I'm the first one to admit that in the grand scheme, I really don't know anything. But here's the way I see it:
An incident such as just transpired in Paris has several elements to be scrutinized: motivation (such as, say, adherence to a violent ideology), facilitation (such as, say, how the killers were funded and/or armed), and provocation (such as, say, blowback, or retaliation to western foreign policy).
This list is by no means exhaustive; there are likely others, many others, but these are predominantly what I'm seeing discussed around the web.
But there's another, crucial element that I'm not seeing discussed so much, which is that of "enabling". The others I've mentioned above factor into the *launch* of such an attack, but *enabling* is what determines the *success* of the attack, once it is launched.
And what enabled the success of that attack—just as in many of the mass killings here in the US—was the people's ability (and right) to defend themselves being surrendered (forcibly or voluntarily) to the state, which is, in truth, entirely incapable of defending them.
So regardless of the *cause* or *reason* for the attack, the bottom line is, the *success* of the attack is attributed to one thing, and one thing only: a disarmed populace.
So we can debate the rest until we're all blue in the face, but until we establish (or return to) free societies—which would also be, by definition, armed societies—attacks such as these will continue, largely unabated.

Thought for the Day

Life is complex and there are no easy or simplistic answers. All paths include risks, and ultimately, all paths are determined by US. IF we are victims, we are our own oppressors. Our power cannot be taken, it can only be given. We cannot be forced to labor. It is a choice....maybe between that and starvation, but a choice just the same. Our world currently defines our values...plain and simple. When WE, acting as a collective, rather than being herded into one, decide liberty has value...warts and all, then only then, we will see it again.

America is a bomb....

The United States is in decline. While not all major shocks to the system will be devastating, when the right one comes along, the outcome may be dramatic.
Not all explosives are the same. We all know you have to be careful with dynamite. Best to handle it gently and not smoke while you’re around it.
Semtex is different. You can drop it. You can throw it. You can put it in the fire. Nothing will happen. Nothing until you put the right detonator in it, that is.
To me, the US and most of the supposedly free West, increasingly looks like a truck being systematically filled with Semtex.

Clowning Around

 Of the many accusations thrown at the Obama administration: Incompetence, Brilliant, Stupid, Evil, Clowns, “clowns” may be the most misleading.

The Obama administration is deadly serious. It’s made excellent progress on achieving all of its goals. Calling them clowns leads to a state of denial that (a) minimizes the significance of what they have accomplished, (b) underestimates their focus and discipline which is superb, and (c) distracts one from anticipating what they will do next.

Their methods are ingenious and should be carefully studied. They thoroughly abuse the pre-existing structures of responsible governance which creates an appearance of incompetence while completely undermining the institutions of the republic. When the structure cannot be abused, it is simply hollowed out (ICE). When the structure cannot be abused or eviscerated to accomplish a goal, it is ignored, and extra-legal and extra-governmental avenues are employed (a la Fast and Furious). With respect to the latter, I’m confident that for every F&F that has been uncovered, there are half a dozen operations like that have gone undiscovered thanks to a complete and utter absence of any investigative media outside of the blogosphere which is of course a marginal substitute for a professional media that does its job properly. Add to that, no reaction came from the BATFE until after the death of agent Brian Terry; F&F moved right along in its illegality until “one of their own” was killed. Then and only then did an appropriate reaction take place from agents, not the Administration and certainly not Atty Gen Holder.

Bureaucracies are amoral entities; they exist only to sustain themselves. The kind of people that are attracted to bureaucracy are motivated largely by two things: position, and pension. Taking a moral stand puts both of those objectives in mortal jeopardy; therefore, the bureaucrat becomes morally unreliable. An amoral entity staffed by morally unreliable actors is dependably immoral. Worse, the larger a bureaucracy gets, the less an individual bureaucrat can personally affect its course of action; an overwhelming sense of helplessness results, compounding the problem. When sociopaths and psychopaths get control of a bureaucracy, the worst happens. Given that today’s world is almost 100% controlled by giant corporate and government bureaucracies, can we be surprised at the results?

The Obama administration has been ingenious in thoroughly co-opting, undermining, subverting, or working around both governmental and corporate bureaucratic structures in order to perpetrate their schemes. They have accomplished this with minimal violence and disturbance, and even more remarkably, with hardly anyone really noticing how efficiently they’ve done their work. Violence and chaos will ensue, but largely after their work has been accomplished– which is a pretty remarkable way to run a revolution

Stop Complaining; Life Isn't Fair


We don’t need to wake people up. Enough people are already awake. What needs to happen now is that those people who are awake become motivated, determined and carry out their duty to act against the enemy. We don’t need more dispiriting, defeatist voices. We need voices that inspire and speak of the good and beautiful things like duty, heroism and sacrifice.
A lot of noise is made about the violent nature of Muslims and urban black culture. Whites think that pointing out that blacks are dysfunctional and commit a disproportionate amount of rape and violent crime is a victory of some sort. It’s not. It’s an admission of weakness. You’re admitting that blacks and Muslims ruin your countries and that you do nothing about it. That is weakness.
Stop signing useless petitions. Stop begging politicians to save you. Stop talking about how immigrants are living on your taxes. Stop talking about how immigrants are violent rapists. Stop obsessing about the differences between a migrant and a refugee. Stop talking about how blacks are the real racists. Stop talking like a victim. Life isn’t fair. Stop crying and do something about it.

On "running for President"

 "Who is best qualified to be President?"
How does one become "qualified" to oversee the coercive micromanaging of the lives of several hundred million people? One doesn't. Ever. Yet in the coming weeks you will hear all sorts of talking heads giving their asinine opinions about who is "qualified" to violently rule the world. Not only is it impossible for anyone to have the moral right to control millions of others, but the idea that some set of "qualifications" could make it a good idea to let someone make choices for everyone else is just stupid. For example, what does one have to do to be "qualified" to make all of YOUR choices for you, to run your life for you, and to hurt you if you don't cooperate? Is there some special college degree or work experience that equips someone for that?
