Duly Noted - We Hide Behind Ethics-For-Show

Duly Noted

“Higher Values” exploited to Justify Convenient Inaction.

 

While growing-up in the happy realm of the Soviet Union’s “outer empire”, one was harangued with the assertion that “western decadence” guarantees “final victory”. That trait was attributed to capitalism, which was condemned to death by its [...]

Duly Noted - Plain Talk About the Plane

Duly Noted

It is unwise, as it might take one toward misleading results, to investigate a case in a manner that limits the inquiry towards one’s first impression.

On the other hand, if it looks like a duck, if it sounds like a duck, if it walks [...]

WarAndGoldKwasiKwartenComes now to respectful international attention a volume entitled War and Gold: A 500-Year History of Empires, Adventures, and Debt by Member of Parliament Kwasi Kwarteng.

Muslim Kills Teacher in Front of Class

 

mthrkldIt was headlining AOL on Friday, a story about a woman stabbing a schoolteacher to death in front of a class of five and six-year-olds. The gruesome and bloody crime occurred in the southern French town of Albi; the victim was a 34-year-old mother of two.

Duly Noted - Don't Worry: Just Look the Other Way

Duly Noted

Jihadism has declared war on all other systems, ways of life and cultures. Ignoring that excuses the momentary denial of the implications. There is a reason; confronting such threats contradicts PC-approved “solutions”.

News suppression is the preferred approach of our political elites who shun the [...]

Why Syria? Why Gaza?

bshralasdIt’s just been made public that various leaders in the UK drew up plans to equip and train a force of up to 100,000 “rebels” to fight against President Bashar al-Assad’s regime in Syria. (That figure of 100,000 Syrian rebels is interesting: the Free Syrian Army only [...]

The Deputy PM and & the Hoax Moderates of the Muslim Council of Britain

nckclgWhat’s hard to understand is why almost every time a British national newspaper (especially The Independent and The Guardian) publishes an article about some Muslim-related issue (say, the Islamisation of schools or, way back, the Danish cartoons) it either quotes the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) or [...]

“I hope England gets stuffed at the World Cup,” says English Muslim

rshmhmslhThe level of visceral hatred in Roshan Muhammed Salih’s article, ‘I hope Italy stuffs England at the World Cup’, is disturbing. There’s enough hate in it to make a Muslim want to become… well, a terrorist. That hatred is very much like that of MPACUK’S Asghar Bukhari; [...]

The Guardian says: There is no Islamist School-takeover Plot

islmcschlsRichard Adams (TheGuardian‘s ‘education editor’) sort of gives the game away when he says that the “Trojan horse affair” has “race” as part of its “Birmingham-sized bundle”. (In his article: ‘Is the Trojan horse row just a witch hunt triggered by a hoax?’) Apart from the fact [...]

Tea Party Revolution Taking Place in England

ukip2Something remarkable is taking place in our mother country. Late last month, a third party on the right overtook both major political parties in a national election, as significantly more people in England voted for the right over the left. The UK Independence Party (UKIP) [...]

Unite Against Capitalism…Fascism (UAF)

uafIn the UK there’s an organisation, by the name Unite Against Fascism (UAF), which says that its primary aim is to “fight against racism and fascism”. This is what it says on the tin: “We believe that these dangers [“fascism” and “racism”] require a strong and united [...]

White Leftists on UKIP’s Black Uncle Toms

ukipThe UK Independence Party (UKIP) is almost on the verge of toppling a two-party (sometimes three-party) monopoly in British politics which goes back to the 19thcentury.

UKIP – which was formed as long ago as 1993 – calls from a withdrawal from the European Union (EU) [...]

A madness, thought to be banished into the sealed coffin of bygone times, is reemerging. The returning Dracula threatens the destruction of the procedural order that preventively canalizes conflicts among advanced nations. Some [...]

Duly Noted - Mighty Country, Weak People, Powerful State, Subject Masses

A common gene connects the dominant systems of the past; they were mostly dictatorships. Rarely could a major power be rated, by the standards of its time, as free. Applying [...]

London Mayor Boris Johnson For President? Welcome to the UKSA!

brsjhnsnThis columnist’s admiration for Senator Rand Paul is driven, in part, by Sen. Paul’s consistent and honorable stand against the “warfare/welfare state.” Rising-star national talk radio host, and columnist, Steve Deace astutely observes in a recent Washington Times op-ed, “he’s the only candidate running that is attempting [...]

Duly Noted - Freedom is Not For Free

Duly Noted

Aggression must also have a price.

The Ukraine is one of those places that conventional education encourages the West to ignore. As taught, history and politics can write off a region because it is tagged as “confusing”. All nations are complicated; therefore, that [...]

Duly Noted - Russia and Crimea: Have You Read Enough?

Duly NotedIf you think so, you need to reconsider.

 

The initial endeavor of newsmen is to “tell all”. Except when the gathering of information imperils the journalist’s life, that is the easy part. Alas, the bare facts get the public bored. By the [...]

Examining Russia’s Crimean Problem

 

As a major power Russia has always had a problem. That problem is its coastline, or rather the lack thereof. Compare it to America and its three coasts, all of which have numerous warm water port facilities, and the problem becomes stark. Russia has a lot of coast, but much of it is either [...]

Duly Noted - About Russian Matters, Because Russia Matters

Duly NotedPast aggression is resolutely fought but the present’s cases are met with restraint.

 

Much that comments upon Russia’s Crimean adventure is self-serving. Some moves are made to act as excuses to:

(1) Maintain the moral high ground while

(2) A costly response is avoided [...]

An aberration’s path from rejection to tolerance and then to approval.

 

Success, especially when inherited and not earned, stimulates arrogance. The so cursed think themselves to be immune from the consequences of errors that they exclude them from the realm of the [...]

Find out why the operators of guided democracy begin to fear their peoples.

 

Precarious is the existence of small countries because they are easily overlooked. Would we knowingly crush a worm crossing the sidewalk? Not seeing the little fellow, we take the step to [...]

Neocon Things That Make You Go Hmmm...

As a Southern paleocon who has often argued with Unionist neocons over the virtue of the Union invasion of the South and the merits of Lincoln, the current events taking place in Ukraine and the neocons’ reaction to it has me scratching my head. Let’s see…

Neocons, especially those of the Straussian variety, allegedly oppose [...]

Duly Noted - A Revolt of the Masses

Duly Noted

This installment of Duly Noted departs from the posting’s usual pattern. A seemingly small event has occurred that sheds light on what might be, a yet partially hidden, long-term trend of fundamental significance.

The venue of the deed is Switzerland. That country might be [...]

Duly Noted - New Tags for Old Problems

Duly Noted Inventive labels do not heal what they cover up.

Labels can change an object’s perceived meaning while the traits of the verbally recycled item remain unchanged. Through this process, the good is redone as bad, black may mute into white, and [...]

Duly Noted - Coercion and Concord

Duly NotedA contemporary tale told in the past tense.

In 2014, the world recalls the “Great War” of 1914. Already the gap between the terminology used then, and the rating applied now, are thought provoking. The Great War held its title for twenty years. Then, [...]
