Is what is going on in Iraq and Syria more evidence of the worlds most prolific terrorist state in action once more?
Yes, that’s right. America, the worlds most prolific terrorist state and orchestrator of regime changes across the world is at it again.
Daash, ISIS, ISIL, IS or whatever their handlers in the US want you to call them these days are a creation of the US. They are using US material and are paid for by the US.
The only reason the US is taking its token action is because they are overstepping their bounds in Iraq and because it gives the cover story for attacking the Syrian government in Syria.
No sensible person thinks that a mobile guerrilla force can be overcome by lobbing bombs at them, but the establishment that is Syria can be.
There’s a goal here. Qatar wants a pipeline running to Europe carrying its gas. Syria and Iran do not want the pipeline to cross Syria and so a regime change, or destabilisation is needed.
The US want the pipeline in order that the European oligopoly of gas supply can be broken in order to cause economic problems for Russia.
Right now, Turkey will not intervene because Daash are beating up on the Kurds in northern Syria and the US will not put their own troops into play because Iran and Syria have a mutual defence treaty and the US can’t deal with a proper army, at least not without logistical support, and Turkey won’t give such support because of their covert support for Daash against the PKK.
The underlying problem though is that the US seeks a destabilised middle east because in that manner, by picking alliances and ‘friends for now’, they get, in their worldview, to control the last major supplies of hydrocarbons outside of Russia. And, of course, for the US, Russia is the final frontier.
This mess is devised and stirred up by America for its own interests.
I have written before now about levels of reality and how people see the world from their own level and do not see or understand the different levels that affect their own worldview.
This is another of those cases.
Ask a bloke with a gun and a big knife for chopping off heads what he is doing, and why, and he might say, ‘with the money I earn I can afford another wife’.
A more perceptive bloke with a gun and a big knife for chopping off heads might say, ‘I am rebuilding the caliphate according to the will of Mohammed, blessed be his name.’ And both would be right.
But then there’s John McCain who has been meeting with the leadership and their view is ‘Well John, we understand what you want and thanks for the money and training that your guys have provided. The pipeline will be safe to build once we have taken care of the inland region of Syria for you and can you do something to get the Turks to close their borders to the Kurds?’
See what I mean? Yes the establishment of a new Islamic state may be an overarching goal of Daash, Da’esh, ISIS, IS, ISIL but there’s a lot of other stuff going on.
Same as in Ukraine and now in Hong Kong. In both places I have friends who genuinely support the purpose of the demonstrations. They honestly believe that what is going on is good and right.
They do not know that they have been purposefully misled or that the demonstrations have been paid for and instigated by the US.
Even if they were to choose to understand that fact they may well still choose to ignore the larger picture ill effects of the demonstrations in order to serve the smaller picture that they see.
Levels of reality are a very important part of the toolbox of manipulation of populations. Continue reading
Car Sales: Do Gentlemen’s Agreements Apply? Is your word your bond?
What if you are offered much more money for what you are selling?
What if as a buyer, a much better deal just fell in your lap?
A guy recently said to me about a car transaction: “I’m old school and for me trust is everything, even if no deposit was given” – This was a guy who had agreed in principle to buy a car over the telephone and email. The seller sold the car to someone else while this guy was making arrangements to collect it and pay.
The old school guy thought the seller had committed some heinous crime. I didn’t agree. I said without a deposit there is no firm deal.
Even with a deposit, the seller would have had the option to refund it and accept more money from someone else. I might frown on someone who does that, but not much can be done. At the end of the day, it is his car to do as he pleases with until you have paid for it and drove away in it.
If I were selling something and someone was talking a good job but hadn’t put the money on the table, or even a good non-returnable deposit, I would not consider him serious and the car would still be for sale.
I learned years ago that speed is of the essence when buying anything at right money.
When I got the call that [what is now] my car was available to view, it was about 10am, I dropped what I was doing drove right over and it was on my drive paid for by 2pm. To do otherwise would have risked me losing it. And understandably so.
Gentlemens agreements are all very well if backed up by a non-returnable grand in twenties as a deposit. Without some money, its just some folks talking.
Here is what happened with a car I recently bought:
I did a provisional deal with my neighbour, who is a trader, on a Range Rover he had. I really wanted black with black leather, and this one was green with cream leather, but a very nice car, and he chooses cars well and knows his eggs, so I thought I would compromise on colour.
Instead of asking him to hold it as such, I said I would have my money ready within a week or two, and if he still had it I would have it.
Then he started driving all over the world in it. I offered him £2k deposit to park it up on his drive till I was ready – I didn’t want 2k extra miles on it. He declined and said he enjoyed driving it.
So a week or two later, I was ready. I collared him walking his dog early evening and said pop round with the docs and keys and I would cross his palm with some cash and do the deal. Naturally, I was itching to get my new motor.
He starts humming and hawing saying he had had a long day, was tired and maybe we will do it tomorrow. Confused
I dunno about you chaps, but someone is offering me five figures, I am there faster than you can turn on the light. How long does it take to give a bloke a log book and count some money? (I even have a machine for the latter.)
The following morning I collared him again and said “lets get on with it”. He said he wanted to use it today as he had some errands to do, wanted to get it mini valeted for me and lets fix 4pm as a time to do the deal. I just wanted to smoke off to work in it. As you do. But I reluctantly agreed 4pm anyway. Had he have delayed then, I would have said keep it. I was getting a bit miffed by now.
To rewind a tad, a few weeks prior, a chap I know who sells vans heard word of a nice black Range Rover coming in via a friend of a friend. “My mate said it is a proper thing” was the only cagey description I had of a car that may never materialise. Back then I expressed interest at having first look if and when it ever arrived. That was all a bit wishy washy and nothing to hang your hat on.
Then what happened…….
Half an hour after I had agreed to do the deal at 4pm, the other guy calls me up and says “Remember that Range Rover we talked about? Its here and exactly the one you wanted – and mint. Its in the trader and the phone is melting, but I promised you first shout, so get over here if you want first call”.
Well it was my preferred colour and spec, but it was also half the miles, a year newer, one owner against three, and a grand cheaper than the one I had just agreed to buy. It was a no brainer on-the-spot buy. £2k cheaper than it was in the trader at (he took no profit as he is old school with pals), and the phone was melting for it while I was there looking.
But that meant cocking on the one I had already agreed to buy. Shocked
Had my neighbour have taken the money when offered, the green one would have been on the drive and it would all be too late. As he had been faffing for two days and refused a deposit even, a more suitable one came along purely by chance. I reasoned it was his own fault for not taking the money when it was offered.
I had to make the call pulling out of the green one. I am very much a man of my word, and had he have thrown his dummy out of the pram, I would have bought it anyway and simply sold it on. As it was, he was pretty cool about it, he agreed the one I had found was a no-brainer at the money, and he has since popped a dateless plate on his one and decided to use it as his own car over winter.
So in that particular case, no harm was done, but in that case, I very uncharacteristically reneged on a deal I had verbally agreed to – although no money had changed hands. Which I think is the crux of the matter.
So what do you think?
Is a deal not a deal without money on the table?
Or is a gentleman’s agreement more important?
Or is a seller getting more money, or a buyer finding a much better car at the last minute a no-brainer? Continue reading
Known as ‘economic counter-jihad’, the recent brutal murder of the soldier Lee Rigby on a London street in broad daylight in the name of Islam is the straw that has broke the camels back across much of the UK.
The British have traditionally been reasonably open to immigration in modest numbers. However, what happens when mass immigration begins to irreparably damage the host country?
The suburb of Husby in Sweden has over the last week had rioting by Muslim youths.
In Sweden, the Muslim population has doubled in the last fourteen years, with Muslims now accounting for over 41% of Sweden’s total population growth.
In February, the Economist reported that in Sweden, only 51 percent of non-Europeans have a job, compared with over 84 percent of native Swedes.
Brits have been watching world events closely since the 2001 September 11th attack on the United States. Again, perpetrated in the name of Islam.
Looking at Europe, the future isn’t looking too bright for many in areas that have high Muslim populations. Muslims rioted in Denmark over a cartoon. They rioted in France. They tend to start rioting, burning things and attacking their host country anywhere in the west they choose to live in significant numbers.
Many feel that Muslims do not seek to integrate with British society and seek to purposely separate themselves from the indigenous British people.
The reason for this it is claimed, is that Islam is fundamentally incompatible with the traditional British way of life and British core values.
The political blogger Pat Condell sums up the feelings of many British people in one of his videos you can watch below.
Its easy to allow people their harmless religious beliefs isn’t it?
We are told Muslims don’t drink alcohol or eat pork. Yet those substances do not offend them enough that they wont sell them to us from their corner shops. What kind of a double standard is that?
Every couple of months, we hear about another gang of men from third world countries in the UK who groom, abuse and rape white girls. The fuzzy thinking leftist media always manages to omit the glaringly obvious common denominator. See if you can spot it.
Here is a clue, their names are Ahdel, Mubarek, Mohammed, Tanveer, Mohammed, and Mohammed. Yes, you have guessed it. Muslims again.
We are told time and time again that to somehow mention this stuff is racist. Saying anything non complimentary about Muslims or Islam is very often labelled as racist.
One bit they always seem to overlook. It cannot possibly be racist because Islam isn’t a race. Its a religion. Perhaps its actually religionist? But wait! They invented a new word: Islamaphobia. An invented word that means prejudice against, hatred towards, or irrational fear of Muslims. Irrational, huh?
Is it irrational not to want to see this in London?
Should we tell ourselves that we are being inclusive by even permitting this? Is it conveniently Islamaphobic to object to this?
If you are worried that you might be Islamphobic, the man who should be PM, Pat Condell, has an easy tutorial on the word.
So what is to be done about the cultural terrorism we find ourself faced with at the hands of Islam?
As we are civilised British people, burning mosques likely isn’t at the top of our list unless we are from the underclass. Nor is beating up Muslims in the street. Those things are not only illegal, they are impractical and not what normal people do.
Repatriation of Muslims back to their own countries? Not much chance of any EU government ever sanctioning that.
Close the door to further immigration? That would be a good start. However, our Prime Minister Cameron is more interested in not offending Islam like most of the establishment. He seems more interested in gay marriage. Unless the UK votes Nigel Farrage as the next Prime Minister, any pretence at closing the immigration door is only empty words designed to win votes. It wont actually happen.
More and more British people are starting to think the only way to represent their feelings in a way that may make a difference is economic counter-jihad. Lets put that in simpler terms: Boycotting Muslim businesses.
The theory is that when one arrives, twenty six of his nearest and dearest wont be far behind. Many Muslim immigrants seek to import their entire families to the UK. Unfortunately, some of those seek to import with them their terrorism and hatred of the west.
How do they do that? Well, most of them start businesses and work. Credit to them for that. But they build their money up by being frugal, by doing their best to spend only in their own communities and with each other. This means a constant drain of money from indigenous British people to the Muslim community. Most of that money is on a one way street into that community. It never comes back to our local butcher, baker or candlestick maker.
Where do you think the money to build all the mosques comes from? It comes from you spending your money with Muslim businesses. The same money that gets saved up to buy Pakistan International Airlines flights from Islamabad to the United Kingdom (no, they don’t use BA) to import yet more of them.
Now most us know that only a small minority of Muslims feel strongly enough against our society to commit acts of terrorism here. We know many are quite westernised and moderate. But many (not just a few) hold views – encouraged by their holy book – that is at odds with the values in traditional British society. Why we see calls for Sharia courts, why we constantly read of abuse of white women, genital mutilation of young girls, our children being forced to eat Halal meat in schools, etc. Why they separate themselves from us, why they don’t socialise with us, why there are so few inter-cultural marriages, etc.
The only time most of them do interact with us is to take our money. Even if they are selling you products their religion dictates banned like pork and alcohol.
I was sent this image below this week in a pass-it-along type email.
Think how much of your disposable income goes into Muslim businesses never to be returned to our community.
Think how many corner shops, newsagents, off licences, restaurants, car washes, petrol stations and market stalls there are collecting your money.
Some of that money will be funding building of unwanted mosques in our towns, some of it will be funding yet more arrivals from the third world. Some of those will commit acts of terror in our communities. Some of those will seek to abuse our children. Not all by any means; but some. Many of them will drain our vital resources like schools and healthcare.
Many of them work in cash industries like take away food and market stalls. That means many don’t pay any tax. Of course the tax office doesnt chase them because to do so would be Islamphobic. Or racist. Or both.
We Brits like our Indian food. In reality it will never be possible to stop spending at Muslim businesses altogether. But when you have a choice? When the newsagent just down the road is owned by Mr Jones, and the one across the street is owned by Mohammed, will you walk down the street instead?
Would you withhold money from Muslim businesses?
Maybe you have been quietly doing it for years anyway?
Do you think it reasonable to start to consider not spending money with Muslim businesses?
