Random Thoughts

The world is changing. It always changes. Even the climate is in flux - will we have another ice age or will the planet become a cinder? The Europe that I knew as a boy and as a young man has vanished. Look at the historical archive films of European nations in the 1900's. Then visit today. In downtown London, you're in the minority on the street if you're not a Muslim. The place has a definite hint of third world charm. Stockholm looks more like Johannesburg, South Africa than a Scandinavian country. France and Germany opened the gates to the hoard and the hoard arrived and brought with them every nasty problem they sought to flee from.

You need only look to the "border crisis" in the US, which is not really a crisis so much as it is a political fight over whether allowing illegal aliens to vote will be acceptable. The Democrat Party knows that its future requires an inexhaustible supply of compliant illegal voters surging into the US.

Then there is the Great Game - and the Asian Subcontinent.

According to Dawn, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia are likely to sign memoranda of understanding (MoUs) for more than $10 billion in Saudi investment in Pakistan this month. Pakistan will also sign similar MoUs with China, the United Arab Emirates and Malaysia over the next two months. I'm grateful that the US has President Trump calling the shots, or we would be dumping more billions into that bottomless pit of  corruption as well. China hopes to turn Pakistan into a vassal state with cheap labor and a road to the Indian Ocean (or the Far South China Sea?). Will they succeed?

There is a push and pull over Pakistan these days. The investments mean that the Arab Islamic states are attempting to reclaim Pakistan as an Islamic state, more than as an Asian state. Pakistan has the largest Muslim army in the world and remains, with Egypt, a guarantor of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Expect to see Pakistani Army deployments (possibly to Yemen) as a form of repayment for these loans.

  1. Does the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia have enough money to cover all the bribes and pilferage involved in moving Paki military to Yemen?

    1. Genuine Saudis (not the guest workers who live there) don't seem to be able to do much. There are a few of them in the Saudi military who have trained extensively in the US, fly jets, etc. but when I say "few", it's very few. They need useful proxies to fight their wars for them and to defend them - reliable Muslims.

      I don't know that I'd pick the Pakistanis or the Egyptians (both of whom back the Saudi play) to rely on, but they don't seem to have that many Muslim options. Having been involved in Gulf Wars in the past, I don't think that I'd want to rely on any of the Muslim militaries to extract me when times became tricky. This is not to impute individuals, some of whom are extraordinarily brave and honorable.

      President Trump is concerned about the welfare of America and Americans FIRST.

    2. Does being the "home" of Islam carry much weight?

    3. Maybe a little. If you want to go to heaven, you need to go to the Hajj and walk around the black meteorite.

      Money talks a lot louder and the Saudis are awash with cash and gold.

    1. Yes, they have Chinese nukes and turn key nuke factories supplied by China. They also have Chinese made ballistic missiles to deliver them. Of course, India has (reputedly) more nuclear weapons, delivery systems and so forth.

  3. >Stockholm looks more like Johannesburg, South Africa than a Scandinavian country

    Well, looks like the Kalergi plan is coming along nicely. And if there aren't enough voluntary mixes, we'll facilitate rape.

    Count Coudenhove-Kalergi (himself Eurasian) says:
    The man of the future will be of mixed race. [...] The Eurasian-Negroid race of the future, similar in its appearance to the Ancient Egyptians, will replace the diversity of peoples with a diversity of individuals.

    Kalergi goes on to say some highly laudatory things about Jews that seem to form the basis of Barbara Lerner Spectre's infamous speech:
    Europe is not going to be the monolithic societies they once were in the last century. Jews are going to be at the centre of that. It’s a huge transformation for Europe to make. They are now going into a multicultural mode and Jews will be resented because of our leading role. But without that leading role and without that transformation, Europe will not survive.

    This Spectre speech is really worth seeing on Youtube, because her body language is quite remarkable (and disturbing). And note the pause after she says "monolithic" -- it seems clear that she barely stopped herself from saying a word, and that word was probably "white". Swedish journalist Ingrid Carlqvist has some good videos about this.

    > Does being the "home" of Islam carry much weight?
    "Some" yes; "much" I'd highly doubt. Most of the Muslims I know (including Pakistanis, Syrians, a Palestinian or two, etc) have nothing good to say about the Saudis.

    1. The biggest racists are the people who decry racism. It would be funny but people actually take some of them seriously.

  4. in the coming war, the major population centers of the entire world will be ashes and all the problems with mixing of cultures you see now will vanish in the flashes. human society will again become agrarian at its core and the french are quite well put to be the center of euro society, what little that is left in the aftermath. I am fairly sure africa as a whole will survive but will not be untouched. power vacuums will be filled internally and tribalism will assert itself in a push for dominance. the future of asia and the middle east is murky at best. old scores will be settled. newer rivals will be eliminated. very murky and dark futures for all concerned. the lid can be tied down for only so long. best advice is to get your popcorn and beer while you can.

  5. Yes, even the climate's in flux, it changes. All the more reason to hurry up and tax it then.

    Speaking of London, I was there a little while ago and roved about downtown for the first time in ages. I was struck by how... white it was. Far more so than, say, Texas. Mind you, go to Tower Hamlets etc and it's a different story.

    1. There are parts of London that is not integrated. Other parts feel very differently. Traffic cameras may solve the world's problems and defeat global warming.

  6. Based on my knowledge, I wouldn't trust the Pakis any further than I could throw them... They're maneuvering to get parity with India, thinking they can take over the northern half of India and 'reunite' families... sigh

  7. Chief, spellchecker is not your friend. As to Europe, it is certainly not the one of my grandparents or 1979 when I backpacked through 6 countries. Sad to see the invasion taking hold in GB, Germany, Sweden and France. Unless Hungary and the other former block nations reject the EU policies completely they too will sink. My former business partners in Frankfurt and Sweden express great frustration with their government. I don't know if there are sufficient PO'd natives to reverse the tide but the pressure is certainly building.

    1. I don't know what the 'elites' of Europe think about their imported populations, but for our country, I think 'hoard' is as accurate a nomenclature as 'horde'. Democrats see them as a hoard of future Democrat votes, while the GOPe sees them as a hoard of cheap labor and future guarantee that the GOPe won't be forced to take a leadership role, but can play the part of the extremely loyal 'opposition' and noble, principled losers. Everyone wins except for America and Americans that aren't already megamillionaires or better.

    2. Larry, you nailed it. Terrapod, sorry about spelling. Sometimes it's me but more often, it's the box that "corrects" various words incorrectly, and I don't pick it up because I am a fast typist.

  8. Scary days ahead, but I do find comfort in the fact that President Trump is at the helm.
