Germany, Disunified

Bibi Wilhailm is 16-years-old, German, beautiful and afraid. Of what? Of walking down the damned street.

Here, she elaborates. In German with English translation.



The poor girl goes out of her way not to appear to be xenophobic or against refugees. All she wants is to not be molested in her own country and for the elected leaders of Germany to stop facilitating rapists. Oh and she expects German men to behave like men. I don't think that's to much to ask.

Last week, it was widely reported that the German government had lost track of 600,000 of the so-called refugees. Germany's interior minister now denies this--contradicting himself--but Germany's government seems to have difficulty acknowledging reality, so who knows?

And, of course, the US government is no better.

We all know about Germany's 20th century history of extremism--deadly. But the purposeful influx of members of a culture who view women as property and as spoils of war is still another example of German extremism. Deadly, as well.

Genocide or suicide: are these the only two modes of thinking for German leaders? There has to be a whole lot of middle ground between systematically killing a group of people and allowing hordes of another group into that same country to ravage its women--and, no doubt, men.

But I think that German Chancellor Angela Merkel knows what she's doing: creating intentional chaos. But why? It's almost as if she wants Germans to revert to the ways of their grandparents.

Something else occurred to me yesterday. We all know that President Obama is intent on bringing the same types of groups into the US and we also remember that the US has been accused of spying on Germany; on Merkel in particular. I wonder if Merkel's actions are related to this.

Unwise

This is a very interesting op-ed by Laura Ingraham. She admonishes the National Review, which, last week, officially came out against the GOP presidential candidacy of Donald Trump.

However, I think that many, many conservatives are making a huge mistake: conflating political ideology with a person-persona who mouths those ideologies but who has not lived them and/or incorporated them in his professional life.

Only religious ideologies are and should be embodied in individuals. Think Jesus the Christ or Mohammed.

Ingraham, no dummy by a long shot, implicitly does this also--perhaps knowingly--and I think I know why: because it won't matter when voting time comes around. She just wants the conservative side to win--what's left of that side.

But is winning everything? See: 114th Congress and its actions since being seated.

I believe that there is, in actuality, only one side left. All else is theater.

How Writing Things are Going

At the end of this month, I'm going to cease selling paperbacks of my novel for an indefinite period. E-books only. So if you want an *autographed* copy, you can get it at my site until January 31. However, if you buy it at Amazon, I can't autograph it.

After the 31st, it will be Kindle only until I can find a local publisher. My last two publishers were small and on the east coast; communications were spotty for that reason.

Again:

Autographed Paperbacks here.

Kindle Here.

I'm re-tooling Arlen's Harem, using some old writings recently found. The new concoction will probably not be called Arlen's Harem, but I may change my mind again.

Also I may do a video blah blah every now and then. 5 minutes max. I promise

Another Super Hero for Blacks

These people, I swear...

In commentary to the flap about no black actors being nominated for this year's Academy Award, actress and Fox News commentator Stacey Dash opined that the USA should get rid of Black History Month. No biggy to me. Symbolic gestures have their place, but sometimes they are pointless and BHM has become that.

Here's the deal: what good does it do to learn long-ago black history if black men and women don't make sure that their children understand how important their more recent heritage is? And how is that accomplished? By getting married. As things stand right now for black Americans in 2016 and for the last 50 years, there are as many black ancestry lines which disappear into a fog as there were back before the Civil War.

Back on topic. Dash is part black and because of her opinion, comedian John Fugelsang--who is white--had this to say about her. 
He's getting quite the pummeling--including from me--but I'm guessing that he doesn't understand the reaction at all. And to be honest, I wouldn't know where to begin to explain because, likely, his faulty assumptions are Legion.

I can only think to go to the foundation: [insert tribe here] supremacy. All tribal supremacy doctrines hold that tribes--or races, if you will--have certain individual ways of thinking which are DNA-specific, to all members of an individual tribe and which have rank; some tribes' ways of thinking are better than others, that is.

This is Fugelsang's unconscious assumption, unconscious being the operative word. Another one is that, no matter what year it is, it's always 1968. He probably feels persecuted, poor thing.

Strategy for Tyranny (UPDATED)

A reminder: Fast and Furious isn’t just a movie.
The Fast and Furious operation involved federal agents allowing criminals to buy guns with the intention of tracking them. 
Instead, agents from the ATF lost track of 1,400 of the 2,000 guns involved in the sting operation. 
The operation allowed criminals to buy guns in Phoenix-area shops with the intention of tracking them once they made their way into Mexico.
The arrest of Sinaloa cartel head El Chapo uncovered a .50-caliber rifle. This weapon was traced directly to the Obama Administration’s Fast and Furious program.
When agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives checked serial numbers of the eight weapons found in his possession, they found one of the two .50-caliber weapons traced back to the ATF program, sources said.
But the one rifle is only the tip of the iceberg.
Out of the roughly 2,000 weapons sold through Fast and Furious, 34 were .50-caliber rifles that can take down a helicopter, according to officials.
Glenn reminds us that
…the purpose of [Fast and Furious] was to put weapons in Mexican gangsters’ hands that could be traced back to American sales, as a pretext for stricter gun regulations here. They were willing to accept increased deaths as collateral damage.
The concept of increased deaths needs to be spelled out. Not only was the Obama Administration willing to accept increased deaths of Mexican citizens, but also American citizens. Fast and Furious was a part of a long-term plan—a strategic plan.

Whole Armor of God (ht: Voice of the Watchman)
Confiscation of all firearms from all law-abiding American citizens would give the advantage to those who refuse to abide by the law: those who wish to take what’s yours, all the way up to and including your life. There are thousands and thousands of individual predators in this country who would rejoice at such an opportunity, but the gangs are the ones which are most troubling.  We’ve seen that in Europe recently, and those predators are armed only with their penises.

A nation-wide confiscation of firearms would free up street gangs like MS-13 and Mexican cartels to rampage and battle over turf. And let’s not forget that there are many Islamic groups in the USA which lie in wait. Here's one.

Such a confiscation would lead to nation-wide chaos and that is what it is intended to do. And who will the law-abiding—those left alive—look to for rescue? Government. Such a scenario is a perfect pretext for martial law. (Note the spelling of ‘martial.’)

Short-term thinking abounds. But the enemy thinks in the long-term. And I’m not talking about the puppeteers of the Obama Administration…well, not only them.

UPDATE: Just found out from Maetenloch at Ace's place that one of the terrorists at last year's Draw Muhammad contest in Texas also had a Fast and Furious weapon: a 9-mm pistol.

Taking the Mote Out of my Own Eye

Busy today being a better steward of the things I have left.

I have been writing in the past week or so, as usual at Da Tech Guy.

Ordering my thinking

Stupidity and how to recognize it

Loss and Gain

…Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD.
--Job 1:21

Through a miscommunication with Public Storage, I lost the bulk of my personal belongings via lien sale. So every earthly thing I have is in my apartment with me. The bad news: I lost many items which had sentimental value: my great-aunt’s old crystal stemware, her cast-iron skillets, and a file of sentimental papers—e.g. a hand-made card from the child of an old friend. But the only thing I’m really alarmed about is the fact that I lost one of my old laptops which had a lot of information on it. I lost my cedar desk and file cabinet. I lost the old-school stereo that I tried to sell for months; years if you go all the way back to 2013.


I lost my Great Book volumes…and most of my clothing, including a set of Saks Fifth Avenue short boots which I bought in 1985. Sixty dollar they cost, which I thought was a fortune then. They earned their keep, however, and served me well for thirty years, so I can’t complain too much about that. I hope another lady likes them as much as I did.

Blessedly, I removed most of my personal papers from the unit a while back, and not a few other items of sentimental value.

But, yes, I cried my eyes out when I found out.

This is not a plea for replacement, but a musing on Things. I spent a lot of time--and money--trying to keep my property. But now it’s not mine and I’m looking around at the Things I still “have” and think these things can be taken also, even the clothes I’m wearing and the laptop I’m using to type this. If the new owner of “my” things is unscrupulous, my very identity can be sold and besmirched.

I’m done crying about it or even worrying about it, however. As it happens, I had been praying hard in the last few days, asking God to show me what He wanted me to do for His Kingdom while I’m still on earth. I don’t know, but I think He’s letting me know that there are more important things to give my time to than worrying about how to keep the things which will eventually rot and rust.

I’m not going to lie; this is very painful. But I learned a long time ago that, sometimes, God’s blessings don’t always feel too good. As a matter of fact, those which really sting at the beginning are usually the ones which, in hindsight, have the most long-lasting benefit.

I want to thank all of you who, over the last year, tried to help me keep my stuff. I hope you don’t think you wasted your money. If it helps at all, you taught me that many of you care about the things which cannot be taken away and you taught me about love and friendship. And family.

God bless all of you.

Am I Crazy?

Have you ever watched something unfold but said nothing or little because you felt it would be pointless, that no one would listen and/or that you would be ridiculed? For years, that was me. And the idea that I might be persecuted by the government crossed my mind as well.

As I get closer to God, however, I’m finding that I don’t care.

I’m trying to figure out if there is a political/mental/spiritual connection to the 20th century genocides in European, conducted by European leaders, and 21st century Europe’s apparent willingness to allow millions of Muslim immigrants into its “countries,” along with allowing thousands of European women to be raped by these same immigrants. Both seem like strategic methods of “perfecting” a population--shaping a population's size and composition to quantities and qualities desired.

Looking at the decades of unchecked illegal immigration in America, the effects of the Great Society mindset on—disproportionately--black Americans, and the plan to insert hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees into the American population, one might conclude that our population is being “perfected” as well.

And let’s not forget that both European and American women have been aborting their children for quite some time.

This is an ingenious form of warfare, people, especially that last tactic.

There are a lot of people out there who have been saying for decades that this world is ruled by hidden actors—the un-hidden George Soros notwithstanding. They are ridiculed as Conspiracy Theorists. It’s alleged that these Hidden Actors want the world to be much smaller in population—easier to control that way—and have been, for centuries, influencing events to that end. Crazy, no? ::::winks::::

I don’t know. I do know that European and American leaders demonstrably do not have the interests of their respective constituents at heart. Looking at what they have allowed...no, looking at what they have perpetrated on their populations, it is reasonable to wonder who their constituents really are.

Keeping it Clean

With the Instapundit link to yesterday's post, I have new readers and some new donations. Thank you!

However, if you would prefer not to donate money, I have something else I could really use. These next photos were taken right outside my front window.



My landlords clean it when they are here, but you know the deal--it's back to being trashed not a day later. Apartment dwellers. As a former home-owner, I know that the Broken Windows theory of Law Enforcement also applies to trash. Crap begets more crap. I'm certain also, that it contributes not a small amount to my battle with unwanted, six-legged guests. (I'm winning that one. My floors stay clean.)

So I want to take it upon myself to maintain a bit of order in this one little area I can help control. If you would like to contribute a Trash Grabber Tool for it, this one is my preference. It's also on my wishlist. Thanks!

Fundraiser continues until goal is met.

FUNDRAISER UPDATE: The goal is $1500 in sales and donations by December 31. As of today at 12:30 PM PT, there have been 19 donations totaling $1339.00 and one sale totaling $10.99, for a grand total of $1349.99. Almost there. Thank you!

Exposure: BLMs Love White People (UPDATED)

Hey, Collective White People! Here’s a little secret. Black Lives Matter types, NAACP, Congressional Black Caucus, New Black Panther Party sorts, etc.—I’m shortening this to BLMs--may come get me after I tell it, but I will take my chances. And, after all, even if they come get me, the secret will already be out. So here it is.

Are you ready?

BLMs love you, Collective White People. How do I know this? Because they care so much about
Because it's Trek and sexier than the kiss
what all of you think of Collective Black People; they care about how Collective Black People look in your collective eyes.

How do I know this? Years of being told by black leftists that “they”—meaning you, Collective White People—are laughing at black conservatives for putting forth conservative viewpoints. I mean, even if you were, who gives a rats? I don’t love the collective you, white people. But since BLMs do love you and since they do think collectively—think tribally—at all times and under all circumstances, they think that all black people think this way, and, therefore, think that black conservatives believe what we believe out of this same type of love for you, Collective White People.

Trust me, I know for a fact that a great number of individuals among you, Collective White People, are jackholes, and, therefore, I do not love you as a group. (Yes, I know. My groups, too.)

Here’s another indication of their love for you, Collective White People: every time an individual black conservative points to some nefarious action of an individual black person or group of black persons, BLMs say that this black conservative is “making blacks look bad.” Again, BLMs care how Collective Black People look in your eyes, Collective White People.

Oh, they couldn’t care less about fixing the real problems among black Americans. No. They just want you to ignore the real problems, bow down and worship Blackness. They want you to love blackness, to worship it—and like an abusive spouse, they will demand your love and claim that the abuse is what you deserve. And they want it because blackness is all they think that Collective Black People have; no other abilities like intellect or tenacity. Yes, it's true, BLMs believe that Collective Black People are inferior, though they have no conscious awareness of this. If they did, they wouldn't be BLMs.

So, now that you know this, what are you going to do about the exposure of this secret, this revelation?

Here’s what I suggest: stop doing what they do. Stop looking at blacks or whites or any other racial group as a collective. Look at the individual and act/react accordingly.

This is our only hope as individuals, as groups of individuals, and as a nation.

UPDATE: What BLMs want you to know...

Happy to Be Alive

Happy New Year!

So, yesterday, I re-tweeted the following.
My Twitter account and my Facebook page are connected, and on the latter, the assertion caused a bit of a stir. Because of this, I will expound on why this is a logical assertion, though I have done so many times since 2007.

It’s difficult for many people to separate the personal from the impersonal and, related to that, it’s difficult for many to pull back and view people, events, actions, concepts, ideology, etc.—or some combination thereof—and separate these from singular, one-off facts which are personal in nature. But the separation of the personal and the impersonal, along with the pull-back are necessary when one needs to take a clear, sober view of what is and what’s probably on the way.

Some of my friends, dear and cherished, are fans of President Obama. Now, we all know that there are many out there who will cheer on the president no matter what he does, and will do so for tribal reasons. (Don’t forget that tribalism isn’t always racial or ethnic in nature.) Others, however, have personally benefited from some of his actions as president, so it is understandable that they like him.

But understandable and correct are two different qualities in this context. The president presides over a citizenry of 300 million plus.

Any President of the United States is not just the president of you or me, fellow Americans. And, in view of America’s informal role as leader, the policies and actions of a President of the United States affect more than just America. Therefore, if an individual has benefited from an action or a policy implemented by President Obama, that fact is irrelevant to determining whether he has been a “good president” or not. (Side note: it can be argued that America and the rest of the world would be better off if America would pull back from that role, but, as with any role abdication, there will be others who will try to fill the role and those others will not always have magnanimous intentions for the world. As a matter of fact, it is almost certain that they will not.)

Back to the overarching view of the Obama presidency: many observers have provided lists of this president’s words, policies and actions and have concluded that Barack Obama is not merely a terrible president, but that he is actively seeking to destroy this country as it has existed. As it happens, I agree with this conclusion and, having paid close attention to who Barack Obama is and what he believes since his existence became widely known, I’m not surprised in the least of how this presidency is playing out.

But the reactions to making such a conclusion public tells the story: President Obama’s existence and ascension are personal to all too many. And, personally, I’ve experienced the effects of opposing Barack Obama’s election and his actions as POTUS—as many know, my biological father and that of the president are of the same Kenyan ethnic group—the Luo tribe. Members of the Kenyan side my family have expressed dismay at my public opposition to our acknowledged kinsman.

But, pulling back yet again, many non-Luos and non-blacks have a vested interest in the "success" of the Obama presidency and it isn’t just personal. Many Americans—not just liberals and Leftists—wanted the first president of acknowledged African descent to do well in that office as a symbolic victory over this country’s history of legislated racism.

That’s a noble sentiment. But sentiment is irrelevant when something so serious is being decided.

And since we’re being straight here, I had a huge problem with that sentiment: those using it failed to take Barack Obama into account as a man and a political entity, and failed to take a clear look at how the combination of those things fit with the office to which he aspired. Instead, toall too many of his fans, his ascendance represented who we are--or who we are supposed to be--as a nation. Voting for Barack Obama seemed to be a self-congratulatory act. Who he really is and who he has been in his 54 years on this earth was considered irrelevant and any questioning of that existence was/is deemed racist or self-hating.

It is as if any black man would have fit the bill for this historic first.

Underneath that, is the presumption is that no black person would have nefarious intentions for this country. Anyone who is related to black people and/or lived next to some should have known better than this.

Who Mr. Obama is and has been, both personally and politically, has been out there from Day One, even though much of the professional media has refused to publicize it. However, even that which they have publicized, is telling. But observers have to 1) be able to use these facts to come to cogent conclusions about Mr. Obama, and 2) be willing to do so.

Most of the Obama supporters in my own sphere are able. Willing is another story. But when one takes a look at what has been said and done by this president--when one takes a look a the effects of this president's actions and policies--to conclude that he has this country's best interest at heart is the most wishful of thinking and wishful thinking can get you killed.

So it is again that I co-sign on Peter's assertion; I'm grateful to have survived 2015 in one piece, in spite of our president's stated intention to fundamentally transform my country and his demonstrable actions--and the results thereof--which tell my lying eyes that I won't like the end results of that transformation.

And it gives me no joy to suspect that President Obama's fans will not like those results either.
