Archaeology Hell – Another Way The Israeli State Rapes Us

Picture Marlon Brando as the Godfather, Don Vito Corleone. He’s in your backyard threatening you with that calm voice of his. He’s making you an offer you can’t refuse. He’s making you dig your own grave, literally, with a shovel.

Suddenly, you come upon a rare archaeological find as you’re digging. It’s huge. It must be worth a fortune. Well, now you can sell it, pay back your debt to the Godfather, and you’re fine, right?

No, because Vito sees the find and says to you in that same calm voice, “Hey, that’s mine. Now pay me money to dig it out of the ground.”

Now you’re even more in debt and deader than before.

That’s exactly what the State does to people trying to build a house. If they happen to be building on top of an archaeological find, then they by law they have to pay for it to be excavated and handed over to the Israel Antiquities Authority. Or Marlon Brando. What’s the difference.

Normally, an archaeological find belongs to the person who finds it, and that person can sell it and make money. But in Israel if you find one and you’re building a house, you’re totally screwed.

The politicians use the “logic” that if they don’t monopolize antiques then people will just throw them out or use an old mikveh as a Port-A-Potty.

But why not, instead of forcing the person who finds it to pay for the excavation without being able to own any of the capital value, why not just mandate the State, since it has a monopoly on antiques, to buy the site at a value agreed upon by a private appraisal?

Because it’s not about saving archaeological finds. Its about power, greed, injustice.

Only in a Jewish State could finding a priceless Jewish artifact cause the bankruptcy of the Jew who is unlucky enough to find it on his property.

Kim Jong Un for President

Donald Trump or Kim Jong Un, they are both whackjobs with nuclear arsenals. Here’s a novel idea for peace. Trump should fly to North Korea, prostrate himself to Kim Jong Un, and offer him the Presidency. Sure, that’s not constitutional, but neither is anything else Trump has done as Overlord.

Kim Jong Un would be appeased, become president, and nobody in the US would listen to a word he said.

It’s similar to taking the fears of the lefties and righties in Israel to the ultimate extreme. Annex everything and watch the Arabs outvote the Jews and 61 out of 120 MK’s are Arabs and vote to “drive the Jews into the sea”.

So what? Will the Jews say “Well, they have 61 votes, and according to our constitution which doesn’t exist, that means we have to follow everything they say because the State is Holy and We Are All Religious Zionists Now.”

No. Because as much as people believe that nonsense, when it comes to their actual lives, they will throw it out because it is, all, nonsense in the end.

What would really end up happening is that nobody would listen to the Knesset, finally, that would be that.

So Kim Jong Un for president. It would solve all the war tensions and solve a lot of problems with all the Trumpheads following his every command. Nobody would listen to him. He’d be a figurehead and we’d all ignore him.

Disclaimer: I am not a supporter of Kim Jong Un.

 

One Lesson Even I Learned From the Trump Administration About Politicians

Trump’s latest move in Syria, which was basically to attack Assad who is attacking ISIS, and therefore to support ISIS, taught me one thing about politicians I did not even realize.

The one good thing about Trump, at least what I thought was the one good thing, was that he would not start a war with Russia. But apparently, starting a war with Russia is the first major foreign policy move of the Trump administration.

Well, at least I own lots of gold and silver, and some bitcoin. Here’s Dmitri Medvedev, clearly pissed out of his mind.

That’s it. The last remaining election fog has lifted. Instead of an overworked statement about a joint fight against the biggest enemy, ISIS (the Islamic State), the Trump administration proved that it will fiercely fight the legitimate Syrian government, in a tough contradiction with international law and without UN approval, in violation of its own procedures stipulating that the Congress must first be notified of any military operation unrelated to aggression against the US. On the verge of a military clash with Russia.

Nobody is overestimating the value of pre-election promises but there must be limits of decency.

Beyond that is absolute mistrust. Which is really sad for our now completely ruined relations. And which is good news for terrorists.

One more thing. This military action is a clear indication of the US President’s extreme dependency on the opinion of the Washington establishment, the one that the new president strongly criticised in his inauguration speech. Soon after his victory, I noted that everything would depend on how soon Trump’s election promises would be broken by the existing power machine. It took only two and a half months.

Lesson being, even with aspects about a politician in terms of his moves that you may really believe, and have evidence for believing, he’ll always end up doing the wrong thing in the end. I should not have believed that Trump would not start a war with Russia. I was wrong.

Well, the debt clock time bomb on US Treasuries just starting ticking faster. Who knows if we’ll even last the rest of the year.

Chag Sameach!

Why The Neil Gorsuch Nuclear Option Blather Is So Astronomically Important

Here’s your answer in one line.

It’s not important at all, this nuclear option nonsense. It’s all a smokescreen to distract you from upcoming wars Trump will start in Syria following some nonsense story about chemical weapons, and Trump playing chicken with Kim Jong Un.

All hail glorious leader.

I’m talking about Trump of course 😉

Maybe that was two lines. Point is, if you care about the Gorsuch nonsense and you feel any sort of conviction either way, then you have been officially hoodwinked by warmongers who want to drop bombs just a few miles north of me, and rattle the cages of a nuclear-armed North Korea.

But yeah. Gorsuch. Nuclear option. Filibusters. This is all crucial stuff.

Technically, according to the “International Community” whoever the heck they are, I live in southern Syria, so Trump is, politically speaking, about to bomb “my country”. And Kim Jong Un might actually use a nuclear option for real. 

Meanwhile, there’s Gorsuch. And the wussy “nuclear option” of a bunch of whiny cry babies in suits that their guy doesn’t have enough yes votes.

Gorsuch. Nuclear option. Filibusters. That is really important $#!+.

Congratulations Left, You Got Milo Yiannopoulos

Someone was able to find a tape of Milo Yiannopoulos supposedly advocating pedophilia. I’m not a big fan of Milo. He claims to be a libertarian but he is not. He is an entertainer, a meshumad (converted, literally “destroyed”) Jew who does some good by exposing faux-liberal insanities, intentionally triggering people to see how reptilian they are.

This is how the game goes. If you can find some dirt on someone and take it out of context so it sounds bad, while of course everyone knows what the man was actually saying, we can all pretend we don’t and add another layer of fakeness to a ludicrous discussion where everything is already jammed with layers upon layers of meaningless nonsensical outrage.

For context, here’s the gist of what he said. He said that there isn’t a real problem in terms of sexual consent with sex between a minor who is sexually mature and able to make his own decisions, and an older man. What this boils down to in the end is that Milo is saying that the number “18” has no ontological significance in terms of sexual maturity and ability to make decisions on one’s own. One could theoretically achieve this status at, say, 13 or 14, and agree to have sex with an older man.

Is that a very bad idea? Of course. Is it gross and perverted? I would say so, yes. Should parents do everything they can to prevent this from ever happening? Of course. Can it be stopped by force from a libertarian perspective though? Probably not. That’s the essence of it.

Had he said this about an 18 year old, there would be no controversy. The controversy stems from the fact that he’s saying the number 18 has no real significance other than an artificial determination of the “age of consent”. From a libertarian perspective, Milo is correct. 18 has no significance. What is significant is a child’s ability to take care of himself without his parents’ help, to homestead himself in essence, take ownership of himself. Some children can do this at 10. Not many, but some. In Jewish law the minimum age is 6, when a father is no longer halachically obligated to support his child.

If we were to carry through this logic that ended Milo then, all religiously observant Jews who consider the Talmud to be authoritative could be accused of child abuse. But none of us just let our kids roam free at the age of 6 just because Chazal say we theoretically could do that.

So, too, Milo is not “advocating” that 13 year olds have sex with older men. He’s simply saying that if a 13 year old were to take ownership of himself and make such a decision, that society would have no right to prevent this by fiat law that 18 is determined to be the age of consent. His parents maybe would have a right to stop the child, if the child still lives it home and evidence shows that he has not taken ownership of himself even if he claims he has. But in the case where a 13 year old moves out of his parents’ home, he effectively has taken ownership of himself, even though his decisions will probably be quite bad and detrimental compared to those of more mature people.

Obviously, all but the most thoroughly insane – those who actually believe the neopolitical correctness they spew as to be an actual value rather than a publicity stunt to get pageviews and social media clicks – know what Milo was saying. But the world we live in is completely layered in veils of illusion that we all have to pretend are real.

So his book was cancelled, his career is probably over, it looks like he’s going to get fired by the very people who claim not to care about publicly weaved illusions, and the left can now feel all sanctimonious and rub in all of our faces that they “exposed a pedophile” and saved so many young lives while they continue rioting and destroying the property of innocents in protest against people that make them act like 5 year old children.

And western society, both left and right, digs itself deeper into the hole they are mutually digging together.

Israeli Government Admits Its Laws are Stupid, Legalizes all Judea and Samaria Capital (Settlements)

Every so often a government can have an attack of pure sanity and admit to the world and to the people it oppresses that its laws are meaningless and stupid. Every so often the stars align.

The government just passed the חוק ההסדרה, which could colloquially be termed the “Who Gives a Crap About Our Legislative Rantings Law We Were Just Joking Carry On” which basically says that any capital built in Judea and Samaria is now legal even if it was never built legally.

Mashiach is coming.

 

Trump Now says Building Houses for Jews “Impediment to Peace”

Ha ha. It took him what, a week to flip? Those who think this guy is going to move the embassy to Jerusalem are fooling themselves.

Trump met with King Abdullah unannounced and unscheduled, in Washington, and came out with this gem. See if you can spot the contradiction. If you can’t you’re probably sleeping. Says the White House:

“While we don’t believe the existence of settlements is an impediment to peace, the construction of new settlements or the expansion of existing settlements beyond their current borders may not be helpful in achieving that goal,” the White House said in a statement.

Here’s a translation from politician into English:

“While we don’t believe the existence of settlements is an impediment to peace, the existence of settlements is an impediment to peace,” the White House said in a statement.
