Something Old, Something Not New


If you have been following this blog, then you realize that the Brexit Referendum results have caused much consternation.  Seemingly, the young are hardest hit.  Or so they report.  They blame the older Britons for some combination of racist, xenophobic, dumb, senile, out of touch, retarded, etc. for the referendum coming out wrong.  Perhaps they should consider applying some introspection.

Since time immemorial, young people think that they know it all.  In my case, I am not young enough to know everything.  They are being filled with knowledge and gaining capabilities, and as such feel that they should flex their new found muscles.  When I was that age, I knew enough such that I realized that I did not know it all.  Much of this probably came as a response to watching older relatives who did know it all.  In addition my childhood environment was rather modest; and if I wanted something, I had to figure out how to make it happen.  This leads to resourcefulness, and perhaps more importantly, a realistic view of the world.  Modern children have everything given to them; their parents respond to their every whim.  SO why wouldn’t they want to world to respond to their whims as adults?

This goes double for girls.  No more are girls taught to be modest both in dress and manner.  They can engage fully in hypergamic combat.  They work to get boys to respond to their every whim.

Then there are the fathers of these princesses.  They also respond to their every whim.  Everything is negotiable, and limits are driven to the edge.

Under these conditions, perhaps it is too much to expect women to possess any kind of wisdom.  It might be best to mostly ignore them.  I am sure that Ton would suggest that the best thing to do is to just tell them what to do and show who was boss.  He might be right.

Though it wasn’t always like this.  The Bible says explicitly that the older women are to teach the young women.  At the bare minimum basic simple wisdom was expected.  However in the present days, the young are just so awesomely awesome, that such teaching is not needed.

    About older women reining in the younger, I think that the reverse may be happening. Mothers openly colluding with their daughters to do nefarious deeds that are kept from their fathers who believe them to be little angels. In the meanwhile, the father is paying for it all.
    Everytime that I turn around, there is another way that good men are played for chumps.

    During an interview with CNN’s Richard Quest, Farage commented on whether there are similarities between the Brexit vote and the presidential election between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton in the United States. Farage said that Trump talks about issues that no one wants to talk about, and that a Trump administration would be better for the UK than a Clinton one. He also said that there wasn’t anything on Earth that could convince him to vote for Hillary Clinton

    part of the problem is that these younger women are this way b/c of how the ‘older women’ raised them. so what wisdom do these purportedly ‘older women’ actually have? the *wisdom* being passed down by most ‘older women’ is certainly not biblical wisdom.

    From Guido Fawkes…

    ‘Guido understands that an article by Jonathan Foreman headlined “Theresa May is a great self-promoter, but a terrible Home Secretary” was pulled after pressure from her campaign.’

    Here is the article:

    THERESA MAY IS A GREAT SELF PROMOTER BUT A TERRIBLE HOME SECRETARY

    “In the run-up to the 2015 election, one of the handicaps David Cameron had to finesse was the fact that net migration to the UK was three times as high as he had promised it would be. Remarkably, none of the opprobrium this failure provoked brought forth the name of Theresa May, the cabinet minister actually entrusted with bringing migration down. Then, as now, it was as if the icy Home Secretary had a dark magic that warded off all critical scrutiny.

    The fact that her lead role in this fiasco went unnoticed and unmentioned likely reflects Mrs May’s brilliant, all-consuming efforts to burnish her image with a view to become prime minister.

    After all, Mrs May’s tenure as Home Secretary has been little better than disastrous – a succession of derelictions that has left Britain’s borders and coastline at least as insecure as they were in 2010, and which mean that British governments still rely on guesswork to estimate how many people enter and leave the country.

    People find this hard to credit because she exudes determination and strength. Compared to many of her bland, flabby cabinet colleagues, she has real gravitas. And few who follow British politics would deny that she is a deadly political infighter. Indeed Theresa May is to Westminster what Cersei Lannister is to Westeros in Game of Thrones: no one who challenges her survives undamaged, while the welfare of the realm is of secondary concern.

    Theresa May: British police to be deployed to EurosPlay! 00:53
    Take the demoralised, underfunded UK Border Force. As the public discovered after a people-smugglers’ vessel ran aground in May, it has has only three cutters protecting 7,700 miles of coastline. Italy by contrast has 600 boats patrolling its 4722 miles.

    Considering the impression Mrs May gives of being serious about security, it’s all the more astonishing that she has also allowed the UK’s small airfields to go unpatrolled – despite the vastly increased terrorist threat of the last few years, the onset of the migration crisis, and the emergence of smuggling networks that traffic people, drugs and arms.

    Then there is the failure to establish exit checks at all the country’s airports and ports. These were supposed to be in place by March 2015.

    Border checks ‘suspended regularly’ since 2007Play! 02:18
    Unfortunately the Border Force isn’t the only organisation under Mrs May’s control that is manifestly unfit for purpose. Recent years have seen a cavalcade of Home Office decisions about visas and deportations that suggest a department with a bizarre sense of the national interest.

    The most infamous was the refusal of visas to Afghan interpreters who served with the British forces in Afghanistan – as Lord Guthrie said, a national shame.

    Mrs May has kept so quiet about this and other scandals – such as the collapse of the eBorders IT system, at cost of almost a billion pounds – that you might imagine someone else was in charge the Home Office.

    [It’s not just a matter of the odd error. Yvette Cooper pointed out in 2013 that despite Coalition rhetoric, the number of people refused entry to the UK had dropped by 50 per cent, the backlog of finding failed asylum seekers had gone up and the number of illegal immigrants deported had gone down.]

    The reputation for effectiveness that Mrs May nevertheless enjoys derives from a single, endlessly cited event: the occasion in 2014 when she delivered some harsh truths to a conference of the Police Federation.

    Cameron: Relaxation of border checks is ‘unacceptable’Play! 00:46
    Unfortunately this was an isolated incident that, given the lack of any subsequent (or previous) effort at police reform, seems to have been intended mainly for public consumption.

    In general Mrs May has avoided taking on the most serious institutional problems that afflict British policing. These include a disturbing willingness by some forces to let public relations concerns determine policing priorities, widespread overreliance on CCTV, the widespread propensity to massage crime numbers, the extreme risk aversion manifested during the London riots, and the preference for diverting police resources to patrol social media rather than the country’s streets.

    There is also little evidence that Mrs May has paid much attention to the failure of several forces to protect vulnerable girls from the ethnically-motivated sexual predation seen in Rotherham and elsewhere. Nor, despite her supposed feminism, has Mrs May’s done much to ensure that girls from certain ethnic groups are protected from forced marriage and genital mutilation. But again, Mrs May has managed to evade criticism for this.

    When considering her suitability for party leadership, it’s also worth remembering Mrs May’s notorious “lack of collegiality”.

    David Laws’ memoirs paint a vivid picture of a secretive, rigid, controlling, even vengeful minister, so unpleasant to colleagues that a dread of meetings with her was something that cabinet members from both parties could bond over.

    Unsurprisingly, Mrs May’s overwhelming concern with taking credit and deflecting blame made for a difficult working relationship with her department, just as her propensity for briefing the press against cabinet colleagues made her its most disliked member in two successive governments.

    It is possible that Mrs May’s intimidating ruthlessness could make her the right person to negotiate with EU leaders. However, there’s little in her record to suggest she possesses either strong negotiation skills or the ability to win allies among other leaders, unlike Michael Gove, of whom David Laws wrote “it was possible to disagree with him but impossible to dislike him,”

    It’s surely about time – and not too late – for conservatives to look behind Mrs May’s carefully-wrought image and consider if she really is the right person to lead the party and the country.

    There’s a vast gulf between being effective in office, and being effective at promoting yourself; it’s not one that Theresa May has yet crossed.”

    As the article by Madison Pauly goes on to discuss the lawsuit filed by Ehrhart and his wife against the U.S. Department of Education — which challenges federal guidelines on campus sexual assault as biased and causing “severe, unwarranted and permanent damages” to young men — something strange happens. It turns out that, while Ehrhart is indeed a conservative Republican, his concerns about the evisceration of due process for (nearly always male) students accused of sexual misconduct in college disciplinary proceedings are far from groundless. For one, as the article acknowledges, those concerns are shared by dozens of law professors — many of them women, such as Harvard Law School’s Elizabeth Bartholet and Cornell’s Sheri Lynn Johnson. Moreover, the problems are very real: Under the new rules, “The evidence [has] only to show that an assault was ‘more likely than not’ to have occurred, and alleged perpetrators [have] no right to cross-examine the person who reported them.”

    Yoda – the whole conversation was very enlightening.

    I was very surprised at much that she shared and how she worded it. She was very thoughtful about what she said.

    I was very surprised that she felt her dad was more available to her than other dads she heard her peers talk about. He would not always be able to drop everything and talk to them, but if they called and left a voice mail message, he would more often than not try to get back to them within a reasonable amount of time … and he never told them not to call him. Same if they emailed him.

    i was surprised to hear her say that even being able to touch us and sit on our laps when little was a big deal – not only that she could, but that not all her peers had that access to their parents.

    I wasn’t surprised to hear her response that women do not teach younger women, but i was surprised at how quickly and firm and strong she responded. she didn’t even need to think about it. I was also surprised that she saw little difference between working moms and career moms.*

    I was deeply grateful that she knew and understood that my choosing to be there for her was my choice and that i made it b/c she is valuable and important and priority in my life.

    * Years before we had children, my husband and i attended a parenting seminar led by a man who was a father. the one thing i’ve always remembered is him saying that if you are going to be a sahm, then be a mom who stays home with her kids and interracts with them … don’t go to so many functions that the kids aren’t priority.

    people talk. kids talk. word gets around.

    OR … the woman will be preaching ‘go gurl’ feminist stuff … which the younger women will absorb and then act out b/c they don’t know anything different.

    thank you for the compliment 🙂

    i have sacrificed a lot to be their mom. and while i do not regret any of it, i admit to having times of wondering if i’ve done more right than not. it’s in moments like this, listening to my daughter(s), that i’m reaffirmed … investing everything i am and can into their lives is more than worth it.

    if i have to boil the rest of my life down into one goal, it’s this … to live as long as my girls need me so as to pour as much of me into them as possible so that when i’m gone, they have all they need and more to finish their lives well. i hope and pray that’s a long, long way away 🙂

    From the Diplomad
    http://www.thediplomad.com/2016/06/yet-again-yet-again-islam-shows-its.html

    “Please forgive my citing previous posts, but it proves hard to say anything new about dealing with the Islamic threat,

    How to deal with Islam? Take it at its word. When Islam says it wants to conquer, enslave, and kill us, believe it. Islam claims to be a warrior creed, accept that. Peace marches, candlelight vigils, piles of teddy bears, bathing buildings in colorful lights, and word salad speeches about “not letting the terrorists win by changing our ways” just won’t cut it. I would bet that many of those killed in New York, Boston, London, Paris, and Brussels were progressive liberal sorts who “welcomed” the arrival of Muslims, and would have proven horrified at the thought of our portraying Islam as a murderous dogma. Delusions can and will get you killed.

    The case of Turkey and Islam is a complex one. Suffice to say, that by putting Islam back into national politics, Turkey’s current rulers deviated from Ataturk’s post-Ottoman policy of suppressing Islam, and removing it from the nation’s political and military spheres. Ataturk saw Islam as the major reason Turkey was backward, “the sick man of Europe.” The leaders of Turkey have played games with ISIS and other terrorists, thinking they could outsmart them and use them against the pro-Russian Syrian regime and the persistent Kurdish demands for a homeland. How did that work out? You cannot ally with or befriend ISIS or, for that matter, Islam. It will backfire. Why? Because Islam’s objective is your submission, or failing that, your death. Look at our relations with the Saudis. If anybody owes the United States, the Saudi royals do. Yet, we see them funding terror and even turning a blind eye to direct attacks on the United States homeland and our people around the world.

    Yes, take it at it’s word. Nothing that hasn’t been said here again and again of course.

    I will never understand why folks disregard what they say and look for different motives.

    Culprit: “I am killing indiscriminately to spread the Caliphate! Praise Allah!”

    Liberals wringing their hands: “Oh, if only we could understand their motivations! Whatever do they want?”

    I’m reminded of a recent Scott Adams video with his dog Snickers (that most dog owners can probably appreciate).
    He placed a bowl of dogfood in front of Snickers and the dog wasn’t interested in his boring old food. But when Scott took a piece in his hand, right in front of Snickers and said, “Do you want a treat?” Snickers jumped up and took it and ate is excitedly.
    He did this a couple of times.

    The response from Liberals to Muslim terrorism makes Snickers look like Einstein.

    The Tory Party in the Houses of Parliament are trying to suggest that they not bother electing their next leader, just anoint the Quisling Useless May.

    The reason? Well, in the Tory party, the MPs choose down to the last two candidates and then the Tory party member proles get to vote on those two.

    The problem? The MPs basically wanted Remain, they want the candidate that will basically flub the referendum away and stay as close to the EU as they can get away with.

    You may be interested in this little poll result, done by the Bow Group on conservative party members:

    “Results:
    Andrea Leadsom & Liam Fox: 1,086 (48.74%)
    Stephen Crabb & Sajid Javid: 120 (5.39%)
    Boris Johnson & Michael Gove: 715 (32.095)
    Theresa May: 305 (13.69%)

    http://www.bowgroup.org/policy

    Now you know why the Tory MPs don’t want to have the stupid, ignorant peasants making up their own party have a vote …

    I don’t want one because it’ll maybe trigger a GE. The winner might well claim that the referendum has been rendered moot. Also that leaves the country rudderless for even longer that these cockwombles are managing now.

    The labour party will be utterly annihilated under Corbyn, so they don’t want one.

    The Tories…some might see advantage in a GE while laba is on the ropes, but without respecting the referendum vote first? Tricky. UKIP might make some decent inroads in the south (Tory) and the north (labour). The Tories (and everyone else) is freezing out UKIP at the moment, they’re all deathly afraid of giving the party any oxygen. Farage got us the referendum (Dave was scared into it). Farage won it by focusing on the key issue underlying all the issues in the country; too many people in the country (don’t care about race, creed or colour…too frigging many non-British). immigration.

You and the dozens of men she’s slept with already and all the baggage and prizes that go along with that. Sounds like going to college, spending 4 years in graduate school, and a lifetime of debt, just to be an insurance salesman. The upside is what again? Oh yeah, some disease ridden, stuck up snobby, sex tart that will take advantage of you or claim you raped her 6 years from now and ruin your reputation and cost you your career. Sounds like a fair use of my time and effort. I’d rather go hiking, or listen to music, or read a good book, or fix or build something. People who strongly defend game are people who are trying to justify the time and effort wasted pursuing something of questionable value, modern women. If it makes you feel good go for it. But harping on men who see no value in it or don’t have the ability to pretend to be something they’re not night after night isn’t productive.”

    Hard to come up with an answer with the likes of Big Red saying why are the menz so mean to me. If you like PUA fine go for it. If you want to reset to traditionalism go for it and if you find one ask if she has a sister. If you want to MGTOW good on ya as long as you GO and don’t just whine. Just pick your thing and do it.

    No, it’s not original with Klein. But by the time he got around to weighing in on the subject, the idea that Brexit was somehow Britain’s equivalent of Donald Trump had congealed into an Crisco-like oleaginous mass. “The passage of Brexit,” Klein writes, “and the presence of Donald Trump are the results of a massive lowering of standards [!] that has been promulgated over the past 20 years by the media and the leadership of political parties in both countries, in the pursuit of popularity. This is what happens when democracy grows flabby. The people, when uninterested, must be entertained, and if they can’t be entertained, their fears must be exploited.”

    Unraveling all the condescending assumptions packed into those few sentences would provide apt material for a lengthy disquisition. Ponder, to take just one element in Klein’s effusion, the implications of his suggestion that the reason people voted for Brexit was because democracy had grown “flabby.” You can turn in your reflections after the weekend. Typed and double-spaced, please.

    In the meantime, think about this further tidbit from Joe Klein:

    So let’s make no bones about what happened in Britain. This was not so much a vote against the bureaucratic depredations, real and imagined, of the E.U. It was a vote – by elderly, non-college-educated Brits – against the wild flow of immigrants, most of them benign and excellent workers, but many of them reluctant to assimilate and more than a few of them embracing a faddish, lethal Islamic extremism.

    The critical point, however, is snobbery. Who are those “elderly, non-college-educated-Brits” and why is anyone paying attention to them?

Other countries implement them casually, slowly, avoidably, ours betrays us by making them worse.

    Theresa May is the front runner to be the next PM. She’s been a catastrophic failure in the Home Office (UK affairs). But she’s a very vague europhobe or europhile.

    If they don’t, it will be electoral suicide….and I sense they realise this. The Tories have to appeal to the 17 million who voted for Brexit, not just by delivering full Brexit, but also by narrowing the gap between rich and poor, which was the main reason so many of the less well off voted for Brexit.

    And of the candidates on TV this morning, only Gove made this point, with his disgust at the massive boardroom payments for failure, at the expense of those at the bottom of the pay scale.

    It will take more than just a Brexit PM, to deliver the changes this country sorely needs. It needs a PM with the vision and drive to make those changes happen.

    Yes well, my comments should count more than any of you foreign jokers comments. Last count, I had 3 fingers and a thumb on me right hand and 2 fingers and a thumb on me left hand (me left forefinger doesn’t count because it’s doing the pointing… or does that mean it’s the only one that “counts”? I dunno).

    Where was I… oh yes, last count I also had 11 toes. When I counted the whole lot up I came to a whopping 16. That’s how much a Moehau Man’s comment should count. Me Kauri Club says so.

    First quoted here by Spawny at 1:43 pm
    – letter from Aldous Huxley to George Orwell in 1949.

    “Within the next generation I believe that the world’s leaders will discover that infant conditioning and narco-hypnosis are more efficient, as instruments of government, than clubs and prisons, and that the lust for power can be just as completely satisfied by suggesting people into loving their servitude as by flogging them and kicking them into obedience”

    Remove men from education and replace fathers with the State and the young are left exposed to the conditioning of an emasculated world.

    Sad…so sad

    Angela Merkel could move to oust Europe’s federalist chief Jean-Claude Juncker ‘within the next year’, a Germany government minister has said, in a sign of deepening European divisions over how to respond to Britain’s Brexit vote.

    The German chancellor’s frustration with the European Commission chief came as Europe split over whether to use the Brexit negotiations as a trigger to deepen European integration or take a more pragmatic approach to Britain as it heads for the exit door.

    “The pressure on him [Juncker] to resign will only become greater and Chancellor Merkel will eventually have to deal with this next year,” an unnamed German minister told The Sunday Times, adding that Berlin had been furious with Mr Juncker “gloating” over the UK referendum result.

    Mr Juncker’s constant and unabashed calls for “more Europe”, has led to several of Europe other dissenting members – including Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic – to lay some of the blame for Brexit at his door.

    Indeed elite tribalism is actively encouraged by the technologies of globalization, the ease of travel and communication. Distance and separation force encounter and immersion, which is why the age of empire made cosmopolitans as well as chauvinists — sometimes out of the same people. (There is more genuine cosmopolitanism in Rudyard Kipling and T. E. Lawrence and Richard Francis Burton than in a hundred Davos sessions.) . . .

    But it’s a problem that our tribe of self-styled cosmopolitans doesn’t see itself clearly as a tribe: because that means our leaders can’t see themselves the way the Brexiteers and Trumpistas and Marine Le Pen voters see them.

    They can’t see that what feels diverse on the inside can still seem like an aristocracy to the excluded, who look at cities like London and see, as Peter Mandler wrote for Dissent after the Brexit vote, “a nearly hereditary professional caste of lawyers, journalists, publicists, and intellectuals, an increasingly hereditary caste of politicians, tight coteries of cultural movers-and-shakers richly sponsored by multinational corporations.”

    They can’t see that paeans to multicultural openness can sound like self-serving cant coming from open-borders Londoners who love Afghan restaurants but would never live near an immigrant housing project, or American liberals who hail the end of whiteness while doing everything possible to keep their kids out of majority-minority schools.

    They can’t see that their vision of history’s arc bending inexorably away from tribe and creed and nation-state looks to outsiders like something familiar from eras past: A powerful caste’s self-serving explanation for why it alone deserves to rule the world.

    Horseman –
    “Ame

    Wow. Just getting caught up and followed the link to your blog piece. Bang on.

    Exactly why the Mrs stayed at home right thru the teenage years. Created lots of financial hardship and me working two jobs but it was exactly this. Get married, go MGTOW, have kids,don’t whatever.

    BUT once you have any dependent: spouse, kids, animals whatever, Their NEEDS come first.

    My daughter once asked why I was as fiercely protective of the various kids who came to crash from bad situations as I am of her. “Because once they enter this house they are under My Protection, Full Stop”

    Note I said Need not Want. Being a parent also means teaching resilience and taking a punch. Your rent is due but you dont get paid for a week? Shouldnt have bought those shoes. You tell him. If he threatens to kick you out (not likely) then I will step in but loan you money for your lack lf planning? Uh No.

    All this shit between the genders, govt etc. just comes down to take individual responsibility for your actions, empathy for others, and a moral duty to help those around you who genuinely need it to help themselves. It aint complicated.

    yeah yeah spoken like a true Libertarian (but as a Canadian I dont have a gun).”

    ——–

    ummm, wow … thank you. that’s a high compliment coming from you!

    i’ve found kids do not outgrow having a parent at home. there is an anchor, a stability, a foundation, children are provided with a parent at home. they know if they get sick or need help, there is someone available to them. being an available sahm, i’ve helped a lot of kids and their parents over the years. kids need to know someone is there for them.

    needs vs wants is a BIG deal in our home. i’ve always made my girls define the difference. they NEED to know they are loved by me, period, simply because they are mine … not b/c of anything they’ve done or haven’t done, not b/c of how they look, how they act, or anything else. God gave you to me; you are mine; therefore i love you. period. the end.

    children NEED to know we love them by our words and actions. i remember reading many, many years ago where a man had asked the question, “How did you know your mom loved you? What did she do that made you know she loved you?” i remember he listed several possibilities, one being … did she put your pj’s in the dryer to warm them up on cold nights? it wasn’t that we need to do that specifically … it’s more that love is proven by our actions, and those actions are personal to each child b/c each child is different. my kids never get to use the line, “Well, you do *this* for HER!” because my girls are individuals. i’ll ask them if they want me to parent them like i do their sister, and they always say, “No!” of course there are things that are common and basic … but beyond that, there are things we do to show each person they are loved.

    children NEED food, clothing, and shelter. my girls know very well that this can mean their nice, comfy beds … or a bare floor – or a tent in the back yard – their choice. they wanna do drugs or other crazy things, i have no problem calling the cops on them, letting them spend a night in jail, or removing everything from their room except a blanket, pillow, and three changes of clothes. they get to choose. thankfully they have enough wisdom to know i’m telling the truth and have never pushed me that far.

    respect and gratitude are a way of life and expected … if they decide these are not important, see the above paragraph. they know trust is more valuable than priceless jewels, and if they do anything to loose my trust, it will take a very long time to earn it back.

    above all, my girls know i love them, i care about and for them, and that i’ve got their back simply because they are mine.
