Free Mark Steyn 2013!


“What I always objected to in Canada about Section 13 was its casual contempt for the citizenry, the same contempt on display today in Washington and London. Like Theresa May, Justice Kennedy would rather impute motive than engage argument. The need to delegitimize those who disagree does indeed “demean this institution”, and is profoundly disturbing.”

~ ALTHOUGH TEH Binks is a long-time internet news & blog guy (started 1995-6), it wasn’t until the Mark Steyn/ Ezra Levant cases in late 2007 that I turned from the goldfish pond of Anglican news to the sea of Canadian politics, free speech, and all the stuff you see below and in the archives.

“Sons of Gondor, of Rohan. My brothers. I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me! A day may come, when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of Fellowship, but it is not this day! An hour of wolves and shattered shields when the age of men comes crashing down! But it is not this day! This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good earth, I bid you, stand, men of the West!”

~ Aragorn son of Arathorn, called Elessar, the Elfstone, Dúnadain, the heir of Isildur Elendil’s son of Gondor.

Some Esplainin’ To Do

~ YOU WILL NOTICE that Binks pre-insults some of the bloggers and links below. This is for the effort-saving convenience of any progressive and/ or radical visitors to the blog, who prefer pre-judged labels, insults, and slogans to the retrograde and antiquated notion of “Actually Shutting Up And Listening To What Someone Has To Say” which may veer dangerously close to “Actually Learning Something New”.

A little while back, when many of you had stopped visiting, I wrote about Mr. “Frigging Beer” Cyber Ubersturmfuhrer Interweb Generalissimo Keith Alexander. Now, I’ve been proven right that he’s not on the side of the hobbits and free people of the West.

Why is Binky excited by this?

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Teaser Trailer

Well yes, partly because he’s a hobbit-nerd… but even more so since even poorly-done Tolkien is infinitely better than nasty old George R.R. Martin done really really well. ~

Old Dusty Silly Stuff

~ ITEM: A writ of habeas corpus; the Magna Carta of 1215

~ FOR THE CURRENT American regime, it would seem that every American.. heck, everybody in their drone-reach.. is considered an enemy of the O-state, even proven otherwise. After all, liberty under law and all the laws supporting it? Very old and tired ideas, written on old scrolls and stuff. “Innocent Until Prove Guilty”? “No unlawful detention”?.. just cannot meet the needs of our time.

This Is What A Free Person Sounds Like

~ Suffer not the old King under any name!: “I am not here as a serf or vassal. I am not begging my lords for mercy. I’m a born free American woman, wife, mother and citizen. And I’m telling my government that you’ve forgotten your place. It’s not your responsibility to look out for my well-being, and to monitor my speech. It’s not your right to assert an agenda. Your post, the post that you occupy, exists to preserve American liberty. You’ve sworn to perform that duty. And you have faltered.”

Irreconcilables & Contradictories

An uncle and grandparents of Lee Rigby weep after laying a wreath near the scene of his killing outside the barracks of the British Army's 2nd Battalion The Royal Regiment of Fusiliers in Woolwich, southeast London

~ ITEM: Woolwich Bloody Beheader Thinks He’s Calling the Shots in the Infidels’ Courtroom; London Jihadist Who Beheaded Soldier Appears In Court Clutching A Koran, Blowing Kisses; As Time Goes By– We Infidels Have Grown More and More Clueless

~ ITEM: Would-Be Train Bridge Bomber– Toronto Via Rail terror suspect wants Qur’an-guided lawyer.. “Esseghaier says the last potential lawyer he dealt with from prison told him in writing that he was unable to change the reference of his judgment “from the criminal code to the holy Qu’ran

~ ITEM: Khomeinist Zafar B. Calls for Islam to Assume “Its Natural Dominant Role”

~ ITEM: How the Boston Bombing Suspect Became a U.S. Citizen

~ IMAGINE, IF you will, that you are a resistance-fighter on trial by the Nazis. You refuse to acknowledge the legitimacy of the false-messiah Fuhrer, his illegitimate powers, his cooked-up laws and crooked courts, your court-appointed lawyer, who believes you guilty and undeserving of any defence.

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.
