Multiculturalism: A Tool of Tyrannical Elites to Destroy Faith-Based Social Harmony

Religion has been described as a a tool whereby the ruling class exercise control over the masses.

That is absolutely correct, but it is not such a damning indictment of religion as some might think.

Ruling is what ruling classes do, and they use tools such as religion, traffic regulations, and the criminal code, to do it. Without a ruling-class-imposed social order, life would indeed, for most people, be nasty, brutal and short.

Syrian President Assad Deconstructs Trump

Speaking on the Latin American TeleSUR TV network  Syrian President Bashar Assad said that:
US president Donald Trump is not a truly independent political leader but merely a puppet of US corporations, military and intelligence, and who serves their interests.
Such an explicit "fuck you" to the President of the United States of Aggression is a clear indication that in the judgement of the Syrian Government and, presumably, their Russian allies, the United States has embarked on an irreversible regime-change policy for the sovereign nation state of Syria and that there is, therefore, nothing to be gained by diplomatic language.

Continuing the line that Trump is nothing but a fat-assed puppet of the US deep state, Assad said, according to the RT report, that Trump pursues:
 “no own policies” but only executes the decisions made by the “intelligence agencies, the Pentagon, the big arms manufacturers, oil companies, and financial institutions.
and has thus betrayed those who elected him:

In America Truth Speaking Kills Careers

9/11 Destroyed America

Paul Craig Roberts

PaulCraigRoberts.org, April 25, 2017: The events on September 11, 2001, changed the world. It was the excuse for the US government to launch military attacks on seven Middle Eastern countries, causing civilian casualties in the millions and sending waves of Muslim refugees into the Western world. The US government wasted trillions of dollars destroying countries and murdering women and children, while public infrastructure in the US deteriorated, Americans’ homes were foreclosed, and American health needs went unattended. 9/11 was also the excuse for the destruction of the protection that the US Constitution provided to ensure the liberty of the American citizen. Today no American has the protection of the civil liberty that the Constitution guarantees.

On September 11, 2001, when a neighbor called and told me to turn on the TV, I stopped what I was doing and turned on the TV. What I saw was the two World Trade Center Towers blowing up. I had often enjoyed lunch in the rooftop restaurant in one of the towers across the street from my Wall Street Journal office.

Illicit drugs are said to have killed 47,000 Canadians last year.

At the week-end, a drug dealer in our town sold 17-year-old Heather Mclean a fentanyl-laced drug package.

It killed her.

It's time now to shut down the needle exchanges.

It's time now to shut down the safe injection sites.

Doing drugs is not something to be tolerant of.

Dumb Intelligence Tests: Or Why IQ Testers Need to Improve Their Understanding of Intelligence

A thought provoking article at the Unz Review by the Nigerian scholar Chanda Chisala, considers the conundrum arising from the fact that sub-Saharan Africans are among the world's top-ranking competitors in the high-IQ game of Scrabble, whereas the people of sub-Saharan Africa are said to have mean IQ scores barely above the level of mental deficiency.  The article generated what, for me, has been a useful discussion, some keys points of which I have summarized here:

1. Those I have referred to as IQ-ists believe that IQ, representing an individual's overall score on a battery of verbal reasoning tests, number puzzles, and pattern matching tasks, measures a unitary property of the central nervous system, which is identified as intelligence.

The New Liberalism, No. 39: We support free speech as long as it is not hate speech, which is whatever we hate you for saying

College Journalist Bigots: The Wellesley News


The Marquette Warrior, April 19, 2017: One interesting thing about the rise of political correctness on college campuses is that student journalists, people whom one might suppose would support free speech, have overwhelmingly lined up in favor of suppressing opinions the left does not like.

A particularly egregious example appears in the Wellesley News, the student paper of that very expensive, very elitist northeastern institution.

Many members of our community, including students, alumnae and faculty, have criticized the Wellesley community for becoming an environment where free speech is not allowed or is a violated right. Many outside sources have painted us as a bunch of hot house flowers who cannot exist in the real world. However, we fundamentally disagree with that characterization, and we disagree with the idea that free speech is infringed upon at Wellesley. Rather, our Wellesley community will not stand for hate speech, and will call it out when possible.Of course, what speech is “hate speech” is a matter of opinion.

A Yale history professor explains how governments use disasters and tragedies to control society

Timothy Snyder is the author of "On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century" and the Levin professor of history at Yale University. Snyder explains how governments use tragedies to manipulate society. Following is a transcript of the video.

TIMOTHY SNYDER: So 9/11, a massive terrorist attack mainly against this city, led us to give up a good deal of our rights. It also led us to invade a country which was completely irrelevant to the terrorist action, with enormous consequences, financial, moral, political, for us. So 9/11 in retrospect is a kind of warning of the mistake that we can make. It could be much worse than 9/11. I mean not just the terrorist attack could be worse, sadly that's true, but the reaction of our leaders could also be worse. Whatever one might say about Bush and company, and I said as many bad things as I could at the time, whatever one might say, they didn't use it as an excuse to say that all Muslims were to blame. They didn't say we had to suspend all of our civil rights, due process, and so on. I'm afraid that the people we now have in power have fewer restraints than that crew. So 9/11 is a kind of gentle warning for us about what we must not do the next time around.

Aspiring tyrants use real, provoked, or fake terrorism as an excuse to declare some kind of state of emergency. State of emergency meaning we lose our basic rights and then that temporary situation becomes permanent. We get used to it, it becomes the everyday. This is basically page one of the playbook of modern tyranny. So it's naive, it's really foolish of us to forget about this because the tyrants, the aspiring tyrants certainly know about it.

If You Really Loved Humanity You'd Off Yourself As the Swedes Have Done



The Swedes, it seems, are committing national suicide in order to prove that they are not racist, which raises the question:

If protecting your own people and their national living space is racist, is racism such a bad thing as liberals say?

How the United States of (Crisis) Actors Goes to War: Syria

We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality – judiciously, as you will – we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.
Ron Suskind, quoting Karl Rove, NYTimes Magazine, Oct. 17, 2004

Fooling Most Americans All the Time: America's Fake Democracy

America is not a democracy. It never has been. It is a republic governed by an executive, a legislature,  a judiciary, and a media oligopoly, all owned by, and subordinate to, the globalist corporate interest and a few dynamic members of the billionaire class.

So-called democratic elections in America are a charade to keep the masses docile. Election results are dictated by the Money Power who employ all forms of legal and illegal subornation (election campaign contributions and hospitality such as the use of corporate executive jets, girls, boys, booze and cash in brown envelopes, plus most importantly, the promise of after-office payoffs in the form of speaking fees, ridiculously large advances on book royalties, corporate directorships, etc.) to insure that the majority of those elected serve the plutocratic interest whatever they may promise while on the campaign trail. In addition, the public is duped by propaganda and intimidated by false flag terrorism.

A Population Policy to Restore the Fertility of the European Nations

The European nations are dying. None has a fertility rate at or above the replacement rate. Some, Germany, Italy, Hungary and Poland, for example, have a fertility rate that is barely half the replacement rate.

Under certain circumstances the decline in fertility might not matter. A falling population would mean falling home prices, labor shortages and hence increased wages. Such effects, by easing the struggle for existence, would tend, in time, to restore the birth rate to or beyond the replacement rate.

Swedish Doctors Association Report on Fake Medical Aid Provided Victims of Alleged Gas Attack at Idlib, Syria

White Helmets Movie: Updated Evidence From Swedish Doctors Confirm Fake ‘Lifesaving’ and Malpractices on Children

By Prof Marcello Ferrada de Noli, Chairman, Swedish Doctors for Human Rights – SWEDHR.

March 2017:

Summary. This article reports updated findings I obtained in a further examination of videos published by the White Helmets, and which aimed to represent consequences of an alleged gas attack in Sarmine in March 2015 [See my first report of March 6, 2017]. [1] The videos depict a medical rescuing scenario focused on ‘lifesaving’ procedures on children.

The new findings, which have also been confirmed in second-opinions issued by MD specialists and members of Swedish Doctors for Human Rights (SWEDHR) on March 12, 2017, a) demonstrate that the main highlighted ‘life-saving‘ procedure on the infant shown in the second video of the sequence was faked. Namely, no substance (e.g. adrenaline) was injected into the child while the ‘medic’ or doctor introduced the syringe-needle in a simulated intracardiac-injection manoeuvre [See video below with the findings’ synopsis]; b) may bring support to the hypothesis mentioned by doctors in the previous report, referring that the child in question, “if not already dead, might have died because the injection procedure”.

The three children subjected to ‘life-saving’ procedures in the second video were eventually dead, and the cause of death –that according to the White helmets video would be attributed to chlorine gas– has been disputed by other medical opinions independently of the assessments by the Swedish doctors mentioned in the SWEDHR reports. For instance, in the opinion of a UK doctor, the health-status in reference to the above mentioned child could be instead attributed to drug overdose, likely opiates.

The findings in these reports raise serious questions about the ethical integrity of the organization White Helmets, on the anti-medical procedures they advertise in its videos, and the war-criminal behaviour represented by the misuse of dead children with propaganda aims.

Scott Adams: Assad Gas Attack is Bunk

According to the mainstream media – that has been wrong about almost everything for a solid 18 months in a row – the Syrian government allegedly bombed its own people with a nerve agent.

The reason the Assad government would bomb its own people with a nerve agent right now is obvious. Syrian President Assad – who has been fighting for his life for several years, and is only lately feeling safer – suddenly decided to commit suicide-by-Trump. Because the best way to make that happen is to commit a war crime against your own people in exactly the way that would force President Trump to respond or else suffer humiliation at the hands of the mainstream media.

From Former Canadian Finance Minister, Paul Hellyer, to Current Canadian Finance Minister, Bill Morneau: You're a Liar

Hon. Paul T. Hellyer

March 14, 2017

AN OPEN LETTER TO THE MINISTER OF FINANCE BILL MORNEAU
The Hon. William F. Morneau
Minister of Finance
House of Commons
Ottawa, ON K1A 0A6
Dear Minister:

I am writing in respect to your official response to petition 421-00858 sponsored by Elizabeth May, member of parliament for Saanich-Gulf Islands, BC, calling upon the Government of Canada to restore the use of the Bank of Canada (BoC) to make interestfree loans to governments for “human capital” expenditures. In your reply dated November 12, 2016, you said to do that “would require the Bank of Canada to either borrow the funds it loaned to the Government, or create new Canadian currency.”

The first alternative is a non-starter and can be dismissed out of hand. The second suggestion of creating new Canadian currency makes perfect sense, but you dismissed it unconditionally on the basis that it would result in “excessive inflation,” and without any evidence to support your statement. That, minister, is not correct, and I have been looking for an easy way to avoid saying that it is a lie, but my conscience finally dictated that there was no escape. You lied to the House of Commons, and you must know that under British parliamentary precedents you are expected to resign your portfolio forthwith.

Why the West Is Going Down the Tubes, No. 78: Morons in Academia

When I was a university student in Britain more than 50 years ago, a university generally conceded to be near, if not at, the bottom of the academic pile, was the University of Hull. To judge by the latest news from Hull, the University there remains at or near the bottom of what appears now to be an academic manure pile. Specifically, the University of Hull has taken another step on the route to becoming a fully fledged loony bin.

The evidence?

Students at the University have been told:
Essays will be marked down unless they use ‘gender-sensitive language’.
Why? Because, according to a document sent to students:
Language is important and highly symbolic
Well, yes, language is undeniably important, I mean, our whole civilization depends upon the human gift of speech, but what has that to do with the use of "gender-sensitive language," whatever "gender-sensitive language" may be?

Great Achievements of Western Civilization, No. 37: Two Billion Africans by 2050, and Moving West to Make-up for the European Reproductive Deficit

When Dutch settlers migrated to Southern Africa more than 400 years ago, the place was devoid of people other than the Kung! Bushmen, a fine-looking hunter gatherer people numbering no more than a few thousand, who scarcely impacted, or were impacted by, the immigrants.

The Brits and the French, the Portuguese and the Germans all arriving later were able to carve out large colonies in the rest of Africa, with little push-back from the sparse native population, which in 1900 totaled only just over 100 million souls spread over an area more than twice the size of China.

Micro-Aggressions and American Self-Induced Micro-Cephaly

While sticks and stones will break my bones,
Words can never hurt me. 

According to James Thompson, writing over at the Unz Review, psychologists are actively pursuing research into the phenomenon of microaggression. This is hardly suprising, although the fact that scholars consider the phenomenon of microaggression worthy of study is proof, if any further proof were needed, of the ongoing collapse of Western civilization and rationality.

Coinciding with this development in academic psychology and not unrelated to it, America has become the world’s bully nation: Americans ruthlessly kill and displace millions abroad for the sake of American global hegemony, engage in virulent hate speech directed at anyone with whom they disagree, while whining pathetically in the face of counter criticism, ridicule or hateful comment.

Trudeau's Liberals Screwing Young Canadians Big Time

Some people, I've heard, find that young Canadian workers have a poor attitude. They show up for work late, it's said — that is if they show up at all. What's more, they dress inappropriately, and they just generally don't seem to care.

Taxing Old People in Australia the Same as Young
people Could Raise $1 Billion a Year: Source
That's presumably just a small minority. Still, young people are being so thoroughly screwed by Trudeau’s Liberals that one wonders why they show up for work at all. This month's Federal budget, for example, massively increased public debt, debt that will certainly not be paid by the older generation, while massively increasing benefits to those over 64. Meantime, annual expenditure for the benefit of those under 45 has increased by about 38 cents.

The Virtues of of a Liberal

The Irish Savant has an excellent piece explaining how modern liberal-leftie-Democrats project themselves as brave anti-establishmentarians when they are, in fact, the upholders of a rigid and authoritarian establishment.

There's nothing brave these days, the Savant points out, in coming out as gay or in savaging the Church's mangy carcass. Fifty years ago it would have been. But back then the outspoken liberal of today would have been the head altar-boy ratting out the kids he saw smoking behind the shed.

The University: An Institution for the Corruption of Youth. No 37: Pandering to Fatties

 In today's enlightened times, it is no longer acceptable to refer to someone as fat: rather, they are to be recognized as the victim of an eating disorder, i.e, the disorder of eating too much. Moreover, as we learn in a report from Ottawa's Carlton University, the sight of a weight scale can be "very triggering" for fatties.

But not to worry. In the nation's capital, sensitivity prevails, and Carlton U.'s recreation and athletics department have removed the weight scale from the university's gymnasium.

Those Dirty, Rotten, Racist, Russians Want More Babies: Why Can't They Just Die Off Quietly and Replace Themselves With People From Elsewhere Like those PC Pussies in Europe and North America?

The first 45 countries, in terms of highest birth rates (out of a recognised 223) are located on the African continent. These are closely followed by Middle Eastern and Asian countries, with Europe, dwindling far behind (Monaco is in last place.) Some may say that slowing birth rates are beneficial for an over-populated world, however this is simply a picture of averages.

Generally speaking, countries with actual overpopulation are not seeing a slow down, and birthrates in European countries in particular are being propped up by migrant births. This has obvious repercussions on the future cultural make up and stability of former European nation-states.

Unbrainwashing the Brainwashed

The Irish Savant has a piece about the logical obtuseness of those indoctrinated in the Islamic faith, the story of the Jewish Holocaust, or the need for greater toleration of mass Third-World immigration to Europe and North America.

The Savant's conclusion is that brainwashing must change the chemistry of the brain in such a way as to make its victims resistant to all logical argument. That is undoubtedly correct. It is also easily understood.

How Trump Stumped the Bush-Clinton Treason Party and Set the Stage for the Second US Civil War

The US Civil War was fought over two things: cheap labor (slavery); and the import of cheap manufactured goods from England (free trade). The Yankees won, slavery was abolished, and a tariff was imposed to protect the North's infant manufacturing industries. Thus was launched the American economic miracle that made the United States the richest and most powerful nation on Earth.

But the Free Trade Agreement, signed by Bush I, the Free Trade Agreement, NAFTA, and the General Agreement on Tariffs & Trade, all signed by Clinton I,  went far toward eliminating the tariff. The Obama-sponsored TPP and the TTIP were supposed to finish the job, creating a global system of free trade that would bring American workers into direct competition with Third-World workers, many of them earning mere pennies an hour.

Pope Francis Urges Genocide of the White Race and the End of Christianity

In a report that has since been denied, Pope Francis is reported to have urged at the Vatican-run Biological Extinction Conference*:
"Christians to adopt China’s one child policy in order to “make the world more sustainable“, according to a panelist at the Vatican-run Biological Extinction Conference held earlier this week.

The pope believes that the solution to securing the world’s sustainability lies in depopulation, and the Western world must stop producing so many babies if the world is to survive beyond “the next period of darkness.”"
Fertility rates throughout the West are already below the replacement rate of 2.1, and mostly they are far below the replacement rate. Moreover, they are rapidly declining.

Le Pen Rips Merkel: Betrayer of the European Peoples, Advocate of National Submersion by Immigration, Promoter of Austerity in the Interests of German Hegemony in Europe, US Puppet

Yesterday, the Guardian had an article raising the spectre of genocidal class war precipitated by the replacement of humans with robots. But the Guardian is, to put it charitably, behind the times. There is already a genocidal class war in progress in Europe and North America, as the money power seeks to destroy the indigenous working class by a combination of job offshoring to low-wage jurisdictions and local labor replacement by mass immigration of Third Worlders willing to work for less without complaining about workplace health and safety issues.

This is the war between economic nationalists and globalists, and so far the globalists are winning hands down. Hence, in London, the capital of the United Kingdom, the English are now a minority in their own homeland. Ditto, within a decade, Birmingham, England's second city. And already in other towns and urban centers throughout Europe, the indigenous Europeans are being overwhelmed by a flood of immigrants of an alien, race, religion and culture.

Globalization and the Death of Democracy

A debate on a local (Canadian) housing blog has arisen over the question of whether it is reasonable to protect a local real estate market from price inflation due to foreign investors.

Some repudiate the idea of regulation on the grounds that "we live in a global economy." Others have objected on the ground that not all markets are regulated to maximize the welfare of Canadians, e.g., the textile industry which has been largely off-shored, and therefore it is naive to propose regulation of the real estate market.

The Death of the West: Who's Driving It, And Why

Both in America and Europe traditional beliefs, institutions, and customs are disintegrating or being transformed out of all recognition at an accelerating and for many, a terrifying rate. The upending of traditional patterns of life, the undermining of economic security for a majority of the people, and the growing fear of world war have driven deep political fissures through the Western nations.

Yet Lib or Con, Prog or Fascist, very few, it seems, understands what the political game is about.
