MOSCOW — Boris Nemtsov, a prominent Russian opposition leader and former first deputy prime minister, was shot dead Friday evening in central Moscow in the highest-profile assassination in Russia during the tenure of President Vladimir V. Putin.
The shooting, on a bridge near Red Square, under the towering domes of St. Basil’s Cathedral, ended Mr. Nemtsov’s two-decade career as a champion of democratic reforms, beginning in the wake of the Soviet Union’s collapse in 1991, and just days before he was to lead a rally to protest the war in Ukraine.
(I post only because pop culture has influence. If Kim Kardouchian wrote something reasonable on her stunningly average loins I would have to post that too if it meant people might wake up to the reality of the influence of islam. But in this case Madonna is an ill informed idiot. She is trashing the only political party that plans to do anything about the Nazi like antisemitism in France. The muslims. And now even Jewish groups, famous for suicidal politics, have endorsed Le Pen. Madonna stick to falling off your shoes and leave politics to people who get it)
3. Norway isn’t all bad
(At last! a sensible idea from Immigration Canada! If they were in such danger in their nation of origin that they had to flee for their lives and qualify for refugee status here there is simply no excuse that they get to vacation back at home every six months as many do)
Ottawa has slowly — and quietly — stepped up efforts to strip permanent resident status from former refugees who were granted asylum in Canada and later returned to the country where they once faced persecution.
Wielding new powers that came in with changes to immigration law in 2012, the federal government is now actively pursuing reopening asylum files under what’s known as a “cessation application” and forcing refugees whose circumstances have changed to leave Canada.
The number of people who had their protection “ceased” in 2014 was almost five times the number in 2012 — rising from 24 to 116 — according to the Immigration and Refugee Board (IRB), which is mandated to decide if the individuals are still refugees or not.
An internal document obtained by the Canadian Council for Refugees under an access to information request showed the Conservative government has set an annual target of 875 applications to strip refugee status.
(Of course by all that he meant that he was a jihadi who beheaded people. But we all knew that already, didn’t we?)
Thank you WTD., Yucki, Richard, Wrath of Khan,
(Video debate on whether or not islam is the problem with muslims or if muslims are just very likely carriers of rabies or distemper and its a coincidence that 65% of muslims in the UK all believe in killing people for drawing the pirate mohamed etc. Sarcasm aside, the video is excellent and the guest is dead on the money and deserves our attention)
9. Oklahoma has its first ever ‘muslim day’. Not everyone is thrilled
A lot of wonderful people sent links in and offered their thoughts in the comments today. There is a serious amount of shifting in the general state of things. More and more islamic subversion and penetration is being revealed especially in Quebec but elsewhere also, and the mass media narrative is becoming worth observing. In this post alone in item 7 you see a CNN spin doctor who sounds a lot like Obama’s appointee to the head of NASA to force it to do muslim self esteem utterly confounded by the reasons that the Islamic State, and by extension muslims who support it around the world, would do the things they do. He offers a cookie for those who might know a thing or two so he sounds reasonable a bit but his narrative is basically the old, ‘look up in the sky trick’ Trudeau was so famous for.
Then we have a truly excellent explanation by an ex-muslim in item 8 who’s interview is so lucid and complete it is practically a course. You would never have seen this on TV even a few months ago. Quebec today busted a major library issue at Concordia where it was found that islamic literature of the kind Canadians like to think doesn’t represent islam was making it to 4000 muslim students and it was shut down. I hope to have that video in English tomorrow. So all in all, this is a good time to observe the world carefully.
I would also like to welcome a number of new commenters to the site. I hope you like it here and make yourselves at home.
