DNC Files Lawsuit Alleging Collusion Between Trump Campaign and Russian Government

The Democratic National Committee has filed a lawsuit against the Russian government, one of its spy agencies, WikiLeaks, and numerous Trump campaign associates seeking damages related to the hack of its email systems during the 2016 presidential campaign.

The lawsuit seeks millions of dollars for what it alleges is a conspiracy between President Donald Trump’s campaign and the Russian government to disseminate emails hacked from the DNC.

Facebook Suspends Conservative Comedian for Posting Abusive Messages Sent to Him

Facebook has suspended a conservative comedian for posting screenshots of the abusive messages he received on the platform. Terrence K. Williams began posting the hateful comments he’s gotten from liberals, only to be reprimanded by the social media giant.

According to Breitbart, not long after the suspension of columnist and editor Jamie Glazov, who posted screenshots of threats he received, comedian Terrence K. Williams has been temporarily suspended for posting screenshots of abuse and ridicule he received from liberals on the platform. One such example that Williams posted can be seen below:…

Breitbart was able to talk to Williams about the horrible and hate-filled messages he’s been receiving. He says the left is seemingly angry that a black conservative even exists and they treat him as less than a human for it. And Williams isn’t even exposing all of the abuse he gets on Facebook either, out of fear his page will suffer.

“I don’t post all my threats anymore because I fear that Facebook may suspend my account and I have a large platform and people that look forward to my messages every day and I’m going on tour so I don’t want to break any violations and throw everything away so I don’t post all my stuff all the time. Facebook said they would ban me permanently if I kept posting screenshots of the death threats,” Williams said.

Williams stated that despite multiple reports drawing Facebook’s attention to the screenshots and the abuse he keeps receiving, Facebook failed to act. “Facebook said that they reviewed the screenshots and said that none of the threats violated Facebook’s guidelines,” said Williams.

Student Shot: Injured at Ocala’s Forest High; Suspect ‘Sorry’

A 19-year-old man has been arrested and accused of shooting through a door and hitting a student in the ankle Friday morning at Forest High School.

The suspect — identified as Sky Bouche of Cyrstal River and a former Forest student — threw down his shotgun. He was arrested within three minutes as he waited and talked with a teacher.

The injured 17-year-old student suffered a non-life-threatening injury and was taken to a local hospital. Sheriff Billy Woods said he was in good condition Friday evening.

The shooting call came in to law enforcement at 8:39 a.m. By 8:42 a.m., Bouche was in custody. Teacher Kelly McManis-Panasuk talked with Bouche while the school’s resource officer, Marion County Sheriff’s Deputy James “Jimmy” Long, and principal Brent Carson rushed to the scene.

The suspect was not injured and was not fired upon, Woods said. “He didn’t offer any resistance” when arrested…

Texas A&M Shuts Down 2 Chinese Learning Institutes Deemed National Security Threats

On April 9, the Texas A&M University system announced its intention to close two Confucius Institutes located at its College Station and Prairie View campuses, respectively. The Chinese government-funded institutes offer language and cultural programming for students, but a recent letter from Reps. Henry Cuellar, D-Texas, and Michael McCaul, R-Texas, flagged them as “a threat to U.S. national security,” saying they serve “as a platform for China’s intelligence collection and political agenda.”

In response, university Chancellor John Sharp decided to close the two institutes. He released a statement saying:

“We have great respect for Congressmen McCaul and Cuellar. I don’t question their judgment, nor their patriotism. In addition, they have access to classified information we do not have. We are terminating the contract as they suggested.”

This action follows similar decisions by the University of Chicago and Pennsylvania State University to sever their ties with China. Concerns over the Confucius Institutes, which are located at universities around the world, have been growing in recent years and have come under increased scrutiny from members of Congress, the media, and academic organizations like the American Association of University Professors.

Located primarily in the United States and other Western countries, ostensibly to further Chinese language training and cultural programs, the number of institutes funded and controlled by the Chinese Ministry of Education has mushroomed.

According to a 2017 study by the National Association of Scholars, from their beginning in 2004, the number of Confucius Institutes housed at colleges and universities has grown to well over 1,000 worldwide and 103 in the United States. In addition, over 500 Confucius classrooms are housed at American high schools.

Man Arrested After Random, Unprovoked Attacks on 5 Women: Police

Toronto police have arrested a 24-year-old man in connection with several attacks on women in the downtown core.

Police allege the man threw a rock at two different women, striking them in the back, near Yonge and Wellesley streets just after 8 a.m. last Thursday.

On Friday, the same man approached a third woman near Yonge and Dundas streets and allegedly kicked her in the back of the head. She had a concussion as a result of the incident.

Again, on Sunday, the man allegedly kicked a fourth woman in the back near Church and Wood streets, north of Carlton. A few minutes later, he kicked another woman in the chest.

Police say all of the assaults were random and unprovoked.

Ahmed Oumer, 24, has been charged with two counts of assault and assault with a weapon and one count of assault causing bodily harm.

Ottawa Transit Commission Flouts Quebec’s ‘Niqab Ban’

Ottawa’s transit commission has made its opposition to Quebec’s so-called “niqab ban” official.

The 12-member commission on Wednesday unanimously passed a resolution that requires OC Transpo to continue to provide service that complies with the Charter of Rights and Freedoms and to “remain committed to equity and diversity.”

Critics say the Quebec law, which passed last October, violates the charter rights of Muslim women who wear a niqab or burka. It bans the wearing of such face coverings by anyone receiving public services, including public transit.

EU Wants Clouds to Cough Data From Anywhere in Six Hours

Same-day delivery of mails, TXTs and docs for investigators probing crime or terror

The European Commission has outlined its desire for a new legal instrument that would require carriers, clouds, email service providers and operators of messaging apps to produce a user’s data in six hours to assist investigations of “criminals or terrorists”.

The proposed European Production Order will “allow a judicial authority in one Member State to request electronic evidence (such as emails, text or messages in apps) directly from a service provider offering services in the Union and established or represented in another Member State, regardless of the location of data”.

And yes, you’ve interpreted that correctly: it does mean that if an organisation has an office in one European Union member state, and stores its data outside the EU, the EU wants the right to retrieve that data within six hours.

That super-short deadline will only be imposed in the case of an “emergency”. Less urgent investigations have been offered a ten-day deadline.

[Comment: This is the real reason “cloud” computing is so heavily marketed to the public. Cloud computing enables the State to see all your data — which was the goal all along.]

Hungary’s Real Wages Will Grow More Than Anywhere Else in the World — Projection

Recently Viktor Orban won another election in Hungary. The majority of the people voted to keep him in power. Despite frequent negative articles about him in the Western media, Orban remains.

As with any politician, he has plenty of vocal opponents, but the elections speak for themselves. I don’t want to say he is great or he is evil, but we should give credit where credit is due.

In this case, Hungary deserves some credit. Whether or not this is thanks to Orban, I can’t say, but economic successes are usually attributed to the ruling party. What is the success? The projection is that Hungary’s real wages will grow more than anywhere else in the world.

Marine Le Pen’s Niece Opening School This Year to Train Future Far-Right Leaders

Marion Maréchal-Le Pen’s ‘Academy of Political Sciences’ will open in Lyon in September, providing a full-time education to students and eventually awarding them state-recognised diplomas.

Earlier this year, Ms Maréchal-Le Pen wrote in right-wing weekly Valeurs Actuelles that the “free and independent” institution aims to “detect and train the leaders of tomorrow who will have the courage, intelligence, discernment and competence to act effectively … in the service of society”.

The academy is open to “all the political currents of the right” and will provide “the intellectual, cultural, legal, technical and media skills to our young people that will allow them to perform as well as possible in both the business and political arena”.

Interview With Boy in ‘Chemical Attack’ Video: ‘We Didn’t See Any Chemical Attack Symptoms’

A new interview with the now infamous boy in the alleged chemical attack video used as a justification for the United States-led bombing of Syria is adding more doubt to the official narrative. The boy says he was told to go to the hospital where people started dousing him with water.

One of the main “characters” in the footage at the hospital is a water-soaked boy, who is seen being sprayed with water by people who claim to be “rescue workers.” It’s not clear whether they are doctors from the hospital, human rights activists, or White Helmets members. The latter usually make such videos and send them to news agencies, including Reuters.

In what could be the biggest fabrication in recent months, the Douma boy in the chemical attack video and his family have spoken about their ordeal to a Russian TV crew. It sure appears that the chemical attack was “staged suffering” by the White Helmets. The boy said that he was asked to go to the hospital, where people “grabbed” him and started “pouring water” over his head for no apparent reason.

Syrian Conflict is a Distraction From a Secret War

Back in March 2010 I published an article titled ‘Will Globalists Trigger Yet Another World War?’ under the pen name Giordano Bruno describing what I felt would be the most effective triggers for a new global conflict. In that article I pointed to Syria as the primary powder keg, followed in close second by Iran and Yemen. This was written well before the Syrian civil war was engineered by establishment interests. I focused on potential false flags that could be used as a rationale by the U.S. or Israel to invade the region, thereby giving Russia and China reason to retaliate, for the most part economically. Ultimately, this scenario would play out perfectly as a cover for the deliberate collapse of the U.S. dollar as the world reserve currency.

In August 2012 I reiterated my concerns in an article titled Syria And Iran Dominoes Lead To World War, right after the Syrian civil war began to gain momentum.

Needless to say, I have not changed my general thesis since those days; however, I would like to touch upon certain factors now that the dangers I examined in those articles are mostly coming to pass in 2018.

First, no hard evidence has been produced by western intelligence agencies to support the claim that Bashar Al Assad used chemical weapons against his own people. None. Therefore, there is no basis for the latest missile attacks on the regime. This same exact false flag tactic was attempted under the Obama administration to draw the U.S. people into open war in Syria, and it failed. Now the chemical weapon card is being played again, this time with a “conservative” president. The establishment must be hoping that Republicans will find excitement in becoming the war party so long after the Bush years.

As I queried the last time a chemical false flag was attempted, what exactly does Assad have to gain by initiating a chemical attack against innocent civilians when he has the tactical momentum and upper hand in the civil war? The answer is nothing. The only people that have anything to gain by asserting such an attack, either real or fabricated, are people seeking to create chaos for their own benefit.

Canada Evacuates Diplomats’ Families From Cuba, Citing Mysterious Brain Injuries

The government of Canada has announced plans to evacuate family members of its diplomats serving in Cuba, because of medical issues caused by an alleged espionage-related technological device. These concerns have persisted among United States and Canadian diplomatic staff since the fall of 2016, when several members of staff at the US embassy in Havana reported suffering from sudden and unexplained loss of hearing. Eventually, their symptoms became so serious that some American diplomats decided “to cancel their tours early and return to the United States”, according to the Associated Press, which published this story in August of 2016.

Since that time, the US Department of State has said that 21 of its diplomatic and support staff have been diagnosed with brain injuries. In response to these concerns, Washington recalled the majority of its diplomats from Havana last September and issued a travel warning advising its citizens to stay away from the island. Now the Canadian embassy has said it will evacuate all family members of its personnel stationed in Havana, according to the BBC. The government of Canada is believed to have made the decision to evacuate its citizens after it confirmed that at least 10 members of diplomatic families living on the island had been found to suffer from “unexplained brain symptoms”, according to Canadian government officials. These include regular spells of dizziness and nausea, as well as difficulty in concentrating on tasks.

Interestingly, Canadian experts have dismissed theories, emanating mostly from the US, that the mysterious brain symptoms come from a mysterious covert weapon that emits sonic waves. But some Canadian experts have said that the symptoms suffered by the diplomats and their families may point to a new illness, whose cause remains unknown. Cuba has dismissed repeated allegations by Washington that it allowed a third party — possibly Russia — to conduct sonic attacks against Western diplomats on the island. Cuban officials have described the allegations as tricks in a game of “political manipulation” that has been concocted by the White House to damage the bilateral relationship between the US and the government of the Caribbean island.

Attacker in Berlin Skullcap Case Turns Himself in to Police

BERLIN — A 19-year-old Syrian asylum-seeker turned himself in to police Thursday after his violent attack on a man wearing a Jewish skullcap in Berlin caused outrage across Germany.

The young Syrian showed up with his lawyer at a police precinct, police spokesman Winfrid Wenzel said.

The 21-year-old victim, an Arab Israeli, caught Tuesday’s assault on video. It quickly went viral and reopened a debate about anti-Semitism in the country. Even Chancellor Angela Merkel condemned the assault sharply.

The video shows the attacker whipping the Israeli with a belt while shouting “Yehudi!” or Jew, in Arabic.

The victim, Adam Armoush, said he’s not Jewish but wore the skullcap as an experiment because he didn’t believe a friend who told him it’s too dangerous to wear one in public in Germany.

If an applicant is found to have previously entered another EU country where the “Dublin regulation” is in force, they could be sent back there. Under the Dublin rule, people typically have to seek asylum in the first EU state they reach.

Feds Expose Network That Smuggled Illegal Immigrants From Syria to U.S.

The Treasury Department slapped sanctions Wednesday on a Syrian man and his criminal syndicate, blaming them for smuggling “hundreds” of illegal immigrants from Syria and Lebanon into Mexico and then helping them to jump the border into the U.S.

Nasif Barakat and his syndicate, which authorities labeled the Barakat Transnational Criminal Organization, charged about $20,000 to complete the smuggling. The money paid for bribes and for fake documents, including false European passports, to help illegal immigrants hide their identities. The fees also covered transportation from Syria through other Middle Eastern countries to South and Central America, the journey north through Mexico, and final help sneaking into the U.S.

Macron Openly Endorses the Kalergi Plan: 200 Million Africans to Mass Migrate to Europe Within 30 Years

‘Bombshell’ population growth in Africa means Europe is entering an “unprecedented” age of mass migration, Emmanuel Macron has said, asserting that the two continents’ destinies are “bound”.

“The migratory phenomenon we are facing will be historic,” declared the French president in a television appearance Sunday night, when he announced that “great poverty”, “climate change”, and “geopolitical conflicts” will see Africans flooding into Europe “for many years to come”.

To back up his point, Macron pointed to “bombshell” population growth across the third world continent, which he added has been “tremendously well described” by French-American journalist and professor Stephen Smith in a recent book.

“[Africans] are mostly turning to Europe because the continent [of Europe] is not an island, because of our location, and because Europe has its destiny bound with Africa,” stated the vehemently pro-EU French figure during a two-hour long interview.

Smith, the Africa expert to whom Macron referred during his appearance on BFMTV, estimates that the number of Africans living in Europe will grow from nine million to between 150 million and 200 million within the next 30 years.

Starbucks: The Corporate Embodiment of White Privilege

Unsurprisingly, Starbucks has confirmed what I’ve always suspected. It’s a company run by mostly affluent whites, and mostly Democrats, who apologize guiltily for their privileged white affluence so that the other affluent privileged white Democrats with whom they socialize will commend them for apologizing for their privileged white affluence. It’s the white affluent Democrat version of a pity party.

In the wake of last week’s arrest of two black men at a Philadelphia Starbucks, the DMIC (the Democrat Media Industrial Complex) was once again gifted the “white man preying upon innocent black men” narrative. This one will never lose its addictive, bloody, raw red meat appeal to Democrats, who believe that whites and police conspire on a daily basis to keep blacks manacled in slavery and oppression.

In my upcoming first book, 10 Warning Signs Your Child Is Becoming a Democrat, I write about the impossibility for Democrats to view any situation uncolored by race, gender, religion, ethnicity, or any trait that always falls into lifestyle choice (religion) or unchosen accident (race, gender, etc.). Lifestyle choices and unchosen traits aren’t skills.

    A group of Germans attacked foreigners

    In the land of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern a group of Germans first set dogs on two passing them Eritreans, and then beat them. The police reported that the victims were slightly injured.

    When two men on bicycles rode past a group of six drunk men, they unleashed the two dogs. Then three men and one woman from the company ran after the victims. Two of them struck the Eritreans numerous blows to the head. Then one of them took away bicycles of victims and threw them in a pond.

    By the time the police arrived, a group of attackers had insulted Eritreans with racist remarks.

    • I’ll wager the German police are sparing no effort or resource to track down the members of this group. We absolutely cannot permit the indigenous populations to resist and fight back against the invasion. They must not even speak out against it.

      Perhaps what is required is a few thousand incidents like this, every month, all across Europe. The treacherous politicians will use all the means at their disposal, and with far more vigour than they would exercise if the demographics of attacker and attacked were reversed, to try to stop them. Word may however eventually start to circulate among actual and potential invaders that Europe is not such a welcoming place after all, and that the native inhabitants are not simply a placid, bovine mass, resignedly accepting any indignity which the ‘enrichers’ choose to inflict upon them.
