  1. Transgender Muslim woman hacked to death days after father issued chilling threat on TV (express, Nov 1, 2016)

    “A TRANSGENDER Muslim woman was brutally hacked to death just days after her father called for her death on television.

    Raina Aliev, formerly Adam, was dismembered in Moscow after marrying a man known as Viktor, in Russia.

    Just days earlier her father – who disowned Raina – issued a chilling warning to his daughter, saying: “Let him be killed, I don’t want to see him. Bring him here and kill him in front of my eyes.”

    Raina had told Russian police she had received death threats after transitioning to a woman.

    It is unclear where the 25-year-old was killed but her body was so badly “cut up” that those who knew Raina said she was unrecognisable.

    The victim was from an ethnically Chechen family living in Dagestan, a Muslim region between the Caspian Sea and Chechnya in the Russian Trans-Caucasus…”

  2. Muslim doctor who beat daughter over Halloween party banned from practice for a year (express, Nov 1, 2016)

    “A MUSLIM heart doctor who beat his teenage daughter with a walking stick and rained punches on her head because she went to a Halloween party has been banned from practising for a year.

    Dr Gohar Rahman beat his 17-year-old daughter after she defied him by spending the night at a Halloween party last year and staying over at a male friend’s house.

    The married father-of-three, who works as a Consultant Cardiologist at Wigan Infirmary in Manchester, accused his daughter of “bringing shame” to the family and branded her a “prostitute” before subjecting her to a beating.

    He was previously given a 10-month suspended sentence at Liverpool Crown Court in February after admitting assault occasioning actual bodily harm, but a medical hearing has now banned him from practising as punishment for bringing “disrepute” to the profession.

    The tribunal reviewed the case, in which Dr Rahman grabbed his daughter, smashed her head against a car seat, caned her on the bottom with a walking stick and then rained punches on her head…”

  3. ‘We are losing control of the streets’ Merkel’s Germany descends into lawlessness (express, Nov 1, 2016)

    “GERMAN Chancellor Angela Merkel is facing catastrophe over her failed migrant policy, according to a new report.

    During the first six months of 2016, migrants committed 142,500 crimes, according to the Federal Criminal Police Office.

    And the country has been hit by a spate of horrendous violent crime including rapes, sexual and physical assaults, stabbings, home invasions, robberies, burglaries and drug trafficking.

    Adding to the country’s woes is the fact that thousands of people have gone missing after travelling to the country on invitation from the country’s leader.

    Germany took in more than 1.1million migrants in the past year and parts of the country are crippled with a lack of infrastructure.

    Now the true reality is hitting home ahead of next year’s elections as the far right surges in the polls threatening to topple the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) leader Mrs Merkel.

    According to a report by the international policy council the Gatestone Institute, local police in many parts of the country admit that they are stretched to the limit.

    The report states: “The rape of a ten-year-old girl in Leipzig, the largest city in Saxony, has drawn renewed attention to the spiralling levels of violent crime perpetrated by migrants in cities and towns across Germany.

    “During the first six months of 2016, migrants committed 142,500 crimes, according to the Federal Criminal Police Office. This is equivalent to 780 crimes committed by migrants every day, an increase of nearly 40 per cent over 2015. The data includes only those crimes in which a suspect has been caught.

    “Thousands of migrants who entered the country as ‘asylum seekers’ or ‘refugees’ have gone missing. They are, presumably, economic migrants who entered Germany on false pretences.

    “Many are thought to be engaging in robbery and criminal violence.”

    According to Freddi Lohse of the German Police Union in Hamburg, many migrant offenders view the leniency of the German justice system as a green light to continue delinquent behaviour, says the report.

    He said: “They are used to tougher consequences in their home countries.

    “They have no respect for us.”

    Meanwhile a female police officer has admitted that officers are under attack and that the courts are a “joke.”

    In a new book, Tania Kambouri, a German police officer, said: “For weeks, months and years I have noticed that Muslims, mostly young men, do not have even a minimum level of respect for the police.

    “When we are out patrolling the streets, we are verbally abused by young Muslims.

    “There is the body language, and insults like ‘s*** cop’ when passing by.

    “If we make a traffic stop, the aggression increases ever further, this is overwhelmingly the case with migrants.

    “It cannot be that offenders continue to fill the police files, hurt us physically, insult us, whatever, and there are no consequences.

    “Many cases are closed or offenders are released on probation or whatever.

    “Yes, what is happening in the courts today is a joke.”

    Migrants committed 208,344 crimes in 2015, according to a confidential police report leaked to Bild.

    This figure represents an 80 per cent increase since 2014 and is equivalent to 570 crimes committed by migrants every day, or 23 crimes each hour, in 2015 alone.

    The report added: “The growing sense of lawlessness is substantiated by an October 24 YouGov poll which found that 68 per cent of Germans believe that security in the country has deteriorated during the past several years.

    “Nearly 70 per cent of respondents said they fear for their lives and property in German train stations and subways, while 63 per cent feel unsafe at large public events.””

  4. Ashamed Merkel shuns party conference after leader blasts her ‘SCHOOLGIRL’ migrant tactics (express, Nov 1, 2016)

    “ANGELA Merkel’s fragile leadership is on the brink of total disintegration after refusing to attend her sister party’s annual conference because its leader lambasted her disastrous migrant policy.

    Horst Seehofer, head of the Christian Social Union (CSU), tore into the German Chancellor during a 13 minute tirade, claiming Merkel handled the refugee crisis like a “schoolgirl”.

    Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union has been in coalition with the CSU for decades, but the German leader will now miss the conference taking place in Munich on Friday November 4.

    It comes as a further blow to Merkel’s reign after her party came third during the regional elections in September, including in her home state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, polling just 19 per cent.

    Mr Seehhofer, who is also the Bavarian prime minister, laid into Merkel in September this year, claiming Merkel was “copping out” of responsibility over the migrants.

    He said: “What we now need is a system of rules, a kind of guarantee, for drastically limiting the influx of refugees. The past cannot be allowed to repeat itself…”

    • “What we now need is a system of rules, a kind of guarantee, for drastically limiting the influx of refugees. The past cannot be allowed to repeat itself…”

      Patience, Herr Seehofer, patience. Germany’s current trajectory (courtesy of the Merkel Gang) will likely see the very ugliest episode of your nation’s history “repeat itself”.

      The Muslims will leave you no option (other than cultural genocide) and, soon enough, the cattle cars will be rolling again. All that remains to be seen is if their destination will be docks and airports or smoking chimneys.

      • Once again we agree, and it will be all European nations loading the train cars not just Germany. The left around the world by acting like fascists to try and take over the world have created the situation where all Western nations are going to have to abandon civilization if the wish to maintain their national sovereignty and culture. Thanks to the left strong man rule is being forced on the Western Nations. Hopefully they will be honest strong men rather then fascist criminals like the Clinton Crime Family.

      • I’m over-sensitive about such casual reference to the Holocaust. Elsewhere I’d just avert my eyes, but this is my home and you’re family.
        Just so you know…

        • I know and do my best to not make references to it mainly because of you and any other Jew that might be reading the comments. But partially because while I see major atrocities in the future I keep praying that in this war murder will not be put on an assembly line.

        • I’m over-sensitive about such casual reference to the Holocaust.

          Yucki, please understand that my references to the Holocaust are anything but “casual”. I have been predicting a Muslim holocaust for quite some time. Simply put, Islam (and by extension, the world’s Muslim population) is making too many enemies too fast.

          Taken in combination with how Islam insists upon being answered with violence in equal or greater measure, the grimmest of outcomes is, literally, guaranteed.

          I write these messages in the (almost futile) hope that people will see where all of this is leading to. Almost nobody on both sides of this dispute is willing to even remotely concede that the end result could quite possibly be (either way) death on an unimaginable scale.

          We all know that, were Islam to gain global ascendancy, somewhere around 25% of the world’s population would be put to death. Islam’s demand to be paid in kind places that same percentage of human life (this time, Muslim) at risk. Nobody wants to admit this and it is that tacit omission that brings us ever closer to the brink.

          That many people routinely call Islam a “death cult” is no coincidence.

          Lost in all of this is the lesson of Islam’s invasion of India. (See: Islamic Invasion Of India: The Greatest Genocide In History)

          From the link: India’s population is said to have been around 600 million at the time of Muslim invasion. By the mid 1500’s the Hindu population was 200 million.

          The subcontinent’s population did not recover to the 600 million mark until 1975! Islam’s invasion of India was one of the most monumental genocides in all of human history. Yet, very few people are aware of this, much less willing to talk about it.

  5. Former Daesh militant exposes the terror group (saudigazette, Nov 1, 2016)

    “JEDDAH — Dhahban Central Jail, north of Jeddah, is one of the largest prisons in the Kingdom where many terror suspects are held.

    Yousuf, 40, who allegedly attempted to smuggle missiles into the Kingdom through Yemen borders was one of them.

    The man, who sympathized with Al-Qaeda terrorist group, was arrested and sentenced to 20 years.

    Today, he has a totally different role.

    He works as a counselor to change the mindset of his former inmates who were following an ideology of takfir or branding opponents as infidels.

    Yousuf is not the counselor’s real name. He said the new generation of terrorists who belonged to Daesh terror group, has adopted a new strategy to weaken the important position of Islamic scholars and remove the respect they have in the community.

    Yousuf said his jail term gave him an opportunity to correct his wrong views. “I have realized that I had deviated from the true path of Islam after joining Daesh,” he added.

    “The main problem with terrorists is ego as they believe that their radical views are always correct and they think that Allah has selected them to emancipate the humanity.”

    He added: “But when we talk to these people we can understand the enormity of ignorance they have about Islam and its teachings and the absurdity of some wrong concepts, which they learned from Twitter or extremists who had already deviated from the true path of Islam.”

    Yousuf was talking to Okaz/Saudi Gazette while sitting at Prince Mohammed bin Naif Counseling Center with 14 prisoners who wore a blue uniform. A security official said they were volunteering their services to correct their wrong and dangerous thoughts of militants.

    One of the prisoners said he was a strong follower of the Daesh ideology and he used to promote it through the social media networks. “I was able to get rid of those un-Islamic thoughts and ideas as a result of the efforts of Yousuf and his colleagues,” he told Okaz/Saudi Gazette.

    Another terror suspect, who was previously working as an imam and khateeb of a mosque in Taif, said many of the Daesh sympathizers whom he met at the jail had no deep knowledge of Islam.

    It was easy for a terror suspect to advise another suspect as both of them know the reasons for their extremist views. “In most cases, such counseling efforts were effective and successful. “I was successful in convincing a number of prisoners held for terrorism charges,” Yousuf said.

    There are more than 1,000 prisoners in Dhahran Jail and a substantial number of them were arrested for being involved in terrorism after joining Al-Qaeda terror group. By the beginning of 2011, many young militants joined Daesh terror group in Syria and Iraq…”

  6. Turkish Prime Minister Rejects Criticism on Paper Detentions (abnews, Nov 1, 2016)

    “Turkey’s prime minister on Tuesday shrugged off the European Union’s criticism on media freedoms, following the detentions of at least 13 senior staff members of an opposition newspaper.

    During a televised speech to his party’s legislators, Binali Yildirim said Turkey wouldn’t be taught lessons by Europe, and the government would “protect press freedom until the end.”

    Monday’s detentions of chief editor, columnists and a cartoonist at one of Turkey’s oldest newspapers, Cumhuriyet, sparked an international outcry including from the U.S. and the EU. European Parliament President Martin Schulz called the detentions on Twitter “yet another red line crossed against freedom of expression in Turkey.”

    Referring to Schulz’s comments, Yildirim said Turkey wouldn’t give in to threats and argued that the issue of media freedoms was being used by the EU to try to limit Turkey’s steps in combating terror.

    “Brother, we won’t take notice of your line. The nation draws the red line for us. What importance does your line have? We’ll draw a line over your line,” Yildirim said. “They keep putting press freedom in front of us whenever we take steps in combating terror.”…”

  7. 9 Killed in Car Bomb Blast at Checkpoint in Northern Nigeria (abcnews, Nov 1, 2016)

    “A car bomb targeting a military checkpoint on a road leading to Nigeria’s northeastern city of Maiduguri exploded Tuesday, killing all nine people in the vehicle, police and witnesses said.

    It was unclear if any soldiers were hurt in the attack, which was blamed on Boko Haram extremists.

    Preliminary reports indicate that those killed were the driver and passengers in the explosives-laden minivan, said police deputy superintendent Victor Isuku…”

  8. Egyptian gang attacks ‘British tourist’ and shoves orange in his mouth in shocking robbery (express, video, Nov 1, 2016)

    “A GANG of thieves armed with a knife attacked a tourist and shoved an orange in his mouth to stifle his screams as they stole his money and phone.

    The tourist, who is thought to be British or Spanish, was walking down Via Vicenza in Rome when he was attacked from behind by a gang of Egyptian thugs wearing hats and hoodies.

    CCTV footage from a hotel near the city’s Termini train station captures the moment one of the gang wearing a baseball cap approach and walk beside his victim.

    The CCTV shows the victim attempt to walk away but the thief kicks the tourist to the floor in the attack which took place on October 30…”

  9. ‘Sharia councils need SUPPORT’ Labour MP says Muslims see inquiry as ‘Islamophobic’ (express, Nov 1, 2016)

    “SHARIA councils need to be reformed and supported in order to prevent women from being discriminated against, a Labour MP has argued.

    Speaking on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme ahead of Tuesday’s Home Affairs Select Committee inquiry into Sharia Councils, Naz Shah said the “under-resourced” organisations were vital in settling disputes within the Muslim Community.

    The committee is expected to examine how the councils operate and their relationship with the British legal system.

    Addressing concerns around Sharia councils, the Bradford West MP said: “There are issues with Sharia councils, usually they’re under-resourced, there’s not that professional standard.

    “What we need to be doing is supporting the Sharia councils.

    “Sharia councils sometimes are last resorts, where people have lost legal aid, we’ve had austerity kicking in and the courts don’t want to deal with small disputes.

    “So they [Sharia courts] can act as a complimentary arbitration service but what we need to be careful of is that whether they are discriminating against women and that is where the issue lies.”…”

  10. ‘We’re proud to be RACISTS’ Italian mayor blasted for scathing attack on ‘stupid’ migrants (express, Nov 1, 2016)

    “AN ITALIAN mayor has come under fire after saying he will shoot ’n*****s and gypsies’ and build a pig farm next to mosques as tensions continue to rise over migration.

    More than 160,000 asylum seekers have been housed in Italy since the start of 2014, according to date from the interior ministry.

    Italy has been one of the first destinations along migrants typical routes for months, receiving thousands of new arrivals who continue to risk their lives to cross the Mediterranean on rickety smuggler’s boats.

    But many have been critical of the welcoming of so many refugees – and now one Mayor from the town of Albettone in Vento has launched a scathing attack on the new arrivals.

    Speaking on La Zanzara on Radio 24, Joe Formaggio said: “Immigrants? If they send them to us, we will protect our houses. We are proud to be racists.”

    The mayor claims his city “exports brains and imports n*****s” who “are less intelligent than us, they are inferior”.

    Amid possible plans to open a mosque in the city, he claimed he would open a “large farm of pigs if they open a mosque here”.

    Mr Formaggio added: ”If refugees are sent here to Albettone, the barricades in Gorino will be seen as nothing.

    “Here we do not want immigrants, n*****s or gypsies. They have a lower IQ: history proves it.

    “We have a shooting range and the highest number of licenses to carry weapons in the whole Veneto region.

    “And we do not want anyone to come and bother us. They risk their lives around us.”

    The comments were deemed so strong that the Secretary General of the Vicenza Chamber has been forced to intervene…”

  11. Russia says resumption of Syria peace talks delayed indefinitely (reuters, Nov 1, 2016)

    “Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu said on Tuesday a Western failure to rein in violent Islamists in Syria had indefinitely delayed the resumption of peace talks.

    Shoigu said that rebels backed by Western governments had been attacking civilians in the Syrian city of Aleppo, despite a pause in Russian and Syrian air attacks.

    “As a result, the prospects for the start of a negotiation process and the return to peaceful life in Syria are postponed for an indefinite period,” Shoigu said.

    Separately, a Kremlin spokesman said that a temporary pause in Russian and Syrian government air strikes on Aleppo was in force for now, but could not be extended if the rebels in the city did not halt their attacks…”

    • Russia: Time for West to decide if they are fighting terrorists or Russia – Shoigu

      “The start of the political process and the return of the Syrian people to a peaceful life is being postponed indefinitely,” said Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu at a teleconference in Moscow, Tuesday.

      The Russian defence minister accused the West of impeding the fight against terrorism, saying, “Maybe they forgot at whose hands innocent people in Belgium, France, Egypt, Iraq and other countries were killed?” He went on to call on Russia’s Western partners “to work together” to combat terrorists instead of “[putting] spokes into partners’ wheels.”

      • He is right, Obama has been fighting the West instead of the terrorists, this is another thing that will be decided by the election.

  12. Turkey: ‘We don’t care about your red line’ on press freedom – PM tells EU

    Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said Turkey would disregard the EU’s ‘red line’ on press freedom, while speaking from the parliament in Ankara on Tuesday.

    SOT, Binali Yildirim, Prime Minister of Turkey (Turkish): “My dear brothers, we will hang on to the freedom of the press till the end. We don’t have a problem with the freedom of press. Actually this is the point on which we have a conflict with our friends in Europe. They are putting freedom of press in front of us in every step that we take on counter terrorism. Yet today someone from the European Parliament says that those arrests related to that newspaper is their red line. Brother, we don’t care about your red line. It’s the people who draw the red line. What importance does your line have? We drow another red line on top of your yours. Turkey is not a country to be brought in line with salvos and threats. Turkey gets its power from the people and will be held accountable by the people. You should have thought about the red line when you were promoting the terror organisation in your parliament. Where was your red line? Where were you when the terror organisation was reading their statements in your squares. Where were you when this country’s president’s speech was banned by the court in your countries? As you know, the terror organisation addressed their supporters at a meeting through a video conference, but they banned the president of the Turkish Republic in a court when he wanted to do the same thing. And than they talk big about the freedom of speech etc. Come off it. You can not reach anywhere with double standards. You should be honest, fair. When it comes to you, it’s like this, but when it comes to Turkey, it’s different. There is no such a thing.”

    • the gateway pundit – SMOKING GUN! Wikileaks Email Shows Intent to Destroy Emails After Reports on Secret Email Server

      The Clinton Campaign discussed destroying email evidence after story broke nationally that Hillary Clinton had an illegal homebrew server for her emails.

      On March 2, 2015 The New York Times reported that Hillary Clinton used a personal email server as Secretary of State.

      On March 2, 2015 Hillary Clinton’s top aide and attorney wrote John Podesta that “we are going to have to dump all those emails.”

      • zero hedge – Podesta To Mills: “We Are Going To Have To Dump All Those Emails”

        In today’s, 25th, Wikileaks release of hacked Podesta emails, one of the notable highlights is a March 2, 2015 exchange between John Podesta and Clinton aide Cheryl Mills in which the Clinton Campaign Chair says “On another matter….and not to sound like Lanny, but we are going to have to dump all those emails.”

        The email, which may indicate intent, was sent at the same time as the NYT story “Hillary Clinton Used Personal Email Account at State Dept., Possibly Breaking Rules” – which for the first time revealed the existence of Hillary’s email server – hit, and just days before Hillary’s press conference addressing what was at the time, the stunning revelation that she had a personal email account, and server, in her home.

        Mills’ response: “Think you just got your new nick name.”

        It is unclear which “Lanny” is referred to: the infamous former DOJ staffer Lanny Breuer who quit in January 2013 after telling Frontline that some banks are too big to fail, or, more likely Lanny Davis, special counsel to President Bill Clinton, and spokesperson for the President and the White House on matters concerning campaign-finance investigations and other legal issues

        It is also unclear – for now – which emails Podesta is referring to in the thread, but Podesta adds: “better to do so sooner than later.” We can hope that a subsequent response, yet to be leaked by Wikileaks, will provide more color.

        If the exchange is shown to disclose intent to mislead, it will negate the entire narrative prepared by Clinton that she merely deleted “personal” emails and will reveal a strategic plan to hinder the State Department and FBI “investigation.”

        This is the first time that particular exchange has emerged among the Podesta emails.

        Furthermore, a search for Lanny Davis reveals the following curious exchange between Robby Mook and John Podesta from March 8, 2015, just days after the abovementioned exchange, in which Mook says

        We gotta zap Lanny out of our universe. Can’t believe he committed her to a private review of her hard drive on TV.

        It seems the Clinton campaign was not happy with being set on a course of transparency by Bill Clinton’s special counsel.

        * * *

        Finally,in a separate email sent out in the first week of March 2015, by Clinton campaign communications director, Jennifer Palmieri, we get yet another confirmation that the president actively mislead the public when he said he didn’t know Hillary was using a private email address:

        Suggest Philippe talk to Josh or Eric. They know POTUS and HRC emailed. Josh has been asked about that. Standard practice is not to confirm anything about his email, so his answer to press was that he would not comment/confirm. I recollect that Josh was also asked if POTUS ever noticed her personal email account and he said something like POTUS likely had better things to do than focus on his Cabinet’s email addresses.

        Perhaps while the DOJ/FBI is taking a second look into Huma Abedin’s emails, it can also take a repeat look at some of these, especially the ones involving POTUS.

    • Fox News – Clinton supporter: James Comey is damaging our democracy

      Amb. Daniel Benjamin, former coordinator for counterterrorism at the State Department, blasts the FBI director’s decision to announce the bureau is renewing its probe into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server

    • FBI’s Comey said to retain confidence of attorney general

      Attorney General Loretta Lynch continues to have confidence in FBI Director James Comey despite his controversial decision to renew a probe related to Hillary Clinton’s use of a private e-mail system, an official said.

      Comey and Lynch spoke briefly after a meeting in Washington on Monday, according to the official, who requested anonymity to discuss a private conversation. The FBI chief and the attorney general still have a good working relationship, the official said, even though they disagreed on his decision to disclose the probe so close to the Nov. 8 presidential election.

      In their conversation, Lynch stressed the seriousness of resolving the matter, the official said. However, it’s not clear if there will be an update on the probe that could be provided to lawmakers and the public this week, according to the official, who added that no more announcements are currently planned.

      After their meeting, the Justice Department sent a three-paragraph letter to lawmakers telling them only that it will “work closely” and “as expeditiously as possible” with the FBI on the new probe, without providing more specifics on the investigation. Top Senate Democrats responded in a statement late Monday that the letter was “disappointing and inadequate.”

      A political firestorm erupted after Comey told congressional leaders in an Oct. 28 letter that the bureau discovered new emails that might be relevant to the agency’s previously completed investigation into Clinton’s email use. That revelation placed the bureau and Lynch under pressure to provide additional details.

      Comey’s move has tested his relationship with Lynch. Comey informed lawmakers of the FBI’s revived inquiry over the objections of Lynch and other top department officials, who strongly urged him to abide by department policy to not do anything significant in a major investigation so close to an election, if doing so could affect the results.

      Comey said in a memo to the FBI staff that he felt compelled to inform lawmakers of the new development because he had earlier announced that the Clinton investigation was closed.

      Both of the nation’s top law enforcement officers have been bruised by the email issue. Lynch was criticized in June after she met privately with Bill Clinton aboard her plane in Phoenix, days before she was due to receive Comey’s recommendation in the original email investigation. Lynch described the meeting as a “social conversation” but acknowledged it “cast a shadow” over her role.

      Comey was denounced by Republicans for his finding in July that no prosecutions were warranted even after he described the handling of classified emails by Clinton and her aides as “extremely careless.” Lynch accepted Comey’s findings. Then Democrats have slammed Comey since Friday, when he declared that the inquiry was being revived without providing details or explaining why.

      Comey said in a memo to the FBI staff that he had to notify lawmakers because he had previously told them the investigation was complete. Waiting until after the election could have brought accusations that the bureau tried to hide a significant investigative finding, said a U.S. law enforcement official who asked not to be identified. And because lawmakers are away from Washington until after the election there was no chance to provide a classified in-person briefing, the official said.

      The latest crisis began during a separate probe, when investigators found a laptop containing e-mails from Clinton aide Huma Abedin. On Sunday they obtained a warrant to examine whether those messages are work-related and whether they contain classified information. It’s possible the messages duplicate those already turned over by Clinton and her team or unearthed by the FBI during its earlier investigation.

      The new emails were found weeks ago, raising questions about why Comey informed lawmakers only last week. It took time. however, for investigators to realize what they had and to determine what they needed to do next, the law enforcement official said. Comey said in his memo that was briefed on the findings on Oct. 27.

      The revived email inquiry has given fresh ammunition to Clinton’s Republican presidential rival, Donald Trump. He said it was “bigger than Watergate,” while the Democratic nominee said she’s “confident” the investigation won’t change the bureau’s decision in July to end its original probe.

      Top Senate Democrats pressed this week for more answers.

      “Voters are going to the polls at this very moment, and it is incumbent on the FBI Director and Attorney General to provide Congress and the American people with clear, unambiguous answers about what the FBI knows and doesn’t know about the emails in question, including how many are duplicate emails that have already been reviewed by the FBI,” according to a joint statement from Sens. Dianne Feinstein of California and Patrick Leahy of Vermont, the top Democrats on the Senate Intelligence Committee and Senate Judiciary Committee, respectively.

      Separately, Harry Reid, the Senate’s top Democrat, delivered an unusual rebuke to the FBI chief in a letter Sunday that said Comey may have broken a law against public officials using their position to influence electoral politics by revealing the review so close to the election.

      Some Democrats also have accused Comey of having a “double standard” in disclosing the Clinton probe while not discussing other current or previous investigations that they say involve Republican nominee Donald Trump’s campaign.

      The FBI is now using a computer program to winnow down the number of Abedin e-mails that may be pertinent to the Clinton investigation and to determine if they are duplicates of what investigators have already seen. That process could conclude this week.

      Still, it’s not yet possible to assess whether a complete review can be finished before Election Day. If investigators find new emails with potentially significant or classified material, it will take more time to analyze them, possibly including sending them to other agencies for vetting, said the law enforcement official, who asked for anonymity to discuss a pending investigation.

    • BREITBART – After 12 Point Lead Vanishes in Week, Clinton Plans Victory Fireworks Show

      The New York Post reports on Hillary Clinton’s elaborate victory celebration plans for an “Election Night explosion of fireworks over the Hudson River.” However, the Post notes that Clinton’s victory lap plans could “blow up in her face” now that her lead in the polls has vanished after the FBI announced last Friday that it’s reopening the criminal investigation into her mishandling of classified emails. Donald Trump now leads Clinton in the latest ABC News/Washington Post and Los Angeles Times tracking polls.

      From the New York Post:

      Hillary Clinton may have lit the fuse for her victory celebration a little too soon — by planning an Election Night explosion of fireworks over the Hudson River, The Post has learned.

      Law enforcement officials and the FDNY have been told to prepare for a barge-launched pyrotechnic display off Manhattan’s Javits Center, where Clinton and running mate Tim Kaine will join their supporters for the Nov. 8 vote count, sources said.

      The aerial detonations would last for two minutes, with the triumphal celebration permitted to start as early as 9:30 p.m. — a mere half-hour after the polls close in New York, sources said.

      Cops and firefighters were blown away by Clinton’s hubris in planning the fireworks display, which would eclipse the shower of blazing sparkles that preceded the balloon drop at July’s Democratic National Convention.

      “It’s a little presumptuous of her to plan on winning. I guess she put in for this before Friday,” one NYPD detective said.

      Others said the actual election results could put a damper on things, but one firefighter raised the specter of a 2000-style recount and added, “So what’s she going to do, put the fireworks on ice?”

      Another source wondered: “If she loses, will she take it over to the East Side and sell it to Trump for half-price?”

      A retired firefighter said the FDNY’ s “rank and file is outraged they are being forced to do political work.”

      “This will make it seem like the firefighters endorsed Hillary,” the source said.

      • Hillary and her people are believing their own propaganda, they thought that no one would believe any of the charges against her and that the emails and other evidence would never surface. Their arrogance has once again turned the “little people” against her.

  15. ‘We are losing control of the streets’ Merkel’s Germany descends into lawlessness
    GERMAN Chancellor Angela Merkel is facing catastrophe over her failed migrant policy, according to a new report. During the first six months of 2016, migrants committed 142,500 crimes, according to the Federal Criminal Police Office.

    And Germany has been hit by a spate of horrendous violent crime including rapes, sexual and physical assaults, stabbings, home invasions, robberies, burglaries and drug trafficking.

    Adding to the country’s woes is the fact that thousands of people have gone missing after travelling there on invitation from Anegla Merkel.

    Germany took in more than 1.1million migrants in the past year and parts of the country are crippled with a lack of infrastructure.

  16. Watchdog group: Virginia appears to be organizing to support vote fraud
    By J.E. Dyer October 31, 2016A watchdog group, the Virginia Voters Alliance, is urging public attention to the astounding number of provisional ballots that have been printed and distributed to Virginia counties for the general election next week.

    Provisional ballots are used by people whose eligibility to cast a ballot cannot be confirmed at the time they show up at the polls. Most of you readers out there have probably never had recourse to a provisional ballot, because you’ve always been legal, duly registered voters.

    But the use of provisional ballots has been a regular feature of elections for a long time now. How carefully it is administered depends on location.

    Virginia is apparently preparing for Provisional Voting Armageddon. Your patience with these alarming words will be rewarded; read on.

  17. Obama administration turns blind eye to anti-white violence
    By Hans Bader November 1, 2016

    The Obama administration has repeatedly turned a blind eye to racial discrimination and harassment when the victims are white. One recent example is its indifference to discrimination by racist left-wing protesters at the University of California at Berkeley. Their misconduct was captured on video on October 21, and nationally publicized by the Washington Times, Reason Magazine, Fox News, and the Daily Caller.

    As the Daily Caller noted:

    A video of Friday’s protest shows a large group of protesters preventing white students from passing over a bridge while allowing access to students of color. In addition to blocking access to Berkeley’s Sather Gate, a key bridge on the route to many classes, the wall of protesters also prevented white students from studying in the Student Union and stopped traffic at the main intersection in the front of campus.

    As Fox News observed, the protesters were “harassing white students trying to study, barring their path across a key bridge while allowing students of color safe passage. The protest, which began last Friday, blocked Berkeley’s Sather Gate, disrupted studying students in the Student Union.”

    Berkeley did nothing about this, even though campus police were right nearby when it happened. The Obama administration also said nothing about this, even though it has often taken note of far more trivial racial matters that offend minority protesters, such as Halloween costumes that protesters claim “appropriate” non-white cultures.

    • Obama has spent the last 7 3/4 years fomenting a race war, we can expect the violence to get worse the closer we get to him leaving office. And when Hillary loses expect the blacks and radical leftists to explode all across the nation.

      Remember how Obama was raised, by what were literally card carrying communists who hated the US and raised their Grandson to hate the US. Throughout his entire time in the White House he has done everything he can to hurt the US and will continue to do so after he leaves office. One of the things he has done is deliberately increased racial tensions partially by backing every grievance group that comes down the pike. Once Trump takes office the violence will be hard to stop and the racial divisions hard to close.

  18. WikiLeaks: How the Clinton’s free private jet scam works

    Ira Magaziner, the CEO of the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI), asked former President Bill Clinton to thank Morocco’s King Mohammed VI for “offering his plane to the conference in Ethiopia.”

    “CHAI would like to request that President Clinton call Sheik Mohammed to thank him for offering his plane to the conference in Ethiopia,” Magaziner gushed in a November 22, 2011 email released by WikiLeaks.

    Clinton frequently has expected free, luxurious private jet travel during his post-presidential life. Clinton, his wife, and daughter have artfully secured free air travel and luxurious accommodations since they left the White House. It’s an effective way to accept gifts of great value without declaring them for the Clinton Foundation.

    “It’s highly illegal and it’s likely that the owners of these aircraft took tax deductions as a gift to the Clinton Foundation,” Charles Ortel, a Wall Street analyst and critic of the Clinton Foundation, told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

    In the Moroccan case, Clinton was able to fly for free, jetting 3,367 miles from Rabat, Morocco, to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on the King’s specially equipped 747-400 jumbo jet.

    Not including the flight, King Mohammed has donated at least $28 million to the Clinton Foundation.

    Clinton was traveling to attend a conference organized by Sheikh Mohammed Hussein Al-Amoudi, an Ethiopian-Saudi billionaire who is the second wealthiest man in Saudi Arabia. The sheikh has donated up to $10 million to the Clinton Foundation.

  19. Hillary, Obama – who’s throwing whom under the bus?
    By J.E. Dyer November 1, 2016

    This one isn’t necessarily easy to figure out. See what you think.

    After FBI Director James Comey came out last week with the letter to Congress, announcing that the FBI would be continuing the Hillary email investigation with a new trove of 650,000 records found on Anthony Weiner’s and Huma Abedin’s devices, Hillary and her allies began excoriating Comey.

    Democrats, we were told, had “declared open season” on Comey.

    The mainstream media jumped smartly on board to discredit him.

    Eric Holder weighed in gravely against Comey:

    • Interesting speculation, that might be true. It ignores the rebellion at the FBI and how the agents might not be willing to let Obama off the hook but this could be a desperation move on Obama’s part knowing that this is his best chance to avoid being drawn into Hillarys mess.

  20. Italians Throw Party to Welcome Migrants in Milan (abcnews, Nov 1, 2016)

    “More than 1,000 Italians on Tuesday threw a block party featuring a pasta lunch, a brass band and crafts to welcome some 80 migrants to their Milan neighborhood — a far cry from the protests against the move seen the previous evening and rising anti-migrant sentiment appearing throughout the country in recent times.

    Shouts of welcome went up as a small contingent of about 30 migrants came out of a recently repurposed army barracks for what was billed as the first welcome party of its kind in Italy.

    “I feel happy,” said 22-year-old Zakaria Abdellahi from Ethiopia, who arrived in Italy three months ago with his wife. “I feel like I am famous. Everywhere I look, they are taking pictures. I think I am Obama.”

    The previous night the mood at the barracks had been less welcoming. About 200 people protested, carrying banners that read “Italians first.” Migrants peeked uneasily from the barracks’ windows overlooking the piazza, before closing the shade.

    It was the third such protest in recent days, with organizers pledging more. Tensions over migrants have been rising in Italy amid persistent arrivals creating a crunch in the housing system in the months since Rome has stepped up its border controls under pressure from European neighbors.

    Organizers of Tuesday’s welcome event said that politicians on the right have been using the migrant crisis to stir up anti-migrant sentiment, leveraging Italy’s economic stagnation to create uncertainty and fear. They decided on the welcome party after the city’s plans to open the barracks to migrants became a political flashpoint, hoping that familiarity with the newcomers would help ease residents’ reservations…”

  21. N Y T – Orlando Gunman’s Wife Breaks Silence: ‘I Was Unaware’

    WASHINGTON — Things finally seemed to be going better for Noor Salman and her husband, Omar Mateen. He had just been accepted into a police training program and had showered her with jewelry to celebrate. He had given her permission to visit her family in California and handed her spending money for the trip. And he had stopped hitting her.

    So when Mr. Mateen told her that he would not be home for dinner the afternoon of June 11, she asked him not to go. It was Saturday — and she hoped it would be a family night. But he told her he had to see a friend, kissing her and hugging their 3-year-old son as he left.

    Mr. Mateen never returned home. Instead, he drove two hours from the family’s home in Fort Pierce, Fla., to a nightclub in Orlando, where he killed 49 people and wounded dozens more before the police fatally shot him, ending one of the worst terrorist attacks in the United States since 2001.

    Ms. Salman, whose parents immigrated to the United States from the West Bank in 1985, was immediately a person of interest. F.B.I. agents questioned her for hours, eliciting from her that she had been with her husband when he bought ammunition and scouted the club. Some agents came to believe that she was not being truthful.

    But in an interview, the first she has given, Ms. Salman denied any involvement in the attack or any knowledge of what her husband was going to do. She described him as someone who angered easily, beat her often, and lived his life in secret.

    “I was unaware of everything,” she said. “I don’t condone what he has done. I am very sorry for what has happened. He has hurt a lot of people.”

    Her husband’s crime, Ms. Salman said, has left her shattered and afraid. She lives in fear of turning on the television and hearing Mr. Mateen’s name. She often can’t get out of bed and depends on family members to take care of her son. She has moved three times since the attack, hoping to avoid the media, and asked that her current location not be disclosed.

    And she lives in legal limbo, with prosecutors weighing charges that could include lying to the F.B.I. Her lawyers, Linda Moreno and Charles Swift, say their client did nothing wrong. They declined to let Ms. Salman, 30, talk about her discussions with the F.B.I., but Mr. Swift said his client had told investigators “everything she knew to the best of her ability.”

    In the interview, Ms. Salman said she had a reason for talking publicly now: “I just want people to know that I am human. I am a mother.”

    She first met Mr. Mateen in 2011 on an internet dating site called Arab Lounge. She was smitten almost immediately. While he was religious and she was not, it was not an issue. “I thought he was the whole package,” she recalled.

    She also thought she was getting a second shot at happiness.

    Ms. Salman grew up in Rodeo, Calif., one of four daughters of a small-business man. She was a poor student in high school, but managed to earn an associate degree in medical administration at a local college. Her dream was to fall in love, but the arranged marriage in 2006 with a man she met on a trip to her father’s hometown did not work out.

    Mr. Mateen, the son of Afghan immigrants, had also been married before. He never told Ms. Salman that his first wife left him after he began beating her.

    They were engaged shortly after meeting online and married soon afterward. Wedding photographs show a happy couple, eating cake and holding hands. In one photo, Mr. Mateen is dancing awkwardly. Another depicts them covered with a shawl and looking into a mirror as a married couple for the first time, an Afghan tradition.

    After they married, the couple moved to Fort Pierce and into a two-bedroom condominium that Mr. Mateen’s mother owned. Ms. Salman quickly became pregnant. Her husband worked nights as a security guard, and she cooked and did the laundry.

    “He was a gentle spirit,” she said.

    But Mr. Mateen’s behavior changed abruptly about six months into the marriage. Once, after the couple went shopping for baby clothes while when she was pregnant, Mr. Mateen flew into a rage and punched his wife’s shoulder hard enough that it bruised, she said. Afterward they drove to his parents’ house, and before they went inside, he warned her: “Wipe your eyes. This stays between us or it’s going to get worse.”

    When he became angry, he would start biting his lips and clenching his fists. In public, he also had a code word he used if she was doing something he didn’t like. He would call her “shar.” That was short for sharmuta — slut or whore, in Arabic.

    He would also pull her hair, something she has since learned he also did to his first wife. He choked her and threatened to kill her. He never said he was sorry. “He had no remorse,” she said.

    But Ms. Salman said she was afraid to end the marriage. If she left, Mr. Mateen taunted her, he would get custody of their son. “You have no proof I hit you,” he said. “No job.”

    Warning Signs

    Warning signs of radicalization can seem obvious in hindsight. Ms. Salman knew her husband watched jihadist videos, but she did not think much of it because the F.B.I. seemed to have cleared him, she said.

    Agents had investigated Mr. Mateen in 2013 after he told work colleagues he was a member of Hezbollah, had family ties to Al Qaeda and wanted to die as a martyr. Ten months later, the F.B.I. closed the case. That same year, they questioned him again in connection with another terrorism investigation. So when Mr. Mateen told his wife to mind her own business about the videos, she did.

    “The F.B.I. let him go,” she said.

    Jacquelyn Campbell, a nurse and professor at Johns Hopkins University who has received funding from the Justice Department for research on domestic violence, evaluated Ms. Salman’s case at the request of her lawyers. Ms. Salman, she said, was in extreme danger from her husband. “She would be totally oblivious to clues that he is getting radicalized or planning anything,” Ms. Campbell said.

    Ms. Salman was too busy trying to survive.

    Mia Bloom, a professor at Georgia State University who has studied the role of women and children in terrorist groups, is more skeptical. She said there had been instances in which terrorists such as Mr. Mateen had managed to keep quiet about their plans. But she pointed to a recent study of 119 lone-actor terrorists in Europe and the United States. Researchers found that in about 64 percent of the cases, family members and friends had been aware of the individual’s intent to commit terrorism.

    “It’s possible she didn’t know because he was not confiding in her, but she does have every incentive in the world to retell this story as a different kind of victim,” Ms. Bloom said. “I am not trying to minimize the experience she had in a domestic abusive relationship, but it doesn’t give her a free pass as a bystander to not come forward.”

    Suspicions about what Ms. Salman might have known focus on several trips she took with her husband.

    In April 2015, Mr. Mateen took his wife and son to Disney World. Law enforcement officials suspect that Mr. Mateen went there to see if it would be a good target and hinted at his intentions to conduct an attack. Ms. Salman’s lawyer would not let her discuss what Mr. Mateen said at the amusement park.

    Ms. Salman also went with her husband to buy ammunition at Walmart. She did not think this was suspicious, she said. Her husband was a security guard and regularly visited the shooting range. Ammunition was cheaper at Walmart than at the range, she said.

    Similarly, when she and her son accompanied him to Orlando in the months before the shooting, she said she had no idea he was checking out Pulse, the nightclub he eventually attacked. He told her, “Let’s go to Orlando for a drive,” she recalled.

    The F.B.I. is still sorting out these accounts.
    The Last Night

    In the last weeks of Mr. Mateen’s life, Ms. Salman said, her husband started being kind again. She believed she was being rewarded for her silence.

    On the day of the attack, Mr. Mateen came home from work around 3 p.m. He told Ms. Salman about the trip to California to visit her mother for the first time in years. He gave her $500 for the trip, and drove her and their son to McDonald’s. They stopped at a bank, where Mr. Mateen withdrew another $500 for his wife. Then he left.

    At home that night, Ms. Salman filled out a Father’s Day Card she had bought for her husband and went to bed. At about 4 a.m., Mr. Mateen’s mother called, worried and looking for him. Ms. Salman tried calling him on his cellphone but got no answer.

    Finally he sent her a text message: Did you see what happened? She texted back that she had not.

    “I love you babe,” he responded, the last she heard from him.

    Later that morning, she learned from the F.B.I. that her husband had died in a shootout after carrying out a mass murder. Months later, recalling that day, she began to cry.

    “How can someone be capable of that?” she said.

    PA Democrats ask judge to bar Trump’s polling place observers
    Philadelphia Inquirer November 1, 2016 at 11:45 am 3 Lead Stories, News


    The Pennsylvania Democratic Party has sued Donald Trump and an informal adviser to his presidential campaign for their plans to position volunteer observers at polling places on Election Day.

    The federal lawsuit, filed Sunday in Philadelphia, accuses Trump’s campaign and Roger Stone Jr., a longtime national political adviser, of “conspiring to threaten, intimidate, and thereby prevent minority voters in urban neighborhoods from voting in the 2016 election.”

    The lawsuit, which loops in the Republican Party of Pennsylvania, is similar to lawsuits filed Sunday by the state Democratic parties in Arizona, Ohio, and Nevada against Trump, Stone, and the state Republican parties there.

    Stone, who has been using the Super PAC Stop The Steal, to sign up volunteers, said in an emailed statement that he is “honored but the lawsuit is without merit.”

    Stone said his group is not working with Trump or the Republican Party in its effort to conduct exit polls outside 7,000 polling places with a history of “one-party rule and past reports of irregularities.”

    “We seek only to determine if the election is honestly and fairly conducted and to provide an evidentiary basis for a challenge to the election if that is not the case,” Stone said. “I assume the purpose of this bogus lawsuit is to distract from the voter-fraud the Democrats have traditionally engaged in.”

  23. The Anti-Police Epidemic
    The disease gets worse.

    The war on law enforcement is epidemic. Every aspect of culture has been infected. The anti-police disease is highly contagious and rapidly spreading on social media, in memes, in movements, in popular fast food restaurants, at football games, on campuses, in media and in every aspect of American culture.

    An epidemic is defined as the rapid spread of infectious disease to a large number of people in a given population within a short period of time. Colin Kaepernick is the Typhoid Mary of the anti-police epidemic. Kaepernick refuses to stand while the U.S. national anthem is being performed at the start of NFL games as a protest against alleged racial injustice and police brutality. On Sept. 1 Kaepernick chose to kneel on one knee as his protest gesture instead of just sitting on the bench. His explanation for his decision to switch is that it was an attempt to show more respect to former and current U.S. military members. As if kneeling is somehow symbolically less offensive than sitting. He misinterpreted the meaning of the military expression, ‘take a knee’ which occurs when troops take a pause before continuing their mission. Similar to ‘Hands Up Don’t Shoot’ the anti-police gesture has been imbued with a trendy righteousness regardless of its original meaning. The media reverently refers to Kaepernick’s protest as ‘Taking a Knee’ as if it is some kind of sacred act. There are no headlines that read ‘Kaepernick Disses the Flag’ or ‘Kaepernick Takes a Crap on his Country’. Just in case his gesture didn’t send a clear enough message, Kaepernick also uses clothing to symbolize his anti-police sympathies. He has worn everything from t-shirts honoring the militant Black Panther Party to socks that depict police as pigs. In addition to numerous other crimes the Black Panther Party was responsible for the murder of at least 15 officers and originated the expression ‘Off the Pigs’ meaning murder police.

    Like the typhoid infected cook Mary Mallon, Kaepernick is rapidly spreading the anti-police pat

  25. Obama: Don’t Destroy the Peace Process by Turning it Over to the U.N.

    by Alan M. Dershowitz

    The Obama Administration is sending strong signals that once the election is over it may make a major push to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict at the United Nations. Despite repeated invitations by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to Palestinian Authority President Abbas to meet without preconditions, the stalemate persists. Some blame it on Palestinian unwillingness to recognize Israel as the nation state of the Jewish People and to compromise to the so-called “right of return.” Others — including the current U.S. Administration — lay the blame largely at the feet of the Netanyahu government for continuing to build in the West Bank, most recently approval of between 98 and 300 new homes in Shiloh. Whatever the reasons – and they are complex and multifaceted — President Obama should resist any temptation, during his final weeks in office, to change longstanding American policy — that only direct negotiations between the parties will achieve a lasting peace.

    In particular, Obama should veto an expected French resolution in the Security Council establishing an international peace conference under the auspices of the U.N. The general parameters of the French resolution would likely call for:

  26. Palestinians: Back into Bed with Hamas

    This has become predictable. Given two minutes of breath, Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas resorts to the old tactic of courting Hamas as a way of hiding from the disaffection of his own Fatah faction. The overtures towards Hamas are a smokescreen for what many Palestinians are beginning to perceive as the beginning of a revolt against Abbas.

    Last week, Abbas held a surprise meeting in Qatar with Hamas leaders Ismail Haniyeh and Khaled Mashaal. The meeting reportedly considered ways of ending the longstanding dispute between Fatah and Hamas and achieving “national reconciliation.”

    Abbas aides said the meeting also dealt with the possibility of forming a Palestinian “national unity” government and holding long-overdue presidential, parliamentary and municipal elections in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

    The unexpected meeting was held under the auspices of the rulers of Qatar, a country that has long been the Number One sponsor of the Muslim Brotherhood organization, of which Hamas is an offshoot.

    Two important Jew have lost their lives lately: Shimon Peres, the ninth President of Israel, and Ishak Alaton, a Jewish businessman from Turkey.

    Upon receiving the news of the deaths of these two men, many Turks rushed to Twitter proudly and openly to show off their hatred of Jews, according to the Turkish news site, Avlaremoz, which covers Jewish affairs.

    Some of the Tweets posted after Peres’s death on September 28 included:

  28. Feel Safe? Here Are 3 Times Hillary Apparently Took Bribes From Terror Funders

    Despite the old and new scandals swirling around her, Hillary Clinton still has a better chance of being elected president of the United States next week than anyone else. Once installed in the Oval Office, she is likely to govern in the same way she has behaved during three decades of public service.

    Regarding the global jihad threat, that could herald nothing less than national and global catastrophe.

    This “Most Damaging Wikileaks” compilation contains numerous disturbing revelations. On August 17, 2014, Clinton wrote to her campaign chairman John Podesta to say:

    [T]he governments of Qatar and Saudi Arabia … are providing clandestine financial and logistic support to ISIL and other radical Sunni groups in the region.

    The Islamic State is not the only questionable recipient of Saudi and Qatari largesse, according to the Daily Caller:

    Qatar has given between $1 million and $5 million to the Clinton Foundation and Saudi Arabia has donated upwards of $25 million dollars to the Foundation.

    • Not once her joyrides on the Lolita express become more publicly known. And a loosely connected group from the US intelligence circles has announced today that they are staging an electronic counter coup against Clinton – so the fireworks should be fun to watch.


    The government watchdog group Judicial Watch obtained the documents as part of its ongoing Freedom of Information Act lawsuit that seeks information about Clinton aide Bryan Pagliano’s involvement with the private server system. The documents were part of the more than 15,000 emails discovered by the FBI during its investigation into Clinton’s use of private email server.

    The documents show between November 27, 2010 to November 29, 2010, Pagliano sent ten emails to Bill Clinton aide Justin Cooper warning about apparent hacking attempts on the private server.
