Our Puerile, Self-Righteous and Judgmental New World
by R.P. BenDedek
May 20, 2018

In one recent survey, 10 percent of students said it is appropriate to use violence to stop a speaker sometimes, while 37 percent said speaker shout-downs are sometimes acceptable. That’s frightening. Until both of those numbers are at zero percent, it’s obviously we have our work cut out for us. How is it possible for a person whose fight is for ‘justice’ to treat others unjustly? How is it possible for a person who claims that their free speech is a right enshrined in the constitution, to not recognize that other people have that same right? Such people are quite puerile!

The Hypocrisy behind Media Anti-China Campaign
by R.P. BenDedek
May 3, 2018

God forbid that we in democracy loving English language FREE countries should forbid entrance to any publication, statements, propaganda or persons of which and whom we as a nation disapprove. We promote freedom and freedom of speech and belief – except that is in relation to – oh – let’s say ‘gay marriage or Israel declaring sovereignty over Samaria and Judea, or female circumcision, or polygamy or Trump Supporters………….’ then we want to beat the speaker to death, lock them away, destroy their business or cause them to lose their jobs. We expect Communist countries to behave this way, but how do we excuse ourselves for behaving this way?

Looking at the News April 30, 2018 The Flood of Tribalism
by R.P. BenDedek
April 30, 2018

Differing political agendas are often found to be at loggerheads with each other, but from the perspective of tribalism, no middle ground or compromise can be allowed for that would defeat the tribal narrative and destroy the power of the tribe. Tribalism is therefore ultimately destructive within a society that holds to the democratic principles of freedom of speech and belief…. We live in a technological world with massive propaganda potential, a fact demonstrated by the fabricated Trump-Russia collusion drama. We are subjected daily to mind and emotion altering propaganda, mainly for the sake of increasing someone’s personal wealth and/or power. Attempts to discuss publically some of the propaganda immediately gives rise to Tribal responses and attacks.

Looking at the NEWS April 24, 2018 Dunning-Kruger
by R.P. BenDedek
April 24, 2018

The Dunning Kruger effect is a cognitive bias in which individuals, who are unskilled at a particular task, believe themselves to possess above-average ability in performing the task. On the other hand, as individuals become more skilled in a particular task, they may mistakenly believe that they possess below-average ability in performing those tasks because they may assume that all others possess equal or greater ability.

Looking at the NEWS April 18, 2018: Myths & Perspectives
by R.P. BenDedek
April 18, 2018

Every year in the USA cops shoot people. The same people who want to void the 2nd Amendment – and the First Amendment as well – are the same people who claim that Police are the problem and they will tell you just how many people (all of which must certainly be black folk killed by white folk) are shot to death every year. What they won’t tell you is something that is revealed in the most recent PragerU video which says that while 990 people were shot by police in 2014, a John Hopkins study revealed that a quarter of a million people died that year from medical errors. It kind of puts things into perspective doesn’t it?

Looking at the NEWS April 11, 2018 A Different Look
by R.P. BenDedek
April 11, 2018

Peter Hartcher of the Sydney Morning Herald (Australia) on April 9th 2018 published an article titled “The woman China wants you to ignore.” Reading this article it is very easy to get riled up about China, and your anger would be justified, BUT, I don’t want you to look at China’s actions, I want you to see that the same reprehensible totalitarianism exists in politically correct, progressive-liberal western society.

Looking at the NEWS April 6, 2018 Just Asking Questions
by R.P. BenDedek
April 6, 2018

This world is losing its way through the insanity of leftist / progressive ideological idolatry. Unless people begin to start asking questions and researching to obtain demonstrable evidence, and until they test their theories through processes of falsification to ensure that their theories hold water, then society as a whole will become factionalized and collapse. People worry about trade wars with China and Nuclear War with Russia and North Korea, but if our democratic societies collapse under the weight of self-interested ideological factions, there will be no war with foreign countries because we will be inviting those armies to come and restore law and order in our streets.

Looking at the NEWS March 30, 2018: ‘Special Privilege’
by R.P. BenDedek
March 30, 2018

The ‘White Privilege’ cry of modern day leftist is a false cry which denies the reality that there are millions of white people who grow up socially and economically disadvantaged who never had their dreams fulfilled. And it is equally true that many overcame their adversities and made a success of their lives. Despite all the Leftist BS, the term Palestinian is not synonymous with ‘saint’; Muslim is not synonymous with ‘victim’; Black is not synonymous with ‘oppressed’; Guns are not synonymous with ‘murder’; and “White” is not synonymous with ‘Privileged.’

Movie Review: The Red Sparrow Surprise
by R.P. BenDedek
March 29, 2018

The twists and turns in the plot were many and that scene at the end of the movie which stitched all of those twists and turns into the tapestry of the story reminded me of the way that the Doctor Who series always ends up connecting all those individual but insignificant episodes to reveal the grand design… If it came down to point scoring, the Russians would have definitely won the ‘Who are the most dedicated citizens’ contest; this demonstrated by the two Russians who gave up their freedom for the future greater glory of Mother Russia.

The BS Behind the Christian’s Easter
by R.P. BenDedek
March 28, 2018

It doesn’t matter what the Bible says about the grace of God through the faith of Christ being freely given to all us wayward sinners, the reality is that Salvation is by Theology – not the Grace of God. If you have the wrong theology or religious practices you are simply disqualified from Salvation. And let’s face it, so many people have spent so much time ensuring that they have theology down pat, that they absolutely DO DESERVE their Salvation.

Looking at the NEWS March 23, 2018 The Flipside
by R.P. BenDedek
March 23, 2018

It is precisely because mainstream media hates President Trump that we should take the time to research issues that they raise for as so often happens, what they first report consists of nothing more than click bait and thereafter the truth, which is incrementally provided, is well hidden behind trigger words meant to enslave the Dumb and Dumber masses.

Looking at the NEWS March 16, 2018 Society’s Emotional Imbalance
by R.P. BenDedek
March 16, 2018

If you undermine the false foundation upon which they have built their lives, you have effectively tied a chain of weights around their waist and dropped them into the ocean to drown. Their fight is therefore not for ideological supremacy, but emotional survival. The real question is not how to convince them that they are wrong, but how their inner person came to be so weak, insecure and afraid. Given the extent to which people are affected in this way today, we must assume that the answer is to be found in our social culture – and perhaps, just perhaps, you might find the answer in the right hand column of this page about current (1963) Communist goals.

Nonsensical Biblical Chronology Part 2: Solomon to Jehu
by R.P. BenDedek
March 15, 2018

The big problem is to be found in the 2nd year of King Jehoram of ISRAEL (the right side of the chart). According to the experts, King Ahab was involved in the Battle of Qarqar that year. And therein lies the rub. The Battle took place in the Spring of 853 BC and the first of spring 853 BC (if we are following the normal practice) is the commencement of the first regnal year of Ahab’s son King Jehoram who was slain in 842/841 BC. To get Ahab ruling in 853 BC and his son Jehoram being killed in 842 BC requires time compression. This one little problem takes up a whole chapter of ‘The King’s Calendar: The Secret of Qumran.’

Looking at the NEWS Mar 9, 2018 Pot Calling the Kettle
by R.P. BenDedek
March 9, 2018

They not only do not slobber at the mouth in praise of believing Christians for example, but in their virtue signaling orgasm they set the stage for the abuse of the regular Islamic Joe Blow by those in Islam who want to see YOU DEAD. Actually one must wonder if this virtue signaling and politically correct love of Islam is not just some form of rejection of the Judeo-Christian heritage that western people have, and over which so many feel such guilt which is twice intoned should they happen to have white skin.

A Note on the Philistines during the Period of the Judges
by R.P. BenDedek
March 7, 2018

When one examines the history of the Philistines it becomes apparent that their identification is not always accurately provided in Scripture. The term ‘philistine’ is more generic than specific. (Refer to Aharoni. Y. (1978) The Archaeology of the Land of Israel. Philadelphia. Westminster Press.1978,( p.180) for background information of the Philistine origins – the Peleshet and Sherdanu.) … It is clear that from the time of Exodus onwards, Sea Peoples were in Canaan as free settlers and mercenaries for the Egyptians. As Egyptian power waned subsequent to the reigns of Rameses II and Merneptah, the ‘Historical Philistines’ gained their freedom and dominance.

The Chronological History of the Bible Makes No Sense
by R.P. BenDedek
March 5, 2018

The purpose of this article today, is not to argue in favor of the KingsCalendar understanding of Biblical Chronology, but to provide an overview of the picture painted by Biblical Chronology, of the history of Ancient Israel… If you follow Biblical Chronology down through history from 842/841BC through the reigns of successive kings, one hundred years later, by the time you reach 740 BC which as indicated by the charts above is the first year of King Ahaz’ reign, you find yourself in the 42nd year of King Uzziah’s 52 year reign, and have deleted the reigns of King Jotham in Judah and Kings Pekah and Pekahiah in Israel, as well as having removed half of King Menehem’s reign.

Looking at the NEWS March 2nd 2018 – Strange People!
by R.P. BenDedek
March 2, 2018

I know that the USA is a Republic. Ok? But like so many western countries it holds to democratic principles, the first of which is the right to free speech. It is surprising therefore that in the USA where one assumes that free speech is a right, that free speech is actively suppressed by progressive liberals and politically correct types. You don’t believe me? Read on.

The Reign of King Saul – Kingscalendar Chronology
by R.P. BenDedek
February 21, 2018

If Saul was something and one years old when he became king, and reigned something and two years, he will have been either 21 or 31 yrs old when he commenced his reign (in order to qualify as young and handsome), and reigned at least 32 or 42 yrs, to have left a 40 year old son.

Foolish Western Souls: Empty, Negative and Guilt-ridden
by R.P. BenDedek
Feb 6, 2017

Up until the time that Trump became President of the USA I had merely considered the progressive liberals to be somewhat mentally deficient! They were like little children who run in one direction whilst their head is turned in another. WHAM! If you have ever had kids then you know what I am talking about! Once Trump won the election however, I began to see the far left in a new light. I no longer saw them as immature adults but as what they are – empty, negative, contentious, violent, anger filled, soulless individuals who embrace victimhood, take no responsibility for their own actions, and who engage in virtue signaling in order to make themselves feel good.

The Articles Google Won’t Let You Read
by R.P. BenDedek
February 1, 2018

I pulled all of its ads from my website back in 2013 after a company contacted me and pleaded with me to sever the live link in one of my articles to their site because Google had threatened their livelihood if I did not! Google threatened their customer to get them to make me remove my link to their site! That is just plain wrong in anyone’s book. Above everything else, Google is a hypocrite! I know this because I lived in China for 15 years and followed carefully the lead up to Google’s withdrawal from the mainland because it did not like the Communist Government’s dictatorial behavior. BUT GOOGLE IS DICTATORIAL – IT IS A HYPOCRITE!

Political Propaganda: Looking at the NEWS No. 12
by R.P. BenDedek
Dec 2, 2017

Propaganda is the tool of the manipulative and is easily used on the stupid and in the USA it seems that ‘stupid’ is not a rare commodity. Democrats and others on the left (including alleged Republicans) would have you believe that all the political activism against TRUMP (which started before he took his Oath of Office) is all related to their righteous and just causes as they uphold the Constitution of the USA and the principles of Democracy and Freedom. Unfortunately for them the facts demonstrate something different as one can read in this following tidbit.

The False Narrative: Looking at the NEWS No. 11
by R.P. BenDedek
Nov 16, 2017

These same media types – the ones now screaming to have their voices heard in the media concerning improper sexual advances made by media moguls and powerful media personalities, KEPT QUIET for decades about the abuse of young male and female actors in Hollywood…. he had taken clippings from a newspaper which showed a photograph of two beautiful women – both mothers of children – now living in a Lesbian relationship… Men are to blame for women turning into lesbians… Women don’t need men anymore because men are useless… If women are becoming lesbians because men can’t satisfy them (in a myriad of ways) then it [homosexuality] must be a choice… The story, far from indicating that MEN ARE AT FAULT, clearly told me that the women’s marriages failed because they couldn’t be honest with themselves or their husbands.

Is Anybody Paying Attention? : Looking at the News No. 10
by R.P. BenDedek
Nov 5, 2017

Another issue concerning which most people pay little attention – if they are even aware of it – is the ‘Law of Unintended Consequences.’ This little universal law often makes mush of our fantastically righteous ideologies. In Catalonia, Beersheba, The Ottomans, Tibetans and Palestinians which I published on October 30th. 2017, I pointed out that the whole issue of Catalan independence is a can of ideological worms for all of those whose hearts bleed for Palestinian Independence.

Virtue Signalling and Terrorism
by R.P. BenDedek
Oct 31, 2017

To say that there is no connection between Islam, Muslims and terror is a denial of truth and the constant refusal to acknowledge the truth is suicidal. When mad cow disease hit England they destroyed whole herds of cattle to stop the spread of the disease. Many were undoubtedly not infected. They did the same in China to the chickens when bird flu hit. The mentality in the west toward Muslims however is that we must protect the guilty in order not to cause pain and suffering to the innocent. (And of course this ultimately leads to Islamic oppression of the decent or secular or non radical Muslim).

Catalonia, Beersheba, The Ottomans, Tibetans and Palestinians
By R.P. BenDedek
Oct 30, 2017

The British took the land from the Ottoman Turks and eventually divided it between Jews and Muslims. They either had that right or they did not!… The difference between Catalonia and Tibet on the one hand and the Palestinians on the other, is that neither Catalonia nor Tibet have called for, nor stated their desire for the destruction of Spain or China, whilst the Palestinians via their leaders in Hamas and Fatah have made it quite clear that there will never be peace with the Jews until every last one of them has been thrown into the sea.

Looking at the NEWS No. 9 – Standing Against The Truth
by R.P. BenDedek
Oct 19, 2017

In Canada meanwhile, free speech is under threat from anticipated legislation in relation to Hate Speech laws which will, if they are introduced, make it impossible to criticize anything about Islam or Muslims. Muslim human rights activist and Clarion Project board member Raheel Raza however has appeared before the Canadian Parliament to oppose this effort to stifle free speech; an effort which she sees as promoting all sorts of social injustices.

Looking at the NEWS No. 8: The Coming War in the USA
by R.P. BenDedek
Oct 8, 2017

There could be more trouble than we ever imagined headed our way on November 4th when a bunch of folks who aren’t happy about Trump and Pence attempt to overthrow the government in a Communist revolution. Groups like Antifa, Resist Fascism, and the Revolutionary Communist Party have been meeting for months to openly plan sedition and organize what they promise will be massive protests all over the country. Don’t be surprised if things become violent… A disturbing Antifa website is calling for physical violence against supporters of President Donald Trump and capitalists. The site “It’s Going Down,” which has become a resource for self-described “anti-fascist” activists, encourages violence against anyone it labels a “fascist.”

Looking at the NEWS No. 7 Oct 3, 2017
by R.P. BenDedek
Oct 3, 2017

Someone who writes under the name Old Woolfy at i.Patriot.com wrote on Sept 29, 2017 that not all of those on the left agree with all of the rubbish currently being pumped out on the left in the USA. He writes in Liberal Downfall: Lunacy Right Before Our Eyes! … Timothy Meads (Oct 01, 2017) in an article titled British Professor Shows “Sex Change Regret” is Rising, University Takes Away His Funding points out that once the preliminary research report demonstrated that many transgendered people had later come to regret their decision, the research was rejected. Honestly, whilst all the ‘feel good’ people are busy virtue signaling their support for young people who believe that they are living in the wrong body, the reality is that their support may one day come home to bite them in the ass.

The IDIOTS at Microsoft
by R.P. BenDedek
Oct 2, 2017

And don’t get me started on all those pro forma sections on websites that REQUIRE you to fill in your details. They want your home number – which is fine, but your mobile number which is currently for a different country IS NOT ALLOWED and so you can’t proceed with whatever you needed to do. Once again the expectation that you pay $5 per day to have phone roaming while you are living overseas or on holidays.

Looking at the NEWS No 6. Sept 28, 2017
by R.P. BenDedek
Sept 28, 2017

There are some also in the USA right now trying to redefine the American political process by insisting that the American Electoral College is a national security threat or so it was reported by Luis Orozco in his September 21st article “The Electoral College Is A National Security Threat”: Liberal Politico Now Pushing For COLLAPSE”. God only knows what will happen if it is abolished and republicans still win the presidential election. Perhaps they will just ban middle Americans from voting, or at very least the Christians.

Looking at the NEWS No. 5 Sept 24, 2017
by R.P. BenDedek
Sept 24, 2017

I have in the past been asked why I write the things I do since it is unlikely to change any person’s opinions and I have replied that it is not my intention to change people’s opinions but to provide alternative perspectives for young people inundated with media lies and political propaganda. That is why the concept of democratic freedom of speech is so important. When society stops allowing people the right to express their opinions, true Democracy ceases to be.

Looking at the NEWS No. 4 Sept 21, 2017 by R.P. BenDedek

September 21, 2017

In today’s edition we commence with another belly laugh. Recently the Dems have been working with Trump on the DACA issue and undoubtedly many Dems have been preening their feathers but as Nancy Pelosi has discovered, the ‘Dreamers’ couldn’t care less.

Sept 18, 2017

In other world shattering news, that great unknown world unfamous and politically incorrect writer, author and ESL teacher – MOI – has changed merchant banks. He is no longer selling his book Finding Myself in China: A Politically Incorrect Story for US$8.99 via WorldPay. The book now sells for AUD$5.99 through PAYPAL.

Sept 14, 2017

Sometimes I just don’t get the stupidity of the human race. In the following article there is a report that some nurses were suspended after it was discovered that they had been peeking at a dead man’s penis….Honest to God I sometimes wonder if Americans are the dumbest people on earth. Their political correctness and bleeding hearts cloud all judgement thanks to what Lloyd Marcus refers to as media slime-balls who sell their lies to the public.

Looking at the News No. 1 – Sept 9, 2017
by R.P. BenDedek
Sept 9, 2017

This is the first of what is hoped to be a series of articles commenting on world news. These articles will be decidedly ‘anti-leftist’ (because I find ‘them’ to be quite insane) but the articles will not automatically be ‘pro-rightest.’…Google is an active participant in the suppression of free speech, or rather, in any speech which offends its political ideology. I personally say ‘screw Google,’ but then again I usually say ‘Screw the USA’ as well. Australia is always a couple of years behind the USA and from what I see in the USA, the future of Australia is bleak. I’m glad I will not live long enough to witness it at its peak.

The Collapse of the USA: Preaching to the Choir
by R.P. BenDedek
Sept. 2, 2017

When I look at the news and see the LIES, the crass stupidity, the blatant hypocrisy, hatred masking itself as love, totalitarianism calling itself anti-fascist, and the intentional program of deceiving an entire nation and future generations, it makes me sick to the stomach and I am reminded of The book of Romans Chapter 1 around verse 28/29 which talks about what happens to people who refuse to acknowledge truth but call truth lies and call the lie truth.

2017 Articles

‘And Jesus Wept’
by R.P. BenDedek
August 23, 2017

Unfortunately (and even today in the Christian world this still applies), people mistakenly believe that they can ‘earn the grace’ of God by doing those things which a righteous man does. The fallacy in this type of thinking is obvious when you consider how many (self-proclaimed) righteous, loving, tolerant, non-discriminatory, immigrant welcoming, anti-Trump’s wall, anti-homophobic and anti-islamophobic people there are in the world who would not for a moment hesitate to beat you up, shout you down, hound you, stalk you, curse you, call for your death, seek to have you fired from your job and generally act like nazis toward you simply because you voted for Donald Trump.

‘Counter Protesters’ ARE the cause of violence
by R.P. BenDedek
August 18, 2017

When counter protesters set out to impede, provoke and confront an opposing ideological group, what results is what one would expect to result and only the idiotic, mindless, anally retentive and just plain stupid person would claim that it is not their fault that the protesters got upset or took action against them. But who are we kidding here? Counter protesters don’t believe in righteousness or otherwise. They are just rabble – SS troopers – sent in to do their master’s bidding. Give them all a baton and gun and see how quickly they will turn into killing machines to rid society of all its evils – starting with Donald Trump of course!

Shantang Street Echo Coffee & Bar for Tourists in Suzhou City
by R.P.BenDedek
July 6, 2017

Mao Wenwen reminded me that when she was my student I would often refer to her as Mao Zedong. I do that sometimes – calling students by the names of famous or infamous people. Paying honor to me as her English teacher Mao Wenwen provided me the coffee free of charge (courtesy of the management). She also invited Johnny and me to come inside and take a look around, and once I did, I decided that I wanted to come back to take photos. Receiving permission from the owner, all I needed was the chance to get back.

The King’s Calendar and Sociology
by R.P. BenDedek
June 20, 2017

I’m sure if you understand what Sociology is that you would find my statement rather strange for it leads to the question of what impact the King’s Calendar Research Result has on society and societal problems. But before we go look at that aspect, I want to talk about the personal aspect – MY aspect.

Truth and the Destruction of Chinese Churches
by R.P. BenDedek
June 13, 2017

The demolition came as row between the church and government escalated over allegations the church refused to pay a £450 arbitrary road usage fee. Pastor Zhang Di was summoned for questioning last month and accused of assaulting police officers and attacking a village official. So when I read reports as in the link you sent and see the ACTUAL TRUTH in the middle of the article, I know that there is a lot more going on than is being reported.

I am a Lover, an Atheist, a Patriot and I stand with Islam
by R.P. BenDedek
June 11, 2017

Well obviously I am misrepresenting the meaning of the protester here. What they mean is that they support the right of one section of society to have and to hold their own culture and beliefs and they do this by protesting against another section of society’s right to have and to hold their own culture and beliefs.

Islam and Rationality : A Subjective Perception
by R.P. BenDedek
June 4, 2017

As for a non-Muslim who posits that Islamic Terrorists do not truly practice Islam or truly believe in Allah, they are speaking either from complete ignorance, or subjective rationale relative to whatever it is that they have been told, or heard, or read. The word subjective relates a personal position relative to a particular situation. That does not of course mean that the subjective perception is ABSOLUTELY / ULTIMATELY incorrect. It may well be correct – the ultimately provable fact of the matter.

What is the correct etiquette for using the Facebook LIKE button?
by R.P. BenDedek
May 28, 2017

And so I began using the LIKE button. Ah such freedom! New sunrise photo – LIKE! Second day of school award for my granddaughter – LIKE! My 98 year old grandmother passed away yesterday – LIKE! But then the weirdest thing happened. Someone posted an article about two homosexuals who were given a public flogging in Indonesia. So I hit LIKE! Bloody hell! 23 threats of physical violence upon my person, and 17 announcements that I was about to be defriended. WTF?

The Life and Chronology of the Israelite Patriarch Joseph
by R.P. BenDedek
April 28, 2017

So there you have it. The Patriarch Joseph was born in 1683BC. He was set over the Kingdom of Egypt in 1656BC. The Israelite Sojourn in Egypt commenced in 1648BC. Joseph died in 1582BC. The Hyksos were expelled in 1554BC. Moses was born in 1523BC.The Exodus commenced in 1449BC. The Israelites entered Caanan in 1412BC and 480 years later in the 4th year of Solomon the first temple commenced construction in 970 BC.

The Once Great but now Rogue State of America
by R.P. BenDedek / J.J. Walsh & U. N. Owen
April 22, 2017

I am going to make some statements about the USA as might be found in the newspaper of a mythical communist country called, ‘The Democratic Marxist Republic of Californication.’ In doing so, I am going to be making statements that a casual world news observer or internet savvy foreigner might actually consider to be factual based on extensive exposure to western media.

Learning HOW to read : Media Triggers
by R.P. BenDedek
April 20, 2017

Disciplining yourself to pay attention to the actual words used and the actual meaning of the sentence is very important, especially so since so much of what purports to be news is little more than the writer’s opinion about the facts of the news. Unfortunately, people easily succumb to emotive language such as ‘Donald Trump demonstrates his stupidity again!’ Such a headline is designed to reinforce in the minds of those who don’t like Trump, that he is an idiot. Another thing of which to be careful when reading is the inclination to ‘interpret’ what we read within the context of our religious, cultural and political worldviews.

We Love to Hate our Presidents
by John J. Walsh
April 20, 2017

It is a fact it is for sure, that no matter who is president, one half of the country speaks nothin but bad of him; while the other half thinks that the sun shines out his ass, while the other half pontificates on Presidential suitability without ever having voted at all.

The Oral/Verbal Presentation of a Speech – English as a Second Language
by R.P. BenDedek
April 12, 2017

When you stand to speak you are doing more than reciting words. You are in fact engaged in communicating with an audience your opinions, ideas, feelings, passions and/or knowledge on a subject. They expect you to express yourself with feeling and passion and to actually know what you are talking about. Therefore it is essential that you KNOW what you are talking about – and – show the appropriate body language, gestures, actions and emotions associated with your topic.

Book One Photographs : Villages in Central China
by R.P. BenDedek
April 7, 2017

The kids used to turn up repeatedly throughout the day just to look at the foreigner, touch him, feel the hair on his (the monkey’s) arms and generally just gawk. China has changed a lot over the years but there have been times when a foreigner in a small town or village would attract huge crowds. Sometimes people would be known to suddenly come upon you, look up at your face and just plain scream! I’m not joking!

The Irony in Democracy
by John J. Walsh
April 5, 2017

Many there are who delight in bringin shame to their country and heritage, and all in the name of some blessed cause or other, but when there be no difference at all between their words and behavior and those of our worst enemies, how be it that such folk can think of themselves as ‘decent, patriotic or right-minded’?

On Islamic Violence
by R.P. BenDedek / Bilal Racheha
March 31, 2017

Unfortunately, the West does not know what every Muslim scholar knows; that the worst enemies of Islam are from within. The worst of these are the khawaarij who delude others by the deeply dyed religious exterior that they project. The Prophet, peace be upon him, said about them, “When you see them pray you will consider your own prayers insignificant. They recite the Quran but it does not exceed the limits of their throat.” In other words, they don’t understand the true meanings.

March 28, 2017

When I see the news on the ‘idiot box’ as we liked to call it when I was younger, or read the news, I sometimes feel a little sick in the stomach. There is an old sayin that ‘No news is good news’, and given the choice between what is presented as news and havin no news, I’ll take the latter thank you very much.

Below is a one minute 43 second youtube video featuring Muslim Human Rights Activist Raheel Raza from the Clarion Project, in which she says of Donald Trump that though he is politically incorrect, he won the election ‘with a mandate among other things to call radical Islam what it is’ and she invites people to stop being politically correct and begin talking about radical Islam.

If Trump has his way, people will have to rely on ingenuity and hard work to succeed in life, and will be expected to be decent, moral citizens. God forbid that he succeeds in getting control of the judiciary! It will be back to the dark ages of Constitutional Limited Government and common sense!

Where were these PC (expletive) when I and others were writing years ago about the Syrian crisis? Did they care about the Syrian people? No they didn’t! Do these same sociopathic western political activists who would call me a racist support Muslim and other cultures similar practices such as female circumcision? – polygamy? – arranged marriages? No they don’t! They outlaw it! So don’t talk to me about how I am a racist!

I do apologize for the singing – mine – and by way of explanation, the reason that you hear me saying ‘hello’ (twice) is that a man told his son to say hello and when I decided to say ‘hello’ a lady walking passed me thought I had said it to her and so she also greeted me with ‘hello!’

The Liberal, PC, Racist and Multicultural Lie!
by R.P. BenDedek
March 8, 2017

Everyone is so concerned to be politically correct and so worried about being perceived racist, that they fail to see that in fact the true racists with the truly incorrect political agenda are the ones pointing the finger and doing the name calling. (In psychology it would be called reaction formation; the suppression of one impulse by the promotion of a counter impulse.)

Ambassador Ettinger’s Six Minute Video Series on the US-Israel Ties

March 6, 2017

Ambassador (Retired) Yoram Ettinger has produced a mini-seminar video on United States, Israel and Middle East Policy and Security, and the seminar has also been produced as a series of separate Six Minute Videos, some of which have appeared embedded in their text format published here at Kingscalendar.

March 1, 2017

Having met up with my pen friend we went ‘somewhere’ and there was this big open paved garden type area and there were platforms going nowhere which you ascended by climbing stairs. Through the middle of the paved courtyard-garden ran a little pond. I was fully aware of its existence but so focused was I on taking a good photo that I was walking while looking through the viewfinder of the camera. I fell straight into the pond.

Feb 24, 2017

Given the new American President’s desire to actually cause the USA to prosper, and given the number of calls for breaking the regulatory strangle hold that some political bodies have on business and the community, I thought it might be worthwhile republishing this litte tale.

Being Aware of Religious Persecution – (VIDEO)
by R.P. BenDedek
Feb 17, 2017

The point in providing these videos on behalf of the Clarion Project is to hopefully assist in getting the word out that the extreme liberal progressive ideology does not represent REALITY when dealing with the politically motivated fundamentalist Islamist plan.

Welcoming Jihad or Being Free (VIDEO)
by R.P. BenDedek
Feb 6, 2017

Despite all the hysterical accusations made by the sociopathic ideologues, the reality is that REAL everyday Muslims who have left their homelands to settle in democracy loving western lands DON’T WANT to be controlled by Islamists. They more than anyone else know what living under Islamic (theocratic) political and social control means.

Politically Correct Ideology leads ultimately to insanity
by R.P. BenDedek
Feb 6, 2017

Politically Correct Ideologues are people who become so trapped inside fundamentalist thinking, that they lose contact with the real world and see nothing other than their ideology. In short, they are totally focussed on what is inside their own heads, which is why I constantly refer to such people as ‘sociopathic.’

Is Communist China better than the American Republic?
by R.P. BenDedek
Feb 1, 2017

In China, the rights of society take precedence over individual human rights. This, we Westerners call totalitarianism and from an ideological perspective, desire to destroy it right? But ask yourself this: “What does MY country promote?”

Trump, The Media Con and The Illusion of Truth
by R.P. BenDedek
Jan 31, 2017

There is no doubt that the immediacy of Trump’s order has caused inconvenience for many people, like the one I read about today of an Australian woman who arrived in the US only to be told that she had to leave because of her unacceptable dual citizenship. And I quote the illusion of truth:

What do you know about Seder Olam Rabbah?
by R.P. BenDedek
Jan 27, 2017

Right now you are probably asking, ‘What the heck is the Seder Olam Rabbah?’ So here is a little information gleaned from a variety of online sources. Seder Olam Rabbah is Jewish literature of second century A.D. dated to about 160 AD. and first printed in 1514. It is a Midrashic chronological work generally regarded as a work of the tanna Jose b. Halafta. [The “tannaim” were the masters of the “oral law,” i.e. the men who wrote the Talmud.]

Historical Manipulation of the Bible

Deciphering the Chronologies of Josephus
by R.P. BenDedek
Jan 21, 2017

We see an extremely important deviation from all that has gone before in the ‘King’s Calendar.’ For the First time, we are encountering the artificial construct in relation to the tabulation of the reigns of non-Jewish kings. Someone has gone to the trouble of researching non Jewish history and converting that solar history into the artificial construct, and as has been pointed out previously, Josephus was ignorant of the artificial calendar.

Has the TRUMP of God’s Judgment sounded on America?
by R.P. BenDedek
Jan 19, 2017

After the presidential election there came a point when I, along with so many others in the world, just looked upon the USA as a big joke; a laughing stock. But as time has gone on, that joke has turned sour and right now I can’t help but think America is about to go through – and I apologize for sounding religiously self-righteous – a shaking judgment.

King Jehu of Israel Killed King Ahaziah of Judah and King Jehoram of Israel
by R.P. BenDedek
Jan 18, 2017

No archeological discovery has ever controverted a single biblical reference. Scores of archeological findings have been made which confirm in clear outline or exact detail historical statements in the Bible. And, by the same token, proper evaluation of Biblical descriptions has often led to amazing discoveries. Almost 100% of The King’s Calendar reconstruction of Ancient Israelite History fits into currently acceptable historical chronological perspectives.

Jan 14, 2017

Standing on the Levee road looking at the Yangtze River was not quite the thrilling and exotic experience of a lifetime. The Yangtze River is only exotic in tourist dreams. Lotus square is immediately behind me in this photo and that land in the distance on the other side of the river is not actually on the other side of the river but is a floating island (apparently). My guess is that it is primarily a sandbar which keeps shifting appearance and location.

Did Queen Athaliah Really Kill ‘All’ the Royal Children?
by R.P. BenDedek
Jan 11, 2017

We look at an issue in relation to Queen Athaliah of Judah in which the Bible alleges that she killed all the heirs to the throne to steal the throne for herself. That this picture is perhaps not correct is alluded to later in the Bible records of the reign of King Joash when reference is made to advice he received from his royal relatives.

The Other Side of Gender Violence 2017
Jan 6, 2017

I did it to demonstrate that the political feminist agenda is warped in the way it represents both men and women. It has fostered the idea that it is men and men alone who are the violent ones in society; it is men who are the abusers. This is plainly not true and legitimate research proves it to be untrue, but since it offends so many sociopathic politically correct ideological feminist minds to give proper recognition of the facts, we don’t often hear any public discussion on the topic of female violence.

Tears for the Death of the United States of America
by R.P. BenDedek
Jan 4, 2017

I cry for America for two reasons. The first is that the light of honesty and decency – the hallmarks of democracy – are being extinguished by puerile and apparently sociopathic people. But perhaps the more important reason for my tears is that I believe that what we are seeing now is the death throes of the American Republic. If America falls, then so too does democracy, and if democracy falls, what hope do any of the peoples of the world have?

Academic Error : Reign of King Nebuchadnezzar (Part 2)
by R.P. BenDedek
Jan 2, 2017

Nebuchadrezzar’s campaign against Jerusalem dated here to 596 BC (not 597 BC) whilst a fact, poses some difficulties, not just in relation to biblical chronology or biblical narrative for that matter, but with the details provided in the Babylonian Chronicles. Since it was not possible for Nebuchadrezzar to have accomplished everything necessary between Kislev and Adar 2nd, it has been determined that Jehoiachin had succeeded Jehoiakim prior to Nebuchadrezzar’s forces leaving Babylon. (Wiseman, 1961, p.33)

Adjusting D.J. Wiseman’s Chronology for 607 – 595 BC Babylon and Judah

London) using Babylonian Chronicles B.M. 22047 (p.65) and BM 21946 (p.67) but with a one (1) year adjustment for the Reigns of Nabopolassar and Nebuchadrezzar.

The Error Regarding King Nebuchadrezzar’s Reign (Part 1)
by R.P. BenDedek
Jan 2, 2017

This article is devoted to demonstrating that pieces of the historical jigsaw in relation to Ancient Near Eastern History that were thought to fit the jigsaw have actually been forced to fit; and many pieces thought by historians to have been superfluous and which were consequently thrown away, actually do belong. You will find nothing in this article by way of chronology or narrative, that contradicts the Egyptian, Assyrian or Babylonian Records of events that transpired during the period from 609 BC to 562 BC, the period covered in this article.

The Significance of the Reign of Kandalanu King of Babylon
by R.P. BenDedek
Jan 1, 2017

If the dates calculated for Kandalanu, or the understanding of ‘the year in which there was no king’ (after Kandalanu’s death), or the understanding or interpretation of various business contracts is incorrect, then the reigns of Kandalanu, Nabopolassar and Nebuchadrezzar, from 648 BC to 587 BC will be incorrect.

The Presidential Lame Duck Backstab: The Real Obama

The Jewish settlers of Ofra and Amona have been wondering what has happened to neighboring Arab villages such as Silwad. According to Gibor, between 80 and 90 percent of Dir Dibwan’s residents have an American citizenship. One local resident, Muhammad Manasra, who splits his life between the village and California, estimates the population in the two neighboring villages at 16,000, most of them living abroad…

The Trump Effect: From Radical Terrorist to Welcomed Guest
by R.P. BenDedek
Dec 25, 2016

In the years ahead, all conservatives everywhere absolutely MUST do two things. Firstly, they must not act like sociopathic liberal progressives, and secondly, they must do their part to maintain the freedoms inherently granted them in their Republic. The reason madness got so far in the past is that sane people kept their mouths shut!

In Book One of those travel adventures, I talk about a number of different times I traveled to Chibi Village and Puqi (Chibi City) in Hubei Province. On this page today, I have collated from the articles listed below, a few photographs which I have tried to present sequentially as a trip to Chibi Town and Chibi City/Puqi. Each has a little commentary which might only make sense if you actually read the articles or eventually buy the book.

Political Correctness is bare faced totalitarianism!

Dec 23, 2016

The fact that we don’t like a foreign ethnicity or it’s culture, does not detract from our duty as citizens to be decent human beings. But when you force me to accept people, I object! When you punish me for not deceiving you with politically correct language, I object. If you ask me a question, I will give you my honest opinion. If you are a Politically Correct person who prefers that I lie, then sod off!

Irrational Phobia or Rational Fear? Islamophobia awards
by R.P. BenDedek
Dec 22, 2016

The Liberal Progressives have done their best over the years to guilt trip western societies but when you read the article listed above and see Raheel Raza’s video, you can’t help but note that the guilt foisted onto society by the left is ‘false guilt.’

King Ahab of Israel and Ben-Hadad of Syria
R.P. BenDedek
Dec 20, 2016

This chart takes the calculations further, down to 722 BC when Hoshea of Israel was taken captive allegedly in the 6th year of Hezekiah. In fact it was the 6th year of Ahaz. These two charts ending in 722 BC show a discrepancy of 19 years. REMEMBER that these reigns are SYNCHRONIZED in the Bible. In Math that translates as 260 = 241

On this page today, I have collated from the articles listed below, a few photographs which I have tried to present sequentially as a trip from Yichang up to Sanxia. Each has a little commentary which might only make sense if you actually read the articles or eventually buy the book.

Bible Misidentification of Kings 8th Century BC
by R.P. BenDedek
Dec 18, 2016

As a warning to those readers who hold that every English word in the Bible is Divine, infallible and immutable, this article indicates that some sections of Israelite history have been recorded incorrectly by the ancient redactors. To date no-one has been successfully able to synchronise the biblical data provided for the houses of Judah and Israel for this period of history, with either each other, or with the known history of the Ancient Near East.

Progressive Liberal Democracy Loving Muslims Glad Obama is out!

Dec 15, 2016

On this page today I want to bring to your attention three videos that relate to the negative effect of Islam on Western Democracies. Before the Far Left Liberal Progressives start screaming and shouting, let me just tell you that the American brand of Leftist Liberal Progressivism is precisely what the first speaker – a Muslim – indicates is the problem in America.

Adad-Nirari III and his Western Campaigns: Tribute from Jehoash of Israel
by R.P. Bendedek
Dec 14, 2016

We sometimes tend to think that our knowledge of history is based on irrefutable evidence, but as pointed out by Sir Alan Gardiner (1961) [James Et.Al 1991 p.222] in reference to Egyptian History, our knowledge is based in a collection of rags and tatters. The King’s Calendar demonstrates that following the synchronisms provided in the books of Kings and Chronicles does put Jehoash of Israel on the throne by 806 BC, thereby making possible the primary text reading of the Saba’a Inscription that in Adad-Nirari’s 5th year (806/05 BC), he reached Damascus.

You can watch the entire mini-seminar if you are so inclined or pick and choose from the list of six minute videos found at the bottom of his articles here at Kingscalendar.

Rejecting the threat of ideological terrorism

1 Kings 6:1 : Solomon’s Temple and 480 years
by R.P. BenDedek
Dec 11, 2016

This article relates to the issue of the 480 years quoted in 1 Kings 6:1 in relation to the Mosaic Exodus and the building of Solomon’s Temple. It is in fact an ‘excerpt’ from Chapter 14 of the King’s Calendar. According to the authorised version, 1 King’s 6:1, tells us that Solomon’s 4th year is the 480th year since the Israelites came out of the land of Egypt. The Septuagint however tells us that it is the 440 th. year.

Others saw what the Democrats did not
R.P. BenDedek/ Ambassador Yoram Ettinger
Dec 9, 2016

Perhaps if anyone had noticed the Ambassador’s words of wisdom in 2015 the election results might have been different. Now, despite the raging and foaming at the mouth of the losers, the election is over, and rather than acting like tantrum throwing children or worse, acting like hate filled anarchists, the people of the United States of America need act like mature adults who love and respect their democratic freedoms.

Rules of Evidence Part 4: The Deaths of Jehoram of Israel and Ahaziah of Judah
by R.P. BenDedek
Dec 9, 2016

Since the King’s Calendar puts Jehoram’s death at 849 BC., current academic opinion that Hazael of Syria commenced to reign around 842/841 BC. can be seen to be incorrect. (Be aware that there is absolutely no archaeological or historical evidence to support current academic opinion.)…When it comes to chronological events in the records, academics can’t even agree how the chronological data ought to be applied. Referring to Tiglath-Pileser’s campaigns, we have two different dates for the exact same campaign. (E.R. Thiele (1966, p.97) puts the 743 BC campaign in 738 BC.)

Pharaoh of the Exodus Revealed
by R.P. BenDedek
Dec 7, 2016

In Exodus 14:5 however, we read that Pharaoh had to be told that the Israelites had fled, as though it was unknown to him. Furthermore, he appears confused by it, asking ‘Why have we done this, that we have let Israel go from serving us?’ In Antiquities 2:15:3 [Whiston. W. (1993) The Works of Josephus. Hendrickson Publishers. Massachusetts. USA p.75] Josephus records that pharaoh ‘was mightily concerned that this (Exodus) had been procured by the magic arts.’

Musing about King Trump
by R.P. BenDedek
Dec 4, 2016

The first thing that strikes me is that the King-elect simply refuses to go with that most heinous crime against which the liberal progressives rage – the status quo. He apparently does this of course because he is not beholden to either the Democrats or the Republicans.

Kurkh Stele of Shalmaneser III is wrong (Laws of Evidence Pt. 3)
by R.P. BenDedek
Dec 2, 2016

All academic chronological reconstructions are based upon the presumptive acceptance of the ‘factual truth’ of the biblical assertion in relation to Jehu, Jehoram and Ahaziah, even though there is no corroborating evidence to indicate that the story is true. In the case of the historical direct evidence documents upon which historians rely, documents like the the Bible, Mesha’s Stela, the Kurkh Stela of Shalmaneser III and the Babylonian Chronicles (Wiseman 1961), not only are they written from the perspectives of the writers, but their methods of chronological recording are all different.

In Search of the Pharaoh of the Exodus
by R.P. BenDedek
Nov 30, 2016

Starting in 586 BC as the Year of the Babylonian Exile, the King’s Calendar synchronizes all the chronological data for the Divided Kingdom period and arrives eventually at 970 BC for Solomon’s 4th year, the year in which he commenced building the Temple. Note that in doing so, the King’s Calendar discovered 13.5 years of overlapping reigns and so uses a composite total that is less than that used by other researchers.

How, When, where Did King Josiah Die?
by R.P. BenDedek
Nov 27, 2016

Our current perception of what is recorded in relation to the death of Josiah has been influenced by two very prominent things, one of which is the wording in the biblical historical narrative, and the other is ‘academic opinion’ in relation to ancient history. On this latter point it has to be reiterated that academic opinion only relies on biblical texts when there is an absence of other evidence. In fact our perceptions of this biblical event may not be correct within the true historical context.

Left and Right Hate Filled America

Nov 24, 2016

From media reports to editorial comments to readership comments on all manner of articles and on Facebook and other social media outlets, there is a hate war going on. Is this what America truly is? A country of hate filled people?

Battle of Qarqar – 853 BC Rules of Evidence Part 2
by R.P. BenDedek
Nov 23, 2016

Last week’s article concluded that while there are two ‘Direct Documentary Evidences’ used to support the Academic contention that King Ahab fought at the Battle of Qarqar, in fact, their testimonies conflict with each other in that one completely omits the ‘fact in issue.’ Additionally, we saw that even if they agreed, they could not legally be considered ‘corroborative’ evidence, as corroborative evidence must be independent evidence.

Who was King Hezekiah’s Father and How long was Hezekiah sick?
by R.P. BenDedek
Nov 18, 2016

King Uzziah’s son Jotham, who is usually written off by academics as not actually having had his own independent reign, is, according to the King’s Calendar, the Jehoahaz recorded in Ancient Assyrian Records as having paid tribute to Tiglath-Pileser III of Assyria. Modern scholars have assumed that Jehoahaz must have been the full name of King Ahaz, whose proper name in all probability, was Ahaziah. Then of course there is the problem of King Hezekiah.

Bible History Error: Kings Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezkiah of Judah
by R.P. Bendedek
Nov 18, 2016

There are three important academically accepted ‘factual’ historical determinants that we must keep in mind if we are to understand the Biblical information for this time period. These events are pivotal to all chronologies, since historians insist that they and their given dates are unalterably fixed.

The Battle of Qarqar 853 BC : Reliability of the Evidence
by R.P. BenDedek
Nov 14, 2016

The intention of this article is to offer a polemical rebuttal of academic methodology in reconstructing the history of Israel and concentrates specifically on the legal processes related to reliability of evidence. The Battle of Qarqar in 853 BC. is an important event in relation to the chronology of the Ancient Near East. The ‘King’s Calendar’ position however is that current academic attempt to link King Ahab of Israel to the Battle of Qarqar is based upon completely false foundations.

Methodology of The Secret of Qumran: King’s Calendar
by R.P. Bendedek
Nov 14, 2016

That in order to generate a calendar that reflects both the ‘True and Original’ Solar year history as well as the artificial history, the missing one and one quarter days per true solar year converted must be reinserted into the artificial calendar that is created in order to reflect the ‘Actual’ solar years elapsing during that history.

The first seven photographs are from two different articles about West Lake or Xihu in Hangzhou. The following two photographs are from Shaoxing which is just an hour by bus from West Lake, and the last two are from Ningbo a town I visited many years ago as part of a school outing but this weekend Nov 11-13, 2016 I am back there visiting with a foreign friend who is there on business.

Trump’s Presidency will not bring peace

I don’t know that Trump can do a better job than any other – especially Clinton, but I really can’t imagine that he could do any worse – except perhaps by failing to line the pockets of elitists and multinational corporations.

Assumptions and Limitations of ‘The Secret of Qumran’ Research

Nov 6, 2016

The first four photographs were published in one article. The second four were published in another article. The last two photographs are teasers for Hangzhou. If you click onto any photo, you will be redirected to the story in which that photograph appears…My records show that this is the Music Room or Entertainment Room within the Chu tower complex. I was sitting on one of those seats when, in opening a bottle of coke, I showered not only myself and my Chinese friends, but a Chinese lady sitting in front of me!

Chronological Differences LXX (Septuagint) and MSS (Masorete)
by R.P. BenDedek
Nov 6, 2016

Mosorete is not technically correct in reference to Texts prior to the 9th Century AD. Text of the Day is more appropriate. See Lipman. D.P. (2000) Gates to Jewish Heritage.) That history has been transmitted to us with precision, as is demonstrated by the Isaiah scrolls from Qumran. Although they come from a different period in time (a thousand years earlier than our oldest biblical texts), and are written in a different type of writing, they yet remain (in content transmission) almost identical. [Yadin. Y. (1957) The Message of the Scrolls. Weidenfeld & Nicholson. London. p.83]

Synchronous Chronology of Ancient Israel and Judah
by R.P. BenDedek
Nov 5, 2016

Using Solar Year Calculations to synchronise Biblical Data is insufficient to understand Biblical and Extra Biblical Chronology and Historical Narrative, and contradicts known history….The two great significances of the secular academic approach is that 701 BC which is supposed to be Hezekiah’s 14th year, is plainly not; and 740 BC becomes Ahaz’ 1st year which completely messes up all Biblical chronology in relation to Uzziah, Jotham, Menehem and Pekah. When working in Solar years counting down from the accepted date for the commencement of the reigns of Jehu (Israel) and Athaliah [Judah], that is, from 841 BC to 701 BC, the results are also alarming. The Significance of these figures, is that they throw all the Biblical data out the window and contradict known history. In order to get around this problem, historians have to reject what the Bible says.

Choosing Onias III as ‘Teacher of Righteousness’
by R.P. BenDedek
Oct 30, 2016

According to the experts, The Damascus Document speaks briefly of the origins of the sect, 390 years after the exile and after 20 years of ‘groping’ blindly for the way “God… raised for them a Teacher of Righteousness..” The KingsCalendar Mathematical projection for the chronology of the Damascus Document aligns with known historical possibilities and appears to refer to High Priest Onias III.

Kings of the Ancient Near East from 934 to 522 BC
by R.P. BenDedek
Oct 23, 2016

The original article was divided into two sections with the first section concerned with the reigns of Nabopolassar and Nebuchadrezzar Kings of Babylon and with Josiah and Jehoiakim Kings of Judah. Section One contains Historical Dates that are specifically pertinent to the reigns of Josiah King of Judah, Jehoiakim King of Judah, and Nebuchadrezzar King of Babylon.

When Did Rameses and Merneptah/Merenptah Reign?
by R.P. BenDedek
Oct 17, 2016

While the proposed “New chronology” would negate the ‘King’s Calendar’ apologetics for the placement of the Exodus within a 15th Century BCE – 18th Dynasty scenario, the significance for the ‘King’s Calendar’ of the New Chronology is that in relation to Merneptah’s Stele, it may now be possible to provide an exact date for this Pharaoh Merenptah’s fifth year.

by R.P. BenDedek
Oct 16, 2016

It seems that the Marxists, in the pursuit of their superior ideology, not only oppress Jews, not only oppress Muslims and not only oppress women, but they welcome an immigrant influx of deeply religious Muslims. And yet, religion is anathema to Marxism. Whatever you may or may not believe, what is clear to any person with eyes to see and ears to hear, and to any person who has watched Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s video, the only way to effectively integrate Muslims into our Western non-Muslim societies, is to STOP aiding and abetting those who wish to destroy us, and START supporting those who seek to stop radical Islamic fundamentalism.

The American President’s Legacy
by R.P. BenDedek
Sept 21, 2016

With all of the unbelievable things going on in America in this period leading up to the next Presidential election, I thought it might be time to revisit my original article. What prompted this revisit was two particular articles here at iPatiot which I heartily recommend that you read. The first is Trump says Bombings Islamic Terror, Hillary says they’re Not by Dustin Koellhoffer and the second is Chaplains Ordered to Not Talk to Homeless Vets! by Rev. Austin Miles.

Politically Correct Second Class Citizens
by R.P. BenDedek
Sept 15, 2016

It seems to me that to be a progressive liberal or just a plain old sociopathic PC ideologue equates with classifying heterosexuals in general and white people in particular as second class citizens responsible for all the ills of the world, and while the white females in the two groups just mentioned might proclaim their might and right, they don’t seem to care much that their counterparts in Muslim countries are and remain second class citizens. They seem to be too involved in vilifying Israel, fighting the Muslim cause and preparing for the day when they too can become second class citizens. They are possibly the most Useful Idiots supporting Islam.

Planning a Presentation or a Speech in English as a Second Language
by R.P. BenDedek
Sept 15, 2016

The One Child Policy has finally affected the number of students entering higher education in China and as a result the Entrance Examination Score required in third tier colleges is lower than in previous years and students now studying English are doing so with less ability than earlier students. They often have great trouble writing reasonably decent presentations and speeches.

Organizing the Points of your Speech or Presentation
by R.P. BenDedek
Sept 15, 2016

Once the order of the points is determined, the writer must then begin the task of putting all those points into sentences which will form separate paragraphs for each section and using “transitions” to link the various paragraphs.

The Outline or Bones of a Speech or Presentation
by R.P. BenDedek
Sept 15, 2016

The Main purpose on this page was to impress on the novice writer, in particular those with English as a second language, the need to PLAN the writing; the need to structure it and the need to put everything into some form of logic order so that as you speak the audience can easily understand and follow your train of thought.

Topic Sentences and Transitions in Speech or Presentation Writing
by R.P. BenDedek
Sept 15, 2016

Writing involves more than just words. In this section we are going to look at paragraphs and their topic sentences and transitions. Generally speaking a paragraph contains a ‘theme’ that may stand alone as one of several different themes in the writing or which in combination with several other paragraphs forms a ‘topic’ within the writing.

R.P. BenDedek Review of ‘Surface Paradise’ by Allan Green
R.P. BenDedek
August 31, 2016

On the more serious side, Chapter Seven wonderfully covers a series of topics reflecting both the good and bad history and politics of Australia and the Australian male attitudes. It is a great chapter for anyone wishing to stir up an argument or even a war, either between men and women, Europeans and Asians or between Australia and the United States and most particularly between the politically correct and those who don’t toe the line.

The Real State of American Politics
by R.P. BenDedek
August 24, 2016

Is this the best that the Democratic and Republican parties can offer? Do either of these two people demonstrate the greatness of America? Honestly! If you think that either of these is indicative of the best that America has to offer, then your country really can’t be that great or at the very least, most members of the two aforementioned parties are real idiots.

R.P. BenDedek Book Review: ‘Mainely Memories’ by Martha Stevens-David
by R.P. BenDedek
August 21, 2016

Her third book “Mainely Memories” however is a collection of stories about/relating to or experienced in her adult life, and some of those stories left an indelibile impression in my mind, and some of them, like the ‘Category 5’ story involving her granddaughter’s curiosity, has forever changed the vision in my mind of this wonderful author whom I have never personally met. You’ll have the read the book to understand that ‘Category 5’ reference.

Traveling from China to Australia with Murphy’s Law
by R.P. BenDedek
August 17, 2016

I knew I shouldn’t have been patting myself on the back for having been smart enough to make sure about my baggage. We arrived in Guangzhou on time, which meant that I had 2 hours and 25 minutes to collect my baggage and check in for the international flight. That is when Murphy struck again. It took forty minutes for our baggage to arrive at the carousel.

R.P. BenDedek Book Review: “The Pfurst Family Diaries” by Richard Soares
by R.P. BenDedek
August 14, 2016

I am not American so I do not know how Americans would respond to this book, but I loved it. This ‘self-published’ book is so well written and so ridiculously funny that I feel sure that it won’t take long for a traditional publisher to offer the author a publishing contract. With the Presidential election on its way in the USA, I think that this satirical story is something that all Americans should sit down and read, particularly those who do not usually vote or who have this time decided not to vote.

How do you know if you are a Racist?
by R.P. BenDedek
July 23, 2016

Notice that I did not say that the ‘immigrants’ demand that we change. I didn’t say that because for the most part it just isn’t true! It has been the godless totalitarian PC sociopaths (activists) who have demanded that we change, and they started first with the claim that nativity scenes in shop windows offended non-Christians. For those who don’t know, Evangelical Christians traditionally don’t believe in icons and depictions of God or Jesus because it is akin to idolatry. If there were any who might have been offended, it was surely the fundamentalist Christians. Certainly the Buddhists and Hindus aren’t offended by nativity scenes, and if you think about it, have you ever heard a Muslim, a Jew or an Evangelical Christian complain about Nativity Scenes?

Linking Islam to Evangelical Christianity
by R.P. BenDedek
July 17, 2016

Unfortunately in Europe and other western countries, the liberals and other bleeding hearts have done everything in their power to enable the Islamization of the west, primarily because they hate their Judeo-Christian historical roots….Society is then divided between those who effectively become enablers of Islam in the West and those who wish to go to war with Islam and every Muslim they encounter. We could argue the merits of both sides of this divide, but I believe that without the input of the former, the input of the latter would be missing.

2016 Book Basket KingsCalendar No 19
by R.P. BenDedek
July 14, 2016

This week’s book basket contains information on four books, one of which I am currently reviewing. I remind readers to support author’s by buying books from the author’s publisher’s website rather than just donate 60% of author royalties to big businesses who sell those books for the same price. In this week’s basket we have publicity material for “The Pfurst Family Diaries” By Richard Soares; “The Other Side of the Song” By Meg Duly; “A Daughter of the Enemy of the People” by Valery Dunaevsky and “Oracles of an Ethiopian Coffeehouse” by Paul Sugg.

Excerpts from ‘Finding Myself in China by R.P. BenDedek
R.P. BenDedek
July 6, 2016

The following is a list of excerpts from ‘Finding Myself in China: A Politically Incorrect Story.’ There are a total of 18 excerpts published here at Kingscalendar. This book will become available very soon. If you like what you see and choose to purchase this book (which no publisher will touch) you will find in it 133 links to stories about China. As the book is only available via my website which is one of those held back by Google, the book will not receive much publicity and so I would hope that you will – should you like it – recommend it to others on your various social media sites.

Urban Myths about the U.S.A. Founding Fathers
by R.P. BenDedek
June 25, 2016

Lamenting these types of petty disputes, Adams declared to Jefferson: “Twenty times in the course of my late reading have I been on the point of breaking out, “This would be the best of all possible worlds if there were no religion in it!!!” But in this exclamation I would have been as fanatical as Bryant or Cleverly. Without religion this world would be something not fit to be mentioned in polite company, I mean hell.”

A video look of what happens Chinese New Year
by R.P. BenDedek
June 24, 2016

All the buildings behind my apartment were low level and fronted a raised area of land. When midnight came the noise was simply horrific. I would have included video and sound of the noise inside my apartment even with all the doors shut, but unfortunately I used some graphic language at that time to describe the experience and as I don’t know how to edit the sound, I had to edit that portion of the video out. In the video, you will see what one foreign teacher described as ‘something akin to the London Blitz.‘ It’s something you have to see to believe.

Who are the ‘Dumb Sheep’ in Society? What does it mean? Are they really idiots?
by R.P. BenDedek
June 19, 2016

Dumb sheep and stupid sheep do exist both in the animal kingdom and in the realms of mortal man. Any person who has worked on a sheep station knows quite well how dumb sheep can be. I’m sure you have experienced times in your life when you justified some action on the basis that someone else did it too, and your guardians asked “And if he jumped off a cliff would you follow him?” You probably bowed your head and said ‘no!’ But in real life, dumb sheep really do just walk off cliffs as they follow the leader.

2016 Book Basket KingsCalendar No. 18
by R.P. BenDedek
June 18, 2016

This week’s book basket contains information on seven books. I remind authors that they can make use of the free promotional offer that is contained in the book basket and I also remind readers that when purchasing books online to be mindful that authors lose a lot of royalties when you buy from big online bookstores rather than buy the same book at the same price from the book publisher’s website. In this week’s basket we have publicity material for “Imperience: Understanding the Heart of Consciousness” By Erik Knud-Hansen; “Dear Mom and Dad” By Georgia Lee McGowen; “The Little Farm in the Big Valley” By Eric Weidler; “Sinister Shape Shift: Dark Memories of a Past Life” by Sachita D Ramdin; Adventures of Mustang Sally” By Mustang Sally and Don Rashke; “Love and Stigma: The Outcast System” By Sir Adolphus O.M.

When your beliefs are manipulated by Media
by R.P. Bendedek
June 11, 2016

There is an ideological competition underway in the west. On the one side, there is reality, and on the other there is political/social ideology. In Australia the useful idiot’s heart bleeds for asylum seekers. Some years back this would have been justified, but today, the asylum seeker debate is pretty much controlled by the Marxists. After all, we MUST help the poor suffering souls on this planet we share. The only problem is that we now know that a significant portion of these poor suffering souls want nothing more than to enter our lives so that they can take control of our society and impose their ideology on it, if not actually destroy us.

News Media and Their PC Political B.S.
by R.P. BenDedek
June 3, 2016

Reading news such as the items mentioned above, I’m never quite sure if the PC ideologues are actually and monumentally STUPID people, or just monumentally ARROGANT people who do not believe that it is necessary to see life through the lens of other people’s existence. They PRETEND to understand and pretend to be concerned but in the end I wonder if they are not just pretentious monumentally stupid arrogant and self-important people.

Reviewing My Opinionated Past (No. 10)
by R.P. BenDedek
May 31, 2016

Whereas once in China people had no right to speak anything other than what was politically allowed, today people are free to express their opinions. In the West, the reverse is happening. Whereas once in China, religion and the religious were persecuted, today they have liberties being denied in the West. Whereas once in China people were either uneducated or politically indoctrinated in Education, today the Chinese are striving for Academic Excellence in order to build a strong nation, and while they do so, in the West it seems Education is, if not merely a tool for the dumbing down of society at large lest the less fortunate or lazy ‘feel bad’ about their underachievements, it seems to be increasingly a system of Political and Social indoctrination.

Racist Chinese and Idiot Political Activists
by R.P. BenDedek
May 27, 2016

Who the hell do these so called progressive liberals think that they are? Are they even aware that research demonstrates that the average Chinese person has more affinity with conservative Americans (read idiotic Christians) than American progressives, and in case you just missed what I have written, three billion Muslims and Chinese DO NOT share your values.

Leo Rosten in a book called The Joys of Yiddish, wrote that there is an old Jewish saying, that the difference between psychotics and neurotics is that while psychotics believe that 2 + 2 = 5, neurotics, although fully cognisant of the fact that 2 + 2 = 4, just simply can’t stand it! Personally, I think there are a lot of neurotics in the world.

Overwhelmed by Love in China This Week
by R.P. BenDedek
Aril 21, 2016

This last week I have received so much genuine love from people who went out of their way to ensure that they caught up with me while they were at school for their graduation. From the Bride’s invitation to the wedding, Defu’s long conversations with me, to Wen organizing and ensuring that I attended Wednesday night’s dinner, to the two boys Jiawei and Yang who both kissed me on the lips, and to Nan who took me to lunch on Friday and thanked me for giving her zero in her first speaking test, I have been the recipient of so much love this week.

Reviewing My Opinionated Past [No.8]
by R.P. Bendedek
May 17, 2016

Pavlov’s dog and psychological conditioning: Most people are just dumb sheep. They follow the leader. In any diatribe in the media against anyone on any matter, you invariably see or hear ‘tagging.’ Rightest/ leftist/ neo-con/ religious/ christian/ libertarian/ conservative or some other tag is used to describe the person being attacked. What this demonstrates to me, is that people are far more concerned with ‘towing the line’ of some philosophy, than thinking about ‘issues.’ If you are a ‘rightest,’ then I can discount any argument that you may provide. What it says about people, is that they can’t think for themselves. They just react to conditioning.

How much in royalties do book authors get paid?
by R.P. BenDedek
May 15, 2016

When you deal with ‘vanity publishers,’ also known as self-publishers, understand that they are fronts for a big corporate monopoly and be very wary of their contracts. You literally need to read and understand everything on their website before you sign a contract. When you buy an author’s book from someone other than the publishing house whose name appears in the book, you are effectively robbing the author of sixty percent of his royalty and in the process, filling the coffers of big businesses.

What the Women’s Movement Wants and What Women Do
by R.P. BenDedek
May 13, 2016

Women it seems should not be discriminated against but one must always keep in mind that the ‘special needs’ of women must be accommodated. So much for equality! Sometimes I think that if every woman in the world blindly followed the sociopathic feminists, and every man stepped back and let them have control over and therefore responsibility for simply everything in life, that many a woman would soon learn that living like a man is not all what feminists make it out to be.

Now as any ‘intelligent’ person knows, there is no ‘God,’ for we all come from some slimy critter that crawled out of the primordial soup. We are the products of Evolution! And what is the first law of evolution? Kill or be Killed! The strongest wins! The fittest survive! Now I don’t want to rain on anyone’s parade (like heck!) but I would point out something that is so obvious, that it is apparently oblivious to the ‘we love nature crowd,’ as it is also to the ‘we are just better looking monkeys’ crowd.

Don’t you just get tired of all those wankers running around accusing everyone of racism? If I say that I don’t like Muslims that makes me a racist! If I say that I don’t like Indian food that makes me a racist. If I say that I don’t like Obama that makes me a racist. If I say that I don’t like Clinton that proves I am sane but if I say that I like Trump then I am an anti-American racist supporter of apartheid.

Is it racist to say that there are some things about ‘ethnic’ culture that you don’t want to take hold in ‘your’ country? It is? Then you don’t mind female circumcision? You don’t mind spitting food onto your table or floor? You don’t mind ‘hocking’ at the dinner table. You don’t mind entertaining your husband’s boss but not being allowed to eat at the same table?

What it means to be Young and Chinese

May 2, 2016

That last section is hilarious and so Chinese. I keep telling people that no matter how western Chinese people may seem or behave, they are not culturally western people and their thinking is not western cultural thinking….You probably don’t know what she means so I will tell you. In China, grass is for looking at. It is not for smoking, walking on, sitting on, lounging on, or running on. To quote a wonderful photo I took in Wuhan many years ago: “No coming on the grass!”

‘Military Intelligence’ is an oxymoron, and secondly because ‘we’ don’t have the faintest idea of ‘what and how’ the terrorists think, and while none of us would like to see a ‘government controlled press’ such as we have here in China, where no more than 20% bad news can be published, our western ‘free’ press and democratic rights to public comments provide great fodder for the other side.

Reviewing My Opinionated Past (No. 1)

Anti-Vilification laws which were supposed to protect or at least provide redress to those who have been abused or attacked on the basis of their ‘difference,’ are constantly used to punish ordinary people who exercise their democratic right to freedome of thought, opinion and speech.

Useful Idiots and Islam
by R.P. BenDedek
March 27, 2016

I do not hate or fear Muslims. They are people. They have a right to their religion, but what the useful idiots do not see, is that Islam is manifested in two entirely different ways, and it is only the one and not the other, that the U.I. can see. The first way in which Islam is manifested, is as a religion. The second way in which it is manifested, is as a political power.

I will help you promote your book by providing a “No Charge – No Pay” service. I invite authors who are capable of writing a ‘stand-alone’ article (to write something that readership might find interesting.

Being Gay is Genetic Right?
by R.P. Bendedek
Feb 20, 2016

In this report is it claimed that scientists have now discovered that people with Neanderthal ancestry (and God only knows how often I have been called a Neanderthal by the PC witches), can suffer from a genetically related addiction to nicotine, and a greater risk of depression. Now it stands to reason that if Gays get a free pass because ‘they can’t help themselves, it’s all in their genes,’ then I too can’t help myself. I need a cigarette from time to time

2nd Amendment Rights and Violent Women
by R.P. BenDedek
Feb 20, 2016

I’m not American and so I am in no position to be telling Americans what they ought and ought not to be doing, but I can’t help but wonder about the greatest arms nation on earth which, despite its Second Amendment, is seeking to take away the constitutional rights of his citizens. The anti-gun lobby would have you believe that there is no other way to kill, maim and murder other than by using guns and so if we get rid of guns then there will be no crazed gunmen and no senseless deaths. Sorry folks! Guns are not allowed in China but that doesn’t stop people committing acts of terror and murder!

R.P. BenDedek Book Review: ‘The Moral Vacuum’ by Martyn Gabe
Feb 19, 2016

Martyn Gabe’s book ‘The Moral Vacuum’ is a bold, audacious, pointed, accusatory, well researched and up-front perceptive of the totalitarian manipulation of western society by that incestuous ‘ménage-a-trois,’ Big Business, Government and Media. I loved it after eight pages

R.P. BenDedek Review: “The Art of Thinking Clearly” by Rolf Dobelli
Feb 19, 2016

I would have to guess and say that my favorite section was No. 99 “Why you shouldn’t read the news,” but then again I seem to recall that there was a section which told me that I would naturally be influenced by the last section of any reading material. I can’t remember. The book provides so much instruction and advice on the myriad of ways that our minds and emotions work and how they lead us into making unwise decisions.

I loved a sunburnt country,
a land with little rain,
where everything is now PC
and people complain, complain, complain.

Visiting Mei Li Geng and the Grasslands in Inner Mongolia 2015
by R.P. BenDedek
Jan 20, 2016

Eventually we piled in the bus and headed back to civilization. The Chinese guests did what all Chinese do on trips – they fell asleep. On our way back to Baotou via the airport at Dong He from whence the paying tourists were departing by air for Suzhou, we stopped for gas. Taking the opportunity, I headed off for the public restroom where I hoped to do two things. The first you can guess at and the second was to have a cigarette. One of the other tourists decided to follow me and entered about 30 seconds after me. As he walked in (and this guy could not speak any English), the guy loudly exclaimed in English: “Holy shit!” And that just about sums up for you what many a public toilet in China is really like.

Anne Marie Waters’ letter to Feminists (A Must Read)
by R.P. BenDedek
January 13, 2016

I sincerely hope that at least some left-wing feminists wake up in 2016, and realise the enormity of the damage they are causing. I hope too that they grow up and stop focusing on ridiculous trivialities and realise just what danger they’re in. It’s time for the harsh realities feminists. Women’s rights, actual civil rights, are in trouble in Europe. This is important and feminists are going to have to step up. But you don’t. Instead, you attack those of us who do. Shame on you.
