The Dalai Lama claimed yesterday that Beijing was planning the mass settlement of 1 million ethnic Chinese people in Tibet after the Olympics with the aim of diluting Tibetan culture and identity. Tibet's exiled spiritual leader also claimed that some of Asia's most important rivers which flow from the Tibetan plateau are being polluted and diminished by careless industrialisation and unplanned irrigation. ... The Dalai Lama said he feared the Chinese authorities could take a tougher line on Tibet after the Olympics, and possibly flood it with Han Chinese, the world's largest ethnic group. ...Funny how we're told race and culture don't matter, except when it does. Officially, China is a communist country based on class consciousness, but it's obvious that it's closer to a distinctively Chinese brand of national socialism. After all, closely regulated private enterprise fuels the country's economy, and the preservation and promotion of Chinese culture is a top priority. The Dalai Lama's warning is one we should heed: "There is every danger Tibet becomes a truly Han Chinese land and Tibetans become an insignificant minority. Then the very basis of the idea of autonomy becomes meaningless." What the people of Tibet face is all too similar to what threatens us. Large-scale migration is invasion. It is war. Let's not fool ourselves any longer, because time is running out.

Tibet has been under illegal and brutal Chinese occupation since 1950. The Han Chinese have had only limited success in fully incorporating Tibet, but it hasn't been for lack of trying. In the past couple of decades, however, Beijing has focused new efforts on obliterating Tibetan culture, as the Dalai Lama observes in this Guardian article:

The rhetoric of the BLM thugs is devolving from bombastic to downright threatening:
Though the outcome of America’s presidential election is still up in the air, Black Lives Matter has made it clear that one outcome is certain. If Donald Trump is the victor, violence will erupt in the streets. This according to rapper and activist Tef Poe when he took to Twitter to say, “Dear white people if Trump wins young n****s such as myself are fully hell bent on inciting riots everywhere we go. Just so you know.”But then, what else can we expect of a movement that's pampered by the media and globalist billionaires? A gang that invents its own facts and still gets supportive news and editorial coverage is now cocky enough to reject the electoral process. That's why Black Lies Matter.

The most riotous Charlotte city council meeting ever recorded began with demands for the mayor and chief of police to resign, and ended up in threats of violence. From the Charlotte Observer:
A furious crowd of citizens criticized and often shouted down Charlotte City Council on Monday night, calling for resignations across the city and chanting, “Hands Down! Shoot Back!” and “No Justice, No Peace!” Mayor Jennifer Roberts, who allowed people to speak for two hours, repeatedly had to stop the meeting, pleading for quiet. Sometimes the crowd quieted to allow people to speak. At other times, her requests were met with heckles and chants for justice. Even after the meeting, protesters gathered in the lobby of the Government Center. More than 20 protesters sat down after one young man urged them to “occupy this space.” Dozens more stood, chanted and demanded a federal investigation into the shooting.I'm cringing and laughing at the same time. The prospect of more mob violence and assaults on the police is sickening. But Mayor Jennifer Roberts is getting what she deserves. Her first words in the debate for mayor were, "Black lives matter," spoken in that self-congratulating, pompous tone one associates with those who think they're the intellectual and moral superiors of the rest of us. It was Roberts who backed the in-your-face LGBT ordinance bestowing the "right" of self-named "transexuals" to violate traditional mores and use the bathroom of their choice. If the radical Mayor Roberts can't please the BLM extremists, who can? This is just the latest example of how radicalism is self-defeating. From the Terror of the French Revolution, to the bloody Cultural Revolution of Maoist China, all radical movements eventually implode. The reason is simple: They're never happy. How do you know when you've achieved equality, or social justice, or liberation? It's an unreachable goal, which is what makes it so attractive to proponents who know they can continue to expand their power in the pursuit of the unobtainable. Pat Buchanan offers this chilling observation of where we're headed:
Celebrating the racial diversity of the Charlotte protesters last week, William Barber II, chairman of the North Carolina NAACP, proudly proclaimed, “This is what democracy looks like.” Well, if Barber is right, so, too, was John Adams, who warned us that “democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide.” Consider what the protesters, who, exults Barber, “show us a way forward to peace and justice,” accomplished. In the first two nights of rioting, the mob injured a dozen cops, beat white people, smashed and looted stores, blocked traffic, shut down interstate highways, got one person shot and killed, and forced the call-up of state troopers and National Guard to rescue an embattled Charlotte police force.The racial agitators who stormed Charlotte streets and its council chambers demand MORE chaos. Will they get what they want?

As if we didn't have enough far-left organizations to deal with, a new one has sprung up. A group calling itself Charlotte Uprising has joined Black Lives Matter protesters. It describes itself as "a coalition of community members, local and state organizers committed to ensuring the safety of their communities, and advocating for police accountability, transparency and social and economic equity." In other words, it's another band of agitators that wants to exploit the recent violence in Charlotte to push socialism. Check out Charlotte Uprising's official statement:
On Tuesday, our brother and neighbor Keith Lamont Scott was killed by Charlotte police. He was sitting in his car, reading a book, and waiting for his son to come home on the school bus. We believe he was profiled and killed by police, and that CMPD is not telling the truth about his murder. Tuesday night, Charlotte police attacked a grieving community with riot police and tear gas. Wednesday night, Charlotte police fired into a crowd, seriously injuring a protestor [sic] and inflaming our grief. Now, our city is occupied by the National Guard and we are in a State of EmergencyWow. So many lies. We know Scott had a gun. The protester who was shot Wednesday died, and it was NOT a police officer who fired the shot, but Rayquan Borum, a black, who has been arrested for murder. He has since admitted his guilt. Now you're thinking, "That official statement is the most lunatic statement I've ever read!" That's because you haven't seen Charlotte Uprising's demands. These demands include: 3. THE DEFUNDING OF THE POLICE DEPARTMENT (2017 Budget: $246,644,617) AND THE REDIRECTION OF THOSE RESOURCES TO THE NEEDS OF OUR COMMUNITIES (INCLUDING RESOURCES FOR JOBS PROGRAMS, AFFORDABLE QUALITY HOUSING, TRANSPORTATION, HOLISTIC HEALTH AND QUALITY SCHOOLS) 6. THE IMMEDIATE AND UNCONDITIONAL RELEASE OF ALL THOSE ARRESTED IN CONNECTION WITH THE UPRISING RESULTING FROM THE KILLING OF KEITH L. SCOTT & THE DROPPING OF ALL CHARGES 7. THE RELEASE OF ALL THE NAMES OF THE OFFICERS INVOLVED IN THE KILLING OF KEITH L. SCOTT TO THE PUBLIC FOLLOWED BY THEIR FIRING, ARREST AND PROSECUTION 8. REPARATIONS FOR THE FAMILY OF KEITH L. SCOTT AND ALL VICTIMS OF POLICE VIOLENCE AS WELL AS THE FAMILIES OF THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN KILLED Wow. After all, who needs a police force? Let's spend that money on MORE welfare instead. Yeah, that'll make things better. Look how much good it's done so far. And, yes, FREEDOM FOR RAYQUAN BORUM!

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.”

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.

"The whole idea behind the “New Socialist Man” is to reengineer human nature to cut his inherited ties.

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?
Throughout Europe, people have had enough of their governments' open borders agenda. Nowhere is this more evident than tiny Denmark:
Johnny Christensen, a stout and silver-whiskered retired bank employee, always thought of himself as sympathetic to people fleeing war and welcoming to immigrants. But after more than 36,000 mostly Muslim asylum seekers poured into Denmark over the past two years, Mr. Christensen, 65, said, “I’ve become a racist.” He believes these new migrants are draining Denmark’s cherished social-welfare system but failing to adapt to its customs. “Just kick them out,” he said, unleashing a mighty kick at an imaginary target on a suburban sidewalk. “These Muslims want to keep their own culture, but we have our own rules here and everyone must follow them.”It's encouraging to see ordinary folks stand up to the traitors who've betrayed their own people in the name of globalism. But I think it's a mistake to submit to the left's terminology. "Racist" is a Marxist term designed to disparage what is actually patriotism. When we use that word, we legitimize the Marxist worldview. What's happening in Denmark is nothing new. We're territorial beings hardwired to protect our own and repulse outsiders. Throughout history, the sudden appearance of invaders on one's home soil has triggered defensive impulses in even the most accommodating and mild-mannered. That's happening throughout the West, and all I can say is it's about time.

DC's plan to elect a new, more pliable people, is proceeding right along. From Judicial Watch:
Months after the Obama administration spent $19 million to register new immigrant voters that will likely support Democrats in November, it’s dedicating an additional $10 million in a final push as the presidential election approaches. The money is distributed by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the Homeland Security agency that oversees lawful immigration, to organizations that help enhance pathways to naturalization by offering immigrants free citizenship instruction, English, U.S. history and civics courses. Officially, they’re known as “citizenship integration grants.”

I didn't believe the above statement until I saw this video. Wow. Be sure to catch his SJW-style meltdown at 3:48, when he jumps down the throat of the reporter who asked about illegal immigrants. Facts don't matter to this gooney bird. And to think I considered supporting him.
Not because of who he is, but because of the arrogant, bloody regime he represents. It isn't just Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte openly showing disgust with Obama. As the DC Empire fades into irrelevance, the world is focusing on new coalitions with rising powers. From CNN:
President Barack Obama bade farewell to G20 leaders in Hangzhou, China, on Monday by reminding them they're living in "turbulent" times -- and he wasn't kidding. His valedictory Asia tour, which moved on to Laos later in the day, is unfolding amid diplomatic slights and great power rivalries that reflect the unstable nature of the world Obama will bequeath to his successor in January. The controversies reflect the way international politics is now a stew of many competing, rising or resurgent powers that see fewer reasons to simply fall into line behind the United States than was the case following World War II and the Cold War. Obama is not only confronting regimes in Russia, China and North Korea that are at times openly hostile to Washington -- or at least willing to make clear they don't want to play by its rules -- but over the long weekend, he got headaches from allies as well, notably Turkey and the Philippines.The American Century -- which was nothing more than the hegemony of the financial and industrial powers of the Northeast over the rest of the world -- is over. Good riddance.

If you had any illusions the DC Empire still retains any of the respect it once commanded, check out this declaration from the president of the Philippines:
Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte tore into President Obama with an obscenity on Monday, leading the White House to cancel an upcoming meeting with Duterte. "Who does he think he is? I am no American puppet. I am the president of a sovereign country and I am not answerable to anyone except the Filipino people," Duterte scoffed in a speech Monday. "Son of a bitch, I will swear at you."No respect at home. No respect abroad. How much longer can this overgrown mistake of history limp along?
Yoohoo, lefties! Better pay attention to this story from France:
Writer Ghislain Gilberti and his son were savagely attacked on Saturday by a group of men shouting “filthy white”, seemingly Islamists enraged by one of his novels, police in France have heard. Mr Gilbert and his 12-year-old son were attacked in Belfort, France on Saturday following harassment and attempted break-ins. Though an active antifascist, the writer and his family have received death threats from Salafists displeased that the prologue title of the novelist’s bestseller is “jihad”. Police are investigating after Mr Gilberti was taken to hospital with a broken arm by firemen, following a reported street attack by Salafist Muslims.That's even more heartwarming than Frau Merkel suffering a "stinging defeat" in her home district.
federal power grabs. Little wonder, then, that he wants elections nationalized and placed under the control of his department:
Homeland Security officials are considering declaring the upcoming election a "critical infrastructure," so the group can take control of security over the elections the same way it has over Wall Street and the electric power grid. Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said, "We should carefully consider whether our election system, our election process, is critical infrastructure like the financial sector, like the power grid. There's a vital national interest in our process."Oh, yes. As we all know, it's not who votes that matters, but who counts the votes. Funny thing: Liberals and other big-government apologists assure us there's no need for voter ID laws because there's no significant vote fraud threat. Yet there's this sudden need for federal takeover of elections because our precious right to vote might be threatened by -- something. Yeah. Funny.

The Alternative for Germany party has roared onto the German political scene. What's their alternative? Survival rather than suicide. Looks like Germans aren't ready to self-immolate. Frau Merkel just got a stern rebuke in her home district:
German Chancellor Angela Merkel's Christian Democrats were beaten into third place by the anti-immigrant and anti-Islam Alternative for Germany (AfD) party in a north-eastern state election on Sunday, TV exit polls showed. In a stinging defeat for Merkel in her home district that could weaken her chances of a fourth term in next year's federal elections, the upstart AfD took 21.9 percent of the vote behind the center-left Social Democrats (SPD) in their first election in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern by campaigning hard against the chancellor's policies on refugees, according to a projection by ARD TV at 1.15 p.m. ET."Stinging defeat" for Merkel. I like the sound of that.
Mark Z. Barabak at the Los Angeles Times fairly cackles with glee at the growing racial divide in America. With Third-World immigration overturning long-time demographic balances, and with Blacks constantly being egged on to blame Whites for all ills, the divide Barabak celebrates is making itself felt in the ongoing presidential race:
Over the last few elections, several states that once favored Republicans — Nevada and Colorado in the West and Virginia and North Carolina in the Southeast — have moved Democrats' way, owing in large part to the rising influence of nonwhite voters. Georgia has been expected to follow that pattern within the next decade or so as the political clout of the state's growing black, Latino and Asian populations increases. But many, Democrat and Republican alike, believe Trump could hasten that timetable.Now let's see if I have this straight: The mainstream media assures us race doesn't really exist. But when it tilts the scales of political power toward its friends and supporters, race is the determining factor of modern life. My head hurts.

The shock troops of the American Cultural Revolution have taken the next logical step in implementing their totalitarian agenda. From the Daily Mail:
Students at Rutgers University have been advised to use language that is 'kind' and 'necessary' and avoid offensive terms such as 'retarded' and 'that's so ghetto' so that they don't commit 'microaggressions'. A bulletin board, titled 'Language Matters: Think', has been put on display in at least one hall of residence on the campus, in New Brunswick, New Jersey, telling them to question whether their choice of words is 'true' and 'helpful'. Failure to follow the guidelines could give rise to microaggressions - 'little things that have a big impact' - which fall into three categories: microassaults, microinsults and microinvalidations.So much for the pretence that political correctness aims to liberate anyone. Its actual goal is to destroy society, isolate the individual, and raze the existing social and political order so it can be rebuilt according to an anti-human, egalitarian agenda. George Orwell saw this coming in 1984: "The purpose of Newspeak was not only to provide a medium of expression for the world-view and mental habits proper to the devotees of IngSoc, but to make all other modes of thought impossible."
How stupid are we? Guess we'll find out in November when voters decide if they believe this story from Hillary Clinton:
“Clinton did not recall receiving any emails she thought should not have been on an unclassified system,” reads a summary of the FBI’s findings from July. “She relied on State officials to use their judgment when emailing her and could not recall anyone raising concerns with her regarding the sensitivity of the information she received at her email address.” As Comey said before, three email chains with Clinton included at least one paragraph marked with a “(C),” indicating the paragraph contained confidential material. “Clinton stated she did not know what the ‘(C)’ meant at the beginning of the paragraphs and speculated it was referencing paragraphs marked in alphabetical order,” according to the FBI summary.She didn't know what the big "C" meant. The Secretary of State. Riiiiiight. As president, will she be unclear what the big red button on the football does? One way is to push it and see what happens.
That's the headline. As a reporter in training in the mainstream media, your assignment is to inform a mindless public what motivated the shooter. Refer to the following diagram:
From MoonbatteryYep. That fits the narrative.

Al Benson Jr. wonders if we can expect a clean election from the District of Corruption. And in light of the dirty tricks the DNC played during the primary battles between Hillary and poor Bernie Sanders, Al might just have a point.

There's a "growing gang problem" in Charlotte! Some real tough hombres such as MS-13 and the Latin Kings are staking out sections of downtown and even suburban areas by "tagging" them with gang signs. What can we do? This calls for "experts," and by golly, they came up with exactly what we need: an anti-graffiti program:
Police are tracking gang graffiti in several Charlotte neighborhoods. Experts say there has been a surge in summer months, but now there is a way for community members to report it through a service called Code Enforcement. Police are able to take the graffiti reports, track and map where specific gangs operate. When you see the graffiti truck coming, it's there to clean up the streets. There are different crews in each quadrant of the city limits. Reports of graffiti can also be made by calling 311.I'm sure if these same experts were brought into your home to solve a burst pipe, they'd recommend you buy LOTS of sponges. Good grief.
It's amusing to hear politicians assure us of how wonderful our "democracy" is, as if the two-party system magically represented the will of the people, rather than its actual function of stifling debate and ensuring power remains in the hands of the ruling elite. This article by political consultant Peter Gemma lays out the cold, hard facts of American "democracy":
The establishment parties benefit from strict ballot access laws that make it difficult for alternative candidates to participate in elections. In order to get on the ballot, independent and third party candidates must meet a variety of byzantine state-specific filing requirements. Complex stipulations and regulations determine whether voters will be able to choose from a larger pool of parties and candidates. Unorthodox candidates must undergo bureaucratic and burdensome trials in all 50 states before they are permitted to run for office. And the laws have proven effective: no independent or third party presidential candidate has won an electoral vote in 48 years.The two wings of our single-party system have everything tied up nice and neat. I remember the heady days of the Southern Party, which I imagined (as did many others) would be a springboard for Southern self-determination. We didn't grasp the simple truth that the entire project was doomed from the start. The worst disaster hit the enthusiastic and unsuspecting activists in Florida, who took out ads announcing their new party, only to be hit by crippling financial penalties for having failed to file the proper disclosures. The other state parties came on with a bang, only to gradually sputter away into oblivion. Sad. But that's what happens when you play by Leviathan's rules -- Leviathan wins.
