The Colour Revolution Returns Home as the Mob Sniffs the Whiff of Anarchy

When I watched the following video for the first time, one word kept on flitting it’s way in and out of my mind: Demented. Judge for yourselves:     There they are shouting and spitting and kicking at a statue. A statue! As they do so, no doubt they’re congratulating themselves on their goodness, tolerance and liberal values, not to mention their enlightened views. Is this Monty Python? It’s almost comedic, until it hits you that the line between people doing […]

Charlottesville and the 200% Guilt Pie

I want to say a few things about what happened in Charlottesville, but before I get there I want to first set the scene by talking about one of the most egregious errors of the modern world, which is the misunderstanding of how guilt is apportioned. Let’s begin by imagining a squabble between two siblings. We’ll call them Joseph and Sam. They are arguing over a toy, and eventually Joseph snatches it, even though it belongs to Sam. Unhappy that […]

Fire and Fury? Or Dumb and Dumber? The New Hollywood Blockbuster Featuring Captain Trump and Other Assorted Megalomaniacs

Regular readers may be aware of my fondness for recalling these words from George W. Bush’s Senior Advisor and Deputy Chief of Staff, Karl Rove: “We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality – judiciously, as you will – we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors…and you, all of you, will be left to […]

Rebekah Brings Blind, Backslidden Isaac to Repentance

I had some good comments on my piece about Esau the other day, and once again I thought it would be helpful to post one of my responses which was fairly lengthy, but which is worth an airing here as it will probably prove to be quite surprising, and more than a little thought-provoking to anyone interested in such things.   So here’s a summary of the questions, which were once again posted by Phil:   When Esau sold his […]

Esau’s Repentance? Ain’t Worth a Mess of Pottage!

One of my regular readers, Phil, posted a comment at the bottom of a recent piece, with some great questions on the nature of repentance and God’s judicial hardening. I promised I would try to answer these questions as best I could, but since my response has turned out to be really rather long, rather than posting it on the comment section of that piece, where no-one except Phil will read it, I though I’d post it as a separate […]

Exclusive Excerpt From Hillary Clinton’s New Book, “What Happened? They Stole it From us, Precious”

Chapter 1 — How her right to rule was stolen The creature Rodham had once believed herself to be in possession of a secret treasure that had been her birthright from long ago: the right to rule them all. It was the one thing she loved, her “precious”, and she had thought of it and talked about it often, even when it was not with her. And yet just at the moment when she believed it to be within her grasp, […]

From Servants of the People to Servants of the Agenda

As a resident of Salisbury, I was interested to see a number of – shall we say – agenda-driven Tweets this week, from an organisation calling itself “Wiltshire Police”. There was this, for instance: “Hate has no home in Wiltshire. Report anything that makes you question if you’re being treated fairly #999WhatsYourEmergency”. Anything? My children were particularly pleased to see that. They often find themselves to be the apparent victims of terribly unfair treatment, such as not having the same […]

More Transgender Rights? No, its Only the Death of Meaning, Dear!

So here we are on the cusp of gaining the “right” to alter our own birth certificates to change the sex that the midwife proclaimed when we exited our mother’s womb. Midwives? They know nothing. For millennia they have had the audacity to look between the legs of newborn babes and declare them to be boys or girls, solely on the basis of certain anatomical features. All about transgender rights is it? No. It’s the latest in a long line […]

Sensational Report: Is Russiagate a Hoax Ordered by Vladimir Putin?

By the Washington Post’s Russiagate correspondent, Russell O’Phobe (Warning: This piece may contain traces of satire) For almost a year, Russia’s meddling in last year’s election, along with collusion with the Trump campaign, have dominated the political and media landscape. But an explosive new classified report produced by US intelligence may be about to blow apart the narrative, and reveal an even bigger story that has been missed in all the commentary so far. The report was set up to […]

You Know What You Remind me of Man? A Beautiful Painting Daubed in Graffiti and in Need of a Work of Restoration

I recently engaged with someone on a comment thread under one of my articles for The Conservative Woman, on a point which is — in my experience — a very common response to Christianity. The commenter said that Christians seem to claim a monopoly on doing good deeds, and he then went on to mention that although he is not religious, he both believes in doing good and actually does it. Since this is such a common response to Christianity, […]

Our Implacable and Unmerciful Commitment to Tolerance

In the second half of the first chapter of his epistle to the Romans, the Apostle Paul gives a grim picture of what happens when a society that once had some knowledge of God rejects him. One of his major themes is that their view of sex and sexuality becomes horrendously skewed (sound familiar?), but he also gives a list of the sorts of attitudes and behaviours society will experience in their wilful rejection of God. Amongst other things, he […]

Too Much Exceptionalism Hath Made the US Elites Mad

What kind of person really wants to see relations between the world’s biggest nuclear armed countries deteriorate? Who wants to see the situation between the US and Russia, which has become at least as dangerous as the Cuban missile crisis of 1962, get even worse? Or to put it another way, who would not welcome a genuine dialogue between the leaders of these two great countries? The answer to these questions is of course those who have completely lost their […]

Chuck Schumer Unwittingly Reveals That There is no Hard Evidence of Russian Interference in the 2016 US Election

During the meeting between Presidents Trump and Putin, Mr Trump apparently raised the issue of alleged Russian meddling in the US election last year. According to Rex Tillerson, Mr Putin asked Mr Trump if he could produce some evidence to prove the claim. Mr Trump was unable and, according to both Mr Tillerson and then Mr Putin at a later press conference, Mr Trump was satisfied. But of course not everyone was. The idea of Mr Trump accepting or even appearing to accept Mr Putin’s […]

The United States Just Admitted the Real Reason it Opposes Russia — It’s Own Commitment to Lawlessness

Here’s an extraordinarily interesting statement from the start of a new Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) report, which sets out the goals of the American military: “Washington seeks to promote a multi-polar world predicated on the principles of respect for state sovereignty and non-interference in other states’ internal affairs, the primacy of the United Nations, and a careful balance of power preventing one state or group of states from dominating the international order.” Sounds good? I mean, surely there can’t be […]

The Modern’s Creed

We believe in one God, Ourselves, the Almighty, makers of heaven on earth, of all that is now and future. We believe in one correct ideology, Tolerance’n’Diversity, the only acceptable thought system, begotten by us after all ages (of patriarchal oppression); Good from the Intrinsically Good, Light after eons of Darkness, true Tolerance from the truly Tolerant, of one being with Ourselves. Through it all things have been remade. For us and our own self-justification, it came down to cast […]

Ofsted Sets New LGBTQWERTY Benchmark for Outstanding Education

Warning: This piece may contain traces of satire Ofsted inspectors have awarded an Outstanding grade for a school in Hackney, North London, despite its pupils getting poor GCSE grades. Égalité House, which was established in 2012, saw only three of its 129 pupils achieve A grades in maths and two in English last year, and a total pass rate for both subjects of less than 30%. Yet despite the low grades, along with what inspectors noted as “the poor quality of […]

The Pornification of Society – Part 2

­In the first part of this piece, I looked at the issue of pornography in society. In this piece, I want to look at the issue more at the level of the individual, firstly seeking to understand what drives people to use it, and then going on to look at the remedy for those who are users. If I were to do a sample of readers to ask what they think is the driver behind pornography, my guess is that […]

Napoleon’s Puppies Come Down From the Loft

It’s been fun learning over the past week or so that I am an extremist. I hadn’t previously considered myself to be one, but it’s now been pointed out so many times over the past few days, by certain young left-leaning folks, that I can no longer be in any doubt. In fact I assume that I, along with other like-minded people, must now just wait for the powers-that-be to start issuing little badges with the letter “E”, in order […]

Another Chance to Decide Who Gets to Manage Our Civilizational Circling of the Drain

So there’s a general election in Britain tomorrow, and as usual at these events I shall find something more profitable to do with my time than going to mark an X on a piece of paper. Apathetic? Not me. Readers of this blog may have picked up that I am rather interested in politics, and I would love nothing more than to be able to go out and pledge my support for a genuinely conservative party. But since no such […]

A “Denier” Explains the Logical Fallacies of the Man-Made Climate Change Hypothesis

Mr Trump’s decision to pull out of the Paris Climate Agreement provoked a strong, if entirely predictable reacton from the global elites, the media and millions of ordinary folks who presumably believe, with all sincerity, that his actions are going to lead to environmental Armageddon. They have also seen a resurgence in those dread insults, “denial” and “denier” – words once used almost exclusively to describe those who deny an actual historical fact, namely Adolf Hitler’s policy of exterminating Jews […]

That Gigantic Fraud They Call the “War on Terror”

Just over two years ago, 21 Christians were beheaded by Islamists in that haven for terrorists, Libya. The question that haunted me at the time was this: Would they have been murdered if we hadn’t helped to topple Colonel Gaddafi? And now two years later, in the aftermath of 22 people being blown up by an Islamist terrorist in Manchester, my question is essentially the same: If we hadn’t intervened in Libya to topple the leader and produce a failed […]

The Pornification of Society – Part 1

This is a slightly amended version of my latest piece for Samaritan Ministries International Some subjects are a joy to write about. Others not so much. The topic in this piece most definitely fits into the latter category, yet it has become such a massive issue in recent years that it can hardly be ignored. In recent weeks, I’ve come across what seems like a multitude of articles on the subject of pornography, especially articles focused on the fact that […]

How to Get the Deep State off Your Back … For a Day or Two

Back here I wrote the following: “If you were to draw a graph of the coverage of the Trump / Russia story in the mainstream media over the past few months, you would notice two very striking features. One would be a significant dip in the number of stories around the issue after the first week in April. The second would be a significant increase in stories around the end of April, beginning of May. Now why would that be?” […]

Madness Grips the Imperial City

That the US political system is in the grip of collective madness ought to be obvious to anyone who has been looking at what has been going on in Washington DC for the last few years. It has been present for some time now, but was to a certain extent hidden under the cover of some fig leaf or other – “nation-building”; “responsibility to protect”; “the war on terror”; “some other slogan”. But in the past few years, and especially […]

Hillary Clinton in The Resistance … and Other Philosophical Questions

    PS. Just in case you don’t know what the Clinton meme is referring to, the woman who epitomises the Globalist oligarchy has now returned from her walk in the woods to style herself as a champion of “The Resistance”. Go on laugh. Laugh out loud, it’s so absurd. PPS. Silly me, but I’ve just realised the answer to the riddle. Since Mrs Clinton has been talking a lot about walking in the woods a lot, and since there is a […]

Nuts to Impeach Nut After Nut Fired Nut When Nut Refused to Drop Nuts Conspiracy After Nut Won Election Against Nut?

A couple of months ago I had a bet with a friend that Mr Trump would not be President by the end of the year. Nothing substantial. Just a token £0.01. Right now, I would say that bet is looking more certain by the hour, or you might say with every passing Tweet put out from the “leader of the free world”. In many ways that’s an appropriate title for Mr Trump. That’s because he represents perhaps better than anyone […]

Has Donald Trump Just Started the Beginning of the End of His Presidency?

I gave my thoughts yesterday on how the Deep State is closing in on Donald Trump, forcing him either to comply with their demands or be destroyed. Within minutes of writing that piece came the news that he had fired the Director of the FBI, James Comey. It took a while for me to process the impact that this will have, but now that I have, I believe that his actions mark the beginning of the end of what will […]

The Deep State Net Closes in on Mr Trump

Updated at the bottom in the wake of the firing of James Comey If you were to draw a graph of the coverage of the Trump / Russia story in the mainstream media over the past few months, you would notice two very striking features. One would be a significant dip in the number of stories around the issue after the first week in April. The second would be a significant increase in stories around the end of April, beginning […]

The Emperor’s Old Clothes

Once upon a time there was an Emperor who was very rich, very vain, and exceedingly foolish. In his country emperors were elected every four years, and because many of the people had become tired of voting for Emperor after Emperor, only to find that the new one wore the same clothes as the last one, he promised that if they voted for him, he would wear a new set of clothes. “Vote for me,” he said. “I’ll put on […]

Drawing Conclusions Without Evidence is a Dangerous Game

This is my latest piece for Samaritan Ministries International Imagine a game of Cluedo where instead of sitting down to play by the rules – going from room to room, eliminating suspects, places and weapons – the players start making accusations and counter-accusations before a move has been made. One player says it must have been the Reverend Green, because he is known for his religious extremism. Another reacts to the charge by calling the first player a Christophobe. Still […]

Fancy Being Pushed Into Another War on Yet Another Phoney Pretext?

One of the most basic duties of any Government is to maintain a military that is capable of defending the country against foreign aggression. However, an equally important Governmental responsibility is to ensure that this military is only used when it is absolutely needful. A responsible Government is one that takes every step it can to avoid war, only engages when necessity compels it to, and when all other options have been exhausted. It would be good if these words […]

Finding the Real Jesus on Resurrection Sunday

It is no exaggeration to say that Jesus is the most (wilfully) misunderstood and (wilfully) misquoted person in history.  At no time is this more clearly seen than around Easter and Christmas, when people who normally show no interest in him come forward to use him as a figurehead for their particular social or political cause. One Tweet I saw, for example, claimed that “Jesus was a radical whose anti-greed message of peace & love scared Establishment of his day.” […]

Trump Takes the Cake: That Awful Moment When it Really Hits You That the World’s Most Powerful Country is run by the World’s Stupidest Man

I am rarely lost for words. I am close to it now. If you haven’t already seen the exchange between the man posing as a President, and a woman posing as a journalist asking “tough questions” over his Syrian bombing adventure, you need to see it. It is beyond parody. It is beyond jaw-dropping. It is beyond embarrassing. You need to see it to know the calibre of the man who is now sending an armada to the Korean peninsula, […]

Congratulations Flood in to Donald Trump From Around the World After His Attack on Syria

Mr Trump’s hit on Syria last week may have been met with utter dismay from many who voted for him, but it has been a big hit with many former opponents. In another Blogmire exclusive, we can reveal some of the letters of congratulations Mr Trump has received from around the world. Dear Donald, I just wanted to let you know that I’m really very sorry for some of the things I said about you in the past. I must […]

Donald J. Swamp: How the Man Who Promised to Drain the Swamp Got Drained by the Swamp

There were only three reasons that a rational person might have considered going out to vote for Donald J Swamp. The first was that he wasn’t the psychopath, Hillary Clinton. The second was that he looked to be the least likely of all the candidates to start a war with Russia and therefore WWIII. And the third was that he said he was going to “drain the swamp”. They were always very thin reasons. As I wrote back here and here: […]

Chemical Weapons Again and Why Our Loss of Reason May End up Leading us Into a Huge and Devastating War

One of the signs that we in the West have, as a people, lost the ability to reason is the increased tendency to rush to judgement whenever a catastrophic event occurs. We saw it a few weeks back when a man called Khalid Masood drove a car into people on Westminster bridge, killing three and injuring many more, before stabbing PC Keith Palmer to death. Within minutes of the attack, it was said to be a terrorist attack, linked to ISIS, […]

People With Down Syndrome in “Civilised” Denmark Almost Extinct

Here’s one of those moral dilemmas. There are three people in a room. They all have the same medical condition and are in fact the last people alive who have it. It is by no means life-threatening, nor is it contagious, and its main symptoms are physical growth delays and varying degrees of intellectual disability. There is, however, currently no cure for it. Someone enters the room and tells you that they have found a cure, which they are going […]

Rebuilding Communities From the Ashes – Part 2

In the first part of this piece, I wrote about how the West, having largely escaped the individual-crushing ideology of communism, has instead been busy building a culture based on another unbiblical ideology – individualism. Although it has not led to gulags or political prisoners, its rotten fruits have been manifesting themselves in increasingly obvious ways over recent years. One of the most obvious has been loss of community. As Henry Van Til taught us, culture is religion externalized, and […]

There are Three Kinds of Lies: Lies, Damned Lies, And Lies That Could Lead to a Conflict With a Nuclear-Armed Country

Part of me had wondered just how long the neocon fanatics and their legion of useful idiots could keep up the whole Russian hacking, Russian aggression, “Russia is trying to undermine our democracy/way of life/economy/fill in the blank with any garbage you like” meme? The whole thing is so wearyingly tiresome, not to mention dangerously stupid, that the optimist in me had hoped that at some point even those who have perpetuated this nonsense for so long would get fed up […]

Sales of Paracetamol up as the English Language Undergoes a Sex-Change

I came across a new word the other day. Themself. I chanced upon it quite by accident after happening to see a story about someone called Jack Monroe who had apparently been awarded a sum of money in a court case against Katie Hopkins. The case itself intrigued me about as much as statistics on 17th century wool production, but what caught my eye was that Jack didn’t appear to look very much like I’d expect a Jack to look. […]

It’s Okay, it’s Just the Good Guys Spying on You

Just imagine that an international whistleblowing organisation released a huge number of files about the FSB (successor to the KGB), containing details on their eavesdropping capabilities which would make George Orwell’s eyes bulge. Just imagine that the files revealed they could spy on anyone, anytime, anywhere. They could do it through your computer. They could do it through your phone. They could do it through your SatNav. Oh, and they could even do it through your fridge. And just imagine […]

#ADayWithoutAWoman and #ADayWithoutACarnationWrappedinCellophane

Once upon a time, not so long ago, women used to cherish the idea of bringing up children, raising a family, and providing a safe and loving environment for their loved ones. Then the Cultural Marxists, who hated the idea of women bringing up children, raising a family, and providing a safe and loving environment for their loved ones, embarked upon a campaign to turn those women into men-hating tax slaves who would dump their children in day orphanages and […]

Only Willing Serfs Could Possibly Accept the State Giving “Relationship Education” to Four-Year-Olds

According to popular legend, if you place a frog in boiling water it will immediately jump out, whereas if you put it in cold or tepid water and then gradually turn up the heat, it will stay until it is eventually boiled to death. Simmering Frog Syndrome is often used as an analogy to show how people react rather quickly to sudden change, whereas if you spread the change out over time they don’t notice. The analogy is a good […]

On Telling the Difference Between Historic Anglicanism & ISIS: Clue – One Does Baptisms, the Other Does Executions

If you happened to visit my church on a Sunday, here is what you would find: a group of people of all ages – we don’t do age segregation – participating in a worship service in the historic Anglican tradition. After the service you would enjoy coffee and tea, along with plenty of fellowship and laughter. If you happened to turn up on the first Sunday of the month, we would ask you to join us for lunch – an […]

Overwhelming Evidence of Russian Interference in 2016 Election for Pugley Mayor, Says Former Councillor

By Theblogmire’s resident Russia expert, Russell O’Phobe. There is “clear evidence” that Russia interfered directly in the 2016 mayoral election in the town of Pugley, one of the candidates has said. Speaking to a gathering of local councillors, Brian Arkwright, the loser in last year’s election, told them that the election had been “compromised by Russian infiltration”. The former town councillor’s comments came after it emerged that a number of councils may have also been the target of cyberattacks during the […]

Rebuilding Communities From the Ashes – Part 1

There have been a growing number of books on the market in recent years which touch on the themes of community and place. Some of these books have sold extraordinarily well. Just to give a couple of examples, J D Vance’s Hillbilly Elegy and James Rebanks’s The Shepherd’s Life have both sold in their millions and reached the top of bestseller lists. Both books are said to be unlikely hits. But is it so extraordinary that these sorts of books […]
