Well, that didn't take long. Earlier today two or three muslims entered a Catholic church in Normandy and butchered an 84-year-old priest in a Halal-compliant manner (basically, throat cut while chanting Allahu akbar.)
The French president visited the area and said quite explicitly - France is at war. So that's official then.
How they will pursue the war is not obvious. They do have their aircraft carrier, the Charles de Gaule in the Gulf attacking ISIS strongholds in Syria and Iraq, but how do they conduct the war on French soil?
During WW2 'aliens' were interned, for example the USA rounded up all Japanese people in the States, including those with US nationality, and kept them in camps for the duration of the war. Individually they may have done nothing wrong, but collectively they could not be trusted. And to be fair, America experienced almost no attacks from Japanese in the continental United States. The policy worked.
Does France have the will to intern its muslim population? They already live in distinct areas called banlieux, roughly "suburbs". At the moment inhabitants are given free rein to travel in the rest of France - that would have to change. Most likely President Hollande does not have what it takes to make that happen. But there are elections next year and a certain Madame Le Pen would have - and the more these attacks keep happening the closer she gets to the Elysee Palace.
Islamic terrorism is coming thick and fast, and mainly in Germany, which is not surprising since Merkel invited in a million "refugees".
In recent weeks we have had:
At some point we are going to have to acknowledge that this is now an open war. We have known the war was coming for years (see posts on this blog going back to 2008) but now it seems to have come.
We all know what's coming.
It's not hard to see.
Hints are everywhere, even in places seemingly obscure (see Scott Adams, creator of Dilbert, mentioning the "diversity ceiling").
If diversity is the goal, then logically the ends justify the means, right?
Over time, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has become even less diverse — and its own director doesn’t know why.
During a speech on Wednesday, FBI Director James Comey called a decrease in diversity a “crisis” during a time when racial issues are at the forefront.
“We have a crisis in the FBI and it is this: Slowly but steadily over the last decade or so, the percentage of special agents in the FBI who are white has been growing,” he said, adding, “I will have failed if I don’t change this.”
The numbers show that FBI diversity has in fact been on a steady decline for nearly 20 years. According to the FBI’s website, as of March 8, 2016, its special agents are 83.41 percent white; 6.63 percent Latino; 4.37 percent Black; 4.48 percent Asian; and less than 1 percent American Indian/Alaska Native, Hawaiian/Pacific Islander and multi-race.
In 2012, a year before Comey became director, special agents were 83.1 percent white; 7 percent Latino; 4.8 percent Black; 4.2 percent Asian; and less than 1 percent multi-racial, American Indian/Alaska Native and Hawaiian/Pacific Islander.
The numbers were declining even before Comey stepped in. In 2008, special agents were 81.9 percent white, 7.8 percent Hispanic, 5.2 percent Black, 4.1 percent Asian, less than 1 percent American Indian and 0 percent Hawaiian/Pacific Islander and two or more races.
In 1997, Politico reported, special agents were 6.9 percent Latino and 5.6 percent Black.
In comparison, among the 2016 DiversityInc Top 50 Companies for Diversity, 24.8 percent of all management employees are Black, Hispanic or Asian.
Diversity among college graduates has been steadily increasing, as the FBI’s recruiting efforts went in the other direction. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, from the 1996-97 school year to 2013-14, the percent of bachelor’s degrees earned by nonwhite people increased 35 percent. The latest data showed 67.7 percent of four year degree earners were white, 10.6 percent were Black, 11.2 percent were Hispanic, 7.3 percent were Asian/Pacific Islander, 2.5 were percent two or more races and less than 1 percent were American Indian/Alaska Native.
Comey was speaking at a conference called “Working Together — The Primary Prevention for Safety and Security” at Bethune-Cookman University in Florida.
The event was put together by Historically Black Colleges & Universities Law Enforcement Executives and Administrators, a group dedicated to the safety of students at HBCUs and the quality of HBCUs’ law enforcement.
Comey also addressed that the problem starts with him.
“I am trapped inside this not-too-impressive, 6-foot-8-inch, skinny white guy from the New York metropolitan area existence,” he said. “That’s who I am. I can’t escape that. All that data I take in comes in through that filter.”
Comey has spoke about the need for diversity on several occasions since taking his position in September 2013, but data shows he has not actually done anything to solve the problem. In 2015 he called the FBI “overwhelmingly white and male” and said it will be a “big challenge” to change that.
“It is an imperative for all of us in law enforcement to try to reflect the communities we serve. … I have to change my numbers,” he said at the time.
But the numbers have only gotten worse — and racial tension and violence have become more visible. During the conference some parents told Comey they are now fearful for their childrens’ lives, especially after the most recent police-related deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile.
Adrian Wiggins, executive director of Campus Safety and Public Safety at a college in Baltimore, became choked up when confessing his concerns to the director.
“Full disclosure, I’ve been Black for all my life, and I’m raising a young Black man who is a wonderful, wonderful man, 10 years old,” Wiggins said. “I raise him right, I take him to church, teach him right from wrong. And I’m just afraid for my son.”
Wiggins said he worries his “10-year-old son will be … one of those issues going down.” and asked, “What is it that can be done by the [FBI] to help me sleep better at night? To be less afraid for my son?”
Comey said it is “vitally important” to “try very, very hard to put ourselves in the shoes of others” and called for more data about police violence, as well as open discussions about these issues.
However, Comey’s past discussions about race relations between police and communities, specifically with Black people in communities, have not been productive for the conversation. Last year when discussing racial profiling during a speech he seemed to be making excuses for the practice rather than explaining how to address the problem.
“The two young Black men on one side of the street look like so many others the officer has locked up. Two young white men on the other side of the street, even in the same clothes, do not,” he said at the time. “The officer does not make the same sinister association about the two white guys, whether that officer is white or Black.”
If present trends play out, we will see the federal government enforce rules in hiring to effectively stamp out the problems of whiteness, for both the private and public sectors.
The signs are all around us.
What did you think of Trump's speech?
Law and order sounds pretty good, right?
Meanwhile, next week in Philadelphia... [With NAACP Speech, Hillary Goes Full “Black Lives Matter, White Lives Don’t”—And Her Convention Will Be Worse (Better), July 19, 2016]:

Perhaps they were motivated by the abolitionist spirit still haunting Kansas?
After all, President Obama merely compared Black Lives Matter (BLM) to those saintly abolitionists
whose contributions to the American experiment turned out so well in Detroit, Memphis, Baltimore, Newark, Camden, Gary, and Rochester...
|All they did was kill a white cop... isn't that what the media, academia and the Obama Administration is encouraging blacks to do? Won't that finally rid America of "implicit bias"? |
Well, not really.
But that's not the point.
The point is, yet another white cop has been murdered ("executed" is perhaps a better term, though not quite an officially state-sanctioned execution yet) by a black person. In this case, it was two black people. [Suspected gunmen identified in killing of veteran KCK police captain, KCTV.com, July 20, 2016]:
Two men are being held in connection with the fatal shooting of a Kansas City, KS police captain, KCTV5 has learned.
Prosecutor Jerry Gorman says Jamaal Lewis and Daqon Sipple, the men in jail in connection with Capt. Robert Melton’s death, may not be charged until Thursday. Police say they are not looking for any other suspects at this time.
Lewis, 20, was booked late Tuesday night in Wyandotte County jail on first-degree murder. Sipple, 18, was booked hours earlier on aggravated assault of a law enforcement officer and use of a deadly weapon.
KCTV5 spoke to Clarette Monroe, the mother of Lewis.
She says don’t rush to judgement yet.
“He’s not a bad kid,” Monroe said. “He’s hanging out with a rough crowd. He has no record and has never been arrested. People should not rush to judgment. Don’t do that.”
Jalelisa Sipple, the sister of Daqon Sipple, also spoke to KCTV5. She echoed Monroe's comments.
"The only thing I want people to know is that the picture that's being painted is not actually him," she said. "Which is what most people know, everybody that knows him knows that he's not that kind of kid?"
KCTV5 examined Lewis’ and Sipple’s backgrounds. Searches in Kansas and Missouri revealed backgrounds. However, juvenile records are sealed.
Police said there was a drive-by shooting at Second Street and Edgerton Road about 1:30 p.m. Tuesday and officers responded. Melton found both the suspects at 22nd Street and Haskell Avenue about 2 p.m.
Before Melton could get out of his vehicle, someone opened fire through his window, hitting Melton several times, Zeigler said.
Melton, 46, was taken to the University of Kansas Hospital. Paramedics tried to resuscitate him the whole way there. He was pronounced dead a little before 3 p.m.
Jamaal and Daqon "didn't do nothing," according to their family members. They just killed a white cop, that's all.
And isn't that what Black Lives Matter seems to be agitating for?KCTV5
The latest PK at VDare. [With NAACP Speech, Hillary Goes Full “Black Lives Matter, White Lives Don’t”—And Her Convention Will Be Worse (Better)
, July 19, 2016]:
Only a day after another black radical—this time a member of the Nation of Islam—opened fire on white police in Baton Rouge (killing two white officers and one black officer, injuring multiple other white officers), the presumptive nominee for the Democrat Party has doubled down on the idea that racist white police are still out there hunting innocent black people.
Honestly, it’s hard to even keep a straight-face when reading what Hillary Clinton just told the NAACP National Convention in Cincinnati: that she will personally not stop leading a crusade against police “until we root out implicit bias and stop the killings of African Americans.”
I don't want to ruin the surprise, so please read the rest of the PK piece at VDare.com there

Let's just say the Democrat Convention next week in Philadelphia is truly going to be The Planet of Apes
Before we begin our tale of obvious blackness, a backgrounder is in order. [Census data reveals new migration pattern as black families leave Cleveland
, Cleveland Plain-Dealer, March 28, 2011]:
Establishing a new and powerful migration pattern, black families fled their Cleveland neighborhoods in large numbers last decade. They transformed some inner-ring suburbs and brought new diversity to wealthier, outer suburbs.
"They're moving out because of crime and because of the schools," said Councilman Zack Reed, whose Ward 2 on Cleveland's southeast side lost 26 percent of its population. "Those are the two fundamental reasons that people leave."
One of those areas profiled in the 2011 story from the Cleveland Plain-Dealer is Euclid, a city now majority black courtesy of black families fleeing the ruins of black Cleveland in search of another area black will inevitably ruin.
Which brings us to our tale of obvious blackness
. [Teen killed at anti-violence gathering Sunday; 2 others also shot in Euclid
, Fox8.com, July 18, 2016]
One person was shot to death during a “Stop the Violence Beach Party” at Sims Park Beach in Euclid Sunday.
According to a release from Euclid Police Department, there were 200 to 300 people at the party, which was held in the area of 23131 Lakeshore Blvd.
Police say a crowd had gathered on the beach, and at shortly after 8 p.m. unknown suspects fired shots and then fled on foot.
Although the intended target is unknown, a 19-year-old Euclid man was shot in the head and killed.
A 12-year-old boy was shot in the back and was hospitalized. His condition is not known.
Later in the evening at shortly after 9 p.m., an 18-year-old Euclid man was walking in the 24000 Lakeshore Boulevard when an unknown suspect fired multiple times at him from across the street, hitting the victim in the shoulder. The teen was hospitalized, and his condition is unknown.
No other injuries were reported in either incident, and no arrests have been made.
Police are investigating the possibility that the two incidents are related.
No blacks, know peace.
Know blacks, no peace.
Eight words, eight syllables that tell the story of America perfectly.

It's only a matter of time now, until things blow. The pro-black media will cover up the truth, as will a police department under investigation by Obama's anti-white Department of Justice. [Amid nation's police-community tensions, Baltimore officers kill man in exchange of gunfire
, Baltimore Sun, July 15, 2015]:
A week after five police officers were fatally shot in Dallas by a sniper during a protest against police shootings, Baltimore police say four officers came under fire from a 33-year-old man with a self-assembled, high-powered long gun.
Two of the officers returned fire, fatally wounding the man and spurring a massive police response outside a West Baltimore apartment complex Thursday night.
Baltimore Police Commissioner Kevin Davis said Friday that the two officers who fired their weapons amid the "chaotic scene" have been placed on routine administrative duties pending an investigation into the incident.
He said a preliminary investigation suggested the two officers — one a 16-year veteran, and the other on the force for six years, neither of whom has been identified — acted appropriately and bravely in confronting the gunman, identified as Dayten Ernest Harper.
We're lucky we don't have four dead cops today," Davis said, before repeating the number to let it sink in.
A person reached at a number listed for Harper declined to comment Friday evening.
The exchange of gunfire occurred about 9:30 p.m. Thursday, shortly after President Barack Obama concluded a televised town hall to address the Dallas attacks and the growing national debate over fatal police shootings of black men, including Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, La., and Philando Castile in the suburbs of St. Paul, Minn.
It also happened the same day that the Baltimore Police Department received a memo from the Baltimore field office of the FBI, warning that members of the city's Black Guerrilla Family gang had discussed the possibility of ambushing officers in the wake of the Dallas attack.
The memo, obtained by The Baltimore Sun, said the FBI had received "highly credible information" that the BGF had discussed how the gang could ambush law enforcement officers parked in side streets or alleys, and instructed its members to look for opportunities to shoot white police officers.
Davis said police do not believe the incident Thursday had anything to do with the threat and "don't believe it was an ambush." He said four plainclothes officers happened to hear gunfire off Winchester Street and responded.
"They were fired upon by a bad guy," he said. "That's not the first time that's happened in Baltimore."
Still, given the intensity of the incident and the existence of the FBI memo, and with the national debate over police-community tensions as a backdrop, Davis said he decided to write a letter to all members of his force to reassure them that they have support.
