~ ITEM: ‘May God have mercy on his soul’: Canadian arch-abortionist Henry Morgentaler dead at 90

~ ITEM: ProWoman ProLife » On the death of Henry Morgentaler

~ ITEM: Morgentaler has died, and so will we one day: what will our legacy be?; Morgentaler is gone, but we’re taking back Morgentaler’s Canada

~ ITEM: Heniek “Henry” Morgentaler (March 19, 1923 — May 29, 2013)

~ INFAMOUS CANUCKI abortionist Henry Morgentaler has died.. I hope he turned to God as he did so, even in the last seconds of awareness. He has a very long list of death, suffering, lies, and betrayal of his religion, and deliberately slain unborn boys and girls to answer for, unto a higher power that does not obey lawyers.

It is beyond ironic (a) that he lived a very long life, unlike his victims, (b) was a doctor who proudly betrayed his Hippocratic oath, (c) that he was a Holocaust-survivor, of a regime which promoted abortion, infanticide, murder of the handicapped, political opponents, Jews, and other ‘undesirables’, forcing doctors and hospitals to enforce totalitarianism, and to serve political ends. Then he brought death to countless ‘undesired’, fought to overthrow provincial laws to protect the unborn, and did more for creating the current status quo (no abortion law in Canada since ’88) than any other individual.

Quit Yer Bitchin’!

~ YES, MY DEAR EVER-growing army of pre-dead minions, 2011 was a sucktastic year for your glorious leader & inspiration, not to mention for the Free Canuckistan blog, and thus the blogging world, the internets, and planet earth more generally.

Fiathful folks have been praying, I’ve been praying, and at least some of my blog-mojo is returning.. in fits and starts.

Link-gathering is still a bit much, but my brain has started to cogitate mini-essays, for what they are worth. I will try to start linkery again, since therein lies my best skill, and much inspiration for essays on The State Of Things According To Binks, and Binks Doesn’t Have Humble Opinions comments on the links.

It’s been a very rough year, and I want to thank Mark & Ezra & Kathy & Arnie & Squirrel & and all kinds of other blog-buddies for keeping in touch, being encouraging, and sweetly lying about the fact that they miss me online and stuff.

Thing is, it’s hard to shut up, because I love life, justice, the dignity of people in need or suffering, and telling the truth in the face of overweening power, lies, ignorance, and evil.

I think I can, I think I can…. ~


Spengler & The Rest Of The Story

10,000’s of Muslims Convert to Christianity in UK.

~ ITEM: It’s Not the End of the World, It’s Just the End of You: The Great Extinction of the Nations

~ JUST FINISHED a very fine book, It’s Not the End of the World, It’s Just the End of You: The Great Extinction of the Nations by David P. Goldman. It’s a re-edited collection of his online essays, written under his nom de web, Spengler.

Fans of Mark Steyn will find his thesis familiar and congenial– societies which lose their faith begin a long suicide by failing to reproduce. The consequences of economic, political, spiritual and cultural wreckage begins to pile up. Death haunts everything.

No Invisible Means OF Support

As in recent essays and his most recent book, Steyn’s recognition of the spiritual dimensions of the current crisis of the West find a fuller explication in Spengler– he asserts the central place of Israel in past and present world history, and our spiritual and historical self-understanding. By articulating the effects of the loss of faith in the West, Spengler also completes the punditry which would only argue economics, clash of civilizations, or the political of the recent past, present, and what lies ahead.

His prescription for America is worth the read– stop clinging to Keynsianism, and stop trying to reproduce the 1980s, because the U.S. is an aging nation, and needs to re-invest in entrepreneurship, savings, and exports to the rest of the world, unless it wants to stay in the mire of endless down-cycles, and profligate government intervention in the economy.

The Muslim World’s In Trouble, Too

Finally, the same birth dearth and aging population afflicts the Muslim world, and Spengler issues a stern warning: most Middle Eastern nations face economic and demographic collapse withing 30-40 years; there is currently a large mass of young men available for warfare, suicide bombings, and other jihadist assertiveness, and they know that it’s now or never (at least in 21st century terms).

Spengler thus warns that the greatest danger to the West is in the next 30 years or so, before Islamic nations are confronted with a massive aging population, and not enough young people to support them, on top of moribund economies, a decline in oil production, and the usual political nightmares. Europe in particular stands at risk, as a self-emptying secularist paradise in a death-spiral of dying economies, and aging/ decreasing populations, and less and less faith in anything, let alone God.

This is a dense book, like cheesecake rather than a Twinkie, and bears close attention, and smallish doses for the ordinary reader. There are many more themes and issues addressed in these essays, and each one is worth the price of admission.

So Finally, And In Conclusion

Must read, Binky rating of 9.0; to be read frutifully alongside Mark Steyn’s latest book, 2011’s After America: Get Ready for Armageddon. ~


Back In The Day

~ MY ESTRANGED UNCLE built plastic models, and taught me to love them, too. A lot of my hard-earned paperboy cash went for models– WW2 ships & aircraft, Star trek, Star Wars, Tanks.. though decent painting & decals were not part of my skill-set.

In the spirit of not ranting about evil, but living life and pointing out real talent, witness predead Binks-minion Warren Zoell, model-maker (plastic, wood, scratch-built) extra-ordinaire. Wow.

Take a look, enjoy, surf his website, and appreciate skills that sadly have faded amongst the young, as the devil XBox and texting and interwebs vaccums up life, leaving little in return.

As a fan of Patrick O’Brian, I especially like the HMS Surprise (wood) finished this Summer; the USS Arizona model (plastic); and a wonderful, whimsical space-train (scratch-built) from Jules Verne’s “From The Earth To The Moon”.

Warren’s commentary on each model, and related history & facts are alone worth the price of admission, plus all the pictures from various angles of each project. Many TV-shows and movies have spawned fine kits, many of which are to be found on his site. He writes:

“Almost everyone at one time or another has built or at least attempted to build a model at least once in their lives. Model building in my view is quite possibly one of the most complex and I believe is one of the most rewarding art forms their is (some people would call it a craft but we’ll just ignore them). To build a model can be easy, to build a model well even from the most simplest kits can be the result of years of study and practice. Basically model building is the art of recreation of reality and fantasy brought down in miniature. The more effort and attention to detail put into building a model the greater the reward, worth all the endless hours put into these works of art.”

But More About Me

Models (and yes, I even did balsa-wood planes) are great tools to teach attention, patience, artistry, step-by-step attention, and a lot of basic life-skills. They are cool, and aid imagination, and remembering stories and history and the like; and the nerd-spazz factor of holding in your hands a reproduction of a famous plane or ship or spacecraft which you made? Priceless.

Not sure if Teh Binks will be getting back into kit-modelling in wood or plastic, but Warren’s projects and talent are an inspiration, and bring back fond memories of many hours spent with a new kit, an x-acto knife, plastic glue, paint, and sometimes inscrutable instructions.

Wanna Be A Nazi?

~ ITEM: Who goes Nazi?, By Dorothy Thompson

~ CAPTAIN AMERICA is coming out on fillum (in spiffy DDD)– with teh battle against.. Nazis. Not Jihadists, nor Communists, nor Frankfurt School zombies.. just the ever-dependable Hitlerian uber-mensch.

The Third Reich has a seemingly endless afterlife in movies, video-games, and human-rights dialogue. The only protection against Hitlerian horrors? Big Mama Government, courtesy of tax-supported Steve Harper, The Lynch mob in Ottawa, and Ontario’s Big Babsy Hall.

Who Goes Nazi??

As Dorothy Thompson’s kick-ass August 1941 article notes, the Nazi-thing is partly about circumstance, opportunity, and temperament.

“It’s fun- a macabre sort of fun– this parlor game of “Who Goes Nazi?”… Believe me, nice people don’t go Nazi. Their race, color, creed, or social condition is not the criterion. It is something in them. Those who haven’t anything in them to tell them what they like and what they don’t-whether it is breeding, or happiness, or wisdom, or a code, however old-fashioned or however modern, go Nazi….”

Read the whole thing.. it’s frighteningly relevant.

Obey, Or Else

We gotcher un-nice peoples galore: Richard Warman.. Barbara Hall.. ‘Niffer Lynch.. Krista Daley.. and all their apologists. They squawk about impending Nazism, imagining themselves human rights Indiana Joneses.. whilst playing Gestapo, legal & media bullying, social engineering, and many of the good old maneuvres from the Nazi/ Communist playbook. Heck, Mizz Lynch is famous for travels around the world for hors deuvres with the modern-day equivalents of Nazis from tinpot second and third world regimes– whilst bashing her critics in the semi-free and partly democratic land of Canuckistan. We gots nasty smiley-Nazis.. minus the stylish 1940s Germanic trappings.

Meanwhile, Big Steve has his majority, and we await any sort of action on the crimes & misdemeanors of the human rights regimes across Canada. Free Dominion is getting sued again.. Shaidle & Catfur are still under legal burdens.. former comedian & thought criminal Steve Earle is supposed to now conjure up cash for a Supreme Court appeal of his BC Human rights conviction.

Plus ça change, plus c’est la effing meme chose. ~


And Could It Be?

~ ITEM: The Onion— ‘These Last Two Are Gonna Be Real Turds,’ George R.R. Martin Assures Fans

~ AFTER AN E-SMACK upside the head from Ghost Flea Nick Packwood, Teh Binks went and bought book 1 of the Game of Thrones series. Loved it. Then bought the other 3. Loving them. Better than the HBO TV series, actually.

So.. um– well, er: it may possibly be that mistakes were made, errors took place, and Teh Binks was theoretically wrong about George R.R. Martin. But not terribly, terribly wrong.

Lotsa Style

Martin’s no Tolkien or Lewis.. more in the style of historical fiction about the 1300s, with some captivating fantasy elements and chapters named for the point-of-view character. Lotsa style.

Unlike the HBO series, in the book the naughty bits are here and there, but not nasty HBO-style.. nor is there a prominent gay character (now all but officially required by Hollywood & TV political correctness, to remind the masses “Not That There’s Anything Wrong With That“).

Almost There Yet?

The entire series can be slow, unrewarding, and repetitious– it’s 4500 pages long, after all.. and if I never again read about another graphic de-nippling, or the words “boiled leather”, it will be too soon. Plus, George R.R. Martin seems to enjoy butchering his characters overmuch.. he’s one of those authorial sadists who exercises a nasty power over his hapless cast of people to “up the excitement”. Witty bodice-ripper author Diana Gabaldon is much the same.

The Bink’s-Rating?

A solid B-, but I re-sold the set a few months ago, and will not be re-reading them, or reading the 2 or 3  more needed to complete the story-lines (if Martin lives that long). Why? For me it’s not the kind of series that inspires or abides in my heart and imagination. However, I can see how for others, some of the medieval elements might be inspiring, and find the mushy morality more congenial to current attitudes than the rank Christian & redeemed pagan moral sense of Tolkien or Lewis or Edith Pargeter.

Instead, it’s kinda like the dance of the seven veils, with the endlessly deferred promise of something worth waiting for.. but you begin to get the feeling there’s nobody under the last veil: all style, no substance. ~


A Modest Proposal

~ ITEM: The Girl Who Played with Tax Data: And uncovered the foreign funding of Canadian green groups

~ ITEM: Never before has a Canadian politician challenged the hitherto saintly protectors of the environment in such direct language

~ ITEM: Northern Gateway pipeline hearings sabotaged by Chicago-style politics

~ SINCE THE RECENT oil-wars revelation that a lot of Canadian Green groups are suckling on American greenbacks to oppose Canadian policies and projects like TransCanada’s $7-billion Keystone XL pipeline, I think it only reasonable that they lose their charitable status, and face public exposure to the taxman.

Declares Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver:

“These groups seek to exploit any loophole they can find, stacking public hearings with bodies to ensure that delays kill good projects. They use funding from foreign special interests to undermine Canada’s national economic interest. They attract jet-setting celebrities with some of the largest personal carbon footprints in the world to lecture Canadians not to develop our natural resources.”

After all, they are actually U.S.-funded political lobbying groups working under the guise of charitability, and no way like, say, the Salvation Army or the local Anglican parish or a soup kitchen. Instead, they are rented sockpuppets for the American green agenda, interfering in Canadian domestic business and self-interest. That is, undercutting Canada for pay.

Yum Yum Money

You like that estimated $250 million American so much, and keeping hush-hush about who’s paying for your bills and first-class airline tickets and fru-fru fair trade coffee? Then no cloak of noble charitability for you, and how’s about some full disclosure, you dissembling & smug hirelings?

Eco-greenians: rich, well-funded crazies telling everybody else what to do, and minding your business for you. ~


Under Da Sea

~ ITEM: Possible lost world found in Lake Huron

~ ITEM: hundreds of submerged sites of often megalithic ruins of historical cities

~ ITEM: HISTORICAL SEA LEVEL CHANGES

~ ITEM: Archaeologist digs diving?

12,000 Years Old Unexplained Structure

~ ITEM: Underwater Cities, Ruins and Other Urban Archeology: 7 Submerged Wonders of the World

Underwater Roman Village?

David Kennedy: Ancient Ruins

~ OVER THE PAST 25000 years, sea-levels have gone up by abut 500 feet. Thus, a lot of human settlement, archaeology, fossils and artifacts are in the largely ignored world of marine archaeology, a science still in development.

Ancient now submarine river-valleys would be full of old stuff, as would then-coastal areas, hilltops, and elsewhere. The advent of satellite mapping & imaging– with tools like Google Earth– has already helped with shallower archaeology, since many larger ruins & remains are visible from space.

Of course, that includes the Atlantis-seekers and alien conspiracists, but whatcha gonna do? I’m more interested in evidence, ruins, human and fossil remains, submarine caves and settlements and possible older civilizations. Since the undersea is still largely an undiscovered country, it lies open to serious researchers to find what’s hidden, and to rule nothing out.

Of course, we’re talking the time up to the last Ice Age, but also before– how old might human civilization be? Dunno.

It was a smug assumption of the 18th and 19th century that the direction of civilization was always upwards and more complicated– yet ruins throughout the world remind us that nations and civilizations also decline, fall, collapse. A singularly uncomfortable thought for self-congratulating European empires, but come home to roost in the 20th & 21st century.

Hide & Go Seek

If there were past civilizations over the previous 100 000 years or so– local or regional– then it’s a matter of figuring out their particular sea-level, probable location on the ancient landscape (in many cases, near existing settlements & cities), and the likely depth of sedimentation on top, and– voila!

As I say, this need not involve aliens, Atlantis, time-travel, or any other less serious elements. Indeed, the crazier folks paying attention to such discoveries make it all less credible to legitimate archaeology.

It Makes Sense

If humans invented stuff, it may have been invented & re-invented, built and rebuilt over many thousands of years. The fact that such possible evidence is under hundreds of feet of water– imagine a 500 foot increase in our 2012 sea-level, and how little of our current civilization would remain above water for future archaeologists to easily discover– means it’s sitting there, if it’s there, waiting for rediscovery.

Just saying, is all. ~


Hippy Cavemen & Really Bad Ideas

~ ITEM: Karl Heinrich Marx (5 May 1818 – 14 March 1883)

~ ITEM: Noble savage – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

~ ITEM: WRETCHES OF WALL STREET: PROTESTERS ACCUSED OF LIVING IN FILTH

~ ITEM: REPORT– US debt now size of entire economy; and Obama to ask for more money ‘in a matter of days’

~ ITEM: Who are the Tasaday?

~ SO ANYWAY, the other day I was reading somewhere about Karl Marx– you know, the noted sponge on his capitalistically rich co-thinker Engels (the family furniture business), like so many other Communist sponges since the 1800s. You know, those copyright-loving, money-collecting live in Western societies but preach them down sorta folks. Like Ernie Guevera’s daughter complaining about her father’s image on the t-shirts and dorm walls of rich idiot university students, violating.. copyright.

It turns out (I absolutely refuse to read turgid bad ideas translated from the German, so I’m taking somebody else’s considered word on the matter) that Mr. Marx dreamed– that in the end– after all the blood and violence and dignification of the poor proletariat and redistribution of everybody’s stuff, that Marx imagined that a primitive kind of campfire caveman happiness and sharing circle would ensue.

Sweet Sweet Crazy Juice

That is: Marx had drunk the crazy juice of English Whiggery, and the idea of the “noble savage”, along with “Man is born free, but everywhere is in chains” from the French Revolution, so tear stuff down and a paradise of noble & generous savages results.. eventually. Why?

“In his evolutionary model of history, he argued that human history began with free, productive and creative work that was over time coerced and dehumanised, a trend most apparent under capitalism.”

Backwards into the future! Yes, Marx was a total frickin’ hippy idiot. Of such nostalgic manure would be fashioned– not in modern states, but backward ones like China and Russia– the worst totalitarian nightmare in human history thusfar. Yay Karl.

Ideas Gots Consequences

Old Karl took on Really Bad Ideas, added his own Really Bad German & Lapsed Jewish Communist ideas, and unleashed 150 years of civilized barbarian hordes, starvation, gulags, destruction, spies & traitors, and betrayal.

Because ancient people were just people– warlike, garbage-prone, sometimes cannibals, utterly identified with nature and tribe and blood. Obviously, they didn’t share in the particular evils or complexities of modern society, since they weren’t moderns. But to then imagine that their sins didn’t exist because they weren’t our sins; that the current evils were somehow permanent, and warrant violent destruction of both the goods and evils of that society? Crazy evil.

After all, we still know stone-agey peoples, as in the highland warrior-tribes of New Guinea. They don’t have industrial disease, ennui, investment-worries, or boring industrial or office-cube jobs.. they make babies, and like life and stuff, but spend most of their time warring, feuding, planning wars & feuds, and occasionally killing each other off (ancient warfare is not exterminative, but more semi-recreational rugby with spears and warpaint for these particular ignoble savages).

Just Makin’ Sh*t Up

That’s Marx’s big idea. Happy hippy cavemen. Hilarity ensues.

Stupid? Yeah, but so ingrained a bad idea that in the 1970s, a made-up “Lost tribe” of peaceful stone-age hippies “found” in the Phillipines became the subject of films, books, many academic papers, and even National Geographic attention.

Called the “Tasadays”, they were a government put-up job to distract from the brutal Marcos regime. They were actually just poor rural folks, paid to act like “a lost stone age tribe”. Gullible Westerners eneamoured of the “noble savage” romantic idea fell over themselves to visit, take pictures, write and show how this proved how civilization was warlike and mean and bad, and these “ancient people” and their primitive state of life were innocent and pure and good, and  that they recycled and stuff.

New-fangled Cavepersons

Something like this mentality lies behind much of the Eco-Green cult, who want to have their cake and eat it, too– you know, construct a modern high-tech way of living naturally off-grid– you know, with all the conveniences of stone age life, like solar power, netbooks & wireless internet, gourmet coffee, recycling chemical toilets, books, greenhouses and the rest.

You’ll not see the wannabe-cavepersons dump modern health care, nutrition, vitamins, modern clothing, nor buying a ticket to get their stone age on with the hillbilly New Guineans, or the upper Amazonians. Too real.

The Bad Idea Club

Our modern neo-savages are often Marxists, too– combining one fairy-tale with another. Only thing is, unlike the Tasadays, real Communism is all too real– bloody, ruthless, ruinous, and utterly wrong. Hence Obama and the Occutards (witness their delightful noble savagery and return to nature) and Soros are wilful believers in a tested failure, and seek to propagate and spread the lie, because as we all know, if you insist enough that something works and is true, it will somehow one day work, and become true.

Indeed, the Occutards have achieved a real resemblance with a lot of stone-age folks– along with defecating outdoors and copulating in public, they leave garbage around in festering heaps, an open invitation to rats and other vermin. Ask an archaeologist. ~

Almost Paradise?


For Such A Time As This

~ I’M OVERJOYED that Ezra on SUN-TV has a huge public platform to speak his mind, and that he’s using it to do good for Canada, the truth, and public discourse.

A sometime commentator and journalist and politician and author, via the free speech wars he took on a different place in Canadian life– one which he has taken up with relish, righteous indignation, hilarity, and an underlying seriousness which nobody should ever underestimate.

Does he love Alberta? Yup. Does he think the Oil Sands are a good idea? You bet. Is he a shill? Nope.. and some ecogroups in Canada are plenty on the take.

I like SUN-TV, though I might wish for a little less FOX-North vibe. Long live Ezra on the small screen, and my he stay firm on the course of defining & defending The True North, Strong And Free. ~


The Giant “Off” Switch, USA

~ ITEM: “the detonation of one or more nuclear weapons at high altitude over the continental U.S. would result in an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) that could effectively remove the United States as an actor on the world stage, long-term”

~ ITEM: Facts & Figures– “The EMP Commission was reestablished via the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2006″; The Commission has released a Critical National Infrastructures Report (PDF, 7MB) and testified before the House Armed Services Committee (July 10, 2008) –Written Testimony (PDF, 76KB)

~ PEARL HARBOR ON STEROIDS— That’s what would happen if a rogue nation launched only a couple of nukes high into the atmosphere over North America. No, not nuking a city, but frying almost all modern electronics in a matter of seconds. All. Modern. Electronics.

Never mind that some machines & computers would be undamaged by virtue of place or inbuilt protection– power plants would be dead, all post-70s vehicles dead, all food & drug & consumer goods supplies stop; cellphones die; the internet reduced to a tiny military backbone (if that) inaccessable to most; TV & TV-stations, cable companies dead.. the list is endless.

All for the low, low price of a couple of ICBMs. Iran, North Korea, Pakistan, or some handy intermediaries could do it tomorrow. Today.

Warning: Possible Very Bad thing Right Ahead

The worst part? It would cost a lot less than a trillion to make the U.S. EMP-Nuke proof, but nobody has had the political will or foresight to make it a serious issue in the ever silly-making circle of the DC Beltway.

Power plants & transmission infrastructure need to be hardened & protected; the internet backbone & nodes made EMP-proof; the military & emergency responders & hospitals retrofitted. It needs to begin now, to be ready in 5 years.

Empty Shelves Policy: FAIL

More than the above, Western nations & businesses need to ditch the risky ‘just-in-time’ supply chain for food & drugs and essential materials. This is the low-inventory policy whereby suppliers are called every few days for inventory, but drug stores or supermarkets no longer keep several weeks of inventory, but days. As we saw in post-tsunami Japan, the just-in-time model presumes no disasters or interruptions. Emergency? A run on supplies, and suddenly there is nothing left.

Instead, in this world of increased risk and uncertainty, we need a widespread Just-In-Case program for business, manufactory, food & drug supplies, the military, government, and all the rest. Large inventory may cost more, and risk stale-dating, but Just-In-Time is a recipe for utter disaster, whether via EMP, nuke-strike, natural disaster, or any other massive interruption.

Ignoring The Risk

Mind you, the surviving post-EMP U.S. would counter-launch via their ICBM nuke-subs and splash the guilty, but the U.S. would be suddenly in the 1600s, minus all the infra structure to make that world work. Famine. The death of the old, sick, weak, chronically ill, the over-civilized and vulnerable. Gang-rule in some areas, martial law in others. Mass migration of refugees to warmer climes, seeking food & safety. Try this book for a taste.

This is unlike Pearl Harbor because we already know (1) the likely risk and (b) exactly what to do about it, and (iii) that it’s a very attractive option for terrorists or rogue nations who don’t want to fight the U.S. directly.

I Told You So. America, please prove me wrong. ~

When Greedy Airlines Attack

~ ITEM: Airline Fees Test Travelers’ Limits

~ ITEM: Delta to SCOTTEVEST– “Sorry but Carry-On Revenue = Ad Revenue in Delta Sky Magazine”

~ ITEM: Delta Sky Magazine rejects ad telling passengers how to avoid baggage fees

~ ITEM: Delta Sky Magazine rejected our ad

~ THIS BLOGGER is a big fan of ScottEVest clothing (SeV): clothing with extra pockets & wire-channels for iPods & pockets for the nerd-gear & tech-devices. Very handy for travel.

So SeV’s Prez Scott Jordan advertises that by wearing his gear, you can avoid extra baggage fees while flying. I did that very thing last Summer, keeping 15+ pounds of essential gear in my comfy SeV vest of many pockets (24, I think), including hidden pockets for cash & passports & tickets. It`s all about travelling smart, and no, I wasn’t charged extra for my vest.

Passengers Upset As Baggage Fees Remain

In the first 3 months of 2010 alone, Delta Airlines pocketed $769 million+ out of air-traveller’s pockets for the infamous “baggage fees” (like those delightful “because we say so” arbitrary bank-fees, except from airlines– as if air passengers should be travelling naked). It’s all about clawing back some of the money lost after the 9-11 air-travel & tourism collapse & rising fuel costs, from the people actually willing to travel. That amounts to a juicy $3.076 billion a year.

Now Delta has blown a gasket over SeV, and refused their ad-money over the “avoid extra baggage fees” phrase and idea. In response, Jordan has taken this David vs. Goliath fight public.

Response from delta re SCOTTEVEST ad – laughable

A couple years ago, United Airlines learned a lesson the hard way about mistreating luggage and ignoring complaints– and the more general problem of treating the air-travelling public like cattle (see vid below). Delta may be thinking it`s their mega-corp versus some little twerp, but word of this is spreading via social media & YouTube and FaceBook, and the customers are not amused. Way to throw away money and goodwill, Delta– I’ll be avoiding your services until you get a clue. ~

Buy This Book

~ ITEM: Glenn Beck vs Anti-Colonial Marxists; Glenn Beck Show, September 29 & 30 – Dinesh D’Souza and ‘The Roots of Obama’s Rage’; buy @ Amazon.

~ EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE, a key-like book comes along which unlocks a mystery. In this case, the mystery is Barack Obama, Jr., and the key is Dinesh D’Souza’s hot new tome, The Roots of Obama’s Rage.

Conservatives have spilled much talk and ink describing the misdeeds of the current President, and trying to pigeon-hole him as a racist, a socialist, a puppet for other radicals. Indian-born Dinesh D’Souza read & re-read Obama’s books, researched his history and education, and– based on his own experience as an immigrant to America– recognizes Obama as an anti-Colonial socialist, bent on punishing rich imperialists, humiliating and weakening America the Oppressor, and redistributing the wealth stolen from the downtrodden at home and world-wide.

In his basic ideas and commitments, Obama’s a 1960s African socialist reformer, bringing payback to the West– only as the head of what he views as the great villain-nation of the world. These are indeed The Dreams From His Father— a leading Kenyan Marxist and anti-colonialist intellectual who helped that nation throw off British rule.

God Damn Amerikkka!

It’s why Barack Obama seems cold, off-key, and a bit strange, even to many leading Democrats and liberals: he’s not truly an American Leftist, Democrat, or progressive– because he’s only superficially an American, nor truly & deeply an Afro-American. This anti-colonialist world-view explains his roundabout language and TelePrompterism, since he must always be interpreting & re-wording his actual views & motivations; it connects his family’s own deep radicalism with that of his mentors and professors and advisors and even his former pastor, the anti-Colonialist pastor Jeremiah Wright.

It’s also why people who do love America are right to suspect that their President is trying to cripple and bankrupt the U.S. into submission and weakness on the world-stage. He is.

Hopes Vs. Realities

Sad to say, the bright lights of post-war African independence saw their newly emergent nations crippled by dictatorships, debt, corruption, military coups, tribal rivalries, Islamic expansionism, civil wars, Cold War geo-politics, and the real-world difficulties of home rule versus chafing against imperialism. Africa today is full of hope, and suffering, disease and war– and still dependent on hand-outs from the West: the hopeful Marxism of Obama Sr. and his peers did not create their new Africa.

Yet the strange figure of Obama– living out the rage and vengeance he believes America should be punished for– means that he is living in the past, and at one remove from his real duties and responsibilities, and in a merciless distance from the people he promised to serve as President.

Thus D’Souza’s theory makes a lot of sense– for instance– of Obama`s shrugs and golfing and parties and offhand attitudes to the astonishing unemployment levels in America, along with business failures, despair, and the real threat of the collapse of the American dollar and economy, oil spills, or disasters. It’s as if some part of his unAmerican soul is saying “So what? You had it coming, and I’m here to bring it to you.” It’s Marx meets Robert Mugabe meets Prof. Edward Said meets DC spin-doctors.

You’ve Been Warned

America, be afraid– for your President resents your nation, your history, your pride, prosperity, and freedom.

I think Dinesh D’Souza has seen into the heart and mind of this puzzling and enigmatic President– go buy this book, and pass it around. ~

 


The Mounting Wreckage Of Trudeaupia

~ ITEM: Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms

~ ITEM: The Philosophical Basis Of Constitutional Discussion In Canada

~ ITEM: “The Philosophical Basis of Constitutional Discussion in Canada

~ ITEM: Doctor Roy– Trudeau was a horrible PM

~ ITEM: Justin Dreams– Little Pete waits in the wings

~ HIS NAME, you will recall, was Pierre Yves ELLIOT Trudeau. So what, you say? just this; his mother was part Scot, and of that rambunctious family the Elliots, who along with the Grahams, Armstrongs, Nixons and others were thieves, murderers, border reavers, and cattle-lifters. Lawless yahoos in the war-torn zone on the Anglo-Scottish border.

So in Trudeau’s very genes lay some of the material for making stuff up as he went along; seeing what he could get away with; playing fast and loose with the rule of law; saying one thing and doing another. Then he was unleashed upon an unsuspecting Canada.

Headliners

The recent prostitution ruling in Ontario by another liberal judge is based on Trudeau’s desire to be the second founding father of Canada– remade in his own image and likeness. Central to that was an abstract Euro-style document– a made-in Canada Constitution & Charter of Rights & Freedoms. Lust for that all-holy page in history has driven many folks to extremes.

Chaos & Swindling

In the blundering political free-for-all that was the constitutional conference, it was not a meeting of great minds distilling the best of British and Western legal and constitutional law, seeking to fashion a constitution and charter of rights and freedoms for the ages. It was a horse-trading mess, where everything was up for grabs because it was essentially Trudeau and the then-Premiers of Canada squabbling over this and that and getting the most for their own constituencies.

The Charter of Rights and Freedoms is the worst part of that political car-wreck– it creates a court-driven legal process, where judges have power to make and rewrite and strike down laws; plus, it essentially rewards those who seek to accrue rights for themselves or their interest group. The one with the most lawyers and court-enforced rights wins; the majority, or those without hyphens or grievances, are ‘less’ Canadian, less legally real.

Ugly Consequences

What if you don’t go along enthusiastically with the invented laws of the new regime? Then you are– as former Prime Minister Paul Martin infamously said of opponents of same-sex ‘marriage’ after that right was discovered by the courts– that such opponents were not mistaken or honestly of a different view– they were “unCanadian”.

So abortion law? Ruled unconstitutional. Man-woman marriage? Unconstitutional. The Charter has fragmented Canada into groups, and set Canadians against one another, and judge-backed minorities against the majority.

True constitutional thought by Canadian philosophers like James Doull, George Grant, or other constitutionalist legal experts? Unconsulted. A lasting and true solution to the French-English issue? Not so much. Social and political peace with all the issues confronting us from 1982 to 2010? Keep dreaming. The central documents of neo-Canada are all about unravelling what was, and making a new hyper-powerful judicial ruling elite, setting aside the legitimate powers of provincial legislatures, or Parliament itself.

King Pete? A Fail

So Trudeau must be judged a failure in his desire to cut Canada from her British legal roots, replacing that with a working & historic alternative. The legal civil wars, rampant minoritarianism & activist judges cheerfully blurring the line between interpreting law and advocating for politically correct outcomes– all may be laid at Trudeau’s feet.

It’s made lotsa business for lawyers & activists, but otherwise has not made Canada a more stable, legally and socially coherent modern nation, the true north strong and free, born of two founding nations. This is the fundamental weakness behind all news headlines & free-speech fights and creeping sharia and politics as usual in Ottawa.

For more on our unique situation, read the articles above, and read anything by William Gairdner on the state of Canada, and how we got into this high-speed handbasket. ~

 


A Professor Indeed

YOUTUBE: The Left On Campus

~ ITEM: How many angels can dance on the head of a pin?

~ ITEM: Uncommon Knowledge— Stanford University; The American Academy with Harvey Mansfield: Chapter 1 of 5

~ ONE OF THE GOOD GUYS— Professor Harvey Mansfield of Harvard (yes, I know). In a time when too many academics are tainted with radical politics, and rendered intellectually malignant, it`s good to find a real thinker, hidden in one of the rich & ivyed hotbeds of crazy.

One of the favourite late Renaissance/ protestant sideswipes against Medieval scholars was that they mostly wasted their lives arguing how many angels could dance on the head of a pin. Pure polemics, meant to score points at the cost of truth: it never happened.

Dorothy L. Sayers argued that the question was “simply a debating exercise” and that the answer “usually adjudged correct” was that “angels are pure intelligences, not material, but limited, so that they have location in space, but not extension.” Sayers compares the question to that of how many people’s thoughts can be concentrated upon a particular pin at the same time. The answer, therefore, is that an infinity of angels can be located on the head of a pin, since they do not occupy any space there.

One might wish many current academics did not actually waste time & thought on the modern version of angels & pinheads, like Women`s studies, critical theory, same-sex studies, race studies– and all the other trickle-down Marxism of the new Left, following on the radicalizing ideas of The Frankfurt School. Such impoverishing group-think excludes all other ideas– especially anything like the older liberal tradition of patiently learning what everybody ever thought from Moses & Plato onwards, so actual thought might break out, and you’d actually have something informed and useful and truthful to say. Heaven forbid.

Professor Mansfield is proudly of the older understanding. Beloved by thoughtful students, a hard marker, a conservative thinker, he has used his tenure not to hide and hive with liberals and political correctness, but to speak out, teach boldly, and to defy the intellectual death-cult which has overtaken many Western and American universities since the advent of the radical Left.

~ ITEM: Blazing Catfur: This is our future

~ ITEM: Canada : l’opération “Samosa” et la filière pakistanaise; plus “Canada : Tarek Fatah appelle les intellectuels à dénoncer l’idéologie islamiste

~ ARE THE LATEST terror-arrests in Canada a wake-up call? Depends on if you believe in the religion of “Everybody Is Equal” or not. Cuddly Relativism is the intellectual blindness affecting many in the media & academia & chattering classes– and after the facts and upset, the self-censoring and thought correction will kick in.

We’re in real danger of becoming like post-1933 German citizens watching their Jewish and Socialist and dissident neighbours disappear, and we adjust our reality just that little bit each time. So freedom is stolen incrementally, and the creeping cowardice paralyses freedom, thinking, and action.

Yawn.. So Sleepy!

Canadian people indeed need to wake up. We are at war– the enemy is here. They are persistent, dangerous, and intend domination. The critical limit is being passed– once militant Muslims feel they are free to attack Canadian targets, things get worse, and not better.

Further, even the soft-Jihadis are energized by terror-threats (successful or not) to be more politically and culturally aggressive, and the general populace (and particular uppity politicians and counter-jihadists) are ever more afraid of Muslim assertiveness and the threat of violence or societal disturbance.

Do we choose to live, fight back, stand tall? Or do we surrender via a thousand little white-flag moments?

What to do?

(1) Learn up ASAP on the terms & mentality of the Jihad we all face. We’re very lucky to have a number of talented word-warriors around for such a time as this. Books like Brother Tariq, or Robert Spencer’s Stealth Jihad, or his Religion of Peace?: Why Christianity Is and Islam Isn’t, and any of the books I feature on this blog or over at Canucki Jihad. This is first a war of facts & uncovering truth.

(2) No more naiveté. Stealth Jihad is here. Bringing Canada under submission to Islam is the goal. Watch and learn what militant Muslims are up to in Canada, whether by bombs or lawsuits. This is a war of awareness.

(3) Fight for immigration reform & restrictions, and deportation for immigrants & the children of immigrants who engage in or support Jihad, subversion, terrorists or terror-groups like Hamas, Hizbullah, the Taliban and all the rest.

(4) All radical mosques and imported radical imams need to be under surveillance, as well as conferences and gatherings, with full audits and financial consequences for criminal activity. Again, deportation and the full pressure of the existing laws need to be brought to criminals.

(5) We need to work with truly moderate Muslims to weaken the silence and oppression which radicals use to pressure their own communities.

(6) While the legal principle of innocent until proven guilty is essential in law, when it comes to  prudently dealing with militant Islam and the alphabet-soup of cover-groups like CAIR, ISNA, the MSA, they have a proven track record of supporting terror, encouraging radicalism, and demonstatre that the soft & hard sides of Islamic supremacism are two sides of the same coin. Jihadi until proven otherwise.. but still under suspicion.

(7) The cowardly idiots at the Laval PD, by refusing to investigate Muslim machete-threats against two university students merely send the message that Canadian law-enforcement and public opinion can be cowed. The brutal inhuman ideology of jihad sees that as weakness and opportunity.

(8) Ignore the self-pity, victimhood, and loud noises of the militants and their aiders and abettors. It’s distraction-seeking behaviour. “Help, help, we’re being oppressed” is a cover for being held accountable.

(9) Pray.

We’ve been very lucky and well-protected so far. Sooner or later, our luck will run out. ~


Multiamorous Adventurism

~ ITEM: Green Party Seeks To Enlarge Marital Carbon Footprint – To Vote On Polygamy Decriminalization

~ YOU CAN HEAR THE DEAFENING RUMBLE– of outraged same-sexists rallying to defend same-sex marriage, which they promised– promised!– would never never never ever open the door to the merest possibility of people using their innovation to propose even more innovations– such as polymorphical polygamy, for instance. Remember the outrage of then-MP Svend Robinson when people warned that polygamy was a possible consequence of mutating the age-old institution of man-woman marriage– just this once, pinky-swear!– for the same-sexers?

The United Church and Anglicans will cheerfully– after due debate & vote and sharing-sessions and institutional repression and suing of dissidents– conduct weddings of any random number of men and women.

Mumbles All ‘Round

What’s that? Deadly silence? Shrugs? Looking the other way and pretending such matters have nothing to do with them? The old Spanish proverb has it “‘Take what you want’, said God, ‘but you’ll have to pay for it.'”

That is, the unravelling of society and the collapse of the Christian ethic of marriage will sow dragon’s teeth in society. All of us have had a part in it– first the divorcers, then the un-marriers and serial monogamists. The same-sexers were once the bleeding edge of collapse, but next it’s the polygamists and child-sexers and eco-friendly dolphin-lovers, and the incesters.

Seriously– why not? Why shall not all be allowed to legally find their joy as they see fit? No? Why not, then? Shall mere commandment, tradition, custom, taboo, current legalities, the status quo– or anything else– deflect or deny our absolute will to jollies as we define them? Says who? So what if they do? Obviously phobic enemies of change.

Total Utter Fraud

And what tiny percentage of the 1-2% of the population that self-identify as “homosexual” have rushed off to the altars they so sought to possess via marriage? Under 1%. That’s right. Canada= 33 millions. That’s about 660 000 people at the very most who self-identify as “gay”. Of those, under 10 000 have gotten “married”.. perhaps as few as 6600 people, or +/- 3300 couples. Getting the picture? It wasn’t even a sales-job– it was a full-scale scam pulled on the rest of us.

Then they enforce the latest rules on the rest of us. Totaliqueerianism?

We have loosed the wind, and shall reap the whirlwind and worse. ~


It’s The Sun, Stupid

~ ITEM: Pundita– Solar Cycle 24

Space Weather – Solar Storms in HD

Space Weather Gadget Version 1.0

~ I WAS WATCHING (online) the BBC ‘Wonders Of The Solar System‘ series, and learning more about the Sun. It’s big. And remarkably hot. And puts out a lot of energy.

Interestingly, the Sun has seasons and hot & cold times; and the earth responds to this in endless ways. One scientist showed that the active & quiet phases of solar weather corresponded directly with changes in the Amazon river depth & activity.

We So Smarter

Those prone to mocking past ages for not being as amazingly smart as we are will make endless sport of the ‘fact’ that ‘everybody in the pre-modern world thought the earth was the centre of the solar system’ because they anthropocentrically thought human beings were all that. Well, lots of people didn’t; some did, and whatever. Their astronomy began because they loed God and his creation: God was the great fact and source of all. They didn’t miss that fact.

Thumbing your noses at the past is a very snobbish & teenagerish activity.

Fast forward to our supremely brilliant times, and the bizarre and politicized debate over man-made global warming. That is, humans are so powerful and dangerous that we’re the direct cause of all the changes in the atmosphere. God? Whatever. It’s all about us.

Al Suzuki

Really? The Sun is the biggest effing thing in our celestial neighbourhood– even bigger than Al Gore & David Suzuki’s egotism combined– and it is the biggest fact of our life, existence, and earthly weather… down to the bottom of the ocean, even.

The Big Idea

Solar weather = global weather. Repeat. Ponder.

More solar heat = more carbon dioxide released into the environment from the sea & land. Less heat? = Less CO2. Much of human history can be deciphered via solar history, and the resulting changes in climate, oceans, rainfall, monsoons, and all the rest.

Ask the tribes of the lush Sahara.. or the ancient Harappans. No? They moved on, as the sun changed & climate changed.

It’s more anthropocentrism redux to go green-cult apocalyptic and put human actions at the centre of the solar system again. Yes we need to continue to fight pollution, and make all efforts to get chemicals and toxins out of the natural environment, but anthropogenic global warming is a theory with a lot of unanswered questions, not a scientific certainty on which to found social, scientific and environmental policy upon.

Why– that?.. that would be really stupid! ~


Society As A ‘Technical’ Problem

Crunch. Smash. Shove. Wreckify.

~ ITEM: WikiPedia– Hubris

~ ITEM: “The purpose of gay marriage is to demand the same status as a family and, perversely, to punish families that fail to pretend that narcissistic gay couplings are the same thing as a family

~ ITEM: VERBOTEN CURE– “A rare hormonal condition can sometimes cause the improper development of female genitalia. It’s treatable, but there’s a catch. It *could* prevent the occurrence of homosexuality. So, natch, the advocates of the religion of homosexuality want to prevent the treatment.”

~ ITEM: Take that, GLADD. Bullying is the reason people don’t like you

~ LAST TIME AROUND I wrote of how Canadian philosopher George Grant warned us of techne as our abiding idea– of man as unlimited maker via technology. Maker-man always thinks in terms of ‘can I do this’, not ‘should I do this’– and without grasping the consequences.

Modern social radicals have the same technical approach to remaking society and other people. Feminists? Same-sexists? Multicultists? Just fix the ‘problem’ you don’t like by hook or crook– engineer your solution by law, popular opinion, by shutting down the opposition.

This is, of course, a profoundly inhuman and dehumanizing approach. It treats humans, civilization, institutions and good and evil as a ‘problem to be solved’, with some people having power to control and remake others and their behaviour. Labtech & rats.

So the advocates of social revolution imagine they can ‘make a new world’ by will & technique: clear-cutting and paving and mutating all obstacles and opposition. California’s controversial Proposition 8 is thus merely (and only) a matter of how to get what you want, not right or wrong, or whether it should be done, or consequences intended or otherwise.

Making Stuff Up

The idea that this is just ‘gay culture’ extending back to the Greeks is utter nonsense & historical ignorance. Some of the Greeks may have had societally tolerated male & male sexual relationships– but this was not marriage, nor officially approved in society.

The ancient Greeks considered impiety and hubris great sins. That is, disrespecting the gods by casting aside treasured human tradition and customs; and overweening pride, arrogance and insolence, resulting violence against others, and the downfall of the hubristic.

Arrogant modern radicals are destroyers, bullies, and great sowers of dragon’s-teeth & destruction in society. If they succeed, we end up with a universal tyrant-state– if not, more societal collapse and divisions.. with rising persecution of socons and the classically religious.

We have created our own barbarians, and some of them are ‘fabulous’. ~


Friends I’ve Yet To Meet

~ ITEM: Interesting interview with Tolkien

~ C.S. LEWIS once spoke of how reading the wonderful faerie-novels of George MacDonald ‘baptized’ his imagination. It was an enlightening, a preparation for the Gospel, an unsuspected inward awakening which opened his mind & heart to higher things, through seemingly ordinary literary means.

Tolkien’s Middle Earth novels were them same for my bookish young soul. Old JRRT was a thus a soul-friend I never met in the flesh– I hope to thank him and Christ himself for him one day on that bright and farther shore.

His heroic characters are each one aspects of humanity, faith, courage, and suffering. They are friends I have walked with in imagination, and each time, the stories are fresher and better than before.

How so? Faith and imagination are not contraries, but the very fire and furnace of a living heart and mind. The impoverishing of bookless souls raised on square glowing screens is a real loss and tragedy for the individual and for humanity.

Go To Hell!

Via

So I’m re-reading Dante (in the timeless Sayers translation, which captures the joy in verse of the original), and finding in my Florentine friend a real gift in his firm self-examination of soul, his humour, his humility learned through suffering. Plus, that 700-year dead author taught me how to love and understand poetry.

It’s never to late to pick up & read the great classics of Western Litt– which after all, truly live in the hearts and minds of ordinary folk, and not bottled up like mummified objects of academic interest & squabbling only. ~


HomoWars: The Coulter Thing

~ ITEM: World Net Daily Partially “Dumps” Ann Coulter Over “HomoConflict”

~ BECAUSE WHY, EXACTLY? It’s beyond ironical that the radical Leftards under Allan rock at the UofO in Canada and the hard right WND media outlet agree that Ann Coulter is just too much. Looks like both of her opponents misunderstand the whole messy ‘freedom of speech’ thing– but shame on WND for slighting one of their own, one of the good-gals.

A real risk of the ideological wars is to become like your enemy– to become bitterly politically correct in a reverse direction, and to impose us/them categories. That way lies crazy, faction, and an ever-smaller ‘us’.

True conservativism is a better account of reality partly because it encompasses a wider and more encompassing view of the universe, opinion, and the freedom of speech, opinion, and the like.

WND should apologize and hire Coulter back on ASAP. ~
