Inspirational Quote of the Day: One by Hans Christian Andersen

H. C. Andersen is one of our great thinkers. His writing is not religious but is at a high level of spirituality. They would like us to forget him and the magic he created with pen and paper.

Hans Christian Andersen (/ˈhɑːnz ˈkrɪstʃən ˈændərsən/; Danish: [hanˀs ˈkʁæsdjan ˈɑnɐsn̩] (About this sound listen), often referred to in Scandinavia as H. C. Andersen, (2 April 1805 – 4 August 1875) was a Danish author. Although a prolific writer of plays, travelogues, novels, and poems, Andersen is best remembered for his fairy tales. Andersen’s popularity is not limited to children; his stories, called eventyr in Danish, express themes that transcend age and nationality.

Andersen’s fairy tales, which have been translated into more than 125 languages,[1] have become culturally embedded in the West’s collective consciousness, readily accessible to children, but presenting lessons of virtue and resilience in the face of adversity for mature readers as well.[2] Some of his most famous fairy tales include “The Emperor’s New Clothes,” “The Little Mermaid,” “The Nightingale,” “The Snow Queen,” “The Ugly Duckling,” and “Thumbelina.” His stories have inspired ballets, plays, and animated and live-action films.[3]

Trump Ends Aid to CIA Funded Rebels in Syria

Trump wants peace, not World War III, but this news will start a new round of “Trump is a Russian agent” fake news.

The Independent

Donald Trump has reportedly decided to end the US’s funding and training of so-called moderate Syrian rebels opposed to Bashar al-Assad – something that has long been requested by Moscow.

The plan to train and equip rebels opposed to Mr Assad was started in 2013 under the administration of Barack Obama, as an effort to try and put pressure on the Syrian leader to step aside. While most of the heavy weapons and cash were provided by Saudi Arabia, the CIA took the lead in the training.

Now, it has been reported that Mr Trump has decided to cancel the programme, something that will likely be welcomed by Russia, which has for years supported the Assad regime.

Let’s pick up the story with an excerpt from the Washington Examiner

U.S. support for rebels fighting against Syrian President Bashar Assad was a bipartisan, if controversial, plank of American policy in the country as recently as last fall. Former President Barack Obama began the shipments in 2013 and a GOP-led Congress eased restrictions on the program in 2016. But Russia and Turkey, a NATO ally, have accused the United States of backing terrorist groups.

“Officials said the phasing out of the secret program reflects Trump’s interest in finding ways to work with Russia, which saw the anti-Assad program as an assault on its interests,” according to the Washington Post, which first reported the move. “The shuttering of the program is also an acknowledgment of Washington’s limited leverage and desire to remove Assad from power.”

Russia has denounced U.S. support for the rebel groups throughout the civil war, accusing the U.S. of commiting a “hostile act” and claiming that the Obama team was trying to block a Trump-led rapprochement with Russia.

“Overall, it appears that the Authorization Act has been adopted by the outgoing Obama administration…to create problems for the incoming Trump administration and complicate its relations on the international stage, as well as to force it to adopt an anti-Russia policy,” Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said in December. “We hope the new administration will be more sagacious.”

Trump’s decision to end might irritate the lawmakers who voted for the 2016 defense bill, however. Senate Intelligence Committee member James Lankford, R-Okla., for instance, recently praised U.S. intelligence efforts in Syria, albeit without naming any specific covert programs.

A certain “tribe” isn’t going to like this at all. Not to mention that John McCain will develop another blood clot as he learns the news.

Troll BG Kumbi: I Own the National Media Now!

There seems to be a massive amount of confusion among the alt-right about whether BG Kumbi (not his real name) is a troll or a real antifa leader.

Andrew Anglin at the Daily Stormer had proclaimed him a troll, but has done a 180 and now proclaims him as a true antifa leader.

Comments at Zerohedge are all over the place regarding how real Kumbi’s desire to “smash the fash” really is.

Below are the two videos that are creating a stir among the alt-right and alt-light. Even Eric Trump has allegedly Tweeted that the kid is a real antifa, believing in racist horses.

Watch! About 10 minutes total. Observe the photo of Karl Marx in the background and the bottle of lotion next to it.

Look at what a racist Trump supporter did to Kumbi’s window! LOL! Fake!

Inspirational Frightening Quote of the Day: One by a Brooklyn Muslim Leader

Views on governance and the punishment of certain crimes[edit]
Wahhaj has made statements in support of Islamic laws over liberal democracy. He also supports capital punishments such as stoning for adultery and cutting off of hands for thievery. He has said: “Islam is better than democracy. Allah will cause his deen [Islam as a complete way of life], Islam to prevail over every kind of system, and you know what? It will happen.”[9]

He has also said: “If Allah says 100 strikes, 100 strikes it is. If Allah says cut off their hand, you cut off their hand. If Allah says stone them to death, through the Prophet Muhammad, then you stone them to death, because it’s the obedience of Allah and his messenger—nothing personal.”[when?][10]

1993 World Trade Center bombing[edit]
Wahhaj was one of 170 people identified by US Attorney Mary Jo White in 1995 as “unindicted persons who may be alleged as co-conspirators” in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing,[11][12][13] but was never charged,[12] and denies any involvement with the bombing.[11]
Wahhaj was a defence witness at the trial of the Blind Sheikh, Omar Abdel-Rahman, the former leader of the Egyptian terrorist organization, Gama’a al-Islamiyya.[13]

In November 1999, Wahhaj was one of many Muslim leaders who met with New York mayor Michael Bloomberg at City Hall. Wahhaj said that he hoped all Americans would eventually become Muslim and also referred to the FBI and CIA as the “real terrorists”.[11]

Inspirational Quote of the Day: One by Nikola Tesla

Wikipedia

Nikola Tesla (Serbian Cyrillic: Никола Тесла; 10 July 1856 – 7 January 1943) was a Serbian-American[2][3][4] inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, physicist, and futurist who is best known for his contributions to the design of the modern alternating current (AC) electricity supply system.[5]

Born and raised in the Austrian Empire, Tesla received an advanced education in engineering and physics in the 1870s and gained practical experience in the early 1880s working in telephony and at Continental Edison in the new electric power industry. He emigrated to the United States in 1884, where he would become a naturalized citizen. He worked for a short time at the Edison Machine Works in New York City before he struck out on his own. With the help of partners to finance and market his ideas, Tesla set up laboratories and companies in New York to develop a range of electrical and mechanical devices. His alternating current (AC) induction motor and related polyphase AC patents, licensed by Westinghouse Electric in 1888, earned him a considerable amount of money and became the cornerstone of the polyphase system which that company would eventually market.

Attempting to develop inventions he could patent and market, Tesla conducted a range of experiments with mechanical oscillators/generators, electrical discharge tubes, and early X-ray imaging. He also built a wireless-controlled boat, one of the first ever exhibited. Tesla became well known as an inventor and would demonstrate his achievements to celebrities and wealthy patrons at his lab, and was noted for his showmanship at public lectures.
