Date Night In America As France Goes On Lockdown

by William Skink

Tonight I got to have a date night with my wife. We went to see The Martian and then grabbed some sandwiches from Jimmy John’s after the show. The biggest threat of the evening was the possibly alcohol-related drift of the motorist in front of us as we drove home.

In Missoula we are far removed from the consequences of American foreign policy. We have oceans between us and the terrorists our allies are arming.

Europe, on the other hand, has borders, and France’s is closed after the well-coordinated massacre that erupted in Paris earlier this evening, as diners dined and concert goers rocked out to Eagles of Death Metal, a concert where over a hundred people have been reportedly killed.

President Hollande has issued a state of emergency. After the Charlie Hebdo attack in January of this year, there has already been increased security measures. I wonder, though, what the security situation will be like for the neighborhoods where immigrants reside. There is already reports of a fire in a refugee camp:

Fire has reportedly broken out at the ‘jungle’ refugee camp in the port of Calais in the hours following the terror attacks in Paris.

At around 11pm volunteers at the camp began sharing pictures of the blaze on social media.

And soon after an anti-migrant group known as ‘The Angry of Calais’ posted videos of the inferno on Facebook.

One video appears to show emergency services vehicles arriving at the camp, which houses around around 6,000 migrants – mainly young men from Syria and North Africa.

What has happened tonight in Paris is a direct result of America’s failing and increasingly desperate foreign policy. Russia’s intervention in Syria has totally changed the dynamics of reality on the ground, but you would have to be a conspiracy theorist to note the convenience of what tonight’s tragedy will accomplish: eclipse the gains Russia has made against “ISIS” while stoking European xenophobia against immigrants and refugees crossing borders, trying to survive.

A lot of people died tonight and it’s horrible. An estimated 250,000 people have died in Syria. Half a million could die from famine in Yemen. Those numbers are the result of Obama’s foreign policy. And those numbers will rise no matter who gets elected president next year.

Tonight, as I see Facebook and Twitter collectively react, I think wouldn’t it be great if between tragedies more people would actually pay closer attention to what’s happening in the world, day by day.

Today is Friday, the 13th of November. Tomorrow the next atrocious layer will start settling over us. I don’t have much bandwidth left to keep tabs.

Other than just being sad that things will escalate.

  3. Interesting to note the degree of thought control prevalent in our society: to be gullible and accept everything we are told by our government and state-sponsored news is to be intelligent, even a “critical thinker” as Pogie, I kid you not referred to himself as after behaving this way.

    The impact of terrorist attacks is meant to be immediate. Since the Syrian government is not insane and does not have a death wish, they did not sponsor it. Why provoke and invite attack on yourself?

    Cui bono? You guessed it. A huge clue is given in Hollande immediately identifying a Syrian as an attacker. I guess the Chechens took the night off as patsies.

    Forgive me father for I have sinned, again. Thought crime.

      “Hollande’s response to Europe’s biggest refugee crisis since World War II by increasing the bombing of the very place from which the refugees are fleeing…”

      “Brzezinski even wrote that, “Let it be said right away that supranationality should not be confused with world government. Even if it were desirable, mankind is not remotely ready for world government, and the American people certainly do not want it.” Instead, Brzezinski argues, America must be central in constructing a system of global governance, “in shaping a world that is defined less by the fiction of state sovereignty and more by the reality of expanding and politically regulated interdependence.”[11] In other words, not ‘global government’ but ‘global governance’, which is simply a rhetorical ploy, as ‘global governance’ – no matter how overlapping, sporadic and desultory it presents itself, is in fact a key step and necessary transition in the moves toward an actual global government.”

      “Thus, from the point of view of the global oligarchy, the only method of imposing order and control – on this unique and historical human condition – is through the organized chaos of economic crises, war, and the rapid expansion and institutionalization of a global scientific dictatorship. Our hope is their fear; and our greatest fear is their only hope.” – By Andrew Gavin Marshall, Global Research, June 24, 2010

          From ZeroHedge:

          Now, we admit to not being experts on the nuances, or even basics, of “suicide bombing for terrorists 101”, but is bringing your own passport to an event that will be your last, really that crucial, especially when the passport is such a critical smoking gun?

          Also, if a suicide bomber blows up while carrying the passport, does the passport survive intact every single time or just on specific occasions?

    Is this fake too?

    “SINONE, Iraq — The Islamic State claimed responsibility on Saturday for the catastrophic attacks in the French capital, calling them “the first of the storm” and mocking France as a “capital of prostitution and obscenity,” according to statements released in multiple languages on one of the terror group’s encrypted messaging accounts.

    The remarks came in a communiqué published in Arabic, English and French on the Islamic State’s account on Telegram, a messaging platform, and then distributed via its supporters on Twitter, according to a transcript provided by the SITE Intelligence Group, which tracks jihadist propaganda.

    An earlier statement was released but was deemed unlikely to be authentic because of anomalies in the language, as well as an error in a date provided, according to experts on jihadist propaganda.

        • I suppose this is pointless, but Eric, we don’t know what happened over there. We only know what is shown to us in news, and in the US, that is basically six outlets all sounding alike. So we don’t know if there were suicude bombs, just bombs set off, or I’d the whole thing, like Boston, is fake.

          This much is certain: Finding a Syrian passport intact from a suicide bomber is so unlikely that it screams of planted evidence. And planted evidence screams of a false flag attack.

          You don’t r ad much and so would not be familiar with the methodology of false flag events, but to assume as you did right here that they are a mass suicide is unsupported by any evidence. All we know at this point is what news tells us, and that is, usually, a lie. Like 9/11, it will take years to arrive at the truth of this event.

      Eric, look at the image I posted above to Swede. Don Rumsfeld’s daily briefing to Bush was full of christian fundamentalist propaganda. And Bush is probably the largest fundamentalist christian war criminal in the 21st century. Here’s another image just for you:

      The Iraq Body Count (most conservative estimate) is about 120,000 civilians (including women and children) dead in Iraq. Other estimates run upwards of a half million to a million dead in Iraq.

      And for what? Bush’s revenge against an attempted assassination on his father? Blood oil? Stupidity? Fundamentalist christian insurrection? Or “F”, all of the above?

          You just don’t get what it means when the Defense Secretary, on a daily basis, hands the president the daily briefing, which has a cover that is nothing more than fundamentalist christian brainwashing. Rumsfeld and his successors handed Bush one of these every day for 8 years, each with a different photo and scripture. They did it because they knew that he would succumb to their will out of christian guilt.

          If that isn’t whack fundy christianity, then I don’t know what is. And so it seems that what you are saying is that our christian jihad is better than muslim jihad because we might have a couple token muslims in the service? Tell that to all the innocent muslim civilians we have killed.

        • Swede, I did not see soldiers handing out candy to children in that clip, but nonetheless, I think it is military propaganda. There is, after all, a whole branch of the Pentagon that does nothing but psychological operations.

          After all, and stop and think about this, these men are part of an invasion force that is occupying a country by force and killing its inhabitants and protecting and supervising the harvest of the poppy crops to feed into the world drug pipeline. That they have a little place to worship is kind of immaterial.

  7. “Off the top of my head, a few common denominators of false flags: no “terrorists” left alive to be tried; no investigation of the crimes, and instantaneous pronouncements by heads of state as to exactly who the perpetrators are which the elite-owned media trumpet in unison, with promises of increased security, surveillance and militarised police powers which are necessary in the interest of our freedom. With each one we become less like sheep and more like lambs being lead to slaughter.” (Julia Ratsey)
