Má milá rozmilá, neplakej!

Život už není jinakej.

Dnes buďme ještě veselí

na naší bílé posteli!

Zejtra, co zejtra! Kdožpak ví,

Zejtra si lehneme do rakví.

NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN (ALMOST)

kingfisher25th March, 1911 : It is now illegal to export a large variety of native Australian birds or their plumage, skin or eggs. Federal legislation was gazetted today, and will come as welcome news to naturalists and anyone interested in preserving our most distinctive birds. The protection of fauna is largely a State matter, but until now there has been little done to prevent the export of birds.

Under the new law, approval will have to be sought from the Minister of Customs to take the birds out of the country, and then only if relevant state regulations have been met. The law covers such birds as emus, lorikeets, cockatoos, parrots, kingfishers, lyrebirds, albatroses, finches and others.

[ November 2012 – The illegal trade of birds into and out of Australia is going virtually unchecked, with two sweeping government investigations failing to prosecute the smugglers they identified. The investigations revealed the role of sophisticated networks of criminals trading eggs of native parrots with those of exotic parrots from South Africa, Singapore and the Philippines.

But despite having some of the toughest penalties in the world for wildlife crime, up to 10 years in jail and $100,000 fines, the alleged perpetrators were not even charged.

The previous national manager of investigations with the Australian Customs Service says that is because wildlife investigations are poorly resourced. Richard Janeczko, who retired from Customs in 2009, says the illegal trade in birds is alive and well. But he says the lack of prosecutions is because of the poor quality of evidence obtained during the investigations. ]

He was a politician

…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger

In normal times one could ignore the death of a politician, because of the de mortuis nil nisi bene saying and the principle that if you can’t say anything good, say nothing. But these are not normal times. The hypocritical Left is plumbing the depths Dr Goebbels would be ashamed of, so Malcolm Fraser, deceased, become almost a hero in their blinkered eyes because he, in his dotage, totally repudiated everything the Liberal Party of Australia used to stand for. (Somewhat similar to the other Malcolm, still alive, apparently not senile and viciously kicking his party.)

For the more balanced, non-PC, no main-stream-media-herd view I would recommend The Apotheosis of Malcolm Fraser or How hatred helped drive Malcolm Fraser to the Left.

Fog of Chaos mentioned him a few times – Spirit of compromise / October 2013; Symbolic symbols / March 2014; Double or nothing / June 2014 and As you would expect / July 2014. From Spirit of compromise: “…Pray tell me, what principles Malcolm Fraser (ex-Liberal Prime Minister) ever had? After his misunderstanding with Lloyds of London he espoused any politically correct myth, perhaps, to be charitable, without a fee. Even now, in his dotage, he campaigned for the extreme Left scatterbrain Sarah Hanson-Young. “

The sad end of life for a sad, lonely and bitter man, who had to advertise for a paid companion to take him fishing.

NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN (ALMOST)

mussolini23rd March, 1919 : Benito Mussolini, a socialist journalist who broke with the Italian Socialist Party at the beginning of the war, has formed his own party, the Fasci di Combattimento. Appealing to veterans of the war, troubled by the malaise of postwar Italy, the party’s policy is an emotive mixture of socialism and nationalism. Mussolini, son of a blacksmith and a schoolteacher, intends to fight both liberalism and communism.

A Boy Scouts’ Patrol Song

…from the quills of the dead white poets

Rudyard Kipling (1865 – 1936)

            
These are our regulations --                  
  There's just one law for the Scout           
And the first and the last, and the present and the past,
  And the future and the perfect is "Look out!"
  I, thou and he, look out!
  We, ye and they, look out!
  Though you didn't or you wouldn't
  Or you hadn't or you couldn't;
  You jolly well must look out!


Look out, when you start for the day
  That your kit is packed to your mind;
There is no use going away             
  With half of it left behind.
Look out that your laces are tight,
  And your boots are easy and stout,
Or you'll end with a blister at night.
(Chorus) All Patrols look out!

scout.lookout
Look out for the birds of the air,
  Look out for the beasts of the field --
They'll tell you how and where
  The other side's concealed.
When the blackbird bolts from the copse,
  Or the cattle are staring about,
The wise commander stops
  And (chorus) All Patrols look out!


Look out when your front is clear,
  And you feel you are bound to win.
Look out for your flank and your rear --
  That's where surprises begin.
For the rustle that isn't a rat,
  For the splash that isn't a trout,
For the boulder that may be a hat
(Chorus) All Patrols look out!


For the innocent knee-high grass,
  For the ditch that never tells,
Look out!  Look out ere you pass --
  And look out for everything else!
A sign mis-read as you run
  May turn retreat to a rout --
For all things under the sun
(Chorus) All Patrols look out!


Look out when your temper goes
  At the end of a losing game;
When your boots are too tight for your toes;
  And you answer and argue and blame.
It's the hardest part of the Law,
  But it has to be learnt by the Scout --
For whining and shirking and "jaw"
(Chorus) All Patrols look out!

NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN (ALMOST)

21st March, 1909 : Controlled panic swept the Commons today at the revelation that Germany may soon overtake Britain in naval might. Just two years ago such a suggestion would have been laughed at. The First Lord of Admiralty, Reginald McKenna, told MPs that the Government had underestimated German naval growth. New assessments were that 13 German dreadnoughts are due to be completed in 1911 alone, on top of those already in service. Although MPs agreed to plans to build new cruisers and heavily armoured destroyers along with six dreadnoughts, the Royal Navy will only have 11 of the ships by 1911. The Tory leader, Arthur Balfour, described the position as “so dangerous that it is difficult to realise all its import”, while in Berlin Admiral Tirpitz denied a British Government statement.

[More than one hundred years later we are much smarter and do not panic, in fact we do not care at all:

Speaking to the House Armed Service Committee’s Seapower and Projection Forces Subcommittee (which oversees the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps), Vice Admiral Joseph Mulloy said that China is building some “fairly amazing submarines,” both diesel- and nuclear-powered. He also noted that China is increasing the geographical area of deployment for its subs, as well as the length of time per deployment. …

In the 2014 edition of the Pentagon’s annual report to Congress on Chinese military developments, the Department of Defense said that China had “more than 60 submarines.” A spokesman for the U.S. Navy told Reuters that the U.S. has 71 commissioned submarines; the Pentagon must estimate that China’s number has now climbed into the low 70s at least. …

Nuclear-power submarines are a particular area of emphasis as China looks to improve its ability to conduct military operations outside its own near seas. China is continuing to produce Jin-class nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarines (SSBNs) and Shang-class nuclear-powered attack submarines (SSNs), and is expected to introduce new models over the next decade (the Type 096 SSBN and Type 095 guided-missile attack submarine or SSGN).”

Palmeroids

…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger

Oh, those Palmeroids! What would we do without them? Laugh at the abysmal performance of the dysfunctional Abbottoids perhaps? Ignore the Australian politicking altogether? Miss all that fun? No, not yet.

We haven’t had a good conspiracy theory on Fog of Chaos for a good while, and where, outside Obama’s America, of course, one could find a better subject than a certain Clive?

Palmer_United_Party_LogoIn April 2013 a somewhat rich fellow, a billionaire according to his counting, a multimillionaire by counting of others, created a political party in his image, called it Palmer United and six months later got himself elected to the House of Representatives. “At the same time, two candidates (Glenn Lazarus of Queensland and Jacqui Lambie of Tasmania) were elected to the Senate, alongside Australian Motoring Enthusiasts Party candidate Ricky Muir, of Victoria, who later agreed to enter into an informal alliance with the PUP. Additionally, Dio Wang of Western Australia was elected to the Senate at a special election held in April 2014, after the original senate election in the state was voided by the Court of Disputed Returns. The PUP bloc thus had four senators when new members took their seats in July 2014.”

Additionally, Palmer had two of his people in the Queensland Parliament and three in the Northern Territory Parliament.

Then it started.

In August 2014 Queensland PUP leader Alex Douglas resigned from the Party.

In September 2014 Northern Territory PUP MP Francis Xavier Kurrupuwu resigned from the Party.

In October 2014 Queensland PUP MP, Carl Judge resigned from the Party.

In November 2014 Senator Jacqui Lambie has quit the Palmer United Party. Also the same month MP Alison Anderson, PUP’s Northern Territory leader and MP Larisa Lee resigned from the party.

In March 2015 Queensland Senator Glenn Lazarus resigned from the Palmer United Party.

The reasons given were predictably selfless: “the party a “total embarrassment”, “a different view of team work”, “jobs for the boys”, “the best interests of Tasmanian constituents”, “can better serve electorate as an independent”, “could do a lot more for his electorate”

A sceptic could suggest that the re-election chances were uppermost on their minds; and a cynic that strong incentives were offered and accepted.

There is nothing the cosy duopoly of LibNats / LaborGreens hates more than a new political party with a potential. They don’t care about the predestined losers and one-issue mini parties, for the serve the purpose of pretence democracy, but worry about anything which could possibly challenge their stranglehold on power. In the last Federal elections over 3 million voters, out of about 13 million, wanted anything but the LaborGreens/ LibNats’ self-serving seneschalship.

Whether the black-ops sections of the major parties’ Sturmabteilung had anything to do with PUP’s implosion remains to be seen, but it is unlikely that they had to take any part in its abbottic performance.

Big boss himself set the tone and lit the slow fuse by contradicting himself, sometimes more than once in one interview. The policies, such as they were, became a dog’s breakfast of half-baked thought bubbles. (Hmm) The extremely erratic ex-corporal Jacqui Lambie thought that what is the sauce for the gander, could also be a sauce for her. Other Palmeroids were not much better, though if their understanding of the Australian Government system was based solely on watching the Parliamentary broadcasts they could be forgiven for believing that anything goes.

Some may mourn the PAP’s demise for the humour the party provided, but all the clowns are still there, hanging onto their parliamentary pensions and hell-bent on causing as much mischief to their voters as they possibly can.

CAUTION – After the elections they received almost no friendly media reports, only negative and often vicious ones. Both the Left and the Right journalists prefer their politicians in proper kennels, salivating for their every misspelled or mispronounced word of post-modernist wisdom. It it thus possible that the Palmeroids are not as bad as they appear.

Mr Palmer’s company Mineralogy and Mr Palmer personally are being sued by the Communist Chinese government-owned CITIC Pacific for allegedly misapplied money – instead of running a port, $12 million was used to run the electoral campaign. But what about a possibility that money were indeed intended to acquire a tame political party, and then something went wrong. Perhaps Palmer proved to be not tame enough, or that some other branch of the Chinese apparatus decided that it is not necessary to suborn all the politicians. Palmer, of course, would be unlikely to use that in his defence.

With Palmeroids practically gone let’s see what LibNats / LaborGreens will do to the Liberal Democratic Party (523,831 votes) and Senator David Leyonhjelm. LDP platform should make them (and the Chinese communists) shudder.

  • Support of extensive privatisation and deregulation: end government ownership of business enterprises including the ABC, SBS, Australia Post, Medibank Private, electricity generation and public transport services
  • Deregulate industry to the greatest extent possible to build its international competitiveness
  • Support of a 20% flat rate income tax
  • Support of extensive free markets and free trade
  • Support of the most efficient and effective electricity generation, with no options off the table
  • Support of market over government responses to climate change

  • Support of citizen-initiated referenda, fixed parliamentary terms, recall elections, and voluntary voting
  • Maximisation of freedom of travel administered by a general immigration tariff on all non-humanitarian immigrants from other nations to replace the existing quota system
  • Support of free migration agreements with more nations such as the current Australia/New Zealand agreement
  • Unauthorised arrivals temporarily detained for health and security checks, transparent process for determining refugee status, community release under bail-like conditions while status is determined
  • Removal of sin taxes (including for alcohol and tobacco)
  • Support of same-sex marriage
  • Equality before the law, including opposition to affirmative action
  • Support of property owners’ rights
  • Support of fishing and shooting rights

  • Decriminalise the means to self defense (including pepper spray, tasers and firearms under some circumstances)
  • Opposition to government-funded foreign aid, other than short-term humanitarian relief, in favour of private charity
  • Support of a free and independent Tibet and East Turkestan, and restoring official recognition of the Republic of China

No worries

…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger

Since the time he got elected in November 2008 Obama has been ‘grooming’ (to use the currently fashionable term) his American subjects for more permanent dictatorship. What the packs of Muslims, with relative impunity, do to prepubescent girls and boys, the adult Americans, 47% of them, like to have done to themselves.

The presidential elections are not due until November 2016 but the US media frenzy would, to a person from another planet, indicate that they are imminent. The whipped up hysteria is to reassure the voters that the elections matter, and, in fact, some Americans still naively believe that it can make a difference. To some limited, cosmetic extent, it does, but the choice is basically between two types of “it-makes-me-feel-so-good” rhetoric.

The kabuki clash of the Clinton and Bush clans may make a good theatre for the feeble-minded, fantastic profits for the providers of advertising space and “sell newspapers”, but makes little discernible difference to American citizens.

As far as I am aware, most commentators missed one possibility, in my humble opinion not entirely fanciful.

Article Two of the United States Constitution stipulates that for a person to serve as President, the individual must be a natural-born citizen of the United States, … The Twenty-second Amendment to the Constitution also sets a term limit: a President cannot serve more than two terms. “

The 22nd Amendment was approved only in March 1947 by the Republican-controlled 80th Congress, and only in February 1951 enough States ratified it. Prior to that it was only a convention.

obama.con.sueHussain Obama almost certainly breached the first requirement, and there is nothing and nobody to prevent him from breaching the remaining one. The Constitution never had stopped him from doing what he wanted; invariably to the detriment of freedom, democracy and the pursuit of happiness. His anti-constitutional, executive ‘ukase‘ outrages provoke only mild verbal slaps from the Republican legislators and never lead to any action. True, Obama lost a few court cases, but he either ignores or appeals to infinity the court decisions. The Republicans, for reasons of their own, I suspect venal, can’t bring themselves to stop him by something so obvious as an impeachment. When the audacity of the Anti-American-in-Chief meets the apathy of the Americans the result is a continuous disaster.

Obama can simply ignore the 22nd Amendment. So no more worries, Honest Hillary, and other hopefulls, you are likely to became even more irrelevant.

NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN (ALMOST)

Henriette_Caillaux_191417th March, 1914 : Madame Caillaux, wife of the French Finance Minister, was invited to dine at the Italian Embassy. Instead, she went to the offices of the Le Figaro newspaper, demanded to see the editor, Gaston Calmette, and shot him dead. She then coolly sent a message to the Embassy saying she was held up. The right-wing Le Figaro is attacking her husband, Joseph Caillaux, a radical, for planning to tax the rich. Calmette threatened to publish compromising letters written by Caillaux to his wife.

[ I am not trying to suggest that violent dealings with inconvenient journalists is a Parisian tradition.

The letter seemed to suggest that improprieties had been committed by Caillaux – in it he appeared to admit having orchestrated the rejection of a tax bill while publicly pretending to support its passage.” Yes, nothing new under the sun.

She was defended by the prominent attorney Fernand Labori who convinced the jury that her crime, which she did not deny, was not a premeditated act but that her uncontrollable female emotions resulted in a crime of passion. The belief that women were not as strong emotionally as men resulted in her acquittal on 28 July 1914. .. In the early 1930s she was awarded a diploma of the École du Louvre for her thesis on the sculptor Jules Dalou. She died in 1943.”]

NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN (ALMOST)

16th March, 1907 : As women in Britain continue their struggle for the vote, women in Finland had a real taste of political power today when they won their first seats in the Finnish Parliament. The deputies-elect belong mostly to the majority Social Democratic Party, but come from all social classes. Finland became the first European country to give women the vote last year. The Finnish women’s triumph is expected to add momentum to the suffragettes’ campaign in countries like Britain and America.

[ Figures for 2005 released by the state statistics agency showed alcohol killed more people aged 15 to 64 than cardiovascular disease or cancer. Almost as many women died of alcohol-related causes as breast cancer last year. About 2,000 Finns died of alcohol-related causes last year – 150 more than in previous years. Each Finn drank on average the equivalent of 10.5 litres (22 pints) of pure alcohol in 2005. Alcohol was also found to be a contributory factor in suicides, and intoxication is involved in nearly one in four deaths caused by accidents or violence, the figures showed.]

Not the pilot

…from the quills of the dead white poets

Walt Whitman (1819 – 1892)

us.flag.tattered

Not the pilot has charged himself to bring his ship into port,

though beaten back and many time baffled;

Not the pathfinder penetrating inland weary and long,

By deserts parch’d, snows chill’d, rivers wet, perseveres

till he reaches his destination,

More than I have charged myself, heeded or unheeded,

to compose a march for these States,

For a battle-call, rousing to arms if need be, years, centuries hence.

Another broken promise

…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger

Tony Abbott’s fumblings show that either he is taking his voters for granted, or, deep down doesn’t wish to have the responsibility of governing. In my opinion (previously expressed here on Fog of Chaos The Double or nothing, Abbott’s promises and The problem) the latter is correct, probably because he became aware that he simply doesn’t have what it takes – guts.

The conservative cynics now question the motives beyond even so far successful policies – like stopping the boats – by saying that the Coalition realised that illegal immigrants are future Labor voters and thus for the reason of self-preservation had to stop them. Should the illegal arrivals be likely Coalition voters, the Labor and Greens would be stopping them, of course.

The carbon tax was abolished, which is good, but the Coalition’s Renewable Energy Targets remain. I refrain from writing anything defamatory, but we know that while some big businesses love the carbon tax, the others, equally big, don’t. Pecunia non olet, and neither do lucrative directorships upon a retirement from a public office.

One of the big Coalition election promises was to reduce the red tape. The policy, still unashamedly on the Liberal party website:

The Coalition understands small business and the vital contribution the sector makes to communities and our economy. We also understand the challenges and road-blocks that stand in the way of small business success.

An elected Coalition government will reduce the red tape burden and compliance costs on business by $1 billion each year, including by giving small business a better way to pay superannuation and implementing a fair paid parental leave scheme where the government does the paperwork.”

The post-elections reality is different:

redtapeIn February 2015 the Institute of Public Affairs commissioned a survey, where Australian residents over the age of 18 were asked: In your opinion is there too much government red tape on Australian business? 48% said yes, 18% no and 34% did not know. I guessed that that 34% comprised university students, artists, welfare recipients and such like. I was surprised by the high No response, before realising that over 16% (1,908,200 people) of Australia’s workforce is paid for being in ‘public service’. And then there are journalists pining for more government controls.

The general public opinion is one thing; the opinions of the people at the coalface, i.e. struggling daily with the stifling bureaucracy, likely LibNats voters, another.

The Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s 2015 National Red Tape Survey, released in February 2015, found that “74% of businesses believe that regulation has had a negative impact on their business and 96.7% of businesses reported that the regulatory burden on their business was either the same or higher than it was 12 months ago”.

Abbott is doing his best to get the Labor re-elected.

The low of high education

 

…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger

Three examples from the institutions of higher learning:

One – The Nazi book burnings were a campaign conducted by the German Student Union to ceremonially burn books in Nazi Germany and Austria in the 1930s. The books targeted for burning were those viewed as being subversive or as representing ideologies opposed to Nazism. These included books written by Jewish, pacifist, classical liberal, anarchist, socialist, and communist authors, among others.

Two – Students at the University of California, Irvine, have voted for a more “inclusive space” by banning the American flag on part of the school’s campus.

Under resolution R50-70 passed Thursday, the Associated Students of University of California, Irvine (ASUCI) voted to remove all flags – including Old Glory – from a student government work room on campus, according to the ASUCI website.

A portion of the resolution reads: “(F)lags construct paradigms of conformity and sets homogenized standards for others to obtain which in this country typically are idolized as freedom, equality, and democracy.”

Authored by student Matthew Guevara, the resolution goes on to state that since “the American flag has been flown in instances of colonialism and imperialism”, its display “does not express only selective aspects of its symbolism but the entire spectrum of its interpretation.”

Three – Led by a professor, Sydney University students go wild at a lecture presented by retired British military officer Colonel Richard Kemp:

Kemp began his talk with a brief explanation of his career and a joke about England’s cricket loss to Bangladesh on Monday. He went on to discuss non-state militant groups in Ireland and Afghanistan and the obligations of soldiers when engaging with civilians and civilian groups. Before he could go into any detail or discuss any other issues, he was interrupted by over a dozen students bursting into the lecture hall screaming “Richard Kemp, you can’t hide, you support genocide.”

A demonstrator with a megaphone drowned out any attempts by the moderator to get the lecture back on track. Protestors wrestled with security guards who had asked them to leave and were then forced to remove them. Protestors stood on chairs, began to push students and shout loudly at those who objected to their behaviour.

These freedom fans were encouraged by someone who has “spent the past 15 years researching, developing, teaching and training in peace journalism,” whatever the hell that is:

Professor Jake Lynch, the director of the Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies and an ardent opponent of Israel, shouted in the faces of students, including at a senior officer of the Jewish student union. He then proceeded to stand on chairs and film attendees.

Lynch screamed that attempts to remove the protestors was a violent attack on freedom of speech by security guards.

Racism rampant

massieMychal S. Massie is an ordained minister who spent 13 years in full-time Christian Ministry. He was founder and president of the non-profit “In His Name Ministries.” He is the former National Chairman of the conservative black think tank, Project 21-The National Leadership Network of Black Conservatives and a former member of its parent think tank, the National Center for Public Policy Research, i.e. probably a Christian and a typical racist, (image left) who does not like Obama:

The other evening on my twitter, a person asked me why I didn’t like the Obamas. Specifically I was asked: “I have to ask, why do you hate the Obamas? It seems personal, not policy related. You even dissed (disrespect) their Christmas family picture.”

 The truth is I do not like the Obamas, what they represent, their ideology, and I certainly do not like his policies and legislation. I’ve made no secret of my contempt for the Obamas. As I responded to the person who asked me the aforementioned question, I don’t like them because they are committed to the fundamental change of my/our country into what can only be regarded as a Communist state.

obama.change I don’t hate them per definition, but I condemn them because they are the worst kind of racialists, they are elitist Leninists with contempt for traditional America . They display disrespect for the sanctity of the office he holds, and for those who are willing to admit same, Michelle Obama’s raw contempt for white America is transpicuous.

 I don’t like them because they comport themselves as emperor and empress. I expect, no I demand respect, for the Office of President, and a love of our country and her citizens, from the leader entrusted with the governance of same. President and Mrs. Reagan displayed an unparalleled love for the country and her people. The Reagans made Americans feel good about themselves and about what we could accomplish.

 His arrogance by appointing 32 leftist czars and constantly bypassing Congress is impeachable. Eric Holder is probably the MOST incompetent and arrogant DOJ head to ever hold the job. Could you envision President Reagan instructing his Justice Department to act like jack-booted thugs?

 Presidents are politicians and all politicians are known and pretty much expected to manipulate the truth, if not outright lie, but even using that low standard, the Obamas have taken lies,dishonesty, deceit, mendacity, subterfuge and obfuscation to new depths. They are verbally abusive to the citizenry, and they display an animus for civility.

 I do not like them, because they both display bigotry overtly, as in the case of Harvard Professor Louis Gates, when he accused the Cambridge Police of acting stupidly, and her code speak pursuant to now being able to be proud of America . I view that statement and that Mind set as an insult to those who died to provide a country where a Kenyan, his illegal alien relatives, and his alleged progeny, could come and not only live freely, but rise to the highest, most powerful, position in the world.

 Michelle Obama is free to hate and disparage whites because Americans of every description paid with their blood to ensure her right to do that. I have a saying, that “the only reason a person hides things, is because they have something to hide.” No president in history has spent over a million dollars to keep his records and his past sealed.

 And what the two of them have shared has been proven to be lies. He lied about when and how they met, he lied about his mother’s death and problems with insurance, Michelle lied to a crowd pursuant to nearly $500,000 bank stocks they inherited from his family. He has lied about his father’s military service, about the civil rights movement, ad nausea. He lied to the world about the Supreme Court in a State of the Union address.

 He berated and publicly insulted a sitting Congressman. He has surrounded himself with the most rabidly, radical, socialist academicians today. He opposed rulings that protected women and children that even Planned Parenthood did not seek to support. He is openly hostile to business and aggressively hostile to Israel.

 His wife treats being the First Lady as her personal American Express Black Card (arguably the most prestigious credit card in the world). I condemn them because, as people are suffering, losing their homes, their jobs, their retirements, he and his family are arrogantly showing off their life of entitlement – as he goes about creating and fomenting class warfare.

 I don’t like them, and I neither apologize nor retreat from my public condemnation of them and of his policies. We should condemn them for the disrespect they show our people, for his willful and unconstitutional actions pursuant to obeying the Constitutional parameters he is bound by, and his willful disregard for Congressional authority.

 Dislike for them has nothing to do with the color of their skin; it has everything to do with their character, behavior, attitudes, and policies. And I have open scorn for their constantly playing the race card.

 I could go on, but let me conclude with this. I condemn in the strongest possible terms the media for refusing to investigate them, as they did President Bush and President Clinton, and for refusing to label them for what they truly are. There is no scenario known to man, whereby a white president and his wife could ignore laws, flaunt their position, and lord over the people, as these two are permitted out of fear for their color.

 As I wrote in a syndicated column titled, “Nero In The White House” – Never in my life, inside or outside of politics, have I witnessed such dishonesty in a political leader.

 He is the most mendacious political figure I have ever witnessed. Even by the low standards of his presidential predecessors, his narcissistic, contumacious arrogance is unequaled. Using Obama as the bar, Nero would have to be elevated to sainthood.

 Many in America wanted to be proud when the first person of color was elected president, but instead, they have been witness to a congenital liar, a woman who has been ashamed of America her entire life, failed policies, intimidation, and a commonality hitherto not witnessed in political leaders. He and his wife view their life at our expense as an entitlement – while America ‘s people go homeless, hungry and unemployed.”

Misogynist* feministas

…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger

Forget cliterectomy and other joys of Muslim womanhood; the harpies clique pretending to represent all women has more important matters to ponder. For example TV ads – Fog of Chaos The march of the feministas. It pains me to write this, but have the women, the real women ever considered the damage those harpies do to them? Then, of course, have the workers ever considered the damage the bikie-gangs-coddling trade union apparatchiks are doing to them?

But to the important, at least to those pitiful excuses for the fairer sex, matter. Some obscure Indonesian firm is manufacturing feministas-offensive shirts.

washing.instructionsWashing instructions: Give this shirt to a woman. It’s her job,” Salvo Sports printed on the shirts of Indonesian Super League team Pusamania Borneo.

The instructions rapidly drew criticism on social media.

The company offered an apology on Sunday, International Women’s Day, after being inundated with complaints.

“The message is simply, instead of washing it in the wrong way, you might as well give it to a lady because they are more capable,” Salvo Sports posted on Twitter.

“There is no intention to humiliate women. In contrast [we want to tell the men] learn from women how to take care of clothes,” it said.

It added that the company wanted to apologise profusely for any misinterpretations.

One learns something new every day:

  1. The Indonesian men, predominantly Muslim and at least in their own opinion very macho, wash their own shirts.

  1. Some of them can’t manage to do so.

  2. In the opinion of the Salvo Sports PR salvage person (a woman?), Indonesian women are capable of washing clothes; ladies more so.

  3. Indonesians apologise as much as Obama.

The statistics from 2011 show that the Indonesian female unemployment ( age 15 to 24 years) was 21%. Who knows what it is today. So what’s so wrong with washing shirts? Most men can manage.

NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN (ALMOST)

nude.beach10th March, 1912 : It seems that no one wants to be left out of the bitter fight over the morality of mixed seaside bathing. The Reverend W Goyen, of the Presbyterian Church, warned bathers today to stay away from “the wiper” of “promiscuous hoodlums” to be found on some beaches. However, there was no evil in families or good friends bathing together. Earlier this week, the Prime Minister, Andrew Fisher, and the leader of the Catholic archdiocese of Melbourne, Archbishop Thomas Carr, also waded into the dispute.

Mr Fisher said he had seen no signs of “hideous immorality” at the beach. He did not think a dose of cold water was conducive to moral lapses. Archbishop Carr said mixed bathing was an abomination. It showed contempt for women and for the veil of modesty that was the great protection of the gentler sex. Last Tuesday, a Methodist conference also protested against the practice.

[ Yeah, the times, they are a changin’ and; with officially only 2% of Muslim population, thought mostly in the critical electorates, Reverend Goyen and Archbishop Carr may finally, posthumously, get their way. ]

True blue Halal

 …from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger

halal.austThe people interested in Australia’s future undoubtedly noticed more and more of the so called halal certification of consumer products. Muslims comprise 2% of population, i.e. about 460 000 people, and out of that about a half would be serious about halal food. You can read more on Halal Choices.

Many also noticed the silence of the main stream media lambs; lambs vis a vis Islam, hyenas vis a vis freedom and democracy. And our politicians? Spineless as usual. Mr Pickering has on his website Pickering Post a number of articles on the subject, though his site is often experiencing some difficulties, possibly caused by the Australian Federal Police or some other politicians protecting agency.

NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN (ALMOST)

mideast.post.WWI9th March, 1916 : Britain and France have begun planning the division of the postwar remnants of Turkey’s Near East empire into spheres of influence. Sir Mark Sykes and Georges Picot are the officials charged with the task of redrawing the map.

Britain will assume control over Palestine and Mesopotamia while the French will run Syria. Some areas will be allowed to pass directly into the hands of Arab people, though this is unlikely to satisfy their ambitions, or to allay suspicion about the motives of the Europeans.

The main concern of the Foreign Office is to contain the threat from Egypt, while the French are concerned with Syria. M. Georges Leygues, a prominent French diplomat, remarked: “We shall only achieve control of the Mediterranean if Syria comes under our influence”.

/ About hundred years later it seems that only Putin remembers that/

Russia, too, is closely involved in deciding the future of the Eastern Mediterranean. Sykes and Picot are apparently in agreement that Constantinople and the Straits are very important to Russia, a near neighbour of Turkey. The Petrograd Government insists that Russian interests are taken into account in the post-war settlement.

[ Unfortunately for Russia imperialist ambitions, Germany threw a spaner into the machinery by sending Lenin and his pseudo-pacifists in a sealed carriage to Russia]
