‘Handing the Keys of the World to Our Teen-aged Leaders’
An interesting angle on the perils of climate activism from Richard Fernandez.
I’ve spent some time lately shooting Gecko’s CZ 452 in .17HMR. Nickel-plated, short, heavy barrel. Fitted with a Leupold ‘scope.
The accuracy of the thing is phenomenal. We have a target set up at 130 metres and it shoots small, tight groups at this distance even in fairly breezy conditions.
I changed ammunition from the popular 17gr. Hornady V-Max (polymer tipped) to CCI Gamepoint 20gr.hollowpoint and the accuracy is unchanged, although penetration is vastly improved.
Drawbacks? A rough bolt action and a bloody horrible trigger straight out of the box. So, a few hours spent filing and polishing and the action is now smooth and the trigger breaks at less than half a pound. (Yep, it passes the bump test). It’s now a beautifully accurate, relatively quiet all-round useful rifle. I’d recommend one to anybody considering buying a .17 HMR.
‘It’s cronyism, not capitalism..!!
There’s no damn free market. There’s merely a mass of cronyist dealings between fake businessmen/ women and politicians and bureaucrats and these deals intrude into just about every facet of our lives…’
Damn right. And it’s far, far worse than that.
‘The two wars in Syria.
The three most serious crises in the world are (1) the deliberate transformation of the United States by means of the open southern border so beloved of Republicans and Democrats, (2) the ongoing invasion of Europe by young Muslim males of military age, and (3) the two dirty, phony wars in Syria in which the U.S. has pretended to fight but actually covertly supported ISIS and al Qaida savages while being Turkey’s, Saudi Arabia’s, and Qatar’s bitch….’
‘…Turkey’s 75 million citizens will be given the right to travel to and within Europe without a visa next year after European Union leaders took a gamble yesterday that the country could solve the continent’s migration crisis.
It’s meant to be a payment for help in stopping illegal immigration:
EU leaders on Sunday signed a deal meaning that Ankara will take back deported migrants from European countries in exchange for visa restrictions to be lifted and talks on Turkey joining the EU to be accelerated…’ Link
Fairfax Media is a global partner of the United Nations Foundation
That makes Fairfax papers – The Age and Sydney Morning Herald – just propaganda sheets for an activist group pushing global warming. Do not expect any balance or impartiality in their coverage.
Take a look at the United Nations Foundation, and you’ll see just how far the tentacles of these evil bastards reach.
Matthew Bracken, on WW3:
‘..Going into 2016, I believe that Europe is primed to become the central theater of a third world war. Like an overstrained zipper suddenly failing and bursting open from end to end, the European conflagration could well reignite simmering conflicts from the Ukraine to the Persian Gulf, due to interlocking alliances (NATO, including Turkey, vs. Russia), and the Sunni-Shia divide (Iran vs. Saudi Arabia, which has been imported into Europe).
…Right now, approximately a million new Muslim migrants are engaged in a struggle to find a warm place to sleep in a continent with nothing approaching the capacity to adequately house them. At least 75% of the migrant invaders are Muslim men of fighting age. Native-born ethnic Germans, Swedes and others are being thrown onto the street to provide emergency housing for Muslim “refugees.” Tens of thousands of migrants are currently living in tents, and in temporary shelters like school gymnasiums and underused warehouses.
There will be no means of finding or creating permanent quarters for them before the Central European blizzards come. When the snow is deep in Germany and across Europe, these men are going to enter local houses, demanding to be taken in as boarders—or else. Where it is useful, small migrant children will be held up in front as human shields for their emotional blackmail value; elsewise, they will be discarded. One way or the other, Muslim migrants will be attempting to move inside of German homes and apartments seeking heat and food, and the young Muslim men will be seeking undefended infidel or kafir women to slake their lust (which is their right, under Islamic Sharia law).
…To understand Europe’s future, simply ask the Lebanese what follows when a nation takes in tens of thousands of angry Muslim “refugees.” Civil war is what happens, even if it begins among the various competing refugee factions. It is a threadbare hope that a wished-for peaceful silent majority of Muslims will be able to influence the radical Islamists away from violence, and thus forestall the coming European Civil War, any more than imagined peaceful silent majorities could have prevented the civil wars in Lebanon, Bosnia, Syria or a dozen other places. Actual peace-loving Muslims will be as insignificant to the outcome of the coming conflict as were any Quaker pacifists hiding in 1944 Berlin. The only significance of the alleged silent majority of peaceful Muslims is that they will serve as living camouflage for the jihadists to hide among…’

The message is clear, and nobody here needs it spelled out.
