  1. STUDY: Researchers falsely frame Trump supporters as racists

    A new study finds that much of the research conducted on President Trump’s voters is marred by prejudicial designs, distorted data, and outright misrepresentation of Trump’s words.

    Led by Musa al-Gharbi, a Columbia University sociologist, “On Social Research in the Age of Trump” analyzes three case studies of academic research on Trump to illustrate the various ways that academics have misrepresented the president and his voter base to the public.

    One example of this phenomena can be seen in the April 2017 Washington Post article “Racism motivated Trump voters more than authoritarianism,” by Thomas Wood, who teaches political science classes at Ohio State University.

    While Wood cites survey data to claim that Trump voters were especially motivated by racism, a closer analysis by al-Gharbi reveals that Wood’s arguments about Trump voters can’t be substantiated from the data cited in the article.

    “According to Wood’s own data, whites who voted for Trump are perhaps less racist than those who voted for Romney,” al-Gharbi explains, adding that “not only were they less authoritarian than Romney voters, but less racist too!”

    “Unfortunately, Wood declined to consider how Trump voters differed from Romney voters…instead focusing on the gap between Democrats and Republicans in 2016, in the service of a conclusion his data do not support,” he adds.

  3. Manafort Investigated But Not Charged for Crimes in 2014 Because Obama Cronies Implicated in Probe

    A pair of Internet sleuths have uncovered information from the 2014 investigation of Paul Manafort that reportedly went nowhere because Manafort was tied to former President Obama’s Chief Counsel, Greg Craig, and State Department envoy, Cliff Sloan.

  4. WOW: Don Jr Compared The Democrats To 1930’s Germany, And The Left Is Triggered As Hell

    Donald Trump Jr. has somehow managed to make Democrats hate him even more than they already did with some provocative food for thought that there many similarities between the DNC and a certain regime that rose to power in 1930s Germany.

    The greatest trick that the devil ever played was making people believe that he didn’t exist. Even greater is the scam that has been perpetrated by the modern political left and in particular, the Democratic party and the DNC under the extremist glimmer twins Tom Perez and Keith Ellison.

    Ever since President Trump’s election, the Dems, the media and their shock troops of the Resistance have shamelessly invoked the Nazi card against their political enemies.

    But it is the Democrats themselves who have far more in common with Hitler’s regime, especially the early years when the Sturmabteilung (brownshirts) routinely disrupted their political opponents, intimidated and beat those who did not support the Nazis and most importantly, became experts in the big lie.

  5. Deutsche Welle – Sparing refugees the perilous crossing to Europe

  7. Deutsche Welle – Europe’s Flashpoints (1/2)

    These are testing times for the EU: Brexit, the search for a common approach to migration, and dwindling faith in its old transatlantic partner, the US.

    Italy is the latest addition to the mix, as the new government in Rome seeks to lay down a hard line over refugees and migrants. Our two-part documentary examines this precarious political situation in the EU.

    Italy is on the front line of the migration crisis but other EU members states with a much lower proportion of ethnic minorities, such as Poland, Hungary or the Czech Republic, have been leading ‘by example’ – emphasizing national priorities over the common cause.

    Some of the larger and longer-standing member states such as Germany and France have been trying to put the brakes on this development, with Chancellor Angela Merkel and President Emmanuel Macron calling for a united front.

    However, internal disputes over immigration and refugee policy have turned this issue into a tightrope for the German leader in particular.

    Meanwhile, beyond the EU’s external borders, the strongmen seem to be getting stronger. The Russian president, Vladimir Putin, made clear his contempt for Western sanctions by opening a bridge to the annexed region of Crimea.

    His Turkish counterpart, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, has been slowly cementing his authoritarian power since a failed coup d’état; while in Syria, the EU’s role amounts to no more than that of an observer looking on as other powers take the initiative.

    Meanwhile, the EU lacks the agility to capitalize on the space vacated by Donald Trump’s disengagement from the international agreement on Teheran’s nuclear program.

    • Despite the jumpy editing, this is one of the twentieth-first century’s most important messages. Eeyore, please consider moving to the Front Page.

      If seriously attractive Caucasian women—not in a superficial, pneumatic or cosmetic sense—wish to draw healthy males to them, they’ll need to exhibit a lot more (uncommon) “Common Sense”—as portrayed in the clip.

      Yes, making babies is moderately hellish. Yust like doing a lifetime of 9-to-5 is unremitting, everliving hell.

      It’s what we women and men do and, successfully accomplished, keeps the Caucasian Race alive. Other ethnicities may please apply at the next window (as in: I’m sick and tired of being crowded out of my own civic services by a bunch of salwar kameezse-clad, serape-swathed, sari-draped, carpet-farking-baggers).

      Yup, I’m a hydroelectrically dammed bigot and just try to tell me that it’s not my Constitutional Right. I’m so fed up with seeing this country’s military veterans, widows, and survivors having to stand in line behind a bunch of ‘anchor babies’ and Economic Tourists™ to where I’ll be triple-damned-in-hell about tolerating this endless crap.

      As I mentioned elsewhere at this site, just the other day, I gently praised a WWII veteran for having, Fought Hard, and Won Hard©. We should be so fortunate to have even a slight fraction of such hearty breeds defending our modern borders right now.

      PS: This is where the Opioid Divide© will take its “stealth” toll upon an already vulnerable North American population. I realize that this might sound like some strange retroflection, nevertheless, the same Digital Divide® that implacably awaits Islam is hanging fire for the yuge percentage of American citizens which think that sitting around playing video games and harfing Vicoden™ is some sort of “self-improvement” class.

  12. CBC – Chrystia Freeland says plight of stranded White Helmets keeps her ‘awake at night’

    […]Some White Helmets still on the ground have taken to social media and others have given interviews describing how the exodus of hundreds of their companions on the Syrian side of the Golan Heights has sharpened the desire of Assad’s troops to kill them.

    “It is keeping me awake at night. It’s dreadful,” Freeland said, prior to departing Toronto for an official visit to Mexico. “I don’t want to give false hope to anyone, but I do want to assure people that we continue to feel a strong moral responsibility to the White Helmets who are still in Syria. We are in close communication with the White Helmets themselves.”

    […]Freeland said Canada and its allies had been prepared for up to 1,200 people to cross over and make their way to Jordan.

    […]”While in Jordan, the UNHCR — the UN Refugee Agency, in close collaboration with the involved governments, is supporting their temporary stay in anticipation of their onward relocation to third countries,”

    […]”Our goal is not to dislocate people — or to be like refugees in the country,” said Muzna Dureid, who acts as a liaison for the group in Canada. “Our goal is to help people in Syria.”


    Casques blancs: Freeland accuse Moscou de faire de la «propagande»

    […]la ministre `strong>Freeland a accusé le Kremlin de faire de la «propagande» contre ce «groupe de gens si héroïque».

    […] la porte-parole du ministre russe des Affaires étrangères a indiqué que l’implication du Canada dans leur évacuation n’a pas étonné Moscou.

    «Ce n’est pas surprenant qu’ils se cachent maintenant au Canada aussi, a déclaré Maria Zakharova. Laissez-moi vous rappeler que ces gens entretenaient des liens étroits avec des extrémistes.» «Pendant ce temps, ces pseudo-travailleurs humanitaires essayaient de maintenir la Syrie en état de guerre aussi longtemps que possible et de provoquer de nouveaux conflits»

    […]La ministre Freeland ne voit dans ces allégations qu’une tentative des gouvernements russe et syrien de discréditer ceux qui ont selon elle documenté tant d’images incriminantes.

    «C’est un travail très important que les Casques blancs ont fait, mais, évidemment, c’est une des raisons pour lesquelles il y a une propagande si négative contre eux du côté du régime d’Assad et du côté de la Russie», a-t-elle fait valoir samedi.

  13. Protesters Attack Religious School in Iran as it Braces for US Sanctions (aawsat, Aug 4, 2018)

    “Protesters attacked on Saturday a religious school in Iran’s Karaj province as tensions mount ahead of the United States’ re-imposition of sanctions.

    Iranian authorities have barely mentioned days of protests in the major cities of Isfahan, Shiraz, Mashhad and Tehran, driven by concerns over water, the economy and wider anger at the political system.

    During past unrest, conservative outlets have focused on attacks against sensitive symbols such as religious buildings as a way of tarnishing protesters.

    “At 9:00 pm (1630 GMT on Friday) they attacked the school and tried to break the doors down and burn things,” the conservative Fars news agency quoted the head of the school in the town of Ishtehad, Hojatoleslam Hindiani, as saying, giving only his clerical rank and no first name.

    “They were about 500 people and they chanted against the system but they were dispersed by the riot police and some have been arrested,” Hindiani said.

    Fars acknowledged protests have taken place in “five or six cities” since Tuesday over water shortages, rising prices and joblessness, with “about 1,000 or 2,000 people” taking part.

    But it said these peaceful protests were taken over by people “who come into the crowd with political slogans such as ‘Death to the dictator'”…”

    Huge crowds of people came to the Temerhanovs’ house in the Gheldagan village, to express their condolences. The mourners consider him a real hero and thanked the parents for bringing him up.
