Why is Binky excited by this?
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: It’s relatively easy for the US government to follow its citizens’ digital trails. And most of the time, you will never know
~ ITEM: Why The NDAA Bill is Even Scarier Than You Thought
~ 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.
Slow-Building The Prison-State
Legally, you have the new immoral and unconstitutional laws like the NDAA, which have removed all of the ages-old legal protections which Americans take for granted, and still assume are somehow in place. Miranda Rights, as seen on every TV cop-show ever? “You have the right to….” Not if POTUS says not. That’s a tyrant.
It started under Bush, and Obama has taken it viral: he left a big weapon sitting on the desk of the Oval Office, for Obama to take up and use for HopenChange. Like so many 20th century tyrants, Obama won’t leave a paper-trail, a pile of smoking guns, or a confession. Off the record.. secret.. need to know..
Not Paying Attention
Taking things for granted.. that things are just that way, and always will be so.. is a privilege and sin of comfortable and safe times, with normally-corrupt politicians and technology. Taking it for granted that the state loves you and all is well when they are not? A way to make yourself a helpless sheep if the laws and policies of an out-of-control government have their way with formerly free societies.
We are on the very cusp of some scary possibilities– and we cannot even take for granted that the Providence of God will save us from ourselves: sometimes, we proud and stubborn and negligent humans can only learn the hard way.
Let’s hope it’s not too hard. ~
Hilary White on the demolition of marriage in the UK:
For Britain’s upcoming demolition of the legal institution of marriage, we have the Catholic Church of England and Wales, the Magic Circle, to thank:
This from our friend Terrence Weldon:
“At the second reading, there were many Catholic MPs, from all parties, who voted in favour, and even spoke out publicly, some stressing that they were supporting equality not in spite of their faith, but because of it. I’ve not yet seen or compiled a comprehensive list of Catholic votes in favour, but we can confidently expect that the pattern was repeated for the final reading. During the debate, some commentators echoed this tweet by Ben Bradshaw:
Really superb & very moving speech in #equalmarriage debate by my Roman Catholic colleague @CatMcKinnellMP
Newcastle North MP Catherine McKinnell decribed how her support was influenced by traditionally Catholic strong family values – and a gay brother.
… ‘It has been a journey in which I have had to question my faith and understanding of the world, but I believe that the experience has not only kept my faith intact but renewed and enriched it.'” ~
World War [Jihad] Next?
~ ITEM: Syria: Bad Guys VS. Badder Guys and Soon to be Our War
~ ITEM: It’s Probably Nothing— Putin offers to put Russian troops on the Golan Heights to serve as UN peacekeepers
~ ITEM: Syrian jihadist ‘rebels’ did this to a 15-year-old boy, yet Senator John McCain wants to send our military to help them; Rand Paul slams John McCain for offering to arm al-Qaeda terrorists in Syria.
~ WELL LOOK AT even more imaginary American tax-dollars at work, helping the new Nazis! The U.S. will be training and arming the Muslim Brohood Al Qaeda troops in Syria. Then, if they overthrow Assad, then you have a viciously evil well-armed & trained force on the borders of Turkey, Jordan, Iraq, Lebanon… and Israel. Faux-POTUS Obama is NOT on our side.
(a) Obama took America to semi-War on behalf of the Muslim Brotherhood in Libya.
(b) He has pumped billions, plus tanks & planes from the U.S. to Egypt.
(c) At every turn, he has misled, lied, obfuscated, and deceived as to his goals in the failed Arab Spring (neo-Caliphate or Muslim Brotherhood takeover of North African and Middle Eastern nations).
(d) If the Muslim Brotherhood wants Jordan, do you really think that Obama will FINALLY draw the line in the sand there?
(e) If Congress knows all about this, (i) where is the debate, (ii) where is the discussion with Congressional representatives and their people (i.e., the American public)?
Anybody who dared criticize his pro-radical adventuring in Libya was fired or out-placed (witness several military commanders). Qafaffi & Mubarak were allies, if bastards. Is Assad worse than the MuzzBroz?. America stabbed them in the back, just like Obama has made it clear to Israel that he`s not behind them (except with a dagger).
Please, someone, prove me wrong. Please, Leftists who yowl for the U.S. to get out of Iraq and Afghanistan, speak up. ~
Behind First Principles
~ ITEM: Great Commandment
Via Mike S. Adams:
“Student: The federal government should not be in the business of legislating morality. Response: You’re right. There should be a federal law against it.”
~ WHENCE COMES law? Morality? Society? All of it?
David Mamet is mostly right as far as he takes it in his conversion-book The Secret Knowledge– it all predates government, or nanny-state, or law courts. Much of the wisdom law of nature and human interaction is handed on after ages-long trial and error; antiquity is at least one test of such things. Yet ancient laws may prove unjust; by what standard?
On These Two Laws
For the Jews, and their Christian cousins, law is of God– both the inward moral law of conscience, and the revealed law of the Ten Commandments, and the completion of the law in Jesus Christ. Thus:
Master, which is the great commandment in the law?” Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”
That is, the law is inwardly written, and comes outwardly: moral education is precisely forming a conscience in due order with goodness and truth. Yet the three-year-old self asks “Where does all that come from?”
Ultimately, it is part of what it means for us to be made in the iamge & likeness of God– in terms of our reason, and will, and love. God is not another being in the universe– he is Being itself; he is not alive– he is Life itself. God is not good: he is goodness itself.
This is what TechTopians & Jihadis forget– God is alive, free, untrapped within either “The Historical Process” or “The Sharia Forever”. This is what we all forget– that the source of all things is God; that the good things are grounded in him, and al lhe has given mankind over many ages; that the tried, tested, and true things are not granted and preserved by almighty intrusive government, nor by sword and blood-sacrifice unto Allah.
It’s what Westminster, the mother of Parliaments is forgetting by legislating impossible things like pseudogamous same-sex “marriage”; it’s what the surveillance state is forgetting in imagining that perfect slavery is the best freedom.
God. Like Aslan, he is free; like Gandalf, he is the most dangerous thing imaginable; like both, he is good, and true, and beautiful, and we have once choice in this life that really matters forever. ~
The Reality Of D-Day
~ IN THE HARROWING first 20 minutes of Saving Private Ryan, we see what the young men of the Allied Landing Forces had to go through to get onto the beaches. Thing is, new studies over the past few years (and the records of the time) reveal that Hitler’s “Atlantic Wall” was not the beach, but included carefully constructed, hidden and interlocked bunkers, tunnels, trenches, artillery, overlapping fields of fire, communications, and other sneaky works up to 5 and even 10 miles deep in some places.
Thus, the Battle For Normandy was much longer and more bloody than anyone on the Allied side had expected or planned for; casualties and troop-losses were very much higher; and unlike the static defences such as The Siegfried Line, or the various German defensive lines across Italy in that theatre of war, this was a deep defense.
There are three things to be thankful for, in looking backward on what could have been a great defeat for the Allies: (1) Hitler essentially took direct control of the Battle For France; (2) he forbade retreat even to establish a stronger defense, reform units, or save troops or equipment for another day; (3) the Germans had developed nothing like the Allied artillery techniques, which allowed mass-concentrations of artillery over a huge area, when and as needed. In many cases, according to Canadian author and WW2 forward artillery observer George Blackburn, it was only the artillery that saved the day on many occasions, when the weaker Allied tanks were wrecked, troops exhausted, and the Germans fanatically reforming for another counter-assault.
For your freedom, and theirs, and all future generations. Let us not forget, cast away, or carelessly drop their costly gift for us, won against such unknown and overwhelming odds. ~

Just Say No– Again & Again
~ ITEM: Cultural Imperialism: The Sexual Rights Agenda
~ ITEM: Etymology – Heterosexuality – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
~ SORRY, BUT NO. I’m not a heterosexual.
I’m just a man. Husband, father, son, uncle, neighbour, friend.. but still and all, not a hyper-sexualized category in the modern madness. Man. Homo sapiens sapiens.
To the inferno with the criminal Kinsey and his ilk, the militant sexualizers of our children and culture, the predators of all sorts seeking to defile and besmirch and radicalize. Of all the many sins and horrors this dying and rotting civilization has inflicted, Jesus warns that the hurting and leading into sin of the young ones will doom us to the doomiest doom in doomsville.
So no: I’m just a man. ~
