Is Paris Burning?

I like to study history, because quite often what we are told happened, is quite different from what really did happen.  While it is attributed to just about every world leader of recent times, the adage “history is written by the winners” goes back millennium, in various twists.  I’ve seen it as “History is written by those who have hanged hero’s”  and I’ve seen other variants such as  "History is the version of past events that people have decided to agree upon."

While researching various incidents that occurred during WWII I was given a book called “Is Paris Burning?”  The thrust of the book was that when Hitler realized that France was going to be liberated, he instructed the Generals in charge of the French occupation to burn Paris to the ground as his troops evacuated the area. But the main man in charge of that operation had reservations about doing it. It didn’t seem like a humane thing to do, and he continued to put it off. Ultimately he refused to give the order, despite an almost hysterical Hitler demanding it.
On Friday evening here in the states we found out that indeed Paris was burning. It wasn’t Hitler and his German infantry that exploded bombs, shot innocents and lit fires. No, this time some 70+ years later;  Paris was under siege from Islamic jihad’s.  As you all know by now, some 150 people in 6 separate - but coordinated attacks, were killed.

Are any of you surprised by this?  Just two weeks ago I wrote a small piece about how the entire “refugee” situation in Germany and Sweden is nothing less than a coordinated attempt by the globalist elites to take down and destroy European heritage.   Now it is true that I try and keep a civil tone as much as I can. I also try and keep “religion” out of the pages as much as I can because it is a dead end road to try and discuss. But in this instance I think everyone needs a wake up call to reality.

Sweden is now the rape capital of Europe. They try and keep it out of the media as best they can, but it is widespread. In Germany the politicians are trying to keep the ugly truth about the so called refugee’s out of the press. But like Sweden, the citizens are at the breaking point.  

The following is a 19 minute movie that was put together to show you the side of this that they try and keep quiet.  I rarely do links to video’s but this one is a must watch, simply to see the downside of the world taking in a million so called refugee’s. Have you noticed that 70% of them seem to be young males between 18 and 35? Where’s the women and kids?

What is the proper response when radical Islamists “high up” in their religious circles tells the camera that Europe will not exist. “We will marry your daughters, your men are weak and don’t reproduce. We will take over all of Europe and it will be Muslim” ?  What’s the response? According to Hillary it is “let them come here!”  Just like a mutant evil, globalist psychopath would say.

There’s supposed to be some form of difference between “sects” of Islam. We hear the words “moderate” and “radical.”  But I’d  like to show you the words of a very famous Muslim, that being Osamma Bin Laden.  Take a peek:

“Our talks with the infidel West and our conflict with them ultimately revolve around one issue; one that demands our total support, with power and determination, with one voice, and it is: Does Islam, or does it not, force people by the power of the sword to submit to its authority corporeally if not spiritually? Yes. There are only three choices in Islam: [1] either willing submission [conversion]; or [2] payment of the jizya, through physical, though not spiritual, submission to the authority of Islam; or [3] the sword, for it is not right to let him [an infidel] live. The matter is summed up for every person alive: Either submit, or live under the suzerainty of Islam, or die.”
–Osama Bin Laden

Notice he didn’t say “militant” or “radical” Islam that demands you bow to their whims? It does not. It simply asks “Does Islam force people to submit?”  His answer is yes. You will convert, pay up, or die.   

Well here’s the rub and I know it’s coming. I continue to hear that “most” followers of Islam are nice people. They are friendly and non violent. Well here’s the issue. If they are followers of Islam, they are followers of the Quran. In the Quran there are approximately 100 examples of it teaching violence. Consider the following…

“Kill them [unbelievers] wherever you find them… And fight them until there is no more unbelief and worship is for Allah alone” (Quran 2:191-193).

“Strike off their heads and strike from them every fingertip” (Quran 8:12)

In basic terms, IF your Muslim friend is indeed non violent, he/she is doing that in SPITE of the teaching of their own “Bible” so to speak. They are choosing to be non-violent despite their Holy Book demanding it.  

That’s a whole lot different than some Christian that goes batcrap and kills someone or harms someone. Why? Because the individual did it, not the religion. The Christian religion says “do not kill” and as Jesus preached “Love thy neighbor”. Share your wine, your bread, even your cloak.  See the difference?   

The so called Radical Muslims are simply doing what their good book says they should do. The non violent have decided not to. It’s really that simple.



The globalists want the world brought down to a borderless, lower class society ruled by the elites. Sending millions of Muslim men around the world is their latest greatest big idea. Well frankly it isn’t anything new, they’ve just stepped up the process. They’ve used the Syrian situation as an excuse for the mass migration. (the war in Syria has waged for 5 years, but now amazingly we see all these so called refugee’s. Where were they 2, 3, 4 years ago?)  

So, on Friday just hours after Obama said on God morning America that “ Isis is not getting stronger, we have them contained”  they pulled off a pretty spectacular terror attack.  Ironically our first wave of  these so called Syrian Refugee’s has landed in New Orleans. The idea is for 10K of them to start being placed in 180 towns across the United States.

Have they all been vetted? Do we know if these are the so called non violent Muslims, or if they’re really just Jihadi wannabee’s awaiting their chance? Frankly we don’t know. But I do hope that what we just saw in France, gets people at least asking the right questions.  Or for that matter, ask how Sweden is doing with their “open doors to Muslim refugee’s”  There’s now 55 “no go” areas in Sweden that are ruled by Sharia law and cops can’t go there.  Swedish law doesn’t pertain. They are indeed rotting sewer holes of crime.  

Our plan is to take in 10K refugee’s, give them 90 days of aid and help them find employment. EXCUSE ME???  Do we not millions of folks in our own country that would love to have work? Indeed we do. Who’s paying for their healthcare? Oh wait, that would be US tax payers. What nation is paying for OUR healthcare?? The crickets were deafening.

 Could it be that our people have been so numbed, so dumbed down through years of Political correctness, and the socialist push to make everyone equal, that we’re about to commit the same “suicide” that Europe and Sweden have embarked on?

Take a look at this video.  I think it sums up 90% of what’s wrong with us, and why we seem hell-bent on self destruction.  Why do I get the feeling that not far in the future someone will write a book called ‘Is the US burning?”

The Market….

Free fall.  That’s what comes to mind considering the action this week.

On November 2, the S&P put in a high of 2116. Since that day, it has fallen almost 100 points in 8 trading sessions. In fact,  there was but one lone “up” day in those 8 sessions. It’s been a pretty dramatic sell down. So the question is, why…and is there more to come?
Most are blaming the fall on the “super strong” jobs report we got that supposedly assures the Fed they can hike rates in December. I’m sure there’s truth to some of that. But I also think we’ve got something of a combo-platter working here. The retail sales number was bad, retail stores have missed earnings and/or cut guidance. There’s simply no real earnings power out there. When you see a company that makes parts for the Apple Iphone laying off 10% of it’s workers because Iphone sales are missing estimates, you know there’s trouble.

The Oct – Dec. period is historically the strongest months of the market. But October was so insanely strong, and the run so out of place that it “stole” some of the power that November would have had. It “overshot” for lack of a better word. Now that froth is being worked off.

The problem from a technical standpoint is that they weren’t just rotating out of say the big caps and into the small caps. They weren’t rotating out of say technology and into energy. No, the entire mess is falling in tandem. Look at the Russell. That cracked through its through is 50 day moving average Friday. Look at the XLF (financials) it fell through its 200 day.  All the stochastics are heading lower and widening. MACD’s are below 0 and growing negative. If all you had to go on was charts, you’d swear that this market has a lot more to fall.

But we’re all big boys here and we all know that it wasn’t technicals nor fundamentals that pushed the market to nosebleed levels. It was QE 1, 2, the twist, the Fed’s balance sheet, Central banks buying stocks, Corporate buy backs shrinking the float, etc.  Nowhere in that list do you see “Organic revenue growth”.  Uhm, nope. Because there is none. So what’s to stop them from doing more?

I said and still believe that the market top was set in May and it would not be breeched unless they unveil some new form of stimulus/ponzi scheme. They tried with all their might to get it there in October, but came up shy. Now we see some profit taking, and retrenching. Where’s it going to stop?

I think Friday’s terror mess in Paris will have “some” effect on the market this week, but it won’t be a deciding factor. What we’re looking at is sector weakness, and support levels. On the S&P, the next stop lower would logically be the 50 day moving average which sits at 2007. (we closed at 2023)  BUT just remember, the 50 day is already BELOW the 200 day, which in itself is a sign of weakness. In a strong market the 50 day is well above the 200 day.

If that fails, then it’s on to 1995.  If they can’t hold the line at 1995, 1960 would come into play.  Now what about the upside? Suppose they manufacture a bounce simply because we’re short term oversold. Where could that go? I wouldn’t even consider buying anything until the S&P got over 2052.

So for us, we’ll watch the Russell ($RUT) to get back over 1154 and the S&P to get over 2052. If we get both of those, we’ll see a decent bounce back. Under those, and the trend will continue to be lower.

Be careful out there folks, there’s simply “too much” going on to be foolishly brave.
