A comment from esteemed blogger Daphne Anson citing two pieces about anti-Chinese sentiment in France prompted me to have a further look.

The Chinese demonstrators were demanding protection from “muggers who they say prey on them because they are seen as easy targets.” Chazan gives this fatal incident the passive treatment: “The death of a 49-year-old Chinese tailor after being badly beaten in a robbery earlier this month has lent new urgency to the long running complaint that Asi... more »

Voting Machine Caught Swapping Republican Ballot For Democrat

A voting machine has been caught on camera casting a ballot for a Democrat after the voter selected a Republican. Donald Trump thinks Hillary Clinton and the Democrats are going to steal the next election. “I’m afraid the election is going to be rigged, I have to be honest,” he told a campaign rally last week.

"The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation. What is called resignation is confirmed desperation. From the desperate city you go into the desperate country, and have to console yourself with the bravery of minks and muskrats. A stereotyped but unconscious despair is concealed even under what are called the games and amusements of mankind. There is no play in them, for this comes after work. But it is a characteristic of wisdom not to do desperate things." ~ Henry David Thoreau

The Illegal Migrant Invasion Of Europe: Important Video Exposes The Truth About This Invasion, And Who Exactly Is Behind It!

Again, with so much of the Jew spew media attention so focused on the circus of the American Presidential election campaign, the continuing attempts by the US/Israeli?NATO criminal cabal to have Syria destroyed, and of course the US propaganda fraud unfolding right now in their "attack" on Mosul, there is indeed so much else happening around the world...... We have all been watching so closely for the last 2 years the illegal migrant invasion of Europe, and how that invasion has indeed brought much of Europe to its knees and has indeed been destroying so much of European culture......more »

I have had my dance with Folly, nor do I shirk the blame; I have sipped the so-called Wine of Life and paid the price of shame; But I know that I shall find surcease, the rest my spirit craves, Where the rainbows play in the flying spray, 'Mid the keen salt kiss of the waves.

*"Thinking is man’s only basic virtue, from which all the others proceed. And his basic vice, the source of all his evils, is that nameless act which all of you practice, but struggle never to admit: the act of blanking out, the willful suspension of one’s consciousness, the refusal to think—not blindness, but the refusal to see; not ignorance, but the refusal to know. It is the act of unfocusing your mind and inducing an inner fog to escape the responsibility of judgment—on the unstated premise that a thing will not exist if only you refuse to identify it, that A will not be A... more »

Big Data cannot solve the paradox of the state

*The paradox of the state is that while it employs very smart people the state itself is dumb. It was Hayek who best explained why, suggests Andy Smarick in this guest post: it’s a problem of knowledge. It’s impossible to create and maintain well-functioning, domineering central authorities because they will always lack the capacity to collect, analyse, and act on the infinite and ever-changing body of relevant information—information that is inside each of our heads. The government’s decision to centralise doesn’t imply a solution to the problem of information being infin... more »

Labour *is* standing in the Richmond Park by-election. But should it? At the 2015 general election, Zac Goldsmith romped home with 58% of the vote. The Liberal Democrat runner up mustered 19% while Labour languished on 12%. The highest proportion we ever managed was at the 1997 high watermark, and then it was a measly twelve-and-a-half per cent.
