EU to Spain: You Can’t Use Force To Defend Border

It is pretty normal and natural that any society can reserve the right to apprehend those who are violating their laws or borders, just as one would expect the Police to use force if someone was beginning to resist their arrest, even if such a crime would not normally seemingly merit violent of action.

It is simply an issue of not allowing anyone to break the law without consequence.

But not the case to the PC EU:

EU Interior Commissioner Cecilia Malmström has warned Spain that it cannot use force to prevent immigrants from crossing the border into its North African enclaves of Ceuta and Melilla. The commissioner said that she would not hesitate to take action if she saw clear signs of European laws being broken, reports the Público online new site.

Malmström’s comments on Monday came days after a controversy flared up over a video in which a sub-Saharan migrant is shown being beaten by Civil Guard officers after he climbed the fence separating Morocco from Melilla.

“Border vigilance measures should be proportional and force can only be used when it is necessary and required in order for agents to continue to carry out their duties, to protect their own safety and their lives. Force must not be used as a deterrent against the unauthorised crossing of the border,” the Swedish commissioner said in answer to a question asked in the European Parliament by a Basque Country MEP representing the Bildu party, Josu Juaristi.

The Local

Basically, a hilarious standard is being created because it gives the Eurocommunists an upset stomach to think that force might be used in the process of arresting a flagrant violator of the standing laws.

Now, perhaps such a statement from a fringe party during a season where Europe faced no immigration issues would be somehow respectable, because, after all, there is no pressing need to curb illegal entry, but even still…

It is illegal to enter the country without permission; it is likewise illegal to use force as an officer to enforce this crime (?).

We are trapped in a world of absurdity because politicians increasingly ratchet up their sense of humanity until ‘force’ itself, when in the upholding of the law, is no longer ‘legal.’

But many of these European states have brought this upon themselves when they have willfully bent their necks to a central authority that is hellbent on driving Europe into the ground.

Politics of the Bible: Romans 13

This is one of the more interesting passages — now, just read it, and I will provide some contextualization towards the end:

Romans 13:

“Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. 2 Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. 3 For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and you will be commended. 4 For the one in authority is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for rulers do not bear the sword for no reason. They are God’s servants, agents of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer. 5 Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also as a matter of conscience. 6 This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God’s servants, who give their full time to governing. 7 Give to everyone what you owe them: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.”

The funny thing is is that this was written to people living in an officially Pagan Empire that was decadent, rife with sex & indulgence, filled with slavery & all manner of other injustices, and it was written by a man who, while citizen of the Empire, was also a Hellenic Jew who was a former Jewish zealot that persecuted liberal Jews & Christians for not being Pharisees. We are literally talking about the most objective, abstract and divorced from bias opinion possible coming from the mouth of Paul on this one.

His integrity and position are incredible! Mindblowing, even. It is hard to fully grasp what is going on here simply because the fellow had no reason, no motive, to pledge any modicum of loyalty to Caesar or any other authority; indeed, Christ Himself was like the fabled Socrates drinking the hemlock at the command of the authorities.

There’s something to be said of this.

It shows some aspect of fatalism within early Christendom, but it also clearly outlines a devout sense of duty to the traditionalist perspectives of authority like that of Guenon or Evola.

In some sense it illustrates the commitment that these radical Christians had to the almost apolitical nature of Christendom. Truly, a radical passage, and one that also speaks of the Ruler – Subject relationship as it was in that culture.

A lot of things can be discussed via this passage and while I could go on, I still haven’t fully formulated my thoughts, and rather, I invite my readers on Facebook/Twitter and elsewhere to discuss or enjoy the depth and context of this passage.

Quick Analysis Of US Genetic Ancestry & Percentage Of Mixed

I recently was perusing a forum and saw an interesting paper brought up by the famous website, 23&Me, which specializes in genetic testing. While the famous claim is often made by Americans that they possess some Native American ancestry, it appears that it might not be true.

According to this paper, it is believed that native American ancestry among European-Americans occurs the most in North Dakota & Louisiana, and here it measures to roughly 4% of the population possessing at least 2% Native American DNA; when the threshold is lessened to 1%, it reaches 8% in Louisiana, but there is no otherwise significant rise… The same paper stated that roughly 1.4% of European-Americans carry African genetic ancestry, and that it is naturally most high in places like South Carolina and, again Louisiana. That number jumps dramatically when the threshold is lowered to 1%, and in some states it reaches nearly 10% of the population, But, on average, it is somewhere between 1 & 3% of all European Americans that carry African American ancestry.

Nearly all of this information comes from Page 11 of The Report.

I did not go into the analysis of Latino & African-American populations because it was largely what we expected: Latinos being a large mix, though perhaps more white than we think in specific populations, but by and large, the average Latino in the US being 65% European. Likewise, the average African American is 24% European. The Latino percentage of European seems somewhat surprising, but I anticipated the number for African Americans.

Some of the conclusions we can make:

– Most of the people who claim to be part Native American are probably not.

– Many of the people who claim to be part Native American, especially in the South, are perpetuating a family myth that was started to probably hide their African slave ancestry.

– Ironically though not surprisingly, it is the traditionally more racist states that have white people who are more likely to possess African-American ancestry.

I would love to see more information on these sorts of things in the future.

Russell Brad: Useful Idiot or Legit Rebel?

I am always skeptical when someone becomes celebrated by mainstream media or the news as a potential leader of the people, some icon of rebellion. Chances are, the have been selected, celebrated and endorsed precisely because some Elites have viewed their ideas as appealing to them. And what we know about Elites: they never have any intention to meaningfully give up their power or influence, and would prefer to extend it more than anything else.

Someone has decided that Russell Brand, perhaps, is the sort of useful idiot that can go out and shill for vague values and “revolution,” and is perhaps a good means to making a buck… Or, thre’s the potential that he could be some true rebel that has somehow landed a gig.

Now when someone tells me that the Occupy Wall Street movement was some eye opening experience for them, and I had not heard about their political views before hand… I immediately become skeptical.

I’ve been having political thoughts (albeit bad ones) since a kid, and I quickly became skeptical and repelled by the mainstream issues that were even chosen and view them all as some sort of diversion.

I heard some intereting analysis from a fellow on PoFo not too long ago (by the name of Grassroots1), who noted that e felt that the Tea Party & OWS would have been good allies. For, in the end, both had a similar agenda, and both wanted meaningful change to a culture of public bailouts of private corporations. In that there was some good analysis and potential for OWS…

But what we quickly saw occur was OWS become an incredibly delineated, solitary “rebellion” of just one story within the greater discontent, and we also saw that the organization became embedded and dominated by typical radicals that would never be able to extend their hands to a broader swathe of society.

I am inclined to believe that Russell Brand is just a silly figure that, if we aren’t careful, will be expected to “speak for our generation” (GOD FORBID!!!), and to “lead us.”

I tell you: anywhere Russell Brand leads you will have to do with his personal bank account and book deal (though he might not know or admit it), and it will have to do more specifically with whatever agenda the Elites behind him have in mind.

Don’t buy his book.

Don’t follow his lead.

Don’t pay attention. Unless it is to laugh… Perhaps he is a good comedian, after all, but I see no reason why his gestures here shouldn’t be treated as another comedic gesture.

Not to mention I do not even know of how to make of the douchey-ness that seeps through towards the end of the interview.

Femen Highlights Insanity of French PC Courts

Femen, the radical feminist organization which has garnered fame for utter insanity, has proven itself useful in pointing out the ridiculous nature of the occupied & degenerate Western liberal justice system which, having no regard for any of its own institutions nor any concept of propriety, has essentially sided with Femen and thrown the book at others who have challenged their order.


No doubt, a simple watch through the video will reveal just how utterly nutty the Femen tactics are (as is to be expeced) but the fact that after pulling such a stunt they received 1,500 Euros each for being rouged up by guards shows precisely the nature of liberal European courts who have zero regard for the sanctity of some of their greatest heritage sites, but would hold guards to exaggerated standards while arresting such cretins.

And, of course, while the stunt pulled off on the French island is utterly unacceptable, it is a far cry off compared to Femen’s deed, and the punishment that they received was far lesser.

This is why I love Russia Today: it is one of the few reliable, famous sources that will actually go after the hypocrisy of the West, and will point out the negativity of the direction that we have been taking for a very long time.

The level of hypocrisy within Western institutions, and the level to which they pander to the far left and slap their wrists lightly while witch hunting the right wing, is an issue that should be of a concern to everyone who has ever considered that democracy should be a free & fair notion.

This isn’t even really a ‘left vs. right’ issue, but it is one where we are seeing a gross double standard within institutions that should be objective more or less.

Another fun note:

I turn 30 today.

Yay, me.

James Kalb & Defining Of Sexuality

Sexual politics has become a thing dominating modern politics for the last two decades. The irony is that modern man seems to always complain about the lack of privacy that we enjoy, yet at the same time these issues are pressured to become public affairs. There are massive attempts to manipulate public opinion and to force certain agendas down our throats and so, it is with some degree of regret, that I find myself in the world of people commenting on the highly personal.

It is, no doubt, a victory of misguided or nefarious forces to turn the highly private into the highly public, and to shift discussion towards a decidedly individual topic. But, nonetheless, we must present our opinions respectfully when it is relevant, and stand up for our positions.

Some quotations form James Kalb I caught off of a great Tweeter’s feed:

The message here is one that should be rather clear… That to some degree our sexuality does have greater ramifications, and thereby it isn’t some pleasant choice that we make, but it is rather always bearing a large impact on those around us.

Perhaps it could, in some universe, be a private affair, but that is certainly not our universe, and it is certainly not even the will of those who actively engage in sexual politics who attempt to tie everything back to an issue of our individual sexualities.

And it is to them that the suggestion ought to be made that the choices which we make as people do have large impacts on everyone that is around us. Thus, we see why there has always been an attachment to conservative viewpoints on the sexuality of people — to avoid the more pervasive, negative impacts that sexuality can have upon vast numbers of people.

The notion is simple, and something that nearly all of us understand intuitively: to avoid problems and confusions over things we limit the scope of people allowed to use them. Not because we hate people, but because we understand that mistakes are regularly made and the more that people are involved in them the more confusing the situations become, and the greater risk of disaster exists.

Thus: sexuality, regardless of what we want, is ideally restricted to the confines of monogamous relationships that are public and officiously sanctioned.

Love is, as they say, ironically larger than just you or me, it is larger than just any single couple or any single set of desires or preferences, but because of those far ranging impacts, it is something that ought to be minimalized and played down whenever possible.

And it is likewise important to remember that the basis of things that we choose ought not be to obtain pleasure or personal gratification, but ought to likewise be aimed at having a positive impact on those around us. And that such choices are a superior reflection on ourselves when we prioritize a greater social harmony over a personal indulgence.

It is precisely for reasons like these that I have given up alcohol.

I don’t think any of these statements should be treated as controversial, but God knows, even when speaking in the least offensive terms possible, it is common for fault to be found in any words on the topic.

Nobel Peace Prize Winner Asked Other Peace Prize Winner to Stop Bombing Her Country (LOL?)

This is the sort of comedy that ensues when you give a Nobel peace prize to Pres. Obama before he started his own Presidency…

For the first time in history, and a point that I hope will not be lost on historians in 100 years, we have seen one Nobel Peace Prize winner ask another Nobel Peace Prize winner to essentially stop bombing to smitherines her country…

… And to just re-emphasize this, let’s also throw into the picture the fact that the bombing campaign is being conducted by bloody robots…. But they aren’t bloody; they fly too high to be bloody.

On Friday morning, 17 year-old Pakistani activist Malala Yousafzai won the Nobel Peace Prize. Yousafzai’s prize is well-deserved: she’s been a prominent campaigner for girls’ education for years, and survived a Taliban assassination attempt for her efforts.

But women’s education isn’t Malala’s only cause. She’s also waged a prominent campaign on a topic Americans aren’t talking much about nowadays: the drone war in Pakistan.

In characteristically bold fashion, Yousafzai brought these concerns up in a meeting with President Obama back in October 2013 — one that had originally been held to celebrate her commitment to education.

“I thanked President Obama for the United States’ work in supporting education in Pakistan and Afghanistan and for Syrian refugees,” Yousafzai said in a statement after the meeting — before turning to drones. “I also expressed my concerns that drone attacks are fueling terrorism. Innocent victims are killed in these acts, and they lead to resentment among the Pakistani people. If we refocus efforts on education it will make a big impact.”

The White House statement on its meeting with Yousafzai left that bit out.


Again, I merely point out what a hilarious moment in history when two recipients of the same peace prize are in this situation…

Perhaps the absurd decision makers of the Nobel Peace Prize committee ought to be blamed for this situation.

The Fight for Meaning & the Jewish Teen Girl Who Left for ISIS

We are shocked by the number of young people from Western backgrounds joining ISIS, we tell ourselves. Often times these are the sons and daughters of immigrants from Muslim states, and somehow this lessens the impact of the blow… We are able through these stories to further other the Muslims living among us, and we are able to somehow ascribe to them all some nefarious, radical Islam that is working against us. But I think many of us, still, are not that shocked, and we are reluctant to admit that there is more going on than what is seen at the surface.

Part of the confusing story runs below:

Dozens of French teenagers, including a young Jewish girl, have fled the country to join Islamic State militants fighting in Syria and Iraq, French intelligence has revealed.

On the day she left for Syria, Sahra strode along the train platform with two bulky schoolbags slung over her shoulder. In a grainy image caught on security camera, the French teen tucks her hair into a headscarf.

Just two months earlier and a two-hour drive away, Nora, also a teen girl, had embarked on a similar journey in similar clothes. Her brother later learned she’d been leaving the house every day in jeans and a pullover, then changing into a full-body veil.

Neither had ever set foot on an airplane. Yet both journeys were planned with the precision of a seasoned traveler and expert in deception, from Sahra’s ticket for the March 11 Marseille-Istanbul flight, to Nora’s secret Facebook account and overnight crash pad in Paris.

The actual bedroom of one of the teen girls off to join the company of ISIS

The teenagers travelling to join ISIS come from all walks of life, and although most are first and second generation immigrants from Muslim countries, many come from white French backgrounds.

Despite ISIS repeatedly expressing of deep hatred of Jews, there was even a Jewish girl, according to a security official who spoke anonymously because rules forbid him to discuss open investigations.

Daily Mail

What brings teenagers raised in largely moderate homes and a Jewish girl to the ranks of ISIS?

The Daily Mail would have you believe that there are incredible recruiting networks that are able to pull in the youth through brainwashing, but let’s be frank with ourselves… It may be easy to convince a few, random loners to leave their homes, but certainly there is something else at work here when we are seeing Western youths measured in the hundreds (if not thousands) turning their backs on our societies and exiting.

The fact is that there is something else that pushes them away from our society, and takes away all desire for the children of Muslim immigrants to assimilate, and it is something that many of us Western kids felt even in our youths as non-Muslims.

There is a stench of decay — a stench particularly present among the youth, who are the most vulnerable to the promotions of pop culture. Drug abuse, sexual indulgence and materialism are always things that strike hard when we are younger and their grip on us loosens as we age and become more mature — one cannot help but imagine that such an influence, as it has increased in America & Europe and is veritably being promoted through pop culture, has had a profound affect on the psychology of young people. Thus, radical rebellions against this are popping up, and some are even going so far as to join ISIS.

This is something that is ultimately predictable, and has been predicted, by historians before us. The idea that when there is a cultural decay within the society, and the values of it slip away, the society gains more friction and more division, as well as becomes weak and splintered. One portion of the society indulges in drugs, another in sex, another in alcohol ,another in food and gluttony;  and as the individual stands alone against the burgeoning swell of forces around them, they seek out cults and radical expressions to affirm some sense of meaning.

There is no graspable identity to being Canadian, American, French or Australian anymore, and there is no sense of mission or purpose. What there is, though, is a profound sense of meaninglessness that comes from being left to one’s own devices in a society that believes in liberty and diversity, and in this vacuum only a sense of indulgence and materialism has become prominent.

There really is no surprise that people would choose to not be Canadian, American, etc., and would rather choose to be something that is a strong manifestation of identity or meaning, and for some people this involves membership in a subculture and still for others it has meant even going so far as to join radical organizations like ISIS. Ironic though it may be, one of the things that propels forward both the far right groups throughout USA & Europe is the same that popularizes Islamic extremism.

The phenomena is only going to continue and worsen until the time where a major cultural overhaul and reevaluation occurs in the soul of Western civilization.

All we can really do is sit and wait. But let’s not be surprised…

Given a choice between being a 21 year old regular Parisian, Londoner or New Yorker whose existence consists of empty materialism, drug abuse, sex and ‘seeking mammon,’ or being a person with a mission, a cause, and a purpose… What would you choose?

Some can find meaning through the military or their Church group, but for some the postmodern society is so repellent that only those subcultures which are extreme rebellions can offer up any solace.

The lesson is: when we give no sense of great meaning or cultural identity to our youth they are bound to seek it out elsewhere, and in an expression that might be upsetting.

Is Ebola Evolving To Become Airborne?

I am no expert at all but this is an extremely important question as there seems to be a higher rate of infection than what seems potential through the explanation. They have made it sound that it can only, exclusively be passed through direct contact with bodily fluid, yet it seems that the virus is circulating quick enough, even among health care professionals that have taken extensive precautions.

This leaves open professionals and experts that are speculating we could be witnessing the evolution of Ebola into a higher, more infectious and deadly form:

Virologist, Dr. Philip K. Russell who led the Ebola research in the U.S. Army’s Medical Research and Development Command, is on Peters’s side. The fact that many things about the disease are still unknown is something to consider.

“I see the reasons to dampen down public fears,” Russell said. “But scientifically, we’re in the middle of the first experiment of multiple, serial passages of Ebola virus in man. God knows what this virus is going to look like. I don’t.”

Christian Today

‘Unqualified assurances that Ebola is not spread through the air are “misleading”.’

Dr C J Peters, who has undertaken research into Ebola for America’s Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, told the paper: ‘We just don’t have the data to exclude it [becoming airborne].’

In September, Michael Osterholm, the director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota, writing in the New York Times, said experts who believe that Ebola could become airborne are loathed to discuss their concerns in public, for fear of whipping up hysteria.

Discussing the possible future course of the current outbreak, he said: ‘The second possibility is one that virologists are loath to discuss openly but are definitely considering in private: that an Ebola virus could mutate to become transmissible through the air.’

Dr Osterholm warns viruses similar to Ebola are notorious for replicating and reinventing themselves.

It means the virus that first broke out in Guinea in February may be very different to the one now invading other parts of West Africa.

Pointing to the example of the H1N1 influenza virus that saw bird flu sweep the globe in 2009, Dr Osterholm said: ‘If certain mutations occurred, it would mean that just breathing would put one at risk of contracting Ebola.’

Dr Osterholm said public health officials, while discussing the possibility in private, are reluctant to air their concerns.

He said scientists across the world do not know enough about genetics to be able to say how the Ebola virus will change over time.

Daily Mail

Any look at the articles, though, will provide extensive opinion that it is not airborne, and that such a change is highly unlikely. But lest us not forget that such a change will always seem highly unlikely until it is suddenly happening on a notable scale.

While I am definitely not counting on it being a situation where the virus is airborne, I am certainly not feeling particularly secure about the situation, and I feel that the safety meausres in place have been much like everything else that Pres. Obama has done: very slow to come about and only being increased in a very begrudging faction. Some misled sense of political correctness has led to this point.

I think it seems unlikely that such a development as airborne ebola has come, but can it truly be ruled out in an environment when we have seen unprecedented levels of infection spiraling out of control? And it also seems likely that the disease is somehow evolving, and in its evolution the rate of contagion has become greater.

Regardless, we need to pay attention to the story as it unfolds.

The Importance of Affection for Animals

Yesterday I was out at a cafe with a good friend and we contemplated the distressing nature of fear of animals… we found it rather distressing that there are many modern peoples with a fear or antipathy towards animals, or people who even just view animals as somehow ‘out of place.’ I fear that this might even be a growing phenomena for young people around the world today.

All of human history, until the last 100 years, has been characterized by the overwhelming majority of people being close & intimate with a variety of domesticated animals. And just to give a shout out to our veg friends: in some instances the labor & proximity with these animals did not even involve a meat based diet, but the animals were in better circumstances than any factory farm and were used merely for their byproducts like milk or eggs, a la Hindu or Buddhist communities…

Point being: our agrarian or maritime communities were incredibly dependent on the living creatures around them, and in their daily lives there was a close proximity to a variety of animals, whether wild or domesticated.

The very symbolism and language used by our ancestors was one that was colored with animals & nature.

The fact that now there are modern children with unrealistic perspectives on animals, and even sometimes fear of dogs they find to be ‘big,’ is something that I find sad. I think it is a grave disservice to children that they do not grow up in an environment where they have been able to spend time positively with animals — whether as pets or adventures into nature where they come into closer contact. I do sympathize with people who have concerns about the humanity of keeping pets, naturally, but these people get a pass in the sense that it is their very concern for the well being of creatures that has influenced their decision making — and such a process will, no doubt, leave a relatively positive perception of animals to the people around them that they influence…

I remember a Star Trek episode where the children on the Enteprise, during class, were playing with puppies and a variety of animals, as in the future it was seemed to still be incredibly important for children to develop appreciation and proximity to animals. Similarly, I’d support any curriculum that could facilitate familiarizing children with animals & giving them positive experiences from which to grow themselves into being less fearful and more conscious of the animals around them.

I couldn’t find screen caps of that particular episode but this picture certainly suffices & is adorable.

We need to take great pains to ground ourselves… To be more humble, to be more kind; to be more considerate of others, and to be practiced in our high moral standards…

A big part of that is to also be compassionate and kind to animals, and to pass that on to others, and perhaps this is something that even affects us more deeply than we initially consider it to.
