Russian flags flood Crimean capital as thousands back takeover
Hmm...I wonder how that Crimean secession referendum will go on March 16? I wonder...

SNL skewers Obama on Crimean secession, Iraq, and his flaming metrosexuality. The hypocrisy of the DC regime is now the butt of jokes.
"My whole life I've heard Republicans hate black people. I've never seen any evidence of it until I read Marco Rubio's amnesty bill. Who gets hurt the most by amnesty, by continuing these immigration policies? It is low-wage workers, it is hispanics, it is blacks." Ann Coulter
Vox Day cites that notoriously "neo-Confederate" propaganda mill known as the New York Times on the explosive issue of secession in Crimea. The editorial writers at the Times are having a little difficulty making sense of Obama's opposition to a popular referendum on Crimea seceding from Ukraine:
Consider the different American views of recent bids for independence. Chechnya? No. East Timor? Yes. Abkhazia? No. South Sudan? Yes. Palestine? It’s complicated. It is an acutely delicate subject in the West, where Britain wants to keep Scotland and Spain wants to keep Catalonia.To which Vox Day adds:
And the USA murdered hundreds of thousands in order to forcibly "keep the Union together" and deny the sovereign Southern States their right to self-determination. This has not escaped the attention of the world's second-rate powers, some of whom have indicated support for the Russian position.What the ruling elite can't grasp is that the peoples of the world do not share their globalist vision. Crimea has a majority Russian population that does not want to be part of Ukraine. This is just one more problem caused by the anti-human policies of the old Soviet Union. And it wasn't just the Reds who violated natural borders; the West is largely to blame for the unnatural and unsustainable political lines drawn in Africa during colonial times. As the folks in Sudan recently made clear, those borders are being redefined by history and culture. The lessons of this worldwide trend apply here, too. As our rulers in DC import a more docile population from the Third World, the actual result is not a flowering of diversity but a loss of identification and loyalty to the old American nation. Already, secession is gaining steam in America, and ethnic and racial divisions are openly recognized as the reason. No people anywhere in the world wants to be governed by others - self-determination is just another term for secession. So as DC continues to reconstruct the old America, look for REAL secession movements to arise here at home.
The Vancouver Sun scrutinizes the claims of the diversity cultists and concludes diversity does irreparable harm to society:
Are you engaged with your community? Or are you “hunkering down?” Are you connecting with friends, volunteering or involved in politics? Or are you drawing into yourself, “like a turtle?” Harvard sociologist Robert Putnam has completed an important study of more than 30,000 North Americans and concluded that – especially if you live in ethnically diverse cities such as Toronto, Vancouver or Los Angeles – it’s likely you are “hunkering down.” That’s the colloquial phrase that Putnam, who has been an adviser to everyone from Bill Clinton and Tony Blair to the U.S. State Department and the World Bank, uses to describe the lack of trust he discovered among most North Americans in diverse urban settings.As far as big business, big government, and Cultural Marxists are concerned, this isn't a defect of diversity, but a selling point. They want an atomized society where the individual has no bonds, no history, and no nurturing community. That makes the population easier to control and exploit.
"His tax-gatherers crushed rich and poor alike; the wealth of a looted kingdom poured into Tarantia, which became less like the capital of a realm than the garrison of conquerors in a conquered land. Its merchants waxed rich, but it was a precarious prosperity; for none knew when he might be accused of treason on a trumped-up charge, and his property confiscated, himself cast into prison or brought to the bloody block." Robert E. Howard, from The Hour of the Dragon (Kindle Locations 2800-2802). Howard's description of life under the tyrant Valerius sounds like the DC Empire.
DC's hypocrisy is on full display over the Crimean secession vote:
President Obama continues to express outrage at the idea of the Crimea seceding from the Ukraine, and today insisted that an impending referendum on whether Crimeans want to secede itself “violates international law.”Remember how DC supported independence for the Muslim Kosavars in 2008, despite Serbia's forceful objections? But that was okay because the Kosavars were pro-DC. Ukraine is also part of the DC harem, so now secession suddenly violates something Obama calls "international law." Right. Once again, DC's Temporary Dictator thinks he's King of the World and has the right to stick his nose anywhere he wants. Thing is, more and more Americans reject that view. Naturally, the parasites who live off big government don't like this trend. Michael Gerson, one of the most repulsive of the Empire's stable of cheerleaders, has this to say about Americans' plummeting support for US intervention:
In the 20th century, the United States was both unique and irreplaceable because it exercised great power without the blood-and-soil nationalism of Russia, Germany or Japan. It stood for universal, liberal, democratic ideals. We should not expect those humane ideals to thrive in the vacuum left by a retreating America.But DC's actions show it's motivated by its own self-interest rather than the airy "universal ideals" it uses to justify its wars. And people are starting to notice. Tick-tock...
From the look of things, I'd say "totally." Read this report from National Review (where else?) and judge for yourself:
Two participants in a panel on immigration at CPAC today expressed confidence in their closing statements that Hispanic immigrants will be a source of future votes for the Republican party. “Latino voters are the Regan Democrats of today,” said Alfonso Aguilar, the executive director of the Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles. “I believe that the majority of them can actually be members of CPAC in the future,” concurred the Reverend Luis Cortés Jr.This feeds on the narcissistic notion that inside every foreigner is an American trying to get out. W the Conqueror tapped into that mythology when he unleashed his armed forces to liberate Iraq and Afghanistan. He assured Americans that the people of those two Muslim countries would magically transform into grateful allies and would soon be holding democratic elections. Yeah. Iraq and Afghanistan were monumental failures, but will be relatively inconsequential compared to the importation of millions of Latino immigrants. Here's what I've said before about this dumb idea:
Both of the "mainstream" political parties in Mexico are members of the Socialist International. Only a Republican would be dumb enough to imagine Mexicans will magically transform into a conservative constituency.And check out this graphic many Republicans are bandying about the Internet:
Obama is right: If people are permitted to choose their own government - and the very THOUGHT just sends shivers down the spines of all right-thinking people - where will that lead us? Why, it would be - messy, that's what! Order must be maintained - at any price! In case you haven't noticed, things are getting REAL interesting ...
More good news:
According to a YouGov poll conducted this week, only 14 percent of Americans said the U.S. has “any responsibility” to get involved in Ukraine, and only 18 percent think the U.S. “has any responsibility to protect Ukraine if Russia were to invade” “Americans are more likely than not to say that the United States has no responsibility to get involved in Ukraine even under extreme circumstances, the new survey shows,” the Huffington Post reports. “Pluralities of Democrats, Republicans and independents agreed that the U.S. does not have a responsibility to protect Ukraine.”Don't you know the ruling class hates stories like this? Heh.

As we were saying just yesterday, the world political map is in flux. Always has been. Always will be. Crimea, which was made a part of Ukraine during the Soviet years, seems headed for union with its Russian compatriots:
The parliament of Crimea, a majority ethnic Russian region within Ukraine, decided Thursday to secede from the country and become part of Russia, according to a statement on its website. A popular vote to approve the decision or restore the 1992 Crimean Constitution, whereby the peninsula would remain an autonomous republic within Ukraine, is scheduled for March 16, the statement said.March 16? These folks aren't wasting any time.
Here's a vivid example of the power of celebrating history. Looks like Texan secession is picking up steam, according to this report from CBS News:
As Texas celebrated its annual “Texas Independence Day,” many in the state’s government leadership and ongoing secession movement say Texas is finally preparing to become an “independent nation.” ... But recent rhetoric from anti-tax Tea Partiers, libertarians and state officials alike suggests that the secession movement may be moving a step beyond parties and re-enactments. Texas Attorney General candidate Barry Smitherman has openly expressed the possibility of Texas secession. “Generally speaking, we have made great progress in becoming an independent nation, an ‘island nation’ if you will, and I think we want to continue down that path so that if the rest of the country falls apart, Texas can operate as a stand-alone entity with energy, food, water and roads as if we were a closed-loop system,” Smitherman said. Candidate for Texas governor, Larry Kilgore, recently wrote that he believes a “U.S. economic collapse cannot be avoided,” and the best solution would be for “Texas needs to secede now or we will sink too.”Leftists and empire worshipers will tell you it can't happen. But if they'd spend five minutes with any world history book, they'd realize the sun finally set on the "eternal" British, Spanish, and Soviet empires. Talk of an “indissoluble” or "indestructible" union is just that, talk. Political forms come and go, and no one can deny that we're in an age of secession. In 1900 there were only 57 independent nations. Today there are 196. Looks like a trend to me. And it's so big, even CBS News can't ignore it. Know hope.
The New Jersey legislature is actually considering a bill that would make owners of many .22 rifles criminals:
New Jersey has become ground zero this year for legislative battles over gun control. The Brady Campaign ranked the state third in the nation for most restrictive firearms laws, yet anti-gun Democrats who control the legislature are determined to go all the way to gun bans and confiscation. The New Jersey Assembly’s Law and Public Safety Committee was scheduled to hold a public hearing on Monday (postponed for snow) about a bill that reduces the maximum magazine capacity from 15 to 10. Since the legislation covers both detachable and fixed magazines, it has the effect of to banning popular, low-caliber rifles.Of course, the rational way to deal with gun crime is to vigorously prosecute those who commit crime. Instead, New Jersey is going after law-abiding gun owners. Now that's Jersey Dumb.
It's simple, says Jonathon Moseley - just turn the tables: All across the nation, we need conservative activists with a little funds to launch the following campaign:
(1) Search for left-leaning or homosexual-wedding-friendly bakeries, florists, photographers, etc. (2) Approach those bakers to bake cakes with conservative or Christian messages or photographers to photograph right-wing political conferences, conventions, or events. For example, order a sheet cake for church or an event (maybe a party) with Christian messages or scriptures such as “Children need a mother and a father” or “Marriage is one man and one woman.” Or: John 3:3 “You must be born again” or “Jesus is Lord.”Ha!
The winds of change are a-blowin'. While it may be true folks are only debating secession from a State, just raising the issue will unleash ideas the powers that be cannot stop:
If you mention the word "secession" most people think of the South during the Civil War. But today, a new movement is gaining steam because of frustration over a growing, out-of-control federal government. A number of conservative, rural Americans are taking about seceding and creating their own states ...As the article explains, the growing divide is between both left vs. right and urban vs. rural. But I see even greater rifts building as DC continues to self-destruct from imperial overstretch. At some point, REAL secession movements will spring up as people freely self-organize around shared cultures. Tick-tock ...
"We are not really having an argument about same-sex marriage anymore, and on the evidence of Arizona, we’re not having a negotiation. Instead, all that’s left is the timing of the final victory — and for the defeated to find out what settlement the victors will impose." Ross Douthat
A minion of DC usurps State authority over the regulation of marriage and overrules the express will of the people - 75% of Kentucky voters approved the amendment to their constitution protecting traditional marriage. What to do? Why, ask the Great and Powerful Oz for help, of course. Yes, that's the answer. Governor Beshear will beg DC to respect Kentucky's right to self-government:
Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear said Tuesday that he will appeal a federal judge's order requiring Kentucky to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states. The definition of marriage in Kentucky and other states "will be and should be ultimately decided by the U.S. Supreme Court in order to bring finality and certainty to this matter," Beshear said in a statement. "The people of this country need to know what the rules will be going forward. Kentucky should be a part of this process."Words fail me here. If you concede that an arm of the central government has the final say, you've already surrendered. So why pretend to fight?
We've watched the Tea Party groping in the dark for a way forward to advance liberty, and frankly, we haven't been too impressed. They have stumbled in the past, and have sometimes even fed the monster they're supposed to oppose. Still, we have been hopeful. Once again, there are positive signs from the Tea Partiers. In this article, two of their leaders come out firmly against sticking our noses into the Ukrainian brouhaha, all too aware that the powers that be are itching for another war:
Do you understand these events well enough to decide who is in the right? Neither do we. Nor do the same talking heads who promised, a decade ago, that bringing democracy to Iraq would be a “cakewalk,” which would “fund itself” through the oil revenues of a new, pro-American government presiding peacefully from Baghdad. Eleven years, thousands of American lives and trillions of dollars later, Iraq is still a shattered and bloody “failed state” – and “experts” such as William Kristol and John McCain, who helped to promote that war, are somehow still taken seriously.We must refuse to support this war not merely to spite the traitors and globalists in DC, but because war is the lifeblood of the Empire. The bigger and stronger we allow the monster to grow, the more it will oppress us. DC has mutated into a ravenous monster that is aggressive abroad and despotic at home. Do not feed!
Here's one consequence of DC's open borders policy many probably haven't considered: No matter where trouble brews on the planet, there will be a group from the troubled area demanding U.S. military intervention. So it's no surprise we have Ukrainians protesting in favor of intervening in Crimea. Meanwhile, in Mordor on the Potomac, both Democrats and Republicans have chimed in on the one thing they both agree on, and that's perpetual war.
WW III may be percolating at this very moment. Putin's occupation of Crimea, where the Russian Navy maintains its Black Sea bases, could trigger retaliation from NATO. Senator John "Yosemite Sam" McCain, who thinks war is the answer to everything, is giddy with anticipation of US forces invading yet another country most Americans really don't give a hoot about. This crisis is just the latest mess the world must deal with as a result of that "great experiment" known as the Soviet Union. Not only did the communists in power outlaw private property, they also dismissed nationalism as another relic of the past that would be swept away by the modernizing tide of scientific socialism. Crimea was part of Russia since 1783, and Russians are the majority there. But in 1954, as a gesture of good will, Nikita Khrushchev redrew the map and made Crimea part of the Ukraine. After all, socialism, being the inevitable force that it was, would eventually erase all borders, uniting the world proletariat by their economic interests. Borders no longer mattered. But human nature is a stubborn thing. Private property is not only a basic right, but a biological drive. So is loyalty to one's own people. "Scientific socialism" collapsed despite decades of propaganda and attempts to impose it by brute force. So the crisis in the Crimea is the direct result of pretending borders don't matter. They do, and how. Meanwhile, here in the DC Empire, our smug rulers are imposing multiculturalism and open borders on an unwilling population. Seeds are being sown that will bear a bitter harvest. When the inevitable crashes down on our heads, it will be the fault of those who made disastrous decisions in their own "great experiment." The aftermath of the old Soviet empire holds some hard lessons for us, so we better start paying attention. Call it a free preview of things to come.
Ever since the DC ruling elite adopted equality as their official ideology, Americans have been forced to pretend they believe in it. Any perceived differences based on biology, whether sexual or racial, are dismissed as the products of "social constructs." In other words, we're supposed to believe that all apparent inequality comes from entrenched cultural attitudes that need only be eliminated by re-education. Problem is, reality has a nasty way of getting back at those who ignore it. Here's just one example: In 1972, DC issued an edict proclaiming females are just as interested in and capable of participating in sports as males. In response to this edict, American schools were forced to open up competitive sports to girls, and girls were encouraged to do anything and everything boys did. Problem is, girls playing soccer and other sports are unwittingly inflicting damage on pelvises not designed for intense, strenuous activity. Doctors are seeing unusual numbers of teenage girls complaining of hip pain. Oops! Could be that's why tradition, which is based on countless generations of experience, protected the fair sex from things such as rough sports and combat. Just maybe.
"The inability of any society to resist immigration … is a serious weakness, and possibly even a fatal one, in any national society." George Kennan
Millions of Americans were illegally spied on by their own government as they participated in online video chats. The National Security Agency conducted this Stasi-like operation through its British sockpuppets:
Britain's surveillance agency GCHQ, with aid from the US National Security Agency, intercepted and stored the webcam images of millions of internet users not suspected of wrongdoing, secret documents reveal. GCHQ files dating between 2008 and 2010 explicitly state that a surveillance program codenamed Optic Nerve collected still images of Yahoo webcam chats in bulk and saved them to agency databases, regardless of whether individual users were an intelligence target or not. In one six-month period in 2008 alone, the agency collected webcam imagery – including substantial quantities of sexually explicit communications – from more than 1.8 million Yahoo user accounts globally.Yahoo denounced these actions as "a whole new level of violation of our users' privacy." Yes, once again, DC has surpassed all expectations. USA! USA! Or better yet:
Netanyahu: Wrong on Iraq, Wrong on Iran But remember, if you oppose nuking millions of Iranians, you're a white supremacist anti-Semite.

The DC Empire rests on the ideal of universal liberation. It presents itself as a force for good determined to impose its values by force at home and abroad. At home, it uses the power of government to "free" its citizens from the constraints of tradition, such as old-fashioned definitions of marriage. Abroad, DC demands other nations kowtow to its noble ideals - or else. So when Americans question the continuous use of force to reconstruct the world, DC's minions know their very legitimacy is being questioned. Without the Permanent Revolution, there is no need for a vanguard to run it. No wonder Secretary of State John Kerry fears the growing resistance to DC's interventionism. Speaking to reporters, he denounced this trend:
“We are beginning to behave like a poor nation,” Kerry said of Americans’ unwillingness to support ever-larger, ever more calamitous wars the world over. He vowed that the US wouldn’t retreat anywhere in the world. The US spends more on its military than nearly the whole rest of the world combined, and throws billions of dollars in military aid at other nations, subsidizing their own wars. Yet budget concerns have slowed the rate of growth of this spending in recent years, inconveniencing Kerry’s plans to start new wars.Airy appeals to exporting DC's civil rights revolution don't carry much weight any more, and Kerry understands that. So he appealed instead to Americans' economic interests:
Kerry insisted Americans “do not perceive the connection between US engagement abroad and the US economy, their own jobs and wider US interests.”That reminds me of the old joke among engineering students: What is the difference between Mechanical Engineers and Civil Engineers? Mechanical Engineers build weapons. Civil Engineers build targets. DC has made a fortune playing both sides of this scam. It sends in its troops and jets to break things and kill people, then mops up in the reconstruction, insisting on sweetheart deals with the puppet government it props up. Problem is, as we're seeing all too clearly in both Iraq and Afghanistan, that neat little scam isn't working anymore. In Iraq, for example, the autonomous Kurds have made oil deals that bypass Baghdad. In fact, centralized big governments are collapsing all around the world. The puppets in charge cannot control their populations any longer. Regional, historical cultures are re-asserting their rights of self-determination, and are leaving their central governments in the dust - where they belong. John Kerry is scared. And that's the best news we've had in years.
