Astonishing Statement from Glen Jenvey

Self-styled anti-terrorism expert and British Obsession pundit Glen Jenvey has just released an extraordinary statement, in which he appears in effect to repudiate the “anti-Jihadi” efforts by which he came to public attention. It is published on Cryptome, and has also been sent to me from his email address. In particular, Jenvey claims to have provided evidence crucial to the extradition of jailed Muslim extremist […]

C. Peter Wagner on the Japanese Emperor and the Succubus

Bruce Wilson digs out a video of neo-Pentecostal “spiritual warfare” theorist C. Peter Wagner talking about Japan in the early 1990s, and why the Sun Goddess Amaterasu is the “harlot” from the Book of Revelation: Japan, as a nation, is one of the nations of the world which has consciously, openly, invited national demonization.  And they […]

Joseph Farah Urinates On Holocaust Memory: Accuses Obama of Announcing Continuation of Nazi Genocide

OK, it’s an easy target. We all know that Joseph Farah is a man without integrity or decency, a desperate huckster who proclaims to be a Christian while churning out the most egregious lies on his pseudo-news site WorldNetDaily. His crude bias and bad faith are of course long-standing and perennial; but in recent weeks – perhaps in competition […]

Two Book Reviews

Somewhat late to the party, I’ve written a review of Jeff Sharlet‘s 2008 book The Family – it can be seen here. And rather quicker off the mark, I’ve got a review of Kathryn Joyce‘s new book Quiverfull,  here. Kathryn was also recently on TV talking about her book with Laura Flanders – see here.

Michael Savage, speaking on BBC Radio 5 on June 02: I’ve supported the five major religions for the last fifteen years on the radio.

Sunday Times Article on Luton Tensions

The Sunday Times has an article recent events in Luton (blogged by me numerous times),  including the revelation that the town’s Sikh mayor was assaulted in March by a white youth as a protest against Islamic extremism: Kier [McElroy] ran up to him and fly-kicked him in the back.

The End of the World Explains Tall Buildings

When I was a child, one of those bits of general knowledge that it was felt important for us all to know was this: “The Empire State Building in New York is the tallest building in the world”. It wasn’t – but our schoolbooks were a few years out of date, adults repeated stuff they […]

Price of Free Speech in the UK: £50,000

From the Sunday Times: Global Witness, an environmental and human rights pressure group, faced legal action in London from Denis Christel Sassou Nguesso, son of the president of Congo-Brazzaville.

Paranoia and Extremist Violence in the USA

Kyle at Right-Wing Watch has an excellent post: Back in April and May I wrote a whole series of posts about how the Right was systematically trumping-up a controversy over the Department of Homeland Security Report, “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment” [PDF,]” which eventually led the DHS to […]
