In Hannover yesterday: a muslim mob marching with IS and al-Nusra flags smack in the town's center:

"Islam is a part of Germany", eh Angela?



Heartbreaking images shot in Slovenia. This can only be termed as an invasion. These are no refugees. ALL OF THEM are males, military age. Via American Thinker:

There is a plan behind this, and it is aimed at the destabilisation of our continent.

NATO’s Baltic Piranha ‘assurance drills’ kick off in Lithuania.

"Nearly 1,000 soldiers and around 100 pieces of military equipment have been deployed in Lithuania as part of the month-long Baltic Piranha military exercise taking place in the framework of NATO’s “assurance measures,” launched in response to perceived “challenges” posed by Russia.

The war games, which will last until October 28, will see 500 Lithuanian soldiers join forces with Belgian, American and Luxembourgian troops.

Some 280 soldiers from Belgium and 45 from Luxembourg have brought with them their own hardware to test it in action as part of the NATO Rapid Reaction Force. Belgians have arrived on board armored Piranha infantry vehicles, while Luxembourg’s soldiers delivered Dingo II reconnaissance vehicles.

The joint Belgian and Luxembourg company will train to provide support for the US Army’s 12th Combat Aviation Brigade soldiers. Currently around 200 US troops are stationed in the country on rotation.

“The exercise will include moving on public roads and parts of it will take place near populated areas, including meetings with local civilian institutions and people,” the Lithuanian Defense Ministry said in a statement.

The war games will take place at the Kairiai training ground near Klaipeda, and the firing range at Pagegiu, in addition to other facilities throughout the country."

The Belgian contingent is composed mainly of personnel drawn from the Leopoldsburg-based Bataljon Bevrijding - 5 Linie, a part of the Medium Brigade. It's an infantry unit equipped with the MOWAG Piranha Piranha IIIC 8×8. In 2006, the Belgian Army ordered 242 of them in 7 versions, with a breakup as follows: 99 for troop transport, 32 Df30 variants (armed with a rapid firing 30mm gun), 40 Df90's (armed with a 90mm gun), 24 commando and 18 engineer versions, 12 ambulances, and 17 recovery vehicles.

This deployment to Lithuania of around 25 Piranhas is the first operation abroad for the type in Belgian service:

The Fus DFC C90 (Direct Fire Concept Cannon-90mm) Piranha IIIc 8x8 is the most heavily armed version in the Belgian Army. It is equipped with a 90mm "KEnerga" Mk8 gun produced by CMI (Cockerill Maintenance et Ingénierie) in Seraing, near Liège. The gun is housed in a two-person LCTS 90DA1 turret and uses 90mm ammo specifically designed for the Mk8 gun by Mecar in Nivelles, south of Brussels. Rounds comprise a.o. the M690A1 APFSDS-T which can pierce 300mm steel at a distance of 2 km, and the M691A2 HEP-T which is primarily intended for use against bunkers and lightly armoured vehicles. The DFC C90 has 50 rounds on board, of which 20 are stored in the turret and the rest in the fuselage.

This is the second time in a year that Belgium deploys troops in the Baltic. Following the Russian de facto annexation of the Crimea and Russian involvement in Ukraine's civil war early in 2014, NATO has maintained an air policing mission over the Baltic. Until late summer 2015 this mission involved 16 jets from four NATO countries, operating from Siauliai Airbase in Lithuania, Amari Airbase in Estonia, and Malbork in Poland. For the rotation which finished at the end of August, the policing was done by four Royal Norwegian Air Force F-16s and four Italian Air Force Eurofighter Typhoons operating from Siauliai, four UK Royal Air Force Typhoons from Amari, and four Belgian Air Component F-16AMs at Malbork. The following video shows some great footage of our jets over the Baltic, shot with a GoPro camera:

Since 1 September, the mission has been reduced however to two nations and eight aircraft flying out of Siauliai and Amari only. The current rotation involves four Hungarian Saab Gripens at Siauliai and four Luftwaffe Typhoons at Amari.

No one is better placed as a chronicler of our insane times. Yet another poignant column by the One Man Global Content Provider, Mark Steyn:

"... In India, it's Muslims vs Hindus. In southern Thailand, Muslims vs Buddhists. The world is a messy, violent, complicated place, but as a rule of thumb, as I said all those years ago in America Alone, in most corners of the planet it boils down to: Muslims vs [Your Team Here].

Millions of complacent westerners genuinely regard Islam as merely another exotic patch in the diversity quilt, but I find it hard to believe that the leaders of liberal progressive political parties can be quite that deluded. Nevertheless, there was Justin Trudeau at his victory rally at the Queen Elizabeth in Montreal last night:

There are a thousand stories I could share with you about this remarkable campaign, but I want you to think of one in particular. Last week I was in St. Catharines, and I met a young Muslim mum wearing a hijab. She handed me her infant daughter and said something I will never forget. She said she's voting for us because she wants to make sure her little girl can make her own choices in life and that the government will protect those rights.

 photo trudeau_idiot_zpsybli5fd8.jpg

To her, I say this: You and your fellow citizens have chosen a new government that believes deeply in the diversity of our country. We know in our bones that Canada was built from people from all corners of the world, belonging to every faith, every culture, speaking every language. We believe in our hearts that this country's unique diversity is a blessing bestowed upon us by previous generations of Canadians who stared down prejudice and fought discrimination in all forms.

In other words: Canadians voted to say no to hate! On CTV early in the evening, Jason Kenney popped up and pushed back against Lisa LaFlamme's suggestion that the niqab controversy had cost the Tories the election. He pointed out that polls showed some 80 per cent of Canadians opposed to new citizens being masked when taking their oath of allegiance to Queen and country: It had the unusual distinction of being a Harper policy with near universal appeal.

But so what? M Trudeau's narrative is the one that will prevail - that questioning Islamic self-segregation is at odds with "Canadian values". And so no politician with an eye to electoral viability will ever raise the subject again.

Most people want to think of themselves as "nice", and so it's easier to welcome the increasing presence of shrouded women on the streets of Canada as a deepening of our heartwarming embrace of self-affirmation-by-multiculturalism, rather than something that mocks any conventional notions of women's rights. Yet, whatever disquiet might be felt, they will take their signal from their politicians, and fall silent on the matter.

~South of the border, Ahmed the Clock Boy made his long-awaited visit to Washington to meet President Obama, following his pilgrimage to President Bashir of Sudan, the butcher of Darfur, a couple of days earlier. When Ahmed first got into trouble for bringing his "clock" to school, Obama Tweeted his approval ("Cool clock, Ahmed") and invited him to bring it to the White House. Since then, the official line - precocious all-American teen's enthusiasm and ingenuity stymied by ingrained Islamophobia - has taken a bit of a hit. Ahmed can't make a clock. All he can do is rip the guts out of some crappy Radio Shack thing from the Seventies, and tape it into a simulacrum of a suitcase bomb, which is not a skill to be disdained, at least in some parts of the world.

However, it's not really the talent all the hipster execs had in mind when, in the wake of the presidential Tweet, they invited Ahmed to visit the headquarters of Google, Facebook et al. The private sector apparently still has enough sense of self-preservation that the glamorous job offers and grants quietly faded away. And even the Oval Office had supposedly downgraded Ahmed's audience with Obama to part of the crowd scene on White House "Astronomy Night". But no: young Ahmed worked his way to the front of the line and was rewarded with a hug from the President.

The greatest clockmaker of our time explained that he'd been unable to bring his clock to Obama because he's been "too busy traveling", and it's kinda bulky, being the size not of a clock but a bomb, and evidently President Bashir's security in Khartoum being pickier about large ticking devices than the White House. But he's certainly "busy traveling": The quintessential Texas teenager and his family have accepted an offer to move to Qatar.

Nonetheless, like Niqab Girl, Clock Boy has taught us all a valuable lesson with his droll and spectacularly successful provocation. The US Department of Homeland Security's slogan is "If You See Something, Say Something" - unless it's something that might get you accused of Islamophobia, in which case keep it to yourself.

Which is where we came in, on the morning of Tuesday September 11th 2001 at the US Airways First Class check-in desk:

I got an instant chill when I looked at [Mohammed Atta]. I got this grip in my stomach and then, of course, I gave myself a politically correct slap...I thought, 'My God, Michael, these are just a couple of Arab businessmen.'

Clockmed has raised the bar on that one. My God, this is just a young Muslim male. So what if he's ticking? Do I really want to be tied up in sensitivity-training hell for the next six months?

~Meanwhile, in Birmingham, England, where the clock is at the eleventh hour, a new government program designed to identify elementary-school children at risk of "self-detonation" - whoops, I mean "self-radicalization" - is already going gangbusters:

A primary school has reported a 10-year-old Muslim boy to police on suspicion of terrorism, after he complained about not having a prayer room on a field trip.

The boy, a pupil at Parkfield Community School in Birmingham, was on the trip when his 'changed' behaviour drew the teachers' attention.

He also told female Muslim pupils they needed to cover their faces with a head scarf, and expressed an 'alternative' view about the Charlie Hebdo attack...

The school referred the boy to police under the government's Prevent Duty initiative which provides guidance to teachers on spotting signs of extremism.

Over the last 12 months the school, which caters for more than 740 pupils between the ages of five and 11, has reported three pupils to the Counter Terrorism Unit.

All three children were referred after staff were concerned they were displaying signs of developing extremism.

But why is demanding a prayer room a sign of "developing extremism"? All kinds of Muslims demand prayer rooms hither and yon, and they're not all terrorists, are they? Besides, what's wrong with wanting a prayer room? Come to that, what's wrong with expressing an "alternative" view on Charlie Hebdo? After all, an audience of pampered middle-class liberal progressives at Trinity College, Dublin loves "alternative" views on Charlie Hebdo. Why shouldn't a ten-year-old at Parkfield Community School?

Oh, well. The great thing about a bureaucratic program that requires police investigation of grade-schoolers at risk of "developing extremism" is that it's the Big Government trifecta: expensive, time-consuming, and assuredly entirely ineffectual. Whereas, say, a policy of reducing Muslim immigration to the United Kingdom is just cloud-cuckoo land. Can't be done. Pie in the sky. Devoting police resources to investigating every ten-year-old schoolboy who says something "alternative": that we can do.

~Down Under, following the murder of a police accountant by a 15-year-old "violent extremist", authorities are now moving on to the jihad's junior varsity team:

Security agencies are monitoring a 12-year-old boy in relation to suspected terrorist activity, the Australian federal police commissioner, Andrew Colvin, has said, in the leadup to a security summit in Canberra on Thursday...

[Justice minister Michael] Keenan declined to say how many children under the age of 14 were on watchlists. "I do not think it is appropriate for me to go into that," he said.

Indeed. Being on a "watchlist" doesn't affect their performance in the school play or on the track team, so lighten up:

Australian Federal Police Commissioner Andrew Colvin said Australia's terrorist threat had evolved and become younger over the past year.

"We're shocked that a 12-year-old is on police radar for these types of matters," Colvin told Australian Broadcasting Corp. television.

ABC reported on Wednesday that the 12-year-old boy was the youngest of 18 suspected extremists named in a court document in March. The boy's name has not been published.

In case someone invites him to the White House?

And of course:

[Mr Keenan] said it was important to "reach out a hand of friendship" to the Muslim community and "provide reassurance" that security measures were not targeted at one ethnic group or religion.

Best thing to do is target all Aussie 12-year-olds, just to be on the safe side.

~If you're thinking this all seems an awful lot of trouble and expense for a demographic that seems unusually hard to assimilate, and indeed boasts of its disinclination to do so, well, don't worry; it'll get a lot more troublesome and expensive:

Sweden is fast approaching a complete collapse. More and more municipalities are raising the alarm that if the migrants keep coming at this pace, the government can no longer guarantee normal service to its citizens.

Who are these Continentals to demand priority over "migrants" when it comes to government "service"? Keep those migrants coming! Austria:

By September they were arriving at the southeastern border at the rate of 10,000 or 12,000 a day. These migrants are associated in the public mind with the war in Syria but, in fact, come from throughout the Muslim world—Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Bangladesh. Most of them are on their way to Germany. The great majority are young men. By the end of this year, Austrian authorities estimate, 375,000 will have passed through the country, and a quarter of them will have stayed to apply for asylum. Austria will have added 1 percent to its population in just about three months, with virtually all the newcomers Muslims...

Citizens of all the tiny countries that lie between the Middle East and Germany were witnessing a migration far too big for Germany to handle. They knew Germany would eventually realize this, too. Once Germany lost its nerve, the huge human chain of testosterone and poverty would be stuck where it was. And if your country was smaller than Germany—Austria, for instance, is a tenth Germany's size—you could wind up in a situation where the majority of fighting-age men in your country were foreigners with a grievance.

Whoa. Don't go there, girlfriend. It's like The New York Times says:

VIENNA — As befits the city of Sigmund Freud, Vienna has two faces — one sweet, one sinister.

Behind the schnitzel and strudel, Mozart and the opera, lurks the legacy of the Nazis who forced Jews to clean sidewalks with toothbrushes... Now, to the astonishment of many and the alarm of some, the burning question in Vienna's elegant cafes is, Which face will prevail in the city's bellwether elections on Oct. 11?

So, if you're not passing out the strudel to every strapping young Muslim lad coming down the Karntnerstrasse, you're a Nazi.

Speaking of cleaning the sidewalks with toothbrushes, I don't think that'll cut it in the small border town of Nickelsdorf, now "an orgy of garbage and feces of unparalleled dimensions". In the most well-ordered and maintained country on the Continent, the sh*t is hitting the fans of open borders. We're gonna need a lot more strudel.

~So don't mention the veil, don't mention the ticking, don't get too specific about the precise nature of the "alternative views" of Charlie Hebdo, "provide reassurance" that it's nothing to do with Islam ...and tell your crime reporters to fill the space with strudel recipes:

Her father and brothers stabbed her to death on her mother's orders, after she was gang-raped by three men. The rape left her "unclean" and the mother allegedly demanded the killing to restore the family's honor. German police are seeking the father and brothers. That by itself is not newsworthy; what is newsworthy is the news itself, which appeared in not one of Germany's major daily newspapers or websites.

 photo dessau_murder_rokstan_m_zpsehawzz1v.jpg

"Islam is a part of Germany", eh, Angela?

Which brings us back to Justin Trudeau, and the niqab "controversy". You're not a Nazi, are you? Best to self-veil, metaphorically (for the moment): That way there's nothing to see...."

Wow, not that we mentioned Ahmed the Clock Boy, yup, here's one photo the creeps at Belgium's "prime" newspaper De Standaard seem to have missed (via GettyImages):

 photo ahmedclockboy_zpsdmedyqwa.jpg

Ahmed ClockBoy a couple of days ago, together with his father, left, and Sudan's genocidal dictator Omar al-Bashir. Via Wiki: "On 14 July 2008, the Chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC), Luis Moreno Ocampo, alleged that al-Bashir bore individual criminal responsibility for genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes committed since 2003 in Darfur.[16] The prosecutor accused al-Bashir of having "masterminded and implemented" a plan to destroy the three main ethnic groups—Fur, Masalit, and Zaghawa—with a campaign of murder, rape, and deportation. The arrest warrant is supported by NATO, the Genocide Intervention Network, and Amnesty International..."

By contrast, they happen to be very much aware of Ahmed's visit to another President, AND WE ALL OUGHT TO KNOW IT:

 photo clockboy_ahmed_zpsyn3gk4ve.jpg

America's most irritating fake nerd received the "honor" of meeting Obama. THAT's what you the Great Unwashed ought to know, not that the bugger was just a few days previously best pals with a murderous swine who eleven years ago orchestrated the genocide of around 400,000 Darfurians.

Memo to De Standaard editors: hey idiots, on the one hand you found an item re this annoying critter invited to attend the White House's Astronomy Night, but on the other hand you missed his cozying up to that monster of an al-Bashir? There's two possibilities here: either you think that's okey dokey, in which case you are SCUM.

Or else you genuinely overlooked that Ahmed the Crock Boy visited the Darfur Killer, which makes me doubt you could find your own balls even if I gave you the precise GPS coordinates where they ought to be and a pair of MagLite ML300Ls.


PS: you are scum anyway. Also, forget that last paragraph. You haven't got balls.

A compelling article by Brandi Walton over at The Federalist.

"Dear LGBT Community,

I am not your daughter. I never carried a flag in one of your gay pride parades. I have never written a letter on your behalf to a congressman or anyone else, and I have never felt the need to make people accept the fact I am the daughter of a lesbian. Perhaps it’s because she never felt the need to force people to accept her for being one.

No, I would never align myself to a community as intolerant and self-absorbed as the LGBT community, a community that demands tolerance with fervor and passion, yet does not give it in return, even to its own members at times. In fact, this community attacks anyone who does not agree with them, no matter how lovingly any difference of opinion is expressed.

I myself am a product of the Lesbian Revolution of the 1980s. My mother always knew she liked girls, but tried hard to be a good, straight, southern Baptist girl. When I was a year old, she left my dad for another man, whom we lived with until I was somewhere around four years old. After the divorce, she told my father to leave, which he did, and in his own words, “I did because I knew I couldn’t fight the entire family to see you.” I cannot remember the man she left him for very well, but I can remember being happy living with him. It did not last, however, and when she left him, she left him for a woman.

Silencing People about Homosexuality Won’t Change What Kids Can See

 photo brandi_walton_zpshsn64y9x.jpgI knew from a young age that living with two women was not natural. I could especially see it in the homes of my friends who had a mom and a dad. I spent as much time with those friends as I possibly could. I yearned for the affection that my friends received from their dads. I wanted to know what it was like to be held and cherished by a man, what it was like to live with one from day to day.

As far as I was concerned, I already had one mother; I did not need another. My dream was that my mother would decide she wanted to be with men again, but obviously that dream did not come true. My grandfathers and uncles did the best they could when it came to spending time with me and doing all the daddy-daughter stuff, but it was not the same as having a full-time father, and I knew it. It always felt secondhand.

Growing up without the presence of a man in my home damaged me personally. All I wanted from the time I was a little girl was a normal family. When I graduated high school, my thoughts were not entirely where they needed to be. While my friends were excited about college, a piece of me was missing, and I knew I would never feel whole until I found it.

Men Need Women Need Men

I had a desire unlike any other to create my own family and have stability, and this led to two extremely unhealthy relationships. Luckily, I found my way out of both, but after being hurt and used so badly, I decided happiness just was not meant for me. Shortly afterwards, I met my husband, and everything clicked. For the first time, I felt alive and complete. Having children and seeing a man parent a child for the first time was beautiful and awe-inspiring. It only reinforced my belief that a child needs a mother and a father, and that same-sex parenting and single parenting are far inferior to heterosexual parenting when done correctly.

Knowing next to nothing about males is hardly all that was hard about being raised by two women. It probably comes as no surprise that growing up in Podunk, Oklahoma, was not a walk in the park. Unlike other kids who were apparently raised in gay utopias, I grew up very alone and isolated. I was an only child and there weren’t other kids around like me to talk with and relate to. No one I knew understood what I struggled with each day, and I had no option but to keep it all inside.

As an adult, I have tried to talk to my mom about how difficult my life was, but she simply cannot relate because she was raised by a mom and a dad. As a child, I would not have spoken out about the way I was being raised, either. I love my mom. She was the center of my universe and the thought of saying something to outsiders that would have hurt her devastated me. Writing this letter right this very moment is devastating me.

But I am doing it anyway. I am doing it because people need to know that it is not all roses. The effects of growing up the way I did still plays a part in my life today. I was beyond self-conscious as a child, and constantly worried about what others thought of me. I was always terrified of someone finding out my mom was a lesbian and then wanting nothing to do with me. For most of my life, the perceived opinions of others have dominated, and only recently have I been able to let that go.

That is only the tip of the iceberg. The studies claiming we are just as well or better off than our peers raised by straight parents are hardly scientific in most cases, and do not represent us all. People need to know that some children of gay parents do not agree with gay adoption and marriage, just like some gay people themselves don’t agree with it, either! But you will notice that fact is not making headlines.

The Huffington Post published two responses to Heather Barwick’s recent letter here at The Federalist, and both were written by people who were raised with members of the opposite sex in the home—a male raised by women, and a female who had brothers present. It makes total sense that their experiences were not like mine and Heather’s, since we were both raised by women.

And just because one product of artificial insemination does not feel she was robbed does not mean others don’t. I am aware there are kids out there who disagree with my point of view, just like there are gays out there who disagree with the LGBT community’s point of view. But to suggest this is not a reason to validate and listen to a handful of children raised by gays, and who are against it, is ridiculous. After all, it is but a handful of people demanding we redefine marriage and parenting, and we all see how well that’s going.

Not Yours,

Brandi Walton

Brandi Walton grew up in southern Oklahoma as the only child in a lesbian household. She has decided to come forward at this time to discuss the issues surrounding children of homosexuals in hopes of educating the general public. She is married and is the mother of four children."

Mrs Walton is right. There's things children can only learn from a mother. And there are things they can only learn from a father.

Speaking of which...

... my mother-in-law recently sent my wife a link to a video for all dads.

I think she did it because, well, I don't spend enough time with my son F., who is eight now. I do spend more time with our daughter, true - cause that girl's been thru some rather rough times herself. And yes, I know, the business is consuming me.

But still... I fear that where it concerns our boy I'm still too greedy regarding my scarce private time.

F. needs me more. He's such a good kid. He's a wonderful kid. I should not take it for granted how wonderful he is. Also, both he and his sister are growing up so FAST... it's beginning to dawn on me that if I am not there for them more, especially for our boy, I may bitterly regret it by the time I suddenly realize they've become young adults.

OK E., I promise you to spend more time with my son, your grandson. So help me God.

And out there... if you're in my situation... maybe E's video will inspire you:



... but as a Rightwinger, I respect the democratic process. So be it. Just one thing. This is going to be a Zapatero - Hollande - Obama - whatever redux. Canadians, DON'T come whining in a couple of years, because you're headeded for worse.

Stimulate the economy by spending 20 billion on green energy huh? That worked wonders in the US of A didn't it?

That's German for "Merkel GET OUT!!!"

I'm too angry and frustrated to write more, if I find the energy this night I may elaborate a bit, but "Frau" Merkel has just announced that if Turkey "helps" with the "refugee" crisis it will be rewarded with... revving up the process for making it a full-fledged EU member!!!

I was aghast, literally AGHAST, when I read that last night.

So first off, Europe has already known an astonishing increase of it's muslim population over the past two or three decades courtesy of leftists facilitating their entry, in quite a few instances to make good for the loss of their traditional electorate.

TWO. Then all hell breaks loose in the ME and basically everywhere where muslims are running the show because their societal model is hopelessly flawed and they can't live in peace with just about nobody, not even their own ilk. So their societies collapse, and where are they fleeing to? Why, the land of the infidels of course!

THREE: in a suicidal gesture of misplaced magnaminity, Europe's "elites", Frau Merkel first of all, open the doors wide open, leading to an expected influx of muslims in Germany alone of an estimated 1,500,000 persons. Apart from some small hapless Christian or other non-muslim groups all non-assimilable.

FOUR: and to top it all off, as a solution for their self-induced problems, Madam Merkel and her associated clique of leftist lunatics now plan to .... make it easier for Turkey to enter the EU!!!

So she shoots herself in the foot by inviting millions of clitoridectomy aficionados, and to "solve" it she will prepare the seats for a muslim EU faction backed by 78 million Turks in Turkey itself, 4 million Turks IN GERMANY ALREADY, and a couple of millions more in the rest of the EU. It follows that arguably THE SINGLE BIGGEST VOTING BLOC IN THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT, capable of vetoing anything and all, capable of pushing "anti-blasphemy laws" through....


This INSANE woman has to be STOPPED. PRONTO.

I take some small consolation from the fact that a part of Germans are very well aware of the catastrophy that is about to be unleashed on the Heimat, see e.g. this video, per Gates of Vienna, of a PEGIDA demo in Lower Saxony:

But we need more and more of these demos.

Two paintings by one of England's leading landscape artists and Romantic painters, John Constable:

 photo Constable_Wivenhoepark_zpsxwplwfoy.jpg

Wivenhoe Park (1816), which turned out to be Constable's breakthrough work. It was commissioned by the park's owner, Major General Francis Slater-Rebow. Barely visible to the left about halfway up is a donkey cart, with the general's daughter at the reins.

Weymouth Bay: Bowleaze Cove and Jordon Hill. A painting from around the same period, 1816-1817.

Good night.
