I’M IN – ARE YOU?
Newly published findings from a team of sociologists (Dalton Conley of New York University and Emily Rauscher of the University of Kansas) found that having daughters “significantly reduces the likelihood of Democratic identification and significantly increases the strength of Republican Party identification” among parents…
Well, well. Who woulda thought? Common sense prevails…
It is believed that “immigrant” (i.e. Muslim) youths were responsible for its demise. There had been a string of small fires set around the church previously. Certain is that “immigrant” youths were laughing, shooting video and taking photos as the church burned:
Amazingly, Willehadi’s figure of Christ remained intact with a charred beam of the church falling on his shoulder as if Jesus were again shouldering a cross.
The Church’s own homepage refers to this as symbolic:
Dieser Christus muss den Balken der Zerstörung schultern. Und so trägt auch Willehadi die Not der Stunde und wird aus der Asche eine neue Kirche bauen.
Translation: This Christ must shoulder the Beam of Destruction. And so will Willehadi carry the emergency of the hour and build a new church from its ashes.
Insurance will pay for much of the rebuilding, but it won’t replace everything including the specially built Ebner organ, which was a mere 6 years old. If you’d like to help restore Willehaldi, the Church posted its bank info, which I’ve updated to include the info non-German banks will need to wire funds:
IBAN (International Bank Account Number): DE43250501800910188254
BIC (Business Identifier Code): SPKHDE2HXXX
Bank name: Sparkasse Hannover
Note: It’s advisable to consolidate funds before wiring the money. Your bank, as well as the Sparkasse Hannover, will take a fee for processing (usually approximately $30 on each side), so get enough $$ together to make it worthwhile!
Holy Freedom of Speech! (well, at least of bit of it!)
Can you imagine a US citizen posting a video like this without being imprisoned or audited?!!
And…Can you imagine conservatives learning some of the words and portions of the dance and taking this to HIS speeches!! : o
The nightmare has begun! GET READY FOR HILLARY! (shirt links to the horrible store…)
Just in time for Obama’s little visit! And oh-so-”historic” speech at the Brandenburg Gate, for which, btw, only hand-selected guests will allowed to be near.
The Süddeutsche Zeitung (“South German Newspaper”), a decidedly left-wing paper, sees the light as does much of the German media nowadays. Privacy is something Germans take very seriously: They’ve had their Hitler and they know what he would have done with the power of surveillance that Obama now has – and abuses.

This is from the “Tagesspiegel”, published in Berlin:
Und wer darf beim begehrtesten Dinner des Jahres dabei sein? Am Mittwochabend laden Bundeskanzlerin Angela Merkel und ihr Mann Professor Joachim Sauer den US-Präsidenten Barack Obama und seine Frau Michelle ins Schloss Charlottenburg ein. Auf Fragen nach der Gästeliste reagieren alle beteiligten Stellen fast erschrocken, als wolle man gerade ein Staatgeheimnis knacken. Die fürs Protokoll zuständige Sprecherin beim Auswärtigen Amt hat dazu gar keine Informationen, und auch im Presse- und Informationsamt der Bundesregierung ist offiziell nichts bekannt.
Mal spontan vorbeischauen? Unmöglich. Während der Rede sowie einige Zeit davor und danach dürfen sich Passanten nur auf etwa einen Kilometer dem Brandenburger Tor nähern. Public Viewing ist während der Rede nicht vorgesehen.
“And just who’s allowed to be present at the hottest Dinner of the Year? Chancellor Merkel and her husband Professor Joachim Sauer invited Pres. Obama and his wife, Michelle, to the Charlottenburg Castle on Wed. evening. When asked for the guest list everyone involved reacted with shock, as if we were trying to crack state secrets. The Federal Foreign Office employee responsible for protocol had no information and the Federal press- and information office knew nothing official.
Show up spontaneously? Impossible. During the speech and a good deal of time before and after the public will have to keep a KILOMETER away Public viewing of the speech is not planned.” (my bold)
My note: 1 kilometer is roughly a third of a mile!.
Undoubtedly the many TV cameras will be close and well placed though!
