Trump replaces NAFTA and triumphs -- New trade deal with Mexico is YUGE win for both countries

WINNING!
President Trump won a major victory on trade on Monday, supplanting the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and replacing it with something far more beneficial. 
The new deal will help American workers and manufacturers. It’s also a win for Mexico. One of the most fundamental parts of Trump’s campaign for president was his promise to change America’s deeply flawed trade arrangements. 
These deals left us with massive $500 billion trade deficits—a huge drag on the economy—and devastated forgotten communities across America that are dependent on manufacturing jobs. 
Second only to the booming economy, Monday’s announcement of a deal with Mexico is the most visible manifestation of Trump’s fulfilment of his campaign promises. Last year, the USA had a large $71 billion trade in goods deficit with Mexico, owing in part to much lower worker pay. 
This new deal will limit Mexico’s ability to take U.S. manufacturing jobs by underpaying workers. 
Another key part of the new trade deal increases the percentage of a car that must be made in North America to qualify for lower-tariff import into the USA. This will be a major boon to American automotive workers and that industry’s domestic supply chain.

Campus Bans Sept. 11 Memorial for 'Bias' Against Muslims

Muslims Did This In The Name of Allah

From The Washington Examiner:
Administrators at Ripon College in Wisconsin have ruled that a Sept. 11 memorial cannot take place on campus because it may offend Muslim students. The private school cited bias reports that were filed during last year’s Sept. 11 memorial project, a project that was a part of Young America's Foundation’s iconic patriotism initiative which takes place across the country on campuses every year. 
The school's Bias Protocol Board said the project creates an “environment” where “students from a Muslim background would feel singled out and/or harassed.” As a result, Ripon students will not be allowed to hang flyers as part of their vigil to remember the victims of Sept. 11. 
According to YAF, administrators claimed that one of their objections is “because radical Islamist terrorism ‘represents a small percentage of the terrorist attacks that happened to this country, and they don’t represent the full gamut, and they show a very small picture of a specific religion or nationality instead of the larger viewpoint.’” 
“This attempt by Ripon College’s 'bias protocol board' to sanitize the truth out of remembering the anniversary of September 11 proves the necessity of YAF's iconic 9/11: Never Forget Project, as well as the need for bold YAF activists," Young America’s Foundation Spokesman Spencer Brown told Red Alert Politics. 
"YAF’s leadership in creating meaningful memorials on this important date in our nation’s history ensures that the rising generation remembers the 2,977 innocent lives lost. The administrators’ reliance on feelings rather than facts betrays their intention to cower from the truth rather than highlight the scourge of radical Islamist terror for what it is: evil.”

LOL: Anti-Free-Trade Trump's Hardball Positioning Forces Europe to Offer to Cut Its Automoblie Tariffs From 10% to Zero Percent (If the US Reciprocates)

TRUMP VS. THE EU: BATTING PRACTICE

Trump administration is accusing hundreds, and possibly thousands, of Hispanics along the border of using fraudulent birth certificates since they were babies


From MSN:
PHARR, Tex. —On paper, he’s a devoted U.S. citizen. His official American birth certificate shows he was delivered by a midwife in Brownsville, at the southern tip of Texas. 
He spent his life wearing American uniforms: three years as a private in the Army, then as a cadet in the Border Patrol and now as a state prison guard. 
But when Juan, 40, applied to renew his U.S. passport this year, the government’s response floored him. In a letter, the State Department said it didn’t believe he was an American citizen. Subscribe to the Post Most newsletter: 
As he would later learn, Juan is one of a growing number of people whose official birth records show they were born in the United States but who are now being denied passports — their citizenship suddenly thrown into question. 
The Trump administration is accusing hundreds, and possibly thousands, of Hispanics along the border of using fraudulent birth certificates since they were babies, and it is undertaking a widespread crackdown.

Macron Tells Denmark ‘No Such Thing as a True Dane, True Frenchman’


Macron can eat a big, fat Italian sausage and die:
French politicians have reacted with anger after Emmanuel Macron asserted that “true” Frenchmen and Danes “do not exist”, and attacked the people he rules over as stubbornly resistant to change while on an official visit to Denmark. 
The French president made the remarks while on a three-day tour of Denmark and Finland, where he is hoping to establish a “progressive arc” of nations supporting his vision of a globalised EU superstate, which would revolve around a liberal conception of human rights, ahead of European Parliament elections next year. 
Speaking before a gala (read: GAY-LA) lobster dinner on Wednesday, at which Denmark’s Queen Margaret was in attendance, Macron praised the Scandinavian nation as one which is “completely open to the rest of the world” compared with a France whose people he said showed a “Gaulish stubborn resistance to change”.

HUGE DEVELOPMENT SHOULD KILL MUELLER INVESTIGATION: Bruce Ohr Testimony Reveals Massive DOJ Corruption


The sources said Ohr’s outreach about the dossier – as well as its author, ex-British spy Christopher Steele; the opposition research firm behind it, Glenn Simpson’s Fusion GPS; and his wife Nellie Ohr’s work for Fusion – occurred before and after the FBI fired Steele as a source over his media contacts. 
Ohr’s network of contacts on the dossier included: former FBI agent Peter Strzok; former FBI lawyer Lisa Page; former deputy director Andrew McCabe; Weissmann and at least one other DOJ official; and a current FBI agent who worked with Strzok on the Russia case. 
Weissmann was kept “in the loop” on the dossier, a source said, while he was chief of the criminal fraud division. He is now assigned to Special Counsel Mueller’s team. 
The list includes several figures who have since attracted the scorn of President Trump as he decries the Russia probe and those involved in its early stages. Trump has been particularly tough on Ohr, given his wife Nellie’s past work for Fusion GPS, as the president alleges bias against him inside the department. 
Just Thursday morning, Trump complained on Twitter about Nellie Ohr’s Fusion work and exclaimed, “Bruce was a boss at the Department of Justice and is, unbelievably, still there!”

I saw this commentary somewhere. Thought it was trenchant:
IMPORTANT NOTE: BLACKMAIL WAS THE INSURANCE POLICY. the Russian Hoax was not originally devised to impeach Trump; it was devised to smear and then blackmail Trump in order to keep him entirely under the thumb of the deep state. 
After all, the deep state cannot impeach the POTUS, only the Congress can - and with a GOP majority in the Senate, that is very very unlikely. 
So, the "insurance" was to blackmail Trump, an effort entirely within the power of the deep state. JUST AS J EDGAR HOOVER DID TO FOLKS ALL OVER DC. 
That's why the deep state basically held most of it it in abeyance until after the election. (Hillary used some of it to sully Trump before the election and guarantee her victory.) 
This is why Comey visited Trump at Trump Tower after the election and before the inauguration, and why he told him about the dossier - to say "we got this dossier and wouldn't it be a terrible thing if it leaked?". 
But Trump basically told Comey to eff off. So, then the deep state leaked bits of it and have continue leaking it first in an attempt to get Trump to agree to do what the deep state wanted. 
After Clapper leaked it to Jake Tapper of CNN Trump still said "eff you!" and the deep state has been at war with Trump ever since. 
Because Trump refused to be coerced into becoming a puppet of the deep state, the deep state has continued their attacks against Trump and expanded them over time to any and all of his associates in order to handcuff him, and send a warning to all future people who might dare take on the deep state.......

China The Model: They're Treating Islam Like a Mental Illness

We Here, At Infidel Blogger's Alliance, 
Condemn Any and All Violence Against Innocents 

China Is Treating Islam Like a Mental Illness
One million Muslims are being held right now in Chinese internment camps, according to estimates cited by the UN and U.S. officials. Former inmates—most of whom are Uighurs, a largely Muslim ethnic minority—have told reporters that over the course of an indoctrination process lasting several months, they were forced to renounce Islam, criticize their own Islamic beliefs and those of fellow inmates, and recite Communist Party propaganda songs for hours each day. 
There are media reports of inmates being forced to eat pork and drink alcohol, which are forbidden to Muslims, as well as reports of torture and death. 
The sheer scale of the internment camp system, which according to The Wall Street Journal has doubled in China’s northwestern Xinjiang region just within the last year, is mindboggling. 
The U.S. Congressional-Executive Commission on China describes it as “the largest mass incarceration of a minority population in the world today.” 
Beijing began by targeting Uighur extremists, but now even benign manifestations of Muslim identity—like growing a long beard—can get a Uighur sent to a camp, the Journal noted. 
Earlier this month, when a UN panel confronted a senior Chinese official about the camps, he said there are “no such things as reeducation centers,” even though government documents refer to the facilities that way. Instead, he claimed they’re just vocational schools for criminals. 
China has been selling a very different narrative to its own population. Although the authorities frequently describe the internment camps as schools, they also liken them to another type of institution: hospitals.

Graham Describes Call He Got From Trump Immediately After His McCain Tribute


From The Daily Caller:
South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham revealed on Wednesday that President Donald Trump called him after his touching tribute to Sen. John McCain on the Senate floor. Graham spoke about McCain, his best friend who passed away at the age of 81 after a long battle with brain cancer, on Tuesday. Graham told CNN on Wednesday that he received a surprise phone call from the president — who had a tumultuous relationship with McCain — immediately after the speech.

NYT: “Dozens at Facebook Unite to Challenge Its ‘Intolerant’ Liberal Culture”


From the New York Times:
SAN FRANCISCO — The post went up quietly on Facebook’s internal message board last week. Titled “We Have a Problem With Political Diversity,” it quickly took off inside the social network. 
“We are a political monoculture that’s intolerant of different views,” Brian Amerige, a senior Facebook engineer, wrote in the post, which was obtained by The New York Times. 
“We claim to welcome all perspectives, but are quick to attack — often in mobs — anyone who presents a view that appears to be in opposition to left-leaning ideology.” 
Since the post went up, more than 100 Facebook employees have joined Mr. Amerige to form an online group called FB’ers for Political Diversity, according to two people who viewed the group’s page and who were not authorized to speak publicly. 
The aim of the initiative, according to Mr. Amerige’s memo, is to create a space for ideological diversity within the company. 
The new group has upset other Facebook employees, who said its online posts were offensive to minorities. One engineer, who declined to be identified for fear of retaliation, said several people had lodged complaints with their managers about FB’ers for Political Diversity and were told that it had not broken any company rules.
Interesting, we learned of this story at "West Wing Reads", which appears to be an official White House Blog, under the Trump Administration.

Bruce Ohr Testifies FBI Knew His Wife Worked For Fusion GPS But Failed to Disclose That Info to Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC)

Twice-demoted DOJ official Bruce Ohr arrived at Capitol Hill Tuesday morning for a closed-door grilling from House Oversight and House Judiciary members over his contacts with dossier author Christopher Steele. 
GOP lawmakers said Tuesday afternoon that Bruce Ohr was being cooperative and answering questions at the closed-door deposition. 
‘Ohr is not refusing to answer questions,’ Congressman Meadows said to reporters. 
The former Associate Deputy Attorney General told Congress the FBI knew his wife, Nellie Ohr worked for oppo research firm Fusion GPS yet failed to disclose that information to the FISC [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court]. 
Nellie Ohr also previously worked for the CIA and was a corrupt Communist sympathizer who spoke fluent Russian–both important pieces of information the fake news media glosses over. 
Ohr also said in his testimony that the FBI knew about Christopher Steele’s anti-Trump bias yet kept that information from the FISA judges as well.

That's The Wrong Way?



COUPLE COULDN'T CONCEIVE BECAUSE THEY'D BEEN HAVING SEX THE WRONG WAY FOR FOUR YEARS
Chinese married couple—who were desperately trying to conceive—learned they had been having sex the wrong way for four years. 
The young pair, whose identities have been kept anonymous, went to see obstetrician Liu Hongmei after the woman failed to get pregnant despite having sex on a regular basis, reported the Guiyang Evening News. 
During their appointment, the woman admitted that sex was “usually painful,” which prompted Liu to perform a gynecological examination. 
"The couple were very young, the man 26 and the woman 24. They were very healthy, but, despite being married for four years, couldn't conceive,” Liu said. "Their family was giving them a lot of stress because of it." 
The results were unexpected. Liu discovered that the couple, from Bijie city in China's south-western Guizhou province, had mistakenly been having anal intercourse rather than vaginal to conceive.

Islam, Cellular Automata and the Game of Life


From The Last English Prince:
A friend sent along this comment into my e mail. “You see Muslims as colonizers but they are also pioneers carrying their system with them.” 
The comment was directed against a comment I had made after reviewing a small portion of a book for Muslim children. I considered the author a “player”. 
Here is the deal. My journalism and research have evolved into the “Game of Life” – a Conway model in which there exists a “zero player game, meaning its evolution is determined by its initial state requiring no further input. One interacts with the Game of Life by creating an initial configuration and observing how it evolves, or for advanced players, by creating patterns and particular properties.” 
Early in my research I compared my observations to watching droplets of water form on a screen. Now – my theory base is more aligned with cellular automata and applications used for computer science and cryptography. 
Years ago I identified the Quran and Sunnah as “symbol, signal and code”. The initial state still exists. What remains, is observation. 
In an article from TIME Magazine (20 May 2002″ Michael D. Lemonick penned a commentary, “How Everything Works.”)  Discussing the theory of Dr. Stephen Wolfram he states, “… the success of his simple programs made Wolfram suspect that science has been heading in the wrong direction for the past 300 years or so. Instead of trying to write complicated equations for everything, he says, “scientists should have been searching instead for the cellular automata that correspond to what they are observing.” 
Islam configures around certain patterns. Recognizing the pattern within a children’s book is not that difficult. But these things continue to confound and confront the observer. 
The author of this blog remains faithful to certain principles regarding her research. 
Semper Fidelis.

SARA CARTER: Pentagon Whistleblower Exposes Trump Campaign Spy Stefan Halper’s Significant Ties to Russia “It Was All a Set-Up”

Pentagon analyst and whistleblower Adam Lovinger

From Gateway Pundit:
The informant, Stefan Halper, was paid a total of $411,575 in 2016 and 2017 for work with the US government that included spying on the Trump campaign. 
Not only was Stefan Halper paid over $400,000 by the Washington Headquarters, an $11 million contract was also granted to D.C. consulting firm Long Term Strategy Group– The firm is owned by Chelsea Clinton’s best friend, Jacqueline Newmyer Deal. 
In the fall of 2016, 12-year Pentagon analyst and whistleblower Adam Lovinger complained to his bosses about Stefan Halper’s exorbitant contracts. 
In May 2017 Adam Lovinger was stripped of his security clearance for speaking out against the questionable contracts to Stefan Halper. Adam Lovinger was dispatched to the NSC from the Pentagon following General Mike Flynn’s departure from the White House. 
Lovinger, an ally of Flynn, was reportedly removed by White House official H. R. McMaster. Adam Lovinger’s lawyer Sean Bigley told Sara Carter the Pentagon ‘refused to turn over a single page of its purported evidence of Lovinger’s wrongdoing.’ Lovinger’s attorney, Mr, Bigley spoke with investigative reporter Sara Carter and said “It was all a set up.” 
Via Sara Carter: 
Lovinger also raised concerns about Halper’s role in conducting what appeared to be diplomatic meetings with foreigners on behalf of the U.S. government because his role as contractor forbids him from doing so, according to U.S. federal law. 
An investigation by SaraACarter.com reveals that the documents and information Lovinger stumbled on and other documents obtained by this news site, raise troubling questions about Halper, who was believed to have worked with the CIA and part of the matrix of players in the bureau’s ‘CrossFire Hurricane’ investigation into Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. 
Halper, who assisted the FBI in the Russia investigation, appears to also have significant ties to the Russian government, as well as sources connected directly to President Vladimir Putin. Halper did not respond to requests for comment. 
“When Mr. Lovinger raised concerns about DoD’s misuse of Stefan Halper in 2016, he did so without any political designs or knowledge of Mr. Halper’s spying activities,” Bigley told SaraACarter.com. 
“Instead, Mr. Lovinger simply did what all Americans should expect of our civil servants: he reported violations of law and a gross waste of public funds to his superiors.”

American playwright Neil Simon dead at 91


American playwright Neil Simon dead at 91.

Some deaths are worth noting.

Last week, former Lynyrd Skynyrd guitarist Ed King died. He helped write Sweet Home Alabama, which was a defining moment in American music. He also helped found the band Strawberry Alarm Clock.

This week, Neil Simon died. He wrote plays I know almost nothing about, except for the fact that they made some movies out of his plays. Some of these movies were decent, and they starred people like Marsha Mason and Richard Dreyfuss.

Personally, when I saw Richard Dreyfuss in The Goodbye Girl, I started to get an idea of why people called him a great actor. That he could do a technicolor freakout like Close Encounters of the Third Kind, and then follow it up with a more subdued, chamber drama, like The Goodbye Girl, was, indeed, impressive.

And even though I don't care much about Richard Dreyfuss, or Marsha Mason, let's face it, a guy like me would not have paid ANY attention to either of them if it weren't for Neil Simon.

Neil Simon also wrote The Odd Couple. That was funny, and Jack Klugman and Tony Randall starred in the TV show. It was almost gay, but not quite. That's why it was funny, or at least that what a lot of people thought. Because of this it was groundbreaking comedy. That's the way these things work.

And so, though not all deaths are worth noting here at Infidel Blogger's Alliance, Neil Simon's death IS worth noting.

When Justice Is Partial

Aging Homo

From The Wall Street Journal:
U.S. Attorney Robert Khuzami took a few moments in his Tuesday statement about Michael Cohen’s plea deal to sing neutrality’s praise: “His day of reckoning serves as a reminder that we are a nation of laws, with one set of rules that applies equally to everyone.” Noble words, and they used to mean something. But a disparity of justice is at the heart of our current crisis of faith in institutions. 
Americans aren’t outraged that the Federal Bureau of Investigation felt obliged to investigate allegations leveled at campaigns, or that a special counsel is looking at Russian electoral interference. They are instead furious that Lady Justice seems to have it in for only one side. 
The country has watched the FBI treat one presidential campaign with kid gloves, the other with informants, warrants and eavesdropping. They’ve seen the Justice Department resist all efforts at accountability, even as it fails to hold its own accountable. And don’t get them started on the one-sided media. 
And they are now witnessing unequal treatment in special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe. 
Yes, the former FBI director deserves credit for smoking out the Russian trolls who interfered in 2016. And one can argue he is obliged to pursue any evidence of criminal acts, even those unrelated to Russia. But what cannot be justified is the one-sided nature of his probe.

Islam: A Historical Critique


HRW comments:
Jay Smith arrives at his conclusion in similar methods as the author of "Mohammed and Charlemagne Revisited", Emmet Scott. Scott argues correctly that the written records cannot be taken at their face value, and must be supported by archaeology. 
Smith also mentions "Tom Holland's "Islam, the untold story" featured on UKChannel4 - once, and pulled from second airing after fierce uproar from muhammedan community. 
Smith takes pride in the fact that his lectures instigated Holland's research and production of this video. Unfortunately, I was not impressed with Holland's documentary. Weak tea compared to Smith's daring thesis. On a positive note, Holland's documentary does feature Patricia Crone, linguist extraordinaire - often referred to by Hugh Fitzgerald at JihadWatch.org as well. 
After all this....I now must revisit Robert Spencer's book questioning whether that prophet ever even existed at all. I suspect he is also of similar mind to Smith, Scott, Holland, etc. FWIW...I've also bookmarked the following link from years passed at Ibloga...the origninal source link has since been scrubbed...

Julius Malema: We want to send a strong message to USA authorities just like we did with the Australian authorities. Stay out of South Africa’s domestic updates. South Africa is a post colonial country – with deep inequalities that were long designed by apartheid and colonialism. Our land appropriations program seeks to realize the idea of equality and human dignity. Through land expropriation we’re pushing the white people to share their land which was gained through a crime against humanity… Be that at it may, we must put it on record that Donald pathological liar Trump we’re not scared of you and your USA or Western imperialist forces… Donald Trump is not saying anything we haven’t heard from white people. In all the years I’ve been on record and said I’ve still to meet a white person who supports expropriation of land without compensation. So why are you shocked?… As for Donald Trump, I don’t have time for this nonsense. I expected this.
AND THEN THERE'S THIS, FROM MSN:
'We're prepared to die for land expropriation without compensation'  

JOHANNESBURG - Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema says they're prepared to die if it means South Africa will achieve land expropriation without compensation. 
The party has claimed that it's aware of white extremists who are opposed to the policy and are training as snipers in Pretoria to kill them. Malema was addressing the media on Thursday at the party's headquarters in Braamfontein. 
“They will kill us for that. There’s a group of white right-wingers who are being trained by Jews in Pretoria to be snipers…” 
He has also accused President Cyril Ramaphosa and the Democratic Alliance (DA) of colluding with AfriForum to sabotage plans to expropriate land without compensation. This comes after US President Donald Trump's controversial tweet. 
“The DA does the same thing. And the DA’s position is the same as AfriForum’s position. Cyril Ramaphosa’s group in the ANC has got a similar position as AfriForum.”

Feds Scramble after Las Vegas Shooter’s Girlfriend Lists FBI as Place of Employment on Loan Application; ‘She Might have Been an Asset’


From True Pundit:
Marilou Danley, the girlfriend of Las Vegas mass shooter Stephen Paddock, worked for the FBI, according to credit application data the Australian national reported as part of a loan application. 
That’s the same Danley whose fingerprints were found on Paddock’s horde of ammunition packed into unused rifle magazines. 
Publicly available intelligence obtained from consumer credit reporting bureaus show Danley claimed the “Federal Bureau of Investigation” as her place of employment. Interesting revelation. 
When contacted Friday, one FBI source said the Bureau “might have made payments to Danley but it is above my level,” the source said referring to access to the FBI’s confidential informant participant and payment records. 
The source said “bosses are concerned” with the new revelations about Danley’s financial relationship with the FBI. In FBI speak, Danley could have been a paid asset. 
And ‘concerned’ means folks are getting ready to cover their own butts if payments were made to Danley either before or after the massacre. 
Of course this bombshell Intel is coming from FBI sources in the beltway, not the corrupt Las Vegas FBI field office headed by Aaron Rouse. 
The same FBI field office that has not been able to pinpoint a motive for the Oct. 1, 2017 massacre that killed 57 people. 
Little wonder why the narrative doesn’t fit the crime if the person whose fingerprints are on the ammunition also happens to be on your FBI payroll. 
A YouTube video surfaced Thursday highlighting a database search with Danley’s apparent employment link to the FBI as reported by database giant Intelius as well. 

Perhaps a member of Congress can investigate. 
Who else can we call? 
The FBI?
GO READ THE WHOLE THING.

BY THE WAY,

This ABC news story from October 3, 2017, says, Danley "traveled to Asia" just before Paddock undertook his Jihad, er, I mean, Massacre.

The news story then says,
Travel records obtained by ABC News show that Danley, who uses an Australian passport, traveled to her birth country, the Philippines, two weeks before the shooting, on Sept. 15. She flew from Manila to Hong Kong on Sept. 22 and returned to Manila three days later.
Ok, fine.

But look at this passport:



This image is a pretty bad capture, but I see the word Parduan listed there.

This, from MapCarta, seems to indicate that Parduan is an area in Indonesia.



PARDUAN IS IN INDONESIA, NOT THE PHILIPPINES!

Here is a better image of an Australian passport:


Do you see how the city "Melbourne" is listed on the right, just as "Parduan" is listed on the right on Marilou Danley's passport?

I think that listing is either, city of birth, or of residence. Perhaps, someone can confirm what the listing is for.

If Marilou Danley was born, or resides in Parduan, then that is interesting, given that Indonesia is the world's most populous Muslim country.

And it would explain why the media has never discussed Marilou Danley's place of origin. Many people had been trying to find out if she was from one of the Muslim provinces in the Philippines.

We may have just gotten our answer.

UPDATE

Thanks to a reader, we get this CORRECTION:

Marilou Danley is frm the PAMBUAN area of the Philippines.
WHEN Stephen Paddock was preparing America’s deadliest mass shooting in Las Vegas, his lover Marilou Danley was with her “medicine man” brother in the Philippines. Marilou was visiting Reynaldo Bustos, 75, the family patriarch in an outer suburb of the Filipino capital, Manila. 
The Bustos family is originally from the poorer rural area of Pambuan, 100km north of Manila.

The Washington Post Says Trump's Tweets About Africa Perpetuate a "White Nationalist Conspiracy Theory"


The American Thinker:
Donald Trump is being accused of spreading a "white nationalist conspiracy theory" about murdered South African farmers. The current government is trying to change the constitution to allow for the seizure of white-owned farms without compensation. Even before that, white farmers have been alarmed at what they say is a rising murder rate. 
Washington Post: 
White-nationalist groups have for years spread false claims about the murder rates, assertions that have been widely debunked. Local police data shows the number of people murdered on farms has dropped by half over the past two decades – from 140 in 2001-2002 to 74 in 2016-2017, according to the Associated Press. 
Trump's tweet appeared to come in response to a segment on Fox News in which host Tucker Carlson railed against a plan by South Africa's governing party to pursue constitutional changes allowing the government to redistribute land without compensating the owners. 
The measure is designed to redress racial inequalities that have persisted for nearly a quarter-century after the end of apartheid in 1994. White nationalists in the United States and South Africa, where a fringe group called Afriforum has advanced the conspiracy­theory, hailed the president's remarks. David Duke, a former Ku Klux Klan leader, thanked Trump on Twitter and tweeted an image of a white woman holding a sign reading "Stop white genocide." Mike Peinovich, a far-right podcast host, called Trump's endorsement "very big" and said that "this is how we slowly chip away at the all-consuming anti-white discourse." 
Are white South African farmers exaggerating the threat? In truth, it is impossible to get any accurate numbers about murders of whites in rural areas. In a recent debate in South Africa's parliament, two different farm murder rates were shared. 
"The farm murder rate is 133 per 100,000," Freedom Front Plus member of parliament, Pieter Groenewald, told fellow parliamentarians. But 45 minutes later, the African Christian Democratic Party's Steve Swart cited a lower figure. 
"Whilst we have an unacceptably high murder rate in this nation of 34 people per 100,000, for farmers the figure is 97 per 100,000. Almost 3 times the average," claimed Swart. 
So when white South Africans possibly exaggerate the numbers, it is a racist conspiracy, but when the nearly all black government possibly downplays the number of murders, it is to be believed without question? 
The questions are simple. 
Are white farmers being targeted for death? At least 74 were, according to the government's own figures, so you would have to answer "yes" to that question. 
Are attacks increasing on South African farms? There is a specific definition of "attack," and police have been keeping track since the '90s. In fact, 2017 saw the highest number of attacks on South Africa's farms since 2011. Those numbers are down from the early part of the century but are on the rise. 
Is it really a "conspiracy theory" that white South African farmers are under threat? No one denies that there was a slaughter of white farmers in neighboring Zimbabwe when "land reform" (i.e., seizure without compensation) was instituted in that country. 
And it's no conspiracy theory that the black nationalist government of South Africa is eager to seize the land of white farmers. 
So Trump was parroting a theory that is exaggerated but hardly a fantasy. Perhaps those accusing Trump of promoting a "conspiracy theory" should ask the white farmers of South Africa just how safe and secure they feel in their homes today.

Victims of student who falsely accused them of rape speak out at her sentencing - SHE ROLLS HER EYES!


From The College Fix:
Nikki Yovino is getting a year in prison, as expected, for falsely reporting that she was raped by two football players at Sacred Heart University. At her sentencing Thursday morning, Yovino also had to face one of the male students she falsely accused. 
Connecticut Post reports that Malik St. Hilaire outed himself after a year and a half of avoiding media attention, because he “wanted to finally confront Yovino for what she had done to him”: “I went from being a college student to sitting at home being expelled with no way to clear my name,” St. Hilaire told the judge, as Yovino smirked just a few feet away. 
[The reporter also observed her “rolling her eyes” as he delivered his victim-impact statement.] 
“I just hope she knows what she has done to me, my life will never be the same. I did nothing wrong, but everything has been altered because of this.” 
St. Hilaire’s lawyer Frank Riccio read a second victim-impact statement from the other male student that Yovino accused. He is not identifying himself: 
The roller coaster of emotions; fear, anger, sadness, embarrassment, depression, anxiety and the list goes on. She accused me of what I believe to be a horrendous, horrific crime out of her own selfish concerns. I lost my scholarship, my dream of continuing to play football and now I am in debt $30,000 and I’m simply trying to get ahead as best as I can.

New York Post Writer: Facebook censored my column — and I still can’t find out why


From The New York Post:
At 7:55 a.m. Thursday morning, I posted a story I had written for The New York Post on both Facebook and Twitter. It was a reported piece on how people who voted for President Trump were feeling after both former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and his lawyer Michael Cohen found themselves on the wrong side of the law. 
Within two hours I started receiving a handful of notes from people who are friends on my personal Facebook page that their posting of my piece, entitled “Why Trump’s supporters won’t care about Cohen and Manafort,” had been removed. 
Sometimes the removal was accompanied by a message from Facebook. “Spam” was the most common reason given, but a couple of people were told Facebook removed the post because “it did not follow our Community Standards.” 
Immediately I went to my original post, which led to the link with this graph: 
“Right now the value of Trump to the Trump voter is he is all that stands between them and handing the keys to Washington back over to the people inside Washington. That’s it. He’s their only option. You’ve got to pick the insiders or him.” 
The post was gone. 
Why? 
Facebook had given me no reason why it would censor a story, and asking them for an explanation wasn’t easy.

Brooklyn Judge Swears In A Bunch of New Citizens, After Swearing In Tells Them to Take a Knee

Judge LaShann DeArcy

Brooklyn Judge Tells New Citizens After Swearing In to Take a Knee
“It is Judge LaShann DeArcy,” someone said. Her full name is LaShann Moutique DeArcy Hall. She is an Obama appointee, naturally, and she is astonishingly obnoxious. Talk about an entitled judicial activist, whose ego is as expansive as her name. 
Her speech to the new citizens, to the extent that I could hear it, was appalling. 
Sounding like a Democratic Party ward boss, she urged the new citizens to vote as soon as humanly possible. She made voting sound like a tremulous act of self-defense against the country they had just joined. The exhortation, needless to say, gave off a strong anti-Republican, anti-Trump whiff. 
Then she started in on some ludicrous riff about the First Amendment, encouraging the new Americans to exercise that right as robustly as possible, including by “taking a knee.” 
Huh? 
So here we have a federal court judge, who just turned a room full of foreigners into American citizens, and her first piece of advice to them is: boycott the American flag you have just been handed. It was depressing and infuriating as hell. 
In the past, a judge who dispensed such nihilistic advice to new Americans would be impeached. But nowadays almost no one in Congress cares and even fewer members would entertain an impeachment drive.

German Woman slashed — Syrian Declares in Court: “As a Muslim, I am allowed to”


From the Vlad Tepes Blog:
An allegedly 17-year-old Syrian was in court because he nearly killed a 24-year-old German woman in a brutal knife attack. The “refugee” Abdullah A. slashed the woman from her chest to her lower abdomen. 
He told the judge that according to his religion, he is allowed to do so. 
The victim survived only by a miracle. With the knife, the “refugee” not only broke the ribs of the victim Vivien K., but severely injured her liver, stomach, kidney, intestine and pancreas. The young woman fell into a coma. Her spleen and parts of the pancreas had to be removed. 
The crime happened in Hannover. In court the Syrian stated, that in his country it is normal to solve conflicts with a knife. If you are insulted, stabbing is permitted. In worse cases, it is also permitted to kill a person. These are the customs in his homeland, which the defendant insists upon. 
The defendant’s lawyer reflects what his client has said, “His behavior was not objectionable according to religious requirements. Abdulla A. does not understand why he has to be detained,” according to the Bild newspaper. 
His making statements of this sort show clearly why mass immigration of Muslims to Western countries will lead to a clash of cultures. Especially once the cause of this beastly attack is understood. 
The defendant’s brother and cousin were involved in a dispute with Vivien’s boyfriend at a supermarket — in which the 17-year-old joined. This trio first began to beat the boyfriend on the street, causing Vivien K. to intervene in an attempt to calm the situation. At which point, the offender stabs her and slashes her entire torso from breastbone to the lower abdomen. A 40-centimeter long scar will bear witness to it for the rest of her life. Abdulla A., who has to answer to the juvenile court for attempted manslaughter, describes himself as a “model refugee”.

REST IN PEACE

Ed King






 
Story I read many years ago in Rolling Stone shortly after the plane crash. When Ed King left Skynyrd in 1975 Leslie West (of Mountain) was considered as his replacement but Ronnie Van Zant didn't think he was good enough to replace King.

Deep State DOJ Tells Court it is Unable to Give Judicial Watch Requested Fusion GPS Documents Due to a “Glitch”

Who's In Charge Of The DOJ?
Judicial Watch is seeking the following from the DOJ: All records of contact or communication, including but not limited to emails, text messages, and instant chats, between DOJ officials in the Attorney General’s Office and Fusion GPS employee or contractor Nellie Ohr. The time frame for the requested records is January 1, 2015, to the present. 
On June 14, 2018, Judge Walton ordered the Justice Department, which had been resisting Judicial Watch’s FOIA request, to “immediately commence its search for responsive records and produce responsive records…” 
Additionally, Judge Walton previously criticized the Justice Department, saying: I think if it’s been almost, since December when the initial request was made more should have been done by now. 
And it seems to me if you have someone who’s going to come into office and they say they’re going to be a disrupter, that they should appreciate there’s going to be a lot of FOIA requests and therefore, should gear up to deal with those requests. 
So I’m not real sympathetic to the position that you have limited staff and therefore, you can’t comply with these requests. So I think you’re going to have to get some more people. 
On August 14, the DOJ wrote a letter to Judicial Watch claiming that searches were conducted up through December 2017, and no responsive records were located. The DOJ also claims that it has experienced “technical issues which may have affected the searches.” 
While at this time we have no indication that records responsive to your request will be located, we cannot provide you with a final response to your request until the technical issues are resolved. 
[Office of Information Policy] has been working closely with our electronic search support team to resolve these issues and to re-run searches as appropriate to ensure that no records were missed in the original searches. We anticipate issuing an additional response to you in one month. 
President of Judicial Watch Tom Fitton said he’s suspicious after the DOJ blamed a glitch. 
The FBI previously blamed a glitch for ‘lost’ text messages between FBI lovebirds Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. 
The DOJ also previously claimed a “glitch” was to blame for the missing documents related to the Clinton-Lynch tarmac meeting.

NFL Legend Jim Brown Backs Trump In 2020, Says Support Will 'Make Me Very Unpopular In The Black Community'

Nobody messes with Jim Brown. 
Comedian Richard Pryor, who famously caught on fire while freebasing cocaine, once joked that the same fate would not have befallen Brown. “Fire don’t mean s*** to Jim. Fire jumped on Jim once. He said, ‘Hey!’” Pryor joked, brushing the fire off him. 
Brown, 6-foot-2 and 230 lbs., dominated football as a running back for the Cleveland Browns back in the 1960s. And even at 82 years old, Brown is still a formidable force. 
Appearing on “The JT The Brick Show” on Fox Sports Radio this week, Brown said he’s supporting President Donald Trump in 2020. And he doesn’t care what the “black community” thinks.
