A sharia-dictator dies (Abdullah), a new sharia-dictator takes power (Salman, above), and the US doesn't just bow, it glorifies (Dempsey, above). 

I know this news is a couple of days old, but I just can't get over it. 

Here's the handout from the US Department of Defense: 

"Dempsey Sponsors Essay Competition to Honor Saudi King" WASHINGTON, Jan. 26, 2015 – The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff has established a research and essay competition in honor of Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah Bin Abdul-Aziz hosted by the National Defense University.

The king, who died Jan. 23 at age 90, oversaw the modernization of his country’s military during the time he spent as commander of the Saudi Arabian National Guard, a position he held from 1963 until he became king in 2005.

While recording the audiobook of American Betrayal, I am occasionally posting sections that challenge the creaky orthodoxy taught, written and perpetuated by "court historians" who continue to avoid incorporating the evidence of the deep and wide Soviet penetration of the US government and other institutions into our general history.    

Today's installment opens with the consensus-challenging work of prize-winning war correspondent and noted military analyst Hanson Baldwin. Indeed, Baldwin's 1949 book, Great Mistakes of the War, proved to be invaluable to the course of my research. In this book, Baldwin examines military mistakes of World War II (thanks to consensus-history betcha didn't...

Long has the sun done set on the enterprise once known as Great Britain -- aka "England, Mother England," as in "Merrie Olde," "sceptered isle" and all that.

With the flag over Buckingham Palace at half staff in national mourning for sharia- dictator Abdullah of Saudi Arabia (a "reformer," a "real progressive," according to Fox News, practically a sufragette), the Telegraph reports that a senior BBC official has deemed that the men who stormed Charlie Hebdo's office and slayed the staff and others are not to be called "terrorists."

At Gates of Vienna, the Norwegian writer Fjordman reports on what he saw in Dresden at the January 15 PEGIDA rally against Islamization. He concludes with customary flashes of insight that illuminate the shared political turf from which multicultural (read: Marx-inspired) elites and forces of Islamization together stand against native populations.. 

I had an interesting discussion with some Scandinavian friends about why PEGIDA started in Dresden in the former East Germany. You can see more veiled Muslim women within five minutes in Berlin, or in a Western German city such as Hamburg or Cologne, than you will probably see during an entire day in Dresden. Dresden is still a European city. So why did protests against Islamization start there? Normal 0 false false false...

As I record the audiobook of American Betrayal, I am rereading the book for the first time since I shipped the corrected manuscript back to the publisher in December 2012. It is also my first careful read since American Betrayal was smeared in an orchestrated attack led by a tiny band of septuagenarian ex-Communists starting several months after it came out in 2013. As I read, I confess to taking extra delight in certain sections that I can now imagine drove such people nuts.

I am thinking...
