Don't Mention the Politics - 'Merkel´s party is everything and nothing at the same time ... [an] all embracing political machine.' (In saving the West from the third-world invasion, instead of Charles Martel, we have a man who identifies with the Third World and a woman who is the genial mayor of Europe, who would combat the onrushing Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse by negotiating safer equine speed limits)

"Merkel Gets Biggest Victory Since Kohl’s Reunification Vote" - this was the news headline of Bloomberg. And at the first glance it seems correct: Angela Merkel's party – the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) – got  41.5% of the votes. The Social Democrats with their candidate Peer Steinbrück only received 25.7%, not even close to Merkel´s tally. The Greens took 8.4%, and the post-communist Left Party 8.6%. Merkel´s former coalition partner, the liberal FDP failed to reach the 5% threshold needed to gain representation in the Bundestag, getting just under the "magic number" with 4.8% of the vote. The new Eurosceptic party "Alternative für Deutschland" didn't manage to get 5 percent either.
On the night of the election, we witnessed kafkaesque scenes at the victory party of Merkel's CDU, with the leading staff of an outfit, typically described as “conservative”in the international media, clapping hands and singing along to a song of the left-wing band "Die Toten Hosen" (the Dead Trousers). The general secretary of the CDU, Hermann Gröhe, in particular was afflicted with an embarrassing case of "dad dancing."
German and international media have been referring to the "great victory" of Angela Merkel, both celebrating it and expressing concern about her "new power." Some international journalists have asked the question why "the Germans" love Angela Merkel so much. Others have started analyzing how conservative the Germans are – after all they voted for the "conservative party." To say it frankly, everything, from the "conservativeness" of the CDU to its "great victory," is not quite what it seems to be. . . .

In the early light of a spring morning 1989, a fellow barged into the Crestone, Colorado, bakery where Christine Canaly worked, hungry for breakfast. The man, it turned out, was vice president of a company that planned to spend $150 million to drill 100 wells and pipe water from the rural San Luis Valley to the Denver suburbs, more than 100 miles away. Those suburbs, he said, would pay top dollar for the water, and the project would be a financial bonanza for everyone in the San Luis Valley.

Canaly was worried by the news. Rumors about such a project had already been swirling through the valley. “People suspected it,” she says. “But no one came out and full-blown said it.”

A few days later, Canaly drove her Volkswagen Rabbit to pick up 400 pounds of flour from miller and rancher Greg Gosar, and she mentioned the conversation to him. In the arid West, water can be an issue as contentious as sports and religion, and Gosar was concerned himself. “Water rights,” he says, “are everyone’s business around here.”

In fact, Gosar had been chewing over a conversation that he’d had a year earlier. The principal owner of the sprawling, 97,000-acre Baca Ranch, a Canadian oilman named Maurice Strong, had been applying for extensive water rights in the valley. Gosar had asked Strong what he planned to do with the water. “Maurice told me, ‘We’re going to put in some potatoes, and we’re gonna plant quinoa,’” he recalls. 

But Gosar didn’t quite believe it. And now, talking with Canaly, all the pieces began to fit together. Strong was the head of the same company that Canaly’s hungry visitor worked for. And if the massive water-export plan went through, there was a very good chance that the project would suck the valley’s farms and streams dry. Gosar was angry. 

“Let’s go get these guys,” he told Canaly. . . .

Gilbert Cavanaugh On the Somali “Minnesotans” (Latest report on wondrous Rainbow Nation City Minneapolis, post-Mary Tyler Moore Richards bad old white-bread days)

During that dark slutty Minneapolis--St. Paul era before required head scarfs.

On the Somali “Minnesotans”

Gilbert Cavanaugh

In the incredibly unlikely case that you have not yet heard, Jihadist terrorists based out of Somalia  struck a mall in Nairobi, Kenya — with death tolls running quite high. Then came the uncomfortable news that three of the terrorists were from… Minnesota. After that, the media chips fell where you would guess — the Somali-American community officially condemned the attack, then there wasfear of reprisal, then Ms. Pamela Geller threw a polemical fit.  What would you expect?
Moving beyond pundit reactions, it is worth noting some of the background to this. Like the rest of America, Minnesota started receiving an influx of Somali immigrants in the 1990s, and quickly became host to more of them than anywhere else in the New World. Since, “those of Somali descent are not asked about their ancestry during the census,” the exact number of them is hard to determine, some say 30 or 35 thousand, others say at least one hundred thousand — regardless, most of whom live in Minneapolis. Despite the media’s best attempts to portray these recent events in a “how could this happen?!” way, this is not the first time Somalis from the Twin Cities have gone to Africa for the glory of Allah. The list keeps getting longer too, and with each new addition, the ones preceding it must be forgotten. For example, the recruitment video specifically targeting Somali Minnesotans that came out last month  is now being described as having “caused little stir.” The video’s obvious ineffectiveness is of course being noted now that there is something to indicate the opposite; much like how the conviction of four Somali Minnesotans earlier this summer for aiding al-Shabab has been completely forgotten. . . .

Jared Taylor: A Brief History of American Race Relations - 'Wherever you find people of more than one race trying to share the same territory, there is conflict.'

A Brief History of American Race Relations

Jared Taylor, American Renaissance, September 27, 2013
Conflict is inherent; tragedy is frequent.
I would like to thank Professor Hoppe for inviting me to speak. It’s a pleasure and an honor to be before you today.
I have been asked to give you a history of American race relations in a half hour—not an easy thing to do. It would be easier to give you a history in a single word, and that word would be conflict. Conflict is the normal state of race relations anywhere in the world, and for reasons that I believe are deeply biological.
Humans have an exquisite sensitivity to differences between their group and other groups. Group conflict is as old as our species. Humans are prepared to fight each other for all kinds of reasons: ethnicity, language, nationality, religion, and even for political reasons, but of all the kinds of conflict, racial conflict is the most chronic and difficult to control, and that’s because race is part of biology. It is immediately visible, and is usually an indicator of differences in behavior and culture and not just a difference in appearance.
Wherever you find people of more than one race trying to share the same territory, there is conflict. . . .

Obama Administration: Colleges should seek diversity (like telling bears they can continue to relieve themselves in the woods)

Administration: Colleges should seek diversity

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration told colleges and universities Friday they can continue to use admissions to increase diversity among their students, even in the wake of a Supreme Court ruling that could potentially open the door to more challenges.
"Racially diverse educational environments help to prepare students to succeed in our increasingly diverse nation," the administration said in a letter to schools.
The Supreme Court ruled June 24 that schools should approve the use of race as a factor in admissions only after concluding "that no workable race-neutral alternatives would produce the educational benefits of diversity." The 7-1 decision, stemming from a case challenging the University of Texas admission plan, did not question the underpinnings of affirmative action. . .  .
     This is like telling bears they can continue to relieve themselves in the woods: (1) Even when anti-white discrimination is prohibited by states, college and university administrators simply continue it more covertly; (2) The Texas decision actually helps anti-white discrimination, further disguising it under yet more legal yammerings. 

                                    Okay, thanks!

‘Prosperity Needs to Be Shared,’ Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) Says, As Energy Dept Launches Minority Outreach (but if minorities want to be scientists and engineers, what's wrong with plain old-fashioned study, study, study?)

‘Prosperity Needs to Be Shared,’ Dem Says, As Energy Dept Launches Minority Outreach

Mary Landrieu

( – Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) said “prosperity needs to be shared” at an event on Tuesday at the Energy Department to promote opportunities for minorities in the energy sector.
“We seek greatness, goodness, excellence, hard work, usually wealth comes with that, not always. It’s not what we seek, but it’s what the result of our good work is – and prosperity for America. But that prosperity needs to be shared in a way that honors the talents and the strengths of the individuals that make up this great country,” Landrieu said at the event to launch the Minorities in Energy Initiative.
“We’ve got such a long way to go in terms of really using the talent in this community, in our community generally, to create wealth and opportunity – and wealth not as a means to itself but as a result of excellence and hard work, not as something we seek,” Landrieu said.
The Energy Department says its new "Minorities in Energy Initiative" will "strive to ensure that our energy workforce more fully reflects the diversity and strengths of the country." It says Hispanics, African Americans and American Indians make up 24 percent of the overall U.S. workforce, yet account for only 9 percent of the country’s science and engineering workforce, which are the fields that drive the energy sector.
“Beginning this month, the Minorities in Energy Initiative will coordinate a conversation to link together representatives from diverse community organizations, academia, business, and industry to provide their individual perspectives to address shared challenges in the areas of energy economic development, STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education, and climate change.” . . .
     Of course, who can be surprised at this sort of nuttiness anymore when even astronauts are being partially chosen on the basis of their skin color--or [wink-wink] in helping NASA achieve "diversity," as the head of the astronaut program once proudly proclaimed.

“Republic Of New Afrika” under Chokwe Lumumba Arrives In Jackson, Mississippi - "This transformation is taking place because 'demography is destiny.'"

“Republic Of New Afrika” Arrives In Jackson, Mississippi

Chokwe Lumumba as Mayor.

Young Chokwe
Mississippi is still burning. Not in the way the New York Times would have you believe, stuck in 1962 with lynchings of innocent blacks imminent at any given moment. Instead, while no one was looking, the capital city of Jackson has quietly become America's Harare.
Just as Africa's breadbasket, Rhodesia, had the name of its capital changed from Salisbury to Harare and became Africa's basketcase, Zimbabwe, racial democracy has spoken in 86% black Jackson. Racial socialist Chokwe Lumumba, the Nation of Islam's new favorite elected official, carried a not coincidental 87 percent of the Mayoralty vote  on June 4. The almost entirely black electorate embraced hisdisturbingly familiar slogan of “One City. One Aim. One Destiny.”[Pictured right, Chokwe Lumumba as a young man.]
Symbolically, Jackson International Airport has now been changed to Jackson-Evers International Airport in 2004. But this is only the first step of Jackson's transformation. One can only speculate when Mayor Lumumba will rename the city in honor of Medgar Eversinstead of the racist white American Andrew Jackson.
This transformation is taking place because, when all is said and done, “demography is destiny.” Because of remarkably swift white flight from Jackson, there was nothing to prevent the black majority from electing a man who thinks Africans visited North America centuries before Columbus. [Lumumba challenges history regarding Christopher Columbus: Presumptive next mayor says Africans visited Americas before Italian explorer, By Dustin Barnes,Clarion-Ledger, May 24, 2013.]
More importantly, just as revanchist Mexicans trumpet “Aztlan” in the American Southwest, Mayor Lumumba has his own vision of a black ethnostate. He once served as “Vice President” of the black “Republic of New Africa,” which claimed five states of the American South. Lumumba sees Jackson as the focal point of what he calls the “Kush District,” a “solid, non-self governing territory” with a black majority that can serve as a base for a new direction “of self-determination, of self-governance, self-economic development.” [Chokwe Lumumba: New mayor, new era for Jackson, Mississippi ?By Askia Muhammad, The Final Call, August 19, 2013.] . . .
