The Morning Rant: J.V. Edition

punk-monkey.jpg

Ah...the European Left has been angry at the Nazis for 60 years for not finishing the job they started. Corbyn is simply the latest in a long line of Arabists with reflexive antipathy for the Jewish state, in his case for both philosophical and political reasons. Appealing to the masses of Muslim unemployed (80% unemployment in the UK) as a Jew-hater locks them in as a reliable voting block. The visceral hatred of all things Jewish and Israeli is just his inner Nazi emerging. While he is the nutty head of the UK chapter of FinalSolution Part II, there is a significant core in the hard left that agrees with pretty much everything he says. Unfortunately for them, Their power is no longer derived from industrial and military might. Israel is perfectly capable of conquering most of Europe. Why, they even have planes that can fly! So the heirs of the Nazis must attack world Jewry in different ways. It is purely a function of manipulation of the media and rabble rousing at the UN and other NGOs. Unfortunately for the people of the UK, the Left has completely co-opted vast swathes of government, so there is an endless stream of leftist-supporting muzzies pouring into England
Footage emerges of Corbyn saying BBC 'biased' toward 'Israel's right to exist'
I think there is a bias towards saying that Israel is a democracy in the Middle East, Israel has a right to exist, Israel has its security concerns
Amazing that of the 200 countries on earth, it is Israel that must be delegitimatized.

Do you want to hear my honest criticism of Israel? It is too free. The tolerance of the crypto-Islamists among many Arabs living in Israel is a dangerous policy and does nothing to strengthen democracy or improve the country's standing on the world stage. And the rules of engagement for dealing with the daily border incursions and rocket launches are unbelievably strict. That flows from a misguided desire to be seen by the world as compassionate and reasonable. But that too is wrong, because most of the world will never see Israel as anything other than those pesky Yids who didn't have the decency to line up quietly and march into the gas chambers.

A few dozen 105mm howitzers doing counter-battery duty on the border with the Gaza Strip would do wonders. One rocket? 50 rounds of HE. 10 rockets? 500 rounds of HE plus a bonus helicopter strike!

A Sanctuary City Released This Illegal Immigrant. It Turns Out He Was A Child Rapist
An illegal immigrant who the city of Philadelphia refused to turn over to federal immigration officers in 2014 is now serving a prison sentence for the rape of a child and unlawful sexual contact with a minor. Juan Ramon Vasquez has now pleaded guilty to illegally reentering the country after being deported, the Department of Justice announced Tuesday.

Vasquez was initially deported after illegally immigrating to the U.S. from Honduras in 2009. Immigration and Customs Enforcement realized he was back in the U.S. illegally in 2014, in a Philadelphia prison, and asked the city to turn him over to federal custody. The city released him instead, and he went on to commit the crimes he is now back in prison for.

It is incredible to me that an American city would rather release a violent felon than be seen as supporting federal law with which they disagree. It is a shining example of the the inexorable shift toward violence and mayhem and murder on the part of the Left.

Tree-rings prove climate was WARMER in Roman and Medieval times than it is now - and world has been cooling for 2,000 years
How did the Romans grow grapes in northern England? Perhaps because it was warmer than we thought.

A study suggests the Britain of 2,000 years ago experienced a lengthy period of hotter summers than today.


"Perhaps?" What the fvck else could it be? That they had a large system of greenhouses and were heating them with nuclear energy?

Dudes...Occam's Razor says you are stupid for using the word "perhaps."

9 Damn willowed on my Magnum P.I. post. For what it's worth:

The best Magnum P.I. episode was a two parter. An Asian assassin. similar looking to the James Bond guy, would kill people with single blow that was so fast that even if they had him at gun point he was able to do it. He did this to TC but miraculously survived and was able to tell Magnum that the guy blinked his eyes right before he threw his punch. He finally finds Magnum and they have brief fight in which he has Magnum on his back on top of him. Magnum was able to pull his gun and had it pointed at the guy's head. The guy smiles and blinks his eyes and Magnum fires. End scene , program over.

11 the farm they found under ice in Greenland shows that it was warmer before ... it really was a Green Land for a couple hundred years.

For several years the AGW liars claimed that was just some localized event ... they finally (iirc) admitted it is real. Nothing ever stops their agenda ... Mann gets caught talking of hiding evidence ... lies lies lies ... they get caught ... as with the Mueller coup, facts don't matter even when they are caught lying repeatedly.

I think it's different than that (though I haven't been to Israel in a long time now).

38 Correction sfrom yesterday's prayer list:

Prayer List Correction-

Yesterday I attributed a name for a need to the wrong poster. Iiam so sorry. and apologize. Fortunately God knows everybody's name even when the coordinator of the prayer list gets confused. This is the correct situation and needs of Lurking Phineas:

News. I start the 8 weeks of radiation tomorrow (Today). Recent conversation with the Doc confirms we are beating the cancer up with the hormone therapy, and that the radiation is to kill it. Although the hormone therapy will continue for 18 months to two years, he expects a cure. It got dusty for a few.

My employer has finally brought in a replacement and I am going on disability pay for 2-4 months. I am transferring knowledge and authority for the next week, and then I will be totally focused on the healing.All in all, very good news. I blame the fervent prayers of believer.


Please continue to pray for Lurking Phineas. Thanks


Another Prayer List correction:

(I listed Mr Feverhead's concerns are those of Lurking Phineas). Sorry to both of them
These are the current needs of "Mr Feverhead":

Was getting a port for cancer treatments July 2nd. Starts chemo for 6 months. Also, needs positive resolution in divorce for best results for family. Appreciates prayers from everyone.

43 I have never fully understood the lack of cohesion between Jews, Protestants and Catholics.

I mean I guess I get to some degree why Jews don't acknowledge Christians, as they don't recognize the primacy of Christ and the NT.

But in the other direction, Christians should fully acknowledge the significance of Jews in relation to the Creator.

50 Hamas rocket attack on Israel.

It seems related, somehow, but Iran threatens the US because Trump! But Iran doesn't attack the US. Instead, Hamas attacks Israel.

It seems to be a variation of 'buy my book or my pr agent will kill the puppy'.

Then there is the tiff between Canada and Saudi Arabia. If only we in the US could do what Canada did and get the Saudis out of the US. Instead, reading the news about the Canada/Saudi spat, the Saudi's are pulling their people/money/assets out of Canada and moving them to the US and UK.

The UK doesn't need'm, and we don't want'm.

I don't know how his blog was setup or how Disques integrates so unless there is some backup mechanism, years worth of commentary has been dissapeared.


The communication utilities, and that's what they are, need to be regulated as utilities and public accommodations.


And now all these media companies are putting pressure on twitter to remove Jones presence there even though twitter says he has not violated any TOS.

80 the article is about a 30 year period 21 to 50 AD, and say it was one degree Centigrade warmer than now.

I gave up on bothering with studying the AGW BS, because not matter how much fraud is revealed, ThePowers stick with their storyline, and denounce ClimateDeniers. But that is a fairly short period, and at least with the Pacific, ocean patterns have a fairly large influence on 10-15 year patterns.

The news is that the Daily Mail covers it in serious fashion. Maybe the media mafia is cracking ... the real crack would be if they report the Mueller/Clinton mafia are the ones that colluded with Russia, and used the FBI to run a coup.

Well there are different sorts of hate. Much of Europe hates the USA but the form of hate is jealousy, humiliation, and revulsion at how gauche and un-European the USA is. They love our money and our umbrella of protection over them. They love how America props up their states so they can have cradle to grave government protection. They love American medical advances and technological innovations. They love the internet and American movies.

Posted by: Joe Mannix (Not a cop!) at August 09, 2018 11:10 AM (I2dne)

Medieval European lords with champagne tastes and a beer tax base would routinely get in debt to Jewish money lenders--Jewish, because there was a Christian prohibition against usury and money lending so Jews filled that economic niche since they had been pushed out of other occupations by oppressive laws. So it would go:

1. Live more lavishly (and go to war more often) than your tax base can support

2. Raise taxes.

3. Peasants revolt.

4. Lower taxes, get a loan from the Jewish banker.

5. Party hearty! Invade your neighbor!

6. Wake up with a hangover and realize that the treasury is empty and the Jewish banker is politely asking for his interest payment.

7. Lead a pogrom against the filthy Jewish banker, which will erase both your debt and that of your soldiers, who also have eyes bigger than their resources.

8. Go back to step 1.

164 Let's face some facts. Israel is scared (and probably very reluctant) to apply what needs to be applied to the Palestinians and that is a lot of death and not waiting for them to start shooting first but to actually start winnowing out the real firebrands.

Notice that not too many Palestinians went to Irag or Iran Or even Syria. No they're gutless and are quite comfortable fighting an enemy that is afraid to kick their ass.

Israel is scared as they don't want the genocide label applied to them and thus their reluctance.

Interestingly enough the fake reason the Nazis wanted to do away with the Jews is the reason Israel needs to do away with the Palestinians.

Now I think they can avoid ovens and camps and such but they really need to get over this idea that they can eventually have peace with these guys.

AIN'T. GONNA. HAPPEN. It's going on 70 years now and no sign of letup.

They put up a wall and they bend over backward to legitimize a bunch of liars and thieves. I say bit the bullet (or actually let the palis bite a few) and just get er done.

6. Wake up with a hangover and realize that the treasury is empty and the Jewish banker is politely asking for his interest payment.

7. Lead a pogrom against the filthy Jewish banker, which will erase both your debt and that of your soldiers, who also have eyes bigger than their resources.

The Syrians decided to escalate by drawing Israel into the fray. In just a few hours the israeli air forces put 96 per cent of the Syrian Air Force in the ground. Other 4 per cent couldnt get off the ground. IAF was flying A4 and F4 airframes against so called superior Soviet airframes. The sudden stop of a commie radar was quite pleasing. Leaving out lots of details for posting sake, but when the Israelis conduct their bidness, bidness is good.

I wanted to learn more about Germany having never been there myself. He proceeded to tell me:"Northern Germany - mostly Protestant, jah? Southern Germany -mostly Catholic, jah? But no joos. We have no more joos!".

Is that obscene for some reason?
I would assume the sheer size of a mega church would demand something more professional than the typical voluntary church coffee hour (and I have volunteered for that for years at my church, including baking cookies). Much easier than trying to maintain voluntary staff to serve hundreds/thousands each service.

But there have been 163 Jewish Nobel Prize winners since 1901, and one arab: Yassr Arafat. And we all know what that was worth. I mean, people try to expand this and say 12 Muslims won, but only one was Arabic. The closest next one is Iranian (Persian).

One of my fondest memories is of monitoring the electromagnetic spectrum
off the coast of Beirut in the summer of 82, we had marines ashore as
part of the multinational peacekeeping force, mostly buffering the
belligerents from the Christians. The Syrians decided to escalate by
drawing Israel into the fray. In just a few hours the israeli air
forces put 96 per cent of the Syrian Air Force in the ground. Other 4
per cent couldnt get off the ground. IAF was flying A4 and F4 airframes
against so called superior Soviet airframes. The sudden stop of a
commie radar was quite pleasing. Leaving out lots of details for
posting sake, but when the Israelis conduct their bidness, bidness is
good.

231 What answer would people give to the statement that it's European socialism (specifically that practiced in Scandanavia) that should be the model which is the comment I always get when I try to critique Socialism.

------

1.) It hasn't been working well for awhile now, though it did used to kind of trundle along, because:

2.) The populations are much smaller than in real countries; and,

3.) Those populations are quite homogenous in terms of ethnicity, class, etc., and have been for centuries. Scoialism didn't shatter their social order.

Levelling only seems to work when things were already pretty level, and even then it really sucks.

What major exports do these countries have? Where are there armies? What is their notable cultural output? Why do they need their economies floated by central banks in foreign countries?

It's when you start answering these questions, that you realize Scandinavia isn't composed of real countries - they're toy countries.

I think they probably meet their needs. The main purpose of the pastor is to preach or teach. Big churches often have a large staff of people handling different areas and they train lay people to do caring ministries in small groups. I don't know what qualifies a church as "mega church".

-
The Looking West From Red Square link on the Morning Report deals with how the average Russki views Americans and finds that although hating America is government sponsered cool there, much of the anti-Americanism is only skin deep and for show. I suspect that many Russkies and other Yurps view America much the way I view them, as a mixed bag. Partly good, partly bad, partly smart, and partly stupid. Or, as Kris Kristofferson sang:

I traveled a great deal as well, and it's not my experience, either, which indicated that Europeans tend to consider Americans as dull-witted bumpkins who somehow, inexplicably, ended up in the catbird seat politically, militarily, culturally, and economically, but who are slowly gaining the wisdom of adopting socialist policies to moderate their long-standing economic savagery.

The Brits seems to view us with a mixture of pride and disdain, much like the son who grows up to outshine the father, who is not entirely pleased by the development.

The French hate us because we're not French, and have pushed them off center stage in the world, which they consider their natural place in the order of things.

The Germans are relatively well-disposed towards us. Yes, they denigrate conservative American politicians (almost an article of faith in Europe), but on a personal level they seem well-disposed.

Japanese have a certain respect for us - largely by virtue of having kicked their asses when they thought they were pretty hot stuff - but have an unfortunate tendency toward sanctimony re Hiroshima and Nagasaki. (But they don't talk about - and many do not know about - Nanking or Group 731 atrocities.)

Koreans, for their part, look down on and hate everyone, as near as I can tell. Commie propaganda has worked its magic on them, as they seem somehow to blame us for the dead in the Korean War, as if it weren't started by ... Koreans.

All of the above are merely personal anecdotal observations, of course, and may be entirely rubbish.

283 >>Jack, an even more impertinent question would be "who was running the NSA and CIA at that time?"

Also an interesting question.

The reason I ask which of those two was running the FBI is the different way things were handled for Feinstein and Trump.

In both cases it was a potential counterintelligence operation. In Feinstein's case, the FBI alerted her to the spy and for some reason, I know, I know, the spy was allowed to retire. In Trump's case he was not told and a full blown counterintelligence operation was started against people in his campaign.

And either Mueller or Comey or both was involved in both those decisions and operations. Seems awfully coincidental that this was kept hidden for 5 years and is just now coming to light.

Saddam bussed them over to airfields, Army barracks, AAA emplacements, munitions depots. And for some reason, they freaked out, made a couple of brief press statements and hopped the first available flight to anywhere that the USAF wasn't planning to turn into a grease spot.

Clearly other governments are in on TheGame, China/Russia/Pakistan ... not to mention the FiveEyes and contractors that had eyes on our deepest secret spy programs.

TheMarket is now the keystone, and globalists were deemed (by whom?) to be 2Big2Fail/Jail. Twenty (or so) InternationalBanks have demanded their own laws are above our silly sovereign laws (and that is why HSBC skated when caught launder a couple billion of drug cartel money. (and how much more was not caught?)
On paper ... private billionaires and trillionaires (said in Bernie voice) ... they own/control almost everything, and they aren't just Americans. They've been printing "money", whether through banks or via stock/bond certificates. And most of America has their retirement tied to those leveraged money schemes.

Tricky Business to get out of it in one piece, but bringing a lot of industry back to America is a good start. "Lock Them Up" would seem a necessary follow up. tick tock the mouse ran up the clock ... and he's shitting on everything.

481 I forget who it was... some industrialist. He said that the best ROI you'll ever get in politics is a freshman Representative.

The races are really cheap by comparison to most, so if you get in on the ground floor with a candidate who is replacing a retiree, or successfully primarying an incumbent, you can get out for a few hundred grand.

Then, with the incumbent-re-election rate for Representatives being really good, and the potential for moving to the Senate or a Governor's Mansion, you own a vote (or more) for life.

That's laugh-out-loud ridiculous. Israel has a very capable military. Someone wanting to attack Israel and take its territory would have their work cut out for them.

But, Israel conquering and occupying any part of Europe would be much more than they could handle. They simply don't have the manpower or the wherewithal to extend themselves that far beyond their own territory. They do have nukes, but so do multiple European countries.

Any attempt by Israel to try such a thing would lead to ruin, but of course, they are smart enough to know just how suicidal it would be.
