I am not sure if I am down with this National Communism stuff, but as a Leftist I would definitely ally with these folks. They are orders of magnitudes better the US Democratic Party liberals (huge supporters of US imperialism!) and Obama-type Centrist and imperialist rogues.
Terracciano;s ideological views were formed by a shift in his political ideology. A new analysis accompanied by an appeal to the geopolitical criteria, and the concepts and conclusions deriving from the study of the meaning of the new concept tellurocracy demanded a revision of the political foundations of classical European patriotism, which usually refers to “Third Position” (anti-liberalism and anti-communism), in the spirit of Evola, Heidegger and Yockey.
If we accept Land Power Theory, the Soviet Union transformed immediately from one of the two enemies in Europe (together with the liberal capitalist West, personified by the…

The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) reportedly killed and crucified eight men in a town near Aleppo, Syria.
The independent monitoring group the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the men were executed for being too moderate as members of a rival rebel group. They were crucified on Saturday and will be on display for three days in the town square in Deir Hafer.
It is not clear whether or not they were killed prior to the crucifixion. A ninth man in Al-Bab was nailed alive to a cross for eight hours for giving “false testimony.” He survived.
ISIS has used crucifixions as punishment for a number of crimes in the past. It executed one of its own members for “extorting money at checkpoints by accusing drivers of apostasy.” Apostasy is the term for leaving or renouncing one’s faith, particularly…

I recall during my time as a very active trade unionist which I’m proud to been part of trade union delegation who was invited to visit Palestine organised by the Friends Of Palestine even then it was a desperate situation. Waiting for the next wave of attacks is no way to live and, like many other onlookers, we feared where this was going to end. Almost all the casualties so far have been Palestinian civilians. They were bearing the brunt of this bloody escalation. At the time we sincerely hoped that all sides would stop firing its rockets and that the Israeli Government can be persuaded to stand down. The Israeli bombardments are indiscriminate and lethal. The tragic loss of civilian life in Gaza and Jenin at the time. Former Member of Parliament Lynne Jones, Birmingham Selly Oak, 1992–2010 and other trade unions lobbied The British Government to do all it can to bring…

I still don’t buy it. I can go on expat forums and find plenty of people who had no issues in West Africa and enjoy living there. I trust people who actually LIVE there *long-term* and have to actually deal with normal people on a regular basis than someone dealing with scammers or someone flying there short-term to collect money.
Tell you what. I will be completely honest. I read a story on the monger forums about a White guy who went to a village in Nigeria and had the time of his life with 10-15 rotating women all fucking him the whole time he was there. They were very sweet, feminine and kind. I guess they wanted marriage. He experienced no crime, problems or anything like that. Understand that rural life in parts of Nigeria has not yet been destroyed.
And the North was always…

I’ve been a raving fan of a little known product called myVidoop for years. myVidoop is a plug-in for your browser that captures, encrypts, and stores your login credentials in the cloud. It then fills in log-in information automatically.
myVidoop was founded in March of 2006 by Joel Norvell and Luke Sontag. The application was intended to make life more convenient for internet users juggling multiple usernames and passwords. At the time, a cloud-based password manager was pretty novel and just the thing for business people using multiple computers as it kept track of passwords across home and office desktops and laptops.
Thankfully, there is a way to salvage your log-in credentials and use them with the modern service, Dashlane.

A message to our alien overloads: Who are you and what have you done with Avril Lavigne? Last time we checked on our beloved h8r of sk8r bois, she was riding around town handing out middle fingers like Halloween candy with the propulsive pop-rock of “Rock N Roll” and “17.” Clearly she’s been body-snatched for “Hello Kitty,” a sugar-coated dance jam that sounds like Ke$ha covering “Harajuku Girls”-era Gwen Stefani and looks like an extraterrestrial parody of contemporary pop music.
Lavigne must be in on the joke, though — rocking a full-on Skrillex ‘do with some bass drops of her own, Mrs. Nickelback is clearly having more fun than any of us on the track, which features the best Japanese-language intro to a song since “Get Ur Freak On” (also: the worst Japanese-language intro to a song since “Get Ur Freak On”). Irasshaimase!

ABOVE: Watch the video for “Hello Kitty” by Avril Lavigne
This post has been updated.
TORONTO — Avril Lavigne‘s video for “Hello Kitty” has been officially pulled from YouTube after being savaged online.
The video remains on the Canadian singer’s website (as of Wednesday afternoon) and there is at least one copy of it posted on YouTube.
There has been no comment from Lavigne or her reps.
Criticism of the video started within hours of its debut Monday.
“I adore you avril,” someone tweeted, “but that hello kitty song…”
Rebecca Pahle asked: “How long can you make yourself watch Avril Lavigne’s Hello Kitty music video? I made it to 43 seconds.”
Crispity Crunchity tweeted: “I watched five seconds of that hello kitty video and turned it off as fast if I had been caught watching porn.”
“I’m not quite sure how to process it,” tweeted Patrick Smith.

On the heels of news that Apple would be significantly ramping up its mobile enterprise push in a partnership with IBM, BlackBerry is also looking to step up its game. Today, the company announced that it is appointing a new COO, Marty Beard.
This is a poach from the ranks of enterprise startups, but also an example of BlackBerry’s CEO bringing in people he already knows: Beard (pictured right) was most recently at LiveOps, a could-based contact center provider, where he had been the CEO and chairman. But previous to that, Beard worked at Sybase, which is also where Chen was once the CEO.
At Sybase, which is now owned by SAP, he was president of Sybase 365, a unit focused on mobile messaging and mobile commerce services.
BlackBerry says that Beard will be responsible for a number of areas: marketing, BlackBerry 10 apps development, customer care and quality. He…
