Project Fear

MAY 27, 2016
by:  Robin Harding in Ise, Japan
G7 leaders warned on Friday that a British vote to leave the EU next month would seriously threaten the world economy, as they promised a more forceful policies to boost global growth but papered over differences about fiscal stimulus.
There are potential shocks of a non-economic origin, the leaders said in a declaration issued during their summit in Ise-Shima, central Japan. A UK exit from the EU would reverse the trend towards greater global trade and investment, and the jobs they create, and is a further serious risk to growth.
Japanese Prime minister Shinzo Abe came into the summit determined to win support for stimulus. He failed to move Britain or Germany but hasraised a G7 alarm about weak global demand.
The summit is unlikely to change economic policy except in Japan, where Mr Abe is set to use it as reason to postpone a rise in consumption tax from 8 per cent to 10 per cent scheduled for next spring.
Global growth is our urgent priority, said the communique agreed by the leaders of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the UK and the US.
Taking into account country-specific circumstances, we commit to strengthening our economic policy responses and to employing a more forceful and balanced policy mix, in order to swiftly achieve a strong, sustainable and balanced growth pattern.
The language allows Mr Abe to claim that he moved the G7 forwards on stimulus without committing any country to a particular policy. Germany and the UK remain firmly opposed to fiscal stimulus.
G7 drafters masters at the art of creating apparent agreement where none exists played a timing game on the state of the world economy, saying that since we last met downside risks to the global outlook have increased.
Since the G7 last met in spring 2015, before China's slowdown became apparent, that is accurate. However, it obscures what is widely regarded as better economic news since G20 finance ministers met in Shanghai in February.
While not mentioning China directly, the G7 also warned against dumping of steel on world markets at prices below cost. We recognise that global excess capacity in industrial sectors, especially steel, is a pressing structural challenge to be urgently addressed through elimination of market distorting measures, they said.
On security and China's construction of islands in the South China Sea, the communique was low-key, calling on nations to refrain from forcing or coercion in pushing their territorial claims, and to respect freedom of navigation and international law.
We are concerned about the situation in the East and South China Seas, and emphasise the fundamental importance of peaceful management and settlement of disputes,” says the communique.
China yesterday warned the G7 to restrict itself to economic matters and not escalate tensions over the South and East China Seas. Japan and the US have been pushing the European members of the G7, which have less at stake in the Pacific, to take a firm line.
Sessions at the summit continued on Friday morning, with press conferences by several leaders scheduled for around 2pm in Japan. By mid afternoon, Mr Abe and Barack Obama are scheduled to leave for Hiroshima, where the US president will make a historic visit to a memorial to the atomic bombing of 1945.

Comment:

In less than a month the people of the United Kingdom which includes England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland will vote on whether or not to leave the European Union.

The primary purpose of the EU was economic.  Before the EU each country had its own business laws and tax laws.  With the formation of the Union all business laws became more or less uniform making it easier and more profitable for Judeo-Capitalists to do business internationally in Europe.

It has also being used to destroy White autonomy and majority in our own lands.  If the EU does not dissolve, we are looking at extinction for our people in our own lands at the hands of foreign invaders.
It seems that the Judeo-Capitalists are really worried, which is why they have started a fear campaign predicting economic doom and disaster if they leave.  It is a real possibility that the UK will leave.  The new Austrian president has also vowed to get Austria out of the EU. If that happens Germany will probably do likewise the moment that traitor Merkel is out of office.  If that happens the EU is dead.  If it doesn't, we are.
If the UK votes to leave the EU in three weeks, our Folk have a chance to survive.  If it does not, I very much fear it will mean our race's death warrant.  Those of us who survive will become like the Jew used to be:  A people without a homeland.  Without a homeland as a common bond, that will spell the end for us.
The EU was a big step towards a "one world government".  This is just what the Judeo-Capitalists and ZOG want.  That would give them greater control over the people, and a means of eliminating the greatest threat to multi-culturalism - the White Race - without actually having to go out and kill us directly.  A "Brexit" would be a major set back for them.
I have no doubt that there may be some economic difficulties if the UK does leave. However, I believe that they will weather any economic storms that may result.  In the end, they will be stronger and better off than they were with the Union.  They will be GREAT Britain once again.

Memorial Day

Memorial Day is a federal holiday observed annually in the United States on the last Monday of May.  Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces.  Formerly known as Decoration Day, it originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the fallen Union soldiers of the Civil War. By the 20th century Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died in all wars. As a marker it typically marks the start of the summer vacation season, while Labor Day marks its end.
Many people visit cemeteries and memorials, particularly to honor those who have died in military service. Many volunteers place an American flag on each grave in national cemeteries.
By the early 20th century, Memorial Day was an occasion for more general expressions of memory, as people visited the graves of their deceased relatives in church cemeteries, whether they had served in the military or not. It also became a long weekend increasingly devoted to shopping, family gatherings, fireworks, trips to the beach, and national media events such as the Indianapolis 500 auto race, held since 1911 on the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend.
Annual Decoration Days for particular cemeteries are held on a Sunday in late spring or early summer in some rural areas of the American South, notably in the mountains. In cases involving a family graveyard where remote ancestors as well as those who were deceased more recently are buried, this may take on the character of an extended family reunion to which some people travel hundreds of miles. People gather on the designated day and put flowers on graves and renew contacts with kinfolk and others. There often is a religious service and a "dinner on the ground," the traditional term for a potluck meal in which people used to spread the dishes out on sheets or tablecloths on the grass. It is believed that this practice began before the American Civil War and thus may reflect the real origin of the "memorial day" idea. 



Early History

The practice of decorating soldiers' graves with flowers is an ancient custom. Soldiers' graves were decorated in the U.S. before and during the U.S. Civil War. There is documentation that women in Savannah, Georgia decorated soldiers' graves in 1862. In 1863, the cemetery dedication at Gettysburg, PA was a ceremony of commemoration at the graves of dead soldiers. Local historians in Boalsburg, PA, claim that ladies there decorated soldiers' graves on July 4, 1864. As a result, Boalsburg promotes itself as the birthplace of Memorial Day.
Following President Abraham Lincoln's assassination in April 1865, there were a variety of events of commemoration. The first known observance of a Memorial Day-type observance was in Charleston, South Carolina on May 1, 1865. During the war, Union soldiers who were prisoners of war had been held at the Charleston Race Course; at least 257 Union prisoners died there and were hastily buried in unmarked graves. Together with teachers and missionaries, Charleston organized a May Day ceremony in 1865, which was covered by the New York Tribune and other national papers. They had cleaned up and landscaped the burial ground, building an enclosure and an arch labeled, "Martyrs of the Race Course." Nearly ten thousand people, mostly freedmen (freed slaves), gathered on May 1 to commemorate the dead. Involved were 3,000 schoolchildren newly enrolled in freedmen's schools, mutual aid societies, Union troops, and black ministers and white northern missionaries. Most brought flowers to lay on the burial field. Today the site is used as Hampton Park. Years later, the celebration would come to be called the "First Decoration Day" in the North.
The sheer number of dead soldiers, both Union and Confederate, who perished in the civil war meant that burial and memorialization would take on new cultural significance. Particularly under the leadership of women during the war, an increasingly formal practice of decorating graves had already taken shape. In 1865, the federal government began a program of creating national military cemeteries for the Union dead.

In the North

The friendship between General John Murray, a distinguished citizen of Waterloo, New York, and General John A. Logan, who helped bring attention to the event nationwide, was likely a factor in the holiday's growth. On May 5, 1868, in his capacity as commander-in-chief of the Grand Army of the Republic - the organization for Union Civil War veterans - Logan issued a proclamation that "Decoration Day" should be observed nationwide. It was observed for the first time on May 30 of the same year; the date was chosen because it was not the anniversary of a battle.
Events were held in 183 cemeteries in 27 states in 1868, and 336 in 1869. The northern states quickly adopted the holiday; Michigan made "Decoration Day" an official state holiday in 1871 and by 1890, every northern state followed suit. The ceremonies were sponsored by the Women's Relief Corps, which had 100,000 members. By 1870, the remains of nearly 300,000 Union dead had been reinterred in 73 national cemeteries, located near the battlefields and therefore mostly in the South. The most famous are Gettysburg National Cemetery in Pennsylvania and Arlington National Cemetery, near Washington.
The Memorial Day speech became an occasion for veterans, politicians and ministers to commemorate the War - and at first to rehash the atrocities of the enemy. They mixed religion and celebratory nationalism and provided a means for the people to make sense of their history in terms of sacrifice for a better nation. People of all religious beliefs joined together, and the point was often made that the German and Irish soldiers had become true Americans in the "baptism of blood" on the battlefield. By the end of the 1870s much of the rancor was gone, and the speeches praised the brave soldiers both Blue and Gray. By the 1950s, the theme was American exceptionalism and duty to uphold freedom in the world.
Ironton, Ohio, lays claim to the nation's oldest continuously running Memorial Day parade. Its first parade was held May 5, 1868, and the town has held it every year since. However, the Memorial Day parade in DoylestownPennsylvania, predates Ironton's by one year. 

In the South

Evidence exists showing that John Logan "adopted" for the North a pre-existing annual Memorial Day custom that was already in place in the South. This separate tradition of Memorial Day observance which emerged earlier in the South was linked to the Lost Cause and served as the prototype for the national day of memory. Historians acknowledge that the Ladies Memorial Association played a key role in that development. Starting in 1866, the Southern states established Confederate Memorial Day, with dates ranging from April 25 to mid-June. By 1916, the June 3 birthday of Confederate President Jefferson Davis was observed as a state holiday in 10 southern states.  Across the South, associations were founded after the War, many by women, to establish and care for permanent cemeteries for Confederate soldiers, organize commemorative ceremonies and sponsor impressive monuments as a permanent way of remembering the Confederate cause and tradition. The most important was the United Daughters of the Confederacy, which grew from 17,000 members in 1900 to nearly 100,000 women by World War I. They were "strikingly successful at raising money to build Confederate monuments, lobbying legislatures and Congress for the reburial of Confederate dead, and working to shape the content of history textbooks."
On April 25, 1866 women in Columbus, Mississippi laid flowers at the graves of both the Union and Confederate casualties buried in its cemetery. The early Confederate Memorial Day celebrations were simple, somber occasions for veterans and their families to honor the day and attend to local cemeteries. Around 1890, there was a shift from this consolatory emphasis on honoring specific soldiers to public commemoration of the Confederate cause. Changes in the ceremony's hymns and speeches reflect an evolution of the ritual into a symbol of cultural renewal and conservatism in the South. By 1913, Blight argues, the theme of American nationalism shared equal time with the Lost Cause.

At Gettysburg

The ceremonies and Memorial Day address at Gettysburg National Park became nationally well known, starting in 1868. In July 1913, veterans of the United States and Confederate armies gathered in Gettysburg to commemorate the fifty-year anniversary of the Civil War's bloodiest and most famous battle.
The four-day "Blue-Gray Reunion" featured parades, re-enactments, and speeches from a host of dignitaries, including President Woodrow Wilson, the first Southerner elected to the White Housesince the War. James Heflin of Alabama was given the honor of the main address. Heflin was a noted orator; two of his best-known speeches were an endorsement of the Lincoln Memorial and his call to make Mother's Day a holiday. His choice as Memorial Day speaker was criticized, as he was opposed for his racism. His speech was moderate in tone and stressed national unity and goodwill, which gained praise from newspapers.

Flags at half-staff until noon

On Memorial Day the flag is raised briskly to the top of the staff and then solemnly lowered to the half-staff position, where it remains only until noon. It is then raised to full-staff for the remainder of the day.
The half-staff position remembers the more than one million men and women who gave their lives in service of their country. At noon their memory is raised by the living, who resolve not to let their sacrifice be in vain, but to rise up in their stead and continue the fight for liberty and justice for all.

Name and date

The preferred name for the holiday gradually changed from "Decoration Day" to "Memorial Day", which was first used in 1882. It did not become more common until after World War II, and was not declared the official name by Federal law until 1967. On June 28, 1968, the Congress passed the Uniform Holidays Bill, which moved four holidays, including Memorial Day, from their traditional dates to a specified Monday in order to create a convenient three-day weekend. The change moved Memorial Day from its traditional May 30 date to the last Monday in May. The law took effect at the federal level in 1971. The Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) and Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War (SUVCW) advocate returning to the original date, although the significance of the date is tenuous. The VFW stated in a 2002 Memorial Day Address:
Changing the date merely to create three-day weekends has undermined the very meaning of the day. No doubt, this has contributed a lot to the general public's nonchalant observance of Memorial Day.
Since 1987, Hawaii's Senator Daniel Inouye, a World War II veteran, has introduced a measure to return Memorial Day to its traditional date.
After some initial confusion and unwillingness to comply, all 50 states adopted Congress's change of date within a few years. Memorial Day endures as a holiday which most businesses observe because it marks the unofficial beginning of summer.

Traditional observance

Many people observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries and memorials. A national moment of remembrance takes place at 3 pm local time. Another tradition is to fly the flag of the United States at half-staff from dawn until noon local time. Volunteers often place American flags on each grave site at national cemeteries.
For many Americans, the central event is attending one of the thousands of parades held on Memorial Day in large and small cities all over the country. Most of these feature marching bands and an overall military theme with the National Guard and other servicemen participating along with veterans and military vehicles from various wars.
One of the longest-standing traditions is the running of the Indianapolis 500, an auto race which has been held in conjunction with Memorial Day since 1911. It runs on the Sunday preceding the Memorial Day holiday. The Coca-Cola 600 stock car race has been held later the same day since 1961. The Memorial Tournament golf event has been held on or close to the Memorial Day weekend since 1976.
Because Memorial Day is generally associated with the start of the summer season, it is common tradition to inaugurate the outdoor cooking season on Memorial Day with a barbecue.
The National Memorial Day Concert takes place on the west lawn of the United States Capitol. The concert is broadcast on PBS and NPR. Music is performed, and respect is paid to the men and women who gave their lives for their country.

Start of "summer"

Most school districts that had their school year begin in late August will end school on the Friday before this day, while schools that started the school year the day after Labor Day in early September will remain in session until early June.
Across most of the central and southern continental United States, summer-like weather generally does begin reasonably close to Memorial Day time (somewhere between mid-May and early June being the norm). But in the northernmost and westernmost parts of the country, the holiday makes a far less reliable seasonal marker. In these areas, cooler and unsettled spring weather often continues into June. (In the Pacific Northwest, there is a somewhat popular expression that "real" summer begins on the 5th of July.)

Interpretations

Scholars, following the lead of sociologist Robert Bellah, often make the argument that the United States has a secular "civil religion" - one with no association with any religious denomination or viewpoint - that has incorporated Memorial Day as a sacred event. The obligation of both collective and individual to carry out God's will on earth is a theme that lies deep in the American tradition. With the Civil War, a new theme of death, sacrifice and rebirth enters the civil religion. Memorial Day gave ritual expression to these themes, integrating the local community into a sense of nationalism. The American civil religion, in contrast to that of France, was never anticlerical or militantly secular; in contrast to Britain, it was not tied to a specific denomination, such as the Church of England. The Americans borrowed from different religious traditions so that the average American saw no conflict between the two, and deep levels of personal motivation were aligned with attaining national goals.

In literature and music

Charles Ives's symphonic poem Decoration Day depicted the holiday as he experienced it in his childhood, with his father's band leading the way to the town cemetery, the playing of "Taps" on a trumpet, and a livelier march tune on the way back to the town. It is frequently played with three other Ives works based on holidays as the second movement of A New England Holidays Symphony.

Comment:
What distresses me most about Memorial Day is that most Americans view it as just a day to go to the beach or have a BBQ and drink beer.  They have little knowledge about or interest in the intended purpose of the day.  Their priorities are sadly misplaced.
Perhaps you may think that this day is a sham because it's to honour those who died in Judeo-Capitalist wars of expansion and profit.  Well, that is indeed the case.  However, the people who gave their lives believed they were doing what was right, and deserve some memorial for their sacrifice.

Bill Clinton talking like Trump on immigration



Comment:

Once again I want to reiterate that neither I nor the ANP are endorsing Donald Trump.  I'm pointing out the hypocrisy of the liberals.  Twenty years ago they were all for stronger borders and deporting illegals.  

However, now that the Republicans have taken up this cause, they are fighting against them.  Once again the liberals are creating a fight where none existed before.  The Democraps are trying to present themselves as the party of tolerance and humanitarianism, and anyone who is against them is against tolerance and humanitarianism.  And of course anyone who is against those things must be evil people.

The problem is that it seems to be working.  The best solution to this deceitful tactic is to try and make sure the truth gets out.  This video is just one truth.

America's Future?

Greece on brink of chaos as refugees riot over forced return to Turkey
Rival ethnic groups clash in Piraeus and 800 break out of detention centre on Chios as EU deal brings desperation

The Greek government is bracing itself for violence ahead of the European Union implementing a landmark deal that, from Monday, will see Syrian refugees and migrants being deported back to Turkey en masse, despite a ruling from their High Court that returning them to Syria would endanger them.
Rioting and rebellion by thousands of entrapped refugees across Greece has triggered mounting fears in Athens over the practicality of enforcing an agreement already marred by growing concerns over its legality. Islands have become flashpoints, with as many as 800 people breaking out of a detention centre on Chios on Friday.
Some 750 migrants are set to be sent back between Monday and Wednesday from the island of Lesbos to the Turkish port of Dikili.

“We are expecting violence. People in despair tend to be violent,” the leftist-led government’s migration spokesman, Giorgos Kyritsis, told the Observer. “The whole philosophy of the deal is to deter human trafficking [into Europe] from the Turkish coast, but it is going to be difficult and we are trying to use a soft approach. These are people have fled war. They are not criminals.”

Barely 24 hours ahead of the pact coming into force, it emerged that Frontex, the EU border agency, had not dispatched the appropriate personnel to oversee the operation. Eight Frontex boats will transport men, women and children, who are detained on Greek islands and have been selected for deportation, back across the Aegean following fast-track asylum hearings. But of the 2,300 officials the EU has promised to send Greece only 200 have so far arrived, Kyritsis admitted.
“We are still waiting for the legal experts and translators they said they would send,” he added. “Even Frontex personnel haven’t got here yet.” Humanitarian aid also earmarked for Greece had similarly been held up, with the result that the bankrupt country was managing the crisis – and continued refugee flows – on very limited funds from the state budget.

On Saturday overstretched resources were evident in the chaos on Chios where detainees, fearing imminent deportation, had not only run amok, breaking through razorwire enclosing a holding centre on the island, but in despair had marched on the town’s port. In the stampede three refugees were stabbed as riot police tried to control the crowds with stun guns and teargas. The camp, a former recycling factory, had been ransacked, with cabins and even fingerprint equipment smashed.

“If they make me go back to Turkey I’ll throw myself and my family into the sea,” said Mustafa, a Syrian waiting with his wife and children at the port of Chios told Agence France-Presse. “We went from hell to hell.”

“This is what happens when you have 30 policemen guarding 1,600 refugees determined to get out,” said Benjamin Julian, an Icelandic volunteer speaking from the island. “I witnessed it all and I know that all the time they were chanting ‘freedom, freedom, freedom’ and ‘no Torkia [Turkey], no Torkia’. That is what they want and are determined to get.”
In the mayhem that had ensued, panic-stricken local authorities had been forced to divert the daily ferry connecting the island with the mainland for fear it would be stormed.
Similar outbreaks of violence had also occurred in Piraeus, Athens’ port city, where eight young men had been taken to hospital after riots erupted between rival ethnic groups on Wednesday.
With tensions on the rise in Lesbos, the Aegean island that has borne the brunt of the flows, and in Idomeni on the Greek-Macedonia frontier where around 11,000 have massed since the border’s closure, NGOs warned of a timebomb in the making. Hopes of numbers decreasing following the announcement of the EU-Turkey deal have been dispelled by a renewed surge in arrivals with the onset of spring.
Official figures showed that 52,147 refugees and migrants were stranded in the country at the weekend, with 6,129 registered on Aegean islands that had been almost completely evacuated after the accord was reached on 20 March.. Last year, more than 1.1 million irregular migrants streamed into Europe with over 850,000 pouring into the continent through Greece.
Pleas from Athens to fellow EU member states to reopen the Balkan route have fallen on deaf ears.

The Greek Government Isn't Fooling Around Anymore
Comment:

Just who in the hell do these people think they are?  They come to one of our countries, and act like a bunch of thugs because they are told they have to go back.

The Greek government simply cannot afford these people.  The Greek citizens have been forced into more and more austerity programs because of the bad economy and they are not about to make cut backs in their own lives while giving refugees - many of which are economic immigrants and not true refugees - all kinds of freebies.

That brings me round to the United States.  How much more immigration can we handle financially.  I'm not about to make any cut backs in my life either in order for the government to be able to continue to afford to hand out a free ride to these "refugees" and Mestizo immigrants.

It may be true that I live like a king compared to the people of their country, but I don't live there. I live in the United States and I judge my level of prosperity or poverty based on what I see around me and on television.

Using those criteria, I'm living close to the bottom of the barrel - literally one or two steps above being homeless.  I shouldn't have to do with anything less - and neither should any other American if he doesn't want to.  I'm willing to share with my own Aryan Folk when I can, but not with outsiders.

Also, I'm only referring to able bodied men, not women and children, but rather than flee the war, these men should choose a side and fight for it.  Instead they are behaving like rats deserting a sinking ship.  I'm sure at least the married men would say they have to be there to take care of their families.  Horse manure.  They can take care of their families by fighting to protect them from the enemy.

I hate to throw around the word coward, because war is a very scary thing.  But as we say, a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do.

EXCLUSIVE POLL: 12 MILLION Turks say they’ll come to the UK once EU deal is signed

Millions of them are worried about the pressures placed on schools and hospitals by unbridled immigration and plan to vote leave in next month’s referendum on UK membership of the European Union.
