The storylines…

Italy:  Grillo deals with his Senators using the secret ballot to betray the assured discipline.

Cyprus:  a bank run follows demands for a 10% tax on balances.  ATMs run dry, really brilliantly played by elites who do not understand modern communication.  (Of course, maybe they do and this is a warning to other countries – looking at you Italy?  We’ll find out shortly…)

Germany: Cyprus--tax your depositors.  And troubles with Salafism.

France: Hollande drops below Le Pen in the polls.

Greece:  a soccer story. 

Portugal—bought some more time.

Greater Celtia: St. Patrick’s day drinking.

US—Sid “Vicious” has his AOL account hacked, thousands of emails, mostly involving Hillary, downloaded.  Media reports the hacker, named Guccifer, also connected to the defacing of Colin Powell’s facebook et al, and the Bush family internet account, amongst others; alleged to subscribe to theories about the Federal Reserve, the Illuminati, the Council on Foreign Relations, and Bohemian Grove sorts.

Apparently, the elite’s frontmen have AOL accounts; it’s always 1997 to these people.

 

Some Articles of Interest

The allegedly “conservatively” oriented Readers Digest has filed for bankrupcy. Lew Rockwell says they were a CIA front. (The Rockwell allegation is in the linked article.)

If the economy is recovering, why are so many retail chains closing stores?

This article discusses factions within the “Liberty Movement.” It covers the recent Students for Liberty conference. Can Rep. Justin Amash bring them together?

23 Feb 13 will be a “Day of Resistance” to gun control.

 

Some Articles for Your Consideration

Norquist says fiscal cliff deal is “technically” a tax cut. I say Norquist is technically FOS. His rationalization is pure sophistry.

Here are the five Republican Senators who voted no on the fiscal cliff. My two Georgia Senators were not on the list. Hopefully Saxby (Taxby) Chamblis will have a primary challenger in 2014.

Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.), Mike Lee (Utah), Richard Shelby (Ala.), and Chuck Grassley (Iowa).

Democrat moves to block Congressional pay raise. I believe Barrow is the last white Democrat to represent a non-minority majority district in the Deep South. He won a close race this time by spending a lot of money and running a very populists campaign. This will add to his populist street cred.

Here is the House roll call for the fiscal cliff deal. Every Republican from my state voted no along with Democrat Barrow discussed above. Ron Paul did not vote. In general the Redder the state the more likely the Republican delegation was to vote no, and the Bluer vice versa.

Boehner to resign?

Or to be challenged?

Update: It looks like Boehner will hold on.

“Regional Equity”—Obama’s Coming War On Whitopias

“Regional Equity”—Obama’s Coming War On Whitopias

By Jesse Mossman, September 27, 2012, VDare

Paul Kersey recently reported on VDARE.com an emerging trend: for white suburbs to secede from larger urban jurisdictions and so form, in effect, whitopian enclaves.

But he did not mention that there are powerful forces on the other side pushing back hard—using a concept called “Regional Equity.”

Americans can be forgiven for not being familiar with Regional Equity. I had not heard the term myself until just a few weeks ago, when I caught Stanley Kurtz on the radio talking about his new book: Spreading the Wealth: How Obama is Robbing the Suburbs to Pay for the Cities.

Put Regional Equity into a search engine and the language of the collectivists surfaces: transportation equity, environmental equity, healthcare equity, social justice, smart growth, and especially, sustainable communities.

The essence of Regional Equity is the use of centralized political power make things equal over regions—disregarding jurisdictions.

President Obama is very much on board with the Regional Equity movement.

When Treason Becomes The Norm: Why The Proposition Nation, Not Islam, Is Our Primary Enemy

Everyone should read this essay in its entirety:

When Treason Becomes The Norm: Why The Proposition Nation, Not Islam, Is Our Primary Enemy

Fjordman, Gates of Vienna

In 2009 it was revealed that the ruling Labour Party had purposefully flooded Britain with several million immigrants, without consulting its citizens, in order to socially engineer a “truly Multicultural” country. The huge increases in migrants over the previous decade were partly due to a politically motivated attempt to radically change the country and to “rub the Right’s nose in diversity,” according to Andrew Neather, a former adviser to Prime Minister Tony Blair. He said mass immigration was the result of a deliberate plan, but ministers were reluctant to discuss this for fear that it would alienate the party’s “core working class vote.”

Lord Glasman — a personal friend of the Labour Party leader — in 2011 stated that “Labour lied to people about the extent of immigration… and there’s been a massive rupture of trust.” He admitted that the Labour Party had sometimes been actively hostile to the white natives. In particular, they tended to view white working-class voters as “an obstacle to progress.”

To my knowledge, these shocking revelations of a Western government virtually launching a full-front attack to crush its own people have so far not caused a single word of protest from political leaders or mass media in any other Western country, although these acts could be construed as a policy of state-sponsored ethnic cleansing targeting the white majority population. In my country’s mass media, these public admissions from Neather were hardly mentioned at all, although journalists never miss an opportunity to warn against the dangerous tide of “white racism and xenophobia” that is supposedly sweeping the Western world today.

Derek Turner’s Sea Changes

What Was Once A Nation: John Derbyshire On Derek Turner’s Sea Changes

John Derbyshire, August 1, 2012

Englishman Derek Turner is the editor of Quarterly Review, a transatlantic paleocon magazine with excellent articles on culture, history, and politics, and some contributor overlap with U.S. outlets like Chronicles, Taki’s Magazine, and, yes, VDARE.com.

Sea Changes is Derek’s first book. It is a work of fiction—a novel, written as a straightforward narrative in the third person. Its claim on the attention of VDARE.com readers is that it is a story about illegal immigration into Britain, and about contemporary attitudes to questions of nation, race, and liberty.

At the center of the story is a young Iraqi man, Ibraham Nassouf, born around 1979. Though drawn sympathetically, and obviously a decent sort, Ibraham is undistinguished and ill-educated, an observant but unreflecting Muslim—an Everyman, a traditional novelist’s lay figure.

At age 12, Ibraham lost his father to one of Saddam’s purges. After two decades of struggling to support his mother and sisters in Iraq, through the 2003 U.S. invasion and the years of turmoil that followed, Ibraham decides to head for England. Having no contacts in that country and no claim on a British visa, he must contrive to get smuggled in, after having first somehow traversed all the intervening countries.

Ibraham’s odyssey across the Middle East and Europe forms a separate narrative thread for the first two-thirds of the novel, alternating with chapters set among English people in England. The two threads meet when Ibraham makes landfall on England’s east coast. The concluding nine chapters of the novel deal with our hero’s reception and settlement.

While Ibraham’s adventures are described with realism and sensitivity, at its heart Sea Changes is a commentary on the ethnomasochism and corroded sense of national identity in today’s England—and, by extension, in the West at large.

Most of the people we meet in the book are metropolitan media types, vain and shallow, their heads filled with the vapid cant of multiculturalism. They are contrasted with the very un-metropolitan Dan Gowt, a countryman of old English stock, farming on the east coast near Ibrahim’s eventual landfall.

I Have Returned From Vacation … a Few Links

Here are a few articles I have found as I have been perusing the Internet to see what I missed while I was away.

Here is Daniel Larison on the cognitive disconnect among those who oppose globalism on one hand but support interventionism on the other.

Here is Daniel Larison on what the “Obamacons” will do this year. I’ll have more to say on this separately. See my comments on the post for a taste.

Heard talk of Condi for Veep? Pat Buchanan blows this silly nonsense out of the water.

Here’s Jim Antle on the battle between spending hawks and defense hawks.
