THE HUBRIS OF GEORGE SOROS

 https://www.wsj.com/articles/why-i-support-reform-prosecutors-law-enforces-jail-prison-crime-rate-justice-police-funding-11659277441



The article by George Soros is as inaccurate as it is self-congratulatory. The only thing missing apart from any caring reference to the victims of the crime wave he has financed is the implied belief that we should be grateful to him for his incessant, tinkering, blood-drenched, philanthropy and his ubiquitous subversion of law & order in America. He thinks he deserves a "Thank You" card.

Mr. Soros has never allowed his spirit to roam beyond his own self-interest, just ask the Bank of England. He lives safely sheltered and heavily protected from the ravages and destruction of the policies he constantly seeks to impose on others. A good deal of hypocrisy is required to turn his suppurating, self-justifying, hand-washing article into a plausible argument for criminal justice reform but hypocrisy is something Mr. Soros has in abundance. 

"Americans need a more thoughtful discussion about our response to crime", he tells us. Very well then, here it is: 

We want it stopped. We want more police officers better paid, better equipped and well-trained with stronger immunity from criminal prosecutions and civil lawsuits. We want vicious thugs, with criminal records so long they wouldn't fit onto the side of a bus, kept in jail until trial. We want the 45,000 gang members in L.A. County, count them, off the streets and if it takes the temporary suspension of the Posse Comitatus Act to do it we don't mind. We want the politicians and officials who have allowed this plague on our streets prosecuted and sent to the same prisons as the gang members. We want violent underage criminals tried as adults. We want drug dealers, not drug users, executed. It works well in Singapore.

Mr. Soros intones that, "We need to acknowledged that black people in the U.S. are five times likely to be sent to jail as white people." That would be unjust if they were committing the same crime but it implies that the police are out deliberately hunting down black people, trumping up charges and sending them off to jail because of their color. It's preposterous. 

How does he explain that 7,000 of our black citizens are murdered by other black citizens every year? How does he explain the 75% illegitimacy rate in the black community or its 300,000 abortions per year? COVID can't be blamed for everything. It's a national tragedy but decriminalizing crime and endangering public safety is not the solution to any of it.

Since the Civil Rights Act of 1964 opposed, by the way, by Democratic senators Al Gore Sr., and Robert Byrd who filibustered the legislation for 14 hours and was once an Exalted Cyclops of the Ku Klux Klan, we have spent over $4 trillion in good faith to create a level playing field and the numbers listed above are the disturbingly sad result.

" In recent years, reform minded prosecutors and other law-enforcement officials around the country have been coalescing around an agenda that promises to be more effective and just", Mr. Soros is pleased to announce. Yet, for all their coalescing Los Angeles, NYC, San Francisco, Chicago, Baltimore and Philadelphia, just to name a few, have become cesspools of crime and extreme violence. These are the very cities where Mr. Soros' bought and paid for "reform- minded prosecutors" rule. Reform and willful public endangerment are not the same thing.

Mr. Soros ends his apologia by saying, "Judging by the results, the public likes what it's hearing" but not in San Francisco where the Soros lackey, D.A. Chesa Boudin was recently recalled. If he really believes people like what they are hearing then Mr. Soros must also believe that there is such a thing as a chaste prostitute either that or he has been using his time during the last 18 months as an opportunity to catch up on some sleep.

SCOTTISH WOKERY

The dismal article below describes just how much preening political correctness has not only deposed the intellect of the Scots, or at least the members of Glasgow's City Council, but has also distorted their view of history.

As someone who was educated in the tradition of the Scottish Renaissance, still alive and well in the 1950s and 60s, I consider this an unwelcome development much to be deprecated. It casts aside historical context and replaces it with supercharged virtue signaling peddled by emotional hemophiliacs with a disgusting racist and fascist agenda.

In the 112 years prior to Winston Churchill's state funeral in February of 1965 there had only been two state funerals accorded to non-royal personages. One was to the Duke of Wellington in 1852 and the other was to William Ewart Gladstone in 1898.

The Iron Duke, along with Field Marshall Blucher, won the Battle of Waterloo in 1815 forever destroying Napoleon's continental ambitions and permanently removing his threat of invading the British island something to which every subject of the Crown took violent exception.

William Ewart Gladstone was an historic force in British politics for over 60 years. He served as Prime Minister four times and as Chancellor of the Exchequer four times, the two great offices of state. He championed equality of opportunity and free trade. A 19th. Century liberal of thoroughbred Scottish ancestry he left an indelible mark upon Britain from Land's End to John O'Groats.

These are just two of the most famous public servants in the nation's history whose statues the Glasgow City Council are now thinking of removing from one of the oldest public squares in their storied city in order to appease racist anarchic thugs who wish to honor George Floyd, a vicious criminal with a rap sheet so long it wouldn't fit on to the side of a bus. Exploring the geography of their minds it becomes clear how a commitment to woke identity politics dulls their sense of contradiction. Thus do they progress.....well, not exactly.

A PRINCELY PUTZ

This entire tawdry episode described in the link below is unseemly to say the least because the donations totaling 3 million Euros were made in cash.


It casts the suspicion that the money was ill-gotten by the donor, Sheik HBJ, a former prime minister of Qatar a double-dealing ally of the west that harbors international Islamic terrorist leaders and operatives.

Fortunately, there is not the slightest question that Prince Charles, one of the richest men in the world, was trying to enrich himself and all the money was recorded and deposited in the PWCF account.

I must agree with Sir Alistair Graham’s judgement on the matter as expressed in the article.

The optics are dreadful and lead to questions about the judgment of the heir to throne.

This will not be the first time such questions have been asked.

During the 1970s Prince Charles became involved with the now publicly disgraced Jimmy Savile, a highly popular, cocky, prancing, self-promoting disc-jockey and entertainer, who was involved in raising money for some charity which the prince supported.

As the years unfolded this relationship grew and strengthened to the point where, against all prudence let alone reason, Savile became an unofficial counselor to Prince Charles during his divorce and he often asked Savile’s advice about how to make the monarchy more popular with the British people. Savile dined at St.James’s Palace and the prince was a guest at Savile’s home in Scotland. All of this boosted Savile’s ego to a degree that is unimaginable and sickening.

When Savile died in October 2011 Prince Charles gave him a laudatory eulogy. Then the bomb dropped.

Within a year allegations of pedophilia against Savile going back 50 years started to surface and a full blown government inquiry was underway. The result was that Savile was stripped of his knighthood, honors, awards and condemned to ignominy of the sort from which there is no redemption.

Prince Charles was left with egg not so much on his face but covered in a mountain of it from head to toe. He had lots of distinguished company.

With the 3 million Euro cash donation to the PWCF, Prince Charles stands singularly alone.

Anxious to fund the worthy efforts of his prominent charity he has allowed himself to be embarrassed by an Arabian ingrate with real connections to Islamic terrorists who would just as soon place minarets on Buckingham Palace and stick the prince’s head on a pike outside its gates.

I don’t know what most people would call Prince Charles for accepting such a large donation in cash, but the word “putz” comes somewhat readily to mind.

For God's sake, God Save The Queen!

BRITAIN'S DEPORTATION FARCE


The article below describes how this year 10,500 illegal asylum seekers have managed to cross the English Channel and land safely on British shores. This is something that Phillip II of Spain, Louis XIV, Napoleon Bonaparte and Adolf Hitler failed to accomplish.

Instead of being met by the British army this invasion was met by an army of human rights lawyers armed with the white flag of national guilt and moral superiority at the ready to provide shelter, food, clothing and welfare cheques to people who have contributed nothing to the country's exchequer but who are destined to be a burden and drain upon it for years to come.

Who knew that Joe Biden and Alejandro Mayorkas were in charge of protecting Britain's borders?!

So much for Regnum Defende.

THE TREACHERY OF THE 'SQUAD':

 

Some people are born to commit shameful acts.

 

When the resolution was introduced on May 16th. in the House of Representatives by the "SQUAD", better known as the terrorist caucus of the Democratic Party, calling for the founding of Israel to be designated as a "catastrophe,” out popped the cloven hoof.

 

It is not only shameful, it is historically wrong. Israel was not "founded" in 1948; it was reconstituted in its ancient and historical homeland where Jerusalem had been its undivided capital a thousand years before Christ and sixteen hundred years before Muhammad. The SQUAD and its fellow travelers must have been very poorly educated.

 

The claims they submit in favor of Arab Palestinian ownership of the geographical area known as Palestine, and ruled by the Ottoman Empire for almost 400 years prior to its defeat by the allied powers in 1918, are in inverse proportion to the evidence they can provide for them. 

 

Furthermore, during the entire time the Ottomans controlled the region, no effort was made by Arab Palestinians to establish their own state until about 1964, yet now they claim that they have always owned the entire region and that Jerusalem is their capital city.  They have even advanced the preposterous notion that Jesus was an Arab Palestinian.

 

They are on a romp of fantasy, encouraged by determined Jew-hating American politicians who wish to see America's most faithful and intrepid ally in the region destroyed by a triumphalist Islamic ideology that brutally subjugates women, gleefully hangs homosexuals and viciously persecutes non-Muslim minorities. To paraphrase Oscar Levant, beneath the evil and treachery of the SQUAD lies evil and treachery.

 

The SQUAD blankets Israel with a blizzard of accusations. Israel is an apartheid state, they insist, where Arab Palestinians are denied civil liberties. Yet they are unwilling to admit that of the 400 million Arabs and Muslims living in the region, only about 1.9 million of them live in a country where there is freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of sexual expression, free elections and an independent judiciary. That country is Israel. How exactly is this a "catastrophe"?

 

The verminous SQUAD refuses to acknowledge the truth because doing so would contradict, confound, obscure and expose the lie they are peddling as well as the subversive crime they are trying to commit against the world's only Jewish state, whose one despairing wish is to live at peace with her neighbors. 

 

From the first day of her reconstitution in 1948 Israel has been an embattled outpost of  western values surrounded by genocidal enemies whose undiminished goal is her destruction. 

 

She has hardly known a moment's peace. Seven wars, two murderous Arab Palestinian Intifadas and a series of lethal terrorist attacks on her civilian population have been her dismal lot. Yet she has survived and prospered much to the chagrin of Jew-haters everywhere particularly in the Democratic Party where the very existence of a Jewish-Nation-State has not only become repulsive but is also challenged, hence the rebarbative resolution submitted by the SQUAD without the slightest rumble of an objection from the leadership of the Democratic Party or their stenographers in the main-stream-media. Against the treacherous malice of the SQUAD's resolution barely a ripple of condemnation could be seen on the fetid marsh of American journalism.

 

All of this unjustified, unwelcome, irrational and perpetual hostility makes the existence of Israel more important so that she can forever provide a voice, a refuge, a shield and a sword for the Jewish people.

 

".....Thrice is he arm'd, that hath his quarrel just; 

And he but naked, though locked up in steel,

Whose conscience with injustice is corrupted."
