МАМОНОВ

Pyotr Mamonov / Пётр Мамонов (Ostrov)

Пётр Мамонов


In 1990, Pyotr Mamonov (Пётр Мамонов) of the music-band Zvuki Mu (Звуки Му) starred in a Soviet kike propaganda movie, Taxi Blues. Kike Pavel Lungin was awarded the "Best Director" award at Cannes, 1990.

Mamonov played Ivan Shlykov, a hard-working Russian taxi driver who is cheated by Alexi Lyosha, "a flaky, westernized, Jewish jazz musician who represents everything the taxi driver despises ... and secretly desires." "Flaky" alcoholic Zhid Alexi cheats serious Roosky Ivan out of the taxi-fare, so Ivan tracks the Kike down. The two men "develop a bizarre love-hate relationship." When the Kike lets the bath water run over in Ivan's flat, and Ivan is billed 500 rubles for repairs, the Russian tries to force the Kike into day labor, to repay him. Suddenly, the Kike is "discovered", and goes on a tour of America, where he becomes a celebrity. He return to the USSR in trimuph. "Ivan longs to renew the friendship", and the two men then "realize they aren't so different after all." Isn't that nice? [Quotes from the movie distributor's sales-spiel.]

Mamonov was bapiized in the 1990s, and went to live in the Russian countryside, a couple of hours by bus from Moscow.

In 2006, Mamonov starred in Ostrov / The Island.

"Somewhere in Northern Russia, in a small Russian Orthodox monastery, lives a very unusual man. His fellow monks are confused by his bizarre conduct. Those who visit the island believe that the man has the power to heal, exorcise demons and foretell the future. However, he considers himself unworthy because of a sin he committed in his youth. A parable about faith and salvation, The Island combines the realities of everyday Russian life with monastic ritual and routine."





OSTROV PLOT 'SPOILERS':

"During World War II, the sailor Anatoly and his captain, Tikhon are captured by the Nazis when they board their barge and tugboat which is carrying a shipment of coal. The Nazi officer leading the raid offers Anatoly the choice to shoot Tikhon and stay alive which Anatoly reluctantly takes, and Tikhon falls overboard. The Nazis blow up the ship but Anatoly is found by monks on the shore the next morning. He survives and becomes a stoker at the monastery, but is perpetually overcome with guilt.

"Thirty years pass... Anatoly now has the gift of clairvoyance and healing. But the other monks don't really understand him. People come to see Anatoly for cures and guidance. But even now, he remains in a perpetual state of repentance. He often gets in a boat and goes to an uninhabited island where he prays for mercy and forgiveness.

"A prominent admiral arrives to see Anatoly with his daughter. The daughter is possessed by demons but Anatoly exorcises them. The admiral turns out to be Tikhon. It is revealed that Anatoly only wounded him during the war. Tikhon forgives Anatoly.

"Anatoly can now die peacefully. The monks discover that he has foreknowledge of his death and make him a coffin out of a coal box. he lies down in it, and dies. The coffin is buried on the uninhabited island where he spent his time praying."



PYOTR MAMONOV, 2006:

How entirely perverse is our time! The critics discussed recently Pavel Lunghin’s film Ostrov and they spoke of the Church as if it is something mythical, as if it is Ilya Muromets [a mythical hero].

How will you live if you do not believe in something? I am surrounded by the bewildered on the right and on the left.

But when you have faith, even though you might be tired, you will give your place on the bus to an old lady. This also is Christianity. You go to wash the dishes without them asking it of you. Is this a Christian act? It is.

Do not insist continually that you are right. Do not yell out “the meal is cold”. Be patient two minutes while they reheat it. Your poor wife can do it quickly for you. She also is tired. Everyone has their speed and their preoccupations. Why do you always insist on “the wife is obligated...”, or “the husband deserves...”, and so on...

Love is to walk with someone and to support them. If we see someone fallen with their face in the snow, we quickly assume that they are drunk. What if they suffered a heart attack? Even if someone is drunk, help lift them up, and provide him protection so he will not freeze. But no, we continue along on our way. We escape even from ourselves. We should live not saying “give me”, but “take from me”. Many do not understand what it is to give their shirt they are wearing. We have become accustomed to living backwards.

Whatever is pleasing to God we reject.

Most importantly, do not hesitate to help the weak. For us, the opposite is true - we "swallow" them. The rich take from the poor even the little they have. He steals as much as possible and hides behind tall fences, in order for others to not take from him.

We have a distorted perception of Christianity. Things are simple however. How much of your blood will you spill for another? It is written: "Inasmuch as you do it for the least of My brethren, you do it for Me" (Matt. 25:40).

To be able to sit at the bedside as long as possible of your mother who suffers from old age and sickness; this is where and how we are to die daily!

Just as the children who were sent to Chechnya. A cretin threw a grenade and a colonel fell on it. He did not hesitate and was killed. He saved eight people. He was a communist. Unbaptized. But he thought as a Christian.

How does it benefit you to go to church and yet for your heart to be empty? Empty of Christian acts? You are able to visit all the Holy Mountains and venerate all the relics - for free. You see a poor wretch and think "he must be one of those swindlers shown on television". Give him 50 kopecks [50 pennies]. You won't be impoverished. The real mafia are those five or six who manipulate the masses on television.

We should not interrupt others when they speak. The Holy Fathers teach us to stand before others as though we are in front of an old icon. What does it mean not to judge? To not condemn. We are obligated to have opinions. Christ attempted to make some clarifications to the Pharisees, and His anger was righteous. You are right to be angry at yourself since, for example, last night you got drunk. Hate your sin, your passions, and that which tortures you and you will find a remedy. Only if you deeply hate the sin can you taste the flavor of victory.

Even if I am an adult, every day I try to learn.

Every day I go with the bus to Moscow. Two hours without a stop. In front of me once there were seated two youngsters, drunk. They were swearing and talking very badly. I was shivering as I thought I had to endure this for two hours. But then I thought, "Let's see, who are these youngsters? Did they grow up in a village? What did they see there? The father was a drunk, the mother beat them and swore at them. The television was constantly on. This is the new generation. What can you ask of them? Did I personally teach them something? Did I enter the threshold of their home? Did I read to them a book?" As I exited the labyrinth of my thoughts, I confirmed that we had arrived.

Everything is up to us: how we hear, if our eyes are pure, if our ears are closed, if our soul is unlocked, if our conscience is clean. We need to be occupied with these things.

The saints teach us to work out our own salvation, and that is enough for a lifetime.

What is the plan of action? Fix yourself, even by a millimeter. That millimeter will bring in more light. If we remain only with what we find, nothing will change. The evil, of which we have plenty, will only multiply. Let us lessen the evil. This is what we attempted to do with our humble film Ostrov. Perhaps some critics have a point. Perhaps there is too much "chatter" in the motions. I tried to explain them. We were in a strange situation, a weakness of which we tried with all our might to get out of. Like children, we do not try to understand, but we uphold what happens to a person when they begin to believe and try to know God.

Since we forget that sin is the absence of light, we give it form and make it tangible - with our irritations, with our lack of respect for others, and so on.

What is heaven and what is hell? Our Fathers teach us that everywhere there is an ocean of divine love. Whoever does wrong is punished with the whip of love. Think about it - an ocean of divine love where the whole world is loved. This is what we lack in life - love. This then is hell - lack of love. And if darkness is the absence of light, the dark soul, when it is exposed to the light, melts.

The only thing I want to offer is something from my personal experience. I am like everybody else - weak. But I feel a certain need. I feel the Truth is something urgent, like a lump in my throat. One of the names of Christ is Sun of Truth. We flee to this sun with all our meager powers.

I have read somewhere: "We never live the moment. Even when we sit at the table our thoughts fly off, when to the cucumbers, when to the kvas, when to the soup. Try even for one minute of the day, when you have nothing else to do, to gather within yourself and 'live the moment' in exactly that minute. It is very difficult. The result of such effort is the feeling of the presence of God."

Do I feel like an actor? I am Pyotr Nikolaevich Mamonov. I try to do my job the best that I could. Every moment I give all my strength. In five years I will look back and say: "How were you able to act so terribly?" I will have my conscience clean, because in that moment I did what I could.

This is how it was with the film Ostrov. It made an impression. I tried to help myself and those around me. When Christ entered Jerusalem on an ass, they received Him with flowers and greeted Him with cheers. The animal believed all of it was addressed to him. We are also like the ass which carries Christ. I have many talents, but do I have them according to my worth? A generous hand sowed it, and I live with it. I try not to forget it, not to betray it. I don't have orgasms with my "ego". I understand that I, Pyotr Mamonov, did not do anything by my own worth. What do I have to boast about? To whomever God gives, He asks for it back. We must live all the more pure as we can. Everything is so fragile, unprotected.

Seizure of Ship From Argentina Forces Shake-Up

By [KIKE] Emily Schmall, [KIKE] New York Times, October 18, 2012


BUENOS AIRES — Argentina’s military intelligence director resigned Thursday, the latest casualty in a dispute between Argentina and an American hedge fund over ownership of an Argentine Navy training vessel that is impounded at a port in West Africa.

The departure of María Lourdes Puente Olivera, a civilian and the first woman to lead the intelligence agency, comes two days after the resignation of Argentina’s navy chief and the suspension of two other highly placed navy officials. Those events came amid a Defense Ministry investigation into a last-minute change to the vessel’s itinerary, which had it stop in Ghana rather than Nigeria, as originally planned.

The Libertad, a three-mast tall ship with 330 navy cadets and crew aboard, was seized at Tema, an industrial port east of Ghana’s capital, Accra, on Oct. 2 through a court order obtained by N.M.L. Capital, a holdout creditor from Argentina’s default a decade ago that says it is owed more than $370 million. The creditor is among a few remaining holdouts to refuse debt restructuring agreements in 2005 and 2010. It had tracked the vessel through the Libertad’s Web site.

N.M.L., a subsidiary of [KIKE] Elliott Capital, a New York-based hedge fund with $20 billion under management, offered to release the ship if Argentina paid a $20 million security. It also offered to bear the costs of flying the sailors home.

Argentina’s foreign minister, [KIKE] Héctor Timerman, said in a statement, “The vulture funds have crossed a boundary in their attacks on the Argentine republic.” He said the seizure violated the Vienna Convention, which grants military vessels diplomatic immunity.

A judge in Accra ruled last Friday against that defense, saying Argentina “has in clear terms waived the immunity attributed to the vessel” in the contract it signed with N.M.L. Argentina sent a delegation of junior ministers last week to meet with government officials in Ghana. The Foreign Ministry spokesman, Mariano Lapeyre, declined to comment on the continuing talks.

Evidence has surfaced that the Foreign Ministry, the Defense Ministry and the navy were aware that the Libertad, built in Argentina in 1953 to train cadets and to serve as an emblem of Argentine diplomacy on distant shores, could be at risk of seizure in countries with claims pending against Argentina.

As the final details of the Libertad’s voyage were approved in May, a letter written by the foreign affairs secretary and circulated among top officials warned that the ship “could be embargoed by authorities of European member states where there are legal processes against the republic under way, as in the case of Germany, Belgium, Italy and France.”

The Libertad set sail in June. Tema was its 11th port of call in a six-month trip to countries on the coasts of the Atlantic Ocean.

Argentina is accruing daily $50,000 berth fees while the Libertad is docked at the Tema port.



“High flying operation”

By Adrián Murano and Andrea Recúpero, Veintitres, October 18, 2012


The detention of the Frigate Libertad in Ghana took the lid off a complex plot that involves magnates, lawyers, the media, military chiefs and local politicians. The plan to wear down the government and the interests in play.

Politics and business on a grand scale are fertile territory for a conspiracy. Of course not all conspiracies are the same. They are subtle and brutal, ordinary or sophisticated, domestic or global. And they are distinguished, also, by their origin: they can spring from a determined engine or be concocted from a sum of the facts –- apparently -– isolated and coincidental. Those are the most effective ones. The best conspirators operate above circumstances.

That was what happened with the detention of the Frigate Libertad, the teaching vessel of the Argentine Navy that since two weeks ago has been detained in a port of Ghana by court ruling. An episode that, as in the best fiction of the genre, revealed a plot that brings together unscrupulous financiers with military chiefs, influential attorneys, ambitious politicians and media operators.

On October 1, when the frigate came into the port of Tema, few knew what was going to happen. But the information is in who did know. Who? In principle, the attorneys of the vulture funds that were waiting for the ship with a request for attachment that was rapidly processed -– successfully -– by the local judiciary. But the list doesn’t end with the rapacious bondholders and their African lawyers. With the passing of the hours, the suspects plowed across the Atlantic and poised over the Edificio Libertad.

On Sunday the 14th, journalist Horacio Verbitsky revealed that it was the Navy that asked to include Ghana on the frigate’s itinerary. The request had the signature of Commodore Alfredo Blanco, ex-director of Naval Organization and Doctrine. Based on non-specific “operative reasons”, the official asked to replace Nigeria -– included among the 16 destinations on the original schedule -– with the Ghanaian port.

Three days later, the Defense Ministry raised the proposal with the Foreign Ministry, which had to evaluate the viability of the destination. That mechanism of inter-ministerial control, which in the past was routine, again became crucial five years ago precisely because of the stalking of the vulture funds.

On May 23, the secretary of Foreign Relations from the Foreign Ministry, Eduardo Zuaín, warned that, due to the open judicial alerts against Argentina “in different foreign jurisdictions, cannot guarantee that its teaching trip could not be subject to possible complaints, preliminary measures or execution during its stay in foreign ports.”

As the itinerary included Spain and Portugal, the official recalled the existence of open complaints in courts of Germany, Belgium, Italy and France which could turn into attachments according to European Union rules on jurisdiction, recognition and execution of judicial resolutions in civil and mercantile courts.

“Regarding the rest of the countries on the itinerary,” Zuain said, “there is no knowledge that judicial complaints exist against Argentina that could allow for solicitation of preliminary measures or executions against the Frigate Libertad.

Regardless of this, it should be borne in mind the intense activity of the hold outs that are attempting legal actions and attachments against assets of the Argentine Republic in various countries on the basis of bonds in which our country has renounced immunities of jurisdiction and execution. Added to that is the sumbolic value of the Frigate Libertad, which would ensure ample media repercussions around any alleged measure,” the official predicted. He was right.

The display of the opposition media was by the book. Clarin and its lesser partners, like La Nacion, accused the government of unpredictability, speculated about the alleged internal wars between ministries and even decided that the oft-accused Guillermo Moreno ordered the docking in Tema. On this, of course, they presented no evidence, different from what happened with Commodore Blanco and his duly completed letter. However, the flagrant guilty part of the Navy in the operation was neatly disguised in the opposition newspapers even after the government decided to relieve the official and his superior, the secretary of the force, Luis María González Day. In that case, the explanation they offered to their suffering readers was that the government used the Navy as a “scapegoat”.

Launched in an all-or-nothing war against the government, the media of the Clarin Group are natural allies of anyone who wants to harm the K leadership. Nothing suggests that the Ghanaian conspiracy was hatched in the offices on Calle Piedras, which doesn’t detract from the contribution that the multimedias are making for the protagonists of this international intrigue. One of them consists of running from the scene to the vulture funds, voracious financiers that are arguing a long – and onerous –- campaign against the country.

The funds that are acting against Argentina are around 47. They are speculative consortiums that bought debt bonds from countries in trouble when they are below their nominal value. They did that with bonds issued by Argentina in the 1990s, which then were declared in default. The swaps of 2005 and 2010 obtained an acceptance of 92 percent and the vulture funds fell outside with the remaining 8 percent. According to the Argentine ambassador in Washington, Jorge Arguello, “in the desire to impose through force the payment of their bonds they refused the swap, despite the fact they would have made money on the operation. For that, now, they are bringing forward a campaign before the U.S. administration to defame the country.” The diplomat emphasized that they have spent US$3 million in that defamation campaign. For example, organizing a seminar in Washington to debate if Argentina should remain in the G-20 or coordinating meetings about the status of freedom of the press in the country. One detail: to feed that debate they served up a paper written by Jorge Rendo, director and lobbyist for Clarin Group.

Among the most famous is NML Capital, controlled by [KIKE] Paul Singer, founder of American Task Force Argentina, an entity that in recent months lead an open attack in the United States against Arguello himself. Also well- known is EM Ltd., whose owner is Kenneth Dart, a magnate producer of plastic cups. These groups were the ones that in 2010 tried to capture Central Bank reserves. A key moment, with direct consequences on the Argentine economic area, which culminated in the exit of Martin Redrado from the Central Bank.

At that time, the funds were seeking to attach the reserves from the United States, but the complaints didn’t succeed due to the BCRA’s autarky. Until a crack opened: the creation of the Bicentennial Fund, set up by President Cristina Fernandez, which allowed the payment of debt maturities with reserves from the Central Bank, set off a crisis with the ex-president of that financial entity which favored the vultures.

Redrado, with the argument that the measure hit against the Bank’s autonomy, refused to transfer the reserves that the Executive asked for. In that framework, the funds took advantage of the wedge that Redrado introduced to intervene in the market seeking a drop in the price of bonds and tried to reinforce their position before the imminent debt swap. Redrado’s rebellion, first to surrender the reserves and then to resign his post, was taken advantage of by the scavengers that moved to sell and they got the most significant bonds to lose up to 10% of their value. In the midst of the internal row, the judge from New York, Thomas Griesa, put an attachment on accounts of the Central Bank in the United States based on the theory of “alter ego”. At high economic and political cost, the government managed to deactivate that operation.

Two years after that crisis, NML returned to the news through the attachment request on the Frigate Libertad. But not only for this: on July 18, while the ship was sailing to Tema, a local intermediary sent a “settlement” proposal to the national government. The letter carries the signature of the vice president of the fund, [KIKE] Jay Newman, and was delivered to the secretary general of the presidency, Oscar Parrilli. Who carried the mail was Mariano Mera Figueroa. An attorney at a modest law firm, son of an ex-minister of Carlos Menem, cousin of the governor of Salta, Juan Manuel Urtubey, ex-candidate for mayor of Buenos Aires under Menemism and ex-candidate for president of River Plate, his biggest political success was to lead the Juventud Antoniana de Salta football club, a job he had to leave in the midst of a scandal over management of funds. The vulture fund’s proposal that Mera sent the government consisted of accepting the haircut of 40% established by law, but with a detail: adding 2 billion dollars to the operation that the fund would contribute to YPF as a “good will” gesture. As that first letter got no response, the fund sent another on August 31, where it ratified the young lawyer as its intermediary.

How did this domestic second-line politician get wrapped in an intricate international web? The Mera version of the story begins at Ben Gurion University in Israel. There, in the midst of a trip to the Holy Land, knew Singer’s son, who worked for the family fund coordinating deals in a Kibbutz. Mera swears that he didn’t know that the young Singer was the son of the head of the fund, who just knew of the family relationship three months ago, when he was called in by the father of his friend in New York. In the Big Apple, Papa Singer proposed he mediate a solution with the government. “He regrets not participating in the swap and has good will to settle,” he said to Veintitrés.

Why now?

MERA: "He acknowledges that he didn’t believe in (Nestor) Kirchner and thought that the country wasn’t viable. Now he sees that that ones in crisis are the central countries, fundamentally the Europeans, and has the desire to solve this situation with the country."

It calls attention that the proposal was simultaneous to the attachment of the frigate.

MERA: "I already said that Singer has nothing to do with that. There are issues there that exceed the economic proposal that the fund makes. They’re issues of international policy. Look, Ghana is part of the Commonwealth, so it wouldn’t be strange that behind the issue of the frigate is hidden a retaliation from teh British government over Argentina’s position on the Malvinas.

And how to do explain the Navy changing the itinerary to include Ghana?

MERA: "The official that did that has to be tried for treason to the country, that is my opinion."

Another curiosity: Mera’s thesis, where he blames Great Britain for the struggle over the frigate, agrees with information revealed by Verbitsky, the reporter that discovered the affair. On Tuesday the 9th, the Ghanaian captain in charge of Tema let the frigate’s captain know that they would get the evil eye if the ship decided to attempt an escape. By that date, the destroyer HMS Edinburgh was entering the port of Tema, having sailed five days from Casablanca to hold anti-piracy and anti-drug trafficking interdiction tasks on African coasts. Its final destination was the Malvinas, where it will replace HSM Dauntless. But before it would refuel in the port of Ghana, where it was scheduled to arrive on Thursday the 11th. It’s easy to imagine what would happen that if the Argentine frigate in flight had been captured by a ship built in a British shipyard.

But there is no record that the multiple tentacles of Singer operate over the Royal Navy, but that doesn’t diminish his influence. The financier is one of the main advisers to U.S. Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney. According to what many U.S. media outlets have reported, Singer would guarantee millions to the Romney campaign in exchange for future favors if he gets to the White House. Singer’s ties with Republicans are not new. A beneficiary of his contributions is the senator of Cuban origin, Marco Rubio, elected from Florida, who last year promoted the blocking of loans from the IADB and World Bank for Argentina. That maneuver was in “retaliation” because Argentina “is not honoring American creditors,” read as bondholders or former shareholders of concessionary companies from the privatizations that went to the ICSID demanding indemnities.

Singer also created the group American Task Force Argentina to lobby against the country. He put [KIKE] Robert Shapiro in front of ATFA, and gave him the job of going to the hotel where the President stayed during her last visit to New York and even to the doors of Harvard University with the vulture fund’s complaints. The executive director of ATFA, [KIKE] Robert Raben, and co-chair of the lobby group, [KIKE] Nancy Soderberg, former ambassador at the UN and adviser to ex-Senator Edward Kennedy, are the voices that are heard most frequently against the country in defense of the rapacious funds. In 2011, before the American Congress took up the veto of new credits for Argentina, Soderberg said that the vote was “another message to the Argentine government that the continued evasion of its responsibilities to the international community will not be tolerated.” She’s the same woman who on October 2, in an article published in the Harvard Crimson, called for CFK to resign.

It was precisely at Harvard where “the law student Tomás Pérez Alati” put himself in front of the protest organized against the President. He even said – in an accusatory tone and pointed at the so-called currency trap – that “he keeps his credit card because they won’t let him buy dollars.” The student with a scholarship is the son of José Pérez Alati, partner of José Alfredo Martínez de Hoz Jr. and Mariano Grondona (jr.) in the law firm that represented Argentine companies that are suing Argentina in the ICSID. The connections reach into various local law firms that represented bondholders. Among them is Liendo & Asociados, who intervened in the negotiations for the creation of Mercobank at the end of the 1990s, presided over by cavallista Horacio Tomás Liendo (Jr). His father, General Horacio Tomás Liendo, was Interior Minister during the dictatorship and opened the doors of public administration to ex-minister of Economy, Domingo Cavallo.

The other consultant with broad lobbying power is the [KIKE] law firm Zang, Bergel & Viñes, made up of Saúl Zang, Salvador Bergel, Ernesto Viñes and Juan Quintana. As foreign advisers or from boards of different companies, these attorneys put at their clients’ disposal a sophisticated legal engineering with the power to lobby in order to guarantee success in the resolution of conflicts. The firm Zang, Bergel & Viñes intervened in the past in the privatizations of the Savings and Insurance Bank, of Water of Cordoba, and YPF. Shortly thereafter, the head of the firm, Ernesto Viñes, was named director of YPF when Class C shares expired that belonged to ex-workers of the state oil company, without making any payment to them.

On July 21, 2007, Griesa set an attachment in New York on US$86 million from the government belonging to a fiduciary fund made up of shares the state holds in Banco Hipotecario. A fiduciary dating back to Menemism. Then, sources connected to the case, cited by the newspaper La Nacion that day, reported that “the legal adviser to that group (it associated with the big vulture fund) is attorney Martín Paolantonio, former partner of the [KIKE] firm Zang, Bergel & Viñes and specialist in the country’s negotiable obligations.”

Attorneys, politicians, magnates, media, vultures. The conspiracies, even the spontaneous ones, are like that. Sooner or later they are the threads.



Argentina sought assistance from Kofi Annan, former Secretary-General of the United Nations, a citizen of Ghana, and husband of Raoul Wallenberg's grand-daughter. It's not clear whether he was paid for his intervention or not, but anyway he was impotent.

European Union Exit? Concerns Grow for Britain

By Stephen Castle, [KIKE] New York Times, October 27, 2012

LONDON — Is Britain moving inexorably toward the European Union’s exit door?

When the European Union unexpectedly won the Nobel Peace Prize this month, the leaders of Germany, France and Italy spoke of their pride. But the British prime minister, [KIKE] David ["my valies are Jewish values"] Cameron, maintained an awkward silence.

Before that, the British government [insincerely] said it wanted to exercise an opt out of an estimated 133 areas of European Union police and judicial cooperation to which it had once agreed.

And Mr. Cameron supported a plan for a new budget for countries that use the euro (which Britain does not), something that would place his nation firmly in Europe’s outer tier. The prime minister has been hinting that he could hold a referendum on Britain’s relations with the union, and one newspaper reported recently that a senior cabinet minister wants Britain to threaten openly to leave the 27-nation bloc. There was no official denial of the report.

All of which has fueled concerns that Britain is laying plans for what political and financial pundits have dubbed “Brixit,” a variant on “Grexit” — the shorthand for Greece’s much predicted if currently forestalled departure from the euro zone.

Mr. Cameron insists that he is trying to keep Britain in the European Union. He argues gamely that popular consent to membership can be regained only by refocusing the relationship on Europe’s single economic and free trade market — which accounts for half of Britain’s foreign trade and investment, according to the government — and loosening other ties.

Britain has always been ambivalent about the European project. Unlike the founding six nations, all of them defeated or occupied in World War II, Britain was a victor. In national mythology, the war was neither a moment of disgrace nor a humiliation. On the contrary, it was widely considered the country’s finest hour, when it stood alone against fascism.

So the idea of reconciliation through integration never had the appeal in Britain that it did on the Continent. Unlike many other member countries, Britain always paid more into the union in contributions than it received in subsidies.

Now, with the euro zone almost three years in crisis, British public opinion has hardened. The overwhelming majority of Conservative lawmakers are euro skeptics, and many privately favor withdrawal.

For some this is a question of conviction, while others feel a competitive threat from the United Kingdom Independence Party, which wants to take Britain out of the union altogether. Adept at winning over Conservative voters, the party threatens to deprive many Tories of their seats in Parliament in future elections.

So government strategy toward the union — always hampered by what Lord Christopher Patten, a former Conservative minister and ex-European commissioner, has called “the psychodrama of Britain’s relations with Europe” — has turned on its head.

When he was prime minister, Tony Blair sought to exploit strains between France and Germany, the twin engines of European integration. Mr. Blair, whose Labour Party was less Europe-averse than Mr. Cameron’s Conservatives, courted allies among smaller nations and tried to compensate for Britain’s self-exclusion from the euro by leading in areas like defense and police cooperation, a policy Mr. Cameron has reversed.

Previous British governments argued that if they did not like something, they had a chance of changing or stopping it only if they sat at all tables with their European partners.

Mr. Cameron seeks a new arrangement that abandons any pretense of being at the heart of the European Union. He does not, for instance, want to stop the euro zone integrating without Britain. Indeed, he recognizes that this is necessary to save the euro.

But can a more remote relationship work?

According to a recent study for the European Council on Foreign Relations by Peter Kellner, president of YouGov, a polling organization, there is a parallel with 1975, when Britain held its referendum on membership in Europe.

“Then, as now, the prime minister, then Labour’s Harold Wilson, had a problem managing party divisions,” Mr. Kellner wrote. “Then, as now, most voters wanted to leave the Common Market (as it then was). Then, as now, polling (specifically, a Gallup Poll in November 1974) suggested that if the prime minister renegotiated the terms of Britain’s membership and recommended acceptance of the new terms, opinion would swing in favor of British membership.”

Mr. Kellner went on to note that Mr. Wilson did talk to his European partners, claimed victory and voters subsequently voted 2 to 1 to stay in Europe.

In July this year, a YouGov poll suggested that, if Mr. Cameron renegotiated the relationship to his satisfaction and recommended a “yes,” 42 percent of voters would vote to stay in and 34 percent to leave.

The strategy may have domestic political logic but there are simultaneous risks: of reducing Britain’s influence on the world stage and making a “Brixit” a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Britain carries weight with some other member states who rely on British influence to bolster the bloc’s free-market wing and counterbalance France’s more statist approach.

But to anchor Britain in Europe, Mr. Cameron needs to emerge from a whole series of negotiations successfully — or at least persuade his own skeptical party that he has done so.

Most urgently, he faces tough discussions on the European Union’s next seven-year spending cycle. Many officials and other observers expect Mr. Cameron to veto a budget deal at a November summit.

That will satisfy euro skeptics only if Mr. Cameron can bring home an improved offer later. Yet, playing to his domestic gallery with an aggressive veto may alienate the very European allies Mr. Cameron would need in later talks in any effort to redefine ties.

Meanwhile, the emergence of an ever more clear-cut two-tier Europe, with much greater integration among the 17 euro zone nations on issues like banking and financial services, is putting a strain on Europe’s unified economic space, and could ultimately threaten London’s status as Europe’s financial capital.

“Deeper integration in the core would come with disintegration in the E.U.’s periphery and shrink the single market,” writes Sebastian Dullien in a separate paper, also for the European Council on Foreign Relations. In other words, it could undermine the one part of the European bargain that Britons actually seem to like.

A version of this article appeared in print on October 28, 2012, on page A4 of the New York edition with the headline: European Union Exit? Concerns Grow for Britain.

"THE MIGRANTS BUILDING BRITAIN"

Cheap, and Far from Free: The Migrants Building Britain

Job restrictions have left Romanian and Bulgarian construction workers underpaid and vulnerable to exploitation, a BIRN investigation reveals.

Sorana Stanescu, Balkan Insight, Bucharest and London

Sorana Stanescu is a Bucharest-based journalist. This article was edited by Neil Arun. It was produced as part of the Balkan Fellowship for Journalistic Excellence, an initiative of the Robert Bosch Stiftung and ERSTE Foundation, in cooperation with the Balkan Investigative Reporting Network.

The men gather in the shadow of the Wickes hardware store, looking out for the odd jobs that keep them in the UK and for the police that periodically moves them along.

As day labourers on the margins of Britain’s sprawling construction sector, they provide a ready supply of cheap manpower, useful yet often unwelcome.

Their presence provokes frequent complaints from the residents of Seven Sisters, a north London neighbourhood where the cafés offer a greasy “builder’s breakfast” for less than five pounds.

With no offices or agencies supporting them, the day labourers crowd the pavement and advertise their trade through their attire – grubby tracksuits spattered with paint and plaster.

When potential clients pull up, they haggle over rates and hitch rides. When the police show up, they run.

Across the road on a sunny July morning, Jarek collects his groceries and stops for a chat with some friends.

“Illegal people,” is how he describes the 30 or so men waiting outside Wickes. Like them, Jarek is an immigrant. Unlike them, he comes from Poland and does not panic when he sees the police.

He too is a builder, but he does not do business on the pavement outside Wickes. Instead, he travels on a moped fitted with a toolbox, dispensing glossy flyers advertising “cheap and reliable contractor services” in ungrammatical English.

Jarek is one of around a million workers who moved to the UK as a result of the EU’s expansion into Eastern Europe in 2004. The scale of the migration, most of it from Poland, prompted a backlash against the British politicians who had failed to anticipate it.

The day labourers are mostly Romanians and Bulgarians, and relative newcomers to the UK. They arrived after 2007, when Romania and Bulgaria – the so-called A2 countries – joined the EU.

Despite Jarek’s suspicions, the men’s presence in Britain, or indeed outside Wickes, is not in itself illegal.

All that separates him from the newcomers is a web of restrictions, designed to deny A2 migrants the many advantages that helped Jarek and his compatriots establish themselves in the UK.

Free to stay but not free to work, the Romanians and Bulgarians fulfil a narrow function – meeting Britain’s need for underpaid and unprotected labour.

Nervous and suspicious

The construction sector accounts for more than 10 per cent of Britain’s GDP. It is the centrepiece of the government’s plan to revive the struggling economy, and the recipient of regular subsidies and stimuli.

Critics say the government’s restrictions on A2 workers have benefitted the construction sector by boosting the ranks of poorly paid and loosely regulated labourers. They accuse Britain of trying to build its way out of a double-dip recession by undercutting pay and conditions for other, relatively well-established, workers.

A Balkan Investigative Reporting Network (BIRN) investigation shows that A2 workers are generally prepared to work for lower wages and in worse conditions than others in the construction industry. Many interviewees spoke on condition of anonymity because they did not wish to attract the attention of the authorities.

Unions and safety officials agree that the A2 workers’ immigration status has driven them into the highly casual end of the building trade, where procedures are more likely to be ignored and injuries and grievances are less likely to be reported.

The UK government justifies its restrictions, arguing that they have protected the British workforce by preventing another surge of immigration of the scale that brought Jarek to the country.

Statistics from the Department of Work and Pensions show that around 210,000 Romanians and Bulgarians have received a National Insurance (NI) number since their countries joined the EU five years ago. This figure offers a very rough indication of how many migrants from these countries may be working in Britain, without taking into account those working illegally and those who have since returned home.

By comparison, some 640,000 Poles have received NI numbers over the last five years, from the total of more than a million over the last decade.

Large construction guilds, meanwhile, insist that their members are bound by law to ensure working conditions are safe and fair. When the rules are broken, they say, the migrants are often complicit.

Some migrants interviewed by BIRN seemed to confirm this, saying they worked in the grey economy to avoid taxes. But as many are underpaid, the incentive for doing so is also greater.

If caught working illegally, the migrants face a fine of up to £1,000 pounds (about €1,300) and a possible prison term.

However, the day labourers in front of Wickes are in little danger of being busted, as they can always claim that they intend to declare any earnings.

Their nervousness around the police stems less from a genuine fear of prosecution than from a general suspicion of the state.

Facing severe restrictions in the job market, they have been funnelled towards a zone where there is no clear distinction between the lawful and unlawful, or between the exploitative and the cost-effective.

“The police have asked me for ID… Sometimes they say you can stay, sometimes they make you leave,’’ says a middle-aged day labourer from Bulgaria who gave his name as Neven. “I stay,’’ he adds. “What are the police going to do to me?’’

Numbers game

Upon arrival in the UK, all foreigners in search of work are expected to apply for an NI number.

The number is a prerequisite for anyone seeking legitimate long-term employment. It is effectively the code upon which the state builds each individual’s record of taxes, pensions and benefits.

When Jarek came to Britain in 2004, Poles like him had little difficulty acquiring an NI number. But by the time Neven migrated five years later, Romanians and Bulgarians were finding it harder to register.

A2 nationals are automatically allocated NI numbers only if they have travelled to Britain on a type of work permit that is issued with direct offers of employment.

However, these migrants are in a minority. Most Romanians and Bulgarians travel to the UK without work permits or any firm promise of employment.

Eager to start earning, they gravitate towards the construction and hospitality sectors, where they can eventually skirt the need for a work permit by registering as self-employed.

Migrants who fail to prove they are self-employed, and therefore fail to get an NI number, often end up on the margins of these sectors, getting paid cash-in-hand for casual jobs that require minimal paperwork.

Bulgarian and Romanian embassy officials in London told BIRN that their citizens were finding it harder to get an NI number, in some cases logging five unsuccessful attempts. Many of the day labourers outside the Wickes at Seven Sisters fit this category.

“No money, no job in Bulgaria,” said a 45-year-old migrant who did not give his name. He said he had twice applied for an NI number, and had been refused both times. He had not found work for two months and was living off his savings.

‘Smaller sites, bigger risks’

Undocumented workers are more likely to be seriously injured on the job, according to trade unions and safety experts.

A young Romanian man, whose name has been withheld on the advice of his lawyer, told BIRN he had been electrocuted while operating a jackhammer at a site in London. “I don’t remember much,” he said. “There was smoke. My arm was burned.”

The man had been working in Britain without an NI number and had learned about the job from a friend. He says he was not asked to provide any documents or sign any contracts before starting work, and was paid cash-in-hand. Although he received some basic safety instructions, he says he had trouble following them because of his poor English.

Construction unions estimate that some 80 per cent of workplace accidents go unreported. The Health and Safety Executive (HSE), the UK watchdog that monitors safety in the workplace, does not keep any data recording the nationality of injured workers.

However, it acknowledges that migrant workers are more exposed to accidents and less likely to report them, even though they cannot be deported or penalised for doing so.

Richard Boland, the HSE’s head of operations for construction in southern England, says “the vulnerability that comes with having restrictions on when and where you can work” can drive builders to sites where the safety rules are not enforced.

HSE’s inspectors are now shifting their focus away from the large firms towards smaller sites because the latter, he says, are more likely to ignore standards and to employ relatively inexperienced migrant workers.

‘Silent accidents’

Romanian and Bulgarian workers who manage to acquire an NI number still face curbs that did not trouble an earlier generation of immigrants from the EU.

Most jobs in construction are arranged through specialist employment agencies, which are typically small companies with a record for hiring from within a particular immigrant community.

These agencies act as subcontractors for bigger firms, delivering casual labour to large sites at short notice and handling much of the associated paperwork.

According to lawyers and labour experts, the A2 workers hired by such agencies are less likely to complain of dangerous conditions and low wages. Many fear being blacklisted in an economy where their options for employment are already circumscribed.

Remus Robu, a paralegal with UK law firm Levenes, often handles claims arising from accidents involving A2 workers. “Unfortunately, there are people who do lose their job when they file for compensation,” he said.

The Romanian owner of a small building company, speaking on condition of anonymity, confirmed the existence of an informal blacklist for workers who were regarded as troublesome. But, he said, this was no different to the system of references shared by employers in other industries.

“Would you hire back somebody who had filed a claim against you?’’ he said.

The owner also told BIRN that he had persuaded a worker against reporting an accident that had led to a broken leg. He said he had paid the injured man a full wage throughout his time in recovery, and guaranteed him further employment when he was fit again.

“He agreed not to pursue a claim against me because I have a good relationship with my workers,” the owner said.

According to the HSE, any accident that leads to a broken leg has to be reported under UK law. If an employer is found to be at fault, lawyers say a worker can expect to receive between £6,000 and £36,000, depending on the severity of the injury.

Small construction firms are usually keen to avoid having claims brought against them, as these can hamper their ability to secure fresh contracts.

‘Informal economy’

As well as discouraging complaints over conditions, employment agencies often pay A2 migrants a lower wage than other workers.

Many agencies deduct a form of commission from workers’ pay packets. In some cases, a payroll company – often linked to the agency – will charge an additional “admin” fee for processing salaries.

The A2 migrants have no safeguards against these cuts to their earnings. As self-employed workers, they are not eligible for the UK’s minimum wage, currently set at just over six pounds an hour.

Moreover, although technically expected to pay their own taxes, self-employed labourers are automatically taxed at source at a rate of 20 per cent, under a government scheme that applies to the construction sector alone.

The construction workers’ union, UCATT, has called for the scheme to be scrapped, saying it facilitates a form of bogus self-employment. Britain’s opposition Labour party also recently said it would review the scheme.

However, an official from the UK’s largest construction trade association said the workers in this category deserved no more sympathy than their employers for undermining their “legitimate competitors”.

“Both parties gain from effectively breaking the law and, as such, those A2s who collude in false self-employment cannot be portrayed as innocent victims,” says Peter O’ Connell, a policy manager with the Federation of Master Builders.

Stephen Ratcliffe, director of the UK Contractors Groups, a guild representing the country’s top construction firms, said criminal proceedings should be used against the “informal economy” where companies flout tax, employment and safety laws.

Both O’Connell and Ratcliffe stressed that the members of their organisations abide fully by the law.

The UK’s main trade body for employment agencies, the Recruitment and Employment Confederation, declined to comment despite several requests from BIRN.

Given the ways in which working through employment agencies can eat into their earnings, many A2 workers decide to opt out of the system.

The day labourers outside the Wickes superstore in Seven Sisters include some who have an NI number but choose not to use it.

A Romanian man, who refused to give his name, says he has been in the UK for six years and regularly pays his taxes and contributions to the state.

But he supplements his official income by working cash-in-hand. “People hire me to paint their house. If they ask for an invoice, I can issue one. Otherwise, I don’t.”

“I’m done working with the agencies,” he adds. “They take too much of your money.”

Most of the men outside Wickes said they expected to earn around £50 (€60) a day. By comparison, a self-employed Romanian, recruited legally through an employment agency for marshalling traffic at a building site, can expect to earn £80 (€100) per day. In other words, he will be paid only £30 (€40) more than the day labourers, out of which he must fund further tax and NI contributions.

Recruitment agencies say they pay the same wage, regardless of nationality. However, unions say that British and Polish workers can expect to be paid £9-10 per hour for jobs that will be offered to A2 workers for £5-6 per hour.

As they do not face any working restrictions, Polish and British workers are in a better position to negotiate their rates or simply take better jobs in other sectors. Romanians and Bulgarians are more likely to go with what they are offered, as they have fewer options on the job market.

‘Good for business’

According to its critics, the current policy on A2 workers has created a system that deprives the state of tax revenues, undercuts British labour and leaves foreigners open to exploitation.

Labour MP Jim Sheridan has argued for tighter regulation of the employment agencies in the construction sector, along the lines of the licensing of agricultural gangmasters.

Others call for reducing self-employment in the sector by making construction firms hire more workers directly. However, this would also shift the burden for NI contributions – nearly 14 per cent of the wage bill – on to the employers.

UCATT convenor Dave Allen admits this is unlikely to happen, as it would leave the big firms with smaller budgets. “The government knows that if everybody was directly employed, the economy might suffer,” he says.

Bridget Anderson, deputy director and senior research fellow at Oxford University’s migration think-tank COMPAS, says the government should, at the very least, enforce the minimum wage regulations on all workers, British and foreign, self-employed or not.

She says the rhetoric about protecting British jobs was misleading: the curbs had undermined established labour while benefitting businesses by giving them a more pliant workforce.

“The more you focus on immigration control, the more you introduce transitional arrangements – the more you create a labour force that is actually more desirable for employers,” she said.

EU members cannot prevent the citizens of other member states from travelling to their countries for work. They can only impose “transitional controls” of the kind currently in place in the UK against Romanians and Bulgarians.

The UK is just one of several EU states that have imposed restrictions on A2 workers. Similar restrictions exist in Austria, Germany, Belgium, France and the Netherlands.

By law, the curbs must be lifted by January 2014. However, a statement issued by the UK Border Agency last year confirmed it would apply similar “transitional restrictions” on all new EU member states to ensure that “migration benefits the UK and does not adversely impact our labour market’’.

The UK’s Border Agency, the immigration minister, and the Department for Work and Pensions all declined to be interviewed for this article.

NATIONAL INSURANCE NUMBERS

A National Insurance (NI) number keeps a record of each individual’s tax and insurance contributions. British citizens automatically receive an NI number when they turn 16. Polish migrants often had to provide little more than an original ID and proof of a UK address to qualify for one.

Romanians and Bulgarians who need to register as self-employed to get the number must provide contracts, invoices, job offers and references from clients. They have a three-month grace period upon arrival in which to amass this proof.

Many complain that this creates a Catch-22 situation. They cannot get the proof for an NI number until they are established as self-employed – but they cannot establish themselves as self-employed without the number.

A2 WORKERS’ STORIES: WITHOUT NI NUMBER

“I tell my clients from the beginning I don’t take cheques and I don’t give invoices. Take it or leave it. I can earn up to £3,000 a month.” (“Ion”, Romania)

“I share a room with my mother for £100 a week. I come to look for work at Wickes because I have to pay the rent. If I don’t pay every week, they will simply kick me out.” (Ergean, Romania)

“I don’t have any documents and I’ve never worked with a company. Instead of finding work through an agency that will charge £40 per week, I’d rather wait outside Wickes and hope to get £80 on a good day.” (“Paul”, Romania)

“I don’t know why I came to the UK in the first place. I’ve been rejected for an NI number once and have just applied for the second time. If they say no, I’ll try one last time and then go back home.” (Mihaela, Romanian cleaner)

A2 WORKERS’ STORIES: WITH THE NI NUMBER

"One time an agency charged 30 per cent tax, instead of 20 per cent. A lady told me over the phone they would charge 30 per cent, plus the agency’s fee, plus the payroll company’s fee. That's how it goes: the two go hand-in-hand, each of them gets a share of my money.” (Florin, Romania, window fixer)

“I got my NI number the fourth time I applied and I had to pay a consultant £200 to help me sort out the invoices and contracts I needed to show as proof of self-employment.” (Costel, Romania)

“I’m very happy with how the HSE handled my case. They got to the site within ten minutes and all companies responsible for my accident were prosecuted.” (Marcel, Romania)

COMMENTS

Willow River: Beautifully researched and written. Anyone in the western Balkans who still thinks that EU accession will neccesarily provide either an economic boom or equal and respectful treatment should read this and the related articles carefully. Romania and Bulgaria have their own problems, but they have also been treated shamefully by EU "partners" on issues suich as labor migration (aka "free movement of people," right?) and Schengen. The western Balkans should consider focusing on building competent state structures which respect the rights of their own citizens and their neighbors before jumping into an ill-defined confederation where they may still be treated as poor, 'unwashed' relations.

Tito Perdue: Anyone whose ancestors were not present in geographical Britain at the time of Alfred must be made to leave.

Guest: Polish and A8 immigration generally wasn't "under-estimated", it was systematically lied about and denied for political ends, particularly by Jack Straw. The Germans and Dutch got it right, produced figures which have borne subsequent scrutiny and imposed significant restrictions from the 'off'. The information was fully available at the time and a number of people published it in the UK, only to be rubbished by the Government. Draw your own conclusions. Of course, this doesn't even refer to the huge numbers working for £30 or £40 a day and topping this up by claiming benefits for dependents in Poland or wherever. These are generally employed by agencies based outside UK.

Kit Ingoldby: If things are so bad in Britain, then please go somewhere else.

Biljana Volcevska: yes we will go somewhere else, but first all british companies all around the world exploiting cheap labor should go back home. First they are creating poverty in so many countries and than wondering why migrants come and knock on their door. The global economy of all those developed counries is responsible for creating poverty in others. Nobody leaves home just like that.

lostforwords: Bingo. "First they are creating poverty in so many countries", I would redefine this as "extract value and resources from nations around the world and haul the boot back to their treasuries". The basic mercantilist practices of anglo-saxon peoples and their derivatives across the pond have not really changed much since the 16th century (see Wallerstein, the World-System series)

PERES PRAISES MILITARY ALLIANCE

US military chief meets with Peres, lauds military partnershipPresident tells Martin Dempsey that US-Israel cooperation lends ‘important strength to deter danger and to face our enemies’

Ilan ben Zion, Associated Press, October 29, 2012

Visiting US military chief Martin Dempsey on Monday met President Shimon Peres, who thanked him for his personal involvement in ensuring Israeli security.

Peres thanked Dempsey “for coming [to Kikestan-in-Palestine], and for your personal commitment to Israel’s security,” and for the ”profound cooperation between the American armed forces and our own.”

“The cooperation is at the highest level and is at its best. The absolute friendship is an important strength to deter danger and to face our enemies,” Peres said at the meeting in the President’s Residence in Jerusalem, alluding to the Austere Challenge 12 drill, involving thousands of troops from Israel and the US, which has been taking place over the past week.

Regarding the Arab Spring and the changing face of the Middle East, Peres remarked that “there are great dangers but some promises too, and we have to distinguish between them. We must never forget there are chances, never ignore the dangers.”

Dempsey thanked Peres, and said the American commitment to maintaining strong military cooperation “provides the foundation for the other instrument of power to be applied. This exercise we’re conducting is the largest one ever. It’s a real opportunity for our soldiers to work with Israeli soldiers, our airmen to work with Israeli pilots and our sailors to work with Israeli sailors.

“This exercise covers all of those domains to ensure that we have a layered cooperative, collaborative, common defense against the threats of missiles and rockets,” he said.

Dempsey added that he was honored to be in Israel again, and that “we want to reinforce the commitment you mentioned [to Israel's security] because we must go forward together.”

Dempsey met Sunday with Defense Minister Ehud Barak at the beginning of his visit, and Barak remarked after the meeting that “the security relationship between the US and Israel is deeper and stronger than it has been in recent years.”

Dempsey’s visit to Israel was his second in 2012, and talks were expected to focus chiefly on Israeli and American security cooperation vis-à-vis Iran’s nuclear program.

Dempsey has been outspoken in his opposition to a unilateral Israeli strike on Iran. In August, he was quoted by The Guardian as saying that an Israeli attack would not succeed in stopping Tehran’s drive toward nuclear capability. Then, he reportedly avowed that he did not wish to be “complicit” in an Israeli strike.

Dempsey came to Israel this week to oversee elements of Austere Challenge 12, an air-defense drill that includes more than 3,500 Americans and 1,000 Israeli troops. The forces are training their ability to work together against a range of threats facing IsraeL

SAVILE 'n' KIKE 'n' KIKE 'n' KIKE

"We colluded with [Sir] Jimmy Savile as a child abuser," says Kikess Esther Rantzen. The former TV star Jimmy Savile has been accused of supplying children to members of the elite for sexual abuse. Rantzen has told how some in broadcasting ‘blocked our ears’ to claims about Jimmy Savile made during his career.

The Kikess Rantzen is a Trustee of the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children and is the founder and President of ChildLine.

Kike-Lord Mandelson is one of the NSPCC's most prominent sponsors.

The NSPCC supported The Right Honourable Kike-Lady Hodge (née Oppenheimer), MBE, MP, as Children's Minister, even though she admitted that she had failed children in her care for 10 years while they had been abused and raped. When challenged by one of the abused children (now an adult) The Jewess Hodge verbally abused him, and questioned his sanity; later issuing an apology

Kikess Margaret Hodge MBE MP (née Oppenheimer; born 8 September 1944), formally styled The Rt Hon Lady Hodge MBE MP by virtue of her appointment to the Privy Council and her late husband's knighthood, has been the Member of Parliament for Barking since 1994.

She was the first Minister for Children in 2003 and was Minister of State for Culture and Tourism at the Department for Culture, Media and Sport. On 9 June 2010 she was elected Chair of the Public Accounts Committee.

Margaret Eve Oppenheimer was born in Egypt in 1944 to Hans and Lisbeth Oppenheimer, a refugee multi-millionaire German Jewish steel trader and his Austrian Jewish wife.

The family's company Stemcor is the world's largest privately owned steel-trading corporation, with an annual turnover of £6.28 billion in 2008.

After the defeat of National Socialist Germany the Oppenheimer Kikes settled in London. Margaret was 10. She was educated at Bromley High School and Oxford High School, before attending the London School of Economics, where she obtained a third class BSc Economics degree in 1966. She worked in market research from 1966 to 1973.

She married Andrew Watson in 1968; they had a son and daughter.

The Kikess Oppeneheimer was elected as a councillor for the London Borough of Islington in 1973. She was associated with a group of newly elected activists who were viewed with antagonism by established Labour Party councillors.

Oppenheimer rapidly became chairman of the Housing Committee. This was a critical post in an authority with one of the worst sets of housing statistics in London and in a period when London boroughs were expected to be housing providers and managers. At one point, Oppenheimer's deputy chairman was Kike Jack Straw, who later became a Blairite Cabinet member.

Oppenheimer divorced her husband in 1978 and in the same year married Henry Hodge, a fellow Labour Borough Councillor. In the same year she was named a Member of the British Empire.

With Hodge (later Sir Henry), she had two more two daughters. Sir Henry was Chairman of the National Council for Civil Liberties. He became a High Court judge.

Oppenheimer, by then called Hodge, was Islington Council Leader from 1982 until 1992. During her 10 years as leader of Islington Council she was nicknamed "Enver Hodge", after the Albanian despot, Enver Hoxha (pronounced "Hodge-a"). She had become the focus of antagonism from "old-guard" Labourites, who felt that their party had been taken over by rich wine and cheese socialists.

In 1985, Demetrious Panton complained about abuse that he had suffered while in the council's care in the 1970s and 1980s. He did not receive an official reply until 1989, in which the council denied responsibility.

In 1990, Liz Davies, a senior social worker employed by the borough and her manager, David Cofie, raised concerns about sexual abuse of children in Islington Council care. Correspondence between The Kikess Hodge and the director of social work indicates that she declined a request for extra resources to investigate.

In early 1992, Davies resigned from her post and requested that Scotland Yard investigate the allegations. The Evening Standard then began reporting on the allegations of abuse in Islington's children's homes, shortly after which the Kikess resigned. From 1992 to 1994 she was a senior consultant to Price Waterhouse. In 1995, the "White Report" into sexual abuse in Islington Care Homes reported that the council had failed to adequately investigate the allegations.

The Kikess Hodge has been Member for Barking since a by-election in 1994 caused by the death of Jo Richardson. As a new MP, she co-nominated the candidature of Tony Blair, a former neighbour in Islington, to be the new leader of the Labour Party, after the sudden death of John Smith.

The Kikess became a Junior Minister in 1998, and was appointed Minister for Universities in 2001, where she sponsored the controversial Higher Education Act 2004, and remained there until 2003 when she was named as Children's Minister.

In 2003, following Hodge's appointment as the first Minister for Children, Demetrious Panton went public with his allegation that he was abused in Islington Council care and had repeatedly raised this issue with no effect. He accused The Kikess Hodge of being ultimately responsible for the abuse that he suffered. Davies also went public with the issues that she had raised concerns about while working for the council. Following a media campaign conducted by several national newspapers calling for her to resign from her new post, she responded to Panton by letter, in which she referred to him as 'extremely disturbed'. Panton then passed the letter to the press which planned to publish it, only to be judicially restrained from doing so at the instruction of The Kikess Hodge. The letter was eventually published, on the grounds that the blocking of the letter was seen as disproportionate. The Kikess was forced to publicly apologise and offered to contribute to a charity of Panton's choosing.

She was appointed to the Privy Council in 2003.

Privacy International awarded her the 2004 Big Brother Award for "Worst Public Servant", for her backing of controversial initiatives including the Universal Child Database.

At a keynote speech to the Institute for Public Policy Research on 26 November 2004, Hodge strongly defended the idea of greater state regulation of individuals' choices, stating that "some may call it the nanny state but I call it a force for good".

In the same year Fathers 4 Justice campaigner Jonathan Stanesby handcuffed Hodge, stating he was arresting her for child abuse. Fathers 4 Justice targeted Hodge because she was the "bogeywoman of family law, who doesn't even believe in equal parenting". Stanesby and colleague Jason Hatch were later cleared of a charge false imprisonment after claiming that it was part of a reasonable political protest.

In 2005 The Kikess Hodge was appointed Minister of State at the Department for Work and Pensions, with primary responsibility for Work. In June of 2005, she was criticised for saying that the former workers of MG Rover would be able to obtain jobs at Tesco, a local supermarket. Later, she claimed that this was not what she meant, rather that she actually had empathy for those losing their jobs, and had simply pointed to a new Tesco supermarket as an example of new jobs being created.

In April of 2006, she commented in an interview with The Sunday Telegraph that eight out of ten white working class voters in her constituency might be tempted to vote for the British National Party (BNP; a pseudo-nationalist "front" group of the state-security apparatus) in the local elections of May 4th, 2006.

She said the Labour Party must promote "very, very strongly the benefits of the new, rich multi-racial society which is part of this part of London for me."

She was strongly criticised for giving the BNP publicity in the local election campaign. The BNP went on to gain 11 seats in the election out of a total of 51, making them the second largest party. Local Labour activists blamed Hodge, and it was reported that moves were under way to deselect her. The GMB wrote to Hodge in May of 2006, asking for her to resign.

In November 2009, Nick Griffin, leader of the BNP, announced that he intended to stand for election in Barking against The Kikess Hodge at the next General Election, in 2010. He came third, after the Conservatives, and the Kikess retained her seat, doubling her majority to over 16,000. The BNP lost all 12 of its seats on Barking and Dagenham Council. The BNP announced its intention to launch a court action to have the Barking election result overturned, under section 106 of the Representation of the People Act 1983, using the precedent set in the Oldham and Saddleworth constituency of Phil Woolas who was ejected from his seat for lying about his opponents during the election campaign. The BNP clsimed that that Hodge's claim that the BNP wants to expel all non-whites and drop them into the sea from aircraft make "Mr Woolas’s lies look tame, and are a clear and obvious breach of the same law which saw the Oldham and Saddleworth MP struck down."

In January 2010, Margaret Hodge announced that Royal Parks, which manages Richmond Park and Bushy Park in the Borough of Richmond on Thames, would be allowed to charge drivers £2 per visit. This announcement caused mass protests across the borough and was deplored by local politicians such as Vince Cable (former Econimic Advisor to the government of Kenya), Kike Zac Goldsmith and Kikess-Baroness Susan Kramer (former Vice-President of Citibank in Chicago).

In June of 2007, Hodge was appointed Minister of State at the Department for Culture, Media and Sport by the new Prime Minister, Gordon Brown. As Minister for Culture, Creative Industries and Tourism, she criticised the UK's foremost classical music festival, the Proms, for not being sufficiently inclusive, instead praising television shows such as Coronation Street, which is full of stories about queers, Negroes, trannies, Hindoos, etc.

In October of 2008, it was announced that Hodge was "temporarily leaving Government on compassionate grounds." She was replaced as Minister of State by Jamaican (via Ethiopia and South Africa) Barbara Follett, former acting Regional Secretary at the Institute of Race Relations and member of the National Alliance of Women's Organisations, and wife of novelist Ken Follett (a long-time LOLoc$t and Kikestan propaganda-whore for The Kike -- See "SOME BALLOXCO$T ATROCITY-PORN").

On September 22, 2009, Hodge was reappointed Minister for Culture and Tourism.

SETTINGS

The series spans several virtual MMORPGs, not exclusively the titular world of Sword Art Online.

Sword-Art Online

The first virtual game world, as well as the setting of the first arc of the story. The world takes the form of a giant floating castle called Aincrad, with 100 floors in it. Each floor has a medieval-themed setting and a dungeon with a boss, which has to be defeated before players can advance to the next higher floor. Like most RPGs, it implements a level based system.

Alfheim Online

The setting for the second arc of the story. All players in the game have wings and are capable of flight. It is a large world, divided into separate 'homelands' for each of its fairy races. In Alfheim's center is a very large tree called Yggdrasil, and the goal of the game is to reach the top. It implements a skill based system with players increasing their stats by developing both their combat and non-combat skills, in a fashion similar to the The Elder Scrolls game series. Aincrad, the castle of the first game, is later accessible to ALO players as well.

Gun-Gale Online

The setting for the third arc of the story. It is a virtual game world with a main focus on guns, although melee weapons like lightsabers and knives also exist.

Under-World

The setting for the fourth arc of the story. It is graphically the most realistic of all VRMMOs to date. The flow of time in UW is much faster than the real world's, just like Accel-World. Even so, the actual rate of UW's time flow is still unknown. However, in the "There is but one ultimate way" side story, the rate is said to be 1000 times faster than that of the "real" world.

REALLY NOT THAT BAD

REALLY NOT THAT BAD, ONCE EVERY FEW YEARS OR SO, BUT OFTEN TERRIBLE

Most of her songs are annoying and sort of pointless. Sometimes they are worse than that, and when she's bad she's really bad (she sang a damn duet with bloody Beyoncé! -- click on this link at your peril),

I'm sure she'd drive me nuts if I was forced to live with her, so I'd have to reject her if she begged me.

But when she's good she's really not that bad.

"Hands" (1998, co-written with Patrick Leonard; though he probably just arranged it and then scammed a writing credit as the producer; however the Christmas Version below was produced by Arif Mardin) is one of the best songs of the past few decades. It was never released as a single. I'm sure she intended it to mean the exact opposite of the meaning I take from it. I'm sure she intended it to promote every sort of kikey fake sentimentality that she's been brainwashed with. Still, I like it for what came out of her that was still decent and un-kiked.

I think she's one of those unfortunate people who could be a really good singer-songwriter if her mind and soul weren't so kiked and her debut record hadn't sold 12,000,000 copies (2 for every poor Jew fried in Eva Braun's gas oven). But they are, and it did, so at best -- sometimes she's really not that bad.





HANDS

In the end only kindness matters

If I could tell the world just one thing
It would be that we're all OK
And not to worry 'cause worry is wasteful
And useless in times like these

I won't be made useless
I won't be idle with despair

I will gather myself around my faith
For light does the darkness most fear

My hands are small, I know
But they're not yours, they are my own
But they're not yours, they are my own
And I am never broken

Poverty stole your golden shoes
It didn't steal your laughter
And heartache came to visit me
But I knew it wasn't ever after

We will fight, not out of spite
For someone must stand up for what's right
'Cause where there's a man who has no voice
There ours shall go singing

My hands are small I know
But they're not yours, they are my own
But they're not yours, they are my own
I am never broken

In the end only kindness matters
In the end only kindness matters

I will get down on my knees, and I will pray
I will get down on my knees, and I will pray
I will get down on my knees, and I will pray

My hands are small I know
But they're not yours, they are my own
But they're not yours, they are my own
And I am never broken

My hands are small I know
But they're not yours, they are my own
But they're not yours, they are my own
And I am never broken

We are never broken

We are God's eyes, God's hands

We are God's hands
We are God's hands

We are reflections of God



PIECES OF JEW

And here's one of the worst songs ever, written by the same lass. The title track of her multi-million-selling debut album. The lyrical content should make plain the reason that The Kike promoted the record to hell. (I'm sure it didn't hurt that her name starts with "jew".)

She was probably sincere; but I amuse myself imagining that as an astute songwriting-saleswoman she sat down and asked herself, "Now what sort of song can I write that will guarantee I get a record contract and riches and fame from these Jew-bastards I keep running into at these record companies."

PIECES OF YOU

She's an ugly girl, does it make you want to kill her?
She's an ugly girl, do you want to kick in her face?
She's an ugly girl, she doesn't pose a threat.
She's an ugly girl, does that make you feel safe?
Ugly girl, ugly girl, do you hate her
Cause she's pieces of you?

She's a pretty girl, does she make you think nasty thoughts?
She's a pretty girl, do you want to tie her down?
She's a pretty girl, do you call her a bitch?
She's a pretty girl, did she sleep with your whole town?
Pretty girl, pretty girl, do you hate her
Cause she's pieces of you?

You say he's a faggot, does it make you want to hurt him?
You say he's a faggot, do you want to bash in his brain?
You say he's a faggot, does he make you sick to your stomach?
You say he's a faggot, are you afraid you're just the same?
Faggot, Faggot, do you hate him
Cause he's pieces of you?

You say he's a Jew, does it mean that he's tight?
You say he's a Jew, do you want to hurt his kids tonight?
You say he's a Jew, he'll never wear that funny hat again.
You say he's a Jew as though being born were a sin.
Oh Jew, oh Jew, do you hate him
Cause he's pieces of you?

CHINESE BABY "TOO UGLY"

Before

After

Intolerant Chinaman?

Chinese man sues his wife for being ugly, and the court AGREES... awarding him £75,000

Jian Feng was confused after his wife gave birth to an 'incredibly ugly' baby

He accused her of cheating and she admitted to spending £62,000 on plastic surgery

He then claimed she got him to marry her under false pretenses


They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

But for one man from northern China, this was not the case.

Earlier this year, Jian Feng, divorced and sued his wife for being ugly.

Before and after: Jian Feng's wife spent US$100,000 on plastic surgery before she got married

He won his case and was awarded a little under £75,000 by the judge, Fox 31 reported.

Mr Feng said he took issue with his wife’s looks only after the couple’s daughter was born.

He was shocked by the child’s appearance, calling her ‘incredibly ugly’ and saying she looked like neither one of her parents.

Mr Feng was so outraged that he initially accused his wife of cheating.

Faced with the accusation, his wife admitted to spending around £62,000 on plastic surgery which had altered her appearance drastically.

She had the work done before she met her husband and never told him about it after they met.

Mr Feng filed for divorce saying his wife had deceived him and convinced him to marry her under false pretenses.

The judge agreed with him and awarded him the damages.

The Daily Mail !
  • "Your one-sentence-paragraph paper!"
  • "Your four-headline-story paper!"

"Femail" Comments:
  • "Oh dear....."
  • "What world do we live in..."
  • "this story is so messed up lol"
  • "Charmer."
  • "This world had gone mad..."
  • "The world has gone mad, I am speechless."
  • "What a shallow man !!!!!!!"
  • "This story beggars belief!! Unbelievable."

So hypocritical. If that happened in the U.K., Canada or the U.S. -- if an ugly man had plastic surgery then married a woman, without telling her, and then they had an "ugly" baby -- she'd divorce him, and bleed him dry in the courts, demanding a massive payout, for fraud, alimony, child support, emotional damages, therapy, you name it.

Of course, the same thing happens in the U.S. all the time. A women divorced her husband because on their honeymoon she found out he was bald and wore a wig. He had to pay her damages. A man got a divorce just because after the wedding he found out his "wife" was a man. There are a few cases like that. Some people are so intolerant.

"I Like Her Not!"

A good movie would be: two ugly pigs (think of those ugly Kikes who are always starring in Hollywood movies) have massive plastic surgery; they meet'n'mate (lying to each other all the time, as you'd expect); they breed a double-ugly child: comedy ensues.



中国人的相貌将变得越来越丑陋

作者 : 螺杆


为什么男人喜欢年轻美丽温柔善良的女人?为什么女人喜欢英俊帅气身材高大的男人?所谓一见钟情,就是王八瞅绿豆,互相对上眼了,只要你看顺了眼,就算对方是个麻子,你也会觉得那每颗麻子都在向你微笑。所以人类择偶,外观形象是第一条件,这之中就有个自然选择问题,而且这个自然选择是有益于物种进化的,总的趋势,人类的进化方向应该是良性的。比如纯种的非洲女黑人,乳房形状普遍是锥形口袋式的,经过与白人杂交,这类乳房就改良为坚挺的碗型了,哪一种乳房的形状美呢?当然是后一种,这就是良性进化。

现代人类对美的评判标准,取决于漫长的进化过程记忆遗传和社会价值取向。但我却发现中国人已经变的越来越丑了,不知是不是基因逆向淘汰的结果?古代的风土人情就无法考究了,不过近现代有大量历史照片为证,从资料照片上看,整个人类的外观都在进化,是在向美的方向进化。

中国人最丑陋的时期是满清,慈禧太后据说是当时宫里的大美人,按理说真正的美人就是到了老年,也应该是个丰韵犹存的玉婆,但我们从历史照片或画像上看她就很丑陋,不会比邓大姐好看到哪里。特别是清末民初的中国女人,简直是丑的不能再丑,赛金花和小凤仙据说是当时的名妓,名妓嘛,应该是绝代佳人吧?但从照片上看也都是丑八怪。现在看起来很丑陋的清末民初的穿着打扮,比如那种象是支撑着脖子的很高很硬的衣领,将半张脸都盖住了,在当时居然是一种时尚。

我记得外婆出门做客就是这样的:一身玄黑,扎着裤腿的小脚,过膝的大褂,一顶黑绒帽,一杆长烟袋,走起路来必须左右摇晃控制平衡,不然三寸金莲不足以支撑她的身体。同时代的男人也一样,因为服装都是平面裁剪的,那么穿在身上就很别扭,腋窝和裤裆都是前后鼓鼓囊囊的,不论男女,看上去都象一口大酱缸,根本就不是现在的古装电影中所展示的那种苗条样子,因为现在的中国传统服装比如旗袍,都是西式裁剪的。不过张艺谋总算讲点真实,他导演的一些电影中就还原了中国人在这个历史时期的本来形象,所以也曾被爱国人士骂了个狗血喷头,说他丑化中国人。

中国人比较美的时期是在三四十年代,上海是个代表,受外来文化影响,当年的演艺界就出现了很多美女,比如胡蝶,美不美?军政界也有不少俊男,比如陈立夫,帅不帅?这是说上层社会和商女阶层。平民社会,讲时尚美并影响到体貌的,是满洲国的男女人,由于地域(北方气候)和文化(日本影响)的关系,都领先了其它地区的中国人一步,这种基因的良性遗传,一直延续到九十年代,比如体质优势,体育界的辽宁队就一直向国家队输送选手,这是说体魄。再说女人的相貌和身材,没点姿色是不能从事卖肉生涯的,南方沿海城市的黄色娘子军,大部分也来自满洲,号称“北妹”。

紧接着,五十年代初,大陆中国人就进入了退化阶段,退化到延安式的革命美,男人是锅盖头,人民服,女人是齐耳短发,列宁装,不论男女,都戴一顶解放帽以示革命,人人都以土的掉渣,泥腿子和一身臭汗为美,以“资产阶级的香风臭气”为丑。而且,凡经历一次大规模意识形态革命(如延安整风、土地革命、文化革命),中国人的审美意识就退化至少半个世纪。在这期间,六十年代初也有一个审美意识复苏时期,也就是文化禁锢不那么严厉,“资产阶级思想泛滥”的时期,也是文艺界首当其冲。

后来经历了一次文革,就又倒退回延安土八路状态了。毛泽东个人卫生是极差的,不涮牙不洗澡,但是没办法,意识形态专制嘛,全党,全军,全国人民都要向这个逐臭之夫看齐,都要以他为美。他不喜欢养花,全国人民就只好种倭瓜,他不喜欢西服,全国人民就只能穿毛式高领服装。这种魔鬼境界的人怎么能生出美的后代呢?所以毛泽东们的后代,有一个算一个,没有漂亮英俊的。

因为有社会价值取向这个因素起作用,中国人的自然美就被社会所影响了,什么是自然美?就是纯粹形态的美,这种自然美是几乎是整个生态的共识,是以黄金比例为基础的,人的相貌之所以英俊美丽,是因为五官布置的均衡合理,有的人五官拆开后都不美,但组合起来就美,反之也一样。身材也是,头、驱干,四肢要合乎比例,三围要突出。宋玉的《登徒子好色赋》说“增之一分太长,减之一分太短”,就是这个意思。

整个自然界也是这样,青蛙就比癞蛤蟆美,喜鹊就比乌鸦美,美在什么地方?身段和颜色,癞蛤蟆和乌鸦,头大肚子大,没脖子没腰,而且皮肤和羽毛单调难看,加上难听的叫声和脏兮兮的生活习性,形象就更讨厌了,以毛泽东为代表的很多中共官僚就是这副模样。但是低级动物是意识不到自己美丑的,比较高级智能的动物就有这种意识,雄孔雀如果不认为自己的羽毛美,就不会在雌孔雀面前甚至女人面前开屏。当然,动物与人不是一个社会,所以审美观还是有区别的,公猴认为母猴美,而且能为了美女猴而大打出手,但在人类看来,公猴就是比母猴美,而且人类对动物的普遍审美认同是:雄性比雌性美,幼雏比年长的美。

六十后和八十后出俊男美女,因为六十年代初和八十年代初对中国文化来说,相当于一种小的文艺复兴时期,受俄国和欧美外来文化影响,城乡小资产阶级有了相对的思想自由,这时候人的心灵是美的,那么也就影响到了后代。但是,六十后普遍弱智,这也许是从小挨饿,先天不足造成的,这代俊男美女,刚刚有了点生活方式的解放,就被邓小平的一埸“清理精神污染”和“严打”秋风扫落叶了,还被枪毙了不少。八十后也是不错的,看看今天的三十左右岁的中年男女,还是美女帅哥多一些。

因为八十年代初,中国人的道德体系还是健康的,爱情至上的婚姻观在青年男女中还有地位,那么美女帅哥这种天作之合也就比较普遍,勿庸置疑,后代的形象也不会差。但七十后和九十后就不行了,七十年代,大家都知道,那是文革,是中国人性最扭曲最丑陋时期,自私、恐惧、互相坑轧,后代的基因当然会受这种不良影响。九十后那就更糟了,得天独厚的小太阳一代,营养过剩,肥男和丑女多,到中小学校看一看,男生中尽是肥仔,不是太肥就是太瘦,肥的象猪,瘦的象狗。女生呢,一脸男相者多,以纤瘦眼大嘴歪为美,小腿细的并拢了也能伸进拳头,就是现在流行的视频聊天中挤眉弄眼,小嘴噘成鸡屁眼那副胶姆糖的样子。

都说上有天堂下有苏杭,这意思也是说苏杭的美女多,传说苏杭的美女是隋炀帝南巡时就地安置的宫女后代,苏杭美女的特点是小巧玲珑,身材均衡,并没有绝色的美貌,有人会说这是古代宫女与身材瘦小的南方男人结合的后代,其实呢,是一方水土养一方人,是古代吴越的文化地域造就了这种优势,南方男人中小白脸帅哥也多,今天再看看这个人间天堂,就没有这个优势了。从二十年前改革开放伊始,中国美女便开始频频下嫁丑男,而且这一趋势至今是愈演愈烈。

美丑结合,丑的一方多是男性,而且性欲旺盛,据医书上讲,性生活中性欲强烈的一方,往往基因遗传能力也是强势的。更重要的是,物种基因的遗传是由父本决定的,母本只能起到改良作用,比如白种女人与黑种男人结合,生下来的只能是黑人,不会是白人。这种劣性发展的结果是,美的基因在这种演变中逐渐被掩蔽乃至淘汰了,后代继承的就是丑男基因。至于丑丑结合,那就更不用说了,穷男再是帅哥,也只好与丑女结合,俗话说爹矬矬一个,妈矬矬一窝,除非继承了隔代的基因(假设祖父母有一方是俊男美女),或者基因产生了变异。

好象马列主义的政治经济学有过这样的理论:人的主观意识取决于客观存在,经济基础决定上层建筑。我认为这本来是个公理,人是社会的人,其经济地位必然影响他的社会价值,当社会价值主导意识形态时,人的道德观以及受道德观影响的一切价值观都会发生逆转。对比一下,会发现在中国社会各阶段,婚姻观受社会环境影响是很大的,比如大饥荒年代,能娶到售货员的男人就很幸运,因为能走后门解决配给品;文革时期,能嫁给工人是一种时尚,因为是领导阶级;文革后,能嫁给摘帽右派也是很时髦的,因为平反右派有很多福利和海外关系;至于今天,则是“笑贫不笑娼”,这也曾经是中国社会的天经地义,而且这种价值观都产生在所谓的盛世朝代。

今天也是这样,盛世。盛世的中国女人,并不是将嫁给俊男作为婚配终极目标,恰恰相反,女性开始从心理上杜绝此类选择了,因为社会环境改变了人类的择偶观,这个改变是社会的,非自然的。从追求美的本性被压抑,变成被动接受或主动接受,形成了一种反自然主义的择偶观,久而久之,就形成了生物遗传的转变。一切生命本来都是在自然选择中进化的,而中国人却从人类族群的良性循环堕入了恶性循环,而且正在这样循环下去。

中国人变丑,不仅是外观相貌的退化,思想品质也在退化。相由心生,内心丑陋者的外表,即使原来很英俊漂亮也会慢慢变丑。人类的原始本性与动物没区别,最基本的本性就是自私,如果极端自私,那么所有的人类美德就会丧失,这样的人所组成的族群也就沦为动物世界了。以中国为例,中国社会因为经济转型和文化衰退,生存竞争激烈了,价值取向扭曲了,这种社会环境就逼迫丑男研习厚黑钻营之术,在经济方面发展突破,以此获取丰厚的利益回报并获得婚姻机会,使自身后代得到遗传繁衍。

在这个社会转型的时间差之下,中国的俊男们由于不识时务,以为什么英俊帅气阳刚之美就能保持择偶优势,没有象丑男那样跃入商海大潮,结果在单元化取向时代,就丧失了遗传优势最大化的机会,成为传宗接代的失败者。当然,他们也没有完全失去男性魅力的优势,但仅仅剩下性交优势而已,比如给阔太太们做鸭。目前中国社会,丑女嫁俊男,丑男娶美女这一婚配格局已成蔚然大观。甚至老男娶少女,孙女嫁爷爷这种时光逆转的婚姻也主导了社会风气。

可以想象,再过几十年,中国人将变得奇丑无比,不仅外观丑陋,内心世界也将是猥琐的,从而成为人类社会中最丑恶的族群。应该说,中国人在“盛世”这个经济发展的重要时期所付出的民族代价是巨大的,因为几代人的丑陋相貌就此将形成一种模式,一种定局,而且是无可扭转的大势所趋,从某种意义上说,这和亡国绝种没有多大区别。

CANADA: WHORES EARN THEIR KEEP

John Baird condemns UN’s Richard Falk for bias against Israel, ‘offensive’ comments

Mike Blanchfield, Canadian Press | Oct 26, 2012

GATINEAU, Que. — A United Nations special investigator’s latest criticism of Israel’s conduct towards the Palestinians is part of a disturbing pattern, Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird charged Friday.

Baird’s remarks marked the latest example of two of the most firmly planted pillars of Canadian foreign policy under the Conservatives: A defence of Israel and criticism of the UN.

Canada joined Israel and the United States in calling for the removal of Richard Falk, the UN’s special rapporteur on human rights in the Palestinian territories.

This week, Falk called for a boycott of companies that have dealings with Israeli settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem until they meet international rights standards.

Baird said Falk’s latest report is part of a pattern of bias towards Israel.

“Mr. Falk’s comments are both offensive and extremely unhelpful,” Baird said. “I wish this was the first time he has made such comments, or taken such actions, but it’s not.

“I think when people make these type of outrageous statements, they’ve got to be condemned,” he added.

“There’s a pattern here obviously that causes us great concern.”

Baird did not elaborate. In an earlier statement, he echoed the calls for Falk’s removal.

The Harper government has been highly critical of what it says is a UN bias against Israel, a country it vocally defends at every opportunity. Critics of the Harper government accuse it of the opposite — of an almost slavish support of everything Israeli

Harper decided not to deliver Canada’s address to the UN General Assembly this past September even though he was in New York to receive an international statesman award.

Harper used his acceptance speech to criticize the UN. He was being honoured by the Appeal of Conscience Foundation, an inter-faith peace organization founded by a rabbi.

Baird delivered Canada’s UN address and used it to level a blistering attack on the organization itself, singling out its inability to stop the bloodshed in Syria.

Canada got another opportunity earlier this week when Falk said that Israeli companies and others based in the U.S., Europe and Mexico may be violating international human rights and humanitarian laws. He pointed to companies that help build and provide security for illegal Israeli settlements, as well as those that exploit Palestinian resources.

Falk called for further investigations into the matter and for a boycott of those companies. Falk noted that Israel’s construction of settlements has been growing while it ignores UN resolutions condemning the practice.

A senior government official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said Baird is most concerned about Falk’s call for a boycott.

Baird said Canada isn’t contemplating any further action, other than speaking out.

Immigration Minister Jason Kenney said Friday he hadn’t read Falk’s report.

But that didn’t stop Kenney from launching into a passionate defence of Israel and a scathing criticism of the Jewish state’s detractors.

It’s our view that there can be entirely valid, legitimate criticism of the policies of an Israeli government
“It’s our view that there can be entirely valid, legitimate criticism of the policies of an Israeli government, but those efforts to single out the only Jewish country in the world for particular unfair treatment or to target it, that sometimes becomes very worrisome as to what’s really behind this,” Kenney said.

Kenney singled out the UN Human Rights Council, which he said “has passed dozens of resolutions” on Israel but “virtually none on brutal dictatorships like Iran and Syria.

“I think there is an imbalance that is very problematic and that I and the prime minister have identified as something that does not reflect the best values of human dignity,” Kenney added.

“I believe that the Jewish people have a right to a homeland, that those who say that the Jews alone don’t have a right to a homeland have a lot of explaining to do.

In September 2011, Kenney told a UN gathering in New York that Israel is becoming the target of a “new anti-Semitism” that is “now disguised as anti-American, anti-Western and anti-Israel, but it ultimately espouses the same old hatred and intent.

COMMENTS:

  • Baird is a whore for the jew. All Canadian politicains are.
  • Thank you, Mr. Baird, once again Canada speaks out against lunacy and idiocy of UN.
  • Harper and Baird are sleeping with the Rothschild zionists. Why Israel President came over a few months ago? To tell Harper and Baird to do lifting for Israel in UN and elsewhere ,just like USA is asking India to do their dirty job. Let let them do themselves.
  • A Pit Bull trying to act human. John should just shut his yap. He big mouth is writing a check we can't or want to cash.
  • Sing, Baird, sing for your supper.
  • With Trump & Colbert titillating Americans, one can only futilely speculate about the millions of dollars worth of matzo balls charitably deposited upon conservative chins.
  • All Kenney is doing is deflecting what is happening in Israel. It's like a child crying that little "Bobby" is cheating too while the child himself is caught cheating. Such a weak argument.
  • I didn't know that Baird works for Israel instead of Canada, must've missed that memo.
  • what do you think they promised Baird?
  • I have no idea, i feel like i voted for a dam pro-Israel government!
  • The Palestinians will bid for recognition at the UN General Assembly by November 15. At least 115 countries, and possibly as many as 150, out of a total of 193, are forecast to vote in favour of upgraded "non-member state" status. An upgrade from "observer entity" to "non-member observer state" would give the Palestinians access to bodies such as the international criminal court, in which they could seek to pursue legal cases against Israel over settlements, the occupation of the West Bank and the blockade of Gaza. Let's see what Baird and company will do when this happens. Are they going to flout judgements from the ICC and other world bodies? When the ICC asks Interpol to issue warrants for the arrest of Israeli war criminals what is Canada going to do?
  • Well that is good to hear. The Oslo accord struck as something puzzling. It gave Palestine a vote for their leadership, which by international observers say it was one of the most democratic they have witnessed. Then when the results were final the USA and Israel imposed sanctions because they didn't like the result. Doesn't give the Palestinians any hope does it.
  • Nobody would give any thought towards Isreal if they were not the ones kissing @ss and supplying western nations with intelligence data and military bases. Our governments get what they want and in return they look the other way when Isreal annexes new land. Its a sad outcome but I can't see the current policy changing anytime soon.
  • Oh the sweet irony.If it walks like a..., if it quacks like a... Then it's a Jew. "Falk described his family background as "assimilationist Jewish with a virtual denial of even the ethnic side of Jewishness", and more recently described himself as "an American Jew"."
  • These Buffoons - Harper, Kenney and Baird continue to devalue Canada's place in international relations. Canada is now seen as Israeli sycophant Numero Uno, replacing the United States. Falk has stated the obvious - Israel continues to break international law with its continued occupation of the West Bank and build illegal settlements on Palestinian lands acquired by extortion, force and subterfuge. Time for a boycott of Israeli goods made in illegal settlements and a boycott of companies that enable the construction and continuation of such settlements.
  • Man I sleep tight every night just knowing that a big drooler like John Baird is out on the world stage taking care of my interests.
  • It is obvious that Richard Falk has the same problem that Hitler had. Hatred for the Jews.
  • Another bloviating buffoon digging the Conservative's electoral grave in obedient service of the Israeli government's illegal invasion of other countries, illegal possession of nuclear weapons, illegal occupation of Palestine territory, and war crimes against civilian Palestinian population.
  • This what I find funny, Iran ignores UN resotutions and bang they are slapped with sanctions, and rightfully so. But when Israel repeatedly ignores UN resolutions nothing happens, not a thing. And when someone brings it up, the person is condemned. Does anyone see this as odd?
  • John Baird calling somebody biased about Israel, what a joke!
  • Jews have a perfectly legitimate right to their homeland and no serious commentator disputes this.
  • Well, the ZionBot is active in here. For them, John Baird will do anything, even grow a baird. A set would be far better.
  • Baird is a Hypocrite as he is Bias against Palestinians who have been living in Hell in many refugee camps in many countries . Treated like dirt with reduced rights in the Land the European Jews stole from them near the end and soon after the second world war .To call Israel a Democracy is a JOKE . From marriage to land it is NOT democratic .
  • Not really sure what Israel has done to deserve our unconditional support. We should have their back when they're in the right, but if we're not careful they will drag us into wars and problems that we shouldn't have anything to do with.
  • Harper/Baird have sided with Israel on 100% of the outstanding issues.
  • I guess they feel it's necessary as it seems there are so many wrongly out to wipe Israel off the map.
  • Nobody is denying Israel's right to exist and prosper within defensible borders.
  • Israel has tried and tried to make peace with Palestine. Work with us they beg. And they get shelled in return.
  • "Nobody is denying Israel's right to exist and prosper within defensible borders." oh really..?? Well.. those borders moved for THAT VERY REASON. Isreal could not defend herself with the borders as they were. Which.. by the way... Israel WAS ready to do. Sit by and live with the borders. Then guess what..?? Someone started shelling them. Over .. and over... and over. So Israel went to war.. and reclaimed some land. And that land is till part of Israels borders. It might teach the nutbars not to try to kill the Israeli's. Cause every time they do.. they lose something.
  • Rather than a rational discussion of foreign affairs Baird as climbed on his high horse and rushed to the defense of Israel. I'm pro Israel and they are one of the few countries that we can deal with on an honest basis. That doesn't mean that we should be slavishly agreeing with them on every detail. They do make mistakes and the settlement issue may well be one of them. Whatever the case it is in our interests to be just as frank with Israel as we are with the Palestinians.
  • there is nothing 'slavish' about resisting a call for a boycott of Israeli companies
  • The land was ALWAYS there but the lazy Palestinians didn't want it until the Israeli's had turned the dessert into an Oasis!!
  • Any company that does business in the very illegal Isreali settlements should be boycotted. And the Canadian government's unconditional support for the Isreali government is more than a bit tiresome.
  • Every time Israel is criticised, you get the same automatic reaction from the U.S., and then Canada parroting it.
  • "Richard A. Falk. Professor Emeritus of International Law at Princeton University. Religion: Jewish", (as reported elsewhere). Mr. Falk is certainly more qualified and a damn sight less prejudiced & tainted than either kennney and Baird.
  • Harper is playing the role as the puppet.
  • Harper is not "playing". He IS a Puppet and Stooge and an honorary member of Israel's Knesset.
  • We are hearing many comments from the Islamists' useful idiots in their support for having Israel wiped off the map.
  • I must of missed it because I can't see where it says "Israel wiped off the map."
  • What the world is witnessing, is the personal self destruction of a delusional fool who goes to extremes to show how the world just how out of sync he is. Anything this old drunk says is a predetermined conclusion. We all know this old fool is on his way down. A victim of his own tongue
  • Did they sober him up for the speech..?

ソウルを大混乱させた「DDoS攻撃」……いつか日本も標的になる

実行部隊3000人! 金正恩の実績作りで増強される「北朝鮮サイバーテロ部隊」の実力


サピオ 平成23年7月20日

文=高永チョル(元韓国国防部北朝鮮分析官)

少ない費用で大きな破壊効果が期待できるサイバーテロは、困窮を極める北朝鮮にとって強力な戦闘手段となりつつある。同国は保有装備の戦力差を情報戦で挽回できると見て、サイバー部隊を増強中だ。「北朝鮮のハッキング能力は米CIAに比べて遜色ないレベル」(韓国軍報告書)との分析もあり、米国や韓国は警戒を強めている。北朝鮮サイバー部隊の全貌を、元韓国国防部北朝鮮分析官の高永チョル氏が明かす。

2011年3月4日、韓国ソウル市とその周辺にある政府機関など数十のウェブサイトが、「DDoS攻撃」と呼ばれるサイバーテロに見舞われた。

被害を受けたのは、大統領府、国家情報院、韓国軍合同参謀本部、在韓米軍、外交通商省、国民銀行など。ウェブサイトがアクセス不能に陥り、銀行決済もストップするなど大混乱。回復するまでに3日から1週間もかかった。

北朝鮮のサイバーテロは、作戦の大半を北京、瀋陽、大連、上海といった中国の大都市を拠点に行なっていることが多い。しかも中国政府が見て見ぬふりをしているため、その実態は判然としないのが実情だ。しかし韓国政府は3月のサイバーテロを北朝鮮による“犯行”と断定している。

09年7月7日にも、韓国は政府機関や金融機関、マスコミなどが相次いで接続障害を起こす大規模なサイバーテロ攻撃を受けた。その際、韓国政府は攻撃に使用されたIPアドレスを徹底的に追跡し、北朝鮮逓信省が中国国内で使用していたIPだったことを突き止めた。2011年3月の攻撃ではその時と同じアドレスも使われていた。

北朝鮮のサイバー攻撃は、ここ数年エスカレートしており、「DDoS攻撃」だけでなく、政府や軍のコンピュータに不正侵入し、機密データを盗み取ることもしばしばだ。

09年には韓国陸軍第3軍司令部のネットワークに不正にアクセス。そこから国立環境科学院化学物質安全管理センターに接続できる暗号を盗み、今度は同院のシステムに侵入。化学物質生産企業や関係機関の住所などのデータを窃取した。有事の際、短距離ミサイルや、射程60kmの240mm射砲の射撃座標用に使われる可能性が指摘されている。

2011年4月にも、韓国の農協のコンピュータが不正侵入される事件があった。捜査の結果、北朝鮮の10個のIPがハッキングに使用されたことが判明している。

最近こうした北朝鮮によるサイバー攻撃やハッキングが多発している背景には、金正日の後継者に決まったとされる金正恩の存在がある。10年3月の哨戒艦爆沈事件や11月の延坪島砲撃事件と同様、金正恩が「韓国に対して強い軍事行動を起こすことができる指導者」であることをアピールし、北朝鮮の強盛大国化を国内外に誇示する狙いがあると見られるのだ。

かつて金正日も、父親の金日成の後継者に内定した前後、ラングーン事件(83年)、大韓航空機爆破事件(87年)などの爆弾テロを相次いで起こしている。それと同じようなことが繰り返されていると見ている。

ネットを使った心理・情報戦も

北朝鮮のハッキングは、米国防総省の機密文書の暗号を解読する目的で始まった。軍指揮自動化大学(5年制、現・金一軍事大学)が、86年に100人のコンピュータ専門要員を教育し始めたのが最初である。91年、湾岸戦争で米国と連合国が勝利すると、金正日はサイバー戦の重要性を認識。コンピュータ専門要員をロシアや東ヨーロッパにある北朝鮮の大使館に派遣、そこを拠点に、ハッキングを行なうようになった。

専門のハッカー部隊が創設されたのは95年である。当初は労働党作戦部の傘下に置かれていたが、09年に組織改編され、現在は人民武力部の工作機関である偵察総局の傘下に統合された。同局の実権は党中央軍事委員会の副委員長である金正恩が握っているとされる。

ちなみに、同年8月、金正日は人民武力部に対して、こう訓示を垂れた。

「現代の戦争は石油を使って砲弾を撃ち合う戦争から、コンピュータを駆使する情報戦争に変わった。われわれのサイバー部隊は一人の兵士のケガもなく、帝国主義陣営を追い詰めている。その戦闘能力は世界最高だ。さらに磨きをかけろ」

これらのサイバーテロ部隊を統括しているのは、朝鮮人民軍総参謀部の「情報統制センター」である。同センターの指揮下には、実行部隊である「偵察総局121局」、情報・心理戦を担当する「偵察総局204局」や同総局の情報偵察部隊などが置かれている。

「121局」は、10年にそれまでの「121所」から「局」に昇格となり、人員も500人から一気に3000人に増加したことが判明している。

北朝鮮がこうしたサイバーテロ部隊を増強し、世界中に展開できる秘密は、国家ぐるみのハッカーの英才教育にある。その仕組みはこうだ。まず、全国から優秀な成績を収めた小学生をスカウト。平壌の金星第一・第二高等中学校(6年制)に入学させる。

1学年は100~150人程度。ここで徹底した英才教育を行なう。すでにこの段階で、かなり複雑なプログラミングやソフト開発ができるような訓練を受ける。特に優秀な生徒は、豪華な食事を与えられたり、地方にいる両親を呼び寄せられるように、平壌に住居が用意されるなどの特典が与えられる。

そして優秀な成績を収めた生徒だけが、“北朝鮮のマサチューセッツ工科大”と言われる金策工業総合大学や、金日成総合大学、金一軍事大学といった大学へ進学する。ここで、さらに高度なコンピュータ教育を受ける。卒業後、彼らは軍のサイバー専門部隊に配置されるか、さらに中国などに留学してレベルアップを図る。こうして若くて優秀なハッキングの専門家を、国を挙げて大量に育成しているのである。

そして北朝鮮がハッキングとともに重視しているのが、インターネットなどを使った情報・心理戦である。

02年12月に行なわれた韓国大統領選挙では、金大中の対北朝鮮「抱擁政策・太陽政策」を引き継ぐ姿勢を見せた盧武鉉が、劇的な逆転勝利を収めた。しかし、その裏には、情報・心理作戦を担当する前述の「204局」などによる巧みな情報操作があった。「盧武鉉が当選しなければ、北との戦争になる」との情報をネットに大量に書き込み、形勢不利だった盧武鉉を支持するように、若者たちの心に働きかけていたのだ。来年の大統領選挙でも、同じことをしてくるはずだ。

金正恩は自らの実績を高めるために、さらに大規模なサイバーテロを仕掛けてくる可能性が高く、新たなハッキング技術の開発にも力を入れているとされる。通常戦力では朝鮮人民軍を圧倒している日本も、通信インフラや原発、空港、鉄道などがサイバーテロの標的になりうる。早急に危機管理態勢を強化すべきだ。

North Korean army minister 'executed with mortar round'

A North Korean army minister was executed with a mortar round for reportedly drinking and carousing during the official mourning period after Kim Jong-il's death.

By Julian Ryall, Tokyo, 24 Oct 2012

Kim Chol, vice minister of the army, was taken into custody earlier this year on the orders of Kim Jong-un, who assumed the leadership after the death of his father in December.

On the orders of Kim Jong-un to leave "no trace of him behind, down to his hair," according to South Korean media, Kim Chol was forced to stand on a spot that had been zeroed in for a mortar round and "obliterated."

The execution of Kim Chol is just one example of a purge of members of the North Korean military or party who threatened the fledgling regime of Kim Jong-un.

So far this year, 14 senior officials have fallen victim to the purges, according to intelligence data provided to Yoon Sang-hyun, a member of the South Korean Foreign Affairs, Trade and Unification Committee.

Those that have fallen from favour include Ri Yong-ho, the head of the army and Ri Kwang-gon, the governor of the North Korean central bank.

Analysts suggest that Mr Kim, who took over as head of state after the death of his father late last year, is acting to consolidate his own power base and deter any criticism of his youthfulness and inexperience. Mr Kim is believed to be either 28 or 29.

"When Kim Jong-un became North Korean leader following the mourning period for his father in late December, high-ranking military officers started disappearing," a source told the Chosun Ilbo newspaper. "From information compiled over the last month, we have concluded that dozens of military officers were purged."

It also appears that Mr Kim ordered his loyal officials to use the excuse of misbehaviour during the mourning period for his father to remove any potential opponents.

Other officials have been executed by firing squads, including Ryu Kyong, a senior intelligence expert.

Since being elevated to second-in-command of the nation by his father in September 2010, Kim has reportedly been behind the dismissal of at least 31 senior officials.

CANADA: INTRNT ANONYMITY 2 B BANNED?

Conservative MP Dean Del Mastro says anonymous commenters on news articles should be forced to identify themselves

Josh Visser, The National Post [Toronto, owned by The Asper Kikes], Oct 26, 2012


Conservative MP Dean Del Mastro suggests that the government should look at ending anonymous comments on news articles as a way to combat online bullying.

“One of the best ways to end on-line and electronic bullying, libel and slander would be to force people posting hurtful comments to properly identify themselves,” Del Mastro wrote Thursday on Facebook. “This morning I read comments on a news story posted on an electronic news publication, many of them could only be described as hateful rants. The common denominator is that none of them identified the person that wrote them; this strikes me as something that parliament should address.”

The overwhelming majority of news websites in Canada allow for anonymous comments on their stories and the ability to remain anonymous has long been a central tenet of online culture.

Not surprisingly the Internet struck back against the formerly boisterous MP who has largely been shoved aside by the Harper government since allegations of election improprieties.

  • colin horgan@cfhorgan: re: Dean Del Mastro's idea that parliament should somehow "address" online commenters. How? By legislating the internet? good grief.
  • Mike V@MikeMcPickles: @cfhorgan Clearly, he stands with Vic "Danger" Toews. Clueless on the Internetz.
  • Pension Plan Puppets@mlse: I hope Dean Del Mastro asked parliament to eliminate anonymity on the Internet whole astride a donkey, holding a lance.
  • Seb FoxAllen@purpledocket: "The government should recognize, protect and regulate my right to read the comments." This is anti-conservative, big government nonsense


Del Mastro’s Facebook post generated a number of comments, many of them slamming his stance as anti-conservative and unenforceable.

“Dean: Current federal law allows for prosecution of libellous statements online. Court orders may be granted for discovery of those libelling. Also, current hate crime legislation allows the same, so your problems are already solved. If you have any other questions about federal law, you can always check with your MP,” wrote Mark Nesbitt.

“This is anti-conservative, big government nonsense,” Mike Sloan added.

Del Mastro responded to the discussion, saying online comments have a a “very real impact in society.”

“Whether it’s political discourse or other forms of debate or conversation, spewing vitriolic hatred electronically under the cover of anonymity is wrong and cowardly and there is a very real impact on many in society. I’m concerned by what I’m seeing,” he said.

  • nicholasi: Jews already moderate content and collect IP addresses at the Jew-owned and run YouTube, Gmail, Google, Facebook, New York Times, MSNBC, Much Music, MTV, Black Entertainment Network, Bravo, CBS, ABC, NBC, LA Times, Washington Post, Boston Herald, National Post, etc, etc, etc. What more do they want? Oh right. Complete control of all social interaction between non-jews.
  • nicholasi: Jew-employed "hate-speech" poster Dick Warman's identity was revealed and did he get in trouble. No, he got a bunch of jew-awards. http://news.nationalpost.com/2012/01/13/richard-warmans-hate-speech-quagmire/
  • Apex Predator: Trolls are people too. At best they push the envelope. My first reaction to the mask of a moniker was to view it as a cop out. No courage, no strength of character, a sign of weakness. There are those who wish to escalate disagreement and antagonism to more serious forms of conflict and hostility. I've always been confident of my ability to defend and look out for myself. One word: Family.
  • wabigoon: I will identify myself to you right now Dean if you under oath tell the trueth about your spending.
  • ibmetom: Someone suggesting to his employees that their continued employment is better ensured by donating to a certain politician, in a riding other than your own no less, might be construed as bullying.
  • nicholasi: The "MikeMurphy" character is proof that hasbarat Jews mostly love to pass themselves off as Paddies. 
  • Torontodude: I'm actually Han Solo, and for the record Greedo shot first.
  • Huh?: I'll tell ya what....If Del Mastro tells me who was responsible for the vote rigging conspiracy....I'll give him my name.
  • Huh?: Pretty funny coming from the guy who wouldn't repeat his own statements outside of the House for fear of being sued.
  • nicholasi: I really am Nicholas I, by the way. 
  • MikeMurphy: @ nicholasi: Ant a vile little anti-Semite to boot.
  • Onjr @ MikeMurphy: Prejudice and stupidity do seem to go together. Definitely a real charmer.
  • nicholasi: @ MikeMurphy: "Ant a vile little anti-Semite to boot." -- Oy vey! Vot a haytfull comment dat iss! I'll haffta report yu to de jewman rites kammishun. Oy oy oy!
  • nicholasi: @ MikeMurphy: Jew "MikeMurphy": "[nicholasi is] a vile LITTLE anti-Semite TO BOOT." -- Besides being discriminatory against Little People, that is a clear incitement to violence, a clear call for me to be beaten. You're lucky I don't report you to the Juman Rights people. Of course, you already know there's no way their kangaroo courts would even criticize some with a name like Shlomo. And of course even the 4/9 Jew Supreme Court of Canada would never punish one of their fellows for such Hate Speech. Still, the fact remains that you are clearly a bigot and a hate-monger. 
  • Onjr: @ nicholasi: Sorry to hear you've gone off your meds....
  • nicholasi: @ Onjr: FACT: Canadian Supreme Court: 9 Justices: 4 of them Jew. FACT. Nothing to do with "meds" or "you live in your mom's basement!" or any other hasbarat tactics. FACT: Canada less than 1% Jew. FACT: Supreme Court of Canada: 44.4% Jew.
  • rusherman: Why is it that When the government says they want to take names to end bullying, I get that opposite feeling. Like they would love to lean on those who disagree with them.
  • nicholasi: Jews especially hate the thought of non-Jews being permitted to talk to each other without supervision.
  • brianmouland: @ nicholasi: Bigot!
  • nicholasi: @ brianmouland: Oh, that is soooo hurtful! Jews especially hate the thought of non-Jews being permitted to talk to each other without supervision.
  • nicholasi: A lot of MPs probably hate the thought of people being able to discuss things anonymously because they're afraid of whistleblowers revealing all these pedophile/hooker/spying/kickback scandals so many of them are involved in. 
  • MikeMurphy: One takes those who wish to remain anonymous with a certain observant awareness. One can discern from the tone of a post, and sometime the moniker, the relative IQ of the poster. Those who appear to be whack jobs would never post under their real name. The require anonymity in order to function on the interwebz. Can you image the ososos, goose77, Fitzpatrick, mobi's, queer avengers, et al being outed with their real names. I can't because then they could not function and be subject to actual riducule for the extremist, or unwell personalities they are. Only the very strong will use their real identities.
  • SadDayForCanada: This man makes me sick. He is trying to impose draconian anti-privacy measures to supposedly combat "online bullying". This on the tail of the death of a young girl who committed suicide from bullying. Using a tragedy like this to try and pass an agenda as broad as this is despicable. Dean Del Mastro should be ashamed. What's next? Examination of all mail to make sure they contain no bullying?
  • Joe_Kaistoe: I guess the jig is up. My name is Annita Onymous, but I usually go by Ann. How does he propose to enforce this? Fine the newspapers? What happens when they shut down comments on newspapers and there are blogs that allow anonymous commenting? Are they going to shut them down too? These technological ignoramuses need to sit down with their children so they can be taught how the internet actually works.
  • goose 77: In the last federal election we had a large sordid vote rigging conspiracy and Del Mastro threw up every damned conceivable roadblock possible, in order to prevent Canadians from ascertaing who was responsible for it. And now the Gorilla is complaining about freedom of speech and forums like this. Would this fit in the "loony bin" ? Ludicrous!
  • nicholasi: How about all MPs should be forced to wear headgear equipped with a microphone, camera and GPS device for as long as they are allegedly "public servants"?
  • 00owl: The real cure is to educate people about logic. Teach them how to argue and that ad hominems do nothing for the truth value of any propositions you are arguing for or against. On a related note, I've never heard of anyone committing suicide because they got trolled on a forum that wasn't facebook. Maybe we should just ban facebook instead? Furthermore, I've also never heard of anyone who committed suicide because they got trolled online who wasn't between the ages of 12-18. Maybe we should ban 12-18 year olds? Just some more ideas for our government to consider.
  • nicholasi: "Maybe we should just ban facebook"? -- Impossible. It's owned by Jews and makes money and is used for data-mining and for keeping track of what the nonJews are up to, what they think, where they go, who they know, what they read, what they watch...
  • wabigoon: I dont miss that irritating, agressive, mouthpiece at all. Make him go away. Well the tables have turned and Harpers "attack dog" is complaining about how badly forum members are treating him. He wants to know who is hurting his feelings. But really what he wants is to have the gov be able to identify By Name those Canadians who dissagree with Harper and his harpies. The CPC want to know who you are so they can target their Regime Machine against you. On the other hand we would know how may posters that we suspect work for the Regime Machine post here but I think I alreasdy know who they are anyway.
  • goose 77: You know what has a real impact on society? Getting your brother to shake down his employees for a poltical donation.
  • The Mote in Your Eye: Why is is that the party that found the long form census and long gun registry too intrusive wants to monitor everything we do online?
  • Jason in Edmonton: He wants us all to ensure that we identify ourselves when commenting on news stories...why? So you can take individuals to court and bully people into not commenting? Yes there are some twits who comment on the person as opposed to the issue but really. The cons just want us on their database so the we can be marked as unfriendlies and they can either ignore us or in the case of people who actually hit on something they are afraid of, attempt to disenfranchise us. Another case of a cheater and liar wanting to have rules brought forth so that he can protect the farce he calls a campaign.
  • Mark Hahn: To be free, speech must sometimes be anonymous. Libel is no excuse for infringing this freedom, since online identities are and always have been available by warrant.
  • Slimpikins: It's a balance. Most people prefer to be anonymous because they don't want to face retribution from the government, an employer, or to attract wingnut stalker types who disagree with them so decide to show up at their house. A very few like to make malicious and slanderous statements that are knowingly false. However, most people are able to figure out that an anonymous statement carries limited credibility. If you take away the anonymity, you gain very little and expose people to all sorts of crap. As much as I would like to trust my government and believe that they aren't going to target me or come after me somehow for making an anti government statement, I just don't.
  • Mark Hahn: Harper's bunch are reactionaries, not conservatives in any sense of the word. This sort of Big Brother blather is a fine example - undebatable omnibus bills are another.
  • Against_the_grain: IMO, the most important aspect of a democracy is the anonymous vote. It exists for a reason; that no one can be intimidated or harassed by the powers that be for their positions on matters of governance. So too it should be for commenting on issues of the day. It isn't free speech unless it's free for everybody, no matter how ugly, hateful, callous, or stupid that some may be. I am in a far better position to ignore an insult that comes across my computer screen than to ignore government intrusion into my life. Bad, bad, bad idea.
  • mizfolia: Absolutely not. I would scarcely post at all if I put my name on it, and it's not because I'm worried about what I'm posting, it's that if your real name is there - THEN I think you could become much more of a target. I don't want to connect my post to Facebook, I rarely use it, and certainly don't want to get "connected" all over the place. Now that's what I call the end of privacy. Moderaters, fine! Be reasonable about it, I don't mind being moderated. Real names all the time, forget it! I'm a CPC voter, but I'm embarrassed by this guy.
  • JD55: Between some of the comments that are just plan rude and silly ( at times hilarious) I find there are opinions both fact and fiction that provide a side to these stories that alot of newspaers won't print. This has to bother a Goverment that tries to control it's message.
  • Seriously: Great! Then we can all know who the 1500 paid "communications" staffers are working for the PMO using our tax dollars.
  • MichealFitzPatrick: Why is there a picture of Chaz Bono with this article?
  • MsTerry: Many papers already allow comments only through Facebook. That certainly helps most people tone down the rhetoric. On the other hand, without anonymity, posters will hesitate to share personal experiences. Anyway, moderators usually remove the really hateful comments.
  • Mobiusrex: Still plenty of fake facebook accounts so even that does little if anything in the long run.
  • law4: I would say he and other conservative ministers should be open about this one sided agreements with China up in front of a committee going over every line and details the secret bastards a message from a conservative voter (reform) always lying through his teeth this guy
  • Anonymous66: Yeah, and I'm suuuure his party wouldn't be interested in that for the purposes of data-mining political criticism to improve the completeness of the enemies list they maintain on CIMS.
  • nicholasi: @ Anonymous66: "Data Mining" -- Jews already own and run YouTube, Gmail, Google, Facebook, NYT, Washignton Post, National Post, MTV, MushMusic, Bravo, LAT, NBC, CBS, ABC, etc etc etc. What more could they want to control? Oh right. They want to monitor and control all communications between non-Jews.
  • Guest: @ nicholasi: F*ck off, jew-hater.

"COMMON SENSE"

SO-CALLED "COMMON SENSE" ABOUT SO-CALLED "COMMON SENSE"

We at What Do You Believe? never imagined we'd be reproducing articles from The Kike's Cracked Magazine, but since most of it could have been scammed off of articles we have written over the years about Don Ernesto, Glibertarians, Merkun Patriotards and suchlike (it's like shooting fish in a barrel), we hereby present some kike disinfo that gores a few oxes (in a kike-context, of course), but fails to mention 卍, ☭, ✝, ✡, ☪, or "The Statue of Liberty", or MLK, or Malcolm X, or George Washington or "Honest Abe".

Notice how they "attack" various icons of kiked Merkunz and the kiked Left and the kiked Right by pointing out how various people and concepts established in the kike system as heroes or heroic, are in fact ... evil and/or stoopid because they were/are Christian and/or ... RAYSISS (i.e., White).

8 Historic Symbols That Mean The Opposite of What You Think

[From The Kike's Cracked Magazine]

Kike Cracked 06

#8. Guy Fawkes

Misunderstood By: Anarchists, 4Chan.

Despite anarchists' general failure to unite long enough to make any meaningful progress against their ideological enemies (democracy, capitalism, communism and Internet forum moderationism), they do have a few running themes and symbols in common. One of the most prominent symbols is the 17th century English revolutionary, Guy Fawkes, whose famed exploit was his attempt to blow up Parliament in order to destabilize the British government.

The comparison is probably most recognizable to popular culture as the basis of the graphic novel/box office catastrophe V For Vendetta, in which a dude dresses up like Fawkes and brings down an evil dystopian theocracy. In recent years, through some bizarre online game of Chinese whispers, Fawkes has also come to somehow represent Internet teenagers' struggle against Scientology.

While anarchists may be right that Fawkes was the only person ever to enter Parliament with honest intentions, they've forgotten what those intentions were. Fawkes wasn't trying to destroy an evil theocracy, he was trying to install one.

Kike Cracked 01

Fawkes' face of freedom.

Fawkes was a fighter for Spain and the Catholic Church. His goal was to end the slightly more egalitarian Protestant revolution in England by restoring Catholic domination. If the Gunpowder Plot had actually succeeded, Britain would probably look less like an anarchist commune and more like the fascist police state Alan Moore warned us about.

#7. The Inverted Cross

Misunderstood By: Satanists, heavy metal bands.

Modern Satanism walks the narrow line between bona fide religion and juvenile attention-seeking farce; like the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, but with a lot more chains, hair dye and self-mutilation. Generally intended as a giant middle-finger to Christianity, Satanists deliberately adorn themselves with symbols that they think will inspire random people to try to give them a stern talking to.

Kike Cracked 02

One of the most popular Satanist symbols is the upside down cross, the reasoning behind which seems obvious enough. With the possible exception of that pentagram thing with the goat's head inside it, the inverted cross is the most immediately recognizable symbol of defiance against Christianity. It's certainly the easiest to tattoo onto your own face.

That's pretty hardcore. But there's only one man on Earth who is death metal enough to have an inverted cross carved into his own throne.

Kike Cracked 03

Whoa, wait a second...

If those Satanists had paid attention in Sunday school, they would probably realize that the inverted cross is actually the personal trademark of Saint Peter, the first Pope, and one of the most revered figures in Catholic lore. When Peter was martyred by crucifixion he was said to have requested to be crucified upside down because he didn't feel worthy of dying the same way as Jesus. As a result, many dyed-in-the-wool Catholics actually consider the inverted cross to be a more acceptable thing to attach to your tacky jewelry than a regular right-way-up one.

"I'm more metal than you, Satanists!" - last words of St. Peter [apocryphal].

By wearing an upside-down cross, Satanists are unwittingly showing humility and unworthiness before Christ. That makes about as much sense as a neo-Nazi sticking it to the Jews by swearing off pork for life. ["Christian Identity"?] Take that!

#6. Che Guevara

Misunderstood By: Leftists and socialists.

Go to any college campus and you'll find plenty of Che Guevara T-shirts amongst the student body, especially in the social sciences department. Ask a cultural studies major with a minor in White Guilt about Che and you'll hear how he was an anti-imperialist hero. Ask them about Che's time in Congo and you'll probably get a blank stare.

While the Motorcycle Diaries and other pop culture representations have covered Guevara's early life and the Cuban revolution, it wasn't until 2001 that Cuba finally released for publication The African Dream, Che Guevara's diary of his failed attempt to export the Cuban style revolution outside of Latin America. Che's Congo adventure, which he himself called an "unmitigated disaster," was the tragic result of his attempt to force Cuba onto places that aren't Cuba.

Che sauntered into Africa after the assassination of Congolese independence leader Patrice Lumumba. Using the political tragedy as a rallying point, he hoped to launch a people's revolution. By "people," we mean "Che Guevara's people," because although the local rebel leaders considered him a white guy and didn't take well to him barking orders, Che insisted on leading the project with a bunch of his own Cuban mercenaries. His lack of faith in the Congolese people being able to learn how to operate guns makes scholars think he just "sounds pretty much like an old-fashioned racist."

[To be fair to the old bastard, he was after all dealing with the scummiest sort of low-life Negroes in Africa -- the kind who would be drawn to an enterprise in which they hoped to rape and loot while mouthing kike revjewlutionary slogans. "Che" in Africa, not quoted by The Kike's Cracked: This is the history of a failure" ... "Given the prevailing lack of discipline, it would have been impossible to use Congolese machine-gunners to defend the base from air attack: they did not know how to handle their weapons and did not want to learn." ... "The basic feature of the People’s Liberation Army was that it was a parasitic army; it did not work, did not train, did not fight and demanded provisions and labour from the population, sometimes with extreme harshness." ... "The big shots spent the day drinking until they got into the most incredible state, without even bothering to conceal it from the population because they considered it the natural thing for 'men' to do." ... "Each morning we were given the same old tune: Kabila has not arrived today, but certainly tomorrow, or the day after tomorrow.... Boats kept arriving with plenty of high-quality weapons; it was pitiful to see how they squandered the resources of friendly countries (mainly China and the Soviet Union), the efforts of Tanzania, and the lives of some fighters and civilians, all to so little effect." -- Don Ernesto "Che" also said that the highest aspiration a man can have is to become a functioning cog in the manufactury of consumer goods, and that the most important thing in life is to hate.]

But he looks so open-minded on those T-shirts!

Ernesto 'Che' Guevara & Kim Il-Sung in Kimilsung-Gook

#5. Thomas Paine

Misunderstood By: Libertarians, Glenn Beck.

Glenn Beck has recently found a soul mate in Thomas Paine, the Founding Father known for his Revolutionary War tract Common Sense. So much so that he's gone so far as to rewrite Common Sense for the modern era, essentially stuffing words hand over fist into the mouth of a centuries-dead political philosopher for the soul-shriveling disgust Beck knows Paine would feel about Barack Obama.

Libertarians and tea partiers are so enamored by their new ideological BFF that they've taken to dressing up like him on YouTube and spouting off about the evils of taxation, weak foreign policy and too many brown people.

But Beck and his minions could probably benefit from actually reading some Thomas Paine. The guy whose 17th century ghost waxes emotional about 9/11 and congressional pay raises on the Internet is also responsible for these ideas:

"Pay as a remission of taxes to every poor family, out of the surplus taxes, and in room of poor-rates, four pounds a year for every child under fourteen years of age." -- Thomas Paine, The Rights of Man.

Huh, that sounds like the child tax credit created under the Balanced Budget Act of 1997, signed by . . . Bill Clinton.

"It is painful to see old age working itself to death, in what are called civilised countries, for daily bread... pay to every such person of the age of fifty years ... the sum of six pounds per annum out of the surplus taxes, and ten pounds per annum during life after the age of sixty... This support, as already remarked, is not of the nature of a charity but of a right." -- Thomas Paine, The Rights of Man.

An entitlement paying old people to support them for not working? That sounds like Social Security, passed by . . . FDR.

"There could be no such thing as landed property originally. Man did not make the earth, and, though he had a natural right to occupy it, he had no right to locate as his property in perpetuity any part of it." Thomas Paine, Agrarian Justice.

It almost sounds like he's about to say we should all share in the wealth or somethi-

"Create a national fund, out of which there shall be paid to every person, when arrived at the age of twenty-one years, the sum of fifteen pounds sterling, as a compensation in part, for the loss of his or her natural inheritance, by the introduction of the system of landed property." Thomas Paine, Agrarian Justice.

Holy shit! That sounds a lot like . . . Marx, Engels, Lenin and Stalin.

#4. The Alamo

Misunderstood By: Texans, underdogs everywhere.

The Alamo was the site of the last stand of several influential American frontiersmen like David Crockett and Jim Bowie, against an overwhelming force of Mexican Troops. Though a loss for Texas, it inspired the revolution that finally led to their glorious independence.

As the Alamo's website puts it, "People worldwide continue to remember the Alamo as a heroic struggle against impossible odds - a place where men made the ultimate sacrifice for freedom." And what a freedom it was! Except for the 5,000 or so slaves who could now legally be declared personal property.

People who say "Remember the Alamo" conveniently neglect to remember that a considerable factor in the Texas Revolution was that dastardly Mexico decided to outlaw slavery, and that didn't wash well with the American slave-owning population [and what percentage of Americans owned slaves? Would 'one percent' be a high exaggeration?] many Americans, who needed them black folk to pick their cotton while they laid back on the porch sipping margaritas from coconut halves.

Hell, if you want an inspirational symbol for standing up for freedom against overwhelming odds, how about John Brown's Raid on Harpers Ferry? John Brown was a radical militant abolitionist who launched a real last stand for liberty in 1859. Taking along 20 other men, including freed slaves, he raided the federal arsenal at Harper's Ferry. By seizing the nation's supply of guns and ammunition, he hoped to initiate a slave revolt and uprising. As seen here:

Kike Cracked 08

Despite evidently being 12-feet tall and made of bronze, Brown's mission failed and he was later executed for treason, becoming a symbol and martyr for the struggle against slavery.
While we're on Texas...

#3. The Slogan "Don't Mess With Texas"

Misunderstood By: Texans anywhere outside of Texas.

We've all been there: One night you're sitting at the bar getting trashed and trying to make eyes with a hot blonde at the pool table when you're interrupted by a guy who, despite the fact that this is New Jersey, is dressed in boots with spurs, leather chaps and a cowboy hat.

He saddles up to the bar, orders some obscure Texas beer he knows they don't have, and settles for a Bud Light. You try to ignore him, but he insists on striking up a one-way conservation about his life in Texas and how great the state is. By now that hot blonde has already left the bar, while the unaware Texan tells a story about the Texas Rangers and ends the story saying, "That's why we say 'Don't Mess with Texas'!"

While he thinks he sounds badass spitting out that tired line, the fact of the matter is he might as well be saying, "Give a Hoot, Don't Pollute."

The phrase Don't Mess With Texas is trademarked by the Texas Department of Transportation as part of their anti-littering campaign started in 1986. If anything, that proves that the only people intimidated by that phrase are Texans, thanks to the Department of Transportation's first strike penalty of sending a litterbag to the offenders.

Kike Cracked 04

And, while Texans hope the rest of the world doesn't know about the origins of the phrase, there are a few who remember the last time someone actually messed with Texas, which was the Union in the Civil War. Texas was on the losing side and fell without having many significant battles or any Union troops in Texas at the time of surrender.

#2. The Slogan "40 Acres and a Mule"

Misunderstood By: Activists for Reparations.

You've surely run into this phrase somewhere, depending on what type of activists you hang around and what rap songs you listen to. For instance 40 Acres & A Mule is the name of Spike Lee's production company and record label, and the phrase turns up in songs by Kanye West, Nelly and countless others.

It's a well-worn symbol of America's struggle with racism--the broken promise by the U.S. government to issue freed African slaves each 40 acres of land and a mule after the Civil War. The idea is that 150 years after the end of slavery, African Americans are still waiting for that goddamn mule. [So give them their mules and cut off all other handouts. The mess in the streets as the mules wander around under they starve or are killed would be barely noticeable in the midst of The "Dey Dun Cut Off Ma Welfare" Race Riots.]

What many don't realize is that, rather than some unfulfilled land/mule redistribution program to make up for that whole slavery thing, "40 Acres and a Mule" was really just a temporary solution by a single military general who wanted some way to get all these freeloading black people off his back.

While General William Tecumseh Sherman's war tactic of simply marching across the continent and destroying everything he saw was pretty effective in shutting down the South's ability to supply itself, it also left a lot of freed slaves standing around smoldering ruins and wondering how they were going to eat.

As a result, many slaves had no choice but to follow the army. The logistics of supplying and protecting a large number of freed slaves was slowing Sherman down and cramping his style, so he hatched a plan to provide them all with 40 acres worth of whatever land wasn't apocalyptically devastated by his passage. This also doubled as an ample opportunity to get rid of his excess mules. Unfortunately, this was just a wartime measure--after all is said and done, taking people's property and handing it to other people is still unconstitutional.

The closest thing to an official free land program that freed slaves were really offered was the Homestead Act, which gave away 160 acres of federal land to anyone willing to improve it. (The number of mules was never officially specified.) Of course, they had to steal this land from the Native Americans first.

#1. Chief Crazy Horse

Misunderstood By: Clueless white people

To their credit, white Americans really want to make reparations to the Native American people for that whole attempted genocide thing. One of the most potent symbols of our bourgeoning friendship with the First Americans is that of Sioux chief Crazy Horse, the Native Americans' greatest badass. So progressive is this message that a project is underway in South Dakota to carve an entire mountain into his likeness, so ridiculously huge that it's less than halfway finished after 60 years of work.

Kike Cracked 05

Erosion works faster.

While their hearts are in the right place, the irony is that the statue, conceived by Polish American sculptor Korczak Ziolkowski, was intended as a response to controversy surrounding his other great sculpting project: Mount Rushmore. It kind of misses the point about why defacing mountains in the middle of sacred Native American territory is a bad idea. [I wonder if the US federal gummint has a list of American "Scared Territory". There'd be Masonic temples (esp. the big one in D.C.), The Kikomasonic French Statue of Gliberty with Kike Lazrus-poen attached, all that freaky Masonic trash in D.C., the idolatrous giant statues of Lincoln etc., the spot where Martin Luther King was shot ("out, out, damn spot!), the spot were Sayn't Trayvon of Skittles was shot ... and this thing:]

Kike Cracked 07

Carving shit up isn't solution to all of life's problems.

Unlike us Euro-Americans, who think out national heritage sites like Gettysburg can be made better by putting a Wal-Mart next to them, Native Americans are pretty satisfied leaving holy-enough alone. As Native American actor and activist Russell Means [Injun terr'ist and Hollyjewed icon who kicked the bucket last week, not having lived long enough to see forked-tongue Whitey become a minority in the US of A] said in an interview: "Imagine going to the holy land in Israel, whether you're a Christian or a Jew or a Muslim, and start carving up the mountain of Zion. It's an insult to our entire being."

But that wouldn't have stopped Ziolkowski.

The real kicker is that Crazy Horse refused to be photographed in his life, and was so adamant about it that no images of him are believed to exist. So, carving a 563-foot tall sculpture of him that dominates the Great Plains actually kind of serves as the most elaborate "fuck you" ever conceived by mankind. [What about the LOLoco$t Memorial in Berlin?]
