Stockholm Syndrome becomes Glasgow Syndrome as Scots vote no to self-rule

By now “Stockholm Syndrome” is accepted to be a misnomer, not the behavior but the geographical attribution. But the term fits the Scotish people who have just rejected independence in favor of continued vassalage to the United Kingdom. If Scotland had elected autonomy, Wales might have followed, then Northern Ireland and even England, to pull the rug from under monarchic London, the feudal center of the vampiric British empire. Scotland’s “Glasgow Syndrome” proves London is in charge of the UK no doubt about it.

Freedom & duress NOT the same thing

A gentleman wrote earlier that Ireland signed a paper partitioning the Nation, and likewise, Scotland and Ireland had signed papers joining their people to the United Kingdom. And that therefore Scots and Irish Separatists are breaking a treaty and how very dare they do so, it’s dishonorable etc.
 
He was too busy reviling me personally to revile them but that is the gist of his words.

What wasn’t mentioned was that in either treaty the People of Ireland and the People of Scotland weren’t consulted. The “Lords” whose ancestors were in turn appointed and ennobled by the British Crown during prior invasions and occupations, signed the papers, and that at the point of gun and sword. Not by the people nor by their elected officials.

This was in comparison, by the way, to the Conquest and Occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan.

It’s like an armed robbery on a massive scale.

I mean, IF I were ever to want to control people, I’d not last very long at the enterprise mostly because anybody I could get to assist me in doing so would be under coercion. I could, theoretically, walk into a 7-Eleven or a Liquor store with an Uzi, and demand that the proprietor surrender to my will, do as I say, and that he promise to cooperate with my Armed Might, my one-man “Army of One” submachine gun, and provide me with as much of the goods and money in his store as I could carry away.

In an enterprise using an Army of MANY the logistics of the actions are more complex but the concept, the germ, the Basic Foundation of those actions would be Exactly The Same.

To go back to the Store Owner v. Probably Deranged Person w/Submachine Gun parable, if the person with the gun leaves the store, would the Store Owner be breaking some sort of Treaty to immediately call for help? If the gunman were, in the middle of the “treaty” to turn his attention and the Shopkeeper took the opportunity to disarm the gunman and perhaps kill the gunman, would the Shopkeeper be a “terrorist” or an “insurgent” or “unlawful combatant”?

If the gunman has a Gang of similar thugs with him, and the shopkeeper captures and disarms one or more of them, and holds a gun to their heads and demands the other Gunmen cease their robbery and threats of further violence, would that be a Terrorist Insurgent taking hostages, a Despicable act of Cowardice?

But that’s what the British and American Warmongers insist the “shopkeeper” of Iraq, and Afghanistan, and the Irish PEOPLE and Scots PEOPLE do or should have done.

Negotiate only with the Representatives of the people who were appointed to that position by the Conquering Invaders?

What kind of a Farce is that?

The Conquerors of Iraq and Afghanistan have no more right to demand the abject surrender of the people of those nations than the British Crown did with Scotland and Ireland, indeed, the “Nobles” with whom the English Crown negotiated the treaties, would have no more a legitimate enforceable authority to make such a treaty, for generations to come, than the Vichy Government did for the people of France, nor for all the French colonials.

To put it in a way the Right Wing would understand, their NEW conquests of Iraq, Afghanistan, Honduras, are no more legitimate because the Puppet Governments empowered by the Conquerors signed treaties, at the point of gun, sword, machine gun, the Mother Of All Bombs and the assembled armies of the Coalition. than the “Conquest” of Poland, East Germany, the Czech and Yugoslav and Armenian etc Republics were validated by the signing, under duress, of any treaties by their respective Puppet Dictators appointed by the conquering Armies of Britain, The U.S. and the Soviet Union.

Nor were the Irish under any such obligation to honor the partitioning of ireland, under duress, by the British. They were not in any way obligated to allow the British to keep Ulster.

To say that they were, or that the Iraqi and Afghan people are obligated to Obey The American and British Coalition in every thing that’s commanded… Is not just a Lie, it’s an Arrogant Lie.

And all the “PROOF” I need to say that those invasions were based on greed, and nothing more.

Certainly not any “fears of WMDs” and MOST CERTAINLY not any concern for Freedom for the Iraqi or Afghan people, any more than the British had concern for the Irish peoples freedom.

They show themselves to be the REAL terrorists.

Update on the Vuvuzela ban in British Soccer

I mentioned the cheaply made plastic horns being banned on the ridiculous “public safety-homeland security” excuse that they could be a weapon.
Now, I’ve a passing familiarity with weapons and the scars and record to prove it. If you could possibly use a vuvuzela as a weapon, if you have that skill level, then you would do a far quicker job of it with your bare hands. I also mentioned that the Soccer Football clubs don’t ban drunken rowdies, and the existence of beer so strong it’s properly measured in “proof” the way distilled spirits would be, 40% alcohol = 80 proof. The usual strength of distilled spirits in the U.S. Anything over 100 proof, is considered “overproof”. This is not from direct experience, I don’t drink. I do have a steadily decreasing number of friends who do. One of the many Reaganite approved ways of offing yourself with a little help from the Corporate Empire. Like this example. 55% 110 Proof BEER. It’s a microbrew, sure. Most English beer that’s a mere 25% alcohol (they call American beer “piss”) isn’t micro-brew, it’s commercial grade toxins.
This stuff is called “The End of History”, they made like 12 bottles for sale, at 500 pounds per bottle. Using stuffed animals to hold the bottles. By that I don’t mean Winnie the Pooh dolls or “my pretty pony” dolls…

REAL animals, dead and stuffed.

Yes, that’s really a dead squirrel. You’d be drinking, had they not sold all 12 bottles almost immediately, so we know there’s at least 2 dozen truly SICK ind-DUH-Viduals on the loose in our planet who have enough money to pay about $750 for something like … drinking from a dead animal.

It seems to me that you’d be French-kissing a dead rodent. While and at the same time, in a pointlessly repetitive, yet redundant, sort of way, poisoning yourself.

Bottoms up. These dudes seriously need to make friends with Bill W.

Meanwhile, in America and in Britain one can get the equivalent of a life sentence if you have pain medicine that’s not prescribed for you. The Capitalist Propagandists who are cheering this particular piece of Legalized (and insane) Drug Dealing, also cheered when Jeb Bush refused to issue a pardon to a Florida Resident who had 20 Vicodins which had been prescribed to him, for neuro pain from Multiple Sclerosis, and given a 25 year sentence without parole on the One-strike-you’re-out rule. The same week that Jeb Bush’s daughter, who also happened to be the niece of the (at the time) Current President of the U.S. and the granddaughter of another President…. got probation and a “sentence” to drug rehab after testing dirty for cocaine while already on probation for drug offenses.

And, meanwhile, here in Colorado Springs, the TeaBags are petitioning to ban the use of Medical Marijuana citywide. Their Puppet Organization the “Our Westside Neighbors” Fascist Control Freak Group is supporting the petition.

Hypocrisy in action.

Crusader Propaganda on History Channel again…

The title of the show is “The Holy Grail in America”.
The premise is that a Scots Knight Templar, Prince Henry Sinclair, the last of his breed, visited what’s now called Nova Scotia to hide The Legendary Templar Treasure including the Holy Grail, trusting all of these treasures to the Micmak tribe and somehow not leaving other things, like metal, European designs of ANY kind and gunpowder. Somehow they also didn’t have, as was the custom of the day, European animals such as horses (Knights in Armor not riding horses, right.) Cats. Hogs. Goats. Supposedly did bring a whole HUGE amount of acorns. To plant all the oak trees for which Oak Island was named. None of which remain. But in order to get the Treasure Hid, they allegedly built the island itself, approximately 5 square kilometers, using the “labor” resources of however many Knights could fit on a ship and still leave room for cargo and sailors. And an elaborate booby-trapped pit once attributed to a much later Professional Thief, Captain William Kidd. Of course, Knights are the equivalent of military combat officers. OK so they’re exactly Military Combat officers. Worthless as labor.

And then planted 5 square kilometers of Oak Trees to make it look like a regular island.

Somehow in the next century and a half before the French “discovered” this island and the much larger Nova Scotia, none of the acorns from those oaks went to the mainland not a mile away. Because according to the legend of the Holy Grail Hunter Propaganda Show Pretext, that particular species of Oak only grew on Oak Island.

The Micmak, who were supposedly so much in awe of Sir Henry Sinclair that they worshiped him as a Mighty White God from across the water who rode into town on the backs of not one but TWO whales, somehow didn’t remember his actual Sir Henry Sinclair name, and according to the Story Line helped him build the island while not once ever taking or copying any of the designs for their own dwellings (oh, yeah, that Superior European Technology impressed them so much that instead of abandoning their own technology in favor of it, they WTF my fingers rebelled against completing that ASININE thought) or even incorporating the slightest little bit of it into their own… and somehow also mistook his ONE ship, with which they became acquainted over the twenty years it would have taken to accomplish this massive brain fart…

as two whales.. People, the Micmak HAD boats. They lived on the coastal plains of Nova Scotia among other places, where they couldn’t even have gotten there without the use of boats. And they DID know the difference between “one” and “two”. And the difference between a Whale and a Boat. They used the latter to hunt the former, for God’s sake.

Somehow they also never kept or copied the Scottish sails or even the oars. They didn’t take or have traded to them by any of these knights or sailors over TWENTY YEARS any other tools, not even the ones they supposedly used to build the damn island under the direction of the Master Masons. If I were a member of the Micmak nation I’d be for suing these Walking Barf-bags under whatever anti-defamation statutes they have in Canada. They portray Native Americans as the most childlike simpletons imaginable.

This whole show is based on some of the most offensive racial-profiling HORSESHIT I’ve seen in my 50 years walking this Vale of Tears. This show makes Dan Brown look like an honest man.

But wait, there’s MORE. It’s being used once again to validate or attempt to validate the entire Retarded Manifest Destiny crappola. That somehow the Les Chevaliers Templars, after being baptized away from the French and Catholic Big No-No parts by removing them to Scotland, anointed America and by association Britain to be The New Jeruslam, the Shining City on the Hill, and Americans, but only the slave-owning, Native Massacring murdering Thieves who happen to be White, Anglo Saxon and Protestant (but they’ll gratuitously include Scots and maybe Irish… no, scrap that, not the IRISH “Ok, we’ll take the Spicks, Wops, Niggers and Chinks but we don’t want the damn Irish” from Blazing Saddles, The Uncut Version) are now anointed to be the New Chosen People of God to replace the Jews and thus make the Biblical prophecies point to America instead.

Somehow, the Pilgrims and Puritans, allegedly heavily influenced by Masonic philosophy and including supposedly the Secrets of The Freemasons, including the Holy Grail crap, never sought to go up the coast (once they got kicked out of England for being obnoxious and self-righteous) to retrieve the evidence left there a short two hundred years earlier. I mean, they had boats, right? And surely one of the Master Masons who allegedly arranged the whole Mayflower Compact deal would have given them the code words for “Micmak” and how to deal with the Ignorant, Child-like Retarded Savages portrayed in the Mock-umentary.

Oh, and did I forget, why yes I did, the Scots Knights who visited absolutely also failed to give the Micmak the Most Important Gift Of The White Superior Civilization (besides as the Pilgrims attempted, breaking the Ignorant Savages of their godless habit of BATHING) The twin Gift of Smallpox and Measles.

One of these Enlightened Puritan Ministers, Cotten Mather, supposedly eat up with Masonic Knowledge, called the Native Americans “constructs of the Devil without souls, demons in the shape of Men” because we’re not mentioned at all in Genesis.

To correct that, it was proposed, most famously by the Church of Latter Day Saints, that the American Indians were in fact the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel, who also failed to bring to the New Jerusalem any Old World Technology or animals. Like horses, goats, donkeys, wheat, beer, wine, metallurgy, The Freakin’ Wheel, Man…

Again with even less of a logical basis than this Oak Island/Crusader/Masonic/Treasure Pit?/Holy Grail crap-feast.

But all to the same end. To PROVE that America (and the Other Part of America, Canada, coincidentally the only other English America) is in fact destined by GOD, Himself, to be the standard bearers and leaders for the whole world.

So all you damned ol’ Hippie Librul Nut Jobs who think that the Global War On Everybody Else is just plain Wrong, you better listen up… according to the (il)Logical End of these Holy Grail Theories, you jes’ better shut yer ignernt butts and git in line with the Program, man!

AMERIKKKA, F–k YEAH!!

I’m not about to say that God endorsed any of my viewpoints on this. But He sure as HELL didn’t endorse any of the Bullshit brought forth in the entire GWOT, Holy Grail, Crusaders, Minutemen, Manifest Destiny, Knights Templars, English First or other Jingoistic propaganda which converges in this one Documentary.

Oh, and in response to this next wave of Crap, with Treasure Hunters being joined by Grail Hunters trying to dig up Oak Island and thus causing a public safety NIGHTMARE where every Retarded Grail Hunter who wants to commit self-harm will have to be rescued, at Canadian Government Expense, said Canadian Government is closing Oak Island to these buffoons.

Down to sports, empires are tribal

American World Cup viewers tuning in to watch their team face England on Saturday might be excused confusion about their adversary’s flag. Instead of the British Union Jack, English fans waved a red and white standard usually only glimpsed in movies where knights fight dragons, crusades, or Braveheart.
 
That’s the red cross of Saint George, dragon-slayer, minus the diagonal white-on-blue X of Scotland’s Saint Andrew and the red X of Ireland’s Saint Patrick. Where British dominion is concerned, natural resources and labor are commonwealth, assertion of athletic dominance is forever England.

But the England team crest, with the three lions passant-guardant, dates to lionhearted King Richard, the early realm’s warrior expansionist. Technically the heraldic cats are léopards, because the royal houses ruled in the language of the French, and these three show the empire’s spots: Team England’s badge invokes the era when “England” included the conquered Scotland, Ireland and Wales.

As far as world onlookers cared, the first round pairing of USA versus England was an intramural match among conspiratorial members of the Coalition of the Willing. At best one could only root for the good cop colonizer. Early enough in the game, a score fumbled past England’s goalie portended the Gods’ ambivalence over the outcome. Like Olympic teams, the FIFA contenders are groupings of soccer all-stars whose day jobs mean playing side by side, for either Man United or Real Madrid apparently. It’s hard to expect that team allegiances would defer to nationalism any more than to the federation’s television revenues. The achievement of a tie for match USA – England guaranteed to string along the barely interested American TV audience.

England, Scotland and Ireland were grandfathered into FIFA because, despite not being standalone sovereign nations, they originated the competition. Indeed Britain invented football, whose spread across the world is owed to European colonialism.

Sovereignty is no small distinction when it comes to legitimizing sports teams. Taiwan and Tibet are not recognized by China for example, as the Korean halves reject each other, as the US might object to Puerto Rican or Hawaiian bids for succession.

Today a pretense of sovereignty is enough to field a national soccer team. Take Iraq, Afghanistan and Israel, for example, and I needn’t stop there. By what standard are they independent entities versus US client states? They have their own flags, for all the US cares, and I daresay American pride would be sacrificed for the political gain of either of these puppets excelling their master in sport. A success in sporting circles would only bolster the facade of their indigenous national sovereignty.

Does it say something about the difference between contemporary empires and past, that the US doesn’t need to stamp the red, white and blue unto its colonial projects? Nor dominate them in the arena?

We can contrast America’s far-flung possessions and occupations with the British Commonwealth, whose flags closely mimicked mother Britain’s theme. But I’d like to clarify Ireland’s representation on the British flag. The cross of St. Patrick whose outline informs the Union Jack, represents Ireland before her independence. Still occupied Northern Ireland has a flag which duplicates England’s but for the addition of a loyalist co-opted red hand at its center.

While England holds fast to Scotland’s oil and Ireland’s loyalists, when it comes to sport, she wants all the credit.

Lockerbie bomber(s) get away for good

Libyan Abdel Basset al-Megrahi has been imprisoned in the UK since 2000, for the 1988 bombing of PanAm Flight 103 over Lockerbie Scotland. Libya paid restitution for the act, but maintain their –and al-Megrahi’s– innocence. It was announced yesterday that Al-Megrahi is being freed on humanitarian grounds, because he’s been diagnosed with prostate cancer, and not in exchange for his dropping the appeal of his conviction. Thus ends further inquiry into who else was suspected of responsibility for the suitcase bomb.
Cockpit of Flight103

–which resulted in the deaths of 270 people.

Scottish MP Tam Dalyell has cause for suspicion, as documented in the 1995 The Maltese Doublecross. Prevented from being widely screened, its first venue fire-bombed, the documentary was successfully quashed by the US and UK governments. Lockerbie victim survivors opposed evidence that threatened the compensation they were seeking from Libya.

Maltese Doublecross director Allan Francovich survived attempts to run him off the road, for two years. In 1997 Francovich died while in the custody of US customs agents in Houston, age 56.

Let’s just say that Francovich’s findings bore the same elements and cast of characters as the investigations of award-winning also-dead journalist Gary Webb, found suicided in 2005, with two gunshots to the head.
