A short moment of vindication

Wait for a moment and allow yourself the pleasure of realizing that you were right all along. Before politics returns to its usual hysterical mode, contemplate for a moment the discomfiture of the fanatics who cannot find the crime that Trump has not committed. As Scott Adams points out, this is a time when psychologists should be on television talking to the newspeople about mass delusions, group think, and cognitive dissonance. What we do not need is more political analysts pretending they will not be satisfied until they get to the bottom of the Mueller report. The last thing the fanatics want is more information exonerating Trump. We know it, and they know it.

Some sources played it straight and admitted that the dream of impeachment is over. The New Yorker, to my great surprize, admitted that, though trouble for Trump will continue, The Donald is largely out of the woods. Salon thinks that Trump has succeeded in stonewalling Mueller.

Slate is occupying itself handwaving to draw attention away from Trump’s exoneration. The slagging of Robert Mueller can now begin in earnest.

It matters not. To the satisfaction of many, and the consternation of the Left, Trump has had his entrails investigated, and he has been found not guilty of illegal collusion with Russia or its agents.

Matt Taibbi has rendered judgment on the capacity of the media to get anything right, and found them extremely wanting. Is there any reason to believe what you read and see on television? No, it has been demonstrated, there is no such reason. If you still have faith in the media, you are hopelessly naive.

Taibbi writes: ” As a purely journalistic failure, however, WMD was a pimple compared to Russiagate. The sheer scale of the errors and exaggerations this time around dwarfs the last mess. Worse, it’s led to most journalists accepting a radical change in mission. We’ve become sides-choosers, obliterating the concept of the press as an independent institution whose primary role is sorting fact and fiction.”

A lot of institutions are in trouble these days: The Roman Church, the American left wing news-engines, the Canadian federal Liberal Party, to name some that come to mind. They richly deserve it.

Even more nothing

Of all the interpretations of the effect of Brexit that I have heard, the one I like best is seldom discussed. This is Conrad Black’s prediction:

“crashing out will be almost completely painless and imperceptible, and May will either take the hint that she has a serious confidence-problem and go, or fumble along until November and be handed a bus ticket.”

What if they decided to have a catastrophe and no one showed up? In the meantime Theresa May demonstrates a level of incompetence and irresolution that betokens yet another seriously over-promoted woman with a profound faith in herself.

A nothing, a nullity, a zero

Robert Mueller has submitted his report on the Russian collusion story. “Story” is the operative word here. I cite from the report this morning (hyperlink not available) in the National Post (page A2) from reporters of the New York Times: “While the inquiry, started months earlier by the FBI, unearthed a far-ranging Russian influence operation, no evidence has emerged that the president or his aides illegally assisted it.”

I am with Tucker Carlson on this. Those who propagated this false narrative should face social and political obloquy. They will not, of course. They will swiftly move on to the next Big Lie, and be richly rewarded for their shameful behaviour.

The Burial of Richard III

It took a few centuries for the political passions to settle and for the bones to be found. He then received a proper burial ceremony. A proper and fitting ceremony for a dead king.

For a good commentary on his successor, Henry VII Tudor, father of Henry VIII and grandfather of Elizabeth I, see this.

Some of the kings of England have been weasels, main-chancers, weak, unscrupulous murderers, and traitors, even. Although Charles 1st thought that it was impossible for him to have committed treason, Parliament demonstrated to him otherwise by lopping off his head in 1647. With the passage of political leadership to the institution of Prime Minister, it is their assistants rather than kings’ minions who shove a knife into their enemies these days. The Wars of the Roses makes the resignations of the Gerald Butts and the Clerk of Privy Council seem like small stuff.

Jordan Peterson, Presbyterian Divine

The most important aspect of the story today about Jordan Peterson being rejected for a stint at the Cambridge school of divinity is not that they rescinded his application. No sir. What is of interest in the story is that the greatest Calvinist in living memory has found his proper metier, as a minister of the Christian religion.

It took him a while, but it was inevitable. The search for truth leads you where it goes, and the Word of God is more durable than stone.

How the left dominates politics

A UCP candidate has been forced to resign as a result of this exchange.

“When the perpetrator is an Islamist, the denunciations are intermingled with breathless assurances that they do not represent Islam, that Islam is a religion of peace, etc.,” Ford wrote.”When the terrorists are white supremacists, that kind of soul-searching or attempts to understand the sources of their radicalization or their perverse moral reasoning is beyond the pale.”

The CBC reports as follows:

UCP Leader Jason Kenney introduced Ford as his candidate for Calgary-Mountain View on a Facebook video last month. (Caylan Ford/Facebook)

Later in the exchange, Ford said: “I am somehow saddened by the demographic replacement of white peoples in their homelands.

“It’s clear that it will not be a peaceful transition,” she said.

Late Monday night, after PressProgress published its story about the messages, Ford announced on her Facebook page that she is giving up her bid for a seat in the Alberta Legislature.

“To avoid becoming a distraction in this campaign, I have decided to resign as the United Conservative candidate in Calgary-Mountain View,” she said.

It is obvious that any expression of concern for white people or white civilization is both offensive and unacceptable if you want to run for office. This has become a firing offence. We live here, but we have no rights to the expression of pride in our accomplishments or concern for our fate. Why is this?

Dalwhinnie: The candidate in question, Caylan Ford, has a Master’s degree from Oxford. Some redneck from Alberta.

The email exchange was leaked by a newsagency associated with the Broadbent Institute. Its statement in the Who we Are section says:

“The Broadbent Institute is Canada’s leading progressive, independent organization championing change through the promotion of democracy, equality, and sustainability and the training of a new generation of leaders.

When a white guy slaughters people, we take at face value he is doing it in the cause of white nationalism. And we would be correct in that conclusion. When a jihadist slaughters people in the name of Islam, the same people urge us to think that Islam has nothing to do with it, whereas in fact the same jihadist would be at home watching television but for the jihadist urgings of the Koran. More and more people cannot be prevented from observing this disparity.

Cromwell Had A Point—Part 2

Renowned British historian, David Starkey, currently touring Britain and lecturing on “Henry VIII and the First Brexit”, writes in the Daily Mail on the recent developments in Britain pertaining to Brexit:

The referendum was a very British revolution. And it’s been followed by a very British counter-revolution, which shows every sign of succeeding.
Don’t be deceived by the lack of violence or the comparative good manners of those now seizing control. This is a coup, and what is at stake is the nature and legitimacy of Parliament itself.

His main point is that the historical traditions given to us from the Magna Carta are now disintegrating before our eyes…

It is no exaggeration to say that British democracy, which stands in direct line with Magna Carta, is now unravelling before us.
If today’s self-satisfied MPs and Ministers – I have already described them as a Parliament of Pygmies – have no time for the voters, they have little time for history, either.

The Labour Party, once the voice of the working class and the mighty trade union movement has been coopted by prissy Grauniad-reading dilletantes and the Conservative Party has transmogrified into a shape-shifting Blairite Thing.

The People voted 52 to 48 per cent to leave; an estimated 74 per cent of MPs voted to remain. No representative assembly can sustain such a gulf. Either People or Parliament must give way.
This is not the first time such a thing has happened. Before the fall of the Berlin Wall, Communist states were ruled by similarly pampered, out-of-touch and privileged elites who, against all the evidence, claimed to represent the People.

He concludes darkly…

And where will it end? In other very British revolution? Or something nastier? I don’t want to prophesy, good historian that I am, but I fear the worst.

If you read anything today, read Starkey’s article—it’s nuclear.

Half the population will die if the Green Plan is implemented – Patrick Moore

If you are of my school of thought, this is the actual goal of the Greens: mass extermination of humans, based on pure misanthropy. Here is Patrick Moore, former leader of Greenpeace.

Only rising prosperity will guarantee the reduction of the human population. Fertility is dropping everywhere in the world as women become educated. This includes especially Islamic societies, where the birth dearth is taking place in three generations instead of 150 years, as it did here. Women become educated when the societies in which they live pass beyond subsistence, and fossil fuels are the main reason the world has passed beyond subsistence. See Darrell Bricker and John Ibbitson’s Empty Planet: the Shock of Global Population Decline.

Also, Matt Ridley’s The Rational Optimist draws a direct line between fossil fuel consumption and the increasing prosperity of the last four centuries.

According to Ocasio-Cortez and her ilk, this is all a crime against Gaia and a disaster, because, as we all know, food is made in the basement of supermarkets.

Cromwell Had A Point

Oliver Cromwell’s remarks to the Rump Parliament on April 20th, 1653, should be ringing round the halls of Westminster today.

In the Daily Mail, Richard Littlejohn points out that the British people no longer live in a democratic land, and that a rebellion of the political class including the bureaucracy, the media (of course) and the careerists in Parliament itself, has now rendered voting obsolete.

The politicians, who so ardently promised to respect the results of the referendum on leaving the EU, have shown all their cards. They never intended to honour their promises. Their abject surrender to the commissars of the EU has established their lack of character. Indeed, treason is not too strong a word in this case.

In the English Civil War, it was Parliament against the overbearing king who refused to recognize the limits to his powers. Now, it is the political class, the Deep State, the media, and all their accompanying parasites seeking to maintain their power at all costs—even to the extent of destroying the legitimacy of the British state itself.

Now is the time for a new Cromwell to sally forth, fan the flames of liberty, and cleanse the rot from Parliament.

Decline And Fall?

Civil society in Britain is decaying before our eyes. Knife crime, like gun crime, car crime, brick crime, like all-other-inanimate-objects that commit crimes, is rampant in London and other parts of the UK. As in US cities, this violent crime is overwhelmingly young black males killing other young black males, no doubt compelled to do so by the knives they were carrying. Everybody knows what is going on, but everybody is lying about it.

The endless prattle from the state propaganda organs, the BBC, the Grauniad, the Independent, all the dead tree press, moans about increasing police funding, banning knives, more social workers, anything except actually talking about what the problem really is.

An article in Conservative Woman lays it all out, exposing all the bloviating pundits and newspaper editorialists for the frauds and dissemblers they are. The causes are clear to those who have eyes to see…

…widespread fatherlessness and the weakening of the traditional family as the prime building block of a civilisation; the undermining of adult authority; a society diseased by disrespect; policing weakened if not paralysed by cultural Marxism and long interference by politicians and radical lawyers; weak sentencing; a demoralised welfare culture; rapid social and cultural change brought about by massive immigration from cultures sometimes with values and attitudes at odds with our own; the core Judeo-Christian values of Britain turned upside down from school onwards. …I doubt whether you will hear anything more about any of that from our political and media class.

No kidding.

Not from the political class, but these words are precisely what the British National Party (BNP) has being saying for years—and suffering for it from endless lies of the Fake News media. [Even this article substitutes “from cultures sometimes with values and attitudes at odds with our own” in place of Islam, which it really means.]

But knife crime is the least of it. Remember Rotherham from a few years back?

This, of course, was where the police, Labour Party councilors, social workers, and many other apparatchiks in the state authorities turned a blind eye for over a decade on the appalling Muslim rape gangs in the city of Rotherham. Since then, other cities have reported the same problem, and on it goes, seemingly never-ending.

For years, thousands of white girls were drugged and raped almost in broad daylight. Complaints to the police were brushed aside, and the Labour Council members refused to even talk about it. As parents and residents could get no help from the authorities, they approached the only people willing to talk about these criminals—the BNP. Naturally, the BNP and their leader at the time, Nick Griffin, were excoriated, insulted and lied about in the national media for years. In fact, Nick Griffin was prosecuted twice for “incitement of racial hatred” for just reporting on it and demanding that the authorities act, and, please note, Griffin was twice acquitted at jury trials.

Eventually, the story did break through in the national media through the efforts of the BNP and one or two MPs (who are protected by Parliamentary privilege). Since then, stories have been spilling out of other towns and cities with the same sordid tale.

Here again, the …backgrounds of the suspects and victims have not been made available for publication. Do you wonder why?

Griffin’s prosecution and trial was simply a barometer of the state of thought control in Britain at the time, and the intent of the establishment to suppress the story in its entirety.  When the story did break there was not a single apology from the Fake News media (particularly the BBC) for the years of their cover up, nor were any police officers, politicians, councilors or social workers ever punished, or even held accountable for their actions.

After all, what are the lives of young British girls worth when “vibrant multiculturalism” is at stake?
In a stinging article, conservative philosopher Roger Scruton points out, this is…

…a story of rampant child abuse—ignored and abetted by the police—[is] emerging out of the British town of Rotherham. Until now, its scale and scope would have been inconceivable in a civilized country. Its origins, however, lie in something quite ordinary: what one Labour MP called “not wanting to rock the multicultural community boat.”

This is what the disintegration of the moral fiber of the country has amounted to. Sacrificing children’s lives to the false idol of multiculturalism. The media and the political class should be in sackcloth and ashes, not that they would know what that means.

In his article, Scruton concludes…

And when the truth is expressed at last, nobody is fired, no arrests are made, and the elected Police and Communities Commissioner for Rotherham, although forced to resign from the Labour Party, refuses to resign from his job. After a few weeks all will have been swept under the carpet, and the work of destruction can resume.

Eventually, after much kicking and screaming, an inquiry was held and the results made public.  The results clearly indicate the criminal negligence and degeneracy of the authorities, excusing their inaction and, indeed, cooperation with, the rapist gangs.

There should be some kind of medal for the BNP for sticking with the story for so long—and for sticking it to the leftist political class for once.
