First The Smiths with There is a light that never goes out. From their third album The Queen is dead (1986).

I really liked The Smiths' music. Make that 'like'. Guess I wasn't alone here in Belgium in their heyday. I always mused however how they were perceived in the UK itself. 'Cause with us non-native English speakers, it's the music first that we notice, the lyrics only afterwards. Whereas with Anglosaxons it's prolly the other way round, and The Smiths' lyrics, and especially Morrisey's voice, seem to be a like it or hate it thing. I vividly recall a conversation in autumn 87 in Paris between me and my longtime pal Michaël B. and two English girls whom we had met in, of all places, Notre Dame Cathedral. Upon telling them I liked The Smiths they both expressed instant disgust!

Then Oasis with Whatever. A 1994 single.

Never had much use for the arrogant Gallagher brothers, but they did make some good music.




I wrote "surpassing" because that's only if you adjust for purchasing power in both countries, using the so-called PPP metric (Purchasing Power Parity). In that case, according to the IMF, China will have a PPP-relative GDP of 17.632 Trillion dollars, whereas the US's will be 17.416 trillion. Not adjusted for PPP, there's still a big chasm between the two countries, as all people with a healthy, no-nonsense gut feeling about economy will suspect. But still, the evolution is undeniable...

... as well as unavoidable, since China's economy is becoming more free market, more capitalistic by the day, whereas the US economy is becoming ever more regulatory, more socialistic.

The goon in the WH promised change, and Americans are getting change indeed.

We're talking about a woman here, no less. Or at least a creature that came on this world equipped as such. Since that fateful day, she's morphed into this:

So what's this about? I'll try to keep it succinct and to the point.

Three years ago, after the longest government formation in Belgium ever - probably in the entire world - two young supposedly centrist and/or center-right assholes, Wouter Beke from the "Christian" "Democrats" and Alexander De Croo, from the "Flemish" "Liberals", were instrumental in installing Elio Di Rupo, the Parti Socialiste's bigshot, on the seat of Belgian Prime Minister. This to the detriment of the N-VA and its leader Bart De Wever, supposedly also center-right, but regarded by our moral superiors as a Vlaams Belang Lite variant. Which it is not, but more about that later.

The tenure of Mr Di Rupo and his socialist-infested government predictably turned out to be an unmitigated disaster, with a.o. catastrophic job losses.

So the May 2014 elections resulted in a Big Win for the N-VA.

De Wever, a skilled strategist, pulled the strings and managed to fabricate an N-VA - Open VLD - MR coalition. Open VLD are the "Flemish" "Liberals", MR the Walloon "Liberals".

In Belgium, no other party than the Vlaams Belang is truly rightwing, but the PC crowd and their lackeys in the media and the educational system have done a good job at convincing the Great Unwashed that this government, this NVA_OpenVLD_MR coalition, is rightwing.

Even so, we have been having a soi-disant center-right government for the last couple of months, entirely WITHOUT SOCIALISTS. No Flemish socialists, no Walloon socialists. And this is a fairly unique situation in Belgium.

The will of the people you know. It's something called 'democracy'.

But BOY, them socialists DON'T LIKE IT.

So they've been organizing strikes for three weeks now. First at the provincial level, and last Monday nationwide.

It has become clear they've got actually rather little leverage in the private sector.

But UNFORTUNATELY, they do have serious leverage in public transport, in the ports, in the educational system.

Their efforts to paralyze the country should not be seen as a serious attempt to negotiate with the government about the austerity measures, but as a childish act of vengeance for not being part of the government.

Yes, basically that's what they are most angry about. Sad losers that they are, the leftists are NOT AMUSED at having been shoved aside in the most recent election.

That's why everybody has to feel it.

That's why on quite a lot of industrial estates, they have been setting up roadblocks at the entrances, not manned with people who actually worked there, but by Union goons.

That's why, while for themselves they claim the right to go on strike - which is okay for me - THEY DENY OTHERS THE RIGHT TO WORK.

And that's why a Union Troll like Madame Raymonde Le Lepvrier, secretary of a Namur chapter of the socialist union SETCa, part of the larger FGTB organisation, last Monday stormed in a fashion mall and started throwing expensive clothing around in the presence of the shop owner and her personnel, who had been willing to show up.

And that's why "Madame" Le Lepvrier threatened the shopkeeper that if she did not close the shop, she would turn the entire business in a ruin.

Her idea being that if THEY, the Socialists, decide not to work (which is an oxymoron since not working is basically their modus operandi under all circumstances), THEN NOBODY WILL WORK.

Tolerant Socialism at its finest!

If you want to sign a petition to have this CUNT removed from her plush "job" as Regional Union secretary, feel free to join Outlaw Mike.

All of this may seem small beer to the terrible turmoil everywhere in the world - and it is - but all the same, it's the same destructive force that is to blame for a large part, perhaps the largest part, of the world's ills that is on display here - Socialism. The "philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, with as its inherent virtue the equal sharing of misery."

A smack in your face video by Bill Whittle that teaches us a thing or two about how leftists are prepared to lie, cheat, and ruin normal citizens' lives in order to further their 'progressive' agenda.

.... and one of those things is indeed the Tawana Bradley Case, which was a hoax set up in 1987 by this at the time 15-year old African-American girl who, in order to escape punishment from her mother and stepfather, faked a rape at the hands of six white males, one of them a police officer, of which she had supposedly been a victim.

Sure, what catches your eyes immediately is that already back then, this hideous creature of an Al Sharpton was at the forefront of efforts to turn this into a nationwide hatefest.

But apart from that wholly expected fact, take Tawana Bradley herself.

A closer look at her background and surroundings reveals how utterly familiar the story of her life sounds for those aware of the massive problem that is the Destruction of the Black Family. Even at a younger age (than 15) she had been spending 'nights with boys'. She 'ran away from home sometimes'. She had been arrested for shoplifting. She was beaten not only by her mother, Glenda, but also by her stepfather, notice that, her STEPfather, a Ralph King (one would start to wonder if there are any normal black households left in the United States). That stepfather had a violent past which included stabbing his first wife 14 (fourteen) times, and later shooting and killing her. At one point he was also overheard talking about his stepdaughter 'in a sexualised manner'. To top it all off, earlier on the day Tawana Bradley went missing, she had skipped school to visit her boyfriend, Todd Buxton. This character was at the time serving a six-month jail sentence! And so on, and so on, and so on.

Is it any wonder that young black people remain stuck in the gutter when they have to grow up in such hellish surroundings?

But do we get to know all this? Of course not! It's all whitey's fault!!!

While Bill Whittle makes a convincing case for the New Barbarians, Mark Steyn does a similar exercise, partly using the same evidence, for what I would call the New Victimhood:

"...If you're not fortunate enough to have a great-great-great-grandmother who's listed as Cherokee in the online transcription of an 1894 marriage application, what do you do? Lena Dunham is an upper-middle-class child of white privilege who's had a charmed life, but she's a victim, too. According to her new memoir, she was raped by "Barry", the token conservative at Oberlin. The real-life Barry the Conservative denies raping her, and Random House has been forced to issue a statement "regretting the confusion" and to cover his legal bills, which he'd been paying for by "crowd-funding". The publisher couldn't resist a parting sneer:

* We are offering to pay the fees Mr. Minc has billed his client to date. Our offer will allow Mr. Minc and his client to donate all of the crowd-funding raised to not-for-profit organizations assisting survivors of rape and sexual assault.

Because even if Barry the Conservative never raped Lena Dunham, odds are he's raped someone else, right? As Ann Coulter put it:

How about donating it to organizations that assist survivors of false rape accusations?

Rather than an epidemic of campus rape, there seems to be some sort of psychological inversion of "white flight", in which untold numbers feel the need to flee their bland middle-class suburbs and pitch up in edgier ghettos. You'll have noticed the recent uptick in news of the transgendered - indeed, Sabrina Rubin Erdely, author of the now discredited University of Virginia gang-rape story, was previously reporting on the epidemic of trans rape (Ms Erdely appears to be the Rape Correspondent of Rolling Stone). I note there are some three times as many male-to-female transgenders as there are female-to-male. So all that "gender fluidity" is a vast net transfer from the male brutalizer sector to the female victim sector. At some point it would seem likely to become a flood. After all, it's not so difficult to imagine, a fake gang-rape story or three down the line, elite universities requiring gender reassignment as a condition of continued male admission. In some sense, the swollen ranks of the transgendered seem to have intuited that the jig is up for guys. Might as well check out of the guy business entirely. I'm thinking of pitching Marvel Comics a new superhero group featuring a transwoman, an ambigender, a pangender, an intergender, a bigender and a 2-spirited called Ex-Men.

We are all ex-men now. The sadly misnamed Cavalier Daily of Charlottesville has a highly non-cavalier story about how "Jackie", the "victim" of the University of Virginia "gang" "rape", is owed a debt of gratitude for "pulling back the curtain on rape":

* Jackie, a University student, told Rolling Stone magazine seven men — one of whom she worked with as a lifeguard at the Aquatic and Fitness Center — raped her at a Phi Kappa Psi fraternity party on September 28, 2012.

The fraternity has since disputed Jackie's story, claiming there was no party on that particular date and that no Phi Kappa Psi brother worked at the Aquatic and Fitness Center at that time. The conflicting accounts have stirred controversy on Grounds and in the national media.

"I felt people were fixating on the details and quality of Rolling Stone reporting, and the fact is, whatever happened, something happened to Jackie," Mirza said. "And even if she made up the story, things like this do happen, and there are sexual assaults that don't get reported, so I meant to bring the focus back to Jackie. Whatever comes of this, we're still behind her and we still think she did something brave by coming forward."

"Even if she made up the story", she "pulled back the curtain on rape". And even if there was no rape going on behind the curtain she raised awareness of how rape culture is so prevalent that women are being traumatized into making up stories that they've been gang-raped by seven Phi Kappa Psi men even when they haven't been. The blogger Oliver Willis thinks it's "super dangerous" that the right is seizing on the implosion of Rolling Stone's story to insist that "all rape allegations can be ignored". But isn't it the left that's trivializing real rape by according fake rape the same protected status? After all, if Jackie is incredibly "brave" for "coming forward" to "pull back the curtain" on something that never happened, if "gang rape" no longer requires either rape or a gang, if it is not necessary to have actually been attacked, brutalized and sexually violated in order to be a rape victim, then what's the big deal if one has been?

My old Spectator comrade Theodore Dalrymple once observed:

Political correctness is communist propaganda writ small. In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, nor to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is to co-operate with evil, and in some small way to become evil oneself. One's standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.

The less it corresponds to reality the better - if the purpose is to humiliate, and force you to acquiesce in the lies. As Virginia's Professor James W Ceaser wrote:

Anyone who expressed reserve about the article or who dared to apply the adjective "alleged" to the acts described faced the charge of being indifferent to sexual violence and rape. The penalty was to be written out of the community. Best, one observer cautioned, not to poke the beast... The president of the university, Teresa Sullivan, made clear where the initiative lay: "I want you to know that I have heard you, and that your words have enkindled this message."

What she and they are, in fact, enkindling is reality: They are setting fire to truth, and justice, and civilization. There are plenty of real rape victims out there - the girls kidnapped by Boko Haram, the sex slaves of ISIS, the children of Rotherham - but they're useless to the lynch mob in advancing its goals and so nothing can "enkindle" their stories. But don't worry, the next pseudo-victim will be along any moment:

Then flash'd the living Lightnings from her Eyes,
And Screams of Horror rend th' affrighted Skies.
Not louder Shrieks to pitying Heav'n are cast,
When Husbands, or when Lapdogs breathe their last.

Ah, Lena Dunham! Last week I wrote about how this leftist cunt had overnight become De Standaard's new progressive heroine! Well, it appears De Standaard is a l'il backtracking! Suddenly Lena the Edgy Girl, 'loved by everyone in Antwerp', ain't that edgy anymore, and prolly a few of the 600,000 or so Antwerpians have gone AWOL when it comes to loving her. Check out their 'story':

 photo ds_lena_dunham_aanpassing_zpsebddceac.jpg



Lena Dunham's debut keeps causing mayhem. A paragraph in 'Not that kind of girl', in which she's writing about indecent sexual behaviour of a co-student, caused trouble for a person of the same name. This error is being redacted in future prints, published Random House communicated to the American website The Wrap..."

My oh my, what polished bullshit! 'Indecent sexual behaviour of a co-student'. The Belgian peasants obviously should remain unaware that Miz Dunham specifically mentioned a 'mustachioed Republican by the name of Barry', the 'resident Conservative at Oberlin'. In other words, it was a deliberate attempt to discredit rightwingers. Now, you can AB-SO-LU-TE-LY be sure that De Standaard's editors know this. They know that the person Lena Dunham winked at was a rightwinger. But that's a crucial fact they omit. Oh, it was just a 'person of the same name'. That said person, 'Barry One', a family man with kids, risked grave personal and professional damage because of Dunham's false accusations - don't matter. Doesn't matter to De Standaard. Their message has been delivered. Next fake story that confirms Rightwingers are eeeeeeeevil, racist, nasty people if you please.

Whittle with the New Barbarism, Steyn with the New Professional Victimhood, that cunt Lena Dunham, where was I?

Oh yes! Leftism is a Mental Disease.


PS: memo to De Standaard 'journalists': YOU SUCK.

Japan with Gentlemen take polaroids. From the 1980 album of the same name.

There's a couple of great numbers on Gone to Earth I last heard in about 86 or 87 or so but don't have the patience to listen to it all to find 'em.

Donovan with Hurdy Gurdy Man. It's 1968.

Britain's answer to Bob Dylan.




I can't express my disgust and utter disappointment over the behaviour of John Boehner and Mitch McConnell and in fact, the entire GOP top brass bar a few braves, any better than John Hawkins over at Townhall:


"...While it would certainly be cathartic to flog the GOP for the lousy omnibus bill House Republicans just passed, it seems more productive to tackle a bigger issue. After a historic, yet unearned (Obama was the real GOP MVP) election victory, isn’t it time for the Republican leadership to try to heal the rift with the base that’s tearing the party apart?

Do Republican leaders REALLY want to spend the next two years of a presidential election cycle getting trashed the way they are right now by activists, Tea Party leaders and radio talk show hosts? Anyone who thinks the base is going to sit down and shut up or that the GOP can thrive over the long-term with this kind of intra-party feuding going on is kidding himself.

So realistically, here’s what the Republican Party leaders need to do to help get everyone back on the same page.

1) They should never, ever, under any circumstances trash their base again. That means if the words "Tea Party, "Senate Conservatives Fund," "Mark Levin," “Rush Limbaugh,” “Club for Growth,” “Heritage Action,” etc., etc., come out of their mouths, then they better be saying something nice at best or neutral at worst. Additionally, staffers who mouth off about the base should be unceremoniously fired. At first, Republican politicians shouldn’t expect to have that favor to be returned, but if you’re a politician who wants unconditional love, go buy a dog.

2) The GOP has to keep its promises -- and quite frankly, more than a few Republicans seem to have a pre-YouTube era mentality about that. They think they can say anything they want on the campaign trail and then do something completely different in the office without people being any the wiser. For example, after the NRSC backed Charlie Crist over Marco Rubio, I fought it tooth-and-nail over that decision. After he won, Marco Rubio was one of my favorite politicians, but the moment he lied to us by breaking his campaign pledge to fight amnesty, he was dead to me. I will NEVER forgive Rubio for his dishonorable behavior, no matter what he does. Don’t lie through your teeth to people who took you at your word and then expect us to be stupid enough to trust you again.


4A) A few years back, Republicans in leadership did reach out a bit and while it may have helped a little, it ultimately wasn’t very effective because they looked at it as a way to try to sell what they were doing instead of having a conversation about shared goals. A lot of people, myself included, suspect the reason this isn't done is because we don't have the same aims on a lot of major legislation any more. I don't think the GOP leaders have any intention of seriously trying to stop Obama’s executive amnesty. I don't believe they're committed to the repeal of Obamacare. I was even forced to agree with NANCY PELOSI and ELIZABETH WARREN (vomit) about the GOP’s omnibus bill decision to make it easier for big banks to gamble with derivatives and the sleazy campaign finance reform that was designed to undercut activist groups. Would the GOP leadership really want to explain something like that beforehand? Ultimately, it wouldn’t be that hard to get grassroots leaders to line up behind smart strategies to achieve conservative policy goals, but it’s an open question whether the GOP’s leadership believes in the Republican Party’s own platform enough to fight for it anymore.

5) Speaking of fights, the GOP leaders need to prove they're willing to fight and WIN on something that really matters to conservatives. At this point, the expectation of the Democrats, the mainstream media and even the GOP base is that the Republican Party is going to cave in every time. At some point, Republicans have to prove they can go head-to-head with the Democrats and win on something that matters. Of course, congressional aides could probably name 10 things that people don't care about that much where they’d claim to have "fought and won," but that’s like a football team that’s behind 70-0 complaining it isn’t being given enough credit for all the 1st downs it’s gotten in the game.

6) People feel so burned by Boehner and McConnell that it would take AN INCREDIBLE amount of work for them to ever be trusted again. If someone like Jeb Hensarling took over in the House or John Thune took over in the Senate, he’d immediately get a much longer leash from the base because he’d be given the benefit of the doubt while people evaluated his performance. On the other hand, when it comes to Boehner and McConnell, symbolic gestures aren't going to cut it because we’re at a Cold War level of trust. It doesn’t matter how much Castro tells you he loves democracy and freedom; you’ll believe it AFTER Cuba has a free election.

Last but not least, there's toxic residue in this area that goes all the way back to the end of Bush’s first term that has never been addressed by the GOP leadership in an effective manner. There are a lot of conservatives who feel like they've been SCREAMING at the GOP for a decade and haven't been respected or heard. As long as the GOP leadership insists on maintaining a system where the only way conservative activists can make an impact is by raining hell down on the GOP leaders, they better keep a lot of ice water handy because that’s exactly what they’re going to continue to get.

Nuff said.

Or wait.

No, not nearly enough.

This isn't revisionist.

It is the truth.

The important lesson to be learned is: never trust a leftist.

It was hardcore leftists, the North Vietnamese communists, who violated the Paris Peace Accords.

It was 'softcore' leftists, the Democrats, who cut off funding for the South Vietnamese government.

Even so, South Korea might have been able to resist its evil northern brother. But in contrast to the US's unilateral retreat once the Dems controlled Congress, North Vietnam's powerful communist allies, the USSR and China, kept pouring troops, logistical support and all kinds of military hardware inside North Vietnam.

The result was the collapse of South Vietnam, the Boat People, hundreds of thousands in re-education camps, a decade of American efforts and terrible bloodletting for nothing ... and the installment of a communist dictatorship yielding power from Hanoi to Saigon... a dictatorship that exists to this day.

Thanks but no thanks, Demonrats.

Why this post now?

Simple. We risk seeing history repeated. Iraq's government is corrupt and in the long term it may turn out that islam is truly and really a system humanity must either wipe out or starve to death if it is to be released from its burden. As long as there is no definitive proof of that, Iraq must be supported and given a chance to serve as a breeding ground, a dreadfully barren one, admitted, for democracy and for transformation of islam into at least something harmless to the other belief systems and societal models with which it shares this world.

This is a process which may indeed take hundreds of years. You can't undo 1,400 years of wrongheadedness in a mere couple of decades.

So we must keep supporting Iraq. Just as the US should have kept supporting South Vietnam (which was itself far from an ideal democracy, but still very preferable to its northern sibling).

This post also serves as a reminder that Democrats don't give a jolt about the lives of American soldiers. They were willing to reduce the sacrifice of 50,000 plus American troops and a multitude of maimed and wounded to naught for the sake of their immoral political agenda.

They are willing to do that AGAIN. We have been able to witness that this week, with the shameful release of Feinstein's 'report' regarding CIA operations in the WOT.

Never trust a leftist. Not now. Not ever. Nowhere.

Don't you just LOVE it, De Standaard has found a new heroine in the person of Lena Dunham! Check it out:

 photo lena_dunham_DS_zpsfcfdb9b9.jpg


"Television maker Lena Dunham clashes with conservative America, but in Antwerp everybody loves her. How an 'edgy girl' got to be loved by everybody."

I'll spare you the nauseating bias and the umpteenth effort to depict Republicans and conservatives in the US as some kind of moronic subhumans who, oh, oppose Obamacare because a.) Obama is black, and/or b.) they just love letting the old and sick die in the gutter and/or c.) rejoice in their 'War on Women' or or or, etc etc etc. We've heard all that before. Point is, the gullible reader in Belgistan, relying for his news on De Standaard, is screwed again, because all he gets is such a one-sided picture and one so devoid of nuance and facts that next to it, the Pravda is exact science.

Now for some stuff Korneel Vandenbossche will never risk of coming across if he continues swallowing De Standaard drivel. First some revelations about Madam Dunham from The Daily Mail:

 photo Lena_Dunham_DM_zps2be8c537.jpg


Actor, 28, alleges that she was raped at Oberlin College in her memoir Not That Kind Of Girl
Media investigation at the Ohio campus found no proof of the man she describes in the book as her alleged attacker
Named as 'Barry', one man who somewhat fits the description says he has never met Dunham
Dunham has been accused of being 'grossly irresponsible' in publishing the claim
She did not report the incident to authorities

A media investigation into the allegations of rape featured in Lena Dunham's recently-released memoir has refuted the claims of sexual assault made by the Girls creator.
The writer, actor and director dedicates a chapter of her book, Not That Kind Of Girl - for which she received a reported $3.7 million advance - to a boy she met at Oberlin College in Ohio identified as 'Barry', who she alleges raped her one night after a party.

The 28-year-old admits in the tome to drinking alcohol and taking Xanax and cocaine before inviting Barry back to her on-campus apartment, but says the encounter quickly turned aggressive, and that Barry twice removed the condom during intercourse without telling her.

'I never gave permission to be rough, to stick himself inside me without a barrier between us,' she wrote.

'I never gave him permission.

'In my deepest self I know this, and the knowledge of it has kept me from sinking.'

Dunham's description of Barry is similarly explicit, explaining him as a 'mustachioed campus Republican' with a 'mustache that rode the line between ironic Williamsburg fashion and big buck hunter', who hosted a radio show called Real Talk With Jimbo, worked in the library stacking shelves and 'wore purple cowboy boots'.

She also said that he once punched a girl 'in the boob' at a party and, following a consensual sexual encounter, another girl woke to find blood spattered all over the wall 'like a crime scene'.

Furthermore Dunham does not state that 'Barry' is a pseudonym, as she does with other names that appear in her book.
An investigation by John Nolte from Breitbart News undertaken at the Oberlin campus, which was published Thursday, concluded that the 'Barry' Dunham describes is a 'ghost', and that no such person appeared to exist at the college during the years she studied there.
'In fact, we could not find anyone who remembered any Oberlin Republican who matched Dunham's colorful description,' Nolte wrote.
'Under scrutiny, Dunham's rape story didn’t just fall apart, it evaporated into pixie dust and blew away.'"

Conservative site Breitbart investigated Dunham's claim and came up with, a.o., the following (the Daily Mail article goes on):

"The Breitbart report followed an attack on Dunham by The National Review's hard-right columnist Kevin Williamson, who said she was 'grossly irresponsible' for publishing the rape claim in the first place.

Williamson said he spoke to a Barry who was a prominent Republican that attended Oberlin and that has been hounded by the media since the release of Not That Kind Of Girl in September.

This Barry told Williamson he has never met Dunham and did not have any kind of relationship with her.

He said the fact his name is Barry and that he is a Republican who went to Oberlin is 'the 'most unfortunate coincidence of my life'.

The man, who is married with kids, said he is petrified that his full name is going to be published.

Williamson then wrote of Dunham: 'It is at the very least the deployment of weaponized celebrity without any concern for collateral damage..."

OK, in the imaginary scenario of a leftozoid DS editor even willing to contemplate that there's more to this story and that it's not so favourable for our 'edgy girl', what we can expect then is that person claiming that the counterallegations come from a notorious rightwing site. Sure. That's why you don't have to take my word for it, and that's also why I do not posit that The Daily Mail offers bulletproof evidence to the contrary of Dunham's claims. But at age 49 I have come across such a gargantuan amount of lies and falsehoods perpetrated by the Left that I'm willing to believe that there was NEVER a 'mustachioed Conservative Republican' on Oberlin by the name of 'Barry' - and if there ever was, he did not rape her. Especially the last ten years I've seen the lies spread by the left multiply like ebola on steroids. From Piers Morgan who claimed British soldiers pissed on Iraqi POW's in an army truck over that other Barry 'if you like your plan you can keep your plan' to Hillary C. assuring Charles Woods, father of Navy SEAL Ty Woods, murdered in Benghazi, that "they were going to have that filmmaker arrested" [Mark Basseley Youssef - MFBB] - even though the movie made by that man was definitely NOT what triggered the embassy attack.

But hey, now that we're taking about rape, how about this??? In her own 'book', Not that kind of girl, Lena Dunham describes how she, as a child, sexually molested her younger sister:

"Dunham writes of casually masturbating while in bed next to her younger sister, of bribing her with “three pieces of candy if I could kiss her on the lips for five seconds … anything a sexual predator might do to woo a small suburban girl I was trying.” At one point, when her sister is a toddler, Lena Dunham pries open her vagina — “my curiosity got the best of me,” she offers, as though that were an explanation."

"In one particularly unsettling passage, Dunham experimented with her six-year younger sister’s vagina. “This was within the spectrum of things I did,” she writes.
In the collection of nonfiction personal accounts, Dunham describes using her little sister at times essentially as a sexual outlet, bribing her to kiss her for prolonged periods and even masturbating while she is in the bed beside her."

If you thought Kevin Williamson, the National Review columnist who came out with this, is sucking it out of his thumb, nossir. Here's the relevant page straight out of Dunham's memoirs:

 photo lena_dunham_book_zps83a6bf4b.jpg

BUT ALL OF THAT DOES NOT MATTER! De Standaard has found a new role model for young women to emulate!!! A new heroine, so sick from eeeeeeevil Republicans and their 'War on Women' that 'SHE HAS OFTEN THOUGHT OF LEAVING AMERICA'. Dixit De Standaard.

Memo to De Standaard editors: congrats you fucking lying losers, you again give here ample proof that you can lay just as much claim to the laurels of objective, fact-based Journalism - which you so often bestow upon yourself - as Michael Mann can to be a Nobel Laureate. Oh, excuse me, that's another leftist LIE we won't hear about from you.

As for Lena Dunham, PLEASE ma'am, DO LEAVE THE STATES. For good if you please.

But don't come to Europe, for God's sake. We've got our fill from the likes of you, and it's spilling over.

Go to Iran, Syria, Yemen, Mali, Gaza, Afghanistan. Now THERE they're waging a War on Women, even though you're trying so hard to ignore it. CUNT.

Joe Jackson with Happy Ending, a number from the iconic album Body and Soul (1984).

 photo JoeJacksonBodyAndSoul_zpsba8655b4.jpg

I remember Body and Soul well - it came out the year I started as a freshman in an engineering college in Ghent, and the world was full of promise and exciting possibilities. I had never been a jazz fan, but B & S's mix of jazz, pop and salsa fitted that brief era of being 'independent' in a large student town (backed up by parental cash of course) with bazillions of hot female students around. Especially this number sustained by Elaine Caswell's magnificent, at times ephemereal vocals struck a chord with Young Outlaw. To this day I consider it better than "You Can't Get What You Want (Till You Know What You Want)", even though that one peaked higher on all kinds of charts.

For the cover art Jackson gave a sympathetic nod to jazz legend Theodore Walter Rollins, whose album Sonny Rollins Vol. 2 from 1958 looks almost the same - except that it sports "Sonny" Rollins of course. Other great names on that album are pianists Thelonious Monk and Horace Silver.

Then it's the turn of Killing Joke with Love like Blood. From the 1985 album Night Time.

A campy video by now, or just plain annoying? Either way, a quintessential eighties number like this just had to be on Saturday Night one day.

Slaap wel.



... And buried in one of his countless smack-on opinion pieces Mark Steyn writes the following:

~The President convened a meeting at the White House today on policing in the wake of Ferguson. Among the participants was Al Sharpton, making his 82nd visit to Obama's Oval Office. The President does not, of course, have jurisdiction over crime and punishment in Ferguson, so there is something creepy and unsettling about what he's doing, even without the presence of the disgusting race-baiter Sharpton. Not so implicit in everything Obama says and does is that the grand-jury decision was wrong. As with immigration law, America's chief executive is engaging in presidential nullification - and, as I've said before, siding with the lawless over the lawful.

That's the point of it, isn't it? On the big screen and for an international audience, Coyote Obama soothes that 'we have to respect the jury's decision'. As soon as the cameras are turned away, he schemes to reverse it.

America certainly got 'change'.

Dhimmitude on steroids from the Spanish, who once conquered an Inca Empire with less than 200 soldiers:

 photo marca_cross_realmadrid_removed_zps0a1ecd60.jpg

The Spanish sports site reports that famous soccer club Real Madrid has cut a sponsoring deal with Abu Dhabi's National Bank and is therefore removing the Christian Cross from its logo.

Last September, Real Madrid signed a three-year contract amounting to around 90 million EUR. The deal involves adapting the club's logo. The Christian Cross on top, which is a sign of its relationship with the Spanish Court, will be omitted in the Arabic world.

The new logo will appear on credit cards of Abu Dhabi's National Bank and by removing the Christian symbol from its logo Real "does not want to offend islamic clients", according to Marca:

At the Battle of Cajamarca in 1532, Spanish Conquistador Francisco Pizarro beat an Incan Army of between 3,000 and 8,000 troops (accounts disagree) with a mere 168 Spanish soldiers, of which 62 were horsemen.

Pizarro was nobody's idea of an ideal son-in-law. It's something everybody who is referring to his breathtaking exploits will get on his plate. The same ones who point this out however invariably "forget" the bloody and viciously cruel civil war between Atahualpa, the Incan Emperor, and his brother Huascar, who was murdered by the former.

What is clear however is that the indomitable spirit of Pizarro is long gone. Real Madrid, which started its life in 1902 as the Madrid Football Club, had the prefix "Royal" (Real is Spanish for Royal) bestowed on it in 1920 by the then Spanish King Alfonso XIII. It naturally followed that the Club's emblem would feature not only the royal crown, but on top of it the Christian Cross, as the Spanish counted as the most ardent defenders of Catholic faith, and the Spanish Court has traditionally been the most visible exponent of that religious fervor.

I wonder what Alfonso XIII would think of this? Let alone Pizarro?

Take A GOOD, HARD LOOK at this godforsaken D-O-G, "Lord" Harries of Pentregarth, and look Western Decline in the eye:

A Daily Mail item with such an appalling message that it wants sane Westerners want to puke and worse:

 photo Multiculti_insanity2014_zpse330aa40.jpg

Read and shudder:

"Prince Charles’s coronation service should be opened with a reading from the Koran, a senior Church of England bishop said yesterday.

The gesture would be a ‘creative act of accommodation’ to make Muslims feel ‘embraced’ by the nation, Lord Harries of Pentregarth said.

But critics attacked the idea, accusing the Church of ‘losing confidence’ in its own institutions and traditions.

Lord Harries, a former Bishop of Oxford and a leading CofE liberal thinker, said he was sure Charles’s coronation would give scope to leaders of non-Christian religions to give their blessing to the new King.

The former Bishop of Oxford, who continues to serve as an assistant bishop in the diocese of Southwark, made the suggestion about the Koran during a House of Lords debate. He told peers the Church of England should take the lead in ‘exercising its historic position in a hospitable way’.

He said that at a civic service in Bristol Cathedral last year authorities had agreed to a reading of the opening passage of the Koran before the beginning of the Christian ritual. He said: ‘It was a brilliant creative act of accommodation that made the Muslim high sheriff feel, as she said, warmly embraced but did not alienate the core congregation.

‘That principle of hospitality can and should be reflected in many public ceremonies, including the next coronation service.’"

How weird, Lord Harry of Pentupfart, that we have not heard a peep from you when the 'creative acts of accommodation' of muslim grooming gangs vis-à-vis around 1,400 Rotherham teens came out:

 photo muslim_grooming2_zps91d22274.jpg

But what am I blathering about a mere 1,400 Rotherham teens? If you thought it was an isolated "incident", think again:

 photo muslim_grooming_zps4346dd58.jpg

Muslims may not feel 'embraced by the nation', but THEY are certainly 'embracing the nation', huh?

And what about Lee Rigby? Would that name ring a bell with Lord FuckFace of Pentregarth?

 photo Lee_Rigby_Adebowale_Adebolajo2_zpsd7f6bb50.jpg

Did nobody tell Lord Dogshit that Lee Rigby's 'funeral service' was 'opened with a reading from the Koran?'

Somebody fire this fool right away. Somebody FIRE HIM.


I said N-O-W!!!

An ominous CBN report on the devastating effects of islam and multiculturalism on French society:

I have come to the point where I have basically no use anymore for the French. As one commenter or another put it, the French can be reliably trusted to take the wrong decision on every major issue. I doubt seriously if Marine Le Pen's Front National can turn the tide and even if it does, it does not really subscribe to the core tenets of Western Conservatism, which is the only viable way out of the West's crisis.

And I may be wrong, but I fear Génération Identitaire will just remain a fringe group.

France is LOST. Even as French society is cracking along every seam, its stupid politicians keep acting like all is swell, with political heavyweights like a Juppé, so-called center-right, tripping over their feet to inaugurate mosques at every opportunity. Work ethic is practically nonexistent, with the "work"force essentially "working" in six week intervals, from congé to congé. In the land of 35-hour "work" weeks, is it any surprise that the Air France/KLM combination is having trouble? Whereas for sober Dutch managers a simple 20 minutes midday break with sandwiches and orange juice often suffices, their French counterparts still insist on lavish 2 ~ 3 hour lunches where exquisite (as yet) Bordeaux wines flow richly.

France may serve a purpose as a last moment warning to others, though. It is perhaps no surprise that the hardworking Poles seem to have noticed first the unstoppable decline of Frogistan: this is a screenshot from the online Polish magazine, of which the recent link was sent last week by my mother-in-law:

Marseille, pop. 850,000, is France's second largest city and its largest commercial port. Below you see a picture which was itself included as some kind of screenshot in the Natemat online article:

Guess you don't need comment, huh?

These are scenes from Marseille after the Algeria-France match:

My oldest sister has acquaintances living in upscale villages outside of Marseille, and they say it is rapidly turning into an all-out muslim hellhole, where all the niceties currently on display in the ME are being played out on a smaller scale.

Again via Natemat, a report on brazen gang activity in Marseille:

France is lost.

Outlaw Mike & family stay warm through the winter with heating oil, since we're too far out in the country to have natural gas mains near our home and besides, I don't like gas. For Americanos, by gas I mean methane of course, not petrol.

We have but a 2,000 litre tank under the lawn in front of our house, but still we need to fill it only twice a year, in February and November.

Last February I paid around 1,700 EUR for some 2,000 litres. Cripes.

Then last week when my wife woke me up saying I'd have to wash with cold water Outlaw Mike feared he would have to scrape the bottom of the money barrel again.

But no - imagine my surprise when my supplier left an invoice of only 1367 or so EUR for 1,935 litres! Well, okay, it's not that a boon of around 350 euros suddenly makes a world of difference. For the Clintons it might, poor bastards that they are.

But that don't mean we can throw with it either, so that little extra was more than welcome.

The Telegraph's Jeremy Warner has some thoughts. Happy thoughts:

"...For big oil-consuming regions – America, Europe and Asia – the collapse in the price is a boon, which ought to provide a substantial stimulus to economies becalmed by deficient demand. In both Britain and the US, there is already evidence that lower fuel prices are helping to boost consumer spending and confidence.

Yet for many oil exporters, it is a disaster. Ever since the Arab Spring, there has been an unwritten understanding that the price required to keep the natives quiescent is $100 a barrel or higher. The benchmark for Brent crude is now down to $71, with every possibility, given the abundant supply, of it going as low as $50.

For a low-cost producer like Saudi Arabia, with its huge financial cushion of overseas assets to fall back on, this may just about be tolerable, at least for a while. For many others, it’s a living nightmare with massive domestic and geopolitical implications.

We shouldn’t mourn that much. Ever since its foundation back in the Sixties, Opec has been a brutally destructive force on the global stage, whose malign grip on oil prices has helped sustain some particularly unsavoury regimes. The best analogy I can think of for its influence is that it is a bit like having your interest rate policy set by a small caucus of self-centred outsiders, who pay little or no regard to wider economic needs.


This monstrous cartel, an organisation which in any other line of business would be hunted down and prosecuted, may now be about to get its comeuppance. By ensuring that the price stayed above $100 a barrel for much of the past six or seven years, Opec has sowed the seeds of its own destruction. Those sky-high oil prices are one of the reasons why the global economy has been struggling. There is even quite a bit of evidence to suggest they were a key factor in tipping the world into crisis in the first place.

The effect on the oil market has been both to depress demand, while at the same time encouraging the development of other, non-Opec sources of production – the most striking example of which is American shale. There is a sense in which Opec's hubris has created its own nemesis. This is not unlike what happened after the oil price shocks of the Seventies, when by hiking up the price, Opec similarly pole-axed demand and spawned a worldwide search for alternative sources of energy supply, including Britain’s North Sea. Opec lost market share on a hitherto unprecedented scale amid the consequent glut.


Admittedly, some big growth markets remain – notably China, where new car sales are running at around 1.5 million a month. There’s life in the black stuff yet. Even so, the once-fashionable idea of “peak oil” – that the petroleum would run out before we’d found alternatives, or at least that the low-cost supply was close to exhaustion, leaving the world dependent on much more expensive sources – looks ever more misplaced.

I’m not saying that the oil price will never again get much above $80 a barrel. Inevitably it will. There are, no doubt, at least another couple of cycles left in the oil market yet. Hydrocarbon consumption still accounts for around a tenth of global GDP, and much of the rest of it owes its existence to the transformative power of oil. It will be many decades before the world frees itself of this dependence.

All the same, oil is steadily losing its power to shock – and so are Opec and its Bedouin masters. This is an overwhelmingly positive development, and in a gloom-ridden world, a matter for some celebration."

Mr Warner is right. By keeping prices so high for so long, OPEC has shot itself in the foot, spurring the West to look for alternatives. A considerable effort has of course gone to false leads, like solar and wind power. Don't get me wrong - there IS a niche for these things, but they can never substitute for the substantial demands of our industry and infrastructure.

However, part of the search for an alternative to OPEC oil has ultimately led to the exploitation of shale oil. And now that we have discovered its abundancy, and developed a technology to extract it - fracking - there's no stopping it anymore.

This is very good news. Of course, the lower oil prices are a bad thing for the couple of decent OPEC members; Ecuador, Nigeria. As for the rest, I couldn't care less. Finally, there's payback for four decades of being in the claws, energy-wise, of deranged Arabs who f*cked up our economies for the first time in 1973-74 because those monsters were unable to live in peace with a small prodigious country harming no-one: Israel. From the US over Europe to Japan, we all had to pay dearly for the malignant whims of the oil sheikhs. Degenerated religious idiots who were themselves incapable of extracting the very oil they were sitting on. They needed western intelligence, engineering and management to produce their riches, and what did they do with it? Finance the spreading of their hateful islamic message throughout the world. That barbaric appeal was directly responsible for decades of terror, culminating in 2001 in two airliners plunging themselves in the WTC, their tanks full of dearly paid kerosene.

Payback time!

Of course this evolution will not lead to an immediate collapse of the Saudis & Co. Like Mr Warner observes, global demand is bound to increase, spurred by China and other major countries taking off. To paraphrase Winston Churchill, this is not the end. It's not even the beginning of the end.

But the West, and especially the US, finally being able to provide for its energy needs without having to beg degenerated terrorism sponsors - that's certainly the end of the beginning. A matter for celebration, certainly.
