Austria: Muslim asylum seeker smashes statues in six churches, saying: "Down with your statues, you are all unbelievers"

Via Nancy

A 37-year-old man from Ghana left a trail of devastation - as reported - at the weekend in Vienna's Stephansdom. The asylum seeker is also suspected of raging in three other churches in the capital and having destroyed numerous statues, baptismal fonts and crucifixes. 
...In November of the previous year, the 37-year-old reached Austrian soil and made an application for asylum. The man from Ghana was originally housed in Traiskirchen, but he didn't stay long there: on 1st January the man showed his exceptional aggressiveness for the first time, threatened a care worked with a stone and finally beat him unconscious. He was then thrown out of the asylum home.

Lessons of Failed Socialism

Norman Thomas spent his life promoting leftist agenda in the United States. He wrote, "The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism, but under the name of liberalism they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program until one day America will be a socialist nation without ever knowing how it happened."

Psychiatrist Lyle Rossiter says that growth of the liberal agenda in western societies has resulted from the idea that government is the appropriate agency to satisfy the longings in people for parental care. But, he says, government as a custodian, manager, provider, and caretaker is detrimental because the people become dependents.

But the pushers of socialism think of themselves not as dependents but as managers. These elites are often millionaires like Michael Moore and George Soros. Others are tenured college professors or Hollywood stars. The most powerful group of elites are members of Congress. These exempt themselves from their onerous creations like Social Security and ObamaCare.

We should learn from the examples of failed socialist states. The first American failure of socialism was in the Plymouth Colony in 1623. For three years the Colonists lived as a socialist community, putting the fruits of their common toil into a common storehouse; and each year they suffered famine. Finally, Governor William Bradford gave separate parcels of land to families to work as their own. Thereafter, the colonists had plenty of food, and those who produced more than they could consume themselves sold it to others.

Today all informed people know of the failure of socialism in North Korea and Cuba. Everyone should be aware that the most spectacular failure of a socialist government was the Soviet Union. It broke apart in 1989 after causing seventy years of misery for its people. In the 1950s Khrushchev revealed the full extent of Stalin’s crimes against his people, including the murder of 20 million people. The predictable outcome of full- blown socialism is tyranny, because the government assumes absolute control of all facets of society. The founding fathers knew that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. But the political left deny that reality.

David Horowitz has written extensively about his experiences as a communist living and working among his American comrades. His writing is instructive about leftist thinking in America. Even though American leftists knew of Stalin’s crimes, they continued to support the Soviet Union: "We were confident that the socialized foundations of Soviet society would eventually assert themselves, producing a self-reform of the Soviet tyranny." He says it is a characteristic faith of the left that, despite all evidence to the contrary, a socialist eutopia awaits the world sometime in the future.

In the Soviet Union in 1989:

Income per worker was one seventh that of workers in the U.S.

Red meat and sugar were rationed;

Intake of red meat per person was half what it had been under the Czars in 1913;

Fruits, vegetables, and household goods were unavailable;

Siberian miners had been on strike because they could not get bars of soap;

In a land of virgin forests, there was a toilet paper shortage;

Two-thirds of households had no hot water; a third had no running water at all;

A family of four was forced to live in an 8ft-by-8ft room.

Given these facts, you have to wonder, "Why is America becoming a socialist society?"

MAIG Mayor Loses It On Air: “What Do You [Know], You’re A State Senator!”

WV Senate Majority Leader John Unger and host Bray Cary absolutely destroy the hysterical Mayor of Charleston West Virginia, Danny Jones on a local “talking heads” show. Unger and Bray refer to the exact wording of the law time and again, and a hysterical, high-pitched Jones keeps telling them that the plain English of the bill doesn’t mean what it says.

Economic Impact, Jobs in Firearms Industry Nearly Doubles Since 2008


Thanks, Obammie!

New numbers released by the National Shooting Sports Foundation show the economic impact of the firearms industry has nearly doubled in the past five years, giving a much needed boost to local, state and national economies.

“We have seen dramatic, unprecedented during peacetime growth in the firearms and ammunition industry that is the direct result of consumer demand for our products in the last five years,”

Why Turkey Was Planning A False Flag Operation In Syria

Via avordvet

You’ve probably heard about the recent leaked conversations involving Turkey.

It was stunning to hear the highest-ranking Turks casually discussing how to provoke a false flag incident that would justify a large military intervention in Syria.

This is a big deal because Turkish troops in Syria opens the door to NATO troops in Syria, which drastically expands the conflict.

As someone who has spent a number of years living and working in the Middle East, and having been to Syria multiple times, I was encouraged by my colleagues at Casey Research to share my perspective on this.

In case you didn’t know, a false flag is an incident that is designed to deceive people into thinking it was actually carried out by someone else.

It’s like the scene in the movie Fast Times at Ridgemont High. There’s a character who plays on the high school football team and has a fancy sports car. Later, his little brother’s friend accidentally trashes this car. Terrified at how the big brother could respond, they come up with a clever plan to shift the blame on someone else. They make it look like a rival football team vandalized the car, decorating it in the rival team’s colors and slogans. The plan works—the big brother is tricked into thinking that a rival football team trashed his car instead of the little brother.

This is the essence of a false flag, and the same tactic is used by the world’s militaries and intelligence services to nefarious effect. Many believe the Reichstag fire incident that allowed Hitler to drastically expand his power was a false flag operation.

So, why would the Turks propose doing such a thing in Syria?

To answer that question, we need to sift through the complexities of the Syrian situation.

Fort Hood Gunman Did Not See Combat in Iraq Tour, Officials Say

 Image: Ivan Lopez
 A "white male" named Ivan Lopez  from Puerto Rico?  Useful fools.

The soldier who shot three people to death at Fort Hood apparently did not see combat during a tour in Iraq three years ago but was clearly troubled, under treatment for depression and anxiety and being evaluated for post-traumatic stress disorder.

As authorities tried to piece together a motive on Thursday for the rampage, a picture began to emerge of the gunman, identified as Spc. Ivan Lopez, 34, a married father who transferred from another base in Texas in February.

Lopez served eight years in the Army National Guard in Puerto Rico before enlisting in the Army in June 2008, military officials told the Senate on Thursday. He was assigned to Fort Bliss, Texas, before transferring to Fort Hood two months ago, according to military records.

Update: A Spoof: Unintentional Loop at Takeoff from Carrier

Via Cousin Colby

This guy clearly has brass and you know the sailors on the flight deck had a cow when they saw this unfold in front of them. Intentional? Hardly!

This is unbelievable!

F-35 unintentional loop at takeoff a real "check your laundry" event.

A supremely well-trained US Navy pilot, ice running in his veins instead of blood, fully regains control of his $70 million, F-35 joint strike force fighter, after a problematic vertical take-off attempt... Watch as the rear vertical thruster fires to cause the problem.

There's nothing about this the pilot enjoys. If he could have ejected at 100' upside down and lived, he would have. Looks like the afterburner kicks in while still vectored for vertical takeoff. Lockheed would call this a "software malfunction" and do a little more "regressive testing". This is a good demonstration of power-to-weight ratio of this aircraft! And talk about stability control... wow!
If he didn't come out of the loop wings-level, it probably would have been bad news; maybe taking some of the carrier with him!

Add to this flying through your own exhaust, which can lead to equipment malfunctions, as in "flame out". The F-35 is single engine aircraft with vertical takeoff/landing capability, but it has the aerodynamics of a Steinway piano at zero airspeed. This is the most unbelievable piece of flying you will ever see in your life.

This guy's coolness saved a 70 million-dollar aircraft! On the other hand, he might not have had time to react to anything except just ride it.

Teacher 'White Privilege Conference': Whites Are Never Cured of Racism

Via Cousin John

More details are emerging about what was presented at the "White Privilege Conference" held in Madison, Wisconsin, where tax money was spent to train teachers how to annihilate "white privilege" and "white supremacy" in American schools. One session insisted that whites can never be cured of their permanent racist attitudes.

On March 30, Breitbart reported on the conference, now in its fifteenth year. Over these years, teachers have been told that whites have been pushing "white supremacy" on kids since the country was created, and that whites are so infused with racism that they aren't even cognizant of their crimes.
The latest conference pushing this propaganda was held in Madison between March 25 and 29. A Wisconsin reporter tried to gain access to the event, but hosts denied him entrance.

Chaos: As the ship sank, passengers and crew battled each other to fit into an overloaded lifeboat

With a cargo of immigrants bound for a new life in America, the William Brown was a ship full of hope. It had set off from Liverpool five weeks earlier, on March 13, 1841, and was nearing the end of its voyage to Philadelphia. 

A ship of 559 tonnes, it carried salt, coal and china, along with 65 passengers, mostly Irish and  Scottish families, as well as husbands and  wives joining spouses who had already made the journey from the old world to the land of opportunity.

There was thick fog as the ship entered the icefield west of Nova Scotia on the night of April 19. But rather than slowing down as other ships nearby were prudently doing, the better to avoid icebergs that might suddenly loom out of the darkness, the American captain, 48-year-old George Harris, kept the William Brown sailing at a brisk ten knots. 

Harris was an experienced sailor, but he was under pressure from the ship’s owners to complete the voyage quickly because the vessel was about to be sold.

House Republicans' Secret Immigration Ploy

Via WiscoDave

House Republicans are quietly working to insert immigration legislation into the text of the Department of Defense authorization bill that would allow so-called DREAMers to obtain permanent legal residency by joining the military, Breitbart News has learned.

The language, which if successful would mark the first effort by House Republicans to provide any form of amnesty since the GOP took control of the House in 2010, has set off a panic among top immigration hawks that the effort could open an immigration Pandora’s box, paving the way for broader legislation.

Sophomore Republican Rep. Jeff Denham of California, a close ally of GOP Whip Kevin McCarthy, is leading the push to add the text of his “ENLIST Act” into the National Defense Authorization Act, which could come to the House floor as early as next month.

The effort, which has not previously been reported, is fairly advanced, and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte – who killed the proposal as an amendment to last year's NDAA in a dramatic floor struggle – is weighing whether to approve the maneuver, which would circumvent his committee on one of its key matters of jurisdiction.

“We're working on it,” Goodlatte said.

Meanwhile, top immigration hawks ripped the proposal as ill-conceived and a clear effort to build momentum for a comprehensive immigration bill.

On the heels of NATO's declaration that is was suspending all practical cooperation with Russia (and ordered military planners to draft new measures to strengthen its defenses), Bloomberg reports that the US will be sending a Navy warship back to the Black Sea. Pentagon spokesman Army Colonel Steve Warren told reporters that the ship (as yet unnamed) wil be there to conduct exercises with allies and is a "direct response to the circumstances in Ukraine." and is the first in the Black Sea for 2 weeks.
