Often told, but still few know....."Why Poinsettias, or is it Poinsiettas, or just plain Good Night??"


(1)poinsettia, or (2)poinsetta or (3)Noche Buena?

All those names are correct in the vernacular.

The way El Gringo Viejo learned it?  Number 2
and number 3.... But the official general
 modern-day use in the United States
 is number 1

     It's  beginning to look a lot like Christmas, goes the song, so even those of us who follow the western Orthodox Calendar.... we look around and ask, "So what if it's not even Advent yet?  We can still start looking around for those showy postings and plantings of newly and freshly blooming Ponsiettas.    We tell ourselves, "After the first of the year, this time I am really going to plant some in the back yard, and not buy any more, from now on."
     After several weeks of overwatering, or failure to "remember'' about watering and dropping a little orchid food in their water, the hapless plants tend to wind up in Dempster Dumpsters along with a lot of Christmas gift wrapping material, burned out twinkler lights, and such things.   Sometimes the poor Ponsietta owner wonders why the name of the plant begins with a "capital P".   There is a reason.   But first:

     We find the stemmy plant surprising the monks who were very much involved in plants, edibles, flowers, and horticultural lore among the native groups in New Spain....or what would much later become what we know as Mexico now.   They found it in the Vera Cruz lowlands....warm, steamy, humid, with 60 - 100 inches of rain...they found in the lower mountains and almost up to 9,000 feet along some of the higher passes and where sheltered places could protect them from the cold.
     They found the plant in the dry lands to the north where they had to be watered carefully and on an almost ritualistic basis....and they adorned the patios of the grand casones of the wealthy and the irregular "yards'' of the most common Indian's hovel. 

Large but no record,  16 feet across and 8 feet high
and growing in a normal 
neighborhood, from stems
of 18 inches, being simply stuck into the ground.


     The above picture is repeated in different ways in thousands of places throughout central and southern Mexico as well as much of Central America and the Caribbean.  

     During the earliest days of the Spanish contact and conquest of Meso - America, the friars and others learned that the name of this plant or bush was somewhat depressing....cuitlaxochitl....reduced phonetically into the Spanish from the native Nahuatl language.  Cuitlaxochitl (Kwee lah zoh CHI tl) means any number of variations of "flower that dies", such as death flower or suffering and dying flower.
     The friars liked it more for its surprising quality of beginning to change their leaves from green to bright red....very a very propitious time.    That colour change and  blooming occurs at the darkest time of the year, which to the good fortune of the friars co-incided with major religious events. 
     We proceed.  El Dia de la Aparicion de Santa Maria de Tepeyac (Our Lady of Guadalupe),  de La Fiesta de la Navidad, el Feliz An~o Nuevo and the Epifania constitute a string of high Holy Days and episodes that run from the 12th of December through the 6th of January.   There are numerous celebrations from the Matachines to the Posadas visitations and processions.   Fronds  and Poinsiettas, among other flowering niceties accompany all such events and celebrations.

     Poinsiettas require certain attention, things,
and schedules.   They have to have well-drained
soil, and they have to be allowed to go to dry
between waterings.

   They seem to prefer benign neglect, but
many gardeners swear that Poinsiettas have
to be pinched back one/fourth of their height
on or about Memorial Day and then again on
Labour Day.

    Pray for rain, but water the larger bushes at
least once every two or three weeks. Over-fertilizing
will result in lots of green leaves that do not change

     The story can go on and on.  But, imagine if one of Americas earliest diplomats to Mexico, who also was closely associated with the establishment of the  Smithsonian Institution, also had a hand in the naming and introduction of this, and other wondrous plants into the United States.  It is all true...and in spades.   Joel Roberts Poinsett was the Charge d' Affaires of the American government during the time shortly after the establishment of the Mexican Constitution of 1824 and shortly before the instability of times brought on by the torments of Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna.  He served in Mexico for almost five years.   His feats were similar if not more exhilarating than any James Bond fiction.

     Santa Anna changed sides  in any political argument, more frequently than (Sir Edmund) Hillary.   He had also groomed what would prove to be a core of an Army with the Mexican Army that would strangely seem to follow him from 1829 or so through nearly 1860, no matter how "confused" their leader might have been at the moment.

Joel Roberts Poinsett,
 Renaissance Man, International Meddler
 and Agent for both the United States
 and the Scottish Rite Masonic Lodge,
 brilliant horticulturist, and scientist

       Although Lopez de Santa Anna was a member of the Scottish Rite Masonic Lodge, as was Joel Roberts Poinsett, he was also enrolled as a member of a York Rite Lodge in Vera Cruz.  Santa Anna also changed from Republican Federalist to Centralist and back again several times.   He also served as self-appointed or elected President and Vice-President depending on how much blame needed to be taken and how much rest he needed in his beloved Hacienda El Mango de Clavo de Lencero in Vera Cruz State.

   It behooved Lopez de Santa Anna to reveal to Mexico that Joel Roberts Poinsett and various others involved at high levels of the Mexican government were conspiring to commit acts offensive to the National Integrity of the Republic of Mexico.

   He raised a stink strong enough to manage to successfully accuse Joel of being involved in this terrible conspiracy and managed to have him declared persona non grata, and deported.

     Joel Roberts Poinsett was allowed time to pack his many effects, among them many of his pottings of the Noche Buena flowers so associated with the many Winter parties he had attended.   Many of the Mexican hosts noted his delight with the plant, and had also learned that he was one of America's foremost plant experts and horticulturists, so various of the hosts gave him a good range of sturdy plants.   It is thought that even Lopez de Santa Anna gave him a sample from that hacienda outside of Jalapa, the capital city of Vera Cruz.

    By the end of 1829 he was back in his beloved South Carolina and plotting other adventures.   During his life, he "meddled" in several countries of South America, in every nation of the western 2 / 3's of Europe, always representing the interests of the United States of America, officially and well, as well as tirelessly advancing the code and standards of the brotherhood of Scottish Rite Masonry.   We commend study of his life....a very complex and adventurous life, by all OROGs.

     And that, Virginia, is why we named the Mexican "Noche Buena'', officially and definitively in the mid-1830s by those in charge of official names for strange and interesting things from the Vegetative Kingdom, the "Poinsettia".  (many Southerners still pronounce it "Poinsietta", however)

More later.  I hear the sound of the Cannons!!!

The Anglican Curmudgeon Speaks to the "Refugee Issue"


     We are reluctant to do this re-posting due to the fact that we genuinely know it to be a form of trespassing.  However, while admonishing the OROG community to visit with some frequency the Blogsite of The Anglican Curmudgeon for the purpose of self-edification, it is necessary, at times, to make certain that we show examples of why such visits are worthwhile.   Very Worthwhile.

Mr. A.C. Haley, who is The Anglican Curmudgeon ( writes, unapologetically, unabashedly, and in clear language, the following:

Has America Sold Her Christian Soul?

The ISIS/ISIL/IS (could we please agree on a convention, folks? -- see below) terrorists in Paris have finally pushed America over the top, it would seem.

Well, let the reader decide. Here are just the straight facts:

1. The President proposes to increase the number of refugees authorized to immigrate here by up to 100,000 per year by 2017. This year alone, at least 10,000 will come from Syria.

2. More than 96% of the Syrian refugees the President and the State Department are bringing in identify themselves as Muslim.

3. Since over 70% of the civilian mass murders in recent times have been carried out by Muslims; since ISIS/ISIL/IS proclaims itself to be the re-establishment of the ancient Islamic caliphate; and since ISISILIS (let's just call it that: pronounced I-SIS'-I-LIS, to rhyme with syphilis) has announced its intention to bring Paris-style terrorism to these shores, many Americans think that to bring tens of thousands of Muslims into America from a country where ISISILIS operates is a particularly bad idea.

4. The Republicans in the House, led by their new Speaker Paul Ryan, have introduced a bill that supposedly requires the Government to check all new Syrian emigrants before approving them for travel to the US and resettlement there. The bill is a sham, because its vetting requirements are mostly meaningless, impractical to carry out, and may be evaded with a simple certification.

5. The President, however, is not one to allow the House Republicans to show him up as unconcerned for America's safety. He has announced he will veto the Republican bill -- before he even has seen what it will finally say -- because his administration is already taking the necessary steps to protect usAnd the media, as usual, are right behind him.

6. At the same time, the chief religious denominations in the US are also joining in castigating the Republicans for trying to put limits on the resettlement of Syrian Muslims -- even if some of the immigrants might prove to be terrorists traveling incognito. That is just the price we will have to pay for our upholding Christian principles of charity toward all strangers -- "be not afraid!"

7. Other religious groups and House Republicans -- a definite minority in both places -- point out that it is a little hypocritical for the majority denominations to speak of "simple Christian charity", because it is precisely the Syrian Christians who are being persecuted and driven out of their traditional regions. At the same time, the State Department, pursuant to Obama's direction, absolutely refuses to open up any refugee resettlement slots for Christians.

8. President Obama and the major Christian denominations say that admission to America must never be based on any kind of "religious test" -- regardless of the fact that our immigration laws require that a refugee's religion be taken into account, since one of the most prominent forms of persecution in refugee areas is religious persecution: just as Syrian Christians are, as you read this, being persecuted and driven out of their homes by Syrian Muslims.

9. Evangelical Christians add that they do not need any of their fellow Christians rescued, as they are already "eager to share their faith with [the non-Christian] new arrivals."  So the suffering Christians should apparently just go on suffering, as far as their evangelical brethren are concerned.

10. Meanwhile, as all this takes place, Obama's unilateral changes last year to immigration enforcement policy are allowing over 80% of those already here illegally to stay without fear of deportation.

The end result is that President Obama and his State Department, joined by the media and major Christian denominations, want only Syrian Muslims brought into the country, regardless of their backgrounds. The House Republicans, meanwhile, want to be seen as opposing this policy while also doing nothing  to stop it, or to help Syrian Christians. All of them do not want the immigration laws enforced as written -- if doing so would mean that most Syrian Christians would qualify for resettlement here. The Christians, as a consequence, are left to perish.

As Dave Barry always says, you cannot make this stuff up.
     As we have stated, we do not like re-posting.   We would advise the OROGs, even in this case to visit the Anglican Curmudgeon's blogsite to see the spirited comment section of this particular set of observations made by The Anglican Curmudgeon himself.    The site is normally given over to relatively deep and extremely deep canon law, canon law interfacing with civil and criminal law in the various States and the American union, and matters of Anglican, and what is left of Anglican, and other such Orthodox Christian denominations.
     We consider Mr. Haley's understanding, knowledge, and way of expressing himself to be of the highest order and certainly worthy of all men/women to be received and studied.   He has diverged a bit from his normal commentary and analysis, and edged into the frontier of our own less disciplined and more "overly expressive" and vitriolic way of commenting.
    He has moved from the legal, ecclesiastical, historical Church theatre of concern into the popular political, cultural, and secular historical philosophical zone.  The mire, muck, and tar-pits of present day sociological thinking, political maneuvering, and mud-wrestling are not a befitting place for a person of such stature.  But!!  He joins the fight and conducts himself, as usual, with an intellectual precision and bite that cannot be equalled.

    I call, therefore, his latest posting to All OROGs' Attention,  because it will help all of us and our little grey cells in the processing our natural law and common law understanding of to-day's events. We have provided a link above and here below   so as to further facilitate your access.   We consider it that important and valuable.

We move on to the sound of the cannons.

Bo Snerdly and millions of other realists say, know, and remember these things.... (Second and final installment)

(continued from yesterday's posting)

    And, of course, the inevitable question arises...."Well, if Jim Crow is so much better for the general situation than the Welfare State,  then we suppose you would be comfortable with re-instatement of the segregationist schema."

    The answer is "No" and "Absolutely not".  To a Conservative, rights are granted by the Creator, not by a central, State, or local government.   Even if that government is substantially under the control of those most affected by the actions of that government, there should still be the greatest effort to extend the greatest amount of liberty to the citizen who is otherwise compliant with the laws necessary to provide order and basic public services.

     We would strive to have an environment where a bakery owned by homosexuals could have and enforce the conditions of a sign on the wall that says, "We reserve the right to serve or not serve anyone, no-one, everyone, someone, extra-terrestrials, Eskimos, and/or whoever, at any time, or at no particular time.   We own this bakery, and to the extent possible, we shall run it as we wish."

     We would strive to have an environment where people could refuse to perform work for other people should that work imply a violation of the service provider's discretion to not do things that violate his/her understanding of sacramental or religious, and /or philosophical beliefs.


     The failure of the "uppers'' to re-establish control of society, after Reconstruction  while a lower form of white society assumed the day-to-day oversight and administration of many hundreds of political entities in the South is a fundamental failure of the South.    Frankly, in many cases, local political leaders had neither the breeding nor education to lead what was essentially a rural, feudalistic traditional society into a post-industrial, new reality.   That fact became the  curse of the South.
    The greatest segregation, in many ways, were the Icons and Sacred those days, the old veterans of Confederate service, and those blue-bloods and Plantation people who hid behind the iron gates.    The old soldiers, with their grey garb and fancy golden french officers' scrolls on the sleeves died off,  their uniforms frequently being buried with them.   There were fewer and fewer people left to cajole, direct, scold, or provide blue-blooded "presence", and a fairer arbitrage of the "Negro situation".
     As those people became fewer and fewer, and in the case of the wealthy, more and more distant and "behind the gates", people began to set up laws and regulations that would establish that the White lower classes were legally allowed to tell the Negroes where they had to find a restroom and/or a water fountain.    Prescriptions and assignments were placed around until they transcended the ridiculous.   Trolley cars and busses, restaurants and diners, movie theatres and and stadiums, churches and cemetery lot assignments, all had controls and procedures concerning who would drink, watch, listen, worship, travel, or be buried and when and where.   Most hospitals had segregated emergency rooms, wards, and floors.

     In most places the laws were followed.  In some places, such as southern Louisiana, especially the southwestern part in the Cajun and swamp people country, Negro rules were posted and not followed.   In southernmost Texas there were very few Negroes, and the few there were had close connections with many and diverse people in places like McAllen, Laredo, and Brownsville.   McAllen's school district simply closed the required School for the Coloured, because it was foolish to maintain a separate school for 13 chilluns, when the "all white" schools  (Latin and Anglo) had in those years almost 4,000 urchins.   The Latins and Anglos, all considered 'white' by Texas Law,  were technically not segregated but did attend neighborhood primaries.  But entering Junior High, at the 7th grade forward, everyone went to the same schools.
     My godmother was the one who proposed, as a trustee, the closure of the Coloured School, although to do so would be a violation of State law.   She was elected President of the School Board during the next elections, partly because she had the gumption to get rid of the stupid rule, and because it saved considerable money.   The State of 1952 did not raise an issue with the closure and subsequent assignment of Negroes to standard classes.

    I did not witness these Jim Crow laws except when travelling to points far out of my home area in the Lower Rio Grande Valley.   A semester at LSU in Baton Rouge while staying with my brother and sister-in-law, was an eye opener, but so was New Orleans, where enforcement of segregated eating facilities and the like were should we say.....optional.


     To summarise, it is my opinion that the Abolitionists hastened and forced the issue of Emancipation of the Slaves because they thought they had the moral high ground on a very basic issue.   They also assumed, very broadly, that we in the South just loved having someone to whip and "keep down".   They lived in an industrialised and increasingly industrialising North, where they could trap young Irish children in looming factories and throw these children into the street after they had lost too many fingers to be of further use.
   They lived in a place where race riots broke out against Negroes who would gather in urban places while making their way to some favourable stop on the Underground Railway.   Their hands were stained by the low wages, horrid working conditions, and cut-throatery of the world of the Bankers and Industrialists and the continuously increasing  numbers of wounded and dead factory workers.
     It became a rage....very much like the ridiculous causes among the "progressives" to this day....Equal Pay!!!!  Glass Ceiling!!!!  15.00/hr Minimum Wage!!!!   Black Lives Matter!!!!  Hands Up!  Don't Shoot!!!!
         Further, the worst of the racists were people to whom the progressives and leftists of to-day's American give all adulation and esteem like Margaret Sanger, Franklin Delano and Eleanor Roosevelt, Teddy Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, and the like.

     Southerners who travelled to the North during the antebellum period were often stunned at the conditions under which the northern labour force worked in those days.   They would tell their northern cousins  that, "....if we were to treat our people like this there would be slave riots throughout the South."   In fact, true Slave uprisings occurred, but as a per capita thing, it never reached the level of the labour unrest in the North before and then after the War Between the States.
     Jefferson Davis and his older brother Joseph were part of a movement that was active in the South, concerning self-government by the slaves over matters that directly concerned them.  They established a jury system that actually worked after several false starts (a decision by a jury to give 5,000 lashes for a theft of a number of laying hens, on the first case, for instance).

     As in the case for War against the South, the industrialists and bankers knew that the major financial interests would have to move before the process of manumission would take away the incentive for the argument for abolition.   The number of Negroes gaining manumission, sometimes by will and testament, sometimes because it was just time, and sometimes because, whether the Negro was equal or not the "peculiar institution" was expensive and repulsive and becoming an economic anachronism.
      In the late 1950s and early 1960s, the forces for radical social change knew that the Negro had arrived at a bifurcated choice set.   Keep on with the pleasant Nat King Cole, Platters, and Mills Brothers image and Jackie Robinson, et al and unemployment just slightly higher than the White rate and economic advance moving slowly ahead or take the path of "Freedom Now" and confrontation.
     The left knew that it would win if it could pose the question about the path for the Negro population so that it would seem rational to be confrontational. The Southern Christian Leadership Conference, very much a communist front and provocateur for violent confrontation, also known as "peaceful demonstrations", departed from the staid, establish pastors and Black professionals.   They hoped that they could provoke over-reactions of the "white power structure" and wake up the yahoos and white trash to come out and show the "darkies" how the cow at the cabbage and put them in their place.
      Lamentably, the SCLC and other such groups played their cards better, and involved the press correctly, and managed to play the role of the Pied Piper so as to take the nation off to this mess we have right now.   The SCLC and subsequent black groups, thinking they had accomplished something, perhaps, would soon learn that they were being tooled around by an extreme left-wing group that wanted to convert the Black Race in America into a voting bloc that would support the progressive marxist agenda, and thereby the destruction of American.  
      The most sure and certain way to do this would be to begin a "cattle drive" of the American population of Black African descended peoples into the snake pit of public assistance and all of its helping hands.  It took only two generations of the United  States government spending other peoples' money to bring the bulk of the Black population to the point of servitude.
     Along with that debasing came the good news for the leftist social engineers  and political gurus that black people were killing each other at record levels, black church attendance had fallen as a portion of the black population, even more precipitously than the White cohort of the overall population.   This would mean more and more calls for more and more programmes to address the problems that the previous programmes had caused.    That would keep numerous Democrat Party sacred cows and sacred institutions and the Democrat Urban hegemony safe for at least a little longer.

    Northern elitists, social engineers, bankers, and politicians and a book by the name of Uncle Tom's Cabin hastened the dash to Emancipation, managed to kill a million people on two sides of an issue in a totally useless war, and brought an end to the manumission process that was actually turning Black Folks out of slavery and to solid Freeman status at an increasing rate in 1860.
       After helping to set back true social improvement by 80 to 100 years, the same Northern intellectuals and political charlatans came along just in time to fuel the racial animosity fires so as to discard the actual condition of things in the 1955 - 1960 period, and the solid improvements that were being made in the American and Black American and White American social construct.
   We are facing the fruits of those "improvements" again.   Think of all the falsehoods and falsities of these ghouls who have "led" us for the past seven years.

Bo Snerdly and millions of other realists say, know, and remember these things.... (TWO INSTALLMENTS)


     Bo Snerdly, the only person  (besides Rush's wife) who tells Rush Limbaugh what to do and when to do it was at a confab recently, where Black Folks and White Folks can talk to each other without being shouted down by Arian Nation / KKK nuts, or St. Blatherdoodle Baptist Anti-Fag Church, or Black Lives Matter, or Muslim Brotherhood, or the Obsolete Press.

    It was some kind of meeting with an attendance that could have probably  had people qualified to be  Sons of Confederate Veterans and The Grand Army of the Union folks who did get together and, like Barney and Fred, have a gay old time, where a person could still say the word "gay'' and mean it.

     Mr. Snerdly, who is a large and tough looking Black man spoke with clarity, humour, obvious high intelligence,  and depth.   It was clear that he was born to the heat, complexity, and accuracy of deduction of controlling a massive Caucasian intelligence and ego, a relentless clock, and a listening audience that ranged from the deranged to some of the most astute, and commonly noble and intelligent listening audience on the Planet.  In the control room.....He Rules Everything, inside and out. 

     Part of what set off  El Gringo Viejo to-day is not some left-wing kook blowing his mouth off.   It was Glen Beck, nearing tears again, talking about how we need to get back to those times of solidarity when Martin Luther King, Jr. called for measuring a man by the content of his character and not by the colour of his skin.   Bo Snerdly has an IQ about 30 to 40 points higher than Glen Beck.   (There were no "affirmative action" make-up IQ points added to Glen's score.)

     We reviewed the event and the various commentators, all excellent, but the observations of Mr. Snerdley were profound.   He pointed out that the condition of the Negro, and the relation of said person(s) with other Negros and with the Whites who surrounded them were a lot more pleasant during the those final days of Jim Crow.
      He did not call for those days to return, mind you, but he did point out the fact that in those days, there were all kinds of "better conditions".   Among them, almost all Black Folks counted among their closest friend and confidants....Honkey-type people (actually middle and upper class White Folks).   It suggested those images brought to mind about my Grandma Mamie, who said "....and, well,  the White Folks in the in Tennessee and Alabama, they measured the good of a person by how many of the "old timey" Coloured might be there at the funeral or for the burial (she actually used a word that the spell-check cannot digest - I attempt it here with phonetic tricks - BRRR  ee  yin).

     As usual, I have a thousand, million stories from my Southern maternal grandparents....but Bo Snerdly hit many of them with a carpet bombing of truth.  Mr. Snerdly is not a person who speaks only with words of silver needles and golden threads .... he speaks with words of ingots of iron, and bullion bars of copper, silver, and gold.
      He points out that before the "Civil Rights Movement" (my choosing of the naming of the time, because that is when it occurred and and it is the time that he identified specifically), the edging towards tiredness with the Jim Crow laws...maintained by the White-trash demagogues in the South, and disregarded wherever possible....ONCE AGAIN BECAUSE THE UPPER-MIDDLE AND PLANTATION CLASSES, AS DURING THE DEMISE OF SLAVERY, did not point out the need to follow the ancient admonitions:   Do not kick the sleeping dog.   Allow the mellowing influences of Christianity, as RELee said, to solve this problem of a society of two races forming one citizenship and Nation.

     Bo Snerdly advised all in attendance that during those days up into the 1950s,  with Jim Crow, almost every home of the Black African cohort of the American population, had a mommy and and daddy and beaming children who all looked like David Robinson and C0ndoleeza Rice. Schools were segregated.....much was segregated....but black crime on black people, black crime on white folks .....was much, much, much, much lower than than to-day in terms of events per 100,000 people.   Do not try to catch me on the basis of gross numbers deployed over much lower population numbers.   These are percentages per constant numbers.

     It is reasonably estimated that 85% of all Negroes were in one church or another during the week.  The leaders of the "communities" as we understood the word back then, was the pastor, priest, or preacher-man of the local Orthodox, Protestant, or Evangelical/Pentecostal Church....and the fathers, uncles, grandfathers, and close cousins of the children at the Church picnic.

      Pardon the reference, but solely to back up the observation by Mr. Snerdly, the white/anglo/standard American issue population had a 5% illegitimacy rate in 1950.   The Latin cohort of the population....very small...but also easy to measure, had a 6% rate of miracle babies.    Remember, these were the days when the old biddies with blue hair, and the hair-dressers in the "beauty parlours" who "knew all", and the best friends of the afflicted, counts hours, days, and seconds from the time of the vows 'til the time of the howl in the delivery room.   It was a different time. those "times''....the Negro illegitimacy rate was....tah! dah!:


    What to do?   The Democrats and the social progressives cannot let go of this batch of people they have spawned.   They had  determined, based upon common and basic communistic strike force tactics, to flood a nation with dependent, violent people, so as to destroy that nation.
      This reality is perhaps best demonstrated by the Red Chinese, after Inchon, flooding the masses of people seeking refuge South Korea...people who were leaving North Korea in droves of scores of thousands with fifth column people impregnated within them.  These Trojan Horse "riders" would serve to destabilise both for the moment and long range moles awaiting orders, taking data, observing, and generally aiding the totally psychotic regime to the North.
     Why?   Because they knew the Gringos were reluctant to fire upon masses of Korean civilians who were probably all refugees save for 5 or 10 per cent.   That way they could inflict terroristic murders, car-bombings of "refugee" centres, and cause general havoc behind the lines.
      This is what we see now.  We understand that the "progressives" want to destroy America....and dependency is truly the quickest way.   Food, Medicine, Schooling, Housing, transportation, etc.  all "free";   It  produces a dependent matter the colour or racial extraction....a dependent race that will demand "cake from the bakery when the bread runs out"...or they will burn down the bakery and everything else.

And without droning on forth...we retire.   We leave all of this to the ruminations of truly the highest form of human life, the OROG.

Dear Barry: Why? Why not? We can trust you? You are a confidable person? You are knowledgeable?


   Barry, you "slyly" point out that the Republicans could not stand up to a little questioning by the Obsolete Press at the CNBC-moderated debate.   And in keeping with their "cowardice" , the Republicans are also afraid of ''..three year old children and widows" who are "simply refugees".

     In keeping with the reassurance that "....if you like your plan, you can keep your plan....and if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor...." allow us to inquire a bit upon the following -

    You want us to understand that "....we have a robust vetting programme and procedure....".   This is patently not true.  No one with reasonable assessment exposure remotely believes this.  You are, as usual, blatantly lying.   Your ghoulish, muslim-intertwined White House cadre of mindless cogs in a horrid wheel of treason is repeating Saul Alinsky-inspired invective....and it will not allow this explanation of yours to work.

     We know that the refugees are constituted of 72% males between the ages of 15 and 50.   We can see them, many with hoodies tightly covering identifying parts of the head, in these lines of "refugees" .    We know by polling them,men and women alike, that almost fifty per cent  blame all their problems on Israel and then the Great Satan....the United States of America.

      We know that there have not been any Christians who have thrown Muslims overboard from the "liberty boats" crossing the Mediterranean. But at each point of encounter of big waves, taking on water, or whatever,  Muslims, as if by script, throw any available Christians overboard.   No one will say anything....except for the fact that 15% of Muslims still have souls and have ratted out their Hell-bound brethren.

      The "narrative" of the 15% is somehow "overlooked" by the Obsolete Media.   That same media overlooks the fact that all these men leaving Syria and Iraq and any place they can leave are either (1) cowards unwilling to defend their country (2) just plain cowards  (3) guys who were involved in the drug trade and failed to pay for a load or other transaction  (4) guys who became tired of squalling babies and complaining, bitchy wives, and who were not man enough to take control of their women, children, and social condition, (5) criminals trying to escape common warrants from Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the Emirates, Bahrain, etc.  (6) assignees by the "board of directors" of ISIS to join fellow jihadists in Europe and the New World to slaughter as many infidels and heretics as possible.

     If these people need refuge, let them take it near their homes with a guard from NATO and/or the "Euroforce" refugee camps.   Their hidey-hole should not and must not be the American, nor the Mexican or Central American, nor the Canadian Hinterland.   We see the cultural and sociological rot and cancer they bring with them in Belgium, France, Germany, Sweden, Denmark, everywhere they go...filth and disorder, sloth and violence.
    They immediately convert to the filth, wee-weeing in the joint-crack on the trunks of motor-cars of gentiles and Jews, to the abuse and brutalization of their own women and girls and any other Gentile women within reach, the private parts of whom they abuse and brutalise, and the graffiti, garbage, unbathed conditions, vandalism,  surliness, riots, etc.
     They do these things because of a well-deserved sense of inferiority.  That sense of inferiority is blamed upon us,  those who are the normal.   And our accusers are the Jihadists and their main ally, Barry, (Sir Edmund) Hillary, and the Obsolete Press.

Extreme Central Texas forwards a military / Pentagon Analyst's assessment of the estrogen poisoning of the American Military:


The Kool Aid Kings and Queens of the Pentagon

   It seems nearly every day that the Pentagon is talking to the American people in double, triple and quadruple speak. The truth is a fugitive, on the run from numerous admirals, generals and cabinet members who distort reality and who are sucking down enough Kool Aid to fill Chesapeake Bay.
According to the Pentagon, the air war against ISIS is successful, combat in Iraq is non-combat, women can make it through Navy SEAL training and 50 Special Forces soldiers can retake Syria.
Who’s running the Pentagon now?  Charlie Sheen?

Without further ado, the Pentagon Kool Aid dramatis personae:

Secretary of Defense Ash Carter – Ash and Trash Carter has a lot of degrees in physics and a ton of experience loitering around various bureaucratic water coolers. Sadly, the man has no military experience, which makes him the perfect choice to carry the Obama administration’s social experiment torch. Carter has already been behind a few idiotic statements such as the Delta Force “non-combat, combat” and his decision or his willingness to go along with Obama’s decision to send just 50 Special Forces guys into Syria.
      Maybe the guy who knows how to tune the Enterprise’s warp speed conductor should be down at NASA instead? Just a thought…
     Carter’s a nice guy and that’s another problem. There’s no one at the Pentagon or in the Beltway with the toughness to stand up to the marauding White House Visigoths. When asked last week, about the Marines’ study that showed that women can’t hack it in the infantry and his impending decision in January to authorize women in the combat arms, this was Ash and Trash Carter’s response in a nutshell.
     “I have received the study and it is being evaluated currently and the decision process is ongoing and therefore no results have been obtained or decided and therefore I can’t answer that question because it’s in the system and moving forward and I will evaluate the information concurrently as the situation unfolds and the details are presented to me.”
Whiskey, Tango, Foxtrot?

Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus – In the Oxford English Dictionary under “idiot” it says, see Ray Mabus. Mabus is another of Obama’s willing destroyers of the macho, male culture in the military. You know the culture that wins wars and protects us all. In a recent Washington Post OP-ED, Mabus wrote that war has mellowed so much since 1992 that women should be allowed to serve in the combat arms. I guess he forgot about Fallujah, Tal Afar, Sadr City, Tora Bora, Ramadi and a thousand other battles that the Marines and the Army won the old-fashioned way, by riflemen taking and holding ground and killing bad guys.
In the same OP-ED, Mabus said that diversity of thought, technology and creative thinking can win wars now. Mabus went on to write about four female Marine officers who figured out how to scale an eight foot wall and because of this, women should be allowed to serve in the infantry. Mabus refuses to look at the Marines’ recent study that concluded women will be ill-suited in combat. I cannot remember a Secretary of the Navy that was as disliked by the Marines as Mabus is.

Former Secretary of the Army John McHugh – “I’m an ordinary guy, burning down the house…” McHugh’s tenure of destruction at the Pentagon ended this week. He spent his last month in office, stalling Congressman Steve Russell and his request for the Ranger School records of the female graduates. When the stalling stopped, the shredding started. McHugh escaped out of a latrine back window just as Russell was kicking in the front door with an impending congressional investigation of the Army’s conduct and special treatment of women at Ranger School.

Secretary of the Army Eric Fanning – “We are family, I got all my soldiers with me.” Who else, but the man who chaired the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund would Obama choose as the next Secretary of the Army. Fanning is another lackey like Mabus, who is in place to ensure that the Army is destroyed by the Great Social Experiment. While most Americans view homosexuality with indifference, the concept of open homosexuality in the military is most certainly detrimental to unit cohesion, morale and fighting spirit. Under Fanning, the Army’s motto has gone from “This We’ll Defend” to “Not that there’s anything wrong with it!” How did Obama’s decision process work on this one? Paul Lynde; funny, but gone; Charles Nelson Reilly, ditto; Truman Capote, checked out. Let’s see, who’s left, Nathan Lane; no sir, booked on Broadway. Okay, how about Fanny? No sir, that’s Fanning. Call her. No sir, Fanning’s a him. What’s the difference? There’s no such thing as genders anyway. Yes sir, dialing now.

And, then there’s Debbie…
Secretary of the Air Force Deborah Lee James has been Secretary of the Air Force for almost two years and during that time, she has been responsible for bringing in the over-priced, under-performing F-35 and running out the old reliable, A-10. She’s also leading the charge on ending the ban on trans-genders in the Air Force. Why do I have a mental picture of Caitlyn Jenner flying a B-17 in an evening gown? But, hey, we don’t want to offend anyone. Not that there’s anything wrong with it!

Rear Admiral John Kirby – “It’s a beautiful day at the Pentagon, a beautiful day for smoke and mirrors…would you be mine, ISIS, could you be mine?” Rear Admiral Kirby, aka Mister Rogers, is now at the State Department or Foggy Bottom, which is perfect for him, since he was running the Pentagon fog machine for a couple years before he took the trolley over to State. During his tenure as Pentagon spokesman, Kirby told the world on a daily basis how well the air campaign against ISIS was going. Now, El Kirbo is tap dancing his way through daily State Department briefings, which includes painting a portrait of Hillary Clinton as Mother Theresa instead of Ma Barker.

General (Ret.) Martin Dempsey  – “You’re here, there’s nothing I fear and I know that my retirement benefits will go on…” Dempsey, the former Captain of the US Army Titanic is gone, but never forgotten is the list of damage done to the Army during his tenure, The man Senator John McCain called, “The echo chamber of the Obama administration,” said not a peep as the US Army was used as the Obama administration’s personal, pet social experiment. Dempsey’s legacy also consists of his famous non sequitur, “If women can’t meet military standards, the Pentagon will ask does it really have to be that high?”
     Dempsey is currently floating away on a wooden pallet as the US Army Titanic plunges into the cold depths of the Potomac.

General Mark Milley – “Silver wings on his chest, but drinking Kool Aid, with the rest…” The new Army Chief of Staff has lots of grunt and SF experience, but he’s already drinking and bathing in Kool Aid. He was down at Benning congratulating female grads Griest and Haver on a job well earned at Ranger School and smiling for the cameras and the press. Stay tuned for more from Willie Milley. I particularly enjoyed his hogwash commentary about the current state of the Army now. I guess they all have to say stuff like this.
      “We have the most skilled, ethical, and combat hardened Army in our nation’s   history. I am honored to lead this remarkable team.”
      Mussolini was probably telling his own army they were the most skilled, ethical,  and combat hardened army in Italy’s history as the British ran them out of North Africa.
     It’s certainly the most technologically advanced Army. Skilled; yes, in light infantry for another war against the Taliban or Al Qaeda in Iraq, but what happens when we have to go against the Russians or an Iranian armored corps? Whoops. According to Colonel Gian Gentile, the US can’t even field a heavy BCT now. Cavalry squadrons can’t run a range and soldiers with armor MOS’ barely know how to load a main gun round. Ethical; certainly, the troops are pretty ethical, but the Army’s senior leaders aren’t. How can they be? They’re lying to themselves and the nation on a daily basis. Combat hardened; yes, but many have left and who remains as the leadership of the Army now? The rubber men of Arlington, who bend and bow to every insane whim floating through the air, that’s who.

General Joe Dunford is the last hope for the country and the US military. 

(Thank God a Marine is the Chairman of the JCS)

Perhaps Dunford can save the military.   Maybe Dunford will make the Marine final stand against females being shoved into the combat arms. Maybe Dunford will stop it all. Maybe, maybe, maybe…
     At least having a Marine in charge gives you hope. The Navy, the Air Force and finally, the Army have been taken to the spay and neuter service module and placed the now no longer used organs in mason jars at the bottom of a 10,000 foot mine shaft.
     The perfumed princes and princesses at the Pentagon have (willingly) forgotten that the military exists for one sole reason, TO WAGE WAR on sea, on land and in the air. It is not, nor has it ever been a repository for every crackpot cultural Marxist scheme cooked up in the twisted confines of a Berkeley coffee house.
       Saying nothing and playing along may seem like the best decision for your career and your retirement benefits, but unless you are insane, which I know you’re not, you must know that the decisions you are making and the horse dung and hay you’re espousing are hurting the military and your country every day. The policies you help implement are not progressive, but rather suicidal for the nation and its defense.
     History will judge you one day, ladies and gentlemen, and the judgment won’t be a favorable one. You will one day be viewed as the people who betrayed America’s national security for the greater glory of yourselves.

Until that day comes, Kool Aid is available on tap at the Pentagon.
