Ruined – part 3

There’s two entries below about Donald Trump’s comment about craphole Africa. Why not? The second one, though, by Daniel Dale, adds some further interesting details illuminating the very ruined mind of this stinking swamp muck of a president.

“Swedish Church Declares Jesus Christ ‘Gender Neutral’” by Ian Miles Cheong

An excerpt from the above linked-to article follows:

=== =
Back in November, the radical progressive activists finally managed to change clergy instructions for a Swedish Church, which will now advise officials to avoid terms like ‘Lord’ and ‘He’ when mentioning God or Jesus during church services.

Since then, a new politically correct religious guide has been issued on ‘how to conduct church services.’

Church official and feminist Susann Senter claims that making Jesus gender neutral is OK because some historical art depictions of “Jesus are quite feminine.”
= ===

Jesus and Jehovah may not be males the way human beings are, but I think the issue is How do they represent themselves to us? That should determine how we view them. But as usual, in a world which ‘uses’ God, God’s wishes and standards are of no concern. And am I wrong, or don’t most people by now know that Jesus wasn’t born on December 25th? Sheesh! Follow the blind guides if you must.

Ahed Tamimi

“Ahed Tamimi’s arrest sheds a disturbing light on how children are targeted by Israel” by Jonathan Cook

An excerpt from the above linked-to article follows:

Sixteen-year-old Ahed Tamimi may not be what Israelis had in mind when, over many years, they criticised Palestinians for not producing a Mahatma Gandhi or Nelson Mandela…

She was charged last week with assault and incitement after she slapped two heavily armed Israeli soldiers as they refused to leave the courtyard of her family home in the West Bank village of Nabi Saleh, near Ramallah. Her mother, Nariman, is in detention for filming the incident. The video quickly went viral.

Ahed lashed out shortly after soldiers nearby shot her 15-year-old cousin in the face, seriously injuring him…

The video of Ahed, screened repeatedly on Israeli TV, has threatened to upturn Israel’s self-image as David fighting an Arab Goliath…

Predictably, Israeli politicians were incensed…

But more troubling is a media debate that has characterised the soldiers’ failure to beat Ahed in response to her slaps as a “national shame”.

The revered television host Yaron London expressed astonishment that the soldiers “refrained from using their weapons” against her, wondering whether they “hesitated out of cowardice”.

But far more sinister were the threats from Ben Caspit, a leading Israeli analyst. In a column, he said Ahed’s actions made “every Israeli’s blood boil”. He proposed subjecting her to retribution “in the dark, without witnesses and cameras”, adding that his own form of revenge would lead to his certain detention.

That fantasy – of cold-bloodedly violating an incarcerated child – should have sickened every Israeli. And yet Mr Caspit is still safely ensconced in his job.

Most of Israeli society is ruined and ready for Armageddon.

“German teens enlist in record numbers thanks to social media drive” by RT News

An excerpt from the above linked-to report follows:

Germany now has a record number of children registering to join its army following an intensive social media campaign. More than 2,000 soldiers under the age of 18 served in 2017, according to new figures.

The news has led to renewed calls for the practice to be abolished…

Left Party MP Evrin Sommer, who was behind the information request, told the Rheinische Post (RP) that Germany has no moral authority to criticize the use of child soldiers…

[Martin] Dolzer, a lawmaker from Hamburg, argued that the reason the army remains unattractive in the eyes of the general public, despite all its publicity campaigns, is that Germany’s foreign policy is “not peaceful enough.”

“The main problem is that if you do a foreign policy which is based on dialog you don’t need such a strong army or so many soldiers. I think this is the main problem behind it,” Dolzer told RT, noting that those who do opt for the army service in Germany mostly come from unprivileged backgrounds, being unable to find a job elsewhere or go to a university.

Well, If it’s true that much of the general public is uninterested in joining the military because Germany’s foreign policy is war-minded, that’s good. That’s the opposite of ruin. But is it true? Or is it the case that Germans, who live in a first world society and are not being bombed or starved to death and can even enjoy themselves just don’t want to be a part of the dangerous, un-fun war-making they see their government doing on a regular basis?

If the latter is the case, then the war-minded – especially now that that’s the EU’s main focus – German ruling class needs to bamboozle easier to bamboozle German minds. And that means targetting kids via social networking. How many of the adults who get that war isn’t fun have kids? Because, While they may see fighting as no fun, they have failed to educate their children, by the look of it (which doesn’t prevent kids from caring, which we see, on a small scale, even in Israel). Handing them over to the police state for education doesn’t cut it. Adults failing to educate themselves, via active learning (that sets aside establishment media and the captured educational system) means, also, that such parents wouldn’t even have the ability to educate their children. They don’t even know that they and their children are uneducated! Which is another way of saying that many Germans just don’t care. Caring is knowing. When you care, you put your head up and look around you. You don’t ask for permission to do so. And you do that because you love your family and want to know what dangers are out there so that you can protect them. Looking is seeing is knowing. Hopefully, Those looking can recognize the dangers to their family’s spiritual and mental health that lie in wait. Social networking for example, is not all about fun and sharing pictures of good times, as Stephen Gowans and others have explained.

Ahed Tamimi confronts an Israeli soldier

“Michael Oren says Palestinian activists stage ‘kids in American clothes’ to provoke Israeli army” by Philip Weiss

An excerpt from the above linked-to article follows:

=== =
Last week, Mohammad Tamimi, 14, Ahed’s cousin, was shot in the face during a demonstration and left in a coma. Ahed is said to have responded to the shooting by slapping a soldier in this encounter with Israeli soldiers. The slapping incident was widely-circulated, and prompted calls in Israel for Ahed to be arrested, and evidently resulted in her arrest.

The case is sure to call more attention to Israel’s inhumane occupation and disgraceful and illegal treatment of children. Which is why–

Michael Oren, the former Israeli ambassador, tweeted today that the whole family is fake and the children are being dressed in American clothes, whatever that means, and paid to provoke the Israeli soldiers.

“Trump asks why U.S. would want immigrants from ‘shithole countries'” by Thomson Reuters

An excerpt from the above linked-to article follows:

In bluntly vulgar language, U.S. President Donald Trump questioned Thursday why the U.S. would accept more immigrants from Haiti and “shithole countries” in Africa rather than places like Norway, as he rejected a bipartisan immigration deal, according to people briefed on the extraordinary Oval Office conversation.

Trump’s contemptuous description of an entire continent startled lawmakers in the meeting and immediately revived charges that the president is racist. The White House did not deny his remark but…

“US Marines in hot water over pictures of ‘100s of naked recruits’ posted on secret FB page” by RT News

An excerpt from the above linked-to article follows:

The US Defense Department is investigating reports that dozens of US Marines shared “hundreds – possibly thousands” of naked photos of female recruits, veterans, and other women on a secret Facebook page, many of whom were unaware they had been photographed.

The photographs were reportedly shared on a page entitled ‘Marines United’, which boasted some 30,000 followers, triggering an avalanche of obscene comments, according to the Center for Investigative Reporting (CIR).

The closed Facebook group’s membership allegedly consisted of active-duty and retired male Marines, Navy personnel, and British Royal Marines…

CIR reports that, in one case, a female corporal pictured in uniform had been followed at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina by a fellow Marine who secretly photographed her. Rude comments reportedly burst through like a flood after the picture was posted to the ‘Marines United’ page.

One Facebook user allegedly wrote “Take her out back and pound her out,” adding “video it though… for science.”

Sen. Lynn Beyak was removed from the Conservative caucus because of letters posted to her Senate website supporting her earlier defence of the residential school system. (CBC)

“Sen. Lynn Beyak kicked out of Conservative caucus after refusing to remove ‘racist’ comments online” by Catharine Tunney & Joe Lofaro

An excerpt from the above linked-to article follows:

Sen. Lynn Beyak, known for defending residential schools as “well-intentioned,” has been kicked out of the Conservative caucus after she refused to remove “racist” comments posted to her Senate website.

Beyak had posted roughly 100 letters in support of her earlier defence of residential schools — where some 6,000 Indigenous children died from malnutrition and disease — to her Senate website.

It’s not a live Octopus but its freshly mutilated (animal not killed before its limbs lopped off) and the nerve endings are alive, causing the parts to squirm much to the delight of ruined minds.

“PETA complains about squirming octupus served at Toronto restaurants” by Lauren O’Neil

I don’t agree with PETA but I don’t completely disagree with them. God didn’t intend for humans to consume animals but allowed it after the flood. I believe that in the new world, maybe not right away – that world has to be built by us – but eventually, We will revert back to a plant diet. That’s only my belief though. That isn’t explicitly stated in the Christian Bible.

An excerpt from the above linked-to article follows:

Marado Sushi in Thornhill and Gal’s Sushi in Markham both feature a Korean octopus dish called sannakji on their menus…

“Only after chopping off each of the octopus’s tentacles—an act equivalent to chopping off a human being’s limbs—does the chef dice up the animal’s mantle, causing a slow, painful death,” it continues.

“The squirming tentacles—whose multiple nerve endings cause the animal to continue writhing—are then served to patrons…”

PETA says that this still “likely causes immense suffering” as chopping off an octopus’ head “does little to destroy the animal’s brain and organs.”

Are the octopus’s organs in its head? I really don’t know. But the basic point is good. To kill the animal, directly kill (not lop off) its head. Pierce it, I imagine. Maybe you can still rush out to the customers’ tables some squirming arms, for those who require their food to move.

“Quaker group honored by Yad Vashem for helping Jews during Holocaust is now banned from Israel” by Philip Weiss

An excerpt from the above linked-to article follows:

One of the special ironies of the weekend’s news that Israel is barring 20 international organizations from entry because they support BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) is the appearance on that list of the venerable American Friends Service Committee, or AFSC, which was founded 101 years ago as an antiwar organization.

AFSC earned distinction and a Nobel Prize for helping Jews and other refugees escape the Holocaust. Now it is on that list because it is helping Palestinians!

Is Israel ruined or what?!

“Congress in Search of a Bordello (Make The Chumps Pay the Bill)” by James Petras

An excerpt from the above linked-to article follows:

The US taxpayers were made to pay millions of dollars in financial settlements for hundreds of incidents of Congressperson abuse, including gross sexual harassment, against interns, staff and office employees, of both sexes. This ‘slush and shush’ fund was hidden from the American people. Many abused victims were paid-off and intimidated into silently watching the elected officials parade themselves as paragons of virtue and champions of their voters.

From The Toronto Star:
“If there were a definition of hell,” says Dr. Chetan Mehta, then the life of Sultan Khan was it. Mehta was Khan’s doctor for years and believes Ottawa behaved cruelly in rejecting Khan’s deathbed wish of seeing his son when it rejected the son’s visitor’s visa. (Andrew Francis Wallace)

“Sultan Khan’s dying wish was to see his son. But Canada denied the visitor’s visa” by Sandro Contenta

An excerpt from the above linked-to article follows:

[Sultan] Khan was a month away from his 63rd birthday. He died Oct. 15 of a broken body and a broken heart…

He came to Canada as a victim of torture in 1990 and led a marginalized existence of extreme pain and suffering. “If there is a definition of hell,” Mehta says, “this guy’s life was it.”

He had no relatives in Canada. His dying wish — to see his son from Pakistan — was dashed when the son’s request for a visitor’s visa was denied, despite the support of Khan’s doctors, social workers and a local Liberal MP, Julie Dzerowicz. Dzerowicz has backed “multiple” applications for similar emergency visas from her Davenport constituents in the past two years.

Khan’s lonely death is not unique.

An agency that provides palliative care to marginalized Toronto residents, known by the acronym PEACH, has witnessed other patients condemned to face death without loved ones because of visa rejections. And Dzerowicz, who represents a riding where almost half of residents are foreign-born, is calling for a federal policy that facilitates such compassion-based visas.

Good luck Julie Dzerowitz. The Liberal Party’s compassion (as is that of the other major parties) is with people like the Ukrainian Nazis murdering their fellow Ukrainians or mining, oil and gas company execs poisoning Canadians or the well being of tax-evading corporations, like Google. If you look at the article linked to there and scroll down to the comments, you’ll see I’ve added a few. One includes some links to info on Google’s tax evasion.

“Donald Trump tried to show you he’s sane and stable. His week became a running fiasco” by Daniel Dale

An excerpt from the above linked-to article follows:

An explosive new book had called into question his mental fitness, so the president had a showman’s brainwave. He would throw open the doors to a private meeting on immigration, letting television cameras capture him in command, at length, at his familiar spot at the centre of a boardroom table.

The plan didn’t go perfectly. Trump was vague and contradictory. He did not seem to understand policy terminology, much less policy itself…

Within 60 hours of the Trump’s self-described “performance” at the immigration meeting, the wheels had fallen off…

There was the racism: Trump set off yet another international incident with yet another bigoted remark about immigrants. At a White House meeting on Thursday, he asked why the U.S. needs to take immigrants from “shithole countries” like Haiti, El Salvador and African nations. Though he issued a vague and narrow Friday denial, saying he had not been derogatory toward Haitians, senators in attendance confirmed the reports were correct…

There was the narcissism: Trump spent a startlingly large chunk of a Wall Street Journal interview lavishing over-the-top praise on himself — hailing his intelligence (“I’m smarter than all of them put together”), business acumen (“I created maybe the greatest brand”), debating record (“I don’t think you’ll find one poll that I ever lost in any of the 14, 15 debates”), even his athletic prowess (“I was always the best athlete, people don’t know that”).

What do you get when your political, and other, leaders are ruined? It’s not pretty. There’s a mechanism (or whatever it is) that I call ‘mysterious lawlessness’. I take the phrase from the Christian Bible. It may mean something slightly different than what I mean. Mysterious lawlessness obtains when leaders, who are usually educated, smart (which may be relative) and expected to at least know the difference between right and wrong, regularly break rules, written and unwritten. The segment of the public lacking a moral foundation – principles – observing this will by mystified, or lost – because they lack a moral compass. And they will rightly, unfortunately, conclude that “Badness must sometimes be good.” And the darkness spreads.

As Jesus Christ said long ago: “If the light that is in you is in fact darkness, then how great that darkness is!” (Matthew 6:23)
