CLICHY, FRANCE: MUSLIMS AGAIN CHALLENGING CITY COUNCIL WITH ILLEGAL STREET PRAYERS.

Via François Desouche. Confronted with the increasing occurence of illegal street prayers by the town's muslim community, leading to serious traffic problems as well as dangerous situations, the Clichy town council decided to put up a banner over Jean Jaurès Avenue with the inscription: "STOP ILLEGAL STREET PRAYERS - FOR THE RESPECT FOR EVERYBODY, THE RULE OF LAW, FOR ANYONE'S PEACE OF MIND" (translation from «Stop aux prières de rue illégales – Pour le respect de tous, pour l’État de droit, pour la tranquillité de chacun«).





The reaction of Clichy's sympathetic muslim community was not long in the making:





Illegal street prayers IN FRONT OF THE TOWN HALL. You can see how much respect muslims have for our laws, and in France they represent "only" ten per cent of the population - or so the authorities would like us to believe.

Imagine a France with 35 or 40 per cent muslims.

There will come a time where only hot lead and cold steel will remain as the sole means to save Europe.

RECOMMENDED READS: WILLIAM KILPATRICK ON THE WEST LOSING THE CULTURAL BATTLE.

Excellent article by William Kilpatrick at Crisis Magazine



"Submission. That’s what the word “Islam” means. Muslims must submit to Allah, and the rest of the world must eventually submit to Islam. Submission does not necessarily require conversion, but it does require that one acknowledge the superiority of Islam, pay the jizya tax, and, in general, keep one’s head down.

Europe is currently in the process of submitting to Islam, and America also seems destined to eventually submit. If you have young children or grandchildren, it’s likely that they will have to adapt at some point to living in a Muslim-dominated society. It won’t necessarily be a Muslim-majority society because, as history testifies, Muslims don’t need a majority in order to successfully take control of non-Muslim societies...





A book on western women converting to islam. Judging by the use of the word "gender" we can safely conlude that the author, Karin Van Nieuwkerk, is another feminist moonbat. Ah yes, pissy patoot western women converting to islam! Exactly what feeble minded, ignorant cunts who devoted their lives to make western males' lives miserable would do, after wondering where all the men have gone.




... If and when Islam persuades America to submit, it most probably won’t be through force of arms. The civilizational struggle in which we are now engaged is primarily a culture war. America used to be good at cultural warfare because America once had cultural confidence. The Cold War was in large part a cultural war, and America won it because it didn’t have qualms about demonstrating the superiority of the American way to the Soviet way.

But times change. These days, may Americans would rather shred their culture than spread it. Cultural shame rather than cultural pride rules the day. And, not surprisingly, people who are ashamed of their culture can’t be counted on to defend it. Those who are anxious to pull down statues of Washington, Jefferson, and Columbus are unlikely to put up much resistance to Islam’s cultural aggression. Instead, they will be disposed to facilitate it.

Islam, on the other hand, is full of new-found cultural pride. After the defeat of the Russians in Afghanistan, the overthrow of the Shah in Iran, and the toppling of the Twin Towers, Muslims could once again believe that Allah had destined them to subjugate the world to Islam. At the same time that Americans began to doubt their own cultural heritage, Islam undertook a remarkable campaign to export its ideology to the rest of the world. Enabled by massive oil revenues, Saudi Arabia and other Gulf States funded the building of mosques and madrassas all over the world. While America was investing heavily in new weapons systems, the Gulf States were placing their bets on a weaponized religious system.

And there’s the rub. Buoyed by the initial successes in Iraq and Afghanistan, Americans began to think of the war against jihad as primarily a military affair. In the process of defeating the enemy on the battlefield, we lost sight of the cultural side of the struggle. But Islamists stayed focused on the larger picture. While we were winning the armed battles in Afghanistan and Iraq, the cultural jihadists were winning battle after battle on the culture front.

Indeed, most of the Islamist victories came without a struggle. Key cultural institution in the West simply acquiesced to whatever it was that the Islamists wanted. Hijabs in the workplace? Diversity demands it. Prayer breaks for Muslim employees? Well, no more than five a day. Islam-friendly curriculums in K-through grad-school? Think of it as affirmative action for years of neglect. More Muslim immigrants? It would be against our values to say no."





In mid-August I went cycling with my daughter in and around Maasmechelen, in the eastern Belgian province of Limburg. We climbed one of the terrills there, huge piles of rubble, the legacy of coal mining in the region. From on top of one of the terrills there, Maasmechelen lay at our feet. And lookie look there, a bit to the left of the Saint Barbara church: the minaret of the tevhid mosque. I had looked forward to seeing this part of Limburg. The sight of that missile-like minaret more or less ruined the moment.


.....


"One way of grasping the vulnerability of our society to Islamization is to ask “Who’s going to stop it?” Where, exactly, are the forces of resistance?

The university? American universities are bastions of political correctness and mandatory tolerance. Most of them are already quite sympathetic to the Islamic point of view. A combination of intimidation (from both Muslim and leftist groups), Saudi money, and multicultural ideology has ensured that when push comes to shove, the universities will line up with the Islamist camp. If present trends continue, American universities will fold to Islam just as German universities once folded to the Nazis.

The media? The media is still trying to find a motive for the 9-11 attack. That’s because it still won’t make the connection between Islamic terror and Islamic belief. In general, media people see it as their duty to put the best possible face on all things Islamic. Scratch the media as a source of resistance.

The Church? As with college administrators, many Church leaders are deeply mired in multicultural ideology. They are constantly on the lookout for offenses against the “other.” Accordingly, American bishops seem to think that “Islamophobia” poses a grave threat to society. Many of them seem more concerned about anti-Muslim bigotry than about the victims of Islamic terror. To prove that they themselves are not “Islamophobes,” the USCCB operates one of the largest programs for resettling refugees from Muslim countries into the U.S. Besides facilitating Muslim migration, American, as well as European bishops, have facilitated the migration of Islamic beliefs. On numerous occasions, prominent clergy have pronounced these beliefs to be benign and peaceful, and thus deserving of a warm welcome. In general, Church leaders see themselves as friends and protectors of Islam. Given their current mindset, the bishops are unlikely to recognize an Islamic cultural putsch, let alone resist it.

Big Business? Corporations also qualify as cultural institutions. Much of our understanding of what is culturally acceptable and unacceptable is picked up in the workplace. This can be a good thing and often was in the past. Unfortunately, many corporations now reflect and magnify some of the worst cultural trends: arbitrary speech codes, draconian diversity policies, transgenderism, and the like. Currently, several large corporations are using their leverage to suppress speech that is critical of Islam. Giant companies such as PayPal, Google, Facebook, and Twitter are actively trying to shut down websites and individuals that provide accurate information about Islamic cultural jihad. The media monopolies are playing the role that the Ministry of Truth played in Orwell’s 1984. All the really useful information about Islam that has been painfully accumulated in recent years is being quietly dropped down the memory hole.

Why are the counter-jihad sites being shut down? Because they supposedly are “intolerant” and “racist.” Here we come back to the “old-war” mentality. The corporations, the schools, the churches, and the media are ready to do battle with racists, sexists, homophobes, Islamophobes, and transgenderphobes, but they lack the mindset that would allow them to resist the long march through the institutions being conducted by determined and skillful cultural jihadists. In short, their energies are focused on evils that have long been in retreat or on non-existent evils (transgenderphobia, etc.). Meanwhile, the much larger threat posed by Islam draws ever closer."

15 SEPTEMBER 1950: THE LANDINGS AT INCHON, KOREA.

It was called Operation Chromite, and in the blink of an eye, the landings changed the fortunes of the South Koreans and their allies. Last year, the South Koreans made a movie about it:





Apparently, the West does not have the monoply on leftist moonbats, as we learn from this article by Michael Fahy over at American Thinker:



"Crackling radio reports early on September 15, 1950 picked up via staticky shortwave radio told Americans of the unexpected, unbelievably high-risk Invasion of Inchon by our armed forces, led by five-star general Douglas MacArthur. That turnaround in the Korean War was the best life-saving military news since five years past, when two A-bombs ended World War II.

In the months before Inchon, American Marines and soldiers had been electrocuted on barbwire, tortured, and pushed south to land's end by the evil forces of Communist North Korea. All but a tiny foothold of South Korea had fallen to the enemy. After winning a war fought on six continents and seven seas, America was being humiliated on that small Korean peninsula. That world in which Americans lived changed on the day of MacArthur's highly successful invasion.

The brilliantly conceived Invasion of Inchon by MacArthur 67 years ago is considered one of the greatest operations in military history. Seoul was liberated ten days after MacArthur's landing and is now among the world's leading cities. The vibrant economy built by free South Koreans would not exist if MacArthur's Inchon invasion had failed."

....


"Today, Douglas MacArthur's bronze statue, ten feet tall atop an 18-foot base, stands high above the invasion site in Inchon's Freedom Park. Statues of men are erected to show gratitude for accomplishments and courageous achievements. In a larger sense, we build statues to leave for posterity so that our great, great grandchildren will forever know of this man, his deed, and this time in which we have lived.

If today you are a college student, your grandfather will tell you that South Korea is free and prosperous because Douglas MacArthur, his officers, and his men saved South Korea from the malignant communism that still enslaves the people's cousins in North Korea. But your professor will tell you that the MacArthur statue at Inchon must be torn down by a mob because Douglas MacArthur was a war criminal who prevented the "peaceful" reunification of North Korea with South Korea. "His statue is a symbol of war. It must be torn down," says Lee Kwang-ho, assistant director-general of the Inchon Sociality for Peace and Participation. A police guard protects the MacArthur statue from professors and their students, organized by the Korean Teachers and Education Workers Union and the Korean Confederation of Trade Unions. The most violent of several attempts to topple the tall statue failed when thousands of Inchon residents and police protected the monument in 2005."

SATURDAY NIGHT WIM MERTENS, HANS ZIMMER.

First Wim Mertens with Struggle for Pleasure. From the soundtrack of the 1987 movie The Belly of an Architect.





Wim Mertens is a Belgian/Flemish composer, pianist, guitarist and musicologist, who did the soundtrack for this film drama by Peter Greenaway. In The Belly of an Architect, Brian Dennehy - who I first got to know as the ruthless sheriff in the 1982 Rambo: First Blood movie - plays Stourley Kracklite, an architect whose physical decline throughout the movie is a metaphor for the gradually diminishing stature of an 18th century visionary French architect by the name of Etienne-Louis Boullée. Very few of Boullées low-key designs have survived to this day, and none of his grandiose, even megalomaniac projects were actually built. But both in his own times and in the twentieth century, when he was rediscovered, he exerted a considerable influence.



Hans Zimmer with Supermarine, from the soundtrack of this year's blockbuster movie Dunkirk, but applied to shots from the epic 1969 movie The Battle of Britain, starring a.o. Michael Caine.





After The Dark Knight, Inception, and Interstellar, another fruitful collaboration between two immensely gifted professionals.


Goede nacht. For those living in the area to be visited by Irma - or those living in other areas afflicted by atrocious weather, think Nepal, India, or Sierra Leone - I can only offer my prayers. Stay strong.

RECOMMENDED READS: MARK STEYN'S "DREAMS, DELUSIONS AND DUPLICITY".

Best read on why DACA should be repealed comes imho from, who else, Mark Steyn:


"Readers will know I strongly dislike the contemporary habit of acronymic legislation: The "DREAM Act" is, more precisely, the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act. The Tea Act that so excited His Majesty's subjects in British North America was, in fact, called "An act to allow a drawback of the duties of customs on the exportation of tea or oil to any of his Majesty's colonies or plantations in America; to increase the deposit on bohea tea to be sold at the East India Company's sales; and to empower the Commissioners of the Treasury to grant licenses to the East India Company to export tea duty-free". If only Lord North had thought to call it the TASTY Act (Telling Americans we're Still Taxing You), the whole unpleasantness of the Boston Tea Party and subsequent events might have been avoided.

But the DREAM Act is not merely an example of fatuous aconyms. It also demonstrates the larger point I've made over the years - of how culture trumps politics. The DREAM Act bombed as politics, but the stupid name took hold in the culture - to whit:

DREAMers Like Me Have Flourished Under DACA. Trump Might Take It All Away

...and a zillion other headlines: "The Dreamers Are Ready to Fight President Trump." "This Dreamer Is Ready to Go to the Army. Will Trump Let Him?" "Congress, It's Up to You to Protect the Dreamers." Etc.

So we have gone from "illegal aliens" to "undocumented workers" to "Dreamers". And Republican voters wonder why they never win anything. Sixty years ago, the US Government was happy to call its "comprehensive immigration reform" plans "Operation Wetback", and President Eisenhower was willing to use the term in public. Now we expect jelly-spined finger-in-the-windy legislators to stand firm against "Dreamers". Yeah, right. As for Europe, if Chancellor Merkel and the EU start calling their legions of sturdy young Muslim "refugees" Dreamers, it's game over."






...


"Imagine one billion inhabitants [of the developing world], imagine they all move north.

I ran his math:

A billion man march, eh? The population of the developed world - North America, the European Union, Japan, Oz, NZ - is about a billion. Of the remaining six billion people around the planet, is it really so absurd to think that one-sixth of them would "move north" if they could?

As we had cause to reflect on Labor Day, no developed nation in the year 2017 needs mass immigration. To judge from the press coverage, the average DACA beneficiary is a twelve-year-old beatific moppet. In fact, Obama amnestied those aged 30 and under in 2012 - which means some of them are 36 now, which means (given that they're either undocumented or using fraudulent documents) some of these dreaming moppets are in their forties. No matter. Those who aren't telegenic infants are, we're assured, serving in the US Army or helping with Harvey relief. As Tucker Carlson scoffed last night, the proportion of Dreamers serving in the military is tiny. And as a statistic it might be more useful if we could compare it to the number of Dreamers serving in, say, MS-13...

Yet Orrin Hatch assures us that Dreamers have to be "of good character". And DACA supposedly requires that a Dreamer...

.. has not been convicted of a felony, significant misdemeanor, or three or more other misdemeanors, and do not otherwise pose a threat to national security or public safety."


...


"And, of course, the minute Dreamers become legal, chain migration will take care of the rest, including their parents, who broke the law in the first place - because, despite the assurances, no one will check that, either.

Nevertheless, in the eyes of the American people, and certainly their media, a Dreamer is a class valedictorian about to sign up for a tour in Afghanistan. So good luck to any Republican legislator minded to argue against that. Thus the power of a single word to frame the issue: "Illegal aliens" are lawbreakers who should face the consequences. But Dreamers are an identity group, like the transgendered or gays or African-Americans: it's as innate as biology or orientation; why blame them?

Perhaps the most depressing aspect of the last 24 hours is the way it has utterly upended the extraordinary events of summer 2015, when Donald Trump did something truly radical for a candidate of either party: He talked about the problem of immigration policy not from the perspective of the Dreamers but of those on the receiving end of their dreams. Back then, several members of the current Trump Administration were outraged by this. In an unprecedented move, Nikki Haley used the official Republican response to the State of the Union to attack not President Obama but candidate Trump and those foolish enough to "follow the siren call of the angriest voices". As I responded:


~ Unfortunately for her, this sentimentalist twaddle is not where the Republican base is. She's looking at immigration policy from the point of view of the seven billion hard-working soon-to-be-vetted Americans-in-waiting around the planet. But one of the changes this election season is that the party base is considering immigration policy from the point of view of the 300 million Americans who are already here.


That was the extraordinary transformation Donald Trump effected two summers ago. Now we're back to all the usual "sentimentalist twaddle" - "hard-working", "family values", "living in the shadows" and (from delusional Republicans) "natural conservatives".



"To be sure, Republicans are still prepared to criticize Obama for his chosen method of immigration "reform" - via executive order, or, as George III would have called it, Royal Proclamation. "We can't burn the Constitution just to do what you want," Sean Hannity told Jorge Ramos on Fox last night.

But why not? We're burning everything else, as one act of illegality leads on to another, and another: The unlawful entry of millions of unskilled immigrants has led to the unlawful corruption of state databases that implicitly accept the use of stolen Social Security numbers, and the unlawful issuance of drivers' licenses by multiple states to non-legal residents, and the unlawful creation of "sanctuary cities" premised on the nullification of US immigration law, and now even the proposed repeal by certain municipalities of the defining privilege of citizenship in free societies - by the introduction of voting rights for non-citizens. Why should the separation of powers be quaintly adhered to when nothing else is?"



...


"The left is quite explicit: Borders are fascist and racist, and thus the organizing principle of the world for the last four centuries - the nation state - is an illegitimate concept. The globalist establishment is not that upfront about it: they're more of the view, publicly, that the nation state is an obsolescent and increasingly irrelevant concept. This is, in fact, "burning the Constitution", and even the very concept of constitutions, and of the Peace of Westphalia - for the two most fundamental aspects of any state are borders and citizenship. If there are no borders, there are no citizens, only competing tribes of identity politics - like Dreamers. And, if , as his name surely suggests, a Dreamer trumps a citizen, and if anyone on the planet is a potential American, then American citizenship is objectively worthless."




At the end of the day, the very fact that there are such large numbers of 'DREAMers' in the country that's the vanguard of the developed world is in itself a sign that the developing countries have failed BIG TIME. I don't feel the slightest inclination to move to Nouakchott or Mogadishu or Sanaa because it SUCKS over there. I am happy to live here, in an as yet somehow democratic state and an environment that is the fruit of unfathomable blood sacrifices with an infrastructure and a heritage that are the result of an frenzied labor effort, technological excellence, and dedication. Sure enough, we have our fair share of lazybones and profiteers and it may, and I fear will, all go to bust in the foreseeable future, but for now "the centre is still somewhat holding."

Now, Europe is confronted by legions of people fleeing hellholes in Africa and the muslim world. The former have post-colonialism now had 60 years plus to get their house in order, and still there are very few hopeful signs from that continent. The latter have had 1,400 years and only those lucky enough to sit with their butts on oil function - somewhat.

The US is assailed by similar cohorts from Latin America. Take Mexico e.g., a dismally functioning country that has seen some 130,000 deaths over the past decade and still tries to pass itself off on the world stage as a 'normal' nation.

I'm sorry, but we in the developed world cannot be held responsible for other people's failures. We enjoy the fruits of our labor and the labor of untold generations before us. Civilizations who preferred to sit under trees and peel bananas have NO F*CKING RIGHT to be envious of OUR still functioning societies.

To import the Third World is to become the Third World.

It should be easy for the GOP to push DACA repeal through. But it's becoming more and more obvious that too many Republicans either simply don't want to win or else should join the democrats.

OUTRAGE: FAMOUS BELGIAN CHOCOLATIER GODIVA GOES COMPLETELY HALAL.

At age 52 I have become slightly annoyed when being reminded by foreign nationals that my country is only known for it's waffles, Brussels sprouts, TinTin, beer, moules et frites ... and chocolate. That image is a caricature, since all that stuff is not even in the top ten of Belgium's top export categories.

Be that as it may, there's no denying the fact that chocolate is one of those things that will inevitably be linked for eternity plus three days when mentioning our small kingdom at the North Sea. Top brands include Neuhaus, Côte d’Or, Jean Galler, Daskalidès, Leonidas, and ... Godiva.

It now appears that Godiva has gone full throttle for halal. Via Het Nieuwsblad:





"Belgian chocolate maker Godiva announced that it will no longer produce liquor pralines. In 2008 te concern was bought by the Turkish group Ülker.

Production of liquor-filled pralines was stopped in April of this year already. A spokesman for the group argued a "change of strategy" was needed.

In Walloon media the talk is that the purpose of this move is to accommodate an islamic public. "Our strategy is now to offer one and only one range to everybody", says a Godiva spokesman to Sudpresse. "Pralines with alcohol are only aimed at adults (...). We wish to offer our products in a universal manner to a public as broad as possible".

Godiva Chocolatier was founded in 1926 by Joseph Draps. He opened his first store near Brussels' Grote Markt [Grand Square, MFBB]. In 1967 the Campbell Soup Company acquired Godiva. These sold the Belgian company in turn to Turkish group Ülker in 2008."




What a load of steaming hogwash. "Pralines with alcohol are only aimed at adults". B-O-O-L. When I was a kid and there was some event or party (marriage, Xmas, New Year, an anniversary, you name it) there were ALWAYS scores of liquor-filled pralines on hand, and it was kids who ran away with most of them. "We wish to offer our products in a universal manner to a public as broad as possible". Yeah right cowards, and in order to do that you simply dispense with the alcohol to suit your muslim overlords! Cause you reckon the lame Fleming cannot even be bothered to get out of his chair to protest this umpteenth sign that islamization is proceeding not one step at a time but two, sorry, make that three.

Look, as a capitalist I cannot seriously take issue when a company decides to produce goods and stuff aimed at a particular segment of society. I have no business telling company X or company Y that they should cater to this or that segment of the market.

So if a muslim group acquires a Belgian company and scraps alcohol, so be it - alas, but that's how it is.

But for God's sake, PUH-LEEZE!!! DON'T try to sell this as a "strategy" to "offer a range appealing to as broad a public as possible." It's nonsense, it's a outright LIE, and it amounts to yet another muslim intrusion in a country where islam has no business.

Cause it ain't. It's yet another slap in our face by neo-ottomans. And judging by the following ad for stuff they've been offering for some time now, the decision to ban alcohol was but a matter of time:





It's a crying shame and a g*ddam nightmare. But if companies can choose to produce stuff and goods aimed at this or that subset of consumers, so too can consumers choose to not buy products from these or those manufactureres anymore. It's why I exhort my fellow countrymen and -women...

... to never ever buy Godiva anymore. Halal is for suckers.

SATURDAY NIGHT SMALL FACES, SKUNK ANANSIE.

Small Faces with Lazy Sunday. Released as a single in 1968.





English mod rock band from East London, founded in 1965 by Steve Marriott, Ronnie Lane, Kenney Jones, and Jimmy Winston. One year later already the latter was replaced by Ian McLagan as keyboardist.



Fast forward twenty years with Skunk Anansie and Charity. From the 1995 album Paranoid and Sunburnt.





Skin looks like a nightmare and I'm not sure I'm gonna put this on my iPod, which is a polite way of saying I'm never gonna do it, but Charity is an essential mid-nineties UK rock sound (the band is generally not regarded as Britpop though). Yes I still got an iPod, prolly ten years old already. Say what you will about Apple products but I have no issues with their quality. Yet.



This post was entirely edited using a Raspberry Pi3 model B, which I bought some 8 months ago via Amazon. Its CPU is a 1.2 GHz 64-bit quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 superscalar processor. A superscalar CPU allows for some kind of instruction-level parallelism, which means that more than one instruction can be done per clock cycle, as opposed to what single (scalar) processors do. A superscalar processor dispatches multiple instructions to different execution units (on the processor).

My Raspberry Pi (actually only the Starter Kit model) came with a 16GB Class 10 MicroSD Card, which was preloaded with the Raspbian OS and NOOBS (New Out of Box Software). Setting it up was easy as pie. There's a simple browser called Epiphany, and Python, a programming language. There's two editors to edit and debug Python code, but when my first programme, edited in the most recent one, refused to work, it took a lot of cursing before it dawned upon me to try the simpler editor. And that did the trick.

The Pi 3 also has built-in WiFi as well as Bluetooth. The WiFi works great, but while Bluetooth pairing with my iPhone did succeed, I got the message (on the monitor I had hooked to the Raspberry) that 'this device has no services which can be used with Raspberry Pi'. Duh.

Anyway, slaap wel. Thx for tuning in.

NOTTING HILL CARNIVAL, LONDON: MUSLIM THUGS FORCE MET POLICE TO FLEE.

Expect more and more of this:





More info from Liberty GB:

"... According to Ken Marsh, Chairman of the Metropolitan Police Federation, the Notting Hill Carnival should not be allowed "to carry on regardless" after 31 officers were injured during the latest two-day event.

He said officers had blood spat on them, were splashed with a "potentially acidic substance" and had bottles and other objects thrown at them.

He accused the force of treating the statistics on injuries to officers as "almost a matter of fact. As if this is the norm. As if this is acceptable. It is none of the above. It is a disgrace. ... They have families, they have homes to go to. This is not normal. This is not acceptable."



You bet it's not acceptable. But keep voting Liblabcon and avoiding JIM acronyms, my dear inhabitant of Small Britain.

Hmmm. A potentially acidic substance... I recall images from earlier this week of busty girls at the carnival, who would have been sprayed with a 'potentially acidic substance'. Punishment for showing too much flesh?




Guess so. And that's how it goes. That's how the followers of the prophet give subtle hints to stay away next time, lest their sensitivities are hurt by décolletés. I suspect that in 2018, the "potentially acidic substance" will be a bit more HCl and a bit less H2O. And the year after, etc...

CRYBABY OF THE DAY: JEN PSAKI.

CNN'S Jen Psaki has drunk not only the Obama Kool Aid but the Obama Vinegar as well:

"IT'S TOO SOON FOR TRUMP TO GO TO TEXAS"


"(CNN)Every helicopter supporting a Trump visit to Texas in response to Hurricane Harvey is a helicopter not picking survivors off rooftops.

As President Donald Trump faces the first crisis of his presidency (one that is not self-inflicted) he fortunately has a chief of staff, John Kelly, who knows how to deal with emergency response, and a well-respected FEMA director in Brock Long leading an agency that has rebuilt itself since 2005's Hurricane Katrina.

There will be many decisions ahead about resources and funding at the federal level that will have an actual impact on the recovery of Houston and the other affected communities. These will be far more important than the movements of Air Force One, but the President's decision to travel to Texas just days after the first wave of the storm hit is, at best, surprising.

It is particularly arresting after he credited the expected ratings boost from hurricane coverage with providing the right forum for his Friday night pardon of former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio. So there is reason to be skeptical about his motivation for the visit."




Psaki, Psaki? Oh yeah, one of Obummer's State Department spokespersons. What a coincidence she's with CNN now!!!

You will recognize her, it's the readhead:





So Trump was off to Texas too soon huh? OK. I get it. Better not get in the way of the relief effort. One year ago, Psaki's boss took the right approach to the catastrophic Louisiana floodings:





Except for Psaki's ilk, it's NEVER okay. You can bet that IF President Trump would NOT have been visiting Texas, she would have lambasted him for not doing so.


Liberals.... bah. Bunch of hypocrites.

Okay, expect photos again. I found shelter at Imageshack for a measly 19 bucks a year. Eat THAT, Photobucket! It's a scandal you dare to charge 400 US dollars a year. You're practically begging to go bankrupt.

Anyway, below a pic I took in the Steven Udvar Hazy Center. In the left upper corner you can make out the passageway which allows a peek inside the cockpit of Paul Tibbets' mount. However, just opposite it the passageway has transparent shields, which I suppose are for deterring vandals.





And here is a photo I took from precisely that passageway. To avoid reflections in the transparent shielding, I held my iPhone above it with outstretched arms, pressed the virtual button blindly, and hoped for the best. It turned out to be a decent pic:

More info on Defend Europe:





They act while we - that's me including, alas - whine and bicker. Not all of them have a spotless record, though. And the guy at the 1:24 mark is Martin Sellner, a key member of the Austrian Identitaeren Movement. I've been following him for some time now, and I found it indeed somewhat questionable that in 2009 he paid a visit to the grave of Walter Novotny, an Austrian Luftwaffe ace who was killed somewhere in NOV44 when his Me262 was downed by Mustangs, IIRC. In the great kaleidoscope of facts, anecdotes and decisions that people's lives often are, it's something... I can live with since it seems to have been a one-off incident. Also, Nowotny seems not to have been a nazi caricature. The widespread respect he still enjoys is probably an Austrian thing. If you call Sellner a nazi for visiting that grave, then I will show you transcripts of British fighter pilots (who flew Tempests or Typhoons or Spits, can't remember right away) who were actually sad upon learning of the death of Nowotny, whom they apparently considered a chivalrous adversary. Shall we call them nazis too? Or Ronald Reagan for visiting a German cemetery where, apart from Wehrmacht personnel, there was also Waffen SS buried?

Anyway, I'm mighty glad people like Sellner at least offer token resistance to the insane Population Replacement which is currently underway, with the full support of the EU.

BELGIAN SF IN TAL AFAR, NORTHERN IRAQ.

A rare instance of good use of our tax euros. Belgian Special Forces take up position on top of a building in Tal Afar as the Iraqi Army's operation to drive IS out of that town unfolds:











Via ABCNews:


Iraqi Forces said Wednesday they have captured two neighborhoods on the edge of the Islamic State-held town of Tal Afar.

Lt. Gen. Abdul-Amir Rasheed Yar Allah, who commands the operation, said special forces drove the militants from al-Kifah al-Janoubi on the southwestern edge of the town, and that federal police and paramilitary units took al-Kifah al-Shamali in the northwest.

Iraqi leaders often declare areas liberated when some fighting is still underway.

Last month, Iraq declared victory over IS in Mosul, the country's second largest city, after a grueling nine-month campaign. The Tal Afar operation began Sunday, and is aimed at driving IS from one of the last major pockets it controls in Iraq.

As in Mosul, the U.S.-led coalition is providing airstrikes as well as other forms of support to Iraqi troops, and U.S. and other special forces are operating near the front lines.

British Maj. Gen. Rupert Jones, the coalition's deputy commander, said Iraqi forces are off to a "really positive start" and are "closing the noose" around the militants.

"The key is that they've broken into the city," he told Pentagon reporters via videoconference from Baghdad.

The extremist group has lost most of the territory it seized when it swept across northern and central Iraq in the summer of 2014, and has also suffered major losses in Syria.

But the coalition estimates that the group still has some 2,000 fighters in Tal Afar and 2,500 in the Syrian city of Raqqa, where U.S.-backed Syrian forces are fighting the group.


So SecDef Vandeput really made good on his word, there are SF assisting the IA.

A couple of side notes:

a.) good that apparently a more appropriate camo has been issued, even if it's still a wood pattern in a desert environment, for the regular Belgian army camo would be totally out of place. Even though the pattern has its advocates, personally I have never been very fond, to say the least, about the typical jigsaw camo. You can see it in the video below.

b.) The guided missile system is the Israeli-made Rafael Spike-MR, of which the Belgian Army bought 66 systems for 41 million EUR in 2012. MR stands for, of course, medium range, and in Israel the system is dubbed as "Gil". The weight of the missile is 14 kg (30 lb 14 oz), and its minimum range is 200 m, while its maximum range is 2,500 m (1.6 mi). Given that IS has no armor save a couple of obsolete Russian tanks which by now have probably all been obliterated, the deployment of Spikes may seem overkill, but the missile is not only anti-tank as most articles accompanying these photos suggest, Spikes can also be used as anti-personnel weapons.

The following video shows Belgian troops testing the Spike for the first time in the NATO training area of Bergen-Hoehne, Germany.





In the Belgian Army and SF, the Spike replaces the old Milan systems.


c.) On top of that building there's also US troops from the 82nd Airborne, and their equipment provides an interesting study in contrast with the Belgian detachment's:





I guess that's a BGM-71 TOW. I'm a bit surprised these weapons are still in use, I thought that by now they had all been replaced by FGM-148 Javelins.

Video of that weapon:





d.) Belgian soldiers prefer to sit on concrete blocks, American soldiers apparently think they are on the beach.

RECOMMENDED VIDEO: WHY THE SWISS SHOULD STICK TO THEIR GUNS.

Switzerland has, for European standards, rather liberal gun laws, as citizens are permitted to freely purchase and own semi-automatic guns. The most reliable surveys suggest around a quarter of the population owns fire weapons. It should be noted however that a decade ago, that number was hovering around 100 per cent.

Even while privately owned guns in Switzerland seem to be on the way out, the EU wants to impose tighter gun controls on the Alpine country, because gun control is SO effective in combating crime and terrorism. While Switzerland is not part of the EU, it is a member of the Schengen Zone, so the EU does have some leverage.

This gentleman elaborates on a fascinating historical anecdote to make his point that Switzerland should NOT bow to EU Diktats:

TRUMP - KIM JONG-UN 1-0. NORK DICTATOR BACKS OFF FROM THREAT.

Via the Wall Street Journal:


NORTH KOREA BACKS OFF GUAM MISSILE-ATTACK THREAT

Kim Jong Un warns he could change his mind if the U.S. persists in ‘extremely dangerous reckless actions’

By Jonathan Cheng

Updated Aug. 14, 2017 9:36 p.m. ET

"SEOUL—North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has decided not to launch a threatened missile attack on Guam, Pyongyang’s state media reported on Tuesday, but warned that he could change his mind “if the Yankees persist in their extremely dangerous reckless actions.”





Voilà, that's how you deal with loons like Kim Jong-Un. The Prize for Ridiculous Twat of The Day goes to Angela Merkel, who a mere six days ago "ordered" Trump to "calm down" with his "rethoric". A spokesman for Merkel's Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel, a Mr Schaefer, was quoted as saying:


"The situation is really serious. Further sabre rattling will certainly not help us here." "We therefore call for moderation from all parties." "Diplomatic channels are the only way forward." ”This is the only way to mitigate the threat of the North Korean nuclear programme."



Nobody else but the German government should know better than that appeasement does-not-work. In the thirties, Winston Churchill was lambasted all over Europe, and especially in his own country, for his "inflammatory rhetoric" re the threat he rightly perceived in Nazi Germany. Churchill was considered the warmonger, and Herr Hitler even regarded as the civil one. Judging by MSM coverage and the reaction of Keith Ellison, who tought the NORK Lunatic-in-Chief acted 'more responsibly than Trump', l'histoire se répète...


Also, it should not be forgotten who got us in this mess in the first place:





THERE's a shining example of a moderate who successfully mitigated the threat of the North Korean nuclear programme. NOT.


Anyway, if you had not heard yet that Kim Jong-Un backed off with a load of poop dripping down over his ankles, blame bozos like Jimmy Fallon, who is still obsessing over President Trump's remarks re the Charlottesville riots.

ENTREPRENEUR OF THE DAY: MICHAEL DELL.

On hearing that another smug holier-than-thou know-it-all - Kevin Plank of Under Armour - left President Trump's American Manufacturing Council over the President's perceived weak message re the Charlottesville riots, I decided to check out WHO exactly is on that council and WHO has thus far demonstrated the most mature reaction to said riots.

It did not take me long to decide it was Michael Dell, founder, Chairman and CEO of Dell Technologies Inc.:




Via Business Insider, here's Dell Technologies statement:


Michael Dell, Dell Technologies, will remain on the council. "While we wouldn't comment on any member's personal decision, there's no change in Dell engaging with the Trump administration and governments around the world to share our perspective on policy issues that affect our company, customers, and employees," a spokeswoman said.



This is exactly how a responsible CEO should react. Reading down BI's list, I came across far too many CEO's who gave the impression that they drank too much of the multiculti diversity Kool Aid. Multiculturalism is another word for Orchestrated Western Demise. Only in the West is this vile ideology celebrated. Streets in Beijing and in Madras and in Harare look recognizably Chinese, Indian and African, and will continue to do so. Only the West is asked that it radically changes its appearance and character. CEO's representing powerful companies from a civilization that invented 99 per cent of the world's technologies, defined DNA, and put men on the Moon, should NOT subscribe to a hateful concoction of insane Frankfurter School witch doctors.

Diversity is, or should be, a state that is the result of an osmosis of the most competent ones in a company's 'fabric', NOT of a deliberate policy to meet minority quotas. The strength of companies (and by extension nations) should solely rely on merits. If a company or a society hires the most able applicants and it turns out the roster is overwhelmingly white, well, tough luck for Africans, Asians or Middle Easterners. They should go home and study hard to try again later. If that company turns out majority Black, so be it. If 90% is of Asian stock, ditto. It follows that diversity on the workfloor should be a condition, a state, that is uniquely the outcome of the competencies of the individuals vying for a job at that company. And if some groups are overrepresented, or if some would think that this or that group is underrepresented, then this must be accepted, and those who disagree should only resort on demonstrations of competency to alter the respective representation of their group.

IT'S OFFICIAL: YOUTUBE NOW A STASI COMPANY. PURGE AGAINST RIGHTWING COMMENTATORS.

Dutch pundit site Geenstijl reports:


"Google affiliate Youtube has tonight, and over the past few weeks, demonitized several channels and videos of popular rightwingsites.

This means that the makers will from now on not earn money anymore (or less) for certain videos they put online, because ads are removed and because advertizers are advised to no longer put pre-rolls with certain creators. Among the demonitizing victims we find Paul Joseph Watson (aka PrisonPlanet), who saw many videos being put 'kaltgestellt' (before he had been thrown off FB), Black Pigeion which lost 90 per cent of its income, and Luke Rudkowski (WeAreChange). Moreover, their videos are more difficult to find and they are no longer recommended. Last day all three of them made protest videos:"











Here's Mark Dice weighing in:





The Left's war on freedom of speech has a long, long history. Long before anti-racism laws, the bruhaha of unis cancelling speeches from conservative authors, the firings of Brendan Eich, Bill O'Reilly or James Damore, leftist regimes sought to suppress the voices of those not swallowing their worldview. That is not to say that rightwing regimes have sometimes not been doing just the same -
they did, but generally with far less bloodshed, plus only temporarily.

What we are witnessing is but a mere continuation of those policies, an affirmation of the generally accepted (among the left) modus operandi of silencing opponents, and umpteenth proof that leftists ARE_NOT-INTERESTED-IN-DEBATE. They only want you to shut up.

CHECKING OUT THE ISS WITH GOOGLE STREETVIEW.

Check out the International Space Station's interior using Google Streetview here.


 photo ISS_cupola_zpshu3kpoba.jpg


The cupola with its six huge viewing ports offers stunning sights on our home planet. You can see a venerable Soyuz spacecraft docked to the ISS.

A Soyuz docks. A SpaceX Dragon berths. There's a difference, it's got something to do with the docking manoeuvre being solely between the Space Station and the visiting spaceship (in this case the Soyuz), while for berthing the spaceship, in this case the Dragon, is 'grabbed' by the Canadarm2, its movement dampened, and put ever so cautiously on the berthing port. Since this is a relatively simple design, not using shock absorbers and all kinds of automated locks like a docking port, a berthing port can be bigger, hence bigger items can be brought into the ISS.

Canadarm2 is the further development of Canadarm1 which was used on the Space Shuttle. Canadarm2 was deployed first on STS-100 in April 2001, and has a length of 17.6 m (58 ft) when it's fully extended. It's got seven motorized joints (an 'elbow hinge' in the middle, 3 rotary joints at each of the 'wrist/shoulder' ends). Weighing 1,800 kg (4,000 lb), it has a diameter of 35 cm (14 in), and it is capable of handling huge payloads of up to 116,000 kg (256,000 lb). Most marvellous of all, it is self-relocatable and can move end-over-end to reach many parts of the Space Station in an inchworm-like movement, as long as there are dedicated anchor points (PDGF's, Power Data Grapple Fixtures).

DID YOU HEAR ABOUT NIGERIAN RIOTS IN DUBLIN, IRELAND? NO? I THOUGHT SO.

Our continent is going to hell in a handbasket.

Mind you, the events described date from JANUARY, but I missed them completely, courtesy the MSM which then, as now, was foaming at the mouth because of what happened on NOV 9, 2016.

Better late than never to bring this, for this is the fate that awaits Whites in Europe.


 photo ireland_2017_zpsm6ry013q.jpg



Over at Cambrian Dissenters, Daniel Thomas sheds some light on the issue:


"... It was patriotism and the overwhelming love of Ireland that drove the uprising against British rule but where is that patriotism now?

Why has the sovereignty for which Irish patriots sacrificed their lives been meekly surrendered to unelected foreign bureaucrats in Brussels especially when it was known that membership of the EU meant the destruction of the independent nation state of Ireland and the replacement of its culture and way of life with a so-call ‘multi-cultural society’?

The modern Irish are the antithesis of the previous generations who fought and died for Ireland. Overtly sensitive and wracked with political correctness they wouldn’t dream of picking up a rifle and fighting to regain their dignity and restore the independence of the Emerald Isle.

Men like James Connelly who was so badly wounded after the Easter Rising of 1916 he had to be strapped to a chair before he was put up against the wall of Kilmainham Gaol and shot.

Along with the thirteen other leaders of the uprising who were also executed, he would be rolling in his grave that the Ireland he sacrificed his life for is now a bankrupt third world backwater dictated to by foreign bureaucrats who could care less about Irish history or the wellbeing of the Irish people.

The archetypal Irishman is now represented by the drug addled Saint Bob Geldof who fled the Emerald Isle to live with the ancient enemy in England and his virtue signaling pal Bono whose incessant calls to open the borders to the hordes of economic migrants from Africa are as tedious as his records.

Hyphenation of nationalities is the means by which the global elite divide and rule communities and signal the end of the homogeneous nation state and its culture. It is also used to impress upon the subject people that they no longer exist as an exclusively indigenous entity in their own native land.

African-Irish is the phrase used to describe these rioting immigrants who are as much Irish as James Connolly is a Nigerian but nevertheless they are now recognized as bona fide Irish folk.

African-Irish join other such manufactured citizen groups as Pakistani-British and Somali-Americans etc. and by design this phony hyphenated system does not work in reverse for the simple reason that it’s only the Judeo-Christian countries from the developed world that are scheduled for ‘un-homogenising’.

This is the politically correct term for ethnic cleansing or cultural replacement preferred by the UN/EU elites as they construct their egalitarian, borderless one-world wet dream.

It is extremely unlikely one will read about white Irish-Africans rioting in Lagos or white British-Pakistanis rioting in Islamabad let alone white American-Somalis rioting in Mogadishu...."

SWEDEN WANTS TO ORGANIZE WOMEN-ONLY ROCK FESTIVAL.

Once again sorry for the light blogging, awful lot to do lately, business has been exceptionally tough this year. Yet here's a tidbit I wouldn't want to deny you. Via De Standaard, which is happy to report:


 photo zweden_ontkenning_2017_zps9igabmnt.jpg


"After the Swedish music festival Bråvalla quits after an epidemic of sexual violence against women, plans are being prepared to organize a women-only festival 'until men behave'.

'What do you (gals) think about organizing a very cool festival where only women are welcome until all men have learned how to behave themselves?' Swedish radio presenter and comedian Emma Knyckare posted this message on Twitter after it was announced that the well-known Swedish music festival Bråvalla would stop after cases of sexual harassment against women?"



Silly talk like that from a Swedish brainless twat reminds me of an Ann Coulter anecdote with which she perfectly nailed the PC dogmas nixing ethnic/religious profiling in airports. It went a bit like this:

Officials scrutinizing studiously the robes of an eighty year old quadriplegic nun while not batting an eye when suspiciously behaving Somali twentysomethings breeze by, are a bit like the drunk who's looking for his car keys on his hands and knees in the light cone of a streetlamp. A passerby asks the drunk: "Did you lose your keys here?" whereupon the drunk replies "N...no... no. wazzn't... here. But o'er here... zhe light iz better... hips!..°*°°"....

Madam Emma Knyckare is that drunk. The problem isn't authochton Swedish men. The likes of Emma Knyckare sliced their balls off decades ago. The problem is 200,000 plus MUSLIM men which were allowed to invade the World's "Humanitarian Superpower". Yet Knyckare and Co refuse to face reality, refuse to differentiate between a born and bred male Swede and a "new" Swede from Mogadishu.

The problem is obvious to everyone possessing at least a 1-digit IQ. The perpetrators, the guys who are groping for female genitalia, are Middle Eastern or North African men. It's NOT Lars and it's NOT Dag and it's NOT Bjorn and it ain't Benny either, for that matter.

But the solution of a Swedish feminist is taking away THEIR music festival - after they took away their masculinity first.

Good luck with that.

RECOMMENDED VIDEOS: NEW ANTI-ISLAMIZATION PARTY IN MILAN, ITALY.

Via our Brothers-in-Arms at Gates of Vienna, an interesting video from Italy, where last Tuesday, in Milan, a new political movement, aimed specifically against islamization, has seen the light:







It's the PAI, for Partitio Anti Islamizzazione, and while Italian politics with it's 432 PM's post WWII and it's many parties is often a joke, the emergence of this particular new movement - not yet a genuine political party alas - is something out of the ordinary. It's a sign of the growing wariness among Europe's indigenous populations of the gruesome character of islam and its adherents.

I must however caution against being too optimistic about this, since the PAI, the brainchild of journalist Stefano Cassinelli and orthodox priest Alessandro Meluzzi, is not against islam, but against 'forced islamization'. It's a major intellectual error since everywhere islam gets a toehold, nothing that follows is voluntary, save perhaps the conversions of deluded souls, and their sorry state is itself a symptom of Europe's problems.

In short, you can't have an islam without forced islamization.

TRUMP'S WARSAW SPEECH WILL GO DOWN IN HISTORY LIKE REAGAN'S BERLIN SPEECH.

Outlaw Mike hereby officially declares PRESIDENT Trump a Conservative.

For me, this speech holds added importance since, being myself married to a Polish gal, I have been able to witness on numerous occasions the indomitable spirit of Poland and the Poles firsthand. And I am mightily PROUD that our children are half Polish, for that matter.

President Trump's speech was a masterstroke in several respects. WHAT he said rang as music in my ears. THAT he said it before the G20 summit, as a not so subtle snub against Europes suicidal 'elites' was wonderful. And WHERE he said it, in front of a Memorial commemmorating the magnificent two-month uprising of the Polish people in their capital against the full armored might of the nazis...

... was brilliant.

I have no time to elaborate, but Breitbart has an excellent article on the speech. I can highly recommend it.







"This is my first visit to Central Europe as President, and I am thrilled that it could be right here at this magnificent, beautiful piece of land. It is beautiful. Poland is the geographic heart of Europe, but more importantly, in the Polish people, we see the soul of Europe. Your nation is great because your spirit is great and your spirit is strong.

For two centuries, Poland suffered constant and brutal attacks. But while Poland could be invaded and occupied, and its borders even erased from the map, it could never be erased from history or from your hearts. In those dark days, you have lost your land but you never lost your pride.

So it is with true admiration that I can say today, that from the farms and villages of your countryside to the cathedrals and squares of your great cities, Poland lives, Poland prospers, and Poland prevails.



Poland is a land of great heroes. And you are a people who know the true value of what you defend.

The triumph of the Polish spirit over centuries of hardship gives us all hope for a future in which good conquers evil, and peace achieves victory over war."



The pas few months have been very testing and depressing, but President Trump is a beacon radiating Hope. REAL Hope.

A FIRST: RAYTHEON-LASER EQUIPPED APACHE ATTACK HELICOPTER ACQUIRES, HITS TARGET.

The weapons of the future are slowly but surely on their way to operational status:





Via Raytheon's website:

"A high energy laser mounted on an Apache AH-64 attack helicopter acquired and hit an unmanned target. The test was conducted by Raytheon and the U.S. Army Apache Program Management Office in collaboration with U.S. Special Operations Command at White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico. It was the first time a fully integrated laser system successfully shot a target from a rotary-wing aircraft over a wide variety of flight regimes, altitudes and air speeds, proving the feasibility of laser attack from Apache. The system tracked and directed energy on a stationary target at a slant range of 1.4 kilometers. (Slant range is the line-of-sight distance between two points at different levels.) The data collected from the test, including impact of vibration, dust and rotor downwash, will help shape future high-energy laser systems. "Our goal is to pull the future forward," said Art Morrish, vice president of Advanced Concepts and Technologies for Raytheon Space and Airborne Systems. "This data collection shows we're on the right track." For the test, Raytheon coupled a variant of the Multi-Spectral Targeting System, an advanced, electro-optical, infrared sensor, with a laser. The MTS provided targeting information, situational awareness and beam control."

And it's a lesson the muslim subjects of the Infidel King take to heart, each and every year. The end of ramadan 2017 was no different. Except it was. It was more and more of that reflection and coming together thingy. Only not in the way our good Saxe-Cobourg scion imagined:

In Liège they had somewhat less "sjans". An entire muslim neighborhood rebelled when a police patrol wanted to intervene in a quarrel between... two girls:


Via La Meuse, June 24, 2017:

"Bagarre générale, émeutes, jets de projectiles sur la police, la nuit a été très chaude dans le Carré à Liège: 7 individus déférés au parquet."

"General mayhem, riots, objects thrown at police: the night has been very hot in the Le Carré neighborhood in Liège: 7 people were arresed."

"Les inspecteurs venaient de maîtriser la situation quand un mouvement de foule s’est produit. «Du jamais vu, en tout cas à cette heure-là», commente une porte-parole de la police de Liège. Des individus se sont alors mis à lancer des projectiles sur les policiers, dont des canettes et du mobilier issu des terrasses. Huit agents ont été légèrement blessés."

"The officers had just cooled down the situation [the quarrel between the two girls, MFBB] when a mob turned up and became agitated. "Never seen anything like this, at least at an hour like that", a spokesperson for the LPD said. "Individuals started throwing projectiles at the officers, amongst others sticks and chairs from nearby terraces. Eight officers were lightly wounded."

Still from the aftermath:

There were also reports of heavy clashes with police in Aalst as well as other incidents. Never before have the muslim riots after the end of ramadan been such a nuisance, which prompted the Antwerp mayor, Bart De Wever, to say that "for twenty years, a certain group shows agression in this period."


There followed a quick rebuke from Tahir Chahbi, a spokesman for the Muslim Executive, the main body representing muslims in Belgium: STOP LINKING VIOLENCE TO OUR COMMUNITY!

"This is about unruly youths who attack the police, not the muslim community. We do not accept their behaviour and are fed up with all the problems they cause in certain neighborhoods, but the generalizations made by De Wever are absolutely not done.

Chahbi emphasizes that the Muslim Executive is sensibilizing (the youths) "to respect all laws". According to the spokesman extra patrols and controlling certain Antwerp neighborhoods will have an effect only in the short term. "More blue on the streets works repressive and not for long", says Chahbi. "You won't get results with that. While in the neighborhoods in question there are certainly people who want to participate in preventive projects around these problem youths. That's an effort that will require time, but if you work with this kind of youths and invests in courses and job creation for them, in two or three years you will have a wholly different atmosphere in these neighborhoods."



Except that Belgian authorities have been doing this kind of thing for twenty years, with no results at all. Ah, the famous job creation mantra!!! Marie Harf comes to mind:





Over and out from Europe, as I am wont to say, the biggest Open Air Lunatic Asylum in the solar system.

MUSLIMS OCCUPY STREET IN SCHAARBEEK FOR PRAYERS.

Molenbeek may be the jihadi capital of Europe, but it is getting fierce competition from Schaarbeek, another one of the 19 communes making up Brussels. And for those preferring to be a pain in the ass here instead of looking for 72 virgins in the Syrian desert, the end of Ramadan offered the perfect occasion to give a big FU to the Belgian homo infidelitus. Via HLN:


 photo schaarbeek_straat_bezet_zpseyvfr1j1.jpg


"SCHAARBEEK. Last Sunday muslims occupied a street in Schaarbeek to pray. The town council reacts angrily, since it did not give authorization for the event.

The day before yesterday, after the end of ramadan, muslims ventured on the street in front of the Kouba mosque to pray. Without authorization they occupied Vanderlinden Street. The faithful deemed it necessary to pray in the open because the street's mosque is too small. Schaarbeek police, faced with a fait accompli, closed off the street during the prayers.

Mayor Bernard Clerfayt (Défi) adressed the La Dernière Heure newspaper re the action: "Relations with the Schaarbeek mosques are normally spoken okay" he says. "They know that the town council does not condone religious activities in public space, no matter what the religion. The mosque had only gotten the green light of the Fire Department to pray inside."

The mayor added that he will write a letter to the mosque. He claims that they themselves are embarrassed with the whole affair and that they ensured him that this will not happen again."


Some conclusions:


a.) Again, muslims deliberately VIOLATED Belgian law. Try to occupy a street as a Belgian non-muslim when police is around and see what happens. So the town council reacted 'angrily'. I bet there were quite a few formerly white djellabas which afterwards were yellow at the crotch and dark brown in the butt region. Not.

b.) "The mosque is too small" is codespeak for "the muslims are growing ever more in number".

c.) Police, instead of rounding up/fining the lawbreakers, actually conceded defeat by sealing off the street, thereby setting a precedent for a follow-up.

d.) Mayor Clerfayt, an old Fleming-hater of the racist party FDF, is either clueless or deluding himself - probably both - if he says that "the mosque knows that the town council does not condone religious activities in the public space". They simply don't give a hoot that's what. Clerfayt's got a lot more balls when obstructing the rights of Flemings in the capital, by all accounts now less than 15 per cent of the population.

e.) So the mosque has "let it be known that it will not happen again". And if you believe that, I have a bridge across the Zenne to sell you for one dinar. Look out for next year. Either it WILL happen again, or they will blackmail the Schaarbeek council for funds to build a bigger mosque, to be coughed up by the infidel taxpayer of course.



And so it goes on, and it goes on, and it goes on, and it goes on, and it goes on, and it goes on. And one day you live in a majority muslim country and it's all over.



Prepare for civil war.

SWEDISH TOP COP DAN ELIASSON BEGGING FOR HELP AGAINST VIOLENCE OF MUSLIM HORDES.

Sobering news from Sweden where the country's top cop, Dan Eliasson, is litterally begging for help in the face of mounting attacks on his forces and the imposition of ever more no go zones, via 10news:


 photo Eliason_Swedish_Police_Chief_zpswz0jo34x.jpg


"A leaked report concludes that the number of lawless areas (commonly referred to as, “no-go zones”) in Sweden now totals 61. That is up from 55 in just one year’s time. This increase includes, not only the total number, but also the geographical size of these areas.

Sweden’s National Police Commissioner, Dan Eliasson, spoke on national television and pleaded for assistance: “Help us, help us!” he said while warning that Swedish police forces no longer can uphold the law and therefore must ask all good powers in the country to support them.

A research expert regarding destabilized countries and 2011 recipient of Sweden’s Order of the Seraphim medal, Johan Patrik Engellau, has been working with organizations like the UN and others that operate in crisis areas. He warns:

“I’m afraid it is the end for the well-organized, decent and egalitarian Sweden we have known so far. Personally, I would not be surprised if a form of civil war occurs. In some places, the civil war has probably already begun.”

10News recently reported how the Swedish state has lost large areas to armed, religious groups best described as Islamist militias. Police chief Lars Alversjø says that, “There is lawlessness in parts of Stockholm (Sweden’s capital) now.” He also observed how, “The legal system, which is a pillar in every democratic society, is collapsing in Sweden.” Per Magnus Ranstorp, a researcher into terrorism and radicalization at the Swedish National Defense College, notes: “In the worst areas extremists have taken over. The whole sense of justice and peace are threatened by the fact that the police is breaking down and it’s only getting worse. Sweden is in a disastrous situation.”

The Swedish Security Service (Säkerhetspolisen – abbreviated as Säpo), recently warned that the country is crawling with “thousands of Islamists” sharing Islamic State’s ideology. In many places, public servants (i.e., non-Islamic authorities) require police protection."

SATURDAY NIGHT ROXY MUSIC, PINK FLOYD.

Roxy Music with Take a Chance with me. From the 1980 album Avalon.





FYI, Avalon is/was a mythical island from Arthurian legends. Geoffrey of Monmouth refers to it as Insula Avallonis in his 1136 work Historia Regum Britanniae. Avalon is where Excalibur, Arthur's sword, would have been forged. And it's also where Arthur would have been carried after the Battle of Camlann, the final battle where he was victorious over Mordred. If you have seen the movie Excalibur, the final scene is of Arthur's body lying on the aft deck of a vessel on its way to Avalon.



Pink Floyd with Learning to Fly. Album A Momentary Lapse of Reason (1987).





First Pink Floyd album after Roger Waters' departure at the end of 1985.


Nite.

RECOMMENDED READS: PAUL RODERICK GREGORY'S "IS RUSSIAGATE REALLY HILLARYGATE?"

Uh-oh. Over at Forbes, Paul Roderick Gregory asks whether Russiagate isn't actually rather Hillarygate - and he's got some very serious material to support that claim. Via Forbes:


 photo hillarygate_zpsbuwmcitu.jpg


"According to an insider account, the Clinton team, put together the Russia Gate narrative within 24 hours of her defeat. The Clinton account explained that Russian hacking and election meddling caused her unexpected loss. Her opponent, Donald Trump, was a puppet of Putin. Trump, they said, “encourages espionage against our people.” The scurrilous Trump dossier, prepared by a London opposition research firm, Orbis, and paid for by unidentified Democrat donors, formed a key part of the Clinton narrative: Trump’s sexual and business escapades in Russia had made him a hostage of the Kremlin, ready to do its bidding. That was Hillary's way to say that Trump is really not President of the United States—a siren call adopted by the Democratic party and media.

Hillary and the Orbis Dossier

The most under covered story of Russia Gate is the interconnection between the Clinton campaign, an unregistered foreign agent of Russia headquartered in DC (Fusion GPS), and the Christopher Steele Orbis dossier. This connection has raised the question of whether Kremlin prepared the dossier as part of a disinformation campaign to sow chaos in the US political system. If ordered and paid for by Hillary Clinton associates, Russia Gate is turned on its head as collusion between Clinton operatives (not Trump’s) and Russian intelligence. Russia Gate becomes Hillary Gate."


....

"The Fusion story has been known since Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) sent a heavily-footnoted letter to the Justice Department on March 31, 2017 demanding for his Judiciary Committee all relevant documents on Fusion GPS, the company that managed the Steele dossier against then-candidate Donald Trump. Grassley writes to justify his demand for documents that: “The issue is of particular concern to the Committee given that when Fusion GPS reportedly was acting as an unregistered agent of Russian interests, it appears to have been simultaneously overseeing the creation of the unsubstantiated dossier of allegations of a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians.” (Emphasis added.)

Former FBI director, James Comey, refused to answer questions about Fusion and the Steele dossier in his May 3 testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee. Comey responded to Lindsey Graham’s questions about Fusion GPS’s involvement “in preparing a dossier against Donald Trump that would be interfering in our election by the Russians?” with “I don’t want to say.” Perhaps he will be called on to answer in a forum where he cannot refuse to answer.

The role of Fusion GPS and one of its key associates, a former Soviet intelligence officer, must raise the question as to whether the Steele dossier, which was orchestrated by a suspected unregistered agent of Russia, was a plant by Russian intelligence to harm Donald Trump?"



It's too early yet to posit all this as true, but it could very well be. You might remember Steele - he's the one who came up with the story of the golden shower Russian prostitutes. Fake news before Hillary & Co invented the term.
