SĂ NU TE PRIND NICIODATĂ LA ȚEBEA!

Marșul Național Avram Iancu s-a îndoliat!

Klaus Iohannis, astăzi vom mărșălui spre Țebea cu Tricolorul îndoliat. Tu ai îndoliat Tricolorul, memoria Crăișorului, istoria pentru care a luptat și a murit Eroul moților și al românilor. Ai îndoliat idealurile patrioților români, ai îndoliat până și moartea lui Avram Iancu de sub Gorunul lui Horea.

Ai îndoliat fiecare palmă de pământ unde au căzut eroii și martirii noștri, ai îndoliat neamul și duhul românesc când nu ai vrut să-l recunoști pe Crăișorul Transilvaniei, drept Martir și Erou al Națiunii Române, votat de Parlamentul României.

Klaus Iohannis, l-ai îndoliat și pe Dumnezeu, Avram Iancu este Marele Mucenic al Său!

Renoir, Le Moulin de la Galette 1876 – L’arte di guardare l’Arte


http://lartediguardarelarte.altervista.org/pierre-auguste-renoir-ballo-al-moulin-de-la-galette-1876/renoir-le-moulin-de-la-galette

Con Ballo al Moulin de la Galette Renoir ci fa sedere tra la folla di avventori e danzatori del famoso locale di Montmartre, in una scena di festa osservata dal vero e successivamente ricostruita in studio: vi si riconoscono, infatti, nel gruppo in primo piano, la sorella Jeanne e alcuni amici  pittori.

La scena mostra numerosi frammenti narrativi – il corteggiamento delle due fanciulle in primo piano offerto da una gruppo di giovanotti spavaldi; il bacio appassionato di una coppia al centro della pista da ballo; la pausa della danza, come se rispondesse a un richiamo, delle due figure a sinistra, e ancora altre figure allacciate, danzanti, sedute a riposare, a chiacchierare – ma ciò che colpisce è la fusione di luce e colore, il crepitare della luce sulle cose, che si frantumano in miriadi di gocce iridate.

È il colore che costruisce la forma, non il disegno: proprio questa fu la critica al quadro, “l’insieme chiassoso di quella balera” il cui pavimento era simile a nuvole violacee che oscurarono il cielo in un giorno tempestoso”. Effetti di luce azzurrina che si mescola al riverbero dorato  delle chiome bionde, dei cappelli di paglia, delle sedie. Le pennellate sono sciolte, libere, scivolano sui contorni, sui profili, abbozzano le forme, ma conferiscono allo stesso tempo vita, movimento, perfino allegria all’intera scena.

Renoir sceglie un taglio dilatato e asimmetrico che fa percepire l’influenza della fotografia, un “taglio al vivo” in modo che la tela risulti il frammento di una composizione molto più ampia, come se la scena che stiamo osservando proseguisse oltre i bordi del quadro. In questo senso l’opera anticipa lo sviluppo di molta fotografia che non inquadra i soggetti in modo analitico e simmetrico, ma accetta invece il caos della vita urbana, riflettendolo in un quadro destrutturato.

Donald Trump: “Aceasta e ultima dată când republicanii mai au o şansă să câştige”

Nota Redacției:

Asistăm sub ochii noştri la o schimbare accelerată a structurii etnice a populației americane, o adevărată inginerie socială
57 de milioane de Hispanici sunt acum în SUA, reprezentând 17% din populația totală, o creștere de 54% a numărului lor din anul 2000
Populația “Latinos” reprezintă mai mult de jumătate din creșterea populației SUA din anul 2000 până în 2014, un puseu de creștere fără precedent, care aduce populația totală hispanică, la un record de 57 de milioane, potrivit unui nou raport sociologic.
Creșterea explozivă a populației Latinos, are loc în ciuda faptului că imigrația legală de Latinos pare să se fi încetinit – se arată în cel mai recent studiu sociologic.
Aceasta înseamnă o creștere a populației Latinos de 20 de milioane de locuitori în doar 14 ani, din 2000 până în 2014.
Practic ca să facem o comparație, în doar 14 ani “o Românie întreagă de Latinos” s-a mutat în Statele Unite ale Americii.
Abia acum, văzând aceste cifre, putem înțelege, cam care au fost şi cam care sunt, politicile imigraționiste ale progresiştilor democrați Barack Obama şi Hillary Clinton, progresişti aflați de 8 ani la guvernare şi în ce măsură a fost tolerată de către ei şi încurajată, imigrația ilegală.
În spatele lor, cel care-i pilotează din umbră, George Soros, şi-a propus ca încă 400.000 de imigranți să obțină drept de vot până la alegerile din noiembrie şi încă 10 milioanele imigranți să obțină drept de vot până în 2018.
Abia acum, putem înțelege, ce înseamnă pentru americanul de rând, mesajul lui Donald Trump:
“Vom construi un zid, oameni buni. Vom construi un zid” 
“We will build a wall, folks. We will build a wall”
Abia acum putem ìnțelege care e scopul final, şi al ingineriei sociale similare care s-a declanşat în Europa, de mai multe decenii, prin revărsarea a milioane de imigranți şi care s-a accelerat în ultima vreme, prin revărsarea unui adevărat puhoi în ultimul an.
Într-un interviu acordat în exclusivitate pentru emisiunea “The Brody File” de la CBN, Donald Trump a spus că dacă nu va câștiga în noiembrie, republicanii nu vor mai câștiga niciodată alte alegeri în Statele Unite, deoarece Hillary Clinton va face cu siguranță ca milioane de imigranții ilegali să obțină cetățenia americană.
“Acestea vor fi ultimele alegeri pe care republicanii mai au o șansă de a le câștiga.” – a spus Donald Trump.
“Veți avea oameni care vor curge peste graniță, veți avea imigranți ilegali care vin și ei vor fi legalizați și ei vor fi în măsură să voteze și o dată ce toate astea se vor întâmplă puteți uita de alegeri.”
Intr-adevar, Clinton a promis să impună o reformă cuprinzătoare a imigrației în primele ei 100 de zile, în calitate de președinte.
Acest lucru ar putea însemna că milioanelor de străini ilegali li se va acorda cetățenie potențial.
În cazul în care se va întâmpla aşa, state cheie în determinarea câştigătorului precum Florida si Texas, ar putea fi foarte dificil să mai poată câştigate de republicani în timpul unor alegeri generale.
DIN CURTOAZIA CELOR DE LA CBN ȘTIRI – Emisiunea DOSARUL LUI BRODY – iată transcriptul
Donald Trump: “Cred că vor fi ultimele alegeri pe care republicanii le pot câștiga Dacă nu vom câștiga aceste alegeri, nu veți mai vedea niciodată un alt republican care să câştige și veți avea o întreagă structură diferită a bisericii, veți avea o întreagă structură diferită a Curții Supreme. ”
David Brody: “Doar așa ca să văd că am înțeles, atunci când spuneți ultimele alegeri vă referiți la ceea ce s-a referit Michele Bachmann când a vorbit despre cetățenie, şi când a spus: ‘deoarece Hillary vorbește despre potențiala acordare a cetățeniei pentru multe milioane dintre aceşti imigranți ilegali, asta înseamnă că Florida şi Texasul, vor pleca definitiv şi nu vor mai putea fi câştigate niciodată de republicani’.
Trump: “Eu cred că acestea vor fi ultimele alegeri, dacă nu câștig, cred că acestea vor fi ultimele alegeri la care republicanii mai au o șansă de a le câștiga, pentru că veți avea oameni care vor curge peste graniță, aşa cum ai zis şi tu, veți avea oameni care vor curge peste graniță, veți avea imigranți ilegali care vin și ei vor fi legalizați și ei vor fi în măsură să voteze și o dată ce toate astea se vor întâmpla, puteți uita de alegeri. Nu va mai fi niciodată nici un alt vot câştigător republican. Şi aşa este deja foarte greu să faci acum numărul necesar de voturi. Deja calea este mult mai dificilă pentru republicani decât era acum câțiva ani. Trebuie doar să te uiți la hărți.”
LATINOS – Pew Research Center: 57 de milioane de Hispanici sunt acum în SUA, reprezentând 17% din populația totală, o creștere de 54% a numărului lor din anul 2000
Populația “Latinos” reprezintă mai mult de jumătate din creșterea populației SUA din anul 2000 până în 2014, un puseu de creștere fără precedent, care aduce populația totală hispanică, la un record de 57 de milioane, potrivit unui nou raport sociologic.
Aceasta înseamnă o creștere a populației Latinos de 20 de milioane de locuitori în 14 ani, din 2000 până în 2014
Practic ca să facem o comparație, în doar 14 ani “o Românie întreagă de Latinos” s-a mutat în Statele Unite ale Americii.
Asta în timp ce “Loteria Vizelor” abia permite imigrarea câtorva mii din Europa
Abia acum, văzând aceste cifre, putem înțelege, cam care au fost şi cam care sunt politicile imigraționiste ale progresiştilor democrați Barack Obama şi Hillary Clinton, progresişti aflați de 8 ani la guvernare şi în ce măsură a fost tolerată de către ei şi încurajattă imigrația ilegală
În spatele lor, cel care-i pilotează din umbră, George Soros şi-a propus ca încă 400.000 de imigranți să obțină drept de vot până la alegerile din noiembrie şi încă 10 milioanele imigranți să obțină drept de vot până în 2018.
Abia cum, putem înțelege, ce înseamnă pentru americanul de rând, mesajul lui Donald Trump “Vom construi un zid, oameni buni. Vom construi un zid” – “We will build a wall, folks. We will build a wall”
The Pew Research Center spune că populația “Latinos” reprezintă acum aproximativ 17% din întreags populație a Statelor Unite, o schimbare uriașă care cu siguranță va influența politicile electorale şi programele guvernamentale.
Iar creșterea populației Latinos, are loc în ciuda faptului că imigrația legală de Latinos pare să se fi incetinit, mai spune Pew .
Centru Sociologic a constatat ca Hispanicii trăiesc acum în mai mult de jumătate din cele 3.000 de comitate (eng. counties) ale Americii, și sunt numeroşi în regiunile de coastă și din Sud.
În New Mexico, de exemplu, aproape jumătate din populație este Hispanică. În California, avem 39% populație hispanică. În Colorado, avem 21%.
What’s more, some 53 percent of all Hispanics live in 15 metropolitan areas, with over half of the population in the Miami and Washington, D.C., areas foreign born. Said Pew: “Immigrants made up the majority in two of the top 15: In Florida’s Miami-Fort Lauderdale-West Palm Beach, 61% of 2.6 million Hispanics were foreign born in 2014, while in Washington-Arlington-Alexandria (which includes the District of Columbia and parts of Virginia, Maryland and West Virginia), 53% of 900,000 Hispanics are foreign born.”

France 24 :   Woman charged over failed attack on Paris’s Notre Dame


Woman charged over failed attack on Paris’s Notre Dame

http://f24.my/2ci2MOe

French anti-terror judges on Saturday charged a woman over a failed attack near Paris’ Notre Dame cathedral, where a car containing gas canisters was found last weekend.

The woman, named as 29-year-old Ornella G., was remanded in custody after being charged with association with a terrorist group and attempted murder by an organised group, prosecutors said.

She had been known to security services for planning to head to Syria.

Ornella G. was arrested in southern France on Tuesday with her boyfriend, who has since been released.

According to investigators, her fingerprints were found in the Peugeot car which was discovered abandoned last Sunday a few hundred metres (yards) from Notre Dame with five gas cylinders and three bottles of diesel fuel inside.

A woman linked to Ornella G. was also part of a suspected trio of women jihadists foiled by the authorities before they could carry out a fresh attack, investigators said.

Ornella G.’s fingerprints were found in a Peugeot car abandoned last Sunday a few hundred metres (yards) from Notre Dame with five gas cylinders and three bottles of diesel fuel inside, according to the probe.

Police on Thursday also arrested her alleged accomplice southeast of Paris – Ines M., 19, the daughter of the owner of the car. Ines M. also allegedly pledged an oath to IS.

The reason why the car was not detonated are unclear.

Investigators told AFP Ornella G. and Ines M. had apparently tried to set fire to the vehicle but “fled when they saw a man they believed to be a plain-clothes policeman.”

Two other women, aged 23 and 39, were arrested with Ines M.

The trio had been plotting another attack, and were looking at train stations in Paris and south of the Paris, as well as the police, as potential targets, an unofficial source said.

IS group link

They were guided by the IS in Syria, anti-terrorism prosecutor Francois Molins said on Friday.

“A terrorist cell made up of young women totally receptive to the deadly ideology of Daesh has been dismantled,” Molins said at a news conference, using a name for IS, which is also known by the acronyms of ISIS and ISIL.

Meanwhile, Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said on Saturday that police had arrested 293 people this year for “links to terrorist networks.”

“This amounts to networks that have been dismantled and attacks that have been prevented,” Cazeneuve said on a trip to Chateauroux, central France.

The minister did not give further details about the arrests.

“We are involved in an extremely intense, round-the-clock mission to protect the French public, and we are getting results,” Cazeneuve said.

Security is one of the hot issues in early campaigning for next year’s presidential elections.

A total of 238 people in France have been killed and hundreds wounded since January 2015 in a string of attacks attributed to, or fomented by, the Islamic State jihadist group.

Cazeneuve added that 17 foreigners had been expelled since the start of the year for posing a “serious threat to public order.”

The latest was a Russian national who was expelled to Russia on Friday after the man was jailed for breaching house arrest, he said.

The man’s lawyer said he was a Chechen born in 1991 who had arrived in France as a child and had been placed under house arrest in 2012.

France 24 :   USA marks 15th anniversary of 9/11 attacks


USA marks 15th anniversary of 9/11 attacks

http://f24.my/2ciIAMa

The United States marks the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on Sunday with solemn services to commemorate the victims of the deadliest terror strikes on US soil, which changed the world forever.

Nearly 3,000 people were killed on September 11, 2001 when 19 Al-Qaeda suicide bombers hijacked four passenger jets, crashing them into the Twin Towers in New York, the Pentagon in Washington and a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

It was the first foreign attack on the US mainland in almost two centuries and sparked US-led invasions of Afghanistan (2001) and Iraq (2003, where war rages on more than a decade later.

Countries in the Middle East from Libya to Syria are engulfed in war, providing a fertile ground for Al-Qaeda affiliates to breed, and Europe has been tormented by attacks inspired by the Islamic State group.

The names of the dead will be read out in a remembrance service at Ground Zero in New York on the site of the rebuilt World Trade Center, and President Barack Obama will address a ceremony at the Pentagon.

“This weekend, we honor their memory once more. We stand with the survivors who still bear the scars of that day,” Obama said Saturday in his weekly address.

The 15th anniversary comes with the United States in the midst of a divisive presidential campaign between Hillary Clinton, who was New York senator at the time of the attacks, and Manhattan tycoon Donald Trump.

Both candidates are expected to attend the New York ceremony.

Held at the September 11 memorial, the service will pause six times — to mark the moments when each of the two planes hit, when each tower fell, as well as the attack on the Pentagon and Flight 93 that crashed in Pennsylvania.

During the first moment of silence at 8:46 am, the time when American Airlines Flight 11 hit the north tower, houses of worship in New York have been asked to toll their bells.

‘How we respond matters’

Obama will observe a moment of silence at the White House before addressing a memorial ceremony at the Pentagon.

“In the face of terrorism, how we respond matters,” he said in his weekly address.

“We cannot give in to those who would divide us. We cannot react in ways that erode the fabric of our society.”

George W. Bush, who was president at the time of the attacks, is not expected to attend either ceremony in New York or Washington.

Instead, his office said he will go to church in Dallas, Texas and then attend the Dallas Cowboys home opener against the New York Giants, where he will take part in the ceremonial coin toss with two New York police officers who were at Ground Zero on 9/11.

Sunday marks the start of the NFL season in the United States, and those attending the American football games and watching on television will watch video messages from both Obama and Bush.

The attacks killed 2,753 people in New York, 184 at the Pentagon and 40 on Flight 93 — which was headed toward the US capital until passengers and crew staged a rebellion and the hijackers crashed it.

Pope Francis: prayer at Ground Zero

Pope Francis visits the Sept. 11 Memorial Museum at ground zero in New York, Sept. 25, 2015 – AP

10/09/2016 16:00SHARE:
(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis visited the Ground Zero memorial at the World Trade Center in New York on September 25th, 2015 – nearly a year ago to the day from this fifteenth anniversary of the attacks. During the course of his visit to the memorial site, the Holy Father offered a prayer of remembrance for the nearly 3 thousand victims of the atrocity committed by terrorists belonging to the Al Qaeda terror network.
Below, please find the text of the prayer Pope Francis composed for the occasion of his visit


O God of love, compassion, and healing,
look on us, people of many different faiths
and religious traditions,
who gather today on this hallowed ground,
the scene of unspeakable violence and pain.
We ask you in your goodness
to give eternal light and peace
to all who died here:
the heroic first-responders:
our fire fighters, police officers,
emergency service workers, and
Port Authority personnel,
along with all the innocent men and women
who were victims of this tragedy
simply because their work or service
brought them here on September 11, 2001.
We ask you, in your compassion,
to bring healing to those
who, because of their presence here fourteen years ago,
continue to suffer from injuries and illness.
Heal, too, the pain of still-grieving families
and all who lost loved ones in this tragedy.
Give them strength to continue their lives
with courage and hope.
We are mindful as well
of those who suffered death, injury, and loss
on the same day at the Pentagon and in
Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
Our hearts are one with theirs
as our prayer embraces their pain and suffering.
God of peace, bring your peace to our violent world:
peace in the hearts of all men and women
and peace among the nations of the earth.
Turn to your way of love
those whose hearts and minds
are consumed with hatred
and who justify killing in the name of religion.
God of understanding,
overwhelmed by the magnitude of this tragedy,
we seek your light and guidance
as we confront such terrible events.
Grant that those whose lives were spared
may live so that the lives lost here
may not have been lost in vain.
Comfort and console us,
strengthen us in hope,
and give us the wisdom and courage
to work tirelessly for a world
where true peace and love reign
among nations and in the hearts of all.

France 24 : Salman Rushdie on burkinis, ISIS and his latest novel


Salman Rushdie on burkinis, ISIS and his latest novel

http://f24.my/2cjlcy2

Salman Rushdie is prescient. The tensions in the author’s latest novel are the same as many of those playing out on the front pages of newspapers today.

Rushdie says that the conflict between progressive and repressive forms of religion lies at the core of “Two Years, Eight Months and Twenty-Eight Nights”.

“At the time that I wrote this book I’d never heard of Al Bagdadi or ISIS,” Rushdie told FRANCE 24. “In a strange way I invented this clash as a fictitious clash and then had the strange experience of watching it happen in real life…I’m really sorry that this book ended up coming true, but it did.”

Ever the provocateur, Rushdie suggests in the book that it is time to outgrow religion the way children outgrow their need for their parents.

“Yes, I think it’s time to stop living with our parents,” Rushdie told FRANCE 24. “There’s something a little unhealthy about grown-up people who go on living with their mother and father.”

Today’s Holiday:National Bilby Day


Today’s Holiday:
National Bilby Day
Bilbies are nocturnal marsupials in Australia. The animal is not well known compared to the other iconic animals of Australia, a fact that conservationists hope to rectify by raising awareness on National Bilby Day. The event takes place in Charleville, west of Brisbane, where the bilbies are part of a captive breeding program. On Bilby Day, booths sell bilby stuffed animals and offer face-painting and bilby ears to dress children up like the beloved critters. Wildlife experts are on hand to give talks on the current status of bilbies and other endangered species.

Today’s Birthday:Pierre de Ronsard (1524)


Today’s Birthday:
Pierre de Ronsard (1524)

Now considered one of the greatest French poets, Ronsard first served as a page and a squire and seemed destined for a career at court both in France and abroad.

Though the device does not actually burn the skin, its effect is said to feel similar to a hot light bulb being pressed against it.
