Joe Biden: ‘China not bad folks, not competition to us’

 

Joe Biden, the gift that keeps on giving if the media would only report his positions. Robert Gates spelled it out in his memoir written a few years ago, “I think he (Biden) has been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades,” It looks like Joe is still fumbling along.

The latest are his remarks made yesterday on the stump.

 

 

Former Vice President Joe Biden downplayed the Chinese threat to the American economy during a campaign event in Iowa City, Iowa on 5/1/19.

 

Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates did Vice President Joe Biden and his presidential ambitions no favors in offering a summary of the politician’s foreign policy instincts.

“I think he has been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades,” Gates wrote of Biden in his book, Duty: Memoirs of a Secretary at War, according to the New York Times.

That stings, especially in light of the fact that President Obama picked Biden as his 2008 running mate in order to “add foreign policy expertise to the ticket,” as the Times put it. oversight of Iraq policy after Obama took office was also Biden’s responsibility.

Bonus:

 

Of course let us not forget Biden in February before announcing his candidacy did the bend over thing in Europe.

Joe Biden goes to Europe and blasts America – Calls the U.S. an ’embarrassment’

Speaking to European allies, Biden trashed America with an open hostility.

“The America I see values basic human decency, not snatching children from their parents or turning our back on refugees at our border. Americans know that’s not right,” Biden asserted.

“The American people understand plainly that this makes us an embarrassment. The American people know, overwhelmingly, that it is not right. That it is not who we are.”

 

Speak for yourself Joe.

Protestants account for less than one third of Germans, once the majority

 

Moravian Church

An interesting look into what is happening to christianity in Germany.  I have been saddened to learn that the Moravian Church that I was baptized and confirmed in has recently closed and that the denomination itself is considering a merger. Though the birthplace is not Germany itself now, much is owed to Count Zinzendorf. Thus this caught my attention. For more on the Moravians here

 

Germany is the birthplace of Martin Luther and the Protestant Reformation, but since the middle of the 20th century, the country has seen a dramatic shift away from Protestantism – one that has greatly outpaced a decline in the share of Germans who are Catholic.

Protestants represented a majority (59%) of Germany’s population in 1950, with Catholics as a sizable minority (37%), according to research by Detlef Pollack and Olaf Müller, scholars of religion and sociology at the University of Münster in Germany. These shares are largely based on church membership rolls that include both children and adults. Over the next 60 years, the share of Protestants fell 30 percentage points, while the share of Catholics dropped 7 points. Each group now includes roughly three-in-ten Germans, based on 2010 membership data.

How German Protestants and Catholics compare

Protestants and Catholics in Germany follow traditional Christian religious beliefs and behaviors at roughly similar rates, according to Pew Research Center data. For example, similar shares in both groups say they pray daily and believe in God with absolute certainty. At the same time, German Protestants are more likely than their Catholic counterparts to follow Eastern or New Age spiritual practices and beliefs. A third of German Protestants, for instance, believe in astrology, while only 23% of Catholics do. And about one-quarter of Protestants consult the horoscope, tarot cards or fortune tellers (23%), compared with 16% of Catholics.

Europe folds like a cheap suit – winds down import of Iranian oil

 

This didn’t take long now did it? Europe huffs and puffs.The media are so sure that Trump is wrecking our important relationships with our allies across the pond.

This as we just celebrated D-Day when we gave up our precious treasure of blood and life of our  young men for them. And Germany? What penance are you willing to give to us for us having to shed blood twice last century for your attempt at self-aggrandizement.

Even today, we pay for Europe’s security and now we ask you all to kick into the kitty by engaging in FAIR trade with us. So we want Europe’s support in fixing the feckless Iranian deal. After much bluster it looks like they are caving like a cheap suit:

After an initial hesitance over how the returning U.S. sanctions will affect Iran’s oil buyers, European refiners are beginning to wind down purchases from Iran after tanker providers, insurers, and banks began to shun Iranian deals and destinations for fear of exposing themselves to secondary sanctions.

Several large European companies in France, Spain, Italy, and Greece are reportedly admitting that they won’t risk U.S. sanctions and are unable to find tankers and insurer providers willing to facilitate shipments of Iranian oil to Europe, Reuters reported on Wednesday, citing company and trading sources.

Iran’s total oil exports have averaged around 2.5 million bpd in recent months, peaking in April, just before the U.S. withdrew from the Iran nuclear deal. Iran says that its May oil exports were higher than this year’s average, but it now looks like European refiners are choosing not to risk and have started to figure out ways to wind down Iranian oil purchases.

Iran’s oil exports to Europe account for around one-fifth of the total, while most of the Iranian crude goes to China and to India.

“We cannot defy the United States,” a senior source at Italy’s Saras, which operates a 300,000-bpd refinery on the island of Sardinia, told Reuters.

“It is not clear yet what the U.S. administration can do but in practice we can get into trouble,” the source noted.

A drop in crude trading between Iran and Europe could complicate efforts by the European signatories of the nuclear deal – France, Germany and Britain – to salvage the agreement.

Refiners including France’s Total, Italy’s Eni and Saras, Spain’s Repsol and Cepsa as well as Greece’s Hellenic Petroleum are preparing to halt purchases of Iranian oil once sanctions bite, the sources said.

Free rides for refugees – Displacing Europe’s Population

I am not a fan of Info Wars in particular, but they often provide leads to information one would not find otherwise. Either way, one has to wonder why Europe is so worried about Russia when they are no less allowing the Trojan horse of millions of refugees into their midst which will ultimately doom themselves. There are Millions of Dollars in the business of taking care of refugees, so this is not so far fetched. Check out

   There’s money to made on these Syrian Refugees‏ 

Here we go with the latest from Moon Battery:

Combine the mass importation of “refugees” with Africa’s exploding population rate and you have effective genocide. If this continues, within a century Europeans will face a situation as grim as whites do now in South Africa. Another century after that and no one will even remember Europeans; the continent will be populated by savages squatting in dung huts.

If Russia invaded, Europe would fight back. But to be conquered by Russians would be infinitely better than to be displaced out of existence by uncountable hordes of Africans, because there would still be such a thing as the future.

Every Nine days, a terrorist attack is attempted in Europe in 2017

Time for Great Britain and the world to wake up. The U.S. can no longer be the only country concerned about terrorism and to the Mayor of London, no we will never accept that this is to be accepted.

From Breitbart:  Europe, the United Kingdom, and Russia have witnessed terror attacks or attempted attacks every nine days in 2017 on average, analysis of security incidents has revealed.

Since January, around 45 people have been killed by mostly Islamic terrorists, while hundreds have been injured. The only known incident not linked to jihadism in 2017 was the attack on the Borussia Dortmund soccer team by a Russian-German national attempting to profit from short-selling stock in the company.

 Attacks and attempted attacks have taken place in Austria, France, the United Kingdom, Belgium, Italy, Russia, Sweden, Norway, and Germany.

Security services in Britain — population 65 million — are known to be tracking 3,500 potential terror suspects or persons posing a threat. Meanwhile Belgium, with its population of just 12 million, is tracking around 18,000 potential jihadists. List at Breitbart

The enemy is at the gate, they lay siege to our walls, yet no one answers the call to arms!! Where are the Knights, why are they not suited up for the great battle? Are they asleep? Who will slay this beast if not the Templars? The angels are sounding the trumpets, are the sounds of them muffled? This enemy is familiar, we have fought them before, in histories past, come brethren, take up your cross, and fight for God, and the Saints, the beast has reared his ugly head once again!!

 What is the matter with Twitter? Great Britain’s police? The following were removed from Great Britain. Where is the outrage? The UK gave us Freedom of Speech. Time to get a move on.

The Barren and Gay who Rule Europe

 

The Genetic Dead Ends Who Rule Europe is the title to an insightful and deliciously written piece about the fertility of the heads of European States. I have often pondered why Europe and many here in the States seem hellbent on losing our culture and identity ultimately giving away the very nature of the governance with the so-called open borders. Perhaps because they have no skin in the game for their offspring. Here is a portion of it:

When France decided to slit its own throat last week and elect the childless Emmanuel Macron as its president over the bustier and more fecund Marine Le Pen, it made him the ninth current European leader whose loins have borne no fruit.

In addition to France, childless men and barren women currently rule Italy, Germany, the UK, Scotland, Sweden, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg.  Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the European Commission, has likewise never fathered nor raised a seedlin’. (And it’s not as if he has a face that inspires female lubrication, so it’d be an uphill climb for him under any circumstances.)

At this point, the 39-year-old Macron will likely never become a father, seeing as his 64-year-old wife’s vagina stands a high statistical chance of having fossilized by now. Macron has described colonialism as a “crime against humanity,” although he apparently has no qualms about France being colonized by Muslims. He has also stated that there is no such thing as “French culture.” He is also persistently dogged by rumors that he’s had a long-lasting, rump-wrangling, man-on-man relationship with Radio France chief executive Mathieu Gallet.

During the campaign, Marine Le Pen accused Macron of being the lapdog of Angela Merkel, the former communist and nude sunbatherwho has never given birth, but has handed Europe over to be killed.  Under Merkel’s frumpy rule, Germany can currently claim the dubious bragging right of being the nation with the highest quotient of childless women in the world.

Current UK Prime Minister Theresa May also has a womb that might as well be a tomb, but at least it’s not from a lack of trying.  Same goes for Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon—she gave up after suffering a miscarriage. Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni, who looks like Merkel with maybe a half-shot of testosterone and without the Grecian Formula, has likewise never used his genitals to generate a child. According to the latest results from a highly unscientific online poll, 100% of respondents think he’s gay.

When it comes to Luxembourg’s Prime Minister Xavier Bettel(pictured to right of his partner), there’s no denying it—he’s as gay as a fresh sprig of mistletoe pinned to a red-velvet winter’s vest. He currently bears the distinction of being the “only openly gay world leader” at the moment. And we can all safely assume that his life partner isn’t going to start poppin’ babies out of his rectum anytime soon.

Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven has never seen a boy or girl call him “daddy.” The only thing mentioned in the “Personal life” section of his Wikipedia page is that he “enjoys sports.” I cannot confirm whether or not Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte is gay or not, but look at this picture and tell me he isn’t. What I can confirm is that a woman has never carried his sperm to term.

In stark contrast to the gaggle of fruits and the unfruitful who currently rule Western Europe, Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin, and Viktor Orban—who form a Triumvirate of Evil for anyone dumb enough to believe globalism’s a good thing—have graced the planet with a dozen children between them, which will undoubtedly lead to climate change and starvation in Africa, which will then force 100 million or so African refugees northward in search of freedom, social justice, and a better life.

The cobwebbed wombs and the blank-shooting scrotums that currently rule Europe obviously have no personal genetic stake in what happens to Europe after they die. To them, the Europeans of the future will be “all future generations” that inhabit Europe, not the biological descendants of those who’ve inhabited Europe for dozens of millennia.

A continent ruled by the sterile and inhabited by those who’ve been brainwashed or demoralized into choosing sterility themselves will have no posterity in the classical sense. Instead, they will be overrun by people from alien cultures who may not have developed much in the way of technology or philosophy but who at least possess the genetic wisdom to be fertile.”

Remember when Obama wanted to give the Russians our Missile Defense Codes??

Recall a few short years ago, Obama cancels efforts for a missile Defense for Europe. Because, we had this restart thing that was working swell for Russia, not so much for the United States. How about our codes? No, I am not kidding you. I give you this from an old post of mine from 2014 – and Trump is inexperienced?
Wednesday, 7 March 2012
Why does The Obama Administration Want to Give Moscow our Missile Defense Codes?
The key is Obama has to make it look good that the  negotiations with Putin have paid off and that he has not been played for a fool.”
Reuters report on a Congressional hearing about the Obama Administration considering giving Putin’s Russia access to our Missile Defense Codes.

The Reuters report, “Obama mulls giving Moscow data on missile defense”  had these disturbing revelations from   testimony by   Deputy Assistant Defense Secretary  for Nuclear and Missile Defense Policy  Dr. Bradley H. Roberts at hearings before the House Armed Services Committee:

The Obama administration disclosed on Tuesday that it is considering sharing some classified U.S. data as part of an effort to allay Russian concerns about a controversial antimissile shield.

The administration is continuing negotiations begun under former President George W. Bush on a defense technical cooperation agreement with Moscow that could include limited classified data, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense Brad Roberts told a House of Representatives’ Armed Services subcommittee.

He gave no details on the sort of data that might be shared under such an agreement.

Russia strongly opposes the U.S.-engineered bulwark being built in and around Europe against ballistic missiles that could be fired by countries like Iran.

We asked a missile defense analyst for his views on these revelations.  He wrote:

Bush never gave any data to the Russians–when will we learn that when the Russians complain and whine, they want something and they want stuff that is valuable……so caving to them always will hurt US security. This is the issue. Obama desperately wants a summit with the Russians in Chicago in May following the Seoul summit.  However, he has nothing to announce.  Reset doesn’t seem to be working.   There is no substance to this story unless it is a leak to see what might happen if the administration does pass such information to the Russians.  Congress appears opposed, but POTUS wants to have a photo op with  a communiqué and better video for the convention and campaign. The key is Obama has to make it look good that the  negotiations with Putin have paid off and that he has not been played for a fool.
