Amid a tumultuous year of, among other things, migrants-gone-wild and Britain having the sanity to leave the EU, two names belonging to overpaid human waste have reared their heads.
Balkans-watchers will recall the Miocene names Alastair Campbell and Paddy Ashdown. The former was British former Prime Minister Tony Blair’s communications director during the West’s 1999 assault on Yugoslavia, and spent 2013 promoting to Albanians his memoirs boasting of the disinformation campaign he helped run on their behalf. (While he was at it, he hustled a lucrative consulting deal from that poorest of countries for his old boss.)
Paddy Ashdown, meanwhile, is the Israel-hating, Serb-hating British former Liberal MP who was the UN’s High Rep for Bosnia and who helped force a fabricated report on the Srebrenica “genocide,” not to mention perjured himself as a prosecution witness at the Milosevic trial. He’s been criticized by former colleagues for his unequivocal acceptance of Islamic propaganda, and bears responsibility for the earliest swamping of Europe with Muslims, via Kosovo and Bosnia. He’s also been known to make absurd WWII analogies, and this week he graces us with another one:
[Remainer] Paddy Ashdown ludicrously claims Brexit is ’similar’ to rise of Hitler (UK Express, Jan. 2, 2017)
The peer and former Liberal Dem leader branded Brexiteers as “dispossessed and voiceless” as he compared the rise of Hitler in Nazi Germany in the 1930s to the referendum result.
He made the outrageous claims during an interview on the BBC’s Pienaar’s Politics show.
Speaking alongside Vote Leave and key Brexit campaigner Iain Duncan Smith, Lord Ashdown said: “I’m deep into the 1930s and boy does this age remind me of the 1930s.
“All the things are there, the revolt against the establishment, the retreat from multilateralism to unilateralism.
“The beginning of protectionism, with those who shout loudest getting heard and the small voice of reason doesn’t.”
Despite 17.4m voters opting for Britain to leave the crumbling European Union, the 75-year-old suggested the country was now retreating away from democracy.
“The reason why the 1930s produced such an apocalyptic end was because the progressive centre was fractured, broken and voiceless,” he continued.
“What we heard in the Brexit debate, Trump too for that matter, was that scream of rage from the dispossessed and voiceless.”
Lord Ashdown’s remarks were quickly shot down by Mr Duncan Smith who said the Remain backer was offering a “complete misreading as to what has happened”.
“People who felt left behind have actually said ‘we’re tried of the kind of system that is being imposed on us and we want to change it’,” he said.
“I think this is the real voice of democracy.” […]
And this was Alastair Campbell just before Christmas:
Sky News viewers slam Alastair Campbell after he defends free movement and attacks Farage (UK Express, Dec. 23, 2016)
ALASTAIR CAMPBELL has taken a swipe at Nigel Farage after he said Angela Merkel was to blame for the Berlin terror attack.
Tony Blair’s former spin chief said the Brexiteer’s comments were setting a dangerous precedent across the Continent.
In the wake of the Berlin terror attack, which killed 12 and injured many more, Mr Farage said the German Chancellor had made the “worst policy decision” in the last 70 when she openly welcomed almost a million asylum seekers into Germany in 2015.
Speaking on LBC, Mr Farage warned over a lack of vetting and said: “We should not let our compassion imperil our safety and indeed our civilisation.”
“Mrs Merkel has directly caused a whole number of social and terrorist problems in Germany and it’s about time we confronted the truth.”
Mr Campbell told Sky News on Friday: “I think you’ve got to be really careful not to say it’s his fault or her fault.
“I thought Nigel Farage the other day suggesting Angela Merkel was responsible for this killing we’ve been talking about because of her tolerant – if you like – attitude to immigration and the refugee crisis [–] I think we’ve got to be very careful….”
He added: “My worry at the moment is the sort of leadership we are seeing in the world – particularly following the election of Donald Trump – is not the leadership that is going to solve this problem but probably exacerbate it.”
Following the shooting of Anis Amri, the suspected Berlin terrorist, in Milan, Mr Campbell tweeted to say it was a victory for “co-operation between EU security forces”.
However in response several users argued the more concerning aspect was how Amri was able to move between Germany, France and Italy.
“He was found by accident according to Italian police,” one said. “Nice to see you still spinning all the same.”
Don Murray said: What cooperation Alastair? The Germans were convinced he was still in Berlin? Porous borders, easy for terrorists to cross.”
A third said: “Someone wanted and dangerous was able to cross borders with no trouble at all, that’s the actual reality.”
Mr Campbell did admit during the Sky News discussion that immigration was central to the Brexit vote.
“…London has very much benefited from immigration. Other parts of the country – the north and the midlands – MPs say, ‘look, we’re getting it all the time, immigration is what made us vote for Brexit…’ You have to accept peoples’ concerns without necessarily reaching the wrong policy conclusions. That is afraid what I think we’ve done as a country with Brexit.”
In case there was any question as to the sanity of those who have been running our world, these two old dolts leave no room for further question.

This is the gay Hunter College professor who harassed and tried to intimidate Ivanka Trump and her babies at the airport two weeks ago. (Apparently breaking his own rule of staying away from pretty girls.) Look at this nebbish! Good thing he’s gay.
In related news, a bunch of artists whose paintings Ivanka has are actually doing the kindergarten thing and telling her to take their work off her walls. While Ivanka is otherwise perfect (in my view), her taste in art could use work, and I would therefore agree that she should take down these children’s “work,” which looks like splatter and finger paint. Check it out:
The group of New York artists is called Halt Action Group, and their website reads: “Dear Ivanka, we need to talk about your dad. Racism, anti-Semitism, misogyny, and homophobia are not acceptable anywhere — least of all in the White House….Talk of a Muslim registry has no place in the White House.”
Now, maybe one day someone will explain to me how a registry for Jew-killers and gay-killers amounts to anti-Semitism and homophobia, but in the meantime, look at the intellectual level of the “Dear Ivanka” cards that the group is having people fill out in front of her apartment:
Join the club. Muslims are killing everyone. (I’d say, “Not fun when the shoe’s on the other foot, huh,” but then I’d be equating trying to prevent Muslims from killing, to Muslims killing.)
I must emphasize how mystified I am not just over the “anti-Semitism” charge against Trump, but the homophobia charge. What evidence is there that he has anything against gays? But then I’m reminded that it’s not enough to not have anything against gays. Nor even to accept them. You have to actually love and celebrate them. They require your devotion. And when it comes to the gay agenda, whatever its full range may be, they require your submission.
This of course starts to sound a lot like those folks who want gays dead. The ones whom the gays defend so passionately. Submission-demanding Islam. This would make no sense at all, unless the sacred cow that’s being protected is a common political M.O. (Let’s dub the Gay/Islam phenomenon ‘Gayslam.’) Do I really need to write an obvious article that draws out just how similar their legal, political, cultural, medial, semantic, and psychological methods have been?

Hopefully, after the final tally, I can change the subtitle to “The UNMAKING of the would-be last female president.” But for now the book that’s kept me away from my blog all these months is finished and available at Amazon, and funny. Please support it, as the bookshelf has woefully few Hillary humor offerings. Like zero. And it’s been an election year. Check out the Amazon page. It’s a fun ride in itself:
Buy a copy, and please share on facebook or twitter. I’m told that if even 30 people buy a copy in a single week, then the book will come up in an Amazon search for Hillary Clinton. It would be nice to have even one success before dying, so let’s please help that happen. Even if she loses, if you don’t get this book, Hillary wins. Don’t let Hillary win.

Two weeks ago, my husband was facebooking something about Kosovo. And either the Google spell-checker, or the facebook system’s corrector, “corrected” him that he was misspelling “Kosovo.” That the proper spelling was “Kosova.”
I’d been wondering, since about 2002, how long it would be before that started happening. So I’ll mark it down in my memory as Summer 2016, unless someone has an earlier experience with it that they want to tell me about.
In separate news, I thought there was some interesting phrasing in this article about the righteous Turkish coup general from Kosovo (”righteous” if the coup really was what it seemed and not staged for purging purposes; meanwhile, I can’t seem to find out Gen. Adem Huduti’s fate). Huduti comes from a Bosniak family in Kosovo, and his relatives were quoted thus:
Another presumed relative of Huduti from his mother’s family, named in the news piece as Axhira, also said he was of Bosniak ethnicity. “He is Bosnian, not Albanian, we do not have anything [to do] with Albanians,” Axhira said.
Clearly, this Bosnian-Muslim family has ‘enjoyed’ the Albanian experience in Kosovo.
Alleged Coup Leader in Turkey ‘Born in Kosovo’ (Balkan Insight, July 18, by Ervin Qafmolla)
The most senior Turkish army commander arrested following the attempted coup in Turkey, Adem Huduti, General of the Second Army, was born in Kosovo, Turkish media said on Monday.
Following the failed coup by elements in the Turkish military, which began on Friday and ended in Saturday morning, about 6,000 individuals have been arrested, in what the Turkish government has dubbed a cleansing operation.
Kosovo media meanwhile reported that Huduti is a Bosniak in terms of his ethnic background, tracing his background to Recan, a village near the city of Prizren in Kosovo.
Klan Kosova, a Kosovo TV station, said that relatives of Huduti who belong to the Bosniak minority in Kosovo confirmed that he was not ethnically Albanian.
A person who claimed to be a relative from Recan, identified by the TV as “Ferati”, said the General was only five years old when he left Kosovo.
“He was born here on May 1952, and his family moved to Turkey in 1957,” Ferati said in Bosnian.
Another presumed relative of Huduti from his mother’s family, named in the news piece as Axhira, also said he was of Bosniak ethnicity. “He is Bosnian, not Albanian, we do not have anything [to do] with Albanians,” Axhira said.
While BIRN could not verify independently these claims, Huduti is a common surname among the Bosniak minority in the region of Prizen.
Again separately, the below was hilarious, and something I would have titled “Scared of Their own Shadow.” Because as we know, independent Kosovo was created in the shadow of jihad, a specter that loomed large as the unintended logical conclusion of “the Albanian struggle” that has turned Kosovo into a top contributor of ISIS recruits. Apropos to the observation that opened this blog, it seems that Israel National News was also “corrected” in its spelling of “Kosovo.” Something that appears to have been de-corrected in the article but not in the summary sentence at top.
40 wounded in Kosovo ISIS panic (Israel National News, Aug. 2, by Rachel Kaplan)
A crowd at a beer festival in Kosova panicked when someone in the crowd yelled “ISIS.” 40 people were wounded in the stampede
40 people were injured, two seriously, in a stampede at Kosovo’s Beer Fest, after someone yelled “ISIS” as a joke.
A beer festival in Prestina [sic], Kosovo’s capital, turned ugly when someone in the crowd yelled “ISIS.” As people ran for their lives, locals report that a gunshot was heard.
Similar reports indicate that a 15 year old boy was shot. The gun may have been fired in a panic. Around 20 percent of Kosovo’s citizenry owns firearms. [She means “carries” firearms, given that nearly 100% own them.]
People reportedly hid in alleys and smashed their way into buildings to find a place to hide.
Albaniball posted on social media site Reddit: “I was there. Right in the middle of the amphitheatre, dancing and suddenly people pressed against me. I didn’t hear shots so I was afraid some Islamist bastard was gonna blow up, was just waiting for the boom. On the other hand I tried to stand strong in order not to trip and get stamped. Fortunately…I left, but many people were wounded in the stampede, mostly girls.”
[In other words, Albanian males ran for their lives, over the females.]
Pontiffsully also reported on Reddit:
“I was there, in the left side of the crowd enjoying the music, then me and my 2 friends went to get more beer (the bars were towards the camera), after 2 minutes people started screaming and I turned around, everybody was running for their life (away from the middle).
“I was stuck between the bar and some people, I didn’t even hear the gunshots because the music was so loud. I heard some people scream “ISIS, ISIS!”, a lot of girls were crying. I was just expecting an explosion at that point. I thought about crossing the bar and hiding behind it, but then the music stopped and the guy singing (Lyrical Son) said something like ‘Everything is okay, nothing happened, please calm down’, but people were still running out, and I didn’t see anybody leading the crowd outside or anything, everyone was just running for their life.
“I looked for my friends but didn’t see them anywhere, I tried to call them but my phone didn’t work. Saw some people on the ground, one of them said “It’s ISIS, we are f******”, then I heard one young guy screaming “Allahu Akbar” (in a joking way), so I was confused as **** at the whole situation.
“I finally got out of the crowd and found my friends, the police was there en masse and the crowd was almost fully dispersed. One waiter from a nearby cafe shop was screaming his lungs out because he was angry people ran out without paying. Chairs, broken glasses were on the ground everywhere, some people fell on them.
“My guess: Either a guy trying to be macho and getting in a fight with someone, or some drunk…shooting in the air, because we still have a culture of shooting in the air to celebrate here. But still, because of recent events in Europe, people are getting more and more scared of public gatherings like this, because they assume that ISIS is going to attack us.”

In Election Year 2008, I recall thinking that here we are in the middle of jihad, and yet we’re having this rather quaint national fight about race. I felt in a time warp. Eight years later, jihad has ratcheted up from al Qaeda to ISIS, and from one major attack a year to one or two a month. And unbelievably, our race war throwback has escalated to the physical and is playing out in the streets regularly, this time in Milwaukee. After almost 50 years, Charles Manson is suddenly relevant again.
So much for the “post-racial president.”
Just wait ’til next year, and the “post-gender president.” Will women get to riot, shoot cops and pull people out of their cars? Boy am I gonna whoop it up then. I’ll be like the 50-foot woman rampaging through the suburban streets. Happy days. Go Progress!

Pamela Geller already has it. There are no details other than six are in custody for the crowd-mowing jihadi attack in Nice last week. The estranged wife of the Albanian man involved has been released and is not a suspect.
Pamela correctly interprets the media’s use of the word “Albanian” as planting doubt about the Muslimness of everyone involved. It was something that Jim Jatras and I mentioned on her radio show in 2007 — namely that the term “ethnic Albanian” became useful during the 1999 conflict, to not turn Westerners off from helping the Muslim side in the conflict against the Christian-Serbs we were setting up as the villain.
But recall that we witnessed the disappearance of the word “Albanian” from articles in the early 2000s, when the news coming out about them was less flattering than their plight as innocent victims of bloodthirsty Christians (e.g., drugs, prostitution, jihad, gangs). Instead, terms like “Yugoslavs” were used, and sometimes “Kosovars,” since no one would know what that was despite our having waged our last pre-9/11 war there, the war that closed the 20th century. The foreshadowing war (of what was to become commonplace in this century: pro-jihad NATO war).
In other words, after working so hard to prop up ethnic identity in multi-national Yugoslavia and dismantle that country into ethnically pure, Western-dependent statelets, our officials and media found themselves embarrassed by their clients, and started shrouding their ethnicity.
But now, with Muslims being undeniably out-of-control enough for even the world-in-denial to notice, the media and government goal is to shield the Islamic background of as many suspects as possible. And so “Albanian” has again become preferable, and media have gotten over their shyness in using it.
I’ll close with a sophomoric tangent, something that took me 17 years since the Kosovo war to notice. We all remember whose war it was. Hillary, Bill and Wesley aside, it was “Maddie’s War.” Namely, Madeleine Albright’s. It’s silly to even notice this, but look at the first three letters of her last name: Alb.
Then again, if Shakespeare had written the story, this might have been considered a telltale clue, a foreshadowing. It’s as if she were predestined to FTW ( “F–k The World”).
Ah, “if women ran the world…” indeed.
Get ready for the last female president.

There’s more news on Bosnia’s former grand mufti, reis-ul-ulema Mustafa Ceric, currently president of the World Bosniak Congress. The Bosnian-Serb news agency RTRS (Radio Televizija Republike Srpske) reported last week that Austria’s secret services have published some documents revealing that Ceric — whom I first heard of in 2006 from an “interfaith dialogue” at a Birmingham synagogue, of all things — founded the terrorist network that our NATO allied itself with in 1990s Bosnia and then Kosovo (where some of the foreign fighters were reassigned).
PUBLISHED DOCUMENTS OF AUSTRIAN SERVICES: Mufti Ceric created terrorist network in Bosnia and Herzegovina
The main Bosnian Mufti Mustafa Ceric [was] the creator of the terrorist network in Bosnia and Herzegovina, according to the documents [of] Intelligence Service of Austria.
Banja Luka media published portions of documents of the Austrian Association for the Protection of the constitutional order in which as the creator of the terrorist network in BiH Mustafa Ceric [was] marked….
It was stated, namely, that in November 1992 [was] launched a project to stamp Serbs as a genocidal nation, which is Ceric, informed Alija Izetbegovic, who is from Saudi King Fahd received 400 million US dollars, reports RTRS who published the list of phone calls between members of the “El Mujahedin” with leading international terrorists.
Ceric, it is said, even in November 1992 an international conference on the protection of human rights in Bosnia and Herzegovina with the secretariat in Vienna. It brings together about a hundred representatives from more than thirty Islamic countries led by prominent figures of the Islamic world, after the leaders of extremist Islamist organizations.
The report furnished to the then President of the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina Alija Izetbegovic, whose facsimile was published on the portal RTRS, states that the aim of this conference was that the Muslim world is familiar with the destructions of war, especially Muslims, and investment effort to urgently help the “right thing to BiH “. And in this regard is, as mentioned, the conference passed a 13 decision.
The Conference elected the Executive Committee and the Secretariat, and the first president of that board is elected Ceric.
Expert in the fight against terrorism Dzevad Galijašević …said that Ceric using the power of these organizations became reis-ul-ulema, or that can be directly linked to the first terrorist attacks in BiH.
“Shortly after the organization of this international conference we will have [had] virtually the first terrorist attack on the Council of the Islamic community, the murder of four persons, wounding Secretary Omerdić, killing former in-law and unika Reis Hadžiavdić, of course, since that time, the war will all be attributed to Serbian stray shells,” says Galijašević.
The Executive Board of the newly established Islamist organizations after the first meeting in Zagreb, again [met] in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. With Ceric [leading], Salih Sabic [the] personal representative of Muslim leaders in Bosnia and Herzegovina[,] Alija Izetbegovic and renowned Islamic scholar Sheikh Mohammed al-Ghazali, it was agreed that the goal of this organization is spreading the truth about the genocide against Bosnian Muslims.
Saudi King Fahd supported [the] Ceric project with 400 million US dollars, with 20 million [from] Qatar and the Emirates. “It is important to point out that in October 1992 the three cities mentioned genocide against Bosnian Muslims, although by then we did not have any serious war conflicts. Even then [it could be seen] that the project stamping Serbs [had] started and that it is pushed to the highest level [of the] Islamist [elite,]” says Galijašević.
The Islamist elite, in his words, launched a strong chain of support and pressure on terrorist groups during the war [and they] began to come in[to] BiH. The first one, [he] recalls, came Sheikh Abdelaziz[,] called Barbarossa - the first commander of the mujahideen in Bosnia.
The document [shows phone calls of the] military intelligence war administration [of the] BH Army…[T]here are phone numbers and faxes to members of the “El Mujahedin” [regarding] sending items. Among them are the phone numbers of Abu Musab al - Zarqawi and Osama Bin Laden. Communication is conducted over the phone registered in the UK, Italy and the United States, said the RTRS.
This information comes on the heels of another Ceric revelation, which many may not have seen because I added it to the bottom of an earlier blog as an “update.” So I’ll reprint it here:
It seems that just this past December another witness — a protected witness in the Mladic trial — testified that the marketplace bombing, specifically in February 1994, was not only perpetrated by the Muslim side, but ordered by President Izetbegovic himself. The item below is from Balkan Insight, Dec. 16, 2015, and notice the word choice in the headline “Mladic Witness Claims,” as opposed to the more commonly used (when reporting from judicial settings) “testifies.” Notice also the integral role played by a certain West-beloved cleric named Ceric. And for the first time, we have names offered up of the actual men behind the attack: Mladic Witness Claims Bosniaks Staged Market Attack
Protected witness GRM-116, who testified in Mladic’s defence at the Hague Tribunal on Tuesday, claimed that the attack on the market that killed 66 civilians in February 1994 was approved by the then Bosnian president Alija Izetbegovic.
The witness said that as a member of the Biseri special security unit from 1992 to 1994, he worked on security at the Bosnian presidency building.
He said that during that time he could hear what Izetbegovic and others said during meetings.
According to the witness, Izetbegovic’s main goal was to ensure Western intervention to help the Bosniaks “by creating mass suffering in Sarajevo and Srebrenica”.
He said that Izetbegovic was heavily influenced by Islamic community leader Mustafa Ceric. According to the witness, Ceric convinced Izetbegovic that “losses must be suffered”.
Speaking about the attack on the Markale market, GRM-116 testified that was “Ceric’s idea, which was carried out by generals Sefer Halilovic and Mustafa Hajrulahovic, alias ‘the Italian’”.
“I was there when Alija [Izetbegovic] approved this,” he said.
At the next meeting, the witness said that Halilovic reported the first attempt was a failure because the mortar hit the roof of the market.
“Alija told them to try again. They went and soon we heard what happened with Markale,” he said.
Izetbegovic, who died in 2003, said after the attack that it was a “black and terrible day for the people of Bosnia and Herzegovina”.
As commander of the Bosnian Serb Army, Ratko Mladic is charged with terrorising the population of Sarajevo during wartime with a campaign of shelling and sniping.
According to the charges, the mortar which killed 66 citizens at the Markale market on February 5, 1994 was fired from Bosnian Serb positions. […]
Not really an update, but since we’re on Austria, I wanted to add this other Austria/Balkans item, which you don’t exactly hear every day:
“I believe that admitting Kosovo to international organizations at this point would create more problems than it would solve.”

How did I ever live without Sputnik News before? Anyway, we know the end goals of the late “moderate” Kosovo president Ibrahim Rugova were no different from those of the violent radicals we backed in the KLA, but just to humor the rest of the world and pretend there was a big difference, let’s now also feign shock at the following. He may be Rugova’s son, but he’s still Albanian:
Busted: Son of Former Kosovo President Sold Illegal Schengen Visas (Sputnik News, AFP, May 20, 2016)
An EU prosecutor in Kosovo filed charges against 20 people, including the son of Ibrahim Rugova, former president of Kosovo from 2002-2006, for allegedly selling illegal Schengen visas between 2011 and 2014 for thousands of euros.
The case was opened back in February 2014, when police detained ten men, including Ukë Rugova, the deputy of the Kosovo Parliament and son of the ex-president of Kosovo. He was arrested after a search of his house exposed a few hundred photocopies of passports, visa forms, domestic passport copies, photographs and other documents.
Rugova was sent to a preliminary detention center for several months and was then kept under house arrest.
According to the police inspectors, customers were paying from 2,700 to up to 3,500 euros for a Schengen visa, although the standard price for a visa is around 60 euros.
The visa package consisted of false documents to be submitted and even had the approval of the Italian Embassy, where the criminals had their own people, including, as reported by the newspaper, one of the former ambassadors.
In addition, Rugova and his team are suspected of having links to organized crime and the trafficking of illegal migrants.
The kid is just trying to fit in.
