Our dear leaders (and their media pundit hangers-on) are very worried about ISIS terrorists escaping from the Kurdish prisons in northern Syria and somehow getting back to Europe.
It was no problem last time around. When ISIS actually attacked civilian targets in Europe, our leaders and their media pundit hangers-on bravely told us to do...nothing. Cuz Islamophobia. Or something.
They also told us to give welfare payments and jobs to returning ISIS "fighters". So why are they suddenly so afraid now?
Note also that these people really want to overthrow Assad in favor of Al-Qaeda (i.e. an organization only slightly more civilized than ISIS). Their support for a Communist Kurdish guerilla in northern Syria feels a bit forced...
Also, our dear leaders and pundits are very angry at Erdogan for threatening to send 3 million refugees to the European Union. But why is *that* suddenly a problem? They didn´t have any trouble giving asylum to the 3 million Erdogan, Iran and Afghanistan sent five years ago!
I think I know what´s really going on here. Look at the pic above and draw your own conclusions. Clue: Yes, they simply want to embarass Donald Trump, neither more nor less.
The world they really want is a open border dystopia with terrorists killing our children, lower taxes for the rich and the corporations, "green austerity" and higher taxes for the rest of us, and a caliphate in Syria living off American blood money.
I´ve seen through your filthy lies, dear leaders and pundits, and if you think I´m going to vote for any of your false candidates in any future election...think again!
Hell, I might even riot.
I happen to think that US troops should stay in northern Syria. But then, I´m not a revolutionary hard leftist of the anarcho-Antifa type.
So how do *they* justify the cooperation between the SDF and the US military? Isn´t there something positively *weird* about a Soviet republic defended by Donald Trump´s troops? Clown World indeed...
Perhaps the Antifas will sleep better if and when the SDF Murray Bookchin Brigade will unite its forces with Bashar Assad and the Hizbollah. Then the Kurds will once again be firmly in the anti-imperialist camp.
Perhaps they owe Orange Man some thanks.

The Chuvash language (spoken in Chuvashia, a "republic" within the Russian Federation) is fascinating. I almost fell from my chair when I heard this clip for the first time, screaming something incoherent about Pan-Turanianism being true. LOL!
Seriously, though, to an outsider Chuvash does sound like a mixture of Turkish and Finnish, although the presently accepted theory is that it´s an Oghuz Turkic language later influenced by the Uralic-speaking neighbours of the Chuvash people.
Well, at least we finally found the origins of that Turko-Finnish starship trooper mentioned in one of Heinlein´s classical novels. So he was Chuvash all this time...

“Mäster Fritz. En svensk mystiker” (or “Mäster Fritz.” with a dot at the end) is a peculiar work by Åke Åredal, of whom relatively little is known. The book is only available in Swedish. I honestly don´t know how to review it without sounding unnecessarily harsh on both the author and his chosen topic, but the tome *is* very, very strange.
Åredal claims to have discovered a spiritual master, a certain Master Fritz (Mäster Fritz in Swedish). His real name was Fritz Olofsson. He was born in 1929 and died in 2008. Åredal hardly met him and spoke to him over the phone only once. Thus, the book is based on reminiscences of other people. He also exegetes Fritz Olofsson´s only book, “En mystik troslära” at some length. Clearly, Åredal was touched by Master Fritz, but even his sympathetic portrait of the man and his work cannot hide the fact that Olofsson was – by all standard metrics – completely insane.
Olofsson was probably heavily autistic. He had very little social life, spent most of his waking hours procuring and reading rare books on mysticism, walked in a weird way oblivious to the outside world, and constantly showed up at public examinations of doctoral candidates in Uppsala, where he pestered all and sundry by long-winding interventions about mysticism. The Uppsala university library eventually banned him from borrowing any more books (he borrowed too many) and the local vendors didn´t like him either, since he insisted on reading every magazine at the newsstand without paying for it. It seems he even read soft porn mags, and had a childish infatuation with “The Phantom”. Olofsson was completely incapable of taking care of himself, including basic things such as washing, grooming or ironing shirts. According to Åredal, Master Fritz lived in a permanent “mystical state” since around the age of 30. I don´t rule out anything, but alternative explanations do come to mind, including some kind of kundalini-like psychotic break (compare U G Krishnamurti). His constant repetitions of mantras as he was walking around doesn´t sound very sane either, and even Åredal at one point wonders whether the Master may have used his vast knowledge of mysticism as a kind of coping mechanism from an uncomprehending and cold world…
I never read “En mystik troslära”, but judging from Åredal´s extensive exegesis of the volume, Master Fritz was a rather typical impersonalist mystic. In India, he would be considered a follower of Shankara and Advaita Vedanta. Nominally, Fritz was a Christian, indeed, he was technically speaking an ordained priest in the Church of Sweden, but was incapable of actually functioning as such expect for very brief periods. His Bible interpretation was extremely allegorical, and seems to have virtually no connection at all to any Christian tradition. The goal of the mystic is to realize his oneness with “God” (or “It” or “The All”), the true meaning of the famous phrase “I am who I am”. Once realizing this, the mystic doesn´t have to leave the world. He can stay within it, since he knows that all is God. Evil is an illusion, and so is isolation from God. Suffering comes about when we don´t realize that we´re constantly in God. Indeed, suffering is a necessary purification of the soul on its way back to God-realization. God creates in two phases. The “exhalation” phase creates the material world, the “inhalation” phase reunites everything and everyone with God. It is this process of reuniting which causes friction, suffering and “evil”. I readily admit that I don´t vibrate with this kind of message at all… Apart from the usual stuff, Fritz Olofsson also expounded at length at the meaning of certain mystical (?) symbols, including a grid of nine points and a curiously shaped cross adorning the church tower of his native village. This is the reason, I think, why the author chose to call his book “Mäster Fritz.” with the dot (point) at the end.
Fritz Olofsson´s impact on Church life and theology in Sweden was virtually non-existent. He had certain contacts with Hans Hof, a mystic and Swedish priest influenced by Zen Buddhism. He was also a member of the Fellowship of St Alban and St Sergius, an Orthodox-dominated group promoting dialogue between Eastern Orthodoxy and the Protestant churches. Åke Åredal seems to be one of the few people who were seriously influenced by the old eccentric. While Åredal is probably a Christian, his book is distributed by the Theosophical Society Adyar and published by a small New Age press called Siljans Måsar. They have published several other books on the “autistic and mentally handicapped people are really deeply spiritual” theme. (I admit that I don´t like it.) One problem with “Mäster Fritz.” is that Åredal frequently inserts his own interpretations of Olofsson´s message at various points in the work. It´s not always obvious when the Master ends and the Disciple begins. The book is also written in a weirdly pedantic style and could have needed better editing.
I´m not sure how to rate this curious work, but had this been an Amazon review, I would probably give it three stars for the contents but only two stars for the style.

Heating Up the Political Climate
I never heard of Peter Handtke before the Swedish Academy (what´s left of it) decided to award him the Nobel literature prize, but apparently the man is universally regarded as an apologist for genocide and other war crimes during the Bosnian war, and a hero of the "Alt Right" to boot.
This way, the Swedish Academy will *completely* destroy its reputation. First the rape scandals around Whatever His Name Was and now this.
Excellent, my young apprentice, excellent!
I know that the Peace Prize has nothing to do with the poor Academy, but it is richly ironic (and somewhat iconic) that Handtke gets a Nobel medal while Greta Thunberg didn´t.
Where da pop corn at?
A racially integrated crowd of working class people attack the well-dressed middle class "anarchists" from Extinction Rebellion (XR). The riot took place in London. Scenes like this will repeat themselves over and over again during the coming decades. Or did you seriously think the proletariat would support higher gasoline taxes? LOL.
Next week, I expect the Antifas to attack the office of some copper mining operation...no, wait, we need more copper for those electric cars, naah, off to annoy the proles again, I suppose!
I´m pretty sure XR don´t support Brexit either.

En oerhört anmärkningsvärd artikel, och dessutom i Expressen av alla tidningar! Har Expressen tagits över av alternativhögern? Först kritik av invandringspolitiken, och nu stöd till Baath-regimen i Damaskus.

PS. Det här inlägget kanske är *lite* ironiskt...
The first human inhabitants of Scandinavia after the end of the so-called last Ice Age, apparently looked nothing like Conan the Barbarian or the gorgeous blonde on the cover of "Winter of the World".
No, they were apparently Black and blue-eyed?! Another group came from the East and were probably some kind of proto-Lapid paleo-Uralics.
Or not, since today, these groups are extinct, leaving but little trace in our genome. They were presumably replaced, first by Neolithic farmers originally from the Middle East and then by the White, based and Conan-like Indo-Europeans.
So I suppose the Alt Right can sleep well tonight. Don´t worry, your ancestors weren´t niggaz…
Still, it *is* funny that the Afro-centrists have been proven right for once!

Khashoggi: Asset of Qatar
I´m late to this story, but it seems Khashoggi wasn´t a brave independent journalist, but rather an agent working for Qatar, Turkey and the Muslim Brotherhood to undermine Saudi Arabia. Which may or may not be a good thing, depending on how you like your Mideast power-struggle. Red hot or medium rare? The propaganda liberals are momentarily anti-Saudi (since Donald Trump sells them weapons - like he´s the only POTUS to have done so), which explains why they lionized Khashoggi. It was simply a convenient way to embarass Trump. Perhaps this week Turkey are the bad boys instead, so don´t expect any new paeans to this great liberal hero any time soon…

Greta Thunberg didn´t get the Nobel Peace Prize. Apparently, signalling Western support for the Saudi-backed expansionist ambitions of Ethiopia (and the privatizations of their telecom industry) proved more important than selling more electric cars to rich consumers…
I assumed Elon Musk had the Ethiopian market covered…?
But then, I don´t think Greta´s fans *really* want her to share a prize with Henry Kissinger, Menachem Begin and the European Union, so perhaps it was for the best.
Maybe next year…
During the 1970´s, many climate scientists believed that a new Ice Age was imminent. The theory was expounded upon in this semi-official documentary, narrated by Leonard Nimoy (Spock in "Star Trek").
It seems the science wasn´t yet settled in 1978...

Äntligen ska antiken bort från läroplanen, inte en sekund för tidigt om du frågar mig. Vad fan är det för viktigt med antiken, egentligen? Vad är det svenska skolbarn missar?
Att Hadrianus satte på en kille och sedan upphöjde honom till gud med ett eget tempel vid Nilen? Att Heliogabalus spelade påfågel med en stor jävla fjäder i röven? Att Caligula utnämnde en häst till senator, eller fucking vad?
Lägg därtill slaveri i massiv skala, barbarer, judeutrotningar, totalt vansinniga kosmologiska spekulationer, ständiga förföljelser av filosofer, spådomskonst av vidskepligaste sort, och alla sorters hedniska skändligheter, nej, det är bra att detta nu försvinner från grundskolan och förhoppningsvis ersätts av något viktigare.
Exempelvis alfabetet, matematik, astronomi, demokrati, republikanism, biologi, botanik, kristendomskunskap och annat som vi alla vet inte har något med antiken att göra, utan uppfanns circa år 1973.
Alea jacta est, jag har talat.

|If this idiot blogger calls me chicken one more time, I´m gonna go ultra-rogue on him!|
So DNA research suggests that falcons are more closely related to parrots and passerines than to eagles, hawks, vultures and other Accipitriformes.
My amateur biological side always thought there was something strange about falcons. I mean, they *look* differently, don´t they? For all I know, they could be parrots gone ultra-rogue. And what about the caracaras? They look like chicken evolving into birds of prey!
Next, I want a thorough taxonomical revision of cuckoos. I´m pretty sure there´s something fishy about them, too. And what´s this shit about swifts and hummingbirds being related??? Not to mention the supposed dino-bird connexion, not sure about that one either.
Maybe we should also take a closer look at the old discarded theory that flying foxes are really primates and hence related to humans... Always missed that one!
|Maitreya came to his people, and his people comprehendeth him not|
According to the Shingon school of Esoteric Buddhism, the Buddha of the future will appear in
5.6 billion years and save all sentient beings by taking them to the Pure Land Paradise.
Can we really afford waiting that long for real change we can believe in?
Especially since the Earth will be swallowed by the Sun in just 4 billion years. The prospect of having to be suspended in inter-planetary space in the form of a gas cloud chased by Lovecraftian Wyrms for 1.6 billion years doesn´t really appeal to me.
Can Christ Jesus please come back in 2030 instead?
“Death and the Afterlife: A Chronological Journey from Cremation to Quantum Resurrection” by Clifford A Pickover is a bewildering, confusing and decidedly non-chronological meandering peregrination through humanity´s myriad views of death and dying.
Peculiar burial customs, child sacrifice, ideas about the afterlife, paintings and novels about our mortality, even some science and science fiction (not always easy to tell apart in these murky waters)…you will need a lot of patience to sift through this material, unless you love to be surprised! Other topics covered: abortion, executions, the Ghost Dance and the two most popular “books of the dead” in Western culture (yes, the Egyptian and the Tibetan). The book has a “Halloween” feel, with small pictures of skulls on the covers.
Much of the information was new to me, such as the notion of “sin-eaters”. In Aztec culture, the soul of the departed is said to meet a spirit-being named Tlazolteotl, which would “eat” his or her sins. I say Tlazolteotl had a lot of work to do, considering the innumerable crimes of this particular civilization! “Real” sin-eaters have existed in the UK. Food was placed at the corpse of the departed, and a social outcast was then instructed to eat it, at which the sins of the deceased person were said to be transferred to the sin-eater via the food. It seems English peasants didn´t trust the efficacy of the atoning death of Christ…
Atheists want immortality as much as the religiously faithful or the credulously superstitious. Hence entries on cryonics, transhumanism, Quantum immortality and Quantum resurrection. There is also something called Boltzmann brains. I´m sure Boltzmann himself had a couple of those. The author of this volume missed Ray Kurzweil´s Singularity notions, though. On a more negative note, there is nothing about runaway climate change and the Venus scenario. Another problem is that the book isn´t fully sourced.
Maybe next time? Or in my next life, LOL.
“Europas rovfåglar” by Gunnar Pettersson is Swedish book about raptors or birds of prey. Published in 1984, it includes the falcons alongside hawks, eagles, vultures and other Accipitriformes. Apparently, the falcons are no longer regarded as raptors in good standing, rather being a dramatic example of convergent evolution. Or so the nerd who writes on Wiki tells me. Until the pendulum swings back again, presumably… Sorting out these birds have long been a problem for biologists!
The book includes all European raptor species. The species presentations are rather short. The book is above all a work of art. And yes, the illustrations are made by Gunnar Pettersson himself. He, or perhaps the editor, seems more fascinated by some species than by others. Peregrine falcons, gyrfalcons and white-tailed eagles are prominently featured. So are some vultures. The author is “pro-raptor” and the concluding chapter attacks humanity as we know it for “persecuting” raptors. I didn´t know that birds of prey were themselves prey for humans just a few centuries ago. In Sweden, the common buzzard was verily food, and in southern Italy and Sicily, the locals feasted on sea eagles and the lammergeier! The author also writes about falconry – I find it fascinating that falcons can actually be trained or tamed.
But no, I´m not particularly raptor-friendly. If it´s between us and them, I´d say kill´em before they multiply (and eat´em). Perhaps I imbibed too much romantic shit about Nature as a kid from books like “Europas rovfåglar”, so this is the counter-reaction. Still, I like parrots and magpies, so the idea that falcons are more closely related to Psittaciformes and Passeriformes than to some ugly buzzard or vulture made me slightly more positive to the fate of the Peregrine…
“Ockulta boken” is a Swedish translation of John Michael Greer´s “The Occult Book: A Chronological Journey from Alchemy to Wicca”. I haven´t seen the American original, but in the Swedish edition, the print is too small, although I suppose it´s possible that I´m simply getting old and even more near-sighted!
Otherwise, I have no particular objections to this volume, described by its author as a “coffee table book”. It could also be described as an encyclopedic teaser trailer to the arcane world of the occult. The author takes us on an extended journey from Pythagoras to the 2012 phenomenon. Most of the landfalls along the path would be familiar to avid students of these truly esoteric topics. Thus, there are entries on Corpus Hermeticum, Paracelsus, Böhme, the Rosicrucian Manifestoes, Eliphas Levi, Golden Dawn, Blavatsky and Steiner. Other topics covered are perhaps more obscure, such as the mysterious Benandanti, a 16th century pagan cult in northern Italy exposed by the Inquisition. Or what about Hoodoo drug stores, once a staple of the US urban landscape?
“The Occult Book” shows the diversity of the Western occult tradition, which includes both “low” folkish superstition and “high” philosophical speculation…and pretty much everything in between! A thing that struck me when reading about Swedish 18th century occultism in another work, was how broad the occult interests even of aristocrats actually were, ranging all the way from the Cabala to tasseomancy. Thus, the author´s decision to include other strands of the secret tradition besides Hermetic philosophy and Böhmean mysticism was clearly a good one. And speaking of Sweden, two Swedes have been included in this volume, Johannes Bureus and Emmanuel Swedenborg (our very own prophet). Left out is Gustaf Adolf Reuterholm, but perhaps he is less known internationally?
For those who consider the entries in this teaser trailer too short, a list of recommended reading has been included in the last section. I noticed that it included another book by John Michael Greer, “Apocalypse Not”, the author´s very own take (or take down) of the 2012 phenomenon. Finally, a minor quibble with the Swedish translation. Blavatsky´s magnum opus is called “Den Hemliga Läran” in Swedish, nothing else.
The demand for copper will have surged by 250% in the car industry by the year 2030. The reason? Electric cars. Which are touted as the solution to the climate crisis by sectors of the establishment.
Thus, in order to save the world, we need copper. And lots of it! Which means we need copper mines. And lots of them. In Sweden, that means Lappland. You know, the pristine wilderness area in the north inhabited by wolves, wolverines, caribou and some recalcitrant Saami Natives (who use gasoline to their snowmobiles and want to exterminate the wolves). Coming soon to an area the local Sierra Club wants to save: yuge copper mining operations!
But don´t worry. Apparently, mines can be electrified, too. So who knows? Maybe we *can* save the world, after all.
Oh, wait, you are *against* copper mining cuz pristine wilderness or something? There´s the door. Eco-fascist!

The absolutely most strange and crazy religious (“religious”?) viewpoint I ever came across (and lets face it, the competition out there is pretty stiff) is known as Israel Only Full Preterism (simply abbreviated IO). The teaching goes something like this…
The Bible is more or less authentic, but deals with Israel only. The prophecies about salvation are thus true enough, but only apply to the ancient Israelites or Jews. Jesus is the Jewish Messiah. Further, all prophecies in the Holy Scriptures have already been fulfilled. The Second Advent of Jesus Christ took place in AD 70. The wicked were punished, while the righteous were resurrected and lifted up with the Lord to Heaven. That is, the righteous Jews.
Since this time, God has ceased to be interested in Earth or humanity. He has finished saving the people he wanted to save, and that is that. The rest of us (including post-AD 70 Jews) are stuck on this rock forever, or rather until we die, at which point we will simply be dead forever, since no immortal soul exists. Presumably, our bodies will be eaten by worms, and so forth.
Apparently, many people who held this curious view have become Deists or even atheists. That does seem to be the logical conclusion of this line of thinking.
Personally, I´ve came to the conclusion that the Messiah will arrive 5.6 billion years into the future, and save everyone who is still standing, Jew, Gentile or telekinetic raccoon, but that´s me…
Don´t listen to this based pessimist "Ashtar Command" and his constant cries about copper mining, neodymium geopolitics or whatever preoccupies his Mara-infested pessimistic Non-Mind this kalpa.
If you are really tired of this puny little rock in outer space (I mean, I can´t even find Sukhavati using you as my reference point), just pray to me and you will be with me in Tushita Heaven already today.
Then, none of this copper wiring stuff will mean anything to you.
Either that, or you could join the nearest hippie commune and grow your own vegetables. Really.

Paved in copper
The above is a laudatory article from 2016 about renewable energy. Curiously, the article admits that wind, solar and electric cars need copper wiring - and lots of it - to work.
What the article doesn´t say is where the copper is mined...
How about poor Third World nations such as the Congo or Zambia? Or supposedly pristine wilderness areas such as Lapland in Sweden and Finland...
The radical Greens who want wind and solar, also want to save the Sami, the Natives of Lapland, and the pristine wilderness. I assume they don´t want to super-exploit Africa, either.
In other words, the math doesn´t add up.
Just as a side point, I also noticed that the radical Greens oppose hunting of wolves, bears and foxes. So when the chips are down, they are not particularly pro-Sami either. The Sami want the predators gone, since they threaten their reindeer flocks...
Being a radical Green can´t be easy. Which may or may not explain why they want to legalize cannabis!
And no, I´m not a brownlash cornucopian. I´m just the old grumpy guy in the background pointing out what we are really up against.
I think it has already been established that Donald Trump wasn´t loco when he wanted to purchase Greenland from Denmark. But in case you missed it, part of the reason can be found in the article linked above.
The United States need rare earth metals. So does the rest of the world economy. REM´s are used in everything from military technology to Android phones. Most of the world´s REM production is controlled by the People´s Republic of China. It´s obvious that the Trump administration wants to reverse the long-standing American policy of catering to the Chinese. The next Cold War might take place between Washington and Beijing, rather than the more "logical" US-Russian confrontation.
This means that the US would have to secure its REM demand in other ways than purchasing it from China. This explains US interest in making a deal with North Korea, suspected of having the world´s largest REM deposists outside China. It also explains the sudden interest in Greenland.
China actually wanted to buy an abandoned port facility on Greenland, something that surprised me to no end until I did some reading on REMs. Yes, you´ve guessed it, there are enormous quantities of these trinkets on the god-forsaken island. So that´s why the Chinese were interested. That´s also why the United States want to control Greenland wholesale, rather than through their Danish NATO vassals. Who knows who will be in power in Denmark in 10 years or so?
The article linked above is about the projected mine at Kvanefjeld in southern Greenland. In addition to rare earth minerals, uranium will be mined there, too. In the event that the nuclear power industry will expand in the future, this will also prove significant.
Let´s be brutally honest here. In 2050, Greenland will be an Unicorporated US Territory sorting under the Department of Mineral Extraction and Resource War.
Let´s just hope they won´t hunt those magnificent whales...
Billions in the ground
The article linked to above is extremely interesting, and taken from a magazine published by one particular faction of the US foreign policy establishment, "The National Interest".
I always wondered why on earth Donald Trump has a virtual bromance with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, the (supposedly) trigger-happy Red menace from the deepest unicorn caves around Pyongyang. Something tells me you wondered about this, too.
Well, it seems we don´t have to wonder anymore...
China controls 95% of the world´s rare earth mineral production. Rare earths are necessary for military technology and other forms of high tech, but ironically also for the "renewable energy" sector. All good and well if you have splendid relations with Beijing.
Trump doesn´t. This explains why he is interested in cultivating the North Korean regime. North Korea may have the world´s largest deposits of rare earth minerals outside China, most of it untapped. China, South Korea and Russia are all *very* interested in doing the tapping. The United States has simply jumped on the bandwagon. And while North Korea and China are allies, there could be some friction between them worth exploiting (although that´s probably material for another full article).
Interestingly, since "The National Interest" seems to be Neo-Conservative in general orientation, the article linked to above proposes lifting sanctions against the DPRK and de facto recognize that Pyongyang is now a nuclear power. While this would make non-proliferation look like the sham it actually is, it would also make it possible for the US to throw its economic weight around and invest in large-scale mining operations in North Korea.
Unless the Democrats (who are presumably pro-Chinese) undercut the Trump administration´s strategy, I think the above will happen.
Hopefully, there will also be a democratic revolution in North Korea and eventual reunification with the South...
När Donald Trump krävde att Stefan Löfvén skulle agera för att få ASAP Rocky frikänd, blev han tydligen avsnoppad av Löfvén som modigt förklarade att Sverige minsann har ett oberoende rättsväsende och därmed basta, Orange Man Bad you!
Sedan gick Löfvén med på allt annat Trump ville att han skulle göra...
Så modig var han, alltså.
Vad Löfvén och Trump egentligen talade om
PS. Jag uttalar mig inte om huruvida Sverige och Ericsson ska sätta dit Kina och Huawei. Maybe, maybe not. Det jag reagerar på är en viss sorts medial dumhet, eller kanske naivitet. Lägg ner, Sverige har alltid tillhört västalliansen, möjligen med undantag för en viss Olof Palme...
Självklart gjorde Löfvén som Trump beordrade. Ja, det kanske var *därför* Trump trodde att kan även kunde ta upp ASAP Rocky med den svenske kolonialguvernören. Kan man beställa lagstiftning från Sveriges regering kanske man kan få afro-amerikanska kändisar försatta på fri fot? I mean, why not?
Men *det*, Mr Orange Man, *det* är omöjligt cuz muh independent judiciary or something.
This is about as far away as you can possibly get from the political crises looming in DC and elsewhere. But then, it seems these guys are actually having fun!
Yesterday, two million people were supposed to storm the mysterious US military facility known as Area 51 in the Nevada Desert, where the Illuminati are stashing alien bodies with radiometric properties. Or whatever is the current absurd conspiracy theory about the place.
It seems only about 20 people showed up, and most of them (as you can see from this Fox News segment) had no intention of storming anything, except maybe the local bar...
Everything is well in the world. And, I might add, the ten thousand worlds.

In 4 billion years, the sun will swallow the Earth and then collapse. Which I suppose is bad news. However, I´ve been reliably informed that the Maitreya Buddha will appear in 5.6 billion years and save all sentient beings by taking them to the Pure Land Paradise in the West. Which, if you chose to believe it, sounds like good news.
I´m a believer.
Of course, it also means that humanity and other Buddha-forsaken monads have been given 5.6 billion years to sort out their acts.
If *that* is good or bad news, I honestly don´t know…

Det var ju kul att någon var glad. Jag hoppas att Kadhammar är lika glad åt att västvärlden kommer att bli beroende av sällsynta jordartsmetaller från Kina och Nordkorea, att hela Lappland grävs upp i jakten på mer koppar och att fler barnarbetare i Kongo exploateras, att fler fattiga svälter ihjäl när deras mat blir biobränsle, och att kärnkraften kraftigt byggs ut (t.ex i Iran). Det är nämligen vad som krävs för att "bryta oljeberoendet".
Såvida inte Peter Kadhammar vill gå tillbaka till stenåldern och gå några holmgångar med neandertalare, sabeltandade katter och grottlejon.
Vilket jag misstänker att han inte vill göra.
"Jag gläds åt oljeattacken i Saudiarabien"
The US Navy has released supposed UFO footage and claims that they can´t explain whatever is on it. From Tucker Carlson Show!
Those of us who have been reading John Michael Greer´s "The UFO Phenomenon" know what´s REALLY going on.
The US Navy wants to send a message to the Chinese and the Russians. Either "we know they are yours, and yes, we´ve seen them" or "they are ours, look at what we got". What better way to hide in plain sight than "disclosing UFOs"? It could also be a psychological experiment on the public, or an attempt to deflect attention from top secret drones inadvertently exposed by well-meaning UFO researchers.
Well, at least we know that our boys really have state of the art arms technology and can save Saudi Arabia (and the world oil prices) if the going gets tough down there…
And yes, Roswell was a weather balloon.

Lisa Magnusson ryter ifrån i DN. Och på ledarplats dessutom! The Bondage Queen hötter med pekfingret mot en miljard muslimer och säger "aja baja bäää, ni måste MODERNISERA". På vilket det lilla fåtal muslimer som läser DN ironiskt kommer att svara: "Jaha".
På annan plats i DN försvarar Wolodarski elsparkcykeln. Det var ju bra att NÅGON på redaktionen tar tag i de VERKLIGT viktiga frågorna...
Islam måste modernisera. Or something

It seems I never linked to this before. Just another day in Finland, our (Sweden´s) old-fashioned neighbor in the east.
The clip is great fun, especially so since I was the resident "Great Pyrenees hater" on Amazon a few years ago. I got a lot of pushback from Great Pyr owners who claimed that their vicious guard dogs were really nice to kids, other dogs, and so on. (Before eating them?)
Like we never heard that one before, LOL.
Not sure why everyone thinks this guy is extremely brave, first it´s a very young bear, almost a cub, secondly, it does *not* run away from the man´s property.
Next time, Mama is gonna come around for the Sisu Man´s nutritious sauna garbage, and then what?
I don´t think a "Perkele Saatana" will solve that situation, although I suppose the old vet could always go "full Winter War" on the Queen of the Kalevala Woodlands...
I´m betting on Mama.
So according to Sant Mat, Radhasoami or whatever, the material world but also the enchanting and alluring astral realms (in which we can attain siddhi powers) were created by the evil Demiurge Kal or Kal Niranjan.
I say that makes Kal the good guy. We certainly seem to be having a great deal of fun down here! Especially if "down below" includes the astral realms in which the mystic can do whatever he freaking likes...
What if I don´t *want* to leave the astral to merge with the Oceanic Sound Current of Brahman? I mean, do you?
Let´s stay down here forever.
