3. In Canada, like in Holland, we have moved from unfashionable, to taboo, and moving quickly towards downright illegal, to actually oppose any communist government policy.

We see it manifest in the Netherlands where the leader of the largest opposition party, Geert Wilders, has been tried in a criminal court three times for presenting opposition immigration policies. The narrative driven Dutch government wants unlimited Islamic immigration, and Geert does not. This has resulted in the same charges three times. Democracy is a non-starter if the opposition cannot have alternative views to the government. Of course its important to remember that this only applies when those alternative views are not communist in nature. If they are, they are welcomed.

Below, an example of this exact thing in play in Canada:

5. Here is an excellent example of why “extremism” is not the problem. Islam is. The degree to which a muslim is adherent to Islam is a problem indeed, because the doctrine is problematic. But below is a video of a sect which is extreme by nature. Yet I would never hesitate to live near one and interact at any level, except possibly at meals.

6. Iran reselling captured Yazdi sex slaves.

Young Yazidi sex slaves kidnapped by ISIS in Iraq are being held in Iran and are up for sale. The girls were transferred to Iran by Iranian soldiers from the Syrian city of Kobani, which was once a stronghold of ISIS.


According to Iraqi Yazidi activist Ali Elchansuri, there is a significant number of kidnapped Yazidi girls – and boys— being held in Iran for the last two years.


At present, two of the children have been positively identified. They are both girls, ages 13-14, and were kidnapped by ISIS when the terror group took over the Sinjar region in Iraq in the summer of 2014. During that siege, most of the men and older boys were killed and the women and girls — some as young as six — were taken as sex slaves. The younger boys were made into ISIS fighters.

Iranian officials will only release the children after they have been identified – and for a price.


Speaking to Sputnik News Arabic, Elchansuri said, “The source of this information asked me to come to Iran and said he would set up a meeting for me with the head of the orphanage where they are being held, and if I recognize them, I can take them. But the same source told me that his ‘friend’ will demand $20,000 for each girl – meaning $40,000 for both girls.”

7. Indian Navy on Alert as Intel Suggests JeM Training Terrorists to Conduct Seaborne Attack

New Delhi (Sputnik): India’s Naval Chief Admiral Karambir Singh claims that the military possesses intelligence that the banned Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) group is training terrorists in order to conduct a seaborne attack on India.


India’s naval chief has said that coastal security has been put on high alert due to the received information.

“We have intelligence that the underwater wing of terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed is being trained. We are keeping complete track on this and we assure you, we are on high alert. We will not let anything happen in the country.


We are fully alert. These guys are just being trained for an underwater attack”, Admiral Singh told reporters on the side-lines of an event in western Pune.

9. Forbes: Why Everything They Say About The Amazon, Including That It’s The “Lungs Of The World,” Is Wrong

The increase in fires burning in Brazil set off a storm of international outrage last week. Celebrities, environmentalists, and political leaders blame Brazilian president, Jair Bolsonaro, for destroying the world’s largest rainforest, the Amazon, which they say is the “lungs of the world.”


Singers and actors including Madonna and Jaden Smith shared photos on social media that were seen by tens of millions of people. “The lungs of the Earth are in flames,” said actor Leonardo DiCaprio. “The Amazon Rainforest produces more than 20% of the world’s oxygen,” tweeted soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo. “The Amazon rain forest — the lungs which produce 20% of our planet’s oxygen — is on fire,” tweeted French President Emanuel Macron.


And yet the photos weren’t actually of the fires and many weren’t even of the Amazon. The photo Ronaldo shared was taken in southern Brazil, far from the Amazon, in 2013. The photo that DiCaprio and Macron shared is over 20 years old. The photo Madonna and Smith shared is over 30. Some celebrities shared photos from Montana, India, and Sweden.

To their credit, CNN and New York Times debunked the photos and other misinformation about the fires. “Deforestation is neither new nor limited to one nation,” explainedCNN. “These fires were not caused by climate change,” notedThe Times. 

10. Melanie Phillips on President Trump’s highly accurate and even important statement about Jewish people who vote Democrat.

[…] The Pew Research center has shown that while 79 percent of Republicans say they back Israel against the Palestinians, only 27 percent of Democrats share that view.

And now the party is embracing outright anti-Zionists and Jew-bashers such as congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, whose proposed visit to Israel this month was aborted after the Israeli government decided that their itinerary was designed solely to incite hatred and do Israel harm. So the very last party that any supposedly “Israel-first” Jew would vote for would be the Democrats.


The full context of what President Trump said made it abundantly clear that this “dual loyalty” interpretation of his words simply didn’t stack up. Commenting on Omar’s call to cut aid to Israel, Trump said:


“Five years, the concept of even talking about this, even three years ago, of cutting off aid to Israel because of two people that hate Israel and hate Jewish people, I can’t believe we’re even having this conversation. Where has the Democratic Party gone? Where have they gone where they are defending these two people over the State of Israel? I think any Jewish people that vote for a Democrat, I think it shows either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty.”


Trump was thus criticizing Democrat-voting Jews not for their overriding loyalty to Israel but, on the contrary, for supporting a party that has become an enemy of Israel. […]

Thank you M., Richard, EB., Johnny U., Chris J., Wrath of Khan, EB., Ava Lon, and all who contributed to this work. Look forward to another DSA exposing video tomorrow, with an elected city council who actively works to defund his own city’s police entirely.

Remember real comedy? Before the West succumbed to the communist narrative rather than actual rule of law and objective thought?

  1. 5. “But below is a video of a sect which is extreme by nature. Yet I would never hesitate to live near one and interact at any level, except possibly at meals.”

    When cults are small, there is ‘no compulsion in religion.’

    Then – unchecked by Hate Speech – whenever a monk passes you by, you will kneel.

    Child abuse, the removal of the soul. To be unable to follow their own religion and therefore seek what they do not have.

    Whatever collective God or Love is offered to control and protect the Order and the Next Life, they fall very short of your own eyes to see.

    • “It took years before Ben was even able to kill a mosquito. If he was woken up by a buzzing in the middle of the night, he would drag himself out of bed, find a glass, capture the insect alive and release it out the window. Simultaneously, he might have mumbled a mantra, for example the one attributed to the Buddha of Compassion: om mani padme hum. “True joy can only be found by seeking happiness for others instead of oneself”, “treat every living being as if it was your own mother – even the tiniest insect”: such quotes were simply part of Ben’s system, because he had been raised “buddhistically” – in Nyima Dzong in the south of France.”

      • “It took years before Ben was even able to kill a mosquito…”

        And maybe never to defend his country. Such is the equal life to a mosquito transferred on to the wicked.

        The Jesus he should be (I Am Who I Am) turned into the idolatry of the Last Days where only then, will he ‘be a man,’ in Heaven, and never will.

        To watch a mother cry over her daughter losing her mind for peace, a peace on Earth, that never will.

        To have the Manson Family as neighbors. For you will be blamed for everything always turning into poverty.

    • JAINISM ( wikipedia )

      […]Jainism has between four and five million followers, with most Jains residing in India.

      […]Of all the major Indian religions, Jainism has had the strongest austerity-driven ascetic tradition, and it is an essential part of a mendicant’s spiritual pursuits.

      Ascetic life may include nakedness symbolizing non-possession of even clothes, fasting, body mortification, penance, and other austerities,

      […]Jainism considers meditation (dhyana) a necessary practice, but its goals are very different from those in Buddhism and Hinduism.

      […]In the Digambara tradition, a male human being is considered closest to the apex with the potential to achieve his soul’s liberation from rebirths through asceticism. Women must gain karmic merit, to be reborn as man, and only then can they achieve spiritual liberation in the Digambara sect of Jainism.

      […]Jain monastic rules have either required no clothes or white clothes and they have disagreed on the legitimacy of the wooden or empty gourd as the begging bowl by Jain monks.

      The Jain monastic rules have encouraged the use of mouth cover, as well as monastic equipment such as the Dandasan – a long stick with woollen threads – to gently remove ants and insects that may come in their path.



      HISTORY OF JAINISM ( wikipedia )

      […]The two main sects of Jainism, the Digambara and the Svetambara sect, likely started forming about the 3rd century BCE and the schism was complete by about 5th century CE. These sects later subdivided into several sub-sects such as Sthanakavasi and Terapanthis.

      Jainism co-existed with Buddhism and Hinduism in ancient and medieval India. Many of its historic temples were built near the Buddhist and Hindu temples in 1st millennium CE.

      After the 12th-century, the temples, pilgrimage and naked ascetic tradition of Jainism suffered persecution during the Muslim rule[…]

      […]The Muslim invaders who conquered parts of Northern India, like Mahmud Ghazni (1001 CE) and Mohammad Ghori (1175 CE), oppressed the Jaina community.

      Jainism faced persecution during and after the Muslim conquests on the Indian subcontinent.

      This period witnessed the destruction of Jain temples, their pilgrimage centers and other forms of persecution.

      […]Jain scholars of the Mughal era debated religious ideas with Muslim scholars. Hiravijaya, in chapters thirteen and fourteen of Hirasaubhagya for example, presents the interaction and views of the two religions. The text mentions him stating to a Muslim sheikh, that “a creator god (called khuda) is impossible, one who presides over others, allots reward and punishment”, instead it is karma that determines man’s ultimate destiny. He asserts that the two religions are different, Islam involves violence, while Jainism is based on compassion.

      According to Paul Dundas, in and after the 12th century, Muslim destruction caused Jain scholars to revisit their theory of Ahimsa (non-violence). For example, Jinadatta Suri in the 12th century, wrote during a time of widespread destruction of Jain temples and blocking of Jaina pilgrimage by Muslim armies, that “anybody engaged in a religious activity who was forced to fight and kill somebody” in self-defense would not lose merit

      […]Colonial era Christian missions wrote about Jainism, but typically stereotyping it as “a coldly austere religion of pure asceticism, with no ‘heart’, preoccupied only with not harming microorganisms”.

      […]The British colonial rule era, according to von Glasenapp in 1925, allowed Jains to pursue their religion without persecutions they had faced before.

      […]The British colonial government in India, as well as Indian princely states, passed laws that made monks roaming naked in streets a crime, one that led to arrest. This law particularly impacted the Digambara tradition monks.

      […]The colonial-era laws that banned naked monks were abolished after India gained independence.



      Along with Hinduism and Buddhism, Jainism is one of the three most ancient Indian religious traditions still in existence and an integral part of South Asian religious belief and practice.

      While often employing concepts shared with Hinduism and Buddhism, the result of a common cultural and linguistic background, the Jain tradition must be regarded as an independent phenomenon rather than as a Hindu sect or a Buddhist heresy, as some earlier Western scholars believed.

      […]Jainism has been confined largely to India, although the recent migration of Indians to other, predominantly English-speaking countries has spread its practice to many Commonwealth nations and to the United States. Precise statistics are not available, but it is estimated that there are more than four million Jains, the vast majority of whom live in India.

      Scholars of religion generally hold that Jainism originated in the 7th–5th century BCE in the Ganges basin of eastern India, the scene of intense religious speculation and activity at that time.


    • I don’t fully understand your comment PC, but I fully get that once the Jain’s have enough numbers they may start to demand that others live according to their precepts or punishment will follow.

      And I think if that is what you are saying, you are almost certainly correct.

      My point was that Islamic actions are blamed on extremism. Which is untrue as Jains are VERY extremist. The problem with Islam is Islam. To quote Sam Harris:

      “The problem with Islamic fundamentalism is the fundamentals of Islam”.

      Same is true of socialism for that matter. No amount of it is good.

      But yeah, I believe that Jainism like other forms of Buddhism I have seen, will become corrupted. North American Tibetan Buddhism, some sects at least, are very Marxist in nature, favouring the blank slate model, Skinner over Jung, or Konrad Lorenz for example. Blank Slate is intrinsic to communism. It is the scientism answer to evolution.

      So yes, enough Jains and we will all be punished fro our place in the ecosystem. Jains, like communists, seem to forget that we are also natural and also have a place in the chain of life on Earth.

  2. The articles and videos show the direction that the world is headed in, we are going to face major violence in the future and the ignored and suppressed lovers of freedom rebel. The future is looking bleak but I am certain that in the long run freedom will win out over the tyrants.

  3. I was having a conversation with myself while watching this. The 80’s are really a blur to me because my husband and I spent the 1st part of the decade, 80-84, going to school. We had a small black and white TV that you had to hang tin foil off the antennae to get anything. The 2nd part of the decade we were having children. I did not crave entertainment. What I craved was silence… I took up needlepoint and would bath in the emotional silence when the children were asleep. So, I really know nothing about the popular culture of the 80’s.
