It is better to fight those who want to deny us our freedom, than to allow those who govern us to take away our liberty, claiming it is to fight those who want to deny us our freedom.

Paris, Oct. 20: — The October 16 brutal beheading of a French school civics teacher by a Chechen migrant, on the heels of a cleaver-knife attack on September 25 against people working at the old Charlie Hebdo offices by a Pakistani migrant (he didn’t know Charlie was no longer there) has finally forced France to face its “Muslim Problem” head-on after 30 years of denial.

I didn’t like Biden as vice-President and I won’t like him as President. I also believe Trump must go; that he is a danger to America and to world peace, a compulsive liar with no capacity for empathy who favours nepotism over merit and pardons his criminal friends and the list goes on. The question is, do the Democrats have to cheat and play dirty to win?

Party Suppression is a form of voter suppression

Tübingen, Germany, Sept. 14:

— Just a few reflections and arm-chair “fantasizing” on a very dangerous situation in the eastern Mediterranean Sea as the Turkish President, Recip Tayyip Erdogan, plays chicken with Greece and the French– A game which could lead to hundreds of thousands of casualties.

Amateurs talk about strategy and tactics. Professionals worry about logistics.

When the US State Department fired me it turned out to be a blessing in disguise.

In early 2019, State informed me that they would no longer use my services as a trainer, speaker and teacher of Communications and Journalism in Francophone and Anglophone Africa because of criticism and slurs I had published on John Bolton and Donald Trump.

I was devastated. For 25 years, I had promoted the concepts I believed made America great and I did my best to shine a light on that beautiful citadel on the hill. The loss in extra revenue has also made my life much more difficult.

The new a bandage on our lost heritage

Munich, Germany: This visit to Munich was another reminder to me at how criminal it is to bomb civilians and cultural targets, pardon war criminals and carry out preventive strikes and targeted murders. Those who come to wonderful Munich should understand what we all lost from stupid kids with armies breaking irreparable windows. The Allies hanged thousands of Germans and Japanese for what they had done themselves and we continue to do it.

The Germans are a funny bunch. Germany is certainly Europe’s most successful nation and yet probably among the most stressed of its people. Just a few of my observations as we enter an uncertain 2020. Oh mein Gott!

Lorenz Clasen 1860 — Germania auf der Wacht am Rhein

Stuttgart– I must give credit where credit is due: the Germans listen to each other. I think this is in part because German grammar throws their verbs at the very end of every sentence which forces you to wait for the conclusion to know what they are really trying to say before you can yell back. For those who don’t understand German, it is easy to think they only discuss serious things which, in fact, is not necessarily wrong.
