Tackling ISIS: Brit Style

Another potential terrorist attack in London was prevented by good (if tech-spy overkill) policing. A foreign invader, whom I shall name “Abdul”, was tackled to the ground and arrested after being surveilled around Westminster.

The terror suspect who was detained with a ‘rucksack full of knives’ near Parliament square had been tracked on an intricate web of CCTV cameras by police and MI5.

Armed police ‘swarmed like bees’ on the bearded man just before 2.30pm after his concerned family reportedly alerted security services.

Witnesses said the man, who was wearing a tracksuit and trainers, was crossing Whitehall amid the usual crowds of tourists and political staff when a police car suddenly pulled up and officers confronted him, just five weeks after the Westminster terror attack killed that five people.

But, unbeknown to him, the suspect had been tailed from the moment he got off the Underground at St James’s Park – where he had travelled from east London – and headed towards Westminster.

While covert teams trailed him on the ground, a live feed was being sent to control rooms in New Scotland Yard and the MI5’s Thames House before they gave the order for them to swoop in.

“Abdul” smirks the smirk of Jihad. I have some ideas on how to wipe that off… Daily Mail.

Based on recent observations his mistake was the subway. One can’t jump a train onto the sidewalk. He should have rented an SUV or a truck instead. There’s a formula: drive the sidewalks first; stab and slash second, and finish with “Allahu Akbar!” immediately prior to being martyered. Hopefully he won’t get a chance to correct his errors.

Taqiyya this one away.

Hon. Dr. Ron Paul’s Interview with Julian Assange

, , , ,

Dr. Paul isn’t exactly Pamela Anderson but Assange seemed happy with the meeting.

Having blasted the Trump administration for their hyprocritical flip-flop from “loving WikiLeaks” to “arrest Assange,” Ron Paul made his feelings very clear on what this signals: “If we allow this president to declare war on those who tell the truth, we have only ourselves to blame.” Today he sits down with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange for a live interview…

“The CIA has been deeply humiliated as a result of our ongoing publications so this is a preemptive move by the CIA to try and discredit our publications and create a new category for Wikileaks and other national security reporters to strip them of First Amendment protections,”

The Goose that Laid the Golden News Egg

Sean Hannity, a.k.a. the last one standing, laments what may be the end of Fox News.

Yeah. That’s what happens when you fire all of your talent. Hannity was slated to be next but he did the unthinkable – he fought back. Ailes, the Judge, and Billy O are gone. Others too.

Fox will remain on the air. But it has already become as unwatchable and boring as CNN. Nearly as slanted too. Baier is watchable. Carlson may impress. The legs are still crossing…

Come to think of it, there is a lot of good talent floating around. Someone might want to round it up and start something new and better. They probably will.

That is all…

There is a Case Out There…

Bob Owens at Bearing Arms is excited about a case in federal court in Kansas, U.S. v. Cox, No. 6:15-cr-10150-JTM-01, 02 (D. Kan. 2016), that sort of threatens the imperial lock on firearms. Bob thinks this case could (possibly) undue all federal gun control laws.

The federal trial of a Kansas man for manufacturing and selling firearms and silencers without a federal license could very well turn out to be the pivotal case that not only challenges the constitutionality of the National Firearms Act of 1934, but also every federal firearms law ever passed in a battle that will determine whether it is the states or the federal government that has the constitutional right to pass gun laws.

Put bluntly, this could be huge.

Or it could not be huge. In fact, I am confident it will fail entirely. Cox’s Motion to Dismiss, stating all his Constitutional overreach claims, has been denied. In fact, Cox and his co-defendant have already been convicted. Their hope now, what little there is, rests either in the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals or the Supreme Court. In order words, they have no chance.

gun_laws

NRA-ILA.

This case would be important for several reasons if we still had a Constitutional Republic. We don’t. Every single federal gun control is undoubtedly unconstitutional. But the Constitution and the rule of law are now things of the ancient past.

The government simply does as it pleases, lawful or otherwise, and the people accept it  – or go to prison. Rights are now illusory unless they are non-rights asserted by non-citizens or terrorist invaders or banking corporations.

I may or may not look further into this matter. For now, just abide by the edicts of Washington or suffer as Cox does. Your state is no protection at all against Mordor.

Happy Thursday. I’m semi-lie today from Five Points Cigars in Athens. Nice place.

A near future generation of super-duper computers may (will) have the ability to not only read your thoughts and memories, but potentially delete them.

However, such devices are open to abuse on a frightening degree, as the academics made clear.

They warned that “malicious brain-hacking” and “hazardous uses of medical neurotechnology” could require a redefinition of the idea of mental integrity.

This technology represents a whole new level of “right think”. And it could have horrifying potential as a WMD, potential “wiping” brains clean like hard drives. No thoughts at all. The good news is that scientists figure most modern Americans literally have nothing to lose…

Conservatives: You’re Being Played, Again, As Always

Tags

, , , , ,

Among other social designs, “liberals” and many Democrats want to kill off future native-born Americans while simultaneously importing incompatible “replacement” citizens. They call it “choice” and “diversity”. “Conservatives” and the sad lot of the GOP say … say … they oppose these things.

At campaign rallies they claim they will halt the flow of illegals and terrorists into the country. They say they will stop wasting tax dollars on Rehashed Nazi Eugenics Inc. Planned Parenthood. Then they sweep to power and something funny, something fishy happens.

Now, Congress faces an April 28 deadline to pass a new government funding bill.

There is currently no talk that it will include language to prohibit funding of Planned Parenthood.

But there is talk that it will not include the language that President Trump has requested to provide $1.4 billion to begin his project to build “a great, great wall on our southern border.”

The Republican House can pass and send to the Republican Senate a bill that funds the border wall but not Planned Parenthood. Or they can pass one that funds Planned Parenthood but not the border wall.

The former course of action would fulfill the campaign promises that got their president elected. The latter would appease congressional Democrats and the liberal press.

So, which will it be?

Is there any doubt, at all, about that?

If you still believe anything the Republicans say, do realize that your team isn’t yours at all. They’re just one squad of the uniparty team, in business for themselves and their owners. None of them care anything about you.

That’s why they spy on you. (They’re recording you reading this right now). That’s why they have destroyed your currency. That’s why they want freaks trolling around your daughters in the restroom. That’s why they have to constantly have wars to fight (well, for you to fight). That’s why they move Heaven and Earth to keep invaders moving into America, while keeping you from leaving (or returning).

This is what the allegiance and the voting have gotten you. They lie. You fall for it. Always. Odds are this will continue.

A Federal Judge in California ruled against the administration’s order that sanctuary cities either comply with the law or lose federal funding.

A federal judge on Tuesday blocked President Donald Trump’s attempt to withhold funding from “sanctuary cities” that do not cooperate with U.S. immigration officials, saying the president has no authority to attach new conditions to federal spending.

U.S. District Judge William Orrick issued the preliminary injunction in two lawsuits – one brought by the city of San Francisco, the other by Santa Clara County – against an executive order targeting communities that protect immigrants from deportation.

There may actually be some legitimacy to this ruling. The President might lack the authority to decide how earmarked monies are spent – a kind of late-term line item veto. It could be judicial overreach and interferrence. It could be both. I’ve looked into it as far as I think wise, especially considering there is a better and legal approach:

The local officials in these cities are committing felonies under 8 U.S.C. § 1324. Let them keep our tax dollars. Maybe they can buy some cigarettes in prison.

Fly Me Outrageous: More Lies About “Flying” Cars

Tags

,

Here we go again. And this story isn’t even about a flying car. It’s a flying …. motorbike? Jet ski?

CLEARLAKE, Calif. — On a recent afternoon, an aerospace engineer working for a small Silicon Valley company called Kitty Hawk piloted a flying car above a scenic lake about 100 miles north of San Francisco.

Kitty Hawk’s flying car, if you insisted on calling it a “car,” looked like something Luke Skywalker would have built out of spare parts. It was an open-seated, 220-pound contraption with room for one person, powered by eight battery-powered propellers that howled as loudly as a speedboat.

The tech industry, as we are often told, is fond of disrupting things, and lately the automakers have been a big target. Cars that use artificial intelligence to drive themselves, for example, have been in development for a few years and can be spotted on roads in a number of cities. And now, coming onto the radar screen, are flying machines that do not exactly look like your father’s Buick with wings.

Silicon Valley is on the case. Problem solved. Now you too can zip around, 15 feet off the ground, at 15 MPH. Without passengers. Or luggage. Or protection from the elements. For about five minutes. Best to do it over water. Wear a helmet. And, as always, “now” means some indeterminate time in the future.

I have to admit that this thing looks kind of cool, in a Daffy Duck in the 25th and 1/2 Century kind of way… (Remember his suit or wings or whatever?) And it is very impressive it actually works – slowly, lowly, and for a very short time.

The Bezos-Gates-Google-Apple, flying, toy drone, Duck Rogers go-cart! Coming to a dealer near you! Sometime. Sometime tomorrow… Next year. 2030. Maybe…

I’ll believe it when I fly it.

Today the French made history: First, they (you) pushed the ruling elites aside and voted for two relative independents. Second, and more important, they moved Marine Le Pen towards the May runoff election.

Le Pen vs. Macro, May 7, 2017

  • Far-right leader Marine Le Pen and independent centrist Emmanuel Macron have made it to the second round
  • Republican candidate Francois Fillon conceded after initial results showed he achieved 19.5 per cent of vote
  • Far-left leader Jean-Luc Melenchon refused to concede until final results of first-round vote announced
  • France’s Prime Minister, Bernard Cazeneuve, has called on voters to support Macron instead of Le Pen
  • This is the first time in 60 years none of France’s mainstream parties have entered the second round
  • Riots broke out in Nantes and Paris’ Place de la Bastille – the birthplace of the French Revolution

French voters turned their backs on the political establishment last night in round one of the presidential election.

Emmanuel Macron – an independent centrist – won first place ahead of National Front leader Marine Le Pen.

The result will have major implications for Britain and its departure from the EU.
Miss Le Pen wants to completely renegotiate France’s relationship with Brussels while Mr Macron wants closer links.

Macron is certainly an interesting character. Odds are he would make a much better president than Hollande. However, only Le Pen vows to tackle the hardest issues, including the one threatening to destroy Europe: unchecked invasion from the third world.

On May 7th, vote Le Pen! Save France!

AP / Daily Mail.

Aujourd’hui, les Français ont fait de l’histoire: d’abord, ils ont poussé les élites dirigeantes et ont voté pour deux indépendants relatifs. Deuxièmement, et plus important encore, ils ont déplacé Marine Le Pen vers l’élection de mai.

Le Pen vs. Macron, 7 mai 2017

  • Le leader d’extrême droite Marine Le Pen et le centriste indépendant Emmanuel Macron sont arrivés au deuxième tour
  • Le candidat républicain Francois Fillon a concédé après que les résultats initiaux aient révélé qu’il avait atteint 19,5% des voix
  • Le leader d’extrême gauche Jean-Luc Melenchon a refusé de concéder jusqu’à l’annonce des résultats définitifs du vote du premier tour
  • Le Premier ministre français, Bernard Cazeneuve, a invité les électeurs à soutenir Macron au lieu de Le Pen
  • C’est la première fois en 60 ans qu’aucun des partis principaux de la France n’est entré dans le deuxième tour
  • Des émeutes ont éclaté à Nantes et à la Place de la Bastille à Paris – lieu de naissance de la Révolution française
  • Les électeurs français ont tourné le dos à l’établissement politique hier soir au premier tour de l’élection présidentielle.

Emmanuel Macron – un centriste indépendant – a gagné la première place devant le leader du Front national Marine Le Pen.

Le résultat aura d’importantes implications pour la Grande-Bretagne et son départ de l’UE.

Miss Le Pen veut renégocier complètement les relations de France avec Bruxelles alors que M. Macron veut des liens plus étroits.

Macron est certainement un personnage intéressant. Les chances sont qu’il ferait un président beaucoup mieux que Hollande. Cependant, seul Le Pen s’engage à s’attaquer aux problèmes les plus difficiles, y compris celui qui menace de détruire l’Europe: une invasion non contrôlée du tiers monde.

Le 7 mai, votez Le Pen! Sauvez la France!

The Man Who Tried to Make America First Again

Tags

, , ,

Yesterday Politico ran an excellent expose on Pat Buchanan. Read it HERE. Do read it. I learned a few things I didn’t know about Pat even though I’ve been an admirer since at least 1992, to include supporting his 1996 Presidential bid.

Buchanan, for his part, feels both validated and vindicated. Long ago resigned to the reality that his policy views made him a pariah in the Republican Party—and stained him irrevocably with the ensuing accusations of racism, anti-Semitism and xenophobia—he has lived to see the GOP come around to Buchananism and the country send its direct descendant to the White House.

“I was elated, delighted that Trump picked up on the exact issues on which I challenged Bush,” he tells me. “And then he goes and uses my slogan? It just doesn’t get any better than this.” Buchanan, who has published such books as The Death of the West, State of Emergency, Day of Reckoning and Suicide of a Superpower, admits that November’s election result “gave me hope” for the first time in recent memory.

But none of this means he’s suddenly bullish about America’s future. Buchanan says he has “always been a pessimist,” and despite Trump’s conquest, two things continue to color his dark forecast for the nation. First, Buchanan harbors deep concerns over whether Trump, with his off-topic tweeting and pointless fight-picking, has the requisite focus and discipline to execute his nationalist agenda—especially over the opposition of a media-establishment complex bent on his destruction. Second, even if Trump delivers on the loftiest of his promises, Buchanan fears it will be too little, too late. Sweeping change was needed 25 years ago, he says, before thousands of factories vanished due to the North American Free Trade Agreement, before millions of illegal immigrants entered the country, before trillions of dollars were squandered on regime change and nation-building.

Things would have worked out better had he made it to the White House in 1993, or 1997, or even 2001. Time was running out, then, and had expired by January of 2009. As the article notes, or Pat noted, the time for radical change was then, rather than now. The good news is that we can still gain a little Buchananism every week at http://buchanan.org/blog/.

I also can’t help but note that this subject article reads almost like a lifetime achievement piece or an obituary. I am not sure if it more resembles an epitaph for Pat or one for the Old Republic. It could be both.

I shared his uncharacteristic optimism about Trump last year as well as his current, well-founded reservations. That party to which he devoted so much attention continues to flounder, even in its victories. Just yesterday, also: Ryan: Focus is on keeping government open, not healthcare. Yes, we must keep Mordor up and running at all costs (and those are high). Of they try hard enough they may yet be able to wield the Ring of Power.

Back to Pat B.: he owns and displays a rare replica of Robert E. Lee’s 1851 Colt Navy revolver. That’s pretty cool.
