And the prophets of doom 'n gloom predicted a tsunami of woe if Britain reclaimed its sovereignty. In fact, the growth has exceeded expectations.
As I've stressed before, BOTH presidential candidates scare me. But Hillary is looking scarier all the time. And this exclusive from Reuters reveals just how bad things could get under Hillary:
U.S. Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said on Tuesday that Democrat Hillary Clinton's plan for Syria would "lead to World War Three," because of the potential for conflict with military forces from nuclear-armed Russia. In an interview focused largely on foreign policy, Trump said defeating Islamic State is a higher priority than persuading Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to step down, playing down a long-held goal of U.S. policy. Trump questioned how Clinton would negotiate with Russian President Vladimir Putin after demonizing him; blamed President Barack Obama for a downturn in U.S. relations with the Philippines under its new president, Rodrigo Duterte; bemoaned a lack of Republican unity behind his candidacy, and said he would easily win the election if the party leaders would support him.On a more positive note, Trump has voiced opposition to DC's endless interventionism, particularly the mad quest to impose democracy on nations with no cultural foundation for American-style democracy. And then there's the growing sentiment, as enunciated by Thomas Sowell, that as risky as a Trump presidency might be, Hillary at the helm would be almost certain disaster.

Here's the email I received today: Good Morning, We have had some reports in the area where political signs have been damaged stolen ect..

Happy Wednesday! **Reminder everyone has cameras so stay off people’s property too**

Ilana Mercer points out the Trojan Horse in Hillary Clinton's radical immigration scheme:
The present ideology on immigration considers all whites, rich or poor, a privileged, “fungible monolith.” This outlook brooks little or no consideration of lives lived in penury for over a century. In particular: It overlooks the descendants of poor white Southern sharecroppers who did not own slaves, but were devastated by the War Between the States both “in human and economic terms.” Even now, this sizeable segment of the South has yet to recover; its attainments with respect to education and income mirror those of the region’s African-Americans, with one distinction: poor whites are barred from affirmative action programs.Of course, we can't blame the entire massive rip-off on HRC; George W. Bush's 2007 Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act almost squeaked through, thanks to strong-arming from Band of Traitors members Lindsey Graham, John McCain, and Ted Kennedy. As we've noted in previous posts, screwing Traditional America is a bipartisan game.
"Voting for an out of control egomaniac like Donald Trump would be like playing Russian roulette with the future of this country. Voting for someone with a track record like Hillary Clinton’s is like putting a shotgun to your head and pulling the trigger." - Thomas Sowell

$4.6 million. That's the immediate cost of last month's riots in Charlotte. But that's just the beginning. While the cleanup and repairs were just getting started, the usual suspects began spinning the violence for political ends. One Charlotte councilman, Ed Driggs, informed the city council that the "unrest" was caused by "racial inequality in housing, jobs and other social areas," and that the riots were a “cry of despair.”
Charlotte rioters despairing
The Charlotte Observer's editorial staff took the opportunity to issue an "We told you so!" proclamation:
But we already know the broad outlines of what must be done. We’ve been talking about it for decades. We need to counter the isolation and marginalization of the poor, including the working poor, by mixing more affordable housing throughout the city, suburban areas included. We need to counter the resegregation of schools, either with redrawn school boundary lines or new magnet schools or some combination. We need to connect people in the struggling neighborhoods west, north and east of uptown with good jobs and new hope. ... Making headway against deep-rooted inequities is never easy, as civil rights lawyer James Ferguson said Tuesday evening during a WFAE-FM panel discussion on the unrest. “We have to work for it, with intentionality,” he said. Some will resist. They will ask why their families should sacrifice to help solve the problems of others. It’s not an unreasonable question. But, as we learned so painfully in recent weeks, the problems across town eventually become everyone’s problems.All the "social justice" lobbying groups heard a loud and clear "ka-ching!" This week, Charlotte picked Marcus D. Jones as its new city manager. Kim Eagle, the city’s director of strategy and budget, had been a favored candidate, but she's White. As the Observer put it, "Jones will be the city’s first African-American manager. His hiring comes at a crucial time for Charlotte, which saw days of civil unrest after the Sept. 20 police shooting of Keith Lamont Scott." The political and monetary rewards from the Charlotte riots will flow down like water for years. Destroying police cruisers and terrorizing motorists is a lot more fun than lobbying your city council, and it pays better, too.

Despite the shrill voices of Soros, Merkel, and their leftist flying monkeys screaming that resistance to globalism is futile, patriotism has come roaring back in Europe:
As Europeans assess the fallout from the U.K.’s Brexit referendum, they face a series of elections that could equally shake the political establishment. In the coming 12 months, four of Europe’s five largest economies have votes that will almost certainly mean serious gains for right-wing populists and nationalists. Once seen as fringe groups, France’s National Front, Italy’s Five Star Movement, and the Freedom Party in the Netherlands have attracted legions of followers by tapping discontent over immigration, terrorism, and feeble economic performance. “The Netherlands should again become a country of and for the Dutch people,” says Evert Davelaar, a Freedom Party backer who says immigrants don’t share “Western and Christian values.” Even Europe’s most powerful politician, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, is under assault. The anti-immigrant Alternative for Germany (AfD) party has drained support from Mrs Merkel’s Christian Democrats in recent state and local elections, capitalizing on discontent over Germany’s refugee crisis.Now if only we can find a sane and sober spokesman for nationalism here.

The joints and trusses propping up the DC Empire are groaning and straining under their unbearable weight. The Empire's satrapy in the Philippines is vigorously reasserting its independence from its former colonial master:
Sometimes Americans think we have won a war, only to realize years or decades later that our victory was incomplete. Now we are facing an eruption of anger over a war we waged more than a century ago. Rarely has blowback from an overseas intervention come back to haunt us so long after the shooting stopped. This unexpected challenge has emerged from the Philippines. The new president, Rodrigo Duterte, recently announced plans to pull his country out of America’s orbit and adopt an “independent” foreign policy. “I am anti-West,” he explained. “I do not like the Americans. It’s simply a matter of principle for me.” Duterte’s grievance is rooted in history. Americans, he asserted, unjustly seized the Philippines in 1899, waged a horrific military campaign to suppress native resistance, and “have not even apologized to the Filipino nation.” He waved photographs showing bodies of Filipinos killed in that war. Soon after Duterte made that startling speech, his foreign minister, Perfecto Yasay, went even further. In 1899, Yasay asserted, the United States “arrogated our victory in the struggle for freedom” and then used “invisible chains” to bind Filipinos into “shackling dependency.” Americans, he said, treat Filipinos as “little brown brothers not capable of true independence or freedom.” To escape from that humiliation, he concluded, the Philippines must end its “subservience to United States interests.”All the Yankees did in 1899 was to slaughter some 300,000 civilians resisting foreign domination, depriving them of self-determination. Some people really know how to carry a grudge. Speaking of old sins and wars thought to have been won, there's also the little matter of DC's immoral and brutal invasion of the Southern States, an act of naked aggression and exploitation that took the lives of hundreds of thousands, maimed thousands more, and plunged millions into poverty. I'm reminded of an observation by Jefferson Davis: "A question settled by violence, or in disregard of law, must remain unsettled forever." Or, as in the case of the Philippines, resettled later.

Over at the Abbeville Review, Ryan Walters lays out the central question of American politics:
What is true conservatism? That question, more than anything else, is the argument raging in the Republican Party today – one side fully represented in the party’s establishment wing, while the other resides in the hearts of true patriots at the grassroots, those who carry the American Revolution’s sacred fire of liberty. Yet most true conservatives may not realize that their closely held philosophy of limited government originated in the South. It is a Southern institution, and conservatives outside the South are espousing Southern values, whether they know it or not.The answer, of course, is critical, because how we define ourselves will determine our future, if any. Is this country a proposition nation that should welcome all who make their way in? Is diversity our greatest strength? Or is this country the product of the Western peoples who founded it? I highly recommend Walters' article.

How much do leftists hate traditional America? This much:
Top Hillary Clinton aides were upset a Muslim man was publicly named as the shooter in a 2015 massacre that left 14 people dead, and a longtime Clinton confidant even expressed regret that the terrorist wasn’t a white man, according to purported emails released by WikiLeaks on Sunday. The emails were part of a trove of messages stolen from the gmail account of Clinton campaign chair John Podesta, who has had a long association with the Democratic presidential nominee and her husband, former President Bill Clinton. The email chain began on Dec. 2, when digital operative Matt Ortega forwarded a tweet from MSNBC host Christopher Hayes that named one of the shooters in the San Bernardino, Calif., attack as Sayeed Farook. Consultant Karen Finney forwarded the email to Podesta, commenting, “Damn.” Podesta responded: “Better if a guy named Sayeed Farouk [sic] was reporting that a guy named Christopher Hayes was the shooter.”Damn if these people aren't pushing me to support the Republican ticket.
Traditional, White-bread America was soooo boring. Looks like we're being successfully transformed (mutated?) into Columbia. Or Zimbabwe. Or even Mexico. The orderly, well-mannered political contests of the past are no more. This attack on Republican Headquarters in Orange County, North Carolina illustrates how much we've changed:
Hillsborough police are investigating an apparent firebombing of the Orange County Republican headquarter, an incident that one state GOP official called an act of “political terrorism.” Police say the incident occurred when a bottle of flammable liquid was thrown through the front window of the office on Ja-Max Dr. “The office itself is a total loss,” said Dallas Woodhouse, executive director of state GOP. “The only thing important to us is that nobody was killed, and they very well could have been.” Police said the words, “Nazi Republicans get out of town or else” were spray painted on the side of an adjacent building.Hmmm. Sounds like something the Antifa would do. It'll be interesting to see what this investigation turns up.

What drives Islamic terrorists to attack Americans? It isn't because they "hate our freedoms," or other such self-boosting nonsense, but the simple fact that they still identify as Muslim, and intend to strike back at those who're killing and maiming Muslims in the Middle East. From the Intercept:
A secret FBI study found that anger over U.S. military operations abroad was the most commonly cited motivation for individuals involved in cases of “homegrown” terrorism. The report also identified no coherent pattern to “radicalization,” concluding that it remained near impossible to predict future violent acts. The study, reviewed by The Intercept, was conducted in 2012 by a unit in the FBI’s counterterrorism division and surveyed intelligence analysts and FBI special agents across the United States who were responsible for nearly 200 cases, both open and closed, involving “homegrown violent extremists.” The survey responses reinforced the FBI’s conclusion that such individuals “frequently believe the U.S. military is committing atrocities in Muslim countries, thereby justifying their violent aspirations.”When will we learn that DC's core policy of "Invade the World/Invite the World" is a recipe for national suicide?
The American Cultural Revolution continues. From the Guardian:
Hundreds of activists gathered at the American Museum of Natural History on Monday to take down the “racist” statue of Theodore Roosevelt and an urgent call to rename Columbus Day. More than 200 people cheered outside the museum as activists covered the statue of Roosevelt on horseback flanked by an African American and Native American on either side and demanded it be ultimately removed. “A stark embodiment of the white supremacy that Roosevelt himself espoused and promoted,” the group explained in a statement. “The statue is seen as an affront to all who pass it on entering the museum, but especially to African and Native Americans.”Just think -- we were promised that if we'd only take down the Confederate flag and Southern memorials, minorities would be happy. Now we see the crusade is against American identity.

Here's a good working distinction between the two: The immigrant wants to leave his old identity behind and become part of his adopted country. In other words, he intends to assimilate into the traditional culture. The invader, on the other hand, is conquering new territory, and intends on imposing HIS native culture on the target population. And language is a major component of culture, as the people of California are realizing as they see their land being transformed into Mexifornia:
When Palo Alto software entrepreneur Ron Unz led a campaign to ban bilingual education 18 years ago, California erupted in an acrimonious debate that drew national attention, with proponents expressing fears about the decline of English and opponents charging racism and predicting an educational Armageddon. But today, in a sign of the Golden State’s dramatically changing demographics and politics, the campaign to roll back the “English-only” Proposition 227 seems low-key and uncontroversial, overshadowed by a bevy of hot-button ballot initiatives and the emotionally charged presidential race.That's why places such as Santa Ana, California, are losing their White population: They're being driven out by Mexican invaders. As Mario Obledo of the La Raza Lawyers of California observed a few years ago, "We’re going to take over all the political institutions of California. In five years the Hispanics are going to be the majority population of this state….[Whites] ought to go back to Europe. We are practicing ‘La Reconquista’ in California." And they're doing it pretty damn well, I might add.
The Islamization of the West seems to be hitting a few speed bumps. Check out the following headlines, and you'll see how incompatible Western and Muslim cultures are proving to be: Wheelchair-bound woman is gang-raped by six migrants at Swedish asylum centre Majority of Paris attackers used migration routes to enter Europe French towns protest plan to relocate Calais migrants German police capture Syrian terror suspect after manhunt The last two stories reveal growing grass roots resistance to Islamification. Problem is, the people have to fight both the invaders and their governments.

New York Times outlines his strategy of how the Democrats can not only secure the White House, but, as the title of the article suggests, ensure its continued hold on power. Notice that Phillips' plan does not call for the Democrats to persuade a majority of voters with the logic of their ideas (hear that, libertarians?), but to make a blunt appeal to minorities to seize and consolidate political power. After approvingly noting the transformation of the US from a White majority to a minority-majority country, he declares it's time to speed up the demographic trend:
Lisa García Bedolla, a professor at the University of California, Berkeley, and the author of “Latino Politics,” has developed a concept called the “civic web” that is a synthesis of the old-fashioned precinct captain model, modern-day social networks and culturally specific community organizing. Paid staff members, neighborhood team leaders and block captains are part of a seamless network where the employees recruit and supervise volunteers — especially mothers, who are critical to building good voting habits in their families and communities. The civic web leverages face-to-face social networks and emphasizes long-term relationship building. In a battleground state such as Nevada — which Mr. Obama won by about 66,000 votes — Ms. García Bedolla estimates, the civic web model could, by 2020, mobilize more than 100,000 additional Latino voters at a cost of $3.1 million. The Clinton campaign and its allied super PACs spent $2.5 million on Nevada television ads in June alone. Making smart investments in mobilization can tip the election in longtime battleground states like Nevada, Florida and Ohio as well as emerging battlegrounds like North Carolina, Arizona and Georgia. In 2016, there’s still time to redirect resources to what we know works: mobilizing voters of color.Strange, isn't it, how the Times and all the other mouthpieces of the Deep State deny the reality of race -- except when it comes to expanding the Deep State's power. Yes, strange.

Tired of the leftist slant from every Wikipedia article? Encyclopedias are supposed to be objective, not partisan. Well, there's an alternative: Info Galactic:
Info Galactic is written collaboratively by volunteers who contribute and edit without compensation. Anyone with Internet access can create and make changes to Infogalactic articles, except in limited cases where editing is restricted to prevent disruption or vandalism. Users can contribute anonymously, under a pseudonym, or with their real identity. The foundational principles by which Infogalactic operates are very different from the Five Pillars of Wikipedia. These principles are known as the Seven Canons of Infogalactic. Infogalactic does not share the highly centralized structure of Wikipedia or the ideological dogma of the Wikimedia Foundation. The primary requirements are for the information contributed to be true, relevant, and verifiable, rather than cited from a so-called “published reliable source”, since experience has proven how reliance upon the latter can be easily gamed by editors and administators alike. There is no culture of notability, ideology, or deletionism at Infogalactic. The addition of perspective filters and two levels of Context and Opinion to every page means that the average editor's contribution is much less likely to be deleted for political reasons or fall victim to the edit wars over controversial pages. Infogalactic is designed around the idea that the user should be permitted to decide what information is relevant to him, not 500 ideologically-driven thought police.

Remember how the Neocons' invasion of Iraq was going to launch an unstoppable wave of democracy through the Middle East? Here's how that wave is doing in Morocco:
Early turnout had been low in Rabat with many people waiting till after the weekly noon prayers to cast their ballots (AFP Photo/Fadel Senna) The Islamist party which has headed Morocco's coalition government since Arab Spring-inspired protests five years ago has beaten liberal rivals in parliamentary elections, results showed Saturday. Prime Minister Abdelilah Benkirane's Islamist Justice and Development Party (PJD) took 125 seats out of 395, the interior ministry said after all ballots were counted.Lesson learned: To create and sustain Western-style political institutions, you have to have a Western population. The corollary is that as the proportion of a Western population declines in a country in relation to Third-World invaders, that country's ability to continue its political traditions also declines.
So now there's a video of Donald Trump in which he brags about his sexual conquests. This was inevitable. The man has a major case of verbal diarrhea. Combine that with a hair-trigger sensitive ego, and you have -- Donald Trump. Check out the size of the resulting uproar over at memeorandum:
Donald Trump bragged in vulgar terms about kissing, groping and trying to have sex with women during a 2005 conversation caught on a hot microphone — saying that “when you're a star, they let you do it” — according to a video obtained by The Washington Post.In the DC empire, the role of president is to misdirect our attention from the Deep State's actual goals. Same goes for candidates. Trump has always been a Judas goat whose job was to lead the vanishing White majority into the trap of backing what would eventually be revealed as a repulsive leader. Trump's crusade will be a major setback for conservatism and border integrity. As planned.

The 21st century is shaping up as the graveyard of the Hegelian superstate. Catalonia just announced it will hold an independence referendum:
One of Spain's richest regions, Catalonia has repeatedly fought Madrid over its right to secede. Regional president Puigdemont has vowed to proceed with the referendum even without Spain's blessing. Catalonia's parliament approved an independence referendum vote on Thursday in spite of tensions with Madrid, which has argued that the prosperous region has no legal ground for full autonomy. The referendum it set to take place next September.The Spanish prime minister, Mariano Rajoy, doesn't like this one bit. Catalonians should tell him to go jump. The right of self-determination is a basic human right, one that does not depend on the permission of ANY outside party. Can you imagine the Founding Fathers getting on their knees before George III crying, "May I?" Instead, they created and signed the Declaration of Independence, which affirms the inalienable right of self-government. So good for Catalonia!

Remember this horrific attack on a White victim during the Charlotte riots? Well, here's the rest of the story:
A 24-year-old Charlotte financial services worker has come forward as the man who was beaten, kicked and stripped of his pants last week by a group of 10 attackers during Charlotte’s violent uptown protests Sept. 21. ... Mitchell Barnes says he suffered a broken jaw in the attack, which he said occurred about 10:15 p.m. in the EpiCentre garage at 210 E. Trade Street. Mitchell Barnes told the Observer Friday that he lives in uptown and came out Tuesday night to watch the marchers and show support for their cause.How about that? Barnes thought the Black rioters would immediately sense his noble intentions and give him a free pass. Wrong! Lesson learned: Don't give your support to rioters, looters, and vandals. It might boomerang back on you.
Thanks to DC's policies, we're quickly approaching a state of perpetual war -- no, I'm not talking about the Middle East, but the low-level war being waged here at home thanks to Hispanic gangs in Long Island:
Four dead teenagers. Two weeks. One town. And a ruthless gang, the authorities say, was most likely responsible for the toll. Again. On Sept. 13, Nisa Mickens, 15, and her best friend, Kayla Cuevas, 16, were murdered, their battered bodies found near an elementary school here. A week later and just two miles away, the skeletal remains of two more teenagers — identified as Oscar Acosta, 19, and Miguel Garcia-Moran, 15 — were found in the woods near a psychiatric hospital. Oscar had been missing since May, Miguel since February. Their deaths have been ruled homicides. Brentwood, a hardscrabble town of nearly 60,000 on Long Island, 40 miles east of Manhattan, has reached another crisis point. For nearly two decades, MS-13, a gang with roots in Los Angeles and El Salvador, has been terrorizing the town, the authorities say, especially its young people. Since 2009, its members have been accused of at least 14 murders, court and police records show.Military analyst William Lind has warned that battles between sovereign states are a thing of the past; the unfolding 21st century promises a sprawling landscape pocked with battle scars from bloody clashes between non-state actors. Ethnic gangs will grow as loyalties to a unified nation vanish in tandem with the spread of diversity. Count on it.

this Vice article is all about, the growing chasm between the people and the ruling elite:
Voters are angry at the political establishment and the political establishment doesn't much care for the voters either. In fact, they think voters are pretty damn stupid. That's the conclusion of a new survey of America's unelected governing elites by political scientists at Johns Hopkins University. While media outlets endlessly poll and probe the American people to understand why they feel so disenchanted with their government, Professor Benjamin Ginsberg and Senior Lecturer Jennifer Bachner instead looked at America's political ruling class for answers. The federal bureaucrats, think tank leaders, and congressional staff members they surveyed, Ginsberg said in an interview with VICE News, "have no idea what Americans think and they don't care. They think Americans are stupid and should do what they are told."This is why such an unlikely candidate as Donald Trump can rally millions. As the regime teeters toward collapse, expect to see more movements like his. Tick, tock...

Short answer: because the FBI is an arm of the central government, and must conform to the regime's official narrative. But now that the transcripts from Omar Mateen's lengthy conversation with 911, his motives couldn't be clearer:
When the FBI released its heavily redacted snippet of a transcript from Mateen’s 911 call in June, the agency faced widespread outrage for excluding Mateen’s pledge of allegiance to the Islamic State. Following the outcry, the FBI and the Department of Justice claimed the omission was intended to avoid providing a “publicity platform” to would-be terrorists. ... Early in Mateen’s second phone call of the evening, this time with a police negotiator, he made his reasoning clear: “Can you tell me where you are right now so I can you get some help?” the negotiator asks Mateen. “No,” Mateen replies. ‘Because you have to tell America to stop bombing Syria and Iraq. They are killing a lot of innocent people. What am I to do here when my people are getting killed over there. You get what I’m saying?”Once again, the root cause of Islamic attacks on the US is DC's insane policy of perpetual war. Those who claimed Mateen killed in reaction to conservatism, masculinity, or Christianity, or, as one bloated bloviator put it, because he caught the anti-LGBT virus from living in the South, are blinded by ideology and hate.
