The following quotes were collected by Michael Copeland in 2013, but the collection has not previously been published.

“At the Precipice” — The Dire State We Are In

Compiled by Michael Copeland

  • “Europe… is at the precipice of obliteration.”
    — Jan Suzanne Krasner, American Thinker, 6 Apr 2013
  • In 1980, the Islamic Council of Europe laid out their strategy for the future — and the fundamental rule was never dilute your presence. That is to say, do not integrate. Rather, concentrate Muslim presence in a particular area until you are a majority in that area…
    Brussels Journal, 13 Jul 2006
  • The unthinkable barbarity of honor-killings along with rape, incest, slavery, pedophilia, and polygamy, are becoming commonplace in western democracies among Muslim populations.
    — Robert Neville, Logan’s Warning, 20 Dec 2010,
  • …I think of all the low-information voters we have; how immoral we have become; the massive welfare state; the contempt so many have for whites; and how fast we have deteriorated in the past 30 years!
    — Bluffcreek, comment on Michael Finch, FrontPage, 2 Feb 2013
  • We are divided as a people, flooded with illegal immigrants, crime is rampant, the welfare system is in full bloom, government spending is out of control…
    — bluffcreek1967, comment, FrontPage, “The End of the Republic?”, 18 Mar 2013
  • When the masses wake up and see the plot and how their leftist governments have betrayed them and how their treasonous liberal media have lied to them they will rise and Muslims will find no peace in Europe and in America.
    — Ali Sina, 19 Jan 2013
  • We should put a stop to this mass immigration of people coming from outside Europe, mainly Islamic countries, of people who cannot and will not adapt to our way of living in Western Europe.
    — Philip Claeys, Belgian MEP, www.rt.com, 28 Feb 2013
  • A new report from Oslo Norway’s Police Department on the number and nature of rapes it is experiencing is nothing short of stunning. Of the rape cases with identified perpetrators 100% are Muslim immigrants! By contrast Norway has recently welcomed 61,000 Catholic Polish workers — not a single one of whom is a rapist.
    www.sodahead.com, 7 June 2011
  • Last year 6,509 rapes were reported to the police in Sweden — the corresponding figure in Denmark was 392.
    — Ingrid Carlqvist, Jihad Watch, 6 Feb 2012
  • CJ   “Talking about England… well, they’ve already submitted”
    Mark   “They’re gone.”
    CJ   “Forget about it. They already have submitted. It’s all over. You can halt all the immigration you want to those countries [England and France] but it won’t matter, because they have a sufficient percentage of their population now, already, and with the next generations coming behind them they got all the numbers they need. They don’t have to import any more.”

  • England is lost.
    — BS77, FrontPage, “Muslim who raped 13 Year Old UK Girl”, 27 Jan 2013
  • First, I can say without hesitation that I hope never to return to Britain. I actually don’t see any point. Jews are targeted by massive anti-Semitism of both the social and physical varieties. Why would anyone Jewish want to live there?… there is no future for Jews in England.
    www.CarolineGlick.com, 21 Jan 2013
  • Asian boys coming up to me and saying “I’m gonna rape ya. And if you don’t go with me I’m gonna punch ya in the face with a knuckle-duster, and if ya don’t give me a blow-job.”… It’s happening to lots of girls… Every day… Yes … I feel intimidated by ’em, and… scared.

    “No, it doesn’t.”

    — Stacey Dooley and Muslim demonstrator on Channel 4 documentary on Luton
  • “The people of France will live under the Islamic movement, even if you don’t like it. We will collect the jizya poll tax.”
    — Muslim with loudspeaker, London, Jihad Watch 20 Jan 2013
  • Now there is no trace of any kind of community — that word so cherished by the Left. Instead [Acton] has been transformed into a giant transit camp and is home to no one.

Panic in the World

I might as well out myself: I’m a COVID-19 skeptic, a.k.a. a Coronaskeptic.

I have to be careful when I talk about the ChiCom flu with my friends and acquaintances. The vast majority of them, both liberals and conservatives, have succumbed to the general hysteria that has been propagated by the television and greatly amplified by social media. Conservatives are slightly less likely than liberals to have joined the mad rush of panic, but most of them have been infected by it to at least some degree.

I don’t think Corona 2019-nCoV, a.k.a. COVID-19, a.k.a. the Chinese Crud, is “the most deadly epidemic in human history”, or whatever hyperbolic designation that is currently being peddled by the media. Rather, it is a pandemic of mass hysteria.

That doesn’t mean that I think that the Wuhan Coronavirus doesn’t exist, or that it isn’t killing people. I’ve simply come to the conclusion that it is no more dangerous than the seasonal flu, and possibly less so.

If I posted the above on social media, it would immediately be taken down, and my account with Facebook/Twitter/Instagram/YouTube would most likely be closed. The major social sites have joined hands with the legacy media and governmental agencies to suppress any opinions that contradict the coronavirus narrative.

I’ve waited this long to post about it because I’ve been patiently collecting data on the disease since long before the hysteria began. The first thing I can tell you is that ALL the models that predicted the trajectory of the pandemic are useless. None of them seems to have remotely reflected the reality of the spread of the disease. As a result I won’t be referring to any of them; there’s no point.

Before I outline my general conclusions about what’s happening, I’ll go over some of the data points here.

The single most valuable resource I’ve encountered thus far is a Swiss site called Swiss Propaganda Research. Yes, they are avowed Coronaskeptics, but they have compiled their data carefully and thoroughly, and they source everything they assert. My favorite quote from them is this one:

Danish researcher Peter Gøtzsche, founder of the renowned Cochrane Medical Collaboration, writes that Corona is “an epidemic of mass panic” and “logic was one of the first victims.”

I recommend their page as a useful source for links to detailed, sober scientific data on the spread and virulence of COVID-19. It is updated frequently.

Peter Robinson’s interview with Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, a professor of medicine at Stanford University, is lucid and informative (hat tip Power Line):

Scott Jensen is a physician and — horrors! — Republican state senator in Minnesota. In the following video he reveals to an astonished interviewer that the state government had given doctors instructions on how to tweak death certificates to overstate the incidence of COVID-19 as the cause of death (thanks to Vlad for uploading this video):

For some interesting analysis of the WuFlu data, see Vlad’s two interviews with former CIA station chief Brad Johnson.

Video #1:

Video #2:

We are far enough into the pandemic now to have ample data on its lethality. At this point it seems to roughly comparable with the seasonal flu — maybe slightly worse, maybe not quite as bad.

The data from Germany have proved particularly useful. According to this article from Reason:

“It’s Their Interpretation of Islam”

“It’s Their Interpretation of Islam”

by Michael Copeland

“Ah, but it’s their interpretation of Islam”, we are assured by smooth-talking muslim speakers. Journalists have picked this up, and dutifully write about “an extremist interpretation” that lies behind the latest atrocity. This assurance about interpretation is surprisingly successful. It is designed to make us doubt what Islam’s source texts mean, including — and this is the crafty part — those whose meaning is clear and obvious. We can easily be taken in by this appealing and fair-sounding assertion. It puts us off the scent. That is the idea.

First, it is necessary to clarify what is meant by an “interpretation”. If an instruction says “give away one tenth of your income to charity”, that does not require an interpretation. The meaning is quite clear, and the instruction can be exactly followed. An “interpretation” is different. Say a politician repeatedly evades an interviewer’s question with some bland generalisation. Eventually the interviewer says, “I’ll take that as a ‘No’”. That is an interpretation. It is quite a different matter from the straightforward following of what a text says.

Bearing in mind that the Koran — all of it — forms part of Islam’s law, how does the “interpretation” allegation stand up to the test?

Let us see. We can take commands and instructions from the Koran and Hadith and compare them with what muslim leaders and speakers say.

Hatred

Koran 60:4 praises the “excellent pattern” shown by Ibrahim when he said (to the Jews):

“Between us and you enmity and hatred forever….”.

How do the spokesmen treat that?

  • Osama bin Laden: “Enmity and hate shall forever reign between us.”
  • Osama bin Laden: “Battle, animosity, and hatred — from the Muslim to the infidel — is the foundation of our religion.”
  • islamqa.com: “Muslims in the West must have … enmity and hatred of the kaffirs.”
  • Alminbar.com: “You should hate them, disown them and their religion.”
  • Abu Usama, Birmingham: “No one loves the kuffaar. We hate kuffaar.”
  • Anjem Choudary: “As a muslim I must have hatred for everything non-Islam.”
  • Yousuf Makharzah, muslim cleric: “Animosity towards the Jews is an obligatory religious duty, and one of the signs of the believers.”

Killing

The Koran commands:

  • “Kill the non-muslims wherever you find them” 9:5
  • “Kill them wherever you overtake them, and expel them from wherever they have expelled you….” 2:191

What do the clerics say?

If Only

This week’s edition of Dymphna’s Greatest Hits discusses the train of events that led up to the Great War in the summer of 1914. It was originally posted in June of 2005.

If Only

by Dymphna
June 19, 2005

Right Wing Nuthouse recently posted a moving look back at D-Day and the character of the American soldier which allowed us to pull victory out of a brutal and chaotic situation. From the perspective of sixty years, he looks back on that assault as the defining moment for the twentieth century, listing the many disasters which might have followed on the defeat of those soldiers hitting the beach.

In a house filled with amateur historians, the post sparked dinner table conversations that lasted for several days. Finally, the consensus came down to one incident, one date, that changed the course of the 20th century and set into play the events which were to dog the rest of our days, even down to the present.

That moment, of course, is June 28, 1914. The incident is the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, heir to Austro-Hungarian throne, by Gavrilo Princip in Sarajevo.

Princip was a member of an anarchist group, the Black Hand. He was one of three assassins (that lovely Arabic word), sent to Sarajevo when it was known the Archduke was to be there, invited to inspect Army maneuvers. All three of these anarchists had tuberculosis and figured they wouldn’t live long. They wanted their short lives to be useful and to that end set out for their date with destiny.

However, the prime minister of Serbia was told about the plot ahead of time and ordered the men arrested. His orders were ignored, and the men arrived in Sarajevo. If only the arrest orders had been carried out.

The first attempt on Franz Ferdinand’s life was a grenade under the Archduke’s car as they drove from the train station to City Hall for the usual reception. However, the driver of the car saw this and managed to speed ahead, avoiding damage. Unfortunately, two people in the car following were seriously injured. Thus, after the reception the Archduke insisted on going to the hospital to see them.

It was decided that the Archduke should be escorted to the hospital on a route that bypassed the city. Unfortunately, no one told his driver. It was only as they were turning into Franz Josef Street that the Army general accompanying them noticed the mistake and had the driver back up. Guess who was at a café on the corner? Gavrilo Princip. Firing from only five feet away, how could he miss? He shot the Archduke in the jugular vein and the Archduke’s beloved wife, Sophie, in the abdomen. As he was struck, Franz Ferdinand begged Sophie to live. “Think of the children,” he implored.

The couple died at the governor’s residence. If only someone had told Franz Urban, the driver of the car, about the change in plans.

The cascade of events following their deaths was like a carefully placed set of dominoes. The players in this deadly game were as follows:

1.   Princip was a Bosnian Serb. It was presumed that the machinations of Serbia were behind the assassination. Thus the demands and ultimata by Austria-Hungary were on Serbia. They sent an “expert” to collect evidence.
2.   Serbia was bound to Russia by alliance and by ethnic ties.
3.   Germany was bound by its alliance with Austria-Hungary.
 

Can you see the clouds gathering here? Can you see the dominoes beginning to tremble?

4.   Austria-Hungary demanded apologies and cessation of anti-Austrian propaganda. They wanted cooperation from Serbia in their investigations. Meanwhile, Serbia stalled. This intestinal fortitude was encouraged by word from St. Petersburg that Russia would back them.
5.   Now come Britain and France. Bound by a mutual alliance with Russia, the Triple Entente, they were obliged to come to Russia’s aid.
6.   So began the mobilization: Britain readied the fleet, France mobilized.
7.   Austria declared war on July 28th. Two days later, Russia mobilized, part of which was deployment on the German border.
8.   The Germans made an ultimatum to Russia: cease and desist.
 

On July 29th, Germany proposed British neutrality. In return, the Germans would not annex Belgium or French territory. If only the British had agreed.

9.   On August 1st, 1914 — less than six weeks after the Archduke’s death — Germany declared war on Russia.
 

And so the dominoes fell. From the invasion of Belgium to the Treaty of Versailles in 1919, the losses were massive:

The Forbidden City

Chances are, anyone who is having the problem described below is unable to read this post.

I’ll explain what happened: Late Monday night I started to get reports on skype and by email that people were getting a “403” error when they tried to access Gates of Vienna. The actual text of the message varied, depending on the browser and operating system, but it would look something like this:

You don’t have permission to access this resource.

Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

Since I am a technical dunce when it comes to website mechanics, I consulted with Vlad Tepes and Henrik Clausen about what was happening. They looked into it, and it seemed that a crucial setting on the site was disabled for some reason, and needed to be enabled. Henrik enabled it, and over the next 36 hours people reported back to me that they were once again able to access Gates of Vienna. So everything was fixed.

But only for about 36 hours. I started getting messages today from the same people, and also additional ones, that the same error message was popping up when they tried to visit this site. It’s only happening in Europe and Israel, as far as I know. I’m getting no emails from the USA, Canada, or Australia about the “403 Forbidden” message. Countries affected include the UK, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Hungary, Romania, and Israel. And probably others that I’m forgetting. But not on this side of the Atlantic.

I consulted at length with the hosting service, and the setting that Henrik enabled was still enabled. They can’t recreate the problem, since they’re in the USA. So there’s nothing more they can do unless I can give them specific instructions about what needs to be changed.

Something is fishy here. One time could be just a random glitch, but twice? And all within less than 48 hours.

My paranoid intuition says that when whatever it was the major ISPs in Europe tried to do two days ago failed — that is, when Henrik enabled the setting. So they decided to try something else to accomplish the same purpose. I don’t believe this is a coincidental, accidental malfunction — I think it is deliberate.

But then, I’m paranoid.

So… If you have friends, relatives, or acquaintances that report this problem, please explain what I have posted here. And most of the significant content I post is also posted at Vlad’s place, so they can go over there to stay somewhat up-to-date.

I don’t think this is an issue in the USA because not many people are very interested in what’s going on in Europe. I don’t report on Adam Schiff, Jerrold Nadler, Nancy Pelosi, Bill Barr, or any other facet of the impeachment circus. I leave that to the specialists, and that’s where all the American traffic tends to go.

But this blog has a wide readership in Europe. Or rather, had — I think my European traffic is probably significantly reduced by now.

The End Times Are Upon Us And New Times Are Approaching

Here’s the latest from our English correspondent Seneca III.

The End Times Are Upon Us And New Times Are Approaching

by Seneca III

Throughout the West and much of the rest of the world, politics and international relations as we have known them are finished. We are tired peoples; both morally and ethically tired, exhausted and angered by the hurricane of political, religious, economic and hegemonistic machinations that have been grinding us down into chaos and thus brought this disastrous situation upon us.

All of the things, all of the working relationships between people and their organs of governance, all of the endeavours and the successes that together we have achieved over the last seventy-four years in order to give us relatively stable cultures and countries, have been stripped from us, the rational and wholesome majority. They have been blown away into the gutter of history like broken toys, thence to be washed away by a river of deviant effluent. This, however, is about to change. We know now how, why and who has brought this holocaust upon our heads, and there will be no forgiveness.

Those perpetrators will face a Tai Fēng (Typhoon— a Big Wind, often known as a ‘Supreme Wind’) of our making. Such a wind is now hard by our door, driven not by judges and politicians, not by priests and prophets, not by alien predators and parasites, not by academicians and debauched sexual predators, not by virulent non-reproducing feminists, not by bankers and avaricious international businessmen, but by we the people, the common man and such real women as are left.

We will be that wind, and we will prevail. And our river that comes with the wind will be a cleansing one. Thereafter, rising like a Phoenix, will come freedom and sovereignty together, new and ethical ways of managing and maintaining human affairs.

Until the next time, of course.

Eid al-Adha: When Muslim Streets Run Red With (Animal) Blood

Eid al-Adha: When Muslim streets run red with (animal) blood

by SF

The Muslim calendar year is strictly lunar, and consists of twelve lunar months, making a year of 354 or 355 days. That is because Muhammad wanted to show that Islam is “holier” and “truer” than both Judaism and Christianity. Since Jews have a mixed solar/lunar calendar, and Christians a purely solar one, Muhammad chose one that neither of the others use. (Just as he chose Friday as the Muslim holy day rather than Jewish Saturday or Christian Sunday.) But using a purely lunar calendar removes from it any linkage to the seasons. As a result, for every solar year, the Muslim calendar is short by eleven days, and so, year by year, Muslim holidays shift a bit through the different seasons.

Islam itself is a form of Judaism. Jewish Rabbis living in Arabia taught Judaism to Muhammad. Then he killed them and created an arabized version of Judaism. Eid al-Adha (the Feast of the Sacrifice) was originally called Eid al-Qurban. But when the Muslims realized that “Korban” was the unique Hebrew word used by Jews for sacrifice, they changed the name. “Hajj” itself is the Arabic pronunciation of the unique Hebrew word designating a pilgrimage festival. The Hajj celebrates Abraham’s sacrifice of Ishmael at Mecca.

The Koran tells us that the Jews and Christians are liars who falsified their scriptures. According to “Islamic truth”, Abraham was a Muslim, and not a Jew. Allah ordered him to sacrifice his favorite son Ishmael (not Isaac). This was to be done at Mecca, and not Jerusalem. But, similar to the Jewish story, at the last moment allah tells Abraham not to sacrifice his son, and to substitute an animal in his place.

Each year this event is commemorated throughout the Muslim world (in the USA this year it was on August 10 and 11). In Muslim countries, halal animals (kosher for Muslims) are slaughtered. (Australia profits by shipping tens of thousands of live sheep to Muslim countries, while liberal New Zealand recently stopped this practice.) Muslims cannot eat pigs, but can eat camels, cows, and sheep. In Muslim countries, Eid is celebrated by slaughtering and butchering these animals in public. Any good Muslim man can do the slaughtering. The mandatory method of slaughter is to cut the animal’s throat with a knife. It often happens that this slaughter is botched, with the result that the bleeding animal runs screaming in pain through the streets of the town.

Matt Bracken and Vlad Tepes Discuss Video Samizdat

Last week Vlad Tepes made a guest appearance on an InfoWars segment hosted by Matt Bracken. The video below shows their hour of discussion (with the commercials removed). As you may notice, the video has been hosted on YouTube, but not on Alex Jones’ channel — as far as I know, the InfoWars YouTube channel has been permanently taken down.

This is an example of what I discussed a couple of months ago in “Samizdat in the Age of Digital Totalitarianism”: the imperative to propagate dissident information through distributed lateral networks. That’s what Matt and Vlad talk about in this clip, specifically as it pertains to bit-torrented video platforms:

Stoking Herkimer

When I turned eleven I graduated from the Cub Scouts and moved up into the Boy Scouts. We lived in the southern suburbs of Baltimore at the time, and every year our troop spent a week at a BSA camp in northeastern Maryland. A week of intense heat, mosquitoes, swimming, shooting, nature study — anyone who’s been in the Boy Scouts knows the drill.

Our campsite was medium-level when it came to fixtures and conveniences. In the more primitive sites, the scouts had to dig their own latrines and cook over a campfire. In the more swanky sites there was a little electrified building with a kitchen and a dining room, and not far away a modern latrine building.

Our site was in between. We had a latrine building of sorts, and a big canopy tent with picnic tables and a propane stove for a dining hall. And for hot water we had Herkimer.

Herkimer was a massive thick-walled cylindrical tank that we used as a water boiler. It sat over a fire on four big cinderblocks, and was fed by a water pipe from a well that served all the campsites in the area. I don’t know why it was called Herkimer — for some mysterious reason, that was the boiler’s name.

Herkimer had to be fired up before every meal, because the metal trays we used as plates had to be washed in very hot water. Our troop leaders explained the need for rigorous food hygiene, remarking that a failure to run those trays through boiling water would cause the troop to come down with diarrhea — which at scout camp was not a pleasant experience, even with a latrine building less than a hundred yards away.

So three times a day Herkimer was ravenous for wood. The camp management delivered a load of junk wood every morning that could be used for the fire, but it was never quite enough. We Boy Scouts would be sent out into the woods (which our campsite was in the middle of) to fetch whatever additional wood we could find. We weren’t allowed to cut living trees, but we could take down small dead ones, pick up deadfalls, and gather whatever else we could find. We broke up discarded packing cases and threw in big thick hunks of cardboard. Anything that would burn was fair game — I remember using a shovel to root out a large stump and break it up to stoke Herkimer.

*   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *

Herkimer came to mind recently when I was contemplating the enormous political and cultural upheavals that are characteristic of our time.

Let’s take a look at the running of that big old water boiler as a process. We could break it down into three parts:

1.   The objective. The purpose of Herkimer was to generate sufficient quantities of boiling water to achieve culinary hygiene. One might devise other schemes for reaching the same objective, but at that particular place and time, a large metal tank with water piped into it and a fire underneath comprised the established system.
2.   The method. One opened the valve to let water into the tank and ignited the fuel underneath. Thermodynamics took care of the rest.
3.   Praxis. Two major components were required for operation, water and fuel. The former was taken care of by a well and a pump. For the latter a horde of grubby Boy Scouts was required. Again, one can imagine other schemes to achieve the same goal — paying top dollar for truckloads of charcoal briquettes to be hauled in, for example. But scrounging for junk wood was the chosen procedure.
 

There’s a socio-political Herkimer currently operating in Western Civilization. We’ve all observed the continuous onslaught against established religion, traditional customs, and cultural institutions that have been built up over the course of more than a thousand years. New rules and practices that would have been unimaginable a generation or two ago are being forced upon a populace that never desired or requested them. I’ll give some specific examples later on in this essay.

This destructive process is painfully visible in its innumerable manifestations, but teasing out the various strands of its three components is a tricky business. Nevertheless, we’ll give it a try.

1. The objective

What is the purpose of all this unpopular cultural coercion? The ostensible reasons — “human rights”, “diversity”, “social justice”, and so on — are obviously only the cover story. The real purpose is generally occluded, and can only be deduced by observing its myriad manifestations within our society.

The apparent goal of all these actions is lysis: the breaking down of long-established social structures. Lytic agents are being deployed throughout society to dissolve cultural membranes and connective tissue.

In the case of Herkimer, the overseers of the process — the camp management and our troop leaders — established the goal. The overseers of our societal Herkimer are of necessity less obvious. They are commonly labeled “globalists”, but a more accurate term might be “global socialists”, since socialism has always been a major component of the one-world utopias conceived by the visionaries of the blood-soaked century that preceded this one.

A new world is being built, and all the components of the old one must be disassembled before the new order can be constructed. That’s what the cultural Herkimer is for.

They’re Coming to Take Me Away, Ha Ha!

The urge to create the above image was prompted by the latest of uncountably many incidents in which a Muslim perpetrator of an atrocity was identified as having mental problems. In this particular case, it was a Tunisian man in Sweden who was described as having “psychological problems” after he stabbed an elderly Jewish woman and then fled the country.

The general rule seems to be this: If (1) there is a single perpetrator acting alone, and (2) his victims are unrelated to him and not among his acquaintances, then he has “psychological problems”. The incidence of the application of this rule by the media seems to be approaching 100%. When was the last time you read a news report about a “lone wolf” mujahid where he was not described as “having a history of psychological problems”, or words to that effect?

Contrast this practice with the immediate and routine description (often without evidence) of any white non-Muslim who commits an atrocity as a “racist”, a “Trump supporter”, a “white supremacist”, a “right-wing extremist”, etc. In other words, the motive for the deed is always described in ideological terms. But if the perpetrator is Muslim, the initially assigned motive is never ideological — as if adherence to Islam were not in fact evidence of adherence to an extreme political ideology.

Mind you, that doesn’t make the description wrong. Devout adherence to Islam is quite clearly a form of mental illness. Either people with mental problems are drawn to Islam, or being exposed to Islamic doctrine induces mental illness. Or both.

Samizdat in the Age of Digital Totalitarianism

A couple of days ago we posted about the blocking of BitChute in Australia via a process known as “DNS poisoning”. It seems that the emergence of BitChute as a source of uncensored videos was enough of a threat for the Powers That Be in Oz to decide that it must be neutralized.

During the same time period the process of de-platforming dissidents has accelerated. Almost anyone who is well-known and has a slightly right-of-center political opinion can expect to have Tweets and Facebook posts deleted, YouTube videos pulled, and — if he is prominent enough to require complete excommunication — the closing of his account. Dissidents with the greatest celebrity status, such as Tommy Robinson and Milo Yiannopoulos, can expect to lose their accounts on multiple platforms simultaneously, as if their suppression were being coordinated by some trans-national censorship board.

Vlad Tepes is on BitChute and BitTube now, which is why the topic of DNS poisoning came up. His videos are now going up and staying up, thanks to BitChute; hence the establishment’s efforts to cut off viewers’ access to BitChute.

As it happens, all of these methods of censorship and repression are being implemented not by the state, but by private corporations. This gives repressive governments cover so that they can deny responsibility: “Facebook [or Twitter, or Instagram, or Google, etc.] is a private company, and may enforce its terms of use without government interference.” The ISPs in Australia that are sabotaging BitChute’s IP on their domain name servers are also private corporations, as far as I know — the Australian government doesn’t have to do the dirty work.

This doesn’t mean that governments are not arresting, charging, trying, and convicting citizens for “hate speech”. Britain, Sweden, and Germany seem to be vying with each other to see who can rack up the largest number of state prosecutions for hate speech. The rest of Western Europe, Australia, and Canada are no slouches, either. The USA has the First Amendment, so it’s not so bad here, but we’re only hanging on by the skin of our teeth. If Hillary had been elected in 2016, and had thus been able to appoint two Supreme Court justices, we’d probably be following the Canadian model right now.

Nevertheless, private companies are doing most of the heavy lifting when it comes suppressing free speech. Some of them are probably following the inclinations of their CEOs (think Mark Zuckerberg), but a quiet government word about antitrust action or a tax-evasion investigation must do wonders to convince them to help the state suppress Internet dissent.

A few days ago we posted an interview with a French communist MEP from back in 1992. This was one of Vlad’s videos, so it was uploaded to BitChute. However, I happened to find a mirror of it on a minor YouTube channel, and posted that instead.

How was that channel able to post the video? Even if Vlad still had a YouTube channel, that video would have been immediately deleted by Google, because it said naughty things about the European Union. How come the other channel gets a pass?

The answer is obvious: Vlad’s channel was very popular, and had turned into a major influence in the realm of online videos. The other channel is relatively minor, and evidently doesn’t attract enough viewers to warrant being suppressed.

There’s a lesson for us dissidents in that.

A New Conservatism: Nationalist, Populist and Converging

Dr. Turley sums up the realignments that even the New York Times is admitting. From India to Australia to Japan, a form of “Trumpism” is coming into being. And the EU is trembling as it feels the earth moving under its old globalist certainties:

That doesn’t mean the realignments don’t hurt. Some people will be discombobulated; change is inevitable and rocky. Those who can see their loss as an opportunity will flourish. Others, like PM May in Great Britain, could be looking at the end.

With these changes, Gates of Vienna needs to update its categories. No longer is it enough to have the “EU” without naming its constituent nation-states. We will probably have to list “globalism” as a thing, even as it shrinks into something less…well, less global.

How to Bypass the Australian Ministry of Truth

Vlad and I have received a number of complaints from people in Australia who say that BitChute videos never work for them, either as embeds or at the BitChute site itself. It turns out that the Australian government has blocked BitChute so that its citizens can be kept safe from “hate”.

Fortunately for Australians, the authorities chose the quick and dirty way of banning the site: they screwed up its DNS records on two of the main DNS providers in Australia. There’s a fairly easy way to redo your computer’s settings and bypass the government’s preferred DNS. The instructions below were posted earlier at Vlad Tepes in a slightly different form.

How Australians can bypass state censorship of the internet

by Vlad Tepes

The following post is meant for Australians, and any other nationals, who feel the state should not decide for them what information they should have access to and what information they should not. I think it is doubly important in a place like Oz. which has the pretence of being a free state, yet sends police to your door to ask probing questions like, “Do you support Donald Trump?” (This example is from New Zealand but similar things are happening in Oz.)

From what I can gather, all of bitchute.com, Gates of Vienna, and Blazing Cat Fur, and likely due to this post, my site, have been (or will be) blocked by several ISPs in Australia. I base this on emails received by me, and by the operator of Gates of Vienna.

I also Skyped a friend of ours in Oz and using Skype’s screen share feature, had her navigate to these sites.

On her ISP, she was able to see all the listed sites except BCF.

So this is how we bypassed it so that she could see the one that was blocked.

The following graphics are for an Apple computer.

First, go to your settings gear. For most that should be on the dock. If it isn’t, then go to your magnifying glass very top right and type: System Preferences.

Once you have that open, it should look sort of like this:

Then look for the grey globe that says Network. It’s around the middle in this photo, but take your time and find the sphere-like thing that says “Network”. Click that and you should see something like what is below. You want to click the “advanced” button at the bottom.

You should see something like this now, which will list the WiFi networks you use.

In the row of buttons at the top of the picture below, you should see DNS at third from the left. Click that:

Where I have a black square, you will see your DNS numbers. What you need to do, is click the minus sign till both numbers are gone, then type in the exact numbers you see here in this photo below, or what you see below in text. To make it easier I have added them in text so you can scrape and paste.

208.67.222.222
208.67.220.220

Once the existing numbers are gone by using the – button, you can use the + button to create the field to paste in, or type in the numbers above. After you have done so, click OK, then on the next screen, APPLY.

Without a reboot or any other action you should then be able to see any sites you were prevented from seeing.

We know this works as we tested it with someone in Australia, but its extremely common in Turkey and Iran where the governments are ahead of Australia and New Zealand by several months in terms of information totalitarianism.
