      Do Believe that with what many European countries are not figuring out, there will be other countries in Europe following suit in some form in order to get rid of the Refugee Muslims.

      “President Donald Trump’s administration is cutting money used to promote Obamacare from $100 million to $10 million, …”

      How about cut the money to zero! Why would you need even $10 million to promote Obamacare since it is dying anyway?

        Because its the only choice many people have and they need to have access to it until it is replaced with something else, either at the state level, the federal level or the gov backs out of healthcare and their employer again offers health care. People need the info and assistance as long as it is the law of the land. Until Congress changes it, this is the law

    Gov. Abbott has declared this Sunday, Sept. 3, a Day of Prayer for Texans.

    Do any of the Democratic Politicians have any brains. Rep. Pramila Jayapal is saying “As an immigrant and someone who worked to help pass DACA, attacks on DREAMers are personal. Immigrants make our country strong”
    DACA was an executive order. Since when do executive orders get passed by congress.

    For anyone who wants to follow the meteorologist discussing IRMA, this is where to read the current model analysis:

    You’ll have to adjust the page numbers to keep at current, and be forewarned that when the topic gets too many pages, they will move to a “Part 2” thread, with a notice at the end of Part 1.

    tldr; ECMWF Model Predicting 180+ mph (Cat-5+2) 70% chance many Caribbean Islands horribly impacted next weekend; followed by 40% chance any place VA to ME hit hard. DC Swamp and Boston particularly targeted for possible major destruction.

    Found this Gem today. This is a press conference held today by the Border Control, announcing the 4 awarded prototype contracts for the construction of the wall, and extensively answering questions and talking about the purpose, the testing, etc. Notice the reporters are basically normal, rational people for the most part. I guess all the circus clowns are over at the other press room!

      It’s not just Dallas but in other parts of the nation as well. It happens ever time there are looming price increases. People immediately begin to top off on a regular basis. All it does is tend to create long lines and spot shortages.

      I’ll try posting the article from the above later.
      Wordpress is acting up. Maybe the story about middle-aged Italian bus-drivers getting beat up by packs of savage animals upsets its delicate constitution.

    They’re Here, You’re Kaffir — Get Used To It!

    Years ago, before the European “refugee” crisis really exploded, the phrase “deliberate population replacement” seemed a bit over the top. Yes, population replacement is indeed what’s happening — but how do we know it’s deliberate?

    Well, that was then, and this is now.

    It’s become clear that the “asylum” racket is a complete scam. Now that Chancellor Merkel and her eternal coalition are secure in their seat of permanent power, they’ve given up trying to keep the “refugee” scrim in place in front of what they’re doing. Everybody’s coming in, and no one will be leaving — Europeans just may as well get used to it.

    Egri Nök has translated two articles about new migration developments in Europe. Both were originally published at Vlad Tepes in a slightly different form.

    The first article concerns the recent announcement that — surprise! — rejected asylum seekers in Germany won’t really have to leave. They’ll get benefits and work permits, just like the actual “refugees”. It makes one wonder why they bother with the charade of an asylum application process — it would save a lot of time and administrative resources just to let them all in and immediately hand them their goodies.

    Oh well, now that they are here and we can’t or won’t send them away, we might as well give them work permits and federal funds
    An original translation from German daily newspaper Hamburger Abendblatt:

    Merkel and Scholz: Integrate Rejected Asylum Seekers

    I posted an earlier version of this piece the other day.
    “German Turks are so unhappy with the Bundestag’s recognition of the Armenian Genocide that they have formed their own political party to represent the interests of Muslims in Germany.”

    More notes from the diligent translator:
    A Vote for Germany’s Future

    […]The AD Democrats champion a communal right to vote for all foreign nationals and people without nationality who are of the necessary voting age, and who have been legally resident in Germany for a period no longer than a communal legislative period; independent of their nationality.

    Whoever feels that their opinion matters is already integrated. The communal right to vote must be granted to all people, to enable them to participate in the active forming of their direct environment.

    Excluding people from the right to vote is discrimination against their exercising their political rights. Due to demographic developments, a growth of the population that is not politically represented is to be expected in the coming years. Thus, in communities with a high proportion of foreigners, democracy-free areas will form. Foreigner Advisory Boards and Migrant Premiums alone cannot replace the active democratic process.

    …The AD Democrats also champion to grant families more political weight by giving the parents the right to vote for their underage children. This increased weight will mean that families will move into the center of the political processes, and family policies will automatically become more sustainable. Only someone has the vote can be sure to be acknowledged politically; especially children.…
