  1. ngary’s Prime Minister, Viktor Orban, said he will ‘not cry crocodile tears’ over the Open Society Foundations (OSF) leaving his country.

    The foundation, founded by George Soros, will move from Budapest to Germany’s capital this summer, as reported by Austrian newspaper Die Presse.

    Confronted with the report, Orban said to Hungarian broadcaster Kossuth Radio: “Listeners will perhaps understand if I don’t cry crocodile tears.” he added that “They are crashing out right now.”

  2. London saw three more stabbings overnight into Tuesday, with three teenagers wounded in the city in just two hours as Britain’s capital experiences a historic surge of murders and violent crime.
    A 17-year-old girl was arrested in West Kensington Monday evening after two other teenage girls were stabbed, the Metropolitan police said, with both victims taken to hospital where they remain in a stable condition.

    In a separate incident the same night, an 18-year-old man was stabbed during a fight outside a south London railway station. London’s Evening Standard reports the brawl was described by eye-witnesses as having been between school-uniform wearing teenagers and that the Woolwich Arsenal station was closed off by officers in the aftermath of the attack.

    • “Child Rape should be legal because it is part of our Islamic ‘culture’”

      All of which is precisely why Islam should be outlawed in Europe and North America.

      Let other countries decide for their own selves but having the Caucasian gene pool placed at risk from stabby, retarded, semi-literate, suicide drivers is an experiment in Social Engineering whose expiration date passed many years ago.

      The camel’s nose is inside the tent. Will Westerners understand the need to smite it swiftly and mightily? As this comment’s opening line reflects, there’s something else that the camel wants to bring inside the tent, and it ain’t half as pretty.

      • …why Islam should be outlawed…
        Not where the horse is out of the barn.
        Rule of law is dead there, says Richard.

        But there’s a higher law, and we better remember what we’re supposed to do:
        Deut. 30:19 – choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live…

  4. Child ‘Beaten in Unprovoked Attack’, Police Say Not ‘Cost Effective’ to Investigate

    A mother said she has filed a formal complaint to police after they refused to investigate a vicious alleged attack on her 12-year-old daughter stating it would not be “cost effective” and that “crime has gone through the roof”.

    Victoria Woods said her daughter Isabelle was punched, kicked, and thrown down a hill in Wildmoore Avenue Park, Oldham, on Wednesday in an unprovoked attack after she was set on by a group of around 15 youths — none of whom she knew, Manchester Evening News reported.

    Recalling how her daughter was “in floods of tears” after the attack, which left her with bruising, deep scratches, and “caked in mud”, Ms. Woods described the response from Greater Manchester Police (GMP) over the incident as “diabolical”.

    A day after reporting the assault she received a telephone call from a female officer who explained that police would not be taking the case any further “because it wasn’t a major crime and it was ‘just kids fighting’, in her words,” Ms. Woods said.

      Students ‘Stomped On’, Beaten with Hammer in Third ‘Asian’ Gang Attack in Oldham This Month

      A student in Oldham was hit in the head with a claw hammer and “stomped on” on Saturday — the third ‘Asian’ gang attack in Oldham, Greater Manchester, this month.

      The 20-year-old victim and a friend, also 20, were “jumped” while walking home from a takeaway near the King Street Metrolink stop shortly after 3 a.m., the Manchester Evening News reports.

      “I got up and tried to fight them off. I just thought ‘what am I going to do?’,” the friend told the newspaper, having managed to struggle to his feet and escape after being punched to the ground.

      “I ran over to the tram stop to try and get help. I was shouting at them to get off him. They were stomping on him and hit him with the hammer.”

      • The primary message here is: Keep honking, we’re reloading.

        With one atrocity after another, the reservoir of Western civility is continually stressed by all of these different attacks. Hammers, knives, firearms, grenades, IEDs, moving vehicles, passenger jet airliners? The list is as limitless as the inventory of your local DIY (Do it Yourself) warehouse. As in: There isn’t anything that can’t be weaponized.

        SIDEBAR: And this is the entire point. Are we obliged (in the name of multicultural diversity) to surround ourselves with vicious, murdering filth?

        Again, please recall that (essentially) there is no physical object or form of Western technology that can’t be turned against us by some sexually frustrated, religiously obsessed, fully indoctrinated, sand-loving, lamb eating, inbred, parasitic POS. Capiche?

        At what point will the dam holding back so much retaliatory (Western) power finally undergo irreversible, catastrophic failure?

        Please recall that larger, stronger structures typically can withstand immense amounts of overstress. However, when they fail, the level of destruction often is complete (e.g., the Twin Towers).

        Cracks already are starting to appear in the West. Those French motorcyclists that accosted their stabby, retarded, Muslim vehicular assailant are but hairline fractures on the face of this world’s most massive (nuclear-armed) civilizational edifice.

        People who are serious about “crashing the system” really need to be veeeeery careful about what they wish for. What they’re going to get and what they want are (probably) two entirely different things. Much to their entirely unwarranted surprise.

        Regardless, the deepest evil lies in those childless Socialist EU bureaucrats with their, “Après moi, le déluge.” attitudes—even as they carelessly drop the keys to the kingdom into a blind beggar’s bowl. These treacherous elite bastards have thrown the city’s gates wide-open even as the barbarians loitering there have barely started to rally their numbers.

        If we cannot dislodge these apparatchik Barnacles (follow link for timeless hilarity) and their endless hordes of self-justifying mendicant voters, they will spread to all corners and make the misery of Europe commonplace, everywhere.

        • That’s where my Dad must’ve gotten his ultra-Orthodox metaphor!
          – – He said the Bible is like a great ship. Sailing over space and time, barnacles attached themselves to it. Gotta scrape ’em off to keep moving properly.
          It’s still a sound ship.

  5. Forget the beheading videos, the ISIS propaganda on social media, even the terrorist attacks themselves. Europe, says counterterrorism expert Afshin Ellian, is Islamizing itself, and in the process, the Western values on which its democracies are built are increasingly put at risk.

    Take, for instance, Belgium’s ISLAM Party, which now hopes to participate in the country’s October local elections in 28 regions. (Its name serves as an acronym for “Integrité, Solidarité, Liberté, Authenticité, Moralité.)

    Its ultimate aim: transforming Belgium into an Islamic state. Items high on its agenda include separating men and women on public transportation, and the incorporation of sharia law – as long as this does not conflict with current laws –according to the party’s founder, Redouane Ahrouch. His own behavior, however, suggests that his respect for “current laws” and mores has its bounds: He reportedly refuses to shake hands with women, and in 2003, he received a six-month sentence for beating and threatening his wife. Currently, the Islam Party has two elected representatives in office – one in Anderlecht, the other in Molenbeek – both regions that happen to be known as hotbeds of extremism.

  6. Modern cities are brimming with objects that receive, collect and transmit data. This includes mobile phones but also objects actually embedded into our cities, such as traffic lights and air pollution stations.

    Even something as simple as a garbage bin can now be connected to the internet, meaning that it forms part of what is called the internet of things (IoT). A smart city collects the data from these digital objects and uses it to create new products and services that make cities more liveable.

    Although they have huge potential to make life better, the possibility of increasingly smarter cities also raises serious privacy concerns. Through sensors embedded into our cities and the smartphones in our pockets, smart cities will have the power to constantly identify where people are, who they are meeting and even perhaps what they are doing.

    • Thank you, Xanthippa.

      The IoT (Internet of Things) easily will prove to be one of the most intrusive and useless pieces of crap to ever dawn upon the human horizon.

    “She said the inspector had decided it was not ‘cost effective’ to investigate it in terms of the cost and manpower hours.

      Soon enough those “15 youths” will get a long-delayed taste of rough justice.

      Unfortunately, just not “soon enough”.

  8. Telford Grooming Scandal: Former Social Services Boss, Local Lawmakers Exposed as Paedophiles

    Three former Telford lawmakers, including one who oversaw the social services department during the town’s Muslim rape gang epidemic, have been exposed as paedophiles.
    Graham Bould, 60, was convicted in 2001 for sexually assaulting a 15-year-old boy in Telford during the early 1980s. He served as chairman of Shropshire County Council’s social services department from 1993 to 1998 – when the issue of mainly white girls being groom by Pakistani Muslim men began to grow.

    The same victim was also sexually assaulted by Anglican vicar and county councillor Michael Keen, 78, who sat on a Police Authority board. He was found guilty of the historic abuse in 2001.

    Keen was imprisoned for 15 months but Bould avoided a prison term because he admitted to sexually assaulting the child.

    In a separate case, Graham White, 75, was convicted of taking indecent images of a 14-year-old girl in 2004. The former parish councillor for Madeley, near Telford, was instructed to remain on the sex offenders’ register for just five years.

  9. Men outed by #MeToo have to wait only 5 months before glossy media rehabilitation

    First it was disgraced former Sen. Al Franken. Then it was disgraced former CBS News anchor Charlie Rose.

    Now, credibly accused sexual predators Mario Batali and Louis C.K. are getting a taste of the glossy press coverage that apparently awaits anyone outed by the #MeToo movement.

    The New York Times, for example, reported this month Chef Batali “appears to be deeply introspective and seeking counsel on what his future might hold.”

  10. Pakistan, US continue to differ on Afghan policy (tribune, Apr 24, 2018)
    https://tribune.com.pk/story/1693495/1-pakistan-us-continue-differ-afghan-policy/

    “Pakistan and the United States struggle to find a ‘common ground’ on Afghanistan and other regional issues despite several rounds of the talks between the two countries, officials said on Monday.

    To break the stalemate, President Donald Trump’s senior aide visited Islamabad for the second time in less than a month. Ambassador Alice Wells, the Department of State’s Senior Bureau Official, in a daylong trip held talks with Foreign Secretary Tehmina Janjua.

    The Foreign Office only issued a picture showing Wells and Janjua shaking hands before the talks. The US Embassy did release a statement but that also offered little insight into the latest round of discussions.

    The statement, nevertheless, said Ambassador Wells in her meeting with the foreign secretary discussed the status of the US South Asia strategy and efforts to make progress on regional security and stability.

    But a senior Pakistani official familiar with the talks told The Express Tribune that there was no tangible progress as far as finding a common ground on Afghanistan endgame was concerned.

    “Talks remained inconclusive,” the official said, adding that the only positive thing was that the two sides were still talking to each other.

    At the heart of the controversy is Trump administration’s insistence that Pakistan take decisive action against alleged safe havens of the ‘Haqqani network, Quetta Shura and Lashkar-e-Taiba’, according to another official.

    “Pakistan does not share the US perspective. We believe that we have taken adequate action against all groups without any discrimination,” said the official.

    While the US may have its own list of demands, Pakistan is also not satisfied with the US response so far regarding addressing Islamabad’s concerns on issues such as growing footprint of Indian secret agencies in Afghanistan. At the same time, Islamabad is upset over the manner with which the Trump administration is blaming it for the current mess in Afghanistan.

    Relations between Pakistan and Afghanistan have been on downward spiral since Trump announced a new strategy for Afghanistan and South Asia. Trump while lashing out at Pakistan for ‘not doing enough’ sought greater role for India in Afghanistan.

    Relations hit an all-time low when Trump in his New Year tweet accused Pakistan of ‘lies and deceit’. His administration subsequently suspended the entire security assistance in a bid to punish Pakistan for ‘not taking a decisive action’ against the alleged hideouts of certain militant groups.

    Tensions continued to simmer between the two countries in recent weeks with the latest move by Washington to impose travel restrictions on the Pakistani diplomats posted in the US.

    Officials said the foreign secretary did raise the issue with Ambassador Wells. Another hiccup is the involvement of a US defence attaché in a road accident in which a 22-year-old young Pakistan was killed.

    While the government admitted that the American military adviser enjoys diplomatic immunity, the victim family wants him to be tried in Pakistan.”

    http://www.hurriyetdailynews.com/opposition-has-polluted-turkish-parliament-president-erdogan-130785

    “President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an has accused the main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) of “polluting the parliament” after 15 deputies quit the CHP to join the newly founded ?Y? (Good) Party and help it set up a parliamentary group.

    “On June 24, my nation, my citizens will give a suitable response to those who polluted parliament. The solution is the ballot box,” Erdo?an said, referring to the snap poll date, at an April 23 reception held at parliament to mark National Sovereignty and Children’s Day…”

    “Jugend Rettet on Tuesday failed in a bid to get Italy’s supreme Court of Cassation to release the Iuventa, a ship the German-based NGO uses for migrant search-and-rescue operations in the Mediterranean.

    The vessel was impounded in August 2017 in the Sicilian port of Trapani in relation to a probe into the alleged aiding of illegal migration via cooperation with human traffickers.
    “We are devastated by the Court’s ruling of today,” Jugend Rettet said via Twitter: “The IUVENTA will not be free! But we will fight for the right to rescue of people in distress at sea”.

    Medical-aid NGO Doctors Without Borders (MSF) also expressed “dismay”.
    “This sends a worrying signal to #humanitarian organisations preventing #refugees and #migrants from drowning in #Mediterranean,” MSF said. “Saving lives is not a crime!”.”

  13. Migrant departures on the rise, 1,400 rescued, 11 dead (ansamed, Apr 24, 2018)
    http://www.ansamed.info/ansamed/en/news/sections/generalnews/2018/04/24/migrant-departures-on-the-rise-1400-rescued-11-dead_c154faf0-700c-4204-b575-eb0c3d4a0ed3.html

    “Mass migrant departures from Africa are picking up again after a slight respite, with about 1,400 migrants rescued from the Strait of Sicily in recent days, and 11 bodies recovered on Sunday.

    Meanwhile, French police stopped four Italians during an anti-fascist demonstration on Sunday that began in Italy near the border with France and ended in the area of Briancon on the French side.

    Interior Ministry figures, which are not updated with the latest arrivals, show that 7,814 migrants have arrived in Italy thus far in 2018, a 79% drop compared to the same period in 2017, when 36,871 migrants had arrived.

    April marked the 10th consecutive month of a decrease in arrivals.

    Arrivals showed a marked increase in recent days, however, with the majority coming from Libya.

    In terms of search and rescue in the Mediterranean, the Italian Navy and Coast Guard are active as well as the Libyan Navy and Coast Guard, the EU mission EUNAVFOR Med, and NGOs.

    On Sunday, the Libyan Navy rescued 263 migrants in two operations off the coasts of Zliten and Sabratha, the latter of which included the recovery of 11 bodies.

    On Monday morning there was a shipwreck off the coast of Libya, where 63 people were rescued by the Libyan Coast Guard and the NGO Proactiva Open Arms.

    Also on Monday morning, the ship Aquarius – which is being rented by the NGO SOS Mediterranee in partnership with Doctors Without Borders – arrived at the Italian port of Trapani with 537 migrants aboard, including 85 women, 125 children and three newborns.

    On Sunday in Pozzallo (Ragusa), 79 Tunisians arrived on a wooden boat, and authorities stopped the driver, allegedly a smuggler.

    An investigation revealed that smugglers had “promised” the crossing with an offer of “bring a friend and travel for free”.

    Meanwhile, authorities are trying to calm tensions following Sunday’s march organised by the movement ‘Briser les frontieres’ (Break the Borders), aimed at “freeing the borders from fascists”, held at the Italy-France border in the Alps.

    The march was organised after far-right militants of the Generation Identitaire movement erected plastic netting along the border stretching hundreds of metres to prevent the passage of undocumented foreigners.

    Among the Italians stopped by French police (three men and one woman), there was an anarchist from Cagliari and an anarchist with ties to the far-left militant Askatasuna centre in Turin.

    Political commentary soon followed, with League leader Matteo Salvini weighing in.

    “Every once in a while, a journalist tells me ‘the Austrians are bad, they control their borders and expel illegals’. They’re not bad, it’s we who have the government of complicit cretins, because we should be doing the exact same thing,” Salvini said.

    Edoardo Patriarca of the Democratic Party (PD) said Europe “has already known iron curtains and walls”.

    “Is Salvini targeting migration because he wants to flirt with that part of the 5-Star Movement that spoke, wrongly, about the NGOs providing taxis at sea?” Patriarca said, referring to a comment allegedly made by anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S) leader Luigi Di Maio, which Di Maio denied.

    Ylenja Lucaselli of the rightwing Brothers of Italy party called for “attention to the rise in arrivals”, which she said “represents, in any case, a danger for security and our country’s social cohesion”.(ANSAmed).”

    • Interior Ministry figures, which are not updated with the latest arrivals, show that 7,814 migrants have arrived in Italy thus far in 2018, a 79% drop compared to the same period in 2017, when 36,871 migrants had arrived.

      So, a drop from over 36,000 fleas and lice down to a mere almost 8,000 fleas and lice.

  14. Study Swedish or lose welfare, Swedish Social Democrats propose (thelocal, Apr 24, 2018)
    https://www.thelocal.se/20180424/study-swedish-or-lose-welfare-swedish-social-democrats-propose

    “Sweden’s governing Social Democrats want to make it obligatory for immigrants to study Swedish in order to claim welfare.

    If reelected in the forthcoming general election, the Social Democrats say they will bring in a ‘language obligation’ which would mean both people in the asylum process and those who need to improve their Swedish in order to get a job would have to attend Swedish courses “otherwise their welfare support will be denied”. The obligation would be attendance-based rather than based on a language test.

    “Our focus today is language, language, language. I don’t think you can overstate the importance of speaking sufficiently good Swedish – you don’t need to speak perfect Swedish – but sufficiently good Swedish for entering Swedish society and entering the labour market,” employment and integration minister Ylva Johansson said at a press conference where the language proposals were presented alongside finance minister Magdalena Andersson.

    “Many people already do so today, but we want to make it obligatory to take part in language learning,” Johansson added…”
