    • Africans kill elderly white man then start screaming about racism

      As usual, the savages get it all bass-ackwards.

      FIRST you “start screaming about racism”, THEN you kill the “elderly white man”.

      Too bad there’s no electric chair so some executioner can get the current flow wrong.

  1. Bring Down Leftist Foundations Like the Mafia
    Prosecute Soros and Ford for funding leftist violence.

    The Department of Justice has been investigating DisruptJ20, a “resistance” group that plotted to shut down President Trump’s inauguration. The DOJ has demanded the IP addresses of visitors, along with any emails, photos and names it can get. But the pipeline of Dj20 funding goes back to George Soros.

    And not just Soros.

    Money from the Global Justice Alliance went to Refuse Fascism, a group founded by members of the Revolutionary Communist Party, which staged violent protests. “Respectable” big money leftist groups like the Hill Snowdon Foundation and Ben and Jerry’s Foundation fund middlemen like the Alliance. And then the Alliance funds “direct action” groups that are willing to get their hands violently dirty.

    The DOJ, better than anyone, should understand this model. It’s commonplace among criminals.

    And when you go after criminals, you don’t stop with the street thugs. Instead you go after the bosses. The left’s funding pipelines launder money by moving it from respectable foundations to increasingly radical groups until they reach the thugs that mace, club and set fires. The multiple tiers buy their donors respectability and plausible deniability. But it’s nothing that the DOJ can’t easily penetrate.

  2. Conservatives Are The Real Thought Police Squashing Calls for White Genocide

    You might have thought that the thought police on campus are leftists who phone in bomb threats, assault speakers and set buildings on fire. But please allow George Ciccariello-Maher to correct you.

    George Ciccariello-Maher / Washington Post: – “Conservatives are the real campus thought police squashing academic freedom.”

    How did evil conservative speech cops victimize this poor academic? Who indeed is George Ciccariello-Maher?

    An admitted “actual communist,” the radical political theorist tweeted on Christmas Eve evening “All I Want for Christmas is White Genocide.”

  3. Deadline’s Matt Damon Puff Piece Shows Harvey Weinstein’s Tactics Are the Norm
    October 11, 2017

    Sharon Waxman, a former New York Timeser, wrote a piece pointing out that the Times had the story on Harvey in ’04 and killed it. She mentioned that Harvey Weinstein’s pressure campaign had included, “having Matt Damon and Russell Crowe call me directly to vouch for Lombardo ”

    The New York Times denied everything. And Deadline ran an “interview” with Matt Damon featuring a variety of softball questions and constant mentions that Matt is the “father of four daughters.”

    The Deadline post doesn’t link to Waxman’s article, but does link to a Times attack on her. It throws a few smears around. And reads like a press release.

    Here’s an actual exchange.

  4. Soros Funded Group Will Fight to “Remove Trump from Power”
    October 11, 2017
    Daniel Greenfield

    I know George is a little behind the times, but we do have elections in this country. And nobody elected him and the Communist goons playing at being the “resistance”.

    A front group for the Revolutionary Communist Party USA has declared November 4, 2017, as the day their revolution to depose the “fascist Trump/Pence regime” begins. Soros-funded “Refuse Fascism” is calling on leftists across the nation to take to the streets and declare that the Trump presidency is “illegitimate.”

    Here’s part of their press release…

  5. Gun Control: Another Progressive Power Grab
    When control costs human freedom.
    October 11, 2017
    Bruce Thornton The reaction after every mass shooting follows a predictable script written by progressives to serve their political agenda. No claim about the efficacy of gun control, no matter how many times repudiated by facts, can stop the Dems and their media spaniels from ritually invoking it to demonize conservatives.

    Why should we be surprised? By now it should be clear that the “party of science” is interested not in truth and evidence, but in ideology and partisan advantage. Yet those with common sense and an awareness of the facts still have to restate the obvious, even though it will make no difference to partisans either ignorant of or indifferent to any reality that doesn’t serve their interests. For what is at stake is not just one right, but the foundations of our political freedom in self-evident, God-given rights.

  6. Taboo Truths About the Comanche
    Were Native Americans really kinder, gentler and more spiritual?
    October 11, 2017
    Danusha V. Goska

    I used to, on some level, accept the popular notion that Native Americans were more spiritual and in tune with nature than European Americans, and that it was European Americans who brought war, sexism, and environmental degradation to an otherwise innocent, peaceful and Edenic Native America.

    As a kid I bought slim paperbacks from the Scholastic Book Club that taught me that Native Americans planted dead fish in their agricultural fields in order to fertilize them. I learned that North American Indians didn’t have the wheel, bronze, iron, or steel, or writing. They cooked acorns by dropping hot stones into holes dug in the ground and filled with water. The acorns had to be soaked in advance in order to leech them of toxins. I thought of how cumbersome and time-consuming that cooking method would be, and how bland a meal a soaked acorn would provide.

    In popular culture, Native Americans were the spiritual and natural corrective to modern Americans, who were seen as greedy and divorced from nature. On TV, Iron Eyes Cody witnessed American pollution and a visible tear flowed down his creased and weathered cheek. Of course Iron Eyes Cody was actually Sicilian but hey. The commercial meant well.

    • I used to, on some level, accept the popular notion that Native Americans were more spiritual and in tune with nature than European Americans, and that it was European Americans who brought war, sexism, and environmental degradation to an otherwise innocent, peaceful and Edenic Native America.

      Everyone, please read, “The Frontiersmen“, by Allan W. Eckert (and the follow-on books).

      His meticulously researched and historically accurate stories are the best I’ve seen with respect to any realistic portrayal regarding colonial era settlement of North America by the Europeans.

      Did the Native Americans get screwed, blued, and tattooed? Hell yes! Were these various tribes in near-constant conflict long before the paleface ever arrived? You’d better believe it.

      Sidebar: Odd as it may seem, one principal and totally crippling factor for North America’s original inhabitants was their inability to utilize the wheel. I say “utilize” despite how Mayan and Aztec toys featured wheels on axles. Nevertheless, whatever inability they had to harness (so to speak) this most basic mechanical device was a major factor that inhibited trade, much less actual industrialization of their own accord. Absent these key technological features, newly arrived Europeans—replete with horses and metallic weapons (be they swords or guns)—ran roughshod over the native population.

      At times in lurid detail, Eckert describes both the betrayals and earnest efforts which were made to deal with New World natives.

      What most people do not realize is the unbelievable savagery that Native Americans were—not just capable of but—cheerfully willing to inflict.

      Warning graphic detail: One form of native execution—which was used to dispatch all and sundry (whiteman or redskin alike)—involved lashing the victim to a post and then placing abundant firewood some six or ten feet distant all around that center point. The fuel would be set alight and, once glowing, the coals were very slowly pushed inwards so as to gradually scorch and not-so-gently roast the victim alive, with every intent of prolonging the agony involved.
      The point of this sordid account is ensuring that everyone gets over Jean Jacques Rousseau’s idiotically ludicrous notion of the proverbial, “Noble Savage”. Native Americans (much less those who inhabit Africa and other nether reaches of this planet) have long enjoyed reaping the benefits of such an utterly false caricature for well over a century. To say the least, this preposterous hoax is long overdue for an abrupt and meaningful halt. As Hobbes duly noted about (how), “the life of man [is], solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short.

      The condition of man… is a condition of war of everyone against everyone.”

      The entire imaginary figment of the “Noble Savage”—something that Liberals simply cannot resist in any way, shape, or form—is the biggest load of hooey to come down the pike since phlogiston.

      • “The point of this sordid account is ensuring that everyone gets over Jean Jacques Rousseau’s idiotically ludicrous notion of the proverbial, “Noble Savage”.”

        The excellent book, The Blank Slate, by Stephen Pinker, is, in part, a total and scientific attack on The Noble Savage for the pernicious bullshit it is.

        The movie, The Black Robe, also gives insight on Amer-Indian life before the European.

        • Thank you so much, Eeyore. I would dread to think that there was any interfering breach between us.

          Misplaced Liberal adoration of the “Noble Savage” has perpetuated some of the most dysfunctional and harmfully disingenuous perceptions of all modern times. Additionally, it has (almost continually) enabled some of the most crippling and harmful negative traits or perceptions of (especially) Blacks and other Third World races.

          NO ONE, not Europeans, Africans, Native Americans, or any other aboriginals who rejected—or were immune to—the barbaric violence that characterized so much of early (i.e., prehistoric) expansionism refrained from some of the most horrific slaughter.

          Pretending that this is not the case is some of the worst intellectual dishonesty imaginable (not that this accusation deters many on the Left from indulging in such abject lunacy).

          • The Noble Savage, The Blank Slate, and The Ghost in the Machine, are the primary motivators of contemporary postmodern attacks on Western thought according to Pinker.

            He makes a very strong case.

              • Yes except as applied by postmodernists to destroy actual science and advance postmodernist/Marxist dogma.

                The fellow who told me to get the book, offered to buy it from me if I didn’t feel it was worth every cent. Now i feel like I owe him.

                It was worth much more than it costs.

          • Michael Pollan, author of “The Botany of Desire: A Plant’s-Eye View of the World” and, “Second Nature: A Gardener’s Education”, made the pithy observation that Native Americans were not the “environmental eunuchs” that the Left continually portrays them as.

            Their use of fire ecology and selective plant eradication, not to mention the extinction of all mega-fauna in the Americas is stark testimony to their own oversized ecological footprint (however prehistoric).

            PS: “The Botany of Desire” is well worth reading. In it, he details four plant-forms, apples, tulips, potatoes, and cannabis as examples of relatively common plants whose genetic versatility and nutritional or sensory properties give them an almost irresistible appeal to humans.

            An example: Apple trees that regenerate from random seed stock employ a “genetic shotgun” approach towards environmental adaptation. Literally, every piece of fruit the tree produces contains seeds, each of which have a slightly different adaptive profile. Thus ensuring that at least one (or a few seeds) will be compatible with the new soil mineralogy, rainfall patterns, and other environmental conditions.

            This is why traditional apple orchards are so heavily reliant upon grafting to maintain specific fruit characteristics of size, color, shape, and flavor.

            Everyone reading this should be grateful as hell for the seed libraries and heritage-strain farmers who breed up crops that do not perpetuate America’s dependence on a handful of specific strains like, Red or Golden Delicious, Granny Smith, Rome, or Gravenstein types.

            A single fungus or rust that aggressively attacked these five principal varietals could potentially wipe out a multi-billion dollar agricultural resource. In contrast, the heritage strains typically exhibit far better developed immunity to common plant diseases.

            Read the book and learn more.

      • One of the that weren’t mentioned in the article is how most of the tribes engaged in al cannibalism, eating the heart of a brave enemy to his courage, the arm muscles to gain his strength etc.

  7. Twitter Backtracks After Blocking THIS Rising Star’s Pro-Life Ad

    Twitter backtracks after blocking ‘inflammatory’ Marsha Blackburn ad

    Twitter has decided to change course on a controversial Senate campaign advertisement by Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., and will allow the ad to run, even though the social network initially claimed it violated ad guidelines.

    Blackburn confirmed on Fox News’ “The Story with Martha MacCallum” Tuesday night that Twitter will allow her ad to be promoted on the social media platform.

    Twitter said that they made the decision after reconsidering the “context of the entire message,” according to a report by Recode.

    Blackburn said she believes Twitter reversed its decision because “the American people rose up.”

  8. Hawkins: Good Guy with a Gun Could Have Stopped Stephen Paddock Before Mass Shooting

    Following Sheriff Joe Lombardo’s October 9 announcement that Mandalay Bay security guard Jesus Campos actually discovered Stephen Paddock six minutes before the attack began, it is only natural to wonder if Campos could have stopped the attack–had he been armed.

    But The Daily Beast (TDB) reports that Campos was not armed when he discovered Paddock. Therefore, he was at Paddock’s mercy and ended up shot and wounded.

    The day after the attack, Breitbart News reported Mandalay Bay’s 2012 guidelines for private security, which mandate that guards are banned from carrying “weapons of any kind.” The guidelines define weapons as “guns, knives, nightsticks, mace, pepper spray, stun guns etc.,” all of which are designated as “strictly prohibited on Mandalay Bay property.”

  9. Iran and Turkey: On a Collision Course?

    The governments of Iran and Turkey recently reached an accord on Idlib, a Syrian town now the focus of American interests, which brings relations between two of the largest and most influential states in the Middle East momentarily out of the shadows.

    Their rivalry goes back a half-millennium, included 11 wars, and now remains, in the words of the Washington Institute’s Soner Cagaptay, the region’s “oldest power game.” What does the recent accord signify and how will their competition influence the region’s future?

    Iranian and Turkish parallels are noteworthy. Both countries have populations of 80 million. (Egypt, the region’s third large country, has 96 million.) Both boast ancient civilizations, long imperial histories, tensions with Russia, and a successful avoidance of European colonialism. In modern times, each came under the rule of a ruthless modernizer after World War I, followed more recently by an even more repressive Islamist.

    The current leaders, Iran’s Ali Khamene’i and Turkey’s Recep Tayyip Erdo?an, enjoy near-absolute power and both feverishly try to hide this reality under a large and noisy apparatus of elections, parliaments, cabinets, laws, and NGOs. Both aspire to lead the entire Muslim community, perhaps someday claiming to be caliph.

    • Read the article, it is predicting a clash, possibly a full fledged war between Iran and Turkey, another reason that requires us to insure that Iran doesn’t get nukes.

  10. GOOD RIDDANCE: Sally Jones ‘DEAD’ – White Widow ISIS jihadi ‘zapped in Syria drone strike’ (express, Oct 12, 2017)

    “SALLY Jones, a British Islamic State (ISIS) recruiter known as the ‘White Widow’, is believed to have been killed in Syria.

    The former punk rocker fled the UK for Syria after she fell in love with Junaid Hussain, who became an ISIS fighter in 2013.

    She quickly became a top ISIS recruiter and a major target for security forces.

    Now insiders have claimed Jones was obliterated by a US drone strike last summer.

    She is believed to have been killed near the border of Iraq and Syria as she attempted to flee the country following the all-out destruction of the vile terror group’s so-called caliphate.

    The Sun quoted a Whitehall source as saying: “The Americans zapped her trying to get away from Raqqa. Quite frankly, it’s good riddance.”

    The CIA is believed to have confirmed to UK Government officials the 50-year-old had been killed in a Predator drone strike…”
