The Rantings of a Tschandala

Our Israeli correspondent MC explores the historical roots of 21st-century Wokism.

The rantings of a Tschandala

by MC

“The fate of our times is characterized by rationalization and intellectualization and, above all, by the disenchantment of the world.”

“Precisely the ultimate and most sublime values have retreated from public life either into the transcendental realm of mystic life or into the brotherliness of direct and personal human relations.”

― Max Weber

I am in my 70th year. I was born in 1951, the year the King died.

For most of my life we have been in the post-WW2 ‘hot’ peace — Korea, Suez, Aden, Cyprus, Israel, Vietnam, Malaysia (I was there), Israel, Oman, Northern Ireland (I have the medal for this one), Falklands, Bosnia, Kosovo, Iraq, Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen and probably more in India, Pakistan, Burma/Myanmar, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Grenada, Angola, Mozambique, Rhodesia/Zimbabwe.

But only now do I get shivers down my spine as the moderating hand of Western Civilization circles the plughole prior to disappearing down the drain.

The long struggle to remove slavery from the equation, to deliver some degree of liberty to all and sundry is in the process of failing, failing because Karl Marx and his sponsors did not like mere Christianity.

It is no accident that civilization and Christianity have walked hand in hand. Here in Israel we are celebrating Pesach (Passover) in memory of the time in which Yahovah brought His people (and a lot of Egyptians — the Mixed Multitude) out of slavery and into a new land.

Tomorrow is Bikkurim, the festival of first fruits, signalling the end of Matzos (Unleavened Bread) and the beginning of the counting of the Omer leading up to Shauvot (Pentecost).

I am a biblical fundamentalist. I start at the beginning of the book, not the middle, and that is the difference. Christianity is the religion of Constantine, an amalgam of the religions of Rome in the third century; Mithras, Celebe, Dagon and Jesus amongst others, but based on the Ten Commandments of the Jews.

It is those ten commandment that led to the enlightenment and to the industrial revolution, and above all, to contract law and legal systems which made farming and commerce (and mining/drilling) — and therefore manufacturing — viable. A law applicable both to rulers and the ruled.

For the first fifty years of my life, these things seemed set in stone, but Marx had set in motion a set of forces that put man’s commandments above God’s commandments. The leaven of the Pharisees 2: intellectuals know best!

Under Marxist theory, the rules only apply to the ruled; the elite can do as they please. This used to be called Feudalism, but Marx picked it up, cleaned and polished it and rebranded it under new management — bold, sexy and utopian.

No churches, no priests, no landlords, everybody equal — just commissars and apparatchiks ‘caring’ and sharing their superiority (with the help the odd persuader or two)….

We all know how that worked out, it was later revamped as Fascism (Statism) and then as Nazism (Leader {Fuhrer} Worship). It is a little-known fact that the Nazi Party did not sign the 1945 surrender document; only the military did. Thus the government did not surrender as such, and Nazism did not die, it relocated, it morphed into something maybe even more deadly. But that’s ‘conspiracy theory’.

Happy Easter From the Netherlands!

Our Dutch correspondent H. Numan reports on the latest labyrinthine twists and turns on the political scene since the recent parliamentary elections in The Netherlands.

Happy Easter!

by H. Numan

The continuing saga of the Dutch electoral farce: I reported about the elections, and later the gaffe made by the prime minister. It’s becoming a real Easter parody now: the PM had to explain himself before the Sanhedrin (Parliament) on White Thursday. He was crucified on Good Friday, but: verily, the Lord has risen! He survived a motion of no confidence by the skin of his teeth. He was saved by his coalition partner CU (Christian Union; Calvinist Marxists) who didn’t support the motion.

I’m not too fond of the CU, to put it mildly. For three reasons: I don’t like hypocrites, very strict Calvinists and I don’t like Marxists. Gert Jan Seegers is all of that. That makes him a pharisee par excellence in my book. A pharisee is someone who goes through the motions, without any real conviction. Others must see how devout or dedicated he or she is. Progressives excel here. Others must abide by rules they don’t abide themselves. Woe betide you if you don’t!

Well, Gert Jan Seegers (leader of the CU) voted to support the PM, but after the motion was passed, he said he doesn’t want govern with the VVD again. Good boy, that’s my hypocrite! If you feel that way, you should have supported the motion.

It’s difficult to say what is going to happen now, but it will make a new cabinet a LOT more difficult. I told you Dutch PMs usually don’t last more than 12 years. We don’t have a limit. A US president can be elected twice, on very rare occasions three times. A Dutch PM can be elected as often as he wants. However, about three terms seems to be the practical limit. No PM has ever served four terms.

Right now, Mark Rutte has a problem. He did survive the motion of no confidence, but not as the victor. His position is now seriously damaged. How much? A poll showed the electorate of all parties (except for VVD voters, of course) don’t want him to be the next prime minister. The percentages vary from 45 to 85%. Ouch. That hurts!

The problem dear leaders have is that they usually don’t have a spare on hand. Dear leaders don’t want to share their love of the people with anyone. Dear Mark is no exception. He did have a few successors, but had to toss them out for political reasons. For example, Halbe Zijlstra bragged he met Putin in his dacha. Pretty soon it was discovered he wasn’t even in Russia at the time. He was unceremoniously dumped and is working for a construction company now.

Long before that, Rutte eliminated all opposition within his party. The party does what Dear Mark wants. If you don’t, out you go. The last one to try was Rita Verdonk. She lost the internal elections for party leadership to Mark. Then she resigned from the party, and set up her own party TON. TON stands for Trots Op Nederland, or Proud About the Netherlands. Ton also means barrel. This proved to be a empty one. It got nowhere. The party quickly collapsed and doesn’t exist anymore.

Where Mark represents the most progressive wing within the VVD, Rita represented the conservative wing. When she resigned, many conservatives moved with her. The remaining conservatives got the message: be quiet. Be very very quiet!

A Structural Incompatibility

The following article from the Netherlands is a lucid and succinct summary of the problems caused by the importation of Muslims into the West.

Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating this piece from Ongehoord Nederland:

Discussions on religion are distracting

by David Pinto
31 March 2021

In my previous two articles, I wrote about the usefulness and necessity of a new political system and outlined a number of suggestions on how to accomplish that.

This article and the next will be about migration. Firstly on the immense difference between the historical migration of Huguenots and Jews from Eastern Europe and modern migration. In the next article, translation into policy.

It is beyond dispute. Many societal tensions have to do with migration, citizenship, and diversity in relation to modern migration streams. How is that?

European societies, unlike in the past, are confronted with such sharp cultural differences that people wonder: Can we continue to live together? Sexual crimes in Germany, Norway, and Sweden make the problem with non-Western fellow humans manifest. The Netherlands is also struggling with this. Jews, women, and gays are victims of the multicultural society. There are surely natives who misbehave against these people, but the majority are the pre-modern foreigners who are intolerant of them. Jews cannot go out on the street with a kippah. Gays can no longer hold hands. And women can no longer go walking in certain neighborhoods. According to results from the Amsterdam Regional Police Commission, foreigners make up 75% of rapists and 69% of assailants. The Netherlands has sunk deep.

To completely shut the border is not the solution. That is not realistic. But it is also not realistic to act as if there were no problem. Islam is a problem, but that doesn’t explain all wrongs. There is more at play. This is a new political voice!

Religious approach

Many ascribe these (and other misbehaviors) to Islam, the religion of the perpetrators. There is much to indicate that this is, indeed, true.

Texts in the holy writings (Koran, Hadith, Sharia) such as: Kill the unbelievers (Koran 9:5); Kill everyone who insults Islam or Mohammed (Koran 33:57-61), Kill the apostates (Koran 4:89); the duty to wage war on unbelievers (jihad), “even if reluctantly” (Koran 2:216), Jews and Christians cannot be friends of Muslims (Koran 5:51), Muslims must terrorize others (Koran 8:12).

The long list of Islamic terror groups responsible for a series of attacks around the entire world, Islamic Jihad, ISIS, Al-Qaeda, Taliban, Hezbollah, Hamas, Boko Haram, Al-Nusra, Abu Sayyaf, Al-Badr, Muslim Brotherhood, Lashkar-e-Taiba, Ansaru, Jemaah Islamiyah, Abdullah Azzam Brigades and many more. And they all rely upon the holy texts of Islam. Islamic terror is, therefore, not limited to “confused crazy people” or an extreme group.

Only Muslims have problems everywhere with their neighboring peoples, whoever they are: Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Christians, Jews, Baha’is, Shintos, and even themselves (Muslims with other Muslims). While any other combination of the above-named groups live together without problems. In The Clash of Civilizations Samuel Huntington lists 130 armed conflicts around the entire world. 95% of them are between Muslims and neighboring lands.

Nowhere are Muslims happy. Not in Gaza, Egypt, Libya, Morocco, Iran, Iraq, Yemen, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Syria, Lebanon, Nigeria, Kenya, or Sudan. Where are they happy? In Australia, Great Britain, Belgium, France, Italy, Germany, Sweden, the US, Canada, Norway, and India. They are happy in almost every country that isn’t Islamic.

Many testimonies and warnings through the centuries about Islam from renowned scholars, teachers, experts, scientists, and philosophers. Icons who all are wholeheartedly negative about Islam. Here are just a few illustrations:

Sacrificing Liberty for Fear

Once again our Israeli correspondent MC does battle with the Narrative of the Great Pandemic of 2020.

Sacrificing Liberty for Fear

by MC

Bolshevik Communism was supposed to take over the world. The Third Reich was also to be a worldwide movement. So what is ‘Globalism’ but a reincarnation of both at the expense of our liberty?

Men rise to power, and then the ‘power’ takes over. They see themselves as gods, having a vision of world betterment, creating ‘new men’ to follow their doctrines and their beliefs, or to die in their dissidence.

There has been much talk of the mRNA vaccines being a mass elimination event. Although they are probably not, it has demonstrated how easy it is now to use fear to get people to voluntarily submit to be injected with strange experimental substances, to willingly sacrifice their hard won freedom of choice for an insubstantial but highly propagandized fear.

First a word on Spanish Flu. SF is the benchmark for ‘pandemics’, but like the plagues and black deaths before it, we know very little about it except that the described symptoms match those of Reye’s Syndrome (not influenza).

The existence of the first viruses was confirmed in the 1930s with the advent of the electron microscope, but there has been a tendency to equate all undefined illness with ‘viruses’ ever since. One can read about this in the Japanese ‘enteroviroform’ (SMON) issue of the 1960’s. Here is a 1974 paper where scientists are still looking for a ‘virus’ causing SMON.

It is assumed that the Spanish Flu came back with the soldiers from the WW1 trenches, but there is an alternative explanation as well (note: aspirin is acetyl salicylic acid):

The high case-fatality rate — especially among young adults — during the 1918-1919 influenza pandemic is incompletely understood. Although late deaths showed bacterial pneumonia, early deaths exhibited extremely “wet,” sometimes hemorrhagic lungs. The hypothesis presented herein is that aspirin contributed to the incidence and severity of viral pathology, bacterial infection, and death, because physicians of the day were unaware that the regimens (8.0-31.2 g per day) produce levels associated with hyperventilation and pulmonary edema in 33% and 3% of recipients, respectively. Recently, pulmonary edema was found at autopsy in 46% of 26 salicylate-intoxicated adults. Experimentally, salicylates increase lung fluid and protein levels and impair mucociliary clearance. In 1918, the US Surgeon General, the US Navy, and the Journal of the American Medical Association recommended use of aspirin just before the October death spike. If these recommendations were followed, and if pulmonary edema occurred in 3% of persons, a significant proportion of the deaths may be attributable to aspirin.

Given that our obsession with viral pandemics is centred upon the assumption that Spanish Flu and its extraordinary death rate amongst young people was actually a viral pandemic rather than an iatrogenic accident, it is incumbent upon us to understand what is known of the event, and understand as well the many unanswered questions that still exist a hundred or so years later. I suggest reading the whole article as it throws some light on modern pandemic planning, and the assumed narrative of the ‘killer virus’ that is behind the great 2020 plandemic.

Covid-19 may well be new, and may well be the result of careless handling of bio-warfare pathogens, but its effects were minimal except amongst those compromised by age and chronic disease. It was no worse than the ‘Asian flu’ of 1957 that I can just about remember (extra school holidays).

What is new about Corona was the fanning of the flames of fear by highly paid and connected public servants and the ultra-rich, probably for their own benefit but basted with a liberal virtue-signal of supposed philanthropy. Is Fauci a hero or a cheat?

The Camp of the Sane and The Camp of the Saints — A Book Review

Long-time readers will remember Max Denken, who contributed a number of essays here several years ago. Mr. Denken retired from the scene to write books about our civilizational crisis. Fjordman has kindly reviewed the first one for Gates of Vienna readers.

The Camp of the Sane and The Camp of the Saints — A Book Review

by Fjordman

It is not every day that you come across a book dedicated to the continued survival of an entire civilization. Yet the author Max Denken has written just such a text. He has previously written under the pen name Takuan Seiyo for dissident online publications such as Gates of Vienna, The Brussels Journal, The New English Review, Quarterly Review, Takimag and others. His well-written and carefully researched book about the future of European civilization is called The Camp of the Sane and The Camp of the Saints: Poland and the erosion of Western sanity, 2015—2020.

The title is a reference to The Camp of the Saints (“Le Camp des Saints”), a novel from 1973 by the French author Jean Raspail. It predicted a Third World mass invasion of Europe, causing the downfall of Western civilization. This process was compressed in time so that what might take fifty years in real life took fifty days in the book. In addition, the bulk of illegal immigrants in the novel came from India. Today, while immigration to Europe comes from every corner of the planet, much of it comes from the Islamic world and Africa.

Apart from that, the novel was remarkably prescient in describing the dysfunctional mindset of the modern Western world. We have become so wedded to unsustainable humanitarian ideals that we are mentally incapable of defending our national existence. When faced with millions of people coming from the global South, we simply raise a white flag and say that they are welcome to colonize our countries. At least, that is what our leaders and mass media do. The EU and Pope Francis react to illegal mass migration in the Mediterranean in almost exactly the manner described in Raspail’s book decades earlier. Europe risks committing suicide because of abstract humanitarian ideals and a Globalist ideology of open borders.

Jean Raspail died in June 2020, shortly before he would have turned 95. He lived to see his native France and other Western countries being partly overrun by migrants. Max Denken completed The Camp of the Sane in the summer of 2020, just as the author of The Camp of the Saints died. Western cities were then engulfed in Black Lives Matter protests, attacks on statues and European monuments and sometimes violent riots. Western mass media presented U.S. President Trump as an extremely evil man, as they had been doing continuously for five years. Some Western media said more positive things about the Communist dictator Fidel Castro when he died in November 2016 than they said about Donald Trump when he won free elections that some month.

Max Denken has Polish ancestry, has lived in California for many years and worked in other parts of the world. He considers the entire Western world to be deeply sick and heading for some form of collapse. This applies to North America as well as Western Europe. Against this crumbling Camp of the Saints, Denken pits what he terms The Camp of the Sane. Roughly speaking, this encompasses much of the eastern half of Europe, or at least the eastern quarter. Ironically, these are countries that were squeezed and bloodied between Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union during the Second World War and endured generations of repressive Communist rule during the Cold War. Perhaps their recent historical experiences have provided these nations with a stronger resistance against ideological indoctrination.

Western Europe still has some brave political leaders such as Geert Wilders, Marine Le Pen and Matteo Salvini, but they may have emerged too late to save their countries from collapse. The Western world and what remains of its civilization are in freefall. Denken does not rule out the possibility that something sensible can be created in North America out of the disunited Multicultural mess that is present-day USA and Canada. However, he believes that the best future prospects for European civilization lie in Central and Eastern Europe.

The countries of Central and Eastern Europe no doubt believed that they had joined a sensible project for European cooperation and joint prosperity when they joined the EU. Some of them have come to realize that the increasingly repressive EU now resembles a cultural suicide pact. Money from the EU may seem tempting to nations that were left impoverished after decades of Communist rule. Yet these are silver coins laced with ideological poison. For 1400 years, the forces of Islam have been the collective enemy of the peoples of Europe. Now, the EU wants to force formerly independent European countries to take in Muslim immigrants.

The Besmirching of That Star Spangled Banner

Our Israeli correspondent MC takes another look at the Bizarro World of American politics since the investiture of the Puppet on January 20.

The Besmirching of that Star Spangled Banner

by MC

If President Biden and his Democrat party really did steal that election by malice aforethought then the banner is irrevocably soiled — the land of the slave and the home of the snowflake.

It is sad for a foreign fan of all things American, like myself, to see the nation taken over by criminals: Bidens, Clintons, Capones, Parkers and Barrows rather than the Reagans, Kennedys and Kings — true Americans despite their faults.

I have a nightmare: that all Americans hate each other, that skin colour is more important than achievement and character. That accusation, that bigotry, that cancel culture, that Trump-hatred, that they dominate the District of Columbia.

That the Supreme Court Judges are so obsessed with politics and the orange-man-bad cult that their decisions are totally biased and irrational and that “they, the people” are so emasculated and leaderless that “we, the elite” can just walk all over them.

But most of all, we must ask ourselves: what happened to the Republican opposition?

They caved. They have allowed the USA to become a one-party state. Their leaders were and are pathetic. They allowed the pseudo-assassination of their own guy; worse, they were Brutus: they, too, drove home the blade, and then stood by as “Cassius” Soetoro undid all that was achieved in four years with just a few strokes of the pen.

Can a dim-witted old man really stand the test of time, or is he just a puppet of all that is worst of the “Bandung Generation”?

Of course, if the election was straight and fair, then none of this applies.

Americans, especially Democrats, need to ask themselves: is hatred of Trump worth destroying the nation for? It’s that Russian Roulette with an automatic pistol again. Socialism is not an ‘empty chamber’, and a blank is also lethal at short range. Trumpophobia may be fashionable, but it is not worth committing national seppuku over.

With the censorship, digital book-burning and ‘no platforming’ solidly in place, the USA is a few steps away from a helter-skelter (British : a spiral slide around a tower at an amusement park) slide into full scale Communism and poverty — yes, poverty, your poverty, you queuing for food for 12 hours a day.

Growing up in 1950s Britain, one of the cultural nuances we missed in American film and TV was the visual clues to what was considered ‘poor’ in the USA, what was considered poverty in the USA was normal middle class in UK. Poor people in the USA had old 1940’s Fords, in the UK few had any car whatsoever!

In the aftermath of WW2 the UK socialists gained power and built a welfare state in four years, a welfare state that cost the taxpayer dearly, in reality, up to 70% of their earnings, much of it through indirect taxation. This has crippled Britain. It is a national ball and chain locked firmly to the leg of economic mobility. I am also of the opinion that it was Bismarckian socialism that drove Bethmann-Hollweg into the WW1 debacle; Germany could not compete with the evolving (Czarist) Russian economy.

What was President Trump’s crime that he faced such hostility?

Firstly, and importantly, it was a negative crime, the crime of not being part of the clique; although successful, he did not come from the correct lineage and was therefore despised. He was despised and hated by everybody from mild conservatives leftwards, he was the symbol of failure to all those closet admirers of Marx.

Mild conservatives hate taking action. Tommy Robinson was also despised by the soft conservatives because he was not one of them and was outspoken when he had no ‘right’ to be. Class bigotry is alive and well in the UK today.

Marxism has failed. 150 years later the middle classes have still not risen and taken over the means of production; Marx’s historically inevitability has proven to be elusive. In its place we have had attempts to re-engineer Marxism, attempts that lead Russia through Marx-Leninism (a short circuit where a coup d’état leads to the unwelcome imposition of Soviet tyranny), Fascism (Mussolini’s rationalization of Marxism into Statism) and Nazism (Hitler re-initializing Marxism, but focussed on race rather than class).

The flavours of the tyrannies varied. We have Stalin’s Marxism in one country, a form of nationalist socialism, and Mao’s nationalist/racist Han-corporatist-Marxism — and Pol Pot’s feudal Marxism. All of these (except Mussolini) used mass extermination techniques to ram through their politico-religious doctrines. Of course, with mass media constantly at hand, we now only need to murder a few, and cancel a few, and over-publicise the hype.

Nasty, unpleasant governments for all, except for those few at the very top, and those for whom it was a wonderful opportunity to satiate their illicit and depraved sadistic desires on vulnerable people.

And now, we can welcome the USA to ‘Club Gulag’ at a FEMA camp near you.

The rule of law broke down years ago, maybe epitomised by the Rambo movies, where the illegal action of a rogue but unaccountable sheriff against a psychologically challenged Vietnam Special Forces vet, now hobo, triggers a slide into extremes of violence.

The Rambo scenario, triggered by policing authorities taking ‘shortcuts’, is now familiar. Do the ends ever justify the means? In defending the ‘rights’ of the hobo, one upholds rule of law. The hobo, too, is innocent until proven guilty, but when the elite are guilty, they now seem to be able to make the burden of proof impossible. The dry rot in the deep state has penetrated right to the very core.

Innocent? guilty of non-wokism — punish — kill, that is the real historical inevitability. For ‘woke’ substitute ‘Islam’ or ‘Spanish Inquisition’ or ‘Nazi’ or ‘Hun’ or whatever is current.

The moment anybody, including Christians, leaves the ten Commandments behind, the amoral warlord culture once more takes over and the rule of terror is once more released on the masses.

So here we are today, uncertain as to the legitimacy of the Administration.

If the Administration were innocent of electoral fraud then one would expect them to not only be open to independent investigation, but to positively encourage it in order to establish true legitimacy.

So the flag droops, tarred and feathered, lacking credibility.

“Land of the Free” — only as long as you take the vaccine, wear the mask, social distance etc., etc.

“Home of the Brave” — Now just cower in the corner and do as you’re told and the covid boogaloo will pass over — you are safe as long as you do as we say (not as we do).

What just happened?

Jihadis Taking British and American Kafirs for Profit

There has recently been a lot of talk on both sides of the Atlantic about the payment of reparations for slavery. The following essay by Michael Copeland examines the history of slave-taking by Muslims of white Europeans and Americans.

Jihadis Taking British and American Kafirs for Profit

by Michael Copeland

“Muslims have a long shared history with Britain,” says an imam in a 2017 video produced by — yes, really — Lincolnshire Police. He shows Arabic coins and traded objects to prove it. The video is in-your-face propaganda for Islam, courtesy of the taxpayer. Michael Blackburn is critical:

BRITAIN’S POLICE FORCES seem to have agreed amongst themselves that their real purpose is not deterring crime and catching criminals but pulling increasingly embarrassing stunts in public to signal their political virtue…

Conflating the presence of a few traders and traded objects with the idea of a profound interconnectedness of cultures is ridiculous.

The criticism is valid. In a rather different way, though, Islam has had a long history with Britain, not so much “shared” as “inflicted”. This was in jihadi raids on the coast that took British kafirs for profit.

Islamic Raids for Kafir Captives

The story of Islamic raids on Britain’s coast is one of repeated trauma, pain, and suffering. Almost forgotten today, it is the shocking roll call of unprovoked attacks on Britain’s defenceless coastal villages and fishermen at sea. These forays were made by armed sea-borne jihadis to abduct British working men and women for profit. The raids continued for years.

The taking of captives in Islam is in direct fulfilment of the Koran’s instructions, all of which form part of Islamic law. Mohammedans are “the best of peoples raised up for mankind” (3:110). Kafirs are “the worst of creatures” (98:6): they are “ever to you a clear enemy” (4:101), who have to be fought against and subjugated (9:5, 8:39). Their territory is Dar al Harb, the Realm of War, where jihad, “warfare against non-Muslims”, is “a communal obligation” (Manual of Islamic Law, Reliance of the Traveller, o9.0, o9.1). Kafirs are legally available to be taken by force in jihad.

The coastal predators of Britain were mujahidin from the Barbary States of North Africa and from Turkey, doing what their ideology commands — abducting kafirs because they are kafirs:

“Seize them, confine them”,

orders Koran 9:5. As Robert Spencer points out, “The primary market for slaves among Muslims was for non-Muslims, as enslaving fellow Muslims was considered a violation of the Qur’an’s requirement to be “merciful to one another” (48:29). That same Koranic verse, however, also commands being “ruthless to the kafir”. Slave-taking is legitimised to this day by Islam’s hostile rules. The jihad doctrine is, as Al Azhar explains, “a permanent war institution” against all kafirs.


Captives make lucrative spoils. They can be sold for labour, the women as concubines, and can bring in ransom money, another action authorised by Islamic law, in Koran 47:4:

Wokist Waycism — May We Rest in Piece (sic)

In the essay below our Israeli correspondent MC tackles some of the thorny issues concerning the COVID-19 vaccine.

A few days ago, in an unrelated context, I wrote the following about the Corona hysteria:

We know only a few facts about the “pandemic”. We know that the Powers That Be are going to extraordinary lengths to convince us that their narrative is true, and that it is the only possible narrative, and everything else is a “conspiracy theory”. We also know that dissenting opinions and alternative information are being suppressed by any and all means necessary.

This creates a vacuum of real, reliable information. It’s an environment in which conspiracy theories flourish. Yet, the two main facts I cited above demonstrate that there really is a conspiracy of some sort, although it’s next to impossible to determine its exact composition and goals.

So we are of necessity conspiracy theorists. As long as the information vacuum persists, there is no other way for the intellect to engage what little information is available to it.

Wokist Waycism — May we rest in piece (sic)

by MC

A few years ago I wrote a piece about who benefits from the Holocaust. Despite the adverse comments, I still see the intervening history as supporting the idea that wokist waycism is rooted in a distortion of Holocaust issues, and that because of this, we Jews need to ‘man up’ and step down from the Holocaust pedestal, which has given birth to something far more sinister and which we should endeavour to fight.

We are all racists. The fear of the stranger is built-in, and the flames of that fear can be massaged to the extent that we abuse people for not wearing a mask. Waycism is about the left’s obsession with skin colour; true racism is much more about fear of the unusual.

Early Nazi propaganda portrayed Jews as dirty, and a health risk to the average upright (Aryan) German citizen, and it may have been true in some cases (curious, however, because Judaism demands bathing and washing rituals on an almost daily basis).

This last year should tell us how easily all this can be achieved, and now we are beginning to see those who do not want to take the vaccine being excluded from society in exactly the same way as Jews were from Nazi society. No vaccine certificate, no job. Instead of a tattooed number on the arm, a digital certificate on the smart phone.

But it is not a vaccine. It is a ‘gene therapy’, a genetic modification of the body to produce anti-spike proteins and the associated antibodies. It is untested; it is thus experimental and is being long-term tested here in Israel. This gene therapy does not stop the Covid, it just treats the symptoms. It was initially tested on healthy (not at risk from Covid death) people. The long-term impact of the therapy is unknown. Will the production of proteins and antibodies just switch off in a few months, a few years, never? We don’t know.

But in many ways, all this fades into insignificance compared to the impact of the worldwide propaganda and the gagging of truth and adverse opinion, and the Nazi-style branding of the ‘unvaccinated’ as dirty and disease-ridden.

We can recognize this phenomena in history. Stalin used the kulak as his excuse to exterminate millions in the Holodomor, and Hitler used Jews and Slavs (untermenschen) as focal points of fear, inciting hatred and street violence.

We all know where this leads.

The Satan of the Bible is a manipulator, the most subtle of the beasts. His aim is to replace Yah, and to do this he must substitute himself for Yah in the minds of men.

Genesis 3 tells us that at issue is exactly who defines “good and evil”. Is evil telling lies, or is it telling truth that is considered to be ‘hate speech’ (usually defined by the liars).

Philosophically speaking, ‘godship’ is the ability to define right and wrong on behalf of the client people group, and this is the object of the latest power grab: The World Economic Forum want a ‘reset’. They want to reset our perception of good and evil to accord with their view of how their utopia should be.

A hundred and sixty years ago, many God-fearing gentlemen did not consider slavery to be evil. They would see “hewers of wood and carriers of water” in the context of “cursed art thou Canaan”, and looked no further. A few did, and discovered that Yahovah was a God who brought people out of chattel slavery. (Genesis 9 v 25)

Good, evil, and money (and power) are inextricably bound together. We are told that the [the love of] money is the root of all evil. And for those gentlemen of slavery, the whole of their well-being and ‘superiority’ were based on chattel slavery and the economics of that slavery.

But there is a new slavery: Big Pharma slavery.

We have been taught that Big Pharma can come up with cures for many, many diseases and problems (except the ones I seem to have). But the history tells us that the pharmaceutical industry has so shaped the market that medicine has become a vicious circle of drugs, and then more drugs to treat the side effects of the first drugs.

Those of you who take statins (currently top of the drug hit-parade) should read this. And to the Big Pharma shills that will descend on us defending their master’s voracious habits at $3.50 a comment — this is not my study, or GoV’s; it is a National Institutes of Health document.

But worse is to come. There has been talk of vaccine coercion for several years, and there was a time when smallpox vaccine was mandatory, even in my lifetime.

So Here There Be Dragons! (Part VB)

So Here There Be Dragons!

by Seneca III

Part V B — Epilogue

Sentimental emotion amounts to, in the words of the philosopher Roger Scruton, “Look how noble is this feeling and how noble I am for feeling it”; it is essentially self-regarding and hostile to the truth that threatens its continuance.

Tried and tested ancient ideas such as the nuclear family, clearly defined genders and their roles in life, nationality, private property and freedom of thought and expression are rooted in tradition, culture, and history. These ideas are what have shaped us, and if they are cast aside we will become nothing but an amorphous, mindless, human blob to be shaped instead into whatever grotesquery the ascendant global power elites decide.

It might be argued that what they are attempting is, in the long term, the right thing, the logical thing, but by extension we intuitively know that this concept is being pushed before its time has come and thus such a forced imposition was doomed to failure even before it emerged. Those whose lust for personal power and wealth dwarfs any atrophied altruistic inclinations they might once have had, those who are fully compromised by lining their pockets with corrupted money, all fail to see and least of all understand the impracticalities of what they are attempting to achieve, because we are still too diverse a species, too stubbornly intransigent and too unwilling give up those gods we know in favour of a nascent entity we do not.

Consider the ongoing rollout of Smart Meters. If you combine SMs with electric vehicles you have the ability to control whether a person can or cannot travel beyond foot/bicycle range of their residence. Consider further the often mooted possibility of the abolition of cash and the imposition of only electronic and plastic transactions and you can see the potential for mass ‘non-personing’ and a clear road to serfdom. Note that despite my repeated refusals to permit the installation of a Smart Meter my electricity provider keeps insisting that I do so:

And, of course, there’s this little gem in the bottom right hand corner of the letter. No wonder they charge the moon for every miserable KWh:

And, just to top it off, our Overlords comfortably ensconced and richly rewarded in the Palace of Westminster are working towards instituting a legal requirement to wear a mask and display a vaccination certification if you wish to leave your house for any purpose whatsoever. Then they really will have the whole damn population incarcerated in a metaphorical Gulag Archipelago controlled by a brutalised, Common Purposed Police Force already fully trained and practiced in this sort of enforcement and backed up by civilian ‘Jobsworths’, ‘Covid Rules Enforcers’, most of whom are obviously semi-literate and semi-numerate highly paid thugs recruited by local councils from amongst the otherwise unemployable.

To add insult to injury, just over a week ago I went to my local Pub for a couple of pints and a chat with my friends. The furniture had been thinned out and rearranged to meet Covid rules and I ended up sitting in a wing chair next to a hot radiator and having a loud conversation with people sitting six feet away. Unfortunately, without thinking things through, I had hung my body warmer over the wing next to the radiator. Later, when it was time to go, I reached for my card in order to pay and found that the pocket the card was in had been tight up against the radiator and the card had curled up and was so distorted it could not be used. Thus did I end up spending an absolute nightmare of a week without plastic as I awaited a replacement card. Whilst I always carry sufficient cash for emergencies and was able to do my small local shopping unimpeded by the loss of the card, December is the month in which I have to renew both my car and house insurances and these days, as the providers will no longer accept payment by cheque, it must be done either online or by telephone.

The ICC Plays Politics Against Israel

Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating this article from the conservative Dutch blog Ongehoord Nederland:

The Netherlands and the ICC are on slippery ice against Israel

The Hague-based International Criminal Court (ICC) allows itself to be used by the Arab lobby against Israel. While the United Nations (UN), with 192 member nations, has previously shown itself to have a fixed agenda in condemning the Jewish state, the ICC, which some 60 countries, including the Netherlands, have recognized, now plays a political role. Last Friday, February 5, 2021, the ICC ruled that it held jurisdiction over Judea and Samaria (West Bank of the Jordan), Jerusalem, and Gaza.

The fight against the Jewish state has for a long time not limited itself to attacks, plane hijackings, guerilla and rocket fire. An extensive international anti-Israel network has been set up in administrative organizations and NGOs. Recently, this tactic managed to get the UN to no longer consider the Temple Mount, the location where the Temple of Solomon stood in Jerusalem, as a Jewish heritage, but as an Islamic heritage. The name has been changed to Haram-al-Sharif. The Netherlands (read: Rutte cabinet 3) finds that to be a good idea and agrees. Thus the ICC has now determined that areas of Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria, and Gaza are under the jurisdiction of the ICC. The sovereignty of Israel is thus, violated, and this body is operating politically.

Judea and Samaria is the Israeli province where Palestinian reservations or Palestinian areas with self-governance are permitted. The agreements were made in the Oslo Accords of 1993. It is thus an region, not a state or a people, but a relic from 1948 when the ancestors of these Arabs did not want to be Israeli, but also were not welcome in the lands of their origin. These Palestinians live outside Israel in camps in Lebanon, Syria, and Jordan without rights, as second-class, discriminated-against foreigners who have no status. In Lebanon, for example, they are the last to be vaccinated against the Corona virus, as announced by the Lebanese government. The priority of the wealthy PLO, financed by Qatar, and the Iran-armed Hamas that (rules) Gaza, is not the fate of the Palestinians. Their choice is to delegitimize the Jewish state.

Israel is not a member of the ICC, and should not be concerned with this statement. They do not extradite or permit investigators. That in itself would be an insult to the outstanding justice system of the country. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) are not only one of the best armies in the world, but are also one of the most moral military forces in the world. It is this enormous precision and strong intelligence service that has ensured that as few civilian victims as possible are killed in Israel’s defense.

The opposite happens when Hamas fires unfocused rockets at Israeli civilians or when Palestinians weekly attack Jewish civilians and soldiers. These actions against Israel are fueled by the European Union, which not only carries out illegal activities in Israel but also supports NGOs who thwart Israeli interests. Even the construction of houses and roads is hindered by these action groups. That certainly is part of democracy, but it indicates that the Netherlands and the EU, in the whole, do not play a kosher role.

Attacks like that against 17-year-old Rina Shnerb on 23 August 2019, turn out to be funded with Dutch tax money, and the EU, with the Netherlands in the lead, presents a strange figure because it labels products from Israel, finances Palestinian schoolbooks full of hate against Jews, and supports dingy Palestinian militias. And now possible ICC cases against Israelis, who, if convicted, can no longer safely travel through countries that are members of the ICC. The situation may thus eventuate that Palestinian terrorists could travel within the EU and the Netherlands, but an Israeli military commander or politician couldn’t.

The ICC, and thus, the Netherlands, are politically and morally on slippery ice, if that is not already clear.
