    Fwiw.

    The French 8th Colonial Regiment saw action against Germany. Only reason I know about this was as a former boxing fan. One Louis Fall, born St Louis, Senegal was decorated as a war hero. He won a world title as "Battling Siki". He met a violet death in "Hells Kitchen" New York in his twenties.

  • Will Diversity Destroy The Left?

    Interesting post.

    I just caught something on another website that seemed to deal with a curious paradox. It was a view of a blogger, herewith.

    The celebration of diversity and it's advantages for mainly white populations are well known. What has not been realized is that in countries where the population is virtually non-white, this is a fact. There is absolutely no outcry or a demand for "diversity". There appears to be absolutely no requirement for an influx of white people to those countries.

    The real reasons for so-called "diversity" might well be an eventual subjugation and even elimination. This of the much maligned white people, in their own countries. They of an orderly and fairly prosperous society, evolving over hundreds of years.

    Excuse my ramble.

    It's 500 years between Edward Longshanks and George III.

    I liked your observation on the changing of the most cruel and barbaric practices in England. I had not done my homework on the more humane edict of the VIII Amendment to the Constitution.

    The wording is almost exactly the same in the Bill of Rights of December 1689. This was read in the English parliament in front of King William III and Mary, his Queen. I know that some good things were retained by the Framers of the Constitution, of English law.

    As suspected, some vile and cruel things were still enacted by both countries. This before final punishment was meted out. I am sure the Framers of the Constitution were appalled by these practices, previously carried out in England. Especially under Elizabeth 1st. They wanted a swift end in the case of the death sentence. It being enough in itself.

    Excuse the ramble.

    Excellent post and very graphic. I am reminded of:

    The Fifteen Decisive Battles of the World.
    From Marathon to Waterloo.
    Sir Edward Creasy.1851.

    That battle is recorded. For, as one learned Oxford professor said-"Had that battle been lost, I would have been teaching the Koran today and not biblical history". It might be a little unkind to the honourable lady here. During the horror of a serial killer roaming at large while she was Mayor, she called a news conference. She told the whole world, that the police had the killers footprints. She said they had the cartridge casings. The police were unhappy, to say the least.

    Later, the killer was caught. He saw the news conference and promptly dumped his shoes and weapon over the San Francisco Bridge. Unbelievable!

    Eight Amendment To The Constitution. 1791.

    Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed. Nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.

    I find, to my chagrin I was absolutely wrong in one sense. It was the English Parliament that put a stop to the barbaric tortures of the condemned. The English Bill of Rights 1685 declared torture had to stop. One, Titus Oates convicted of multiple perjury, was whipped, while dragged by a cart.This case aroused the reformers.

    I was right in saying the Framers of the Constitution were appalled by what had gone on in England. Nonetheless England had already six years prior, had their own edict. Read to King William 111,before Parliament. That of no cruel and unusual punishment.

    Mea Culpa.

    It is implied under "cruel and unusual punishment," but that is for punishment not interrogation.

    Yes, agreed. My take on the Constitution is that among many of the things that revolted and dismayed the Framers was this. The English methods of execution in the past. The method was to draw out the death of the accused just as long as he/she could know and feel pain. (I will have to research as to when that method was discontinued).

    Some of the punishments especially on Tower Hill,London, one can attribute to inhuman devils. The Framers knew they would have to have the death sentence for criminal conduct. They just wanted the orgy of torturing of a poor wretch, with the amusement of the stench ridden crowd watching, to be ended.

    I winced at the disclosure of the methods used by the CIA et al. I ask myself, why in the name of heaven release this stuff?

    My research shows an incredible mix of various groups in the Scarborough area adjoining Toronto itself. Toronto boasts "one of the most diverse multicultural populations" of the major cities in the west.

    Scarborough.


    Asian 22%
    Chinese 19.5%
    Filipino 7%.

    You could be right. I will keep a good look out for any leaked information. The press even blanked out the parents faces when they honed in on the arraignment of the youths.

    Your point well taken and I did my best to ascertain the lady's status. At all times during the brief interviews there was no mention though, of a husband. To throw doubt into the mix the news person said "her family is traumatised". Could mean her parents too.

    Meanwhile we Freepers are all together in wishing this brave woman well. I will follow the evidence and if these young persons shed light on their follow, I will post it. Dormant post though it may be.

    Thanks for the link Fred. Seems we, like our American friends are up against a sort of consensual agreement by the media. This to tone down any racial identity, if minorities are involved. Now if it was a whitey.....

    Up Canada way we are mostly in the dark about the lady and her child. I don't know her racial background. The authorities will not give out much, because the identity of the two youths are protected.

    I took a quick look on CBC Television at a court room sketch of their appearance. I double checked on the CBC on line court room sketch. Simple as the sketching was, there was a black oblong block over part of the faces.

    Sad as it is, both youths are either black or brown faced persons. They were said to have been sort of looking bewildered in the court room. Thank the Lord it was not any worse. The poor lady must be suffering over this in any case.

    Peter Libra to KeyLargo
    A very important fact to be considered is the physical condition of the person arrested. The police are generally not to know of the persons medical detail. This unfortunate man was in a poor state of health. Had he, at his time of life been reasonably fit, we might have not been talking about the arrest.

    We had a case in Canada 2007. A large forty year old Polish entrant to Canada was tasered at the immigration offices in Vancouver. He had by an error left in a holding room for eight hours. The poor man went frantic, smashing furniture. Four police subdued him.

    Turns out he had absolutely gone "cold turkey" from cigarettes and vodka. He wanted to be fit for a "new life" in Canada. Medical authorities said that two weeks of this set him up for a disaster. He should have tapered off. His system was thus very weak. It started a nation wide furore, of course. Excuse the ramble, but physical condition is the key in many cases. Just bad luck for the police here.

    Peter Libra to YHAOS; jdoug666
    The Media Puke's "dirty hands" stem from far earlier than Ferguson.

    I will never forget the multiple repeats of the Rodney King episode. Again and again. It looked much worse than it really was. True, if one only quickly glanced at it, it inflamed emotions. The riots and deaths plus the stupid brutal beating of the truck driver, who got brain damage indicts the stinking media.

    One can imagine many of them sitting at a bar or at some home get together. Getting high on alcohol and thinking of their service to the cause of "right".

    Wilson was stupid in thinking that him resigning will stop threats.

    I would like to put in another view, I could be totally wrong though. It could be true that the officer thought this. If so, how wrong he was.

    I believe that everything has been done with a view to appease the criminal rioters and so called protesters. The act of his complete disassociation with the local authority may be a careful plan. If not, they have thrown him under the bus.

    I take the liberty of repeating a previous post. Why have there not been cries for the prosecution of those who broke the law so deliberately. Burning, looting, rioting and figures publically calling for more criminal acts.

    Your post #44 noted.

    There is the most telling thing about the actual video. This is of this "unarmed child" and the small store clerk. After he had roughed up the clerk and started out the door, he turned back and advanced in menacing fashion.

    His mentality shows this. Even the slightest protest against his criminal act, is seen as cause for his anger. He was dead set against the officer and turned back in anger, the same as shown against the store clerk.

    Occupy Wall Street was a bust; Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman incident fizzled; So Ferguson will also fade away.

    I have witnessed the full force of the media in the past. Sometimes I have despaired and asked myself "will they never let this go?". I found that each incident that had the usual press overblown coverage, has a shelf life. I found it interesting to guess how long it would last. In this case, where will we be with the Ferguson protests in exactly one week?

    I had made a mistake in forecasting a weeks ending to a Basketball team's owner's desperate situation. I cannot even recall the name, but the team was the Clippers. The press "outrage" over this gentleman's private "racist" phone calls to his paramour continued much longer. Yet who really cares today?

    On the reparation demands by France at the end of the Franco-Prussian War 1871.

    Your point well taken by me and indeed I had not done my homework. I guess the epic musical drama Les Miserables, partly about the Communards and their insurgence in Paris, had me not thinking. The revolutionary forces had a free reign, since a hundred thousand French troops were prisoners of war at Sedan. The Germans hurriedly released them with their small arms. The Germans were wary of any worker uprising as preached by their own Karl Marx. This you will know.

    I smile sadly at the ironies of history. Blucher and the Germans saving Wellington at Waterloo 1815. Later the British and French locked in a death struggle in France against Germany. 1914.

    The whole World War 1 thing probably did more to do with Hitler becoming Hitler than this did.

    Agreed. Also the demand for reparations by the French sundered the fragile economy of post war Germany. The industrial heartland of Germany was actually occupied by French and British troops 1928/9. This was to enforce reparations.

    I would like to mention in support of your statement, of the Allied blockade. My grandfather in the Royal East Kent Regt. spent over three years 1915/18,as a German prisoner of war. His health was damaged through inadequate feeding. I learned the German population starved also and there was massive suffering. I have no hard feelings now, it was the blockade of Germany by the Royal Navy.

    America did not make the same awful mistake after WW2. The war criminals were dealt with and the civilian population were helped recover by massive aid.

    I have no doubt Oswald did it alone with that bolt rifle.

    I have the same conclusion in this matter. I do respect anyone that states a cogent view as to the contrary. Although it might be somewhat debatable to use a fiction/fact novel as a pointer, I enjoyed this book.

    LIBRA.
    Don Delillo
    Viking Press.1988

    What points to Oswald's guilt for me is merely his conduct just after the shooting. In come the police to the main floor of the repository. Oswald calmly draws a can of pop from a vending machine. Obviously this diverts attention, as his supervisor mentions that Oswald works here. Oswald does not utter a peep, no questioning as to "what in the heck is going on"

    Oswald walks away without so much as asking whether he should. He walks and finally enters a a shoe store and is not really interested in purchasing. He glances out of the window at police cars zooming by. He does not say a word. Then there is the death of Officer Tippet, who killed him.?

    Forgive the ramble but this stuff has been bottled up inside me for years. I remember that awful day.

    We used to quarantine people routinely who came this country to be sure they were disease free (what do you think Ellis Island was used for?)

    Sometimes the draconian decisions that must be made are sadly necessary. I read of the entries of persons and their accounts at Ellis Island. Tuberculosis would, if detected send a person back to their own country.

    One account had a man being told prior to landing that he must not cough. He had TB. He could not stop the coughing and dived out of the ship and was apprehended. He was making for shore. Sad though it is, one could imagine such a person boarding with a hard working family. The poor kids could then be smitten with this dread disease. His entry would have made America all the worse.

    Some authorities have to make awesome decisions and then get vilified and it is not fair. (Excuse the rant).

    I had seen the interviews on television stating that Rouleau the convert to Islam, was previously counselled by police. Later he ran down two soldiers in Quebec as everyone knows.

    It was stated the authorities had 90 suspected would be radical Islamists on their lists. The statement was made that the law does not allow arrests for one's wacky views. Rouleau was number 90. It will be interesting to find out if the Parliamentary terrorists are on that list. Still more interesting if drastic action will be taken against these remaining psychopathic individuals.

    Canadian television journalists repeating that no known connection to terrorism is proved. Just heard it for the sixth time.

    What is the problem with these people? Methinks they protest too much.

    Soldier hit by vehicle has died. Perpetrator known to have been put on no fly list and passport confiscated. Was on face book with a headscarf mask jihad style. Prime Minister Harper has called it terrorism and no obfuscation.

    I can recall the 1941 film called The 49th Parallel. It somehow gave the impression that the dividing line between the two countries was this parallel. General impressions way back can give rise to mistakes as I have found out to my embarrassment.

    Anyway a huge propaganda film. Created by Pressburger and Powell to bring US opinion to support Britain WW2. Seven bad Nazi U-Boat crew and one "good, anti-Nazi German". Hiking across Canada. Of course the attack on Pearl Harbor did bring the USA into the war, not British propaganda.

    Just in:

    Man converted to Islam this year. Neighbours concerned over his attitude of late. Conservative MP questioned the Prime Minister on the happening. I think we are going to see a red flag warning about our military. Already being called terrorism by some.

    One less terrorist in any case.

    Could this man be that kind of so called journalist who deliberately "pushes buttons" to make people angry?. I say this because on doing a little research the man has opined on dogs.He said that since many people eat pigs, they should eat dogs (probably choked himself with laughter at this provocation).

    I remember the six million circulation Daily Mirror in England in the 1950's. It was found that the way to be read is to be so provocative- it angered the readers. Boring them with platitudes was said to be a sure loser. It was also found that the journalist of that era hardly believed a damn thing they wrote, in some cases. Laughed themselves silly- which was not hard.

    I have the CBC report stating:

    Martin Rouleau- aged 25 years. Said known to police and became radicalised.

    Prayers for the two soldiers, harming nobody and cut down. This cowardly swine is well dead.
