WaTimes: Border wall stopped ‘chaos’ in Arizona - "Nothing will work--they'll just keep coming!" --Every liberal for last 20 years. --tma



A triple layer of fencing, more Border Patrol agents and bollard-style barriers along the border have reduced illegal crossings from Mexico into Yuma, Arizona, by nearly 90 percent. President Trump is due to visit the border town, considered a monumental success, on Tuesday. (Associated Press)


The last time a president visited the border in Yuma, Arizona, was 2007, when then-President George W. Bush came to oversee the massive fence-building campaign he’d begun a year earlier, hoping to get a handle on the sea of illegal immigrants flowing north.
Ten years later, as President Trump visits Yuma on Tuesday, the region is considered one of the border’s clearest success stories.
A surge in fencing and Border Patrol agents and a get-tough approach to prosecuting illegal immigrants have produced results that once seemed unimaginable. ...

[Globalist] Yahoo: Paris revels in tourism surge, but cautious after Barcelona - Maybe Paris street Afro shantytowns are a big draw! --tma





PARIS (Reuters) - Paris is on track to welcome more tourists this year than ever before after a bumper first half, a senior official said, though some would-be visitors might think again after the Barcelona attack.
The Paris region registered 16.4 million arrivals in the six months to June, its tourist board said on Tuesday.
That was the most in any first half of the year since current records began in 2008, confirming a strong recovery from a lull that followed Islamist attacks in the French capital in November 2015 that killed 130 people. ...

Hill: Phoenix on high alert for Trump rally - Charlottesville: formula Globalists hope to use to kill America --tma






Political leaders and law enforcement officials in Arizona are on high alert ahead of President Trump’s campaign rally Tuesday night in Phoenix.
The big question is whether there will be more supporters of Trump inside the Phoenix Convention Center, which holds 29,000, or protestors outside.
Trump’s response to the violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., has become the biggest controversy to date of his presidency.
The Phoenix rally, as a result, has become an opportunity for Trump’s opponents to show their force.

Some GOP leaders, such as Gov. Doug Ducey, are steering clear of the rally entirely.
Trump is moving ahead with the event despite a plea from Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton, a Democrat, that he stay away. ...

Daily Caller - The Atlantic finds the "strange path" of solar eclipse "racist"



Image result for solar eclipse 2017 map


The Atlantic, a once-great magazine, has determined that the total eclipse of the sun due to occur on Monday will fail to affect enough black people.
The Atlantic’s very lengthy essay on the failure of the eclipse to occur where a sufficient number of black people reside is entitled “American Blackout.” It clocks in at a remarkable 4,544 words and does not appear to be satire.
Concerning “the Great American Eclipse,” Brooklyn Law School professor Alice Ristroph writes in the rapidly deteriorating magazine, “there live almost no black people” “along most of its path.”
The Atlantic’s longwinded law professor assures readers that “implicit bias of the solar system” is “presumably” not the cause of eclipse’s failure to affect enough black people.
“Still, an eclipse chaser is always tempted to believe that the skies are relaying a message.”
Oregon, where the eclipse will first appear in the continental United States, “is almost entirely white.” ...


Witch-Hunt News: VDare's (Not White-nationalist. Not in Charlottesville) PayPal account & conference reservations cancelled






Friday August 18 is the 430thbirthday of Virginia Dare.  Incredibly, her 350th birthday was celebrated by a speech from Democratic Party hero President Franklin D. Roosevelt, who also personally helped design the commemorative stamp. But on present form, it may seem that her statue won’t even be in Roanoke’s Elizabethan Gardens in on her 450thbirthday in 2037—it will have been torn down by a Communist mob tacitly supported by Democrat politicians (probably related) and replaced with a statue of Malia Obama. VDARE.com’s message: stay the course. The Lost Colony ended in utter disaster, but Virginia Dare’s memory was sacred when America rose to rule the world.
VDARE.com played absolutely no part no role in last Saturday’s Unite The Right Rally in Charlottesville Va. None of our principals were invited to speak. None of us attended. We didn’t even publicize it beforehand.
But, needless to say, none of this made the least difference. We have still been cut off from PayPal with no explanation after paying its gouging commissions for processing donations for over ten years. We have still been cancelled out of our conference by the Cheyenne Mountain Lodge (which had to pay a stiff penalty to do it), cheered on by Alt-Left Communist fellow-travelers like Sen.

[Globalist] Reuters - Merkel, called 'Traitor!' - 900k refugees in 2015, 1/3 that last year - Saxony: My new favorite part of Germany --tma





ANNABERG-BUCHHOLZ, Germany (Reuters) - German Chancellor Angela Merkel was greeted with shouts of "traitor" by a rowdy group of right-wing protesters in east Germany on Thursday as she defended her decision to allow hundreds of thousands of refugees into the country.

Roughly five weeks before an election in which she is expected to win a record-tying fourth term, Merkel veered from her stump speech, acknowledging "difficult times" in 2015 when a flood of asylum seekers, many from the Middle East, entered Germany.

It was her first campaign stop in eastern Germany, parts of which have been fertile ground for anti-immigration politics.

"Many people were worried. They said to themselves: 'What about us? Are we still important or are only the refugees important'?" she told a crowd of several thousand in the central market square in Annaberg-Buchholz, a town in the state of Saxony near the Czech border.

Saxony was the focal point of anti-Islam protests that erupted in Germany during the refugee crisis. The anti-immigration Alternative for Germany (AfD) is particularly strong in the state and dozens of its supporters turned up to shout down Merkel. ...

Coulter - People like Rubio and Romney instruct us that liberals clubbing people are pure at heart



A myth so powerful many Republicans believe it.
Apparently, as long as violent leftists label their victims “fascists,” they are free to set fires, smash windows and beat civilians bloody. No police officer will stop them. They have carte blanche to physically assault anyone they disapprove of, including Charles Murray, Heather Mac Donald, Ben Shapiro, me and Milo Yiannopoulos, as well as anyone who wanted to hear us speak.
Even far-left liberals like Evergreen State professor Bret Weinstein will be stripped of police protection solely because the mob called him a “racist.”
If the liberal shock troops deem local Republicans “Nazis” — because some of them support the duly elected Republican president — Portland will cancel the annual Rose Festival parade rather than allow any Trump supporters to march.
They’re all “fascists”! Ipso facto, the people cracking their skulls and smashing store windows are “anti-fascists,” or as they call themselves, “antifa.”
We have no way of knowing if the speakers at the Charlottesville “Unite the Right” rally last weekend were “Nazis,” “white supremacists” or passionate Civil War buffs, inasmuch as they weren’t allowed to speak. The Democratic governor shut the event down, despite a court order to let it proceed. ...

WND - Kennewick, WA: Just another day in small town USA--Somali refugee tries to behead cop




A 46-year-old Somali refugee identified as Hussein Hassan attacked a police officer in Kennewick, Washington, over the weekend with a large sword, striking at the officer’s head before he was shot and killed.
A spokesman for the police said two officers responded to a 9-1-1 call at 6:38 p.m. Sunday about a man walking down Olympia Street near 10th Avenue armed with a sword.
The two officers arrived on the scene at the same time in separate cars at about 6:40 p.m. One officer got out of his car to confront Hassan and police say the man started swinging the sword, striking the officer at least once in the head with the blade.
Both officers opened fire on the suspect and put him down.

NPI: Charlottesville Story Other Side - City ignored right-of-assembly court order, ordered cops to stand down, attack peaceful marchers, then shoved them toward awaiting violent Antifa






[ ... ]

It was easy to be elated after Friday night. One might have found it equally easy to be dispirited on Saturday.

Instead of executing safety and security plans that had been coordinated with event organizers over a period of months, police obeyed stand-down orders from above, until swinging boldly into action and exerting their force ... against us.

It was shocking to hear blared from police loudspeakers the declaration that our assembly was unlawful and that we would be forcibly dispersed if we did not leave. Once the shock passed, it became clear that this was the authorities' plan all along--to corral us into a small area of Lee Park and, once we were inside, deploy a waiting line of riot police to push, kick, and beat us until we withdrew from the Park and into the violent mob that waited to attack us.

Our Executive Director, Evan McLaren, was knocked to the ground, arrested, and placed in the back of a police vehicle. I struggled against the riot police until I was obliged to escape through the crowd of antifascists, ducking bottles and dodging punches. ...

Mad Max (USA Today)

Future historians may view the Unite the Right event in Charlottesville as a turning point for the alt-right and the race-realist movement in America.
Before Charlottesville, many of us believed that the government—bound by the First Amendment—would respect our free speech, even if private corporations would fire and blacklist any employee who takes our side.
Then, on Saturday, we saw the Charlottesville city government ignore a federal court order permitting a pro-white rally, declare the gathering of white activists unlawful, and effectively endorse exactly the type of “heckler’s veto” that the First Amendment forbids. We saw the police forcibly disperse pro-white activists while allowing antifa to violently rampage, throwing bricks, urine, and feces at rightists with impunity. And then, after the pro-whites had been dispersed, when a car struck a crowd of antifa—for reasons still unclear—we saw the entire Establishment media rush to denounce the alt-right as a “domestic terrorist organization.” ...

As the dust settled after Saturday’s deadly white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, President Trump was stung by a political backlash from both sides, with leading Republicans condemning what they saw as a tepid response and a failure to call evil by its name.
After a counterprotester was killed [from what I read, by a deranged Lefty] when a car plowed into her and two Virginia state troopers died in a helicopter crash, the president had an opportunity to dispense fully with the notion that he welcomed the support of fringe right-wing groups, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and anti-Semites. [It is really the word 'white' that scares RHINO's and the Washington Times so much.]
Such charges have dogged Mr. Trump since the beginning of his presidential campaign, and his vice president used a trip to South America to push back against the charge. ....
     "Such charges," like "Russian collusion," have "dogged" Trump since the beginning of his campaign because they have been part of an organized effort by the Globalists to destroy him.

The Local - Merkel kicking off campaign - wildly popular - voters upset by "turbulent" Trump and Brexit - open-borders challenger --tma




German Chancellor Angela Merkel has returned from a three-week Alpine holiday to embark Saturday on what may be the most bizarre election campaign in the country's post-war history.
After months of studiously ignoring the race for the September 24th election, Merkel will kick off a series of rallies across the country with an hour-long speech to supporters in the western city of Dortmund.

But just six weeks out from the European Union's top economic power and most populous nation going to the polls, Germans are barely taking notice of the election.

Even after 12 years in power, Merkel, frequently called the world's most powerful woman and Europe's de facto leader, looks set for a fourth term.

Gone are the warnings of her political demise heard at the height of the 2015 refugee influx, when nearly 900,000 asylum seekers entered the country.

Merkel's conservative Christian Democrats (CDU) lead their closest rivals, the Social Democrats (SPD), by a 12-to-17-point margin, meaning it would take a political earthquake to shift the field at this point. ...

Whereby a PC / Political Correctness Grade is conferred upon the crime thriller 'Hush,' by Kate White, 2010, HarperCollins, 341 pp.



Image result for novel hush by kate white


The Political Correctness Grade will be determined by using a Pass/Fail System, with ‘Pass’ meaning the writing of a sane honest writer not in the thrall of PC, nor intimidated by it, nor wanting to employ PC for virtue-signaling aimed at social or career climbing. 

In addition, an overall letter grade is provided summing up all other aspects of the book’s writing.

Political correctness grade for 'Hush': Pass

After you peel away the layers, political correctness is primarily about race, with PC trying to impose a moral racial hierarchy that presents a false narrative, an untrue picture of our society, looking toward a happy future Multi-Cultural Marxist utopia--which of course will be a nightmare. Although usually making an exception for the protagonist and his or her love interest–after all most writers and readers of such novels are European ethnics--Whites are presented on the bottom of that hierarchy. 

Believe it or not, I do not harbor any ill feelings toward various other races or ‘lifestyles,’ but am highly critical of the PC agenda that has been imposed upon us for decades. Of course, the center of the PC Dark Star is Hollywood. Long ago PC also took over our educational system, and so forth. You can find it everywhere, including the lion’s share of all fiction. For example, I’ve about given up on courtroom thrillers because they usually deal with big city politics and therefore are usually mind-numbingly PC.

Awhile back I began reading one police detective thriller that soon started describing the best friend of the protagonist hero. This was his good buddy back in school. Handsome. Brilliant. Personality plus. Upon leaving school he had become a professional major league quarterback. And a European American! What gives? Well, I wasn’t born yesterday. I’m too familiar with PC to be fooled. Kept waiting for the other shoe to drop. And sure enough it did. This perfect friend, ultimate buddy, a paragon of looks, talent, intelligence, athletic ability and personality was ... gay. Obviously this set of circumstances would not be impossible in the real world. It is just that authors MUST make such choices over and over again in almost all fiction. It becomes unintentionally comical. 

Of Course, if any one of us, in our nonfiction lives, were to go about our daily activities we could quite possibly run into such exemplary examples of various racial and lifestyle minorities. That is why a couple of minor examples of this in one book, like 'Hush,' can still get an author a passing grade.

In the case of 'Hush,' there are the two homicide detectives, the Black one, of course, with the “kind eyes.” There is also the next-door neighbors at the vacation house who are predictably the salt-of-the-earth wonderful gay couple.

The first example again demonstrates that multiracial societies do not work. How so?

Because they fail the test of reversibility. If you had two homicide detectives and you, as the author, made the point that the White one was the one with “kind eyes” it would be, if not ‘racist,’ a very suspect choice. Even when it comes to lifestyles you run into some of the same problems. If you were to include a gay couple in your novel and they were complete jerks, readers would wonder why in the world you had made such writing choice. In general, straight White, especially men, especially Christians are the only ones permitted to be seriously flawed. 

Otherwise there would be a fermenting speculation. Hmm, could you be a ‘hater’? What in the heck is wrong with you anyway? As the Church Lady might ask, “Could it be ... SATAN?!”  Maybe you are the type who become unglued at the mere thought of a happy festive LGBTQ rainbow pride parade? All of which edges you closer to being The Pariah–someone who dwells on the Dark Side. 

LGBTQ aside, race remains the true ‘third rail,’ where being un-PC can destroy your career, your social life, including marriage prospects, and income, which is how it was designed. A person on the Left might smirkingly ask, ‘You mean a conspiracy?’ Well, some things can be accomplished because some people are working in semi-concert because they see those things as benefitting themselves or even required for their survival, but that is not necessarily saying that everything is–all together now–‘one big conspiracy.’ Or another fun way to answer the Left today on this conspiracy charge: You mean like the Trump campaign Russia! Russia! Russia! collusion conspiracy? Supported by, to date, no actual shred of hard evidence?

On the over all writing grade for 'Hush': B

A ‘B’ may sound lackluster, but it is a good solid well earned B. I’m not like one of those blurb-type writers who enthuse about every book they read as if each one is the best book they ever read.

Somehow it seems surprising to yours truly that there are so many women who write crime thrillers. However the more good writers--both women and men--the better. Some of the female crime and suspense thriller authors tilt in the direction of appealing more to women readers, which is true of 'Hush,' and of course, there is nothing wrong with that.

'Hush' is smoothly and professionally written by a successful author of many books, a work of good pacing, at different times quietly suspenseful and a full-throttled thriller. There are also flashes of sparkling humor, such as the main character, Lake Warren, describing a section of New York City as a combination of Old New York and 'Blade Runner.'

As they say, a good read, much appreciated by this humble blogger.
