Why “White Trash” Americans Are Flocking To Trump

When J.D. Vance was a boy, his beloved grandmother “Mamaw” told her boozer husband that if he ever came home drunk again, she’d kill him. When he did, and passed out on the couch, she got a gasoline can, poured fuel all over him and dropped a lit match on his chest. He survived with mild burns, and later quit drinking.

One time when J.D.’s mom took exception to something the boy said in the car, she hit the accelerator and sped up to 100 miles per hour, screaming that she was going to kill them both. When he jumped in the backseat hoping to protect himself from the impact, he recalls, she instead pulled the car over “to beat the s- -t out of me.” The evening concluded with Mom being hauled away in a police car.

One of J.D.’s stepdads, Bob, though kindhearted, had a bad case of “Mountain Dew mouth.” Half his teeth had fallen out, the other half were black, brown and misshapen. J.D. and his people are called rednecks, white trash, hillbillies. But Vance made it out of the holler, way out. The Marines led him to Ohio State, then Yale Law School and finally a job as a principal at a Silicon Valley investment firm. Looking back on his youth, and all he fled, yields a frank, unsentimental, harrowing memoir, “Hillbilly Elegy.” It’s a superb book given an extra layer of importance by its political reverberations: When Vance returns home these days, he sees yard after yard festooned with Trump signs.

Fireman Sam Treads Over Torn Koran Page

Fireman Sam is embroiled in an unlikely Islamophobia row after a fireman appeared to tread on a page from the Quran in an episode of the popular children’s programme. Channel 5 has pulled the offending show and dismissed it as an “unfortunate incident”, with a spokesperson from production firm HIT Entertainment apologising “sincerely” for any distress it may have caused.

The episode, appropriately titled “Troubled Waters”, was first broadcast in October 2014 but the scene has only just been drawn to public attention. It shows Elvis the fireman slip on a pile of papers which then fly into the air, “briefly depicting” a page from Islam’s main religious book.

The scene has not gone unnoticed by the Muslim community, with Miqdaad Versi, secretary-general of the Muslim Council, tweeting that he was “baffled” by the decision to feature the holy text.

Europe Especially France Is On Brink Of Civil War

French Intel Chief's Stunning Warning: Europe Is "On Brink Of Civil War" Due To Migrant Sex Attacks and relentless terrorist attacks.

In a shockingly non-politically-correct outburst, Patrick Calvar, chief of the Directorate General of Internal Security, told members of the French parliamentary commission that thanks to the increasing frequency of sexual assaults by islamic migrants, "Extremism is growing everywhere... We are on the brink of civil war."

As The Express reports, Calver said he feared an inevitable confrontation between the far right and Muslims poses more of a threat than terrorism. He said that the situation in France is on such a knife edge that it could just take one more major Islamist terror attack to lead to a huge right-wing backlash.

Muslims Driving Truck Through Crowd Killed 100+ In Nice

Nice, French Riviera: Gun and truck attack leaves at least 80 dead in Nice: Men, women and kids strewn across road after lorry speeds for a MILE through holiday crowd watching fireworks, before gunman opens fire.

At least 80 people including 10 children have been killed and more than 150 injured after a 25-tonne lorry mowed down crowds for more than a mile before the driver got out and sprayed fleeing revellers with bullets as terror struck Bastille Day celebrations on the French Riviera. One eyewitness described seeing 'bodies flying like bowling pins' and 'hearing noises, cries that I will never forget' as the horror unfolded on a busy promenade in the southern city of Nice at around 10.30pm local time last night.

Identity documents belonging to a 31-year-old French Tunisian Muslim man, Mohamad Lahouaiej Bouhlel, were later found in the bullet-riddled truck after the gunman at the wheel was shot dead by police marksmen, security sources said. The source added: 'The identification of the truck driver is still underway.' The recovered papers indicate the man is a resident of Nice.

Chicago Tribune Cartoon Roils American Muslims

OH, NOES! A cartoon in the Chicago Tribune has offended Muslims. Cartoonist allegedly has gone into hiding. (Not really) Muslim leaders in the Chicago area are calling foul on an editorial cartoon published by the Chicago Tribune.

Titled “De-evolution,” the image by Michael Ramirez parodied the iconic “March of Progress” illustration (below), which shows human evolution as a series of figures evolving from apelike ancestors to modern humans standing erect. Ramirez’s work reverses the order, starting with a modern human and ending with the most devolved figure: a man lying prostrate as if in prayer, labeled with the word “ISIS.”

“It makes it as if ISIS is just your average, mainstream Muslim who’s prostrating in prayer  – something we all do – as opposed to what is unique and problematic about them,” said Ahmed Rehab of designated terrorist group CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations).

Obama Fired Me For Calling Our Enemies Jihadis

(Retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, who is reportedly being vetted by Donald Trump as a potential running mate, was fired as head of the ­Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) in the winter of 2014 after three decades in the military. Here he tells the real story of his departure from his post and why America is not getting any closer to winning the war on terror.)

Two years ago, I was called into a meeting with the undersecretary of defense for intelligence and the director of national intelligence, and after some “niceties,” I was told by the USDI that I was being let go from DIA. It was definitely an uncomfortable moment (I suspect more for them than me).

I asked the DNI (Gen. James Clapper) if my leadership of the agency was in question and he said it was not; had it been, he said, they would have relieved me on the spot. I knew then it had more to do with the stand I took on radical Islamism and the expansion of al Qaeda and its associated movements. I felt the intel system was way too politicized, especially in the Defense Department.

After being fired, I left the meeting thinking, “Here we are in the middle of a war, I had a significant amount of combat experience (nearly five years) against this determined enemy on the battlefield and served at senior levels, and here it was, the bureaucracy was letting me go.” Amazing.

Is Trump’s VP The General Forced Out By Obama?

WASHINGTON — A top military adviser to Donald Trump is being vetted to be his running mate, The Post has learned. The General forced out by Obama is on Trump’s VP short list.

The outspoken and brash Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn — who was forced out of his post by the Obama administration in 2014 after pointing out the rising global jihadist threat — has already briefed the Republican presidential candidate on several occasions and is in close touch with high levels of Trump’s staff.

Flynn joins the ranks of GOP politicians being looked at for the high-profile pick, including former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence and Sen. Joni Ernst of Iowa. Trump spent the holiday weekend with two of the contenders.

Race War USA: BLM Snipers Killed 5 Police In Dallas

DALLAS SHOOTINGS: 'Snipers' kill five police officers in 'deadliest day for law enforcement since 9/11'. 11 police officers and two bystanders have been shot 'by snipers'. Five officers are dead. Snipers opened fire during a protest after the shootings of two black men.

Four BLM (Black Lives Matter Movement) gunmen have shot 11 police officers and two civilians, killing at least five officers during a Black Lives Matter protest in Dallas on Thursday night (local time), local police said.

The shootings have been described by a President Obama as a 'vicious, calculated and despicable attack on law enforcement'. According to statistics from the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, the attack is the deadliest for law enforcement since 9/11.

Obama’s Attachment To Islam Has Hurt USA

O’Reilly: Obama ‘Hurt the USA’ With His ‘Emotional Attachment to the Muslim World’. The Fox News Channel’s Bill O’Reilly argued President Obama’s “emotional attachment to the Muslim world has hurt the USA” during Wednesday’s “Talking Points” segment. O’Reilly said, “Many Americans, including this one, believe Barack Obama’s emotional attachment to the Muslim world has hurt the USA.”

He added, “The president does not define the terror issue clearly. Here’s why: Barack Obama’s father, who abandoned his family, was a Muslim who eventually turned atheist. Then his mother married another Muslim, moving young Barry Obama to Indonesia, where he was exposed to the Islamic world even though he did attend a Catholic school in first grade. According to his half-sister, Barack Obama attended his half-brother’s wedding in the early 1990s. Malik Obama was a Muslim. … What we can tell you with certainty is that Barack Obama has deep emotional ties to Islam.”

O’Reilly concluded Obama should “aggressively call out those who abuse the Muslim faith, who commit atrocities under a religious banner. He should make defeating the jihad a central issue and stop trying to diminish Islamic terrorism by avoiding the simple truth – radical Islam is a direct threat to the entire world. Whether they live in Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Syria or Africa, it is Islamic killers who are the central problem on this planet. President Obama should acknowledge that today and begin to correct his mistakes.”

Erdogan: Ottomans Were First To Walk On Moon

Istanbul| Ottomans were the first to walk on the surface of the moon, not Neil Armstrong, said Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, yesterday, during an iftar (fast-breaking) dinner hosted by the Turkish Green Crescent. Mr. Erdoğan claimed that Muslim explorers reached the Moon more than 300 years before the beginning of the Appolo program, vowing to build a mosque “in the crater” where they landed.

“It is alleged that the first man to walk on the moon was Neil Armstrong in 1969,” Erdoğan said. “In fact, Muslim space explorers reached our satellite 334 years before that, in 1635. Everyone knows the story of the famous aviator, Lagâri Hasan Çelebi, the “Ottoman Rocket Man”, who made the first successful manned rocket flight in 1633. What you might not know, is that he attempted to reach the moon, two years later, and could very well have succeeded!”

The story of Lagari Hasan Çelebi was purported by a famous 17th century Arab merchant and traveller, Mehmed Zilli, also known as Evliya Çelebi. In his famous travelog, he explains that Lagari Hasan Çelebi launched in a 7-winged rocket using 50 okka (63.5 kg or 140 lbs) of gunpowder. It took off from Sarayburnu, a site below the Topkapı Palace in Istanbul.

Anti-personnel Mines In The Central Park, NYC?

College kid’s foot ‘mutilated’ after freak explosion in Central Park. A college kid had his foot blown off in Central Park on Sunday after stepping on a homemade firecracker, officials said.

Connor Golden, 18, was climbing on rocks near East 60th Street and Fifth Avenue with two buddies — Thomas Hinds, 20, and Matthew Stabile, 18 — when he stepped on the object around 11 a.m., according to police.

“His foot was mutilated,” said Hinds, who spoke to The Post from the 19th Precinct on Sunday afternoon. “I was walking in front of him and suddenly heard this extremely loud explosion directly behind me. When I turned around, I saw Connor lying there, his foot completely gone. It was insane. He was moaning and saying, ‘Get help.’ ”

After the incident, the NYPD’s bomb squad was called in to confirm whether it was a firecracker that caused the explosion and not something more sinister. They determined that the blast was, in fact, the result of “explosive experimentation,” or the making of one’s own fireworks.

Brexit: Let’s Leave The United Nations Too

Let’s Take a Cue from Brexit and Leave the U.N. Instead of stamping out tyrants, the U.N. validates them. The U.K. has shown its contempt for anti-democratic international unions by leaving the EU. Let’s do the same and leave the U.N.

The U.N. is generally thought of as having evolved from the silly and impotent League of Nations, whose primary achievement was permitting — through naïveté, cowardice, and inaction — the Japanese invasion of China and the start of the Pacific half of the Second World War. Actually, the U.N.’s origins were nobler: It supplanted the League, but it began as an organization of the Allied powers against the Tripartite German–Italian–Japanese Axis.

The U.N.’s first communiqué was the 1942 “Declaration of United Nations,” wherein the Allied governments pledged that they, Being convinced that complete victory over their enemies is essential to defend life, liberty, independence and religious freedom, and to preserve human rights and justice in their own lands as well as in other lands, and that they are now engaged in a common struggle against savage and brutal forces seeking to subjugate the world, and DECLARE:

(1) Each Government pledges itself to employ its full resources, military or economic, against those members of the Tripartite Pact and its adherents with which such government is at war. 
(2) Each Government pledges itself to cooperate with the Governments signatory hereto and not to make a separate armistice or peace with the enemies.

Bangladesh: 20 Hostages Tortured And Hacked To Death

One terrorist suspect from horrible Dhaka attacks.
DHAKA: Militants killed 20 hostages, mostly foreigners, many of them hacked to death, after taking them hostage in a Bangladesh cafe overnight, an army spokesman said on Saturday.

“We've recovered 20 bodies. Most of them had been brutally hacked to death with sharp weapons,” Brigadier General Nayeem Ashfaq Chowdhury told reporters in Dhaka. The military said 20 hostages were killed during the 10-hour standoff, and a survivor's father said the attackers spared people who could recite verses from the Quran. Six gunmen were killed during the police operation and one was captured, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said in a TV broadcast.

Italy's foreign minister says the bodies of nine Italians have been identified in the Dhaka restaurant attack by extremists and one Italian citizen is unaccounted for. Foreign Minister Paolo Gentiloni says Saturday that the person isn't among the bodies identified in a military morgue in Dhaka and isn't among the 20 victims.

Bangladeshi Muslims Tortured & Killed 20 Foreigners

DHAKA, Bangladesh (AP) — Jihadist extremists hacked 20 people to death in a cafe in the Bangladeshi capital, Dhaka – sparing only those who could recite from the Koran – before they were gunned down by commandos.

Witnesses said seven Islamist radicals stormed the Holey Artisan bakery and cafe last night armed with assault weapons, pistols and ‘sharp objects’ before taking more than 30 people hostage.

They killed nine Italians, seven Japanese, an Indian, an American and two local men before elite commandos ended the 12-hour standoff by storming the cafe. Six of the hostage-takers were killed and one was arrested.

The hostages were given a test: recite verses from the Quran, or be punished, according to a witness. Those who passed were allowed to eat. Those who failed were tortured and slain by the Muslim terrorists.
