CATALONIA INDEPENDENCE: SPANISH DEEP STATE BEHIND TERROR ATTACK

The cessation of Catalonia from Spain poses the all important question if independence on cultural, religious or ethnic basis is justified? And how is the mother country to deal with the rebellion? Ayn Rand's philosophy of Objectivism says that cessation is justified, on condition that it leads to more liberty; not to establish a socialist europhile crypto tyranny. 

UPDATE
: Remember Catalonia's still born bid for independence back in 2017? Now there is a twist to this story! Former police chief José Manuel Villarejo has admitted that the CNI (the Spanish intelligence service) was behind the terror attack on the Ramblas in Barcelona in August of 2017 in order to deter Catalonians from voting for independence a month before the referendum. Sixteen people died in the attack.

BIDEN'S BLUNDER: TERRORISTS GATHERING IN EURASIA

In recent days reports appeared in the media about rioting or even an impending revolution in the former Soviet republic of Kazaghstan (fact book). Given the reputation of the legacy media for the spread of globalist propaganda and misrepresentation of facts in recent years, we are happy to be able to give our readers some independent perspectives on events concerning Russia and its 'near abroad'. 

UPDATE: Well, it would seem that Biden's fiasco in Afghanistan is now spreading hybrid warfare over the entire Eurasian region! Indian counter-terror experts closely monitoring the situation in Kazaghstan are analyzing the role of ISI in the attacks. Sources in Tadjikistan say over 6,000 terrorists have gathered near Southern borders of the Central Asian Republics and Eurasian states. Afghan Taliban are pushing armed militants and suicide bombers in an organized way in northern Afghanistan, along the borders with former Soviet republics.

CHINA COLD WAR: (WEEKEND MOVIE) "DEATH BY CHINA" (OFFICIAL VERSION)

Since taking power eight years ago, chairman Xi has massively overhauled China's military, economy, and political influence. China is ready to take on its leading role as global tyrant. Xi declared in his Davos January 2021 speech that he has the "Mandate of Heaven" for global rule. But as China continues to cover up the origin of the COVID-19 virus, its economic rise appears to be over the hill.

UPDATE: As Frank Gaffney explained to Bannon on Dec. 31, China has already sunk its hooks in 135 nations by its neo colonial Belt and Road Initiative. They are in all parts of Asia, Europe, Canada, Meso and South America, swathes of Africa, including a naval base in west Africa with access to the Atlantic. In Latin America China is building up the so-called Forum of Sao Paolo, the CCP version of the Communist International, with Chile as the latest aspiring member.

QUEST FOR MODERN ISLAM: JORDAN PETERSON AND MUSTAFA AKYOL ON ISLAM, CHRIST AND LIBERTY

Islam apologists have long pointed to a moderate Islam. The fiercest critics of Islam are holding on the other hand that Islam is Islam. But if Jews and Christians can reform, so can Muslims. Indeed you can't change an ideology, but you can change the mindset of the people and the culture. Key is the long and hard process of individualization and dropping the totalitarian aspects that have long bedeviled Mohammedanism.



Nov. 8, 2021 Jordan Peterson talks to Mustafa Akyol about Islam, Christ, and Liberty.

UPDATE: Mustafa Akyol and Jordan Peterson discuss Muslim history and tradition. They touch on subjects like Jesus Christ from a Christian and Muslim perspective, the Virgin Mary's role in the Koran, separation of Church and State as an ideology, the dangers of literalism when facing religious texts, and much more.

AFGHANISTAN: BAGRAM AIR BASE TAKEN OVER BY CHINA

The Biden regime planned the disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan -- the tribal eparchy where the attacks were planned by Al Qaeda -- to coincide with the 20 year anniversary of 9/11. Earlier this month Bagram Air Force Base was vacated, lock, stock and barrel. It is all reminiscent of Obama's betrayal of Iraq that resulted in the reign of terror by the physical ISIS Kalifate in Syria. Another power vacuum is being created and God only knows what the result will be this time.

GEOPOLITICS: THE RETURN OF THE GREAT POWER GAME (LONGREAD)

The world is on the brink of a paradigm shift. The first signs of this new constellation have become visible in the bankruptcy of old alliances and the beginnings of new alignments. There are a number of catalysts: the dawn of authoritarian Communist China as the world's production center based on slavery, and Turkey's aggressive expansionism in the East Med. Yet the Abraham Accords in parts of the Middle East have opened up opportunities that were hitherto unthinkable.


Sep. 22, 2021 Caspian Report: India's masterplan to counter China.

President Trump's vision of peace and prosperty in exchange for political Islam (watch his momentous speech in Riyadh) culminated in the Abraham Accords between the US,  Israel, the UAE, Bahrain. Morocco and Sudan subsequently joined the pact. This enabled the US to withdraw from the Middle East and pivot towards the Pacific with the establishment of a joint Australian and UK naval partnership only last week, auspiciously named AUKUS.

THE TALIBAN: FIGHTING PAKISTAN'S GHOST ARMY (LONGREAD)

There is a disconnect between the top brass in the military and their strategy in the war against Radical Islamic Terrorism. At the root is postmodern moral relativism, widely propagated in every branch of academia: truth is subjective and every idea is equally valid. It led to the narrative devised in the State Dept. that if we deny that Islam is rooted in terrorism, we can stop radicalization [1]. In the following post Rajesh Chaudhary illustrates the chasm between the liberal mind and reality.














War on Terror: cutting twigs, instead of the roots.

The war machine and the people who guide it, the whole industrial military complex in America is based on industry. They have their own think-tanks, they have these smart sleek Harvard and Yale University graduates who join these think-tanks or are employed in companies that specialize in regional issues. Their titles and papers create an aura of knowledge. They are the geniuses. But all these wars being fought after Vietnam are not about the ideology of Communism. They are against the doctrine of Islam.

ANALYSIS: CHINA, AFGHANISTAN AND THE BELT & ROAD PLAN

Since taking power eight years ago, President Xi has massively increased China's military, economic, and political influence. With the Americans vacating Afghanistan and the Middle East, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is now ready to take on its leading role as global dominant power. Xi stressed in his Davos speech on January 2021 that he has the "Mandate of Heaven" to rule the world. And all the while China continues to cover up the origin of the COVID-19 virus.



Aug. 20, 2021 Crossroads/Joshua Philipp: Live Q&A: China Holds Assault Drills Threatening Taiwan.

China is the Godfather of the Taliban.  Last week a meeting was held between Chinese foreign ministry officials and the American Under Secretary of State. It was a very heated meeting, both parties lecturing each other on various issues. It was all very reminiscent of the Alaska summit in March, the last time China humiliated the Biden administration on the world stage.

FREEDOM FOR CUBA: THE HEAD OF THE SNAKE

For over 60 decades the Cuban people have been suffering under Castro Communism. The regime is using the collapse of the tourist industry due to the corona outbreak as cover for the protests. The truth is, the people have had enough of their island prison. According to one doctrine, Cuba is the head of the snake. If Cuba falls, all Latin America's commie regimes fall. 


July 12, 2021 Thousands of Cubans take to the streets demanding freedom.

The Biden administration has to decide very fast: are they supporting the people, or the regime. The media have taken over the talking point of El Presidente, rioting is blamed on corona. The protesters have taking Castro's slogan, "Patria o Muerte" and turned it on its head; they want life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Venezuela is actually running the show in Cuba. Key is the Cuban military. What side will they take?

UKRAINE: THE FINAL PIECE

Remember the Arab Spring and similar "spontaneous, indiginous uprisings in the Obama/Clinton era? Remember the Orange Revolution and the Maidan uprising in Ukraine? Remember the Russian Collusion Investigations probing Russia's relations with the Trump Campaign in 2016? Glenn Beck is connecting the dots and explains what it all had to do with the impeachment of President Trump under the guise of 'withholding aid to Ukraine'. Read also "The Ukranian Trial".



Glenn Beck Presents: Ukraine: The Final Piece.

UPDATE: The media and the Left drove the narrative from the start on the July 25 phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Zelensky. They wanted us to see only one thing. It’s time to look at more. Glenn Beck connects the dots between the phone call that led to the impeachment of President Trump and why an investigation into Hunter Biden is so important.

JUST WAR THEORY? WHY WE CAVED TO IRAN

For the last century or so most wars waged by the West are fought under the Geneva Conventions, rooted in Just War Theory of Neo Platonist Church Father St. Augustine, who was rather big on original sin, self sacrifice and guilt culture. The theory tightly describes a number of conditions that justify going to war. But in practice this international law functions as a handicap to those sent into it to actually fight it. 



Michael Walzer explains Just War Theory (JWT). The doctrine is a Western construct based, not on the brutal reality of war, stateless anarchy and immoral combatants, but on an ideal world. More information in the introduction at the bottom of the page. 

UPDATE: Forget about the intricate details of our nuclear agreement with Iran—the number of centrifuges permitted, the degree of uranium enrichment allowed, the amount of advance notification required before inspectors can visit a nuclear facility. There is really only one question that matters: If an Iranian nuclear capacity poses an objective threat to America—if we have reason to fear that such weapons will be used aggressively against us—why are we relying for our safety on an agreement with the aggressor?

GLOBALISM: THE LIBERAL DEMOCRATIC WORLD VIEW

In the United States and all over Europe Nationalism (or Nationism) is on the rise. It isn't the virulent, ethnic version that pitted nation against nation in previous centuries. Rather, it's based on shared Western values, like individual rights and democracy. But what does Nationalism 2.0 have to offer that Globalism does not? 


UPDATE: Manhattan Institute scholar and Thatcher biographer Claire Berlinski - not your average batshit crazy lefty -- provides us with an unique insight into the mindset of the traditional liberal democrat, post World War 2 world view. It reflects the default perspective of the Democrat Party. It is only now that President Trump exposes the essentially anti American fallacies and corruptions in that doctrine. Read in Threadreader:

SOVIET DEFECTOR EXPLAINS PROCESS OF DEMORALIZATION

This interview from the Cold War explains much of today's world and the mindset of the people that help shaping it. Communism has collapsed, but the mental process the KGB set in motion decades ago, is still wreaking havoc on the mindset of generations of indoctrinated, useful idiots. The process of demoralization is frozen in time.

 

Listen up and listen carefully to Soviet defector, Yuri Bezmenov. You may hear this only once. Present interview has a habit of disappearing. 

UPDATE: Annotated version of the interview when Yuri Bezmenov explains how the Communist take over of a country works.

STRATEGY (1): SUN TZU, THE ART OF WAR

War is an art. War is deception. War is the will to win. War is convincing the enemy he cannot win. War is more than breaking things and killing people. War is philosophy, psychology and brain power.



Oct. 5, 2021 The Art of War by Sun Tzu (Entire Unabridged Audiobook).

The Art of War is an ancient Chinese military treatise that is attributed to Sun Tzu (also referred to as "Sunzi" and "Sun Wu"), a high ranking military general and strategist during the late Spring and Autumn period (some scholars believe that the Art of War was not completed until the subsequent Warring States period. Composed of 13 chapters, each of which is devoted to one aspect of warfare, it is said to be the definitive work on military strategies and tactics of its time, and is still read for its military insights. The Art of War is one of the oldest and most successful books on military strategy in the world.

STRATEGY (3): SPECIAL WAR

What have minor conflicts in Abkhazia, South Ossetia, Nagorno-Karabakh, Transnistria, Novorossiya, Chechnya, the Baltics, Georgia, Crimea, Ukraine and Hungary have in common? All are examples of Russia involved in what is known as 'Special War'. So what is it? 


May 19, 2020 VIDEO of Russian FSB Snipers in Ukraine. 

The conflict in Ukraine is a good example of what is known as Special Warfare -- an amalgam of espionage, subversion, even forms of terrorism to attain political ends without actually going to war in any conventional sense. Also diplomacy, misinformation and disinformation play an important role in Special War. Special war is the default setting for countries that are unable or unwilling to fight major wars, but there are prerequisites, above all a degree of cunning and a willingness to accept operational risk to achieve strategic aims.

STRATEGY (2): MACHIAVELLI, THE PRAGMATIST

Most contemporary politicians hold the view that ends can only be achieved by negotiation and by a Pragmatic take on 'what works'. Consensus leads to the best results for the majority. If that doesn't specifically specifies what is the Good, that is not an accident of nature. 



Five Part docu and audio book about Niccolò Machiavelli (1469–1527), an Italian historian, politician, diplomat, philosopher, humanist, and writer based in Florence during the Renaissance. (Wiki)

Officially Pragmatism is rooted in 19th Century America. Unofficially its principles are much older. Machiavelli was a typical Pragmatist. The philosophy of Pragmatism is a rejection of the idea that the function of thought is knowledge of objective reality. Instead, pragmatists consider thought to be a product of the interaction between organism and environment. The function of thought is a tool for prediction, action, and problem solving, not for knowledge of reality as such. According to Pragmatism, philosophical topics — such as the nature of knowledge, language, concepts, meaning, belief, and science — must be seen in terms of their practical uses and successes rather than in terms of accuracy. It leads to a very curious, irrational and amoral world view. This makes it quite dangerous in the hands of the wrong people.

FIGHTING TERRORISM OR APPEASING ISLAM?

"This is war", declared the French President Francois Hollande yesterday, after the attacks on Paris in which over 120 people were killed and many more were wounded. The awareness that this is in fact a war, is a new one and a step forward. But how could the West make such a basic mistake?



Sebastian Gorka, the Major General Matthew C. Horner Distinguished Chair of Military Theory at Marine Corps University.

Despite the fact that Obama had just declared that Islamic State has finally been contained (source), the terror group managed to kill 224 people in a Russian airliner over Sinai, 41 in the Beirut bombings, and well over 120  in Paris, and counting. It is clear that this war is far from over. It is actually only just beginning. But it won't happen until the West understands that, in order to win it,  it has to break the back of Islamo Fascism. It is therefore becoming more than urgent to set the record straight over a policy that has been failing us since the Iranian Revolution of 1979. The West, and primarily the US, must first make some very, very hard choices. We can either fight terrorism, or we can appease Muslim countries. We can't do both.

(VIDEO) ISLAMIC STATE SMASHING 3,000 YEAR OLD ASSYRIAN ARTEFACTS

In the last few days reports keep coming in of hundreds of Assyrian Christians abducted from their villages. (Source) In the margins of that terrible news cultural cleansing is taking place at unprecedented pace, part of the official definition of genocide. 



Feb 27, 2015 CBS: ISIS terrorists take the hatchet to priceless 3,000 year old Assyrian artifacts in Nineveh Museum, Mosul. H/t @Kromst

The Islamic State released a video on Thursday showing militants using sledgehammers to smash ancient artifacts in Mosul. There is no place in the reborn world for three thousand year old 'idolatry'. These aren't 'idols' as such, but that Biblical commandment is just an excuse anyway. The psycho-epistemology that moves these primitives is plain. These Utopians want to rid their post revolutionary world of all impure thoughts. They mean to destroy ideas, which is why they destroyed the people first. Taking the hatchet to the symbols of their past is just the final nail in the coffin.

#CHARLIEHEBDO REPORTS ON JANUARY 7, 8, 9, 10, 2015

Terror at the offices of the French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo. Two brothers, Said and Cherif Kouachi now killed, 26 yod hostage freed from a print shop near Charles de Gaulle airport. At a Jewish grocery in the east of Paris, 4 hostages as well as terrorist Amedy Coulibaly have been killed. Some confusion over the whereabouts of Hayat Boumediene.




Depiction of the West committing suicide because it has a blindspot for the enemy, who it thinks of as an equal. 


THE LEFT ARE ON THE JOB FIGHTING THE ENEMY

The lunatics are running the asylum. Truly. The Left are totally obsessed with a bunch of NIMBY petty bourgeois in Germany and an admittedly more formidable anti EU and anti Islam movement in France. So much so, they have become blind to the true enemy of our Enlightenment civilization who are killing people by the thousands! But that's OK, because they are a minority and "not us". We live in truly remarkable times.


TURKEY'S AK PARTY: "CHARLIE HEBDO KILLERS ARE MARTYRS"

Muslim Brother Erdogan is completely out of control, but the "international community" is looking the other way. Because it is "unthinkable" the civilized world would ever let go of its bridgehead into Asia, Turkey. Here's what our correspondent just brought to our attention. As we said earlier, the stench of hypocrisy is almost unbearable.



#CHARLIEHEBDO INSPIRES FEMEN STYLE KORAN BURNING

Posted on Live Leak yesterday in France. Given the time and place it is probably inspired by the cluster of terrorism in the country: a FEMEN style Koran burning! Go Girls! The posting on YouTube has been removed for "fraud and copyright" related issues (or something).



A French speaking women burns the Quran in Femen style. Wait for the topless part or skip to minute 02:08.



THE STENCH OF HYPOCRISY IS THICK IN THE AIR

The world is wallowing in hypocrisy. The stench is overwhelming. And it is going to be worse tomorrow! A few people close to Charlie Hebdo can't take it any more. Among them, a Dutch cartoonist working for CH who hates editorial meetings, and Jeannette Bougrab the wife of Charlie Hebdo’s editor-in-chief Stéphane 'Charb' Charbonnier. Bougrab, a junior minister in the previous government and a member of the center-right UMP party, said she was speaking as "a French woman of Arab origin" when she said there was no such thing as moderate Islam.
"The same people who are now yelling "Je Suis Charlie" called my husband an Islamophobe and a racist only a few weeks back!"
A prominent Dutch cartoonist at Charlie Hebdo heaped scorn on the French satirical weekly’s “new friends” since the massacre at its Paris offices on Wednesday. “We have a lot of new friends, like the pope, Queen Elizabeth and (Russian President Vladimir) Putin. It really makes me laugh,” Bernard Holtrop, whose pen name is Willem, told the Dutch centre-left daily Volkskrant in an interview published today. France’s far-right National Front leader “Marine Le Pen is delighted when the Islamists start shooting all over the place,” said Willem, 73, a long-time Paris resident who also draws for the French leftist daily Liberation. He added: “We vomit on all these people who suddenly say they are our friends.” (Source)

#CHARLIEHEBDO HIJACKED BY THE LEFT

To the Left everything is politics! They are hijacking #CharlieHebdo and turn it into a crusade against the Right wing party, Front National who currently represent some 30% of the vote. That's the Leftist approach to democracy and 'unity' for you. But of course FN are fascist racist haters, so that's OK. One particularly vicious message is a plea to Muslims not to engage in any more terror attacks, because this "might bring the Right to power". Muslims are also doing their part to whip up the hatred, mostly their own.

A minute of silence in the schools. Many Muslim children refuse to participate.

Jihad is war, not crime


The situation in Paris shows the futility of "curing" Islamic terrorists with prison sentences. Jihadism isn't crime, it's war. It proves how right the Bush administration was to just remove terrorists from the battle field, interning them in Guantanamo Bay. Enemy combatants must be removed from the battle field. So you don't jail them for 2 years, then release them on to the public, as was clearly the case with one of the Kouachi brothers. The brothers have been on the radar of the authorities for years! This is taking unnecessary risks. This is not unethical. POW are taken in every war, for the duration of the war! It's unethical to take unnecessary risks with the lives of innocent civilians if it is your duty to protect them.

Liberty, 10 Years After the Killing of Theo van Gogh

Ten years to the day after the slaughter of Theo van Gogh, let's look back and see where we stand. Those willing to face facts, see a frightening reality that is an existential threat to humanity and the entire civilization.


Painting by Philip Awuy: Pim Fortuyn, Theo van Gogh, Ayaan Hirsi Ali - H/t @PeterSiebelt

There is one important difference standing out between today and ten years ago. At the time many thought that Islam is a morally neutral movement, like say, liberalism or rock 'n roll. A cultural idea that free people are at liberty to practice if they so wish. It has taken some time to figure out, that an idea that is directly opposed to the Good, isn't a moral equal, but an enemy. Many have managed to make that cognitive step. But the genocides in Iraq and Syria, the enslavement of women and children, the crucifixions, the looting, the floggings and the stonings on a massive scale have not been able to penetrate the teflon layer that separates the evaders from reality, leaders like Barack Obama, that labor under the insane view that "Islam has nothing to do with Islamic State" and that "no religion condones terrorism". Read the ffing Koran, I say!
