Video of Russian Plane Being Shot Down By ISIS?

Did ISIS Blast a Russian Passenger Jet Out of the Sky?



World War III, anyone?
The Islamic State group affiliate in Egypt has claimed it downed the aircraft, but has not said how it might have done so. 
Cairo and Moscow, however, have denied any possible terrorism link in the incident, one of the deadliest Airbus crashes in the past decade. 
This evening, the prime minister's office said: 'The black box was recovered from the tail of the plane and has been sent to be analysed by experts.' 
It added that more than 45 ambulances have been dispatched to the crash site, with rescuers having recovered 129 victims' bodies so far. 
The jet, which was leased by a Russian airline and carrying package holiday passengers back to St Peterburg in northern Russia, plummeted to the ground less than 25 minutes after it took off from the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheik. 
It crashed in the Hassana area, south of Arish, officials said. 
Security forces discovered the plane wreckage in a remote mountainous area in a region containing many ISIS-affiliated terrorists. 
Ismail told reporters experts will 'start examining the information in the plane's black box, and based on this we will study the causes of the crash'. 
He also expressed scepticism about ISIS's claim that it carried out the attack in response to Russian strikes in Syria. 
The ISIS statement read: 'The soldiers of the caliphate succeeded in bringing down a Russian plane in Sinai.' 
But Islami claimed: 'Experts have affirmed that technically planes at this altitude cannot be shot down, and the black box will be the one that will reveal the reasons for the crash,' according to state news agency MENA. 
Russian transport minister Maksim Sokolov also dismissed the ISIS claims. He said: 'This information cannot be considered accurate. 
We are in close contact with our Egyptian colleagues and aviation authorities in the country. At present, they have no information that would confirm such insinuations.' 
While the use of a surface-to-air missile has been dismissed as a potential cause of the crash by officials, an on-board bomb could be a possibility.

Migrants Sing Jihadist Songs at Refugee Center – Ignorant German Volunteers Applaud



Christian migrants tell the story. Unfortunately this video is in French. Maybe someone could do a translation for us.
Leftists hold a rally to welcome tens of thousands of refugees to Germany. Migrant Muslims were seen on video singing jihadist songs at their refugee center. The ignorant German volunteers applauded. 
It’s in the air, broadcast of 14 October 2015. The Iraqi and Syrian Christians were isolated in special reception centers after being continually harassed. 
One of Iraqi Christians tells France 5: “At our previous center, volunteers were sitting listening to music, the Arabs sand jihadi songs and the German volunteers clapped their hands without understanding.” 
The image sums up the situation: the Arabs install Islamism, leftists not understanding what is happening rejoice in living together that exists only in their fantasy world. Carnage to follow.
Leftists will be the death of us.

Halloween at Infidel Bloggers Alliance: Vlad The Impaler


Vlad III reigned on and off, as Prince of Wallachia, between 1448-1476. He was born, the son of Vlad II, in Transylvania. Wishing to assert his authority in an untamed world, Vlad II had been an early believer in the rallying power of images, and, had thus, used the Dragon, symbol of Order, as the logo of his reign. The people began calling him Vlad Drakul, meaning Vlad the Devil, a name which he seemed to have liked.

When Vlad III ascended to power, he signed his name to documents, Vlad Drakulea, meaning Son of the Devil.

Yes, this Vlad III, or Vlad Drakulea, is the inspiration behind the book Dracula by Bram Stoker. And with good reason, for he seems to have been a blood-thirsty man, both literally, and figuratively. Legend has it, a favorite delicacy was bread dipped in pig's blood. Whether or not that was true, Vlad Drakulea was an extraordinarily cruel ruler. And, guess where he learned much of his cruelty from?

Yes, that's right; the Muslims.

His father's reign as Prince of Wallachia was troubled by the need to balance the competing
interests of the Hungarians of the realm with that of the invading Ottoman Empire. Vlad II chose appeasement much of the time, and thus, he was assasinated on the order of John Hunyadi, regent of Hungary.

This left Vlad III with no father, and, as those who assassinated his father did not trust his family, no throne.

In the years leading up to the assassination of his father, Vlad III had lived in Turkey and had familiarized himself with the customs, lifestyle, and military structure of the Ottoman Empire, as well as the language. Thus, when he found himself cut off from his royal lineage he turned to the Turks to help him successfully regain what he believed was rightfully his.

His reign was troubled from there on in. All told he gained and lost the throne three times, spending some years in prison during one fall from grace. One constant, though, was his reputation for cruelty. One of his nicknames was Vlad Tepes, which meant Vlad the Impaler.

The process of impaling an enemy is particularly gruesome. This, from Wikipedia is not for the fainter flowers among us:

Impalement was Dracula's preferred method of torture and execution, which he had learned in his youth as a prisoner of the Turks. It was and is one of the most gruesome ways of dying ever imagined.



Dracula usually had a horse attached to each of the victim's legs as a sharpened stake was gradually forced into the body. The end of the stake was usually oiled and care was taken that the stake not be too sharp; else the victim might die too rapidly from shock.

Normally the stake was inserted into the body through the 
anus and was often forced through the body until it emerged from the mouth. However, there were many instances where victims were impaled through other bodily orifices or through the abdomen or chest.

As expected, death by impalement was slow and painful. Victims sometimes endured for hours or days. Dracula often had the stakes arranged in various geometric patterns. The most common pattern was a ring of concentric circles in the outskirts of a city that constituted his target. The height of the spear indicated the rank of the victim. The corpses were often left decaying for months.



Vlad was known for many of the other cruel punishments he levied on his subjects. He would cut out the genitals of women who committed adultery. He once invited a large group of the sick and the lame to a big banquet, and at the culmination of the banquet, put the question to them, "Would you like to live with no care in the world?" When they answered in the affirmative, he had the doors locked and the building burned to the ground. There were no survivors. He then told his court that he had done what he had done, because he didn't want weak people in his land.

One lesson he seemed to have learned from the Turks was the hudna. For after just a few years of aligning himself with the Turks in order to establish his power, he turned on them.

The most famous scene of Vlad's life came in a battle against the Ottoman forces of one Sultan Mehmed II. Here is a description:


In the beginning of 1462, Vlad launched a campaign against the Turks along the Danube river. It was quite risky, the military force of Sultan Mehmed II being by far more powerful than the Wallachian army. However, during the winter of 1462, Vlad was very successful and managed to gain many victories. 

To punish Dracula, the Sultan decided to launch a full-scale invasion of Wallachia. Of course, his other goal was to transform this land into a Turkish province and he entered Wallachia with an army three times larger than Dracula's. 

Finding himself without allies, Vlad, forced to retreat towards Tirgoviste, burned his own villages and poisoned the wells along the way, so that the Turkish army would find nothing to eat or drink. 

Moreover, when the Sultan, exhausted, finally reached the capital city, he was confronted by a most gruesome sight: thousands of stakes held the remaining carcasses of some 20,000 Turkish captives, a horror scene which was ultimately nicknamed the "Forest of the Impaled." 

This terror tactic deliberately stage-managed by Dracula was definitely successful; the scene had a strong effect on Mehmed's most stout-hearted officers, and the Sultan, tired and hungry, admitted defeat.


Now, see, I know you were thinking to yourselves, "Since when does Pastorius do history?" The answer, of course, is rarely. But, this one is rather important, isn't it?

I'm not going to comment further. Talk among yourselves. Can't wait to hear what you have to say.

PART II


I want to be clear that I am not advocating torturing people en masse in the post below. I put myself in a bad position by declining to comment and make clear my thoughts on the antics of Vlad the Impaler.

Here are my unorganized thoughts on the war we find ourselves in.

As is true of human nature, the nature of warfare does not change as the years go by. The weapons change, the tactics change, and the battlefields change, but war stays the same. Why? Because war is a natural outgrowth of human nature.

Therefore, the thing that beat an enemy a thousand years before Christ, is the same thing that will beat an enemy today.

It is not guns, spears, rocks, or knives that beats the enemy, and, believe it or not, it is not killing the enemy that beats the enemy.

You can never kill every last one of those who oppose you. One thing the Lefties get right is War breeds more enemies. You kill one, and more will show up angry at the one you killed.

We are fighting what we think of as a 21st century war against a medieval enemy. We are using surgical strikes, GPS-mapping, and targeted bombing, all to insure that we kill as few civilians as possible. That is admirable. But, we may find that it also works against us.

We must understand that our enemy in this war has the advantage of being baptised in a Warrior Creed. Islam itself, teaches them to strike fear into the hearts of the infidel. To fight without ceasing, and to die the noble death of a martyr. Warrior Creeds teach that one should not fear dying. Instead, one should fear dishonor, humiliation, and bringing shame upon one's people.

Remember that the Japanese warriors of WWII would take a knife and plunge it into their belly, slicing themselves from groin to chest if they felt they had let their people down.

The Jihadis we are fighting against are no different.

They are Warriors because they were raised in a Warrior Culture. We were not.

Sure, we've got better hardware, but that won't win us the war. What will win us the war is to strike fear into their hearts. To shame and humiliate them.


What brings shame and humiliation upon a warrior?

Think about warrior types that you know. Think about athletes. Think about the most macho human beings you have layed eyes on in our culture. What do they fear? What causes them to lose their minds? What causes them to lose control of their emotions?

Having their manhood called into question in graphic terms. Having their woman taken away from them. Being shown to be weak. Being forced to part with their image of themselves as the most macho men you will ever lay eyes on.

A few days back I posted an excerpt from an article by an Australian Police Detective who seemed to have the right idea. He describes patrolling a Muslim neighborhood, and the fear his fellow policemen felt at having a brick hurled at their police car:


As we drove away in our marked police car, a half-brick bounced on the roof of the vehicle. The driver kept going.

I said, “What are you doing, they’ve just hit the car with a house brick!”

The young constable said, “Oh, they always do that when we drive past.”

The police were either too scared or too lazy to do anything about it. The damage bill on police cars became costly and these street terrorists grew stronger and the police became purely defensive. You see, the Police Royal Commission was about to start and the police retreated inside themselves knowing that the judicial system considered them easy targets. The police did not want to get hurt or attract Internal Affairs complaints.

Call me stupid, call me a dinosaur, but I made sure that day that at least one person in the group that threw the brick was arrested. I began by approaching the group just as that magistrate had lectured me and the other police involved in the Croydon search warrant. I simply asked who threw the brick. I was greeted with abuse and threats.

I then reverted to the old ways of policing. I grabbed the nearest male and convinced him that it was he who had thrown the brick. His brave mates did nothing. By the time we arrived at the police station, this young fool had become compliant, apologetic and so afraid that he kept crying.

You may not agree with what I did, but I paraded this goose around the police station for all the young police to see what they had become frightened of. For some months after that, police routinely rounded up the family whenever it was warranted.



That is what needs to be done to the Jihadis we are fighting. Of course, we are not allowed to broadcast the humiliation of our enemy for the world to see. It is against the Geneva Convention. But, they are allowed to broadcast the beheading of our friends and family, and our media will happily sell commercial time for us to have the privilege of watching.

What kind of sense does that make?



If we do not change our way of doing battle, I doubt that we will win. I think we will, instead, find ourselves in a kind of stalemate, until, eventually, one of their "sleeper cells" detonates a nuclear weapon in one of our cities. And then, we will act like beasts. We would probably retaliate with nuclear weapons and millions, tens of millions, or even hundreds of millions of people will die.

I do not want to see that happen.

And, that is why I brought up the subject of Vlad the Impaler. It seems to me he knew how to strike fear into the heart of his enemy. However, his weakness was that he was truly crazy. He did not go about war with the calm head of a rational being, but instead, like the Jihadis, would turn on anyone who wandered into his path at the wrong time.

We have the advantage of being rational. Now, if we would only also use our advantage in knowing how to thoroughly humiliate an enemy, as we have done time and again throughout Western history.

I am not advocating that we impale tens of thousands of Muslims. But, I am advocating that we do what we need to do to scare them out of their minds. They don't mind dying. It is humiliation that they fear.

If we need to display their gruesome dead bodies for their friends to see, then that might be a better deal than eventually resorting to WMD's, don't you think?

And, if we have to humiliate some top level Al Qaeda terrorists on international television, I don't think that would strip us of every last vestige of our humanity.

We need to get serious, or I fear we will end up being forced to become truly monstrous.

'Shell-shocked' CNBC staffers had long flight home

Nice Lipstick

From CNN:
For the CNBC employees who boarded a charter plane right after Wednesday's bruising GOP debate, the redeye flight was physically smooth but emotionally turbulent. People were exhausted, but also rattled and worried. 
"We were shell-shocked," one source said. 
The poor reviews were piling up — declaring CNBC the biggest loser of the night — and the moderators Carl Quintanilla and Becky Quick knew more would be published by the time the flight landed in New York. 
So for some flyers, it was a sleepless night. 
But there was some laughter and some liquor to lighten the mood — and some speculation about how high the ratings would be. 
At 12:30 p.m. Thursday they found out: 14 million people watched, easily making the much-derided debate the most-watched program in CNBC's 30-year history. 
Because advertisers paid $250,000 apiece, it was "also the most profitable night in the network's history," an NBCUniversal executive crowed. 
There was simultaneous crowing and cringing on Thursday. Employees who spoke on condition of anonymity for this story wished for a "do-over" and pointed fingers of blame for the chaotic production. 
Some pointed all the way up to CNBC president Mark Hoffman, who was also aboard Wednesday night's charter. 
"Everyone feels pretty embarrassed," one veteran staffer said.

Advertisements For Sam Harris' Book Banned Because They Said It Would Be Ok To Flush The Koran Down the Toilet


It's not just ok. To my mind it is preferable.

But for the record, the proposal stemmed from the time when Sam Harris debated with the ever-so-intelligent Ben Affleck on Bill Maher's TV scam, Politically Incorrect.

From the Daily Mail:
A series of billboards mocking communion biscuits and arguing it should be fine to flush to Koran down the toilet without fear of violence have been banned because they 'discriminate or vilify'. 
Prominent atheist thinker Sam Harris, who famously argued with Ben Affleck about Islam on American television earlier this year, will visit Australia on a speaking tour next year. But organisers are furious APN Outdoor won't them run the advertisements which feature quotes from Mr Harris. 
They argue: 'To reject these posters is to censor free speech - pure and simple'. 
One advertisement said people should be able to flush all books including the Islamic holy text down the toilet without fear of violent reprisals.
So offensive, huh?

For the record, here's the offending ad:

Let's see what Andy Khouri's been espousing lately

So, what has our old friend, the phony comics fan Andy Khouri - whom I'm sure knows quite well Will Eisner was critical of Islam in his last graphic novel - been tweeting recently? Well, here's several from his page in the past week or so:

But of course, Khouri cannot bring himself to admit Bill Clinton's incompetence led to 9-11.

And little Mr. Khouri is one of the most reliably stupid, conservative-hating males around too. At any and every opportunity, he'll either make you laugh or sigh at his sheer incompetence and overall disdain for humanity.

If only Mr. Khouri would rethink his take on righties. Now, what's this he says about Bill Kristol:


That Saddam used fear and murder to maintain power in his time doesn't bother a non-entity like Khouri, alas.

Tacit belief by males like Khouri is that Muslim women victimized by honor murders are less valuable, ditto gays and lesbians murdered under Islamofascism.

Correction: that's why males like Khouri can turn their backs on serious issues like the Koran's darkest content. They really believe it's no big deal.

We may not think Kristol's a saint - indeed, he's not - but neither do we think Khouri's babble should be taken at face value.

Egyptian woman’s dire warning to America: ‘Wake up, or be wiped out’

Conducting Jihad

From Liberty Unyielding:
An Egyptian woman writing under the pen name Magda Borham has composed a lengthy letter to Western countries, warning them of the immediate danger posed by Islamic invasion via “immigration.” 
Having lived in Egypt for more than thirty years, she states, 
“Nobody else in the world knows Islam and the mentality of Muslims more than those who have suffered by having Islam as a part of their life. If you listen to the cries of the Copts of Egypt, the Christians of Syria, Iraq, Sudan, Pakistan and all the other Muslim countries you will hear the descriptions of the horrors of Islam. 
See and feel the tears of the minorities in every Islamic society. These tears will tell you the true stories of Islam. Hear the blood of the ex-Muslims pounding. It’s their blood that is shouting out every single second asking the rest of the world to “Wake up!”

UK: Terror threat is the highest I’ve ever seen,’ says MI5 chief

Britain faces an unprecedented terror threat from Islamic State and Al Qaeda fanatics plotting ‘mass casualty’ attacks over the internet, the head of MI5 warned last night.
In a rare public speech, Andrew Parker said the Security Service thwarted six UK terror attacks in the past year and several overseas.
But he warned: ‘We can never be confident of stopping everything.’
The director-general of MI5 said the threat from jihadis was on a scale he had never seen in his 32-year career.
And he warned there was now a ‘greater ambition’ among terrorists to carry out mass casualty attacks in Britain as the threat showed ‘no sign of abating’.
‘It may not yet have reached the high water mark,’ he said.
In only his third speech since taking up the job in 2013, Mr Parker said terrorists were using a ‘bewildering array of devices and digital platforms’ to plot attacks, admitting MI5 had to carry out computer hacking against terror groups to access their communication networks.
He said internet firms also had an ‘ethical responsibility’ to help tackle terrorism.

13-year-old stabber influenced by Hamas

The knifer who, along with his cousin, stabbed a boy in Pisgat Zeev, turns out to be under Hamas influence:
An indictment was filed Friday morning against Ahmed Manasra, the 13-year-old Palestinian boy responsible for a stabbing attack that wounded two Israelis in Pisgat Ze'ev earlier this month.

According to the charge, the minor and his 15-year-old cousin were drawn to act violently in an act of martyrdom with the intent of killing Jews.

The indictment said the 13-year-old identified with Hamas and the plight of the Palestinian people in Gaza and the West Bank.

Manasra denied the claims being charged against him when speaking to authorities earlier this month.

"I was with my cousin, but I didn't stab anyone," he told authorities. "I even pleaded with him not to stab anyone. I didn't want to go through with it even though at first we left the house with the intention of stabbing Jews. This was after my cousin persuaded me to come with him. I was just afraid."

His claims contradicted his initial statements made to the authorities soon after his arrest, when he said that he and his cousin wanted to stab Jews in response to a perceived violation of the status quo on Temple Mount.

CCTV footage released by the Israel Police showed the two cousins chasing a terrified Israeli man who they just stabbed in Jerusalem’s Pisgat Ze’ev neighborhood, before giving up and looking for a new victim.

The teenage terrorists can then be seen running with their knives still drawn toward a candy store that a Jewish boy exits to get on his bicycle.

Seconds later, Ahmed and his accomplice are seen stabbing him in the neck, critically wounding him.

After falling to the ground, the Jewish boy is kicked by one of his assailants, before the Palestinian teens flee the scene when a male store patron gives chase.

Ahmed was run down by a vehicle moments later.
And he deserved it. He should know that with such massive evidence on video tape, he cannot talk his way out of this.

On a related note, the Knesset's education committee has panned Islamic schools' incitement:
A Knesset Education, Culture and Sport Committee meeting on incitement in Palestinian schools and media grew heated Wednesday, with Arab MKs saying the discussion was Israeli propaganda.

Palestinian Media Watch director Itamar Marcus presented his organization’s report on Palestinian Authority education, which assessed the prominent educational messages that could impact peace with Israel.

The report documents that in formal and informal educational frameworks, killers of Israelis are portrayed as heroes and role models, and that children are taught that Israel will eventually be replaced by “Palestine.”

At least 25 Palestinian Authority schools are named after terrorists; three are named after Dalal Mughrabi, who led the most lethal terrorist attack in Israeli history in 1978, killing 37 civilians, 12 of them children.

Marcus showed the MKs a film from PA television, in which a student expressed pride “to attend the Dalal Mughrabi School, which bears this pioneering name,” and another student said her “life’s ambition is to reach the level that the martyr fighter Dalal Mughrabi reached.”

Another clip from televised news in the PA showed a boy saying he learned in school to “fight the Jews, kill them and defeat them,” and another told children that Jews are “Satan with a tail.”

The report also contains chapters on incitement in Palestinian textbooks, educational materials glorifying Hitler, and the PA policy of blocking joint peace-building activities between Palestinian and Israeli children.

Marcus explained that the messages Palestinian children are receiving are nationalist – that Israel is not legitimate on any borders and its existence since 1948 is an occupation – and anti-Semitic – that Jews are evil by nature, descendants of monkeys and pigs, and fated to be killed by Muslims.
I would just disagree about "nationalism" here, not just because there's never been a "palestinian people" of Arabic/Islamic background, but also because teaching evil isn't something real nationalists should do. To truly qualify for your own country, you can't give an education built on hatred, murder and destruction.

And in another related note, the IDF's had to expand security checks to Hebron:
As part of a comprehensive course of action designed to contain the ongoing security crisis rocking Israel and the West Bank, Israel Security Forces were instructed Friday to seal off certain Palestinian neighborhoods in Hebron in order to better conduct security operations and searches throughout the area.

According to the IDF, new security checks will be implemented gradually to help deter terror attacks.

Dubbed operation "Breathing Closure," one of the plan's new directives is to limit the movement of Palestinians from entering and exiting Jewish communities in Hebron, which has been an epicenter of recent violent terror attacks.

Restrictions also apply to Palestinians between the ages of 15-25; Palestinian students who leave their communities in order to attend class will now be subjected to more extensive security checks.
It's all for good reasons that this is being done.

Muslims, Islam, Free Speech, Sweden


From the Vlad Tepes Blog:


Fast forward to today as we near the end of October. A new story has broken on the international news wire and it’s about one of these supposedly “nonexistent” no go zones. Valentina Xhaferi, a journalist in Sweden, was attempting to report on a story about police in Stockholm being pelted with rocks any time they came near to a Muslim no go zone in a subub of the city called Tensta. Apparently, more than 70% of the people living in Tensta today are foreign born and the vast majority of the locals are Muslim.
The journalist and her cameraman had just finished setting up their equipment and were preparing to begin an interview with a local who had agreed to speak, when another man approached and angrily asked why they were filming. After a terse conversation he stormed off, but returned a few minutes later with a gang of Muslim men.
“Then he became very, very angry and said he’ll get stones and show us what stoning is. When I saw that he was armed with a stone I just wanted to get out of there,” the journalist told Swedish media. Around this time more men appeared out of the subway and joined in the fray. Fortunately, the camera was recording the entire event and even captured the moment that the men attacked, kicking the camera to the floor and shouting insults at the journalist and throwing hot coffee on her cameraman.

Jihad packets


From Tammy Swofford at the Daily Times:
The intelligence sector remains hard at work. Jihadi sites are scrubbed, some sites monitored and others are acquired, and used as honey pots. But with the advent of Twitter, infection is spiking November of 2008: The Conficker worm emerged from the cocoon of her creator and infected her first computer. 
The dynamic of infiltration and subsequent growth of a massive botnet astounded those who followed Conficker’s movements and upgrades. Hassen Saidi (PhD in computer studies) was one of the many researchers involved in studying the worm. He dissected the various strains of the worm. His analysis provided insight into the progression of the Conficker infection. 
Within a month of the initial digital incursion, 1.5 million computers in 195 countries were compromised. In the world of computers, malware is compressed into small data packets for rapid dissemination across the internet. Malware is also shielded with self-protective measures to avoid detection. 
When the Conficker worm made an initial appearance it barely registered any activity. But for those tasked with monitoring the same, the stakes were high. The behaviour of the Conficker worm provides an uncanny parallel with the manner in which jihad recruitment moves forward with the delivery of tiny packets of information. 
The stakes are incredibly high in this line of work. Tracking is 24/7 by the alphabet security agencies. When a jihad malware infection occurs the recipient may register minimal online presence. An observable digital footprint can still obscure movement towards an operational attack. Semper Vigilans. 
Observing the object code and electrical charges (translate: emotional charges) associated with jihad recruitment, code never ceases to amaze me. The host for a malware infection is not only a programmable machine. Incursions with greater complexity are in flux. The 21st century host resides within a small space known as the human skull. 
The combination of a mind, free will and human emotion provide multiple avenues for agitation propaganda, exploitation and adaptation of the subject. During the early years after 9/11, the malware activity at work on human brains increased significantly via internet jihad forums. 
My daily leapfrog across jihad portals gave me the ability to monitor the emotional pulse generated from the sites. This activity within the sites was not yet infecting within the tens of millions. But, over a period of months, there was the steady appearance of a remote thread injection — a hidden code — that executed itself within a legitimate address. 
That remote thread was based on an understanding of hadith and the historical battles of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). My own intellectual ability to follow along required immersion studies into the tiny data packets of information known as hadith and their smaller packets known as isnd and matn (chain of transmitters and text, respectively).

FIGHT ‘CLIMATE CHANGE’ WITH HORMONE TREATMENTS ON SMALL CHILDREN


From Instapundit:

FIGHT ‘CLIMATE CHANGE’ WITH HORMONE TREATMENTS ON SMALL CHILDREN — ‘CLOSES THE GROWTH PLATES’ TO STUNT THEIR GROWTH. Professor Liao says shrinking humans helps fight climate change since ‘larger people consume more energy than smaller people.’

But as Obama’s “Science” “Czar” might ask, why all the half measures, when a much more, well, final solution, for want of a better phrase, suggests itself?

Muslim Nuclear Power Plant Worker Caught Studying Bomb Making While At Work


A WORKER at a Scots nuclear power plant has been allegedly caught studying bomb-making websites at work.

Muslim preacher jailed after cops find invoice for £18 MILLION of ammunition on his mobile phone



Muslim preacher jailed after cops find invoice for £18 MILLION of ammunition on his mobile phone
An imam who was found in the back of a lorry in Dover has been jailed after police discovered an invoice for £18million worth of ammunition on his mobile phone. 
Abdurraouf Eshati, 29, was sentenced to six years in prison today after he pleaded guilty to terrorism and immigration offences. 
Eshati, who lived in a mosque in Wrexham where he sometimes led prayers, was one of 20 people discovered in a lorry heading for France on November 30 last year. 
On his mobile phone, police found a $28.5million (£18.6million) invoice from an arms supplier for the sale and delivery of 1,100 tonnes of ammunition to Libya. 
His phone also held a document about chartering a cargo jet for $250,000 (£163,000) for use in the North African country.

Agency won’t give GOP internal docs on climate research

The Scientific Method Is Top Secret 

From The Hill:
The federal government’s chief climate research agency is refusing to give House Republicans the detailed information they want on a controversial study on climate change. 
Citing confidentiality concerns and the integrity of the scientific process, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) said it won’t give Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas) the research documents he subpoenaed. 
At the center of the controversy is a study that concluded there has not been a 15-year “pause” in global warming. Some NOAA scientists contributed to the report. 
Skeptics of climate change, including Smith, have cited the pause to insist that increased greenhouse gas emissions, mostly from burning fossil fuels, are not heating up the globe.   
Smith, the chairman of the House Science Committee, vehemently disagreed with the study’s findings. He issued a subpoena for communications among the scientists and some data, leading to charges from Democrats that he was trying to intimidate the researchers. 
Late Tuesday, NOAA provided Smith with some more information about its methods and data but refused to give Smith everything he wanted. 
NOAA spokeswoman Ciaran Clayton said the internal communications are confidential and not related to what Smith is trying to find out.

Donald Trump - A Great Communicator

Often there is not much substance***.

But the dude knows how to get his point across.



*** Saying that Trump's answers often lack substance is somewhat unfair, given the Cage Match tactics of Carl Quintanilla the clown-faced boy, and his fellow CNBC tabloid-weasel Leftists.

The RNC Clutches The Reins


Remember when, months ago, Donald Trump said something about the nomination process having to be fair, or he'd give the GOP a lot of grief? The process hasn't been fair for a long time, and we're fooling ourselves if we think otherwise.

From Time:
...RNC Chairman Reince Priebus announced a 13-member committee of Republican officials who will set rules for the GOP’s debates during the 2016 cycle, including selecting venues, debate partners, and even moderators. The committee will be led by Priebus ally Steve Duprey of New Hampshire, who was close to both Mitt Romney and John McCain. The committee is dominated by Priebus loyalists.

[...]

Any candidate who participates in a debate that is unsanctioned by the RNC’s committee will be barred from appearing in any of the authorized debates, according to the party’s rules.

The RNC debate committee has yet to determine the qualification standards for candidates to earn a spot on the stage.
Shall we take bets as to whether or not Reince Priebus and Karl Rove are best buddies? See Gestapo Cartel Of Karl Rove, Reince Priebus, and Establishment Republicans.

In my view, Marco Rubio won the GOP debate on October 28, 2015.

I have to ask myself, "Is Marco Rubio now the establishment's anointed one?" I have reason to believe that the GOP establishment has been moving in that direction for at least a few weeks at the realization that Jeb Bush is a failed candidate.

Culture Clash: How ISIS Could Send Europe Over the Edge


This is a very worthwhile - and longish - article. It begins with a detailed analysis of the forces in the Islamic world that are driving the refugee crisis. And ends with an analysis of how the crisis is and will effect Europe.

Have fun.

From the Fiscal Times:
For the past two years, thousands of refugees from the Middle East, Africa and South Asia have risked their lives in dangerous boat trips across the Mediterranean to Greece, Italy and Spain. More than 6,300 of them have died. By last summer, Europe began to feel the crisis.   
About one-third of the 710,000 illegal immigrants that have landed in Europe this year are Syrians. This number is much higher than the 282,000 immigrants that arrived in 2014. Afghans, Iraqis and others also entered Europe – with 220,000 headed to Germany. 
The European Union and Germany in particular are facing a situation that none of them is ready to face. Unlike the United States, where immigration is a major part of the American success story, Europe does not have the long tradition of integration. 
While available social services could last for many years, immigrants and refugees often live in areas that host other refugees. True integration within a society is hard to achieve. Since the European migration crisis started a few months ago, inter-European relations have been damaged. 
The landmark Schengen Agreement that created a border-less Europe now appears passé. Several European countries have built border structures to stop the flow of refugees. Others have closed their borders, forcing the refugees to change their routs to Germany and Sweden. 
"If we don't find a solution today, if we don't do everything we can today, then it is the end of the European Union as such," Slovenia Prime Minister Miro Cerar told reporters. Sixty-thousand refugees crossed Slovenia in the last few weeks.
... But what if the current trend continues or worsens? In September, 170,000 illegal immigrants entered the E.U. What if the 710,000 immigrants so far in 2015 become 1.5 million by the end of the year, as many predict? The 170,000 refugees in September were a slight decrease from 190,000 in August. But this trend was reversed last week when 50,000 refugees entered Greece, breaking all past records. 
A slowing in the E.U.'s recovery from its worst unemployment crisis and weaker German economic growth could be the outcome of the migration crisis. Combined with the slowing Chinese economy, the European migration crisis could endanger the fragile recovery in the U.S. following the 2008 financial crisis.
ISIS has become a terror hurricane, attracting tens of thousands of extremists across the globe, at the same time destroying the fabric of countries, societies and cultures. It has emerged as the most dangerous hub of intolerance and hate since the Nazis. 
New data has shown that the U.S.-led campaign has failed to weaken ISIS, let alone crush it. As many as 30,000 foreign fighters joined the group, according to the CIA. ISIS is taking in about $50 million a month by selling oil, and has launched more than 1,000 attacks between June 1 and September 30, killing about 3,000 people around the world, according to HIS Jane’s Terrorism and Insurgency Center. This is a 40 percent increase from the previous three months. 
Finally, a report from a House taskforce on homeland security said that ISIS has inspired or directed 60 terror plots in the West, including in the U.S., according to a report by the House committee on homeland security. 
The resurgence of ISIS and the Taliban in Afghanistan, the bankruptcy of the Iraqi government, the Russian direct military involvement in Syria, the rise of al-Qaeda amidst the continuous war in Yemen, the exploitation and ongoing suppression of the Muslim Brotherhood by ISIS in Egypt, and the expansion of ISIS amid the Libyan civil war are all parts of a lost Arab spring in the Middle East. This may be the darkest part of President Obama's foreign affairs record. These crises will be the inheritance of the next American president in January 2017. 
And the Middle East is not the only part of the world that is experiencing increasing instability and driving refugees to Europe. Other hot spots include: 
  • The desperate situation in Somalia where ISIS issued four propaganda videos to urge the Shabab militia to switch alliance from al-Qaeda.
  • Ongoing war in Darfur region in Sudan.
  • War with Boko Haram, ISIS's African franchise in Nigeria where President Obama has sent 300 US soldiers.
  • Poverty in Bangladesh amid the emergence of ISIS.
  • The Taliban insurgency in Pakistan.
  • Resumption of Turkey's war against the Kurdish rebels.
  • The bad economic situation in Albania and Kosovo.
As moderate Muslims and other groups migrate to Europe, the Middle East loses the human capital --potentially talented men and, yes, women -- necessary to build modern economies and become part of a global society. 
Whatever the real goals of the Islamic State, one inevitable result of their actions, should they prevail, will be isolation. 
Europe, already struggling to accept Muslims and other immigrants into their societies, will have an enormous challenge welcoming a new influx of Muslim refugees. 
According to recent reports, there is increasing conflict between citizens and newly arrived immigrants in Germany, the country of choice for many refugees. 
Sweden has another problem. It’s one of the most generous countries in terms of its immigration policies offering cash and social services to all newcomers. But Sweden has also seen the rise of criminal gangs and more violent crime in ethnic areas. 
As a result, the country is becoming less tolerant racially. In a recent poll, 58 percent of Swedes believe there’s too much immigration. Ominously, 48 percent of immigrants don’t work. Maybe that’s why Denmark is discouraging new immigrants. 
France and England have their own issues. The terror attack on the employees of Charlie Hebdo, which killed 12, exposed a fault line in France’s national security. Like Sweden, Britain has a rape problem that includes exploitation of children. And like Germany, there are Muslim areas where many crimes go unreported.Europe has never truly integrated its immigrants. You’re French or you’re not; you’re British or you’re not, and so on. 
As a result, outsiders are marginalized, whether they’re guest workers in Germany or refugees in France. This new group immigrants could tip the balance on multiple levels—for jobs, for social welfare resources, for housing and food, and ultimately for safety. 
If that happens, what is now just a small tear in the social fabric could rip Europe apart.
