I weary anyway, of the endless news stories reporting that children can barely read or not at all, can’t add, and don’t know anything.
This in the United States? The exceptional nation, shining city on a hill, guiding light of mankind?
On and on it goes: the national toleration of the stupid, the inferior, the lazy, and the uncultivated. More specifically, toleration of substandard teachers, substandard races, substandard approaches to schooling, and intellectually shiftless people bitching about everything being somebody else’s fault.

Just imagine that a giant, mainstream media company curb-stomped Muslims or progressives and then spit in their face and defecated on their idols just for fun.Imagine what would happen. To start with, Fox and AMC headquarters would be blown to pieces or invaded by armed assailants.
ABC, for waging such a brutal assault on gay rights ideology, would be boycotted by millions, its executives subjected to harassment and death threats, its advertisers targeted, its CEO exposed in front of the world and all of his deepest and darkest secrets revealed. Dozens would be fired. ABC would be forced to issue several graveling apologies, and every ABC owned property and affiliate and associate would have to publicly condemn the network and sign contracts promising to air pro-gay propaganda videos three times a week in perpetuity as restitution. And that would just be the beginning.... Dear Christians, Now Is The Time For Intolerance
American immigration consists of repeated attempts to let in everyone, followed by disasters,
at which point American law allowed people to either remove the immigrants or exclude them,
at which point they self-deported. Europe has a similar history marked more by pogroms than democracy natterings, but the cycle remains the same. The domesticated sheep lunge after their feelings in order to show everyone how nice they are, and then it explodes in their faces and the remaining adults — a dwindling group over the years — take over and fix the mess.

The real enemy logically should be at NASCAR races and NRA shows. Why not disrupt the recreation of supposed rednecks to remind them of their racism, sexism, and homophobia? Why not go to Donald Trump rallies en masse to remind the reprobate audiences of their embedded privilege? Leftists tweaking liberals is kid’s play.

The Perfect Job for These Poor Jihadist Refugees
One which values oppressive fanaticism, does not tolerate speech outside of specific and carefully-groomed lines of thought and which relies on intimidation to prevent the spread of illicit ideas?

This is why your ancestors invented a system called feudalism.
Most people are deficient in brains and moral character, barely above monkeys,
and so while they can do a modern job just fine, they always choose destructive things. They cannot control their appetites, nor their need to look cool to their friends, nor do they have any particular ability to tell good from bad in quality. They like new things and leave a trail of landfill behind them. Feudalism took such people and put them in peasant roles where they were kept illiterate so they could not argue or write nonsense, and kept impoverished so they did not generate a trail of disposable wreckage. These people have always been this way. They are inferior and their opinions are unnecessary. But they always think eternal pluralism is a good idea, and until now, Starbucks probably thought that was good for business. -- The red cup and pluralism @ Amerika

In this ‘pilgrims=refugees’ meme Europeans are just immigrantswho came to the singular, utopic Native State to fuck it up.
Not settlers who built a country while fighting many different separate, warring Indian nations, and creating their own country in the process. But if you take this leftist analogy at face value, then the lesson is that non-Arabs will be slowly rubbed-out into obscurity through years of combat and treachery until they exist politically only in state-subsidized enclaves with maybe the self-determination to slaughter and eat a pig when the rest of the country can’t or won’t. Why is this an argument for mass immigration? -- - STREET CARNAGE
I wonder how many American refugees Planned Parenthood killed today on the border between the womb and the world.

From Oct. 1, 2012 to Sept. 30, 2013, Planned Parenthood performed 327,653 abortions. Over the course of those 365 days (or 8,760 hours), that averages out to 898 abortions per day and 37 abortions per hour. -- CNS News
The insistent demand for an endless flow of Third World immigrants to the West goes well beyond cheap labor for the rich. It has become a mass psychosis.Why should we act as if our cultures are better than those that haven’t made advanced scientific discoveries, such as that women are human beings?
That would be “xenophobic”! Successful countries must allow themselves to be overrun by backward cultures so that no country thinks it’s better than another. This psychosis runs so deep that even a father who was with his 12-year-old son at the Bataclan theater during the attack refused to notice anything distinctive about the shooters. Asked to describe one assailant’s face on CNN, the man replied, “He looked like a young fellow.” He was young! Fantastic — bring the police sketch artist! When the Third World Attacks | Human Events
Why do they call it "Black Friday?" Is it because of the shoppers?
Every year it seems the advertisements creep in earlier and earlier, and our “holidays” come to resemble more of an all-day advertising pitch than a day of rest and reflection.

Untangling the Tale of the Seven Sutherland Sisters and Their 37 Feet of Hair
But when the sisters posed for photo shoots, generally, Sarah would sit and others would bend their waists so that it seemed that all seven had hair that brushed the ground. Victoria had the longest, a full 7 feet from the top of her head to the ends. When she let it down, it would drag behind her. Naomi's braid was four inches thick, and when it was undone, she could cover her whole body with her magnificent mane, which was 5 feet long. Mary, the youngest, was mentally unstable her whole life, and some doctors and preachers went as far as blaming her 6 feet of very heavy, dark hair for pulling on her head. | Collectors Weekly
It’s not us, it’s them. The Muslim world is afflicted with a sickness, a pathology.We can continue to believe that we have the power, through our actions, to eradicate Muslim extremism.
We can continue to buy that line even in the face of decades of evidence to the contrary. We can continue to remain blind and deaf to the fact that there’s no action the West can take that hasn’t already been blamed for “radicalizing” Muslims. We’re told that we radicalized them by engaging in “nation building” in Iraq (“it’s our fault; we meddled in their internal affairs”), but we’re also told we radicalized them by not engaging in nation building after helping the Afghans defeat the Soviets (“it’s our fault; we just walked away without meddling in their internal affairs”). We’re told we radicalized them by attempting to remove a dictator by force (Iraq ’03) and by sanctions (Iraq in the ’90s), but we’re also told we radicalized them by not attempting to remove a dictator (“they hate us because for decades we backed Mubarak!”). We’re told we radicalize them domestically via intrusive government policies that “harass” their communities, but we’re also told we radicalize them by leaving their communities completely alone (“the Muslim slums of France are hotbeds of extremism due to years of government neglect!”). We’re told it’s all about the West’s support for Israel, even as Muslim terrorists attack nations that are hostile to Israel. We’re told it’s not about religion, merely foreign policy, even though the Muhammad cartoons led to protests throughout the Muslim world that were larger and more violent than any protests about Western foreign policy.

This is the start of the idea of safe spaces; society itself is the safe space. I say we undo all of it.
Remove the warning tags from mattresses. Get rid of speed limits, DUI laws, handicapped parking, movie ratings, the lot of it. Those things create a mentality that destroys civilizations because they create an intermediary in place of reality. People no longer worry about the consequences of their actions, but whether those actions are legal. Get rid of all of it. 99% of our laws need to go into the dumpster with the rest of the “think of the children!”-style neurotic rule-making. Safe spaces must be destroyed

This "Black Friday" Shopapallooza is Getting Out of Hand
Hanging San Francisco’s status on its supposed cultural heft, as so many try to do, is more problematic still.The art scene, a self-conscious copy of New York’s, is a joke.
Its culinary renown is derivative of nearby towns (“California Cuisine” was born across the Bay in Berkeley), and for at least 20 years Northern California’s best restaurants have been in the suburbs and the wine country. The City by the Bay can claim one genuinely topflight asset: the second-best opera company in the United States. The rest of its cultural attractions are no better and some a good deal worse—I’m looking at you, de Young fine arts museum, with your cotton-candy collection in that gulag-chic monstrosity—than comparable institutions in second- and third-tier Eastern and Midwestern cities.

Dirge in Woods by George Meredith
A recent poll shows that in a hypothetical general election match-up between Grandma Rodham-Sociopath and Der Trumpening, the charismatic jerkboy tops Huma’s lesbian lover.
What could possibly go wrong?
The Russian general staff announced that the missile cruiser Moskva, one of the largest warships in the world, was ordered to move closer to the Syrian coast opposite the port of Latakia, near the Turkish border, and to “destroy any target posing danger.” The USS Harry S. Truman carrier with strike force is on its way to the Mediterranean, having sailed from the US on Nov.16. The Truman will join the French aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle, whose planes started bombing ISIS targets in Iraq on Nov. 23. If Obama orders the Truman to enter the Syrian theater, there will be two warships from NATO member states facing Russian naval forces off the Syrian coast, led by the missile carrier Moskva. US-Russian discord over Syria stoked by Turkey's downing of the Russian warplane
from ISIS-occupied territories. This explains the significant funding the terrorists are receiving. Now they are stabbing us in the back by hitting our planes that are fighting terrorism. This is happening despite the agreement we have signed with our American partners to prevent air incidents, and, as you know, Turkey is among those who are supposed to be fighting terrorism within the American coalition." - - Meeting with King Abdullah II of Jordan
The nine known nuclear powers have collectively manufactured approximately 100,000 warheads.
Most are secure and accounted for, but many are not, and no reliable warhead inventory exists among the established nuclear-weapons states, rogue aspirants, shoe-box countries, and terrorist groups. Untracked fissionable material from the former Soviet Union alone would be enough for the construction of a large number of weapons, and—legitimately or otherwise—new fissile material is created every day. Almost half a century ago, Israel, with a GNP of $3.3 billion and a population of two and a half million, created a nuclear weapon even before it produced its own jet aircraft. Were certain and universal abolition to be achieved, it could be secretly negated by manufacture. And as for covert retention, an average American house is big enough to hold an arsenal sufficient to control an otherwise nuclear-disarmed world.

Top 5 Things Westerners Need to Embrace About Islamic CultureIslamists have a lotta good points and it would be very Islamophobic to ignore them.
Here are the top five they bring to the culture table.
1.) Women Suck: Chicks need to understand they are useless deadweight—they should be seen (in a burka), not heard, subjugated, beaten, and raped at any time. The only good thing a chick can possibly do is birth a jihadist who will further marginalize women. How is this not common sense?
2.) Jews Suck: Sorry, I meant, “Joooz Suck.” Have you seen the price of those kosher hotdogs? Only a covetous Hebraic Zionist could live with that inflated price on his conscience.
3.) FGM Rocks: That stands for “Female Genital Mutilation.” Slicing off a woman’s clitoris is the best thing a man can do. It removes the idea that a woman can have pleasure from sex. She won’t cheat. Why would she? It robs a chick of her most intimate desires. Genius!
4.) The West Sucks: Of course we do—even though ISIS relies on Twitter and Facebook to gain recruits—Freedom of Expression is retarded. I mean, freedom is just ridiculous and Islam has a good cure for it. They will kill you. I think that whenever you place your racist hand over your racist heart and sing the “Star-Spangled Banner,” you should be subject to Hate Crime legislation.
5.) Gays Suck: ISIS throws gays off of tall buildings. I’m pretty sure that flaming gays may float, but I doubt they can fly. This is just Islam conducting a scientific experiment and we should all be thankful. Surprisingly, gays are like cats, and when thrown down from 20 floors up, they always land on their feet.

When it came to America and burgers and Mickey Mouse, their anger exploded.A friend in Paris asked me what I thought of my visit there after the attacks.
I told her I found it frustrating because there didn’t seem to be an real rage. She barked, “I’m sorry your day trip was frustrating. I can assure you people are mad and grieving.” This was the most passionate I’d seen her about the whole thing. It was the same with everyone I spoke to.

Safe spaces are designed to blot our reality and replace it with a giant neurotic and morally flatulent human mind.Safe spaces must be destroyed Safe spaces are solipsism bubble zones
where people can go if they fear someone might mention reality. In safe spaces, people can bloviate on about their ideological ideas without being contradicted by someone who has noticed flaws in their narrative, i.e. reality peeking through the carefully-constructed artifice. Safe spaces are designed to blot our reality and replace it with a giant neurotic and morally flatulent human mind. They are the triumph of narcissism, fear and intolerance (of reality!) over common sense, logic and survival. They are suicide cults.

Ethics from the Barrel of a Gun
No one's finger is on the trigger but your own. All the talk-talk in your head, all the emotions in your heart, all the experiences of your past — these things may inform your choice, but they can't move your finger. All the socialization and rationalization and justification in the world, all the approval or disapproval of your neighbors — none of these things can pull the trigger either. They can change how you feel about the choice, but only you can actually make the choice. Only you. Only here. Only now. Fire, or not?A second is this: never count on being able to undo your choices.
If you shoot someone through the heart, dead is dead. You can't take it back. There are no do-overs. Real choice is like that; you make it, you live with it — or die with it.A third lesson is this: the universe doesn't care about motives.
If your gun has an accidental discharge while pointed an unsafe direction, the bullet will kill just as dead as if you had been aiming the shot. I didn't mean to may persuade others that you are less likely to repeat a behavior, but it won't bring a corpse back to life. - - Eric Raymond
There are many kinds of shark, some of which (like Sufis) are habitually peaceful;
Stall, or push them backwards, and they asphyxiate. Their aggressive hunting customs are of a piece, reflecting this “progressive” need.
Sharks are sharks and will be, whether from the East, or from the West. Who am I to judge their nature? But it is not their nature that I oppose. Rather, it is the idea that we should keep backing off, so their comfort zones will not be impeded, when some kind of wall would be much more effective.

The Past and Future of Magnetic Poetry, the Populist Product that Began With a Sneeze
In 1993, Kapell was living in an 8-person co-op in Minneapolis,
pursuing songwriting, his true passion, in between shifts at his data entry job. One night, he was trying to bust writer's block using the cut-up method, in which you chop magazines or other texts into bite-sized pieces and mix them up for inspiration. He had a pile of clippings all arranged when his allergies kicked in. "One of my roommates was working at a pizza place, and they had misprinted their advertising fridge magnets with the wrong phone number on them," Kapell says in a phone interview. "She brought them home thinking that maybe somebody might have a use for them. When I sneezed and all my little slips of paper blew all over the place, I thought, oh, I'll stick little pieces of magnets on the back of each one and then stick 'em onto a cookie sheet. And that was the first magnetic poetry kit." | Mental Floss

Urban tactics: survival
- Carry a gun if you can. Carry a knife and some legal projectiles if you can't.
- Always wear a belt that you can slip through your keychain. It can serve as an effective submission noose or a fairly nasty ad hoc flail.
- After you shoot, don't forget to scoot. Unless you're Nate, you're probably going to be outgunned. If you saw the clip of the French police exchanging fire with the Batalan attackers, you can see why it's a bad idea to go pistol against combat rifle directly.
- Face to the door. Always sit facing the door and maintain situational awareness.
- Don't just hit the deck. Hit the deck and move immediately to the side.
- There are weapons everywhere. Be aware of where they are in case you need them. Someone once asked me what I would do if attacked RIGHT NOW. I picked up a stone and threw it at him, then scooped up another handful. He was already cringing and loudly expressing his opinion that he understood my point by the time I raised my hand again.
- The police are not going to come in fast and hard. Their first concern is protecting themselves. Their second concern is preventing the bad guys from getting away. Don't think about waiting for the police, think about how you're going to win. Focus on attack and neutralization, not on simply running away, assuming you can't simply walk out another door and be safe.
- Movement and distraction are key. Think triangles. Flank and then hit from both sides, ideally with someone serving as a distraction in the middle.
- Think predator, not helpless prey.

He'll try to give Gitmo back to the Cubans, release as many fencehoppers and wetbacks from incarceration and then pardon them of all crimes. Then he'll do a Nixon and resign a week or two before the end of his term and get "Ole Slo Joe" to pardon him of all shit he's done.

As last week’s Muslim-perpetrated atrocity in Paris tragically demonstrated, love may not be the answerAccording to the Pew polling organization, 35% of French Muslims support, to one degree or another, “suicide bombing of civilian targets to defend Islam.”
Among French Muslims ages 18–29, that figure climbs to 42%. Leftists like to claim that not all Muslims are “radicalized,” while ignoring how apparently easy it is for a Muslim to become radicalized. ....Of course, the left has responded predictably to the newest bloodshed: We need more love! Muslims fear a backlash! We must end Islamophobia! Again and again, the focus is on non-Muslims. “The kitty cat didn’t mean to scratch you, but you pulled his tail. He only acted out because he’s afraid!” To the left, Muslims are the kittens and we’re the rotten little kids, and if we’d just stop scaring them, they’d curl up in our laps and purr away. Well, here’s a novel thought: Maybe the fear isn’t such a bad thing. The more the West has mollycoddled its Muslim population, the worse things have gotten. Let the Bastards Be Scared

Today, the French president is out there welcoming 30,000 new suicide bombers into France.There’s simply no way they can keep importing Muslims and remain France.
They know this, at some level, which is why they put in jail anyone who points it out. Holland says, “France will remain a country of freedom” unless you’re opposed to the Muslim invasion. Then it is not a free country. Because the people in charge have defined themselves in such a way that open borders is the only option, they must implement these sorts of polices in order to prevent mayhem. The Muslims will adapt and find new ways to blow themselves up in public. That means new restrictions.

President Obama and other politicians have consistently failed us. Just hours before the attacks in Paris, President Obama said ISIS has been contained.

And now he’s preparing to let hundreds of thousands of refugees from Syria into the United States. I will stop illegal immigration. We’ll build a wall on the southern border. And yes, I will also quickly and decisively bomb the hell out of ISIS. We’ll rebuild our military and make it so strong no one, and I mean no one, will mess with us.

– and have succumbed to the inevitable brain damage. They now merely drivel transparent clickbait that can have no purpose but to further enrage sane people.

The Dalai Lama on Paris: "God would say, solve it yourself because you created it in the first place."
I am a Buddhist and I believe in praying. But humans have created this problem, and now we are asking God to solve it. It is illogical. God would say, solve it yourself because you created it in the first place. We need a systematic approach to foster humanistic values, of oneness and harmony. If we start doing it now, there is hope that this century will be different from the previous one. It is in everybody’s interest. So let us work for peace within our families and society, and not expect help from God, Buddha or the governments. -- Quartz
How loathsome, dangerous, and morbid is the corruption in the Media.It is part of the Democrat Party political machine, an organ of propaganda, and engine designed deliberately to deceive the people,
and it exasperates me that many an otherwise intelligent person allows himself to be deceived, and by such transparent and halfwitted tricks as the newsharlots routinely employ. The media machine is the enemy. Without them, the Leftists have no power, and the Jihadists have no support, no apologists, no smokescreens to hide their evil deeds, no propagandist to blame the Jews for daring to be the victims of these lunatic barbarian fanatics. The media are destroying the nation by addicting it to a diet of lies. Ben Carson Just Won my Support | John C. Wright's Journal
The end of cancerThat more people than necessary continue to die from cancer has nothing to do with ‘the failed war on cancer’
– a familiar refrain in the press – or a lack of scientific tools, which have begun to accumulate at a breathtaking pace. Rather, obstacles take the form of not using the tools we already have to cure more; a reluctance to drop outdated beliefs; bureaucratic battles among physicians and medical groups; and outdated regulation by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) whose policies hinder the innovations wrought by cancer drug‑development in recent years. These issues are well‑known to doctors and researchers, but many are reluctant to talk about them overtly for fear that they could damage their colleagues or their chances of getting a grant or drug application approved. – Vincent DeVita & Elizabeth DeVita-Raeburn – Aeon

If black lives really mattered, no one would need to say it.It would just be another item on the list of things everyone knows.
Instead, we have this organization financed by a foreign criminal (why is he still alive?) desperately trying to prove to the rest of us that black lives matter. To make matters worse, these protests are so futile that the activists feel it necessary to assault people in at their school, place of work or on public streets. Back in the summer these idiots were showing up at breakfast joints in SWPLville desperately trying to get people, who should be sympathetic, to pay attention. Instead they just called the cops and added security. Sharper Than a Serpent’s Tooth | The Z Blog

Sometimes war is the answer. It depends on the question.Japan lost an estimated 4.5 million out of 71 million. It would have lost more,
but the Emperor surrendered when a pair of atomic bombs convinced him that we were willing to do whatever it took to win. Let us not fool ourselves into thinking that a similar defeat could not be inflicted on the Islamic State, on Iran, and any other nation that treats the West as an enemy. War, real war, is decisive. It is we who are not decisive. We, the West, presently lack the will to wage real war. War Is The Answer | EveryJoe
Totten: France’s “Merciless” Response to ISIS is Anything But
He casually strolled up to a bunch of British tourists on the beach and murdered 38 of them with a Kalashnikov. The police shot and killed him, of course, and dozens of local Tunisians tried to stop him and even volunteered as human shields, but the damage was already done.

Diversity is so important that we have to just accept a few 9/11-scale terror attacks a year in order to welcome Muslims into America.There are over 50 majority Muslim countries practicing every conceivable brand of Islam.
There’s no need to have them in America so let’s take all necessary steps to keep them out. That’s about as reasonable as one can expect, given the circumstances. If you have rats in your house you want the rats removed and they access points closed. The counter argument is that only small number of Muslims will go bonkers and commit mass murder. -- Z Blog
Yes, we are at war with Islam And always have been.If you have a few percent of Muslims, you have what you can pretend is a major crime problem.
If you have ten to thirty percent, you have a low level civil war, which intermittently becomes a high level civil war whenever you relax or show signs of weakness. If you have thirty percent, you can have a fairly tense peace, like the not-quite-war in Mindanao if you have a large well disciplined military, guards and soldiers everywhere, and regularly and routinely deploy death squads, but you cannot afford rule of law â you can have peace only by ruthlessly and unhesitatingly applying the laws of war. With a large Muslim minority you need death squads and the routine and frequent application of torture to keep the almost-peace, the not-quite-war. - - Jim's Blog

Despite the fact that America is engaged in military action in at least seven countriesit is apparently sufficient for president Obama to avoid deploying regular troops to evade the restrictions placed on activities designated as "war".
Though even that claim is questionable it spares the president from the need to explain his strategic goals to the American public or go before Congress to obtain an authorization for the use of military force. This ability to wage war-not-war creates an enormous shift of power away from Congress to the Executive Branch. The result is not the actual cessation of American wars but their continuation and proliferation by unaccountable and covert means. The collapse of whole countries, the widespread bombings, the confrontation between Russia, the US, Iran and the Gulf States, the generation of millions of refugees from South Asia and MENA, not even counting the 2 million displaced persons in Ukraine are phenomena inexplicable under the theory that Obama has restored peace to the world.Telling the truth about our military actions | Belmont Club

As I watch the great masses outpouring their fake grief in fits of populist emotion,I realize that they, much more than any Muslim fanatics, have determined what that future will be.
They are, in the strictest sense, de-moralized. The fact that they indulge in the sacrilege of godless “candlelight vigils” is an indication of how far gone they are: to a mess no longer within the human capacity to repair. They are — and have been for some time — completely incapable of defending what remains of our civilization, against a quite straightforward threat. They no longer even belong to what is, for them, only a museum relic. On candlelight vigils : Essays in Idleness
On candlelight vigilsThe refusal to deal with reality — and I mean hard-tack, material, worldly reality here —
is paradoxically the consequence of refusing to deal with spiritual realities. It comes home to us again as the fatuous displays of an affected grief continue in Paris, and sympathetically all over the West, as also in the cells of secular Westernization, elsewhere. Of course, many in the Islamic world are not soi-disant “grieving” at all. They are quietly, and in some places noisily, exulting. : Essays in Idleness
The New Protector of the West and the Free World: Putin vows payback, orders French cooperation after confirmation of Egypt plane bombA French defense official said Russia's realization that its plane had been felled by a bomb was a wake-up call for Moscow.
"What’s changed is less that France has changed, but that Russia has," said the official. "Russia has acknowledged that the plane was an attack carried out by Daesh (Islamic State). Russia ... is now beginning to say to itself that Daesh is also its enemy and has to be hit." Putin, in language reminiscent of how he talked about Chechen militants during a war when he came to power 15 years ago, ordered the secret services to hunt down those responsible. "We must do this without any statute of limitations and we must find out all their names. Anyone who tries to help the criminals should know that the consequences for trying to shelter them will lie completely on their shoulders." - - Reuters
Paris doesn’t need to give peace a chance. It doesn’t need to make love, not war.Paris — and more broadly, France and the West — needs more surveillance of suspected terrorists and police raids;
a more restrictive immigration policy that doesn’t create large, unassimilated Muslim populations, or welcome terrorists as refugees; and a serious, multi-layered campaign to destroy ISIS and deny it the safe havens from which it recruits, trains and plots against the West. If someone can come up with a catchy symbol for that, I’ll embrace it.

In Memoriam: Jihadi John
John's love was directing and starring in videos which he shared with his friends and released onto the Internet for the public. These low-budget shorts gained John notoriety for their uncompromising imagery and made him a much sought-after figure, particularly in the United States and in the United Kingdom. Although John's face was never seen in any of his videos, he was identified as Mohammed Emwazi, a British citizen who emigrated from Kuwait in 1994. Burial services for Jihadi John will be held Friday at an unmarked hole on the outskirts of Raqqa. Attendees to the funeral are asked to bring IR reflective clothing easily visible on satellite imagery. You are asked not to bring children to the funeral, although if you can't find a sitter, that's okay. No big deal. -- Something Awful
Chuck Norris: Paris is the confused beginning of World War IIIIf you weren’t convinced before, now you know what a disorganized World War III looks like from the six simultaneous Paris terror attacks by ISIS
that killed at least 129 precious souls and injured more than 300 more. And to think just a year ago, President Obama called ISIS “a jayvee team.” In fact, on Friday morning just before the attacks in Paris, President Obama again minimized ISIS’ power as he shared on “Good Morning America,” “I don’t think they’re gaining ground. What is true is that from the start, our goal has been first to contain, and we have contained them. … We’ve [also] made some progress in trying to reduce the flow of foreign fighters. …” Whoops. Another misdirected miscalculation. - - World War III?
If Only....Had we used our once overwhelming power, as often advocated in these pages,
to obliterate terrorist infrastructure and hold accountable countries in which it took root; had we set up compliant generals in Baghdad, wheeled the army left to do the same in Damascus, and settled safely along the Saudi-Iraqi border, with the promise to spring back if our clients proved uncooperative; had we not abandoned friendly regimes and factions in Iran, Turkey, and Egypt; had we struck Iranian nuclear manufacture before it sheltered in bedrock; had we retained more air wings and aircraft carriers and not cut the navy by more than half; had we been more supportive of allies; and had we refrained from promiscuous apology, and building nations with which we were at war...things would have been different.

Why France will do nothing about the Paris MassacreAn Algerian War against France’s homebred Muslim radicals isn’t an option. France can no longer find monsters like Generals Raoul Salan and Maurice Challe,
the commanders in Algeria during the 1950s who earlier had served the puppet regime of Marshall Petain during the Second World War. There is no-one left to clip on the electrodes. At the same time, France considers Israel’s occupation of Judea and Samaria so abhorrent that it has sponsored a resolution at the UN Security Council to impose a mandatory two-year deadline for the creation of a Palestinian State and Israel’s withdrawal from the West Bank. That leaves France in a pickle. If it can’t use the old French counter-terrorism model and abhors the Israeli counter-terrorism model, what can France do? The answer is: nothing. And that is just what France will do in response to last Friday’s attacks. : Spengler | Asia Times
If America does comparatively little the allies do even less. France was hardly doing its worst.While the head-hunting drones and aircraft might keep the weeds down in Syria and somewhat geographically contain the Islamic State they proved unable to seal up its ideas, infiltrators and secret agents.
Those had traveled to Europe via the Internet, the mosques, commercial air travel and the migrant trail. It is now believed the Paris attack was launched from a suburb of Brussels called Molenbeek, to which nearly every terrorist attack in Europe has been linked, and over which the Belgian interior minister claims no control. At least some of the attackers were furnished from the ranks of refugees streaming in from Syria. The planning itself may have used the chat feature of Playstation 4, which the French sleuths had not thought to tap. To use a medical analogy, the threat has metastized and spread beyond the region of preventive surgery. Unwillingly goaded into action | Belmont Club

The political class and their gentry enablers have earned the privilege of bleeding, suffering and dying along with the rest of the “lessers.”They desperately need to understand “accountability” for charging the weapon.
And no, we don’t mean “at the ballot box” or “being sacked from their cushy bureaucratic desk jobs.” They need to fear for their very lives when they offload cargo containers of jackals into the midst of people they have disarmed and cowed. They need to die in their homes like the peasants die. They need to be killed in the streets or at concerts or when riding home from work – they should meet their judgement whenever an opportunity arises – condemned in the same way they have condemned the serfs.

The Progressive religion that has evolved over the last half dozen generations shares much with Islam, including the thirst for blood.Look at the heroes of the American Left. The Weathermen were planting bombs blowing up innocent people. The Black Panthers were a racist murder squad.
The SDA existed to start riots on campus so they could burn down buildings and assault their enemies. Barak Obama was sponsored in politics by two former Weathermen, Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn. Obama has repeatedly said he is the man he is today because of these two people. The only material difference between the Weathermen and the guys who executed yesterday’s attack is that the later was better at it than the sniveling punks from the 70’s.

But it’s not free speech which has died.The pitiful remains you see here and the cries you are hearing in other places is the last wail of what was once a very great secular religion.
That god is dead, only spelled with a lower case “g”. Only a hundred years ago this religion thought it could transform the world. Today all it can manage is to turn itself into a spectacle. To paraphrase one of their founders, they intended to convey a tragedy but achieved the effect of farce. The victim’s death was gradual. It was lingering, painful — and despite everything — sad. In this instance, I believe the coroner will return the finding of suicide. Free speech you find unconscious in that bush over there. He will recover with any luck.

Okay, this coffee thing has gotten way, way out of hand.
Gesha is perhaps the most well-known single coffee variety in the world, though it is one of the rarest, and certainly the most unusual.

Cold brewing brings out something entirely unique in this coffee -- it's bright and clean, with notes of orange blossom, juice of papaya, and a sweet crème brûlée finish.

The most credible of these reports is the one where a group said that a single drunken white male (who may or may not have been a student) called them the n-word.

If it were up to me, I’d find it a violation of the due process clause to treat violation of regulatory statutes as a felony.
Historically, only the most serious crimes — typically carrying the death penalty — were felonies. Nowadays, though, we designate all sorts of trivial crimes, such as possessing an eagle feather, as felonies. This has the effect of empowering police and prosecutors at the expense of citizens, since it’s easy to find a felony if you look hard enough, and few citizens have the courage of a veteran like Cort, who went to trial anyway.

Quotation of the DayFrom Jonathan Last, in The Weekly Standard:
We have reached a bizarre moment in our politics, where the “progressive” left resists having conservative speakers on a college campus because they make students feel “unsafe,” but insists that boys who identify as girls be allowed to shower with girls in the public schools, and misgivings must be educated away, or litigated into submission.

Climate worship has a lot in common with fascism, particularly Nazism.Hitler was a vegan and a bit obsessed with living what we would consider to be the granola lifestyle.
The Germans, after all, did give us the Hippies. Instead of rubbing out the mongrel races threatening the folk, the Climate Nazis want to rub out those who threaten Gaia. This is not an exaggeration. There was a green wing to National Socialism and it was very influential. The mystique of blood and soil was exactly that, blood and soil. For the Nazis, the folk were inextricably bound up in the land. Romantic feelings toward nature were an essential part of the Nazi movement. Bill Nye The Nazi Guy | The Z Blog

With The ‘Transgender’ Movement, Liberalism Has Finally Descended Into Total MadnessThe Department of Education is very good at demonstrating why it shouldn’t exist.
It put on its most convincing display this week when it ruled — you know, like a court, except it’s not a court — that Illinois’ largest school district violated the “civil rights” of a gender-confused boy by not letting him use the girl’s locker room. The school district now has 30 days to force underage females to change in front of the “transgender” student, or it will lose funding. Clearly, this is the role our Founders envisioned for the federal government. I have a few points I’d like to make about this case. Let’s go through them one by one. 1. Barack Obama is facilitating the sexual abuse of underage children. - - Matt Walsh
What progressive ideas have in common is that when put into practice they seem to cause people to be miserable.
Multiculturalism removes people’s sense of comfort and community, replacing it with alienation and atomization.
Secularization may lower social capital. Egalitarianism makes people feel like failures because it offers them largely false hopes of rising socially. Sexual liberation is based on the contradiction of sexual equality and sexual freedom, which clash just as surely as economic freedom and equality; and intense sexual competition makes people unhappy, for as Houellebecq observed in a previous book, Whatever, a world in which sexual pleasure is made a pre-eminent good is one where the gaps between the haves and have-nots is magnified to a new dimension. -- CatholicHerald
People never steal anything useful like pellets.
People who want to steal things go inside the Walmart and try to steal televisions and iPhones, which are not useful, and go to jail for their trouble. There's 25 grand in pellets outside, but they want to steal a phone the company will give to you for free if you sign up for cellphone service. I think that proves that tattoo ink interferes with normal brain function, because everyone in the police blotter has a visible tattoo on their neck. Sippican Cottage: Sixteen Tons and Whaddaya Get?
Environmental Study Finds Air In Chicago Now 75% Bullets
“Far exceeding the levels of carbon dioxide, nitrogen, and even oxygen, bullets now constitute three-fourths of Chicago’s air supply,” said atmospheric scientist and study co-author John Molina, stressing that the dense and widespread deposits of jacketed lead and copper in the air pose severe and potentially fatal health risks to all Chicago residents. -- Source

Islam is demented because it is all about Muhammad
by epileptic fits caused by a malformed temporal lobe. He was a psychopath as well, a lethal combination that led him down the path of pathological evil. Islam represents the institutionalized version of his neurological and psychological disorders.... The fundamental problem with Islam is the belief that God talked to Muhammad and dictated the contents of the Koran to him. Muslims are indoctrinated into believing this is so, and they act on the numerous incitements to violence that they find in it. - - | It's All About Muhammad
Nobel awarded to feminist bloggers for discovery of ‘nanoaggressions’
In a November 2013 blog post, Lehdi and Hader named this phenomenon nanoaggressivity and theorized that bursts of bias zipping through men’s neural networks at lightening speeds might be causing them to emit ghostlike, sexist particles that actual demean women, even as men themselves are unaware of them.— The Dandy Goat

Optimism and positive expectations create money where there was none before.
That thing is glowing with optimism. If it gets into the Oval Office, a billion souls will change their expectation about the economy of the planet. And not one of them will be adjusting their expectations downward. Economics and Expectations (with a Trump point) | Scott Adams Blog

she needs to be arrested, tried for Crimes Against Humanity and Crimes Against Peace, and upon conviction, be offered the sacraments and then put up against a wall and shot.

As with most civilizations that collapse, the end will be a surprise to anyone who is vested within the system, but to no one else.All of these grand plans are collapsing at once in multiple ways.
The governments of Europe and the United States are broke and dependent on selling their own loans as their currencies plummet in value; they can never pay their obligations to their own citizens, much less their insane pension debts. Crime is rising and our ability to suppress it failing; diversity is detonating in the same way it did in the 1860s, 1920s, and 1960s; corruption of our government by moneyed interests increases and public services decline, while the dollar and euro steadily leak value. Liberalism self-destructs
Our nations’s colleges are totalitarian institutions controlled by radicals who hate America almost as much as they hate God.
An obvious reason for the blatant bias of the mainstream media is that all the university professors who train journalists are Obama voters.
Go to Northwestern University or Columbia University and try to find a Republican on the communications, journalism or political science faculty. Think about this: Who is the most successful radio broadcaster of the past 25 years? Rush Limbaugh. Has any university communications department in America ever asked Rush Limbaugh to lecture their students? American Academia Is a Corrupt Racket : The Other McCain

Origin of "Stupid Party" & "Evil Party"“We have two parties here, and only two. One is the evil party, and the other is the stupid party. I’m very proud to be a member of the stupid party. Occasionally, the two parties get together to do something that’s both evil and stupid. That’s called bipartisanship.” -- M. Stanton Evans

Magic Dirt Theory. The cause of and cure for all that ails the Progressive mind.
If the whites raise an objection to having their neighbors owning pitbulls or having loud parties on week nights, it is just proof that the horrible bad whites are trying to deny blacks access to the magic dirt. The only solution is to redouble efforts to transplant more blacks into places like Ferguson Missouri. If the magic dirt does not take, then it just shows how powerful the magic of racism really is and why the good thinkers must never quit trying to beat back the bad thinkers. Impractical Magic
Bullets are nice, but much of political power—maybe most of it—comes from successfully instilling fear and guilt in your opponents.Fear and guilt can disable people more quickly than mustard gas.
But once the fear of being smeared with meaningless words evaporates, the rest is easy. That’s the main task—getting people over the fear of being called bad names. The rest is as easy as tossing darts at party balloons; people merely need to conquer the fear of what they’ll be called once they start tossing those darts. The Fear of Being Called Phobic

The Death of the American Welfare State
Aside from the demographic disparity in worker ages is a subtler disparity in worker productivity and independence as senior citizens are left chasing social spending dollars that are increasingly going to a younger population. ObamaCare with its Medicare Advantage cuts was a bellwether of the shift in health care spending from seniors to the welfare population. - - Sultan Knish
