It gets crazier and crazier

The following is a comment from Zngr, who keeps us updated on issues Nordic. Even for that PC lunatic asylum this story beggars belief.

Read and weep.

"In fact the previous story reminds me of an Egyptian man who gained asylum in Norway in the same basis - being a homosexual who might suffer some sort of discomfort or persecution in Egypt. After gaining asylum he moved in with a 17 year old girl and made her pregnant.

After that he took a job as a taxi driver, and as apparently Egyptian homosexuals tend to do, impregnated two more women outside of the relationship (one has to wonder what kind of women really have sex with these guys, if he got two pregnant - who knows how many other casual relationships he might've had).

On the side of his job as a taxi driver, he serial raped eight (8) women, one of who was traumatized to such extent she committed suicide after the brutal rape.The Egyptian man was awarded citizenship after the Norwegian immigration officials in their wisdom decided deportation was out of the question because the man was, after all, a homosexual. The state tried to revoke his citizenship but the process failed as according to his lawyer "there was no sufficient justification" so any deportation attempts in the future will be now be eternally impossible.

The man still lives happily in Norway and will continue to do so - to the immense suffering of how many other Norwegian women we cannot guess.Well, maybe this homosexual who must be protected and treasures by the Norwegian state is a at least a stand up father for his three Norwegian-Egyptian kids. I mean who are we to judge?"

Well, we reap what we sow. There is no hope.

The MSM sinks ever lower

“Who” my old buddy Mick asked me, ‘invented the super computer?’ ‘Seymour Cray of course’ I answered smugly. After all, I'm paid to know such things. But then again, so is Mick. And he’s also known for taking the piss. ‘Well, not according to the BBC, or CNN, or Time magazine.’ He replied with a smile, adding ‘it was Philip Emeagwali.’

What? Who the fuck is Philip whatsisname?’

‘The inventor of the supercomputer, the winner of the Gordon Bell Prize in 1989’
.

Now I was really bothered as in fact I'd never even heard of this guy or the Gordon Bell Prize. First chance I got I set about closing this shameful gap in my knowledge. Sure enough, the BBC featured ‘Dr. Philip Emeagwali’ in their ‘Digital Giants’ series ‘in which the digital world's top thinkers share their visions of the future’. Indeed.
.
TIME magazine gushed that ‘the Web owes much of its existence to Philip Emeagwali", and yes, CNN describes him as "a father of the Internet".
.
For good measure no less than that noted computer scientist Bill Clinton designated him "one of the great minds of the Information Age" He’s also been described as ‘the Bill Gates of Africa’ (which isn't saying a lot, admittedly’) and his face adorns a Nigerian postage stamp because, apparently “he advertises the genius of our [Nigerian] people.”

Thanks to Dave C. for this link. Check it out.
.
Now how in God’s name had I failed to ever hear of this guy, never read a paper of his in the journals, never met him at a conference?

The reason is simple: He’s a total fraud from start to finish, as even the most cursory search on the Web would show. Such a cursory search on the Web of course appears to have been beyond the capacity of the major ‘news’ agencies and Prez Bill.

Anyway, here’s a quick summary of what must rank as one of the most grotesque misrepresentations ever in the history of computing, or indeed science in general.

Emeagwali has no Ph.D., having failed twice to convince the University of Michigan that he deserved one. This even after he took a court case on the basis that the decision was “a violation of his civil rights and that the university had discriminated against him in several ways because of his race”. But he wasn't even able to use the courts reverse the University’s decision. Now as a frequent PhD examiner I can tell you that all universities step on eggshells to give any half literate oaf a doctorate provided he’s from a ‘disadvantaged minority’. The fact that UM felt they had to go to court, and that they won, shows that his thesis and viva must have been abysmally BAAAD.

Now a genius like this should have dozens, if not hundreds, of papers published in peer-reviewed journals. The sum total based on my research……..nil. Nada. The same nil figure applies to inventions and patents, despite his claims to have ‘more than fifty’. These two statistics alone show that the guy doesn’t even have the official status of a junior lecturer in an obscure polytechnic.

Honestly.

So what about the basis for his real claim to fame, ‘winning’ the Gordon Bell Prize “supercomputing's Nobel Prize”? Now there’s a fairly consistent correlation between the prestige of a prize and the money it pays. For example, a Nobel Prize enriches the lucky recipient with about $1.5 million, and computing’s Turing Prize by the less modest $100,000. You really start going downmarket once the value descends to about $10,000 or less. And how much did the prestigious Gordon Bell Prize pay? The princely sum of $1000!!! One thousand dollars.
.
And as I’ll show later, the genius only shared the prize, netting in total $200. That's right, 200 bucks. You’d win more on a pub quiz, but he’s built a world-wide reputation on it!
.
Still, let’s not be niggardly (whoops!). It seems that “in 1989, he programmed more than 65,000 processors to perform the world's fastest computation: 3.1 billion calculations per second. The feat smashed the previous record and proved that a network of small computers could outperform more powerful, expensive supercomputers.”
.
In fact the prize in this instance was won by a team from Mobil Oil “whose entry ran twice as fast as Emeagwali's, with 20% more cost efficiency.” So why was Emeagwali cut in? For good old diversity reasons - the judges wet their knickers at the thought of a black winner, and were also reluctant to have Mobil as the sole winners. So Emeagwali in effect won nothing, but was awarded $200 out of misguided reverse racism.

And folks, that's the full extent of his verifiable achievements. And did he achieve even that? Well, we learn that he ‘was associated with a team that developed an optimization program for the oil industry’. My, my, the plot thickens. He was ‘associated with’ the team. (Black History Month anyone?) Given that he’s lied about everything else, isn't at least a strong possibility that he copied the source code for this application, repackaged it, and submitted it as his own?

Make that a certainty, not a possibility. Remember he hasn’t a single peer-reviewed research paper published. His claimed achievement would have generated a rich seam in the most prestigious journals. He’s have been dining out on that in terms of published papers for years. In fact he hasn’t even appeared once in any of the thousands of Requests for Comments that go into the development of Internet technical standards. Anyone who has made even the remotest contribution, let alone being ‘a father of the Internet’ would have appeared in dozens of them. His name appears nowhere.

In effect, he has no verifiable achievements of any kind in computing. Yet he’s had the unquestioning adulation I referred to earlier heaped on him. And you’ll be glad to know that he and all his extended family ‘have taken up residence in the US’. I'm sure all my American readers will be thrilled with this news.

How has this outrage happened? I think you all know how it happened. Any black who can read and hasn’t recently killed anyone will get catapulted into the genius category. Hasn’t the whole thing degenerated into a complete farce? We’re in Keystone Cops territory here.

And what about the prestigious MSM organs I referred to earlier? Well, Google this guy’s name and by the third entry you’ll start reading about the fraud dimension. Where were CNN, the BBC and Time when it came to this kind of rudimentary fact-checking. As I said in this post about the MSM, they’re not only useless, they’re misleading us, and doing it deliberately.

A story for our times

In South Yorkshire, a fire destroyed a multi story block of flats. A Jamaican family of six con artists lived on the first floor, and all six died in the fire.
.
An Islamic group of seven Pakistani welfare cheats, all illegally in the country, lived on the second floor, and they, too, all perished in the fire. Six Albanian ex-cons lived on the 3rd floor and they too, died. Four Afghanistan families in the 2 flats on the 4th floor also perished.
..
One white couple lived on the top floor. They survived.
.
Relatives of the deceased and local do-gooders were furious. They travelled into Leeds and quickly demanded a meeting with the fire chief.On camera, they loudly demanded to know why the Blacks, Muslims, Albanians and Afghanis all died in the fire and only the white couple survived.
.
The fire chief quietly replied, "They were both at work."

The Equality Industry comes up trumps!

[Discovered this draft post from some time back. A little bit out of date, but worth a read anyway as I provide, if I may say so, some valuable suggestions for British educational needs]

Lee Jasper is one of the army of ‘race equality advisors’ that infests the whole western world. (You won't find them anywhere else, by the way, despite which, the West is the only bad boy on race). He was born to a white fucking idiot woman and a Jamaican ‘father’ (in Jamaican terms a father’s role ends once he’s impregnated the woman). Mother never saw 'dad' again, and Lee went on to replicate his family values with gusto - having literally a dozen children by half a dozen different women.
.
He was recently fired from his ‘job’ as ‘race advisor’ to London’s ex-Mayor Ken Livingstone. This followed a number of scandals, including a charge of sexual harassment and the, ahem, ‘inappropriate disposal’ of £500,000 of taxpayers’ money. He was acquitted of the latter after an ‘internal investigation’ – i.e. an investigation set up by himself, and Ken declaimed "I trust Lee with my life”.
.
Obviously guilty, then.

Now Lee wants to reintroduce educational apartheid. This follows a research report from Warwick University which unearthed the stunning news that black students are “less likely to be entered for higher-tier science and maths exams because of low teacher expectations”. So that's the reason!
.
It also noted “that black Caribbean pupils are among those more likely to be excluded from school, or have special educational needs, including behavioural, emotional and social difficulties.”
.
Well now, isn't that amazing? And there was me, thinking that blacks were model students, all going on to take the science and engineering arenas by storm. Just shows the value of Social Studies departments in universities, doesn’t it?

Lee said it was “time the black community ran its own schools, with black teachers and black governors”. Now did I ever think the day would come when I'd be on my knees with gratitude to an Equality Industry parasite such as Lee? Just imagine, all the blacks having their own schools (behind barbed wire fences). And as we all know, the cause of this failure is not that most of them are thick and lazy, rather it’s due to, as Lee calls it, "institutional racism" within education. We know that, Lee.
.
He then went on to say that black schools and colleges could prove to be a "beacon of excellence" for the black community, before collapsing with laughter . "The fact is, it's time the black community ran its own schools, devised a curriculum that suited the needs of our children, employed teachers that look like the young people they are teaching” Well, and there was me thinking it was only whites who won't assimilate and that race was a social construct, with us all being the same under the skin. Where could I have picked up those ideas?
.
He added that “the US has many historically black colleges and universities. They cater for the needs of the African American and they excel”

Yes indeed. As a former academic I can think of…..er….well, none, actually.

Still, let’s not get pedantic.

One comment in particular interests me from the last quotation “employed teachers that look like the young people they are teaching”. Hello Lee! There are already thousands of such schools. All over sub-Saharan Africa. Any chance, Lee, that you’ll decamp over there, together with your, er students?
.
No?
.
I didn’t think so.
.
Now as I said, I'm an enthusiastic supporter of this initiative – really – and to help it along I hereby offer, completely free, my input to the curriculum that, as Lee puts “suited the needs of our children”

Module 1: Mugging for beginners
.
Module 2: Selecting the ideal stab-proof vest

Module 3: Practical housebreaking – tips and tricks

Module 4: Narcotics logistics and evasion techniques

Module 5: Management structures for a profitable pimping operation.

Module 6 (optional): How to be understood in English

I'm actually beginning to feel quite excited about this venture!

What I've learned from the Srebrenica massacre

Today is the fifteenth anniversary of the Srebrenica massacre when 8,000 Bosnian Muslims were murdered by Serbian forces. This was one of the very few ethnic conflicts where there was unalloyed good on one side, unalloyed bad on the other.

The goodness was personified by the Bosnian Muslim leader Alija "Grandpa" Izetbegovic. I'm sure most of you will recall that he was lionised by the western media and political elite. For example:

Newsweek magazine: "The government of Bosnian President Alija Izetbegovic…has always been committed to a multiethnic society."

. Knight-Ridder: " [Izetbegovic is] struggling for democracy, human rights, and a multiethnic country."
Warren Zimmerman, former US Ambassador to Yugoslavia "Izetbegovic was…A devout Muslim but no extremist, he consistently advocated the preservation of a multinational Bosnia."
.
He was such a good moderate tolerant inclusive guy that NATO intervened on his behalf, repeatedly and massively bombed the Bosnian Serbs, allowed Iranian weapons reach Izetbegovic's army and facilitated the import foreign mujahideen into Bosnia.
..
And of course such help ensured that the good guys, the moderates, won. Which is just as well. For example, could you just imagine if the nutcase responsible for the following ravings had seized power instead?
.
The Islamic Order is the union of religion and politics and [means] the impossibility of confusing the Islamic Order with the non-Islamic systems, the unity of religion and law, education and force, ideals and interests, spiritual society and State…the Muslim does not exist at all as an independent individual. There is no secular principle, and the State must be for Muslims the scrupulous expression of the moral and conceptual pillar of the religion."
.
"It is not in fact possible for there to be any peace or coexistence between ‘the Islamic Religion’ and non-Islamic social and political institutions…"

.
This same raving fundamentalist quotes approvingly from Mein Kampf the Koran to the effect that “the killing of an infidel pleases Allah and association with them is a graver sin than murder."
.
And finally, on taking power “the Islamic movement may, or rather should, begin by seizing power as soon as it possesses a good measure of moral and numerical strength, allowing it not only to overthrow the non-Islamic power, but also to establish the new Islamic power."
.

Ok, you can probably see where I'm going with this. And yes, the nutcase in question is the same moderate democratic tolerant Alija Izetbegovic. All the extracts are from his Islamic Manifesto, which was reissued in the early 1990s just before Bosnia was about to explode. So he made no secret of his views and plans. They were there for everyone to see.
.
Yet the western MSM outdid themselves in grovelling dhimmitude to explain it all away. The Financial Times informed its readers that the Manifesto was “a political tract which sought to reconcile European democratic principles with (Sunni) Islamic teaching.”
.
The Hero of Sarajevo

Another myth constructed by the MSM was that of The Hero of Sarajevo. This fantasy had Izetbegovic remaining in Sarajevo throughout the brutal Serbian siege, risking his life and those of his family daily. Agence France-Presses claimed Izetbegovic as a “hero of Muslim resistance…who led his country to independence, won worldwide sympathy by running the government from sandbagged buildings during the … siege of Sarajevo, and “walked to his office through the bombardment… under constant threat from artillery and sniper attacks.”
.
But Bosnia became only a ruined protectorate, and Izetbegovic’s alleged heroics were a media ploy. In reality, Izetbegovic ordered thousands of Sarajevo residents to work and live under constant threat, allowing only those with special government permits to leave the city, while his family was sent to safety and he himself retreated into a bunker. If the city was the Serbs’ hostage, its residents were Izetbegovic’s.
.
The old bastard finally croaked in 2003, to much joyous acclaim from his Croatian and Serbian fellow countrymen. The death was the occasion for the MSM to get off on another orgy of adulation, with a reprise of all the earlier bullshit. We had Reuters assuring us that “Izetbegovic never wanted war as the price of Bosnia’s independence”, while the BBC, on cue, that he had “worked desperately to preserve [Yugoslavia]”. This latter comment was so grotesquely and demonstrably inaccurate, such a monstrous reversal of the truth, that it must be attributed solely to malign intent.
.
The lesson I take from the Izetbegovic myth has little to do with him or his so-called country. It is that the messages we get from the MSM and the political elites are not just useless and unreliable, they are for the most part deliberate distortions. In further reinforces my commitment, and hopefully yours, to continue to seek the truth from less conventional sources.

Down Mexico way.......

It’s your typical Mexican city. Filthy streets, rubbish everywhere, as are beggars and seemingly abandoned children. Shopping carts lie abandoned under the ubiquitous graffiti, rattle-trap cars career around the badly paved streets, unemployment is rife, and what employment exists is mostly of the low skilled manual type.

Although the Mexican flag flutters proudly above some municipal buildings, it’s hard to see what there is to be proud of. In addition to the violence, poverty and squalor, you have a municipal police force that’s corrupt from top to bottom, at least half of its members having criminal records. Their activities are largely confined to shaking down the townspeople for bribes and other favours.

And again, par for the course, the municipality is financially bankrupt. So bankrupt that they’re firing virtually all their employees, including police and firemen. They just can't pay for that shit any more. The city has in effect, become totally dysfunctional.

So what?’ you yawn, ‘this is just a typical Mexican city.’ True, apart from the fact that this particular one is located in the US of A. Assuming of course that you still consider Southern California to be part of the US.

I'm talking here of the king of ‘sanctuary cities’, Maywood, on the outskirts of LA.

It wasn’t always totally dysfunctional. Forty years ago it was a white working class town, with high employment and low crime. Now it is low employment and high crime. Back then it was 95% white. Now it’s 95% Hispanic. And it shows.

This is the canary in the coalmine for California (see this), and in due course the whole country, And undoubtedly for Europe as well and we struggle to emulate such achievements on this side of the pond.

God help us all!

"I'm 63 and I'm Tired" by Robert A. Hall

I'm 63. Except for one semester in college when jobs were scarce and a six-month period when I was between jobs, but job-hunting every day, I've worked, hard, since I was 18. Despite some health challenges, I still put in 50-hour weeks, and haven't called in sick in seven or eight years. I make a good salary, but I didn't inherit my job or my income, and I worked to get where I am.
.
Given the economy, there's no retirement in sight, and I'm tired. Very tired. I'm tired of being told that I have to "spread the wealth" to people who don't have my work ethic. I'm tired of being told the government will take the money I earned, by force if necessary, and give it to people too lazy to earn it.
.
I'm tired of being told that I have to pay more taxes to "keep people in their homes." Sure, if they lost their jobs or got sick, I'm willing to help. But if they bought McMansions at three times the price of our paid-off, $250,000 condo, on one-third of my salary, then let the left-wing Congress-critters who passed Fannie and Freddie and the Community Reinvestment Act that created the bubble help them with their own money.
.
I'm tired of being told how bad America is by left-wing millionaires like Michael Moore, George Soros and Hollywood entertainers who live in luxury because of the opportunities America offers. In thirty years, if they get their way, the United States will have the economy of Zimbabwe, the freedom of the press of China, the crime and violence of Mexico, the tolerance for Christian people of Iran, and the freedom of speech of Venezuela.
.
I'm tired of being told that Islam is a "Religion of Peace," when every day I can read dozens of stories of Muslim men killing their sisters, wives and daughters for their family "honor"; of Muslims rioting over some slight offense; of Muslims murdering Christians and Jews because they aren't "believers"; of Muslims burning schools for girls; of Muslims stoning teenage rape victims to death for "adultery"; of Muslims mutilating the genitals of little girls; all in the name of Allah because the Qur'an and Shari'a law tells them to.
.
I'm tired of being told that "race doesn't matter" in the post-racial world of Obama when it's all that matters in affirmative action jobs, lower college admission and graduation standards for minorities (harming them the most), government contract set-asides, tolerance for the ghetto culture of violence and fatherless children that hurts minorities more than anyone, and in the appointment of U.S. Senators from Illinois. I'm tired of a news media that thinks Bush's fundraising and inaugural expenses were obscene, but that think Obama's, at triple the cost, were wonderful; that slammed Palin, with two years as governor, for being too inexperienced for VP, but touted Obama with three years as senator as potentially the best president ever.
.
I'm tired of being told that out of "tolerance for other cultures" we must let Saudi Arabia use our oil money to fund mosques and mandrassa Islamic schools to preach hate in America, while no American group is allowed to fund a church, synagogue or religious school in Saudi Arabia to teach love and tolerance.
.
I'm tired of being told that drug addicts have a disease, and I must help support and treat them, and pay for the damage they do. Did a giant germ rush out of a dark alley, grab them, and stuff white powder up their noses while they tried to fight it off? I don't think Gay people choose to be Gay, but I damn sure think druggies chose to take drugs.
.
I'm tired of illegal aliens being called "undocumented workers," especially the ones who aren't working, but are living on welfare or crime. What's next? Calling drug dealers, "Undocumented Pharmacists"? And, no, I'm not against Hispanics. Most of them are Catholic, and it's been a few hundred years since Catholics wanted to kill me for my religion. I'm willing to fast track for citizenship any Hispanic person, who can speak English, doesn't have a criminal record and who is self-supporting without family on welfare, or who serves honorably for three years in our military.... Those are the citizens we need.
.
I'm tired of latte liberals and journalists, who would never wear the uniform of the Republic themselves, or let their entitlement-handicapped kids near a recruiting station, trashing our military. They and their kids can sit at home, never having to make split-second decisions under life and death circumstances, and bad mouth better people than themselves. Do bad things happen in war? You bet. Do our troops sometimes misbehave? Sure. Does this compare with the atrocities that were the policy of our enemies for the last fifty years and still are? Not even close. So here's the deal. I'll let myself be subjected to all the humiliation and abuse that was heaped on terrorists at Abu Ghraib or Gitmo, and the critics can let themselves be subject to captivity by the Muslims, who tortured and beheaded Daniel Pearl in Pakistan, or the Muslims who tortured and murdered Marine Lt. Col. William Higgins in Lebanon, or the Muslims who ran the blood-spattered Al Qaeda torture rooms our troops found in Iraq, or the Muslims who cut off the heads of schoolgirls in Indonesia, because the girls were Christian. Then we'll compare notes. British and American soldiers are the only troops in history that civilians came to for help and handouts, instead of hiding from in fear.
.
I'm tired of hearing wealthy athletes, entertainers and politicians of both parties talking about innocent mistakes, stupid mistakes or youthful mistakes, when we all know they think their only mistake was getting caught. I'm tired of people with a sense of entitlement, rich or poor. Speaking of poor, I'm tired of hearing people with air-conditioned homes, color TVs and two cars called poor. The majority of Americans didn't have that in 1970, but we didn't know we were "poor." The poverty pimps have to keep changing the definition of poor to keep the dollars flowing. I'm real tired of people who don't take responsibility for their lives and actions. I'm tired of hearing them blame the government, or discrimination or big-whatever for their problems.
.
Yes, I'm damn tired. But I'm also glad to be 63. Because, mostly, I'm not going to have to see the world these people are making. I'm just sorry for my granddaughter.
