Because we have absolutely nothing more important to do than tell people how they must think.........
A prominent German neo-Nazi dubbed the 'Nazi grandma' by German media has again been convicted of Holocaust denial and sentenced to eight months in prison.

The Detmold state court in Germany announced on Friday that 87-year-old Ursula Haverbeck plans to appeal the decision.

Haverbeck wrote a letter in February to the mayor of Detmold when a former Auschwitz guard was going on trial there, claiming the notorious Nazi death camp was only a labour camp and called survivors 'alleged witnesses.'

Excellent: Slavery in Pennsylvania


Indentured servitude is one of the more neglected elements of American labor history. Most historians gloss over the subject in route to African slavery. This is largely due to the impact of long standing issues of race in America, but Southerners understood Northern complicity in the institution of African slavery and often pointed to Northern hypocrisy in regard to the treatment of indentured servants and Indian slaves and their ongoing profits from the African slave trade. Indentured servitude even affected one of the more famous members of the founding generation. Benjamin Franklin was once a runaway, and had his brother pursued him, Franklin would have been rounded up and sent back to work for his brother as bonded labor. It is also rumored that Franklin dabbled in slave trading at one time.

The life of an indentured servant was not easy. From the following 1750 description of indentured servitude in Pennsylvania by German Gottlieb Mittleberger, it becomes clear that there was very little difference between the slave markets for African slaves and those of European serfs in America.

A Gutless RNC Abides Leftist Debate Moderators

Via Billy

Early last month, we recounted that the “non-partisan” Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) managed to select consistently leftist debate moderators in every presidential debate from 1980 through 2012. Last Friday, the CPD released the list of moderators for the upcoming 2016 debates.

No doubt to the consternation of millions of Americans, the CPD’s “streak” remains very much alive:

First presidential debate:
Lester Holt, Anchor, NBC Nightly News
Monday, September 26, Hofstra University, Hempstead, NY

Vice presidential debate:
Elaine Quijano, Anchor, CBSN and Correspondent, CBS News
Tuesday, October 4, Longwood University, Farmville, VA

Second presidential debate (town meeting):
Martha Raddatz, Chief Global Affairs Correspondent and Co-Anchor of “This Week,” ABC
Anderson Cooper, Anchor, CNN
Sunday, October 9, Washington University in St. Louis, MO

Third presidential debate:
Chris Wallace, Anchor, Fox News Sunday
Wednesday, October 19, University of Nevada, Las Vegas, NV

Professor Who Assaulted Student Journalist HIRED at This University

Gonzaga University has brought embattled ex-Mizzou professor Melissa Click on board to serve on its faculty despite her assault against a student journalist last fall.

Gonzaga announced its decision late Friday, saying that after a national search Click “emerged as the top candidate based on her record of teaching.”

“The committee was unanimous in deciding that she would be one of the two people to whom we offered the job,” said Gonzaga’s Communications Studies Department chair, Jonathan Rossing, under whom Click will serve as a lecturer in a one-year, non-tenure-track position.

Click was suspended in January and subsequently fired for her involvement in a string of protests on Mizzou’s campus last fall, which sent the school into the national spotlight and resulted in a year of racial unrest.

The Terrorism Tax hits Europe

This is big news.  This is the first large scale demonstration that the "Terrorism Tax" I speculated about back in 2004, actually works.  

Liz Alderman at the NYTimes reported that terrorism is squashing Europe's first glimmer of recovery since the financial crash.  EU economic growth has been halved since spring, with France now at zero.  Here are some details:
Tourism is sinking.  For example:  "In France, growth in nightly hotel room bookings after the Paris attacks fell to single digits from 20 percent. After the Brussels bombings, bookings went negative, and after Nice, bookings fell by double digits."

Merkel's ruling CDU party has been beaten into third place by an anti-immigrant and anti-Islam party

Via Billy

The Alternative fuer Deutschland (AfD) party took just under 21% of the vote behind the centre-left SPD's 30%.

The German chancellor's CDU was backed by only 19% of voters, its worst ever result in the state.
The vote was seen as a key test before German parliamentary elections in 2017.

The U.S.’s Syria policy rests on a treacherous fault line

Via Billy

The Syrian Kurds may have overreached in expanding from the ancestral home they call “Rojava,” but they did so with tacit U.S. encouragement. That’s part of a pattern: Western powers over the past century have used Kurdish fighters when it suited their purposes, and then abandoned them when neighboring powers objected.
The U.S. military campaign to seize the Islamic State’s capital, Raqqa, may be delayed because of a nasty fight between Turkey and the Syrian Kurdish militia known as the YPG. 

Sadly, it’s a classic Middle East moment, when regional players’ mistrust of each other overwhelms their common interest in fighting the terrorist Islamic State. And, equally sadly, it’s a moment that illustrates the frailty of the United States’ Syrian policy, which has built its military plans on the treacherous fault line of Turkish-Kurdish enmity.

In disentangling this story, let’s start with the Syrian Kurds.

He insulted whores.  I'm pissed...........:)

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte called Barack Obama a "son of a whore" on Monday as he vowed not to be lectured by the US leader on human rights when they meet in Laos.

The acid-tongued Duterte bristled at warnings he would face questioning by the US president over a war against drugs in the Philippines that has claimed more than 2,400 lives in just over two months.

"You must be respectful. Do not just throw away questions and statements. Son of a whore, I will curse you in that forum," Duterte told a news conference shortly before flying to Laos to attend a summit.
