        Britain sleeping in fridge
        25-07-14

        THE entire population of the UK has moved downstairs to sleep inside the fridge.

        The move took place initially because the fridge was the only place in the house cool enough to sleep in, but is increasingly seen as just handy.

        Condiments, drinks and vegetables have been moved aside to make room for a duvet and pillows.

        Tom Booker of Northampton said: “You want a drink? They’re right there. You want some of this leftover KFC? Just reach out your arm.

        “The light stays off while the door’s closed, and that annoying buzzing noise it makes? You can’t hear that from inside.

        “I snuggle up to this avocado, which I’ve grown close to during the three years it’s been in here, suck on a bottle of wine like a dummy, and drift off to a peaceful sleep knowing I’m close to everything I love.

        “I don’t know why I didn’t do this years ago.”

      Labour Party election candidate James Warmer who filmed up a underage girl’s skirt escaped jail yesterday, but he must take part in a three-year sexual treatment programme.

      Norwich Crown Court was shown CCTV footage of Craig Warmer, 22, stooping down to lift up an under age girl’s skirt and then filming it at Boots in Castle Mall, Norwich.

      The court heard that Warmer had lifted another girl’s skirt outside a school, and had sexually assaulted a female he followed in Dereham.

      Warmer, of Hyde Road, Dereham, appeared at Norwich Crown Court for sentencing, after pleading guilty at an earlier hearing to two counts of outraging public decency and one count of sexual assault.

      He was handed a community order with three years’ supervision and the requirement to attend the Thames Valley sex offender group work treatment program. A sexual offences prevention order was also made for three years, and he was placed on the sexual offenders’ register for the same amount of time.

      Prosecutor, Christopher Morgan said the first offence took place in Dereham on November 27 last year. “Warmer started walking behind a young female before grabbing her buttock hard in Sandy Lane,” he said. She took a photograph of his back, and DNA from her coat matched Warmer’s.

      The next two offences took place while he was on bail. A girl was walking to school from Castle Meadow on January 30.
      As she got to the school gate she was aware that her skirt was being lifted up, so she tried to put it down. The man lifted it up again and he kept hold of it.

      The last incident took place in Boots on February 2. Mr Morgan said: “The defendant was seen on CCTV to lift up a girl’s skirt in the aisle, and then film it on his iPhone.” The girl was underage.

      Jonathan Morgans, for Warmer, said he had strong family support. He said his “bizarre deviancies” showed he had no control of his desires, but added he wanted to make sure it did not happen again.

          Let’s see what Chewish law says, for balance:

          Baba Mezia 114a-114b. Only Chews are human (“Only ye are designated men”).

          Moed Kattan 17a . If a Chew is tempted to do evil he should go to a city where he is not known and do the evil there.

          Sanhedrin 55b . A Chew may marry a three year old girl (specifically, three years “and a day” old).

          Sanhedrin 54b . A Chew may have sex with a child as long as the child is less than nine years old.

          Kethuboth 11b . “When a grown-up man has intercourse with a little girl it is nothing.”

          Baba Kamma 37b. Gentiles are outside the protection of the law and God has “exposed their money to Israel.”

          Baba Kamma 113a. Chews may use lies (“subterfuges”) to circumvent a Gentile.

          Yebamoth 98a. All Gentile children are animals.

          Abodah Zarah 36b . Gentile girls are in a state of niddah (filth) from birth.

          Sanhedrin 59a: “Murdering Goyim is like killing a wild animal.”

          Abodah Zara 26b: “Even the best of the Gentiles should be killed.”

          Schabouth Hag. 6b: “Chews may swear falsely by use of subterfuge wording.

          ” Zohar 1,160a: “Chews must always try to deceive Christians.

          ” Hilkkoth Akum Z1: “Do not save Goyim (Gentiles) in danger of death.

          ” Choschen Ham 388, 15: “If it be proven that someone has given the money of israelites to the Goyim, a way must be found after prudent consideration to wipe him off the face of this earth.”

          Choschen Ham 266, 1: “A Chew may keep anything he finds which belongs to the Akum (Gentile). For he who returns lost property (to Gentiles) sins against the law by increasing the power of the transgressors of the law. It is praiseworthy, however, to return lost property if it is done to honor the name of God, namely if by so doing Christians will praise the Chews and look upon them as honorable people.”

        Check to see if you can get the books – or readers – online before buying. Amazon 2nd hand best for hardcopy.

        The above exchange summarizes in two tweets most of what you need to know about soft power projection and why hard power projection should be carefully applied. It also wraps in a nutshell the importance of the rational actor.

        Now, P’utin has an excuse on rationality as he / his regime are wedded closely to the R’ussian O’rthodox C’hurch. That is why the point about absence of scripture decreeing that one should lie after a plane full of innocent civilians has been shot down, and then leave the bodies out for a few days whilst arguing over whose responsibility it is to move them, is important.

        Absent scripture those decisions must have been those of the State itself, and hence by R’ussia’s logic: Rational. Mull that for a bit.

        It’s a tricky one isn’t it ?
        lot’s of kids understand violence but for most people it is an idea.
        It is like a word which you know the meaning of then one day it dawns on you what the word means in a deeper understanding.
        Most people in the UK don’t understand violence, as in you will do as I say or I will break all the bones in your arm with this hammer, including me but probably to a lesser extent because I have thought about it a lot recently.
        Violence is like a movie where people get hit and fall down and then there is chivalry, people are not like that.
        My dad said ” you do not want to experience war”.
        There are people who are aggressive, like your ex who steals the house and your CD collection or a business partner who fucks you over, there are people who will sentence you to jail for theft, there are people who will rudely brush you aside in the street. then there are people who know what they want and who will do anything to get it and they might want what you have. like a gangster preys on another with real threat of pain and suffering.
        In these standoff situations really need a wartime consigliere who understands violence who can avoid things going tits up as they say.
        but the real dilemma is if it comes to defending the island would I die for a society that contains a large percentage that pay lip service to national (British) pride.

        R’ussia’s direct involvement in destabilization of E’ast U’kraine:

        S’trelkov may be hung out to dry but his tactics discussed here are in line with his MO. Those being specifically to disrupt trade for those he has meant to liberate – mainly to induce food shortages.

        Blowing up blocks of flats etc. on pretext that the enemy are hiding within maximizes terror and creates tension by displacing people and putting extra strain on reduced resources – eg. Accommodation.

        (An analogy is with the scorched earth policy the US adopted in V’ietnam – a policy which failed.)

        When R’ussia sent him in the aim was full destabilization in order to justify sending in a peacekeeping force, not to form a separate republic. That point is indirectly explained to B’orodai in his segment of conversation.

        The religious aspect is also touched upon here, in particular the near reference to P’utin as being some kind of divine figure. He is not of course as that is reserved for the actual O’rthodox clerics, but it is getting close. Whether the tone was meant seriously or is hinting at subtle brewing sedition is a different matter.

        Definitely worth an objective listen if interested in how one would go about bringing a city to a halt, and also to get an insight into how the behind the scenes interactions play out.

        S’trelkov is shaping up to be E’ast U’kraine’s C’olonel K’urtz.

      It is just a psychological warfare tactic.

      Better to see it in its gory detail to help with desensitization:

      http://twitter.com/abouanastunisi/status/492372083834621953

      The warfare technique relies upon shock value and stimulation of predominantly negative emotional responses – in particular fear, revulsion and helplessness – with the aim of de-motivating the enemy to give up and surrender to the enemy.

      It also ‘empowers’ those who commit the acts. That is what is hoped by projecting. However, documenting such acts ultimately destroys the political credibility of those who do this, so it is self defeating. These images are useful also in prosecuting war crimes.

      Twitter is a good platform for Psyops, but as it is possible to view many of these images and desensitize, it does lose it’s edge a bit.

      Anyone who finds the above image disturbing should, but bear in mind that the negative reaction is a weakness that an enemy will exploit.

      All in warfare use similar techniques. Some are more effective than others.

      The images above are unpleasant but are really not that effective.

          People do seem to forget great E’uropean traditions such as the gibet and the wheel.

          Even the dispatch of this blog’s namesake was perhaps more barbaric than what I’SIS get up to. (amateurs…)

            The torture leading to the execution was certainly barbaric. The rack snapped ligaments, popped bones from sockets and resulted in unbelievable pain and agony. Not that he didn’t deserve it, that was the going rate at the time for treason. Jumping off the scaffold and breaking his neck spared him the further pain and indignity of disembowelment.

          • The point is he was still mutilated in public etc. to get a message across.

            That would only have worked on those still sensitive to the sight – the others would have just been indifferently engaging in a bit of gallows humour or treating it as circus.

            Abuse of such practices was one of the catalysts for the revolution in F’rance.

            That in part helped shift thinking in the UK towards reforms which saw those practices phased out, but they were still put to use extensively in some of the colonies from time to time.

      That’s quite mild for the BBC. I’d have expected something more like:

      UK economy fails to exceed 2008 level

      The UK economy grew a miserable 0.8% in the second quarter and has only just managed to hoist itself with agonising slowness back to the size it enjoyed six years ago in the economic miracle achieved under the Labour government, official figures admit.

    Interview with UK RT Journalist G’raham P’hillips:

    http://rt.com/news/175696-rt-contributor-ukraine-captivity/

    He was deported by SBU from U’kraine earlier today after being detained for 3 days. Appears to have been looked after well – currently in P’oland.

    He has been banned from entering U’kraine for about 3 years, so should be heading home. Will be interesting to see how RT look after him.

    -grams… Hows about we send one to the Middle East? Where they are literally dying for lack of a wake-up to reality call.
    The Palestinian Final Solution reaches full swing. Who would have imagined that form of inhuman outrage would prove so seductive to sufferers, that their descendants would willingly buy into the selfsame ideology? And who says extremist religious fanaticism, is the province of those burdened with dark-age mentality baggage? Now Think-Pray-Explain, what part of a right to self defense the illegal acquisition of territory and property through terror comes under?
