    It could have been Education. When we went up against Nazi Germany, a lot of Germans fled to the US. Inevitably, some of them were probably... um... Undocumented Nazis, like, literal Nazis, but we didnt know about them. And they got themselves into Education to promote the ideas of Socialism in our mandatory educational systems. Those people got funding from existing well funded Socialists. Follow the money. The promises that Socialism makes appeals to immigrants who want free stuff, so message spreads that way also. What we are looking for may not be a direct causality, but a several step process.

    Its not relatable enough because people want to feel privileged. I think we need something that makes everyone realize how much they are playing into the Oppressor vs Victim Paradigm, and hopefully wake up that it is the Leftist mentality that creates the Real Victims. Suggestions?

    Because nobody but Turkey wants to see the Ottoman empire return, they are all afraid of being dominated or conquered by Turkey if it is able to start growing its borders.

    Arab League Secretary General Ahmed Aboul Gheit on Saturday led Arab foreign ministers in lambasting Turkey's military operation in northeast Syria as an "invasion of an Arab state's land and an aggression on its sovereignty".Iraqi Foreign Minister Mohamed Ali Alhakim, president of the current Arab League session, also condemned Turkey's offensive into Syria during an emergency meeting of the body, called by Egypt. Reading from the meeting's final communique, Aboul Gheit said that the Arab League will consider taking measures against Turkey in the economic, investment and cultural sectors, and include tourism and military cooperation. He also called on the U.N. Security Council to "take the necessary measures to stop the Turkish aggression and (for) the withdrawal from Syrian territory immediately". Arab foreign ministers had earlier lined up to condemn Turkey. The offensive "will exacerbate humanitarian crises, increase the suffering of the Syrian people, and strengthen the ability of terrorists to reorganise their remnants," Alhakim said. Alhakim and Lebanon's Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil called on the League to reinstate Syria's membership in the body. The UAE's Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash also condemned the Turkish offensive.

    A magnitude 5.7 earthquake has jolted the main island of Japan as Typhoon Hagibis, one of the strongest storms to hit in decades, continues to reap devastation throughout the central region of the country. The earthquake recorded a 4 on Japan’s intensity scale of 7, with the epicentre located in the Pacific Ocean off Chiba Prefecture, close to major cities such as Tokyo and Shizuoka on the south coast of the Honshu island. No tsunami warning has been issued. Japanese Meteorological Agency (JMA) confirmed the quake, saying that it struck at 6.22pm Japan Standard Time at a depth of 80km in the Chiba-ken region. The tremor was felt across the capital, leaving buildings shaking amid already treacherous conditions generated by Typhoon Hagibis. Hagibis, which has been classified as “very strong” by the Japan Meteorological Agency, is advancing on a northerly path over the south of Honshu. It’s set on a collision course with Tokyo and the wider Kanto region, which is set to experience record-breaking rain and winds. The storm made landfall on Saturday evening, having been downgraded beforehand to “strong,” the JMA’s level for typhoons just above a severe tropical storm. More than five million evacuation advisories have so far been ordered up and down Honshu’s south coast, with residents taking shelter in crisis centres amid rising flood levels and violent winds which have left one man dead.

    Germany is willing to contribute more to NATO's running costs as long as other allies also step up to help reduce the United States' share of funding, German Defense Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer said on Friday.President Donald Trump has long accused European allies, especially Germany, the biggest economy in Europe, of taking U.S. security guarantees for granted and says they need to spend much more on their own defense. With a meeting of NATO leaders looming in December, some allies now see reform of financing for the U.S.-led military alliance as a way to preempt another round of criticism from Trump and show that they are listening to his concerns. At some $2.5 billion a year, the budget for North Atlantic Treaty Organization headquarters, international staff and the limited number of military assets under NATO command is a small sum compared to the hundreds of billions of dollars that allies spend on their armed forces each year. Under a proposal now being considered by NATO, the U.S. contribution to the alliance's annual budget would fall to 16% from the current 22%, while Germany's would rise, also to 16% from 14.8%, from 2021. Other countries would also pay more. More at: https://news.yahoo.com/pressed-trump-over-defense-germany-145139412.html

    Iran is prepared to hold talks with regional rival Saudi Arabia with or without the help of a mediator, the Iranian Foreign Ministry said on Saturday, ahead of a visit by Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan.Asked about reports that Khan, due to arrive in Iran on Sunday, may try to mediate between Tehran and Riyadh, Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi said: "I am not aware of any mediation," according to state broadcaster IRIB. "Iran has announced that, with or without a mediator, it is always ready to hold talk with its neighbours, including Saudi Arabia, to get rid of any misunderstandings," Mousavi added. Two senior Pakistani government officials confirmed to Reuters that Khan was going to Tehran to try to defuse tensions between the two rivals, after U.S. President Donald Trump asked for his help. "The prime minister is also visiting Saudi Arabia next week," one official said, speaking on condition of anonymity because he wasn't allowed to talk about confidential matters. "His mission is to try open negotiations, or some sort of confidence building for the two rival countries to start some talks," the official said.

    By official accounts, the pig contagion wreaking havoc across Eastern Asia has virtually skipped over North Korea, with a single outbreak reported there in May. But wayward feral pigs have stoked concern that Kim Jong Un’s reclusive state is hiding an African swine fever disaster.Three wild boars were found dead in border areas separating the two countries earlier this month before being tested positive for the viral hemorrhagic disease, officials in South Korea said. The finding reflects the freedom with which animals roam the 4-kilometer (2.5 mile) wide buffer zone that divides the nations and creates an involuntary park and refuge for fauna. It also hints at a spillover of the deadly virus from North Korea, where unofficial reports indicate the disease is spreading out of control. South Korea has deployed helicopters to disinfect parts of the 250-kilometer-long border-barrier, near which more than a dozen outbreaks have occurred on farms since the virus was first reported there a month ago. African swine fever has spread to almost all areas of North Korea, and pigs in the western province of North Pyongan have been “wiped out,” said Lee Hye-hoon, who chairs the National Assembly’s intelligence committee, citing South Korea’s National Intelligence Service. The virus killed 22 hogs in May on a cooperative farm about 260 kilometers north of Pyongyang, near the border with China, North Korea’s agriculture ministry said in a May 30 report to the World Organization for Animal Health, or OIE. But since then, there have been no follow-up reports to the Paris-based veterinary body, and scant coverage of the event in state media. UN Delegate The Food and Agriculture Organization has no information beyond the report received by the OIE, said Wantanee Kalpravidh, the United Nations agency’s Bangkok-based regional manager of the Emergency Centre for Transboundary Animal Diseases. The FAO is awaiting approval to send a delegate to North Korea, she said in a text message Friday. Widespread transmission of African swine fever, which isn’t known to harm humans but kills most pigs in a week, may put North Korea’s food security in graver jeopardy. Crop production there is forecast to be smaller than usual for the rest of 2019 due to below-average rainfall and low water supplies for irrigation, the FAO said last month. About 40% of the population, or 10.1 million people, are estimated to be food-insecure and in urgent need of food assistance, according to results from an UN assessment conducted last April.

    Ah, the Kurds. How can mere words render a proper appreciation? They’re trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous…um…no; no, they’re not. Oh, sure, as individuals they can be fairly boon companions, but in the main and in the mass? Not so much. My first experience of the Kurds – rather, of how the rest of the area thinks of and feels about them – was before I’d ever met my first one. This was at a majlis, in the town of Judah (or Goodah), Saudi Arabia, sometime in December or so, 1990. Citizenship is kind of an iffy and flexible concept in that part of the world, so there were folk from Saudi, from Oman, from the Emirates. There was even one Arab who insisted he was a citizen of the Gulf Cooperation Council, since he was a fully documented citizen of so many places in the GCC. I had my doubts right up until he pulled out a bilingual ID card which, indeed, did seem to list him as a citizen of the GCC. One of the attendees had brought with him a book detailing the results of the chemical attack on the Kurdish town of Halabja by the army and air force of Saddam Hussein. It was really heartbreaking, all those picture of gassed, dead, discolored, and decomposing Kurdish kids, who are, in fact, every bit as cute as the papers and television made them out to be. At least when they’re not dead they are. My team sergeant, Sig, and I were duly appalled and sickened. The Arabs, though, didn’t seem to understand. To paraphrase, “What’s the problem? Don’t you understand that these were _Kurds_ who got gassed?” At the time, I found that attitude completely inexplicable. Fast forward a few months; we’ve incited the Kurds and Shia to rise up and overthrow Saddam. They didn’t, of course, while such an uprising would have looked difficult and might have done us some good. Oh, no; instead the Shia – whose rebellion was spontaneous, anyway – waited until it looked like the Iraqi Army was crushed and such an uprising would be easy. The Kurds – who were organized – waited even longer. Sorry, boys, but when we offer you a quid pro quo, that doesn’t translate into “free lunch.” Moreover, when we’ve already offered someone a cease*fire it’s a bit late to try to get us to start hostilities again. In short, we owed them nothing. Fast forward, again, to late May, 1991. I’d come home from the Middle East, hung around a while, and been sent back, this time to Operation Provide Comfort, the Kurdish Rescue, there to quasi govern a few towns, run refugee camps, coordinate humanitarian relief, and such like. While we’re waiting in the camp on the Turkish side of the border, not too far from Silopi, overwatched by a Turkish police fort on a hill, some Kurds got in position to fire at the fort such that, should the fort return fire, the Turks will be shooting at us. So much for gratitude from people you’re trying to save, eh? Fortunately, Turkish discipline held firm and enlightened Kurdish dreams of advancing the cause of having a homeland of their own by getting their rescuers killed came to naught. After a couple of days at the camp, the crew I’m with and I are ordered forward to link up with the British Marines and their Dutch counterparts, already inside Kurdestan. We’re riding in on the back of a British Bedford Lorry, one which, based on the comfort of the ride, probably crossed the Rhine with Monty in 1945…after enduring the entire war in North Africa. If it had a suspension it was tolerably hard to see, and impossible to feel.

    Everyone already knows that Columbus was a literal Hitler from the 15th century and that all woke people celebrate Indigenous Peoples’ Day instead. But what you may not know is that there is a proper way to celebrate the holiday. It shouldn’t have to be said but if you celebrate IPD by getting drunk and wearing a mariachi hat, you’re doing it wrong. Save that noise for fake indigenous holidays like Cinco de Mayo. You could raze your city to the ground if it’s named after a colonizer, but the real way to celebrate Indigenous Peoples’ Day is by sacrificing one of your neighbors, preferably someone deep in debt and no prospects of paying it off (eg college grad with a gender studies degree). California cities will be setting the bar high this year with Governor Gavin Newsom acting as chief priest doing the majority of the slaying. “Human sacrifice is nothing new to me,” Gov. Newsom, who is a ardent supporter of Planned Parenthood, said. “I’m just new to wearing all that feather headdress stuff.” While most Aztec sacrifices were made to the god of war, woke Californians will be sacrificing these poor saps to the climate god. There will be icons of Greta Thunberg surrounding the altar. https://genesiustimes.com/california-to-celebrate-indigenous-peoples-day-by-sacrificing-living-humans-to-climate-god/

    Mexican officials broke up a caravan of around 2,000 migrants that had set out from southern Mexico Saturday in the hopes of reaching the United States, amid increasing difficulty obtaining permission to pass through Mexico. The group trudged about 24 miles ( 40 kilometers) northwest along a highway under the supervision of human rights officials before federal police and national guardsmen blocked their path. An Associated Press photographer saw hundreds of men, women and children running to escape the security forces encircling them in Huixtla, Chiapas. They were rounded up and placed in vans. Officials refused to say where they were transporting the migrants. The migrants have engaged in scuffles with police at the Tapachula immigration offices in recent weeks. Mexico says they can stay in southern Mexico, or leave by the southern border, but the migrants want documents that will allow them to reach the northern border. Mexico frequently repatriates, by plane, migrants from countries such as Cuba and Honduras.
