So much for the notion these riots were the spontaneous outburst of native Charlotteans.
The plight of Sandra Langlois is now confronting hundreds of thousands:
The influx of immigrants - both legal and illegal - has made it harder for native-born Americans who don't speak Spanish to find jobs in areas of the country that have grown more ethnically diverse in recent years. Albertville is a town that reflects the demographic changes that are having a major economic impact in wide swaths of the country. Its population numbers 21,462 – with 30 per cent of those Hispanic. Nearly 3,800 locals were born outside the US.Big Business is just as self-serving as Big Government. They prop each other up and screw over the citizens whose taxes and work empowered and enriched them.

This is just what we need: More SJWs converging on Charlotte. We're trying to put out a fire and these goons are bringing gasoline.
Keith Lamont Scott was a gentle "mama's boy," "a quiet family man," a father of seven (?) who was quietly reading a book when he was suddenly shot dead by a Charlotte police officer, the victim of what the Charlotte NAACP president described as "a modern-day lynching," inciting justified protests against systemic racism. Or so the Black Lives Matter and their allies, the Social Justice Warriors, would have us believe. A few minutes of research proves otherwise, as reported by the Charlotte Observer:
A public records search shows that Scott was convicted in April 2004 of a misdemeanor assault with a deadly weapon charge in Mecklenburg County. Other charges stemming from that date were dismissed: felony assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, and misdemeanor assault on a child under 12, assault on a female and communicating threats. In April 2015 in Gaston County Court, Scott was found guilty of driving while intoxicated. In 1992, Scott was charged in Charleston County, S.C., with several different crimes on different dates, including carrying a concealed weapon (not a gun), simple assault and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. He pleaded guilty to all charges.Since Tuesday's shooting, Charlotte has been torn by violent protests ignited by the first narrative. But that narrative has been thoroughly discredited by the facts. NO BOOK was found at the scene; however, Scott's gun HAS BEEN FOUND -- the gun the officer repeatedly told Scott to drop. And the latest reports announce that the police are going to reveal the live feed videos of the shooting. Will conclusive evidence shut up the BLM/SJWs? No, because lies and pure fabrication are all they have. They will continue to threaten, loot, and close down traffic while issuing their endless demands. At some point, we're going to have to inform these clowns their time is up, and that we've heard enough of their lunatic ravings.

"It clearly appears as if our lives don't matter. We need to change policies. We need to change procedure. We need to hold police accountable. It's a modern-day lynching." - Corine Mack, president of the Charlotte chapter of the NAACP, on the shooting of Keith Lamont Scott. Lynching? And remember, the NAACP is considered "mainstream."
Charlotte, NC, at at College Downs complex on Old Concord Road: Police say a suspect got out of his vehicle with a gun, and the officer shot him. Further, police say they have recovered the gun. However, the suspect's family claims the man was reading a book when the police officer shot and killed him. Rioters took to the streets, setting fires and smashing the windows of passing cars, then looted the local WalMart. Police moved in to restore order, but were attacked, sending nine officers to the hospital. Okay, so a Black officer shoots and kills a Black suspect who was brandishing a gun the police have positively identified. But what's the takeaway message from this tragic incident? According to the brother of the suspect, "All White people are f-----g devils. All White police are f-----g devils. And White people." He's in this video at 2:10 in. Such is the current state of race relations in post-racial America. Meanwhile, politicians, the media, and Hollywood stir the pot, constantly pounding in the message that "systemic racism" and "White privilege" are at the root of all Black problems. They're throwing fuel on the fire just like the rioters blocking I-85 in the following video: Clearly, more chaos is on the way all over the country. No wonder Chicago plans to boost its police force by 970 officers. On a personal note, this latest clash between the Black Lives Matter militants and police is mighty close to home. I'll be commenting on this further, with my head down and eyes open.

Oh, my. A Democratic administration accidentally gave citizenship to 800 more Democratic voters. Oops. Looks like DC confers citizenship as recklessly as the Pentagon squanders billions. And what's the big deal? US citizenship is meaningless anyway, so this Fox News report doesn't surprise me the least:
More than 800 illegal immigrants from countries of concern who were set for deportation were mistakenly granted U.S. citizenship because the Department of Homeland Security didn’t have their fingerprints on file, according to an internal audit released Monday. The Homeland Security Department’s inspector general found the immigrants used different names or birthdates to apply for citizenship with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration. In the case of 858 immigrants from "special interest countries or neighboring countries with high rates of immigration fraud," the discrepancies weren’t caught because their fingerprints were missing from government databases.Don't imagine for a moment this is bloated, inept bureaucracy caught stumbling. No, it's doing exactly what its superiors designed it to do -- replace the regime's traditional citizenry with a new, more pliable population.
The recent spate of terror attacks has folks a little rattled, mainly because they uncover evidence of future such attacks. Consider: Suspect in stabbings at Minnesota mall was ‘a soldier of the Islamic State’ NY, NJ bombings: Same man wanted; terror cell likely involved, officials say So what action should our public officials take? There's only one answer:
Alexandria will seek to move Confederate statue and rename Jefferson Davis Highway In a town that once took considerable pride in its Confederate past, the Alexandria City Council voted unanimously Saturday to change the name of Jefferson Davis Highway and seek permission from the Virginia General Assembly to move a renowned statue of a Confederate soldier in historic Old Town.I can't think of a more appropriate response to invasion that attacking one's native heritage. As for a new name for the Jefferson Davis Highway, I suggest Hajj.

More good news from Germany as Frau Merkel suffers yet another drubbing at the polls:
German Chancellor Angela Merkel's party suffered a bruising loss in Berlin state elections Sunday while the right-wing populist AfD gained fresh support, capitalising on anger over her open-door refugee policy. The anti-Islam Alternative for Germany party won over 12 percent, according to public broadcasters' projections, in the capital which has long prided itself on being a hip, diverse and multicultural city. ... "From zero to double-digits, that's a first for Berlin," cheered the AfD's top Berlin candidate, Georg Pazderski, predicting that the electorate would next year kick out Merkel's national right-left grand coalition. Merkel meanwhile -- after suffering a stinging loss to the AfD in another regional poll two weeks ago -- will face further pressure "to explain her political strategy", said Gero Neugebauer of Berlin's Free University.But I wonder just how many more rapes, bombings, and axe attacks by Muslim invaders it will take before Germans demand Merkel and her collaborators resign in disgrave. Though in the meantime, it is encouraging to read how she and her fellow traitors are reeling under "stinging defeats" and "bruising losses."
... is a much more interesting place than the old 90% White America. Just check out these latest headlines: ISIS wing claims responsibility for Minnesota mall attack Bomb explodes near Marine Corps race in New Jersey New York blast 'obviously an act of terrorism,' governor says Knifings, shootings, bombings -- yep, we're now a lot like the Middle East, which is always simmering in low-level warfare. Only I suspect things will heat up as the migration of people from violence-torn areas flood in and build a critical mass. Who needs borders?

The author wonders how Virginia can continue to preserve its monuments to Southern heritage while it becomes more diverse:
Nine years ago, a driver lost control of his pickup truck and crashed into the Confederate monument on the front lawn of the Franklin County Courthouse, decapitating the marble soldier. Some locals who found the monument offensive said they were glad to see it go, but there was never much doubt that once the money was raised, the soldier would be back. The rededication ceremony in 2010 drew a crowd of about 500 people—women wore hoop skirts and men donned the gray uniforms of Confederate soldiers. “We’re very proud of it,” says Linda Stanley, managing director of the Franklin County Historical Society in Rocky Mount, Virginia, 25 miles southeast of Roanoke. “This whole county’s very, very patriotic.” This was the way skirmishes over Confederate history have often gone—history is replaced, not rewritten. That is, until last year, when white supremacist Dylann Roof gunned down nine people at an African-American church in Charleston, South Carolina. The massacre set off a national debate about Confederate symbols in public places, leading to an intense and ultimately successful campaign to permanently remove the Confederate flag from the South Carolina capitol grounds, where it had flown for decades.Strange, isn't it, that we're constantly assured immigrants only want to assimilate when they come here (whether legally or illegally), yet we're supposed to abandon our traditions, culture, and identity to accommodate them? It wasn't supposed to work that way. An even stranger question is how the actions of ONE mentally disturbed young man, Dylan Roof, who killed nine people, requires us to re-brand Southern culture as evil, yet repeated Muslim mass murders in this country are supposed to be ignored? Strange indeed.
Here's a great intro to a talented band of proud Southern musicians:
Perhaps Southern roots are too deep to pull. Even in the PC world gone mad, there are still Southerners, young Southerners, who proudly claim Dixie and her people as their own. Some of it has become cliché, almost a new type of commercialism, but it is easy to spot the poseurs. Whiskey Myers aren’t poseurs. This Texas based blues/rock band has always had its ear to the ground and a feel for the South. Their “Ballad of a Southern Man” is one of the best modern odes to the South, and their newest effort, Mud, is grittier, a tour-de-force excursion into the heart of the Southern people. You can feel, smell, and taste the Southern mud along the riverbank. This isn’t a popcorn Southern album. Whiskey Myers exposes the Southern soul, her pain and her joys.And you'll definitely want to check out the two music videos embedded at the link, courtesy of the Abbeville Institute.

"These days, after 9/11 and Fort Hood and the Boston Marathon and San Bernardino and Orlando, the global Islamic umma is rapidly shaping up to be the West’s opponent in a seemingly inevitable World War III. And unlike World War II, we’ll likely have to fight this one on home turf." - Jim Goad
Seeing as how Neocon ideology grew out of its founders' Trotskyite beliefs, it's no surprise they sound like typical leftists. Check out this pair of quotes from Ann Coulter:
Compare the opening lines of James Kirchick of the New York Daily News and Dana Milbank of The Washington Post in their columns on Hillary’s “basket of deplorables” insult: Kirchick: “Hillary Clinton was way off base Friday night when she claimed that ‘half’ of Donald Trump supporters are ‘deplorable’ racists, sexists and nativists. … It’s not 50 percent of Trump supporters who are bigots. It’s closer to 100 percent.” Milbank: “Hillary Clinton may have been unwise to say half of Donald Trump’s supporters are racists … If anything, when it comes to Trump’s racist support, she might have low-balled the number.”

Okay, this is madness. All the wealthy nations we're protecting, including Israel, South Korea, and Germany, have got to man up and take care of themselves. No more sponging off your idiot Uncle Sam. He's broke, and has his own security problems to deal with, starting with a laughable southern border.

Be careful what you ask for, because you might just get it, and hard. Blacks in Chicago are now killing each other while the police go "fetal." This is another clear-eyed report from the bravest social analyst in the country, Heather Mac Donald:
Chicago is the country’s most-glaring example of what I have called the “Ferguson effect.” Chicago officers have cut back drastically on proactive policing under the onslaught of criticism from the Black Lives Matter movement and its political and media enablers. In October 2015, Mayor Rahm Emanuel told U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch during a crime meeting in Washington, D.C., that the Chicago police had gone “fetal,” and were less likely to interdict criminal behavior. That pull-back worsened in 2016, with pedestrian stops dropping 82% from January through July 20, 2016, compared with the same period in 2015, according to the Chicago police department. The cops are just “driving by people on the corners,” Mr. Angelo says, rather than checking out known drug dealers and others who raise suspicions. Criminals are back in control and black lives are being lost at a rate not seen for two decades.Can you blame the police? Every time they confront a thug, the powers that be side with the thug. President Obama, the attorney general, the media, the ethnic lobbies, you name it, ALL assume the police are just picking on innocent Blacks. Think this can go on? We're sitting on a powder keg and the lit fuse is getting mighty short.

You remember San Bernardino, the site of the jihad attack last December that left 14 dead and 21 wounded. It seems that city's troubles have only gotten worse, and open borders is again the cause. From the Los Angeles Times:
San Bernardino, still healing from the Dec. 2 terror attack, has seen a surge in violence this year unlike any it has faced in decades. With four months left in 2016, there have been 150 shootings and 47 slayings in the city of 216,000 residents. It had 44 homicides all of last year, including the 14 people killed by terrorists at the Inland Regional Center. The city is now on track to have more murders than in any year since 1995, when 67 people were killed, and there is no clear explanation why. The killings have disproportionately victimized the city’s black residents, who account for 14% of the population but nearly half of those killed. Certain neighborhoods have been affected, but the mayhem has occurred throughout the city.What could explain why violent crime in San Bernardino has skyrocketed? Here's a thought: In 1970, the town was 65.6% White, 14% Black, and only 34.6% Hispanic. That's when sudden demographic change began. Today, San Bernardino is 60% Hispanic, 15% Black, and 19% White. All over the world, demographic upheaval has unbalanced the social order, igniting ethnic conflict. The escalating clash between Blacks and Hispanics is so bad, so glaring, even the Southern Poverty Law Center acknowledges it, though TakiMag offers an even more realistic picture of the level of brutality in this never-ending battle. Big Government knows this. So do its aiders and abettors on the left. Both view growing social chaos as a means to an end; for government, it means more justifications for tighter control on its subject population, while the left imagines its agenda will find fertile ground in anarchy.

"People are not likely to find in political principles the deep emotional content and meaning provided by kith and kin, blood and belonging, culture and nationality. These attachments may have little or no basis in fact but they do satisfy a deep human longing for meaningful community.” - Samuel Huntington

"The whole idea behind the “New Socialist Man” is to reengineer human nature to cut his inherited ties. In a society of completely atomized individuals, there is no family, no religion, no community, no race, no nationality. Just plain, unbiased human beings starting anew. Can you think of anything more boring or meaningless?" - James E. Miller
The ruling elite's ideology is equality. So anything that undermines that regime's foundational myth must be denounced. Little wonder that a myth based on unreality should run afoul of the primary tool of exploring and explaining reality: Math! From CNN:
It's no surprise that inequality in the U.S. is on the rise. But what you might not know is that math is partly to blame. In a new book, "Weapons of Math Destruction," Cathy O'Neil details all the ways that math is essentially being used for evil (my word, not hers). From targeted advertising and insurance to education and policing, O'Neil looks at how algorithms and big data are targeting the poor, reinforcing racism and amplifying inequality.No surprise here. The Supreme Court, in Griggs vs. Duke Power, has already ruled that IQ tests MUST be racist because Blacks don't do as well on them as Whites. Since we've criminalized measuring racial differences in IQ, the next logical step is to put an end to ALL measurement. It's only fair.

"Memory is an answer to the question, “Who am I?” History is about facts, memory is about identity. History is his-story. It happened to someone else, not me. Memory is my story, the past that made me who I am, of whose legacy I am the guardian for the sake of generations yet to come. Without memory, there is no identity. And without identity, we are mere dust on the surface of infinity." - Jonathan Sacks
I suppose this was inevitable:
A mother and daughter from Oklahoma are accused of having an incestuous marriage. Patricia Spann, 43, and Misty Spann, 25, were married in March 2016 in Comanche County, court records show. Police say Patricia is Misty’s biological mother. Investigators with the Department of Human Services discovered the illegal relationship in August while investigating the children who were inside the Spanns’ home.Ah, brave new world! This is just a taste of the social chaos our moral and intellectual betters have opened up for us. The reason to prohibit incest has always been eugenic: The chance of genetic disease can double for the offspring of closely related parents. And since all same-sex "marriages" must resort to adoption or a third party to bear children, why shouldn't relatives be allowed to marry? After all, isn't marriage all about lust? I mean, love?
