Shocking Photos Leaked By The UK Armed Forces.

In 2016 a scandal broke out here in the UK after soldiers leaked pictures of the disgusting food that they are served while on base. The scandal did not stop there but extended to what sort of housing they are offered as well.

I had never heard of any of this but figured it out since a couple of accounts dedicated to sharing these type of photos on Instagram started following me. When I first saw the pictures and the following comments I thought that maybe this was some sort of an inside joke. Apparently not.

A quick online search before I went to sleep revealed that this is indeed “real-news.“

Soldiers Banned From Complaining About Rotten Food.

UK Military Accommodation.

Housing Scandal For British Armed Forces.

Military Housing UK.

Good nutrition and accommodation must surely be a priority if you intend to get out the best in your soldiers? Nutrition is vital when it comes to athletes, so I’m imagining that it is even more vital that soldiers are treated well.

I find it extraordinary that they have issues like this in the “developed world.“

These are not fighters in combat, but fighters on base.

I’d heard about other issues concerning the U.S. forces and NATO-countries, but I had no idea that the UK struggles with basic food and accommodation….

United American Patriots & The Royal British Legion.

I’m guessing that this is partly to blame for the amount of soldiers who leave the UK military in addition to the recruitment crisis. The UK government has already revealed that they will recruit women into combat roles in addition to “commonwealth citizens,“ in order to combat the lack of willingness to join the Army among young men in the UK. If you’ve never lived in the UK and have zero ties to the territory, there will be an option to get recruited into the main fighting body if you come from a Commonwealth Country.

 

The Heated Topic Of Immigration Wordlwide & What Sovereignty Actually Means.

There is a proposal on the table that apparently will be voted on and discussed later this month, concerning making it illegal to be a critic of mass-migration, and I guess its effects, which are notable (historically speaking). This is to be done in order to initialize and/or continue with mass migration into Europe without any criticism. I wonder if this makes it illegal to review and talk about History books and/or whether or not it will also make it illegal to write that Norway was converted by the sword, which was the case, only that it was the sword of Christianity. History gives us the key to who we are and what sort of challenges we might face as nations/individuals and how to tackle these …  Here is the video:

Ok … now over to what I was actually going to write about:

I was quite surprised when I read an article a while back about anti-immigration riots in South Africa. It was of interest since it depicted Africans demonstrating against other Africans entering into their territory. I linked to the article here on my site and here I’ve found a video about anti-immigration sentiments in Israel.

Once again it illustrates how we all tackle a lot of the same issues regardless of where we live. With our current technology it makes it increasingly easier to compare cultures and how different population groups react to the same challenges.

What is of particular interest in the video is how the two Israeli women start shouting at one another since they disagree about whether or not they should take in the migrants.

Attitudes and behaviours that Westerners seem to regard as outdated are well and alive in other parts of the world, which you quickly realise when reading about the persecution of Christians.

Enforcing certain values and a clear identity will not happened quietly as anything that falls on the outside of the spectrum has to be removed or silenced. This paints a brutal picture that feels foreign in today’s “liberated” Western world of “Thou What Thou Wilt.” It makes sense to say that “when you go to Rome you do as the Romans” and unless you do have an unhealthy fixation on, let’s say, Islam; it makes sense to say that if you live in a Muslim majority country, then once again “you do as the Romans.”

You are a guest; which is why you’ll have to pay your respects or re-locate.

When observing how “respecting other’s sovereignty” plays out in practise though it actually means that you quietly stand by as genuine minorities (such as LGBTQ characters in Russia) are treated poorly, while political dissenters are sent into camps  (China), while it also means silently supporting terrifying human-rights violations (Saudi Arabia) all in the name of respecting “sovereignty” and a claim to practise ones “identity.”

Even in Western societies that are officially trying to be “bring-your-own-beer-countries”; they do want to enforce something, which is a normless society. This means that if you actually do stand for what has traditionally been the identity of your territory, well then you must be a bad-guy. Having “no-identity” becomes the identity, in this strange, awkward case. There is no culture, there is no heritage, there is no history, there is no nothing. Only a territory that you define upon your arrival. 

Even though I’ve been writing about how important it is to respect a Nations sovereignty and identity, I have to admit that in this I’ve failed on a small-scale by sending words of comfort out to persecuted Christians who in some cases are breaking the rules of the territory that they find themselves in by possessing a Bible and/or being open about their beliefs.

I’m also failing at “bringing my own beer” into identity-less Western territories as I’ve always integrated. This though becomes an issue if you live in a territory where “a deconstruction” is taking place. It means that you are aligned with the old (what the territory used to be) rather than the new (what the territory is becoming).

This might then oddly enough transform you into a dissenter by you successfully integrating into an established identity that is being killed on purpose by whatever establishment…..

Another example of sovereignty violation is this: if environmental pollutants are to be fought against effectively it also means being “rude,” since boots on the ground will be necessary in Africa and Asia to crack down on the worst “climate-offenders;” so there goes your peace and respect for sovereignty!

I wonder sometimes if  outspoken celebrities and spokespeople truly understand the natural conclusion of what they are stating and supporting….If you are an actual eco-warrior, well then you can’t respect anyone’s Sovereignty!

Pollution is really and truly a global problem, and we in the West are not the worst offenders.

I’m mentioning this to showcase how difficult  it can be to have certain stated principles, only to realise that things might not be as easy as previously thought…

It might also be worth mentioning that global corporations can in some ways operate like “one world governments” for the simple reason that they are their own thing completely and are everywhere, regardless of Nation or Continent.

Their influence is greater than anything else I’m sure.

National Sovereignty is consistently disrespected by world leaders who initiate sanctions and/or declare war against the leadership of other Nations, who they deem unfit to rule. Hence, no respect for sovereignty, nor the enforcement of National Identity.

The reason for this is probably due to how painful it actually is to witness Nation-State enforcement of territorial identity and also (in most cases I’m guessing) how unprofitable it is if Nation States break away from unions where so-and-so is/are the decision maker/s and/or big player/s.

Back to the migration issue; people are protective of their environment because they don’t want to lose out on their resources, which is one of the reasons as to why people have trough the ages “fortified their positions.” Something that is illegal in today’s Western Europe, unless you are a member of the establishment…..

Previous enforcement of ones right to be in a territory is also why we have distinct population groups, because group such and such was not erased by being absorbed into someone else’s “thing.” Hence in order to have a Nation and secure the continuation of said Nation you actually have to exclude, which a lot of people instinctively do; but this is never going to look pretty, especially not on a large-scale, which is what I’m talking about in this entry.

This of course makes an “open world” scary since it is a dangerous illusion; nobody is really interested in being squeezed out, not even those who are initially “open and inclusive,” when all of a sudden they wake up to find out that they have become a minority and that their claim to whatever territory and influence is null and void.

Their definition of their territory that they once upon a time wanted to generously share with others, have slipped and doesn’t include them any more. They simply lost it.

(It might be an idea to note that citizenship also becomes bizarre in “an open world” since citizenship is merely a piece of paper in this case. You territory belongs to everyone, and anyone can be of your territory. The same can be said of legislation tackling digital abuse and scams online. What you get is digital-global-anarchy since a criminal operation from one Nation abusing the member of another cannot really be prosecuted. Which governing body is supposed to police human interactions over the global internet?)

There are those who clearly do not see the arrivals of large hordes of other population groups as problematic. This is precisely why the arguing becomes so ugly, because those who end up being exposed to these transformations have a tendency of being very loud and extremely upset when their home-areas change suddenly. Especially if trust breaks down and inter-racial and/or inter-ethnic violence (the targeting of those who are not part of your in-group) becomes a thing.

The same can be noted now with anti-immigration sentiments here on the continent, that would appear to be reserved for Africans and Arabs primarily, but are also extended to other European Nationalities as well, in addition to heated arguments between individuals who look just the same (due to being members of the same Nation), because of disagreements over whether or not EurAbia or EurAfrica ought to be forcefully created, regardless of the human cost in the process.

I think it can be argued with certainty that trying to unite Europeans was a challenge great enough, just like trying to unite Africa is a monumental challenge due to inter-Racial diversity.

Now it can be witnessed that it is all falling apart here in “Europe,” since it was simply “too much, too quickly, too soon.” Rather than admitting that this has all been a spectacular political failure (unless you want chaos) the political establishment in Brussels appear hellbent on forcing their vision on everyone else, regardless of whether or not people actually want this in great numbers…

Things are already getting ugly since the survival of one “ideological vision” in this case, means the destruction of the other.

The good news is: that this is how humans behave, regardless of where they might be….

Article 13.

I’ve been seeing an information video in my feed on YouTube now for a while and finally decided to check out this whole “Article 13” business.

When reading about it here: https://www.verdict.co.uk/what-is-eu-article-13/, my first thought was that it makes it easier to navigate the “freedom of speech waters” in “Europe.”

I’m confused and so are probably tons of other people as well since freedom of speech, free flow of information and democracy is constantly being hailed as one of the reasons as to why we are so very awesome.

In the next news article or sentence though we apparently do not have freedom of speech, since there are elements who are angrily lobbying for the re-introduction of anti-blasphemy laws and establishment characters who are constantly re-defining what “hate-speech” is and isn’t.

People cannot really make up their mind if we are to live in “The People’s Democratic Republic of Europe” or whether or not we are to remain “free.”

With the establishment of Article 13 as laid out in the article above there will be more clarity, so that there is no doubt that there is no such thing as “free-flow-of-information-and-opinions” in Europe, and that what was fought for by our ancestors was a total waste.

It will be the digital platform that you are using who’ll have to make sure that whatever  guidelines are followed. So then we will finally know the truth about what sort of continent we live in, rather than these murky waters where we are being lied to left-right-and-centre and aren’t quite sure what is left or right or up or down.

On the other hand it is being said by social media platforms, etc; that this is a monumental disaster when it comes to content creators. Ok I thought to myself; but this affects those who don’t own their copyright and don’t create their own material and/or use what is available to all such as classical music. Right?

Apparently this Article 13 business can be abused and stretched out to such an extent that the internet will become dull and uninteresting; cracking down on this and that…

…Such as linking to articles, which is something I often do here on my own blog in order to share information, such as my own experiences which I see reflected in other people’s experiences across Europe. I see my own story mirrored in what citizens journalists are sharing on the internet, whereas when I read the mainstream media, I’m usually not sure what the heck I’m looking at. Sharing content is what people do on Facebook as well when they share links to articles or videos that they enjoy…

Since I’m a YouTube creator and a YouTube partner, and since I’m constantly sharing online articles on my blog, I’m throwing myself on this hashtag, even though I’m not quite sure yet how this will affect my own YouTube channel and what I do as a musician. In the name of YouTube/Internet solidarity; here we go: #SaveYourInternet

 

Cellphone Usage Linked To Cancer, Cultural Enrichment in Germany, & A Friendly Reminder That Winter Is Coming!

That moment when it’s late in the evening and you think to yourself: “hey, I’m releasing a new album tomorrow & I think I need to remind my followers,” only to log into a social media account and be greeted by this:

growing pains

I guess that this falls under the category of “growing pains” in order to successfully establish EurAfrica or EurAbia or whatever they want to call the boat…

For some strange reason it brings back fond memories of an entry a wrote a while back, where I went back in time to describe why on earth I support an armed population.

You will never think about self-defence or weapons until you feel like you need them!

Just like Americans have dreams, well so do the various Nations of Europe have dreams; the people who live on this continent deserve to pursue happiness without having their paths obstructed by evil such as this: The People’s Democratic Republic of Europe.

On that note I’ll add a link to an article I saw a while back about cellphones being linked to cancer. An increasing number of young people are coming down with brain tumours. Not good, not good at all.

Beware of your phone!!!

With those things in mind I might add that I’ve been thinking lately that every generation has to deal with existential threats, the issue with today’s society is that we have been “domesticated” to such an extent as humans that we don’t necessarily see any. I somewhat touched upon our general vulnerability in this entry of mine 30 Reasons To Be Grateful And/Or Things To Look For… and hope that maybe that will alert some of my followers or others who might bump into this blog. My own foraging this year was not exactly successful, so I’m hoping that we’ll have a merciful winter, with plenty of food, water and power!

When You Try To Grow Pumpkins….

Oh yes … by the way … there is an album launch tomorrow & I’ll also be doing a LIVE stream on my YouTube channel on Friday! So see you then! Toodle-oo!

Brett Kavanaugh & The Persecution Of American Conservatives.

After watching the impassioned statement from Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh I’m seriously considering getting myself a go-pro camera & a calendar diary just in case someone jumps out of the woodwork in the future and accuse me of any wrong doing. My own CV in regards to behaviour is so squeaky clean that you would think that I’d never even been close to anything resembling rock’n’roll, yet in the light of the methods that are being used to get rid of Christians, Conservatives or anyone who opposes the culture war and political war that is currently unfolding on both sides of the Atlantic, you evidently have to be prepared for anything coming your way, whether you write/report, create, run for office or engage in charitable efforts…

In one of my unpublished entries that I’m currently working on I compare the current political drama in the U.S.A. to a circus. The behaviour is so unhinged and desperate that it becomes hard not to laugh despite all the tragedy; for a circus it certainly is when high school yearbooks and the likes are being scanned for any kind of damning evidence. The next level would be to go after people’s kindergarten records.

All I have to say is: 1 – what a mess.

And: 2 – what a fine display of human “rationality.”

In addition I’ve also received a couple of very troubling emails depicting the treatment of conservatives across the pond. (The highlights are my doing). 

“The film was crowd funded on Indiegogo by over 29,000 people, who gave over $2.3mm to make sure this story was told. It’s an uplifting story of justice and the men and women in law enforcement who helped bring Kermit Gosnell to trial. While taking a hard look at the facts, the movie is not graphic or explicit. It’s rated PG-13 and is appropriate for teenagers. If you can handle an episode of Law & Order or NCIS you can see Gosnell.

The film has faced opposition from the very beginning when Kickstarter kicked the campaign off their platform. It aced opposition in the production of the film. And recently NPR refused to run advertising describing Kermit Gosnell as an abortion. See the movie that shines a light on a story the mainstream media refused to cover.” – Taken from an email reg. a movie that has been made about an abortion Doctor in America.

“Dear Fellow Patriot,

By now I’m sure you’ve heard of Facebook and Twitter’s efforts to silence conservatives, but that’s was just the tip of the iceberg.

Just last month, MasterCard colluded with the Southern Poverty Law Center and other left-wing fringe organizations to shut down my Freedom Center’s online fundraising without so much as a warning.

The Southern Poverty Law Center blacklisted my organization as a “hate group” because we dare question the Left’s agenda, and now big finance is using this bogus label to come after us.

Shortly after MasterCard launched this crippling attack, Discover Card came after us. And now, I have no choice but to take these credit card processors to court.

Because this isn’t about me. This is about you and your free speech. The Left doesn’t care if you’re a politician, a pundit or a plumber — if you don’t embrace their radical agenda, they want to destroy you.

I’ll be honest — the legal fees are steep. But a generous donor has pledged to match all donations between now and September 30th. So anything you give today will have double the impact.”Taken from an email reg. Armed Forces Connect & David Horowitz Freedom Centre.

 

I guess the best thing to do is to voice your support, pray, and aid people financially if you are in a position to do so.

To be honest I don’t like the visible political division and hostility, it’s sad and very much troubling. Yet after watching some short Twitter clips the other day, my bet is that things are only going to get worse. The line between ganging up on a person hurling insults vs. ganging up on a person to physically assault them is not very long; at least that’s what I’m thinking.

The aim of those on the opposite political spectrum is silly as well since you’ll always have diversity of opinion. Even if you were to go after everyone who disagrees with you, there is no guarantee that your very own child will grow up to become just like you or that your best-friend and comrade will remain in the exact same political or spiritual camp for the entirety of their lives.

The fight is futile; but I guess the other side is strong in the faith, even though they don’t know that they have one……….
