Protest

I am protesting against lazy use of English language.

I will not “Protest lazy English” because that phrase is an example of the lazy English language usage that I am protesting against.

The problem with using the verb “To protest” without any qualification, is that you don’t know whether it is a protest against, or a protest for the matter.

“People are protesting wages.” Does it mean people are protesting against low wages, against high wages, for higher wages, for lower wages, or simply for or against having wages at a all. The sentance is wholly inadequate.

Cut-down telegraphic intransitive twitter-squeeze-to-fit Americanese verb-use is deeply annoying to me. I should write someone about it. LOL (in Britain we write to someone – well at a least for now, until the laziness reaches us on that one).

Another linguistic laziness I really dislike is the contraction of “cause for concern” (which was the only way you could say it back in the day) to “concerning.”

“That is really concerning me” NO! This is ambiguous because it doesn’t tell me if it causes me worry or if it is a matter that is applicable to me, or both!

“That is a really giving me cause for concern” YES!

At the rate lazy language is spreading in the UK it will devolve back to grunts before you can say “Ug!” This was of course caused by the BBC letting non-public school educated people (Americans read private school) into broadcasting, so the inadequately educated became our role models. My English is not perfect, I was not privately educated, but at least I care, and I try to get it right.

I guess that makes me an elitist. Well I do prefer aspiration to exasperation.

What if reality is really a giant pinball game?

Never mind the matrix, if you can get security clearance (you will need a genuine reason like attending some sort of event there) take a walk through the Genome Campus at Hinxton, Cambridge, England.

There are numerous chromed spheres, each slightly tweaked to represent various stages of life. The one with a hole represents the stage at which it becomes apparent that we are coelenterates, a biological taxonomical classification meaning we have a gut that opens at the mouth and exits the other end.

The effect of this tableau of embryonic development is to make the long slopes, interspersed by post-modernist buildings, appear as a giant pinball machine, giving a slightly science-fiction sense of unease that things might just roll down and bowl one over or a huge flipper whack out of the sides.

Oldies like me will remember the blob thing in “The Prisoner” TV series. Well here in Hinxton Big brother definitely is watching and don’t even think what escaped chimera might just be lurking up the next level. Best enjoyed at dusk when it becomes eerily empty.

Elephant in the room!

Someone commented on my previous article to suggest that I am against collective defence (NATO) and to point out that NATO offered to defend the USA and Turkey. I think the answer that comment deserves expands into something more worthy of a post rather than just a response in the comments section.

The thing is, UK and US will mutually defend each other without need for NATO, as they did in WW2. US likes UK because it pays its way in defence and because it is not the source of the defence problems which actually has been (Elephant in the room time!) EUROPE all along – for instance WW2 Hitler being a European problem, one of several problems coming from that direction I could use as an example.

More recently Germany opened its doors to huge loads of migrants thus providing easy access into Europe for them on their journey towards the UK, which is where they really want to come. Ask just about any illegal migrant and you will hear that UK is the number one destination they want. That is because UK is a nicer place than Europe and even the poorest most ill-educated person in the most seemingly God-forsaken and remote places in Africa knows it, period. The people that least want to acknowledge that Elephant in the room are the Germans, but they are happy to take advantage of it by opening their doors because they know a lot of the migrants won’t be stopping in Germany but will be making their way to Calais, hoping to come to the UK. Poor old France, dumped on by Germany again… LOL.

The problem with encouraging (by having open doors like Germany) lots of migrants from places afflicted with terrorism and even more places that are simply poor but not war zones, is it makes a nice easy route into Europe for terrorists. Unlike Europe, Mr Trump has sensibly closed off migration from several likely sources of terrorists while the problem of vetting can be sorted out. Mr Trump is not afraid to ACTUALLY DO SOMETHING ABOUT THE PROBLEMS despite the shrill bleating of the bleeding-heart liberals who are too stupid to realize that they, the bleeding-heart liberals, are exactly who the terrorists MOST want to kill.

As I said NATO is nothing without the US, the only other meaningful contributor that pays its way is the UK anyway. Germany has no nukes and France probably wouldn’t actually fight if it came to it anyway – for 43 years France foot-dragged on what it would do for NATO and so cannot be trusted to be of any use. Fortunately the UK is a far more defensible place than Europe, UK being an island, and because it pays its fair share has some half-decent defence kit, and of course a big friend across the pond.

That NATO ran to the defence of the USA was an aspect of the comment I also need to address. NATO offered to defend the USA after 9/11. Of course there was NOTHING NATO could do against asymmetric warfare terrorist acts as you can’t line up tanks and planes against lurking terrorists dispersed across several countries. So that was fairly safe offer to make. It also illustrates that where terrorism is concerned, NATO is indeed all but obsolete.

Mr Trump is not afraid to say we should fight terrorism with the bleeding-heart liberal gloves off. Shut the doors to them and don’t be afraid to let them know they will not be getting nice cups off coffee between gentle polite interrogations, rather that it will be as terrifying and painful for them as they want to make life for us, so they can be warned and know that we will fight them with whatever it takes to win.

Europe hides in the skirts of NATO and pretends it would fight for freedom, but lets look at what the German-sponsored proto-superstate really resembles. Does it look a little bit like the Napoleonic pan-European superstate that was such a bastion of freedom (not) that Britain (with help from Russia) had to rescue Europeans FROM. Does it look a little like Hitler’s pan-European superstate that the UK (with help from Russia and the US ) had to rescue Europeans FROM. Now Germany opened its doors to streams of migrants providing a route for terrorists into Europe and heading for the UK.

ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM TIME !!! Europe is the source of the threats both to the UK and to Europe itself. I would guess that at least 90% of the time Germany (include Austria) and France has had a hand in those threats – Habsburgs, Hitler, Napoleon, various ambitious French Kings, now the stupid EU wants to rule everyone and apparently punish anyone that wants to leave. Hmm, we’ll see how that turns out Herr Autohersteller.

Mr Trump is more relaxed than most about Russia. This will especially annoy the Franco-Germans who’s empires have come unstuck when they have annoyed the Russians. But let’s see if that need really worry the US/UK. Russia has always ended up on the side of the UK or didn’t actually go to war with the UK. e.g. Napoleon, WW1, WW2.

“What about the Cold War?” you cry! Hmm. Did Russia (also read USSR for Russia – much the same as far as UK needs go) actually go to war with us? No. Even during Cuba crisis, no nukes fell. Was that because of French and German troops? No. Was it because of US/UK nukes? More likely. In return for Russian help, we, the US/UK alliance, at Yalta conference, gave half of Europe to the Russians, hence the Berlin wall. It chopped an historically hostile Germany in half and kept them on the leash for a good number of decades. Now they are empire-building again – an empire called the EU. Britain wants no part of it, and clearly the US feels the same.

Turkey? Not part of the EU. Never will be. Needs handling with care as is East meets West and a geographical conduit for terrorists. But worth a decent £100m trade deal. Is part of NATO, but is useless as the threat is terrorism about which NATO cannot do anything and because is East meets West has to appease to some extent the terrorists. NATO defend Turkey offer? A bit of sabre-rattling to try and justify NATO existence. It was never going to happen and we knew it.

So, do I believe in collective defence. Maybe. Do I think NATO is effective collective defence, no. Do I think NATO EVER WAS effective collective defence… not so much really. Do I think amalgamations (like the EU and NATO) with the countries that CAUSE the defence problems (France and Germany) by the countries that have really had in the end to sort out those awful wars (the US and UK) are a solution to those problems? Poppycock. Elitist NWO Freemason Illuminati call-it-what-you-will smoke and mirrors.

Russia is always presented as the big bogey-man, this suits the elitists and especially the EU-ropeans well. Mr Trump can see what anyone who looks at the record of outcomes can see. Russians always end up on the UK/US side, against the European war-makers, and hasn’t nuked us at any time ever because the US/UK is too strong to dare, NOT because of anything Europe has ever done or ever will as part of the imaginary alliance that never fought a real war and never will called NATO.

So far Mr Trump has said it like it really is and has taken real action to set in place real effective borders.

The UK also wants real effective border control, that is one of the reasons we are leaving the EU, before we are completely swamped by the stream of economic migrants they would like to offload onto us.

Refugees go to and remain in the nearest safe country. Refugees do not trek through numerous very safe countries to get to the one of their choice. That’s the deal and we, and the USA are now planning to stick to it like we are planning to stick to real borders and plain truths about the politics of this world. We plan to preserve the cultures we have and not be taken over by hoards or different people with different cultures from far away.

We will be having effective borders. We will be sticking to the 1951 refugee convention AND sorting out economic migrants from true refugees. We will not allow the envelope to be pushed, we will not allow our countries to be dissolved or changed by people not like us from outside or by people that do not share our traditional values from within. We are resetting our society back to it root values and tearing up the envelope pushing creeping so called progress of the bleeding-heart homogenized apologists for the illuminati.

Take note its Game Over – bleat as loudly as you like, the days of the politically correct fascism of the liberals is over. Western liberals be aware, your freedom is the situated freedom of sheep protected from the wolves by a big strong Shepherd who will kill the wolf before it kills you, so get back in your pen woolly thinkers.

Arm photo torpedoes and shields up Mr Worf!

NOTE in this stream of ranty undiplomatic invective you may find some nuggets of unpalatable truth. Also, humor is required when reading this. Other political opinions are available, but not on this blog. I like European food and European people, but I don’t want them or any other foreign people and cultures to outnumber British people in Britain. I like Germany and France a lot and have visited almost all countries in Europe numerous times. I could happily be French and live there although it’s not quite as nice as Britain. However I was born here in Britain and so were my ancestors back to 1196 on one side and 1104 on the other (with a lot of European bits mixed in along the way, as like most Brits I am a mongrelized species) so it really is my country and I am exercising my right to say which changes I think are OK and which ones need to be changed back to something that I consider to be more fundamentally originally British. You don’t have to agree but note do not have a right of reply. This blog is not a democracy, it is my publication. You wanna write? – get your own blog. This is not interactive as I only post sporadically and don’t spend lots of time in a two-way process, and as I have no appetite for entertaining trolls I seldom allow comments, although really good ones like the one that encouraged my rant today, do occasionally merit being allowed.

It IS a trick (not a treat).

Skulls are everywhere, even on baby clothes. The icon of the death cult is ever more pervasive due to the sterling efforts of that very dubious artist with the aptly dubious name. Well there ARE NO COINCIDENCES. The evil IS hidden in plain sight, and the only reason most people can’t see it is because they are not born again Christians, they have not had their eyes opened by the light of our Savior. Other symbols are also hidden in plain sight.

So for you edification and education I re-present to you an illuminati ufo glowing triangle disguised as a play button, that takes you to a little occult game where you can ritualistically practice drawing symbols. Can you feel it sucking you in yet? Or maybe just adding to the background relentless acclimatization to the occult just like the relentless acclimatization they have going on to deviant lifestyles and many other things that are contrary to the way God would prefer we choose to live our lives.

Also, for the record, I’m feeling blessed, not “lucky” as there is no such thing as “luck” either.

NWO-lympics!

Rio Olympics opening ceremony had images that resembled:

Projected evil eye with satanic “peace” sign (original crucifixion upside down teutonic rune of death) with added leaves (for pagan tree worship) appears centre of “iris” as fireworks make stadium appear as the eye.

Swastikas appear multiple times during the dance sequences video montage editing.

Single dancer also makes the sign of the swastika by placing his body in the position of a swastika crucifixion.

Plus ça change…

Mais dans ce cas…

As readers will know my head had been telling me to vote for the UK to remain in the EU. Well at the 11th hour that is not how I voted!

I asked the Lord how to vote.

He showed me Kings 2:8 (the waters parted). Then He showed me  Mark 15:38 (the veil of the temple torn in two from top to bottom). What the Lord was showing me is division, parting, but it is division that leads to a victorious crossing in each case. Then the Lord showed me Revelation 13:10 (If anyone is to go into captivity, into captivity they will go).

It seemed clear that the Lord was warning me that a vote to stay in was a vote to stay in captivity.

My wise wife had been saying all along that she would vote leave because the Lord was leading her in that, and that she thought Europe was one of the large territories that the Earth will be divided up into in the end times, and so was not a good thing to be part of. I remembered 2 Timothy 1:7 (For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind) and although my head said remain, something was telling me to be bold and brave and vote leave, and not be afraid of doing something difficult, that Britain needed to be bold and unafraid of the hard times it would give itself by leaving because in the end it would be glad that it had.

Altogether it seemed obvious that the Lord wanted me to overrule my head and let my spirit vote, for leaving the EU. So despite what my head said, I let the Holy Spirit guide my hand and I voted to leave!

Today when I woke up I was amazed and shocked, we have actually voted to leave the EU. I think the whole of my country is stunned, and it is the biggest political earthquake I can remember. It is a GLOBAL effect change to politics in the UK, Europe, and I think the world as it plays out in politics trade and economics. This could spell the end of the EU as the effects start to actually gradually affect the political senses of others in Europe that are discontent with the status quo. The leave vote was 17,410,742 – the odd two was obviously my wife and me! 🙂

The next line of that chapter in Revelation warns of death by the sword.

After I knew the result of the poll, the Lord showed me 4 signs about the referendum. He showed me that the Freemasons had been trying to influence the referendum.He showed me that Europe was an exhausted project. He showed me that despite the very rough ride my country will have as a result of leaving the EU, we can rely on His providence. He gave me a frightening sense of something very very bad that is going to happen in Europe, maybe a war or a genocide, a disease or some awful thing like backdoor involuntary euthanasia or abortions that will affect millions in Europe that as a result of leaving the UK will be spared from. I don’t know what it is or when, just that something awful is coming and the Lord has spared the UK from it by this tough and rather sad vote to part from the European political project. He said we had been set aside (The Lord has a great sense of words, as “set aside” is a European environmental scheme to save the environment). He said He has set us aside and saved us from this because there is work we have to do. I don’t know what that is, but it may be something to do with the fact that we are a defensible island and so also less susceptible to pandemics, something that has helped us many times over the centuries and Shakespeare, a great Briton (who also helped translate the Bible) knew and wrote of. Finally today the Lord gave me a sign of His covenant – a rainbow. When the Lord shows me signs they are literally signs. Please don’t think I am making like a big prophet – I don’t understand half this stuff and “I see though a glass darkly” as the Bible says – but I am just telling and showing you what He told and showed me, because I think He wants me to. Here are the signs He showed me:

Freedom always comes at a price, and there is little doubt that this price will be a high one, but the oddball, awkward, outsider, always brave, and the people of this island of very cool Britannia have decided it is one worth paying.

This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle, 
This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars, 
This other Eden, demi-paradise, 
This fortress built by Nature for herself 
Against infection and the hand of war, 
This happy breed of men, this little world, 
This precious stone set in the silver sea, 
Which serves it in the office of a wall 
Or as a moat defensive to a house, 
Against the envy of less happier lands,– 
This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England.
                                                                                        William Shakespeare

So I will end this post with the flag of my now rather more independent country, facing the world on its own two feet again for the first time in a very long time, like a person that has been in a semi-coma for the best part of 40 years, sleepwalking and becoming ever more dependant, suddenly having to learn to walk again. A new journey has begun.

Skulduggery

“Skulduggery” these days means underhand behaviour and deception. The word originates probably from a Scottish word for adultery. Adultery as well as being  sexual sin, also implies adulteration, the adding of an impurity to something wholesome for bad reasons. The word also offers a handy pun for this blog article…

Is it me?

No it isn’t. The world really is peppered with satanic symbols and it really is trying to push, ease, cajole and groom you stealthily through nasty little gateways into bad stuff.

So here’s what I found on just one popular culture website on one day – Cool Hunting website today – without even really trying hard.

An up-beat non-critical article about transgender options in virtual reality SIMS game, a similarly toned article about recreational Cannabis use (yes I do characterise this example as recreational not medical), and an article about getting orgasms from your music.

So, do we think this is a bunch of wholesome and healthy stuff that a Christian would feel happy to push out onto the world’s lifestyles?

Fortunately we know that the saved reborn are given eyes to see what the unsaved, sadly even when it is pointed out to them, cannot see. If you want to see what is really afoot in this world, you need to light of the world to see by, Jesus.

John 8:12 (KJV)

Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

 

Disappearing Cambridge

Mill Road is changing. We have lost the incredibly historic CB1 Internet Cafe with the very old computers on display, we have lost the atmospheric and odd Jaffa Net Cafe with its Hookah Pipe tent, and today I noticed the iconic Cambridge Resale is no more as a physical shop. They are, according to the notice on the old shop door, a website only now (their website needs updating as it says they have a shop, which apparently now, they don’t). At least they have kept their typeface, which they have had as long as I can remember.

I appreciate that change is inevitable, but what I miss is the informality that makes a place interesting. If property prices mean a place just becomes gentrified housing and clone chain coffeeshops, then have not all the things than made the area unique, interesting and desirable (and so property prices high) not been driven out? I don’t want run-down “interesting” slums, but nor do I want empty soul-less endless gated communities that separate people as that is deeply un-Christian, and unsurprisingly therefore, not nice. Does gentrification have within it the seeds of its own destruction? Signs of the (end) times maybe…
