The Threat to Notre Dame
Post Date: 2019-04-22 08:08:51 by Ada
Monday’s fire was bad enough; the restoration could be worse. President Macron’s speech to the French nation about the fire that destroyed so much of Notre Dame contained a terrible threat: he said that the cathedral would be rebuilt, to be even more beautiful than before. This might seem an innocuous, even laudable aim, but the announcement of Prime Minister Édouard Philippe that a competition would be held to design “a spire suited to the techniques and challenges of our time” should send a chill down the spine of anyone familiar with the efforts of modern architects in Paris, the effects of which can be seen all around the city. The monumental public ...

The road to hell is paved with good intentions. What price will society pay for China’s social credit system?
Post Date: 2019-04-18 08:01:22 by Tatarewicz
We are now witnessing this frightening social trend being rolled out in a big way in mainland China, which has begun to experiment with a “social credit system”, which many observers have warned could ultimately increase the collection and sharing of data about all citizens, to their detriment. The central government first announced the scheme in 2014, with a nationwide roll-out expected next year. So far, the blacklisting of citizens has been applied to limited travel for some low scorers. And a few dozen cities have already tested their local social credit scoring schemes. The central government says it is just a way to make society more harmonious by incentivising citizens, ...

Why ageing China won’t overtake the US economy as the world’s biggest – now or in the future
Post Date: 2019-04-10 03:11:34 by Tatarewicz
SCMP... Growth trajectories must take into account that China is ageing faster than the US. The experiences of Japan, Taiwan and South Korea bear out the correlation between growth and demographics, and economists optimistic about China’s growth prospects should take note China's GDP growth slowed from 9.5 per cent in 2011 to 6.6 per cent in 2018. The slowdown can be blamed on a variety of factors, but the first and probably most important is that China is getting older. Photo: Reuters In 2010, China replaced Japan as the world's second-largest economy. Many economists believe it is just a matter of time before China dethrones the United States as the world’s biggest ...

It's not fake news; it's simply yellow journalism: Analyst
Post Date: 2019-03-22 03:27:48 by Tatarewicz
US President Donald Trump is correct in the overall denunciation of the news media as fake, but a much better and more accurate term for it is yellow journalism, according to Myles Hoenig, an American political analyst and activist. Hoenig, a former Green Party candidate for Congress, made the remarks in an interview with Press TV on Thursday after Trump described the mainstream media as "fake news" and the "absolute enemy" of the people and the country. Trump renewed his attacks on mainstream media on Tuesday. He labeled the "Fake News Media" as "dishonest" and "corrupt," lamenting that "there has never been a time like this in ...

Media Magic: How a Democrat Pedophile Became a ‘Trump Scandal’
Post Date: 2019-03-07 19:50:18 by Dakmar
Strangely, the media have suddenly taken an intense interest in the case of pedophile and major Democratic donor Jeffrey Epstein. In 2005, the Palm Beach police were told by the mother of a young girl in West Palm Beach that her daughter had been brought to the Democratic donor’s mansion and asked to have sex with him for money. This kicked off an intensive, one-year undercover investigation. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-1540311543171-0'); }); The police sifted through Epstein’s garbage and interviewed 17 witnesses, including the housemen, who told of sex toys and dildos left behind after the underage girls left. One of Epstein’s ...

The New Narrative
Post Date: 2019-02-25 18:27:37 by X-15
Spend time in a small business that has stood the test of time and you will learn the origin myths of the company and the founders. These myths will have plenty of truth content, but a lot will be fanciful or exaggerated. One reason is the story is inevitably told by the founder or his heirs, so it is self-serving. Another reason is the story is intended to give meaning and purpose to the people in the company. For an origin myth to work, it has to be inspirational and reflect well on the people in the organization. People always have origin myths, of course. The most famous of which is the story of the Jews. The whole chosen people business is obvious nonsense. The flight from Egypt is at ...

Heroic Italians Call Out Franco-Germanic Hypocrites on Venezuela
Post Date: 2019-02-09 11:13:02 by Ada
"We go to battle against the plutocratic and reactionary democracies of the West." It’s comically ironic. France has now recalled its ambassador from Rome in a mounting row over Italy’s alleged “interference” in French internal political affairs. This is at the same that France and other European states are joining in a brazen campaign by the United States to overthrow the elected president of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro. Irony doesn’t come much thicker than that. The row between France and Italy is but the latest in a long-running spat between French President Emmanuel Macron and the newly elected coalition government in Rome. The Italian government is an ...

Harbinger of a New Age
Post Date: 2019-01-30 09:27:25 by Ada
Against the outcries and warnings of the mandarins of the establishment, the President is withdrawing all US troops from Afghanistan. America’s longest war ends in a in a deal that was offered years ago but was rejected by the same dead-enders in the Pentagon who are pouting mightily at the moment. Meanwhile Trump continues to hurl regular fusillades at deadbeat NATO, and, most important of all, he continues the process begun at Singapore – pulling the rug out from under a longtime bastion of the military-industrial complex. His meetings with Kim Jong un are a dire threat to the incredibly lucrative cornucopia of cash, careers, and elite prestige that comes out of that ...

Trump Attacks Queen Ann and Fox News for Telling Him to Build a Wall
Post Date: 2019-01-29 09:33:55 by Ada
He made the comments to the Paywall Street Journal, so we’ll have to get the quote from somewhere else. Washington Post: In a Wall Street Journal interview published Sunday, Trump hit back at Ann Coulter, a conservative author whose threats about the defection of the president’s base were credited with pushing him to his once-uncompromising stance. When he backed down on Friday, she called him a “wimp.” “I hear she’s become very hostile,” Trump told the Journal. “Maybe I didn’t return her phone call or something.” No, bud. I think it’s mainly that you told her you were going to build a wall and then didn’t do it. That is ...

The Kulaks Must Be Liquidated as a Class
Post Date: 2019-01-28 12:39:37 by Dakmar
Elizabeth Warren is not proposing a tax; she’s proposing asset forfeiture. History is very short, if you look at it the right way. The American Revolution seems like it was a very long time ago, but looked at with the right kind of eyes, it was the day before yesterday: The revolution of Washington and Jefferson inspired the French Revolution, which unhappily perverted the classical-liberal principles of the American Founders and created instead an ersatz religion purporting to be a cult of pure reason — le Culte de la Raison — which culminated in fanaticism, terror, and dictatorship. The French Revolution inspired the Russian Revolution, which created its own cult of pure ...

Out With a Bang, Not a Whimper (Part 1 of 2) | Joel Skousen
Post Date: 2019-01-27 11:34:22 by BTP Holdings
Are we headed into a debt-fueled catastrophic financial collapse, or will the markets be unnaturally sustained until a designed geopolitical conflict cripples our military, disrupts our society, and ushers in global government and a sweeping loss of liberty? Political scientist, expert on strategic site selection and defensive architecture, and author of multiple authoritative books on disaster preparedness, Joel Skousen, visits Reluctant Preppers for this first time to give the rationale that leads to his conclusion of which of these bleak futures is more likely. In part 2, Skousen goes further to describe essential elements to consider when seeking a safe location, and low cost / ...

The High School Deplorables
Post Date: 2019-01-23 09:07:53 by Ada
MAGA hats, the March for Life, Covington Catholic—and the mob. Of the most culturally deplorable boxes one can check in progressive America in 2019, the boys of Covington Catholic High School have most of them: white, male, Christian, attendees at the annual March for Life in Washington, and wearers of MAGA hats. What’s not to dislike? So when four minutes of video footage emerged online this weekend showing the students appearing to harass a Native American Vietnam veteran named Nathan Phillips, America’s media and cultural elite leapt to judgment. A short video clip of student Nick Sandmann supposedly “smirking” as Mr. Phillips banged his drum in the ...

Woman Didn’t Know Progress On Toxic Masculinity Would Turn Boyfriend Into Such A Weepy Little Pansy
Post Date: 2019-01-22 15:56:08 by Luke The Spook
Woman Didn’t Know Progress On Toxic Masculinity Would Turn Boyfriend Into Such A Weepy Little Pansy APPLETON, WI—Expressing disbelief at her romantic partner’s dramatic behavioral shift, local woman Emily Kittleson, 30, told reporters Friday that she had not expected her boyfriend’s attempts to recognize and curtail toxic masculinity would eventually turn him into a “weepy little pansy.” “Christ, I know the dope is trying to be conscious of the effects of his words and actions and to be more open and honest with his emotions, but there’s got to be a limit,” said Kittleson of her boyfriend Shane Magnusen, 31, whose efforts to reject toxic ...

United States Justice System To Close All Brick-And-Mortar Locations, Operate Exclusively On Twitter

United States Justice System To Close All Brick-And-Mortar Locations, Operate Exclusively On Twitter WASHINGTON D.C.—In a long-awaited move toward modernity, the United States Justice System is shutting down all brick-and-mortar courthouses and moving exclusively to Twitter. “This is where the country has been headed for years,” said Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter. “Twitter is where real justice happens, and it doesn’t take weeks, months, even years. It can get the job done in minutes.” His comments were met with enthusiastic applause. Dorsey said that administrative members of the court system had been in contact with him after seeing the expediency of justice ...

Academia strikes back to protect its fraudulent disciplines
Post Date: 2019-01-10 20:47:57 by Ada
Peter Boghossian, a philosophy professor at Portland State University, is being threatened with official sanction or firing for the valuable and novel experiment he and two others began in 2017. In what has come to be known as the " grievance studies hoax," Boghossian submitted a number of obvious, ridiculous fake papers to academic journals that focus on gender, race, and sexuality. When seven of their 20 papers were peer reviewed and accepted for publication (four were actually published before the hoax was exposed by the Wall Street Journal), he had proven how corrupt and worthless some academic subjects and journals really are. The human subjects of Boghossian's real ...

Farewell to the Poisoned Dwarf and Four Pizzas
Post Date: 2019-01-03 20:40:58 by Dakmar
The demise of The Weekly Standard was a pleasure, not because I like to see print magazines go down the drain—to the contrary—but because of its parentage, William Kristol and John Podhoretz. These two unpleasant neocons are known as the “Poisoned Dwarf” and “Four Pizzas,” respectively, and rarely have I seen two bigger con men get away with more stuff than this pair. They are smarmy, loquacious, and incompetent except for self-promotion, and were the movers and cheerleaders for the worst foreign-policy decision Uncle Sam has made, with the possible exception of Vietnam. They, of course, have never apologized but insist to this day that going to war to ensure ...

Trump will reverse troop withdrawal from Syria: Analyst
Post Date: 2018-12-21 07:16:01 by Tatarewicz
PressTV... US President Donald Trump might retreat on his decision to pull American troops out of Syria, an American analyst says. Trump said on Thursday that US troops cannot stat in Syria "forever" and he would pull them out of the Middle Eastern country. PressTV-'Do we want to be in Syria forever?' Trump asks US President Donald Trump defends his decision to pull American troops out from Syria. James Petras, a political analyst in New York, told Press TV in an interview on Thursday that there is possibility that the troop withdrawal is not sustainable. He said taking into consideration Trump's history of going back on his moves when he meets opposition from the ...

The Lincoln Option
Post Date: 2018-12-02 21:38:03 by X-15
After two years in office, Donald Trump finds his presidency at a crossroads. His mode of operation as president has been a continuation of his style as candidate. He says a lot of flippant things about the establishment, many of which are true, but the response is mockery or possibly some pearl clutching. Otherwise, from a policy perspective, the Trump era looks like the Jeb Bush era. The donor class got tax cuts and regulatory reform, while the voters have thus far gotten nothing, other than more of the same. He can continue down the same path he has been on, reacting to the machinations of his enemies, like a hyper-active version of Richard Nixon, but that promises he will be a one-term ...

The globalist plan to exterminate humanity begins now: “Useless eaters” must be eliminated, say globalists
Post Date: 2018-11-19 12:31:07 by AllTheKings'HorsesWontDoIt
Far beyond the distractions of political bickering and cultural trends, the big, big picture that’s unfolding across our world right now is a plan to exterminate 90% of the current human population in order to “save” the planet and protect what globalists see as the future of human survival on a cosmic scale. This plan is under way now due to two very important developments: #1) The rise of robotic systems that can replace human labor, eliminating the need for a world of impoverished human workers whose only reason for existence — from the point of view of the globalists — was to be exploited for cheap labor and manipulated votes. If you aren’t yet aware ...

America’s “UnAmerican Government”
Post Date: 2018-11-11 16:35:58 by Ada
“The 1940 Nationality Act Section 401 (e) of the 1940 Nationality Act provides that a U.S. citizen, whether by birth or naturalization, “shall lose his [U.S.] nationality by…voting in a political election in a foreign state.” This law was tested many times. In 1958, for instance, an American citizen named Perez voted in a Mexican election. The case went to the Supreme Court, where the majority opinion held that Perez must lose his American nationality. The court said Congress could provide for expatriation as a reasonable way of preventing embarrassment to the United States in its foreign relations. If Americans were ever polled on it—and they never are—the ...

Should the Women Who Made Knowingly False Statements
Post Date: 2018-11-06 19:53:35 by Ada
In the Kavanaugh Hearing Be Criminally Prosecuted? Grassley is demanding charges in reality which are serious and carry 5 years in prison per count for making false allegations which not just diverted resources causing millions of dollars of expenditures, but they led to an international embarrassment of the nation. Yet this has exposed the raw hatred that also exists in some aspects of the gender war than a portion of people seem to be involved in. Mix in politics, and we end up with a real mess and this entire incident, it NOT prosecuted, will become the new standard and nobody will ever seek any post if there we have lost all sense of civility. There were just far too many people who ...

Social Media, Free Speech, And Censorship pre & Post Pittsburgh.
Post Date: 2018-11-06 17:21:38 by X-15
Facebook, Twitter and many other social media platforms cost nothing to use, so how do these corporations turn a profit? Its no secret that they automatically data-mine and analyze all the information posted by their users, then package and sell this information to other corporations to help target their advertising. But the same automated processes that are exploited by advertisers are also used by these platforms to tilt the ideological playing field in favor of their own leftist so-called social justice agenda. As an example, I have been suspended from Facebook for six out of the past twelve months for posting memes that others report posting with no consequences, indicating that more ...
