===== TOP OF THE FOLD =====

(HT VladTepes)

A guy I know in the UK says it's "amazing" how this is not being discussed.
+++


My Nom de Plume is NITZAKHON, Hebrew for victory.  We – the West – need more victory.  More importantly, we in the West, the greatest civilization to have ever existed, need to adopt a victory mentality, not a live-with-the-pain one.

A quote, which the article states is at the entrance to the Visitors Centre of the European Parliament:

“National sovereignty is the root cause of the most crying evils of our times….The only final remedy for this evil is the federal union of the peoples.”

More on this:


Quote (bolding added):

The European Union has always been sold as a benign economic project concerned with trading in a single, tariff-free market plus membership of a customs union. The truth is that the European Union is, and always has been, a nation building project with the aim of replacing the independent nation states of Europe with a single state centrally controlled by appointed bureaucrats based in Brussels.

If the European Union is not a nation building project then Parliament needs to explain to the people why a benign economic project concerned only with a tariff-free single market and a customs union needs an army, a navy and an air force along with a flag, a national anthem, a Parliament, a judiciary and embassies abroad.


Unbeknown to the British public, the political elite have been involved in the planning of a European Defence Force since its inception with the intention of fully integrating the British military into its structure. This would require surrendering command and control to a Eurocrat who may hold historical grudges against the British people especially now since they voted to leave their failing nation building project.


Their loyalty to the European Union is so fanatical they are determined to hand over what remains of peoples’ sovereignty as well as their armed forces to a cabal of faceless, unaccountable bureaucrats in Brussels who cannot be removed via the ballot box.

They don’t care that their utter contempt for the people they are supposed to be representing is out in the open. Remaining in the EU is everything to them, it is their Caliphate.    

That last sentence captures it.

Anyone who has read me for a while knows that I sometimes scream from my heart: “What? What? What? WHAT could keep a nation’s ‘leaders’ so dead-set on a course – surrender to the EU with global borderless migration – despite the undeniable consequences to the peoples already there?” 

The answer is simple: it’s a religion.  A religion in the perfectibility of man and society if only enough power were centralized to do it across the entire globe.  And there are few things in the world more dangerous than zealots whose faith blinds them to counter-evidence.  Echoing this (or am I echoing them?):


Quote:

Hell is never far when fanatics are determined to create heaven on earth, especially when technology is available to apparently make their visions come true.

And in particular, with respect to the “climate crisis”, I’ve asked this for years now…

Imagine if you believed, truly believed, that humanity’s output of CO2 was a dire threat to the entire biosphere?  What would you NOT do to save it?  Destroy technological civilization?  Wipe out billions of people?  If the alternative, you absolutely believe, is the end of life on earth what stops you from mass genocide on a scale that would horrify Stalin and Mao?  Another quote from the above link (links included, bolding added):

Sometimes fiction predicts what bureaucrats fail to forecast. Tom Clancy … sketched out something similar to the anthrax attack in his 1996 Rainbow Six. The story describes a "master plan to wipe out the majority of the human race, called 'the Project'. Dr. John Brightling, a staunch environmentalist who heads a biotechnology firm called the Horizon Corporation ... plans to launch a sophisticated bioweapon attack  ... The 'chosen few', having been provided with the real vaccine, would then inherit the emptied world, convinced of their justification for mass murder as 'saving the world' from the encroachment of destructive humanity."

And please see my CLIMATE CHANGE section for more on this lunacy.



===== ISLAMIC INVASION & RELATED =====







Feel the wonderful effects of “diversity” yet?

+++



Now look at me and tell me there isn’t a plan to Islamicize the world.



===== IMMIGRATION TO AMERICA – LEGAL OR ILLEGAL =====


Bet your bottom dollar that those persons who got in – and don’t get me wrong, it’s a catastrophe and needs to be addressed, and the Bahamas helped – would immediately scream ASYLUM and have the ACLU and others sending lawyers to help them.

+++


Hence the Dem’s obsession with illegals – replacing the population with those who will slavishly vote “D” forever.  Why, it’s almost as if they had conspired to do it:




===== NATIONAL SECURITY =====


Look, I like “The Stach”… I’ve heard him speak in person, and I think he is a true patriot.  But we need to pick and choose our battles.  One of the things where we’re fighting the wind is here, quote:

Between withdrawing and entering into a spurious and fruitless peace agreement with the Taliban, there is a third alternative: leaving with no peace agreement, which will never be honored by the Taliban anyway, and working to contain the jihad threat from spreading beyond Afghanistan. But no one seems to be considering that.

And therein is a key point.  One cannot forge an agreement with those whose very world view sees any agreement with the infidels as something infinitely mutable and utterly meaningless when it becomes convenient to abrogate the agreement.  Isolate, quarantine, and stomp flat if they get uppity.  No boots on the ground, just overlapping craters on the ground.

On the flip side of things, I think he is correct on Iran.  It’s not a matter of IF we end up in a war with them, it’s WHEN… unless – please G-d – their own people can oust the mullahs.  Related:


He also deserves enormous credit for reimposing sanctions to bring the Iranian regime to its knees, having correctly described the Obama-brokered nuclear deal as the worst deal ever.

The problem, however, is that he thinks he can negotiate a better one. Trump’s flaw is that he thinks every situation is a potential deal; he thinks that everyone in the world has a price at which they can be bought off.

This is yet another fantasy that he shares with the left. For they also think that everyone is susceptible to a negotiated compromise, even religious or other fanatics for whom rational self-interest can never be the clincher.

The left don’t believe in defeating the enemy, however implacable these foes may be. They believe in agreeing a deal with them.

That’s why they are so obsessed with peace processes, otherwise known as appeasement processes. These processes cannot acknowledge the non-negotiable aspect of unconscionable agendas because that would cause them to fail. And they cannot be allowed to fail because the alternative is military action, which must be avoided at all costs.

36 minute video.  This is the thing: Sunni and Shiite WILL COOPERATE against the infidel.

+++


There’s a nugget here that needs highlighting (italics in original):

Bernie Sanders thinks that a “peace agreement” will keep the peace between Arabs and Israelis. He has never heard of the Treaty of al-Hudaibiyya, which Mohammed made with the Meccans in 628 A.D. It was to have lasted ten years; after 18 months, feeling his side had grown sufficiently strong, Muhammad broke the treaty and attacked the Meccans. That Treaty of al-Hudaibiyya has ever since been taken by Muslims as an example to emulate. The principle of Western law since Roman times, that Pacta sunt servanda – “treaties are to be obeyed” – is not a principle Muslims observe in their treaties with Unbelievers.

Sort-of related:


Because we in the West tend to assume people think like us globally – and are bound by the idea of keeping their word.  Many, many cultures are NOT like that.  We in the West tend to be very straight-forward compared to such cultures.  For example, consider the Islamic form of deception called Tawriya:

===== COUP & CLINTON =====


Gallows.  Now.

+++


This is promising.  Until I see perp walks and, better yet, jail time – not at “Club Fed” either – I’m not holding my breath.  I WANT RESULTS.  Ideally, I want forests of skulls mounted on pikes, decaying until their bleached skulls glisten in the sun as a lesson to the next ten generations of Democrats of the price of sedition and treason.

That SHOULD leave a mark.



===== HEALTHCARE =====

Deathcare.  Coming here for all you Deplorables, infants, elderly… and HELD DOWN BY HER FAMILY?????



===== 2020 / ELECTIONS IN GENERAL =====

The key word being “should”.

Don’t get cocky.  CHEAT can overcome an awful lot.



===== ENEMEDIA =====


It’s not about truth.  It’s about perception in the public’s mind.



===== CONSERVATISM =====


+++


I agree with this.

+++


Precisely.  Which is why the Left has been infiltrating the courts for decades.

+++


It is absolute NOT RIGHT that ONE judge – judge-shopped and selected – can stop a law nationwide.

+++


Government f*cks up pretty much everything it touches.



===== BIG TECH FASCISM / TECHNOPHOBIA IN GENERAL =====


The irony is that, doubtless, algorithms will get tweaked to move eyeballs away from the evidence that supports this move.  The enemedia will also do their part to deny-deny-deny this is a problem.  More:


Just wow.

+++


We’re playing with the very fabric of life – the hubris of this is staggering.



===== CULTURE WARS (BROAD BASED) =====


Quote:

Let me tell you what is going to happen in my house. We don’t subscribe to the current false notion that gender identity is fluid or vast. There are two genders; male and female. Your chromosomes determine your sex. Whatever mental gymnastics are going on inside the minds of people who want to believe otherwise are none of my business. However, I will never lie to my child about biology.

Damn right.

+++


I agree, but there’s more.  Leftism is a FAITH; Leftists are MISSIONARIES.  They are driven by an absolute belief that they can – through Socialism – create a world without war, hunger, poverty, hatred, etc.  So put yourself in those shoes: if you believed with all your heart you could accomplish this, would you not view anyone opposing you as evil, outright evil?

+++


Gag.  Retch.

+++


Pushback.



===== THE COMING CW2 =====


HA HA!  Do I think “some kind” of hot CW2 is coming?  Yes.  But I still cling to the hope – perhaps only a fool’s hope – that words and actions like this can wake the majority of the Left up to what’s truly at stake here.  And that they, then, will pull back.

+++


I want, desperately, to find a flaw in this logic.  If there is one, I don’t see it.

+++


Quote:

The 2020 election is turning out to be even more important than we thought.

We MUST re-elect Trump, keep the Senate, and retake the House.



===== PRO-LIFE =====


How… how… how does a human being with a soul look at a living baby and let it die?  Quote (links in original):

But OBGYN Kathi Aultman, a former medical director at a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic, testified that nurse Julie Wilkinson — who assisted an abortionist with late-term abortions — told her "that the vast majority of abortions that they performed were done for convenience, not for fetal anomalies or maternal health problems."

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that at least 143 survivors of abortion were left to die after being born between 2003 and 2014. The CDC also said this is likely an underestimate.

Compelling.

Thomas Sowell.  Enough said.

And yet, despite this and many other data points, people will bleat “It can’t happen here”.  Bringing up my first essay on guns with some of those data points listed:




===== ECONOMY / TRADE =====


If they, somehow, get the federal government to bail them out – it’s over, and sooner than any of us can imagine.  Every single entity will take that precedent to push for the same result.  There are just three ends to that game:

1) printing money to feed that maw (which doesn’t end well)

2) borrowing money (from who?) to feed that maw (which doesn’t end well)

3) defaulting and the whole system collapses (which doesn’t end well)

+++


Too worried that their six-figure bonuses might only be four-figure.



===== LEFTIST VIOLENCE & TREASON =====


The Left has a LONG GAME.  They think and plan in terms of decades, if not centuries.  They have no honor, no decency, no ethics, no morality… and are utterly-dedicated MISSIONARIES to make us Socialist.

+++


America MAY be over even if Trump wins in 2020.  If the Left wins, America IS over.

They make ACTUAL DEATH THREATS by the bushel, and complain about this.  Project much?  Related:

Does this not rise to the definition of treason?  If not, how not?



===== ISLAM IN GENERAL =====


Oh well done.

+++


Excellent questions for the next “Ask a Muslim anything…” nights in your local church.  Just expect to get thrown out because what they’re really running is “Kiss a Muslim’s ass…” night.

+++


You’d think a little research into how Muslims view dogs could have prevented this.



===== CLIMATE CHANGE / SCIENCE IN GENERAL =====


So much for the “end of snow”.

+++


I. Just. Can’t. Make. This. Up.

+++


A number of things to unpack here, but in particular I noticed a couple of gems:

[U]sing a computer program developed by warming gadfly James Hansen, predicted that. “In the next 50 years” — by 2021 — fossil-fuel dust injected by man into the atmosphere “could screen out so much sunlight that the average temperature could drop by six degrees,” resulting in “new glaciers that could eventually cover huge areas…” “If sustained over a period of several years, such a temperature decrease over the whole globe is believed to be sufficient to trigger an ice age.”

Would this be the same James Hansen who is now, firmly, a Warmist?  An enterprising journalist – if only! – could get a good story simply by asking Hansen “What changed your mind?”  One other quote:

At the first Earth Day celebration, in 1970, environmentalist Nigel Calder warned, “The threat of a new ice age must now stand alongside nuclear war as a likely source of wholesale death and misery for mankind.”

So they were this dead sure a new ice age was coming, and this dead sure it was a lethal threat.  And now it’s warming that’s the threat, and they’re dead sure of this too.

+++


Quote (bolding added):

… for the moment, plane passengers have been spared the ordeal of being grounded by idiots who think threatening to kill people is a legitimate way of battling global warming.

And when that desn’t work?  They’ll move on to actual killing.  Because SCIENCE.  And SCIENCE is what drove the Nazis.  SCIENCE is what drove the Communists.

+++


How… accidental.

+++


It’s a cult.



===== ATTENTION AMERICAN JEWS =====


“Jews are not people” says a Muslim immigrant to Europe.  And you want more of them here????



===== SOCIALISM =====


Quote:

In one decade we went from a Left that insisted vehemently that Republicans were only calling them socialists as negative spin, to one with so many declared socialists it looks like the Berkley faculty lounge.

ROFL!

===== MISCELLANEOUS =====


I actually sympathize with this decision; kids – and adults too! – eat way too much sugar.  But… my oldest will not drink regular milk, only chocolate milk.  Fortunately they’ve taken to yogurt smoothies that have a lot less sugar, and some fruit content to boot.  Do I like chocolate milk as a kid food?  No.  But in this case, given that or no milk at all, I’ll take the former.
