The unexpected, if symbolic, truth about Schiavo is in "Schindler's Geist, Or, Le Fantôme De Pâques".

Avedon Carol at The Sideshow observes that our most calculatingly "moderate" big media blogger, coming down from the linkage high of his recent fix and wanting a larger dose of being the hot target of distaff attention, "goes back to the well again!" Should anyone pay any more attention to this waffling link-troller, or should we just let him go ahead and turn blue? Two apt quotes from very different corners:
Ainsi, parce que tu es tiède et que tu n'es ni froid ni bouillant, je vais te vomir de ma bouche.
--Apocalypse 3:16
Warum ich Einiges mehr weiss? Warum ich überhaupt so klug bin? Ich habe nie über Fragen nachgedacht, die keine sind, -- ich habe mich nicht verschwendet.
--Nietzsche, Ecce Homo


Molly Ivins once wrote that she didn't support gun control because she hated guns, but because she just liked to see knife fights. It looks like she would be very happy in Johannesburg. This Blog Is Full Of Crap spotted this news at "Fighting Crime the 11th Century Way":
Tighter gun ownership laws are pushing South Africans to buy crossbows, spears, swords, knives and pepper sprays to protect themselves from violent crime. ...

Men are buying machetes to fight off hijackers or crossbows to shoot people breaking into their property, while women are more likely to buy a pepper spray, he said.

One customer successfully fought off three hijackers with a machete, slashing one, he said. A beggar had bought a pepper spray so he could fight off those who tried to steal his shoes as he slept on the street.

With some homeowners worried about prosecution if they kill intruders, the crossbow is particularly popular because of its silence and the difficulty of tracing the firer from forensic evidence, he said.
Personally, I have always preferred the sai.


The latest blog to permalink me (which is the only way to get me to permalink you back, hint, hint) is a brand new one called Blogadactyl. He lists both me and the heterosexually patriotic Jesus' General under "Treason", which may imply that he is some kind of objectively pro-Democratic lefty. We'll keep a sharp eye on him just in case.

I borrow Pournelle's phrase for this story, spotted by Sheila Lennon of Subterranean Homepage News:
With more than 1,000 genes and 160 million base pairs of DNA, the X looms like a giant next to the stunted Y chromosome that produces males. The Y chromosome -- 78 genes, 23 million DNA subunits --was sequenced in 2003. ...

Until mammals began to replace reptiles and rule the Earth about 300 million years ago, the X and Y were of equal size and able to swap genetic material.

But over eons, the male-producing Y has been riddled by mutations, and the trading of genes trailed off. The chromosome withered away in size, and its function became limited to establishing maleness, ordering the building of male sexual organs and conferring the ability to produce sperm.

The X acquired more responsibilities and genes while the Y "slowly but surely dropped off the face of the Earth ... Although it contains a few important genes, it's almost like the appendix of the human genome."


The folks at catallaxy caught this Steve Sailer post of a different and better world:
Following once again in the footsteps of Robert S. McNamara, Paul Wolfowitz, having gotten us into a land war in Asia, has now been named by President Bush to head the World Bank. Also, Wolfowitz signed a deal to make a tell-all confessional documentary in 2027 with director Errol Morris to be entitled "The Bog of War: Eleven Lessons from the Life of Paul D. Wolfowitz." ...

In other news, Bush named as Wolfowitz's replacement as #2 man at the Pentagon actor Robert Blake, saying, "We didn't think Baretta would be available, but when you have a chance to hire a man of action who isn't slowed down by petty rules, you've gotta go for it." Also, Bush noted that UN Ambassador nominee John Bolton's replacement as head of arms control at the State Dept. will be Ted Nugent. "He only eats meat he kills himself, so The Nuge obviously has steady control over his firearms," noted Bush.


The Oziacs at Troppo Armadillo (who claim to be "centrists" but admit to naming their blog after a line from Texas populist Jim HIghtower) are understandably concerned about the oppressive Muslim theocratic regime just to their north:
Indonesians will be barred from kissing in public under new laws criticised by human rights groups as draconian. ...

Included in the draft legislation is a 10-year jail sentence and fines of more than $40,000 for "locking lips" in public or dancing erotically. ...

Those spreading Communism or mocking the Government would face 10 years' jail.
So these four offenses will all merit the same period of imprisonment. Uprighteous conservatives might well agree with such strictures for the first three, but the last one is a direct threat to me personally. If I could not mock the government then I might as well just pour honey and peanut butter on my keyboard and hang it outside as a bird feeder. Such gross oppression cannot be tolerated. Does the Cour Pénale Internationale forbid censorship of iconoclasts? If so, maybe Our Noble Lame Duck should reconsider taking part. If the Democrats ever win again, being able to satirize them will be a necessity in self-defense.


From her observation post in Zürich, Rashunda Tramble spotted this bizarre tale of a homosexual necrophiliac duck:
The unfortunate duck apparently had hit the building in full flight at a height of about three metres from the ground. Next to the obviously dead duck, another male mallard ... mounted the corpse and started to copulate, with great force ....

"Rather startled, I watched this scene from close quarters behind the window until 19.10 hours during which time (75 minutes) I made some photographs and the mallard almost continuously copulated his dead congener. ..."

... Moeliker was informed of an American case involving a squirrel and a dead partner, although in this case it is not known whether the necrophilia observed was homosexual or not as the victim had been run over by a truck shortly before the incident.


As if this day required another excuse besides green beer to get sloshed, Elkit in Wonderland discovered an entire site devoted to Saint Clinton. Don't look at the icons while actually imbibing.


Well, why do you think Our Noble Lame Duck appointed Wolfie, anyway? Obviously the bloginators just don't get it. Maureen at Blog or Not? muses "the World Bank doesn't have the capability to start wars." One word, Maureen: Yet.


It is an ivory tower intellectual's version of the Stockholm Syndrome. Hating someone we are attacking, a foolish leftist feels he must justify even our most extreme actions, in order to quiet his own conscience. Suddenly he starts using his wits, usually employed in helping criminals escape justice, to rationalize policies which he would be outraged over if they were directed at his own. He cannot mislead us. We know he is not really on our side, and, come the entrenchment of authority here, his late-found sycophancy will not save him from arrest "and all that that implies".

Over at Crooked Timber, Kieran Healy has gotten upset over something he just heard on the news. His rant is at "Needles Under the Nails":
The effort to normalize torture proceeds on two fronts. The first comes up with scenarios where torture seems justified -- the ticking bomb case that we know and love. ... The second front in the pro-torture offensive is the effort to blur the distinction between torture and "mere" pressure or extreme interrogation. ... Here, for example, is Alan Dershowitz speaking in the news report:
When you torture somebody to death -- everybody would acknowledge that's torture. But placing a sterilized needle under somebody's fingernails for fifteen minutes, causing excruciating pain but no permanent physical damage -- is that torture?
Gee, I don't know, Alan. Let's find out! Why don't you drop by this afternoon? I'll bring the needles and the bunsen burner, you bring Alberto Gonzales. Or better yet -- why not grab your daughter, if you have one, and we’ll get the empirical evidence from her.
In the comments someone added "... if you're debating the details of the torture, then the torturers have already won." Well, of course we have, and not just because one of our own is now the national abogado. First, unlike that fatuous embarrassment to his law school, we don't play silly games with words trying to claim that whether something is torture depends on the meaning of "permanent". Second, we know what we want and why, which focusses our efforts. We do not care whether torture "works". Obtaining information is not why we use it. Our opponents lack the imagination to believe what we say in very plain language. How many times do we have to explain this?
"How does one man assert his power over another, Winston? ... By making him suffer. Obedience is not enough. Unless he is suffering, how can you be sure that he is obeying your will and not his own? Power is in inflicting pain and humiliation."

In honor of St. Pat's day, you should make your children watch all six Leprechaun movies, so they don't live with the mistaken impression that the little green guys are nice.


This scientific quietus of one walking fallacy was found at Language Log.
This recent interview with Jacques Derrida reminds me of a parlor game that a colleague of mine claims to have played, back in the day when it was easier to find academics who took Derrida seriously.

My colleague would open one of Derrida's works to a random page, pick a random sentence, write it down, and then (above or below it) write a variant in which positive and negative were interchanged, or a word or phrase was replaced with one of opposite meaning. He would then challenge the assembled Derrida partisans to guess which was the original and which was the variant. The point was that Derrida's admirers are generally unable to distinguish his pronouncements from their opposites at better than chance level....

Consider the following random phrase from Of Grammatology, Chapter 2: "difference is never in itself a sensible plenitude".

My colleague's technique produces variants like "difference is always in itself a sensible plenitude," "difference is never a sensible plenitude in relation to other things," "similarity is never in itself a sensible plenitude," "difference is never in itself a sensible emptiness," and "difference is never in itself an imperceptible plenitude."

Or my personal favorite variant, "similarity is always in itself an imperceptible emptiness," which I feel is a great improvement over the original.


Since I somehow missed, oh woe!!, participating in the Leftacle of Estrogen Week, I will assauge my imaginary regret over that (I don't get guilt feelings, I incite them) by displaying a quiz found on the site of a leftist woman writer, Chris Lombardi of Book of Days. The title it assigned to me was marginally appropriate, since I prefer "magical realism" to more dull reality-based books. (We should all follow Our Noble Lame Duck and create our own private new world, and not just in fiction.)

I discovered Marquez's delightful Cien años de solidad years ago from a reference by Greil Marcus, but if it wasn't for the portrayed-as-inevitable tragedy of the good guy, my favorite would be his El otoño del patriarca. This particular result only gives me chills, and not in a good way.

You're Love in the Time of Cholera!
by Gabriel Garcia Marquez

Like Odysseus in a work of Homer, you demonstrate undying loyalty by sleeping with as many people as you possibly can. But in your heart you never give consent! This creates a strange quandary of what love really means to you. On the one hand, you've loved the same person your whole life, but on the other, your actions barely speak to this fact. Whatever you do, stick to bottled water. The other stuff could get you killed.

Take the Book Quiz at the Blue Pyramid.


In honor of today's holiday, Doug McDaniel at "Who Was Saint Patrick?" cites the History Channel on his biography:
Although his father was a Christian deacon, it has been suggested that he probably took on the role because of tax incentives and there is no evidence that Patrick came from a particularly religious family.
Now your first thought might be that this is just the typical Marxist assumption that everyone's economic interests determine their ideology, or at least their "opiate" of choice. In other words, if the early rulers in Britain had given tax breaks to those who still considered trees sacred, then Patrick might have converted Ireland to worshipping oaks instead. This misses the real lesson of this story, which should be that fiscal policy can affect culture.

For centuries the Muslim rulers of Spain allowed Jews and Christians to practice their own religion, as long as they paid an extra tax. This presumably prompted many "conversions", just as the later Christian Inquisition produced many "conversos" who were still secretly practicing their old rites. Hypocrisy may not be the tribute vice owes to virtue, but it may be what it owes to an enlightened crusading tax policy.

Is it too late to get the interim government in Iraq to give tax breaks to endangered religions there, thus encouraging the return of all those Christians, many of them educated professionals, who fled to more Christian-friendly nations like Lebanon? Of course, this provision might be exploited by cynical jokesters, but that is a small price to pay for spreading tolerance, even if it means subsidizing Jedis.

Democracy seems to be breaking out everywhere else on the planet, even without Urosevich's high-tech methods. Even some liberals have not only thrown in the towel, but gone beyond their teachers in innovative ways to praise the administration's policies. How else could you explain the complete reversal of one leftist blogger, Tim Dunlop of The Road To Surfdom? He now finds justification for preemption even in meteorology:
Check out this weather forecast for Iraq. Notice that it is fine and that it is getting better for the next four days. Can anyone now deny that invasion was the correct thing to do? Why won't liberals just admit they were wrong and give George W. Bush the credit he deserves? Come on, liberals! Get real! It's going to be 74F on Thursday! What are you going to say then, you weiners?!
You can see his chart for Baghdad at "Weather I'm right". Welcome to the winning side, Tim. With this kind of initiative you'll be a star with links from Insty in no time.


As I've said before, I follow the "Know Your Enemy" approach, and read more leftist blogs than rightys, partly because I already get our own talking points every morning by email (aren't you on the list? sorry, you must have failed the security check), and partly because the illogical knots they tie themselves into are just plain amusing. I do miss our anti-Hamlet all-out invective over there, though, because their usual failure even to fight back, much less take the offensive, is so redolent of low self-esteem that it makes arguing with them seem like dynamiting fish in a barrel (yes, that is a mixed metaphor, intentionally done to be excessive).

I must report that one of them seems to have spilled some jalapeños in his pablum. Lately The Rude Pundit has been on a verbal roll. The good thing is that such intense anger won't be able to confine itself to conservatives. Soon we can look forward to his usual liberal circular firing squad tactic of turning on his own, but this time he won't just be throwing spit wads. Of course, he is totally wrong about everything he says, but at least he says it like he means it. Here are a few of his recent gems which I would have been proud to have devised myself, only pointed at very different targets:
If Tom DeLay were your dog, you'd've put that fucker down a long, long time ago. ... Early on, when Tom DeLay was shredding the cushions and gnawing the moulding in your house, you thought if you had him neutered it would calm him down. You thought if you took him to training it might work. Hell, you even tried a choke chain. But some dogs don't give a damn about neutering, training, electric shock, nothing.
Sauerbrey was joined in the U.S. delegation at the UNCSW Conference by Janet Parshall, who hosts a popular conservative Christian radio program, Janet Parshall's America, which promotes a vision of "America" that would make Cotton Mather say, "Man, don't you people have any fuckin' fun?" before giving up the cloth and taking up the moonshine and fuckin' syphilitic whores and lovin' the itchin' 'cause it makes him feel alive.
David Horowitz is a sick, sick fuck, so enthralled at the smell of his own bile-infused vomit that he wants everyone to enjoy the piquant odor, driven so insane by the polar opposition of his youthful liberalism and his older self's fascism that, if it weren't for the Internet and Fox "News," he'd be curled into a ball, shitting himself on a cold bench in Harvard Square, screaming at the trees.
With this kind of venom dispensed daily, I have to think there is hope that this misguided soul can be brought to see the light of righteousness. It is usually much easier to turn a vituperator into a conservative, than it is to turn a typical mush-mouthed liberal into a vituperator.


Unfortunately, I didn't think of this in time to pass it on to The Rovinator before Gulf Preemption II. Instead of hyping WMDs, all Our Noble Lame Duck had to do was say our invasion was for the purpose of establishing international gun control. This would have assured leftist support. I was inspired to this strategy just today by seeing how his anti-gun fury reduced one lefty blogger to sputtering wordlessness. The provocation was this AP photo caption:
Carey McWilliams, right, who is legally blind, and his wife, Tori, are photographed at their home in Fargo, N.D., Friday, Feb. 25, 2005, in front of the target he used to pass his weapons test.
You can find the picture at turn that shit UP's posting "This Is So Insane I Can't Even Think Of A Caption".

In truth, the publicity over Carey's passing his shooting exam is just about the best deterrent I could imagine to anyone trying to break into their home. An armed householder who can see is dangerous enough to a burglar, but wouldn't you be downright terrified at the thought of a sightless one who knows how to fire a rifle? His warning shots will be at least as likely to hit you as his aimed ones. It's a triumph of self-defense. Obviously this anti-gun blogger isn't familiar with all those movies about Zatôichi.

The granddaughter of Italian wartime dictator Benito Mussolini went on hunger strike on Monday after being barred from next month's regional elections over signature forgeries.

Alessandra Mussolini, founder of the far-right Social Alternative movement, is appealing the ban in a Rome court.

More than 800 signatures on her petition to stand in the election for president of Lazio region have been declared false. The list allegedly includes names of the dead and others whose existence was dubious, such as people who gave their birth date as Feb. 31. ...

To draw attention to her case, Mussolini stopped eating, although she admitted she was unprepared for the ordeal which lay ahead. "I had stomach pain yesterday, so I didn't really eat enough beforehand"....

"This is scandalous ... If other politicians are excluded like this in the future, you can imagine what could happen -- a coup," Mussolini said.
Another chip off the old chopping block crumbles to sawdust. Her grandpa believed coups were a good thing, if they overthrew wimpy liberal governments the way he did. Benito would be turning in his grave, if he hadn't been hung upside down by his own people in 1945. Of course, if we believe Niven and Pournelle, he got another job afterwards....


They never let wishful thinking get in the way of common sense. The latest example is the Israel Defense Forces decision that "incoming recruits and soldiers who play Dungeons and Dragons are unfit for elite units." The army says “They're detached from reality and susceptible to influence,” and are "automatically given a low security clearance". To me, this only makes sense.

Sadly, this policy has caused some fair weather-conservative gamers to actually become single-issue civil libertarians. A terrible example of such shallow friends of martial authority comes from a blogger heretofore unknown as a rabble rouser against military security, who posted about this Israeli prejudice against fantasy role players. The Ace of Spades went so far as to pilfer that old leftist litany of Niemöller's, turning it to his own selfish ends:
When they came for the Star Trek conventioneers, I said nothing, because I never bothered to pick up even a coversational-level of Klingon.

And when they came for the model railroad enthusiasts, still I kept silent, because I just never felt like dealing with all that glue and cotton-swabs.

And when they came for the massively-multiplayer on-line role-playing gamers, I yet held my tongue, because ....
One more true patriot sells out the administration's best ally in the middle east, just because he likes silly board games. Go shake your head over how low a good blogger can sink when his own ox is gored at "And Now They're Persecuting Me".

A rather silly item in the press inspires The Minor Fall, The Major Lift to go, like, all Edgar Allan Poe on the spectre-haunted protagonist. Quite properly he replaces the tomb with a dumpster. Delight at the whole lovely piece at JEAN-GEORGES VONGERICHTEN SAYS, "POWERFUL AND FRIGHTENING... IT WILL KEEP YOU AWAKE AT NIGHT.".

Out of the generosity of my heart, I've given some instruction in tactics to the clueless liberals, over at The American Street at "Why Liberals Lose, Part 2".

Friday, March 04, 2005

Misdirection is also very important in magic. ... You have to make people believe that the object is in your hand and that you're doing magic movements ... While you do this (the misdirection) you are doing your dirty work with the other hand.
Someone not in prison for statutory rape is now claiming that Our Noble Lame Duck has authorized plans to invade Iran in June. Well, of course he has. He's also authorized plans to invade lots of other countries at lots of other times, even coalition members like Australia. What if a revanchist communist coup seized Iceland, disrupting our submarine detection network? It's just routine to be prepared for anything. Remember our great victory over Cuban construction crews in Grenada.

More recently the big noise has all been about Syria. Gullible minds think our demands for their withdrawal from Lebanon are the first step to invading Damascus. The more cynical think those are just a way of distracting people from our planned attack on Tehran. Those two capitals, being full of both types, have now agreed to a joint defense pact. This misalliance of secular Marxists and theocratic Muslims will work about as well as the Hitler-Stalin pact. (Hint of coming attractions: Just as in World War II, we will cooperate with one to destroy the other. It will surprise the world when we pick the Iranian side. Why them? Those heirs of the ancient Persians agree with our current administration that the government should enforce the will of God upon the benighted masses; the different name we give the deity is a minor point that will be dealt with later.) While Beltway boneheads worry over which of Iraq's relatively harmless (to us) neighbors we are secretly gunning for next, we actually get set to deal with a real threat right here within spitting distance.

The astute could see clues, of course. What is the most loyal and patriotic network we have? Why then would they cast a foreigner to play federal agent Jack Bauer on "24"? Let me reveal that next season he is scheduled to be fighting a plot by a crazed environmentalist professor to explode a "dirty bomb" at the University of Michigan. During filming there this summer, as the campus streets are filled with camera crews and phony Homeland Security officers (thus causing the real ones to let down their guard), an actual dirty bomb will go off. This will not only eliminate one hotbed of radicalism, but prevailing winds should cause massive casualties in the Democratic stronghold of Detroit. Between them these two excisions by radiation will push Michigan into the Republican camp. More important is the finger of blame that will then be pointed at our next target, and the popular anger that will be stirred against them just as it was by Pearl Harbor.

See the connection yet?

Remember that Ann Arbor is only a short distance from an unguarded border that radioactive material could be easily smuggled across. By whom? Condie will be going to the United Nations afterwards to explain our reaction to them. She'll denounce Kiefer Sutherland as, not a victim, but an insidious suicide bomber for his native country, Canada. Yes, we've set him up to take the fall, posthumously. He's a convenient Marinus van der Lubbe for our time, since he's from the right place and also has ties to those traitors in Hollywood. But let's be frank: we could have used any number of other Canuckistars as shills. We chose him partly for revenge over his father's role in that un-American movie M.A.S.H.

Why invade, for the third and charmed time, that stronghold of traitorous loyalists to the British crown who fled North from our own glorious revolution? First there's the money. Various heavily-contributing real estate interests are drooling at the prospect of selling off plenty of occupied land, when our global warming project really kicks in and the permafrost melts across the Northwest Territories. (Melting ice will also drown a lot of very blue port cities here at home, another political plus, but that is only a side benefit.)

Next, there's the military necessity.
Condi Rice has announced the delay of a planned trip to Canada. The official reason: because of scheduling conflicts; unofficially (and through sources that leak like sieves), Bush is pissed off because Canada refuses to go along with his beloved missile shield defense program that involved -- and, by logical necessity, must involve -- an American presence in Canadian air space. ...

The Canadian public is overwhelmingly critical of the War in Iraq and of the Bush administration in general. Bush's missile defense shield program was particularly unpopular, largely because Canadians did not believe assurances that it would never be used offensively and they did believe it was being rammed through the Canadian Parliament by Bush and by Prime Minister Martin aka Bush's poodle.

Of course it is intended to be used offensively. Even the rigged "demonstrations" keep showing that it can't stop incoming ICBMs. Why keep building it, then, unless we are going to use it? As Eastasia China keeps getting more of our bonds in their hands, we will soon face the choice of submitting to their economic blackmail, or of cancelling that debt by the simple expedient of cancelling the bondholder. Obviously, we can't let this bunch of figure skaters prevent that by denying our rockets passage over their frozen wheat fields.

Here's more radical ranting, from Vive le Canada:
It's now clear how the Bush administration sees things: Canadian sovereignty exists only at its pleasure. If we do what Washington wants, we retain our sovereignty. If we don't, all bets are off.

... U.S. ambassador ... Paul Cellucci noted that Washington would simply deploy its anti-missile system over Canadian airspace anyway ...

Canadian advocates of missile defence have long argued that joining the scheme is the best way to protect our sovereignty — the logic apparently being that Washington is going to intrude into our airspace anyway, so it's better if we look like that's what we wanted all along. It's only rape if you resist.

Fortunately the Martin government, under enormous pressure from the public, the NDP and the Bloc Québécois, ignored this convoluted logic.
Meanwhile the commonwealth commies have sensed the threat:
Major boost in Canadian military spending, following years of cut-backs

Defence and homeland security figure among the major items for increased Canadian government spending in the 2005 budget presented to Parliament Wednesday by Finance Minister Ralph Goodale. The finance minister promised that, over the next five years, Canada's military would benefit from "the largest increase in defence spending in 20 years....

Domestically, the budget provides ... for increased security on the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Seaway, which border the United States....
They know where the real danger is coming from. And, just as the Syriacs and Iranioids are combining forces against the Great Satan, so are the brain-dead white males across the Atlantic learning to link up with the loathsome lacrosse players lurking across the Great Lakes. Germany's Spiegel just ran this expansionist call at "It's Time For Canada to Join the EU":
Canada, for example, makes a surprise appearance on the German editorial pages on Thursday. With the country that Americans often refer to, mockingly, as the "Great White North" looking more and more like a member of the European Union each day, editorialists are having a field day over Ottawa's decision to snub Washington on its planned "Son of Star Wars" missile defense system.

...Canada and the US -- a paring that has become increasingly difficult since the Iraq war. But Baghdad wasn't the first fight in this power marriage. "In the 1970s, Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau annoyed the US with his Cuba policies, by establishing diplomatic relations with China (before the US) and by opening the country to Vietnam draft dodgers,"....

But in recent years, Canada has promoted the International Criminal Court and ratified the Kyoto Protocol, putting Washington in a "huff." "Since Bush's election, both societies seem to be diverging," it adds. "It's become easier than ever for Canadians to define their identity as the opposite of that of the America of the Republicans." Ottawa long ago did away with the death penalty, it has strict gun control laws and the list of diverging societal values is growing. Now Canada wants to introduce same sex marriages, which the US has rejected. And unlike Washington, which has a zero-tolerance policy on drugs, Ottawa is planning to decriminalize small quantities of marijuana. A recent poll found that 33 percent of Canadians believe faith plays an important role in their daily lives compared to 60 percent of Americans.
This article (with a photo caption that adds "It's time to begin EU accession talks") demonstrates not just German greed, but the widening Eurocentric cultural cancer which is already leaking across the border to states like Kerry's Taxachusetts and Howie's Virmount. We could already see that, however, just by looking at their cunningly bilingual national anthem. While the English sounds innocuously defensive, with "we stand on guard for thee", the version in that "freedom" language is more revealing: "Car ton bras sait porter l'épée, Il sait porter la croix!" This talk of an arm not only ready to wield the sword, but to carry the cross, is cleverly coded crusading Catholic propaganda. "Et ta valeur, de foi trempée" only drives the point home about how "steeped in faith" is their "valour", as they misspell it up there. Yes, because our forefathers chickened out and left a polyglot Papist foothold on the continent in Quebec, the forces of the Pope, that anti-war, anti-execution, pro-welfare state sleeper agent of the old communist regime in Poland, are undermining our underpinnings. They are clearly planning to use the Mass as a Weapon of Destruction. No wonder The Ketchup Consort was so popular next door.

All of this was bothersome, but on the back burner. Why move up our timetable to take over these Arctic terrorists this summer? You probably never saw this here, because our media, with most of their profits now coming from broadcasting licenses controlled by the powers that be, prudently gives short shrift to charges of conspiracy. Those shivering socialists up above Lake Erie are not so constrained. On February 26 the Toronto Globe and Mail ran this lead about the late Hunter S. Thompson:
Hunter telephoned me on Feb. 19, the night before his death. He sounded scared. It wasn't always easy to understand what he said, particularly over the phone, he mumbled, yet when there was something he really wanted you to understand, you did. He'd been working on a story about the World Trade Center attacks and had stumbled across what he felt was hard evidence showing the towers had been brought down not by the airplanes that flew into them but by explosive charges set off in their foundations. Now he thought someone was out to stop him publishing it: "They're gonna make it look like suicide," he said. "I know how these bastards think . . ."
Yes, the rest of the story, only available to subscribers, does admit this is only how the writer wishes the tale had played out, so that his leftist hero would not have died in vain, but they know full well nobody down here would bother trying to convert currencies just to read that disclaimer. This was a clever plant to fan the flames of paranoia against U.S. leadership during wartime. Sure enough, it has stirred tinfoil hatters to switch to larger sizes. Look at Prison Planet ("Now check out this February 25 Associated Press story about Thompson's death. Sounds a lot like a professional hit with a silencer."), or Tyranny Response Unit News ("Shortly thereafter, a counselor with Aspen Counseling Center, a local organization that provides support for victims at crime scenes, arrived at the residence. ... Prince Bandar and the Aspen Medical Foundation have a cozy relationship. What if we follow the money?"), or Conspiracy Planet, which points to an even darker possibility:
... Thompson was working on an expose of the homosexual pedophile underground which permeates the MSM, Washington, DC, & BOTH political parties, a la the Franklin Coverup scandal of the 80's & 90's.

The danger of the Jeff Gannon scandal becoming the next dot to connect the BusShes to Franklin is causing panic among the MSM & DC, according to Skolnick.

Skolnick claims that Gannon AKA Gluckert is really Johnny Gosch, who was kidnapped as a child in 1982 & pressed into a pedophile prostitution ring which was directly connected to Franklin. SS advises to google "Johnny Gosch" & be amazed at the results.
Clearly we cannot allow this kind of disinformation to continue to be stirred up by that Confederation of Evil. Napoleon and Hitler both demonstrated the fallacy of invading the far North in winter, so this will be a summer campaign. It will also be a jobs program, since we will need to build lots of domestic internment camps for the many Canadians resident here. And you short-sighted liberals thought Michelle Malkin was only paving the way for rounding up Arabs.
Here are some things to keep in mind when doing misdirection: The audience will look where you look - This is always true. If you're not looking at your pocket, they will not be inclined to look at it, unless you look at it.
