    • “Bono wants Africa and the EU to join forces against Trump and the US and ‘take over the world’”

      I’ll have whatever it is that he’s having. It must beat hell outta kickapoo joy juice.

      Joining forces with Africa is suicide for anyone sufficiently idiotic to attempt it.

      First off, North Africa or sub-Saharan Africa? BOTH!?! Bwahahahahahaha!!!

      Next, is this alliance meant to include the Islamic elements in both regions?

      How does this proposal mean to deal with Africa’s crippling hyper-corruption?

      Is there any contingency plan for dealing with all of the African HIV/AIDS cases?

      Does this pipe dream include borderless (snigger*) “immigration”?

      Has anyone else realized that U2 plays the same one song over and over again?

      * The PC term for snigger is “snigroe”.

    • Bonobos with less brain mass understand more about legitimate self-interest than Bono. But they also make sex all day long between young and old like outdated hippies.

      • Bonobos with less brain mass understand more about legitimate self-interest…

        “Bonobos”? There’s gotta be a “Bono” in the woodpile somewhere, eh? Too bad the U2 version can’t think itself out of a sopping wet brown paper bag.

        Yust the “Africa and the EU to join forces” part is of nigh-well limitless hilarity. As always, reliably delivered through almost transcendent Liberal naïveté.

        Then there’s that mind-bending ‘follow through’ with, “join forces against Trump and the US and ‘take over the world’”. The classic diagnosis, “Delusions of Grandeur“, doesn’t even begin to encompass what Bonobo presents in the psychiatric sense.

        Delusions, Deluded,
        Deluded, Dilaudid …
        You say Deprived,

  1. White Africans Are Not Allowed To Save Black Africans
    by Hannes Wessels
    I fear not enough people are likely to read Colonel Eeben Barlow’s book ‘Executive Outcomes: Against All Odds’, which offers a detailed account of his eventful life as a crack South African soldier, spy and covert operative, followed by his exploits as head of the potent private military company he created after leaving the military. From 1993 onwards, ‘Executive Outcomes’(EO) would come to involve itself in several daunting, dangerous, and decisive military interventions in Angola and Sierra Leone and made valiant efforts to prevent and end conflict elsewhere on the continent.
    A major problem from the outset was, while he headed up a multiracial band of professional soldiers, the command element was comprised mainly of hardened white South African officers, many of whom were Afrikaners. They came from elite regiments and had seen plenty of action in the South African border wars, and the big battles that followed in Angola where the Cubans played a pivotal role as Soviet proxies. With the accession to power of Nelson Mandela and the end of hostilities, these ‘men-of-war’ were perfectly poised for the tasks and challenges that lay ahead in bringing an end to chaos and conflict in the countries to the north. Unfortunately for them however, these were the very men that the world had learned to love to loathe as ‘Apartheid soldiers’, so this colourful band of boisterous buccaneers put the media, the clergy, NGO’s, the United Nations, and politicians and diplomats around the world in a jam. When Barlow’s men set about bringing peace by protecting the innocents and beating the hell out of the ‘bad guys’ they didn’t look like the nasty brutes the world wanted to believe they were, so the facts surrounding their well-intentioned interventions had to be twisted and fabricated.
    Their first publicised deployment was to war-weary Angola, where the world was led to believe the conflict was between a pro-Western UNITA and a Marxist MPLA but ideology and political persuasions really had very little to do with it; the defining fundamental of this war was control of the diamond fields which were under the control of UNITA and successive South African governments, (initially led by President De Klerk and then by President Mandela), at the behest of the mining corporates, acted energetically to derail efforts by Barlow and his men to weaken UNITA and force them to the bargaining table. This was because they were very comfortable with the lawless status quo that insured a free-flow of large quantities of quality stones. Despite being outnumbered, outgunned, vilified by the media and harassed mercilessly by their own government, Barlow’s men prevailed in several bloody battles and the platform for peace was laid but no sooner had the guns gone quiet and a modicum of peace restored when they were forced to quit the country under enormous diplomatic and political pressure and hostilities resumed.
    Their next mission was Sierra Leone where a provisional government led by Valentine Strasser was under siege by the Revolutionary United Front (RUF) led by a murderous maniac called Foday Sankoh who was supported by Charles Taylor in Liberia; again diamonds were the root of the conflict. The drug-crazed RUF was arguably one of the most vicious and terrifying militias in history and its gruesome reign of terror against the populace made Barlow’s men frequent witness to the most appalling brutality. Describing just one of countless atrocities they came upon Barlow writes of, ‘Pregnant women who had been suspended upside down and slit open from vagina to throat and left to die. Others had burning stakes pushed up their vaginas and anuses. Several were cooked and eaten. Many had their arms and legs hacked off with machetes. Suffering a swift death at the hands of the rebels was considered a blessing.’
    Despite this ghastly killing campaign the Americans, the European powers and the UN dithered, discussed, deliberated, expressed shock and horror and did nothing. The tough South Africans, despite limited resources and low on numbers, under the command of celebrated Selous Scout Major Bert Sachse, launched themselves at the rebels with alacrity, smashed them in one battle after another and sent the vanquished scurrying off into their jungle sanctuaries to the unbridled delight of hundreds of thousands of terrified civilians. But sadly, this joy was not shared by the West, the media, or the UN, and far from these men being hailed as heroes, they were castigated and condemned and after enormous pressure on the Freetown government, compelled to pack and leave unceremoniously to the great distress of the majority of the citizenry. A force of a hundred that served the government of the day at relatively little cost and saved a country from a bloodbath, was replaced by a shambolic UN force that eventually numbered 17,000, cost close to US$ 1 billion, lost the initiative, and did little other than revel in the lawlessness they subsequently helped engender.
    Making for particularly distressing reading is Barlow’s attempt to use his men to intervene in Rwanda before the genocide. The shrewd and informed Colonel knew very well what was coming and formulated a plan of action to thwart the genocide that would have cost in money terms, roughly what America spends in a day in Afghanistan. The late Kofi Annan, later Secretary General of the UN and Nobel Peace Prize winner, was scornfully dismissive of Barlow’s entreaties while President Clinton let it be known US forces would not be riding to the rescue. The rest is history; approximately a million people were butchered and the world watched with interest while a handful of former South African soldiers who could have stopped it all, were banished to the side-lines.
    Reading this book reminds one of the evil and despicable hypocrisy that inculcates the world we live in. The reality is almost nobody (despite much virtue-signalling and endless, meaningless bromides about human-rights) really gives a continental damn about Africa, but if they did they would learn from these recollections how it regularly offers rich-pickings for criminals and here I don’t mean to follow the bog-standard definition of criminality—I mean NGO’s, the UN and its associate bodies, churches, corporates, charities and organs of state from some of the most developed and civilised countries in the world. Barlow’s book throws a bright light on their antics on the Dark Continent and it’s sickening.

  2. ‘Gravy train is finished’: Italian city denies subsidized school meals to children of migrants

    The mayor of the Italian city of Lodi has ordered all migrant families to provide documents on their financial status including property they own in their home countries.

    Failure to comply could result in the loss of social benefits including transportation, and school lunch subsidies for their children.

    • Italy: Some residents unhappy as migrant children readmitted to school canteen

      Migrant children were readmitted to their school canteen in the Italian city of Lodi on Tuesday, after a controversial regulation from the city council sparked outrage for separating them from Italian pupils.

    • The mayor of the Italian city of Lodi has ordered all migrant families to provide documents on their financial status including property they own in their home countries.

      Failure to comply could result in the loss of social benefits including transportation, and school lunch subsidies for their children.

      If true, it’s utterly brilliant!

      Sort out the genuine refugees from the economic tourists. International record checks are a matter of relative ease in this Internet age. One might even think that foreign countries would happily cooperate as part of identifying exactly who’s abandoning their property.

      Meanwhile, back at the customs window, conceal your ownership of property back home? Well, that’s lying on your immigration form and a solid reason to deny all entry. Admit that you own a villa and arable land (complete with peons) back home? That certainly doesn’t fit the description of “destitute refugee”, now does it?

      Mayor Sara Casanova’s strategy is sound and well-designed. Let’s all hope that the EU cannot somehow dislodge her from office.

      From coe.int: “Intercultural City Lodi is the capital of one of the Italian provinces with the highest percentages of residents of foreign origin. One of the top priorities of the Municipal Administration is to promote policies for mediation of possible conflicts, as well as policies for the second generations.

      Innit curious how a woman mayor, in the midst of “one of the Italian provinces with the highest percentages of residents of foreign origin”, might mysteriously seek to rein in or otherwise discourage more economic tourists from arriving?

      In days of old, a few teaspoonfuls of lens-grinding grit in the oil fill spout would result in an engine that was impossible to repair or rebuild. Alas, now there are locking bonnets.

  4. The Gateway Pundit – Rep. Meadows Calls For Rosenstein to “Resign Immediately” Following James Baker Testimony He Plotted to Oust Trump From Office

    Congressman Mark Meadows (R-NC) called for Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to step down Thursday following explosive testimony from Comey confidant James Baker.

    Former FBI lawyer James Baker appeared on Capitol Hill earlier Thursday for the second time to testify about Rosenstein’s plan to wear a wire and and the use of FISA warrants to oust President Trump from office.

    Rep. Meadows emerged from the testimony Thursday calling for Rosenstein to “resign immediately.”

    MEADOWS: Based on additional information we’ve learned over the last week, it is clear Rod Rosenstein should resign immediately.

    He has not cooperated with Congress, failed to be transparent about his actions, and shown a lack of candor in the way he’s characterized a number of events.

    Rod Rosenstein was a no-show for an interview with Congress last Thursday and he continues to defy investigators’ requests for McCabe’s memos.

    James Baker previously told Congressional investigators that Rosenstein’s plot to wear a wire and oust Trump from office was not a joke as the DAG claimed.

    Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein last year spoke with DOJ and FBI officials about wearing a wire and secretly recording President Trump to be able to build a case that Trump is unfit to hold office.

    DAG Rosenstein began plotting Trump’s removal shortly after FBI Director Comey was fired, The New York Timesreported citing memos penned by then-Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe.

    It is unclear what James Baker said in his testimony Thursday that has Congressman Meadows wound up. The Gateway Pundit will update as soon as more information is available.

  5. Natural Female Cycler Calls ‘Unfair’ After ‘Transgender’ Man Wins Women’s Cycling Event

    by Warner Todd Huston

    A man claiming to be a transgender woman recently won a national bicycling championship in Los Angeles, but now some of the natural-born women he beat for first place are crying foul.

    Cyclist Rachel McKinnon, a man who claims to be a transitioned female, won the women’s sprint 35-39 age bracket at the 2018 UCI Masters Track Cycling World Championships last weekend. McKinnon is a professor at the College of Charleston and was racing for the Canadian team.

    McKinnon, who has been an outspoken activists for transgender rights, celebrated the win on Twitter saying, “First transgender woman world champion…ever.”

    • A man claiming to be a transgender woman recently won a national bicycling championship in Los Angeles, but now some of the natural-born women he beat for first place are crying foul.

      As the first chips begin flaking away from the edifice of Über-Liberal Hollywierd.

      First transgender woman world champion…ever.

      And so shall cyclist Rachel McKinnon discover the endless (and richly deserved) joy of having a Barry Bonds-style asterisk follow “her” around through the record books. This sort of “Alice in Wonderland” mentality of:

      “When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less.” “The question is,” said Alice, “whether you can make words mean so many different things.”

      Thus does Alice ever-so-innocently pierce lance the festering boil of classist sophistry which Pommy Toffs usually trot out to accompany a poorly concealed, pained expression as they conspicuously fail to avoid condescending.

  6. Khashoggi Murder Suspect Dies In “Suspicious Car Accident”

    A 31-year-old lieutenant in the Saudi Royal Air Force said to have participated in the killing of Saudi writer Jamal Khashoggi died in a “suspicious car accident” in Riyadh, according to Turkish media.

    Mashal Saad al-Bostani was reportedly on a 15-man hit squad dispatched to Saudi Arabia’s Istanbul Consulate in Turkey on October 2 during Khashoggi’s visit, before the team quickly left the country, according to daily Yeni ?afak.

      Nothing to see here, folks. Move along, now. I said, MOVE ALONG NOW!!!.

      This mysterious incident has all the hallmarks of a classic, ‘Jack Ruby – Lee Harvey Oswald dogfight’. How tragic is it that such an Islamic piss-fest must, nevertheless, become whatever iconography there may be for the wriggling, squirming, blanched and writhing wormish puke that passes itself off as supposedly legitimate Rule-of-Law (hat tip: Richard) in America.

      How I might adequately thank everyone at Vlad Tepes Blog for the opportunity to endlessly vent my spleen is something that simply defies all imagination. So there.

      Especially the supremely kind thoughts of so many good people at Vlad Tepes Blog who permit me whatever goodly opportunity to lash out against the mind-numbing insanity presented in all of the putatively “coping” with flat-out lunacy which poses itself as sanity. SANITY, as if!

      To all: Your general willingness to exchange my NorshRadisch cyber-currency of intellectual fisticuffs with howevermany barrages of ongoing (sometimes unavoidable) idiocy is something that I am entirely unable to give adequate thanks for. Take that as you will… please. I cannot thank all of you enough.

  7. First Lady’s Plane Has To Make Emergency Landing

    First lady’s airplane experiences mechanical issue, returns to Joint Base Andrews

    (RNN) – First lady Melania Trump was en route to Philadelphia Wednesday morning when her plane returned to Joint Base Andrews because of a mechanical issue, multiple media outlets are reporting.

    The plane was 10 minutes into the flight when Secret Service agents suddenly jumped up and ran to the front of the plane.

    Reports of smoke in the cockpit are filtering through media outlets from reporters who were on board.

    Wet towels were given to the press corps and other passengers to cover their faces because of the strong burning smell.

    There are no reports of injuries and the plane landed safely back at Andrews at 9:05 a.m. ET.

    After North Dakota Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp’s campaign publicly named some women as victims of domestic violence without the women’s consent or knowledge, some of the women have announced they are getting ready to sue the campaign.

    CNN reported, “The misstep has led some women misidentified in the ad to decry the Democratic candidate and question how their names landed on the list, with one group of women saying they are seeking ‘a lawyer who will take our case’ because the ad has ‘interfered with, or downright ruined, our lives.’”

    Three of the women, Shylah Forde, Megan Stoltz and Alexandria Delzer, gave a statement to CNN from a group of over one dozen women who were named by the campaign. The statement read:

  9. The North Korean Air Force: A Declining or Evolving Threat?

    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: North Korea’s nuclear weapons and ballistic missile tests during the Kim Jong-un era have strengthened the country’s military power, deterring South Korea, Japan, and, in particular, the United States. While North Korea’s nuclear and missile capabilities are rapidly improving, parallel developments are not occurring in the traditionally technical air and air defense forces. Plagued with aging airframes, technical problems, part shortages, and budget shortfalls, the North Korean Air Force no longer challenges the South Korean and American air forces.

    This paper examines the North Korean Air Force, analyzing its organization and deployment, aircraft and air defense systems acquisition, air defense and early warning capabilities, and aircraft production. Shortfalls in each of these areas have caused Pyongyang to develop, test, and operate an increasingly sophisticated drone fleet. While North Korea will not be able to build its own state-of-the-art aircraft industry, it will nonetheless find creative ways to strengthen its air force capabilities.

  10. The Incredibly Fake End of Elizabeth Warren
    A long pathetic narrative of lies, cowardice and fraud.
    October 18, 2018
    Daniel Greenfield

    Elizabeth Ann Herring has been many things in her life. All of them fake.

    She represented an insurance company in an asbestos case before becoming a consumer rights crusader. She was paid $350,000 to teach a single course before deciding to fight student debt. She was a Republican, then became a socialist, and then announced, “I am a capitalist to my bones.”

    She’s also the fake minority professor who plagiarized the recipes of a French chef for the Pow Wow Chow cookbook and killed her shot at 2020 with a DNA test which claimed that she wasn’t lying about her Cherokee background because she might have a 1/1,024th ancestry from somebody from Peru.

    Like a snake, Senator Elizabeth Warren has shed her beliefs as easily as her minority status.

    Warren went from being a Cherokee to the whitest woman in the Senate, the same way that she swung from her, “You didn’t build that” speech to, “She believes in markets. She loves markets.”

    The truth about Senator Herring is that she’s always been a liar, a coward and a fraud.

  11. Pelosi: When We Take Over, Those Who Don’t “Share Our View”, Will Suffer “Collateral Damage”
    October 18, 2018
    Daniel Greenfield

    Comrade Pelosi is already drawing up big plans for the House takeover. First the Kulaks will have to be punished. The country will be put on strict rations. And those who don’t share the views of the left will become “collateral damage”.

    All hail the revolution.

    “We owe the American people to be there for them, for their financial security, respecting the dignity and worth of every person in our country, and if there is some collateral damage for some others who do not share our view, well, so be it, but it shouldn’t be our original purpose,” Pelosi said.

    Plausible deniability and collateral damage in one sentence. Truly impressive.

    Or to paraphrase Barack Obama, “Government is just another word for how we punish those who don’t share our views.”

    There are people driving BMWs with Bernie Sanders stickers on them. Do they really think that they won’t end up as collateral damage?

    https://www.frontpagemag.com/point/271679/pelosi-when-we-take-over-those-who-dont-share-our-daniel-greenfield

    • Pay close attention to this one, Pelosi means every word, if she gets power she will try and punish everyone that doesn’t agree with her. We have known the Dems were like this for decades but until now they have worked to keep their illegal actions undercover. Now they are taking their masks off and showing that they want total power over every one, given the chance Pelosi will make Stalin and Mao look like moderates.

  12. The Trump Workers Party
    How our president is reviving an older more genuine liberalism.
    October 18, 2018
    Michael Ledeen

    Frank Buckley is a real original, and his recent book, The Republican Workers Party, gives us plenty to ponder. He is a political maverick, rejecting labels and stereotypes, which delights me.

    The title comes from Trump’s speech to CPAC in 2017. Which Buckley characterizes this way:

    The Republican Workers Party would be libertarian in its opposition to crony capitalism but economically liberal when it comes to welfare policies for those truly in need. It would be a party of nationalists who reject a globalism that is indifferent between the welfare of Americans and of foreigners. It would be a jobs party led by a jobs president…

    He’s a Trump guy, neither a traditional conservative nor an establishment Republican. He deplores the indifference both liberals and conservatives reserve for the poor, and writes movingly about “empathy erosion.” But unlike true believers of both Left and Right, Buckley does not believe that education, important though it may be, can overcome it.
    Instead, he sides with Pascal: “the heart has its reasons which reason knoweth not.”

  13. Jamal Khashoggi Cheered Hamas’ War on Israel
    October 18, 2018
    Daniel Greenfield

    If you get your news from the media, then you will have heard that Jamal Khashoggi was a heroic reform who sought freedom for the region, and was brutally murdered to the strains of hip-hop music by a legion of Saudi assassins. And it was all recorded on his Apple Watch.

    If you’re interested in the facts, instead of the fake news, you probably already know that Jamal Khashoggi was a Muslim Brotherhood leader an an old friend of Osama bin Laden.

    He’s being mourned by the media that backed the Muslim Brotherhood.

    And, as Jordan Schachtel has dug up, he quite clearly supported the Hamas war on Israel. Not surprising as Hamas is a branch of the Muslim Brotherhood.

    Here’s the media’s Muslim Brotherhood martyr celebrating Hamas and its genocidal war to wipe out the Jews.

      Jamal Khashoggi, a well-known Saudi journalist, went to the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul on October 2 to fill out some paperwork pertaining to his marriage — he was in the process of divorcing his Saudi wife so that he might then marry his Turkish fiancé. He entered the building at 1:14 p..m., and has not been seen since. His fiancé had been waiting outside the consulate for what was supposed to have been a short visit; when he failed to appear, the police were summoned. The Saudis at the consulate claimed not to know what had happened to Khashoggi. From Riyadh, Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman insisted that Khashoggi left soon after visiting the consulate. King Salman assured President Trump that his government had nothing to do with Khashoggi’s disappearance. Now the Saudis have decided to tell their latest version of the truth. They claim that Khashoggi died during an “interrogation gone wrong.”

      On that same day, October 2, fifteen Saudis arrived in Istanbul in the morning, and departed, on two different flights, the same evening. Or at least that’s the story. There are videotapes of Saudis arriving at the airport, but to complicate matters, it seems that some of those videotapes are five years old. Meanwhile, the Turks claim to have proof that Khashoggi was killed inside the Embassy. They say they have tapes on which the alleged audio evidence is particularly strong, according to officials.

    Hamas tests the limits of Israel’s patience.
    October 18, 2018
    Ari Lieberman

    On Wednesday, at approximately 3:40 a.m. Israeli time, sirens blared throughout the southern Israeli city of Be’er Sheva (Beersheba) shattering the stillness of the night. In what is considered to be a major escalation, Gazan-based terrorists fired a single rocket at the city, which is located approximately 25 miles from Gaza Strip. Miraculously, the projectile, which landed in a courtyard, caused no casualties but five people were treated for shock. Israel responded by hitting 20 military targets throughout Gaza. The Israeli Air Force also launched a precision strike against a group of terrorists in the midst of setting up a rocket launch from the northern Gaza Strip. The IDF later released video footage of the strike, which appears to have liquidated the rocket squad. The brazen and indiscriminate terrorist attack comes amid talk by Israel’s political echelon of the need to take decisive military action against Hamas, the entity that controls the Strip.

    This past Friday, Palestinian terrorists, using violent demonstrations as cover, placed an explosive charge on the security fence marking the border between Gaza Strip and Israel and blew a hole through it. They then charged through the newly created opening toward the direction of a nearby Israeli outpost. An alert female Israel Defense Force soldier of the “Nesher” battalion quickly detected the infiltration and guided a response team to the area. All three infiltrators were liquidated. An additional four Palestinians were killed that day while engaged in violent Hamas-inspired, anti-Israel border rioting, rioting

  15. VICE News – How a Former Neo-Nazi Found Her Identity as a Trans Woman

    For years, Dajana Pospis was a member of the National Front, a far-right, anti-Semitic, anti-LGBTQ movement that waged war on Serbia’s queer community.

    But during a stint in prison for racial and religious discrimination, Pospis came to accept what no one saw coming: despite being assigned male at birth, she was a woman—and she desperately wanted to transition.

    After publicly coming out as a trans woman, Dajana sought acceptance and forgiveness from Serbia’s LGBTQ community—but can her new friends make peace with her violent past?

    VICE met up with Dajana to hear about her unique and difficult journey from neo-Nazi to coming out as a trans woman, a move she said left her “caught between two worlds.”

  16. Trumpaganda?
    The eerie Trump Derangement Syndrome escalating in academia.
    October 18, 2018
    Jack Kerwick

    All of the Democrat talking heads in the media—i.e. 95% or so of the American media—lost what was little left of their brains this past week when Kanye West joined and applauded President Trump in the White House.

    Popular culture celebrities, like “journalists” and pundits, are overwhelmingly left-of-center. But one particularly famous among these, celebrates a Republican president—and Donald Trump, of all people!—and it is one celebrity too many for Democrats.

    Though no reader of this column needs any reminding of it, the fact is that academia, too, is a bastion of Democratic Party politics. Fortunately, there are some excellent campus watchdog organizations that regularly expose the ideological fanaticism that pervades today’s colleges and universities.

    The University of Illinois-Champaign supplies us with an especially revealing illustration of the politicization of education. Beginning on October 22, the school will roll out its new journalism course:

  17. Invasions With One Easy Trick
    October 17, 2018
    Daniel Greenfield

    The technical term for what Mexico and other countries have been doing to us is, “military colonization”.

    Latin American countries send settlers across the border. They set up shop here, sign up for every welfare program under the sun, and send the money back home to their families… and their countries.

    Some countries actually use these payments as a major part of their economy.

    President Trump has talked about taxing these payments to build a wall. But now he’s cracking down on foreign aid to these countries.

  18. Paid Democratic voter fraud ring uncovered in Texas

    Despite being constantly assured by Democrats and most of the mainstream media (but I repeat myself) that voter fraud doesn’t really happen, these nagging stories seem to keep popping up. This one, picked up by CBS News in Dallas, is a doozy. Four women have been charged with felonies in Fort Worth after the discovery that they were intercepting ballots, primarily intended for elderly voters, and filling them out themselves before trying to trick the intended voters into signing them. And it’s not just a few ballots either.

  19. Swastikas found in multiple locations in Manhattan, 19 swastikas painted on Jewish Community Center in Virginia

    “This is getting to be a regular thing — it’s in the air around us, in the country around us,” Yaffe said. That’s true. And why is that the case? Because of the Democrat Party’s embrace of hatred of Israel and Jews. The norming of Jew-hatred has happened more quickly than anyone expected, and has gone along with the left’s embrace of the fiction of “islamofauxbia.” Islamic Jew-hatred is in the Quran. And now it is the norm on the left.

  20. Police infiltrated terrorist cell planning attack in Netherlands
    https://nltimes.nl/2018/10/18/police-infiltrated-terrorist-cell-planning-attack-nl-report

    The police infiltrated the group of seven suspects arrested last month for planning a major attack in the Netherlands. An undercover cop made contact with main suspect Hardi N., pretended to be an “attack planner” for terrorist organization Islamic State, and helped the group to plan their attack and arrange weapons, RTL Nieuws and NRC report.
    After their arrest, the Public Prosecutor only said that “special means of investigation” had been used. Exactly what that entailed, will only be revealed during the trial against the seven men.
    According to the authorities, the suspects wanted to “make many victims” by committing an attack at a large event in the Netherlands. These “advanced” plans involved a car bomb, bomb vests and Kalashnikov AK-47’s. During home searches after the arrests, the police found large quantities of raw materials for explosives.
    According to RTL Nieuws, the group initially planned to commit their attack in August, but did not have their weapons ready yet. The police intervened few weeks later. Four of the suspects were arrested in Weert, where they were in a holiday home with the undercover cop. Listening devices were planted all over the holiday home, according to the broadcaster. The other three suspects were arrested in Arnhem.
    This suspected terrorist cell formed part of a group of 25 radicalized Muslims the municipality of Arnhem has been keeping an eye on for some time as part of the PGA program – the person-oriented approach to the prevention of radicalization and extremism. According to Mayor Ahmed Marcouch, the police were able to prevent the attack because the municipality informed the authorities about worrying changes in the suspects’ behavior. When the police realized that the suspects were well into planning their attack, the police decided to intervene.
    Hardi N., a 34-year-old Iraqi who lives in Arnhem and believed to be the central figure in the group, was previously convicted of trying to travel to Syria and join a terrorist organization. He is currently still in his probation period. Two other suspects were also convicted for the same offense.

    • The blond Dem is indeed dim, and she thinks that we are stupid enough to believe her. Laura is right this is a smear job by the left and we the thinking voters are sick and tired of it. The problem is that once the Dems lose in November they will turn even more violent, I know some people are saying they will step back and rethink what cost them two elections. Bull they will attempt to terrorize us into letting them take over.

    • This is an interesting study, and it shows that the US is headed in the right direction. It also says that there are enough progressives to keep a terror campaign going for years.

    • I don’t agree with all of the conclusions that he is reaching, they are to a large extent based on his own political leanings and to a large extent his lack of understanding what Modern Conservatives stand for.

    • Read the Michael Leeden article from Front Page Mag that I posted above, it ties in with the Tim Pool video but Michael understands the conservatives much better the Tim. What Tim doesn’t understand is that the Conservatives agree the most of what he supports, instead of reading and learning about modern Conservatives he is letting his liberal teachers BS taint what he thinks.

  21. 100 ISIS Terrorists Caught in Guatemala as Central American Caravan Heads to U.S.

    In a startling revelation, Guatemala’s president announced in the country’s largest newspaper that nearly 100 ISIS terrorists have been apprehended in the impoverished Central American nation. Why should Americans care about this? A caravan of Central American migrants is making its way north. Let’s not forget that Guatemala is one of the countries that bombarded the U.S. with illegal immigrant minors under Barack Obama’s open border free-for-all. They came in droves from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala through the Mexican border and for years Uncle Sam rolled out the welcome mat offering housing, food, medical treatment and a free education

    A terrorist could have easily slipped in considering the minors, coined Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC), were not properly vetted and some turned out to be violent gangbangers who went on to commit heinous crimes in their adopted land of opportunity. In fact, the nation’s most violent street gang, Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13), was energized by the barrage of UACs. The Texas Department of Public Safety even issued a report documenting how the MS-13 emerged as a top tier gang in the state thanks to the influx of illegal alien gang members that came with the UACs. At the time more than 60,000 UACs—many with criminal histories—had stormed into the U.S. in a matter of months. Tens of thousands more eventually made it north.

    Guatemala has long been known as a major smuggling corridor for foreigners from African and Asian countries making their way into the U.S. Last year Guatemala’s largest paper, Prensa Libra, published an in-depth piece on the inner workings of an international human smuggling network that moves migrants from Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Nepal and Bangladesh to the U.S. Individuals are sent to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates then flown to Brazil before heading to Colombia. Once in South America, the migrants are transported to Panama before moving on to Costa Rica then a central point on Guatemala. One Spanish news report refers to Guatemala as a human smuggling paradise because it’s so easy to get fake passports. A few years ago, the head of Guatemala’s passport division got arrested for selling fake passports to a group of Colombians, according to a government announcement.

    All this makes ISIS terrorists operating in Guatemala incredibly alarming. President Jimmy Morales confirmed it during a recent security conference attended by Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo as well as the presidents of Honduras and El Salvador and other Latin American dignitaries. Morales said that his administration has captured “close to 100 persons completely involved with terrorists, with ISIS and we have not only detained them within our territory, but they have been deported to their country of origin.” Several of the terrorists were Syrians caught with fake documents, according to Guatemala’s head of intelligence. At the same event, President Morales also revealed that Guatemalan authorities captured more than 1,000 gangbangers, including members of the MS-13.

    Many more probably make it into the U.S. via the Mexican border and a lot of them get released inside the country. In fact, Border Patrol agents in Texas have been ordered to release illegal immigrants caught entering through Mexico because detentions facilities have no bed space, according to a news report. Earlier this year Judicial Watch exposed a secret program—started by Obama and continued by Trump— that quietly relocates illegal immigrants to different parts of the country on commercial flights. Years earlier Judicial Watch uncovered a similar DHS initiative that transported illegal immigrants from the Mexican border to Phoenix and released them without proper processing. The government classified them as Other Than Mexican (OTM) and transferred them 116 miles north from Tucson to a Phoenix bus station where they went their separate way. The OTMs were from Honduras, Colombia, El Salvador and Guatemala and a security company contracted by the U.S. government drove the OTMs from the Border Patrol’s Tucson Sector where they were in custody to Phoenix. Some could have been ISIS operatives.

  23. Algeria bans wearing of full-face veils at work (memo, Oct 19, 2018)
    https://www.middleeastmonitor.com/20181019-algeria-bans-wearing-of-full-face-veils-at-work/

    “Algerian authorities on Thursday banned women from wearing full-face veils, or niqabs, at work, citing reasons of identification for the decision, Reuters reports.

    The country has been split between moderate and more radical forms of Islam since it was plunged into years of civil war in 1992 when a military-backed government cancelled elections that an Islamist party was poised to win.

    Most Algerian women do not wear the niqab, a custom imported from more traditionally conservative Arab countries such as Saudi Arabia, but the decision is likely to criticized by Algeria’s Salafists minority.

    The Salafists endorse Saudi’s strict Wahhabi version of Sunni Islam and oppose the more mainstream Sufi Islam that dominates Algeria and other North African countries.

    Violence has dramatically diminished since the war petered out around the turn of the millennium, but a hardcore of armed jihadist groups continue to launch attacks, mainly in remote areas.”

  24. Pakistan biggest importer of Chinese arms: report (tribune, Oct 18, 2018)
    https://tribune.com.pk/story/1828531/1-pakistan-biggest-importer-chinese-arms-report/

    “Pakistan accounts for 42 per cent of China’s total arms sales over 2000-14, a report by RAND revealed recently. At the Dawn of Belt and Road: China in the Developing World examines the country’s economic, political and military activities across the Global South.

    Since the beginning of the 21st century, China has been a key supplier of major conventional weapons to South Asian countries especially Pakistan and Bangladesh. Sales to both amount for over half of total Chinese total arms sales over 2000-14. Bangladesh amounts for 11 per cent of the sales, making China the world’s third-largest arms exporter.

    Probably the most notable Chinese sale to South Asia was the sale of JF-17 fighters to Pakistan followed by an agreement to build the jets in Pakistan under a joint venture: the Pakistan Aeronautical Complex/Chengdu Aerospace Corporation.

    China has continued to provide considerable military assistance to Pakistan including helping develop the country’s nuclear program. During the mid-1970s Beijing covertly assisted Islamabad’s nuclear ambitions to counter New Delhi, according to the document. This reportedly included the design of a nuclear weapon and fissile material.

    “In 1988, China agreed to supply and train Pakistanis in the operation of the M-11 solid-fuel rocket, with a 185-mile range and carrying a 1,100-pound warhead. The missiles arrived in 1995. In subsequent decades, China has sold Pakistan hundreds of jet fighters and signed agreements to sell frigates and submarines to Pakistan,” the report read.

    Besides arms sales, China has also held military exercises with South Asian countries – more than a quarter of their exercises between 2002 and 2014 were held with South Asian countries. Many of these exercises focused on counter-terrorism operations with Pakistan, India and Sri Lanka as major partners.

    Of the 24 conducted over 2002-14, two-thirds (16) were held with Pakistan. While the relationship with Pakistan is “quasi-alliance” in nature, China also held five exercises with India. This is indicative of Beijing not wanting “close ties with Islamabad to come at the expense of a confrontational relationship with New Delhi.”

    China continues its Pivotal Regional Partnership (PRP) with Pakistan in South Asia. The relationship has acquired greater importance than a simple check on India of late. According to the document, close ties with Pakistan, “the linchpin of China’s South Asia policy”, are based on three factors: ensuring China’s internal stability, balance against India and defending China’s burgeoning economic interests.

    Islamabad will continue to be an important partner for Beijing because of the conflictual future of the region. “Pakistan’s political stability and national unity is crucial to China, not only to ensure that Islamabad remains a counterweight to India but also because, as an Islamic state and nuclear power its instability or disintegration would send shockwaves cascading far and wide.”…”

  25. EU leaders fail to agree on ‘obligatory solidarity’ (ansamed, Oct 18, 2018)
    http://www.ansamed.info/ansamed/en/news/sections/politics/2018/10/18/eu-leaders-fail-to-agree-on-obligatory-solidarity_32b5eb67-5668-485d-a25d-80048f78e3bb.html

    “The proposal by the EU presidency currently held by Austria to solve a stalemate on the migration issue by introducing the concept of ”obligatory solidarity” has failed to meet with enough support among EU leaders at a Brussels summit. Reports were from EU sources.

    Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz, entering the Euro Summit meeting, said solidarity was preferable to “mandatory quotas” in terms of migrants, and that would mean “everyone contributes where they can”.

    The proposal did not meet with enough support, the source said, adding that it is unlikely that the Austrian presidency will try to continue in the same direction.”
