Israeli Absurdity of the Rule of Law

 

There will very probably be any number of reports about how the Israeli government is working to destroy the democracy. These screams and wails of lament will be coming from some justices from the Supreme Court, Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit but most prominently from those on the political left. The further into the progressive and even communist left one travels, the ever louder the banshee screams will be heard. There is a very simply reason behind this, and it has to do with the last stand of the rascals. For quite some time the Israeli population, and thus the Knesset, have been moving inexorably towards the nationalist and Zionist end of the spectrum, in Israel that is called the right wing. Another trend has been for the percentage of the population which is religious orthodox, but not Haredi, has been increasing and keeping pace with the Haredi if not surpassing them. Meanwhile, the liberal-progressive-left has watched their percentage slide slowly in an ever-decreasing spiral with their holding out largely in the Tel Aviv leftist echo-chamber. This has been cause for their lament as they watch their path of last recourse to halt their slippage from power slowly being brought back into proper proportion. Ever since the former Supreme Court Chief Justice (President) Aharon Barak ruled that “all things are adjudicable,” the Supreme Court has taken the position that they know what was best for Israel and if the Knesset could not agree, then they would take matters, and the law, into their own hands. This meant that should the Knesset pass legislation with which the liberal left disagreed; they would employ the Supreme Court to overturn the law. This also allowed for the leftist Supreme Court Justices to implore the court to overturn any legislation without the need for any petition from outside the court. Then they decided that perhaps they could and should write the needful laws as they viewed Israel. They went as far as countermanding orders given by IDF commanders even during times of conflict if they believed that the IDF might cause suffering upon those they were fighting. These justices did not understand the principle that you win conflicts by making your opponents pained or worse. The Supreme Court went to such extremes that even the most casual observers were taking note and starting to complain that the Supreme Court was superseding the will of the people and their duly elected government, and this was indeed troubling to many.

 

Then there is the case of the Attorney General, almost every Attorney General. Every election cycle, whether the previous government went full-term, a great rarity, or whether early elections were called after dissolving the Knesset, invariably the candidate who was atop the ticket for the leading right leaning party which was predicted to be tapped, if they took sufficient Ministerial Mandates for the upcoming Knesset, would have announcements that they could or were coming under indictment for bribery, kickbacks and other unethical behavior. These charges were often frivolous and seldom ever came to trial. As for Bibi Netanyahu, he has had the same cases used for the past decade. Originally, there were around eight separate investigations kept simmering on the back burners never quite coming to a close. With the upcoming elections it has been announced that, surprise, surprise, Bibi Netanyahu might be arraigned on any of three separate charges after he has been interrogated and a deposition taken which, of course, will be scheduled for some time after the election. One would not be out of line to ask, after which elections, this election, the next election or forever until Bibi does not run and then they would be dropped? He stands accused of bribing a news source for positive coverage after which they continued to tear him apart at every opportunity. Then there is the most ridiculous charge of them all. He accepted expensive cigars, expensive champagne and other than cheap costume jewelry as presents from a billionaire friend who had dined at the Prime Minister’s house. Really, that is the crime? What do they expect a billionaire to give as presents; cheap it’s a boy cigars, a box of Franzia wine and a Dick Tracy decoder ring for Mrs. Netanyahu? This was a billionaire, not just some paltry odd millionaire. But when one is grasping at straws, you get what you expect, total ridiculousness wrapped up all pretty so it looks authentic and real. There are some demanding that the dropped cases be reopened though they have already been played out and were seen for what they were, but it is Bibi and another elections, he must be stopped. The desperation is far too evident and all despite the polls already indicating that the Blue-White Party with former Chief of Staff General Gantz atop the ticket sharing it with ex-newscaster Yair Lapid presumably leading in the majority of the polls. But why leave anything to chance when you can potentially remove Bibi from office after the election by charging him and then having the Supreme Court order him to resign. Why stop there, order new elections and continue to do so until the Supreme Court and Attorney General get a Knesset they prefer. The Supreme Court has already moved to decide who is permitted to be on the ticket by removing a candidate who they see as too far right despite his having served on the Knesset previously and insisted that every party and candidate which believes that Israel is wrong and the Arab Palestinians are right must be permitted to be in the ballot. Why stop there when the Supreme Court could just as easily formulate a list of candidates approximately, well, exactly, one-hundred-twenty names all of which they agree with politically and then allow the people to vote to decide who will be the one-hundred-twenty Minister of the Knesset, that would remove any doubt that the Knesset would act as the Supreme Court demands. But then the Attorney General would not have any political arraignments left on his books and would be bored without having to seek out crimes where none exist.

The problem is very simple to understand. Somewhere back at the beginning of the State of Israel, those who crafted the governance in their infinite wisdom, set up a system by which the Supreme Court, Attorney General and a small group of select individuals including representatives of the lawyers guild would determine who was chosen to be a judge, any judge, including Supreme Court judges and also choose the Attorney General. This system resulted in the Supreme Court choosing identically like-minded judges in every judgeship as well as who would replace any retiring or other vacancy on the Supreme Court as well as choosing the Attorney General. Israel was a socialist and extremely leftist nation with an agrarian economy, so maybe this made sense. Israel has changed. Not only is Israel a burgeoning capitalistic economy which is partially high-tech agriculture, but also heavily into medicine, electronics, software, apps, and many, many various highly educated endeavors. The courts are still back in the glory days of the socialist utopia and refusing to be dragged along with the nation. That causes friction and resentment every time the courts attempt to undo the modernization of governance and making things progress. So we have what is called a progressive court which is against progress which has taken the nation further from being a socialist haven. The courts and their selection processes are going to change, if not now, then soon or when the people are so fed up that they demand that the entirety of the judgeships be removed, a new system put in place and then a whole new justice system enacted, selected, approved and ready to move with the people and not ruling against what the nations as a whole desires. The courts have become so reactionary that some on the left are even seeing the problem; they just are not quite ready to lose their place of final recourse. Changes have already started and will continue apace unless the elections prove to have returns which we here are not expecting. Our view of the results of the coming April 9, 2019, elections is that the Likud will once again be tasked with forming a coalition, probably first shot, but even if the Blue-White Party gets first shot, it is thought that they could only muster fifty-five of the necessary sixty-one mandates and thus have to allow another party to try. That other party would be the Likud as things currently appear. Now should the Supreme Court order Bibi to step down as the head of the Likud Party now, with less than three weeks, possibly two by the time this is published, and it would throw a wrench into the entire elections and then the Blue-White Party would be all but assured of forming a coalition and thus save the courts from the will of the people. Contrary to what is often reported, the Blue-White Party stands squarely behind the two-state-solution despite their protestations to the contrary. Now we (I) could be wrong, but my political sense is not often that far from reality, much to some people’s consternation. Given my druthers, we would very much like to see Rafi Peretz from Jewish Home and leader of the Union of Right-Wing Parties be the one tapped to form a coalition, that could only happen were Bibi removed by the Supreme Court, something few desire. The man, Rafi Peretz, is a former Chief Rabbi of the IDF, head of the Otzem Pre-Military Academy in Yated, a combat helicopter pilot, and to match the Blue-White Party claims to fame, is a retired IDF Brigadier General and from reactions to his naming, a well respected gentleman as told by IDF veterans who knew him. We could call this the pipe dream for the coming elections.

Trump Trumps Clinton Now What? (Electoral College 279 to 259)

 

The total as of this writing was Trump with 279 Electoral votes from approximately 59,441,968 (47.5%) popular vote while Clinton held 259 Electoral votes from approximately 59,649,606 (47.7%) popular votes. Once again the election goes opposite the popular vote, something often criticized as are the men who designed the Electoral College such that the big state numbers have their advantage but face it being slightly marginalized by the setup of the Electoral system. First let us indulge in a quick review on how the Electoral College works and the reasoning for it being used by the United States. The system is easily broken down. Every state and the nation’s capital, Washington D.C. all get two electors for what is their Senatorial representation (Washington D.C, is treated as if it were a small state with representation of a single delegate in the House of Representatives and two Senators). After this each state receives an elector for each Representative they hold in the House of Representatives. California receives fifty-three Electors for their fifty-three Representatives plus two more for their Senators for a total of fifty-five Electors. Wyoming receives a single Elector for their sole Representatives plus two for their Senators for a total of three Electors. This allots greater representation per person for Wyoming over California by a ratio over five-to-one and it is this type of disparity which causes many to loathe the system. The reason the Founding Fathers went with this seemingly convoluted system was identical to the reason for a bicameral Congress with one side, the House of Representatives, set by population thus favoring the larger states and the other side, the Senate, with two per state providing the states themselves with equal representation regardless of population size or land mass. The Founding Fathers realized that should they have permitted straight democracy that this would have produced mass rule, followed soon by mob rule and then collapse as had every democracy throughout history, and they desired building a nation which would be more stable. The main difference came about when the House of Representatives ceased being based on one Representative per set number of people to a set cap of four-hundred-thirty-five Representatives and the States receiving a minimum of one Representative and the remainder allotted proportionally. This also capped the Electors in the Electoral College at five-hundred-thirty-eight once Washington D.C. was allotted three Electors despite not having any actual representation in the Congress.

Next we need talk about the polling data being so skewed throughout the campaign and only closing in the final thirty-six hours though the lead did narrow slowly before the rush to even the night before Election Day. There are numerous claims as to why the polls consistently favored Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump. One claim was that their intent was to press the idea that Trump could not win, period. This would, in theory, berate Trump supporters with so much bad news wearing them down such that they would give up and not bother to vote. The problem with this tactic is the vast number of Trump voters fell into two main categories, those who believed that a President Trump was the answer to America’s woes and those who were voting to emphasize their view that America was failing them and its Constitution. The first group was true believers with many voting for their first time despite having been registered for years. This was evidenced by the record number of voters in Republican primary elections. These people would have walked over burning embers to have voted Trump just as Hillary Clinton’s true believers were voting for her no matter what. The second group was making their voice heard loud and clear as they had a message for America and thus were determined to vote. A majority of Trump voters were with him at the start when he was one amongst seventeen and stayed the course. The third group of Trump supporters was the “stop the Hildabeast” and would stop at almost nothing to prevent the catastrophic consequences of Hillary Clinton being coronated President. Trump was not their choice, he was their life raft and these people were highly motivated to vote but were also motivated not to tell pollsters the truth about their vote choice. There was a minimum number of people who were pulling the Trump lever in the voting booth who were not firmly entrenched in the ranks of Trump supporters though for many a varied and different reason but were all there for the whole four quarters and would have remained just as committed should the race have gone into sudden-death overtime, which it came close to doing.

 

Then there is the fact that the media is skewed to the left end of the political spectrum. When one considers that Fox News is touted, even victimized cast as a reactionary, right-wing, extremist, conservative to the point of reactionary news station where every anchor and host must prove their ultra-conservative bonafides in order to get in the door, then it becomes obvious that the remainder of the news is far more liberal and even leftist by comparison. What then pushes the rest of the news syndicates even further left is this definition of every and any-body of note at Fox News is, by definition, ultra-pure reactionary-conservative which presumably includes, wait, wait, wait for it, Chris Wallace (see image below). As per the link, Chris Wallace worked at ABC News for 14 years where he served as the senior correspondent for Primetime Thursday and a substitute host for Nightline. Before that Chris Wallace served a NBC’s Chief White House correspondent from 1982-1989. Chris Wallace moderated Meet the Press from 1987-1988. Chris Wallace also anchored the Sunday edition of NBC Nightly News from 1982-1984 and 1986-1987. Chris Wallace began his career with NBC at WNBC-TV (NBC 4) in New York in 1975. Chris Wallace is, at the most extreme of his leaning right, a moderate of impeccable discernment. Fox News is considered to be so far to the right because the rest of the news groups live with the academics in unassailable Ivory Towers found only in the extreme leftward climes. Fox News is to the right of almost all news services with the exception of CBN (Christian Broadcasting Network) and a few select others and many on-line commentators most of whom have their following and limited audiences. Like in all things political, it is all relative to where you yourself choose to stand. Us, well, we stand so far off to the outside that we fall Beyond the Cusp.

Meanwhile, let’s get back to the election. Donald Trump did win, so stop pinching yourself. Hillary Clinton gave an honest and worthy concession speech in which she expressed her hopes that though she was not fated to break that glass ceiling, that perhaps one of her many supporters, possibly one in the hall listening as she spoke, would be the woman to break through shattering that glass ceiling once and for all. Trump was gracious as well in his victory comment where he praised Hillary Clinton for her determined and high pressure campaign which had pushed him to strive and become a better person in response. Trump thanked and congratulated the Republican candidates and politicians who backed him for their support. He thanked Dr. Ben Carson, Chris Christie, Rudy Giuliani, his family including parents, brother, his other brother who has passed on, his wife, children and so on and thanked a number of workers he noted in the crowd. He was the real Donald Trump, the Donald who stops and talks with the guys digging the ditches at a construction site and the carpenters, brick layers, crane operators all before, after and even during holding higher level talks with the foremen, supervisor and engineers. This is one trait which makes the Donald who he is and why so many speak so highly of him, he actually takes the time to recognize everyone and give all a piece of the praise and credit. We will need to wait and see how this translates to the insular nature of the Presidency and life in a bubble, a very nice bubble, but a big white mansion style bubble called, remarkably, the White House. One thing for sure, being President is far more challenging than running for President and we are about to watch a capable man try and meet the biggest challenge of his life and starting out with two outs, man on second base, a three balls two strike count down five runs in the top of the third inning. It will be vital to equip himself with a top notch team as he cannot, nor would we here at Beyond the Cusp wish, run the effort almost singlehandedly. His pick for running mate showed good judgement and was wise but it will have to wait for more trust, let alone praise, to be lauded upon Donald Trump. He will have an excellent chance to prove his metal right out of the box filling the huge gaping hole left by the late Justice Antonin Scalia in the Supreme Court bench. This selection will act as an initial window to Trump’s soul, an entity which was called into suspect early on by some stalwarts of the Republican Party. Should this choice not fully measure, up these suspicions are very likely to reappear and do so very quickly.

 

The main Cabinet appointments will come at the State Department, Secretary of Defense, Education Secretary and United Nations Ambassador. For this last office returning John Bolton, should he decide to be available, would be a strong start. Rudy Giuliani would be a strong choice for any high profile position but might be best used to either lead the deconstruction of the Department of Education returning virtually all power down as locally as possible and keep almost nothing in Washington D.C. which could save many a school system as they would be liberated to spend all their time on teaching and none on meeting testing requirements, indoctrinations ordered from Washington and meeting near endless paperwork requiring additional staff who are not in any manner connected to teaching. They simply document compliances and send the forms to their school district, county, city, state, Washington D.C. and file copies with the office, every vice Principle, the Principle(s), Advisors, required teachers, required parents and whomever and whatever else is demanded. Some of these forms are actually daily reports and that is what many school systems have become, report generators which produce endless streams of paperwork and uneducated graduates whose school years are documented thus presumed productive. Donald Trump’s choice on who leads the Veterans Administration will be carefully watched as will any changes which are implemented. Here is another place where paperwork takes precedent over actual work. Hopefully Donald Trump will be able to bring a fair number of real administrators and managers from the real world into government positions where they can do some real good for the government and its ability to serve the people. Needless to go further than to simply say his appointments will speak very loudly and hopefully be armed with Teddy Roosevelt style big sticks. Tell the truth, not only do the people of the United States await Donald Trump’s important appointments’ names, but many around the world are also waiting to see who he is able and desires for top spots, especially his inner circle which includes but may not be limited to the Foreign Affairs Advisor, Secretary of State, Secretary of Defense, Security Advisor, Joint Chiefs of Staff amongst others. What will be another indicator is who a President Trump calls to the White House from the Republicans in the House of Representatives and the Senate as well as who, if any, he invites from the Democrat side of Congress. These choices could prove to be greatly tactical as it may establish who a President Trump feels will best work with him on his agenda.

 

Speak Softly and Carry a Big Stick

Speak Softly and Carry a Big Stick

 

In conclusion, it will be educational once we start to see the choices Donald Trump makes officially sending to the Senate for their review and vote and those he keeps close under his vest and does not seek the Senate’s approval. Will a President Trump continue the underhanded and unethical practice of having “Czars” who actually perform an identical function as the Secretary over a department who the Senate passed review such that the President had two advisors for all too many departments and the actual Secretary was often left out of the loop and the Czar would actually run the show dictating policy and decisions to the actual Secretary serving the Cabinet. This was simply the means President Obama appointed some controversial people granting them the power equal or higher than the Cabinet Secretary while avoiding Senatorial oversite as per the Constitution. Ending this practice and setting up even a Constitutional Amendment which would define people with certain powers and responsibilities regardless of their title requiring Congressional oversight and be vetted and approved by the Senate as does any other appointee with such powers. Such a move might not prevent a future President from acting in a similar manner but it will empower Congress to then act having the Constitutional leverage to do so. Remember that the first hundred days often set the tone between a President and the Congress, people, national leaders and the world in general. Trump’s initial steps in the Middle East and North Africa will reveal his true foreign policy outlook. The man will be walking into the middle of a forest surrounded by swampland with an angry beehive just over his shoulder and a bear coming for the honeycomb sure to disturb the hive. It will likely be a dark and threatening sky with a hard rain approaching and tornado sirens blaring in all directions. Welcome to happy old Washington D.C. where this is the standard start of a day with a bright outlook and do not ask how a bad day starts, just hope you never find out but as a hint, it usually follows a night where you did not sleep and will be making a speech to the nation the coming night to explain that which you are not totally sure you understand, but make that speech and speak of the solution and whatever you do, do not let them see you sweat and make sure you are dressed appropriate to the news and pray that you get to sleep more than three hours the next night. Mr. President; President Trump, welcome to the world where real people play the game of risk with real wars full of intrigue and always an unknown factor lurks just beyond the cusp out of view arising only at the worst possible time, and we have not even spoken about the media. Media has a single rule you must always remember, they are not your friend, your buddy or somebody you should ever trust because you are the biggest story they have even if they need make up two thirds, they will do so thus be ever vigilant when speaking and they are visible as that places them within hearing that one-third out of which they can manufacture a scandal, and they get paid to do just that. Good Luck and may Heaven assist and guide you throughout your Presidency.

Refugee Lack of Civility Breaking the Silence

 

Angela Merkel and the rest of the European and Western leaders, including President Obama if his hopes for bringing hundreds of thousands if not millions of these so-called refugees to the United States unvetted, was an egg which sitting on only made the reality strike their home-front all the harder when their criminality rose to heights insuppressible. That threshold was surpassed when all-told in Germany alone there were well over a thousand women who filed police reports over sexual criminality from manhandling to rape and virtually every indiscretion and criminal act inbetween in just the first week of the new year. Now that this dirty little secret has been exposed and reporting the criminal and anti-social behavior has lost its protective labeling of being racist or worse, we can expect the police to soon be so inundated with complaints that actions, and fairly drastic action at that, will have to be implemented before a general revolt of the citizenry explodes and vigilante justice begins to me meted out by the people. The gamble that the refugees could be allowed to enter into a society for which their life experiences had not prepared them sufficiently for fitting in and that those allowed in without any certification of need or appropriate qualification of actual refugee status was an open invitation for the worst of the worst to rush in under the guise of being in dire need of saving and even remotely thankful for the generosity being given.

 

The initial signs that there was an obvious problem with the influx of presumed refugees was the higher than expected numbers of total refugee population and within that a far higher number and percentage of what has been termed military aged unattached males. The severe imbalance should have been the first signal that something was amiss and the hoped for relief effort was not actually providing relief for families suffering from the civil war tragedies in Syria but rather a planned invasion designed to inundate Europe with an army of disruptors whose presence would prove unmanageable and would tear apart the fabric of European life. The worst part is this first wave is just a precursor for the tsunami waiting in the deep ocean of potential refugees and planted terror functionaries and cell leaders which will come in successive waves already set-up and planned. This entire operation conceived in some back room where the deciders of the fate of millions of Europeans checked their obligations to their nation’s people aside and undertook an ill-advised plunge at the direction of those with the sole intent of bringing the next major conflagration down on Europe. What has become evident is this was a means of forcing Europe to either act in a manner which none have a stomach for, a war of civilized world against the abrasive assault of barbarism or surrender of the society to the ravages of the undeterred hooliganism. The difference is these hooligans do not settle for painting graffiti or other minor criminality, these hooligans are more the ilk of those from European history of a time of Musketeers but without any fear or gentrification even possible. These are marauders who know no limits and are not deterred or cowed by words or threat of arrest as they do not plan on being deterred, arrested or stopped anyway short of in response to overwhelming force. The measures which we now need be unleashed will in and of itself be of such a shocking level, many Europeans would rather suffer the slow long death of their civilization and culture than fight to retain them. That is the entire bet lain out before Europe and her people, do what must or surrender their fate. This is where creeping Sharia takes off the restrictions and demands Europe surrender to what the Islamic world claims is their inevitable future.

That leads us to the question, will Europe survive or simply be the next civilized society to succumb to barbarians who have breached the gates. The real sadness is that the gates were not breached but rather opened wide in a sign that the leaders have no stomach to defend the realm. Now we will witness whether the liberal progressive there is no difference between our culture and their culture can realize the truth and then actually act. Demonstrations and demands that the political class do what they are tasked to do will be of no consequence as your political class had already surrendered you and your children’s and grandchildren’s fate and future to the Islamic demand for their surrender. They have reflected and completely acquiesced to the liberal progressive mantra that there are no real rights or wrongs, all customs and rules of conduct by one group cannot be weighed as better or even more favorable than any other and there is no difference in the transformational societal ethic of European Judeo-Christian based civil rule of law society which is a full two centuries of hard-fought development which led to democratic rule, the rule of law over the rule of men, libertarian rights of the individual, respectful norms of expectations and rise from serfdom through a long, arduous and sometimes excessively violent reforms. The Islamic world had yet to have its Reformation, its Renaissance, its Revolutions taking them out of serfdom, out of authoritarian rule, out of the darkness of a class based existence where might is the only right and suppression by force the only civilizing reality. The leaders of Europe have invited in en-masse a devolutionary force which if left unchecked will return Europe to the stage where one’s right to a civil life was subject to their ability and willingness to use force to establish that right or surrender to a protector.

 

That takes us to delving into the reasoning which can be the sole reasoning for allowing this invasion to such an influence, shock-truth. Shock-truth can be defined as the introduction of an influence or threat so severe that people are forced to make an uncomforting choice between dire actions or complete surrender to a protective enslavement. This could be the final scream of the progressive dreamers of a society ruled by the will and influence of those more noble and knowledgeable than the commoner and who sit atop a power structure which assures them of compliant subjects who have no recourse, or at least none that they are willing to allow. The people of Europe have a simple choice to make, do they wish to return to the days of lords and ladies, kings and queens, barons and baronesses or do they desire the rule of law where all are subject voluntarily to the laws of the lands, government is of, for and by the people and society is ruled through self-control over brute force. The thing which many in western society have forgotten or possibly, with the education system so dumbed-down that history has never been taught, never known is that the polite and law abiding society in which they used to live was accomplished by a series of conflicts, demands, revolutions, and a level of self-imposed, self-control and the agreement that nothing less was ever to be expected or permitted in the societal structure. The secret to modern Western society is that the self has an investment in the society, the self is permitted certain rights which are closely linked to certain responsibilities and for these rights these responsibilities must also be observed. The majority of the people which charged through the open gates and into the most gentrified climes of Western civilization, namely Europe and potentially coming to the United States and a sizeable number already allowed into Canada, have not had their society take the intermediate steps in which the rule of men is slowly and step-by-step introduced and made the way things are done. The Western society is based on contracts between individuals and government where the people demand to be completely in control of their lives and to live respectfully with regard to one’s neighbors. Knowing that each individual cannot be permitted complete autonomy, we will use driving a vehicle as our example, thus ignoring center-line marking which restrict their movement from swerving down the road on whichever side of the marking demarking direction of travel as they please deciding their first half of their trips to drive on the right side and after noon drive on the left side. Instead we have agreed to surrender that small freedom to make driving less perilous. With the progression of time the cities grew and there were more vehicles so a new idea was discovered, roads wise enough to allow for multiple vehicles to share the road side-by-side going in the same direction in addition to the aforementioned centerline agreement. This worked kind-of well but it did increase collisions as people had no restrictions and simply stayed on their side of the centerline but otherwise used the widened road as they pleased. This led to another agreement and we surrendered the freedom of swerving on our side of the centerline to restricting ourselves to lane markers and life became that much more ordered. Then came speed limits, turn signals, seatbelts, gasoline tax and in the not too distant future once electric cars rule the roads, mileage taxes as the government is going to take their slice of your driving freedom no matter what we wish individually. If we were to gather and as a group demand there never be a mileage tax, then that as the will of the people would win out.

 

The new influx of people do not understand that concept and instead believe that one is to do as they please until forced to restrain themselves and as soon as those restraints are not present returning to taking all they can by individual right of force. They have not developed the limiting constraints of total freedom. Initially, when introduced to a society where self-restraint is the rule of interactions, those raised with the concept of take what you can, when you can, wherever you can and do not allow anybody to tell you different for that if they do not back their demand up with overwhelming force and you believe you are the stronger, then ignore them and rebuke them with force if they do not understand your rights over their rights. These differently civilized believe in what we call the rule of the jungle, there are predators, then, and there is prey, how they view the people of Europe. The next step is easy, as long as the predator is of sufficient strength and power they feed on the prey but if the prey possesses massively superior numbers or size on their side the predator might decide to seek lesser prey on which to feed. Simple example is even a lion will choose to take down and eat a gazelle or antelope but hesitated when facing a herd of Cape Buffalo or a bull elephant. At the other extreme a lion will not challenge or even attempt to resist giving up their kill if a troop of hundreds of baboons challenge them over who gets the prize, the kill and who goes away still hungry. The leaders of Europe have allowed in a large and extremely aggressive troop of baboons, actually a number of troops of baboons and even our appointed lions, the police, are cowed and afraid to approach and restrain the troops as they run marauding and destroying the savannah where buildings grow as grasses and European lives are being destroyed. The lions can and will protect the sheeple but only if the sheeple can become more like cape Buffalos than sheeple. Up until now the standing rule in Europe was endeavor to persevere and otherwise to ignore the “little” inconveniences of the refugees as they became more acclimated to European society and the rules of the playground. Well, surprise, surprise; these refugees, or at least a large segment of those who came with them, have decided that the entirety of the playground is their game and they are the alpha-predators and Europeans simply do not matter as they are the Dhimmi, the kafir, they are those who Allah does not protect and thus if they do not protect themselves, then Allah’s will is for them to be subjugated by the true recipients of Allah’s will. Read their societal guidebook, we know it as the Quran but for all intents and purposes their guidebook may as well be the recently republished Mein Kampf which apparently had been purchased in unprecedented numbers such that it makes one wonder who are purchasing Mein Kampf and what are their plans for utilizing it.

Mein Kampf, the Quran, for those who are not of the defined chosen ones have no rights, no recourse, no hope unless they find a champion who will save them. Often these champions prove to be a bigger problem and bring greater ruination in the society when the results are measured. Simply look through history and it is replete with stories of the ruination brought by saviors. The French Revolution brought disorder and mass slaughters and the French needed a savior. Enter Napoleon Bonaparte and the disorder was ordered and then came the fall of France. The Romans needed somebody to repair their aging and slowly sinking society and enter the Caesars as a god-like status and absolute ruler banishing the Senate and any pretenses and Rome’s fate was thus sealed. The Czars had become too demanding and the Russian economy was negligent if not completely absent so they needed a savior. They attempted a form of democracy which was not given the necessary time and enter Lenin with “The Plan” and we know where that led for millions and millions of people and the ramifications’ ripples are still bouncing within the walls of Russia. Sure there have been saviors whose plan appears to have worked, the Founding Fathers of the United States, but they were a committee of as unlikely saviors as one could imagine, a group of gentrified aristocrats intent on forming a government of the people, of the masses for they know that the people as a whole have more ability to rule themselves given the correct tools.

But even the “Great Experiment in self-rule” which was, and for the time being still is, the United States still survives though many of its basic principles have been and are under assaulted and when any one branch of their governance breaks, the end will be in sight even if the visibility is clouded by the smoke and mirrors which will be used. There will come those who offer the promises of great changes and deepest hopes though both will be undefined, and in that lack of clarity lays the greatest lie of them all, the lies we tell ourselves that everything is fine, there is no threat, no problem, no reason to get all flustered and heated over, it will work itself out. Will it this time? Is this imported and continuing importation of this other which is not us, does not understand us, does not assimilate and become another part of us, will we prevail or will this be the blow that takes the timbers out from beneath us? These are your question Europe and as you decide, so likely will the rest of the Western World and the few who hold out will either be the sole hope for the future or eventually sink into the mire as it is being permitted to subsume all we hold dear, whether we know what it is or where we are guaranteed such. There is no surrender so pitiful as the one given without a fight for that is the voluntary subjugation. Is that the point that the Western World has sunk. Perhaps the only way to end this editorial, this excuse for commentary is to quote a giant amongst men who was treasured and reviled by his peers but he will always be respected no matter one’s loving embrace of his council or hateful spite begrudging him any credit he may be due, Samuel Adams will forever be the patriot for it was he who laid out so clearly the choice of his time, and it has now come to be our choice in our time. We know here where our feet will make that final stand when this is the time of decision. Samuel Adams explained it as such,

 

 

“If ye love wealth better than liberty,
the tranquility of servitude
better than the animating contest of freedom,
go home from us in peace.
We ask not your counsels or your arms.
Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you.
May your chains set lightly upon you,
and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.”
