1. A member of the US Army National Guard pleaded guilty to intending to provide material support to Daesh.
WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — A member of the US Army National Guard pleaded guilty to intending to provide material support to Daesh, also known as Daesh, the US Justice Department said in a press release on Monday.
Edmonds admitted that he conspired with his cousin, Jonas Edmonds, to send a letter to Daesh indicating their willingness to fight on the terrorist group’s behalf.
Daesh is designated a terrorist organization by numerous countries, including Russia, where it is outlawed.
2. Iran Breaches The Nuclear Deal
(Not sure why I am posting this. Its pretty obvious to all who watched the process that the idea wasn’t to have a deal with Iran but to provide a cover for Obama to undo all the sanctions that prevented Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons and stop nations from trading with them)
Not long after signing the nuclear deal, the ruling clerics of the Islamist state of Iran have clearly breached the agreement and several of the United Nations Security Council Resolutions. What is the Obama administration’s response? He is turning a blind eye to this vital issue. The administration is ignoring these blatant violations and continuing with its efforts to lift sanctions on the Ayatollah’s regime.
The Joint Plan of Action Agreement (JCPOA), which was reached between the six world powers and Iran, clearly mentions “addressing UN Security Council (UNSC) resolutions” regarding the Islamic Republic. Specifically, the JCPOA (UNSCR 2231 Annex II, paragraph three) states that Iran should not undertake any ballistic missiles activity “until the date eight years after the JCPOA Adoption Day or until the date on which the IAEA submits a report confirming the Broader Conclusion, whichever is earlier.”
3. Angela Merkel must be quite afraid of some kind of coup within her party to give this speech.
(If actions speak louder than words then Angela’s speech should carry about as much weight as one of Obamas)
German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s refugee policy has attracted praise from all over the world. Time magazine and the Financial Times newspaper recently named her Person of the Year, and delegates applauded her for so long at her party’s convention on Monday that she had to stop them.
The speech that followed, however, may have surprised supporters of her policies: “Multiculturalism leads to parallel societies and therefore remains a ‘life lie,’ ” or a sham, she said, before adding that Germany may be reaching its limits in terms of accepting more refugees. “The challenge is immense,” she said. “We want and we will reduce the number of refugees noticeably.”

5. Swedish govt in “panic” after ISIS letters give 3 days to convert to Islam or be decapitated
report by RT Arabic published on December 12, the “Swedish government is in a state of panic after dozens of its citizens received threatening letters signed by ISIS and offering them three choices, either conversion to Islam, payment of jizya, or decapitation.”
The letters warned their recipients that they had three days to decide.
Written in the Swedish language, the letters appeared yesterday on dozens of homes in different cities at the same time. Police are reportedly taking the threat “very seriously.” Among other regions, letters appeared in the cities of Ronneba, Sigtuna, Vstroes and the capital Stockholm.
6. Forget The UK’s Trump Petition, 1.5 Million Hungarians Have Signed To Stop The EU’s Asylum Policies
After a quick petition by the long-standing anti-Trump obsessive, Suzanne Kelly, and numerous headlines later – it soon transpired that Mr. Trump was right about a lot of what he said.
And while American politics is perhaps more glamorous than Hungarian politics, it is worth noting that your news wire agencies, and of course that bastion of global, independent reporting – the BBC – have barely uttered a peep about a petition that is rampaging across Hungary; the country in the front line of Europe’s migration crisis.
While some 550,000 Britons (or so we’re told) have signed a petition attempting to block Mr. Trump’s entry to the United Kingdom (representing some 0.8 per cent of the UK) – over 1.5 million Hungarians have petitioned against the EU’s ongoing, open border, open arms, open society asylum policy. That’s 15 per cent of Hungarians.
7. Hundreds of migrants arriving in Norway had mobile phones containing images of executions, severed heads and dead children, police reveal
Hundreds of asylum-seekers entering Norway were discovered to have images of ‘executions’ and ‘severed heads’ on their mobile phones.
The revelation comes amid heightened fears that ISIS is exploiting the migrant crisis to smuggle fighters into Europe, following last month’s attacks in Paris.
Police admitted that the ‘explosion’ of refugees crossing into the country over the summer and in recent months meant that security checks were less thorough than required, and weren’t checking the background of those entering the country.
Concern: Fears are growing that ISIS is using the migrant crisis to sneak jihadists into Europe, after Norwegian police found ‘hundreds’ of brutal images of executions on refugees’ mobile phones. Pictured, a mounted policeman leads a group of refugees and migrants near Dobova, Slovenia
8. Iran sentenced woman to be stoned on Human Rights Day
The Islamic Republic of Iran, which chairs the UN Women’s Board, ordered that a woman be stoned to death on Human Rights day. According to the Bouroujerdi Civil Rights Group, the woman who is known as A.Kh was sentenced to death due to adultery charges. She had previously been sentenced to 25 years in prison for participating together with S.A. in the murder of her husband, Araash Babapoor Tabrizi-Nejad. S.A. also got 100 lashes for adultery. According to the report, there is a chance that A.Kh’s stoning verdict can be reduced to execution in the gallows.
According to Iranian human rights activist Kaveh Taheri, “69 stoning penalties have reportedly been implemented by the Islamic Republic of Iran between March 1980 and July 2010 that were announced by news agencies. But at least 99 to 209 stonings were allegedly carried out under Iran’s Islamic Penal Code. 15 people survived the stoning. Three stoning sentences were converted to execution by the gallows.”
9. USA: LAUSD Closes Schools Due to Safety Threat: Sheriff’s Department
Los Angeles Unified School District schools were closed and all students already at school were sent home Tuesday morning due to a possible threat, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
Superintendent Ramon Cortines said the closure in the nation’s second-largest school district was due to “an abundance of caution” after the LAUSD received what authorities described as an electronic threat Tuesday morning. Details regarding the safety threat were not immediately available.
The FBI was notified and the threat is being analyzed, school police said. All schools are being searched by law enforcement agents, a sweep that will likely take the rest of the day due to the district’s size, Cortines said.
10. Large scale muslim orgs. hold ‘islamophobia’ conferences world wide.
(Interestingly none of the islamic conferences that are taking place are dealing with the issue of terrorism in the West, attacks by muslims toward non-muslims, the migration crisis, the loss of freedoms in the West due to islamic pressures etc. Only on exaggerating the nearly non existent problem of ‘backlash’ which former congressman Joe Walsh explained perfectly)
11. Article about storyline of Homeland which is spookily factual. More so than any documentary I have found. In fact, Homeland this season is what VICE guide used to be before it got Obamafied.
12. Geert Wilders picked as Dutch politician of the year for an unprecedented third time in a row
Thank you Richard, PePi, M., Wrath of Khan, Maria J., Gates of Vienna, Shabnam, Nicolai Sennels, and all.
Here is an interesting edit of an interview with Stephen Coughlin
And here is a new invention by an Israeli start up. A no-blood glucose meter for diabetics. This will save a lot of lives especially for the poor who can’t afford the high cost of strips. Yes, I realize that it can’t compare to the Islamic invention of the anal cavity bomb and the preparatory buggery (Preparation B?)that goes with it. But still, for a tiny and new country like Israel, this is pretty cool.
It is close; it is hard by the door.
Are you sure it isn’t entering the door?
Like you said Merkel has to be worried about losing power to start changing her tune on the major political theme of the EU.
