BREAKING Michigan Recount Uncovers Serious Voter Fraud in Detroit- VOTES COUNTED UP TO 6 TIMES

From Gateway Pundit:
In one Detroit Precinct, a recount team was given a box of ballots with an unbroken seal where everything appeared proper and in place. The tag on the box said there were 306 ballots. The book said 306, and the ticket said 306, so that means there should be 306 paper ballots on the box. When they pulled out the ballots, there were exactly FIFTY paper ballots in a locked sealed box that again was supposed to have 306. The official canvasser approved count for this precinct was 306. For FIFTY ballots

The good news is, so far, recounts in Wisconsin have not shown massive voter fraud. A little bit, maybe, but not massive.

More Of Obama's Hubris — And Lies

The bragging emitting from the mouth of the Narcissist In Chief just never stops.

Notice that one man rubbed his eyes after Obama's proclamation:

Money quote: “We should take great pride in the progress we’ve made over the last eight years. No foreign terrorist organization has successfully planned and executed an attack on our homeland.”

From Few troops clap for Obama during final national security speech (dated December 6, 2016:
...As mild applause broke out, the cameras cut to the audience.

Of the roughly 20 service members shown at MacDill Air Force Base, only three were clapping.

Most sat with their hands folded or motionless. One man rubbed his eyes.

Most didn’t applaud likely because they remembered attacks being carried out in San Bernardino, California, and Orlando, Florida by jihadis vowing allegiance to ISIS.

And they likely remembered, too, ISIS claiming credit for the attack on Ohio State University by a Somali “refugee.”

Here is a full list of terrorist attacks in the world since Obama became president in 2009, courtesy of the Daily Wire.

Trump: Sprint’s parent company to invest $50 billion and create 50,000 jobs in U.S.

From the Kansas City Star:
President-elect Donald Trump said Tuesday that the Tokyo-based parent company of Sprint Corp. has agreed to invest $50 billion and create 50,000 jobs in the United States. 
Trump made the remarks standing beside Masayoshi Son, who is chairman of Sprint and CEO of SoftBank Group Corp., which owns more than 80 percent of Sprint. 
The Overland Park-based wireless carrier was not mentioned in a brief video of Trump’s comments that ABC posted on Twitter. 
Son spoke with reporters after Trump’s comments in the lobby of Trump Tower in New York and said his plans involve new companies. 
“We were talking about it, and then I said I’d like to celebrate his presidential job” because Trump will advocate deregulation, Son told reporters according to Bloomberg News. He said he would invest in “new companies, startup companies in the United States.”

GOP Leadership to Delay Donald Trump’s Election-Winning Priorities

From Breitbart:
A top ally of House Speaker Paul Ryan has outlined the GOP leadership’s strategy to isolate and block President Donald Trump’s populist campaign promises, likely including his popular immigration reforms. 
“We all agree that some of President Trump’s proposed policies are not going to line up very well with our conservative policies,” Texas Rep. Bill Flores told an inside-the-beltway audience on Dec. 1. 
“Let’s do the things where we agree — let’s do tax reform, lets do Obamacare, lets replace Obamacare, let’s start dealing with border security, let’s rebuild our national security and then, on those areas where his agenda is not exactly aligned with ours … then, we’ll figure out the rest in the next six months,” Flores told Arthur Brooks, president of the American Enterprise Institute. 
“The GOP Congressional leadership wants to pass all its priorities quickly — tax cuts, regulatory cuts, Obamacare repeal, a Scalia replacement, maybe throw in some kind of weak ‘border security’ bill for show,” influential blogger Mickey Kaus told Breitbart, adding: 
But once Trump signs their bills, what do they need him for? His leverage is cut in half. If he wants new laws — mandatory [mandatory] e-Verify, funding for a Wall etc.– it seems like he has to get them while he still has leverage. 
Flores also said that if the GOP takes the lead, Trump also will be less likely to push his populist agenda by changing agency policies and regulations.

Seeing the Rising Tide of Anger, Angela Merkel Tries To Pose As Populist, Calls for Burqa Ban


From the Sun:
Angela Merkel has called for a burqa ban wherever “legally possible” and says the full Islamic veil is “not appropriate” in Germany. 
The German chancellor made the comments at a Christian Democratic Union (CDU) conference having recently declared she will seek re-election. 
She told the annual congress that it was legitimate to expect integration from newcomers, underlining her party’s bid to ban the full face veil. 
“The full veil must be banned wherever it is legally possible,” she said to a large round of applause.
She also calls for NO MORE MUSLIMS!
Merkel also stressed her determination to ensure that there’s no repeat of last year’s huge migrant influx as she seeks a new two-year term in charge of her conservative party.

FBI Investigating “Imminent” Threat Against Los Angeles Red Metro Line

The White Supremacists Are Restless

From Gateway Pundit:
The FBI is investigating an imminent threat against the Los Angeles Metro system for which it had received specific information, officials said. 
Authorities were still trying to determine if the threat was credible. 
The agency received information about the threat for tomorrow morning against the red line Metro. 
According to the FBI, an international partner had given the agency information about an anonymous call to a public safety line reporting a threat, not making one. 
Deirdre Fike, the assistant director to the Los Angeles FBI, said: “The information was relayed this morning to the FBI’s joint-terrorism task force from our international partners that there was a potential threat from an anonymous phone call that was made on a public safety line regarding the red metro line that stops at the Universal Studios here in Los Angeles.

SPLC Report On ‘Trump Effect’ Buried ‘Hate Crimes’ Against White Kids

From the New York Post:
At least 2,000 educators around the country reported racist slurs and other derogatory language leveled against white students in the first days after Donald Trump was elected president. But the group that surveyed the teachers didn’t publish the results in its report on Trump-related “hate crimes.” 
The Southern Poverty Law Center partnered with the American Federation of Teachers, which formally endorsed Hillary Clinton, to circulate the questionnaire among its 1.6 million mostly Democratic members. 
The survey was sent out to K-12 teachers and administrators who subscribe to its “Teaching Tolerance” newsletter. 
The SPLC’s widely cited report — “The Trump Effect: The Impact of the 2016 Presidential Election on Our Nation’s Schools” — reported that 40 percent of the more than 10,000 educators who responded to the survey “have heard derogatory language directed at students of color, Muslims, immigrants and people based on gender or sexual orientation.” 
The takeaway was that Trump-supporting white kids have been harassing minorities at the nation’s schools. 
And SPLC’s schools report, along with a broader report on alleged Trump-inspired hate crimes — “Ten Days After: Harassment and Intimidation in the Aftermath of the Election” — sparked breathless coverage in the New York Times, Washington Post and other major media. 
The reports also triggered a statement Friday from the US Commission on Civil Rights, which expressed “deep concern” that “prejudice has reared its ugly head in public elementary and secondary schools.” 
The panel called for more federal funding to prosecute “hate crimes.”  
But the SPLC didn’t present the whole story. 
The Montgomery, Ala.-based nonprofit self-censored results from a key question it asked educators — whether they agree or disagree with the following statement: “I have heard derogatory language or slurs about white students.” 
Asked last week to provide the data, SPLC initially said it was having a hard time getting the information “from the researchers.” 
Pressed, SPLC spokeswoman Kirsten Bokenkamp finally revealed that “about 20 percent answered affirmatively to that question.” 
Bokenkamp did not provide an explanation for the absence of such a substantial metric — at least 2,000 bias-related incidents against white students — from the report, which focuses instead on “anti-immigrant sentiment,” “anti-Muslim sentiment” and “slurs about students of color” related to the election. 
“They left that result out because it would not fit their ideological narrative,” former Education Department civil rights attorney Hans Bader said. “It was deemed an inconvenient truth.”

Perhaps Democrats Don't Really Want a Recount: Half of Detroit Votes May Be Ineligible

Perhaps Dems really don't want the recount. It could reveal chicanery that was inadequate in achieving its ends:

DetroitNews: Half of Detroit votes may be ineligible for recount
According to state law, precincts whose poll books don’t match with ballots can’t be recounted. If that happens, original election results stand.

Report: British Muslims So Cut Off From The Rest Of Society That They See The UK As 75% Islamic

From the Daily Mail:
Muslims in some parts of the country are so cut off from the rest of society that they believe the majority of Britons share their faith, according to a shock new report. 
The major review by the Government’s integration tsar Dame Louise Casey has found that thousands of Muslims live in enclaves with their own housing estates, schools and television channels. 
Some rarely, if ever, leave their neighbourhoods, and believe that Britain is a Muslim country in which up to three-quarters of the population follow Islam, according to sources who have seen the report. 
However, figures from the 2011 Census put the actual proportion of Muslims in England and Wales at under five per cent, while Christians account for nearly 60 per cent. 
The new review says Muslim enclaves are concentrated in northern areas such as Bradford, Dewsbury and Blackburn, according to reports in The Sunday Times. 
The newspaper quotes sources saying the report will send ‘shock waves’ through the system by attacking the Government, and particularly the Home Office, for failing to manage the consequences of mass migration and promote integration.

St. Louis Islamist Arrested – Said He Was Linked to ISIS and Was Going to Blow Up His Workplace

From KSDK:
A Missouri man is jailed on $500,000 cash bond after being accused of telling co-workers he was affiliated with ISIS and could have their auto-detailing job site blown up by making a phone call. 
St. Louis County prosecutors charged 26-year-old Mustafa Barimac on Sunday with making a terrorist threat. That’s a felony punishable by up to seven years in prison. 
Police in the St. Louis suburb of Creve Coeur say Barimac made the threat Nov. 25 to fellow employees of Teph Seal, showing them a tattoo he claimed was related to ISIS. 
A police investigator wrote in a probable-cause statement accompanying the criminal complaint that Barimac admitted making the threat.

A fawning interview with G. Willow Wilson in Comics Bulletin

Comics Bulletin ran a sugar-drenched interview with G. Willow Wilson by a fellow Islamist, which pushes the narrative that Islamists in the USA are scared after the election of Donald Trump. It begins with the following:
I conducted this interview a few weeks before the US elections took place. As a black Canadian Muslim woman, I’m fearful for the marginalized groups in America right now and what this means for the world. Many of my friends are scared, sad, angry, distressed and some are even hopeless. [...]
How classic, making it sound like everybody is nothing more than a nervous wreck. Anybody who makes such a fuss over politics so badly does nothing to improve anything. The Muslim Ms. Marvel book - which is far from popular if it sells so much lower than 40,000 copies at store level only - will probably wind up doing attacks on Trump so long as it's still around, much like it did with Bernie Sanders.
After debuting with a roar in 2014, Ms. Marvel cultivated a fanbase before a single issue came out, and now the collections are fixtures in book stores. I wanted to talk about Islam because as a Muslim reader, I wanted to get to the heart of one Marvel’s biggest superheroes; a teenage Pakistani-American Muslim girl from Jersey City.
She's only made this whole piece quite a giggler. The only people who make such a big deal out of it are leftists who want to promote dishonesty, and it makes no difference to them how low it actually sells, even in book stores. The interview continues with her denial that this was ever intended as propaganda:
I think there was sort of two camps in terms of expectations of what the series would be. One camp was like, “Oh, it’s gonna be token diversity. It’s just going to be a model minority book. People are going to forget about it after five issues.” So there was kind of that and then on the other side there was, “Oh, it’s going to be Islamic propaganda. It’s going to promote sharia law in the USA. It’s part of like the global conspiracy of Islamic jihad” or whatever. So you know there were those two extremes and what we wanted to do was something completely different. Something that felt very authentic and I think we would not have been able to get there if there were not two Muslim women involved. I think it could not have happened in the way it happened without Sana.
I guess it's not election propaganda either, huh? Taqqiya (deception) and denial that disapproval in Islam that a woman go without a headscarf is just the propaganda they deny they set out to do. Any book where the lead has a bad religion ascribed to her background doesn't qualify as "model" either, though there is quite a bit about the development that reeks of tokenism. She continues her taqqiya with the following:
I thought from the beginning that she should not wear the hijab. I mean she wears it in the mosque obviously and at certain cultural functions but I did not want to make her like a hijabi in her day-to-day life simply because the majority of teenage Pakistani-American girls do not wear a hijab. So even though I wear a hijab – I’ve worn the hijab for most of my adult life – I thought, “You know what? Let’s make this representative. Let’s not, again, do some sort of model minority book or make her sort of this perfect caricature of what we think a Muslim girl looks like.

And stuff about her family. We didn’t want to shy away from conflict but at the same time we wanted to show love and affection. Just the basic day-to-day family scenes that we don’t see a lot of in depictions of American Muslim families. Where it’s not always politically charged stuff. There’s a diversity of thought and opinion. That not everybody in the same family believes or acts in the same way and that was very important. That was at the heart of shaping her civilian identity.
Uh, is she sure of that? Maybe more to the point, is she claiming Muslim men from any background don't exist in any number who dictate what a woman may or may not wear, or that there aren't Muslim women who're either scared, or indoctrinated enough and lack self-esteem? And even if they don't wear a hijab, that doesn't mean they still don't adhere to any other awful beliefs. Next thing you know, she'll be saying the majority of Satmar women don't wear wigs and even cut away their hair just because the degrading leadership dictates it.

She also fails to acknowledge that we don't always see what can happen in a Muslim family where the father - and mother - can be abusive, and commit honor murders. Indeed, if she's claiming the vast majority of Muslim family portraits in showbiz is literally bad, that's naive and dishonest too. The interviewer then goes on to note:
Fun fact: That first issue of Ms. Marvel… I read it and it didn’t sit well with me specifically because Kamala makes a joke about bacon. That “Mmm… infidel meat” moment and immediately in my head, I’m like, “A Muslim wouldn’t say that. That makes no sense. Why would we ever say, ‘oooh, pork smells amazing or bacon does.” It wasn’t until I read issue two and let some time pass that I realized what I wanted out of Kamala was an ideal. I wanted her to be the perfect Muslim so that… less for me because I myself am not the perfect Muslim. I don’t wear the hijab and I personally struggle with that in terms of what that means to me. So I’m definitely not the perfect muslim and it was weird to expect that from Kamala. Then I realized it [the ideal] wasn’t really for Kamala or even for myself but mostly for other people because Kamala was supposed to tell other people, “Look, this is what a muslim is. We’re not terrible.”

GWW: We’re not supposed to be flawed.

AO: Yeah.
Are they saying they're supposed to be saints? Well it sure comes close to that. She goes further with her ignorance in the following:
GWW: There’s so much scrutiny on the community that it’s like you can’t put a foot wrong. You have to be the perfect American. The perfect Muslim. Never question anything. Do the right thing always and I see people breaking under that pressure because it’s not fair. Especially younger kids who’ve grown up in the post-9/11 world. It’s like they’re carrying the honour of the whole community on their shoulders. They always have to be upright and be the perfect Muslim. It’s something to me… we had to push against it somehow. We have to make it okay to be flawed. You shouldn’t have to be a perfect Muslim or a perfect American to feel safe. You should be allowed to be flawed. An important part of creating Kamala was to say… She’s not flawed in the sense of being morally flawed but flawed in terms of having things that you do well and having things that you do not so well. It’s a big issue and there is that burden of representation where you’re sort of… there’s this pressure to lose particularity of experience to get to some sort of universality that doesn’t actually exist.
Unfortunately, she fails to acknowledge that many Muslims do believe you have to be perfect in every way. It can be like that in ultra-Orthodox Jewish communities too; they expect you to follow the customs they dictate perfectly, even though it's idiotic to think one can follow everything on the dot to perfection. Interestingly, the interviewer also notes:
With Ms. Marvel as a superhero and a Muslim, I wonder if you find yourself negotiating with religion like with particular story elements. Do you go, “Man if I write about this magical mischievous Loki… well, should I?” Because some people could be like, “Ugh, magic”. Magic has this place in Islam… it’s kind of frowned upon. As a Muslim woman who is also a writer, I’ve wondered about that.

GWW: It’s an interesting balancing act and sometimes I’ll get these snarky questions on Twitter like, “How could you be a Muslim writer and write about… in the marvel universe, there are gods…” and I’m like… number one, even within the Marvel universe, the Asgardians don’t consider themselves as actual gods. That’s one. Number two, in Islam, anything with a body that can be killed is by definition not god. I feel like comics are, in many ways, in the vein a lot of classical Islamic fantasies like the Alif Laila [aka The Arabian Nights or One Thousand and One Nights], The Conference of the Birds and a lot of that older stuff where there is sorcery in the world and genies and communing with the unseen. It’s frowned upon but it’s there and it’s also part of something larger.
No matter how much they themselves may deny it, there are Muslims out there who not only abhor magic (and by extension, Tales of the Arabian Nights because of its own magical stories), they even conducted witch hunts. Though theoretically, belief in magic does exist in various Muslim countries, a lot of clerics condemn it, and/or view the concept of magic negatively. So there may be another reason why some Muslim may not even read a book set in a world involving magic and sci-fi.

There was one commentor on the interview who said:
Disappointing that she did a storyline in Pakistan and didn't address the persecution of religious minorities but I guess that would clash with the softball narrative she's pushing.
Yup, there's people out there who aren't fooled one bit. In fact, was this interview even aimed at a wide, diverse audience? I get the weird feeling it wasn't, and ultimately, it's just a lot of boring hot air, that doesn't get anywhere.

Big Labor Threw Tons of Cash at Democrats, But Workers Voted Republican

This is YUGE:
Big Labor pumped $530 million of workers’ dues into mostly Democratic Party groups and liberal causes over a four-year period — with dismal results, according to a new analysis. 
Despite the unions’ massive cash infusion into Democratic causes, GOPer Donald Trump still won the union-heavy Rust Belt states of Pennsylvania, Michigan and Ohio in his presidential bid against Dem candidate Hillary Clinton. 
A Republican-led Congress, expected to be hostile to union causes, also was voted into office. “Labor unions have become the ATM of the Democratic Party — despite the known fact that 40 percent of union households vote for Republican candidates,” said Richard Berman, director of the Center for Union Facts, a group typically critical of unions which conducted the study. 
“On top of direct super PAC donations to Democrats, Big Labor hijacks members dues money to bankroll hundreds of liberal special interest groups,” Berman added. 
The group’s analysis reviewed tax filings from 2012 to 2015 to see how much the country’s major labor unions — including the AFL-CIO, teachers and public-employee unions, Teamsters, Auto Workers and Steelworkers — donated to union-friendly and left-liberal groups which promote their agenda. Filings for 2016 are not yet available. 
The review found that the unions plowed $529.9 million into the groups and causes from 2012 to 2015. 
Based on what was spent in previous years, the unions likely donated another $140 million to allied groups in 2016, bringing the total to $670 million over five years. 
A total of $260.4 million went to 45 different party or Democratic leaning groups, including the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation, Democratic Attorneys General Association, the Working Families Party, the Center for American Progress and Planned Parenthood. 
More than $21.5 million went to left-leaning civil rights groups including Al Sharpton’s National Action Network, Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow PUSH Coalition, National Council of La Raza and the NAACP. 
The report also found that unions funneled a combined $196.5 million to liberal economic and environmental groups, including Fiscal Policy Institute of NYC, Greater NY Labor-Religion Coalition, and Make the Road NY. 
In addition, recipients of the dough included NY Communities for Change, formerly ACORN, which received $2 million in 2015. NYCC works closely with the teachers’ union and campaigns against charter-school expansion. 
Another $44.5 million went to what the Center for Union Facts claims are “special interests,” including the Alliance for Quality Education, a teachers’ union allied group.

The Disruptor

My wake up call came on July 19, 2015.
“He’s not a war hero,” said Trump. “He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.”
I had liked Trump’s clear twin messages. The border (security terrorism) and free trade (economy, manufacturing).
But now, not only was this distasteful, and disgusting, but the need to counter punch and win had taken Trump to a place where he was just plain wrong since McCain had simply played the hand he was dealt, and done so with extreme honor. So that was that, I figured. Trump = done.
But that’s not what happened at all. Instead, having hit himself with that swing, he kept on swinging, on TV, radio, in interviews, and most especially where he could ‘talk’ one on one with everyone. The new place. The new thing. The difference. Where people tell each other off all the time.
Like Trump.
Nor was McCain the only ugly example. Carly Fiorina. The reporter. Ted Cruz. Cruz’s father. Then Hillary.
He will counter punch and not stop. Taste is irrelevant. Rightness irrelevant. History, convention, even known facts (what?) irrelevant. He will do it so you know it’s HIM, and not Ben Rhodes, and not Bill Burton, or Fallows, or Mook, or some ‘correct’ un-mispoken professional walk it back DC oatmeal person.
And now that he is president elect, it’s CHINA.
I can imagine him in his office, in the tower which should have been named Susa or Persepolis, or Trianon, or Karnak, something like that, surrounded by gold plated curtains, and a gold telephone (you know, like the one Bell gave Battista in Godfather II) and he picks it up, and it’s Reince who says, ‘hey, Mr. Elect, it’s Tsai Ing-wen, she wants to congratulate you, you want to say hello’?
‘Sure, put her on.’
So China lodges a formal protest?
COUNTERPUNCH- 2 tweets –
Did China ask us if it was OK to devalue their currency (making it hard for our companies to compete), heavily tax our products going into.. their country (the U.S. doesn’t tax them) or to build a massive military complex in the middle of the South China Sea? I don’t think so!
It’s merely a repetition of what IS.
Milquetoast for him. But he made the argument to the American people. One on one. And China has not yet learned.
“Who cares what he tweeted on some Thursday night if we fix this country’s big problems,” Ryan told CBS’ Scott Pelley.
DISRUPTION of the convention.

Trump just told China they will have to be concerned with what WE are going to do.
In 1864 when the Battle of the Wilderness was not going well, Grant was listening to his generals worrying about where Lee was going to outflank them, harry them, launch a new surprise, out march them … he finally got mad and told them he was sick of hearing them worrying that Lee was going to do a somersault and land behind them, and their problem was that Lee should be worrying about what they were going to do. So despite having been told he had tactically lost the battle, Grant sent his troops around the left and headed south towards Richmond and the end of the war.
In 5 weeks Trump will be president.
If you are Iran are you going to render aid on the high seas then escort the US Navy’s broken down vessel out of your claimed territory, or are you going to take them prisoner without fear and make them into a spectacle? Are you going to cheat on that agreement or are you going to worry that SOMEHOW Trump will figure out a way to SCREW YOU economically despite ‘agreements’? In fact maybe you are worrying he will do that ANYWAY.
If you are China are you going to take provocative actions in the Spratly’s, or Senkaku’s? Are you going to take chances with that UNARMED American recon aircraft in international airspace? Are you going to devalue the renmimbi to SUBSIDIZE your exports and preserve the UNCOMPETITVE advantage?
With the counterpuncher?
Maybe he’s crazy! What is HE going to do? It’s going to be SOMETHING.
Adopt Zen. EMBRACE IT.

Our Social Values Hits Bottom

Our social values have been slowly circling the drain for some four or five odd decades - and they've finally reach rock bottom.

People will have to be PAID now to take in their homeless friends and family in New York.
City Will Pay NYers To House Their Homeless Friends & Relatives 
Staring down criticism from shelter-averse neighborhoods across the boroughs, the Department of Homeless Services says it's going to compensate thousands of families willing to take in their homeless friends and relatives next year with gift cards and rental subsidies. The so-called "Home for the Holidays" program, first reported by the Daily News, is intended to move 5,000 families who have been homeless for at least three months in with hosts. "This new City effort will reconnect homeless families with families and friends, assisting them to permanent housing," said DHS Commissioner Steven Banks in a statement.
Being paid to do your Christian duty and get off your ass to do the Christian thing for your friends and family?
And what the hell does 'reconnect' mean?

A frequent criticism of Capitalism is that the corporations are not concerned about their workers, that they are, instead, only concerned with bilking their workers so they can make "obscene profits."

According to this line of thinking, if the corporations can bilk workers in other nations, then all the better for them.

This is a false understanding of Capitalism.

Capitalism is a system whereby individuals manifest the ideas in their heads, so they can build physical products and services, and thereby generate wealth for themselves.

In order to deliver the physical products and services, they must, inevitably, hire other people.

The people in nations like Mexico and Bangladesh take the jobs that pay very little, because it is worth it. There are not enough jobs that pay better, so they take the best they can get in their country.

The only reason people around the world have money is because either

1) they work in subsistence economy





Before Americans and Europeans built the systems under which we live, most of the world existed entirely on a subsistence economy of farming, and making clothes. This is how the Native Americans lived. This is how Africans lived. This is how the whole world lived, until ideas were introduced that allowed human beings to farm better, make clothes better, and remove themselves from enslavement to mere subsistence.

People say, America uses 80% of the world's resources.


The obscene wealth American corporations generate is not the problem, nor is it a problem.

The only problems with Capitalism are the false structures of Socialism which are inserted, as quick fixes to temporary problems in the distribution of product, services, wealth.

It is time for us to concentrate on OUR ECONOMY.

It is time for us to fix our system. We need to eliminate the silly Socialist stopgaps in our system which only incentivize corporations to move their business elsewhere.

I hope Trump does what he says he's going to do


It was never our responsibility to lower our standard of living so that the world could rise.


When Capitalism is allowed to work according to it's natural laws,




*** Obviously this is hyperbole. China, Egypt, Rome, Greece, and other civilizations built themselves up to transcend a subsistence-level economy in the past. And European/American civilization built itself on the backs of those civilizations to a large extent.

MIGRANTS sexually assaulted a group of 18-year-old girls and tried to drag one screaming teenager into an empty room against her will - blame it on "Sexual Compulsion"

The Muslims Are Restless

A Sexual Compulsion called Islamic Supremacy.

A Syrian student also “aggressively fondled” a young victim and relentlessly tried to kiss her despite her physically fighting him and begging him to stop.
Police in Munich, Germany, arrested the Middle Eastern man, who later claimed he had a “sexual compulsion”.
The annual party is specifically for 18-year-olds, many of whom were badly shaken by events.
According to one teenage girl, several people aggressively danced with three girls, and did not let them remove themselves from trouble by simply turning away and clearly saying “no”.
Later five young men were allegedly loitering in front of an empty room and approached young ladies to enter the room with them.
Despite getting “no” for an answer, two of the men grabbed one of the girls and tried to violently drag her in the room.

What Happened to Friday's Gathering Storm Radio Show?

Aa some of you might know, there was no Friday Gathering Storm Radio Show.

Blog Talk Radio decided to place a limit on the shows we can archive if we want to keep the show FREE. If we wanted to continue the way we did it would cost AOW and I $299 a year - at a minimum - to broadcast LIVE.

The only solution was to delete enough of our archived shows to stay under their new 30 hour maximum. We did that and next week's show has been scheduled. Consequently we can only archive a few months of shows at a time going forward. Only November's shows are archived at this time.

In addition, they seem to be limiting to scheduling only one upcoming show at a time. So we have just deal with that.

Thank you all again for being such a loyal audience and we will endeavor to struggle on.

C.A.I.R. is HAMAS: How the Federal Government Proved that the Council on American Islamic Relations is a Front for Terrorism

From the Center for Security Policy:
Since its founding in 1993, the Council for American Islamic Relations (CAIR) has presented itself publicly as a benign Muslim American “civil rights organization.” From that time to this, however, the United States government has known that CAIR actually is an entity founded by the Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestinian franchise: Hamas, a group officially designated since 1994 as a terrorist organization. 
Evidence of CAIR’s true character as a U.S.-based instrument for political warfare and fundraising for Hamas – and the federal government’s certain knowledge of the truth – did not come to light until the largest terrorism financing trial in the nation’s history: the 2007-2008 Holy Land Foundation prosecution. In the course of that trial, FBI Agent Laura Burns testified about, and helped explain, the transcripts of wiretap surveillance conducted in the course of two planning sessions leading up to the organizational meeting of CAIR held in Philadelphia in October 1993 and during the meeting itself. Specifically, she presented proof that CAIR’s mission was to assist “Sister Samah,” its founders’ hardly opaque code-name for Hamas, as the prospect of its terror designation loomed.

Trump Advisor: “We See Viktor Orbán as a Great Leader”

Hungarian Prime Minister, Victor Orban, is one of the few world leaders who outright opposes Islamic immigration, and stands in support of his citizens against the encroaching tyranny of the European Union.

Orban has, in the past, declared his intention to deport Musli "refugees", and has posed the question of why the EU doesn't specifically import Middle Eastern Christians, if they are truly so concerned with giving "refugees" "asylum" from ISIS?
“Those arriving have been raised in another religion and represent a radically different culture. Most of them are not Christians, but Muslims,” he added. “This is an important question because Europe and European identity is rooted in Christianity. Is it not worrying in itself that European Christianity is now barely able to keep Europe Christian? There is no alternative, and we have no option but to defend our borders.”
Why, indeed?

Because this is not about asylum for Refugees. It's about importing Islam into Europe, for some unGodly reason.

From Gates of Vienna:
Trump Adviser: Viktor Orbán is a Great Leader, One of the Best in the World Donald Trump’s campaign team has deep admiration and respect for the Hungarian Prime Minister, said Jeffrey D. Gordon, a campaign adviser for the newly-elected US President, who was interviewed by András Stumpf. He had this to say: 
Viktor Orbán stands on the ground of common sense, and now new chapter will begin in the US-Hungarian relations. 
Trump’s campaign team knew immediately about his speech in Tusványos, and Trump heard about it too. 
The advisor believes the solution for the migrant crisis is the path the Hungarian Prime Minister already suggested. 
A new chapter will open in American-Hungarian relations.

You Gotta Admire Her BALLZ! Sarah Palin Says, Trump's Carrier Deal Looks Like "Crony Capitalism"

You Betcha

From GMA:
Gov. Sarah Palin, who is being considered for a cabinet position in the Trump administration -- is raising alarm over president-elect's recently announced deal with Carrier, suggesting in an op-ed it could amount to "crony capitalism." 
"When government steps in arbitrarily with individual subsidies, favoring one business over others, it sets inconsistent, unfair, illogical precedent," Palin wrote in a 'Young Conservatives' op-ed. 
"Republicans oppose this, remember? Instead, we support competition on a level playing field, remember? Because we know special interest crony capitalism is one big fail." 
Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence traveled to the Carrier plant in Indianapolis Thursday to tout the company agreeing to keep 1,100 jobs in the city instead of shipping hundreds to Mexico. 
Carrier said in a statement the agreement was due in part to the incoming administration's lobbying as well as state tax incentives. 
Trump's transition team has refused to publicly disclose the full details of the deal, but company officials said in a statement Thursday that the state of Indiana, where Pence is governor, offered the company a $7 million package over multiple years, contingent on factors including employment, job retention and capital investment. 

She's got a point. Not only is it a form of Crony Capitalism, (or at least it could ultimately lead to that on a large scale), but it's also going to lead to more and more negotiation by more and more companies.

On the other hand, corporations already lean on cities and states to give them tax breaks. There are whole departments in city and state governments dedicated to incentivizing corporations to move into their areas.

What are you gonna do?

Experts warn Pentagon that China, Russia are ahead in hypersonic weapon research

An unclassified report produced by a blue-ribbon panel of experts for the U.S. Air Force Studies Board at the National Academies of Science warns the Pentagon that both China and Russia are ahead in the race to develop hypersonic weapons.

The United States is vulnerable to future attack by hypersonic missiles from China and Russia and is falling behind in the technology race to develop both defensive and offensive high-speed maneuvering arms, according to a new Air Force study.
“The People’s Republic of China and the Russian Federation are already flight-testing high-speed maneuvering weapons (HSMWs) that may endanger both forward deployed U.S. forces and even the continental United States itself,” an executive summary of the report says.
“These weapons appear to operate in regimes of speed and altitude, with maneuverability that could frustrate existing missile defense constructs and weapon capabilities.”
Hypersonic missiles are ultra-high speed weapons that travel along the edge of the earth’s atmosphere at speeds above Mach 5, or five times the speed of sound. The missiles also can maneuver to avoid current missile defenses—all of which were developed to hit ballistic missiles with predictable flight paths.
The unclassified summary of the report, “A Threat to America’s Global Vigilance, Reach, and Power: High-Speed, Maneuvering Weapons,” was produced by a blue-ribbon panel of experts for Air Force Studies Board at the National Academies of Science. The summary was made public earlier this month.
It is the first U.S. military study to sound the alarm about an arms race quietly underway for several years to develop hypersonic missiles for both strategic nuclear weapons and conventional rapid strike systems.
Mark J. Lewis, chairman of the panel that produced the report, said the panel concluded that as a result of new hypersonic missiles from Russia and China “the United States may be facing a threat from a new class of weapons that will effectively combine speed, maneuverability, and altitude in ways that could challenge this nation’s tenets of global vigilance, reach, and power.”
“Offense and defense are two sides of the same coin; as in the days of the Cold War, the only reliable deterrent to the use of a hypersonic weapon may in fact be the threat of a corresponding hypersonic countermeasure that might hold at risk the very sites from which the adversaries’ hypersonic strike would originate,” Lewis stated in a forward to the summary.
Lewis urged the U.S. government to engage in a major effort to develop both offensive and defensive means to counter high-speed maneuvering weapons. He criticized what he termed the “relatively leisurely pace of disjointed hypersonics technology development” by the Pentagon.
Additionally, foreign nuclear powers are already designing systems that exploit both the organizational disconnects and current technical limits of U.S. defenses, he said.

Air Combat Command, “Defense Against High Speed Weapons Operational Perspective”
According to the study, the new class of high-speed maneuvering weapons operate “at the seams” of U.S. defense and national security systems that make them difficult to counter if the weapons are used against U.S. forces or American territory.
“Put another way, while operational doctrine and command structures adequately address traditional atmospheric air attack or exoatmospheric ballistic missile attack, existing doctrine and organizational structure may not be adequate to address the cross-domain threat posed by [high-speed maneuvering weapons],” the report says.
The report says that some may seek to dismiss the new threat as overblown or non-existent and similar to the Eisenhower-era ballistic missile gap because it has taken decades for the hypersonic missile threat to emerge.
Also, some security analysts say the danger can be mitigated by a “silver bullet” solution, or that the threat will never fully emerge.
“However, the value of extreme speed coupled with maneuverability and altitude constitutes a potential threat to U.S. capabilities that should not be discounted or ignored,” the report warns.

In addition to China and Russia, other states are studying hypersonic weapons, including India.
However, China’s multiple tests of a hypersonic glide vehicle dubbed DF-ZF appear to be the more advanced program. The most recent test took place in April.
A Russian official announced in August that developing hypersonic missiles to defeat U.S. missile defenses is a high priority and that the first weapons could be fielded by 2020.
Russia flight-tested its experimental Yu-71 hypersonic glider in April atop a SS-19 missile.
The Pentagon currently has no well-resourced program to either developing hypersonic missiles or to counter them.
Congress has sought to prod the Missile Defense Agency into focusing more resources on hypersonic missiles.
The defense contractor Lockheed Martin is studying an enhanced version of the Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense known as THAAD-ER, as a possible defense against hypersonic missiles.
The Air Force study said the combination of high-speeds and maneuverability increases the lethality of missiles that can be used to widen the range of attack options, and the missiles operate both within the atmosphere and in space in ways that make them much less vulnerable of conventional ballistic and cruise missile defenses.
Two methods for reaching hypersonic speeds are through missile-powered gliders and rocket, ramjet, or scramjet powered versions.
Such missiles also can conduct precision strikes at ultra-high speeds that the report says could include fixed or slow-moving targets such as runways, command and control facilities, or ships at sea.
“Both categories of high-speed weapons may be capable of carrying conventional or nuclear warheads, thereby complicating strategic intent and posture as well as operational identification, response, and engagement,” the report said.
For those that have sought to play down the hypersonic threat, the report warned that “this is no mere tweaking of an existing threat.”
The committee said it was unable to find any formal strategic operational concept or organizational sense of urgency regarding hypersonic weapons, and faulted what the report called a “lack of leadership coordination” at the Pentagon in seeking countermeasures.
An Air Force spokesman said in a statement that hypersonics are “one of the game-changers that provides high-speed options for engaging time-sensitive targets.”
“The Air Force is developing technologies for a high speed strike weapon to enable a responsive, long-range strike capability,” said Capt. Michael Hertzog, the spokesman.
“These weapons can be employed from fighters and bombers and fly at hypersonic speeds to their intended target on the ground.”
The Air Force is developing what it calls a high-speed strike weapon that will travel at hypersonic speeds. The technology involved in the program includes work on explosives with increased effectiveness in the high temperatures produce by hypersonic speed. Other technology involves smaller warheads, advanced materials for lower weight and cost, precision navigation and control, and solid rocket motor technologies to boost performance for air-launched missiles.
The experts on the Air Force study panel included missile specialists from Raytheon, Lockheed, and Boeing, several former Pentagon weapons developers, and Adm. Richard Mies, former commander of the U.S. Strategic Command.

Threatening Letters Mailed To Mosques

This story is just starting to come out. I'm not sure how many Mosques have received such letters.

The letter says that the mothers of Muslims are "whores", and the fathers are "dogs".

I have not heard many "Infidels" use such words of late. But Muslims do use such words in their attacks on Jews and Christians.


Could these letters be fake? Or is there some crazed Muslim-hater out there who is doing this?

Could be either one.

I like what Epa has to say about it:
Here's what we can say for sure ... whoever wrote that is a sick fuck who has no idea what the fuck America is. NO MATTER WHO WROTE THAT.
What do you think?

Muslims Protest Christian Mayor: Indonesia Blasphemy Protest Swells to 200,000 Strong

The media in America endlessly discusses "Islamophobia", yet ignores Islam's virulent hatred of Christians, and other non-Muslim groups.

Indonesia blasphemy protest swells to crowd of 200,000
At least 200,000 conservative Muslims rallied in the Indonesian capital on Friday in the second major protest in a month against its minority Christian governor who is being prosecuted for alleged blasphemy. 
President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo, who is a political ally of the Jakarta governor, Basuki "Ahok" Tjahaja Purnama, and angered hard-liners by being out of the city during the first protest, unexpectedly went to the national monument to join Friday prayers with the sprawling crowd. 
He called for protesters to disperse peacefully. They cheered and then broke into chants calling for Ahok's arrest, but later people were streaming peacefully out of the area into a main thoroughfare of the city. 
Organizers had agreed to concentrate the protest around the vaulting monument to reduce disruptions but the area quickly overflowed. National Police spokesman Rikwanto, who goes by one name, said police estimated 200,000 people were on the streets. 
Police say 22,000 officers and 5,000 soldiers can be called on to ensure the demonstration stays orderly. 
A protest Nov. 4 against Ahok, the first ethnic Chinese to be Jakarta governor and the first Christian in half a century, attracted about 100,000 people. After nightfall, it turned violent, with one death and dozens injured. 
Police want Friday's protest to disperse in the early afternoon following prayers. The crowds massed in the area of the national monument formed a sea of white that spilled into surrounding streets while gridlocked motorists sat on the sidewalks. Some held huge banners calling Ahok a blasphemer who should be jailed while others chanted and prayed. 
The blasphemy controversy erupted in September when a video circulated online in which Ahok criticized detractors who argued the Quran prohibits Muslims from having a non-Muslim leader. It has challenged the image of Indonesia, the world's most populous Muslim nation, as practicing a moderate form of Islam and has shaken the government of Jokowi, who accused unnamed political actors of trying to undermine him. 
The son of former president Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono is vying against Ahok for Jakarta governor in elections set for February. 
Separately, police said they had arrested eight people suspected of treason including Rahmawati, who is a younger sister of former President Megawati Sukarnoiputri, and a well-known musician turned politician Ahmad Dani. 
Two other people were arrested for alleged crimes under Indonesia's law on electronic information and transactions. Lisnawati Djohar, a resident of West Sumatra's Padang city, said she flew to Jakarta with a dozen friends for the protest. 
"I've been called to defend Islam," she said. "As a Muslim, I feel guilty if I refuse a demand to defend my religion. I believe Ahok insulted the holy Quran and it's hurt us." 
Rizieq Syihab, leader of the Islamic Defenders Front, a vigilante group that helped organize the demonstrations, gave a fiery speech to the protest in which he asserted Indonesia would be peaceful if there was no blasphemy and other problems such as gays.   
Roads leading into the city were clogged in the early morning as white-robed protesters walked to the city center from corners of the sprawling metropolis. Speaking on the main stage at the national monument, National Police Chief Gen. 
Tito Karnavian called for the protesters to support the legal process in the blasphemy case. "We have worked to finalize the dossier and have handed over to the prosecutors. Therefore, I request support from all of you so that the legal process goes well," he said as the crowd cheered "God is Great." 
The accusation of blasphemy has animated the political opponents of Ahok and Jokowi, including hard-liners who have used the issue to seize a national stage for their extreme agenda, which includes Shariah law. Ahok's blasphemy case took a step forward Thursday when it was formally accepted for trial. 
The offense is punishable by up to five years in prison. Police say Ahok can't leave the country during the case. However, hard-line Muslim groups continue to demand he be arrested.
I'm not sure what the man has done to be accused of "blasphemy", other than existing as a non-Muslim.
