Easter Day

April 20, 2014 11 Comments

There are three interesting articles on Christianity at the Spectator, obviously occasioned by Easter. If we can pass over the pagan aspects of the fertility rite to the Christian/Passover, today is clearly the one upon which the entire faith rests. Historians don’t seriously question the historicity of Jesus of Nazareth but they do fall out over the arising. For the people of the time, the arising is certainly the clincher…

Oppression depends on the ambition of the wannabe

April 17, 2014 5 Comments
By

There’s a vid below by Bill Whittle which you may or may not wish to watch – it’s U.S. specific, it’s tea partyish and yet it also touches on a universal truth: The elite in any society cannot oppress without an army of small people who are wannabee big people and who imagine themselves special. Two immediate examples spring to mind, one stemming from the other. First is that old…

The 34th State

April 14, 2014 1 Comment
By

A move in the US we should perhaps be aware of: Last week Michigan’s legislature voted and passed a resolution calling for a Constitutional Convention. They are the 34th state to do so, and this should trigger the Convention of the States. Pretty major, yet the MSM is ignoring it. Under Article 5 of the US Constitution, if 2/3rds of the states call for such a convention, (meaning 34 states)…

How the EU coerces national legislation

It was easy to debunk Clegg’s lie about the 7% – a very silly ploy on his part, trying the “primary legislation” subterfuge. Below is a post by IPJ from 2010, explaining how EU directives become our laws: August 28th, 2010 When politicians explain that laws are made in Westminster they are only giving you a half truth, so please ask them to explain what I am about to show…

Who’s your favourite world leader?

Ahead of tonight’s debate, The Lib Dem Independent tried to canvass people’s opinions on world leaders. Question – who’s your favourite? As Wiggia, who sent it to me, said: “They should never have asked. LOL.”

When we can’t even pinpoint the enemy, how can we deal with them?

When we can’t even pinpoint the enemy, how can we deal with them?

This headline is not being reiterated here to reinforce what the deep-captured media is trying to do but rather to debunk it: Britain faces food price rises, floods and deadly heatwaves This is alarmism of the worst kind, so unnecessary. Global banks issue alerts on China carry trade Meanwhile, what is supposed to be the good news is faked: Osborne: Britain is walking tall again Following various posts here on…

The raison d’etre of Orphans of Liberty in one Andrew Bolt article

March 29, 2014 2 Comments
By

Couldn’t resist, sorry, bringing this from downunder, from Andrew Bolt, on free speech – seems it’s an issue down there too. From a speech in parliament: What we have just heard from Senator Wong and what we have heard constantly from those opposite, including the Greens, relies on a profound misunderstanding of what our society is. They seem to view our rights, particularly our right to speech and our right…

Gay “marriage”

March 29, 2014 14 Comments
By

Someone has to say something about this faux argument. It’s a personal view, not a position OoL necessarily takes one way or the other. There was a comment I responded to in a thread on gay “marriage”, as crowbarred through by Cameron and masters: There are many different kinds of family, James and perhaps mothers recognise this. To which I responded: Many different kinds, all heterosexual by biological definition. Otherwise…

Britain

March 27, 2014 Comments Off

This is put as a discussion piece rather than as dogma. There are those who think about their ethnicity and nationhood and those who don’t.   Those who don’t are usually content with a couple of pints, the football, the great god shopping or whatever but not socio-political questions.   This is especially so in good times.   People tend to be more expansive and tolerant in those times. It…

Hacked conversation Estonian Foreign Minister and Catherine Ashton

The youtube blurb ran: Officers of Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) loyal to the ousted President Viktor Yanukovich have hacked phones of Estonian Minister of Foreign Affairs Urmas Paet and High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton and leaked their conversation to the web. The officials discuss their impressions of what’s happening in the country after the revolution. The gist of it is…

What Tymochenko really thinks of her people

March 25, 2014 6 Comments
By

Our correspondent Russ reports an interesting conversation between Yulia Tymochenko and Deputatat and National Security Council member of the Ukraine, Nestor Shufrich, “after the Maidan dissapointment at the Crimean referendum result.” The FSB of Russia hacked the phone call, which has now gone viral. Most Russians interviewed leading up to the referendum had sentiments along the line of the Ukrainian leadership seeing them as second class citizens. It’s something you’d…

The taking of Kindi hospital in Aleppo

March 23, 2014 3 Comments
By

Here’s the sanitized version by the Beeb: Rebels in the Syrian city of Aleppo have set off a massive suicide lorry bomb to seize back a strategic ruined hospital occupied by Assad loyalists. A huge fireball engulfed the al-Kindi Hospital, the blast bringing down the central section of the disused building, in Friday’s daylight attack. Militants driving up in an armoured personnel carrier later piled into one of its wings.…

For GCHQ, are we the terrorists?

For GCHQ, are we the terrorists?

The Joint Threat Research Intelligence Group (JTRIG) is a unit of the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ), the British intelligence agency .[1] The existence of JTRIG was revealed as part of the global surveillance disclosures in documents leaked by the former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden.[2] To be fair, many of the questions which immediately spring to mind would have equally applied to past governments and insofar as it is the defence of the realm involved – then there’s a case for…

Black Sea – keep an eye on the gas

A quite timely take on the events in the Crimean region is at Sackerson’s place. You can read the fine print there but in essence, this Wiki map of the gas pipelines is more than interesting in the context of the political games and grandstanding: Apart from the new ports and infrastructure developed through the Sochi Olympics and with the acquisition of the Crimea again, Russia is in a position…
