Why Hofer lost: Two views

Published by carolyn on Wed, 2016-12-07 14:07

Did the candidate go too soft or was the electorate too indoctrinated?

Pegida's Lutz Bachmann on Monday advised anti-immigration candidates to make a sharp distinction from the establishment and to "Be like Trump" in order to win.


Below is an unedited automatic Google translation from yesterday's article in the Epoch Times titled “Call the police for a strike!”: Pegida boss Bachmann appeals to Ranier Wendt”.

Lutz Bachmann delivered a speech in Dresden yesterday. The head of the controversial citizens' movement Pegida demanded a strike of the police in Germany.

Norbert Hofer had lost Austria because he had become too soft, Bachmann said in his speech. This is a mistake that many conservative and patriotic forces make - they would over time mitigate their cleverness, hoping, however, to allow some of their opponents mild voices. "I've also made this mistake in the past months," said the Pegida founder. Press and politicians would turn their opponents anyway from any knot, no matter whether formulated harder or softer.

He [Bachmann] had realized that one could only win with absolutly clear speech without concessions. That was [the case with] the election of Donald Trump to the US President, said Bachmann. Trump had been "oblique" and "inflexible", was "lined up" [targeted] by the press, and had been chosen by the Americans precisely for this reason. "Our commandment of the hour is: Be like Trump," said Bachmann.

John Derbyshire gives a lesson in 'White Supremacy' but needs one himself

I'VE BEEN LISTENING TO JOHN DERBYSHIRE'S PODCASTS AT VDARE.com since last August or so. I'm always looking for something to keep me company during mundane tasks and his low-key and often humorous commentary, without any commercial breaks, is quite to my liking. All was going well until his latest program of 12/01/16 that contained the segment “Who's a white supremacist?” Commenting on the furor over imagined White Supremacy in the Trump transition team and future Trump White House, Derbyshire vexed me no end with his description of what he considers the only true white supremacists – Nazis.

Now I have known for a long time that Derbyshire was a friend to Jews; therefore would not be a fan of Nazis. He seems pretty much on the same page with Jared Tayor on Jews – 'they look White to me.' However, seems to me that Taylor puts himself out there doing important, even difficult, racial work that somewhat makes up for it, that Derbyshire can't claim.

The Trump-Romney Question

The expressions in this photograph are priceless.


By Carolyn Yeager

I HAVEN'T SEEN ANYONE BRING UP WHAT SEEMS OBVIOUS TO ME. Donald Trump is working to bridge the gap between Mitt Romney and himself as part of his stated goal to unite the Republican party behind him. Romney, as his most vociferous critic, and also the highest status person in that wing of the party, can bring all other “Never Trumpers” around with him.

Trump's goal is to unite the entire country behind him. He's starting with the Republican party and with the party's former top Republican, Romney, by dangling in front of him the prestigious Secretary of State position. Brilliant? Certainly. We the people, and certainly we who have been Trump supporters from the beginning need to stop second-guessing our man and instead sit back and enjoy what he is unfolding before our wondering eyes. It's great and it's going to get even greater!

With 5 days to Austrian presidential election, Hofer holds onto narrow lead in polls

Published by carolyn on Wed, 2016-11-30 10:28

Alexander Van der Bellen (left) and Norbert Hofer during a joint appearance on Nov. 26th.


WITH THE RE-RUN ELECTION ONLY 5 DAYS AWAY ON SUNDAY, DEC. 4TH, Norbert Hofer appears to be holding his lead over Alexander Van der Bellen. In some polls, Hofer is at 52% to VdB's 48%.

According to bookmaker Paddy Power as of November 23, Hofer’s odds of becoming the next Austrian President were 4/9; Mr Van der Bellen was just behind him with odds of 13/8 .

It is thought that Mr Hofer has been given a boost by Donald Trump’s populist victory in America and the anti-establishment vote for Brexit in the UK. If he triumphs, he will be seen as Europe’s first “far-right” leader to be elected since the end of the Second World War. Hofer correctly rejects the term “far-right” and says he and his party are mainstream because they are in alighnment with the Austrian people. His party strongly opposes the “Islamisation of Europe” and has proposed a full ban on wearing the burka in public. The other parties are left, with the Green Party, which Van der Bellen led for 10 years, being a far-left party.

USHMM takes on the Alt-Right

Published by carolyn on Wed, 2016-11-23 22:22

Richard Spencer, Jared Taylor and Kevin MacDonald talking about White people's interests in relation to Pres-elect Donald Trump inspires images like this to the United States Holocaust Museum staff.


Hadding Scott has posted a good article at the CODOH website in response to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum's over-reacion by Andrew Hollinger concerning Richard Spencer's Saturday night NPI conference in Washington D.C. Hadding writes:

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum is obviously not just a museum, but has a mission of political propaganda in service to specifically Jewish interests. On Monday, 21 November 2016, the museum issued a public condemnation of statements reported to have been made by Richard Spencer in a speech at a conference of his National Policy Institute two days earlier, just a short distance from the USHMM. The museum declared itself “deeply alarmed” and called for action.

The text of the declaration makes clear that the author of the museum's proclamation did not even bother to make a careful determination of what Spencer had said, but simply trusted accounts given by news-media. The USHMM really did not have to rely on press-reports, since the conference was streamed live on YouTube, and the content was accessible immediately afterward. Because the USHMM relied on news-media, its account of what Spencer said is not entirely accurate. Continue reading at Codoh.com

Update: I'm independent again!

I am walking with a cane (like the one picutred at right) and can drive now. On Wednesday morning, the day before Thanksgiving, I'll be walking out my front door, down the porch steps, down the walkway to my car which is conveniently parked at the end of it. I'll drive the six-eight miles down the local “highway” to Kerrville, take the cut-off road to the southeast section of town where the hospital and my surgeon's office is (and the post office where I have some mail waiting) for my first out-patient appointment with him. I will get out of my car and walk into his office, unassisted. How exciting is that!

A new direction for America, and for me, personally

Hello friends,

It's nice to be back. You may have noticed I have not posted anything anywhere since Oct. 23. But I want to begin this post by acknowledging my total elation at the election of Donald Trump, which I see as the greatest gift I could possibly receive. What a relief – and for the next four years I'll have the pleasure of watching this man act in our interests to reverse the terrible decisions and actions that have been put into place in our country. Yes, now I feel it is my country and I'm proud to be an American – not something I have particularly felt much during my lifetime.

Former US Attorney: Both Clinton and Comey have committed prosecutable crimes while in office

Published by carolyn on Sun, 2016-10-23 23:17

Joe diGenova is a former US Attorney for the District of Columbia.


In an exclusive 26-minute video interview for The Daily Caller News Foundation, Joe diGenova answers questions about Clinton corruption regarding her emails, James Comey's "fake" investigation and failure to recommend prosecution of Clinton, and the very recent Project Veritas video by James O’Keefe featuring DNC contractors explaining their dirty practices to foment violence at Trump events. DiGenova claims it all comprises criminal activity and that President Barack Obama’s Department of Justice has “created a double standard for justice – one for the Clintons and one for the little guy.”

It's very informative and important to understand, so if you haven't yet seen it, you must go over to The Daily Caller and watch it now, preferably full screen. This former prosecutor doesn't mince words, for example, he calls FBI Director James Comey a “dirty cop.”

Another woman accuses Bill Clinton of sexual assault

Published by admin on Thu, 2016-10-20 09:24

This is the video of Leslie Millwee describing her experience as a 20-year-old with Governor of Arkansas Bill Clinton in 1980.


By Carolyn Yeager

A NEW BILL CLINTON ACCUSER HAS COME FORTH, which should give one pause about a Clinton presidential team taking officethat is, the governing team of Hillary and Bill.

Leslie Millwee, a married woman with children, appears in a video with Aaron Klein, recounting how Bill Clinton took advantage of her in a small editing room when she was a 20-year-old reporter. Millwee was working for a television news station in 1980 in the Fort Smith/Fayetteville, Arkansas market area. She said Clinton singled her out, calling her “pretty girl,” touching her and often asking after her at the station by name. Three times, she said, he came up behind her as she sat in an editing room chair and held her while he rubbed his genitals against the back of her neck. He eventually knocked on the door of her apartment one night, asking to be let in, she recounted, but she did not speak or open the door.

Why would they lie?

Published by carolyn on Sat, 2016-10-15 01:27

By Carolyn Yeager

THIS QUESTION HAS BEEN ASKED FOR THE PAST FEW DAYS BY FEMALE PUNDITS and news show hosts, and all liberal Democrats on TV … about the women who are coming forth to accuse Republican nominee for president, Donald Trump, of forcing unwanted sexual advances on them. What reason would they have for lying? It was asked the other night by Megyn Kelly of Fox News, with a sorrowful look on her face as she seemed to be trying to make her eyes water to demonstrate how seriously she takes it.

But this question is one those of us engaged in historical revisionism are very familiar with. In holocaust revisionism, especially, it is used as a standard defense for the wild stories told by survivors (or surlievors, as I call them) without any corroborating evidence or witnesses to back them up. Why would they lie about such a thing, it is asked. What reason do they have to lie?

How naive. Plenty of reasons, is the answer.
