Goede nacht. Except for all you ludicrous women out there who thought they should protest The Donald becoming POTUS, when YOUR champion threatened a rape victim by her hubby into silence, amongst others, and out there 800 million muslim women have to live under the yoke of the most mysoginistic belief system the world ever witnessed AND THAT AIN'T WORTH PROTESTING. I hope you all have your period starting tonight and that it lasts till the next one. Brainless twats.

Update: follow the Inauguration live here:

First an Inaugural speech by Jon Voight, an honest man, a decent man, a great actor and a True American:

Counting down... almost 2pm here in Belgium. Four hours to go.

In 2004, I figured out who Barack Obama was.

One of the founders of this very blog mentioned a speech by a certain Barack Obama and how she was impressed by it.

I checked it out. That speech was called 'The Audacity of Hope'.

I started reading the transcript.

After 30 seconds I had enough.

And I had basically made up my mind about Barack Obama. I haven't had to change it ever since.

I completely and utterly failed to see what was so great about him or his 'message'.

This feeling was so crystal-clear to me that I was sure he stood no chance in US politics.

But three years later, in early 2007, when I realized how much his campaign was gaining momentum, I warned against the possibility of this slick, unreliabe poseur becoming President of the United States.

Below is a screenshot from my post, dated February 13, 2007. Ten years ago:

Unfortunately, the impossible happened. In 2008, that same Barack Obama was elected POTUS. It was the beginning of an eight year long nightmare.

We are 2017 now, and much has changed for the worse. How hollow, dishonest and ludicrous do the soundbites of this crook now sound. Do you remember this one, from the Democrat primaries in 2008:

“Generations from now, we will be able to tell our children that this was the moment. . . that the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal.”

Let's hope that the video proving he did utter this insane statement stays up for a loooong time:

What an immense fool. And how about this? From a campaign event in July 2008:

“The problem is, is that the way Bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion dollars for the first 42 presidents -- number 43 added $4 trillion dollars by his lonesome, so that we now have over $9 trillion dollars of debt that we are going to have to pay back -- $30,000 for every man, woman and child.”

Said the guy who singlehandedly DOUBLED the national debt! It now stands at 19.7 trillion, how unpatriotic is that?? Here's hoping too that the following video won't disappear soon either:

Anyway, America's now got a chance to put things right again. It's clear that, while the new Trump Administration brings real hope in spades, the challenges it faces are enormous. Also, Americans should keep harboring a degree of weariness re Donald Trump. Because despite his almost unbroken string of personal successes and endeavors throughout his life, a magician he is not. And a messiah either. While I am glad beyond belief that on November 8, 2016 the US dodged a bullet - an artillery shell might be a better description - in not electing Clinton, the Trump Administration just might introduce policies that would raise the eyebrows of even the staunchest The Donald supporter. I am now thinking of nepotism e.g.. And after all Mr Trump's heavy talking about restricting imports, I am thinking too of the disastrous effects of the Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act of 1930, also brought about by Republicans.

However, I remain fairly optimistic as to the chances that 2017 will bring about real change for the good for the US AND for the world. The very fact that the media hate Mr Trump so much, and will scrutinize his every step with a magnifying glass, will by itself act as a safeguard against the unhealthy practice of concentrating too much power in the hands of relatives.

Also, Mr Trump being after all a very successful businessman, I cannot imagine that he would keep pursuing policies which after time would reveal themselves to harm the interests of his country, and by extension those of the Free World.

So indeed, tomorrow, Friday the 19th, 2017, might just be the start of a new, better era.

Today was the usurper and impostor's last day in the White House. It is good and just that he has been booted out. I would very much have liked that he was booted out four years ago, but alas. I would have liked even better that he never made it into that grand old building, the very symbol of values Obama, in fact, loathed. In his last days in power, this vile man has frantically tried to inflict even further damage to the country he was supposed to serve. He knocked off the American taxpayer another 500 million dollar to shore up the ludicrous 'Green Climate Fund', a pet project concocted at a warmist summit in Paris in 2015, which foolishly "aims to keep global warming “well below” 2C and aspires to keep warming to 1.5C".

On 19 January 2009, President George W Bush commuted the sentences of José Alonso Compeán and Ignacio Ramos, US Border Patrol agents who had been convicted of shooting and injuring drug trafficker Osvaldo Aldrete Dávila, who was caught with 400 kilograms of drugs. By contrast, Barack Obama released... Oscar Lopez Rivera, an FALN communist terrorist who in 1981 was convicted of planting 130+ bombs in American cities which killed 5 Americans and injured several others. And as a final FUCK YOU to the US, he also released ten Guantanamo terrorists, of which at least 9 remain committed to harm America, its armed forces, and its citizens.

It is therefore good and just that we say goodbye to this Loathsome Creature, as Nigel Farage described Obama so aptly, with the same words once uttered by a man I actually do not hold in high regard at all, Oliver Cromwell, but they just happen to be words which are nevertheless extremely fitting:


I'm always reluctant to use the name of the Creator lightly. But I somehow feel that this time, on this occasion, it's OK.

Via Breitbart, January 14, 2017:

"Monsignor Carlo Liberati, Archbishop Emeritus of Pompeii, said that Islam will soon become Europe’s main religion thanks to the huge number of Muslim migrants alongside the increasing secularism of native Europeans.

Speaking to Italian Catholic journal La Fede Quotidiana, the archbishop said: “In 10 years we will all be Muslims because of our stupidity. Italy and Europe live in a pagan and atheist way, they make laws that go against God and they have traditions that are proper of paganism.

“All of this moral and religious decadence favours Islam.”

“We have a weak Christian faith,” he added. “The Church nowadays does not work well and seminaries are empty.

“Parishes are the only thing still standing. We need a true Christian life. All this paves the way to Islam. In addition to this, they have children and we do not. We are in full decline.”

The archbishop added that the problem is not just Muslim immigration. The number of Eastern Europeans arriving over the past few years has also hit the quality of life for native Italians, he said.

“We help without delay those coming from outside and we forget many poor and old Italians who are eating from the trash,” the archbishop said. “We need policies that take care of Italians first: our young people and the unemployed.

“I am a protester. If I were not a priest, I’d be out there demonstrating in the squares. What is the point of so many migrants that instead of thanking for the food we give them, they just throw it, spend hours with their cell phones and even organise riots?”

It's too bad, really too bad, that it's a Monsignor like Carlo Liberati who's the Archbishop Emeritus, and a deluded SJW like Jorge Mario Bergoglio who's Pope.

Via the great man's own website, Jan 11, 2017:

"The FBI reported that the total number of homicides in 2015 was 15,696. Blacks were about 52 percent of homicide victims. That means about 8,100 black lives were ended violently, and over 90 percent of the time, the perpetrator was another black. Listening to the news media and the Black Lives Matter movement, one would think that black deaths at the hands of police are the major problem. It turns out that in 2015, police across the nation shot and killed 986 people. Of that number, 495 were white (50 percent), 258 were black (26 percent) and 172 Hispanic (17 percent). A study of 2,699 fatal police killings between 2013 and 2015, conducted by John R. Lott Jr. and Carlisle E. Moody of the Crime Prevention Research Center, demonstrates that the odds of a black suspect’s being killed by a black police officer were consistently greater than a black suspect’s getting killed by a white officer. Politicians, race hustlers and the news media keep such studies under wraps because these studies don’t help their narrative about racist cops.

The homicide victim is not the only victim, whether he is a criminal or not, for there are mourning loved ones. No one ever fully recovers from having a son, daughter, husband, mother or father murdered. Murder is not the only crime that takes a heavy toll on the black community. Blacks are disproportionately represented as victims in every category of violent crime — e.g., forcible rape, robbery and aggravated assault.

Today’s level of lawlessness and insecurity in many black communities is a relatively new phenomenon. In the 1930s, ’40s and ’50s, people didn’t bar their windows. Doors were often left unlocked. People didn’t go to bed with the sounds of gunshots. What changed everything was the liberal vision that blamed crime on poverty and racial discrimination. Academic liberals and hustling politicians told us that to deal with crime, we had to deal with those “root causes.” Plus, courts began granting criminals new rights that caused murder and other violent crime rates to skyrocket. The liberals’ argument ignores the fact that there was far greater civility in black neighborhoods at a time when there was far greater poverty and discrimination.

 photo walter_williams_zpsjr64chde.jpgThe presence of criminals, having driven many businesses out, forces residents to bear the costs of shopping outside their neighborhoods. Fearing robberies, taxi drivers — including black drivers — often refuse to do home pickups in black neighborhoods and frequently pass up black customers hailing them. Plus, there’s the insult associated with not being able to receive pizza or other deliveries on the same terms as people in other neighborhoods.

In low-crime neighborhoods, FedEx, UPS and other delivery companies routinely leave packages that contain valuable merchandise on a doorstep if no one is at home. That saves the expense of redelivery or recipients from having to go pick up the packages. In low-crime communities, supermarket managers may leave plants, fertilizer and other home and garden items outdoors, often unattended and overnight. They display merchandise at entryways and exits. Where there is less honesty, supermarkets cannot use all the space that they lease, and hence they are less profitable. In high-crime neighborhoods, delivery companies leaving packages at the door and supermarkets leaving goods outside unattended would be equivalent to economic suicide.

Politicians who call for law and order are often viewed negatively, but poor people are the most dependent on law and order. In the face of high crime or social disorder, wealthier people can afford to purchase alarm systems, buy guard dogs, hire guards and, if things get too bad, move to a gated community. These options are not available to poor people. The only protection they have is an orderly society.

Ultimately, the solution to high crime rests with black people. Given the current political environment, it doesn’t pay a black or white politician to take those steps necessary to crack down on lawlessness in black communities."
