1: Danish railway company DSB says all train service has been halted between Germany and Denmark after Danish police stopped hundreds of migrants arriving by train across the border.
Danish police spokeswoman Anne Soe says about 100 migrants who arrived from Germany on Wednesday are refusing to leave a train in the Danish port city of Roedby. She says they don’t want to be registered in Denmark.
Under EU rules people seeking asylum should do so in the first EU country they enter and not travel from one country to another.
Many of the migrants say they want to go to Sweden, Norway or Finland, because they have relatives there or believe that the conditions for asylum-seekers are better.
(Showing the blatant dishonesty of this situation. They do not seek asylum. They seek the best possible mooching. More here and here)
(The demography of the ‘migrants’ is of some concern)
2. U.S. Moves to Block Russian Military Buildup in Syria
(Did Obama get out his chalk and make a pink line on the sidewalk?)
WASHINGTON — The United States on Tuesday moved to head off preparations for a suspected Russian military buildup in Syria as Bulgaria agreed to an appeal from the Obama administration to shut its airspace to Russian transport planes. The planes’ destination was the Syrian port city of Latakia.
The administration has also asked Greece to close its airspace to the Russian flights, Greek and American officials said, but Greece has not publicly responded to the request.
3. Huge Russian military planes land in Syria
(Yahoo news not Debka)
Washington (AFP) – At least three Russian military transport planes have landed in Syria in recent days, US officials said Tuesday, as Washington worries about the sort of assistance Moscow is providing to Damascus.
The aircraft have landed at the airport in Latakia on Syria’s Mediterranean coast over the past several days, US officials told AFP on condition of anonymity.
Two of the aircraft were giant Antonov-124 Condor planes and a third was a passenger flight, one of the officials said.
4. Saudi Arabia Bans National Geographic Cover Featuring Pope Francis
(This is the kind of tolerance we can expect from the millions of new Europeans)
Pope Francis has won praise around the world for advancing a more humble, tolerant version of Catholicism, but there’s one country that he evidently hasn’t won over. Saudi Arabia banned the August issue of the National Geographic’s Arabic edition, whose cover featured Francis standing in the Sistine Chapel, due to what the magazine said were “cultural reasons.”
“Dear readers in Saudi Arabia, we apologize that you did not receive August’s magazine,” read a statement published on National Geographic’s Arabic-language Twitter account, from the editor-in-chief, Alsaad Omar al-Menhaly. “According to the distribution company, the magazine was refused entry for cultural reasons.”

6. Why Isn’t the DC Police Chief in Jail For Not Issuing Gun Permits?
(This article illustrates an excellent point. The constitution and rule of law has been suspended and is only used when it can be done for a deconstructionist purpose. Many bureaucrats and authority have defied the real law, and constitutional law, and faced no consequence if it was for a left wing cause like the abandonment of the 2n amendment. But when a woman asks that someone else’s name appears on a ‘marriage’ certificate for two men, she is actually jailed for some time without trial.)
Kim Davis, the Democrat Kentucky county clerk who refused to issue same-sex marriage licenses because of religious objections, was ordered to jail for contempt of court last Thursday. She suggested a compromise of removing her name from the licenses, but Federal District Court Judge David Bunning wouldn’t even grant that reasonable compromise.
Contrast this with Cathy Lanier, chief of the Metropolitan Police Department of the District of Columbia, refusing to issue concealed weapons permits to people unless they can arbitrarily show a “good reason,” nothing required by law. A federal judge issued a preliminary injunction in May stopping her from denying the permits, although notably he did not send Lanier to jail for contempt.
7. Hungarian camerawoman faces criminal investigation after kicking a little girl and tripping up a migrant father carrying his terrified young child as they fled police
(We were savages back in my day. I recall when a citizen helped a policeman catch a criminal who was running from them, they got an honorable mention in the papers and maybe even the key to the city. Kicking the girl, that seems like a bad thing, but tripping an illegal running from the police, well that used to be highly commendable and brave. Lots of video at site showing her bravery in the face of hundreds of illegals fleeing the authorities)

10. Deserter Obama Traded 5 Taliban Commanders for Charged w/Misbehavior Before the Enemy
Military prosecutors have reached into a section of military law seldom used since World War II in the politically fraught case against Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the soldier held prisoner for years by the Taliban after leaving his post in Afghanistan.
Observers wondered for months if Bergdahl would be charged with desertion after the deal brokered by the U.S. to bring him home. He was — but he was also charged with misbehavior before the enemy, a much rarer offense that carries a stiffer potential penalty in this case.
I think Obama did get his way. This man is guilty of treason and causing the deaths of his fellow soldiers who would not be dead if he had not deserted and given information to the enemy. He deserves the firing squad.
Pavelina the Constitution forbids charging anyone with treason except during a declared war, we are at war by since Congress hasn’t passed a declaration of war treason charges can’t be brought.
See the video in the comment following this for examples of how the people in the US Universities don’t know the Constitution.
After thinking about this for a while I think you deserve a fuller explanation. My earlier statement still stands but since you don’t speak GI you don’t realize how serious the charge is, the only thing worse they could have charged him with is treason. Since that is not possible under our legal system they dropped down one level and charged misbehavior before the enemy. Under the old Articles of War this was called desertion in the heat of battle and carried a max penalty of death. Since they can’t meet the legal requirements thaLt men died because he deserted it is doubtful if they could make a death penalty stick so they probably won’t try for one. Life with or without the possibility of parole is going to be hell on earth for him. He will serve his time in the Fort Leavenworth military pen, the others in the pen will hate him and see that he never feels safe and is always worried about what is going to happen to him next.
FYI the term GI started in WWII and stands for government issue, it is a dialect of English spoken by the US military with sub-dialects for each branch. there are also slightly different dialects for officers and enlisted although both understand and speak the others dialect. To be truly fluent in the enlisted dialect of any branch you have to be able to use the F word as a noun, verb and adverb in a single sentence.
6 – Here is a major part of the problem explained by a Princeton Professor.
After it was discovered that most High School graduates didn’t have enough knowledge about the US to pass a citizenship test I have heard people suggesting that you have to take the citizenship test and pass it before you are allowed to vote. (This one won’t fly) and after I informed one kid that the Constitution limited what the Government could do I was told that we needed to change the Constitution to allow the President do anything he wants.
It is more like Obama ran his finger through the water and called it a line.
