From The, "But I Never Thought It Would Affect Me!" Files....

Unless you are a complete idiot or have had your head stuck in the sand all of your life, the following article should evoke no more than a "mehhh, whatever" response.

DALLAS - They’re not criminals. They’ve broken no laws. But they’re being held against their will by the State of Texas. Why? It’s a tragic story about what can happen when you are alone in the world and lose control of your rights, your money, and your ability to complain.

Jean and Michael Kidd never imagined their retirement would play out like this. “I feel like I am not in America,” said Michael Kidd. “I can’t believe I have been hi-jacked off the street, virtually from the hospital, and imprisoned,” Kidd told FOX 4.

have no children or relatives nearby. In November Michael fell and broke his hip. He was taken to a Plano hospital and into surgery. After a few days, the hospital called the state Adult Protective Services to report Jean had been in the waiting room for days and Michael Kidd worked as an engineer at KDFW for 23 years. He retired in 2001 with a pension, retirement account, and social security. Last month, he called the station for help. The Kiddswasn’t eating. What happened next is a complicated, legal tale told in hundreds of pages of documents filed with the Collin County Probate Court.

Caseworkers paint a picture of two incompetent old people, age 67 and 70, suffering from dementia. Reports say the Kidds have mismanaged their finances and used poor judgment, that Michael is verbally abusive and even attempted to assault Jean. Michael says Jean has memory trouble but denies everything else. A judge determined the Kidds were incapacitated and unable to care for themselves. The state took over the Kidds lives, sent them to the Countryside Nursing Home in Pilot Point, and is now burning through their money to pay for their care.

The monthly tab for a couple at Countryside is about seven thousand dollars. Court records show, for five months’ care, the guardian paid eleven thousand dollars out of the Kidds’ accounts. The state’s Medicaid program kicks in the rest. “I could be at the Hilton for this kind of money,” Kidd told Oliver.

The state appointed a financial guardian in Greenville to manage the Kidds money and pay their bills. When they asked for an accounting, the state refused. Representatives for the state stated the Kidds did not have the mental capacity to even ask for their own financial or medical records. Yet, much of their personal information is public record. The state tried to get a temporary restraining order to stop FOX 4 from reporting the Kidds’ story, saying the couple does not have the authority to consent to an interview and that our report will cause them irreparable harm. Judge Weldon Copeland ruled against the state. He said he would welcome a neighbor or family member to serve as a guardian but no one has come forward. The state is the last resort.

“We have to buy this out of our own money,” says Michael. The state gives each of the Kidds a measly sixty dollars a month of their own money. They use it to keep a small refrigerator stocked with healthy food. Jean has lost twenty pounds and two teeth and says no one has seemed to notice. They have no personal belongings in their room other than the television. All of their remaining possessions sit in their house in Richardson.

The Kidds did have court-appointed representation from attorney, Bert Starr. Starr would not comment but court records show he billed their account for ten hours of legal work. The work Starr performed on their case was cut from the record.

“How could this happen in a country that talks about and brags about freedom,” says Michael Kidd. “And yet this is how we treat our old people. This can happen to any of you.”

The state has the responsibility to make sure the Kidds are safe.


The followup story,

DALLAS - The state is playing hard ball with an elderly couple who claims they are being held against their will. Michael and Jean Kidd just want to get out of the nursing home and back into their house but Fox 4 has learned the home may not be around if the state follows through with its plan.

The Kidds lost their freedom and now it appears they may lose their greatest asset, their home. A trustee’s deed filed in mid August shows the Kidd’s Richardson home is scheduled to be auctioned Tuesday.

The state determined the Richardson couple was incapacitated or unable to care for themselves after Michael went to the hospital with a broken hip. Jean suffers from memory loss. The state took over all of their finances and placed them in a nursing home.

“I think we have way overstepped our bounds,” said Senator Nelson. Nelson says she was appalled to see how the state is taking care of the Kidd’s home. The power was shut off, leaving a mess in the kitchen. There is a broken window and the yard is overgrown. And now the state is trying to unload their neglected house for $156,000.00.

Collin County appraised the home this year for $191,000.00


Of course the words that should send a chill down your spine are, " the State has the responsibility to make sure the Kidds are safe."

No, the state shouldn't have that responsibility.

Unfortunately many a shortsighted person has endowed it with such power over the decades and generally applauds it for wielding that power most of the time.

For example child labor laws seem like such a basic and moral thing, yet the fact remains that it allows the government the authority to oversee how the family life is ruled (displacing the parents). So Christians don't complain when the state orders you to stop teaching your children Christianity. After all if The State has the "right" to supervise their physical health then they certainly have the "right" to supervise their mental health as well.

In response some would argue that some parents are bad parents. That may be so, but remember, all government is bad government, no exceptions. The general thinking among the Founding Fathers was that government, at best, is a necessary evil. When you give power to The State you are giving power to an institution that is inherently evil in its construct. (and no, I'm not advocating anarchy. Government is necessary. I'm just pointing out that it needs to be kept in check by an ever watchful voting block)

George Washington stated that democratic government "will either be a fearful servant or a terrible master." There is no in between. It will either serve the people in fear or rule over them with malice.

Yet how many reading the above story will grow angry with righteous indignation at this episode, but will nevertheless nod approvingly at laws that enforce desegregation in housing and schooling?

You see, when the government tells you that you cannot discriminate it has removed your ability to exercise Freedom of Association. It is already telling you where and how you can live.

So if The State can tell you who you must live, work and vacation among when you are 35 or 40, don't be too surprised when it seizes your property and sticks you in a Home when you're 70.

The American people have no right whatsoever to be outraged over the treatment of the couple in the story.

After all, there are unqualified minorities currently sitting in positions of power and influence solely because the government exercised the same authority (through affirmative action and the like) that it used to take away every personal belonging an older couple had, up to and including, their freedom.

So choke it down America. When you pay lip service to "equality" and applaud the power used to enforce it, you make yourself an accomplice to empowering that which, in accordance with its nature, devours truth, light and freedom.




And a note....the report on the couple indicates that they have no children and no neighbors have come forward to assist them.

That is just more of the price paid for diversity in America.

Nothing illustrates the vapidity of mainstream intellectualizing about immigration than the ironic story of social science superstar Robert D. Putnam.

Last month. Putnam finally published an article about his lavishly-funded 2000 survey of 41 American communities that found that ethnic diversity, especially immigrant diversity, damages trust and "social capital."

Putnam's survey results briefly surfaced in the media in 2001, when I wrote about it in a column entitled " Diversity Causes Bowling Alone." I offered personal anecdotes to illustrate Putnam's finding that living in an immigrant neighborhood makes residents less likely to volunteer.

After that, however, Putnam maintained virtual radio silence on the subject of his huge study for five years, until he gave an indiscreet interview to John Lloyd, a columnist for the Financial Times, in the fall of 2006. Lloyd wrote:

"His research shows that the more diverse a community is, the less likely its inhabitants are to trust anyone – from their next-door neighbour to the mayor. … 'In the presence of diversity, we hunker down,' he said. 'We act like turtles. The effect of diversity is worse than had been imagined. And it's not just that we don't trust people who are not like us. In diverse communities, we don't trust people who do look like us.'"

The couple in the story reside in Texas, one of the most "diverse" states in the union and where Whites are just 47% of the population, and dropping.


Even Though We Don't Exist, We Only Recently Arrived!...

(note: the information in the following article has been misrepresented by the media which is eager to twist it)

White Europeans could have evolved as recently as 5,500 years ago, according to research which suggests that the early humans who populated Britain and Scandinavia had dark skins for millenniums.

It was only when early humans gave up hunter-gathering and switched to farming about 5,500 years ago that white skin began to be favoured, say the researchers.

This is because farmed food was deficient in vitamin D, a vital nutrient. Humans can make this in their skin when exposed to sunlight, but dark skin is much less efficient at it.


Of course many Asians and peoples across North America reside in similar climates yet they are red, brown and yellow skinned (as well as possessing clearly distinct skull and skeletal builds and facial characteristics).
The point remains though that "dark skin" is not defined in the context of the study alluded to. Sean Connery has "dark skin" compared to Roger Moore, for example.

But the kicker of the article is that this same media that spends so much time telling us race is a social construct turns right around and tells us that White People recently came about.

But that is the Left.

It is a world of unending lies, hypocrisies and delusions of a Jonestown type.

They will tell us there is no such thing as race on the one hand, then preach to us the sacredness of diversity on the other.
After all, if there is no such thing as race, then there can be no such thing as diversity.

And for those who would shout, "we all bleed red", yeah, well, so do rats and monkeys!

Rightwing Marxists...

WASHINGTON -- Rep. Charles Rangel failed to report as much as $1.3 million in outside income -- including up to $1 million for a Harlem building sale -- on financial-disclosure forms he filed between 2002 and 2006, according to newly amended records.

It's always a bit tragic watching the lilly-liverd "conservative" pundits take on such an issue.
Their response is always of the, "the rich and powerful get away with things the common man doesn't", rhetoric.
These same conservatives who will vehemently deny the realities of racial conflict will then turn right around and casually engage in "class warfare" talk.

And ironically, both positions (the denial of racial differences and the notion of Class Warfare) are fundamentally, and exclusively, of Marxist origin...

The Gift Keeps On Giving...

Last election was certainly beneficial to the true Right. The Left has decided to lay their cards on the table in the ill fated notion that their ideological ascent was solidified. It wasn't. White America has viewed the political environment of the past few decades as nothing more than letting the Left amuse themselves for a moment so that they might learn a valuable lesson about the ridiculousness of liberalism. Sort of like Andy letting Barny Fife run the jail for an afternoon.

And liberaldom is helping to illustrate this point more and more,

On Thursday, responding to a strongly worded memo calling for city voters to elect a black mayor, each of the three top candidates responded by either downplaying race or tackling it head on.

The memo notes that for the first time since 1974, “African Americans could lose the mayoral seat in Atlanta, Georgia, especially if there is a runoff;

“Time is of the essence because in order to defeat a Norwood (white) mayoral candidacy we have to get out now and work in a manner to defeat her without a runoff, and the key is a significant black turnout in the general election,” the memo states.

The memo specifically endorsed City Council President Lisa Borders.


KABC’s Michael Linder was the only broadcast reporter at Thursday night’s town hall health care debate at Wade AME Church when Rep. Diane Watson [D] made some astonishing comments including claims that those opposed to health care reform are attempting to destroy a president “who looks like me.”

Later, Watson praised heath care in Fidel Castro’s Cuba — and, it seemed, the Cuban revolution itself.

Patson Chipiro, head of the Zimbabwean opposition party in Mhondoro district.
His wife, Dadirai, told them he was in Harare but would be back later in the
day, and the men departed.

An hour later they were back. They grabbed
Mrs Chipiro and chopped off one of her hands and both her feet. Then they threw
her into her hut, locked the door and threw a petrol bomb through the window.

Mrs Chipiro, 45, a former pre-school teacher, was the second wife of a

Friday by Zanu (PF) militiamen. Pamela Pasvani, the 21-year-old pregnant wife of

Formerly White ruled South Africa, now in the hands of blacks,
South Africans today are deeply demoralised people. The lights are going out
in homes, mines, factories and shopping malls as the national power authority,
Eskom - suffering from mismanagement, lack of foresight, a failure to maintain
power stations and a flight of skilled engineers to other countries - implements
rolling power cuts that plunge towns and cities into daily chaos.Major
industrial projects are on hold. The only healthy enterprise now worth being
involved in is the sale of small diesel generators to powerless households but
even this business has run out of supplies and spare parts from China.Newly
elected African National Congress (ANC) leader Jacob Zuma, the state
president-in-waiting, narrowly escaped being jailed for raping an HIV-positive
woman last year, and faces trial later this year for soliciting and accepting
bribes in connection with South Africa's shady multi-billion-pound arms deal
with British, German and French weapons manufacturers.Commenting on the massive
power cuts, Trevor Gaunt, professor of electrical engineering at the University
of Cape Town, who warned the government eight years ago of the impending crisis,
said: "The damage is huge, and now South Africa looks just like the rest of
Africa. Maybe it will take 20 years to recover."Last week, for example,
18-year-old Razelle Botha, who passed all her A-levels with marks of more than
90% and was about to train as a doctor, returned home with her father, Professor
Willem Botha, founder of the geophysics department at the University of
Pretoria, from buying pizzas for the family. Inside the house, armed gunmen
confronted them. They shot Professor Botha in the leg and pumped bullets into
Razelle.One severed her spine. Now she is fighting for her life and will never
walk again, and may never become a doctor. The gunmen stole a laptop computer
and a camera.Feeding the perfect storm are the two centres of ANC power in the
country at the moment. On the one hand, there is the ANC in parliament, led by
President Mbeki, who last Friday gave a state-of-the-nation address and
apologised to the country for the power crisis.Mbeki made only the briefest of
mentions of the national Aids crisis, with more than six million people
HIV-positive. He did not address the Scorpions crisis. The collapsing public
hospital system, under his eccentric health minister Manto Tshabalala-Msimang,
an alcoholic who recently jumped the public queue for a liver transplant,
received no attention. And the name Jacob Zuma did not pass his lips.Zuma, a

the Rift Valley, 190 miles northwest of the capital Nairobi, officials said.A
government commission says more than 600 people have been killed in violence
that erupted after the Dec. 27...One man staggered past with blood streaming
from the stump of his arm, which had been cut off with a machete. The arm was
taken by a group of youths and placed on top of a pile of stones barricading an
alleyway. In a separate incident, around 50 people attacked welder Dominic
Owour, a 23-year-old Luo, and tried to cut off both his hands at the forearm,
Owour said.Both men said police watching the attacks did not intervene.A local

this river, you won't see a single sign of development. When the whites left, we
didn't just stay where we were. We went backwards.""The river is the artery of
Congo's economy," he says. "When the Belgians and the Portuguese were here,
there were farms and plantations — cashews, peanuts, rubber, palm oil. There was
industry and factories employing 3,000 people, 5,000 people. But since
independence, no Congolese has succeeded.Around 45,000 people die each month in
the DRC as a result of the social collapse brought on by civil war, according to
a study released in January by the International Rescue Committee. It estimated

Congolese like Le Blanc, the difficulties of today blot out the cruelties of the
past. "On this river, all that you see — the buildings, the boats — only whites
did that. After the whites left, the Congolese did not work. We did not know how
to. For the past 50 years, we've just declined." He pauses. "They took this

Formerly White ruled New Orleans, now ruled by blacks,
As District Attorney Eddie Jordan descended last week to his moment of
greatest political vulnerability, a group of prominent business leaders met with
New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin to craft an exit strategy for the beleaguered
prosecutor -- one that chiefly involved giving him a soft landing in a private
sector job, sources familiar with the talk said Tuesday.The unprecedented move
ends a tenure mired in criticism over a widely perceived failure to successfully
prosecute violent criminals, chronic turnover in his office, and most recently
the bizarre disclosure that a robbery suspect fled to Jordan's Algiers house
only to then become a suspect in the shooting of a New Orleans police
officer.Now, Jordan's undoing appears rooted in one of his first official acts:
Systematically firing white employees and replacing them with black applicants
two weeks after taking office. While it's hardly uncommon for politicians to
clean house and install loyalists, a federal jury of eight white and two black
jurors unanimously found that Jordan, who is black, fired 43 employees -- all
white but for one Hispanic -- because of their race.Of 56 total dismissals, 53
of the employees were white. Within six months of his administration, Jordan had
hired 68 people, 92 percent of them African-American. Critics further have
suggested that the firings had the effect of stripping the office of
institutional knowledge and experienced talent, throwing its daily management
into confusion and setting off a trend of poor working conditions and chronic
turnover.This criticism climaxed this summer, when his office dismissed charges
against suspects in the 2006 murders of musician and teacher Dinerral Shavers
and the Central City massacre that left five teenagers dead in the street. Both
cases fell apart, with Jordan claiming uncooperative witnesses.Earlier this
year, Jordan was further lambasted for his office's repeated release of
suspects, even occasionally ones arrested for violent crimes, because his
prosecutors could not make a decision about whether to press charges under the
state mandated deadline. These releases are called "701s," shorthand for Article
701 of the Louisiana Code of Criminal Procedure, which states that no one can be
held longer than 60 days on a felony arrest without an indictment.In the latest
and strangest flare-up, police recently questioned Jordan after robbery suspect
Elton Phillips, 20, allegedly fled to his home after holding up a man outside a
nearby Algiers Shell station.-

Below is excerpted review by Jared Taylor of 'Why Race Matters'........................................................................................................"

As Prof. Levin points out, a book like Why Race Matters should not have to
be written. The only sensible conclusion to be drawn from simple observation is
that races differ: “To put the matter bluntly, the question is not why anyone
would believe the races are unequal in intelligence, but why anyone would
believe them equal.” For centuries, people as different as Arabs and Englishmen
have judged Africans to be unintelligent, lascivious, jolly, and keen on rhythm.

Today, in whatever corner of the globe one looks, blacks behave in certain
consistent ways.There is now not much informed opposition (though a great deal
of uninformed opposition) to the conclusion that IQ tests test intelli- gence,
that intelligence is at least partly hereditary, and that the races differ in
average IQ.Prof. Levin is at his most original and provocative when he sets
aside well-established data on intelligence and takes up the even more
controversial question of morality.

For example, the widely used Minnesota
Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI), which subdivides personality into a
number of categories, shows consistent differences in how blacks and whites
evaluate themselves. Blacks, for example, hold themselves in higher regard than
whites (or, in today’s jargon, have “higher self-esteem”). They are consistently
more likely to agree with statements like:

I am an important person.
I am

entirely self-confident.If given the chance I could make a good leader of
I have often had to take orders from someone who did not know as much as

I did.

The common assumption that blacks are “taught to hate themselves” is
wrong; blacks are quite pleased with themselves. At the same time, they
consistently score higher than whites on the MMPI scales for such things as
Hypomania, Psychopathy, Schizophrenia, and Masculinity, which are precisely the
traits that distinguish incarcerated criminals from the rest of us. They tend to
agree, for example, with statements like:

Most people are honest chiefly
through fear of being caught.
Most people make friends because friends are likely

to be useful to them.Most people will use somewhat unfair means to gain profit
or an advantage rather than lose it.
It is not hard for me to ask help from my

friends even though I cannot return the favor.

Another finding is that
blacks are more impulsive or present-oriented than whites. Given a choice
between a small candy bar today and a big one tomorrow, black children are more
likely than white children to want the small one today.

Finally, even within
races, moral reasoning is closely associated with intelligence. Intelligence
does not guarantee good behavior, but a certain level is necessary for
self-knowledge and the comprehension of moral distinctions.Prof. Levin does not
flinch from drawing what may appear to be an unkind conclusion: Given the crime
rates, social irresponsibility, lack of foresight, impulsiveness, and general
self-centeredness of black behavior, blacks probably have a different inherent
capacity and appreciation for morality.

He proposes that this difference can
be explained by the environments in which blacks and whites (and Asians)
evolved. In a warm climate where food can be gathered year-round, people do not
need to develop habits of cooperation and planning in order to get through the
winter. In the north, it took mutual trust and cooperation for groups of men to
bring down large game, so reciprocal morality evolved along with intelligence.

Climate and terrain could also have influenced sexual behavior. Since
African women could gather food for themselves and their children even if a mate
abandoned them, there was less pressure to insist that men support their
children. For the same reason, there was less evolutionary pressure on fathers
to stick around. In the north, a man who abandoned his children might well leave
no descendants to behave in like manner. And in fact, the family habits of
Africans and transplanted blacks are extremely loose by white standards.

What we think of as moral behavior, including sexual morality, is now known
to be heavily influenced by genes. As Prof. Levin points out, there is no
biological reason to expect different populations to have evolved exactly the
same distribution of morality-influencing genes. Therefore it is likely that
“the races have … evolved divergent evaluations of cooperativeness, aggression,
rule-following, and concern with the future.”

That blacks care less about
others and worry less about the future is suggested in virtually every area of
behavior. Crime is only the most obvious example, nor is it the expression of
wretchedness and self-loathing that excuse-making whites pretend it to be. Prof.
Levin notes that “the criminal behavior of young black males just does not look
like an expression of despair. In account after account, these individuals come
across as full of themselves and unrepentant.” He might have added that if
blacks were really reduced to hopelessness by white oppression, they would
presumably have high suicide rates, whereas in every age group blacks kill
themselves at only one half to one quarter the white rate.

Africa In Our Midst...

MARION, AL (WSFA) - Just one day after a riot in the small Perry County town of Marion, a curfew for everyone.

The Marion Police Department says everyone is to be off the streets between the hours of 10pm and 7am until further notice.


A weekend altercation exploded into full fledged mayhem that spread from a school to City Hall, and it took more than police to bring the situation under control.

Physical altercations involving multiple weapons left a number of people injured and six behind bars. Police say it started Sunday evening with an altercation between two families. That altercation led to gunfire and unfortunately poured over to this morning at Francis Marion High School.

There, reports of bricks, rocks, golf clubs, and even Clorox were said to be used as ammunition for the herb of adults and at least one student.

It didn't end there, however.

When one family came to file then report at City Hall, it happened again. Part two of the riot involving nearly 175 people resulted in the mayor being assaulted, the police chief struck across the head with an iron pipe, 2 rushed to the hospital, and a number of others injured.


Races in Marion:

  • Black (62.5%)
  • White Non-Hispanic (36.1%)
  • Hispanic (1.0%)
  • Two or more races (0.6%)


That's the second curfew put in place, involving adults as well, in the past month. And in both cases it was due to minority lawlessness.

Revising The Revisions...

Funny how when Christians wish to put atheists in their place they always pull out the "80% of Americans are Christians" statistic, yet when they want to put on the "whoa is we" mask they like to claim they are a persecuted minority.

Example, Chuck Baldwin's article at VDare,

America's Christian heritage is both rich and deep. What most historians and educators refuse to acknowledge, our forebears understood clearly: it was mostly Christians and churches that formed and shaped the new land that became known as the United States of America.

No Chuck, it was White Men that built America. Their ideology can only be viewed as having a measured effect of their actions or accomplishments (which is the subject for another occasion).

For example, when discussing the brave exploits of the passengers on board the Mayflower, people seem to have forgotten that the voyage was mostly the endeavor of a single church congregation.

And people like Chuck seem to forget that when the nuts on board the Mayflower arrived there were already English settlers here in the New World, in Virginia.
It also seems to escape people like Chuck's attention that New England has been ground zero of the liberal egalitarian philosophy that has ruined the nation. From the Civil War to the so called "Civil Rights", Mayflower descendants have been among the strongest advocates for Liberaldom.

The famous French historian, Alexis De Tocqueville, credited the pulpits and churches of Colonial America with inspiring America's successful War for Independence and subsequent prosperity much more than its institutions of learning, halls of Congress, or industries of invention. From the very beginning, America's Christians and pastors were intricately involved in the establishment and building of this republic.

This is another one of those blatant bits of hypocritical rhetoric many Christians engage in. On the one hand Christianity has been the bedrock of Western Civilization and America, while on the other hand they are mere strangers in a strange land, constantly persecuted by the "Prince of this World".

Ignoring the great examples and exhortations of both Testaments, today's Christians seem to have lazily latched onto a modern-day "divine right of kings" philosophy, through which they have become the pathetic slaves of arrogant and pompous political wolves dressed (barely) in the sheepskins of legitimacy.

It will probably never occur to this guy that when the Founding Fathers overthrew the royal system of government they ushered in the very liberal scourge that is now engulfing most of the world.
And I guess he missed the part of the history lesson where one finds out that the vote for Revolution and the drafting of the Constitution was done behind closed doors by a merchant class oligarchy (aka, the Founding Fathers).

How is it that Christians do not seem to recognize the devilish doctrines of socialism, fascism, elitism, or globalism for what they are?

How can anybody who promotes a universal religious system that advocates the equality of all men, expect to be taken seriously when he bemoans socialism and globalism? Christianity is a global empire and "missionaries" (be they Catholic, Protestant or Independents)are no more than agents of a political empire advocating for the global hegemony of their political system.

How is it that these corrupt politicians—who vote to kill unborn babies, merge America into internationalist and global entities, strip Americans of their God-given natural right of self defense, promote homosexual marriage, or allow America to lose its identity, culture, and heritage through unbridled illegal immigration—remain in "good standing" with any number of supposed "Christian" churches?

Most of the above things are actually more openly promoted by Christians than by politicians. And I note that he didn't add miscegenation to that list. Nor the loss of 'Freedom of Association' through the loss of the right to discriminate in housing and schools.

And why not oppose all immigration, Chuck? Legal and illegal? Is it just the technicality that bothers you? If the law is changed to read that by simply setting foot on American soil a foreigner become an American, will Chuck have no problem with the flood of third-world immigrants?

The complete irrelevance of today's organized church in America to the preservation of Christian liberty and constitutional government is especially disconcerting to those of us who still have freedom's fire burning in our souls. Where do we go for respite and instruction?

Well here is the problem with your "freedom" Chuck.......many people will exercise their "freedom" by not giving a rat's ass.

"Freedom" is a formless concept, the definitions of which are either ethnically/tribally defined and outlined or left to be carried by whatever breeze happens to be passing by. Because what is freedom for one race of people will be quite different for another.

I am convinced that it is through these independent, unaffiliated, unorganized, or underground churches that relevancy will return. It is in these churches where Christians can be taught the Biblical principles of Natural Law, where children who are disciplined and know how to behave are not considered oddities, where pastors aren't afraid to proclaim truth, where people are still committed to constitutional government—and understand the difference between a democracy and a republic—and where self-serving neocons are not regarded as heroes.

You want to know what is ballsy?

Read that above paragraph from Mr. Baldwin again. Now take a look at his bio on his website,

Established in June, 1975, Crossroad Baptist Church has enjoyed the leadership of Founding Pastor Dr. Chuck Baldwin ever since that first service, where a total of only 6 people were in attendance.

In 1985 the church was recognized by the late President Ronald Reagan for its unusual growth and influence.

The church has gone through five building programs and has just moved into its current 750-seat auditorium and office complex, and is in the process of constructing a new gymnasium/youth center/fellowship hall.

Some of the choice spiritual and political leaders of the nation have spoken in this pulpit including the late Dr. Jerry Falwell, Pat Buchanan, former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore, and former Ambassador Alan Keyes.

When the pastor of a mega-church, who also hosts a radio program and hobnobs with celebrity politicians, talks of the "underground church" you know he is either being in-you-face- with hypocrisy or he is simply caught up in his own hype. (oh, did I forget to mention he ran for President in 2008?)

The Many Gods Of The White Christian...

As the Islamic observance of Ramadan begins this year, an increasing number of Christians will also be entering into 30 days of prayer and fasting. Across the world, a growing number of Christians have been joining the movement...


But a smaller left-wing Christian sect, often referred to as "the emerging church," is now also taking a very different approach. This year, a group of emergent Christians led by one of the United States most influential pastors, Brian McLaren, has announced that it will actually be "observing" the Muslim holy month, along with a Muslim "partner." Ramadan is the month that Muslims thank Allah, their god, for revealing the Quran to Muhammad, their prophet. On McLaren's personal blog, he recently announced his intentions: "We, as Christians, humbly seek to join Muslims in this observance of Ramadan as a God-honoring expression of peace, fellowship, and neighborliness."


Evangelicals (almost LITERALLY) worship jews and the state of Israel like a golden calf. That these other Christians are worshiping muslims is hardly "shocking".


Where's The Ambition?...

Of more than 500 senior policymaking positions requiring Senate confirmation, just 43 percent have been filled — a reflection of a White House that grew more cautious after several nominations blew up last spring, a Senate that is intensively investigating nominees and a legislative agenda that has consumed both.


Seven months into his presidency, fewer than half of his top appointees are in place advancing his agenda.


This really caught my eye. What's this White House waiting for?

Of particular interest, note the categories (provided on a chart at the link) with the greatest percentages filled. They are the more traditional, politically stationary, positions in State and Defense.

But the positions "closer to the street" have yet to be approved or filled. And those areas, Justice, Treasury, Transportation, Commerce etc... are much more likely to have a direct effect on the common citizen.

They are also less likely to draw (immediate) closer scrutiny from the media, think tanks and activist groups.

Put it this way, whatever agenda is to be pursued and implemented, it will be through the positions that have as yet to be halfway filled.

DUBLIN -- The Irish government plans to bring into force a new law in October that critics say is a return to medieval justice.

The legislation, aimed at providing judges with clear direction on the 1937 Constitution's blasphemy prohibition, imposes a fine of up to 25,000 euros -- about $39,000 -- for anyone who "publishes or utters matter that is [intentionally meant to be] grossly abusive or insulting in relation to matters held sacred by any religion, thereby causing outrage among a substantial number of the adherents of that religion."


I don't have a problem with such laws, providing they are ethnic-based. This new law however is premised on the projected demographic transformation (through immigration) Ireland is on course to make over the coming decades with islam becoming the majority religion.

Those who have romantic notions about Ireland's "struggle for independence" should take a stroll through Ireland today. Besides being overrun with increasingly pushy foreigners it is also increasingly coming under the power of, yep, foreign lords (via the European Union).

The "freedom fighters" in Ireland have always been headed by Internationalist-minded leftists.

In a century the Irish will be a minority on an island which will be torn between an increasingly islamic immigrant minority (rapidly reaching majority) on the one hand and corporate Euro-dominated autocrats on the other.


Birds Of A Feather F-Lock...

Worried about sharia courts in America? Don't worry. Middle-eastern peoples have been doing similar things for a while,

Rabbis may soon have to answer to a higher authority -- state court judges.

A New York State Supreme Court judge recently overturned a rabbinical-arbitration ruling, angering rabbis who are worried that Jewish justice could be headed for extinction.

"If the judgment is affirmed, it would be useless to go to a rabbinic court," said Marc Stern, acting co-executive director and general counsel of the American Jewish Congress.

Rabbinical judges who sit on what are called "beth din" courts often handle cases that New York City Jews don't want in the regular judicial system, such as matters involving tax evasion or other illegalities.


Also, under Jewish law, religious litigants are actually obligated to initially bring disputes to a beth din rather than secular courts.


The similarities between jews and muslims are as numerous as they are unique to those peoples mindsets. Such as the fact that jewish reaction to Holocaust denial and muslim reaction to Islam denial are similar in their (from a Western perspective) extremes.

Where Whites Are Less Than 15% Of The Population...

PATERSON, N.J. - Curfews might not be just for kids anymore in one city in northern New Jersey.

Officials in Paterson are considering one for people of all ages in a bid to curb violence after a spate of deadly shootings.

Several experts say they believe it would be the nation's first curfew of its type to include adults.


Races in Paterson:

  • Hispanic (50.1%)
  • Black (32.9%)
  • Other race (27.6%)
  • White Non-Hispanic (13.2%)
  • Two or more races (6.2%)
  • American Indian (1.0%)
  • Asian Indian (1.0%)
(Total can be greater than 100% because Hispanics could be counted in other races)

The Empire Doth Rumble...

Switzerland will hand over details of about 4,450 UBS bank accounts to U.S. authorities, settling a tax dispute that has threatened Swiss banking secrecy, the two governments said on Wednesday.

The Swiss government has also agreed to review and process requests by the United States seeking information from Swiss banks besides UBS about account holders who may have tried to evade U.S. taxes, the U.S. government said.


Foolish Swiss. America doesn't even respect its own borders and laws. What ever made them think we would respect theirs?


Gee, Really...

The U.S. must address the massive amounts of “monetary medicine” that have been pumped into the financial system and now pose threats to the world’s largest economy and its currency, billionaire Warren Buffett said.


Massive unsustainable debt is bad economically? Really?
Gee, I guess you're never too old to learn.

What a shocker...

Never Let A Good Crisis Go To Waste...

Mr Armey, 69, predicted that the “grassroots” backlash against what he called Mr Obama’s “hostile government takeover of a sixth of the US economy” would cause the reform to fail spectacularly. But he predicted that supporters of reform would attempt to win over the “bed-wetters caucus” – a group of wavering lawmakers who spanned both parties, he said – with a fear campaign in the autumn.

“In September or October there will be a hyped up outbreak of the swine flu which they’ll say is as bad as the bubonic plague to scare the bed-wetters to vote for healthcare reform,” said Mr Armey. “That is the only way they can push something on to the American people that the American people don’t want.”

Remember The Mass Riots In France Recently?...


Well of course not as they were (essentially) censored by the media. "Youths" (which is media speak for any non-White between the ages of 18 and 75) rampaged through the streets, attacking White people and burning every car in sight.
And the media was MIA on the entire event.

Could the same thing happen in America?


But it could easily happen in the Peoples Republic of North America, has been receiving e-mails about rumors of sporadic rioting in Chicago last week. The media has been totally silent. One reader e-mailed us to say that he heard on the Chicago police scanner that a “100 person fight” was in progress. The rioting happened last Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.

Three males were shot Sunday morning at 4:50 AM. There were driving through an alley when their car was riddled with bullets. All three are in stable condition.

Now home video has made it’s way online. This has been totally blacklisted, censored, and covered up in the “mainstream” media. This is Obama’s home base.

The following information was posted with the video.

Increased police patrols are promised in the area around Leland and Sheridan in Chicago’s Uptown neighborhood after “near riot-like” activity in the streets the past few nights.

Video from the area appears to show about a dozen people running back and forth in the street, breaking bottles and yelling. One visitor wrote of “near riot-like gang fighting,” and said that shots were fired Thursday night at about 10:30.

On the Web site, commenters express fear and anger over the activity.

“This is by no means an isolated incident,” reads a comment by Michael. “This same exact scene played out multiple times this Spring as well.”

“We have had 3 nights in a row of this and never in my 10 years of living here have I seen it so bad,” wrote another resident.

“I’m scared to walk my dog after 7:30PM in this neighborhood! Sad!,” wrote “KenmoreResident.”

In the video, purportedly shot Wednesday night, a squad car passes through and tells the crowd to disperse. Later, several marked cars appear. Police later confirmed that one person was arrested. One officer suffered minor injuries.

Residents say its taken repeated complaints to get any action from the city.


The following stories are at that link at the bottom.


Civilization As A Fashion Statement?...

One of the more interesting battlegrounds on the cultural front is French President Sarkozy’s stated intention to outlaw the burqa from the streets of France.

Mr. Sarkozy calls the all-encompassing female Muslim garment "a sign of subservience, a sign of debasement" that deprives the women of their identity. Indeed, when the face is totally masked, it could be anybody under the black or blue sack.

This issue is not a low-rent culture clash about a minor religious custom: it is all about individual freedom and the survival of Western values under the Islamic immigration onslaught.


No, the burqa is not just an expression of Muslim female modesty, but it is also a highly effective territorial marking device, showing Islam's expansion into Europe and beyond in a personal and daily manner. It is an obtrusive political statement of
demographic jihad: "We're here, we're not changing, and we're not leaving."

The above is just a dumb argument all around. Europeans fit in Europe. Non-Europeans do not. It's no more complicated that that.

Civilization is more than adherence to a creed, it is a blood and earth reality. Western Civilization was not formed by a philosophy or religion. Western Civilization is that which is endemic to those of European blood. It is thousands of years old.
Those not of that blood can never "assimilate".
The un-assimilated Gypsies and Jews are a testimony to that.

The notion that Arabs will become Western by simply dressing Western, is preposterous.

It would be like arguing that if Americans were to wear big fur hats they'd start speaking Russian and become communists.

How Would Our Ancestors Vote?...

from Frosty Woolridge in 2005,

America faces the most critical juncture in its 229 year history. Indolent Americans sit on their Lazy Boy recliners wielding a remote while their country fractures before their eyes. It’s been slow for the past 30 years, but it’s quickening in every sector of our country.

Have you noticed more and more people speaking different languages at the supermarket? Schools? Movies? At your local bank? Have you noticed radio stations and TV crackling with Spanish or other languages in our English speaking America? Have you seen more people disrespecting the singing of our national anthem? Have you noticed our laws being broken such as red lights being run or people fleeing accident scenes where they were the cause? Have you noticed more trash in your state and national parks, especially in California, Arizona, Texas and Georgia?

Have you noticed more flags being flown from other countries instead of Old Glory? Did you know that more Mexican flags fly from houses, cars and establishments in California more than the Stars and Stripes? Have you noticed what has happened to the Golden State? Texas? Arizona? How about Georgia or Miami, Florida?

Have you ever been incredulous about hearing something that sounded so preposterous that it "couldn’t be true?" Take a second look.

You are watching the "Coming Breakup of America." That’s right. Your country. It is moving methodically, perversely, steadily and provocatively across our land. Our Congress and president aid it at the highest levels. It is a nation-destroying experiment being forced on Americans that will prove more disastrous than 9/11.

Recently, I read a book, "Civil War II: The Coming Breakup of America" by Thomas W. Chittum. This book paints a grim picture of what is happening to our country. At first, I was incredulous at his supposition. But half way through the book, his research was SO profound and SO evident that it became a page-turner. It provided a sickening look into the methodology and process whereby my own country is being destroyed before my eyes.

A $200 back-to-school giveaway for needy kids sparked a mad rush for money on the streets of New York on Tuesday.

"It's free money!" said Alecia Rumph, 26, who waited in a Morris Park, Bronx, line 300 people deep for the cash to buy uniforms and book bags for her two kids.

"Thank God for Obama. He's looking out for us."

Thousands of people lined up at banks and check-cashing shops to withdraw the cash that magically appeared on their electronic benefit cards.


This is how thirdworlders reason, which is why such language is employed to explain to them how complex things happen. It's just "magic".

This is why the thirdworld is the thirdworld.

That "free money" was, of course, generated by hardworking White tax payers. The same people who keep society from collapsing into complete barbarism on a daily basis. The same people who design and build highways, bridges, electrical grids, water systems and hospitals; who promote courts of law and social standards; who develop ever new scientific systems for understanding the world and engineering marvels that make it function better; who provide most of the financial, ideological and physical infrastructure that keeps the non-White portions of the world functioning.
The "magic people" in other words.
The Gods, as it were.

"Fixing" History...

The publicity machine is now gearing up for documentarian Ken Burns’s twelve-hour extravaganza, The National Parks: America’s Best Idea, which will run for six straight nights on PBS starting September 27.

This being a Ken Burns series, the predominant theme of The National Parks will be “diversity.”


As more Burns documentaries piled up, it became clear that what he cares most about is telling stories about African Americans. This was acidly pointed out in the famous parody, The Old Negro Space Program:


Hence, Burns typically makes bloated documentaries about some subject expansive enough to give him an excuse to slip in the black stories that interests him. If the topic is right, such as Jazz, it works.

But … National Parks?

I’m sorry, but black people don’t like national parks. Less than one percent of visitors to Yosemite, for example, are black.


Thus, the online 25-minute preview video of Burns’ series gives off a whiff of self-parody, as if Burns is trying to top The Old Negro Space Program. His teaser is dominated by a black park ranger named Shelton Johnson. Mr. Johnson seems like a fine fellow, with a worthy cause of getting African Americans more interested in nature; but only in Ken Burns’s mind would he be a prime figure in the story of the national parks.


If the National Parks really are “America’s best idea,” the problem for Burns and his financial backers is that this best idea was invented by the worst sort of people. The founders of the conservation movement in the late 19th and early 20th Centuries were, overwhelmingly, white Protestant males. Moreover, many of the heroes of the preservation of the American landscape were active in the immigration restriction movement that triumphed in 1924. And, they often had other, even less respectable, enthusiasms, such as social Darwinism and eugenics.


the Sierra Club stood for immigration control until David Gelbaum donated $100 million in the mid-1990s on the condition of Club leaders not opposing immigration.


A major monetary supporter of Burns’ documentary is the Evelyn & Walter Haas Jr. Fund. (Haas was the great-grandnephew of Levi Strauss, who founded the San Francisco jeans company during the Gold Rush):

Under the leadership of Ira S. Hirschfeld, diversity is a very big deal to the Haas Jr. Fund. For example, the other frontpage story on the Fund’s website complains:

While many things have changed dramatically in the 40 years since Stonewall, one thing has not: the leadership of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) organizations has remained overwhelmingly white.


Dayton and Burns, however, intend to fix all that by fixing history...


You know what all those names (magnified in large and red) above have in common?

See here and here for more information.


White Lightning...


Americans are speaking up and confronting the President Obama and Democrat lawmakers with concerns about their health care "reform."

Citizens are flocking to town hall forums across the nation and letting their representatives know where they stand. Meetings are filled to capacity while thousands wait outside for their chance to be heard.


At Poplar Bluff, Mo., the report said, an audience of 500 applauded the loudest when Obama was called a socialist.


As WND reported, an irate Michigan father worried over what Obamacare would do to his handicapped adult son said he was threatened after trying to get a direct answer from Rep. John Dingell, D-Mich, on Aug 6. In an interview with Fox, Sola explained how he took his wheelchair-bound adult son to the front of the room to confront Dingell, 83.

In an MSNBC interview, Dingell later said the town hall protests remind him of Ku Klux Klan protests.

"It's a challenge, no question about it, and you've got to get out there and make the case," Sen. Christopher Dodd, D-Conn., said afterward. "This is not the time for the faint-hearted."


The left, the radical anti-White Marxists, have taken a gamble by going for broke over the past 8 months.

It is conceivable, though not guaranteed, that their gamble will result in the fall of liberaldom (aka Mordor) in America and the denouncement of it throughout the Western World.

The most striking thing about these protests and the related Tea Party protests is that the protesters are overwhelmingly White.
Their ideological opponents are a overwhelmingly non-White, being led by a black guy and his mostly jewish advisers and backed up by a black (Southrons) and hispanic (Easterlings) electorate.

The racial aspect of this divided country is obvious and explicit in its manifestations.

Many Whites mistakenly believed that how they prefer a ordered society and structured government was a universal quality.

Race is real. Race is not a social construct, societies are racial constructs.

If that isn't obvious to everyone now, it never will be. The goofy idea of the assimilation of non-Whites into America was preposterous from the get-go. After 400 years blacks have not assimilated. And neither will the Asians, hispanics, Indians or the rest.

America was created by, for and in the image of, Whites. No other people will accept her precepts or embrace her ideas of government, culture, religion and so on.

Europeans, and only Europeans can become American. It has always been thus and ever shall be.
If America continues down her present course demographically she will look much like any other thirdworld -violence filled, disease riddled and poverty stricken banana republic by centuries end. The demise of the White majority will mean the end of prosperity and order.

These are interesting days.
The left, kinda like Mordor, has amassed and aligned her forces believing their victory is at hand. They believe that the West is soon to be overrun and thrown down. That the (as the Orcs saw them) "filthy Whiteskins" are soon to be wiped out.
They are aided by the Wormtongues in the media (Beck, Hannity, O'Rielly, Limbaugh) who, essentially, council Whites to be passive and accept their opponents terms of surrender. They use the very same words of their master in the Dark Tower with accusations of "bigotry", "prejudice" and "racism" against any man or woman of The West who would stand to defend their homes and families against annihilation.

But the White Wizard is about the land, and the Men of Rohan and Gondor are gathering together.

"There is a change in the air."

"I was born for a storm and a calm does not suit me."

Race Matters, To Be Sure...

They’re not just like the Irish—or the Italians or the Poles, for that matter. The large influx of Hispanic immigrants after 1965 represents a unique assimilation challenge for the United States. Many optimistic observers have assumed—incorrectly, it turns out—that Hispanic immigrants will follow the same economic trajectory European immigrants did in the early part of the last century. Many of those Europeans came to America with no money and few skills, but their status steadily improved. Their children outperformed them, and their children’s children were often indistinguishable from the “founding stock.” The speed of economic assimilation varied somewhat by ethnic group, but three generations were typically enough to turn “ethnics” into plain old Americans.

{snip} “People used to say the Irish or the Poles would always be poor, but look at them today!” For Hispanics, we are led to believe, the same thing will happen.

But that claim isn’t true. Though about three-quarters of Hispanics living in the U.S. today are either immigrants or the children of immigrants, a significant number have roots here going back many generations. We have several ways to measure their intergenerational progress, and the results leave little room for optimism about their prospects for assimilation.


The children of Hispanic immigrants (the second generation) actually stay in school much longer and earn a considerably higher wage than their parents. In fact, the Hispanic rate of assimilation from the first to the second generation is only slightly lower than the assimilation rate of more successful groups of immigrants. Most second-generation Hispanics make up nearly as much ground as the children of European immigrants would if they grew up in the same disadvantaged situation.

But the good news ends there, and two problems arise. {snip} [Assimilation] appears to stall after the second generation. We see little further ladder-climbing from the grandchildren of Hispanic immigrants. They do not rise out of the lower class.

The most straightforward statistical evidence of this stall in Hispanic assimilation comes from the Current Population Survey (CPS), which asks respondents their ethnicity, where they were born, and where their parents were born. From this information we can construct an account of the first generation (foreign-born), the second generation (born in the U.S. with at least one foreign-born parent), and the “3+” generations (born in the U.S. to two U.S.-born parents) among the Hispanic respondents.

This chart shows how Hispanic Americans compare with white natives generation by generation. The annual earnings of second-generation Hispanic men are substantially higher than those of the first generation. However, the 3+ generations have about the same earnings as the second, still well below white natives. No generational progress beyond the second generation is evident.

The educational picture does not look much better. The children of Hispanic immigrants are much better educated than their parents. However, American-born Hispanics still have high dropout and low college-completion rates compared with white natives, and there is little improvement from the second to the 3+ generations. Again, progress stalls.
