Beyond the Cusp

Western Culture is the Culture Which Refuses to be Defined!

 

Multiculturalism, postmodernism, globalism or whatever headline name you wish to give the New Age culture, the main canon is we shall not live by the old rules. When asked by what rules these New Agers plan to live by, the most given answer is whatever I feel like at the moment. They will fight any attempt to name them or give their lives any set of defining terms, as they will oppose them simply such that they are seen in opposition to any definition. They claim they are free of such ideas as rules, limits, morals, ethics, morality or etiquette and that they make it up in the moment. This in the moment is the closest they come to any mantra and perhaps they are the personification of the old 1960’s rallying call of, “If it feels good, do it.” That was the call for living in the moment from that era and today’s millennials appear to be living out the hippie culture without realizing it. The problem with having an entire generation actually living within such a culture driven purely by the hippie ethos should frighten everybody when considering what the immediate future will become as these youth grow into the positions of power. But there is another alternative which is being proposed in Europe to replace the questionable future by providing the people with an ironclad and rigid ethical system which defines exactly how to perform every single action and decision in life. That is perhaps more than equally frightening as what will happen and which side will win when those living lives of total freedom with no limits or rules come into conflict with those whose lives are defined down to the last little action as which hand to use when eating and every act more complicated than that?

 

Islam is coming to Europe and it is coming in its most violent and restrictive variety. Islam will demand complete and total surrender to Allah and to his laws in the Quran. There will be no deviation from the rules, there will be no alteration of the rules, there will be only one set of rules and the Imam will dictate these rules from the laws written in the Quran and the Hadiths. Everyone must conform to the rules, both Muslim and Infidel. The Infidel will accept the classification as Dhimmi and live under the restrictions which are imposed upon all Dhimmi and act as subordinates to Muslims. Women must know their place, only travel outside the home in the company of a male relative be it husband, son, brother, uncle or other male relative or responsible male related in some manner. Women must remain veiled and dressed humbly and modestly and walk subjectively steps behind their male escort. Husbands are to strike wives in such a manner so as not to leave any permanent marks if she requires corrective influence as she is not sufficient subordinated or acts in some other undesirable manner. And a host of further rules with the eventual demand that all Dhimmis face a decision of conversion to Islam or being put to death, often by horrific means. Even should Dhimmi accept conversion, they will be constantly monitored closely seeking to note any action which might indicate that their conversion was done under false means and were not true in their faith. Such actions would result in torture to force a confession followed by execution as described above. All followers of Islam must observe the Five Pillars of Islam (see image below). The central demand of all Islam is also the meaning of the word Islam, surrender, as one is required to surrender their lives to Islam and follow all that Muhammad demands. This brings up the question of the contradictory laws, rules, customs and dictates found within the Quran. These are settled through Naskh (نسخ), an Arabic word usually translated as “abrogation”, the principle where an older verse is superseded by a new verse which contradicts or alters the initial verse in the Quran, or within the Hadiths. This is a major principle which would take too long to go through in this article but an introduction with multiple links in the comments section provided by our readers give more information and flush out this concept and the need thereof. The main concept of Islam which contradicts the lifestyle of the millennials is the demand that one surrender to Islam and its strict obedience of a rigid structure, the opposite of their beliefs.

 

Five Pillars of Islam

 

The problem which will soon confront the millennials is that their belief that little is worth fighting over will face pressure from Islam that they dedicate themselves to a set of strict rules even should they resist conversion. The millennials will not accept living as a Dhimmi any better than they would accept living as a Muslim. Their freedom filled lifestyle will not be accepted by Islam and this will place the two in direct opposition and then they will be faced with their worst nightmare, having to decide if anything in life, including the right to live as one chooses, is worth struggling, even fighting, to retain that which they have over the invading demands of Islam. Facing the choice of fight or flight many may decide on flight and then comes the question as to where? Moving elsewhere in Europe would, at best, simply put off the challenge until a later time as, unless Islam is prevented from becoming the dominant force in Europe, there will be no freedom the millennials currently understand as Islam stifles all freedoms replacing everything in life with the Quran, the Hadiths, the Imam’s rulings, the Five Pillars of Islam and total surrender to their new masters way of life. There are those who are already ready and standing in opposition of Islam. Some are trying to wake the European continent and are using the political system such as Geert Wilders. Others are using a more direct method meeting Islamic rioters in the streets and escorting women on trains and buses which pass through predominantly Muslim neighborhoods where they have been attacked in the past for indecent dress, also known as Western fashion. Some quote great men in history who had seen this threat before such as Charles “The Hammer” Martel and King of Poland John III Sobieski, two men who saved the opposite ends of Europe from Islamic advances, and Winston Churchill who saw the threat of the Nazis and rallied Britain, and saw the threat of Communism which he named their oppression as an Iron Curtain falling across the continent of Europe, but long before noting either of these threats, Winston Churchill recognized another threat which did not threaten one continent but the entirety of mankind if this threat were not understood, recognized and taken on with everything equal to the extents taken to answer the later two threats of the Nazis and Communists, and this first threat was Islam. We recognized his wisdom which includes the quotes shown below plus more in our article European Union Should Worry About Europe Not Israel; and here are those quotes from the Honorable Sir Winston Churchill:

How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries, improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live.
A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement, the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.
Individual Muslims may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome.

 

Another problem the millennials and those growing up after them face is a lack of knowledge of history which means they never heard of Winston Churchill beyond a few quips in computer games. Many are not well read as they were instructed in whole word recognition which restricts their vocabulary to only the worlds their teachers introduced to them. They were not given the power of phonics and sounding out words from their spelling unless they had a teacher in elementary schools who never received the memo about using whole word recognition which was distributed somewhere in the early 1990’s. This new method for reading made reading new material on one’s own difficult and so cumbersome that it was virtually painful as any word one did not know they would need to ask somebody what it was. The meaning they might be capable of finding in a dictionary or thesaurus but how the word was pronounced they likely required assistance. This makes any advanced book on history, politics, philosophy or even mathematics or physics beyond their capability and newspapers would be equally challenging. This is one of the reasons for the character limit on Twitter as it makes one write in a less complex manner using short and easy world. News on music channels is given in short and uncomplicated manner using statements which would also be acceptable as a Twitter post. The entirety of their world is contained in 140 characters or less, including spaces and punctuation. Perhaps this explains the lack of punctuation and the great new idea in schools that spelling should be an expression of one’s feelings for the word and that there not be any exacting idea for how words be spelled. This has even extended to mathematics where it is now the process which matters where if a student can explain how their method should have led them to the correct answer, that should count more than whether they did actually find the correct answer. Education just is not what it used to be and thus neither are the students or the knowledge expected from them. This also further explains why millennials believe that it is their freedom to do as they please which is important and the results should simply be accepted by the rest of society.

 

The lack of discipline shown by millennials and the younger set has included a new psychosis which is defined as Chronic Lateness and any person who is late to work on average three times per week cannot be fired for their tardiness as it is not their fault, they suffer from Chronic Lateness. This is a sample of how anything which millennials and the following generations and even us older people are now relieved of any responsibilities towards others and how all actions are now to be acceptable as they are simply the defined reasons and concepts under which each individual lives. We are all to be permitted to define how we live and exactly what others must expect and permit us to act even if it causes them problems as those are their problems and do not lay your problems on me, man. There is going to be a clash of civilizations as in Islam the five times of prayer every day are set in stone. They are announced in a less than casual cry by the muezzin often with the aid of expensive and powerful amplification systems such that nothing can mistake when the time for prayer has arrived. Imagine the millennial who upon hearing the call to prayer at 5:00 AM who decided to roll over and go back to sleep as they do not feel like bothering to rise and shine, and then at 11:00 AM when the second call to prayer is heard they had a rough night and our millennial decides they still require more rest turns back to their original side and returns to sleep and then finally rolls out of bed around 1:00 PM and then they just might become noticeable due to their absence at the morning prayer times. Somehow, it is doubtful that the Muslims would accept Chronic Lateness Syndrome. As we noted earlier, Islam is very rule oriented in everything in one’s life and that starts with waking for morning prayers as Salah, praying to Allah five times per day, is one of the Five Pillars of Islam. On the other side of the argument, if the millennials are going to defend their rights to live as they please by their rules and in a world where Chronic Lateness Syndrome is acceptable, then they may actually have to stand and do something.

 

Should they not stand, then Europe may end up looking like the map below along with the Middle East, Asia and Northern Africa. From there Islam has stated plans on moving on to North America starting with the United States and then moving on southward in both the Americas and Africa and lastly taking on China and Asia. There are many Imams and Islamic leaders who believe that these conquests are written in stone, or at least the Quran, and guaranteed by Allah and thus their efforts cannot be resisted. After they take control of the entire world, there will only be a few questions left to answer. The first question will be which interpretation of Islam will take total control, Shiites, Sunni, Salafi, Sufism, Wahhabis, Ahmadiyyas, Alawite or Kharijites. The average betting man would choose Sunni or Wahhabis but should Iran be the only Muslim nation with nuclear weapons, particularly thermonuclear devices, then the Shiites would be the best bet. Even after this, there will probably be yet another final question which will cause one final war, who will be the Caliph who will be expected to bring in the Twelfth Imam or the Mahdi who then would bring back Muhammad. One would hope that there would be no more conflict and everything would finally be settled and everything put in place for their End Times, but we likely missed something somewhere.

Will the world fall to Islam? That will first depend on whether Europe falls to Islam and this we have discussed numerous times and explained the required changes should Europe honestly desire to preserve its heritage. The easiest means of finding resolution for saving Europe would be a return to religion, filling the pews every Sunday, and through this restoring of their Christian heritage, having children, many children which would allow for a basis of workers to provide for the aging population. The having of children is the most important item on the list and there is no time like the present to begin their efforts. The map above should be sufficient impetus for action on behalf of the European population, then we are not sure what it might take. There have been signs of a restoration of religion even in Russia where President Putin has recognized that the future of Russia is heavily embedded in the return and rebirth of the Russian Orthodox Church. Christianity’s rebirth in Europe would mean Catholicism in Italy, Spain, Portugal, France and beyond; the Church of England and Catholicism in Britain and across the Isles; Lutheranism in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Iceland, Finland, Estonia, Latvia and Germany; Eastern Orthodox and Greek Orthodox in Eastern Europe and Poland; Calvinism in North and West Switzerland, minorities in Germany and Hungary, Scotland, a large minority in Northern Ireland, smaller numbers in England, Wales, Ireland and Malta. There are other churches and Catholicism throughout all of Europe and into Russia and all of these and even more modern and liberal churches such as the Church of Christ, Presbyterian Church, Evangelical Church, and some of the ancient churches such as the Assyrians, Coptic and others all need to contribute efforts and possibly even a new church using many of the originalist teachings of the early church which includes families as important and held many interesting principles and teachings which fell away with time and could add a degree of authenticity and excitement which would assist in the rebirth of faith in the new Europe. Imagine a church based on the originalist teachings becoming the newest church and the form of Christianity which allows for the reality in faith necessary for modern Europeans. Perhaps the millennial Church where services start Sunday morning around eleven and continue all afternoon, drop by as you feel the need and enjoy the service and adjust to the segment you find most comfortable, and don’t forget, children are bliss and excitement and teach real truths which we may not have found yet in our lives. Perhaps traditional churches and religions would be most appropriate to begin with, but hopefully, we might just see some version of these proposed paths come to fruition.

Yesterday’s Panic Leads to Today’s Rant

 

We ended yesterday’s article with a word stretched out as it is sung in a song we love and that word will be the determining factor on whether the Western World had a future, A-m-e-r-i-c-a. Tuesday, November 8, 2016, will determine who will be the leader of the developed world or just another wilted, limp, ineffectual sack of flesh making noise and no ability to lead anybody anywhere, and the world needs a leader and fast. The next American President faces a world in deep crisis and most of the people do not even realize there is a world outside their daily routine. That has been the problem in the last two elections where novelty and personality outweighed abilities and solid knowledge of the world and an idea of the weighty problems which have even worsened drastically in the past months and it continues to gain momentum making the job of slowing the direction to be a sufficient challenge, but turning it around into a positive direction will require dedication and a monumental effort. Within a year and a half by mid-2018 Iran will have announced and tested a nuclear weapon. That might be the turning point in the Middle East and soon spread through North Africa as the Arab Muslim World in MENA will have possibly made the greatest alteration in the history of Islam and the vast majority of Sunnis will decide that the strong horse is Iran and they will overthrow leaders who refuse to fall into the sphere with Iran as their leader. Should such a transformation take place, then we will definitely be facing a terrible war coming. Western Europe may have already surrendered without firing a shot and Eastern Europe will face the hardest years of turmoil as Islamic infiltrators will try to raise a fifth column working through subduction rather than over use of force of arms. Once Iran has demonstrated their nuclear weapons capability, their terror forces will be unrestrained with a nuclear umbrella always hanging over the free world’s leaders making their choices all the more difficult and action appear twice as challenging. Fighting a war on your own lands using only police forces is frighteningly inefficient. The people quake fearing the terrorism and bristling as each new restriction is applied in attempts to alter the field of play in the police’s favor. Police salaries have more than doubled and still finding recruits is becoming more difficult. The Eastern Europeans start to fear that they might need to seek shelter under the heavy arm of Putin’s Russia. What had been a dreaded threat looming for years after a resurgent Russia awoke, now appears as a shining knight, a potential savior. Why would anybody want to lead America with a world this messed up, but the candidates hardly know anything outside the two coasts and maybe Chicago, St Louis, Cleveland and Dallas/Fort Worth; but beyond the borders, they think they have enough problems at home, they are not seeking any new ones from the world.

 

Donald Trump & Hillary Clinton

Donald Trump & Hillary Clinton

 

That is the problem, which of the two realistic candidates, Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump, is at all likely to even realize there is a wider world outside of the economy and holding the line on the southern border, which may be the smartest thing they do except the terrorists are being brought into America as fast as President Obama and his silent team can land them in the deep still of the night as well as in broad daylight. Sometimes a media too lax to dig for the truth and who wait for orders from editors and happily grasping any morsel they are sold by White House story tellers like Ben Rhodes, no wonder the American public has no idea the world is burning. The candidates will mostly snipe about the other and all we will hear is about every sour deal Trump has ever had a part in and they are likely plenty to choose from and in return we will hear about the meaning of is, is and Benghazi, e-mails, Whitewater, the Clinton Foundation and every smarmy thing the Clintons have ever had their blood-soaked hands on. Get ready for a roller-coaster ride where only half the track actually exists and the pitfalls are in every strut and brace with an operator who’s an untrained person with little if anything that qualifies them to be leader of the free world. Hillary Clinton knows something about foreign affairs but is a total incompetent as she proved while pretending to be Secretary of State and as President she would simply be playing at the office enjoying the payoff for her supporting Bill through thick and thin and sometimes so sheer as to be threadbare. Donald Trump knows how to deliver an opening ceremony speech and glad-hand and walk with others nodding knowingly while knowing nothing but still insisting he is the smartest man in the room. Where his ability to delegate is admirable, but people who have worked on things with ‘The Donald’ claim he likes to micromanage things and often makes things far more complicated and difficult. Neither candidate is anywhere near the best their party had to offer but they are what the Americans backed and that is what we are stuck with throughout the rest of the world. If you are feeling that you have been through years and Presidential terms of office where the President seemed to be working against the better interests and fear it is about to happen again, well, feel better as that is unlikely. The worst case scenario is there will be an incompetent in the White House whose husband attempts to help and guide her on foreign policy decisions, that would be an improvement, but she is unlikely to take anyone’s advice as she believes she is all-knowing. The other choice, ‘The Donald,’ might actually choose competent advisors and place good people in the cabinet and if he should actually allow them to lead and follow their prescriptions, that would be a hopeful scenario and if his position adjustments on the Middle East, Israel particularly, after choosing Jason Greenblatt and David Friedman as his Israel and Middle East Advisors is any sign, then Donald Trump has shown signs of sufficient maturity to take advice on things he is clueless. Now we just need to hope he believes himself to be clueless about almost everything it takes at being a great President as that will allow him to listen and reason things out from the different opinions he receives from people who are actually knowledgeable. We are not endorsing either candidate as we may still write in for Allen West and we would gladly endorse Lt. Col. West.

Shall we move on to the rest of the world? As we have discussed the European Union (EU) appears to be planning on merging with the greater Muslim world and according to their own releases which we discussed in our article referencing the release titled The European Union Actually Planning Empire the EU not only plans on expanding its borders and control, or at least sharing the control in some manner, with the nations of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and on to central Asia and Central Africa so as to include all of the main body of Islam, spreading and advancing the joint economic conditions sharing technologies and using resources jointly while sharing in religious practices and cultural activities and celebrations. From the way it is weakly worded one could deduce that the EU would facilitate Islamic takeover of Europe religiously but with the proviso that there be no forcing Islam on those worshiping other faiths or none at all. This proviso is not likely to last more than a few moments before the pressures start to appear and then build and eventually we all know how this will end, we just cannot be sure as to how long. Our guess is eighteen months, but we have been known to be a bit optimistic. The culture would also tend not to remain very European for long and the only defense the Europeans would be able to hide behind would be limiting the movement of peoples from MENA into Europe and vice-versa. Still, the EU is based on free movement and it would not take very long before the MENA populations began moving into EU central nations for the benefits. The employment, benefits, healthcare, free schooling, minimum income and the plethora of other benefits which are largely financial and would offer these people wealth beyond their wildest dreams in exchange for nothing would attract tens to hundreds of thousands. The opportunities for disaster in the EU plan, well, let us just say it is fraught with opportunities for disasters for the current heart of the EU. It is not like the EU is not experiencing any difficulties such as the entire British Isles voting in favor of the Brexit referendum recently ending the near stranglehold the EU had on almost every major producing nation in Europe. Now the second greatest economic engine after Germany has started the required steps for exiting the EU. What makes the Brexit all the easier was the fact that the British retained their currency, the Pound Sterling. Britain is the only nation of the EU intelligent enough not to surrender their own currency and rely solely on the Euro. So far the worst predictions for Britain are coming true and we would, if we knew anything about investments, advise our investor, if we had one, to invest heavily in the pound waiting another eighteen days and then buy Pounds and wait for their recovery which should be scary great. Remember, we are not investment counselors and thus this is not investment advice unless it works, then we would like 5% thank you.

 

Meanwhile, the EU is very likely moving towards their destruction which will be realized when Islam finally decides that any agreement made really does not apply to limit the spread of Islam as that is demanded by Allah and that trumps the EU. This if backed by a Shiite thermos-nuclear stockpile of warheads and the ballistic and ICBMs (Inter-Continental Ballistic Missile), whose range is anywhere on planet Earth, with which to deliver said warheads as was demonstrated with the EMP attack on North America presented to a joint committee of Congress in a simulation, easily displaying how the grid would be destroyed with almost all the main and secondary transformers in the United States and Canada obliterated. They would not even need to do something that drastic as the Iranians could simply launch an ICBM which flies across the lands of the North American continent landing in the opposite ocean with a three ton dummy warhead which the Iranians permitted the United States to recover and also set off a thermonuclear device about the same size making delivery of such no longer a debatable issue and instead into solid fact. Add the productive capacity of the EU to the Mullahs of Iran’s dream of world conquest and Islam’s drive to defeat the Sunni Islamic world and place Shiite Islam as the new master of Islam and the leading candidate for the new Caliph and the leaders of Islam taking over the Saudi and Kuwaiti oil fields solidifying the world’s oil supply, or at least 65% of the world’s oil, under Shia control meaning that there will very likely be another oil embargo making gas a luxury once again in the United States as they require more than can be domestically produced even after adding the rest of the still free world’s oil supplies.

 

Should the EU try anything drastic before the new President, then it little matters who wins the election for President. As such is next to impossible for them to affect the United States election but the the EU will heavily depend on who wins the United States Presidential elections. Hillary Clinton claims she will continue the President Obama disastrous withdrawal from the world. She will likely initially do exactly what President Obama would pursue leaving the EU to its own devices as Hillary Clinton simply walks away from anything allowing for the world to continue degenerating even before Iran manufactures their broad front terror war. These wars initially and by themselves will not appear to be anything, but in reality they will be nation after nation being subsumed inexorably by the Iranian leadership leaving the surrender of the EU to be the final nail in that coffin. Donald Trump might not surrender as readily but he too will be also sacrificing one nation after another as well. This will be the aftermath of the calculus performed by Iran in arranging for them to develop nuclear weapons in secret right under a blind world’s eyes which by treaty will be seeking to change the very nature of war. Needless to point out that warfare will remain a contest between ideologies for dominance of one over the other in the realm of ideas and principles. This will be the war being fought by alternative means of which the surrender of the EU gifting all of Europe with the exception of Britain to Islam while the United States honors its commitment to trust and not even bother to verify that Iran is obeying their side of the treaty. It will become obvious that Iran is not living within the treaty confines and is instead gearing up for a long war of attrition. Once again the war will appear as have the past two world wars with Britain holding the line at the English Channel and Russia double-crossed holding the eastern front against Iran who will hold much of the world’s oil reserves, the one weakness which finished off Hitler will not be even an inconvenience for the Mad Mullahs and the Aryan march to impose the perfect society will pick right up where it rested at its apex holding the continent of Europe but this time allied with the nations of MENA making for an even stronger and more dangerous front against the world order.

 

All of this will be happening because of and under the nuclear umbrella of Iran made possible, and even inevitable, by the Iran Deal whose consequences we attempted to approach in our article What is Already Resulting From the Iran Deal? Further, one can read one of the versions of the Iran Deal as each nation apparently had their own translation under which they were operating, and we found the Russia interpretation likely to be the closest to the Iranian interpretation which has never been released. The Russian version of the Iran Nuclear Agreement 7/14/2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action is worth suffering through as it is how Iran likely sees the agreement. If we had to point to the greatest failing of the whole idea behind President Obama and his administration it would be the understanding that words have meaning and that meaning gives words the power to move mountains as if they were mole hills and turn mole hills into mountains. We are not speaking of rhetoric as that was one place President Obama soared, he could paint such pictures using hundreds of words that when subsequently parsed were found to have said absolutely nothing but they sure excited the useful idiots to whom sounding great is being great, no accomplishments necessary. This was most evident when President Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize because of his rhetoric during the first campaign and the immediate aftermath. Shakespeare defined President Obama to a fine point with his phrase found in Macbeth Act 5, scene 5, 19–28 with which we shall close today’s article.

 

To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.
