STEPHEN CARTER: The Islamic State’s Centuries-Old Strategy.
What the debate is lacking is a sense of history. And the historical antecedents do supply an early analogy to Islamic State — a warrior people who came out of nowhere, defeated mightier forces in battle, accumulated wealth and, in their bloody ferocity, terrified every civilization with which they came into contact.

A lively discussion ensued.   Lot of back and forth comment on the true level of the threat posed by ISIS, and this;

DaveC
Civilization is based upon lifelong monogamous marriage. Once that’s abolished, attractive women indulge their hypergamous instincts by lavishing attention on the most attractive 20% of men, telling the other 80% to go screw themselves. This is not without precedent; it’s happened to every civilization that achieved two or three generations of physical and nutritional security.

Along comes a horde of barbarians, saying “join us, and when we win, you’ll get a 12-year-old virgin bride to do with as you please”, a big chunk of that 80% switches sides, and the feminist utopia disappears in an orgy of rape and slaughter.

My comment.

“Once that’s abolished, attractive women indulge their hypergamous instincts by lavishing attention on the most attractive 20% of men, telling the other 80% to go screw themselves.”

Add to that. It’s an appeal not limited only to the areas only under the shadow of the barbarians, hence the inflow of western born adherents holding western passports. In fact it’s the areas most exposed to the “Feminist Utopia” that the supposedly westernized Muslims are coming from. They can have them.

In a match of the Puritan Roundheads against the Turkish Sipahi, I’d bet on the Roundheads. But neither would show much mercy towards the,

club. More’s the pity.

Or these dolly’s,  who only perform their nudist rebellion behind the shield of scores of local police, their countries intelligence services, the armed might of NATO and the millions of American Armed Forces around the world.

That’s an eroding shield, at best.

Another problem we aren’t prepared for.

Winston Churchill:  “There is nothing so exhilarating then to shot at…and missed”.

Scientists say worst of strong solar storm will likely miss Earth

anr_storms_011513.jpg

A strong solar flare is blasting its way to Earth, but the worst of its power looks like it will barely skim above the planet and not cause many problems.

It has been several years since Earth has had a solar storm of this size coming from sunspots smack in the middle of the sun, said Tom Berger, director of the Space Weather Prediction Center in Boulder, Colorado. The flare on the sun barely hits the “extreme” on forecasters’ scale, but with its worst effects missing Earth it is only looking “potentially strong” at most when it arrives at Earth as a solar storm, he said.

See you Monday,  if all technic civilization on Earth isn’t wiped out.

Guest, Ethel: Black Female Journalist on Obamas

BEST SUMMATION OF BARACK AND MICHELLE OBAMA EVER!

(Mychal Massie is a respected writer and talk show host in Los Angeles.)

The other evening on my twitter, a person asked me why I didn’t like the Obama’s. Specifically I was asked: “I have to ask, why do you hate the Obama’s? It seems personal, not policy related. You even dissed (disrespect) their Christmas family picture.”

The truth is I do not like the Obamas, what they represent, their ideology, and I certainly do not like his policies and legislation. I’ve made no secret of my contempt for the Obamas. As I responded to the person who asked me the aforementioned question, I don’t like them because they are committed to the fundamental change of my/our country into what can only be regarded as a Communist state.

I don’t hate them per definition, but I condemn them because they are the worst kind of racialists, they are elitist Leninists with contempt for traditional America. They display disrespect for the sanctity of the office he holds, and for those who are willing to admit same, Michelle Obama’s raw contempt for white America is transpicuous.

I don’t like them because they comport themselves as emperor and empress. I expect, no I demand respect, for the Office of President, and a love of our country and her citizens, from the leader entrusted with the governance of same. President and Mrs. Reagan displayed an unparalleled love for the country and her people. The Reagan’s made Americans feel good about themselves and about what we could accomplish.

His arrogance by appointing 32 leftist czars and constantly bypassing congress is impeachable. Eric Holder is probably the MOST incompetent and arrogant DOJ head to ever hold the job. Could you envision President Reagan instructing his Justice Department to act like jack-booted thugs?

Presidents are politicians and all politicians are known and pretty much expected to manipulate the truth, if not outright lie, but even using that low standard, the Obama’s have taken lies,dishonesty,deceit,mendacity, subterfuge and obfuscation to new depths.They are verbally abusive to the citizenry, and they display an animus for civility.

I do not like them, because they both display bigotry overtly, as in the case of Harvard Professor Louis Gates, when he accused the Cambridge Police of acting stupidly, and her code speak pursuant to now being able to be proud of America. I view that statement and that Mind set as an insult to those who died to provide a country where a Kenyan, his illegal alien relatives, and his alleged progeny, could come and not only live freely, but rise to the highest, most powerful, position in the world.

Michelle Obama is free to hate and disparage whites because Americans of every description paid with their blood to ensure her right to do that. I have a saying, that “the only reason a person hides things, is because they have something to hide.” No president in history has spent over a million dollars to keep his records and his past sealed.
And what the two of them have shared has been proven to be lies. He lied about when and how they met, he lied about his mother’s death and problems with insurance, Michelle lied to a crowd pursuant to nearly $500,000 bank stocks they inherited from his family. He has lied about his father’s military service, about the civil rights movement, ad nausea. He lied to the world about the Supreme Court in a State of the Union address.

He berated and publicly insulted a sitting Congressman. He has surrounded himself with the most rabidly, radical, socialist academicians today. He opposed rulings that protected women and children that even Planned Parenthood did not seek to support. He is openly hostile to business and aggressively hostile to Israel.

His wife treats being the First Lady as her personal American Express Black Card (arguably the most prestigious credit card in the world). I condemn them because, as people are suffering, losing their homes, their jobs, their retirements, he and his family are arrogantly showing off their life of entitlement – as he goes about creating and fomenting class warfare.

I don’t like them, and I neither apologize nor retreat from my public condemnation of them and of his policies. We should condemn them for the disrespect they show our people, for his willful and unconstitutional actions pursuant to obeying the Constitutional parameters he is bound by, and his willful disregard for Congressional authority.
Dislike for them has nothing to do with the color of their skin; it has everything to do with their behavior, attitudes,and policies. And I have open scorn for their constantly playing the race card.

I could go on, but let me conclude with this. I condemn in the strongest possible terms the media for refusing to investigate them, as they did President Bush and President Clinton, and for refusing to label them for what they truly are. There is no scenario known to man, whereby a white president and his wife could ignore laws, flaunt their position, and lord over the people, as these two are permitted out of fear for their color.

As I wrote in a syndicated column titled, “Nero In The White House” – “Never in my life, inside or outside of politics, have I witnessed such dishonesty in a political leader.

He is the most mendacious political figure I have ever witnessed. Even by the low standards of his presidential predecessors, his narcissistic,contumacious arrogance is unequaled. Using Obama as the bar, Nero would have to be elevated to sainthood.

Many in America wanted to be proud when the first person of color was elected president, but instead, they have been witness to a congenital liar, a woman who has been ashamed of America her entire life, failed policies, intimidation, and a commonality hitherto not witnessed in political leaders. He and his wife view their life at our expense as an entitlement – while America’s people go homeless, hungry and unemployed.

George Bush would have done this…But

Ebola virus is spreading ‘exponentially’ in Liberia, health chiefs warn, as British and American troops head to Africa to help set up treatment centres

Losing American troops to disease or African Islamic Militants is the same as to IED’s in Afghanistan.  Dead is Dead.  It isn’t my call whither or not this is an appropriate use of American troops.  If it was my decision I think I’d ask for volunteers, not just give an order.  Our men make a commitment to risk death or injury to defend the USA, at times US troops have taken the field in the US to help our own people during natural disasters.  Sending them to any African country because that country is FUBAR?   NFW.

But if George W. Bush had done it?

What about, no, what happened to the Billions of Dollars, Marks, and Pounds sent to that region expressly for the purpose of creating the medical infrastructure so desperately needed today?   How about this?  For every UK or US trooper sent into harms way we get to hang one corrupt, venal, African politician or bureaucrat?  Yeah, bring lots and lots of rope.

Reblog from Theo Spark: Why can’t any American Pol do this?

Swiss Member of Parliament Oskar Freysinger Has Had Enough………………

Oskar Freysinger, a member of the Swiss Parliament gave a passionate speech filled with truth that no politician in Washington, DC has yet to give from the floor of Congress. He calls out Islam for what it is: A dogma that is gnawing away at the pillars of our system of laws, wherever it is granted the space to do so. Video courtesy of Walid Shoebat.

 

Listening to a impassioned speech in German might bring back memories of Adolf, except for the pony-tail.

Public Transport straight to …

The Unbearable Heaviness of Light Rail & Public Transport

Over at American Digest , Vanderleun opened up (in-between packing for his move) on the 21st Century anachronistic hold-over from the twentieth century nineteenth century/mid-twentieth century marvel,  Public Transportation.  Back before the automobile was developed and dropped to a price that most everyone could afford, then public transportation was a wonderful thing. Almost a century later after the cities and their suburbs were adapted to be served by and to service the needs of the internal combustion engine the universal role occupied by trains and trolleys is reduced.

I actually tried Seattle’s much touted new light rail system a few weeks ago as an alternate method of getting to Seafair. I was, to say the least, underwhelmed with this multi-billion dollar boondoggle. A toy for rich white people to look at lovingly and feel good about as they drive by it in their large cars.

The system in Seattle, since the political core seems to hate cars, is to link the rail to the bus lines. But the bus lines, of course, are already too skeletal to really work. To really make the new rail system utterly inefficient, the system has no feeder parking lots for the main stations. You are, it seems, supposed to take the bus to the train even if there is no bus line near you. The entire effort puts the lie to the old saw that “You can’t gold plate a turd.” In Seattle it would seem, you can. And you can ever sugar coat it enough that many people will say, ‘Mmmm, good!”

But the transit systems in many older, east coast cities (like Boston) have their own perils, especially when Unions and the Democrat driven urban political correctness lays it’s heavy hand on it.  On the older systems that worked but now hag ridden; held immobile in time, a heavy weight of new mandates and nightmarish dreams occupied by strange creatures not meant to by found in nature…as I related in my comment to Gerald’s article;

So in the last few years of my old career I was responsible for a large phone system and Call Center in Boston. After years of my employers chipping away at my perks and benefits, I had no company vehicle or payment for parking or payment for mileage to drive into town.
To save money I took Boston’s MBTA subway. After years of 50-75% rate bumps the crumbling, dirty and crime-ridden parking garage located in the suburbs had gone from 50 cents to $7. So I biked to the station, or walked to the bus stop when the roads were covered in snow and ice.
I was usually on the train by 5:30am but got to return by 3pm. The early morning train was usually half full of people trying to stay just enough awake that they could be ready for their stop. One morning, O dark thirty, the train is rocking along faster than usual I thought. But then the lights of a underground station flashed by, Andrew Station. A key bus terminal and never skipped even by expresses. I realized that I hadn’t heard any announcements that this was an express but wasn’t unusual, so many of the cars on the line didn’t have working speakers anymore. I hoped that the train wasn’t going to skip South Station or I’d end up with a long walk and be late. Then I noticed that we weren’t slowing for Broadway Station which should be coming up. Seconds later the lights of the station were flashing through the trains grimy windows.
At that point the subway car began to brake, braking harder than any subway car I’d ever been in had ever braked. The train come to a stop with (as far as I could tell) the last car of the train still in the lighted station. My car was past the station and in the dark, the lights in the car showing the reflection of the startled passengers, all now fully awake. We sat there for several minutes. The rasping sound of voices coming from some metal grid speaker up “forward” could be heard. After a while there was a short attempt to back up the train to the station, then more rasping voices and after another brief pause the train started going forward and we continued on the next station in the line.
As I sat there and started putting it all together I came to the conclusion that the most plausible scenario for what had just happened was that the driver of the train had just fallen asleep and was finally awoken by the lights of the station he was passing. Awoke and instinctively hit the brakes, hard. With the early morning separation of the trains, after bypassing two stations he would probably have caught up with the train ahead by South Station. At South Station with it’s bus, Amtrak and Silver Line connections the trains stayed a little longer and would probably have been stationary when our bolt from the dark arrived.

The head of security at the downtown building where I worked was retired from the MBTA and later that morning I told him the story for his “take” on the event. He told me that many years ago the drivers of the Subway Trains were only allowed to touch the controls of these machines until after years of working at lower jobs in the system; starters at the bus terminals, bus drivers, trolly conductors then trolly drivers and finally (min. of ten years later) subway train engineers. But at the end of his career he had seen that change, “Community Activists” had sued that this was keeping minorities out of the drivers seat (so to speak) and now within a year a new hire could be driving. I never saw the driver, I don’t know. But I wasn’t totally unhappy when I got laid off and thereby got out of there alive.

Note: A few months later a “T” operator drove a underground trolly into the rear of another train. While sex-texting.  That driver was mid-twenties and a transgender, transsexual new hire, eighteen months on the job. “O what brave new world, that has such creatures in it!”
