Freedom in Europe & Tommy Robinson. Freedom in U.S.A. & Roseanne Barr.

Standard

I became greatly troubled when I heard the news of how Tommy Robinson had been sentenced to 13 months in prison for standing outside a courthouse streaming from yet another grooming case. What I found especially worrying was that no one in the press were allowed to report on it, until the ban was lifted today (Thank God). Now I do not consider myself to be a member of the press, but I’m a civilian Westerner who participate in our societies, which is what we are meant to be doing … I sign petitions that are being passed around the digital world, I’ve sent some emails to local representatives asking about MicroPlastics in our drinking water, I’m helping out in the local community and I registered myself as a voter last year and campaigned within the family to get as many votes with me as possible down to the Norwegian embassy in London. I also shared information on my blog regarding the election and promoted the whole ordeal everywhere in order to inspire my fellow Norwegians to participate in the democratic process!

I sent an email to the local Parish council wondering if I could be of help, since I knew that there was a position open and that they struggle to get new people in. I was not eligible due to the particular EU deal that my country of origin has – but if I had been eligible I would have been very happy to help! I live in a small village and feel that I’m experiencing the best of England. My experience of this country is nothing but good. That being said I am seriously considering investing in Medieval Chain Mail for my next London trip … since it is illegal for people to protect themselves in this country……

I myself don’t have to worry about “Trucks of Peace” at the local Christmas market where I live, but I also understand that there is no guarantee that this Utopia will continue….

Today I saw #police officers with machine guns during church hours, standing right in front of where we had to walk to get to the morning service. "What on earth is this I thought? Is this how bad things have gotten?" I guess the security had a lot to do with what was being celebrated. #thebattleofbritain & the #royalairforce ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป Today we celebrated the #heroes of #ww2 & also saw young #cadets marching.

I live in one of the safest areas in the UK and can in many ways just turn a blind eye to the suffering and fears that other people in this country have to deal with, but I have not.

Whenever a person decides to voice their opinion there is usually a turning point and for me that was the one year anniversary for the attack on Charlie Hebdo in France.

Like many troublesome things … it all started with France…..

 

#JeSuisCharlie #CharlieHebdo #Solidarity

A post shared by The Commander In Chief (@thecommanderinchief1) on

You see … I lived there for a year and attended school there, so I know that you will never get any good grades at all, if you don’t participate in the exchange of ideas.ย Yes ladies and gentlemen, this is the beauty and the essence of France’s greatness. At least in my opinion. It is all about having your say and expressing yourself, being yourself, being YOU and celebrating libertรฉ, รฉgalitรฉ, fraternitรฉ!

Regardless of what you might want to believe, the French are fearless. They are not interested in their rights being taken from them, they are not interested in being treated unfairly, and will march out in the streets, throw their fist in the air, and let the whole world know what they think!

Sure, I do not envy anyone working within the French Government, as that must surely be a challenging endeavour. In fact, I would probably sleep in a bunker every single night if I was Macron.

Yet it is this passion and this celebration of individualism that makes France so very fascinating, even if the French are picky when it comes to how you speak their language….

A year after the vicious attack on Charlie Hebdo I couldn’t get over it, I couldn’t let it go. Nobody else seemed to care anymore. There were no hashtags, there were no flag-filters, people were busy with their own affairs and seemed like they had forgotten.

To me it was the day that I published my very first entry about the current continental crisis that we are standing face to face with in Europe today. At the time I didn’t know as much as I know now, I’ve changed somewhat, but I knew that I had to speak my mind and speak up for our part of the world, and whether people agree with my particular values or not; that is precisely what I did.

After this I’ve expressed my opinions online continuously and can’t understand for the love of God why Britain would be interested in deconstructing itself, a phenomenon that isn’t solely English, but a cultural and political issue that can be observed all over the Western world.

In fact I’ve started to wonder if there is a biological expiration date in the “coding” and whether or not this can be credited to the self-destruction mode that apparently has been activated among peopleย withย pale complexions all over the world regardless of geography….

But that would mean giving up on The West and I’m not willing to do that.ย 

I myself have never participated in any protests anywhere in the world and have absolutely no crime record at all whatsoever, anywhere. In fact, if one was to dig properly, nothing can be found, besides my opinions, my sense of humour and me sending slightly (in fact very) retarded messages to people I’ve considered my friends – because yes – I do like to troll people, and yes that will sometimes result in you falling flat on your face. That being said; if I know that I’ve been acting like a fool, I will also apologise.

The idea that I could all of a sudden be some kind of an enemy due to what I’ve liked on Facebook, re-grammed on Instagram or re-Tweeted on Twitter, seems absurd. If I was to be considered a criminal due to openly supporting the US President or for opposing deconstructionism in Europe, then we’ve officially dishonoured all of those who’ve died in the past to allegedly secure us our much envied freedoms…..

I’m asking myself why people have died for their countries if their legacy is to be overshadowed by “The People’s Democratic Republic of Europe,” and that is precisely the disgustingย monstrumย that we’ve degenerated into if you’ll get a SWAT team crashing through your front door at night for standing with your country of residency, rather than promoting the caliphate, burning the flag and/or demanding reparations due to some legitimate or un-legitimate offence in the past.

Am I asking the Germans for money? Am I suing them? Am I eating cake when Germans are killing themselves with their self-destructive policies? The answer to all of those questions is a resounding no. I am the last person interested in a German shouting at me, which they easily resort to it seems, but even though this is true I’m not popping the champagne when their Nation is going to shit. There are people out there who want reparations now because of the TransAtlantic slave-trade, there are people who try to play all kinds of cards due to colonisation: “Remove your flag – it is a sign of imperialistic oppression.” Do you want to import these type of attitudes into your country? Well not if you want your country to survive.

When I started sharing my concerns regarding Europe here on my blog I certainly didn’t sit here with a strategic master-plan. I’ve expressed my opinions as a European resident/citizen, and these concerns are legitimate. I do not have a go-bag underneath my bed, nor do I have 50 different fake passports in my safe, nor am I currently trying to destroy my own fingertips so as to make identification harder, nor do I have a stealth-Niqab at the ready.

If you live in a dictatorship you know that liking something on a social media platform, if you even have access to such a thing, can be the equivalence of firing a shot. There are a great number of Christians out there who live in constant fear that people will find out that they have a Bible in their household. People are afraid of speaking their minds all over the world and if one thing is to be said it is that you should never go into a fight or a battle if you are ill-prepared.

If the conclusion I reach regarding our current Europe is that you must have a grand strategy in place before you can even say something at all online, then we’ve already lost. Thankfully I read this evening that it is alright for people to share the news regarding Tommy Robinson’s arrest, and that was surely a great relief.ย 

Now; I’m not trying to say that Robinson is a Saint, I do not know the guy, have never met him, but I’ve seen some of his content. This man loves his country and hates what it is becoming, from what I can tell. He is also the last man who I would want to piss off, because believe me, if this man feels wronged or if he is on to something, he will not stop. I’ve seen how he has confronted those who try to bring him down and that is precisely why he is now in prison. ย He displays the same drive and energy that can be witnessed when mainstream media people are running after a person they want to get hold of and/or target. He is obsessed with the future of his own country and has risked everything for his cause. By throwing him into prison he has automatically been given the martyr status that any sensible opposition should have avoided. Whether he survives his very long sentence or not;ย he has become a symboland symbols never die.

It was clumsy to silence the press, it drew instant attention and made the story go viral. I mean look at this:ย http://www.breitbart.com/london/2018/05/26/redacted-arrested-for-redacted-outside-redacted-leeds-crown-court-issues-media-ban/

Since I’m a Westerner, who lives in a free democratic world, with freedom of speech as one of its/our greatest virtues – I haven’t exactly prepared for a battle. I represent the very individualism that our part of the world champions, but this also means that I’m not exactly meeting in secrecy with unofficial organisations that will have my back if I’m all of a sudden considered an official threat for being pro-English, pro-Europe, pro-French, pro-Scandinavia, pro-American – in other words – pro-West.

Am I guilty for being curious? And am I guilty if I care about the well-being of this country? You see that is the impression one can easily get….

Yesterday I got pissed off when I saw a Tweet from Gad Saad. It is certainly rich to sit over in Canada and ask oneself why on earth people aren’t talking about Mr.Robinson over here in Europe when the media has officially been told to shut up about a non-ethno-Nationalist being thrown into prison, where he will probably end up getting killed! Gad Saad doesn’t even live here, and if you all of a sudden suspect that you’ve woken up in the new USSR, then it certainly isn’t risk-free to address our current challenges, especially if you officially stand alone without any firm and/or confirmed alliances. Apparently this hasn’t crossed the mind of someone like Saad … if the gag order had not been revoked I could have concluded a much shorter entry by making a point of:

“what Mr.Robinson? There never was a Mr.Robinson in Section E-42856? Welcome to The People’s Democratic Republic of Europe!”

Thankfully I’m not ending a blog entry with these words … or at least not yet.

In other news this evening I saw that Roseanne Barr was thrown under the bus today by everyone; even Breitbart, after she Tweeted something insulting to Valerie Jarrett using the word “ape.” Now I’ve actually referred to myself as an ape in one of my older entries. I do believe it was “pale nordic ape” … but then again I do think that all humans think too greatly of themselves … we are all silly little apes caught up in silly little arguments, wasting away, consumed with petty disagreements, but I guess this thinking of mine is worthless in an age where any comment, and especially any insult, can become lethal ammunition if used right.

Roseanne Barr’s comment was clumsy and I think the reason as to why I didn’t get really, really, angry is because I’ve referred to myself as an ape in the past. Then again I cannot really see myself calling a brown-skinned individual, or a minority person, for ape, because why on earth would I? It was a really silly or thoughtless move in an age where people are looking for racism and anything they can use anywhere!

Roseanne Barr gave the left what they wanted and what they are always on the look out for … I’m guessing that it would be catastrophic if President Trump now went out and defended Mrs. Barr, because the President has to deal with his own accusations of racism, something that he seems to be battling daily. (Record Low Unemployment Rates for Minorities in the U.S.A.)

This means that Roseanne has been disavowed by everyone which is a pity, because her show was much-needed. The opposition won, or at least this time around. Roseanne’s show has to come back because it was important, and people loved it. The fact that the left dictates what is allowed or not has to come to and end, because they insult and behave badly yet somehow manage to portray themselves as having the moral high-ground time after time. As of now there are lots of politicians all over the Western world who live in fear over what the media might write about them and this results in them having no balls, quite frankly.

The deconstructionists will win if they are allowed to dictate the rules of what one ought to talk about and what one oughtย not to even think about.ย

Love Thy Neighbour As Thyself………

Standard

The place where I live is absolutely lovely … there is just one tiny, little thing that doesn’t quite work:ย When Your Neighbour Surveils You Without Permission.

Yes that’s right. Back to that minuscule detail again….

This year I decided that I was going to get back to my organic, vegan, vegetable growing practise; but decided to think bigger, and hopefully better. ย This year I have ambitious plans and decided to brave the elements by cleaning out the whole lot. Back in the day when my lovely Dragon was still with me I constantly had to wade through super long, horrible weeds to get to the faucet; but now I decided to annihilate everything in my way. A funny detail to note is that some of my neighbours had decided that they wanted to plant something, but rather than clearing out everything, they just took what they wanted, so as you can tell, I’ve literally surrounded their patches; in addition I’ve also created a new path to make access easy to the aforementioned faucet.

Since I was the only one who bothered to clean up everything, I decided that this is now all mine to do what I want with; but was of course very happy when my family decided to get involved with my expansionist vision. The more the merrier, and the more the more muscle power, which is sorely needed when you’ve decided to clear out other parts of the garden as well! This project has now become a major family affair. This is good news as I’m extremely keen on “prepping.” The preparedness level of people in general is horrendous. Modern people have no idea about how to survive, unless operating within a high-functioning, convenient, modern setting. Remember: we were the only people who had a working fire-place this winter! This enabled us to cook food on the open fire and keep warm when the power was down!!!

While I was engaged in the initial project of clearing out the big patch pictured, even finishing my cleaning business off by crawling on all fours to get the last annoying roots out of my way, a most unpleasant character, with no interest in the vegetable patch at all whatsoever decided to make a guest appearance and harass me, since I had the audacity to sit there and actually clear out the whole thing. I was not the only one who was treated like crap; one of the two gardeners who work at the property was threatened with getting fired since he dared to neglect his garden duties for 5 min. while speaking to me about compost…….

I do not think of it as good taste to write negatively about others or start fights, unless there is a very good reason for it. I was very angry when I published my 1st entry about one of my neighbours; since she was breaking the law by spying on not just me, but everyone else who lives here as well. In addition there were other vicious things; but the spy camera really sealed the deal for me. Even though the police was involved it took forever before the cameras were eventually taken down, in fact the police couldn’t scare her, she actually wrote an email and complained to them about their parking after they had spoken to her … eventually it was some new-comers to the property who managed to get her to remove them; yes she actually added another one after everyone had complained!

That neighbour in particular was so overly contact seeking that I couldn’t walk out of my front door without getting hijacked ย by her every time, in the beginning when I lived here. Wherever I or anyone else in the family went she appeared; and this is someone who has shouted and/or harassed anyone remotely associated with this building. Whether visitors, guests, tenants, owners, contractors, lost tourists, workers; you name it.

The neighbour who decided to pay me a visit and make me feel like crap the other day, was another colourful character who wondered if I had received “permission” to sit there and remove the weeds (that nobody else on the property have bothered about) as if though I was some kind of naughty intruder. The very unpleasant neighbour also appeared but kept herself in the background, since she is not allowed to have any contact with us; she did take the liberty to scold the gardener though, as one does, (if full of crap). A fun fact is that they both came “running” out of the house the second that they saw that we were getting garden tools out to do something in that area. It didn’t even take 10 min. before they came out in full force.

The reason as to why I bother to mention this uninteresting episode is because it illustrates how unfair certain people are in their treatment of others. How arrogant some are. How petty. How conflict seeking, and how difficult it can truly be to deal with such people and situations…

A funny thing to note is that there are others who’ve obsessed a lot over ill-treatment at the hands of the evil people who live on this property, and in such situations it is of course natural to utter things such as: “Don’t think about it” or “just ignore it.”

It is especially a sign of being new to this estate that people cannot stop talking about how the place seems like a mental-asylum … I truly have no idea why people would get that impression….*cough*cough*cough*

Yet yesterday I found myself in the same situation that so many others have found themselves in. I really struggled to let go and not talk about the pettiness and bad behaviour.

It was a reminder of how some people seem to just exist to be a pest to all of those unfortunate enough to be around them; and the worst part is that if you don’t stand your ground and speak up for yourself you’ll only lose. You’ll literally be forced into a conflict situation by petty people who have nothing better to do with their time but to make others feel miserable.ย What a waste of everyone’s time and energy. What a waste indeed.

Summer 2017.

Standard

This year I have not posted that many pictures on my blog since I haven’t been out that much. I’ve been spending an awful lot of time indoors, bedridden, due to post-infection-syndrome. I worked on my 3rd album and my classical singing whenever I had the energy and have just recently started exercising my shoulder after nearly 9 months off due to a guitar related injury. Earlier this month I was out travelling to partake in my second season of Norway’s highest rated Saturday Night TV Show “Stjernekamp,” so I’ll post pictures from my work-trip in my next blog-entry ๐Ÿ˜‰ It was lovely to finally be up and about again ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m grateful that my family has been so sweet and understanding while I’ve been ill and I’m also thankful for the wonderful messages/comments of support from my followers. It has been heartwarming to see. Here are some pictures from the summer that was ๐Ÿ™‚

Damn It’s June Already!

Standard

Yepp, here we are 6 months into the “new” year. Here are some snapshots of the month that was.

We have a neighbour that I was planning to dedicate a whole blog entry to. A neighbour that pretends to be รผber nice while going behind everyone’s back, trying to put up wedges between the various people who lives here. She literally behaves like she owns the whole property and in that spirit she just decided to use funds without permission to set up an ugly fence in a section of the garden. I suspected that it was set up to block my ย “jogging path” but the official excuse, which she refused to reveal in writing, was that she was protecting the flower beds from the geese. No wonder then that I laughed whole heartedly when I say thisย โ†“

IMG_7984IMG_7990

Yup, the fence was a total failure, even though she and her husband refuses to admit it. I even had to rescue a couple of goslings when they got stuck on the wrong side of the fence. It was very interesting dealing with panicking goslings and a furious parent, that obviously thought that I was a threat, I almost got attacked by one of the Geese, one of them even came flying after me when I jogged past them on a separate occasion, they are still cute though…If you ever deal with geese, bear in mind that they are only territorial NOT randomly aggressive. If you run past them, get too close to their goslings or try to feed them by throwing things at them, they will see you as an aggressor. Keep a fair distance and it will all be fine.

It’s all about babies here on the country side now. I even saw a newborn lamb when I was out jogging, with a mother with lots of nasty bloody things hanging out of her as she was just done giving birth.

IMG_8256IMG_8258

Have you ever seen anything more adorable? The majority of the lambs are terrified of humans, but these guys who live in a separate enclosure are as tame as you can get. Seriously. I would like one. They are aaaadooooraaaableeeee.

IMG_8295IMG_8299IMG_8304

Yeah, I’ve never seen anything like this in real life. So cute. The “kids” are so shy ๐Ÿ™‚

IMG_7689

I found this while I was jogging. At first I put it somewhere “safe” away from the path, until I realised that it was the only survivor. There was a whole bunch of broken eggs and lots of feathers spread around. So I figured that this was a “lucky” egg and took it with me home to see if I could rescue the life within.

IMG_7751

I made some new friends while walking to the post office. These guys are seriously awesome.

It’s bizarre how you can live “in the middle of nowhere” in the UK but still be so close to big towns and cities.

Last month my mother and her fiancรฉe drove to France to get some wine for their wedding. I had the responsibility to keep the house in check and decided to go into it full-on this time around. If teenage-me had seen me doing this stuff I would have been mortified. I was such a “modern feminist” when I was in high school I took ย offense, to people assuming that ” I would be cooking with my mother” or that “babysitting my siblings so much would make for great experience”, I hated anything that was stereotypical house wify-ish or what I considered to be outdated gender views. Now though, I’ve often asked myself why a woman becomes worshipped as a role model, the second she goes into a male dominated field and is a badass. Is being a badass the only kind of female role-model that is acceptable? It is an interesting thing to note that when I made my “International Women’s Day” entry last year, my list over amazing women featured women of the military and women being engaged in masculine activities, that are still ย dominated by men, even when women have a choice to pursue what they want. Lately I went to see an exhibition dedicated to a female scientist and was amazed at how small it was. It was the smallest exhibition I had ever seen and this made me wonder. Is she now considered an icon, because feminists desperately wants her to be one, or was her contribution to science worthy of an exhibit? Was it sexism that prevented her from contributing more or was it her own abilities?

Anyway, I figured out once and for all that if you want to keep a household of 6 in order and look after a kid that is home schooled, you literally have a full-time occupation .My brother was not allowed any screen time, I cooked every meal from scratch and kept the house clean and tidy. This took up all of my time for the 4-5 days I did it. You can always make short cuts, by putting kids in front of a screen, making cheap and unhealthy ready meals, living in a mess, etc. But if you want to look after kids and a household of 6 properly, it is truly a job. An ungrateful one too, because it isn’t valued in our part of the world.

There is danger and death in plenty, with people mounting the evidence of their heinous crimes, in plain sight, preferably in their living rooms…
