    In New York City, many illegals are getting $3,000/month.

    Seems taxpayers are less than delighted that the money for which they worked is being handed-out to people who have no right to be in America in the first place. Hmmmm ... the sheep need to get used to being sheered by the globalist gods.

    You may know that...but the rest of the world does not ...especially Americans...at times we really are that dumb....!!


    By Olde Geezer...


    America and Americans in last place vs Trump and America first......huge difference and gap..

    America Last place is the Deep State Internationalist plan...while we work and risk for first place.

    And I also think that someone wants to do the same to Russia and Russians.....last place.

    I also don't think the Average American has a clue ....

    Once upon a time, Americans were real people. They actually worked. They read. They had belief systems.

    Today, the education system has been dumbed-down so far that most youth are unable to think. The dumbing-down was to allow people to graduate who are too inferior to achieve this.

    When I was in high school, we had Chemistry and Physics. These were anything but easy; however, these went A LONG WAY in getting me through university. Back then, universities would fail you out for fun and relaxation. During our Electronics education, half of the people failed-out. Those who couldn't cut it were culled. This was intentional. They told us at the start to look at the person sitting next to us and said that likely one or the other wouldn't make it (me I aced the place, 4.0 out of 4.0; my brain is wired for visual/logic ... other studies, I was only so-so; I've always struggled with language skills; one of my sons is also dyslexic ... but can see in his mind whatever he needs to get done; isn't genetics a riot). My chemistry skills weren't so hot; yet for some reason, I did well in the biological sciences (don't know how that happened). Words having Latin origins help very much in the spelling realm. English needs to be repaired -- what a crazy quilt. Now I'm old. I'm hovering over the Earth at altitude. I'm just an observer. I don't feel like I belong here anymore. It's all stupid down there.

    That is how military boot camp worked when I enlisted way way back.

    The objective was that if you could not handle certain basics....they did not want to spend a lot of monies and time sending you to a specific and expensive training school.....

    The objective was to weed out the weak ones...before spending too much monies on them...or getting others hurt or killed..out in the field..



    Physics and Chemistry back then were never my forte.....and math...I was horrible in math.

    Were it not for the help of a few others taking time in teaching me ...I would have not made the grade in learning Electronics...and or radar..

    Only later in life....did I come to learn that Math is a type of language...with definite rules.

    I still do not like math...but one cannot get away from it.

    As a machinist...I had to make myself learn to think down in the thousandths of an inch...and apply the math...


    Today ....with a lot of reading/water under the bridge so to speak...I learned that in the early days...I did not have much of a vocabulary....and thus kept a dictionary close by.

    Eventually I learned/discovered something called Etymology...the historical derivation of words..and I found that fascinating.

    Many of our words actually mean something deeper than what most of us recognize today.........and not just in English but in Latin, French.....et al.

    What I discovered is that the Olde ones who came before us and formed our language were not stupid...at all...

    I love the smell of an olde dusty book store.......

    The great thing about books.....they will outlast an electronic shutdown.

    Oh...and also it became clear that when you read olde books...100 to 150 years olde....compared to todays writers....many of those Olde ones could write...and knew the language....they were not the dummies you see today with language skills at the newspaper/cartoon level.

    I have had people tell me that at times I speak strangely.....not in a manner to which they are accustomed.

    And that is when you begin to realize this............

    The Elders who taught me .....spoke that people back then had a vocabulary of some 4000 to 4500 words and knew what they meant.....

    Today the average college grad has a Vocabulary of some 1000 to 1200 words and most of them four letter words.

    I was a bit stunned by that......but over time began to realize that these Elders were correct...

    And remember something ....many of these Grads are today in leadership positions.


    Gives me the warm fuzzies....how about you folks.


    But you members decide for yourselves....and for your own reasons.

      The smell and adventure of book stores -- yes. Libraries are in the blood of both my wife and I. We've a library at home. When young, we'd go on yard sale safaris and mount classics on our own shelves. This, on the cheap. I found a leather-bound set (in horrible shape, mind you) of Victor Hugo -- it was like the second edition. An old man had died. We wouldn't let these books die with him. Still have the set.

      You are a spacial relations type of thinker. My youngest son, also. He didn't do well in school so we got him into computer drafting. Did great. He's got a steady job and continues to learn about city infrastructures / large scale projects. You guys can see the end in the beginning. If this isn't an evolutionary survival skill, then I'm at a loss as to what would constitute such.

    Amen 0n this Olde Geezer....

    A older woman I used to date....may she rest in Peace.....taught me about flea markets and yard sales. Lots and lots of books for sale in these places...

    I still go to flea markets and yard sales today when time allows...and for the same reasons....on the cheap.

    As a side light of what this older woman taught me....I learned that one can get pure junk in the regular retail stores unless one learns to think outside the box of our standard programming/education.

    I've gotten a lot of good used tools at flea markets and yard sales....one just has to know what is a good tool....versus junk.

    And the same in retail stores.

    computer skills are survival skills, really?
    when TSHTF we wont need computer programmers, we will need people to grow food and know about keeping animals, fishermen, butchers and cooks. REAL survival skills.

    If you might need to learn how to build / fix / jerry-rig post-SHTF, putting back build manuals and repair manuals could come in very handy. I have several books and manuals that fit into this category. Too, books need to be put back for the post-SHTF years. Humans always build back. If the sun goes super-nova, then that would be rather bad for the extended future of our specieshgbg.

    No one can do everything, learn everything.

    Thank you lonewolf....


    I struggled and lost out with my last post....

    Boot sales is the word for which I was looking. That is not a word usage familiar to us here in America...but I shall have to remember that.

    Thanks for reminding me.

    When I visit the yard sales ... then ... now ... not as often now, I remember to pray for those who have passed from this physical plane of existence leaving unseen & unknown treasures. My mate and I treasure that which they treasured here in the physical realm.

    God's blessings be upon them. Guide me and my wife you who would have your treasures treasured on and on.

    its what we have here, we dont have much in the way of yard sales although they do happen but not very often.
    I go to several car boot sales which are located on various sites, mostly community playing fields and cricket and football fields and at least one on a cattle market site-thats the main one we go to although it is 30 miles each way.

    "Berlin: 174 arrested at unauthorized pro-Palestinian events"

    https://www.dw.com/en/berlin-174-arrested-at-unauthorized-pro-palestinian-events/a-67145837

    "At least 174 people were arrested and 65 police officers were injured at unauthorized pro-Palestinian demonstrations in Berlin on Wednesday night, according to a police spokesperson.

    "Authorities had banned such protests, which have been called in response to the conflict between Israel and Hamas, the militant group which killed around 1,400 Israelis in a terrorist attack two weeks ago.

    "Clashes broke out in the district of Neukölln between police and protesters who did not comply with orders to disperse.

    "Some attendees used pyrotechnics, set fire to barricades and pelted police with stones and bottles, law enforcement said.

    "The incident comes after after two Molotov cocktails were thrown at a Jewish community center in Berlin in the early hours of Wednesday morning. "

    Maybe visiters to the European Union from civilized countries should follow the example of illegal migrants and sneak-in using small boats and dinghies.

    "Achtung! US Travel To Europe Will Require Prior Approval, Biometric Scanning"


    https://www.zerohedge.com/geopoliti...ill-require-prior-approval-biometric-scanning

    Begin quote

    Traveling to most European countries is about to get more complicated and invasive for American citizens: In spring 2025, you'll have to first request permission. And you'll be saying adieu to passport stamps and ciao to facial and fingerprint scans -- and having your biometric data stored in an enormous government database.

    On Friday, an agency of the European Union announced the updated timing for the European Travel Information and Authorization System (ETIAS), which has first set to roll out in 2024. It applies to travelers from more than 60 countries that are currently exempt from visa requirements. Those countries have an aggregate population of 1.4 billion.

    The approval will be tied to your passport, and will be valid for up to three years or until your passport expires, whichever comes earlier. Once you have it, you'll be able to visit as much as you want, so long as it's a "short-term stay," which generally means up to 90 days in a 180-day period.

    ETIAS recommends applying for permission "well in advance" of your trip, but doesn't specify what that means. The agency does caution that the approval period "could be extended by up to 14 days if you are requested to provide additional information or documentation, or up to 30 days if you are invited to an interview." There's no indication where such interviews would be conducted or by whom.

    Participating countries will no longer give passport stamps that some travelers collect with pride. In a move that's causing electronic-privacy advocates to sound alarms, you'll have to submit to both fingerprint and face scans, with the information then stored in the European Commission's Common Identity Repository (CIR), which is fed by multiple systems, including police agencies.

    Even those who trust governments to only use the CIR for good should be wary of the risks of hacking by criminals or other governments, or the demonstrated tendency for rogue employees to give or sell the information to other parties. Of course, none of us should trust governments with massive personal data repositories. Recall that the US Drug Enforcement Agency was caught using information from warrantless intelligence-gathering to unconstitutionally initiate investigations.

    The European announcement is one more step toward dystopia, where citizens are little more than tax-cattle to be tagged and tracked as we move from pen to pen across the globe. Naturally, our masters assure us we have nothing to fear...that it's all for our own safety, particularly in times of danger. As former German interior minister Thomas de Maziere said, "Privacy is nice, but in times of crisis...security comes first."

    Good thing that illegal migrants prone to "radicalization" don't have to go through all this. That would be "oppression".

    "Over 7,000 Women in Germany Have Been Raped or Sexually Assaulted by Asylum Seeking Migrants Since 2015: Report"

    https://www.breitbart.com/europe/20...exually-assaulted-by-asylum-seeking-migrants/

    "A report from the Swiss-German paper of record, Neue Zürcher Zeitung, claimed that statistics from the Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA) show that more than one thousand women — mostly Germans — have been sexually assaulted by migrants seeking refuge every year since 2017.

    "Extrapolating from this figure, the paper calculated that therefore at least 7,000 women have been raped or sexually assaulted by asylum seekers since former German Chancellor Angela Merkel ushered in the European Migrant Crisis in 2015 by unilaterally opening the gates of Europe to massive waves of migrants from the Middle East and Africa.

    "Last year, NZZ reported, asylum-seeking migrants were vastly overrepresented in reported cases of rape and sexual assault. Out of the estimated 10,000 suspects, 6,366 were German while 3,679 were foreigners. Of those, 1,115 were asylum-seeking migrants, meaning that while they represented just 2.5 per cent of the population, they were responsible for over 11 per cent of the sex assaults and rapes.

    "The deputy chairman of the German Federal Police Union, Manuel Ostermann, said that the migrants committing sexual assault and rape — mostly against German women — are often already known to the police and sometimes have already been convicted of a crime but remain in the country due to lax deportation standards."

    Hopefully, farmers will cut back on sending food to major cities / urban areas. Farmers, small towns in agricultural regions, all Heartlanders need to join together and starve the elitists.

    I love it that farmers are fighting back in Germany, the Netherlands, and France.

    "Fiery Tractor Protests Launched in France as Farmer Uprising Spreads Across Europe"


    https://www.breitbart.com/europe/20...nce-as-farmer-uprising-spreads-across-europe/

    Begin quote

    Following a week of farmer uprisings across Germany, disaffected farmers rose up in protest against the globalist government of Emmanuel Macron in France, with manure being dumped and hay set on fire in Avignon and Toulouse on Tuesday.

    A veritable peasants’ revolt appears to be budding across the continent as overregulation, inflation and the green agenda are taking their toll on the ability of farmers to earn a living in — and consequently feed the people of — modern Europe. The latest protests to crop up in France came over the low payout from supermarket chains to food producers.

    Signs hung on tractors read: “No farmers, no food,” and: “France, do you still want your farmers?” the local La Provence newspaper reported. Footage posted by video journalist Clement Lanot on X showed farmers dumping mature, agricultural waste and even wine on the streets of the city, while some set bales of hay ablaze to express their anger.

    Brief clashes also broke out as farmers attempted to break into a chain supermarket, which they claim has been price gouging their produce and keeping the increased revenues to themselves.

    An estimated 450 tractors and other vehicles in three convoys also rode into the city of Toulouse on Tuesday, with manure and straw being strewn across the city as well, Le Figaro reported.

    Florian Arnoux, a farmer from Caderousse said that amid years of inflation and rising costs, there has been little consideration given to the economic realities faced by farmers, saying: “It’s anger, it’s the fatigue of so many years of work for nothing… We always exhaust ourselves so much for nothing.”

    French farmers have been protesting against the interference of the state in their ability to farm for many years, but these latest protests in Avignon come after a week of large-scale farmer civil disobedience in Germany, where farmers shut down major highways and cities after the left-wing government of Chancellor Olaf Scholz announced in December that it would be eliminating seven-decade-old tax exemptions on agricultural fuel to fill a gap in the federal budget, while at the same time increasing funding for the war in Ukraine.

    "African Knifeman Wounds Three People in Paris Train Station Attack"

    https://www.breitbart.com/europe/20...s-three-people-in-paris-train-station-attack/

    Begin quote

    (AFP) — Three people were injured Saturday in a knife attack at Paris’s Gare de Lyon railway station, a major travel hub, police said, adding that a suspect had been arrested.

    The detained man, a Malian national, went on a stabbing spree at around 8:00 am (0700 GMT) at the station, which operates domestic trains as well as those heading to Switzerland and Italy.

    One person suffered serious injuries to the abdomen while two others were lightly wounded, police said.

    “The suspect did not cry out (any religious slogans) during his attack,” a police source said. “He presented the police an Italian driving licence”, which gave his date of birth as January 1, 1992.

    The assault took place less than six months before Paris hosts the 2024 Olympics and and an expected 15 million visitors.

    "Macron Berated by French Farmers: ‘You Gave Ukraine Colossal Sums, But Gave Us Crumbs!’ "


    https://www.breitbart.com/europe/20...ave-ukraine-colossal-sums-but-gave-us-crumbs/

    Begin quote

    French President Emmanuel Macron on Saturday was surrounded by groups of farmers who chastised the neo-liberal leader for his green agenda and for prioritising Ukraine over his own people.

    At the 60th Agricultural Show held in the Porte de Versailles exhibition centre in Paris on Saturday, agricultural unions and organisations clashed with security and breached the gates in order to air the grievances of farmers to Emmanuel Macron directly. After initially showing hesitancy, the French president acquiesced and held an impromptu debate with several farmers.

    According to the German-based think tank the Kiel Institute, Macron’s government has committed approximately $2 billion in French taxpayer money to Ukraine since 2022. However, the French taxpayer has paid substantially more through the European Union’s funding of the war, which is set to total over $150 billion after Brussels recently approved an additional $54 billion to Kyiv.

    Farmers in France, and indeed throughout Europe, have been financially impacted by the war in Ukraine in more ways than having their tax dollars sent to Kyiv. Last year, the European Union decided to allow Ukrainian agricultural imports to flow into the bloc without any tariffs. The move has severely hurt the ability of local European farmers to compete, given that the lower regulatory burden and the lower cost of labour in the former Soviet state means that food can be produced at a much cheaper rate.

    Ukraine was not the only issue raised by the farmers to Macron on Saturday. Multiple farmers spoke of the problems they are facing due to transitioning their operations to organic farming at the urging of the government in Paris and the EU.

    “I went organic, it’s a stupid thing I did: I sell my cereals at the conventional price,” one farmer said per Le Figaro, adding: “I don’t pay myself not low income, my income is zero. You are putting a plaster on an open fracture.” Another farmer said: “People no longer have purchasing power, they cannot buy organic!”

    They also reiterated grievances such as over-regulation, excess paperwork, and the EU’s green agenda as a whole, which many in France have tied to Macron’s government, given his party’s backing of climate policies in Brussels. In addition, the farmer’s groups called for the release of tractor protesters from police custody.

    Following weeks of tractor protests throughout France, including a “siege of Paris”, Macron’s second in command, Prime Minister Gabriel Attal announced some concessions to farmers, including ending planned tax hikes on agricultural diesel, additional financial support and a commitment to oppose the free trade deal with the South American ‘Mercosur’ bloc.

    However, while tractor protests have mostly subsided for the moment, the anger among struggling farmers has not. Arnaud Rousseau, the head of the FNSEA agricultural union in France, has said that it is “very probable” farmers will once again take to their tractors to protest. Farmers throughout Europe will likely try to keep up the pressure on their governments and Brussels ahead of June’s European Parliament elections.

    What if the globalists want your country dead?

    America is hated. Individualism is hated.

    The Big Brother globalists are the enemies of Liberty, so let them all die.

    Maybe when some American enemy nukes D.C., many globalist operatives within the US government's deep state will get exterminated.
