Mayor Of European Town Begins ‘Brutal Crackdown on Muslim Migrants’; Video Shows Bounty Hunters Chasing Migrants On Horses


Bounty hunters chasing immigrants on horses, 
a 110-mile razor fence 
and bans on new mosques

From the Daily Mail:
He’s been true to his word. His team of bounty hunters have caught hundreds of immigrants trying to make it into Hungary, on the way to neighbouring Austria and beyond, on the so-called Balkan smuggling route. 
The man’s name is Laszlo Toroczkai, a charismatic 45-year-old mayor who has made it his life’s work to prevent what he calls the destruction of his country. 
He has introduced a zero-tolerance policy against all migrants, saying that the very future of Europe is at stake because of people he calls Muslim ‘invaders’ and ‘future terrorists’, and has vowed to stop this movement of people. 
‘It is very important for the village to preserve its traditions,’ he says. ‘We can see large Muslim communities in western Europe that haven’t been able to integrate — and we don’t want to have the same experience here.’ 
He has announced new rules for the town he runs, and wants the rest of Hungary to follow suit, banning the building of mosques, making the Muslim call to prayer illegal, and banning the burqa and the ‘burkini’ swimsuit. He says the measures are key to preventing Muslims ‘causing fear, alarm and shock among the locals’.

WAITING FOR HITLER: Social Justice Warrior Campaigns As Cargo Cult


Every Conservative is Hitler and a racist. Every single Conservative of National standing. George Bush. Mitt Romney. Paul Ryan. Donald Trump.

Every single one. It really doesn't matter what they actually stand for. They are Racist Hitlers

I wrote to a friend of mine asking what might seem like a stupid question: WHY?

Here's my question as it was phrased:
I have been wondering about the repetition of the everything-GOP-is-racist meme, and the Dead White Men meme, and then Bushitler/Trump is Hitler/Romney is Hitler meme. I am starting to believe that the net effect of the Government-Media/Academia Complex is everyone sees themselves as a big part of a moral-tragedy play which takes place on the stage of life and history. And their part in the play is to locate and exterminate the next Hitler, 
because you know, Hitler. 
The islanders had recognized that there was some connection between people sitting in control towers 
and the arrival of cargo beyond their wildest dreams.
---
They don't really know the history. They only know HItler is bad. And there will be another Hitler, and we don't want that to happen. AND NOTHING COULD BE MORE EXCITING THAN FINDING HITLER AND KILLING HIM. 
We would exercise demons, kill the goat, and societies evils would be expunged and we would all be free. But it's not just a big Pagan sacrifice (though it is that - in fact isn't it all a little like Islam's Stoning the Devil ritual before they enter into the gates of Mecca?). But it's also just a kind of History play for fun, kind of like TV. 
What do you think? I'm guessing there has been a lot written on this subject, right? Any suggestions?
HERE'S HIS ANSWER:
Modern SJW campaigns are like cargo-cults. Cargo-cults were supposedly primitive islanders where the US setup a temporary military base and supplies came in, then the US left but the natives still wanted chocolate bars and sneakers, so they built a facsimile of an airstrip hoping more planes would come. 
The moral of the story is supposed to be that they didn't understand the deep function and meaning or context of an airstrip, just the surface appearance of the thing, and they hoped that a resemblance would be enough. 
SJW campaigns are nowadays like cargo-cults because they all involve trying to repeat the surface appearance (but not really the deep meaning) of some big romanticized 'struggle' from the past, with no deep understanding or knowledge of what's being done or why, and still hoping the outcome will be similarly heroic. 
So for example, in the '60s it's true that civil rights for blacks was a big worthwhile struggle, and it's romanticized in media and schools like you say, and this leads to young normal white people daydreaming about 'what if I was there BUT I ACTED CORRECTLY' and being celebrated like a savior. Because after all, the steady drumbeat message everyone gets is that's what heroism is, and young normal people fantasize about being heroes. 
The only serious, culturally-approved heroism model anyone is given anymore (outside of maybe sports) has to do with standing up to racists or whatever. So 'idealistic' action-oriented young people look for opportunities to do that, but there really aren't any anymore. Instead what you get is dumbass campaigns to force bakers to bake wedding cakes, or people ganging up on someone on twitter and trying to get him fired for tweeting the wrong tweet.

A Smear(?) verges on Fake News and then attacks Ben Franklin(?) in Fascist-izing Bannon

We are in a world of stupidity.
Hey @RadioFreeTom (Tom NIchols) … loved your book, but the people creating this trail are also purportedly some kind of experts, and it apparently falls to the readers to figure out if they are expert Edward R Murrow’s or an instant replay of the pissing contest between Hearst and Pulitzer
This morning in RealClear Policy we have an article, which actually appears in the (semi-hard left) Atlantic, quoting the (openly anti-Trump) Politico in an expression of words designed to enshrine as accepted science that Steve Bannon, who, as we ‘all know (wink wink)’, is the real power in the WH hates democracy. Not only that, he now ‘leads’ an ‘anti-democracy movement’ in the White House

Atlantic article HERE
Politico article HERE
So we have a SINGLE SENTENCE (in Politico) based on an un-named source that Bannon has through ANONYMOUS intermediaries talked to some blogger who thinks democracies fail which became the seed of the anti American anti democracy movement in the White House which if this is all true will shortly find itself, no doubt, on double secret probation before their next road trip to the covert and well camouflaged alt-right lair somewhere between Montgomery and Pascagoula which will be protected by immense crosses and copies of the Talmud or some other talisman.
Oh well, here’s a flash. Democracies have failed for 2,500 years. Athens, anyone?
But the other side of the coin is Ben Franklin, who also had little respect for democracies, as opposed to what we live in.
A REPUBLIC

Not satisfied with THAT level of crap however, we have Vocativ publishing a PPP (demo polling outfit) displaying a poll showing nearly half of Trump voters want a white history month, and half of American voters want Trump impeached due to the manifest crimes he has committed in the last 20 days.
Of course the PPP poll doesn’t ask if voters would favor a Chinese History Month, an Indian History Month, a Native American History Month, a Japanese …. well, you get the idea.
Asking this question without asking if other ‘history months ‘ are in the mix, or NO HISTORY month’s allowed is a fixed political smear designed to make Trump voters appear racist (never mind that Politico and Atlantic had already made them allies of anti democratic fascists).
Personally, I think it’s HISTORY, and teachers/professors should have the reasonable leeway to teach all portions of all of that.
I think if you read the poll results and bear Rasmussen’s in mind at the same time you get a pretty fair idea of PPP’s sampling.
Just another day SHOVELING SHIT
Frankly, I’d rather dig out shows by Amy Sherman-Palladino and binge. It’s just as realistic, as ‘non-fiction’ after all, and the Marines out at the pointy edge of the spear agreed – what they were fighting for anyway? Stars Hollow, Connecticut (which ironically, is also the same place as Bluebell, AL  in real life – actually Pt Clear-Alabama).

Georgetown Islamic Studies Professor: Slavery OK, So is Non-Consensual Sex

Culture of Rape

From Heat Street:
A professor at Georgetown University is teaching his students that men do not need consent to have sex with women, and that slavery is justifiable under Islamic teachings. 
Islamic Studies professor Jonathan Brown recently lectured at the International Institute of Islamic Thought, where he shared his alarming beliefs with students in attendance in his lecture, “Islam and the Problem of Slavery.” 
Freelance writer Umar Lee expressed his shock over the 90-minute lecture, which included explicit endorsements of rape and slavery. 
Brown himself uploaded the lecture to YouTube.

A POTUS Dad Defends His Daughter (1950)

From the blog Geeez:
Ivanka’s insulted and Dad steps in…..And it’s been done BEFORE!

When President Harry Truman picked up his “Washington Post” early on December 6, 1950, to read a review of his daughter Margaret Truman’s singing performance, he was livid. Though conceding that Miss Truman was “extremely attractive,” Paul Hume, the “Post’s” music critic, stated bluntly that “Miss Truman cannot sing very well” and “has not improved” over the years. The president wrote the following letter to the 34-year old Hume, whom he compared to the columnist Westbrook Pegler (“a rat,” in Truman’s view).

THE WHITE HOUSE
WASHINGTON

Mr Hume:

I’ve just read your lousy review of Margaret’s concert. I’ve come to the conclusion that you are an “eight ulcer man on four ulcer pay.”

It seems to me that you are a frustrated old man who wishes he could have been successful. When you write such poppy-cock as was in the back section of the paper you work for it shows conclusively that you’re off the beam and at least four of your ulcers are at work.

Some day I hope to meet you. When that happens you’ll need a new nose, a lot of beefsteak for black eyes, and perhaps a supporter below!

Pegler, a gutter snipe, is a gentleman alongside you. I hope you’ll accept that statement as a worse insult than a reflection on your ancestry.

H.S.T.
Read the rest HERE.

Truman's defense of his daughter makes Trump's defense of Ivanka look mild, IMO.

So while you @realDonaldTrump, are worrying about the morons of the 9th circuit, and Ivanka’s Nordstrom line

Remember Free trade?

Remember tax cuts?
Remember Obamacare?
Are you working with Congress on these things so EO’s can be avoided?
We get Ivanka’s your daughter and she’s smart, sharp, a killer in all way and deserving of yadda yadda (I have one the same age and I feel the same way), and we get she’s taking it in the neck because some people hate you. But you made some LARGER promises
You want infrastructure?
You want the populace working in challenging careers here?
You want the profits that create R&D that change the future?
You want the tech that backs THE WALL, without having to buy it from Israel?
You want the Iranians to feel caution at our diplomacy without B-2’s having to fly overhead?
You want Putin to be happy to negotiate his way out of Eastern Ukraine?
You want Syria to end up as Assadistan and KURDISTAN?
You want China to self-regulate in the SCS?
You want the Palestinians to finally face the reality and actually TALK about 2 states FOR REAL?
You want 3% unemployment and 5%+ growth and 8 years?
It all begins with those promises.
Don’t think for a second, ANY OF US, have forgotten.
You’ve done a pretty good job keeping them via executive order and appointments.
Now the big stuff is coming, and DO NOT GET BOGGED DOWN IN THINGS LIKE NORDSTROM’S.

Chinese Curse – Interesting Times

This morning, if Trump was some slick political snake he would look at the gift box he has and smile.
It is IMMENSE.
A rogue judiciary, overstepping the Constitution itself, in the most LIBERAL AND PROGRESSIVE  appellate court in the nation, overturned by SCOTUS 86% of the time in 2012 (and how many 5-4 Scalia decisions were there in that?) has gone WAAAAY off the path of the Constitution. They must be brought back. And there is only one way.
That appellate court, the political gift reasoning would go,  filled with the appointees of activist liberals, whose prime goal was to LEGISLATE against the majority, not protect individual AMERICAN RIGHTS from the mob and the govt, has now crippled the will of the people, and ENDANGERED the public in order to fulfill the progressive dialectic and ideology .
Translation for those of you not watching and listening closely to  Schumer, Pelosi, Waters, Lewis et al:

DONATE MONEY AND WE WILL BEAT THESE FUCKERS

But Trump is not a slick political snake.
He is just a simple .300 hitter, whose line completes like this
He sees the ball and he swings, or not. And he will STRIKE OUT A LOT. But he drives in the run just as often. He is a DOER.
Trump has several choices now.
Retry this entire shebang on the basis of the EXECUTIVE AUTHORITY under the Constitution, call for a full panel in the 9th circuit  (where, if there are 9 judges he must win over 5 of the 6 additional judges since he is behind 3-0 right now), or go to SCOTUS where he will have to depend on the 4 (so called ‘liberal’) judges not regarded as Originalists to render a decision based on precisely the authorities granted to the executive ONLY.
To go back to the beginning will take a year or more. To get a full panel weeks. To go right to SCOTUS, 2 weeks at best. Meanwhile the clock is ticking on this TEMPORARY HALT.
If the president goes back to the beginning and there is (GOD FORBID) even one lone wolf attack here from any individual from these nations, or whose PARENTS are from these nations should he or she be born here, no democrat will be able to get elected to an office of significance for 50 years.
OR...Trump can issue a new vetting procedure TODAY and SKIP any ban bearing in mind Comey’s warning:
“We can only query against that which we have collected,” 
“And so if someone has never made a ripple in the pond in Syria in a way that would get their identity or their interest reflected in our database, we can query our database until the cows come home, but there will be nothing show up because we have no record of them.”
Of course this applies to any of the failed states in that list, folks from or WHO AVE VISITED, say Waziristan, Yemen, etc. If any applicant for a visa fails to pass the vetting with flying colors, for ANY REASON, including blank data, they are out. This is purely a function of the State Dept, all of whom work for the President.
Of course, a thorough review of the databases and where they came from would be in order and during that time….. NO ONE GETS IN EXCEPT by special State Dept intervention.
NO ONE.
From anywhere.
Meanwhile Trump owes it to every subsequent president to get this to a positive outcome in SCOTUS so that the idea that the courts can IN ANY WAY make foreign policy, limit foreign policy or dictate the migration of foreigners in to the USA, is DESTROYED forever.
That means Gorsuch - TODAY.
NOW NOW NOW
In this he holds, especially right now, the ULTIMATE CARD.
The court has no enforcement ability.
He can order the State dept to enforce his order, and fire ANYONE who refuses.
The Constitution holds only ONE punishment for this, and it ain’t happening. The President conducting FOREIGN POLICY, affecting non citizens, OUTSIDE THE USA, can never be EITHER a high crime or a misdemeanor.
And this path is WITHIN THE LAW.
LOOK OUT.

Syria’s Assad tells Yahoo News some refugees are ‘definitely’ terrorists



From Yahoo News:
Syrian President Bashar Assad told Yahoo News that some of the refugees are “definitely” terrorists. 
In an exclusive interview with Yahoo News at a presidential office in Damascus, Assad said President Trump’s freeze on admitting refugees from his country — part of an executive order that has drawn widespread protests and is being challenged in federal court — “is an American issue” on which he would not take sides. 
But asked if some of those who fled are “aligned with terrorists,” Assad quickly replied, “Definitely.” 
“You can find it on the Net,” Assad went on: “Those terrorists in Syria, holding the machine gun or killing people, they [appear as] peaceful refugees in Europe or in the West.” 
He said he couldn’t estimate how many there might be, but he added that “you don’t need a significant number to commit atrocities.” He noted that the 9/11 attacks were pulled off by fewer than 20 terrorists “out of maybe millions of immigrants in the United States. So it’s not about the number, it’s about the quality, it’s about the intentions.”

The Democratic Party has lost its mind — and its soul


From the New York Post:
No president has ever had so few cabinet members confirmed at this late date, just as no president has been confronted with such open talk of assassination and impeachment. 
Speaking of which, have you heard a single Democrat decry the talk of assassination? Have you heard a single Democrat denounce the violence carried out by so-called protesters? 
The answers are no and no because Dems see the riots and threats of violence as legitimate expressions of disapproval — and convenient for their purposes. 
Their contribution to the “resistance” started when 70 Democrats boycotted Trump’s inauguration and many senators boycotted confirmation hearings and votes. Maybe they’ll soon throw rocks through windows.
From an Anonymous commenter:
Bolche violence is back, hailed by Lenin's followers. 
Were you aware there is a statute of Lenin in downtown Seattle? 
There is also a taqueria across from the statue, called: Red Taco! 
This country, or at least most of the West coast is gone down the tube. Perhaps when the faults give Western states will not need to secede. They will simply be dumped into the ocean. Sorry Pasto.

Target Shares Have Now Lost 23% of Value, Company Ends Priority Projects in Wake of Transgender Policy Backlash


From RT:
US retail giant Target has scrapped two high priority projects after a public backlash in response to a proposal to introduce transgender-friendly, mixed-sex, bathrooms and fitting rooms. 
The retailer shut down its ‘Store of the Future’ concept before it kicked off. The project was aimed at promoting a new outlet design combining a smaller upfront retail store fronting a warehouse and robots picking items for the customers up front. 
Another project the corporation has decided to scuttle is ‘Goldfish,’ which was intended to set up an online marketplace where other retailers and manufacturers could sell products to customers through Target. 
The public backlash was triggered by the company’s April announcement it would welcome transgender customers to use any bathroom or dressing room that matched their gender identity. 
Target’s shares have fallen almost 23 percent since last April. The stock price drop has washed out about $10 billion from the retailer’s value. 
The measure comes as part of the normal ebb and flow of business, according to the retailer.

The Sound of Silence: My government has a right to keep the roof from collapsing, the foundations/borders secure, and Americans safe


From the Daily Times:
Gathered at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport to protest President Trump’s temporary ban which effects seven nations targeted for security considerations, the Muslims bowed in prayer. As the image came across the news wire I asked the usual questions: Who, what, when, where, how and why? 
Led by activist Sheikh Omar Suleiman, the image is a poignant one. The prayer leader is well known. He is also the star “witness” in a BBC documentary, “The United States of Hate”. Since this is a documentary-by-video-clips, a documentary-by-sound-bites, I watched the production in increments of five minutes. This allowed for perusing a few facts. 
Early on, Mr. Suleiman introduces us to a small group of protesters outside a mosque in Phoenix. Beyond the sidewalk in front of the mosque, is the sound of silence. Phoenix has 1.5 million who have not shown up for the protest. 
Citizens are walking the dog, watering their lawns and playing with their children. A beggarly handful at the mosque, the remainder enjoying this blessing called America. The film gives accurate diagnosis for Omar Suleiman’s dilemma. “He sees Islamophobia everywhere.” 
Gee. Everywhere I look there is anticipation of a chocolate candy bar awaiting me. But then again, I am a simple woman. 
Jesus accurately stated, “Seek and ye shall find.” And whilst he was not speaking of confirmation bias it does seem that if we seek the good in people it is to be found. If we seek out the bad it is also there. The question is one of our own orientation. In a quest to seek out the bad hombres, are we walking past columns of people waving and smiling at us? 
Sheikh Omar lets us know there is “a very systematic dehumanization of 1.8 billion people.” Oh really?

Gavin McInnes: "Politics Is Just Fashion to Anti-Fascists"



Gavin McInnes:
Sorry, kids, but it’s not 1961 anymore. You can’t ride in a bus from town to town blowing minds by eating lunch next to a black guy. Trump is not a Nazi. The people who voted for him are far too numerous to be white supremacists. Your villain is the Easter Bunny. These kids know this deep down. They’re like goths glorifying death and sleeping in a coffin. They don’t really want to die. It’s all a game. 
They’re not trying to improve society. They’re not even in society. Ninety-two percent of antifa activists live with their parents. These people make lobster porn and have no idea what the fuck they’re talking about. Go ask one. Ask an NYU student—or any college student, for that matter—what countries are included in the travel ban and who came up with the list. Ask them what percentage of Muslim men between 18 and 25 think “suicide bombing is sometimes or often justified.” At least the guys who do Civil War reenactments can answer basic questions about their hobby. 
My colleague at Rebel Media Ezra Levant recently went through the exact same ordeal up in Canada. He says the Nazi straw-man stuff is dangerous and cites the cops who were murdered by BLM rhetoric. I disagree. I think this is a bunch of stupid kids dressing up as anarchists for Halloween. If I’m wrong and they end up killing me, I want my gravestone to say my name, the years I was alive, and the words “Holy shit, Ezra was right.”

ICE Involved in TEST CASE SETUP to Help Illegal Aliens Supporters?


From Ace of Spades:
The woman arrested is a long-time illegal with a (legal) husband and two (legal) children. But she has an arrest record -- a fairly minor thing. 
She was arrested at an ICE work-site raid. The article doesn't say, but I guess she was arrested for working illegally. She reported in to immigration (apparently she had been doing so for a while, and the bureaucrats there were giving her a free pass) and was arrested by ICE. 
Like I said, this feels an awful lot like what lawyers call a "test-case," where an agitation group casts its defendant for a morality play they want to stage. They pick the most sympathetic defendant, one who is only barely breaking the law they hope to defeat, and engineer things so that this will be the first prosecution -- and the first loss for the prosecution. And becomes the "face" of the defendant group in the media. 
Think I'm crazy? 
In anticipation that Garcia de Rayos could be taken into custody, the group Puente Arizona organized a rally outside the Central Avenue offices of ICE earlier Wednesday. The group advocates to stop the deportation of undocumented immigrants. 
So this group just happened to rally outside the ICE offices before Garcia de Rayos showed up there. Almost like... oh I don't know, almost as if it was all a stage-managed affair.
It's a sad truth that some people who work for ICE and Department of Homeland Security are Leftist plants (or just Leftists who wanted a job and serve as plants since they don't really agree with the original mission of these departments).

Our government is rife with traitors and seditionists.

Three Muslim Brothers, IT Professionals Fired from Capitol Hill for Spying – Funneled House Data to External Server



From the Daily Caller:
Chiefs of staff for dozens of Democratic lawmakers who employed the four were informed last week that a criminal probe was underway into their use of congressional information technology systems, including the existence of an external server to which House data was being funneled, and into the theft of and overbilling for computer equipment. 
Brothers Imran, Abid, and Jamal Awan and Hina Alvi, Imran’s wife, each made $160,000 a year as information technology workers for the House. Their salaries and time were shared among dozens of Democratic members, including former Democratic National Committee Chairman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida. 
The lawmakers also include members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and the House Committee on Foreign Affairs. 
Despite the generous salaries, the four were involved in multiple suspicious mortgage transfers and a debt-evading bankruptcy. Abid had more than $1 million in debts following a failed business called Cars International that he ran in Falls Church, Va., from November 2009 to September 2010. Business associates said in court documents that Abid had stolen money and vehicles from them. 
It’s unclear how Abid found time to run an automotive business while working full-time for Congress. He had been on the congressional payroll since 2005. A congressional credit union repossessed two of his personal cars before the business folded.

UPDATED --- Trump Says Something REALLY FUCKING STUPID

Donald Trump, You Stupid Fuckin' Putz

From Yahoo News:
(At) ... the president’s recent White House meeting with county sheriffs from across the country. During the meeting, one sheriff brought up civil asset forfeiture, a practice allowing law enforcement to seize money and property belonging to individuals accused of committing a crime, even before a verdict is handed down. 
The sheriff, from Rockwall County, Texas, griped about a Texas state senator seeking to change the law so that a conviction would be required before a suspect’s assets could be seized. 
The sheriff joked that “the cartel would build a monument” to the legislator. 
“Who is the state senator? Do you want to give his name? We’ll destroy his career,” Trump responded.
No, you won't, Donald.

You do not own our property, just because some asshole in the Sherriff's department decides we have broken a law.

Never, NEVER threaten the American people that way again.

NEVER.

UPDATE

Midnight Rider says Washington Post is reporting Trump was joking. Certainly, his statement drew a laugh.

TBS-Owned ‘Super Deluxe’ Releases Game ‘Punch-a-Nazi’ , Goal Is To Beat Milo To A Pulp

TBS-owned media company Super Deluxe has created a game called Punch-A-Nazi featuring a digital avatar of Breitbart Senior editor MILO and promoted the game with a livestream on Facebook showing him punched in the face repeatedly. 
The game features three characters for players to beat up: Adolf Hitler, white nationalist Richard Spencer, and MILO. Lumping in Milo — a gay Jew who just weeks ago told students at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs “White Nationalism Is Not the Answer” — reveals how little the developers know about people that they think deserve maiming. 
A video stream of the game being played had 616,521 views at the time of this writing, with over 62,000 “Likes,” “Love,” and “Haha” reactions to watching a gay conservative being beaten until his face was an unrecognizable bloody wreck. 
In the past liberals were horrified at the idea of people viciously beating a homosexual but now seem to actively encourage and glorify it in the hysteria prompted by Donald Trump’s election. 
The game features a control mechanic that has players connect their phone to the game by visiting a web page and entering an onscreen code. The phone then acts as a controller for the game, allowing players to hold the phone and punch the air in order to virtually beat up the onscreen characters. 
The game was released shortly after left wing hysteria over MILO’s events reached its peak resulting in riots at UC Berkeley, shutting down MILO’s speech at the college. Berkeley college professor Robert Reich baselessly suggested that the event was a false flag attack organised by MILO or Breitbart News. 
Despite no evidence to support such a conspiracy theory and the report that one of the groups behind the protests was allegedly funded by George Soros, the smear has been repeated on the UC Berkeley blog, left-wing site Slate, and in Newsweek.

25% of French Teens Are Muslim


From PJ Media:
An investigation of the French youths' religious beliefs was conducted last spring by Ipsos. It surveyed nine thousand high school pupils in their teens on behalf of the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) and Sciences Po Grenoble, and was released on February 4, 2016, by L’Obs, France’s leading liberal newsmagazine. 
Here are its findings: 
38.8% of French youths do not identify with a religion. 
33.2% describe themselves as Christian. 
25.5% call themselves Muslim. 
1.6% identify as Jewish. 
Only 40% of the young non-Muslim believers (and 22% of the Catholics) describe religion as “something important or very important”. But 83% of young Muslims agreed with that statement. 
Such figures should deal the death blow to demographic deniers. Except that once proven wrong, deniers do not make amends. Rather, they contend that since there is after all a demographic, ethnic, and religious revolution, it should be welcomed as a good and positive thing. Straight from fantasy to surrender.

Police are investigating an incident where a lecturer at California State University, Fullerton, allegedly assaulted a student while the College Republicans club was counter-protesting a “No Ban No Wall” protest held by the school’s chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine. 
The description for the protest event mentioned that “a large population of students at CSUF have been attacked because of the identities they hold.” The agenda for the event included a protest, march around campus, and a group prayer led by the Muslim Student Association. 
According to eyewitnesses, Eric Canin, a part time anthropology professor, took offense to the presence of College Republicans during the protest, and assaulted College Republican Bryce Ingalls. 
Canin approached the College Republicans group as they were marching, and attempted to rip away the sign College Republican Jared Lopez was holding. 
Another member of the group, Bryce Ignalls, saw what was happening and allegedly attempted to separate the professor from the student. 
Canin did not wish to desist and allegedly proceeded to purposefully strike Ignalls in the face, according the College Republicans. 
Fullerton Republicans President, Christopher Boyle, says he saw Canin attacking Ingalls, and immediately intervened to physically detain Canin until police apprehended the rogue anthropology professor.

Meet Joanna Palani, the gorgeous 23-year-old Danish student who burst onto the world stage after reports of her combat performance began to surface.

Vice reports that Palani is an Iranian Kurd who was born in a UN refugee camp in Ramadi, Iraq in 1993, after her family was forced to flee their home during the Gulf War. 
They moved to Copenhagen when she was a toddler ...

The 9th Circuit Rag

I am pretty pissed off right now, because if one goes by the questioning of the 9th Circuit panel the other evening, and a politicized court system crushes the (IMO – LEGAL) EO, then a 4-4 vote in SCOTUS upholds this and we are back to square 1 with with a congress that cannot act.
I blame everyone on both sides, but especially noxious in this fiasco is the idea that a company, a university a state or a judge a MAKE FOREIGN POLICY, and turn the Constitution into a self administered overdose of Fentanyl.
Consider that precedent.
Seriously.
MSFT and U Washington go to the state and say ‘help us, we are your citizens’
State sues the federal govt based on immediate harm
Judge stops the federal govt. on a foreign policy issue.
Now, how about that trade war with China?

Why I STILL THINK we are headed for 4 parties and soon

The Democratic Party Side of Dissolution

Nancy Pelosi (I can’t work with President Bush) and Maxine Waters (Putin drives deep into Korea).. DEMENTIA AND DELUSION ..age catches up.
John Lewis LOSES his mind delcaring the opening shot of a REAL CIVIL WAR in his declaration of Trump’s evil illegitimacy, and 35% of Dems in congress AGREE, amid CONTINUED accusations (leaders) that Trump et al are white supremacists and Jew haters
Leaders insisting if you won’t force a baker by federal law to make a contract to bake a cake, you hate gays, EVEN IF YOU VOTE FOR THEIR MARRIAGE.
Schumer, Ellison, and Warren plan SEGREGATION by ideology following Robert Byrd’s model of MASSIVE RESISTANCE. They are LITERALLY standing at the door between the elected govt and TOMORROW.
In the ‘center’ …Hillary Clinton imitating the garden restaurant scene in Cabaret (‘the future belongs to  …wimmin’) while popping her (Atavan??) eyes wide open reading the ingredients of Maypo as it pertains to wimmin’, and the lalalala – FIRST WOMAN PRESIDENT CROWD whoops dee doo.
And underlying this is the belief that our limited resources must be shared, and the sharing is best decided by them.
Meanwhile, Joe Manchin, and others just like him are scratching their heads wondering what to do in the party of Henry Jackson, Hubert Humphrey, and Harry Truman.

The Republican Party Side of Dissolution

Still congratulating themselves for gutting the Tea Party initiatives of 2010 in 2012 which got us Obama II, which got us here. (How’s your new house, Lois?)
Carbon Tax? Are you people OUT OF YOUR MINDS?
Money from Soros? Are you people OUT OF YOUR MINDS?
Delays over Obamacare replacement.
Delays and fighting over taxes.
Waiting on the wall.
Failure to do what it takes to punch thru the cabinet.
Failure to recognize WHAT THE PEOPLE CHOSE
Failure to recognize WE DON’T NEED THEM
Failure to support the executive on the ugly needs of ENDING the possibility of importing terror via immigration. I don’t hear a goddamned thing from McConnell or Ryan on this.
‘Conservatives’ still telling us that free trade is better
‘Conservatives’ still telling us that abortion at the moment of conception is murder because of their faith
‘Conservatives’ still telling us that god hates gays

KEEP GOING ASSHOLES

GOPe rears its head again, and …. WE SEE YOU

Tax cuts bog down.
‘Fear’ in the cloakrooms over replacing Obamacare.
Infighting over taxes.
Gorsuch delays and lack of urgency.
Failure to LEAD in the Senate around the GOVT SHUTDOWN OF THE EXEC DEPT the Dems are performing (George Washington got a Cabinet faster …BY HORSE MAIL). You can blame some of this on their being agog at the Dems Bolshevism over every stone, their determination to scorch the political earth o badly NOTHING WILL GROW AGAIN. But that time is past. No president has had  harder time getting a cabinet. The Dems are PLANNING DISORDER. Not resistance. DISORDER.
The GOPe are determined to move in the same old way, because the vast majority of them in DC still long for the comfort of the dual party political class WHICH IS DEAD. The mortal blow was delivered in the election by an angry electorate, but the Dems, to be sure, have SHOT THE VICTIM IN THE HEAD with these tactics.
The political system is NOT going back to the same old ways, no matter what.
The democrats not being ADULT enough to accept they lost to what they have deemed evil as they named it over and over before the public which rejected them everywhere but large cities have decided on another result if they cannot govern.
Things are NOT going back. No matter what.
ADAPT.
If the GOPe moves in the same old way… if they do not deliver REVOLUTIONARY CHANGE to taxes to enable business to offset SOME of the pay differential between the USA and the Malaysia’s and China’s, and deliver trade (agreement) revolution to increase manufacturing ALONG WITH, price relief for SOME ITEMS here as the changes take place, if they do not HELP via legislation, the executive to institute rapid effective reduction in the size of the federal workforce empire, if they do not HELP to rapidly build a wall or pass legislation supporting immigration safety measures I promise you I will vote D in 2018 JUST TO GET RID OF YOU and then R the next time and then D and then R until someone understands me, and understands an electorate in which only the founding document stands between civil change by vote and civil violence and then the final step as we watch one failed government lead to a more extreme failed government of opposite ideology and so on, until we either get a government of ORDER (Sulla), or armed revolt.
No society will brook sustained disorder.
Do you hear this Chucky?
Mitch?
This is not my desire. This is my OBSERVATION.
This is WHERE WE ARE HEADING, and the GOPe by not rapidly executing the WILL OF THE PEOPLE this time around, BECAUSE of the Bolshevik resistance of the Dems, is playing their part in American denouement. If you think your ideas are right, ACT. When in charge, take charge.

State Dept. Whistleblower Publishes Letter in Chicago Tribune Stating His Support For Trump and Bearing Witness to the Corruption and Security Lapses Of The Refugee Program


From the Chicago Tribune:
I fully support President Donald Trump's executive order that temporarily halts admissions from the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program and bans travel from nationals of countries that potentially pose a security risk to the United States; however, I don’t think the action goes far enough. 
Further, I believe there are many people throughout the country who feel the same way. 
As a recently retired 25-year veteran of the U.S. Department of State who served almost eight years as a refugee coordinator throughout the Middle East, Africa, Russia and Cuba, I have seen first-hand the abuses and fraud that permeate the refugee program and know about the entrenched interests that fight every effort to implement much-needed reform. 
Despite claims of enhanced vetting, the reality is that it is virtually impossible to vet an individual who has no type of an official record, particularly in countries compromised by terrorism. 
U.S. immigration officials simply rely on the person’s often rehearsed and fabricated “testimony.” I have personally seen this on hundreds of occasions. 
As a refugee coordinator, I saw the exploitations, inconsistencies and security lapses in the program, and I advocated strongly for change. Nonetheless, during the past decade and specifically under the Obama administration, the Refugee Admissions Program continued to expand blindly, seemingly without concern for security or whether it served the best interests of its own citizens. 
For instance, the legally questionable resettlement of refugees from Malta to the United States grew substantially, despite the fact that as a European country with a functioning asylum system, “refugees” should have remained there under the internationally accepted concept of “the country of first asylum.” 
Similarly, the “special” in-country refugee programs in Cuba and Russia continue, although they are laden with fraud and far too often simply admit economic migrants rather than actual refugees. 
As an insider who understands its operations, politics and weaknesses, I believe the refugee program must change dramatically and the courts must allow the president to fully implement the order.
AND THEN THERE'S THIS:


TheHill: DHS ordered me to scrub records of Muslims with terror ties



After leaving my 15 year career at DHS, I can no longer be silent about the dangerous state of America’s counter-terror strategy, our leaders’ willingness to compromise the security of citizens for the ideological rigidity of political correctness—and, consequently, our vulnerability to devastating, mass-casualty attack.

Just before that Christmas Day attack, in early November 2009, I was ordered by my superiors at the Department of Homeland Security to delete or modify several hundred records of individuals tied to designated Islamist terror groups like Hamas from the important federal database, the Treasury Enforcement Communications System (TECS). These types of records are the basis for any ability to “connect dots.” Every day, DHS Customs and Border Protection officers watch entering and exiting many individuals associated with known terrorist affiliations, then look for patterns. Enforcing a political scrubbing of records of Muslims greatly affected our ability to do that. Even worse, going forward, my colleagues and I were prohibited from entering pertinent information into the database.

A few weeks later, in my office at the Port of Atlanta, the television hummed with the inevitable Congressional hearings that follow any terrorist attack. While members of Congress grilled Obama administration officials, demanding why their subordinates were still failing to understand the intelligence they had gathered, I was being forced to delete and scrub the records. And I was well aware that, as a result, it was going to be vastly more difficult to “connect the dots” in the future—especially beforean attack occurs.

As the number of successful and attempted Islamic terrorist attacks on America increased, the type of information that the Obama administration ordered removed from travel and national security databases was the kind of information that, if properly assessed, could have prevented subsequent domestic Islamist attacks like the ones committed by Faisal Shahzad (May 2010), Detroit “honor killing” perpetrator Rahim A. Alfetlawi (2011); Amine El Khalifi, who plotted to blow up the U.S. Capitol (2012); Dzhokhar or Tamerlan Tsarnaev who conducted the Boston Marathon bombing (2013); Oklahoma beheading suspect Alton Nolen (2014); or Muhammed Yusuf Abdulazeez, who opened fire on two military installations in Chattanooga, Tennessee (2015). 
It is very plausible that one or more of the subsequent terror attacks on the homeland could have been prevented if more subject matter experts in the Department of Homeland Security had been allowed to do our jobs back in late 2009. It is demoralizing—and infuriating—that today, those elusive dots

'Explosion on Paris metro' as dozens of passengers are evacuated from smoke-filled station


Not Terror-Related?

From the Mirror:
A 'huge explosion' has been reported on the Paris metro leading to dozens of passengers evacuated from a station. 
The incident, on Line 6 in or near to the the Place d'Italie subway stop, appears to have been caused by an electrical fire, but has raised fresh terror fears as France remains on high alert. 
As many as eight passengers are believed to have been injured in the explosion, either in the apparent blast or from smoke inhalation. It is unclear at this time what caused the explosion, but security personnel are believed have sealed off the area. 
Dozens of armed police are at the scene around the Place d'Italie as the situation is investigated. 
Early reports suggest the explosion was caused by an electrical fire and that eight people have been injured.
I'm sure the Police are armed in case the Electrical Fire decides to detonate anymore explosions.
