Egyptian Generals Dissolve Parliament Suspend Constitution

Fox news is reporting that Egypt’s new military government has dissolved parliament and suspended the Constitution. No other news available at this time. So much for that freedom and democracy that was on its way after Mubarak’s expulsion. Meanwhile, Yemeni police clashed Sunday with anti-government protesters staging a third-consecutive day of demonstrations calling for political…

That’s It For The Dalai Lama Then

I have been a half hearted supporter of this guy while he trekked all over the world trying to muster public opinion in support of the Chinese Communists restoring the sovereignty of Tibet to Tibetans. Half hearted because I have never understood his rejection of violence. If you don’t fight, you are defeated by those…

The Lights Are Going Out all Over The West

This is an excerpt from Geert Wilder’s speech given on the opening day of his new trial on “hate speech” charges in Amsterdam. He is referring to Europe of course, but the wider fact is that the same repugnant forces are at work all over the western world, and manipulating people through their control of…

Egypt and Mubarak Not That Simple

I was staggered at fellow blogger David Farrar’s gauche support for the overthrow of Egypt’s Hosni Mubarak. So many people seem to see events there from a kind of fairy tale prospective. An oppressed citizenry finally rising to shake off a cruel and ruthless dictator. Can we be a bit more rational? Funny how things…

New Internet To Foil Government Shutdowns

Even though they’ve put some good stuff out there, I’m no fan of Wikileaks. That said, they’ve apparently helped initiate a great plan to counter government control of the internet as threatened by Obama’s jack booted goons in recent months. According to New Scientist, the internet basically relies on 13 DNS root servers scattered across…

Daily Mail UK- Assange Will Be Arrested Today

I’m not sure whether I’m happy to see this creep arrested on such charges as they’re talking about. Evidently in Sweden, if a man has sex with a woman, and leads her to believe he is using a condom when he isn’t, or uses a non-functioning condom, (ie ripped or burst) that is some kind…

Prepare For Leftist Blame Shifting

The global economy is in for a rough ride. What went wrong? My view is that this coming recession has been building for decades. Ever since Progressivism became a popular political credo. As more and more Progressives entered politics, and garnered support by penalising enterprise, growing government and buying votes with money that really didn’t…
