Brother Nathanael @ September 6, 2022
Superseding Biden’s psycho-babble, Trump struck the final blow.
Stirring the scuffle, Biden—in a flood of jibber-jabble—drew first blood. [Clip]
[“Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic. The Republican Party today is dominated, driven, and intimidated by Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans, and that is a threat to this country.”]
Trump hits back. [Clip]
[“As you know this week Joe Biden came to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to give the most vicious, hateful and divisive speech ever delivered by an American president, vilifying 75 million citizens, plus another probably 75 to 150, if we want to be accurate about it.
As threats to democracy and as enemies of the state, you’re all enemies of the state. He’s an enemy of the state, you want to know the truth? The enemy of the state is him and the group that control him, which is circling around him, ‘Do this. do that Joe, you’re going to do this Joe. Right.’ I think Philadelphia was a great choice to make this speech of hatred and anger. His speech was hatred and anger. By the way, the next morning he forgot what he said, you saw that.”]
But his Jewish PR zookeepers—Sheila Grant, senior speechwriter (with a goyisha name-change as decoy); and Carlyn Reichel, White-hating Jewish gargoyle—have not forgotten what Biden said.
Ratcheting up the anti-MAGA screed on doddering Joe’s Twitter feed is their stock and trade.
Weaponizing division is the way they get paid. [Clip]
[“MAGA forces are determined to take this country backwards—backwards to an America where there is no right to choose, no right to privacy, no right to contraception, no right to marry who you love.”]
“The Handmaids Tale.”
Set in an indeterminate dystopian future of what had been the United States but is now the Republic of Gilead, enslaved young fertile women are forced to get pregnant in a Puritanical ‘Christian’ theocracy, where most females—such as the wives of the Commander ruling class—are rendered sterile because of environmental toxicity.
Replete with mutilated distortions of Holy Scripture…
“Remember your Scripture. Blessed are the meek.”
…highlighting extreme subjugation and reproductive tyranny, the fertile young women are dressed as commodity-owned handmaids of the male Commander elite.
It’s a leftist drama— that’s become a meme of political protest today—misrepresenting Christianity as a milieu of subjugation and oppression of women.
The ‘Republic of Gilead’ lives in Biden’s head—I mean in his Jew speechwriters’ heads—peopled it with Christian conservatives (aka ‘MAGA Republicans”)—with whom they equate reproductive tyranny denying the “right” to abortion, unnatural sex acts, and purportedly, contraception.
Sleight of hand deception.
At the top of Jewish list of tricks is to get people fixed on the wrong rights:
“Trans-rights as social rights;”
“Reproductive rights as fundamental rights;”
“Gay rights as equality rights;”
“Healthcare rights as human rights.”
It’s all theatrical magic concocted by the Jewish apparatchik.
Customize misdirection to turn the American moron’s head sidetracking him from rights that really matter:
Pursuit of property; privacy rights; preventing lawless Jew-directed DOJ searches and seizures; right of free speech that the Jew-run state colludes with Faceberg to censor; right to self-defense; right of assembly during plandemics; and right of deciding medical procedures in the face of gene-manipulating fake vaccines.
The leftists, the mid-rung jews, the Woke males, the blue-haired women, think they are free if vacuum suction tubes plunge their uteruses, penises ejaculate in their anuses, and dildos breach their vaginas.
Yet they are simply slaves of the state.
I mean the state that fears autonomous regions of households, domicile independence, property possession, and bounded-together communities.
Got your tranny and reproductive rights?
Jew-run Big Gov loves you.

Speaking truth to power, Brother Nathanael a voice crying in a wilderness of sodomite Jews.
To the NPC rank-and-file Jews out there, it is never too late to repent. Almighty God will reap justice and the earth will open up a great furnace that will consume all who defy the Lord of Hosts.
Israel, turn from your wicked ways!
Biden’s accusations were really more suitable for himself and his supporters.
And let us remember that Biden’s main speechwriter is a Jewess: Carlyn Reichel.
Jews are the cancer eating away at what is left of this country.
Margaret Atwood, who wrote “The Handmaiden’s Tale,” was born an a–hole, has lived her life as an a–hole, and will go to her grave as an a–hole.
She is not a hebe, but has been hebed out and grovelling to the jews for her whole life.
She taught “nature” studies at a jewish summer camp called “White Pine.”
The litmus test showing who she sucks up to, to get lots of media coverage is that she was awarded a $1 million dollar literary prize from Israel for her work but had to return $100 K to Israel to show she was grovelling at their feet.
Her whole life has been not just a waste of time for people who read her books but for herself as well. She lives on snake infested Pelee Island in Lake Erie which is somehow just. Nothing like a forked tongue to reveal your true character.
I think it was in the 1980s that I began to notice that whenever any politician espoused a Christian position, that I would see commentaries like, ‘doesn’t this guy remind you of Nehemiah Scudder?”
Nehemiah Scudder was a character created by a science-fiction author back in the 1930s.
A television evangelist who was elected president (thanks to the Electoral College) and who then installed a puritanical dictatorship. I wouldn’t be surprised if Margaret Atwood got her inspiration for The Handmaid’s Tale from it.
My point being that anything short of total moral license is now viewed as tyrannical oppression by the left, and even to speak of such is a threat.
These Zionist billionaire and trillionaire oligarchs are the reconstituted Sanhedrin from 2000 years ago.
They are the leadership of the Synagogue of Satan, and their obsession is to bring forth the Antichrist and to Mock God by their Total Domination and destruction of His creation, planet earth.
They would, if they could, torture and murder Jesus Christ every second of every day for eternity, but they have no such power, so they devote their time to engineering the torture and death of all those who however feebly, reach out to the creator for salvation.
All the rest is in His hands, and the hardest part for me is having enough faith to rest in his promise of victory over Lucifer and his legions, and to overcome the feeling of total impotence in the face of the enemy.
Alex Jones proves manga Republicans threat to hologram as he confessed to randy book shoah.
There is all this entitled talk of “Rights” without mentioning any of the Responsibilities which must accompany them.
Like Shylock, who demands his pound of flesh as his “right” but is charged by Portia to also accept the responsibility of not spilling a drop of Antonio’s blood or taking more or less than an exact pound, lest he forfeit that “right”.
If the godless slaves of the State demand abortion rights then they must also accept the responsibilities of their choice, like the greatly increased risk of developing breast cancer caused by the disruption of a healthy viable pregnancy, which leaves breast tissue vulnerable to the proliferation of immature, cancer-prone lobules.
Better start saving up for that double mastectomy now.
You can’t make this up….
Scott Ritter got sorted out today a man named Alkexander who is the commander of the Vostock Battalion.
Near the end of the interview, Ritter went into his usual Nazis are the problem rant, a by product of growing up on American war hero movies, but he got short stopped by Alexander.
Aexander said the problem is not the nazis who have no power but the Ukrainian Oligarchs who looted Ukraine and hate Russia, and buy the guns for the so called Nazis. He said the Oligarchs don’t fight or send their children to war but just loot the Ukraine.
Unfortunately neither man had the balls to call a spade a spade, or to be more accurate an Ashkenazi jew a jew, because that is who they all are. This war is driven solely by jews, the most despicable of them all being America’s Federal Reserve Bank.
If you want to stop all wars take down the jewish central banks in every country on earth.
Only Bro Nat has the courage to call a jew a jew.
I can’t fathom out how the Conservative Party has plumbed a dumb shiksa into the top job.
When it was apparent outside No. 10 jobs were only going to her mates, (not meritocracy) the Tory stiff collar, bowler hat, Jacob-Rees-Mogg looked visibly worried with what he was going to have to work alongside, warning of the plethora of problems facing this new click.
The one ray of light is both once great Nations will each have a leader equally dumb and dangerous whereby the resulting civil strife will confront and defeat the wicked elements in both Nations.
Assuming, that is, another Lothario can keep the shiksa’s hands and mind off the button.
In the meantime, the “Lizard” and “Brandon” can “blather” away.
Looks like the brain sauce is going to be magnetized today.
They’re sterile because of the jews’ coYID mRNA immunological and reproductive DNA destroying forced injections.
Blessed are the sheeple.
Citizenfitz, I might comment on your blog if it didn’t require logging into Google.
Let’s be honest here. The Jews are in control of Western Civilization. And by that I mean all of Europe, Australia, and North America. They got this control by owning media, courts, corporations, and politicians. They are not going to give it up and you cannot take it from them. We will have to wait until they destroy themselves through arrogance.
You can try to inform others, but the Jewish indoctrination is strong. News outlets and social media are the sources of Jewish indoctrination. Let’s face it though, we (White people) have not been that good to each other either. We have not followed the golden rule between ourselves. Our own politicians profit from our misery, we constantly seek to outdo one another, and even betray our own to the Jew who rules over us.
It looks like the Jew is trying to get America attacked by either Russia, China, North Korea, or others. Think of yourselves as Lot leaving a doomed civilization. If you can, leave the city. Don’t live near any military installation. Live close to the border so you can cross over if you need to. Keep your tank fueled and 30 days food and water.

Off subject but important for the uninformed
The theological basis of Christian support for the state of Israel (i.e. Christian Zionism) is a theology called Dispensationalism.
In their recent 1 hour TV broadcast Trunews gives a very simple explanation of this theology and its consequences.
At approx 15min the absurd theological beliefs of dispensationalists is set out.
Whenever you hear Christians mention the Rapture, you can assume they are Dispensationalists since the Rapture is the lynchpin of this theology
To Dispensationalists Christ returns twice, once at the rapture and once during the 2nd coming
Dispensationalism stands in direct opposition to covenantal theology
Traditional churches (e.g. Anglican, Roman Catholic, Methodist etc.) have always rejected Dispensationalism whereas Pentecostal and Evangelical ones embrace it.
Dispensationalism is largely a 20th century doctrine of American protestant churches. It did not exist before that and is largely ignored/unknown outside the USA.
Dispensationalism was largely the creation of John Darby and popularized by Cyrus Scofield, both of whom are considered very questionable characters.
Moody embraced Dispensationalism and Spurgeon opposed it.
It was popularized by Hal Lindsey in “The Late Planet Earth” and by the Tim La Haye “Left Behind” series (which allegedly sold 80m copies).
Ideas have consequences, and this is particularly true in the realm of theology.
The Palestinians (many of whom are Christians) have had their land stolen from them and are treated with daily brutality. Yet instead of coming to the aid of the under-dog a blind eye is turned to this injustice by Pentecostal/Evangelical churches as this is apparently a consequence of God’s plan for the end times, or so Dispensationalists rationalize!
How many missionaries to Muslim nations are hampered in their fulfillment of the Great Commission by the impossible task of having to justify why a considerable number of US churches support Israel (thanks to this false theology!)
Christians are slow to criticize Jews even though most streams of poison that run through European nations (e.g. Bolshevism, Socialism, Communism, Neo-conservatism, Cultural Marxism, Mass Immigration, LBGT+, etc.), and are wrecking their economic, cultural, ethnic and political structure all which can be traced to these people as a collective group (read “the International Jew” by Henry Ford).
Would this “get out of jail free card” end if this theology was confined to the dustbin?
Yes ideas have consequences and the consequences of this false theology are truly profound.
There is an interesting website from India called Gravitas.
They just carried a story about how Israel is afraid because they say Iran is targeting its citizens in other countries.
This of course is just tit for tat, if true. The Israelis have been murdering the citizens and journalists of other countries since their inception. They killed the Canadian Gerald Bull, have killed 2,800 Iranians and killed 3,000 Americans on 9/11.
Is it any wonder that other countries have begun to kill Israelis and the oligarchs, who are just just criminal jews in other countries.
Recently in Canada, some Iranians were arrested and jailed for mapping out the homes of Toronto’s richest jews. I assume the plan was to kill them.
One Oligarch was even killed at Canary Wharf in London.
Ref. Jim Stone’s personal Web-Blog (most recent entries top-most on screen)
“Watch a Jewish she-demon promote transgender surgeries to kids on TikTok. I confirmed she’s indeed a Jew. We all know who’s pushing this nation destroying crap.
Nice to have confirmation.”
Hibernian, but for Jim Stone’s assertion that this woman is a Jewess, would have claimed that she is Irish.

Textual critique Re: accompanying Tik-Tok format video-advert (3 minutes);
News is breaking of extreme concern for our Queen.
I know she is ninety-seven, a great age, having served so impeccably all these years, tradition being she bids adieu to the outgoing PM and greeting again in person the new PM.
Etiquette aside, for our exemplary Monarch to meet, shake hands, and parley with an imbecilic shiksa could well have precipitated her turn for the worse.
Apart from a few detractors, millions the world over will be saddened, and the many will be praying for her.
Is it illegal to know who all the private shareholders of all the world’s entral banks are?
Finding out that single tid bit will let the genie out of the bottle.
It ought to be illegal to hide something that important.
So Thing Lizzy was a liberal democrat 30 years ago, calling for the abolition of the monarchy - and hitting other commie bullet points - yet she’s had “conservative” conversion?
What things do today’s conservatives say and do that are distinguishable from what today’s socialists say and do?
The Queen? She was a fine looking girl in her day, wasn’t she? And she showed great composure when that nut jumped out and fired a starting gun at her.
That was ironic in a peculiarly British way: shooting a fake gun at a figurehead ruler.
This is all already written on the script of the New World Order as Maurice Samuel (among others) clearly wrote a century ago in his book “You Gentiles”.
A powerful minority of the members of the American Congress are Jews, not to mention the CEOs of most companies in every sector of public life.
The West is completely hostage to globalist Zionism which does not care at all to send Goym armies or entire Gentiles countries to the slaughterhouse.
Indeed it fits perfectly into the Jewish ideology clearly expressed by the words of MAURICE SAMUEL:
“Between you Gentiles and us Jews there is an impassable chasm.”
“We Jews are the destroyers and we will remain the destroyers. Nothing you can do will meet our demands and our needs. We will destroy forever because we want a world of our own.”
MAURICE SAMUEL (from his book Vous GENTILES, 1924, page 155).
ARIEL SHARON: “Israel controls the United States and the Americans know it”.
The West is so subjugated since at least 250 years by Jewish propaganda and financial power that it cannot even imagine who its real master and jailer is, and if there is anyone who puts it under its nose, it turns away at the cry of antisemitism, conspiracy, racism, etc.
This story will soon and dramatically be over because Russia has no intention at all of submitting to Anglo-Zionist Globalism, for which (and for the West in general) the confrontation with Russia will simply result in suicide.
For peoples like Russians, with deeply rooted spirituality (completely destroyed in the West colonized by Zionism through massive Jewish infiltration in the Roman Catholic Church to the point that since 64 years the Holy See is under its full control), it is better to die as martyrs who testify to their faith than to live in the New (Satanic) World Order and loosing their souls.
Westerners, secretly corrupted by Jewish money, don’t understand at all this behavior and will understand it when - according to Putin’s words - they no longer have even the time to repent. This is the top of the tragedy by which countless souls will be affected all over the world.
Queen Elizabeth Placed Under Medical Supervision, Doctors ‘Concerned’ For Her Health
Queen Elizabeth II of England’s doctors recommended she be placed under medical supervision Thursday.
Daily Caller | 8 September 2022
Royal medical staff, concerned for the queen’s health, recommended she remain under their supervision at her home at Balmoral Castle following evaluation Thursday morning, according to a statement shared on the Royal website.
Her son, Prince Charles, as well as his wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, and her grandson Prince William have traveled to the Scottish castle to be with the queen, CNN reported.
The queen met Tuesday with Britain’s latest Prime Minister, Liz Truss. The royal cancelled a meeting Wednesday with her Privy Council, a source told ABC News.
No further information was provided on her majesty’s condition, other than she is heeding her doctor’s advice to rest, ABC noted.
Queen Elizabeth II’s family gathers at Balmoral Castle as doctors monitor health.
Lizard Truss did say some 27 years ago that the Royal Dynasty was “disgraceful” and that she would abolish the English Monarchy.
What did this demoness do to the Queen?
The Queen is dead.
Queen Elizabeth: Britain will fall into chaos when the queen is dead.
When Queen Elizabeth dies ‘Operation London Bridge’ will be set in motion.
Don’t be surprised if they “got her out of the way”.
The Queen is dead. Long live the King.
God grant her eternal rest. God save the King.
Queen Elizabeth II dead at 96
The U.K.’s longest reigning monarch passed away surrounded by family at Balmoral Castle.
Just the News
Queen Elizabeth II passed away “peacefully” on Thursday afternoon at 96, surrounded by family at Balmoral Castle in Scotland, according to a statement from Buckingham Palace.
The Royal Family
The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon.
The King and The Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow.
12:30 PM CDT
Officials announced earlier in the day that the queen was under medical supervision, and her family traveled to her summer residence in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, to be by her side.

A statement from His Majesty The King:
Clarence House, the former Prince of Wales’ official residence, has now declared that he will be known officially as King Charles III.
Camilia will be officially known as the Queen Consort.
As of today Bitchute seems to be shutting down a lot of interesting bloggers.
The jew boys don’t like losing control of the narrative.
It is beginning to hurt.
I’d like to express my condolences to all those who held the Queen dear to their heart.
She was crowned in 1952, back when England was a White country. I was there for three years in the 60s.
Well, she lived a long life. And, I assume she lived well.
Tucker Carlson: This is why they are attacking Queen Elizabeth II
8 September 2022
Fox News host Tucker Carlson reflects on Queen Elizabeth II’s life and legacy on ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight.’
I see where Elizabeth Saxe-Coubourg and Gotha, Queen of England under the last name Windsor, has died.
In Germany the press has been prattling on about how another royal, Furst Gloria Thurn and Taxis, is not going to attend the funeral because she is Catholic. She is supposed to be the second richest woman in Germany.
The difference between the Catholic religion and the Anglican religion seems to be that Anglicans pledge allegiance to the king or queen and Catholics pledge allegiance to the pope.
The idea that Gloria Furst Thurn and Taxis is Catholic is news to me because I hunted with her former husband, Joachim Graf Schoenberg twice, or for a month in total and sat around the campfire with a bottle of Scotch telling stories.
A Graf is the German equivalent of a prince, but we called him the no-account count. Joe himself told me she is a jew not a Catholic. Jews like to glom on to royals in Europe or movie stars in America, people with a following.
Joe left her for a very good looking bar tart named Ursula who worked for a magazine called Pirsch. Ursula was a young bombshell while Furst Gloria was a bit old and shop worn. I think he made the right call.
That leaves us with King Chuck, whose name will lead to a number of limericks such as “There once was a King named Chuck, “Who none of the girls waned to kiss” and so on.
Royals and jews both have inbreeding problems get from trying to hang on to the money. When you cross them you end up with people who have bad teeth and are not good at mathematics.
Maybe now that Megan Markle’s blood is part of the royal family, hybrid vigour will kick in and Megan and Harry will produce a couple of little O.J. Simpsons to help make the world a better place.
Oh what a tangled tale we weave.
Ref. The polemic from Tucker Carlson in support of The British Empire
Tucker Carlson — & perhaps speechwriter/s (who may indeed include Jews given that the channel is Murdoch-the-Jew-Fox-News) which he sometimes collaborates with — is:
1_ correct that the British Empire did deposit beneficial infrastructure in much of its empire. By the way, not all territories of its empire were colonies (e.g. Scotland)
2_ wrong that the British Empire did not commit genocide”s”; e.g. The British committed many genocides upon the Irish e.g.s
2_1_Elizabeth I’s reconquest of Ireland involving:
2_1_1_ slash-&-burn of forests (Ireland was mostly oak-forest, & not known for being “Emerald”, then) & tillage so as to induce mass famine in those territories, 2_1_2_ mass-deportation for slavery in North America, & Caribbean
2_2_ Cromwell re-conquest of Ireland involving 2_2_1_ slaughter, & 2_2_2_ mass-burnings on stakes of families & individuals, &
2_1_3_ world-history’s 1st use of concentration camps (think Meadows open-style USA-UK occupation of Germany),
2_1_4_ mass-deportation of Irish as slaves to North America, & Caribbean
Net result; Irish population genocided by 2/3rds down to some 300,000 only.
Note; Cromwell’s regime was financed by the Jews. And, Cromwell murdered numerically-more English Catholics in England than Irish by the way.
3_3_occasional mass-starvation of Irish during further periods of British colonialism
4_3_planned, & executed, mass-starvation of Irish during the years deceitfully referred by “royal-court historians” as “The-Great-Irish-Famine”; There was never a famine then; “Famine” means “land devoid of food self-sufficiency”, & Ireland was actually flush with bumper harvests of crops & livestock food.
But, most of it exported under massive military escorts. The British Empire had a standing army of some 200,000 placed in Ireland. The true historians call that period “The-Great-Hunger”.
Yes, just one of many great hungers during British Empirical rule of Ireland. Population of Ireland immediately prior to The-Great-Hunger was some 10.5 millions. Population of Ireland at end of The-Great-Hunger was some 4.5 million.
The number 2 million in the following article hosted by Winterwatch is wrong.
The actual number should be close to 5 million.
What you say is true. The first slaves working on the Caribbean sugar plantations were not blacks. They were Irish. They were called “red legs” because their light colored skin burned in the sun.
Hopefully this will not lead to America’s Irish population asking for compensation for their role as slaves, as the USA already has enough financial problems due to the jewish bankers printing more money to bankrupt the middle class.
All the better to facilitate the carpetbagging of middle class assets as they are currently trying to do with the jewish organized crime leadership in the Ukraine.
The greatest catastrophe to ever hit Africa was independence.
It was caused by communists, essentially jews, like Joe Slovo in South Africa.
Communism, a jewish value system, destroys economies and that facilitates carpetbagging.
Jew boys Nate Rothschild and Peter Monk just took over one of the richest gold fields in the world in Tanzania by expelling 43,000 small scale miners from the land and hiring 8,000 back as laborers.
Try that during the California or Yukon gold rushes and you would get shot.
But in disarmed Africa you only have to get to one politician, the president, on side, by the usual jewish means, to achieve your goal.
During British rule, people in Dar es Salaam did not have to lock their doors. Now the town is all cement fences and steel grated windows. Thieves attack houses in large groups.
Kenya has lost just about all of its wildlife since independence. Margaret Kenyatta, daughter of Jomo Kenyatta, the founder of Kenya, ran the ivory poaching.
I visited Isiro in DR Congo in 2006. Trees are now growing up through the roofs of stately old colonial houses. They still practice cannibalism. I met a cannibal. She cooked tree slugs for me.
I visited South Africa during the apartheid era to do a story about the anti-shark measures board in Durban. I walked all over town alone after midnight and felt perfectly safe.
A good friend from RSA just moved to Canada to keep from getting shot. Another friend was shot dead in Zimbabwe last month.
A family I knew in Zimbabwe had a game ranch near Buffalo Range. Lovely people. They had 60,000 wild animals on their property. Mugabe’s thugs took it over. Nothing lives there now. The wild animals, all the eland, sable, and impala are gone. Just blowing dust now.
First attempt to have slaves in Caribbean was obviously to use the natives on the islands there. But, they as locals were, ipso-facto, more knowledgeable & skillful enough to survive as escapees in the jungle.
Along with Irish, there were English, Welsh, & Scottish, slaves. And, other European captives by Atlantic sea-faring Pirates, & convicts from various European countries establishing colonies in respective islands & parts thereof.
But, in that period, the vast majority were Irish.
Islands such as Cuba, & Jamaica, for some generations of colonization were planted with Irish slaves.
I perceive that “racial” & “religious” & “historical” distrust by the slave-owners against the Irish slaves, & observation that recent import of Black-African slaves were more suitable for routine planting-&-harvesting on the plantations because they incorporated singing into what proved to be very effective, & efficient, working-style.
Their natural gift to withstand hard-sun, prompted the slave-owners to relegate the Irish for the heavy-lifting work of conquering the jungle & making roads & what have you.
A black-as-the-ace-of-Spades young woman from St. Vincent Island told me, “We in the Caribbean say that everyone in Jamaica is Irish.”
Obviously, the slave ethnicities interbred. Given that dark is dominant genetically, the child having darker skin than the white-parent is the result.
And, brown-eyes is the result in most cases.
I perceive that the slave owners would be more partial to accessing white-skin females than blacks. After all, “fair” skin was the height of fashion back-in-the-day, & still is among the rich.*
Successful efforts were harnessed to indoctrinate the children of Irish slaves in North America into the Judaised-religion known as “Protestantism”. So, these Irish ethnics were ripe for integration with their Protestant (Catholic-hating) Scots-Irish ethnic cousins.
Important to qualify with the following facts, that you undoubtedly know, for the other readers’ benefit:
The vast majority of the slave traders to the Americas were Jews.
The vast majority of the slave trade ship captains to and fro the Americas were Jews.
The vast majority of the slave trade ship crews to and fro the Americas were Jews.
The vast majority of the slave trade auctioneers in the Americas were Jews.
The vast majority of the Slave-owners in the Americas were Jews.
*With reference to official statistics, in a post of yours some months ago about the conclusion European ethnic male rapists avoid raping Black females in USA, you posed the question essentially, “Is it that the general European ethnic man consider Black women, in general, as being not attractive ?”
The answer appears to be “Yes”.
Although, they may rate the mode-average Black African women of certain Caribbean Islands, Latin-American countries, and certain African tribes as attractive or very-attractive.
According as the Jews have corrupted particular cultures, the women have become less attractive.
A funny story.
About 40 years ago I dated a jewish girl from a rich family in England. She had a plummy accent and got her PhD from Oxford even though she did not seem that bright. I suppose her father gave Oxford a great deal of money.
She had attended a private school for rich English girls and she was telling me one of the courses they took was called “Drawing Room.”
At “Drawing Room” they learned to deflect attention away from themselves when shaking hands with people in a crowd just like the Queen has always done.
They don’t want to have people asking them embarrassing questions like “Is it true that you own 90% of the real estate in London and are going to raise the rent next week?”
That can lead to fist fights, so to calm troubled waters the rich girls or royals patronize the crowd, take the offense, and feign interest in the people they are shaking hands with.
They will ask how is your dog and what’s his name, or what is your favorite flower, or some other nonsense, and in that way deliberately throw the person off guard and feeling important, even grateful that someone so important is talking to them.
I have seen women faint during such conversations.
The Royals don’t want members of the the crowd to ask why did you turn my uncle Fred into a homeless man last week by raising the rent so high that he now has to sleep under a railway bridge.
Despite losing her cousin to the Provos.
Contrast the Ugly side of Republicanism.
Noting it was Lt Col “Mad Mitch’s” regiments soldiers who saved Bernadette’s life.
Full marks to Tucker, his video was a fitting testament to our former Monarch and her once “Great ” Britain.
I suppose Irish will claim also the navy Micks who dug the canals, constructed the railroads, and for generations have been employed in the physical graft were “slaves,” millions of whom have become naturalized doing very nicely here in old “Blighty”.
Of course, it would have nowt to do with being strong in the arm & weak in the head.
Another interesting post, Ted.
And Princess Gloria won’t attend the Queen’s funeral because she’s a Catholic? Somebody’s getting something really wrong there.
Yet Wikipedia says Gloria and *Hillary* are chummy. Stranger still.
Of course, Wikipedia can’t be trusted any further than you could throw your brick house.

More gossip. Joachim Graf Schoenberg married bar tart Ursula. He was about 40 years her senior and had bad teeth. He was a fall down drunk. They had a lovely daughter. Ursula was a secretary from a poor background and he was her entry into high society.
He allegedly traded her for sexual favors from other women and men at parties. He did not tell me that. Other people did.
She didn’t mind. She was very promiscuous gold digger, and was obsessed with a white hunter named Thomas for whom I worked for a year.
Thomas was a very handsome guy, a good hunter, and a complete crook and she was obsessed with him, but Thomas kept her at arms length because he had married a rich Spanish woman and he had too much to lose.
He considered Ursula to be a pain in the ass. She stalked him but Thomas was not perfect.
I was at the Safari Club convention in Los Vegas one year and the FBI was looking for Thomas.
He had been working for a Spanish company and was taking safari deposits by cheque. He then rubbed out the company name on the cheques and inserted his own name.
The outfitter he worked for, whose name was Felix, did not like this and turned the law on Thomas. I have no idea what has happened to him.
Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday extended his condolences to Britain for the “irreparable loss” of Queen Elizabeth, who died earlier in the day aged 96,
In a message to Charles, Britain’s new king, Putin said the Queen “rightfully enjoyed the love and respect of her subjects, as well as authority on the world stage”.
He added: “I wish you courage and resilience in the face of this difficult, irreparable loss. May I ask you to pass on sincere condolences and support to members of the royal family and the entire people of Great Britain.”
God Bless Vladimir Putin & the Russian Federation.
That story is more than just being funny, it is a vital piece of information to know & use against 2-faced politicians & other Janus-faced politicos.
Queen Elizabeth’s cousin to whom you refer to was Earl Louis Mountbatten of Burma & who was also among a great many other prestigious titles & roles Admiral of the British Fleet, & Vice-Roy (actually the last such) of India.
He was the maternal uncle of Prince Philip (deceased) who was the husband of Queen Elizabeth II. Thus, he was grand-uncle of the now King Charles III. Moreover, Mountbatten & Charles had a very close familial bond.
Mountbatten was married to the granddaughter, & indeed the principal heir, of the Jew Bankster Cassel.
Both were extremely promiscuous bisexuals.
And, it is held by what I consider reliable sources that both as a couple repeatedly liaised illicitly together with Nehru (another bisexual) during the negotiations for the independence of India which involved also the formation of a new country Pakistan.
Such can be state craft.
Is Kill-ary Clinton out of her league? A has been?
Mountbatten was also allegedly a very active homosexual pedophile — Lord Dicky — known as such to the intelligence services of UK, & USA, & Irish State, & Provisional IRA (PIRA).
He was reportedly assassinated by UK’s own MI5 with MI6, & I hear also the Royal Family (probably Prince Philip), & CIA, & obviously the Irish Police.
They had major motivations, including Mountbatten allegedly interfering in their alleged joined-up Heroin trade.
Mountbatten had the ear of a once increasingly outspoken Prince Charles to urge UK expel placement of USA Nuke Missiles in Britain. Mountbatten was actually for a united Ireland.
Together, they would be happy to allow the PIRA to take credit for the job, although, according to my sources, the PIRA did not assassinate him.
All that I inform to you has been reported by very reliable sources in the public domain.
Given his supposed deep formation in Charles’s upbringing, it is fair to state that Mountbatten remains the most influential figure in King Charles life.
Here despite it from a dubious wiki for many a category is Wik-ed-pedia article on a man described by Irish State Peelers as “a most charming man”, … Mountbatten (Lord Dicky):
I hope to craft useful replies towards the other points you made later.
I looked at Wikipedia and the story bears no resemblance to the Joachim Graf Schoenberg and the bar tart Ursula that I knew personally.
Joe was broke a far as I knew, as are many European royals, and Gloria Furst Turn and taxis had all the money according to Joe.
But maybe it was B.S. However, I did not get the impression that Joe was rich. He was obsessed with sex and carried cheap paperpack sex books in his knapsack, so whenever we stopped for a rest he read sex stories.
Wikipedia seems to be a jewish institution devoted to the re-write of history.
“Mountbatten and his wife were both extremely promiscuous bisexuals.
And, it is held by what I consider reliable sources that both as a couple repeatedly liaised illicitly together with Nehru (another bisexual) during the negotiations for the independence of India which involved also the formation of a new country Pakistan.”
These are well-documented facts and would be common knowledge to the literate UK. Though what has this to do with the price of fish?
Any future “crafting” you may choose to pen, kindly stick to known factuals. This site’s creator has built RJN’s reputation on “facts.” “Facts ma’am, just the facts”.
Count Dracula’s Progeny Are Now On The Side Of The Pure Bloods!
“The owner of Romania’s most famous football team announced that he will ban vaccinated players from the team.
Mr. Gigi Becali, owner of Steaua Bucharest, is looking to recruit mentally tough, unvaccinated players. This includes unvaccinated or partially vaccinated players who faked their vaccination status a year ago, because they were under duress and faced certain exclusion for not participating in the dastardly covid-19 vaccine experiment.”
Revolutions always start with a few dedicated patriots. SADS or Sudden Adult (Arrhythmic) Death Syndrome, plus the cold and hungry Europeans taking it up the bum for Zelensky this winter, just might be the catalyst that starts the dominoes falling. It’s got to start somewhere!
I know a guy from the British Army who was once asked to join a grpup called Recon 14. He refused. He is a Catholic.
He said Recon 14, and not MI5 or MI6, does assassinations for Britain.
Apparently Tony Blair used them in Ireland quite a bit, even getting a 16-year old kid to court an Irish girl whom he claimed to her that he wanted to marry her. He killed her, his wife to be, on orders from Recon 14 when he was in his early 20s.
The world is a strange place.
Most peculiar, Momma.

“3 Lies Of Secular Culture” @
I use Wikipedia often, Ted.
But on certain topics they must be taken with a shaker of salt: anything to do with religion, particularly Christianity, politics, jews, or anything important to jewry at a given moment, or anyone they don’t like at any given moment; e.g. Putin, Russia, William Cooper….
Or things jews want to mislead people about: Coronavirus, Russian collusion, 911, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc……….
Are all suspect.
I just blogged on them, and their anti-Christian bent. And how to push back.
It’s not all a pack of lies there but….
Ted, just looked up the Wikipedia article on Recon 14. Nasty characters from the sound of it. But Wikipedia speaks of them in the past tense.
Is that false? They’re still out there?
My son met up with some British Special Services guys in Afghanistan. The Taliban were giving them trouble, but as one of them said, “I’ll take them any day over the IRA.”
Jews are so generous, they are bringing us something.
This ’something’ they bring us is nothing.
But it’s a lot of nothing, so that’s what makes it something.
And that’s why they are so generous.
Who could ask for more?
I know Tony Blair used Recon 14 a lot, but I don’t know if they still exist.
You never hear about the guys who do the dirty work. Many years ago there was a crises in Quebec. Some separatists killed a politician named Pierre Laporte, and I know the U.S. army moved 26,000 soldiers to New York state to take over Quebec if there was a communist revolution in the province. This was never reported anywhere.
Apparently there were about 160 really hard core communist separatists ready to take up arms and kill people. They suddenly all disappeared and have never been heard from again. Ask the authorities and they say, “Oh they went to Cuba.”
The story I heard is that they were removed from this life by a RCAF specialist group based in Winnipeg. They were loaded on aircraft, flown a few hundred miles out into the Atlantic and dropped off.
I have no idea if this is true or just idle gossip, but I know the group, if it ever existed, has never been identified.
The James Bond films about the British super spy were made by a Canadian jew. I once worked in an office and the lady at the next desk was Roberta Maxwell who was the first Moneypenny in the Bond films.
Anyhow I think they were made to make the Brits feel good about their spy service as they were completely infiltrated by the Soviets during the Cold War. The head of British intelligence was Kim Philby, a Soviet spy. The Queen’s cousin, last name Blunt, was a Soviet spy. The USSR owned England during the Cold War.
I suspect Canadian Prime Minister Lester B Pearson, the man who shoehorned Pierre Trudeau, father of Justin Trudeau, into power was also a commie because he attended Oxford University at the same time it produced all of Britain’s commie spies. Jane Goodall’s husband, Derek Bryceson, was also a commie spy from that same era.
Same kind of turd polishing went on with Texan Audie Murphy. He was awarded more medals than any other American soldier to make Texans feel good about themselves.
The most humiliating defeat in WW2 was a whole US army from Texas, numbering thousands of men, that was defeated in Italy by 15 German machine gunners.
It was so humiliating to America that Eisenhower disbanded the whole army, and then the public relations turd polishing began by showering Audie Murphy from Texas with a lot of medals. I think Murphy knew it. He drank himself to death.
The University that produced all of Britain’s commie spies was Cambridge, not Oxford.
Biden was doing psycho-babbling to protect the Communists, who are operating in the Republican Party.
MAGA Republicans mean the real and pure Republicans, who have no tie with Communism (Jewish absolute monarchy).
Time to treat the Communists (almost all of the Democrats and some Republicans are the Communists) as if they are the paid/bribed criminal members of the Jewish absolute monarchy, which continues to thrive, thanking to many Karl Marx-invented central banks in different countries.
Maybe we should give this hidden global government a name. It should be the Kingdom of Rothschild Family.
Karl Marx, who was connected to the Rothschild family tree, set up a trap for the gentiles by introducing the Communist Manifesto, which persuaded and encouraged the gentiles to leave the gentile-driven monarchies to join a Rothschild party disguised as a Communist party.
The Communist Party may sounded good, but its true intention is to serve as a trap for gentiles only. Karl Marx was a Jew, wasn’t he? He spent many years writing to keep exclusively seducing the gentiles into joining the Communist (actually Rothschild) Party.
The Kingdom of Rothschild Family (also known as Communism) in the 21st century AD and the Kingdom of Israel in the 10th century BC are similar, because they are both the absolute monarchies.
Only difference between them is that the Kingdom of Rothschild Family, empowered by the unapproved and mysterious central banks, is currently ruling over millions or perhaps billion(s) of gentiles, while the Kingdom of Israel ruled over Jews only.
Maybe we should divide the Republican Party into two parties. One is called the Communism/Rothschild-driven “Republican Party”. Another one is called the “MAGA Republican Party” (real and genuine Republican Party, free of the Communism/Rothschild-driven Republican Party).

Well, no wonder they executed him.
Perusing the above Rothschild post, came across the secret little-known fact regarding Leo Amery formulating the text of the Balfour trade-off Declaration. The man who played a decisive role in the Zionist Grand Scheme.
He was none other than the father of John Amery.
I can remember his younger brother Julian who was a prominent Tory MP & minister.
San Diego high school teacher defines fascist as white people:
Your first impulse might be anger or look up the word fascist. This is one example of many words being changed to fit Jewish agenda. But this should clarify that Biden’s army of antifa is really anti-white.
Some might recall that if you entered antifa.com into your browser it was redirected to the Biden campaign. But, he is really just a front man for the anti-white Jewish agenda. They couldn’t just come out and say anti-white at the start so they used fascist instead. Many wondered why Democrats were calling average people fascist or nazi.
Many of the antifas were college students in debt thinking they would share in a future power hierarchy. But, they will be betrayed. They are only useful for making chaos. And not useful to the people who want freedom. They are lost.
Wokepedia… give us today our daily fib:
We have to start pushing back against the lefty loons. Many of whom get their ideas from Wikipedia.
Does anyone know someone at 4Chan/pol/ - that we can enlist to dox that teacher in San Diego who said White people are fascists… racists… blah, blah?
God bless Brother Nathanael and his ministry of exposing the synagogue of Satan. Rev 2,3:9
Biden was not elected President of the United States. There is plenty of evidence that the elections were fraudulent, stolen because Trump was not a globalist and he put America first.
The Christ killers and destroyers of Christian civilization were kicked out of 109 countries before coming to America. Yet they are still up to the same old tricks only this time they control public perception through Hollywood, media, entertainment, Big Pharma.
Yes, they cry antisemitism while they murder millions of innocent children and sodomize your children. Tel Aviv and NYC are the Ashkenazi capitals of the world and also the sodomite capitals of the world.
They won’t be happy until everyone embraces sodomy, seen through their lavish parades and their never-ending media and Hollywood propaganda. They cry antisemtism while they render millions of Americans homeless by buying up properties and raising the rent (eg Black Rock).
They cry antisemtism while they poison the food supply and get millions addicted to opioids (eg Sackler family). They espouse communism for the ignorant masses yet get rich off capitalism then hog all the worlds wealth (practice what you preach). Karl Marx was a Talmudic rabbi.
Henry Ford, a great American patriot, knew these people started both world wars for profit. On Sept 11 2001 Israel launched the 9/11 attacks on America (bollyn.com); yet they want everyone to think they are victims through their never ending media chants of antisemitism.
Martin Luther, the founder of Protestantism, felt sorry for how the Catholic Church treated them so he tried to reach out to them and show them God’s grace. Subsequently, they tried to murder him which led Martin Luther to write a treatise titled “The Jews and Their Lies.”
Well, today, it’s the same old tricks by the same old tricksters.

Oh, So Here’s the ‘White Supremacist’ Accused of Vandalizing a Gay Pride Crosswalk With Swastikas
Townhall | 9 September 2022
A black male suspect has been identified as the repeat vandalism suspect accused of defacing the Rainbow Crosswalk in Atlanta, Georgia, last month with swastikas after leftists online blamed white supremacy for the spray paint across the LGBTQ street art, a cultural landmark known as the city’s emblem of gay pride.
30-year-old Jonah Jade Sampson is charged with criminal trespass, felony interference with government property, and three counts of second-degree criminal damage to property for allegedly vandalizing the rainbow stripes painted at the intersection of 10th St and Piedmont Ave in mid-town Atlanta on two separate occasions.

At the opposite end of the spectrum. None of his guests who excel at extreme sports such as marathon runners have been jews. This reflects the huge toll that inbreeding takes.
Lesson learned. You can’t bonk your daughters, sisters, mothers and pre-menopausal grandmothers for 2,000 years and come out unscathed.

@No More Wars for the Jews
Jewry aims to be always at least 1 step ahead of societal state-of-the-art knowledge, & applications of it, in matters of particular value to Jewry.
They have been noting that truth-seeking + truth-telling about Jewry, & their Goyim collaborators, by scholarly “Jews”, & “former-Jews”, & “Goyim” (not least by some notable African-Americans & African-Caribbeans, e.g. Nation of Islam, & Prof. Tony Martin), has increasingly becoming more powerful since the early 20th century.
Some of the truth became known from:
1) Fortuitous loss of Jewry documents; especially “The Protocols of Zion”, which is a work of a genius or of a team of geniuses, and the greatest business plan ever written thus far. Although evil in intent, it does have a great understanding on how masses of people generally think, & act, in the scenarios they refer to.
2) Disclosure of the anti-Jesus-the-Christ & anti-Christian & anti-Moslem & otherwise anti-Goyim, tracts including the pedophile & bestiality tracts, from the Talmud (the actual “guide-book” which the Jews really mean when the deceptively refer to the “Torah” for our gullible ears, & then most of the Goyim, & naive Judaics, listeners thinking that they were referring to Old Testament of Bible).
3) Revelations by Jew defectors e.g. Professor Ariel Toaff, scholar & son of former Chief Rabbi of Rome, published a book confirming that Jews, obviously not all Jews, through history, following the birth of the new religion Judaism circa 350 AD & into the now, have been truly guilty of murdering Goyim children for purposes of fulfilling the occult which their religion is & their hatred of Christians, & thus that accusation was never “Blood-Libel”.
Anyway, Jewry being ahead of the Goyim inserted Alex Jones to serve as:
-disinformation operative (ditto Jordan Peterson)
-timewaster (ditto Jordan Peterson)
-strawman in that he is a misinformation agent for what the ordinary people would then consider is the typical truther.
Incessant Jewish whinging and carping is just so stomach turning. - Kj
Over 120 Countries, but Never Israel: Queen Elizabeth’s Unofficial Boycott
If Americans Knew
September 10, 2022
In her 70-year reign, Queen Elizabeth crisscrossed the globe, but purposely skipped Israel. In 1984, speaking with Queen Noor during a visit to Jordan, she found the settlements ‘depressing’ and the Air Force’s planes over the West Bank ‘frightening’… For decades, the British royal family had boycotted Israel. It wasn’t an official boycott, but it was often unofficially acknowledged by officials…
By Ofer Aderet, reposted from Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz
In 1986, Margaret Thatcher became the first British leader to visit Israel.
Journalist David Landau, later Haaretz editor-in-chief, dared to ask her when the queen would visit. “But I’m here,” the Iron Lady replied. In 2014, not long before he passed, Landau was awarded the OBE for his contributions to Israeli-British relations. He did not ask the queen directly why she refrained from visiting here.
“When there is sustainable peace,” was the answer stammered by official British representatives whenever they were asked why the Queen is boycotting the State of Israel.
This, of course, didn’t stop the queen from visiting Arab countries. She did not reverse this boycott throughout her 70 years on the throne, despite being the best-traveled world leader, with over 120 countries visited and around a million miles traversed in her tours.
“Is there another member state of the UN which the British royal family treats with such consistent and studied contempt?” Landau wondered.
Cognoscenti would explain that it is the British Foreign Service that decides such things, and that it is doing so out of supposed spite.
This, among other reasons, as “revenge” for the violent Israeli resistance to the British mandate, and having established a state on its ruins. [Among Zionists’ violent resistance was assassinating British officials such as Loyd Moyne.] Others said that the British are afraid to antagonize the Arab world, and that is why the Queen won’t show her face here.
But had she truly wanted to, the Queen could have popped over for a visit. “The sad but inescapable conclusion, therefore, is that she herself is part of this nasty, petty British intrigue to deny Israel that rankling vestige of legitimation that is in their power to bestow or withhold – a royal visit.,” Landau wrote in Haaretz over a decade ago, in an article where he called upon the monarch to “bin these sour-smelling inhibitions and end this boycott.”
Some British royals visited Israel over the years, but Buckingham Palace always went out of its way to make it clear that the visit is neither royal, nor official.
Thus it was in 1994, when Prince Phillip came to receive the Righteous Among the Nations award on behalf of his mother, who is buried in Jerusalem. In 1995 Charles, then Prince of Wales, came to attend Rabin’s funeral. A change came only in the 70th anniversary of Israel’s independence, in 2018, when Prince William arrived for a visit, that was termed as official, even if it was meaningless.
Two years later his father Charles, soon to be crowned king, visited here for the international Holocaust forum, held to mark 75 years since the liberation of Auschwitz. The Queen, however, maintained her boycott.
Not all Israelis wanted such a visit, either way. “Elizabeth II is the daughter of George VI, the king on whose behalf Jewish freedom fighters were hanged in the Land of Israel; The king whose navy blocked the way of refugees to the Land of Israel, leading to their death. The hangman’s daughter is not welcome in Israel,” a commenter wrote on Haaretz’s website. [For the real situation see this. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00J0LXYLM ]
Others mentioned the dark episodes in her family’s past, mainly her uncle, Edward VIII, the family’s black sheep, whose list of sins also includes Nazi sympathies.
In 2015, British tabloid The Sun published a family film from 1933 showing the seven-year-old Princess Lilybeth saluting in the Nazi fashion alongside her mother, sister, and uncle. The Palace expressed disappointment at the dissemination of the old footage, but declined to explain the background to it. [See this. https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2015/jul/20/queens-nazi-salute-a-sign-of-ignorance-shared-by-many-in-scary-times ]
The Queen’s fans, on the other hand, are quick to point out in her “favor” that a Jewish mohel circumcised her son Charles, in the best tradition of the royal family, deriving from a claim to Davidic descent. [This is Jewish myth based on a kernel of truth and a lot of factoids. - Kj]
The closest [Queen Elizabeth] came to visiting here was in 1984, when she toured Jordan. The visit provided a few quotes seen as hostile to Israel. Among other things, it was reported that Her Highness was disturbed when Israeli jets passed overhead as she looked at the West Bank from across the river.
“How frightening,” she muttered then. King Hussein’s wife, Queen Nour, replied: “It’s terrible.” Later on, upon being shown a map of the West Bank with the settlements marked on it, she said: “What a depressing map.”
Calling Liz Truss a demoness, dear KathJuliane, is of course a great observation, and possible even true?, as most of the top politicians in Westminster are horrible people.
I do, however, wonder if you consider the late Queen to be some sort of saint? Was she different to the others?
You see, I have little respect for the English Royals. After all they have been involved in many scandals over the years, usually it was Elizabeth’s sons who disgraced themselves, but also to some extent Harry after he married that American gold-digger.
Going back to Liz Truss, like you, I find it very strange that the Queen should die only a couple of days after the new PM visited her at Balmoral. I had always thought that she would live to 110, or longer.
How 9/11 caused Queen Elizabeth to break a 600-year-old royal tradition
Posted On September 07, 2022
The terror attacks on September 11, 2001, shook the free world. Americans at home, abroad and our allies mourned the tragic loss of life that day. For American expats in the United Kingdom, London became the focal point of their grief.
On September 12, Queen Elizabeth II made a request that broke a 600-year-old royal tradition. For centuries, the Bands of the Household Division played music during the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace and all the other Royal Palaces and Castles. The music played during the ceremony has always been a mix of traditional British songs and popular music of the day. However, foreign national anthems are played for state visits in honor of foreign dignitaries. In an unprecedented show of solidarity, the Queen requested the playing of “The Star-Spangled Banner.”
On September 13, an estimated 5,000 people gathered outside of Buckingham Palace, many of them Americans. The Coldstream Guards, the oldest continuously serving regular regiment in the British Army, conducted the Changing of the Guard. During the ceremony, the Band of the Coldstream Guards played “The Star-Spangled Banner.” Some of the crowd sang along while the American ambassador to Britain, William Farish, stood with his hand over his heart next to Prince Andrew. Many in the crowd waved American flags with tears in their eyes.
The conclusion of the song was met with resounding applause. A two-minute silence was observed before Prince Andrew led the troops in a formal salute. The band then played a selection of somber American music including “Hymn to the Fallen” by John Williams, the song from the final credits of Saving Private Ryan.
Any irony of the British Household Band playing not only a foreign national anthem outside of a state visit, but a song whose lyrics highlight American perseverance over the British during the War of 1812, was completely overshadowed by the friendship and support shown between the two nations.
The next day, a memorial service for 9/11 victims was held at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London, again at the request of the Queen. Over 2,600 people filled the cathedral including the Queen, the Prince of Wales, Prime Minister Tony Blair, former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and Ambassador Farish. At the opening of the service, “The Star-Spangled Banner” was played with the Queen singing along. In addition to the American national anthem, “Battle Hymn of the Republic” was also sung toward the end of the service.
The incredible show of support by the British people in the wake of 9/11 carried into the War on Terror. To this day, British troops stand steadfast alongside Americans to combat those who would do harm to either country or their allies.
9/11 anniversary: U.S. anthem at UK’s Royal Castle - September 11, 2021
The Coldstream Guards band played the U.S. national anthem outside Windsor Castle to mark the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.
Phil the Greek, the Queen’s husband, like John Profumo, was rumored to have taken up with hookers Kristeen Keeler and many Rice Davies, both of whom died in Israel.
The Queen behaved with great dignity given the fact that her husband and her son Randy Andy were both philanderers.

Jews just can’t help themselves.
The Jew, as Jew, out of an insatiable pride, just has to insert himself into every historical event of any importance in the Gentile world, narrowing the focus on him and his incessant suffering and victimization, as well as conveying the “mysterious” essence of being a Jew.
What should be a commemoration of the primary story of how the NYPD chaplains responded to the Trade Towers Disaster to help in rescue operations and offer emotional, moral and spiritual support to survivors, both in emergency services — Police, Fire, EMS — and the civilians, winds up being yet just another boasting exercise in Yiddishkeit, and his fellow chaplains used at props for his own starring performance.
“Oy, veh! I, the Jewish rabbi police chaplain being everywhere at once, held everything together! Look at meeeee!”
To his credit, at least he didn’t bring up the $hoah and the 6 bazillion “Jews who died in the gas chambers at Auschwitz”.
I was the NYPD’s only Jewish chaplain at ground zero. Here’s what I learned on 9/11
The NYPD’s only Jewish chaplain recalls the sights and sounds of 9/11
The Forward | 9 September, 2022
By Alvin Kass
Chief Chaplain of NYPD
September 09, 2021
Rabbi Alvin Kass is the current head of the NYPD chaplains and is also the longest-serving chaplain, having worked under 7 mayors and 16 police commissioners.
Rabbi Kass was on duty the day of Sept. 11th, 2001. Twenty years later, the Forward spoke to Rabbi Kass about his impressions of that tragic day, how his fellow NYPD chaplains and officers responded, and the spiritual lesson that can be learned from overwhelming devastation.
As told to Nora Berman; edited for length and clarity
A few minutes after the second plane hit the World Trade Center, I prepared to head to ground zero.
I have served as an NYPD chaplain since 1966, and am the only Jewish chaplain. There are twelve of us total, and on 9/11, we all merged our efforts to try and get through it. Our religious beliefs differed, but that day I realized that faith in the face of adversity is a primary value.
As the NYPD car attempted to take me to a temporary headquarters set up on Vesey Street, we quickly realized that the location had been changed, as the perimeter of destruction kept expanding rapidly.
We ended up at Stuyvesant High School, about a mile from the World Trade Center, and it was quite a scene. Exhausted police officers and firefighters lay in aisles of the auditorium trying to get a few moments of rest before heading back into the devastation. Nearby merchants donated sandwiches and beverages. Stuyvesant High is right on the Hudson River, and tons of boats were ferrying injured people to hospitals in New Jersey.
I headed to St Vincent’s Hospital to check in on injured police officers. When I arrived, I encountered probably the largest officer I had ever seen. Police officers generally have rather impressive physiques, but this guy was more ripped than anyone I’d ever seen before.
He was crying like a baby.
We sat down together, and I told him that I also felt like crying, because this was a terrible, horrible thing that had just happened. I also told him that, as police officers, we’ve got to do our best to keep our own personal impulses under control in order to be able to help other people through it.
After he calmed down, he told me that he had been a member of the last class to graduate into the force just weeks before. Imagine starting a new job and being confronted by an epic event of this nature — it was absolutely overwhelming, a baptism by fire.
Next, I went to an NYU Hospital. As I pulled in front of the emergency room, I saw an amazing sight: countless nurses, laboratory assistants, doctors, and other medical employees stood next to an endless line of gurneys, ready to assist the onslaught of people who they thought were going to be brought in.
Sadly, it turned out that there weren’t that many to help, because not many people were rescued from the unimaginable destruction.
Following 9/11, the auditorium of the NYPD Headquarters at One Police Plaza was converted into a hotel for the 23 families whose police officer relatives had not been accounted for. Everything in the headquarters was made available to them: showers, food, whatever was needed. None of the officers had survived, but we didn’t know that at the time.
We police chaplains circulated among these various families, trying to bring them a measure of strength and comfort and hope. Every half-hour or so, the top echelons of the police department — including the police commissioner — came down and reported the latest news, which all too often was no news at all. The hotel in the auditorium and the briefings went on for several months; we didn’t extinguish hope.
In the coming weeks, I attended every funeral of every police officer who perished in the 9/11 attacks. I generally made it a point to attend all police officers’ funerals who were killed in line of duty, but I felt that it was a moral obligation and especially important in response to 9/11.
I also conducted two funerals for Jewish officers. I told their families that you’re supposed to say Baruch atah Adonai, eloheinu melech ha’olam, dayan ha emet: Blessed is the Lord our God, ruler of the universe, who is a judge of truth, or truthful judge.
This means, essentially, that He knows what He’s doing. We don’t.
We can’t comprehend what He’s doing very often, but presumably He knows what he is doing, and we submit. We bow our head to what is often inscrutable and incomprehensible, and we accept it with a measure of faith and hope.
That really is the essential message of Judaism, in the face of evil. There is a moral law, an objective law that guides the physical phenomena of the universe — it’s a lawful process that governs moral affairs even if we don’t understand it. We have to accept that degree of incomprehensibility and accept in faith what we can’t comprehend.
A couple of days after 9/11, I got a call from an FBI chaplain — I’m also the Jewish chaplain of the New York office of the FBI — named Rob Dewey. He said that he was part of a federal emergency response team working at LaGuardia Airport to identify victims whose bodies had been recovered from ground zero. This was a huge scientific enterprise, involving psychologists, business people, funeral directors, forensic specialists, medical doctors and chaplains.
The 9/11 attack occurred on a Tuesday, and Rosh Hashanah began the following Monday evening. Dewey told me that there were a lot of Jewish people on this response team, and that they would like to have a religious service for the new year. He asked if I would be able to conduct it.
At the time, I was the pulpit rabbi of the East Midwood Jewish Center in Brooklyn. I told Rob that I already had to conduct evening and morning services for my own congregants, but that I could come out to LGA in between services in the afternoon.
On Rosh Hashanah, I arrived at a hotel by LGA airport with my cantor and a shofar, and there I conducted a Rosh Hashanah service. I have to tell you, that in my entire career, it was the most meaningful Rosh Hashanah service that I have ever been involved in.
During that service, we were in the midst of one of the most horrendous events that human beings had ever encountered, certainly the worst attack on American soil we had ever experienced. It was world shaking, unprecedented, and all of us were filled with question marks.
We recited the traditional prayers, asking “Who will live? Who will die? Who by the sword? Who by plague?” Rosh Hashanah is a time of uncertainty, a time when we think about what our fate is going to be in the new year, and here we were confronting this situation when so many had perished.
This group of people that responded, the emergency team that was now praying with me, instead of being preoccupied with anxiety, they came to help. They worked together. It was beautiful meeting them, and praying with them, and trying to find faith with them.
When the cantor blows the shofar, it is always an eerie sound. But that day it particularly had a mystical effect upon all of us that no other shofar blowing ever had. It will always be one of the most important religious experiences of my life.
Oh, no! They’re letting the (p)Resident out of the White House Assisted Living Facility for Queen Elizabeth’s funeral.
What will Joe Stolen do or say then?
For heaven’s sake, keep him away from the kids.
White House confirms Biden will attend Queen Elizabeth’s funeral with wife Jill
President Biden has formally accepted his invitation to attend Queen Elizabeth II’s state funeral next week, the White House said Sunday.
The president will travel to England with First Lady Jill Biden for the Sept. 19 service at London’s Westminster Abbey.
Biden had said Friday he planned on attending the funeral for the 96-year-old monarch, who died Thursday at her Balmoral estate in Scotland.
“I don’t know what the details are yet but I’ll be going,” he told reporters before boarding Air Force One.
The president also said that he had not yet spoken to King Charles III, who gained the throne upon the death of his mother.
“I know him, I haven’t spoken to him, I did not call him yet,” he said.
The late queen’s funeral is expected to be attended by scores of world leaders.
Russia’s Vladimir Putin, however, will not be in attendance, according to Sky News. A Kremlin spokesperson said Putin sent the new king a note expressing his condolence.
French President Emmanuel Macron is expected to attend, according to Sky News, as is Japan’s Emperor Naruhito.

His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia expresses condolences on the passing of Queen Elizabeth II.
To His Majesty King Charles III
It is with sadness that I received the news of the passing of your mother, Queen Elizabeth II. I express my sincere condolences to you and to all the subjects of the British Crown, mourning the loss that has befallen them.
The reign of your late mother was the longest in the history of the United Kingdom. It was an era of dynamic development of state, economic, social and other spheres of the country’s life.
Throughout all this time, Her Majesty has remained a symbol of the stability, continuity and sustainability of centuries-old historical traditions, not only for her own nation, but for the entire continent of Europe.
She was treated with great respect by political leaders and heads of the world powers. I recall with great warmth her visit to Russia in 1994, which left me with the highest impressions.
I had the opportunity to get to know the late Queen personally when I met her during my visit to the United Kingdom. I can testify that she was a very open and warm person, sensitive to her interlocutor, a model of deep intellect and the highest culture.
May our merciful Lord and God Jesus Christ receive with love the soul of the deceased Queen Elizabeth, console all those saddened by her passing, strengthen you and grant you His help in your upcoming royal service.
With sincere condolences,
+KIRILL, PATRIARCH OF MOSCOW AND ALL RUSSIA
@ Ted Gorsline
Thanks for your reply to my comment.
I also have to tell you how much I enjoyed your stories/anecdotes. They are either very funny or very interesting or both at the same time.
Called Uju Anya’s number and left her a thoughtful message, Rebbe.
I never knew the Queen and as far as I know she never did anything for me but I’m still going to miss her.
She was queen when I was born, when I started kindergarten, when I graduated from school, when I joined the Navy, when I was discharged from the Navy, when I started college, when I graduated from college, when I got married, when my son was born, when my parents died, when my granddaughter was born….
She was always in my world. The triumphs and the disasters. Not my immediate world of course. But she was still out there… somewhere. Ever smiling, dignified, gracious and tough.
She must have been very tough to pull it off. And for as long as she did.
So, I’m saddened at her death. The World, which is a pretty sad place as things stand, got sadder still, because someone who held such long tenure, in my mind and memory at least, has struck the tent.
May God grant her a happy eternity.
Speaking of the demoness “Carnegie Mellon schvartza Uju Anya”…
Social Justice Ideology and the End of Civility
The Fiamengo File | 11 September 2022
Expressing hatred for Queen Elizabeth II is, according to academics and activists, a laudable act of postcolonial resistance
The recent outpouring of rancor and bilious accusation at the death of Queen Elizabeth II has, right on cue, brought out the predictable justifications for incivility in the name of social justice: “It’s okay when WE do it; if you criticize us, YOU’RE an oppressor too.”
Last Thursday, a Nigerian-born university professor at Carnegie Mellon tweeted her hope that Queen Elizabeth’s pain on her deathbed would be “excruciating,” excusing her crudity by referring to the Queen as the “chief monarch [sic] of a thieving, raping, and genocidal empire.”
Professor Uju Anya is not a historian—she has a PhD in the academically unserious discipline of second-language theory—and it is highly unlikely that she could go toe-to-toe with any genuine historian on the facts of the British empire’s alleged atrocities.
But such throw-away denunciations (not of the Mongol Empire, of course, or the Ottoman, only the British) are common currency on Twitter, and indeed in most university classrooms today.
Nobody would have cared if Anya had denounced the British Empire; what raised eyebrows was the gratuitous nastiness of her wish for the Queen to die an agonizing death.
When her tweet provoked criticism (and was ultimately deleted by Twitter), Anya played up her victim credentials as a suffering colonial, alleging that the Queen had “supervised a government that sponsored the genocide that massacred and displaced half my family” (in reference to Britain’s alleged role in supplying arms to the Nigerian government during the country’s three-year civil war in the late 1960s) and engaged in oft-obscene exchanges with her detractors.
She told NBC News in interview that “I take deep offense at the notion that the oppressed and survivors of violence have to somehow be deferential or respectful when their oppressors die.”
No one ever said that Anya had to be deferential.
But a reasonable person might have expected Anya to be somewhat constrained in her vindictiveness by the fact that Nigerians themselves, both during the civil war and generally in the more than 60 years since the country was granted independence, have done a good job of massacring, displacing, and reducing the life possibilities of Nigerians.
As a result, there has been a mass exodus from Nigeria by individuals like Anya, many of whom have fled to Great Britain as well as to other English-speaking countries where they have been able to live in security and plenty unimaginable to the vast majority of their former countrymen. If the English-speaking empire is so evil, why choose to continue living in it?
More to the point, a thinking person might have hoped that as a teacher at a prestigious American university, Anya would have been embarrassed to trumpet to the taxpaying public such useless incivility, which will not, despite its approval by some journalists for “staking out a position on politics and history,” bring justice or improve life by one jot for any Nigerian or oppressed person, and will merely telegraph to hundreds of actual or potential students her striking crudeness of thought and abysmal lack of self- control.
But that would be expecting too much of the professor, whose teaching specialization focuses on (you guessed it) “race, gender, sexual, and social class identities in new language learning.” What that means, judging from Professor Anya’s book, articles, and videos, is that she has made a comfortable career for herself by being a black woman from Nigeria, teaching at a university that allows her to vent spleen in the guise of social engagement, and for which she is paid a high salary to defend stupid tweets that cost her nothing.
Moreover, no one is preventing criticism of the dead or the living. No one is suggesting that a postcolonial critic cannot make arguments about the alleged harm done by the British empire.
Anya is perfectly free, if she is capable (which I doubt), of analyzing the perfidy of the British in Nigeria’s past or critically evaluating Queen Elizabeth’s role in Nigerian decolonization. The objection is specifically to the juvenile rebarbativeness of Anya’s expressed hatred.
But such rudeness itself, according to our university-trained and approved cultural influencers, is more than acceptable. “Rosie” tweeted that “To understand why people are reacting to the queen’s death in a way that seems [sic] ugly and violent, it might help to pick up a copy of @monaeltahawy’s necessary sins for women and girls.”
Mona Eltahawy, an Egyptian-American radical feminist who supports violence against men and boys in order to “defeat patriarchy” alleged that rudeness is a political strategy by which formerly colonized and oppressed peoples resist the “white, Christian values” that have allegedly been violently imposed in order to pacify them.
Practicing “radical rudeness,” according to the notoriously vulgar-mouthed (and celebrated) Eltahawy is a liberatory strategy of anti-imperialism. Pursuing the same theme, Valeska Griswold tweeted that “The notion of radical rudeness is an excellent framework to analyze the complaints of alt-right movements against POC and ‘the libs.’ It helps to have a name for the things that form organically in subaltern and oppressed communities to deal with their marginalization.”
Such puerile theorizing has a long and depressing history in academic thought, but anyone interested in a concise statement of one of its points of origin should read political theorist Herbert Marcuse’s 1965 essay Repressive Tolerance.

Today’s Veterans Today has the best available information on how the Israel, the jewish state, the jews, declared total war on America on 9/11.
Remember that when this happened, none of the American generals, the same ones you see on CNN taking the jewish money, obeyed their oath of office by defending America against all enemies foreign and domestic.
Only Dr Alan Sabrosky and VT have explained what happened.
This was the second time America’s whore generals ignored the obvious. The first time was after the attack on the USS Liberty.
No American military response ever. Nothing.
Instead the American generals attacked Israel’s enemy - Iraq to help make Israel great again.
A military general staff’s finest whoring moment ever.
Even Scott Ritter, who was one of the first to realize and report that Iraq had no weapons of mass destruction won’t use the jew word. And he was in Iraq intercepting SCUD missiles to help make Israel great again.
Like someone famous once said. If you want to know who your masters are, they are the ones that no one will name.
They are called jew boys.
Here are your unnamed masters Scott -
The jewish owned Federal reserve bank that prints the money out of thin air to pay for the war causing inflation and putting the average American into debt which facilitates carpet bagging by the same banks;
the world’s other central banks just about all, if not all of which are owne by jews;
financier George Soros (jew), Nazi financier Koloimosksy (jew now hiding in Israel), Maidan slaughter organizer Victorian Nudelman (jew), Her pick for Ukrainian president - Yatsenuk (Jew>), Biden’s favorite for Ukranian president - Pornoshenko (jew), President of Ukraine - Zalensky (jew), Zalensky’s cabinet - (all jews).
ÙS Ukraine supporter Anthony Blinken (jew), MSM Media support for the Ukraine war - New York Times (jewish owned), Washington Post (jewish owned) CNBC (jewish owned, CNN (Jewish owned), ABC (Jewish owned, NBC (jewish owned) CBS (jewish owned). Hollywood support - all star team of jewish actors like Sean Penn and other jewsih personalities like chess star Kasparov. Anti- Russia culture stars like the jewish Pussy riot girls that have sex with dead chickens.
And Scott Ritter tells us the problem is NAZIS. Man up, Scott. The problem is jews.
The real Nazis disappeared in 1945. Today’s so-called Nazis in Ukraine are Ukrainian nationalist soccer hooligans and Hell’s Angels lookalikes definitely financed by jews.
I would not be surprised to learn that all so-called neo nazis groups in the world are financed by jews to keep the jew as victim theme alive.
Certainly many if not most of the people caught painting swastikas on walls all over the world have turned out to be jews.
None of the above named jews are fighting in the Ukraine war. If anything they are sipping pinja colladas on the beach in Haifa, siphoning off US aid money, or selling US weapons on the black market.
As usual poor White Christians have been coerced into killing their fellow poor White Christians in the Ukraine. Reminds me of the French Revolution, WW 1 and WW 2. Same old. Same old.
The first step in confronting the enemy is to recognize who they are.
I see by the CBC that there is a national holocaust monument in Ottawa erected in 2017 or by the Trudeau government whose bagman is a descendant of the Sammy Bronfman organized crime family, one of whose members is currently in jail for sex trafficking.
This is disgraceful. Pull the dam thing down.
If Victoria Nuland (Nudleman) gets any fatter, she will be doubly the proverbial “Elephant-in-the-Room”.
Citizenfitz and KJ, Thank you for your comments and research.
You know it is difficult to even watch the TV today. I feel as if some Jew is projectile vomiting on me every time I switch it on.
Almighty God we humbly ask that you see fit to deliver us from the Synagog of Satan and his children.
We ask you to stretch out your hand of judgement upon the world and restore your righteousness among men. We ask that you rebuke those who falsely claim to be your chosen and bring low the prideful and wicked. Thy will be done.
In Jesus name.
Dear Rav Goyim,
Israel gets official open season on Americans and the press at the same time. While they’ve always done so with impunity with official US cover, now the Jews and their Biden puppet have just simply handed Israhell a formally stamped 2-for-1 hunting license - journalists and Americans. -Kj
Israel demands full impunity for killing Shireen Abu Akleh – and the Biden administration agrees
If Americans Knew | September 12, 2022
Yair Lapid’s brazen demand for impunity for the killing of Shireen Abu Akleh is a disturbing reflection of the US-Israeli relationship.
By Mitchell Plitnick, reposted from Mondoweiss
Despite the best efforts of the Israeli and American governments, the spirit of Shireen Abu Akleh simply won’t go away.
Shireen’s family won’t let her memory fade into the background in Washington or Tel Aviv as the memories of so many thousands of Palestinians have in the past.
Neither will the broader Palestinian and Palestine-advocacy communities. But perhaps the most crucial group that is keeping Shireen’s spirit hovering over the politics of Israel’s policies, especially in Washington, are her fellow journalists.
Israel’s “report” on Shireen’s murder, as expected, admitted that one of its soldiers was responsible for her death, but duplicitously said that it was the result of an errant bullet during an exchange of fire with Palestinian “terrorists.”
That this is nonsense has been clearly established. The exchange of fire at the time of Shireen’s killing was blocks away. The Israeli military unit involved in the murder was the elite Duvdevan unit, a highly-trained bunch who do not fire wildly, but at targets, generally Palestinian people.
The bullet which killed Shireen penetrated a small opening between her helmet and bullet-proof vest, with word “PRESS” clearly written in both the front and back. All of this is substantial proof of, at the very least, an intentional killing.
But in the wake of the report being published, we saw a very clear, and very disturbing, demonstration of where the Israeli government under Yair Lapid and the U.S. administration of Joe Biden stand, not only the issue of Shireen’s murder but of the entire relationship between Israel and its benefactor and protector in Washington.
Israel had long since made it clear that it would not prosecute the soldier who murdered Shireen Abu Akleh. In response, the State Department and Secretary of State Antony Blinken modified their very humble request, reducing it to a simple review of Israel’s rules of engagement when their soldiers entered a Palestinian area under their iron-fisted occupation.
But even this was too much to ask in Israel’s eyes. “I will not allow an IDF soldier that was protecting himself from terrorist fire to be prosecuted just to receive applause from abroad,” Lapid stated. “No one will dictate our rules of engagement to us, when we are the ones fighting for our lives. Our soldiers have the full backing of the government of Israel and the people of Israel.”
Lapid’s message had two intended audiences. The first was the Israeli public, which eagerly gobbles up any example of an Israeli leader defying what they see as the United States ordering them about [despite the fact that the U.S. gives Israel over $10 million per day, and expends another $10 million/day on items because they benefit Israel].
Most Israelis would draw the line at any action that might jeopardize the absolute and lock-step U.S. financial, military, and diplomatic support. But, to date, reactions from the Biden administration indicate Israel has not even approached such a line.
This is evidenced by the reaction of Lapid’s second audience, which is the Biden administration itself. State Department Spokesman Ned Price’s initial reaction to Israel’s initial report—an obvious whitewash that Israel, in its hubris, made no effort to disguise—made it clear that the U.S. was unwilling to press Israel about Shireen, but needed also to appease some in the Democratic Party who were unwilling to simply forget about her.
“We welcome Israel’s review of this tragic incident, and again underscore the importance of accountability in this case, such as policies and procedures to prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future,” Price said.
And when Israel made it clear they would not do this, Price’s understudy, Deputy Spokesperson Vedant Patel, repeated an embarrassing mantra:
“To reiterate, we continue to underscore the importance of accountability in this case, and we’re going to continue to impress our Israeli partners to closely review its policies and practices on the rules of engagement, and consider additional steps that will mitigate risk in this circumstance.”
One could almost feel sorry for Patel, being hung out to dry in front of experienced foreign policy reporters with nothing but this tissue-thin line to offer.
Under a series of questions from journalists, he could do nothing but continue to repeat himself, despite the fact that what he was describing was not only the opposite of accountability, but was the United States government once again choosing to shirk its responsibility to protect its citizens from a foreign government that has killed them with impunity.
Previous Americans killed by Israel
That was what Patel had to defend. Shireen Abu Akleh was only the latest American citizen to be killed by Israel. Nearly twenty years ago, it was activist Rachel Corrie, crushed under a U.S.-made and supplied, but Israeli-modified Caterpillar armored bulldozer.
Twelve years ago, it was 18-year old Furkan Dogan, killed by Israeli commandos on the Mavi Marmara as it tried to bring food and supplied to people being starved by Israel’s blockade of Gaza.
Six year ago, Mahmoud Shaalan was gunned down while his hands were in the air at an Israeli checkpoint in the West Bank.
Earlier this very year, Israeli forces ripped 78-year old Omar Assad from his car, abused him, handcuffed and blindfolded him, causing such stress he died of a heart attack. [And 55 years ago Israeli forces killed 34 American servicemen.]
Israel has never been held accountable, nor held anyone accountable, for the deaths of these American citizens. Lapid’s words made it clear they would not stand for anything less than total impunity regarding these murders.
Former Prime Minister Naftali Bennett clarified Israel’s stance. “At any given moment,” Bennett tweeted on Tuesday, “there are Palestinian terrorists trying to murder Israelis. Not the other way round. We are not trigger-happy, but our moral duty is to hit terrorists and thereby save lives.” The army, Bennett stated must be “detached from any pressure, internal or external.”
Sifting through the blatant racism and dishonesty of Bennett’s characterization of Israeli military innocence and Palestinian bloodthirstiness, he is plainly stating that an Israeli soldier can shoot any Palestinian any time she or he wishes, and the very nature of their respective identities as Israeli soldier and Palestinian “terrorist” places the Israelis above reproach. And above any kind of law.
Lapid’s message got through to both the Israeli public and the Biden administration. But how well is that message playing more broadly in the United States?
Democratic hawks like Senate Foreign Relations Chair Bob Menendez—who was in Israel earlier this week—have been remarkably quiet about Shireen lately, but even Menendez, earlier this year, expressed concern over her killing and called for a credible investigation of her death.
The silence of pro-Israel Democrats is indicative of the difficult position Israel has put them in, and it has left a vacuum which is amplifying the more critical Democratic voices.
Outgoing Rep. Marie Newman, for example, tweeted, “The @StateDept’s response to Israel’s statement refusing to prosecute the soldiers responsible for killing Palestinian American Shireen Abu Akleh is woefully inadequate. I expect nothing short of a US investigation that leads to accountability. It’s the least we can do.”
Rep. Andre Carson (D-IN), who earlier this year introduced the “Justice for Shireen Act,” said the Israeli report fails to “address the key questions around Shireen Abu Akleh’s death and falls short of what we expect when a U.S. citizen is killed on foreign soil.”
Rep. Raul Grijalva, said that Secretary of State Antony Blinken “has a responsibility to hold Israel accountable and demand justice for [Abu Akleh’s] death,” and that “the silence is damning and deafening. We need justice for Shireen.”
Perhaps most important was the statement of Senator Chris Van Hollen (D-MD), who, while at the progressive end of the Democratic Party is still closer to the center than the Representatives who spoke out and is up for re-election this November (albeit in a race that he is universally seen as safe for him).
Van Hollen tweeted, “The crux of the “defense” in this IDF report is that a soldier was “returning fire” from militants. But investigations @NYTimes @AP @CNN @washingtonpost & @UN found no such firing at the time. This underscores need for independent US inquiry into this American journalist’s death.”
There is no factual argument that can refute what these Members of Congress have said, which is why Israel’s supporters on Capitol Hill are trying to avoid engaging with them. Indeed, if anything is to be critiqued it is the call for an impartial U.S. investigation. As unlikely as the investigation is, impartiality should it come about is even harder to imagine.
It is crucial, however, that these calls be supported. Shireen’s murder must remain on the agenda past the November elections. Until then, even the hardiest Democrats are going to tone down criticism of their President and Secretary of State.
But in two months, that pressure will be lifted. And the Biden administration must be taken to task for its behavior here. As hypocritical as it was for Biden to fist-bump Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, it’s important to recall that, as important a figure as Jamal Khashoggi was, he was a U.S. resident, not a citizen.
Shireen Abu Akleh, like Rachel Corrie, Furkan Dogan, Mahmoud Shaalan, and Omar Assad before her, was an American citizen. Foreign countries are not supposed to be allowed to murder American citizens with impunity, especially when they are killed for doing their jobs as reporters.
But Yair Lapid brazenly stated that Israel must be allowed to do just that. President Joe Biden and Secretary of State Antony Blinken supported Lapid in that statement, in effect. That’s something that Shireen’s fellow citizens can’t allow.

His Beatitude Metropolitan Tikhon Offers Condolences for the Repose of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II
SYOSSET, NY [OCA]
On September 8, 2022 His Beatitude Metropolitan Tikhon sent a letter of condolence to His Majesty King Charles III on the occasion of the repose of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the longest reigning British monarch and the head of state of the United Kingdom, Canada, and many Commonwealth countries around the world.
The text of the letter reads as follows:
I write to express my condolences on the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
Your mother’s long reign as Queen of the United Kingdom, Canada, and the other Commonwealth realms was one marked by many changes, and throughout all of them, she maintained and cultivated the esteem not only of her subjects, but of all the peoples of the Anglophone world and beyond.
She was, for many, the only monarch of the United Kingdom and Canada in their lifetime, and doubtless, she will be remembered for many years longer.
For my part, I assure Your Majesty of my prayers in this season of grief. All of the faithful of the Orthodox Church in America join together with our Canadian faithful in praying for Your Majesty and the people of the United Kingdom, Canada, and the other Commonwealth realms during this difficult time of mourning and transition.
We pray also for the well-being of Your Majesty and the royal family, and that the Lord God would prosper Your Majesty’s reign.
Archbishop of Washington
Metropolitan of all America and Canada
Do I think Queen Elizabeth is a saint?
No, I don’t. Only heaven can reveal a saint. But, she had very admirable Christian virtues, patience, forbearance, nobility, and courage, as a woman, a wife, a mother, a grandmother, and a great-grandmother, as a princess, a war veteran, and later, in an accident of destiny, the Queen to whom duty was sacred and who lived for God and Country, who was both Head of State and Head of the Nation.
She was an incredible witness to the tectonic changes of living history while being a part of it, and now she’s gone. And she was aware that she was a part of it, and that’s why she wore such bright colored clothing. She wanted to make sure that people could get at least a glimpse of their queen in a big crowd. She wasn’t very tall.
“I need to be seen!” Not for her own ego, but because she was the Sovereign. Many people in the crowd would never get to meet her, but she wanted them to be able to say, “I saw the Queen”.
As the British Monarchist League eloquently explains within their description of Britain’s Constitutional Monarchy:
>Head of State - As Head of State, The Queen undertakes constitutional and representational duties which have developed over one thousand years of history.
There are inward duties, with The Queen playing a part in State functions in Britain. Parliament must be opened, Orders in Council have to be approved, Acts of Parliament must be signed, and meetings with the Prime Minister must be held.
There are also outward duties of State, when The Queen represents Britain to the rest of the world. For example, The Queen receives foreign ambassadors and high commissioners, entertains visiting Heads of State, and makes State visits overseas to other countries, in support of diplomatic and economic relations.
>Head of the Nation - As ‘Head of Nation’, The Queen’s role is less formal, but no less important for the social and cultural functions it fulfils.
These include: providing a focus for national identity, unity and pride; giving a sense of stability and continuity; recognising success, achievement and excellence; and supporting service to others, particularly through public service and the voluntary sector.
These roles are performed through different types of engagement. By means of regular visits through every part of the United Kingdom, The Queen is able to act as a focus for national unity and identity.
I’ve always felt a connection to Queen Elizabeth. We shared a birth date, and she acceded to the throne the year and two months before I was born, 26 years apart in age. Elizabeth was crowned the following year after her accession and my birth, in June, 1953 in Westminster Cathedral. I vaguely recall seeing a TV program, perhaps for her 10th anniversary, a historical rerun of her coronation — in black and white TV.
I grew up in the Episcopal Church, part of the Anglican Communion nominally and spiritually under the Archbishop of Canterbury. Through the church, I also felt an affinity for the Queen. Even more so now after converting to Orthodoxy 25 years ago, and studying the history of the Orthodox Church in the British Isles. One of the greatest pre-conquest archbishops of Canterbury was St. Theodore of Tarsus, a Syrian Greek in the 7th century.
The Queen entered one world to start her reign, and now when she passed away, it is a completely different world, a more chaotic one, and one that feels like to me its on a long slide to hell.
We’re all feeling that now. I once read an article that described her role as The Queen of Ashes, the queen who assumed the throne after WWII of a crumbling, disintegrating, great empire on which once “the sun never set”.
Before she succeeded to the throne, India had already broken away and more of the British possessions started to revolt and declare independence, especially in Africa. The British Mandate for Palestine was done in 1948, constantly subverted and beaten to a bloody pulp by Zionist Communist Jewish terrorists who declared war on the Brits, Palestinians, Arabs years before. The day the Mandate ended, the Jews declared the independent state of Israel into existence.
Princess Elizabeth was 19 when the US dropped the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945, ushering in the era of nuclear weapon escalation and the Cold War.
Through many years of bloodshed, toil, troubles, a new world was taking shape, and elites were drunk on utopian dreams of a new era of peace and prosperity, the UN was established. Many of the colonies who fought tooth and nail for independence, once free, eventually came to join the Commonwealth of Nations as free states, some electing to keep Queen Elizabeth as their head of state.
What Britannia lost in imperial colonies, she regained in the commonwealth of equal standing nations.
The Queen was stoic, wise, dignified, and a phenomenal leader, skilled in tact and diplomacy. She was extremely intelligent and well educated, but not a useless “public intellectual”. She was good natured, gracious, with a sense of humor in private, as anecdotes are now coming out. She was the embodiment of 2000 years of English, Scottish, and Welch, and Northern Irish church & secular history and national traditions, which she knew and understood very well.
She did her best to be a good woman, steward, and queen living a Christ-centered life, with a simple, sturdy faith in Christ. She prayed a lot. The Queen was good friends with Billy Graham.
In public life for 70 years, she never had a misstep, never stepped outside constitutional bounds, never had a personal scandal although Prince Philip had a light brush in the 50s involving membership in an elite private men’s club, and she was certainly surrounded by scandals galore. Her reign was launched on the coattails of scandal of world epic proportions when she was still a child, one which by accident made her the heir presumptive to the throne.
Her father, King George VI acceded to the throne in 1936 upon the abdication of his brother, King Edward VIII.
Edward VIII ruled for less than a year and was never crowned. He stepped down to marry Wallis Simpson, a twice-divorced salacious American woman, his mistress of two years, after realizing she would not have been acceptable as queen. He abdicated the throne and, while childless at the time, any future children he might have had were excluded from the line of succession.
King Edward VIII inherited the throne from his father King George V, Queen Elizabeth II’s grandfather. With Edward’s abdication and the assumption of the throne of King George VI, Elizabeth became the heir presumptive.
She was ten years old with all of this happening to embroil the Royal Family and the government, and would have certainly remembered the acrimony and chaos inside the royal family and and the turmoil of the near constitutional crisis her uncle created with his affair and intention to marry Boston-born American socialite, Wallis Simpson.
Only months into Edward’s reign, a constitutional crisis was caused by his proposal to marry Simpson, who had divorced her first husband and was seeking a divorce from her second, the romance between this rather bizarre couple was adulterous, promiscuous, and highly scandalous in England and across the Atlantic in America.
In fact, when it came to Wallis Simpson’s own divorce proceedings in English court from her second husband, Ernest Simpson, an Anglo-American shipping executive and former officer in the Coldstream Guards with its salacious details, the UK press was ordered blacked out, but the sensational King Edward VIII-Simpson scandal was published everywhere else, especially in America.
I personally believe that Edward VIII was somewhere on the autistic spectrum, and Wallis had a lot of mental, physical, and emotional issues of her own. The romance was such that the rocks in her head filled the holes in his.
The prime ministers of the United Kingdom and the Dominions opposed the marriage, arguing a divorced woman with two living ex-husbands was politically and socially unacceptable as a prospective queen consort.
Additionally, such a marriage would have conflicted with Edward’s status as titular head of the Church of England, which, at the time, disapproved of remarriage after divorce if a former spouse was still alive. Edward knew the Baldwin government would resign if the marriage went ahead, which could have forced a general election and would have ruined his status as a politically neutral constitutional monarch.
Baldwin informed him that his subjects would deem the marriage morally unacceptable, largely because remarriage after divorce was opposed by the Church of England, and the people would not tolerate Simpson as queen.
As king, Edward was the titular head of the Church, and the clergy expected him to support the Church’s teachings. The Archbishop of Canterbury, Cosmo Gordon Lang, was
vocal in insisting that Edward must go.
Edward proposed an alternative solution of a morganatic marriage, in which he would remain king but Simpson would not become queen consort. She would enjoy some lesser
title instead, and any children they might have would not inherit the throne. This was supported by senior politician Winston Churchill in principle, and some historians suggest that he conceived the plan.
In any event, it was ultimately rejected by the British Cabinet, the supreme decision making body, as well as other Dominion governments of Australia, Canada, and South Africa. Baldwin then presented Edward with three options: give up the idea of marriage; marry against his ministers’ wishes; or abdicate.
It was clear that Edward was not prepared to give up Simpson, and he knew that if he married against the advice of his ministers, he would cause the government to resign, prompting a constitutional crisis. He chose to abdicate.
Edward duly signed the instruments of abdication at Fort Belvedere on 10 December 1936 in the presence of his younger brothers: Prince Albert, Duke of York, next in line for the throne; Prince Henry, Duke of Gloucester; and Prince George, Duke of Kent.
The document included these words: “declare my irrevocable determination to renounce the throne for myself and for my descendants and my desire that effect should be given to this instrument of abdication immediately”.
The next day, the last act of his reign was the royal assent to His Majesty’s Declaration of Abdication Act 1936. As required by the Statute of Westminster, all the Dominions had already consented to the abdication.
Edward abdicated the throne for himself and his future descendants which meant his brother, the Duke of York, succeeded to the throne as George VI. According, George VI’s eldest daughter, Princess Elizabeth, became the heir presumptive.
Having been a 10-year old living through all of this turmoil with a rampaging news media on both sides of the Atlantic, it would certainly have left a very deep impression on Elizabeth for the rest of her life, so it is absolutely no wonder that she kept a velvet-gloved, iron-handed discipline on herself and the Royal Family.
The Queen loved her country and the Commonwealth, she had a special affection for, and deep relationship with, the people of Scotland. She was very patriotic to the UK, a constitutionalist who firmly believed in Britain’s constitutional monarchy, and remained impeccably dutiful to the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth all of her life.
She’s survived so much, for so long and still is deeply liked by her country, and that’s amazing to me.
The Queen was a great example of strength, during good times, difficult ones, times of seismic changes, and times of grief. If there was anyone from whom this world today could learn modesty, self-discipline, courtesy, courage, and grace under pressure at all times then it is Queen Elizabeth II.
I can only ditto what Citizenfitz said, she was always in my world, too, a touchstone in a way.
I’m an amateur historian with a great love for Orthodox Church history, of Greek, Highland Scot, English (with very old Anglo-Saxon roots in Derbyshire), French, and German ancestry with roots in Colonial America. Two of my direct maternal ancestors fought with George Washington.
The Queen and Prince Philip and their story, touched upon many places in my life and family history.
The Queen saw the careers of 15 British prime ministers move in and out of her reign, starting with Winston Churchill (whom she fired), ending with Lizard Truss. Her reign spanned the terms of 14 presidents from Dwight Eisenhower to now Joe Biden; 13 of which she personally met, excluding Lyndon Baines Johnson.
When she was born, Calvin Coolidge was POTUS, followed by Herbert Hoover, Franklin D Roosevelt was elected president with Princess Elizabeth was 7. She came of age during WWII, and would know well Roosevelt and Harry S. Truman, the last president before her accession to throne.
She was a WWII veteran, one of the few living in the world before her death, and was the only modern head of state who served. After months of begging her father to let his heir pitch in for the war effort, Elizabeth—then an 18-year-old princess—joined the Women’s Auxiliary Territorial Service during World War II.
Known as Second Subaltern Elizabeth Windsor, she donned a pair of coveralls and trained in London as a mechanic and military truck driver. The queen was the only female member of the royal family to have entered the armed forces and was the only living head of state who served in World War II.
Princess Elizabeth paid for her wedding dress with clothing ration coupons, which was made by the royal clothier. As far as royal weddings go, hers was quite modest due to the austere post war years. She married her third cousin Philip Mountbatten, formerly prince of Greece and Denmark, on November 20, 1947, whom she’d fallen in love with when she was 13.
With very strict austerity measures still in effect during the postwar recovery years, she had to save up ration coupons to purchase the material for her wedding dress, with small supplemental help from the government with 200 ration coupons. It still took many months to make, the royal clothiers hand sewing some 10,000 seed pearls obtained from America into the floral patterns symbolizing rebirth of Britain after the war.
Elizabeth was queen regnant of 32 sovereign states during her lifetime and 15 at the time of her death. She visited 120 countries which is phenomenal, considering there 195 countries in the world, 193 that belong to the UN, and two observer states — the Holy See and the State of Palestine.
The Queen visited 62% of the countries of the world during her reign, not counting the places she visited before she assumed the throne. Most of those visits were broadcast in the US, even if only briefly on the nightly news. She visited Palestine, but never Israel.
She always seemed to have the right things to say coming out of her own convictions to the people and countries she visited full of encouragement and hope, especially the former dependencies become sovereign states, sometimes violently, who then eventually joined the Commonwealth of Nations.
Americans don’t have a royal family of our own, and so there’s always been a certain aura to British royalty, and a fascination with it.
Contrary to popular wisdom, Queen Elizabeth was largely politically powerless under the constitutional monarchy. She was required to follow a firm rule of remaining apolitical and neutral while political currents raged around her.
The Royal Family exercised largely “soft power” through the charities, military organizations, educational initiatives, and civic associations they support and are involved with. Charles worked very closely on environmental issues, with Schwab and the WEF, and now he will have to disconnect from that as king. I’ll be curious to see what happens with him.
“She reigned, but she didn’t rule.” The reigning monarch, as the head of state for not only the UK but the chosen sovereign some 15 other countries of the Commonwealth, is supposed to be completely apolitical in public and private life.
Per the British Constitution, she had no executive or legislative power, her role as head of state was largely ceremonial and symbolic, although there are still some powers, perogatives, and privileges that the reigning monarch still has in reserve, such as approving the Prime Minister, usually a rubber stamp, signing legislation, also usually another rubber stamp after consultations with the Cabinet involved in proposed legislation, make formal declarations of war, and the like.
The Commander-in-Chief of the British Armed Forces is a position vested in the British monarch, currently King Charles III, who as Sovereign and head of state is the “Head of the Armed Forces”.
Long-standing constitutional convention, however, has vested de facto executive authority, by the exercise of Royal Prerogative powers, in the Prime Minister and the Secretary of State for Defence, and the Prime Minister (acting with the support of the Cabinet) makes the key political decisions on the *use* of the armed forces.
The authority to issue orders and give commands to military personnel is delegated by the Sovereign to the Prime Minister and Secretary of State for Defence, who in turn delegate their authority to career military officers.
The Sovereign however, remains the “ultimate authority” of the military, with officers and personnel swearing allegiance only to the monarch.
The truth is, Parliament could legislatively dissolve the monarchy in a day, without referendum if they were so inclined, particularly worrisome that there is a growing “cancel culture” movement among younger people to abolish the British monarchy altogether. And, the world would be an even sorrier place than it is now if that were so.
As I grew up and became older, tried to take time out when she made her appearances on TV, usually the evening news, on different occasions through the years.
It was difficult to remember my own family members birthdays, but I could always remember the Queen’s.
As for the demoness Lizard Truss, there’s just something very wrong with her, but I won’t dwell on it right now.
All I can say is that Queen Elizabeth steadfastly did her duty right up to the very end, meeting with and confirming the new Prime Minister on Tuesday, September 6. Just prior, Boris Johnson met with the Queen to formally offer his resignation.
In going back through the two photos taken of the Queen just before meeting Truss, and again for the photo op, I noticed the Queen’s hands — the backs of them are very blue, and her right leg and ankle looked quite swollen. She was obviously in very frail condition.
Local Scottish guests of the Queen at Balmoral over the weekend, including a local clergyman, when interviewed said that she was as chipper and alert as usual, and so it came as a big surprise that she’d taken a sudden downturn and then more suddenly passed away on Thursday.
I’ve worked in assisted living, convalescent, and hospice for the elderly, and when extremities are that blue, it’s primary evidence of peripheral vascular disease (PVD). It’s a blood circulation disorder that causes the blood vessels outside of the heart and brain to narrow, block, or spasm, and can eventually result in heart failure.
If peripheral circulation is that poor as seen in the photos, it’s extremely painful, and organs aren’t receiving a good blood supply either, including the heart. It can be a sign of multi-organ failure.
I think she was ready to go months ago. She and Philip were married for 73 years. She was more bent over than she was at his funeral, and I think in a lot of pain not only from the osteoporosis in her back, but from the vascular problems, and that she was suffering from “broken heart syndrome” when Philip died last year.
I cared for half a dozen or so old married couples over the years working in senior care, and almost invariably, within 18 months of one dying, the other would pass away. One nurse called it “mated swan syndrome,” explaining that some swans mated for life, and when one mate died, the other simply pined away out of loneliness and a broken heart.
Broken heart syndrome is a real thing. It’s also called stress-induced cardiomyopathy or takotsubo cardiomyopathy, can strike even if you’re young and healthy. A real-life broken heart can actually lead to cardiac consequences.
Broken heart syndrome is believed to occur when someone loses a close partner or spouse. Death of a spouse is recognised as one of the most stressful things that can happen to a person. But as well as the mental anguish and grief (which are themselves very debilitating and not to be dismissed), many forget that stress also has a physical component.
Stress can cause numerous physical ailments, and if the stress is sudden and serious enough, such as if a spouse dies, then these ailments can be very serious, affecting the heart. In broken heart syndrome, a part of the heart temporarily enlarges and doesn’t pump well, while the rest of the heart functions normally or with even more forceful
contractions. Researchers are just starting to learn the causes, and how to diagnose and treat it.
But even without the direct heart damage, the physical and emotional consequences of severe grief and anguish can take a serious toll on the body.
This may be another reason for the stories we hear, and what I’d seen, which are invariably about people who have been together for several decades. The longevity of their relationship is invariably cited as evidence of their commitment, which is true, but it also means both partners are older. The aged body is a lot more frail and rundown than a youthful one, so the shock of losing a very long-term partner may be more than it can handle or recover from.
It probably explains why we don’t hear about it happening to younger couples when one partner dies, as the surviving partner is more physically resilient.
And I’m sure that’s what happened to the Queen when her husband, consort, and sworn liege-man, Prince Philip died. He was always 3 steps behind her. How can I, or anyone ever forget the Queen sitting all alone in complete isolation, huddled in prayer with her mask on and head bowed, in the pews of St. George Chapel at Windsor Castle during Prince Philip’s funeral, because COVID and that entire horror?
That scene broke my heart. She’d refused to break the lock-down rules, even for herself made it all the more poignant.
What really caught my eye, though, was when she was walking into the chapel before the funeral, she abruptly stopped and looked back over her shoulder as if she’d forgotten something, or something was wrong, and it was.
That’s where Prince Philip always accompanied her for 73 years, to her side and a half-step behind her at all formal, ceremonial occasions as her liege-man. He was gone from her public intimate space and it didn’t feel right. She paused in her walking for just a second or two with a slight expression of puzzlement, a little bit of a slump, then she squared her shoulders and moved on.
That moment of bewilderment had to have been, “Where’s Philip?” I think that’s when the realization of Philip’s death really began to sink in, as the numbness began to wear off and there are no more distractions or things needing to be done. Something just went out of her at that moment evidenced by that very slight, momentary loss of her legendary composure.
In the months after the funeral, there were COVID lockdowns to deal with, social unrest, economic troubles, the domestic political condition of the UK was in extreme turmoil, Parliament in an uproar, with Boris Johnson being the consummate jackass and all that. She was slowly withdrawing from much of her public life, but she was not the kind of person to leave unfinished constitutional business when it came to the government UK.
Over the past year there were bits of news that the Queen was not up to attending this or that important function, she was spending much more time at Balmoral, and Prince Charles, who surely must have the world’s longest apprenticeship ever, began filling in for her at meetings and events.
She knew her time was drawing near the past months. And, I think she knew it was close at hand last Tuesday, judging by the blueness of her hands, the swelling of her leg, her very bent over back, all of which must have been quite painful under that cheerful stoicism of hers. It was by sheer will and determination to see the transition through between Johnson and Truss.
She was impeccably dressed, as usual, carrying her walking stick and signature black handbag, which she always carried indoors and out. Johnson commented a few hours ago that at his meeting with her to tender his resignation that “she was on it, but not well.”
On September 8, all of the loose ends under her reign were finally tied up, the government was in the Sovereign’s hands until the transition between the old and new prime ministers could be made, and then the Queen’s job was done.
Her incredibly strong disposition and will to see things through, to complete the royal engagement with Truss to perform the sovereign’s transfer of the prime ministerial authority after Johnson had resigned carried her through. And then she could finally rest, and I feel she, as the country’s queen, actually chose to do so in her beloved Scotland, a nation forever under the patronage of St. Andrew the Apostle.
A little after her death announcement, people began gathering at Buckingham Palace. It was a showery day. After several thousand had shown up to pay their respects, a double rainbow burst over Buckingham Palace. I try not to place to much stock in signs as a form of divine communication, it’s easy to get carried away.
But there are signs, and then there are signs, and the only way I could interpret the rainbows was as small tokens hinting that Queen Elizabeth was at peace, having been told by the Good Lord, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant.”
As Christian Queen, she carried the cross of a Christian sovereign for a very long time.
At the start of her long farewell to the people, her first resting place was at Holyroodhouse Palace, the medieval Holy Rood Abbey guesthouse which was eventually developed into a royal residence by Scotland’s kings.
There is an ancient, Old English poem, “The Dream of the Rood” or “The Dream of the Cross.”
In this Old English poem, there are three sections.
In the first section, the speaker presents an image of the rood or cross on which Christ was crucified. In the second section, the cross describes how it suffered along with Christ and did not yield to the torments of the crucifiers. In the last section, it seems the speaker has woken up from his dream.
Then he elaborates on his realization and will to accept what the rood has told him in his dream. He wishes an eternal life along with other saints who were true to Christ’s words.
As an Anglican, and the secular head of the Church, Her Majesty would know this English poem dating all the way back to the Anglo-Saxon era.
For the poem:
God grant this is so for Elizabeth, always faithful to God and Country.
The Abbey stands in ruins now, but it is steeped in all of the momentous events of Scottish history so intertwined with English history that Elizabeth was fully aware of, including Church history and Scotland’s saints.
Legend relates that in 1127, while King David I was hunting in the forests to the east of Edinburgh during the Feast of the Cross, he was thrown from his horse after it had been startled by a hart. According to variations of the story, the king was saved from being gored by the charging animal when it was startled either by the miraculous appearance of a holy cross descending from the skies, or by sunlight reflected from a crucifix which suddenly appeared between the hart’s antlers while the king attempted to grasp them in self-defence.
As an act of thanksgiving for his escape, David I founded Holyrood Abbey on the site in 1128. In the church was preserved, in a golden reliquary, an object said to be a fragment of the True Cross brought by David’s mother, St. Margaret, from Waltham Abbey, and known thereafter as the Black Rood of Scotland (the Holyrood (cross)).
At the battle of Neville’s Cross, in 1346, this precious relic fell into the hands of the English, and it was placed in Durham Cathedral, from where it disappeared at the Reformation.
The Parliament of Scotland met at the abbey in 1256, 1285, 1327, 1366, 1384, 1389 and 1410. In 1326, Robert the Bruce held parliament here, and there is evidence that Holyrood was being used as a royal residence by 1329.
The Treaty of Edinburgh–Northampton (1328), which ended the First War of Scottish Independence, was signed by Robert I in the “King’s Chamber” at Holyrood in March 1328. The abbey’s position close to Edinburgh Castle meant that it was often visited by Scotland’s kings, who were lodged in the guest house situated to the west of the abbey cloister.
And so, these were the times that Mel Gibson’s movie Braveheart attempted to encapsulate.

The drummer wears full dress with white bearskin cap, a present to the Scots Greys from Tsar Nicholas when Colonel-in-Chief of the regiment.
The Queen’s coffin is currently lying in state at St Giles Cathedral, the High Kirk of Edinburgh, to depart for England tomorrow.
St Giles’ Cathedral is the historic City Church of Edinburgh. With its famed crown spire it stands on the Royal Mile between Edinburgh Castle and the Palace of Holyroodhouse.
Also known as the High Kirk of Edinburgh, it is the Mother Church of Presbyterianism and contains the Chapel of the Order of the Thistle (Scotland’s chivalric company of knights headed by the late Queen, now by King Charles).
St. Giles the Hermit, was a hermit or monk active in the lower Rhône, southeast France, most likely in the 6th century. Revered as a saint, his cult became widely diffused but his hagiography is mostly legendary, but still beautiful. A town that bears his name grew up around the monastery he purportedly founded, which became a pilgrimage centre and a stop on the Way of Saint James in Spain. He is traditionally one of the Fourteen Holy Helpers.
In England, many ancient churches and hospitals were dedicated to St. Giles. One of the sections of the city of Brussels is named after him. In Germany, Giles was included among the so-called 14 Holy Helpers, a popular group of saints to whom people prayed, especially for recovery from disease, and for strength at the hour of death.
Also among the 14 were Saints Christopher, Barbara, and Blaise. Interestingly, Giles was the only non-martyr among them. Devotion to the “Holy Helpers” was especially strong in parts of Germany and in Hungary and Sweden. Such devotion made his popularity spread. Giles was soon invoked as the patron of the poor and the disabled.
Tonight, King Charles III, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward came together after the National Service of Thanksgiving to conduct the Vigil of the Princes as their mother’s coffin, topped with the Crown of Scotland, laid in state at St. Giles’ Cathedral in Edinburgh, Scotland.
The Crown, along with the other Honours, were presented to The Queen in 1953, after her coronation, at a National Service of Thanksgiving at St Giles’ Cathedral.
The four siblings stepped out beside their mother’s casket, draped in the Royal Standard of Scotland and topped with a floral wreath and the Crown of Scotland. For about 10 minutes, the royals joined the Royal Company of Archers, who will guard the Queen’s casket around the clock during its time in St. Giles, for a symbolic stand of guard as members of the public pay their respects.
The rare ritual has been performed only twice before in British history, first for the Queen’s grandfather, King George V, and a second time during the Queen Mother’s funeral in 2002.
It is from Edinburgh that my great-great grandfather, great-great grandmother and their seven children, along with her widowed sister’s family, departed and sailed to America in 1830. Landing in New Orleans, the family then went up the Mississippi River to St Louis, Missouri to work in the coal mines.
William IV was then king, the third son of Mad King George II that we rebelled against, and the penultimate monarch of Britain’s House of Hanover.
In 1838, the entire family was wiped out in one of several cholera epidemics with the exception of my great-grandfather, his maternal aunt, and four of her six children. My great-grandfather was 12, the oldest son, and he was naturally adopted by his aunt.
My great-great grandfather was a boy when his own family was driven out of the Highlands by the Clearances in the late 18th century, and forced to go Edinburgh to work in the coal mines there to survive. He would have known St. Giles Cathedral and Holyroodhouse Palace, but being in a poor coal mining family, attended his own parish.
“Thank you Ma’am, for everything”.
Farewell, dear Queen of Scotland, and Godspeed to you.
With love from Deplorableland, Heartland America.

Despite a momentary flap in the MSM, it has since been decided that Biden will not have to take a bus to the Queen’s funeral, despite the Prime Minister Lizard Truss’ very firm guidance for world leaders coming to London to take commercial flights and taking buses to the funeral instead of taking their own vehicles, traveling in motorcades, and banning helicopters flitting about the country.
It’s probably a very good idea that Biden not take the bus with other world leaders, despite the fact that he will bring with him The Beast and a zillion security vehicles for his motorcade, and being flying about in helicopters, I’m sure.
Putting up with a logistical security nightmare to accommodate the presidential motorcade on tight London streets instead of letting Biden roam the public, consequently keeping him out of arm’s reach of any kids as much as possible, is worth it. - Kj
Joe Biden Will Not Have To Get A Bus To The Queen’s Funeral, Says No.10
13 September, 2022
The Brew: Can You Imagine Biden on a Bus?
By JOHN ZMIRAK Published on September 13, 2022
Al Perrotta is on vacation. Though when he reads this he might cut it short … .
The Western Journal reports “complications” in Joe “President” Biden’s plans to visit the funeral of the beloved Queen Elizabeth II:
[Quote] As the preparations for Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral are in motion, foreign leaders coming from abroad will be required to travel by bus to the funeral at Westminster Abbey in London.
Instead [of limousines and helicopters] world leaders will be bussed “en masse” from West London to Westminster Abbey on Sept. 19, the day of the funeral, Politico added.
Private cars are not possible for transportation “because of tight security and road restrictions.”
With this news, one foreign ambassador based in London complained about Biden having to be transported this way.
“Can you imagine Joe Biden on the bus?” the ambassador said in a WhatsApp message on Sunday, Politico reported. [End quote]
The answer to that is obviously, yes. Biden seems like any other addled dementia victim who might step off a Greyhound, and start shaking hands with invisible people and muttering about ice cream, till he’s taken to the police station where Social Services can locate his ‘people’ and investigate them for elder abuse.
But then, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot looks like a homeless crackhead who’d ask you “Scuse me, scuse, me? I have a question … . Gimme twenty dollars! That’s my question!”
And Pennsylvania Senate candidate John Fetterman, loping around half-coherent in a hoodie at all times, looks like Uncle Fester — if The Addams Family had been a genuine horror story, not a comedy. And what’s with the second head he’s apparently growing from the back of his skull? Does anybody else here remember the 1989 Richard Grant comedy where that happens, How to Get Ahead in Advertising?
At least in that film the second head (which displaces the first) is a Thatcherite conservative. No such hope for Fetterman, who seems likely to beat RINO party nominee Mehmet Oz — a recent out and proud supporter of same-sex “marriage.” (Remember when Obama wouldn’t even back that? Is today’s GOP to the left of him?)
However, given Fetterman’s fragile health, we might well hope that a newly elected Gov. Doug Mastriano will get to appoint his Senate replacement sooner rather than later.
And of course “Rachel” Levine in his admiral’s uniform looks like the world’s loneliest meter maid.
Given Biden’s reported past episode of too-loud-for-even-Brits-to-ignore explosive flatulence among the royals, it’s likely that office betting pools are forming to predict his funeral gaffe.
It’s doubtful that anything could top the moment in 1992 when President George H.W. Bush vomited right on the Japanese Prime Minister during a formal dinner. As AllThatsInteresting.com reports. “Thanks to the incident, the Japanese instantly had a new saying: bushusuru. It literally means ‘to do a Bush.’ … Bushusuru has come to denote vomiting in a very public place.”
I remember hearing that for years, Japanese were training spider monkeys to mimic Bush vomiting, and dressing them in his suit. It’s amazing what losing a war will do to a country.
Elizabeth, I’m Coming to Join You!
Given how joyless, angry, and downright mean Biden has seemed in recent months, he seems like he’s good and sick of being president of a country, half of whose citizens he thinks are “semi-fascist” extremists.
So don’t put it past Sleepy Joe when he passes Her Majesty’s open coffin to get a wild hair and jump in with her, then close the lid. He might yell what Red Foxx used to during his fake heart attacks on Sanford And Son: “Elizabeth, I’m coming to join you!”
Secret Service should stay alert. No commoner has been interred with a British Royal since Richard III fell at Bosworth Field among his soldiers, and a parking lot was built over them.

Thank you, dear KathJuliane, for your reply to my question, which you answered brilliantly.
The entire post of yours is very informative and interesting, especially as it is full of your own personal thoughts about the Queen and why she meant so much to you. Sharing the same birthday. How cool is that? It must have taken you many hours to write, but it was time well spent, because it is a wonderful reading from start to finish.
I can now tell you that you have made me start to re-evaluate the Queen both as a person and as the head of state of the UK. Thank you so much.
Hundreds of thousands of people lining the streets to get a glimpse of the Queen’s hearse and motorcade and to bid farewell.

I have never seen anything like this, and perhaps naively, never expected to.
One of the busiest roads in London comes to a standstill in all directions as people abandon their cars to get a glimpse of Queen Elizabeth II on her final journey.
Just now saw that today is the feast day of Saint John Chrysostom.
Saint John, you recognized and spoke against the evils of your day. Please assist us who speak out against the evils of our day.
This is historic. - Kj
King Charles visits Northern Ireland as Queen Elizabeth’s coffin leaves Scotland
Sep 13, 2022 The King has returned to London after visiting Northern Ireland. He visited here dozens of times, but this was his first visit as monarch. And the first by a British King for nearly eight decades.
He was welcomed by crowds here and senior political figures and attended a service of reflection for the late Queen.
He also received a message of condolence from the Speaker of Northern Ireland’s assembly [Sinn Féin, Irish nationalist Alex Maskey] who acknowledged the Queen’s vital role in reconciliation after The Troubles and helping secure a lasting peace.
Government of the United Kingdom (Whitehall) has pointedly not invited (barred) Russia, Belarus, and Mayanmar to attend the Queen’s state funeral at all.
Iran is invited to attend, but only at the ambassador level.
Joe Stolen renamed us “United States of Kamare”.
United States of Kamala? Of Quagmire?
Revisiting the vile Uju Anya, Nigerian-born university professor of Black & African Grievance & Victimization Culture at Carnegie Mellon and her vicious screed against the defunct British Empire and the horrible Mau Mau civil war fought for Nigeria’s independence of 70 years ago heaped on Queen Elizabeth’s deathbed before she passed away:
I wonder if she realizes that Nigeria is now a member of the Commonwealth of Nations, and has been since 1960?
From 1960 to 1963, Nigeria was a sovereign state and an independent constitutional monarchy. Nigeria shared the monarch with Australia, Canada, United Kingdom, and certain other sovereign states. The monarch’s constitutional roles were mostly delegated to the governor-general of Nigeria.
Elizabeth II was the only monarch to reign during this period. As such, she was officially titled Queen of Nigeria.
The monarchy was unpopular with Nigerians and all political parties in Nigeria agreed that the country should be a republic. The monarchy was abolished on 1 October 1963, when Nigeria adopted the President of Nigeria as its head of state.
Queen Elizabeth II most graciously wished the new republic well on its first day independence:
“My husband and I return the happiest of memories of our visit to Nigeria, and our thoughts are with you on this memorable day. As you assume the heavy responsibility of independence, I send my good wish for a great and noble future. It is with special pleasure that I welcome you to our Commonwealth family of Nations. … May God bless and guide your country through the years to come.”_ en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monarchy_of_Nigeria_(1960%E2%80%931963)
The Queen sent a message to the new President Azikiwe, which said:
“As Nigeria becomes a republic, I send you, Mr. President, and to all the people of Nigeria my sincere good wishes for success and prosperity. During the past years I have shared in the hopes and aspirations of your great nation. I have the happy memories of the warmth and splendour of your hospitality and the many friends I made when I visited Nigeria.
I am sure that in the future the common memories of our long association will strengthen and increase the friendship of our countries as fellow members of the Commonwealth. I wish you all good fortune in the years to come, and pray for your country’s successful achievement of the great tasks you have undertaken.”
As Princess Elizabeth, she and Prince Philip were visiting Nigeria when they received word of her father King George V’s passing in 1952. It was first in Nigeria that she found out she was the new queen. - Kj

Nigerian story not complete without Queen Elizabeth – Buhari
The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), on Thursday, received with immense sadness news of the passing of Queen Elizabeth ll of the United Kingdom.
He also condoled with the Royal Family and Great Britain over the loss of the longest reigning monarch.
Buhari’s condolence message is contained in a statement signed late Thursday by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, titled ‘President Buhari mourns the demise of the Queen of England.’
Queen Elizabeth II of England died at the age of 96 on Thursday at the Balmoral Castle, the United Kingdom.
According to an official release by the Royal Family, the queen was said to have died peacefully.
In his condolence message, the President said “My family and I, and the more than 200 million Nigerians have learned with immense sadness of the passing of the Queen and the end of her unique and wonderful 70 year reign. Her late Majesty was the only British Sovereign known to 90 percent of our population.
“Our thoughts and sincere condolences are with the Royal Family and the people of the United Kingdom and the entire Commonwealth as we join the entire world in mourning her loss.
“The story of modern Nigeria will never be complete without a chapter on Queen Elizabeth ll, a towering global personality and an outstanding leader. She dedicated her life to making her nation, the Commonwealth and the entire world a better place.”
Buhari also welcomed the heir to the throne, King Charles III saying, “Your Majesty’s ascension to the throne in line with tradition and prays King Charles the Third’s reign will witness the continuing robust and sisterly relations between our two nations.”
Nigeria by religious demographic is largely Muslim in the north, and Christian in the south. - Kj
Wow! Your epitaphic commemoration of Queen Elizabeth here at RJN will have certainly impressed all, from the ordinary Royalist pleb to the seasoned fleet street hack”! A female special edition of “Alistair Cooke’s: Letter from America”.
Worthy of a “Times” editorial. “From a Devotee of Queen Lilibet with Historic Scottish/English Blood Lines, naturalized in America’s Heartland”.
God Bless the Patriot Americans!
Here’s an EO Akathist to St John Chrysostomos.
At the end is a powerful prayer to him.
If you aren’t familiar, akathists are prayer services that anyone can pray at home.
Akathist means “not sitting,” so it is a prayer service done standing, preferably in front of the icon of the subject of the akathist.
They are written to the Holy Trinity, Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ,
The Theotokos, and for feast days of Saints in the Orthodox Church.
We chant them in the EO, but they can be read normally.
This is what it sounds like in chant form.
The Sovereign Charles looked visibly haggard in Northern Ireland.
He has lost his beloved mother therefore he will.
Apparently, like his father he can lose his cool, he did in N. Ireland when his pen failed him when signing a document.
Ministers & Mandarins in Whitehall have decreed amongst others the Russian President is Barred from attending the Queen’s funeral, though President Putin was quick to send genuine condolences.
I can visualize King Charles (who as a young Prince overshot his remit by describing certain London Architecture as a “Monstrous carbuncle on the face of a much-loved and elegant friend”) having a gun put to his head by ministerial mongrels of leftish wokeism.
I would expect him to reply to Vlad with sincere gratitude in mind.
I doubt his minerals would stretch that far.
Dear The Englishman,
I’m very puzzled and curious about that fountain pen the King used, which is what it was, not a ballpoint pen.
It was faulty and leaked ink all over his fingers, and then when Camilla took it in hand, it leaked all over hers, too, leaving both trying to wipe it off with tissues or handkerchiefs.
I will assume it was not one of Charles’ personal pens, but a ceremonial one provided for the important ceremonial occasion, perhaps an oath signing. Having long experience with fountain pens, vintage fountain pens, and especially with fountain calligraphy pens, they can be cranky, especially if the ink bladder is deteriorating or a cartridge not seated correctly, or there’s a clog somewhere, or the ink is old.
I’ve had that ink spillage happen to me, make a mess, and ruined work I was doing when I was very active with calligraphy. It’s not just some balky ballpen Charles got irritated with (sure, he could have been more gracious on live video stream), but it fully caught him by surprise, and was an incident that could have ruined what important document or registry he was signing, and even his and Camellia’s clothing as well.
If it was one of Charles’ own, he should have tested it before hand. If it’s a gift pen, perhaps he should retire it. I understand he uses organic ink, and that could conceivably cause problems, too.
If it was provided to him by the North Ireland government, did no one test the cranky pen before hand to make sure it worked properly? That’s just sloppy and inattentive to important details of state.
Or, given it’s Northern Ireland and resentments die hard in a situation where there are still plenty of hard feelings, was it an act of petty, sneaky vengeance by some young Sinn Féin wannabe on the staff to sabotage that pen and make North Ireland’s sovereign react and look bad? I hate to think so.
Anyway, Michael Ramirez is a talented, conservative political cartoonist who has paid very fine tributes to Queen Elizabeth, one directly and one indirectly.
I think he quite fairly sums up the mood of many more knowledgeable conservative Americans’ thoughts and affections for the British Monarchy and people.
Two-time winner of the Pulitzer Prize and a three-time winner of the Sigma Delta Chi Award, editorial cartoonist Michael Ramirez wrote in the Las Vegas Review-Journal:
“Queen Elizabeth II lived a life dedicated to duty with grace, dignity, devotion and humility. She was a symbol of strength compassion, stability and continuity. She was Great Britain.”
The New King
As for boorish Whitehall insultingly kicking Russia in the teeth after both President Putin, as head of State, and Patriarch Kirill, as head of the Russian Orthodox Church, sent their very warm official condolences and best wishes for the new king, it can only be expected from Western governments.
Why Patriarch Kirill? Queen Elizabeth was the secular, political head of the Church of England, as well as head of State. So in temporal, diplomatic terms, he was formally condoling the British people over the loss of his peer, just as he would for the Pope (who is both head of the Catholic Church and temporal head of the Vatican State).
Let me tell you about peak Washington DC boorishness concerning the monumental Tear Drop of Grief, officially, “To the Struggle Against World Terrorism,” a generous, heart-felt gift from the Russian people to America.
It is an astonishingly poignant 10–story sculpture by Zurab Tsereteli, a famous Russian sculptor, that was given to the United States as an official gift from the Russian government as a memorial to the victims of the September 11 attacks in 2001, and the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.
Being on a decommissioned military site, it’s installation was worked out at the time with probably the Pentagon for artistic placement incorporating a landscape view of the Trade Towers Disaster site. When seen altogether, is a very telling piece of monumental memory about how not only Russia, but the entire world, wept that day with America.
Thousands of Iranians, for example, turned out that night to hold impromptu candlelight vigils and prayers mourning the losses in solidarity with the American people. A lot of Americans still don’t know that.
The Iranians and the Russians know something about Terror, and devastating terrorist events. I’m not a modernist, but this sculpture has a genius which still chokes me up.
The Tear Drop stands at the end of the former Military Ocean Terminal in Bayonne, New Jersey. Ceremonial groundbreaking occurred on September 16, 2005, during the Bush administration in a ceremony attended by Russian President Vladimir Putin, with very little publicity.
The monument was dedicated on September 11, 2006, in a ceremony attended only by former U.S. President Bill Clinton, and no one from the Bush administration that I know of, with even less publicity.
Probably not 1 in 100,000 Americans know about the Tear Drop even being given to the American people by the Russian people. Many New Yorkers don’t know where it is, because it’s across the Hudson Bay in New Jersey.
It has never been shown on the media during any of the 21 9-11 commemorations, either.
Here’s the story from the Daily Mail in 2015, because it’s sure not much in US media.
I see where CNN’s Urine Burnett, about as unreliable a source of information as you can get, says another oligarch, the 6th in recent months has been offed.
Putin may be ridding the earth of oligarchs, all of whom are jewish organized crime figures, in the name of fighting nazis.
Last night Burnett said there were a million Russian soldiers in the battle and about 200,000 Ukrainians. That is roughly the opposite of what is true.
CNN just makes this stuff up as they go along. A zero credibility TV network.
I think I’ve discovered the culprit in the King Charles fountain pen incident.
I perused several fountain pen hobbyist discussion groups on line, and was informed that King Charles always uses his favorite personal fountain pen which is a Parker, and he uses organic fountain pen ink.
a) Watching a longer clip of King Charles sitting down to sign the book, he took his pen out of his pocket. No one else handed him a pen.
b) Parker fountain pens do commonly leak after being taken into high altitude on an airplane ride. Air pressure plays an important role in the operation of the pens. King Charles and Queen Camilla had flown from Scotland to North Ireland.
c) According to the hobbyists, environmentally conscious Charles uses organic fountain pen ink in his Parker fountain pen, rather than a traditional ink recipe developed within the fountain pen industry specifically formulated for each brand of fountain pen, or else cross compatible.
For example, if you use ordinary India Ink in a good fountain pen, kiss the pen goodbye. Don’t ask me how I know.
I haven’t practiced calligraphy for over 20 years. Organic ink wasn’t even on the market then.
According to discussions, some hobbyists have satisfactory performance using organic ink as long as the fountain pens are cared for by flushing the ink out every time the pen is used, especially inks having a metallic or two-colored shimmer.
Unused organic ink left in the cartridge or bladder of the pen for any length of time will invariably clog the pen, and/or turns weird looking on paper when writing. For others no matter what they do, organic ink just doesn’t work for them at all — leaks, clogs the pen nibs, doesn’t flow right on the paper.
From what King Charles said yesterday “I hate this pen!” after it leaked, I take it that it’s not the first time it’s done so.
My suggestion would be to stop using organic ink in your favorite pen just to be ‘green’, Your Majesty. That is most likely the culprit.
A few notes on gold diggers. Wallice Simpson set the template but Megan Markle has improved upon it. The great weakness of the British public school system (Public schools in Britain are what Americans call private schools) is that they separate children from their mother’s love at a very early age.
The idea is to create psychopaths because they make the best soldiers. The downside is they create a lot of faggots, since there are no girls around or else men who are interested in but uncomfortable around women.
Bar tarts like Wallace Simpson and Megan Markle, sense this and so in order to gain entry into high society they always employ the same tactics - industrial strength knee pads.
Its works every time.
Some of the points raised in Mr. Langdon’s article do raise the question, have we been had?
I’ve been saving “oak apples” which fall from oak trees in the autumn with a view to making black permanent ink as used in ancient times. I wonder…?
Dear The Englishman,
Well, that’s quite the explosive “race traitor” rant from Langdon heaped on the late Queen’s head.
To begin with, he damns her for not being an absolute autocrat who could magically restore the United Kingdom to the way it was in 1950.
I mostly stopped paying attention to Langdon’s rants over at OO and Unz quite awhile ago. I’ll try to come up with a response in the next day or so.
Don’t quite know where he lives, presumably in the UK, but where is his politically active White advocacy group out on the streets protesting crimes against White people in what is an obvious covert race war terrorism against Whites like our fledgling National Justice Party here?
What’s Langdon doing to change the complex British Nationalities laws which evolved after the collapse of the British Empire when everyone was a British subject?
Queen Elizabeth was, and now King Charles, is bound by British Constitution to uphold the legislation passed by the Parliament, she had no legislative power of her own, and I don’t know if the monarch has “pocket veto” power like our own POTUS does who will just not sign the proposed legislation.
Situation is very similar to Putin’s and the Russian Federation as successor states to the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union.
He is president of a country politically and administratively divided into federal subjects which can be republics, provinces, independent cities (like city-states), federal areas, which has, at last count, somewhere around 195 distinct ethno-national groups (the majority of which are racially ethnic Russians and Ukrainians) all of which are by nationality Russian citizens, with four constitutionally recognized historical religions native to the Russian Empire — Orthodox Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, and the Judaisms of imperial Western Russia (Ukraine, Lithuania, Poland, Belarus), particularly Hassidim and Chabad.
Other Christian denominations and sects do not have the same standing as does Russian Orthodox Church. here is a scale of administrative law defining what designations, rights, regulations those other religious bodies have — like the right to be a church, or religious association as many Russian protestant groups are designated as.
Putin is an ethnic Russian and Orthodox Christian. As president under the Constitution of the Russian Federation, he is responsible to all federation citizens, and he cannot morally, ethically, and legally only do what’s best for ethnically Russian, Russian Orthodox Christians and ignore the rest of the citizenry. And the extreme right Russian ethno-nationalists and Russian National Socialists hate him for it.
There are other ethnic communities who are also Russian Orthodox Christians.
The Chabad movement was established after the First Partition of Poland in the town of Liozno, Pskov Governorate, Russian Empire (present day Liozna, Belarus), in 1775, by Rabbi Shneur Zalman of Liadi.
In 1861, Czar Alexander II the Liberator emancipated the serfs and declared everyone in the empire a full Russian citizen, including the Native tribes in Russian Alaska, particularly those who’d become Orthodox Christians throughout the 18th and 19th centuries. After Russia sold Alaska to the US in 1867, the Native Alaskan Orthodox technically became US citizens in annexed Alaska Territory, the usual international practice for centuries is that a citizen of a former territory is grandfathered in as a citizen of the new jurisdiction.
Orthodox Native Alaskans remained under the Russian Diocese of Alaska, later Archdiocese of Alaska and North America under Patriarch-Martyr Tikhon when he was bishop and archbishop to North America.
There are places in Alaska today which still look like something out of a Russian picture book.
If there is veto power from the throne, like Congress here which can override a presidential veto with two-thirds majority in both chambers, then Parliament probably has the same sort of override power, if the monarch refused to sign any legislation.
Ink from oak galls is simple and doable, for dip writing or calligraphy pens or brushes only, not fountain pens. It dates back to at least the Roman times. The Magna Carta was written in oak gall ink. Medieval manuscripts everywhere were done in oak gall ink.
It makes a lovely rich earthy, brownish or purplish black ink which has more life to it than flat, industrial black inks don’t have, but usually a little more transparent than industrial ink.
Slightly more challenging but the results are lovely, learning how to cut a quill or reed pen, and writing with that on a traditional commercial parchment paper or similar made for calligraphy. If gum arabic is used, usually about a teaspoon.
Check this out. It’s essentially the recipe I used.
Patriotic Bradlee Dean speaks through the idiom of the Bible, has a blind spot for the Jews and the Jewish state, probably a Zio-christian, Muslim-hating, zooms in on two Muslim Americans working in DHS and ignores all the Jews underfoot, but he sometimes has important general domestic and constitutional issues he calls attention to. - Kj
Department of Homeland Security Demonizes Americans Again!

“Once a government is committed to the principle of silencing the voice of opposition, it has only one way to go, and that is down the path of increasingly repressive measures, until it becomes a source of terror to all its citizens and creates a country where everyone lives in fear.” — Harry Truman
If you remember right, on October 26, 2001 the unconstitutional Patriot Act was pushed forward in spite of the fact that not one representative had an opportunity to read it. It was laid on their desks at 3:30 am.
If you also remember right, for 18 years, the American people were told by the mainstream media that the Muslims were a threat to this country at every given step.
Now, they attack Americans in defending those who are here to conquer illegally.
Truth be told, the very ones that are allowed to set the narratives here are the very ones setting up their political opposition within the borders of this country (Ephesians 4:14).
Friends, those who were originally accused for the Twin Towers coming down could have never dreamed of what it is that the American government has done to its own people to date (Leviticus 26:15-16). Therefore, America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms it will be because we destroyed ourselves (Numbers 32:23).
To add insult to lying injury after lying injury, we now have the unconstitutional Department of Homeland Security Gestapo head Alejandro Mayorkas [Cuban Jew-Kj] , and right on que, accusing the American people of being the “domestic extremists.”
We all saw this right after the 72 definitions from the DHS came out publicly (Revelation 12:10). (Embedded video.)
MSNBC recently highlighted Mayorkas saying, “The threat landscape has evolved considerably over the last 20 years,” and that foreign terrorism has now taken a back seat to domestic extremism.
“We are seeing an emerging threat, of course, over the last several years of the domestic violent extremist,” said the DHS chief.
“The individual here in the United States radicalized to violence by a foreign terrorist ideology, but also an ideology of hate, anti-government sentiment, false narratives propagated on online platforms, even personal grievances,” he added.
As Chris Menahan highlights, Mayorkas has wielded a pretty broad brush when it comes to defining what behavior qualifies as ‘domestic extremism’.
“Mayorkas said last year that white extremists are the greatest threat to America and put out terror alerts painting opponents of covid lockdowns and people who don’t trust the Biden regime as potential domestic terrorists.”

A Message from Twilio CEO Jeff Lawson (excerpt)
“As you all know, we are committed to becoming an Anti-Racist/Anti-Oppression company. Layoffs like this can have a more pronounced impact on marginalized communities, so we were particularly focused on ensuring our layoffs – while a business necessity today – were carried out through an Anti-Racist/Anti-Oppression lens.”
It used to be the junior personnel across the board were axed first for layoffs.
Now its on a racist hierarchy of “racial equity and justice” priorities.
Originally published in 2013 during the Obama administration, of which Joe Stolen is simply the front for Obama’s third term from behind the scenes.
The racist, anti-Christan Woke Left Judeo-commie creeping persecution and suppression of mostly White Christians is only becoming more intense as the growing internal security state tightens up the totalitarian screws.
This list was originally published in 2013 by Michael Snyder, with activist school parents added to the list sharing number 1 place.
Are you a conservative, a libertarian, a Christian or a gun owner?
Are you opposed to abortion, globalism, Communism, illegal immigration, the United Nations or the New World Order?
Do you believe in conspiracy theories, do you believe that we are living in the “end times” or do you ever visit alternative news websites (such as this one)?
If you answered yes to any of those questions, you are a “potential terrorist” according to official U.S. government documents. At one time, the term “terrorist” was used very narrowly. The government applied that label to people like Osama bin Laden and other Islamic jihadists.
But now the Obama administration (Biden facade) is removing all references to Islam from terror training materials, and instead the term “terrorist” is being applied to large groups of American citizens.
And if you are a “terrorist”, that means that you have no rights and the government can treat you just like it treats the terrorists that are being held at Guantanamo Bay. So if you belong to a group of people that is now being referred to as “potential terrorists”, please don’t take it as a joke.
The first step to persecuting any group of people is to demonize them. And right now large groups of peaceful, law-abiding citizens are being ruthlessly demonized.
Below is a list of 72 types of Americans that are considered to be “extremists” and “potential terrorists” in official U.S. government documents. To see the original source document for each point, just click on the link. As you can see, this list covers most of the country…

We are moving into a very dangerous time in American history. You can now be considered a “potential terrorist” just because of your religious or political beliefs.
Free speech is becoming a thing of the past, and we are rapidly becoming an Orwellian society that is the exact opposite of what our founding fathers intended.
Department of Defense equity chief goes dark on social media after Fox News Digital report on anti-White posts
The [Black-Kj] diversity chief at the Department of Defense said, ‘If another Karen tells me about her feelings… I might lose it’
14 September, 2022
A diversity chief at the Department of Defense’s education wing went dark on social media after Fox News Digital found that she posted disparaging posts about White people on Twitter.
The chief diversity, equity and inclusion officer at the Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA), Kelisa Wing, described herself on Twitter as a “woke administrator.” Fox News Digital reported that Wing published tweets calling White people “Karens,” a derogatory word.
Wing’s Twitter account was put on private and her LinkedIn account appeared to be deleted. Fox News Digital previously downloaded a copy of her account profile. It indicated she worked at the DoD for 16 years and was promoted as DEI chief in December 2021.
In June 2020, Wing said, “I’m exhausted with these white folx in these [professional development] sessions.”
“[T]his lady actually had the CAUdacity to say that black people can be racist too… I had to stop the session and give Karen the BUSINESS… [W]e are not the majority, we don’t have power,” she continued. “Caudacity” is a slang term that is used to describe audacity demonstrated by White people.
On another occasion, Wing responded to a user who said, “I am exhausted by 99% of the white men in education and 95% of the white women. Where can I get a break from white nonsense for a while?”
Wing responded, “If another Karen tells me about her feelings… I might lose it…”
DoDEA “directs … education programs for school-age children of Department of Defense personnel” and “provides support and resources to Local Educational Agencies throughout the United States that serve children of military families.”
DoDEA schools are located in the U.S., Europe, Pacific, western Asia, Middle East, Cuba, Guam and Puerto Rico.
Fox News Digital reached out to the Department of Defense, asking whether there were any actions taken, but did not immediately receive a response.
Dear Passer By.
I promised this to you in August, and I hope you are reading this. Spike protein shedding from the vaccine is a real thing.
My apologies for the delay. I’m an often forgetful and absent-minded, and was distracted this past month with more personal issues than usual.
My personal situation is that I have a highly compromised immune system, extremely low natural antibodies due to a B-cell lymphoma I was treated for years ago.
Once a month, I go into the hospital or clinic for an IV of donor general antibodies (IgG) refined from blood serum. Of course, I’m surrounded by nursing staff who had to get the dzab or lose their jobs.
For a long time within a day or two, I felt a prickling like something was trying to attack my upper bronchials, which I can only assume was spike protein shedding.
Before the nursing staff got the dzabs, it was whispered to me by one nurse they were ordered to come to work if sick even with the coof, flu or colds, unless they were completely bedridden with a fever over 101 F.
Anyway, I worked out a self-defense protocol for myself using these protocols before and after I come home. Additionally, I substitute 2) capsules of black seed oil 2x a day for IVM, which also helps with my other inflammatory and chronic lung problems. I also take daily NAC, Turmeric with pepper, & Quercetin for pulmonary support.
When I come home afterwards, I drink a couple of cups of White Pine needle tea, dandelion tea, anise seed tea, star anise tea, or use any of these in combination with green tea for three or four days, both of which contain shikimic acid, which helps neutralize the spike protein, either from the dzab or the virus itself. For 3 or 4 days, I’ll drink 2-3 cups of tea a day.
I don’t live in an area which has pine trees, so I order fresh needles online, and then freeze them to make tea as needed. I pick the dandelion leaves from my lawn and dry them. Other pine, like red pine, (except Ponderosa pine and yew pine) spruce, cedar, and fir needle tea can be substituted. Don’t use cypress needles.
Pine needle tea has all kinds of health benefits.
Other herbs that contain shikimic acid are dandelion leaf tea and fennel seed tea.
Shikimic acid offers anti blood clotting activity. Shikimic acid from star anise is also the pharmaceutical basis for Tamiflu. Whole star anise has the highest % of Shikimic acid.

He later published a formal science paper about the patients he treated with his methodology. There were something like 105 patients, most of them hi-risk or with late stage Coof and pneumonia that he treated, and only 1 had to be hospitalized. All survived.
I call this the Vit D Hammer. This is my go to for any active respiratory infection (cold, flu, Coof). It’s a four-day protocol. I start it the minute I feel something trying to settle into my lungs when I’ve been around someone who is openly infectious (sneezing, coughing, etc) after trying the preventatives.
It does not take long for a respiratory infection to drive down into my chest, so I hit it with the “Hammer” right away, and it keeps it out of my chest. I’ve had 6 or 7 upper respiratory infections between December 2019 and now, and using Dr. B’s protocol I’ve just felt a little sniffly discomfort on par with a mild cold every time.

Attention Conservatives: They’re Coming For Your Podcasts Next
I & I Editorial Board
What’s scary isn’t what podcasters are saying, it’s that so many on the increasingly fascistic left are so eager to censor talk they don’t like.
Conservatives have found a way to communicate that is free from Big Tech censors. But how long will it last?
Over the weekend, the liberal Brookings Institution released what it calls “a tool to monitor political broadcasts” on increasingly popular podcasts. Why? To combat “misinformation.”
Brookings treats the growth of podcasts the way Count Floyd would describe one of his movies on the classic Monster Chiller Horror Theater sketch on SCTV. “Ooh, that’s scary, kids, scary!”
Podcasts, it warns, “played a central role in disseminating election fraud narratives in the lead up to January 6.” Scary, kids!
Podcasts “also offered a prime avenue for the spread of pandemic-related misinformation.” Very scary, kids!
What’s really got the left scared is that nobody is controlling what gets said on podcasts. ✡️Valerie Wirtschafter✡️ at Brookings laments that “despite the real-world harms caused by this misinformation and the medium’s growing reach and influence,” podcasters “can say whatever you want.”
“The nature of the RSS feed, which is open-sourced and accessible by design, represents a significant hurdle for content moderation. Although Apple can remove the RSS feed from its platform, some smaller platforms allow any content on an RSS feed to be played through their services, making it easy for listeners to access a removed podcast elsewhere.”
So, Brookings created the “Popular Political Podcast Dataset” to help out would-be censors.
Wirtschafter says that this database is just about “equipping researchers with tools to better understand and evaluate the ongoing conversations across the podcasting medium.”
And, to be sure, it is interesting to see what is on the minds of liberals and conservatives. Brookings used its tool to add up the most frequently uttered words on 79 popular political podcasts in the first week of September.
It shows that liberals remain utterly fixated on Trump – almost all of the top 10 words on liberal podcasts involved Jan. 6, the Mar-a-Lago raid, etc. Conservatives, in contrast, were talking about things like the queen, 9/11, and Joe Biden.
But make no mistake, the only reason Brookings is raising this specter of unfettered “lawful but awful” dialogue is that conservatives currently dominate the podcasting world.
Brookings’ dataset shows not only the rapid rise in the number of podcast episodes, but the fact that the vast bulk of prominent political podcast series are conservative leaning. (The chart below was pulled from the Brookings website.)
What’s more, this effort is clearly more about controlling content than researching it. All the examples Wirtschafter provides of supposedly dangerous misinformation just happen to be positions held by conservatives. And elsewhere she writes that “Due to the way podcasts are distributed … addressing the problem will require a different approach than in other sectors of the tech industry, one that combines broad infrastructure changes and a fundamental rethinking of the role of the listener in content moderation.” (emphasis added)
Just who do you think would be in charge of imposing these “broad infrastructure changes”?
This new tool comes as evidence emerges that Big Tech has been working hand-in-glove with the Biden administration to stamp out content they don’t like.
As the Heritage Foundation’s Jake Denton notes, “the past few weeks of whistleblowers and court discovery have revealed evidence of the Biden administration’s deliberate weaponization of the power of Big Tech.”
Among the revelations:
>More than 45 Biden officials communicated with social media platforms about “misinformation.”
>Emails showing Facebook employees taking direct orders from government officials on which Facebook accounts to act against.
>Twitter suspended a New York Times reporter after White House officials explicitly requested his removal because his COVID tweets weren’t in keeping with official dogma. (Twitter later reinstated his tweeting privileges.)
So, don’t be at all surprised if you start to hear more calls to cancel conservative podcasts, or learn that Biden administration officials are “working with” tech firms to stop podcasters’ ability to spread “misinformation.”
What’s really very scary, kids, isn’t what podcasters are saying, it’s that so many on the increasingly fascistic left are now so eager to censor talk they don’t like.

Ian Blackford, Leader of the Scottish National Party (SNP) in the House of Commons, hails ‘Queen of Scots’ in touching tribute to Elizabeth II
‘For many of us in Scotland, she was Elizabeth, Queen of Scots’
Sep 9, 2022
Ian Blackford has hailed the relationship between the Queen and Scotland as “one of shared admiration,” as MPs marked the life of the country’s longest-reigning sovereign.
The SNP leader at Westminster was among the first speakers in a special Commons session that will run for around ten hours.
MPs from all parties will wait in turn to for the chance to pay tribute to Elizabeth II, who died aged 96 at Balmoral Castle yesterday.
Blackford spoke of the Queen’s love of her rural estate in Aberdeenshire and her fondness for all things Scottish.
The queue of mourners waiting to pay last respects to the Queen resting in state inside Westminster Hall is now 5 miles long with a wait of almost 9 hours.-Kj
Ian Blackford is the head of the Scottish National Party, devoted to regaining Scottish independence.
Ian Blackford tribute to Queen Elizabeth II: ‘For many of us in Scotland, she was Elizabeth, Queen of Scots’
Politics Home | 14 September 2022
Ian Blackford MP
In my experience of Westminster Parliament, there are only two events which see it truly unite in common voice and spirit. The first is an event of historic magnitude and the second is the loss of a person who embodied an era.
The death of Queen Elizabeth II very uniquely represents both of those events. The last number of days have seen a moment of strange intimacy for a person we all had a sense of knowing throughout our adult lives. However, it has equally been a moment of deep understanding that the passing of this one life also marks the end of an age.
The powerful tributes in the Houses of Commons last Friday echoed the united sentiments of people throughout these islands. Whether a supporter of monarchy or not, the passing of this remarkable woman is worthy of the sorrow and the significance it has been publicly met with.
A life of dignity and duty is worthy of the warmth which has been the very natural response to the memory of her seven decades at the pinnacle of public life.
There were few individuals, let alone heads of state, who experienced the sheer scale of history that unfolded during her time. Through war and peace, through boom and bust, through the advances in technology and communication and up to the dawn of the internet age, to many, she was their constant through change.
She was their ever-present figure as she bore witness to the evolution of these islands into the modern era. A thread of continuity running through the fabric of the Commonwealth – at once tying societies to our shared histories while making new history.
It is very difficult to overstate that source of stability through the turbulence of modern life.
For those of us in Scotland, the relationship between our nation and the Queen was one of shared admiration. The thousands upon thousands who stood by country lanes, village paths, motorways overpasses and the Royal Mile itself, as her coffin made its way to Edinburgh from the Highlands, was a public and personal demonstration of the genuine affection in which she was held by our people. That affection will endure.
It is right that these islands collectively give her the fondest of farewells
As I said last week, while she was everyone’s Queen, for many of us in Scotland, she was Elizabeth, Queen of Scots.
That she found her final rest in Scotland was both poignant and somehow deeply appropriate. It was clear that since her childhood, her beloved Balmoral has been a place of peace and rest for her throughout her life and, perhaps particularly so, following the death of her husband, life companion and love, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.
The Highlands are the essence of what we often casually refer to as the “great outdoors”. And it was there, surrounded by her family, her dogs, her horses and the beautiful wilderness of that place, that she was truly free to be at ease.
Balmoral was a place of silence and sanctuary for her and it is fitting that it was there that she went to her peace.
In the coming days, it is right that these islands collectively give her the fondest of farewells and offer our sympathies to all of her family. Hers was the longest of reigns, a life remarkably well lived and a legacy that will last.
May she now rest, eternally, in peace.
Ian Blackford is the SNP’s Westminster Leader
The Queen’s coffin enters Westminster Hall in London as the choir of Westminster Abbey and the choir of His Majesty’s Chapel Royal, St James’s Palace, chant Psalm 139 for the Vigil Service for HRH Queen Elizabeth II.
The service was attended by members of the Royal Family.
PSALM 139 CHANT BY Choir of Westminster Abbey (with captions)
It is divided into four stanzas of six verses each. Verses 1-6 deal with the omniscience of God; verses 7-12 speak of His omnipresence; verses 13-18 deal with His omnipotence, and then verses 19-24 deal with the prayer of David.
Many scholars such as Rogers and others believe that David composed this Psalm when a shepherd boy. It is not difficult to envision David watching over his flock in the wilderness thinking of God’s omniscience, omnipresence and omnipotence and penning these beautiful words.
The Way It Was Used by God’s People
It was used primarily in private devotions and was repeated every morning and evening by the devout Israelite. It was also used for public worship as aforementioned.
Yours is a noble cause. I too am a pretend Rabbi with honorary degree in Talmudic Studies from Yeshiva Goiiheem, a pretend university.
Rabbi Witz was recently awarded his Doctorate there.
It is difficult I know, but, we must suffer in silence nevertheless.
Queen Elizabeth II was 1 of the 3 major shareholder along with Queen Beatrix of Netherlands & the Rothschilds in Shell Petroleum.
Ultimately, Queen Elizabeth II was speculated to be the richest woman in the world. Assuming of course that the Rothschild’s particular main fortunes are never in the ownership of any 1 female of their clan.
Shell Petroleum’s private army commanded by retired British SAS rape-murdered Gadaffi of Libya. Hibernian gleaned that info not from any historian.
Whilst I perceive that eulogizing Queen Elizabeth II is wrong — & it does beg the question ‘”Can anyone who has done so in this discussion rightfully claim to have known her personally or “know any person very close to the British Royal Family”?‘ because maybe Hibernian can — there should at least be accommodation for balance.
Here Mr. E Michael Jones, as yet another of Brother Nathanael’s interviewees, is exposing some of Queen Elizabeth’s sins of omission & commission;
About half of the posters commenting under the article are supportive of the bi-racial (Irish & German) E Michael Jone’s Catholic view against the British Royal family since Henry VIII & against the British Empire.
And, here is some of Queen Elizabeth II’s official legacy for “LGBT & what-have-you” further cultural corruption upon society.
“If Princess Diana — original wife of now King Charles III — was assassinated, who do you think would have ordered the hit?”
I get the feeling you are fishing for something for a vendetta of your own against what, the defunct British Empire?
The usual implication is that the British royal family was somehow involved in Princess Diana’s death.
However, here is my reply.
This is all very fresh to me. At the time of Princess Diana’s accident, I was living off the grid in the backwoods of the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range in Northern California, some 5 miles away from the local town which then had a population of 250 people.
Once or twice a week I went to a neighbor’s llama ranch about a mile away to watch the evening news with her after dinner. I recall that there were only 3 or 4 channels she could get on local TV broadcast reception with rabbit ears antennae (but I date myself), and every night she turned on the generator to get her 60 minutes of evening news and watch a couple of her favorite TV programs after. And that’s when I learned about Princess Diana’s accident.
There were several more times her accident was in the news, cameos about her life, interviews of the royal family and others, and later clips from Princess Diana’s funeral. And that was the extent of my interest in Princess Diana’s horrible accident after it all passed out of the news cycle.
By the time I moved out of the mountains in 2001, the whole story had long-vanished from the public eye, and I didn’t give it a thought since.
To deal with your question, this is the first time I’ve ever looked into the circumstances Princess Diana’s death, and bumped into some of the old conspiracy theories.
Anyway, the short answer is that this was not an intentional homicide orchestrated by anyone simply because there was way too much left to chance for the accident to be deliberately and elaborately staged to cover an alleged assassination plot.
I’ve gone through what’s published of the accident reports, the different investigations and coroners’ inquests over the years, and no, I absolutely do not believe that this was some sort of elaborate assassination or murder, and I won’t feed what you want in the way of speculations.
Despite what you may have seen on TV crime shows, the real world doesn’t hinge on “one piece of evidence.” And a lot of people who claim they are witnesses to an accident, really aren’t. That is, they may arrive on an accident scene just after it happened, but they didn’t actually see the accident itself. They saw the aftermath, but that doesn’t make them witnesses.
Judges and juries are shown a lot of what investigators find. Investigators find huge amounts of stuff, and think carefully (based on large teams of certified traffic collision investigators with years of training and experience) before coming to conclusions.
The British coroner’s inquest in 2008, I believe it was, was a juried inquest, similar in function to a grand jury in the US, to determine the cause(s) of death, following some 10 years after the French police investigation.
The coroner’s inquest jury examined every aspect of the case for almost 6 months including the first French reports and traffic collision investigation generated at the time, hundreds of pages, at least, including the numerous allegations that arose in the aftermath, especially from billionaire Mohamed Al-Fayed, Dodi’s father, that were filed and compiled, too.
Traffic collision reconstruction for forensic accident investigations is a real methodical science for investigating, analyzing, and drawing conclusions about the causes and events during a vehicle collision.
Reconstructionists conduct collision analysis and reconstruction to identify the cause of a collision and contributing factors including the role of the driver(s), vehicle(s), roadway and general environment.
Practical and mechanical physics and engineering principles are the basis for these analyses and may involved the use of software for calculations and simulations, which can further be translated into 3D reconstructions.
For an accident like this with multiple contributing factors involved in Princess Diana and two others’ deaths, the French police have well-qualified traffic collision investigation specialists. Given its high-profile nature, would require a good sized, senior expert team for the investigation, not the least of which would be specialists going over every square inch of that part of the tunnel for physical evidence and clues for the reconstruction.
There are people out there who, not having seen the evidence themselves, would prefer to pin this on Prince Phillip, or MI5 or MI6, or the Jews. I’m sure that there are people out there who would like to pin it on Trump or Hillary. When all else fails, blame Putin/Russia, Britain’s eternal punching bag. If there was some way for 10 Downing Street to blame Princess Diana’s accident on Russia, they would.
But there is not one shred of forensic evidence that the Royal Family or the British government or anyone else was involved in Princess Diana’s death with the motive, means and intent to kill her, not one particle in 25 years. If someone was going to use a vehicle to assassinate Diana, they would use the simplest plan possible.
The only anomalous and initially suspicious circumstances to me at first, was why it took so long for the paramedics to get the Princess to the hospital. It turns out that the French paramedics did everything proper according to France’s own official emergency medical services protocols, even if it all was not the protocols that American or British or other European EMS that I’m familiar with.
Princess Diana had massive injuries to her right side, and especially grievous blunt force trauma to her heart and supporting connective tissues. Outwardly, because of the sideways angle she was sitting in the right rear seat, perhaps to better look out the rear window watching for paparazzi chasing the car, nearly all of her injuries, broken bones and such, were sustained on the right side of her body from the force of the collision.
It took about 30 minutes just to extract Princess Diana from the crushed up Mercedes, as I recall. I didn’t study the timeline.
And, the autopsy revealed that the force was such that it ruptured a major cardiac vein, the vena cava I believe, which was slowly bleeding out internally. Additionally, due to the angle of the impact because of the way she was sitting sideways to the force of impact, it sheered the heart from the connecting tissues which anchor the heart in the thoracic cavity, literally hanging loose. While lying on the gurney, her heart would roll into the right pleural cavity and put pressure on the right lung, and she would go into cardiac distress/arrest.
As soon as she did, the paramedic van, essentially a mini-hospital on wheels complete with MDs, would stop to stabilize her, which included resuscitation efforts, per the French procedures. The priority is to stabilize the patient before getting to the hospital, even if it means stopping, as top-level French emergency medical vans are rolling emergency rooms dispatched with doctors on board to life-threatening emergencies. After several times of this, and trying different postures, they finally propped her up sitting upright, and delivered her to the hospital, taking quite awhile because of all the stops to stabilize her condition again.
There was maybe a 50/50 chance of saving her life if French procedures were different that allowed them to “scoop and go” to get her to a trauma center within 5 or 10 minutes with a thoracic trauma surgeon to crack her chest for an exploratory to assess the injuries.
The driver was over the legal limit for blood alcohol and on prescription drugs, and was driving too fast.
Neither he nor Dodi Fayed, nor Diana, Princess of Wales were wearing seat belts.
It was stated at the coroner’s inquest that Diana would probably have survived had she cared to put her seat belt on.
Why would the Royal Family wish to kill her - she had already done all the damage that she could much earlier. She and Charles finally divorced in 1996 after a publicly acrimonious and dysfunctional few years, and the royal family, which she remained a part of because of her and Charles’ two boys, 3rd and 4th in the line of succession, was adjusting to the royal family’s “new normal,” determined to putting it all behind them.
Both Diane and Charles went on with their new lives after the divorce, and the child custody issues worked out, and Diane remained in contact with the rest of the royal family because of the boys, who loved visiting their grandparents.
The sheer improbability that you would arrange an elaborate assassination to take place in precisely the manner of the collision that killed Princess Diana in a highly choreographed plot would be simply thwarted by:
(i) the victim putting on a seat belt, OR
(ii) not sitting sideways in the back seat, OR
(ii) the couple sticking with their initial dinner and evening plans to stay at the Ritz, and not making a last minute switch to escape paparazzi who showed up to harass them, OR
(iii) heavier traffic on the streets of Paris, OR
(iv) missing the white Fiat in the right lane at the entrance of the underpass; OR
(v) the deputy head of security at the Ritz (owned by Doda’s father), Henri Paul, who thinking he had the rest of the night off, when abruptly called back to duty, telling his boss ‘get one of the drivers to drive, that’s their job, not mine, and besides, I’m over the limit’, OR
(vi) Henri Paul not drink anything alcoholic that night, OR
(vii) the driver not racing along at twice the posted speed limit trying to outrun a gang of paparazzi (for that matter, the papparazi would also have to be in on the plot), OR
(viii) not striking the left rear quarter panel of the white Fiat it was passing driving in the right hand lane of the roadway which caused Paul to lose control, become airborne and lose traction, land out of control swerving to the left of the two-lane roadway to collide with the thirteenth pillar in the median that supported the roof of the underpass for lack of guard rails, OR
(ix) the car landing two feet to the left or four foot to the right of the pillar it struck as it briefly became airborne after striking the Fiat, OR
(x) the Mercedez striking the pillar at a different angle than the unusual frontal angle colliding at the front right corner of the vehicle, not head on, and not on the side, OR
(xi) paramedics choosing to head straight to hospital while the patient was conscious rather than trying to stabilise her at the scene (per official French paramedic policies and procedures)
…isn’t much of an assassination plot, if just one of the above variables could derail the entire alleged elaborate scheme.

Tom, “money” is a magical tool of alchemy and will disappear soon.
The World Wars were conceived as a reliable method of bloodshed.
The sole purpose of the world wars was the faulty foundation of “Israel”.
The thing I admired most about Queen Elizabeth is that she and Phillip took part in one of the last legal Indian tiger shoots on elephant back.
I always wanted to hunt tigers on elephant back but was born to late. If you google Getty images you can see photos of the hunt. Philip potted a tiger.
I did take part in many lion hunts but these were on foot or by canoe. In order to scratch my itch I looked into importing trained Indian elephants from Thailand to Tanzania.
The teak industry had just died and bargain basement elephants were available for $5,000 a pop, wheras a Toyota land Cruiser cost $50,000. The other advantage is they eat grass which costs nothing so it save you gasoline and diesel fuel costs.
The idea was to shoot lions from elephant back and while you can train African elephants, the Indian versions from Thailand were pre-trained and came with mahouts or handlers.
I began work with the Thai government to do this and thing were going well, but I finally decided against it because I worried that the Asian elephants might carry some kind of disease that would spread to the wild African elephants. At one time my hunting block abutted the largest population of elephants in Africa - the Selous Game Reserve.
The Queen was very familiar with tiger hunting. The night her father died, she was at Treetops Lodge in Kenya so she ascended to the viewing platform as a princess and descended in the morning as Queen of England because her father had died during the night.
Her host at Treetops Lodge was Jim Corbett, the most famous hunter of man-eating tigers who ever lived. Corbett’s book “The Man-eaters of Kumoan” in my opinion is the most interesting hunting book ever written. Its still available on the internet. Even people who don’t hunt would like it.
Corbett shot one tigress that ate more than 400 people and a leopard that did the same. By comparison the most people any human serial killer (with the exception of military dictators) has ever killed was about 300.
Corbett left India after independence and moved to Kenya, which was still a British colony, where he became part owner of a safari company. He brought David Ommaney from India, who was also born in Kamaon, India, to Kenya to work for him as a professional hunter.
I knew David as I often met him in Dar es Salaam. David was the first person to test the .458 Winchester magnum on dangerous game including lions for the Winchester company. He was in many of their ads and a very nice man, a real gentleman.
We had a range of hills called the pyramids in common. They are located west of Arusha. I got my best leopard ever there and David got ripped to shreds by another leopard in those hills.
They are not the green hills of Africa but they are the blue hills just before the sun goes down.
Your words are true, rebbe. Very true…. Oy gevalt!
How the goyim suffer is as nothing compared to the suffering of jews. Like comparing a paper cut to open heart surgery… without anesthesia.
And how the jews suffer is as nothing compared to the suffering of rabbis.
I think that someone, perhaps the Englishman who posts here, shoud nominate the Queen for the Guiness Book of World Records in the category, the world’s foremost ribbon cutter.
Nobody who ever lived has ever cut more ribbons than QE2. She must have had very srtrong wrists, and in terms of ribbon cutting endurance rivaled Hussein Bolt.
Bolt would surely fall by the wayside in the category of ribbon cutting if set in a grudge matchg against QE2.
In addtion, she probably wrung the necks of more wounded pheasants than anyone else ever has who ever attended a pheasant shoot at Balmoral in Scotland or who has ever lived.
Balmoral was designed for shooting up the British countryside be it red grouse, pheasants or red deer. That was the charm of the place that the Queen loved. It was the English version of shooting up the countryside in India in which she also partook.
American Bolshevik Nightmare: Mike Lindell Waylaid by Feds, Phones Stolen
Andrew Anglin • September 15, 2022
Unfortunately for everyone, all of that stuff I said was going to happen is now happening. You’ll remember that I said all the way back in 2020 that:
>The Democrats were going to steal the election if mass mail-in balloting was allowed
>The Democrats would prosecute Donald Trump
>The Democrats would abolish law and order
>The Democrats would start a war with Russia
>The Democrats would go full-Bolshevik and start intimidating, raiding, and ultimately just arresting the opposition
I said it, point by point, because it was completely obvious to me how this would all unfold. I don’t know why it wasn’t obvious to everyone if it was obvious to me.
It’s unclear why I am so on the ball. I don’t really feel like I’m special. But here we are – it’s all coming down.
After the FBI raid on Trump’s Florida home, a Congressman was waylaid by the FBI while on vacation with his family. Then, Joe Biden gave a speech declaring that he was a dictator, and would crush Trump supporters who he claims are trying to overthrow our democracy (our values).
Shortly thereafter, between 35 and 50 high profile Trump supporters were raided and/or subpoenaed.
This week, we found out that Trump’s PAC is under investigation for – you know, for whatever – they’re not really even trying to explain it. The media is just acting like this is all normal. It’s possible that the Trump supporters who were raided were raided in relation to the Trump PAC investigation, but Trump was raided for some confounding thing about secret documents, and the Congressman was raided over January 6.
Furthermore, Tucker Carlson revealed on Monday that he’d obtained a subpoena sent to some Trump allies that says the FBI is investigating people saying that the Justice Department is investigating people for saying that the President or Vice President can “overturn the results of an election.”
(To be clear, what the above tweeter wrote implies Tucker was subpoenaed, which is not what happened. He received a copy of a subpoena sent to other people. He worded it in an awkward way, and I’ve seen a lot of people saying Tucker was subpoenaed, but that’s not what he’s saying in that segment.)
Tucker quotes the document as saying they are investigating “any claim that the Vice President and/or the President of the Senate had the authority to reject or choose not to count presidential electors.”
So we’re already at the level of “investigated for making a claim.”
And that’s what Joe Biden said in his speech – he said that any speech questioning the sanctity of elections is a threat to democracy. Democracy is the god we worship.
Frankly, it’s not even worth it to try to keep any of these explanations for the criminalization of the opposition straight. Someone might think that they are using various excuses because they are trying to exploit legal loopholes, but they don’t care about that. Biden already said he’s dictator and will do whatever he wants to stop the Republican threat to democracy values and who we are. That brutal Jew that runs the DOJ is not concerned about law-breaking. There is no law. That’s all gone now. The reason they are giving all of these different explanations for why they are doing these raids is just to dazzle the public.
It’s total Bolshevism. They will do anything they want to their enemies or perceived enemies, and then give any explanation for it. The details of their claims against you are of zero relevance.
Making a claim about elections
These are all now reasons that the FBI can raid you if you are a Trump supporter. That list is just getting started. They will start raiding people for being pro-Russia.
After all this, we’re now finding out that Mike Lindell, the MyPillow Guy, was ambushed by feds at a fast food restaurant – also while on vacation. Note that this method of raiding people when they are on vacation is purposeful – it sends a message that they are tracking you everywhere you go.
During a stream on Tuesday night, Lindell said that while in the parking lot of a Hardy’s in Mankato, Minnesota, “cars pulled up in front of us, to the side of us, and behind us, and I said, ‘Those are either bad guys or the FBI.’ It turns out they were the FBI.”
He explained that they had a warrant for the arrest of his cellphone. His lawyer told him to give up the phone. He said they told him not to tell anybody.
What did he do?
No one knows.
That Democrat spam account that is always at the top of Twitter searches is saying that Lindell deserves to be investigated for saying the election was fake.
That’s the narrative, and it’s on its way to being fully normalized. That is the real narrative they are pushing. They are going to say that no one is allowed to question elections, because it undermines democracy. Remember, in Biden’s Red Sermon, he said that questioning elections is a form of violent terrorism.
On Monday, Tucker Carlson had on some woman who was raided by the feds – who were claiming to have gotten an anonymous tip claiming she was in the Capitol on January 6.

There was no anonymous tip. They are just doing this now – they are raiding people who post on Facebook that Trump won. No one knows how many people this is already happening to. Most people bend to the fear that the FBI creates. A lot of people talk a lot of shit on the internet, but when the FBI shows up at their door, their priorities suddenly shift.
There are layers to this.
Several different things are happening:
Most obviously, the Democrats can’t win elections, so they have to arrest people for questioning elections.
Furthermore, the economy is collapsing, so they have to implement a police state to keep people from protesting when they don’t have enough money for food.
The world war is going to lead to various forms of instability.
Everything needs to be totally locked down, and everyone who would be inclined to resist needs to be prevented from doing so.
They are going to start raiding people to grab their guns.
It’s all happening.
There are no brakes on this Train to Hell.
The coronavirus lockdowns were a test, and the goyim failed with flying colors. The masses of Americans will do literally anything the government tells them to do on the dumbest possible pretexts. They now know they can do anything to you, so they’re going to do just that.
It’s happening now. The raids have begun. This isn’t going to slow down until it crashes.
No one knows how bad it will get or how long it will last, but eventually, things will turn around. You can’t base an entire society on ridiculous lies and have it be indefinitely sustainable. Eventually, it will fall apart.
The first thing that you need to do, dear reader, is understand that this is happening. We’ve passed “going to happen,” and are now inside of “already happening.”

For the record Ted G, there is only one person I would be prepared to nominate.
That is for the selfless sacrifice being conducted by +BN in order to warn the Dim and the Dumb about the fate that awaits them from the unbaptized in the Tribe he was born into.
Not forgetting the Lord’s gift to him our “Queen” here at RJN.
The side of our Queen Elizabeth you mention may surprise those unaware.
We must believe, generally, Aristocracy does possess a ruthless streak (English Barons did not last long without it)
My parents loved and respected the Queen & Duke.
I tend to judge others in comparison to myself, as a youth I shot deer and pigeons plaguing my flower and strawberry crops, never enjoying it, it was something I had to do. After fifteen years I stopped, I’d had enough, lost the stomach for “Dispatching” anything. Haven’t shot anything in 40 years.
My point being, I find it disconcerting that Royals are ever mindful of setting a good example, should indulge themselves in such an unnecessary “sport”.
The antiquated German movie about the Rothschild’s banking conglomerate was excellent. Much was captured about important behavior, which is elsewhere ignored.
For example: the scene where the agents file in, stooping before Nathan and bowing like slavish, whipped, domesticated lapdogs, comes to mind.
Nathan is powerful name - and if presidents and prime ministers can grovel, so should everyone else (if so diplomatically inclined).
However, excessive stooping and genuflecting can become a source of cultural rot, and may thereby promote unquestioning conduct which is rarely (if ever) conducive to a good outcome.
Anyway, are there more good sources of information about the Rothscritters?
Dear Mental Decay Bro,
It’s not about Rothschilds, but these two may be of interest for the advancement of Yidology to compare & contrast between two versions of character portrayals of the same story — Jude Süss.
In their historical context, it appears that they were respectively produced as propaganda against early NS Germany produced for a British audience, and counter-propaganda by the NS Government to refute the first movie several years later.
In short, a clear example of cinema propaganda war between Philosemite political partisanship and Antisemite political partisanship.
The first version is the 1934 Jew Süss which was directed and produced by a German Jew who migrated to Britain, designed to put Jews in the best light for British audiences and to please the British Jews.
Wikipedia gives the subversive game away:
Jew Süss is a 1934 British historical romantic drama film based on Lion Feuchtwanger’s 1925 novel Jud Süß, about Joseph Süß Oppenheimer.
Directed by Lothar Mendes [Jew-Kj], the film stars German actor Conrad Veidt in the role of Oppenheimer. The screenplay was written by Dorothy Farnum and Arthur Rawlinson.
Unlike the Nazis’ antisemitic film Jud Süß (1940), the British film was intended to be sympathetic to Jews, and is generally considered to be a faithful adaptation of Feuchtwanger’s novel.
It was hoped the historical analogy, condemning antisemitism in 1730, would be a successful means of evading the ban by the British censors on political topics in films.
The later film with the same title, produced in Nazi Germany, is considered by some to be an antisemitic response to Mendes’ philo-semitic film. — Jew_Süss_(1934_film)
Be sure to read BFI’s uploader notes, too. This video was released in the US after its British debut, retitled as “Power”.
British Film Industry Archives
From International Historic Films DVD notes:
“Joseph Goebbels’ Malevolent Masterpiece. Directed by Veit Harlan.
Long recognized as history’s most incendiary film, Jud Süss was the cultural centerpiece in Joseph Goebbels’ campaign against the Jews.
Released in 1940, it was a box office sensation across Germany and Europe; alongside the movie’s theatrical distribution, it became a staple of Nazi propaganda evenings organized by the Hitler Youth, SS, and others.
At once a rousing melodrama and murderous antisemitic incitement, the movie draws loosely from historical events from the early eighteenth century, when “Jud Süss” Oppenheimer, financial advisor to the Duke of Württemberg, was subjected to a sensational trial and gruesome execution.
The film depicts Süss as a figure of cynical cunning and malign will, a sexual predator sowing corruption everywhere; his promotion of Jewish emancipation brings Christian Württemberg to the brink of moral and social ruination.
That these qualities are conveyed through Ferdinand Marian’s stunningly charismatic performance as Süss suggests something of the film’s disturbing power – even as it acknowledges Jewish misery, Jud Süss argues for still more lethal, pitiless solutions to the “Jewish question.”
A key historical document of the twentieth century, Jud Süss remains a deeply unsettling cinematic experience. Directed by Veit Harlan; music by Wolfgang Zeller; featuring Ferdinand Marian, Werner Krauss, Heinrich George, and Kristina Söderbaum.”

Has the Government Turned Against You? - News Update
JP Sears | 15 September 2022
Dear The Englishman,
I must compliment the staid British people and their proverbial patience, good manners and humor, courtesy, and respectful demeanor.
Nobody does royal events, crowds in the ten thousands, and queues like the British, especially for big, historical moments, like a 5-mile long, 24-hour queues just to spend 30 seconds paying respects to the Queen as she lies in state.
I’m only aware of just a few public disturbance incidents by protesters and/or nuts over the past week in Scotland and in England. Of course, I’m aware that there’s tight control on what’s being broadcast and not much in the way of disturbance gets through, but still, you all are impressive.
If there was something like this here in the US on this grand scale, BLM & Antifa terrorists would burn Chicago, LA, San Francisco, Milwaukee, Detroit, Portland and Seattle would be burned to the ground by now. - Kj
Peak mockery of Our Democracy™.
The Atlantic called this “a sadistic immigration stunt”.
In the meantime, because of cost of living hikes, approximately 15% of the US active-duty military families are facing food insecurity, and were told by the Pentagon to get on food stamps. - Kj
Tucker Carlson: This will destroy the US over time
Premiered Sep 15, 2022 Fox News host Tucker Carlson reacts to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis sending migrants to Martha’s Vineyard on ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight.
Best YT comment:
“Tucker’s back-handed patronizing and condescension is the best I’ve ever seen. His exploitation of liberal idiocy in broad day has me gut laughing. This is Tucker’s best I’ve ever seen. He drove these points home better than I’ve ever seen.
“I hope Martha’s Vineyard continues to be enriched with more migrants and an ever increasing opportunity to help these people as they are the direct result of their idiotic policies.”
Tucker Carlson: Is anyone noticing this?
Sep 16, 2022 Fox News host Tucker Carlson calls out Democrats for not welcoming the illegal migrants on to Martha’s Vineyard on ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight.’
Many estates in Scotland could not survive without their deer stalking, red grouse, and pheasant shooting income. Stop it and you will have a lot more castles without roofs to avoid having to pay taxes.
I once attended a pheasant shoot in Scotland as an observer. I did get one shot at a bird and missed. They come in quite high up.
They line up maybe a dozen shooters and beaters and dogs and men drive them towards the guns.
The shooters fire away and while each individual may know how many birds they shot, they don’t know how many the others in their party got, and that is how they get sucker punched when it comes time to pay the estate owner.
At the end of the day the birds are gathered together and paid for.
The shooters don’t realize that they are paying for a lot of birds that they didn’t shoot because the dogs in the drive catch many pheasants as they run along the ground. They are still alive when the dogs hand them over to their masters, so I am sure the Queen’s neck wringing was not a one off thing, but rather a habit.
Apparently Princess Diana was quite upset because her boys got obsessed with shooting up the countryside at Balmoral. Megan Markle seems to have beaten the shooting habit out of poor old brow-beaten Harry.
At least he can wear a kilt and that keeps Megan from saying she wears the pants in the family.
Harry’s former girl friend from Zimbabwe, whose name I think was Chelsea Davey, had a father I believe named Charles Davey, who owned a hunting safari company in Zimbabwe. She was a real outdoor girl.
I am sure that had Harry married her, he would be hunting elephants nowadays and not just the pheasants of his youth. Much different peer pressure from a Zimbabwe family than what he would get from Megan in Hollywood.
I am sure that by now Harry regrets ditching Chelsea Davey her for Megan. I saw Megan interview Venus Williams the other day on Australian TV. What a pair of dumb and narcissistic women. Just awful to watch. Made my skin crawl.
Poor old Harry. Now that he has had kids with Megan he has to mind his Ps and Q s and bite the bullet, but I am sure that he knows by now that he has made a huge mistake.
It’s only a matter of time before a Christine Keeler, Mandy Rice Daves, or Ghislane Maxwell notices the strained look on his face and targets him on behalf of the Mossad like they had already done with Phil the Greek and Randy Andy.
That is today’s gossip column.
No prizes for working out who’s behind this subterfuge.
Tulsi Gabbard Unloads on Democratic Party for Trying to Foment ‘Civil War’ [Video]
The Liberty Beacon
September 15, 2022
Ahead of Midterms
Hawaii Dem. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, a Lieutenant Colonel who served in the Iraq War and currently a Major in the U.S. Army Reserve, called out the Democratic Party for trying to foment a ‘civil war’ by comparing its political opponents to al Qaeda jihadists on the anniversary of 9/11.
Gabbard had an important message for Americans, which she gave on “Jesse Watters Primetime.”
“I feel sick right now seeing you play these different clips,” Gabbard said. “You know, I, like so many of my fellow service members, I enlisted because of those Jihadist attacks on 9/11 to support and defend our Constitution, to protect our fellow Americans and to go after and kill those who attacked us on that day.
“And it is despicable and outrageous to hear these people, to hear these people, say the things that they’re saying, comparing our fellow Americans to terrorists — actually worse. They literally said they are worse than Al Qaeda terrorists.
“This just shows how far they are willing to go pushing our country to the brink of civil war, demonizing, targeting our fellow Americans, as worse than Al-Qaeda terrorists, all to hold onto their power,” Gabbard continued.
“That’s all they care about. Whether you’re talking about the Biden administration, these talking heads on TV, U.S. senators, the Department of Homeland Security, the people who are some of the most powerful people in our country, who have the strings of the national security apparatus at their fingertips, targeting our fellow Americans, just because they didn’t vote for Joe Biden, all because they need, they want to hold on to power.”
“This is outrageous and should be concerning to every single American,” she added. “And we’ve got to see right through what they’re doing. The timing of this is not an accident. We are just weeks away from the midterm elections.
“They are concerned that they will lose the seats that they have. And so they’re, again, not caring about the consequences and the destruction to the country and the heart of the American people, willing to foment this fear to say, ‘Hey, don’t you dare vote for these Republicans, because they voted for Trump, and they are traitors and they’re a greater threat to our country than Al Qaeda jihadists.’
As reported earlier, President Joe Biden on the 9/11 anniversary on Sunday drew a parallel between the War on Terror and the regime’s War on MAGA.
“It’s not enough to gather and remember each September 11th those we lost … because on this day, it is not about the past, it’s about the future,” Biden intoned. “We have an obligation, a duty, a responsibility, to defend, preserve and protect our democracy.”
Biden’s invocation of the duty to ‘protect our democracy’ is an allusion to the regime’s efforts to tie a few dozen violent January 6 rioters to MAGA protesters charged with federal crimes such as trespassing and parading without a permit in the capitol building.
The Biden administration is stretching this argument even further by tying January 6 rioters and the 74 million law-abiding Trump voters who cast a ballot in the 2020 election.
The solemn occasion of 9/11 anniversary was just another opportunity for the Democratic Party to cast aside all sense of dignity or propriety to smear millions of law-abiding and peace-loving Americans as a ‘threat to democracy.’
It is all the evidence that the American people need to see that the true threat to the country is actually the Democratic Party, which now needs to be removed from power before it further corrupts the U.S. government and undermines the integrity of our elections.
The clot shot — the gift that keeps on giving. - Kj
Can of worms sprung open, beans spilled as Gates exposed as primary funder of UK Healthcare Regulator
MAJOR INVESTOR IN PFIZER, MAJOR INVESTOR IN BIONTECH, PRIMARY FUNDER OF AGENCY THAT REGULATES PFIZER AND BIONTECH. NOTHING TO SEE HERE! LOOK AWAY!

Corruption: Gov. Documents prove Bill Gates is Primary Funder of UK Medicine Regulator despite owning major shares in Pfizer & BioNTech
by THE EXPOSÉ, September 15, 2022
An investigation has revealed that the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is the primary funder of the UK’s Medicine & Healthcare products Regulatory Agency, and the Foundation also owns major shares in both Pfizer and BioNTech.
The Medicine & Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) extended the emergency authorisation of the Pfizer / BioNTech mRNA jab in the UK to allow it to be given to children between the ages of 12 – 15 on the 4th June 2021.
At the time, the Chief Executive of the MHRA, Dr June Raine said the MHRA had “carefully reviewed clinical trial data in children aged 12 to 15 years and have concluded that the Pfizer vaccine is safe and effective in this age group and that the benefits outweigh any risk”.
We are left wondering if Dr June Raine and the MHRA have even read the results of the extremely short and small study. If they have then they would have seen that 86% of children in the study suffered an adverse reaction ranging from mild to extremely serious.
Just 1,127 children took part in the trial, however, only 1,097 children completed the trial, with 30 of them not participating after being given the first dose of the Pfizer jab.
The results do not state why the 30 children did not go on to complete the trial. The information is publicly available and contained within an FDA fact sheet which can be viewed here (see page 25, table 5 on-wards).
There was never any doubt that the MHRA would give emergency authorisation for the Pfizer / BioNTech vaccine to be used in children when you consider that a certain Mr Bill Gates owns shares in both Pfizer and BioNTech and is the primary funder of the MHRA.
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation bought shares in Pfizer back in 2002, and back in September 2020 Bill Gates ensured the value of his shares went up by announcing to the mainstream media in a CNBC interview that he viewed the Pfizer jab as the leader in the Covid-19 vaccine race.
“The only vaccine that, if everything went perfectly, might seek the emergency use license by the end of October, would be Pfizer.”
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation also “coincidentally” bought $55 million worth of shares in BioNTech in September 2019, just before the alleged Covid-19 pandemic struck.
The MHRA received a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in 2017 to the tune of £980,000 for a “collaboration” with the foundation.
However, a Freedom of Information request which the MHRA responded to in May 2021 revealed that the current level of grant funding received from the Gates Foundation amounts to $3 million and covers “a number of projects”.
Can we really trust the MHRA to remain impartial when its primary funder is the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, which also owns shares in Pfizer and BioNTech? We don’t think so.
Bill Gates Wants “conspiracy theories” About Him To Go Away
POLITICO: How Bill Gates Took Over the Covid Pandemic
Bill Gates took over Covid just like he took over Operating Systems
An amazing article from the least expected, mainstream source: The Politico.
The title of the article was apparently edited in a hurry post-publication because Google News still lists it as “How Bill Gates and his partners took over the global Covid response”. Here’s the archive link to the original article with “Bill Gates” in the title — proving it was later edited in a hurry.
Even the article URL lists Bill Gates:
The article would be fascinating to read for people who were not previously aware of what most of us knew already — that the so-called “pandemic response” and global health are taken over by unaccountable private interest groups serving Bill Gates.
I highly recommend that you take a look!
The story given by the article is incomplete but very interesting.
It mentions that the pandemic response was taken over by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, GAVI, CEPI, and the Wellcome Trust. All four organizations pretend to be independent, but all were financed by Bill Gates.
They participated in Event 201, planning out the pandemic, in October 2019.
“What makes Bill Gates qualified to be giving advice and advising the U.S. government on where they should be putting the tremendous resources?” asked Kate Elder, senior vaccines policy adviser for the Doctors Without Borders’ Access Campaign.
Several important items are glaringly missing from the article:
Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, along with the US government (Avril Haines representing the US intelligence community) and China CDC, planned out the pandemic in October of 2019 by means of an “exercise” called Event 201.
Sars-Cov-2 is lab engineered and was designed intentionally
As pointed out by our astute reader Mel, do not forget the 3.1 million shares of BioNTech that Gates bought in Sept 2019 for $18.10/share. That $55 million investment was worth $1.7 billion by Aug 2021.
Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation financed the organization that developed Sars-Cov-2 (EcoHealth Alliance) via grant INV-002838, and possibly more.
Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation financed University of North Carolina, where Ralph Baric developed Sars-Cov-2 for EcoHealth Alliance, via 56 grants: INV-026327 INV-030330 INV-031704 INV-028991 INV-036494 INV-032887 INV-033909 INV-036560 OPP1192462 OPP1199232 OPP1201585 OPP1203327 OPP1195157 OPP1195363 OPP1191684 OPP1061107 OPP1090837 OPP1086528 OPP1108279 OPP1107923 OPP1235 OPP3436 OPP1142921 OPP38920 OPP38381 OPP23847 OPP17809 OPP1161858 OPP1158402 OPP1154943 OPP1172799 OPP1183027 OPP1181722 INV-006232 INV-001748 INV-005277 INV-016221 INV-019193 INV-016163 INV-003112 INV-001805 INV-003266 INV-002551 OPP1203712 OPP9404 OPP1014802 OPP1015539 OPP1024615 OPP1024664 OPP1015381 OPP1018000 OPP51976 OPP53107 OPP53450 OPP52037 OPP49260
Bill Gates had close ties with Jeffrey Epstein and visited him numerous times
Nevertheless, the mere publication of this article has huge importance. The things that most of us know and talk about, are appearing in the so-called “mainstream press” — after the damage was all done, of course.
The virus was released; millions died; over a billion young people were force-vaccinated under false pretenses. When it is too late to change anything, Politico is finally stating the obvious. Still, it is better than nothing.
Almost everything in the Politico article was known a year ago. Where was Politico then? Busy taking government covid vaccine advertising money.
The pandemic was a crime, not an accident.
Will those “conservative” Swedish pols actually do anything meaningful to address their constituent’s very justifiable concerns?
I believe those of us here know the answer to that one.
Is The U.S. Heading Toward A Frightening Future?
American Family News Staff | Sep 17, 2022 | Fresh Ink |
In another troubling sign the Biden administration views distrusting American citizens as dangerous and subversive, the public learned this week the FBI has been reading private Facebook posts, and labeling the writer a domestic terrorist threat, if you questioned the 2020 presidential election.
Those comments then earned the Facebook user his or her own investigation by their own disapproving government.
In an exclusive story published this week, The New York Post quotes Department of Justice whistleblowers who describe a 19-month operation in which a Facebook employee secretly sent online messages to the FBI if the author complained about their government – specifically if they questioned if Joe Biden legally defeated Donald Trump.
The whistleblowing allegation only gets more stomach-churning from there: Those social media comments were sent straight to the FBI’s domestic terror unit headquartered in Washington, D.C.
From there that key central office forwarded the red-flagged comment to a local FBI office, where a subpoena was issued by the U.S. Attorney’s Office to read and review other messages by the author.
“They were gun-toting, red-blooded Americans [who were] angry after the election and shooting off their mouths and talking about staging protests,” a whistleblower told the Post. “There was nothing criminal, nothing about violence or massacring or assassinating anyone.”
Not one of those investigations led to an arrest of anyone for domestic terrorism, the whistleblowers advised, but every person investigated was a “right-wing” individual.
“It was done outside the legal process,” one of the DOJ sources told Post reporter Miranda Devine, “and without probable cause.”
Calls grow among prominent figures to create a new ‘Church Committee’ to probe FBI abuses
From bureau veterans to key lawmakers in Congress, the notion of an independent review is growing in urgency.
As always, I appreciate your reminisces, Ted.
I too read The Maneaters of Kumaon. What a great book. Couldn’t put it down. Same with Patterson’s book.
It was a revelation to learn how big cats, just like their smaller, lap warming cousins, are all individuals.
I would have much preferred to have met Jim Corbett than the Queen. If I’d ever met the Queen I’d have asked her about Jim Corbett, because she knew him, and not her own life.
I did manage to meet three people who knew Corbett. They were the above mentioned David Ommaney, Fred Duckworth, who like Omaney was also born in Kumaon and knew Corbett and all of his friends, and Peter Turnbull-Kemp who was a game warden in Kenya when Corbett showed up. Peter wrote a book called “The Leopard” which has been out of print for years.
I spent a week with Peter at the Rhodes Nyanga Hotel in Zimbabwe where Peter was the resident fly tyer. They have a rainbow trout hatchery there and it was quite odd to catch the same fish I used to catch in Ontario.
Peter’s impression was that Jim Corbett was a very poor man but that he really knew his stuff. Peter himself shot several man-eating hyenas in Malawi. He did so by dressing up like an old woman and walking alone down lonely jungle trails. He carried a sawed off shotgun under his clothing and when he heard the padding coming up behind him turned and shot them.
I attended a ceremony of about 350 people at a place called Boma Ulanga after the game department shot a hyena that had attacked 22 people and killed and eaten about a dozen.
My client took a picture of the hyena and I still have it.
I tried to buy the skull but the game department wouldn’t sell it to me. They said they had to burn the whole carcass including the skull to fufill some tribal ritual that pertained to the killing of a man-eater.
I believe you live in Chicago and if so you have probably visited the Field Museum and seen the stuffed man-eaters of Tsavo. The ones that shut down the railway. They had small manes. The museum specimens have lost all of their manes. I went to see them.
I read the book and there is something I don’t understand about the story, and that is the chapter about the man-eaters dragging victims to a particular cave.
I am about as familiar with man-eating lions as anyone in this day and age as they ate 53 people in my hunting block when I was there and I have never heard of such a thing.
I find Patterson’s story in that regard hard to believe, but of course I wasn’t there, so maybe its true. Patterson was considered an accurate observer of nature. Patterson’s eland, now renamed, was originally named after him.
Patterson’s story has been made into 2 or 3 Hollywood movies but I am surprised nobody has ever made a movie about the Man-eaters of Njobe. They were a whole pride of lions, not just one or two cats, and they ate between 1,500 and 3,000 human beings over a period of many years.
They killed so many people that witchcraft entered into the minds of the local Africans who were afraid to confront them.
They were killed over a period of years by George Rushby. One of the freelance hunters who worked for me knew him when he lived in Arusha but I never met him. As with Jim Corbett, I wish I had.
Ted, it’s sobering to think how a beautiful place like Africa comes with so many dangers.
An acquaintance from years ago who’d been there several times had an observation: “Africa wants to kill you.”
A girl from college I remained friends with married a German engineer and they were in Nigeria for several years. Even in Africa Whites, live well compared to Blacks. But you need to form connections with the local bigshots.
Your stories remind me of when I was a kid. Devouring everything I could about far off lands. Especially Africa. Never made it further from the US than Tijuana and the Bahamas though. You’ve lived a more interesting life than I have. Did you get to meet Marlin Perkins?
When my granddaughter comes over we spend a lot of time watching videos about Africa and other wild places. Big cats, baboons, crocodiles, everything. A chip off the old block! I’m going to have to buy or rent The Ghost and the Darkness for us to watch. She’ll love it. I did.
I lived in Chicago when I was a kid but we never made it to the Field Museum. I’m in Oklahoma these days. For what it’s worth the mask mandates didn’t fly for long here.
I like to think maybe I had a little to do with that. Unless absolutely forced to, I refused to wear one.
Yes I met Marlin Perkins
I once worked for the same company, Don Meier Productions, which was based on Michigan Ave in Chicago.
It was when I was in Chicago that I went to the Field Museum and saw the stuffed man-eating lions.
Ted, we kids all loved Wild Kingdom back in the day. Marlin was like a grandfather of sorts. Weren’t you injured working on that show?
I remember hearing about the Mfuwe maneater back in the day. He too is now a display at the Field Museum.
Gonna have to look up “the lion-men of Singida”. That one sounds very intetesting.
Now here’s a weird story. Hideous if true:
My Experience With An African Cryptid
The leopard men of Nigeria.
Of course Nigeria was a paradise of peace and love… until Whites turned up and ruined it all:
Does anyone think this is a good idea?

Male Murderer and Necrophiliac Transferred to Women’s Prison Catherine Lynn Crime Story Continue reading Male Murderer and Necrophiliac Transferred to Women’s Prison
Women Are Human | 17 September 2022
CA — Kitchener, Ontario. A male murderer, serving a life sentence for physically assaulting a woman in 1995, cutting her throat, and then sexually assaulting her dead body, has been transferred to a women’s prison.
The murderer and necrophiliac, who currently goes by the name Catherine Lynn, had previously been convicted of Assault Causing Bodily Harm in 1974, and was charged with assaulting a prostituted woman in 1993, though this latter charge was ultimately withdrawn.
Lynn spent 18 years in maximum and medium-security institutions prior to being cascaded to a minimum security institution in 2014. According to the Parole Board of Canada (PBC) Decision in April 2022, Lynn’s “institutional behaviour was marred by a number of incidents related to inappropriate sexual behaviour with others, poor conflict resolution, and inappropriate dress”.
The Parole Board of Canada Decision indicates that Lynn’s “institutional behaviour was marred by a number of incidents related to inappropriate sexual behaviour with others”, among other issues.
While in prison, Lynn has completed numerous programs, including various ones for sexual offenders, though Lynn’s ability to manage behavioural risk factors “needs some improvement”, and Lynn has “been recommended, and waitlisted, for another cycle of maintenance programming.”
Heather Mason, a former federal prisoner at Grand Valley Institution (GVI) For Women and now an advocate for women in prison, learned via a prisoner at GVI that Lynn is now housed there and that Lynn had wanted to transfer to a women’s prison “to look at how the women walked, talked, and acted.”

Yikes! Just yikes!
I was never injured while working for WK, but I saw a captive wolf severely injure Warren Garst who was the director of photography. I have seen six captive wolf attacks on people, three on myself. Fortunately Warren had a club with him and beat it off. Same with me. A club works on a single wolf but not a pack.
Stan Brock nearly lost an eye to a cheetah. It poked him in the eye with a dew claw.
I saw a coyote try to persistently bite the heck out of Marlin Perkins one time but he beat it off with a pair of hip waders.
Stan Brock took a great many risks for WK but he was super fit and could get away with it. He just died a couple of years ago from cancer at age 82 but even then, whenever he could, he worked out for four hours a day.
He knew how to vault bulls, went barefoot his whole life, worked out on the rings like a circus performer, and always slept on a hardwood floor, never in a bed.
He had cancer for about 15 years. He decided he was going to beat it with exercise and diet. No medical treatment. In 2016 he told me that he would beat it that way but it got him in the end.
I kind of feel sorry for him. He was such an extraordinary person. He wanted his ashes buried on the top of Mount Darakaban in Guyana, where I used to hunt deer, because it overlooked Dadanawa, the ranch he loved and managed for so many years.
He organized this with at least two people that I talked to, to make sure it happened, but I think he ended up getting buried in Tennessee. He will toss and turn for eternity.
I think alot of witchcraft and cryptid tales are based on people finding human remains left by wild animals. The imagination of uneducated people than runs wild. The Ngorogoro tale is nonsense. I have been there quite a few times.
For example, I believe Bigfoot and in some cases Wendigo tales are based on bears.
The northern Indians still believe in the Wendigo. I once went to the opening of a new fishing lodge just south of James Bay and when we got there we found the door of the main lodge was full of bullet holes.
The lodge owner said he had left a young Indian there over the winter to guard the place from robbers on snowmobiles from the James Bay coast.
One night something started scratching at the door and the young Indian began shooting at the door with his 30-30 until he ran out of bullets. The lodge owner found him hiding under a bed fully convinced the Wendigo was after him.
I assume it was probably a wolf or a polar bear from the coast as they commonly wander 100 miles inland and in some cases have wandered 250 miles inland. There are about 800 polar bears along the Hudson and James Bay coasts.
American Jews, Neoliberalcons, and Lefties at FP have their knickers in a bunch over this.
Sweden has always been the liberal political petri dish for culturing progressive bacteria and fungi.
Sweden has taken a sharp nationalist turn focusing on long-ignored domestic problems, like immigrant organized crime and gangs.
Hope it turns out to be an effective antibiotic.

16 September 2022
Right-Wing Bloc Wins Sweden’s Elections
Sweden’s political landscape is undergoing a seismic shift after a right-wing bloc won the country’s elections this week, narrowly defeating Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson’s center-left coalition.
The victorious bloc—composed of the Sweden Democrats and the Moderate, Liberal, and Christian Democrat parties—ultimately won three more parliamentary seats than Andersson’s coalition.
They were propelled to victory by the far-right Sweden Democrats, who secured more than one-fifth of votes and are now Sweden’s second-biggest party, despite a historically extremist reputation and neo-Nazi origins.
Negotiations are now underway to form a new center-right government that will be headed by the Moderate Party, as the bloc previously decided. But experts say the Sweden Democrats are also poised to hold greater sway in shaping the future of Swedish politics, given their clear popularity during the elections.
“Because the Sweden Democrats are so phenomenally strengthened, actually power moves not just from one side to the other side of the political divide—it moves quite significantly to the right,” said Elisabeth Braw, an FP columnist and senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute.
“It’s not clear whether they will be invited to be part of the government, but either way they would have a major role in Parliament,” she added.
As issues of gang violence and immigration dominated the election, the Sweden Democrats vowed to drastically curb immigration, rattling civil society and immigrant communities. Jimmie Akesson, the leader of the Sweden Democrats, has pledged to “make Sweden good again.”
Writing in Foreign Policy, Braw argued that the left’s negative campaigning ultimately helped catapult their opponents to victory. “Their fascist-scare rhetoric propelled the far-right Sweden Democrats to a stunning result…and helped the center-right bloc win an unexpected victory,” she wrote.
After the election results became clear, Andersson announced her resignation on Thursday. Ulf Kristersson, the leader of the Moderate Party, is now set to create the country’s new government in a lengthy process expected to take weeks.
“We have an election result, we have the mandate for change we asked for,” Kristersson said on Wednesday. “I will now begin the process of forming a new government for Sweden and all its citizens.”
From behind the FP paywall:
The Left’s Negative Campaigning Helped the Right Win in Sweden
A U.S.-style smear campaign suggesting that all conservatives condone fascism doomed the Social Democrats.
By Elisabeth Braw, a columnist at Foreign Policy and a fellow at the American Enterprise Institute.
SEPTEMBER 15, 2022, 1:53 PM
Sweden’s left-wing parties—the Social Democrats, the Greens, and the Left Party—don’t tend to admire the United States or mimic its politics. But in the campaign leading up to the country’s Sept. 11 parliamentary election, the first two parties in particular engaged in negative campaigning that would make the most experienced American mudslingers blush, consistently labeling the center-right bloc “brown.”
As every Swedish schoolchild who studied Nazi Germany knows, brown is a color associated with fascism. (The Sturmabteilung, the original Nazi paramilitary wing, was also known as Braunhemden, the brownshirts.)
The smearing almost worked. Instead, their fascist-scare rhetoric propelled the far-right Sweden Democrats to a stunning result—taking nearly 21 percent of the vote and becoming the country’s second-largest party—and helped the center-right bloc win an unexpected victory.
“I stand between the blue-browns and power,” Green Party politician Marta Stenevi said in an interview this month. “Blue-brown” is an epithet the Greens’ co-leader frequently used when talking about Sweden’s center-right opposition parties, especially during the election campaign.
So do other Greens, not to mention the Social Democrats. Even outgoing Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson, who was contesting her first general election as the Social Democrats’ leader and appeared stateswoman-like with Finnish President Sauli Niinisto to discuss Sweden’s and Finland’s NATO bids this spring, took to denouncing every party to the right of the center divide as “blue-brown.”
The left’s fascist-scare rhetoric propelled the far-right Sweden Democrats to a stunning result—taking nearly 21 percent of the vote and becoming the country’s second-largest party.
One of these parties, the Sweden Democrats, is what some would call far-right (that is, brown), though the Sweden Democrats themselves—whose signature position is a call for reduced immigration—consider themselves pragmatists. Indeed, throughout the Sweden Democrats’ rise through parliamentary power over the past 12 years, even the Social Democrats have adopted a more restrictive stance on immigration.
The other parties targeted with the blue-brown smear are market liberal-conservatives, market liberals, and Christian Democrats, respectively. (Their logos all use variations of the color blue.) But that didn’t matter; because the three parties had expressed a willingness to work with the Sweden Democrats, the Social Democrats and the Greens sensed an opportunity to tarnish them all as fascists.
I have lived in many countries—all of them liberal democracies—but never have I seen one bloc consistently besmirch the opposition with such epithets.
One would have thought that given the fiendish problems Sweden faces, its governing parties—the Greens were the Social Democrats’ junior partner until last November—would have done their best to convince voters that if given another term in government, they’d present stellar solutions.
Among the problems that need urgent attention is a gun violence epidemic that has been growing since 2013 despite gun violence having declined in the rest of Europe. In the roughly 38,000-person town of Kalmar, Sweden, for example, three people have been shot to death this year.
The violence is mostly carried out among rival gangs in 61 heavily immigrant areas identified by the police, but it frequently harms innocent bystanders, including children. There’s, of course, also the energy crisis; there’s climate change; and Sweden’s schools and health care system need attention.
Until about 11 p.m. on election night, the negative campaigning seemed to have worked for the Social Democrats and the Greens. Together with the Left Party and the (formerly center-right) Centre Party, they were on track for a victory over the center-right bloc led by the Moderates’ leader, Ulf Kristersson. But then the balance tipped.
By Wednesday night, with virtually all votes counted, Kristersson’s team had won 176 of the Riksdag’s 349 seats, with 173 seats for Andersson’s side. It’s a small margin—but a victory, and a surprise victory at that.
On Wednesday night local time, Andersson conceded, and Kristersson will now go about forming a government. It is unclear which role, if any, the Sweden Democrats will play in it, but even if the party doesn’t end up running any ministries, it will still play a crucial role in parliament.
The previously shunned outfit that only entered parliament in the 2010 elections is, after all, now Sweden’s second-largest party.
The center-right win is a sign that U.S.-style negative campaigning isn’t a cure for lack of policy ideas. Yes, the “blue-brown” besmirching does appear to have weakened the Moderates—who won 19.1 percent of the vote, down by 0.7 percentage points from the 2018 elections—and the Christian Democrats, who won 5.3 percent of the vote, down by 1 percentage point.
But the Sweden Democrats, the main target of the smearing, emerged unscathed; in fact, they were the election’s clear winner, winning a 20.5 percent share of the vote (up by 3 percentage points) and becoming the country’s second-largest party.
But despite the name-calling, the pro-market Liberals returned from an expected political death this year under a feisty new interim leader, Johan Pehrson, and won 4.6 percent of the vote (down just 0.9 percentage points after polling so badly this year that it seemed unlikely to reach the Riksdag’s 4 percent threshold).
Meanwhile, the Left and Centre Parties—who were also part of Andersson’s electoral coalition—slumped badly, each scoring 6.7 percent of the vote, down by 1.3 and 1.9 percentage points, respectively.
Indeed, many former Social Democrat and Centre Party voters have defected to the Sweden Democrats in recent years. Especially in the case of the Centre Party, this election showed that its traditional rural voters no longer felt represented by top Centre politicians who mostly seemed to flirt with the metropolitan elite.
To be sure, the election wasn’t decided just by the Social Democrats and the Greens playing the fascist card. The parties presented different ideas about how to tackle the gun violence epidemic, how the school system should be set up, how to tackle climate change, and what to do about the energy crisis.
The Christian Democrats, in particular, functioned as the blue trio’s vanguard, presenting innovative ideas—including how to tackle gang warfare, how to slash health care waiting times, and why Sweden should expand nuclear power—that the Moderates and Liberals could build on.
Against this competition, the Social Democrats’ dearth of ideas stood out.
Their top promise was to “turn over every stone” to defeat organized crime, which (of course) raises the question of why they haven’t done so during their eight years in power.
Kristersson may have been too cautious in presenting new proposals lest they offend any given constituency. As a result, he cut a bit of a plain figure. But the lifelong free-market liberal is certainly not a fascist.
Now Kristersson has been handed a surprise victory. On Wednesday night, he promised to form a government that would swiftly tackle Sweden’s challenges, whereas the Moderate Party’s secretary highlighted NATO membership, the gun epidemic, and the energy crisis as priorities.
If nothing else, the election winners will certainly approach their popular mandate with more humility than the Social Democrats, who have governed Sweden for so long that they seem to think it’s their right to do so.
If I had been the Social Democrats’ election guru, I would have told them this: Learn a few lessons from former U.S. President Bill Clinton. He spoke of a place called Hope while you frightened voters by invoking a fascist specter. Instead, the majority Swedes handed their votes to parties that presented policy solutions for their country.

Per his creators.com bio:
“Ramirez, who studied premed at the University of California, Irvine, originally considered journalism a hobby. But he was hooked when his first cartoon for the college newspaper, lampooning candidates for student office, had the student assembly demanding an apology.
“Editorial cartoons should be smart and substantive, provocative and informative. They should stir passions and deep emotions. Editorial cartoons should be the catalyst for thought, and frankly speaking, if you can make politicians think, that is an accomplishment in itself. If I don’t get at least one death threat every few months, then I’m not doing my job,” Ramirez says of his penchant for sparking controversy.
In addition to the 1994 and 2008 Pulitzer Prizes, Ramirez was the 2008 winner of the prestigious Fischetti Award. He is a three-time Sigma Delta Chi, Society of Professional Journalism Award winner, a Lincoln Fellow and a recipient of the UCI Medal.
He is a senior editor and the editorial cartoonist for Investor’s Business Daily. He is formerly the editorial cartoonist for the Los Angeles Times, The Memphis Commercial Appeal and a contributing cartoonist for USA Today. His work is syndicated by Creators Syndicate.”
Ramirez was born in Tokyo, Japan, to a Mexican-American father and Japanese-American mother, and went to University of Irvine, California. A conservative and a Republican, Ramirez made this cartoon again in appreciation and respect for the Queen Elizabeth, the traditions, and civilizational values she and the British people represented, and much of the religious and political culture which we Americans inherited and built our country on, for example, such as a common Christian consensus and English Common Law.
He is an example of an American conservative who regarded her, the monarchy, and her reign in history with love and respect, even though his personal ancestry doesn’t have direct links to the British Isles.
It’s mindboggling to anyone with a sense of history. Elizabeth met her first PM Sir Winston Churchill and her last Liz Truss. Those two were born over 100 years apart. Imagine all that has transpired in all those years and the 70 years that she was Queen, exactly for as long as I have been alive.
Here’s examples of the deranged, psychotic lunacy that’s erupting here in North America as our own cultures and historical memory get erased and efforts are made to demonically transform what used to be decent, law-abiding, restrained societies.
First off, from the Blaze:
Canadian school ’standing behind’ transgender shop class teacher with enormous prosthetic breasts
Photos and videos of a Canadian shop class teacher have sparked worldwide questions. The transgender high school instructor with enormous prosthetic breasts recently went viral. The school in Ontario stands behind the biological male teacher with preposterously large fake breasts and is bracing for a backlash.
The individual is a Manufacturing and Technology instructor at the Oakville Trafalgar High School in Oakville, Ontario. Video shows the teacher wearing black shorts and a blacked-striped shirt that is stretched to the maximum by the individual’s large prosthetic breasts.
Video shows the trans teacher is teaching high school students how to use a circular saw during a class at the school.
If anyone overseas wonders just what the hell traditional, family-oriented moderates and conservatives are trying to beat back in the “culture wars,” a few minutes with Libs of Tik Tok will tell you much of what you need to know.
The owner of the Twitter account, who was doxxed and her life threatened by trannies and allied activists in a coordinated attack some months ago and who were responsible for Twitter suspending her account for a time, was doing nothing but reposting to Twitter without editing what the Libs had recorded about themselves on Tik Tok.
She quite rightly records her location as Depths of Hell.
But, there are daily incidents now in various places in America of such things as the beheading of a woman in broad daylight by a sword-wielding psychotic illegal migrant, reportedly the father of her child (and, a common tactic within the Mexican drug cartels and their terror occupation of northern Mexico at the border); “man terrorizing McDonald’s customers with ax, violently destroying New York City restaurant”.
A report is out that 1 in 5 Californians reported sexual assault in the past year. There is not a day that goes by, evidence of a secret race war of individuals and gangs of criminal Blacks assaulting, robbing, and murdering Whites and Asians in the Blue states and cities, some of which are blatant racist attacks (not counting all of the “ordinary” Black on Black crimes and shootings keeping places like parts of gun-free Chicago and Detroit a war zone); and the LGBT+ psychological assault and indoctrination of our kids and subversion is accelerating every day, aided by the Biden government, DOJ and medical hospitals and authorities.
Our cities especially in the liberal bi-coastal Blue State Our Democrapcy™ internal empire are hellholes.
The satanic Antichrist beast system is asserting itself more and more each day, with its attendent violence, disorder, chaos, corruption, mental derangement, rising bloody paganism, sexual perversions, and glorification of the Seven Deadly Sins as human rights, while the Jews, and their ideological brothers-in-commerce capitalize off the same, and have done so for millennia.
So, its no coincidence that the Queen’s death and its subsequent pomp and grandeur stand out to Americans. For one thing, we have nothing that is so iconically and symbolically rich in our tradition, for its association with an ancient Christian life (even as Puritan Reformers and Anglican Dissenters), Common Law, and culture in the English Tradition that much of American history is rooted in, especially the Colonial Era.
In fact, at the Constitutional Convention, there continued internal debate as to what form of federal government the Republic should take — a democratic republic or commonwealth, or a constitutional monarchy, aka, a monarchial republic or commonwealth.
When Elizabeth Willing Powel, a prominent society figure and the wife of Philadelphia Mayor Samuel Powel asked Benjamin Franklin at the close of the Constitutional Convention of 1787 if the delegates had created a republic or a monarchy, Benjamin Franklin replied, “A republic, if you can keep it.”
There’s a popular yarn among American history buffs that George Washington, in the waning months of the Revolutionary War, was “offered the crown” of the fledgling nation by a group of American military officers fed up with an ineffective Congress.
That’s not quite true, but there is correspondence between Irish-American Colonel Lewis Nicola, commander of the Invalid Corps and his Commander-in-Chief George Washington with whom he had a professional and personal relationship with, voicing the concerns of the officers and troops over their promised pensions not being paid by the States as their economies worsened into a national crisis.
In the letter, Nicola expresses that there was a strong monarchial sentiment among the officer corps of Washington’s Continental Army, not all were fully committed republicans, and many of whom previously served in the British Army colonial forces in North America before going over to Washington. In part of his letter to Washington, Nicola proposes the formation of a constitutional monarchy.
That’s not exactly offering Washington a kingship as the popular American legend goes.
But this letter does give some legs to the story of Ben Frankin and Mrs. Powel on the last day of the Constitutional Convention. If the monarchial sentiment was strong enough in the Continental Army that Washington had to firmly rebuff it, along with the implication of mutiny, then the political sentiment was also held by some in the Thirteen United States.
The out of context sound-byte “A republic if you can keep it” is routinely abused by members of Congress thrown as brickbats at each other in what passes for civilized debate in Congress.
Somewhere in the hearts of many Americans, especially older like myself, there’s a place that has a soft spot for the British monarchy, and some who’ve wondered, what would America have been like if we’d become a monarchy, too?
Just paddling around in a canoe trying to stay afloat a rising cesspool…
With love from Deplorableland, Heartland of America.
Lunacy is out there, somewhere. We live in a time dominated by political and media derangement.
The Royal Family conspiracy fantasy gore cottage industry is revving up, and this tidbit out of Africa ought to hit American “ancient illuminati blood-line conspiracy” social media outlets any day now, equated with Satanic Baphomet worship.
I just came across a Facebook post from a Nigerian in an obviously woke fit of anti-British empire pique, who claimed that a white goat in an image taken at the proclamation of Prince Charles as the King of England was meant for sacrifice.
The post, which was shared on a Facebook page with the name APGA Interactive Forum (AIF Media), on Wednesday, September 15, added that such practice would be criticised if it happened in Africa.
“This is the British carrying a white ram (intended for sacrifice) for the crowning and declaration of Prince Charles as King of England.”
“This is their ancient tradition and culture (Ọdịnaanị na Omenaanị as we call it).
“If this was an African king or Ìgbò chief, our brainwashed Christian brethren will call it idol worship, worshipping Alusi, and paganism.
“These are the same people that brought you the ‘church’ and told you that your ways were evil. They deceived you to abandon your ancient ways, only for them to hold unto their own.
“See them celebrate their own with pride. Africa wake up.
~ Chuka Nduneseokwu,” the post read.
Wrong! The ceremony was to formally receive the King of England and Wales for a prayer service commemorating Queen Elizabeth at Cardiff Castle, and the goat is a 200+ year-old Welsh military tradition.
The goat is a regimental mascot, Lance Corporal Sheinkin IV, of the Royal Welsh Third Battalion, formally enrolled as a soldier complete with identification number and a salary. I understand all of the Royal Welsh have regimental goat-mascots, with different names for the different regiments.
King Charles Can’t Stop Smiling While Meeting Wales’ Goat Mascot
A fellow from Ghana, another former British colony, fact checks his fellow African and clears the record:
“On the passing of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, his status as Prince Charles changed to King Charles III.
“At the ceremony to proclaim him as King of Wales, the Third Battalion of the Royal Welsh marched through the streets of Cardiff in a procession that was led by a goat, on Sunday, September 11, 2022.
“Known as Sheinkin IV, the official goat of the Third Battalion, it raised many questions about what the significance of this animal in the ranks stood for.
“According to multiple reports from international websites, the Sheinkin IV is the latest in a long line of regimental mascots for the Royal Welsh, who have been adopting goats into their ranks since 1775.
According to grunge.com, the truth about the Royal Welsh goat is that for over 200 years, the Royal Welsh has employed members of the Capra hircus (domestic goats) species.
“The tradition is said to date back to the American War of Independence. In 1775, at the Battle of Bunker Hill, a stray goat trotted across the military front. When the goat led the color party–the soldiers carrying and protecting the flags– of the Royal Welsh Fusiliers off the field to safety, they adopted him (via the National Army Museum of the UK).
“Since that battle’s victory, the Royal Welsh have believed that goats bring good luck and regularly adopt them to serve with the regiment,” the website said.
And if that’s not enough, Michael Sheen, whoever he is, a Welsh actor, television producer, political activist for Welsh independence, trying to make himself relevent to grievance culture so beloved of the Sussexes of Hollywood, has apparently joined the parade of the perpetually offended.
Incidentally, this great Welsh patriot lived in Hollywood for around 20 years not paying any taxes to Wales and the UK, and had a four-year relationship with the skanky anti-Christ Jewess, Sarah Silverman, among other female Hollywood celebs.
He had to reach back over 600 years in Welsh history to find something to be offended by, which turns out to be an event that most patriotic Welsh aren’t even aware of, and is certainly not on the official list of Welsh holidays and state commemorations.
Per Wales on Line:
Some people think Michael Sheen went too far by criticising King Charles for visiting on Glyndwr day
The Hollywood star’s video has split opinion among people in Wales, but he’s certainly raised awareness of Owen Glyndwr Day
18 September, 2022
“Sheen posted a video on Twitter on Friday afternoon thanking King Charles for his visit, but then questioning why the royal visit had happened on Owain Glyndwr day.
Owain Glyndwr is one of Wales’ most notable historical figures and is known throughout the nation as the last - self-proclaimed - native Prince of Wales.
Every year people gather in Corwen town square to mark Owain Glyndwr Day on September 16 - the date in which Glyndwr’s proclamation took place in 1400, when Glyndwr began a 15-year uprising against the then-king of England, Henry IV.
Glyndwr has a statue in the square and the event usually consists of a procession and wreath laying ceremony by the statue of Glyndwr right at the heart of the town, before a service is carried out at a local church. But this year, some events in Wales were scaled back to avoid clashing with King Charles’ visit to the Welsh capital.
Despite the King’s visit some events celebrating Owain Glyndwr on September 16 did go ahead. People in Corwen did gather at his statue, while the Cambrian band also marched to the statue at 11am.
There was also a service at Seion Church. A walking tour started at Owain Glyndwr’s Parliament House in Machynlleth at 10am and 2pm, and Caffi Alys in the town also hosted a night of music to celebrate the day.
In the video, Sheen said about the timing of the visit: “If it’s chosen deliberately then I’m sure many people will feel that is quite insulting to those who celebrate Owain Glyndwr.
“And if it wasn’t done on purpose. If it was done accidentally without realising what day it was then one does wonder what being Prince of Wales actually meant to him if you’re not aware what that day means.”
Sheen acknowledged the Queen’s death as an “emotional era defining period of time” and lamented the loss of “so much history and tradition” as well as great “sadness and grief”.
He offered his condolences to the royal family and said: “For people who are proud of their Britishness, the queen is very much a symbol of that.” But then he continued by saying there was “more than one story in these isles”.
More than one thousand people took to Facebook to share their views on Sheen’s video, with many saying that the majority of Welsh people do not celebrate, or in some cases even realise the significance of the date in Wales.
Carol Jones said: “How many people were actually aware of this? I hardly think it was deliberately planned. The poor man has just lost his mother but has had to carry on with official duties.”
Susan Owen, agreed, replying: “When most Welsh people and those living in Wales have never heard of Owain Glyndwr day, why on Earth would his staff or him know? Notice I say Owain Glyndwr day, and not Owain Glyndwr, who the King actually referred to in his address yesterday.”
Kay Tudor, from Caerphilly, said she thought Wales would “never again have a Welsh Prince of Wales”.
“Michael Sheen, you should show some respect for the lady [the Queen] who devoted her life to duty. King Charles has worked hard supporting her as Prince of Wales and in his own right. He has earned respect. There cannot have been many people aware of Owain Glyndwr day, and he has been so busy this week that I doubt he would have known either.”
Like many others, Colin Morgan also said he’d never heard of Owain Glyndwr day. “Who exactly designated Owain Glyndwr day? Although I’m not an authority on all things, my family is Welsh and I’ve lived in Wales for over two decades, and never once have I heard of such a thing as Owain Glyndwr day.”
Diamond Gee added: “Or no meaning other than ticking all the boxes before the funeral. I’m happy to say I’m a Welsh ‘not that bothered by the royal family’ person, but I do feel the bottom of the barrel is being scraped heavily by those wishing to make something out of anything they can to undermine Charles et al.”
Some thanked Sheen for the video, saying they’d been educated on what Owain Glyndwr day was the first time.
Geoff Ifans said: “Just shows how little knowledge the Welsh have of their own history, their own story, but anything on English history or the royal family and they’re experts. It’s called a lifetime of brainwashing from birth to coffin. Everything is aimed at turning the Welsh into tame little replicas of English people.”
Marc Howells responded: “Well, at least something good has come from this. Previously the vast majority of Welsh people would have been unaware of Owain Glyndwr day. Now more people will be aware of the day next year.”
Ceri Tan added: “Truly baffled by the comments of: ‘Oh, I’m sure King Charles had no idea of the date. He’s had a difficult week, cut him some slack.’ 1) There isn’t someone who organises his diary. I’m sure he has a whole team who should make it their job to know of these things. 2) Charles has been the Prince of Wales for how long? For those who believe he truly cares about our country, shouldn’t this be something he is aware of, and how it could be seen as an insult to some of the people of Wales?”
As to the last point, the massively complex “whole of government” plans and logistics for Queen Elizabeth’s royal state funeral were drawn up decades ago, along with appendix protocols in case she died away from London at Balmoral or overseas, added to the main operational plan, subject to revision several times a year.
Poached from Wiki (its worth reading just to get an idea of the scale of the effort which has gone into the planning and implementation for the Queen’s state funeral):
Operation London Bridge (also known by its code phrase “London Bridge is down”) is the funeral plan for Queen Elizabeth II. The plan includes the announcement of her death, the period of official mourning, and the details of her state funeral.
The plan was created as early as the 1960s and revised many times in the years before her death in 2022.
The phrase “London Bridge is down” would be used to communicate the death of the Queen to the prime minister of the United Kingdom and key personnel, setting the plan into motion.
Bodies involved in preparing the plan included various government departments, the Church of England, Metropolitan Police Service, the British Armed Forces, the media, the Royal Parks, London boroughs, the Greater London Authority and Transport for London.
Some critical decisions relating to the plan were made by the Queen herself, while some were left to be determined by her successor. Reporting on the preparations, The Guardian described them as “planned to the minute” with “arcane and highly specific” details.
Several other plans were also created to support the implementation of Operation London Bridge, such as Operation Unicorn (the plan that detailed what was to happen if Elizabeth were to die in Scotland, as she indeed did).
[Like the stolen rainbow appropriated by queers from the Bible, the “unicorn” and its stolen honor as a medieval heraldic and mystical symbol representing Christ, has nothing to do with New Age and modern queers, and everything to do with the unicorn being the national animal of Scotland. The unicorn was first introduced to the royal coat of arms of Scotland around the mid-1500s. - Kj]
Running concurrently with Operation London Bridge are operations concerning King Charles III’s accession to the throne and his coronation. Several Commonwealth realms developed their own plans for how to react to the death of the Queen.
Funerals and coronations of members of the Royal Family are typically organised by the Earl Marshal and the officers in the College of Arms. Preparations for Elizabeth II’s death and funeral have also been made by the Cabinet Office.
These operational plans would naturally not be dated, because no one would know when the Queen would pass away, but would follow some generic timetable such as day 1 after death, day 2, day 3, until her death date which would mean the calendar dates then be filled in.
At the same time, the operational plans for Charles’ accession were in motion, also on its own timetable (from the same Wiki entry):
“The Queen’s death and funeral plans work concurrently with Operation Spring Tide, the plan for the accession of Charles III to the throne.
One day after the Queen’s death, the Accession Council would meet at St James’s Palace and Charles would be proclaimed king. Parliament would meet that evening when MPs would swear allegiance to Charles III and express condolences for the Queen’s death.
Most parliamentary activities would then be suspended for 10 days. At 3:30 pm, Charles III would host the prime minister and the cabinet for an audience.
Two days after the Queen’s death, proclamations for the King would be made by the Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish administrations.
On the third day after the Queen’s death, Charles III would receive the motion of condolence at Westminster Hall in the morning and then depart for a tour of the United Kingdom. Charles III would visit the Scottish parliament and attend a service at St Giles’ Cathedral in Edinburgh.
On the next day, Charles III would visit Northern Ireland, where he would receive a motion of condolence at Hillsborough Castle and attend a service at St Anne’s Cathedral, Belfast.
Seven days after the Queen’s death, Charles III would visit Wales, receiving a motion of condolence at the Welsh parliament and attending a service at Llandaff Cathedral in Cardiff. [She died on the 8th, the 9th started the operational clock. Seven days later for the visit to Wales would be September 16 - Kj]
Supporting plans exist within Operations Spring Tide for specific arrangements in each constituent country in the UK; including Operation Shamrock for Northern Ireland, Operation Kingfisher for Scotland, and Operation Dragon for Wales.”
Michael Sheen is not serious.
By all means work for Welsh independence, and bring forgotten Welsh heroes to the public mind. But this little dig is just boorish and stupid.
I feel the same way about the Confederate civil war heroes, who were also honorable men who accepted defeat, God-fearing in that they accepted the defeat of the South as God’s definitive will to abolish slavery for all time.
That chapter of the history book closed, many of these ex-Confederates worked very hard to reconcile the South with the North. They also worked to improve race relations, and advocated for Southerners against the parasitic “carpetbaggers and scalawags” invading the South during the federal occupation Reconstruction Era imposed by the vengeful Radical Republicans in Congress, doing what they could to rebuild the South and create an entirely new peaceful society and economy.
Now their statues and other commemorative sites from the Civil War are being destroyed and removed in cancel culture purges all over America, and erasing civic memory and monumental history in the process.
But Sheen is simply resorting to snarky grievance culture to call attention to himself, at the expense of King Charles, who had nothing whatsoever to do with picking the day for his official visitation to Wales, nor could simply change his calendar.
What a stupid bone to pick. Why not take it up with the Welsh government, which, if the Owain Glyndwr commemoration was so much of Welsh culture and tradition, seeing a conflict in their own protocols, might possibly have said to London, “Er, wait up. We couldn’t possibly have King Charles visit us today. It’s our Owain Glyndwr day”?
Somehow, these enormous state funeral and accession plans involving the entire Commonwealth of Nations should have been rearranged just to accomodate an unofficial Welsh commemoration date according to Sheen’s whims.
Why didn’t Sheen just say it was insensitive of Queen Elizabeth to die when she did because the funeral and accession plans interfere with the little-known commemoration of Owain Glyndwr even among the Welsh.
He considers himself a Welsh patriot and activist for years, and has been quite visible, especially given his rousing speech to the Welsh soccer team, In the meantime, I did an advanced history search of his Twitter account, and not once has he ever tweeted the name, Owain Glyndwr, that I could find.
If the Queen had died one day sooner or one day later, the planned visitation of King Charles and Queen Camila to Wales would have been either the 15th or the 17th, depending on the protocol timetable. It was nothing personal or designed as a slight to the Welsh.
Sheen, if you want to bring up forgotten resistance leaders in the British Isles, lets start with Hereward the Wake in East Anglia.
The word “activist” is synonymous with the word -sshole.
It’s a catch all meant to link someone incapable of tying up their own shoe laces with credibility.
The jew boys like Wolf Blitzer use it all the time.

HOLOCAUST - truth and lies
“(6) Jewish Nathanael Kapner (born 1950), a convert to Orthodox Christianity making anti-Zionist ‘Real Jew News’ postings & videos, says, “The Holocaust tale is a huge HOAX”
Jewish Scholar Refutes The Holocaust | Real Jew News”
Then further down, there’s a comparison of a 1912 train disaster photo in Dresden, Ohio which was used to fake a holocaust photo.
“Dresden, Ohio, USA” and/or “Dresden, Germany” or neither?
“Dresden, Ohio, USA” is very ironic given that there accusations that some of the bodies charred from Churchill’s fire-storm bombings of “Dresden, Germany” were some of those bodies later claimed to be Jews charred by the German authorities in the concentration camps during latter stage of WW-2.
I have an Africa story, too! Sort of.
When I visited my grandfather’s ranch in Central California, I was expected to learn how to hand milk a dairy cow, help slaughter beef and pig, and went hunting with him for small wild game, the ever ubiquitous wild boar, wild birds, and deer.
There was some crazy wild game that would also turn up that he didn’t shoot. Randolf Hearst Castle & Ranch had a private zoo, the largest zoo in the world formally named the Hearst Garden of Comparative Zoology. Hearst created it in the tradition of historical menageries and game parks maintained by royalty and the wealthy for millennia. It was full of exotic wild animals, the herbivores were allowed to range semi-free inside very large fenced off areas, which hardly contained anything.
The zoo was home to a variety of exotic and indigenous but wild species, including Rocky Mountain elk, American bison, antelope, camels (both the two-hump and one-hump varieties), sambar and red deer, llamas, ostriches, emus, Barbary and Alaskan sheep, oxen, yaks and giraffes.
In 1957, the Hearst Corporation donated the Castle to the State of California, but kept the very extensive surrounding property to continue to operate as a cattle ranch to this very day along with being a massive conservation preserve in a state deal that took years to negotiate — the biggest land conservation deal in the world.
The boundary of the then 250,000 acre (at largest point, 400 sq miles) Hearst Ranch wasn’t all that far from my the hills with my grandfather’s cattle ranch, and there were always escapees going deeper inland into the mountains away from the coast where the castle was, sometimes winding up on my grandfather’s ranch.
The Hearst Ranch is now down to 83,000 acres (129 sq miles) and they now raise and sell top-end seasonal Hearst Grass-fed Beef raised on this, and the companion Hearst-owned 73,000-acre Jack Ranch purchased by Hearst Corp in 1965, located 60 miles inland in Cholame, California, largely marketed to Whole Foods Market.
My pioneer clan’s old homestead and more modest ranch operations are just southeast adjacent to the Jack Ranch, and shares some of the same terrain.
In 1937, Hearst declared bankruptcy, and in 1957 the Castle was donated to the State. All the while my grandfather and his brother and sons were operating the ranch.
Now, some of these exotics have thoroughly incorporated themselves into the local ecosystems. The zebras when they escape their confines on the Hearst property can be local pests. I remember 10 years ago, 3 zebras got shot by local ranchers for invading their ranches and upsetting their own horses.
My second cousins, whom I’ve not ever met, still own and operate our great-grandfather’s old homestead keeping it in the pioneer clan, have turned the ranch into a European-style guided hunting outfit, and some of the exotics, descendants of Hearst’s zoo, are on the list along with still doing cattle operations. They lease hunting rights to other large ranch properties in the area and so, have year-round access to 300,000 acres of private hunting ground (468 sq miles).
I remember as a kid once seeing a few of Hearst’s zebras crossing a shallow hill with some cattle. Couldn’t believe my eyes.
I learned to hunt with a bow from my uncle, an expert bow hunter, who used to go big game hunting when he worked in Alaska in the 50s and 60s, and bagged a grizzly bear that he turned into a rug.
Not fun or pleasurable to kill animals, but it was food for the table, nothing went to waste. An athletic girl, I enjoyed the outdoor challenge of sports hunting, learning and using skills, making sure I did everything to make sure of a clean kill, but it was a melancholic sense of accomplishment, too.
Granddad was a staunch Scottish Presbyterian who always asked for God’s blessing before killing and butchering an animal, and giving a thanksgiving prayer after. He taught me not to take meat and food for granted, to be thankful for any food I had, and to know where our sanitized, cut-up, neatly packaged food and meat cuts really came from. It comes from a once live animal which God gifted to man for food.
I’m a big supporter and regular customer of a local family ranch who raise grass-fed/pasteured food animals. They grow and bale their own grass hay in the summer to make sure the livestock will have feed throughout the winter. They do “carbon farming” — modern
regenerative farming and agricultural practices designed for “carbon sequestering in the soil to reduce the carbon footprint” — to rehab the old over-grazed, eroded, soil-depleted cattle ranch they bought over a decade ago.
In other words, they are building up carbon-rich, healthy soil again through natural methods like rotating pastures for grazing and such and letting the manure naturally work into the soil, no-till, cover crops, and…pretty much the same methods my grandfather used, only he didn’t call it “carbon sequestering”.
He knew that well-managed grazing enhances the biotic condition of native California grasslands, oak woodlands, and the high-country semi-arid plains and prairies, and the wildlife.
Everything old is new again. Grandad would have said, “Regenerative? Why didn’t you get it right the first time?” He ranched until he was 75, and then he retired, living to 88.
In the meantime, Australia’s government is now feeding bugs to school kids in the form of chips made out of cricket powder, and Welsh schools started a pilot program offering bugs to students at four primary schools.
I’ve wrung a few chicken and rabbit necks as a kid for my single mother’s young family to survive. She learned how growing up on the ranch. She worked a fulltime and sometimes 2 more part time jobs to support us and raised backyard rabbits, and because we lived just outside of city limits back in the 50s and 60s, had chickens.
My late sister to make ends meet as a single mother raising her boy after her husband abandoned her, went back to raising rabbits and chickens for food, had a couple of goats, and gardening while living in Nevada.
My childhood was when Santa Clara Valley was still 90% agricultural with the most beautiful fruit and nut orchards, even olive trees, vegetable farms, and vineyards in the world, and there was 3 or 4 miles between towns and cities. Not much in the way of suburbs.
I worked in those orchards and the canneries as an underage ag laborer from the age of 12, when I finally became eligible for a work permit. Many school kids my age did.
There was hardly anything in the way of sprawling, jammed suburb, but the Machine, computer industrialization, the pre-existing military-industrial-NASA complex corporations which had always been in the South Bay Area scattered here and there, was already doing its grinding work chewing up some of the most fertile and fruitful land in the world for the sake of “progress”.
High Tech moved in, plowed under the orchards, “paved paradise and put up a parking lot,” and blocky concrete and glass buildings, and that’s when The Valley began sprouting silicon chips. Mile after mile, lack earth, which rivaled anything in Ukraine or Russian steppes, was dug up and paved over.
Just think, Santa Clara Valley once supplied 10% of the world’s dried fruit supply, and one third of the prunes. It was known as “The Valley of Hearts Delight”.
Now the famous orchards are reduced to being outdoor museum displays, like this demonstration “Historic Orchard,” because the younger generations have no idea where their fruit and vegetables come from.
Counting Crows - Big Yellow Taxi ft. Vanessa Carlton (Joni Mitchell cover)
The Santa Clara Valley in California has been called “The Valley of Heart’s Delight”. With the advancement in the technologies brought about by the microchip, it has become “Silicon Valley” at great cost as many of the orchards were torn down to make way for new homes.
Cameraman Caroll ‘Bing’ Whitaker chronicled that transformation in 1964. This 16mm film was provided courtesy of History San Jose and digitally transferred by the California Pioneers of Santa Clara County.
Had to work hard growing up, but this was my paradise back then. Sometimes my uncle took me duck and pheasant hunting in season out in the Baylands.
That was a good post re the California of yore. The part about Hearst’s zoo was especially interesting to me. You got me thinking, so I began to dig into Hearst a bit.
A larger than life man for sure. He helped dupe Americans into the Spanish-American war with his tales of Spanish atrocities in Cuba. Most of which were no doubt exaggerated - or outright falsehoods.
He created the art of yellow journalism: sex, scandals, cartoons, lurid headlines in bold letters, in his empire of newspapers and magazines.
He made or destroyed careers, political and others with a single headline. And all the while jews were paying close attention. The importance of controlling the media became instilled in their DNA and has since become obsessive.
In fact, they’ve taken his formula and expanded on it. As Satan whips them onwards! Still, much of what we’re seeing in the media today can be tracked back to the William Randolph Hearst template.
His publishing genius, profligate spending habits, bankruptcy, affairs and later conversion to conservativism make for a complicated psychological reading. But like most of us he did some good along the way.
However, the part of his story that reached me the most was about a little-known woman who had a huge impact. On architecture.
Julia Morgan was the mind behind Hearst Castle, and many other noteworthy buildings in California. A quiet, plain looking workaholic in her private life, the buildings she designed are cleverly engineered and remarkably pleasing to the eye: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Julia_Morgan
She never married, slept and ate sparingly and said little about herself. Quite the beauty in her younger days though.

Dear No More War For The Jews,
My fellow “White Supremacist,” after first reading your comment, and then Anglin’s piece, I’m planning to go do some shopping for war.
I’ve already ordered a t-shirt with the Confederate Battle Flag on it.
Since I’m now a “White Supremacist Domestic Terrorist” according to Our Democracy™-DOJ, At first I was going to buy one with a bullseye target on it, just so the feds could get a good sighting.
But I figured if I’ve already got a target on my back for DOJ, then I might as well go really, really annoying, and get the t-shirt with the Confederate Battle Flag and its saltire cross which should work just as well.
Because X marks the spot just as well as a bullseye for the American Bolshie Stasi under the Cuban Jew Mayorkas.
And, I may get even more Confederate memorabilia to decorate my house and fill in the blanks areas on walls not taken up with the Orthodox Icons and family photos in case they serve a search warrant on me for not being in Washington DC on January 6, 2021.
I can legitimately do so, right alongside the Bear Flag.
My maternal Scottish great-grandfather who survived the 1838 cholera epidemic as a boy in St Louis, Missouri, (mentioned in an earlier post to Johann) in his late-20s, emigrated about 1858-1859 as a California pioneer along the transcontinental Oregon-California Trail with the rest of the surviving Grant clan, eventually settling in Kern County, Central California.
There’s some circumstantial evidence that he was a Southern sympathiser in pro-Confederate areas of California, besides the fact that he’d migrated from Missouri just a couple of years before the war broke out, embarking from Independence, Missouri.
On the maternal English/Pennsylvania Deutsch branch of the Colonial American family tree, my other great-grandfather from Pennsylvania fought in the Union Army, with a close collateral branch of the same family fighting for the Confederacy.)
Great-grandfather, Scottish national who came to Missouri as a child, later migrated to California and married a full-blooded Scottish woman later in life in Bakersfield, CA.
He fathered 8 children, was granted homestead property in the 1870s, built up a 10,000 acre cattle ranch in the high oak/savannah Carrizo Plain in the Santa Maria Mountains San Luis Obispo just a stone’s toss over the Kern County line, about a day’s ride to San Bernardino County.
This area of Central California is famous for its rare, spectular, breathtakingly gorgeous “superblooms” of brilliantly colored Spring wildflower displays when there is timely and superabundant rainfall.
Nevertheless, he, like many new migrants to the new Republic of California from other parts of the US, including the South, would as much as possible stay current with the news, especially out of Washington, DC.
Originally, expanding Western settlement in the mid-19th century prompted the need for a reliable means of mail deliver, which was originally met by overland stagecoach companies on one of several routs and by steamship routes that either went around South America or included an overland trip across the Isthmus of Panama.
However, as national tensions simmered in advance of the Civil War (1861–65), rapid transmission of news became imperative, and the standard 24-day schedule for overland delivery from Missouri to the West Coast thus proved no longer sufficient.
The origin of the idea for a speedier system is most often attributed to California Sen. William M. Gwin, who is usually credited with having suggested the idea to the private freighting firm Russell, Majors and Waddell.
There had been previous attempts at regional and transcontinental overland mail service and routs since 1850, the most notable being The Butterfield Overland Mail Company—a consortium of four express companies: Adams, American, National, and Wells, Fargo & Company—signed a six-year contract with the U.S. government on September 15, 1857, using combinations of stagecoach and pony delivery, but the Butterfield service was susceptible to attacks by Apache, Comanche, and Kiowa peoples.
Moreover, with the beginning of the Civil War in 1861, most of the Butterfield Overland Mail line would be disrupted and destroyed by Confederate troops.
The Butterfield (or Oxbow) Route went from St. Louis, Missouri, south to Little Rock, Arkansas, through El Paso, Texas, then west to Yuma, Arizona, on to Los Angeles, and north to San Francisco, for a total distance of some 2,700 miles (4,350 km) over a 25-day schedule.
And so, the Pony Express was born. The Pony Express route was nearly 2,000 miles (3,200 km) long overland, had about 190 stations (mostly in Nebraska, Wyoming, Utah, and Nevada), and required about 10 days to cover. Each rider generally rode 75 to 100 miles (120 to 160 km) and changed horses every 10 to 15 miles (16 to 24 km).
The service (used mainly by newspapers and businesses) was remarkably efficient—during its 18 months, only one bag of mail was reported lost—but it was ultimately an expensive stopgap.
The Pony Express operated from April 1860–October 1861. It ceased with the completion of the transcontinental telegraph system. Wells Fargo Stage Company assumed operation of some of the branch Pony Express terminal lines for a couple of more years.
Although a financially disastrous brief enterprise, the Pony Express and its most famous riders, such as William (“Buffalo Bill”) Cody (who is a leaf on my maternal family tree) and Robert (“Pony Bob”) Haslam (originally an Englishman, born in London in 1840), captured the national imagination as one of the most daring and colourful episodes in the history of the American West. Numerous human interest news stories and books were written about their work and adventures.
The advertised delivery time for the Pony Express to deliver mail from Saint Joseph to San Francisco was ten days. When it delivered President Lincoln’s Inaugural Address of March 2, 1861, it only took seven days and seventeen hours, the fastest trip ever made by the Pony Express.
After Lincoln’s election in November 1860, seven states had left the Union, and a continent away, Calfornians received the news ( by Pony Express) within 10 days or so, and were already aligning into Union and Confederate camps by the time the South Carolinans fired on the federal Fort Sumpter in April, 1861.
During that delivery, Haslam rode 120 miles in eight hours and twenty minutes while wounded. Pony Bob Haslam is credited with having made the longest round trip ride of the Pony Express; it was during the Paiute Indian War.
In any case, as political life, public debate, and decision-making at local and state levels was still much slower in those days especially in DC, people managed to stay abreast of national news with just a lag of about 10 days until the implementation of the telegraph, especially in the political run-up to the Southern states secession from the Union, the formation and declared independence of the Confederacy, and finally the civil war.
The Civil war commenced on April 12, 1961 with the Battle of Fort Sumter near Charleston, South Carolina, when the South Carolina militia bombarded the fort, and it ended with the surrender of the Union Army the next day.
The Transcontinental Telegraph Line came online when on October 24, 1861, workers of the Western Union Telegraph Company link the eastern and western telegraph networks of the nation at Salt Lake City, Utah, completing a transcontinental line that for the first time allows instantaneous communication between Washington, D.C., and San Francisco.
The Pony Express was disbanded two days later.
Stephen J. Field, chief justice of California, sent the first transcontinental telegram to President Abraham Lincoln, predicting that the new communication link would help ensure the loyalty of the western states to the Union during the Civil War. In California, Lincoln had won by plurality of Republicans.
There’s a blank spot in the time line of my great-grandfather’s bachelor life from about 1860 to 1872, which was never talked about other than he vaguely did odd jobs up in North California before getting married and settling down on the homestead. The time frame dovetails with some very interesting and little known California history, like how a large minority of Californians were on the Southern side, and some even fought in the Confederate Army.
My grandfather, the 2nd oldest son of 8 children born on the homestead ranch in Central California in 1888, figured that my immigrant Scottish great-grandfather who first settled in Missouri as a boy, must have joined some of the Southern California Confederate militias or partisans.
I’ve poached the next from different sources, including Wikipedia, but it’s solid history which was totally buried in local historical societies and rural family lore, until it started getting dug up by the Cancel Culture CRT Bolshies determined to erase every vestige of Southern Culture and Confederate history anywhere in the US, and use it as a cudgel against conservative Californian Republicans, although I did learn some of this growing up.
During the American Civil War, the secession of Missouri from the Union was controversial because of the state’s disputed status. Missouri was claimed by both the Union and the Confederacy, had two rival state governments, and sent representatives to both the United States Congress and the Confederate Congress.
Despite sporadic threats from pro-Confederate irregular armies, the Union government had established permanent control of Missouri by the end of 1861, with the Confederate government functioning only as a government in exile for the duration of the war.
As the Civil War began, many leading citizens were hoping Missouri could remain neutral in the growing conflict. These hopes were encompassed in the so-called Price–Harney Truce of May 21, 1861.
Implementation of the truce fell prey, however, to the growing conflict. At a meeting held at Planters’ House in St. Louis, June 11, 1861, it became clear that leading Missourians would have to choose sides.
In the fall of 1861, Governor Claiborne Jackson and other leading Missouri secessionists met in Neosho, Missouri. Acting as the Missouri General Assembly, this body enacted an ordinance of secession on October 28, 1861; however, the legal status of this ordinance was not accepted by Missouri’s Union supporters, then or later.
The secession government applied for and, on November 28, 1861, was granted admission to the Confederacy as the purported 12th state of the Southern federal republic.
As a result of military operations, however, particularly the Battle of Pea Ridge in March 1862, the Confederate government of Missouri was not able to establish control over much of the state; its jurisdiction extended only as far as Confederate military strength could reach.
Governor Jackson and his government were forced into exile. The exiled government established operations in Marshall, Texas, as part of the Trans-Mississippi bloc of Southern civil governments.
Although Confederate supporters in Missouri were unable to make their secession good, the Southern government-in-exile sent legislators to the Congress of the Confederate States, and Missouri was represented by the twelfth star on the Confederate flag.
Cue the ‘Bonnie Blue Flag’, an 1861 marching song associated with the CSA.
The Bonnie Blue Flag has come to symbolize secession, self-governance and State Sovereignty.
My great-grandfather, his aunt and cousins left Missouri during the late 1850s when there was intense pre-war guerrilla warfare along the Missouri-Kansas border.
This background may give some insight into parts of the state, mostly rural counties, known as Red State California, and their seccessionist mood. Just do a search on California Confederates and California in the Civil War.
Democrats had dominated California, admitted as a free state under the Compromise of 1850 after the California constitutional convention unanimously abolished slavery. As a result, Southerners in Congress voted against admission while Northerners pushed it through.
California Southern Democrats were sympathetic to secession. Although they were a minority in the state, they had become a majority in Southern California and Tulare County, and large numbers resided in San Joaquin, Santa Clara, Monterey, and San Francisco counties.
California was home for powerful San Francisco businessmen who played a significant role in Californian politics through their control of mines, shipping, finance, and the Republican Party, but Republicans had been a minority party until the secession crisis.
The Civil War split in the California Democratic Party allowed Abraham Lincoln to carry the state, albeit by only a slim margin. Unlike most free states, Lincoln won California with only a plurality as opposed to the outright majority in the popular vote.
In the beginning of 1861, as the secession crisis began, the secessionists in San Francisco made an attempt to separate the state and Oregon from the union, which failed. Southern California, with a majority of discontented Californios and Southern secessionists, had already voted for a separate Territorial government and formed militia units, but were kept from secession after the outbreak of war by Federal troops drawn from the frontier forts of the District of Oregon and District of California (primarily Fort Tejon and Fort Mojave).
At the outbreak of the Civil War, Southern California secession seemed possible; the populace was largely in favor of it, militias with secessionist sympathies had been formed, and Bear Flags, the banner of the Bear Flag Revolt, had been flown for several months by secessionists in Los Angeles and San Bernardino counties.
Fresh in the memories of Californians, The California Republic (Spanish: La República de California), or Bear Flag Republic, was an unrecognized breakaway state from Mexico, that for 25 days in 1846 militarily controlled an area north of San Francisco, in and around what is now Sonoma County in California.
For 26 days, the American settlers of the California Republic became its own independent nation.
After word of the Battle of Fort Sumter reached California, the opening volley of the Civil War, there were public demonstrations by secessionists. However secession quickly became impossible when three companies of Federal cavalry were moved from Fort Mojave and Fort Tejon into Los Angeles in May and June 1861.
During the secession crisis following Lincoln’s election, Federal troops were under the command of Colonel (Brevet Brigadier General) Albert Sidney Johnston, in Benicia, (San Francisco Bay Area) headquarters of the Department of the Pacific.
General Johnston strongly believed in the Southern right to secede but regretted that it was occurring. A group of Southern sympathizers in the state made plans to secede with Oregon to form a “Pacific Republic”. The success of their plans rested on the cooperation of General Johnston.
Johnston met with some of these Southern men, but before they could propose anything to him he told them that he had heard rumors of an attempt to seize the San Francisco forts and arsenal at Benicia, that he had prepared for that and would defend the facilities under his command with all his resources and to the last drop of his blood. He told them to tell this to their Southern friends.
Meanwhile, Union men feared Johnston would aid such a plot and communicated their fears to Washington asking for his replacement. Brig. Gen. Edwin Vose Sumner was soon sent west via Panama to replace Johnston in May 1861.
Johnston resigned his commission on May 31, and after Sumner arrived turned over his command and moved with his family to Los Angeles. He would soon travel with other Southerners across New Mexico Territory to Texas and become commander of the Confederacy’s western armies. He died at the Battle of Shiloh.
Suspected by local Union authorities, General Johnston evaded arrest and with Lewis Armistead joined the Los Angeles Mounted Rifles as a private.
Leaving Warner’s Ranch on May 27, traveling across the Mojave Desert and then through Arizona and New Mexico, an 800-mile journey in the height of summer, before arriving in Texas where they offered their services to the Confederacy. They crossed the Colorado River into the Confederate Territory of Arizona, on July 4, 1861.
The Los Angeles Mounted Rifles disbanded and members joined the Confederate Army shortly after they reached the Confederate Arizona Territorial capital of Mesilla (in what was then part of the United States’ New Mexico Territory and is now New Mexico).
Like other pro-Confederates leaving California for the Confederacy, the Rifles joined up principally with Texas regiments.
However General Johnston joined the fight in the east as a general with the Confederacy and was later killed leading their army at the Battle of Shiloh. Armistead died leading Pickett’s Charge at the Battle of Gettysburg.
The only capture of a Confederate flag in California during the Civil War took place on July 4, 1861, in Sacramento. During Independence Day celebrations, secessionist Major George P. Gilliss, an engineer and Mexican War veteran, celebrated the independence of the United States from Britain as well as the Southern states from the Union.
He unfurled a Confederate flag of his own design and proceeded to march down the street to both the applause and jeers of onlookers. Jack Biderman and Curtis Clark, enraged by Gilliss’ actions, accosted him and “captured” the flag.
The flag itself is based on the First National flag of the Confederacy, the Stars and Bars. However, the canton contains seventeen stars rather than the Confederate’s seven.
Because the flag was captured by Jack Biderman, it is often also referred to as the “Biderman Flag”.
In the first three and one-half years of the Civil War there had passed through the Port of San Francisco $173,000,000 from the California mines and the Comstock Lode of Nevada.
This immense treasure fed the coffers of the Union in its trials with the Confederacy and marked California as a prime target for Southern sympathizers. Without that gold and silver, the Union and the Confederacy would have been on more equal footing.
In contrast, the Confederacy was starved for cash and credit throughout the entire war.
At war’s outbreak, there was in the seven Confederate states only $27,000,000 in specie, beyond that lay nothing save the dubious expedients of credit and confidence. To seize gold shipments was the subject of at least two plots.
The CSA lacked the capacity to produce men-of-war and had to rely on European shipyards to produce ships needed to run the blockade of the Southern ports so as to export cotton which was sold to provide funds for ships and other armaments.
The two most famous raiders, both built by British shipyards, were the FLORIDA, captained by John Newland Maffit, and the ALABAMA, under Captain Raphael Semmes.
The FLORIDA, originally named ORETO, was armed in the Bahamas by British suppliers and was rammed and sunk at Bahia, Brazil by a U.S. warship in October 1864 in flagrant violation of International Law, but an action was dictated by wartime necessity.
The ALABAMA, in the winter of 1862-1863 sank 70 United States ships after steaming from Birkenhead, England, over strong American protests, and armed herself in the neutral Azores to begin her career as a commerce raider.
The ALABAMA was sunk in a three-hour battle off Cherbourg by the USS KEARSARGE, skippered by Semmes’ classmate Thomas Winslow. Ultimately, in 1885, an international tribunal awarded the
United States $16,145,830 paid by Great Britain as claims made against the depredations of ALABAMA and FLORIDA.
In California, Southern sympathizers named the mining district near Independence (Inyo County) the Alabama Hills, which later became the site of numerous western and adventure movies.
Northern sympathizers similarly celebrated the defeat of ALABAMA by naming the Sierra Nevada pass Kearsage.
To protect the area, some 17,000 Californians were brought into military service.
Practically all enlistees in the army except for 500 sent to Massachusetts as cavalry, served on the western front to thwart Southern incursions and keep peace among the Indians, but as was obvious from the Alabama Hills, there was strong pro-southern persuasions which demanded military force to counter.
Secessionist “hot heads” were located in Los Angeles, San Bernardino and El Monte which led to counter-steps of stifling the free press and suspension of the Writ of Habeus Corpus which were tolerated by the general populace.
Those “hot heads” were not slumbering malcontents. A real plot to seize the California gold shipments was discovered and thwarted with the seizure of the ship, J.M. CHAPMAN, in San Francisco Bay by the USS CYANE, revenue officers and San Francisco police. A like effort was thwarted by seizure of the SS SAN SALVADOR.
Late in the war, local secessionists in California made attempts to seize gold and silver for the Confederacy.
In early 1864, Rufus Henry Ingram, formerly with Quantrill’s Raiders, arrived in Santa Clara County and with Tom Poole (formerly a member of the crew of the J. M. Chapman), organized local Knights of the Golden Circle and commanded them in what became known as Captain Ingram’s Partisan Rangers.
In the Bullion Bend Robbery they robbed two stagecoaches near Placerville of their silver and gold, leaving a letter explaining they were not bandits but carrying out a military operation to raise funds for the Confederacy.
Also in early 1864, secessionist Judge George Gordon Belt, a rancher and former alcalde in Stockton, organized a group of partisan rangers including John Mason and “Jim Henry” and sent them out to recruit more men and pillage the property of Union men in the countryside.
For the next two years the Mason Henry Gang, as they became known, posed as Confederate partisan rangers but acted as outlaws sullying Southern honor, committing robberies, thefts and murders in the southern San Joaquin Valley, Santa Cruz County, Monterey County, Santa Clara County, and in counties of Southern California.
However, despite all these efforts no captured gold was ever sent to the Confederacy.
So, I really do wonder what my great-grandfather was up to during a decade of his life which just happens to correspond to the Civil War period.
My grandfather had some solid intuitions about his father’s involvement in the Confederacy in some way, before he settled into homesteading.
As a boy, he remembers that great-grandfather, who died about 1924 at the ripe old age of 94, although tight-lipped about any personal involvement, remained keenly interested in news, books, magazines from veterans’ associations the Reconstruction Era South the rest of his life, criticized the Radical Republicans in Congress and their punitive occupation of the South, and later quietly expressed sympathy for “The Lost Cause of the Confederacy”.
And he also remembered meeting some of great-grandfather’s old friends and families who came out for a visit from Missouri around 1900.
There’s a lot more California Confederate history, such as how agents for Quantrell’s Raiders (Frank & Jesse James were famous members) showed up in Santa Clara County prepared to steal gold for the Confederacy, and the skirmishes between federalized Union militias, military occupation, and martial law of Southern California trying to control “hothead” Confederate partisans.
In the Great Depression Era & the Oklahoma Dust Bowl, in the 1930s there was a massive migration of poor White farmers from the Ozark Mountain (Plateau) region of Missouri, Arkansas, Oklahoma and the southeast corner of Kansas to the agricultural regions of California.
They were all historically Southerners (Kansas had Northern Confederate sympathizers called Copperheads), with solid Scottish, Irish, English ancestries, many of whom were descendents poor emigrants planted during earlier waves of the Appalachia diaspora into the Ozarks.
Some of the California “White Supremacist gangs” which cling to Confederate symbols that get the DOJ, ADL and SPLC’s knickers in a bunch, are descendents of the Southerners from the Ozarks as well as from earlier British & European immigration waves to America since the 1600s, living in the conservative Red County areas that were historically known for Confederate sympathizers and militants.
And speaking of Scotland, I may as well get the bratach na h-Alba (Banner o Scotland, also known as St Andrew’s Cross or the Saltire) while I’m at it, because a lot of Southerners are Scots or Scots-Irish, particularly from Appalachia.
Granddad was buried in Central California with his bagpipes in 1974.
And to complement it all, I’ll try to find Papaflessas’ Standard, a revolutionary Orthodox monk and a key figure of the Greek Revolution, who went about the country preaching the ideal of freedom from the Turks.
The 1821 War of Greek Independence started in The Peleponnese. My paternal grandmother came to San Francisco from Mani, Peleponnese, in 1898 which was a part of ancient Sparta. My paternal grandfather fought in the 30-Day War of 1893 between Greece and Turkey in the century long strugge for Greek independence, and was a Turkish POW for 18 months.
To really mix it up and irritate the Woke, Jew-loving, culture-and-history cancelling, Ukraine-worshipping jackasses and feds, I just may buy a Novorossiya Confederacy flag, and fly it from my porch. https://www.flagsonline.it/novorossiya

Me and the California High Country Bois getting ready for war with the feds.
As you can see, there are Californians, and then there are Californians.
Love from Deplorableland, Heartland America.
What a terrific addition to my Confederate flag, KathJ, “a Novorossiya Confederacy flag”.
Got me a flagpole some years ago with the intention of flying my Southern Confederate flag, now, the two-headed Eagle should compliment the “Stars and Bars” well.
When Holy Russia’s task is successfully concluded both flags will fly in Robert E’s ancestral South Shropshire!
Whilst I’m free of leg irons!
