"Allahu akbar!" in Merkeland (Germany)... again?

Walt can't be certain on this one, since die Polizei are being characteristically tight-lipped [and ashen-faced? Ed.], but initial reporters out of Lübeck, Germany, suggest that a terror attack in which 12 people were injured may be the work of a fanatcial Islamist. No-one has yet reported hearing cries of "Allahu akbar!" but German media are under instructions not to publish mere details like that, for fear of provoking still more Islamphopbia amongst a people sick, sore and tired or Angela Merkel's Willkommenskultur.

The local paper, Lübecker Nachrichten reports that a suspect attacked passengers with a knife onboard a busy bus, in the Kücknitz district of the northern German city. Inspektor Katzenjammer of the state police said that authorities were still trying to determine the circumstances of the attack. "Nobody was killed," a press release stated. "The perpetrator was overpowered and is now in police custody."

AP quoted Ulla Hingst, a spokesthingy for state prosecutors, as saying that police are investigating a suspicious rucksack. "Nothing can be ruled out, including a terrorist background," she said. The local cops tweeted, "We ask for your understanding that we cannot provide any information about the identity of the suspect at the moment."

No "authorities" -- prosecutors, police, first responders or anyone else -- has dared to whisper words like "asylum-seeker", "refugee", "North African", "Muslim", or "Islamic terrorist". Walt is surely not the only person, though, who remembers that, in December 2016, 12 people were killed in Berlin when a Tunisian with links to Islamist militants ploughed into a crowded Christmas marketplace. Walt predicts that a similar connection will be revealed in this case... but later... and very quietly. Lifetime pct .990.

Understanding Trump, Putin and world politics with the help of "1984"

I'm having trouble figuring this out. President Trump went to Helsinki and had a meeting with President Putin. After the meeting POTUS said (when you add it all up) that, even though American "intelligence" said otherwise, he was taking Mr Putin's word for it that the Russians didn't meddle in the 2016 presidential election. "Why would it be the Russians?", he asked, then "Why wouldn't it be the Russians?" He didn't know at the time -- it was Obama who received the PDBs, eh -- and doesn't know now.

Now the usual gang of gliberals, Democratic socialists, antifa Nazis and media stars are calling the President a traitor -- literally -- and unpatriotic for suggesting that the CIA and "military intelligence" (an oxymoron, for sure) might have been wrong on this one. If you think American "intelligence" never makes a mistake, perhaps you'd be interested in some of this yellowcake I can get for you, cheap! In spite of the ongoing witchhunt in Washington, nobody can say for sure what the Russians did or didn't do in the runup to the election. The thing sure is that what the Russians did (if anything) didn't have much effect (if any) on the result. The Democrats and other "resisters" are still in denial that the American people chose The Donald over Crooked Hillary.

What, I wonder, do the anti-Trumpers think POTUS should have done at the historic meeting. Should he have pulled a Glock out of his pocket and shot the Russki-in-Chief in the face, like Michael Corleone in The Godfather? Of course not. He'd have been recognized!

Now the blaze in the anti-Trumpers hair has become an inferno because President Trump has invited President Putin to come and have a chat at the White House. With confusion still swirling around what the two men discussed behind closed doors in Helsinki, Russian Ambassador Anatoly Antonov said it’s important to "deal with the results" of their first summit before jumping too fast into a new one. But, he said, "Russia is always open to such proposals. We are ready for discussions on this subject."

Which is as it should be. Seems to me we're losing sight of the importance of the meeting itself. When the heads of two of the world's three super-powers sit down to talk, something good may come of it, or not, but, as Churchill supposedly said, "Jaw-jaw is better than war-war." [In fact it was one of Churchill's successors, Harold Macmillan, who put it exactly that way. According to his official biographer, Churchill's words were, "Meeting jaw to jaw is better than war." Ed.]

Those folks -- especially Republicans -- who criticize President Trump for making nice with President Putin should keep in mind that American foreign policy was badly in need of a reset after eight years of Obamian dithering and wimpishness, and POTUS is leading the much-needed change in direction.

This summer alone, he has stood up for America, to the discomfort of its "allies", at the G7 and NATO summits, sat eyeball-to-eyeball with Kim Jong-un (something no-one thought possible) and now in serious talks with the Russian president about Syria, the Ukraine and other matters of vital importance. All that and all POTUS gets is grief. Obama was only a few weeks into his presidensity, had done nothing (and never did) and what did they give him? The Nobel fucking prize!

The present geopolitical situation reminds me of that described by George Orwell in 1984. Writing at the beginning of the Cold War, Orwell predicted that, come the iconic year, the world would be divided into three super-states:
Oceania -- including all of the Americas, southern Africa, Australia and the British Isles, the main location for the novel
Eurasia -- Europe and most of the old Soviet Union, plus a little chunk of the Middle East
Eastasia -- Japan, Korea, China and northern India.


The three states are in a perpetual state of warfare -- sometimes two against one, sometimes all three against each other. These wars are fought in the disputed territories, running from North Africa over the Middle East and southern India to Southeast Asia. Orwell's gift of prescience is spooky, isn't it?

There's not much "super" to Orwell's super-states except their size. All three are totalitarian dictatorships.

Oceania's ideology is Ingsoc -- English Socialism, of the kind now being espoused by "socialist democrats" like Bernie Sanders and the latest political rock star, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Eurasia's state creed is Neo-Bolshevism, not unlike what Russia has today under the Putin régime.
Eastasia's politics and religion are blended into the Obliteration of the Self, something like the Buddhist-inspired fascism you might find (so they say) in today's Myanmar or Thailand.

These ideologies are very similar one to another, but the "proles" -- the common people -- are told the opposite.  "Of course the Russians hate our American values! If you're not against Russia, you must be against America!" Sound familiar?

Orwell suggests that the conflicts between the super-states may not be real at all. It's clear that the media of Oceania are completely one-sided and in the habit of fabricating "facts" -- fake news! A dissident book central to the plot of 1984 suggests the two other powers may actually be a fabrication of the government of Oceania, which would make it the government of the entire world. An alternative theory is that "Airstrip One" (the British Isles) is not an outpost of a greater empire, but the sole territory under the command of Ingsoc, which fabricates eternal global war to keep its people permanently mobilised (check), scrutinized (check) and on rations (and check).

The world as portrayed in 1984 is purely fictional of course. The book was written in 1949. What George Orwell predicted could never happen... could it?

VIDEO: "Hey, mofo! I gots to use da baffroom!"

Around 3 AM on July 15th, Leliqua Clarke, a black "lady" resident in the ghetto that is Brampton ON, felt that she needed to use the washroom. Being out and about (as Canucks say) rather than home in bed, she drove into a nearby Tim Hortons -- Canada's cheaper, better version of Starbucks. Unlike the infamous Starbucks of Philthydelphia, Timmie's doesn't mind if non-patrons avail of their "facilities", provided that the store is open.

Unfortunately for Ms Clarke, this particular outlet, although open 24/7, wisely offers drive-through service only from 10 PM until the sun comes up. What to do? Rather than squatting in the parking lot, as is not unknown in such places, Ms Clarke decided to climb through the drive-through service window! The staff -- a 25-year-old woman, reportedly pregnant, and a 20-year-old man, were taken by surprise. A tussle ensued.



[Who took that video?! Ed.] Never mind! Just pay attention to what happened! You can see Ms Clarke holding the female employee in a headlock while the male employee tries to get her to loosen the grip. Then Ms Clarke throws a number of punches at the female employee. Both employees suffered minor injuries.

Unlike the employees of the Philadelphia Starbucks, the Timmie's staff didn't call the cops. It wasn't until the video went viral on YouTube that the Authorities intervened. The local constabulary tracked down and arrested Ms Clarke, charging her with two counts of assault and one count of break and enter with intent to commit a crime. (Agent 3 says defence lawyers -- doubtless retained at taxpayers' expense through Ontario's legal aid plan -- should demand specifics of the intended crime!) She will be in court this morning for a bail hearing

Without making any snarky comments about race, Tim Hortons issued a statement calling Ms Clarke's behaviour "aggressive" and "completely unacceptable" saying no one should come to work expecting to be treated so harshly. They have no plans, they said, to conduct any Starbucks-style sensitivity training.

Canuck "conservatives" wimp out, pull anti-border jumpers ad

The Canadian brand of conservatism is pretty thin gruel compared with the chunky stuff which got Donald Trump elected. The leader of the so-called Conservative Party of Canada, Andrew Scheer, is a decent guy, good Catholic with several kids, whose baby face, dimples and short-sleeved madras shirts make him look like a small-town insurance salesman. [What is he, actually? Ed.] He never has a bad word to say about anybody -- even "Mr Socks" -- and is in grave danger of becoming a "Joe Who" footnote to Canadian history.

Mr Scheer's high wimp factor is only a reflection of that of his party, which appears not to understand that its function, as Her Majesty's Loyal Opposition, is to be politically incorrect to the degree necessary to counter the exagerrated political correctness of the Trudeau Liberals, which now has the status of political orthodoxy, not to be questioned by anyone, anyone in politics or the (((media))).

The latest PC commandment, handed down by the Somali-born Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship (no, I'm not kidding) is that the dark-complected people who cross the Canadian border other than at a port of entry are not "illegal", even though their actions in jumping across the undefended border are clearly in violation of Canadian law. Moreover, it's not Just In Trudeau's fault that they're coming, in their 1000s, from a safe country (the USA) just because Junior tweeted after the election of DJT that all those "fleeing persecution" are welcome in Canada.

The Conservatives have argued (although not very forcefully) that Mr Socks' Tweet is exactly the reason that a large contingent of Mounties has been deployed near St-Bernard-de-Lacolle QC to carry the bags of the "asylum seekers" to the bus which will take them to the welfare offices of Montréal and (they hope) Toronto. See "Canuck Conservatives demand Liberals stop border jumpers", WWW 24/4/18.

Since speaking in Parliament and on the Sunday morning snorefests doesn't seem to be doing any good, the Tories decided to publish an ad calling attention to the problem which the Liberals deny is a problem, let alone a "crisis". So here's what they put up on their Twitter feed yesterday.


In a display of cowardice in the face of the PC police unusual even for Canadians, the Conservatives pulled the ad, even before the day was done. Tory spokesthingy Cory Hann told the CBC (of course!) that the ad was axed because the situation at the border is "not about any one group of people." LMAO. Mr Hann said the image, which shows an actual person of the coloured persuasion illegally crossing over the Canadian border was originally used by a number of media outlets with stories about the surge in asylum seekers. But, he added, the full photo shows the man with a group of people, so they shouldn't have singled out this one guy who happens to be, errr, black.

Walt's challenge to Cory Hann: Search through all the images of illegal border crossers, including the one I used in my post of April 24th, and show me one (1) of the illegals who is not a vizmin. Even a hoser knows what's going on. Why are the Conservatives afraid to depict the truth? Trying to work both sides of the street, perhaps?

VIDEO: Canuck government hides failure of Syrian "refugees" to adapt

One of the grandiose, virtue-signalling promises Justin "Mr Socks" Trudeau made on his way to becoming Prime Minister of Canada was that, by the end of 2015, he (meaning the Canadian taxpayer) would welcome ­25,000 "refugees" from the Muslim civil war in Syria. Coming as it did only days after a picture of the corpse of a little kid washed up on the shores of Greece drew tears from right-thinking people all over the world, that promise was a big factor in getting the Gliberals elected.

And so it came to pass that planeloads of "refugees" started arriving in Toronto just in time for Christmas. Mr Socks was prominent in almost daily photo ops with smiling Syrian refugees, such as doctors and, errr, well, never mind. They're all great people, Just In assured a gullible nation, and will make a great contribution to Canada -- so much so that another 25,000 would be welcomed in 2016! "Diversity is our strength" became the Liberal catch-phrase, repeated by Mr T and all his minions day after day, ad nauseam.

Canada's Auditor-General, Michael Ferguson, suggested that the government keep track of the 25,000 or 50,000 refugees they dumped into the middle of the Canadian winter, to see how they were adjusting to life in the Great No-longer-white North. Were the mostly Arabic-speaking refugees learning English or French? Were they working (ha!), going to school, or just sitting in their government-provided houses, receiving social assistance?

It would be nice for Canadian taxpayers to know those things, but a cone of silence has been dropped by the Ministry of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship -- the name says it all! -- over the fate of the "refugees". After more than two weeks of inquiries by Postmedia, a government flak-catcher acknowledged that the ministry has not produced any report in almost two years on the degree to which the "refugees" have been able to integrate into Canadian society.

In this video (running time 4:10), the Vancouver Sun's Douglas Todd tells of his efforts to get the truth (or any information at all) from the Trudeau Gliberals. Check it out.

"Baby Trump" blimp headed for New Jersey?

Interesting item on the mojo wire today. Seems the blimp portraying President Trump as a snarling baby that flew over London last week (see "Non-Muslim baby spotted in London", WWW 15/7/18) could soon be on its way to the clear blue skies of the Garden State, now that anti-Trump activists have raised enough money to bring it to the Excited States.

The long-haired, pimply-faced fanatics claim to have raised more than $8000 on GoFundMe.com. That's almost double the amount they said they needed to get the helium balloon to Bedminster NJ, home of the Trump National Golf Club which President Trump (I say that lest they forget) visits regularly. Organizer Didier Jiminez-Castro (no relation?) said he hoped the balloon would spur enthusiasm for Democratic candidates in November’s mid-term elections.

"Baby Trump will give that punch, that energy that we need for the midterms," said Senor Jiminez Castro. "It’s going to get people out of the house." But not, Walt thinks, out of the country.

Sadly for the anti-Trumpers, the money will be wasted, since Mr Trump will probably not see the blimp. The Federal Aviation Administration places flight restrictions on airspace over Bedminster whenever he visits!
