Norwegians? Be Careful What You Wish For

Posted by Picard578 on January 27, 2018



The overwhelmingly Left-wing foreign policy establishment in the United States would not normally let slip that it is not all peaches and cream in Africa, that in fact the continent is a black hole which will absorb aid funds without trace for all eternity. So what gave Foreign Policy cover to report that the U.S. ambassador to Zimbabwe, a man of African ancestry, continues to be vilified in derogatory racial terms by the Zimbabwean government? It is likely to be have been President Trump’s reported comments using a pithy aphorism to describe some sources of migrants. The President expressed a preference for migrants from Norway. Perhaps he was thinking of the likes of Ann-Margret who migrated to the United States in 1946.

Other Norwegians have been less pleasant, and there is a tie to Zimbabwe. Norway had a prime minister by the name of…

Islamist Death Cult Propaganda: Destructive To Truth, Humanity

Posted by Picard578 on January 1, 2018

Patrice Ayme's Thoughts

A university professor in Northern Ireland, historically a place of religious hatred, wrote an essay for Aeon which is pro-Islam in what supposed to be a smart way: Beyond Liberal Islam. Western liberalism is not the apex and terminus of human history, and it ought not to serve as the measure of Islam. Can Islam help to produce an appealing alternative to liberal societies? Is it time to look beyond the idea of liberal Islam?”

The author keeps sneaking in as obvious, enormously debatable, not to say deeply erroneous concepts. Such as: “The fallacious arguments of Islamophobes”, “the fact Muslim regimes are backwards for historical rather than metaphysical reasons”.

Of course not true. Islam is an extremely dangerous and reductive superstition. All too many people are ignorant of the fact the “West” was NOT Christian. The Frankish empire pretty much covered all of Europe, including Britain after 1066…

In October 1917, the Bolshevik Revolution gave birth to the deadliest ideology in human history – Communism. That disease spread like wildfire. To date Communism has claimed more than 100 million lives worldwide and to quote Nigel Jones : “The 20th century witnessed death and slaughter on an unprecedented scale…Josip Broz Tito’s (described as belonging to the top 20 mass murderers of the 20th century) communist regime murdered some 570,000 political opponents…” and this figure does not account for family members, women and children that stack up a murderous toll. According to the world renowned academic and scientist R.J. Rummel, the democide committed by Tito’s communist regime after WWII amounts to 1,380,000 people (with the population of around 18 million at the time this figure is staggering).

How Croatia and the US prevented genocide with ‘Operation Storm’

Posted by Picard578 on December 4, 2017

Greater Surbiton

oluja.jpgThe trial of Croatian General Ante Gotovina, who spearheaded the liberation of the Serbian-occupied areas of central Croatia in ‘Operation Storm’ in August 1995, began this week in The Hague. Gotovina is accused of playing a leading role in a Croatian ‘joint criminal enterprise’, whose purpose was, according to his indictment, ‘the forcible and permanent removal of the Serb population from the Krajina region, including by the plunder, damage or outright destruction of the property of the Serb population, so as to discourage or prevent members of that population from returning to their homes and resuming habitation.’

Every Croatian democrat should be pleased that this trial is taking place. If Gotovina is innocent, then the trial should result in his acquittal and rehabilitation. If he is guilty, then his victims deserve justice and he should be punished. But either way, the trial will force Croatia to confront the dark side of its…

The Sexual Left Devours Itself

The Orthosphere

The Great Sex Harassment Witch Hunt of 2017 is mostly hitting liberals. It is leaving conservatives largely unscathed (at least so far). Why should this be?

Blackwashing Cleopatra

Posted by Picard578 on October 3, 2017

The Orthosphere

I have never set foot inside the Folger Shakespeare Library, a dereliction I hope will be excused by the fact that it lies about twelve hundred miles down the road.  Although I am not a patron, and am very unlikely to become one, the Folger Shakespeare Library nevertheless sends me notices of its upcoming events–indeed it did so just this morning.  The event is a performance of Shakespeare’s Anthony and Cleopatra, in which they tell me the actress Shirine Babb will play the famous Siren of the Nile.

The Regressive Left’s takeover of our Defence Force

Posted by Picard578 on February 26, 2017

Politically correct insanity has made its way into Australian military.

Aussie Nationalist Blog

The Leftist war on traditional norms and its interminable yearning to force political agendas down the throats of ordinary Australians, is an unfortunate trend.

However, for the Regressive Left to distract our military by proselytizing them into various radical beliefs, is something else.

Put simply, the Left’s symbolic, politically correct crusades must not be allowed to further infect our Defence Force, which sadly looks more like an agency for Multicultural Integration, Gender Fluidity and Organic Sustainability, than an organisation responsible for safeguarding our nation’s security.

“By promoting diversity over fighting ability the Army is alienating its warriors”, Daily Telegraph, February 25, 2017:

Five years after the former Army chief and former Sex Discrimination Commissioner Liz Broderick launched a social engineering experiment aimed at stamping out the male “Anglo Saxon” warrior culture, the troops are unimpressed.

The top brass might have drunk the feminist Koolaid of “Pathway to Change” and its mutant offshoots, but most of the people they…

Seven Stars and Seven Crowns: A Catholic Monarchist’s Perspective on The Lord of the Rings

Posted by Picard578 on February 25, 2017

The Fellowship of The King

     The great Catholic author J.R.R. Tolkien once described his masterpiece The Lord of the Rings as a “story is cast in terms of a good side, and a bad side, beauty against ruthless ugliness, tyranny against kingship, moderated freedom with consent against compulsion that has long lost any object save mere power…” Of all these, the battle between Kingship and Tyranny is one of the most deeply Catholic themes in the story. It is also one of the most obvious.

     Most Catholics who have read The Lord of Rings will rightly recognize in these fictional histories the figure of Aragorn, the prophesied King, as a type2 of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will return like Aragorn to reclaim His Kingdom. Yet these same Catholics will often overlook a more hidden meaning in the portrayal of Kingship in The Lord of the Rings for the simple reason that we…
