Brussels: Machete-Wielding Woman Attacks

Let’s see if we can guess the political leaning of the attacker, shall we?


Police have shot and wounded the woman – who reportedly attacked two people on a bus before going into the street. She refused to stand down so police opened fire, according to local media. The woman reportedly stabbed on person in the stomach, and one in the back before fleeing to a nearby gallery, RTL reports the injuries sustained by the victims have been described as “non life-threatening.”

The press secretary of the mayor Armand De Decker confirms the two injured. Police are investigating the motive for the attack. Police sources have revealed that the woman was Asian and had a history of mental illness. Investigators do not currently believe that this was a terrorist incident, according to RT.

Brussels has been at the centre of a wave of shocking attacks this summer.

The attacker is “Asian” which is current Euro-girl code for anyone east of Istanbul. She has a history of “mental illness” which is currently Euro-girl code for “Muslim”. Police are still “investigating the motive” which is Euro-girl code for “find anything other than Islam to blame it on”. Just to reinforce their position, they don’t think it was terrorism related.

I’d put the odds at around 85% that the attacker, while “not motivated” by Islam, is a practitioner of the divine art of perpetual outrage.

US Army Lists Hillary Clinton As Insider Security Threat

If she’s elected, the author of this powerpoint is getting fired. Her sycophants will cast a vote for her, anyway.

A leaked Army operational security brief appears to show Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and former CIA Director David Petraeus listed as two key examples of potential insider threats.

Admins of the Facebook page “U.S. Army W.T.F! moments” told The Daily Caller News Foundation this is the second time they’ve received a picture of this particular slide in the last six months. They posted the slide to their page Sunday.

Admins said the picture came from a servicemember stationed at Fort Leonard Wood in Missouri

UPDATE: Open Questions For The Forum

This is directed specifically at those who support Donald Trump’s [& Hillary’s since it’s the same in principle] plan to force American businesses to stay in the US.

What kind of liberty forces you to stay? If you think that business owners should be able to refuse service to anyone, why can’t they likewise control their means of production without interference from the government – or having to pay penalties for going somewhere that’s friendlier to industry? How can you say – on one hand – that the gov’t can’t control your healthcare, but should be able to control your business? If the gov’t tells you where, when, what, and how you can produce – isn’t that “control of the means of production”?

In supporting a government power grab on the means of production, aren’t you acting as Marx’ proletariat in seizing the means of production with a populist movement?

Why is it okay to make some things in other countries, but not others?

Likewise, why is it okay to leave one state for better industrial/economic conditions in another, but not leave countries (the US) for better industrial/economic conditions?


Turns Out Barry Paid The Ransom


Giving the bully your lunch money…only gets your ass kicked more.

WASHINGTON — The State Department admitted Thursday that the United States handed over $400 million in cash to Iran only after Tehran released four American hostages — two weeks after President Obama insisted the payment was not a “ransom.”

State Department spokesman John Kirby was asked at a press briefing: “In basic English, you’re saying you wouldn’t give them $400 million in cash until the prisoners were released, correct?”

“That’s correct,” he replied.

In an Aug. 4 press conference, Obama said the opposite.

“We do not pay ransom. We didn’t here, and we won’t in the future,” the president told reporters, speaking of the January payment and hostage release.

Families “know we have a policy that we don’t pay ransom. And the notion that we would somehow start now, in this high-profile way, and announce it to the world, even as we’re looking in the faces of other hostage families whose loved ones are being held hostage, and saying to them we don’t pay ransom, defies logic,” Obama added at the time.


Sloe Joe & Hillary: Most-Awkward Hug Ever


Video of the awkward hug for context:


Barack Obama: Most-Prolific Arms Dealer In History?

Barry won an undeserved Peace Prize and promptly set about lighting the world on fire and selling military weapons to anyone with enough cash to pay up.

It is not an understatement to say Obama’s tears over gun violence are disingenuous considering his administration has enacted a policy of systematically arming the entire world with all manner of warcraft. According to the Department of Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA), during his first six years in office, the Obama administration entered into agreements to sell more than $190 billion USD in weaponry worldwide.

As the director of the Arms and Security Project at the Center for International Policy, William D. Hartung, states, this figure is higher than any U.S. administration since World War II. Perhaps that is why the Nobel secretary hasvoiced serious regrets about awarding the Peace Prize to the president.


Princeton: “Don’t Use The Word “Man”.

In a move that is sure to shock absolutely no one, Princeton University has ordered it’s faculty to cease using the word “man”. One small step for individuals, one giant leap for humankind…

The Princeton University HR department has largely wiped the word “man” from its vocabulary.

The relatively new policy in effect at the Ivy League institution spells out the directive in a four-page memo that aims to make the department more gender inclusive.

Instead of using “man,” employees are told to use words such as human beings, individuals or people.

Other guidelines? Instead of “man and wife” use spouses or partners. Switch out “man made” with artificial, handmade or manufactured. Don’t use the verb “to man,” as in to work something, instead use to operate or to staff. Throw out workmanlike and replace it with skillful.

The memo goes on to list a variety of occupations that typically include the word “man” in them and offers replacements: business person instead of businessman, firefighter instead of fireman, ancestors instead of forefathers, and so on.

“Consistent with style guidelines issued by Princeton’s Office of Human Resources and Office of Communications, and as endorsed by the Institutional Equity Planning Group as a preferred University practice, HR has developed these gender inclusive style guidelines, to be utilized by all HR staff members in HR communications, policies, job descriptions, and job postings,” the memo states.

In related news, office air conditioning is a big, sexist plot against women wopersons.

Why No One Trusts The Media

Some retard pulled a gun on the cops, in Milwaukee. The police shot & killed him, for his trouble. The shooting was CLEARLY justified. The dead dude’s sister took to CNN, (as they called it) “calling for peace”. The only problem with her ‘call for peace’ is that CNN reported her urging the rioters to not burn down their own neighborhoods – while deliberately editing out the very next sentence, where this upstanding sister urged the rioters to “take that shit to the suburbs” [thereby intentionally misrepresenting the entire statement].

The American public is being psy-op’d into a race war. Don’t fall for it. People are individuals, not races, tribes, countries, etc. The media – with the encouragement of the domestic menace in the white house – is pushing a narrative of hate and division to destabilize our country. Have faith in God and love your neighbor, but lock your doors, conceal your carry, and protect yourself by maintaining your situational awareness and not putting yourself in a position to have to use lethal force.


What’s The Worst Nightmare Of The Talibastards?

Twin Navy SEAL brothers.


Most of you are familiar with the man, Marcus Luttrell. He was the only survivor of a 4 man team sent into the Afghan mountains, Kunar Province, in search of a high value target during Operation Red Wings. The recon & surveillance mission went sideways when his team was spotted by a local boy who sold them out after they decided not to kill him. Luttrell then spent 3 weeks being protected by Afghan villagers, from Ahmad Shah, the man they were originally sent to reconnoiter.

As an added warm-and-fuzzy, Ahmad Shah was seriously wounded in Operation Red Wings II [recovery mission] and later killed in a shootout with Pakistani police.

As famous as Marcus Luttrell has become [especially in the veteran community – he’s very active], few people seem to know that he has a twin brother named Morgan. Morgan is also a former Navy SEAL.

Morgan joined the Navy after graduating from Sam Houston State University with a degree in psychology. After eight years of enlisted service, Morgan became a commissioned officer and served 14 years with Naval Special Warfare and the SEAL teams, retiring as a Lieutenant. With nine combat deployments in support of Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom, during which he sustained a traumatic brain injury [TBI] due to an explosion, Morgan joined the Brain Performance Institute and the Center for Brain Health at the University of Texas – Dallas.

He is currently a Research Assistant at the Institute, while completing his PHD in Applied Cognition, so that he can spend the rest of his life helping other warriors with PTSD & the cognitive issues consistent with TBI. These men spent years killing mujj and beating the best the Taliban had to throw at them, offering their lives to defend our nation. For that, they are worthy of our honor & respect. That both continue to serve the men & women who fought alongside them, is a testament to the character of these amazing men. They must’ve been raised in a solid family.

Marcus Luttrell Wrote a stirring tribute to his brother Morgan, which can be seen here.

An excerpt is below:

Veteran of the day goes to my twin brother, Morgan. He is the reason we joined the SEAL teams. He is the definition of Never Quit. He leads by example and I look up to him with every fiber of my being. If you see someone in the DFW area and think it’s me, it’s not. Morgan served in Iraq and Afghanistan, he’s a hell of a war fighter and I hope if you come across him you would give him the same respect you would give me or any other service member[…] It’s been an honor being your twin brother and I have looked up to you my whole life I remember since we were boys that people always called me by your name I remember feeling honored that someone would think I was you.

I tip my hat to the brothers Luttrell. Thank you for your service to this great nation and your continuing dedication to the men & women who fought alongside you.


George Soros Got Hacked

I can’t wait to see what comes out of these leaks.

Last Thursday, as Bloomberg was gingerly setting the stage, and the preemptive damage control for what was about to be a historic leak, it did everything in its power to deflect attention from the key topic, namely that prominent liberal billionaire and Hillary supporter, George Soros had been hacked and countless documents were about to be leaked, and instead focus on the alleged identity of the hackers, the so-called DCLeaks, which – like all other “experts” – it positioned as yet another Russian government-sponsored operation.

To this we had one retort: “Far more important than the inane speculation on the hackers’ identity, is the now official disclosure – and warning – that Soros himself was hacked. Bloomberg writes that Open Society Foundations, the Soros group, reported the breach to the Federal Bureau of Investigation in June, according to spokeswoman Laura Silber, who added that an investigation by a security firm found the intrusion was limited to an intranet system used by board members, staff and foundation partners.”

And, sure enough, over the weekend that is precisely what DCLeaks revealed as it disclosed over two thousand internal documents from groups run by George Soros were leaked online Saturday after hackers infiltrated the groups. The 2,576 files were released by DCLeaks, a website which claims to be “launched by the American hacktivists who respect and appreciate freedom of speech, human rights and government of the people.”

The documents are from multiple departments of Soros’ organizations. Soros’ the Open Society Foundations seems to be the group with the most documents in the leak. Files come from sections representing almost all geographical regions in the world, from the USA, to Europe, Eurasia, Asia, Latin, America, Africa, the World Bank “the President’s Office”, as well as an unknown entity named SOUK. As the Daily Caller notes, there are documents dating from at least 2008 to 2016.

UPDATE: Mid-Morning Milwaukee Melee Madness

Three black men (yeah…3) have been killed by cops this year in Milwaukee. All of them had weapons.

Watch how this child starts out unsure of himself but becomes more enraged as the interview goes on. This is what happens to a child who is allowed to engage in tyrannical behavior. The longer they go without getting their ass beat, the louder and more defiant they become.

More below the fold…


Libertarian Party VP Candidate Is Statist Pig Too

It’s a shame when the Libertarian Party VP nominee says something that sounds like Hillary Clinton.

The Libertarian Party candidate for Vice President Governor Bill Weld referred to rifles as “weapons of mass destruction” in an interview with Revolt TV wherein Weld was asked his position on gun rights.

The former Governor of Massachusetts declared his support for banning individuals on the terrorist watch list from purchasing firearms.

William Weld:
“The five shot rifle, that’s a standard military rifle; the problem is if you attach a clip to it so it can fire more shells and if you remove the pin so that it becomes an automatic weapon, and those are independent criminal offenses. That is when they become, essentially a weapon of mass destruction. The problem with handguns probably is even worse than the problem of the AR15.”

Amrit Singh:
“What can you do to help control this flow of guns, if anything?”

William Weld:
“You shouldn’t have anybody who is on the terrorist watch list buy any gun at all.”

The libertarian candidate for vice president just argued for removing a Constitutional right from individuals on a government list without due process.

He is from MA…


Donald Trump & His Enormous Ego


The vast majority of Americans can find common ground on several issues. They may not be able to find a common solution, but common grievance is enough to rally the disaffected masses. To win decisively in november, Donald Trump need only focus on five things. He needs to maintain a stranglehold on these 5 areas and control the conversation. He can’t because his ego is YUGE and won’t allow him to stick to the script.

Foreign Policy: Walk softly & carry a big, loud stick…of dynamite. Most foreigners see us as a bully just out looking for a fight. Focusing on our own country could prevent a ground war [and potentially, a nuclear war] with Russia & China. Is there any reason we [the American people] would be willing to get into a hot war with either country[absent a Pearl Harbor style sucker-punch]? Hillary Clinton never saw an intervention she didn’t like. She will continue the Bush/Obama legacy of war-without-end. If he hammers this, he can win some hearts & minds. Don’t push others around, just make ourselves “…so big, so strong, so powerful, nobody is going to mess with us.”

Military Interventionism: Don’t engage in it unless there is a clear & present danger to the United States. “We will never enter into any conflict unless it makes us safer as a nation.” Words to live by…

Clinton Corruption: Nearly half of the Democratic voting block is disgusted with the way their nutjob was treated. Donald has a veritable gold mine of Clinton corruption to pick apart. All he has to do is focus.

Trade Agreements: Most people don’t understand macro-economics. Donald Trump can leverage this [and has] to sweeten the pot for the disenfranchised American workforce. They don’t have to understand how the whole thing works, when they understand how their town was destroyed when the companies that made the town sold out and shipped their jobs overseas. Hillary Clinton supported the most visible of these managed-trade agreements: NAFTA. Donald could leverage this, if were able to maintain focus, but again, YUGE ego.

Crony Capitalism: Almost all Americans are sick of the cronies who are destroying our country. Again, common solutions aren’t easy to come by, but common grievance is. Refine the attack and keep pushing it until the election.

If Donald Trump were able to focus on these few areas, he could lock up the election, but he won’t. His ego forces him down rabbit holes and gets him into hot water. As soon as he goes off-message, he gives the media the fodder needed to cover up for Hillary’s corruption-du-jour.

As we all know, any excuse will work to cover Hillary’s sins in the eyes of her mindless ideologues. They don’t care how evil she is, she’s the progressive candidate. They will never vote for a Republican.

Likewise, I will never vote for a big government progressive. Hence, my refusal to vote for Trump.

Donald Trump speaking his mind is only valuable to those who think in a likewise manner. He has a second-rate intellect and it shows every single time he answers a question. If he were able to focus on the issues with which most Americans have a problem, he could win in a landslide.

Gangs Of Chiraq: Target Cops W/Automatic Weapons, Sniper

This is not going to end well. These fools are going to get killed and/or jailed and accomplish nothing more than furthering tightening the noose on American civil liberties. This BLM movement will be the casus belli against free people across the nation. Police will ultimately be given whatever powers the politicians think they need. Desperate times & all that… The toothpaste is never squeezed back into the tube.

Leaders from three West Side gang factions allegedly met last week to discuss plans to shoot members of the Chicago Police Department in response to the fatal police shooting of Paul O’Neal.

The meeting took place Thursday between higher-ups from the Vice Lords, Black Disciples and Four Corner Hustlers, according to an alert issued to department members the day after the meeting.

The Four Corner Hustlers “provided guns” and have “a sniper in place” though authorities do not know where, according to the alert. The Four Corner Hustlers also are supplying the other two gangs with automatic weapons, which all three factions also have agreed to use against police, the alert states.

The three gangs are located primarily in the Austin and Harrison districts, which cover much of the West Side.

In an email Monday afternoon, department spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said: “To safeguard the integrity of operations, the department does not comment on any security measures.”

According to police sources, department members have also been advised to “limit interactions and visibility.”


Politicians “Threatening” Each Other?

Sloe Joe in 2008:

“I guarantee ya. Barack Obama ain’t takin’ my shotgun, so don’t buy that malarkey, don’t buy that malarkey. They’re gonna start peddlin’ that deal. I got two, if he tries to fool with my Beretta he’s got a problem. I like that little over and under–you know I’m not bad with it.”

Shrill Hill in May, 2008:
“We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California.” . . .

Same scrunt in March, 2008:
“Primary contests used to last a lot longer. We all remember the great tragedy of Bobby Kennedy being assassinated in June in L.A.”

Let’s not forget this slice of Americana.


Democrat Strategist Bob Beckel Calls For Assange Assassination

No nuance in these words. He says that we should “…illegally shoot the son of a bitch…”


The Philippine Islands Have Their Own Crass Leader

Loud-mouth leaders who “make great deals” are YUGE these days.

It appears there are no limits to what Philippines’ President Rodrigo Duterte will do or say. After admiting that his government had killed 400 drug dealers in the last month alone, Duterte’s latest victim is none other than the US’ Ambassador to the Phillipines Philip Goldberg.

As reported earlier this week, Duterte met with both Goldberg and John Kerry in late July to discuss the response to Manila winning an international court case against China at the Permanent Court of Arbitration at the Hague. Kerry… is “okay, but I had an argument with their ambassador, that bakla [homosexual]. Son of a bitch, he really annoys me.” There is no record of Goldberg publicly identifying as gay, indicating Duterte meant to use the word purely derisively.”

The feud between Goldberg and Duterte stems from the time that the Philippine was still a presidential candidate. During the campaign, Duterte made a joke about a gang rape episode that took place during his time as governor […] was only a tragedy because he himself did not get to have sex with her first.

“Any statements by anyone, anywhere that either degrade women or trivialize issues so serious as rape or murder, are not ones that we condone,” Goldberg said at the time.

Then-candidate Duterte responded with a promise he has yet to accomplish: he said he would sever all diplomatic ties with the US and would give the US “a shit” if Goldberg did not “shut your mouth. […] Duterte also praised himself for insulting Americans. “This is great!” he told the audience, “let’s insult them again so these fools try to make amends again.”

This follows after Kerry inked a deal for America to provide the Philippines with $32 million to use in Duterte’s war on drugs, a cornerstone of his presidential campaign.

Seriously, this guy reminds me of Donald Trump. And John Kerry’s negotiation surprises… not even a little bit.

A Brief Encounter With An Old Vet

I was sitting on the ferry on Monday with my backpack next to me.


A Vietnam vet saw my patch and asked if I served. I said I had and talked with him for a minute before he pulled out a Military Payment Certificate, in the $0.05 denomination, and explained their history, purpose, and use.


He gave me the certificate and thanked me for my service. Always uncomfortable when that happens, I told him I’m glad he made it home. He encouraged me to read up on the program and said he would quiz me this week. Then, he left to find two more veterans to share a minute of his life with. It was a nice exchange and I’m glad I met him. The program was interesting. Check it out.

MPCs evolved from Allied Military Currency as a response to the large amounts of US Dollars circulated by American servicemen in post-World War II Europe. The local citizens might not trust local currencies, as the future of their governments was unclear. Preferring a stable currency like U.S. dollars, local civilians often accepted payment in dollars for less than the accepted conversion rates. Dollars became more favorable to hold, inflating the local currencies and thwarting plans to stabilize local economies. Contributing to this problem was the fact that troops were being paid in dollars, which they could convert in unlimited amounts to the local currency with merchants at the floating (black market) conversion rate, which was much more favorable to the GIs than the government fixed conversion rate. From this conversion rate imbalance, a black market developed where the servicemen could profit from the more favorable exchange rate.[citation needed]

To reduce profiteering from currency arbitrage, the U.S. military devised the MPC program. MPCs were paper money denominated in amounts of 5 cents, 10 cents, 25 cents, 50 cents, 1 dollar, 5 dollars, 10 dollars, and starting in 1968 20 dollars. MPCs were fully convertible to U.S. dollars upon leaving a designated MPC zone, and convertible to local currencies when going on leave (but not vice versa). It was illegal for unauthorized personnel to possess MPC, and that policy, in theory, eliminated U.S. dollars from local economies. Although actual greenbacks were not circulating, many local merchants accepted MPC on par with US dollars, since they could use them on the black market. This was especially evident during the Vietnam War when the MPC program was at its zenith. To prevent MPC from being used as a primary currency in the host country and destroying the local currency value and economy, MPC banknote styles were frequently changed to deter black marketers and reduce hoarding, as the old style would become worthless. Many veterans can recount a conversion day or C-Day.

Just imagine how inflation we’ve suffered, if it was cost-effective to print 5 cent notes in 1968. How much of your labor has the Federal Reserve [and govt] stolen from you over a lifetime, via the “most insidious tax”?


Can Anyone Stop Hillary? Reason 1,246 Why Polling Is Unreliable.


Older dates start at the bottom and move up to the present:

Look at the wild swings from day-to-day. No reasonable person can see such movement as anything more than a sampling being chosen either A) Completely at random B) To reach a pre-determined outcome or C) Deriving from such a small demographic as to not be representative of the larger voting demographic.

Think about it. If you want a poll of support for globalization to skew in your favor, do you sample from middle America, or the coasts?


Open Question For The Forum


Over the years, I have had my attention drawn to the “John Birch Society” on many occasions. Most times, the name is used as a slur. I always look them up briefly and read what they’re about. Never once has anything I’ve read made me recoil. I find myself aligned quite nicely with their views, which leads me to the Open Question:

What the hell is wrong with the John Birch Society, and why do people use their name derisively?

Am I missing something? I check their site, wikipedia, and others. Hell, even the crypto-marxist, ultra-left wing SPLC has only labeled them as a “Patriot Group”. None have anything worse than some accusations of conspiracy-nuttery. I’d say that their conspiracy-theorizing with relation to the creeping communist agenda in America has borne out as conspiracy-fact. The domestic menace they’ve described since their founding has been in control for the past 8 years.

So, what’s the problem?


CNN: America Has Enough Tall, Rich, White Guys


W. Kamau Bell, host of CNN’s “United Shades of America,” described the swimming sensation as a “tall, successful, rich white guy” who clearly didn’t “need the honor.”

“With 22 Olympic medals, you are already the most decorated athlete in Olympic history[…] Muhammad carrying the flag would be much bigger than your one moment,” Bell writes. “It would be a symbol for our country in this moment when we are mostly known for one of the most contentious, controversial, scandal-ridden, hateful, xenophobic, jingoistic, and just generally unlikable presidential elections in recent memory. This is at a time when we could use some more symbols of unity and togetherness.”

Bell referred to Muhammad as “a one-stop inclusion shop due to her race, sex and religion. Phelps, on the other hand was something else entirely. “No offense, but right now America has enough tall, successful, rich white guys hogging the spotlight trying to make America great,” he said, in an obvious reference to Donald Trump.

If only they could find a black, gay, trans-gendered, disabled, atheist, hermaphrodite, pedophile, orphaned, felon… then, they’d have all the bases covered. Or, perhaps the black, muslim, woman could wait until she’s actually accomplished something for Team America, before she gets honored [by her teammates who decided the flag-bearer].


Sanders Activist Who Served DNC With Fraud Suit, Found Dead

I’m sure it’s a coincidence. He probably left a note exonerating the Clintons.

On July 3, 2016, Shawn Lucas and filmmaker Ricardo Villaba served the DNC Services Corp. and Chairperson Debbie Wasserman Schultz at DNC’s headquarters in Washington, D.C., in the fraud class action suit against the Democrat Party on behalf of Bernie Sanders supporters. Shawn Lucas was thrilled about serving the papers to the DNC before Independence Day.

** This was before Wikileaks released documents proving the DNC was working against the Sanders campaign during the 2016 primary.

Apparently, he isn’t the only young Democrat having trouble keeping track of his existence…

This follows the death of 27 year-old Democratic staffer Seth Conrad Rich who was murdered in Washington DC on July 8. The killer or killers appear to have taken nothing from their victim, leaving behind his wallet, watch and phone.

Shortly after the killing, Redditors and social media users were pursuing a “lead” saying that Rich was en route to the FBI the morning of his murder, apparently intending to speak to special agents about an “ongoing court case” possibly involving the Clinton family.

Clinton could shoot someone in the face, on Fifth Avenue, in broad daylight and her drones would still vote for her. To be clear, I’m not saying she did anything illegal in these two cases, though I have no trouble believing she ordered Vince Foster’s murder [I don’t have any knowledge that she did]. I really hate her evilness.


Our Leaders Are Pushing Us To The Brink Of War

Vladimir Putin’s speech below shows the Russian Leader imploring the media to pay attention to what’s happening. Barack Obama has been pushing, poking, and prodding the Russians and Chinese into acting so we have a reason to justify warring against them. I called it a few years back (and many times) in the written record contained in these pages. We will be neck-deep in WWIII long before the end of this decade…which is getting pretty short.

This slow escalation between East & West is driven (at it’s root) by American dollar hegemony. As the world’s reserve currency, we have certain capabilities which we have been abusing for some time. Our country has morphed over the decades since WWII, from a nation of modest ambition and practical self-defense to the world’s bully. We have destroyed nations and forced the world to bend to our will. The BRICS nations decided to move in their own direction and challenge us at the top of the heap. They’re getting closer by the day.

We live in VERY perilous times.
