This is THE news of the week. And it’s a large part of the news of the season and the year. On Monday evening a Tunisian terrorist and wanted felon drove a semi into a crowded Christmas market in Berlin. Twelve were murdered and around 50 are critically injured.
The scene was reminiscent of a similar truck attack in Nice, France this summer – carried out by another Tunisian terrorist.
The linked Daily Mail article has an excellent explanation of this terrible event, complete with information about the victims and what has gone wrong with Germany. The Tunisian is still on the loose.
BREAKING, 7AM, 12/23: Terrorist killed by Italian police in gun fight.
Assassination In Turkey
On the same day as the Berlin attack, another terrorist murdered Russia’s Ambassador to Turkey. The deranged killer rambled on about Allah and Syria before he was gunned down by police. This murder is a severe threat to regional stability. Putin has vowed immediate retaliatory actions.

The Muslim invaders in Europe and America hate Christians. Please take a moment and read their words about us. And they have a plan to get rid of us. It’s rather important that we understand this and prepare to combat it. Civilization is a stake.
America Imports More Islamists
Meanwhile in D.C., the insanity continues unabated. Acting as if none of the foregoing ever happened, the Obama administration keeps on importing staggering, increasing numbers of Islamists in the U.S. January 20th cannot come fast enough.
Germany Has Trouble With Deportations
Germany has led the West, foolishly importing over one million “refugees” in the past year. Now, as the terrorism commences, Merkel’s government is finding it very difficult to repatriate the invaders to their homelands. Turns out, those countries do not want them either. One realizes that if these types are barred from entering in the first place, then there is no problem getting them out later. Unless one is Merkel or Obama.
At almost the same time this week, President-elect Trump and President Putin both called for ramping up their nuclear arsenals. The talk is geared towards modernization in the face of international instability.
The good news is that both men have called for peace and friendship between the U.S. and Russia. That’s something the world really needs. Hopefully, these calls do not signify heightened tensions.
The latest Star Wars movie is roaring along at the box office. It has only been out of a week but is already one of the highest grossing films of the year. The reviews are somewhat mixed. I plan to see it sooner or later but only once those crowds have cleared a bit. I’ll report what I think.
Christmas Is Almost Here
It has been a somewhat unsettling week. However, relief comes this weekend. The big day is only two days away. Hopefully, you’ve looked over our Prepper Christmas Gift List and placed your orders. Now, barring overnight delivery, it may be a little late. On second thought, if you’re really pressed for time, do this: Print the list or keep it on your phone. Then, go to Walmart or Harbor Freight and see if they have reasonable substitutes.
Whatever you do, do it by tomorrow night. You don’t want to end up on the naughty list.
