Sure that's hate speech, don't you know

‘Irish Lives Matter’ Graffiti Treated As ‘Hate Incident’.

The Police Service of Northern Ireland is treating graffiti in West Belfast reading “Irish Lives Matter” as a hate incident. Signs declaring residents “will no longer accept the re-housing of illegal immigrants” were erected on Tuesday in the neighborhood. The graffiti appeared shortly there-after according to reports.

“We are treating the matter as a hate incident,” said Inspector Andrew Matson. “Our local Neighbourhood Policing Team have been undertaking enquiries in the area and anyone who has any information in regard to the erection of the notices is asked to contact police,” he added.

Gerry Carroll, who represents West Belfast in the Northern Ireland Assembly, called the graffiti “racist poison.”

Northern Ireland falls under the UK’s immigration laws, but the Republic of Ireland – which is most of the island – does not. Last week, citizens of the Republic rioted in Dublin after a migrant stabbed a five-year-old boy, a five-year-old girl, a six-year-old girl, and a woman in her thirties near a local school.

Political leaders have done little to stem the flow of migrants from Africa, Ukraine, and the Middle East into the country, with 125,000 arriving in the last year. “Ireland’s probably one of the worst if, if not the worst, because the political class has totally sold out,” former Trump advisor Stephen K. Bannon said in a recent interview regarding the Irish government’s embrace of open border policies.

Bannon said the embrace of mass third-world immigration by European Union member states has sparked a ‘backlash’ among native Europeans as they increasingly realize they’re being displaced in their own countries. As to the motivations of the European political elite, he said: “The Germans and the people in Brussels, the Party of Davos, just doesn’t think the working class European population is very controllable. They think they’re dangerous.”

It is too bad that this imbecile has been elected mayor of Chicago


JUST IN: Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson lashes out and blames "right wing extremists" for Chicago's problems and says Republicans are mad that black people are free. The left always blames others for the problems they create. Instead of taking responsibility for the failed liberal policies, Johnson claimed Chicago was "targeted" by Republicans. "What we've seen is a very raggedy form of right-wing extremism. Everyone knows that the right-wing extremism in this country has targeted democratically run cities and quite frankly and they have been quite intentional about going after democratically ran cities that are led by people of color." "It's the same Republican right-wing extremism that stormed the capital, its the same right wing extremism that refuses to accept the results of the civil war. Its raggedy its disrespectful, its mean spirited." "They're still mad that a black man is free in this country."

Irish MMA superstar Conor McGregor is subject to an ongoing investigation by Ireland’s national police service, Garda Síochána over tweets posted in relation to the Dublin riots last week, which erupted after a stabbing incident involving a man of Algerian descent.

The Irish police, led by assistant commissioner Justin Kelly, are now investigating McGregor’s tweets as part of a probe into online hate speech according to the Times. The fighter has been vocal in the immigration debate, particularly following the murder of teacher Ashling Murphy by a Slovakian labourer, demanding a new task force to monitor entrants into Ireland.

Ireland learned the hard way.

The Irish are taking their country back!

UFC star Conor McGregor has backed members of the public protesting after three small children and a woman were stabbed by an immigrant in Dublin, Ireland.

McGregor said the stabber should face “[t]orture and death” and slammed an Irish Timesjournalist accused of branding anti-immigration protests far-right. Describing the reporter as the “absolute picture of weak and feeble,” McGregor warned: “In a war you are nothing. We are not backing down, we are only warming up.”

Addressing journalists keen to dismiss concerns over mass immigration as far-right, the former two-weight world champion wrote that after “[o]ne of the most horrific crimes this nation ever seen has occurred, we do not care anymore what you sad cases have got to say.”

“There will be no backing down until real change is implemented for the safety of our nation,” McGregor continued.

“We are not losing any more of our wom[e]n and children to sick and twisted people who should not even be in Ireland in the first place. Call it what you want. We do not care.”

Ireland Riots Spiral Out Of Control After Alleged Migrant Stabs Children

Conor McGregor Rails Against Irish Police Commissioner Following Dublin Riots: ‘NOT GOOD ENOUGH’

AP Photo/John Locher

MMA fighter Conor McGregor had some harsh words for Irish Police Commissioner Drew Harris on Thursday after riots broke out in Dublin over a knife attack which left several children injured.

Speaking to reporters, Harris condemned the “disgraceful scenes” in Dublin, which he blamed on a “hooligan faction driven by far-right ideology.”

On the stabbing incident which sparked the riots, Harris said, “I’m not going to speculate any further in respect of a terrorist motive. Until we’re sure what the motive is, we have to keep an open mind as to why this happened.”

Reacting on social media to Harris’ remarks, McGregor wrote:

Innocent children ruthlessly stabbed by a mentally deranged non-national in Dublin, Ireland today. Our chief of police had this to say on the riots in the aftermath. Drew, not good enough. There is grave danger among us in Ireland that should never be here in the first place, and there has been zero action done to support the public in any way, shape or form with this frightening fact. NOT GOOD ENOUGH. Make change or make way. Ireland for the victory 🇮🇪 God bless those attacked today, we pray 🙏

How the Democratic Party Faked an American Insurrection

By Robert Bridge
Strategic Culture

November 24, 2023

Last week, more than 40,000 hours of Jan. 6 Capitol Police security footage was released in the public domain that once and for all blew a hole in the pro-Trump ‘violent insurrection’ narrative so dear to the Democrats.

The one question on countless Americans’ minds following the release of the damning videos was: will all those men and women recently locked away as political prisoners for dozens of decades get another day in court? Indeed, January 6 may have been a lot of things to many people, but another Boston Tea Party it most definitely was not.

A NTSB Preliminary Finding on a Saturday evening? Something may not be right here

It did not take this train traveling at 26 MPH, with 38 people on board, 1,780 feet to stop. A more likely cause would be the failure to brake in time. So why the rush to judgement?

CTA Yellow Line crash caused by ‘design issue,’ National Transportation Safety Board says
The train should have had more room to stop, according to National Transportation Safety Board chair Jennifer Homendy.

Chicago Fire Department and Chicago Police Department personnel triage patients at the scene after a Chicago Transit Authority train crashed into a piece of equipment that was on the rails near the Howard CTA station on the North Side, Thursday, Nov. 16, 2023.

A crash on the CTA’s Yellow Line that injured 38 people when a train slammed into snow removal equipment on Thursday was caused by a “design issue,” according to an official with the National Transportation Safety Board.

Board chair Jennifer Homendy told reporters Saturday night the train’s braking distance should have been longer.

The train was going 26.9 miles-per-hour when it struck snow removal equipment that was on the tracks while employees were conducting training for the winter season, Homendy said the preliminary findings of an investigation showed.

At that speed, the train was designed to be able to stop within 1,780 feet of an object it its path, but didn’t, she said.

“That’s essentially an old design,” she said.

Plan proposed to reduce excessive traffic stops of Black, Brown motorists
In July 2022, an annual study of traffic and pedestrian stops concluded Black motorists are 1.7 times more likely to be stopped than white drivers. Hispanic drivers in Chicago were 2.5 times more likely to be stopped.
By Fran Spielman

A biased 2022 study found Black and Brown motorists are far more likely to be pulled over than white motorists.

The Chicago Police Department was urged Monday to rein in so-called “pre-textual” traffic stops that disproportionately target Black and Hispanic motorists and exacerbate distrust by “fishing” without any actual reason to suspect criminal violations.

In July 2022, an annual study of traffic and pedestrian stops conducted by the American Civil Liberties Union concluded Chicago police targeted African Americans in 63% of traffic stops in 2021, though Black residents are less than 30% of the city’s population.

“Continued racial inequities” in stops and searches mean that compared to white drivers in Chicago, Black motorists were 1.7 times more likely to be stopped, and Hispanic drivers were 2.5 times more likely to be stopped.

You don't have to like Trump but there is something wrong

 Trump Trial

Threats to the United States now at a Whole New Level

It turns out that nations do not stumble into wars and conflict. Wars are generally the result of globalist forces with ulterior motives or political leaders who seek to shore up and protect their political position by demonizing a target, like Russia, and then rallying the people’s support around the enemy of that target, like Ukraine, in the name of patriotism and American interests.

The American people are wising up after spending $8 trillion over some twenty years in the so-called war against terror in the Middle East in Iraq and Afghanistan -- protracted engagements that cost lives and ended in failure, often creating resentment from the native people we were purportedly trying to help. In 2001, the year of 9/11 that triggered the war on terror, total U.S. national debt stood at about $3.4 trillion. Today U.S. national debt has grown by 10-fold to $34 trillion.

The permanent elite in Washington recently assured the American people (with no discussion or accounting for costs) that the U.S. military could fund and prevail in a two-front war -- one against Russia in the European theater to defend Ukraine; and the second against China in the Pacific theater to defend Taiwan.

Eric Adams had cellphones, iPad seized by FBI as part of corruption investigation

The FBI seized Mayor Eric Adams’ electronics early this week as part of a federal corruption probe tied to his 2021 campaign, The Post has learned.

The feds seized the devices in connection to an investigation into whether Hizzoner’s campaign colluded with the Turkish government and others to direct money into his mayoral effort, sources told The Post, after the news was first reported by the New York Times.

Agents reportedly approached Adams, 63, on the street and asked his security team to step aside, a source told the Time.

The agents then got into Adams’ SUV with him and executed a court-authorized warrant to seize his devices — including at least two cellphones and an iPad.

The electronics were returned to the mayor within a few days, the sources said.

Biden’s border catastrophe could well be the ruination of America.

Of all the bad things Biden has done the one that will bite us hardest is leaving the border unprotected. America’s next war won’t be in Ukraine or Israel or Taiwan. Our next war will be on American soil against the enemy soldiers Biden let into the country.

Denlesks needs to expand his horizons. The prospect is that there won’t be an either/or. Chances are, we’ll be slugging it out somewhere overseas while having to kill foreign enemies at home. In fact, I’d bet on it.

Denlesks may be focusing on the untold number of Islamic terrorists now in the country thanks to the generosity of progressives, who pull corrupt old Joe’s strings. Open borders are part of their globalist creed. But let’s also give a big shoutout to cheap-labor Republicans for pitching in. More gets done quickly with the help of those idiots.

Another Bank Bites the Dust!

Citizens Bank was a small bank in Iowa with about $66 million in assets. Its loan portfolio consisted largely of commercial and industrial loans.

Well, this past Friday the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) announced that Citizens Bank had failed due to significant hidden loan losses totaling about $15 million.

Because Citizens Bank was not a member of FDIC, the bank’s losses will be the responsibility of the state of Iowa.

This is the sixth notable bank failure this year. As you might recall, the first five were Silicon Valley Bank (back in March), Silvergate Bank (a bridge from the crypto world), Signature Bank (another crypto conduit to the regular banking world), First Republic Bank and the giant Credit Suisse.

I warned in March that the failure of Silicon Valley Bank would be just the start. Now we’ve had five additional bank failures.

And this latest failure won’t be the last.

Veterans of such crises (and I include myself in that category) know that once the dominoes start falling, they keep falling until some government intervention of a particularly draconian kind is imposed.

We’ve seen some significant regulatory actions from the Federal Reserve, the FDIC, the U.S. Treasury and the Swiss National Bank, but the fixes have been temporary and followed quickly by new failures.

The FDIC abandoned its $250,000 deposit insurance limit and effectively guaranteed all the depositors in Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank, a guarantee of over $200 billion in deposits. This has impacted the FDIC insurance fund and required higher insurance premiums from solvent banks, the cost of which is ultimately borne by consumers (you).

The Federal Reserve went further and offered to lend money at par for any government securities tendered as collateral by member banks even if the collateral was worth only 80% or 90% of par. These collateralized loans are financed with newly printed money, which might exceed $1 trillion.

These actions have thrown the U.S. banking system and bank depositors into utter confusion. Are all bank deposits now insured or just the ones Janet Yellen decides are “systemically important”? What’s the basis for that decision? What about the fact that unrealized losses on U.S. bank portfolios of government securities now exceed $700 billion?

If those losses are realized to provide cash to fleeing depositors, it could wipe out much of the capital of the banking system.

Unrealized losses on securities held by FDIC-insured banks exceed $620 billion. That’s the amount of bank capital that would be wiped out if the banks were forced to sell those securities to meet demands from depositors who wanted their money back.

That would cause additional bank failures and continue the panic that began in March indefinitely.

We’re not out of the woods, and the confusion will continue.

What’s important to bear in mind is that crises of this type are not over in days or weeks.

A slow-motion rolling panic that takes a year or longer is more typical.

The 1998 crisis reached the acute stage on Sept. 28, 1998, just before the rescue of LTCM. We were hours away from the sequential shutdown of every stock and bond exchange in the world.

But that crisis began in June 1997 with the devaluation of the Thai baht and massive capital flight from Asia and then Russia. It took 15 months to go from a serious crisis to an existential threat.

Likewise, the 2008 crisis reached the acute stage on Sept. 15, 2008, with the bankruptcy filing of Lehman Bros. But that crisis began in the spring of 2007 when HSBC surprised markets with an announcement that mortgage losses had exceeded expectations.

It then continued through the summer of 2007 with the failures of two Bear Steans high-yield mortgage funds, and the closure of a Société Générale money market fund. The panic then caused the failures of Bear Stearns (March 2008), Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (June 2008) and other institutions before reaching Lehman Bros.

For that matter, the panic continued after Lehman to include AIG, General Electric, the commercial paper market and General Motors before finally subsiding on March 9, 2009. Starting with the HSBC announcement, the subprime mortgage panic and domino effects lasted 24 months from March 2007 to March 2009.

Averaging our two examples (1998, 2008) the average duration of these financial crises is about 20 months. Since this crisis began in March (eight months ago), it could have a long way to run.

In other words, crises can unfold for a long time before they’re finally squashed by massive regulatory intervention.

Get ready for more bank failures.

I’ve written a lot about what I call Biden Bucks. That’s my term for the central bank digital currency (CBDC) the government is currently preparing.

What does the ongoing banking crisis have to do with Biden Bucks? Well, plenty, as it turns out.

Read on to see why…

Bank Runs, Biden Bucks and Money Jail

By Jim Rickards

Whether an account is in CBDC or a regular checking account doesn’t make that much difference. Bank runs today are no different than in the 1930s from a behavioral perspective.

It’s all about lost confidence, fear, not wanting to be the last person out of a burning building, rumors, word of mouth and a host of psychological factors that are part of human nature.

That part hasn’t changed since at least the 14th century with the failure of the Bardi and Peruzzi banks around 1345. What has changed is technology. Marshall McLuhan said in the 1960s that in the global village, everyone knows everything at the same time. He was right. That means when a bank run begins, there’s an immediate reaction.

The difference with the 1930s is that you don’t line up around the corner and wait for the chance to demand cash from the teller. You take out your iPhone, make a few taps and, whether it’s Venmo or a wire transfer, the money is on its way out the door.

Whether you’re a retail depositor with $1,000 or a maven with $8 billion, everyone was online moving money all at once. In that sense, CBDCs don’t matter much. Whether it’s CBDC, Venmo, wire transfer or cash from an ATM, everyone is cashing out at the same time via digital channels. But there is one huge impact of CBDCs that is entirely new and sets them apart from what’s described above…

CBDCs are programmable and controlled by the government.

This means when a run develops, the government can stop the run just by freezing CBDC account transfers. They can even claw back earlier transfers. Since the government controls the CBDC ledger, they can see where the early withdrawals went and simply reinstate them on the account of the failing bank and debit them from the accounts of the transferees. The government can do this with a few keystrokes because they see everything.

This means that once Biden Bucks is implemented, you’re locked into a system controlled by the government. You’re in a money jail.

There’s no point even starting a bank run because the government can track your movements and put the money back where it started. It’s one of many ways that Biden Bucks gives the government total control of your money and can monitor your thoughts and movements.

Cash is likely to be eliminated sooner rather than later in order to pave the way for the dominance of central bank digital currencies. A U.S. dollar CBDC is coming soon. Cash will have to be eliminated to force individuals into the CBDC world. For better or worse, the only way citizens will be able to avoid the mandatory use of CBDCs will be to use gold, silver or cryptocurrencies.

I put comparisons of gold (and silver) and Bitcoin in the same category as comparing fish and bicycles. You can do it, but what’s the point? Gold is money and Bitcoin is a hallucinogen;(or more precisely an acoustic hypnotic spell).

The idea that the U.S. Treasury, Fed and other mainstream monetary institutions are hostile to crypto is absolutely correct. For 10 years they have taken the view that they don’t like it but don’t know what to do about it. Now they know.

The solution is to kill it.

Of course, Bitcoin and other cryptos have their own ecosystem of exchanges, derivatives, custodians, payment channels, tickers, etc., etc. But so what? Cryptos are like chips in a casino.

You can make money or lose money gambling with the chips. But if you walk outside with chips in your pocket, they’re worthless.

You can change tables at the casino but you can’t leave the casino. Chips only have value inside. If you want to spend money outside, you have to visit the cashier first to cash in your chips. The cashier is the portal from the crypto world to the real world of money.

That’s why the FDIC took over Signature Bank on Sunday, March 12, when they shut down Silicon Valley Bank. Signature Bank was no worse off than a lot of other banks. If it had survived until Monday, March 13, it would have been rescued by the Federal Reserve’s Bank Term Funding Program (BTFP) along with the entire U.S. banking system. Why did Signature Bank get whacked under those circumstances?

Signature Bank got whacked because it was offering a portal to the crypto world called Signet. Once the FDIC announced a blanket deposit guarantee and the Fed offered an unlimited ability to swap bonds for cash at par, Signature would have been fine like any other bank.

Yellen used a panicked weekend to wipe out the Signet portal. As Rahm Emanuel said, never let a crisis go to waste. This is one example of how crypto is getting strangled globally. CBDCs are being set up to replace cryptos as a digital currency.

As for gold, you can manipulate the price for short periods of time by dumping gold, painting the tape, acting in concert, etc. But those techniques are not sustainable (unless you want to sell all your gold, in which case you end up with no gold and the market still goes its way).

The London Gold Pool price rigging agreement collapsed in 1968. British Chancellor of the Exchequer Gordon Brown sold almost half of the U.K.’s gold in 1999 at a near 50-year low, a notorious effort at price manipulation known as Brown’s Bottom.

Both are good examples of how manipulation always fails in the end. The government could try a replay of FDR’s gold confiscation from 1933, but it won’t work this time because there’s no trust in the government’s promises.

There are many reasons for this. No one trusts the government today, whereas in 1933 there was a belief that FDR knew what he was doing and was trying to end the Great Depression. COVID is a good example of how people were lied to about vaccines, masks, etc.

The rule today is “Don’t get fooled again.’ No one will surrender their gold except perhaps the people still wearing masks. But they probably don’t have any gold to begin with.

The other reason gold confiscation won’t work is that gold is not fixed in price as it was in 1933. Very few saw the dollar devaluation from $20/oz to $35/oz of gold coming that FDR orchestrated in 1933.

That gold price increase (really a dollar devaluation) wasn’t announced until months after the confiscation. It was the ultimate in insider trading organized by FDR. Informed citizens won’t fall for that a second time.

In a non-pegged market as we have today, the crisis will come first and gold will go to $5,000 or $10,000 per ounce or higher before the government gets around to an attempted confiscation. By that point the damage is done and gold owners have their winnings.

How should everyday Americans evaluate the crisis choice between gold and cryptos as alternatives to the dollar? Ask the following questions:

Can crypto get whacked by governments? Yes. Can gold be manipulated in the long-run? No.

Those questions and answers really answer the bigger question of how to survive the collapse of the dollar.

Gold works. Crypto doesn’t. ‘Nuff said.
