FIRST PRINCIPLES: FIRST IMPRESSIONS ABOUT AMERICA

Vassar Bushmills

Anyone, anywhere, who hears the name “America” already has a first impression about America; either positive or negative. It doesn’t matter if he/she is 18 or 80, and located anywhere in the world.

If abroad those impressions are a mixture of street talk, music, films, and of course, relatives who may have traveled there or live. One man from one village can go to America, and everyone in that valley has a impression of America that no government can conceal.

I knew such a family from Dayton whose father had come to America from a village in Slovakia before WWII, taking work in a steel mill. He left a wife and son back home. Just before the war he went back to bring his wife to America. But he had to leave his 6-year old behind with relatives to secure the family lands. Once in America, Papa and Mama Miluks started a new family, his youngest son my best friend for many years from the Army. In the late 1970s, while on duty in Germany, he was allowed to travel to Slovakia and meet his eldest brother and see the village and old home place, and of course, take gifts. When I visited his family in Dayton Mama Miluks showed me the special place she kept all her letters from her son, who she had not seen since 1940. But those letters! She wrote many-paged reports every week for over 40 years, giving a weekly account of things going on with his papa and brothers and sister, learning quickly to never speak of certain things, for by ’46 the Communists had moved in and her letters were first read and redacted by postal censors, cutting all references to the availability of consumer goods commonly available in America, especially food. Her son, in turn, would reply with heavily redacted letters. He would die in the early 1990’s of the general poor heath common to socialist countries so was never able to join his family. He never met his other two younger brothers or sister. And of course his last personal memory of his parents was when he was 6.

But I am quite sure every adult in that village had clear impressions of America because of Mr Miluks, who went to America.

I tell this story because one, it’s true, and two, it is, next to the Christian’s ideal of Heaven, an impression of America as a place that one has never been and most wants to go, which cannot be duplicated anywhere else. I have met people in several countries and four continents, including Palestinian Arabs (on an overnight sleeper in Russia) and from all I hear basically the same thing, “If only I could go to America.”

(This is not what we are seeing today on our southern border, by the way, so I won’t take this discussion in that direction, although just 30-40 years ago, down there, where I also lived, this was a common refrain, “If I can only get to America.” I deal with this subject in an upcoming conversation about Assimilation, which should be a topic of policy discussion if we can ever get fully in charge or our government again.)

So, abroad, America is viewed through two entirely different prisms, divided by two classes: 1) the political class and 2) all the rest[…]

“The Magic Flute,” (1791) By W. A. Mozart, Must Be Banned! It Contains Blackface, Disparaging Remarks, And A Noose! (Satire)

“The Magic Flute,” (1791) By W. A. Mozart, Must Be Banned! It Contains Blackface, Disparaging Remarks, And A Noose! (Satire)

SATIRE: BY JEFFREY A FRIEDBERG

—————<>—————

I HAD JUST SAMPLED about 8 versions of “The Magic Flute,” (1791), By W. A. Mozart, and settled on two; they’re all different.

It was then, I heard about the “unpardonable sins” committed by Kate Smith— the iconic, female, white, Christian singer. Kate had once been YUGE in my native Philadelphia.

Can I say that? “Native?”

Anyway—in Philadelphia, back in the day—the Philly Flyers would not play hockey unless Kate sang.

So. What the hell did Kate do to get banned by the Yankees and have her statue covered up in Philly?

Well. Kate Smith sang some songs that said things.

As a result, she has been killed off by the PC Police, serving en masse as enforcement, law, and judge. One can only hope this group includes reported, spotlessly righteous luminaries such as Robert De Niro, Rob Reiner,  Jim Carrey, Bill Maher, and —yes—hopefully—even Cher Herself.

What does this have to do with Wolfgang Amadeus “Adolph” Mozart and “The Magic Flute?”

Well. Mozart’s composition called, “The Magic Flute,” a racist work we assuredly can do without, apparently revels in black face and makes odious remarks about the black people.

Odious Blackface, openly displayed in “The Magic Flute.”

And—abomination of abominations—“The Magic Flute,” openly displays a NOOSE!

And I’m not talking just a rope or string, but an actual

   NOOSE!

Mozart, was a minor racist writer whose contributions to Western Culture are considered by many to have been Nothing.

Further—in addition to racist Presidents like Washington, and Jefferson, eight other US—“Never Great”—Presidents “owned” slaves.

Und dey vill not escape us! Statutes can be smashed und deleted, in von, beeg, Communist blow for for Freedom!

It was suggested that the following (below in chart) dishonored names OF USA Presidents be replaced with “more honorable” names, such as:  Marx, Lenin, Trotsky, Beria, Stalin, Mao, Fidel, Kim, and others.

(AFTER the chart, learn about your guilt, white privilege und how ve vill make you pay money.)

From Wikipedia:

President Approximate number
of slaves held
While in office? Notes
1 George Washington 317 Yes (1789–1797) Washington was a major slaveholder before, during, and after his presidency. His will freed his slaves pending the death of his widow, though she freed his slaves within a year of his death. See George Washington and slavery for more details.
3 Thomas Jefferson 600+ Yes (1801–1809) Most historians believe Jefferson fathered multiple children with his quadroonslave Sally Hemings, the half-sister of his late wife Martha Wayles Skelton. See Thomas Jefferson and slavery for more details.
4 James Madison 100+ Yes (1809–1817) Madison proposed the Three-Fifths Compromise, which counted slaves as three fifths of a person for the purposes of taxation and legislative representation. He did not free his slaves in his will. Paul Jennings, one of Madison’s slaves, served him during his presidency and later published the first memoir of life in the White House.
5 James Monroe 75 Yes (1817–1825) Monroe supported sending freed slaves to the new country of Liberia; its capital, Monrovia, is named after him. See James Monroe#Slavery for more details.
7 Andrew Jackson <200 Yes (1829–1837) Jackson owned many slaves and faced several controversies related to slaveryduring his presidency. During his campaign for the presidency, he faced criticism for being a slave trader. He did not free his slaves in his will.
8 Martin Van Buren 1 No Van Buren’s father owned six slaves. The only slave he personally owned, Tom, escaped in 1814. When Tom was found in Massachusetts, Van Buren tentatively agreed to sell him to the finder, but terms were not agreed and Tom remained free. Later in life, Van Buren belonged to the Free Soil Party, which opposed the expansion of slavery into the Western territories without advocating for abolitionism outright.
9 William Henry Harrison 11 No Harrison inherited several slaves. As the first governor of the Indiana Territory, he unsuccessfully lobbied Congress to legalize slavery in Indiana.
10 John Tyler 70 Yes (1841–1845) Tyler never freed any of his slaves and consistently supported slavery and its expansion during his time in political office.
11 James K. Polk 25 Yes (1845–1849) Polk became the Democratic nominee for president in 1844 partially because of his tolerance of slavery, in contrast to Van Buren. He generally supported slavery as president. His will provided for the freeing of his slaves after the death of his wife, though the Emancipation Proclamation and the Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution ended up freeing them long before her death in 1891.
12 Zachary Taylor <150 Yes (1849–50) Although Taylor owned slaves throughout his life, he generally resisted attempts to expand slavery in the territories. After his death, there were rumors that slavery advocates had poisoned him; tests of his body over 100 years later have been inconclusive.
17 Andrew Johnson 8 No Johnson owned a few slaves and was supportive of James K. Polk’s slavery policies. As military governor of Tennessee, he convinced Abraham Lincoln to exempt that area from the Emancipation Proclamation.
18 Ulysses S. Grant 1 No Although he later served as a general in the Union Army, his wife Julia had control of four slaves during the war, given to her by her father. However, it is unclear if she actually was granted legal ownership of them or merely temporary custody.[2] All would be freed by the Emancipation Proclamation of 1863 (she chose to free them at that time even though the proclamation did not apply to her state of Missouri).[3] Grant is known to have personally owned one slave, William Jones, from 1857 to 1859.[4]

Anyway, don’t worry about your obvious guilt and “white privilege” if you are white. Because if  Democrats take the Presidency in. 2020, you WILL be made to pay “Reparations” to the victims of slavehood.

Even if your ancestors were being slaughtered or locked up in Europe at that time.

You will still be guilty but liable to pay reparations to folks of coleur—all they way from Al Sharpton to Liz Warren.

You VILL feel better!

Ve Vill MAKE YOU!

As I understand it, I think the only “folks” who will NOT have to pay reparations, may be those who actually did the slaving and slave-selling:

   Muslims, Black Africans, and the English.

Notre Dame Burns, And A Civilization With It

Today, Paris’s centuries old cathedral Notre Dame caught on fire and is in the process of being destroyed. The world famous spire and roof of the Gothic cathedral are gone, and the wooden structure that’s  supporting the roof is being destroyed by the blaze. It is quite likely that if Notre Dame is ever rebuilt, it will both take years, cost a great deal and lack the historic milleau of its predecessor, built in the 12th century and completed a century later. A century to build, a day to destroy…

Officially, the fire is being referred to by the authorities as an ‘accident occurring while renovation work was in progress. ‘ While this might be true, the complete destruction involved is against it. To think of this as an accident is to assume the following:

1.The timing (holy week) and the recent previous vandalizing of Churches throughout France in recent weeks at Saint-Sulpice and Saint Denis (and its priceless pipe organ) are just, you know, coincidences. ( Just in passing, the media isn’t reporting much on this)

2. The Muslims in Paris are very  peaceful, law abiding and respect other religions.

3 The construction crew doing the repairs would never hire Muslims.

3) No Muslim or Muslims would risk their jobs to  take the opportunity to destroy one of Christianity’s most famous buildings in Holy Week.

4 The construct crew was so incompetent that they set multiple fires in different parts of the area they were working on…whoopsie.

Let’s just say Je suis très sceptique. *

On the other hand, we all know the timing and the previous vandalism of France’s churches is suspicious, also that generally, speaking many Muslims in Paris are neither peaceful, law abiding or respectful of other people’s religions in the least. And that it Muslim migrants frequently are involved in construction work, and that any construction company entrusted with working on a famous landmark and a major tourist attraction would be chosen by the City of Paris based on their track record of safety and successful completion of jobs like this.

The last I heard, the fire had spread to Ile de la Cité, a pleasant little  island in the Seine within the city of Paris. The population of about 1,000 people has been evacuated. The Seine isn’t particularly wide there, so there’s the unpleasant possibility of spreading further.

Eh Bien, what happens if the authorities find out it was Muslims who burned down Notre Dame?

My guess would be nothing. Much of France’s media has already bought into surrender, and President Macron’s victory in what was one of France’s few crooked elections was definitely helped by a Muslim block vote, especially in Paris and Marseilles. So in my opinion, no matter what this will be kept quiet and marked down as an accident…tres triste, n’est pah?**

Even if it does go public, the media will caution against, you know, hate speech. After all, what’s a few centuries of civilization? Even Pope Francis would likely call for calm and tolerance.

What Hitler and the Nazis couldn’t do, France’s invited ‘guests’ seem to have begun, and not just in Paris. The match has been lit. We’ll see what happens.

 

* I’m very skeptical.

**Very sad, isn’t it?

THE INTERNET AND SATAN’S GAME BY BISHOP ROBERT BARREN

Vassar Bushmills

(If you like what Bishop Barren has said here, please go to the Catholic World Report, and give them and Bishop Barren an attaboy. He has provided an important link to understanding the structural phenomenon we’re encountering, which is the strategy, plowing the row, so to speak, of a new type of  authoritarian government through Gestapo tactics, as with the establishment of the Third Reich in the early days of Hitler, employed BEFORE their new kind of government is actually installed. Alinsky also had this in mind. This is not a Soviet-style strategy.

(A big difference, and it matters that we know in advance what sort of Evil we are confronting, for if it is to preempted, we have to launch the preemption ourselves. We cannot rely on government until we also plow the row.)

By now the entire country has seen a video of a supposedly racist confrontation, in front of the Lincoln Memorial, between a grinning young high school student and a Native American elder, chanting and beating a drum. The immediate and ferocious judgment of the internet community was that the boy was effectively taunting and belittling the elder, but subsequent videos from wider angles as well as the young man’s own testimony have cast considerable doubt on this original assessment. My purpose in this article is not to adjudicate the situation, which remains, at best, ambiguous, even in regard to the basic facts. It is to comment, rather, on the morally outrageous and deeply troubling nature of the response to this occurrence, one that I would characterize as, quite literally, Satanic.

When the video in question first came to my attention, it already had millions of views on Facebook and had been commented upon over 50,000 times. Eager to find out what this was all about, I began to scroll through the comments. They were practically one hundred percent against the young man, and they were marked, as is customary on social media, by stinging cruelty. As I continued to survey the reactions, I began to come across dozens urging retribution against the boy, and then dozens more that provided the addresses and email contacts of his parents, his school, and his diocese. I remember thinking, “Oh my goodness, do they realize what they’re doing? They’re effectively destroying, even threatening, this kid’s life.”

At this point, my mind turned, as it often does today, to René Girard. The great Franco-American philosopher and social commentator is best known for his speculations on what he called the scapegoating mechanism. Sadly, Girard maintained, most human communities, from the coffee klatch to the nation state, are predicated upon this dysfunctional and deeply destructive instinct. Roughly speaking, it unfolds as follows. When tensions arise in a group (as they inevitably do), people commence to cast about for a scapegoat, for someone or some group to blame. Deeply attractive, even addictive, the scapegoating move rapidly attracts a crowd, which in short order becomes a mob. In their common hatred of the victim, the blamers feel an ersatz sense of togetherness. Filled with the excitement born of self-righteousness, the mob then endeavors to isolate and finally eliminate the scapegoat, convinced that this will restore order to their roiled society. At the risk of succumbing to the reductio ad Hitlerum fallacy, nowhere is the Girardian more evident than in the Germany of the 1930s. Hitler ingeniously exploited the scapegoating mechanism to bring his country together—obviously in a profoundly wicked way[…]

Leftist Ideologues and Media ‘s False Lincoln Memorial Narrative Excluded Black Israelites.

Nathan Phillips

Anyone who viewed the incident that occurred last Friday at the Lincoln Memorial in its entirety, is instantly suspect of accusations levied by Progressive extremists that Covington Catholic High School students mocked, harassed and shouted “build that wall” at a 60-something Native American Vietnam War veteran at the same time as Black Hebrew Israelites defamed everyone in sight.

Peeling Back the Lies

Days later, cat out of the bag, we now have the answer.  No effort or research was to get to the truth or better yet, reveal the truth.  Then there is the news that Native American elder, Randall Phillips, while a Native American, an elder and a veteran, Phillips was never deployed to Vietnam, as finally noted in the last paragraph of one of several Washington Post articles.

Correction: Earlier versions of this story incorrectly said that Native American activist Nathan Phillips fought in the Vietnam War. Phillips served in the U.S. Marines from 1972 to 1976 but was never deployed to Vietnam.

Phillips is a radical left-wing activist (see 15:48 of Glenn Beck video further down in post), dishonest and looking to take advantage of the opening to create chaos as presented before him courtesy of the Black Hebrew Israelites up to their own mischief, which Phillips did.

Exposing Nathan Phillips

(screenshot)

About claims that Covington students shouted, “build that wall,” they did not. The Black Hebrew Israelites are the ones who shouted, as can be heard in Glenn Beck’s video “build that wall.,” “build that damned wall.”  Nathan Phillips is the typical Marxist ideologue, an open border advocate, professional agitator and not beneath feeding the media the propaganda that they so crave.

Phillips is a trouble-maker with a history.

In the video several paragraphs down, Glenn Beck breaks down moment by moment events as they unfurled involving the vile assault and smear campaign against male students of Covington Catholic High School last Friday and as it turns out the nasty verbal assault on Native Americans , Black Americans, White folks, etc. during rallies at the Lincoln Memorial, the blame of which was laid at the feet of innocent white teens by the Communist media complex.  It wasn’t long before the truth surfaced that they were pedaling lies and fake news.

(screenshot) Black Israelites taking on Native American

As not reported by the media is that the Black Hebrew Israelites incited the cesspool of evil and hate that spread faster than the flu.  Nathan Phillips saw an opportunity as others who happened to be at the right place at the precise moment. Sensing the opportunity to draw blood (no pun intended), it took less than a New York minute to instigate a lynch mob on social media that spread across day and night time talk shows against teens because of the color of their skin, their MAGA hats, the fact they are Catholic, young and could not defend themselves.

Make no mistake about it, this was an attack on President Donald J. Trump and since the President was not available, high school students of Covington Catholic High School who attended last Friday’s March of Life rally would do nicely. (sarcasm) Now that’s pretty damned despicable!

SIDEBAR

Here in New York City, I have on several occasions crossed paths with Black Hebrew Israelites.  While attending college, these bastards (and I use the term lightly) because I refused to engage them verbally assaulted me and other females as we headed to class. 

There was this one incident that occurred years ago at a party I attended. Two Black Hebrew Israelites attending the same party kept interrupting a discussion between me and a girlfriend of mine.  As time went on, these two men who appeared to be at least 15 years older grew more agitated and hostile (we were in our early 20’s at the time of the incident).  Sensing that they had an agenda, I phoned my brother who ten minutes later arrived out front in a taxi at which point, my girlfriend and I made a hasty exit.

Their modus operandi with females is to make them feel less than worthy after which point, the not so confident female is reeled in to a personal relationship and a life of hell. I was having none of it.  Thank goodness our parents warned us about these men.

Years later, when my son was in high school, Black Hebrew Israelites attempted to recruit him.  I am thankful that he was smart enough to ask me about them.  They are dangerous.  They tend to be more forceful with teenagers and occasionally (to my knowledge) have resorted to violence to reel in young people as they did one of my son’s classmates.

END OF SIDEBAR

(screenshot)

As Beck in the following video takes the time to breaks moment by moment what has been overlooked, the media with the blessings of the ruling class did the country a disservice by failing to acknowledge these creeps.  By doing so, they have empowered the Black Hebrew Israelites who will now take the ball and run-down court with it.

 

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) and the Anti-Defamation League have both labeled “factions” of the Black Hebrew Israelites a hate group, which they are,.  However, considering the alliances of the SPLC and ADL, the rationale for labeling the Black Hebrew Israelites has more to do with the fact that the “factions” cannot be controlled. Speaking of “factions,” through my travels, I have encountered or witnessed them when on their bully pulpit and find absolutely no difference in their lexicon.

Furthermore, as one who grew up, traveled, went to school, church and shopped in the same community where there are Black Hebrew Israelites and one who has on more than occasion been targeted by them, they are bad news. Yet, the MeToo Movement being who they are would never take them on nor would their fellow extremists, Black, Hispanic and otherwise.

Advice to tourists visiting New York or any other city — Should you come across this group, keep walking. For some reason, tourists many of whom are Caucasians see this group as a form of entertainment.  Wth? 

If you notice in the video below which is in its entirety, uninterrupted, the Black Hebrew Israelites appeal to the people in the crowd to aks them a question.  Don’t do it.  It is at this point that they launch a hateful tirade that goes on forever after which one is expected to pay them for having denigrated and cursing you out.  Don’t get it twisted, they are not there for your amusement and for those who would beg to differ, allow me to use the words of my mother (God bless her), “what are you, a glutton for punishment?”

Warning: The following videos contain – Racist , Raw and Offensive Language.

VIDEO CLIPS (CLEANER) FROM ANOTHER ANGLE:

Below is a video of a not so friendly exchange between the Black Hebrew Israelites and Native Americans whom they refer to as “GAD” because “Indian” means savage…for starters. (Note: I have not confirmed it either way.)

I gather that women should not be heard? “Okay, sister, so what is your problem?” (07:50 of video)

By now Native Americans are banging their drums and chanting, no doubt in response to the rantings of the Black Supremacists. This, of course, is where one begins to get the feeling that if things continue at this pace, all hell will break loose as the Black Hebrew Israelites who have attacked every ethnicity at the Lincoln Memorial makes their way around to President Donald J. Trump, white people, the Catholic Church and “a Five-Dollar Indian?”

And the attacks on teens who pretty much, to their credit, ignored the Black Supremacists:

Throw in a decade plus of propaganda, the knowledge that the deep state through its media operatives has brainwashed millions and Buzzfeed‘s history of fake news, the latest of which resulted in Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller disputing the propagandist’s report that President Donald J. Trump instructed Michael Cohen to make false statements to Congress, there can be no denying that the media is the enemy of the people.
