1, More post election sinus clearing
(I think thats what the hipsters call a “mic drop”)
2. And even more.
(Despite hours and hours on the phone suffering massive abuse at the hands of Microsoft ‘go ahead and call your lawyers MS I also record my business calls’, each day Donald Trumps words and actions bring more peace to the heart of the classical liberal.)
3. Guest post by NorseRadish. A regular and witty commenter at Vlad. I haven’t read it yet myself, but if Xanthippa’s blog posted it, its good enough for Vlad.
The ultra-conservative Muslim group around German Salafist convert Sven Lau sparked public outrage with their vigilante patrols in the western city of Wuppertal in 2014, but prosecutors have struggled to build a case against them.
The city’s district court ruled that the seven accused members of the group did not breach a ban on political uniforms when they approached people while wearing orange vests bearing the words “Sharia Police”.
Judges said there could only be a violation of the law – originally aimed against street movements such as the early Nazi party – if the uniforms were “suggestively militant or intimidating”, a court spokesman said.

There has been a steep jump in the number of criminal incidents involving asylum seekers over the past few years, according to preliminary data from the Austrian interior ministry.
The figures vary by nationality. According to the statistics, released by the Federal Ministry of the Interior after a request from Rupert Doppler of the right-wing FPO party, Syrians are relatively unlikely to come into contact with law enforcement, while Afghans, Nigerians and Moroccans are far more likely.
(Is it possible that the jump in crime could conceivably be connected to increased muslim immigration levels? More importantly, would it be legal to compile those numbers and publish them if there is a positive correlation?)
Thank you NorseRadish, M., Wrath of Khan, Kathy, Xanthippa, and a host of others who I don’t know who they are as my email client currently only says: “WordPress” instead of saying who its from. Hence the Nightmare on email Street which defines my day.
