DC Responsible for Refugee Crisis

The District of Columbia is Mordor come to life. Like its fictional counterpart, it is the source of much evil in the world. I've been arguing that for a long time (see here and here, for example). Now Germany's deputy chancellor Sigmar Gabriel, in an attempt to defend Angela Merkel, says the real problem is DC's policy of endless war against Muslims in the Middle East:

Responding to Trump’s comments that Merkel had made an “utterly catastrophic mistake by letting all these illegals into the country”, [German deputy chancellor] Gabriel said the increase in the number of people fleeing the Middle East to seek asylum in Europe had partially been a result of US-led wars destabilising the region.

“There is a link between America’s flawed interventionist policy, especially the Iraq war, and the refugee crisis, that’s why my advice would be that we shouldn’t tell each other what we have done right or wrong, but that we look into establishing peace in that region and do everything to make sure people can find a home there again,” Gabriel said.
Think how much better off the world will be when the steam inevitably runs out of the Evil Empire.

Globalism is killing us

Literally. Open borders and international travel have created a global petri dish that's breediing all sorts of virulent and antibiotic-resistant bacteria:

A US woman has died from an infection that was resistant to all 26 available antibiotics, health officials said this week, raising new concerns about the rise of dangerous superbugs.

The woman, who was in her 70s, died in Nevada in September, and had recently been hospitalized in India with fractured leg bones, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported.

Experts said she had been treated repeatedly in India during the last two years for a femur fracture and hip problems, most recently in June 2016. ...

Once the bacteria was identified in Nevada, the patient was isolated to prevent the infection from spreading in the hospital. ...

According to Nick Thomson, leader of the bacterial genomics and evolution group at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute in England, this bacteria is likely to become more and more resistant.

"The report highlights international travel and treatment overseas as a feature in the introduction of this pan-resistant isolate into the USA," he said.
Read that last sentence again and ask yourself if a borderless world is really a good idea.

No evidence that teacher assaulted a Muslim kindergartener

I couldn't help but roll my eyes in disbelief when this story first came out. Really now: a kindergarterner was abused in class because he was Muslim? It was so over-the-top and so obviously contrived that only public school officials and civil rights activists could believe it. I mean really, we're supposed to believe a PUBLIC SCHOOL TEACHER, the most politically correct of all creatures, assaulted a 5 year old because he was Muslim? Please. Fortunately, police were able to clear the accused teacher:

Police found no evidence to confirm a November report that a teacher bullied and assaulted a Muslim kindergartener at David Cox Road Elementary, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools reported Friday.

Principal Celeste Spears-Ellis notified parents that the accused teacher has returned to the classroom after the District Attorney’s Office found “no evidence of an assault other than the complainant’s report” and no grounds for criminal charges.

The incident made national news in November when the Council on American-Islamic Rights wrote to the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction alleging that the teacher “continuously harassed and recently assaulted” a 5-year-old boy in her class. The letter, dated Nov. 21, said the teacher had grabbed the boy by the neck and choked him on Nov. 16. It said she had also failed to prevent classmates from bullying the boy and forced him to carry a large backpack filled with textbooks and headphones
But the story wasn't too over-the-top for the Council on American-Islamic Rights, which has mutated into a jittery, bellicose group just as capable as the NAACP of shrill tantrums and over-rehearsed paranoia. Guess this little incident should burst their credibility. But do you think the corporate media will probe the next such report? Do they EVER learn?

Welcome to our glorious multicultural future, with every ethnic group clamoring to be recognized as an oppressed minority.

Trump nemesis Rosie O’Donnell calls for martial law

In case anyone out there imagined leftists were pro-freedom, pro-democracy, blah, blah, blah, take a look at Rosie O'Donnell's dream scenario for stopping Donald Trump:

Donald Trump ripped Rosie O’Donnell during the first Republican presidential debate in 2015, saying that she was the only woman about whom he had ever made disparaging comments.

Now, with less than 10 days until Trump takes the oath of office, O’Donnell says that she’d support “martial law” in order to delay his inauguration.

“FULLY SUPPORT IMPOSING MARTIAL LAW – DELAYING THE INAUGURATION – UNTIL TRUMP IS ‘CLEARED’ OF ALL CHARGES,” O’Donnell wrote in response to a Twitter user who suggested the U.S. military take control of the government until the president-elect can prove he has no financial ties to Russia.


— ROSIE (@Rosie) January 12, 2017
Where exactly is the provision in the Constitution for imposing martial law? And is there a sub-section specifying how Hollywood actors have that authority? Beats me -- but then, I've never been able to find the amendment that gives illegal aliens the right to ignore US borders, or for people claiming they're "transgender" getting the power to nullify both local laws and social mores.

A Window Into a Depraved Culture

Heather Mac Donald, the most courageous and insightful analyst of our age, offers a stunning and eye-opening interpretation of the significance of the Chicago torture story. Mac Donald argues that the official racial narrative in this country is a stew of platitudes and hallucinations. Ta-Nehesi Coates exemplifies and parrots that narrative, which maintains that all the problems in the Black community are the fault of Whites, whose sole aim is to oppress and murder "black bodies." That's Coates's opinion, an opinion shared by all right-thinking commentators. But the facts, which Mac Donald amply provides, tell a different story:

Black Lives Matter ideology is just a more in-your-face manifestation of the Coatesian conceit that blacks are living in a system determined to destroy them. The Chicago Black Lives Matter chapter embraces the motto “Stop killing us,” aimed at the Chicago Police Department. It chants: “CPD, KKK: How many children did you kill today?” (The answer is: Virtually none. Last year, over 3,400 people in Chicago were shot, overwhelmingly black. Victims included 24 children 12 years of age or younger. The Chicago cops shot 25 people, virtually all armed and dangerous, or .6 percent of the total.)
As gruesome as the Chicago torture video is, Mac Donald's interpretation is even more jarring -- and critical, if we are to change the suicidal path American policymakers have so foolishly chosen.

Forget fake news; the real issue is fake “hate.”

Ann Coulter tears into the SPLC's vacuous claims about a rash of hate crimes against minorities since the election. As you'd expect, Ann takes no prisoners while deploying the cold, hard facts against the SPLC's breathless (but profitable) fearmongering:

Has there been one (1) documented hate crime committed by white people against any hue in the Rainbow Coalition since Nov. 8? That’s out of the 9,456,723 hate crimes alleged by America’s leading hate group, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).

The SPLC is to “hate” what Rolling Stone is to rape. It is the biggest peddler of fantasies since Walt Disney.

I’ve read through dozens of SPLC “hate crimes” and they are all lies. The Muslim girls in particular seem to be very spirited liars.

Since the election, there have been vivid stories from across the nation of Trump supporters tearing off Muslim girls’ hijabs — at the University of Michigan (since retracted), Louisiana State University (also retracted), San Diego State University (that too was retracted), the New York City subway (again: retracted), and the University of New Mexico (no witnesses, won’t reveal attacker’s name or report the incident for investigation).
The bizarre thing about this alleged wave of anti-minority hate crimes is that these minorities are portrayed as defenseless, vulnerable saints who are brutalized by bullying, all-powerful Whites. In fact, the current climate is so tilted against Whites and for minorities that a professor at a major university can publicly advocate "white genocide" and defenders will rise up in his defense in the name of academic freedom. Coulter concludes her article with a scathing look at just how far-fetched most of the SPLC's claims really are -- something to keep in mind as the media issues more such reports. And we know they will.

If you want to read about a REAL hate crime, check out this incident from Chicago:

Chicago investigators are questioning four African-Americans after a Facebook Live video shows a group of people torturing a white mentally disabled man while someone yelled “F*** Trump!” and “F*** white people!”

Chicago police were made aware of the video Tuesday afternoon. A young African American woman streamed the video live on Facebook showing at least four people holding the young white man hostage.

Okay, SPLC, there's the genuine article. Fire up your press kits and let the releases fly!

Morris Dees, call your office

The Southern Poverty Law Center regularly beats the drums whenever it detects "hate," but it REALLY works itself into a lather when it uncovers anything that remotely smacks of "anti-Semitism."

So I'm sure the SPLC's flying monkeys will take to the skies and unleash an all-out assault against those foul miscreants the Simon Wiesenthal Center has determined are responsible for THE WORST anti-Semitic incident of 2016:

The US abstention from a recent vote against Israeli settlements at the UN Security Council topped the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s annual list released Tuesday of the 10 worst outbreaks of Jew-hatred and anti-Israel incidents.

The Jewish human rights organization ranked the Obama administration’s move as the top case, charging that it erased Jewish history.
Forget such pikers as David Irving, the American Nazi Party, or the laughably inept and nearly extinct KKK. No, it's the Obama administration and its supporters who have committed the worst attack on Jews in a year full of shock and violence. Any second now, the SPLC will issue a press release condemning the Democratic Party as a hate group. Here it comes -- wait for it ...

Scientists on brink of bringing back extinct beasts...

Oh, they mean beasts such as aurochs. When I first saw the headline, I thought it meant scientists had found a way to bring back conservative Democrats.

Fix Immigration. It’s What Voters Want.

Despite my reservations about Donald Trump as president, one solid benefit of his win is that immigration control is now an open topic for discussion. For decades, all immigration was touted as an unqualified good. Now that the gulp! New York Times is featuring an immigration control article, the topic has clearly emerged from the shadows:

Yet many powerful industries benefit from such immigration. They’re arguing that immigration controls are creating a low-skilled labor shortage.

These same industries contend that stricter immigration enforcement will further shrink the pool of workers and raise their wages. They argue that closing our borders to inexpensive foreign labor will force employers to add benefits and improve workplace conditions to attract and keep workers already here.

I have an answer to these charges: Exactly.

Higher wages, better benefits and more security for American workers are features, not bugs, of sound immigration reform. For too long, our immigration policy has skewed toward the interests of the wealthy and powerful: Employers get cheaper labor, and professionals get cheaper personal services like housekeeping. We now need an immigration policy that focuses less on the most powerful and more on everyone else.
I remember when the Occupy movement hit the streets protesting income inequality. And they had a point -- the system is indeed rigged to favor the top 2%. But one of the things those protesters failed to grasp is that the chief reason the middle class has been slipping is the elite's support for open borders and the cheap, exploitable labor that policy guarantees. Cesar Chavez, an icon of the left, militantly advocated for tight immigration controls because the agribusiness owners he confronted wanted the borders open so they could keep wages and benefits low.

But the days when leftists stand up for "workers" have vanished. Even those on the left who understand the impact of uncontrolled immigration on wages don't care; they're so full of hate for whites they can't wait for American demographics to shift toward a brown majority and the utopia they imagine that will herald.

What does Third-World immigration bring us?

Terror cells, for one thing. And that's not coming from the usual immigration restriction activists, but from a federal judge and a team of federal prosecutors in Minneapolis:

In sentencing nine young Somali-Minnesotans on terror conspiracy charges this week, U.S. District Judge Michael Davis closed a chapter in the federal government’s long, extraordinary investigation of ISIL recruitment in Minnesota.

“Everyone talks about Brussels or Paris having cells,” Davis said one day, then, raising his voice: “We have a cell here in Minneapolis.”

Saying the Minnesota public had “danced around” the issue, Davis described the cell’s size as being between nine to 20, including those sentenced last week and others killed abroad.

Federal prosecutors seemed to share Davis’ conviction. In an unusual development on Wednesday, they asked that two defendants, Mohamed Farah and Abdirahman Daud, be returned to the courtroom after their hearings were finished. Prosecutors said both men flashed index fingers pointed upward as they faced the gallery on their way out, an apparent symbol of “tawhid” that symbolizes an Islamic concept of “oneness of God” but is also a popular symbol used by ISIL supporters.
Muslim immigration -- the gift that keeps on giving, whether you want it or not.

Richard Adams, RIP

Sad news from Britain. Author Richard Adams has died:

The author of Watership Down, Richard Adams, has died aged 96, his daughter has said.

Juliet Johnson said her father had been "ailing for some time" but "died peacefully" on Christmas Eve.

Watership Down, a children's classic about a group of rabbits in search of a new home after their warren was destroyed, was first published in 1972.

Adams was 52 when he wrote it, after first telling the story to his two daughters on a long car journey.

It went on to become a best-seller, with tens of millions of copies bought around the world.
Adams felt a special connection with animals. His classic tale Traveller, about General Robert E. Lee's horse, is one that should be in every Southern home. From Richard Adams' official web site:

Traveller, the war-horse of the great Confederate general Robert E. Lee is dreaming away his last months in a stable in retirement. Old and almost blind, his last remaining animal friend, Tom Cat, is his sole audience as he reminisces about the days of fear, courage, blood and horror in the camps and battlefields of the Civil War. Traveller describes the scenes of the war as a horse would sense them, and tries to draw out the dimly-understood threads of his beloved master's struggles against their deadly enemy - the Blue men.

Quote of the day

"All I Want for Christmas is White Genocide. To clarify: when the whites were massacred during the Haitian revolution, that was a good thing indeed." George Ciccariello-Maher, professor of history and politics at Drexel University.

There's something about these folks with double-barrelled names ...

China rediscovers itself

Wednesday we noted how the world-wide reawakening of deep-rooted, historical identity is manifesting itself in India. This article from the Economist discusses how the ostensible communist regime in China has evolved from internationalism to an energetic nationalism based on ethnic pride:

Ethnicity is central to China’s national identity. It is the Han, 1.2bn of them in mainland China alone, that most people refer to as “Chinese”, rather than the country’s minorities, numbering 110m people. Ethnicity and nationality have become almost interchangeable for China’s Han, says James Leibold of La Trobe University in Melbourne, Australia. That conflation is of fundamental importance. It defines the relations between the Han and other ethnic groups. By narrowing its legal labour market almost entirely to people of Han descent, ethnicity is shaping the country’s economy and development. And it strains foreign relations, too. Even ethnic Han whose families left for other countries generations ago are often regarded as part of a coherent national group, both by China’s government and people.
Abstract, vapory slogans cannot inspire meaning and identity in the human soul. The crusade to erase historical identity and replace it with appeals to "tolerance" and "multiculturalism" has turned shrill and overbearing because it has no natural, innate appeal. Nationalism, however, most definitely does. That's why leftist movements resort to authoritarian government and intimidation; nothing else can implement their anti-human agenda.

A world of voluntary, small city-states and region-states will be more free, more prosperous, and more peaceful. I say, bring it on.

Pro-Secession Group Opens California ‘Embassy’ In Moscow

The paradigm of the unified, coercive megastate dominated most of the 19th and 20th centuries. But you know what? That bloody and inhuman age has passed. The latest manifestation of the new age of smaller, human-scaled political units comes from the Bear Republic, aka California. The Golden State is asserting its right to self-government rather theatrically:

If California voters ever decide to secede from the United States, they could have at least one partner on the international stage: Russia.

The Yes California Independence Campaign – which is leading an effort to bring a secession initiative to the 2019 ballot – opened what the group called a cultural center and “people’s embassy” in Moscow this week.

The San Diego-based group first launched the initiative following Donald Trump’s resounding election night victory and garnered support from Silicon Valley investor Shervin Pishevar, who says the world’s sixth-largest economy would have no trouble competing as an independent state on the global stage.
That sound you here is George Soros gnashing his false teeth.

ISIS 'kill list' includes 1,700 Americans, churches, and synagogue members

In the wake of the Christmas massacre in Berlin, this warning about new ISIS-led attacks on Western civilians demands quick action.

Never fear! Your guardians in DC know exactly what to do, as this USA Today headline shows: U.S. surpasses Syrian refugee goal set by Obama, expects more next year

See? Nothing to worry about.

Authorities Suspect Voter Intimidation in Burning, Vandalism of Mississippi Church

Chilling headline, huh? Yes, last month, an arsonist struck a black church in Greenville, Mississippi. The Southern Poverty Law Center wasn't there, but they claimed to have a magic way of knowing who was responsible, and why they did it: Trump supporters wanted to oppress black people, and keep them from voting for Hillary Clinton! After all, everyone knows the best way to score votes for your candidate is to burn a church. Besides, Trump supporters always sign their work, right? There couldn't be any doubt that it was voter intimidation. From Hatewatch:

Fire fighters arrived to find Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church “heavily engulfed in flames” with the words “Vote Trump” spray-painted on the side of the building, according to Mayor Errick Simmons, who spoke at a press conference Wednesday morning.

“This kind of attack happened in the 1950s, and 1960s, but it shouldn’t happen in 2016,” Simmons said. “Last night’s attack appears to be a race crime: the church has always been a symbol of the black community and a place for communication around civil rights, the same rights black communities were deprived.”
The moral and intellectual aristocracy who broadcast their indignation and morality in the Hatewatch comments section was quick to add its two cents' worth. A sampling:

Mary • 2 months ago

Stay strong, Greenville. Please don't let this stop you from voting.

Reporter Aron Pax • 2 months ago

Given that the Ku Klux Klan has endorsed Trump and that the Klan has a history of burning black churches and terrorizing the community, isn't it just possible that this arson is exactly what it appears to be? The "dumbest racist" Klansman also knows that his endorsement hurts Trump, but that doesn't keep him from doing it.
And so on. But that was then. Authorities have finally arrested the perp. It's a black man who's also a member of the congregation. Doh!

I'm sure the SPLC will send a formal apology to President-elect Donald Trump and his supporters. Any second now ... wait for it ...

The Cult of the Hindu Cowboy

Yes, you read that correctly; there is a growing movement of patriotic Indians who call themselves Hindu cowboys. But instead of branding, herding, and driving their cows to market, these men see themselves as gau rakshaks, or cow protectors. These sacred cows have some VERY dedicated protectors:

The cowboy believes, most of all, in holy war against everyone whose culture approves the killing of the blessed bovine – Muslims, Christians, Hindu outcastes. The cow is for him a symbol not just of Hinduism, but of India itself. He believes the time has come to cleanse the country of cow-eaters.

As the motto of India’s fiercest band of cowboys puts it, ‘To protect our culture and our civilization, we must do as the Vedas say. And the Vedas tell us this – if an infidel kills a cow, we are to pump his body with bullets.’
This is just another instance of the popular backlash against the anonymity, rootlessness, and dead conformity of globalism. Take that, George Soros.

ISIS claims responsibility for Berlin Terror attack

Here we go again. This time, a terrorist from Pakistan plowed into a Christmas celebration in Berlin:

Nine people are dead and about 50 injured after a truck rammed into a crowd in Kurf├╝rstendamm when the lorry careened through the stalls.

Officials said the truck's passenger died at the scene while a suspect, possibly the driver, was taken into custody.

I couldn't help but curse when I saw this:

German chancellor Angela Merkel is "in deep grief over the dead and hope the injured can be saved."

Hey, Frau Merkel, do you have any concern about those who haven't yet fallen victim to the terrorists you've brought into Germany? This woman needs to be impeached and then tried for aiding and abetting terror.

Charlotte council repeals controversial ‘bathroom’ non-discrimination ordinance

The radical city ordinance that sparked the HB2 bill is no more. From the Charlotte Observer:

A Charlotte City Council Monday voted Monday to repeal its controversial non-discrimination ordinance, commonly known as the ‘bathroom’ ordinance. The council met earlier in the morning with with Charlotte area lawmakers.

The ordinance was pushed through the council in early 2016, just months into Mayor Jennifer Roberts’ tenure, and required businesses to allow people to use the bathroom corresponding to their gender identity.

In response, Republicans in the North Carolina General Assembly convened a one-day special session to pass its own legislation that rendered Charlotte’s ordinance null.
The original ordinance had nothing to do with protecting anyone's rights; it was instead a thrust for Cultural Marxism and against traditional society. There wasn't any crisis of "trannies" being victimized that the ordinance addressed. In fact, these people have EVERY right anyone else possesses. What the ordinance did was to give certain people the power to bulldoze social norms. That is NOT a legitimate right.

I wish I could say this was the end of the battle, but I doubt it.

Star Bores!

Don't hate the latest Star Wars movie because it's anti-White. Hate it because it's bad and boring:

“Star Wars” movies have been dazzling, infuriating, heartbreaking, silly, witty, convoluted, gripping and overblown. But until “Rogue One: A Star Wars” story, I don’t think “dull” was the most appropriate adjective.

“Dull” is a vague word, so let’s break it down: hackneyed, repetitive, unsurprising, under-characterized. This tale, placed chronologically between episodes three and four, has no reason to exist. We know the rebels will get plans that let them destroy the Death Star in “A New Hope.” Who cares how they did it, when the storytelling is so pedestrian?
This scathing review, by the way, is from the Charlotte Observer's Lawrence Toppman, who I can assure you is NOT an alt-right reviewer.

Richest Counties in U.S. Are Suburbs of D.C.

How about that? The four richest counties in the DC Empire are clustered around DC. It pays to live close to The Capitol, where tribute from all the conquered districts flows inward.

Gun control stalwart lawmaker Chaka Fattah gets 10 years for racketeering

Uh-oh. Another Democrat's been caught with his hand in the cookie jar:

Former U.S. Rep. Chaka Fattah, the 11-term Pennsylvania congressman and longtime advocate for more gun regulation, was sentenced Monday on a host of bribery charges.

U.S. District Judge Harvey Bartle III sentenced Fattah, 60, this week following conviction in June on racketeering, bribery, wire fraud, honest services fraud and money laundering conspiracies. Bartle handed down a sentence of 120 months in prison and ordered the former lawmaker to pay some $600,000 in restitution.

Born Arthur Davenport in Philadelphia, his mother changed his name to Chaka Fattah to acknowledge their African ethnicity when he was a child. Fattah, a Democrat, was elected to the Pennsylvania House of Representatives from the West Philly area in 1983 and left the state legislature in 1994 when he defeated U.S. Rep. Lucien Edward Blackwell for Pennsylvania’s 2nd district, a seat he held for 22 years until he resigned following his conviction.
Remember, money doesn't break racketeering laws, greedy politicians break racketeering laws.

‘I Am a Gay Mixed-Race Woman. I Am Intimidated By These Students’

This would be funny if it wasn't so creepy. Leftist professors are finding themselves increasingly threatened by the lunatic radicalism of the very students they helped radicalize:

I teach at Reed. I am intimidated by these students. I am scared to teach courses on race, gender, or sexuality, or even texts that bring these issues up in any way—and I am a gay mixed-race woman. There is a serious problem here and at other [selective liberal arts colleges], and I'm at a loss as to how to begin to address it, especially since many of these students don't believe in either historicity or objective facts. (They denounce the latter as being a tool of the white cisheteropatriarchy.)
I predict these bratty social justice warriors will burn themselves out the same way their role models in the Chinese Cultural Revolution did. In the meantime, we should sit back and enjoy the spectacle of the children of the Revolution devouring their parents.

So Who Is Prompting "Faithless Electors" To Dump Trump?

Friends of Hillary, Bill, and Barack are busy at work trying to destroy "our democracy" by refusing to abide by the results of the election. Hillary said that for Trump to do that would be a threat, but it seems that it's no threat if she does it. Double Standard??? A hard-hitting post by Al Benson, Jr.

From the Department of "Oops!"

Green Party loon Jill Stein knew something was wrong with the presidential election count in Michigan, but the problem wasn't what she thought:

Green Party nominee Jill Stein’s presidential vote recount in Michigan may have turned up massive voter irregularities — in the Democratic stronghold of Detroit.

Now it’s Republican leaders who are demanding an investigation to determine why a third of the city’s voting machines registered more ballots than actual voters, the Detroit News reported.

Ruth Johnson, the Republican secretary of state, is launching an audit.

Republican state Sen. Patrick Colbeck called the probe a good start on the suspicious results turned up in Detroit, which Hillary Clinton won with 95 percent of the vote.
Too funny!

How California can wave goodbye to the US

Paul Moreno teaches constitutional history at Hillsdale College. His ideas on how California could break away from the DC Empire are worth serious consideration. From Fox:

Why couldn’t we cede California back for, say, $415 million (what $15 million in 1848 dollars is worth today)? Maybe that’s what candidate Trump and Mexican President Nieto were talking about last summer. The proceeds would pay for the border wall after all. San Francisco wouldn’t need to be a “sanctuary city” for Mexican illegals, it would be part of Mexico again.

While easier than “unanimous consent,” retrocession would be difficult if it required an old-fashioned treaty and ratification by two-thirds of the Senate. While President Obama would feel free to retrocede by “executive agreement” with his “pen and phone,” President-elect Trump would have proper constitutional scruples.
Dr. Moreno also argues California could reclaim its independence if the other States agree. No objection from me.
