'Bikinis, not burkas': A growing number are far from feeling dismayed that Political Correctness is headed for history's scrapheap

Dismay as Germany's hard-right AfD marches into parliament







Alternative for Germany, which on Sunday became the first hard-right, openly anti-immigration party to enter Germany's national parliament since World War II, ran a provocative campaign with posters saying: "Stop Islamisation" (AFP Photo/Odd ANDERSEN)

Berlin (AFP) - The Alternative for Germany (AfD) on Sunday became the first hard-right, openly anti-immigration party to win dozens of seats in parliament since World War II, breaking a taboo despite mainstream politicians' calls to halt "the Nazis" in their tracks.

Exit polls credited the AfD with around 13 percent of the vote, making it the third biggest political force in Germany -- a stunning result for a party that was founded just four years ago.

"We will change this country," vowed Alexander Gauland, one of the party's top two candidates, pledging to "go after" Chancellor Angela Merkel's government.
It promised that it would make it a priority to launch a parliamentary probe against Merkel over her decision to let in more than one million asylum seekers since 2015.

After already winning seats in 13 of 16 state parliaments, the AfD will now send dozens of lawmakers to the Bundestag opposition benches, giving them a platform to spread their views, including challenging Germany's culture of atonement over World War II and the massacre of six million Jews and others in the Holocaust.
The AfD's feat sparked protests in several German cities, including hundreds of people in Berlin who shouted "Nazis out" in front of a club where the party was celebrating.

It was also condemned by Jewish groups and Germany's established political parties, but celebrated by Europe's far-right leaders like France's Marine Le Pen and the Netherlands' Geert Wilders.

World Jewish Congress President Ronald Lauder said "it is abhorrent that the AfD party, a disgraceful reactionary movement which recalls the worst of Germany's past and should be outlawed, now has the ability within the German parliament to promote its vile platform".

Josef Schuster, president of the Central Council of Jews in Germany, said that "unfortunately, our worst fears have come true: a party that tolerates far-right views in its ranks and incites hate against minorities in our country is today not only in almost all state parliaments but also represented in the Bundestag."
"I expect all our democratic forces to unveil the real face of the AfD and to expose the party's empty, populist promises," Schuster added, calling on mainstream parties to close ranks and kick the upstarts out in the next election.

Merkel acknowledged that the party's entry into parliament posed a "big new challenge" and vowed to "win back AfD voters", while the Social Democratic Party's leader Martin Schulz vowed that his party, in opposition, would act as a "bulwark against these enemies of democracy".

- 'Bikinis, not burkas' -

The AfD began life in 2013 as an anti-euro protest party but then shifted focus to capitalise on misgivings over the record migrant influx in Germany.

Its tone turned increasingly extreme in the last stretch of campaigning, with one of its two leading candidates saying Germany should be proud of its war veterans and claiming that terror was grounded in Islam.

Provocative posters declared "Burkas? We prefer bikinis" and "New Germans? Let's make them ourselves", featuring a pregnant white woman.

Its supporters heckled Merkel's rallies across the country, jeering, whistling and chanting "get lost" in attempts to drown her out.

Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel, a Social Democrat, has warned that "for the first time since the end of the second World War, real Nazis will sit in the German parliament".

The AfD will be a pariah in parliament as all mainstream parties have ruled out working with it, but the populists could still be vocally disruptive from the opposition benches.

- 'Le Pen pales in comparison' -

Critics say widening social inequality is also playing into the hands of AfD populists, especially in the deindustrialised heartlands of the former communist east.

The party captured close to one in four votes in the east, where it was the second strongest party.

Thorsten Benner, head of the Global Public Policy Institute in Berlin, said the AfD's rise shows that "our population is no more virtuous than the French population," and that "even Le Pen pales in comparison".

The AfD "will challenge key themes" in parliament, he said, pointing to Germany's culture of wartime remembrance and debate on cultural identity.

Gauland recently called for Germans to stop atoning for the past.

He also said integration commissioner Aydan Ozoguz should be "disposed of in Anatolia", suggesting she will never be German because of her Turkish origin.
The presence of the AfD "will very much change the tone of debate in parliament," Benner warned.

    COMMENTARY: Looming Obamagate will make Watergate look like a misdemeanor

    Barack Obama. (AP Photo/Luca Bruno)Barack Obama. (AP Photo/Luca Bruno)

    By Wayne Allyn Root Review-Journal
    September 23, 2017 - 9:00 pm

    An ancient Chinese philosopher once said, “May you live in interesting times.” Congratulations, we’ve hit the jackpot.

    We are in the beginning phase of Obamagate. This is our generation’s Watergate. Except far worse.


    Here’s a refresher course for those too young to remember. Watergate was the biggest scandal in modern political history. Republican President Richard Nixon desperately wanted to know what Democrats were planning for their 1972 presidential campaign against him. He ordered a team of trusted aides to spy on them. They literally broke into the offices of the Democrat National Committee inside the Watergate Building. That was the beginning of the end for Nixon.

    But today no one needs to physically break into an office to spy on a political rival. All you have to do is use the high-tech electronic power of government. A corrupt president can use the government to listen in on anyone, anytime.
    The media and liberal critics went ballistic when Donald Trump tweeted in March that Barack Obama spied on him. CNN tweeted, “Trump’s baseless wiretap claim” and, “Trump just flat-out lied about wiretapping.” Well guess who was right?

    Trump — again.

    According to multiple media reports out last week, officials in the Obama administration spied on the Trump campaign. They wiretapped Trump’s campaign manager Paul Manafort both before and after the election. It appears other top Trump aides were also wiretapped, as was Trump Tower.

    If these media reports are proven true, then the Obama administration was spying on the entire Trump campaign staff. Even if they were listening in on only Manafort, to whom do you think he was speaking? Trump and every high-ranking member of Trump’s campaign staff.

    Which means while government agents were supposedly listening for “criminal activity,” they just happened to hear every plan of the Trump campaign … they just happened to know what would be in Trump’s speeches … they knew his line of attack versus Hillary … they knew his debate prep … they knew everything Trump was planning before he did it. That’s some valuable inside information.

    Obama just happened to pick the perfect guy to spy on — if he wanted to fix the election for Hillary.

    It was the perfect crime — or so Obama thought. Because with all this inside information on the Trump campaign in the hands of Hillary and her campaign team, she couldn’t lose. And after her easy victory, Hillary would be in control of the Department of Justice. So who would ever investigate or prosecute?

    Except Trump ruined everything by winning a “fixed” election against all odds. And now Trump controls the DOJ. Trump can investigate and prosecute. Obamagate is directly in Trump’s crosshairs.

    Does this Obamagate gameplan sound familiar?

    These are the same people who successfully “fixed” the primaries for Hillary. They cheated Bernie Sanders. They even gave CNN’s presidential debate questions to Hillary in advance. These are the same people who used the IRS to destroy Obama’s leading media critics and slow tea party fundraising and activism to a trickle during the 2012 Obama re-election run. Isn’t that an attempt to “fix” the election?

    These are the same people caught spying on journalists of Fox News, The Associated Press and CBS’s Emmy Award-winning correspondent Sharyl Attkisson. These are the same people who unmasked Trump advisers and transition officials. Samantha Powers was unmasking names at a speed unheard of in political history.

    This is Obamagate. It makes Watergate look like child’s play. The real question is: What did Obama himself know and when did he know it?

    2. They Never Learn. Here We Go With Kushner’s Private Email Account
      JAZZ SHAWPosted at 9:21 am on September 25, 2017

      At first glance it doesn’t look likely to blow up into anything too big, but who knows these days?

      You would think that by this time we’d be done with discussions about administration officials using private email accounts, but you would sadly be incorrect. The Associated Press is reporting that White House adviser (and presidential son-in-law) Jared Kushner has fessed up to using his private email account for “government business” though it’s unclear as yet just how much it related to government communications.

      SEE ALSO: As the Kurds vote for independence, Turkey paves the way to invade

      President Donald Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, used his personal email account on dozens of occasions to communicate with colleagues in the White House, his lawyer said Sunday.

      Between January and August, Kushner either received or responded to fewer than 100 emails from White House officials from his private account, attorney Abbe Lowell said in a statement.

      “These usually forwarded news articles or political commentary and most often occurred when someone initiated the exchange by sending an email to his personal, rather than his White House, address,” Lowell said.

      The attorney said Kushner, a key aide to Trump, uses his White House address to discuss White House business and that any non-personal emails have been forwarded to his official account and preserved.

      So how serious is it? There’s going to be an investigation if the Democrats have anything to say about it, but if the story being presented by Kushner’s lawyer is accurate (and that’s a significant “if” in that sentence) they may not turn up much. In the early days of Kushner’s involvement as a White House adviser, people were still forwarding news articles articles to his old, personal account. Apparently he answered some of them. That’s a rookie mistake, but let’s keep in mind that Kushner absolutely was a political rookie at that point....

  8. Merkel Lands Fourth Term, But at What Cost?

    Angela Merkel will serve as Germany's chancellor for a fourth term, but Sunday's win comes at a high price. The right-wing populists are now the third-strongest party in parliament and her negotiations to create a new government are likely to be complicated.

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel

    September 25, 2017 12:02 AM

    Angela Merkel's election result four years ago was, to be sure, extraordinary. It was clear from the surveys that her conservatives wouldn't be able to repeat it. But a fall like this? Merkel's Christian Democratic Union (CDU) and its Bavarian sister party Christian Social Union (CSU) saw their joint result fall by more than eight percentage points -- their worst showing since 1949. During her first appearance after the election at her party's headquarters, the chancellor said she had, in fact, hoped for a somewhat better result. Those gathered at the headquarters dutifully chanted, "Angie, Angie."


    Then things grew quiet again. Nobody waved the German flag. It was a far cry from 2013, when CDU politicians broke out into a spontaneous karaoke session after the results were announced. This time, the prominent members of Merkel's party who had gathered behind her on the stage seemed sobered by the tepid showing.....

    The German election is simply one more example of the deepening political divide in the West. The center is shrinking as nut jobs on the right and the left are on the rise. Compromises positions no longer have a constituency. The extremes are in ascendance. Life sucks and then you die.

    Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) announced she could not back the measure authored by Republican Sens. Bill Cassidy (La.) and Lindsey O. Graham (S.C.), moments after a much-anticipated partial analysis of the measure by the Congressional Budget Office forecast that “millions” of Americans would lose coverage by 2026 if it was enacted.

    Two GOP senators — Rand Paul (Ky.) and John McCain (Ariz.) — had already come out against the bill, even after a new round of drafting, and Collins’ announcement means it lacks the votes to pass. Republicans hold a 52-to-48 advantage in the Senate and can lose only two votes from their party and still pass legislation with the help of a tiebreaking vote from Vice President Pence.

    A fourth Republican, Sen. Ted Cruz (Tex.), indicated through his aides Monday that he could not back the bill because it does not go far enough in repealing the 2010 law.

    Senate Finance Committee Chairman Orrin G. Hatch (R-Utah), who had been overseeing a raucous hearing on the proposal, said Monday evening that he would only allow one more round of questions given the bill’s predicament.

    “Let’s face it, we’re not getting anywhere,” he remarked...

  25. Men don't need a ho no mo' -

    Why Are Good Men So Hard To Find?

    Sexual liberation is a fabulous thing – in some ways. But it can also turn men into louts, because women don’t expect much in return for access. Today, most men can have all the sex they want for very little cost – no fancy dinner required. The irony, as Mr. Regnerus writes, is that today’s mating market is probably more dominated by men’s interests than ever before.

    When women complain that marriageable men (sober, steady good providers) are harder to find than ever, they may well be right. The marriage rate is falling steadily, especially among the lower middle class, while long-term stable marriage is increasingly a privilege reserved for the better off.

    A lot of women seem to have their act together these days. But a lot of men don’t.

    Ri told the General Assembly on Saturday that North Korea's recent "ICBM-mountable H-bomb test" was a key step to completing its nuclear force. He called it "a war deterrent for putting an end to nuclear threat of the U.S. and for preventing its military invasion."

    "Our ultimate goal is to establish the balance of power with the U.S.," he minister said.

    Williams said the 20,000 deaths per day estimate seems a realistic estimate particularly for "the very beginning of the war, particularly if there wasn't much preparation or warning time."

    Added Williams, "The scale of an artillery barrage [from the North] initially would be pretty massive. You'd be looking at several thousand rockets and artillery pieces being fired over the course of several hours."

    Experts add that the use of chemical or biological weapons by the North, though, could produce even heavier losses in South Korea.

    Frau Dummkopf not safe yet
    By Frank Friday

    The big initial winner in Sunday’s German election has to be Britain’s Theresa May. German voters gave a huge majority to the parties on the right, all of whom largely despise the EU and the shabby way their bureaucrats have treated Brexit. Look for a much easier process now for the Brits.

    The big losers were the socialist SDP party, with traditional European leftist parties becoming all but irrelevant in 21st-century politics, and individually, Frau Dummkopf, as I call her -- Angela Merkel. The big vote for the new conservative party, the Alternative for Deutschland, is almost completely a result of former Christian Democrats leaving their party for AfD in protest of her disastrous immigration and environmental policies. Before Merkel came along, Germany’s Christian Democrats were the one European party most like Ronald Reagan’s Republicans -- unashamedly pro-market, pro-defense, and pro-life. But Merkel has repeatedly turned her party toward idiotic leftist policy ideas and a lot of traditional conservatives have left.



    Merkel’s bizarre rise from East German apparatchik to CDU/CSU leader has never made any sense, and comparisons to The Manchurian Candidate are common. It’s like a duller, but even more cynical Al Gore somehow got the GOP nomination for the presidency.

    Diminished by the election results or not, and with the socialist SDP ruling out a coalition government, Merkel is supposed to be forming a new government with the Free Democrats and the Greens -- the AfD supposedly being too controversial to be asked to participate.

    But here’s the kicker: the leader of the most moderate faction of AfD, Frauke Petry, just announced she would be joining the Bundestag as an independent. By my count, if only about 30 of the 94 AfD deputies follow her into independence in the new Bundestag, there should be no stigma about them joining CDU/CSU and the FDP in forming an all-right government and ditching the Greens.

    This is no doubt being discussed behind closed doors in Berlin. If such a deal is made it would be yet another humiliation for Frau Dummkopf and she may just retire. Certainly, a lot of party leaders have already had to lay down the law to Merkel. In 2016, CSU chief Horst Seehofer had to threaten to end the Christian coalition and run CSU candidates outside Bavaria in order to stop Merkel’s open borders policies. Seeing the 2017 results, that German voters overwhelmingly don’t want any more Muslim immigrants or EU bureaucrats, even the most stubborn party bosses now may be ready to ease Merkel out.

    And there are plenty of attractive young conservative leaders to choose from – Horst Seehofer would be good, Julia Kloeckner would be even better, but then again, just about any Christian Democrat would be preferable to Merkel. Given the state of the world these days, it sure would be nice to have Germany back in the Western alliance on a full-time basis, something that has not been the case for two decades under the last German chancellors -- the paid Russian agent Gerhard Schroeder, or the lamentable Frau Dummkopf.

      The interesting part is the reason, Frau Petry, co-chairman of the party since 2015 and a bit of a nutjob in her own right, left the AfD along with her husband, a leader of the party in one western province, and four or five other influential people in the party. According to her, "an anarchic party" can't be successful.

    The Left’s (Brilliant) Scam Behind The NFL Anthem Protests
    JAZZ SHAWPosted at 10:41 am on September 26, 2017

    ....I think the light bulb finally went on when I was reading this piece on the subject from the Washington Post’s Jonathan Capehart. It wasn’t really so much what the author had to say because that was probably the fiftieth tirade of that sort I’d read in just the past week. No, it was more a matter of who was saying it. To his credit, Jonathan is honest enough to open the piece with a statement reminding people that he’s, “not much of a sports fan.” But that doesn’t begin to describe him. For those who ever watched Capehart fill in for Willie Geist on MSNBC’s old “Way Too Early” show, you’ll know what I mean. It became something of a running gag (which Jonathan engaged in with a great sense of humor) to watch him attempt to read the teleprompter on Monday morning and describe what had happened around the NFL the day before. Frequently he had to be rescued by Bill Karins, jumping in to offer some commentary from the perspective of somebody who had actually seen the game and knew how football worked. (Keep in mind that Bill is the meteorologist, not the sports analyst, although he did compete in several sports in school.)

    With that complete lack of engagement in professional football, why would Jonathan and so many of his progressive colleagues be so completely driven to support and gin up protests taking place on the gridiron? Why did they suddenly care so much about the intersection of racial identity politics and football?

    The answer is that they don’t. This has little or nothing to do with police shootings, racial profiling or any of the rest of it. What we’re seeing is an almost brilliant and concerted effort to damage, if not eliminate, the National Football League.

    Why? Because the activist Left has despised the NFL for years. They hate everything about it. It’s a game filled with big, tough, manly men engaging in the closest thing to warfare you can manage without guns. It’s a game rife with symbolism and, yes… nationalism. Even people who would never buy an album from a country singer could feel their blood heating up when Hank Williams used to sing, Are you Ready for Some Football. The military loves football and they fly jets over the stadiums in formation and send our nation’s finest out to pay tribute. And it’s not just the military. Our police and other first responders are frequently called out for honors at the games. Everything about it screams of apple pie, fireworks and patriotism. (Or, if you prefer, God, guns and flags.) And the activist Left hates it. Probably the only sporting event they despise more is NASCAR.

    And this isn’t the first ginned up attack on the NFL that the Left has orchestrated....

    Imposing Sanctions on Venezuela Will Only Make Things Worse
    By Spencer P. Morrison

    The Trump administration is considering imposing sanctions on Venezuela by blocking their oil from U.S. ports. Likewise, UN ambassador Nikki Haley criticized the regime of Nicolas Maduro, and confirmed that oil sanctions “are not off the table.” This is tactical escalation: last month President Trump advocated for a more finely-targeted approach by limiting Venezuela’s access to American financial institutions, now oil is in the crosshairs. This is regrettable: sanctions on Venezuelan oil will likely do more harm than good, and will punish the wrong people.

    To be clear: Venezuela is a horrible place to live, and the government is solely to blame. Their corruption, incompetence, and ideological fervor has transformed South America’s richest economy into a poverty-stricken backwater. Against all the odds, the socialist government has managed to create starvation in a land of rich soils and year-round growing seasons- -people are literally breaking into zoos to eating zebras to survive. Likewise, they have impoverished a nation that sits on the world’s largest oil reserves: not even Saudi Arabia’s brutal despots are this foolish.


    Nevertheless, imposing sanctions on Venezuelan oil is a bad idea. The main reason for this is that sanctions are generally ineffective if imposed on fungible goods, meaning that said goods are completely interchangeable on international markets. Oil is a fungible good. Therefore, apart from the initial logistical disruption, boycotting Venezuelan oil will likely have little impact on their exports -- Venezuela will simply sell more to Europe, China, and South America, while we buy more from Saudi Arabia. Remember, Europeans do not condemn Venezuela’s socialist dictatorship, and China is actively courting South Americans as allies and trading partners. Without Europe and China on-board, an oil embargo will have little chance at succeeding.

    For the sake of argument, assume the sanctions are effective, and Venezuela’s economy is completely ruined by America’s import ban. Would it matter? Venezuela’s ruling class is insulated from the general population, and cares little about their wellbeing. The fact is that most autocrats would rather let millions starve to death than relinquish their power -- we have seen this before in North Korea, Cuba, and the USSR. Venezuela is no different: brutal street battles have been fought, people are starving, and still the government continues trying to manifest its socialist utopia. Sanctioning Venezuelan oil will not impact the government aristocracy, it will simply impoverish ordinary people.

    Many historical examples prove this point. Recall how our sanctions on Syria caused starvation, and contributed to the rise of ISIS, but had literally zero impact on the welfare of Bashar al-Assad, or the rest of the ruling elite. Sanctions made Syria poorer, not its ruling class. The same was true in Cuba and Iran. Worth reading is this report from the Foundation for Economic Education: it looks at the impact of sanctions in the Balkans, and finds that sanctions do not work, they just further concentrate power in the hands of the ruling class....

    Winner, 25, has been remanded in Lincoln County Law Enforcement Center in Georgia, after it was decided that she was too much of a flight risk to be allowed out on bail during her arraignment on June 9…

  53. Funding to extend the wall beyond its distance of 654 miles (1,046 kilometers) is in doubt. Democrats have balked at Trump's $1.6 billion request to replace 14 miles (22 kilometers) in San Diego and build 60 miles (96 kilometers) in Texas' Rio Grande Valley, the busiest corridor for illegal crossings.

    Caddell Construction Co. of Montgomery, Alabama, and W.G. Yates & Sons Construction Co. of Philadelphia, Mississippi, were awarded contracts to build one wall of concrete and one of other materials.

    Other contracts for concrete prototypes went to Fisher Sand & Gravel Co. of Tempe, Arizona, and Texas Sterling Construction Co. of Houston. Contracts for prototypes of other materials were awarded to KWR Construction Inc. of Sierra Vista, Arizona, and ELTA North America Inc. of Annapolis Junction, Maryland.
