This-n-that

A few scattered thoughts prompted by recent reading…

1)  Seen online: “Next time we have a peaceful transfer of power, can there be less of it to transfer, please?”  Hear, hear!

2)  God continues to have fun with the Goreacle:

Park City is bracing for a slew of snow at Sundance Film Festival.

The festival locale sank to below-freezing temperatures ahead of Thursday’s opening-night film An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, Al Gore’s climate-change follow-up to 2006’s An Inconvenient Truth.

It’s sure “inconvenient” to keep having all those cold-weather events show up every time he tries to peddle global warming (oh, wait: now it’s just called “climate change.” How… convenient.)

3)  The corporate media, led by CNN, continues its increasingly brazen lying in order to imply Trump has less support than he does.  Click this link, then this one.  This is just another petty and underhanded way to try to make Trump’s administration seem illegitimate.  So for the record:

Hey, CNN: do you want to keep getting ignored at presidential news conferences?  Because this is how you keep getting ignored.  Here’s hoping this administration holds all press outlets accountable for every propaganda twist they try to pull.  This goes for Fox News as well, whose own narrative-pushing I have direct experience with.

4)  Remember when hundreds of protestors were arrested at Obama’s first inaugural, and how conservative activists smashed storefronts and generally made a destructive nuisance of themselves?  Yeah, me neither.  It occurs to me that if these people are so violently unhappy with the country they live in, it would be a simple matter after arresting them to revoke their citizenship and give them a one-way ticket to wherever they believe things are better.  Might be a rude wakeup.  These people are so stupid they don’t realize their antics are pushing many Americans (including me) to farther political extremes than they’d ordinarily go.  Polite society has tolerated this sort of thing for so long that I fear it will take a sustained, violent crackdown to re-establish civic norms.

These antics are a symptom of what got Trump elected.  If they continue, they’re simply helping his reelection campaign from Day One.

Who let the dogs out?

That would be Angela Merkel and her fellow open borders/globalist allies:

In the early hours of January 1, around 90 women were allegedly robbed, threatened, or sexually molested at the New Year’s celebrations outside Cologne’s cathedral by young, mostly drunk, men – many of whom were described as being of “Arab or North African origin.” One rape was also reported to police.

And it’s not just Germany witnessing these new developments at the same time they are swamped by one of the largest mass migrations in history — one that has been going on for some time, but reached ludicrous speed this past year:

It was back in 1975 that the Swedish parliament decided that the country should become multicultural. The population then stood at eight million — virtually all ethnic Swedes — but its people had a proud history of offering help to outsiders…

But today Sweden faces uncomfortable questions about the kind of society it wants, or can afford, to be. At 16 per cent, the foreign-born proportion of its population is already higher than that of not only Germany and Great Britain, but also the U.S.   Since 1975, violent crime and rapes, including gang rapes, have risen to an extraordinary high level (in politically correct Sweden official statistics do not give the ethnic background of attackers.)

 And in Norway, there is now an effort to teach newcomers that it’s not OK to rape and assault women (something they apparently didn’t learn in their native countries):

The goal is that participants will “at least know the difference between right and wrong,” said Nina Machibya, the Sandnes center’s manager.

But wait!  I thought all cultures were supposed to be equal.  I thought that notions of right and wrong were relative.  What’s going on here, besides people finally being “mugged by reality?”

If we’re finally admitting there is a “right” and a “wrong,” can we agree it’s wrong to dispossess Europeans (and Americans) of their countries in favor of an influx of foreigners, many of whom plunder and pillage like modern-day Vandals?

The responses of our (cough) ‘leaders’ are telling.  The Mayor of Cologne suggests women need a code of conduct to cut down on the assaults (isn’t that what feminists in America call ‘victim blaming?’).  The President of the United States pursues his higher priority of disarming the citizenry.  And heads of state across Europe scold their populations not to connect rising terrorism and lawlessness with the ongoing influx of hundreds of thousands of aliens.  Why, that would be realistic racist.

We need new leaders.  We need closed borders.  We need an armed citizenry.  And above all, we need a renewed commitment to the faith, culture and values that made the West great — including a willingness to defend them and an understanding that despite all the multicultural propaganda, they are NOT universally recognized.  We may not be imposing these standards on others abroad anymore, but we can certainly maintain them at home — provided we can override the intentions of the traitors and quislings among us.
