Here's That Rainy Day

It's been raining--heavily, interminably--for days now. Thought I'd share the song I just played for myself, one that synchs with booth my mood and the weather.

Hope you agree that, morose as it is, it features one of the most guttingly beautiful vocal performances ever recorded.

Strangest. Bedfellows. Evah?

What else would you call one of loco Louis Farrakhan's NOI factotums shilling for the likes of...the Church of Scientology?

A marriage made in the more fiery precincts of Hades, surely.

Friday, August 31, 2018


That's exactly what I felt when I happened to catch Bill Clinton sitting beside overt Jew-hater Louis Farrakhan at Aretha Franklin's funeral, televised on CNN.

Update: Here's the backstory:
The Franklin/Farrakhan relationship dates back several decades, according to a statement Farrakhan made after her death.

‘In 1972, when I was minister in New York City, Temple No 7, the police attacked our mosque. Within a few hours, Aretha Franklin came to the mosque, to my office, and said that she saw the news and came as quickly as she could to stand with us and offer us her support,’ Farrakhan wrote.

‘She asked me if Rev Jesse Jackson had been there to show support. I said, not yet. She said, he’ll be here within 48 hours. Rev Jackson came and stood with the Muslims.
Jesse Jackson? Oh, you mean the guy who once referred to NYC as "Hymietown."

Those were some really swell Jew-loathers the Queen of Soul liked to hang out with. Not that it matters now but I can't help but: was she in synch with them, Jew-wise?

"There Needs To Be Among Muslims In This Country a Rejection of These Hateful Supplications"

Tarek Fatah has had it with our ignorance re what's being preached to Toronto Muslims in certain mosques. He wonders (how dare he?!) if Toronto shooter Faisal Hussain could have been influenced by this type of hate speech.

False Elephant Alert?

What did police find on Danforth shooter Faisal Hussein's computer?

My prediction: we will never know. Especially if there was anything of a jihadi nature on it.

The initial narrative--"he was nuts, not jihadi"--is the one authorities are going to stick with. Hence, this:
Many in the community are searching for answers about why the gunman wandered five blocks of bustling Danforth Avenue late on July 22 and indiscriminately shot into eateries.
[Toronto Police Chief Mark] Saunders said there isn't an easy answer and it will take investigators a "tremendous amount of time" to determine one. Officers are probing the gunman's background and where he might have obtained his weapon.

But he said that to truly scratch the surface, city and law enforcement officials "need to talk about that elephant in the room" — what services and support are in place to prevent vulnerable people from picking up a firearm. 
That's the elephant? 

Well, only if the "he's nuts, not jihadi" narrative pans out. 

Otherwise, you've got the wrong pachyderm there, chief.

Have Authorities Been Playing Us Re Toronto Shooter Faisal Hussain?

Now, here's something you won't hear on the CBC or read in, say, the Toronto Star. It's a summary of what we know about a shooter who was allegedly wracked by psychosis, but who was able to cold bloodedly and accurately target infidels enjoying a balmy Sunday evening in Greektown, killing two--one a mere child--and injuring many others. Unlike every other mainstream media outlet in the land, the Toronto Sun is willing to poke holes in the "he was nuts, not jihadi" narrative (as if the two are mutually exclusive). See, for instance, this section:
Sources have also said the RCMP had spoken to Hussain about visiting pro-Islamist websites.
But Canada's Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale was quick to deny Hussain was on any federal watchlists.
"As far as we're aware at this stage based on the state of the investigation, there is no connection between that individual and national security," he told media.
One source with close ties to the policing world scoffed at Goodale's comment.
"Most people don't end up having the RCMP show up at their door to discuss their online activity," said the source, who asked not to be named.
The source said the feds, police chief and others have been "playing with words" and "deceiving the public."
"It's all political," the source said.
How refreshing to read such words in the pages of a mainstream Toronto newspaper. Too bad they will be dismissed by the feds, police chief and others, including members of the far too easily gulled public, as the ravings of a lunatic/"Islamophobe."

When It Comes to Modern Judenhass In France, the Craven French Refuse to Take Sides

Is it any wonder that more and more French Jews are hightailing out of there?:
France has a painful history of anti-Semitism, with its worst hours coming in the 1930s and during the German occupation in World War II. But in recent months, an impassioned debate has erupted over how to address what commentators are calling the "new anti-Semitism," as Jewish groups and academic researchers trace a wave of anti-Semitic acts to France;s growing Muslim population.

Nearly 40 percent of violent acts classified as racially or religiously motivated were committed against Jews in 2017, though Jews make up less than 1 percent of France's population. Anti-Semitic acts increased by 20 percent from 2016, a rise the Interior Ministry called "preoccupying."

In 2011, the French government stopped categorizing those deemed responsible for anti-Semitic acts, making it more difficult to trace the origins. But before then, Muslims had been the largest group identified as perpetrators, according to research by a leading academic. Often the spikes in violence coincided with flare-ups in the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians, according to researchers.

For the French government, the issue is deeply complicated, touching on the country's rawest political nerves, as well as ethnic and religious fault lines. France has Europe's biggest population of both Jews and Muslims, and Muslims face both discrimination in employment and in their treatment by the police.

French leaders fear pitting one side against the other, or even acknowledging that a Muslim-versus-Jew dynamic exists. To do so would violate a central tenet of France--that people are not categorized by race or religion, only as fellow French citizens, equal before the law.
What utter balderdash! What French leaders really fear--duh!--is the wrath of the Jew-haters.

FPM Officially Jumps the Shark (Or In This Case the Trump) With This One

In what alternate universe has "Trump stood up to Putin"?

More to the point, in what alternate universe could that be an actual perception?

Two Solitudes

The two are comprised of American Jews and Israel's Jews.

The Canadian Jewish News Targets Pro-Israel, Right Wing "Never Again Group"

Behold, the CJN's hard-hitting piece on what it claims is a dangerous "racist"/"Islamophobic" entity.

Behold, too, my comment:
In light of, and as a balance to, this article, I eagerly await the CJN's exposé of the CBC's inherent anti-Israel animus/bias.
Eagerly and, as I am well aware, in vain. 

Can You Guess the Source of This Summary?

It's a rundown of Trump's recent ego 'n' ignorance-driven wrong-headedness:
To sum up: Trump disagreed with nearly all of the House and Senate on how much control he should have over Russia sanctions. He disagreed with modern economic practice when he openly welcomed a trade war with China and hiked tariffs even on friendly, free-trading nations: mercantilist nonsense whose heyday was two centuries ago. He buddied up with Kim and accepted his vague intentions prima facie amid calls for prudence; he legitimized the denials of Vladimir Putin although his government has concluded and insisted that the neo-dictator’s regime meddled and continues to try meddling in American elections.
So where do you think it's from?

TIME? The Nation? Harper's? Some other mainstream, left-of-center publication?


It's from the very conservative Weekly Standard

Melanie Phillips: "Victim Culture Is Innately Anti-Jewish. But Victim Culture Lies At the Very Heart of Progressive Left-Wing Thinking"

So true. And yet, something that is rarely articulated, much less acknowledged.

The Authoritarian's Apprentice?

I see that, despite Trump's obvious shortcomings (to put it mildly), the pundits over at FrontPage Magazine continue to swoon over their POTUS. Thankfully, however, there are a few conservatives who would sooner barf at than swoon over Trump's embarrassing and dangerous antics. Anthony Furey, for one, is no fan of the man's Helsinki hustle; of how, for reasons known only to himself, Trump humbled himself "in the presence of Putin."

I'm with Furey on that one. The result of which is this letter to the Toronto Sun's editor:
In the reality TV show that is currently underway on the global stage, Vladimir Putin has been cast as mob boss Tony Soprano.  
As for Donald Trump: he, alas, has willingly cast himself in the lesser role of Tony's flabby, deferential sidekick, Big Pussy. 
And if Trump isn't careful, his political career may end up sharing the same fate as that character and "swim with the fishes."

"At What Point Do We Hold Russia and Putin Accountable?"

Great question. We know, however, that with a Putin-besotted Trump at the helm, the answer to that is an emphatic "never!"

And for the record--and until/unless more concrete evidence comes to light--I don't believe there was any collusion between Trump and Putin in '16; the Russian despot, who admitted during today's presser that he wanted Trump to win, didn't have to collude with him. All Putin had to do was mess with the U.S. election sans collusion, which appears to be exactly what happened.

To be clear: I was disgusted when Barack Obama sucked up to the likes of Iran's Grandiose Ayatollah. I am equally--if not more--disgusted by the sight of an American president abasing himself, and by extension the USA, before Putin, a revolting, irredeemable thug.

Update: High fives to those on the right, including many at Fox News, Trump's mothership, who have had the courage to speak truth to power.

Update: Then again, some on the right are so completely in the tank for Trump that they don't even know that they're drowning.

Trump's Tactic: Accentuate the Negative

Trump says he has "low expectations" re his meeting tomorrow with Putin and, whadya know?, I feel a song coming on:

Next time you wait 
To "make America great"
Take a look at your fate
'Fore it's too late.

Just what makes that puffy old dude
Want to schmooze a despot who's shrewd?
Everyone knows with shrewd dude
Puffy will get screwed.

And he's got low hopes.
He's got low hopes.
He's got low/a tale of woe/soften the blow hopes.
So anytime you're thinkin'
To link in Helsinki
Just remember that dude.
Whoops, there goes another Yank gettin' screwed...

Don and Vlad's Execrable Adventure--In Song!

Justin Trudeau says NATO has plans to tell Donald Trump that Russia poses a threat.

Why bother, though, when Don and Vlad have a bromance made in Hades--or is it on Broadway?

Arguing for the latter, here are the two alpha males singing a golden oldie by Mr. Porter (and, how perfect!, it first appeared in his show Anything Goes):
Don: If you ever have a scare, I'll be there.

Vlad: If you ever need to flee, call for me.

Don: If you're ever so angry, and Ukraine invade; accolade!

Both: It's bromance, bromance. It's what makes us crow-mance.

Don: When others' bromance have run aground, ours'll still astound.

Vlad: La de la de la de dum dum dum...

What Price Justin Trudeau's Gory Glory?

Canada is sending a bunch of soldiers--"peacekeepers"--to Mali, a godforsaken backwater where jihad is being waged, and where there is no discernable peace to keep.

There's an excellent reason, though, why the Liberal government would want to put Canadians in harm's way. In a nutshell, it's because the Trudeau crew is hoping to endear itself to the UN in a bid to gain a seat on the Security Council.

That's right. This government see nothing wrong--and everything right--about sacrificing Canadian lives as payment--blood money, really--for a phony baloney seat at a phony baloney table.

Why ordinary Canadians aren't up in arms, so to speak, about this reprehensible trade-off is anyone's guess.

Sharia-Style Blasphemy Laws About to Become a Reality Down Under?

As per this, it seems to be a definite pssibility.

Orwellian Euphemism Du Jour: The Trudeau Gov't Calling Returing ISIS Fighters "High Risk Travellers"

Just don't call 'em jihadis, kay? Because that would be soooo "Islamophobic":
In the sanitizing Orwellian newspeak employed by the Canadian government, the terrorists are not jihadis who left Canada to commit the most heinous crimes, such as torture, rape and murder, while fighting for ISIS in Syria and Iraq, but "High Risk Travelers" and "High Risk Returnees".

The government is fully aware of the security risk to which it is subjecting Canadians: According to the documents, "HRRs [High Risk Returnees] can pose a significant threat to the national security of Canada". This fact raises the question of why the government of Canada is keen to facilitate these people's "right of return" -- when presumably the primary obligation of the government is to safeguard the security of law-abiding Canadian citizens.
To add insult to injury, the Trudeau minions insist that ISIS fighters with Canadian citizenship are entitled to--wait for it--"a right of return."

You know, like diaspora Jews do vis-à-vis Israel. (And like Palestinians claim to have vis-à-vis "Palestine," i.e. Israel).

Something very wrong with putting it like that, no?

"Progressive" Jew's Lame Explanation for Canada Abstaining From UN's Vile Anti-Israel Motion

It doesn't get lamer than this:
However, Karen Mock, the president of JSpace Canada, a progressive Zionist organization, is not as concerned with how Canada voted on the resolution.

“Canada’s support for Israel is clear and long-standing, so it should not be judged by any one vote. Canada is walking a diplomatic tightrope to regain a spot on the security council, which will allow Canada to do far more good than on the sidelines,” she said.

Mock also pointed out that once it was clear which way the vote was going, there was no point in Canada voting in favour of the resolution. She said that strategic voting will put Canada in a position to play a stronger role in the peace process going forward.
"Strategic voting" my adorably dimpled arse. The only strategy to be seen here is the Trudeau government's desire to suck up--big time--to the heinous UN. And if that means shafting Israel in the process, well, that's something that the Liberals (and let's remember that the "progressive" Ms. Mock numbers herself among their ranks and, indeed, was once a Liberal candidate in a Canadian election) are only too willing to do.

U.S. To UNHRC: We're Outta Here!

Kudos to the Trump administration for hightailing it out of what is arguably the UN's most odious body, its absurdly misnamed "Human Rights Council." (It should be called the "UN Let's Bash Israel Using the Pretext of Human Rights Council.")

The numbers say it all:

UN Human Rights Council Condemnations, 2006-16:
Israel 68
Syria 20
Burma 11
North Korea 9
Belarus 6
Iran 6
Eritrea 5
Sudan 3
Sri Lanka 3
Libya 2
Burundi 1
Honduras 1
Algeria 0
China 0
Iraq 0
Pakistan 0
Russia 0
Somalia 0
Turkey 0
Venezuela 0
Vietnam 0

Yemen 0

Despite these sickening stats, the EU remains unwavering in its support.

Arms and the (Orange) Man

This does not sound good:
The divergence between the Trump administration’s desire to increase arms sales to the Middle East and the capacity limits of Arab clients for what the US currently markets makes the release of new types of advanced US weapon systems to the region more likely. This could undermine Israel’s qualitative military edge. While the Trump administration’s global arms export drive may increase US-Israel competition for certain markets, it could also offer opportunities for joint arms export cooperation. But Israel should be wary of following the American lead in relaxing export standards for approving arms sales.

Trump announces plans for Pentagon to create 'Space Force'

Unpacking "Juche," North Korea's Ideology

Sounds a lot like Trumpism, if you ask me (my bolds):
Juche, which roughly translates as “self-reliance,” is an odd blend of several different ideas. It borrows much of its language from Marxism but also draws on Confucianism, 20th-century Japanese imperialism, and traditional Korean nationalism. Its core idea is that North Korea is a country that must remain separate and distinct from the world, dependent solely on its own strength and the guidance of a near-godlike leader.

Outdoor Advice for Abominable Jews

A U.S. network of Jewish summer camps has told a pro-BDS/anti-Zionist Jewish outfit to take a hike.

Update: Here's a brief run down of the summer "fun" on offer at "Go Palestine," a Ramallah-based camp aimed at youths aged 14-17 who reside in "the Palestinian diaspora":
The camp’s own descriptions of each year’s activities from 2013-2017 report that the teens are shown films such as “Occupation 101” and “Jerusalem: The East Side Story,” which depict Israel as a racist, savage oppressor. A panel on “Youth Activism and Engagement in Palestine” featured representatives of “the Love Under Apartheid Campaign [and] the BDS movement.” Officials of a group called “Right to Education” explained to the campers that all Israeli universities should be boycotted, since they are part of “the structure of systemic oppression.”

Something the Late Anthony Bourdain Got Very Wrong

For one thing, he didn't "get" Gaza, as is evident from what is meant to be an encomium in the TLS (my bolds):
On politics, everyone got a fair chance to tell their story: he discussed the Troubles in Irish pubs and bars; American viewers walked with him through the streets of Cuba; he ate in Gaza, for which he was both praised and vilified (his response, later, was this: “The world has visited many terrible things on the Palestinian people, none more shameful than robbing them of their basic humanity. People are not statistics. That is all we attempted to show”).
Sadly, however, he omitted the many terrible things the Palestinian people have visited upon Israel specifically and mankind as a whole, including jihad, Jew-hate and wee tots decked out in Semtex vests.

Update: Let's not forget that other Palestinian, erm, "visitation"--Farfour the eliminationist mouse.

Enough Already With the Ubiquitous "We're So Sorry That We 'Settlers' Stole Your Land" Disclaimers That are Recited Before Every Public Events In Canada

Yesterday afternoon, as I sat in what was quite possibly the most uncomfortable theatre seat I have ever occupied (the words "zero leg room" don't even begin to cover it), I heard the National Ballet of Canada's Karen Kain launch into one of those Truth and Reconciliation Commission-engendered mea culpas. 

You know the kind. They go on and on about how we non-Aboriginals are sitting smack on top of Aboriginal land, and that all of "our" Canada is actually--and remains--their Turtle Island. (Not that the "admission" is doing much to placate First Nations.)

Today I chanced upon a rebuttal to the "let's wallow in guilt" mindset that many, including me, find so ridiculous and oppressive (also ridiculously oppressive):
In a recent interview in the online magazine which I edit, Quillette, I asked Campbell and Manning what they thought about cultural appropriation. They explained that they found such complaints baffling, like everybody else, but that they also “illustrate victimhood culture quite well.” One of the key components of victimhood culture is its projection of collective guilt, social offenses between individuals are no longer about the actual people involved, they are about “one social group harming another.”

One might make the case that while complaints about cultural appropriation are annoying, they are ultimately harmless. What is the harm in showing deference to peoples who have historically been the victims of exploitation, discrimination, and unfair treatment? What is the harm in showing respect and compliance with these new rules—isn’t it a way of making up for past sins?

The short answer to these questions is, no. The notion that a person can be held as responsible for actions that he or she did not commit strikes at the very heart of our conception of human rights and justice.

We used to take calls for collective punishment much more seriously. In the 1949 Geneva Convention it was determined that: “No protected person may be punished for an offense he or she has not personally committed.” Collective punishment was seen as a tactic designed to intimidate and subdue an entire population. The drafters of the Geneva Convention clearly had in mind the atrocities committed in WWI and WWII where entire villages and communities suffered mass retribution for the resistance activities of a few. In their commentary on the outlawing of collective punishment the International Red Cross stated: “A great step forward has been taken. Responsibility is personal and it will no longer be possible to inflict penalties on persons who have themselves not committed the acts complained of.”

Trump Goes South (Park)

Now that Trump's on a tear against the blandest, nicest country in the world (picking a fight with Canada--isn't that like picking a fight with a baby seal, or with, say, maple syrup for being way too sweet?), these words (nominated for a Best Original Song Oscar in 1999) sound eerily prescient:
Time's have changed
Our kids are getting worse
They won't obey their parents
They just want to fart and curse

Should we blame the government?
Or blame society?
Or should we blame the images on TV?

No, blame Canada, blame Canada
With all their beady little eyes
And flappin' heads so full of lies

Blame Canada, blame Canada
We need to form a full assault
It's Canada's fault,,

Well, blame Canada, blame Canada
It seems that everything's gone wrong
Since Canada came along

Blame Canada, blame Canada
There not even a real country anyway...

Just In Time for Toronto's Latest "Al Quds Day"...

The editorial in the Toronto Sun details "The true, malevolent face of the Iranian regime," that band of theocratic brigands whose avowed aim is a genocide of the Jews, beginning with the ones in Israel.

Here's the brief letter I sent in response:
In view of the Iranian leader's vow to, in his own words, "eradicate Israel," here's a question to pose to Mayor John Tory: Why is Toronto permitting yet another "Al Quds Day," an annual event initiated by the late Ayatollah Khomeini in order to "protest" Israel's effrontery in daring to exist, to take place in our city?
In an instance of perfect timing, Gatestone's Bassam Tawil explains why the Khomeinists' "Justice, Peace & Love" palaver is a bunch of malarkey:
Yelling lies about Israel and Jews does not make one "pro-Palestinian." It only makes one an Israel-hater. Hating Israel does not improve human rights conditions for Palestinians living under Hamas and Fatah. Instead, it serves as a distraction and even facilitates Fatah and Hamas in suppressing public freedoms and human rights.

Al Quds Day Toronto Promo Is Bollocks On Stilts

Here's the ad:

As I'm sure you're aware, "JUSTICE, PEACE & LOVE" are not part of the Khomeinist agenda. However, bamboozling the gullible infidels--and undermining the sovereign Jewish state of Israel--via an annual "Al Quds Day" definitely is.


Update: I just sent the following via email to Hizzoner, John Tory:
Dear Mayor Tory, 
I am dismayed and disgusted to see the City of Toronto—motto: Diversity is Our Strength—doing nothing to put the brakes on yet another Iran-sponsored Al Quds Day.  
This is not about “free speech.” This is not about “free assembly.” This is about Iran’s desire to wipe out the sovereign Jewish State of Israel (see this: 
There is no place for this sort of genocidal hatred in the city we both love.
