Ave Imperium!

Nguyen Chi Thien at Ba Sao Prison, July, 1991. Photo taken in the office
of the Chief of Security. After eight years of solitary darkness the poet
is still unwilling to swear allegiance to Communism. He won the battle
of will with the power of his mind. Chi Thien predicted the fall of
communism in Russia that occurred the following month. He also
predicted, in his poetry, the need for Vietnamese people to "make of
themselves a raft" and leave their homeland in order to survive.


During World War II, recalls Molly Worthen of The New Republic, those who refused to recognize the State as their liege attracted the eager attention of pious souls willing to correct their thinking:

"Violence against Jehovah’s Witnesses [who reject oaths of allegiance to any government] erupted in hundreds of towns across the nation. In Wyoming, a mob tarred and feathered a Witness. Public officials permitted beatings in Texas and Illinois; in Nebraska, self-appointed patriots castrated another."

The Lights Are Going Out All Over Europe

Geert Wilders trial, part 2
Gates of Vienna

Below is the speech given by Geert Wilders on the opening day of his new trial on “hate speech” charges in Amsterdam. Many thanks to Vlaamse Leeuwin for the translation:

The lights are going out all over Europe. All over the continent where our culture flourished and where man created freedom, prosperity and civilization. The foundation of the West is under attack everywhere.

All over Europe the elites are acting as the protectors of an ideology that has been bent on destroying us for fourteen centuries. An ideology that has sprung from the desert and that can produce only deserts because it does not give people freedom. The Islamic Mozart, the Islamic Gerard Reve [a Dutch author], the Islamic Bill Gates; they do not exist because without freedom there is no creativity. The ideology of Islam is especially noted for killing and oppression and can only produce societies that are backward and impoverished. Surprisingly, the elites do not want to hear any criticism of this ideology.

My trial is not an isolated incident. Only fools believe it is. All over Europe multicultural elites are waging total war against their populations. Their goal is to continue the strategy of mass immigration, which will ultimately result in an Islamic Europe — a Europe without freedom: Eurabia.

The lights are going out all over Europe. Anyone who thinks or speaks individually is at risk. Freedom-loving citizens who criticize Islam, or even merely suggest that there is a relationship between Islam and crime or honour killing, must suffer, and are threatened or criminalized. Those who speak the truth are in danger.

The lights are going out allover Europe. Everywhere the Orwellian thought police are at work, on the lookout for thought crimes everywhere, casting the populace back within the confines where it is allowed to think.

This trial is not about me. It is about something much greater. Freedom of speech is not the property of those who happen to belong to the elites of a country. It is an inalienable right, the birthright of our people. For centuries battles have been fought for it, and now it is being sacrificed to please a totalitarian ideology.

Future generations will look back at this trial and wonder who was right. Who defended freedom and who wanted to get rid of it.

The lights are going out all over Europe. Our freedom is being restricted everywhere, so I repeat what I said here last year:

It is not only the privilege, but also the duty of free people — and hence also my duty as a member of the Dutch Parliament — to speak out against any ideology that threatens freedom. Hence it is a right and a duty to speak the truth about the evil ideology that is called Islam. I hope that freedom of speech will emerge triumphant from this trial. I hope not only that I shall be acquitted, but especially that freedom of speech will continue to exist in the Netherlands and in Europe.

Pulling Back The Egyptian Veil

That's tens of thousands in a country of eighty million. A whole 0.01% percent of the country has shown up. Which means that Mubarak must go! Right now! No elections needed.

Now the Tea Party has put a lot more people than that into the streets to rally against Obama. Nationalist rallies in Israel have hit the hundreds of thousands, in a country with only a few million of people. But the media has never called them "huge" or treated them as an absolute mandate for change.

Every idiotic article billing this as a democratic transition is a pathetic joke. This is not a democratic transition. This is a manufactured revolution. Food riots co-opted by a student protest movement funded and organized by Soros' people and then co-opted again by the Islamists.

The media narrative is that ElBaradei is the head of a non-violent protest movement and Mubarak is a repressive dictator. But there a couple of problems with that narrative.

ElBaradei sounds a lot more violent than Mubarak. He keeps screaming about blood. Saying that Mubarak is "A Dead Man Walking" is on the grim side too. Uglier than any public statements Mubarak made"

Chrysler 2011 Super Bowl Commercial Mashup

With the condescension, snobbery, preaching, choir wailing, and finger pointing of no less than Eminem, I just thought that this commercial deserved to be mashed up. Especially since my taxes paid for Chrysler (twice) and this commercial.

ObamaCare Repeal: Harry Reid Confronted In Gourmet Market

"U.S. Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) may never go grocery shopping for his wife again.
While shopping this past Saturday afternoon amongst the food aisles at his local gourmet grocer in McLean, Virginia, Sen. Reid came across a fellow shopper who recognized him and asked a question that the senior senator from Nevada plainly did not want to answer."

President Adams On State And Federal Relations

Newly sworn-in President Quincy Adams knew the firm basis of our governmental system was a federal agent restrained within the prescribed limits of it delegated powers, and the preeminent authority of the member States.

Bernhard Thuersam, Director
Cape Fear Historical Institute
President Adams on State and Federal Relations:

“Ten years of peace, at home and abroad, have assuaged the animosities of political contention, and blended into harmony the most discordant elements of public opinion. There still remains one effort of magnanimity, one sacrifice if prejudice and passion, to be made by the individuals throughout the nation, who have heretofore followed the standard of political party.

It is that of discarding every remnant of rancor against each other; of embracing, as countrymen and friends, and yielding to talents and virtue alone, that confidence which, in times of contention for principle, was bestowed only upon those who wore the badge of party communion. The collisions of party spirit…which are founded on geographical divisions, adverse interests of soil, climate, and modes of domestic life, are more permanent, and therefore perhaps more dangerous. It holds out to us a perpetual admonition to preserve alike, and with equal anxiety, the rights of each individual State in its own government, and the rights of the whole nation in that of the Union.

Whatsoever is of domestic concernment, unconnected with the other members of the Union, or with foreign lands, belongs exclusively to the administration of State governments. Whatsoever directly involves the rights and interests of the federative fraternity, or foreign powers, is of the resort of the general government. To respect the rights of the State governments’, is the inviolable duty of that of the Union; the government of every State will feel its own obligation to respect and preserve the rights of the whole.

The harmony of the nation is promoted, and the whole Union is knit together, by the sentiments of mutual respect, the habits of social intercourse, and the ties of personal friendship, formed between the representatives of its several parts, in the performance of their service at this metropolis.”

(Inaugural Address of President John Quincy Adams, March 4, 1825 (excerpt), The Speeches, Addresses and Messages of the Several Presidents of the United States, Robert DeSilver, Publisher, 1825, pp. 532-533)

Planned Parenthood: Even Teen Hookers Need Abortions

Planned Parenthood wants you to know that making this planet a little less populous is everyone's concern - like Global Warming* - let's get behind heroes of Eugenics like these great fellows!
Soros' Media Matters: Right-wing groups are once again attempting to destroy an organization dedicated to providing crucial primary care services to Americans that need them most..."

By "crucial primary care services," I assume they mean instructing 14-year-old prostitutes which sex acts they can perform after abortions?

Our Promise To The Nation

“Imagine a Country dedicated to ensuring that the culture, tradition & people of its own nation remain intact for future generations – Imagine a British National Party Government”
-- Arthur Kemp
At 2:30 he begins comparing what would happen if the native English decided to move to any Muslim country demanding their British ways. An excellent presentation. BT

American Renaissance Speakers Recorded

"The international speakers at the conference emphasized a difference between integration and assimilation. Some saw assimilation as the necessary answer. Others saw deportation as the inevitable solution. No one mentioned war, of course, other than the avowed war-mongers of Islam. Islam is all about war. Its leaders preach nothing else. Of course, that is emotional
terrorism. The Muslim leaders know that reproduction and ‘people numbers’ are the real force behind their international onslaught for Allah. Mass immigration and mindless reproduction are their means. Terrorism is a mere tool. The heathen world knows numbers, and numbers only. It is not an intellectual world. It is a sensual world. The heathen world is about quanity, not quality. Communism is about quantity. Equality, in Communism, is about material measurement. Communism is absolute, glodless heathenism."

Obama Eats Crow


--Quintan Ana Wikswo


"It's the same old, same old," says the White House source. "Tax cuts, credits, trade agreements, stuff that our base of support wants nothing to do with. I don't really think people at the Chamber realize just how reviled they are over here. And it's killing us that our guy has do this."

Oppose Proposed Restrictions On The 2nd Amendment

Oppose Proposed Restrictions on the 2nd Amendment

The animosity shown the Second Amendment by the media and many of our elected representatives sworn to uphold the Constitution and the Bill of Rights is never so apparent as when a particularly heinous criminal shooting occurs. These tragedies are immediately seized upon as a springboard for introducing more gun control measures, which are usually circumventions of the Second Amendment in intent and practice, and therefore unconstitutional.

Another misguided “close the loopholes” for guns measure has been introduced by Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D.-N.Y.) and 57 Democrat cosponsors. Her bill H. R. 308, “To prohibit the transfer or possession of large capacity ammunition feeding devices, and for other purposes,” is officially entitled the “Large Capacity Feeding Device Act.” H.R. 308 would restrict -- criminalize, actually -- the transfer and possession by law-abiding citizens of large capacity feeding devices, more commonly known as magazines, that accept more than 10 rounds of ammunition. There are frightening exceptions, however, regarding ownership; clearly the advantage in firepower -- in terms of speed of firing and number of rounds delivered in a given time -- is being reserved to the government, its officials and agents.

The provisions of H.R. 308 are said to be grandfathered, applying to devices purchased or transferred only from the date of enactment of the bill, if passed. However, according to some gun legislation analysts, the grandfathering is meaningless in this case because of other overriding language in the measure. Just for possessing a “large capacity ammunition feeding device,” one could be arrested and charged. The burden of proof that one owned the device prior to the ban would be forced upon the innocent citizen as he was dragged through the courts. Proving its manufacturing date would be useless. Any ruling in the matter would be at the discretion of the authorities. Penalties for infractions of H.R. 308 would be 10 years in a federal prison and an undesignated monetary fine. Basically, H.R. 308 would criminalize anyone in possession of a magazine holding 11 rounds or more.

It is unconstitutional to infringe on our natural right to bear arms guaranteed under the Second Amendment by incrementally restricting it, just as it would be unconstitutional to incrementally restrict the rights of free speech, religious belief and practice, and privacy. There is no authorization in the Constitution for incrementally restricting any of our rights as guaranteed by the Constitution.

H.R. 308 is but one more step toward eventual, total elimination of our right to keep and bear arms. Contact your Representative and Senators and insist that they support and defend our right to keep and bear arms, in toto.

The Life Of General Vang Pao, Hmong Guerrilla Leade

The Life Of General Vang Pao, Hmong Guerrilla Leader

As a teenager in World War II, Vang Pao fought the Japanese, who were attempting to take over Laos.

In the 1950s, he joined the French in the war against the North Vietnamese who were dominating Laos and later worked with the CIA to wage a covert war there.

Former CIA Chief William Colby once called Pao "the biggest hero of the Vietnam War," for the 15 years he spent heading a CIA-sponsored guerrilla army fighting against a communist takeover of the Southeast Asian peninsula.

"Vang Pao led Hmong guerrillas in a CIA-backed battle against communists in Laos and was credited with resettling tens of thousands of Hmong in American cities."

Muslim Brotherhood Plan For Egypt

"If the present Congress errs in too much talking, how can it be otherwise in a body to which the people send 150 lawyers, whose trade it is to question everything, yield nothing, & talk by the hour? That 150 lawyers should do business together ought not to be expected."
--Thomas Jefferson, Autobiography, 1821


"The Muslim Brotherhood has taken a greater role in organizing the protest against the Egyptian regime as it unfolds its independent political agenda. Rashad al-Bayumi, the Brotherhood's second-in-command, announced in an interview with Japanese TV that the group would join a transitional government in order to cancel the peace treaty between Egypt and Israel, as it "offends the Arabs' dignity and destroys the interests of Egypt and other Arab states."

Harald Nugiseks

Harald Nugiseks, estonian Knight's Cross holder

SS-Oberscharführer HARALD NUGISEKS, born October 22, 1921, Knight's Cross holder from Estonia. Kept in Soviet captivity until 1958.

Very interesting and unusual history. It appears he is still alive. Alfons Rebane's story *below is equally so. Estonians joined the German army after Russia was forcefully expelled from their lands by the Nazis and were, like some other main force SS units, pure fighting machines guilty of no atrocities.The Estonian SS was cleared of all charges. The Website dedicated to Harald Nugiseks is tedious going with Google translation, but worthwhile. Seems like this would make a good book. BT

Also: The Battle of Tannenberg Line

"Several Western scholars refer to the campaign as the Battle of the European SS for the 24 volunteer infantry battalions from Denmark, Estonia, East Prussia, Flanders, Flemings, Holland and Norway within the Waffen-SS. Roughly a half of the infantry consisted of the local Estonian conscripts motivated to resist the looming Soviet re-occupation. The German force of 22,250 men held off the Soviet advance of 136,830 troops. As the Soviet forces were constantly reinforced, the casualties of the battle were 150,000–200,000 wounded and dead Soviet troops and 157–164 Soviet tanks."
"The various repressive activities of Soviet forces in 1940–1941 and after reoccupation sparked a guerrilla war against the Soviet authorities in Estonia which was waged into the early 1950s by "Forest Brothers" (metsavennad) consisting mostly of Estonian veterans of both the German and Finnish armies as well as some civilians."
"One of the four Estonian soldiers who received the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross.

During the Soviet assault on Estonia in September 1944, Nugiseks's home was destroyed. Nugiseks was captured by Czech partisans in May 1945 and put in a POW camp.

After 3 unsuccessful escape attempts, Nugiseks served time after being handed over to the Soviets, who handed him 10 years in the Gulag and 5 years deportation in Siberia. Nugiseks managed to return to Estonia, where he worked until retirement.

In 1970s Nugiseks built a house for his family with his own hands.

As a result of his service to his country, in 1992 Nugiseks was made a Captain of the Estonian Army.

Nugiseks attended another Estonian Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross holder, *Alfons Rebane's reburial in Estonia in 1999 by the Estonian government.

In October 2008, he was awarded with Medal of Gratitude by Estonian people, after collecting of 4229 signatures." MORE.

*Waffen SS Standartenführer Alfons Vilhelm Robert Rebane (1908 – 1976). Rebane translates to "fox" in Estonian. He was the most highly decorated Estonian military officer in the course of the Second World War. Rebane was nicknamed "Estonian Rommel" for his leadership and tactical skills. He was awarded the Knight's Cross with Oakleaves for extreme bravery in the battlefield. Rebane was one of the only two non-Germans awarded the oak leaves.
