Having A Raison D’รชtre & An End Game.

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).

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……

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.

A Crash Course In Politics. (What It Is And What It Is 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.”

This is a very good interview with The White House Chief of Staffย (ret.) Marine Gen. John F. Kelly

I also came across this article yesterday:ย Trump’s Catholic Warriors.ย Really cool.

A bonus article from theย National Catholic Registerย about the Met Gala. Very well written.

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 know the importance of a wall, secure borders and demographics. Not to forget that Americans did not “invent” slavery. There should be no need to school Europeans on these things, after all, haven’t we had an ongoing problem with a certain expansionist cult for centuries? A certain cult that was pushed out from wherever it had gained ground ? 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?

How Will The Future Pan Out?

What you worry about truly depends on what you are part of and/or what you do for a living. This is something I’ve been thinking about a lot lately after watching some videos with Elon Musk. He seems rather fixated on an A.I. takeover.

As a tech-illiterate individual this is an interesting worry to hear about, since mine of course differs. I worry about a very ethnomasochistic pop-culture + incompatible parallel societies within Europe (or The West) – resulting in our Nations descending into tribalism and internal national division (rather than having high-trust, civic-minded Nations) – potentially resulting in localised civil-war-ish (or full-blown) tensions/conflicts all around our continent. What bugs me to no end is that we might even get more division between Native European Ethnic groups, as the rise in Nationalism does not necessarily equal a Eurocentric focus. I think this is a shame, not because I support the EU in its current configuration, but because I love the idea of strong sovereign European Nations standing side by side through trade agreements and/or a military alliance. This differs from a Europe where Nations are turned into provinces governed from Brussels, not to forget that we are currently facing a continental threat and a continental problem, due to self-destructive initiatives. The idea of European groups standing together though, celebrating our awesome heritage, is kind of awesome in my opinion. So it will suck if the current “cultural enrichment” fiasco results in complete and total fragmentation, in addition to total, unhinged, racism. Being opposed to replacement migration is one thing, hating on everything and anyone is quite another. If this nightmare becomes a reality then I’ll say that I feel lucky that I grew up in Europe when I did. This worry of mine is not a worry that is properly formulated by government figures though, who are obsessed with conventional warfare and state actors, such as China and/or Russia.

The environmentalists on the other hand see a climate induced apocalypse, and see this as the greatest threat to the planet and all of mankind; whereas establishment celebrities are on a crusade against the Trump administration and the so-called “straight-white-male-patriarchy,” with conservatives jumping off the Trump-train if they disagree with one action by the current U.S. President. You will not get everything on your wish-list fulfilled when you cast your vote for a political candidate, if that was the case you would have to have a King; but you wouldn’t be voting for a King now would you, if the top position in the hierarchy was determined by birth-right! On the other hand there are more radical protesters and movements who denounce the political/governmental infrastructures completely and totally, since they seem to believe that a total “system-reset” is necessary. Out with the old and in with the new.

Not to forget all of the various political denominations within and outside governing bodies pulling in all sorts of different directions without necessarily being “revolutionary,” in addition to religious groups, ethnic groups, private interest groups and whatnot.

It can be tricky to know for sure which worries are the most imminent or legitimate ones. One day I published this entry, for example:ย The Death Of Privacy & Humanity., only to come across this horrid article some days later, which certainly made me wonder about my previous statements. The number looks obscene. Is this news story really true? :/

Preview of an important article, linked to further down in my entry:

“Overall, the researchers found that about 76 percent of the effect of ethnicity on DNA methylation could be accounted for by controlling for genetic ancestry”

“But the new data showing that a large fraction of epigenetic signatures of ethnicity reflect something other than ancestry suggests that abandoning the idea of race and ethnicity altogether could sacrifice a lot of valuable information about the drivers of differences in health and disease between different communities.

Like a standard family history, ethnicity is association with disease for both genetic and environmental reasons,” Zaitlen said. “If your dad or mom had a heart attack, that tells doctors a lot about your risk for a heart attack. Part of that is genetic, but part of it is that your lifestyle is influenced heavily by your parents’ lifestyle. Your ethnic group is like a much bigger family — it’s partly a matter of genetics, but it also reflects the environment of your broader community.”

Denmark’s integration and immigration minister declares that “we’ve lost to Islam,” due to the violence that always ensues whenever the religion is criticised or made fun of. She points out how making a theatre play mocking “the Mormons” can happen without violent protests and agitation, while few dare to print the Mohammad cartoons in Europe today. This obviously results in Islam getting special treatment in the West, not because we respect it or see it as true, but due to the violence perpetrated by its most feverish practitioners. This happens in our part of the world, where we constantly praise the importance of “freedom of speech,” and our liberal values … Our continent also has a history of standing up to Islamic expansionism, so the current situation can at best be described as remarkable. Political, expansionist Islam, and Holy Islamic Warriors are not supposed to be our problem.

Social Media is addictive and canย ruin your kids.ย Former Apple, Google and Facebook employees are sounding the alarm, stating that apps are designed “to get people hooked,” to paraphrase.

I’ve previously expressed my concern regardingย micro plastics, and I’m doing what I can to help where I live. I’ve come across some new information about the topic, some good news and some really bad.

What’s uplifting to know is that there is an initiative in the works to clean up the oceans, thanks to an invention by a young-punk originally from Croatia, but with Dutch citizenship, who has taken matters into his own hands startingย this company.ย Funny enough I noticed yesterday that some of my online contacts have already been sharing material about “The Ocean Cleanup” so I guess I’m late in hearing about this. Nevertheless this is precisely the sort of “individualism” and “innovation” our societies need, not only does it inspire hope, it also brings people together to solve one of the greatest threats we stand face to face with in our age. On their site they are looking for people to join their team and to contribute, check them out or share their posts! This is cool stuff!

On the other hand; it is equally important to spread the news that plastics/emballage is even more dangerous than a lot of us have probably known. The chemicals contained within our packaging leaks into our food! The health consequences are astonishing and contribute to the “fertility” problem we are currently facing among males in Europe, the side effects are equally alarming for women. Plastic bottles, tin cans, receipts from the store, it is everywhere…If you are concerned about what you put on your skin as well, then check out this entry of mine: “Skin Care. Red Flag Alert.

Quote from original article:

“Children and pregnant women are particularly susceptible to damage from ingesting the BPA chemical because they have vast amounts of growth and developmental hormones coursing through their bodies.

Worryingly, researchers have made strong associations between exposure to BPA when we are young and changes in behaviour, including disrupted brain development in children, along with increased probability of childhood asthma.

That said, the impact of early exposure to hormone-disrupting chemicals like BPA may not become apparent until much later in life. It can even affect future generations because it can have a damaging effect on female reproduction, and has the potential to affect male reproductive systems. A large number of scientific studies have associated BPA with numerous health problems including early puberty, obesity, infertility, the inhibition of insulin, hyperactivity and learning disabilities. It has also been connected to a possible increased risk of breast and prostate cancer, heart disease and type 2 diabetes.

Normally, if we were aware something could pose such a threat to our health, we would go to great lengths to avoid it. But BPA is so ubiquitous that thatโ€™s virtually impossible.

Researchers surmise that people all over the world of all ages are likely to have a measurable amount of BPA in their blood, urine or body tissue. Several government studies have detected BPA in large portions of the population, including 93 per cent of the US population aged six and older, and 99 per cent of the population in Germany aged 3-14. This new study into the high number of teenagers with BPA in their digestive system serves only to underscore that concern.”

An astonishing admission published by a mainstream media outlet. One can only hope that truth will cease to be seen as inappropriate in our part of the world, as this mentality is not helping us in any kind of way. I’ve been guilty of sharing articles on this blog from one Asian scientist in particular, who unapologetically research the various frequencies in traits among different populations. A very interesting topic indeed, unless you’re in denial over genuine diversity. After all it is the plethora and variance of life that makes this planet so very intriguing, but alas. Hopefully there will be more articles publishedย like this.ย *Applause* Applause* A sigh of relief *

“three-quarters of the epigenetic difference between the two ethnic subgroups could be accounted for by differences in the children’s genetic ancestry. The rest of the epigenetic differences, the authors suggest, may reflect a biological stamp made by the different experiences, practices, and environmental exposures distinct to the two ethnic subgroups.”

“Researchers and clinicians have known for many years that different racial and ethnic populations get diseases at different rates, respond differently to medications, and show very different results on standard clinical tests: “For a whole range of medical tests, whether your physician is told that your lab result is normal or abnormal depends entirely on the race/ethnicity box that you tick on an intake form,” Zaitlen said.”

This is a well-written article about current elitism and how it backfires and fails.

Moreย cyber crime. Watch out for online advertisers if you own a business.

Freemasons call for end to “discrimination” of members. (Maybe they are tired of being depicted as shapeshifting reptilians … I wonder why…..)

My deepest sympathies goes out toย Lana Del Rey.ย Not cool.

The author of this article completely forgets to credit Christian values and influence when alluding to the philanthropy of the past. It is a funny read nonetheless.

I’m spiritual yes, but this article is nothing short of disturbing in my opinion. Of all the kids I was exposed to as little and out of all of the various individuals I’ve run into, there have been very few who’ve ever fallen into the category of being genuinely gay/differently oriented. There was never any doubt in my mind however that these few individuals “were born this way,” this is especially noticeable when encountering a kid who obviously has the “wrong” gender. This is a rarity to run into.ย It is also crucial to note, that chemicals can potentially alter our preferences and identities to a certain extent, which I’ve mentioned previously. If you mess around with a person’s hormones before/during puberty you are playing with fire and run the risk of someone “becoming another gender,” or in other words: becoming confused and “ruined” from a traditional (and probably also medical) perspective. So regardless of how you look at it, it is obvious that once the change has happened, whether in the womb or outside, there is no going back. (I base this opinion on individuals who were injected with hormones and all of a sudden started “identifying” as something else, even in one case having a gender-altering-operation, from what I’ve gathered).

I find it astonishing that there would be people out there believing that so-called conversion therapy can have any effect at all whatsoever. It seems clear that it only ruins people, much like messing around with hormones. It is also obvious that a blank-slate theory has to be in place for people to believe in this. Nobody who understands heritability or genetics, even if only scratching the surface of it, would ever believe in the absurdity of a blank slate. It is so out-of-date that is beggars belief that this myth is still around. If people are so concerned with fighting gayness, they would have to do that on a genetic level, and of course in that case you’ll always have the question of ethics. There are people who will not abort babies with downs because they value all life. I’ve seen a video of a man with Downs protecting his right to life. It is heartbreaking hearing people protecting their right to existence, arguing against those who want to permanently remove them from our midst.

Last time I checked eugenics as practised by the Nazis is seen as a dark chapter in our history, ironically enough it can be argued that it never went out of practise, but that it rather changed “character.” I heard a heart-breaking story of how a woman was advised to abort her pregnancy by her doctor, due to the genes of her offspring; the doctor claimed that the baby had certain traits commonly found within the prison population and that the child would probably become problematic in the future, posing a potential threat. Due to the mother’s old age, she was advised to get rid of the child, since he would have been “too much to handle for her.” These type of practises happens in this day and age, in our “tolerant” and “loving” societies, full of “acceptance” and “equality.”

Apparently there shouldn’t be equality for all when it comes to the right to life. An interesting thing to think about … especially when taking into consideration that people displaying psychopathic traits don’t necessarily end up being a menace to society. There are functional individuals out there with internal and external dysfunctions, in fact, I wonder how many individuals we are potentially looking at removing prematurely, when considering how widespread minor and major quirks are. The amount of individuals suffering from mental health issues, as I’ve also written about before, is predicted to increase. The older you get the more you increase the risk of a hitting the wall mentally as well due to negative life-experiences. So I wonder if modern eugenicists are thinking much about all of this? You’ll have no people left in the end…Unless we are to finalize the ubermensch fantasy with our new tech….and how will that play out?

The latest from the political correctness brigade & our post-modern culture:

The Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation are receiving complaints after an online show was aired where participants drank their own urine and made omelettes out of vomit which they then ate. (I couldn’t even watch the footage in this article). Ironically enough the NRK stated that “their aim is to create content that can appeal to the YouTube generation,” to paraphrase. So I guess that says an awful lot about what people think of young people and their interests … Many years ago I sounded the alarm after hearing from peers in Norway that they had baked cakes with vomit and served it to their teachers and principal… My warning was not listened to, as I guess it was uncomfortable to hear this. In fact I don’t think my complaint ever reached the principal. So maybe it isn’t strange that NRK would broadcast what they did……

More political correctness coming from Sweden.ย Swedish Males to contemplate their own white privilege….

Sweden appointsย Pakistani Muslim Head of National Heritage Board.ย  Norwegians have always made jokes about Swedes being stupid, I always took this for friendly bantering … now I’m not so sure anymore … Scandinavian countries are constantly depicted as bastions of well-functioning liberalism … enough said.

Political correctness working retroactively … if you ever wanted a reason for not creating then check out these party-poopers. Makes me think of Tim Burton coming under fire due to his casting preferences.ย Lame.

A high school in America cancelled the screening of the legendary movie “Cool Runnings” since it was deemed politically incorrect … ย I’ve seen it several times in the past and it depicts a Jamaican Bobsled Team kicking ass. I guess this is offensive….

Why is Liberal California the poverty capital of America?

These are some really bad undercover videos revealing a high school teacher’s absolute contempt for theย U.S. Military. This is not good at all. One thing is to disagree with what the civilian leadership might be up to, but this portrayal of Military men as idiots is not only inaccurate it is also incredibly ungrateful. I feel for the young man who was singled out and made fun of in front of his entire class. If this is how the future of the U.S. Military is to be treated by the civilian population; picked on and singled out for mockery, then don’t expect much of a future. It is also important to add, that the UK Army are apparently experiencing a recruitment crisis….It is quite obvious that our Western Civilisation is struggling, on both sides of the Atlantic.ย 

The latest public hate-mail written to the Trump Administration:ย 

Silly argument, but a very funny acronym: “Preventing Allocation of Resources for Absurd Defense Expenditures

Vice President Mike Pence apparently needs to learn what American values are :ย I wonder if I’m a hero for coming out as straight?

More people hating on retired Marine General, now White House Chief of Staff, John Kelly. Quote from the author: “White House Chief of Staff John Kelly has just about shed his previous identity of presidential babysitter and taken on his final form, โ€œjust another bigoted Trump Administration loose cannon.โ€ With his comments earlier this week calling Dreamers โ€œlazy,โ€ Kelly finally alienated the last remaining supporters he may have had amongst functional, literate Americans.

The other night I decided to check out an interview with White House Chief of Staff (ret.) Marine Gen. John F. Kelly, which was very interesting indeed, funny enough there was a link in the suggested area to a commentary video, which I decided to watch afterwards. To call it ridiculous would be an understatement as the creators of this content only really engaged in name calling and reached the conclusion, for example, that Trump being described as occasionally ย “uninformed” on certain topics during his campaign before receiving access to intelligence/security briefings was the exact same thing as declaring the US President an idiot.

After watching this enlightening commentary, and partially watching another one, not to forget taking a look at the comment section, I was reminded of how lame it is with people who merely comment on other’s work rather than actually producing something themselves. How utterly boring, not to mention how easy it is, to have opinions about other’s whereabouts. Which of course made me think of my own blog; where I, like so many others in this digital age, share my own viewpoints. I think my main reason for doing so is that I personally feel like the political narrative is dominated by, what shall I say “forces,” who create a false skewed impression, which is precisely why it is shocking to see election results, for example, as these along with surveys can reveal how evenly split opinions actually are in some cases. I’ll just quote a certain somebody who once said: ” There is no such thing as public opinion. There is only published opinion.”

It is also difficult to let go of thoughts concerning the current state of affairs over here on our continent, especially when there are those who literally advocate for, as I’ve said before, the removal of “offensive statues,” and the blatant censorship of curriculum, because the material is “too white.” (Caving to anti-western propaganda does no good either, as these people are never satisfied and keep on pushing, pushing, pushing and pushing. When do you hear a simple thank you even from any of these advocates?)

Right now I’m reading Douglas Murray’s latest book ” The Strange Death of Europe” and it is difficult to do that without occasionally feeling nauseated as it feels like I’m reading not just my own death sentence, but everyone else’s too. :/

Today I checked out the latest video from Gad Saad, which is hilarious and very true indeed. I don’t know if I’ve written it, but I know that I’ve previously said that artists should stay neutral. If you feel like saying something it should shine through in your work. Yet that proves to be easier said than done, especially when it seems like everyone has an official opinion about everything, and you fundamentally disagree with a lot of it. These videos from Gad Saad are really good and absolutely worth a watch. It is also my impression that musicians/artists aren’t challenged enough by those around them, but then again I think that the blame cannot entirely be placed on the team. There are numerous stories out there of musicians and artists who don’t follow instructions and never really welcome feedback from anyone at all. There are artists who would literally fall into the category of unmanageable.

Anyway, I will agree with what Gad Saad is saying … yes, donations are more than welcome since Jay-Z apparently doesn’t need his money anymore……..I certainly volunteer to relieve him of his horrible burden, as I’m sure that I would manage to put it to good use, I’m sure that there are lots of other people out there who would be more than willing to help Jay-Z and his wife, since money is a useless commodity … according to him………well as I said above: Donations Welcome ๐Ÿ˜›
