1. Outrage as ISIS jihadis to go to the ‘front of the queues for council houses and jobs’
COUNTER-TERRORISM experts have described Government proposals to re-intergrate extremists back into British society with offers of council homes and jobs as “mistaken” and tantamount to bribery.
Leaked plans for a scheme called Operation Constrain suggest putting returning jihadis at the front of the queue for social housing, and helping them into education or employment.
The project would reportedly target up to 20,000 extremists known to MI5, while Britons returning from former Islamic State strongholds in Syria would also be eligible.
The nationwide programme is due to start next year, the Mail on Sunday reported.
Whitehall said the scheme was part of the government’s commitment to “respond to the evolving threat in the most effective way we can”.
But former counter terrorism advisor Col Richard Kemp told the Telegraph: “I think it’s very much mistaken policy.
“When you look at the profile of many of the people who have been involved in terrorist attacks in the UK, or travelled overseas, they do not come from deprived backgrounds.
“If someone is inclined to be an extremist, you are not going to bribe them into not being a terrorist.”
Terrorism expert Professor Anthony Glees told the Mail: “You can’t bribe people not to be terrorists.”
And to show how wonderfully consistent Western governments are when it comes to selectively enforcing all laws and regulations against Europeans, and in favour of muslims and non-white people…
2. Frail Chicago businessman, 76, charged with the SAME crime as Jussie Smollett was fined and now has a criminal record, while the disgraced actor who cost the city $130,000 by refusing to admit culpability had all charges dropped
A frail businessman was arrested and charged with the same crime as Jussie Smollett, and admitted his crimes straight away to save Chicago police an investigation, but now has a criminal record.
Robert Racky pleaded guilty to filing false police report last month, after calling the cops in August 2018 saying he been carjacked. In fact, he had been booted by the city for unpaid parking tickets.
The frail 76-year-old, who opened the first rooftop club outside the home of the Chicago Cubs in Wrigleyville in 1988, was thrown in jail for two days before a lawyer posted his bond.
He couldn’t afford to pay the bail himself because of a slew of financial problems and was suffering from crippling bronchitis at the time.
Racky admitted his crimes straight after he was arrested and saved the city a lengthy investigation, but was still dragged through the courts and will now likely end his life with a rap sheet.
It was his first offense. Now questions are being raised as to why Racky was subjected to different standards to Smollett.

4. Minnesota: St. Paul’s first Somali Muslim city council member says criticizing his homophobic comments is… Islamophobic
(This may take multiple readings before the full gravity of this sinks in. Ultimately it appears to be an islam uber alles logic, that uses the word, “Islamophobia” instead of the Islamic version of the word, ‘Slander’, which means anything anyone says that makes islam look bad, true, or false.)
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – A St. Paul City Council member is being urged to resign for past anti-gay posts on Facebook.
Gay advocates from Minnesota’s Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party are presenting a resolution Sunday at the party’s convention in St. Paul asking for Kassim Busuri to resign.
The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports Busuri was appointed to represent Ward 6 in January.
Busuri says his Muslim faith does not support homosexuality and that criticizing his previous posts amounts to Islamophobia. He says he will represent all his constituents regardless of sexual orientation but won’t recant his past statements.
The posts came to light Wednesday after Busuri was the only council member not to support a resolution recognizing June as Pride Month.
In one 2014 post, Busuri said he was “going back to Uganda” after the country approved a law criminalizing homosexuality.
5. Special Forces frogmen fight ISIS gas tanker plot to blow up UK port by attaching mines to ships ferrying gas from the Middle East to Britain
Special Forces frogmen are searching for terrorist mines attached to the vast tankers that ferry gas from the Middle East to Britain, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.
Members of the Special Boat Service (SBS) and specialists from the Royal Navy are conducting the covert searches amid growing fears that Al Qaeda or Islamic State terrorists might attach explosives to ships in the Middle East – and detonate them when they reach the UK.
Giant tankers carrying millions of tons of liquid natural gas are being searched in secret while in foreign docks in a effort to prevent a horrific explosion, environmental disaster and, possibly, a huge loss of life.
6. No amount of attention on this story is out of proportion to its importance. A company that made billions, possibly hundreds of billions, allegedly helping people find the information they want to make the decisions that suit their interests, actually cheating and lying to people and directing information to them that suits their narrow agenda, that needs to be front page news till they are treated like any one of us who did that to our clients. And at the scale one would expect.
7. Former German Intelligence Boss Demands Investigation into Merkel’s Migrant Crisis Policy
Former German domestic intelligence head Hans-Georg Maassen has called for a parliamentary inquiry into Chancellor Angela Merkel’s 2015 migration policy.
The former president of the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV) said that due to the significant consequences of mass migration in Germany today and going forward, those who made the policies in 2015 must be held to account for any mistakes made, Nordkurierreports.
“If you’ve made a mistake, then you have to stand by it, even as part of a committee of inquiry,” Maassen told the paper.
He is not the first to call for such an inquiry. Both the libertarian Free Democrats (FDP) and the populist Alternative for Germany (AfD) have made similar requests but both have been rejected.
Along with rooting out those who may have made mistakes during the height of the migrant crisis, Maassen said that an inquiry could also put conspiracy theories to rest and possibly cool the social climate in the country as well.
Thank you Richard, M., EB., Wrath of Khan, Gavin B., C., and so many more who have sent in materials today and last night. There is more to come. It is time we had a closer look at the DSA to understand some of what we see around us. Perhaps later today.
Make it a skilled investigation in depth. While you are doing this watch your back,. who you let near you and check your car for explosive devices.
Anyone who voluntarily traveled to the Middle East and joined ISIS had to know exactly what they were getting themselves into because ISIS made videos showing them committing crimes against humanity, such as putting a Jordanian pilot in a metal cage and burning him alive while taping it. Anyone who belonged to ISIS is in the same category as war criminals from the Death Camps and deserves to be hunted remorselessly, captured like a wild animal, and then hanged by the neck until dead, with a bill for the rope being sent to their loving mothers. How could anyone not see that? They are all serious war criminals and they need to have their necks stretched not to be sucked up to. People who commit crimes against humanity must be hunted down and killed for the very love of humanity itself…
#1 What did I just read? Omg I can’t even finish that story.. It kills braincells.
#7 Wow! Herr Maassen better watch his back.. Some people may not be amused, better wear a bullet- and knife-proof vest 24/7.
