Former East German Bag Lady: F U, We Got This.

It took Donald Trump's typical bluntness to finally get the message across that the Europeans are responsible for the mess of their own making. Germany in particular has coasted under the American nuclear umbrella for decades, allowing it to concentrate entirely on rebuilding its domestic economy, infrastructure and social welfare state, and thumb its nose at American warmongering imperialism. It's present dangers are self inflicted, not now the Russians, but their failure to deal with muslim invaders who threaten the existence of all Western Europe. 

It's one of the least attractive aspects of the German character; the gratitude that the immediate postwar generation felt for our having rescued them from Hitler and the love Germans felt for all things American have vanished. 

In their place has come a churlish, we-can-take-it-from-here mutter that does not become them. 
"The times in which we could completely depend on others are on the way out. I’ve experienced that in the last few days. We Europeans truly have to take our fate into our own hands because it can no longer rely on the U.S. as a loyal ally."- Chancellor Angela Merkel. 
Because things always go great in Europe when Germany goes it alone …

John Kerry Cringes at GOP’s Perception Overseas

Our Honorable Doofus of State

Secretary of State John Kerry said on national television the Republican Party is an embarrassment to the United States because of the recent rhetoric that’s hailing from the GOP presidential campaign trail.  He mentioned specifically in an appearance on CBS's “Face the Nation” that the talk among some Republicans about barring Muslim entry into the country, or policing Muslim-dominated neighborhoods in America, or waterboarding those captured by U.S. intelligence officials, are all proving "an embarrassment to our country. It' upsets people's sense of equilibrium about our steadiness, about our reliability."
"Everywhere I go, every leader I meet, they ask about what is happening in America. They cannot believe it. I think it is fair to say that they're shocked. They don't know where it’s taking the United States of America."
Kerry, who also defended President Obama’s stay in Latin America both during and after the Brussels terrorism attack, a decision that sparked criticism from many in the Republican camp and among the media, for the public relations message it sent, then said the optics of the GOP campaign don’t look good on the international stage.

Seeing Mr. Kerry has spent most of his tenure dealing making concessions to our enemies, and his predecessor did much else but sip cocktails with world leaders while the Middle East fell into chaos, rather then projecting the power of the United States, we can only believe the "Leaders" he speaks of believe the U.S. is not as "Enlightened" as them. And our enemies see us as weak.

Yes Mr. Kerry, you and your predecessor over the last 7 years have projected nothing but weakness in negotiations and actions, and set the bar so low that when Mr. Trump and Mr. Cruz speak from a position of strength and power in domestic and foreign affairs, it's hard for foreign governments to believe, and it's scares it should.

Friday the 13th May Change France More Than September 11th Changed America

The attacks in Paris could lead to the rise of
anti-immigrant leader Marie Le Pen

By Taylor Dinerman
In spite of Islamic terrorists killing nearly 3000 Americans on September 11th 2001, the essential two party nature of the US political system remained the same. Fourteen years after the Twin Towers fell Republicans are still Republicans and Democrats are still Democrats. It is an open question whether the French political landscape will be the same after the Friday the 13th attacks.
The rise of the nationalist, anti-immigrant ‘Front National’ (FN) which has been slowly building in France since the mid-1980s, cut the guts out of the old left/right system wherein the Socialist left and its allies including the Communists and the Greens, alternated with the Gaullists and the rest of the Center Right. 
In 2002, the French political establishment was shocked when Jean Marie Le Pen, head of the FN beat the Socialist candidate for second place in the French Presidential election. He was decisively defeated in the second round of voting by an alliance of the Gaullists and the left, but the very fact that a man who’d been branded a fascist and a racist had won so many votes left the French establishment deeply shaken.
Since then the FN, which is now lead by Le Pen’s daughter Marine has gone from strength to strength. Yet it still has been unable to gain a foothold in France’s parliament.  Meanwhile the Socialists lead by President Francois Hollande have seen their share of votes collapse. Ex-President Sarkozy’s party, formerly called the MPR and recently renamed “Les Republicans” did well in the departmental elections, but in the total share of the vote in the first round, came in second to the FN.
The great question now is, will the attack on Paris propel the FN into power or will the government’s response to ISIL’s atrocity be strong enough to prevent French voters from flocking to Ms. Le Pen? So far the signs do not bode well for President Hollande who is trying to avoid overreacting'
 Could President Hollande do anything in the next few weeks that could short circuit the rise of the FN? He probably will order an increase in police and security forces activities on France’s borders and elsewhere, but will he find a real way to ‘mercilessly’ bring France’s striking power to bear on ISIL? Will he demand a significant increase in France’s defense budget? Will he invoke Article 5 of the NATO treaty, the article that says that an attack on one will be considered an attack on all ?

A Little Private Slice of Heaven for Lesbians

If the United States wishes to be truly progressive – we must look to Europe. Yes, Europe will show us the way to true utopian socialism where gas is $10 a gallon and everything that isn't or is nailed down is taxed. They can show us how to be more accepting of Islamic culture so that our cities can be overrun with those of the Muslim faith; where whole swaths of once great European metropolises follow Sharia law and become infidel no-go zones. 
Yes, for all these reasons, we must look across the pond to countries like Germany, where over a century ago, good academic progressives in America learned their craft – fashioning the grand collective.
But wait… there's more, that is, if we wish to achieve true politically correct enlightenment.
The AP reported  that, "A new burial area for lesbians only is being inaugurated in a two century old cemetery in the German capital, Berlin, this weekend." 
The 400 square meter area will be cordoned off in a Lutheran cemetery that was established in 1814. The site will be reserved for up to 80 lesbians. If you're the 81st – I guess it's better luck next time. I guess you'll just have to suffer an eternity with us homophobic heterosexuals.
Usah Zachau is a spokeswoman for the Safia Association, an organization for elderly lesbians.  She said the burial ground will be a space "where the lesbian community can live together in the afterlife."
Yes, Usah, that's how it works. God has a community set aside for 80 lesbians. In exchange for landscaping and upkeep, the group was given use of the 4300 square foot area for 30 years. What happens after that? Well, the report doesn't say.
Do the Lutherans come dig them up and haul them away? Or, do they desecrate the site by burying heterosexuals in unused plots?
So I guess the logical question to ask from this absurdity is – how long until an LGBT group here in the United States demands the right to their own cemetery. Notice I said, "demand" and not ask or negotiate with a cemetery organization. These groups don't ask for anything. They demand – we comply.
And how long will it be before some wacked-out Democrat politician claims it to be a civil right to have separate gay cemeteries?
Not too long I'd imagine.

Another Beheading in England

by Dale Hurd of CBN News

Lancashire, England - A 20-year-old British man has been arraigned in the murder and decapitation June 4th of an 18-year old Sheffield, England woman named Reema Ramazan.

Haven't heard of it? Up until a few days ago,
Ramzan was "just" a stabbing fatality. Now we learn that Aras Hussein cut off her head. It was the second beheading involving a British Muslim in a little over two weeks, after the murder and decapitation of British soldier Lee Rigby, May 22.

This apparent cover up is an example of what has been a massive, orchestrated disinformation campaign by British authorities and their allies in the media to blackout or minimize, and in many cases refuse to prosecute, Muslim crimes. I've come to northern England to investigate how authorities covered up the
Muslim sex grooming gang epidemic, in which white British girls are made the sex slaves of what the authorities euphemistically call "Asian" gangs (they're Muslim). Astonishingly, police are still not tackling the problem head-on, and still more girls will have their lives ruined because of it.

The media is also
failing to report the depth and breadth of the public fury here over the Rigby murder. If those demonstrations were about some loony left-wing cause, you'd see them splashed across every TV screen.

Some argue that the British police are in chains to their politically correct bosses in government. No doubt. I think they also fear civil war. But trying to cover up an Islamic crime wave and the anger that is now seething among the native English doesn't prevent civil war; it brings it. Just sayin'.


The Brits are scared shitless over their muslim invaders, and are just hastening the day their necks are bent for the sword. - DS

The Devil at the G8: Nobody Slammed the Door in His Face

By Judi McLeod - CFP
It was pure Saul Alinsky when President Barack Obama went after Catholic schools in a G8 speech in Northern Ireland on Monday. In front of a captive audience of about 2,000 young people—his signature audience that leaves out adults—Obama claimed that Catholic education divides people and blocks peace, according to the Scottish Catholic Observer.

“If towns remain divided—if Catholics have their schools and buildings and Protestants have theirs, if we can’t see ourselves in one another and fear or resentment are allowed to harden—that too encourages division and discourages cooperation.”  
Spoken like the true son of the Satan-Alinsky cult.
Divisive words from a politician on ground where epic battles between Catholics and Protestants claimed so many lives. This from a politician who has ignored the division and slaughter from madrases and mosques so studiously that there are many who suspect him of being Muslim.
The silence from Obama’s Catholic pals like Cardinal Timothy Dolan, after his statement in Ireland geared to shut down Catholic schools, is downright deafening.
In Ireland, ‘Obama Son of Alinsky’ dropped the mask to show his Marxist roots. Taking mega money from the Catholic Church to jumpstart a career that would take him all the way to the White House and now seeking to shut the schools of the same church that got him there is the real Obama story.
Meanwhile, the devil came to the G8 in Ireland and no one slammed the door in his face.

The Iron Lady Shall Live On

"She has the mouth of Marilyn Monroe and the eyes of Caligula."
President Mitterand of France

Hollywood is not known for sympathetic portrayals of political figures, often injecting rumored or unproven incidents and fictional conversations. So when a left-wing Hollywood star sets aside her dignity to portray a right-wing heroine, odds are the result will irritate everyone. But surprisingly, 'The Iron Lady' is far better than I ever expected, particularly given that virtually the entire entertainment community from the east coast to Hollywood is liberal, a bias gleefully acknowledged by Meryl Streep, who gives an convincing performance as three-term British prime minister Margaret Thatcher. “I'm an actor and, you know, politically we're all on the other side.”

When Margaret Thatcher was first elected to Parliament in 1959, she entered a House of Commons that had 630 members, of whom 25 were female, which is about 24 more women than you would think were ever in any House of Commons during her political life should you see The Iron Lady. The filmmakers have resolved whatever dilemma they had with Mrs.Thatcher as heroine by presenting her life as a feminist struggle. There are no other visible female members of Parliament, only a sea of men. Being female was a liability, although class was the greater obstacle for Thatcher. She was so very lower middle class, a grocer's daughter who never quite lost her regional accent, never mind her chemistry degree from Oxford and her successful studies as a tax lawyer.

The framework of the film is Mrs. Thatcher in her declining years. She appears to have multi-infarct dementia, a decline of memory and intellectual faculties caused by tiny strokes, and believes her husband Denis to still be alive. One of history's ironic gifts to the left is that their greatest opponents, Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher, both after leaving office suffered from a mental disease. Nothing in the film tries to derive any advantage from this, but the choice to play out her extraordinary life over three days of this decline, after she had ceased to be a public player, is telling when you consider other legitimate angles that might have been chosen.

The year before Thatcher became prime minister, the country was in chaos, the dead unburied, doctors on strike, no bread one day, no newspapers the next. Thatcher reshaped society with secret strike votes for unions, privatized industry (except for the health service and the BBC) and lower taxes, which under the Labor Party could be as high as 98 per cent. She stood her ground and never flinched. Thus her great quote that doesn't make the film: “To those waiting with bated breath for that favourite media catchphrase, the U-turn, I have only this to say, ‘You turn if you want; the lady's not for turning. 

The film gives a moving glimpse of Thatcher's middle-England pillow-plumping kindness as she worries about Denis. She was the Iron Lady in power suits and evening gowns, even as she played a pivotal role in defeating Communism. But she remains more: a kind woman who forever overlooked the cruelty of her own children toward her and the cruelty of the world's caricatures. Now in her final years, she concentrates on small acts of kindness, real or imaginary.
