Do Yuh Feel Lucky, Punk?

Well, do yuh?

After the latest shooting in Florida, the Fake News media descended into their usual hypocrisy and hysteria about guns, or gun violence as they call it. Funny that people are not killed on the roads by “car violence”?

The real crime here is the almost total uselessness of the law enforcement agencies, studiously avoided mention by the Fake News Media. The FBI, the Federal Bureau of Incompetence, was warned about the shooter and his advertising his proclivity to violence on multiple occasions and yet did nothing. The local police reported that they had been called to his residence about 39 times in the last few years, still nothing was done. The lefty argument is to “ban guns”, which means that only that criminals will have guns.

So, what to do? Blame the NRA, of course. Murderers are not responsible for their actions; other law-abiding citizens are! That’s lefty thinking anyway. How does a society deal with this kind of problem?

Well, look to those who really know about it—the Israelis. From Israel National News:

Enter Israel: When the knife intifada erupted in September 2015, the Israeli government’s response was to ease the process for the civilian populace to obtain weapons. After a particularly bloody Jerusalem shooting attack that killed four, then-Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan drastically changed the gun laws in order to significantly raise the number of armed civilians on the streets. Instantly, graduates of Special Forces units and IDF officers with the rank of Lieutenant and above were permitted to purchase guns at their will, security guards were allowed to bring their guns home after work, and the minimum age for a license was reduced from 21 to 18.
Erdan explained that “civilians well trained in the use of weapons provide reinforcement in the struggle against terrorism”, while Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat called for every resident to carry a gun, and was even photographed traveling the city carrying a Glock 23.

And as for the “problem” of more civilians carrying around guns;

In addition, the overwhelming majority of terror attacks in Israel are stopped by armed civilians, not law enforcement. For example, the terrorists in the 2016 Sarona market attack were stopped by armed passersby. A pistol-carrying tour guide put an end to the 2017 ramming attack in Arnona that left four soldiers dead.
In Israeli eyes, guns are a valuable deterrent against terrorism. In fact, terrorists have told the Shin Bet internal security service that they often target haredi Jews due to the high likelihood that they are unarmed.

And what about “gun control”, or rather license to kill for terrorists:

Gun control has been proven to be a dismal failure in Israel. The Israeli Arab communities are rife with illegal weapons, with some police estimates putting the number of unlicensed weapons in the Arab sector as high as 500,000. Think about that for a second: The most heavily guarded borders in the world and a highly professional Shin Bet are still not enough to prevent criminals from obtaining illegal firearms.
When terrorists attacked a school in Maalot in 1974, Israel did not declare every school a gun-free zone. It passed a law mandating armed security in schools, provided weapons training to teachers and today runs frequent active shooter drills. There have been only two school shootings since then, and both have ended with teachers killing the terrorists.
It is an approach that the Americans should take to end the constant slaughter of innocents.

That’s all you really need to know when the hysterical liberal mob rants on about innocent lives lost. Just imagine if the Israelis had gun control…?

But they have common sense. So do the Americans (aside from the traitors in the political class).

If the right of the people to keep and bear arms is infringed, tyranny is around the corner.

The biology of human sexual life versus the Left

There are only 4,000 mammal species on earth. Humans are  weird, and in some cases unique, among those 4,000 species.. Two professors, Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying, here interviewed by Joe Rogan, have been the subject of leftist attacks because they insist on the biological basis of sex. Who would have thought it possible?

Their troubles at Evergreen College are related here.

Heather Heying’s analysis of the situation is here.

 

The battle on our campuses—and ever more, in K-12 schools, in cubicles and in meetings, and on the streets—is being framed as a battle for equity, but that’s a false front. True, there are real grievances. Gaps between populations exist, for historical and modern reasons that are neither honorable nor acceptable, and they must be addressed. But what is going on at institutions across the country is—yes—a culture war between science and postmodernism. The extreme left has embraced a facile fiction.

Postmodernism, and specifically its offspring, critical race theory, have abandoned rigor and replaced it with “lived experience” as the primary source of knowledge. Little credence is given to the idea of objective reality. Science has long understood that observation can never be perfectly objective, but it also provides the ultimate tool kit with which to distinguish signal from noise—and from bias. Scientists generate complete lists of alternative hypotheses, with testable predictions, and we try to falsify our own cherished ideas.

This Russia Nonsense

null

Now that the FBI has indicted a few Russians for “interfering” in the US election, by placing some ads on Facebook etc., (that were “disparaging Hillary Clinton!” I kid you not) is the entire edifice of US politics trembling? Er, no.

The Clinton circus spent over $1.2 billion (yes, 10^9), used untold numbers of orcs and trolls, had the entire Fake News Media lying for her 24/7 and…wait for it…a few ads on Fakebook threatened the electoral process of the US? Get real.

If you want real meddling look at the US— trying to unseat Netanyahu in the last Israeli election, Obama going to Britain during the referendum and threatening the British if they voted to leave the EUSSR, the Clinton/Obama catastrophe duo destroying Libya for no reason at all and turning it into a haven for ISIS terrorists and more recently, the Deep State Department funding the opposition to Orban in Hungary so that they could help that international globalist pest, George Soros.  And don’t forget the CIA-funded coup in Ukraine that deposed a legitimate government.  Imagine if the Russians had overthrown the Canadian government; how would the US feel?

Elections are all about “influencing” people to vote one way or another. During the Bush/Kerry election, a far-left rabble from Britain (supported by the Grauniad newspaper) descended on a few counties in the US to try to get people to vote for Kerry and not Bush. Where was the FBI then? Wasn’t that foreign interference? Of course not; when it’s for the Democrats, anything goes.

Of course, the Fake News Media wouldn’t be doing their job if it did not constantly refer to Putin as a KGB officer. But George Bush senior was the head of the CIA—peas in a pod. But the US political establishment has learned nothing in the last 30 years since the fall of communism. The endless propaganda creating enemies where there are none, and covering for the real blight on civilization, Islam, is doing the West no good at all.

In the last 30 years, Russia has changed more than any other country of relevance in the world—and mostly to the good. Whose armies are moving closer to the Russian border? Who broke the commitment not expand militarily eastward after the end of the Cold War? What reason was there for the US to destroy Libya?

This whole sorry affair is a demonstration of the malignant influence of the endless warmongering of the Deep State and a deeply corrupt Democrat Party that controls American politics. The incessant lies about and attacks on President Trump are a disgrace to the American nation. In the past, everybody despised the media in communist countries—the Western media are headed the same way fast, and with good reason.

The Principles of Totalitarian Rule

null

“The really frightening thing about totalitarianism is not that it commits ‘atrocities’ but that it attacks the concept of objective truth; it claims to control the past as well as the future.” —Orwell

Sound familiar? As you know, this is what is happening now in the allegedly free societies of the West. Consider certain objective truths: men and women are different sexes; human racial groups have genetic differences; some cultures are conducive to human betterment, others not. Most people would agree that life is better now than in the Stone Age.

Such is the level of insanity prevailing in our societies today, it is a criminal offense to mention some of these topics. The principle of Doublethink, holding two opposing views at the same time, is so typical of totalitarian minds. Naturally, it precludes all logical discourse. The doublethinkers first use insults, then violence and retribution to shut down open discussion. You can lose your job if you don’t “embrace diversity”, that is, approve of the destruction of Western Civilization. There are brave souls standing up against this onrush of ignorance (led, strangely enough, by the “universities”) such as Jordan Peterson and Janice Fiamengo in Canada, but no politician in Canada seems to have a backbone. They are all invertebrates.

All totalitarian societies are extremely brittle. They cannot accept any deviation from the official line of the Party. Consider one instance here, gay “marriage”. First, the claim was for “equality”, whatever that means. The claimants wanted only “tolerance”, to be treated the same as any normal married couple. Despite the religious and moral objections to this, gay marriage was legalized. Immediately, the day after almost, all moral and religious objections were dismissed as “hate” and under the suppression of free speech conditions that prevail in our society; anyone not approving of gay marriage was condemned as a “hater”. Gay propaganda was forced into educational curricula in schools by the leftist teacher unions, and of course students know full well that they are under the thumb of their teachers and have no say in the matter. Neither do parents.

This illustrates one of the basic principles of totalitarian rule:

Principle, The First:
Everything not forbidden is compulsory.

There is no civil society out of reach of the tentacles of government prying. Not only are the modes of work and doing business the concern of government, but also our private and intimate lives relating sex, love and family. “Universities” are again leading the way in this assault on human decency. Arbitrary accusations of “sexual misconduct” can lead to any man losing his job, career or position with no due process whatever. Remember, the witch trials in earlier centuries were all the results of anonymous accusations used by hysterical mobs and the lack of any due process or presumption of innocence. Strange, isn’t it, how our centers of higher learning are no better than a medieval mob?

We now come to the second principle of totalitarian rule:

Principle, The Second:
All opposing views are hate.

This has been amply demonstrated above, but for another example, consider imperialism and the colonial empires of past centuries. Africa was in the Stone Age prior to the arrival of the Europeans. All the current nations, Nigeria, South Africa, Rhodesia etc. were creations of Europeans. Industry, education, agriculture, were all introduced by the British, French and Germans among others. No doubt some bad things happened, so what’s new? The fact is, that without Western imperialism, Africa would be today where it was hundreds of years ago. In fact, since the fall of the colonial empires, much of it is reverting to more primitive times, witness the campaign of murder of White farmers in South Africa, and how Zimbabwe has sunk into chaos since the days of Rhodesia. Nevertheless, even a mention of these bedrock facts raises the ire of the pseudo-academic mobs in colleges. Recently, one professor was condemned simply for pointing out these facts in a paper “The Case for Colonialism”. The gutless journal, the Third World Quarterly, refused to publish the paper because of pressure and threats from the Thought Police in academia.

As you will see in future missives, many other principles of totalitarian rule will be discussed illustrating how our society is descending into tyranny. All from inner decay, as…
“Men do not go to ruin through lost wars, ….”

Desinformatsiya and the Russian interference issue

The Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller has brought indictments against a number of Russians who, through aliases, interfered in the US election.

 

The Russians, assuming the identity of Americans, operated social media pages designed to attract the attention of Americans and foment social and political divisions.

I assume the truth of this. Moreover, I assume the truth of all such accusations about Russian state activity in the service of Russians state interests from the time of the Tsars.

If you need evidence for this tendency, I invite you to read the Marquis of Custine’s description of Tsarist Russia, written in 1839. I quote from his book:

In Russia, whatever be the appearance of things, violence and arbitrary rule is at the bottom of them all. Tyranny rendered calm by the influence of terror is the only kind of happiness which this government is able to afford its people.

This, to be sure, was long before the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917. Another snippet from the Marquis, who visited Russia for some months and returned to France with baleful conclusions about the regime of the Tsars:

In Frace, revolutionary tyranny is an evil belonging to a state of transition; in Russia, despotic tyranny is permanent.

Not enough? Well try the book, Red Horizons, written by Lt. Gen.Ion Pacepa (pronounced Pachepa) former head of Rumania’s foreign intelligence service and a defector to the United States in 1978.

Pacepa’s view is that by far the largest activity of the security services of the Communist regime, from Stalin on down, was not intelligence gathering so much as framing the innocent, and generating “disinformation”. For example, disinformation is the process whereby you have come to believe, in all probability, that the firmly anti-Nazi Pope Pius XII was “Hitler’s Pope” and that he did not do enough to help the Jews in World War II. Besmirching the reputation of those who oppose the interests of the rulers of Russia, whether Tsarist, Communist, or the current ex-KGB leader, is what their secret services do.

If the Russian regime can throw doubt on the outcome of the entire US election by the trivial expenditure of some Facebook pages, and the time of some 13, or even 13,000, agents of the FSB, do you think they would not do it? The gains they make by throwing the US system of government into disrepute are enormous; they undercut the legitimacy of the US system for chicken feed.

Is it any wonder then, that Trump tweeted yesterday:

President Donald Trump says Russians are “laughing their asses off in Moscow” for the way Washington has handled the Russia investigations, following the Department of Justice’s charges against Russian nationals last week for allegedly interfering in the 2016 election.

“If it was the GOAL of Russia to create discord, disruption and chaos within the U.S. then, with all of the Committee Hearings, Investigations and Party hatred, they have succeeded beyond their wildest dreams. They are laughing their asses off in Moscow. Get smart America!”

As usual, the US mainstream media will be swallowing the tale of Russian interference without blinking an eye, but highlighting the extent to which Trump has downplayed Russian interference in the past. It will avoid considering the degree to which Democrats and the left in general are serving Putin’s ends. It will avoid any look in the mirror. It will avoid considering the nature of the Russian state for the smallest of partisan advantages.

Yet the Mueller indictments may have succeeded, despite the left’s best efforts, in drawing attention to the man who is poisoning the water, Vladimir Putin. Can you blame him for trying to wreck the legitimacy of the US political system? Only in the same way as you can blame a cat for hunting mice.

But for the political opposition to Trump, they can be blamed for the most relentless and obstinate short-sightedness.  And as for Trump, if he has just woken up to the extent to which he has been played by Putin, that will be salutory.

 

 

 

Women and Guns

null

After seeing day after day legions of overweight, pink-haired, hairy, sour-pusses with orangutan armpits, groaning on about being oppressed while being the most undeservedly privileged class of useless know-nothings in the known universe, what does it take to produce real women? Israel knows.

Military service—that’s what. As cultural Marxism and feminism continue to poison the relations between the sexes and society, in a superbly interesting screed from the Council of European Canadians (yes, Canada was founded by Europeans, despite what the Premier Mangina may say), our writer suggests that instead of the propaganda peddled by our fake universities, a real education in the real world would be of much greater benefit. For example, in Israel…

All 18-year old women serve two years in the army along with the men. When they get out guess what happens? They get married and start a family. The fertility rate in Israel reached 3.13 children per female in 2015, the highest rate in the industrial world.

Although there have been objections to women in combat, a definite plus would be a rapid reassessment of where one’s real interests lie. As Dr Johnson said, “Depend upon it, sir, when a man knows he is to be hanged in a fortnight, it concentrates his mind wonderfully.”

The effect of combat on women (and men) is to make them suddenly feel a group identity with their fellow soldiers. The local tribesmen with their colourful clothing, bad teeth and exotic beards would be revealed as ruthless killers willing to do almost anything to rape, mutilate and murder any White woman they get their hands on. Women, as a group, tend to think of the personal before the theoretical and so the issue of racial, religious and cultural differences would be transformed into fire, blood and dirt.

Good point. And to appeal to women’s altruism, if they did not want to serve in the military, two years of service in a Peace Corps type of organization in, say, Chad, the Congo, Somalia dishing out AIDS awareness, vaccinations, and clean water and other good things. On top of that, they would get a real education.

This will result in very little actual progress, but it will expose these women to the most horrific social pressures, customs and situations. Child marriage, honour killing, female genital mutilation, polygamy, slavery, second-class status; it’ll be a real education. Some of these women will become casualties, even as some female Peace Corps workers have become rape victims, and the stories of how really, really bad these places are will eventually seep into the public mind.

Almost certainly some of the conscript soldiers referred to earlier will have to be brought in to rescue some of the aid workers just mentioned. We could have a situation of armed women rescuing unarmed women, a scene too delicious for words.

No kidding.

Read the whole piece, you’ll love it. You could bring it up at the next squat-in at the transgender fat collective.
