Civil wars are horrendous and bloody affairs. That’s why we should avoid them. They happen when two sides cannot settle on who runs the country. When they can’t reconcile the matter through elections, the country falls apart. When one side does not accept the election results, we have a countdown to a civil war.
This is the thesis put forth by journalist Daniel Greenfield. It rings true on many levels. Continue reading

GERMANY NO-GO ZONES: Police afraid to go into lawless areas after open-door immigration
NO-GO ZONES are emerging throughout Germany as they have become “lawless” places where even POLICE are attacked as a result of mass migration, according to a report.
Gangs of men are preventing people from straying into once vibrant areas of the country for fear of violence, and abuse that even law enforcement has been unable to control.
There are as many as 40 places named in confidential police reports – despite repeated denials from officers – according to a report by US think-thank Gatestone Institute. Continue reading
Rise of the Superpresident
Bypassing the checks and balances imposed by America’s founders, the executive branch has come to new heights of power.
Historians may look back on Jan. 14, 2014, as a tipping point in American history. On that day, President Barack Obama urged his cabinet to help him identify ways to advance economic recovery by circumventing the legislature.
“We’re not just going to be waiting for legislation in order to make sure that we’re providing Americans the kind of help they need,” the president told reporters before his cabinet meeting. “I’ve got a pen, and I’ve got a phone. And I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions and administrative actions that move the ball forward in helping to make sure our kids are getting the best education possible, making sure that our businesses are getting the kind of support and help they need to grow and advance, to make sure that people are getting the skills that they need to get those jobs that our businesses are creating.”
No president since World War ii has openly justified executive overreach by saying that it was necessary to circumvent legislatures because they refused to do what he wanted!
War, a Mission of Generations
BERLIN (Own report) – Following last Friday’s terrorist attacks in Paris, leading German media have begun speaking of a new world war. A renowned daily, for example, wrote that “a third world war” is currently being forced upon “the entire planet,” warning that the war against IS “is not yet being waged with the intensity needed in a world war.” Other journals are calling for resolute action without “half-heartedness” or even “self-recrimination.” The fact that after 14 years of the “War on Terror,” terrorism is stronger than ever before and the Arab-Muslim world is in shambles is allegedly not the result of a misguided western policy. The West supposedly bears no responsibility for the fact that “processes of disintegration and decivilization” have begun within the “Muslim belt of crisis stretching from Pakistan to Morocco,” which has led to a “breakdown of civilization.” In addition to the continuation – and even expansion – of the policy of military intervention, various media are also calling for broadening domestic repression. In the case of a “terror threat,” the Bundeswehr should take on the task of protecting endangered streets. Among Germany’s main national media organs, only one renowned business journal is not participating in this comprehensive orchestration of public opinion and preparation for a “world war.” Military escalation “does not bring peace,” it only “spawns suicide bombers,” warns its chief editor and calls for finally searching for alternatives.

European ‘No-Go’ Zones: Fact or Fiction?
The jihadist attack on the Paris offices of Charlie Hebdo, a French magazine known for lampooning Islam, has cast a spotlight on so-called no-go zones in France and other European countries.
No-go zones are Muslim-dominated neighborhoods that are largely off limits to non-Muslims due to a variety of factors, including the lawlessness and insecurity that pervades a great number of these areas. Host-country authorities have effectively lost control over many no-go zones and are often unable or unwilling to provide even basic public aid, such as police, fire fighting and ambulance services, out of fear of being attacked by Muslim youth.
Muslim enclaves in European cities are also breeding grounds for Islamic radicalism and pose a significant threat to Western security. Continue reading
SAVAGE: ‘Putin just did one thing I agree with 100%’
From time to time, the Soviet Union is also a nation of laws. Even if it is a country ran by a highly corrupt intelligence agency, Mr. Savage has a point.
While performing in Russia, pop star Madonna voiced her support for three “performance artists” who are in jail for trashing an Orthodox church building.
“This is not about free speech,” Savage said after praising Putin’s crackdown on these criminals. “Either you have a society of laws, or you have lawlessness.”
“Madonna went to Russia to give a concert,” Savage explained. “The stoners in Russia are no different than the stoners everywhere else,” adding:
You’re allowed to go see an aging grandmother cavorting on the stage.
So while she’s there, Madonna calls for the release of three gangster women in Russia.
I call them gangster women because you won’t believe what they did. The media here made you think they were just punk rockers who were arrested by Putin for being wild and crazy.
But no, that’s not what happened.
They went to the main Russian Orthodox church, stormed the pulpit, performed obscene acts and screamed that the Orthodox Church is too closely tied to Putin.
So Putin had them arrested, and I agree with him 100 percent.
There’s a certain point at which society breaks down unless you control the vermin: the vermin drug addicts, the vermin anarchists and so on. We’ve seen that in our own country.
Russian politicians are not constrained like our petty bureaucrat politicians are.
The deputy prime minister got so mad at Madonna that he said, “Every ex-wh*** tends to lecture everybody with age, especially during world tours and concerts. Either take off the cross or put on your panties.”
These so-called punk rocker performances offended the great majority of the Russian people who belong to the Orthodox Church. Their trial is certainly not about free speech.
Either you have a society of laws, or you have lawlessness.
