Whoopee - Joe's found another war!

“Iraq was yesterday's war. Afghanistan is today's war. If we don't act pre-emptively, Yemen will be tomorrow's war"
Yes folks, Smokin’ Joe Lieberman is on the warpath yet again. Like all the rest of the Vietnam-dodging chicken hawks he’s always full of fight. Providing he or his aren't doing the fighting.

The minute I read of the Nigerian Islamic plane burning incident I knew that the US ‘defence’ industry would see an opportunity. Not an opportunity to do anything about the real dangers of course, but an opportunity to launch another war that will use lots and lots of weapons and provide lots and lots of business for the Blackwaters and Halliburtons of this world.

Just what the US needs.... heading towards bankruptcy, embroiled in two unwinnable wars and an earlier humiliating in Somalia – all enthusiastically supported by Joe. But then – to me at least - US needs aren't paramount in his mind. He, with his dual American/Israeli citizenship, holds the unique position of being in effect Likud’s ambassador to the US while heading the Senate Committee on Homeland Security. ..
How daft does it get?
Fact is, America is bleeding blood and treasure, as it always has done, to fight Israel’s enemies in the Middle East. Don’t forget that Lieberman is also an enthusiastic supporter of using American men and money to attack Iran as well.

Lieberman is the best politician that money can buy. He’s paid his dues by emasculating the health bill (no bad thing in itself, pity about the motivation) at the behest of his (and his wife’s) paymasters in the health industry. And now he’s taking his marching orders from his political masters in Tel Aviv.

He’s laughing all the way to the bank.

He doesn’t worry. And he’s right. It’s probable that the American sheeple can be bamboozledyet again by the MSM into flying the flag and supporting this war, just like they were on all the others.

I'm convinced that in a hundred years time – if the Neocons’ wars haven’t finished us all of by then, that historians will look back and ask, in total bewilderment, how did the American people allow themselves to be so blatantly manipulated to enthusiastically participate in their own demise?

An afterthought: If the chickenhawk Neocons really want to fuck up Yemen, why don’t they deport all their Wall St. paymasters there? If they did a tenth of the damage they’ve done to the US they’d be better than a hundred conventional armies.

The solution to Affirmative Action?

Those of us who’ve opposed affirmative action have focused on its inherent unfairness and impracticality in favouring less capable/qualified people. Essentially it means showing that favouring lower qualified ‘minorities’ over white males resulted in wasted resources, reduced performance and low levels of achievement wherever it was applied, as well as being self-evidently unfair.

The Hartford fire-fighters was typical case. Would someone of lower intelligence with less inclination to work be better positioned to make crucial on-the-spot decisions such as what length hose or what power pump? Of course showing this to be both inequitable and inefficient was as easy as shooting fish in a barrel.

But it made no difference, the madness persists.

But what if we turned the whole debate on its head? What if, instead of focusing on the under-representation of under-achieving ethnic groups, we shifted the debate to the over-representation of certain ethnic groups?

Now there’s no prize for guessing which ethnic group is massively over-represented just about everywhere, business, politics, law, medicine, academia, science – everywhere except sport. Now it’s clear to me that this over-representation is due to the same factors that cause black under-representation – intelligence and work ethic (throw in a bit of ethnic solidarity as well, of course).

The supreme irony here of course is that Jews are, and always have been, at the forefront of the AA army. Replace evil white males with under-represented minorities (read blacks). But what if Jews, think the NY Times, were asked to lead by example?

What if the next time a Jewish commentator or academic insisted on more non-white representation the response were to be ‘fine. But will you step aside and while doing so agree to reduce Jews’ representation in the Senate to two Senators, have Jews represent only 2% of Harvard’s next intake, and occupy a similar ratio on the NYT editorial board?’

Needless to say it wouldn’t work in the sense that there’d be no significant change in the ratios. But it might result in Jews shifting uncomfortably in their seats and realising that this thing could cut both ways. And the one thing you can never accuse Jews of is being unrealistic!

The new Surgeon General

You’re looking to appoint the Surgeon General – the top Government medical post in the US. Where do you look for a suitable candidate, one capable of inspiring a new generation of medical break-throughs? The Mayo Clinic? Harvard Medical School?

Or an obscure backwoods practice lost somewhere in a Louisiana swamp?

If you’re part of Obama’s ‘colour-blind’ Administration, you’d go for the last option. Why? Because it’s one of the few places you’ll find a black physician. And being black seems to be the one and only qualification that Dr. Regina Benjamin – a 20 stone mountain of fat - seems to have.
Admittedly she ‘graduated’ from one of the country’s handful of black medical schools. These ‘graduates’ are so poorly qualified that almost all end up in administrative roles on the government payroll. In those instances where they are let loose on the general public the results can be literally life-threatening, as in the case of the Martin Luther King Hospital in Los Angeles which had to be closed down to protect the public.

With such a background you’d hardly expect her to announce some stunning innovative thinking in her maiden speech. And she didn’t disappoint.

“In what was one of her first speeches to a large crowd since she was sworn in Nov. 3, Dr. Regina Benjamin noted that the proportion of U.S. physicians who are minorities is only 6 percent—the same proportion as a century ago.

In a 27-minute speech, Benjamin told health leaders in the audience to encourage young minorities to pursue careers in medicine or other ambitions.”

That's right folks, she spent nearly half an hour whingeing that ‘minorities’ (read blacks – there are huge numbers of Asian doctors in the US) are under-represented. ‘It be racism’, I presume was her message.
Blacks have a big problem in graduating from proper medical schools because, with their lower IQ levels they can't handle the academic workload. It’s as simple as that. Wherever you see black PhDs you’ll note that they’re invariably in the soft subjects like ebonics, black history, languages, racism reparation studies or other crap like that. And that's so because faculty in those fields, being culturally sensitive, can award the highest degrees, secure in the knowledge that it doesn’t matter and that nobody really gives a shit anyway.

However, in science, engineering and medicine there’s usually only one right answer. And that's where blacks come unstuck. According to two of my friends who are doctors in the US, reputable medical schools there did try to push through unqualified blacks a few decades ago – at the expense of whites, of course. However, they failed their internships in droves, which then (happily) reflected back on the medical school faculty.
Presumably then the new SG will be pleased with another medical initiative from the colour-blind Obama Administration. Thanks to Rastus for this link to the National Review)

“It directs the secretary of health and human services to award federal grants worth billions of dollars to educational institutions that train medical-service providers. However, “priority” for federal dollars is to be given only to those institutions offering “preferential” admissions to underrepresented minorities”

The measure will force medical institutions to hire based on race and sex, not qualifications, and to lower their admission standards, which will lead to even more “low-quality” doctors. Medical students admitted based on lower qualifications generally perform more poorly on licensing exams.Race-based admissions end up endangering patients — such as those treated by Patrick Chavis, one of whom bled to death due to Chavis’s medical malpractice.

Chavis was the black applicant admitted to the University of California at Davis Medical School even though he had much weaker academic qualifications than Allan Bakke, a white applicant who was rejected from the school and subsequently was the plaintiff in a famous Supreme Court case. Chavis eventually lost his medical license because of his gross negligence, incompetence, and “inability to perform some of the most basic duties required of a physician.”

By the way, in 1996 (before Chavis was found out), Senator Edward M. Kennedy called him a "perfect example" of how affirmative action worked.

Boy, Ted got a lot of things wrong, but he sure struck paydirt with that!

As the song goes, ‘when will they ever learn’. Why don't white Americans rise up in righteous indignation?

Diversity is strength: It's also burying sick children alive

There was a time when the concept of cultural relativism added some value. For centuries we’d been hamstrung by supposedly God-inspired moral absolutism which allowed self-appointed moral guardians rule our lives with rods of iron. Such absolutism was moderated in more recent times by concepts such as situational ethics (right or wrong is based on the particular situation) and cognitive relativism (truth itself has no objective standard).

Cultural relativism is the view that no culture is superior to any other culture when comparing systems of morality, law, politics, etc. It's the philosophical notion that all cultural beliefs are equally valid and that truth itself is relative, depending on the cultural environment. Those who hold to cultural relativism hold that all religious, ethical, aesthetic, and political beliefs are completely relative to the individual within a cultural identity.

But just like other initially worthwhile elements of multi-culti peecee doctrine, the (small) baby of cultural relativism has not so much been thrown out with the bathwater but rammed down the plughole with great force. We’re now at the stage where the most noxious primitive customs are accorded moral and cultural equivalence with those of the advanced western democracies.

Here I have in mind things like honour killings, stoning for adultery, killing children for their organs for use in traditional medicine, all of which we’re meant to sympathetically nod in understanding - ‘it’s their culture’.

Now the video here shows scenes which could – or at least should – occasion even the most deluded sociology professor to get a grip.

Here’s what the Telegraph has to say about the practice in general:

"Babies born into some Indian tribes in the Amazon are being buried alive, a practice that is being covered up by the Brazilian authorities out of respect for tribal culture [there we go again!] The tradition is based on beliefs that babies with any sort of physical defect have no souls and that others, such as twins or triplets, are also "cursed". Babies who are girls, who have some disability or who have unmarried mothers are all in danger of an early death in a shallow grave in the rainforest."

If you can stomach it, take a look, and thank Providence if you live in an advanced, tolerant and civilised society. And maybe as a bonus it’ll build your determination to hold on to what we have and fight back against the invasion of our lands by the forces of darkness

Having Mum for dinner

Apropos the previous post........

Here's a comment on this post from W. Baker. Really good:

"That's a funny - and, yet, serious picture, Savant. Let's just say, for the sake of argument, that it wasn't Photoshopped, and that it was a holiday snap of some stupid slag from the Midlands on a 'eco' trip.She's in the Amazon obviously thinking that Christian - or post-Christian - mores tolerate nude sunbathing; and her diversity training since nursery school assures her that the natives are gentle souls with a penchant for loin clothes and really cool body paint....

It's never crossed the poor gal's mind that Piranha and Candiru aren't very good for your health.That's the West in a picture: oblivious to the reality of barbaric, non-christian cultures who generally hold women in the same regard as they hold dogs or goats, and, yet thinking the complete opposite."

Diversity is strength: It's also eating monkeys

Discretely hidden away in a remote corner of the Irish Times we learn the following:

"A parcel containing monkey meat was discovered at a postal sorting office in Drogheda yesterday, the Department of Agriculture said. The package was understood to have contained the bodies of two monkeys and a number of monkey legs which were to be eaten. Customs officials are investigating and it is believed the package may have been sent from Nigeria. A department spokeswoman said the "bush meat" had been seized as it had entered the country illegally. "
Bless me! Nigerians behaving illegally! What ever next?

My scientific friends tell me that such bush meat is potentially lethal, as it can introduce bacteria and viruses (it's the source of the ebola virus and possible of AIDS) to which native Irish would have no immunity. And if all the Irish died, who’d pay the Nigerians’ social welfare? I think they should remember that.

But such imports can be found wherever we celebrate diversity. Take this story from the US.

"A federal judge took mercy on a Staten Island mother of eight [she has three more, apparently not here own. But who knows?] and sentenced her Friday to probation for smuggling monkey meat into New York.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Jonathan Green argued that Mamie Manneh was not entitled to leniency because she has 11 prior arrests—including one for running over her husband’s suspected mistress with an SUV—and cooked up a bogus defense that she had a constitutional right to eat bushmeat. "

As you can see from the photo, Mamie is a one-woman production line for future muggers and rapists.
Which begs the question, if she had 11 previous offences, how much time did she serve, given that she’s cranked out so many cultural enrichers in the meantime? Probably got 11 warnings. After all, maybe it’s their culture to take out mistresses as well, and we can't deny cultural relativism, can we?

Sense from Bill Cosby

I've said repeatedly that it takes a black person to talk sense to, not just blacks, but even more importantly to realign the white 'useful idiots' on e a reality-based path. Here's real wisdom from Bill Cosby, which should be posted in two-foot high letters in every social welfare centre and school.
"I can't even talk the way these people talk:

Why you ain't, Where you is, What he drive, Where he stay, Where he work, Who you be......
And I blamed the kid until I heard the mother talk. And then I heard the father talk. Everybody knows it's important to speak English except these knuckleheads.
You can't be a doctor with that kind of crap coming out of your mouthIn fact you will never get any kind of job making a decent living. People marched and were hit in the face with rocks to get an Education, and now we've got these knuckleheads walking around.

The lower economic people are not holding up their end in this deal. These people are not parenting. They are buying things for kids. $500 sneakers for what? And they won't spend $200 for Hooked on Phonics.
I am talking about these people who cry when their son is standing there in an orange suit. Where were you when he was 2? Where were you when he was 12? Where were you when he was 18 and how come you didn't know that he had a pistol? And where is the father? Or who is his father?

People putting their clothes on backward: Isn't that a sign of something gone wrong? People with their hats on backward, pants down around the crack, isn't that a sign of something? Isn't it a sign of something when she has her dress all the way up and got all type of needles [piercing] going through her body?
What part of Africa did this come from?? We are not Africans. Those people are not Africans; they don't know a thing about Africa .....

With names like Shaniqua, Taliqua and Mohammed and all of that crap ......... and all of them are in jail. Brown or black versus the Board of Education is no longer the white person's problem. We have got to take the neighborhood back.

People used to be ashamed. Today a woman has eight children with eight different 'husbands' -- or men or whatever you call them now. We have millionaire football players who cannot read. We have million-dollar basketball players who can't write two paragraphs.
We, as black folks have to do a better job.. Someone working at Wal-Mart with seven kids, you are hurting us. We have to start holding each other to a higher standard.We cannot blame the white people any longer.'

The good ole' days

"When I were a lad, Granny would send me down to t'corner store wi' a shilling....and that's only 5 pence in today's money

three pints o' milk,

a pound o' cheese,

a packet o' tea,

an' 'alf a dozen eggs.

Yer can't do that these days....No way!...

Too many damn security cameras around now."

If there were only whites in South Africa.....

Interesting post in MySASucks blog.

Key excerpts:

We would be able to boast one of the lowest crime-rates in the world, as our whites here commit almost no crime.

Due to the above sentence, a lot less money would be spent on prisons and police so it would go to other things.

Our economy would still be in the top 30

We wouldn’t have to spend every cent we have on expensive houses in secure estates

We wouldn’t be forced to immigrate from what can be a beautiful country

Our rugby team would be unstoppable as useless quota players wouldn’t make it – and no, Habana’s not that good

We could hire excellent people to help run our business, instead of some thief who will steal from you and ruin your business

We could take lovely strolls through town, admiring the scenery and the shops

Kids could go to public school without the stress of being beaten or killed for nothing (whites don’t beat up people who haven’t done anything to them)

Our president would be able to talk properly and wouldn’t embarrass us

We would have great doctors and a well-structured healthcare system

Electricity would be consistently available and affordable as the coal wouldn’t be purchased from BEE companies

We would be considered a 1st world country

Innocent white girls wouldn’t be getting AIDS because they got raped

Food would be more affordable

We wouldn’t have to have anxiety attacks when stopped at a robot

Those 3083 white farmers would still be here

We wouldn’t be startled by every noise we hear at night

Now I could add that whites would also have to do all their own dirty work. But otherwise what's said here is correct. Whereas individual blacks can be fine, as an ethnic group they are always and everywhere vastly more violent and welfare-dependent than other races. Their criminality is orders of magnitude greater than whites, while their families have high levels of disfunctionality. In short, wherever and whenever they move in, standards begin to decline, and that decline then increases geometrically.

We should remember that as we allow vast numbers of them congregate in Europe

Open discussion in Sweden

The Local describes itself as ‘Sweden’s News In English’. Which it is. And just like the rest of the media in that country it’s relentlessly Orwellian in its reporting, as dictated by the Orwellian ‘independent journalists’ union – see this post. If you read it (I don't recommend this!) you’ll see an endless paean to the joys of diversity, and never ever, ever anything that would suggest immigrants aren't all uncanonised saints.

But Sweden's proud position at the top of Europe’s Rape League Table, and the distinctly un-Swedish habits of Muslim refugees do pose some challenges for The Local’s ‘journalists’. For example, what’s an ‘independent journalist’ to do when a Muslim takes a fourth simultaneous wife, this time one that's ten years old, and then cuts his daughter’s throat for wearing a revealing burka?

Well, it goes something like this: “Swedish man charged with attack on daughter’. To the uninitiated, this could be someone named Sven Carlson giving his daughter a black eye. And of course that’s what you're meant to believe.

But Swedes are starting to act like their counterparts under another totalitarian system, Communism. (Check my post here). If a Russian read in Pravda ‘Comrade Brezhnev is suffering from a mild cold’ they’d have instantly realised that he was at death’s door. So Swedes now are beginning to realise immediately that the ‘Swedish man’ is nothing of the sort.

Anyway, I occasionally post a comment to The Local. Nothing ‘offensive’ (i.e. nothing even remotely like the ‘n’ word, no bad language, just skewering the ludicrous claptrap that passes for journalism on that rag). What happens? After fewer than ten such comments I've been silenced!

If I try to comment George Orwell comes back with “Posting privileges currently suspended”. It’s not currently, it’s permanently.

Yes folks, that's what passes for the marketplace of ideas in the Swedish media.

However, following on the Swiss minarets initiative, there is hope. Even in Sweden. It seems a Muslim cultural enricher decided that due to Islamic modesty she didn’t want to be bothered with Swedish hygiene regulations. She sued the agency for refusing her a job. Now you’d imagine that the dhimmi courts in that country would fall over themselves to apologise for the ‘offense’ and to order the dental agency to desist.

Hold on to something solid now, because…………..the court threw out her case. And not only that, they awarded costs against her!

I wonder did the judge read my comments in The Local?

Go Switzerland!

Bravo Switzerland! By an overwhelming majority they have shown what they think of the Islamisation of their country. Inevitably the howls from the peecee multi-culti fever swamps have been loud and painful.

All the usual suspects weighed in. The UN, the EU, Amnesty International, the Red Cross, even the Catholic Church, doing anything to divert attention from its history of raping children. To listen to them you’d think the Swiss had reopened Auschwitz, and were busy rounding up the country’s Muslim population.

What has gone totally unremarked is the fundamental issue of reciprocity: Christians can't even repair a church in most Islamic countries. As I showed in this post, even surreptitiously practicing your Christian faith in Saudi Arabia can lead to arrest and imprisonment. Why don't those organisations squeal about that?

Oh, I forgot. The Saudis aren’t white Christians.

What's nothing short of hilarious is the complaint about the vote not being ‘democratic’. I kid you not – this has been said. It’s so democratic that the EU mandarins must be having sleepless nights. My God, what would happen if this democracy broke out everywhere? Certainly, if Switzerland had been in the EU they’d have been brought swiftly to heel

Moving on, does this signal a significant change or just a last futile gasp? Let’s listen to Farhad Afshar, who heads the Coordination of Islamic Organisations in Switzerland. He bleats “the most painful for us is not the minaret ban, but the symbol sent by this vote. Muslims do not feel accepted as a religious community”

To which I'd respond, ‘I certainly hope so’

That malevolent, duplicitous, terror-supporting hypocrite Tariq Ramadan has been given a prominent platform in the Guardian (where else?) to declaim:

"What is happening in Switzerland, the land of my birth?”

It might be the land of your birth you prick, but it’s not your country. To paraphrase Lord Wellington, being born in a stable doesn’t make you a horse. In this case it did make Ramadan a horse – a Trojan one. Like most other Muslims in the West, he’s used our liberal secular laws to secure religious freedom and support, the very things denied to Christians and Jews in Muslim countries.

He goes on “the Swiss majority are sending a clear message to their Muslim fellow citizens: we do not trust you and the best Muslim for us is the Muslim we cannot see.”

If so, I rejoice. And it should be the start of a campaign along the following lines:

Ban the burka, niqab, the veil in work places and also halal slaughter. Make building a mosque as difficult as it is to build a church in Saudi Arabia. Make Islam and the ‘Prophet’ a subject of humour as happens with other religions and their icons.

If we initiated and maintained such a campaign it would make Europe a ‘cold place’ for Muslims. And that in turn would make them less likely to come here, or if they still do, make them realise that they have to live by civilised Western standards.

Fingers crossed. And meanwhile, where can I load up on Swiss chocolates?

La Cosa Nostra

As every schoolboy knows, la Cosa Nostra means ‘our thing' in Italian and refers to the Mafia’s name for itself. It’s also the name Frank Keating, a former Oklahoma Governor, applied to the Catholic Church, based on his experiences of heading a so-called investigation into child abuse in the US.

"To act like La Cosa Nostra and hide and suppress, I think, is very unhealthy," he declaimed, when he realized that he was heading a cover-up, not an investigation. And for this he got turfed out by the Church authorities.

There’s no point in my going over this scandal, which is a world-wide phenomenon. But I would like you to consider just one aspect of the Irish Church’s response which underlines what I already knew anyway: that there is simply no morality within that organization. It’s just like a multinational corporation, except that it pays no tax at all.

Just consider the concept of ‘mental reservation’. According to Cardinal Desmond Connell, ‘one must never lie, but on the other hand you may be put in a position where you have to answer and there may be circumstances where you can use an ambiguous expression, realizing that the person whom you are talking to will accept an untrue version of whatever it may be’.

Thus he was able to say that ‘I never paid’ any victim of clerical abuse. True, but he gave the money to the abuser, who then paid the victim. Totally convincing, isn't it?
Take another example. When Bishop Comiskey was outed by journalist Veronica Guerin as receiving treatment for alcoholism at a particulate clinic in Florida, it emerged that Comiskey had never even been to that clinic.

Cue outraged reaction from Church spokesmen, who complained bitterly, inter alia, of the ‘hurt’ Comiskey had suffered, the denigration of his character and so on. However, it subsequently emerged that in fact he had been receiving alcoholism treatment at that time, but at a different clinic just a few miles away.

What this illustrates to me is the difference between morality and religiosity ( is there such a word?). These people, as I said at the beginning, are just amoral. And they’re our moral guides.

Pass the sick bag.

China and blacks in the MSM

Are you interested in the films I watch? Of course not. But bear with me, I'm going somewhere with this. While sick in bed for a few days in Sweden recently I spent some time watching the only English-language film channel available in my apartment. I watched five, and I’ll describe four of them.

First, ‘A dry white season’. This was about the struggle for ‘freedom’ in South Africa and was the usual cut-and-paste story line and cutout characters. All whites (apart from one) being vile racists, all blacks noble, honourable and decent. Even the one who shoots dead a policeman outside his home. To give this the right perspective, we were treated to a montage of scenes from ‘the legacy of apartheid’ before he was gunned down.

Then there was ‘Rosewood’. This again featured exclusively vile Southern whites and exclusively noble, honest, hard-working put-upon blacks. Without exception.

Ok, move on to what looked to be a very promising concept. ‘Diplomatic Immunity’ had as its theme the rape and murder of a young American girl by a foreigner, who escaped back to his homeland luxurious lifestyle because he was covered by the eponymous diplomatic immunity. Cue for the outraged father of the victim to take things into his own hands.

But the producers were faced with a problem. The rapist/murderer had of necessity to be white, but problem was, those pesky white countries have this annoying habit of putting such people on trial back home, diplomatic immunity or no, or in surrendering immunity.

What’s a peecee multiculti director to do? Eureka! Paraguay! Kill about three birds with the one stone. Not just white, but (roll on the bass drum) Germans! Nazis. They came to Paraguay and siezed power. When our hero gets there he wipes out every single, blonde, cold-eyed killer. And goes back to report, informally to his kind, understanding Commanding Officer – who is, you’ve guessed it, black.

I was getting fed up at this stage when I came to my last one. Girl being raped by evil whites. Only to be rescued by - wait for it – a black gang! Which is about as realistic as Darth Vader togging out in midfield for Scunthorpe United. Seeking something more realistic I turned to ‘Lord of the rings’…

My point, in case you’re slow on the uptake, is that blacks are uniformly portrayed in the MSM and ‘Hollywood’ in a way that’s totally at variance with reality. But we know that, sez you, you’ve repeatedly posted about it.

Yes, and that brings me to China. As I posted in ‘China taking over Africa, now watch the fun’ the Chinese are amongst the worst racists in the world. They’ll tell you openly and without embarrassment that the whiter the skin the better. And they’re going to be seeing a lot more of their non-white brethren in the future. And, if what’s happening in China itself is anything to go by, the future will fulfil the old Chinese curse ‘may you live in interesting times’.

Here are some excerpts from my ‘research’

“People in China think most black people play basketball and are violent. Many people in China also assume that if you are black, you have very little money’

‘One city resident told the Shanghai Star that "crime is so low in Shanghai because there are no black people."’

“If a Chinese woman dates a white man it is social climbing. If she is with a black man, it is 'stepping down'.

“Although individual black athletes and entertainers are respected and idolized, a “generic” black person is often perceived by Chinese, even well-educated ones, to be dangerous or ignorant.”

“When I asked my Chinese teacher and several friends what they think of black people, almost all of them say the same thing, "They're scary, they smell, they're loud"

“One Chinese journalist told me that she believes black men have an abnormally high sex drive. Her friends believe that one can get AIDS from sleeping with black men.”

“A middle aged Chinese driver "Black people are poor and the men are usually really big and intimidating looking. Sometimes they don't pay."’

“The impression mostly gained from west media is that many blacks are violent, less-educated and lazy. Thanks to a steady diet of Hollywood movies.”

“Unfavourable portrayals of dark-skinned characters in movies is also widely cited as unhelpful.”

Now I draw your attention in particular to the last two comments, neither of which came from Chinese, rather from Western observers. Isn’t it incredible that people can still say things like that? Now if they said that the portrayals of dark-skinned characters in movies is totally at variance with reality we could all agree. Although for contradictory reasons obviously.

The interesting thing though is that, despite the MSM and Hollywood, they’ve managed to get an excellent steer on the realities, haven't they?.

A terrible admission

I must admit it, and, for a mature male, it is a terrible admission. Yes, I actually cried last Wednesday night when the 'Hand Of Gaul' goal went in, and Ireland went out. This then was replaced by a terrible and righteous anger.

But time heals, and the healing was enhanced by the cataract of bullshit that followed. Theirry Henri was castigated as a vile cheat, the Swedish officials were bribed by Sepp Blatter to get the big country through, and the French FA were miserable frogs for not immediately offering us a replay.

What bollocks. In fact I think the French, team and public, came out of it very well. The team were obviously affected by the manner of their qualification, Henri admitted his offence, while he and the rest of the team asked for the game to be replayed. So did nearly 90% of the French general public.

The facts are, Henri did what any footballer would have done, and indeed what Robbie Keane had done a few times previously in that very game! Fact is, the officials bottled it. Had they wanted to usher France through they had earlier had a number of opportunities to award penalties. Given that they had already made these tough calls against France, to actually disallow a late goal - the referee was unsighted - would have demanded exemplary, unique, courage.

Now I ask myself, what would have happened if it had been the other way around? We all know don't we? Token regrets for public consumption, but most of us would have snickered behind our backs and as packed our bullet proof vests for South Africa.

Nobody does wounded outrage like the Irish

Offensive: Now the Jews are at it

Now the Jews are at it. It was bad enough with the Religion of Peace, blacks, women, invalids, all eagerly seeking out opportunities to be offended. I had thought Jews to be beyond that, but a number of developments suggest otherwise.

First up was the Irish tenor Ronan Tynan who said something about some Jewish ladies looking at his apartment were "scary". Most of them are - that's why they’re a standing joke among Jews. You know the old joke about the head waiter going over to a table of female Jewish diners and asking ‘is anything all right?’ This was, or should have been, a non-event. But in a manner disturbingly redolent of the Religion of Peace, Jewish organizations in the US threw their collective bottles out of the pram, kicked and screamed and arranged for Tynan’s concert to be cancelled.

A bemused Tynan was forced to make numerous groveling apologies, and they also shook him down for a substantial ‘donation’ to a Jewish charity.

Then there’s Jimmy Carr who joked about the last entry in Ann Frank’s diary. “Today’s my birthday – daddy bought me a set of drums’. It’s a fucking joke, but again the offence industry went into overdrive as the usual suspects, Hitler, the Holocaust and the death chambers were wheeled out for another airing.

There are also disturbing signs in Israel where these repulsive Orthodox mullahs are trying to out-Islam Islam by enforcing their superstitions on the public at large, and assaulting Palestinian civilians while being protected by Israeli soldiers. And all while they themselves won't serve in said armed forces. Bigoted hypocritical creeps.
Anyway, to all of this I say ‘for fuck sake’. Stop it! Stop it now.

Jews beware! Any more of this and you’ll lose my friendship – a terrible price to pay.

Decisions, decisons........

Africans always complain that they're never consulted about international decisions. Could there be a connection here?

Heathrow: Lunatics firmly in control of the asylum

The mindless futility of bureaucracy as well as the fact that political correctness actually endangers lives, were brought home to me forcefully as I transited through Heathrow today. A few places ahead of me in the security queue was a cultural enricher in full burka rigout. All you could see was two beady eyes glaring through the slit.

I watched with keen interest as she approached the, Lol 'security' checkpoint. By the way, was it a she? Anything could fit under that tent and s/he was about six feet tall. And remember one of the London bombing terrorists escaped to Italy by wearing a burka. God, how he must have laughed at our stupidity.

Anyway, ahead of her was this vision – beautiful tall blonde girl. She had to remove her jacked, boots and belt before going through the machine. Burka-man removed nothing. Now that contrasting approach to security in itself indicates lunacy. But it gets better.

Burka-man, unsurprisingly, set off the alarm. She was stopped to be manually searched (by a woman of course). I was at the other line so couldn’t quite hear what was going on, but s/he and her ‘husband’ objected strenuously. The shemozzle went on for a while, holding all the others up.

I stood around to watch. After a while a compromise was reached. S/he was subjected to a perfunctory ‘search’ – really no more than a gentle wave in the vicinity of the burka. That was it.

But it gets better still. We then went to passport control. Up goes burka-man, enclosed in a tent, beady eyes the only visible sign of what lay beneath. The woman takes the passport… and waves burka-man through.

Would you not think, seeing as a terrorist had escaped the country after placing the July bombs in London, that this nonsense would have ceased? Not in this PC-crazed, dhimmi Western excuse for a society.

But, as I mentioned at the beginning, it also underlined the sheer futility of bureaucracy and the mindset of its practitioners. Consider that a fashionably-dressed white girl, self-evidently no security risk whatsoever, was forced to undergo the full panoply of checks, yet a poster child for terrorism was allowed to float through virtually unchecked. But the bureaucrats did what bureaucrats do.

Truly, the lunatics run the asylum.

In any event, as I posted here, this whole airport security industry is a complete and total waste of time and money.

SAS does a Lazarus - kind of

A new blog, based in the US to elude the Thought Police, at least temporarily, has taken up the mantle of the closed down South Africa Sucks. It needs to be understood that this blog has absolutely no connection with “Why South Africa Sucks”

This site is managed, edited and authored by a completely new group.

Now I've been forecefull taken to task by Dark Raven, one of my favourite posters on the old WSAS blog. She tells me that what I wrote above in red is 'bollocks' and that all the old WSAS crew, with the sad exceptions of Uhuru Guru and Doodler are beavering away like of old.

Thanks DR - I won't offend you again!

Here's the new address of the new site.

Germany plans for the 2010 World Cup

The Germans may not be a bundle of fun, but when it comes to planning they’re tops. No surprise then that BaySecur, who will look after the German Football Federation (DFB) at the 2010 WC in South Africa, warned the stars “to wear bullet-proof vests if they venture away from the team hotel”.

"The possibility for the players of moving outside of the hotel boundaries should be kept to a minimum," BaySecur's Guenter Schnelle told German magazine Sport-Bild . "Otherwise there must be a full escort: armed security guards and bullet-proof vests for the players."
Private bodyguards will protect the players both within and around the hotel.
Hardly a ringing endorsement of the Rainbow Nation, is it?
In conclusion, on the left is a still top-secret photo of the vehicle to be used for transporting the players to and from their hotel. It's working name is the Autosfahrenbildtschneissenfeldunersaltzobenunterschriften

I finish by quoting Securicor CEO Nick Buckles, Reuters, May 24 2009: "South Africa was the most dangerous country in the world to work in -- ahead of Iraq and Afghanistan..”

Heckuva job lads.

Diversity is strength: It's also eating your mother's heart

You all know by now that I'm an impassioned believer in diversity and cultural equivalence. After all, how could I not be? Barry Andrews, our esteemed Minsiter for Something or Other, assures us that ‘diversity is strength’. And if he thinks that, it's good enough for me.

But sometimes, in the wee small hours, a flicker of doubt crosses my mind, only to be briskly dismissed, as quickly as it came. Yet the doubts resurfaced this morning, as I sat down to a meager breakfast of muesli and tofu. You see, I read this story from Ghana, which, as every schoolboy knows, is a poster child for African success.

The story, from Modern concerns Olivia, a reformed witch. She seemingly was ‘given the witchcraft spirit by her paternal grandmother at the age of five’. According to Olivia the other witches ordered her to bring her mother down to the camp to be slaughtered for one of their numerous feasts "since I had been feasting on other witches' meat and had never brought any meat to the camp for a feast."

Well, that sounds fair enough to me.

Over to Olivia again. "Because of their threat to kill me, which I knew they could do, I had no option but to spiritually take my mother to the camp the following day to be slaughtered. They gave my mother's heart to me to eat and our queen witch feasted on my mother's head as our culture demands"

I can understand that, and it doesn’t for one minute impair my belief in cultural equivalence. I'm sure those Norwegians and Swiss get up to pretty awful things too, but of course we never hear about that.

Overall, an enthralling story. And one which gives whole new meanings to ‘have a heart’ and ‘having mother for dinner’

Another victory for the Thought Police

The South Africa Sucks blog would not be everyone’s cup of tea, exactly. Racist, profane, scatological, raunchy, offensive, hilariously funny on occasion, especially those posts by the Uhuru Guru. But it had a deadly serious purpose – the exposure of what's really happening in South Africa. While partial in the extreme, it never advocated violence and, as a frequent visitor there, I can say it portrayed a much more accurate picture of SA than the panglossian fantasy we see in the MSM.

Before it moved to Wordpress the Google Thought Police had closed it down, after considerable intervention by powerful forces and vast numbers of those who want to foreclose honest debate on uncomfortable issues. However, recently UG suffered the midnight knock, literally in this case, and hauled off to jail on a trumped up charge going back fifteen years. Whereas he was duly released without charge, his life has become a nightmare and, for his own safety and that of his family he’s decided, wisely in my opinion, to call it a day.

Well done ‘liberals’, another great day for free speech.

Which brings me to my own case. As you can see every time you log on, the Google Thought Police have issued a content warning. I have no problem with that, but they’ve also relegated this site to the bottom of their search lists. Don't let anyone convince you that Google’s algorithms apply without fear or favour. They can and do bias their searches. I know this directly from my own experience as I used regularly test the positioning of the IS with a consistent search string.

Well done ‘liberals’, another great day for free speech.

Finally I've found out that I'm on the Romany Black List. Not just on it, right at the top of the list of offensive sites - a compliment of sorts. They’re watching me, I'm told.

Ah, so it goes. I also find that the IS is blocked, only temporarily, it seems, in several countries that I visit, mainly in the Middle East. Many readers, most recently teacher-paris, have found the same thing.

Well, that shows I'm pissing off quite a lot of the ‘right’ people. I just hope I don't get an actual midnight knock at some stage, just like the unfortunate UG.

Well done ‘liberals’, another great day for free speech.

PS – of course these Nazis are not liberals in any meaning of the term. Check this post to see what I mean

Now riddle me this.......

Thanks to Elaine for this link. If you read it you’ll see that on an Italian TV show debate an MP, Daniela Santanche (isn't she hot?)claimed "Mohammed was a polygamist and a pedophile because he had nine wives, one of whom was only nine years old, that is a historical fact"

According to the report, “her remark incensed Muslims in the audience. Studio ushers were seen physically restraining an irate, bearded member of the audience from lunging at her.”

Needless to say, the presenter immediately and subsequently went into dhimmi mode. "I and my staff dissociate ourselves from these comments, which are offensive to Islam".

Now what’s the riddle here, you might ask? After all, this is how the Religion of Peace always reacts to this charge.

Let me first, to maintain intellectual rigour, quote the following definitions from Encarta:

Polygamist: having multiple spouses: the custom of having more than one spouse at the same time

Pedophile: adult with sexual desire for children: an adult who has sexual desire for children or who has committed the crime of sex with a child

Now Mo qualifies eminently on both counts. He had innumerable wives and married Aisha when she was six, and consummated the ‘marriage’ (i.e., raped the child) when she was nine.

How do we know this? Why, from the ‘sacred’ books themselves. From the very texts that Muslims are shoving down our throats at every opportunity.

So, the obvious riddle is, if someone uses direct evidence that Muslims themselves accept as true, why do Muslims go ballistic?

Now the facile answer is that it doesn’t take much to get them to go ballistic. But surely even they must see the utter illogicality of their position?

Or is that asking a bit much of them?

Fort Hood: I help the C-in-C

Don't jump to conclusions” warned the Commander-in-Chief sternly, “we don't want to prejudge motivation here”. (I'm sure Sgt. James Crowley wished the C-in-C had taken his own advice before instantly jumping in to declare Henry Gates a ‘victim of racism’. But as Ronald Reagan used to say, 'let’s not talk about that’.)

However, we all understand the coded statement here, don't we? We’ve seen it a thousand times. When a victim, by which I mean a non-white non-Christian, does something awful, we must emphasise that his deed had nothing to do with his race or religion.

Still, being a sympathetic guy, and knowing that Barak has a lot on his plate, I decided to help him out. And I think I can!!

Here’s my analysis and the conclusions drawn. And if I say so, they’re absolutely brilliant. I've not only solved the problem for Barak, but drawn up some recommendations which would mitigate the risk of future occurrences!

Now pay close attention please, as this gets quite complex. I've extensively reviewed the evidence and it shows that Hasan proselytized for Islam , got angry and violent when people wouldn’t worship Allah, didn’t want to shoot at "fellow Muslims", was a member of a notoriously violent mosque in DC, and screamed 'Allah akbar' as he murdered infidels on that Thursday.

Conclusion: My considered conclusion from this is as follows: he was a Muslim extremist who saw himself doing his job by killing infidels and especially US soldiers.

There you are now Barak, that's just saved you a lot of effort. And I'm not finished! As an esteemed international consultant I'm now going to provide you with a few valuable recommendations as well – all entirely free to you!

Recommendation 1: If an army Captain tells a group of fellow officers in ‘an anti-American rant’ that “if you don't believe you are condemned to hell, your head is cut off, burning oil is burned (sic) down your throat” you don't promote him to Major. But that's what happened with Hassan last year, Barak.

I think you’ll accept this recommendation, but I don’t think you’ll take up the next ones. which is a pity, because they’d save you – and all the rest of us - a lot of trouble in the long run.

Recommendation 2: Within a reasonable timeframe, say end of next March, burn every major proponent of multiculti peecee bullshit at the stake. This recommendation may seem robust, but it is necessary. It derives from the following report from Yahoo News: ”His fellow students complained to the faculty about Hasan's "anti-American propaganda," but said a fear of appearing discriminatory against a Muslim student kept officers from filing a formal complaint.”

Recommendation 3: Pull out of Afghanistan now: This unwinnable war is bleeding America dry in terms of manpower and treasure and every day brings news of further disasters. It’s also driving Muslims demented all over around the world, including in the US, fuelling the very aggression you’re trying to ameliorate.

Recommendation 4: This follows from the last – stop Muslim immigration and sent back any Muslim not absolutely entitled to be in the US.

The latter two recommendations would mean that you wouldn’t have to fight them either at home or abroad. It’s what’s known as a win-win Barak. But you won't do that, though, will you? Too many vested interests to contend with. I understand. Which leads to the last point:

Barak, really, at this sensitive time, did you really have to propose a lobbyist (you know, the people you said you wouldn’t let near your government?) named Islam Siddiqui as your chief international agricultural negotiator? That smacks as being either extreme carelessness or extreme arrogance.

In either case, not good.

I'm worried for you Barak.

And that gurgling sound you hear......

Picture the scene: a 66 year-old woman is being seriously assaulted in her car, strangled in fact. Gärd Forsgren, for it was she, was possibly in danger of her life. At least she thought so. A number of cars drove by the incident at Nas, in central Sweden.

But not Per-Anders Pettersson. He stopped, hit the unnamed assailant on the shoulder with a car jack, and for good measure gave him another wallop on the head, fracturing his skull. Gärd Forsgren survived, and still does.

Now picture this scene: The criminal is brought to court. "Gärd informed the court that a drunk 26-year-old man stopped her car while she was driving on route 71, forced himself into the vehicle and held her in a stranglehold that gave her cause to fear for her life.

Forsgren told the court that as many as 20 cars passed by and did not stop despite her screams and that she had the hazard lights flashing on her car. Her rescuer was to arrive in the shape of 34-year-old Pettersson who at first screamed at the attacker and then hit him on the shoulder with the jack that he was carrying."

The verdict? The criminal got a sentence of one year in jail and has to pay the victim €6,000.

‘He got off lightly’ you say? Oh, perhaps I should explain. The criminal in this instance was not the unnamed attacker of the woman, rather the good Per Anders.

Yes folks, he went to the help of the woman, whacker her unnamed attacker, and now, after an unsuccessful appeal to Sweden’s Supreme Court, has a criminal record and languishes in a Swedish jail.

And the unnamed victim/attacker? He had to pay Gard about €700 in compensation.

That gurgling sound you hear is Sweden going down the drain.

Now some of you might wonder why the victim/attacker hasn't been named. Go to the bottom of the class! You obviously haven't read my post explaining how these things are managed in East Germany Sweden.

Sometimes diversity is good!

Those you who’ve read my post on the Hurricane Katrina anniversary will know what a, well, storm it provoked from some people. What particularly hit home was when I quoted Jared Taylor to the effect that “many whites will realize—some for the first time—that we have Africa in our midst, that utterly alien Africa of road-side corpses, cruelty, and anarchy that they thought could never wash up on our shores.”

I got a different view of Africa at the other end of the USA a few years back. I had been doing a stint at the University of Illinois at Champaign, and a friend there suggested, to my amazement, we visit the Third World. In this case Gary Indiana, which amazingly is only about a few hours drive away if memory serves me correctly.

Hello Africa. It was just like an African city. And it behaves like one. Massive levels of crime, welfare dependency, violence, poverty, unemployment, filth, litter and abandoned buildings everywhere. There were literally no whites to be seen, the city being one of the most salient examples of white flight.

Now some time ago that same friend (who by the way, went over to the US twenty years ago as a committed liberal and is now a confirmed ‘racist’) sent me this link.

You’ll see that four intruders entered a store and needlessly murdered an Indian shop assistant before robbing him. So what, you may well ask, after all, you said it’s like Africa? True, but the amazing thing here is that nobody went to the assistance of the dying man, they just kept on shopping and only one person eventually called the police.

When asked what he finds most disturbing about the surveillance footage, [the police chief] said, "The fact that people went in and out of the store and didn't call police. There is a man laying there. Nobody thinks to dial 911 or check to see if he's OK or anything."

The crime was reported (by a black reporter) and investigated by a black police chief who issued descriptions of the victims in the usual way. “Investigators say two suspects were dressed in black shirts, like one man on the tape who looks to be holding a gun. The other two had red shirts”. And they could have added, ‘had black faces’.

But no.

Now we could take the charitable view and say that, first, murderous criminals are most likely to be black, and being Gary, almost everyone is black anyway. So no point. However, that's not very likely, is it? Just like everywhere else in the West, the race of a criminal is not mentioned if he’s non-white.

Welcome to Africa. And just like Africa a little diversity (i.e. a dilution of the black proportion) would lead to a big improvement. So maybe we need diversity after all!

On a closing note, a saw in Prospect magazine that the average price of a house in Detroit urban (i.e. black) zone is now a princely $7,600.

Rageh solves the race/IQ problem!

Rageh Omaar is a smart lad. The son of wealthy Somali (yes!) immigrants to the UK, he went to the best public schools and then to Oxford. He then married the only daughter of a landed Scottish baron, whose title lineage goes back to the mid-1600s. Rageh has now put an end to that and the missus (Georgiana Rose Montgomery-Cuninghame) is now at home cranking out little Somalis for him (three at the latest count) while he does his thing around the world.

He now works for AL Jazeera, having left the BBC because of its being ‘a white man’s club’. I kid you not. Apparently has ‘more freedom’ at AJ. Indeed.

I've read his two books (they make good reading, seriously) and I formed the view that he’s a well-balanced individual. In the sense that he’s got a chip on both shoulders.

He now reappears in Channel 4 with a documentary, part of the season Race: Science's Last Taboo. According to the blurb, “in this, Rageh Omaar sets out to find out the truth, meeting scientists who believe the research supports the view that races can be differentiated as well as those who vehemently oppose this view. By daring to ask the difficult questions Omaar is able to explode the myths about race and IQ and reveal what he thinks are important lessons for society.”

I watched the programme (you can see it on the C4 site here) and I beg to differ about one thing. He did not ‘set out to find the truth’. He set out to prove that IQ meant nothing really, that in any event blacks were catching up with whites, and anyway it’s all down to social factors, not inheritance. Quite an achievement for one man in one hour, no?

By way of example he went to South Africa. He showed us horrendous townships outside CT. Their condition was, you’ve guessed it, ‘the legacy of apartheid’. Nobody was rude enough to ask why, if this were so, do you find similar hellholes all over the rest of Africa where apartheid is not a legacy?

Anyway, he then pulled his trump card. He tracked down a black astronomer, helpfully peering through a telescope into the night sky. This gentleman assured us that he had been educated to this level only because he matriculated in ‘the year freedom was won – 1994’. So the not too subtle point was that if only there hadn’t been apartheid all South African blacks would be, not impoverished shack dwellers, rather astronomers. Or similar, such as doctors. (Check out this post to see how Cape Town University addresses the latter.)

Duly enlightened, Rageh made his decision. Intelligence had nothing to do with race, rather it was totally determined by environment. Problem solved.

He finishes by wistfully speculating that, were we to eliminate poverty and discrimination everybody would achieve the same life outcomes. Now you may dismiss this as pietistic nonsense – which of course it is. But the real tragedy is that it serves to reinforce and perpetuate the failed social and educational strategies of the last fifty years.

Far from striking a blow for his fellow blacks, Omaar is in fact contributing to their ongoing underachievement. This case is very similar in that sense to my ‘Nobel Prize’ post a few weeks back. The simple sad truth is this. If you fail or refuse to see the cause of a problem, you are doomed never to solve it.

And so it goes’, as Kurt Vonnegut said…

"Anti-fascists" to the rescue

It’s a scene reminiscent of Hitler’s Brownshirts or Mussolini’s fascist storm troopers. Violent thugs try to block a democratically-elected politician from speaking, throwing stones, smashing windows, chanting and threatening.

What do? Call the police? The police are already here trying to uphold the law, but are overwhelmed by the violent mob. Nothing else to do other than to call in some anti-fascist reinforcement then.

Oh wait! The violent mob are the anti-fascists.

Strange, no?

We’re talking here of course about the attempt by BNP leader Nick Griffin to appear on the BBC Questions and Answers programme. He’s been legally and democratically elected, and the BBC, surprisingly for them, felt that he should be given an opportunity to explain the unpopular (unpopular with the BBC, that is) views of his party. And in front of a hand-picked hostile audience.

Seems reasonable. But the ‘anti-fascists’ don't like the idea of an elected party leader, whose views they don't like, being allowed to speak in public. To my simple mind that is the essence of fascism. Close down debate by force and violence.

Yet the MSM keep referring to these yobs as ‘anti-fascist’.

Yet another reason why the blogosphere is driving these Neanderthals in the MSM into irrelevance.

The US stimulus package: Your questions answered

Question: What is an Economic Stimulus payment?

Answer: It is money that the federal government will send to taxpayers.

Question: Where will the government get this money?

Answer:From taxpayers.

Question: So the government is giving me back my own money?

Answer: Only a smidgen.

Question: What is the purpose of this payment?

Answer: The plan is for you to use the money to purchase a high-definition TV set, thus stimulating the economy.

Question: But isn't that stimulating the economy ofChina ?

Answer: Shut up!

Below is some helpful advice on how to best help the US economy by spending your stimulus check wisely:

If you spend the stimulus money at Wal-Mart, the money will go to China . If you spend it on gasoline, your money will go to the Arabs. If you purchase a computer, it will go to India . If you purchase fruit and vegetables, it will go to Mexico , Honduras and Guatemala . If you buy a car, it will go to Japan, Germany or Korea. If you purchase useless stuff, it will go to Taiwan. If you pay your credit cards off, or buy stock, it will go to management bonuses and they will hide it offshore.

Instead, keep the money in America by:
1. spending it at yard sales, or 2. going to ball games, or 3. spending it on prostitutes, or 4. beer or 5. tattoos. (These are the only American businesses still operating in the US ..)


Go to a ball game with a tattooed prostitute that you meet at a yard sale and drink beer allday.

America's oligarchs gorge again

In this post I referred to an article by Matt Taibbi in Rolling Stone which described Goldman Sachs as “a great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity, relentlessly jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like money”.

The scale and depth of their effrontery is so great that one is left with the impression that they don't care what anyone thinks anymore. And maybe they’re right. Maybe they are beyond control.

Think of it this way. At the height of the crisis a little over a year ago GS was essentially broke. The $15 billion in derivative contracts that they had insured with AIG were in effect worthless because AIG didn’t have any money. As we all know, the government, in the person of ex-GS CEO Hank Paulson, rescued AIG, which then immediately paid off GS in full. No 20 cents in the dollar shit for Goldman. In addition, with the government guarantee in place GS could now borrow more than 20 times their asset base at a rate of about 1% from the Feds’ printing machine.

Nice position to be in, especially when two of your main rivals (Lehman’s and Bear Sterns) had been allowed go bust (by the same people who rescued GS). And even more especially when TARP-related and other distressed assets were now available at a fraction of their original prices. Any fool could make hay in such circumstances, and whatever GS are, they’re not fools. The money started rolling in once again.

The fact that virtually all of the new multi-billion dollar profits come from trading (i.e. gambling), adding no value at all to the real economy is bad enough. But GS now plans to distribute billions in bonuses while the real American economy languishes in recession, businesses starved of cash and unemployment at record levels.

Throughout this crisis, before and since, the SEC and the Feds generally, were at best criminally negligent, at worst in on the scam. It’s a moot point whether the real story of what happened will ever emerge. But you would expect one thing at least to emerge from this whole sorry mess. That the Augean Stables of the SEC would be thoroughly cleaned out and that the new controllers there would be powerful, heavyweight and independent.
But what do we get? The appointment of a twenty-nine year-old nobody from GS as its enforcement division's first chief operating officer! All we know about Adam Storch is that he previously worked in Goldman's business intelligence unit. Oh wait! We also know that seven years ago he was sorting mail at Deloitte’s Buffalo office. Yes, that's the new fox in the hen-house. This appointment is so grotesque that to me at least it says that GS realises that it is simply unaccountable and doesn’t care what anyone thinks. It will continue to loot until there’s nothing left.
And there may be little or nothing left of the American economy in due course. Real unemployment heads towards 20% as manufacturing is outsourced to cheaper locations, while low-priced foreigners are brought in to boost profits and further reduce the share accruing to America’s middle and lower classes. Meanwhile the dollar continues its precipitous decline against what would before have been considered basket-case currencies, driving the national debt still further into the stratosphere.

In Europe this would lead to riots and peasants with torches heading for the castle. But the MSM in the US, almost all owned by mega multinational corporations, sing from the same song sheet in supporting globalisation and mass immigration. The politicians have been bought and paid for, so it’s hard to see where a solution will come from.

Meanwhile, as airline pilots subsist on $40,000 a year and food stamps, the people who caused the mess can resume raking in their multi-million dollar bonuses. And GS need have no worries. They form the nucleus of the Obama economic regime just as they did under Bush. The original heist was the brainchild of GS alumni Robert Rubin and Larry Summers, while the bankrupting of their main competitors and the disbursal of billions in taxpayers funds was arranged by GS alumnus Hank Paulson. Tim Geithner owes everything he has to Summers and Rubin and is seen as a ventriloquist’s dummy in their hands.

The vice-like grip of GS is even worse under the current administration. I began to research it but found so many that I gave up. Try it yourself! Obama has been bought more solidly than Bush.

Scary stuff.

Where will it all end?

In fairness to Islamic terrorists

Now I've often been accused of being unfair to murderous Islamic terrorists, and I suppose that's largely true. So after examining my conscience I have decided to make the initial award of The Savant Prize for Public Service to, well, that's a bit of a problem because I don't know his name.

But credit where credit is due, I say.

Here's the story from Iraq according to the International Herald Tribune:

"A man stood up during Friday prayers and began loudly arguing with the preacher"

Mark one for the recipient.

"He raised an assault rifle and shot the imam first before spraying those kneeling around him"

You got to admit that he has, well had, a keen sense of priorities

And then, the piece de resistence, when he thoughtfully rounded off the whole touching episode

"when the ammo was finished he blew himself up"

Ah yes. Where would we be without the Religion of Peace, hey?

In the same edition I see that the US is allowing an extra 30,000 Iraqis immigrate. Just what you need over there now I'd say.

Master criminal stalks England

As England reels under the onslaught of a master criminal, householders lock their doors early, citizens fearfully walk the streets and children are sent to bed early. It’s no exaggeration to say that terror stalks the land. Nowhere is safe from this criminal mastermind, whose reach extends to every corner of the realm, even, and I'm looking fearfully over my shoulder as I write this, into the office of the Prime Minister himself!

The extent of the crisis can be gauged by the fact that large numbers of police have been withdrawn from their diversity training and gypsy appreciation courses. What has this evil mastermind been up to? He's been sending out letter, that's what. But not just any letters. Let me quote from that impeccably unbiased source, the Guardian (this link).

“According to Hampshire police, which is heading the investigation, the letters are all pro-English in content” (imagine that, pro-English. The cheek) “and racially inflammatory, with many appearing to have been sent in response to Daily Mail articles. All the letters are offensive and racist against a wide variety of nationalities and cultures.”
And in a terrifying demonstration of the criminal’s reach “One of the letters was sent to Gordon Brown's constituency office in Fife in April.”

I have to warn you my friends, it gets even worse. This criminal, ruthlessly enclosing clippings from the Daily Mail, and heedless of the consequences, even accuses the BBC of racial bias! “The letters regularly express anti-BBC views and accuse the corporation of racial bias”.

All of this is deeply disturbing, but good news is at hand. The police forces have pooled resources and are leaving no stone unturned. “Various forces had already started their own investigations into the letters but Hampshire police has now taken control of the inquiry, codenamed Operation Heron. Officers in Hampshire have been liaising with colleagues in Fife, Strathclyde, Lothian & Borders, Derbyshire, Merseyside, Lincolnshire and Bedfordshire, and the investigation is being assisted by the National Domestic Extremism Team. An appeal for help from the public will be shown on tonight's Crimewatch programme on BBC1.”
And there’s even better news. Plod is closing in on the criminal. In a piece of stunning investigative work, detectives have identified the general whereabouts of the criminal’s lair, which has been narrowed down to the Portsmouth/Isle of Wight area . “Detective Inspector Donna Goff (suspiciously British name, that) said nearly all the letters were postmarked Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight”.
Well spotted!

Better again, they’ve even got an accurate fix on his age. How did they possibly discover this? Inspector Donna again: “Repeat phrases used also indicate this, especially reference to 'working for 50 years' and regular reference to pensions."

Now I admit I had to mull over this for a while but then realised that, by Jove, they’d cracked it! You see, if he’s been working for fifty years and is drawing a pension, well, to my mind at least, it’s a good indication that he’s elderly.

No flies on these guys.

Now a few words in conclusion. This is a deeply disturbing development, and I can understand if you’re all worried about it. But remember this. The odds of your being a victim are statistically tiny. A combined army of several regional police forces is on the job, and they’re closing on the terrorist. And I make no apologies for referring to him as such. Even now they can almost hear him cackling in his lair.

So don't worry and enjoy the weekend!

"I don't feel safe anywhere"

Returning on the subway from the Blade Runner Stockholm suburb of Rinkeby (previous post) a pretty young girl sat across from me. She had a tiny dog on her lap (apparently she had been to a vet in Rinkeby). I asked had she felt unsafe making her way through that particular hell hole.

Her response?

"I don't feel safe anywhere"

Imagine that. A native Swedish girl says she doesn't feel safe anywhere in her own city, thanks to its being flooded by migrants from violent, lawless and debased cultures.

I drew attention in this post to the head of the Swedish Immigration Board, preening himself about feeling good for allowing hundreds more Somalis loose on the Swedes. I don't think this young girl feels quite so good about them somehow.

Celebrating diversity in Rinkeby

The suburb of Rinkeby in Stockholm has achieved legendary status for its diversity. Now it’s also achieved legendary status for other things, but as Ronald Reagan used say, let’s not talk about that. We are in Sweden after all.

Last Friday afternoon I decided to check it out at first hand. Most of the new suburbs in Stockholm have a central square as a kind of focal point, and Rinkeby is no exception. The unusual difference here was that the train station opened straight out onto the square. So you went, instantly, from a well run commuter train to what was in effect the pub scene in Star Wars transposed to Mogadishu.

Now being tall, handsome, elegantly dressed and with a regal bearing, I'm used to having my appearance create an instant impression. But this was something else. The place came to a standstill.

A youth ‘of Middle Eastern appearance’ who had been raping a Swedish girl stopped in mid stroke, ass suspended at the apogee of his thrust. A group of mullahs who had been stoning an adulteress to death let the stones drop from their hands. And two gangs of Somalis, who had been engaged in armed warfare across the square put aside their Kalashnikovs and RPG rocket launchers to gaze at the amazing spectacle.

I'm no fool, and my conclusion was that not too many whites ventured into this special world. And I also concluded that my presence was not being viewed with unalloyed enthusiasm by the assembled cultural enrichers. Accordingly, much and all as I would have liked to lingered to savour the rich diversity on hand, I beat a somewhat hasty retreat. Still, with your interests in mind I managed to capture on camera some of the scenes of rich cultural diversity on display in the square.

Next year's Physics Nobel Prize winner

Well, with Barak Obama winning the Nobel Peace Prize for, basically, being black and hoping that everything will work out fine, it’s clear that AA has now extended to this arena. Hence I bring you next year’s winner of the Physics prize: Ladies and gentlemen, meet William Kamkwamba.

Now I assume you’ve heard of William. If you haven’t you must have been in hibernation over the Summer. His breakthrough invention has lead to appearances on CNN, BBC, CNBC and even a fawning interview with Jon Stewart on the Today Show. He’s won a major book deal as the protagonist of ‘The Boy Who Harnessed The Wind” and been feted by climate change campaigners like Al Gore and business leaders the world over.

According to the BBC he’s even been invited to the “prestigious Technology Entertainment Design conference in Arusha, Tanzania”. (stop laughing at the back please!) They add “Mr Kamkwamba - who has been flown to conferences around the globe to recount his life-story - has the world at his feet” . One of the comments on the BBC (or was it CNN?) blog claimed ‘conclusive proof at last that intelligence has no racial component’.

Now what was the dramatic breakthrough that lead to all of this? Did he discover how complex physical phenomena emerge from simple ingredients? Has he solved the riddle of what happens far from states of equilibrium and why? Or maybe he’s made some major discovery in the nanoworld?
Well, no, I'm afraid his accomplishment has been a bit more modest. Specifically he’s invented a way to generate electricity by way of a windmill built from commonly available components. Now I must admit I was somewhat surprised when I saw this because going back a long time – it was before I moved to Chateau Savant, and that was thirty years ago – a friend of mine, take a bow Jim, seemed to do exactly that. Much to our amusement, he developed a windmill which generated electricity. Doing a discounted cash flow analysis I worked out that his investment would, over the course of twenty years, generate a net profit of four pence. We got a great laugh at that. But he still did it, and made a bulb light up, or something.

And then I'm aware from my travels that the gauchos down in southern Argentina have been doing the same thing since the middle of the last century. If you Google a string like ‘making electricity from windmill with common components’ you’ll get over one million hits.

So what's going on here?

Well, let’s go back to William. Apparently he found a book somewhere sub-titled ‘how to generate electricity from a windmill using commonly available materials’. He then, using the instructions in the book, went off and ‘invented’ a windmill using commonly available materials to generate electricity.

And, er, that's about it. So in effect, he read a book on how to do something, went off and did it, and, even though the same thing has been done around the world for decades, has become an international celebrity. I'm not being churlish or a curmudgeon, that's what happened.

The question is why. And of course we all know why. He’s black, wears a suit, hasn’t killed anyone, and has made some gadget after reading the instructions. Nobel Prize material for sure.

The paradox about this farce, and it is a farce, just like Obama’s Peace Prize, is that it unintentionally reinforces the black stereotype. Had this achievement been made by a white or an Asian it wouldn’t have attracted a flicker of attention. But an African doing something useful makes world headlines. Even thoughtful blacks realise that this is the ultimate, albeit unintentional, put-down. The tyranny of low expectations.

And an intersting coda: If you look at the myriad of comments on the various blogs you'll not find a single one which isn't gushing and tremelous at this stunning achievement. Truly, mass hypnosis has set in.
