  1. Nooses Found Near Mississippi State Capitol Turn Out To Be Democrat ‘Protest’

    November 27, 2018
    A group of nooses discovered hanging off trees near the Mississippi state Capitol were not a warning from a white supremacist group, but rather a “protest” by leftists against Mississippi Republican Senate candidate Cindy Hyde-Smith.

    Mainstream media organizations melted down on Monday after a number of nooses were found hanging in the vicinity of the capitol building, strung from trees as part of a “message” campaign — though the Associated Press, which first reported the story, didn’t give much more information about the “message” the nooses were trying to send, only that it was one of “hate.”

    “Chuck McIntosh, a spokesman for the Mississippi Department of Finance and Administration, which oversees the Capitol, says the nooses and signs were found Monday morning shortly before 8 a.m. on the south side of the Capitol grounds,” the AP reported, adding, “He says the matter is under investigation, and he did not immediately know what was on the signs.”

  2. The judges that Obama appointed are at it again. This time, they blocked the sanctuary city law that Trump attempted to put into place. It is time to appeal to OUR supreme court.

    As part of the broader agenda to crack down on illegal immigration, President Donald Trump and his administration had set their sights on the various liberal-dominated states and municipalities that instituted “sanctuary city” policies that protected illegal immigrants from being turned over to federal immigration enforcement officials.

    It seems that Obama has his personal judges on speed dial. Everytime Trump makes a move against Obama’s “legacy,” one of his bias judges steps in and rules against the bill.

    Judge Edgardo Ramos, appointed to the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York by former President Barack Obama in 2011, ruled that the federal government “did not have lawful authority” to compel states and municipalities to either report to federal agents when detained illegal immigrants were about to be released, nor could they be compelled to allow federal agents access to question detained illegal immigrants about their legal status, as conditions upon which federal grant funds could be withheld.

  3. Alan Dershowitz: “These are not crimes. He (Mueller) has no authority to be a roving Commissioner. I don’t see any evidence of crimes.” This is an illegal Hoax that should be ended immediately. Mueller refuses to look at the real crimes on the other side. Where is the IG REPORT?

  4. Berlin Apologizes for Serving Pork Sausage at Conference on Islam (sputniknews, Dec 1, 2018)

    “The sausage containing pig blood, bacon and pork was served along with the other dishes, including halal and vegetarian options, German government officials claimed, adding that all food on the buffet was clearly marked.

    German Ministry of Interior issued an apology over serving pork sausage to the people attending the German Islam Conference in Berlin.

    According to BBC, the sausage in question was the so called “blood sausage” (blutwurst) which counts pig blood, bacon and pork among its ingredients.

    This development prompted journalist Tuncay Ozdamar to inquire what kind of signal the ministry wanted to send

    The interior ministry however insisted that the buffet at the event offered a variety of choices, including halal, vegetarian, meat and fish dishes, and that all items “had been clearly marked.”

    Earlier in March, German Minister of Interior Seehofer declared that “Islam doesn’t belong to Germany,” and that “Germany has been shaped by Christianity,” as Deutsche Welle points out.”

  5. WATCH: Sole German-Speaking Child in Classroom Violently Bullied (breitbart, yt/vladtepesblog!!! Dec 1, 2018)

    “A six-year-old girl, the only German speaker in her entire class, has claimed she was viciously beaten by migration-background pupils and even cut with a sharp object.

    Yara began the school year only to find out that she was the only German-speaker in her class at the Carl Anton Henschel School in the city of Kassel, with 95 percent of pupils coming from a migration background, Focus reports.

    Yara’s father told German television: “Attacks occurred, and I’m not talking about the usual schoolyard scuffles that I could have perhaps tolerated. It was daily attacks.

    “She was just pushed down by an Arab child she didn’t even know. This child slit her abdomen with a sharp object,” he added.

    Yara also commented on her experience in the classroom, saying: “I was really sad. Sometimes I had stomach aches. If I told my teacher I didn’t feel good the teacher would say, ‘There is always something wrong with you’.”

    The girl’s father noticed the change in his daughter and during a parent-teacher interview noticed that few of the parents of the other children spoke German and many even required interpreters, mainly speaking Turkish and Arabic.

    According to the father, his daughter finally spoke to him about the extent of the violence after she had been cut by another pupil. “It was the first layer of skin and there was a lot of blood,” he said.

    The father raised the issue with the school who passed it off as routine schoolyard bullying but when he went to the school board over the matter things began to change for Yara and she was switched to a new school.

    The bullying echoes other reports in German schools where teachers complain of “religious bullying” mostly from Muslim students towards non-Muslims.

    Hildegard Greif-Gross, director of the Peter Petersen Elementary School in Neukölln in Berlin, claimed that young non-Muslim children were bullied for simply bringing a ham sandwich for their lunch.

    Another Berlin school, Schoeneberg Spreewald Elementary School, has a 99 percent migration-background population, and incidents of violence are so high that the school was forced to hire security guards as violence was directed towards both children and teachers.”

  6. With food and bathrooms cut off, migrants begin exodus to distant shelter

    Tijuana officials cut off food, water and bathroom services to thousands of Central American migrants at the Benito Juárez sports complex Friday, prompting a mass exodus to another shelter 11 miles away from the U.S.-Mexico border.

    Conditions at the sports complex deteriorated to the point that it is no longer safe for the migrant caravan, officials said.

    “We can’t let these people stay here because this is a big health problem and we have to clear the area,” said Mario Osuna Jimenez, Tijuana’s social development director.

    Migrants aren’t being forcibly removed, but city officials said they are doing everything they can to convince them to leave voluntarily. That includes suspending essential services.

    “There will be no more food here, we will no longer allow people to distribute donations here,” Jimenez said. “The migrants must understand that we are helping them by having another shelter that is better suited to meet their needs.”

    • Tijuana officials cut off food, water and bathroom services to thousands of Central American migrants at the Benito Juárez sports complex Friday, prompting a mass exodus to another shelter 11 miles away from the U.S.-Mexico border.

      Put plainly, Tiajuana’s (and Mexico’s) message is, “Keep away from the cookie jar, you’re going to break it!” As in: “11 miles away” where the gringo goodies aren’t even within reach. No more rushing of the San Ysidro border-crossing and riling up those American troops (i.e., Trump).

      Of course, had this 11 mile relocation—along with suspension of essential services, food provisioning, sanitary facilities access, and halting all distribution of donations—occurred here in America, a hysterical mass media would be hurling shrieked accusations of Auschwitz, SS Nazi guards, Trail of Tears or worse.

      But—since this is the usual brown-on-brown internecine victimization—there’s nothing to see here, folks. Now, move along…

  7. Female Harvard student, 24, is ordered to move out of her apartment after her roommates searched her room and found legally-owned guns – because her MAGA hat made them suspicious

    A few weeks ago, I came back to my apartment from a weekend trip and was confronted by one of my roommates who asked if I had guns in the house,’ she told the Free Beacon.

    ‘After being told far too many lies to count, my roommates finally admitted that they searched my closet, under my bed, and all of my drawers in pursuit of finding my guns.

    ‘When I asked them why they were in my room to begin with, they each came up with completely contradicting stories (none of which made any sense), but one comment struck me in particular: “We saw that you had a MAGA hat and come on, you’re from Alabama… so we just kind of assumed that you had something”.’

    NR: This is the “New York Gun Store” mindset (i.e., Politically Correct vetting) taken down to the near near-limits of its granularity. None of which changes how all of this is about wrongthink and thoughtcrime. Notice that the roommates had little apprehension about illegally searching (and violating the privacy of) Ms. Pirnie’s legitimately contracted rental living space. Breaking the law to soothe their own too-easily jangled nerves, all because of a hat. Nervy little shites Cheeky bastards!.

  8. France’s Meltdown, Macron’s Disdain

    by Guy Millière
    December 1, 2018 at 2:00 am

    On November 11th, French President Emmanuel Macron commemorated the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I by inviting seventy heads of state to organize a costly, useless, grandiloquent “Forum of Peace” that did not lead to anything. He also invited US President Donald Trump, and then chose to insult him. In a pompous speech, Macron — knowing that a few days earlier, Donald Trump had defined himself as a nationalist committed to defending America — invoked “patriotism”; then defined it, strangely, as “the exact opposite of nationalism”; then called it “treason”.

    In addition, shortly before the meeting, Macron had not only spoken of the “urgency” of building a European army; he also placed the United States among the “enemies” of Europe. This was not the first time Macron placed Europe above the interests of his own country. It was, however, the first time he had placed the United States on the list of enemies of Europe.

    President Trump apparently understood immediately that Macron’s attitude was a way to maintain his delusions of grandeur,as well as to try to derive a domestic political advantage. Trump also apparently understood that he could not just sit there and accept insults. In a series of tweets, Trump reminded the world that France had needed the help of the USA to regain freedom during World Wars, that NATO was still protecting a virtually defenseless Europe and that many European countries were still not paying the amount promised for their own defense. Trump added that Macron had an extremely low approval rating (26%), was facing an extremely high level of unemployment, and was probably trying to divert attention from that.

  9. Florida College That Supported Jihad Jew-Hating Muslim Professor Upholds Christian Ban

    Universities are now re-education recruitment centers for radical leftism — anti-American, anti-Judeo/Christian — pro-jihad. Much the way Temple University this week stood by vile antisemitic professor Marc Lamont Hill when he called for the annihilation of the Jewish state.

    Why are taxpayers footing the bill for this? We are funding an army of idiots who are working to overthrow freedom and our very way of life.

    • Why are taxpayers footing the bill for this?

      For the same reason that the NFL and AFL minor leagues are financed by taxpayers in the form of college and university scholastic, athletic programs.

      In plain language: Because American taxpayers are some of this world’s most pampered idiots.

      Every year, billions of hard-earned tax dollars are flushed down the toilet of misplaced academic emphasis upon junior varsity sports. Why not let these multi-billion dollar professional football (and basketball) teams pay for their own triple-A system? What’s that Shelly? Oh, because alumni funding frequently hinges on that school’s athletic program performance and other arbitrary, moronic criteria.

      Otherwise, the money saved could be used to hire some truly qualified educators. Clearly, that is not a priority at this time.

  10. Iranian jet carrying arms for Hizballah flies directly to Beirut
    By Pamela Geller – on November 30, 2018

    They are not even playing covert anymore. They are preparing for war, and they don’t care who knows it. Iran is the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism. Hizb’Allah is its client in Lebanon. Hizb’Allah is Iran. And so one thing is clear: as these genocidal savages prepare for yet another war against Israel, this time they are doing so with the money that was showered upon them by Barack Hussein Obama. This is his legacy, his gift to the world. The blood of the Israelis who die as a result of these weapons shipments is on the hands of Obama. We can be grateful at least that we do not now have a President who is so bent on empowering the sinister and bloodthirsty mullahs.

  11. U.N. Helps Ship Hundreds of Caravan Migrants Back Home

    (AFP) The United Nations said Friday it had helped hundreds of Central Americans who travelled with migrant caravans towards the United States to return to their home countries.

    The International Organization for Migration said as of Wednesday, it had helped 453 migrants, including unaccompanied children, who had expressed the desire to return to their countries of origin.

    In addition, “over 300 Central American migrants have expressed their interest in returning from Tijuana, and IOM is coordinating safe and dignified means of transport for them,” the UN agency’s spokesman Joel Millman told reporters in Geneva.

    He said that a full 84 percent of those already returned to their countries were men, and that most had been returned to Honduras (57 percent) and El Salvador (38 percent), while five percent had been sent back to Guatemala.

  12. Provoking New Crimes Rather than Uncovering Past Crimes: Mueller’s Modus Operandi

    by Alan M. Dershowitz
    November 30, 2018 at 5:00 am

    The recent guilty plea of Michael Cohen of lying represents the dominant trend in Mueller’s approach to prosecution. The vast majority of indictments and guilty pleas obtained against Americans by Mueller have not been for substantive crimes relating to his mandate: namely, to uncover crimes involving illegal contacts with Russia. They have involved indictments and guilty pleas either for lying, or for financial crimes by individuals unrelated to the Russia probe. If this remains true after the filing of the Mueller report, it would represent a significant failure on Mueller’s part.

    Mueller was appointed Special Counsel not to provoke individuals into committing new crimes, but rather to uncover past crimes specifically involving alleged illegal coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian agents. No one doubted that Russia attempted to influence the 2016 election in favor of Donald Trump and against Hillary Clinton. But Mueller’s mandate was not to prosecute Russians or to point the finger at Vladimir Putin. His mandate was to uncover crimes committed by the Trump campaign with regard to Russia’s attempts to influence the election.

  13. There’s so much to get angry about in the Jeffrey Epstein sexual molestation horror. Where do you start?

    Read more here:

    Federal prosecutors identified 36. In “Perversion of Justice,” a stunning piece of investigative work by Julie K. Brown that was published last week, the Miami Herald reported that it has found 80. But accounts given by the girls themselves suggest there may be hundreds.


    We’re talking underage girls, some as young as 13, troubled children, children living in foster care, children of addicts and abusers, children of poverty and molestation, children who were homeless runaways, children who, in the early 2000s, were lured by promises of easy money to the Palm Beach estate of Jeffrey Epstein, a multimillionaire money manager whose friends included Bill Clinton and Donald Trump. There, they say they would massage him or watch him masturbate, perform oral sex or have intercourse. Epstein, they say, went through as many as three girls a day. Then those girls were sent to recruit others.

    And as retired Palm Beach Police Chief Michael Reiter, who supervised the 2005 police investigation into this crime, told the Herald, “This was not a ‘he said, she said’ situation. This was 50-something ‘shes’ and one ‘he’ — and the ‘shes’ all basically told the same story.” Moreover, the stories were backed up by a trove of physical evidence. Epstein could have been put away for life.

  14. ISIS claims 8 Nigeria soldiers killed in attack near Gamboru in the Lake Chad area (thedefensepost, Dec 1, 2018)

    “Islamic State claimed eight Nigerian soldiers were killed and 17 others wounded in an attack in the Lake Chad area in the country’s northeast, close to the border with Cameroon.

    In a statement released on social media, ISIS claimed a number of militants from its Islamic State West Africa Province affiliate attacked a gathering of soldiers near the town of Gamboru on Friday.

    It said the militants “returned to their positions safely.”

    ISWAP is one of two factions of the Boko Haram jihadist group.

    Gamboru residents told AFP on condition of anonymity the jihadists had launched the attacks on Thursday around the bridge straddling the border with Cameroon.

    The ISIS claim came a day after the Nigerian Army said in a Facebook post that it had captured weapons and stores during operations against Boko Haram in the area a day earlier.

    It did not mention army casualties…”

  15. UK: 608 Islamophobic Incidents Recorded in 6 Months (aawsat, Dec 1, 2018)

    “A total of 685 reports of racially aggravated incidents, with 608 being anti-Muslim in nature, were recorded between January and June 2018, a report revealed.

    The report published on Thursday by Tell MAMA (Measuring Anti-Muslim Attacks), a group which records anti-Muslim incidents in the UK, found that the majority of the 608 incidents occurred on the streets.

    The group said offline attacks make 45.3 percent of reported incidents, that means they occurred in-person between a victim and a perpetrator, or include acts of property damage or discrimination.

    However, the report found that incidents of an online nature totaled 34.207 percent, of verified cases in this reporting period, with the majority (59 percent) taking place on Twitter and the rest taking place on Facebook and other social media platforms.

    Other than publishing the general data on Islamophobia, the report also focused on the gendered nature of anti-Muslim hate crimes, with 58 percent of victims being Muslim women.

    The analysis reveals how Muslim women who wear hijab are seen as “others” in society and that due to the visibility of the headscarf, the stereotype that Muslim women are weak, meek and submissive is heavily enforced, thus allowing such attacks to occur against Muslim women more than against their male counterparts.

    “Such acts of hatred, discrimination, and racism are not solely the actions of violent bigots who exist on the margins of society – we must instead examine the everyday nature of Islamophobia which curtails the agency and mobility of Muslims when they access public transport, go shopping, are at work, or traveling on holiday,” revealed the report.

    In April 2018, the “punish a Muslim day” campaign saw Islamophobic literature that threatened violence against Muslims, mailed to Muslim MPs, mosques, businesses, and ordinary British Muslims.”

  16. 564,800 illegal expats deported in a year (saudigazette, Dec 1, 2018)

    “The number of illegal foreigners detained by the Saudi authorities in a nationwide crackdown that began in November 2017 has reached 2,176,517 as of Wednesday.

    Officials said as many as 564,800 people were deported from the country since the Nation Free of Illegal Expats campaign was launched late last year with the participation of 19 government and private sector agencies, including the Ministry of Labor and Social Development and the Passport Department.

    According to the officials, more than 1,686,891 illegal expatriates were arrested for violating residency laws, 334,373 for violating labor regulations and 155,253 for breaching border security.

    They said 36,318 people were apprehended while attempting to sneak into the Kingdom through its southern border. About 52 percent of the infiltrators were Yemenis, 45 percent Ethiopians and the rest various other nationalities.

    As many as 1,727 foreigners were arrested while attempting to leave the country illegally.

    The officials said 3,038 people were charged with sheltering, or providing transportation to, the illegal residents. They included 895 Saudi nationals, of whom 857 were investigated, punished and released while 38 others were still being investigated.

    The campaign officials said 12,926 violators were currently being kept at various deportation centers. They consist of 10,854 men and 2,072 women.

    The officials said immediate punishments were applied on 344,622 illegal expatriates while 312,185 were referred to their respective embassies and consulates to issue them travel documents. They said 379,691 were completing travel bookings.”

  17. Morocco’s CESE: Migration Fosters Growth, Promotes Global Solidarity (moroccoworldnews, Dec 1, 2018)

    “Morocco’s Economic, Social, and Environmental Council (CESE) has highlighted the importance of migration for the country’s economic performance, urging authorities to further the socio-professional integration of sub-Saharan migrants.

    CESE has established itself as a monitor of Moroccan public life, evaluating performances and making recommendations for improvement on various issues of public interest.

    In its latest report, “Migration and Labor Market,” the body drew attention to the situation of migrants, especially from sub-Saharan Africa, in Morocco. The report gave an overall positive reading of migration and migrants’ impact on Moroccan social and economic life.

    Calling for more steps to economically and socially integrate migrants, CESE recommended that government officials and “other stakeholders” espouse an “innovative” approach to make migration “a true driver” of economic growth and development.

    Instead of the general tendency to shun and scapegoat migrants, Moroccan authorities should approach migration as enabling national growth and easing international solidarity, CESE suggested.

    The report mentioned the necessity of “coherent policies” to ease the social and “cultural integration” of migrants.

    While Morocco has already put in place legal mechanisms to integrate migrants, true integration calls for “coordinated actions” between relevant authorities and labor market stakeholders to guarantee migrants the right to work and decent living conditions.

    Other CESE recommendations included government efforts to promote social cohesion and a spirit of living-together to combat suspicion and hard feelings between migrants and locals.

    The CESE report comes less than two weeks before the UN-sponsored intergovernmental conference on the Global Compact for Migration.

    The two-day event (December 10-11) is set to take place in Marrakech and will convene world governments—only about 10 countries, including the US, have so far withdrawn—to adopt the equivalent of an international declaration on the rights of migrants and asylum seekers.”

    “Security forces on Saturday killed a wanted terrorist in an intelligence-based operation in Dera Ismail Khan, said a statement by the Inter-Services Press Relations (ISPR).

  19. TLP leader Khadim Rizvi charged with treason, terrorism: Fawad (tribune, Dec 1, 2018)

    “Tehreek-e-Labaik Pakistan (TLP) leaders Khadim Hussain Rizvi and Afzal Qadri have been charged with treason and terrorism, Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry said during a press conference on Saturday.

    On November 23, Rizvi was taken into “protective custody” as security forces launched a crackdown against the religio-political party.

    “A large operation was launched in which all the institutions of the government took part,” said the information minister that all institutions and major opposition parties were onboard and supported the government decision.

    Fawad also thanked the media for its support in the operation against elements of TLP involved in anti-state activities.

    The terms for treason and terrorism may be life imprisonment and the case against the TLP’s leaders will be heard in an anti-terrorism court (ATC), elaborated the information minister.

    Referring to those workers of the TLP who were earlier taken into ‘protective custody’, the minister added they will be released after giving “sureties”…”

  20. Denmark to banish foreign convicted criminals to deserted island (thelocal, Dec 1, 2018)

    “Foreign nationals convicted of crimes and sentenced to deportation are to be accommodated on a deserted island, Denmark’s government announced on Friday.

    The provision was secured under the new budget agreement between Denmark’s conservative tripartite coalition government and anti-immigration ally the Danish People’s Party (DF).

    Foreign citizens convicted of crimes and slated for deportation under the terms of their sentences will be held at a facility on Lindholm, a seven-hectare island in Stege Bay between the islands of Møn and Zealand, Minister of Finance Kristian Jensen confirmed.

    “They will not be imprisoned,” Jensen said in quotes reported by news agency Ritzau.

    “There will be a ferry service to and from the island, but the ferry will not operate around the clock, and they must stay at the departure centre at night. That way we will be better able to monitor where they are,” he said.

    The facility will house convicted foreign nationals whom Denmark is unable to deport, for example due to being stateless or because no readmission arrangement exists between Denmark and their home country.

    Kærshovedgård Departure Centre in Jutland is currently used to accommodate such individuals as well as others who have not committed any crime but whose asylum applications have been rejected by Denmark.

    Kærshovedgård will not be closed and will remain in use for the accommodation of rejected asylum seekers awaiting deportation, Ritzau reports.

    The Lindholm facility will be used to house people with so-called ‘tolerated stay’ (tålt ophold) status, who do not have permission to reside in Denmark but cannot be deported, and rejected asylum seekers who have committed specific crimes.

    The Danish Prison and Probation Service (Kriminalforsorgen) will be responsible for the operation of the facility. Police will be present at all times and detention facilities will be provided for individuals placed under arrest to be held while they await further transportation.

    The centre will be brought into operation over several phases to be completed by 2021…”

    • Lindholm, a seven-hectare island in Stege Bay between the islands of Møn and Zealand… Kærshovedgård Departure Centre in Jutland…

      Kærshovedgård has been described informally as, “The middle of nowhere”. Lindholm probably isn’t a lot better, save for its proximity to Copenhagen. What you can be assured of is that both locations are freezing right now. I’ve been to Jutland and Copenhagen during the winter and know of what I speak.

      It is beyond strange that anybody from a desert environment would want to live in Scandinavia. Unless you have ethylene glycol running in your veins, wintering amidst the Frozen North™ can be a less-than-pleasant experience.

      Evidently, Danes are learning to take the (Social Benefits) “grant” out of “migrant”. And, although the official term is, “Departure Centre”, in urban conversations the word “expulsion” frequently arises.

      Speaking of things Danish, here is the Great Dane or Denmark’s Clown Prince:
