Billy Joel with Honesty. From the 1978 album 52nd Street.

An iconic album with an iconic cover referring to an iconic street:

52nd Street in Manhattan was the centre of New York's jazz scene from the thirties until well into the fifties.

The Chemical Brothers with Wide Open. From the 2015 album Born in the Echoes.

British dance duo from London.

Slaap wel.



Nightmarish scenes shot from what appears to be a bus in Calais, France. The tourists on that bus can count themselves lucky the "refugees" don't board their vehicle:

American Thinker's Carol Brown reports:

"...Over a year into the European migrant crisis, a lorry driver and a haulage union representative has warned that morale is at an “all time low” among truckers who are faced with the daily ordeal of navigating the daily chaos at Calais.

And what exactly is this “ordeal?” It is this: hordes of Muslim “refugee” invaders flood onto the roadway, blocking traffic and criss-crossing lanes as they attempt to enter trucks and buses in any manner possible. It looks like this.

As one trucker noted, “It is not a pleasant thing to be sitting in a cab with people running every which way.” He asked, “Do you think you could see the whites of another human’s eyes seconds before running into them? I don’t know if I could. I don’t know how it would affect me and I don’t want to find out.”

Increasing numbers of truckers are traumatized for fear of hitting an invader as drivers attempt to navigate this chaotic and dangerous scene. It is taking an emotional toll. As one trucker said: “All I want to do is come to work, do my bit and get home to my family safely with my sanity and pride. This is becoming more and more difficult as the days go by.”

And the truckers are put in an untenable position as they face not only the daily trauma of trying to do their job without killing someone, but face large fines if any invader makes it into the UK aboard one of their trucks. How, pray tell, any of these poor souls is supposed to protect against that is anyone’s guess. Are they supposed to get out of their truck and confront a mob of young men fresh from North Africa and other Islamic hellholes?

Meanwhile, this is occurring against the backdrop of invaders getting killed by freight trains that also run through this port area. And of course, no such backdrop would be complete without high drama reaction from the left, as useful idiots in the UK stage protests, replete with fake blood, in support of migrants and open borders. They have catchy slogans like this one: “No more borders, no more nations, no more racist deportations!”

Hey, y’all over there across the pond. If things keep going the way they are, you’ll get your wish. There will be no more United Kingdom or any other nation. Except one. It will be the Islamic Caliphate 24/7. Good luck with their “racist deportations,” because that is the least they will have in mind for you folks...."

But how can this be solved when shrieking lunatics à la Guy Verhofstadt emphatically proclaim before the EU Parliament that somehow, somewhere, this is all OUR FAULT???

What a nightmare.



Over the past few weeks, there has been a steady increase in Paleostinian attacks on Jews, and the modus operandi for De Standaard has invariably been to only report on Israeli retributions.

Perhaps the most notorious incident involved a madman who crashed his car into people waiting at a bus stop in Jerusalem's Geula neighborhood. Not content with mowing his victims down, he got out and starting hacking away like a complete lunatic at an unfortunate rabbi.

Thank God Israel has no gun free zones, because almost immediately an Israeli could pop the scumbag.

There is a STARK contrast between the sheer lunacy displayed by the terrorist - watch again the explosive frenzy with which he chops away at the poor rabbi's body - and the utter restraint of the Israeli. The Israeli has just witnessed the Palestinian running his compatriots down and butchering the religious man with a meat cleaver. In most of us with balls left, we would possibly empty an entire magazine in the perpetrator. Not so the Israeli: he gives off one shot and spares his life. Further on in the video it is not entirely clear whether the gunman survives or not, is once again shot or whatever. But the cool, professional and humane way with which the man neutralizes the perpetrator is light years away from the insane acts of the latter.

This is definitely a "disproportionate response" - only not in the way the left would love to decry.

So it's these parties who have to come to an accord in the so-called "peace talks": one party reasonable, willing to make grandiose gestures (think the removal of Jewish settlers in the Gaza Strip by the IDF in 2005, manu militari!)... and the other party foaming at the mouth, ululating, shrieking murder, and actually wanting to annihilate the opponent.

Anyway, count on De Standaard to report on this incident.


By contrast - imagine, just imagine that a Jewish settler had plowed his car in a bus stop full of Palestinians, got out, and had started butchering the survivors with a meat cleaver.

Would that perhaps have gotten the attention of the editors at De Standaard?

To ask the question is to answer it.

Two works by a leading American Realism painter I admire immensely, Edward Hopper.

The City (1927).

Approaching a city (1946).

Via our brothers-in-arms at Gates of Vienna another telling video featuring Rainer Wendt, chief of the German Police Union.

Translation by Nash Montana, and subtitling by Vlad Tepes. Thx for the good work!

It should be noted that as recently as August of this year, German Interior Minister Thomas de Maizière, upon stating that up to 800,000 people could request asylum in the country by the end of the year, boasted "This is a challenge for us all. We all need to make an effort. But the burden is not too heavy for Germany. We will take care of it."

Given Mr. Wendt's assertions that the tsunami of refugees currently flooding Germany was well expected, as early as a year ago, De Maizières' statements are not only ridiculous, but immoral. And now that it has become clear that the number of 800,000 (1 per cent of the German population) is expected to rise to an astonishing 1.5 MILLION BY THE END OF THE YEAR..., the question should be asked whether De Maizière AND German Chancellor Angela Merkel can even stay on their posts.

Merkel especially will be forever remembered as the person who set the floodgates wide open, when in early September, barely five weeks ago, she meant to profile herself as morally superior by stating that "the right to asylum has no upper limits". Untold thousands of "refugees" in the Middle East did not need to hear more to start packing for Germany. A fool could have foreseen the disasters this blank check would lead to, but not Madam Merkel.

Despite Germany's considerable economic prowess, it is NOT capable of taking in asylum seekers at this rate. At some point, the system will crack. For now, too many Germans are still being fooled by Germany's notorious Luegenpresse, but I expect that by the end of november the ordinary German, no matter how far out in the country he lives, will no longer be capable to ignore the catastrophic mayhem caused by this islamic invasion. For that is what it is.
