What’s behind the spike in terrorist attacks in Europe?

This kind of distorted reporting is why the mainstream media shouldn’t be trusted by anyone with a lick of sense…

Dina tweeted this article from the UK Spectator about the recent spike in terrorist attacks in Europe.

It says:

It is now a fortnight since Mohammed Lahouaiej-Bouhlel shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ and ploughed a truck along the Nice seafront, killing 84 people. The following Monday Mohammed Riyad, who said he was from Afghanistan but almost certainly came from Pakistan, screamed ‘Allahu Akbar’ while hacking with an axe at his fellow passengers on a Bavarian train. The next day another Mohammed, this time Mohamed Boufarkouch, shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ and stabbed a Frenchwoman and her three daughters (aged eight, 12 and 14) near Montpelier. Mixing things up a little, that Friday’s shooter in Munich was a child of Iranians called Ali David Sonboly. Skip forward a couple of days and a ‘-Syrian asylum seeker’ with a machete was hacking a pregnant woman to death in Stuttgart. The next day…

Musical Interlude: ‘Ievan Polkka’ by Korpiklaani

It’s been far too long since we enjoyed some Finnish folk metal, isn’t it?

I say it is. So here’s a jaunty traditional Finnish polka song, done fast and heavy:

How is Britain doing economically, a month after the Brexit vote? Just fine.

A month after the Brexit vote, seems the U.K. is managing just fine, contra all the naysayers:

It has been a month since the UK voted to leave the European Union — but something is missing. Where is the economic collapse? What of EUpocalypse Now? Where is the Brexageddon that we were promised? To the shock of many — not least business titans who bankrolled the Remain campaign — the instant collapse doesn’t seem to be happening. The UK economy is, for now at least, taking Brexit in its stride.

The oft-predicted job losses? During the three weeks from 23 June, job listings were up 150,000 compared to the same period last year according to Reed Group, a recruitment consultant. ‘That’s an 8 per cent rise,’ says James Reed, its chairman. ‘The vote hasn’t affected things — people are still hiring.’

How about all those international banks quitting the City of London? Last week the US banking thoroughbred Wells Fargo forked out £300 million for a new world headquarters — in London. Since Brexit, the likes of Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan have hailed the City as ‘one of the most attractive places in the world to do business’, citing its ‘stable legal system’ and ‘deep liquid capital markets unmatched anywhere in Europe’.

But surely leaving the EU is so rash it’ll spark financial collapse? While UK stocks took a hit straight after the referendum, the FTSE 100 share index is now 6 per cent higher than before we voted. Even the FTSE 250, comprised of smaller, more UK-centric firms, has almost completed its recovery.

Ah, but the pound has been hammered since Brexit — sterling is about 10 per cent lower against the dollar than a month ago. Bad news for some, but a boost for British goods sold abroad. Especially welcome for a country that borrows in its own currency and runs a big trade deficit. Last summer, the International Monetary Fund warned that a strong pound was hampering UK recovery. Now with sterling lower, our growth prospects have presumably improved.

Not so long ago, the IMF said that Brexit would result in economic chaos. Christine Lagarde, as she campaigned alongside the then-chancellor George Osborne, envisioned scenarios ranging from ‘pretty bad to very, very bad’. That same IMF now takes a ‘benign’ view of Brexit, suggesting growth of 1.7 per cent this year and 1.3 per cent the next — better than Italy, France or Germany.

So, far from Britain shooting itself in the foot, there’s a growing realisation that leaving the EU could be a shot in the arm. Far from shunning us, the likes of Germany and even France are playing nice. Countries as diverse as Australia and South Korea, Mexico and India have made very positive noises about trade deals with the UK. Having put us ‘at the back of the queue’ before we voted, the Obama administration now wants to ‘maximise the economic opportunity’ and strike a deal with Britain ‘as fast as possible’.

Even Osborne, who used the Treasury machine to generate and promote absurdly precise predictions of post-Brexit penury 15 years hence, has changed his tune. Being outside the EU means the UK ‘can reach out to build stronger economic and trading ties with old allies… and new partners’, he said last week. By George, I think he’s got it. Free to strike our own trade agreements, Britain can forge vital bilateral deals with the fast-growing markets of the East, rather than being hamstrung by the commercial sensitivities of 27 other EU members.

Britons made the right choice.

 

#BlackOlivesMatter

No publicity is bad publicity!

An Italian restaurant in Albuquerque, New Mexico fell under fire for punning about the Black Lives Matter movement in an advertisement on its marquee. After the sign was removed, however, customers flocked to support the restaurant.

[…]

“Since Wednesday, July 13, we have been inundated with positive, supportive phone calls from the community as well as overwhelmed with business, not only from our ‘regulars,’ but from so many new customers who came from Albuquerque, surrounding cities, and even neighboring states simply to support us,” the restaurant wrote on its Facebook page, adding that some of its crew were moved to tears because of the outpouring of support.

“Many nowadays would contend that society has changed for the worse, but our experience this week has proven the opposite,” the post continued. “We have encountered so many quality people of character; salt of the earth and the bedrock of America. Awesome.”

Camuglia said he does not regret posting the phrase on his sign and feels no need to apologize to the people it offended.

Fuck yeah!:)

Another attack on police

This time in Baton Rouge.

So it continues

 

France and America, twin victims of multiple terrorism attacks in 2015 and 2016

The Charlie Hebdo shooting.

The Bataclan attack.

The San Bernardino attack.

The Orlando attack.

The attack on Dallas police.

The Nice attack.

And no doubt more terrorist violence to come.

Unless both countries’ people figure out what they need to do to stop it (since the governing regimes, in both cases, are failing to do so).

Remember, the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results.

Try something different, instead; it might work.

Hey, you’ve only got everything to lose, if you do nothing different…
