“Analysts at the U.S.-based think tank the Institute for the Study of War, who have been plotting the locations and types of attacks in the recent flurry of blasts buffeting the Iraqi capital, have noted a clear pattern developing. They say it suggests the Islamic State is building up to something big and is no longer just focused on consolidating its grip and developing governance in the lands it now controls.” President Obama’s call on Israel to stop fighting in Gaza is going to look like a drunk pissing in a four alarm fire. Consider Libya. Remember Libya, the place Samantha Power wanted to protect? Tripoli is literally ablaze. ” A huge fuel depot in Libya’s capital burned out of control on Monday, set ablaze in fighting between rival militias that has driven the country to chaos three years after the NATO-backed revolt that toppled Muammar Gaddafi … ignited by a missile strike that hit millions of liters of fuel.” Nearly all the foreign embassies are already gone. The place is burning out — literally. And that’s just for openers.Belmont Club Nopoleon
Liberalism, I want to destroy you. We're where the action is, where the excitement is, where you can hear new music from bands you mainstream liberals have probably never heard of.
Do they have any connection at all to England? Are their signs even in English? [No.] Make no mistake. The same hatred on display for Jews and Israel is also there for OTHER WHITES. Like the Irish. And the Italians. And the Poles. And the Germans. And the French. And the English. And the Dutch. And the Norwegians. And the Icelanders. And the Spanish. And the Hungarians. And the Greeks. And the Swedes. And the Finns. And the Russians. And Czechs. And the Swiss. No White will escape that hatred.- - whiskeysplace
with an orbiting satellite containing biological experiments, including one designed to see how geckos have sex and reproduce in zero gravity. The geckos are apparently OK.

They don’t believe in quarantine, being no respecter of borders, orders or law.
They don’t believe in Western knowledge either. Once ebola hitches a ride with the Boko Haram who can say what will happen? Globalization has had a good run. But it’s hitting some speed bumps. Let’s hope air travel recovers. Of course aircraft have others uses besides travel.
He self medicates against depression, or drinks to excess, or takes recreational drugs, or overeats. On the political level, the self destruction takes the form of hating and dismantling whatever protects him, such as police and military men, and loving and encouraging whatever seeks to maim, torment, and kill him, such as Communism or Jihad. The feminist expresses willingness to perform unnatural sexual acts on the groin of Bill Clinton because of, not despite, his history of sexual assault, abuse, and rape.The Logic of Illogic J C.

Because if famous, rich people like me and come over to my house, then I must be teh awesome. And if I hang out with physically attractive women (which Beyonce actually is when she isn’t dressed like a nickel whore, which is never), then I must be a physically attractive woman too! And all that matters is that I’m popular, rich and that people tell me I’m pretty. And I will burn this ***** down and everyone in it without batting a single one of my fake eyelashes in order to achieve this. Because ME. ME. ME.Completely Negative | Barnhardt
all independently developing as teeth, coming out of that lone molar!” Dhivare-Palwankar told IANS here Tuesday. Besides, there was another hard, rock-like formation inside the affected tooth in Ashik’s mouth which could not be removed by a dentist’s drill. “We had to resort to the age-old, now outdated, ‘chisel-mallet’ procedure to break down that hard formation as it was putting immense pressures on the jaw bone and surrounding healthy teeth,” she explained.
But when the men and women take off their uniforms and return to their homes and assume responsibility for their own and their families’ safety, suddenly the politicians don’t trust them to own a gun. This is pure elitism. … Gun control is not about guns or crime. It is about an elite that fears and despises the common people.“-- Charley Reese (1937-2013) American syndicated columnist Orlando Sentinel, March 31, 1994.
meaning a fascination with things of no relevance,
and a distaste for learning anything requiring either effort or maturity. Once the chain of cultivation breaks, how do you weld it together? That generation — I was once of them — swept into faculty lounges as a sort of jejune intellectual anthrax and turned the universities into political sand boxes. Soon we had departments of the utterly trivial, and courses like “Lesbian Chicana Theory in the Brazilian Favela.”- - Fred Reed
no nightingale ever sang an ode to the evening star. Beauty is Heaven’s final answer to all the petty distractions and diversions of man. True beauty causes an ecstasy in the soul, the drawing of oneself out from one’s petty self into a larger world, in just the same way the ecstasy of the honeymoon bed draws a bachelor into life as a selfless father and leader of a family, so that he both grows and enters a larger world.The Logic of Illogic | John C.

and in our culture at large—the conviction, so dear to progressives, that with just this policy, just that tax increase, with one more appropriation or this precise set of comprehensive regulations, the election of a different candidate or the invention of this cure or the distribution of a revolutionary serum or the revision of one more curriculum, the world will at last reach the cusp of a glorious consummation and the unending downward drag of entropy will be reversed. It is not possible, or should not be so for a reasonable man, to sustain such fancies in the face of an obituary.ｫ Commentary MagazineI
The plan: To observe their mating activities in the zero-gravity conditions of Earth orbit. Several other earthly creatures, including plants and insects, were also placed on board for experiments. But shortly after the satellite made its first few orbits, it stopped responding to commands from mission control.- The Washington Post
->Their armies are routed not only by Americans, but also by tiny, Jewish Israel;
and as Arthur Koestler once remarked, the Arab world has not, in the last 500 years or so, produced much besides rugs, dirty postcards, elaborations on the belly-dance esthetic (and, of course, some innovative terrorist practices). They have no science to speak of, no art, hardly any industry save oil, very little literature, and portentous music which consists largely of lugubrious songs celebrating the slaughter of Jews.FrontPage Magazine - Saving Arabs From Themselves
The Great Depression will be something to aspire to, where even migrant field hands drove cars to work. Actually it doesn’t all lie ahead, some of it is already behind us. Truth is, we arrived a while back. We’re like the Okies in that first month without a good rain, or the laid off employee who thought he was between jobs. The era of hustle and opportunity that lifted all boats ended a long while ago. We’ve fallen below the event horizon. Gravity is in charge now. We’ve entered an era of relentlessly deepening want. In not much time it will beggar belief, then plunge directly to the heart of catastrophe. You’ll never again use the word hungry as lightly as you do now.- - Western Rifle Shooters Association
Music? Classical composition is dead.
The symphony orchestras hold on by their teeth. Opera is unheard and almost unheard of. Book sales drop, and those that sell are mostly trash. Poetry is dead, Shakespeare a comic shorthand for ridiculous irrelevant pedantry. Talented painters abound, but the nation has no interest in them. Sculpture means curious blobs and shapes said to be art and chosen by suburban arts committees. Theater? How many people have seen a play recently other than a high-school production?Fred Reed
Nor should you fear DC overmuch, other than rogue Free Corps and last ditchers and everyone taking control of everything and arresting each other. It will remain an obnoxious meddler at the outset and a while longer, but it’ll be mostly habit. DC’s broke. In fact, it’s broker than you are. Meddling gets prohibitively expensive absent voluntary compliance. We’ve already seen DC metastasize from a dignified bribery and extortion racket with a credible claim to utility into smash-and-grab street thuggery. But more importantly, DC has become exclusively self-referential, a dead short in the circuitry, irrelevant to the problems at hand other than as an extravagant consumer of wattage.- - Western Rifle Shooters Association
He seems to know that they will flinch when meeting his eye. There is a silence around him. The voices of grown men change when they speak to him. They make their voices as low as possible. Their faces become solemn, almost stiffened. They look down: worried, nervous, alert. “He doesn’t talk,” the interpreter says. “He feels no need to smile. He doesn’t want to go for a walk. He doesn’t want to drink... At anyone time there are 10 people around him... You cannot get more than 3m close to him because the space is guarded so carefully. He is endlessly surrounded by whispering aides, cameramen, bodyguards.Behind the Scenes in Putin's Court: The Private Habits of a Latter-Day Dictator HT: Never Yet Melted
even while many universities now see no problem in departing from their primary mission of education,
and have drifted into a priority of ideological brainwashing and factories of propaganda. Combine all these factors, and you have a generation of young people who may have student debt larger than the mortgage on a median American house (meaning they will not be the first-time home purchasers that the housing market depends on to survive), while having their head filled with indoctrination that carries zero or even negative value in the private sector workforce.The Futurist: The Education Disruption : 2015
They advocate for euthanasia because they want to die. They kill children in the womb because the only thing more sacred than a man’s life is the life of a child, the only thing more sacred than love is mother’s love. In terms of generating and expressing self-loathing and self-destruction, only abortion is more horrific than suicide, because it wipes out the entirety of life, not merely the remnant, and unlike the suicide, the child is innocent. Abortion is the perfect Black Mass of self-hatred screaming its loudest.The Logic of Illogic | John C. Wright's Journal
Much of the information now sent by mail could be sent through the air on the personal channel, to be viewed in the home or to be printed out for a more or less permanent record. … Very likely there will be a signal light to indicate that a message is waiting to be viewed. When the personal channel is then activated, each item stored will be displayed in turn. Each can be scanned and erased, scanned and temporarily returned to storage, or scanned and printed out, after which the next item would appear. It will be very much like going through one’s mail today, with its mixture of personal items and advertising, in which some are discarded, some put aside, and some filed. - – Isaac Asimov, “The Individualism to Come,” New York Times, Jan. 7, 1973[Via You’ve Got Mail – Futility Closet]
