Seeing Reds - Joseph McCarthy vindicated

From Justin Raimondo:
But the collapse of the Soviet empire has meant the implosion of the liberal delusion that McCarthyism was a mean-spirited campaign of lies and smears based entirely on the ambition and alcohol-fueled paranoia of one flawed human being, whose name has become synonymous with witch-hunting. Schlesinger and his ideological confrères have had the rug pulled out from under them by the gradual release of the KGB’s files, and the coup de grâce has been delivered by the publication of Spies, which cites definitive evidence from the Soviet archives that not only nails Duggan as a Soviet agent, but also closes the case of the most celebrated Soviet fifth columnist of all, Alger Hiss.
How little things change. This is precisely what Larry Franklin, the Pentagon’s top Iran analyst, said in his own defense when he was caught turning over vital secrets to Israeli officials via AIPAC employees Steve Rosen and Keith Weissman. Far from considering himself a traitor, he fancied himself a patriot for trying to advance the special relationship between the two countries. Convinced that American policymakers weren’t responding to the alleged threat from Iran decisively enough, he took it upon himself to supply the Israelis with closely held intelligence about al-Qaeda and U.S. troop movements in Iraq because he considered American and Israeli interests to be the same. more >>
Google Communism, USSR, Bolsheviks, Hollywood, neo-cons, oligarchs, and discover which tribe invented this "international psychopathic cult" and has been its leading proponent in the West ever since (to include the open borders movement).

What happened to Natalie Holloway

Judicial-Inc puts forth a theory based on the facts of the many investigations.

From Mel Gibson's The Patriot

A repeat performance devoutly to be wished.

"Boys, I want you to start with the bankers and work your way down."

“Veni, Vidi, Deus Vicit:” Jan Sobieski Day, September 12

"I came, I saw, God has conquered." September 12 was the day King Jan Sobieski saved Vienna from a large army of Muslims and earned the title, "Savior of Vienna and Western European civilization."
One of the Western world's most important events took place in 1683, as a powerful Ottoman army advanced into Europe. Already having conquered Hungary and Transylvania, 138,000 Ottomans laid siege to the city of Vienna, the gateway to continental Europe. 11,000 troops and 5,000 volunteers declared that they would defend the city to the last man. For almost two months, they held out against the Turkish onslaught, suffering severe casualties as the Turks breached the outer walls of Vienna, digging tunnels and filling them with gunpowder.

Enter Jan III Sobieski, King of Poland, and the husaria, or winged hussars. As the battered Austrians prepared to fight in the streets of Vienna, Sobieski led a relief force of 30,000 Poles, 18,500 Austrians, 19,000 Franconian, Bavarian, and Swabian troops, and 9,000 Saxons. The Turks attacked the relief force, resulting in 12 hours of intense ... more >>
The commonwealth later collapsed because of multiculturalism (from the same article):
A modern democracy, even Kings were elected. Refugees from religious and cultural persecution were welcomed, and it was not uncommon to see Christian churches side by side with Jewish temples and Islamic mosques in major cities ...

Loki still in charge

A reference to the Trickster, found whilst reading Chapter III of William Joyce's most interesting 1940 book, Twilight Over England.
In the English people there lingered, however concealed, some traces of the Viking strain. There was an inherent sympathy with the acquisition of new tracts of land; and often, deep down, there lay the feeling that wandering, fighting, encountering danger, killing and being killed were all nearer to the spirit of eternity than the drudgery of a Victorian counting-house desk. Only when one has experienced the drab and sordid conditions of life in commercial London, only when one has felt the last strain of poetry evading the human grasp, like Creusa, in the relentless monotony of pounds, shillings, and pence, can one understand the latent longing for adventure which, in the popular mind, blessed the transactions of British Imperialism.

The Liberals, of course, could not afford to satisfy this longing. The noblest of their leaders never rose in imagination or outlook above the level of a sedate bank-clerkwith singular professional acumen. Their language may have been more exalted.
“..............Mammon led them on,
Mammon, the least erected Spirit that fell
From Heav’n, for ev’n in Heaven his looks and thoughts
Were always downward bent, admiring more
The riches of Heav’ns pavement trod’n gold,
Than aught divine or holy else enjoyed
In vision beatific”
The function, then, of Conservatism was to provide just that element of aggressive nationalism which could win empires, whilst the Liberal hypocrites for whom the Empires were being won could intone the glories of universal brotherhood and occasionally sacrifice a General, like Gordon of Khartoum, just to show that they were internationally minded. These Uriah Heaps, these Victorian Pharisees, whited sepulchres, dead men’s bones, talked glibly about the Parliament of Man and the Federation of the World, because their interest lay not in the building of an Empire but in the acquisition of a larger area for their financial depredations. As good internationalists, they must, of necessity, disavow such an aim; and therefore, they found a most useful weapon in the remnants of the poor old landed gentry who, in their mind’s eye, were still winning the campaigns of the Civil War. Thus, when England’s heroes won her battles “in stronds remote”, the Liberal Capitalist could wring his hands and say “How horrible!”, after providing the money for thecampaign. Truly Loki had the Giants at his mercy. more >>
Multas gratias tibi, WinterMute, for recommending this book. What delightful history written inside.

Newspapers included in "free press"?

Thomas Jefferson, a radical progressive for his time, was very fond of the idea of educating the populace in order to maintain good government. You may have seen quotes such as these :
"The press [is] the only tocsin of a nation. [When it] is completely silenced... all means of a general effort [are] taken away." -- Thomas Jefferson to Thomas Cooper, Nov 29, 1802. (*) ME 10:341

"The only security of all is in a free press. The force of public opinion cannot be resisted when permitted freely to be expressed. The agitation it produces must be submitted to. It is necessary, to keep the waters pure." -- Thomas Jefferson to Lafayette, 1823. ME 15:491

"The functionaries of every government have propensities to command at will the liberty and property of their constituents. There is no safe deposit for these but with the people themselves, nor can they be safe with them without information. Where the press is free, and every man able to read, all is safe." --Thomas Jefferson to Charles Yancey, 1816. ME 14:384
But perhaps you didn't know that the honorable gentleman from Virginia did not look favorably on the newspapers of his time :
"The man who never looks into a newspaper is better informed than he who reads them, inasmuch as he who knows nothing is nearer to truth than he whose mind is filled with falsehoods and errors. He who reads nothing will still learn the great facts, and the details are all false." --Thomas Jefferson to John Norvell, 1807. ME 11:225

"The basis of our governments being the opinion of the people, the very first object should be to keep that right; and were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter. But I should mean that every man should receive those papers and be capable of reading them." --Thomas Jefferson to Edward Carrington, 1787. ME 6:57

"The most effectual engines for [pacifying a nation] are the public papers... [A despotic] government always [keeps] a kind of standing army of newswriters who, without any regard to truth or to what should be like truth, [invent] and put into the papers whatever might serve the ministers. This suffices with the mass of the people who have no means of distinguishing the false from the true paragraphs of a newspaper." --Thomas Jefferson to G. K. van Hogendorp, Oct. 13, 1785. (*) ME 5:181, Papers 8:632

"I really look with commiseration over the great body of my fellow citizens who, reading newspapers, live and die in the belief that they have known something of what has been passing in the world in their time, whereas the accounts they have read in newspapers are just as true a history of any other period of the world as of the present, except that the real names of the day are affixed to their fables. General facts may indeed be collected from them... but no details can be relied on." --Thomas Jefferson to John Norvell, 1807. ME 11:224
But newspapers were just about the only component of a "free press" in Jefferson's time. It seems he may have been hoping that the peoples would become better educated and that either the newspapers would respond by improving the quality of their reporting, or readers would have learned how to separate the facts from the fiction.

Comforting in a way, is it not, that some things never change? The newspapers today (to include radio and TV news) are still as inaccurate and dishonest as they can be, and readers are still as uninformed and as gullible as ever.

Achtung, Leute

A patriotic Southerner thanks our leaders. Hot damn, Corndog, that honest little speech warmed my heart. I think it's safe to say he speaks for all of us.

People, how much more are you going to put up with? Our elected representatives seem as feckless or as powerless as ever. It's going to be up to us, as usual, to stop this madness -- and it seems to be a question of now or never. The Citizen asks what your heart tells you. (Commenter JeffC is so typical of the RNC and Bush-worshippers that helped shove us into the current mess.)

Trashing the planet

Our waste problem is pretty bad. Frosty Wooldridge has some numbers and illustrations which may surprise you.

(Note to RedTeam fans: It is not "lefty" to love Mater Terra and want to preserve the beauty thereof. We are supposed to be good stewards, nicht wahr? It is our duty to take care of her.)

Sutlers: An Integral Part of the Civil War

by Pat McNulty. A short, interesting article about the difficulties and peculiarities of supplying armies during the War of Northern Aggression. I'm sure some soldiers would've preferred getting shot by their enemies rather than having to ingest the food provided by the friendlies.

The return of Classical Education

Here are some of the best introductory articles I've found about Classical Education.

Greek to You: Is classical education dead?; Kathryn Jean Lopez interviews Tracy Lee Simmons, author of Climbing Parnassus, A New Apologia for Greek and Latin. (2002)

The Humanities Move Off Campus, by Victor Davis Hanson (2008)

The Classical Education of the Founding Fathers, by Martin Cothran (2007)

The Revival of Latin, by Hilaire Belloc (1931)

On the Study of Latin, by Arthur Schopenhauer (1851)
If the threatened calamity should ever come, and the ancient languages cease to be taught, a new literature shall arise, of such barbarous, shallow and worthless stuff as never was seen before.
Classical Christian Education 101 required readings, a collection of articles about Latin and Classical Education for parents and teachers, by Memoria Press.

Exodus Mandate has launched "The Call to Dunkirk", a new initiative calling upon churches and ministries to reorder their priorities so that they can assist parents in rescuing their children from the public schools. (2009)   Full article >> .

Sean Hannity gets a clue

Here's the video I talked about a few days ago, where Insanity's two brain cells strain to realize that there is indeed a New World Order forming. Skip to the two minute mark.

During the election, Insanity went out of his way to be mean and patronizing to Ron Paul and anyone who supported Ron Paul and to anyone who suggested that the international bankers and globalists were pushing for world government, calling us all kinds of nasty names.

Millions of average Americans already knew about the NWO, and have been warning about it for decades. Yet, Insanity and his million dollar research staff couldn't get their heads out of Bush's pants long enough to see it.

I still haven't received an apology from that media whore. What a stupid jackass, just like O'Reilly.

Here's Alex Jones on the recent shootings and last week's NWO summit, including some very good clips from other news shows.

Reminder about Glenn Beck

He's a liar or a complete idiot; likely both. I've been following Ron Paul very closely for over a decade now and he is what he appears to be: an honest, reliable, realistic man who believes (mostly) in what Early Americans always believed in. Beck's criticisms of Paul come from his own twisted, alcohol-damaged brain, or what's left of it.

Yes, Glenn, the airwaves are full of disinformation. That includes your show.

Meine Leute, bitte!, turn off the Talmudvision and read Ron Paul's old articles for yourself (they're all over the Interwebs today, has a good collection), go hear him speak, check out his track record. He's not perfect, no one is. But there's none better in D.C. today -- no one else even comes close.

Let Glenn Beck be your litmus test: If you believe him (and those idiots Insanity and O'Rabidly) about Ron Paul being unrealistic, extreme, usw., then you are a typical brainwashed American sheep. You are part of the problem.

Think you know Newt?

If you think he's a real conservative, concerned with preserving America and the Constitution or upholding original American national ideals, think again. Devvy Kidd discusses Mr. Gingrich and William F. Jasper's  article about him. In short, Newt shows us how to get the global oligarchists' job done in a democracratic or populist atmosphere: lie your tail off.

Which comes first, love or greatness?

On the power and primacy of love, from Chesterton's Orthodoxy:
Let us suppose we are confronted with a desperate thing -- say Pimlico. If we think what is really best for Pimlico we shall find the thread of thought leads to the throne or the mystic and the arbitrary. It is not enough for a man to disapprove of Pimlico: in that case he will merely cut his throat or move to Chelsea. Nor, certainly, is it enough for a man to approve of Pimlico: for then it will remain Pimlico, which would be awful. The only way out of it seems to be for somebody to love Pimlico: to love it with a transcendental tie and without any earthly reason. If there arose a man who loved Pimlico, then Pimlico would rise into ivory towers and golden pinnacles; Pimlico would attire herself as a woman does when she is loved. For decoration is not given to hide horrible things: but to decorate things already adorable. A mother does not give her child a blue bow because he is so ugly without it. A lover does not give a girl a necklace to hide her neck. If men loved Pimlico as mothers love children, arbitrarily, because it is theirs, Pimlico in a year or two might be fairer than Florence. Some readers will say that this is a mere fantasy. I answer that this is the actual history of mankind. This, as a fact, is how cities did grow great. Go back to the darkest roots of civilization and you will find them knotted round some sacred stone or encircling some sacred well. People first paid honour to a spot and afterwards gained glory for it. Romam homines non amant quod illa magna erat. Illa magna erat quod illam amaverant [my translation -- r.m.]. ... The worst jingoes do not love England, but a theory of England. If we love England for being an empire, we may overrate the success with which we rule the Hindoos. But if we love it only for being a nation, we can face all events: for it would be a nation even if the Hindoos ruled us. ... Before any cosmic act of reform we must have a cosmic oath of allegiance. A man must be interested in life, then he could be disinterested in his views of it. "My son give me thy heart"; the heart must be fixed on the right thing: the moment we have a fixed heart we have a free hand. ... Is he enough of a pagan to die for the world, and enough of a Christian to die to it? In this combination, I maintain, it is the rational optimist who fails, the irrational optimist who succeeds. He is ready to smash the whole universe for the sake of itself.

Hurricane Chris in the Louisiana legislature

If you have not seen the movie Idiocracy, watch this video to get a sneak preview. Seriously. James Edwards has commentary and lyrics.

Stay tuned. Just like school shootings, rampant teacher-student rape, large percentages of illiterate college students, and gay lifestyles taught in elementary schools, there will be plenty more of this in "The House of Representin'."

Und warum nicht? What shared principle would put an end to it today in the West? Who among our "leaders" has not only the nerve but the words to put a stop to it? And who among the people would hear and understand?

Previously, I hesitated to recommend Idiocracy because of the bad language. Now it seems mild by comparison.

And Meine Kinder, having read your Western history well, you know that this situation -- the vicious daily murders, robberies, rapes, gross incompetence, a legislature which would provide a forum for this hoodlum -- and clap afterward -- is actually worse than what our forefathers warned us about should we ever integrate with non-Europeans.
