    Fascism alive and well in Spain-

    Spain’s PM has responded to Catalonia’s calls for dialog with a plan (announced today, minimizing press coverage) to remove its president and cabinet and to take over its institutions by force, effectively granting control of Catalonia to a party with just 8% of the vote’

    Trump to release last batch of Warren commission files on the Kennedy assassination-

    “Mr. Trump has the power to block the release of the documents, and intelligence agencies have pressured him to do so for at least some of them. The agencies are concerned that information contained in some of the documents could damage national security interests.”

    And that is precisely why it should be released IMO.

    • mawm says:

      The agencies concerned are more likely to be embarrassed by the release than national security damaged.

      • Darin says:

        Or implicated

        • mawm says:

          Trump has just painted a target on his chest – just like JFK did.

          • Question I have, what’s your theory about JFK? Was he shot because 10 days prior to being shot he bucked the banks by asking the Treasury to issue silver certificates. Or was it because he opposed Vietnam, where US soldiers were consuming poppies and making the Chinese rich?

            What’s your theory? Maybe this is why Hillabeast opposed Trump, to keep the information secret like your underwear.

            • Darin says:

              My theory is Kennedy despite everything else he might have been was opposed to the spread of international communism and he was on to how many government institutions worldwide had been infiltrated at the highest levels.

              One thing I am certain of is LHO was not just some lone wolf nutter acting alone.

              • Darin, that’s not fair, that covers all bases. Whether we are referring to Vietnam, and China’s poppy, or whether we are talking about debt based money, its all a form of communism.

                So Kennedy took on the octopus called communism, whereas my focus is which tentacle. The central bank is the 2nd or 5th plank of the communist manifesto.

      You have to wonder what planet these socialists live on. They are falling over each other to ban smoking but then want to decriminalise cannabis which has many of the same problems tobacco smoke has, oh and by the way is definitely linked to mental health issues in the youth. And now your new government wants a commission to look in youth mental health. We are going to need the “popcorn” emoji a lot over the next 3 years.

    A long read at American Thinker, but well worth the effort for those who have questions about the goals and philosophy of what I call, “The Second American Revolution” – which is peaceful and lawful on our side – starring Steve Bannon as the new Sam Adams [The Father of the American Revolution]

    Nevertheless, the rising tide of hate and violence from the Left means – IMNHO -bloody civil war in the long run, because no ruling class in history has went quietly into the night.

    • mawm says:

      Yeah. They parade around wearing as little as they can without getting charged for public indecency, sell their bodies to the highest bidder and then wonder why all these rich men who have been getting sex from them for promoting their careers behave like pigs in shit. Then having got as much as they can they turn around and kick them in the nuts. Not that I’m promoting the abuse of women, but they do have to take some responsibility for what has happened to them.

      Labour Day – Them old timer working men fought so hard back in the day the government had to give ’em a day off every year in recognition.

      This working man’s gonna celebrate his Labour Day by not getting covered in piss and shit.



      As it turns out, most if not all Instagram models make their living by being “sponsored,” meaning they get paid to fly to Dubai and have sex with an Arab sheik and ten of his best buddies. But these hoes don’t simply rent their pussies out for cash: they engage in some of the most disgusting sex acts you can imagine. Tag the Sponsor reveals just what these girls are willing to do for a little extra spending money:

      Yes this **** is real, I know a guy who is a “model recruiter” who gets paid to find girls who are basically willing to whore themselves out to rich Saudis with oil money. The Saudis pay anywhere from $10,000 to as much as $50,000 per girl for each trip which last anywhere from a weekend up to 2 weeks and they basically **** the **** out of the girls multiple times a day with with just about every fetish you could imagine including **** and pooping/peeing on the girls. The Saudis take pride in pooping/peeing on the girls and more often than not they make personal bets and hold contests to see who can get the most liquidy poop to drop on the girls faces, the winner gets to choose the next vacation spot and gets to pick his girls first.

      That’s right: the girls you see on Instagram with hordes of orbiters proclaiming how they would “suck a fart out of [her] ass” are getting paid to have Arabs squirt diarrhea in their faces. There’s even a colloquial term for these tarts:

      “Dubai porta potties.””””



      You’re both eating shit for a living so what’s the difference?

      Apart from the pay rates???

      [ you girls really are shitting all over that glass ceiling ]

      The difference,

      One of you eats filth to keep the white mans magic going.

      The other,

      Well the other is just a porta potty for servicing saudi sheiks.

      And in this patriarchal society we all know which piece of shits work is more worthy of respect and honour.

        • Jamie says:

          “Yeah, this one’s for the workers who toil night and day
          By hand and by brain to earn your pay
          Who for centuries long past for no more than your bread
          Have bled for your countries and counted your dead….

          In the factories and mills, in the shipyards and mines
          We’ve often been told to keep up with the times
          For our skills are not needed, they’ve streamlined the job
          And with sliderule and stopwatch our pride they have robbed

          And when the sky darkens and the prospect is war
          Who’s given the gun and then pushed to the fore
          And expected to die for the land of our birth
          Though we’ve never owned one lousy handful of earth?

          All of these things the worker has done
          From tilling the fields to carrying the gun
          We’ve been yoked to the plough since time first began
          And always expected to carry the can”

    Francis Porretto:
      ‘..  Over my 65 years I’ve heard more complete bullshit than my brain can hold, and nearly all of it has come from women. I’ve concluded that American women have been indoctrinated – operant-conditioned, really – to believe that their social status arises from how greatly and how frequently they can become offended. They who objected to Professor Williams’s article became offended merely because he cautioned them, and their daughters, not to do something obviously unwise.
         No one likes criticism. No one likes being told that he’s done a foolish thing that increased his chances of being harmed. But it’s in the nature of the universe, which has rather strict laws about cause and effect, that acting like a loose woman increases the probability of being treated like a loose woman, whether or not the treatment at issue would be legal. To do so in the presence of young men “on the prowl,” under conditions where sexual contact is, shall we say, not unknown, is sheerest idiocy. ..’
    Its not just American women, Francis.

    Cleaning up the Green Nazi’s mess-

    Divers are removing hundreds of old tires and debris environmentalists dumped off the coast of Southern California 30 years ago to help create an artificial barrier reef.

    Diving crews began cleaning up the mess earlier this month, according to the California Coastal Commission. Activist Rodolphe Streichenberger dumped the refuse in the bay in 1988 to establish an experimental, artificial reef – he fought for years to prevent its cleanup.

    • Pascal says:

      Well, I don’t care that I’m gonna step on a few toes, but I am finding it hard to take anyone seriously who still uses the SJW designation as Return of Kings did.

      It’s lazy. And the consequences of continued use will be worse than it becoming clichéd.

      Look I get it. We all feel compelled to use it because everyone knows to what sort of creeps SJW refers. But amongst themselves they look at it as a badge of honor — the same always inconsistent idiots who think waging war is a bad thing.

      Initially I could see any who opposed them using the term warrior for them in a sarcastic manner. But if there is anything that the SJCretins are consistent about it’s their lacking any sense of humor. Sarcasm is wasted on them. Only outright insults in return for the insults they hurl makes any sense nowadays — in fact that’s what conservatives detest about the GOPe types with their insistence we not call the opposition all the sinister terms they deserve.

      Calling a spade a spade is not only what Trump supporters like the most about Trump, it is also what those who have been luke warm about him give him credit for.

      Look the SJWC is a relatively new group. Don’t let them over time ruin the good and noble word warrior with it being connected to them. Don’t let them wear the badge dishonorably as the Progs and Libs with their preferred labels have simply because the SSM has long permitted them those labels.

      Both the Progs and libs have an agenda that is diametrically opposed to the longer words associated with them. Progs are the opposite of progressive with their post modernist, critical theory, PC tyrannies they’ve been cooking us with, and the Libs encourage government freedom (tyranny) that constrains individuals (anti-liberty).

      Please join me in creating a common parlance that contains a nasty designation for these rotten pukes. Social Justice Cretins doesn’t have to be it. Something, anything else. I’m warning you, over time they will erase the meaning of warrior just at the old meaning of gay can never be reclaimed. Simply don’t allow them SJW any longer. Please!

      • Pascal says:

        Look at what the Progs have done to justice by allowing them to append adjectives to it. I think social justice started with that moral retard Rousseau. For about 250 years now, the consequences of allowing justice to be narrowed like that has led to real and great injustices. Hard to be worse than have the murders of over 100 million connected with it.

        And in more recent years they seek to hamstring justice even more through the use of the term “environmental justice” too. See the two videos under the NZ Herald’s propaganda thread to grok the size of the abattoir needed where that’s headed!

        • KG says:

          I agree with every word you say , Pascal but the sad truth is that it would need someone with the public profile of a Trump to coin an alternative, sufficiently insulting term for the vermin. Then it just might catch on.
          Otherwise we’d have to explain the term every time we use it and it’ll never become common usage. It’d be a tedious business to no effect.

          • Pascal says:

            Well, I do my part. For example SJWC and Left Sinister. Yes it’s tedious, but it does get noticed.

            SSM has shown up elsewhere despite Lord knows how few are alive today that even know what Soviet means.

      • Pascal says:

        Exactly. The predominant media allows them an honorable label that is the exact opposite of their objectives.

        The only thing that could be seen as legitimately progressive about them is when the definition of progressive means incremental. incremental methods describes the way they snuck themselves and their ideologies into every institution.

    Not just Clinton and DNC, but FBI too.

    Some of Steele’s allegations began circulating in Washington in the summer of 2016 as the FBI launched its counterintelligence investigation into possible connections between Trump associates and the Kremlin. Around that time, Steele shared some of his findings with the FBI.

    After the election, the FBI agreed to pay Steele to continue gathering intelligence about Trump and Russia, but the bureau pulled out of the arrangement after Steele was publicly identified in news reports.

    Here’s the dirt on the FBI hands after Comey claimed FBI wasn’t involved in such things that might affect elections. Expect to see this disappear?

        I think the Left is intelligent enough to know that if they abandon the Hildabeast and Rapist Bill – the floodgates fly open and none of their Progressive leadership are safe – most especially Herr Mueller (who bears a striking resemblance to “Gestapo Mueller” of Third Reich fame) – So the current play looks like a “search and destroy” mission by Herr Mueller and his Gestapo agents of the evidence – and people – who bear witness to the greatest act of treason in American history.

        The key guy here is Sessions – who it would appear – was groomed for years as a deep state operative – and was found out too late by Trump. So even if he and Herr Mueller are fired today by Trump – the twosome have already ripped apart a new special prosecutor’s case.

        Anyhow, we both have always known this conflict ends in the traditional manner of civil war….and only by literally shooting the wrongdoers in the conflict can it end. As is well known, civil wars only end when one side murders the other.

    ‘Cyclists don’t need to give way to vehicles’: Police DEFEND bike riders who blocked traffic after refusing to use a cycle lane’

    • Darin says:

      “However, police say despite the cyclists having their own dedicated lane, there is no law to force the riders to use it.”

      Really?I thought it was called the law of physics?As in 3000lb car meets 20lb bicycle?
      So these idiots can ride in a mob and hog the whole road without a even care from the cops?If they were riding motorcycles the cops would be on them like white on Rice.
      I resent the whole walking/bike lane bullshit,it’s carving out a chunk of the roadway motorists pay for and giving it to a bunch of dickheads that think they own the whole damn thing.

  36. mawm says:

    Bike lanes are f@cking useless. They have all the ” mummy’s” on their bikes, pedestrians wandering along them, glass from bottles thrown out of cars, etc. There is no choice but to ride on the road – which is 100% legal. It is even legal to “occupy” a lane if you feel it is safer to do so – eg roundabouts. It is also legal to ride 2 abreast. What is not legal is to threaten physical harm to other road users. Bikers are frequently killed by drivers who are aggressive toward them, the “punishment pass” is particularly frightening if you are on a bike. If I had my way every cyclist death from a collision with a car would start with being investigated as being an homicide. I see that in the UK someone had posted anti cyclist rhetoric on fakebook and was later charged with murder after killing a cyclist because of his aggressive behaviour toward them.

    • Darin says:

      We have a lot of people who ride here where I live,but they know the rules of the road.They can use the same lane as vehicular traffic,but must follow the same rules,stopping at intersections etc.
      Here it’s never those people that are using their bike for transportation or a weekend ride that are the problem.It’s the Lycra clad road warriors that are the problem,especially out in the countryside where they often run in packs of 15 or 20 and take up both sides of the road.Those idiots want to argue right of way with farm equipment even though the law clearly states farm equipment has the right of way.

      • mawm says:

        I agree, packs of Lycra clad racers are a pain, even for the rest of us cyclists. The comment about cyclists jumping lights etc…..have you never seen any motorists breaking the law? I see them doing so all the time and often as a direct physical threat to me. I obey the law all the time but for some reason or other have motorists raging at me all the time.

          It’s the negative attitude motorists have towards cyclists at fault here,but that negative attitude has resulted from the sh-tty behavior of some in the cyclist community.For whatever reason absolute thick headed idiots are over represented in the cyclist population.In the past year I have seen one maybe two cars run red lights,it’s three or four a week for bikes.I see some of the stuff these idiots do and it’s always things they most likely wouldn’t do if they were driving a car.It’s like they think they have a force field around them.
          In any rate,no offense was intended Mawm,I do still ride when the weather is good,but it seems the idiot Philistines are gaining in numbers these days.

            Yeah, I know what you mean. I ride on the road to keep fit for doing what I really enjoy – off-road/backroad bike packing. If only the knees ……

    Does this look like utter incompetence to you? Because it sure does to Wabbit. Which makes me think it’s maybe a PR stunt.
    They had sails and a mast. Yet they were “stranded” for five months? Bullshit. This story is full of holes.
    ‘One of their cellphones washed overboard and sank into the deep blue water on their first day at sea.’
    No voyager relies on a cellphone
    ‘About a month into their trip, bad weather caused their engine to lose power.’
    Which should be all but irrelevant to any competent sailor, once clear of land.
    ‘Their mast was damaged.’
    It was still standing, meaning a jury-rig was perfectly feasible.
    ‘And then, as they drifted across thousands of miles of open ocean, their water purifier stopped working.’
    So? What measures did they take to collect rainwater?
    ‘But the two sailors, accompanied by their dogs, were resourceful’
    Obviously they were not.
    ‘the women began making distress calls, but there were no vessels close and they were too far out to sea for the signals to be detected on land.’
    What were they using, an effing CB radio? Yet a Taiwanese fishing boat spotted them and was able to call up the USN. Why didn’t it at least pull up alongside and check, as it was obliged to do? And what about an EPIRB? Satellites?

    This shambles must surely be a publicity stunt.

      I don’t think so,people are just that stupid now,especially when it comes to boats and RV’s.

      One was a buddy of mine bought a nice new 28′ Aluminum Allweld offshore boat.250 hp go somewhere fishing boat,center console,sat nav,radar 300 gallon live well,stainless Bimini top the works.He’ reading through the owners manual and is reading off the specs.”500mile range at 24 knots….hmmm….wow! I can run 500 miles out now?” No! I says,you can run 250 miles out max in calm seas and you had better figure on 175 miles max so you have some reserve. “How you figure that?Book says I got a 500 mile range? -It’s called “bingo fuel” you had better read up on it :roll:

      A neighbor made a frantic call to his wife after going out in the Gulf of Mexico in his John boat and loosing sight of land. Panicking because he didn’t know what to do he wanted her to call the CG and tell them where he was at.Luckily his son was at home who is a skipper on an oilfield supply boat,he told his dad to calm down,turn the boat due north and keep on that heading.It’s the GOM,heading north long enough and you will run into land :roll:

    U.S. to Direct Humanitarian Programs in Mid East; No More U.N. Funding
    Pence called it a “sad reality” that the main U.N. presence in terror-ridden places like Syria and Iraq is their flag posted on abandoned buildings in places where persecuted Christians are not even present.
    “And while faith-based groups with proven track records and deep roots in these communities are more than willing to assist, the United Nations too often denies their funding requests,” Pence said.

      If properly supported by the West, the non-communist white regimes in southern Africa would still be in existence today and the mineral rich area still in Western hands – Instead there was a cowardly sellout by Britain and the USA – as a result southern Africa is a typical communist shithole today with whites being hunted down and murdered.

      Some of his facts seem to be wrong. Koevoet started before the date given. I was in Ovamboland in ’77 and they were already operating and formidable. The kill ratios are also a bit out. In No 2 operational area – west Ovamboland, the various units like the paras and certain civilian force units were having huge successes and in the time I was there there was only one SADF death. I saw dozens of “other” corpses. Most of the patrols were on foot and the Boer farmer trackers were better than the Bushmen (Khoi San). I think that the Caprivi Strip, which is not part of Ovamboland, was almost entirely policed by the SAP of which Koevoet was part.

        Yep. But overall it gives a fairly good general picture of the times.

          Yes of course. Like in Rhodesia and Vietnam it was a political defeat, not military. Those SA forces killed by SWAPO and the Cubans are not recognised by the new fuckwit government whereas the ANC umkontwe i sizwe useless, unsuccessful, drunken layabouts are hailed as heroes.

          Taps for the gallant fallen South African and Rhodesian soldiers who fought the good fight for the greater glory of Western Civilization….The countries they defended may have lost in the end, but they sent to Hell countless bastard Communists, and they never left the battlefield defeated!

          It warms my heart to know the West is well populated with these warriors, who may have given in and departed the dark continent for their safety and that of their families after the fall, but who never gave up.

          Like American Vietnam War soldier-survivors, the veterans of the southern African wars gave in to the inevitable – BUT WE NEVER GAVE UP!

          There is no disgrace in an honorable and well ordered withdrawal to higher ground that can be more easily defended.
