THE POINT OF TERRORISM is.. terror: submission, paralysis, fear, to control & change you inside. Politics, warfare, & conquest by other means.
You acquiesce to increasing levels of “peace and security” fascism at home, to supposedly prevent internet & mosque made Islamofascists from home and abroad. And you’re never allowed to forget or think otherwise than: You. Are. Helpless.
So, welcome to the new normal, and the atypical and strange form of war, where you are on the front line of the Jihad. Your ordinary life– but suddenly with added machine guns, bombs, soldiers & police, and ever more safety-rape at security checkpoints. This is, of course, daily life in much of the world, now coming home to roost.
These terror attacks are not going to stop, although thankfully some are prevented by the authorities, despite themselves— though one does wonder if such terrorism isn’t found useful by advocates of a disarmed populace in a prison-state. You know, “useful crises” for the dark powers within the West, and the Jihadi threat-makers, too.
You can be safe, but not free. Or, you can be free, but not safe.
This truism is our life in 2016, and we made it. It’s founded on the fact that Baby Boomers and later could not did not or would not have replacement levels of children; that we imported people to replace our own missing kids; BUT (and thus the Canadian & more general problem) after Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau removed the educated-immigrant requirement, we increasingly allowed in welfare-ready, criminal, and under-educated people, including non-Westernized Muslims (and others) who brought their radical problems and ideas from home to here.
Canada In The Bullseye?
So far, useful-idiot Canada has been part safe-house, and part money-bags for radical terror groups. Our naive and well-intentioned “Multiculturalism” was supposed to mean cool new restaurant menus, and neighbours with exotic outfits and recipes at FolkFest. That’s because to us, faith and politics and Big Ideas and even our entire society are no longer to die for.. that’s the government’s job, now. Yet we import (or create) serious radicals who can operate well below our mental and political radar, people who are gladly misusing Canada’s nice reputation and passports and smug cluelessness.
Moreover, the informal hawalabanking system which allows money to be brokered all over the world from Canada? It means that some families are getting extra money from their Canadian relatives.. and so are some groups who like killing, bombing, raping, and decapitation. Terror gets saddle-bags of cash sent to them from Western supporters and mosques, and there’s no easy way to track it. It might– just might– mean that Canada will only be targeted by homegrown solo or small-group Jihadis, and not ISIS bombing a major airport, big city, or some mass gathering of people.
Who To The Rescue?
Since we’re all unofficially evil & dangerous, even law-abiding peaceful citizens in Canada can go to jail if they shoot or stab a home invader, or, one presumes, a bomb-strapped terrorist. Don’t worry! we’re told, polices will protect you!
This is a fraudulent promise, in the case of Jihadi-suicide terrorism, since the moment the scumtards start shooting or/ and then explode is the moment you’d like really some protection. When seconds count.. the police are only minutes away! I’m not saying that a gun-toting citizenry can solve everything, but nobody really can– even a total police state, overflowing with “Pe-E-e-eace & Se-E-e-ecurity“, and where everybody gets lightly raped at the airport.
Never forgets (until next time)! Roll out the fraidy-cat hashtags, avatars and animated GIFs! Signal that virtue! Lower the flags and light the monuments! Much sads! So feels! Tweet your defiances! SHHHTerror-nausea risingSHHHH….
What’s to be done, Binks? Be proactive, prepared, and not a victim. Because I said so, dammit! You. Are. NOT. Helpless.
In Canada, and gun-lite Europe, everybody CAN and SHOULD have (1) An Every Day Carry (EDC) kit, (2) An Emergency Plan, (3) A Way To Help, and (4) Some Self-Defence Skills. Even if our modern airport faux-security theatre undercuts some weapon-options, you don’t have to be totally helpless if dangerous, terrorist, weather crisis, or other emergency situations arise.
1. Your Very Own EDC
(1) Google or YouTube search for ‘Every Day Carry’ (EDC)– and most items are detailed on Amazon.com, so you can buy them more affordably on eBay. Every responsible, mature, and thus safety/ self-defence minded person from 8-year old on up should have some basic daily carry items.
Your EDC, for example? A rescue knife, keychain, good flashlight, a paracord bracelet, a mini-BIC lighter, a tiny Swiss Army knife (with tweezers & a pen), emergency whistle, small multitool, a smartphone, a watch or other time-piece, pen and paper (you can even get self-defence pens), some water, an LED micro-light, a firesteel. In the U.S., you should also have a punchy small gun (.40 or 45ACP), and your concealed-carry license, where possible.
Then.. there’s yer plastic raincoats, emergency mylar blankets, a compass, power-bars, a small backpack, tissues, some Ibuprofen, a bandana (for slings, wounds, and many other uses)….
There’s an EDC out there for every budget, level of readiness and complexity, and you can even colour-coordinate if you wish, ladies and gentlemen. Make an EDC keychain for each person in your family, and one for the car. Start small, build up, and switch items depending on your daily needs and travel.
Ask yourself: if you were ditched in a snowstorm, on a sinking ship, or caught by a hurricane, or some other emergency, how happy would you be to have these items? How much would you be willing to pay to have them on your belt, in your coat, or stocked in your purse?
2. Get Me Outta Here!
(2) Fun With Escapism. Play this video game in your head, wherever you are. If a bad guy or group of them were to come from this or that direction around me, where could I and my loved ones escape/ run to/ hide from bullets or other violence? Practice this mentally at home, the mall, supermarket, parking lot, airport, tourist location, nightclub, school or university, wherever.
Always try to have a plan A, B, and C– such options keep you from just panicking, and freezing in place. Think: I must be where the danger ISN’T.. and move away if it’s coming close. Don’t be conspicuous, or needlessly heroic– be bland and grey and unremarkable.
Americans: if you have your conceal carry license, use it and carry your sidearm, at very least to create a safe-zone or an escape route for yourself and others. Usually, the police will not be rushing in to save you any time soon. That’s not their job.
3 & 4. Help Out, Self Defence
(3) Do you have a basic First Aid/ CPR course? Could you operate one of those emergency Defibrillator machines you’ll sometimes see around? Could you stanch a wound, secure a broken neck, or use a tourniquet? Get those skills, now, when it’s not urgent. Sign up the office, or the whole family, or the whole school.
Re: helping– Beware that rushing right in after a bombing may be super-dangerous, because some bombers will plant delayed secondary explosives, for when they think the ambulance, police, and firemen have arrived– for even more horrible and costly collateral damage. Do what you can, be cautious, but a dead or wounded you is no use to anybody in need of help.
(4) Basic men or women’s self defence courses are available almost anywhere. MMA/ Brazillian Jiu-Jitsu, Karate, Tae-Kwon-Do, Krav Maga clubs are all over the place, and give you health, confidence, and some self-defence skills at the same time. A little weapon-training will help you fight with various weapons, or improvise, or know how to defend yourself (and others) against different attacks.
Almost Done, Ye Windbag Elf?
The middle class and upwards in Western Europe and much of North America have been generally safe, soft, and peaceful for almost three generations. We’ve enjoyed an extended local vacation from readiness, preparedness, living on the edge, thinking in an emergency.. because we’ve been mistakenly taught in the nanny state mental universe we live in that The World Is Safe, and if not, that Somebody Else Will Always Come Along To Save And Help Us.
A helpless, needy, compliant, disarmed & sheepish populace is ideal for those in power– but not the people themselves. Especially in emergencies.
This is naive at best, and grossly negligent and irresponsible at worst. The world isn’t really like that, so thank emergencies and bad people in this at least: we must be prepared as a minimum level of responsible adulthood. Sure it will cost some time and money and learning– but how much is your life or my life worth? That of our kids, grandkids, or neighbours?
Please keep learning up on those four starter-topics, via Google, YouTube, even Pinterest (and more here)– and pass the word on to others. We don’t have to either live in fear and terror, or in a prison-state.
Be free, and brave, and responsible with that freedom.
By 2009,it looks very much as if someone at CBS got to the writers. In an episode originally aired 10 days before Christmas (Dec 15, 2009, ‘Faith’), we get the basic heavy-handed apologetic for just how awesome and awesomer Islam is.
You know, because by the end of the episode, it’s the Christian brother of a slain convert from Christianity who turns out to have murdered him– wait for it– for family ‘honour’… because honour killing is a totally Christian activity. We just can’t stop ourselves.. I’ve been planning on murdering some female relatives just this week. Episode 7.10 = Islam Is Utterly Awesome, But Christians Will Murder their convert children.
We all remember the story told by Jesus of the Prodigal Son, where the shamed and outraged father and brother of a wastrel son go out and bludgeon the wastrel to death for his sins and besmirching the family name, right? Not so much.
Great episode, NCIS, except– that would be Muslims who are the main perpetrators of such murders, along with a smattering of Hindus and Sikhs who engage in the practice, to the tune of 20 000 dead women, teens, and children a year. That we know of: “the overwhelming majority of honor killings are perpetrated by Muslims against Muslims (90% of honor killings known to have taken place in Europe and the United States from 1998 to 2008)” [ Phyllis Chesler, Are Honor Killings Simply Domestic Violence?, Middle East Quarterly, Spring 2009, pp. 61–69; Meforum.org. Retrieved on 1 October 2011. ].
Against this, we don’t see a presentation of Christianity or Judaism, but something to do with families being nice, and Santa Claus. Muhammed vs. Santa? Really?!
Sweet Little Lies
The terribly sad thing, therefore, is that television, TV networks, and the writers of NCIS turned their actors into sock-puppets for the worst kind of lying, pandering, and cover-up for Islam, Jihad, Stealth-Jihad, and cultural domination: a deliberate deception of their audience, too.
Shame on NBC, NCIS, whoever pushed them around, and on our gutless elites and chattering classes for such gutless pandering to barbarism, supremacism, and pussy-footing in our civilizational war.. and for not bothering to know any better. ~
“The champions of socialism call themselves progressives, but they recommend a system which is characterized by rigid observance of routine and by a resistance to every kind of improvement. They call themselves liberals, but they are intent upon abolishing liberty. They call themselves democrats, but they yearn for dictatorship. They call themselves revolutionaries, but they want to make the government omnipotent. They promise the blessings of the Garden of Eden, but they plan to transform the world into a gigantic post office. Every man but one a subordinate clerk in a bureau. What an alluring utopia! What a noble cause to fight!”

~ LET ME CLEAR: Obama– and all the other radicals like him around the world and in Western nations want some basic things. They won’t come out and say so, but here it is: the list (and note, a lot of the alleged “Left” and Right” both support many of these goals). Remember: there is no idea so evil, crazy, destructive, and wrong-headed that somebody some where won’t back it to the hilt.
Fun With Crazy Schemes
A Disarmed Populace.
A legally unfree populace.
Side-lining and abolition of any non-compliant serious organized religions.
No free press, free speech, freedom of association, freedom of conscience.
Deconstruction of the nuclear & extended family structure.
Complete government control of the economy.
A large dependent-class in each nanny-state society.
Expropriatory taxation-levels, fees, energy costs, food costs, leading to the impoverishment of the middle class.
Various levels of liberty, freedom, & citizenship. No equality before the law.
The destruction & effective legal abolition of marriage, and encouragement of sexual extremity, pornography, desensitization to polygamy, incest, and pedophilia.
The destruction of the nation-state, absorbed into a global government.
Government-controlled births.. one-child policies or worse.
An “education system” that creates uninformed people, subject to propaganda.
A small world population, kept around 500 million – 1 billion.
The effective erasing of all legal principle, constitution, government, precedent, or set of laws opposed to their plans.
Total surveillance of all activity: digital, financial, personal.
The environmental & other “crisis” movements like Agenda 21 used to forward all these various projects.
Read It & Weep
There. I told you. None of this is inevitable, only hoped-for, planned, and partially in effect. It is deliberate, and part of a scheme for global governance, down to the microscopic & individual level. Nor will a lot of it work real-world, but reality never stopped a utopian, or a tyrant.
~ EVERY FEW MONTHS, they call.. the cable-people. We have interwebs & telephone, but not TV-cable. The cable-people seem very puzzled by this– but I’m not interested in opening the home to 24-7-364 advertising, re-runs, and the sewage which passes for pop culture.
Marshall McLuhan famously said “The medium is the message”– that is, before the shows or ads or flickering images, the TV itself forms us, shapes us, creates a passivity and receptivity and uncritical attitude towards mass-media.
The boob-tube is hypno-sewage. The idiot-box kills yer brain, large amounts of time, steals from book-readage, family-time, daydreaming-time, the outdoors.. life.
The internet is addictively bad, too– but as a blogger, I’m “Talking Back” to the machine, to the mass-media mass-marketing of politics, events, fake crap, spin-messages, lies and laughable nonsense.

~ SINCE THIS blog was started to support free speech warrior Mark Steyn, you already know he’s at the top of the list of happy warriors doing the needful in times when freedom is treated like a disease.
Two other good folks come to mind.
Support, help, and encourage the current heroes in current U.S. Freedom Wars, like Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel of the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ); and Greg Lukianoff, President of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE).
Sekulow is the one defending the IRS target groups; Lukianoff is currently exposing government interference in university speech-codes.
~ “HOPE”, LIKE “Justice” is become a cuddly modern code-word for many, signifying redistribution, white guilt, statism, and Obama Uber Alles/ Progressive/ cuddly Marxism in the case of American politics.
Hope is far older, and one of the theological virtues, the opposite of which is sloth/ despair/ mindless activity, cynicism. Hope is grounded in God, and as Wikipedia puts it, is an “expectation of and desire of receiving; refraining from despair and capability of not giving up.”
