The History Of New Year's Celebration

New Year's Day is observed on January 1, the first day of the year on the modern Gregorian calendar as well as the Julian calendar used in ancient Rome. With most countries using the Gregorian calendar as their main calendar, New Year's Day is the closest thing to being the world's only truly global public holiday, often celebrated with fireworks at the stroke of midnight as the new year starts. January 1 on the Julian calendar currently corresponds to January 14 on the Gregorian calendar, and it is on that date that followers of some of the Eastern Orthodox churches celebrate the New Year.

History

The Romans dedicated this day to Janus, the god of gates, doors, and beginnings. After Julius Caesar reformed the calendar in 46 BC and was subsequently murdered, the Roman Senate voted to deify him on the 1st January 42 BC in honour of his life and his institution of the new rationalised calendar. The month originally owes its name to the deity Janus, who had two faces, one looking forward and the other looking backward. This suggests that New Year's celebrations are founded on pagan traditions. Some have suggested this occurred in 153 BC, when it was stipulated that the two annual consuls (after whose names the years were identified) entered into office on that day, though no consensus exists on the matter.  Dates in March, coinciding with the spring equinox, or commemorating the Annunciation of Jesus, along with a variety of Christian feast dates were used throughout the Middle Ages, though calendars often continued to display the months in columns running from January to December.


Among the 7th century pagans of Flanders and the Netherlands, it was the custom to exchange gifts at the New Year. This was a pagan custom deplored by Saint Eligius (died 659 or 660), who warned the Flemings and Dutchmen, "(Do not) make vetulas, [little figures of the Old Woman], little deer or iotticos or set tables [for the house-elf] at night or exchange New Year gifts or supply superfluous drinks [another Yule custom]." The quote is from the vita of Eligius written by his companion, Ouen [Companion?  Hmmm...].

Most countries in Western Europe officially adopted January 1 as New Year's Day somewhat before they adopted the Gregorian calendar. In England, the Feast of the Annunciation on March 25, was the first day of the new year until the adoption of the Gregorian Calendar in 1752. The March 25 date was known as Annunciation Style; the January 1 date was known as Circumcision Style, because this was the date of the Feast of the Circumcision, being the eighth day counting from December 25 when Christ was believed to be born. This day was christened as the beginning of the New Year by Pope Gregory as he designed the Liturgical Calendar.


Traditional and modern celebrations and customs


January 1 represents the fresh start of a new year after a period of remembrance of the passing year, including on radio, television and in newspapers, which starts in early December in countries around the world. Publications have year-end articles that review the changes during the previous year. There are also articles on planned or expected changes in the coming year.




This day is traditionally a religious feast, but since the1900s has also become an occasion to celebrate the night of December 31, called New Year's Eve. There are fireworks at midnight at the moment the new year arrives; watchnight services are also still observed by Regional celebrations

  • In European countries, the New Year is greeted with private fireworks. This day is also the occasion to make bonfires of discarded Christmas trees in some countries.

National celebrations

  • In the United Kingdom there are many celebrations across the towns and cities, particularly in Scotland.
  • In Greece and Cyprus, families and relatives switch off the lights at midnight, then celebrate by cutting the "vassilopita" (Basil's pie) which usually contains one coin or equivalent. Whoever wins expects luck for the whole year. After the pie, a traditional game of cards called "triantaena" follows.
  • In Russia and the other 14 former republics of the Soviet Union, the celebration of Old New Year or Novi God is greeted by fireworks and drinking champagne. The New Year is considered a family celebration, with a lavish dinner tables and gifts. In Moscow, the president of Russia normally counts down the final seconds of the "old year", as it is called in Russia. The Kremlin's landmark Spassky Clock Tower chimes in the new year and then the anthem starts. It is customary to make a wish while the Clock chimes, so you are anxious to do it in time!
  • In DavosSwitzerland, the final match of the Spengler Cup ice hockey Tournament is usually held on this day by tradition.
  • In the United States, it is traditional to spend this occasion together with loved ones. A toast is made to the new year, with kisses, fireworks and parties among the customs. It is popular to make a New Year's resolution, although that is optional. In the country's most famous New Year celebration in New York City, the 11,875-pound (5,386-kg), 12-foot-diameter (3.7-m) Times Square Ball located high above Times Square is lowered starting at 11:59 p.m., with a countdown from :10 seconds until :01, when it reaches the bottom of its tower. The arrival of the new year is announced at the stroke of midnight with fireworks, music and a live celebration that is broadcast worldwide.
  • In France, people are concerned about the weather that day. They regard the weather as the prediction of that year: wind blowing east, fruit will yield; wind blowing west, fish and livestock will be bumper; wind blowing south, there will be good weather all year round and wind blowing north, there will be crop failure. People like to toast the new year and drink till January 3. They think that they can't gain a beautiful year if they don't drink up all the wine left last year.

New Year's Day




The celebrations held world-wide on January 1 as part of New Year's Day commonly include the following:


  • Parades
  • American football: In the United States, January 1 is the traditional date for many post-season college football bowl games, which are usually accompanied by parades and other activities to celebrate the events.
  • Football (Soccer): In Europe, Association Football, where a Full Fixture program is usually played throughout the Premier League and the rest of the League/Non League system in England.
  • Ice hockey, most famously the Winter Classic in North America, a National Hockey League game that is played outdoors.
  • Concerts
  • Entertainment, usually enjoyed from the comfort of home.
  • Family time
  • Traditional meals
  • Church services
  • An annual dip in ice-cold water by hearty individuals, most famously by members of the Polar Bear Club.
  • Fireworks



New Year's babies


In Brittany, a common image used is that of an incarnation of Father Time (or the "Old Year") wearing a sash across his chest with the previous year printed on it passing on his duties to the Baby New Year (or the "New Year"), an infant wearing a sash with the new year printed on it.


In modern time and world-wide, the association of parenthood is with a baby's arrival, with New Year's Eve a father and mother together presenting their newborn child as the new year arrives and is celebrated.

People born on New Year's Day are commonly called New Year babies. Hospitals, such as the Dyersburg Regional Medical Center in the U.S., give out prizes to the first baby born in that hospital in the new year. These prizes are often donated by local businesses. Prizes may include various baby related items such as baby formulababy blanketsdiapers, and gift certificates to stores which specialize in baby related merchandise.


Other celebrations on January 1
Some churches celebrate the Feast of the Circumcision of Christ on January 1, based on the belief that if Jesus was born on December 25, then according to Jewish tradition, his circumcision would have taken place on the eighth day of his life (January 1). The Catholic Church, trying to distance itself from Judaism [Do you blame them? - Dan], now calls this holy day of obligation the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God.

Comment:
Comrades, as I said last week, let's all have a safe New Year's Eve/Day.  If you have any more than one or two drinks in a one or two hour period, you are probably impaired, driving-wise.  Use designated drivers, or the AAA's free ride home program.  I don't want to be a wet blanket, but a DUI or an accident are really lousy ways to start off the New Year.  Remember, as National Socialists, you and you alone are responsible for your own actions.
If you're going to a party only a block or two away, let's not be lazy.  If you walk, you can't get a DUI.  Sure, you could get busted for walking down the sidewalk drunk, but that's a slap on the wrist compared to what could happen if you drive in that condition.
Have a safe and happy New Year's celebration.

UPDATE TO YESTERDAY'S POST:  I have just been informed by Comrade Gina that her cousin's murderer was indeed a Mexican.

Of Interest...

In a follow up to yesterday's story, it seems that the Aryan murder victim is - and I quote "said have have called her attacker the N word."  Typical Jews media trick:  Accusing the victim because she was Aryan and her attacker is non-Aryan.  

Last September, a cousin of one of our Party comrades was murdered in Anaheim, California.  They now have the killer in custody.  She didn't say, but I'll bet the creep is a Mestizo as 70 percent of Anaheim is Latino.  At least they got him.  Now we'll have to wait and see if he gets whats coming to him.  I'm sure he'll get something, but probably not what he really deserves.

UPDATE 12/30/15:  I have just been informed by Comrade Gina that the killer is indeed a Mexican.

Also, some of you may have heard that we had an earthquake here in So. Cal. on Tuesday. It was a moderate quake, 4.4 on the Richter scale.  The epicenter was in Devore, California, about ten miles from me so I got a pretty good jolt.  No damage, but all my kitchen cabinets flung open and there was empty tupperware all over the floor.  No problem, just a nuisance. It did however scare the heck out of my two cats.


Finally, the year is coming to an end - finally.  Obama will be gone in about 12 months, three weeks. I'm sure his successor will be no better, but it will be gratifying to see him go nonetheless.  


All too often the ANP starts of the new year with empty coffers because all too many people feel they can't afford to send in their pledges because of Christmas expenses.  Your obligation to the party is not suspended every December.  We need you to stay current, and perhaps for those of you who get money as a gift, you could share some of it with the only organisation that is looking out for your rights and your children's future.  So if you can afford to, Chairman Suhayda would appreciate a little extra with your next pledge.  Thank you.

BTW, that goes for me as well.  There will be something extra with my next pledge as well.  I like to think I not only talk the talk, but walk the walk as well.

Finally, I hope you will all conduct yourselves as responsible National Socialists this Thursday evening.  If you must drink, please don't drive.  For example, if you're planning to attend a party and it's only a few blocks away, walk, don't drive.  I realize that it's very cold in some places, but a chilly walk home is better than a side trip to jail - or the morgue.  The morgue is really cold.  Also, many cab companies are offering free rides home for those who have been drinking.  If this is not available to you, call Über .  It's a lot cheaper than a cab - which is why cab companies hate Über.  Über is German for Over.  Why they would name their service that is something I can't answer.

Police arrest woman accused of deadly assault in San Francisco

Monday, October 26, 2015

FILE - San Francisco police arrested a woman accused of being connected to a deadly assault after a fight on a Muni bus in the Mission District.

San Francisco police arrested a woman Monday accused of being connected to a deadly assault after a fight on a Muni bus in the Mission District that occurred earlier this month.

The 55-year-old woman was taken off life support Friday. She was assaulted by two suspects in San Francisco's Mission District.

She was identified by the medical examiner's office as San Francisco resident Nancy Tynan.

Shortly after 7 p.m. on Oct. 15, police had responded to a report of an assault in the 300 block of Potrero Avenue, near 16th Street.

Witnesses told police that a male and a female suspect were arguing with a woman on a bus.

Both the suspects and the woman got off the bus and continued to argue, police said.

Witnesses told police that they heard yelling and then saw the woman lying on the ground unconscious.

Both suspects fled the area on foot and police have not yet released descriptions of them.

The woman, later identified as Tynan, was transported to San Francisco General Hospital, where she was later pronounced dead.

Police are investigating the incident as a homicide and have not yet released a motive.

Comment:

I know this story is two months old, but I just heard about it today.  Someone I know who lives in SF knew the victim.

My friend informs me that the victim was White, and her two assailants were Black.

Notice how race was not mentioned in the story?  Yet if Tynan was Black and Hill was White the media would be screaming racism and hate crime.

The biased Jews media is at it again.  They either out and out lie, or they withhold information that doesn't fit in with their politically correct agenda.  Now I know I'm preaching to the choir on this, but it's one thing to say that they withheld pertinent information, but another to be able to show actual proof.

So What's Up With The Huntington Park Illegal Immigrant Commissioner?

Back in August, the city of Huntington Park, Ca. appointed two illegal immigrants, Julian Zatarain and Francisco Medina, to city commissions, despite protests from citizens. The media reported that but have since been silent to their terms of office and how that's gone.

That is, except for one guy, blogger and Townhall columnist Arthur Schaper, who made a YouTube clip of his December encounter with one of the illegal immigrants now seated in the leadership of that city's government. IBD wrote about the problematic appointments here, noting that it's very strange for two men with no apparent political experience to be gaining spots on city commissions. It's even stranger that they could not make themselves legal through the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), given their young ages (21 and 24) as well as their supposedly long residencies in the U.S. Approval rates have been in the high-90% range for most.
Which is why the persistent blogger Schaper took it upon himself, outside any press attention, to record and film just that question to Zatarain at a city meeting. Again and again, he asked Zatarain why he didn't get legal residency and follow the law as other immigrants do.
Zatarain, a native of Sinaloa, Mexico, didn't have much of an answer for him other than the process was complicated and the laws were changing. He didn't seem a bit worried about not following the law or running a city where he didn't hold its citizenship.
Though he didn't get far, Schaper did reveal some interesting information.
1. Zatarain is slick and political, with clear ambitions beyond Huntington Park.
2. Zatarain, for what he claims is a volunteer job, is getting quite a sum of money from somewhere, based on his expensive mode of dress.
3. Zatarain has the power to shut out citizens asking uncomfortable questions, with no accountability.
4. Zatarain's engagement in political campaigns is illegal for a citizen of another country, something for which he has no explanation.
No word on how he missed DACA or what the background check on his fitness for office in Sacramento found. Perhaps that will be Schaper's next project.
It's worth watching the YouTube video, if for nothing else than to see the arrogance of political power of those whose loyalty is to political machines, not the U.S. Constitution or rule of law.

Comment:
Watch the video below and you'll see how arrogant both Zatarain and the Huntington Park city government is towards citizen activists.  This, in a nutshell, is what's wrong with government today:  They don't give a damn about what the people want.

Towards the end of the video you'll hear a councilwoman refer to Zatarain as a "constituent without borders".  The problem with that is there is NO SUCH THING. Legally, a constituent is a registered voter, or at least someone who is qualified to register.  In other words, a constituent is a citizen.  The concept of a constituent without borders is nothing less than criminal.

'Twas The Day After Christmas

David Frank
'Twas the day after Christmas and all through the house
Children sat slack-jawed, bored on the couch.
Wrappings and toys littered the floor,
An incredible mess that I did abhor.
With Mom in her robe and I in my jeans,
We waded in to get the place clean.
When suddenly the doorbell: it started to clatter,
I sprang to the Security-View to check out the matter.
The new-fallen snow, now blackened with soot,
Was trampled and icy and treacherous to foot.
But suddenly in view, did I gasp and pant:
An unhappy bill collector and eight tiny accountants.

The door flew open and in they came,
Stern-looking men with bills in my name.

On Discover, on Visa, on American Express,
On Mastercard too, I sadly confess,
Right to my limits, then beyond my net worth,
OUer the top I had charged, in a frenzy of mirth.
The black-suited men, so somber, so strict,
I wondered why me that they had first picked.
They stared at me with a look I couldn't miss,
That said "Buddy, when are you for paying for this?"
I shrugged my shoulders, but then I grew bolder,
Went to the cabinet and pulled out a folder.
"As you can see," I said with a smile,
"It's bankruptcy that I'll have to file!"
And with a swoop of my arm, my middle digit extended
I threw the bills in the fire: the matter had ended.
The scent of burnt ash came to my nose,
As up the chimney my credit-worthiness rose.
Without another word they turned and walked out,
Got into their limos, but one gave a shout:
"You may think that's the answer to all of your fears,
But it's nothing you'll charge for at least seven years!

A Child's Christmas


Every year I repost this joke because I like it so much.  I heard this one in church.  A Catholic priest actually told this as part of his sermon for Midnight Mass.  It was only four or five years ago, and I couldn't believe he had the balls to tell this publicly.

On the first day after Christmas vacation, a first grade teacher asked some of the students what they did for Christmas.

One Episcopalian girl said, "We went Caroling and then came home and went to bed and waited for Santa to bring us our toys.

A Catholic boy said, "We went to Midnight Mass, then came home and went to bed and waited for Santa to bring us our toys."


The teacher suddenly remembered that there was one Jewish girl in the class.  Not wanting her to feel left out she asked her what her family did for Christmas.

The girl replied, "We went to one place and sang one Christmas Carol."


Puzzled, the teacher asked, "Well where did you go and what did you sing?"

The child answered, "We went down to my father's toy store and sang, "Oh What A Friend We Have In Jesus!"

Origins Of Santa Claus









Saint Nicholas of Myra is the primary inspiration for the Christian figure of Sinterklaas. He was a 4th century Greek Christian bishop of Myra (now Demre) in Lycia, a province of the Byzantine Anatolia, now in Turkey. Nicholas was famous for his generous gifts to the poor, in particular presenting the three impoverished daughters of a pious Christian with dowries so that they would not have to become prostitutes. He was very religious from an early age and devoted his life entirely to Christianity. In Europe (more precisely the Netherlands, Belgium, Austria and Germany) he is still portrayed as a bearded bishop in canonical robes. In 1087, the Italian city of Bari, wanting to enter the profitable pilgrimage industry of the times, mounted an expedition to locate the tomb of the Christian Saint and procure his remains. The reliquary of St. Nicholas was desecrated by Italian sailors and the spoils, including his relics, taken to Bari where they are kept to this day. A basilica was constructed the same year to store the loot and the area became a pilgrimage site for the devout, thus justifying the economic cost of the expedition.

Irish historians say that his remains were moved on again from Italy to Jerpoint Abbey in County Kilkenny, where his grave can still be seen. Saint Nicholas was later claimed as a patron saint of many diverse groups, from archers, sailor, and children to pawnbrokers. He is also the patron saint of both Amsterdam and Moscow.

Numerous parallels have been drawn between Santa Claus and the figure of Odin, a major god amongst the Germanic peoples prior to their Christianization. Since many of these elements are unrelated to Christianity, there are theories regarding the pagan origins of various customs of the holiday stemming from areas where the Germanic peoples were Christianized and retained elements of their indigenous traditions, surviving in various forms into modern depictions of Santa Claus.

Odin was sometimes recorded, at the native Germanic holiday of Yule, as leading a great hunting party through the sky. 

Two books from Iceland, the Poetic Edda, compiled in the 13th century from earlier sources, and the Prose Edda, written in the 13th century by Snorri Sturluson, describe Odin as riding an eight-legged horse named Sleipnir that could leap great distances, giving rise to comparisons to Santa Claus's reindeer. Further, Odin was referred to by many names in Skaldic poetry, some of which describe his appearance or functions. These include Síðgrani, Síðskeggr, Langbarðr, (all meaning "long beard") and Jólnir ("Yule figure").

According to Phyllis Siefker, children would place their boots, filled with carrots, straw, or sugar, near the chimney for Odin's flying horse, Sleipnir, to eat. Odin would then reward those children for their kindness by replacing Sleipnir's food with gifts or candy. This practice, she claims, survived in Germany, Belgium, and the Netherlands after the adoption of Christianity and became associated with Saint Nicholas as a result of the process of Christianization and can be still seen in the modern practice of the hanging of stockings at the chimney in some homes.

This practice in turn came to the United States through the Dutch colony of New Amsterdam prior to the British seizure in the 17th century, and evolved into the hanging of socks or stockings at the fireplace.

One story tells of a poor man and his three daughters. With no money to get his daughters married, he was worried what would happen to them after his death. Saint Nicholas knowing the anguish of the father, stopped by the man's house after the family had gone to bed. He had three bags of gold coins with him, one for each girl. Seeing the daughters stockings hung over the fireplace for drying, he put one gold bag in each stocking and left. The girls waking up the next morning, they each found a bag of gold coins in their stocking. This led to the custom of children hanging stockings or putting out shoes, eagerly awaiting gifts from Saint Nicholas.

In Hungary, many regions of Austria and former Austro-Hungarian Italy (Friuli, city of Trieste) children are given sweets and gifts on Saint Nicholas's Day (San Niccolò in Italian), in accordance with the Catholic calendar, December 6.

Numerous other influences from the pre-Christian Germanic winter celebrations have continued into modern Christmas celebrations such as the Christmas ham, Yule Goat, Yule log, and the Christmas tree.

In The Netherlands and Belgium, Saint Nicolas, ("Sinterklaas", often called "De Goede Sint" — "The Good Saint") is aided by helpers commonly known as Zwarte Piet ("Black Peter") in Dutch or "Père Fouettard" in French. Note that "Santa Claus" is phonetically related to the Dutch "Sinterklaas", so much so that for a Dutch person the origin of the name "Santa Claus" is obvious; it's just "sinterklaas" pronounced in English.

His feast on December 6 came to be celebrated in many countries with the giving of gifts. However, in the Netherlands the Dutch celebrate his "birthday" on the evening of the day before December 6th, during a celebration called "Pakjesavond". At the Reformation in 16th-17th century Europe, many Protestants changed the gift bringer to the Christ Child or Christkindl, and the date of giving gifts changed from December the 6th to Christmas Eve.

The folklore of Saint Nicolas has many parallels with Germanic mythology, in particular with the god Odin. These include the beard, hat and spear (nowadays a staff) and the cloth bag held by the servants to capture naughty children. Both Saint Nicolas and Odin ride white horses that can fly through the air; the white eight-legged steed of Odin is named Sleipnir (although Sleipnir is more commonly depicted as gray). The letters made of candy given by the Zwarte Pieten to the children evokes the fact that Odin ‘invented’ the rune letters. The poems made during the celebration and the songs the children sing relate to Odin as the god of the arts of poetry.

There are various explanations of the origins of the helpers. The oldest explanation is that the helpers symbolize the two ravens Hugin and Munin who informed Odin on what was going on. In later stories the helper depicts the defeated devil. The devil is defeated by either Odin or his helper Nörwi, the black father of the night. Nörwi is usually depicted with the same staff of birch (Dutch: "roe") as Zwarte Piet.

Another, more modern story is that Saint Nicolas liberated an Ethiopian slave boy called 'Piter' (from Saint Peter) from a Myra market, and the boy was so grateful he decided to stay with Saint Nicolas as a helper. With the influx of immigrants to the Netherlands starting in the late 1950s, this story is felt by some to be racist. Today, Zwarte Piet have become modern servants, who have black faces because they climb through chimneys, causing their skin to become blackened by soot. They hold chimney cleaning tools (cloth bag and staff of birch).

Presents given during this feast are often accompanied by poems, some basic, some quite elaborate pieces of art that mock events in the past year relating to the recipient. The gifts themselves may be just an excuse for the wrapping, which can also be quite elaborate. The more serious gifts may be reserved for the next morning. Since the giving of presents is Sinterklaas's job, presents are traditionally not given at Christmas in the Netherlands, although the latter is gaining popularity with families with older or no kids.

The Zwarte Pieten have roughly the same role for the Dutch Saint Nicolas that the elves have to America's Santa Claus. According to tradition, the saint has a Piet for every function: there are navigation Pieten to navigate the steamboat from Spain to Holland, or acrobatic Pieten for climbing up the roofs to stuff presents through the chimney, or to climb through the chimneys themselves. Throughout the years many stories have been added, mostly made up by parents to keep children's belief in Saint Nicolas intact and to discourage misbehaviour. In most cases the Pieten are quite lousy at their job, such as the navigation Piet (Dutch "wegwijspiet") pointing in the wrong direction. This is often used to provide some simple comedy in the annual parade of Saint Nicolas coming to the Netherlands, and can also be used to laud the progress of children at school by having the Piet give the wrong answer to, for example, a simple mathematical question like 2+2, so that the child in question is (or can be) persuaded to give the right answer.

In Netherlands and Belgium the character of Santa Claus, as known in the United States (with his white beard, red and white outfit, etc.), is entirely distinct from Sinterklaas, known instead as de Kerstman in Dutch (trans. the Christmasman) or Père Noël (Father Christmas) in French. Although Sinterklaas is the predominant gift-giver in the Netherlands in December (36% of the population only give presents on Sinterklaas day), Christmas is used by another fifth of the Dutch population to give presents (21% give presents on Christmas only). Some 26% of the Dutch population give presents on both days. In Belgium, presents are given to children only, but to almost all of them, on Sinterklaas day. On Christmas Day, everybody receives presents, but often without Santa Claus' help. 

Not meaning to sound like a buzz kill, who knows who can afford gifts this year? All thanks to Uncle SAMuel Scrooge and his Judeo-Capitalist cohorts.

NBC News: Southern Border Surge of Illegals 'New Normal'

By Greg Richter   |   Saturday, 19 Dec 2015 04:46 PM

Image: NBC News: Southern Border Surge of Illegals 'New Normal'

The flood of illegal immigrants trying to sneak across America's southern border may be the "new normal," NBC News quotes a government official as saying.


Apprehensions of unaccompanied minors or legal guardians traveling with children under age 18 hit a high mark in 2014, but leveled off after actions were taken following an outcry from Republicans that President Barack Obama's policies were encouraging people to send their children from Central America through Mexican "coyotes," or smugglers.

Now, NBC reports, those numbers are on the rise again.

More than 10,000 undocumented children were stopped at the border in the past two months, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection statistics. That is more than double the number apprehended during the same period last year.

The number of family units caught trying to cross the border is even higher. A total of 12,505 detentions were reported in October-November 2015, beating 2014's number of 4,577. That was a 173 percent increase.

"We could very well be seeing the new normal," U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Gil Kerlikowske told NBC News.

The surge is seen by many border agents and officials as a reaction to a court ruling by U.S. District Judge Dolly Gee, who said federal officials must cut down detention time of those caught trying to enter the country illegally.

Unaccompanied minors now must be released from federal detention centers to a relative in the United States after no more than five days. Parents must receive a quick release also unless deemed a flight risk.

Republican Rep. Bob Goodlatte of Virginia, who chairs the House Judiciary Committee, said that ruling is only exacerbating the problem.

"The word is, come on ahead and the border is open, the Obama administration is going to take good care of you," Goodlatte told NBC News.

Comment:

The new normal. huh?  Is that a subtle way of telling us to get used to it because this is the way it is now?  I'm sure that's exactly what they mean.
.

Quite frankly I'm extremely disgusted with the Aryan American response to this invasion. Some people are awakening, but the majority are still too occupied with frivolous things.

For example, it's not even Christmas yet and people are already panting with anticipation at all the big college football games that will be going on on New Year's Day.  Many are already planning their football parties.  

Just imagine what it will be like in two or three weeks when the Stupid Bowl game will be around the corner.  Frankly, it makes me want to puke. Why in God's name would any decent Aryan want to watch a bunch of sweaty Negroes smashing in to each other on a field?  Then again, watch Negroes injure each other does sound like it could be entertaining after all. LOL

During the Holiday Season we are all entitled to some fun and enjoyment.  Just remember that the NFL is 80 percent Black.  I don't buy that Blacks are inherently better at football than Aryans.  In fact, that concept contradicts the liberals when they say all races are equal and have approximately the same capabilities.  If that is so, why is the NFL so Black?

Enjoy yourselves comrades, but never lose sight of the fact that we are in a war for survival. If you do lose sight, by the time the party is over, it may be over for good for the Aryan People.  Hail Victory!

After Terror Attacks, Americans Less Willing to Accept Syrian Refugees — WSJ/NBC Poll

By Daniel Nasaw

A view of a U.N. camp for Syrian refugees in Azraq, Jordan.

Rainer Jensen/Zuma Press

Americans’ willingness to receive refugees from the civil war in Syria has declined since September, reflecting exacerbated fears of terrorism after attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, Calif., a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll shows.

In the latest poll, 56% of Americans think the U.S. should take in fewer refugees or none at all, up from 41% in September.

President Barack Obama has been pressed to share the refugee burden by European allies whose countries have been inundated by migrants from the conflict, in the largest human migration since World War II. In September, he said the U.S. was preparing to admit at least 10,000 Syrian refugees in the next year.

Last month, a squad of terrorists inspired by Islamist militant group ISIS, which commands large swathes of Syria and Iraq, killed 130 people in Paris. Most of the attackers were European nationals, but news that one or more of the attackers or plotters could have entered Europe on Syrian passports has caused a terrified outcry in the U.S.

The husband and wife terrorists who killed 14 at an office in San Bernardino, Calif., this month were not Syrian – the man was born in Illinois of Pakistani parents and his wife was Pakistani and had come to the U.S. on a fiancée visa.

Nevertheless, polls have shown that fear of terrorism has grown sharply in recent months and has become one of the major issues driving the presidential campaign.

Americans are split by party on the Syrian refugee question, with 77% of Republicans saying the U.S. should accept fewer refugees or none at all, compared to 38% of Democrats, the new poll shows.

Governors of more than half of U.S. states –almost all of whom are Republicans – have sought to block the settlement of Syrians in their states, although it is unclear whether they have the authority to do so.

Mr. Obama has vowed to press on accepting the refugees.

“In the Syrian seeking refuge today, we should see the Jewish refugee of World War II,” he said at a naturalization ceremony for new U.S. citizens on Tuesday.

At the Republican debate on Tuesday night, candidates said they opposed settlement of refugees in the U.S.

“Border security is national security and we will not be admitting jihadists as refugees,” said Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who proposes barring all refugees from countries were ISIS controls substantial territory.

Donald Trump, the front-runner in the Republican primary race, has proposed a temporary ban on all Muslims entering the U.S., while Jeb Bush has said only refugees who can prove they are Christian should be let in.

In the undercard debate, Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabe said, “We can’t take the risk” of admitting refugees and mocked those who would welcome them.

“It’s such a doggone good idea to bring people here that we really don’t know who they are and Obama thinks that we’re being un-Christian to not do it, I’ve got a suggestion,” he said.“Let’s send the first wave of them to Chappaqua, Martha’s Vineyard and the upper east side of Manhattan and to the south lawn of the White House where we’ll set up a camp. Let’s see how that works out. And if they behave wonderfully, that’s fine.”

Comment:

Okay, take a look at the above photo.  It almost looks like a mobile home park.  Not those upscale expensive parks in Newport, Ca., but not much worse than the low rent parks here in San Bernardino.

Guess what?  I live in a low rent park in San Bernardino!  This camp is surrounded by desert.  So is San Bernardino.  It's called The Mojave.  So what are these bleeding hearts complaining about.  Hell, the refugees in this camp are almost better off than I am from Chrissake.  Is it any wonder I don't seem to have much sympathy for them?

They are safe there.  They have food, shelter, medical attention, and when the war is over - and all wars end in time - they can go home and rebuild.  Hey, if they don't rebuild, who will? Us?  Why is it always up to us?

We can literally help 12 times as many refugees over there in camps than by bringing just one here.  The few who get to come will end up in run down roach motels owned by slum lords.  I say they are better off over there.  And as a plus factor they won't have to walk down the street having us eye-balling them like they're all terrorists.

Jordan has said they will take all the refugees necessary, as long as they receive financial help to support these people.  Sounds like a plan to me.

Dan 88!
