Day of the Dead on the Road to Calais

Let’s see what a European truck driver thinks of the numberless hordes of Islamic “refugees” vomited forth by the Third World. It can’t be easy trying to get a rig to Calais without having it submerged underneath a cockroach swarm of colonists trying to get to England as stowaways so as to enjoy British welfare benefits, which are world famous for their counterproductive generosity. Sorry about the language, but in this case it is justified:

I love the part where he makes as if to run them over and the roaches scatter. France ought to offer a bounty on each one a trucker makes into roadkill. Better still, the military should apply machine guns to the problem as necessary at the point of entry. This is an invading army of conquest. Every country has not only the right but the duty to defend itself.

Russia Bans Soros’s Subversive Outfit

As mentioned previously, George Soros is subsidizing the corrosive Black Lives Matter spectacles, the purpose of which is to undermine society through the basic cultural Marxist tactic of playing off perpetually aggrieved minorities against the core population. Looks like the Russians are onto him:

The Russian Prosecutor General’s Office has recognized George Soros’s Open Society Institute and another affiliated organization as undesirable groups, banning Russian citizens and organizations from participation in any of their projects.

The Russian government recognizes threats to society. In contrast, the current American government allies itself with the most insidious of these threats. This is because Soros has already begun to get his money’s worth here.

The Black Lives Matter Demands

American blacks are privileged in the extreme. Affirmative Action, the welfare state, and an official ideology according to which they are regarded as sacred and criticism of them as blasphemous combine to grant them every advantage. They enjoy all the bounties of a civilization that they could never create for themselves, as a cursory glance at any black country confirms, and they are not even expected to behave responsibly in return. Yet they are constantly throwing tantrums, more so than ever now that an unqualified leftist was made president primarily because he is one of them. What is all the screaming about? What could they possibly want that they have not already been handed on a silver platter without having deserved it?

A site called The Demands attempts to gather all the various demands of the useless spoiled brats comprising the Black Lives Matter movement in a single place. A few representative samples from various factions:

• WE DEMAND free tuition for Black and indigenous students.

By “free,” they mean we pay for it. Indians are thrown in for window dressing, in a crude attempt to mitigate their appalling greediness.

• We demand that the University of Missouri creates and enforces comprehensive racial awareness and inclusion curriculum throughout all campus departments and units, mandatory for all students, faculty, staff and administration. This curriculum must be vetted, maintained, and overseen by a board comprised of students, staff and faculty of color.

The objective of the brainwashing is an intellectually homogenous, totalitarian environment.

• President [Carolyn “Biddy”] Martin [Amherst College] must issue a statement of support for the revision of the Honor Code to reflect a zero-tolerance policy for racial insensitivity and hate speech.

Anything a person of color decides to be offended by must result in draconian punishment. Being perpetually offended is the cudgel they beat us with.

• Non-consequential reporting system for students to disclose microaggressions, for monitoring incidents and tracking campus climate similar to the non-mandatory reporting of sexual assault.

No perceived microaggression, no matter how insignificant, can be allowed to pass. Otherwise they would not be able to impose a “campus climate” in which everything down to facial expressions is regulated.

• Collaboratively Design & Launch the Bias Response Team (BRT) with Students of Color.

Orwell referred to this as the Thought Police.

• Increase funding of Black student organizations and programs.

No matter how much of other people’s money you throw at them, they will always want more as a reward for their bullying behavior.

• Increase percentage of tenured faculty of color by 20% for the 2017-2018 school year, and by 100% over the next 5 years.

Employment is like money; no matter how much is taken from those who deserve and given to those who demand, the demanders will always want more.

• We demand that there be a 30 percent increase of underrepresented minority students by the 2019-2020 school year.

It was Affirmative Action that reduced our universities to daycare centers in the first place. Doubling down on this insanity will accelerate the tragic decline of the entire institution of what was once called “higher” education.

• We demand that Tufts be better prepared to address the mental health needs of Black students.

Okay, maybe that one is a good idea.

Via Black Youth Project, other demands include:

• We want reparations for chattel slavery, Jim Crow and mass incarceration.

Reparations for slavery have already been made, via $trillions wasted subsidizing shiftlessness through the welfare state. The idea of demanding reparations for having been incarcerated for committing crimes highlights just how insane the “civil rights” movement has become.

• We want a guaranteed income for all, living wages, a federal jobs program, and freedom from discrimination for all workers.

Even in the Soviet Union, people were expected to work. But not in liberal utopia. Only the supposed oppressors will work. Others will get free tuition and a guaranteed “living wage” at the expense of the white slave class.

Without Affirmative Action and wealth redistribution, rather than preventing capable students from learning, Black Lives Matter types would be working to support themselves at tasks appropriate for their level of intellectual capacity, mainly janitorial. They are conspicuously not serious people. Consequently, their infantile demands are not serious, even though most of them will probably be granted.

Weasel Zippers zeroes in on the actual point of the whole appalling spectacle:

The issue is never the issue. The issue is always how to bring the ‘system’ down, whatever the vehicle.

Black Youth Project is a Soros-funded group. They received at least $350,000 in 2011 from Open Society Foundations which is Soros’s foundation.

Their purpose is not resolution, but pumping up the chaos.

That’s what community organizing is all about. Some coincidence that these tantrums break out across the country during the presidency of someone who shares the Black Lives Matter ideology and whose only meaningful work experience is community organizing, isn’t it?

60 Minutes to Help Rehabilitate Ethel Rosenberg

The job of 60 Minutes is to repackage ultra-left lunacy in superficially reasonable tones for mainstream consumption, so it is perfectly suited to the task of rehabilitating Ethel Rosenberg. You thought only the communist kooks running New York City would champion a woman who helped put Stalin in a position to kill us by the millions with nuclear weapons? Wrong:

Obama’s presidency isn’t over until the end of next year, yet rumors already are swirling about who he might pardon.

One name in particular keeps surfacing: Ethel Rosenberg, a dedicated communist and convicted espionage conspirator.

Those who regard her as a hero for spying on behalf of the Soviet Union are ramping up their lobbying efforts.

There’s a New York City Council proclamation calling for an “Ethel Rosenberg Day of Justice in the Borough of Manhattan,” and a forthcoming segment of “60 Minutes” that will endeavor to show Ethel received an unfair trial and never should have been executed.

On the contrary, thanks to the Venona files, we now know just how richly Ethel Rosenberg deserved execution.

Only the comfortably ignorant can now deny the extent of the damage done or who the players were. Ethel’s role should no longer be in question.

The phrase “comfortably ignorant” apply describes the 60 Minutes audience. The cure for their malady is a dose of reality:

• Ethel was critical in getting her brother, David [Greenglass], a machinist at Los Alamos, NM, to turn over documents and drawings that confirmed what they were already receiving from nuclear physicists such as Klaus Fuchs and Ted Hall.

• Ethel was trusted by at least two KGB spies, Semyon Semyonov and Alexander Feklisov. Masters of espionage tradecraft, Soviet spies awarded their trust to only the most loyal and dedicated American operatives.

• Ethel was present when Julius had meetings with spy ring members such as Joel Barr and Nathan Sussman. The couple’s small apartment was often used for meetings and the exchange of purloined documents.

• As the FBI closed in on the Rosenberg spy ring in the aftermath of revelations from physicist Fuchs, chemist Harry Gold, Greenglass and other Americans caught in the web of lies, Ethel was quickly assigned the task of collecting incriminating evidence and keeping it from law-enforcement authorities.

• After Julius was arrested and imprisoned, he informed another prisoner, Eugene Tartakow, an FBI plant, that Ethel assisted him on many of his spy projects.

To conclude:

[A] presidential pardon would be a disservice to those who fought totalitarianism and respect historical truth.

But leftists have a fetish for the Rosenbergs. So 60 Minutes will rewrite history to absolve her, and Obama will grant the pardon. If liberals remain in power, Julius Rosenberg will follow in time.

At least we don’t have to worry about Obama pardoning Benedict Arnold, since he hates Britain as much as America.

The Rosenbergs: pure moonbat evil.

Federal Government Advises People to Drink Water When They Are Thirsty

Although it deliberately fails to perform the fundamental duty that justifies its existence — i.e., defend the border from foreign incursion — the federal government isn’t quite useless. It offers valuable advice to those unable to figure things out for themselves. For example, here is what the Beltway’s vast army of overpaid bureauweenies advises you to do if you get thirsty:

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has put together a webpage offering people instructions on how much water to drink, which includes the advice that people should drink to “quench your thirst throughout the day.”

But how much should we drink?

“Let your thirst be your guide,” the tipsheet says.

Being the product of moonbats, the tipsheet is righteously environmentally conscientious.

“Fill a clean, reusable water bottle and toss it in your bag or brief case to quench your thirst throughout the day. Reusable bottles are also easy on the environment.”

There, didn’t that make your life better? Now get to work, so that you can generate tax revenue; this useful advice doesn’t come for free. The cancer calling itself the federal government costs us $3.9 TRILLION per year.

Weasel Zippers has some more advice. Don’t drink water that the federal government has gotten its hands on:

Now Global Warming Causes Giant Flying Boulders

At last we really do have a consensus on the global warming crisis: no one takes it seriously. But that only challenges moonbats to come up with ever more hysterical lies. Thoroughly discredited, shark-jumping global warming activist James Hansen, who pushed global cooling back when it was politically fashionable, now screeches that two rocks atop a cliff in the Bahamas prove that global warming causes what a WaPo headline describes as giant flying boulders:

The idea is that Earth’s climate went through a warming period just over 100,000 years ago that was similar in many ways to the warming now attributed to the actions of man. And the changes during that period were so catastrophic, they spawned massively powerful superstorms, causing violent ocean waves that simply lifted the boulders from below and deposited them atop this cliff.

If this is true, the effort kicking off in Paris this week to hold the world’s nations to strict climate targets may be even more urgent than most people realize.

Yes, indeed. It would mean that our moonbat overlords need to raise our taxes and lower our standard of living at once lest we be crushed by flying boulders.

Fortunately, everything that comes out of global warming cultists and profiteers like Hansen is absolute crap.

Giant flying boulders. Add them to The List.

Possibly the Best Argument Yet in Favor of Trump

The personification of limousine leftism at its most clueless and obnoxiously elitist, the unendurable Barbra Streisand, proclaims that she would choke if Donald Trump were president. Via Truth Revolt:

“What if that was Donald Trump up there, I couldn’t help thinking, ‘What would he say?’” she said. “This president [Obama] is so eloquent, so dignified, so smart.

“I probably would’ve choked,” she added. “It’s terrifyingly scary, but it’s funny. But scary.”

President Trump ought to put Barbra Streisand choking on pay per view. It might bring in enough to balance the budget.

Andrew Cuomo Brings The Man in the High Castle to Life

The Man in the High Castle — an alternative history tale about the Axis winning WWII — is more relevant now than it was when Philip K. Dick wrote it in 1962:

Of course the reason this is relevant now is that the Axis powers are a politically acceptable stand-in for the people who really have taken our country away from us. The fascistic governor of New York grasps the metaphor and has responded exactly as you would expect:

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo ordered that an ad campaign he didn’t like be removed from the New York City subway system, The Associated Press reports.

The ads, which had been approved by the Metropolitan Transit Authority, featured Nazi imagery and were meant to promote an Amazon video series, “The Man in the High Castle.”

Your Tax Dollar at Work

Guess who paid for the weaponry Muslims are using to kill Russians in Syria? That’s right, you:

With the USA out of the picture as a force for good thanks to our leadership crisis, it isn’t easy to find good guys among the players in Syria. Russia comes closer than anyone else; at least it is unambiguously opposed to the terrorist armies that recreants like Obama and fools like McCain have enabled. At the very least Russians are fellow non-Muslims.

Global Warming Consensus Is Real

Obama and other leftist oligarchs keep yelling that there is a consensus regarding global warming. Looks like they are right:

A November Fox News poll of more than 1,000 registered voters found that only 3 percent listed “climate change” as the most important issue facing the country today, down from 5 percent in August. Americans were much more worried about terrorism, the economy and immigration than global warming.

Even among Democrats concern for global warming was low. The Fox poll found only 6 percent of Democrats listed global warming as their top concern, compared to 1 percent of Republicans.

Ninety-seven percent don’t believe it is a genuine crisis, despite years of hysterical lies from our rulers in the government and media. We have a consensus, all right.

Judging by what we have in the White House, you would think that the majority population consists of witless bovine fools who can be herded off to any slaughterhouse without resistance. But maybe there is hope for us yet.

However, the imaginary global warming crisis remains the top concern of the federal government, which no longer even pretends to represent us.

Pretend War Against ISIS Compared to Actual Wars

The Islamic State is obviously at war with us, but are we at war back? Not really. Obama — who has been ISIS’s best friend — just has to make pretend for political reason:

Keep in mind that usually US pilots usually aren’t even allowed to drop their ordnance. Other times they bomb sites that have been abandoned because the same government that drops the expensive bombs we pay for warns the terrorists in advance.

ISIS and Obama are on the same side. It isn’t our side.

Why Our Government Imports Muslims Rather Than Actually Oppressed Christians From Syria

If you thought helping the desperately oppressed had anything to do with the importation of Muslim “refugees” through Syria, read this:

According to data by the State Department, the country has already accepted 2,184 Syrian refugees since 2011.

Of that number, 96 percent are Muslims, while only 2.4 percent are Christians. Syria’s population breakdown in 2011 consisted of 90 percent Muslim and 10 percent Christian.

There is no more persecuted group in the world than Christians trapped in areas controlled by the Islamic State. Children are crucified or buried alive for the faith of their parents. Yet our government’s emphasis is to import Muslims who are not particularly threatened and who have already made it safely to Turkey.

Why?

Much like the country’s immigration system, the refugee process highly favors individuals who come from polar opposite mindsets and polar opposite cultures.

It is no accident that, in stark contrast to the policy back when America was a successful melting pot, those least likely to assimilate are given priority. This is applied cultural Marxism, which calls for playing off perpetually aggrieved minority groups against the core population.

If unassimilable is good, downright hostile is even better:

Since the 9/11 attacks, the country has taken in 1.6 million immigrants from predominately Muslim countries. That is double the amount of Muslim immigrants that the country was taking in before 9/11.

Not all of the bureaucrats involved see the bigger picture of the destruction of American society. Some just want more votes:

The purposeful changing tide of favoring Muslims over Christians may largely have to do with the fact that Christians generally vote Republican and Muslims heavily vote for Democrats.

In a new Pew Research Center, some 69 percent of white Christians relate or are affiliated with the GOP.

In sharp contrast,

Back in 2012, a study conducted by Wenzel Strategies found that a whopping 72 percent of American Muslims said they were “definitely” supporting President Obama in his re-election. Only 11 percent said they were voting for the Republican challenger Mitt Romney.

In a functioning Republic, if the voters don’t like those running the government, they replace their representatives. In what America has become, it works the other way around; the government is replacing the voters.
