Theodore Roo­sevelt: Amer­ica wants Pedi­caris alive, or Raisuli dead!

The Wind and the Lion 1975

This week I took advan­tage of both my Ama­zon no-​rush cred­its and a sud­den 50% drop in the price to pick up the old Errol Flynn Movie “Charge of the Light Brigade: from 1935.

It’s a highly fic­tion­al­ized ver­sion of the his­tor­i­cal event where Flynn’s Char­ac­ter fakes an order to the Com­man­der (Nigel Bruce a few years away from ever­last­ing fame as Wat­son to Basil Rathbone’s Holmes) com­mand­ing the charge to tar­get Surat Kahn an Suris­tani prince with the Rus­sians who ear­lier in the film slaugh­tered the women and chil­dren when tak­ing a British out­post in India. Bruce’s char­ac­ter is delighted and allows Flynn char­ac­ter to give the fol­low­ing speech.

Surat Khan is on the field with the oppos­ing Russ­ian forces. The same Surat Khan who mas­sa­cred the women and chil­dren of Chukoti. Our chance has come! Show no mercy! Let no power on Earth stop you! Prove to the world that no man could kill women and chil­dren and live to boast of it! Men of the Twenty-​seventh. our objec­tive is Surat Khan!

40 Years later another film the Wind and the Lion fic­tion­al­ized another his­tor­i­cal event, the the kid­nap­ping of Ion Perdi­caris turn­ing him into a woman played by Can­dice Bergen, how­ever while the story was fic­tion­al­ized the state­ment which leads the post is only slightly altered from it’s actual form:

This gov­ern­ment wants Perdi­caris alive or Raisuli dead.

And to be sure the days when Amer­i­cans and Brits will­ing to go to war over the kid­nap­ping or the molest­ing of their cit­i­zens and the rest of the world knew it and acted accord­ingly is still in liv­ing mem­ory, but only just.

It was that knowl­edge and will­ing­ness to fight to pro­tect our peo­ple was the rea­son why west­ern­ers in gen­eral and Euro­peans and Amer­i­cans in par­tic­u­lar felt safe almost any­where and why author­i­ties in coun­tries far and wide took pains to make sure that safety was assured. In fact that feel­ing of safety from first the Pax Bri­tan­nica and later the Pax Amer­i­cana com­bined with the wealth that west­ern civ­i­liza­tion cre­ated all thor­ough the west the world­wide indus­try known as tourism, an indus­try that is some parts of the world is the dif­fer­ence between poverty and sub­sis­tence for many.

But we of the west have aban­doned the belief in our reli­gion, our cul­ture and our­selves to such a degree that peo­ple are not only will­ing to slaugh­ter west­ern women with impunity but to make it a point to pro­vide the video of said slaugh­ter directly to the fam­ily and friends of the beheaded women

Good Lord. The exis­tence of the video is bad enough, but to send that bar­bar­ity to the friends of their vic­tim is dou­bly hor­rific. It should dou­ble our resolve to stamp out the insane radical-​Islamist ide­ol­ogy that dri­ves ISIS, a poi­son it hopes to keep spread­ing around the world.

To be sure Louisa Vester­ager Jes­per­son and Maren Ueland are not Amer­i­cans or Bits (they are Dan­ish and Nor­we­gian) and the lat­est reports are that sus­pects have been appre­hended in Morocco but I have to won­der if these young ladies might be alive today if the same fear of the west that once existed still did in that land?

But that’s a silly ques­tion to ask, after all if we aren’t will­ing to pro­tect our own cit­i­zens in our own coun­try from crim­i­nal aliens like Gus­tavo Garcia-​Ruiz

“Before SB 54, Gus­tavo Gar­cia would have been turned over to ICE offi­cials,” Boudreaux said in a state­ment. “That’s how we’ve always done it, day in and day out. After SB 54, we no longer have the power to do that.”

Instead, Gar­cia was released. Just three min­utes after the drive-​by shoot­ing at the orchard on Sun­day, sur­veil­lance cam­era footage cap­tured him wan­der­ing into the AA Gas and Grub mini mart in Exeter, where he fired sev­eral shots at the ceil­ing and told the cashier to give him $2,000 in cash.
Later that night, he report­edly shot at a woman sit­ting in her car in the park­ing lot of a Motel 6 in Tulare and sent a vol­ley of bul­lets fly­ing into a Shell gas sta­tion in nearby Pix­ley before shoot­ing and killing a man who was stand­ing out­side a gas sta­tion in Visalia. At around 3 a.m. on Mon­day morn­ing, Visalia police got another call: Gar­cia was stand­ing in his ex-girlfriend’s back­yard, yelling threats at her as he shot at her house.

and in fact proudly pass laws to pro­tect such men from being detained, why would any­one fear the west’s reach out­side it’s bor­ders? As Robert Spencer notes in is piece about the death of a 76 year old Sarah Ann Wind­holm from injuries sus­tained in an attack in Canada.

The mys­tery sur­round­ing Habibul­lah Ahmadi, the per­pe­tra­tor of this bar­baric mur­der, is astound­ing. Given the bru­tal­ity and ran­dom nature of his attack, it is note­wor­thy that so lit­tle has been reported about him. Infor­ma­tion about his back­ground and even police pho­tos of Ahmadi are vir­tu­ally unat­tain­able. It is as though author­i­ties were being pro­tec­tive of him, more so than they have been of the victim

Sarah Ann Wind­holm, Louisa Vester­ager Jes­per­son, Maren Ueland and Rocky Jones are all fatal­i­ties in a cul­ture war that the west has cho­sen not to fight. Until we choose a dif­fer­ent path they will not be the last.

Clos­ing thought, can you imag­ine a Teddy Roo­sevelt or even a Harry Tru­man putting up with this kind of thing?


Theodore Roosevelt: America wants Pedicaris alive, or Raisuli dead!

The Wind and the Lion 1975

This week I took advantage of both my Amazon no-rush credits and a sudden 50% drop in the price to pick up the old Errol Flynn Movie “Charge of the Light Brigade: from 1935.

It’s a highly fictionalized version of the historical event where Flynn’s Character fakes an order to the Commander (Nigel Bruce a few years away from everlasting fame as Watson to Basil Rathbone’s Holmes) commanding the charge to target Surat Kahn an Suristani prince with the Russians who earlier in the film slaughtered the women and children when taking a British outpost in India. Bruce’s character is delighted and allows Flynn character to give the following speech.


Surat Khan is on the field with the opposing Russian forces. The same Surat Khan who massacred the women and children of Chukoti. Our chance has come! Show no mercy! Let no power on Earth stop you! Prove to the world that no man could kill women and children and live to boast of it! Men of the Twenty-seventh. our objective is Surat Khan!

40 Years later another film the Wind and the Lion fictionalized another historical event, the the kidnapping of Ion Perdicaris turning him into a woman played by Candice Bergen, however while the story was fictionalized the statement which leads the post is only slightly altered from it’s actual form:

This government wants Perdicaris alive or Raisuli dead.

And to be sure the days when Americans and Brits willing to go to war over the kidnapping or the molesting of their citizens and the rest of the world knew it and acted accordingly is still in living memory, but only just.

It was that knowledge and willingness to fight to protect our people was the reason why westerners in general and Europeans and Americans in particular felt safe almost anywhere and why authorities in countries far and wide took pains to make sure that safety was assured. In fact that feeling of safety from first the Pax Britannica and later the Pax Americana combined with the wealth that western civilization created all thorough the west the worldwide industry known as tourism, an industry that is some parts of the world is the difference between poverty and subsistence for many.

But we of the west have abandoned the belief in our religion, our culture and ourselves to such a degree that people are not only willing to slaughter western women with impunity but to make it a point to provide the video of said slaughter directly to the family and friends of the beheaded women


Good Lord. The existence of the video is bad enough, but to send that barbarity to the friends of their victim is doubly horrific. It should double our resolve to stamp out the insane radical-Islamist ideology that drives ISIS, a poison it hopes to keep spreading around the world.

To be sure Louisa Vesterager Jesperson and Maren Ueland are not Americans or Bits (they are Danish and Norwegian) and the latest reports are that suspects have been apprehended in Morocco but I have to wonder if these young ladies might be alive today if the same fear of the west that once existed still did in that land?

But that’s a silly question to ask, after all if we aren’t willing to protect our own citizens in our own country from criminal aliens like Gustavo Garcia-Ruiz


“Before SB 54, Gustavo Garcia would have been turned over to ICE officials,” Boudreaux said in a statement. “That’s how we’ve always done it, day in and day out. After SB 54, we no longer have the power to do that.”

Instead, Garcia was released. Just three minutes after the drive-by shooting at the orchard on Sunday, surveillance camera footage captured him wandering into the AA Gas and Grub mini mart in Exeter, where he fired several shots at the ceiling and told the cashier to give him $2,000 in cash.
Later that night, he reportedly shot at a woman sitting in her car in the parking lot of a Motel 6 in Tulare and sent a volley of bullets flying into a Shell gas station in nearby Pixley before shooting and killing a man who was standing outside a gas station in Visalia. At around 3 a.m. on Monday morning, Visalia police got another call: Garcia was standing in his ex-girlfriend’s backyard, yelling threats at her as he shot at her house.

and in fact proudly pass laws to protect such men from being detained, why would anyone fear the west’s reach outside it’s borders? As Robert Spencer notes in is piece about the death of a 76 year old Sarah Ann Windholm from injuries sustained in an attack in Canada.


The mystery surrounding Habibullah Ahmadi, the perpetrator of this barbaric murder, is astounding. Given the brutality and random nature of his attack, it is noteworthy that so little has been  reported about him. Information about his background and even police photos of Ahmadi are virtually unattainable. It is as though authorities were being protective of him, more so than they have been of the victim

Sarah Ann Windholm, Louisa Vesterager Jesperson, Maren Ueland and Rocky Jones are all fatalities in a culture war that the west has chosen not to fight. Until we choose a different path they will not be the last.

Closing thought, can you imagine a Teddy Roosevelt or even a Harry Truman putting up with this kind of thing?
