Women Fleeing Venezuela Sell Sex To Survive


CUCUTA, Colombia – Although the sun has barely risen, this border city with Venezuela is already bursting with chaos. Thousands upon thousands of Venezuelans pour into Colombia over the crowded cross-country bridge, their faces gaunt, carrying little more than a backpack. Rail-thin women cradle their tiny babies, and beg along the trash-strewn gutters. Teens hawk everything from cigarettes to sweets and water for small change.

The young, the old and the disabled cluster around the lone Western Union office – recently established to deal with the Venezuelan influx – in the hopes of receiving or sending a few dollars to send home. Without passports or work permits, the Venezuelans – many with university degrees or decent jobs in what was once the wealthiest nation in Latin America – are now resorting to whatever it takes to survive.

“Hair, looking for hair,” an older man choruses through the crowd, turning to a group of women clutching their small children. Another man nearby holds a sign, “we buy hair.” More and more girls and women are turning to the cut the make ends meet, and feed their families for a few days.

Fuck The Facebook: Min Aung Hlaing Uses Own Site

MAH is a devout Buddhist hated by OIC Muslims, UN, & EU.
Senior General Min Aung Hlaing the famous chief of Burmese Army and my dear childhood friend had been using Facebook effectively for many years till the bloody Facebook unfairly closed his account early this year due to the relentless pressure from the OIC-Muslims-controlled UN, and EU.

Since then I’ve been wondering what his response would be? Ban the Facebook, or hack the Facebook since he has the whole Russian-trained Cyber Warrior Team equipped with latest Chinese softwares and hardware from Huawei and ZTE! But as a very successful strategy-driven combat warrior he chooses the best available and cheapest option, starting his own WWW site, https://www.seniorgeneralminaunghlaing.com.mm, bravo.

I didn't even know the existence of his site till one Indian naval officer I know for many years when I was living in New York City sent me an email of Burma Navy 71st Anniversary news from his site this morning.

Moroccan Muslims Raped & Beheaded Two Tourists

 (Staff articles from The SUN UK, BNI, & JIHAD WATCH in December 2018.)

Maren Ueland was gang-raped &
Beheaded & her beheading video
was sent to her mother.
MOUNTAIN SLAUGHTER: Two young Scandinavian female backpackers found ‘raped & decapitated’ at popular tourist hiking trail in Morocco.

The Danish and Norwegian victims, who were students in their 20s, were discovered by other tourists near the foot of North Africa's highest peak, Mount Toubkad with what police say was 'evidence of violence on their necks' while unverified local reports say they had been raped and decapitated. THREE men have been arrested after two female backpackers were found with severe neck injuries in their tent at a popular trekking spot in Morocco.

The tourists from Denmark and Norway, who were in their twenties, were discovered yesterday near the village of Imlil in the High Atlas mountain range where they had set up their tent. Louisa Jespersen and her friend Maren Ueland had been camping when they were horribly attacked.

Reliving 1973 Kachin Christmas Eve in New York City

(Re-post of my "Reliving 1973 Kachin Christmas Eve in New York City" from 2011.)

New York City's Skyline.
The Big Apple or the New York City is a wholesomely overwhelming town for a simple jungle boy like me. Especially the enormous Romanesque facades of century old skyscrapers. And it hurts my neck so much that I’ve stopped trying to look up at their distinctive tops.

Like many other wide-eyed tourists from the Australian fringe of the mighty empire of USA I ended up wandering on the wide avenues leading to the Times Square brightly lit and filled to the rims by the excited crowd on the Christmas Eve.

I walked and walked and walked aimlessly on the near-zero freezing but still unbelievably crowded Fifth Avenue and ended up, fortunately of course as I wasn’t really looking for it, right in front of a beautifully grand Gothic-revival church. I walked in and realized this is the historic St.Patrick’s Cathedral   and the traditional Midnight Mass was just a few hours away.

Socialist Venezuela In Ruin: 1,400,000% Inflation


People of Oil-rich Venezuela are starving because of Socialism.
Inflation in the crisis-stricken country of Venezuela is on track to hit 1.4 million percent by the end of 2018, according to the latest report from the International Monetary Fund.

The report, entitled “Outlook on the World Economy,” predicts that inflation will reach 1.4 million by December 31, 400,000 percent higher than what they forecast in June this year and over a hundred times faster than the estimate of 13,000 percent in January.

Looking forward, the organization also believes that consumer prices will “increase by 10 million percent over the course of 2019,” explaining that “years of misguided policies coupled with a decline in production in the country’s vital oil industry to seventy-year lows have crashed the economy.”

The Opportunity Costs Of Democratic Socialists


Final outcomes of Socialism.
Coincident with the 200th anniversary of Karl Marx’s birth, socialism is making a comeback in American political discourse. Detailed policy proposals from self-declared socialists are gaining support in Congress and among much of the electorate. It is unclear, of course, exactly what a typical voter has in mind when he or she thinks of “socialism.”

But economists generally agree about how to define socialism, and they have devoted enormous time and resources to studying its costs and benefits. With an eye on this broad body of literature, this report discusses socialism’s historic visions and intents, its economic features, its impact on economic performance, and its relationship with recent policy proposals in the United States.

We find that historical proponents of socialist policies and those in the contemporary United States share some of their visions and intents. They both characterize the distribution of income in market economies as the unjust result of “exploitation,” which should be rectified by extensive state control.

Muslim Sisters: The Clit-less Congresswomen


For the first time in US political history, two Muslim women joined the ranks of the US Congress with Western and Arab media widely reporting on their win during the first midterm elections under US President Donald Trump. Ilhan Omar, a Democrat, is the first Somali American to serve in Congress and Michigan Democrat Rashida Tlaib is a Palestinian American.

However, the Democrats’ battle against the Republican control of the US Congress, led to an alliance with Political Islamist movements in order to restore their control on government, pushing Muslim candidates and women activists of immigrant minorities, onto the electoral scene.

Around 90 Muslim Americans, the record number supported by massive funding from the Muslim nations through CAIR and Muslim Brotherhood, were running for office in 2018 midterm elections. In Minnesota, Ilhan Omar became the first Somalian-American and one of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress.

Trump Taunts Macron As Yellow Vests Clash With Police


PARIS - President Trump taunted French President Emmanuel Macron as France was burning in the wake of violent protests across the country on Saturday where an army of Yellow Vests demanded the president’s head.

“Very sad day & night in Paris. Maybe it’s time to end the ridiculous and extremely expensive Paris Agreement and return money back to the people in the form of lower taxes?” Trump tweeted after tens of thousands of people across France went to the streets to protest Macron’s government. “The U.S. was way ahead of the curve on that and the only major country where emissions went down last year!” he added.

The latest data suggests that the U.S. was leading the way in cutting its CO2 emissions, though the United Kingdom and Japan, among the developed countries, also cut their emissions.

Macron Is Fucked: French Yellow Vest Revolution

(Staff articles from The SBS, BLOOMBERG, & IRISH TIMES in December 2018.)

The fuel tax rise is dead so why are the 'yellow vests' protests escalating in France? And how did protests against fuel tax hikes turn into a "rebellion" against President Emmanuel Macron in France?

They began as demonstrations against fuel tax hikes, but the French government's decision to scrap the planned rise has done little to quell the "yellow vest" demonstrations. Thousands of protesters gathered in Paris on Saturday chanting "Macron resign" and "president of the rich".

So how did the crisis balloon into a mass movement against the embattled 40-year-old president and his perceived pro-rich policies? The withdrawal of French President Emmanuel Macron from implementing the Polluting Fuels tax, had very little to no effect on calming the tense situation.

France Is Burning: Yellow Vest Revolution!


Bring back the guillotines!
France Is Burning! Thousands Riot as 89,000 Police Arrest Hundreds: What began as a mostly grassroots protest of the enraged working class is now far more than that. The barbarians have stormed the gate and taken the common man with them. Before we jump in with support, let’s remember how the first French Revolution went. It was nothing like ours despite what those who rewrite history like to say.

The days of guillotines are long gone but four have died and many have been injured as men 30 to 40 years of age march from their rural homes to storm Paris, burn some cars, vandalize the Arc de Triomphe with anti-government graffiti, and poke at and defile monuments while wearing Yellow Vests, Gilets Juanes in French.

It’s not only in Paris, but it’s also all over France for those who can’t make the trip. Across France, 89,000 police officers are on duty and armored vehicles are being deployed in the capital, Prime Minister Edouard Philippe announced.

Marine Le Pen On The Marrakesh Pact (Global Compact)


Marin Le Pen speaking about the Marrakesh Pact, November 27 2018: The video below contains the opening remarks made by Marine Le Pen on November 27 at a press conference about “The Marrakesh Pact, the Pandora’s Box of Migratory Submersion”.

The UN Global Compact will be signed next week in Marrakesh by an ever-decreasing number of countries. At this point it is essentially an agreement by Britain, France, Germany, Canada, the Netherlands, Sweden, and a few other European countries to take in any and all third-world migrants who want to enter.

Since the Schengen Agreement will allow those migrants to disperse to non-signatory European countries, the pact will have an effect on all of Western Europe. Mind you, the signatory countries are also the preferred destinations for migrants, generally speaking, so most of them will tend to stay in the Big Five.

Coup Saturday In Paris: Yellow Vest Revolution

 (Staff articles from The NATIONAL SENTINEL & The SBS in December 2018.)

The Yellow Vests Will Triumph.
France deploying 89,000 cops, security ahead suspected COUP attempt Saturday: A French newspaper is reporting that the so-called “Yellow Vest” demonstrators who have staged violent protests in Paris and around the country in opposition to the government’s imposition of massive fuel taxes related to universally-hated Paris Climate Accords could be preparing for a coup attempt on Saturday

As such, French authorities plan to deploy 8,000 police in Paris alone with another 80,000-plus riot police and gendarmes around the country, various reports have said. French intelligence services have reported to the Elysee Palace, the official residence of President Emannuel Macron, following “calls to kill” and “carry arms to attack” government officials, parliamentarians and police, according to Le Figaro.

“They are putschists. We are in a coup attempt,” said Le Figaro‘s sources. On Thursday, Yellow Vest leader Eric Drouet noted that “Saturday will be the final outcome. Saturday is the Elysee,” adding, “We all would like to go to the Elysee.” Le Figaro also reported that Saturday’s demonstrations may involve unprecedented levels of violence including “a hardcore radicalized” element from “both the extreme right and extreme left.”

Burmese Pent-up Anger Against Bengali-Muslims


West and aggressive Muslim nations must gauge pent-up anger against Rohingyas: Of late, Myanmar State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi has been a punching bag for all leaders from the West and the East, the Christian and the Muslims.

The US Vice President Mike Pence could not let go of such an opportunity in a bilateral meeting with her on the sidelines of the 33rd annual summit of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) in Singapore on November 14. The Myanmar leader rightly rebuffed criticism from Pence (and also other leaders) over her government’s treatment of ethnic Rohingya Muslims.

Pence was “anxious to hear about progress” in resolving the crisis stemming from a retaliatory military crackdown in Rakhine state that the United Nations (UN) has called ethnic cleansing.”The violence and persecution by military and vigilantes that resulted in driving 700,000 Rohingya to Bangladesh is without excuse,” Pence said and was eager to know how Myanmar will enable the Rohingya to voluntary return home.

Rich Lefties Making San Francisco The Poop Capital


A homeless man pooing in SF.
San Francisco's Wealthy Leftists Are Making Homelessness Worse: I recently had the opportunity to visit San Francisco for the first time. Coastal towns tend to be a bit more interesting in terms of cuisine (seafood being one of the more varied palate options) as well as architecture (steep hill structures are ever a testament to human ingenuity) and San Francisco scores high in both categories.

However one area where it currently scores quite low is in the aroma zone. At first I thought perhaps they had a very inefficient sewer system near the shoreline retail sector, but as we explored deeper toward the city center it became clear something was amiss. I learned shortly thereafter that San Francisco has a poop crisis.

To be blunt — people are literally crapping on the sidewalks. Not the tourists, mind you, but the local homeless population. The situation has come to a head (or to the head to employ a nautical metaphor) primarily as a result of progressive conservatism primed with the power of centralized (governmental) authority.

One Million+ Rohingyas Obtained Bangladeshi Passports


The large number of Rohingyas with Bangladeshi passports puts into focus the administrative weaknesses that allowed the Myanmar nationals to illegally obtain passports of another country.

Thousands of Rohingyas have used illegally obtained Bangladeshi passports to travel abroad for work. Although the government holds no data on the exact number of false passports in circulation, Expatriates Welfare Minister Nurul Islam said in April that about 250,000 Rohingyas had gone abroad with Bangladeshi passports.

The minister said Bangladeshi workers are facing an “image crisis” as a result. “The Rohingyas obtained passports by providing fake documents from local union council chairmen and other local government authorities,” he said. “Many of them are involved in criminal activities abroad.”

The large number of Rohingyas with Bangladeshi passports puts into focus the administrative weaknesses that allowed the Myanmar nationals to illegally obtain passports of another country. A local broker at Cox’s Bazar passport office told the Dhaka Tribune that an illegal passport costs between Tk60,000 and Tk100,000.
