  • The West Betrays the Kurds (US did help Kurds, Efrin is Turk war crime)

    The Western media have ignored the fate of the Kurds, the people who defeated ISIS for us. UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson tweeted, "Turkey is right to want to keep its borders secure". The West gave the Turks a green light to massacre the Kurds. The Kurds today, like the Czechs in 1938, were sacrificed in vain. The West has betrayed the Kurds three times in the last three years. They were our ideal allies. They opened their cities, such as Erbil, to tens of thousands of Iraqi Christians expelled by ISIS from Mosul. Iraqi Kurdistan is today the...
  • Wendy Williams fat-shamed Kanye West and said she 'wouldn't let him be alone with his children'

    IF THERE’S ONE thing that American TV host Wendy Williams is known for, it’s speaking her mind. However, on Wednesday’s episode of The Wendy Williams Show, she took it way too far. Entering the studio to the usual cheering and applause, Wendy sat down and said: "So! On another note, Kanye West has really lost his mind. And I don’t mean that in a humorous way, we’ve seen him on a slippery slope for a long time. This is really sad, y’all." Wendy offered the audience some context on Kanye’s tweets and his involvement with Donald Trump. Initially, she seemed...
  • Kanye West's Celebrity Friends Are Unfollowing Him on Twitter in Droves

    Following a tweet storm during which he vocalized support for Donald Trump, celebrities have started unfollowing Kanye West on Twitter. Not exactly shocking. Pop Crave reports that Justin Bieber, BTS, The Weeknd, Rihanna, Ariana Grande, Harry Styles, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, and Kendrick Lamar are among the musicians who have unfollowed the rapper in the wake of his comments, which YIKES. A quick perusal also indicates that John Legend isn't following Kanye, nor is Chrissy Teigen, Khloé Kardashian, or Kylie Jenner (though it's possible this has nothing to do with his recent tweets). While a few celebs have supported Kanye...

    Kanye West is no stranger to controversy. After Hurricane Katrina, Kayne went on live TV to tell the world that President Bush didn’t care about black people. At the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, he ruined Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech by jumping on stage and telling the world that Beyoncé should have won. Now, Kanye is stirring up the most controversy yet by telling the world he likes President Trump. Here is the tweet to prove it: You don't have to agree with trump but the mob can't make me not love him. We are both dragon energy. He is...

    They were the true pioneers of the American West – thousands of young women aged 18 to 30 who worked six days a week at ground-breaking rail station diners that created dozens of small towns scattered 100 miles apart from each other in the Southwest and West. The majority of the brave women had traveled to these tiny and seemingly uninhabited areas leaving everything they knew behind, including their childhood homes and parents, just to have a chance to earn a decent wage and be independent, while unknowingly helping to change the landscape of the new U.S. territory gained after...
  • Vanity: where is Trump going with the FBI swamp sedition?

    It seems Trump may have known about some of the nefarious activities of the US intelligence shortly after becoming elected, possibly even before. It seems like information about what Top members of the FBI have done is being released Drip by drip. What do you think Trump intends to do ultimately, and when. What are your predictions of what will happen?

    The Federalist ^ | August 25, 2017 | Samuel Buntz
    When the white supremacists assembled on the pleasant greens of Charlottesville were not spluttering racial invective and inciting violence, they occasionally tried to explain their ideology—which, admittedly, does not differ greatly from spluttering racial invective and inciting violence. Yet there is a sliver of argument amid all that hate. Some have taken to wearing T-shirts urging us to “Defend Europe” or “Defend the West.” These statements imitate conservative arguments about preserving Western civilization against decline, while contradicting the meaning of those arguments and tarnishing them with racist associations. The insights of Ralph Waldo Emerson and Emily Dickinson, Sappho and Leo...

    The Nazi LARPers and Confederate cosplayers at Charlottesville, along with their alt-right supporters, frequently justify themselves by claiming to be defenders of white culture and heritage. However, it is unclear how a Nazi Tiki-torch parade accomplishes this. Nonetheless, let us consider the merits of the claim, which is, in part at least, a response to leftwing identity politics that relentlessly racialize everything. Unsurprisingly, endlessly essentializing and demonizing whiteness helped produce some whites who accept the premise of racial identity but ditch the conclusion of white guilt in favor of white supremacy. Are they correct that there is a distinct white...

    In Warsaw today (7:15 a.m. ET), President Trump delivers what the White House sees as one of the most important speeches of his presidency. He won't identify himself with the nationalist populist ruling party in Poland, but has something grander in mind. The president will present himself as the leader of the West during an address to thousands of Poles in a public square. Trump's team, led by senior policy adviser Stephen Miller, saw an opportunity to use the story of the Polish resistance as the setting for a new rallying cry to Western civilization. From Trump's text: "The fundamental...
  • Trump to say Western civilisation is at stake in Warsaw speech

    BBC ^ | 23 minutes ago
    US President Donald Trump is to argue that the future of Western civilisation is at stake in a keynote speech in the Polish capital Warsaw. Holding up Poland as an example of a country ready to defend civilisation, he will warn against the threats of "terrorism and extremism". Poland's conservative government shares Mr Trump's hostile view of immigration and strong sense of sovereignty. Mr Trump is in Poland ahead of a G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany. "Because as the Polish experience reminds us - the defence of the West ultimately rests not only on means but also on the will...

    It is perhaps somewhat ironic that the last time Americans were informed this incessantly of the threat Russia posed to the United States, it was called the Soviet Union and the Left was insisting that everything was being overblown. This time, in spite of a glaring lack of evidence, it is the Left that is announcing from its perch in the mainstream media that Donald Trump is Vladimir Putin’s puppet, and that Russia is the evil puppet-master pulling the strings of American democracy. The sinister Russian bear is growling in the East, we are told, and we should all be...
  • The Push For World Oneness...the West in prophecy pt 8

    And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.  And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there.  And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for mortar.  And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole...

    Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.(Psalm 2:1-3)Psalm 2 is as apt a description as any I have seen in scripture, of what has happened to the Western World over the pas 100 years. The Psalmist asks two very pertinent questions; “Why are the nations of the world in an uproar?”“Why do the peoples imagine a vain thing?” or “Why are...

    Thou, O king, sawest, and behold a great image. This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before thee; and the form thereof was terrible. This image’s head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass, His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay. Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces. ( Daniel 2:31-34)The Pagan king of Babylon had a dream, granted by...

    Americans know that in 1492 Christopher Columbus "sailed the ocean blue," but how many know that in the same year the heroic Catholic monarchs Ferdinand and Isabella conquered the Moors in Grenada? Americans would also probably recognize 1588 as the year of the defeat of the Spanish Armada by Francis Drake and the rest of Queen Elizabeth’s pirates. It was a tragedy for the Catholic kingdom of Spain and a triumph for the Protestant British Empire, and the defeat determined the kind of history that would one day be taught in American schools: Protestant British history. As a result, 1571,...

    Adam West, the ardent actor who managed to keep his tongue in cheek while wearing the iconic cowl of the Caped Crusader on the classic 1960s series Batman, has died. He was 88. West, who was at the pinnacle of pop culture after Batman debuted in January 1966, only to see his career fall victim to typecasting after the ABC show flamed out, died Friday night in Los Angeles after a short battle with leukemia, a family spokesperson said. West died peacefully surrounded by his family and is survived by his wife Marcelle, six children, five grandchildren and two great-grandchildren....
  • Seven Spirits Worse...the West in prophecy pt 3

    When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.(Matthew 12:34-36),There was a time when the continent of Europe was as...
