President Donald Trump said last month he would cut the number of U.S. troops in Germany by 9,500 to 25,000, faulting the fellow NATO member for failing to meet the North Atlantic alliance’s defence spending target and accusing it of taking advantage of America on trade.
The American economy is propping up the European one, which allows the silly Europeans to spend all their money on socialist-style entitlements. As Trump forces them to pick up the mantle, those nice cradle-to-grave benefits — already in danger because they cannot afford the retirement payouts to Baby Boomers — are going to go away. Europe will have to find a new path other than cruising on the past, being a tourist destination, and buying votes with free stuff that no one can really afford.
“He had agents who captured slaves from different places and brought them to him,” my father told me.
Nwaubani Ogogo lived in a time when the fittest survived and the bravest excelled. The concept of “all men are created equal” was completely alien to traditional religion and law in his society.
It would be unfair to judge a 19th Century man by 21st Century principles.
Maybe “21st Century principles” are just nonsense and the ancient world had it right: some are born to kings, and some slaves. The mistake was in selling slaves between racial groups. Had we stuck to merely enslaving the Irish, slavery would still be legal.
“It depends on who you’re talking about, when you’re talking about,” Trump responded. “When people proudly had their Confederate flags they’re not talking about racism. They love their flag, it represents the South. They like the South … I say it’s freedom of many things, but it’s freedom of speech.”
The Left deals in symbolic acts, not reality; reality is nuanced, where the Left exists in a perfect present tense and two dimensions only. Like laboratory results, this misses all of the complexity of reality and creates a false, knee-jerk reaction to obvious aspects of our world. The Confederate Flag represents a number of things, including Southern Independence and dislike of diversity. However, apartheid, segregation, and slavery do not work so well either because those, too, are forms of diversity, and all diversity is bad no matter which groups are involved (i.e. no point blaming Whites, Blacks, or Jews for what is obviously a structural defect to diversity itself).
Last Sunday, I recounted that Bertha Levy Ochs, the mother of Times patriarch Adolph S. Ochs, supported the South and slavery. She was caught smuggling medicine to Confederates in a baby carriage and her brother Oscar joined the rebel army.
I have since learned that, according to a family history, Oscar Levy fought alongside two Mississippi cousins, meaning at least three members of Bertha’s family fought for secession.
Levy was Jewish, making him the rarest of entities: the non-white Confederate. Then again, many people realized that the Anglo-American South brought prosperity, while poor whites and diversity did not.
White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows said Sunday that it’s “time for people to go to jail” as part of U.S. Attorney John Durham’s probe into FBI misconduct — prompting ex-Trump aide George Papadopoulos to sound a celebratory note on Twitter.
The comments came as Fox News learned this weekend that Jennifer Boone, a senior FBI official who oversaw the flawed probe into former Trump adviser Carter Page, has received a major promotion to lead a field office — and the bureau won’t say why.
One way to end the Deep State: jail enough of them that the rest flee to safer waters in private industry.
Ostensibly, prosecutors are taking issue with the book’s cover, arguing that the image — a tiger sporting Sweden’s national colors of blue and yellow — infringes on the copyright of a war-time propaganda campaign, now owned by a museum.
In fact, the Swedish campaign very much resembled the “careless talk costs lives” and the “loose lips sink ships” posters seen in Britain and the United States during the war.
Why are there even Jews in Sweden? Israel is the Jewish homeland. Sweden is the Swedish homeland.
A “one-size-fits-all” approach to lockdown may not have been as effective in black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) communities, scientists claim.
A study of Covid-19 in Leicester found cases continued to rise in BAME groups in the city in the three weeks that followed the 23 March lockdown.
In contrast, rates in white groups “dropped off very sharply”.
One-size-fits-all does not work for coronavirus; we wonder what else it works poorly for? Right, civilization. Diversity fails, but mono-ethnic societies are happier.
Workers who were digging the foundation of a house discovered the ancient relic said to be from the Gandhara civilisation. Calling the idol “unIslamic”, the men smashed the statue into pieces.
A video of the incident that has gone viral on social media shows the construction workers destroying the idol using a sledgehammer and expressing their resentment towards it.
Humanity faces a crisis: most of us are morons. This has little to do with Islam, and everything to do with the grim fact that the average person has terrible analytical skills and will unerringly make the wrong decision every time, unless advised and oppressed by people with higher IQ and better moral standards.
The footage purportedly shows dozens of Uyghur men — their heads freshly shaved —blindfolded with their hands tied behind their backs during a mass transfer at a train station in the north-west region of China.
Who cares? China is trying to lure us into an ideological conflict with them when really what we want to do is entirely decouple from them and let their system collapse from within. If we let them provoke us into war, we have to exterminate them, otherwise the future generations, who we will have given a cause for anger through the last ideological war, will continue the war much as WW2 grew out of WW1. China hopes to provoke us into strengthening our own diversity program and therefore weakening ourselves, when in fact we want to drop both globalism and diversity at the same time and go our own way.
The letter allegedly scolded Bradley for lowering “the value of your neighbor’s property” by placing Black Lives Matter signs on her lawn and “embarrassing yourself and family in front of a good community.”
Dr. Erin Tracy Bradley sounds like a Christine Blasey Ford style lunatic and this “hate crime” is an obvious forgery.
In groups with a subordinate male as demonstrator, fish quickly came to a consensus about which light to follow, moving together as a coherent unit to succeed in the task. With a dominant male as the informant, groups were far slower to reach consensus, if they did at all.
This study misreads its results. People who are obviously in power provoke a reaction of deference because each individual attempts to figure out how to respond to the authority, not the question at hand. Seems like it argues for anarchy, but in fact, it argues for a clearer hierarchy where authority need not demonstrate itself in order to be understood. A monarchy would fit that bill.
The State Department has released a 2018 diplomatic cable noting that the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) had “a serious shortage of appropriately trained technicians and investigators needed to safely operate this high-containment laboratory.”
Although Pompeo still speaks out forcefully against the Chinese government for its role in failing to stem the pandemic outbreak and a lack of transparency, the secretary recently seemed to back away from the theory the virus originated in a lab. In an interview in mid-May, he conceded, “We know it began in Wuhan, but we don’t know from where or from whom, and those are important things.”
Here is the sleight-of-hand: the press wants you to think that for this virus to have come from a Wuhan laboratory, it had to be invented there. In fact, many biological warfare laboratories stockpile dangerous diseases to use as templates, and sometimes those mutate into deadlier forms which can be accidentally released by slack staff.

If we collect all six, do we get a gift certificate from Amazon?
But in the last week, the dynamics have changed: Federal officers have become prominent players in the nightly protests, severely injuring at least one protester and using alarming tactics including detaining protesters in unmarked vehicles.
And questions have been raised about how closely federal law enforcement and local police are working together. In a statement Saturday afternoon, Hardesty said she believed the two forces were collaborating.
The optics game unravels. Wheeler wants to keep the appearance of a nice happy liberal city, but cut down on the professional troublemakers who are burning down his city. This situation could easily be solved if armed private citizens took to the streets and the police looked away for a few hours. After the carnage, the bodies would be hidden, and life would return to normal. Humans are yeast, and riots and ensuing violence form one of the methods of population control and quality assurance that we use on ourselves.
Climate change and the loss of natural habitats due to urban development play a large part in the sharp decline of pollination sources for the buzzing insects, according to a new report that analyzed more than 100 years of data related to bees. Other factors include chemical insecticides, parasites and geographical displacement.
“Loss of natural habitats due to urban development” sounds like the easiest thing to fix. Bees need massive open fields of flowers; when humans take that land for their midrise condominiums, fast food restaurants, barnlike daycare schools, robotic factories, and endless consumer sales storefronts, bees do not have the space they need to survive. Burn a city, save the bees.
Mexico’s top security official has said authorities are investigating a video which showed dozens of uniformed troops with military-grade weapons and armoured pickup trucks apparently connected to a major drug cartel.
As democracy fades away, the warlords return. What can we say but that democracy has failed? Formalize the situation and put the druglords on the ballot. If this bothers Americans, they can stop taking so many drugs or grow their own.
On Wednesday, crews began digging up the chain-link fence that was 1,280 feet long, separating City Cemetery, which held the graves of Black people, from Cedars Memorial Garden, which held graves of white people.
The project was completed Friday evening, St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church pastor Demethrius Boyd told NBC News in a phone interview Saturday.
“The symbolism that it represents is far beyond the year that we are now in in race relations,” said Boyd, who is Black, “and the perspective that it gives off is far beyond the time that we need to make sure that we promote things that are more positive in nature.”
Diversity starts with feelgood stuff that the crowd likes, such as tearing down fences and rules. It ends in genocide. Maybe we should just stop now so we do not get to that point.
A highly effective way to reduce biodiversity losses in agricultural regions is to increase the amount of natural and semi-natural habitats such as forests, hedgerows, prairie strips and other non-crop areas.
Small fields can help. Farmers can maintain or increase biodiversity in agricultural landscapes by planting their crops in smaller fields.
My colleagues and I have found remarkably consistent increases in biodiversity with decreasing average field size, across eight very different agricultural regions in five countries — and for a wide array of wildlife types.
The more you have areas that are not unbroken fields, the more there are spaces for natural flora and fauna to survive. It turns out that the “inefficient” methods of the past were in fact better.
Authorities are investigating a number of instances in which Black Lives Matter signs were stolen or damaged in Roseville. But police became even more concerned when someone nailed a raccoon up to a post near one of those signs.
Social status signaling Whites are shocked to find that not everyone agrees that we should all die out from diversity.
Sudan’s decision to lift the death penalty and flogging as punishment for gay sex was hailed by LGBT+ activists on Thursday as a promising sign after almost four decades of Islamist rule, with calls for prison sentences to be abolished as well.
Old school conservatives favored an eccentricity-tolerant approach that we might call “Don’t Ask, Don’t Articulate” (DADA) where you just did not mention the sexual preferences of other people, at least in public. This meant that people could be quietly gay and face no penalties, but that society did not have worry about a 2% minority when it designed its aesthetics, imagery, and behaviors, knowing that these need to focus on the chaste heterosexual nuclear family in order to be healthy. Original conservatives were highly tolerant of a range of behaviors as long as those had no impact on society at large, and would have found our Gay Pride parades just as distasteful as the numerous gay bashers and “homophobes” who seem to crop up in response.
The calls come as Boris Johnson prepares to unveil a “war on obesity”, after weight was identified as a major factor in deaths from Covid-19. In England, 64% of adults are overweight or obese and Johnson has said his time in intensive care after contracting the virus – when he weighed more than 17 stone – has changed his “libertarian” views on food and obesity.
The more we use government, the weaker culture becomes. No one points out that the reason people are obese is that they no longer do much walking, mainly because diverse societies are ugly places to experience and so people stay home and watch junk television on streaming services.
Stone was silent, then it sounded like he was either away from the phone or covering it up when he said, “I don’t really feel like arguing with this negro.”
Is “negro” a racial slur? Would it have been better if he had said “I don’t really feel like arguing with this Black fellow”? Diversity has run its course and the resentment is boiling over.
Juan Carlos seemed set to go down in history as the leader who skilfully guided Spain from dictatorship to democracy after the death of Gen Francisco Franco in 1975, but the 82 year-old’s private financial activities have prompted two court inquiries in Switzerland and Spain.
Prosecutor Yves Bertossa’s ongoing inquiry centres on a $100m (£80m) gift to Juan Carlos from the king of Saudi Arabia in 2008, and whether it was in connection with the awarding of a €6.7bn contract for a Spanish consortium to build a high-speed railway from Medina to Mecca three years later.
Mr Bertossa has discovered the existence of two offshore funds, connected to Swiss bank accounts.
Democracy decided to tax wealthy people, so they moved their money elsewhere. This one just gets in the news because it is an aristocrat, even if one foolish enough to adopt democracy.
Lead author on the study, University of Auckland public health physician, Dr Simon Thornley, said the biggest surprise was the strong link between refined starches and dental decay.
“This should inform our oral health promotion work in this country because many people would not be aware that frequently consuming foods such as white bread, rice and noodles could put children at greater risk of dental caries [cavities],” he says.
Foods that convert quickly to sugar cause tooth decay. This should not be some sort of shocking revelation, except that we have built our new prole regime on cheap food based in similar carbohydrates. Our diet of a century ago, with an emphasis on meat, vegetables, and rough-ground grains such as barley, provided better dental health and many other forms of health as well, but it would cost a family a couple thousand a month to live that way today.
Nicholas II, his German-born wife Alexandra Feodorovna, and their five children, Anastasia, Maria, Tatiana, Olga and Alexei, were executed by the Bolsheviks in 1918 in the midst of the Russian Revolution.
When you think of the Left, think of guillotines, Red Guards, gulags, secret police, and the murder of whole families. This is what they stand for, especially the moderates, who are cagey enough to wait for power to come their way before they unleash their inner desire for destruction. To these people, destruction is the only power they will have, since they are mentally and morally disordered and therefore will never have power over themselves.
“The nations that came out on top more than seven decades ago have refused to contemplate the reforms needed to change power relations in international institutions,” Guterres said. “The composition and voting rights in the United Nations Security Council and the boards of the Bretton Woods system are a case in point.”
Concerns about equality belong to the Left. There is no obligation to care. If your system rewards good people, those at the top will be good. Leftist systems reward manipulative and vicious people. This is another case where “replace Leftism, problem solved” is closer than anything else to the most viable working solution.
The memorial in question, which is in a private cemetery, is meant to commemorate the 1st Ukrainian Division of the Ukrainian National Army, which was first known as the Waffen-SS “Galicia” Division.
The unit was created by Nazi Germany from mostly Ukrainian volunteers in 1943 and 1944, according to a study. Its involvement in war crimes is still debated today.
On Twitter, Chief Steve Tanner agreed with a post calling for the monument to be removed.
Poor police took one look at this and figured it was a crime against a minority ethnic group, therefore was a hate crime. It turns out that hate crimes only protect those on the Left. In other news, it turns out that the Nazis did not hate Slavs as much as has been reported.
“Damn them!” His tightly clenched fist bounced an insistent beat on the table’s top. “Damn them! So, my people came off the boat, and it weren’t no Mayflower! So what? Damn them!” He’d been happy as a clam, out of doors, fine-tuning the hedges, but now everything was ruined, his gay mood soured. Later that evening, watching TV, he could barely focus on the plot of Perry Mason. The next morning, he skipped mass at St. Sebastian’s, again. Since the divorce, he was persona non grata, anyway. To hell with them and that pansy padre’s droning sermons. Instead, wheels turned, plots hatched. He’d settle the Kaiser’s hash.
Interesting how the clash between near-Whites (mixed populations from Southern, Irish, and Eastern Europe) and actual Whites come out in this satire of our failing democracy.
Once upon a time, America’s political elite, whose politics diverged on many issues, wholeheartedly agreed on one single foreign policy matter: their country’s blind and unconditional love and support for Israel. In those days, the influential pro-Israel lobby group, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) ruled the roost, reigning supreme in the US Congress and, almost single-handedly, decided on the fate of Congressmen and women based on their support, or lack thereof, of Israel.
While it is too early to proclaim that ‘those days are over,’ judging by the vastly changing political discourse on Palestine and Israel, the many opinion polls, and the electoral successes of anti-Israeli occupation candidates in national and local elections, one is compelled to say that AIPAC’s tight grip on US foreign policy is finally loosening.
Again, anti-Jewish people: Leftism intends to eliminate Jews. Hitler wanted Jews gone from Europe; the Left wants to destroy them in their homeland and outbreed them elsewhere, sort of like the Soviets tried to do.
Defense Secretary Mark Esper invoked the Seventh Trumpet protocol by which United States government figures communicate directly with the population over radio, television, and internet channels simultaneously to announce that, after the discovery of a “White Lives Matter” banner in Minneapolis, the city was erased by a nuclear explosion.
How does one even write satire in a time when the headlines read like punchlines?
