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 […]

You Think That Thing is a What? A Living, Viable, Human Baby? Are You Blind?

The thing in the video below is not a baby. Granted, it looks a little bit like a baby, what with that head shaped bit, and those sort of limby looking bits, plus some of the other things that babies have. But actually it has been growing for just 20 weeks and so any resemblance to a baby is purely coincidental. The thing in this video may not even be alive. Granted, it does seem to be moving, but there are a lot […]

Blood in the Water or Blood on the Streets? The Reckless Revolutionary Sentiments of Owen Jones

What do you call a man who writes the following: “There’s blood in the water, and the anti-Trump opposition should be in a hunting mood. Michael Flynn, the US national security adviser, is the first major scalp of Donald Trump’s administration, and so soon. This regime is weak. A president who lost the popular vote by nearly three million votes, who has increasingly catastrophic personal ratings, is now embroiled in a major scandal. An opposition that has mobilised the biggest protests in US […]

How to Prevent the Islamisation of Europe: Stop Stopping Children!

Once in a while politicians say something interesting. However, rare as such utterances are, unfortunately most of the really revealing comments get drowned out by the slurry of media commentary focusing on really important things like what trousers someone is wearing or how someone eats a bacon sandwich. Last week saw such an occasion where something revealing was said, and it was almost universally ignored by the media. It occurred at a conference in Malta, and the one making the […]

Fifty Shades of Turning the Clock Back to a Canaanite View of Women

So there I was sitting in the living room with some of my children when a bus went past the window. On the side was an advert for the film, Fifty Shades Darker. Oh great. How happy I am to be living in a society where my five-year-old gets to see such things on buses! Thankfully she didn’t ask any questions. Although I refrained from reading the first instalment of the Fifty Shades saga, I read enough reviews to be […]

Exclusive: How Donald Trump Decides His Foreign Policy

For those of us who saw the psychopathic Mrs Clinton as a gigantic threat to world peace, hearing Donald Trump speaking about “getting along with Russia”, as opposed to wanting to go to war with it, was really rather refreshing and even cause for a faint glimmer of hope that the US might actually be about to abandon its messianic claims over the whole world and settle down to being a proper country that minds its own business. To be fair, there were some […]

“Liberalis-Leftus” Finally Awakens After Eight Years of Hibernation

After eight years of peaceful slumber, in which it has slept on seemingly unaware of the happenings in the world outside its lair, that strange little beast, Liberalis-Leftus, has finally woken from its hibernation to once again lift up its voice in protest at all it deems wrong with the world. For those who have been awake throughout that eight years, it might seem odd that Liberalis has just miraculously rediscovered its voice after so long. However, in its defense, it should […]

Mistaking Baby Food for Meat: How Christians Are Taught to Stay in Perpetual Infancy

Imagine trying to give a baby solid food before it is ready. Not a happy idea, and I don’t recommend trying it. Now imagine giving a grown adult baby food. Kind of a weird thought that one, and again not one that I can heartily recommend. Now imagine one more scenario, but this time after moving their child onto solid food, after a while the parents decide to take him off it, and go back to feeding him breast milk […]

Madonna’s Revolution of Love Has Broken Out and it’s Very Very Angry

It’s an interesting phenomenon that despite the multitude of pop songs over the past few decades encouraging us to love one another more there appears, if anything, to be less love in society than before the love song movement began. Perhaps the problem is that the rest of us just haven’t taken their words seriously enough, and so consequently we have ended up with an increasingly divided, broken society. Whatever the reason, you might think that the results would have […]

The Real Legacy of Barack Hussein Obama: How to Wilfully Start a New Cold War and Get Away With it

Regular readers of this blog will know that I am no great fan of Donald Trump, and I hold my breath to see what on earth his presidency will bring. Nevertheless, being an avid adherent of the Biblical idea that God often raises up fools and worse to act as his wrecking ball against that which is in need of a good wrecking, I am patiently waiting to see whether Mr Trump is — like a Jehu or a Nebuchadnezzar — indeed […]

Are we Witnessing the End of the Managerial Age?

Imagine meeting a man you haven’t seen for a while in the street early in the new year. You exchange “Happy New Years” to one another, and you ask him how he and his family fared during 2016. The man tilts his head slightly, looks you in the eye, and begins: “As a family we’ve grown stronger over the past 12 months. Our combined income has risen by 6%, which is 3% above average for our area of the country. […]

How the Mainstream Media Launders the News

There are generally reckoned to be three stages involved in the process of money laundering. The first is the introduction of money into the financial system. This is known as placement. The second is the attempt to conceal the illegal nature of the funds by carrying out various transactions. This is known as layering. And then thirdly, the launderer makes “legitimate” purchases with the funds they have placed and layered through the system. This is called integration. Put another way, stage one […]

US Intelligence Report is a Series of Hysterical Assertions, Manipulative Propaganda, and Official Obfuscation (SHAMPOO), But it Does Answer the Question of Why Russia is so Big

The recent 25-page report from the US Office of the Director of National Intelligence (DNI), Assessing Russian Activities in Recent US Elections, was billed as the US Intelligence Community’s evidence of Russian hacking of the US Elections. The easiest way of curing yourself of this notion is to go and read the thing (which you can do here), and as you do so, remind yourself that the agencies that put this together only get annual funding of a mere $80 billion […]

The Post-Truth, Pre-Truth Society

As we enter a new year, one thing we can say for certain about the old year is that it was truly breath-taking in terms of unexpected political and geopolitical changes. There was the Brexit vote, a result that the British government and much of the media did just about everything they could to prevent, and were genuinely shocked at the outcome. Then there was the defeat of Mrs Clinton at the hands of Mr Trump, and once again the […]

Obamandias — The Legacy of Barack Hussein Obama

With grateful acknowledgement to Percy Bysshe Shelley, and his great original tribute to hubris, pride and power, Ozymandias.   I met a traveller from the Indispensable Land, Who said—“Have you seen the empty hulk over yonder, That stands in the corridors of power?” Near it, alongside a broken Teleprompter, Half sunk a shattered visage lies, Whose turned up tippy tippy nose, And look of smug Exceptional Superiority from a great height, And sneer of patronising condescension, Tell that its sculptor well […]

2016: The Year the Globalist War on Reality Began to Crumble

One of my favourite quotes of the 21st century is this gem 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 […]
