Could the Labour and Tory Identity Crises Let in UKIP?

Today, Frank Davis points to the YouGov poll which shows UKIP more popular than Labour:

CON: 38%
UKIP: 28%
LAB: 25%
LIB-DEM: Missing, presumed dead.

Frank says,

I think all the mainstream political parties are facing identity crises. There’s very much a sense of fin de siècle in the air, that the old order is disintegrating.

He adds that Labour no longer represents working people. That’s true, unless they are coming from Eastern Europe and working for peanuts, undercutting our people, to keep down the costs for these champagne socialists’ wealthy corporate chummies.

The Conservatives no longer want to conserve. It’s become a progressive, modernising party.

He finishes with a remarkable quote from Polly Toynbee, who says that, “The trouble is that the sort of people who vote UKIP… often don’t watch the BBC News, don’t read newspapers that tell them the truth about where the parties stand.”

Dick Puddlecote has written about how out of touch Labour are, with Emily Thornberry’s snobbery about white van drivers and Labour’s leaked document about their healthist plans, including minimum alcohol prices and a ban on television adverts for ‘unhealthy’ food before 9pm.

Thornberry did the country a favour by showing that Labour don’t have the first clue about people in general. For Miliband to claim that his party respects the working class – while his party members furiously work to denormalise and outlaw their freedom of choice – is a just a sick joke.

I used to vote for these muppets! Their ‘morals’ (for want of a better word) are diametrically opposite to mine, although this has become far clearer in more recent years.

To me, it was a case of black and white; Labour and Tory; us and them. Of course, now I realise it’s them and them, sharing the same ideas because it’s the same people behind the curtain pulling the strings, against us. The ‘us’ in the equation are truly disregarded and despised and only needed on polling days.

For example, D.P. links to a Guardian article about Labour’s ideas about minimum pricing, etc.,

The Conservative party chairman, Grant Shapps, said: “It’s the same old Labour. They claim they are worried about prices – but want to put up the cost of a drink. Not only would that make a drink after work more expensive, it would hit pubs hard, putting many out of business.

We know that the smoking bans have already done that and that the huge indirect duties with VAT on top on tobacco, alcohol and petrol/diesel affect the poorest the most, but the Tories have exactly the same plan. If memory serves, Cameron’s figure was 45p a unit minimum price. Alex Salmond’s is 50p. Some Labour councilllors in Northumberland got into trouble in 2012 (Salmond’s price hike was supposed to have come into effect in the Spring of 2013, but hasn’t yet) by suggesting that they could profit from this by advertising “booze cruises” by bus obviously, for Scots to benefit from England’s cheaper (but still extortionate) prices.

And to think that some people say Labour are useless at anything to do with economics!

Of course, the Tories and Lib Dems were quick to denounce Labour. Probably because they wish they’d thought of it first.

Some of us have been fortunate in becoming deprogrammed. The smoking ban was the wake-up call for Frank. He then started to notice many other things he disagreed with. For me it was the realisation that the Labour vs Tory Punch and Judy show is just entertainment for the masses to give the illusion of “democracy” and to have reached an age when I can remember many governments and many characters and their promises of better times if we just trust them with our vote, while life seems to have become increasingly difficult regardless of who’s supposedly in charge.

There’s a 5½ month race on for more people to become deprogrammed, because another five years of this will possibly finish us off completely. Like the myriad of difficulties encountered with the possibility of Scottish ‘independence’, e.g. splitting the possessions after the divorce (including our overseas possessions – not sure if Salmond wanted Bermuda, Tristan da Cunha, Pitcairn, or what), the same will eventually be true of trying to separate the UK from Brussels.

Judging by the recent by-election UKIP nearly took from Labour, we could almost be there. But they’ll no doubt revert to type in the general election. It should be worth staying up most of the night for.

As for Ed Miliband. He surely has to go for Labour’s sake. Cameron, I think, will stay, but be very ‘earnestly’ Eurosceptic until he tries to form a new coalition with the SNP, N. Irish parties and the five Lib Dem MPs. Lib Dems are probably past caring who leads them. To see their tiny MP tally for the new parliament should be just one of the highlights.

Next Spring’s general election: last chance saloon for this one-horse country?

Explaining UKIP’s Popularity

Rise of UKIP graph.

Survation poll for The Mail on Sunday published last month.

Again, Frank Davis has inspired me to put fingers to keyboard, this time with his post about UKIP being a “state of mind“.

When David Cameron begs Labour, LibDem and Green supporters in Rochester and Strood to vote Tory to stop UKIP in this week’s by-election in which the UKIP candidate, former Tory MP, Mark Reckless is expected to retake for his new party, you know the Establishment are fighting for their lives now and that the LibLabCon truly is one party.

Maybe it’s an old joke, but somebody commented,

Desperate Dave reduced to begging for LibLabGreen votes to “stop UKIP”. Somebody should break the news to him that Eton Mess is supposed to be a dessert and not a state of mind!

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist in a sexist shirt to explain the reasons for UKIP’s success. Like Frank, once a Liberal and me, once a Labour voter (how I winced typing that), we discovered that we are actually not “progressive” or statist because we value freedom more.

From his quote from the source of his inspiration,

No easy portrait of an average ‘Kipper’ can be drawn. It is the ability of the current mood to unite seemingly disparate groups in support of Ukip that has the established political class perplexed.

From ‘Animal Farm’,

Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.

The LibLabCon party doesn’t ‘do’ logic or truth. They are “perplexed” because they have been fooling the people for so long that they have addled their own brains. If some publicly-funded ‘charity’ tells them that two plus two equals 124 then they’ll accept it and demand that we all accept it too or we have arithmophobia (the fear of numbers) and must be re-educated. Schools must teach that “2 + 2 = 124″. Bakers must decorate cakes with “2 + 2 = 124″ or appear in court. We must all celebrate this new arithmetic because the scientists have reached a consensus, like passive smoking is dangerous and climate change will kill us unless we start living like eighth century peasants.

That said, the ones at the top will always know that 2 + 2 =4 just like they know that climate change is largely natural, that SHS is of no consequence, that ‘gay marriage’ is a ridiculous concept, etc.

So, here we have David “Vote UKIP, get Labour” Cameron begging all the other voters, who can’t stand him or his party, to vote for his candidate in this safe Tory seat because the last thing any of the mainstream want to do is risk stopping the cycle of social destruction that, for example, Annabelle describes, above.

It is telling that UKIP’s support is disproportionately from people over forty: those who can remember when this country was a better place to live in, friendlier, more free, more easy-going with fewer regulations and the feel of home, not as part of a grand social re-engineering experiment by demented professors in blood-stained lab coats.

Unfortunately, the younger generations cannot make that comparison from experience, having been mollycoddled from birth, both by overprotective parents and the State. And brainwashed by the media and in schools that everything which carries the ‘equality’, ‘diversity’ or ‘human rights’ label must be virtuous and those who oppose them are dinosaurs, out of touch with reality and plain nasty. They are probably more likely to favour the EU and global government over the nation state because they think it will banish wars and protect the environment. They believe that the sort of people who hold a conference – only to then kick out the public and press – to discuss a global tax which would hugely increase tobacco prices, can be trusted to treat them fairly.

Ironically, we seemed to be a more tolerant country decades ago, before the ‘equality’ brigade started stirring the melting pot. Hardly surprising, as their intention was division. dehumanisation and demoralisation to force our society to collapse under the pressure.

I probably voted tactically in half the elections before turning to UKIP. When I lived in Tory Harrow, for example, I used to vote Lib Dem to try to oust the Tories, to no avail. If I was still a Labour voter and living in Rochester and Strood, I think I would be voting for UKIP to help give the Tories a good drubbing.

But desperate times call for desperate measures and Desperate Dan Dave is making his pathetic plea to try to save the illusions of ‘democracy’ and ‘equality’ and to realise his treasonous dream of a united Europe and a top job therein.

Presumably, as long as our freedoms continue to fly out the window and our country disappears from under us, UKIP will keep on growing and growing and that includes the young, who aren’t as controlled as the government would have liked.

The British Youth Parliament has rejected campaigning for same-sex marriage, after it came bottom in a vote of priorities for 2013.

The Future?

If you were going to write a novel about what life will be like in the future, what form would it take?

Leg-iron is writing a dystopic novel called “Panoptica”. From time to time he complains that real life keeps catching up with his ideas, which are supposed not to happen until some time in the terrible future.

He has worked out how to make everyone equal in his nightmarish world. He says that the idea behind “diversity” being rammed down our throats constantly is so that the people will accept anything to stop it – and that is true equality, socialist style, where everyone is equally poor and the state owns everything.

He is turning the whole equality and diversity thing around, changing its current role as a divide and conquer device into a unifying force. Interesting. He wrote in reply to me,

I don’t think it’s a turn around. It’s what happens when the ‘divide’ part moves to the ‘conquer’ part.

Of course, real equality (for the proles) is what you get when socialism gets out of hand. Lenin said, “The goal of socialism is communism.” That endgame is becoming clear now after many decades of ‘grooming’ the past few generations without a (noticeable) revolution, although we’ve had revolutions like Women’s Lib, ‘Gay’ Lib., etc.

If Cameron had kept his pre-election promise (hahahaha) to cease pandering to political correctness and stop funding the fake charities and quangos it could have been a reality already. Actually, they need to get to the stage where every last Christian baker will make a “gay wedding” cake for a couple of militant troublemaking stooges. Or more likely, wait until all the laws are in place to deal with the dissenters.

But I think we can already see that we are being re-engineered to be equal in monetary terms (the original equality?). For example, it seems to me that most people are scraping by regardless of their income. Where a couple both work they often have two cars and there might be child-minding expenses, leaving them with next to nothing. At the other end of the normal spectrum are those on the minimum wage topped up with tax credits. Is it just my perception or do many companies think that the minimum wage is the wage now?

I advised Leg-iron to mention the ‘S’ word, if he hasn’t already considered it. I think it will be critical. The UN’s Agenda 21 is about “sustainable development”, which many observers take to mean population reduction. This could be achieved by various means. The other day, I thought that manipulating the price of GM patented seed (and engineering suicide genes to kill the plant before it’s ready for harvesting) could be used to fine-tune the numbers they want to starve to death. Courtesy of The Ministry of Plenty!

Someone else had first bagsies on that term. But unlike ’1984′ rationing won’t do, as killing off the ‘excess’ billions is required, although there might be some rationing, or a half-hearted attempt, just for show and to play with us.

If the proles would only learn what’s really happening then the elites’ influence could be stamped out, but they control the mainstream media so they can keep the majority in the land of ‘bread and circuses’. Until the bread runs out. Leg-iron imagines a world in which all the large countries have been fragmented and further fragmented,

The Highlands will want to separate from the Central Belt in Scotland, the islands are already talking about secession, and so on. The process will repeat in countries all over Europe. The EU will fall and Europe will fragment into tiny kingdoms once again. All run by puppets put in place by the hidden devious rulers.

For his novel, he imagines that these small countries will be involved in well-orchestrated wars to reduce the population. I would say that as food and fuel are likely going to be made to be artificially scarce there will be wars just to keep alive. Not that the next country or region will have much, but we could end up back in the days of ragtag armies pillaging and raping.

Personally, I see the splitting up of countries into regions – all keen to stay in the EU – as a way of making the EU even more powerful and unaccountable (if that is possible). We could see the big countries Balkanise. It is true that something as small as ‘free’ prescriptions in Scotland, Wales and N.I. enrages people in England (although they only seem to blame the Scots). I have seen it online so many times as the main reason for Scottish ‘independence’ being supported by English people. Sometimes, invoking a bit of jealousy is all it takes. The differences between prescription charges and tuition fees are not fair; it’s political shenanigans, but the masses tend to increasing think with their emotions rather than their brains. That’s something else I think we have been trained to do. People’s brains are in their knees now as they are jerked by some engineered situation, like the Muslim families given huge houses in leafy suburbs by their local councils to rattle the cages of everyone else. Like with the prescription charges, people don’t like favouratism. But presumably that would stop in ‘Panoptica’ and only the outer party members (or whatever they’ll be called) will get small extras.

Eventual revolution is inevitable.

It depends on how well the propaganda works. It seemed to be nigh on perfected in ’1984′. For years in the UK, many people have been loving their enslavement. Most people are happy for the State to ‘care’ for them from cradle to grave in return for handing over half their earnings in taxes (not that they necessarily realise this part), even though health and education are now pitiful and pensions a pittance and so on. I imagine in ‘Panoptica’, there might be Soviet-style apartment blocks to cram in the masses?

After I left a comment a few days ago on Underdogs about looking for property in North Korea – joking that soon it will be a beacon of freedom compared to the West – or was I joking? I actually did look, only to find out that housing there is all state-owned, but that there is a growing black market and that includes the sale of houses, but you have to give backhanders to officials.

Yes, there will still be rebels in the future, regardless of the relentless mind control. It’s presumably where some of the story lies. People who can remember when you could smoke in pubs, when there was plenty of food and so much more. All muttered by ‘conspiracy loons’, of course.

The proles will tattle on each other, East German-style. It started, legitimately perhaps, with shopping a drink driver then moved onto reporting benefits cheats.

One final thing. You do believe I’m just making all this up, right?

We are definitely heading for a global socialist government; we’re probably 4/5ths of the way there. We’re definitely going to see major population reduction by one means or another. We are definitely going to feel more like we’re living in a police state as time goes by. There will be a one world religion of Luciferianism camouflaged as something wonderful which the Freemasons have been working on for a couple of centuries – indirectly helped by the Fabians and other far left groups who similarly need to destroy Christianity for their own reasons. The WHO’s first D-G, Brock Chisholm, eugenicist and internationalist, said,

“To achieve world government, it is necessary to remove from the minds of men their individualism, loyalty to family traditions, national patriotism, and religious dogmas.”

It’s all being taken care of. It started a long time ago. Our traitorous politicians started signing dangerous international treaties decades ago, without a cheep from the natives, because we believed their lies. Their social engineering to weaken national identity, weaken the family and weaken religion has also been very successful.

A little more time and there will only be one worldview – one where the State is seen as an all-loving surrogate parent.

And the few remaining who say differently are ‘conspiracy theorists’ at best and dangerous criminals at worst, but by that time, the proles will practically all be snitches (probably half are already) and the State will have the power to incarcerate dissenters on grounds of mental illness.

And they all lived happily ever after. Not.

Did the Nazis Really Lose the War?

Today, Frank Davis writes about tobacco control in Nazi Germany and how it is considered to have been far more complex than the bans and other measures we have today – perhaps to muddy the waters because Tobacco Control is worried about the comparison with the Third Reich.

Frank also reminds us that the Nazis introduced the concept of “passive smoking” (Passivrauchen).

In many ways, Nazi antismoking methodology and policies became the models for the post-war era. Doll and Hill’s two post-war studies used the same questionnaire-based methodology as the Nazis. And the Nazi notion of “passive smoking” was also subsequently revived. And Nazi-style smoking bans in public places were introduced.

Also, today’s anti-smoking laws are generally far more authoritarian than the Nazi versions.

But Frank also believes that,

It may be truthfully said that, while Nazi Germany was defeated long ago, and Nazi racial theory consigned to the garbage dump of history, Nazi antismoking ideology and methodologies and policies now flourish in the 21st century…

Many people now wonder if it was defeated.

Firstly, US Military Intelligence report EW-Pa 128 was written in November 1944 and describes top German industrialists meeting to decide the future of their country when it looked like they would lose the War, and that the “Fourth German Reich, unlike its predecessor, would be an economic rather than a military empire – but not just German”.

Not that it would necessarily be Nazi (national socialist), but socialist the EU certainly is. Socialist, unaccountable and financially crooked.

Secondly, eugenics is alive and ‘well’ in the West. In the UK, Marie Stopes pioneered “family planning”. As I’ve said before, she doted on Hitler, even sending him poetry and locating her “clinics” in mainly poorer areas. She was so obsessed with selective breeding to produce the “master race” that she cut out her son from her will because he married a short-sighted woman.

Today, Marie Stopes “clinics” are among the main contraception and abortion “providers” here. Their directors, like the other main “provider”, BPAS, have been government advisors on reducing teenage pregnancy. They keep advising younger ages for starting to “educate” children about sex because they know it will make the situation worse and keep increasing their customer base, in my opinion.

And in GB, “doctors” can kill unborn babies suspected of having a disability right up to the point of birth (nine out of ten babies diagnosed with Down’s syndrome are aborted). Before starting on the Jews, Gypsies and others, the Nazis gassed tens of thousands of mentally and physically disabled people in their hospitals.

The overpopulation panic also seems to have begun in Germany. Lebensraum (literally “living space”) pre-dates the Third Reich, but Hitler’s expansion plans to the east, for example, were to displace “inferior” peoples, like the Slavs, and populate these areas with Germans.

These days many people believe in overpopulation, despite projections that the global population will even out and despite the birth rates in many Western countries, Japan and Korea becoming dangerously low and resulting in population decline and probable catastrophic social problems in decades to come.

One of the main differences between the Third Reich and Western governments today – and this is not an endorsement! – is that the Nazis put the German people first, whereas today, the natives are generally treated as second-class citizens for divide and rule/social engineering purposes to help bring down countries by diluting national identity and replacing it with a cosy internationalist outlook of peace and prosperity between peoples – reeling in the gullible with fishy false promises of a global Utopia.

So, the EU gets the Nobel Peace Prize as part of the mirage that supranational unions can produce peace and harmony.

Anyway, Lebensraum will be achieved through “sustainability” in the Utopia being constructed. It is anyone’s guess how it will be done. Perhaps a two-child maximum family size, more “assisted suicides” especially for those who don’t request it, i.e. assisted murder, like some of the victims of the Liverpool Care Pathway, but that game’s up, but it was probably a trial run. Or mass starvation – the land used to grow biofuels and left idle as investments could feed nearly a billion mouths. EU farmers are paid to not grow food and our fishermen, when not consigned to port, have to throw back tons of fish into the sea.

There are loads of ways to reduce the amount of available food. GM crops are perhaps the best bet. Monsanto et al can keep raising the price of seed and the number of people left to starve can be finely tuned, thus more Lebensraum.

In an article, How Monsanto Is Terrifying the Farming World, we get an idea of the callous disregard for people that Monsanto has,

Percy Schmeiser was a farmer. Shortly after the Monsanto company introduced genetically modified (GM) canola plants to Canada, Percy Schmeiser was a farmer facing a lawsuit.

After hearing that GM crops could potentially increase yields, three farmers in Schmeiser’s region planted fields of Monsanto’s seed. Winds pushed pollen from GM canola into Schmeiser’s fields, and the plants cross-pollinated. The breed he had been cultivating for 50 years was now contaminated by Monsanto’s GM canola.

Did Monsanto apologize? No. It sued Schmeiser for patent infringement — first charging the farmer per acre of contamination, then slapping him with another suit for $1 million and attempting to seize his land and farming equipment. After a seven-year battle, the Canadian Supreme Court eventually ruled against him but let him keep his farm and his $1 million. He was one of the lucky ones.

And of course, many scientists and others who worked for the Nazis were allowed to escape to the USA to work for the government.

I think that the future will make Hitler’s efforts look very small scale in comparison.

Drinking While Pregnant Could Become a Criminal Offence

What isn’t (or isn’t going to be), I am starting to wonder?

From one of Dick Puddlecote’s posts last week,

DUP MP Ian Paisley quite rightly ripped into incompetent former health minister Anna Soubry over the loss of 900 jobs in his constituency at an annual cost of £160 million to the UK economy.

The lost jobs are to be at what I believe is the UK’s last remaining cigarette factory, Gallaher’s in Ballymena, Co Antrim.

The Belfast Telegraph has the story,

[Ian Paisley MP] criticised those he accused of calling for “over-regulation” of the industry in the EU. “I am not in the habit of scaremongering or crying wolf,” he said.

“For the past five years since I became Member of Parliament for North Antrim I have warned about the serious unintended consequences for jobs in North Antrim if government locally nationally and in Europe continues to over-regulate the already heavily regulated tobacco industry.

“Indeed, in July 2012 I warned that 1,000 jobs were under threat. Unfortunately those warnings fell on deaf ears. This was despite me arranging over twenty on-site visits for politicians from all parties and the government to see the impact more regulations would have on jobs.

The closure of the last cigarette factory on the mainland was announced last Spring,

The Bristol-based tobacco company, the world’s fourth largest by market share, plans to close its factory in Nottingham, where it employs 540 people, as part of a European restructuring programme designed to help it save £300m a year from September 2018.

The group added that forthcoming European regulations, which will ban the sale of packs of 10 cigarettes and 30g packs of rolling tobacco, would also affect production.

The agenda, of course, is deindustrialisation to bring this country to its knees. Together with ideological subversion, I don’t think we have many years left of relative prosperity or any sort of national identity or freedom to speak of.

Here we are, a country of some ten million smokers that very soon won’t produce a single cigarette; a land of politicians obsessed with carpetting the countryside with wind turbines and yet we don’t have one major manufacturer of these things; an island nation whose ships and boats are increasingly being made in countries from France to Korea and so on.

I see these failings as a serious dereliction of governmental duty. Worse than that, I believe it to be sabotage of our industry by traitors for geopolitical reasons.

Finally to the point of the post. I saw a link on the article above to this article: Drinking while pregnant could become criminal offence, warn charities ahead of Appeal Court hearing.

The fear stems from this,

A council is seeking criminal injuries compensation for a six-year-old girl with “growth retardation” caused by her mother’s alcohol consumption during pregnancy.

Foetal Alcohol Syndrome was diagnosed 252 times in England in 2012 to 2013.

The charities claim however that there is “continuing uncertainty” in the medical profession over the relationship between drinking and harm to the foetus.

They have said mothers and their babies would not be best served by treating pregnant women with drug or alcohol abuse problems as criminals.

One of the “charities” is the British Pregnancy Advisory Service (bpas). It is the first time that I can remember agreeing with them.

The week before last, their boss, Ann Furedi, wrote a cold-hearted piece for The Independent, entitled “Abortion is safe, and it should be as available as easily as contraception.” The subheadline is, “The time has come to decriminalise it altogether.”

I’m sure she knows fine that it almost has been. BPAS provides contraception and abortions. The wellbeing of unborn babies seems to be of no concern. It is all driven by pure feminist selfishness, as Ms Furedi says,

“We should take very seriously any legal developments which call into question pregnant women’s fundamental right to bodily autonomy and right to make their own decisions.”

BPAS isn’t a charity, is it? It’s part of a political movement. It’s heavily involved in the UK’s slaughter of the unborn so that Ms Feminist can have autonomy over her ‘own body’. It is too inconvenient for them to consider that pregnancy means there are now two lives to contemplate. Actually, three, but fathers seem to be increasingly neglected in this society which still apparently treats women as second class citizens if you believe the militant feminists. There are also the potential grandparents, siblings, aunts and uncles, etc. with a stake in the decision, so this pathetically thoughtless attitude of ‘my body, my choice’ won’t do.

Ask a smoker what it is like to be part of an underclass. They aren’t allowed the “autonomy” to do what they will with their bodies. Oh no. Tobacco products must be covered in outrageous graphics. They must be hidden behind doors in shops. Soon they will be sold in “plain” packaging, i.e. practically all that will be left are the warnings. Smokers have been banished even from pubs and many other places, possibly soon public parks too, simply because of the myth of the danger from secondhand smoke and the prejudice of the hand-wavers who “don’t like the smell” and the vested interests of those “charities” like ASH, that has been in business for decades by ensuring the slow erosion of the civil liberties of smokers.

Obviously I don’t approve of pregnant women getting plastered. In fact, seeing any woman drunk is unpleasant, even if they think they can do whatever they want with their ‘own bodies’.

I was friends with a woman many, many years ago. During her first pregnancy, she did everything “right” and her son was born a paraplegic so when she discovered she was expecting the second time, she carried on behaving as she had been, heavily smoking roll-ups and drinking large amounts of cider. She gave birth to a very premature and thus dangerously lightweight baby, but who lives on with full bodily functionability.

Not that this proves or disproves anything at all!

But ‘health’ seems to be very misunderstood by everyone concerned from doctors to governments and it seems that all freedoms must be stamped out because of this new ‘holy grail’ of longevity.

It is proving to be very oppressive.

Ban the Burka? Why Not Concentrate on What is Important Instead?

Burka in France
Yet again I tune into Facebook and it is filled with links to Muslim stories. The first two posts from different “friends” were a ban-the-burka article, this time from Australia, and the other about a Muslim in the UK, who said something or other to get our backs up.

I’ve just reached the point where I am utterly sick of reading about Muslims. You know that I am no apologist for Islam. I think it’s a fraud. I don’t want it to influence the culture of my country. But – the UK Government invited millions of Muslims to live here, warts and all, so why the big hoo-ha about burkas?

Because it’s the media playing games with us. Stirring the melting pot. Nobody really cared for decades.

I want to see the media turn their attention to the real culprits – in the UK Government, but they won’t do that because it’s all a con. “New Labour” invited all these Muslims to live here to divide and conquer and to distract from the real issues, like their own treason, the madness of being ruled from Brussels and Geneva, mass immigration and other devices to subvert our culture, the end of our industry and old folk with the Climate Change Act 2008, etc., etc.

In July, The Telegraph went with, “Banning the burka is not racist – it’s a kindness“.

As Islam isn’t a “race”. Oh, never mind.

In other words, many of us are offended and perturbed by the sight of a woman wandering around in a bin bag, condemned to be cut off from normal human interaction in a modern democracy.

I’m not any more offended at seeing said woman as I am encountering a nun. As for being “perturbed,” give me a break. There are far more scary-looking people around town.

And “bin bag”? So drole. So original.

“Modern democracy.” Very witty indeed.

Then on Facebook up comes a story with the opposing view from a “UK Islamist: ‘I Want to See Every Single Woman in This Country Covered from Head to Toe'”.

Frankly, who cares? It’s all media distraction. It’s a con. He’s possibly even a government provocateur.

There are more important things. Far more important. Why does this sort of inane nonsense fill the mainstream media? Oh yes, divide and conquer and distracting the public from what’s important.

How many mainstream articles have you seen over the years calling for the arrests of Blair, Cameron and all the other traitors who have deliberately sabotaged this country?

All we get is rubbish like “bin bags” and “a Muslim said…” and the Daily Mails stories of yet another Muslim family being given a £1.5 million house to live in by the council.

Can’t people see it’s all staged? The councils give the Muslims the huge expensive houses then give the Mail a ring and everyone gets mad with the Muslims. Not the council bosses. Not the Government.

I’m just sick of the fakery of it all and how many people don’t see through this ongoing, relentless scam to divert attention away from what is real and important.

P.S. And I am convinced that most of these “patriot” groups are Establishment fronts. 99% of their ‘concern’ is about Islam. If they really were patriots they would be concentrating on demanding that the criminals who have re-engineered the UK are brought to justice.

Ex-‘Gay’ Man: ‘Homosexuality is Just Another Human Brokenness’

Dean Bailey knows what's best for him.

Dean Bailey knows what’s best for him. Here he is with his family.

I found this story to be of considerable interest. Dean Bailey, 50, like many other people, is proof that ‘sexual orientation’ is not a fixed trait, but can be changed. But he prefers to use the word ‘restored’ rather than ‘changed’.

He turned to other males while a schoolboy to find the affirmation he didn’t receive from his dad, an alcoholic.

Despite his initial problems with women, he did manage to marry and also join the military, but he continued to crave male intimacy and experience gripping same-sex attractions.

“His previous homosexual experiences drove him to seek answers to his insecurities through further homosexual encounters. A downwards spiral ensued as Bailey attempted to satisfy his desires, but only saw them grow in intensity the more he indulged them. Looking back, Bailey now realizes how homosexual acts had become an addiction for him.”

How did he change his life around?

“Bailey credits God for acting powerfully in his life to save him from himself, change his life for the good, and ultimately bring about his deliverance from homosexual attractions. God led him on a journey of trust that ultimately led to the heart of Jesus Christ. Here Bailey experienced the love, acceptance, and affirmation he had always craved.”

He also talked in the interview about counselling for unwanted same-sex desire, which has been outlawed in California and New Jersey and there have been attempts lately to do likewise in the UK. According to the Sex Therapy Bristol Blog, The Counsellors and Psychotherapists (Regulation) Bill stands no chance of becoming law.

The Private Members’ Bill introduced by the Labour MP for Swansea West, Geraint Davies, proposes that psychotherapists and counsellors be registered by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). The HCPC would publish a code of ethics that “must include a prohibition on gay to straight conversion therapy”, and abiding by the code would be a condition of a therapist’s registration.

It gets crazier and crazier. Apparently, many people go to see therapists of their own free will in an attempt to rid themselves of feelings they do not want.

It would be a complete reversal, in about forty years, from same-sex attraction being considered a mental condition to therapists being banned from trying to remove the confusion, even when people want the help and are prepared to pay for it.

Anyway, Stateside and Dean Bailey continues,

“There is no way to fully comprehend or predict the personal cost, effort and sacrifice involved for any individual, until that person embarks upon this journey by personal choice, by his or her own free will. Society should not be expected to make any accommodations for those who therefore refuse to take this journey, and remain trapped in the self-serving cycle of their own dysfunctional sexual behaviors. Nor should responsible parents be denied the lawful ability to seek out the professional help that their children may desperately need and desire. The reality of this entire issue is that homosexuality is a harmful behavior pattern, and not a human identity or a human “right.”

“People often wonder why would the gay activists be trying to outlaw professional means of therapy and counseling for the pursuit of freedom from unwanted homosexual behaviors, if they truly embrace the “tolerance” that they preach? What is it that they are actually so afraid of? I will tell you that what they fear the most is the breakdown and destruction of the inward lies that form the foundation of their own “gay” identity, and everything that the “gay rights” movement has been built upon. That is why gay activists will always insist that this form of dysfunctional sexual behavior is “who” they are. It is the only way for them to remain secure in the falsehood.” (My emphasis.)

His 2011 book “Beyond the Shades of Gray”, tells his life story and most of it is apparently available on his website.

He also speaks publicly about his struggles, telling audiences that homosexuality is a “sexual addiction and dependency,” not a condition to be socially accepted and celebrated. “It is merely one of the many evidences of the broken, spiritual condition of our human race.”

He recommends therapy, but he hasn’t had any himself, but relies solely on his relationship with Christ.”

“Jesus Christ was my counsellor in every aspect of my own journey. After all, he is referred to as “Wonderful Counselor” in the biblical writings that tell us about him.

“God desires to have a personal relationship with me — with each of us — and to become involved in every intricate detail of our lives.

“I credit Jesus with lifting my spirits during the low points of my journey, and with sustaining me through the high points of it. I credit him with sending the right people into my life at just the right time, so that they could love and support me along the way. I credit him with leading me to the right places when I had inward questions and confusion that I could not overcome with just the faith of a simple “Christian” prayer – and, by the way, I do believe that Jesus wants to know our deepest questions.

“The fact is that I don’t know that I could have made such a journey without Jesus walking beside me through it. And I am still on that lifelong journey with him, in spite of what criticisms people will choose to make toward that statement. But I will say this: Jesus has kept the promise he made his disciples, that he would never leave them alone in the journey. I may have felt alone at times. But looking back, I see today that I was never alone.”

No wonder militant homosexuals target Christians. For example, they demand “tolerance” but then misuse the word “bigotry” to use the law to try to force Christian business owners to support homosexual events.

Another interesting exchange goes like this:

LifeSiteNews: “Why do so many people — especially those engaged in the gay lifestyle and those representing left-leaning media — loathe to hear about people like yourself who have left same-sex attraction behind? Do they fear something about your experience? What?”

Bailey: “What they fear about people like me is that our existence and credibility only destroys the very foundation of their own beliefs about themselves, and the reasons behind their own immoral behaviors.”

Of course, it is all part of the agenda to destroy family life in an effort to completely remould nations so they become totally socialist. As Lenin said, “Destroy the family, you destroy the country.”

Bailey: “It is clear to me that a seeming majority of homosexuals actually do believe and adhere to a personal inward ideology that they are fighting for some sort of distorted “equality.” Albeit, their idea of equality could more accurately be described as homo-fascism, because of the way it has become an agenda of forced acceptance and inclusion within our society.

“Spiritually speaking, however, I believe that Satan is the ultimate deceptive force and mastermind behind not just the marriage aspect of their agenda, but also behind the entire distortion that somehow managed to turn a dysfunctional human sexual behavior into a “civil rights” cause.”

I agree with him. He says that many Christians now think that to love people means not to risk offending them.

“People need to better understand what biblical “love” actually is. And, as Christians, we need to also offer the solution. We can’t just say, “Homosexuality is a sin,” and then leave it at that. To be honest, I believe that every homosexual already inwardly knows that what they are doing is inherently contradictory to “who” God created them to be. But they need to be reminded of that fact along with the genuine hope that Christ also offers to each one of us, as we turn to him to overcome all of our human weakness and brokenness, not just the homosexual brokenness.”

Mainstream Christianity: More Pagan than Christian?

Today, Leg-iron writes about various aspects of the calendar and starts off with the news that “The Pope has declared that Halloween is evil. He wants to rename it ‘Holyween’…” and continues with,

Halloween is not a Christian festival. Neither are any of their other festivals, really, but this one is and always has been Pagan.

He’s right. I try to tell Christians, but they think I’m weird. They agree that Christmas is full of Pagan symbolism, but they don’t see the bigger picture as they celebrate their midwinter festival of revelry with their Christmas trees and five-pointed stars atop and perhaps a Yule log underneath and images of Santa everywhere. They start the celebrations at midnight, the witching hour. Churches are rarely as full as they are at the midnight services.

Leg-iron also writes that for the Pagans, “The new day started when the sun went down”. Genesis records the same; the nights came before the days. It’s why the Jews stop working at sunset at the start of the 7th day. And so should Christians. Sunday, as the day of rest, is one of the biggest heresies started by the Catholic church.

It is a Commandment to honour the Sabbath Day. In Matthew, chapter 19, a young man asks the Saviour what he should do to have eternal life. The answer: “if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments” – followed by the instruction that, “If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.” But being rich, he couldn’t cope with that.

From Mark chapter 7:

“6… Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.
7 Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
8 For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do.
9 And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.”

And from 1 John ch. 5:

“1 Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.
2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.
3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.”

After his alleged conversion to Christianity, the Emperor Constantine declared at the First Council of Nicaea in AD 325, that Sunday was the Empire’s day of rest. A few years earlier, he had made Sunday the day of rest to celebrate the “venerable day of the sun”.

How can one reject the Sabbath and embrace the “venerable” first day of the week and be keeping the commandments?

The Pope needs to sort that out and a whole lot of other things, but being the first Jesuit Pope, it ain’t going to happen. As for the ‘Reformers’!

A week after Christmas, the same Christians are saying ‘Happy New Year’ to each other as they celebrate the start of the pagan Roman year on 1st January at the witching hour again. Janus being the Roman god of beginnings and transitions.

You couldn’t make it up!

The End of the ‘Progressive’ Era?

Another day and another fascinating post for discussion from Frank Davis, who writes about the “The End of the Progressive Era” as more people wake up to the lunacy of it after the slippery slopes seem to be never-ending: secondhand smoke and global warming alarmism, ever closer European union, immigration and ‘gay rights’.

He cites other examples of “creeping madness” such as “how one measure of health – longevity – has been gradually amplified to become the sole measure of health” and the proliferation of road signs and markings.

Regular contributor, harleyrider1978, has nailed two issues. The first I hadn’t thought of, but the people have been infantilised to the nth degree via ‘education’ and the media. As has been said a zillion times, children have been taught what to think and not how to think. Television has the added disadvantage of being hypnotic. It is the only way I can think of that so many people have believed so many lies in such a short period of time: mass mind control.

And I was one of them until 2001 when I started ‘waking up’ to the unreality of ‘reality’.

Although I had a splendid education (starting in 1968) – compared with today – it was still, I think, very much modelled around the ‘what to think’ process. Had ‘manmade climate change’ or Stonewall been around, we would have been exposed to the DVDs which were sent to every secondary school in later decades; in this case, “An Inconvenient Truth” and “Fit” from Stonewall.

Incidentally, it took just one parent to take the Government to court over Gore’s lies and he won. Stewart Dimmock didn’t get the outright ban he wanted, but each showing has to be “accompanied by new guidance notes to balance Mr Gore’s partisan views”. It shows what one person can do when they have a sound argument and come up against a sensible judge.

The other concept Harley introduced was God. Blair’s spin doctor, Alastair Campbell famously stated, “We don’t do God,” despite Blair’s claims of being a staunch Christian. Blair also claimed there were WMDs in Iraq. But the problem today is that, as more people and more institutions “don’t do God” then moral relativism replaces absolutes and so there is no conceivable bottom to these slippery slopes because there are no boundaries and together with the mind control surrounding ‘equality’, the moral decline is set to continue.

Same with the mind control about the environment, plus not doing God and what we have is a great many people accepting the propaganda and the legislation, even the huge greenhouse gas emission cuts agreed which will kill our industry and old and poor people. But despite there being no global warming for 18 years (does the mainstream ever mention this other than Mr Delingpole?) half the zombies in the West still believe the Doomsday scenarios. They believe, like Ted Turner in yesterday’s video clip, that there is too much CO2 because there are too many people and because they maybe “don’t do God” they see no special place for man in creation, so without believing in absolutes in morality, humans can be safely disposed of to save all the species allegedly threatened with extinction.

Another factor is fear. It is expedient for our masters to keep us all living in fear. When I was growing up, nuclear war was the biggie. When that subsided, the “War on Terror” was developed and a handful of multi-location attacks engineered to frighten us into believing they were going to be regular events unless we were all considered to be potential terrorists and appropriate ‘police state’ legislation enacted for our ‘safety’, but now we constantly read about “another al Qaeda plot exposed” before it’s too late. Phew!

Nowadays, the fearmongering has just become silly, probably due to the hypnotic TV again (And fake ‘Truthers’ like Alex “CIA” Jones!). People are scared of totally non-existent threats because they have been dumbed down to believe anything and all too often have no faith to put into perspective man’s special place on this planet and faith also aids in reducing worry, as well as engendering hope and being mindful of each other and understanding that there is something bigger than government. I often quote Lenin, but he does give the socialist game away just as Albert Pike exposes the real purpose of Freemasonry.

Lenin said that, “Our programme necessarily includes the propaganda of atheism,” and it’s exactly the same for the creeping total socialist takeover we are being subjected to through the UN, EU, etc.

One of my favourite verses from scripture is 1 John 4:18, “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.”

One of our masters’ greatest tools, divide and conquer, involves fear and loathing, not love, so naturally, people must be ‘protected’ from the “bigotry” of Christianity, by legislation if necessary, as we increasingly see, but the real reasons are the opposite to the ones given.

We read cases like the baker in Colorado who has been ordered against his beliefs and conscience to bake cakes for ‘gay weddings’ (he will be monitored!) and has been told to attend reeducation lessons.

‘Progressive’ just means getting rid of what gels communities and countries together to replace it all with moral relativism (and thereby introduce any new legislation the government/EU/UN deems appropriate) and to induce fear after fear, reduce loyalty to one’s country, create division and hatred (including within families) and extinguish hope so that all eyes look to the powers that be for all the answers, which are, naturally, the wrong answers.

The Decline and Fall of the West

I am picking up on today’s post, Sanity and Insanity, from Frank Davis, who is reporting on the EU’s economic suicide to agree to massive CO2 emission cuts. He has also posted a very creepy short segment of an interview with Ted Turner. It all leads to the same conclusion: the one I have been banging on about.

As Frank says, “Have a listen to Ted Turner talking about climate change. It’s only a minute long. And remember that this is the guy who gave $1 billion to the WHO”:

But these people know exactly what they are doing. Turner actually scared me like I was watching a horror film when he started talking about depopulation in such a cold, calculated and factual way.

It’s too many of the saps out here who are mad for not seeing through the charade by now, but they gather their ‘news’ from the likes of Turner’s networks. Turner is probably just a low-grade elite – $1 billion is absolutely nothing. But he knows the endgame: a World government and massive depopulation.

This is why the EU will readily sacrifice our economies and futures. To impoverish us is to empower the elites even further. Labour’s Climate Change Act 2008 committed the UK to reducing our greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80% by 2050 (compared to the 1990 ‘baseline’, which seems a weird way to arrange it) so we have these apparently insane leaders saying and doing crazy things in every country. But they are specially groomed for the job and being drunk with power makes them feel so good that they’ll go along with anything to keep their positions.

It’s the reason that UKIP scares me because the same people run everything popular and because the elites write the script and plan many decades ahead, they know what public opinion will be, so they can arrange the ‘opposition’ before the real opposition gets started.

I vote UKIP in the hope that I’m wrong and that it is so full of ordinary people who believe in freedom and UK sovereignty that they won’t allow the leadership to renege on anything if and when the time comes for them to take the reins of what’s left of the UK.

But the grassroots support of the mainstream parties is at odds with the leaderships, because those leaders are chosen/compromised for their ability to craftily fool the voters. And the people are still stupid. Cameron gave a ‘cast-iron’ guarantee of an EU referendum then gets into Number 10 and imposed a three-line whip on the vote in the Commons to ensure that we didn’t get one then within several months (I think) he’s promising that if the Tories are reelected there will definitely be a referendum in the distant future. And they believe him.

He’s not even charismatic; slightly better than ‘damp rag’ Van Rompuy, but people like comforting lies and the “devil you know” so don’t want change. And a very large minority/small majority will believe anything, like the need to destroy our industry to ‘save the planet’ and these same people probably won’t mind that vast numbers of old folks will die of cold in future winters due to exorbitant prices and intermittent power supplies. Not just old folks either from now on. Whole families will be found dead, their bodies huddled together in their living room in a last-gasp attempt to stay alive after they lost their jobs and the benefits system collapsed – and the forecast of a new ice age was correct!

People can’t add 2 + 2 and get 4 now. They’ll believe any tripe that comes out of the idiot box if it’s said by someone in a suit and a posh accent. They esteem as worthless their own lifetime of experiences and intelligence in favour of what the ‘experts’ trot out to declare imminent disasters of Biblical proportions unless we all ‘tackle’ climate change and the obesity ‘ticking time bomb’ and the smoking ‘epidemic’ and the ‘bigotry’ and the vastly increased threat of war by the existence of sovereign nations, etc.

Turner knows what he’s doing. He’s a lapdog really. Probably trying to suck up to the real elites hoping to dine at the Captain’s table when it’s all over. Not that he’ll likely still be alive then, although they are moving quickly.

They are mad – barking mad – but psychopaths can’t understand that. And the masses have also lost their mind on too much bread and circuses provided by the likes of Turner and his ‘entertainment’.

But people never change. Juvenal (from whom we get ‘bread and circuses’) warned the ancient Romans that they were losing their duty to hold their leaders to account. E.g. in Rome they had a grain dole – free grain for the Romans and expensive entertainment laid on to keep the natives satisfied enough not to bother revolting. Seems it’s exactly the same in the West today.

In its review of Edward Gibbon’s “The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire”, one sentence in Wikipedia perhaps sums up why the empire collapsed:

According to Gibbon, the Roman Empire succumbed to barbarian invasions in large part due to the gradual loss of civic virtue among its citizens.

A case of déjà vu.
