Below this seething maelstrom of degeneracy lie dangerous shoals of cultural conservatism,
of people who believe in two sexes and birth within wedlock and orderly society obedient to law.
They are quietly very, very angry at seeing everything they stand for eaten away by the multi-culti, touchy-feely, everything-goes miasma emanating from Washington. They speak of personal responsibility, learning the multiplication tables, English as the national language, and no toleration of crime– and they know who commits it. Whether you think them simple-minded and fascist or wholesome and self-reliant defines which side of the gaping cultural divide you inhabit.
Weimar America is not stable.
A pathologically aggressive United States bombs countries almost at random while little boys are dragged from school in handcuffs for pointing a finger and saying “Bang.” Girls suffer from bulimia and anorexia, lunacies nonexistent in psychically healthy societies. A crack-brained feminism makes cockamamie circuses of the universities. Bastardy runs at a perilous thirty percent among white women, verging on cultural disintegration, and seventy percent among blacks. The epicene young grow in sheltered, meaningless hothouse-suburbs, never having worked, baited a hook, been in a schoolyard fight, or existed outside of a feckless bored helplessness. From the cellars come prancing homosexuals, men in dresses and panties, the surgically altered inverts and sadomasochistic hobbyists. The high schools are become drug markets, differing only slightly from the middle schools. Life is a cabaret, old chum, here in Caligula’s bedroom.

For the Lord God is a sun and shield: the Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.
The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.
For the Lord is our judge, the Lord is our lawgiver, the Lord is our king; it is he who will save us.
Isaiah 31 English Standard Version (ESV)
Woe to Those Who Go Down to Egypt
31 Woe to those who go down to Egypt for help and rely on horses, who trust in chariots because they are many and in horsemen because they are very strong, but do not look to the Holy One of Israel or consult the Lord!
2 And yet he is wise and brings disaster; does not call back his words, but will arise against the house of the evildoers and against the helpers of those who work iniquity.
3 The Egyptians are man, and not God, and their horses are flesh, and not spirit. When the Lord stretches out his hand, the helper will stumble, and he who is helped will fall, and they will all perish together.
4 For thus the Lord said to me, “As a lion or a young lion growls over his prey, and when a band of shepherds is called out against him he is not terrified by their shouting or daunted at their noise, so the Lord of hosts will come down to fight on Mount Zion and on its hill.
5 Like birds hovering, so the Lord of hosts will protect Jerusalem; he will protect and deliver it; He will spare and rescue it.”

Many of the locals either do not understand the transmission method (from forest animals like bats), or chose to disbelieve it,
and are not changing their behaviours regarding funereal procedures, which involve bathing and kissing the corpse, all of which are part of altruistic respect for the dead person. The locals are also prey to false correlation: they see people who are mildly ill going into hospital, and then taken out dead soon afterward by space-suited Western health workers. In terms of Kahneman’s Type 1 fast and sloppy thinking, this is understandable. Ebola hospitals are dangerous places. Westerners in space suits are unusual and disturbing, and in fact even the notion of a hospital may be the wrong strategy in these outbreaks. However, if a populace suspect that health workers spraying disinfectant may be malevolently spreading bottled Ebola, then there is a massive health education challenge to be faced.

still have to import managerial, technical from the West and ‘slave’ labor from places like the Philippines?
Consider: foreign workers make up four fifths of the population of Qatar. One third the population of Saudi Arabia are ‘non nationals’. And they can’t even practice their Christian religion in the KSA, despite the UN convention of universal rights. Who’s the apartheid state? Yet if these despised ‘slaves’ leave these host countries will be toast. Who’s going to change the bedpans, run the x-ray machines, operate the scanner, do the operation, stick in the IV? Who’s going to pump out the oil? You can make the world’s best playground-based missile, but you can’t eat it. Time and distances still matter in military operations; the persistence of hatred still drives policy; the everlasting character of slavery breeds dependency among the masters.

For some people it is a living. What else does Al Sharpton do, exactly, except lie in wait for someone who utters a thoughtless or indiscreet remark that can be ambushed as “racist”?
American universities employ squads of such thought police. These sensitivity thugs, on and off campus, seldom put away their cudgels until the offender recants and, of course, apologizes—publicly, tearfully if possible, and sometimes with the kind of shake-down side payment that acknowledges “I can never afford to do this again” and that Don Corleone could only envy. Do I have to add that the tears needn’t be sincere? Sincerity has very little to do with this racket. The apology game is about power, about bending or breaking the offender’s will, about exalting the will of the “offended.”

Sheep and Goats: Impure Thoughts on the Gaza War
Waging a war with moral trilobites is always nasty business, and no nation state knows this truth more fully than Israel in its current conflagration with Hamas. The Gaza regime is a pitiless beast whose primitive instincts compel it to commit acts that are counter to its own long-term interests. Indeed, while it is one thing to steel ones heart to the murder of a blood-sworn enemy, Hamas is bound and determined to do battle using the scarlet-stained skeletons of their own children as body armor. Tragically, it seems that every soul under the brutal tutelage of Hamas forfeits its innocence and becomes criminally culpable in earning a terrorist state’s impending judgment — to which Gaza is racing blindly to meet headlong.
It is the Palestinian’s proverbial never-ending story: Hamas instigates an asymmetrical conflict as the willing proxy of other nations: in this latest instance it is theocratic Iran. In doing so, it rekindles the Myth of Palestinian Victimhood in the theatre of the Idiot West and again refills its financial coffers from those whose ethical compass has been long shattered. In its hypocrisy, it clumsily kills its own “innocents” by launching rockets as it wails and indignantly shakes its index finger westward to an audience of friendly cameras who are as honest as Bedouin traders. Hamas has proven itself to be of pure Palestinian pedigree: incapable of honor or shame and equal to the hideous task of sacrificing the lives of hundreds of its nimble children to construct its terror tunnels or summarily executing individuals who reject the staged martyrdom that comes from standing in close proximity to a rocket launcher. No action is contemplated without the ruthless calculation of how it will play to the world’s grandstands, all while filtered through the media’s unilaterally distorted lens.
While the usual suspects of the media can be called upon to spread their legs in unquestioned obedience to Israel’s destruction, the prevailing winds have changed a bit and the stench of sulphur rising from the rhetoric of Arab apologists has rendered the “poor- mouthing” Hamas government a figure increasingly worthy of derision. This time around, it seems as if the bloom is somewhat off the rose, since cease-fires have been routinely ignored by Hamas and the ugly truth about the origin of Gaza’s casualties is trickling out at an increased rate to help balance the regime’s well-oiled public relations machine. Other than the congenitally deranged, no one of consequence any longer doubts that U.N. schools, hospitals, and mosques are home to military HQs and munitions caches, although Hillary Clinton laughingly attributes this barbarism to the cramped conditions in Gaza. And moreover, the suffering of the Israelis in terms of their terrorized civilians and IDF casualties have been brought to light like never before to the drowsy Occidental world, thanks to alternative social media.
Nevertheless, one must awaken before perceiving the truth. Jew hating has become a revived art form in Europe and the U.S., but despite the green light of political fashion, those timid intellects that are still sensitive to the charge of anti-Semitism are quick to profess, through the aid of tortured reasoning, that although they might despise Israel, they hold no such quarrel with Jews per se. Indeed, it is through such contorted moral gyrations that the Left’s eyes glaze over so that evil is comfortably accommodated in minds that can compartmentalize conflicting claims of justice and logic.
Being a fundamentally reasonable people, Israelis have so far shown themselves unwilling to bite the bullet and conduct war in the style of their adversary, who if the tables were turned, would shed no crocodile tears in committing genocide. Although Israel could make short work of this “oozing sore” with its superior firepower by forever assuring that tunnels would not be replaced nor rockets refashioned, it has been restrained both by its own morality and by the effeminate sensibilities of naïve spectators who lack skin in the region. Thus, the IDF must resort to “roof-knocking” and airstrikes conducted with surgical precision in order to help separate the sheep from the goats — even if those adorable lambs wield AK-47’s and have been psychologically conditioned and militarily trained to snipe at advancing soldiers. In the final reckoning, death is no respecter of persons, and its claims are indifferent to whether they are administered through the hands of hardened insurgents or blushing young maidens sporting a bomb vest.
But it all comes down to this: When prosecuting war aims, the ultimate goal is to neutralize an enemy’s resources and collective will to continue fighting — not just temporarily, but permanently. It is madness to treat Hamas’ aggression as just another “mowing the lawn” exercise. Anything less is kicking the can down the road and makes a mockery of holy sacrifices and squandered treasure that have been expended in killing aggressors and shattering their swords. Without experiencing that terrible moral education of suffering that comes as retribution for fomenting wars, a people are trapped within a never-ending loop of futility: where no lessons are learned or malignant regimes replaced. With instances of national evil: where the population is complicit in electing a thoroughly wicked leadership, the people must be held accountable and made to swallow the dregs of their defeat whole. One can only imagine what might have transpired if Nazi Germany were dealt with as Hamas has been. In truth, the goals of Hitler and Hamas are identical in respect to the Jew, and the only distinction separating them is one of resources, not will. Moreover, it was thoroughly necessary to bring the stark implications of total war home to the average German: whose young boys and girls fueled the war effort, while they themselves produced the material necessities to continue German aggression. In the end, that unholy regime was destroyed and discredited in the minds of its population, and Germany was then free to rise from the ashes of its error.
Despite the current obtuseness infecting a planet that increasingly cannot divide evil from good, Israel is reaching the natural limits of its patience with Hamas. The Jewish state, having handed the Palestinians a ring of gold in good faith, has for its trouble been rewarded with missiles from a nest of adders. Incredibly, no nation on earth has been more forgiving, having been confronted and fallen upon time and again with bile and bellicosity. It is imperative to squarely face the fact that within the regimes headed by Hamas and Hizb’allah, the distinction between innocence and guilt — sheep and goats — has grown agonizingly thin. Unless a wave of introspection, delivered through the vehicle of white hot pain, is experienced and the consequences of propping up a wicked regime are internalized by the Palestinian street, many more human lives will be destroyed: either by the living death that comes from a concentrated diet of hate, or from the Israeli juggernaut who has exhausted its tolerance. Speaking to the latter, the frightening discovery of Hamas’ Rosh Hashana Tunnel Plot to massacre and kidnap Israeli civilians from towns situated adjacent to Gaza has only steeled Jewish resolve and unified her as a society, even the perpetually recalcitrant Israeli Left.
That vast system of swamps that poison the Muslim world will one day need to be sterilized and drained, and Gaza has made itself conspicuous through its reckless admixture of audacity and guile. Within any jungle where self-preservation is paramount, any distinction between sheep and goats is wasted on the lion and one baits him to his own singular peril. In that political state of nature, where the decision to either kill or be killed is the only option, do not be surprised when the craven stratagem of delivering indiscriminate death from behind a phalanx of schoolgirls raises the temperature of warfare to the melting point, and the only truly merciful response is the utter abandonment of mercy.

Hard Limits and Electric Cars
by Davis Aurini
Going Green is a fatal conceit. It doesn’t matter if you:
- Run all of your personal devices off of intermittent solar and wind,
- grow your own crops and compost the left-overs,
- reduce your consumption of unnecesary consumerist garbage,
- and learn to fix your own car/plumbing/electrical wires…
…you still haven’t changed the system.
Living off the grid is a wonderfully foolish and tragically heroic thing to do – it certainly increases your anti-fragility – but “Going Green”, if it means anything at all, involves a return to pre-Industrial levels of energy consumption. Grass huts and a pointy stick. The real cost of civilization isn’t the energy you consume, it’s the energy that the mining company consumes – and a mining company cannot afford to have work-stoppages due to the intermittency of solar power, not and remain profitable, the banking/communication industry cannot afford interruptions to their data-transfer, and we can’t afford to feed everybody on home-grown plots of land.
Civilization is like a car going up a steep hill; you can argue that 140 km/h is needlessly wasteful, but if you try and climb the hill at 60 your engine is going to stall. True, you can shift to a lower gear, but in the case of civilization that lower gear is a return to 1700.
Let’s hope the road doesn’t get really steep any time soon; we might have to go back to the old-ways of doing things.

This was originally penned and posted on November 6, AD 2011. This is interesting because this was the Sunday after MF Global happened. It was still thought at this time that Corzine had stolen *only* a few hundred million dollars – not $1.6 billion, nor had it yet occurred to anyone that NO ONE would be held accountable for any of this. PFG Best hadn’t yet happened. The Sentinel Ruling hadn’t happened. The ObamaCare abortion and contraception mandates had not yet happened. Benghazi hadn’t happened. The IRS scandal hadn’t happened. And this was 10 days before I shut down Barnhardt Capital Management.
My decision has been confirmed as correct so many times over that there is no longer any question associated with it. And now, ladies and gentlemen, is the hour in which the full and hideous scope of the horror that dares call itself “modern, Western Christianity” is revealed. After announcing my Federal tax strike, I have been overrun with sickening, nauseating email after email telling me that for me to enjoin a tax strike is “immoral”, “unchristian”, “contrary to scripture”, “pointless”, “a waste” and all the rest. To everyone who has sent such an email, and you know who you are, there are not words to express the depth of my disgust. I am ashamed – yes ASHAMED – of every single one of you. Your cowardice, your failure to grasp even the most rudimentary concepts of Christianity, starting first and foremost with the First Commandment, but most especially the shallowness of your discernment, is repellant to behold. Super-fun Rockband church and Pastor Jason, and the Marxist-homosexualist infiltrated Novus Ordo Catholic parishes with Father Liza-Judy and their bee-ess six-minute sermons about ABSOLUTELY NOTHING have cleared the battlefield for satan in a war of attrition that would make William Tecumseh Sherman blush with shame.
And let’s not forget that other tool of satan which has sent every other clergyman pecker-down in the dirt to lick the hooves of the federal government, wet with the liquid manure of political correctness and the running blood of the unborn, in utter submission: the 501(c) exemption.
Here’s your catechetics and civics lesson for the week.
“Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s” is NOT a release from the First Commandment.
I had one guy email me and tell me that Jesus will not hold any of us responsible for any of the abortions in this country because we JUST HAVE to pay taxes and we have absolutely no choice in the matter. Bullshit. First, what the hell do you think is happening right now? Boys and girls, you are going to be held to account for sitting by and subsidizing the holocaust of the preborn. This country is being brought down as punishment for the genocide that every one of us is partially responsible for.
Secondly, apparently you all have been brainwashed into believing that the I.R. fricking-S is the most powerful entity in the universe, and that being condemned by the IRS is the worst and most permanent fate in the universe and in the realm of humanity. In other words, YOU IDIOTS WORSHIP THE I.R.S. ABOVE GOD. YOU FEAR THE I.R.S., BUT DO NOT FEAR GOD, HIS JUDGEMENT OR HIS WRATH IN THE SLIGHTEST. And you call yourselves Christian? Really?
Now let’s think logically. The words, “Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s; and render unto the Lord that which is the Lord’s” have as a direct corollary the asking of a question. What is that question? Come on. Think. You can do this.
The question is, what rightfully belongs to Caesar and what rightfully belongs to God? The God part is easy. EVERYTHING belongs to God. Uh-oh. Now we have a mathematical conundrum, don’t we? If we believe in God, and we believe in the First Commandment, then “Caesar” is truly OWED nothing. We can CONSENT to pay taxes in a spirit of truth, justice, solidarity and freedom, but only if those four specific ends are served by our taxes.
Let’s go through each of the four:
Barack Obama is a usurper. He is constitutionally ineligible to hold the office of the presidency, and he knows this, the entire Congress knows this, the entire upper-echelon of the military knows this, the entire intelligence community knows this, and the SCOTUS knows this. Barack Obama is an enemy of the United States, who is in a state of open, declared war upon it, its constitution and its people. This is the absence of truth. We are being “led” by a human lie, backed by an entire government of oath-breaking liars. Therefore, the government is illegitimate and has forfeited its licitness.
The Rule of Law is effectively dead. From the presence of Obama himself in the White House, to the lawless Department of Justice, to Fast & Furious, to Solyndra, to the unconstitutional “czars” and “executive orders”, to the Federal Reserve, this is a society ruled by a government of men, not laws. When government is ruled by men and not laws, the determining criterion of how government relates to people becomes brute force of arms and violent coercion, and not transcendent truth. We are utterly deprived of justice by the government itself, and thus the federal government has forfeited its legitimacy. (Note: Remember that when this was originally written, the full knowledge and scope of the financial market lawlessness was not yet known, much less any of the crimes that have occurred or been exposed since November of ARSH 2011. MF Global had happened only six days earlier.)
The government is inciting both race-centered, age-centered and class-based antagonism and violence. In declaring pre-born children non-human, a genocide has been legally sanctioned that has cost 50 million lives AND COUNTING. ObamaCare is poised to exterminate the elderly by determining that their lives are not worth living. The government is consciously and expressly trying to break down solidarity amongst citizens along race and class lines, including the literal dissolving of the territorial borders of the nation, and in that action it forfeits its legitimacy.
From ObamaCare, to the TSA, to the forced acceptance of sexual perversions, to forced “political correctness”, to the overt support of Sharia law and muslim sedition, to the destruction of the Free Exercise and Equal Protection clauses, this government is working consciously and overtly against fundamental human freedom, and has thus forfeited its legitimacy.
1-2-3-4. I don’t owe Caesar a damn thing, and it is now to the point where the continued subsidizing of this utterly lawless and illegitimate government puts me in violaton of the
First Commandment (I AM the LORD thy God; thou shalt not have strange gods before me.) by forcing me to break God’s Law – the Natural Law – in order to follow the laws of the state; the…

Obama Thinks mooslims are Part of Our National Fabric? What a Delusional, Christian Hating, Steaming Piece of Horse Shit!
As Christians Are Purged and Murdered, Obama Stands by the Muslims by Pretending They Helped Build the “Very Fabric” of America
He did say he would “stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” The winds couldn’t get much uglier than they are now. Enabled by Obama’s withdrawal of US forces from Iraq, the Islamic State (a.k.a. ISIS) is purging the region of Christians:
Iraqi Christians are begging for help from the civilized world after Mosul, the northern city where they have lived and worshiped for 2,000 years, was purged of non-Muslims by ISIS, the jihadist terror group that claims to have established its own nation in the region.
Assyrian Christians, including Chaldean and Syriac Catholics, Syriac Orthodox and followers of the Assyrian Church of the East have roots in present day Iraq, Turkey, Syria and Iran that stretch back to the time of Jesus Christ. While they have long been a minority and have faced persecution in the past, they had never been driven completely from their homes as has happened in Mosul under ISIS. When the terror group ordered all to convert to Islam, pay a religious tax or face execution, many chose another option: flight.
Hopelessly outnumbered, they are doomed without a champion to defend them. Their deaths at Muslim hands will not be pleasant ones. Although the Islamophilic liberal media doesn’t like to talk about it, ISIS has been crucifying Christians.
At least France is offering asylum to Christians fleeing ISIS.
Meanwhile, here’s the response from the leader of the most powerful Christian nation. From Obama’s official statement in honor of the Muslim holiday Eid-al-Fitr:
“In the United States, Eid also reminds us of the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to building the very fabric of our nation and strengthening the core of our democracy.”
Muslims are and have always been a tiny unassimilated minority in American culture. Try to name a widely known American Muslim who has made a positive contribution to this nation, who isn’t a pernicious anti-American radical, or who lived before Louis Farrakhan.
Yet they helped build the very fabric of this nation?
Obama isn’t just an ideologue. He is certifiably delusional.
We do have a history with Islam that goes way back. We went to war with the Muslim Barbary Pirates shortly after our founding. That’s where the reference to “the shores of Tripoli” comes from in the Marines’ Hymn.
The only major Muslim contribution to American history came on September 11, 2001. You may remember it, even if the media doesn’t.
It’s easy to see why 72% of American Muslims approve of Obama, in stark contrast to Christians.
What sort of sickness caused people to vote for this freak only a few years after 9/11?

The NRA is supporting moderate [i.e., liberal] Tennessee Senator Lamar Alexander in his primary against Tea Party challenger Joe Carr, despite Alexander’s poor track record on gun issues in Congress. …
Alexander sided with Democrats when gun rights were on the line in 2013. When Rand Paul tried to lead a Republican filibuster of the Obama’s background check bill, Sen. Alexander joined Democrats and provided a crucial vote to allow debate. He also voted to confirm Obama’s gun-grabbing Attorney General, Eric Holder.
In contrast, Gun Owners of America endorses Carr, whose commitment to gun rights appears much more solid.
This is far from the first time that the NRA has chosen to support a moderate Republican with a weak record on guns over a more worthy conservative challenger. The group endorsed several moderate candidates in 2014 including Mitch McConnell, Mike Simpson and Thad Cochran.
Like Alexander, Mitch McConnell won the NRA’s support despite having a history of weakness on gun issues.
To have any weight to throw around in Washington, you have to be big. Unfortunately, the bigger you are, the more corrupted you become. Overall the NRA is still a force for good, but if we don’t keep an eye on it, it might not always be.
Islam is an evil political system.
There is no such thing as “islamic extremism” versus “moderate islam” any more than there was a “moderate Nazism”.
To understand this truism, one need only replace contemporary commentary or reportage on islam with the words “Nazism” and “Third Reich” to understand the abject imbecility of the entire notion of a “moderate” islam. Nope. The islamic political system, like Nazism, must be exterminated from the face of the earth – not merely contained, not merely subjugated. Exterminated.
