Unhappy Anniversary

August 30, 2016
Unhappy Anniversary

Germany recently marked an ignominious anniversary, one which future generations of Germans-assuming there are any-will look back upon with shame and regret. I’m speaking, of course, about Angela Merkel’s decision to welcome over a million settlers from the Islamic world into the bosom of her country. The horrific consequences of this monumental decision have been documented on an hourly basis for those who care to look. The fact that a majority of the German population no longer believes she’s fit to serve as Chancellor, and that over two-thirds believe her decision to deconstruct their nation was a bad idea is not nearly as shocking as the significant minority of Germans who still want to proceed along this suicidal path.

Fortunately, there are rumblings of an internal rift within the party she relies upon to maintain power. Whether or not this amounts to anything, the need to dethrone Angela Merkel is clear to anyone who cares about the future of Western civilization. Even if Germany retook control of its borders tomorrow, a pre-existing demographic tidal wave threatens to permanently efface German culture as we’ve known it for millennia. However, if nothing is done to reverse the catastrophic policies pursued by current European leaders, Europe as a continent is going to collapse. The fact that Mama Merkel herself is complaining about the reluctance her Czech, Hungarian, and Polish counterparts have shown in embracing vibrant diversity is telling. Read More »

The World According To Hillary

The World According To Hillary

One of the more fascinating aspects of California’s transformation into the politically uniform, post-caucasian, multicultural utopia so many open borders Democrats-and their unwitting Republican allies-have worked so hard to achieve is the response of the ruling class. Most impartial observers might ask whether the hundreds of billions of dollars in unfunded liabilities and public debt assumed by that state have some connection to the flight of the middle class and its wholesale replacement by the underclass exported by Mexico’s political and economic elite. However, elected officials have never been plagued by intellectual curiosity, particularly those whose careers are built upon ignoring or denying self-evident truths.

So instead of considering the possibility that the rampant corruption found throughout municipalities like Bell might be a foreign import, that some of the monumental problems facing California might have been exacerbated by its laissez faire immigration policies, the wise men of that state have decided to strike out in search of demons. Whether it’s crafting a law to protect the rights of less than 0.1 percent of the population-which are not imperiled-or contemplating bills which seek to suppress the speech of individuals who disagree with noted climatologist Al Gore, the sages in Sacramento have decided the best use of their resources is combating the vast, chimerical right wing conspiracy.

Say what you will about Donald Trump, it’s hard to conceive of any other Republican candidate whose surrogates include the greatest conservative Brit since Maggie Thatcher. Footage courtesy of Right Side Broadcasting.

 

Electing A New People

Electing A New People

I took the image you see above in my old stomping grounds of Bay Ridge, which has earned the moniker Beirut in recent years, for obvious reasons. Aside from the Alpine Theater-which was in danger of being added to the adjacent mosque at one point-and Galaxy Comics, you would be hard-pressed to find a building along Bay Ridge or 5th Avenue whose awning was not covered in Arabic script. Judging by the number of hookah bars, halal restaurants and food carts, not to mention demure apparel shops for the fashion forward 7th century Muslima, a tourist would be forgiven for thinking he’d landed somewhere in the Maghreb rather than southwest Brooklyn.

Lest you think the Islamic Leadership Of New York is merely a benign group of patriotic citizens, here is the website mobilizing this New York’s civic-minded Muslims. Although seemingly under construction, you will notice a few things which belie the red, white and blue messaging of the banner seen in my photograph. Leaving aside the fact that every member of this group’s executive committee is a man-I’m sure there’s absolutely no Koranic basis for that anomaly-you’ll also notice a few other oddities, including the prominent place of unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombings and former Louis Farrakhan acolyte  Siraj Wahhaj. After all, what could be more quintessentially American, more mom and apple pie, than working with the leader of a mosque which invites 9/11 truthers to expatiate on topics of public interest and believes this country serves no greater purpose than to enlarge upon the Caliphate?

Update: Amy Curtis has also set up a GoFundMe for her friend Charlie Watson, who’s lost his house. Charlie’s Flood Relief Campaign.

This video from The Weather Channel illustrates the breadth of the devastation, but also the depth of humanity, people in Louisiana are experiencing at the moment. Nearly a decade after Hurricane Katrina struck the Gulf Coast-and effaced large parts of New Orleans in the process-residents of Baton Rouge and the southern portion of Louisiana have been beset by flooding on an unprecedented scale.

For those of you who would like to help, CNN has provided some helpful links to organizations, including Samaritan’s Purse and a GoFundMe campaign by Louisiana Strong, which are assisting survivors of this catastrophic event. I urge you to contribute to the effort in whatever way you can.

Sudden Jihadi Syndrome Strikes again

Sudden Jihadi Syndrome Strikes again

Update: Stop carping about your subjugation, you nasty Islamophobe

This time in France, a nation where 200 people have been murdered-some after undergoing indescribable torture-and over 800 people maimed in the past year alone. Just as previous generations pondered important questions, e.g. is it live, or is it Memorex? So too we have to repeatedly ask ourselves, is it Islam or insanity? Does it really matter to the past or future victims of Islamic rage? We shouldn’t be asking why they hate us, we should be asking why they are still here. Also, what sort of collective psychosis produces pictures such as the one accompanying this article? The fact that there are soldiers and policemen protecting mosques while the men who worship within them systematically murder helpless Europeans symbolizes how besieged Western civilization is at the moment.

Iconoclasm

July 30, 2016

One of the intellectual curiosities New Yorkers, particularly those of a libertarian bent, have enjoyed for over 3 decades is Junto. A monthly gathering which explores the political and economic issues of our time, it’s hosted by Victor Niederhoffer, a trader and writer who brings his own unique perspective to each stimulating debate and/or lecture held at the General Society’s library building.

The despicable whitewashing of Hillary Clinton’s malfeasance continues to generate outrage in the unlikeliest places, including the usually ridiculous Huffington Post. The exoneration of the former Secretary of State at the hands of someone who has shown a penchant for overlooking the crimes of Clintonian public officials has raised the hackles of people across the political spectrum.
