Distant, Possibly Habitable Planet Spotted by Citizen Scientists

Citizen scientists unveiled a distant exoplanet that is believed to be roughly twice the size of Earth and located within its star’s habitable zone.

The exoplanet, named K2-288Bb, could either be a rocky world like Earth or a gas-rich planet like Neptune. Using data from NASA’s Kepler space telescope, the new world was found 226 light-years from Earth, in the constellation Taurus, according to a statement from NASA.

Even Kids as Young as Four Want to Punish Freeloaders

Younger children were much more negative towards freeloaders than older kids.

Nobody likes a freeloader. That’s something we grownups know, but where does this sense of fairness come from? A study by researchers at Yale University this year shows that even children as young as four will recognize freeloading and get angry and, if they can, punish the freeloaders.

Islam Enters Congress

The two newly elected Muslim darlings of the Democratic Party have more ego than intellect and more hatred for Israel than love for America.

On January 3, 2019, new members of Congress arrived at their Longworth House offices radiating a contagious excitement. Scores of political fans from Muslim districts in Michigan and Minnesota greeted each other in Arabic, smiling as if Uncle Sam were Santa Claus bringing gifts to greet the first female Palestinian and the first Somali members of the U.S. House of Representatives.

Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-Minn.) wore the Palestinian flag on election night and a Palestinian thobe to the House offices, clearly stating where her alliances lie. Then she announced her alarming position: a one-state solution creating a binational state of “Palestine.” According to the Anti-Defamation League, “a ‘one-state solution,’ is nothing less than an indirect attempt to bring about an end to the State of Israel as the national homeland of the Jewish people.”

NYC’s Bill De Blasio Vows to Wrest Wealth From ‘Wrong Hands’ And Redistribute

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio turned up the volume on his progressive rhetoric in his sixth State of the City address Thursday, pledging to redistribute money from the haves to the have nots with a series of new initiatives

De Blasio promised to make life better for workers, tenants, and retirees in the wide-ranging speech, promising to create a city-managed retirement fund for those who lack access to employer-sponsored funds, as well as a new Office to Protect Tenants. “Imagine a city where New Yorkers can live their lives more fully,” de Blasio told the audience at Symphony Space in Manhattan. “That’s the quality of life I want for every New Yorker.”

Later in his remarks, the second-term mayor said millions of Americans are “boxed into lives that just aren’t working” because of Republican policies like tax breaks for the wealthy and corporations. “Brothers and sisters, there’s plenty of money in the world,” de Blasio said. “Plenty of money in this city. It’s just in the wrong hands. You deserve a city that gives you the share of prosperity that you’ve earned.”

Saudi Monument to Allah Erected at the World Trade Center

A nine-foot sculpture has risen on the site of the World Trade Center terror attack of 9/11 in New York. It’s a Saudi Arabian ‘candy’ monument inscribed with the words, “There is no god but Allah, and Mohammed is the prophet.”

The Saudi monument is one of the statues representing the 20 nations — the G20 — that artist Laurence Jenkell thought appropriate for his ‘Candy of Nations’, according to the Observer. The Port Authority of New York also thought it an apt piece to put on this location. It celebrates Saudi Arabia’s place in the G20 Summit and was erected last week.

Trump Goes on Epic Tweetstorm After NYT Reveals FBI “Witch Hunt” Escalation Following Comey Firing

President Trump on Saturday lashed out after a Friday evening report in the New York Times that US law enforcement officials “became so concerned by the president’s behavior” in the days after Trump fired James Comey as FBI director, that “they began investigating whether he had been working on behalf of Russia against American interests.”

According to the NYT, agents and senior F.B.I. officials “had grown suspicious of Mr. Trump’s ties to Russia during the 2016 campaign” but held off on opening an investigation into him, the people said, in part because they were uncertain how to proceed with an inquiry of such sensitivity and magnitude.

What happened next? Well, a collusion narrative was born and carefully crafted as the paper explains.

US Investigating Boeing Satellite Sale to China-Backed Startup

The close relationship of Boeing (whose former employee Patrick Shanahan is now the acting Pentagon chief) with a Chinese government-backed satellite start up company has been the target of an SEC and Commerce Department investigation, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Global IP, based in Los Angeles, reportedly received a letter by the SEC requesting that the company retain all of its documents related to its work with Boeing as well as other entities, including China Orient Asset Management Company, a state owned Chinese lender. The letter says that the SEC believes that the company has “documents and data that are relevant to a matter under investigation”. The letter was disclosed in a court filing on January 4 by one of Global IP’s founders, Umar Javed. That filing was part of litigation against a group of defendants that includes a unit of China Orient.

China Orient was said to be providing financing to Global IP for the purchase of a satellite from Boeing. This is problematic because due to recent diplomatic… tensions shall we say, American companies are “effectively barred” from selling satellites to China.

BBC Backtracks After Asking if Muslim Teen Should be Killed

Poses question about girl who fled Islam

Amid outrage from listeners, a branch of the British Broadcasting Corp. has been forced to explain why it asked whether or not a teen who had abandoned Islam and fled her family in Saudi Arabia should be killed.

The question: “Eighteen-year-old Rahaf Mohammed al-Qunun fled Saudi Arabia as she said her family would kill her for choosing to leave Islam — do you respect her decision?”

The BBC Asian Network backtracked.

“We have deleted the tweet about our earlier discussion on Rahaf al-Qunun,” the BBC said. “The question we asked on air ‘How do you feel about the 18-year-old Saudi woman’s decision to leave her family and religion?’ was aimed at our listeners who had faced similar dilemmas in their own life regarding family and religion. We received several calls from people emphathising with Miss al-Qunun’s situation. We are sorry the original wording about ‘respecting her decision’ was open to misinterpretation.”

The British paper Metro reported the outrage over the question spread on the web.

The comments included, “You’re a waste of taxpayer’s money,”

EU Army ‘Already Taking Shape’ Brags German Defence Minister

“Germany and France are the driving forces in defence,” Ms von der Leyen boasted, adding that “We’re moving even further ahead with our close partner France” after the two countries agreed to sign a “new Elysèe Treaty” which, amongst other efforts to, in effect, merge aspects of the two countries, includes common defence.

France Hints at Money to ‘Yellow Vest’ Protestors From Italy

Minister asks whether ‘foreign powers’ are funding violence

(ANSA) — Paris, January 10 — The French Minister of State for Gender Equality Marlène Schiappa on Thursday said that she intends to look into whether “foreign powers” are involved in online fundraising to help violent protestors within the yellow vest movement, Italy first and foremost.

“Who is funding the violence,” she asked in an interview on France Inter, hinting that foreign powers including Italy were involved “given the position of certain Italian leaders”.

The reference was to recent comments made by both deputy prime ministers. Deputy Premier and Labour and Industry Minister Luigi Di Maio hit back on Tuesday after French European Affairs Minister Nathalie Loiseau told Italian officials to butt out after expressing support for the Yellow Vests protest movement. Di Maio said Monday that his 5-Star Movement (M5S) was ready to provide support to the Yellow Vests while fellow Deputy Premier, Interior Minister and League party leader Matteo Salvini also voiced his backing for the protests.

France’s Yellow Vest Boxer Sparks Controversy and Praise After Bashing Police

He admitted he “acted badly” after witnessing brutality against demonstrators.

Mr Dettinger claimed he, his wife and a friend were tear-gassed and became angry when he saw police using similar tactics against pensioners and “hurting people with flash balls (rubber bullets)”. Countless messages of support and even admiration, some hailing him as the protest movement’s own “Rambo”, have been posted on social media.

But one of the officers he injured said he felt as if the boxer intended “to cause real harm, even to kill if he could”.

[Comment: So police can use as much force to suppress seniors demonstrating and the public expected to sit and just take it? Police should be arresting those who instigate violence (such as the black clad protesters causing violence — likely plants), not beating up protestors willy nilly. If the police had not tear gassed seniors, it is very likely this incident would not have happened.]

Orban: Islam and Open Borders Will Divide EU Into ‘Two Civilisations’

Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban has said that the policies of “liberal” forces in the European Union will divide the bloc into an increasingly Islamic west and a traditional European-Christian east.

Making his first address to the media of 2019 in Budapest on Thursday, Prime Minister Orban said his country’s objective is to ensure anti-mass migration forces become “a majority in every EU constitutional system” in May’s European Parliament elections, to combat the “progressive” open-borders policies driving the bloc’s current direction.

“Liberal thinking in Europe is the main enemy of freedom. Liberals today are the enemies of freedom in Europe,” Mr Orban explained.

“Instead of one unified civilisation, there will be two civilisations in Europe. There will be a mixed civilisation, which builds its future on a mixed Islamic and Christian co-existence.

“But we in Central Europe still say Europe is a Christian civilisation, and say Europe should belong to Europeans.”

The Meaning of the Cryptic Messages on the Economist’s “The World in 2019” Cover

A look at the cryptic symbolism found on the cover of the Economist’s “The World in 2019” which includes the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. What are they trying to tell us?

Every December, the reputed magazine The Economist publishes a special edition that predicts the trends and the events of the year to come. And every time, the cover of these editions is an elaborate collection of images referring to various people and concepts. While the meaning of some of these images is obvious, others appear to be coded for “those in the know”. This year’s edition is no exception. In fact, it is more cryptic than ever.

Why would anybody spend time deciphering these covers? Because The Economist isn’t just any publication — it is directly connected with the world’s elite. It is partly owned by the Rothschild banking family of England and its editor-in-chief, John Micklethwait, has attended the Bilderberg Conference several times. In short, the leadership at The Economist has inside knowledge of the elite’s agenda, and they do their best to promote it.

As seen in my articles about the 2015 and 2017 editions of The Economist, these covers are often replete with occult elite symbolism, mixed with subtle messages about the many ways the elite controls the masses. The 2019 edition is more blatant than ever.

UK: Grayling: Blocking Brexit ‘Would Open Door to Extremist Forces’

Transport Minister and Brexiteer Chris Grayling has warned that an attempt by MPs to stop Brexit would “open the door to extremist populist political forces”.

Grayling, a close ally of Theresa May who campaigned for Leave, wants politicians to back May’s deal. “People have to think long and hard about how they are going to vote. This is too important for political game-playing and I urge Conservative MPs who back Brexit and others to back the deal.”

He told the Daily Mail that if it doesn’t happen “we risk a break with the British tradition of moderate, mainstream politics that goes back to the Restoration in 1660”.

Viktor Orban Joins Right-Wing Leaders’ Plan to Take Over EU — and Predicts There Will be “Two Civilisations” In Europe in the Future

Matteo Salvini, the right-wing Interior Minister in the Italian government, recently called for a Rome-Warsaw axis to build “a new Europe” that was against migration.

“I’d like to create a pact, an alliance for everyone who wants to save Europe, the more of us, the better,” he said. Poland’s right-wing Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said earlier this week that “with Mr Salvini we are on the same page with regards to many European matters”. Austria’s right-wing chancellor Sebastian Kurz last year called for an anti-immigration “axis” using the same language. He then cited Italy and Germany as possible allies.

Five Things About What Rahaf Mohammed Alqunun Was Running From in Saudi Arabia

OTTAWA — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced Friday that Canada would accept 18-year-old Rahaf Mohammed Alqunun as a refugee after she fled Saudi Arabia for Thailand and launched a Twitter campaign to win her freedom from a barricaded airport hotel room. Alqunun said she feared for her life if she were forced to return to Saudi Arabia. Her father and brother travelled to Bangkok to retrieve her. Alqunun’s ordeal helped shine a light on the plight of women in Saudi Arabia, including its controversial “guardianship” laws, which subject women to the control of men.

Jesus as Son of God? Muslims Now Claim Christian Beliefs ‘Mock Islam’

Response is to attack those who are not Islamic

A Christian commentator isn’t saying, “I told you so.”

But he could.

With the most recent developments in Uganda, where, according to a Washington Times report, Muslims are now considering “any public statement of the Christian faith,” to be an insult to Muslims.

And then they believe they can “justifiably exact revenge.”

Including violent attacks against Christians making statements about their faith.

It is commentator Robert Spencer who has written at FrontPageMag that the Times report explains the “extraordinary revelation.”

“Muslims now consider any public statement of the Christian faith to be a calculated insult to Muslims, for which they can justifiably exact revenge,” he said. “This is, or should be, sobering news for the comfortable Christians of the West who have made an idol out of ‘interfaith dialogue’ and fastidiously avoid saying anything remotely critical about Islam, even as the Muslim persecution of Christians continues worldwide.”

Epic! Black and Hispanic Trump Supporters Rip Into Pro-Sanctuary City Council [Video]

“Sanctuary Cities Are RACIST!” she shouted.

An unidentified black Cudahy, CA. resident took to the podium and ripped into the city council members for their “racist” policies that benefit illegal aliens while punishing Black American citizens.

“The black community” she shouted, “has been destroyed by illegal immigration!”

Pointing at the city council members, she pointed out how illegal aliens are given special treatment that American citizens aren’t entitled to: “When my people commit a crime we get three strikes” When ILLEGAL ALIENS commit crimes “they get amnesty & benefits—and they’re not paying taxes!”

The frustrated California citizen told the city council members, “Thank God for Trump!” and that they should all be “ashamed of themselves!”

Before she walks away from the podium, the angry CA resident reveals to the City Council members that she works as a tax manager in four different states and that she knows that illegal aliens are gaming the tax system in America.

Farmer Sends Trump Message Amid Border Fight: “Build the Wall”

‘Yes Mr. President stand your ground and ‘Get-R-Done’,’ says farmer

A farmer in North Dakota used his snow-covered field to send a message of encouragement to President Trump amid his struggle to secure funding for a US-Mexico border wall.

“Yes Mr. President stand your ground and ‘Get-R-Done’,” Gene Hanson wrote on Facebook Tuesday, sharing a photo of his farmland inscribed with the words “BUILD THE WALL” in all caps.

The message to Trump comes as he wages an uphill battle with Democrats to reach a negotiation on border wall funding, or continue a government shutdown that on Friday entered day 21, tying it up with the longest shutdown in history.

Michelle Malkin: ‘So-Called Worker Shortage’ is a ‘Manufactured Crisis’

Malkin cast immigration as a multifaceted issue affecting culture, economics, and national security.

“This has been the third rail for Republican politicians because, of course, immigration is not just a national security and a public safety issue,” stated Malkin. “It is a cultural issue. It is an economic security issue.”

Malkin went on to say, “It’s not just blue-collar American workers, of course— a lot of high-tech American workers who worked really hard and are the best in their industry and business in high tech, and then discover by the time that they’re 40 or 45 — and by no means over the hill — that they’re priced out of the market by a horde of cheap, foreign, inferior labor in an industry that so many American politicians say that there’s a so-called worker shortage in. That’s a manufactured crisis, if you want to talk about a manufactured crisis.”

Malkin praised Donald Trump’s refusal to acquiesce to left-wing and partisan Democrat charges of “racism,” “xenophobia,” and “ethnophobia” in response to the president’s calls for immigration reform and border security.

Malkin said, “President Trump [is willing] to push back against the old, tired racism, xenophobia, ethnophobia card in the face of this and really to show how disingenuous the open borders left is.”

Migrants From Terrorist Nations Try to Enter U.S. Via Mexico at Record Rates— 300% Hike in Bangladeshis in Texas Alone

Federal agents along the southern border routinely encounter individuals from terrorist nations and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) considers them one of the top threats to the United States, according to a congressional report made public this month. Titled “Stopping Terrorist Travel Through Illicit Pathways to the Homeland,” the document outlines the findings of a lengthy investigation involving Special Interest Aliens (SIA) by the House Homeland Security Committee. SIA’s are individuals from countries outside the western hemisphere—mostly the Middle East, Asia and Africa—that pose a national security risk to the U.S. In Laredo, Texas alone there was an astounding 300% increase in immigrants from Bangladesh, a south Asian Islamic country well known as a recruiting ground for terrorist groups such as ISIS and Al-Qaeda Indian Subcontinent (AQIS)

Congressional investigators found that the number of SIAs flowing north via Latin America has increased tremendously in the last few years thanks to established Transitional Criminal Organizations (TCO) that facilitate travel along drug and migrant smuggling routes. “On a recent Committee staff delegation trip to Latin America, Panamanian officials communicated to Committee staff that tens of thousands of SIAs have entered Panama since 2014,” the report states. “Colombian officials communicated similar numbers to Committee staff, stating that hundreds of SIAs have entered Colombia each year for the past few years. In both countries, nearly all the SIA migrants were headed to the United States and originated from the Middle East, Asia, and Africa—including Syria, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Somalia, Bangladesh, India, Eritrea, and many others. Additionally, encounters with these special interest individuals resulted in the seizure of tens of thousands of fraudulent documents—including passports and visas—that facilitated travel from their countries of origin through the Americas.”

Parents of Recently Killed Son Speak Directly to “3-Yr-Old” Nancy Pelosi…”This is Our Son…”

“…And He Is DEAD! He Died At The Hands Of An Illegal Immigrant…It’s NOT ‘Fabricated!’“

On Saturday night at 6:34 p.m., 22-year-old Pierce Kennedy Corcoran of Knoxville, Tennessee was taken to the local hospital immediately after a four-car collision. He was pronounced dead. His girlfriend who was a passenger in the car was treated for non-life threatening injuries at the hospital.

No one else involved in the four-car collision was injured.

The illegal alien who was driving a Chevy truck and crossed the highway to hit Corcoran and his girlfriend head-on are living in the United States without a drivers license and no insurance.

The Knoxville Police Department said Franco Cambrany Francisco-Eduardo, 44, is being charged with criminally negligent homicide. He’s also being charged for not having a driver’s license and not having insurance. Records also show he was on a hold with ICE.

During her interview with the parents, Laura Ingraham asked the parents of Pierce Corcoran’s parents how they feel when Democrats talk so “glibly” about the death of their son?

D.J. Corcoran’s emotional response was heartbreaking: “It really ticks me off when I see Pelosi acting like a 3-yr-old, and saying that it’s ‘fabricated.’“ Mr. Corcoran looked directly at the camera, as he held up a framed photo of his son, and told the Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi:

“So, MissPelosi— THIS IS OUR SON…this was Pierce Corcoran. He is dead. His death is real! His death is real—it’s not ‘fabricated!’ And he died at the hands of an illegal immigrant—and we’re upset about that. We feel that the government owes the American people better than that. And it really just upsets us when you tell the American people that it doesn’t matter. Well, it matters to us.”

Priest: Blame ‘White Tribe’ For Anti-Mass Migration Attitudes

Italian priest Alex Zanotelli has blamed the current popular support for anti-mass migration policies on the “white tribe”, claiming that white people feel “threatened” by mass migration and demographic replacement.

Father Zanotelli, who has had a long background in social activism, blamed “whites” from European countries, including Italy, rejecting the migrant transport vessels Sea Eye and Sea Watch from docking in their ports earlier this month, Il Giornale reports.

Soros-Tied Hillary Alumni Group Raising Funds to Challenge Trump’s ‘Racist Wall’ In Courts

Demand Justice claims: “This lawless president has created a humanitarian crisis along the southern border.”

Demand Justice, an organization founded by former members of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign and associated with a “social welfare organization” financed by billionaire activist George Soros, is raising money for an eventual court fight against what the group describes as President Trump’s proposed “racist, unnecessary wall.”

Demand Justice claims: “This lawless president has created a humanitarian crisis along the southern border of our country by targeting asylum seekers; already, two children have died in U.S. border patrol custody.”

The organization fails to mention that Trump’s proposed barrier seeks to stop the “humanitarian crisis” of illegal aliens, including children, attempting the dangerous trek to cross the porous U.S.-Mexico border.

Watch: Pelosi Just Called Border Wall ‘A Luxury Our Country Can’t Afford’ [Video]

Nancy Pelosi must think Americans are a bunch of dimwits because she just said that the border wall is a ‘luxury our country can’t afford’ (video below).

Does she have a clue about how many billions it costs for us to have open borders?

What about the drugs and crime coming across our border? Does she not care about that?

James O’Keefe just went down to the border to check out what’s there and it’s a total disgrace!

OTTAWA — People’s Party Leader Maxime Bernier says his party’s policies will not include anything to do with abortion or gender identity, despite the fact its first candidate besides him is a vocal social conservative.

Bernier is defending the appointment of former Christian talk-show host Laura-Lynn Tyler Thompson to be the Burnaby South byelection candidate for the party he founded after parting ways with the Conservative party in August.

George Soros and the Cult of Death

by Srdja Trifkovic

The Financial Times has selected George Soros as its Person of the Year. According to the paper, this choice was made both as a reflection of his achievements and for the values he represents:

He is the standard bearer of liberal democracy and open society… For more than three decades, Mr Soros has used philanthropy to battle against authoritarianism, racism and intolerance. Through his long commitment to openness, media freedom and human rights, he has attracted the wrath of authoritarian regimes and, increasingly, the national populists who continue to gain ground, particularly in Europe.

Reading this nonsense has prompted me to revisit Soros after almost a decade. In reality this “philanthropist” is a monster who has been promoting—relentlessly—the Western world’s political, moral and biological decay. Philanthropy used to be defined as “love to mankind; benevolence toward the whole human family; universal good will; desire and readiness to do good to all men.” Through his Open Society Institute and its vast network of affiliates, George Soros has provided extensive financial and lobbying support for groups that advocate lifestyles and causes that are invariably destructive, or outright repellant…

Understanding the Most Important Phrase in Social Justice

The most important phrase in the social justice lexicon is “predicated on power structure.” You’ve likely heard that racism, privilege, and cultural appropriation — the big three of social justice — are predicated on power structure. The origin of this power structure is societal. According to social justice scholarship, society is an arbitrary social construct — meaning that society is a complete nonsensical fabrication — that is inequitably structured to favor white, male, able-bodied, cisgendered heterosexuals. The theory assumes that these people are successful in life because society is structured to favor them, and they use the inequitable structure of society to socially advance by stepping on the heads and shoulders of “people of color” or “others.” These others are unsuccessful because white men are stepping on their heads and shoulders to get ahead. Should we fix the inequitable structure of society, we will restore the natural equity of the world. In theory, those at the bottom will rise to the top, and those at the top will sink to a lower social status.

To the social justice scholar, racism, privilege, and cultural appropriation are based on a simple formula: racism, privilege, cultural appropriation equals prejudice plus power structure. Therefore, only those benefiting from societal power structure — i.e., white men (and, to a lesser extent, those with any of the aforementioned demographic characteristics), are capable of having privilege, being racist, or appropriating culture.

By this logic, anything anti-white male is technically not racist, despite the overwhelming gut feeling many of us have while hearing and seeing anti-white rhetoric and actions.

What a Socialist Really Wants

What exactly is a socialist? You could spend all day studying encyclopedias and not settle anything. Using various definitions, you could probably prove that anybody is or isn’t a socialist.

So let’s talk to a socialist. Ignore the verbiage and look inside his head. When someone announces to the world, “I’m a socialist,” what is that person thinking?

With this focus, everything becomes simpler. Socialists may not be able to claim experience, learning, smarts, or success. But they make up for all that by a boundless certitude about philosophical and political matters. It’s as if they, albeit atheists, are guided by a divine vision. What is the central assertion contained in that vision? Here, I believe, is what the self-proclaimed socialist is saying to the rest of us:

“You pathetic losers are clearly not qualified to run your own lives. Or if you think you are, you’re probably in the grip of dangerous beliefs that need to be discarded. All in all, it would be better if you stayed out of the way and let experts manage your life. That would be I and my cronies.”

  1. Regarding Soros, Gypsies and Eastern Europe. I already left this comment some time ago, but now I’ll repeat it.

    The Human Rights Council recommended legalizing the gypsy squatter

    At the meeting it was recommended that on April 8, the International Day of Gypsies should issue a decree on support for the Gypsies of Russia. It proposes to assign the houses that they occupied as of January 1, 2018 to Roma. The exceptions are cases when houses were obtained with the help of grave and especially grave crimes.

    Among other things, it was recommended to organize the study of the Gypsy language in schools where Gypsies are densely populated, to create, under the director of the Federal Agency for Nationalities Affairs, the post of ombudsman for the protection of the rights of Gypsies, who will be nominated by Gypsy national cultural autonomy.

    Roskomnadzor is recommended to stop publications that incite hatred towards people of Gypsy nationality, and the Ministry of Internal Affairs is to issue passports to Gypsies who have not received them.

    https://www.rod-pravo.org/sovet-po-pravam-cheloveka-rekomendoval-legalizovat-cyganskij-samostroj/

    • “International Day of Gypsies ”

      Now everyone, every group, every hobby and every thing has its own day.

      So, will the Gypsies settle down now and become more productive citizens because of these benefits?

      A friend of mine in Spain said that the Spanish government gave an entire apartment building to Gypsies in his town. Within months they destroyed it by keeping livestock inside some of the apartments and removing all the wooden doors to use for fire wood.

      • All you need to do is to check the history of Gypsies in Czechia during the communist rule. They prohibited them from wandering and forced them to settle right wherever the police caught them, actively breaking family ties.
        They were forced to work by law (everyone was, if you didn’t work, you faced jail time). Come 1990 and a new government right after the revolution, laws get eased up, gypsies massively leave the working process. We now have gypsy children that have no working relative and hence in no way consider it necessary to oblige to the rules of the majority (they usually don’t go to school much either). In my town they were housed in the city center, back in those days people avoided going there because it was so dangerous (they behave the same way muslim migrants do, hanging around and starting s[tuff]).

        Those houses are beautiful old buildings. The city was founded by the king and hence has a big square with a church in the center, so you have an idea how old and hence valuable those houses are. Completely ruined by the gypsies.
        Others were given brand new housing. Google pictures of “Chanov” or “sidliste chanov”. And they still live in some of those houses. The government slowly moves them elsewhere (or builds new housing) and tears the old ones down. Those blockhouses are the same age or younger and most across the country (and Europe), yet the inhabitants by Czech flourish. A few years back there was a case of two gypsies having an argument and one fell from the 10th or so floor, because they’ve torn out the railing, but nothing happened to him because the house was surrounded by garbage up to the 3rd floor!

        Nowadays most still don’t work and have little education. Part of their culture is to consider a boy an adult man once he starts bringing money into the household, so often they will drop out of school as teenagers in order to get some kind of job so they can be treated as adults. They’re extremely good at using welfare, so they get every penny they can and make a nice living that way. Of course, all activist groups will tell you I’m just racist and throwing them all in one sack, but that’s the reality of it, whether a minority of them works and lives normal lives. In fact, they often have to completely leave their community if they want to live normally.

        What does help prevent some crime is the use of gypsy officers (well, usually they’re not really officers, they’re some kind of assistant that patrols around the ghettoes).

        And we’re pretty well off compared to anyone east of us. Check out gypsy villages in Eastern Slovakia or Romania, those are real wasteholes! I’m pretty sure it’s the same in Russia. I’m afraid establishing their schools and communities will only worsen that problem, rather than solving anything.

  2. re: Kids Punish Freeloaders

    I’ve noticed something very obvious about current Left / Socialism vs. that of the 20th century and that currently in China:

    There is virtually no compulsion for people to work.

    One of the foundations of Socialism is the need for all able bodied people to work in any possible means to help support the economy and move the country forward. Every one gets benefits, but everyone must work so the economy can afford the benefits. The willingness to work is viewed as a public display of commitment to one’s own neighbours, the country, and the entire socialist cause. Work was to be the main part of a person’s identity.

    The new socialism creates and encourages freeloading.

    Most of the highly committed Soviets were ordinary citizens who worked long hours for little pay. Today, the average Western socialist may have a job but they don’t appear to be demanding or even gently encouraging others to work as a means of helping to generate the wealth, primarily through paying taxes and generating corporate profits, in order to pay for all the benefits they demand everyone should receive.

    This is a spineless socialism. The necessary wealth to pay for eveyone’s benefits and to allow people to live without working, appears to be sought mainly from re-distributing the wealth from the middle and upper class. This is nothing more than a boutique socialism based on entitlement and not the old socialism which primarily entitled people to have easy access to jobs and access to education to earn a better job. It was all about jobs and working.

    • A good point leCanadien.
      It is something many of us innately know, but you have articulated this very well.

      I wonder if it is a gap of non work, that academia, that works so hard, 🙂 seemed to have missed and its many followers also believing that they can be part of the elite.
      That allows a jealousy factor of any other supposed elite, such as being rich, the boss, employers, the canny wise thrifty savers, making them targets for “kindly” redistribution

      Also regular reliable payments for salaries, then like pensions, benefits, means that people do not have to put aside for contingencies. These days they are simply “topped up” as an ’emergency payment’. So there is no awareness of providing for difficult times, that is with in oneself through work and savings, instead expecting the state to provide.

  3. re: AOC is tool of the elite:

    I believe she understands she is a tool but I don’t think she cares.

    She is having fun, making money and becoming famous. Soon she may have more power. A good trade-off for allowing yourself to be a tool. Not much different than a pro-athlete or a model.

  4. re: Saudi monument

    What happened to the ‘separation of Church and State’ which has been used to remove Christian monuments?

    Is this a privately owned space?

    • All I know is that a few people directed attention to The Port Authority of New York so they must have approved it.

    • I wonder if anyone would notice or care if there was a monument with Biblical scripture verses written in a foreign script?

      It would be a dilemma for the Left if an Arab Christian group erected a monument.

  5. “The Saudi teenager who fled her “abusive” family to seek asylum abroad has arrived in Canada.”

    It’s been interesting to watch the way the MSM has reported this story. Those of us who read the woman’s original facebook posts will recall she said she had “renounced Islam” and that provided some explanation of the persecution from her family. The photos in Bangkok she posted and when in the company of UNHCR showed her without a hijab and wearing non Islamic dress. But as the days past, the religious basis of her refugee plea was lost from the MSM. Many reports mentioned her fear of violent attack from father and family but no explanation why she had these fears. But she is an apostate from Islam and so under a death sentence, but that bit of information the media in general won’t give out. In fact religious persecution, whether she is now a Christian or Atheist is a legitimate refugee asylum category. But the media won’t highlight anything that makes Islam and devout followers of it, look bad.

    • The moslems must fear that the MSM could trigger a mass female revolt against islam. Since the MSM chooses to be silent on the religious context I would say that they are then partly responsible for helping to keep millions of women trapped in islam. Where are the parades of women’s rights groups to protest this MSM issue?

  6. Satanic Sabbath in the Cathedral of Vienna

    https://www.facebook.com/redheraldos/posts/287492228567131?__tn__=C-R

    World AIDS Day: Charity campaign in St. Stephen’s Cathedral in Vienna

    Comment from Russian LiveJournal:

    Our so-called Catholic Church has reached yet another bottom, which is generally characteristic of the era of the rule of Antipapa Berguli. Recently, on World AIDS Day (December 1), the Vienna Cardinal Schönborn staged in the main cathedral of the country, in the heart of our city, in the Cathedral of St. Stefan, “charity concert”, and in fact, rock sabbat. The photo can be admired on Facebook.

    Half-naked musicians and artists, and some of the aunts were dressed in some kind of horned creatures, similar to Baphomet, with faces of skeletons, danced with their feet on the altar balustrade. On the very one that from my Catholic Latgalian childhood to me is known as Dievgalds, “God’s table”. Once upon a time, people were quietly and intently kneeling on their knees. Participle. Now, with the blessing of the head of the local church, half-naked demon-possessed dancing in boots and aunts with false horns.

    I remember how much noise Pussy Riot made in Moscow when they quietly danced in the HHS, and only then put it on the picture of the guitar roars. And they were going to carve them out, then to execute, or even forcefully, to feed them with pancakes. These pussies after such Viennese tricks fit to be canonized, like the holy martyrs who suffered from Domostroi.

    THEY, led by Antipapa-Islamizer Bergulia, took away the Church from me, took away the temples of God from me, making them a den of robbers and a gathering of wicked idiots. Their goal is to destroy everything that is possible. All of Europe, some of its countries, nations, cultures, flooded them with baurumans and wild Moors – brigands, biiytsy, rapists and cannibals. I am not inclined to look for sect-like, secluded comfort zones, not mine. But neither conscience, nor artistic taste, nor a university master’s degree in theology, allow us to consider this organization as the Church of Christ, which has been for me a refuge and refuge of the soul in the Council of Europe since early childhood. No, this is not my church! Not mine anymore. And what to do with it, I can not imagine.

    • I imagine many Protestants who are very anti-Catholic are shocked at this level of degredation in the Catholic church.

      I grew up in the Catholic church and attended Catholic schools and even contemplated becoming a missionary priest at one point, and I have to admit that, looking back, I did see in the Church the seeds of such outrageous and demonic garbage. To celebrate Halloween at school we were allowed to dress up in demonic outfits complete with blood stains. However, such things as this event held in an actual church would have been completely unthinkable at that time.

      It is no wonder moslems believe they are on a civilising mission to Europe.

      • Yes we are shocked. Nevertheless, we have been expecting this since the Reformation, because the Catholic Church is in its very form led by a sinful man, and therefore subject to shocking turnarounds and mood swings and politics and so on…

        It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man. It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes.

        • Since the Reformation?? Seriously? You’ve had to wait that long?

          All religious leaders are sinful, as are we all sinful, Barn Swallow. This particular papal iteration is worse than most, but he can safely be ignored, so most Catholics do. Just as the average Episcopalian in the pew ignores whoever has enough political connections to get himself/herself into power as the Presiding Bishop.

          Meanwhile, the conservative and schismatic Pius X Catholics have a waiting list for seminary entrance.

          It all depends on where you look and what you’re looking for.

      • The more is costs someone to be a Christian the more the ‘fence sitters’ will flee.

        From the article you cite:

        “…Welby made his controversial decision to allow the Masonic service in Canterbury cathedral because of a large donation, “Canterbury Cathedral agreed to hold the service of thanksgiving to celebrate 300 years of Freemasonry after receiving a donation of £300,000 ($374,520) from the Masons….”

        30 peices of silver…..

    • So, I wonder how many homosexual firefighters will be willing to fight fires in a German moslem ghetto? I suppose no one would know they are homosexual, but if I was a homosexual, I would be nervous to enter regardless. I’m sure the gov’t and perhaps the moslems will demand that only heterosexual men be allowed to fight fires in moslem areas.

      The march of equality continues….
