  1. Millions in Chinese Donations To Biden Center Raise National Security Concerns

    Anonymous Chinese donations totaling $22 million to the recently opened Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement at the University of Pennsylvania (UPenn) are raising national security concerns. The National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC) filed a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education flagging the donations.

    Federal law requires universities disclose the source of any donations over $250,000. According to NLPC, as reported by Newsmax, the largest anonymous donation from China of $14.5 million to the Biden Center came in May 2018. Even more money was donated to UPenn once Biden announced he was running for president in late 2019.

    According to NLPC, UPenn received more than $70 million from Chinese sources between 2013 and 2019. Of that amount, about $22 million was identified as coming from anonymous sources in China.


  2. Suspected Islamists kill 17 civilians in eastern Congo raid

    “Assailants killed at least 17 people in a raid on a village in the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo on Friday night, local authorities said, blaming fighters from an Islamist militia group.

    The army confirmed the attack in the Buliki area of North Kivu province, but declined to give a death toll.

    The Allied Democratic Forces (ADF), a Ugandan armed group active in eastern Congo since the 1990s, has killed more than 1,000 civilians since the start of 2019, according to U.N. figures, despite repeated military campaigns to destroy it.

    “Everything happened yesterday between 8 p.m. and midnight – the armed men carried out a raid,” local leader Kalunga Messo told Reuters by phone. “They killed our brothers without mercy.”

    Reprisal attacks against civilians have increased sharply since the army began an operation against the ADF a year ago, dislodging it from several bases near the Ugandan border.

    The ADF is suspected of carrying out an attack on Wednesday in which 18 civilians were killed.”

  3. Turkey neutralizes 6 YPG/PKK terrorists in Iraq

    “Turkish forces neutralized six YPG/PKK terrorists in northern Iraq, the National Defense Ministry said on Saturday.

    The terrorists were detected through reconnaissance and surveillance in the Gara and Harkuk regions and neutralized in air operations, the ministry said on Twitter.

    Turkish authorities often use the word “neutralize” to imply terrorists in question surrendered, were killed or captured.

    In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK – listed as a terrorist group by Turkey, the US, and EU – has been responsible for the deaths of nearly 40,000 people, including women, children, and infants.”

  4. PM Orbán: Hungary will not follow Brussels’ path – the future of Africans should be in Africa

    “In his weekly Friday morning interview slot on Kossuth Radio’s Good Morning Hungary, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán commented on Thursday’s Islamic terrorist attack in Nice, saying that the only way for Western Europe to put an end to these attacks is to enact migration policies like those which have been adopted by central European countries.

    “If we [Hungarians] don’t want to see cases such as Nice we must not allow them in,” Orbán said. “Apart from the few already here we do not want new entrants, especially not [illegal] migrants,” he added.

    The Hungarian government “must not allow Brussels to force on Hungary rules under which we should allow entry to people who we do not wish to see — and then go to funerals,” Orbán continued.

    “Despite all of the pressure, Hungary will not follow Brussels’ path.”

    According to Orbán, Hungary is confronted a difficult situation as it’s faces both external and internal pressure to adopt pro-mass migration policies from Brussels as well as the Hungarian opposition.

    “But we must persevere,” Orbán said, asking how those who promote pro-mass migration policies could “be so blind as to throw away the continent”.

    The prime minister mentioned that the Hungarian nation has 150 years of experience of living together with the Muslim culture, saying: “We know and respect the Muslim world, but only where it belongs.”

    “If you don’t want to adapt, the only thing you can do is to keep them out,” the Hungarian head of state insisted.

    Orbán also argued that instead of importing millions of Africans into Europe, that governments should work to help Africans create better standards of living for themselves in their own homelands.

    “The future of Africans, for example, must be in Africa; just as the future of Hungarians must be in Europe.”

    When speaking about the ever-worsening conditions in Western Europe due to the sustained onslaught of illegal migration, Orbán reminded listeners that “a certain Italian interior minister called Matteo Salvini” had effectively halted migration into Italy from the Mediterranean Sea.

    “It is in our best interest that anti-migration politicians rise to power in Western Europe,” the prime minister added.

    On Friday, it was revealed that the Nice terrorist, Bahim Aioussaoi, a 21-year-old Tunisian national, had illegally arrived at the Italian island of Lampedusa by boat on Sept. 20, before later making his way to France. It was the third major terrorist attack in France in just two months.

    Matteo Salvini, the leader of the populist League party in Italy, took to Twitter to has call for Italy’s interior minister to resign over failing to prevent the terrorist attack.

    “If the Nice attacker is confirmed to land in Lampedusa in September, pass through Bari and then escape, we ask for the resignation of the Minister of the Interior Lamorgese,” wrote Salvini on Twitter.

    It remains unclear how the terrorist managed to leave Lampedusa or reach France, but he was issued an order to leave Italy within seven days which he ignored. He then traveled illegally to France without being stopped by police.”

  5. Trying to gauge the police assessment of potential election violence? Here BHPD is up-front about a week of planned street closures and teaming with a sister police department for back-up, as well as having private security on tap.

    The twitter feed indicates street closures have even started for Halloween. Compare the response of this municipality of 40,000 souls to the reaction of other places, where shop-keepers are boarding up without having received any assurance from local law enforcement. There is something to be said for customer service in government service and having supportive judges and voters. (During the ’92 LA riots, BH police used their vehicles to block some (public) road’s entry points from LA into the small city, which slowed down the looters, minimizing broken glass and theft. At that time, looters made stores into literal drive-throughs.)
