Creedence Clearwater Revival with Proud Mary. Album Bayou Country (1969).

The good old times, huh? Short-lived (1967-1972) Southern Rock band, although they were actually from the Bay Area, CA.

Jamiroquai with Virtual Insanity. Album Travelling Without Moving (1996).

Virtual Insanity right. I live in Europe, I know all about it.

Goede nacht.



Via Breitbart, Saturday, NOV 5:

The union representing the US's Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers, issues a stark warning just ahead of the elections:

"In a final warning to the American people ahead of Tuesday’s election, the nation’s frontline immigration officers are calling upon voters to reject Hillary Clinton and her “radical” open borders vision that will “unleash” violence in American communities and “cause countless preventable deaths.”

Although the nation’s border emergency goes virtually unreported by “corporate-funded media,” Clinton’s immigration policies would greatly exacerbate the crisis, the officers warn in a statement written by the president of the National ICE Council, which represents the nation’s roughly 5,000 frontline ICE officers, agents, and personnel.

“Hillary’s pledge for ‘open borders’ will mean disaster for our country, and turn the present border emergency into a cataclysm,” writes ICE Council President Chris Crane. “Hillary’s plan would unleash violent cartels and brutal transnational gangs into US communities and cause countless preventable deaths.”

 photo illegal_border_crossings2016_zpsfe9ocq4x.jpg

Crane explains that the uncontrolled flood of record numbers of migrants into the country will be especially harmful on poor communities– including Hispanic and immigrant communities that will bear “the economic brunt the illegal immigrant surge.”

ICE officers on the front lines are witnessing a deluge of illegal immigration unlike anything we have seen before. The corporate-funded media won’t cover it. Our officers are being ordered to release recent border-crossers with no idea what their intentions are or what they are planning. Gang members, drug cartels and violent smugglers are taking advantage of the situation and threatening American communities. The influx is overwhelming public resources, especially in poor communities — including Hispanic communities and immigrant communities bearing the economic brunt of the illegal immigration surge.

Both border patrol and ICE agents have reported that the current border surge is the “worst we’ve ever seen it”– even surpassing the record influx experienced during 2014 border crisis. One ICE officer explained that with no room to house the incoming flood of migrants, agents have been forced to release illegals aliens–potentially including “would-be perpetrators or terrorists whose intent is to harm Americans or our country as a whole”– into American communities where they disappear “into the wind never to be seen by us again.”

In September the National ICE Council endorsed Donald Trump over Clinton and “urged all Americans, especially the millions of lawful immigrants living within our country, to support Donald J. Trump, and to protect American jobs, wages and lives.” The endorsement marked the ICE Council’s first-ever endorsement of any candidate for any elected office.

In a statement announcing the endorsement, Crane warned against Clinton’s “radical plan” of “total amnesty plus open borders” that “would result in the loss of innocent American lives, mass victimization and death for many attempting to immigrate to the United States, the total gutting of interior enforcement, the handcuffing of ICE officers, and uncontrollable flood of illegal immigrants across U.S. borders.” Crane warned that the agenda of non-enforcement, favored by Clinton, “results in the daily loss of life.”

By contrast, Donald Trump has pledged that he will enforce the nation’s immigration law and will advance an “America first” immigration policy that prioritizes the needs and interests of the American electorate. “After my inauguration, for the first time in decades, Americans will wake up in a country where their immigration laws are enforced,” Trump told Breitbart News earlier this year..."

Last year, the DEA released info revealing how the Mexican drug cartels already rule Texas border towns, and how their influence spreads over the US like wildfire:

 photo cartels_influence_zpsqz9usmw4.jpg

"Declassified information released by the DEA shows counter narcotics data gathered over the course of a year. The May 2015 data was released last month in a report showing the wide-ranging influence of the Sinaloa Cartel.

The study lists the cartels the DEA is paying close attention to: the Sinaloa Cartel, the Jalisco New Generation Cartel, the Beltran-Leyva Organization, Los Zetas, the Gulf Cartel, the Juarez Cartel, La Linea, La Familia Michoacana and the Knights Templar.

The Mexican magazine “Proceso” reviewed the study in its latest issue saying the DEA report shows the increasing “narco invasion” of the United States."

We are one year further now, and developments have actually speeded up.

The murderous thugs of the Sinaloa Cartel, the Jalisco New Generation Cartel, the Beltran-Leyva Organization, Los Zetas, the Gulf Cartel, the Juarez Cartel, La Linea, La Familia Michoacana and the Knights Templar are all frantically rooting for Hillary Clinton, shoulder to shoulder with Jay-Z, Beyonce, Moby, J.K. Rowling, Robert Downey Jr., Angela Merkel and Islamic State.

What about you?

Photobucket has been down all day which is why there's no pics showing on this here humble blog.

Since I am convinced a story tells itself much better when there are pics around, not too many words this evening. But I do have a short hilarious video for you, courtesy our Gates of Vienna buddies. Hilarious, as in Norwegian Lefty Forgets To Breathe When Norwegian Righty (one of the 2 1/2 on count) Praises Trump:

That... look on her face!!! PRICELESS!!! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA!!!!

This short video is from some Norwegian talk show immediately post a Trump/Clinton debate, and that guy is Hans Jørgen Lysglimt Johansen, a politician, entrepreneur, and social commentator. Currently he's with Norway's Pirate Party, which I admit still sounds like a bunch of weirdos to me, but Johansen has a past in Norway's Progress Party (contrary to what you would think it's the closest thing to a Rightwing party in Norway) and later in the Free Democrats (also not what you would think). He's prolly no conservative at all, but at least he's got strong libertarian leanings (he's a co-founder and leader of Norway's Mises Institute), and in Europe that's a lot already.

The dame is Brita Møystad Engseth, a lefty film critic and journalist. Gates of Vienna leaves us in the cold about whether she got a heart attack afterwards.

Tania Groth did the translation, Vlad Tepes the subtitles. Thanks, folks!

Over at The Gatestone Institute, Giulio Meotti continues to chronicle the demise of Christianity in Europe, and especially in France:

"... A new book is shaking France. Les cloches sonneront-elles encore demain? ("Will the Church Bells Ring Tomorrow?"), by Philippe de Villiers, is shattering the nation. France, the "eldest daughter" of the Catholic Church, is instead turning into "the eldest daughter of Islam". "With arrogance, they [Muslim extremists] urge us to rewrite the history of France in the light of the 'contribution of the Islamic civilization'", de Villiers states.

De Villiers points out that:

"France has experienced many misfortunes in its history. But for the first time, it must face the fear of disappearing. In France, there are two groups: a new people who move with pride and an exhausted people, who are not even aware of the conditions needed for their own survival".

 photo PDV_islamisation_zpscb4ne03l.jpg

De Villiers paints a grim picture of French Catholicism: "Avignon is no longer the city of the Popes, but of the Salafis". In Saint-Denis, where the French kings and Charles Martel are buried, "tunics and beards now dominate, and girls are dressed in the Islamic shrouds". If a parish is still alive there, it is thanks to the zeal of the Christian community of Africans and Tamils. "The Kings' cemetery is just one enclave. It belongs to a story that does not count anymore".

The bell towers of the churches in de Villiers' book are already growing silent in Boissettes (Seine-et-Marne), and on the outskirts of Metz, where the bells of the church of Sainte Ruffine have been forced by the state secularist authorities to keep silent. It happened in the Breton village of Hédé-Bazouges, where silence is filled by the sound of what de Villiers calls "the clergy in the djellaba" [outer robe worn by North Africans] -- the muezzin's call to prayer. It is happening everywhere in France."


"France is no longer a Catholic country", writes Frederic Lenoir, editor in chief of Le Monde des Religions. Le Figaro wondered if Islam can already be considered "France's prime religion".

It is estimated today in France that for every practicing Muslim there are three practicing Catholics. But if the analysis is deepened, it appears that this ratio will soon reverse. Comparing only the weekly frequency of attending a mosque on Friday and a church on Sunday, the scenario is clear: 65% of practicing Catholics are over the age of 50. By contrast, 73% of practicing Muslims are under 50. The trend indicates that in France, there are currently three young practicing Muslims for every young practicing Catholic.

The same is true for the construction of new religious sites. There are nearly 2,400 mosques today in France, compared to 1,500 in 2003: "This is the most visible sign of the rapid growth of Islam in France", according to the weekly magazine, Valeurs Actuelles. Almost two new mosques are built each week: that is the pace of expansion of Muslim places of worship in France for the last 10 years. The record is held by Corsica: in 2003 there were no Muslim places of worship, now it has 11.

 photo mosques_in_france_invasion_zps60ik1ypp.jpg

Muslim countries are generously funding France's mosques. Foreign funding covers an average of 50% of total costs: for the Grand Mosque of Strasbourg, 37% came from Morocco, 13% from Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. At Roissy-en-Brie, the Sultanate of Oman contributed 1.8 million euros, or two-thirds, of the budget. In Marseille, Qatar will provide 25% of the funding.

Charles Adhémar, a French political scientist, also commented on the "de-Christianization and gradual Islamization of France". The picture over the last year has been devastating: A Catholic priest murdered inside a French church by Muslim extremists; Muslim leaders who call to convert empty churches into mosques; Christian faithful dragged from Paris's churches before they are demolished. Even Lourdes, France's most famous Catholic site, lies in crisis because of the shortage of pilgrims.

French Catholicism is now witnessing a tragic decline, caught between two fires: state secularism and political Islam. "In forty years, France has become the nation in Western Europe where the population of Muslim origin is the most important", wrote the Osservatore Romano, the Vatican's official daily newspaper. "It is conceivable that Islam is overtaking Catholicism".

What is it with my "fellow" Europeans that they have so massively turned their backs to our own civilization and to the belief system that is its foundation? A belief system that places Man central, from which flows that it values human life before anything else. Which is why the many Europeans who despise Christianity are content with killing those in the womb, and will soon be content with killing those who because of their old age become a burden. But where they excel in taking lives, they do not excel at all in giving life.

A belief system that teaches its adherents the necessary humility before the unfathomable and wonderful Universe, a humility that serves us well in our interactions with others. Which is why the many Europeans who despise Christianity have become vain, and their interactions with others hostile, especially with those who they regard as silly because they still practice what the 'sophisticates' regard as silly old customs.

Yet, curiously, Christianity is simultaneously a belief system that teaches us just as well how utterly Unique each of us is, "created in the image of God". Which is why the despisers of Christianity have unconsciously become absorbed by hatred for their own civilization... and ultimately, hatred for themselves.

I consider Putin an ice-cold murderer.

So when I have to agree with Putin, things must be pretty bad.

And they are.

First, let me bring you up to speed - if you haven't heard from this horrible case yet, that is. In short, last December, an Iraqi immigrant on an "integration tour" in the Viennese swimming pool of Theresienstadt anally penetrated a 10 year old boy, even though the kid was crying 'Nein, nein" all the time. I could have written 'raped', but that sounds just too innocent for this prime example of Merkels beloved "refugees". Anyway, the bastard was caught and convicted to six years. Thereafter some enlightened, morally superior judges in Austria's Supreme Court judged that the poor chap - the Iraqi, in their opinion - in all likelihood did not understand that 'Nein' is German for 'No'...

... and set him free. Via Express:

 photo iraqi_immigrant_raped_austrian_boy_zpsykl5d2dt.jpg

Thanks to the indispensable French site François Desouche, we learn that the disgusting and insane decision of the Austrian "Supreme" Court did not go unnoticed in the Kremlin, of all places:

Dunno if you noticed it, but Mark Steyn is back. And as per usual, putting it so much better than I ever could:

... "Migrant rights now trump children's rights." Hold that thought:

~ AN IRAQI asylum seeker who confessed to raping a 10-year-old boy in a swimming pool, claiming it was a "sexual emergency", has had his conviction overturned.

This was a Viennese rape case that received quite a bit of coverage a few months ago, mainly because of the accused's defense that he was undergoing a "sexual emergency": Like almost 80 per cent of "refugees", Amir is a fit young man. He'd scrammed out of the country leaving his wife behind and therefore had not enjoyed conjugal relations for four months. Hence the "sexual emergency":

~ When the youngster went to the showers, Amir A. allegedly followed him, pushed him into a toilet cubicle, and violently sexually assaulted him.

~ Following the attack, the accused rapist returned to the pool and was practising on the diving board when police arrived, after the 10-year-old raised the alarm with the lifeguard.

~ The child suffered severe anal injuries which had to be treated at a local children's hospital, and is still plagued by serious post-traumatic stress disorder.

Amir was convicted of rape and serious sexual assault of a minor and sentenced to six years. However, the Austrian Supreme Court has now quashed the verdict. But hang on, didn't the guy confess? Ah, yes, but...

~ The Supreme Court yesterday overturned the conviction, accepting the defence lawyer's claim that the original court had not done enough to ascertain whether or not the rapist realised the child was saying no...

You might think the screams would have been a clue there, but apparently not:

~ The appeal court said the initial ruling should have dealt with whether the offender thought that the victim had agreed with the sexual act, or whether he had intended to act against his will.

I believe in Austria the minimum age of consent is 14, so, by definition, a ten-year old cannot "consent" to a "sexual act", if violent anal rape can be dignified as such.

Or at least that's the way we used to understand it in the civilized world. Of course, in much of the rest of the planet - and especially in the Muslim world - children are obliged to "consent" to all kinds of things. Once upon a time, when the unfortunate denizens of such societies came to the west, we were culturally confident enough to require them to assimilate with us.

Instead, in an age of civilizational self-loathing, we assimilate with them. So the same sexual license young Muslim men enjoy in, say, Kandahar now extends to Linz and Salzburg.

When I made my point in the Munk Debate, our opponents, the telly historian Simon Schama and the former UN High Commissioner Louise Arbour, thought it was an opportunity for comedy. Simon reckoned me and Nigel Farage were just "a bit sad" - losers who couldn't get any action and so got turned on by obsessing about migrant rape. This insouciance did not work out well for him.

To accord their response more respect than it merits, Louise and Simon's point was that: sure, there's a bit of child rape here and there, but what's the big deal? It's a relatively small and manageable amount.

It's not, but let that pass. That was my point: "Migrant rights trump women's rights" and "migrant rights trump children's rights" and (in some of the most grisly cases) "migrant rights trump disabled rights". It's not that there's only three or four - or seven or twelve, or 29 or 97 or 236 or 1,768 - rapes. It's not the "small" number of cases, but the fact that, in a fainthearted age prostrate before the multicultural pieties, these "few" cases are changing us. So that the most eminent jurists in Austria feel obliged to assimilate with their invaders: hey, how was poor old Amir supposed to know the cute l'il moppet wasn't consenting to anal rape?

Is this ruling of general application? Would Fritz and Gerhard have their appetites so indulged? Or do these new migrant rights also trump such outmoded concepts as equality before the law?

From the expanded e-book edition of Mark Steyn's Passing Parade:

~ According to the Vienna Institute of Demography, by mid-century a majority of Austrians under 15 will be Muslim. This is a country that not so long ago was 90 percent Catholic. But "not so long ago" is another country: Salzburg, 1938, singing nuns, Julie Andrews — "How do you solve a problem like Maria?" Salzburg, 2038: How do you solve a problem like sharia?

But the Sound of Music gags aren't really that funny, are they? The hills are alive with the sound of child rape, but in the halls of justice, amidst all the celebrations of diversity, no one can hear their screams.

And, for those still looking for the joke, the funniest line in the story:

Amir A, 20, was visiting the Theresienbad pool in the Austrian capital of Vienna last December as part of a trip to encourage integration.

Let's recap Putin's money quote:

 photo Putin_quote_zpsx7ichark.jpg

"A society that cannot defend its children today - has no tomorrow. It has no future."

I agree - even though you are a SOB.

Now, think that America is on the brink of electing a woman who will proceed to name at least two, and possibly three, judges for the US's Supreme Court.

These will be Judges à la Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Elena Kagan.

And a US Supreme Court judging the exact same way as the Austrian Supreme Court when some hapless All American kid gets anally raped by thugs who were able to stroll into the US of A unhindered, courtesy you know who ...

... becomes a very real possibility.

Your choice, Americans. Your choice.

Via the BAF website, this interesting video about the operations of our F-16's from a Jordanian AFB. It dates from 30 september:

Some background info from Janes:

"Belgian-Dutch co-operation in air operations against the so-called Islamic State in Iraq and Syria is having a larger impact than the two countries' "modest air forces" could have on their own, the chief of the Belgian air forces said on 30 September.

Major General Frederik Vansina cited synergies in the use of maintenance equipment and the minimisation of the logistical footprint and deployment costs among the benefits of Belgium's partnership with the Netherlands in operating a European Participating Air Forces (EPAF) expeditionary air wing from Jordan. Belgium and the Netherlands take turns as the lead nation, providing F-16s for Operation 'Desert Falcon', with the supporting nation providing force protection.

Six Belgian Air Force F-16s and 96 personnel were deployed to Jordan for a year from 1 July, providing close air support (CAS), air interdiction, and air reconnaissance over Iraq and Syria. Maj Gen Vansina described a battle rhythm of two to four sorties averaging five hours each on six flying days a week, with the seventh day devoted to maintenance.

Between 1 July and 25 September the Belgian F-16s logged 1,115 hours during 220 sorties and 105 missions, mostly over Iraq.

Three-quarters of these missions were for CAS, 13% were air interdiction missions, and 12% were reconnaissance sorties. Some 44% of the missions were 'kinetic', involving the dropping of laser- or GPS-guided bombs. Maj Gen Vansina declined to reveal further details of the ordnance expended but said imagery of 355 "points of interest" was provided by the reconnaissance missions.

He said Belgian F-16s encountered more air defence activity in the form of anti-aircraft artillery and machine guns over Syria than over Iraq, but that they were flying too high to be affected. He claimed 100% mission effectiveness and adherence to the rules of engagement without any collateral damage.

The general added that there was no connection but rather co-ordination with Russian air operations through the Combined Air Operations Center (CAOC) at Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar."

It is indeed true that The Netherlands and Belgium take turns in providing jets to the anti-IS mission. From SEP 2014 to July 2015 our countries operated simultaneously, but then our detachment was sent home due to budgetary reasons. The Dutch continued until July of this year, when we took over again. This BAF mission will end in July 2017, after which the RNLAF takes over again.

Base protection however is always the responsibility of the country not deploying jets. So in 2015/2016 there was a Belgian platoon of infantry guarding the Dutch jets, whereas currently a Dutch platoon is deployed to protect the Belgian jets.

Some stills of the video, because all videos seem to disappear after a while:

 photo BAF_ordnance2016_zpsfuraimo0.jpg

 photo target_hit_BAF2016_zpst4ujvdsj.jpg

Some points yet.

a.) There was quite a row some two weeks ago when Russia accused Belgian jets of having killed 6 civilians in the village of Hasajek near Aleppo on 18 October, a claim Belgian Secdef Steven Vandeput immediately denied vehemently. It is always possible, of course, but I consider it highly unlikely since Vandeput and the top brass of the Air Force are boasting forever of their absolute commitment to avoid "collateral damage", the necessity of approval for each strike from a "Red Card Holder" etc. And to the best of my knowledge the Russians have still not backed up their claim with unequivocal proof. I actually find it quite rich from the Russians to come complaining about innocent civilian casualties when they themselves are known to bomb without much regard for civilian losses (I'm being polite here). They also deploy thermobaric weapons, like the ODAB-500 PM, see this video:

Not only do thermobaric weapons kill indiscriminately within a certain radius depending on the charge, but the ODAB-500 PM's the Russian Air Force uses in Syria are unguided! And only a couple of weeks ago the presence in Syria of the TOS-1A BM-1 Solntsepyok finally got the press coverage it deserves, since this multiple rocket launcher mounted on a T-72 chassis, nicknamed 'Blazing Sun' reportedly kills everyone inside a 200 by 400m rectangle. The 24 thermobaric missiles fired from 220mm tubes are also unguided - so Russia is really not the most credible party to deplore civilians killed or maimed in the Syrian conflict.

b.) At the beginning of the BAF's latest deployment, on July 1 of this year, news was that our jets would use GBU-39 Small Diameter Bombs (SDB's) to even further reduce the risk of killing innocent civilians. The SDB's in question would be units on loan from the Dutch, since The Netherlands seem to have had them in their inventory for a couple of years already. Belgium, which ordered its SDB's much later, will only receive their units towards the end of 2017, and word was that the first ones arriving would be handed over to the RNLAF to compensate for the ones we used over Iraq and Syria.

However, the last but one pic above clearly shows a GBU-12 Paveway II, a laser-guided bomb based on the "dumb" Mk82 500-pound bomb. So either we aren't using the Dutch ordnance for one reason or another, or we do, but not always, i.e. only when it absolutely has to be a pinpoint attack. This would make sense to me, since the unit cost of a GBU-39 is almost double that of a GBU-12 (40,000 US dollars to 21,896 US dollars).

c.) And then I have some trouble computing the video still of the large building in the last pic. I assume this must pass for a storage facility for IS vehicles or weaponry of some kind. An explosion like that is spectacular, of course. But would ISIS, two years into the war, still use large, blocky, easily recognizable structures like that for storing valuable stocks? If I were them, I would by now store my stuff in a dispersed manner, in smaller compounds which look innocent from the air. Is it not possible that targets which are so obvious are mere decoys, and that IS has spread the word they contain ammo or AFV's or whatever? I just hope the Coalition's intelligence has calculated this possibility in.

Via CNBC no less:


Speaking at the National Press Club in Washington, Thiel amplified on his support for the Republican nominee to whom he donated $1.25 million in a move that stunned Silicon Valley.

by Jeff Cox

Tech entrepreneur Peter Thiel amped up his support for Donald Trump on Monday, saying the billionaire businessman gets "the big things" right despite "offensive and inappropriate" remarks.

"No matter what happens in this election, what Trump represents isn't crazy and it's not going away," he said, according to prepared remarks. "He points toward a new Republican Party beyond the dogmas of Reaganism. He points even beyond the remaking of one party to a new American politics that overcomes denial, rejects bubble thinking and reckons with reality.

"When the distracting spectacles of this election season are forgotten and the history of our time is written, the only important question will be whether or not that new politics came too late."

Speaking at the National Press Club in Washington, Thiel amplified on his support for the Republican nominee to whom he donated $1.25 million in a move that stunned Silicon Valley and has led to him being ostracized by his peers.

Thiel conceded that Trump is not the perfect candidate. But after decades dominated by asset bubbles and a Washington culture that has made many Americans feel disaffected and powerless, Thiel said Trump represents a new path."

What a strange election this is. We have actually high-profile gay men like Peter Thiel and Milo Yiannopoulis rooting for the Right Cause! And rooting with a passion at that!

I guess the Right may indeed need a bit of a shake up, though I'd like that to happen without compromising our core principles. I can only speak for myself of course, but even though I appreciate support from men like Thiel and Yiannopoulos very, very much, I would, for instance, not for one moment want to give up the defense of the traditional family, a typical Rightwing battle point. Actually, just today I emailed an organization which once started as the League for Big and Young Families (BGJG) that I gave up my membership. One of the reasons I cited was that their support for gay marriage. Their paperwork sports, amongst others, a logo of two men and a kid, representing one of those fancy new formulae that have to pass for families in the 21st Century. Though in fairness, the main reason I cited was their subscribing to the Big Lie of Multiculturalism.

However, the "New Right" may indeed have to go in search for a respectful, but initially possibly awkward relationship with gays. I think that we should make it clear that we do not despise them. Even if we feel inclined to do, we should make an honest effort not to. All this is not going to be easy. But we will have to try anyway. After all, one's sexual orientation is but one facet in the huge kaleidoscope that is the field of human relations and interests. Even if gays understand that we cannot compromise on our stance regarding gay marriage and adoption, we can surely find many other fields in which cooperation is possible and highly valued. Brave men like Thiel and Yiannopoulos are actually a godsend, and the flamboyance of the latter is a bonus, in that I cannot fathom a high-profile straight rightwinger pointing the way towards cooperation in such a humorous manner.

Apart from that, Thiel suggesting the Right should look "toward a new Republican Party beyond the dogmas of Reaganism" deserves close scrutiny. As glad as I am that he has taken the brave decision to wade into this battle on our side, we should be cautious not to take all his words for granted - even though he is a tech whiz kid with a resume that makes us mere mortals blush. My IQ is far below that of Thiel, but not so that I don't see that "the dogmas of Reaganism" have actually not been applied enough. I can cite only three countries where it, or a slight variants of it, has been tried: in the US itself, in Pinochet's Chile, and in Thatcher's United Kingdom. Every time the results were solid and undisputable. The problem is that conservatives around the globe have actually betrayed, or at best neglected, the core tenets of Reaganism, as first formulated by William Buckley. Instead, those who should proudly have borne the banners of Modern Conservatism have in far too many cases listened to the siren songs of Leftism. Over time they even shamelessly parroted them and followed them, like mesmerized children following a modern day version of the Pied Piper of Hameln - to the extent that far too many so-called "rightwingers" now sound almost like leftists themselves.

In short, instead of Peter Thiel suggesting today that the New Republican Party should look "beyond the dogmas of Reaganism", I would much more have liked it if he had said "Rediscover them".

It's not that so many in the GOP have been faithful followers of Reaganism and found out that the vehicle needed tinkering.

It's rather that so many Republicans have actually BETRAYED Reaganism.

Be that as it may, you won't hear me say that the New Right doesn't need at least some cosmetic changes. And it that respect Thiel and Co may give us some advice, certainly.



Via Breitbart, October 31, 2016:

“The Clintons, that’s a crime family, basically,” Kallstrom said. “It’s like organized crime. I mean the Clinton Foundation is a cesspool.”

Kallstrom, best known for spearheading the investigation into the explosion of TWA flight 800 in the late ’90s, called Clinton a “pathological liar” and blamed Attorney General Loretta Lynch for botching the Clinton email server investigation.

“The problem here is this investigation was never a real investigation,” he said. “That’s the problem. They never had a grand jury empanelled, and the reason they never had a grand jury empanelled, I’m sure, is Loretta Lynch would not go along with that.”

“God forbid we put someone like that in the White House,” he added of Clinton.

Kallstrom blamed the FBI leadership under FBI Director James Comey as the reason the investigation was held back, but not the rest of the bureau.

“The agents are furious with what’s going on, I know that for a fact,” he said.

Actually, the fact that Clinton is still running is deep cause for concern.

I recall a quote which may or may have not come from Mark Steyn, I don't remember. This was regarding the current occupant of the White House. It went something like this:

"A nation like the US can survive an Obama. Whether a nation can survive an electorate that is willing to vote for an Obama is another matter."

A self-respecting people would have sent a pathologically power-hungry monster like Hillary Rodham Clinton, who in her long political career has basically done nothing else but harm her country (and gotten obscenely rich for it), packing a long time ago.

It's up to True Americans to block her path to power once and for all.

PI News reports that the Educational Ministry in Kiel, Schleswig-Holstein's capital [Schleswig-Holstein is one of 16 federal regions, or Laender in German; MFBB] has decreed that mosque visits for high school students are compulsory:

 photo Kiel_mosque_visit_compulsory_2016_zpsp0kldc8m.jpg

"In the case of the Rendsburger pupil, whose parents were fined for 300 EUR, because they refused to let their son visit a mosque during school classes World Orientation, there is now a shocking stance from the Educational Ministry in Kiel. It has stated that students have the obligation to visit a mosque, in the framework of Geography classes. Some other course or event in a parallel class will not be accepted. The Ministry justifies the verdict by referring to "the quintessential pedagogical purpose conform § 4 Abs. 6 Satz 1 SchulG (School Law) of Schleswig-Holstein": the school shall promote 'the openness of young people vis-à-vis cultural and religious diversity, the will to understand other peoples, and a capacity for living peaceful.' (von L.S. Gabriel)

In this particular case the mosque in question belongs to the islamo-fascistic Milli Görüs movement, which is hostile towards the Constitution. The ministry downplayed this caveat by stating that security services in their 2015 report referred to Milli Görüs "only in a footnote", because it considered 'not all the branches [of the MG movement - MFBB] - as "hostile to the Constitution" anymore, SHZ reported."

In other words, the "Verfassungsschutz" published a Load of Crap, which comes in handily for the multiculti goons at the Educational Ministry in Kiel to force a mosque visit upon Hans, Gretchen, Kurt and Monika, preferably one with salafist backers, so that they can learn firsthand how wonderful the islamic religion is.

I will tell you one thing: if my children ever receive news from their school that a mosque visit is planned, I will personally make sure that DOES NOT HAPPEN.

And I am prepared to use physical violence if that is necessary.

Everything our children need to know about islam they can learn from the non-MSM news, and it ain't pretty.
