Murder in the Atlas Mountains

Original Article

Posted By: Pluperfect, 6/22/2019 4:51:12 AM

MARRAKESH, Morocco — Their screams must have carried for miles in the thin air of the Atlas Mountains, anguished sounds of a terrorist attack that no one was there to hear, see or stop. Maren Ueland, 28, and Louisa Jespersen, 24, Scandinavian students who revered the outdoors, were descending North Africa’s highest peak in December when they encountered four men searching for Westerners to kill. The men waited until after nightfall, then approached the women’s tent with knives and misplaced hopes of becoming Islamist heroes. They attacked Ueland, a Norwegian, and her Danish friend, Jespersen, in their sleeping bags, stabbed them until their bodies went limp

Article took forever to get through, and if you do manage to get through it, you'll find no surprises its from the left-wing Compost. Yes, its difficult to have sympathy for two Western women hiking alone in a relatively unstable muslim country. With no male companions nor guides in site, they supplied an easy target for the islamists. Nevertheless, the lefty Compost recounts the horrific events in a very 'matter-of-fact' tone, but saves its real anger and criticism for: those evil right wingers. Yes, somehow the commies at the Post decided the attackers were only misguided, but the real bad guys are the right wingers calling for revenge over this. One can only hope these delusional Westerners will learn that going to a muslim country for any reason is not a good idea, especially tourists. Save yourselves, save your families the pain of your deaths. There are far more beautiful (and safer) mountains to climb in Europe. But somehow, the naivete towards muzzies will not dissipate despite this horrific murder.

This is what thousands of years of inbreeding get you. Yes, Muslims do marry into their own families, it is permitted in the Koran and the Sura. The Muslim population is actually devolving, full of genetic idiots.

"Within days, the one-minute, 16-second recording spread rapidly across networks associated with the far-right and white-nationalist movements.".... "Right-wing activists also began promoting the video — or images from it — on their own platforms. Among the most prominent was “Resett,” a Norwegian website that is the country’s closest equivalent to Breitbart in the United States." This pretty well summarizes WaPo's gruesome story.

There are none so blind as those who will not see. In C. S. Lewis "the Final Battle", people who have turned their backs on God when faced with evil refuse to acknowledge it. When salvation presents itself they, in their blindness, refuse to accept and acknowledge it. I am reminded of this every time I see or hear some blind guide trying to excuse or equate two points of view, diametrically opposed as being the same. People who proclaim the truth about Islam, truth that history records and proves, are equal to those within Islam, admittedly a minority but a minority supported by a majority within Islam, who commit true acts of evil. Yes individuals in opposition to Islam occasionally resort to violence, and yes the majority of Islamists don't kill innocent women, consider though the announcements about western prostitutes by the Islamic State. How can you in the west blindly standby as your nations are infiltrated by a philosophic/theology that is counter to all that is good within the West.

From Souad Mekhennet’s Wiki page: Mekhennet was born in 1978, the daughter of a Turkish mother and a Moroccan father; she grew up principally in Germany, but spent some years of her childhood in Morocco.[1][2] She attended the Henri Nannen School for Journalism in Hamburg and the Johann-Wolfgang Goethe University in Frankfurt.[3] Since 9/11, Mekhennet has covered conflicts and terrorist attacks in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.[citation needed] She was one of two Times reporters who published the first story on Khaled el-Masri, a German citizen, who was detained, flown to Afghanistan, interrogated and allegedly tortured by the CIA for several months.

The article goes something like this. These wannabe virgin seekers are kinda bad cause they chopped off the heads of two woman who had the temerity to go on an adventure. One was alive when they did it. The other may have been unconscious, but I digress. The villain they continually refer to after describing these acts are those crazy right wingers who actually bring attention to this brutal crime. How dare they take advantage of this situation.

Here we are in the midst of a once-in-a-half-century pandemic, with the economy flattened, millions of people unemployed, and unrest on the streets of our cities. And President-elect Joe Biden says that one of his highest priorities as president will be to reenter the Paris climate accord. President Trump kept his "put America first" promise and pulled the United States out of this Obama-era treaty. Biden wants us back in. Why? Paris is an unmitigated failure. You don't have to take my word for it. National Geographic, a supporter of climate change action, recently ran the numbers and admitted in its recent headline: "Most countries aren't hitting 2030 climate goals."

Teachers unions have been instrumental in keeping American schools online during the pandemic. But some have escalated their positions on reopening to include an array of social justice demands. A set of demands from teachers unions in July, which addressed how to safely reopen schools amid a pandemic, was criticized by The Wall Street Journal editorial board as “political extortion.” The board argued that unions were taking advantage of a health crisis to advance their own ideological agendas and to eliminate competition from charter schools.

Why do we do this to ourselves every four years? We talk incessantly about the latest poll in Florida and Michigan and Pennsylvania and Arizona until we are blue in the face. Then they turn out to be wildly wrong. When will we ever learn? It reminds me of that old saying which I think was from Einstein, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.” Polling, at least the old-school style, is over. Done. I don’t need to go through a long list of reasons why nobody should take pollsters seriously anymore, but a few data points are instructive.
Implications of the Flynn Pardon 11 replies

President Trump granted a pardon to Michael Flynn, his former national-security adviser, today. Flynn had pled guilty to lying to FBI agents about conversations, during the 2016 transition, with the Russian ambassador about sanctions. Flynn’s pardon should bring to an end one gross violation of the Constitution’s separation of powers, even as it gives rise to groundless accusations of another. Although Flynn had pled guilty, the circumstances of the case had raised serious concerns about whether the government had proceeded properly. The FBI, for example, questioned Flynn even though it did not appear he had violated any law. In May, Attorney General William Barr ordered the case dropped.

The first Thanksgiving in the New World was celebrated in 1621, nearly a year after the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth. In 1789, George Washington became the first of many US presidents to formally proclaim a day of “public thanksgiving and prayer”: I do recommend and assign Thursday, the 26th day of November next, to be devoted by the people of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being who is the beneficent author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be; that we may then all unite in rendering unto Him

Minnesota is one of a number of states that are living under what amounts to martial law. Our proto-fascist dictator Tim Walz, in his latest edict, purports to ban traditional Thanksgiving get-togethers: Saturday, Nov. 21 through Friday, Dec. 18, Executive Order 20-99 requires all Minnesotans to: * Limit social gatherings to one household. * Not gather outside of your household. * Postpone all celebrations, events, receptions, and parties, including any social gatherings for weddings and funerals. So it is “illegal” for me to invite any of my four kids to Thanksgiving dinner.

Former President Barack Obama in an appearance on "The Breakfast Club" radio show on Wednesday said that attacks by Georgia Sen. Kelly Loeffler against her runoff opponent Raphael Warnock over his connection with Rev. Jeremiah Wright are "crazy stuff" as he defended Wright as a "supremely gifted preacher." Obama appeared on the popular radio show and podcast to promote his book "A Promised Land," which details much of his presidency, including his 2008 presidential campaign during which his connection to Wright became an issue. Wright has a history of controversial comments, including a sermon in which he said "God damn America" when referencing racial injustice.

The U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday night blocked New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo from reimposing strict attendance caps at worship services in areas hit hard by the novel coronavirus. The court ruled 5-4 to bar Cuomo from enforcing his Oct. 6 “Cluster Initiative” against houses of worship that sued to challenge the restrictions. The order was also the first in which Justice Amy Coney Barrett played a decisive role. Barrett, who was President Trump's third Supreme Court nominee, joined the court Oct. 27, after winning Senate confirmation following the Sept. 18 death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Anyone who goes to a DMV or applies for food stamps, Medicaid or other social services, or attends a public college will be automatically enrolled to vote.

I’m probably second to none in my dislike for Meghan Markle. There’s something unattractive about a mature woman marrying into the British Royal family with one of the world’s most expensive weddings, hanging out with the Queen, living in insane luxury…and then whining non-stop about the horror of her life. There’s something even less appealing when that woman accuses the Royal family of race hatred. And the problem is that, when it comes to that left-wing diva, Meghan Markle, it’s hard to believe most of what she says. After weeks of hype, CBS finally televised Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah.
