One Year Ago...

(originally posted on October 30 2008)



Here is an interesting critique.

It's amazing how, every four years, politicians come out and repeat the same promises they made four years earlier (and never kept) and a certain percentage of the population get all whipped up into a feeding frenzy over the "new era" to come.

Every four years this happens.

This election is no different in this regard.

The only thing worth noting this time is that the candidates are both further to the left than any Presidential candidates have ever been. But they're only slightly to the left of Bush and Kerry in 2004, who were slightly left of Bush and Gore in 2000, who were slightly left of Clinton and Dole in 1996 and so on and so forth.
This is the natural progression of continually voting for "the lesser of two evils".

Both candidates this year, as in years past, represent two doors that lead to the same hell. They're both essentially Corporate Socialists who only differ on how they believe Corporate Socialistic programs should be implemented.

Of course, this election is different in one crucial way though. Race!
Naturally the left is playing the race card, garnering around 99% of the black vote.
Yet the Republicans have done no less in their grand scheme to flood the nation with 35 million Mexicans, believing that if they were encouraged to maintain their language, given no-fault mortgages and Amnesty, that they would instantly mutate into "conservatives".

But despite the GOP's ongoing protocol of kicking White America in the collective nuts, the Republican party, never-the-less, remains the default political party of White Americans. (the portion of White guilt-induced lemmings not withstanding) This is why Uncle Jauns' campaign went with Sarah 'All American -moose hunting-gal next door' Palin as VP. It was a direct and overt courting of White voters. Hence the Left's unhinged attacks upon the femitician.

And it's been interesting seeing how Whites react to this new found reality wherein, despite all of their best efforts to deny it to the contrary, Race matters.

I've seen it in the way Evangelical and Catholic Christians bring up abortion (and "black genocide" by inference, directly or not) as a way to appeal to black voters to reject the pro-abortion 'Man With No Middle Name'.

But then there are those intrepid few who are still strolling through a balkanized, ghettoized and crumbling post-American America and still seeing Mayberry RFD everywhere they look.

You know the types. They go on and on about The New World Order, or The War on Terror or re-surging Russia or emerging China.....Armageddon, WWIII, Economic Meltdown, Pandemics, Epidemics etc, etc...anything but what is actually happening in America in terms of demographic race replacement and the cultural move to the far left.
And these are the same people who went hook, line and sinker for the whole Y2K thing!

And why?

Because fictional bogymen and convoluted conspiracies are a heck of a lot more fun (and easy) to cope with than the actual hellish ruin that is ensconcing real world Western Civilization.

And a great many of these people are going to be gravely disappointed when they find that, if for example, the economy does crash, life keeps going right on along, the economy gets rebuilt and things trudge along as they always did.
The same goes for World Wars, Epidemics and a whole host of other calamities that have, time after time, struck kingdoms, nations and empires.
"There is nothing new under the sun."

Could things "get bad" in the immediate future?
Sure.
Then they'll get good again, then bad again, then good again and so on....relatively speaking.

But then again, things have been getting gradually bad for 60+ years, occasionally seasoned with a few "good" things.

The point is, those expecting some "event" to come along and stop the world from turning, are in for a big let down.

Our situation today is like being in a slowly sinking boat.
The first steps for White America is to except the fact that,
1. The Ship is being flooded and is in fact sinking.
2. There are a pesky few rascals going around drilling holes in the ship.
3. The only solution is to stop the rascals, bail out the water and plug up the holes.


Will future events precipitate the above steps?

Yes.

But as with all history, it is likely to be an occasion whose beginning may not be recognized by those who lived it and whose conclusion will likely be decades, if not centuries, removed from its genesis.


Most of the truly great Historical Moments are only noted as such, long after they have occurred.



Many potentially great men have gone mad and gray haired, hauled up in a compound or cave somewhere, waiting for the sky to fall.
While many others expectantly (and sadly, excitedly) wait upon a doomsday (that will never arrive) for the opportunity to run up to the rest of us and say, "I told you so!"

From these types it would be well advised to flee.
They will either turn on you when the going gets rough, or abandon you when needed most.

Ally yourself with only those who can, rationally, place events in greater contexts and except reality for what it is, rather than what they wish it to be.


The End is not nigh...

A Social Construct?...

New Black Barbie With Realistic African Features

Grace, Kara and Trichelle
have fuller lips, wider noses and more pronounced cheek bones than their forebear, Christie, Barbie's first black friend who was introduced in 1968 and was essentially a white doll painted brown.

...

Attempts to kit the dolls out in hip hop-style "bling" such as huge necklaces and earrings, fancy trainers and at least one ghetto blaster met with accusations that they were reinforcing negative racial stereotypes.

Big Brother says, "make black barbies realistic to match physical racial characteristics of blacks."

Big Brother says, "race doesn't exist."

Social Engineering....

If we had it to do over, would we send an army into Afghanistan to build a nation?

Would we invade Iraq?

While these two wars have cost 5,200 dead, a trillion dollars and a divided America facing an endless war, what have we won?

Gen. Stanley McChrystal needs 40,000 to 80,000 more troops, or we risk "mission failure" in Afghanistan. At present casualty rates – October was the worst month of the war – thousands more Americans will die before we see any light at the end of this tunnel, if ever we do.

Pakistan, which aided us in Afghanistan, now has a war of its own to fight. Its army is in a battle in South Waziristan, while the country is wracked by terror bombings, the latest in a Peshawar bazaar that specialized in women's clothing and jewelry and toys for kids. So horrific was the toll even the Taliban and al-Qaida denied any role in it.

The 130,000 U.S. troops in Iraq are, after almost seven years, to begin pulling out two months after January's election. But a hitch has developed. Iraq's parliament missed the deadline for setting the rules. At issue: Will voters be allowed to choose individual candidates, or will they be allowed only to vote for slates of candidates?

Gen. Ray Odierno implies that postponement of the election may mean postponement of U.S. withdrawals.

Ominously, in August, terrorists bombed the foreign and finance ministries in Baghdad, and last week blew up the Justice Ministry and Baghdad Provincial Governorate. And the Kurds are now claiming their control of oil-rich Kirkuk is non-negotiable, which crosses a red line in Baghdad.

Next door, a terror attack by Jundallah (God's Brigade) in Iran's southern province of Sistan-Baluchistan killed 40, including two senior commanders of the Revolutionary Guard.

An enraged Tehran pointed the finger at the United States, as there have been charges the CIA has been in contact with Jundallah as part of President Bush's destabilization program to effect "regime change."

Well, if a society comes to the conclusion that there is, "one race, the human race", then it naturally follows that morals, ideals, social systems and so on are inherently unanimous in their potential to be molded into a singular form across the globe. Conformity to a singular standard is then inevitable. The invasion, occupations and re-engineering of other nations to fit that universal standard are then justified in their supposed ubiquitous self evidencey.


As has been stated elsewhere, Liberalism -the belief in equality- is a war with reality.

Nick Griffin's Day Off...

'One in five voters now considering BNP'

Taken in the hours after the show, the YouGov poll for The Daily Telegraph found 22% of voters would seriously consider voting BNP in a local, general or European election.

A BBC spokesman said: "We have been very clear in setting out our reasons for having Nick Griffin on Question Time.

"The BBC's obligation is around due impartiality. It is not our job to comment on the ebb and flow of opinion polls."

The British Establishment's response to its only real opposition is as comical as it is bizarre. Their overbearing aggressiveness shown towards the one political party that represents actual British people has shown them for the bureaucratic pricks that they are.

I'm reminded of a scene in the movie Ferris Bueller's Day Off wherein the principle, Ed Rooney, lays out a line of bureaucratic BS in his attempt to describe the young Bueller's effect on the school and his authority over it, only to have his BS broken down into plain English by the secretary, Grace.

Ed Rooney: "He jeopardizes my ability to effectively govern this student body."

Grace: "He makes you look like an ass, is what he does Ed."

Sow To The Wind...

With his greeting of 'Evenin' all', Dixon of Dock Green embodied the values of the solid, commonsense copper.

But his reassuring salutation, which began each episode of the classic police TV drama from 1955 to 1976, is one which today's real-life officers should be wary of using.

According to one force's official guidelines, it could confuse people from different cultural backgrounds.

Warwickshire Police's handbook Policing Our Communities, issued to every member of its staff, gives advice on communicating with people from different ethnic groups in a section entitled Communication, Some Dos & Don’ts.

It states: 'Don't assume those words for the time of day, such as afternoon or evening, have the same meaning.'

A force spokesman explained: 'Terms such as afternoon and evening are somewhat subjective in meaning and can vary according to a person's culture or nationality. In many cultures the term evening is linked to time of day when people have their main meal of the day.

The Devices Of Mordor....

Since Marxist revolution was so obviously desirable to the Frankfurt Intellectuals, they developed a theory in which the failure of revolution could be attributed to psychopathology in the family. As reviewed here, the epitome of psychological health was the “genuine liberal” — a radical individualist who is completely detached from all ingroups, including race and family. White people who rejected their family as role models were analyzed as psychologically healthy, while those who had positive views of their parents were analyzed as psychologically inadequate.

Such a view is obviously subversive of traditional values, since competent parents transmit their religious and cultural values to their children, and at the time of the study, many of these competent White parents had a sense of White racial identity which they were transmitting to their children. The Frankfurt School was essentially claiming that White families who successfully transmitted their ethnocentric attitudes to their children were pathological — a view for which there isn’t a shred of evidence. (Needless to say, the successful transmission of Jewish identity to Jewish children was not considered a pathology.)

A major part of the intellectual ammunition for this assault on the people and culture of the West derived originally from Erich Fromm whose association with the Frankfurt School dates from 1930. Fromm pioneered the idea of combining Marx with Freud and was responsible for the early development of the authoritarian personality concept. Fromm’s ideas are an excellent illustration of the ludicrous but deadly theories that resulted from this marriage of these two influential Jewish philosophers. For example, in Studien ├╝ber Authorit├Ąt und Familie (1936), Fromm wrote,

With regard to authoritarianism, masochism manifested itself in the surrender to authority, and sadism was evident in the acceptance of social hierarchy. In the developmental and sexual sense, the authoritarian character had suffered a regression from genital sexuality to infantile sexuality. Accompanying this regression of libidinal energy, Fromm also expected a shift from heterosexual to homosexual behavior among authoritarian personalities. (quoted in Wheatland, p. 68)

As a psychologist, I really can’t imagine a more ridiculous theory — unless perhaps one counts Freud’s politically useful Oedipal complex. None of these ideas ever had even a glimmer of empirical support. Freud’s theorizing — one hesitates to call it a theory — combines outrageousness with infinite plasticity. In the hands of Freudian revisionist like Fromm, it could be used as a weapon against those who resist a communist revolution. Eventually, Fromm’s ideas would be the basis for The Authoritarian Personality and its assault on White racial identity and traditional Western family values.

For far too long traditional Westerners have been fighting the wrong battle of a great war. Mordor (aka, The Left) was never dumb enough to openly launch direct attacks while The West was, yet, still strong. No, it simply inverted the expected struggle so as to outmaneuver its victim. The West has been busy fortifying positions Mordor never attacked or intended to attack.

For example,

Mordor didn't attack Christianity to undermine Western Civilization. It attacked Western Civilization to undermine Christianity.

Likewise, it did not attack the family to undermine nationalism, it attacked nationalism with the end result of undermining the family. (for what is a nation if not an extended, biological, family)

Always Mordor inverts the attack so that Western Man is fighting a reverse image phantom of the battle instead of the battle itself.


And in accordance to the spirit of the age, so many insidious voices are raised in The West now with endless accusations of European Man's past "sins".

In that, they play the part of The Enemy,

"And there was war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him. Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say:
"Now have come the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God,
and the authority of his Christ.
For the accuser of our brothers,
who accuses them before our God day and night,
has been hurled down."
-Revelation 12: 7-10

The Sin Of Kinship?...

The following parody of modern neo-Babylonian Christianity will no doubt be reality in a few short years if things remain unchanged...

Fight Familism

by Rev. Jack O’Kobian

Modern Christians have made great strides against racism. But much more needs to be done if we are to be true servants of Equality.

Now we must confront a form of racism that most people don’t even recognize as such. This is the sin of familism, the preference for one’s children over other children. Admittedly this seems natural, but in the fallen world most sins seem natural. Only as we follow the spiritual truth of Equality can we rise above this sinful material world.

Do you doubt that familism is racism? Consider how racists often justify their hate by saying that it’s really no different from preferring one’s child. And consider how familists often use such terms as “my flesh and blood.” The similarity to the Nazi’s “blood and soil” is obvious. Only a bigot would disagree.

In the words of no less than Martin Luther King, the only basis for judging another human being is the “content of character.” Thus if a “father” prefers his “son” to another child who is morally superior to that “son,” he is clearly a bigot because he values flesh more than morality. Such a “father” clearly views his “family”—physical traits, genes and all—as a miniature Master Race.

While it is true that the Old Testament affirms family lineage and says “honor thy father and thy mother,” the law of the Old Testament no longer applies because now, under the New Testament, we are under grace instead of law. Jesus said, “call no man your father.” Grace is spirit and abolishes physical distinctions.

Throughout history we can see the evil caused by familism, wars of dynasty, family feuds, jealousy, and favoritism. Blood ties lead to bloodshed. It is the shame of the Church that Marxists have long understood the evils of familism better than Christians and have worked to attack this and other sins against Equality. Indeed, it was the Marxist Leon Trotsky who invented the term “racism.”

To fight familism, the Church must set the long-range goal of raising all children in common. In the words of Hillary Clinton, “It takes a village to raise a child.” As a preliminary step to that goal, Christian parents should make a practice of swapping their newborns with other “families.”

Some “mothers,” of course, will object, and they will play on the sentiments of a mother holding her infant child. Nevertheless, we must cut through this sentiment and understand the sin that motivates it. The extent to which a “mother” focuses on her child is the extent to which she tunes out other children—and that is hate.

Although abortion is a bad thing, it may be serving what is ultimately a good purpose. When a woman has the child in her womb killed, it desensitizes her to warmth and favoritism toward children of her own, and thereby opens her heart to impartial feeling toward all children. Gay marriage also may have a beneficial side by undercutting the prestige of familism.

We should never fail to denounce familism whenever we encounter it, even in tough cases. For example, if a couple has just lost its child in an accident, the moral response is to withhold sympathy for their grief. Tell the couple to “get over it” because there are plenty of living children around for them to love, many with a “content of character” superior to that of “their” deceased child.

Admittedly, the path to True Equality will not be easy, but it is the only way we can purge the sin of earth with the spirit of heaven. One day this love will trample out the vineyards of hate.

The New America...

KINSTON, N.C. | Voters in this small city decided overwhelmingly last year to do away with the party affiliation of candidates in local elections, but the Obama administration recently overruled the electorate and decided that equal rights for black voters cannot be achieved without the Democratic Party.

The Justice Department's ruling, which affects races for City Council and mayor, went so far as to say partisan elections are needed so that black voters can elect their "candidates of choice" - identified by the department as those who are Democrats and almost exclusively black.

...


Justice Department spokesman Alejandro Miyar denied that the decision was intended to help the Democratic Party. He said the ruling was based on "what the facts are in a particular jurisdiction" and how it affects blacks' ability to elect the candidates they favor.

...

Ms. King wrote that voters in Kinston vote more along racial than party lines and without the potential for voting a straight Democratic ticket, "the limited remaining support from white voters for a black Democratic candidate will diminish even more."

Ms. King is the same official who put a stop to the New Black Panther Party case. In that case, the Justice Department filed a civil complaint in Philadelphia after two members of the black revolutionary group dressed in quasi-military garb stood outside a polling place on election last year and purportedly intimidated voters with racial insults, slurs and a nightstick.

What Diversity Means...

Warning For America
From South Africa

By Gemma Meyer (Gemma Meyer is the pseudonym of a South African journalist. She and her husband, a former conservative member of parliament, still reside in South Africa.)



People used to say that South Africa was 20 years behind the rest of the Western world. Television, for example, came late to South Africa (but so did pornography and the gay rights movement).

Today, however, South Africa may be the grim model of the future Western world, for events in America reveal trends chillingly similar to those that destroyed our country.

America's structures are Western. Your Congress, your lobbying groups, your free speech, and the way ordinary Americans either get involved or ignore politics are peculiarly Western, not the way most of the world operates. But the fact that only about a third of Americans deem it important to vote is horrifying in light of how close you are to losing your Western character.

Writing letters to the press, manning stands at county fairs, hosting fund-raising dinners, attending rallies, setting up conferences, writing your Congressman - that is what you know, and what you are comfortable with. Those are the political methods you've created for yourselves to keep your country on track and to ensure political accountability.

But woe to you if - or more likely, when - the rules change. White Americans may soon find themselves unable or unwilling to stand up to challenge the new political methods that will be the inevitable result of the ethnic metamorphosis now taking place in America. Unable to cope with the new rules of the game - violence, mob riots, intimidation through accusations of racism, demands for proportionality based on racial numbers, and all the other social and political weapons used by the have-nots to bludgeon treasure and power from the haves - Americans, like others before them, will no doubt cave in. They will compromise away their independence and ultimately their way of life.

That is exactly what happened in South Africa. I know, because I was there and I saw it happen.

Faced with revolution in the streets, strikes, civil unrest and the sheer terror and murder practiced by Nelson Mandela's African National Congress (ANC), the white government simply capitulated in order to achieve "peace."

Westerners need peace. They need order and stability. They are builders and planners. But what we got was the peace of the grave for our society.

The Third World is different - different peoples with different pasts and different cultures. Yet Westerners continue to mistake the psychology of the Third World and its peoples. Sierra Leone and Zimbabwe are perfect examples of those mistakes. Sierra Leone is in perpetual civil war, and Zimbabwe - once the thriving, stable Rhodesia - is looting the very people (the white men) who feed the country. Yet Westerners do not admit that the same kind of savagery could come to America when enough immigrants of the right type assert themselves. The fact is, Americans are sitting ducks for Third World exploitation of the Western conscience of compassion.

Those in the West who forced South Africa to surrender to the ANC and its leaders did not consider Africa to be the dangerous, corrupt, and savage place it is now in Zimbabwe and South Africa. Those Western politicians now have a similar problem looming on their own doorsteps: the demand for power and treasure from the non-Western peoples inside the realm.

It is already too late for South Africa, but not for America if enough people strengthen their spine and take on the race terrorists, the armies of the "politically correct" and, most dangerous of all, the craven politicians who believe "compassionate conservatism" will buy them a few more votes, a few more days of peace.

White South Africans, you should remember, have been in that part of Africa for the same amount of time whites have inhabited North America; yet ultimately South Africans voted for their own suicide. We are not so very different from you.

We lost our country through skillful propaganda, pressure from abroad (not least from the U.S.A.), unrelenting charges of "oppression" and "racism," and the shrewd assessment by African tyrants that the white man has many Achilles' heels, the most significant of which are his compassion, his belief in the "equality of man," and his "love your neighbor" philosophy - none of which are part of the Third World's history.

The mainline churches played a big role in the demise of Western influence throughout Africa, too; especially in South Africa. Today's tyrants were yesterday's mission-school proteges. Many dictators in Africa were men of the cloth. They knew their clerical collars would deflect criticism and obfuscate their real aims, which had nothing whatever to do with the "brotherhood of man."

Other tyrants, like the infamous Idi Amin, were trained and schooled by the whites themselves, at Oxford, Cambridge, and Harvard. After receiving the best from the West, they unleashed a resentful bloodlust against their benefactors.

From what I have seen and read thus far, I fear Americans will capitulate just as we did. Americans are, generally, a soft lot. They don't want to quarrel or obstruct the claims of those who believe they were wronged. They like peace and quiet, and they want to compromise and be nice.

A television program that aired in South Africa showed a town meeting somewhere in Southern California where people met to complain about falling standards in the schools. Whites who politely spoke at the meeting clearly resented the influx of Mexican immigrants into their community. When a handful of Chicanos at the back of the hall shouted and waved their hands at them, the whites simply shrunk back into their seats rather than tell the noisemakers to shut up. They didn't want to quarrel.

In America, the courts are still the final arbiters of society's laws. But what will happen when your future majority refuses to abide by court rulings - as in Zimbabwe. What will happen when the new majority says the judges are racists, and that they refuse to acknowledge "white man's justice"? What will happen when the courts are filled with their people, or their sympathizers? In California, Proposition 187 has already been overturned.

What will you do when the future non-white majority decides to change the names of streets and cities? What will you do when they no longer want to use money that carries the portraits of old, dead white "racists" and slave owners? Will you cave in, like you did on flying the Confederate flag? What about the national anthem? Your official language?

Don't laugh. When the "majority" took over in South Africa, the first targets were our national symbols.

In another generation, America may well face what Africa is now experiencing - invasions of private land by the "have-nots;" the decline in health care quality; roads and buildings in disrepair; the banishment of your history from the education of the young; the revolutionization of your justice system.

In South Africa today, only 9 percent of murderers end up in jail. Court dockets are regularly purchased and simply disappear. Magistrates can be bribed as can the prison authorities, making escapes commonplace. Vehicle and airplane licenses are regularly purchased, and forged school and university certificates are routine.

What would you think of the ritual slaughter of animals in your neighbor's backyard? How do you clean up the blood and entrails that litter your suburban streets? How do you feel about the practice of witchcraft, in which the parts of young girls and boys are needed for "medicinal" purposes? How do you react to the burning of witches?

Don't laugh. All that is quite common in South Africa today.

Don't imagine that government officials caught with their fingers in the till will be punished. Excuses - like the need to overcome generations of white racism - will be found to exonerate the guilty.

In fact, known criminals will be voted into office because of a racial solidarity among the majority that doesn't exist among the whites. When Ian Smith of the old Rhodesia tried to stand up to the world, white South African politicians were among the Westerners pressuring him to surrender.

When Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe murders his political opponents, ignores unfavorable court decisions, terrorizes the population and siphons off millions from the state treasury for himself and his friends, South Africa's new President Thabo Mbeki holds his hand and declares his support. That just happened a few weeks ago.

Your tax dollars will go to those who don't earn and don't pay. In South Africa, organizations that used to have access to state funds such as old age homes, the arts, and veterans' services, are simply abandoned.

What will happen is that Western structures in America will be either destroyed from without, or transformed from within, used to suit the goals of the new rulers. And they will reign either through terror, as in Zimbabwe today, or exert other corrupt pressures to obtain, or buy votes. Once power is in the hands of aliens, don't expect loyalty or devotion to principle from those whose jobs are at stake. One of the most surprising and tragic components of the disaster in South Africa is how many previously anti-ANC whites simply moved to the other side.

Once you lose social, cultural, and political dominance, there is no getting it back again.

Unfortunately, your habits and values work against you. You cannot fight terror and street mobs with letters to your Congressmen. You cannot fight accusations of racism with prayer meetings. You cannot appeal to the goodness of your fellow man when the fellow man despises you for your weaknesses and hacks off the arms and legs of his political opponents.

To survive, Americans must never lose the power they now enjoy to people from alien cultures. Above all, don't put yourselves to the test of fighting only when your backs are against the wall. You will probably fail.

Millions around the world want your good life. But make no mistake: They care not for the high-minded ideals of Thomas Jefferson and George Washington, and your Constitution. What they want are your posessions, your power, and your status.

And they already know that their allies among you, the "human rights activists," the skillful lawyers and the left-wing politicians will fight for them, and not for you. They will exploit your compassion and your Christian charity, and your good will.

They have studied you, Mr. and Mrs. America, and they know your weaknesses well.

They know what to do.

Do you?

Allegiance To The Abstract of Valueless Nothingness...

In the brief age of Obama, we have had "truthers," "birthers," Tea Party activists and town-hall dissenters.

Comes now, the "Oath Keepers." And who might they be?

Writes Alan Maimon in the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Oath Keepers, depending on where one stands, are "either strident defenders of liberty or dangerous peddlers of paranoia."[ READY TO REVOLT: Oath Keepers pledges to prevent dictatorship in United States, October 18, 2009]

Formed in March, they are ex-military and police who repledge themselves to defend the Constitution, even if it means disobeying orders. If the U.S. government ordered law enforcement agencies to violate Second Amendment rights by disarming the people, Oath Keepers will not obey.

"The whole point of Oath Keepers is to stop a dictatorship from ever happening here," says founding father Stewart Rhodes, an ex-Army paratrooper and Yale-trained lawyer. "My focus is on the guys with the guns, because they can't do it without them.

"We say if the American people decide it's time for a revolution, we'll fight with you."

-source

From the Oath Keepers site,

"Oath Keepers is a non-partisan association of currently serving military, reserves, National Guard, veterans, Peace Officers, and Fire Fighters who will fulfill the Oath we swore, with the support of like minded citizens who take an Oath to stand with us, to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, so help us God. Our Oath is to the Constitution."




So their oath is to a legal document written in support of a proposition nation; an experiment. And when the Constitution is amended?


Their oath is not to their people, their posterity, their ancestors, their God or any such traditional foundations upon which societies were forged and endured.


In other words it's just another organization meant to allow people to "vent" but not actually do anything. They're not saying to the school bully, "cross this line and it's war", they're saying, "Invalidate the legal procedure set down in article 4, section five, of the most recently democratically agreed upon playground amendments and.....well,........well, don't count on my support mister!"

"Oath keepers" is just another manifestation of American Exceptionalism. Their oath is to an abstract business construct. And how many people will (knowingly) fight and die for a business construct?

If these folks want to pledge to something, let it be that which countless generations have fought and died for. And that is Blood and Soil.

Of course the problem is that there aren't many left with the backbone to buck the PC dogma of equality and declare openly that they fight for their race and the land upon which that race forged a home.
We have slid so far to the left in the past half century that even the right is left now.

The American way of life is not dependent upon the Constitution, it is dependent upon the White race. THAT IS THE REALITY!
As the White race has diminished in percentage, America's prosperity, freedom, rule of law and way of life have have diminished with them. And that is because race is not a social construct but societies are racial constructs.
It is no coincidence that as the numbers of blacks and hispanics increase in America, America increasingly looks like a cross between Bolivia and Somalia.

Oath Keeps pledge their loyalty to abstract ideology. Marxists do the same.

The rest of us, though few in numbers we be, will continue to pledge our loyalty to that which our ancestors pledged theirs, Blood and Soil.

How Many Nations?...

LONDON - The backers of a $5 million prize celebrating good governance in Africa said Monday they cannot find anyone to award this year.

The Ibrahim Prize for Achievement in African Leadership brings the winner $5 million over 10 years and $200,000 annually for life thereafter.

The prize-giving committee could not select a winner after considering "some credible candidates," said former Botswana President Ketumile Masire, a board member of the Mo Ibrahim Foundation.

There are dozens of nations and hundreds of millions of people in Africa. Yet it remains in a state of arrested development.

For those who would attempt to blame Africa's sad state on colonialism, it would pay to keep in mind that Africa was dramatically lacking in civilization BEFORE colonialism began.

It's also worth keeping in mind that Europeans only set up ports along the coasts. The interior of the continent (the 2nd largest on Earth) was not colonized and has many areas to this day upon which no European foot has set. At best Europeans probably directly controlled 5 t0 10% of Africa, leaving about 90% of Africa free from Western influence (or arguably, hindrance).

The greatest blow to the argument that colonialism is to blame for Africa's stagnation is the fact that so many other places came under European rule as well. North America, South America, the Middle-East, India and Asia all saw European colonization, yet there is a world of difference between Hong Kong and Chad.

Add to that the fact that areas once ruled by Whites but are now in the hands of "black rule" are deteriorating at a rapid level, and it becomes clear to all but the most Orwellian obtuse, that race is always a factor in the fortunes of a nation, be they good or ill.



DETROIT (CNNMoney.com) -- At 1300 E. Warren St., you can smell the plight of Detroit.

Inside the Wayne County morgue in midtown Detroit, 67 bodies are piled up, unclaimed, in the freezing temperatures. Neither the families nor the county can afford to bury the corpses. So they stack up inside the freezer.

Albert Samuels, chief investigator for the morgue, said he has never seen anything like it during his 13 years on the job. "Some people don't come forward even though they know the people are here," said the former Detroit cop. "They don't have the money."

Detroit is less than 10% White (as in people of European descent).



Races in Detroit:

  • Black (81.6%)
  • White Non-Hispanic (10.5%)
  • Hispanic (5.0%)
  • Other race (2.5%)
  • Two or more races (2.3%)
  • American Indian (0.9%)

The situation is nothing new.

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


And for those who, due to their programming, declare that to be "stereotyping", it would be well to remember that another stereotyoing is just another way of saying, pattern recognition.

On a side street in an old industrial neighborhood, a delivery man stacks a dolly of goods outside a store. Ten feet away stands another man clad in military fatigues, combat boots and what appears to be a flak jacket. He looks straight out of Baghdad. But this isn't Iraq. It's southeast Detroit, and he's there to guard the groceries.

"No pictures, put the camera down," he yells. My companion and I, on a tour of how people in this city are using urban farms to grow their own food, speed off.

In this recession-racked town, the lack of food is a serious problem. It's a theme that comes up again and again in conversations in Detroit. There isn't a single major chain supermarket in the city...

Crime Rates

  • Blacks are seven times more likely than people of other races to commit murder, and eight times more likely to commit robbery.
  • When blacks commit crimes of violence, they are nearly three times more likely than non-blacks to use a gun, and more than twice as likely to use a knife.
  • Hispanics commit violent crimes at roughly three times the white rate, and Asians commit violent crimes at about one quarter the white rate.
  • The single best indicator of violent crime levels in an area is the percentage of the population that is black and Hispanic.

Interracial Crime

  • Of the nearly 770,000 violent interracial crimes committed every year involving blacks and whites, blacks commit 85 percent and whites commit 15 percent.
  • Blacks commit more violent crime against whites than against blacks. Forty-five percent of their victims are white, 43 percent are black, and 10 percent are Hispanic. When whites commit violent crime, only three percent of their victims are black.
  • Blacks are an estimated 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against a white than vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit robbery.
  • Blacks are 2.25 times more likely to commit officially-designated hate crimes against whites than vice versa.

Gangs

  • Only 10 percent of youth gang members are white.
  • Hispanics are 19 times more likely than whites to be members of youth gangs. Blacks are 15 times more likely, and Asians are nine times more likely.

Incarceration

  • Between 1980 and 2003 the US incarceration rate more than tripled, from 139 to 482 per 100,000, and the number of prisoners increased from 320,000 to 1.39 million.
  • Blacks are seven times more likely to be in prison than whites. Hispanics are three times more likely.

The table does not gives statistics for Hispanic victims and offenders. But the bottom line on interracial white/black and black/white rape is clear:

In the United States in 2005, 37,460 white females were sexually assaulted or raped by a black man, while between zero and ten black females were sexually assaulted or raped by a white man.

What this means is that every day in the United States, over one hundred white women are raped or sexually assaulted by a black man.

A defiant Robert Mugabe has sailed unchallenged through the first test
of his presidency by his peers.


Western leaders from France, the United States and Canada joined
Britain in ratcheting up pressure on the organisation to reject Mr Mugabe’s
authority.


Freshly sworn in after a single candidate election, he received a
leader’s welcome when he strode into the African Union summit in Sharm el-Sheikh
yesterday and emerged unfazed, his authority intact.
He dined at a lavish
luncheon given by his Egyptian hosts, hugged heads of state and other diplomats
in the corridors and stayed at the Peninsula Hotel, one of the most luxurious in
this Red Sea town. “Mr Mugabe is staying there as a courtesy by the Egyptian
Government,” a hotel spokesman said. Delegates from the opposition Movement for
Democratic Change (MDC) lodged at the Sheraton, while their leader, Morgan
Tsvangirai, remained in Zimbabwe.
The African Union’s public response to Mr
Mugabe’s seizure of power was seen as a key measure of the organisation’s
commitment to democracy after Zimbabwe’s violent run-off elections.

Africa at war: The genocide spilling from the Darfur region of Sudan into
neighboring Chad has captured attention in the United States mainly because of
(belated) media coverage and an aggressive advocacy campaign by concerned
groups, but the prospects of Washington dealing with the problem seem slim.
Darfur, however, is only one of a pox of conflicts that, together with HIV/AIDS,
are depopulating parts of Africa and robbing it of potential wealth from
mineral, oil and gas deposits. Wars have also raged in Chad, Congo, Liberia,
Sierra Leone and Somalia. Were it not for the Iraq war, Washington may have
acted to stop what the Bush administration admits is genocide in Darfur, or
taken steps to prevent the chaos sweeping Somalia after a group affiliated with
al-Qaeda took over the country and left Ethiopia no choice but to invade in
hopes of preventing a more disastrous war. Unfortunately, even designating a
small presence of U.S. Special Forces to lead a U.N.-approved peacekeeping force
in Darfur appears beyond the capability of the badly stretched American
military.-

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
Zulu populist with some 20 children by various wives and mistresses, hoped to
prove that last year's rape case, and the trial he faces this year for
corruption and other charges...-

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

Formerly White ruled Congo, now ruled by blacks,
Le Blanc and I are into our 500th kilometer on the river when he turns my
view of modern African history on its head. "We should just give it all back to
the whites," the riverboat captain says. "Even if you go 1,000 kilometers down
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
the total loss of life between 1998 and April 2007 at 5.4 million. For many
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
country by force," he says, with more than a touch of admiration. "If they came
back, this time we'd give them the country for free."-

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.-

Our Fake Real World...

Sony Pictures set up a website for an organisation called the Institute for Human Continuity which predicts a cataclysmic denouement for Earth three years from now.

It suggests that "after two decades of rigorous research from the world's top astronomers, mathematicians, geologists, physicists, engineers, futurists, we know that in 2012 a series of cataclysmic forces will wreak havoc on our planet".


But the site has been so successful that hundreds of people have been convinced that something terrible is about to befall the planet.

Dr David Morrison, a senior scientist at Nasa's Astrobiology Institute, said he had received more than 1,000 inquiries from worried members of the public.

Re-Up (The Immeasurable Value Of Kindred)...

The Stranger within my gate,
He may be true or kind,
But he does not talk my talk --
I cannot feel his mind.
I see the face and the eyes and the mouth,
But not the soul behind.

The men of my own stock
They may do ill or well,
But they tell the lies I am wonted to.
They are used to the lies I tell,
And we do not need interpreters
When we go to buy and sell.

The Stranger within my gates,
He may be evil or good,
But I cannot tell what powers control
What reasons sway his mood;
Nor when the Gods of his far-off land
Shall repossess his blood.

The men of my own stock,
Bitter bad they may be,
But, at least, they hear the things I hear,
And see the things I see;
And whatever I think of them and their likes
They think of the likes of me.

This was my father's belief
And this is also mine:
Let the corn be all one sheaf --
And the grapes be all one vine,
Ere our children's teeth are set on edge
By bitter bread and wine.

Rib Or Spine...

NEW ORLEANS – A Louisiana justice of the peace said he refused to issue a marriage license to an interracial couple out of concern for any children the couple might have. Keith Bardwell, justice of the peace in Tangipahoa Parish, says it is his experience that most interracial marriages do not last long.

What’s shocking is the absolute silence from the “family values” crowd, who should be all over the media demanding that Bardwell be allowed to follow his moral beliefs, because nobody should have to choose between their job and their conscience. After all, isn’t that what they want for people who oppose gay marriage? They keep raising the specter of court clerks being fired if they refuse to issue a marriage license to two men if gay marriage is legal, or a judge being removed from office for refusing to perform a same sex ceremony. They tell us that this would be a terrible tragedy, and a real blow to religious freedom in America.

So why isn’t Keith Bardwell entitled to the same protections for his moral beliefs?

I wouldn't count on modern American Christians to stand up for, well, anything.

It seems God took not only a rib from them, but their spine as well.

The State Of Things...

"But there is one thing that is infinitely more absurd and unpractical than burning a man for his philosophy. This is the habit of saying that his philosophy does not matter, and this is done universally in the twentieth century, in the decadence of the great revolutionary period.

...

Revolution itself is too much of a system; liberty itself is too much of a restraint. We will have no generalizations. Mr. Bernard Shaw has put the view in a perfect epigram: "The golden rule is that there is no golden rule." We are more and more to discuss details in art, politics, literature. A man's opinion on tramcars matters; his opinion on Botticelli matters; his opinion on all things does not matter. He may turn over and explore a million objects, but he must not find that strange object, the universe; for if he does he will have a religion, and be lost. Everything matters--except everything.

...

But there are some people, nevertheless--and I am one of them-- who think that the most practical and important thing about a man is still his view of the universe. We think that for a landlady considering a lodger, it is important to know his income, but still more important to know his philosophy. We think that for a general about to fight an enemy, it is important to know the enemy's numbers, but still more important to know the enemy's philosophy.

...

Now, in our time, philosophy or religion, our theory, that is, about ultimate things, has been driven out, more or less simultaneously, from two fields which it used to occupy. General ideals used to dominate literature. They have been driven out by the cry of "art for art's sake." General ideals used to dominate politics. They have been driven out by the cry of "efficiency," which may roughly be translated as "politics for politics' sake." Persistently for the last twenty years the ideals of order or liberty have dwindled in our books; the ambitions of wit and eloquence have dwindled in our parliaments. Literature has purposely become less political; politics have purposely become less literary. General theories of the relation of things have thus been extruded from both; and we are in a position to ask, "What have we gained or lost by this extrusion? Is literature better, is politics better, for having discarded the moralist and the philosopher?"

...

When everything about a people is for the time growing weak and ineffective, it begins to talk about efficiency. So it is that when a man's body is a wreck he begins, for the first time, to talk about health."

-G.K. Chesterton

A "Dynamic" And "Vibrant" (read multi-racial) City...

Joliet - Tony Ray was talking with a police officer outside the Forest Park Community Center in Joliet a couple of weeks ago when the two men suddenly heard the crack of gunshots.

Ray, executive director of the center, headed to safety inside the building. The officer ran to investigate.

Sadly, the incident is not all that uncommon.

There have been 165 shootings so far this year, almost as many in all of last year. Murders are up, too. There have been nine so far this year compared to six in all of 2008. That has community leaders like Ray and the Rev. Herbert Brooks concerned. The two men remember the gang wars of the 1980s and they don't want to see a return to the bad old days.

Ray hears from residents who are afraid to travel the Forest Park area's streets at night. "It's definitely increased," he said of the recent rash of violence. "These kids (who are shooting guns) do not understand the ramifications if they hit somebody."

...

Robert Putnam of Harvard became an academic celebrity in 2000 with his book, Bowling Alone, which argued that society is in dire straits because so many community attachments are breaking down. Americans are increasingly mobile and isolated, with few group affiliations. Prof. Putnam wants to bring back what he calls “social networks,” because he says they make people happy, contribute to democracy, help rear children, and make the economy run better.

He later analyzed census and survey data to find out what role racial diversity plays in all this—whether it deepens attachment to community or further atomizes people. To his dismay, he found that racial and ethnic diversity destroys trust in neighbors and institutions.

The third graph, on page five, shows the results of asking whether people trust members of their own race “a lot.” Prof. Putnam points out that if diversity makes people distrust people of other races, it might be expected to increase their trust in people of their own race—and here is the surprise: Diversity reduces trust in everyone, even in people of one’s own race. This is what leads to Prof. Putnam’s widely quoted conclusion that diversity makes people behave like turtles—they pull into their shells. On the basis of other survey data, he lists other unhappy consequences for people who must live with diversity:

• Lower confidence in local government, local leaders and the local news media.

• Lower political efficacy—that is, confidence in their own influence.

• Lower frequency of registering to vote, but more interest and knowledge about politics and more participation in protest marches and social reform groups.

• Less expectation that others will cooperate to solve dilemmas of collective action (e.g., voluntary conservation to ease a water or energy shortage).

• Less likelihood of working on a community project.

• Fewer close friends and confidants.

• Less happiness and lower perceived quality of life.

• More time spent watching television and more agreement that “television is my most important form of entertainment.”

This is a convincing set of reasons to oppose the sort of diversity we are always told to celebrate. Indeed, it confirms what immigration activists and race realists have been saying for decades. These findings alone, and the publicity they have received, are worthy of, well, celebration.

Can't Be Done?...

from Vdare,

From: C.R.R.

Voluntary deportation, long advocated by American immigration reform patriots, is working successfully here in the Czech Republic.

As many as 2,200 foreigners willingly left our country as part of a trial program started on September 15th. They will not be allowed to return for a period to be determined by how long they illegally lived and worked here.

The Interior Ministry divides the illegal foreigners into two groups. For aliens without financial means, the ministry will pay for their airline ticket and a hotel room the night before departure.

The other group, those with funds, will have to use their ill-gotten gains to purchase passage.

Czech Interior Minister Martin Pecina said of illegal aliens:

"They are really a problem not only for our labor market, but mainly from the point of view of organized crime.” [Over 2,200 Foreigners Join Voluntary Returns Program, Prague Daily Monitor, September 21, 2009]

Pecina sums up the problem that illegal immigrants represent not only in the Czech Republic but also in the U.S.
