WHIPLASH

On the whole, this was a pretty good movie, if a little far-fetched, the part where Andrew comes away from being t-boned with only a gash on his hand. That notwithstanding, the film definitely makes one think about the cut throat and sadistic nature of trying to get to the top in most fields of endeavor in this world.

THE GREAT BIG BOOK OF HORRIBLE THINGS POST 3


Haitian Slave Revolt: Just as with the French Revolution, propaganda was spread among the plantations of Haiti. The leaders of the revolt made a power grab in the guise of freeing and improving the lives of the slaves. Additionally, the leader of the revolt made a deal with the devil and when you make a deal with the devil, you pay.

 

AMerican Civl War: The Civil War was not about slavery as evidenced by Lincoln’s quote about “if I could fight the war without freeing one single slave I would do it…” The Federal government and the northern states were bullying the South through economic policies and instances such as the Harper’s Ferry raid. The Confederate States declared their independence as they had the right to do. The North fired on Fort Sumter in a false flag attack and the war was on

 

If the Federals hadn’t consolidated power through the Civil War, the states would have been more autonomous. Sure, there inevitably would have been some local elitism as the author suggests but nothing like the creeping totalarianism we see in the U.S. Federal government today.

 

Russo-Turkish War: As far as the Armenian genocide is concerned, it must be remembered that the Turks and Armenians lived in peace at one time. Then, a group of Jews called the Young Turks, through Turkish masonic lodges, stirred up the trouble that would eventually result in this terrible event.

 

First World War: When you distill it down, World War I was caused by the fact that all the nations wanted to go to war. Additionally, of course, there is the banking and economic factor. Though I have not studied into all the events described in this book yet and am more familiar with the major conflicts from the Civil War onward, I bet if you look back in history into virtually all these conflicts you’ll find someone of means financing and getting rich off both sides.

 

Joseph Stalin: Soviet communism was financed mostly by rich, American, Jewish bankers.

 

The difference between Lenenist-Trotskyite communism and Stalinist communism is the former believes change should be achieved slowly while the latter believes change should be achieved quickly. Stalin persecuted Lenenist-Trotskyite (Jewish) communists and advanced Stalinist (Jewish) communism. The reason the Cold War took place was Stalen’s persecution of the Lenenist-Trotskyite communists who ran Hollywood, hence “Red Channels” and the McCarthy era, the better to flush out the Hollywood Stalinists.

 

Second World War: In books such as “I Paid Hitler”, as well as many other sources*, the financing of both sides of the war by Jewish international bankers is well established. The purpose of the Holocaust was to make the international case for a Jewish homeland in Palestine. Thus, those Jews content to stay in Europe were looted, rounded up and shot, then taken to concentration camps.

 

Prior to the war, Germany, Italy and Japan had signed a pact that the other two would intervene if one was attacked.

 

Roosevelt knew about Pearl Harbour and the book “Japan Bites Back” documents a lot of now hidden things going on at that time.

 

The world did not begin to fight against Hitler because of his evil character but because neither England or America ended up joining with the Nazis like they originally wanted to. Either way, more money in the coffers of those who profit from war.

 

As to the nature of the Holocaust itself, the author goes down the usual path of those who so ardently defend the official story, even indirectly employing the catch-all pejorative “Weird.” If it’s so well documented, why haven’t the official records get published for all to see. After all, then the matter would become plain and guys like me, David Irving, Jim Fetzer, et al could shut up in the face of such overwhelming truth and obviousness.

 

Additionally, if the official story is so blatantly obvious then why is this the only so-called fact (so far, anyway) you can be put in jail for disputing?

 

On the whole, ancient history is a lot less well documented than the arguments against the official story of the Holocaust.

 

*I would like to talk here about why I don’t have more links to things I say on this blog and why I don’t list more sources for my information.

 

First, to sources. A lot of the information I hear about things to do with revisionist history, the current machinations of the globalists and suchlike are gleaned from various radio programs on shortwave, the internet and elsewhere. As a blind man, this is a far readier source of information than books, though I do obviously read a lot of books on these subjects, when I can get my hands on them/afford them.

 

Secondly, the matter of links, which requires a much longer explanation.

 

~This blog was originally set up in September of 2008 because I had no one to talk to about things I was interested in, and that goes for everything from the Bible to the latest happenings in the radio industry to “Degrassi Junior High” to revisionist history and the new world order. To get personal for a moment, I have never really had a lot of friends due to it being that much harder to be part of the world and make friends when you can’t see. Thus, I ended up in the small town I grew up in, living at home in my twenties and the few friends I did have either moved away or never having lived here in the first place. Yes, I was going to church, but church can be really unhelpful, especially when you’re blind. Sure, a couple old guys would come up to me and talk at me about whatever they wanted to talk about, but nobody in that church ever took the time to truly get to know me as a person and relate to my interests.

 

All that to say that this blog is exactly what it says. This is Alex Horton’s blog where he writes about whatever’s on his mind that day. This is not like other blogs about a specific topic or group of topics run to attract people who have similar interests. I talk about the wide variety of things that come to my mind. People whose thoughts are wandering into the same area can enter a term into a search engine, get a result that is a post pertaining to the same thing and either agree or disagree. If they agree and comment, that’s great. If they disagree and comment, that’s great, too. Hopefully, we can get a dialogue going and I can try to provide you personally with some sources which will benefit others reading the comments, but other than that, this is just me expressing my current ideas about things, with certain obvious exceptions such as the ‘amazing jam’.

 

Therefore, searching for corroboration of the things I say in posts like this would take too long for the purposes I’m doing this blog in the first place.

 

~While the internet is (for now at least) wild and free and one can do as one wants, I do believe in a certain amount of responsibility on behalf of the webmaster. Thus, devoting serious time to the linking and sourcing of statements would behove me to check all links regularly to see they’re still active and don’t link to some porn site or other craziness. Referring to Reason #1 briefly, that would take too long for the above-stated purpose of the blog.

 

~If I put up a link, I would incur the likelihood of taking flack from people who thought that because I provided a link to that site, that meant I agreed with every single thing that was part of that site at the time the link was posted and in the future. I have no inclination to deal with those kind of idiots.

 

~It’s the internet. If something I say provokes you, you can go to your favourite search engine and corroborate that statement (or not) yourself. Additionally, odds are you are probably sighted. Thus, you have way more access to printed material than me as you can use your eyeballs to read the printed word whereas I have to rely on transcribed braille books, audiobooks and print books I scan into my computer. Furthermore, you are probably capable of driving and can access more libraries and bookstores than is available in my small town or through the Ontario public library system.

 

~In a fair number of cases, I would have to get permission to post relevant articles on this blog. See reason#1 for why I am not going to do that.

 

~Additionally, I would run the risk of, say, some one from one of the cloth diaper sites I linked to seeing I linked to them, coming to this blog, reading it, and not wanting to be associated with this blog in any way, shape or form, as well as the potentiality of idiots thinking the owners of that cloth diaper store have the same opinions as me just because I link to their online store. Sure, I’ll post links sometimes, but the more links I posted the deeper a possible hole I could be digging for myself, as I see it.

THE GREAT BIG BOOK OF HORRIBLE THINGS-POST 2


Gengus Kahn: I, too, hate it when the reputations of truly bad people are rehabilitated: Martin Luther King, for example.

 

Albagensian Crusade: The Albagensians were actually a Bible-believing group.

 

Atlantic Slave Trade-Conquest of the Americas: The author goes really over the top on this one. The whole thing about the only people who mattered being white men-though probably true to a certain degree-is nevertheless untrue when you actually take a practical, logical view of human interaction and if you are actually interested in looking at all of history, as opposed to certain bugaboos you seem to have, with as unbiased a view as possible as opposed to the cartoonish-James Bond movie scenarios that colour so much of history these days.

 

As to the comment about the Indians being “taken out back and taught to sing hymns”, to whatever extent that statement is true, there were Natives who truly found the living God.

 

Also, stop comparing slavery in the Bible to slavery in the antibellem South. People in the Bible went into slavery a good amount of the time to work off a debt. Every seven years, all debts were cancelled and all slaves set free. They were also given a good amount of food and other goods to take home with them as stipulated by the Law. Even more humanely, if a slave ran away from his master, the one who found him was not to return him.

MUSSEL SHOLES

This was a documentary and a half, filled with fascinating musical history and wonderful anecdotes.

Rick Hall's bitterness at the world seems to pervade this film.

Also, I wonder how Fame Studios and subsequently the town of Mussel Sholes have kept from falling victim to their own success and becoming just another busy tourist trap.

BLAST FROM THE PAST

Heard another interesting tape last night.

On the first side was Boston's album "Don't Look Back." After the end of the album, there were some recordings of CKFM doing the top 900 songs of all time.

Side B featured the AC/DC album "Let There Be Rock" with more of the countdown featured afterwords. A Simply Red song was introduced as song #412.

An unidentified male and female were featured separately. I have no idea what year the CKFM airchecks were from. The woman said "going back to 1988" for the Simply Red song, but the two albums are from over 10 years before that.

RADIO-RELATED STUFF

Didn't pick up any stations on 1100 Thursday night while WTAM was down for maintinance. I did, however, pick up the AM simulcast of a station on 103.1 FM whose slogan was "The Berkshires Classic Hits."

Picked up WBZA yesterday morning with Spizano as well as WDCX with "Discover the Word" and Alistaire Begg.

989 The Drive was coming in well last night.

BLAST FROM THE PAST

Just heard a tape from I presume March 1987.


The first side features an exerpt from "The CHUM Chart Oldies Show" hosted by Deryl B. The exerpt runs from 10:20 until the beginning of the 11:00 newscast with Richard Maxwell.

The second side is an exerpt of "The Beatles Brunch" hosted by Terri Michaels on CKFM. I assume this was taped on the same day as side A because side B is from the 11:00 hour. Two pleasant surprises on this side are a weather forecast from Michaels and Bill Anderson doing a promo for "The CKFM Countdown."
