    Turkey’s state broadcaster has stopped showing cowboy films, which the channel has aired on Sundays since the 1980s. The decision was taken in response to the current crisis between the United States and Turkey, which has seen the United States demand the release of citizens held in Turkey, the imposition of sanctions on two Turkish ministers and added tariffs on metal imports from Turkey. Turkey has responded with largely reciprocal measures. In place of Westerns, TRT announced that it plans to broadcast Turkish movies. News of the decision elicited numerous reactions on social media. Yüksel Aytuğ, a journalist working for...

    Canadian classical pianist Glenn Gould had a piano partially converted to a harpsichord, piano hammers removed, replaced with posts & quills. The harsh sound was described as "2 Skeletons Copulating on a Corrugated Tin Roof". An apt word cartoon to symbolize the motivation of end-stage Western civilization. Doing It with anything, everything, all the time, is not sex, which makes babies, creates the new world, unites couples and weaves the seamless fabric of the next society after this one winds down its inglorious suicide. Catholic sex tracker Mary Eberstadt considers it a new religion. She doesn't call it, its proper...

    My life didnt change when I saw the duelling banjos scene in Deliverance, but it was the first time I realised there was more to country music than the Benny Hill theme tuney name is Martin and I love country music. There you go, Ive said it. Its not always an easy thing to do. When the subject comes up, I get a funny sort of look. Once you spring the c-word on people, you can see theyre thinking: [darn], this blokes weird. Does he dress up like a cowboy at home and do those funny dances? Sometimes people like...
  • Why Netflixs Godless is the Western youve been waiting for

    Los Angeles Daily News ^ | November 17, 2017 | Rob Lowman
    ...For Godless, executive producers Casey Silver and Steven Soderbergh took Scott Franks screenplay, which was originally written as a film, and expanded it into a seven-part limited series for Netflix. The series is a wild ride, an old-fashioned Western with a contemporary edge. It carries the sweep and breadth of a grand tale with the larger-than-life ornery characters you expect to find living and dying in that rugged, lonely land... The entire series which plays like a seven-hour movie was directed by Scott Frank from his screenplay. He keeps the tension throughout without over-hyping scenes. Death is bad...

  • In Grand Warsaw Speech, Trump Vows To Lead "Fight For The West"

    In Warsaw today (7:15 a.m. ET), President Trump delivers what the White House sees as one of the most important speeches of his presidency. He won't identify himself with the nationalist populist ruling party in Poland, but has something grander in mind. The president will present himself as the leader of the West during an address to thousands of Poles in a public square. Trump's team, led by senior policy adviser Stephen Miller, saw an opportunity to use the story of the Polish resistance as the setting for a new rallying cry to Western civilization. From Trump's text: "The fundamental...

    US President Donald Trump is to argue that the future of Western civilisation is at stake in a keynote speech in the Polish capital Warsaw. Holding up Poland as an example of a country ready to defend civilisation, he will warn against the threats of "terrorism and extremism". Poland's conservative government shares Mr Trump's hostile view of immigration and strong sense of sovereignty. Mr Trump is in Poland ahead of a G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany. "Because as the Polish experience reminds us - the defence of the West ultimately rests not only on means but also on the will...

The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God. For the needy shall not always be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever. Arise, O Lord; let not man prevail: let the heathen be judged in thy sight. Put them in fear, O Lord: that the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah. (Psalm 9:16-20)The Nations are extremely important in Gods economy and priorities for mankind....

    How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! ( Isaiah 14:12) One hundred years ago the continent of Europe was in the midst of a convulsive, suicidal war against itself, which would ultimately bring in America, South Africa, Australians and New Zealanders, and many other nations which were in any way connected to Europe, such as through colonial ties. In the years leading up to the war, the West was at a zenith of power, wealth and civilizational confidence.The once feared Ottoman empire...

  • Quentin Tarantino's 'The Hateful Eight' is the best, most thoughtful Western movie in ages

    12/22/2015 6:19:17 PM PST · by Perdogg · 109 replies
    Early on in “The Hateful Eight,” John Ruth (Kurt Russell) keeps repeating the line “slow like molasses.” Later on, another character informs his gang that their mission is going to take patience. This describes “The Hateful Eight” well, too: It deserves your patience. “The Hateful Eight,” the latest film by Quentin Tarantino, shows the very odd path that one of the greatest living filmmakers has decided to take. While many directors start out conventional and then experiment once they have clout, Tarantino has abandoned much of the nonlinear storytelling on which he made his name (with "Reservoir Dogs" and "Pulp...

    Western countries do not identify themselves with the Christian tradition and harass those who defend Christian values, said Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia Kirill on Wednesday at a meeting with US preacher Franklin Graham at the St. Daniel Monastery. "Russian Church during the Cold War was actively developing relations with Western Christians. We were living in difficult conditions of atheistic ideology and perceived Western civilization as Christian civilization. We appreciated the freedom in which they lived, Christians in the West, and considered them our brothers and allies" - said the Patriarch. He stressed with regret that in recent years...

    One of the primary reasons Islamic and Western nations are"worlds apart"is because the way they understand the world is worlds apart. Whereas Muslims see the world through the lens of history, the West has jettisoned or rewritten history to suit it's ideologies. This dichotomy of Muslim and Western thinking is evident everywhere. When the Islamic State declared that it will "conquer Rome" and "break it's crosses," few in the West realized that those are the verbatim words and goals of Islam's founder and his companions as recorded in Muslim sources --words and goals that prompted over a thousand years of...
