Today is a very busy news day. The events in Cameroon alone may set of a chain of events. Speaking with a contributor to this site earlier today, it was explained that the strategic analysis report .pdf that was posted along with the video of Sebastien Gorka speaking at the Heritage Center, detailed how islamic organizations in fact planned to deal with small African nations in exactly the way they are. So its doubly interesting to see Cameroon react rationally to it. Watching the Obama admin’s reaction to it will be equally enlightening.
Iran’s chief nuclear negotiator is furious over the disclosure of the secret comments he made at a meeting with the officials of Iran’s regime controlled Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB). In that meeting, Araghchi called Iran’s nuclear program, an economic failure. He also confirmed sending arms to Hezbollah. […] When speaking about the economic angle of Iran’s nuclear program, Araghchi discloses something that has been widely denied by Iranian leaders, calling it a “major financial loss.” Araghchi says, “if we calculate the cost and expenses of nuclear production, it’s unimaginable, but we have paid the price for our dignity, independence and progress and being free from] ].bullying by the others [super powers].”

Prime Minister Harper has called for an election officially now, and the date is set for Oct. 19th.
(A Finnish conductor unwittingly demonstrates how leftist totalitarianism operates. If Finland used the electric chair, I would fumble around with a ‘poor conductor’ joke. As it is all I have is something about what happens when a socialist is ‘finnished’)
Midway between Pasila and Helsinki, rail commuters were caught off guard on Sunday evening as a VR employee commandeered the train’s public address system. Lulled by expectations of the standard onboard announcements, passengers were instead surprised by conductor Sameli Muurimäki’s impassioned speech about tolerance and his wish for a multicultural Finland.
Deciding to end his last shift in style, twenty-something Helsinki train conductor Sameli Muurimäki seized his last chance for a soapbox on Sunday evening. Racism was in the firing line for the community-minded rail worker, who passengers say has a penchant for adding greetings and well-wishes to his announcements.
Journalists Riikka Porttila and Vesa Marttinen managed to get hold of a recording of the tail end of Muurimäki’s speech, which they played on Yle’s early Monday morning radio broadcast.
“I think that racism springs from experiences of marginalisation, unemployment, loneliness and false facts. If there’s anything we should be fighting against, it is these [social phenomena],” Muurimäki said
(And like the school turning children against parents for not cutting CO2 emissions or not being Y2K compliant enough or for eating steak which opens up the ozone hole, the socialist state empowers the weak against the strong so long as their mission is the socialist narrative. More at Tundra Tabloids)
(And yet socialism is so wonderful that the people would vote for it every time no matter who was running against it. It seems so odd that in every case, socialist states prevent opposition leaders from accessing the process or outright murder them. Go figure)
CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — Venezuelan election officials rejected a high-profile opposition leader’s attempt to register as a candidate Monday for upcoming congressional elections.
Former congresswoman Maria Corina Machado announced that the National Elections Council had rejected her attempt to register to run in the Dec. 6 elections and called it a grotesque violation of her rights.
Machado is among the hard-line leaders who called for President Nicolas Maduro to resign last year and helped lead sometimes bloody street protests demanding an end to the South American country’s socialist administration. The ruling party stripped her of her congressional seat amid the protests.
HAIFA, Israel – One year after Israel’s vaunted Iron Dome defense system helped protect citizens from a rocket barrage launched from Gaza, the Jewish State has deployed the shield to the north, likely amid fears Lebanon-based Hezbollah could get an infusion of cash and weapons from Iran.
In an exclusive interview with FoxNews.com, Col. Yoni Saada Marom, commander of Israel’s Active Defense Air Wing, said that the military drills were not a direct reaction to recent events, but made clear that Hezbollah and other terror organizations close to Israel’s borders presented a potentially heightened threat.
I also erred when referring to Qatar as beholden to Washington. In fact, Qatar is in bed with the Muslim Brotherhood and is one of the biggest supporters of global jihad in the world — and Clinton, who approved the sales of arms to Qatar expecting them to make their way to Syrian and Libyan rebels, as they did, knew that. She and her State Department caused American arms to come into the possession of known Al Qaeda operatives, a few of whom assassinated U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens.
When Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., asked Clinton in January 2013 at a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing whether she knew of any weapons coming from the U.S. and going to rebels in the Middle East, she denied such knowledge. She either has a memory so faulty that she should not be entrusted with any governmental powers, or she knowingly lied.
It gets worse.
9. PEGIDA in Leipzig Germany
Close to 400 LEGIDA and PEGIDA supporters marched through the streets of Leipzig, Monday, to protest against the German government and to demand that no more refugees and asylum seekers be allowed to enter the country. Nearly 800 counter-protesters followed the march chanting against the LEGIDA and PEGIDA supporters.
Thank you M., Richard, JU., actually quite a long list and Sassy, who just sent in a translation of a video from France that should prove to be quite informative and entertaining, and which I hope to have done shortly.
