It’s Come to This…3

Through all the fog of media Trump loathing and fake news, a blast of realism from none other than…wait for it…Johnny Rotten of Sex Pistols fame. It’s amazing how a few years under the belt and a bit of raw experience sharpens the mind.

Speaking in an interview on ITV’s Good Morning, Britain (h/t Breitbart here), he opined that President Trump was a kind of punk rock politician, a political Sex Pistol, and was being smeared by the left-wing media. Right on, there. He also would like to shake “fantastic” Nigel Farage’s hand for taking on the elites and giving Britain Brexit (“The working class have spoken”).

But wait, there’s more. After dubbing the Royal Family a “fascist regime” back in the 1970s, he’s mellowed somewhat admitting that he is really quite fond of Her Majesty and he “loved the pagentry” of William and Kate’s wedding. Added to that he thought the lefties who celebrated the death of Margaret Thatcher were “loathsome”.

For someone who burst upon the rock music scene with “Never Mind the Bollocks” in the 70s, that’s quite a change. What a pleasant sight it is to see working class boy made good trashing the smug, privileged liberal elites who feed us their daily drivel in the New York Fake Times, the Clinton News Network, and the National Toast.

Keep stickin’ it to ‘em, Johnny…

The Chronicle of Lower Education

Lil’ old Ottawa, capital city of the Great White North, shining outhouse on the banks of the mighty Ottawa river, thrusts its name into the headlines of the world again. The two renowned universities in the city, long-time rivals in the race for leading Bastion of the Absurd, Carleton University and the University of Ottawa, are neck and neck.

The University of Ottawa (affectionately known as U of Zero by Carleton inmates) and Carleton (affectionately known as Cartoon U by U of Zero inmates) are vying for the Bonehead Cup, the academic rival of the Stanley Cup, in the asylum of the Canadian Academy.

A year or so ago, U of Zero commandant, El Presidente Alan Rock, an excrescence of a previous Liberal regime, oversaw the banning of yoga classes on the grounds of “cultural appropriation”. (Will all non-Whites be banned from using computers as they were invented by White people? White men too, shock and horror!)

Not to be outdone, Cartoon U has fought back valiantly, by banning weight scales in the gym. There, that will put a stop to fat-shaming! “Fat Canadian snowflakes need no longer fear the terrifying judgement of gym scales…” as the Daily Telegraph (in Oz) so masterfully put it. Brilliant! That will transform Trigglypuff into the Sugar Plum fairy in the blink of an eye.

Indeed, as universities everywhere retreat from education and transition (?) into indoctrination camps, one wonders if the future supply of psychiatrists will be enough handle the snowflakes as they enter the real world. As for the faculty, there’s no hope for them. As The Donald would say, “SAD!”

Bill Nye—the Pseudo-Science Guy

Tucker Carlson on Fox interviewed Bill Nye, the pseudo-science guy, recently, and absolutely skewered him. Nye tries the old “the science is settled” routine whereupon Carlson asks him how much global warming is due to humans, given that the climate has changed hugely for millions of years without human intervention.

Nye tries the appeal-to-authority argument and tries looking down his nose at Carlson. But Carlson will have none of it. Well, if the science is settled, then you must know what you’re talking about. But, obviously, Nye doesn’t.

To establish a hypothesis, or even give it some credibility, competing hypotheses must be ruled out. It’s no good claiming that the man-made global warming appears to be right (it doesn’t even do that), the others must be shown to be wrong.

Nye doesn’t understand the basics of the scientific approach because he is just a political robot. At the end, his mind just snaps and he starts rambling on about “political leaks etc.”

Scott Adams has analyzed this superbly and says that this is the best example of cognitive dissonance that he’s ever seen. Check them both out here.

Liberal Dhimmitude in Canada

The shallow, vacuous magazine cover that passes for a Prime Minister in Canada is supporting a bill introduced into Parliament by Iqra Khalid, a Muslim MP, to “condemn Islamophobia and all forms of systemic racism and religious discrimination.”

Note that it is not Judo-phobia or Christiano-phobia or Hinduo-phobia, only Islamophobia. A phobia is an irrational fear. Islamophobia means an irrational fear of Islam. But since Islamic societies treat women like cattle, stone them to death, cut their heads off in public, enslave Christian girls and murder gays, it is hardly irrational to fear Islam.

Islamophobia is another fake word invented by the PC class to suppress criticism of Islam and to criminalize people who point out its deleterious effects on free societies.

Khalid was a member of the Muslim Student Association when she was at York University, an institution well known by its reputation for anti-Semitic student activities. A book handed out at York University in 2015 contained an edifying chapter on “Wife Disciplining”.  Some famous alumni of that Association include:

Canada’s most infamous terrorist, Ahmed Sayed Khadr, was radicalized while a part of the Muslim Student Association at the University of Ottawa.[1] Calgary suicide bomber Salma Ashrafi was the President of his Muslim Student Association.[2] Others such as Awso Peshdary, John Maguire, Khadar Khalib, Chiheb Esseghaier, Youssef Sakhir, Samir Halilovic, Zakria Habibi and Ferid Imam all had ties to the Muslim Student Association in Canada. (h/t TSEC)

Further interesting tidbits concerning Khalid reveal:

Ms Khalid is the daughter of Dr. Hafiz Khalid, a long-time associate of the ISNA and formerly a vocal supporter of Jamaat-e-Islami….
…The ISNA ‘Development Fund’ had its charitable status revoked for funding terrorism in 2013. The ultimate recipient of the money was the Jamaat-e-Islami, which is seen as the south Asian wing of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Toronto Star also reported on extensive fraud inside the ISNA whereby money for the poor was squandered.

Why is the Liberal Party of Canada, which is constantly preening itself and bragging endlessly about its support for women’s rights, and the Prime Minister, who describes himself as “a feminist”, considering supporting a bill designed expressly to suppress criticism of the most misogynistic cult active in the world today? Hypocrisy is not a strong enough word.

Islamists are infiltrating the Liberal Party with a view to use it to further their cause, the first of which is to suppress free speech and criticism of Islam.

American Revolution Redux

The media squirmed, the Establishment fumed, and the ever-demented left took to the streets for violence and mayhem.

A call to arms and a call to America to reclaim her heritage as the leading light of liberty in the world; to put her people to work, to reject identity politics and to cleave to all things the citizens of the nation have in common; and to learn loyalty, not only to the nation, but to one another.
….Thus Spake The Donald.
The Donald delivered a remarkable speech at the Inauguration, rejecting the creaking platitudes and oily pablum (aka Obama’s “soaring rhetoric”), thereby placing the country firmly on a path toward reaffirming the nationality of America, toward re-employing American working people, and toward a new America on the world stage as a free nation, not an empire builder.

True to his character of “never give a inch”, he gave them all both barrels. After eight years of Obama’s corrosive policies eating away at the roots of the American nation and culture, President Trump has set the stage for a house cleaning the country hasn’t seen in decades.

Racial divisions, fueled by the spiteful identity politics of the left must be swept away. The education system, poisoned by years of cultural Marxism, must be thoroughly reformed, Western Civilization taught to students, standards invigorated, and the unholy racket of public service unions and the Democrat Party broken.

The immigration laws must be enforced and all criminal aliens deported. The years of lawlessness under the Obama administration must end. “Sanctuary cities”, or any institution that refuses to enforce federal law must be denied federal funding and prosecuted. Attorney General Sessions seems the man for job.

At the root of it all is the idea that America is a nation, is a people, has a culture, and the government serves her citizens whose well-being is the prime responsibility of government. To be a conservative means to recognize these facts. Without them, there is no nation or people or culture to conserve.

While competition and free trade are, in moderation, advantageous to prosperity, they are not ends in themselves. Like oxygen; too little, and the organism suffocates; too much, and the metabolism is poisoned. The art of good government is to balance the opposing forces, always with the objective of preserving the nation and its culture.

The political class of the US has carried them to extremes, resulting in the impoverishment of much of suburban and rural America. This has led to the ruin of millions of families in America’s heartland and the enrichment of an arrogant and parasitic establishment in a few coastal cities and the corridors of Washington’s halls of power. The bailout mania after the 2008 crash has only enriched the New York Money Power. The objectives of the political class have, until now, been to weaken and destroy all nation states and national democracies with political thought control, mass immigration of incompatible cultures through the Big Lie of multiculturalism, and the destruction of national cohesion by pushing identity politics everywhere—especially in schools.

The pursuit of identity politics, where everyone is a hyphenated citizen, black, wimmin, queer, weirdo, (never white), only serves to divide all citizens into tribes and to destroy our common interests. Thus divided groups harboring enmity to others make us easier to control by the forces of national disintegration.

The pursuit of mass immigration, particularly of Islamic immigration, is designed to import an unassimilable culture into the West. This misogynistic, anti-gay, anti-Semitic culture, unreformed from seventh century Arabia, is subversion of the values enshrined in the constitutions of many Western states. Allowing sharia law a foothold in any country is the first step toward surrendering our freedoms to a multicultural world order dominated by the oligarchies of the EU and the New York Money Power. Islam is inimical to all the values that form the bases of the nations of Western Civilization—it is a totalitarianism similar to communism, but without the charm. The destruction of faith in the historic structures of Western Civilization is the object of multiculturalism—the death of free nations. Any government of any free nation must put the safety and integrity of its citizenry prior to all other considerations. This is why the immigration issue is of paramount importance and why the establishment powers wish to suppress discussion of it at every opportunity. Trump just blew all that out of the water.

So, buckle up folks, it’s going to be a great ride. Finally, a leader to take on the rotten establishments of the West and ready to inject some self discipline and self respect into the national and international discourse. No wonder the political class and its toady media are having a bad case of the vapors.

And, as an addendum, the “wimmin’s march”, a parade of ill-mannered, lefty slags, perfectly illustrates why Trump won the women’s vote too.  And guess who was one of the organizers—Linda Sarsour, a pro-Palestine Muslim activist who advocates sharia law in the West and has ties to the terrorist Hamas.  A fine example of womanhood!

Suck it up, buttercup.

America’s Lying Media—Part 2

If you thought that the lying MSM in the US could sink any lower than the gutter, you’re right! They’re now in the sewer.

Not satisfied with being the cheering squads for Hillary Rodent Clinton, traumatized by their election loss to Donald Trump, they are now attempting, with the help of rogue spooks, to delegitimize the incoming administration. Good luck with that.

The scurrilous “dossier” (sounds more impressive than “document”) that purports to reveal dirt on Trump is so obviously fake it would be an embarassment to a satirical site like The Onion. The media have sunk to the Big Lie technique; if you’re going to lie, make it a biggy. The last shreds of their credibility have gone up in smoke.

The Establishment is set on provoking international tensions and war around the world. After the failure of their jihadi pals in Syria, where they have been defeated by the Russia/Iran/Turkey coalition, the American Deep State is hell-bent on creating an atmosphere of hysteria against Russia to justify further aggressive actions against any state that will not bend to their will. After the collapse of communism, NATO (read the US) gave commitments to the Russian Federation not to move military assets up to the Russian border. These commitments have been broken many times over. No wonder the Russians are concerned. The US administration under the man-child Obama has been woefully irresponsible in international affairs.

The real “aggression” in the world is coming from the US. We now know the WMD propaganda about Iraq was a pack of lies. Iraq was destroyed and the ground laid for the rise of Islamic State. Libya was attacked and destroyed, its infrastructure devastated, and its leader murdered, all under the watch of Hillary Rodent Clinton. And for what purpose? It is now a failed state riven by jihadist bandits and consumed by civil war. Egypt was almost destroyed by Obama’s support of the Morsi regime, but here the Egyptian army saved the day. Another smack on the head for the US Deep State.

To say that Russia is a threat to Europe is nonsense—it was a CIA-backed coup in Ukraine that generated chaos on Russia’s border. This is all a cover for more US meddling in the Middle East, particularly as they have been outmaneuvered by the Russians and Iranians. In the US, the Democrat Party is now the war party, busily whipping up hysteria in their intellectually challenged supporters and their lapdog media.

This could all backfire on them very badly. If further enquiries reveal underhanded attempts of bureaucrats in the intelligence services to subvert the incoming administration, it could give Trump a golden opportunity to cut them down to size and remind them that the people rule in America. This is the importance of the Trump presidency.

President Trump should immediately set investigations in motion on January 20th. Political appointees from the Obama years in the CIA and NSA should be fired immediately and heads placed on spikes. Clapper, the DNI, already has a solid record of lying to Congress (thank you Edward Snowden). Brennan and others in the CIA must also go. If investigations of their behaviors result in prosecutions, jail them.

As for the media, Trump’s first press conference should set the tone for the future. Return their favor—show them no respect. He should radically reshape communications with the public, through more youtube presentations, townhalls, social media and invite more citizen participation in questions. Other than that, let the media sink into the swamp they have created; they will not be missed.

After the Glorious Inauguration on the 20th, he should act swiftly, extensively and ruthlessly. Real Americans will love him for it.

Craft Whisky

Now that every young hip urban metrosexual is drinking “craft beer” made by a “hobbyist” with distinctly anti-Trump views in a “microbrewery”, you don’t have to be left behind if you are older and wiser. Beckon the rise of “craft whisky”! In particular, Balcones from Texas.

After a tumultuous two years between the founders and the money, their new operation in Waco is up to speed producing great whisky and a bourbon with Texas corn. The old single malt that won all the awards, is what is being shipped now and it was made under the railroad trestle at the old location. The new production, in their historic warehouse property, will start shipping sometime in the summer.

That’s Queer!

We’re all used to the lapdog media portraying any gay or lesbian as some lefty, pinko or Democrat (but I repeat myself) weirdo, leading us to believe that the entire LGBTQ community is simply an appendage of the political class and the university and college soviets that control all thought.

Well, surprise, surprise, LGBTQ Nation ran a poll recently for 2016 Person of the Year and guess who won? Not some oily Democrat apparatchik or some clammy-handed pajama boy selling Obamacare, but, none other than MILO (formerly Milo Yiannopoulos), senior Breitbart editor and Internet Super Villain famed for his fanatical support for Donald “Daddy” Trump (who will make America FABULOUS Again!) and the “Dangerous Faggot Tour” of American Re-Education camps formerly known as universities. He pulled in 70% of all the votes.

Even more surprising was the runner-up with 20% of the votes—none other than conservative Republican Vice President-Elect Mike Pence! No-one else came close. Go figure. Next time some pinko tries to tell you that the LGBTQ community is so prog, point them to this.

George Soros analyzes the world situation, and fails the test

 

 

George Soros has published a state of the world letter at Project Syndicate, which I recommend you read. His analysis shares several important features with Donald Trump’s, and gives insight into a man who otherwise consistently misapprehends what is the real threat to an open society, of the type to which every reader of this blog is committed, I can say without fear of contradiction.

First he shares the concerns of Karl Popper for the preservation of what Popper called “the open society”, the kind we live in, and the defence of same against closed societies, such as Russia, and other tribal or mafia states.

Second, he adverts to the liberalization of the flows of capital after the fall of Communism in 1989.

The major development since then has been the globalization of financial markets, spearheaded by advocates who argued that globalization increases total wealth. After all, if the winners compensated the losers, they would still have something left over.

As with Trump, Soros feels that the losers were not compensated adequately, a point they share in common. Soros continues:

 

Because financial capital is an indispensable ingredient of economic development, and few countries in the developing world could generate enough capital on their own, globalization spread like wildfire. Financial capital could move around freely and avoid taxation and regulation.

Soros should know whereof he speaks.

Globalization has had far-reaching economic and political consequences. It has brought about some economic convergence between poor and rich countries; but it increased inequality within both poor and rich countries. In the developed world, the benefits accrued mainly to large owners of financial capital, who constitute less than 1% of the population. The lack of redistributive policies is the main source of the dissatisfaction that democracy’s opponents have exploited.

In particular, Soros observes that the European Union has stopped being a relationship among peers and has become an arrangement between creditor and debtor countries. Institutional rigidity in the treaty uniting Europe, and the inability to fix what is wrong with the Maastricht Treaty, have compounded the trouble.

So far so good. Globalization has been bad for certain groups, and the European Union is dysfunctional. At this point Soros steps off the mesa and starts walking on air, à la Wiley Coyote. Enter the archvillain Vladimir Putin.

“At first, he [Putin] tried to control social media. Then, in a brilliant move, he exploited social media companies’ business model to spread misinformation and fake news, disorienting electorates and destabilizing democracies. That is how he helped Trump get elected.”

“With economic growth lagging and the refugee crisis out of control, the EU is on the verge of breakdown and is set to undergo an experience similar to that of the Soviet Union in the early 1990s. Those who believe that the EU needs to be saved in order to be reinvented must do whatever they can to bring about a better outcome.”

With the exception of his demonization of Putin, I am not sure there is much to distinguish his views of what is going on in Europe and the world from those of Trump or Nigel Farage. So why the hostility to both from Soros?

What I find ludicrous in all the ravings of the anti-Trumpists, is their total and complete misperception of Trump, who is the least right-wing, least ideological, least establishmentarian, most centrist, most pragmatic Republican  President since Eisenhower. The guy is a positive leftie compared to Hillary, in terms of economic intervention. He only appears “conservative” because he does not give a damn for political correctness. This in turn shows how far leftism has strayed from an economic agenda of wealth redistribution to a values agenda of redistribution of victimhood.

The political positions which anti-Trumpists take in consequence, of supporting the arch-globalizer Hillary Rodham Clinton, against the conclusions of their own analysis, is incomprehensible.

Yet there is some element of Jewish political hysteria  at play here in Soros and other neo-conservatives. Those who are always sniffing for Nazis are quick to perceive it in any popular movement of ordinary people to reject the terms of governance laid down by the political classes. Thus Soros can talk of a refugee crisis but not of an Islamic invasion crisis. Soros can observe the destruction of faith in the European Union but is reluctant to see any merit in those who oppose its plans for further integration into the politically irresponsible morass of the European pan-state.

I cite David Goldman, who channels Spengler, in his latest analysis of the mess that Jewish neo-conservatives have got themselves into by opposing Trump. It is relevant to the claims about Jewish political hysteria that I made above.

Goldman cites Irving Kristol:

“Jews to this day continue to combine an almost pathologically intense concern for politics with a seemingly equally intense inclination toward political foolishness, often crossing over into the realm of the politically suicidal,” wrote the late Irving Kristol, the original neoconservative. His son Bill Kristol proved the Jewish proclivity for political hara-kiri remains undiminished in his generation by doing everything he could to prevent the election of Donald Trump—along with such high-profile Jewish conservatives as pundit Charles Krauthammer and Commentary  Editor John Podhoretz.

I find that Soros, Krauthammer, Kristol , Podhoretz and others, though different in their politics, are alike in being highly intelligent and completely unable to understand the Trump phenomenon. Indeed, they are barking up the wrong tree. They are not alone in their folly, as many a goyish Democrat will  attest, but when all you have is the hammer of anti-Nazidom, everyone is suspected to be Nazi nail. It is time to stop looking for Hitler in every goy.

If there were any further evidence needed that the enemies of the Jews are now on the left, look at the lead article in the National Post today. Alan Dershowitz now realizes that Obama has betrayed the Jews. A little late, don’t you think, Alan? This is why every ignorant 18 year old will trust an experienced  sergeant to lead them in battle in preference to an officer whose only military education has been to read books. And this is why the  cunning of Trump has been preferred to the vapidity of his former rival, Hillary Clinton.

____________________________________

And for a devastating critique of Soros, who is blamed for the destruction of the Democratic Party, read this from Daniel Greenfield:

Trump’s victory, like Brexit, came because the left had left the white working class behind. Its vision of the future as glamorous multicultural city states was overturned in a single night. The idea that Soros had committed so much power and wealth to was of a struggle between populist nationalists and responsible internationalists. But, in a great irony, Bush was hardly the nationalist that Soros believed. Instead Soros spent a great deal of time and wealth to unintentionally elect a populist nationalist.

Leftists used Soros money to focus on their own identity politics obsessions leaving the Dems with little ability to interact with white working class voters. The Ivy and urban leftists who made up the core of the left had come to exist in a narrow world with little room for anything and anyone else.

Soros turned over the Democrats to political fanatics least likely to be able to recognize their own errors. His protégés repeated the great self-destruction of the Soviet Union on a more limited scale….

George Soros spent a fortune to turn a national party favorable to the left into an organization that has difficulty appealing to anyone not on the left. He wanted to control a country he did not understand. And, as the left so often does, he achieved his goals and in doing so destroyed them.
