When any non-Islamic country, such as France, attains approximately a ten-percent Muslim population through dangerously naive immigration policies, violence and civil war become a constant threat. Ten percent of a total national population translates into more than fifty-percent of fighting-age men in key urban districts, due to the concentration of Muslims in Sharia-zone ghettos, combined with aging European demographics. Later, these Muslim ghettos will serve as sanctuaries and bastions for the jihadists, until and unless they are finally pulverized with artillery shell fire or aerial bombs. France and Germany will not be exempt from the lessons of history that were hard taught in Beirut, Sarajevo, and Damascus.
Thousands of the recent Muslim muhajirs currently arriving in Europe were schooled in prolonged and savage religious and ethnic civil wars. Today’s Europeans, deliberately brainwashed with politically correct fairytales about the benefits of multi-culturalism, have utterly no idea what horrors await them. Increasing European discomfort will not change the outcome one iota. Just because the Europeans may tire of the irritating presence of Muslims (both new immigrants and native born), the Muslims will never willingly leave Europe. Nor will the Muslim immigrant invaders knuckle under and turn quiet and docile again.

Beyond the scourge of drugs, what drives the crime rate in Chicago is the same thing that contributes to crime in so many other American cities — family breakdown and particularly the absence of responsible fathers. The fate of Laquan McDonald, abandoned by his father when he was 3 years old, is not a rare occurrence for kids in Chicago, and is increasingly common across the United States. Forty percent of children were born to unmarried women in 2013, and more than 70% of black children are born to unwed mothers. Given these socio-economic realities, isn’t it obvious that black kids in Chicago have problems that cannot be blamed on racist cops? Officer Jason Van Dyke is charged with murder, but the hourly updates on CNN about “unrest” in Chicago isn’t a story about one trigger-happy cop. No, it’s the Endless White Guilt Trip that the liberal media can’t quit shoving at us, insisting that “society” (a term that is liberal media shorthand for white middle-class suburbanites) is to blame for whatever is wrong in American race relations.
The problem with this kind of blame-shifting — to make “society” or “racism” the explanation of what happened to Laquan McDonald is that it is antithetical to personal responsibility. Instead of blaming the criminal for his fate, we blame society. Instead of blaming the cop, we blame racism. Why are there protest mobs on the streets demanding “Justice for Laquan” when (a) his mother already got $5 million from the city, and (b) the cop who shot Laquan has been charged with murder?

Just doing my part….
The plight of the neurotic and oft offended new children of the corn…
“The person will pass from the bubble of college to the bubble of social enforcement, keen on perfecting the world. And for the rest of his or her or xer professional life, they’ll be shouting BE QUIET to a calm, rational adult who is too terrified to say “you’re a terrible child who understands nothing. Go to your room.”
These people will produce nothing. They will create no great art, write no symphonies, conjure no novels that speak across the decades, sculpt nothing of beauty. The world outside the bubble is irredeemable. It cannot, of course, be remade all at once, but tomorrow’s a new day. Rome wasn’t wrecked in a day.”

It comes to mind that there is a bunch of peripheral stuff going on that has the media, politicians, and the American public so inundated with crisis, it’s hard to focus on important issues of the day. Now all of these things may be coincidence but it keeps our attention shifting from one crisis to the next, when our attention should be on one thing only, which is getting this country healthy again.
I don’t know about you, but I think the U.S. has more to worry about, more too focus on, than bringing in a new batch of refugees. If the U.S. government doesn’t tighten it’s collective belt, it won’t matter that Putin is in the Ukraine, it won’t matter that ISIS has taken another city, it won’t matter that college students are offended by whatever injustice they perceive has been done to them, it won’t matter that the LGTB community can’t buy a cake, it won’t matter how many Mexicans are here, it won’t matter whether climate change is a hoax, it won’t matter because the country will have destroyed itself by the very people who were elected to protect her.
This country is in free fall thanks to Democrats and Republicans alike and until we stop throwing good money after bad, our fate will have already been chosen for us by political incompetence. Choose your next President wisely my friends. Keep your eye on the ball and remember the person elected will need to undo a half century of bad decisions pushed by progressive agendas and self serving politicians.
$3.25 Trillion: Government Collects Record-High Taxes in Fiscal Year 2015. Although the federal government brought in approximately $3.25 trillion in revenue in fiscal 2015, according to the Treasury, it also spent approximately $3.69 trillion, leaving a deficit of approximately $438 billion.
So to be clear, apparently 3.25 Trillion is not enough. My question, your question, and the question to be asked of our elected officials….why? If it were your family budget I would imagine you would be in trouble, maybe lose your home…….same thing for the country if you think about it.
Somebody has to run the place, but the government now employs more people than manufacturing….disgusting really.
So as you choose your next President, think about the man or women who has stood up against big government, is not content with the status quo, and is wiling to make enemies not friends in DC. I am aware of one.by jeffli6 with no comments yet

Notice that ISIS does something terrible, and the overwhelming thrust of the conversation on Meet the Press is that the American people have done something wrong and must look inside their hearts and feel guilty over the overwhelming racism and Islamaphobia in their society. News flash: We’re not the villains here.
