Ice Cream for Uncle June

Some American conservatives still believe that if only the Republican Party can be rescued from the RINOs, it can once again become a party that embraces conservative principles and provide a welcoming home for Christians, libertarians, and fiscal conservatives alike.

We’re well-positioned to take back the House next year! If only Ted Cruz can borrow enough money from Goldman Sachs, he can sweep the primaries and revive the Republican Party in 2024! We need to twist the knob on our Magic Decoder Ring and make the Dominion voting machines stop taking orders from the DNC!

Yup. Uh-huh. Been there, done that.

We have a UniParty now in the USA. One wing of that party pretends to be conservative so that it can siphon off the anger and discontent from the deplorables and keep it from triggering open rebellion. Decades of open borders, abortion on demand, and an ever-expanding federal government have made that abundantly clear. Nevertheless, some conservatives haven’t yet woken up to this ineluctable fact. And — if four years of Donald Trump didn’t make the light bulbs come on over their heads — maybe they never will.

A few years ago a young man at my (now defunct) church asked me about my politics. He wasn’t woke or anything, just a standard-issue liberal. I told him I was a right-wing extremist. He shook his head at me in mild reproof and said, “No you aren’t, Ned!” I said: “You have no idea.”

A couple of months later in another political conversation he referred to me as a Republican. I interrupted him, and said vehemently: “I’m not a Republican. I HATE Republicans! The only thing worse than a Republican is a Democrat!”

That’s a handy comeback. I’ve used it a number of times when the occasion warrants. It tends to baffle standard-issue liberals; they don’t know how to respond.

*   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *

I bring all this up because of all the conservative attention that is currently being lavished on Uncle Joe, our beloved ice-cream-eating Puppet-in-Chief.

Conservatives love to make fun of Joe Biden. They create innumerable memes, cartoons, jokes, and disparaging references to his obvious senility, his love for ice cream, his penchant for sniffing children’s hair, and the ludicrous bafflegab that issues from his mouth every time he stands in front of a microphone without a script — and sometimes even when he has one.

I must admit that I’m not above enjoying a joke at the expense of our puppet president, and every now and then I might even make one. But I don’t spend more than five minutes a day on such foolishness — there are more important things to pay attention to. Droolin’ Joe and his pretend second-in-command Kamala “Skippy” Harris have been set up as a foil to draw conservative attention and ridicule while the real business of the UniParty gets transacted behind the scrim.

A while back I posted this meme:

It doesn’t mean that Joe Biden is doing the breaking of America, but rather that the demented puppet is part of the deliberate breaking of America, propped up in position to do exactly what he’s doing: rending what little remains of the national fabric. All the crises and gaffes and ostensible policy mistakes are planned and fully intended. The fiasco in Afghanistan, the chaos at the border, the heavy-handed totalitarian measures on the coronavirus and vaccination, the massive unprecedented inflation — all of these are intended to further the fractionation of America into a myriad disparate components that will be easier to control once the Great Reset kicks off in earnest.

And while all that is going on, conservatives are preoccupying themselves with jokes at the expense of the Puppet. Who, I might add, was propped up on the national dais for exactly that purpose.

Early this morning news outlets were informed that there was an active shooter event with multiple casualties at Fort Meade in Maryland. Later in the day the public affairs office at Fort Meade amended the story, saying that the incident was in fact a pre-planned drill. Coincidentally, Fort Meade happens to host the headquarters of the National Security Agency (NSA).

In other news, a huge police presence in Melbourne seems to have dampened any major demonstrations planned for the fourth day of protests against the vaccine mandate.

Didn’t feel comfortable in Italy! Evacuated Afghans move on to Germany

Afghans who had previously been evacuated by the USA to Poland, Italy and other EU countries have been arriving in Germany in recent weeks. That was to be expected; Germany offers an extremely attractive range of benefits and a good life at the expense of taxpayers. Mosques, shops, etc. are also in abundance and you feel at home. No wonder, GerMoney has the largest Afghan community in Europe, and it is growing every day until the land of the former thinkers and poets is actually in the Hindu Kush.

Even Italy, one of the most popular holiday destinations for Germans, cannot keep up, and that is less because of the sun, the delicious food, the delicious wines, the cheerful way of life, the beaches and the sea, it is more because of the marginal all-round service and the range of accommodations that do not exactly provide a feel-good factor.

Epoch Times:

In the past few weeks, the federal police found “70 Afghan nationals who have possible links to a previous evacuation by the US armed forces from Afghanistan to another EU member state,” the agency told the world. Among them, 32 people were believed to have previously been evacuated to Poland, 26 to Italy, seven to France and five to Spain.

In addition, Afghans who had been evacuated not by the US armed forces but by the armies of the EU partner countries have also been apprehended. For example, a family of five was found on a train at the German-Austrian border who had been flown out of Afghanistan by the Italian military. According to their own statement, they had applied for asylum there to the Federal Police, but “did not feel comfortable”. The family was then taken to a refugee facility.

At the beginning of September, Afghans living in Germany were also apprehended while allegedly trafficking compatriots. They accompanied ten people evacuated from Kabul to Italy in a bus to northern Germany. The evacuees had already applied for asylum in Italy. At the weekend there was a similar case, according to information from the “world” from security circles. Here a group of four Afghans who had been evacuated to Italy were picked up on a train to Hamburg and taken to a refugee home.

Afterword from the translator:

I don’t know about you, but to me this looks like a slow hostile takeover of Germany by Afghanistan. I wonder if the CCP is financing these “trips”?

“Stop This Experimentation on Humans”

Joachim Kuhs is a Member of the European Parliament for the AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany). In the following video recorded on the floor of the European Parliament, Mr. Kuhs pleads for the withdrawal of the experimental mRNA treatments being used on the general public in an attempt to stop the spread of the Wuhan Coronavirus. To support his case he cites the severe adverse affects of the “vaccine”.

Is it Your Girl, Mr. BoJo?

Is it Your Girl, Mr. BoJo?

by Michael Copeland

Is it your girl, Mr. BoJo, they enslaved and raped and raped,
Coldly marketing her sex for ready cash?
Is it your wife they demean with their insulting cries of “Whore!”,
And assure her that her pretty face they’d smash?
Is it your boy who was picked on all the time when at his school,
Who was threatened he’d be given broken bones?
Is it your car that they vandalise and seek to set on fire,
And your house they keep targeting with stones?
Is it your road where they park and double-park outside the house,
Or urinate in driveways and in yards?
Oh no, sorry. I forgot. It isn’t like that. Silly me!
At your place there’s a gate with well-armed guards.

Muslim Sends Doctor to the Hospital for Touching His Wife

Nizhnevartovsk is a city in Western Siberia. The following video shows what happened to a doctor in Nizhnevartovsk who dared to touch a Muslim man’s wife when he examined her.

Many thanks to our long-term commenter Elena for the reference, and to Vlad Tepes for uploading the video:

Below is Elena’s explanation of what happened at the clinic in Nizhnevartovsk:

In Nizhnevartovsk, a man beat a doctor for examining his Muslim wife

An unpleasant incident ended with another patient’s appointment with a dermatologist in Nizhnevartovsk. Her husband beat the doctor.

A woman in a hijab came to see a dermatologist. The doctor proceeded to his usual actions — examined the hands, legs and abdomen of the patient. Fifteen minutes later, a man burst into the doctor’s office. He almost immediately started beating the doctor.

The patient’s husband broke the doctor’s nose; the doctor had to call an ambulance. The police arrived at the scene.

The doctor himself was shocked by what happened. According to him, he had previously had to examine women in hijab, but this was the first time he encountered such a reaction from her husband. Now the law enforcement agencies will decide the issue of bringing the man who attacked the doctor to responsibility, established by the laws of the Russian Federation.

Voters Go Postal

As a follow-up to yesterday’s report on postal vote mischief in Lower Saxony, the article below talks about the role mail-in ballots will play in the upcoming elections all across Germany.

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this piece from PolitikStube:

A rogue, who thinks this stinks: Big cities record extremely high increases in postal votes

A record number of postal voters is expected in this year’s general election, and in some cities the number of postal votes has almost doubled.

The postal vote was actually intended as an exception for those people who, for age-related and health reasons for example, would not be able to cast their vote in person at the polling station, in order to enable the chance to participate. Until 2008, participation in the postal vote had to be credibly justified, after which this was no longer required.

In France, postal voting was abolished for fear of manipulation. In Germany, however, this is praised as a safe option and “of course” does not affect the election results. For Joe Biden, the postal ballots that suddenly appeared during the night were a stroke of luck and paved the way to the White House.

Postal voting has been made the rule in Germany, which increases voter turnout on the one hand and increases the likelihood of influencing it on the other hand, and can be useful for the desired election result.

Welt.de:

A significant increase in postal voters is expected in the federal election due to the Corona pandemic. A survey by Welt am Sonntag in ten major cities shows that this is significantly higher than expected.

So far, Frankfurt am Main has sent 160,500 postal ballot papers, almost twice as many as in the previous federal election in the same period.

Bremen also recorded a doubling to currently more than 130,000 postal voting slips. Düsseldorf also registered around 50 percent more applications (170,000) than in the last federal election.

So far, more than 463,000 postal voting documents have been requested in Munich (comparable period 2017: 285,286). Hamburg has so far sent 497,761 postal votes (comparable period 2017: 323,692). 850,373 ballot papers have already been issued in Berlin, around 290,000 more than at the same time as the last federal election.

A third day of protests in Melbourne saw thousands of people opposed to the vaccine mandate take to the streets. The protesters eventually ended up at the Shrine of Remembrance, Melbourne’s major war memorial, where police fired rubber bullets at them. The authorities issued a no-fly order in the area, preventing media helicopters from doing live broadcasts of the demonstrations. A fourth day of protests is now underway.

In other news, a spokesman for Black Lives Matter in New York City said that vaccine passports are being used to propagate racism.

People-Smugglers Love Luciana Lamorgese

Last week I reported on the reaction of Matteo Salvini to an incident in the Italian beach resort of Rimini where a Somali culture-enricher ran around stabbing people, including a young child.

In the following video Giorgia Meloni, the leader of the anti-immigration party Fratelli d’Italia (Brothers of Italy), makes some acerbic remarks on the same topic, and chastises Interior Minister Luciana Lamorgese for her other official actions as a member of Prime Minister Mario Draghi’s cabinet.

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Vax

Our Hungarian correspondent László alerted me to a report in Hungarian state media that Slovenia had mandated a “certificate of immunity” for people who work from home as well as those who travel to the workplace. I asked our Slovenian correspondent Andrej Turjaški whether the story was accurate, and here’s what he said:

It is true for some. The government wants people who work in core government jobs (army, police, ministries, government agencies) be vaccinated or have a certificate of immunity. It is not a general requirement. People working from home in the private sector or broader public service jobs can still do self-testing.

László went ahead and translated the Hungarian article, and sent his take on what he thinks the Hungarian state media are up to in their manipulation of the Slovenian news:

This article is as much about Hungary as it is about Slovenia — so it is more about the global propaganda factory than any specific country. Blikk is a tabloid, and the target group for the article is less-educated Hungarians. (Corona news is never news in the MSM; it is propaganda.)

So this article is a good example of regional-level Corona-propaganda machinery. The headline refers to Slovenia as ‘our neighbours’ to induce what I call the ‘near-comparison effect’ in its Hungarian audience. Also the lie by omission your fact-check has revealed serves to brainwash Hungarians by making them believe that the ‘immunity card’ is mandatory for everyone working from a home office in Slovenia, not only for government employees.

The point is to manipulate the Hungarians by making them feel that ‘their neighbours’ (whom they compare themselves to) are in deeper trouble than they are, and thus make them (the Hungarians) accept the ‘less strict’ Hungarian NOW oppression without rioting. In other words: the Powers That Be are slowly cooking the frog while feeding him ice cubes.

Thousands of workers protesting Victoria’s vaccine mandate took to the streets of Melbourne for a second day, clashing violently with police. As I write this, a third day of protests is underway. Police officials said that Nazis and right-wing extremists had infiltrated the protesting union members in order to instigate violence.

In other news, a state media outlet in China described George Soros as a “global economic terrorist”.

“Taking Advantage of This Unfortunate Situation Called the Covid Pandemic”

Ettore Gotti Tedeschi is an Italian economist and the former president of the Vatican Bank. In the following video Mr. Tedeschi discusses the opportunity provided by the COVID-19 pandemic to implement the Great Reset. I find it interesting that he describes the upcoming Great Reset as an attempt to rectify the mistakes made during the previous Great Reset some fifty years ago.
