~ ITEM: Book Review: Paul Theroux – The Pillars Of Hercules
~ ITEM: Italy Panorama » The Gratitude of Aliano
~ HERE IN Binkiland, we’re lucky to have two or three very good used bookstores, and a reasonably well-read populace.
One recent grab was Paul Theroux’s The Pillars Of Hercules, a travelogue of the Mediterranean, from Gibraltar all the way round to the other pillar. I didn’t know that I knew Theroux, but the film adaptation of his Mosquito Coast (with Harrison Ford) had spookily spoken to my circumstances then: a family member out of control; life turned into a tornado; everything shaped by the broken life of a loved one.

One Year Gone– So Much For Canucki/ Quebecki Justice
~ ITEM: Carleton students chased with machete – Macleans OnCampus
~ ITEM: The Cost of Supporting Israel, by Nick Bergamini
~ ITEM: Media downplays anti-Semitic machete attack in Ottawa
~ ITEM: Google: Carleton, Machete
~ LET’S REMEMBER the facts as blogged & reported, and uncontradicted thusfar: last April…
“Nick Bergamini, Vice-President Student Issues at Carleton University, says he and roommate Mark Klibanov were attacked early Monday morning by a group of men yelling that they were Zionists and Jews.”
As the men got out of the car, Bergamini says he heard one of them say, “Open the trunk,” as another reached in and allegedly pulled out a machete. The men began to run, being chased by a machete-wielding attacker. Klibanov told the Citizen that the weapon was nearly a foot from hitting Bergamini’s neck. “These people must have been Carleton students because I recognized one of them,” Bergamini told the paper.
A report has been filed with Gatineau police. Lt. Gilbert Couture confirmed that police are investigating.”
But no– because the Quebec injustice system is bent and unfair, the investigation went nowhere, no arrests were ever made (despite an ID of one alleged attacker), and justice remains undone. The media ‘downplayed’ everything.. then the disinformation started– you know, they could’ve just made everything up.. probably a misunderstanding.
Sigh. That’s what frickin’ TRIALS are for, with attendant media and public attention to details. But we were all deprived of that right, so the truth of the matter stands at an accusation, he says – they sez, plus cowardly police dropping the issue.
Anti-semitic Jihad & hate-crime. In Canada. On our streets. Uninvestigated, unsolved, untrialled, unpunished.
This is the Canada we live in. ~
Of Hobbitses And Reepicheep
~ SHOULD I EVER REACH HEAVEN, I will hope to thank both C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien for the gift of baptising my imagination through their books. First The Hobbit, read to me by my mother; then the wonderful boxed-set of Narnia, illustrated by Pauline Baynes. Then J.R.R.’s trilogy, which at first didn’t seem Narnian enough, but then proved far superior in detail, power, and mystery.
C.S. Lewis credits the faerie tales of Scottish author George MacDonald for baptising his imagination. The gift of imagination and faith are not treasure to be hoarded, but passed along to others. Imagination and faith are twins– each depends on the other. The capacity to reason and ponder, to enter in rather than to look at from the outside
So when I got a chance to watch the latest Narnia movie The Dawn Treader, it touched the deepest roots of memory– not least the sea of flowers, and near Aslan’s country: the porches of heaven, for in Christ, heaven and earth are united, and earth becomes the bridge unto eternity.
The prophets and dreamers have shown us the deepest wellsprings of the human heart are not only earthly, nor only in the one-sided account of reality and human nature according to the false religion of scientific materialism, or progressive heaven on earthism.
Feeding the imagination with healthy fare is a challenge in the swamp of modern culture and flickering images: but a sopul needs to be educated aright so that the deep longing in all of us for We Know Not What gets pointed to our true North: unto God, and the true, the beautiful, and the good. St. Paul knew it in his day, surrounded by public arts & literature, painted pagan gods, and lotsa fancy buildings:
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Philippians 4:8
Thanks, Professor Lewis.. thanks, Professor Tolkien. For everything. ~
Just Sayin’, Is All
“Egyptian Protesters seem to believe that we have the support of the entire world by what we did, and that we need to focus on local battles because the international scene will just have to adjust itself to whatever we do. This is incredibly naive given how big and important Egypt is geopolitically. They need to understand that there is no way the US, Israel, Saudi, Qatar, Russia, China or others will not try to influence the outcome and apply pressure on the Military government to rig the game slightly in their favor.”

~ ITEM: Libya: The media-driven war
~ OK, SO IMAGINE that behind the– snort– ‘Freedom Revolts’ in Libya/Egypt/Tunisia/Bahrain/Yemen, and now Syria is a demonic cabal of Sorosian leftist money and agitation and ‘Reform Islam’ (known as The Muslim Brotherhood), o’er-sprinkled with the volatile fuel of Western media attention.
There are liberals in the Islamic world, but they do not command armies of colonial Minutemen seeking a free America. Slaves under the Ottomans, and then under colonial masters, the m asses are not yearning to be free– they seek a golden age, not the cacophony and long-nurtured complexities of Western civilization, nor the ugliness of political correctness let alone the bureaucratic claws of the new EUtopia.
The Good Old Days
Five years from now, shall the MuzzBros be defacto political and popular masters of a great sweep of the Middle East and North Africa? Will Turkey be next in line? Israel surrounded? The MuzzBros fronts of Hizballah, Hamas, and the smaller broods of vipers bred by the PLO and others united in Holy War, like the good old days & golden age of the Caliphs and Muhammed?
The Muslim Brotherhood is the pattern behind so much of the last 70 years of politics, war, violence, and media-scatter. Now that they’re coming out of the closet across the region– and not just via the PLO, Hamas, Hizballah, Al Qaeda and the other front-groups, we’re seeing the big pattern of subversion, “reform Islam”, and Jihadorama which is behind it all.
Ignore the “Nothing to see here.. everything is normal– extra normal!” coming from the U.S. State Department and the usual suspects: that’s madness, cowardice, or dishonesty. The old balance of secular dictator keeping the lid on Islamist radicalism is falling apart across the Islamic world. The result will not be a thousand flowers blooming or a million points of light, but sharia and “good old” AD650 Islam.
Knowledge is 25% Of The Battle
Learn up on these guys– realize the fronters are already here: CAIR, ISNA, MSA, and all the rest. It’s a toxic centre surrounded by a rich and fluffy faux-progressive political style. Camelled warriors galloping down the streets of Ottawa beheading infidels would just be too retro: better to get to ShariaLand by subversion, spin, victimization, and radicalizing the general Muslim populace whilst silencing the rest.
The “Freedom Spring” is a lie.. this is a very very serious moment in geopolitics.. and as Egyptian blogger & commentator SandMonkey observes, as in the ancient world, so today Egypt is the lynchpin for Africa, The Middle East, and the trend of the whole region. For Obama & the EU to opting out, standing by, or quietly cheering is suicidal.
The Road Ahead
Should Obama or a like character win in 2012, and American power continue to decline and the financially crippled U.S. grovel at the feet of the EU and the Arab League, then it’s all up for grabs. Everyone may envy and resent the U.S., but it’s an unpredictable and much more dangerous world without American power, benevolently if awkwardly and well-intentionedly employed. Do we really want world-class butchers like China or Russia as world-cop? Or a thousand little chaotic renegade powers?
And in places like France, the Netherlands, some regions of England, and elsewheres, should violence erupt, do the authorities really have the cojones to do the racist anti-multiculti? To tell people That’s Just Not How We Do It? Sign The *%$#@! On, Or Go Home?
Aye, there’s the rub. ~
Only Then Pour Out Your Heart
Dancing at the Pierian Spring
~ ITEM: Discover The Networks: Academia
~ ITEM: Tenured Radicals: How Politics Has Corrupted Our Higher Education, By Roger Kimball
~ ITEM: Studies show virginity and hook-ups both on the rise
~ HISTORY– like any modern ‘science’– can have real pitfalls, and become slave to the ruling ideology, latest fad, or blindness of the moment. That’s why, as the oft misquoted remark has it,
A little Learning is a dang’rous Thing; Drink deep, or taste not the Pierian Spring.
[ Alexander Pope, Essay on Criticism l. 215, 1711 ]
.. that is, the Muses were supposed to born in the Pieria region of central Macedonia, and knowledge– and the humble love of it– springs forth in souls in love with truth and knowledge. It’s relevant, because within the region is also found Mount Olympus, home of the Greek gods.
An early reference to the Pierian spring is found in the Satyricon of Petronius (Titus Petronius Arbiter), from the late 1st century AD:
“This is the right armour of genius–
‘Drink deep or taste not the Pierian spring.’
Only then pour out your heart.”
Drinking of the ancient Pierian Spring is supposed to have imparted knowledge and inspiration.. but with a caution: the first sips would cause a drunken state of false knowledge: only drinking more deeply would sober you up again. How many undereducated undergrads consider themselves a bright new genius in all things, with many new theories to impart unto the world? Sigh.
The wiser course is to listen, learn, humbly understand the greater writers and literature before you ever dare blab and pontificate and run amuck with teh crazy from your own shallow and knowledge-drunken soul. Some people get stuck in this phase forever.
Indeed, some ‘learners’ in the past 300 years came up with any number of bizarre and novel theories– the French pre-revolutionaries, too many German scholars to name, ex-Christian Karl Marx, you name it. Such people may have paddled in the Peirian spring, but were more in love with the sound of their own inward voice, and vain hopes of a perfectable world crafted in their own image. The suffering world has paid in gouts of blood.
I’ve been in love with history since.. well, my Grandfather talked about his wartime life, and let me read his WW2 pictorial book collection. That got me going– I devoured library books on the 2nd War, then the Great War, then via Thomas Costain, into Medieval England.. then Mr. Mann, my Grade 10 teacher, inspired me with the ancient world.
To spend time in the past is to have a working mind spanning thousands of years, thousands of people, and the great thoughts of the past. It is to recognize what was a commonplace until the educational devolution of the 1960s, that to be educated is to have a familiarity with ‘the great conversation’ spanning the millennia from the latest thoughts, all the wayback to Sumeria.
Oddly enough, the betrayal of Western Civ by the expert-class of the radicalized academy has only been partiually successful: publishing has never been more successful in opening knowledge to ordinary folks.. then the internet, which is swimming with ancient art, statuary, writings in Latin, Greek, and english. It’s an unheralded mini-renovation.
As such, the politified Marxist/ socialist academia has a hopeless task of keeping the sheep obedient. For this history lover, my blood still boils when I think of the wasted minds and hours devoted to such thought-puppetry. All those ‘professors’ professing the tired ideas of political correctness to their students– it’s like feeding vomit to starving people.
Whatever comes of the current battles for free speech, part of the re-invasion of the institutions must be encouraging young students of worth to become professors and authors and so begin to reclaim the academy from the lies and political captivity of the Left.
Further, parents should know their dollars are sending kids to learn hooking up, parroting enslavement and stupidity, and ensuring a comfortable living for tenured radicals.

Dear Mr. Prime Minister
~ ITEM: Before Canadians head once again to the polls, they should do their homework
~ ITEM: Harper: abortion, gay ‘marriage’ won’t be on the agenda, even with majority
~ ODDLY ENOUGH, the Harper Election AD 2011 War-room has not called Teh Binks yet. That’s never stopped me– free advice is worth every penny!
(1) Steve, be humble. You’ve got a sad record in botching big leads into a minority.
(2) Keep it not too nasty: The Iggy-Jacobites-Blockheads will hang themselves, mock themselves, and look like criminals, idots, liars and radicals all on their own.
(3) Balance the budget, pay down the debt. Roll back taxes.
(4) No more pandering to the radical Islamists. Enforce the rule of law, restrict immigration from Islamic nations, cut off group funding, and uphold Canada.
(5) If you win a majority, use it. Canucki Socons have been faithful to you from the beginning: you’ve been Mr. Fits & Starts on defunding govteat-feminism, protecting marriage, defending free speech and gutting the Marsupial Bureaucracy. You owe us.
(6) Finally, if you win a majority, see if you can help the NDLB’s to get a clue: you will govern better and more accountably with a real and functional opposition in the Parliament.
(7) Stop acting like a petty dictator.. and that includes your MPs and cabinet. Obey the rule of law, and renew parliament for the future.
You’re welcome. No Order of Canada or Senate seat required, but thanks anyway. Making the right promises and keeping them is enough thanks.
Yes, the Binks is a socon Tory, but I already have a religion, and salvation by government or glorious leaderness ain’t it. ~
Just Asking For It

~ ITEM: American Thinker: The EMP Threat: ElectroMagnetic Pulse Warfare
~ ITEM: One Second After
~ ITEM: Greenies want a car-less Europe
~ OUR MODERN supply-chain systems run lean and mean: most of us don’t have the basement packed with preserves, nor do stores or industries have lots of supplies on hand just in case of disaster or interruption in supply.
Food-stores stock a week or so; cities and towns get gas for a few days worth; pharmacies have small amount of drugs on hand, and many needed items for the sick and elderly are shipped across the continent or from other countries. Increasingly– even in land-rich places– food is shipped in from elsewhere, to save money for the supermarkets and consumers.
Can you imagine being a diabetic in battered Northern Japan right now? Or if a natural disaster or a war were to strike: what happens after the first month or two is the food runs out, the old and sick and medically assisted begin to die off, and then the wider lack of food causes the younger and healthier to get weaker and sick.
In the book One Second After, author William R. Forstchen depicts a rural college town in the aftermath of an EMP (Electro-Magnetic Pulse) attack on the power grid of the United States. The power goes off.. likely for years.. as all modern electronics are cooked (old tube & wire radios & old cars being the exception), all food & medicine & fuel supplies are stopped. Then come the gangs and refugees and conflict over leftover supplies and all the rest. Very gripping stuff.. and they’re making a movie.
For all those anti-moderns who wish to live in the pre-power age, it’s not very pleasant: just move to any place in the Third World if you like it buggy and pre-air-conditioned. After all, even our olden days had suppliers, plus stockpiles of food & goods, swords & knives & guns for hunting & such; and survivable homes and farming and close-knit communities, and all the rest.
Our current “just in time” systems of personal, commercial, and industrial supply are made for perfect times when no war threatens, and North America is safe and free. A more prudent “just in case” system would allow some resiliency and absorb shortages or other problems which confront us. Two words: Iranian nuke. ~
March Of The Termites
~ ITEM: ‘Slut walk’ crowded: Protesters say police blame victims of sexual assault
~ ITEM: Heather Jarvis is a queer, sex- and body-positive feminist
~ ITEM: Mitchieville is not France
~ SLUTTERY– Long ago at university, when Binky’s outward sexitude was at maximum, those size 32 Levis were the bomb.. plus grey leather jacket, polo shirt, and popular snaker of the moment. I didn’t march in any ‘male slut’ parades.. the darned things were too hard on the ‘nads for much activity.
But the question of goods on display and our personal freedom does not end there. Nor does “You Can’t Tell ME What To Do” represent the height of democracy or freedom.
The Ontario slutocracy controversy is the new feminist man-bashy thing that says that ‘liberated’ women dress to feel good, and men should get over it. Since men and their sex-drive are connected through the eye-balls, this is the fashionista equivalent of “I want sex.. but only want babies when I say so.” Biology is not destiny, blah blah blah, patriarchy sucks, yadda yadda yadda, no women’s studies is not a waste of time & money, how dare you say so. Lather, rinse, repeat.
Skanks & Wimps
Above all things, we moderns demand freedom without consequences of any sort, especially the pain of reality and logic. If the Marxo-feminist de-marriaging and de-babying of culture has ended up with unambitious wimpy men, loveless hooking up, modwyms reserve the right to bitch about it. If the death of adult culture and sluttification has devalued sex, some women reserve the right for costly old-style white weddings, after both partners have had any amount of prior sexual experience, an abortion, plus years of cohabitation and pre-marital sex.. and yet are left wondering where the romance goes, why the $40k marriage doesn’t last, and life sucks.
It’s like people trying to do a sort of social magic by doing a mix of new and old-style things, while neither understanding themselves, nor the meaning of the ritual. It’s also about living like rich Hollywood celebrities, many of whom are living proof of the old warning that actors are a neurotic, dangerous, and decadent lot. Lifestyles of the unrich and unfamous– using the limited sexual freedoms granted them by big-government so they’ll ignore the loss of their real economic and political freedoms.
Hence, the SlutWalk is a kind of “Yay! We’re Trash!”, plus a slave-parade chanting “Hurray For Slavery! Up with whips & chains!”, alongside “Hell, No, Of All The Possible Important Things We Could Protest Or March About, Our Socialist Circus Trainers Told Us This Was The Big Issue!” Really? No other emergent problem in Canada or the wide world worth getting bent out of shape about? Binks finds your lack of imagination disturbing.
A cop contravenes feminist orthodoxy while speaking at a cesspool like anti-semite pro-Jihad YorkU, and the intolerant guardians of unmorals blow a gasket, make a website, and summon the usual suspects to celebrate their moral, intellectual, and sexual enslavement. Gotcha.
So gear up the malcontents and subversives to put on a predictable display of Rage™. The latest public tantrum isn’t really the issue: the issue is never the issue: it’s really all about The Revolution™, baby. That’s how progressives work: like termites, eating away the inside until the strength of the whole structure is an illusion.
As often, Shaidle has the last word: “the best way for women to avoid rape would be for them to conceal-carry, but this is Canada and we’re idiots.” ~
Original Sin– The Problem?
“I am like the man who fell among thieves, O Master of all, for I have fallen among my sins and have been cruelly wounded by them. Yet leave me not without healing, O Lord who camest not from Samaria but from the pure Virgin. Jesus, Name that means salvation, have mercy upon me.”
~ ITEM: Pat Condell: ‘The great Jesus swindle’ + long-winded commentary
~ CRITICS OF CHRISTIANITY sometimes seem to suppose that Christians made up puzzling stuff to make people miserable. You know, the Trinity, organized religion, fasting, sin, Lent, confessing, all that odd stuff in the Bible.
The church is thus a kind of a spiritual red-tape racket, figuring out how to forbid fun, tangle up simple things– all for money and the joy of bossing people around and making them feel bad. I know that’s why I spent all those years in college and parishes, sweating committees and exams and meetings and funerals and sermons. The sweet sweet power. Ha ha, whee, and muwahahaha.
The question of sin, original or otherwise– Adam and Eve and Augustine and all that– is not actually a Christian thing. The origin myths of most religions and societies ever have wondered some basic things about our lives, experiences, and the world around us.
(1) Who am I?
(2) Why is there anything? How did it get here?
(3) Why is it this way and not otherwise?
(4) Where does Man come from? Why male & female?
(5) What is our relation to what is, to one another, to the natural world & other creatures?
(6) Who or what is the divine?
(7) When we break faith with each other, or the gods, or ourselves, Why? How?
(8) What do we do about the imperfection and brokenness that we find in ourselves, each other, and the world? Whaat is regret and sorrow?
(9) What is death? Where do we come from and where to we go? Why do we suffer?
You get the idea.
Bring On The Sin
Original sin as we receive it from Judaeo-Christianity is not a cruel puzzle to make people feel bad, but the recognition of all those questions, as laid out in pagan religion, Judaism, and Christianity. We are made in the image and likeness of God, yet cut off from Him, by unlikeness, finity, imperfection, and sin.
Virtually all religions have a version of sin & expiation; sacred and profane; the difference between the gods and men; fundamental questions of being and existence. Greek philosophy– despite departures– was ultimately about knowing and loving God; just as Greek drama was about the ways of gods and men and life; knowledge adn understanding itself was the gift of the divine, directed towards knowing the world, manking, and God himself.
Man & God
That some people today consider religion irrelevant or positively evil does would– to most generations of humans ever everywhere– seem a kind of impious and inhuman madness. Indeed, the deliberately godless utopiae concocted over the past three centuries or so bear witness at least that whatever the truth or falsity of a religious understanding of things, theirs seems rather prone to bloodshed, dictatorship, war & conquest, gulag, and a false account of what is most truly human or divine.
That’s the final issue: Christianity not only claims to be the truth, but the way of fullness for humanity– alive in God, partaking of the divine nature itself, sharing in the resurrection of Christ, freed from sin by his sacrifice, humanity taken up into God.. instead of divinity dragged down into self-perfecting uber-men and glorious leaders and perfect states.
Ball In Your Court, Then
It’s a huge question, but that’s the big shape of my response to one critique of Christianity made by some authors and thinkers. The real and unanswered issue for all the bright & clever utopians and atheist types is this: where is the evidence that they can remake Western Civilization without its founding ideas & principles, ripping away the living flesh & blood of faith & philosophy & inspiration and then building– what, exactly?– on the leftover bones? ~

Cult Of Planned Uncontrollable Rage
“I find it shameful that in obedience to the stupid, vile, dishonest and for them extremely advantageous fashion of political correctness, the usual opportunists (or really, the usual parasites) exploit the word ‘peace,’ that in the name of the word ‘peace,’ by now more debauched than the words ‘love’ or ‘humanity,’ they absolve one side alone of its hate and its beastiality. That in the name of ‘pacifism’ (read ‘conformism’) delegated to the singing crickets and buffoons who used to lick Pol Pot’s feet, they incite people who are confused or ingenuous or intimidated, trick them, corrupt them, carry them back a half-century to the time of the yellow star on the coat. These charlatans who care as much about the Palestinians as I care about the charlatans. That is, not at all. I find it shameful.”

Further Thoughts On David Cameron’s Speech
“There is a very interesting word psychology going on here, implanting in the consciousness an unquestionable state orthodoxy and narrative of enlightenment. It is ‘spin’, but of such an Orwellian subliminal manipulation of the vernacular that any contrary utterance strikes a chord of jarring dissonance, and the speaker or writer is cast into political, social or spiritual oblivion.
Norman Tebbit, Simon Heffer, Bishop Michael Nazir-Ali, Peter Hitchens, John Redwood, Melanie Phillips, The Freedom Association. These are inter alia ‘fascists’ of ‘the right’; they exist at the periphery of social acceptability….”
~ ITEM: CRANMER BLOG WARNS US– Cameron’s concept of religious freedom– “In calling for ‘muscular liberalism’ (as opposed to liberal Conservatism), the Prime Minister has subjugated holiness to his form of social contract, and relegated the peace of Christ to the absence of civil strife”; What are British ‘core values’?; and “Writing propaganda for the EDL”
~ MOTHER HILARY, The Mitred Abbess of Orwell’s Picnic Blog took Teh Binks to task today as being not in his right mind in saying nice things about David Cameron’s latest speechifying on MultiCulti. Fair enough– but Binks never claimed to be in his right mind, right? Wiser minds than mine have cautionary second thoughts on the Brit PM’s remarks, and what worse stuff might replace mushy MultiCulti. Read & ponder.
After all, a harsh secularist regime might well exclude militant Islamists — and all other religious ‘opinions’– in a bid for a kind of social peace. After all, secularists in England, the EU, and North America are already trying to silence, penalize & mistreat vocal orthodox Christians in speaking out for what has been 2000+ years of Judaeo-Christian moral and anthropological principles. ~

~ ITEM: Binks– Save A Life This Christmas
~ WHEN WE THINK of ‘benevolent’ International Non-governmental Organizations like The Red Cross (helping people in the name of Christ), it’s all happy good, right?
Except for someone who finally gets it, and responds to the example of Christians and the call of God, and decides to turn from Islam– which is a death-penalty thing in most seriously Muslim nations. One man in Afghanistan who lost his leg 15 years ago worked through the Red Cross to help other Afghan amputees… converted, and now?
“Said Musa, 45, has been held for eight months in a Kabul prison were he claims he has been tortured and sexually abused by inmates and guards.
Mr Musa, who lost his left leg in a landmine explosion in the 1990s, has worked for the Red Cross for 15 years and helps to treat fellow amputees.
He was arrested in May last year as he attempted to seek asylum at the German embassy following a crackdown on Christians within Afghanistan.”
Torture, prison-rape, a death-sentence. Now, Jesus promised the hatred of the world and martyrdom to his followers– but Muslim nations are a special category of antiChristianity.
AND THEN HE WAS ABANDONED BY THE INTERNATIONAL RED CROSS… who wanted to cover the whole thing up, kept letters from him, and apparently haven’t made any efforts to help him. Like this guy:
Reto Stocker, Head of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC)
“In a final meeting with Reto Stocker, head of the Red Cross in Kabul, Mossa’s friends were again told that ICRC is neutral and would not intervene. They were also asked to not make the case public.
In another breach of the Red Cross’ mission, they refused to deliver hundreds of letters addressed to Mossa. Westerners organized the letter-writing campaign to both encourage the Christian and to publicly display the international community’s concern over his plight. “They won’t deliver the letters to Sayed. The Red Cross does not have the right to keep the letters from him. It’s their responsibility to ensure he receives letters written to him via the Red Cross address,” said an aid worker in Kabul who helped organize the campaign.”
For shame. FOR SHAME. The International Red Cross out of Geneva is aiding and abetting Taliban & militant Afghans in the persecution of an employee. To add insult to injury, they’re ignoring a person in need, whom they threw to the wolves, and violating their own mission. That’s evil. And needs to be exposed.
As David Cameron, Angela Merkel and others are now shouting from the rooftops, there can be no accomodation with Sharia, Jihadi, or Islamic supremacism. It’s a death-match, not a multiculti picnic.

All Hail Dear Leader Binks!
~ BINKY THE WEBELF AS false god– it’s a joke, but with a reason. The whole “Ever-Growing Legion Of Pre-Dead Minions” thing, the Binky-Bunker, the pool, the mansions, the Super-Secret HQ, the control over your taste, interests, thoughts; that my wish is your command… it’s a joke. Because there’s been rather too much of the real thing in the 20th Century, inspired by the dark creepery of 19th century inhumanist “thinkers”, and the nasty revolutionists before them.
This introduction is by way of praise for one of my favourite bloggers, GagDad Bob of One Cosmos. He writes theologically and metaphysically, and then ties it in intelligently to current events, problems, and personalities. He’s not a big fan of Leftism, which he considers a false religion, but he’s always got good reasons and a fair take on matters.
His series on Hitler & Nazism is must-read. The recent loving disassembly of Obamism and other anti-Christian messianisms is a glory. It’s topical Aristotle, who said that all learning was a kind of remembering– after reading a dosed of Gagdad, you feel like slapping your forehead and saying “Of course! How could I have forgotten?”
The greatest compliment I can pay to GagDad Bob is that he strikes sparks in my mind & soul with his reflections & insights; he makes me want to blog, to think on things, to read & ponder– for the unexamined life is not worth living.
Add to that the wordplay, puns, and lightness of style, and the One Cosmos blog is “FTW: For The Win” as my twin boys put it. ~

~ OKAY, HERE’S THE THING– I love you, America.. but the current bunch in DC are beyond dangerous. If you don’t get a real leader in there by 2012, your future as a great nation will be nailed to the floor. You role in international relations and the great issues of the day has already begun to go FUBAR, and one is left wondering if Obama & company aren’t so much idiots at large, but working the other side.
Since the economic heart-attack of 2007-8, your economy has been on life-support, but not really recovering. Jobs? Recovery? Stable banking system and dollar? International confidence? Soon, you won’t be able to afford your bills, let alone dealing with world-sized problems, war, or an Islamo-nuke on a major city. When you lose your economic maneuver-room, you’ve lost your freedom, and freedom of action, and soveriegnty. Sometimes circumstances will allow some goofing up and goofing around– these are deeply dangerous days, when consequences seen and unforeseen are real & serious.
Whether The American Fuhrer is evil in his own will, he is certainly evil in his effects, as is the religion of socialist/ progressive salvation he has staked the future of all Americans upon.
America, he’s your nightmare, but he’s ruining the world, too.. we really really need you to vote him out, clean up your act, get rid of the voting fraud and foriegn money and political interference from those who wish utopian Neomerica to rise from the grave of America, and realize that your destiny is to be a force for good in the world, and that without your influence, power, good will, and courage, we’re all screwed. Obama wants all this to happen: he’s self-nuking America as she was, for the imaginary progressive paradise of Omerica that he wants.
No, don’t retreat from the cruel world; no, don’t take the thanklessness of so many as a true assessment of your quality and capacity for good; and no, the interior criticism of Frankfurter School Marxists is not true, or based on the real world. Obama doesn’t understand his adoptive country, root, trunk, or branch.
They Have His measure
Ditch the Utopian and his zombie minions. You’ve already seen where three years of this false dream really leads, in spades. If you let it go on for another 5 or six years, then America is truly, deeply, and monumentally screwed… and the world with her. The opportunistic infection that is The Muslim Brotherhood– along with all the other would-be world dictators and rabble-rousers– are watching very closely, and have accurately judged Obama to be a fool, a back-stabber & unreliable ally, a joke with no punchline, a Muslim sympathizer, a bully to allies and an appeaser to enemies, and a massive fail in the course of America political life and geo-political engagement.
Please, America– this is your War For The Future. Vote him out of office, set aside politics as usual, and thereby decide whether the 21st century is going to be a time of renewal, or a walk to the graveyard of history, of failed empires gone the way of dust & ruins and memory. If Soros & the Clintons & Pelosi have wrecked the Democratic party, then recreate it as it should be: liberal, but not utopian and neo-totalitarian.
In the last three centuries, America welcomed families from Holland, Moldova, Scotland, Canada, and elsewhere– my relatives and ancestors. They helped build the United States, and tens of thousands of my distant cousins now live across the nation. My Dad was born there– raised then in Scotland and Canada– and now lives in the Midwest: and there are other immediate relatives in Hawaii, Florida, California, New York, and elsewhere. You’re in my blood, and my blood is in you.
Sincerely, your friend,

~ MY NAME IS BINKS, and I hold doors for teh wimmins.. kids, old folks, whomever. I like to drive slower than needful in traffic to allow other drivers to get in and out of traffic. I say please and thank you, and don’t refer to people older than me by their first names unless so invited. I open the car-door for Teh She-Binks, and help her with her chair when she sits. I let others take food first. I carry the heavy stuff, and as needed, deal with anything poisonous, sharp, possibly explosive, bacterial or bitey or stingy.
All that feminuts stuff about equalitarianism is ideologically about weakening the bonds between men and women, and families. When you remove the expectation that men should use their strength to protect, defend, and serve women and children, you don’t get everybody helping everybody else, but women being prickly, and men being lazy or uncertain.
Further, the “hooking up is better than marriage-slavery” has not led to any glorious liberation of repressed energy, but to shame, disease, abortion, delayed and broken marriages, suffering and uncertainty for children, a birth-dearth, and– strangely enough– boredom. Turns out that when you break the age-old and safeguarded holy power and reproductive gift of sex between man and wife, you don’t get freedom and joy and liberation.
The civilizing fact is that men will give their all for a wife and kids– and, by extension, the wider family & community– for a little respect and authority in return. Heck– work years and years, lay down lives, it can be quite an offering.
The death of politeness is no new & better age, but a cold, angry, uncaring, splintered society. ~

General Electric is, after all, teh inheritor of Thomas Edison’s utopian/ industrial project. Thing is, the consumer-friendly vision of the GE company is so 60 years ago. Now, GE is more actively immoral than Google or MicroSoft when it comes to undercutting America, aiding & abetting evil.

Maybe you heard about the Assises Contre l’islamisation that were held in Paris on December 18, 2010. One of the guest speakers was Tom Trento, director of the Florida Security Council. You can listen to his speech here.
Tom is one of the authors of the Team B 11 Report on Sharia, the threat to America.
