The results are in…


Barack Obama and his Attorney General Eric Holder failed to examine their own statements on race over the past few months, and instead put out self-serving comments about the killings. As both, Obama and Holder condemn police executions, The Cost of Race Hustling continues to rise.

Stirring emotions and wearing expensive suits before a fawning media with microphones and cameras has its countervailing effects.  Burning buildings and lost businesses are terrible material consequential losses. But of late, the deaths, the execution of two police officers sworn to serve and protect fill the loss column.

Race hustling is a violent sport. Fake reverends and loopy mayors should check their doorsteps to see what has been laid there because of their inflammatory conduct.  Those held as the highest legal authority in the country should hold in check their acquired biases and tricky tactics such as withholding investigatory testimonies that may bring truth and clarity rather than feed the fire.  Pro athletes should stick to their games, put away the t shirts and quit the self righteous posturing.

We will hear that the executions of the police officers were not about Ferguson or Staten Island. We will be told it is from a larger “problem”.  Untrue.  We will be told that, all along, the message has been “non violence” from the fomenters. If that was the message, it was whispered into a sleeve.

So, to those who stir emotions before microphones, finesse the facts and testimonies that might change perceptions from myth to truth, next time you slip on your $400 shoes and your $2000 suit and climb into your limo, check your doorstep on the way out of your luxury abode.  You may have to step over a couple of bodies today.  — James Longstreet, American Thinker

Just sayin’, Playin’ with race cards – again


If an administration isn’t supported by the people, ‘collapse’ is just a matter of time,”  commentary by Lt. Gen. Wang Hongguang, a retired Chinese general with impeccable Communist Party credentials… referring to Obama’s doppelgänger in the D.P.R.K. Perhaps the key is to never count your money when you’re sittin’ at the table

Just in time and almost as if it was pre-planned just like all the self-serving comments top politician’s made to the media….

Black Muslim Who Quoted Koran Murders 2 NYPD Cops as “Revenge for Garner”

Here’s what race baiting leads to. The blood of these police officers is on the hands of Bill de Blasio. It’s on the hands of Obama. It’s on Al Sharpton’s hands (but his hands are covered in blood from Crown Heights and Freddy’s) and they’re on the hands of a media that helped whip up the racist rants.

Ismaaiyl Abdullah Brinsley announced on Instagram, They Take 1 Of Ours … Let’s Take 2 of Theirs. And murdered two police officers.

He apparently spoke Arabic and his Facebook page from March 17 included a screenshot of the Koran.

The verses involve Jihad.

Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies, of Allah and your enemies, and others besides, whom ye may not know, but whom Allah doth know. Whatever ye shall spend in the cause of Allah, shall be repaid unto you, and ye shall not be treated unjustly.

Zale Thompson, the last racist attacker who targeted cops, had also been a Muslim and had promoted Jihad. –Daniel Greenfield, FrontPage

The verdict is still pending, but the results are in, and with hateful hearts and empty minds, Barry Soetoro, aka Barack Obama, Eric Holder, Bill deBlasio, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and the rest of the “hands up, I can’t breathe” posse will agree…“We don’t actually know anything about the alleged perpetrator other than the fact he has nothing to do with Islam, Muslims or militant black racists.

By virtue of the statements they make, and like those they gleefully incite, observe how this truly defines “hate crime” – there is blood on their hands and heads, unfortunately, sooner or later, as fate will have it, they will likely be losing much of their very own.

Gamalana volcano (Ternate Island, Indonesia): new eruption, likely some fatalities

The volcano, one of the most active in the region, erupted unexpectedly last night (Thursday evening, 22:41 local time).
Unfortunately, it seems that the eruption claimed at least some victims: Several people (10-12 according to varying news reports) were on the volcano, a popular hiking destination, when the initial explosion occurred at night. At least two of them were reported missing, presumably killed, and several others wounded, mainly from injuries suffered when falling during their escape.  Explosions and ongoing ash emissions continued throughout Friday and produced ash plumes that drifted eastwards, caused ash fall at the Ternate airport which had to be shut down. More than 5 cm of ash covered the runway and some parked aircraft.  The Indonesian Volcanological Survey (VSI) raised the alert level of Gamalana to 3 (on a scale of 1-4). So far, no evacuation orders were given by authorities. The small island, only approx. 10 km in diameter, consists essentially of the volcano’s cone above sea level and is very exposed to mud flows or pyroclastic flows that could occur during or as a result of explosive activity. Evacuations would likely need to involve dislocation to one of the neighboring islands in case of a major eruption.  It seem that the eruption was not preceded by anything unusual, only a weak tremor signal was recorded about half an hour before, which in itself is not very unusual on any active volcano and not enough to predict an eruption.  It is not clear what the nature of this eruption is and whether it involves fresh magma or only steam-driven explosions (phreatic activity), but the observed glow on the upper flank below the summit suggest that a lava flow was active from a vent below the summit crater.

Indonesia temporarily closed a domestic airport on Friday after a volcano in the country’s east erupted, spewing plumes of ash hundreds of metres into the air, officials said. The volcano, Mount Gamalama – which forms the entire island of Ternate in North Maluku province – erupted late Thursday and was still coughing up ash the following day. While no one in the area has yet been told to evacuate, an airport in Ternate town at the mountain’s foot was forced to close, the transport ministry said. “We closed the Sultan Baabulah airport this morning as the volcanic ash may pose a risk to planes,” said ministry spokesman J.A. Barata, adding that the airfield was covered with thick ash. The airport could reopen Saturday if there are no further eruptions, Barata said. Darno Lamane, an official at the volcano monitoring post, said the 1,715-metre volcano continued to spew ash in plumes of up to 600 metres on Friday. A local disaster management agency official said that 11 hikers who had been at the volcano when it erupted managed to escape, but some were injured as they clambered down. “There were 11 hikers injured while running down the slope during the eruption. Three of them are being hospitalised for broken bones,” Mansur Mahli said. Indonesia sits on the Pacific “Ring of Fire” where continental plates collide, causing frequent seismic and volcanic activity. The archipelago nation is home to 129 active volcanoes, including 21 on Java.

Volcano Eruption in Indonesia on Friday, 19 December, 2014 at 04:51 (04:51 AM) UTC.

Mount Gamalama in North Maluku province of Indonesia erupted Thursday night, forcing the authorities to close an airport and issue warnings to planes, officials said here on Friday. The volcano located near Ternate city spewed a column of ash to the sky, Nia Hairani, an official from the national volcanology agency, told Xinhua by phone. An evacuation zone of 3.5 km has been ordered, Hairani said. In spite of no order of evacuation so far, the communities living in the slope of the volcano are asked to be alert on the flows of the rivers, whose upstreams are near the volcano, for possible danger of cool lava, Amirruddin, a senior official from the disaster management agency in North Maluku province, said. “The communities are ordered to be on alert of possible cool lava flowing in rivers as rain is frequent in recent days,” he told Xinhua by phone on Friday from the province. The ash of the volcano has disturbed flights and the Indonesian transport ministry closed the airport in Ternate city on Friday and warned planes to avoid the routes around the erupting volcano, J.A. Barata, a spokesman of the Indonesian transport ministry, said. “Sultan Babullah airport is temporarily closed from 09:00 a.m. to 12:00 a.m. local time, and the warning to planes is also issued at 09:00 a.m. and will be in place until 12:00 a.m.” he told Xinhua by phone. The measures would be reviewed after they expire and the officials would decide on whether to extend them or not, said Barata. Last year, Mount Lokon volcano in North Sulawesi erupted, spewing a column of ash that disturbed flights from and to Australia. To monitor the eruption and seismic activity of the volcano, Hairini said that a task force team from the headquarters of the agency has been deployed to the slope of Mount Gamalama.

Merry Yule – Happy Winter Solstice!


The winter solstice marks the first day of astronomical winter. The New Moon is in Capricorn and heralds a time of cleansing transformation. The wheel of the seasons continue to turn and change from darkness to light awaits us.

Winter Solstice

Northern Hemisphere – (North America, Central America, Europe, Asia, northern Africa) December solstice 2014: December 21, at 23:03 UTC.

Solstices are opposite on either side of the equator, so the winter solstice in the northern hemisphere is the summer solstice in the southern hemisphere and vice versa.

Nuclear Event – Undefined Alert, Airspace Intrusion: Doel Nuclear Power Plant, Belgium


Technological Hazard – Nuclear Event

Doel 4

Doel 4 nuclear power plant

Europe – Belgium | Province of Flemish, Doel, Doel Nuclear Power Plant 
Location: 51°19’29.0″N 4°15’31.0″E
Damage Level: Unknown
Affect: Unknown

Non-categorized event in Belgium on Sunday, 21 December, 2014 at 06:21 (06:21 AM) UTC.

A mystery drone was spotted flying over a Belgium nuclear facility on Saturday, local authorities said, a day after one of the plant’s reactors came back on line after a four-month closure caused by sabotage. The mystery appearance by an unmanned aircraft, on which Belgian authorities refused to provide much detail, resembles a spate of similar drone sightings over nuclear plants in neighbouring France this autumn. Around 20 unidentified drones have been spotted over nuclear plants since October throughout France. “We can confirm that the East Flanders prosecutor’s office has opened an investigation into a drone flight over the Doel nuclear plant,” a spokesman for the investigation told Belga news agency. “We will not provide further information for the time being,” the spokesman added, hours after the plant’s operator, GDF-Suez unit Electrabel, first disclosed the incident, which took place early Saturday. The imposing Doel nuclear site sits on a riverbank near the North Sea about 25 kilometres (15 miles) north of Antwerp. It holds four of Belgium’s seven reactors. One of those reactors, Doel 4, was shut urgently in August after a leak, caused by tampering, gushed out 65,000 litres of oil lubricant. A steam turbine weighing 1,700 tonnes was severely damaged by the loss of lubricant, requiring a 30-million-euro ($37-million) repair job that was carried out in Germany. Belgian prosecutors have refused to confirm the sabotage as an act of terrorism, without excluding it either. Two other Belgian reactors still remain shut, both due to cracks in their reactor containment vessels. To face a potential shortfall in power, Belgium’s government on Thursday said plans to close the Doel site’s two oldest reactors, both nearly four decades old, would be suspended. The Doel 1 and 2 reactors were due to be the first to be shut as part of Belgium’s planned phase out of nuclear power by 2025, but the government said it would seek to keep them operating. Nuclear plants account for 55 percent of Belgium’s power generation, and the loss of over half of the country’s nuclear power has caused concerns of a shortage or even a blackout. Regulators have put in place special measures to help meet Belgium’s needs this winter.

Hypocrisy gone wild


It has been 50 years since the Civil Rights acts of the ‘60’s were enacted and the change has badly gone in reverse. Why is that?

Open Letter: Sharpton, Poverty Posse Fails to Inform Minorities of Choice

by Wayne Dupree

Dear Al Sharpton, (owing the IRS millions in back taxes, and being so highly thought of by the president) my brother,

Many black Americans would like to thank you for raising awareness about issues of race and prejudice, and the challenges they bring to our culture. So, if you don’t mind, let’s finish this conversation by addressing the hard issues about race that have been avoided for far too long.

As a black brother and “leader,” I’m surprised you haven’t already addressed these issues, but you’re in good company because the deniers also include the other members of your #PovertyPosse: Jesse Jackson, the NAACP, the Democratic Party, Louis Farrakhan, the Pink Panther Party and the Black Clergy. It’s stunning to me and other black brothers and sisters that you all are unwilling to give the rest of our “flock” this information. They deserve no less, for they are able and willing to understand the negative implications of victimization and hate-driven roots for progressing our cause.

We can expect to not hear this conversation from the mainstream media—but from “leaders” such as yourself, who are driving the protests around the country like you are part of the Indy 500? To not hear it from you is incomprehensible and reprehensible. This is why most everyone believes you and your “Poverty Posse” have an agenda to keep minorities believing that oppression is the only life they will ever know. It’s merely the lifeblood that progresses your own cause.

You build your reputations on the backs of blacks.

You have failed to convey to our black community the other side of the story: the Truth:

The Truth is we all have the freedom to make our own choices, no matter what our race or nationality.

The Truth is we also have a choice to try and change our behavior and others’ perceptions of us, no matter our skin color.

The Truth is: Behavior—both good and bad—is driven by personal choice. This personal choice not only defines judgment and perception but also fuels prejudice.

This is a reality for all races, nationalities, cultures and skin colors. In your pithy “Black Lives Matter” national movement across the country, you ignore that All American Lives Matter. We thought that was the Utopia you and your liberal ilk continue to seek, yet you continue to refrain from actually practicing it. Like it or not, prejudice hits everyone, not just blacks. In all cases, there is no denying that perceptions leading to prejudice are sometimes inaccurate and often unfair. There is also no denying that it happens to all ethnicities, and even from blacks toward whites.

We all have the choice to change perceptions as best as we can. The incidents that led to your “movement”were inevitably caused by an arrogance to defy the law. How can you not include this talking point in your “movement?” To deny this fact is to, well, deny reality itself. What you are doing for minorities, as their self-appointed messiah, is fail them. And we see where you go wrong.

As Americans, we all freely choose whether to have children, with whomever we want, and whenever we want. As Americans, we can choose whether or not raise our children right or let them live on the street. As Americans,we choose whether to teach our children right from wrong, love them, abandon them or abuse them, make excuses for them or teach them how to accept responsibility. The world is filled with choices and your continued plan to shut down one side of the conversation, or demonize it, places you in the contemptible position of ruining this great country, and all the freedoms and liberties we all currently enjoy.

Any of us, at any given time, choose when, where, and how to make excuses. No matter our race, skin color or nationality, we all have the right to choose between assuming accountability or making excuses. You see, it’s not all about you and your “race.”

Many Americans are waking up to your 60’s mentality of universal blame without solutions. What you do for TV is no longer resonating in communities. Americans have grown weary of you and your finger-pointing. Americans, en masse are not to blame. They know this. Blacks know this.

When will you choose to care about your black brothers and sisters? When will you decide to quash the hate and point the finger at the brothers and sisters who perpetuate racism and prejudice through their own behavior? When will you promote the basic steps toward elevating blacks through earning respect and accepting accountability?

Likely never, for you’re too busy marching blindly. You’ll likely find another excuse and continue to separate Americans because without hate and divisiveness, you will lose your own identity—and your notoriety as a result.

As for myself and Americans like me, we will continue to call you out on every lie, every division you cause, and every false narrative you speak.

You will probably not read this but someone in your #PovertyPosse will.

Thanks for listening brother. Keep your eyes open as you march. Watch out for that cliff.
