JEWISH Media BE DAMNED! -- Shocking Proof that Whites -- NOT BLACKS -- are far more likey to Be Shot by Police!

The above is a chart right out of 2011 annual firearms discharge report by the largest police department in America showing that although Whites are only about 5 percent of criminals and only about 3 percent of identified criminal shooters of firearms, they constitute 44 percent of those shot to death by the police in NY city, while blacks who are over 70 percent of violent criminals are only 22 percent of those shot to death by police. .

Alois Brunner, the world's most wanted Nazi died in Syria

Over the weekend, the death of Alois Brunner, the world's most wanted Nazi, was all but confirmed by the Simon Wiesenthal Center. Brunner, who was the top aide to "Final Solution" architect Adolf Eichmann, is thought to have died four years ago in Syria, where he lived for decades after sending nearly 130,000 Jews to Nazi death camps during World War II.

Man against time

How do I soothe this lions heart? How do I quench my rage? I'm a man out of time in a valorless world, I'm a tiger in a cage! The gray men with their lunch pails, live out life as a working drone, they toil and sweat and in the end they get, old age and the nursing home!

Eric Holder On Race: ‘We, As A Nation, Have Failed’

After alluding to lyrics of slain rapper Tupac Shakur in a perfectly pitched response to a heckler recently, it did not seem that outgoing U.S. Attorney Eric Holder could best that talk in Atlanta, which came in the explosive aftermath of a Ferguson grand jury’s decision not to indict a White officer in the death of an unarmed Black man.
But the brave courtroom brawler returned to the national stage to drop some serious knowledge about the state of race in America. This time the discussion was about race in America, the wave of protests against police violence and President Barack Obama’s legacy during an interview with MSNBC host Joy Reid, which was published this week in New York Magazine.
While noting that young minorities should not fear the police, the outgoing attorney general said both groups have a history of deep mistrust of each other.
I don’t think that they should fear the police. But I certainly think that we have to build up a better relationship between young people, people of color, and people in law enforcement. There’s distrust that exists on both sides. There’s misunderstanding that exists on both sides. And we have to come up with ways in which we bridge those gaps, so that people don’t demonize other people; so that people understand, on both sides, that there are people trying to just do the best that they can. 
We’re not at a stage yet where I can honestly say that if you’re a person of color, you should not be concerned about any interaction that you have with the police — in the same way that I can’t say to a police officer, “You shouldn’t worry about what community you are being asked to operate in.”
He also addressed the case of Amadou Diallo, a 23-year-old West African immigrant shot by police in the vestibule of his own New York City apartment building in 1999. At the time, deputy attorney general Holder issued a memorandum explaining why there was not going to be a federal prosecution of the officers who were acquitted in that killing, the report says.
When asked why the relationship between minorities and police has not progressed in a decade and a half since the Diallo shooting, Holder made a statement that might be surprising to some Whites, but not to Blacks.
It means that we, as a nation, have failed. It’s as simple as that. We have failed. We have understood that these issues have existed long before even that 2001 memorandum by that then-young deputy attorney general. These are issues that we’ve been dealing with for generations.
And it’s why we have to seize this opportunity that we now have. We have a moment in time that we can, perhaps, come up with some meaningful change. It’s what I’m committed to doing, even in the limited time I have left as attorney general. And I’ll certainly continue to do it after I leave office.
It’s what this administration is committed to. But I also feel that the nation is really ready for this kind of change. And I would hope that, 10 years from now, 12 years from now, we will not look back on this as a lost opportunity.
Holder went on to say that the Obama administration is committed to helping to foment that change. He essentially said it’s about time. He is right. Blacks have been ready for a change ever since our ancestors arrived in America bound and chained.

"Apple removes white power bands from iTunes"



The iTunes music store is a great way for small independent artists to give people access to their music, but it's no longer a good place for white power bands. Following a report from the Southern Poverty Law Center on the large number of albums from white power bands available for purchase on iTunes, Apple has made the choice to pull those albums from the store.

These included titles from hate bands like Skrewdriver, Max Resist, the Bully Boys and Brutal Attack. In all 30 bands have had their music removed from the U.S. store out of the 54 that the SPLC identified in its original report. In a statement, the SPLC praised iTunes for removing the albums, while criticizing Amazon and other retailers for still offering them.
"Apple is doing the right thing by preventing iTunes from being used as a recruitment tool for white supremacists," said Heidi Beirich, director of the SPLC's Intelligence Project. "Amazon and other online retailers that continue to sell this music need to realize that they are providing a powerful platform for extremists to reach young people with messages that advocate hate and violence against African Americans, Jews and others."

Interestingly, these albums are still available in the U.K. store. When you have the iTunes web link for one of the albums, say Brutal Attack's "Anthems with Attitude", the store gives you this message.

Still the albums aren't easily searchable in the U.S. store via the main iTunes store. While it''s easy enough for people actively looking for these records on iTunes to find them via services like Google, it means no one will accidentally stumble upon a white power record while searching around the iTunes store.

You can read the original report, titled "Music & Money & Hate" here. And in case you're wondering, there was no way we were going to link directly to one of the albums in question. You're welcome

Former Auschwitz SS guard aged 93 is fit to stand trial for his crimes, court rules, becoming the only one of 'dirty dozen' charged over Holocash in recent years who will answer for his crimes

Authorities have confirmed that a former S.S. guard charged in September with participating in the mass murder of 300,000 people at the Auschwitz concentration camp during WW2 is fit to stand trial for his crimes.

Oskar Groening, 93, will go into the dock in the spring of next year, the only one of a 'dirty dozen' former camp personnel identified and charged over participation in the Holocaust in the past two years who will actually answer for his crimes.
The others were told that their cases were being dropped because of age, infirmity or lack of clear evidence.
The court in the northern city of Lueneburg did not identify the accused who will be tried on charges of being an accessory to the murder of 300,000 people. 
But it is known to be Groening who was employed at the Nazi concentration camp in occupied Poland where an estimated 1.2 million people were liquidated between September 1942 and October 1944.
Prosecutors from Hanover are charged with preparing the indictment against Groening, who was in charge of counting, collating and shipping back to the Reich the money and possessions of those murdered in the gas chambers of Hitler's premier extermination camp. 
The charges relate to a two-month period between May and July 1944, when an estimated 137 trains arrived at the camp carrying 425,000 people, mostly from Hungary. At least 300,000 of them were murdered immediately.
'The accused knew that, as part of the selection process, those not chosen for work and told they were going to the showers were really going to the gas chambers where they would be put to death in an agonizing manner,' the court said in a previous statement issued in September.
Some 16 survivors or relatives of survivors have come forward, the court said, and eight have been accepted as witnesses.
Groening was in charge of counting, collating and shipping back to the Reich the money and possessions of those murdered in the gas chambers of Auschwitz 
News of the case comes a week after a court in Cologne threw out a case against a former SS soldier who prosecutors said was involved at the 1944 massacre of over 600 villagers in the French village of Oradour-sur-Glane.
Groening has openly talked about his time as a guard at Auschwitz but claims that while he witnessed atrocities, he didn't commit any himself. He has spoken in the past of witnessing terrible things at the camp.
Oskar Groening, now 93, will go into the dock in the spring of next year to face charges relating to 1944
Oskar Groening, now 93, will go into the dock in the spring of next year to face charges relating to 1944
Once on 'ramp duty' - the place where the doomed Jews were sorted after arrival into those who would live to work and those who would be immediately gassed - he heard a baby crying. 
'I saw another SS soldier grab the baby by the legs...' he said. 'He smashed the baby's head against the iron side of a truck until it was silent.'
He added: 'Every night and every day I remember it for the nightmare it was. It was in 1942 that my SS chiefs in Berlin ordered me there.
'I was an official in the prisoners' possessions administration which basically involved removing the money, jewels and other valuables from the inmates, registering it and sending it back to Berlin.
'They had diamonds and gold worth millions and it was my duty to make sure all of it got to Berlin.
'Down the years I have heard the cries of the dead in my dreams and in every waking moment. I will never be free of them.'
'It was completely understood by all that the majority were going straight to the gas chamber, although some believed they were only going to be showered before going to work. Many Jews knew they were going to die.
'On one night in January 1943 I saw for the first time how the Jews were actually gassed. It was in a half-built farmyard near to the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp. A gas chamber was built there. We were searching the wood nearby for prisoners who had escaped.

RISE OF NATIONALISM IN GERMANY SETS OFF ALARMS


Pegida demonstration in Dresden, Germany

Its members have been dubbed the “pinstriped Nazis” and they refer to their demonstrations as “evening strolls” through German cities. But on Monday night, an estimated 15,000 people joined Pegida, or Patriotic Europeans Against Islamisation of the West, in a march through Dresden carrying banners bearing slogans such as “Zero tolerance towards criminal asylum seekers”, “Protect our homeland” and “Stop the Islamisation”.
Lutz Bachmann, the head of Pegida, a nascent anti-foreigner campaign group, led the crowds, either waving or draped in German flags, in barking chants of “Wir sind das Volk”, or “We are the people”, the slogan adopted by protesters in the historic “Monday demonstrations” against the East German government in the runup to the fall of the Berlin Wall.
Associating themselves with the freedom demonstrations has given Pegida protests an air of moral respectability even though there are hundreds of rightwing extremists in their midst, as well as established groups of hooligans who are known to the police, according to Germany’s federal office for the protection of the constitution.
“The instigators are unmistakably rightwing extremists,” a federal spokesman said.
It was the ninth week in a row that Pegida had taken its protest on to the city’s streets in the eastern German state of Saxony.
Its first march, advertised on Facebook and other social media, attracted just 200 supporters. By last week the figure had risen to 10,000. By Monday night it had grown to an estimated 15,000.
“Muslims are plotting to infect our food chain with their excrement,” said a man in his 60s, who refused to give his name.
Another, a middle-aged woman in a red leather jacket, said she was shocked that “asylum seekers in Germany have expensive mobile phones, while I cannot afford such luxury and others still cannot afford to eat properly”.
While avoiding blatantly racist slogans, some told the Guardian of their angst over the “demise of the West” due to the rise of Islam or voiced their distaste of salafists and homosexuals in the same breath, or decried the recent decision by local politicians to increase the number of homes for asylum seekers. One group, knocking back bottles of the local beer, talked openly of their fears of what they call “fecal jihad”.
Mario Lupo, a 40-year-old tourist from Milan, was among the onlookers sipping glühwein at Germany’s oldest Christmas market, the Striezelmarkt.
“We came here for the romance and joviality of the Christmas markets,” he said. “We expected some light-hearted carousing appropriate to this time of year, but didn’t expect to stumble upon these rabble-rousers and police in riot gear.”
Among the groups taking part, according to the police, were two soccer hooligan organisations already known to the police called “Faust des Ostens” (Fist of the East) and Hooligans Elbflorenz (Florence of the Elbe Hooligans), as well as members of the National Democratic Party (NPD). Alongside them were old and young men and women, including families with children in pushchairs, many of whom said they had no political affiliation.
At one of two counter-demonstrations taking place elsewhere in the city centre, participants were keen to counteract the negative publicity the city of Dresden – usually better known for its splendid baroque architecture than its politics – has been receiving of late.
Its participants held banners reading “Act against the right” and “Nazis, no thanks”. The leader of the Green party, Cem Özdemir, who took part in the counter-protest, told the Guardian: “Being in a party whose members took part in the 1989 Monday demos, I take great umbrage at the abuse of the slogan used back then, ‘Wir sind das Volk’.
“We need to be permanently vigilant to ensure that Germany stays as open-minded as it had become in recent years and the government needs to ensure that it doesn’t take for granted that the far right will not make ground.”
Pegida’s growing presence has presented politicians with a dilemma over how to uncouple the strong neo-Nazi element believed to form the core of the protests from ordinary Germans with grievances against the government, who make up the bulk of the protesters.
Almost two-thirds of Germans, according to a poll for news magazine Spiegel by the TNS institute, believe that Angela Merkel’s government is not doing enough to address concerns about immigration and asylum seekers, and 34% think Germany is enduring a process of “Islamisation”.
The chancellor had earlier warned that a right to demonstrate did not extend to “rabble-rousing and defamation” against foreigners.
Merkel said that those participating in the protests should “take care not to be exploited” by radical elements trying to tap into fears of a foreigner takeover in Germany.
Led by Bachmann, a 41-year-old butcher’s son who runs a PR agency, Pegida has spawned clones across Germany. Legida is the name of the Leipzig branch, Bogida the Bonn branch, while in Darmstadt it is known as Dagida.
At a recent rally in Dresden, Bachmann’s hometown, he told his followers that while asylum seekers enjoyed luxury accommodation, many impoverished German pensioners were “unable to even afford a single slice of Stollen” (German Christmas cake).
Bachmann, who has a criminal record for burglary, for which he was sentenced to over three years in prison, and a conviction for drug possession, has claimed he is an insignificant part of Pegida.
“I’m just a small cog in a much bigger wheel,” he told the Süddeutsche Zeitung in a rare interview.
But political scientists have said the group’s presentation of itself as a harmless protest movement is what makes it so insidious.
“Something quite new is brewing here,” said Hajo Funke, a researcher into rightwing extremism at the Free University in Berlin. “We haven’t seen rudiments like these of an extreme rightwing inspired mass movement for years”.
Funke said that even the group’s name was incendiary. “It’s nothing short of a veritable call to arms by far-right populists,” he said, suggesting that the message triggered comparisons to Third Reich propaganda.
But across Germany resentment over a sharp rise in the number of refugees seeking political asylum in Germany, many from war-torn countries including Syria, Somalia, Afghanistan and Iraq, has grown in recent months.
Last Friday, a newly refurbished home for asylum seekers in Nuremberg in southern Germany was badly damaged in an suspected xenophobic arson attack. Anti-foreigner slogans and swastikas were found daubed on the walls.

Americans Leaving US in Record Numbers

Ever dream of leaving it all behind and heading out of America? You’re not the only one. A new study shows that more US citizens than ever before are living outside of the country.
According to statistics from the US State Department, around 6.4 million Americans are either working or studying overseas, which Gallup says is the largest number ever for such statistic.
The polling organization came across the number after conducting surveys in 135 outside nations and the information behind the numbers reveal that this isn’t exactly a longtime coming either — numbers have skyrocketed only in recent years. In the 24 months before polling began, the number of Americans between the ages of 25 and 34 living abroad managed to surge from barely 1 percent to over 5.1 percent. For those under the age span wishing to move overseas, the percentage has jumped in the same amount of time from 15 percent to 40.
While the United States of America was at one point (and largely still is) a magnet for foreigners in search of work, the statistics makes it clear that an opposite trend is quickly picking up steam.
“There’s a feeling among more entrepreneurial Americans that if you really want to get anything done, you have to get out of country and away from the depressing atmosphere,” Bob Adams of America Wave tells Reuters. “There’s a sense of lost direction, so more people are looking for locations that offer more hope about the future.”
Many of those leaving the US have job skills that would transfer quite well in the American market. Instead, however, they chose to bring those out of the States, attracted instead to opportunities elsewhere.
While America offers some employment opportunities unmatched outside of the United States, the country has also seen dire economic statistics since the dawn of the Obama administration, with jobless benefit claims soaring in recent months, and only last week did the Department of Labor reveal an unemployment statistic below 9 percent. On the contrary, the number of Americans that want full-time work and have given up on finding it or unable to locate it is closer to double that figure, while at the same time many of America’s largest employers have outsourced positions across the globe. Banking giant Goldman Sachs announced earlier this year that in the wake of a recession, they would finally be creating 1,000 new positions, yet making them available only to workers in Singapore. Other industries, significantly American, have been relocated as well; the ending of NASA’s space shuttle program this year left many intelligent US citizens with little choice but to continue in their field outside of the States.
“We’ve pretty much outsourced everything else,” aerospace technician Giovanni Pinzon tells RT. He was left scrambling for a job after years working in America’s space program.
America Wave’s Adams adds to Reuters that the statistics prove surprising to him, but noted that it doesn’t exactly make sense to think that it is a fluke.
“They’re looking for work because of the sluggish economy, and they’ve lost confidence that the U.S. is going anywhere,” says Adams.
