Most notably, Islam and its effects on Classical Civilization, and various forms of leftism from Soviet era communism, to postmodernism and all the flavours of galloping statism and totalitarianism such as Nazism and Fascism which are increasingly snuffing out the classical liberalism which created our near, miraculous civilization the West has been building since the time of Socrates.

This document was written around the time this site was created, for those who wish to understand what this site is about. And while our understanding of the world and events has grown since then, the basic ideas remain sound and true to the purpose.

  1. The Definition of Insanity Regarding Mass Murder

    Christopher C. Hull
    April 21, 2021 Updated: April 27, 2021


    Insanity is repeating the same mistakes and expecting different results, according to the Hazelden Foundation (not according to Einstein, for the record).

    The latest horrifying examples: Atlanta; Boulder, Colorado; Orange, California; Rock Hill, South Carolina; and Indianapolis.

    Take just Atlanta, for instance. On March 16, Robert Aaron Long shot and killed eight people in the Atlanta metro area, telling public officials he was a sex addict. When police arrested him, he was on his way to Florida to shoot up the porn industry as well. Yet in the shooting’s wake, too many policymakers repeated the same mistakes and expected different results.

    For instance, like many Democratic members of Congress, Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) charged in response to the mass murder that “white supremacy” is a “threat to all of our communities, and we must call out the targeted, violent attacks on our AAPI neighbors.”

    (For those wondering, in this case, one assumes “AAPI” refers to the new politically correct acronym for Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.)

    Similarly, Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) tried to pin the shooting on President Donald Trump discussing the China virus: “One year ago, we had a former President and White House officials inflaming hate against Asian Americans. Some elected officials continue to use ethnic identifiers in describing the virus, which adds fuel to the hate. If you are one of those officials, please stop. #StopAsianHate.”

    Likewise, America’s mainstream m

  4. – HOW TO CLOSE DOWN a FB or TWITTER account –

    Facebook has shut down a pro-Israel page with over 75 million followers, amid the worst conflict in the Gaza strip in years.

    The ‘Jerusalem Prayer Team’ page, which was established in 2002 and was the largest Christian Facebook page, was shut down by the platform on Friday.

    Dr. Mike Evans, the page’s founder, claimed that critics of the page posted ‘more than a million’ comments and then denied doing so, flagging their own posts as spam.

    Speaking to the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN), Evans claimed there was ‘an organized attempt by radical Islamic organizations to achieve this objective.’

    ‘They posted over a million comments on our site, and then had the people contact Facebook saying that they never posted to the site. That was a complete scam and fraud. It was a very clever, deceptive plan by Islamic radicals.’

    Did “America First” conservatives really “win” the battle over the GOP’s congressional leadership last week? Old-guard Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney may be out of power as the House Republican Conference chair. But her replacement, New York GOP Rep. Elise Stefanik, is a swampy shape-shifter whose campaign coffers are filled with open borders, radical social liberal, Wall Street cash.

    The multibillion-dollar moneyman behind Stefanik’s rise to power is Big Business oligarch Paul Singer. He founded the hedge fund Elliott Management and propped up the political bids of several Republican women who rode the gender card to victory: Stefanik in New York’s 21st congressional district; anti-Trump establishment Republican Barbara Comstock in Virginia’s 10th congressional district; and John McCain loyalist and Trump flip-flopper Martha McSally, who held Arizona’s second congressional district before losing her 2020 special election to retain the Senate seat she was appointed to when former Sen. Jon Kyl stepped down as the late McCain’s replacement.

  8. How President Biden Emboldened Hamas, Islamic Jihad

    A number of decisions taken by the Biden administration have apparently emboldened Iran and a number of its terrorist proxies. First was the decision to revoke the designation of the Iranian-backed Houthi group in Yemen as a foreign terrorist organization. Pictured: Houthi forces in Yemen’s capital Sanaa on April 8, 2021.

    A number of decisions taken by the Biden administration — who were handed peace in the Middle East, US energy independence, secure borders, the blueprint for a booming economy, and American adversaries such as China, Russia and Iran on the defensive — have managed, in four short months, to blow most of that up.

    Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an has grossly profited, in domestic politics, from every form and period of violence in the Arab-Israeli dispute in the past two decades. But he will not get anything from this year’s clashes between terrorists and a legitimate state. There are no elections in sight. (Photo by Adem Altan/AFP via Getty Images)

    Each time the Arab-Israel dispute turns violent on Israeli soil, Turks immediately return to their post-truth mode. One newspaper headline proudly says that Palestinian fighters shot 137 rockets into Israel within five minutes. The next headline says Israel is a state of terror because it reciprocated to attacks against its citizens.

    ?The Pentagon is running a 60,000-strong secret army made up of soldiers, civilians and contractors, who travel the world under false identities embedded in consultancies and name-brand companies — without the knowledge of the American people or most of Congress — according to a report.

    The top-secret army was created by the Pentagon over the past 10 years as part of a program called “signature reduction,” and operates both domestically and internationally using a low-profile force of clandestine warriors who sometimes wear civilian clothes as they carry out their assignments, Newsweek reported.

    The force is 10 times the size of the covert elements of the CIA, comes with a cost of more than $900 million, and engages about 130 private companies in operations in locales like the Middle East and Africa, the report said.

    The information that was allegedly deleted from a Maricopa County election machine has been recovered, an auditor told state lawmakers on Tuesday.

    Ben Cotton, founder of CyFIR, one of four firms working on the 2020 election audit, said at the Arizona State Capitol in Phoenix that he discovered a master file table “that clearly indicated that the database directory was deleted from that server.”

    “Subsequently, I’ve been able to recover all of those deleted files, and I have access to that data,” he added. “I have the information I need from the recovery efforts of the data.”

    Basic principles such as freedom of assembly and freedom of worship guaranteed by the Constitution are being violated in the United States amid the COVID-19 pandemic, says constitutional attorney Rick Green.

    In an interview with The Epoch Times’ “Crossroads,” Green criticized the restrictions on churches imposed by Democratic Govs. Andrew Cuomo in New York and Gavin Newsom in California, as well as in other blue states.

    Such restrictions violate the First Amendment’s Free Exercise Clause guaranteeing the right to practice religion and assemble for its expression without government interference, said Green, a former Texas state representative and co-founder of the Patriot Academy.

  14. Bassem Eid’s Open Letter to Letter to My Palestinian Brethren:

    I know the past days have been incredibly devastating and equally bewildering. Why is the world letting Israel do this to you? I am writing to you my Palestinian brothers and sisters, to open your eyes from the disinformation that your real captor, Hamas, is feeding you.

    To my Palestinian Brethren, I implore you: Please do not let Hamas brainwash you into thinking it has “achieved” anything on our behalf.

    Do not fall prey to its lies and manipulations. Hamas is not a social Justice movement and certainly does not care about you or me. It is a criminal gang that only cares about increasing its own power at all of our expense. Your lives start to improve only when the Hamas reign of terror ends. Only then will you actually taste the fruits of real peace with your Jewish cousins.

    Yes, I know that to some in the media Hamas has more or less achieved its goal in this vile destructive war it started 10 days ago. It has spread fake news about Sheikh Jarrah being the core of Jewish aggression. It has cited violent riots at Al Aqua by falsely claiming that the Jews are going to destroy Al Aqua when that has never been true. And then it exploited the situation it created by starting a war with Israel to then justify its rocket attacks. All the while Hamas showed Palestinians a clear contrast between its ability to act and Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas and his Fatah Party’s inability to do much of anything.

    It is vitally important for you to realize and remember that Hamas is the main cause of suffering for you, my fellow Palestinians in Garza. It is Hamas that ignored warnings that the water wells were growing too salty from over pumping, leading to a point were Gaza’s tap water isn’t safe to drink. It is Hamas that diverted much of the massive humanitarian supplies meant for you that Israel has been allowing in daily hundreds of trucks. It is Hamas that has been stealing the cement and metal from the imports meant to build houses for you so that it could spend billions of dollars on a massive subterranean network of tunnels for its purposes only. And when it came to war with the Israelis these past ten days, Hamas deliberately used you as human shields, stationing rocket launchers and a missile arsenals in your homes, apartments, office buildings and even hospitals – – just as they did in 2014.

    And now Hamas has been carelessly shelling the most highly populated regions of Israel, with no specific target or strategy. Yet, I know from my sources in Gaza that as many as 25% of all rockets launched by Hamas crash within Gaza. That has resulted in Hamas killing as many as 50 of the civilians that it falsely blames on Israel. And are you proud of the fact that some of the Hamas missiles that Israel Defence Forces failed to intercept ended up exploding in places like Jaffa, Abu Ghosh and Lod where Arab Israelis now live?

    Ask yourself, how exactly do our people benefit from any of this? What will happen to our young men who were brainwashed on social media and tricked into throwing bricks and Molotov cocktails at police officers? How many of our people were seriously injured in Jerusalem as a result of Hamas’s incitement? How many more suffered the same fate when Hamas rockets crashed down in Gaza, to say nothing of the hundreds of thousands, of you my brothers and sisters, used as human shields again Israeli counterattacks?

    And what is to be gained? Palestinians living in those 4 buildings in Sheikh Jarrah will still be eventually evicted, a fact that has been known to those families for decades when they sold away the title to the real estate of those buildings. But forget about Sheikh Jarrah for a moment. Think about the even greater number of Palestinians who are now homeless in Gaza because Hamas chose to hide weapons in residential buildings.

    And when hostilities end, you can be sure that it won’t be the people of Gaza or representatives of your true interests, but the Hamas gang that will be cutting the lucrative financial compensation deals with Qatar and the European NGOs “to rebuild Gaza”. Remember who got rich the last time after them2014 war with Israel. Hamas will do the same exact thing: It will spend its instalments of Qatar money to replenish its arsenal rather than rebuild homes, purchase coronavirus vaccines or provide social services for the people. And Hamas is sure to continue and plot terrorist attacks against Israeli civilians. So Israel will have an even greater justification for restricting access to Al Aqsa and maintaining the defence blockade
    Around Gaza: It is you who will suffer, not Hamas with its rebuilt fancy villas. And the peace you so much deserve, which could have been possible when Israel withdrew entirely from the Gaza Strip in 2005 only to see Hamas set up an authoritarian military junta, will be even further out of reach.
    It is a tragedy that life is about to get worse for Palestinians in Gaza, but it is all the fault of Hamas. It planned and provoked a military confrontation to improve its own political standing and we will all suffer for it. Once again, I urge you to open your eyes and see past the Hamas deception. No matter how many Jews it manages to kill, Hamas will have achieved nothing that benefits ordinary Palestinians.

    Under international law, a civilian structure is a legitimate military target when used for military purposes. The Hamas terrorist organization chooses to use civilian structures for its military purposes and often launches rockets from densely populated civilian areas in Gaza.

    On May 18, 2021, the ninth day of Operation Guardian of the Walls, we operated to strike a concealed rocket launcher in a civilian structure in Gaza. Out of concern for the safety of non-combatants, we warned civilians in the building and in surrounding buildings about the strike, giving them enough time to evacuate before we struck the rocket launcher.

    Home-built firearms built this country.

    Long before we rebelled against England — while we were still a British colony — folks were making guns in their homes.

    These weapons played an important role in the Revolutionary War because firearms were in such short supply, and they went west with their owners after the war to help tame the wilderness.

    This country has a long and storied history of home gunsmithing, which nowadays is becoming a lost art.

    Over the years, various trends helped make home-built firearms popular.

    In the 1970s, several manufacturers began offering home build kits, mostly black powder, for the amateur gunsmithing and hobbyist crowd.

  20. Belgian manhunt for heavily armed far-right soldier
    Special Belgian police units are searching for a heavily armed soldier with far-right views who they believe poses a serious threat.

    The suspect has been named as Jurgen Conings, a military shooting instructor who took weapons from a barracks.
    He is said to have made threats in the past against virologist Marc Van Ranst, who led Belgium’s public health response to coronavirus.
    Mr Van Ranst and his family have been taken to a safe place.
    Questions are now being asked why a known far-right sympathiser was allowed access to military weapons. Reports said he had taken the arms from the base at Leopoldsburg on the pretext of organising target practice.
    Police appealed to the public not to approach the suspect but to get in touch if he was spotted. Authorities say he represents the highest level of threat on their scale of four and may have plans to attack either individuals or institutions.
    For hours a forest was searched near the town of Dilsen-Stokkem, not far from his home in the northern province of Limburg, after a car said to belong to the soldier was spotted containing heavy weapons.
    Inside the car they found four anti-tank rocket-launchers and ammunition but believe the suspect is still armed with other guns, including a sub-machinegun, and carrying a bulletproof vest.
    Police then closed the Hoge Kempen national park, a 12,000-hectare area (46 sq miles) of forest and heathland, not far from the Dutch border. Reports say several barracks have been closed, and soldiers barred from leaving.
    Reports described him a “potentially highly violent extremist”. He is said to have left letters indicating he is prepared for a deadly battle with police and “could no longer live in a society where politicians and virologists have taken everything away from us”.
    The suspect has in the past threatened Mr Van Ranst, considered Belgium’s best-known virologist.

    Justice Minister Vincent Van Quickenborne told Flemish TV there were indications that Jurgen Conings was “violent and in the course of the past 24 hours, evidence has emerged the man poses an acute threat”.
    At least 30 soldiers with far-right views are being monitored by Belgium’s threat analysis unit, and the suspect is said to be one of them.
    As the search continued Mr Van Ranst said on social media that such threats made “not the slightest impression on me at all”. He added that opposition to Covid restrictions and vaccines often coincided with glorification of violence and race hate.

  21. With Biden in charge, and a woke military, wouldn’t this be the perfect example of controlled opposition cooked up by Biden and his CCP handlers?

    The U.S. presents itself as standing up to China even though both sides know it is pure theatre. Then, once Taiwan is placated because they are convinced the U.S. Prez has their backs, the Red Chinese make a real offensive while Biden pulls out all military force.

    • “Antivaxxers are masters of projection, which is why the latest antivaccine disinformation about COVID-19 vaccines is that they lead the recipient to “shed” spike protein, which can can cause menstrual irregularities or even miscarriages in women who come into contact with the vaccinated and even make people very sick. This trope is nothing more than a clever repackaging of the old antivaccine distortions and exaggerations about viral shedding after vaccination with live attenuated virus vaccines. Truly, everything old is new again.

      David Gorski on May 3, 2021”

      Niburi filled the internet in 2012.

      As a commenter wrote:
      “If just being near a vaccinated person caused you to be exposed to a sufficient amount of spike protein and become ill (or have a bad period, etc.), doesn’t that mean that almost all of the vaccinated people would be hospitalized or dead? They’re the ones with oodles of spike protein in their bodies.”

      • Thanks for that PC.

        Now this is slightly different though. Peter McCullough says that there are nine natural tissues in the body that have the spike protien, one of them is the placenta.

        That when your body becomes a factory for making the spike protein and trains the immune system against them, then it also attacks the placenta.

        This makes sense to me. It does feel like swimming in a sewer though, looking for a clean glass of water trying to find any truth.
