Is America Still a Nation? -A Brief Examination in Light of the Ongoing French Rébellion-
But, just a part, the spark maybe. The war raging in the streets in France is the product of popular anger over many things. Chief among them is the early tenure of the bankster batman and Oedipus Rex weirdo, Emmanuel Macron.
Macron, in Argentina for a G20 summit, said he would convene ministers to discuss the crisis upon his return on Sunday. Prime Minister Edouard Philippe cancelled a trip to Poland.
“We are in a state of insurrection, I’ve never seen anything like it,” said Jeanne d’Hauteserre, the mayor of Paris’ 8th district, near the Arc de Triomphe.
The popular rebellion erupted out of nowhere on Nov. 17 and has spread quickly via social media, with protesters blocking roads across France and impeding access to shopping malls, factories and some fuel depots.
On Saturday, some targeted the Arc de Triomphe, chanting “Macron Resign” and scrawling on the facade of the towering 19th-century arch: “The yellow vests will triumph.”
Addressing a news conference in Buenos Aires, Macron said no cause justified the looting of stores, attacks on the security forces or torching of property. The violence, he said, had nothing to do with the peaceful expression of legitimate grievances.
“I will always respect differences. I will always listen to opposition, but I will never accept violence,” Macron said.
Protesters smashed the windows of a newly opened flagship Apple Store and luxury boutiques of Chanel and Dior, where they daubed the slogan “Merry Mayhem” on a wooden board.
Close to the Place Vendome, Christmas trees decorating the streets were upended, piled in the middle of an avenue and set ablaze, prompting chanting from scores of protesters.
Order appeared to have been restored late in the evening, although small groups were still at odds with police near the Champs Elysees.
Authorities said violent far-right and far-left groups had infiltrated the yellow vests movement. Interior Minister Christophe Castaner said most of those arrested were regular protesters who had been egged on by the fringe groups.
The protests began as a backlash against Macron’s fuel tax hikes, but have tapped into a vein of deep dissatisfaction felt towards the 40-year-old’s economic reforms, which many voters feel favour the wealthy and big business.
Yeah. Someone mentioned something about those “reforms” around the last election: “Maybe once a Rothschild servant isn’t always.” Maybe it is.
The good news is that, in the face of this leaderless uprising of the real French people, Oedipus sits at what? a 20% approval rating. There’s mild hope he could depart early. Hope for the future.
Vous auriez voté Le Pen.
Oedipus with some nouveau French supporters.
Rather than import further ruin to civilization, one may simply enjoy the manifest blessings of “diversity” where it belongs.
John Chau, 27, had taken a boat ride with local fishermen before venturing alone in a canoe to the remote North Sentinel Island where the indigenous people live cut off completely from the outside world.
As soon as he set foot on the island, Chau found himself facing a flurry of arrows, official sources told AFP.
Contact with several tribes on the islands, set deep in the Indian Ocean, is illegal in a bid to protect their indigenous way of life and shield them from diseases.
See. Even SJW’s must be happy with this – laws still being broken and all.
Open borders kill countries, with the more civilized recipients falling victim to the less civilized incomers. Even first world to first world can have problems. Third world to first world is a problem. Robert Ringer gets past the theory:
All good theoretical stuff, but, unfortunately, reality has a way of overwhelming theory, and the dominant reality of our age is that a significant number of the earth’s inhabitants believe they have a right to violate your freedom. I’m not just talking about political thugs and bureaucrats, but their envy-crazed followers as well. Thus, the reality of illegal immigration is that it has the potential to destroy a civilized country.
Any undocumented person arriving at any border of the United States, regardless of age, sex, or country of origin, must immediately be refused entry. No courts involved. End of discussion.
Either we take such an unyielding stance or, by default, meekly submit to the dissolution of the United States of America. History teaches us that empires fall apart when their rulers and their citizens become soft, and Americans have become very soft. Now, thankfully, we are being forced to make a choice, and for that I must thank the organizers of the fake caravans. What shall it be?
America is either a country or it is not.
UPDATE: My weekly email to President Trump:
Dear President Trump:
Congratulations, as usual, for your unswerving dedication to America, the Posterity of the Constitution, and freedom.
You were correct to deem the current illegal migrant “caravan” (and all others) a “national emergency.” It is not a caravan. It is an invasion column – war conducted under the guise of globalist immigration.
As such, I would recommend treating it as a hostile military incursion. Repel it with military force. Do not allow another single invader into the United States. Consider strongly removing those already here. And, consider most strongly removing that enemy within, that which constantly encourages and suborns the invasion and the concurrent destruction.
You know the timing and the landscape better than I but I suspect the time is near to take hard action against our domestic enemy combatants. Please do so.
Thank you, as always, for all you do.
Now in France, if you notice the rot, then you’re a nut.
You’ll recall that earlier this year Should Have Been President Marine Le Pen was charged with crimes for verbally protesting the destruction of Western Civilization. Her docketing somehow failed to stem the violent tide she was Tweeting about.
No mind. It’s her mind that matters. She’s been ordered to undergo a psych eval…
Marine Le Pen, the leader of the French far right has been left shocked and furious after a court ordered her to be examined by a psychiatrist to determine if she “is capable of understanding remarks and answering questions”.
Le Pen, who is head of the former National Front party – now National Rally (Rassemblement National) revealed on Twitter her shock and anger at being ordered to undertake a psychiatric assessment.
The unusual summoning is in relation to Le Pen having tweeted out gruesome propaganda images from terror group Isis that showed the bodies of people having been executed by the so-called Islamic State.
In March Le Pen was charged with circulating “violent messages that incite terrorism or pornography or seriously harm human dignity” and that can be viewed by a minor.
And as part of their investigation it appears magistrates in Nanterre near Paris have ordered Le Pen to visit a psychiatrist for an expert assessment.
I’m confident that all of America’s ardent supporters of free speech are already on this indignation. (I’ll withhold holding my breath).
Marine est la saine. Vous avez élu le mauvais candidat.
Russians, long oppressed by communism, seek a return to an honest and gentlemanly tradition: dueling:
The Russian Liberal Democratic party has drafted a bill allowing for official duels and detailing rules for such combat. The move comes after the head of the National Guard challenged an opposition figure to a fight over slander.
The motion, prepared and drafted by MP Sergey Ivanov states that a duel between Russian citizens should be possible – although it should by no means be deemed a normal way of settling scores.
“In recent times there is a tendency among civil servants to challenge citizens who express opinions that differ from the official point of view to duels. In order to systemize the main reasons of such challenges and the rules of actual duels we propose this bill,” the lawmaker wrote in the note attached with the draft.
The Russians are a different breed. I’m astounded that it’s the officials seeking to challenge the people. But it could easily go the other way – there. Here, there’s a reason our “leaders” are scared to death of such a prospect. It’s why they have routinely denied citizens the right to trial by combat. No, they’re headed in the opposite direction and taking us with them. Here’s a preview, from Venezuela, of what the future in America, with socialism for all and a “living wage,” will look like:
Nearly 40 percent of all Venezuelan stores have closed —some of them perhaps permanently —after the government of President Nicolas Maduro increased the minimum salary by nearly 3,500 percent in one fell swoop, according the National Council of Commerce and Services of Venezuela.
Many of the companies, which had been barely surviving the gradual collapse of the economy, saw the salary increase and other changes announced last month as the fatal blow in a series of policies that have been gradually strangling their businesses.
“These decisions are leading many business people to say, ‘No, I can’t do it any more,'” said Maria Carolina Uzcategui, president of the council.
The problem is that Venezuelan companies are being forced to sell at prices far below cost just as employee salaries are increasing 60 times, Uzcategui said.
What’s more, the regime has banned stores from increasing their prices to cover the salary increases, arguing that it is not necessary.
That’s literally a page from Atlas Shrugged. And it’s a page, a popular one, in the American socialist playbook.
If you’re young and love the West, consider the East.
Strange fiction begets stranger reality?
Building on the news that London has displaced New York in knife and gun murders (despite the gun control thing):
Hospital staff compare the situation in The Great Wen to that of an Afghan war zone.
The shock comments made Thursday morning come after two more men were killed overnight, a couple of days after another night of violence saw a boy, 16, stabbed to death and a 17-year-old girl shot in a “drive by”.
Wednesday night’s killings, both in Hackney, East London, brought the death toll from suspected murder in the capital to 50 so far this year, pulling away from New York City, which London overtook at the weekend.
Dr. Mark Griffiths, the lead surgeon at Barts Health NHS Trust in East London, said that knife and gun wounds had moved from a “niche” part of his job to a daily chunk of his workload, and a growing number of victims were “children”.
“Some of my military colleagues have described their practice here as similar to being at [Camp] Bastion,” Dr Griffiths told the Today programme on BBC Radio 4.
“We used to look after people in their twenties. Now people are often in their mid to late teens and children in school uniforms are being admitted under our care with knife and gun wounds.”
So, how’s that near total gun control working out, England? Gun wounds require guns just as civilization requires the civilized. Can’t have the one without the other.
The outlander Mayor finally responded to the rising, predictable violence:
“The Mayor is shocked and angered by the violent deaths on the streets of London this year.
“He is heartbroken that so many of those taken have been young lives – and his thoughts are with their friends and family at this difficult time.
“The safety of Londoners is his number one priority.
Anger and heartbreak are understandable. How could this all come as a shock to any cognizant individual?
Saaaaaaaafety… Maybe freedom should be the number one priority? Then, second, homogeneity? Somewhere along the way safety might take care of itself.
Nah. Ignore the guns. And certain factors demographic. Blame the knives. “Surrender your knife save a life!“ #knifecontrol.
It’s no longer possible to even make this crap up… Downtrend.
Something in all this reminded me of a very recent Christopher DeGroot piece at Taki’s Mag: The Education of America. Kind of fits (without need for a separate column…). One would think men would learn. They had better.
Get with the social justice, or else, says Larry “John Stewart Mill” Fink:
“Society is demanding that companies, both public and private, serve a social purpose,” Fink wrote. “To prosper over time, every company must not only deliver financial performance, but also show how it makes a positive contribution to society. Companies must benefit all of their stakeholders, including shareholders, employees, customers, and the communities in which they operate.”
Fink said BlackRock would ramp up its investor-stewardship initiative, started in 2011 to favor engaging with companies and their management over proxy voting. The stewardship team will double in size over the next three years under the new leadership of Barbara Novick, a vice chairman who helped found BlackRock, Fink said.
He posed some questions; so I, as CEO of perrinlovett.me (one of them there private companies), answer with:
What role do we play in the community?
My blog (mine, not BlackRock’s) is a town crier for the West and for cigar awareness.
How are we managing our impact on the environment?
In general, I’m not. However, as a digital service, I try to harm no trees. And I have that offer to adopt or foster the first polar bear I meet as it flees the
global warming climate change new ice age…
Are we working to create a diverse workforce?
No. Just trying to save some corner of civilization from it.
Are we adapting to technological change?
Actually thinking of reverting to a manual typewriter. Might need the polar bear’s input first. Can they talk?
Are we providing the retraining and opportunities that our employees and our business will need to adjust to an increasingly automated world?
I see your man-hating, child-maiming robots and AI. Bring ’em.
Are we using behavioral finance and other tools to prepare workers for retirement, so that they invest in a way that that will help them achieve their goals?
What, in the Name of God, is “behavioral finance?” Sounds like command and control communism to me. The bear will hate it.
I doubt these guys can even read, let alone type.
Mind your own business, Bub.
Trump set off a firestorm, yesterday, with comments, or a question (which he kind of disavows now) about where our immigrants come from. I thought the question articulate, if a bit vulgar, and if he asked it.
Anyway, the answer to this “why” is the Immigration and Naturalization Act of 1965, one of the most evil legislative items ever foisted upon the people. Vox Day on the origins and effects:
Ted Kennedy illustrates why third-generation immigrants should not ever be permitted to govern or even vote in his deceitful argument for the 1965 immigration act.
First, our cities will not be flooded with a million immigrants annually. Under the proposed bill, the present level of immigration remains substantially the same…
Secondly, the ethnic mix of this country will not be upset… Contrary to the charges in some quarters, [the bill] will not inundate America with immigrants from any one country or area, or the most populated and deprived nations of Africa and Asia…
In the final analysis, the ethnic pattern of immigration under the proposed measure is not expected to change as sharply as the critics seem to think… The bill will not flood our cities with immigrants. It will not upset the ethnic mix of our society. It will not relax the standards of admission. It will not cause American workers to lose their jobs.
They have to go back. They ALL have to go back. It is no longer up for debate. The post-1965 mass immigration policy was entirely based on lies and misrepresentations, and 50 years on it is clear that global migration has destroyed America, the largest invasion in human history has severely weakened the United States, and if a significant portion of the post-1965 immigrants and their descendants are not repatriated in the next decade, they will cause the complete collapse of the Union, violent ethnic conflict, and a civil war of unprecedented magnitude. At this point, the Yugoslav option may be the best possible outcome; the Czechoslovak option appears to be already beyond reach.
Listen to the warning of an American Indian. The dirt is not magic and it will not remain yours once you permit foreigners to settle on it. And rest assured that your descendants, if you have any that survive, will curse your incredible stupidity and short-sightedness, which is of epic historical magnitude.
The media, the UN, and other vehement anti-Westerners have taken the novel (never heard before!) approach of calling Trump a “racist” and a “Nazi.” Hmmm.
Now, other truths aside, here’s an examination of what passes for the white, European natives of modern America:
Yeah, read that again and ponder how much worse it could actually get. It can (and will) get worse, but Lordy…. ‘Murica…
