Exploiting weakness

Just watching Natural World about the secrets of Nature’s arms races.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b08n9f6d/natural-world-20172018-3-natures-wildest-weapons-horns-tusks-and-antlers and it shows how smaller males can circumvent the strong males and mate with the female by using sneaky tactics. That is with dung beetles as with cattlefish. Small cattlefish, pretend to be female, go around the strong male and mate with the female anyhow.

Small dungbeetles ignore the strong male on top of the chamber, dig down beside the chamber and dig a tunnel across and whilst the strong male sits on top, the sneaky small, weak male mates with the female.

Reminds me of the tactics that ‘Extinction Rebellion’ use to justify their desire to teach young people in resistance tactics. XR even managed to get a big grant from Big Lottery to do it.

XR simply used the same terminology that Neighbourhood Watch now uses, which is improve the wellbeing of local communities.

Whilst Neighbourhood Watch wants to improve the wellbeing by introducing lawful behaviour to reduce anti-social behaviour and reduce the crime rate, XR wants to improve wellbeing by teaching people passive resistance tactics and long-term hate of the current establishment to reduce global warming, they teach their followers to stage large demos.

Yet XR managed to dupe the Big Lottery into giving them money, which is amazing as they are quite rich already.

secret lies – not in the public interest

The Shamima Begum case opens old wounds for me. It has to do with lying. Apparently the parents of Shamima Begum had stated, so I believe, that they did not know that their daughter had planned and/or went to Syria to join Islamic State.

I want to know how it is possible to brainwash a child so perfectly that they won’t tell their nearest and dearest family about it.

I went through a very similar experience with my severely learning disabled daughter who kept it a perfect secret for years that she had sexual relations with a number of local Asian men who apparently had raped her.

She would not tell me about it for many years, apparently she had been convinced that she could not betray her friends, those Asian men.

As soon as I found out about the facts I went to police to report the matter. But then, the Crown Prosecution Service said that it would not be in the public interest to prosecute the case, against the protestation of the local Police Officers who wanted the prosecution to go ahead.

Apparently then later, the police didn’t mind prosecuting such cases outside of Tower Hamlets, but thy swept the problems in Tower Hamlets under the carpet.

The prosecution would have found out how it was possible that a girl could be convinced to keep something so terrible an almost perfect secret for years.

I believe similar techniques are used to groom youngsters online to join terrorist organisations.

Though I do not believe that the men who raped my daughter had something to do with terrorism, but they certainly used grooming techniques, which were totally subversive.

It should be in the national interest to prosecute Shamima Begum to find out what grooming techniques were used to get her to throw away her future for such terrible deeds.

Though in my daughter’s case it was merely sexual exploitation on a local Tower Hamlets level, in Shamima Begum’s case it involved terrible terrorist and international contexts, which have completely gone out of hand.

Therefore on second thoughts it’s slightly suspicious to me why the government wants to prevent a trial of Shamima Begum in Britain as a trial will reveal the intelligence behind the problem. The intelligence services could have found out about grooming techniques had they looked further into the case of my learning disabled daughter who fell victim of such groomers as long as 20 years ago, when the CPS made their best effort to ignore the problem.

I don’t think that Shamima Begum should be entitled to British Citizenship but a trial could produce definite legal presedence for the many ex-British terrorists who joined Islamic State at the time and they must be shown that they no longer have a right to return here and that law has to stand up to future scrutiny as well.

No wonder pupil numbers drop

Raising a child in Tower Hamlets has become just that little bit more difficult now, with Shamima Begum and her other friends being raised in our immediate neighbourhood, I cannot help wondering what her return to Britain will bring. Her family must be from Tower Hamlets or she would not have gone to a Secondary in Old Bethnal Green Road.

It’s really bad if not just one but three mainstream pupils from a council run Secondary school leave the country to join a terrorist organisation.

But, this reflects the demographic in this borough. And now, Tower Hamlets Council is very busy closing schools because of falling pupil numbers.

I won’t send my child to a Sixth form in Tower Hamlets either. As far as I understand Sixth Forms in Tower Hamlets fail to attract the high number of brightest pupils they need to expand.

I shall send my child rather to Hackney than educate in Tower Hamlets.

Because of the pupil mix Tower Hamlets now even reduces sports education sharply. It’s a very sad state of affairs.

I am constantly writing to my Member of parliament because of many maintenance issues.

Just looking at the former Chest Hospital. Every time I walk past I need to look at the constantly decaying buildings within and nothing gets done at all. It would be better to develop the site. I definitely prefer shiny new buildings instead of crumbling bricks to look at.

 

distorting facts

whilst some Christmas advertisements promote sending gifts to remote pensioner parents or grand-parents, it is more likely that those parents and/or grandparents are expected to send gifts to the remotely living grandchildren they never see.

Online platforms enable pictorial representation of the sweet little things that then translates into buying gifts for birthdays, Christmas, graduation etc.

Yet, distant relationships become estranged and any parent or grandparents can get a real shock when they are suddenly confronted with the actual ideology their children have.

Once a parent always a parent is no longer valid. Once we stop receiving child-benefit forthose little ones, they become legal entities in their own right and we no longer need to care.

They have moved out, make their own friends and no longer ask for approval. They do no longer need to ask for approval, as we do not have those large family homes that house generations.

We have small dwellings that house 1,2 or 3 at most. Always on the go.

Whilst parental instincts dictate the caring attitude and the: “I must safe him/her from harm and promote their prospoerity”, the kids themselves often couldn’t care less.

They are far away and use platforms like Facebook or Instagram to post those heart-melting photos that make you save up your pension for the next celebrationary gift.

They often know what you want to hear and say little else.

But if you hear something that is concerning, unlawful or outright dangerous, please do not hesitate to report them to the proper authorities and keep yourself and others safe.

Graduation gifts are reasonably good as they reward achievement and that is what parents and grandparents really should concentrate on.

 

Keeping it safe – the in-betweeners

It doesn’t matter whether its

  • Neo-nazis
  • Daesh
  • Extinction Rebellion
  • Left-wing rebels
  • Religious fanatics

They all have one thing in common. They want to destroy the current orderly organisation of society and after the breaking down of law and order implement their ideas of right and wrong.

If it wasn’t for the current furlough scheme, they would be a very big step ahead of their goals.

Whilst I keep going on about family and relationships it becomes more and more clear that in many instances, in our current modern society, ordinary working people spend less time living at the same place, working for the same employer, spending time with their family.

The average school kid these days spends around 8 hours per day in school and around 2 hours of that are used for communiting to and from school Then there are clubs and/or home work.

Whilst a parent or parents spend in excess of 8 hours working, commuting.

Very little time is actually spend together in the family unit. Kids use Apps, time online, TV watching, gaming, streaming, pod casts to entertain and form relationships away from the person to person communications among their nearest and dearest.

Extremists exploit those facts and recruit anybody who is slightly attracted to them by remote means.

The constant need to find accommodation, employment and fighting off debt collectors make building relationships very difficult indeed for a working person. And there is literally no means to actually check for truth beyond what a relative presents as truth. Remember the parents who got convictedof supporting their son’s time with Daesh, when he told them he went on a humanitarian holiday?

Long gone are the days of secure long-term tenancies in council flats, the job for life at the state owned service or local factory.

Yet the people who keep our economy going rely on short-term contracts, zero working hours to make their operatoin profitable and operational.

Whilst any abnormal event like for instance Covid-19 leads to the closing down of schools, which form the main social contact for children, the online world that recruits extremists keeps on going and never sleeps.

People now make it a habit ot organise some sort of demonstration, just to socialise with others, it has become a way of life.

Whilst law enforcement agencies are seriously behind keeping up with covert organisatoins recruting and training the new radicals, I cannot see modern governments actually being able to halt the discontent.

The old-fashioned ideas of family, religion, have been replaced with modern legislation, which no longer puts morals or god at the forefront of their thinking.

There is no family unit that can catch up ideological uncertainties, no school that is always available and doesn’t expel delinquents, no church that actually translates old ideology into modern terms.

We are all in-betweeners. Trying to make sense of the morality of our bibles in comparison to modern laws and trying to find solace in our family units, which hardly have the time to have a meal together.

 

Ofcom to regulate harmful content

How could I ever forget that I spent 3 years as a litigant in person at the High Court in London – and part of it in relation to an infringement of my publication rights also at the commercial court-.

The whole aim of my efforts was to help reduce harmful content and to keep publishers to sensible limits on how to report things to do especially with terrorism.

Remember at the time a Labour Party member put pictures of the blazing machine gun logo of Baader-Meinhof on a website to report about ancient history.

It should be made illegal to use the logos of outlawed terrorist organisations to report about something, just as it is illegal to use certain Nazi salutes and phrases.

Using the logo of a terrorist organisation to report about something actually brings the organisation back to life and promotes that organisation. I fought against that, and though I lost, I now feel that the government has finally woken up to the manner of publication as well as to the content.

Actually I think libel laws are not fit for purpose as they allow the use of harmful pictorial material without making it illegal to do so. That is why I formally lost my case but now the purpose I pursued is finally winning.

Ofcom will now be given power to regulate harmful content. Hopefully they will also realise that school children and local communities are sometimes receptive to the promotion of unlaw aims by the use of pictures and logos that are associated with terrorists.

Determining human evolution

New viruses like the one in China, currently threatening humanity, can be man-made and used as a terrorist tool. I got this idea from the Trump book, I’m currently reading when I’m waiting in doctors’ wating rooms for my appointments.

Terrorism is not depndant on the size of the country or their resources it depends on their ability to innovate.

Threats like viruses are the hardest to detect, prevent, determine and stop.

But then humanity right now channels human evolutions into the have’s and have-nots and those able to afford medical treatments get the chance to carry their human genes into the next generation, whilst the poor bastards are left to die.

That is what the current system implies in brash terms.

Governments have to invest in general happiness and not in productivity. Where democratic processes are prevented either through outright repression or monetary pressures, the danger of niche terrorism becomes louder.

 

 

Lost home movies of the Nazi era

Just watched these 2 episodes and it was absolutely gruesome. People being beaten to death in the street and shootings of Jewish people being photographed and photos developed in the country, shows that it was known what was happening to many.

Having grown up in Germany, being born in 1952 I grew up with very little information. My parents never talked about the war. My father being drawn in, just before it ended and being deployed to Norway and my mother being a nurse, that is all I ever found out.

I don’t think I could ever connect to my home country Germany because I missed so much of its history in the sense that if people never talk about it, you cannot understand what went on in people’s minds and how they want to get over the horrors.

Not even in school, in history lessons did the teachers talk much about the World War II period. It was always conveniently not mentioned.

Heinz-family

Family member of Heinz Kaschke, presumably from the Berlin area.

My family from my mother’s side having been farmers in the most remote corner of Germany were not very connected to the events in the country. My father was from Berlin and I never met any of his family. I have a picture and if anyone recognise the people on it, please contact me. My father left me a Jewish book after his death and it is called a Jewish book in his possessions and I have been informed it is a Yeshayahu Vinograds. I am not aware that he had any religion and do not know how it came into his possession. If anybody has any information about this please let me know. The book is very old.

Heinz-soldier

Heinz Kaschke (1945?)

I have been told that the Jewish Museum of Berlin is interested in the book but would first like to know how it came into my father’s possession. I show a pic of my father here as he looked during the war: He was stationed in Norway, with the heavy water production.

The silence at home was always deafening. It is not normal that people just do not speak about an era in their lives. It must have been very important for my parents that they met and married during the war. But all my mother ever said is that she had to marry in black silk as this was all she could find.

I only wondered, when I got housed in London’s East End why neighbours’s children mocked us with ‘Heil Hitler’ calls out in the street and my kids got beaten up regularly outside.

I was born in 1952 and had no idea what even went on, and the films I saw today are unforgiveable in content because they show that killings took place in the streets in mass-lynchings of Jewish people. That it was just not concealed killings in Concentration Camps.

From what I knew before I found it amazing that a Jewish lady I had a converstaion with told me that her parents sent her back to Germany after the war and I thought that must have been very difficult to live in a country were friends and family had been killed by mobs.

I am really surprised that Germany was even allowed to continue to exist as a nation after that war, they should have lost the right to be a nation. 

I could never really connect to the nation, even though I grew up there and when I went to visit a few years ago, it felt like a strange place, even my home-town Wuerzburg just looked like a living musuem because I never gotten to get to know people from the bottom of their hearts. I just felt miss-treated there as a young person and left.

I had worked in a book-shop and was one of two people with physical ‘irregularities’ and we both got dismissed from the role in our apprenticeships. Probably the pure race requirements weren’t met by me and my colleague, we were both seen as not fit to work in a bookshop. Obviously they wanted the perfect people and have not learned much from their past.

It is the point

Just been warned by Facebook because I used an emotional word in reaction of the newsthat a plane crashed in Iran with the deaths of 176 and 3 Britons amongst those victims. I made a comment that obviously crashed out because Facebook seems to have a filter, which automatically prevents some words from being published.

I have been warned that if I ever use another word that is not acceptable by their filters my account may be restricted. I accepted that decision. Politeness is important but that politeness is the demise of Jeremy Corbyn. I am quoting Yahoo News here who published the following comment of J Corbyn: ““Soleimani is the head of special forces of Iran. They obviously operate in all kids of places that you or I would not agree with or want. That is not the point.”

Unfortnately for Mr Corbyn it is the point. The operations of any military force against whoever is the point.

The same article also states that Corbyn was paid by Iran to appear on their state TV.

It seems that Jeremy Corbyn’s naivity is beyond comprehension. He seems to argue like a school-child making points that bullying is always wrong and that heads of state should never bully another.

I think he doesn’t understand the concepts of political violence or not even the concept of indidvidual terrorist violence and how states or their employees can be involved in all of that. Whilst Jeremy Corbyn has criticised the Iranian record on Human Rights, that is not a free pass for all that happened or for his defence of that regime to be acceptable.

Whilst it is a commendable strategy by a publisher like Facebook to wipe out hate speech by using filters against certain words, it makes it a much longer process to proof nuisance politicans are actually useless because of their continued use of elaborate wordings makes it harder to proof the point.

I don’t even understand why Crobyn sees himself as judge and jury of recent American military actions.

 

Magnificent seven

Watched this film recenlty and the scenario in Mexico, where the crime lords attack the farmers for their crops, to feed those gang members, and then the cowboys fighting the attacking marauding gangs to obliterate them and secure the freedom of the village farmers and their families made me think.

Not so different those Mexican gangs with today’s Taleban. If Cowboys, like the Magnificent Seven hadn’t fought those crime gangs, we would today have a similar society to those of the Taleban.

Repression of civilians by crime gangs who extort local farmers for the purpose of controlling regions, driving locals into slavery and forcing women into slavery of gangs is the result of serving the criminal gangs.

The ultimate result is sexual expoitation of girls from the age of 9 and no freedom of choice to develop a civilisation.

Repressive societies do still exist and the atrocities being carried out there are ongoing.

The freedom of any culture needs to be preserved and for us, who are cultivated to accept freedom of expression and from slavery, we are constantly fighting off attempts to impinge on our freedoms.

Jeremy Corbyn is far removed from reality when he writes this letter asking whether the US informed the UK in advance about the neutralisation of Qasem Soleimani. It is something a child would do as part of a history exam.

The Labour Party needs to make a clear choice of cultural affiliation to get any serious following in this country.

Unfortunately an economic strategy must be aligend to a clear cultural affiliation but it seems that with Labour everything is mixed up and confusing. That will not win any elections.
