Buffalo Tom with Taillights Fade. From the 1992 album Let me come over.

No hit in the States apparently, but they did play it regularly on Studio Brussel in the early nineties. Buffalo Tom celebrates 30 years this year: they formed in 1986 in Boston, MA. The name is derived from sixties band Buffalo Springfield and the first name of the drummer, Tom Maginnis.

Carly Simon with the beautiful ballad It's hard to be tender (1989). It's the title song of the television series Sins.

Singer/songwriter from NYC. She's a daughter of Richard Simon, one of the founders of the publishing house Simon and Schuster.

Watch a muslim class walking through Bolton, UK, yelling "Allahu Akbar":

Future murderers, beheaders, and breeding chickens for jihad. Courtesy Liblabcon, but Labour especially, of course.

And while we get here a glimpse of Britain's unhealthy future, we get another stark reminder of the intrusions of this vile "religion" in UK politics with the victory of Sadiq Khan in the contest to become Mayor of London. Below you see a photo of him holding a placard with one of his stated goals - importing even more electoral cattle:

Khan likes to profile himself as a "moderate" muslim and he has reportedly even backed gay marriage.

But as this Daily Mail article proves, there's a lot to worry about in his curriculum:

"The politician has apparently made nine appearances alongside Sulaiman Ghani, a radical cleric who said was a supporter of ISIS and believes homosexuality is 'unnatural'.

MailOnline also revealed this year that in 2009 he supported groups promoting Islamic extremism and gave a speech while the 'black flag of jihad' was openly flying in the hands of children.


But Mr Khan's former brother-in-law, Makbool Javaid, preached hatred against non-Muslims at a rally in Trafalgar Square – with the 'black flag of jihad' flying behind him.

And he suspended his Commons-based speechwriter after he laughed about seeing homosexuals being abused in public, and made reference to 'hoes' and 'f***ing f****ts' – on a Twitter feed followed by the Labour mayoral hopeful.

Shueb Salar, who has represented Mr Khan at public events, continued to post them after he started working for Mr Khan in the run-up to last year's General Election.

Among the messages Mr Salar posted on Twitter was 'advice to anyone who's looking to murder their girlfriend and get away with it LOL'."

London is 40 per cent foreigners (and 40 per cent of the country's muslims live in London). It is clear that Khan was elected not so much because of administrative qualifications, but because he was both non-white and a muslim.

The election of Sadiq Khan can be seen as the definitive start of the 'Go after Whitey' campaign. A mere twenty years from now - if that long - increasingly, whites will be treated in their own cities and countries as second rank citizens.

Winston Churchill is turning in his grave.

I don't know how they did it but a small band of Belgian aviation enthusiasts, who organized themselves in the non-profit The Vintage Dream Factory, was able to acquire the Scat VII, a P-51 Mustang flown by legendary triple ace Colonel Robin Olds. They rebuilt the famous fighter as a two-seater and are now offering paid flights from Deurne Airport, near Antwerp.

At the start of the non-profits' operations, Col. Olds' daughter, Christina Olds, was present:

And a BIG thumbs-up for our Air Force which, in a time of severe budget cuts, was willing to honor Col. Olds and his famous mount by providing a wingman in an F-16!

I have always tremendously appreciated and liked the P-51's manifold qualities, be it it's prowess as an air supremacy fighter, it's amazing radius of action, it's impressive armament, and it's sleek design. I understand there's to this day heated arguments as to which was the best WWII figher, and on the American side there's apparently still a contest going on between the P-51 and the P-47, with adamant supporters - and good arguments - for both. As for me - I'm definitely a Mustang guy.

More info later. Hopefully time will allow me to provide some background on Colonel Olds too, a legend in his own right. Time time time... always lacking time.

Over at The Gatestone Institute, a brilliant article by Giulio Meotti, "The Great Western Retreat".

"... On March 11, 2004, 192 people were killed and 1,400 wounded in a series of terrorist attacks in Madrid. Three days later, Spain's Socialist leader, José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero, was elected prime minister. Just 24 hours after being sworn in, Zapatero ordered Spanish troops to leave Iraq "as soon as possible."

The directive was a monumental political victory for extremist Islam. Since then, Europe's boots on the ground have not been dispatched outside Europe to fight jihadism; instead, they have been deployed inside the European countries to protect monuments and civilians.

"Opération Sentinelle" is the first new large-scale military operation within France. The army is now protecting synagogues, art galleries, schools, newspapers, public offices and underground stations. Of all French soldiers currently engaged in military operations, half of them are deployed inside France. And half of those are assigned to protect 717 Jewish schools. Meanwhile, French paralysis before ISIS is immortalized by the image of police running away from the office of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo during the massacre there.

You can find the same figure in Italy: 11,000 Italian soldiers are currently engaged in military operations and more than half of them are used in operation "Safe Streets," which, as its name reveals, keeps Italy's cities safe. Italy's army is also busy providing aid to migrants crossing the Mediterranean.

In 2003, Italy was one of the very few countries, along with Spain and Britain, which stood with the United States in its noble war in Iraq -- a war that was successful until the infamous US pull-out on December 18, 2011.

Today, Italy, like Spain, runs away from its responsibility in the war against the Islamic State. Italy's Defense Minister Roberta Pinotti ruled out the idea of Italy taking part in action against ISIS, after EU defense ministers unanimously backed a French request for help.

Italy's soldiers, stationed in front of my newspaper's office in Rome, provide a semblance of security, but the fact that half of Italy's soldiers are engaged in domestic security, and not in offensive military strikes, should give us pause. These numbers shed a light not only on Europe's internal terror frontlines, from the French banlieues to "Londonistan." These numbers also shed light on the great Western retreat.

US President Barack Obama has boasted that as part of his legacy, he has withdrawn American military forces from the Middle East. His shameful departure from Iraq has been the main reason that the Islamic State rose to power -- and the reason Obama postponed a military withdrawal from Afghanistan. This US retreat can only be compared to the fall of Saigon, with the picture of a helicopter evacuating the U.S. embassy.

In Europe, armies are no longer even ready for war. The German army is now useless, and Germany spends only 1.2% of GDP on defense. The German army today has the lowest number of staff at any time in its history.

In 2012, Germany's highest court, breaking a 67-year-old taboo against using the military within Germany's borders, allowed the military to be deployed in domestic operations. The post-Hitler nation's fear that the army could develop again into a state-within-a-state that might impede democracy has paralyzed Europe's largest and wealthiest country. Last January, it was revealed that German air force reconnaissance jets cannot even fly at night.

Many European states slumber in the same condition as Belgium, with its failed security apparatus. A senior U.S. intelligence officer even recently likened the Belgian security forces to "children." And Sweden's commander-in-chief, Sverker Göranson, said his country could only fend off an invasion for a maximum of one week.

During the past ten years, the United Kingdom has also increasingly been seen by its allies -- both in the US and in Europe -- as a power in retreat, focusing only on its domestic agenda. The British have become increasingly insular - a littler England.

The UK's armed forces have been downsized; the army alone is expected to shrink from 102,000 soldiers in 2010 to 82,000 by 2020 - its smallest size since the Napoleonic wars. The former head of the Royal Navy, Admiral Nigel Essenigh, has spoken of "uncomfortable similarities" between the UK's defenses now and those in the early 1930s, during the rise of Nazi Germany.

Brussels last Sunday, May 1, 2016, not far from the Brouckère Square. We ... had wanted to visit the Royal Greenhouses at Laeken, but at the entrance they turned us down because it was 3.10pm already and there were too many people waiting there to get in. Normally that in itself is not a problem, only this year, the guard at the entrance said, the rate at which they could let people through was much slower because everybody had to be checked - courtesy the muslim terrorist threat. So we, quite upset, to the city centre, to fetch us some good books in the Waterstones Brussels. A short distance before the Waterstones, we noticed two troopers patrolling the street (notice the "W" sign right between the troopers, a little higher than their heads). I am a very pro-army guy, but this just isn't normal. It only goes to show that the more muslims you let enter your country, the more you are apt to see scenes like this - because you also import the pathologies invariably inherent in muslim societies.

In Canada, military bases are now being used to host migrants from Middle East. Justin Trudeau, the new Canadian prime minister, first halted military strikes against ISIS, then refused to join the coalition against it. Terrorism has apparently never been a priority for Trudeau -- not like "gender equality," global warming, euthanasia and injustices committed against Canada's natives.

The bigger question is: Why does anyone choose to fight in a war? Civilized nations go to war so that members of today's generation may sacrifice themselves to protect future generations. But if there are no future generations, there is no reason whatever for today's young men to die in war. It is "demography, stupid."

Spain's fertility has fallen the most -- the lowest in Western Europe over twenty years and the most extreme demographic spiral observed anywhere. Similarly, fewer babies were born in Italy in 2015 than in any year since the state was founded 154 years ago. For the first time in three decades, Italy's population shrank. Germany, likewise, is experiencing a demographic suicide.

This massive deployment of armed forces in our own cities is a departure from history. It is a moral disarmament, before a military one. It is Europe's new Weimar moment, from the name of the first German Republic that was dramatically dismantled by the rise of Nazism. The Weimar Republic still represents a cultural muddle, a masterpiece of unarmed democracy devoted to a mutilated pacifism, a mixture of naïve cultural, political reformism and the first highly developed welfare state.

According to the historian Walter Laqueur, Weimar was the first case of the "life and death of a permissive society." Will Europe's new Weimar also be brought down, this time by Islamists?"

Food for thought.

Last week, I had a small post lamenting the islamic intrusions in French Catholic schools.

I am used to quite some lunacy over here in Europe, but I admit I was more than a little taken aback this morning when I read that in Flanders, Belgium's Dutch-speaking north, things are actually set to become far worse. These are no 'intrusions'. These are invitations.

Via Het Laatste Nieuws Online:

 photo insanity_catholic_education_2016_zps3byrx14v.jpg

Read this and cry:

"The Catholic Education works on a school model wherein other religions and philosophies will get a much larger role. This means that muslims and people of other faiths, on schools where they constitute a large number, will get their own places [of worship].

There will be more tolerance for religious symbols like the headscarf, possibly special rooms to pray near the catholic chapel, and islamic lessons or trips as a voluntary out of school activity.

"It's an ambitious project, but studies show that our identity is completely watering down if we do nothing. We offer our schools a mirror to set the next step", says top honcho for Flemish Catholic Schools Lieven Boeve.

Guimard Street [so called because it's the turf of the main leading institutions and organizations of catholic education in Flanders - MFBB] wants to use the model of the "dialogue" school to attract more muslim students, but also to reinforce catholic identity. "It is no longer the intention to persuade muslims or people of other faiths to our own great truths", posits co-founder of the Dialogue Schools Didier Pollefeyt (Catholic University of Leuven). "We want to make muslims, people of other faiths and ourself feel stronger. We are not going to mix religions, but in a Dialogue School there will be, apart from a Christian chapel, also a space for muslims to pray, there will be place for the headscarf".

My oh my what gobbledegook. This is by far the most lunatic mission I have seen catholic schools embark upon in my life.

Some debunking is in order, although I feel I a bulldozer would be preferable over a keyboard:

a.) "This means that muslims and people of other faiths, on schools where they constitute a large number, will get their own places [of worship]"

This is a ridiculous spin to make it look like it's not especially aimed at accommodating muslims. In the Belgian school network, there are basically only two religions present "in large numbers". Christianity and islam. Christianity is declining sharply. Islam is on the ascendance. In Antwerp, 52 per cent of students in basic and high school are no longer autochton. The truly overwhelming majority of these 52 per cent are... muslim. There may be a scattering of Hindu students in some schools (also in Brussels) or the token Buddhist, but that's about it. And Jews as a whole number a paltry 20,000 on a Belgian population of 11 million. Ergo, those who issue this communique should have the honesty to call this initiative what it is: yet another kneefall for islam.

b.) "There will be more tolerance for religious symbols like the headscarf, possibly special rooms to pray near the catholic chapel, and islamic lessons or trips as a voluntary out of school activity."

The result will merely be an acceleration of segregation, and even more psychological pressure on the dwindling number of female muslims students who do not don the hijab yet to follow the example of the zealots.

c.) "It's an ambitious project, but studies show that our identity is completely watering down if we do nothing."

Who's responsible for these "studies"? The Centre for Equal Opportunities and Combating Racism [CGKR, now rebaptized Unia - MFBB]? OF COURSE the identity of Catholic Schools is watering down, if you do not even believe what you stand for. If teachers are ASHAMED to cast a cross before class. If Christian religion teachers admit they do not consider themselves Christian anymore. This is basically the equivalent of a guy floating in a life jacket in the middle of the ocean who, upon discovering his jacket is leaking, decides that the best strategy to counter the problem is to merrily punch another hole in it!

c.) "Guimard Street wants to use the model of the "dialogue" school to attract more muslim students, but also to reinforce catholic identity."

Muslim students are coming anyway, what with the truly catastrophic fertility rate among autochtons. As for the "Dialogue School" reinforcing Catholic Identity, I just wonder, is the author of that concept perhaps the guy from the local funny farm who walks around with a paper hat and his right hand tucked in his vest, proclaiming he is Napoleon? Because this laughable excuse of an "idea" boils down to Catholic Schools reinforcing their identity... by expressing LESS of their identity!!! This is like preparing yourself for a math exam by studying sociology. Or announcing you are going to increase the appeal of your golf school by offering courses in knitting.

d.) "We are not going to mix religions, but in a Dialogue School there will be, apart from a Christian chapel, also a space for muslims to pray, there will be place for the headscarf"."

Given the very obvious tolerance of muslims for other faiths, it can be safely assumed that fifteen years from now, that "catholic chapel" next to the islamic prayer room will be used as a place to stock automatic weapons and explosives, and the Catholic School itself will have become a madrassah.

We have met the mastermind of this insane plan, Lieven Boeve, before. In March 2014, I had a post dealing with the decision - just as idiotic - of the Catholic University of Louvain to offer a chair "Islamic Theology". You can find that post here.

Lieven Boeve is the guy - although it would be far more correct to refer to him as eunuch - to the left.

Back then, I labeled him a quisling already.

Turns out, I could not have been more right.


PS: Vlaams Belang has as always shown true grit and a fitting lightning quick reaction: you can visit this ad hoc site, protest by sending a mail to that lunatic, and in the same breath ask that he resign. Which I did. Twice today, actually. Before I used that site, I asked him directly by mail. Although I don't suppose he will listen. Kind of difficult with ears and a brain full of shit.
