COVID-19 Observations #1

Having followed the development surrounding COVID-19 (a.k.a. the novel coronavirus) for weeks now, I feel I should start writing now to emphasise things I have learned and come to value.

First, there is the importance of context. Unless you are able contextualise a piece of information you can’t judge its value. A good example is the Diamond Princess cruise ship, the now well known incubator of COVID-19 moored near Yokohama, Japan: While many panicked about the apparent ease with which the virus infected people on board, I posited, as the Washington Post has now reported: “[the ship was] a vessel never designed as a medical quarantine facility.” It is therefore also no surprise that on a ship teeming with infected crew and passengers, many others would eventually be infected as well. Incidentally, did that repatriation plane have separate AC systems on either side of the plastic sheeting? (1)

Then there is the danger posed by idiots who, incapable of following simple instructions, endanger the life of innocent people. The passengers from the Westerdam cruise ship who disembarked in Cambodia are but one example. An even more idiotic one was the Chinese woman in London who despite blanket coverage of government advice endangered an A&E department at a local hospital where she arrived by taxi. As this came after yet more media coverage of the first UK super spreader, this made her more idiotic than those down in Brighton who, despite advice not to do so, went and endangered frontline health workers at their GP surgery. It is idiots like these who make me think that maybe the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is onto something when they forcibly arrest or detain people.

The most important thing to remember about this disease right now is that there is more we don’t know than what we do know. Those who do know or could find out the most easily, the CCP, are scared witless and aren’t being honest with the world because either way they go they’re in for hard times.

It is my sincere hope that those with influence and power will learn how foolish it is to rely on China as the world’s factory and only supplier and that it is effectively highly immoral to force the common people into consumerist illusions of wealth and prosperity by way of cheap goods and seemingly endless supplies of fiat money just so that they don’t have to participate in the common marathon of life. This is the dark side of globalism, a sort of worldwide socialist nightmare, where because of the alien nature of the 0.1% everyone will eventually suffer.

Thank goodness for all the supposed “far-right extremists” who are fed up and have begun to fight!

NHS funding

Below is a letter I just e-mailed to my MP. I find it disgusting that HM Government spends far more tax money on welfare and healthcare than defence at a time when we’re allegedly under grave threat from terrorism. Yes, I sent it through the leftist 38Degrees, but only for convenience’s sake.

Many believe the NHS needs more funding. Being of a more libertarian persuasion myself, however, I do not believe in additional taxation but of a decrease in wasteful spending instead. So I’m getting in touch to see if you could attend the debate on health and social care on Monday afternoon.

I know this is late notice, but it’s an important opportunity to start working on solutions for NHS and social care funding. Having recently received an overview of how much of my taxes is spent on welfare and healthcare, I would welcome advocacy for more balanced spending priorities. I do not believe it is right to spend disproportionately more on welfare than on defence at a time when the government claims we are under severe threat from terrorism.

I believe the government needs to be much more stringent in clamping down on NHS abuse by non-entitled persons such as tourists or high wealth residents. There also appears to be room for a reduction in coverage for non-essential procedures. NHS spending should be based on sound principles, not political expediency!

On the more Labour flavoured side, 38 Degrees have produced some research laying out 28 different policies that could help get the NHS the money it needs. They can be found here: https://link.38degrees.org.uk/HealthSocialCareFundingPolicy

If you aren’t able to attend the debate, please could you write to the Chancellor about how we can run the NHS more efficiently, or talk to your colleagues about the policies?

Thank you.

Fact-checking Jeff Berwick

Informed netizens will be familiar with Jeff Berwick, financial columnist and anarcho-capitalist podcaster, also known as the Dollar Vigilante. While I like much of his output a lot, he does have a habit of spreading half truths. Today I can be bothered to call him out. Below is the comment I left on this post on Deutsche Bank’s doom:

Quick factcheck from someone who actually speaks German!

For one your source was Bild, a paper only a slither above supermarket rags reporting on batboy and other such nonsense.

And for another, the first paragraph of the article translates as follows:

“We experienced a temporary IT problem that was quickly resolved, a spokesperson for the bank said on Sunday. He emphasized that only a limited number of customers were affected.”

So, no, this was no ATM blackout, no crisis, a mere fluke that happened to fall on an ominous date. My guess is that this was probably one or two ATMs that BSOD’d, less than five people called BILD and the rest is your false gotcha.

Quit fear-mongering, Jeff, rise above MSM tactics!

Patriotism is not a dirty word

Today’s tragic events in Brussels once again demonstrate what can happen when a country engages in foreign adventures unrelated to their national interests and at the same time fails to integrate foreigners. EU nations would do well to learn pretty quickly that patriotism is not a dirty word and that insisting that new arrivals integrate and assimilate is neither xenophobic or nationalist, it is plain common sense and very much necessary for a country to remain secure.

Say what you will about banking, Switzerland is the perfect example of how to be both proud of you identity and welcoming of others at the same time: By remaining neutral, staying out of other people’s affairs they have become a prosperous and very secure nation, and all without succumbing to police state measures or excessive “nanny-stateism”.

By remaining a true nation state (as opposed to a mere region of a super state) and therefore remaining in control of who can enter the country, they can afford to integrate and support new arrivals. In return, they expect that those newcomers will assimilate and assume Swiss values. As a result, there are no terrorist attacks on Swiss soil. Funny how this works…

In Switzerland there are no muslim ghettos, no no-go zones, no shanty towns and no troops on the streets.

And don’t say “banks”. Switzerland is proof that by minding your own business, taking care of your own and acting in your own interest as opposed to those of the Washington cabal you can be safe and prosperous and do so irrespective of how much your neighbouring countries whore themselves out to foreign interests.

Don’t be afraid to, as a nation or culture, know who you are and take rightful pride in your accomplishments. The world will notice, pay attention and leave you alone in return.

David Icke: So What?!

In case you’re not familiar with David Icke, Google can tell you plenty. This article should still be here when you return. 😉

Having read and heard a good amount of David Icke’s theories about our reality, I am forced to ask: So what?! It’s one thing to state what’s wrong, but quite another to say what should be (whether he’s right or wrong is largely immaterial in this context). He succeeds in the former but fails in the latter.

What Icke seems to suggest as the answer to society’s ills seems to be the age old hippie philosophy of “if we all just love one another it will all be cosmic”. Bad news, Mr. Icke, that too is bollocks. Replacing one world order of unity through norming with another that centers around blind love isn’t helping matters, it’s merely another version of the same old bait and switch that our politicians are so well known for. Don’t decry religion wholesale by suggesting and by fiat establish a new age faith, speak reason buttressed by facts, for, as the educated know, you can have your own opinion, but not your own facts.

A revolution in consciousness, greater free speech, more diplomacy and liberty to all, sign me up, but please, just devote some time to suggesting how this might be accomplished. Dreams are great, but a man with a plan is far more powerful.

Imaginary Phobias

The media and socialists everywhere like to accuse people with values of all sorts of phobias these days, with “Islamophobia” and “Homophobia” being just two of the most popular.

As I, unlike them, actually know what the word phobia means, feel I should point out that all their shouting is a mere expression of their cowardice and furthermore an admission of repressed guilt. If you need details, actually read Ann Coulter’s books from start to finish before talking. She’s funnier than Rosie O’Donnell before breakfast.

Just because some of us subscribe to Christian values does not automatically make us afraid of homosexuals or muslims (rationally or irrationally). All it means is that there are people who disagree with what certain members of those two groups stand for, period. And if it wasn’t for the immature and the mainstream media, their very own echo chamber, that would be it.

But because it’s sexy to claim that Islam means peace (it means submission) and to throw yourself at Christians and force them to abdicate their beliefs, that somehow makes it a grave offence to not participate in their grand illusion.

Disagreement is not the same as fear. If it were, how on earth could deputy PM Clegg disagree with the PM on surveillance policy? Granted, he probably doesn’t really, but if he were honest and not some left-wing B’stard, that example would stand.

It is insulting to intelligent people to prevent debate on important issues. What western society needs is not “respect” and “tolerance”, but vigorous debate and education from multiple points of view. Understanding grows from seeking information, not from mindless subservience to vacuous words.

We’re not anti-Brand, we’re anti-stupidity

In recent days, the usually awake alternate media have been promoting the idea that “the British establishment is hunting Russell Brand“. Not only do I share the latter’s opinion for a change, but I also object to this being portrayed as class warfare, one of Brand’s pet subjects.

What we, the establishment as well as clear thinking, mature adults in Britain object to is Brand’s immature, infantile and naive thinking. His so-called fresh perspective is nothing more than yet another re-hash of the same old communist class warfare tripe that has been exposed and debunked by thinking people for ages. Brand is not only not original, he is also just the latest tool being paid to promote social democracy and all the evil that comes with it.

Brand is unoriginal, embarrassingly bland, and yes, is in it for the money. So it’s not “the establishment hunting Brand”, it’s grown ups trying to educate a child.

US Appeals to “Law of the Jungle” in MH17 Case (Land Destroyer)

The abject failure of the United States to once again put forth credible evidence amid a firestorm of propaganda and rush to judgement – and subsequent action – echoes the attempted rush to war after NATO-member Turkey and Saudi Arabia assisted terrorists from the Syrian Al Qaeda franchise, Al Nusra, in carrying out a false-flag sarin gas attack in Damascus in August 2013. It also echoes the fallacious, fabricated evidence peddled before the United Nations regarding Iraqi “weapons of mass destruction” that in fact did not exist – but led to the invasion and nearly decade-long occupation of Iraq and over a million dead.

A tale of two worlds

In the wake of the MH17 tragedy, the awake amongst us have once again been able to contrast Russia’s mature, statesman-like and simply rational response with the West’s childish name calling, lying, slander and propaganda consisting of fabrications.

Compare their fantasies with Russia’s detailed, illustrated and bilingual presentation. No sane person presented with both sides would side with the West. Unfortunately, most voters cannot deal with the slander bombing undertaken by Western media (and they in turn dare not report truth or on reality) and thereby acquiesce and simply parrot the fiction spread by “their” media.

I am not Russian nor brainwashed by the FSB or RT and RIA Novosti. I am informed.

BBC ignores UK far-left

Russell Brand ‘Con-Dems’ MSM blackout of 50,000-strong anti-austerity march

One critical observation absent from the “debate” on this issue is that, just like Occupy Wall street, this “People’s Assembly Against Austerity” is, true to its name, a far-left / Labour / social democrat / communist organization playing into the elite’s hands.

Russel Brand has become a tool in the hands of the elite, who, as they have for ages, rely on a repeated cycle of Hegelian dialectic to extort the population.

The entity commonly known as the UK government has for decades overspent on buttering up miscreants and assorted lefties with excuses for laziness in the form of oversized benefits. Now that funds are nearing depletion, they have to institute austerity measures, as of course paying for the exploitation of anyone not in the elites comes first. Now in order to legitimize the next phase, they’re creating this false outrage to have a reason to extort even more money from the honest and decent among their people in the name of “helping the poor” or some other nonsense.

Just like with other celebs, Brand would be better of focusing on what he’s best at (and even there he’s crap), being a comedian. He has now definitely proven that he knows sod all about how politics really works.

Proof that Ukraine conflict is about natural resources

For weeks if not months, the enlightened observers of the Ukraine conflict, including myself for some time, have been pointing to the causus belli of the supposed “conflict between Kiev and Moscow” in Ukraine: natural resources, or in other words, the hydrocarbon basins located below East Ukraine and the Crimean Republic.

The Dnieper-Donets and Azov-Kuban hydrocarbon basins essentially cover much of east and south Ukraine as well as the Crimean peninsula, as this USGS report proves.

The rest of the puzzle, as of today, is a doddle, as Del Boy would say: The main licensee of those basins is Burisma Holdings, whose board has appointed none other than United States Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, as director.

The US oligarchs thought they had the situation under control after their “Nazi” puppets seized power earlier this year. Then the Crimeans pre-empted the realization of their control by leaving Ukraine for Russia. Now they really had to up the pressure to keep Donetsk and Luhansk from doing likewise, so they sent CIA director Brennan over to personally green light the fratricide we’ve been witnessing for the past few weeks.

While it is true that given their historical background, the entire eastern half of Ukraine has a greater tendency to feel a greater connection to Russia than to the EU, this is all mostly a grievance cleverly exploited by “the West”. Poland is under EU, US, IMF, etc. control, so if the Lviv region wanted to join Poland, for example, there would be no problem whatsoever.

Russia is not the enemy

In the unfolding conflict in the Ukraine, I have for the first time been forced to rely on Russia Today for balanced and truthful information. While RT usually is mainly useful for the sort of background information you’d only find on the Internet away from mainstream outlets, they are now proving to be an invaluable source of insight into what is happening, as opposed to what the EU and the USA want you to think is happening.

While I am well aware of RT’s allegiance to the Kremlin (heck, Eduard Shevardnadze’s granddaughter is one of their figureheads), they are nowhere as loyal as the allegedly free media out here are to the official storytellers of “the west”. Even if you filter out their storybook portrayal of Russian officials, you’re still left with more balanced information.

Take this piece of NWO propaganda, for example, or this “analysis”, also from the allegedly unbiased BBC:

  • The BBC keeps referring to “Pro-Russian separatists” to imply that somehow those residents active in the eastern Ukraine are somehow Kremlin loyalists and not patriotic Ukranians.
  • The same article, in line with guidelines for Western media, calls the junta in Kiev “the central government”, refusing to ever mention that they are illegitimate and to a great extent made up of neo-fascists the Russian media refers to as “Neo-Nazis”, either way right wing extremists who are doing the EU’s bidding by fighting against the Ukraine’s own interests.
  • The “analysis” states: “Some 40,000 Russian troops remain massed on Ukraine’s border. Military drills are under way.” While that may be true, it never mentions the US troops present in Poland and NATO troops also present in the region, both doing the exact same thing they claim Russia is wrong to do. Even if that were so, at least they’d be Russian troops massing on Russian soil, not American and western European troops massing just west of the Ukraine.

This crisis has highlighted western hypocrisy like I’ve rarely seen before. John Kerry has been the worst. The man who once prided himself on having led protests against the Vietnam war, now beats the drums of war against Russia, disingenuously claiming that what the US does never constitutes invasion or conquest. What are Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya if not nations conquered by US forces? The only reason we can’t call those three annexations is because they don’t share land borders with the contiguous 48 states.

Say what you will about the Russian government, but remember that the oligarchy that calls itself the US government and which already over half of Americans realize does not represent them, commits vastly more crimes outside its borders all the time than Russia may have when they invited the Crimean peninsula to join their federation.

The only reason why the US and the EU installed a puppet junta in Kiev in the first place is the prize they’ve got their eyes on now: natural resources in the eastern Ukraine. Just as in every major conflict of the recent past, it’s about oil, drugs and minerals.

No one side is innocent in this conflict, but the allegedly impartial European and American media are certainly guilty of hiding the truth and disseminating the propaganda written for them by the western oligarchy.

Once again, the blending of “their” version and “our version” results in the truth. Dare to consume foreign media if you’re strong enough!

Boston: martial law testing lab

Quite apart from its hegelian aspects, the bombing at the Boston marathon last year started the transformation of the greater Boston area into what I’d term a martial law testing facility. Already in the aftermath of the event last year, residents got to experience a DHS and militarized police orchestrated lockdown. Now we’re seeing the use of a smart grid surveillance system and further conditioning of people to accept overbearing authority.

Just like security checkpoints were once confined to airports and then expanded to ports and roads, this year’s marathon sees yet another increase in the use of false security on the form of checkpoints for both participants and spectators. Quite apart from the fact that terrorists wouldn’t bother to strike twice in the same place, having such all encompassing security is not a manifestation of “Boston strong”. “Boston strong” would be to hold the event without pretending that the sky was about to fall.

Realize that both the premise and the conclusion are wrong in this instance. The DHS has not prevented terrorist attacks which would not have happened in the first place had it not been for the disastrous US foreign policy of the last 50 years (at least) and unless they’re stopped, they will be ratcheting up the mistreatment of ordinary citizens until they can’t live without some form of federal dictatorship permit any longer.

The Boston marathon should be about athletic achievements, about being able to run where otherwise you couldn’t. Boston would be strong if its citizens refused to continue to be abused as a DHS sandbox.

Is ‘moderate Islam’ an oxymoron?.

tl;dr : Yes, it is.

The author does a great job of elaborating on a theory I’ve held to be true for quite some time. If any degrees in a religion exist, and this seems to be especially true for Islam, they are very much a question of whether one follows a religion and therefore belongs to it or whether one simply wears a label without following a religion.

Mind you, the same also applies in Christianity where many false prophets with many sheeple ruin the good name of Jesus, but that’s a whole lot more complex.

Switzerland to remain independent

To anyone who thinks today’s referendum had anything to do with racism or xenophobia, you might want to consult a dictionary. Non-EU citizens have always been subject to immigration restrictions. There is no other reason for why most professional immigrants are European when there are millions of talented professionals beyond the EU.

Also, it wasn’t even a vote to end immigration or to cut it down to a trickle. We the, the Swiss people, gave our govenment a mandate to find a better solution to our situation. Ideally, foreign nationals would come here to work and live and integrate like they used to, but the open door policy the federal government agreed on with the EU has created a situation where not only have valuable immigrants arrived too fast for the integration system to work properly, there has also been a wave of benefit cheats and deadweight type migrants entering Switzerland. One can hardly blame them considering the attractiveness of a wealthy state. But we, the citizens of this nation, can ask our govenment to better control these developments. And that is all the referendum was about!

Ideally, an open door policy would work. But just like open plan offices, it hasn’t. It is unfortunate that it had to come to this, but this vote was necessary to protect our way of life, and to a greater extent, our liberty. We Swiss have always been very proud of our independence and the riches it has brought us. We were among the richest on the planet before the EU, and we’ll remain so even if the unelected buerocrats in Brussels want to take their proverbial ball and run crying to their parents.

Like the prisoner who has come to love his cell, many outsiders seem to have forgotten, that this is what self-determination looks like. It’s OK to be jealous if it leads to improvements elsewhere.

Last but not least, when was the last time the Swiss Federal Council implemented a referendum exactly the way the fear mongerers thought? We Swiss do very well at negotiation and compromise, so untwist your panties and calm down!

Senator Rand Paul and window dressing

(US) Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) has made a name for himself in part by calling for an audit of the “federal reserve” (which in truth is neither federal nor possesses any reserves whatsoever). As noble as his goals may be, please take care not to be sucked into his game.

Even if the Senator succeeds in getting an official audit off the ground, which is already very unlikely, sort of like his father ever becoming President, remember how terrible a record the US government has on so-called official investigations.

Be it the JFK assassination, Iran Contra or 9/11, no US government investigation of the past 60 years at the very least has ever been interested in uncovering truth. On the contrary, all of them did everything they could to write fictional history and bury truth beyond the reach of any law or ordinary citizen.

Lazy journalism at The Daily Dot

The Daily Dot – In the U.S, its a crime—in Canada, its the best political prank of the year.

I don’t usually bother pointing out flaws in online journalists’ reasoning as the likelihood of there being many more of such erroneous conclusions is just far too high.

Just for fun, however, I’ll be nice and tell Lorraine Murphy where she went wrong. But not too nice. Presumably she can fill in the rest eventually.

The difference in this case is not between Canada and the US. (The alleged differences between the two countries are largely myths and elements of state sponsored propaganda anyway.) The difference between Andrew and Kevin is that the former exposed information that a concerned party had a reasonable expectation of being private, whereas the latter merely did a bit of URL hacking on a PR campaign, thereby exposing the laziness of the agency creating the campaign.

“Weev”‘s mistake was to publish the information he had gathered. Unlike Kevin, his act was not that of a mere Nelson “haw haw” finger pointing, it was something approaching extortion, an act a competitor such as Verizon might commission if they were criminally inclined. What could have resulted in at worst a suspended sentence if he had simply notified AT&T instead of publishing the data he had farmed, instead has resulted in a much harsher sentence.

So in sum, Ms. Murphy, no, this is not a difference between the US and Canada, it’s the difference between a benevolent and a malevolent hacker. It’s like the difference between telling a man his fly is open and posting a picture of whatever is showing for everyone he knows to see.

Draft for women – equal rights, equal duty

Think women exempt from draft? Think again.

Unlike the previous gender mixing efforts, this possible gender related change is a positive one.

For years I’ve been hearing women wanting equal rights. Now finally the consequences may be brought to bear. Equal rights should, in society as they do in nature, come with equal responsibilities. Until women’s rights groups and feminists acknowledge that due to the biological differences between men and women they can never be truly equal and that thus rights and duties ought to differ, forced equalizers such as the idea of a gender neutral draft are necessary.

And while we’re on equality, by the way, this should next be extended to racism. If racism really is evil, the NAACP, the Congressional black caucus and La Raza should be declared illegal. Either all race based benefits are racist or none are. The very idea that “minorities” can have racist associations due to some long gone discrepancy does not mean that they can now be granted exclusive benefits. Reverse racism is still racism. Equality means to be color blind, not to favor one color over another.

I’m constantly surprised when people complain about being treated “unfairly” in Arab nations. There is no excuse not to know about Islamic law when traveling there and therefore no right to complain if you run afoul of it.

As long as the proponents of Islamic law keep it confined to their own nations and thereby out of Europe and nations founded on European culture, they should be free to live life as they see fit. Cruel as it may seem, that approach works best. The meddling of Western powers in the last few decades has proven this over and over.

As long as no one forces you to travel to such nations and be violated at gunpoint, you have no right to complain. Again, there are far more important things to worry about right here at home!

Recreational drugs and how to deal with them

I’m beginning to think that we should deal with recreational drugs the same as with other than marriage unions, i.e. stop arguing and interfering.

If weak-minded morons want to ruin their and their families’ lives by consuming illegal drugs, let them, but don’t bill the rest of us. Let them kill themselves, but don’t tax me to pay for the outcomes of their follies. Deal with them however harshly you like once they can no longer be maintained. Those who are too stupid to respond to tailored offers of help may just be destined to erase themselves and their defectiveness.

As long as the truth wasn’t kept from them like it often is nowadays and they verifiably still choose to harm themselves but no one else, I don’t see why we should waste time on them.

I am not proposing we return to savage do or die behaviors, but there needs to be some pruning in the interest of sanity. There are things way more important than the well being of idiots.

Get government out of marriage (and OTM unions)!

So now that the US Supreme Court has opened the flood gates to any kind of union having to be recognized, I think it’s time government got out of the marriage and Other Than Marriage union business altogether. If they’re so hellbent on destroying marriage, they should welcome the logical step and quit meddling entirely.

In the end it’s all about money and privilege, so let’s remove those incentives and institute the most crude but also most fair to any pervert and FUBAR’d moron: Relationships with benefits registers, supported by government. Kind of like LLCs, but usually with fewer people involved. And just like there are LLCs for all sorts of services and purposes, the RLLCs would also be for different services and purposes.

If it’s really about “discrimination”, “equality” and all that other marxist rubbish, let’s no longer suppress polygamists, zoophiles, pedophiles and technophiles. Who are you to forbid them to “marry” as many people, animals or things as they want?

And if you, dear “tolerant people”, think pedophilia and zoophilia is wrong, for one who are you to judge, and for another, welcome to my world, I can’t condone repulsive behavior either.

EDIT: What I’m saying is: Let’s quit arguing and end this silly conflict! Liberalism is a mental disorder, so just like there’s no telling a paranoid person they’re not under constant threat, there’s no point in trying to explain to those morons what marriage is. This debate is a distraction from far more important things! There’s a man behind the curtain and he doesn’t like you one bit!

Britain Braced For Anti-Muslim Backlash after Woolwich Beheading (IBTimes UK)

Britain Braced For Anti-Muslim Backlash after Woolwich Beheading – IBTimes UK.

Wow, I think it’s more a case of free speech being under attack, more than Muslim “suffering”.

That people could get arrested for “racist” tweets is scary. Unless they’re actively working to commit violence, it should be those authorising the arrests that should do time for wasting taxpayers’ money.

No wonder the EDL and the UKIP are growing…

‘They don’t want to integrate’

“In Sweden you’ve got welfare, access to the educational system – up to university level, you got access to public transport, libraries, healthcare – to everything. And still they feel that they [immigrants] need to riot through stones and Molotov cocktails. It’s ridiculous and a bad excuse,” Swedish Democrats MP Kent Ekeroth told RT.

“Police can put down these riots in five minutes – if the politicians were to allow them,” Ekeroth added.

via » ‘They don’t want to integrate’: Fifth night of youth rioting rocks Stockholm Alex Jones’ Infowars: There’s a war on for your mind!.

Told you so. Ekeroth for PM!

Seems the Swedish voters should do some housecleaning and rid themselves of politicians who have been or would be likely to be complicit in such disregard for western standards!

Britain braces for possible copycat attacks (My Way News)

Britain’s domestic spy agency of MI5 has long warned of the difficulties in predicting self-starter attacks, or attacks that are inspired – not necessarily organized – by larger groups.

via My Way News – Britain braces for possible copycat attacks.

Bollocks! When Labour opened the floodgates predicting became much easier. Unchecked immigration will lead to such clashes between cultures and races, “extremist” religions or not.

Besides, in this case they knew the lead attacker beforehand, no predicting necessary!

Stockholm paralysed by cowardly officials

Stockholm rioting continues for fifth night | World news | guardian.co.uk.

Seems Stockholm police have never heard of “Fool me once, shame on me, fool me twice, shame on you.”

I hope no one is surprised that the riots are continuing. If you pussyfoot around like that and let those ungrateful morons get away with it, you’re asking for more.

If I were mayor of Stockholm I’d deploy riot squads after the first incident and the national guard in combat ready mode after the second. If they still didn’t get it I’d use even greater force.

Those foreigners have to be shown that in Western Europe we don’t tolerate such insolence. Or at least those of us still capable of thinking for ourselves don’t…

If those morons don’t like “anti-foreigner” policies and attitudes they alone are at fault!

Germany wants new debate on EU constitution: minister | Reuters

Germany wants new debate on EU constitution: minister | Reuters.

Wow, once again, a German government official talking about consolidating power… Wow. If I didn’t know better I’d mention the Reichstag, but that horse died ages ago.

What we have here is another go at presenting a pre-fabricated answer to a manufactured crisis. The question they’re really asking isn’t how do we solve this crisis, it’s how do we get those pesky wanna-be sovereign citizens to shut up so we can have our USE.

What the EU needs is to dissolve. Independence, sovereignty and neutrality work. Just ask Switzerland. Sure, wealth creates safety, but safety also invites wealth. And it’s too small to help out all its neighbors once the domino effect takes hold, so all you thinking sovereigns better get going.
