Darkness in the City of Light

1030073320

The grim counts continue this morning from the ghastly bloodbath in Paris yesterday.  More than 120 killed, and likely more than 200 wounded, about 80 seriously, as reported by multiple sources.  An attack perpetrated by members of the Religion of Peace once again.  A carefully coordinated effort, with killings in at least seven places.  It has been reported that a Syrian passport has been found on the body of one of the terrorists.

While driving north last evening, I was listening to the reports regarding the attacks from CBS News on WBZ radio, and heard our President’s embarrassingly inane remarks.  He talked about the “outrageous attempts to terrorize innocent civilians”, and “terrorize the people of France”, and “universal values”.  Not once did Barack Hussein Obama say the words “ISIS” or “Islam”.  Even though he knew both of those words should have been in every sentence spoken.

Yesterday, President Hollande in France immediately declared a national State of Emergency, and closed the French borders.  But it is too late.  The subway attacks, the massacre in Toulouse, and the Charlie Hebdo shootings have already happened, yet after each, more muslim terrorists were allowed into France.  The socialist Left of Europe, and its imbecilic genuflecting at the altar of “multi-culturalism”, has let the wolves into the herd of sheep.

What happened in France will happen here.  It already has, actually, and continues to.  Fort Hood.  Chattanooga, Austin TX.  Boston. The perpetrator of the stabbings last week at UC-Merced, Faisal Muhammed, left a manifesto of muslim extremism that included desires to behead victims, and praise to Allah.  (Another “unclear motive”, courtesy of our Federal law enforcement friends!)

Some things we don’t know yet about the tragedy in Paris, but will very likely eventually find out:

  • The number of terrorists directly involved in the Paris attacks will be well under 30.
  • A number of them will be recent arrivals from the Middle East, active and trained agents of terrorism from ISIS (and possibly Al Qaeda) sent as “refugees” for the purposes of carrying out such attacks.
  • The terrorists planned and prepared for these attacks in near-complete security nestled inside heavily muslim neighborhoods across France, if not in and around Paris itself.
  • The terrorists used communications methods that defied electronic and visual surveillance, and carried out what can only be described as professional reconnaissance of their targets, likely in plain sight, over a period of months.
  • French security forces were prevented at some junctures from investigating or acting against one or more of the terrorists by politically correct rules in place to keep from offending the muslims.
  • None of the victims were armed, because of France’s extremely strict gun laws.  Yet, the terrorists had easy access to fully-automatic AK-47s, ammunition, and explosives.  The entirety of France is a “gun-free zone”, and the results were predictable.

Military-age muslim men continue to overrun Europe with the stated intent of the destruction of Western civilization.  They have no intention of assimilation, only conquest and conversion.  The memes of the liberal global media, that these are “refugees”, helpless women and children, continue to be perpetuated to an ignorant and brainwashed populace.   Our President has been vocal and active to allow them here, as well.  He wants 10,000 Syrian “refugees” allowed into our country.  The first have already arrived on US soil.

Here’s an idea.  That first load, which consists of almost exclusively military-age males, should be kept in a holding camp near New Orleans.  Michelle Obama, Sasha, and Malia should be made to stay with them inside the camp, sans any Secret Service protection.  Because if he is unwilling to risk their lives and safety with these filthy animals, why should he be willing to risk ours?

He won’t risk them, of course.  He will only risk us.  His hackneyed fabrication that there is no one religion responsible for terrorism tells us all we need to know about Barack Hussein Obama.  France and islam are mortal enemies in a war for the soul of the West.  Despite his pathetic platitudes about “universal values” and, now, standing with France, Barack Obama stands with islam.  He has told us so, with his words, and with every action he has taken in his time in office.  American and islam are also mortal enemies in the war for the soul of the West.

Paris, the City of Light, is dark tonight.  In time, it will be an American city that will be shrouded in blood and tears, and darkness.   Perpetrated by the people whom our President stands with.  The same President who called ISIS the “junior varsity”, and as recently as yesterday, told us ISIS was “contained”.  This is the same President who wants us forcibly disarmed, for our own safety.

I Was Wrong About NBC News, I Admit It

I didn’t think NBC News could be any more ignorant or more obtuse.  But, I was wrong.  Apparently, I misunderestimated the ingenuity of fools (with access to the news room).  What is the on-line feature article from NBC.com this morning?

israel arms

Israel announced a relaxation of the nation’s gun laws on Wednesday, widening civilian access to weapons permits. Teachers in Jerusalem’s Jewish orthodox community, for example, could be eligible for a special permit to possess a weapon under the new rules.

Some concerned civilians visited the Mitvach Adumim gun range in Ma’ale Adumim — a Jewish settlement outside Jerusalem — where manager Gabi Efrat-Begin said business was “very good.”

Their unintended irony cup runneth over.  Their cup of stupidity, too.  There is so much of both there, it is difficult to know where to begin.  I spose I will start with the irony.  Israelis believe in the right to self-protection, always have.  So the image, and the video that accompanies it, shows Israelis practicing at a pistol range, with privately owned handguns.  NBC News has been a virtual mouthpiece for the gun-grabbing far-Left in this country, featuring time and again articles calling for restriction of private firearms ownership, repeal of the Second Amendment, and the drumbeat propaganda of Obama and his cronies that guns somehow don’t make us safer.  (While surrounded by taxpayer-funded armed security, of course.)  Yet, how are the Israelis countering the threats to themselves and their families/communities?  By making sure they are armed, and proficient with those arms.   Even to the point of arming teachers to defend themselves and students in the classroom.  Hmmmm.

The notion, spelled out in the headline, that Israel is suffering a “string of lone wolf stabbings” is even more senseless than usual.  String of lone wolf stabbings?  As if they are not somehow connected?  That would be like calling 9/11 a “string of lone wolf hijackings”.   Or a informing us that a man yelling “Allahu Akbar!” while shooting 45 people at Fort Hood somehow had “unclear motives”.   (Yes, it was the FBI that gave us that gem, but NBC and CNN parroted such nonsense unquestioningly.)  The efforts by the mainstream media to assiduously avoid actually labeling Islamist terrorism as either terrorism or Islamist, leads to such stupidity.  And again, it reflects the lock-step “religion of peace” fable we are fed by the White House and fellow travelers after each and every ghastly incident.

The irony, unintended as it may be, won’t pass unnoticed.  Nor will the stupidity.  Except, possibly, by NBC News.

 Oh, and Happy Birthday to MissileChick!

The Oregon Shooter, Lies and Omissions

harper

We finally have the name of the murderer in Oregon.  Media outlets have assiduously avoided revealing his race in any of the two dozen articles I have read, but in this internet age, the name almost always comes with a picture.  Chris Harper Mercer, 26, was a mixed-race man who loaded up with weapons and went into a Community College  classroom in Oregon with the intent to kill.  If Barack Obama had a son, he would look a lot more like Chris Harper Mercer than he would Trayvon Martin.  Unlike his sickeningly racist moralizing on that occasion, Obama managed to leave that detail out of his demand for further measures to disarm the law-abiding, with some false promise that draconian gun laws stop criminals from obtaining and using guns.

According to multiple sources, (WSJ and NY Post). Mercer then proceeded to ask his hostages what religion they were.  Those who replied “Christian” were shot in the head.  It is highly likely that those details were known to Barack Obama before his gun-grabbing harangue this evening shortly after 1820 EDT.  He managed to leave that out, too.  Had the reports been that the shooter had singled out gays, I am quite certain that Obama would have opened with that tidbit.

MINUTES after the 2012 shooting in the theater in Aurora, Colorado, suspect James Holmes was incorrectly identified on national broadcasts as a white male, with right-wing Tea Party affiliations.  All of it was untrue.  Within the hour the suspect in the Giffords shooting was identified as a white male Veteran.  Again, untrue.  Loughner was, in fact, a man with Communist and anarchist affiliations.  Here?  A bi-racial man who singled out Christians is not identified to the public for several hours.

Despite his identifying and killing Christians, echoing a number of massacres in Nigeria and other places perpetrated by Muslims, we have no word as to Mercer’s political or religious affiliations, if any.  I have a difficult time believing at this late hour that such affiliations aren’t known.  While the statement that no motive has been established may be true this evening, we should recall such a statement about unclear motives was made MONTHS after radical Muslim Army Major Nidal Hasan killed thirteen soldiers and civilians while shouting “Allahu Akbar!” in the 2009 Fort Hood Massacre.  Remember also, the incident was categorized by the Obama Administration as “workplace violence”.   Whether Harper killed in the name of another religion or killed in the name of the all-too pervasive and despairing Godlessness, it is he, and not the guns, certainly not MY guns, that is responsible.  But given the absolute dishonesty of both the media and this Administration, any inconvenient facts will be hard to come by until they have been able to disseminate their malignant version of events.

This evening, Barack Obama categorized our Second Amendment rights, the founders’ intent for the last redress of the People against the tyranny of government, as a “gun culture that made no sense”.  This from an Administration whose Justice Department ran hundreds of guns to drug cartels in Mexico resulting in the death of hundreds of Mexican citizens and at least one US Border patrol agent, and whose apparatus of State has gone about arming thousands who vow our destruction in some hopelessly foolish scheme to overthrow Russia’s ally in Syria.

Before the families can even begin to grieve for their loss, Barack Obama used the horrible tragedy to further his leftist agenda to eliminate the ability of We the People to resist a government that has become maliciously destructive of our liberty.  His promises to the fearful that such incidents as this, particularly if what I strongly suspect is what transpired, can be “stopped” by infringing on the rights of the innocent, are lies.  They are but a Faustian bargain that would transform us (!) into subjects rather than citizens.  Nothing short.  Worse, not a word, not a thought, not a flicker of recognition from Barack Obama for  the courage of those who stood and proclaimed their faith in the very face of death.  They were martyred, on American soil, for their beliefs.

When We the People cannot resist because we have allowed our liberties and our right to bear arms erode out of fear engendered by such a charlatan as this, we will see what is really in store for us.  Me, I will keep my last redress against the tyranny of the Barack Obamas and Hillary Clintons.  Or die trying.  Because I will not live defenseless under the tyranny of such a man as the shameful snake-oil salesman who this evening took to the airwaves to spew his lies and half-truths to once again convince us to trade our liberty for safety.

The Oregon Tragedy

Someone, identified only as a 20-year old male, brought a gun into a gun-free zone, walked into an Umpqua Community College classroom full of students, and ordered everyone to state their religion.  He them began shooting them, presumably based on the responses to which religion each person was.  Up to fifteen people are reported dead, twenty wounded.  Pray for them, the wounded and the souls of those killed, and for their loved ones.

I doubt severely whether the suspect, reportedly dead, was a white male.  Had he been, we would have heard about the “white male” shooter in short order.  The shooter’s name, undoubtedly known already, is also being withheld.  Other speculation I will not make, as too much is unknown.  Pray also for our Republic, that it can survive the corrosive sham of the Obama Administration, whose spokesman proceeded to push for the curtailment of the Constitutional liberties of a free people before a single shred of information about the shooter or the motive or the weapon was known publicly.  He and his ilk are beneath contempt.

Elizabeth II Eclipses Victoria’s Reign – Long Live the Queen!

Princess Elizabeth, now Queen Elizabeth II

coronation

queen-elizabeth

As of just after noon today (EDT), Queen Elizabeth II became the longest-reigning monarch in the history of Great Britain.  Sixty-three years, three months, and seven days.  Her coronation took place on 2 June 1952, in Westminster Abbey.  Her coronation was the first to be televised, and indeed has been the only coronation to have taken place there since the advent of the mass medium of television.  (The brilliant Richard Dimbleby narrated.)

When she ascended to the throne, Elizabeth was just 26 years old.  Britain’s Prime Minister was none other than Sir Winston Churchill, who had first served Elizabeth’s great-great grandmother, Victoria, who’d been born a year before the death of King George III.  America’s President was Harry Truman, eleven administrations ago.  Joseph Stalin still ruled the Soviet bloc with an iron fist.

Despite family issues that must have made her cringe, Elizabeth has been a model of dignity and decorum, with the formidable Prince Phillip by her side.  Her grandsons, William and Harry, have restored some hope that the lustre of the British Monarchy will remain intact when she is gone.

Princess Elizabeth’s pretty, smiling face was an inspiration to many during the worst of the Blitz, and in the long years of war, where she did real work serving in the Women’s Auxiliary Territorial Service from 1942 until the end of the war.  She has been described as absolutely genuine, with a formidable intellect and a forceful personality when required.  She has seen the dissolution of the British Empire, and the reduction of a once-great nation into a bit player in world affairs. The snubs inflicted by the current occupant of the White House must be particularly sad to her, as she lived through some of the most trying times England has faced in centuries, in which the “special relationship” with her former colonies has proven most valuable.  Despite it, she has always kept her composure, her dignity, and her regal demeanor.

A recent poll showed that Elizabeth II is considered England’s greatest monarch, and her most popular.    I hope she has many more days in her reign.  Long live Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II!

The REAL Minimum Wage is $0

mcdonalds

From bizpacreview.com:

McDonald’s has unveiled its plan to use touch-screen technology in self-service kiosks where customers can order and pay for their food.

According to a Business Insider report last month, McDonald’s franchisees see the minimum wage issue as “a major threat to the survival of the operator community,” and are encouraging the company to put “every resource available” into reducing labor costs through technologies such as kiosks and automatic fry dispensers.

How dare those greedy bastards who run businesses try and stay solvent!  That isn’t the Sovie… er, American way!  Now, if we could only replace Bernie Sanders with a kiosk that spits out class warfare nonsense and hackneyed COMINTERN-style propaganda against capitalism.  We’d save $174k for sure.

Love Steve Berman’s line:  “Liberals never learn.”  Of course they don’t.  They KNOW everything.  Ronald Reagan’s cogent observation nothwithstanding.

Another Mandatory Navy Training Opportunity?

Screen-Shot-2015-08-28-at-1.26.34-PM

In the form of “healthy masculinities”.  Taught by the Vanderbilt University Women’s Center, naturally.

One has to wonder how many times Ray Mabus and RDML Micro-Aggression USCG sat through this training.  One too many, it would seem.

Can one presume that crying, not having sex or playing sports, majoring in Women’s Studies, and acting like a p*ssy is “healthy masculinity”?

And you have to love the dropping of the veil with the word “policing”.   Sort of an East German STASI ring to it, don’tcha think?  Because it is all about controlling others.

Woe betide our society when the ideal male is Pajama Boy, and the ideal female is Rosie O’Donnell.
