A Tale of the Thirteenth Floor

[A special Halloween offering. - HAC]

The hands of the clock were reaching high
In an old midtown hotel;
I name no name, but its sordid fame
Is table talk in Hell.
I name no name, but Hell's own flame
Illumes the lobby garish,
A gilded snare just off Times Square
For the virgins of the parish.

The revolving door swept the grimy floor
Like a crinoline grotesque,
And a lowly bum from an ancient slum
Crept furtively past the desk.
His footsteps sift into to lift
As a knife in the sheath is slipped,
Stealthy and swift into the lift
As a vampire into a crypt.

Old Maxie, the elevator boy
Was reading an ode by Shelley,
But he dropped the ode as it were a toad
When the gun jammed into his belly.
There came a whisper soft as mud
In the bed of an old canal:
"Take me up to the suite of Pinball Pete,
The rat who betrayed my gal."

The lift doth rise with groans and sighs
Like a duchess for the waltz,
Then in middle shaft, like a duchess daft,
It changes its mind and halts.
The bum bites lip as the landlocked ship
Doth neither fall nor rise,
But Maxie the elevator boy
Regards him with burning eyes.
"First to explore the thirteenth floor,"
Says Maxie, "would be wise."

Quoth the bum, "There is moss on your double cross,
I have been this way before,
I have cased the joint at every point,
And there IS no thirteenth floor!
The architect he skipped direct
From twelve unto fourteen,
There is twelve below and fourteen above,
And nothing in between,
For the vermin who dwell in this hotel
Could never abide thirteen."

Said Max, "Thirteen, that floor obscene,
Is hidden from human sight;
But once a year it doth appear,
On this All Hallows night.
Ere you peril your soul in murderer's role,
Heed those who sinned of yore;
The path they trod led away from God,
And onto the thirteenth floor,
Where those they slew, a grisly crew,
Reproach them forevermore.

"We are higher than twelve and below fourteen,"
Said Maxie to the bum,
"And the sickening draft that taints the shaft
Is a whiff of kingdom come.
The sickening draft that taints the shaft
Blows through the devil's door!"
And he squashed the latch like a fungus patch,
And revealed the thirteenth floor.

It was cheap cigars like lurid scars
That glowed in the rancid gloom,
The murk was a-boil with fusel oil
And the reek of stale perfume.
And round and round there dragged and wound
A loathsome conga chain,
The square and the hep in slow lock step,
The slayer and the slain.
(For the souls of the victims ascend on high,
But their bodies below remain.)

The clean souls fly to their home in the sky,
But their bodies remain below
To pursue the Cains who emptied their veins
And harry them to and fro.
When life is extinct each corpse is linked
To its gibbering murderer,
As a chicken is bound with wire around
The neck of a killer cur.

Handcuffed to hate comes Dr. Waite
(HE tastes the poison now),
And Ruth and Judd and a head of blood
With horns upon its brow.
Up sashays Nan with her feathery fan
From Floradora bright;
She never swung for Caesar Young,
But she's dancing with him tonight.

Here's the bulging hip and the foam-flecked lip
Of the Mad Dog, Vincent Coll,
And over there that ill-met pair,

Becker and Rosenthal.
Here's Legs and Dutch and a dozen such
Of braggart bullies and brutes,
And each one bends 'neath the weight of friends
Who are wearing concrete suits.

Now the damned make way for the double damned
Who emerge with shuffling pace
From the nightmare zone of persons unknown,
With neither name nor face.
And poor Dot King to one doth cling,
Joined in a ghastly jig,
While Elwell doth jape at a goblin shape
And tickle it with his wig.

See Rothstein pass like a breath on glass,
The original Black Sox kid;
He riffles the pack, riding piggyback
On the killer whose name he hid.
And smeared like brine on a slavering swine,
Starr Faithful, once so fair,
Drawn from the sea to her debauchee,
With the salt sand in her hair.

And still they come, and from the bum
The icy sweat doth spray;
His white lips scream as in a dream,
"For God's sake, let's away!
If ever I meet with Pinball Pete
I will not seek his gore,
Lest a treadmill grim I must trudge with him
On the hideous thirteenth floor!"

"For you I rejoice," said Maxie's voice,
"And I bid you go in peace,
But I am late for a dancing date
That nevermore will cease.
So remember, friend, as your way you wend,
That it would have happened to you.
But I turned the heat on Pinball Pete;
You see---I had a daughter, too."

The bum reached out and he tried to shout,
But the door in his face was slammed,
And silent as stone he rode down alone
From the floor of the double damned.

A Philosopher Speaks on the Jews

VOLTAIRE (Francois Marie Arouet)
18th century French philosopher, writer:

"Why are the Jews hated? It is the inevitable result of their laws; they either have to conquer everybody or be hated by the whole human race..."

"The Jewish nation dares to display an irreconcilable hatred toward all nations, and revolts against all masters; always superstitious, always greedy for the well-being enjoyed by others, always barbarous - cringing in misfortune and insolent in prosperity." (Essai sur le Moeurs)

"You seem to me to be the maddest of the lot. The Kaffirs, the Hottentots, and the Negroes of Guinea are much more reasonable and more honest people than your ancestors, the Jews. You have surpassed all nations in impertinent fables in bad conduct and in barbarism. You deserve to be punished, for this is your destiny." (From a letter to a Jew who had written to him, complaining of his 'anti-Semitism.' Examen des Quelques Objections...dans L'Essai sur le Moeurs.)

Our New "Fellow Americans"

Our objection to massive and unrestricted Third World immigration isn't merely racial.

It must be understood that Third World people bring with them Third World moral standards, or lack of them. The popular picture of the poor, persecuted little immigrant is that he is some humble good Joe (or good Jose) who just wants to come here and work and work like a dog for us munificent white folks, hauling our garbage and grilling our cheeseburgers and cutting our grass, in order to "make a better life" for himself and his family.

This is balderdash. The fact is that the overwhelming majority of illegal immigrants to this country are lower class, poorly educated people, vicious and ignorant, in many cases with criminal proclivities, which is one reason they can't make it in their countries of origin. Then when they come here, they bring with them their own shoddy version of "family values."

Police in Pharr, California have issued a warrant for the arrest of 21-year-old illegal immigrant Pedro Guzman Munoz, who is accused of raping a 10-year-old girl described as a "family member" and leaving her pregnant. The girl is probably his sister, but the left-leaning, liberal news media has refused to cough up this information for feminist ideological reasons. A local doctor discovered the girl's pregnancy during what the media called a "routine medical exam" and called the cops.

This leads to the question of how an illegal immigrant, child or not, can afford to obtain a "routine medical exam" from an American doctor when many native-born white American families have no medical insurance and have not been able to visit a doctor or a dentist in years. It is virtually certain that since the family were illegals who speak little English, the doctor involved was a Mexican as well, or at least a Spanish-speaker.

Once reported, the case was handed over to a Mexican cop on the Pharr police department, one Lieutenant Guadalupe Salinas, who said "We assume the abuse had been going on for some time...at least six months." It is becoming more and more common in California, Texas, and other areas to read a story of crime and corruption like this and find nothing but Hispanic names involved, Spanish perp, Spanish victim, Spanish witnesses, Spanish cops, Spanish DA, Spanish judge--almost as if the crime were taking place in Mexico itself.

The girl is three-months pregnant and remains in her parents' home. Police continued to search for Guzman on Thursday but said they did not have any leads on his whereabouts. "We think he went back to Mexico because he's an undocumented immigrant, but we don't know," Salinas said.

The old notion of immigrants as bright, eager young folks coming to America with hope in their eyes to work and work and make wonderful new lives for themselves and be loyal to the red, white, and blue is an outdated myth. The Latin world is sufficiently advanced so that any Hispanic person with education, skills, and a good work ethic can get a good job in the upper strata of their own country and make a living in their native land, Mexico or wherever.

The good ones who might contribute something to American society aren't the ones who come here. They don't have to. The immigrants that we get here are the overflow of the Third World, the surplus population, thieves and ignorant peasants and child molestors like Guzman, who by the way will probably re-enter the United States illegally over our porous southern border within days.

Is America Going Insane?

After two generations of liberalism, political correctness, and now neoconservatism, I genuinely believe that it is time, and more than time, for us to ask ourselves a deadly serious question. Is America as a nation is losing its mind? Are we becoming collectively dysfunctional and insane as a society?

Consider two recent news articles, stories that appeared on the wire services and as yet haven't excited much comment, even from professional ghouls like Nancy Grace and the Discovery Channel.

From New Orleans comes yet another story of bizarre and lunatic crime, along with the shoplifting transvestites and other high weirdness which has been going on since Katrina. A white man, Zackery Bowen, apparently killed his girl friend, butchered her carcass, and roasted her up in a cannibal barbecue.

A NOLA online news articles states that "A suicide note in the pocket of a man who jumped off the Omni Royal Orleans Hotel late Tuesday led police to the grisly scene of his girlfriend's murder, where they found her charred head in a pot on the stove, her legs and arms baked in the oven and the rest of her dismembered body in a trash bag in the refrigerator... The man, Zackery Bowen, a tall 28-year-old man with long blond hair, confessed in the note to have killed his girlfriend, Adriane "Addie" Hall, 30, on Oct. 5th."

(Almost two weeks ago, so Bowen had plenty of time to engage in his version of Cajun Kitchen.)

"...Detectives found two pots on the stove, one containing a the victim's head and the other her hands and feet. Next to the pot containing the head were carrots and potatoes that had been cut up, but none had been placed in the pots."

Sounds like quite a gumbo Bowen was making. Hopefully he followed famous Cajun chef Justin Wilson's advice and used plenty of Lea and Perrins Worcestershire sauce on the brisket.

No, seriously. I know people make tasteless and silly jokes about things like this, and you can rent a slasher film from the video store that shows worse stuff, but think about what has to happen to a man's mind before he can do something like this for real. I have written some pretty heavy sade scenes in my novels, but I damned well know the difference between reality and fantasy. Somehow or other this guy Bowen's mind just sort of melded with the Batshit Cosmos, and it's happening to more and more people.

According to NOLA "In the oven were turkey-basting trays containing human legs and arms, the source said. At least one of the pans had seasoning sprinkled on the human remains, the source said...[Bowen] claimed in his note to have sexually violated the body several times, eventually passing out in a drunken stupor on the futon next to his girlfriend's corpse. The next day, after he got off work delivering groceries, Bowen moved the body to the bathroom tub and dismembered her remains with a handsaw and knife....'He appeared to clean up the bathroom a lot after he did it,' one officer said."

Well, at least he's a clean cannibal.

Interestingly, Bowen and Hall had featured a year ago in a New York Times article on how people in New Orleans were coping with Hurricane Katrina. Unlike the blacks, the white couple did not flee the city, and according to the Times, Hall developed a novel way of making sure the mostly black police force patrolled their street regularly--she flashed her breasts at every cop car that passed by. Oh, and they also lived in an apartment above a voodoo shop.

Moving right along here, comes a story from the Big Apple that vies in gruesomeness with the one from the Big Sleazy. It seems that a number of funeral home directors in Brooklyn and throughout the New York City area have been running a unique kind of "chop shop"--human organs and tissue and body parts they strip from the corpses of their clients.

According to an Associated Press article, "Seven funeral home directors linked to a scheme to plunder corpses and sell the body parts for transplants pleaded guilty to undisclosed charges and have agreed to cooperate with investigators....The unidentified directors secretly pleaded guilty in the probe of what investigators say was a plot to harvest bone and tissue and sell it to biomedical supply companies, Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes said."

Seven of them, and judging from the article, more to come.

The AP continues: "The seven entered their pleas in closed courtrooms and their names were withheld, but defense attorneys said that among those cooperating was the director of a funeral home that took parts from the body of Masterpiece Theatre host Alistair Cooke, who died in 2004." One wonders, what body parts could that old coot have had that would still be serviceable? He must have been well into his seventies.

The Associated Press goes on: "Prosecutors allege Michael Mastromarino, a former oral surgeon, and three other men secretly removed skin, bone and other parts from up to 1,000 bodies from funeral homes, without the permission of families. He allegedly made millions of dollars by selling the stolen tissue to biomedical companies that supply material for common procedures including dental implants and hip replacements."

Up to one thousand corpses stripped down for everything from eyeballs to knuckle bones. This wasn't just the act of some isolated insane ghoul; this was an organized and methodical business venture based on hard cash. What was going on in these men's minds when they did this shit? Have we become a society so completely devoid of propriety and conscience that they simply honestly didn't see anything wrong in violating one of the most ancient religious and moral taboos, mutilating the dead, in order to make money? Has the mindless worship of money really replaced every last sense of spiritual balance and ethics in our minds?

Looks like it. In Prohibition there were bootleggers, cigarette smugglers in New York are often known as buttleggers, and now we've got bodleggers, apparently.

People, what is God's name is going on here?

Okay, throughout history there have been occasional outbreaks of demented violence and macabre crime in this country, from people like Belle Gunness and Albert Fish and the infamous Benders of Kansas. But those cases occurred maybe once every quarter century or so, they were completely atypical, and they attracted infamy because of their incredible rarity.

In "the old days" (like when I grew up), people didn't have to worry about Mr. Dibble the local funeral director secretly disassembling old Aunt Ida's corpse for parts, and while guys occasionally killed their girl friends they did not subsequently cook them and serve them up as an Irish stew.

It's almost like when the white man lost our alpha gene, we also ended up with some kind of weird, mutated crazy gene that's now running wild. There is simply too much of this mad and bad craziness going on these days to try and explain it away as some kind of odd conjunction of sick individuals. Madness has gotten into our blood.

One theory is that since the white man has the most highly developed an complex brain of any human organism, the sheer pressure of having to live in the unnatural world of political correctness, Jew-worship, feminism, money-worship and materialism to the exclusion of all else, increasingly open sexual perversion and the browning of America has driven many white people of both sexes around the twist.

This kind of weird mess is happening almost every week now. It's as if prolonged association with Third World savages and prolonged exposure to Jews, a psychotic people who practice paranoid schizophrenia as a religion, has contaminated and warped our minds to the breaking point. There is no "normal" any more.

It has to end, people. We either have to kill America, or it will kill us.

Close the Floodgates

With the issue of illegal Third World immigration finally arriving on the national radar screen, a survey released by the Pew Hispanic Center in San Diego Tuesday showed that four in 10 Mexicans would immigrate to the United States if given the chance, and more than half would consider participating in a guest worker program like the one proposed by President Bush. Forty-one percent of Mexicans surveyed in February and 46 percent in May said they would live in the United States if they "had the means and opportunity."

"Very significant portions of the Mexican adult population have the thought of migration in mind and view it as an option," said Roberto Suro,director of the Pew Hispanic Center. "A significant portion, two out of 10, are willing to consider the idea of coming here without authorization."

The current estimated population of Mexico according to the World FactBook is approximately 106,000,000 people. This means that if all of the Mexicans who want to come to the United States were to decide to act on their desires, there would be around 42 million more Mexicans here, and that doesn't even take into account the even more impoverished and unassimiliable populations of Central America from such primitive countries as Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador, Niacaraugua, and Panama.

Meanwhile the Council on Foreign Relations and other high-powered capitalist think tanks are planning on following up the infamous NAFTA treaty of twenty years ago with the CAFTA plan, which would for all intents and purposes erase the borders of the United States, Canada, and all of the Latin countries down to the beginning of the South American continent at the Panama-Colombia line. Those 42 million mestizos may yet get their wish.

The only chance that America has remaining is something which has not been seen since 1861, a genuine grass roots, mass movement to curb the arrogance of power in Washington D. C. Not only must the floodgates be closed and the border sealed, but massive and serious action must be taken to remove those mestizos and other Third World immigrants now present on the North American continent.

We must establish once and for all that this is America. It is not Mexico, it is not China, it is not the Middle East, and it is not Africa. America belongs to those whose ancestors created it, not to all of these Third World peoples who want to get on the White man's back and ride.

Blacks Finally Notice They're Being Replaced By Mexicans

The burgeoning Mexican invasion has begun to take on many of the outward trappings of the so-called (and badly misnamed) civil rights movement of the 1960s. This includes adopting much of the rhetoric of Martin Lucifer Koon, Jesse Jackson, Ralph Abernathy, etc. In some of the mass demonstrations which took place on May 1st, the beginning of the Aztlan Revolution, the Mexicans even carried pictures of Martin Luther King and sang "We Shall Overcome" in Spanish.

The object of the "New Civil Rights Movement" is to extort at economic gunpoint citizenship for millions of illegal Third World immigrants, and thus make sure that white people are forever outnumbered and outvoted in their own country, the country their ancestors made. The next step, of course, will be separation from the United States and the creation of Aztlan, a Hispanic nation in the southwestern U. S. Get used to hearing that name, folks. It's going to be part of our future from now on.

But many among the artificially created black middle class which has been brought into being by affirmative action and the Democratic party are starting to become uneasy. The blacks do have enough rudimentary intelligence to see and to understand that the great American pie is no longer limitless, and that the bigger the slice of the white man's pie that is given to the Mexicans and other illegal Third World immigrants, the smaller the slice of that pie which will be given to negroes.

The apprehension is also becoming acute among black blue collar workers who, like their white counterparts, can see with their own eyes that their jobs are being taken by $5.00 per hour illegals. Some liberals and "black intellectuals" (pardon the oxymoron) also object to the Mexicans adopting the trappings of the 1960s civil rights movement, pointing out that the Mexicans are Johnny-come-latelies to the racket.

What might be called the "classic liberal" objection to the Mexicans aping the apes, so to speak, and plagiarizing the symbols and appurtenances of the 1960s crusade, is that blacks technically speaking were American citizens after 1865.

According to the legend, they supposedly endured centuries of enslavement, rapes, lynchings and discrimination before they started marching. (In actual fact, of course, the old South under segregation was nowhere near as bad as it is pictured by liberals who want to re-write history, but that's another subject.)

In essence, the blacks are saying to the Mexicans, "We wuz here first, muddafukkas, go find you own corner." There is a large element of one gang trying to muscle in on the other's turf here. Who will end up with the biggest piece of the action, i.e. the white man's tax dollars? The blacks or the spics? Bluntly, on a level playing field as they fight over America's carcass, my money is on the spics.

The potential for conflict between the New Civil Rights Movement and the old is the most acute in the area of low-skilled black workers who must compete with immigrants for entry-level jobs. One thing must be conceded to the Mexicans: their first generation of immigrants that crossed the river will at least work hard. So when an employer has $100 an hour budgeted for labor and he is faced with a choice of hiring twenty illegals who will work like ants at $5.00 an hour, or ten lazy back-talking coons at $10.00 an hour who will lie around all day smoking joints and drinking wine, who is he going to pick?

Constitution Notes

I know that many of you consider the new Constitution to be an exercise in aerial castle-building. However, it is important, for two reasons.

1) If we are going to ask people to commit themselves to a new world, to work for it and sacrifice for it, and eventually to fight and die for it, we need to show them just what it is they're doing it all for. For the first time in the history of this so-called "Movement" of ours, a group of us have gotten together and we have created a concrete vision of a White future. You may or may not agree with some or all of it--but at least now, someone has done it.

2) In the event of a Soviet-style breakup of the United States, which will be brought seriously forward if Jug-Ears decides to attack Iran, it is necessary for us to have some kind of plan or foundation ready, an emergency battery to slap into place when the generator fails, if you will.

I ask that you look over this draft and send in any last-minute suggestions or comments or criticisms. A final draft will be produced and will be added onto the back of the Northwest Migration Handbook as the final section.

88!

The NAR Constitution - October 2006 Draft

Preamble

In the name of the Divine Creator of all things we, the Aryan peoples of the earth, do hereby set forth this Constitution of the Northwest American Republic, in order that we may secure the existence of our people and a future for White children.

Section One - Nationhood and Citizenship

Article I.

Article VIII. Standards of race and citizenship shall be established by a Bureau of Race and Resettlement, which shall set all racial parameters and codes, establish scientific and cultural standards of racial identity, and which shall make determination in individual cases where applicable.

Article IX. Whereas the basis of all human civilization has been, and shall remain, the traditional nuclear family based on the institution of marriage, with the wife and mother as the heart and the gainfully employed father as the head, the Northwest American Republic herewith acknowledges this traditional family unit and the values historically attached to it as the foundation of the state, and declares that the protection of the family shall be and shall remain a primary goal and supporting pillar of the Republic, its laws and institutions.

Article III. This Constitution shall be enforced and interpreted by a standing Constitutional Committee of the National Convention, to whom constitutional issues may be referred for determination by the Convention as a whole, by the executive branch, by state agencies, and by the courts.

Article IV. The basis of the body politic of the Northwest American Republic shall be the roster of all persons holding citizenship in the Republic, which citizenship roll shall function as the lowest level of government and the foundation of the state.

Thoughtcrime Gets an Accolade

As some of you may know, a lot of Jewish and neocon "think tanks," publications, and other mysterious forces employ a permanent staff of cyber-goons and cyber-hecklers to stalk the blogosphere and try to shout down opposition to Jug Ears and his deranged wars of Imperial conquest, criticism of Israel and Jews in general, etc.

I am honored to note that Thoughtcrime seems to have attracted some of these creatures' attention. You can recognize the signs when you get a number of heckling and derisive "comments" which are obviously taken off the same template, which consist merely of abuse without addressing any of the points I raise, and which are correctly spelled.

As they said in Dr. Zhivago, it would appear that "my attitude has been noted." I consider this a signal honor and will try to live up to the Jews' worst expectations of me.

There's Nothing Wrong With Racism

[This has been going the rounds of the internet. No idea who wrote it. - HAC]

Someone else besides me finally said it. how many are actually paying attention to this? There are African Americans, Mexican Americans, Asian Americans, Arab Americans, Native Americans, etc. and then there are just Americans. You pass me on the street and sneer in my direction. You call me white boy, cracker, honkey, whitey, caveman" and that's OK. But when I call you nigger, kike, towelhead, sand-nigger, camel jockey, beaner, gook, or chink you call me a racist.

You say that whites commit a lot of violence against you, so why are the ghettos the most dangerous places to live? You have the United Negro College Fund. You have Martin Luther King Day. You have Black History Month. You have Cesar Chavez Day. You have Ma'uled Al-Nabi. You have the NAACP. You have BET.

If we had WET (White Entertainment Television) we'd be racists. If we had a White Pride Day you would call us racists. If we had White History Month, we'd be racists. If we had any organization for only whites to advance our lives, we'd be racists.

We have a Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, a Black Chamber of Commerce, and then we just have the plain Chamber of Commerce. Wonder who pays for that?

If we had a college fund that only gave white students scholarships, you know we'd be racists. There are over 60 openly proclaimed Black Colleges in the US, yet if there were "White colleges" that would be a racist college.

In the Million Man March, you believed that you were marching for your race and rights. If we marched for our race and rights, you would call us racists.

You are proud to be black, brown, yellow and orange, and you're not afraid to announce it. But when we announce our white pride, you call us racists. You rob us, carjack us, and shoot at us. But, when a white police officer shoots a black gang member or beats up a black drug-dealer running from the law and posing a threat to society, you call him a racist.

I am proud. But, you call me a racist.

Why is it that only whites can be racists? There is nothing improper about this email. Let's see which of you are proud enough to forward it.

American High Tech Workers Hitting the Bricks

It is a commonly understood if seldom voiced truth about America's wide-open borders immigration policy, that Hispanics are being brought in to replace blacks as manual labor (to be sure, blacks were never much use as manual laborers anyway) and Asians, including Hindus and weird creatures like Indonesians, are being brought in to replace whites.

Nowhere is this trend more clearly manifest than in the fields of engineering and information technology (IT.) Call centers and customer service jobs aren't the only American jobs being outsourced to India; American engineering and IT jobs are following at a rapid rate.

The main problem with big corporations employing American IT workers is that they keep wanting things, like decent pay and medical insurance and job security and respect from their employers, which multi-national corporations have discovered they don't have to provide in the Third World. Given the choice between really investing in human resources and hiring a competent, skilled, intelligent and talented White American workforce, or hiring Asian "engineers" or "systems analysts" with useless degrees from Vindaloo U. for $30,000 per year, the multinationals go for brown and cheap every time.

American big business thinks maybe ten minutes ahead on a good day, which is one reason why this God-awful empire is eventually going to go down with a mighty crash and take civilization with it.

High-tech companies are either outsourcing American jobs or what is worse, bringing unqualified and incompetent Third World engineers and computer people into this country who have shoddy degrees from equally shoddy (or in some cases simply non-existent) universities that come nowhere near American standards. These unqualified Third World "professionals" are now in the process of making a dog's dinner out of what is left of the American infrastructure and information highway.

The result is that a whole generation of American IT graduates who were turned out by the truckload in the 1990s in order to meet the demands of the Microsoft and internet explosion are now largely unemployed and saddled with huge student loans many of them will never pay off, courtesy of capitalism's insensate lust for cheap labor at any cost to quality, safety, or reliability of products. Another one of those quiet, unsung little tragedies of ruined lives which lurks behind the scenes of George W. Bush's Amurrica.

Iran Attack Houdini Act?

I notice that the big impending assault on Iran, which the media were so full of recently, seems to have dropped right off the radar screen. Curious.

It could be, of course, that Jug-Ears and his handlers have simply called off the media dogs to cool things down before the November elections, and that right after election day the nukes will start flying. Jug is an obsessive-compulsive type, and I doubt his obsession with Iran has simply gone away.

Or else--dare we hope?--there are still some sane people in the government who have gotten a grip on Bush and Rove and Rumsfeld and those Jewish neocons who have hermetically sealed the President in the Oval Office. I hope so. I have spoken for years about the Balloon Going Up, and needless to say, now that for the first time in recent history there is a genuine chance of such a catastrophic event, we're nowhere near ready.

I really do hope the System can manage to right itself one more time and give us at least a few more final years to try and get our act together.

Katrina Crime Wave Still Hammering Houston

The massive crime wave which began a year ago with the massive dispersion of hundreds of thousands of blacks from New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina continues, and shows no signs of abating. Cities all around the country are reporting alarming spikes in the crime rates due to Katrina refugees, but Houston, Texas has been especially hard hit.

According to a recent Associated Press article, "Houston took in 150,000 evacuees - the most of any U.S. city - after Katrina struck on Aug. 29. Houston police believe the evacuees are partly responsible for a nearly 17.5 percent increase in homicides so far this year over the same period in 2005. About 21 percent of Houston's 232 homicides through July 25 involved an evacuee as either a suspect or a victim, according to police, who attribute much of the bloodshed to fighting among rival New Orleans gang members." There have also been reports of shooting wars between local drug gangs and invaders from New Orleans who are seeking to muscle in on the most profitable drug corners and housing project rackets, etc.

The Houston police are not impressed with the standard of law enforcement in the Big Sleazy. The article quoted the head of the Houston homicide division, Captain Dale Brown, as saying "New Orleans allowed a lot of these guys to stay on the street for whatever reason or be picked up and released after 60 days...Texas law, I don't want to say it's tougher, but we take these offenses very seriously."

According to the AP, "Judge Robert Eckels, chief executive of Harris County, which includes Houston, said Katrina evacuees arrested in the Houston have cost the county's criminal justice system more than $18 million. In June, Texas Gov. Rick Perry sent $19.5 million to Houston to help pay for additional officers and overtime to police the city after Katrina."

Katrina evacuees, almost all black, were shipped all over the country by the tens of thousands, including into predominantly white areas such as Vermont and Iowa whose liberal governing elite claimed to desire more "diversity" in their localities.

In a number of cities such as Houston, Baton Rouge, Atlanta and San Francisco, "Little New Orleans" neighborhoods have sprung up, mostly in taxpayer-subsidized government and municipal housing projects. In most of these areas an immediate jump in violent crime such as assaults and homicides and in property crimes such as robbery and burglary were noted, and some of this even got into the controlled media last autumn despite the general blanket of silence which is thrown over black misdeeds.

The overall negative effect which the forcible transplantation of hundreds of thousands of negros has had on the recipient localities, if it is ever honestly assessed, will prove to be huge. The likelihood of any such honest analysis ever occurring in the present society is, however, almost non-existent.

The Germans Who Won (1914-1918)

The Weird Aryan History Series - Lesson #25

The Germans Who Won

Colonel Paul Emil von Lettow-Vorbeck (1870-1964) was remarkable among military commanders of the First World War in that he served for the entire period without ever having suffered defeat.

Often compared with the better-known T.E. Lawrence - Lawrence of Arabia - Lettow-Vorbeck similarly was a master of guerrilla warfare, this time in East Africa. With a force never great than 14,000 in total - comprised of 3,000 German and 11,000 Askari (native African) troops - Lettow-Vorbeck ran rings around Allied forces (for the most part British and South African) that were ten times larger than his own.

Lettow-Vorbeck realised quickly that the German campaign against Allied forces in East Africa needed to be conducted on his own terms, largely by seizing (and retaining) the initiative.

Prior to the war Lettow-Vorbeck had seen service during the Boxer Rebellion, and in German Southwest Africa (Namibia) during the Hottentot and Herero Rebellion of 1904-08, during which he was wounded and sent to South Africa to recuperate.

Six months before the the outbreak of war in 1914, Lettow-Vorbeck - then a Lieutenant-Colonel - was given command of Germany's forces in East Africa, which included twelve companies of Askari troops.

In August he began his war by attacking the British railway in Kenya. Three months later a large mixed British and Indian invasion force landed at Tanga Bay to conquer German East Africa; in numerical terms at least they outnumbered Lettow-Vorbeck's available force by some eight to one. Nevertheless, right from the start he demonstrated great tactical planning.

With the Allied landing a success, Lettow-Vorbeck pulled his forces some distance back, not in full retreat as seemed apparent, but simply in order to draw the British and Indian forces further inland, catching them in a crossfire and inflicting heavy casualties, quickly obliging a British retreat back to Tanga Bay to consolidate.

Over the next couple of years Lettow-Vorbeck launched raids into the British colonies of Kenya and Rhodesia, the aim being to destroy forts situated there, along with railway track and carriages. His Askari troops, trained in the Prussian manner, gained in confidence and experience with each successful raid.

Jan Smuts - himself an enemy of the British during the Boer War of 1899-1902, but now serving with them - was tasked in March 1916 with dealing with Lettow-Vorbeck, and in doing so launched an attack from South Africa with a force of 45,000 men. As with the British beforehand, Lettow-Vorbeck led Smuts a merry dance, although curiously this did not subsequently harm Smuts political career in any way.

In 1917 the Allies turned up the heat on Lettow-Vorbeck, with attacks launched from such disparate locations as Kenya, Rhodesia, Congo and Mozambique - the latter two spearheaded by Belgian and Portuguese forces, respectively.

With his forces running low on supplies - both ammunition and food - Lettow-Vorbeck was forced to live off the land, although a successful raid upon a Portuguese arms dump near the Mozambique border largely resolved his arms shortage.

Lettow-Vorbeck launched fresh raids against Rhodesian forts in 1918, tackling one after another. He was in the midst of planning further large raids when news of the 11 November Armistice reached him (from a British prisoner).

Far from beaten, and with a force of some 3,000 men available to him, Lettow-Vorbeck nonetheless decided to surrender to the British on 25 November at Mbaala, Zambia.

Returning to Germany as a national hero (and having been promoted general in the field), Lettow-Vorbeck was likewise admired by his former enemies as a courageous, tenacious and honourable fighter. Once in Germany he immediately joined the Freikorps, and at the head of a brigade successfully crushed Spartacist forces in Hamburg. Lettow-Vorbeck was however obliged to resign from the army having declared his support for the right-wing Kapp Putsch in 1920.

His memoirs of his wartime experiences were subsequently published (in English translation) as My Reminiscences of East Africa. When Smuts, his former opponent, in the aftermath of the Second World War, heard that Lettow-Vorbeck was living in destitution, he arranged (along with former South African and British officers) for a small pension to be paid to him until his death on 9 March 1964 at the age of 94.

That Mythical "Fence"

There is little difference anymore between the major political parties in that all members of each are scalawags or for those of you not familiar with this Southern word, try reprobates!

Getting ready for the major upcoming elections the GOP headed by President Bush is trying to make itself more attractive by political propaganda. The claim is that they did something about the border and/or immigration by passing a bill to build a 700 mile fence on the border. Sounds great but, what most Americans don't know is that Republicans gave the President "wiggle" room by allowing President Bush the option of spending the funds else where. Nice, no?

Most Americans love the lower price of gasoline and the GOP can claim they are responsible but, what most Americans don't know is that President Bush allowed oil to be released from American "strategic" reserve, oil set aside for national emergencies. Nice, no?

It is time for new political parties, statesmen or leaders. Our present system is corrupt and allows only rich Americans (?) to run for government office. Americans can no longer rely on truthful ballot counts and even if they could illegal aliens are voting in mass! America must change or die from within.
