Donald Trump and the Executive Pandora's Box

From The Hill

Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump on Thursday vowed to issue an executive order to mandate the death penalty for anyone who kills a police officer. 
“One of the first things I’d do in terms of executive order, if I win, will be to sign a strong, strong statement that would go out to the country, out to the world, anybody killing a police man, a police woman, a police officer, anybody killing a police officer, the death penalty is going to happen,” he said.
“We can’t let this go,” he added, speaking to a New Hampshire crowd alongside the New England Police Benevolent Association, shortly after the group voted to endorse Trump.
The outspoken businessman referenced the 2014 shooting of two New York City police officers in their squad car, which prompted significant outcry from some conservatives accusing President Obama of fostering resentment against police officers.

I get that Donald Trump does not seem like a typical Establishment Republican, but he has a bad habit of saying what people want to hear but not offering much beyond that.

Legally, executive orders can only apply to direct executive agencies on implementing congressionally approved legislation. Murder of anyone is already illegal, with premeditation often carrying capital punishment as a penalty, but this is ultimately a state issue. The executive pandora's box was open long before Hussein, however just because the people's favorite leader uses it (or promises to) does not make it right.

IDF Girls: Who Doesn't Love Them?

Apparently, even the Iranians love them :)



To be fair, it could be one of the younger Iranians who don't support the mullahs or Sharia Law. Still.. :)

College Kids See Confederate Flag, Get Counsiling


From Breitbart

University students in Massachusetts who were upset by an image of a Confederate flag sticker on another student’s laptop were offered counseling services at Framingham State University.

The offer came after the university’s “chief diversity and inclusion officer,” Sean Huddleston, described the display of the small Confederate flag sticker as a “bias incident.”
According to Metrowest Daily News, students filed two “bias reports” within the past month as a result of a student displaying the flag in some way. The most recent bias incident – reported on November 19 – was a report of a student having seen a Confederate flag sticker on another student’s laptop.
In an email to students, Huddleston did not declare a ban on displaying the flag, but claimed that it upsets some students.
MRCTV obtained the email in which Huddleston wrote:
A student reported a bias incident today, in which the image of the Confederate flag was displayed on a laptop. Many of you may be aware that last month we received a Bias Incident involving two other students for a similar issue. Although related in nature, the two incidents involve separate parties.
The FSU Bias Protocol and Response Team has been made aware of the incident, and will meet to determine any measures that may be needed to respond to the incident. Our primary goal continues to be to expeditiously address and resolve incidents of bias that impede our progress toward a welcoming and inclusive campus community.
“Many see the Confederate flag as an inflammatory symbol of oppression and constant reminder of a dark period in the history of the United States in which slavery was a legal,” Huddleston continued, while “Others may simply view this flag as a symbol of shared southern heritage and in memory of the Civil War.”
Huddleston said the flag and other symbols “are not condoned by Framingham State University, as they violate the core values of our institution and not considered consistent with our desire to maintain a safe, respectful and welcoming campus community for all.”

"Bias Reports," "Bias Incident," and "Bias Protocol and Response Team" all sound like villains from a dystopian cyberpunk novel. Considering the "offenses" that justify the existence of any speech policing agency, we live in a parody, one that even Mel Brooks could not possibly imagine.

These pansies will not enjoy the real world. Unfortunately, they can vote.

Heavy Metal Monday: Bright Lights, Thrash City



The San Francisco Bay Area is known for a lot of things. Berkley and its university - today known for being a center of campus communism - was once a center for science and innovation, contributing to the Manhattan Project and nuclear research after the war. The hippy movement originated here and Santa Clara Valley got the informal name "Silicon Valley" during the technological boom in the 1970s. Today, it is one of the most politically correct areas on the planet.




Even here, subversion lurks just below the surface, in the form of Thrash Metal. With a culture focused on conforming and censoring the world's problems away, the Metal scene focused on lyrical themes of violence, warfare, tyranny and rebellion, with even faster tempo and harsher lyrics than traditional Thrash Metal. This distinct style has become known as Bay Area Thrash Metal.

College Safe Space: No Adults Allowed (literally!)

From Breitbart

On Friday, students occupying the administration building at Occidental College ejected Breitbart News’ Adelle Nazarian from their “safe space,” saying they felt “threatened” by her presence and referring to her as “an adult in a student-occupied space.”

“We’re requesting that you respect the fact that this is a community-owned space by students,” one of the male students said. He said there was “an issue of safety” as a result of Nazarian’s “adult presence,” which supposedly posed a direct threat to the occupying students’ well-being.
Nazarian recorded the incident. The audio is below (language warning). 
https://soundcloud.com/breitbart/radical-students-kick-breitbart-news-reporter-out-of-occidental-college-protest
The episode recalls the classic quote by New Left activist Jack Weinberg, veteran of the UC Berkeley Free Speech Movement of 1964, who told the San Francisco Chronicle: “We have a saying in the movement that we don’t trust anybody over 30.”

Supposed adults, who don't consider themselves adults, feel threatened by the presence of adults. Um, yeah. Even Mel Brooks would not have imagined this, were he writing a parody of the country.

These graduates will be in for a nasty surprise when they try to get a job. Then again, Bernie Sanders is popular with the young and these pansies will vote for someone who promises to steal money from others to fund their laziness.

Heavy Metal Monday: Speed Demon


Cover Art for Painkiller by Judas Priest, revitalizing itself with the very Speed Metal that the band helped to spawn a decade earlier.

Introduction & Style

Speed Metal was one of the earliest offshoots of the NWOBHM movement, and is a direct technical evolution of the music style. This subgenre faster tempo than most other types of Heavy Metal, with more expressive vocals, but the vocals are still "clean" and the instrumentation is still more melodic than Thrash Metal, itself a derivative of Speed Metal.

Poland





From bloomberg

Poland’s new government won’t accept migrant quotas imposed by the European Union, as the terror attacks in France have exposed the weakness in the bloc, the nation’s future minister for European affairs said.

From Breitbart

The newly appointed Polish foreign minister has moved to forestall the inevitable hand-wringing over the Paris attacks, this morning claiming “crazed leftists” would blame the killings of over 120 civilians by Islamist terrorists on the West.

Speaking on Polish radio this morning, foreign minister-select Witold Waszczykowski who will take his post officially on Monday called Friday night’s terror attack “an attack on civilisation,” adding, “France is an icon of civilisation”.
The minister expressed that Islamic State terror was caused by half-hearted Western military campaigns which were enough to goad them into “civilisation war with the West”, but stopped short of full war, not enough to defeat the Caliphate.
Without naming any particular states, Mr. Waszczykowski also took aim at the countries who help fund Islamist terrorism. He said the West should: “exert enormous pressure on those countries that created the Islamic State, or which support it.

Shillon did exactly that, blaming the attacks on conservatives and calling for an end to free speech. The usual suspects also used the attacks to push gun control.

Poland has defended Europe from Jihad in the past.

Vive La France!



I don't know what else to say, other than that more Americans than you think sympathize and stand with you.
