The Continental Transfer to Europe

(Image by Robert Ariail)

Europe's "Refugee" Crisis continues with no end in sight to the influx.

On Sunday, Diana West tweeted this wasn't just a refugee crisis, but a "continental transfer," which I used her appropriate term as a title for this post.

However, not all of the transferees are happy with their new locals.

Apparently, Finland is "no good," and the transferees are turning back.

Comrade Karla asked us:

What is this, Refugee Tourism?

While another on-line friend commented on the twenty-something transferee whining about the lack of bars in the Land of the Laplanders:

I forget but I don’t think bars and nightlife are very high on Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs.  As I recall food, shelter and clothing are right up there though.

The low opinion of Finland by transferees is a blessing to the Finns. 

According to the Gatestone Institute, Germany is experiencing a rape epidemic.

After discussing the "Fiorina-Trump Feud," Mark Steyn points out that during this Europe-wide tour of the Camp of the Saints it's not just the influx of jihadists and rapists, it's the lack of will to defend one's own culture.

If the Europeans continue to cruise down the Dhimmitude Highway, they'll be called Eloipeans...

...but we Americans won't be too far behind.

The Prime Directive Protecting Pedophiles

(Image by Lisa Benson)

Star Trek's Prime Directive (non-interference with other cultures), sounds good on paper or e-reader, but often proved inadequate at resolving some critical issue presented in a particular episode, ever since the original series aired back in 1966.

But Star Trek is speculative fiction, leaving no lasting consequences.

Reality can be brutal, often leaving scars, even if they're not visible.

Apparently, Afghan Muslims aren't willing to wait until they enter Paradise to get their 72 virgins.   (See yesterday's humorous post--you're going to need it after reading what follows).

Last week, the New York Times (NYT) broke the story of US soldiers being told to ignore the sexual abuse of boys committed by our Afghan allies, followed by a FOX News report of the Army kicking out a decorated Green Beret for defending a rape victim.

The Weekly Standard declared this was a national shame that had been going on for years.

Meanwhile, the DoD is under scrutiny for the handling of the pedophile Prime Directive, which various mouthpieces deny there were official orders for non-interference.

Take special notice of the Army major facing a court martial for transmitting a warning about an Afghan commander's band of "tea boys," via unsecured, personal e-mail. 

Unfortunately, the major's name isn't Hillary Clinton.

Michelle Malkin is appalled at Obama's silence on the matter and thinks it's long overdue for Our Dear Leader to return his Nobel Prize.

Tour Buses Collided in Seattle

Yesterday, a tour bus and a "Duck" collided, killing four and seriously injuring a dozen more riders.

King-5 News also has the story and a 9 minute video with images taken at the scene.

Ride the Ducks is a popular mode of travel for tourists.

Misgivings About Muslim US Presidents

(Image by Bob Gorrell)

Last weekend Trump's closest contender, Dr. Ben Carson, ruffled the feathers of the PC Commissars when he said he didn't agree with the idea of a Muslim being President of the US.

And the good doctor is sticking to his stethoscope.  Instead of apologizing, he said we need to fix the PC Culture

Eradicating it would be more to my liking.

But the Good Doctor is only one of two candidates (so far) the PC Commissars are upset with.

The other one is--surprise!--Donald Trump.

Trump's latest cardinal sin? 

Not correcting a man referring to Obama as a Muslim during a NH townhall meeting.

The Diplomad reminds us that Trump was/is not obligated to defend Obama--on anything.  This goes for the rest of the candidates remaining in Pachyderm Parade (Scott Walker bailed a couple days ago).

Meanwhile, Mark Steyn counter-attacked with a seven-item volley, effectively telling the Palace Guard creeps to get lost.

Also in his Mohammed Goes to Washington? article, Mark points out the Constitution doesn't impose a religious test, but it imposes a Constitutional one.  That is, the POTUS must uphold the US Constitution.  But here in America and abroad, news stories have abounded about Muslims seeking to impose some sharia-based law on their community, or obtain some sharia-based exemption from the host-country's law.

This doesn't set a good precedent for a potential openly-Muslim presidential candidate.

As to whether I think Our Dear Leader truly is a Muslim or not, I agree with Point #5 Mark made in his Get Lost article--

--Obama's dad & step-dad were Muslims.
--Islam considers converting to other religions as apostasy--punishable by death.
--Obama has never clearly renounced Islam.


--I consider him a closet Muslim engaged in taqiyya at worst, or a non-practicing one at best, if there is such a thing. 

Once Obama's presidency is over, I wouldn't be surprised if Obama makes a "sudden" public conversion to Islam.

More than likely though, he'll remain the same shadowy character he's been throughout his hazy -public life, leaving us with debate-fodder for historians and conspiracy theorists for years to come.

But regardless of Obama's current religious preference, the end result is still the same...

The So-Called Syrians

(Image by Gary Varvel)
It appears that most of the Syrian refugees fleeing war-torn Syria aren't Syrians fleeing war-torn Syria after all:  EU data reported 80% of the incoming migrants are not from Syria.
No matter where the migrating "Camp of the Saints" comes from, there is a growing concern of seeing some/most/all of the countries in the Eurozone becoming destabilized, especially at "Main Gate" of the Balkans.
Meanwhile, here within the crumbling ramparts of "Fortress America,"  Hillary thinks it be a great idea to take in 65k refugees, instead of the 10k Obama plans on allowing.
Her proposal, as has been typical of the previous Imperial Decrees set forth by the Ruling Class, is contrary to what the voters really want.  In this case, a majority of Americans reject the notion of bringing in refugees to the US.
Our country has enough "clockmakers," thank you very much.  We don't need any more...

Half-Baked Debates

(Image by Nate Beeler)
Pundits are still pondering last week's GOP Pachyderm Parade Debates on CNN. 
Greg Gutfeld had this humorous warning that no matter who's declared a debate winner or loser, GOP candidates need to face the deadly music afterwards.
Mark Steyn remarked that what's unfolding will not be a normal GOP primary process.
While it's easy--and fun--to criticize how the debates were and are being orchestrated, and how the candidates respond (or not), at least the GOP is having debates.
Unlike Donkey Drove...

But there's growing unrest among the DNC ranks.  DNC Chairwoman has been heckled about scheduling more debates.

Cleaning our Clocks with Political Correctness

(Image by Chip Bok)

Last week, I started seeing headlines about "Ahmed's Clock."  At the onset, the story was being peddled as one of a one nerdy Muslim kid vs. cabal of racist-Islamaphobe teachers and police. 

The kid was immediately hailed as the Muslim Hero America has been waiting for.

I don't know about you, but I'm still waiting.

Because:  As it turned out, Ahmed's "clock" is most likely not all that it's cracked up to be.

Despite Ahmed's clock becoming a convenient--and false--tale of racism he still managed to get a White House invite, along with praises from the likes of Mark Zuckerberg and MIT.

The Diplomad sums this up as another Progressive fairy tale.

Which makes me wonder:  How will the next Progressive fairy tale end?

PRC's Prez to Visit Seattle

(Image by Gabriel Campanario of the Seattle Times)
To say America has issues with the People's Republic of China (PRC--a euphemism for communist dictatorship), would be an understatement.

Still, it is a good thing for world leaders to visit other countries and get together with their counterparts. 

As long as we're not the only ones making concessions--like in Our Dear Leader's proposed nuke deal with Iran. 

However, despite any attempts at goodwill and cheer China's presidential visit may entail, thorny issues roil relations between the US and the PRC will probably be the proverbial panda bear in the living room.

Terrorist Membership Not Required Among Refugees

(Image by Robert Ariail)
That may be.
However, The Diplomad points out the fallacy of the assumption that membership to known terrorists groups is required in order to be considered a threat.
We've seen several lone wolf, and even "known wolf" attacks since 9/11.
It doesn't take a bona fide terrorist to knock down a Hungarian border fence.  (Although, Hungarian officials claim to have detained 1 certified jihadi among the 29 apprehended during the border clash).
Robert Spencer delves into the past and warns us that the current migration of the "Camp of the Saints" has historical precedence.  The Hijrah, or jihad by emigration, is considered a worthy goal of introducing Islam into infidel lands with the end-game being to overturn a host country's culture.
We see this on a regular basis when Muslims, individually or in grievance groups, claim they're offended by whatever infidel behavior irks them--like  celebrating Oktoberfest.

 Raymond Ibrahim offers this sound advice:  Western nations should only accept Christian refugees.
