The American Thinker: The Politics of Psychopathology (Ironically, it was the Marxist invention of Freudian psychology and psychotherapy, intended to pathologize the West, that had so much to do with locking down the U.S. and the West into its current open-borders Multicultural Marxist make-believe utopia. Recommended: 'The Culture of Critique,' by Kevin MacDonald.)
The Politics of Psychopathology
The history of Marxism is both tragedy and farce. The tragedy is obvious to all who can bear to see -- tens of millions of dead, massive social and economic destruction, the gulags, enslavement, poverty, the favoritism shown to themselves by Marxist elitists, and endemic corruption. The Soviet Union collapsed due to dishonesty, inefficiency, incompetence, and corruption in 1991. The constituent republics of the Soviet Union almost unanimously fled the embrace of Mother Russia after the dissolution of the USSR. Now North Korea, Cuba, and Venezuela, economic basket cases all, continue the Soviet model, and Putin is trying to revive Russia with the same old tired Marxist philosophy, but no longer labeled as Marxist. Despite the serial disasters of Marxism there is an abiding faith among Marxists worldwide that Marxism can be made to work and prosper. This faith is particularly ironic when found within American academia and politics, since America was the most successful social and economic experiment in history until recently.
In the one hundred fifty years since Karl Marx became active, it seems not to have occurred to a single ranking Marxist leader except Milovan Đilas that something is wrong with the whole Marxist concept. On the contrary, the wholesale death and destruction within Marxist states is celebrated as a necessary evil and the eventual collapses are blamed on human failure and inadequacy. Marxism is thought by Marxists to be an infallible historical certainty ...
Refugee Resettlement Watch - Ann Corcoran: Denver refugee offspring (Somalis and Sudanese) caught in Germany trying to reach ISIS
Denver refugee offspring (Somalis and Sudanese) caught in Germany trying to reach ISIS
And to think that our open-borders overlords are giving all this away to the teeming dysfunctional Third World.
Ho hum…. so what else is new!
This story is all over the news, so other than for me to acknowledge the latest case of refugees thumbing their noses at the good life in America (paid for by you, the taxpayer) and still wanting to join the Jihad, here is one version of the story from ABC. If you see more detailed stories, send the link as a comment.
If you type ‘Somali missing youths’ into our search window, you will get upwards of 100 posts (going back as far as 2008) on this same topic—Somali refugees off to learn the Jihad trade. ...
AP / Yahoo News: Canada's PM says shooting rampage was terrorism (The greatest terrorists are all Western leaders who are merrily importing terrorism while demographically genociding their own founding European peoples.)
Canada's PM says shooting rampage was terrorism
OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) — A masked gunman killed a soldier standing guard at Canada's war memorial Wednesday, then stormed Parliament in an attack that was stopped cold when he was shot to death by the ceremonial sergeant-at-arms. Canada's prime minister called it the country's second terrorist attack in three days.
"We will not be intimidated. Canada will never be intimidated," Prime Minister Stephen Harper vowed in an address to the nation. ...

Refugee Resettlement Watch - Ann Corcoran: Nashua, NH to take 150 new refugees this year; contact the mayor!
Nashua, NH to take 150 new refugees this year; contact the mayor!
New Hampshire readers (others too!) need to send yesterday’s World Net Daily story to Nashua’s mayor!
Titled, ‘Another US city protests influx of refugees,’ the article (a must-read) is a broad overview of cities across America where mayors are asking questions and demanding the flow stop (or in the case of Athens, GA not even begin). Once an agency gets a foothold, they won’t stop at 150!
This article in the Nashua Telegraph requires a subscription. Here is a bit of it from a reader who is a subscriber.
And, LOL!, check it out, Lutheran Social Services of New England has changed its name. By the way, this is a prime example of how these resettlement contractors (whatever they re-name themselves) overload certain cities then spread out from there. They are running out of “welcoming” places to drop-off refugees! ...
AFP / Yahoo News: EU's Juncker wins green light for 'last chance' team - "The possibility of Britain leaving the EU in a planned 2017 referendum is another problem Juncker has to face, but he said he was 'not prepared to change' EU migration rules in response to demands from London." (Sorry, your 'last chance' was years ago. Along with leaders like Obama, Cameron and Hollande, you need to be swept out of office on a wave of voter disgust.)
EU's Juncker wins green light for 'last chance' team
Strasbourg (France) (AFP) - The EU's incoming chief executive Jean-Claude Juncker vowed Wednesday to seize the "last chance" for the bloc as his team of commissioners won parliamentary approval to start work on a stalling economy and foreign policy challenges.
The European Parliament in Strasbourg voted by 423 to 209 in favour of Juncker's European Commission, which will have a five-year mandate as the union's executive branch starting on November 1.
But with disillusioned voters fearing a return of the economic crisis in the eurozone, suffering from high unemployment, and increasingly turning to anti-EU parties, Juncker said the new commission had to act now.
"This is the last-chance commission," the former Luxembourg prime minister said in a speech ahead of the vote. ...
Refugee Resettlement Watch - Ann Corcoran: Vermont refugee worker embezzles from non-profit’s clients (I'm sure this is just an isolated case. [sarc])
Vermont refugee worker embezzles from non-profit’s clients
Just a quick story in our favorite “welcoming” state of Vermont. Clearly a former refugee herself, it’s alleged that Ms. Mbayu stole from other refugees.
From the Burlington Free Press (hat tip: Joanne):
A former caseworker at the Association of Africans Living in Vermont is facing a charge of embezzlement for pocketing $34,000 in tax refunds of two of her clients in recent years, Burlington Police said Friday.
Francine Mbayu, 43, of Burlington is due in Vermont Superior Court on Oct. 30 for arraignment on the felony embezzlement count, police said.
Detective Cpl. Michael Hemond said Mbayu diverted the tax refunds of the two victims between 2011 and 2014 into her bank account and illegally retained all or a portion of each refund.
I would love to dig into the financials for the Association of Africans Living in Vermont, but no time today. If you are a Vermonter reading this, remember it’s important to research the refugee organizations and operatives in your state (a message for readers in every state!). ...
The American Thinker: Silence in the face of Jihad in West Orange, New Jersey - "Mohamed called it a 'just killing.'"
Silence in the face of Jihad in New Jersey
- - -
Unknown to most, we in America were not as fortunate as the Aussies. Something similar to what happened in Australia took place here, but the mainstream media is keeping it quiet. In West Orange, New Jersey, a lovely middle-class suburb, an American jihadist, Ali Mohamed Brown, shot and killed a promising 19-year-old right on the street corner because, as he boasted to police, he was “looking to find an American to kill in retaliation for Moslem deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan”. The killing took place this past June 25.
Young Brendan Tevlin, beloved in his Irish-Catholic community, was murdered precisely because he was American, by a jihadist roaming our suburban streets hunting down Americans. Mohamed called it a “just killing”. Identifying as a Moslem and not as an American, he took “revenge” against his fellow countrymen.
The media hasn’t covered the story, just as they never mentioned the jihadi motives behind the Muhammad/Malvo “Beltway” shooting spree at cars on I-95 a few years ago, or the shooting by a jihadist at a Little Rock army recruitment center, or in Seattle, or at LAX, or years ago atop the Empire State Building. ...
