The Problem Began With Cows- The Oregon Wildlife Refuge Standoff

The Problem Began With Cows- The Oregon Wildlife Refuge Standoff

The problem begins with the cows.

They don’t belong here in the first place.

Europeans coming over to the U.S. insisted on bringing Europe over with them. Rather than adapt to a new environment they brought their European environment over with them. As a result you see invasive plant species in America that originated in Europe- dandelions, chamomile, mullein, poison hemlock to name a few. Even the all American tumbleweed actually came from the Ukraine.

And they insisted on bringing their cows with them too. Most of our domestic cows are originally from Europe, a few humped varieties came from India. They were not native to this land. Cows need a lot of land to graze. Prairie land. Treeless land.

Americans lust for steaks and hamburgers has led to vast land destruction here and in other countries. Large parts of the forested Midwest has been razed to make farmlands and cow pastures. This is famously true in Brazil where the largest rain forest in the world, the Amazon, is being decimated simply to make razed land available for cows, most of the meat of which is shipped to the U.S.

They also need large amounts of water. This problem was especially prevalent in Australia where large swaths of the outback were turned into huge ranches. The Aborigines resented the beasts because they would drink up and dirty what little water there was. Also the huge ranches were fenced off cutting off the hunting culture of the Aborigines from getting the game and natural resources that they needed to survive.

Cattle were used as an abundant food source to support stamina for the work needed to survive in the new world. We Americans now terribly overeat the amount of all meat that we have, especially beef. As a result we are overweight and have overstuffed arteries and colons.

When the ranchers first started coming to the vast stretches of the American west they selfishly grabbed up as much land as they could for themselves and their cows. In the beginning of James Michener’s book Colorado there was a map of the early territory of the state showing that one rancher had grabbed up the entire northeast corner of the state. These men might have been pioneers and entrepreneurs but they were also extremely selfish individuals who cared little for anything but their own well being and profit. The famous cattlemen and sheepherder wars of the 1800’s in Wyoming are a good example of the big land grab going on.

Even far away places such as Hawaii were invaded. The biggest cattle ranch in the world is on the Big Island.

Forest land was devastated to make room for the bovines. I was shocked one time when I left the flat farmlands of Wisconsin and entered the Menominee Indian reservation. Suddenly I was surrounded by incredibly thick and diverse woodlands, lush beyond belief. “Could this be what this land was like before the farmers took over?” I thought. It was wondrously lavish and beautiful.

Much of the land claimed by the government was probably turned into National Parks and preserves just to keep it from being entirely taken up by ranchers and farmers. Unchecked, there wouldn’t be any public land left for the rest of us. John Muir had to fight off developers to create Yosemite. Of course, that doesn’t mean that the feds don’t get a little greedy too. One has to wonder why the BLM controls such huge patches of the Western U.S.

Now, what would happen if you or I trespassed on a ranchers land the way they trespassed on the Oregon Preserve? Shortly after getting there you would have any number of fast riding pickup trucks headed your way with loaded shotgun touting cowboys letting you know bluntly that you don’t belong there. And you might very well get shot or beat for your efforts.

Land grabbing government and land grabbing ranchers – birds of the same feather really.

North Korean Jokes (As Though The Country Isn’t Enough Of a Joke On Its Own).

Why did the North Koreans run over the border to eat South Korean’s lawns?
They heard the grass was greener on the other side.

How many North Koreans does it take to change a light bulb?
Three – One to hold another on his shoulders to change it and one to explain what a light bulb is in the first place.

Why should we not be afraid of a North Korean H bomb?
Because they would have to use a fishing boat to deliver it and they never make it beyond fifty miles off shore. Continue Reading

Muslims Couldn’t Care Less About Trump’s Edgy Religious Conversions

Muslims Couldn’t Care Less About Trump’s Edgy Religious Conversions

Donald Trump has recently decided to further alienate Muslims by staging a controversial religious conversion.

Or rather, a whole sevenfold string of counterfeit conversions. However, his plan appears to have backfired.

Trump decided to convert to the Baha’i, Yazidi, Mandaean, Druze, Ahmadiyya Muslim, Zoroastrian and Babi faiths.

Ben Carson: Episcopalians are WORSE than ISIS!

Ben Carson has recently made another epic Godwin fail. But who has had the dire misfortune of incurring his wrath this time?

Fifa & ISIS.

Uh, sorry!

Episcopalians & ISIS. One is a thuggish gang of jackbooted religious sectarians who want to undermine and destabilize our culture so the whole world can be exactly like them.

The other is a flamboyant gang of well-groomed cloak-swishing effeminates who are having a scandalous impact on the spiritual wellbeing of this world!

Well, I’ll let you all try and guess which is which.

Three Women Discuss Horrific Experiences at the Hands of Roosh V! (2/2)

Three Women Discuss Horrific Experiences at the Hands of Roosh V! (2/2)

Mitsuko told me:

Roosh approached me when I was standing outside a club. He said: ‘Listen… um, don’t be offended, but you Harujuku bitches look… uh… really, really… uh, hot. Em, yeah! I mean, uh, kind of… uh no, I mean for real! No shit!… Uh. Oh well. This isn’t really what I…. yeah well anyways! Gotta dash!

I asked him ‘Is this how you talk to women in your own country?’

All of a sudden, he just snaps and screams:

‘WELL, SORRY IF YOU WERE OFFENDED!’

I said, ‘I am not offended, I just think you are really weird and creepy.’

At this, he said, ‘WAAAHHH! You LITERALLY just don’t understand! I’m actually a REALLY, REALLY, REALLY nice guy!’ Continue Reading

Three Women Discuss Horrific Experiences at the Hands of Roosh V! (1/2)

Vaguely-non-SWP rape apologist and notable PUA wannabe Roosh V has been trying to make a name for himself in the UK recently…

Albeit with not one whit more success than the solemn-jawed, soberly Stalinistic, mournfully dick-waving Trotksyite fanatics of ‘Real Socialism.’

But what do women think about Roosh V? Here, three women tell us about Roosh’s drunken nightclub antics, in order to shine a light on the Manosphere’s sexiest thwarted frat boy lookalike. Continue Reading

THE DAYS AFTER CHENEY BECAME PRESIDENT
Changing Alliances
Part 22

(A serial book excerpt)

Previous installments – After Flight 93 crashes into the White House on 9/11/2001 killing President Bush as was originally planned, Dick Cheney, the Vice President, is made the leader of the country. He begins immediately to make changes.

Sinchesi Yang waited in his pill box alone. The morning sun had just crested the mountains behind him sending a bright blaze of color and light across the sea stretching before him. Somewhere just beyond that blaze was the mainland of China. He watched the horizon carefully, knowing that somewhere over there were men who would kill him and any other soldier they came across on sight. He knew they would be ruthless. And they would come quickly. It was only a question of when. Taiwanese intelligence had briefed them on being extra vigilant these next few days. That and other preparations had tipped him off. He knew they were coming. All the higher officials were ill at ease and smoking more than they usually did. It was a sixth sense that he at times had since childhood. Continue Reading

Radical Feminists Thwart Hillary’s ‘Fauxfem’ Campaign for Commander-in-Chief

Radical Feminists Thwart Hillary’s ‘Fauxfem’ Campaign for Commander-in-Chief

The Democratic Party have dismissed as ‘unjustifiably and unnecessarily contrarian’ a feminist blog which threatened to expose what the writers are calling the ‘faux-feminist’ prospects of a liberal Clinton Presidency.

The culprits have recently posted the following article:

 Clinton Dynasty or Limpet Dynasty? 

The only hope Hillary Clinton offers to women is the hope of ‘progressing’ to be a second-rate Bush or Obama or LBJ or Nixon.

If you’re saying all American women can hope and aspire to, is merely being the next Hillary, you’re trying to consign entire generations of women to an appalling fate. American women have too much intelligence, creativity and character to submit to endorsing the myth of Clinton Mobility. Continue Reading

Neocon Surveillance & Neocon Surveillance Network are Now Online: Critique, Commentary & Satire!

Neocon Surveillance & Neocon Surveillance Network are Now Online: Critique, Commentary & Satire!

Wallace Runnymede and Appleseed Ike have recently launched Neocon Surveillance and Neocon Surveillance Network! These two anti-war and pro-peace sites provide both prose commentary and satire, in order severely and indeed mercilessly critique the current Neocon/Liberal Interventionist consensus.

A. Neocon Surveillance Network provides some basic factual data, e.g. free advertizing opportunities, news of protests, and information on anniversaries related to war and peace.

B. Neocon Surveillance, the key website of the two, is an uncompromisingly contrarian and dissident grassroots blogging outlet. As strong believers in self-criticism among pacifists and non-interventionists, a non-negotiable aspect of our critical responsibility is to explore faults in anti-war movements, organizations, texts, works of arts and individuals; rather than merely criticizing warmongers and their apologists alone. For this reason, we explicitly repudiate far-left and far-right ‘anti-war’ ideology alike.

In this spirit, we are looking for more centre-left and centre-right people (either pacifists or non-interventionists) to join our team: please email wallacerunnymede@gmail.com or appleseedike@gmail.com. If you are not sure if we are for you, or vice versa, please email us anyway, and we can discuss your possible contributions to our cause. Continue Reading

Rumsfeld took the news surprisingly well. His dismissal had been engineered so carefully that it came as no insult, although it was a bit embarrassing to the old man. But he knew that it was getting to be time to go out to pasture. He had worked hard enough in his life that he could now enjoy the fruits of his labor. He knew that with all the sudden changes in the world that a younger man was perhaps needed to take care of things. He guessed that Bolton had been chosen to push through any agenda Cheney wanted, something that Rumsfeld himself was getting too old to do. Continue Reading

The pre-launch for Neocon Surveillance has just been accomplished! The site can be found here: http://neoconsurveillance.blogspot.co.uk/

This site is devoted to mainstream (centre left through centre right, or vice versa!) critique and satire of neoconservativism, liberal interventionism, responsibility to protect, and general self-serving warmongering and opportunism. If you wish to write for this site, please drop your co-irritants a line: wallacerunnymede@gmail.com, appleseedike@gmail.com

Better still, Jan 21 is just the preliminary pre-launch, to give a taster of the site. The full launch will be on 1 March 2016, with a wide array of articles! In terms of genres and styles, we will be very pluralistic: opinion pieces, fake news, poetry, cartoons, personal reflections, and more! We are open to a wide range of contributions. If you are not sure, just ask! We are very open-minded in general about genres and styles, as well as about opinions, although in order to maintain the quite specific character and integrity of the site, we do ask that contributors are committed to either pacifism or non-interventionism. (Both are equally suitable for our purposes here at Neocon Surveillance. Again, if you aren’t sure what this might entail, just ask!)

Til Death Hairdo Us Part: Trump’s Hair Speaks at Condom Conference

Til Death Hairdo Us Part: Trump’s Hair Speaks at Condom Conference

Warren, Michigan – Donald Trump’s body may no longer be a living entity, but his hair, a combination of locks, tresses and curls, continues to carry on the great legacy of the man who will forever be known as the front-runner of the 2016 presidential election until he succumbed to death in a game of Battleship against Nancy Pelosi last week. Trump’s hair most recently spoke at the Chris Christie Condom Conference held on Friday afternoon that was sponsored by Republican Chris Christie’s presidential campaign. Trump and Christie, competitors in the upcoming election, remained close friends and were together at the time of his passing.

“Donald was always a fan of safe sex,” Trump’s hair stated as it magically floated like a butterfly on the stage at the popular Riverside Theater on Elm Street. Regarded as “Mr. Trump,” the hair has continued to run business as usual, following in the footsteps of its longtime host and owner. “He had the same answer for ISIS as he did for keeping sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) at bay. Put a highly durable latex coating over it,” Mr. Trump added, while pointing to a poster on the wall behind him containing the fifty shades of great condoms. Continue Reading

Open Letter to Glenn Greenwald: Greenwald & the Ghostly-Chilling Effects (3/3)

Open Letter to Glenn Greenwald: Greenwald & the Ghostly-Chilling Effects (3/3)

All in all, I’m very relieved The Intercept never got back to me about that speculative CV. Perhaps I dodged a bullet there! It is evidently beneath Glenn Greenwald to say ‘Je Suis Charlie.’ So I am glad that, professionally speaking, I will never have to endure the rank humiliation of saying #JeSuis Intercept.’

Glenn, you are a person of quite astounding talent and passion. It’s just such a pity you seem to risk ruining your legacy. If you are for freedom of speech, as you claim, then you must be for it consistently. Continue Reading

Open Letter to Glenn Greenwald: Greenwald & the Ghostly-Chilling Effects (2/3)

Open Letter to Glenn Greenwald: Greenwald & the Ghostly-Chilling Effects (2/3)

Did you know that Greenwald once addressed CAIR,  which latter has been accused by the FBI of links to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood?

And did you also know that Greenwald writes, apparently without a trace of irony, about ‘the military coup (sic!) against the democratically elected Egyptian government of the Muslim Brotherhood’ (sic!)?

Presumably, this is not to be confused with the ‘democratically elected’ government of Germany, the National Socialists. Or how about the Ukrainian coup, or dare I say, ‘regime change?’ See this on some apparently unproven allegations that some have made about The Intercept’s billionaire funder Omidyar, and Greenwald’s consummately feeble rationalization, which will be perfectly convincing… Continue Reading

Open Letter to Glenn Greenwald: Greenwald & the Ghostly-Chilling Effects (1/3)   

Open Letter to Glenn Greenwald: Greenwald & the Ghostly-Chilling Effects (1/3)  

I’m going to hold my hands up. It is problematic to write negatively about someone you have once sent a CV to. People may think you are bitter and biased. And I wouldn’t normally do such a thing; prudential-wise and principle-wise alike, there are risks.

However, there are limits to such general principles, after all! And as my loyalty is to satire and to satirists (living and massacred alike), and not to the journalist I am going to talk about in the third person until the very end of this open letter, I am going to stick my neck out. In general, I prefer to take the painfully perilous and even life-endangering path of Charb, and not the safe, quasi-respectable and achingly comfortable path of Glenn Greenwald, a key ‘establishment indymedia’ figure.

 ‘Establishment indymedia?’ Contradiction in terms? Continue Reading
