    • Shock is used to imprint a mental-suggestion through fear. It activates the brain-stem to whatever terror-control is then presented.

      An infant’s mind is still forming. We may discover decades later, that the nurseries of work-abandoned children were the very places where sexual-exposure abuse, naughty-step isolation and enforced-sharing took place. Where lovelessness drew them into identifying as pseudosexuals.

      Millenialism. A yet undiagnosed and untreated mental health condition they don’t have, (yet would be preferably advantageous if they did), but they don’t, and we can’t Speak It’s Name, in the highest seats of office.

      Mating Calls: “Hey, you didn’t make that!” “Why has ze have more holidays than I do?” “The rich-poor gap, make the indolent richer” “It’s no one’s business what goes on in the Children’s Homes.” “Make Love Not Poor” “What’s cis-gender?”

  1. Asnières: hot times at Freycinet
    This Friday evening, the tension has risen a notch after the accident that involved Wednesday a youngster and a car of the municipal police.

    This Friday, in the early evening, groups of young people have raised the temperature in the district of Freycinet, in Asnieres. Several garbage containers were burned. Quickly on the spot, the forces of the order repelled the troublemakers. After a calm return around 8 pm, large numbers of police were kept on site to secure the neighborhood. “Young people have no relay to express their anger, deplores Zouhair Ech Chetouani, associative leader of Hauts d’Asnières. This situation is largely preventable. ”
    Diametrically opposed versions
    These events occur after a youth was hit, by a vehicle of the municipal police, on the night of Wednesday to Thursday. The crew was chasing after a driver of scooter . He had refused to let himself be checked and had fled to his neighborhood. It was then that a small group gathered on rue des Freycinet to prevent the police from intervening. One of them, stopped in front of the car. Despite a brutal braking, the vehicle hit him. Hospitalized for the night, after the officers gave her first aid, the victim suffered a “mild head injury,” according to a police source.
    But, this official version is strongly contested by the inhabitants of the district. According to them, the young man “never tried to prevent the car from moving forward”. He had only gone on a few errands and had been chatting “for over an hour” with a friend at the scene of the accident. Before the police car hit him. Contacted, the town hall reps did not wish to comment

  2. Parents Beware — Disney Just Did The Unthinkable

    Disney used to be a brand parents could trust. When a movie or TV show had the Disney stamp of approval, parents could rest easy knowing their children were watching morally and family-friendly programming.

    Now, nothing could be further from the truth.

    And Disney’s latest stunt pushed the line even further and crossed over into a dangerous territory every parent must be made aware of.

    Their latest cartoon show actually introduced a boy princess, and had lines such as “he can be a princess if he wants to.”

    This gender confusion further adds to the chaos young children are unfairly left to sort out.

    • I saw a picture of the young cartoon aberrant. I had to smile because the cartoonist was forced to use standard male face treatments to make it obvious that this was a boy dressed up like a princess. All the talent at Disney today is aberrant talent.

  3. FBI investigating people animated by ‘Antifa ideology’

    Federal domestic terrorism investigators are probing “a number of” people animated by “kind of an Antifa ideology,” FBI Director Christopher Wray told lawmakers Thursday.

    “We do have a very active domestic terrorism program,” Wray told the House Homeland Security Committee. “And while we’re not investigating Antifa as Antifa — that’s an ideology and we don’t investigate ideologies — we are investigating a number of what we would call anarchist-extremist investigations where we have properly predicated subjects of people who are motivated to commit violent criminal activity on kind of an Antifa ideology.”

  4. Clinton Suggests Lauer Sex Scandal Is ‘Karma’ for His Tough Questioning of Her During 2016 Campaign

    Hillary Clinton thinks that former NBC host Matt Lauer’s demise is “karma” for how he questioned her about her private email server during the 2016 presidential campaign.

    Clinton was in Philadelphia on Thursday promoting her campaign memoir, What Happened, when she was asked about Lauer being fired this week over allegations of sexual misconduct, the Philly Voice reported. Lauer faced a storm of criticism last year when several journalists and commentators deemed his questioning of Clinton at a candidate forum unfair and even sexist.

    “Every day I believe more in karma,” Clinton said of Lauer.

    She went on to describe how “men who shaped the narrative” of the campaign harmed her but are now under fire for sexual harassment, echoing how her supporters have tied Lauer’s alleged misconduct to his treatment of Clinton. She also repeated her past arguments about the election, primarily blaming a host of outside factors for her defeat.

    • HA! HA! HA! Then her pay back should be the most epic slap down of the last 2 centuries and brother does she have it coming!

      • HA! HA! HA! Then her pay back should be the most epic slap down of the last 2 centuries and brother does she have it coming!

        In yet one more obscenely shared trait, Liberals and Muslims continue to exhibit total immunity to any perception of irony.

        Just like Islam, the Clinton Crime Family is headed (at top speed) straight towards a solid brick wall.

        It is impossible to adequately express the relish with which I anticipate that impact (in BOTH cases).

  5. Germany’s Intel Worries About Islamist Mobilization in the Balkans

    Bosnia-Herzegovina, Europe’s Muslim-majority state becomes hotbed for Islamist recruitment

    German Intelligence Agency (BND) is concerned about the Islamist ideology increasing its influence in the Balkan region, German newspapers report. The main focus of Germany’s foreign intelligence agency is the Muslim-majority country of Bosnia-Herzegovina. The agency has been alarmed by massive investments being made by Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries in the religious and Islamist infrastructure of the country.

    The investments made by Arab patrons are paying off handsomely. Bosnia-Herzegovina has the highest percentage of ISIS recruits compared to any other European country, German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung confirmed. An estimated 200 Bosnians have left the country to fight for the Islamic State, a German broadcaster reported. In recent months, Bosnian Police have made several arrests and recovered large amounts of explosives and military hardware in raids across the country.

    Carved out of the Communist Republic of Yugoslavia in 1992, the country of Bosnia-Herzegovina became the first Muslim-majority state of the modern Europe. Nearly 16 years later, Kosovo would declare independence from Serbia, emerging as Europe’s second Muslim-majority state. Unsurprisingly, both Bosnia-Herzegovina and Kosovo are today hotbeds for Jihadi recruitment. In early 1990s, hundreds of ‘mujahedeen’ fighters came from abroad to bolster the ranks of Bosnian Muslims forces battling the Orthodox Serbs and Catholic Croats. Today, Bosnian Muslims are returning the favor by exporting Jihad abroad.

      • The situtation in the Balkans is a major touch point that may touch the big WWIII fighting in Europe, The Serbs and the Croats allied with Eastern Europe v the Bosnians and Albanians allied with Turkey and what is left of the EU (I expect the EU to be busy fighting many civil wars so they won’t contribute much until the civil wars are settled). Round 1 in the Balkens was the fighting in the 90s, Round 2 is about to start with no one knowing how many rounds are in this bout.

  6. “I am not American,” said the Islamist; “I am Muslim”

    by Majid Rafizadeh
    December 2, 2017 at 5:00 am

    Several years ago, when first in the United States on a teaching scholarship, one issue leapt out. A man asked an innocent enough question: Where I was from? I told him; then, as a courtesy, asked him the same question.

    “I am a Muslim,” he smiled.

    Thinking that perhaps he had not understood the question — he sounded American or English — I asked if he was from the United States.

    “I am not American,” he said again; “I am a Muslim.”

    I subsequently learned that he was an Islamist, a preacher of strict religious teachings, and that many of the people to whom he preached held the same views.

    In Iran and Syria, where I was born and raised, I had never before heard this answer.

    • With out assimilation and identification as an American, a Canadian, a Brit etc. there is no possibility of living peacefully with the non assimilated. Recognizing that this is happening and knowing that a large percentage of the new arrivals are going to resist assimilation is not Islamophobia, it is drawing a logical conclusion from the available evidence. The Invaders and our home grown traitors don’t want us to craw logical conclusions based on evidence thus the work hard to prevent the schools teaching critical thought.

      • …there is no possibility of living peacefully with the non assimilated.

        End of story. Full stop.

        Far too many people continue to delude themselves about how, “diversity is our strength” [puke]. When, in reality, the original “melting pot” was that which gave America its greatest asset, a genuinely assimilating population.

        Thank you, Richard. This sort of crap makes me vomit.

    • “I am not American,” he said again; “I am a Muslim.”

      At some future date, these are the words that will see such non-assimilating slimebags sling-shotted out of the USA with near-warp velocity.

      All of which cannot happen too soon.

  7. Pope’s High-Risk Visit to South Asia: Opposition in Catholic Hierarchy

    by Lawrence A. Franklin
    December 1, 2017 at 2:06 pm

    The Pope’s trip to Myanmar (Burma) and Bangladesh is occurring against a backdrop of political turmoil and criticism by some Vatican watchers. The visit may also present personal danger for the Holy Father. Although no one, of course, condones violence and mass expulsion, there has been been indignation, expressed by the spokesperson for Myanmar’s Bishop Conference, as to the Pope’s concern for the human rights of Muslims while failing to comment on the regime’s persecution of Christian minorities in Myanmar.[1]

    “We are afraid that the pope does not have sufficiently accurate information, and is releasing statements that do not reflect reality.” — Catholic Bishop Raymond Sumlut Gam of Myanmar’s Bhamo Diocese, suggesting that the Pope is misinformed about the nuances of the Rohingya issue.

  8. Interpol reviewing 40,000 wanted notices for political abuse (abcnews, Dec 2, 2017)

    “Interpol is examining tens of thousands of wanted person notices submitted by member countries to determine if they are politically motivated, according to a confidential memo obtained Friday by The Associated Press.

    Several recent cases, including the detention of a Turkish-German writer in Spain at Turkey’s behest, have raised concerns about possible misuse of so-called “Red Notices” that the international police agency distributes on behalf of its members to further arrests of fugitives.

    The confidential memo compiled by European security officials detailed a Nov. 20 meeting between European Union diplomats and Interpol representatives, who said they were examining up to 40,000 Red Notices.

    The memo quotes representatives from the law enforcement agency based in France saying the review would take “some time” and welcoming support from member states.

    Interpol declined to confirm the number of wanted person notices under review, but said in a statement that new procedures were put in place last year to prevent the communiques from being issued to persecute dissidents…”

  9. Official: Muslim rhetoric drives wedge between US-Indonesia (abcnews, Dec 2, 2017)

    “A top Indonesian Cabinet minister said that the Trump administration’s hostile rhetoric toward Islam has left many in the world’s most populous Muslim nation feeling that a wedge has been driven between the U.S. and Indonesia.

    Luhut Pandjaitan said in a column written for Singapore’s Straits Times newspaper that the negative sentiment felt in Indonesia will only disappear when it’s clear the U.S. has not abandoned its openness to all faiths.

    “Many Indonesians were dismayed by the Trump administration’s hostile rhetoric and intemperate policy stance towards the Muslims of the world,” he said. “Given that Indonesia is home to the largest number of them, there was a feeling that a wedge was being driven between America and Indonesia.”

    President Donald Trump’s travel ban directed at several majority Muslim nations did not include Indonesia but nevertheless drew criticism from Indonesians…”

  10. Trump turns to US Supreme Court in immigrant document fight (abcnews, Dec 2, 2017)

    “The Trump administration asked the U.S. Supreme Court on Friday to block a federal judge’s order requiring it to disclose all emails, letters and other documents it considered in its decision to end a program protecting young immigrants from deportation.

    Attorneys for the U.S. Department of Justice said the order by U.S. District Court Judge William Alsup in San Francisco was too broad and would require the administration to turn over protected and nonpublic documents.

    More than a dozen states, the University of California and several immigrants are suing the administration over its decision to end the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA.

    The cases have been mired in a dispute over documents sought by plaintiffs as they try to substantiate their claims against the administration.

    The lawsuit by the states says the Trump administration’s decision to rescind the program was motivated by anti-Mexican bias.

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions has said President Barack Obama’s decision to implement DACA was an unconstitutional exercise of his authority.

    A federal appeals court last month upheld Alsup’s order, which came after the administration turned over 256 pages of documents.

    The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in a 2-1 decision said all of those documents were available on the internet.

    “Put bluntly, the notion that the head of a United States agency would decide to terminate a program giving legal protections to roughly 800,000 people based solely on 256 pages of publicly available documents is not credible,” Judges Kim Wardlaw and Ronald Gould wrote.

    In a dissenting opinion, 9th Circuit Judge Paul Watford said the desire for greater insight into how the administration arrived at its decision was not enough to demand additional documents.”

  11. Clashes continue between rival factions in Yemen’s capital (abcnews, Dec 2, 2017)

    “Violent clashes between rival factions in Yemen’s rebel-held capital continued Saturday for the fourth straight day as forces loyal to a former president and Iran-backed Shiite rebels known as Houthis faced off in the streets of Sanaa, signaling disintegration in the rebel alliance at war with a Saudi-led coalition for nearly three years.

    Fighting since Wednesday intensified, according to accounts of local residents who said that loud explosions were heard overnight across the city and into Saturday morning. Mediation efforts by tribal elders and officials over the past few days have come to no avail.

    “It’s been like a street war,” they said adding that ambulances have been ferrying the wounded to hospitals. They spoke on condition of anonymity, fearing reprisals. There has been no official word on casualties but the International Committee of the Red Cross said that dozens were killed and hundreds were wounded in the fighting…”

  12. 13 killed in suicide bombing at northeastern Nigeria market (abcnews, Dec 2, 2017)

    “A female suicide bomber pretending to wait in line for food handouts detonated her explosives Saturday, killing at least 13 people at a crowded market in northeastern Nigeria, authorities said.

    A second female bomber killed herself and wounded many others, according to witnesses in the town of Biu, about 185 kilometers (115 miles) from the Borno state capital, Maiduguri.

    “The first bomber pretended to be on the queue as one of the beneficiaries waiting for her turn to receive food,” said Mohammed Maliya, who was part of the rescue effort. “She was so relaxed and was even eating a banana before she detonated.”

    The incident came less than two weeks after more than 50 people were killed in a suicide bombing at a mosque in Mubi, 170 kilometers (105 miles) east of Biu…”

  13. Militants Shell Christian Cathedral in Syrian Capital of Damascus – Reports (sputniknews, Dec 2, 2017)

    “The Syrian military has reportedly responded to the attack by striking areas from where the shells were fired in the Damascus suburb of East Ghouta, eliminating fire launchers and killing some militants.

    At least three people were injured in the shelling in Damascus, which is a violation of the agreement on de-escalation in the suburb of the capital, East Ghouta, SANA reported, citing the local police sources.

    The militants conducted mortar shelling Damascus, including the territory of the Holy Virgin Mary Cathedral in the Christian quarter, causing casualties and material damages, the source added…”

  14. Former SDF Spokesman Reveals US Created Syrian Rebel Group as a ‘Cover’ (sputniknews, Dec 2, 2017)

    “The revelations come amid repeated calls on Washington by senior Turkish officials, insisting on the cessation of weapons deliveries to the Syrian Kurds, which eventually resulted in the US promise to halt arms supplies to the force fighting against Daesh.

    The former spokesperson of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), Talal Silo, who previously fled to Turkey, told the Anadolu news agency on Saturday that the rebel group was allegedly created by the US as a cover to provide weapons to the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) that is thought to be affiliated with the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) listed as a terrorist organization by Ankara.

    “It is only a name. Nothing else. We take everything, including our salaries, from YPG. The U.S. authorities wanted to give arms to Kurds. The announcement of SDF’s establishment was only a drama. The US gave the leadership to the Kurds and PKK,” Silo told the agency.

    According to him, the SDF was just signing documents to receive arms, but all of them went to the PKK. At the same time, despite talks about fighting terrorism, the US was trafficking Daesh terrorists via an agreement reached with the regional PKK leader.

    He voiced the belief that all the ideas came from Special Presidential Envoy for the Global Coalition to Counter ISIL (Daesh) Brett McGurk, who allegedly wanted to establish a force, during the Raqqa operation, in the name of the Arab Coalition.

    Thus, according to Silo, the coalition provided huge amounts of arms, but only a small part of them went to the Arabs, Turkmens and Assyrians, with all the schemes having been created to “cover that these arms were actually delivered to the PKK. But we were sure that these advanced arms were going to PKK and YPG.”

    The US didn’t care where the arms would go and when the YPG claimed that it was “out of arms,” the US would send a new delivery of weapons.

    Though, during the Barack Obama presidency the support was limited, the situation dramatically changed, when Donald Trump became president as even armored vehicle started to come to the region, Silo said.

    According to the ex-spokesman, the SDF has some 50,000 militants including both men and women, with 70 percent of them belonging to the YPG and the YPJ (the female wing of the organization).

    The revelations come amid repeated calls on Washington by senior Turkish officials, insisting on the cessation of weapons deliveries to Kurds.

    Last week, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu announced that Donald Trump had reassured his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan that he had ordered to cease supplies of the US armaments to Kurds.

    Following the statement, the White House confirmed the information, saying that the move was “consistent with our previous policy.”

    Most recently, Erdogan’s spokesman Ibrahim Kalin urged Washington to take back weapons delivered to the Syrian Kurds.”

  15. Migrant Starts Fire in Asylum Home Because He Was ‘Frustrated’ (breitbart,Dec 2, 2017)

    “A Lebanese asylum seeker found guilty of attempting to burn down his asylum home said he did so out of frustration at not being given a job.

    A court heard that 26-year-old Hussein F. had come to Germany two years ago from Dubai, where he had lived for six years, and paid £11,000 ($15,000) for a Schengen area visa

    He was placed in an asylum home in Hannover where, on June 12th, he set his mattress on fire. His lawyer Tanja Brettschneider claimed the asylum seeker has snapped because he was “looking for a better life, but was not allowed to work”, German tabloid Bild reports.

    The 26-year-old even gave warning to authorities of his plans in advance when he marched down to the city hall and demanded his own accommodation saying that otherwise, he would set the asylum home on fire.

    It took 66 firemen, 14 police officers, and six paramedics two full hours to put out the blaze which caused £4,610 of damages. No one was injured in the fire.

    The judge in the case found the asylum seeker guilty and handed down a suspended two-year sentence and 250 hours of community service. The judge warned that the sentence could have been far greater if anyone had been injured as the asylum seeker would have been charged with attempted murder…”

  16. Iraqi Gang Accused of Smuggling 40 Migrants a Day to UK Arrested (breitbart, Dec 2, 2017)

    “French police have disrupted an Iraqi gang suspected of trafficking around 40 migrants a day to Calais and into Britain, with three arrests made and vehicles seized.

    The gang is thought to have smuggled the illegal migrants in refrigerated lorries, which are sealed and are less likely to be opened for checks.

    Three Iraqi men, aged 30, 36, and 38, were arrested Angoulême, southwest France, according to Charente Libre. A fourth man was placed under judicial control and six vehicles were seized, including a Volkswagen Passat registered in the UK.

    In August, French police discovered 10 migrants, including five children, in a refrigerated lorry on the A63 motorway 580 miles from Calais.

    The illegal migrants had been transferred to the region when the infamous Jungle migrant camp in Calais was evacuated last autumn.

    Two more refrigerated lorries carrying migrants to the UK illegally were discovered in the region shortly afterwards…”

  17. Germany: Water cannons blast anti-AfD protesters in freezing-cold Hannover

    Several people were injured after a water cannon was turned on protesters demonstrating against the Alternative for Germany (AfD) Federal Party Congress in Hannover on Saturday, in freezing temperatures.

    The water cannon was deployed while the protesters were performing a sit-in near the congress venue, causing a delay of its start.

    Some 600 members of the AfD are expected to participate in the party assembly at the Hannover Congress Centre.

  18. Channel 4 – The migrants living in dire conditions in Serbia

    It was a crisis that upended a continent. In 2015, more than a million refugees and migrants made their way to Europe fleeing war, persecution and economic hardship. Then in 2016, the EU implemented a deal to stem the numbers of people coming in. Despite toughened controls, many people are still finding some way of reaching Europe in the hope of a better life. Filmmaker Marco Salustro travelled to Serbia, where he found hundreds of people living in dire conditions, still hopeful their journey won’t end there.

  19. GLOBE & MAIL – Globe editorial: Don’t exaggerate the threat from returning Islamic State fighters

    As you read this, a 22-year-old Montreal woman and her two baby daughters sit in war-torn Syria, awaiting word on a return to Canada.

    In the mother’s case, it will be a homecoming. Her children, though, were born under the flag of the so-called Islamic State “caliphate,” which the woman left Canada to join in 2014.

    Leaving aside obvious procedural problems – what to do with an Islamic State birth certificate? – this case, and others like it, raise difficult questions about how Canada should best handle presumably radicalized returnees.

    Our politicians have had a great deal of trouble answering these questions calmly and methodically, which is what the situation demands. On one side, you have a confused and occasionally contradictory response from the governing party in Ottawa. On the other, you have fearmongering and alarmism from Opposition MPs.

    The credibility of the Conservatives – the party that brought us the shameful “barbaric cultural practices hotline” – on the file is questionable, to say the least. But Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale hasn’t helped his own cause.

    For one thing, it took him far too long to outline specific policy options and put a firm figure on the number of Canadian citizens and residents who travelled overseas to fight with IS.

    According to a statement he released this week, 60 have returned to Canada, while another 190 remain abroad.

    The 60 figure is problematic. Amarnath Amarasingam, an extremism researcher who has interviewed Canadian jihadists and their families for years, says it doesn’t tell the whole story.

    The government calculations may include people who returned home, left again and were killed abroad, he says. And definitions of who is or isn’t a terrorist are not consistent across Canada’s various police and intelligence agencies.

    So what’s the real number of bona fide former Islamic State fighters in our midst? Mr. Amarasingam puts it, at most, at 10.

    “There’s no army of ISIS sleeper agents back in Canada waiting to kill you, who are in the meantime buying eggs at your local Sobey’s. And the government didn’t just let them walk back in,” he wrote on social media this week. “Let’s turn down the volume.”

    Surely it is not beyond the ken of well-funded institutions like CSIS, the RCMP, the Communications Security Establishment and local police to keep tabs on the clutch of former jihadists who present the greatest risk – even if their number turns out to be closer to 60 than 10.

    And what of the larger number of returning women who heeded the call to marry jihadists and bear children? It’s certainly true that an increasingly desperate IS leadership, doctrinally hostile to women and their rights, has developed a reliance on female suicide bombers.

    Some researchers, including a team at the U.S.-based International Centre for the Study of Violent Extremism, have concluded from interviews with the women of IS that the rapidly splintering group hopes they can be used as the vanguard of an eventual resurgence.

    But it’s not clear those women could easily be prosecuted in Canada, merely for associating with IS. University of Ottawa legal scholar Craig Forcese notes that membership in a terror organization is not automatically a crime; one must participate for the purpose of enhancing said group’s terrorist activity.

    Again, categories and terms matter. An extremist traveller is not exactly the same thing as a participant in terrorism.

    Then there’s the fact many of the people who joined IS in Syria and Iraq are now deeply disillusioned and, in some cases, scarred by their experience.

    Given the approach taken by countries such as France toward their citizens who joined the Islamic State – killing them while they’re still overseas – much has been made, particularly by the Tories, of Canada’s policy, which focuses on rehabilitation and deradicalization.

    Mr. Goodale counters that “enforcement is the priority” and that a suite of counter-terrorism measures are in use, including surveillance, intelligence gathering and sharing, criminal investigations, threat assessments, peace bonds, no-fly lists and the revocation of passports.

    As he puts it, “These are people who have travelled into a terrorist hotbed with the intention of participating in the depravity.” He adds, though, that “public safety and security demand a prevention strategy.”

    Despite criticism from the opposition, there is evidence from multiple studies and pilot projects, some done in Canada, that the softer approach – counselling and therapy, particularly for those who cannot be prosecuted – can be effective.

    It shouldn’t be necessary to say this, but deradicalization does not equal coddling.

    The fact is that the Montreal woman and her children are Canadian citizens, as are others who joined or became wrapped up in the world of jihad. They have obligations under Canadian law, but our country also has an obligation to them, which implies rehabilitation and reintegration. Let that be the starting point for a thoughtful, composed discussion.

    • Kill ’em. Or turn them away.
      Don’t risk one innocent life for these twisted left-overs. Maybe some hellhole in Southeast Asia can use cheap labor.

    • …what to do with an Islamic State birth certificate?

      Ummm … how about nuthin’?

      As in, what possibly useful contribution can this terrorist sack of broodmare sh!t have with regard to helping modern Western society succeed, much less anything to be had from her dubiously imprinted (and thoroughly contaminated) spawn?

      The notion that there should be even a slight degree of opportunity for constructive, or productive interaction with any of these wholly contaminated Islamic progeny exceeds all reasonable expectations.

  20. China Reportedly Sending Special Forces to Syria

    Chinese Special Forces will soon head to Syria to participate in countering terrorism of the Islamic East Turkistan Movement in the Damascus countryside, said the Hmeimim Russian Military Base in west Syria.

    The base posted on its Facebook page that the Chinese Ministry of Defense intends to send two units, known as the “Tigers of Siberia” and the “Night Tigers” from the Special Operations Forces, to aid Syrian government troops against the Islamic East Turkestan Movement that was sighted aiding terrorist groups in Syria, Asharq Al-Awsat reported.

    There are an estimated 2,500 Islamic East Turkistan Movement militants operating in Syria.

    Islamic East Turkistan Movement has been declared as a terrorist organization by the US State Department. The group is said to be allied with Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan, and therefore Beijing has constantly urged Islamabad to take action against it.

    According to Middle East Monitor, last week, during a meeting with Syrian Presidential Advisor Bouthaina Shaaban, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi praised the government’s efforts in tackling the fighters from the Islamic East Turkistan Movement.

    The Syrian government has also claimed that some 5,000 fighters of Uyghur origin, an ethnic Muslim minority that Chinese authorities regularly accuse of terrorism, have arrived in Syria, illegally passing through Southeast Asia and Turkey.

    This is not the first time Chinese troops have crossed into Syria; in 2015 the Syrian government permitted some 5,000 soldiers to enter its territory as allied forces and stationed them in the western region of Latakia. Chinese military advisors were also among the deployment, as well as naval and aerial assets.

    China is one of the five veto-wielding powers of the UN Security Council and, along with Russia, has used its power on more than one occasion to protect the interests of the Syrian government

    Russian support has given the government an upper hand in the six year-long civil war. More than half a million people are believed to have been killed in the devastating war since 2011.

    First Military Base

    The deployment of Chinese Special Forces comes as Beijing formally opened its first overseas military base in August in Djibouti in the Horn of Africa.

    According to Reuters, China began construction of a logistics base in Djibouti last year. It will be used to resupply navy ships taking part in peacekeeping and humanitarian missions off the coasts of Yemen and Somalia, in particular. There has been persistent speculation in diplomatic circles that China would build other such bases, in Pakistan for example, but the government has dismissed this.

    Chinese President Xi Jinping is overseeing an ambitious military modernization program, including developing capabilities for China’s forces to operate far from home.

  21. German Government Demands ‘Backdoor’ Access to Phones, Computer, Cars (breitbart, Dec 02, 2017)

    “The German government wants to force tech firms and car manufacturers to hand security services hidden digital access to private cars, computers, phones, and more.

    Germany’s Interior Minister Thomas de Maizière has drafted a proposal for the interior minister conference next week, in which he calls for “the legal duty for third parties to allow for secret surveillance”.

    According to Redaktions Netzwerk Deutschland (RND), the proposal would “dramatically extend” the state’s powers to spy on its citizens.

    It is becoming increasingly difficult for security services to break into digital devices over time, as technology advances and ever more sophisticated security systems to protect privacy are added to devices.

    Some electric keys for modern cars are now so advanced they can notify the owner when the vehicle is merely shaken.

    The interior minister wants to be able to disable this feature when the state thinks it is justified to interfere with a private car as part of a criminal investigation.

    However, the law could potentially go much further, critics warn.

    Mr. de Maizière also wants the security services to have the ability to spy on any device connected to the internet and is demanding tech companies give the state “backdoor” access to tablets and computers and smart TVs.

    “The Interior Minister’s plans sound like an Orwellian nightmare. Soon all flats in Germany will be equipped with devices which are potential wiretaps,” Konstantin von Notz, deputy faction leader of the Green Party, told Der Spiegel.

    “We need to think really hard about the fact that we are a country with two dictatorships in its recent history,” he added.

    “Do we want to live in a land where there is no privacy and where the state can interfere wherever it is technologically possible?” he asked.

    The draft law is “a frontal attack on the digital and physical security of all citizens”, Frank Rieger, spokesman for the Chaos Computer Club (CCC) told

    “Access to the IT system of a car means danger to life and limb – It is a literal kill switch,” he added.”

  22. The Left SCREECHES Against EPA’s Tightened Ethics

    Researcher on Science Advisory Board under Obama refuses to leave…

    (Quin Hillyer, Liberty Headlines) Liberals love to accuse conservatives of having corporation-related conflicts of interest, no matter how tenuous the link.

    But when liberal eco-warriors are called on the carpet for direct and obvious conflicts, they howl.

    Scott Pruitt, the conservative Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, is facing pushback from members of various EPA “advisory boards” for his directive asking for resignations from the board by any members who also receive grants from the EPA.

    As noted by the press release accompanying Pruitt’s Oct. 31 directive, “According to EPA calculations, in just the last three years, members of three of EPA’s 22 [advisory committees] – the Science Advisory Board (SAB), Clean Air Scientific Advisory Committee (CASAC) and the Board of Scientific Counselors (BOSC) – received upwards of $77 million in direct EPA grant funding while concurrently serving on these committees.”

    A memo also issued by Pruitt explained further that instead of being tempted by any financial considerations, advisory committee members “should be motivated by service and committed to providing informed and independent expertise and judgment.”

  24. Germany: Woman stabbed after rejecting advances in Brunswick

    A 17-year-old asylum seeker from Kenya was arrested on Saturday after allegedly stabbing a 21-year-old woman outside a bar in Brunswick. The suspect reportedly approached the victim in the bar on Friday night and after she refused his advances, they “probably argued” before she left the bar. He then followed her into the street and stabbed her with a “sharp object”.

    • Thnk you, Buck!

      Fecking brilliant!!!

      Transitioning from a White male to a (supposedly female) Filipina tuk-tuk driver as compared to Trump transitioning to the POTUS? Give me a farking break!!!

      I’ve been to the Philippines TWICE and never encountered this sort of pansy-assed sort of pretentious honky wanker.

      You’ve got to be kidding me?!?

      If there’s no equivalency, then there’s no LEGITIMACY.

      Good on ya, Buck!

      This sort of shite has no place in Western Civilization!!!

      Thank you for having the scrotal endowment to reject this sort of idiocy!

  25. In Australia:
    A RADICALISED Muslim who removed his wife’s right eye before slaughtering her in front of their children told police it was “normal” behaviour in the Middle East.
    The brutal killer, who cannot be named to protect the identities of his three children, is facing life behind bars after he pleaded guilty to the horrific killing in June last year.
    The Supreme Court heard on Friday how the Broadmeadows man had set out on a “prolonged and vicious” knife attack on his wife at their family home.
    He removed her right eye in what is believed to be inspired by the Islamist one-eyed antichrist Dajjal, and cut off two of her fingers while she was still alive.
    She bled to death after suffering deep lacerations across her face, neck, arms, legs, back, hips and genitalia.
    Her butchered body, wrapped in a doona with cling wrap and electrical tape, was found dumped in grassland in Dallas a month later.
    In his police interview, when an officer said it was one of the worst cases he had come across, the man replied: “Grow a gut for it as in the Middle East it’s normal.”
    Told that his family did not condone this behaviour, he said: “F— them, f— everyone. I’ve done nothing wrong.”
    When it was suggested he had put his children through hell, he said: “If they’ve gone through hell, they’ll grow up to be stronger.”
    His children — two boys, aged 6 and 4, and a girl, 2 — described to police the bloody scenes and how they watched as their father “slaughtered” their mother with a big knife.
    “All of her body was blood, nothing but blood,” one of the boys said.
    They also detailed how he cut out her right eye and flushed it down the toilet.
    “Mummy is like the antichrist,” one of the children remarked
    Prosecutor Sharn Coombes said the removal of his wife’s eye was indicative of the man’s religious beliefs and his “extreme interpretation of his own religion”.
    The court heard the man, who was acquitted several years ago in a major terror trial where he was among several men accused of planning terror attacks, wanted to move to Syria to fight with jihad.
    He once sliced his wife’s hand when she refused to read the book of sharia law.
    He also isolated her from her family and friends, did not allow her to leave the house without him, and forced her to wear a burqa, only showing her eyes.
    When she started working from home as a seamstress, he wouldn’t allow her to repair men’s clothing. He also would not allow his children to go to school, watch TV, or speak English.
    “He wanted to teach them about guns, jihad and the war,” Ms Coombes said.
    Their home had just bare mattresses in the bedrooms, a milk crate in the loungeroom, scribble on the walls and smashed windows.
    Defence lawyer Scott Johns argued that the man was in a drug-induced psychosis and had a documented history of psychotic disturbance.
    “What your honour is dealing with is a person who had a very disturbed approach to his thinking at the time,” Mr Johns told Justice Lex Lasry.
    “He became convinced that his wife had been sent by god to kill him.”
    He believed that her family had used black magic on him, Mr Johns said.
    Ms Coombes asked that the maximum penalty of life without parole be imposed. But Mr Johns said the man should be given a head sentence with a chance at parole.
    The case will return to court next Wednesday, before he will be sentenced at a later date.

  26. “Barclays has stopped offering free Kaspersky anti-virus products to new customers following an official warning about Russian security software.

    The bank emailed 290,000 online banking customers on Saturday to say the move was a “precautionary decision”.

    UK cyber-security chiefs are warning government departments not to use software from Russian companies for systems relating to national security.

    Barclays said it treated the security of its customers “very seriously”.

    A spokesman for Kaspersky said it was “disappointed” that Barclays had discontinued its offer to new customers.

    The National Cyber Security Centre – the UK’s authority on cyber security and part of GCHQ – is writing to all government departments telling them Russian security software could be exploited by the Kremlin.”

  27. US Withdraws From Obama Negotiated UN Agreement On Mass Migration

    The only things Barack Obama was more intent upon than minimizing the influence of the United States abroad were making us weak at home and constraining US freedom of action by participating in every numbskull international agreement that came down the pike. While the climate change agreement got the most press, one of the most dangerous agreements he signed onto was the United Nations Compact on Global Migration.</strong

    The idea is that the “international community” as represented by some amorphous group of Third World kleptocrats and gutless, self-hating Euros would decide the policy on how the rest of the world handled mass migration.

    In 2016, Governments of the world agreed to work together to develop two Global Compacts – one on refugees, one on migration – with an ambitious goal to be finalized by September 2018. Critically, the Global Compact on Migration is intended to create the governance framework that will facilitate safe, orderly, regular and responsible migration and mobility of people. It is envisaged that the Compact will recognize migration as a reality rather than an aberration, and the importance of remittances as a source of capital and driver of development. Equally, it is envisaged that the Compact will involve States committing to protect the human rights of all migrants, irrespective of their migration status – an approach deeply connected to the goals of combatting human trafficking, migrant smuggling and modern slavery.

    If you think of “migration as a reality rather than an aberration,” then you might enjoy yourself at a New Year’s Eve celebration in a random German city or French banlieue but most of us prefer a more orderly and managed immigration process.

    This evening the Trump Administration,in the person of UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, said “no, thanks.”

    The other participants are welcome to sign their own death warrants, but, at least for now, America had elected to remain America.

    Ambassador Nikki Haley: “America is proud of our immigrant heritage and our long-standing moral leadership in providing support to migrant and refugee populations across the globe…But our decisions on immigration policies must always be made by Americans and Americans alone.”


  28. Danish MP accused of threatening female imam with ‘revenge porn’

    Sherin Khankan, the founder of Scandinavia’s first female-led mosque, has accused Conservative MP Naser Khader of threatening to release “deeply personal and private” photos that she had sent to him while they were in a romantic relationship.

    Khankan told Berlingske on Friday that Khader has tried to intimidate her into silence by hinting that he would release the intimate photos.

    According to Khankan, she and Khader had a short relationship in 1999 and during that time she sent the Conservative MP photos of “a deeply personal and private character”.

    In a private message sent by Khader to Khankan, which was first obtained by Berlingske and later released by Khader, he seemed to threaten her with the release of the photos as a result of their current feud over the funding of Khankan’s Exitcirclen, which works with the victims of religiously-motivated physical and psychological violence.

    “I found a lot in the box yesterday, including photos we took together in Lund in 2000 and a model photo you sent to me in 1999. Do you want to stop lying?” the message read.

    Khader rejected the notion that he was threatening Khankan and told Berlingske that she should “stop her manipulations and whining”. He later posted to Facebook a screenshot of what he says is the message in question along with a message accusing Khankan of lying.

    “No, we are not talking about nude photos and Sherin Khankan knows it. There are simply ‘vacation photos’ from Lund and one ‘model photo’ that is a completely normal, youthful, very decent and full-clothed photo,” he wrote. “It is very opportunistic and cynical of her to try to put this under ‘#metoo’ and ‘revenge porn’.”

    Khader and Khankan have been in a conflict over the MP’s attempts to remove state funding from Exitcirclen, which he alleges supports stoning and whipping as a punishment for extramarital affairs. Khankan has rejected the allegations and her lawyer is preparing a case against Khader and two other right-of-centre politicians for what she contends are false claims.

    The controversy over the group’s funding has also ensnared Immigration Minister Inger Støjberg, who was accused of improperly attempting to shut off funding for the project.

    The Syria-born Khader is considered one of Denmark’s most respected experts on Middle East issues and is an outspoken critic of elements of Islam. Khankan, meanwhile, is best known as the founder of the first female-led mosque in Scandinavia, where she is also an imam.

    Khader has criticized Khankan’s mosque project, saying that it was not “good enough” in a country like Denmark — known for having a high level of gender equality — to shy away from letting women preach to a mixed crowd.

    Some of Khader’s parliamentary colleagues have called for a further investigation into his message to Khankan, but the body’s chairwoman, Pia Kjærsgaard of the anti-immigration Danish People’s Party, dismissed it as “a private matter between two people, which we at this point do not need to get involved in”.

    Justice Minister and Conservative party leader Søren Pape Poulsen told Berlingske that he would have a “conversation” with Khader on the matter.

    “I think it’s an unfortunate thing in every way, and it seems first and foremost to be a personal drama between Naser Khader and Sherin Khankan, that seems to have completely gone off the rails,” he said in a written statement.

    • Just hypocritical tards.
      It’s all so sordid. All these degenerates wrapped up in or consumed by genitals. A big bore.

      The public is titillated and outraged at the same time. This is PORN.
      What’s happening in the world while we’re distracted by this noise? Why this? Why now?
