The Downward Spiral Of Curiosity & Honesty.

Standard

This evening I decided to re-read my 1st blog book “Thoughts” which can be purchased right here:ย My Book.

It is of interest that typos found their way into the final product even when I read through the blog entries several times, in addition to using a grammar tool. It is my experience so far that the tech we have at our disposal hasn’t caught up yet. I often see that mistakes make their way into my final published entries and I see this with articles published by mainstream major media outlets as well.

I’ve decided to let my mistakes stand though as a testimony to my own humanity and fallibility. Hopefully I’ll publish something typo-free next time around with better grammar. In my own defence: English is my 4th language! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

The reason as to why I decided to read through my book this evening was to double-check and police myself. At the end of last year I started freaking out a bit when I received a spooky comment on one of my entries regarding radical Islam in Europe. In addition to this I re-lived the sort of social-media strangeness that I first experienced back in 2015. Wondering if I had caught the attention of someone dangerous I set a number of my entries to Private, but when things calmed down I later went on to publish them as a book. After looking at them again now I don’t necessarily see any controversy, unless one chooses to be in denial over how things are playing out politically for the various Nations of Europe.

It is of interest that my 1st political entry published in early 2016 was written from a completely secularist perspective, certainly aligned with the Europe of today – if one is opposed to imported extremism that is.

Fast forward to November the 19th in the same year and I’m openly contemplating whether it was a grave mistake to destroy Christianity within our continent as it was evidently starting to dawn on me that our values are not competitive.

It becomes obvious when looking at the entries that I’m describing a decaying social construct and a governing elite mistrusted by their own people due to a widening gap between those who lead and those who follow…

When observing small acts of kindness and respect from the current leadership in the U.S.A. towards their American voters (something that is never really reported on in the mainstream media press) you see an effort in place to ensure that “the people” (regardless of how abstract the definition of “the people” is) don’t feel forgotten by those who govern!

President Donald J. Trump shaking the hand of every single Navy Graduateย at the graduation ceremony for the U.S. Naval Academy class of 2018;ย represents great leadership, and it is the lack of such acts that create distance, resentment, and eventually loathing, towards those who are in charge….

In my entries it is obvious that the gap between reality and the fiction sold by the political-correctness brigade just keeps on widening, and that the people are aware and notice, fuelling underneath the build up of total fury.

I hardly mention U.S. politics in my book at all, since this was obviously not on my radar at the time.

Seeing the blog entries now gives me the chills since what I describe is a crumbling Europe, where certain demographic groups have been planted into every single European Nation, which surely looks like a deliberate act of long-term de-stabilization.ย 

I address the symptoms of continental illness, but without rudeness, I make the distinction between the moderate and the extreme. That being said; the fixation that naturally ensues when one knows what the truth is and pursue this truth further, is not a healthy endeavour. I’m amazed I haven’t had an aneurysm yet, because heavens knows: the current predicament of Europe makes me sick!

The reason as to why people become entangled in this obsession, is because people know that their concerns are legitimate and right. They keep on going and going and going and going, not necessarily out of ill will but because they know that they are speaking the truth and that matters will only get worse, much worse, if nothing gets done.

The irony of course is that something can only be done by those who have the power to do so, the question is whether there is a willingness, and that is where the division between “the people” and those who decide kicks in, not to forget that an unwillingness to act will probably give birth to competing entities that bypass established institutions….

An incredulous political vision is being pursued in Europe today; and I hope that the emergence of bold, conservative leaders will give us a much-needed shift before a peaceful re-setting will be out of reach.

The wider the gap gets, the more troubling is our future.

 

A Cool Video From The G7.

Standard

This is a very interesting ย watch, especially when considering how the U.S.A is constantly being portrayed as the villainous hegemon. I started to doubt this narrative when I saw how much the U.S.A was struggling internally for myself, which is of course something that a lot of European critics will never see. It is interesting to note how opinionated people can be about a country they’ve never even been to … likewise it is interesting to listen to real witness accounts from people who’ve actually worked in Africa, Asia and the Middle East rather than experts who glorify cultures and situations they know nothing about….

I’m extremely happy to see that there is a real Renaissance effort in place because the U.S.A. sorely needs it. Hopefully it will inspire Europe to follow suit. One can hope. I saw a tweet yesterday from a fellow show-biz character who said that Norway needs a trip to the garage, my reply was that the whole west needs it asap. I don’t see isolated issues, I see a continental issue over here and an overall degenerate culture-war that is equally damaging for the U.S.A. as it is for countries and nations over here.

Last year when I decided to actually cast my vote for the first time, out of desperation quite frankly due to how things are changing in Europe, I decided to read a little and figure out what I was casting my vote for. It opened my eyes a bit to the complexity and magnitude of what needs to be addressed when engaged in National management… Migration is quite frankly just one piece in a giant tapestry of issues, but it is the issue that is the most visible to the general population due to exposure and due to brands, magazines and entertainment companies moving together in a synchronised fashion to popularise new values and a new Europe. If you hate and loathe the change, you’ll be given new reasons to be upset every single day. It makes me happy to see that the U.S.A. at least are getting back on their feet, now I’m wondering when Hollywood will follow suit and create patriotic content that can lift the American spirit rather than working against the re-construction. (A cool article to check out).

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

Having A Raison D’รชtre & An End Game – The Impression One Can Get.

Standard

When reading about the Iraq war last year I was stunned to see the willingness to sacrifice the integrity of Europe on the altar of momentary territorial access needed in order to get into Iraq.

โ€œPlan Of Attackโ€ by Bob Woodward.

โ€œDecision Pointsโ€ by George W. Bush.

I was further mystified by the fact that 4-star Army General (ret.)ย Colin Powell came across as the one lone voice of reason, since he tried to raise awareness of tribalism and ethnic diversity in the targeted area.

The reading certainly gave me the impression that humans are simply being seen as replaceable cogs in the machinery by the establishment.

Culture and ethnicity simply doesn’t matter, it is all about momentary victory, without any overarching solid narrative selling a clearly defined End Game, that will be reached by many separate actions all serving the same underlying objective.

This is a startling realisation.

When reading “The Art Of War” I was surprised about what sort of advice it contained. Prolonged warfare with no end in sight is depicted as one of the worst projects that a Nation can ever engage in. A group that engages in warfare also have to ensure that they have access to an efficient supply line, taking advantage of whatever resources the group can get their hands on as they expand into a territory. A war effort should be swift and precise, without too much meddling from sovereigns located far away. The people who are on the ground need to be able to do what is necessary to reach their goal in a completely mobilised way, to the extent that this is possible.

All of this certainly made me question the sort of warfare that people my age have grown accustomed to. All of our Nations’ war efforts seem concentrated in “alien territories,” fighting and training “aliens” that might turn on the West later, and all of our Nations’ major war efforts seemingly drag out for ever…

No proper end game that logically makes sense is ever presented to the public and when getting an insight into the world of those who run these things, it doesn’t really seem like these characters know what the deal is either (unless a battle ground is simply needed in order to train soldiers and test new equipment).

Warriors & Citizens โ€“ American Views of Our Military edited by Kori Schake & Jim Mattis.

A parallel can be drawn to hacker activists, who don’t seem too concerned with allies. They’ll attack an enemy of the West one day only to target Western political and military structures the next, potentially jeopardising the integrity and safety of a Nation State or its military operations.

When reading about community organisers you see this pattern of behaviour once again. ย A lot of left-wing activism simply cancels itself out, since the only common denominator seems to be emotionalism. Due to this you’ll get contradicting agitation and advocacy that will leave someone like myself slightly confused, as there is no End Game in sight anywhere.

If you look at Islamic agitation in Europe it is very easy to understand what their End Game and overarching goal is. They engage in demographic expansionism into Europe, which gradually gives them a political advantage. Wealthy Muslim power-players buy themselves into Western Corporations which gives them cultural influence and leverage. Street-level Muslims carve out their own territories and then defend these. Mosques are erected further cementing a claim to a specific territory boosting confidence, while a romanticized fantasy of Islamic Imperialism, appealing to people’s sense of identity and innate penchant for ancestry-worship, is promoted. Of course, as always, not all. But you don’t need every member of a specific group to behave in this particular fashion for it to have its desired effect. My impression of European Islamification is that there is a long-term vision, coupled with a willingness to commit to certain behaviours, in order to eventually reach a clearly defined outcome: Nation States that become compatible in their policies and in their cultures with the Muslim faith, preferably paving the way for a new “Golden-Age.” Of course it is of importance to point out the ethnic and racial diversity within Islam, and that there are numerous conflicting denominations within the faith as well.ย As an example: we can now clearly observe, imported tribal disagreements and feuds, in Europe, in addition to all of our own inter-ethnic issues that we had from before….

Inter-ethnic dissonance is very prevalent in Africa;ย which is generally referred to as the most diverse continent on the surface of the earth.

So what can be said of the West? What is our End Game? What can be observed and what conclusions can be drawn?ย 

What would make sense, instinctively, ย would be to have common ancestry as the glue holding Europe together. Race has become way more inclusive than what it used to be, since we now largely see Race as something observable, while ethnic groups give us what has become our European Nation States, with its specific cultures and characteristics. ย Back in the day these used to be chopped up into various tribes that probably displayed a lot of similar traits to one another, hence our generalisation regarding population groups contained within the boundaries of the modern Nation State: an extended family sharing common ancestry and a similar distribution of genetic traits on average.

It would make sense if our Nation States in Europe concerned themselves with the protection of our shared and individual cultural heritage, doing everything to ensure the survival and majority status of white children (and mixed whites) in the only territory that actually belongs a 100% to whites, protecting our continent’s borders and integrity.

A strong unified Europe and more broadly speaking, a strong unified West with the more multi-racial configurations found within territories conquered by whites, would in theory make sense.

Is this an End Game for what is collectively known as The West though? No.

This would be a racist objective. It would insinuate that Ethnic-Europeans have a natural claim to a specific territory and that conquest is a legitimate way to establish a Nation, which is what a white presence in all other territories other than Europe is a result of. (To my knowledge … It certainly looks that way when observing strange geographic settlements by Whites and the presence of dark-skinned indigenous groups).

The prevalent mythos championed in the West is this:

  1. that all other groups are minorities, even if Europe looks very small when compared to other continents, and we are outnumbered globally speaking.
  2. That the magic soil theory is truth, meaning that you’ll automatically become ย Swedish by simply breathing the air in Sweden.
  3. That all human beings are born equal due to a blank slate, and that genetics simply don’t exist.
  4. That talking about genetics and genuine diversity is dangerous because that will instantly turn you into Hitler and result in a new Holocaust.
  5. That it makes sense to celebrate white ethnic groups becoming minorities, after years of civil-rights battles in the U.S.A. to ensure equal opportunity regardless of skin colour, and after years of Whites trying to do good towards previously marginalised and abused non-white minority groups within their domains. Not to forget: the constant focus on the challenges faced by so-called (and genuine) minorities within traditionally White-majority constructs. None of this paints minority-status in an appealing light … yet we should do everything in our power to lay the groundwork for our own marginalisation…. which is particularly interesting when reading about the merciless brutality in other parts of the world perpetrated by non-white majorities…
  6. That previous white expansionism will just be forgotten, since Whites have decided to “play nice,” which means that we no longer have any enemies and don’t really need any borders….
  7. That only white ethnic groups can be guilty of racism and imperialistic activity.
  8. That white ethnic groups are not under any circumstance “indigenous” and that there will at no point be any need to give any white demographic the status of “protected group.”
  9. That race and/or ethnicity is only real and only counts if/when dealing with “indigenous people,” who can under no circumstance be white. These “indigenous” groups are also the only ones entitled to certain territories that have to be protected in order to ensure their survival.
  10. That charity is only needed in the 3rd world as it is probably your own fault if you are poor and hungry in the superior, egalitarian, socialist inspired constructs that make up the Western World.
  11. That you have to import workers from Africa and The Middle East, rather than employing individuals from territories closer to your own, or within your own continent.
  12. That mixing on a massive scale is always peaceful and not the result of violent demographic change or militant conquest.
  13. That re-writing history and engaging in gas-lighting on a National and/or Continental level is perfectly alright in order to salvage vanity projects initiated by international organisations, that might look good on paper and in theory; until inserting the human factor into the equation actually implementing the idea.

Ok. So this doesn’t look too promising. Then what about Christianity? This is multi-racial, multiethnic and global. It is way more inclusive and has been used as a unifying factor in Europe before…

The West has continuously acted as an enemy to Christian groups in the Middle East, facilitating genocidal persecution of genuine Christian minority tribes. Western governments not only promote the build-down of Christianity within Europe and all other territories under White influence, they actively side with Nations and regimes known for violent Christian persecution.

What about human-rights, enlightenment ideas, world peace and the “human race”?

Western governments have repeatedly sided with regimes guilty of outrageous human rights abuses, making themselves guilty of gross hypocrisy since human rights and the protection of humanity as a whole has become the main narrative and general raison d’รชtre of Western groups.

Portraying oneself as a defender of the human race also becomes tricky as you cannot possible go out there and claim that population group A needs more protection and privileges than population group B as this would be racist and undermine universal rights. And how on earth can you even say population group A and B when race/ethnicity isn’t even real? You cannot say that religious group A is more guilty of persecution than religious group B, because why would religious group B be more righteous or in need of more protection than the other? Are you a bigot or what?

Who are you to say that Terrorists don’t have rights or don’t have a point, when you claim to be a defender of all of humanity? And how on earth do you even define a “War on Terror” or “Terrorists”? Any person or group could fall into this category when nothing is specified.

These kind of points can be spinned indefinitely putting The West in a situation where none of its actions can be seen as righteous and/or legitimate.

It opens up the door for a potential legal, moral and PR nightmare where The West and its natural inhabitants never win.

It also puts Western Nation states in a situation where an enemy cannot be clearly defined, at least not in public, due to important exotic alliances and potential diplomatic disasters. By relying on exotic alliances for abstract military operations, the West paints ย itself into a corner, where they cannot kick out subversive elements within their own nations if these stem from their good “friends and allies.”

The West is forced into a position where it cannot really look after the interests of its own inhabitants, nor enforce the heritage and integrity of itself.

Not to forget that The West is put into an incredibly awkward situation when Western leaders cannot clearly formulate anything, if interested in maintaining good international relationships.

This results in cringe worthy narratives that leaves all of those who don’t just parrot our “modern shared values” confused and puzzled. What are we all about really? Does anyone know?

What about Capitalism then? A support for this must surely be a constant factor from The Americans at least?ย 

No. Think again. The U.S.A. is willing to tolerate oppressive communist regimes that in the long run pose a threat to the American experiment and their global influence, as long as the U.S.A. can gain from such an alliance in the short run.

So what is The End Game of The West?ย 

Strangely and worryingly enough there doesn’t seem to be one……(but I might be very wrong, after all, who knows what goes on behind the scenes…).

At best it can be argued that there are forces within The West championing stability trough whatever means by expanding the police state and surveillance of their own citizens. This though is worked against by leaders who don’t want to acknowledge the effects of demographic change. In addition it facilitates the very form of governance that Western Nations are outspokenly against, not to forget that the identity destruction currently happening in The Western world work against any conservation efforts intended to protect our cultural and ethnic inheritance, while simultaneously compromising stability and security; in short, all of it compromises the survival of those people who occupy the territories that we collectively refer to as The West.

 

“Trump – The Art Of The Deal” by Donald J.Trump & Tony Schwartz.

Standard

If there is one thing I never really read it is business books, in fact this is the 1st one I’ve ever completed.

The work was recommended to me by my mother who studied economics and is a life-long Trump fan. She had previously read “The Art Of The Deal” many years ago ( it was published in 1987) and bought it again after Trump’s election victory over in the U.S.A.

The work is very easy to read, but not in a dumb or condescending fashion. If you have a curious mind it will keep you occupied into the early morning hours. I finished the book in less than a day. Those who are searching for bigotry will find themselves disappointed as Trump mentions how he likes to hire women since they are so efficient and competent (to paraphrase), among other myth-busting statements. It is also highlighted that part of Trump Tower’s success is that they did not engage in “discrimination” towards potential buyers. Getting hold of an apartment in New York is described as being rather difficult, since you as a person have to be assessed before you’re allowed into “the club.”

The work is off to a strong, but overwhelmingly energetic start, following a typical work-week in Trump’s busy business life. His network is nothing short of impressive and is the first thing that stands out. He lifts up the phone and seem capable of reaching any decision maker in any multi million/billion dollar industry whenever he likes.

What he is depicted as doing comes across as very complex for sure, as he seems to be everywhere and involved with everything at any give time. It certainly sounds like a more cerebral activity than just repeating and focusing on one activity over and over, which is what artists and athletes do.

He displays great “cunning” in his autobiography which would have scored him lots of points with the Vikings or the Greeks. It is nothing short of staggering what one person can accomplish during a lifetime. Donald Trump’s legacy will ring out through the ages I’m sure, after first establishing a business empire, leaving many buildings after himself (in his name), even becoming president of the U.S.A. Movies will be made in due time, probably statues as well.

When talking about his childhood he describes a privileged background in comparison to most. He was groomed for the property business working along his father. It is also mentioned that his grandfather came from Sweden, which instantly made me wonder what Trump’s impression would be if he went over there and saw “Swedish conditions” for himself. A funny story is shared of how Trump built skyscrapers with Lego as a child.

It is of great interest that Trump the adult is depicted as brushing shoulders with the same sort of people who have now all of a sudden thrown him under the bus. My guess is that everybody wanted his money back then and to pose next to a successful, glamorous developer. Trump used to be pop (and still is with his supporters and fans), but was all of a sudden somewhat disowned by an entertainment industry and a media establishment now depicting him as retarded and evil. I’ve previously credited this to him simply being politically conservative.

Questioning the mental capacity of someone who’ve built a business empire, branding him as a “buffoon-reality-show-President,” is nothing short of hilarious. You cannot be an idiot and become successful in the line of work where Trump has made his name. His critics must see him as a threat (he criticises corruption ย within the political establishment in New York in his book), he gets back at his haters (before Twitter-Trump, there was letter-writing-Trump), he was able to get back on his feet after bankruptcy, he has always (by judging from this book) called a spade a spade, he comes across as a real-life monopoly player with an unblemished background after numerous bureaucratic assessments and in addition he is the definition of a capitalist, and I guess that is the issue more than anything else.ย 

More worryingly for his enemies: he is described as engaging in economic “sieges,” certainly adding a militaristic flair to the Trump phenomenon. The business environment is obviously described as competitive and filled with jealousy, so you have that element as well. Maybe there are other businessmen out there who wish they had run for office themselves … there are probably many money-makers out there who wish they were Trump……

In the book he constantly talks about “the market;” it is because of his ability to read “the market” and see “the market,” that he wins. This of course clashes with people from proper old-money, or those who are more elitist in their taste and feel that the “masses” are dull, stupid, uninteresting, you name it. Donald J.Trump is all about understanding what and how to sell. That seldom goes along with arrogance or an outright refusal to “sell out.” He shares his admiration for other people who also cater to whatever “market” that is relevant for the line of work that they are in.

He describes how an artist friend of his makes lots of money by simply pouring paint over a canvass, making a mess, selling it as modern art; ย which is a con-trick I’ve come across myself when I was introduced to an Asian female painter with three studios around the world who made her money by pouring paint unto canvasses, and folding and unfolding said canvasses. This was how she made her money, with eager buyers psychoanalyzing the emotional meaning behind her work…..

This “market” obsession is what a lot of “true” (or much better written: TRVE) artists and musicians turn away from in total disgust. If you choose to do proper classical crossover for example, there will be an understanding that this doesn’t hang as high as catering to the niche, elitist, market of “proper classical music.” Crossover acts sell more records, but that doesn’t really matter….

I also posses a certain snobbish flair when it comes to food and art (which I attribute to being European), but this is something that is only good in certain doses. I have myself turned down certain TV offers in the past, because I felt that appearing on such shows would hurt my brand; like it would taint me somehow. Such behaviour cannot be a constant factor though as you’ll never crossover into the mainstream in any sort of way, which I’ve thankfully done by being visible on some of the most mainstream TV-shows in my country of origin, yet even when I said yes to these things, I knew that there was a certain sense of “selling-out,” yet the opportunities seemed too fun and too good to turn down, and I was very right about that. I love doing TV.

I do know that great art a lot of times isn’t supported by “the market” but need “patronage” in order to survive. History proves this to be the case. People who really have “the attitude” though would scoff at “circus-entertainment,” or anything catering to the so-called “masses” such as a U.S. President eating burgers from McDonald’s. Capitalists such as Trump win financially because they seemingly don’t care about the snobs; offering apartments for sale in New York without discrimination, is a very good example, making a reality-show is another not to forget; bothering about the ordeals of so-called “commoners” like Annabel Hill; which paints the picture of a capitalist with a heart. And what can possibly beat strong leadership combined with compassion?

Even the story of Trump trying to kick out tenants who were paying ridiculously low rent as a result of “rent-control,” is an interesting case study, as these individuals who got a bargain and took advantage of the “system,” felt that they were being harassed when Trump’s people tried to run the building in accordance with the low rent they collected. This was seen as an act of harassment by the tenants. To quote Trump:

“If there’s one thing I’ve learned about the rich, it’s that they have a very low threshold for even the mildest discomfort.”

“It happens to be very easy to vacate a building if, like so many landlords, you don’t mind being a bad guy. When these landlords buy buildings they intend to vacate, they use corporate names that are difficult to trace. Then they hire thugs to come in with sledgehammers and smash up the boiler, rip out the stairways, and create floods by cutting holes in pipes. They import truckloads of junkies, prostitutes, and thieves and move them into vacant apartments to terrorize holdout tenants. That’s what I call harassment.” (This clearly illustrates “people used as weapons.” Which ย  ย  ย can be compared to how migration is handled by some).

The scenario described illustrates once again how a privileged few, convinced other people not as fortunate as themselves, to gang up together to fight a common enemy whose defeat ultimately would have profited the tenants who had the biggest flats the most. Trump’s dislike of wealthy people taking advantage of rent-controlled apartments can also be a reason as to why some people strongly dislike the current President, since people aren’t too keen on separating with their perks. Many celebrities taking advantage of “rent-control” are mentioned within the book….

Trump ends up fantasizing about offering the homeless his vacant apartments in said condominium, so that snobbish New Yorkers can share their living space with the less-fortunate. He backs down from this idea after his lawyers warn that it will become almost impossible to remove rough sleepers to prepare the building for demolition if he first initiates such an endeavour.

I’m suspecting that I’ve hit the nail somewhat on its head when it comes to why show-biz people have turned their backs so violently on the current U.S.President. Messy, absent-minded, artsy types seem to have an innate disgust towards suit-wearing money-makers like the ones Trump describes in his book. I wonder if the mentality goes both ways as the world described by someone like Donald J. Trump starkly contrasts any music industry related book. There is a personality contrast (on average) I’m suspecting, which is probably why artists have a tendency of being outspokenly anti-corporate, even if benefitting from major corporations and patronage from such people. This “night and day” contrast with deadline averse, unorganised artists on one side, and a no bullshit, no time to waste, mentality on the opposite spectrum, might illustrate my point.ย Artists would ironically enough be able to relate to business guys struggling to get financing for unique and new ideas, but I guess there is no interest in finding common ground if you as an artist hate and fight “the system,” while business people (might) think of artists as annoying, ungrateful, weirdos, with a strange dress-sense.

There are a great number of artists out there who are openly communist and would cringe at the idea of having their music placed in an ad, for example. Rather than seeing this as a golden opportunity, there would be many who would be opposed to such a thing. Licensing music for use in commercials should be the dream of any musician; I personally do not understand the official anti-business stance of a lot of show-biz characters since you are starting a business anyway the moment that you are selling a service or a product. You can might as well think big and aim high.

The greatest comedy in entertainment is when radical artists are in the receiving end of proper corporate backing and feel clever since they feel like they are fighting the machine from within, using capitalist tools. The capitalists also feel clever since they are making a profit off approved opposition and dissent, getting rich off anti-establishment punks, who actually enrich the very institutions that they criticise… This sort of oddity can to a certain degree be witnessed by anti-gun celebrities who’ve made their names by being gun-wielding action heroes, or #MeToo male feminists in show-biz unmasked as sexual predators.ย A box that Donald J. Trump’s critics have tried their best to place him in. The second that “locker-room” talk from the current President could be used as a tool to remove him from the 2016 election, his critics edited out what they needed and jumped at the opportunity to use it, only to see him win in the end anyway. It is particularly telling that the ace up their sleeve now come in the form of a certain lame storm that passed many, many, years ago.

There is a Russia-link funny enough on pages. 26-27 and on page 364 … This book however was published in 1987 and I’m guessing that Trump travelling to the Soviet Union to scout for potential prospects with his first wife doesn’t count… I’m willing to bet that Trump’s critics haven’t bothered to read his book. They should. Maybe they’ll turn around.

When you read “The Art Of The Deal” you get an insight into those who run the world; in other words: those who know how to handle money, make good business deals and don’t want to waste time on bullshit. Trump even meets with a Cardinal.

Politics and the world of real estate are closely linked and certainly puts into question the myth of property-rights in the Western world. I’ve previously mentioned in my entry: “An Insight Into The State of A European Nation โ€“ Election in Norway/Valg i Norge 2017.,” how easily rights gets compromised when red-tape and bureaucracy infringes on what a person can do with his/her property. It contradicts freedom and liberty to have politicians interfere with how or what ย you build on a piece of land that you’ve purchased, unless there is a concern for buildings of a historical value. If we are to have rights in the Western world, it would be good if these could be respected, if not they are merely a mirage….

Politicians are depicted as fishy weather-wanes in Trump’s book, obsessed with their own vanity, living in fear over any bad publicity since this can cost them votes. They are depicted as largely incompetent and untrustworthy.

I particularly enjoyed reading about “value engineering” and “quality control.” I’ve had a ridiculous amount of different addresses in my short life and know how sneaky landlords can be. They paint over blemishes and pretend like nothing, which is why it is crucial to hire a nosy “inspector” if you ever intended to rent, and especially buy something. More often than not you’ll find “fire traps” and/or “hazardous materials.” I would recommend people to smell the walls of their flats and/or houses, in order to detect any mould that has been painted over or any potential rot. It might make you look crazy, but at least you’ll know if someone is trying to be clever…

My favourite chapter was the one about the rebuilding of the Wollman Ice Rink in Central Park.

After reading Donald J. Trump’s book I’m sure that he is thrilled over bureaucrats and feet-dragging within the political establishment that he now finds himself in…

A future President and world-leader can be seen when Trump says: “…I felt there was a bigger issue at stake. I’ve come to believe Ed Koch is so incompetent and destructive to New York that someone has to stand up and say so, publicly.

Nowhere can this President-in-the-making be sensed clearer than in the “What’s Next” section of the work: “ But what I admire most are people who put themselves directly on the line. I’ve never been terribly interested in why people give, because their motivation is rarely what it seems to be, and it’s almost never pure altruism. To me, what matters is the doing, and giving time is far more valuable than giving money. In my life, there are two things I’ve found I’m very good at: overcoming obstacles and motivating good people to do their best work. One of the challenges ahead is how to use those skills as successfully in the service of others as I’ve done, up to now, on my own behalf.

Conclusion: Donald J. Trump comes across as a very likeable guy, sharp, not someone you could easily fool, interested in the whereabouts of real people and what actually happens in the real-world. He comes across as someone critical of a political establishment only interested in enriching itself, and at odds with New York snobbery. He comes across as a successful “man-of-the-people,” in love with everything HUGE and beautiful. Those looking for anything Hitleresque will find themselves disappointed. Read this book whether you like President Trump or not.

4 Things I really like and agree with from “The Art Of The Deal”

  1. It doesn’t matter if you own something a 100% if what you own is worthless.
  2. It doesn’t matter if you have a stellar product if no one ever hears about it.
  3. There are lots of people out there with unfulfilled potential because they were never put in a setting where they could properly bloom.
  4. ย Leading a meritocratic operation will get out the best in people.

Selected Quotes from “The Art Of The Deal”

” … politicians don’t care too much about what things cost. It’s not their money.”

“You can’t ย be imaginative or entrepreneurial if you’ve got too much structure.”

“… if you’re right, you’ve got to take a stand, or people will walk all over you.”

“The way I see it, critics get to say what they want to about my work, so why shouldn’t I be able to say what I want about theirs?” – after writing a letter to a critic who ” …was knocking a design he hadn’t even looked at yet.”

“That experience taught me a few things. One is to listen to your gut, no matter how good something sounds on paper. The second is that you’re generally better off sticking with what you know. And the third is that sometimes your best investments are the ones you don’t make.”

“The worst things you can possibly do in a deal is seem desperate to make it.”

“It pays to trust your instincts.”

“The state official who cross-examined Hefner said afterward that several commissioners hadn’t liked Hefner’s demeanour and style on the witness stand.” On why some get licenses from the bureaucracy and why some don’t.

“There is nothing to compare with family if they happen to be competent, because you can trust family in a way you can never trust anyone else.”

“To this day not many people or companies are willing to go through the nightmare of licensing in New Jersey, which gives Nevada a big advantage in attracting new investors.”

Trump on the business of Sport: ” Porter bluntly outlined a multipart plan for declaring total war on our league, by employing numerous anti-competitive strategies. His two-and-a-half-hour presentation was divided into sections such as “Offensive Strategies,” “Guerrilla Warfare,” and “The Art of War – China 500 B.C.”

Trump on politicians: ” It’s fortunate for those city officials that they chose to go into city government rather than business. The deal they were suggesting was far worse for the city than the one I’d originally offered. I wasn’t about to fight them at my ย own expense.”

“…raise the possibility of bad press, even in an obscure publication, and most politicians will jump.”

“It irritates me that critics, who’ve neither designed nor built anything themselves, are given carte blanche to express their views in the pages of major publications, whereas the targets of their criticism are almost never offered space to respond.”

Trump on celebrity buyers of his apartments: ” Obviously, we were a natural choice for people connected with show business, in the sense that we’d created something very glamorous.”

“The truth is that we never hired anyone to do public relations, and every star who bought an apartment – Johnny Carson, Steven Spielberg, Paul Anka, Liberace – and many others – came to us.”

US President Trump’s Haters, Vol.II – The Lousiest Puppet Show.

Standard

I haven’t really written much about the never-ending political drama unfolding on both sides of the Atlantic lately, but I’ve certainly had my thoughts…

I’m not sure how anyone can justify ย the amount of exposure rewarded to a certain “storm-of-a-non-weather nature,” I’m certainly asking myself why on earth I even know about such a thing … if we lived in the age of my great-grandparents then maybe I could have understood the desperate attempt at creating some sort of scandal, but it is all a play to the gallery, not that I’m sure who’s watching or who cares.

While a certain administration is probably celebrating the return of three liberated hostages, the pacification of an Asian nuisance with the worst hairdo in the pantheon of villains, jobs brought back thanks to a magic wand, and a myriad of other accomplishments; there are other forces desperately trying their best to “isolate” the US President or to make him miserable by breaking up his family and undermining whatever cohesion that is necessary for his administration to work.

The cherry on top of the pie is how people who openly support said President, (or other politicians like him over here in Europe), will get heckled/trolled online and/or in the media, so as to discourage other people from supporting their views, attempting to create an illusion of ideological dominance, that is nothing but false; in addition to making the target feel alienated and hated by everyone, which is also false.

It’s a witch hunt and a lame one indeed.

Meanwhile on the other side of the pond … it is said that the leaders of our continent are saddened by Trump pulling out of the Iran deal and want to do their best to keep the initiative alive. The USA is letting everyone know who is boss (if you think about the Tweets, America visibly going its own way, etc;) and that the glory days of European leverage is long gone, unless something drastic happens on this side of the Atlantic. An important thing to keep in mind if European Nations want trade deals where we aren’t sold poisonous chicken and other dubious foodstuffs. We are diseased enough as it is already….

When I reviewed โ€œWhere To Invade Nextโ€ by Michael Moore., I mentioned that one of the reasons as to why we’ve been allowed to spend a lot on Utopian projects in Europe is because our Nation States have relied on the American Empire’s Military to have Europe’s back. Maybe our leadership will wake up and realise that such priorities are reckless. We have enemies within and without and our culture needs to change in order to face new challenges. The Nations of Europe cannot expect victory without a serious boost in morale internally, and for this to happen there has to be a change in narrative, so that people know that they are not being lied to as they open up their front door and step out to face the new reality of the New-Europe; a derelict post-modern construct erected upon maggot infested delusional ideas, in desperate need of a reset back to the old, if our part of the world is to continue. It is a great enough challenge to cope with inter-ethnic diversity for any continent.

The U.S.A. and the various nations of Europe both West & East have to stand together, including Australia, Russia and Canada. This is more important than all other exotic alliances. Just take a look at what’s happening in South Africa. There have been many white people who’ve been chased out of Africa without anything. Where do we go if we end up being chased out of Europe as well?

I struggle to see why anyone in the U.S.A. would champion excessive liberalism if you contemplate how an Anglo-Saxon construct in a completely alien territory came to be in the first place. If your ancestors are successful conquerors, it doesn’t resemble anything that you would facilitate a similar victory for other groups on the land that you’ve inherited. Maybe American youths need to learn a bit more about their own history. Then they would understand the importance of a wall, secure borders and demographics. Not to forget that Americans did not “invent” slavery.

The demographic challenges facing the U.S.A. are monumental. They should have focused on bridging the gap between Afro-Americans, Euro-Americans and Native Americans before opening up the U.S.A. to even more different tribes. The issue with America the way I see it, is that they didn’t properly sort out their racial tensions before they decided to further complicate the definition of their identity and the possibility for cohesion. It has left the U.S.A. in an incredible sensitive and complex situation, where one can only hope that ideology (which would have to be on the conservative spectrum) will be the glue that keeps the construct together.

It is important to stress that the U.S.A. and Europe are two very different animals….

When it comes to Europe it baffles me that people have chosen to forget how our geographical location made us naturally vulnerable, and forced our ancestors to fight off ย expansionism, especially Muslim expansionism ย … Islam was pushed out from wherever it had gained ground in the borderlands of Europe, and it took years…… Why do we have all of these fine fortresses and castles of ours? Can someone please remind me? And if our Nation States vowed “Never Again” after WW2, then why lay the groundwork for one hell of a mess?

If one was to compile a potential enemy list of groups who could possibly want Europe destroyed we would probably run out of paper. That is an important thing to keep in mind. The notion that you can only be a nice European if you support the destruction of the continent while championing strong Nations and values in other parts of the world, doesn’t resemble anything, except death.

If you want to live in Africa or the Middle East then I suggest that you move there. I’m very happy with living in the Western World, thank you very much.
