The Holger Beer Incident

People have no idea how expensive Amsterdam is. It's so expensive that I was always broke during the two years I lived there. Well, that's what I would like to tell myself, but the truth is that I was a deadbeat. 

Naturally, I was inclined to imbibe in Holger Beer, the cheapest, finest beer available at Vomar Discount Supermarket. At 30 cents a bottle, you quickly come to understand why the liquid is only worth twice as much as the bottle itself. Yea, it tastes like crap, but when your daily dispensable budget consists of however many bottles you have lying around in addition to pocket change, Holger Beer takes a rather more seductive power. 

So there I was, closing the supermarket down with exactly 12 bottles in my shopping cart. I had drunk 8 bottles earlier that day and upon entering the supermarket immediately proceeded to the recycling machine which printed out a fancy, barcoded receipt with "80 cents" powerfully emblazoned across the top... I knew that it added more than a full half liter to my haul that night. 

I happily stood in the aisle, putting my Yale degree to maximum use; I quickly calculated that with 2.80 in my pockets and with an 80-cent "statiegeld," I could purchase a shockingly good 12 bottles. 

There I was, standing in line, my tongue salivating for the 3.6 liters of beer which awaited me that night. I was salivating and smirking despite the presence of my rival there. 

When you frequent a small supermarket twice a day, you eventually become acquainted with all the cashiers. Most were respectable women in their 40s; friendly but detached. The rest were high school girls; either very friendly or very bitter about their predicament. 

That night, Shaniqwa, a bitter cashier, was training another girl. Terrible training, they overcounted the number of bottles, and, suddenly, I was facing a ridiculous surcharge of 90 cents. I looked at the subtotal, perplexed as to why I was 90 cents short, but I wasn't wearing my glasses. 

I squinted at the checkout screen and asked Shaniqwa if the price had increased that day.  She told me "yes," and I was like, "but it still has the same price back there." 

Shaniqwa simply told me: "You're not taking into account the price of the bottles." A line of people was building up behind me, the supermarket was about to close and Shaniqwa had the only open register. I was a bit drunk, kinda confused, asking Shaniqwa why I was 90 cents over, when the guy behind me grew frustrated.

I was holding up the line, so he offered to pay the 90 cent difference, but I immediately said, "I don't need help!"

At that moment, the security guard came in and said, "he's trying to help you," but I screamed, "I don't need any freaking help!" The security guard played it cool, though, he was like, "everybody needs help."

By that point Shaniqwa had taken the 2 euros from the Dutch guy behind me, and proceeded to hand me the change from the 2 euros he'd given her. I took a look at the receipt and noticed that she'd overcharged me by 3 bottles; I pointed it out to the security guard and he was like, "you're right."

I was pissed! Shaniqwa had made me look like a cheapskate in front of a line full of Dutch people, but I was also happy about the change I got back; the incident was a full euro and 10 cents profitable for me. 

I told my German friend about the incident when she was visiting, and she just took pity on me. I told my German girlfriend about it and she just said, "yea, you were fucking desperate!" 

However, now she doesn't let me buy cheap beer, so this has all resulted in people getting me nice beer. Win/win. 

DHS Actively Hiring COINTELPRO Agents to Infiltrate 2nd Amendment Groups

In October of last year, I casually received information from a friend in DHS who informed that massive plans were being drawn up against Mark Kessler, the police chief of Gilberton, Pennsylvania. At the time, I wrote: "Simply put, they're afraid that towns which have a demographic similar to Gilberton will all fall under militia rule. The prospect that DHS may be forced to confront the residents of Gilberton, Pennsylvania increases with each passing day... . The economy is putting pressure on the American people, and even the chiefs of police are on the verge of revolt."

I published that article in good faith, based on the words of someone who had given me truthful information in the past. However, it now seems that Chief Kessler is not who he fully pretended to be in his videos; he himself was involved in a federal plot to infiltrate Second Amendment groups, patriot groups, and other militia groups.

In a recent radio interview, Mark Kessler told Alan Colmes of Fox News that he was "sent out to get the worst of the worst." Kessler says he was shocked when he learned about the situation with the Sovereign groups.

"I couldn't tell anybody. I couldn't say a word about the operation, it was bigger than me. I saw an opportunity to advance my police career and I took it."

Kessler says he conducted undercover work around the country, something he always wanted to do, saving lots of lives in the process. Kessler says he was approached by a member of a militia with 300 members who told him that he was going to have to start killing cops. Kessler allegedly took that information to his Federal handlers, saving the lives of police officers.

Kessler also confessed to not believing anything he was saying in his videos, not even the part of hating "libtards" and wanting to shoot paper targets. "It was bigger than me," he said. Kessler says he was not paid, but that he was reimbursed, given travel expenses by certain governmental law enforcement agencies that he cannot disclose because some cases are "still pending, still being investigated."

Kessler says that thousands and thousands of people came to him, and that it was his job to determine whether they were members of a dangerous group, seeking to do anything violent. Kessler can finally disclose his involvement with the federal government because he is no longer working with them, but that the time will come for him to do so.

Kessler says that as a law enforcement officer his job was not to go after libtards, but to go after insurrectionists. He says he helped prevent a plot to bomb a federal building by a Georgia-based XXX Minutemen group and that he also took down some "Lone Wolves, militia-wanna-be terrorists." The individuals searched Kessler out, and the Feds used him as bait to draw these people out.

Alam Colmes said that Kessler had made some of the most shocking claims he's ever heard. Indeed, I'm also shocked, because it can't be a coincidence that I would be getting fed information about how the Federal government was going to go after one cop's "militia" in small-town Pennsylvania, while he was also feeding information to the feds.

It is now clear that the Obama administration is busy hiring individuals to go after 2nd amendment groups.

ISIS in Possession of Fighter Jets, Plotting to Sink Cruise Ship

ISIS propaganda video
Just today, the Islamic State, the terrorist army currently wreaking havoc across the Middle East, shocked the world by revealing that it is in possession of at least three operational Soviet-era MIG-21 and/or MIG-23 fighter jets. Though many people have been led to believe by the Western media that these jets do not represent a major risk to the safety of Americans because their age makes them obsolete, we forget that many American jets are just as old if not older, and that the Soviets gave the world the ubiquitous AK-47, a weapon which is on the flag of some nations.

It would indeed be relatively easy for an F-35 to shoot down any Syrian MIG, but this may not be feasible in today's political climate, lest it lead to a major increase in hostilities. Though the Turks and the Israelis have in the past couple of years shot down Syrian jets, the American-led Coalition against ISIS may not be as willing to shoot down one, two, or three Syrian jets, as no one knows at which point the Syrian regime would retaliate and escalate. If one jet is shot down, Assad is likely to play it cool, but if three jets were shot down at the same time, it could be seen as the start of an outright war.

During the Libyan uprising against Muammar Gaddafi, some members of his air force defected and took their jets to Malta. At the time, it was reported: "Two Libyan fighter jet pilots landed in Malta yesterday claiming to have escaped the country after being asked to bomb protester civilians in Benghazi." The pilots arrived on Mirage F-1 planes and requested asylum.

If ISIS manages to somehow transport its jets into a place that allows easy access to the sea [MIG-23 has a range of up to 2,800km,] and to launch them under false Syrian flags into open waters, it may be very difficult for foreign forces to shoot down what is apparently one of Assad's planes. Though most experts believe that ISIS could fly its MIGs at low altitude in order to avoid radar detection, the fear is that these jets get into the Mediterranean.

We are not sure what kind of transponders ISIS has in its possession, nor is it clear to what extent they have infiltrated the Iraqi and Syrian air forces, but if foreign forces cannot distinguish between ISIS jets and Syrian jets, we may find ourselves in a situation where Syrian pilots cannot easily or successfully defect from Assad's claws. 

Worse, we may create a situation where trigger-happy pilots may shoot down any MIG that fails to identify itself in time, leading to a full-blown war between Syria and the West. If ISIS is lucky enough to carry out an operation not just above one of its cities, but also in open waters, then there is a very real probability that a lucky shot could lead to a ship being sunk, potentially plunging the region into a deeper war by inviting a bigger international response.
