France did not perceive it at the time, but it placed itself in a trap, and the trap is now closing.
In the 1970s, the Palestinians began to use international terrorism, and France chose to accept this terrorism so long as France was not affected.
At the same time, France welcomed mass-immigration from the Arab-Muslim world, evidently as part of a Muslim wish to expand Islam.
France's Muslim population has since grown in numbers while failing to assimilate.
Polls show that one-third of French Muslims want the full application of Islamic sharia law. They also show that the overwhelming majority of French Muslims support jihad, and especially jihad against Israel, a country they would like to see erased from the face of earth.
"It is better to leave than flee." -- Sammy Ghozlan, President of the National Bureau of Vigilance against Anti-Semitism. He was later mugged, and his car was torched. He left.
Villiers also mentions the presence in "no-go zones" of thousands of weapons of war. He adds that weapons will probably not even have to be used; the Islamists have already won.
Originally, France's dreams might have been of displacing America as a world power, accessing inexpensive oil, business deals with oil-rich Islamic states, and the prayer of no domestic terrorism.
PARIS — Five men who were arrested on Sunday in France were Islamic State operatives planning an “imminent” attack under the direction of a commander based in the terrorist group’s haven in Iraq and Syria, the authorities announced on Friday.
The news immediately raised worries in France, which has been struck by three major terrorist attacks since January 2015, killing more than 200 people.
The five men, ages 26 to 37, appeared before a special terrorism judge on Friday and were being investigated on terrorist conspiracy and weapons charges, according to the Paris prosecutor, François Molins, whose office handles terrorism cases nationwide.
The five were among seven arrested in Strasbourg and Marseille on Sunday; the other two have since been released.
The arrests came shortly before the popular Christmas market in Strasbourg opened on Friday; the annual tradition attracts 2 million visitors every year.
Four of the suspects were arrested in Strasbourg. They were planning an attack for Dec. 1, Mr. Molins said, while adding that it was not yet clear what their target was “among all those that the group envisaged.”

Trump’s glorious win has rats
scurrying all across Washington D.C.
But, it represents an opportunity rather than a mission accomplished. Cultural
Marxist themes still permeate our culture, telling us that the US is evil and
smashing it is noble. For Trump’s win to have a lasting impact, it must
spearhead a cultural revolution. But,
how can we change our infected culture?
Inclusivity and exclusivity:
To increase our unity, we must counter the multicultural
narrative that the West has no culture into which to assimilate. We must reject the globalist narrative
that all people’s are the same and the West is not special. We are an English speaking, tough,
individualistic, rights / duties, non-socialist prideful, Protestant Christian / Enlightenment-based culture. Our culture is complex. Sometimes it is easier to define by
exclusion, we’re not a Sharia-loving, Confucian, Spanish speaking nation.
Yet, note that this vision is not racially exclusive. People of all races can learn English.
And, our vision not being racist also implies white self-criticism. Our slutty behavior and soaring divorce
rates, based on ‘party values’ have got to be shamed again. As Socrates and Jesus said, the soul is
higher than the body. As
Washington argued, hedonistic louts cannot sustain a republic. We must acknowledge we have a culture
and it has standards to which people of all colors should aspire.
Yet the culturist truth is that assimilation has limits,
sympathy with Sharia law is not compatible with loyalty to western laws. Cultural diversity is real. So we need to take naturalization
loyalty oaths seriously again. Excluding other cultures does not mean we do not
wish them well, it means we love ours enough to protect it. And, again, more fundamentally,
knowing some things are not-Western is the quick route to knowing the West has
a specific culture to take pride in.
Pride in our history on a culturist basis:
To spread this vision, we need to rewrite our schools’
curriculum on a culturist basis; that is, we need to acknowledge the importance
of culture to our history. This
will turn our history from a source of shame to a source of pride. WW II Japanese relocation was not
racist. It was because cultural
diversity can create divisions in loyalty. Manifest destiny was not racist, it was culturist. If Mexicans had populated the South
West, it would be high-birthrate / low-education and poor like Mexico. Our predecessors weren’t
irrational. Our historical success
shows they enacted smart culturist policy.
He who controls the past controls the future. To make America great again, we must
teach that the West has long been great!
As culturist common sense dictates, we must inculcate cultural pride
with culturist curriculum.
But, inculcating pride cannot stop at the schoolyard
gate.We need to have new
patriotic public celebrations and reinvigorate old ones with new pomp.The 4th of July must once
again mean more than getting drunk and blowing things up.We should sing the public anthem at
more events and shame those who don’t.That is not to say we need compulsion.That would run against our mores.But, events promoting pride in the American public are

If you ever wondered what an incomprehensible and poisonous mixture of Islam, feminism and social justice looked like, then click on that link above.
You shouldn’t rely on those who you want to be in allyship with to teach you about their issues or correct your mistakes. But when they do, it’s important to listen, learn, and change your behavior. Don’t challenge personal experiences. Don’t tell someone the “right” way to express their rage.
That's right. So, when an inbred Muslim tells you that he wants to take a truck and plow it through hundreds of infidels, don't go all judgemental on him. Who are you to say that that is the "wrong" way to express rage?
To those who are anti-Trump and want to organize against white supremacy—here are a few other related hashtags to include in your next tweet: #abolishpolice #freepalestine.
If any of those hashtags make you uncomfortable, then the complexities of white supremacy may not be entirely clear.
Yup. That's the common factor between the NY-based former democrat Trump, multiracial US police and Jewish Israel: WHITE SUPREMACY!
Only the only country in the Middle East the USA didn’t screw over: Israel. Not only does the USA not screw over (read: systematically destroy, exploit, humiliate, rape and oppress) Israel like they have Iraq, Afghanistan and others, but they actually massively support Israel and its countless violations of international human rights laws.
Isn't it odd that 1 million Muslim Arabs live in Israel? Why don't they move out to other countries in the Middle East which are famous for their freedoms and steadfast support of human rights? For example, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, United Arab Emirates, etc.
Despite the volumes of evidence about Congressman Keith Ellison’s longstanding record of Israel-bashing and antisemitism, the Anti-Defamation League praised this leading contender for chair of the Democratic National Committee.
Appallingly, ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt took to Twitter to characterize Ellison as an “important ally in the fight against antisemitism” and “on record in support of Israel.”
Last week, ZOA published a release, urging that Ellison not be appointed to head the DNC. Ellison’s dangerous positions, involvements and anti-Israel congressional initiatives have included the following:
This past summer, Ellison (aka Keith X. Ellison, aka Keith Hakim, aka Keith Ellison Muhammed) worked to insert anti-Israel positions and language into the 2016 Democratic national platform, and to keep pro-Israel planks out.
Ellison complained in a DemocracyNow! interview that the Israeli “occupation” was to blame for a “humanitarian crisis” and lack of sewage processing in Gaza – while ignoring that Israel withdrew from every inch of Gaza, and that Hamas diverts the electricity needed to operate Gaza’s sewage treatment plant to energize their terror tunnels and operations.
Also in 2016, Ellison tweeted a sign falsely accusing Israel of expropriation and “apartheid.”
And in September, Ellison defended the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) on the House floor. ISNA is an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation case, involved in funneling money to Hamas.
Anti-terrorist police were searching for a masked gunman overnight after at least one woman, believed to be a nun, was murdered at a home for retired missionary monks in the south of France.
The bloodbath unfolded at the Green Oaks care home in the village of Montferrier-sur-Lez, north of Montpellier, soon after 9.30pm.
Shots were heard as the unidentified intruder attacked member of staff and members of an elderly religious community belonging to the Society of African Missions.
Notice there is no description of the fag who did this.
*** If I am wrong, and this is not a Masked Muslim, but is instead a crazed Buddhist, or Christian, doing this in the name of Buddha or Jesus, then I do humbly apologize for my mistake. And, I should probably be removed from society for my hubris at forming what I believe to be a rational opinion. One must question whether I, as a human being, even have the right to such speech.
How to Talk to Your Pansy Marxist Nephew at Thanksgiving
From the Editor's Blog:
Happy Thanksgiving and thanks for publishing my column. I’m a big fan of this holiday because few things are more American than boozing up and chowing down ’til your ankles swell and your corduroys pop. In between, you get to watch some football and share your thoughts on the trainwreck presidency of Barack Hussein Obama (hint hint).
I consider myself a knowledgable debater because I read up on the blogs and I’m typically one of the most “liked” commenters on the articles.
The reason I’m writing this is because my brother’s dumb kid likes to get chatty with me. I’ve never seen anyone bring so many printouts to the dinner table. His “talking points,” he says. Reminds me of my last divorce, all those friggin’ printouts. This kid, my nephew, will never admit to being a communist, it’s always this “moderate independent” crap.
But his Facebook feed is full of Bernie Sandinista, if you know what I mean, and he recently tweeted some gibberish about riding the bus in Czechoslovakia and identifying as a “human being” instead of what he is, an American.
He’s been a “student” at some Ivy League circlejerk for the better part of a decade. I think he’s 29, who the hell even cares? If he’s the future, this country’s digging its own grave and I’m glad I won’t be there when it finally kicks the bucket.
When I was his age, I was flying Ranger battalions into Grenada in ’83. I spent Thanksgiving there, and believe me, we didn’t have any damn printouts. We had a war, son.
A lot of my buddies have similar situations in their families, and they’re always asking me for advice on how to put up with this left-wing propaganda. Well, I’ll give you a taste.
He’s gonna be all like “you’re just giving ISIS what they want.” I’ll come back at him with something like: “You know, you raise an interesting point there, Brayden.
I’ll tell you what, why don’t you invite one of your ISIS pals around the house and we’ll see how much he likes it when I slash his guts out with the turkey knife. You think that’s what he wants? They want us to crush them?
Tell me something, how did you feel when your Little League team got mercy-ruled by those country boys in the district finals? Is that what you wanted? Were you just phoning it in for the “participant” trophy?
Is that why you’re too afraid to shave that pathetic beard? Because that’s what ISIS wants?
Am I othering you right now? Did I carpet bomb your safe space? Maybe, just maybe, what ISIS really wants is a world with fewer people like me, who’ve looked evil in the eye and given a few titty-twisters in our day, and more people like the skinny jean cycle jockeys you pal around with at Yale, with your ska music and your websites and “fantasy” sports. Maybe what ISIS wants is your dental floss forearms that can barely hold a selfie stick, much less a BAR.
Do those Vox cards have a talking point for that? Oh, really? Because I was under the impression that in A-m-e-r-i-c-a, the proper way to usher in the holiday season is with a stiff Rusty Nail, not a “dialogue” about small pox and genocide, unless you want to share your feelings about the mass murder ISIS wants to bring down on your ass? Is that a topic we can let marinate?
I bet you had to print out the lyrics to our national anthem when you went to sing it in the quad the night we elected President Hopey Change.
No, you listen.
You listen, Brayden.
When’s the last time you got a blister on those hands? Don’t mention the time you tried eating the vegan hotdog at the WNBA game you made me take you to out of “fairness.” You didn’t even watch the game. You just tweeted about sexism on your iPad.
You know, that little computer screen made by Apple, which last I checked was a corporation, Mr. Occupy. Don’t deny it, I was watching you. You only looked up when Taylor Swift came over the PA system. How do you think that made Brittney Griner feel?
Remind me: What’s the name of the union for people who Twitter all day from an air conditioned office? Because I don’t think “amateur food photographer” counts as a real job.”
I plan to say this to the little pansy in a firm but slightly mocking tone as I pour another bourbon while eating processed turkey and holding a lit cigarette.

Amanpour, Fake News, Fear Mongering, Objective Fact and AUDITING REPORTAGE
“First the media is accused of inciting, then sympathizing, then associating — until they suddenly find themselves accused of being full-fledged terrorists and subversives. Then they end up in handcuffs, in cages, in kangaroo courts, in prison — and then who knows?”
The problem is truth. To Ms. Amanpour (actually Mrs. James Rubin, worth $12.5m herself, wife of the Assistant Secretary of State for Bill Clinton ) truth is 5 degrees past the worst paranoid belief about Trump.
Truth is the danger that he is, as she put it, an “Erdogan, Putin, the Ayatollahs, Duterte”..notably she leftoff CHAVEZ, a man whose racism is unarguable TRUTH, or the man Obama appointed to the FCC, Lloyd who OPENLY admired Chavez who forced the oldestTV station in Venezuela of the air for opposing him. It would not be because he is a leftist would it?
An audit of the path of the TRUTH in the case of Steve Bannon, the alt-right, is instructive.
Media Matters owned and directed by a man who is an ADMITTED Nazi collaborator during WW2, and who admitted specifically this, and who told Newsweek he had NO bad conscience over it, hiredDavid Brock who ACCEPTED the words of a woman in the midst of both a divorce and a custody fight that Bannon told her he didn’t want his girls to go to private school with a bunch of whiny Jews as being factually correct and objectively true.
I think we know. This is the KGB famous grain of ‘TRUTH’ in a dizinformaziya campaign.
Did Bannon say this? Did he mean it? (HE SENT THE GIRLS TO THE SCHOOL IN QUESTION..look it up)
I don’t know. BUT NEITHER DO ANY OF THOSE REPORTING RACISM/ANTISEMITISM.
This was then added to alt-right articles (actually EXPLANATORY in nature in most cases) at Breitbart to construct right wing, anti semite, racist, fascist dream team of condemnatory talking points.
Other stories from Huffington Post and the like that Bannon ‘boasted’ he had made Brietbart into a program platform for this ALT-RIGHT follow this. I searched for this boast and found nothing.
Likewise the entire brouhaha over the NPI, the National Policy Institute which is the supposed beating heart of the ALT-RIGHT. We all remember what Sanchez fired off in his famous CNBC rant after Obamacare was launched. Millions of, in and sympathetic to the ideas of the Tea Party (fidelity to the founding doc, and financial responsibility in govt) filled the streets. Well, the NPI held its national rally this past week. Politico reports about 150 attendees and as many reporters.
WHAT ALT-RIGHT MOVEMENT? 150 sick pseudo thinkers so filled with diseased inner compulsions they, like David Duke imagine Trump/Bannon are blowing the secret George Lincoln Rockwell Reich whistle?
Salon and others, including FORBES, who quoted Salon , who quoted Media Matters then build the scaffolding around which stories devoid of objective reality become repeatable believable … INCITEMENT.
You know, like certain people get told over and over in the same way that Jews are stealing their organs for other rich Jews.
This is fake news every bit as much as Obama signing papers to open the border.
But this is the TRUTH Amanpour is afraid will be denigrated.
This is why I believe NOTHING I see or read. I do my own follow up and then I decide.
Tucker Carlson Interviews an "Increasingly Agitated Karl Rove"
Fox News’s Tucker Carlson faced an increasingly agitated Karl Rove on Tuesday night when he asked the former senior adviser to George W. Bush why Rove had failed to predict Donald Trump’s stunning election victory this month.
Rove, who consistently predicted bad electoral news for Trump, wasn’t anxious to discuss the issue on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” and immediately started talking about how “a lot of smart people” had predicted that a Trump win would spike the financial markets.
Carlson brought Rove back on track.
“My question and I think it’s a really significant one — is why did nobody call any of this ahead of time and I am including you in this, why did nobody see this coming?” Carlson asked.
“Have you taken a moment to ask yourself with all the data in the world at my disposal was I unable to see this?”
BEIRUT (Reuters) - Extending U.S. sanctions on Iran for 10 years would breach the Iranian nuclear agreement, Iran Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei said on Wednesday, warning that Tehran would retaliate if the sanctions are approved.
The U.S. House of Representatives re-authorized last week the Iran Sanctions Act, or ISA, for 10 years. The law was first adopted in 1996 to punish investments in Iran's energy industry and deter Iran's pursuit of nuclear weapons.
The Iran measure will expire at the end of 2016 if it is not renewed. The House bill must still be passed by the Senate and signed by President Barack Obama to become law.
Iran and world powers concluded the nuclear agreement, also known as JCPOA, last year. It imposed curbs on Iran's nuclear program in return for easing sanctions that have badly hurt its economy.
"The current U.S. government has breached the nuclear deal in many occasions," Khamenei said, addressing a gathering of members of the Revolutionary Guards, according to his website.
"The latest is extension of sanctions for 10 years, that if it happens, would surely be against JCPOA, and the Islamic Republic would definitely react to it."
The U.S. lawmakers passed the bill one week after Republican Donald Trump was elected U.S. president. Republicans in Congress unanimously opposed the agreement, along with about two dozen Democrats, and Trump has also criticized it.
Lawmakers from both parties said they hoped bipartisan support for a tough line against Iran would continue under the new president.
(CNN)Donald Trump's pick to be national security adviser, retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, called Islamism a "vicious cancer inside the body of 1.7 billion people" that has to be "excised" during an August speech.
Flynn, who has called Islam as a whole a "cancer" in the past, made the comments during a speech to the Ahavath Torah Congregation in Stoughton, Massachusetts. Video of his speech is available on YouTube and was reviewed by CNN's KFile.
"We are facing another 'ism,' just like we faced Nazism, and fascism, and imperialism and communism," Flynn said. "This is Islamism, it is a vicious cancer inside the body of 1.7 billion people on this planet and it has to be excised."
If you think his comment is extreme, considering the comment from Bono which has been in our sidebar for years now:
"I WANT TO BE VERY, VERY CLEAR, HOWEVER: I UNDERSTAND AND AGREE WITH THE ANALYSIS OF THE PROBLEM. THERE IS AN IMMINENT THREAT. IT MANIFESTED ITSELF ON 9/11. IT'S REAL AND GRAVE. IT IS AS SERIOUS A THREAT AS STALINISM AND NATIONAL SOCIALISM WERE. LET'S NOT PRETEND IT ISN'T."
DEAN BAQUET, executive editor of The New York Times: As you describe it, you did do something really remarkable. You energized a lot of people in the country who really wanted change in Washington. But along with that — and this is going to create a tricky thing for you — you also energized presumably a smaller number of people who were evidenced at the alt-right convention in Washington this weekend. Who have a very …
TRUMP: I just saw that today.
BAQUET: So, I’d love to hear you talk about how you’re going to manage that group of people who actually may not be the larger group but who have an expectation for you and are angry about the country and its — along racial lines. My first question is, do you feel like you said things that energized them in particular, and how are you going to manage that?
TRUMP: I don’t think so, Dean. First of all, I don’t want to energize the group. I’m not looking to energize them. I don’t want to energize the group, and I disavow the group. They, again, I don’t know if it’s reporting or whatever. I don’t know where they were four years ago, and where they were for Romney and McCain and all of the other people that ran, so I just don’t know, I had nothing to compare it to.
But it’s not a group I want to energize, and if they are energized I want to look into it and find out why.
What we do want to do is we want to bring the country together, because the country is very, very divided, and that’s one thing I did see, big league. It’s very, very divided, and I’m going to work very hard to bring the country together…..
UNKNOWN: Mr. President-elect, I wanted to ask you, there was a conference this past weekend in Washington of people who pledged their allegiance to Nazism.
TRUMP: Boy, you are really into this stuff, huh?
PRIEBUS: I think we answered that one right off the bat.
UNKNOWN: Are you going to condemn them?
TRUMP: Of course I did, of course I did.
PRIEBUS: He already did.
UNKNOWN: Are you going to do it right now?
TRUMP: Oh, I see, maybe you weren’t here. Sure. Would you like me to do it here? I’ll do it here. Of course I condemn. I disavow and condemn.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel warned Wednesday against the power of fake news on social media to spur the rise of populists, after launching her campaign for a fourth term.
Speaking in parliament for the first time since her announcement Sunday that she would seek re-election next year, Merkel cautioned that public opinion was being “manipulated” on the internet.
“Something has changed — as globalisation has marched on, (political) debate is taking place in a completely new media environment. Opinions aren’t formed the way they were 25 years ago,” she said.
“Today we have fake sites, bots, trolls — things that regenerate themselves, reinforcing opinions with certain algorithms and we have to learn to deal with them.”
Merkel, 62, said the challenge for democrats was to “reach and inspire people — we must confront this phenomenon and if necessary, regulate it.”
She said she supported initiatives by her right-left coalition government to crack down on “hate speech” on social media in the face of what she said were “concerns about the stability of our familiar order”.
“Populism and political extremes are growing in Western democracies,” she warned.
Last week, Google and Facebook moved to cut off ad revenue to bogus news sites after a US election campaign in which the global misinformation industry may have influenced the outcome of the vote.
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.
In this case, they found that the vests were not threatening and noted that one witness said he thought the men were part of a bachelor party.
The same court had already thrown out the case last year, but was overruled on appeal by a higher court which agreed with prosecutors that the ban on uniforms could be applied in this case.
Monday's verdict is not yet final and may still be appealed.
The "sharia police" members walked the streets of Wuppertal in September 2014, telling nightclub-goers to refrain from drinking alcohol and listening to music, and arcade customers not to play games for money.
Famous Egyptian Preacher Declares He Is Islam’s Messiah, The “Mahdi”
An Egyptian preacher has surprised his followers by announcing that he is indeed the Mahdi – prophesized in Islam as the religion’s last redeemer to fight alongside the Mesiah – and asked all Muslims to be pledge their allegiance to him.
Mohammed Abdullah al-Nasr, a famous Egyptian television preacher known as Sheikh Mizo , declared on his Facebook page that he is the “Mahdi”, quoting the Prophet Mohammad and calling both Sunnis and Shiites to comply with his ruling.
“Important statement: I hereby declare that I am the Imam Mahdi, Mohammad bin Abdullah, prophecies were told about me. I have come to rule with justice and I call on Sunnis, Shiites and the people of the earth as a whole to adhere to me as an illustration of the saying of the Prophet, peace be upon him as he said: (When the apocalypse comes, on the last day, God will send someone of my descendent, his name is like mine, his father’s name is like my father’s name, and he will rule with justice an earth that was ruled with oppression and injustice).
Saying as certified by Alalbani in Sahih Abou Daoued,” he wrote on Facebook.
Nasr said that the discourses of the prophet, leave no room for suspicion that the upcoming Mahdi is called Mohamed bin Abdullah, adding:
“My name is indeed Mohammad bin Abdullah.”
Several Egyptian lawyers have demanded the prosecution of the preacher, requesting a psychiatric evaluation of his mental faculties.
Dr. Samir Sabri spoke to Al Arabiya stating that he filed a complaint on Monday to the Attorney-General requesting the prosecution of “Mizo” and assigning a court to follow his case where he will be charged with fraud and contempt of religion punishable under Articles 336 and 98 of Egypt’s penal code.
At first blush, Donald Trump’s decision to swear off criminal investigations of Hillary Clinton didn’t look like a good idea.
At second blush, it looks like a terrible idea.
The decision, dribbled out in a TV report and then confirmed by aide Kellyanne Conway, is too momentous to come in bits and pieces and from anyone other than Trump directly.
He made the pledge at a debate to appoint a special prosecutor, and it smacks of Washington-as-usual for the reversal to slither out the back door.
To be sure, there is a pragmatic argument for dropping the pledge. New investigations of Clinton could consume Washington and interfere with Trump’s plans to deliver on big economic and immigration promises, which are more important to the well-being of the country.
Trump had hinted at that view, telling the Wall Street Journal after his victory that Clinton probes were not high on his agenda.
“It’s not something I’ve given a lot of thought, because I want to solve health care, jobs, border control, tax reform,” he said.
Another reason to back off is that appointing special prosecutors can be risky because they are free of nearly all oversight, except the courts’.
President George W. Bush was pushed to name one in the Valerie Plame case, and it backfired when the real leaker was never prosecuted while White House aide Scooter Libby was unfairly prosecuted and convicted.
Yet arguments in favor of keeping the prosecution promise also are compelling. To start with, the debate pledge was no ordinary campaign blarney.
About 67 million people watched the fiery face-off, and the issue was a centerpiece of Trump’s claim that Washington is rigged in favor of insiders and that he could fix it.
The ideal that all are equal before the law is the essence of America and should not be trifled with casually.
The pledge also resonated because the FBI investigation into Clinton violated many usual procedures.
Despite a mountain of evidence that Clinton’s use of a private server led to the mishandling of national secrets, President Obama said it was just a mistake that didn’t harm the country.
As I wrote at the time, Obama’s defense was the all-clear signal, and we later learned that the Justice Department never convened a grand jury, never issued subpoenas and took the highly unusual step of granting limited immunity to five Clinton aides. And don’t forget Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s suspect meeting with former President Bill Clinton during the investigation.
Against that backdrop, the FBI decision not to recommend charges looked like a fix. Trump left no doubt about his feelings, saying Clinton was “guilty.”
Another complicating factor in his latest comments are reports that the FBI has had a two-year investigation into the Clinton Foundation. The focus is said to be on whether Clinton, as secretary of state, traded government favors for contributions to the foundation and millions of dollars in speaking fees to her husband.
Some incidents suggest America’s interests were disregarded as the foundation got many, many millions from multinational firms and foreign individuals and governments. To me, some of those incidents look like bribery.
If that probe remains ongoing, is Trump planning to stop it? If so, on what basis?
1) He's not letting her off the hook. He said he's not taking pursuing charges against her off the table. He's distancing himself and what could be perceived as personal vendetta from his DoJ. This way as soon as Sessions brings it up Trump can say "nope DoJ is independent". This is in stark contrast to the current politicized and criminal DoJ of OKenyan.
2) This is from NYT:
Donald Trump seemed to acknowledge that humans contribute to climate change Tuesday in a meeting with New York Times reporters, moving closer to widely held scientific opinion but away from the Republican Party line.
He is keeping an "open mind" when it comes to climate issues, he said.
"I think there is some connectivity" between human activity and climate change, Trump said[.]
In other words he said nothing. Or changed anything.
All of his statements on every single thing so far since he's been elected are designed to make him appear NOT unhinged and destroy the media narrative about him.
The decisions that he is making or considering are designed to get the opposition to him out of the way so he can get his agenda passed (Priebus as COS specifically for example is so he can get the RINOs in Congress, through Ryan, on his side).
He is also very aware that the electors haven't voted yet and there's a concerted effort by assholes to get the electors to vote against Trump. He shows any sign of "being unfit to be president" and he gives these groups more ammo.
My advice? Wait till he's inaugurated.
If you think I'm basing this on nothing. Go back and watch how Trump's behavior changed when he endorsed Ryan and McCain and the lot. It was at a time when he needed to focus solely on the demon-crats and avoid getting attacked from both sides.
That is the stage he's in right now. He's not a baby. He needs people on his side and he needs people to buy that he's stable and not unhinged.
“Pizzagate”: How 4Chan Uncovered the Sick World of Washington’s Occult Elite
This stuff is so sick, and outside of the world I understand, I feel as if I don't know which end is up and which is down when I read it.
Therefore, I'm not going to excerpt much. I will just say, it's about Hillary's friend's John and Tony Podesta, and it's about child abuse, molestation, torture, cannibalism, and art.
And Pizza? Well, yeah, a Pizza Parlor named Comet Ping Pong in the D.C. area, and how Pizza is used as a code word in their circles. Comet Ping Pong is, apparently, owned by Media Matters' David Brock's boyfriend.
Posters over at 4Chan and Reddit have been conducting an extremely bizarre investigation following the John Podesta e-mail leak (Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman) and the results are surreal: They’ve apparently uncovered an elite child trafficking network which celebrates its tendencies using code words and disturbing artworks.
In my article Clinton’s Campaign Chairman John Podesta Invited to an Occult ‘Spirit Cooking’ Dinner by Marina Abramović, I explained how a mundane dinner invitation found in the Podesta e-mail leaks was actually a clear link to bizarre occult ceremonies happening at the highest levels of power. While that by itself was rather shocking, it appears to only be the tip of a very disgusting iceberg.
4Chan effectively unearthed a strange network of high-powered people who, through art, events and social media, actually celebrate a culture that revolves around death, torture, cannibalism and … child abuse. Most of this disturbing material was not even hidden, it was out there in the open, exposed on business’ walls and posted on social media.
Here's some of the artwork:

There are many things that separate the alternative right from old-school racist skinheads (to whom they are often idiotically compared), but one thing stands out above all else: intelligence. Skinheads, by and large, are low-information, low-IQ thugs driven by the thrill of violence and tribal hatred.
The alternative right are a much smarter group of people — which perhaps suggests why the Left hates them so much. They’re dangerously bright.
The origins of the alternative right can be found in thinkers as diverse as Oswald Spengler, H.L Mencken, Julius Evola, Sam Francis, and the paleoconservative movement that rallied around the presidential campaigns of Pat Buchanan. The French New Right also serve as a source of inspiration for many leaders of the alt-right.
The media empire of the modern-day alternative right coalesced around Richard Spencer during his editorship of Taki’s Magazine. In 2010, Spencer founded AlternativeRight.com, which would become a center of alt-right thought.
Alongside other nodes like Steve Sailer’s blog, VDARE and American Renaissance, AlternativeRight.com became a gathering point for an eclectic mix of renegades who objected to the established political consensus in some form or another. All of these websites have been accused of racism.
Today, a video has surfaced of Richard Spencer calling out "Hail Trump" to a group of his adoring supporters, only to be greeted with an enthusiastic reply and a smattering of Nazi salutes, as if on cue.
These people are, clearly, used to doing such things.
A video has emerged showing Richard Spencer, a leader of the so-called "alt right movement", leading a white nationalist crowd in salutes of "Hail Trump!"
Many of the more than 200 attendees at the conference appeared to give the Nazi arm salute as they echoed Mr Spencer's declaration.
Here's what we know about him so far...
Who is Richard Spencer?
As president of a think tank called the National Policy Institute, Richard Spencer has been credited with coining the term "alternative-right", or "alt-right" for short.
His non-profit group, which promotes the white nationalist movement, is "dedicated to the heritage, identity, and future of people of European descent in the United States".
Mr Spencer, who has called for “peaceful ethnic cleansing”, says he dreams of a "new society, an ethno-state that would be a gathering point for all Europeans".
Before heading up NPI, he founded the now defunct website Alternative Right, which was "dedicated to heretical perspectives on society and culture - popular, high, and otherwise - particularly those informed by radical, traditionalist, and nationalist outlooks".
The nonprofit Southern Poverty Law Centre, which tracks hate groups, has described Mr Spencer as an "academic racist" who backs creation of an Aryan homeland.
Mr Spencer is banned from the UK and 26 other European countries, after he was deported from Hungary for organising a conference for white nationalists.
His views on Trump
As a supporter of Donald Trump, Mr Spencer's profile grew throughout the US election campaign. The president-elect has distanced himself from the movement and Mr Spencer, himself, says the celebrity businessman does not represent the movement.
However, he adds: “I think that Donald Trump is the kind of first step toward this new kind of politics that I’ve been outlying. It’s maybe the first awkward, maybe vulgar step in that direction.
“I think that’s a very good thing. And I think Donald Trump has appealed to the right people around the world," he told ABC's The Hack programme in Australia before the election.
"I am part of a movement that is bigger than Trump. Trump was a first step towards an awakening of identity politics, towards an awakening of a new European spirit in the world."
The unstated target of this piece from the Telegraph is more Stephen Bannon (editor of Breitbart at the time of the above-mentioned piece by Milo). For his part, Stephen Bannon has completely rejected Ethno-Nationalist:
“I’m an economic nationalist. I am an America first guy. And I have admired nationalist movements throughout the world, have said repeatedly strong nations make great neighbors. I’ve also said repeatedly that the ethno-nationalist movement, prominent in Europe, will change over time. I’ve never been a supporter of ethno-nationalism.”
I know Stephen Bannon is not an anti-Semite. There is no doubt of that. However, Milo's too-sanguine approach to describing leaders of the Alt-Right movement has really become a problem for Stephen Bannon, and has opened him up to charges of White Supremacism. These charges may be unfair, however, because Bannon is Trump's Chief Strategist, this one single article from Milo Yiannopolis is becoming a big problem.
Barack Obama sat in the pews of Jeremiah Wright's church for twenty years and listened to Wright spew racist rhetoric and curse America.
Stephen Bannon did not sit in the equivalent of Richard Spencer's church. Stephen Bannon may truly despise Richard Spencer. But, as Editor he was responsible for the content of Breitbart's daily outpourings.
The situation on the ground is absolutely unacceptable. Something needs to be done about it.
The whole Leftist world is upset with one article Milo wrote (under Bannon's editorship) which discussed Identity politics on the right in a dispassionate manner. Meanwhile the left passionately defends it's own brand of Identity politics, which is no less racist than the Right's identity politics.
Screw the left. Thank God ONE OF THEM gets it. When are the rest of these idiots going to wake up?
All of us, every single man, woman, and child on the face of the Earth were born with the same unalienable rights; to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. And, if the governments of the world can't get that through their thick skulls, then, regime change will be necessary.

"We are looking forward to the day when moderate Muslims will be able to take control of their governments, their educational systems, and their law and order, so the Western world could resume mutual constructive relations based on friendship and respect. The whole world is looking forward to that day and praying for a peaceful Middle East. The ball is now in the Muslim world's court."
-- President Elect Donald J. Trump
"An Islamic regime must be serious in every field," explained Ayatollah Khomeini. "There are no jokes in Islam. There is no humour in Islam. There is no fun in Islam."
"I want to be very, very clear, however: I understand and agree with the analysis of the problem. There is an imminent threat. It manifested itself on 9/11. It's real and grave. It is as serious a threat as Stalinism and National Socialism were. Let's not pretend it isn't." ~~~~~Bono~~~~~
