we are all threatened. Ideas matter, because upon them is founded what is built up around us and within us.
There are worse things than having people dislike you or your opinions, and to call you names– like dying the death of a thousand cuts which is the due of every coward. Certain Lefty members of my own immediate and extended family have tolerantly insisted that I’m a hatemonger, racist, extremist, and a whole long list of unpleasantries– and felt it their duty and business to so inform me. Not counter my concerns and arguments with their own, but with name-calling.
How typical, and how tolerant. ~
~ AS WE ALL KNOW, guns kill people, and people with guns kill people, and bullets kill guns, and yada yada. Mind you, when I was in the U.S. last month, shooting with a sweet Kimber .45, a .22 rifle, and a pump-action shotgun (no major FAC/ gun-training/ police list, thanks, just the shooting I did as a kid with the Binks-Dad), and the kids learning the .22, all I saw was well-trained folk carefully using guns for sport and self-defence– whole families, even. Tiny kinder-.22s up to AR-15s and .357 magnums (too loud, thanks).
Given the way Canadian gun-haters talk about it, the U.S. should have been a wild-west shootout. Not so much.
Now my kids know gun-drill, safety, proper shooting, trigger discipline, and actually hitting a target. The gun has been demystified, it’s no longer a scary dangerous bad thing, but a tool only for certain purposes– including self/ home-defence.
Otherwise, my boys might be like so many young Canadians, who know almost nothing about guns. Then they might be like the feminized and terrorized men who abandoned their women class-mates of the École Polytechnique de Montréal to the tender mercies of the murderer Gharbi and his little.22.
Taken simply, guns are part of the panoply of freedom, along with free speech, representative democracy, and the peaceful aspects of society and civilization. They are the stop-gap against crime, and tyranny, and a tool for hunting and self-sufficiency– and that’s why radicals always seek to take guns away from law-abiding citizens, or severely complicate their ownership and use. Government must have only dependent children in utopia.
Even if you choose not to own one, take lessons, go to a gun-range, and learn about guns, and consider why they are part of your freedom, and not simply scary-bad danger things to be left in the hands of police, army, and criminals, instead of law-abiding citizens.
Maybe it’s time to get a few guns into this house. ~

~ ITEM: Warning: MoveOn.Org, SEIU, ACORN To Infiltrate ObamaCare Protesters And Act Like Asses In Front Of Lap Dog Media
~ THE REPUBLICANS need to remake themselves and get rid of the RINOs and the corruption before anybody will vote them back in. The Townhalls are not simply anti-Dem or contra Obama– they’re also against the system that got the strongest country in the world into a cool $9 Tril debt, and entangled in every kind of economic stupid.
In that sense, all conservatives should be thankful for Obama– he’s shown the utopian dream for what it is, and what the modern extremo-Dems (the Soros-bought party) are all about. The old-style communist/ fascist tactics of thugs, bald-faced lying, personal destruction, direct political interference from the White House against individuals and corporations, nascent brownshirts via an alphabet-soup of interconnected groups and unions. Obama and his handlers have pulled out all the stops.
Let’s use, not lose, this God-given opportunity! ~

No fuss, no self-pity. We’re just hoping the gazebo doesn’t take the deck with it.

”…It’s not an outrage. It’s surely not a death panel. But it is subtle pressure applied by society through your doctor. And when you include it in a health care reform whose major objective is to bend the cost curve downward, you have to be a fool or a knave to deny that it’s intended to gently point you in a certain direction, toward the corner of the sick room where stands a ghostly figure, scythe in hand, offering release.”
~ The Krauthammer ~
“The real truth is that the Obama administration is professional at bullying, as we have witnessed with ACORN at work during the presidential campaign. It seems to me they are sending down their bullies to create fist fights among average American citizens who don’t want a government-run health care plan forced upon them. So I ask again.

~ NOT TRYING TO THINK THE WORST of American radicals, but something keeps nagging me on healthcare. If you’ve got political panels running health in the proposed paradise of the ObamaCare universe, what’s to stop ideologues from rationing care on the basis of votes? Or Red State/ Blue State?
After all, if merely opposing the commands of the Obamessiah gets one labelled a hate-monger, extremist, unAmerican, unChristian, etc. ad nauseam; or when more Republican GM dealers get closed over Democrat dealers; then you must be very trusting indeed to assume Rahm Emanuel, Sibelius & Co. will be untempted and impartial with health-rationing.
It’s not just a matter of being honest, it’s appearing honest, and not putting oneself in the positon to abuse power. Since the Obama regime as shown itself more than willing to flout law, custom, common-sense and decency in the desparate pursuit of utopia, I’d not put any such abuse past them.
The American system is already riven with battles for government pork and earmarks and special treatment based on politics– how would health-care rationing escape the same process? ~
