July 21, 2021, 9:35 pmHungary's New Border Fence a 'Spectacular Success'.

Thats the way to do it.

 

Hungary's New 14 ft. High Razor Wire

Hungary's New Border Fence called a 'Spectacular Success'.

 

 

Skeptics who believe a border wall will not stop illegals from entering the United States may want to look at what's happening in Hungary.

 

On the day its border fence was completed, the influx of illegals entering Hungary went down from 6,353 per day to 870 the next. For the remainder of that month, illegal border crossings were steadily below 40 per day, officials said.

 

"They don't even try," a local border guard told The Daily Caller News Foundation. "We haven't had a single Muslim migrant in six months."  Prime Minister Viktor Orban's pledge to stop illegals from flowing into the country appears to be a spectacular success.

 

Hungary's 96-mile long, 14-foot high double-line fence includes several layers of razor-wire capable of delivering electric shocks. The barrier features cameras, heat sensors and loudspeakers ready to tell migrants they're about to break Hungarian law if they as much as touch the fence, the DC report said.

 

Nearly every police officer in Hungary is part of a rotation to monitor the border fence at all times. Temporary military bases house the police while they do their rotation.

Additionally, Hungary will train and pay more than 1,000 volunteers to deploy as "border hunters".

 

Illegals who are caught are arrested and dropped off on the Serbian side of the fence. They don't get a chance to apply for asylum unless they do so at a "transit zone" where they are held in housing containers while their cases get processed, the report said.

 

In September 2016, thousands of migrants streamed across the border every day as they made their way north to Austria, Germany and Scandinavia.

"It was an invasion," Laszlo Toroczkai, the mayor of Asotthalom, told the Daily Caller.  "Illegal immigration is a crime in a normal country.  It's not a normal thing to break into a country."

 

"By mid-year it was well beyond 100,000 people who came across," said Zoltan Kovacs, a spokesman for the Hungarian government.  "You should at least have the ability to handle what's going on."

 

Kovacs added: "You might not like it, it's not a nice thing, but the only way to stop illegal border crossings is to   first build a fence, man it, equip it, and also, in parallel, build up your capabilities in terms of legal confines, legal circumstances to be able to handle what is coming."

 

It's no surprise the mainstream U.S. media refuses to report this story to the American public.  Can you imagine how support for a Southern border wall would spike?

July 20, 2021, 9:46 pmCubans Rise For Freedom & Food + The Cuban plot in JFK murder

------------------------------

The Mysterious Cuban plot in JFK murder

963, Lee Harvey Oswald | Crédit Photo -- Jack Beers / Dallas Morning/AP
According to the author of the book, (available since Tuesday in the bookstors in USA), in the months preceding the Amarican president assassination, Oswald was conected with the Cuban secret service much more than we could imagine.

The CIA agents lied about these connotations in front of the judge Warren comission, which was leading the investigation of killing the president on November 22, 1963- claims Latell, who was the CIA's National Intelligence Officer for Latin America from 1990-1994, and has tracked Castro for the CIA since the sixties. According to Latell Cuba was also hiding the information about Oswald. Overheard conversation of two Cuban agents which was revealed lately in archives, seems to prove that. Latell doesn’t suggest that Oswald killed Kennedy on behalf of the communist authority in Hawana. Although he states that the new evidence proves commonly accepted thesis that the main reason pushing Oswald to the crime was "the burning desire to impress the Cuban leader Fidel Castro".

"I’m convinced that Oswald wanted to escape on Cuba. He loved Cuba and Castro and wanted to join the revolutin" writes Latell. The new sources used by Latell among others are : unpublished diaries of Thomas Mann, the USA ambassador in Mexico, the conversation with former Cuban agents and exposed gevernmental documents.

It’s commonly known that seven weeks before Kennedy assassination Oswald took the bus to go to the Mexico capital to obtain the visa at the embassy of Cuba. He didn’t get it but his visit caused lots of controversy and questions about the Cuban engagement in Kennedy murder as Oswald was famous for his communists inclinations. "What Oswald was doing for most of the time he spent in Mexico capital still stays the most important unreveald secret in this case" claims Latell.

The author says that the USA authorities never revealed everything they knew on this issue. It’s probably because they were afraid of public opinion demanding the revenge if the Cuban involvement was proved. It was just right after the Kennedy assassination when ambassador Mann found out that Oswald stayed in Mexico in Hotel del Comercio considered by CIA to be the base of Cuban spies working for the secret service DGI. In his diaries written in 1982 Mann disclosed that he received that information from the head of CIA agency in Mexico. When he tried to mention this issue in Washington, U.S. Department of State forced him to keep silence and stop the investigation on Oswald’s visit in Mexico.

According to Latell, only a week after the assassination, Mann was already ensured about Cuban participation in the crime and about the fact that Oswald worked for Cubans in that hotel. The diplomat was although dismissed a month after the JFK assassination. He died in 1999. In the book the author clearly underlined that CIA dissimulated in front of the Warren’s comission what happened in Hotel del Comercio in Mexico. The comission announced later that there is no evidence that Cuban government participated in the plot leading to kill Kennedy.The critics of the Latell’s book are compatible in their opinions. "No one knows more about Cuban intelligence than Brian Latell. In this page-turner, he not only tells compelling stories that reveal the strength of Cuban actions in Le Carre's world of spy vs. spy but raises unsettling questions about Lee Harvey Oswald's Cuban connections. By the end, the reader is asking, What did Fidel know and when did he know it?Timothy Naftali wrote in Blind Spot: « The Secret History of American Counterterrorism"**.

Brian Latell is also the author of another book devoted to Castro : "After Fidel"**, which has been published in eight languages. His articles on this topic have appeared in The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, Time, The Miami Herald, and The Washington Quarterly. It seems to prove Timothy Naftali’s opinion about Latell’s experience and knowledge as a former intelligence analyst on Cuba for the CIA. Currently Latell is a senior research associate at the Institute for Cuban and Cuban American Studies at the University of Miami, he previously taught for a quarter century at Georgetown University. He lives in Lancaster, Virginia.

July 20, 2021, 8:40 pmPowerful call to rebut 'American Marxism

https://www.leaderherald.com/opinion/editorials/2021/07/call-to-rebut-american-marxism/

 

...." The vast majority of the media promote it, they lie for it, they celebrate it, they bring the radicals on TV to lie about it.” Theorists such as Ibram X. Kendi and Robin DiAngelo, who declare all whites inherently racist until they confess their support for a “racial reckoning,” have been repeatedly celebrated in the “mainstream news” broadcasts. There is no debate allowed....."

July 17, 2021, 2:09 amOld Submarine Sailor's Wisdom :-)

I was the only speaker to show up at the high school, so I had the stage to myself.

I talked about staying in school, getting good grades and all that usual bull; and since I had plenty of time because those other guys didn't show, I threw it open for questions.

The last one asked was, "Can you give us a couple of your life's philosophical beliefs?"

I said, "That's an easy one. Looking back over my lifetime, I've spent most of my money on guns, airplanes, fast cars, women, and whiskey.  The rest I just wasted."

I was escorted out without getting to finish my last two rules to live by:

 

1) If it flies, floats, it's cheaper to rent it.

 

2) If it's got tits or tires, you're gonna have problems with it.

 

I hope they invite me back next year so I can finish.  They need to know this !

July 15, 2021, 5:33 amDa Vinci's DNA traced through living relatives to understand his genius

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Da Vinci's DNA traced through living relatives to understand his genius

 

 

Fourteen people alive today in Italy can claim that they are descendants of Leonardo da Vinci, according to a study of the Renaissance genius' family tree.

Researchers traced da Vinci's genealogy over nearly 700 years and 21 generations, from 1331 to the present day, beginning with da Vinci's great-great-great grandfather Michele.

The findings, published July 4 in the journal Human Evolution, could enable historians to reconstruct da Vinci's genome, helping them "scientifically explore the roots of his genius" and other characteristics, such as his left-handedness and unique sensory perceptions, the researchers wrote in the study.

Alessandro Vezzosi, a historian at the Museo Ideale Leonardo Da Vinci in Italy, and Agnese Sabato, president of the Leonardo Da Vinci Heritage Association, mapped five major branches of the updated family tree. Da Vinci, best known for painting "The Last Supper" and "The Mona Lisa," had no children, but his blood relatives include 22 half siblings. The Renaissance artist, scientist and engineer was born out of wedlock on April 15, 1452.

Vezzosi and Sabato scoured historical documents to identify the living relatives through an unbroken male line from da Vinci's father, Ser Piero, and half brother Domenico. The living descendants range in age from 1 year old to 85 years old, according to the researchers.

The historians are planning to conduct genetic analyses of the living relatives to zero in on the Y chromosome, which is passed down to male descendants, and "in which the indelible profile of Leonardo's personal and family identity is stamped," the researchers wrote in the study. Because this particular male line is unbroken, it's possible that the Y chromosome remains unchanged, they said.

In addition to revealing new insights into da Vinci's personality and health, a DNA study could help verify his remains. Da Vinci died in 1519 and is thought to be buried in Amboise, France, but the precise location is not known.

The new study is part of an international effort to find and sequence the polymath's DNA. The so-called Leonardo Da Vinci DNA Project includes researchers from the Leonardo Da Vinci Heritage Association, the Museo Ideale Leonardo Da Vinci and the California-based J. Craig Venter Institute.

July 11, 2021, 4:16 pmHappily ever after is not a fairy tale.It's a choice

Classic all-time favorite love stories (no wonder it has inspired artists for centuries!).

Here’s how it goes…

Psyche was a mortal woman of exceptional beauty who attracted hundreds of admirers.

The word of her popularity spread and caused Aphrodite (the Goddess of Love) to fly into a jealous rage.

To restore her position as the world’s most loved woman, Aphrodite sent her son, Eros to poison the souls of men so they would no longer desire Psyche.

But, instead of fulfilling her wish, Eros himself fell madly in love with Psyche.

Knowing his mother would be displeased, he kept his feelings a secret.

Many years passed and Psyche remained unmarried, unable to find her true love.

Her desperate parents went to Apollo to ask for his advice.

Apollo, who knew about Eros’ secret love for their daughter, told them that Psyche must wed a beast who was waiting on the mountain for her.

He also told Psyche that, because the beast was so ugly, she must never look at his face and that she could only visit him at night.

To the great disappointment of her parents, Psyche married the monster.

Much to her surprise however, she found great happiness with her new husband as he showered her with his unfailing love and tenderness.

When she told her sisters how happy she was, they became jealous and hatched a plan.

They warned Psyche that her monster-husband would kill her if she did not kill him first.

The next night, Psyche went to see her husband, armed with a knife and an oil lamp.

When she shone the lamp on her husband, she was shocked to see Eros’ beautiful face rather than that of the ugly beast.

Startled by her discovery, Psyche accidentally spilled the oil from the lamp on Eros.

He screamed and flew away, shouting that she had betrayed him and their relationship.

When Aphrodite heard this story, she became furious and imprisoned her son.

Anxious to see her true love again, Psyche begged Aphrodite to release him.

Aphrodite replied that she would only release Eros if Psyche completed 3 difficult tasks.

Fueled by deep love and desperation, Psyche completed 2 out of the 3 tasks but almost died trying to complete the third.

Hearing this, Eros escaped from prison, pleading with Zeus to save his love.

Greatly touched by the couple’s devotion to each other, Zeus granted Psyche immortality so that their great love would never die.

Together at last, Eros and Psyche quite literally lived happily ever after.

Ahhh… love…

Love is in the air.Lovies

July 10, 2021, 5:44 amTrucking industry is doubling down on booting marijuana smokerss

--------------------------------------------------------------

truck

 

 

  • A new federal law is making it impossible for truck drivers to responsibly enjoy marijuana.

  • It's a misguided attempt on the industry's part to promote safety.

  • Promoting better training would be wiser.

The trucking industry has been yelling about a driver shortage for decades. Since 2011, executives have listed the supposed shortage of truck drivers as a top 10 concern in an annual industry survey.

When it comes to recruiting, kids these days are perhaps the most vexing for trucking big wigs. Millennials and Gen Z just don't seem to want to become truck drivers. The most recent report from the American Trucking Associations on the driver shortage pointed to the "relatively high average age" of a truck driver (a whopping 46 years old) as one of the foremost reasons for the industry's labor woes. (The ATA is the industry group that represents America's larger trucking companies.)

July 9, 2021, 6:56 pmTo Kill An American :-(

CELEBRATE AMERICA'S FREEDOMS
 
 
Written by an Australian Dentist
    To Kill an American     
You probably missed this in the rush of news, but there was actually a report that someone in Pakistan had published in a newspaper, an offer of a reward to anyone who killed an American, any American.   

 
So an Australian dentist wrote an editorial the following day to let everyone know what an American is . So they would know when they met one. (Good one, mate!!!!)

 
'An American is English, or French, or Italian, Irish, German, Spanish , Polish, Russian or Greek. An American may also be Canadian, Mexican, African, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Australian, Iranian, Asian, or Arab, or Pakistani or Afghan.

 
An American may also be a Comanche, Cherokee, Osage, Blackfoot, Navaho, Apache, Seminole or one of the many other tribes known as native Americans.   

 
An American is Christian , or he could be Jewish, or Buddhist, or Muslim. In fact, there are more Muslims in America than in      Afghanistan       . The only difference is that in America they are free to worship as each of them chooses..

 
An American is also free to believe in no religion.. For that he will answer only to God, not to the government, or to armed thugs claiming to speak for the government and for God.

An American lives in the most prosperous land in       the history of the world.
The root of that prosperity can be found in the Declaration of Independence , which recognizes the God given right of each person to the pursuit of happiness.   

 
An American is generous.. Americans have helped out just about every other nation in the world in their time of need, never asking a thing in return.

 

When Afghanistan was over-run by the Soviet army 20 years ago, Americans came with arms and supplies to enable the people to win back their country!

 

As of the morning of September 11, Americans had given more than any other nation to the poor in Afghanistan ..
The national symbol of America , The Statue of Liberty , welcomes your tired and your poor, the wretched refuse of your teeming shores, the homeless, tempest tossed. These in fact are the people who built America

 

Some of them were working in the Twin Towers the morning of September 11 , 2001 earning a better life for their families. It's been told that the World Trade Center victims were from at least 30 different countries, cultures, and first languages, including those that aided and abetted the terrorists.
So you can try to kill an American if you must.. Hitler did. So did General Tojo , and Stalin , and Mao Tse-Tung, and other blood-thirsty tyrants in the world.. But, in doing so you would just be killing yourself . Because Americans are not a particular people from a particular place. They are the embodiment of the human spirit of freedom. Everyone who holds to that spirit, everywhere, is an American.

July 7, 2021, 3:26 pmthe river under the river~~

Psychotherapist and author Dr Clarissa Pinkola Estés poetically refers to the source of our creativity as "the river under the river." It's the deep primal energy that "nourishes everything we make"—our "writing, painting, thinking, healing, doing, cooking, talking, smiling." This river beneath the river doesn't belong to any of us—is potentially available to all—but if harnessed correctly it works in very personal ways, fueling our unique talents. I bring this to your attention, because were close to gaining abundant new access to the power of the river beneath the river~~~~~~~~
