    Mohiussunnath Chowdhury allegedly rammed into police at Buckingham Palace
    The Uber driver, 26, told the Old Bailey he wanted to kill himself in the attack
    His sister grew concerned when he suggested watching Channel 4 drama The State about British-born ISIS fighters

  2. A 21-year-old Gambian asylum seeker has been arrested on suspicion of robbing and sexually assaulting an elderly German woman, website Presseportal reports.

    The asylum seeker is accused of having entered the room of a 90-year-old woman on the morning of the 26th of May 2018 in a nursing home in Wendlingen. There he is said to have sexually assaulted the sleeping elderly woman.

    When she woke up and fended off the man, he tried to pull the wedding ring from her finger. When this failed, he let go of her and took a flat screen TV.

  3. Police in Paris discovered a Quran along with texts in Arabic in a car which was used to ram a police vehicle twice before the suspects fled on foot.
    The attacks on the Paris police van occurred on Wednesday at around midnight on the Avenue de la Porte d’Aubervilliers in the northern part of the city bordering the 18th and 19th arrondissements, BFMTV reports.

    Initially, the men in the car were asked to slow down as they were speeding. Following the warning, the car rammed the police van and sped away with the police in pursuit. When the vehicle was stopped by traffic, the driver attempted to ram the police van a second time and then the four occupants got out and ran, abandoning the car.

  4. Van kills one at Dutch music festival, driver turns himself in

    2 MIN READ

    AMSTERDAM (Reuters) – A van struck four people at the Netherlands’ largest music festival in the early hours of Monday, killing one of them and injuring the others before driving off, police said.

  5. An 18-year-old male has suffered “life-changing” injuries after being attacked with a knuckleduster and sprayed with a noxious substance and two males, including a 15-year-old boy, were stabbed over the weekend in London.
    The 18-year-old was attacked by three men after he got off a bus in Greenwich, South East London, in the early hours of Saturday morning in what police described as an “unprovoked” assault, reports the Evening Standard.

    The young man was making his way down Bexley Road after a night out when he was approached by three men. The teen tried to move out of their way, but they would not let him pass and harassed him verbally, swearing aggressively.

  6. Last month, two dozen Somali youths swarmed and attacked two Maine residents in a park in Lewiston, beating them with sticks while laughing, as video of the incident shows.

    One of the victims was hospitalized, but no charges were filed.

    Then, last Tuesday, a group of Somalis fired pellet guns at non-Somalis in the same park. A fight broke out and one non-Somali, a 38-year-old father of two, died days later from his injuries.

    Kennedy Park in Lewiston has become the focal point of such clashes, according to reports.

    Previously, a 10-year-old girl was jumped and beaten by a Somali girl at the park. As such occurrences become more common in Lewiston, many lifelong residents are now afraid to bring their own children to play.

    Some residents say police officers tell them the safest thing would be not to bring their kids to the park anymore.

    “Kennedy Park is a large common space in the middle of some of the poorest census tracts in the Northeast,” Mayor Shane Bouchard said. “When you have large, diverse groups of people in the same place you are bound to have incidents. Lewiston is no different in that respect than any other medium to large city, except that Lewiston’s violent crime rate is one of the lowest in Maine.”

    Bouchard says these types of incidents are common at Kennedy Park, but points to Lewiston’s low crime rate.

  7. A furious plane passenger was filmed as he branded an air hostess a ‘stupid fucking bitch’ after being served a turkey roll with ham label. The middle-aged man from Hampstead Heath, north London, was flying from Luton airport to Skopje, Macedonia, on Sunday morning when he ordered the £3.90 roll and a bottle of water. Who is Philip Cross? What we know about the mysterious Wikipedia editor But mid-way through eating the turkey ham sandwich he said it ‘didn’t taste like turkey’ – and flew into a rage because he believed that ‘ham’ meant it contained pork, which it does not. He called over the Wizz Air stewardess and went on a furious rant – and demanding a refund, after becoming convinced the product contained pork – explaining that he cannot eat it due to his religion. He’s heard saying: ‘I work in restaurants, I know what ham is. Ham is pork. It’s not tasting like turkey, it’s tasting like ham.

  8. ‘Uber driver armed with samurai sword attacked police outside Buckingham Palace because Queen was enemy of Allah

    An Uber driver armed with a samurai sword tried to attack police officers outside Buckingham Palace because he believed the Queen was “an enemy of Allah”, the Old Bailey heard.

    Mohiussunnath Chowdhury, 27, swerved in front of a police van outside the Royal residence and reached for the four-foot blade in the footwell of his cab, it is said.

    He wanted to become a “martyr” and was heard shouting “Allahu Akbar” as he tussled with officers as they tried to restrain him, on August 25 last year.

    Prosecutor Timothy Kray QC told jurors Chowdhury had left behind a suicide note, addressed to his sister, outlining the reasons for his planned attack.

    “Tell everyone that I love them and they should struggle against the enemies of Allah with their lives and their property”, he wrote.

    “The Queen and her soldiers will all be in the hellfire.

    “They go to war with Muslims around the world and kill them without any mercy.

    “They are the enemies that Allah tells us to fight.”

    Mr Kray told the court Chowdhury had bought a sharpener for the sword a few hours before the alleged attack, and wanted to be “in paradise with Allah”.

    However he now claims that he only intended to get himself killed and was not planning to hurt anyone else.

    “He had expressed hatred to the Queen and her soldiers, which in his mind her soldiers included the police”, he said.

    “It was only due to the bravery and quick reactions of the police that this defendant was stopped from doing some act even more serious.”

    Mr Kray said Chowdhury “was saying to his sister he intended to get to paradise by becoming a martyr, fighting in his words the enemies of Allah”.

    The court heard the police officers initially believed they were dealing with a drunk driver when Chowdhury served in front of their van.

    However, they soon realised it was a terrorist attack when he became shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’, jurors were told.

    One officer managed to get to Chowdhury before he could take the sword out of its sheath, it is said, while another officer jumped into the car to restrain the driver.

    Chowdhury, from Luton, denies engaging in conduct in preparation of an act of terrorism.

    The trial continues.

  9. Merkel to consult border countries on migration?

    The Chancellor has invited representatives of border countries and Austria this weekend to hear their opinion on the issue.
    Merkel has proposed that countries that refuse to take migrants pay for the protection of common borders.

    Bulgarian Prime-Minister proposes closing all borders in the EU
    In spite of the headline, Borisov’s actual proposal is to take the fingerprints of migrants and accept only those that “meet the requirements” (i.e. talking about complete closure of borders is a taboo to EU officials, and he dares not break it. Closing the borders is not their intention.
    Attempts at actual protection of common EU borders pass through Germany doing this at a national level – other countries will feel free to do so as well, and stand a chance if they unite and send soldiers and equipment in Greece, Italy, Spain, Bulgaria and Malta.)

  10. The Deep State and Tyranny
    The deeper dangers that the FBI IG report reflects. June 18, 2018Bruce Thornton

    The Department of Justice Inspector General’s Report released last week didn’t tell us anything we didn’t know, but merely added more damning evidence for the corruption of the FBI and its investigations over the last few years. More worthy of comment, as Andy McCarthy writes, is its refusal to use common sense and note the obvious interconnections among the various bad actors, and the bond of political bias, seasoned with careerism and arrogance, that united them.

    But the problems we are confronting reflect deeper dangers than the professional corruption of some functionaries of corrupt executive agencies armed with the coercive power of the state. The true moral of the story is the dangers to freedom of centralized and concentrated power––the very dangers consensual governments, including our own, were created to minimize.

    • This article warns of the bloated bureaucracy all Western Nations suffer from, the US Constitution and Representative Republic was set up to prevent this but the left worked slowly to take over the educational system and to stop the teaching of the Constitution and why it was written. They also worked hard to take over the Judiciary so they could use Judicial Activism to Change the Constitution (although some of the changes were through the formal amending process) and to write laws giving the Federal Government more and more power. This concentration of power has allowed the bureaucrats (functionaries) to develop the arrogance that they think they can decide who is to be President and to defy the elected representatives of the people that are given oversight powers over their actions.

      What we are now watching is the struggle to decide if the leftist dominated functionaries will rule the US or if our elected officials will regain control. If the functionaries are allowed to maintain their power only a violent civil war will restore our freedom. If the elected officials regain control we are then stuck with them not wanting to reduce their own power. Either way we need a Constitutional Convention to amend the Constitution to restore the power to the States and the Individuals that the left has raped from us during the 20th Century.

      Yes NR I know your objection but at a Constitutional Convention each state gets one vote, they can send as many people as they want but they only get one vote on the amendments. Then it will take 38 states voting to amend the Constitution to move the amendment from the Convention to the states where once again 30 states (through their legislatures) to adopt the amendments. One of the things we need to do is change the selection of the Senators back to the States, if the Senators are dependent on the Legislatures for their jobs they won’t be as willing to strip rights from the state and give it to the Federal Government. Then we need to place term limits on the Elected Officials so they can’t spend 20 to 30 years creating mini Empires in DC, and to prevent the functionaries from once again seizing power we need to restore the Federal Government to the way it was intended. If the Constitution doesn’t specifically give them permission to do things they are forbidden from doing them. (the same is suppose to apply to the state governments) We also need to restore the idea that if the people aren’t specifically forbidden from doing something they are allowed to do it.

      Making the changes I mention will move the idea of abortion back to the states and the right to decide who can get married back to the states. There are other things that will be moved back to the states or the local governments like education. What the schools teach should be left to the local school boards not the Federal Government of a Teachers Union.

      Speaking of Teachers Unions the government unions need to be disbanded and not allowed to reform.

      • Yes NR I know your objection but at a Constitutional Convention each state gets one vote, they can send as many people as they want but they only get one vote on the amendments.

        Richard, I’m unsure as to exactly where we’re supposed to disagree.

        Per Constitutional Conventions, my sole concern is seeing America’s electoral system sufficiently restabilized (i.e., de-corrupted) to where Leftist anarchy has no opportunity to disrupt even the slightest efforts towards worthily recalibrating such a mission-critical document as The Constitution … for another two centuries.

        Doing this without risking all is difficult to imagine. I fully-well realize that, as it stands, allowing the Deep State to run amok is risking all to begin with. Please suggest away…


        • I thought you were the one objecting because of the idea that the liberal states could flood the convention with delegates and steal everything.

          Yeah it is crunch time, if we do nothing we will lose all of our freedom the next time a Dem or other far left lib wins the election. As far as I can see we either set back and let them steal the nations or call a Convention and work to restore our nation.

      • Potus-2 says our Constitution was written for a “religious and moral” people. It’s entirely unsuited for others.
        (That’s what he says, I’m just channelling it.)

        • Yeah he said that, a lot of revisionists are pushing the idea that the Founding Fathers weren’t religious and feared Christianity but that wasn’t the case. Adams and the others expected that only people who respected everyone’s rights would be elected President. Their expectations held true for most of the 19th Century but fell apart in the 20th.

          We have to restore the nation to what it use to be.

          One way is to ensure that the Texas law that allows you to use lethal force to protect your property is put into the legal code of all states.

    • This tard sounds moderate – maybe even IS moderate. But the fact is he’s bent on ensuring ever more tards enter the country. Expanding family reunification, increasing quota of “skilled” applicants.

  11. Illegal Aliens Are A Domestic Violence Problem
    Immigration didn’t save these women. It killed them.June 18, 2018Daniel Greenfield

    Sanctuary state and city activists have been demanding that ICE agents should be barred from courthouses because fear of deportation deters illegal aliens from making court appearances. At the top of their list of sympathetic complainants are victims of domestic violence. A recent New York Times story even claimed that fewer immigrants are reporting domestic violence out of fear of deportation.

    Why is domestic violence such a common theme in the media’s pro-illegal spin machine? It could just be another case of the pro-illegal lobby picking the most sympathetic groups, small children, abused women, to undermine immigration law and protect a Democrat voting bloc by any means necessary.

    But there actually is an alien domestic violence problem. And it’s a serious one.

    Illegal alien populations are largely drawn from countries with much higher rates of violence against women than the United States. El Salvador, in particular, has been described as ‘femicidal’. Some of that violence is perpetrated by the MS-13 gang which is notorious for its abuse of women. But not all of it.

    What is even more disturbing is that immigrant violence against women actually rises after migration.

  12. We Don’t Have a “Zero Tolerance” Policy for Illegal Migration
    June 18, 2018Daniel Greenfield

    The fake news media spent the past week screeching that we have a policy of “separating families” at the border. And that this is a “zero tolerance” policy.


    The only policy we have is arresting people who cross the border illegally.

    That’s it.

    If they have kids, then like every other criminal with kids, they’re separated from their criminal parents. Because we don’t send children to prison for the crimes of their parents.

    That’s not zero tolerance.

    That is the minimum we could do to enforce the law. Anything less than that is open borders. That’s what Obama did. If you wanted to cross the border, you did. And the patrol would help you out.

    1. There’s no policy of “separating families”. There’s a policy of arresting migrants who illegally cross the border.

  13. “I Want to Kill All You Jews”: Muslim With Knife Chases UK Jewish Children
    June 18, 2018Daniel Greenfield

    As Mayor Sadiq Khan would say, having your children chased down the street by a knife-wielding Muslim woman screaming about the Jews is “part and parcel of living in a great global city.”

    A female suspect was arrested on Sunday after she ran after children with a knife while shouting “I want to kill all you Jews” in the Haringey area of London.

    The suspect was arrested after police were alerted of the incident by the Shomrim organization.

    And the police will blame mental illness.

    Here’s an easy guide to spotting mental illness in Europe.

    1. If a Muslim runs down the street shouting that he wants to kill non-Muslims, it’s mental illness/drug abuse.

    2. If a non-Muslim runs down the street screaming that he wants to kill non-Muslims, it’s a hate crime and a topic for a national conversation lasting not less than 3 weeks.

    Anyway, back to Haringey.

  14. The UN’s Collusion With Terrorists
    One-sided condemnations of Israel give ammunition to Hamas. June 18, 2018Joseph Klein

    At an emergency meeting held on June 13th, the United Nation General Assembly adopted another one-sided resolution against Israel. The resolution, proposed by Turkey and Algeria, deplored the use of allegedly excessive, disproportionate and indiscriminate force by Israeli forces against Palestinian civilians in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including the Gaza Strip, which the resolution pretends is still “occupied” by Israel. The anti-Israel resolution demanded that Israel refrain from such actions and fully abide by its legal obligations under the Fourth Geneva Convention relating to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War, of 12 August 1949. It also requested the UN Secretary General to submit a report in no later than 60 days, outlining proposals on ways and means for ensuring the safety of Palestinian civilians, including on an international protection mechanism. The General Assembly resolution is virtually identical to Kuwait’s draft UN Security Council resolution that was vetoed by the United States on June 1st.

    The General Assembly resolution, which was adopted by a vote of 120 in favor to 8 against with 45 abstentions, ignored Hamas’s acts of terrorism and provocations, including using children as human shields and its attempts to invade Israel during the protests at the Israeli-Gaza border in recent weeks demanding a so-called “right of return.” It ignored the fact that Hamas controls the Gaza Strip, which it uses as a base for its attacks against Israeli civilians, and that there have been no Israeli soldiers “occupying” Gaza since Israel’s unilateral withdrawal in 2005. The closest that the resolution came to acknowledge what Israeli civilians have had to put up with for years was deploring in general terms the firing of rockets from the Gaza Strip into Israeli civilian areas.

  15. How to Talk to a Leftist Friend about Tommy Robinson
    Free speech and feminism are liberal values, aren’t they?June 18, 2018Danusha V. Goska

    A cozy wood fire burns in an open-face brick oven. Soft piano music floats through a smooth jazz repertoire of American standards. Porsches and Maseratis cruise past the window. Two women approach, embrace, and kiss each other’s cheeks.

    RACHEL: Wanda, it’s been too long. Great to see you. You have to tell me all about your new book.

    WANDA: Great to see you, too! I love your new glasses. And I want to hear all about your youngest. She just bought a condo with her fiancée, no? It seems like just yesterday they were playing with dolls.

    WAITRESS: Have a look at our menu.

    WANDA: Thank you. Listen, Rachel, you know me. Always obsessed with current events. I want to ask you to sign a petition requesting that British Prime Minister Theresa May free Tommy Robinson from prison.

    RACHEL: So, what looks good? I think I’m going to try the arugula and pistachio pesto pie. You?

    WANDA: Oh, I’ll just get the usual. I see you have your laptop with you. I can find the Tommy Robinson petition and you can sign right now.

    RACHEL: Aren’t you going to tell me about your book? And don’t you want to hear about the condo?

  16. Media: How Dare You Complain About Our Collusion With Foreign Government Hackers?
    June 18, 2018Daniel Greenfield

    For some context, here’s a summary of this story from March.

    Qatar’s influence operations took an ominous turn when Elliott Broidy, a top Trump donor, had his emails hacked by individuals he alleges were Qatari agents.

    “We have reason to believe this hack was sponsored and carried out by registered and unregistered agents of Qatar seeking to punish Mr Broidy for his strong opposition to state-sponsored terrorism,” Broidy’s spokesman said.

    These two incidents of alleged Qatari espionage against Americans in order to influence our foreign policy raise serious questions.

    The material was handfed to the media which then tried to turn Elliot Broidy into the latest villain in their Trump gallery. But Broidy didn’t give up. He went after the lobbyist-hacker-reporter Qatar axis and came back with scalps. Those included evidence that reporters, Qatar’s registered agents and the hackers were colluding. So now the media is playing defense and crying, “How dare you complain about our collusion with foreign governments and their hackers trying to influence American politics by leaking the email contents of their targets?”

    I’m confused. Doesn’t the whole Russia Trump conspiracy theory rely largely on this very thing?

    But here’s BuzzFeed’s media privilege voxsplainer.

  17. Fact-Checking Is Now Just Clickbait Garbage
    June 18, 2018Daniel Greenfield

    And no, we’re not talking about Snopes. Though it’s fact checking spam has become notorious.

    Instead this is the end result of the media’s hysteria about “fake news”, the pressure on Facebook and Google to embed fact checkers, and the subsequent swarm of clickbait fact checks. This story itself doesn’t matter. It’s just symptomatic of the dumpster fire.

  18. Colombia: Conservative Defeats Far Leftist in Presidential Election

    Colombia officially declared conservative candidate Iván Duque the winner of Sunday’s presidential election after decisively defeating his hard-left opponent Gustavo Petro.

    The 40-year-old former lawyer clinched the presidency after polling around 54 percent, equivalent to 10.3 million votes. His opponent Petro, the left-wing former mayor of Bogotá, won around 42 support of the vote, garnering just over eight million votes. Around 4 percent of people cast their vote blank.

  19. The Syrian Intervention: Following the Wingate Model

    BESA Center Perspectives Paper No. 869, June 18, 2018

    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: Orde Wingate’s approach to the liberation of Ethiopia from Italian occupation in 1941 provides a useful model for modern-day intervention in Syria. Rather than hand out money and materiel to local forces (à la the British support of the anti-Ottoman “Great Arab Revolt” of WWI), Wingate advocated committing one’s own forces and then allowing local forces to participate of their own accord. In Wingate’s view, loyalty bought with cash and weapons will always prove temporary.

    One of the recurrent arguments against full-scale American intervention in Syria (as well as in Kurdistan) has been the contention that the various rebel forces might prove to be greater regional threats than the murderous, yet contained, Assad regime.

    This misconception is anything but new. Two years ago, Steven Heydemann, nonresident senior fellow at the Center for Middle East Policy at the Brookings Institution, wrote in his “Why the United States hasn’t intervened in Syria” that in addition to a “deep cognitive bias against risk” and an overreliance on lessons presumably learned from earlier US interventions, previous administrations failed to appreciate that “Syrian fighters followed resources, not beliefs.”

    Richard: Orde Wingate was a good and unconventional soldier, his willingness to break with tradition and do things differently is one reason most people never heard about him. During his life time he had many enemies in the British Military and this has kept his true genius from being known to most people. I hadn’t thought about him in his long range penetration raids into Burma for a long time but now that it is pointed out I see where actions in Nam and now in the Middle East are based on his ideas.

  20. SHOOTING HORROR Malmo ‘shooting sees multiple people injured after gunman fired 15-20 shots into internet cafe’

    The scene of the terrifying attack in the Swedish city has been cordoned off by police
    AT least four people have been injured after a shooting at a cafe in Malmo, Sweden, police have confirmed.

    A gunman is said to have fired up to 20 bullets into an internet coffee shop, according to local media.

    Officials said the motive for the terrifying attack is unknown while the condition of those wounded is also not clear.

    “We have sealed off the area and are conducting interviews and will interview those who are injured if they can or are willing to speak,” police spokesman Stephan Soderholm said.

  21. Majority of Austrians support closing of mosques as govt battles ‘political Islam’ – poll (RT, Jun 18, 2018)

    “The Austrian government’s push against “political Islam” has drawn popular support, a recent poll shows. While more than 60 percent approve of the measures, 14 percent of the respondents say they were “too soft.”

    A survey conducted by Unique Research for Profile Magazine revealed that 66 percent of Austrians believe the government’s decision to shut down seven mosques and to consider the expulsion of dozens of imams was right.

    The number of those who say the approach is “too soft” is higher than those who believe it is “too harsh” – 14 percent to 10 percent. Ten percent of the respondents were undecided…”

  22. Why Will San Francisco High Schoolers Learn Hate?

    Editor’s Note: After reporting on the mandatory moment of silence held in solidarity with Hamas terrorists in Gaza at the publicly-funded Beacon School in Manhattan, readers have written to us with similar stories, as in a similar incident in Brooklyn’s Midwood High School. The following is yet another case of extremism being sanction in America’s public high schools. It was written by a member of the community in San Francisco. The writer is a parent of a student in the San Francisco School District.

    On May 22, the San Francisco Board of Education voted 6-1 to approve a three-year memorandum of understanding (MOU) agreement with an extremist, anti-Semitic group to provide academic support and “workshops” in five high schools. The workshops will be open to all students, but are designed to provide special support to Arab-American and Arabic-speaking students.

    The schools are Balboa, Galileo, Mission, International and Raoul Wallenberg High Schools.

    Nobody objects to Arab students and families getting whatever help they need. Everyone supports that. What we don’t want, however, is those services delivered in the schools by a divisive, radical group that has a pathological, negative obsession with “Zionists,” which many of us understand to be code for hatred of Jews.

  23. It’s not only the FBI that has been guilty of political bias: This gov’t agency is also no fan of Trump
    By Daily Caller News Foundation June 17, 2018

    The head of a subdivision within the Executive Office of the President used social media to criticize and deride President Donald Trump, according to posts recently unearthed by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

    Matt Cutts worked at Google for 17 years as a distinguished engineer and now leads the United States Digital Service (USDS), which among many other goals tries to help federal agencies improve their information technology infrastructure. He referred to Trump when he was a Republican candidate for president as a “troll” in one tweet.

    Much like the department he leads, Cutts had been very quiet since taking his position in the government during the Obama administration until recent weeks where he’s been championing the work of his team — many of whom come from Google like himself. He and his efforts have been featured in prominent tech publications like Ars Technica and Wired, which discusses the differences of working within the Obama administration and the current one.

    • OT/
      Tweet “Don’t feed the trolls” reminds me – I’m using will power not to respond to our prolific new poster/troll.
      I’m glad we have Perfectchild’s input, though. A professional to manage a nutcase, if he thinks it’s worth his time and energy.

      • Yeah, I try to ignore him as much as I can, NR saved me from asking him if he considered himself a rational reasonable adult male?

        • Provocative critter. But that’s what they do.

          The boilerplate “Agenda” is good – don’t correct anybody’s grammar, avoid obscure abbreviations, be yourself.
          And: _Don’t. Feed. Trolls._

  24. Nunes: Deep State Police “Think They Can Run the Clock Out”

    The deep state police are using redaction and classification to obstruct congress until Democrats can get back in power.

    There are lots of fascinating comments made by House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes on the tactics of the deep state police and the hopes or goals that those tactics are aimed at. As he says in his comments at 4:20 they’re hoping they can delay until somehow Democrats or establishment Republicans get control of Congress.

    Invasion hijrah: 80,000 Muslim migrants enroute to Europe, armed forces deployed

    Amid daily acts of jihad terror and abject lawlessness ….

    There are 100,000 Muslim migrants enroute to Western Europe. The New York Times is reporting, ” Countries along a new Balkan migrant route pledged on Thursday to work together to prevent a repetition of the 2015 influx that brought more than a million refugees into Europe from North Africa and the Middle East.. Security and police officials from the region met in Bosnia to discuss their response to growing traffic along a new smuggling route from Greece through Albania, Montenegro and Bosnia to Croatia and western Europe.

    • I hope her information is wrong, but am afraid it isn’t. If Eastern Europe uses their military to stop the invaders Erdogan will have to respond or lose much face. Gonna be a scary summer.

        • If I am right about the number of trained fighters that were infiltrated into Europe he can turn a few of them, not all but a few loose and this will create a big mess in Europe. If they are well trained it doesn’t take many to cause major chaos.

      • It is, we have had ample warning but the power companies that own the grid don’t seem to want to spend the money to protect it from hacking or EMP attack.

      • If they hack the grid and we can prove it was them we can use our military to retaliate. Also I think it was yesterday I saw an article (I think I posted it) that said Trump has turned our military cyber warriors loose to strike back when we are hit. The lib who wrote the article was messing his pants over the idea of our striking back and starting a war.

      Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz and FBI Director Christopher Wray told a Senate panel that the inspector general’s report never looked into collusion and Special Counsel Robert Mueller was not on a witch hunt.

      • Yup, the public has lost all confidence in the DOJ and the FBI and given the history of the Secret Service while Obama was in office I don’t trust them. We need another independent counsel, Klayman, Rudi or Judge Jeanine spring to mind as people who could be trusted to head the investigation.

  27. Vietnam: Fears of China-takeover fuel second week of protests (asiancorrespondent, Jun 18, 2018)

    “PROTESTS against proposed special economic zones and foreign investment in Vietnam entered their second week on Sunday as thousands demonstrated peacefully in provinces and cities across the country.

    While security was tight in many areas, with increased police presence in public areas, thousands gathered peacefully in central Ha Tinh province, according to Reuters.

    The nationwide demonstration is in response to a draft law that would allow foreign investors 99-year leases; a provision critics fear would lead to Chinese companies’ encroachment on Vietnamese territory.

    Since the protests began on June 9, there have been hundreds of arrests as well as reported assaults by police.

    The most violent clashes occurred in Binh Thuan province where riot police used tear gas, smoke bombs, and water cannons to disperse the protesters. According to police, 102 people were detained after throwing rocks and Molotov cocktails.

    But demonstrations on Sunday were largely peaceful with protestors holding signs that said “No leasing land to Chinese communists for even one day” or “Cybersecurity law kills freedom.” The protest in Ha Tinh province lasted for two hours without clashes with the police, witnesses said.

    The mass protests were a rare sight in a country that severely restricts the right to freedom of assembly. Authorities require approval for public gatherings and refuse permission for meetings or marches they deem politically unacceptable…”

  28. Salvini says planning census of Roma people (ansa, Jun 18, 2018)

    “Interior Minister Matteo Salvini said Monday that the government intends to hold a special sort of ‘census’ of Roma people in Italy. The new League/5-Star Movement (M5S) executive has said it wants to close all illegal Roma camps in Italy.

    “I’m having them prepare a dossier on the Roma question in Italy at the ministry because after (former Minister Roberto) Maroni, nothing has been done and it’s chaos,” Salvini told TeleLombardia.

    “(There will be) reconnaissance on the Roma people in Italy to see who, how, how many, re-doing what was called the census.
    “We’ll have a register”.

    The minister said that Roma people who do not have the legal right to be in Italy will be deported via an agreement between States, adding that “unfortunately, you have to keep the Italian Roma at home”. The president of an association that defends the rights of the nation’s Roma and Sinti communities said Salvini’s plan is illegal…”

  29. Sweden Democrats call for referendum on Swedish EU membership after 2018 election (thelocal, Jun 18, 2018)

    “The anti-immigration Sweden Democrats (SD) have called for Sweden to hold a referendum on the country’s EU membership after the 2018 Swedish general election.

    SD party leader Jimmie Åkesson told newspaper Dagens Industri that the EU is a “large web of corruption where no one has control over anything”.

    The Swedish nationalists want Sweden to follow the UK’s example and leave the EU, and promise they will push for a referendum on the matter in the next mandate period.

    “We pay an enormous amount of money and get overwhelmingly little back. But the main reason is ideological: we should not be in an ideological union,” Åkesson claimed.

    Recent polls suggest the Sweden Democrats could be the second largest party in the autumn 2018 general election, but even if the vote plays out as such, they would still have a hard time pushing a referendum through parliament. None of the other biggest parties in Sweden support holding a vote on Swedish EU membership…”
