'Progress'? McDonald's Moves to Automation

From here:


It started out as a "Fight for 15," but McDonald’s employees may not be lovin' it when their company's new policy kicks in.

The popular fast food chain has announced that it will now replace its front counter employees with kiosks -- and that may just be the beginning.

According to the Tribunist, there will soon be limited interaction between front-of-house employees and customers. Tim Kae of CNBC also reports that the technology upgrades, which are part of what McDonald’s calls their "Experience of the Future," includes digital ordering kiosks that will be offered in 2,500 restaurants by the end of the year, along with table delivery. These systems are already in test markets in select stores.

There will still be some actual employees in the store though, as there will be kitchen staff as well as human employees to handle some of the electronic orders. But those machines are set to replace a lot of the workforce, and at a much lower cost.

This trend of robots taking over the world comes during a left-led push for a higher minimum wage for entry-level workers in the United States, especially those in fast food services.

While the news isn't good for employees, shareholders seem to be happy about the move to automation. McDonald's stock prices have risen 26 percent in just the last year. 

This move by McDonald's and it's immediate and projected success may strike a blow to those calling for a $15 minimum wage. Rather than see their wages nearly doubled, many employees are about to find themselves out of a job entirely.

I suppose that's progress. Or, at least, "progressive."

How the Globalist Banksters Destroy America

From BRANDON SMITH via the Bob Livingston newsletter

I have written on the subject of the Federal Reserve's deliberate sabotage of the U.S. economy many times in the past. In fact, I even once referred to the Fed as an "economic suicide bomber." I still believe the label fits perfectly, and the Fed's recent actions I think directly confirm my accusations.
Back in 2015, when I predicted that the central bankers would shift gears dramatically into a program of consistent interest rate hikes and that they would begin cutting off stimulus to the U.S. financial sector and more specifically stock markets, almost no one wanted to hear it. The crowd-think at that time was that the Fed would inevitably move to negative interest rates, and that raising rates was simply "impossible."

Many analysts, even in the liberty movement, quickly adopted this theory without question. Why? Because of a core assumption that is simply false; the assumption that the Federal Reserve's goal is to maintain the U.S. economy at all costs or at least maintain the illusion that the economy is stable. They assume that the U.S. economy is indispensable to the globalists and that the U.S. dollar is an unassailable tool in their arsenal. Therefore, the Fed would never deliberately undermine the American fiscal structure because without it "they lose their golden goose."

This is, of course, foolish nonsense.

Since its initial inception from 1913-1916, the Federal Reserve has been responsible for the loss of 98 percent of the dollar's buying power. Idiot analysts in the mainstream argue that this statistic is not as bad as it seems because "people have been collecting interest" on their cash while the dollar's value has been dropping, and this somehow negates or outweighs any losses in purchasing value. These guys are so dumb they don't even realize the underlying black hole in their own argument.

IF someone put their savings into an account or into treasury bonds and earned interest from the moment the Fed began quickly undermining dollar value way back in 1959, then yes, they MIGHT have offset the loss by collecting interest. However, this argument, insanely, forgets to take into account all the millions of people who were born long after the Fed began its devaluation program. What about the "savers" born in 1980, or 1990? They didn't have the opportunity to collect interest to offset the losses already created by the Fed. They were born into an economy where saving is inherently more difficult because a person must work much harder to save the same amount of capital that their parents saved, not to mention purchase the same items their parents enjoyed, such as a home or a car.

Over the decades, the Fed has made it nearly impossible for households with one wage earner to support a family. Today, men and women who should be in the prime of their careers and starting families are for the first time in 130 years more likely to be living at home with their parents than any other living arrangement.

People are more likely to be living with their parents now than back during time periods in which young people actually wanted to stay close to their parents to take care of them. That is to say, most young people are stuck at home because they can't afford to do anything else, not because they necessarily want to be there.

This is almost entirely a symptom of central bank devaluation of the currency and its purchasing potential. The degradation of the American wage earner since the Fed fiat machine began killing the greenback is clear as day.

The Fed is also responsible for almost every single major economic downturn since it was established. As I have noted in the past, Ben Bernanke openly admitted that the Fed was the root cause of the prolonged economic carnage during the Great Depression on Nov. 8, 2002, in a speech given at "A Conference to Honor Milton Friedman … On the Occasion of His 90th Birthday:"

"In short, according to Friedman and Schwartz, because of institutional changes and misguided doctrines, the banking panics of the Great Contraction were much more severe and widespread than would have normally occurred during a downturn.
Let me end my talk by abusing slightly my status as an official representative of the Federal Reserve. I would like to say to Milton and Anna: Regarding the Great Depression. You're right, we did it. We're very sorry. But thanks to you, we won't do it again."

Bernanke is referring in part to the Fed's program of raising interest rates into an economic downturn, exacerbating the situation in the early 1930's and making the system highly unstable. He lies and says the Fed "won't do it again;" they are doing it RIGHT NOW.

The Fed was the core instigator behind the credit and derivatives bubble that led to the crash in 2008, a crash that has caused depression-like conditions in America that we are still to this day dealing with. Through artificially low interest rates and in partnership with sectors of government, poor lending standards were highly incentivised and a massive debt trap was created. Former Fed chairman Alan Greenspan openly admitted in an interview that the central bank KNEW an irrational bubble had formed, but claims they assumed the negative factors would "wash out."

Yet again, a Fed chairman admits that they either knew about or caused a major financial crisis. So we are left two conclusions — they were either too stupid to speak up and intervene, or, they wanted these disasters to occur.

Today, we are faced with two more brewing bubble catastrophes engineered by the Fed: The stock market bubble and the dollar bubble.

The stock market bubble is rather obvious and openly admitted at this point. As the former head of the Federal Reserve Dallas branch, Richard Fisher admitted in an interview with CNBC, the U.S. central bank in particular has made its business the manipulation of the stock market to the upside since 2009:

"What the Fed did — and I was part of that group — is we front-loaded a tremendous market rally, starting in 2009.
It's sort of what I call the "reverse Whimpy factor" — give me two hamburgers today for one tomorrow."

Fisher went on to hint at his very reserved view of the impending danger:
I was warning my colleagues, "Don't go wobbly if we have a 10 to 20 percent correction at some point... Everybody you talk to… has been warning that these markets are heavily priced." [In reference to interest rate hikes]

The Fed "front-loaded" the incredible bull market rally through various methods, but one of the key tools was the use of near-zero interest rate overnight loans from the central bank, which corporations around the world have been exploiting since the 2008 crash to fund stock buybacks and pump up the value of stock markets. As noted by Edward Swanson, author of a study from Texas A&M on stock buybacks used to offset poor fundamentals:

"We can't say for sure what would have happened without the repurchase, but it really looks like the stock would have kept going down because of the decline in fundamentals… these repurchases seem to hold up the stock price."

In the initial TARP audit, an audit that was limited and never again duplicated, it was revealed that corporations had absorbed trillions in overnight loans from the Fed. It was at this time that stock buybacks became the go-to method to artificially prop up equities values.

The problem is, just like they did at the start of the Great Depression, the central bank is once again raising interest rates into a declining economy. This means that all those no-cost loans used by corporations to buy back their own stocks are now going to have a price tag attached. An interest rate of 1 percent might not seem like much to someone who borrows $1000, but what about for someone who borrows $1 Trillion? Yes, borrowing at ANY interest rate becomes impossible when you need that much capital to prop up your stock. The loans have to be free, otherwise, there will be no loans.
Thus, we have to ask ourselves another question; is the Fed really ignorant enough to NOT know that raising rates will kill stock markets? They openly admit that they knew what they were doing when they inflated stock markets, so it seems to me unlikely that they do not know how to deflate stock markets. Therefore, if they deliberately engineered the market rally with low interest rates, it follows that they are deliberately engineering a crash in markets using higher interest rates.

What does the Fed gain from this sabotage? Total centralization. For example, before the Great Depression there used to be thousands of smaller private and localized banks in America. After the Great Depression most of those banks were either destroyed or absorbed by elite banking conglomerates. Banking in the U.S. immediately became a fully centralized monopoly by the majors. In a decade, they were able to remove all local competition and redundancy, making all communities beholden to their credit system.

The 2008 crash allowed the banking elites to introduce vast stimulus measures requiring unaccountable fiat money creation. Rather than saving America from crisis, they have expanded the crisis to the point that it will soon threaten the world reserve status of our currency. The Fed in particular has set the U.S. up not just for a financial depression, but for a full spectrum collapse which will include a considerable devaluation (yet again) of our currency's value.

The next phase of this collapse will include the end of the dollar as we know it, making way for a new global currency system that uses the IMF's SDR basket as a foundation. This plan is openly admitted in the elitist run magazine The Economist in an article entitled "Get Ready For A Global Currency By 2018."

It is important to understand what the Fed actually is — the Fed is a weapon. It is a weapon used by globalists to destroy the American system at a given point in time in order to clear the way for a new single world economy controlled by a single managerial entity (most likely the IMF or BIS). This is the Fed's purpose. The central bank is not here to save the U.S. from harm, it is here to make sure the U.S. falls in a particular manner — a controlled demolition of our fiscal structure.

Progressives are Now Officially the “Black Knight”

From here: By Sonny Palermo

Once again, in the weeks preceding an election, the wretched little network pundits practiced their Daily Affirmation:

I’m going to do a terrific show today.
I’m going to help people by telling them how to think and what to believe.
I’m smart enough, they’re stupid enough, and gosh darn it we’re going to win this time!

Then the results come in, they suffer another humiliating defeat, and, confused, they morph from Stuart Smalley into Monty Python’s Black Knight:

Loss? What loss? We actually won. No one stops the Progressive Party. WE’RE INVINCIBLE!
The spin from the left after Ossoff’s loss is nastier than Linda Blair’s head in The Exorcist, as two months of, “This election will be a referendum of the Trump administration!” quickly dissolves into, “Georgia? Meh.”

The pundits preached that the Georgia special election would be a rebuke on Trump. And as usual, their push polls had Ossoff winning, some by as many as five points. Then the votes came in, followed quickly by the excuses:

It shouldn’t have been this close, so . . . win!

Redistricting (because Democrats never gerrymander.) Rain.
(Bad weather prevented their bellwether? Rain is partisan?)

The shooting of congressman Scalise (When they go low, they go real low.)

But the most asinine excuse came from the loser himself, Jonathan Ossoff, who blamed big money, decrying PACS that put up millions of dollars for attack ads.

He spent $22,532,609.57 compared to his opponents $3,158,847.03, but he’s whining for campaign finance reform.

That is Hillary-level lack of self-awareness, right there.

Next up – “Russia, Russia, Russia” and global warming.

Denial and delusion, the drug of choice for Democrats.
And this week’s beating in Georgia? “Tis but a scratch.”
If I were Press Secretary Sean Spicer . . .

I would walk into the next briefing and announce I’ll be switching roles with the media for the day, and I will be asking them questions. On a wall-size projection screen behind me I put up a screen shot of this now famous photo of the CNN news desk after it became clear that Handel had defeated Ossoff:

I point at CNN’s Jim Acosta, effectively preempting the anchor’s daily bitch about not being called on. “Jim,” I say as I use a laser pointer to highlight the faces on the screen, “Can you tell us what happened here? Did somebody fart? Did Hillary’s dog die? Don’t look now, Jimbo, but your network’s bias slip is showing.”

Then I’d make him go stand in the corner.

The real purpose behind the Russian/Trump connection propaganda

Just after the U.S. presidential election in 2016, I published an article titled "Order Out Of Chaos: Defeat Of The Left Comes With A Cost", covering a rather difficult subject matter, namely the concept of "4th Generation Warfare" and how it is used by establishment elitists to defeat popular resistance to their agenda of centralization and globalization. 4th Gen tactics are confusing to many because most people think in terms of single movements and direct correlations; they think that a punch thrown is a punch intended to strike, rather than a feint or misdirection.

I'll put it another way — some people play chess and they only see the attack in front of them. Others play chess and they see the attack three moves ahead. 4th gen warfare is a "three steps ahead" style of fighting that focuses on a very specific goal: Tricking the enemy into destroying himself, or enslaving himself, so that you don't have to take any risks by moving against him directly. That is to say, 4th gen warfare is first and foremost about psychology. That which you see with your eyes is usually not what is actually happening.

For example, when predicting the election win of Donald Trump and passage of Brexit, I based my conclusions on a 4th gen strategy. According to the behavior and rhetoric of globalists and their organizations at the time, it seemed to me that they were allowing sovereignty and conservative movements to gain a foothold in the political arena. They were letting them think that they were winning.

This accomplishes a few things — it takes conservatives off their guard and convinces them to think in terms of defending government rather than overthrowing government. The corruption has not changed, but now we have a vested interest in keeping the system going and attempting to change it "from the inside." I hope it is clear to the majority of liberty activists today that this is a naive notion.
Conservatives are also now willing to argue in favor of the election system, because many of them now think that because Donald Trump "won," the system must be at least partially legitimate. News flash: Our election system has been fraudulent for decades. The only candidates that ever make it past the DNC and the RNC filters are the candidates the elites want the public to choose from.

The American public is also now viciously divided over Trump's ascendance to the White House. The political left has been driven to the point of utter zealotry, not that they weren't already stark raving mad to begin with. Conservatives are next to be targeted with psychological manipulation, as the leftist insanity pushes us towards the other end of the spectrum and a potentially dangerous mindset of rationalizing a totalitarian response. Where extreme social divisions exist, civil unrest and war are not far behind.

Finally, the existing economic and social framework of the U.S. in particular has a finite lifespan. 

Economic instability is rampant as I noted and evidenced in last week's article, and this has been a process ongoing since the initial 2008 credit and derivatives crisis. The old structure of America is being deliberately torn down to make way for a new structure; a single global structure in which we are not a nation but a feudal vassal with no ideas of sovereign self determination. That said, it cannot be torn down outright. The globalists do not plan to take any blame for the crisis that would inevitably follow. Enter Trump, the perfect scapegoat for the next stage of fiscal collapse, and perhaps a pied piper convincing enough to lure numerous conservative groups into taking the blame as well.

Trump, a seeming enemy of the globalist agenda, takes office, then surrounds himself with the same bankers and globalists he admonished during his campaign. He continues his anti-globalist rhetoric, but his actions tend to help them. Conservatives, desperate for a hero on a white horse to ride in and stop the rushing tide of cultural Marxism, were given one... just not in the manner they were hoping for.

In the meantime, the establishment has sought to keep social tensions high. How? The political left has been played like a marionette since the election with the narrative of Russian conspiracy. You see, hatred is psychologically exhausting. Mobs tend to dissipate and become impotent over time. It is hard to sustain the hatred of a large mass of people without consistent propaganda. Thus, it is important to give people a reason to hate; a reason that creates perpetual reinforcement. For leftists, the desire to hate Trump runs deep. They think he represents everything that stands in opposition to their ideology, and zealots cannot tolerate the existence of opposing ideals. But there has to be more. The left has to be convinced that Trump is a thief, a thief so heinous that he stole an election with the help of a foreign power.

Now, not only is Trump the anti-Christ to leftists, he is also a false president — a pretender to the throne. This narrative is more than enough to keep the left frothing at the mouth for months, if not years.

As many analysts have pointed out, there is absolutely no evidence whatsoever that Trump "stole" the election, let alone colluded with the Russian government to steal the election. Former FBI director James Comey's recent testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee produced nothing; no memos, no paper trail, nothing. The very existence of the "Comey memos" is likely a farce.
But here is where I break with many in the liberty movement — some analysts assume that Trump is being "targeted" and that the goal is to remove him from the White House. This makes little sense to me. If the elites wanted to stop Trump they would have done it during the RNC selection process just as they did to Ron Paul and just as the DNC did to Bernie Sanders.

Clearly, Trump is more valuable to them sitting in the Oval Office, as I outlined above. The Russian circus is going nowhere because it was never meant to go anywhere. It is distraction and drama, a soap opera for the ignorant masses. Trump will not be removed from office. If he does end up impeached, the impeachment will fail. As I have said since before the election, the establishment needs Trump as president.

So, if I am correct and the Russian conspiracy narrative is not intended to take Trump down, what is it intended for? As stated earlier, this is 4th gen warfare, and the intended target for propaganda is not always the obvious target.

Leftists are the initial target, as noted. They will continue to believe that Trump is a Russian collaborator because they want to believe it, regardless of how absurd the whole idea is. They will ignore the fact that there is no evidence to support the accusation. They will embrace the propaganda wholeheartedly and develop more violent methods to express their outrage.

The secondary target of the Russian conspiracy manipulation is conservative groups.

Here is the reality of our predicament; the U.S. system is going to move into the next phase of collapse under Trump's watch. The math is undeniable. Every economic indicator except stocks is in severe decline, the Federal Reserve is raising interest rates to deliberately ignite greater instability and time is running out. I believe that this phase will begin before the end of 2017. When the next downturn arrives on the doorstep and in the pocketbooks of the average person, the leftists and most of the world will blame Trump as an "incompetent buffoon" or a "vitriolic fascist."

Just as the elites need to make Trump and conservatives the best possible scapegoat for the left; they also need a perfect scapegoat for the political right. Conservatives will turn the tables on leftists and point out that Trump was not able to reverse economic damages "created by the Obama administration" because leftists used the fake Russian conspiracy as a means to undermine him at every turn. Leftists will be labeled economic and political saboteurs, and this accusation will work to a point, because it is partly true.

Finally, as America's decline accelerates, Eastern nations will without a doubt decouple completely from the U.S. dollar as the world reserve currency and begin using the IMF Special Drawing Rights basket structure as a replacement. Russia will most likely lead this charge along with China. Americans will blame Russia in part for the demise of the Dollar's buying power around the world. And, the rest of the world will blame the U.S. for the dollar's demise due to U.S. "imperialism" and overt sanctions against Russia because of unproven election meddling. They will say we had it coming.

Perhaps you have noticed a particular pattern here? Every piece of the narrative I have outlined has already been initiated, if perhaps only in early-to-mid stages of development. This is not conjecture, this is an open mainstream dialogue common in the mainstream. And in every case, the offered culprit behind the downfall of America is always someone other than the banking elites. Anyone other than the banking elites.

Leftists and socialists around the globe will blame Trump and conservative principles. Conservatives will blame the left and their obstructions of Trump. The West will blame the East. Globalists will blame "populists" and nationalists, and nationalists will be scrambling to protect their ground by any means necessary, including unconstitutional measures, which will only help the globalists in the long run.

A core catalyst for this geopolitical blame game is the Trump presidency and the use of the Russian conspiracy to ensure that the left remains crazy, inspiring the right towards extreme measures. This is not about removing Trump. Far from it.

In my recent article "Operation Temperer – U.K. will likely institute martial law measures within a year", I warned readers that the U.K. government has already set in motion martial law measures in response to a growing number of Islamic terrorist attacks. In the U.S., I think the same march towards totalitarianism will occur, but for reasons beyond foreign terrorism. Economic uncertainty coupled with a volatile left hellbent on supplanting the presidency by any means necessary may very well be exploited by Trump and the elites surrounding him to establish martial law measures in the U.S. And, I have little doubt that a portion of conservatives will cheer this action.

If this takes place and conservatives come out in majority support, then the globalist use of 4th Gen warfare will have succeeded. They will have won. For if conservatives abandon the Constitution, then no one will be left to defend the principles and heritage it represents. We will have destroyed ourselves, and the elites will have barely lifted a finger to make this happen. The game can be changed entirely, but only if we are smart enough to recognize the narrative for what it is, and only if we turn our sights on the globalists instead of hyperfocusing on the scapegoats they offer us.

"Random" Leftist Violence = Agenda21 Globalism!

"The Left" are Socialists (aka Communists). As "Totalitarians" they want TOTAL control over everyone else, and can only achieve that by keeping their intended victims always on the defensive, divided and conquered, by keeping them focused on their own petty fears and identity politics, by tempting and seducing them into regarding them selves as helpless and oppressed victims all the time.

"Socialism" is gangster extortion leading to slavery.
"Fascism" is gangster extortion leading to slavery.
"Islam" is gangster extortion leading to slavery.

And, finally ... "Corporations" are gangster extortion rackets, leading to (you guessed it!) slavery.

And behind all corporations, owning them, are the globalist oil-banksters, aka the counterfeiter's union!

So behind the shock-troops of "The Left," is all kinds of "capitalist" money, the Bilderbergers, CFR, etc., exactly as the Rockefellers themselves helped create and kept afloat the Soviet Union itself!

ALL of "our" governments are already completely OWNED by globalists corporations and oil-money banksters (aka the global counterfeiter's union)!

And corporations have been dumbing-down the population and turning them into stupid criminal clones of the salesmen for the last few hundred years, at least!

We are all currently still ruled by Salesmen, who always have, still do, and always will sell us all out by selling off our countries for only their own personal gains. Like their muslim and leftist brethren, they are all extortionist terrorist gangsters, too: they always advertise fear to sell or induce us to buy the greedy hope of relief from their own initial threats; like all extortionists, they use the ages-old carrot-and-stick behavioral conditioning/ marketing binary of fear and greed against us all.

Politicians are criminals who want more rights & less responsibility by offloading their responsibility onto victims by taking their rights! Politicians are PROFESSIONAL hypocrites.

"Group identity politics" is a divide-and-conquer strategy employed by globalist agents ("our leaders") to destroy our nation's social cohesion. Far from being "diversely equal" it's divisive and destructive, in aid of fomenting a globalist bankster tyranny.

The MUSLIMs are simply the shock-troops of the globalist oil-money BANKSTERS who want to destroy ALL sovereign nations so they can more easily run the world!

It should be clear by now that government's #1 duty is to protect and defend the country's citizens from disasters, both natural and man-made (aka crimes) BUT those we hire ('elect') are in fact only the most ambitious criminals who like all criminals want to have more rights and less responsibilities than others, and the only way to achieve this goal is to enslave and control all others by offloading their own responsibilities onto their victims, by depriving them of their rights.

So the government, courts, cops, lawyers, media and education system are NOT what we expect them to be, not what they seem: they are really ever only the "CONTROLLED OPPOSITION" to the globalist oil-banksters who OWN THEM ALL at our direct expense.

As with actors on TV, they are all merely puppets, not real people!

The left's message these days is: "Any president who doesn't want to give free stuff to foreigners and wants to make America great again should be murdered immediately!"

For what, for acting like the president of the country he was elected to run, and for standing up to foreign globalists?

Obviously, these little snowflakes' minds have been brainwashed by global oil-money banksters!

Because none of their rants and emotions make sense from an evolutionary self-interested nationalist point of view - they all embrace suicidal masochism!

All criminals are hypocrites, and all hypocrites are criminals - advising suicidal masochism as the highest moral virtue in their victims, while reserving the false "right" to attack others first for their own good for them selves.

All criminals MUST always defend their chosen stance of perpetual habitual greed by blaming their own victims!

All criminals posit they are the real victims, and their victims are the real criminals!

And the very best way for criminals to attack their victims is to pretend they were always victims, and that there are no crimes nor criminals because the criminals are really only ever victims, too!

Re: "The greatest trick the Devil ever played, was to pretend that he didn't exist" - BY PLAYING THE VICTIM!

Hypocrites will never make sense because to them, their feelings always trump the facts!

The chosen "belief" of all hypocritical criminals (both muslims and liberals included) is that their subjective feelings (of slanderous paranoia, that they are always the victims, and everyone else is always an oppressor out to get them) trump the real objective facts, (that their psychopathic choice of "belief" in their own idolatrous victimology self-image extortion syndrome, actually defines them selves as the predatory criminal aggressors, and those they slander with their paranoia, as their innocent victims) every time!

Criminals always put feelings before facts because they feel they are entitled to be considered right without having to think about anything first at all, ever. In fact, they want the false right to remain irresponsibly wrong. That's why they always endorse others TO GO ALONG (with criminal lies) TO GET ALONG (with all the other lying criminals).

Libertine "liberal" criminals always "feelz" that the best solution is to instantly become a part of the "inevitable" problem - because that way the additional pain caused by fearsomely fearful "thinking" about problems will be over, and "only" the real pain will remain!

"SINCE something COULD go wrong, SO it WILL go wrong, SO we HAVE TO Submit to and compromise with it now, in advance! That's just shrewd and pragmatic realpolitik! Whee!"

This is how they are PSYCHOPATHS (thought-killers) IDOLATERS and VICTIMOLOGISTS (substituting a preferred static self-image of perpetually enslaved victimhood for dynamic risky reality) double-standard-wielding HYPOCRITES and suicidal MASOCHISTS all at the same time! Might as well just call them LEFTOPATHS. Or, most accurately, CRIMINALS!

From here:

If there’s one thing righties believe, it’s that they could beat lefties in a fight.

You see this attitude reflected over and over again, to the point that it’s probably something engrained in the right-wing psyche.  Pajama Boy vs. tactical deathbeast?  Pffft. No contest. Look, righties have the guns, righties have police and they have the military. If one day the balloon ever goes up, righties will just organize behind a leadership of their veterans, coordinate with the active service, give all the lefties free helicopter rides, and live happily ever after. Right?

That’s pretty much what the Confederacy thought about the Yankees, and it didn’t exactly work out well for them.

From the perspective of a mainstream righty who’s a right-to-keep-and-bear-arms guy, this dismissive attitude is remarkably familiar. It’s the same attitude of somebody who buys a gun “just in case” but never goes to the range, which is a great way to discover when somebody kicks your door in at three a.m. that you don’t know the difference between the magazine release and the safety.  Organization requires time, communication, networking, and above all practice, and vanishingly few right-wingers are interested in doing the necessary work.

Some of this is due to disillusionment.  The determination of ostensibly right-wing politicians to resist giving their voters what they want has, unsurprisingly, motivated a growing number of righties, most notably neoreactionaries, to consider going  post-politics. In this view, the Right cannot achieve its goals through participation in the political system; what the Right really needs is a Moldbug reset, or a restoration: a one-fell-swoop by which the government is fired and rebuilt.  The idea is to build right-wing structures in anticipation of reality’s inevitable selecting-away of  inefficient (left-wing) forms when they can no longer propagate themselves. Entropy will set in and, perhaps, a defining moment will emerge.

Of course, that’s not necessarily going to be the case.  Political violence isn’t fun for the whole family: it’s long, and it’s ugly, and everybody suffers.  And nobody ever thinks this when they have a Great Cause, but maybe, just maybe, your Great Cause won’t win. And then what?  “It couldn’t be worse” is the sort of thing Turkish coup plotters say right before their attempt fails and leaves their bete noire in undisputed charge of writing the purge lists. When it comes to political violence, everybody imagines themselves piloting the helicopters; nobody imagines themselves clinging desperately to the skids.

There’s a famous cartoon by Sidney Harris that shows a couple of researchers at a blackboard, on which is a series of complicated mathematical equations. In the middle of the blackboard are the words “then a miracle occurs.”  The cartoon’s caption, dialogue from one of the researchers to the other: “I think you should be more explicit here in step two.”

“And then a miracle occurs” is a long-standing fringe-right temptation.  You see it in all sorts of places: in Ayn Rand’s hugely influential Atlas Shrugged, once a lone scientist moves to Galt’s Gulch and doesn’t have to worry about the leeches, he literally cures cancer. In the much less influential wish-fulfillment novels by literal Nazi Harold Covington, his Mary Sue goes from poverty-stricken and railing into the ether to the inspiring force behind a mass white nationalist movement because, for no reason, white people suddenly start listening to his screeds and mailing him five-figure checks. Bluntly put: “and then a miracle occurs” is the equivalent of “I don’t have to change or put forth any effort; someday I will be great and people will like me for who I am.”  As Righties know, this is something lazy and inadequate people say.

The organizational capacity required to build a new world is the same organizational capacity have Lefties built to pressure government. So who’s in a better position to shape the big moment when it comes?  Hell, if tomorrow civilization goes completely Mad Max: who’s got existing local networks of people who they’re used to turning out and doing stuff with on a regular basis?  Answer to both questions: not the Right.

Passivists say activism accomplishes nothing. What it actually accomplishes is practice.  Practice for networking, practice for turnout, practice for speed, practice working as a team. Anybody who’s ever tried to get five people together for dinner knows it’s a pain, but look at the airport protests after the travel ban, and see how many people the hard Left can turn out on next to no notice.  Say the balloon were to suddenly go up: forget having a detailed and specific plan; in that first five minutes, do you — not some veterans’ network you’re hoping will salvage things, not some imaginary Great Man; *specifically you* — even know who you’re going to call?

The Lefties do. And that’s why righties who say the Right has nothing to learn from the Left are wrong. That’s because righties don’t read lefty books. I read lefty books and organizational manuals, and I can tell you: they’re smart.

Accordingly, righties face two major challenges: building things, and understanding the strengths, weaknesses, and tactics of their Lefty opposition.  Righties won’t do the same things as the Left, or do them in the same ways, but that doesn’t mean the Lefties don’t have lessons we can learn.

The first thing righties have to understand about Lefties is that lefties have a lot more practice building their own institutions, and assuming control of existing institutions, than their counterparts on the right do, and they share their practical experience with each other. Righties who like to build churches will build a church and worship in it. Lefties who like to build churches will build a church, write a book telling people how to build churches, go out and convince people church-building is the thing to do, run workshops on how to finance, build, and register churches, and then they’ll offer to arrange church guest speakers who’ll come preach the Lefty line.

Righties need to do a better job of teaching each other.  And not just teaching the right-winger closest to them. The most organized groups on the Right are the pro-life and RKBA activists; everybody else on the Right should be learning from them.

The second thing to understand about Lefties is how they actually function.  There’s a lot of independence involved. Righties like hierarchy, so often think of the Lefties as taking marching orders from George Soros or whoever in a very hierarchical fashion. Not so much. A lot of left-wing organization is very decentralized, and they negotiate with other lefty groups as to exactly how they’ll do things and time things to not hurt each others’ work, so the labor movement’s march is not derailed by black-bloc window-smashing (see, for example, DIRECT ACTION, L.A. Kauffman’s excellent history of the Left from the 60s on).

The Lefties call that approach “embracing a diversity of tactics,” which, taken to its logical extent, is a weasel-worded way of saying that the lefty mainstream is comfortable with radical leftist violence. People don’t like to talk about this much. But while it’s impossible to imagine, say, an abortion clinic bomber getting a cushy job at an elite university, that’s exactly what happened to a number of alumni of the 1970s leftist terror group known as the Weather Underground. As fugitives, they were financially and operationally supported by members of the National Lawyers’ Guild; afterward, they were so normalized that the 9/11 issue of The New York Times infamously ran a profile lauding Weatherman alumnus Bill Ayres.  By contrast, right-wing terrorist Eric Rudolph’s fugitive days were spent hiding in the wilderness because no one would help him. He was caught literally dumpster-diving for food. Potential right-wing extremists face opportunity costs that their left-wing counterparts do not.

Righties frequently make allegations of paid protestors when Lefties get a bunch of people together. Again, that’s not how it works. Think of Lefty protests as being like a Grateful Dead concert.  People absolutely got paid at a Grateful Dead concert: the band got paid, and the roadies got paid. But the Deadheads who followed the band around didn’t get paid.  They weren’t roadies, they weren’t the band; they were there because they loved the music.

Lefties are excellent at protests, not because they pay seat-fillers, but because they’ve professionalized organizing them, as you’ll discover if you read any of their books. The protestors aren’t paid.  The organizers are paid.  The people who train the organizers and protestors are paid. Basically, the way the Lefty protest movement works is sort of like if the Koch brothers subsidized prepping and firearms classes.

Left-wingers have a combination of centralized and decentralized infrastructure, because they have different kinds of groups.  Some groups use centralized organization: they’ll go out tabling, recruit people, trying to grow big.  Other groups, particularly anarchists, favor a decentralized approach, where actions are performed by the collaborative actions of multiple small cells called affinity groups.

The affinity group structure began in Spain: anarchists there organized themselves into small groups of very close friends who knew each other very well, because such small groups were difficult to infiltrate.  Even if they were infiltrated, exposing one group wouldn’t blow the whole organization.

The American Left picked up on affinity groups in the late 1960s. They started as a means for organizing protests and turned into a means of organizing movements.  To coordinate, they send members back and forth to spokescouncils.  The idea is to create a very collaborative discussion.  This is partly due to the influence on the modern hard Left by Quaker organizers — if you remember those lengthy Occupy meetings that just went on and on and on, it’s because that’s how decision-making is done in Quaker meetings, and Quaker organizers taught the technique to Lefties in the ’70s anti-nuclear movement. And it spread, because lefties in different movements talk to each other and work together all the time.

By contrast, righty organizations have historically been slow to organize. When they do, right-wing activists tend to stay in their own lanes and not work together, share notes, or reach out to one another’s followers.  Think about the mishmash of signs you typically see at a Lefty protest, and then try to remember the last time you saw, say, an RKBA sign at a pro-life rally.  More unfortunately, when righties do become active, they tend to do something like start a blog. Or make a YouTube channel. Or write a magazine article. In short, they become street-corner evangelists.  They tend not to do things in meatspace.

Lefties do the work in the real world. Guess who wins?

The recent Battles of Berkeley have shown that right-wing defense groups can acquit themselves admirably in street-fights, but hard experience has taught Lefties that an all-one-tactic mentality is a good way to give your opponents time to figure out how to counter you. If righties are going to build things, they need to look at how the lefties are doing it, because they’ve been working on it for forty years. To paraphrase Trotsky, you may not be interested in politics, but politics are interested in you — and you can learn a lot from the people who’ve been working them to their advantage.


Let me just drive this home to you ,too: The COPS and government ARE part of the "Left Wing!"

Vampirism = Eternal Youth: Toldja So!

From here:

Bloody “Fountain of Youth” Treatment Evokes Biblical Villain, Medieval Nightmares

“Only be steadfast in not eating the blood; for the blood is the life; and thou shalt not eat the life with the flesh”. Deuteronomy 12:23 (The Israel Bible™)
A new treatment involving transfusing the blood of young donors into older recipients is being lauded not only as a cure for disease but also as a possible treatment for reversing the effects of aging. But the unusual treatment, which evokes Biblical villains and dredges up medieval nightmares, has rabbis divided: is this a blessing or is it a curse?
Ambrosia, a biomedical startup in California, is running trials on a treatment that could help people suffering from heart disease, Alzheimer’s, and certain forms of cancer. The treatment is based on a theory called parabiosis, which involves transfusing young blood from donors aged 16-25 into recipients 35 and older. The current version of the treatment involves transfusions of plasma, the liquid part of blood that doesn’t contain any cells, from young people.
Since plasma cannot be patented, drug companies are not interested in this treatment and are not willing to fund the research. As a result, the human trials are expensive, with participants paying $8,000 per treatment.
Ambrosia claims they are running the trial at cost, with two liters of plasma costing $1,000 and the following evaluation of biomarkers in the blood of the recipient costing another $3,000. Nonetheless, the price tag places rejuvenation in the realm of the wealthy, hinting strongly at old archetypes.
One graphic case of the elite using the blood of the oppressed is in the Talmud, which describes Pharaoh bathing in the waters of the Nile, red with the blood of murdered Jewish infants, in order to cure his leprosy.
A medieval woodcut depicting blood libel, N├╝rnberg 1493. (Hartmann Schedels Weltchronik/Wikimedia Commons)
The subject of blood is central in Judaism, and the laws of kashrut (dietary laws) forbid the consumption of blood, requiring that it be covered after slaughtering of the animal.
Only be steadfast in not eating the blood; for the blood is the life; and thou shalt not eat the life with the flesh. Deuteronomy 12:23
The process Ambrosia is attempting, taking blood from the young, raises uncomfortable associations in the Jewish psyche. During the Middle Ages, Jews were often accused of spurious blood libels by their gentile neighbors, who charged them with murdering Christian children to use their blood for baking matzah (unleavened bread) for the Passover holiday. The first recorded blood libel was in England in the 12th century and the accusation was officially adopted by Pope Innocent IV in the 13th century, leading to centuries of baseless animosity between Jews and Christians.
The possibility of youth-for-sale raises moral concerns and law does not permit Ambrosia to directly hire the young donors. Ambrosia purchases its supply of young blood from donor facilities. With eternal youth on the table, a market could quickly appear, as it has for organs for transplant. Today, kidneys sell for as much as $150,000 on the black market. Currently, there is little demand for plasma and donors earn about $200 per month. If plasma is discovered to be the fountain of youth and a black market among the wealthy develops, this number may soar.
Rabbi Yosef Berger, rabbi of King David’s Tomb on Mount Zion, was cautious about the spiritual implications of the procedure.
“If the intention is to prolong or save lives, it is indeed a blessed endeavor,” he told Breaking Israel News. “But if it is an attempt to usurp the place of God, to remove death from the world, that is like the generation that built the Tower of Babel in order to take the place of God in heaven.
“Life and death are from God, and resurrection of the dead is an essential part of the Messiah. People who want to eradicate death actually want to erase the resurrection of the dead.”
Rabbi Moshe Avraham Halperin from the Science and Technology Torah Law Institute, which investigates modern technology within a religious Jewish framework, was unfazed by the vampiric appearance of the treatment.
“This is not at all similar to Pharaoh, who murdered the Jewish children out of his hatred of the Jews and our God,” he told Breaking Israel News. “There is no problem with this treatment in Jewish law, since it is a cure and can prolong life. Prolonging life and rejuvenation is a blessed thing. The only thing forbidden in biology is to create a new life form.”
“Selling organs may become problematic, but here we are talking about plasma, which is renewable,” said Rabbi Halperin. “There should be systems created to make this available to the poor as well.”

Turdeau's $35M crime-covering muz-coddling waste

From here:

As a family gathers around the dinner table, one seat is conspicuously empty.

“He’ll be back soon,” the mother says in the video, referring to her son, a presumed foreign fighter. “You know how much he loves my cooking.”

Her husband reaches his hand over to hers. “Darling,” he intones, “it’s been over two years now.”

As the scene fades to black, a message flashes on the screen: “They’ll be missed more than they’ll ever know.”

WRONG! In reality back in the Middle East, their families would be celebrating their little shahid's martyrdoms by partying in the streets, for Little Jihadi is now in Jannah with his 720 virgin goats!

Grassroots organizations in Europe, such as Families Against Terrorism and Extremism, have produced a number of high-impact videos in recent years aimed at curbing violent extremism among youth and undercutting terrorist propaganda.

But whether these and other counter-radicalization measures being tried in the West are having any impact on would-be terrorists is anyone’s guess; the evidence is still largely lacking, experts say.

That uncertainty now looms over the Canadian government as it prepares to unveil a new office aimed at thwarting radicalized violence, whether perpetuated by radical Islamists or far-right extremists. 

There would be no "far right extremists" forming defensive militias if Turdeau did his job.

After a lengthy delay, the Liberals are expected to launch the new office — currently called the Office of the Community Engagement and Counter-Radicalization Coordinator — in the near future, pledging $35 million over five years to support intervention efforts, counter-narrative campaigns and research.

Pay me a mere million and I'll do the "research" and even read the Qur'an to these mental infants!

The roll out — at a time when Britain is recovering from a string of terror incidents — is fraught with challenges, observers say.

How will the government ensure programming doesn’t make entire demographic groups (like global crime-gang members)  feel like they’re being stigmatized?

Is the government better off supporting programs aimed at a broad audience, including at-risk youth? 

Or programs that narrowly target those on the cusp of violence?

When, if ever, is it appropriate to intervene if someone espouses radical beliefs but not radical behaviour?

Well, let's see about that last bit now, my leftopathic "friends:" If, by "radical beliefs" you mean "It is my holy right and duty to my god to extort, enslave, and murder all the non-members of my holy mobster crime-gang!" then simply expressing those 'beliefs" actualizes their threat. And, while I know you may not want to believe this, it's nevertheless true that right now, threatening other people is a crime! Yeah, I know, who'd have expected that, eh? That threats writ large are called "extortion" and "terrorism" and that perpetually extortive terroristic threats are also known as "slavery!"?

The whole effort will be “costly, resource-intensive if done correctly, time-consuming, with political risks,” said Jez Littlewood, a professor of international affairs at Carleton University. 

“Despite all these, my view is that the effort is worthwhile and should be tried.”

Really? And exactly how are you going to explain to muslims that their god's "perfect" words, as expressed in their Qur'ans, which order them to extort, enslave, and murder us, are "wrong!"?

Last August, Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale told reporters that the new office — a key promise in the 2015 election campaign — would be open by the fall. But the government has had trouble finding someone to lead the office. Goodale’s spokesman Scott Bardsley said the appointment of a special adviser should be complete “in the coming months.”

“We want Canada to be a world leader in countering radicalization,” Bardsley said.

That will require help from partners in the community to carry out programs and research. “It has to be local, it has to be grassroots,” said Lorne Dawson, a sociology professor at the University of Waterloo and expert on radicalization.

But which "community" do you imagine you might need to be partners with to stop "radicalism?"

Public Safety Canada says it intends to “empower community actors — particularly youth and women” to develop programs and messaging that “challenge violent radical narratives and promote critical thinking.”

Promoting critical thinking isn't something one would expect to receive from a group which pretends it wants to stop muslim terrorism by misdirecting people into "combating radical extremist-ism!" And I wasn't aware that youths and "particularly women" are terrorists!

Federal officials have been closely monitoring developments in Britain, where critics have accused the government’s counter-radicalization initiatives of trampling on rights and stigmatizing Muslims.

Gosh! How strange! Why would anyone think noticing islam's terror calls would 'stigmatize' them?!

One program, called Prevent, provides support to community groups and schools to develop projects that challenge extremist messages.

Interesting. Please tell me how you intend to "challenge" the Qur'an's many calls for terrorism? By telling illiterate muslims that their Imams are lying to them, and the Qur'an doesn't really say that?

A companion program, called Channel, identifies vulnerable youth and attempts to steer them to various community partners for mentoring or counselling.

But social justice groups have complained the programs define extremism too broadly — someone can be targeted for expressing opposition to “fundamental British values,” for instance, and  there has been a tendency to “over-refer” individuals.

Well now, my poor little hypocrites: if by "British Values" one means the Golden Rule, then (see above) simply expressing one's opposition to such a social contract is already an illegal threat.
Success in one year may be undone two or three years later
There is also a risk of violating freedom of expression, critics say.

According to one report, staff at a nursery school had referred a four-year-old boy to the program after he had drawn a picture of a man holding a knife and allegedly talked about “cooker bombs.” His mother insisted that it was misunderstanding and that the boy was merely describing a picture of his father cutting a “cucumber.”

Was his mother a muslima?

Amira Elghawaby, a spokeswoman for the National Council of Canadian Muslims, said her organization has been getting regular updates on the counter-radicalization office and is so far encouraged that Ottawa seems to be taking an inclusive approach to the problem. “We’re all in this together.”

Whew! Good thing Turdeau is telling the enemy first how he intends to use our money against them!

Under the Conservative government, public safety officials held a series of meet-and-greet events, many in Muslim communities, that allowed members of the public to get to know representatives from Canada’s national security agencies. The events later progressed in 2014 and 2015 into weightier discussions. Stories about radicalized individuals were shared, and attendees were encouraged to weigh in on what could’ve been done to intervene.

Again: If you think islam and "far-right" extremists are on par, why bother to single them out?

Mubin Shaikh, a former CSIS and RCMP undercover operative (who was really only a mere paid stool pigeon and rat; he wasn't a trained undercover cop on their payroll or anything) who helped to take down the Toronto 18 terrorist group, said the events were warmly received. “The kids loved it,” he said. “It did start a dialogue.”

But there were complaints, too, namely that the discussions failed to address broader societal issues contributing to radicalization, such as youth unemployment and marginalization, Dawson said.

Really? I dare you to prove that poverty causes crime, much less 1,400 years of global terrorism.

A growing number of experts are advocating for a more holistic approach to countering violent extremism — one that attempts to address community grievances and feelings of social exclusion, he said.

Funny how the Qur'an doesn't usually treat muslims as victims (although it sometimes does).

Still, some say the terrorist propaganda and violent narratives on the Internet and social media sites — often infused with glorious references to past and valiant warriors — cannot be ignored and efforts must be made to squarely refute  their often misleading claims.

Often? I'd have said "rarely" to "never" misleading, because they really only need to quote the Qur'an!

“It is a battle for hearts and minds,” Shaikh said.

Some of this is already happening in Canada. In 2015, Public Safety Canada threw its support behind a video project, Extreme Dialogue, that highlighted the stories of individuals who had walked away from extreme Islamist groups or far-right groups, as well as family members impacted by extremism.

Please show me this video where the alleged "far-right" group members walked away in disgust.

Last year, Montreal’s Centre for the Prevention of Radicalization Leading to Violence created a comic book that used humour to try to address some of the underlying causes of radicalization.

Yes, jihad- global holy war - is an infinitely funny topic - to leftopaths.

But do these counter-narrative campaigns ring hollow for their intended audiences? And how do you gauge success? By clicks and web visits?

Phil Gurski, a former CSIS strategic analyst, said trying to deconstruct and counter every piece of propaganda ends up being a never-ending game of “whack-a-mole.” He suggested putting more emphasis on alternative narratives, for example, emphasizing Muslim empowerment and success stories.

Since islam is a crime-gang, and its "muslim" gang members are taught from birth how superior they are to all other creeds, it's hard to see how adding to their murderous egos is going to help anyone.

But that still leaves the question of how to deal with individuals who are more deeply entrenched in their radicalization, such as foreign fighters who have returned to Canada. About 180 Canadians are known to have participated in terrorist activities overseas — mostly in Turkey, Iraq and Syria — and about 60 have returned.

Hm, let's see now - how to deal with people who conspired to commit the crimes of at least attempted murder, by traveling to foreign lands to murder people (fellow muslims, even) who had never personally affronted them? I'd say lock them up for conspiracy to commit murder and attempted murder! DUH!

If police fear someone may commit a terrorism offence, but don’t have enough evidence to charge them, they have sometimes gone to court to apply for peace bonds, which temporarily restrict an individual’s movements. But as the case of Aaron Driver showed, these bonds cannot always be relied upon to prevent violence.

Driver had been the subject of a peace bond that restricted access to his computer and cellphone and barred him from possessing firearms or explosives. Yet, last August, the Islamic State sympathizer was able to shoot a martyrdom video and get into a taxi with a homemade bomb before being shot and killed by police in Strathroy, Ont.

For those not quite as far down the path of radicalization, police in Toronto last year announced they had been experimenting with an early intervention model, not dissimilar to the one in Britain. Individuals deemed at-risk for violence are steered to “hubs” of community representatives who assess whether they might benefit from spiritual guidance, family counselling or mental-health support. Calgary police have a similar program in place.

Yes, let's refer troubled muslim youth to their local Imams to tell them the Qur'an is wrong.

Yet this approach creates other conundrums: Should such voluntary programs be mandatory? And should the goal be “de-radicalization” — the suppression of extreme ideology?

They should be mandatory for muslims. Obviously. And they should have to pay us for them.

Or is it more realistic to settle for “disengagement” — allowing a person to continue to harbour radical ideas so long as they do not resort to or support violence?

See above for what constitutes expressing "radical ideas" (the right to murder innocent people).

“The dangers to democracy are obvious here and not at all easy to reconcile,” Littlewood said. And, “success in one year may be undone two or three years later,” he added.

Whoever takes the helm of Canada’s new counter-radicalization office is in for a “mind-boggling” ride to try to create a coherent national framework for best practices, Gurski said.

“I don’t know if we’ll ever know what works,” he said. “But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t do it.”

Phil: saying "I don't know if it'll work but we should waste money anyway!" = criminal negligence.

Canada’s New Law Lets Government Take Children Away If Parents Don’t Accept Their Gender Identity

From here:

The largest Canadian province has passed a law that gives rights to the government to take away children from families that don’t accept their kid’s chosen “gender identity” or “gender expression”.
The Supporting Children, Youth and Families Act of 2017, also know as Bill 89, was passed in Ontario by a vote of 63 to 23, The Christian Times reported.
The law, which replaces old laws governing child protection, foster care and adoption services, instructs all child services and judges, to take into consideration a child’s “race, ancestry, place of origin, color, ethnic origin, citizenship, family diversity, disability, creed, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression.”
Minister of Child and Family Services Michael Coteau, who introduced the bill, said “I would consider that a form of abuse, when a child identifies one way and a caregiver is saying no, you need to do this differently.”
“If it’s abuse, and if it’s within the definition, a child can be removed from that environment and placed into protection where the abuse stops.”
The old law used to allow parents to “direct the child’s education and religious upbringing.” The new bill, however, amends such rights of the parents.
It now emphasizes a child’s “identity and allows parents only to “direct the child or young person’s education and upbringing, in accordance with the child’s or young person’s creed, community identity and cultural identity.”
Ontario children and youth advocate Irwin Elman celebrated the bill and said it signals a “paradigm shift” and creates a “child-centered system of service” with “the commitment to anti-racism and children’s rights.”
Jack Fonseca, a political strategist for Campaign Life Coalition, meanwhile, criticized the new law.
“With the passage of Bill 89, we’ve entered an era of totalitarian power by the state, such as never witnessed before in Canada’s history. Make no mistake, Bill 89 is a grave threat to Christians and all people of faith who have children, or who hope to grow their family through adoption.”
The child services in Ontario, Canada got into hot water back in April after it removed two foster children from a Christian couple’s home because they said no to lying to the girls that the Easter bunny is real, The Christian Post reported.
Derek Baars, one of the foster parents, said “We have a no-lying policy” after being told by a child support worker that they must tell the girls, aged 3 and 4, that the Easter bunny is real because it’s an important part of Canadian culture.
“We explained to the agency that we are not prepared to tell the children a lie. If the children asked, we would not lie to them, but we wouldn’t bring it up ourselves,” he added.

Children are by definition legally "non-compus mentis" but then again so are all liberals, who always push feelings over facts. Any such "laws" are nothing more than child-abuse and any courts or cops who enforce them are criminals.
All libertine "liberals" are delinquent to the Golden Rule of Law "Do Not Attack First" responsibility; all liberal positivist "laws" = crimes.

EVERY ONE of these categories is false as in being above a child's comprehension level: “race, ancestry, place of origin, color, ethnic origin, citizenship, family diversity, disability, creed, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression.”

A child MAY be capable of noticing it's own colour &/or ('race') but not its (tribal or 'ethnic') ancestry, place of origin, citizenship, "family diversity" (whatever that means; colour again maybe?) disability, creed, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression.
In fact, by condoning and indulging whatever "sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression" a (by definition) non-compus-mentis child's opinion may only temporarily be, over the basic facts, one is in fact abusing that child by NOT dis-abusing them of their fantasy feelings in favour of the objective facts.

Happy Ramadan BOOMathon!

From elsewhere...

The holy month returns with its sacred traditions.

June 3, 2017 
Bruce Bawer 

Yet again it has returned, the sublime and hallowed month of Ramadan – a beautiful and particularly sacred period that was an original part of the magnificent revelation handed down by Allah to the Prophet himself (peace be upon him) in the Holy Quran. Indeed, it has been widely postulated by many of our holiest of men that the precious text of that sacred volume was revealed to the Prophet himself (even more peace be upon him) during the very first Ramadan. 

Needless to say, this is an exceedingly special and sanctified period of the year, a period of grace and majesty as well as of prayer and charity – a time during which the eternally beloved people of Allah are encouraged to demonstrate the depth and strength of their faith by engaging in sawm, or fasting, from dawn until sunset, as well as by strictly avoiding the intake of food and beverages, the use of tobacco, and any kind of carnal activity, although the standard acts of incestuous intercourse with minors and, naturally, the brutal sexual violation of the wives and offspring of infidels can be safely pursued per usual. Furthermore, it is to be hoped that the faithful will manifest the great extent of their self-restraint during this period by scheduling such activities as female genital mutilation, wife-beating, and the theologically obligatory honor killing of wives, sisters, and daughters for the hours following sundown – that is to say, after the iftar, the solemn supper taken in the wake of the sinking of the sun below the horizon, and before the suhur, the consecrated common meal that is directed to take place just prior to the rising of the sun. 

It is particularly vital that the people of God make a special effort during the holy month of Ramadan not to engage in any act of unkindness, injustice, or insensitivity directed at their fellow believers – although, of course, the tossing of homosexuals from the roofs of buildings, the remorseless stoning to death of rape victims, and the violent execution of apostates may proceed as usual, preferably during the hours of darkness. It it crucial, moreover, to underscore that Ramadan is a time during which the followers of the Prophet are enjoined to take part in even a more extensive and profound degree of spiritual reflection than is their usual practice during the remainder of the year: they are, for instance, called upon to recite the special Ramadan prayers, known as the Tarawih, during the nights of this dearest of months, and even, if they are capable of such an accomplishment, to read prayerfully through the entire Holy Quran from start to finish. All of this contemplative and devout activity, to be sure, should not be permitted to distract the children of Allah from such equally urgent and virtuous tasks as mowing down infidels with cars, trucks, and other vehicles, shooting deadly rockets into the heart of urban areas where civilian non-believers are wont to gather, and committing sundry acts of mass annihilation and bloodshed involving such handy implements as machetes and Kalashnikovs. 

Most important of all, the consummate lessons of self-control that the people of the Holy Quran are expected to take to heart during Ramadan should not be misconstrued in such a way as to prevent them from setting off bombs at major sporting events, high-profile musical performances, and other large public events at which there is a good chance of reducing large numbers of infidels, especially the small and helpless children of the infidels, to random splatters of blood and to charred, unidentifiable bits and pieces of flesh and bone. On the contrary, the followers of Allah and disciples of the Prophet (peace, yet again, be upon him) should never lose sight of the fact that it is during Ramadan, above all times, that acts of righteous slaughter and virtuous extirpartion – those blessed sanguinary proofs of Islamic piety and allegiance – bring even more joy to Allah in His Heaven than they do during the remainder of the year.

Bruce Bawer is the author of "While Europe Slept," "Surrender," and "The Victims' Revolution." His novel "The Alhambra" has just been published.
