‘Known Wolf’* Hunting In Paris Today Is Part Of A HUGE Pack Of Jihadis

EU, Europe, Islam, Jihad, Natural Law, Terrorism

As I observed in “Life With Islam And Its Enablers”:

Be it Stockholm, St. Petersburg, Paris, Nice, Brussels, Berlin; Orlando, or San Bernardino—the men with mass murder on their minds are Muslim, often with criminal records or with a sudden heightened interest in Islam. That risk factor, Islam, is unacknowledged. Its followers are ignored, seldom stopped, and generally dismissed as misguided by the very intelligence agencies

The attack in Paris, April 20, saw “a police officer killed and two others seriously injured when a gunman opened fire late Thursday on the famed Champs-Élysées in Paris before he was shot dead, officials said.”

The Islamic State group quickly claimed responsibility for the attack.
French prosecutors have opened a terrorism investigation into the attack on the officers, which took place at 8:50 p.m. local time.
Paris Prosecutor Francois Molins said authorities have identified the 39-year-old gunman but did not name him publicly. Officials are still assessing whether he had accomplices, he said.
Molins said the gunman used an assault rifle, and at least one location in the eastern Paris suburbs is being searched as officials work to learn more information about the attacker.
“The identity of the attacker is known and has been checked,” he said. “I will not give it because investigations with raids are ongoing.”
In a statement from its Amaq news agency, ISIS named the attacker Abu Yousef Al-Baljiki, “The Belgian,” adding that he was “one of the Islamic State fighters.”

The claim of responsibility came unusually swiftly for the group, which has been losing territory in Iraq and Syria. It also referred to the attacker as one of the “fighters,” rather than the “soldiers” of the Islamic State.

As Catherine Herridge has reported, French intelligence sits on a terror list 10,000 strong. Naturally, the list gives rise to no deportations: Citizenship for Jihadis before the right to life for innocent French.

* The term “known wolf” was coined by Patrick Poole, but other pundits appropriate it. I hate that, because I know how it feels.

Population Exchange: Say Europeans Leave, 3rd World Migrants Take Over

Africa, America, EU, Europe, IMMIGRATION, Intelligence, The West

A thought experiment: Say evil Westerners were to just give up. We’ve had enough of being put upon and blamed for the evil and dysfunction of the world. Let’s agree to a population exchange. Here, miserable third-world migrants. Take America and Europe. We’ve had it with your dysfunction and deviance. You, sacred migrants and your liberal, philosophical concubines; in governments and NGOs: Take our countries. We’ll take your ramshackle lands on one condition: You and your liberal bedfellows are never to come near us ever again.

After a few decades, maybe half a century, the new abodes of Westerners will have flourished, Europe and America will look like Africa does today.

Quod erat demonstrandum. Q.E.D. (“that which was to be proven”). Or close.

UPDATED: An ‘Ebullient’ President-Elect Who Cares About The Constitution As A Timeless Document

Barack Obama, Constitution, Donald Trump, EU, Europe, Founding Fathers, IMMIGRATION, Individual Rights, Natural Law

Our magnificent President-elect Donald Trump spoke to libertarian Judge Andrew Napolitano about constitutional originalists—who is; who isn’t—and the meaning of the Constitution.

Mr. Trump also asked Judge Napolitano about how you stop The Bureaucracy from legislating. As you all know, we live under a Managerial State, where the bureaucracy has vast discretion to pass and enforce laws that are never vetted by our so-called law-makers and representatives. These cockroaches have allowed it.

The Chevron Doctrine:

Did Barack Obama ever make such an inquiry? No. Barack Obama was not in the habit of hiding how he felt about the US Constitution. As much as he disliked the philosophical foundations of the republic, the president seemed to know a bit about the intent. Here’s Senator Barack Obama talking about the document Republicans seldom mention and Democrats deem dated:

… as radical as I think people try to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn’t that radical. It didn’t break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the founding fathers in the Constitution … generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties. Says what the states can’t do to you. Says what the Federal government can’t do to you, but doesn’t say what the Federal government or State government must do on your behalf, and that hasn’t shifted and one of the, I think, tragedies of the civil rights movement was, um, because the civil rights movement became so court-focused I think there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalition of powers through which you bring about redistributive change. In some ways we still suffer from that. I’m not optimistic about bringing about major redistributive change through the courts. You know, the institution just isn’t structured that way.

The president recognized and rejected “the Constitution as a charter of negative liberties.” Because of the obstacles the Constitution poses to “redistributive justice,” community organizing à la Obama aims at achieving extra-constitutional change.

MORE GREATNESS FROM TRUMP:

EU Commissars Move To Control Ireland-Apple Tax Transactions

Business, EU, Europe, States' Rights, Taxation

And EU countries, most of which bitched about Brexit, wonder why they’re a morass of joblessness and welfare. The EU’s Great Centralizers in Brussels are looking to override Ireland’s tax arrangement with Apple, arrangements Ireland ought to be free to make as an ostensibly sovereign country. EU tax collectors don’t want Ireland to be free to grant Apple certain tax provisions that would enhance prosperity—jobs and investment—in Ireland.

Wait a second, wasn’t Ireland overwhelmingly against Brexit and for Britain remaining in the EU?

Don’t the Irish get that this is what union with EU commissars looks like?
