John Clore, Duke and friends. Photo by Jennifer Kneuss

While working on this week's forthcoming column, I came across the story below about Duke, the bomb-sniffing dog and companion of the late Lance Cpl. Peter Clore. I wrote about Lance Cpl. Clore, who was killed in action in May 2011, in this column

The Marines turned over their last base in Afghanistan earlier this week, but that doesn't mean the war ends, as this March 20, 2013 story by Jennifer Kneuss, tells us.

"Fallen Marine's Bomb-Sniffing Dog Comes Home to New Phila":

IDD Marine Corporal Duke is home, honorably discharged after a several years of brave and valiant service in the U.S....

From the Facebook Page of David Rustebakke, a veterinarian in Clarkston, WA:

The present Ebola crisis in the world is frightening. I have submitted the following letter to the editor of the Lewiston Morning Tribune:

Editor, Lewiston Morning Tribune:

If I wish to import a horse into the United States from Liberia or any African country other than Morocco, the horse needs to undergo a 60 day quarantine period at a USDA approved quarantine facility prior to mingling with the general population of horses in this country. Africa has a disease called African Horse Sickness that does not exist in the US; this is the way we have kept it out of this country. African Horse Sickness does not cause disease in people, only horses; our government has determined that...

EuroCanada graphic: "Screening of sickle cell disease in newborn babies in mainland France from 2005 to 2013. The values are per region and in percent of the total number born that year. As this genetic illness is mostly confined to non-Europeans, primarily Africans, the ethnic origin of newborns can be derived from the data (see below for sources; map composed by FDesouche)."     



Via Galliawatch, a stunning study by Falko Baumgartner published at EuroCanada about the "Africanization" of France. Bottom line: In the past 13 years, the percentage of babies born in France to at least one non-European parent has grown from about one-fifth to more than one-third.

From Military Times:

Marines in Afghanistan handed over the Corps’ last remaining base there to Afghan National Army troops Sunday, marking the official end of the service’s primary work in support of the war. 

Camp Leatherneck in Afghanistan's Helmand province and the ajacent British airfield, Camp Bastion, were both transferred from International Security Assistance Force control to Afghan authority in a ceremony attended by Marine, U.K., and Afghan military leaders.

The transfer marks the close of the NATO and allied war mission in Regional Command Southwest, overseeing Helmand and Nimroz provinces. It also represent the start of a more rapid withdrawal for the Marines remaining in Afghanistan. According to the Washington Post,...

One space-limited syndicated column couldn't do justice to my interview with Geert Wilders this week, so here is the full, uncut version that ran at Breitbart News.

I am sitting with Geert Wilders, leader of the Netherlands’ Party for Freedom, and the news has just flashed that Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, the Canadian convert to Islam who terrorized Ottawa on Wednesday, had previously had his passport lifted by the Canadian government as an officially designated “high-risk traveller.” 

That means that before Zehaf-Bibeau put a bullet through the heart of Cpl. Nathan Cirillo, a young reservist standing guard with an unloaded rifle at the...

The following is the text of a speech Dutch MP and leader of the Netherlands' Party for Freedom delivered in Nashville on October 21 on behalf of the new International Freedom Alliance to stop the Islamization of the free world. 

Dear friends,

Thank you for attending this very important meeting.

It is great to be back in Tennessee, the Volunteer State.

I am traveling from Los Angeles to DC, but I insisted on coming to Tennessee for a very good reason.

Two centuries ago, General Andrew Jackson was tasked with raising an army to liberate New Orleans. When he sent the call out to Tennessee,  five times the number expected from your State showed up. The Tennessean Volunteers were noted for their valor in combat.

Many things change in two centuries, but the volunteer spirit and the valor of Tennessee has not. That is why I am here tonight.

The Weekly Standard says the 1950s case of Pvt. David Schine "mirrors"  that of Esn. Hunter Biden's. Really? Or is this a case of McCarthymania?  

---

A recent post in the Australian blog Law of Markets begins:

There is, for some reason, a desire on the right to continuously play into the hands of the left on Joe McCarthy....

Yes, you can say that again. This perverse desire is hardwired into the American reflex to a point of scuttling rational appraisals of the man and, to my way of thinking, his exceptionally brave and patriotic efforts to penetrate the federal jungle and expose some of the many hundreds of Soviet agents and ideological Communists who covertly infiltrated the government during the Roosevelt/Truman administrations. McCarthy was quite successful it turns out, once you starting counting up the agents and Communists his committee investigated -- as the nation's pre-eminent McCarthy expert M. Stanton Evans recently did here. America, however, has been relentlessly conditioned to see McCarthy as evil incarnate -- far worse than any Hiss or White, two of the most prominent federal employees (and Soviet agents) whose perfidy led to the deaths of millions of people, including tens of thousands of Americans.

In the harum-scarum effort to rouse the West from the stupor induced by the Sleep-eze Elite to see the Islamic threat, some people run for office and live in state security bubbles, some people draw cartoons and require police protection, some people publish newspapers and get shot at, some people lecture and get fired or sued, some people go to court and defend them, some people lead think tanks, some people run blogs, some people make videos in many languages, some people write books and essays, some people run ads on metro buses.

John L. Work, a longtime friend of this blog, writes short thrillers that show people what it might well be like in this country in the not-so-distant future.

Today, John's latest effort, A Summons to Perdition 2, is out. Enter into his imagination here. It...

This week's syndicated column

Do you get the feeling the United States government is trying to get us all killed?

OK, not all of us. Some of us.

I almost don’t know how else to interpret the headlines, whether it’s the 167,000 convicted criminal aliens who, despite deportation orders, remain “currently at large,” or it’s the U.S. consulates in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea that are still issuing travel visas to citizens from these Ebola-stricken nations at a rate of 100 per day.

The White House refusal to exercise elementary precautions to prevent an Ebola outbreak in the United States has become another notorious hallmark of the Obama years. I refer to the administration’s failure to prohibit travel from the Ebola-stricken region into our formerly Ebola-free...

Gates of Vienna has published a new essay, posted below, that sets American Betrayal into a novel historical perspective.

Baron Bodissey writes: Regular readers know JLH as our German translator, but he occasionally ventures into original commentary. The essay below connects the dots between Diana West’s American Betrayal and the current Islamization of the Western world.

It Depends on What the Meaning of IS Is"

This is about American Betrayal being not only a critical remembrance of things past,...

This week's syndicated column:  

About a dozen news cycles ago, Americans seemed horrified by the border crisis – horrified by the tens of thousands of illegal aliens, many of them minors, crashing across the southern border.

These aliens were heading not into no man’s land and then deportation, but straight into the United States of Obamaland, an awaiting federal superstructure where travel, housing, health care, education, legal aid and even “amnesty” were promised for all, probably forever, and gratis. It’s hard not to see this ongoing episode as a federally organized invasion of the nation paid for by the U.S. taxpayer.

And now? The focus has weakened since the feds and their federally financed “religious charities” dispersed many thousands of border-crashers across the country. The “national crisis” story has fractured into innumerable local stories about classroom chaos as teachers grapple...

Yesterday, American Betrayal, a.k.a. Wielkie Klamstwa Amerykicame out in Poland. Here are a couple of snapshots that Andrjez Findeisen, my Polish publisher, kindly sent in from bookstores in Warsaw.

 



At the end of August, Judicial Watch reported that ISIS elements were operating in Juarez, right across the border from El Paso, TX, and that high-level federal law enforcement, intelligence and other sources had confirmed that a warning bulletin for an imminent terrorist attack on the border had been issued.

Now, after the August 27 arrest in Chicago of Emad Karakrah, a convicted sex felon and former FBI informant believed to be a logistics and transportation operative for Islamic terror groups, and the August arrest in El Paso of Hector Pedroz Huerta, a Karakrah associate and illegal alien believed (among other crimes) to have...

Fjordman writes in today, calling attention to "the face of Eurabia" -- the Islamic Europe identified and explicated by the great historian of dhimmitude Bat Ye'or, and which has now achieved critical mass before our eyes.

The story that American Betrayal brings to light continues to catch on. Sometimes it catches fire immediately; sometimes it lights a fuse. Sometimes the book interupts the coursing brain waves of the fixed consensus, entering the conventional pageantry, the non-conforming intruder. Suddenly, the old lore isn't sufficient, isn't making sense, isn't even comforting anymore. Then along comes something such as 14 hours of "The Roosevelts" on PBS by Ken Burns, and the "court history,"  playing America's heartstrings with every Pavolovian prompt, is re-engraved on our mass cultural core -- even the camera passes right over the...

After the US entered a military alliance with the Soviet dictatorship in December 1941, Harper & Brothers' Cass Canfield (left) called back already distributed review copies of Trotsky's biography of Stalin and later withdrew My Year in the USSR by New York Times correspondent G. E. R. Gedye. Doubleday, Doran canceled the spring 1942 publication of One Who Survived, the reminiscences of ex-Soviet diplomat and military officer Alexander Barmine. Random House's Bennett Cerf (right) proposed that the American publishing industry withdraw from sale all books critical of the Soviet Union. None were published until after the war ended.

This week's syndicated column

Common sense and love of country dictate that air travel to the United States from the West African Ebola hot-zone nations of Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone be suspended until the highly contagious, highly lethal Ebola outbreak is over. That’s obvious. Thousands of travel visas issued by the U.S. to nationals in these same countries should be canceled. That’s obvious, too.

But President Obama isn’t taking such obvious measures to safeguard the American people. On the contrary, the administration is doing nothing to prevent Ebola from entering this country, even after the first case erupted on American soil in a Liberian tourist named Thomas Eric Duncan. Last month, Duncan, knowingly exposed to Ebola himself, traveled to Dallas from Monrovia, Liberia, with layovers in Brussels and Washington, D.C. Now, he is in an isolation ward in a Dallas hospital as health officials...

Amsterdam Jewish schools get military police protection Thursday 02 October 2014

Several Jewish schools in Amsterdam's Buitenveldert district are being guarded by military police officers and have been for the past month, the Parool said on Thursday.

Four police officers in full uniform are on duty at the entrance of the orthodox Cheider school, while Maimonides and Rosj Pina have similar protection, the paper says. The street...

Patriots of the nations of the world, you're through. It's one-world-time, sez the globalists. But it will be beautiful, according to  Fareed Zakaria GPS and former Israel PM Peres.

Fareed speaks with former Israel Prime Minister Shimon Peres about the growth of terrorist groups in the Middle East:

Do you believe that as a result of this, relations with this common enemy of terrorism, relations between Israel and the Arab countries and Middle Eastern countries are inevitably going to get better?

Peres: Undoubtedly, in my eyes.  You know, we live in a global world. I don't, I'm not sure that globality had it in mind or planned it. The fact is, the globality put an end to racism. You cannot be global and racist. Finished. You cannot be global and even nationalistic. Finished. Globality...
