  • UCLA lefties blockade Milo's "Dangerous Faggot" speech

    05/31/2016 7:52:51 PM PDT · by gaijin · 21 replies
    Milo Yiannopoulis is a colorful, rightishly-inclined journalist at Breitbart currently touring American college campuses as part of his "Dangerous Faggot Tour". Shortly before 7 pm PST, two dozen left-wing activists blockaded the lecture hall entrance, preventing the entry of over 500 people who had paid to attend the event. At De Paul University in Chicago last week, BLM charged the stage and forcibly grabbed the microphone, occupied the stage and put a stop to the event after De Paul University administrators told security and police to take no action to stop the disruption. UCLA students trapped inside the blockaded event...

    Trump-supporting mortgage banker born in Burlingame, CA. walks through hundreds of violent, masked, profanity-spewing lefties, totally on his own after a recent Trump speech at the local Hyatt Regency near SFO. The tall, suited, brave professional is repeatedly sworn at, jostled, punched, and kicked as he walks along, defiantly. His red Trump hat is repeatedly torn off his head and stolen by pro-immigration activists and racist anti-racists. This is the most violent Trump-related encounter I have ever seen. I believe this is reliable foreshadowing of what is to come and I think THIS is what the tone will be after...

    More and more it seems a real possibility that Mittens might get into the race. Rubio is a little shaky and The Establishment is getting a little desperate. How would you react? If you encountered a neighbor you really liked, what would you say about this? Would you vote for another Republican again..?

    Many social sciences and humanities faculties in Japan are to close after universities were ordered to “serve areas that better meet society’s needs”. Of the 60 national universities that offer courses in these disciplines, 26 have confirmed that they will either close or scale back their relevant faculties at the behest of Japan’s government. It follows a letter from education minister Hakuban Shimomura sent to all of Japan’s 86 national universities, which called on them to take “active steps to abolish [social science and humanities] organizations or to convert them to serve areas that better meet society’s needs”. The ministerial...

    There are over 100 pre-oil change treatments products for removing engine sludge. Each product endorser swears on a stack of Bibles that IT is the best --the others are all dastardly liars. But see, I trust Freepers: Is there a stand-out product, detergent, or some DIY product for gasoline-powered car engines that average Joe's can buy or formulate and run in their engine for 10 minutes right before an oil change in order to free up engine sludge...?

  • Russian Vid shows Stealthy Shipping Containerization of Missiles, UAV's, Command Modules

    Some five years ago Russia marketed a disturbing new missile product; the modularized "klub" missile in 3 variants; anti-ship, anti-sub and land attack. Fair enough, but the scary part was the innovative packaging --they were presented in the form of ready-to-fire units fully integrated into common shipping containers, complete with vertical launch system, booster unit with thrust vectoring, etc. Conceivably a totally innocuous-looking transport ship could be packing Armageddon, or close, and make it's hostile intentions detectable only at the last possible moment as it approached an unwitting target --the dream scenario of any bad actor. The Russians appear to...

    On Nov 21st of last year Harry Reid chose the "Nuclear Option", breaking 40 years of Senate tradition of according the minority party a generous say in the country's affairs: Reid's claim was that under the traditional rules "the Senate is broken" --under Reid's new rules, federal judicial nominees and executive-office appointments would "negotiate roadblocks" and advance to confirmation votes by a **simple majority** of senators, rather than the 60-vote supermajority that had been the requirement.Reid's new rules meant the Senate minority would suddenly have a smaller voice, a condition much less generous and much more typical of legislative bodies...

    Five minute handycam videos show crash of apparent SU-22 amidst AAA and surface to air missile fire. Presumably taken by FSA rebels, video clip collection shows six different views of the same event. First clip is totally inconclusive, however subsequent clips in the collection suggest the most likely cause was a successful MANPADS hit. Fire is visible from the aircraft tailcone as the strike aircraft arcs through the sky and strikes the ground in a huge ball of smoke, with no pilot ejection discernible. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ja9divCVW94 After the success of Reagan's post-Lockerbie Libyan air raids Gaddaffi went on a years-long...

    Just heard from Fox news 15 minutes ago that second drone above Bengazi came OUTSIDE Libya --it came from SIGONELLA, Sicily...! It was UNARMED and replaced the first drone that egressed owing to low fuel. For unmanned drone observation of an ongoing battle against an American target is it a requirement that cross-border ingress authorization come from **POTUS**..? Because THIS might have required that. Does anyone know? I'm asking because if that is so, then what is possible is that gayMuzzie permitted drone observation but required that it be UNARMED...!

    Dale Carlsen was about 24 years old and had been merely selling mattresses, but finally Dale got frustrated and went into the biz for himself. He was coming up on having to make a payment on the loan for his new, tiny mattress company. He didn't have much money, and this loan was at over 20% interest, ok? Worse was that Dale had chosen the location of his first mattress store in gritty South Sacramento, near Sac State, alongside some train tracks, next to a flea market. He'd thought the flea market foot traffic would bring customers, but in fact...

They evacuated the whole hotel --I can see them outside in the rain over there, with numerous emergency vehicles outside...

Finally the film shows panic-stricken individuals emerging from their homes, breaking into a dead run for their lives. Students safe above watching incredulously call out down the hill, egging them on to run faster as the chaotic inky black rages inexorably on...

They ask to see his Foreigner Registration Card, something that all foreign residents in Japan must carry on their person at all times (I look very foreign and this has happened to...

    *Extremely surprising* 30-sec clip shows effect of helicopter-borne hellfire attack on non-armored truck with ~8 passengers. Engine & driver's compartment utterly destroyed, but after smoke clears the 6 combatant personnel in back are revealed to have survive, scattering like deer. The six are slightly stunned, but clearly combat effective. Follow-up deconfliction with 30-mm clearly required. Follow-up comments at source show technical improvements to the hellfire missile featured make repeat failures of this type less likely going forward (without supplemental sleeve, warhead blast is hyperdirectional for a non-armored target like a truck). http://www.apacheclips.com/media/5938/Hellfire_Problem/

    Seven minute clip features rare FLIR footage from aerial platforms on the southern border of the US. Footage shows illegals hiking and hiding in small groups and large. Aerial personnel vector ground BP officers to illegals unseen. Radio chatter shows a lack of efficient terms and SOPs for flyer control arresting officers on foot. Sometimes groups of 30 or more are seen scattering into the desert, upon realization of their discovery & impending arrest. Encouraging, but who knows how soon we'll see them again...? We don't know what happens to them after their arrest.

    The Obama adminstration must react responsibly to China’s declaration that military operations in space are inevitable, a top China expert says. “How will the US react to Chinese diplomatic efforts in light of the PLA’s blunt statements on space warfare? This is something the Obama administration has to take into account,” said Dean Cheng, China specialist at Washington’s Heritage Foundation. “Are we going to see outrage, any meaningful reactions to the Chinese statements or again that it was someone speaking out of school and we just aren’t sure.” Cheng was referring to what appears to mark a major shift...

    RPG's are cheap, lethal, and they're everywhere. They operate by focusing a jet of explosive gas on one tiny point of armor, piercing it with a tiny stream. Currently, heavy "birdcage"-type armor serves to prematurely detonate that gas stream, diminishing it to a level that proves comparatively harmless --but cage armor is HEAVY. This new armor concept is like a car air bag; the incoming warhead detonates, emitting a recognizable flash. The special light flash is picked up by the vehicle receiver, causing micro-second release of the airbag on the vehicle area of interest. The lightweight but sturdy airbag meets...

A couple of them MAYBE have plastic fangs they bought 10 minutes prior in order to...

    In its pages, Omar (and his mother) reveal that the Clinton administration failed in a major assassination attempt of Osama bin Laden, just days after the 1998 East Africa embassy bombings. This is something that has often been speculated but never confirmed. Former insiders like Richard Clarke say Omar bin Laden’s account of the assassination failure appears to be credible. And if this is the case, it might explain a little more about what documents Sandy Berger really had stashed away.

    Japan is negotiating a contract with the United States that will provide Tokyo with sensitive information about the systems and performance of the F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) as it seeks to evaluate the aircraft in a bid to procure a next-generation fighter (FX) for the Japan Air Self-Defense Force. A source at the Japanese Ministry of Defence (MoD) told Jane's on 6 October that the contract is expected to be signed shortly....the development signals a clear move by Japan towards the JSF - and away from the F-22 Raptor ...the MoD has been requesting the US government...

    This site details high-quality close-up photos of their realistic Barak Obama doll line. With accessories, doll can be configured as gangster, rapper, or more fantastic roles, like rigorous intellectual. A smaller, kool-aid drinking fan (or DC journlists) could feature the dolls as experienced, inspiring leader with concrete plans. The photos are not to be missed, would provide good Obama spoof fodder for future critical articles, parodies, etc.

    The ability of U.S. ground troops to safely navigate the gauntlet of the urban battlefield has been greatly enhanced through the development of the VeraTech Aero "Phantom Sentinel" line of Virtually Invisible VTOL UAV Surveillance platforms. The Phantom Series single blade rotorcraft has the ability to deliver close up, real time video intelligence within 75 feet of nearly any event and remain virtually undetectable to the human eye. Based on the concept of persistence of vision, the Phantom's single rotor blade has a center of rotation outside of the UAVs' physical fuselage. As the aircraft spins, it disappears from...

    Desk Jockeys vs. Border Drones The President wants it to happen. The guys on the ground want it to happen. And their bosses in DC want it to happen. But that doesn't mean the bureaucrats are going to let unmanned spy planes start patrolling the southern border. In a speech in El Paso earlier this week, President Bush said he wanted more cash for border patrol technologies, including drones. Border patrol agents -- at least the ones I visited -- thought the robo-planes did a world of good during, when they briefly had them. (And, with millions illegally entering the...
