Pentagon may demote Gen Patraeus

January 18, 2016

David Patraeus stepped down as the director of the CIA after it became known that he had an affair and shared classified information with Paula Broadwell, a reservist and his biographer. Now nearly four years later it’s reported the Pentagon is considering demoted the Retired General.

General Patraeus pleaded guilty to giving Broadwell notebooks that contained classified information. The information did not appear in Broadwell’s biography of Petraeus. Still Patraeus could have faced charges from the FBI.

Broadwell did have a security clearance at the time and no information appears to have leaked.

This does not excuse the General for doing what any normal intelligence or operations officer would certainly have been prosecuted for.

However, we have a former Secretary of State whose personal email account contained classified material for all, who might have searched to see.

General, until this election is over you had better stay quiet.

Just saying.

Pedophiles in Pakistan win

January 17, 2016

I’m sure the feminist will jump all over this.  Oh wait these guys are not straight white men. Never mind! 

Pakistani lawmakers had to withdraw a bill aimed at curbing the practice of child marriage after a prominent religious body declared the legislation un-Islamic.

The bill, which proposed raising the marriage age for females from 16 to 18, also called for harsher penalties for those who would arrange marriages involving children. Despite the laws in place, child marriages, particularly involving young female brides, are common in parts of the country. It’s estimated that some 20 percent of girls in the country are married before they turn 18.

Clerics on the council object to minimum age requirements, arguing instead that an individual can marry once reaching puberty, which can be as early as the age of 9.

Women, just keep them at arms length, that’ll fix it…

Cologne Mayor’s ‘Arm’s Length’ Advice on Sexual Attacks Stirs Outcry

BERLIN — The mayor of Cologne has inflamed a debate in Germany about migrants and sexual harassment by suggesting that women can protect themselves from men on the streets by keeping them more than an arm’s length away.

If this wasn’t so serious this would be funny as hell.   But it is serious and it’s not funny.  People of Germany your government will not protect you.  You’re screwed.

Update: telegraph:

Two publications have released what they claim is an internal report by a senior officer who was at the scene.

If confirmed, the report could have far-reaching consequences for Angela Merkel’s government as it tries to deal with the aftermath of the assaults.

Ministers have said there is no evidence asylum seekers were involved in the violence.

But the leaked police report, published in Bild newspaper and Spiegel, a news magazine, claims that one of those involved told officers: “I am Syrian. You have to treat me kindly. Mrs Merkel invited me.”

Another tore up his residence permit before the eyes of police, and told them: “You can’t do anything to me, I can get a new one tomorrow.”

Köln attacks a surprise? Really?

January 6, 2016

As more details come out about the Köln attacks in Germany on New Years I am repeatedly reading how surprised everyone is.  Why is that I wonder?  Were there no warning signs, such as Sweden’s experience?  This beautiful country can now claim one of the highest rape rates in Europe since deciding to become a multi-cultural haven?  Violent crime has increased 300% according to d-intl.com.

(BBC 2016) “City police chief Wolfgang Albers called it “a completely new dimension of crime”. The men were of Arab or North African appearance, he said.”

Perhaps no one saw the reporter Lora Logan assaulted in Egypt in 2011 during the political uprising there. Lora’s story is not unique.  Do a search on women reporters or women attacked in various “Asian” countries.

So who is surprised and why?

The politicians and the European left have consistently portrayed the influx of refugee’s as a wonderful experiment in liberalism.  They produce reports (mostly government own or licensed media) that only reflect wonderful people just yearning for liberty and freedom when in fact this is not always the case. They show integration working great, when in fact it is not.

Those Germans I hear from are afraid to travel these days.  Packs of men roam the streets and congregate around ubahn, strassenbahn, and train stations. These are not packs of Danes or Dutch.

It’s as if nobody could foresee that people from a vastly different culture that abhors western ideas would cause problems.

Strange indeed.
