Roxy Music with Take a Chance with me. From the 1980 album Avalon.

FYI, Avalon is/was a mythical island from Arthurian legends. Geoffrey of Monmouth refers to it as Insula Avallonis in his 1136 work Historia Regum Britanniae. Avalon is where Excalibur, Arthur's sword, would have been forged. And it's also where Arthur would have been carried after the Battle of Camlann, the final battle where he was victorious over Mordred. If you have seen the movie Excalibur, the final scene is of Arthur's body lying on the aft deck of a vessel on its way to Avalon.

Pink Floyd with Learning to Fly. Album A Momentary Lapse of Reason (1987).

First Pink Floyd album after Roger Waters' departure at the end of 1985.

Uh-oh. Over at Forbes, Paul Roderick Gregory asks whether Russiagate isn't actually rather Hillarygate - and he's got some very serious material to support that claim. Via Forbes:

"According to an insider account, the Clinton team, put together the Russia Gate narrative within 24 hours of her defeat. The Clinton account explained that Russian hacking and election meddling caused her unexpected loss. Her opponent, Donald Trump, was a puppet of Putin. Trump, they said, “encourages espionage against our people.” The scurrilous Trump dossier, prepared by a London opposition research firm, Orbis, and paid for by unidentified Democrat donors, formed a key part of the Clinton narrative: Trump’s sexual and business escapades in Russia had made him a hostage of the Kremlin, ready to do its bidding. That was Hillary's way to say that Trump is really not President of the United States—a siren call adopted by the Democratic party and media.

Hillary and the Orbis Dossier

The most under covered story of Russia Gate is the interconnection between the Clinton campaign, an unregistered foreign agent of Russia headquartered in DC (Fusion GPS), and the Christopher Steele Orbis dossier. This connection has raised the question of whether Kremlin prepared the dossier as part of a disinformation campaign to sow chaos in the US political system. If ordered and paid for by Hillary Clinton associates, Russia Gate is turned on its head as collusion between Clinton operatives (not Trump’s) and Russian intelligence. Russia Gate becomes Hillary Gate."


"The Fusion story has been known since Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) sent a heavily-footnoted letter to the Justice Department on March 31, 2017 demanding for his Judiciary Committee all relevant documents on Fusion GPS, the company that managed the Steele dossier against then-candidate Donald Trump. Grassley writes to justify his demand for documents that: “The issue is of particular concern to the Committee given that when Fusion GPS reportedly was acting as an unregistered agent of Russian interests, it appears to have been simultaneously overseeing the creation of the unsubstantiated dossier of allegations of a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians.” (Emphasis added.)

Former FBI director, James Comey, refused to answer questions about Fusion and the Steele dossier in his May 3 testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee. Comey responded to Lindsey Graham’s questions about Fusion GPS’s involvement “in preparing a dossier against Donald Trump that would be interfering in our election by the Russians?” with “I don’t want to say.” Perhaps he will be called on to answer in a forum where he cannot refuse to answer.

The role of Fusion GPS and one of its key associates, a former Soviet intelligence officer, must raise the question as to whether the Steele dossier, which was orchestrated by a suspected unregistered agent of Russia, was a plant by Russian intelligence to harm Donald Trump?"

It's too early yet to posit all this as true, but it could very well be. You might remember Steele - he's the one who came up with the story of the golden shower Russian prostitutes. Fake news before Hillary & Co invented the term.

Fascinating news from the Kingdom of Absurdistan. First the good thing. Via HLN:

"Brussels Central Station was evacuated in a hurry this evening after an explosion. According to the federal prosecutor a terror attack took place. One man was shot by troopers on the scene. According to witnesses the man had caused an explosion with a trolley and shouted 'Allahu Akbar'. According to other witnesses wires could be seen protruding from the man's clothing. Whether there was effectively an explosive belt is not clear yet. Federal authorities state that this was a terror attack. According to police everything is under control."

Here's a still from the Belgian/Flemish private broadcaster VLM (Vlaamse Televisie Maatschappij):

 photo explosion_Brussels_central1_zpszitm6oou.jpg

VTM News reports that around 9pm an explosion took place in Brussels Central. According to Eric Vandersypt, federal prosecutor, this is definitely a terror attack. Vandersypt could not confirm whether the suspect was dead. He only mentioned that soldiers nearby 'neutralized him'. More explosions than one were heard, but at least one of them was a controlled explosion by DOVO/SEDEE, a specialized Belgian Army demining unit. There are no civilian casulaties but the chaos was enormous.

Luckily, just a couple of days ago, lest the Belgian muslim community feel excluded, the Belgian King himself, Philippe I, visited a muslim family in Ghent to participate in an iftar ceremony. Via a Flemish gossip magazine, Story:

 photo belgian_king_fool_zpsfqj2fodm.jpg


King Philippe took a seat at the table of the Benhaddou family in Ghent to share iftar. That is the moment at dusk when a muslim family can break fasting during Ramadan. "This is a lesson for all of us, for society as a whole", said the King. Eating together during iftar means being together and put aside differing opinions, and that's something the King wanted to partipate in for a change. The Benhaddou parents emigrated from Morocco and raised in Ghent six sons and two daughters who all studied. All of them were present to share a meal with Philippe. "Mom and pops have done a fantastic job" the King said admiringly. "I have four, but you have eight, unbelievable. And all of them have magnificent curriculums." Son Khalid is an imam who is fighting radicalization among muslim youths. "The King showing that he wants to meet muslims during ramadan is a very strong signal", he [Khalid, MFBB] said."

King Philippe, never the sharpest knife in the Belgian royalty's drawer, proves here for the umpteenth time that like virtually all the other power players in the upper echelons of Belgian society he has drunk the Kool Aid till all was up and then asked for another fill. After 51 years in this life, and having known Philippe I all this time (at least from the moment I became a sentient subject of the Belgian Monarchy), I have yet to hear the first smart thing coming out of his mouth. It's not that he is evil or decadent, but the man simply has made it a sport to treat Belgians to the grandest collection of senseless bromides - and vent soapy feel good opinions à volonté. Only when international politics are concerned, like e.g. when a Hungarian madman wants to erect borders along Europes soft underbelly or a fake blonde nutjob somewhere in North America is boasting that he will build a Wall or that Farage bloke manages to get enough Brits to vote for a Brexit, does the King's voice assume a more ominous timbre, he forgets for a moment his role as a nice fluffy teddybear, and he has the guts to call aforementioned gentlemen "False Prophets", like he did last year on Belgium's National Holiday, July 21:

 photo filip_valse_profeten_zpsobvlljmq.jpg

King Philip last year, when he warned against "false prophets" who want to exploit "emotions, rupture lines in our societies, and vulnerabilities" and who "point to easy scapaegoats and thus make the chasm between religions, peoples and ultimately all of us, only deeper". Thank Allah the Belgian King acknowledges the Real Prophet, the Perfect Man! Allahu Akbar!

Never mind that the fantastic job that mom and pops Benhaddou have done was greatly facilitated by the fact that eight kids in Belgium means the family received such a TON in child allowances - paid for by filthy infidels, in particular those in the north - that it was absolutely unneccessary that mom went to work also. Nasty people suggest that Ma Benhaddou wasn't allowed to anyway, and that the only green light she ever got was to lie back, open her legs wide, and think of Rabat, but these are just rumors of sour hatey hate types, prolly Jews. Anyway, in addition to that, families with eight kids don't even have to pay income taxes, so that's a bonus en plus. As for all those fantastic diplomas the Benhaddou offspring has collected, the only one mentioned which is deemed interesting enough is Son Khalid's, who got a Masters in Molecular Biology, whooops, sorry, he's an islamic scholar who, wait for it, specializes in "fighting radicalization among muslim youths"! Just what Belgian industry, starving for IT geeks, experts in nanotechnology, and engineers in automation and micromechanics, was waiting for! As you can see the Belgian taxpayer dough supporting them fertile families certainly pays off!

I don't know if I should laugh my ass off or cry my eyes out. I would opt for the latter, but then it's kind of difficult to wire 8,406.46 EUR to Social Security as I did last week.


PS: in the Benhaddou family, there are already six grandchildren. Must be at least some from the lovely Benhaddou daughter sitting to the right of the King. I wonder what diploma she's got. Quantum physicist? Rocket scientist? Bio-engineer? Questions questions questions...


The culture enricher who, it has since been confirmed officially, is now tasting on 72 raisins, was a certain Oussama Z. Brussels escaped another tragedy allright. The pack or packs carried by Oussama were full of nails, bolts. There's talk of gas bottles too. The two light explosions heard first were the faulty detonation mechanism itself, which failed to ignite the real bomb. One more thing: Oussama Z. was from Molenbeek. Who would have thunk it??

There's terribly depressing news all over Europe, what with leftist activists brazenly exploiting the Grenfell Tower tragedy for political gains, the London mayor allowing an al Quds demonstration where Hezbollah flags are openly carried, Macron's party En Marche obtaining an absolute majority in French Parliament (as I have said so often, the French can be safely relied upon to do the wrong thing time and again), the EU moving against Hungary and Poland because they refuse to take in their "refugees" quota, massive fires in Portugal which so far have claimed the lives of 62 people, German police unable to stop the activities of muslim criminal gangs, and in my own country ever more turmoil at the hands of the followers of the prophet. I'll spare you the details of that last topic, but I could fill several posts with it.

So I really needed some good news and there was, there was. Below's a short video about a demo by the "Identitaeren" in Berlin over the weekend:

Western Europe's last hope.
