Snapshots of the current Narrative.

As usual I’ve written notes of what I ought to blog about since there is a lot to pick from.

That being said I’m currently staring at three articles, whose presence in my tabs are starting to annoy me since I haven’t really gotten around to writing what I was planning.

So even though this isn’t the intended context … well here we go:

This ad was deemed racist by news outlets and social media platforms alike. I’m not quite sure why it is racist to enforce and protect ones border, nor do I understand why it is “mean” to point out issues with imported criminals. As I’ve written about before: I performed in a couple of prisons over in Norway in 2014, and I was told to speak English when addressing the prisoners since so many of them were foreigners. The political opinion circus grows old at one point or the other. What’s annoying is that even if you lose interest, decisions taken by others still impact you and your family and what you do…

The synagogue shooting in America was sad for sure, but this article is full of inaccuracies to such an extent that it was painful to read it. I now struggle with reading “the news.” I was contemplating pointing out the inaccuracies, but I do believe that this is something that I’ve done on other occasions with other articles on this blog, and an activity such as that can become uninteresting at a certain point. I do believe in Truth. Which is probably why I shouldn’t read “the news.”

In this article about the UK recruiting foreigners with no ties to this country into their military, (not as part of separate units, but as part of the main body), it is claimed that Britons don’t want to fight anymore. I think I’ve mentioned elsewhere on this blog that you might get a bit of a recruitment crisis if you are engaged in all sorts of strange abstract operations abroad, maybe not with those who just want to fight for the sake of fighting, but surely among those who are patriots and want to fight to defend their country specifically. The claim of the article is therefore false. Just because a specific political establishment struggle to recruit people for their military campaigns, doesn’t mean that there is an unwillingness to fight for an actual Nation and/or a home-territory. Something that has been largely left out of our “news” is the fact that young men travelled over to Ukraine to voluntarily fight. A war that I have never mentioned on this blog at all. There are also Westerners who went down to Syria (I believe) just to get combat experience. New-Europeans have also joined their original Nations by voluntarily fighting for their ancestral in-group, which again means that there are plenty of people on this continent willing to fight in one way or another, whether they join our enemies or go private. Whether they protest their governments or go into a war zone voluntarily, showing up out of nowhere to sign up to fight for whatever cause.

Once again, I should probably avoid “the news.” There are enough books out there to read anyway and I personally don’t think that anything is more relevant than History. My brother is currently reading about pre-Nation-State Europe and that is surely an interesting topic to look into.

The organic nature of humanity is well reflected in what we build. Civilisations are born and nurtured before they rot and decompose. One political order arise only to eclipse another. A ruling class is built upon the ashes of the ruling order of the past. And on and on this cycle goes, perfectly described in Ecclesiastes: “What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done; and there is nothing new under the sun.”

Amen.

United American Patriots & The Royal British Legion.

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

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

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

Dear Berit,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Derrick reacted immediately – firing and killing the suspect.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Yours truly,
Mrs. Renee Myers

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

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

Blame It On The Russians…

Right.  So today I came across an article that seemed interesting and legit at first referring to an interview with the English Secretary of Defence. It certainly echoed other articles I’ve come across with Americans complaining about their military readiness and UK generals doing the same; complaints are publicly filed for the whole world to see from several western Nations.

Female participation is criticised since it makes the forces less combat effective, the attitude of (some I hope) students at military institutions are criticised on both sides of the Atlantic, there seems to be no end to the backlash or complaints made public, which I’m guessing is the result of people rejecting the politically correct culture enforced upon them by politicians and/or a cry for help when it comes to better equipment, more funding or maybe a better way to allocate funds.

A great deal of these things I’ve chosen not to share on my blog, such as a political correctness manual, where “subconscious bias” was fought against. Simply put: if a tiger jumps out of the bushes, you should first spend some time contemplating if the tiger is dangerous and a genuine threat before attacking it, because it could potentially be politically incorrect to do so. This of course refers to social issues within the military and a desire to make military culture more like civilian society, and more appealing to women and members of the LGBTQ community… However it does seem as if though normal human instincts should be fought against and further broken down, which leaves me wondering how a culture like this will affect people in combat?

This political correctness manual was so embarrassing to read, in fact so worrying to see as a civilian, that I decided not to publish it, as I thought of it as a disrespectful act to share something of this nature with anyone. Not to forget something that could potentially work against the recruitment of patriotic individuals and depict the military in an unflattering light. Can it potentially help our armed forces to share articles and pass these around? Can the public help or will it just damage reputation and morale? I certainly think that it can have the effect of pushing more young men into the private sector. This political correctness crusade can become a major issue in the future I think.

Yet, after coming across more and more and more complaints, I decided to do so anyway,    as part of an entry. This PC Manual is official and available for anyone to read and download….. I don’t know how smart that is, but I guess that it is from a post-modern perspective….

Yet the article I read today was, how should I put it, interesting (in lack of a better word) due to the headline pictured above, chosen by the journalist, I’m guessing. Or hoping.

The reason as to why I’m reluctant to share “the-Russians-are-coming-to-get-us-narratives” on my blog should not be surprising, as once again we are moving into “the-boy-who-cried-wolf-territory,” a dangerous narrative to peddle when you are a leader….or more correctly put: this seems to be the case when observing things from a citizen’s perspective, whether correct or not.

What I’m witnessing when travelling/moving around in Europe, what I have seen and heard, what other people are talking about, is apparently Russian propaganda. How can the civilian population take the Russia threat seriously, when the current, imported, internal, threat is not properly addressed by our leadership? It can easily seem (whether genuine or not) that Russia gets picked as a scapegoat, rather than addressing the very real issues and problems that the European population have to deal with everyday. Is Putin to blame for how the so-called migration crisis is handled by the European leadership? Are the Russians to blame for the cultural tensions that we are currently facing as a result of street level diversity and anti-western measures? Sure, who really knows who is behind a bomb going off here and there, but what do you do, when bombs, as I’ve said before, are just the tip of the iceberg? The problems that we Europeans have to deal with are real and genuine and not the result of Russian interference, unless they secretly run the entire world and we are all Russian puppets, which sounds nothing short of insane.

According to Hillary Clinton, Putin was the Godfather of the Alt-Right. As if though Nationalistic sentiments cannot emerge without Russian interference. Trump’s victory was also the result of Russian interference, and so is the general disgruntled air among the European populace, tired of losing their culture and countries to foreigners and politicians with their own strange agenda. I’m guessing that fragmentation within the U.S.A. as a result of criminal gangs and self-segregation, also can be pinned on the Russians. Social cohesion/trust actually breaks down the more ethnic/racial diversity you get within your borders……I’ve linked to articles and studies about this here on my blog, studies and articles by experts from various backgrounds.

Anyway… check this out: currently I’ve borrowed a whole bunch of books about roughly the same topic; in one of these I found a paragraph describing how fearful the English were of a 5th column during WW2. The intelligence community were not interested in German infiltration. Do I have to explain how absurd it this to read about this in the current year? Infiltration is welcomed into our societies, you’ll be called a bigot if you don’t want 5th columns. So if this is the impression civilians get, then how on earth can the Russia narrative be expected to be successful? Where are these Russians destroying us from within? I don’t see them, do you? I do however see expansionist militant Islam, and how new-Europeans carve out territories for themselves (while defending these from us) and as I’ve said before, how long does it take before these expand any further?

It might be that we will be taken by surprise, that Washington’s never-ending Russia paranoia finally will be proven to be right, but as a member of the civilian population, it is very awkward, strange and absurd to buy into this narrative, especially if it is promoted by people in official denial over the issues and problems that Ethnic-Europeans now face. While the people in power officially address China and Russia as our number one enemies, I think civilians will have a hard time to relate, while trying to live normal lives in an ever-changing Europe. Simply put, people are losing their sense of safety, not because of a Russian presence (at this time of writing) but because of the new arrivals into Europe and how scandalously this has been handled. Everything is changing and many are extremely disgruntled with our western leadership as a result, but I guess we should blame that on the Russians……..

 

UK Military “Close to Breaking” (what the hell???)

So a while back I heard of the ridiculous political-correctness propaganda forced upon the UK Navy; I didn’t share it on here back then, but here it is: READ HERE. Some months later I laughed a bit when I heard that the UK Military apparently are looking for “future leaders with the right personality” (to paraphrase) since there seems to be a problem with the attitude of individuals being recruited into the Military from the politically correct SJW factories….(hmmm..I wonder why?)

Apparently they are looking for people with leadership qualities … I also remember seeing that Donald Trump’s anti-transgender move was criticised by military figures here in the UK, but lo-and-behold, what did I just see over at Yahoo news? crazy.

In the middle of all of our terrorist attacks this year I decided to actually find out how big the British Military is and back then I published this: The British Military & Police Force in Numbers.

Now it has just been revealed that retired British Army General Sir Richard Barrons is sounding the alarm, which is certainly disturbing news. If this is true I have to admit that I am genuinely surprised; sure I’ve had my suspicions about the state of affairs after figuring out how small our forces are, but technologically I was convinced that we were ready for anything. Not that we apparently have “an Army that is now broadly speaking 20 years out of date.” This sounds more like the comedy that is Sweden or the tragedy that is Norway. I thought England was in a much stronger and better position; not that it takes much to be that … now that I think of it :/

A retired British Army general has described the UK military as “not fit for purpose” and warned that North Korea might be able to hit London with a nuclear missile “within the next 12 to 18 months”.

General Sir Richard Barrons, until recently one of the country’s most senior military chiefs, told the Commons Defence Select Committee that Britain would struggle to defend itself if attacked and any attempts to reduce the size of the Royal Marines would be “folly”.

“There are clearly existential threats to our country and they come in many forms,” he said to the cross-party group of MPs.

“They come in the form of Daesh (Islamic State), who if they could, would find weapons of mass destruction and apply them to the UK.

“We are locked in a daily confrontation with Russia, the Prime Minister said so herself yesterday.

“We are looking at North Korea which within the next 12 to 18 months will make a nuclear missile to an intercontinental range ballistic missile that could reach London and we can’t deal with that.”

He added: “We now live in an age where people who are not on our side have capability that they could, I’m not saying they will, but could, inflict on the UK homeland at short notice which we can’t deal with.”

Sir Richard had a long career in the Army which included tours of Northern Ireland, Kosovo, Iraq and Afghanistan.

As Commander of Joint Forces Command, he had responsibilities for all three armed services. He retired only last year, something which makes his comments all the more relevant and pointed.

He said: “The people who are in defence…they’re never going to say publically, or to themselves, or to their enemy, or to their allies, that we’re broken but when they fly, sail or deploy on the land and they look at their equipment, they look at their sustainability and they look at their shortfalls in training and they look at their allies, they know they are not fit for purpose.”

General Barrons was giving evidence to the Defence Select Committee during a session about the ongoing national security review. The review is due to be published next year and will likely result in more cuts to the armed forces.

Warning that the UK military is “close to breaking”, the retired general said that unless the Government provides more money “it will fall over”.

He added: “The first discussion in Government should be ‘how much risk are we running in the world and what do we need to do to fix it?’

“They don’t seem to want to have that discussion and so you end up with the risk of a ridiculous zero-sum discussion, both within a service…and between the services which is why you end up with, currently, a Navy that is structurally underfunded, an Air Force that is holding together a bunch of very good equipment but really at the edge of their engineering and support capacity and an Army that is now broadly speaking 20 years out of date.”
