All of us, every single man, woman, and child on the face of the Earth were born with the same unalienable rights; to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. And, if the governments of the world can't get that through their thick skulls, then, regime change will be necessary.
German Finance Minister Olaf Scholz on Wednesday proposed that France give up its permanent seat on the UN Security Council and turn it into an EU seat, attracting a stinging French rebuke.
In a wide-ranging speech on the future of Europe, Scholz said that giving the European Union a spot on the Security Council would allow the bloc to speak “with one voice” on the global stage.
“We could perhaps imagine that in the medium term the French seat becomes an EU seat,” said Scholz, who is also Germany’s vice-chancellor.Germany has not changed.
In a wide-ranging, exclusive interview with The Post, President Trump said Wednesday that if House Democrats launched probes into his administration — which he called “presidential harassment” — they’d pay a heavy price.
“If they go down the presidential harassment track, if they want go and harass the president and the administration, I think that would be the best thing that would happen to me. I’m a counter-puncher and I will hit them so hard they’d never been hit like that,” he said during a 36-minute Oval Office sitdown.
The commander-in-chief said he could declassify FISA warrant applications and other documents from Robert Mueller’s probe — and predicted the disclosure would expose the FBI, the Justice Department and the Clinton campaign as being in cahoots to set him up.
“I think that would help my campaign. If they want to play tough, I will do it. They will see how devastating those pages are.” But Trump told The Post he wanted to save the documents until they were needed.
“It’s much more powerful if I do it then,” Trump said, “because if we had done it already, it would already be yesterday’s news.”
Trump revealed his playbook just as Democrats are set to take over House committees in January where they are poised to investigate his potential business conflicts of interests, tax returns, Russia dealings and more.GO READ THE WHOLE THING.
A chapel in Linz, Austria, is set to blast out the Muslim call to prayer each day throughout the Christmas period as part of an “art installation” aimed at emphasising “that Islam is a religion of peace.”
At certain times each day between December 2nd and 23rd, people strolling through the centre of Linz will be treated to “a special kind of audiovisual experience,” when recordings of muezzin calls, which were taped in Algeria, Mozambique, Istanbul, and Singapore, are played from the chapel of the Upper Austrian Cultural Quarter’s Ursuline Church.
The organisers behind ‘ADHINA’ say the installation “succeeds in linking the aesthetics of different realms of reality,” when visitors hear “the muezzin call as an Islamic ritual” melding together with “the everyday sounds of a secular-urban world,”, as they walk past the “Christian sacral architecture” at the site, where the baroque buildings were founded as a monastery.
By staging this “acoustic intervention” during Advent, when Austrians are preparing for Christmas, the ‘sound artists’ behind the project, Werner Puntigam and Klaus Hollinetz, “want to create awareness that Islam and Christianity are religions of peace or want to be,” according to promotional material for the project.GO READ THE WHOLE THING.
According to the left-wing The Forward, the Islamic group Celebrate Mercy has already funneled $155,000 — of over $238,634 that was raised supposedly for the victims of the shooting and the greater Jewish community of Pittsburgh — into the Islamic Center of Pittsburgh. Though the Forward article states that a document was posted signed by a representative of Celebrate Mercy, the director of the Islamic Center, and a “Tree of Life representative detailing exactly how the funds will be distributed to victims and their families,” the link to the document is dead.
As for the remaining $83,634, raised above the fundraiser’s $150,000 goal, it will go toward the vague goal of “projects that help foster Muslim-Jewish collaboration, dialogue, and solidarity,” Celebrate Mercy director Tarek El-Messidi told The Forward.AND THEN THERE'S THIS:
I clicked on the link about slavery. There, one can download a book titled Islam and Slavery by Mirza Bashir Ahmad. Apparently, 77 pages are required to explain how Islam "ended" slavery. Initially, we get a few inane and specific reasons for the possible liberation of a slave. For example, on page 15:•Prophet Muhammad (sa) killed exactly 0 people & fought to defend universal religious freedom: https://t.co/Zx3o1zEtbb— Qasim Rashid, Esq. (@MuslimIQ) 26 November 2018
•He & Ayesha (rz) married when she was of age: https://t.co/ddLpShMvdV
•He ended slavery in a generation: https://t.co/8ZSiK5J80g
Read facts, not propaganda. https://t.co/R18b8cCWG2
"Asma, daughter of Abu Bakar (first Successor of the Holy Prophet), reports that the Holy Prophet ordered the setting free of slaves on the occasion of solar eclipses."Surprisingly, we actually get Islamic law on page 17:
[...] it was necessary that there should be some sure and permanent means of securing the freedom of the existing slaves. To achieve that end Islam introduced a system known as Mukatubat. By this system, the master was bound to set free a slave who had made himself qualified for emancipation [...] on condition of the latter's earning or procuring a reasonable amount of money.So, zero solar eclipses and no money? Tough luck, slave, you're still owned.
Does not the white man of America practically treat his emancipated black slave as worse than even the meanest of slaves in the world? Does the emancipated "nigger" look upon himself as really free in America? Certainly the relations between the white emancipators and emancipated blacks in America are the worst specimen of inter-class relations found in the world.The poor "niggers" in the US are treated worse than how Muslims treat their black slaves in Africa. Surely, the beaten, naked, and chained blacks in Libya are counting their blessings: Oh, at least, I'm not in America!
IF there is any teaching of Islam which may be represented as sanctioning slavery, it is its teachings with regard to the prisoners of war.Hello ISIS!
IT has been objected that the Holy Prophet by permitting Muslims to form conjugal relations with their female slaves has opened the door of self-indulgence to his followers.Yeah, Muhammad with his filthy followers slaughtered non-Muslim tribes and took their women and children as sex-slaves. Muslim savages have continued with that tradition for the last fourteen hundred years.
The man reportedly insulted a group of Jewish people leaving the synagogue before he got into his vehicle and attempted to run them over, the Los Angeles Police Department told the local NBC affiliate.
The suspect's car crashed into another vehicle. No one was injured during the incident, according to NBC Los Angeles.
Mohammed, who was charged with assault with a deadly weapon with a vehicle, is reportedly being held on $55,000 bail.
"Why he chose us? Probably because of the yarmulkes on our heads," one of the people targeted, who asked to remain anonymous, told CBS Los Angeles.
There has been an increase in anti-Semitic hate incidents in recent years, with an almost 37 percent spike in anti-Semitic hate crimes in 2017, according to the FBI in a recent report.
A second security video shows the driver reversing and trying to hit them again. “He clearly was going at us and it was even more clear on round two,” said the victim.
It happened on La Brea in Hancock Park, on a corner with a couple synagogues and on the Sabbath where many walk around in traditional attire.
In fact, a witness snapped a picture of a Quran on Mohammed’s dashboard (screenshot below) and the media was still cautious to call this an act of terror because his ‘religion is still unknown.’
The Trump administration has won the support of Mexico's incoming government for a plan to remake U.S. border policy by requiring asylum seekers to wait in Mexico while their claims move through U.S. courts, according to Mexican officials and senior members of president-elect Andrés Manuel López Obrador's transition team.
The agreement would break with long-standing asylum rules and place a formidable new barrier in the path of Central American migrants attempting to reach the United States and escape poverty and violence.
By reaching the accord, the Trump administration has also overcome Mexico's historic reticence to deepen cooperation with the United States on an issue widely seen here as America's problem.
According to outlines of the plan, known as Remain in Mexico, asylum applicants at the border will have to stay in Mexico while their cases are processed, potentially ending the system Trump decries as "catch and release" that has until now generally allowed those seeking refuge to wait on safer U.S. soil.
For now, we have agreed to this policy of Remain in Mexico," said Olga Sánchez Cordero, Mexico's incoming interior minister, the top domestic policy official for López Obrador, who takes office Dec. 1. In an interview with The Washington Post, she called it a "short-term solution."
"The medium- and long-term solution is that people don't migrate," Sánchez Cordero said. "Mexico has open arms and everything, but imagine, one caravan after another after another, that would also be a problem for us."
China’s plan to judge each of its 1.3 billion people based on their social behavior is moving a step closer to reality, with Beijing set to adopt a lifelong points program by 2021 that assigns personalized ratings for each resident.
The capital city will pool data from several departments to reward and punish some 22 million citizens based on their actions and reputations by the end of 2020, according to a plan posted on the Beijing municipal government’s website on Monday.
Those with better so-called social credit will get “green channel” benefits while those who violate laws will find life more difficult.
The Beijing project will improve blacklist systems so that those deemed untrustworthy will be “unable to move even a single step,” according to the government’s plan. Xinhua reported on the proposal Tuesday, while the report posted on the municipal government’s website is dated July 18.
China has long experimented with systems that grade its citizens, rewarding good behavior with streamlined services while punishing bad actions with restrictions and penalties. Critics say such moves are fraught with risks and could lead to systems that reduce humans to little more than a report card.Facebook and Twitter do this to people already.
LONDON, England, November 21, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – A Christian parent confronted the governors of her child’s primary school about treatment she and her son received after she objected to the school’s mandatory homosexual “Pride Day” celebrations.
That treatment included being barred from entering her five-year-old’s school to discuss the kindergartener being given four hours of detention after his mother’s objections to the LGBT event were made known.
Izoduwa Adhedo was one of a group of parents who complained that their children, pupils at Heavers Farm Primary School in South East London, were compelled to take part in the June 29, 2018 “Proud to be Me” event.
According to a statement released by the UK’s Christian Legal Centre (CLC), some of these parents, including Mrs. Adhedo, say that they were treated “dismissively” and “victimised” after their objections.
CLC’s Robert Kiska told LifeSiteNews that when Adhedo met with Susan Papas, the principal, or “headteacher,” on September 19 to discuss her concerns, she was confronted by a teacher – the principal’s daughter – wearing an aggressively pro-LGBT T-shirt.
The t-shirt asked, “‘Why be racist, sexist, homophobic or transphobic, when you can just be quiet?’”GO READ THE WHOLE THING.
Minister Szijjarto: We absolutely support the right of a country to determine who they want to let in and what kind of a country they would like to be… Migrants disrespect your borders. They violate your laws. They attack your police. They cause injuries to your police.
Amanpour: Your prime minister, Prime Minister Orban has repeatedly said that his main aim is to preserve “Christian Hungary.” And you said we don’t accept that multi-culturalism is a value by itself. Less than 2% of Hungarians were born outside the country. It’s weird, that kind of language. It’s very out of step…
Szijjarto: No, it’s honest… We’ve been a Christian country for a millennium. And I really don’t understand why it’s bad news that we don’t want to change that. And I don’t understand why it is bad or unacceptable as to why we want to stick to our history.
“We do not have Obama judges or Trump judges, Bush judges or Clinton judges,” U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts lectured the president this week in a prepared statement. “What we have is an extraordinary group of dedicated judges doing their level best to do equal right to those appearing before them. That independent judiciary is something we should all be thankful for.”
The rebuke came in response to the president dismissing the ruling of an “Obama judge” on the Trump administration’s immigration policies.
“Sorry Chief Justice John Roberts, but you do indeed have ‘Obama judges,’ and they have a much different point of view than the people who are charged with the safety of our country,” Trump fired back. “It would be great if the 9th Circuit was indeed an ‘independent judiciary,’ but if it is why are so many opposing view (on Border and Safety) cases filed there, and why are a vast number of those cases overturned. Please study the numbers, they are shocking. We need protection and security—these rulings are making our country unsafe! Very dangerous and unwise!”
In lecturing the president as though he had transgressed norms, John Roberts violated one. The unusual aspect of the exchange involved a member of the court delving into politics. Presidents, long before Trump, criticized, attacked, and even questioned the court possessing the right to deem acts by the legislative and executive branches unconstitutional.GO READ THE WHOLE THING.
More nations are joining the exodus from the United Nations’ (UN) controversial compact on mass migration, with legal experts now standing up to raise concerns about the drafting of the document and what legal implications signing it might have for countries party to the pact.
President Donald Trump was the first to pull out of the UN pact on migration in December 2017, a move which prompted howls of disapproval from both the mainstream media and globalist leaders.
Yet several nations from all over the world have outright withdrawn from the compact since initially ratifying it in July, or have signalled their intent to do so, as states gain confidence in opposing fashionable but dangerous deals that are not in their own interests.
In comments that cut across the grain of the usual business and practice of the United Nations, President Trump said at the body’s New York headquarters in September: “Migration should not be governed by an international body unaccountable to our own citizens.
“Ultimately, the only long-term solution to the migration crisis is to help people build more hopeful futures in their home countries. Make their countries great again.”
Australia, Israel, and Poland are among the latest to pull out, all citing national interest reasons.
Australian Prime Minister Scott Morris remarked Wednesday that the agreement is “inconsistent” with his nation’s best interest, and that the document “fails to adequately distinguish between people who enter Australia illegally and those who come to Australia the right way”, noting the frequent observation that the paper does not differentiate between legal and illegal migration.
President Trump on Thursday threatened to close off the southern border, telling reporters that he would “close entry into the country” if immigration gets “uncontrollable.”
“If we find that it gets to a level where we’re going to lose control or people are going to start getting hurt, we will close entry into the country for a period of time until we can get it under control,” he said.
Trump added that he meant the “whole border,” though he appeared to be referring only to the southern border.
“We’re either going to have a border or we’re not,” he said, adding that Mexico wouldn’t “be able to sell their cars” into the U.S. Trump also claimed that the U.S. closed the border earlier this week, though it was unclear what he was referring to.
Earlier this week traffic lanes near a key port of entry in San Diego were temporarily shut down. “Two days ago, we closed the border. We actually just closed it,” Trump said. “We said, ‘Nobody’s coming in.’ Because it’s out of control.”
Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said Monday that the lanes were shut down because a large number of migrants were planning to “rush the border.”AND THEN THERE'S THIS:
In a major blow to the federal government, a judge in Detroit has declared America’s female genital mutilation law unconstitutional, thereby dismissing the key charges against two Michigan doctors and six others accused of subjecting at least nine minor girls to the cutting procedure in the nation’s first FGM case.
The historic case involves minor girls from Michigan, Illinois and Minnesota, including some who cried, screamed and bled during the procedure and one who was given Valium ground in liquid Tylenol to keep her calm, court records show.
The judge’s ruling also dismissed charges against three mothers, including two Minnesota women whom prosecutors said tricked their 7 -year-old daughters into thinking they were coming to metro Detroit for a girls’ weekend, but instead had their genitals cut at a Livonia clinic as part of a religious procedure.
U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman concluded that “as despicable as this practice may be,” Congress did not have the authority to pass the 22-year-old federal law that criminalizes female genital mutilation, and that FGM is for the states to regulate.
FGM is banned worldwide and has been outlawed in more than 30 countries, though the U.S. statute had never been tested before this case.GO READ THE WHOLE THING.
COUNTER-terrorism bosses are urging Christmas shoppers and staff working in busy shops to be extra-vigilant over the festive season at a time when police and M15 are involved in 700 live terror investigations.
And they have also reminded retailers adequate preparations can prevent a repeat of scenes in Oxford Street last Christmas, when a clash between two members of the public caused panic because people feared a terrorist attack was underway.
Police say they have no specific intelligence about an increased threat during the holiday period – but are nevertheless planning to increase patrols and deploy specially trained plain-clothes officers, and have stressed they need the help of the public too. Chief Superintendent Nick Aldworth said:
“As people are enjoying the festive season they will see a visible security presence with police patrols and additional security in crowded places.They need the help of the public, but they arrest people for offending Muslims.
A policeman was stabbed in central Brussels early on Tuesday in what a local newspaper said was an apparent Islamist militant attack - though police said the motive was unclear.
The attacker wounded the officer outside the city’s main police station at around 5.30 am (0430 GMT), a police spokeswoman said.
The attacker was then shot and wounded by another officer, she added. Belgian newspaper DH cited unnamed sources as saying the attacker shouted “Allahu akbar” (God is greatest).
“It is too early to say now what the motive was of the attacker. The investigation is underway,” the police spokeswoman said.
Now 25 years old, Zayn Malik was born and raised in a working-class household in Bradford, England, the son of a Pakistani Muslim father and an English mother who was an Islamic convert.
When he was 17, he and four other singers who were competing on the British show The X Factor were teamed up into a boy band by Simon Cowell and another judge.
The band, called One Direction, quickly became the biggest of international acts. What set Zayn apart was that he identified as a Muslim. Oh, and his sultry good looks. Harry Styles was boyishly handsome, but Zayn was sexy.
Depending on your point of view, this teen heartthrob was either good or bad PR for Islam.
More from Zayn's Vogue chat: “I just want to keep it between me and whatever I believe,” he said, apropos of his spiritual identity. “I feel like that makes me move through life in a nice way. If I behave well, I will get treated well. That’s it. I don’t believe you need to eat a certain meat that’s been prayed over a certain way, I don’t believe you need to read a prayer in a certain language five times a day. I don’t believe any of it. I just believe if you’re a good person everything is going to go right for you.”
According to the Daily Mail, Zayn's frankness about his departure from Islam has caused a “backlash” from fans who say they're variously “disappointed” and “shocked” and “ashamed” of him for “mocking” the religion of his parents. (In fact he said nothing critical about Islam; he just declared that he's no longer a believer.)
A sampling of tweets indicates that he's broken the hearts of Muslim devotees who considered him (as one of them put it) their “Muslim idol” but who now say they hate his guts.
For my part, I wonder whether Zayn knows that his apostasy alone is regarded by orthodox Islamic teaching as justification for the death penalty. It's certainly clear that many of Zayn's former votaries in the Muslim community are keenly aware of this theological tenet.
As one of them tweeted:
Don't get me wrong I love zayn but honestly i'm so disappointed and shocked....Muslim people can't leave their religion it's not allowed . he did the wrong thing. god will absolutely make a special circle of hell for him I'm so sad:((
Yes, it's semi-literate, but you couldn't do a better job of summing up the nature of Islamic “love.”
While no one was watching, there are actually a couple more House seats in, of all places, California that Republicans won, or seemingly won, that are now being hijacked along with four other already stolen in races there and across the country, including the Wisconsin film-flamming of Scott Walker and Leah Vukmir.
The salient points in all of this are that something must be done starting like yesterday to fix this problem. Considering elections are the purview of individual states, I don't see what sort of legislation can be enacted to curb this.
And of course, this is all a feature - an "insurance policy" if you will - in case the citizenry dare to go against the will and destiny of their betters and vote against them, so forget any sort of voting reform like abolishing early voting, Motor-Voter and provisional ballots etc. especially in areas already under Democrat-Leftist rule.
The only way to really defeat this, while we still have a country, is to get out and vote en masse and overcome the cheat factor (which no doubt will increase con gusto if the attempted robberies fail in FL and GA). And that means that it is incumbent on the GOP to field candidates that have a pulse, let alone the temperament and mindset to fight and be on the right side of the issues.
We knew that this was going to be problematic since the GOP is still in a struggle with the pro-Trump conservative base and politicians to control the party. And that situation is still in doubt.
The other crucial point is that it is now evident to anyone but the most clueless that the Democrat Party is now ramping up a very dangerous propaganda meme that any time they lose an election it is because it was stolen by the Republicans (i.e. white male Christian bigots and sons of slave owners and homophobes, etc.).
So in their twisted worldview, stealing an election from a Republican is justified since the latter are evil and dangerous and stand in the way of progress. Just like it's okay to try and break into Tucker Carlson's house, abuse Ted Cruz and his wife at a restaurant, smash someone wearing a MAGA hat in the face with a bike lock or go shoot up Steve Scalise and others at a softball field.
It's all part of "otherization" and declaring anyone who opposes them in the slightest as untermenschen that must be removed. Forget about the rule of law.
Along with everything else we have seen vis a vis Comey, Brennan, Clinton, Obama, Judge Buch M. Danno and all the rest, that is out the window. A truckload of axle grease is being dumped on the already slippery slope we are sliding down on.
I suppose if I wanted to be positive about this, I could say that the fact that even after all they have done to this nation and the brains of several generations of youth that they still need to steal key elections to hold onto power might be a ray of hope.
And that is why they want open borders and amnesty. They can bypass the messy and sometimes embarrassing fiasco of stealing elections and just steal our national identity overnight.
As an aside, when you consider the fact that there are already perhaps 22-30 million illegal aliens already in this country, the fact that Obama and a Democrat-controlled Congress had two whole years to grant them Amnesty and citizenship and probably turn Florida and Texas blue and instead went for Obamacare and Dodd-Fagg is a blunder of epic proportions.
Call it hubris in that he and they believed Jon Meacham's drivel of "We Are All Socialists Now" but had they done that, it would have been lights out America right then and there.
In any case, in the near term, for sure the Democrats even as we speak going to go all out and try to goniff Florida, Ohio, Michigan and Wisconsin for 2020. If I am a Republican governor and have a majority GOP state legislature I would be working my ass off now to thoroughly examine every aspect of the state's elector systems and personnel and preemptively pass laws and fire/hire people to mitigate as best as I can the Democrat thievery that is sure to come.
As a nation, we're collectively bobbing in the surf as it is and the question is is the tide finally receding or is there a massive wave coming in to finish us off? We shall see.
