Did FBI know about Garland TX Jihad Attack

Way back in 2015 Pam Geller organized a 10th Anniversary "Draw Maohamed" Event in Garland TX and arraranged to have the winning artist Bosh Fawstin, Dutch MP Gert Wilders and AntiJihad Commentator Robert Spencer all attend.   Given that ALL of the Speakers are under full-time protective custody (well excpet for Spencer who has Private Secuirity)  there was some trepidation about if it would draw violent protestors so as a resonable precaution Geller had a privte Security Team in addition to coordinating with the local Police Department.

As it turned out 2 Jihadi Radicals decided to drive from Tennesse to extract violence on the attendees of the event.  Were it not for the quick action of the 2 Armed Private Security detail in the parking lot to neutralize the threats there could have been casulties and possibily serious deaths.

Here is a very good exchange about the Event between Geller and CNN after the incident.

Then yesterday it was revealled that the FBI had a far larger role in the lead-up to this incident than had been disclosed before.

It seems that the FBI had infiltrated the group these 2 men were involved with and in fact had DETAILED KNOWLEDGE of their plans but could not have disclosed the information as a warning without blowing their cover - so thejust let it take place without communicating to their superiors.  Or at least as far as we know now about this developing story.

U.S First Amendment under Attack

The antogonistic clashes between Patriot Trump supporters and Antifa at Berekerely have taken on at huge import over the last month and continue to grow.  I read tonite that Conservative Ann Coulter has issued a legal challenge to the University over their recent "disinvite" of the Young Republicans Event planned for April 27.  Her message "She is coming to exercise her 1st Amendment Rights".

Last week April 15 was the Patriot Day Talk organixed by the Pettibone gals and Lauren Southern

Here are some of the other videos I have found that make sense of the event.

We shall see how this turns out - but I believe that the Mayor and Police are all endorsing this violent behaviour - and predict it will not end well for the University.   In a way I believe that Ann Coulter is going to be the person who cracks this nut.

Fallout from Bernie Madoff Collapse

I just read here about a 4th suicide attributed (Charles Murphy - a massive Fund Manger in Greenwich CT) to the collapse of Bernie Madoff's massive Investment Fraud way back in 2008.

Contradiction in President Trump "Isolationist" Policy

Today on Drudge is an article about father of Navy SEAL killed in a massive screwed-up operation in Yeman on Jan 26 REFUSED to meet with President Trump.

I think Mr Bill Owens has a made a very good point - why did new President Trump allow this operation to go ahead given much of what he said on the Campaign.   This will hopefully allow some retrospection by the Administration.

I send my condolences to this man and his familiy over their son's death - which probablly should not have happened - however NEVER believe that Military Operations can take place with the risk of loss of life.

Proust: Rembrance of Things Past

National Post article by odd Tristan Hopper reported that a Laval University prof and specialist has discovered early and only known film footage of revered French Belle Epoque essayist Marcel Proust from 1901 (he died in 1922).  Proust of course penned "À la recherche du temps perdu" (aka in english "Remembrance of Things Past").

The End of Political Correctness?

"Political correctness isn’t a purely cultural phenomenon, a merely autonomous product of a free market of ideas in an era of enlightenment and progress. It is a multi-billion-dollar industry, funded, promoted, regulated and enforced by government. Without pro-active governments taking on Big Brother roles, political correctness would be an irrelevant factor in the economy and in our lives."
However this is unlikely to happen - especially as OUR Trudeau Government appears curiously concerned about the demise of the private media - accelerated by the State Propaganda Agency. I predict a move to "save" private media with 1) substantial CBC ad revenue and 2) Government "support" under claim of advancing Canadian Culture.

In America a similar kind of "post-truth" reality is dawning and many Red State voters are optimistic that under Trump control of government growth will be undertaken - hopefully beginning with Higher Education.

Finally - in memory of the passing of great Canadian Leonard Cohen. (and a more tuneful rendition)

U.S Election Race Most Bruising and Electric EVER?

Despite being reluctant to encourage hyperbole - I nonetheless suggest this is true.
At least it may be the most amazing U.S Election I have EVER witnessed in my brief lifetime.

The arrival of Donald J Trump into the GOP and sucesful challenge to the traditional party hiearchy.
The unfair battle between Hillary and (crazy commie) Bernie Saunders.
The legitimate questions about Clinton's and Trumps "fittness for office".
The FBI dismissing allegation against Clinton and then re-opening an investigation.
Wikileaks incredible disclosures about the Clinton Campaign actors and the shattering of MSM hegemony.

It has been just incredible to watch and very difficult to withstand.

So with this video of former Democrat stratgist - James Carville - excoriating a MSNBC anchor for what I thought were quite level-headed questions.  Clearly this stand in for Billy Bob Thorton is repeatedly shooting the messenger.

Satchell Paige: How to Keep Young

Now that the Cleveland Indians have beat the Blue Jays and are into the World Series (now 1-1 vs Chicago Cubs) - I was reminded of one of their most revered and ledgendary pitchers Satchell Paige - who joined the team from the Negro League in 1948* when they last won the World  Series (although they were in the Pennant races for 1995 and 1997).

So here were his oft repeated rules on "How to Keep Young".

Avoid fried meats which angry up the blood.
If you stomach disputes you, lie down and pacify it with cool thoughts.
Keep the juices flowing by jangling around gently as you move.
Go very light on the vices, such as carrying on in society. The social ramble ain't restful.
Avoid running at all times.
Don't look back. Something might be gaining on you.

But I like these other ones too.

Age is a case of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it don't matter.

I ain't ever had a job, I just always played baseball.

How old would you be if you didn't know how old you are?

My pitching philosophy is simple - keep the ball way from the bat.

If a man can beat you, walk him. 

Ain't no man can avoid being born average, but there ain't no man got to be common.

* Following Jackie Robinson the first to break the Colour Bar of Baseball in 1947.  Robinson had a strong connection to Canada as he was first tried out with the Broklyn Dodgers Farm Team - the Montreal Royals.  Paige himself was older and considered a bigger star player in the Negro Leagues - and supposedly had some hurt feelings about not being first but got over it as I guess he and Jackie were pals.

Kiwi Trevor Louden talks about "Enemies Within"

Trevor Louden is a New Zealander who has been warning Americans about the clear and present threat from a world-wide collection of Communists sympathizers - mostly masqueraging as "Social Democrats" in plain sight.

Mr. Louden has alot of useful material at his website and reminds me of various sympathizers within our own NDP Government in Alberta such as Rod Loyola - Edmonton Ellerslie.

Breibart died too young in 2012

Andrew Breitbart was the beginning of the Alt-Right media movement that grew up with the Tea Party.  Unfortunately the Tea Party found their chosen party - the GOP - was not that happy about having an engadged electrorate and they effetively stymied their efforts in Washington DC.   That was confirmed when the GOP suceeded in standing down Ron Paul in his bid to gain the Republican Nomination during the 2012 Primary - losing in a puzzling fashion to favoured insider Mitt Romney.  Romney lost and Obama was re-elected for a 2nd term.

Donald Trump paid attention to how the GOP machinery cheated Ron Paul of his rightful nomination thru a series of backroom deals and chicanery - and had the resources to counteract and neutralize it whne faced with much the same gameplan in his 2016 bid.

I think Andrew Brietbart - Ben Shapiro notwithstanding - would be onboard with Donald Trump.

There has been much speculation on the cause of Andrew Brietbart's death. 

It is also odd that Micheal Cormier, the Corner of Andrew Brietbart - also died under mysterious circumstances only a few days later on April 20, 2012. Then there was the death of novelist Tom Clancy Oct 1, 2013 under odd circumstances linked to Brietbart as it was alledged he was writing a book using information Brietbart had discovered about President Obama.
