Like frogs, who are incapable of detecting the smooth, slow approach of a snake because their eyes are only adapted to see the quick movements of flies, western nations seem unable to see the infiltration of their homelands by an insidious ideology whose sworn goal is to destabilize, out-populate, overwhelm, and conquer them.
There is no provision in the NATO treaty that permits throwing a member nation out of NATO. Turkey no longer makes a pretense of being a democratic state. As the Islamic state it has become, it cannot coexist with democracies. Last week, Erdogan blocked military exercises with NATO “partner” nations. He is evidently willing to continue to escalate his conflicts with NATO, believing there will be no response, because he has the EU over a barrel on the refugee issue.
An attacker – now named as 52-year-old Khalid Masood – killed two pedestrians and injured around 40 other people as he mowed down members of the public with a car on Westminster Bridge at about 2:40pm, before crashing into the railings in front of Parliament. Bursting through the gate to the Palace of Westminster, he stabbed unarmed Pc Keith Palmer, 48, before being shot dead by armed officers.
It finally ends today. With the peaceful transfer of power in Washington from Barack Obama to Donald Trump, what might be described as our long national nightmare will be over.
Left wing thugs are planning to sabotage President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration festivities. An umbrella organization, #DisruptJ20, also known as the DC Counter-Inaugural Welcoming Committee, describes its mission as “building the framework needed for mass protests to shut down the inauguration of Donald Trump and planning widespread direct actions to make that happen.” Such actions will include setting up blockades at checkpoints to prevent people from gaining access to the inauguration proceedings. In addition to attempting to shut down the inauguration ceremonies and any related celebrations, they are “planning to paralyze the city itself.”
Pardoning drug offenders by the thousand, many of them violent offenders and/or dealers. Commuting the sentence of a convicted traitor who released military secrets directly impinging on national security. Why does Obama do these baffling things? Is it because, as writer Ed Straker believes, “Obama decides everything based on identity politics. He doesn’t look at the nature of the crime; he looks at who he thinks committed it and how virtuous that person’s group is.”?
