***I really hope they didn’t arrest the new amerikan while he was driving his pregnant wife to the hospital.***
Following attacks, Israel eases (already liberal) gun controls.
“Many civilians saved lives during attacks and, in an age of ‘lone-wolf terror’, the more trained civilians carrying arms, the higher the chances of thwarting attacks and minimising casualties,” Erdan said in a statement.
Under the new regulations, any Israeli who had extensive infantry combat training can apply for a gun licence.
Most Jewish Israelis must complete obligatory military service after they turn 18, but only a minority receive such training.
Police volunteers, medics and former military officers will also be eligible, the statement said.
Prior to the change, the main criterion for a permit — besides professions such as hunter or diamond merchant — was one’s place of residence.
Settlers or other Israelis working in the occupied West Bank tend to receive licences. It is common to see Israeli settlers in remote West Bank outposts openly carrying rifles.
Civilians saving lives. Why does that sound familiar?
They could try this in London if ever they tire of Khan, appeasement, and cultural suicide.
Not to sound all Al Gore, but we only have a few years to head off the robot apocalypse.
The Russian news (all fake, huh?) gave us the “creepy” droid seen stalking around a parking lot.
A video has emerged on Twitter showing a faceless yet worryingly realistic humanoid robot walking in what looks like a perfectly mundane courtyard. The trip down the uncanny valley caused some to proclaim an impending apocalypse.
The clip shows the stoop-backed robot making its way past the cameraman, with ominous music playing in the background. Its black and orange limbs, hi-tech-looking protrusions along its spine, and its hollowed out head all lend to the realism, bringing to mind Boston Dynamics’ latest scary creations. But then the camera zooms in on its face plate, and that’s where you might feel a slight urge to scream and run, because set in the near-featureless white mask are two moving, human-like eyes.
Naturally, some users’ reaction was “WE ARE ALL GOING TO DIE.”
Yeah, probably, but not from that goofy-looking thing. Death is more likely from this one (also from Putin Landia):
Russia has unveiled a terrifying 4.5-tonne bulletproof robot that can walk and hold weapons in its giant claws – and looks straight out of sci-fi films like Avatar and Robocop.
The Avatar-style ‘bot was revealed by Kalashnikov at the Army 2018 Fair just outside Moscow, as a ‘demonstration of what is to come.’
The robot can walk and has space in a cabin for people to sit and operate the robot from inside and can hold and move objects with its claws, including weapons.
The pilots are protected from bullets, debris and any other dangerous object behind the armoured glass and metal encasement.
The gold robot, which has been called Igorek, is still under construction and the creators do not wish to reveal all its characteristics until they have finished.
I’m good with the current reveal. 4.5 tons, claws, weapons, made by Kalashnikov, bulletproof … that’s more than enough. Any engineers reading this, feel free to leave comments about possible soft points on this monster. What minimum caliber do we need? (I’m thinking concentrated fire on the windshield or just fire [napalm] on the whole body).
Coming to a future near you. Mirror.
Defacing the memory of an unnamed young soldier in the name of globalist idiocy. Truly a war on the idea of civilization itself.
Protesters toppled the Silent Sam Confederate statue on the campus of UNC-Chapel Hill on Monday night.
The monument was ripped down after 9:15 p.m. Earlier in the evening, protesters covered the statue with tall, gray banners, erecting “an alternative monument” that said, in part, “For a world without white supremacy.”
Protesters were apparently working behind the covering with ropes to bring the statue down, which happened more than two hours into a rally. It fell with a loud clanging sound, and the crowd erupted in cheers.
The company of the violent and the ignorant.
If these fools think Silent Sam represented(s) “white supremacy,” then what of the concept of the university? And representative government? Free markets? Polyester? Steel? Concrete? Electricity? America? If they were honest and wished to be free from all this “oppression,” then they would remove themselves from our midst and relocate to some cave in the woods (far, far away). As is I think they’ll happily rip the rest down too if allowed.
This strange creature is a hero:
Speaking of heroes: thanks to the brave men and women of law enforcement who stood by and watched the destruction. They’ll come for you too someday.
My earlier thoughts (from the beach) about this monumental problem:
Johnny Horton’s thoughts:
Some are with you, Sam.
For what its worth, every honest criminal defense attorney knows exactly what Trump and Guiliani meant by their “baffling” incrimination statements. It’s true.
Mueller has been known to use such tactics before. It’s his job.
Don’t talk. Even if you’re the President.
Came yesterday, Monday, August 20, 2018, addressing the Pennsylvania abuse report. Its kind of vague, almost watery, and lacks reference to Matthew 18:6, but it is a start.
“If one member suffers, all suffer together with it” (1 Cor 12:26). These words of Saint Paul forcefully echo in my heart as I acknowledge once more the suffering endured by many minors due to sexual abuse, the abuse of power and the abuse of conscience perpetrated by a significant number of clerics and consecrated persons. Crimes that inflict deep wounds of pain and powerlessness, primarily among the victims, but also in their family members and in the larger community of believers and nonbelievers alike. Looking back to the past, no effort to beg pardon and to seek to repair the harm done will ever be sufficient. Looking ahead to the future, no effort must be spared to create a culture able to prevent such situations from happening, but also to prevent the possibility of their being covered up and perpetuated. The pain of the victims and their families is also our pain, and so it is urgent that we once more reaffirm our commitment to ensure the protection of minors and of vulnerable adults.
Much more on this later in the week via my TPC column. That, here, then.
More pressure for the West.
Watch and see how well constitutional protections hold up in South Africa.
White landowners prepare to flee.
And they don’t even need to “reform” the law to seize the land, they just do it – NOW.
THE South African government has begun the process of seizing land from white farmers.
Local newspaper City Press reports two game farms in the northern province of Limpopo are the first to be targeted for unilateral seizure after negotiations with the owners to purchase the properties stalled.
While the government says it intends to pay, owners Akkerland Boerdery wanted 200 million rand ($18.7 million) for the land — they’re being offered just 20 million rand ($1.87 million).
“Notice is hereby given that a terrain inspection will be held on the farms on April 5, 2018 at 10am in order to conduct an audit of the assets and a handover of the farm’s keys to the state,” a letter sent to the owners earlier this year said.
Akkerland Boerdery obtained an urgent injunction to prevent eviction until a court had ruled on the issue, but the Department of Rural Development and Land Affairs is opposing the application.
“What makes the Akkerland case unique is that they apparently were not given the opportunity to first dispute the claim in court, as the law requires,” AgriSA union spokeswoman Annelize Crosby told the paper.
Imagine that, illegal actions in defiance of the existing law. One also might wonder where all the virtuous know-it-alls of the 1980’s are now. Remember them and apartheid? They’re absent, of course, at the moment. But they will chime in, heavily, in around five years when the famine and chaos hit SA hard. Will they play Sun City???
And this is not a good trend.
One in four adults reported they have a disability that impacts major life activities with the most dominant one affecting mobility, according to a report issued Thursday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
In the CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, data were studied from the 2016 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System. This is the first CDC report of the percentage of adults across six disability types: mobility, cognition, hearing, vision, independent living and self-care.
“At some point in their lives, most people will either have a disability or know someone who has a one,” Dr. Coleen Boyle, director of CDC’s National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities, said in a press release. “Learning more about people with disabilities in the United States can help us better understand and meet their health needs.”
And much of this, so much, is preventable. Keep popping the pills, watching the TeeVee, and eating everything in site. Will work out (no pun…) just fine.
More on my two-part method for halting terror in the West. The following would fall under the “not allowing them in HERE” part.
The U.S. Dept of Justice detained ISIS fighter Omar Ameen in Sacramento, California, yesterday (full pdf below) pending extradition back to Iraq on murder charges. Incredibly Ameen gained State Department entry into the U.S. through the refugee system.
Despite the claims of the Obama administration, Omar Ameen’s ability to enter the United States is a clear example of weaknesses within the refugee process and lies told by former administration officials about the security therein.
Woman or child??
