“Machinal” by Sophie Treadwell.

This is a dark playwright written by Sophie Treadwell that stabs you in the heart like an ice-cold dagger from hell itself.

It is filled to the brim with dark energy much like “Wuthering Heights;” which shocked me due to an exclusively evil and menacing cast of characters. After reading it I was amazed that something that cruel could have been brought into the world by a woman.

“Machinal” is at least a very quick read and will be completed in only a few hours; this is a clear advantage that it has over the aforementioned work above.

For those who like to fill their life with negative energy and darkness I can highly recommend “We Have Always Lived In The Castle.” (which was also authored by a woman) … or season one of the tv-show “American Horror Story,” which left me feeling hollowed out after watching it as it depicted the one rotting relationship after the other.

If you enjoy watching people arguing and treating each other horribly then you should certainly give the first season a go; if not I would highly recommend watching movies based on Jane Austin’s work such as “Pride & Prejudice” and “Sense & Sensibility.”

“Machinal,” in contrast, tells the story of a young female who rejects the machine that she’s been born into much like a body rejecting a new organ.

The other characters are perfectly happy with their “hamster-wheel” lives and appear to be at one with the machinery that they are using, revelling in their puppet-like existence and activities, going about things without much thought concerning their anchored, rooted state.

She, on the other hand, has a strained, pained relationship with her mother and doesn’t like modern-day commuting as she feels suffocated by it. She doesn’t like being an office worker, doesn’t like her husband (even though he never does anything evil towards her), and doesn’t like motherhood. She eventually self-destructs by killing her spouse finalising her true imprisonment, which is interesting considering that the murder was an attempt to achieve final liberation from a much dreaded existence.

Like a bug in the system she is eventually rejected by a machine that she was never really compatible with.

If anything the book perfectly recounts the horror of total disconnection between humans. The work therefore gives off a rather superficial and sterile vibe. It reminds me of “Requiem For A Dream” which is one of the darkest and most tragic movies I’ve ever seen.

The book was impossible to put down, since Treadwell was able to hook me in due to my curiosity, that being said I did not enjoy it very much.

One of my all-time favourite books is “Frankenstein” by Mary Shelley. I was astonished that such an undeniable classic had been authored by a woman when I came across it, as men dominate the landscape when it comes to the titles of “greatest ever.” Yet Mary Shelley managed to reach that level of gender-neutrality in her work, when you don’t have to, nor want to, see things through a feminist lens, but can just enjoy the work and thankfully say that artistic greatness knows no gender, place, race, or whatever.

The same can be said of  J.K.Rowling as well. You pick up her work and just enjoy her world-building without ever giving gender much thought until you all of a sudden realise that Harry Potter has a mom, rather than a dad.

Treadwell’s work is anchored in a rejection of all and everything as the protagonist cannot cope with her gender or more importantly: her gender in combination with her socio-economic status.

That says more about the internal outsider sentiment of her main character or Treadwell herself rather than society in general, as the other characters seem content with being firmly fixed within the ticking clockwork of the cold, uncaring, “machine.”

In fact it is as if thought the characters integrate into the monotony of their mechanical equipment, or maybe humans always were and the machines simply mimic us….

If anything Treadwell will make you think and therein lays her greatness. Even though I didn’t enjoy reading “Machinal” I couldn’t put it down and found myself writing this long entry, after her work had triggered a whole arsenal of thoughts.

 

United American Patriots & The Royal British Legion.

An online petition was being passed around a while back about an imprisoned American soldier, wronged by his own government. This evening I received a mass email describing another horrifying case. This is the website of an organisation called:  United American Patriots   They help forgotten and betrayed US fighters.

It wouldn’t surprise me if there are similar cases over here in European countries as well; if that’s the case then it’s well hidden, which would make sense considering that the Norwegian government, just to pick one example, has repeatedly denied in the past that Norway is at war, even though we have veterans and have suffered casualties due to contributing to America’s numerous war efforts around the world…..Yet we are apparently not fighting anyone and have officially no enemies anywhere…..Hopefully the current administration have stopped the official denial, because how can you aid veterans who officially do not exist?

I’ll paste in the email I received from UAP below. What truly stood out to me was the bit about the Afghan who received a US Citizenship; read the whole thing. It’s freaky to say the least. This is the sort of injustice you may risk by enlisting in the U.S.A.:

Dear Berit,

I am so scared for my son’s life that I’m writing you this e-mail today, even though we’ve never met.

My name is Renee Myers and my son is Sgt. Derrick Miller of the Maryland National Guard.

Derrick is the kind of man every mother wants her son to grow up to be – strong, kind and loyal. He’s a proud daddy who adores his two daughters – this photo is one of my favorites of him holding his oldest daughter, Karina.

But what I love the most about my son is that he felt it was his duty as an American to join the National Guard. In fact, he volunteered for two of his three deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan.

Now, I wish I could go back in time and tell him not to…

Because for volunteering to defend our nation, Derrick has been sentenced to life in prison for doing exactly what the Army trained him to do!

You see, while on a combat mission in September of 2010, Derrick watched an Afghan national walk through his unit’s defense perimeter. The same man had been detained the day before under suspicion of driving insurgents to a nearby combat firefight.

So to be safe, Derrick and another U.S. Soldier took him into custody for questioning with an Afghan interpreter.

Derrick asked the man why he was within the American defense perimeter. First, the man claimed to be an electrician responding to a downed power line. Then he claimed to be there to fix a water pump. Either way, he had no tools with him.

The Afghan grew more and more agitated as Derrick continued asking questions. Suddenly, he grabbed for Derrick’s weapon.

Derrick reacted immediately – firing and killing the suspect.

Just days after the incident, Derrick was arrested and charged with “premeditated murder” of the Afghan insurgent!

For eight terrible months, we waited for the trial that would finally set the record straight and bring Derrick home to us. After all, there were witnesses who saw the whole incident and would testify on his behalf.

But instead, our government turned its back on Derrick – a decorated U.S. Soldier – to appease Afghanistan officials.

Remember, another Soldier had witnessed the interrogation and confirmed Derrick’s account. But he changed his story after the government threatened to charge him with accessory to murder.

The other witness was the Afghan translator. And in exchange for testifying against Derrick, he was granted U.S. citizenship.

Yes, our government brought him here to the U.S. and paid for him to live in an on-base hotel for six months with food, a personal van, and a $630 per month allowance – all provided at taxpayer expense!

Worst of all, the Army destroyed every bit of forensic evidence that could have proved Derrick was acting in self-defense. There were no photos. No autopsy. Nothing.

But I still believed the government would do the right thing. Instead, I held hands with my husband and Derrick’s wife, Katherine, and listened in shock as Derrick was convicted and sentenced to life in prison.

His feet were shackled, his hands cuffed to a leather belt around his waist, and, just like that, my only child was taken from me.

Since then, the world has simply fallen apart for his precious family.

The military immediately stopped Derrick’s paychecks. Derrick’s wife and my husband and I had pooled together all our money to hire a civilian attorney to represent Derrick. It cost $50,000 – every cent we had.

Now, with no money in the bank, his wife couldn’t pay their mortgage, utilities, car payment, or Derrick’s student loans.

Derrick had always worked two jobs so his wife could stay home after their babies were born. Now she can’t. The girls are so little and they don’t understand. They ask her over and over again, “Why can’t Daddy come home?”

They wake up at night and cry for him. And honestly, sometimes so do I.

Berit, I can’t bear the thought of the girls growing up without their dad. Or Derrick not being able to scoop them up in his arms before they’re grown. But we have only one hope left now…

You see, we got a phone call from United American Patriots (UAP), an organization that helps Service Members who have been unfairly indicted for their split-second actions in combat.

The good folks at UAP know firsthand that you can’t send U.S. Soldiers into terrorist combat zones and second-guess their actions from a desk in Washington. And their support has been instrumental in getting Derrick to this point.

But even though the end is in sight, UAP must raise money to cover hours of legal research, expert witnesses, and legal motions throughout this parole process. UAP is a non-profit organization, which means they don’t receive any funding from the federal government – only private donations from patriotic Americans.

It also means that I’m going to take a deep breath and ask you one of the hardest questions I’ve ever asked another person:

Can you help me fight to free my son by making a donation of $35, $50, $100 or more to UAP?

Your gift is tax-deductible. And it will help us pay for Derrick’s parole hearings – and help other innocent Service Members who have been unfairly charged, too.

The federal government has already spent hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars to convict Derrick and grant U.S. citizenship to the Afghan who testified against him.

But I must rely on the generous hearts of people like you to save my son.

That’s why I’m writing you today – to do what I can as the mother of a U.S. Soldier to find good-hearted people out there who care about defending our nation’s troops.

Our attorney is going above and beyond the call of duty to fight for Derrick. But the parole process is unpredictable and will cost us at least $30,000. It’s money we simply don’t have.

Can you please help UAP fund this legal battle and bring Derrick home to us?

Your $35 contribution could be the difference between letting my son rot in prison for another decade for a “crime” he didn’t commit… or bringing him home to me and his girls where he belongs right away!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for any help you can send to UAP today.

Yours truly,
Mrs. Renee Myers

P.S. As a member of the National Guard who volunteered for two of his three tours of duty, my son has sacrificed so much for our country. Yet in return, our government has taken away his family and his freedom! Right now Derrick desperately needs to know that he hasn’t been forgotten! Thank you for whatever amount you can send today to give him hope and to help bring him home!

This is a very famous organisation here in the U.K. that supports British veterans:

Today’s Brain Popcorn!

Behold the most gracious display of profound wisdom I’ve ever seen!

I feel lucky that I can bask in the digital shadows of such infinite glory – or at least I can until the power goes again!

If you ever had any questions then don’t linger anymore; the Georgia Guidestones have it all figured out!

Of course “their” imagination is of such magnitude that “they” had to go for 10 rules or would that be *drumroll* 10 secular commandments? I guess it would have been too original and too edgy to go for, let’s say; 9 or 11.

 

  1. Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.
  2. Guide reproduction wisely — improving fitness and diversity.
  3. Unite humanity with a living new language.
  4. Rule passion — faith — tradition — and all things with tempered reason.
  5. Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.
  6. Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.
  7. Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
  8. Balance personal rights with social duties.
  9. Prize truth — beauty — love — seeking harmony with the infinite.
  10. Be not a cancer on the earth — Leave room for nature — Leave room for nature.

 

Hmm … there are multiple ways to interpret this “sanctimonious” text, in fact I have some wonderful ideas considering that truth is to be pursued!

There can surely be nothing more noble than to pursue honesty in all things and to rule in accordance with it – come what may!

I’m not going to tire people with my personal definition of exceptional governance, (since everyone’s definition of that would differ to a certain degree) but I surely know what would be in my interest!

Who is to say that a Brand New World Order would be a bad thing since a great number of these commandments are extremely flexible if you think about it. And most importantly who is to say that a Brand New World Order would follow any of the these “assumed New World Order” guidelines?

Thanks for the laugh “Georgia Guidestones,” it certainly put a smile on my face.

Trolling is always good for the soul. Always.

Clooney Collusion

Today’s Brain Popcorn!
This article is an interesting read. The conspiracy and the threads are not difficult to follow if reading this when awake.
These were the things that stood out to me:
1- the vulnerability of being an outspoken celebrity officially concerned with “human rights” and the well-being of others.
2- that Clooney operated a business accused of sweat-shop activities.
3- that Clooney was seemingly taking advantage of cheap Mexican labour.
4- that the refugee situation was profitable for the Clooney’s due to funds that they were given in order to established seemingly well-intended refugee-programs. Meaning that they lose out financially if refugees are brought back home.
5- McCain’s involvement with rougue-weapon industry elements.
6- how quickly political alignments can change; even resulting in the official support of Neo-Nazi groups in Ukraine & Al Qaeda groups in Syria. This obviously contradicts our popular media narratives and the endless “moral high-ground posturing” by our representatives.
7- how photos of a Syrian boy was used as propaganda to paint Assad in a negative light, when the boy’s father blamed the family’s misery on the insurgents. This is another example of children being used to manipulate the masses.
8- how a war has to be sold, just like you would sell a product or a service.
9- how the initiation of warfare is justified time and time again in order to “save lives.” It is of course very reasonable to promote total destabilisation and warfare if you are on a quest to save little children…*insert sarcasm*
10- what first stood out to me was the example of property rights being violated once again within a Western Nation. The reason as to why this instantly stood out to me is that “property rights” is constantly highlighted as a fundamental right in the Western World. Yet it is easy to bypass and annihilate this through clever legislation and taxes, as can be seen in Norway, or through a proper land-grab, as described in this article. Your rights are only respected as long as the State-Apparatus leave you alone. If you all of a sudden find yourself on the government’s radar due to what happens to be yours, legally, or by digging your nose into other’s business, you might find out that your rights have been mysteriously revoked…Human rights only seem to be valid as long as they don’t pose a threat to those who are in power…
11- I sense that this article is in tune with the “other side of the spectrum;” meaning: Russia. Just like the Russians like to point out visible NATO expansion, they also criticise destabilisation efforts in the Middle East. Nothing of what can be read in this article will make its way into our mainstream media narrative, or at least I don’t think so. They have their own agenda and their own storyline that they fervently promote, meaning that articles like these are reserved for the internet and/or “other” media outlets. I’m also guessing that nothing will overshadow Clooney’s sanctimonious status, much like the “bullet proof” cult of adoration surrounding former U.S. President Barack Obama.
I highly recommend reading this article in full, I found it most interesting.

The Clooneys are gearing up for resetting their political scheme on the backs of their babies through what’s left of George’s film career.  His new movie “Suburbicon”, which stars Soros and Podesta run and funded“Enough Project” co-horts Matt Damon and Julianne Moore, will be at the Venice Film Festival, the Toronto Film Festival and others throughout  the end of the summer.  Expect the Media Matter Trump takedown talking poins…and even some on Brexit is a safe bet…all throughout the red carpet interviews and press junkets for this propaganda piece about 1950’s “racist” America keeping in mind the extent to which Clooney and his wife are working behind the scenes to undermine the very democracy they claim to support through hate propaganda they claim to abhor. Take into consideration everything in either “George Clooney:  Enemy of Democracy”, “Amal Clooney:  Enemy of Democracy” or “The…

Some Interesting Articles To Read.

“Bishop Athanasius Schneider of Kazakhstan, 57, told an interviewer from Milan’s Il Giornale last week that “the phenomenon of so-called “immigration” represents an orchestrated and long-prepared plan by international powers to radically change the Christian and national identities of the European peoples.” (READ THE ARTICLE HERE)

This is the conclusion I’ve reached as well by simply looking at the placement of certain population groups within all of Europe’s Nations. It is obvious that it is a long term de-stabilisation plan by people who hate us to no end. 

I will let other people compile potential enemy lists over who could possibly be guilty… It’s not like people aren’t compiling these kind of lists already….

…some theories are more popular than others…..and will continue to gain ground by the hour I’m sure…….

(I’m personally not a big fan of conspiracy theories. I find a great number of them troubling, for the simple reason that it might make sense, but then it doesn’t if the accused group stand to lose. All I see are people who will lose in the end when reading or hearing of popular narratives of conspiracy. What would make sense would be to think broader, or maybe I overestimate people. In fact I’m suspecting that that might be the case. If I’m guilty of over-thinking then Europe & America are standing face to face with a threat that is shooting itself in the foot.)

With the current culture war and student movements on both sides of the Atlantic, not to forget the underground “scene” of self-taught individuals on the opposite political spectrum who openly blog or hack while being in “stealth mode,” I’m sure that boats will be rocked and alignments change, whether it is for the better or for the worst.

Loyalties might swiftly change and old narratives of friendship might suddenly be forgotten.

Leaders such as Sebastian Kurz & Matteo Salvini, not to forget “freedom fighters” such as the imprisoned Tommy Robinson are the kind of types that will salvage the mothership that is Europe. If they fail we will see the uprising of what their critics accuse them of being, “the great evil” that the mainstream media think they see in U.S. President Donald J.Trump. If the U.S.A. and Europe are not salvaged politically, there will be an attempt to do so from the bottom up. That is a given. There will always be those who refuse to give up. I predict that the situation in America will become especially dire in the years to come, unless the culture issue and the demographic issue is solved. 

So where does this strange self-destructive attitude we can observe in The Western World come from? Is it possible to manufacture Ethno-masochism? Well apparently yes…

Don’t expect that these type of initiatives won’t backfire though.

They do and they will. If your people win a fight, whether culturally, demographically or out on the battlefield, then you ought to remember how you won, because your enemies surely will!

And those who are clever will study closely, h-o-w y-o-u w-o-n!

The problem with Western culture today, is that we are neither equipped to deal with victory nor defeat. Or that is the aim of political correctness. The aim is clearly to pacify people and ensure that the fight or the battle is lost before it even starts.

The goal is obviously to have a Nation caving in on itself, self-annihilating, with the one institution falling after the other like domino bricks, and an angry populace wondering what the heck is going on, eventually resulting in violence in the streets and disorder, so that enemy elements placed within the Nation can initiate their part while their partners come in from the outside.

You have to be mean (by today standards) to win. People are inherently mean and people will be mean, even those who normally aren’t, the question is rather, can you be mean in a clever fashion without your operation backfiring either on you or your children?

That is the question and that is a good one indeed, all things considered.

From Africa Digest

 

I don’t really follow “trade wars” or “tariff wars” and find this quote to be interesting:

“The Commerce Department is currently investigating whether foreign auto imports pose a risk to national security.”

You can read more here: Germany Willing To Cut Tariffs.

Here is a genuine Russia collusion. I remember reading somewhere, sometime, somehow, about Russia providing energy to Eastern European Nations and using this politically, funny enough I didn’t catch that Western European Nations were in on it too… Maybe they should get their power from Norway instead 😛 Funny how everyone is spinning the Russia narrative as far as the U.S. is concerned when Europeans are blatantly dealing massively with the official “eternal-bad-guy-Putin.” Remember; everything is always Russia’s fault. Hilarious. I also recall that I read in a French newspaper, somewhere, sometime, somehow, that the then French President had lots of interests (or maybe it was France Inc.) in Iraq due to business dealings with Saddam, so their opposition to the war was not so much humanitarian as it was money related. Funny enough this story was confirmed when I read something else concerning the Iraq war….It is always interesting to figure out what drives people’s “official concern.” Lately I’ve been wondering why American celebrities don’t starve themselves for all of those kids who’ve been separated from their parents in inner-city America, but then again, I guess you have to come from anywhere but America for Hollywood to bother…..

Whether you dislike or like the current U.S. President I strongly recommend reading this: “Trump – The Art Of The Deal” by Donald J.Trump & Tony Schwartz.

Here is a most intriguing article from The New York Times: The New York Times Praising Donald J.Trump – before he ran for office.

Here are some selected quotes from the article, published in 1984….

“Donald J. Trump is the man of the hour.” – The New York Times.

“He deserves full credit for his success,’ says another builder.”

“Mayor Koch says that, indeed, what is good for Donald Trump is often good for New York.”

“To others, the notion that Mr. Trump seems to be able to do just about anything he sets his mind to is terrifying.”

“Roy M. Cohn, Mr. Trump’s friend and attorney, adds: ‘He has an uncanny sense of knowing that something is a good deal when it looks dismal to everyone else.”

“That Mr. Trump was able to obtain the location, when every real-estate developer in the world would have done just about anything to get it, is testimony to Donald Trump’s persistence and to his skills as a negotiator.” (my highlighting).

“He is an almost unbelievable negotiator,’ says Irving Fischer of HRH Construction. ‘I don’t worship at the shrine of Donald Trump,’ he says, ‘but our company has given up trying to negotiate costs with him. We just say: ‘Tell us what you want, you’re going to get it anyway.”

“He says that his concern for nuclear holocaust is not one that popped into his mind during any recent made-of-television movie. He says that it has been troubling him since his uncle, a nuclear physicist, began talking to him about it 15 years ago.”

“When he finally speaks up, he says hat he is on the commission because the young men who went to Vietnam got a bad deal – which, about the worst thing that can happen to anyone.”

“The day before he has sent $3,000 to an unfortunate family he has red about in the newspaper, something he does frequently, according to Mrs. Foerderer.”

“That Mr. Trump builds shops and apartments for the world’s wealthiest people makes him that much more prone to attack.”

“If you go with Donald to see an art collection, he’s not that interested. He’d rather look out the windows at building.”

“His wife describes him as an all-American boy who likes country music best and prefers a steak and aked potato to anything called cuisine.”

“Mrs. Trump says they like to attend Broadway openings an that they frequent the ballet and opera. Mrs. Trump is active in support of the United Cerebral Palsy Fund and other charities, as well as the New York City Opera. She is also an active supporter of Ronald Reagan.”

“He has dificulty now figuring out who his real friends are, as billionaires will.”

The White House Chief of Staff made waves online after untangling an American flag: “Once A Marine, Always A Marine.”

I enjoyed this article written by Steve Hilton until he wrote this:

“But we have to recognize that the melting pot is cracking. Years of uncontrolled immigration – and a creeping acceptance of separatism, boosted by identity politics – risk importing the disastrous doctrine of “multiculturalism” that is prevalent in Europe.”

The U.S.A. has been a multi-racial construct, arguably since the very beginning, with absolute “separatism,” before the federal government made segregation “illegal.” I say illegal, since people now self-segregate, which roughly means that the “melting-pot” never really worked on a street level. What I recognise in Europe is imported American multiculturalism, so I’m not sure which planet Hilton is living on… I find it annoying to see such lies in digital “print.”

Radical “multiculturalism” is a relatively new phenomenon in Europe. There is a reason as to why Europe never became Muslim and there is also a reason as to why we are so very pale……One foreigner now and then doesn’t really make much of a difference, but importing hordes of people will ruin the peace and comprise the integrity of your Nation.

It is especially dangerous if you mass import young men, who are in their “peak aggression” age.

Multiculturalism never really works, regardless of where in the world people try it, it always results in “separatism” and can only be held together by a rough, police state. It always results in fragmentation. Mixing on a large-scale only happens as a result of unhinged violence, where the men of one tribe are killed off and their women raped.

Inter-Ethnic diversity is a challenge great enough.

Anyone who welcomes anything else is culturally and demographically suicidal. Nothing less.

People = culture.

People = behaviour patterns on average.

There is no such thing as “magic soil.” Period.

If you mass import people from Uganda into Norway, then you’ll get Uganda in Norway.

If you mass import Arabs into France, then you’ll get an Arab Nation in the middle of Europe.

If you mass import Chinese people into Canada, you’ll get China Inc. in Canada.

If you mass import people from Latino countries into the U.S.A, then the culture, the practises, the voting patterns and whatnot will be coloured by this.

Apparently it is very difficult to follow this kind of logic………

Any person who does not understand demographics should be banned from public service.  It is that dangerous to play around with. An increase in violence and division is a given….
