“Another attack in London by a loser terrorist, “tweeted President Trump. “These are sick and demented people who were in the sights of Scotland Yard.”

Prime Minister Theresa May and the mad media fumed over the president’s insinuation that the Parsons Green “bucket bomber” was a “Known Wolf,” and not a lone wolf. But Donald Trump was entirely on the mark. May and her men knew Yahyah Farroukh (whose information the British press is protecting).

The “Known Wolf,” left free to hunt for prey, is the rule more than the exception in a country, Britain, that will do nothing to stop the likes of the little snot who struck in a London underground train, on September 14.

The same authorities find the will and the legal wherewithal to jail Englishmen for thought crimes, say, reciting verbatim anti-Islam verse from a book by Churchill.

Where President Trump went wrong was in calling the hissing snake “sick and demented.” The snake, taken in and housed by a tenderhearted, stupid British couple, was just being a snake; doing what his ilk has done since the seventh century.

The “sickest and most demented” of the lot are the British authorities.

Scotland Yard? MI5? All are MIA.

When it comes to protecting the lives of innocents, British security is missing in action, habitually, and some say intentionally.

Khuram Butt, one of the London Bridge attackers, starred in a Channel 4 TV documentary, The Jihadis Next Door. Butt was not on the lam during the shooting. He was not being investigated by the security forces, or hunkering in a bunker in Iraq. He was parading around in Barking, east London, broadcasting his intentions to the British people and their protectors. Why, even the Imam at the local mosque had expelled Butt for his murderous lust. But to his British groupies, within and without government, Butt was fit to be filmed living among them, scheming against them.

Twenty-two-year-old Salman Abedi murdered 22 youngsters in the Manchester Arena. He packed his bomb with shrapnel, ball bearings and nails. With such a fiendish device, surgeons must slice open the surviving victims, picking from the flesh and burrowing in the bone for embedded shards. To most decent people, Abedi was detritus. He ought to have been watched, segregated from civilization, deported, and, hopefully, dispatched one day.

But to the security service MI5 Abedi was part of the terrorist “assets” they had cultivated in Manchester “for more than 20 years.” The sanctimonious Ms. May has the audacity to scold President Trump for cryptically hinting at her culpability in enabling terrorism, when May was the Home Secretary under whose imprimatur Manchester’s resident terrorist cell was developed as an MI5 asset. (“Terror in Britain: What Did the Prime Minister Know?“)

The London tube attack was the fifth attack in Britain this year. Naturally, the state sluggards of British counter terrorism are seething over any leaks of information to their lowly subjects. Leaks reveal their ineptitude, their dereliction of duty and the elaborate protections they put in place for their privileged wards.

If not complicit, as veteran journalist John Pilger has convincingly contended, the British government and counter terrorism outfits are certainly criminally negligent.

Life With Islam

Clips of the carnage that is life with Islam are few and far between following an event like Barcelona, in which a Maghrebi Muhammadan (helped by two or three or more, including a holy man) drove his van into the crowds on Las Ramblas street. (Yes, August 19, 2017 is already a distant memory, just as the politicians want it.)

The grisly footage warning viewers of “graphic content” is quickly sanitized, stylized, set to somber but pleasant music. The camera pans out to focus, not on the prone victims, never to rise again, but on the prettier, vertical survivors.

But before images of the worst of Barcelona (or Brussels or Berlin or Paris or London) under Muslim assault were cleaned up for sensitivity’s sake—it was possible to glimpse the bloodied bodies and belongings strewn on the streets. Among them milled the survivors, some dazed and confused, others crouching near lifeless bodies, beside themselves with grief and disbelief.

Alas, many were visibly bored. As in, “This is the price of ‘freedom.’ Let’s get on with life. I wonder when the shops will reopen.” A reaction politicians are banking on must stop. The prey must become a little dangerous and unpredictable (like Donald Trump).

Life With Less Islam

To peacefully bring about desired, desperately required, immigration and deportation policies; people must secede from the public square to the extent possible.

Shop online. Make the home your new happening hub. Dine with friends, at home. Break bread with new friends, in homes. Patronize spots less trendy and off the beaten track. Organize neighborhood block parties.

It is the political class that the public must defang, if we wish to safeguard our lives and way of life. You see, politicians win if you don’t withdraw from the public square following a terrorist attack.

Let’s unpack this:

Politicians know their subjects well. All-too well do Whitehall, Washington and the EU-club know the speed at which the human anthill will return to the streets, following a terrorist attack.

Had not their flunkey, Shepard Smith of Fox News, exalted the Belgian human anthill for the speed with which the ants returned to darting back and forth, following a Muhammadan’s attack on Brussels’ Central Station (June 21, 2017)? In Shep’s compliant “thinking,” the terrorists win if we don’t return to our aimless consumption, laughing and making merry as we’re being picked off periodically by the enemy within.

Translated, this means that the terrorists win if we, their potential pool of victims, don’t do as our politicians say.

Like Shepard Smith, Obama kept intoning, “Dare do x, y or z on matters Muslim, and you guarantee that ISIS wins.” Or, “ISIS wants you to do x, y, and z.” Is this not, at once, reverse psychology and cliché?


How did that astringent mind know what ISIS wanted? It’s more likely that Obama was channeling the political class. Politicians are deploying reverse psychology to get their subjects across the West to comply with their own wishes. To wit, “If you stay away from the very public square w e politicians refuse to protect—ISIS wins.”

In practice, you are being ordered to shop until you drop, or are dropped by a Muslim behaving badly. Oops.

But think about it: If ISIS wants you—regular Americans, Europeans, British—to do what in your estimation is best for your longevity; perhaps ISIS is right, in this instance, and the politicians and pundits are wrong? Perhaps ISIS is right and Shepard Smith and Obama are dead wrong? What a concept!

Only when their Keynesian edifice of non-stop consumption suffers and, consequently, their re-election chances are imperiled—will politicians consider carrying out their duty to enact immigration and deportation policies that safeguard precious, innocent lives.

If ISIS approves, too, so be it. ISIS is happy, we’re happy because alive; everybody’s happy, except the politicians. Joy!

  5. So, by screwing ourselves out of life as we know it and enjoy it, we are screwing the politicians? That’s almost as Orwellian as their exhortations to keep on shopping, lest ISIS win.

    Life was easier when communities could have a hate-on and slay a few of the offending population in retaliation for the misdeeds of their members, which helped keep the peace by encouraging local communities to police themselves. Yeah, I know, things occasionally got out of hand, but was it any worse than what we have under the current professional system of law-enforcement and justice?

    England was relatively peaceful and Bobbies were unarmed in the last century because it was mostly English, and all that changed when people like Blair threw open the gates to the vibrant newcomers, and May kept them open as Home Secretary and doubled down by kettling in the liberties of the English in the name of protecting their freedoms.

    Maybe the Queen should dissolve Parliament and restore absolute Monarchy as an emergency measure … wait, I forgot that knob, Charles, is next in line.

    The alliances you mention are the cause of this trouble only in that they exist.

    The Muslim world does NOT like it. If you would take time to study them for just a bit you would find their intent is world domination.

    Terrorist attacks are but a small indication of their “courage” to venture farther out (test the waters so-t0-speak).

    We are proving their methods by being disparate in our response. We have too many bleeding hearts that REFUSE to see the truth as it unfolds before them vying for attention and warring with those that want to stand up to these despicable, cowardly thugs. To the point of blaming we that fight terrorism as the cause of these brutal attacks.

  19. Meh. In the USA, most places are brimming with civilians carrying concealed firearms.

    We don’t see them (that’s the “concealed” part) but they’re there. All the mayhem we hear about occurs in pretty much the islands where these people don’t go. Gun-free zones, indeed. Order-free, too.

    For this reason, I just can’t get that worried about England. They made their bed (perhaps because all the testosterone got killed off by 1945 and what’s left is spread out around the world playing Robin to Uncle Sam’s Batman.) They have a public sector that excuses criminal acts committed by non-Anglo people.

    You get more of what you tolerate, and to which you consent.

    Of course oil money is being used to bribe. But that is not the source, which means the root problem would exist if Arabs suddenly had 50% less oil money. And that source is that WASP culture from its inception is philSemitic. By the start of the Victorian era, virtually 100% of British Empire Elites were hardcore pro-Semitic. Most of them were pro-Jewish. A large and growing minority were pro-Arabic and pro-Islamic.

    The Brit WASP Elites kept peace among themselves by continuing historic hatreds toward non-WASP whites and by agreeing to back both Jews and Moslem Arabs. The Israeli-Saudi alliance is the inevitable fruit of that WASP cultural imperative.

    The most stupid thing you can do is to underestimate your enemy. You fail to see that the Arab world is not close to being as dumb as the black African world, which is smart enough to plan and execute all kinds of hell on earth.

    My guess is that the Israelis knew, because the British secret service is responsible for both the Mossad and the Saudi General Intelligence Presidency (as well as the CIA), and Israel and Saudi Arabia are allies. And both the UK and US love the Israeli-Saudi alliance.

    And if the Israelis knew, then the odds are good that major elements in the US Deep State knew as well.

    Yes, let’s. You forget that for centuries Muslims invaded, killed, enslaved and victimized Europeans which didn’t end until the early 19th century when America smashed the Barbary pirates. Muslims are perfectly capable of behaving badly and aggressively irrespective of what we do.

    I love the way Camilla bites her fist as she watches the action on telly. This drama piece wasn’t well received in the UK.

    Alarmist, that was the same criticism I was going to make about this post – the conclusion only. What the ??? Shopping on Amazon and eating in are going to help us beat the Moslem crazies? What do you mean, Ilana, like there’ll be no one left in the street to bomb?

    I think this part is pretty much backwards. The elites who encourage or at least don’t fight any of the immigration invasion and multiculturalism BS would be happy if all the regular British (and regular Americans here) were to stay inside and keep to themselves. It’s the white middle class having some clout, some associations, and some decent income/wealth (as in even BE middle class) that scares the globalist elites. They want this white middle class to die out, as 3rd-world type societies work out just peachy for the elite, minus the occasional kidnapping and revolution once in a while, or that’s what their FEELINGS tell them.

    What they don’t want is a group that competes with their wealth and power. They don’t want regular people to get together and make decisions like “we’ve had enough of this shit.”

    The Moslems are just a tool to beat us with, for now, but at 30% of the population or more, they won’t be tools anymore but competitors to the elite overlords we have now. None of these sick, stupid assholes has thought this through all the way, it’s just emotional with them. They want us gone.

    learned three new things about 9/11 this month

    All I think anyone except the conspirators knows really is that the official story is complete bullshit. The hijacker’s passport found at the bottom of the WTC, unburned, undamaged, was enough to prove the government and media were lying to us. WTC-7 proves a great deal of complexity in planning and execution.

    But the idea a foreign actor could pull off a 9/11 (and fail so badly on their highest value targets) is nearly as laughable as the official version. An operation as complex as setting charges on the largest buildings ever demolished, guiding big jetliners into those buildings, setting charges on a nearby building, putting a big hole in the ground in nowheresville PA, and flying something into the Pentagon, plus making four commercial flights vanish, simply couldn’t be done without very high level and some senior midlevel US government complicity. I also think that the actual operators who conducted the work would have to have been murdered to ensure silence – compartmentalized then murdered. Obviously for such diabolical conspirators another 50-100 wouldn’t matter, but I gotta think whacking a black ops guy or 50 would be tricky.

    And so for me, if we have a government that gives not a single fuck about mass-murdering thousands of our own civilians followed by many more thousands of our troops (let alone how many foreign dead we rack up – that seems to have never mattered), we are all completely fucked anyway.

  33. london – and the coalition of the willing – are getting revenge from pissed off muslims, displaced by stupid western politicians from their home countries. the idiotic war on terror continues apace.
    unless the west packs up and goes home, the problems will only mount.
    so far, the u.s. has been spared the worst(since 9-11, itself an act of vengeance). i don’t expect that will last.

    That’s what I think, too. What the elite overlords are afraid of is their own children having to compete in a truly meritocratic society against well-educated children of the lower classes. Third world immigrants keep the native Whites down, turn good schools into bad schools, and divide the working class.

    The Brit WASP Elites kept peace among themselves by continuing historic hatreds toward non-WASP

    What? White WASPs suffer from the actions of the elites too. If what you say would be true, then the WASP elites would never have allowed brown black migrations to protestant countries like Sweden or Britain and only targeted Catholic (and Orthodox) White countries like France, Ireland, Spain, Italy etc… for ‘enrichment’. But that is not the case obviously.

    They are not backing both Jews and Arab Muslims. Arab Muslims are being used as weapons against Whites and Western civilization by the Zios just like the North African Moors were used as weapons by Zios against Vishigothic Iberia and the Franks. At the same time, the long term plan is to empty the Arab lands for the creation of Greater Israel. I think the attack on Syria/ Libya/Iraq and the Mass migration to Europe was just a small scale test run. The long term plan would be to push a major population of the Middle East (by government destabilization and civil wars) into Europe and upto lesser extent onto North America and Australia/New Zealand.
    This would attain many objectives. Empty up land in the Middle East with fake Zio controlled Islamic movements like ISIS cleaning up the area for the Zios. At the same time, in Europe, the natives will be locked in a civil war with the new Islamic invaders. The natives will be so busy and full of hatred for muslims by now that they will not object to Israel’s actions in the Middle East. Native European masses have this universal morality tendency to interfere in any part of the world for righteousness, a trait exploited by the elites in the past. But when Israel expands, they will not have to worry about that ‘European problem’. No more Emperor Titus’s people coming to spoil the party this time.
    Besides, mass movements of these people into Europe also opens up the opportunity of mass marriages/ matings between native Europeans and outsiders thus dissolving away the European race. A high IQ, physically strong race who have the potential to overturn the globalist plans slowly dissolve away into the brown world (future goyim slaves).
    Mass immigration would also be useful in case the bankers loot up the wealth and the economies of the West collapses, the White peasants will not get to reach the looters to hang them like they would in the past. The looters would simply rile up the brown black masses and a lot of the energy of the White peasants will be dissipated on the hapless brown blacks while the bankers run scot free. Most importantly in such a scenario of an economic collapse, it reduces the chance of the rise of another Hitler in Europe. That is very important.

    Very true. They did the same thing in Venezuela under Chavez and Brazil under Lula.
    Super-rich Socialists quaff champagne in Venezuela country club while middle class mothers scavenge for scraps in the gutter… and even the DOGS are starving
    The elites say, ‘the great man of the people’ Hugo Chavez was always one of them, a rich elite. All Chavez did was rile up the lowest classes and in the process destroyed the middle class.
    As far as Brazil, Olava de Carvalho has written many times about leftist Lula being the darling of the globalist bankers.

    That is what you get when you fight for abstract concepts. A rule of thumb, always be suspicious of politicians who use abstract concepts and emotions in their speech. Abstract concepts are used to hide the true motives of elites, always have, always will. White people tend to have this strange tendency to launch massive wars over some abstract concept as well as a universal righteous morality. A starving child in Sudan will cause many White people to cause a outcry and start a charity to help but the average Indian middle class or the average Arab will not give a damn. This quality has been exploited by Western elites for centuries.
    This is eye opening

    Olavo de Carvalho – Never discuss ideologies – English Subtitles

    It is not worth fighting for abstract concepts and ideologies. ‘Blood and Soil’ is a million times more honest than ‘making the world safe for democracy’.
