What’s Holding Alabama Back?

 Alabama Flag 2

As I watched my local Montgomery, Alabama news station this morning, I saw that question pop up on the screen. What’s holding Alabama back? Wait, what? What do you mean by “holding back?”

In the segment, the news station sent out a roving reporter on the streets of Montgomery to ask random citizens to tell him what they believe is “holding Alabama back.” The reporter got a brainstorm of an idea by creating an impromptu ballot box with “WHAT’S HOLDING ALABAMA BACK?” written on all sides. He placed the box on a table with some blank index cards and Sharpies, and allowed people to anonymously write their responses on the cards and drop them in the box.

According to the reporter, allowing people to remain anonymous would greatly improve the chances of people giving honest answers. However, it also simultaneously eliminated any possibility of checking for significant differences in responses according to gender, race, age, etc. I kind of would have liked to have known all that, which I think he finally figured out the hard way when he started tallying the results.

Robert E. Lee, General Orders, No. 73

Headquarters, Army of Northern Virginia
Chambersburg, Pennsylvania

June 27, 1863

The commanding general has observed with marked satisfaction the conduct of the troops on the march, and confidently anticipates results commensurate with the high spirit they have manifested.
No troops could have displayed greater fortitude or better performed the arduous marches of the past ten days. Their conduct in other respects has with few exceptions been in keeping with their character as soldiers, and entitles them to approbation and praise. There have however been instances of forgetfulness on the part of some, that they have in keeping the yet unsullied reputation of the army, and that the duties expected of us by civilization and Christianity are not less obligatory in the country of the enemy than in our own.

The commanding general considers that no greater disgrace could befall the army, and through it our whole people, than the perpetration of the barbarous outrages upon the unarmed, and defenceless [sic] and the wanton destruction of private property that have marked the course of the enemy in our own country.

Such proceedings not only degrade the perpetrators and all connected with them, but are subversive of the discipline and efficiency of the army, and destructive of the ends of our present movement.

It must be remembered that we make war only upon armed men, and that we cannot take vengeance for the wrongs our people have suffered without lowering ourselves in the eyes of all whose abhorrence has been excited by the atrocities of our enemies, and offending against Him to whom vengeance belongeth, without whose favor and support our efforts must all prove in vain.

The commanding general therefore earnestly exhorts the troops to abstain with most scrupulous care from unnecessary or wanton injury to private property, and he enjoins upon all officers to arrest and bring to summary punishment all who shall in any way offend against the orders on this subject.

German Mayor Victim-Blames Elementary School Girls For Sexually Provoking Muslim Men

Via comment by Quartermain on Mother of 10 year-old boy raped in Austrian swimmi...

The mayor of the town of Bad Schlema, a small district in central Germany, recently told community members that prepubescent girls should be careful about how they dress so that they don’t sexually provoke the Muslim refugees. Mayor Jens Muller also added that young girls should take alternative routes to school in order to avoid the threat of Muslim male pedophiles. 

When the grandfather of a school age girl asked about the mayor’s sexual assault prevention program, citing anecdotal evidence about a massive uptake in harassment complaints since the arrival of Muslim migrants, Muller gave what was probably the worst answer humanly imaginable. 

“That’s easy,” proclaimed Muller. “Just don’t provoke them and don’t walk in these areas.” 
Apparently, it’s incumbent on elementary school girls to avoid the wrath of Muslim child-rapists. Not only did Muller sexualize prepubescent children, but he displaced blame, implying that Muslim male migrants are essentially stuck in their ways, incorrigible and incapable of controlling the urge not to stalk, haunt, and molest kids.

VIDEO: 75-Year-Old German Woman Describes Daily Harassment, Abuse by Muslim Migrants

Via David

This elderly woman describes the daily terror she faces from Muslim migrants. At first she welcomed them, bringing them sweets, candies, and clothes. But the daily harassment is relentless. She cannot take the subway without being threatened. On the train, she is taunted with pornographic images on migrants’ ipads. She rails against Merkel and the political elite in their glass houses and limousines, completely out of touch with the reality of the new Germany.

This old woman predicts war. She says she lived through the last one (WWII) and it was horrible, but the German people are left with no other choice.

The Other Black History

Via Billy

Manhattan Institute senior fellow Jason Riley explains the trouble with Black History Month in modern times:
The irony is that black history in the first half of the 20th century is a history of tremendous progress despite overwhelming odds. During a period of legal discrimination and violent hostility to their advancement, blacks managed to make unprecedented gains that have never been repeated. Black poverty fell to 47% from 87% between 1940 and 1960 — before the implementation of Great Society programs that receive so much credit for poverty reduction. The percentage of black white-collar workers quadrupled between 1940 and 1970—before the implementation of affirmative-action policies that supposedly produced today’s black middle class.

Last Ditch Effort To Avert World War III As Saudis, Turks Prepare For Syria Invasion

Via Billy

Tomorrow, John Kerry will meet Sergei Lavrov and several of his other counterparts from Europe and the Mid-East in Munich in a last ditch effort to revive Syrian peace talks, which fell apart amid an intense Russian air assault on rebel positions in Aleppo.

For all intents and purposes, the rebels are surrounded. Initially, it appeared that the “moderate” opposition might be able to persist and bog down the Russians and the Iranians with the help of supplies from the US, Turkey, and Saudi Arabia. Those hopes faded over the past two weeks when Hezbollah advanced on Aleppo and ultimately encircled the city, cutting the rebels off from key supply lines and triggering a mass civilian exodus.

The talks in the Bavarian capital come at what is perhaps the most crucial point in the conflict to date. With the opposition on the ropes, it’s do or die time for Riyadh, Ankara, Doha, and the UAE. Either the Gulf monarchies send in ground troops to shore up the rebels or Hezbollah and the IRGC will overrun them in a matter of weeks - or perhaps even days.

Of course the opposition’s Sunni benefactors can’t exactly say they’re going into Syria to fight Iran and the Russians. Any ground incursion will be justified by the need to “fight ISIS” even though the Islamic State presence in Aleppo is markedly less pronounced than in other besieged urban centers like Raqqa and Deir ez-Zor. Indeed, the effort is so transparent that even the mainstream media has been forced to acknowledge it. 

Here’s FT, for instance:

Donald Trump Built a Juggernaut and Had the Media Pay for It
Bush, the multimillion-dollar man, reportedly spent $36 million in New Hampshire to Cruz’s half-million and Trump’s next-to-nothing, but his super PAC donors have deep, deep pockets. So Jeb’s likely to be in the race as long as his donors are willing.
Why does the mainstream media heap such scorn and disbelief on Donald Trump over his promise to build a great wall along the border with Mexico — and make Mexico pay for it? After all, Donald Trump has built a winning presidential campaign — and made the media pay for it.

Islamic Rape Goes Wherever Islam Goes

Via Cousin John

In one day the entire world became acutely aware of an aspect of Islam.  That day was December 31, 2016.  The event was New Year’s Eve.  The location was Cologne, Germany.  Within three weeks, over 800 crimes were reported for that one night.  359 sex crimes were reported.  659 women were listed as victims.  All 30 of the initial suspects initially identified were North African, 18 of which were recent immigrants.  All reports said that the suspects spoke Arabic.  The German justice minister told a German newspaper that he surmises the crimes that took place in Cologne during New Year celebrations were "coordinated or prepared.”

The women testified to the horror they lived through that night.  Michelle, an 18-year-old German woman, says, “The men then moved in and, despite their screaming out, began to molest the group of girls. Getting through their thick winter clothes, the girls told the television station about being touched on the legs, back, buttocks, and upper body. She said they protested, but the men didn’t appear to understand German. “They were all foreigners,” said Michelle.

New ‘Trust and Safety Council’ Is Twitter Version of 1984’s Ministry of Truth

THE NEW EUROPE: “Refugees” Given Priority at Hospitals, Free Train Tickets, Free Museum Visits

Via Billy
museum germany

In Austria “refugees” are given priority for hospital visits.
Via The Local:
The reason is that many asylum seekers need expensive translators to help communicate with doctors, and officials do not want to pay for the translators to sit around waiting.
The problem was highlighted last week when large numbers of people turned up at hospitals because of a flu epidemic, and h
ad to wait to see doctors whilst asylum seekers were given priority treatment.
As part of the asylum process, refugees get a health check. With 90,000 asylum seekers registered last year, this has put a huge strain on health resources.
Austrian officials have confirmed that they have been ordered not to make asylum seekers wait and to give them fast track treatment.
“Refugees” are given free museum admission in Germany. Native Germans are now second class citizens.

Sweden Arrests 14 For Plotting To Attack Migrant House With Axes, Iron Pipes & European Officials Mull 2 Year Schengen "Suspension"

Via comment by Central Alabamaian on Mother of 10 year-old boy raped in Austrian swimmi...

 In Bavaria, a carnival float made to resemble a Nazi tank read: "Asylum defense."

The Swedes are aggravated with Mid-East migrants.

With the highest per capita rate of sheltered asylum seekers in Europe, Sweden has become something of a poster child for migrant mischief.

In the wake of the sexual assaults that swept the bloc on New Year’s Eve, the world is suddenly focused on Sweden, where some say police conspired to cover up a series of attacks that allegedly occurred in central Stockholm’s Kungsträdgården last August and where a 22-year-old aid worker was recently stabbed to death by a Somali migrant. 

The backlash in the country is palpable and recently manifested itself in a move by the “football hooligan” crowd to stage an assault on Stockholm’s main train station where dozens of Moroccan migrant children are apparently camped out.

On Tuesday, in the latest sign that Swedes are becoming increasingly fed up with their government’s policy on refugees, more than a dozen people were arrested for planning an attack on an asylum center. Apparently, the men were plotting to use “axes, knives, and iron pipes” against a refugee shelter in Nynashamn, which is located some 60 kilometres (37 miles) south of Stockholm.

Well, no one can say the writing wasn't on the wall.

With Europe at a complete and total loss as to how to deal with the bloc's worst refugee crisis since World War II, countries have increasingly adopted their own, ad hoc "solutions" which include razor wire anti-migrant fences in Hungary and the suspension of Schengen in Austria, where the backlash against asylum seekers is growing more palpable by the day.

An ill-fated quota system devised by Berlin and Brussels proved more divisive than it did helpful and the wave of alleged sexual assaults that swept through the region on New Year's Eve threatens to derail the settlement effort altogther.

"We have until March, the summer maybe, for a European solution," one unnamed German official told Retuers last month. "Then Schengen goes down the drain."

Donald Trump is a Genius – But That’s Just His IQ!

Via Mike "This is an interesting analysis of Donald Trump by Dr. Sam Sewell. I think besides Trump perhaps Cruz, Carson, and Fiorina also fall into the 140+ IQ range. I think we need somebody pretty smart to manage a Republic of 320 million people with a complex economy $18 trillion, 17 percent of the world economy.  This is especially important, when our economic, social, and foreign policy problems have reached a point where many people, notably Senator Jeff Sessions, believe the 2016 election may be the last chance to save our country. The most interesting part of Dr. Sewell's analysis, however, is his evaluation of the motivational part of Trump's personality based on Maslow's need theory. As a military historian, the analysis reminds me of General Patton. General Patton was outspoken enough to give his military and political superiors some concern, but he got things done and battles won like nobody else.

On issues like Islam and immigration control especially but also on other issues, I keep asking myself two questions about all the candidates.

1. Do they understand the problem or threat?

2. Will they actually do anything about the problem or threat?

We have a tendency to elect leaders who are good public relations representatives and smooth talkers but are not leaders who can motivate people to anticipate and solve problems, and get things done within a Constitutional and democratic framework. Here is Dr. Sewell's article."





The army called this test "GT" around 1969, if you scored 136 or higher before 1978, Mensa will accept the result as proof of being in the 98th percentile. (I've often wondered if this is true, since I scored a 136 in 1966, (22 YO) USARV Headquarters, Long Binh, RVN but only an actual IQ of 118 in 1956 (12 YO) Can an IQ increase at all and  if so, that much in 10 years?  I've never found a definitive answer.)


The most well known high IQ society is Mensa.  To join Mensa one must score in the top 2% of a standardized IQ test.  That really isn’t all that outstanding.  One out of 50 people have IQs high enough to join Mensa. 

Numerical IQ scores are not an accurate indicator of intelligence.  For instance a score of 72 on the U.S. Navy GCT test is about equal to score of 150 on the WAIS (Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale).  Percentile IQ scores are a more informative measurement.

Way back during the 2004 presidential election I wrote an article that shook up the major news networks and the New York Times.  I was able to document that George Bush had a higher IQ score and better grades than John Kerry.  I belong to one of those high IQ societies, and I am a psychotherapist, so I have a credible background to evaluate Mr. Trump, even though my opinions are speculative.

Please keep in mind that IQ is a measure of intellect not character.  I will comment on Donald Trump’s character later in this article.

Donald Trump graduated from the  Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania in 1968, with a Bachelor of Science degree in economics and anthropology.  Mensa  doesn't accept SAT scores from after 1994.  However Mr Trump was a student at Wharton when it was possible to derive an accurate IQ core from known SAT scores.   Given the usual requirements for admission to a top school like Wharton, I estimate that Mr. Trump has a 156 IQ at the minimum.

Has the Hidden Location of the Tomb of Cleopatra Finally Been Found?

North View of Taposiris Magna’s Osiris Temple, Marble bust of Cleopatra VII of Egypt.

Taposiris Magna was just another archaeological site in Northern Egypt, until a rumor arose that the famous queen Cleopatra and her lover Mark Antony may have been buried there.

Abu Sir (Abusir), also known by its Roman name as Taposiris Magna, is located 45 kilometers (28 miles) from Alexandria, Egypt. It's an ancient city that was called Per Usiri by Egyptians, meaning “Dwelling of Osiris.” The name of the city implies that it's a place of Osiris’ burial, and in the past it was considered to be one of numerous places where, according to Egyptian mythology, Isis looked for the parts of Osiris’ body that was dismembered by his brother Seth.

It was also a port on the Mediterranean Sea and one of the most important trade harbors in the late history of Egypt. To make it even more attractive, it had another harbor on Lake Maryut.

Furthermore, the town may have been known since Pre-Dynastic times.
