Hot Time On Hot Planet

A requirement these days  to become a Republican is to make a formal pledge that  under no conditions will you ever admit there is such a thing as global warming. As part of that agreement it is required that under no condition will you ever admit to having talked with a creature who goes by the name of “scientist.” Another part of that agreement is not to examine any evidence concerning what actually is occurring on this planet and when pushed, just say, “The Bible ” does no mention global warming.

New figures indicate  that 13 of the 15 hottest years since records began being kept 150 years ago were found in the  years from 2000–2016. Stefan Rahmstarf, a scientist from the  Potsdam Institute for Climate Research states: “natural climate variations just can’t explain the observed recent global record, but man made global warming can.”

Danes Don’t Act Like Danes

The story of the Holocaust is replete with tales of horror, it was a time when people turned their backs on neighbors because they were Jewish. In thousands of examples, the average person gazed away when innocent people were loaded onto trains and sent to their deaths. But within this horror stood the example of the noble people of Denmark who gathered together in order to save the Jews of Denmark.

Fast forward seventy years until 2016. Denmark is the destination of thousands of Muslims fleeing death in the Middle East. A new law in Denmark requires each of these refugees to turn over to the Danish government any wealth they possess over the sum of $1100. This money will be used to care for refugees.

Oh, in fairness, the Danish government will allow refugees to keep anything that has sentimental value.

Refugees Seeking To Go From Germany

There are always found among people seeking peace and safety a group which is determined to make host nations question their presence. On New Year’s Eve in Cologne, Germany, groups of Muslim young men surrounded women, groped and harassed them, and, in some cases even assaulted young females.  It is now believed the men were Afghan refugees out for a good time which may wind up ensuring that other Afghan refugees never get an opportunity to live in Germany.

German police are now being charged with lax behavior for allowing this mayhem to occur in the heart of a German city. There are rumors that police even covered up the sexual assaults. As this moment, no one knows why they refused to intervene, let alone why they refused to tell the public about the assaults. Ah, once again, police come away with failure to behave as police!

Muslim Jerks

It was New Year’s eve and thousands were celebrating in the streets of Cologne and Hamburg in Germany when groups of men from Muslim countries in the Middle East decided to surround women and grope and steal their wallets of cell phones and even assault them in public. It is clear these offensive males were from Middle Eastern countries and they were engaged in public criminal acts. The result is damage to the prospects for refuge in Germany.

Chancellor Angela Merkel, who has stood solidly with the rights of refugees is shocked and now notes there might be a conflict between the “coexistence of cultures.” The pressure has now risen on her to take action. Those who suffer will be refugees seeking safety from the horror of war. Unfortunately, they must now confront the horror of their sons who decided to endanger the lives of Muslim refugees.

 

 

Enough Is Enough

The refugees continue to arrive, from Syria, from Afghanistan, from Africa, and cries in Europe grow louder and louder to refuse entry to those who flee from poverty, war, and hatred. One person in Europe has risen to meet the challenge-Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany. She insists that each European Union nation absorb some refugees. In other words, spread the mass of people around and ensure that no single nation is confronted with the need to do it all.

However, voices grow louder and louder, even in Germany. Right wing conservatives echo the words of Donald Trump to build walls blocking entry of those seeking some form of peace and security. The outlook for these refugees does not look bright. It is simply a matter of time before Merkel must bow to the voices of hate. Ironically, Germany, and other western European nations, NEED immigrants since their low birth rates require more young workers to handle increased old age pension payments.

Frankly, the situation does not bode well for those in pain and fear.

The Holocaust Ploy

It has now become the first word out of the mouth of those who defend Israel’s refusal to abide by international law–when unable to defend this violation–just shout the magic word–HOLOCAUST. Christoph Schult writing in Der Spiegel notes how the Jewish Lobby seeks to defend any actions of the Israel government by shouting–HOLOCAUST.  “The Jewish settlements on the West Bank do not contribute  in any way to Israel security. The greater the number of Israel settlers living on the West Bank, the more unlikely  it becomes that a two-state solution can be achieved.”

So, Europeans refuse to accept products grown on the West Bank and this is akin to Nazi actions against Jews in Germany. Europeans defend the rights of Palestinians and this is –step one on the road to the HOLOCAUST. Defenders of West Bank settlers have a right to their opinion, but opponents of these settlers are NOT NAZIS AND THIS IS NOT A STEP TOWARD THE HOLOCAUST!

Where To Invade?

The American people have been taught from day one of their lives they  live in an exceptional country which is completely different from all other nations of the world. They have been educated to believe no other nation in the world enjoys the freedoms and benefits that any American can obtain from the earliest moment of life in this great land. Michael Moore has a new film entitled, “Where To Invade.” In it he describes where America might invade in order to experience a better life than enjoyed here.

1. The American life experience is now twentieth in the world. Pick either of a dozen nations if you want to live longer.

2. Just about every west European nation offers low cost medical insurance.

3. Believe it or not but countries such as France or Italy make certain workers get paid vacations.

4. Believe it or not but Sweden or Denmark offer free college education.

5. Believe it or not, but Sweden welcomes Syrian immigrants as does Germany.

And, so on and so on.

A Nation Fearing Fear

I was born in the great Depression when one out of four people lacked a job. It was a time before Social Security, before unemployment insurance, before minimum wage laws and before the government provided assistance to children. I was a teen during World War II when in 1942 the Japanese navy had nine aircraft carriers and we had three. I lived when Germany had an army of eight million and they were the first to develop guided missiles and jet planes.

But, for some strange reason we did not have political leaders who nonstop warned us of dire things to occur. According to Republicans, America is “facing the worst threat to its survival in history.” ISIS has about sixty thousand fighters,  no planes, no aircraft carriers, no artillery, no guided missiles and certainly, no atomic bombs.

What has become of the American people who fought a terrible civil war and its leaders were convinced of victory? FACTS: Since 9/11  fewer than 200 Americans have been killed in this nation. Oh, over 300,000 have been killed by guns wielded by native born Christian Americans.

As President Franklin Roosevelt calmly told us: “You have nothing to fear but unreasonable fear.” There is NO threat to America –other than the one posed b God-fearing Christians who want to kill and kill–themselves!

How Long The Refugees?

They journey on foot, they journey using rubber boats, they journey in trucks while hidden in the back, sometimes they die in those trucks. They are the unwanted, they are the refugees who are wandering around Europe seeking a place of refuge. They are the people who frighten most Europeans because they desire to work, they desire to find a place where their children can actually go to schools without fear of being killed by bombs or nut cases dressed in black who chant death, death, death.

They are the refugees from Syria, from places in Africa, they are the modern wandering Jew. German Chancellor Angela Merkel has promised them a home in her land. We wonder how long this promise will be fulfilled. Already, she is hinting at restrictions, the voices of fear within her land grow louder. Frankly, there are just too many refugees and it is simply a matter of time before she must announce restrictions.

In modern times, the refugee is not a welcome person. Certainly, not when modern people fear terrorists or lack of work. The door will soon be shut.

Israel Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu has caused confusion and anger among Germans by his remarks the Holocaust was initiated due to the ideas of the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem. Yes, the Grand Mufti did meet Hitler once in November, 1941– by that time at least one million Jews had already been murdered in east Europe. Anyone who really believes that Adolf Hitler would take “advice” from an Arab Muslim really has no idea about Hitler. German Chancellor Angela Merkel responded to Bibi’s nonsense with a cool quiet anger. “We abide by our responsibility for the Shoah(Holocaust). This is taught in German schools for good reason. And, I don’t see any reason that we should change our view of history in any way, whatsoever.”

German correspondent Alan Posener in Die Welt. “By exculpating the Germans and incriminating a Muslim, he is hoping to win friends among European Islamophobes.”

Bibi, take a course on the Holocaust.
