Europe Has No Future — and Financial Crisis is to Blame, Warns Greek PM

The European Union’s failure to handle the migrant crisis and financial crash will leave Europe with no future, the Greek Prime Minister has warned.

Alexis Tsipras said Europe could face an existential crisis over nationalism unless the bloc admits mistakes. The Greek Prime Minister said economic austerity pushed by European governments has fostered fear, racism and the emergence of the far right.

Fine Arts Majors Have a Higher Unemployment Rate Than High School Dropouts

As we’ve demonstrated in the past, the US labor market contains vicissitudes that at times run contrary to the conventional wisdom. For example, going strictly on the percentage of people accepted vs. total number of applicants, Delta is more selective about hiring flight attendants than Harvard is when selecting its undergraduate class.

The same is true when it comes to analyzing the value of a college degree.

For a long time, conventional wisdom held that, in the long run, Americans would always be better served by having a college degree than not having one, because according to data, college graduates earn nearly 60% more, on average, than workers with only a high school diploma. This stat was often invoked to encourage uncertain young people to enroll, even if they didn’t have a coherent long-term plan. This is one of the reasons why skyrocketing student-loan delinquencies are nearing a crisis level.

And the latest example of this fallacious thinking comes to us courtesy of Bankrate.com, which recently conducted a study on the most— and least-profitable college majors. While actuaries earn the most on average (while also benefiting from low unemployment and little incentive to obtain a graduate degree), the study found that the “niche” fine arts majors not only earn one of the lowest average salaries of the 162 majors examined, but worse, graduates with that major struggle with a 9.1% unemployment rate.

Benghazi Hero Suspended Twice in One Week, Others Calling for Trump Assassination is OK??

You’re about to see the reality of the bias and obvious double standards going on with social media and the growing concern revolving around the treatment of Conservative-leaning Americans. We’re in the middle of a digital civil war as big tech and social media websites are clearly showing bias towards those who are not Democrats or liberals.

This week’s clear-cut case of double-standards and hypocrisy and madness involves Benghazi hero Kris Paronto who was suspended twice this week by social media platform, Twitter, for tweets that are not nearly as bad as other things we see on the Internet. Of course, the other things we see online which are way worse are going without punishment, meanwhile, a man who risked his life for America and was left stranded by the Obama administration finds himself facing multiple suspensions just for speaking the truth.

NFL Slump Continues — Poll Results Are in! Fans Send Disrespectful Players Huge Message

The NFL is having trouble already and it’s only week one of the 2018 football season. So far we’ve had Colin Kaepernick and Nike teaming up for what was supposed to be their inspiring advertising campaign, but it ended up being more divisive and fans dismantled it piece by piece, even burning their Nike apparel as a response. Pair that up with at least two players from the Miami Dolphins taking a knee and you have a rough start to football while the America-hating athletes stick their nose in the air at our great country.

While fans expressed their distaste for the anti-American protests by athletes abusing their platform, they spoke the hardest by alienating football entirely. Some football fans have given up on the NFL, refusing to watch any games or buy more merchandise. Think about it! Us fans are the people who pay the athletes checks when we cough up $10 for a beer or $40 for parking, then get ripped off by the inflated food costs inside the stadium. When I can get a case of Bud Lite for $25, or two beers at the ballpark, then I’m going to be a little fed up when some irritating NFL player starts yapping about his social justice nonsense.

[Comment: NFL united people around their particular team irrespective of political differences. Globalists do not want anything that unites the public, even in the sports and entertainment sphere. So, Globalists and their elite minions are using SJW garbage to divide people and the nation. They are intentionally seeking to destroy the NFL.]

Obama vs. The Nation

In Obama’s world, Islam is a religion of tolerance — not so much of Christians, also maligned as “bitter clingers.” He took a shot at Christians when he said at an Easter prayer breakfast that “I have to say that, sometimes when I listen to other less-than-loving expressions by Christians, I get concerned.” Not so concerned was he by the mass beheading of Coptic Christians on a Libyan beach by the Islamic State.

Obama once lectured Christians to “get off their high horse” as they pronounced their teachings to the faithful:…

‘The ICC is Already Dead to Us’: John Bolton Announces Withdrawal Over War on Terror Probe

Bolton said unequivocally that the U.S. would end all ties to the court.

“Today, on the eve of September 11th, I want to deliver a clear and unambiguous message on behalf of the President of the United States,” Bolton said. “The United States will use any means necessary to protect our citizens and those of our allies from unjust prosecution by this illegitimate court.”

“We will not cooperate with the ICC. We will provide no assistance to the ICC. We will not join the ICC,” Bolton said. “We will let the ICC die on its own. After all, for all intents and purposes, the ICC is already dead to us.”

On the same day that Bolton made his remarks, the White House released a fact sheet explaining the ICC decision, which included a remark from President Donald Trump.

“America is a sovereign nation, and our first priority is always the safety and security of our citizens,” Trump said.

The ICC declaration is the latest in Trump administration actions to remove the United States from international entanglements that do not benefit America or its citizens, including withdrawal from the Paris climate change agreement and ending membership in the United Nations Human Rights Council.

Trump Insiders Blocking Executive Action on Big Tech Censorship: Report

Submitted by Joseph Jankowski of PlanetFreeWill

Executive action to address big tech’s censorship of conservative voices is being blocked by Trump administration insiders who have convinced the President to place the issue aside, according to a report from Infowars.com.

A source close to the administration told Infowars that the executive action was planned as soon as this week but will likely be delayed as older and more tech-ignorant Trump insiders resist.

“As the internet has become an increasingly central part of modern life, Big Tech giants such as Facebook, Twitter and Google have increasingly sought to become the gatekeepers of the internet and political discourse,” Parscale wrote Monday.

Tucker Carlson Reveals Google Exec’s Blatant Effort to Help Hillary in 2016 [Video]

“This wasn’t a get-out-the-vote effort or whatever they say. It wasn’t aimed at all potential voters. It wasn’t even aimed at a balanced cross-section of subgroups. Google didn’t try to get out the vote among say Christian Arabs in Michigan or say Persian Jews in Los Angeles—they sometimes vote Republican. It was aimed only at one group, a group that Google cynically assumed would vote exclusively for the Democratic Party. Furthermore, this mobilization effort targeted not only the entire country but swing states vital to the Hillary campaign. This was not an exercise in civics, this was political consulting. It was in effect an in-kind contribution to the Hillary Clinton campaign.”

Watch: Cheerleader Pummels Girl Who Challenges Her to a Fistfight

The 92-second video clip reportedly shows Savannah Sprague, a cheerleader for Clayton Valley Charter High School, beating an unidentified teenage girl who egged her on by challenging her to a fistfight, the New York Post reported.

“Do you want to fight?” the unidentified girl tells Sprague, who is seen sitting at a table with several other cheerleaders surrounded by several students.

“No, nobody wants to fight,” Sprague replies. “You guys want to fight us. Nobody speaks on you guys, nobody talks about you guys.”

Sprague then tells the girl, who can be seen towering over her, to remove her finger from her face while other students looked on.

“What are you going to do?” the unidentified girl says. “Are you going to make me get back?”

“Don’t f*cking touch me,” Sprague replies.

The unidentified girl then slaps Sprague in the face, starting the brutal beatdown which ended with Sprague body-slamming and pummeling the girl—all while in her cheerleading uniform.

Letter Release: Organizations Express Concerns About OSCE’s Attempts to Shut Down Free Speech

The Center for Security Policy (CSP) today released a letter signed by 27 organizations in a dozen countries expressing concerns about the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE)’s attempts to shut down speech, especially on the threat of the totalitarian Islamic law known as Sharia.

The letter, addressed to Ingibjörg Sólrún Gísladóttir, Director of OSCE’s Europe-based Office of Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR), charges that her organization has become increasingly intolerant with respect to airing concerns over member countries’ policies with respect to migration, terrorism, and free speech.

Specifically, Sharia includes mandates for Jihad, that is, war against non-Muslims; for Hijrah, the Islamic doctrine of conquest by colonization; and against Blasphemy, that is, any speech that a Muslim might find offensive at any time.

For the last decade, a civil society delegation led by Austrian patriot and freedom fighter Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff has attended ODIHR meetings to express concerns that especially European countries were potentially unwittingly facilitating these Sharia-compliant practices, to their great and increasingly obvious detriment.

According to the letter, “Those concerns align virtually identically with the policies of the current governments of many OSCE Participating States, including inter alia the United States, Hungary, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Poland, Austria, and Italy.”

Yet, according to the letter, in the last few years, ODIHR “has grown increasingly hostile to allowing that delegation to participate.”

That hostility led to an ODIHR policy restricting civil society participation at a July 2-3 meeting in Vienna Austria.

Specifically, a document describing the meeting stated that, “Participants have a right to express their opinions freely, while respecting human rights & the principle of non-discrimination. Thus, the moderator will interrupt any speech that attacks a person or group on the basis of, e.g., race, religion, gender, sex or any other status.”[1] (Emphasis added.)

According to the letter, such a policy — given that it is in fact aimed at shutting down speech about Sharia — was “a tremendous setback for the Helsinki process and a betrayal of the spirit and founding values of this unique peace advancement initiative.”

In response, the letter reports, the U.S. OSCE delegation to communicated to ODIHR that it could not “simply insert new rules outside of the consensus process,” that “this particular new policy would violate OSCE modalities about civil society participation”; and finally that civil society groups “are in fact under not the slightest obligation to follow OSCE Participating State commitments, given that they are not themselves Participating States.”

The letter goes on to charge that the new policy was “a violation of OSCE commitments with respect to freedom of expression, which means it is a violation of the OSCE Code of Conduct for Staff/Mission Members, which states that they ‘shall comply with the principles, norms and commitments of the OSCE and adhere to the mandate of their respective Institution or Mission in performing their duties.’“[2]

In addition, the letter argues, “because it is aimed at those attempting to raise concerns with respect to migration and terrorism, the policy is in practice in direct conflict with the positions on terrorism and migration taken by current governments of OSCE Participating States including not only the United States, but also Hungary, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Poland, Austria, and Italy.”

In spite of the warning from the U.S. and the facial violations of its own Code of Conduct, the letter reports, ODIHR imposed a new Code of Conduct on every registrant to its upcoming Human Dimension Implementation Meeting (HDIM) in Warsaw in mid-September.

The Code of Conduct includes a prohibition on speech “that might be provoking…, likely to give rise to violence, [or] discriminating [against] other persons on the basis of their race, color, sex, language, religion or belief, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status.”

Further, the document continues, “ODIHR reserves the right to instruct HDIM moderators to interrupt any Participant who speaks in violation of these principles. In case of repeated non-compliance ODIHR reserves the right to void the Participant of the right to speak at the session, or as a last resort of theright to further participate at HDIM.” (Emphasis added.)

ODIHR’s prohibitions on “provoking” speech “likely to give rise to violence” appear to implement Sharia blasphemy restrictions on free expression.

The letter thus demands that ODIHR “explicitly rescind” the new Code of Conduct’s offending sections.[3]

The letter also requests that ODIHR “pledge that on the issues of freedom of expression, migration, and terror,” it will abide by rules stating that groups with relevant expertise be allowed to provide their suggestions, as well as with OSCE’s own Code of Conduct.[4]

Signers of the letter include not only Sabaditsch-Wolff, Chief Delegate, Pax Europa, but Frank J. Gaffney, Jr., Founder and President of CSP, as well as Suzanne Scholte, the Seoul Peace Prize Laureate who is President of the Defense Forum Foundation.

Signers also include Aia Fog, Chairman of the Danish Free Press Society; Anne Marie Waters, Director, Sharia Watch UK; Dr. Bill Warner, Ph.D., President of Center for the Study of Political Islam; Robert Spencer, the Director of Jihad Watch; Christine Douglass-Williams, a former Director of the Canadian Race Relations Foundation as well as former External Advisor to the Canadian Office of Religious Freedom.

The remaining signers were Alain Wagner, President, International Civil Liberties Alliance, France; C. Preston Noell III, President, Tradition, Family, Property, Inc.; Dr. Harald Fiegl, Representative, Mission Europa Netzwerk Karl Martell of Austria; Andrej Ralboský, Administrator Nadácia Slovakia Christiana of Slovakia; Uzay Bulut,Turkey’s Human Rights Association (IHD) Committee against Racism and Discrimination, Turkey; Michal Specjalski, Vice President; Pantarey Foundation, Warsaw,Poland; Alex Cherny, Deputy Head, NGO Nashe Pravo, Kiev, Ukraine; Martina Veljanoska, Chief of Permanent Mission, World Macedonian Congress, Macedonia; Henrik Clausen, International Sakharov Committee, Denmark; Christian Zeitz, Adviser to the board, Wiener Akademikerbund, Austria; Kevin Freeman, Founder, NSIC Institute; former Colorado State Sen. John Andrews, President, Americans for America; George Rasley, Managing Editor, ConservativeHQ.com; Christopher C. Hull, Ph.D., Executive Vice President, Secure Freedom; Clare Lopez, Vice President for Research and Analysis, Center for Security Policy; Philip B. Haney, Founding Member, U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), President, Venatus Group; Jessie Jane Duff, Gunnery Sergeant, U.S. Marine Corps (ret.), Senior Fellow, London Center for Policy Research; David M. Petteys, President, Sea Jay Foundation; and Deborah Anderson, Managing Editor, Minnesotans Against Shariah.

The letter was carbon copied to seven countries missions and/or their leaders, namely Chargé d’affaires Harry Kamian, U.S. Permanent Mission to the OSCE; Ambassador Maria Assunta Accili, Permanent Mission of Italy to the OSCE; Director General Karla Wursterova, International Organizations and Development Assistance, Slovakian Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs; Ambassador Christian Strohal, Special Representative for Austria’s OSCE chairmanship 2017 bei MFA, Permanent Mission of Austria to the OSCE; Ambassador Károly Dán, Permanent Mission of Hungary to the OSCE, the UN and Other International Organisations in Vienna; 1st Secretary Lenka Skalická, Deputy Head of Mission for the OSCE, Delegation of the Czech Republic to the OSCE; and the Permanent Mission of Poland to the OSCE in Vienna.

Muslim Leader Thinks There Are 10 Million Not the Estimated 6 Million Muslims in France

French media and politicians have always said that the number of French Muslims is around 6 million. This number was deemed an underestimate of the reality; France’s top Muslim leader said that there are more than 10 million Muslims in the country.

The French Council of the Muslim Faith is a national elected body who serve as an official interlocutor with the French state in regulation of Muslim religious activities and is the de facto representative of the French Muslims before the national government.

The current president is Ahmet Ogras, who gave an interview to Radio France Maghreb 2 (excerpt from 54:20 below) in which he speaks about the real number of Muslims living in France.

Biggest Ever Study of Male Fertility Finds Nearly 60% Reduction in Sperm Count

Number of infertile men being treated has doubled in just four years

Data from the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority, which regulates infertility treatment in the UK, shows the number of infertile men being treated has doubled in just four years.

The biggest ever study of male fertility in the developed world revealed a 59.3 per cent reduction in average sperm count between 1973 and 2011.

‘We have a huge public health problem that, until now, was under the radar. Health authorities should be concerned,’ says Dr Hagai Levine, an expert in environmental health at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, who led the study of declining male fertility which was published in the journal Human Reproduction Update.

He says his findings should be treated as the ‘canary in the coalmine’, providing a warning for the future of male reproductive health.

Poor lifestyle is a recognised factor. As Dr Channa Jayasena, a specialist in diabetes and hormone activity based at Hammersmith Hospital in London, explains: ‘Rising obesity and diabetes are major factors in increasing rates of male infertility. This is because they damage overall fitness.

Russian MoD: Filming of Staged Chemical Attack Has Begun

The Russian military is claiming that false flag footage of a staged chemical attack is being handed out to media outlets today. The footage is allegedly meant to serve as proof that the Syrian government has conducted a chemical weapons attack in Idlib, Syria.

According to RT, several Middle East TV channels and a United States news channel have been sent to Jisr al-Shughur in Syria’s Idlib Governorate to produce the footage needed for the provocation, a statement by the Russian Center for Syrian Reconciliation said. It added the intelligence came from local residents of Jisr al-Shughur. “All the footage of the staged provocation in Jisr al-Shughur is to be delivered to the newsrooms of TV channels, which are to broadcast it after its publication on social media,” the statement claimed.

False flags chemical attacks are nothing new, especially where the Syrian civil war is concerned.

US, France, And UK in Direct Talks Over Possible Syria Strikes

“That has to be, in the history of propaganda in the 20th and 21st centuries, one of the most outrageous claims that I can think of,” John Bolton stated in response to Moscow’s charge that anti-Assad insurgents in Idlib are preparing a chemical false flag in order to hasten a US attack on Damascus, according to a new Wall Street Journal report.

“Along with the United States and France, we have been clear that we will respond swiftly and appropriately if the Assad regime repeats its appalling use of chemical weapons,” he vowed, echoing statements the national security advisor began making weeks ago during a trip to Jerusalem.

The WSJ has revealed the White House is now in direct talks with the U.K. and France over plans for a possible third round of coordinated strikes on Syria should the Syrian Army use chemical weapons during its Idlib assault.

Disney Rebooting ‘Party of Five’ With Deportation Plot and an Immigrant Family

The Disney-owned cable network Freeform is set to reboot the popular 1990s family drama Party of Five, but this time the family at the heart of the show will be a family of illegal aliens.

Freeform announced the re-make of the drama that aired for six seasons from 1994 to 2000, but with a twist on the “missing parents” theme of the show, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

In the original series, the five young people who starred had become orphaned when their parents died in a car accident. The series then chronicled the siblings’ efforts to cope with the loss and to continue on as a family with the eldest son in charge. But in the re-make of the series, Freeform announced that instead of being killed in a car accident, the Mexican immigrant family’s mother and father would have been deported back to Mexico leaving their illegal alien children to cope without them here in the U.S.

Community College Shuts Down Student Handing Out ‘Jesus Loves You’ Valentines

A student at a Wisconsin community college was stopped by school officials when she tried to hand out “Jesus Loves You” valentines on campus.

According to a report from The College Fix, a 29-year-old from Wisconsin claims that school officials at Northeast Wisconsin Technical College interrupted her decade-long practice of handing at “Jesus Loves You” valentines. According to a lawsuit filed by Olsen, the college has a tiny “free speech zone,” a practice that has been outlawed by various states. Campuses that have “free speech zones” ask students to restrict their political and partisan speech to certain predefined areas on campus.

Olsen has been handing out Valentine’s Day cards on campus for ten years. The cards contain different phrases such as “Smile, God loves you! John 3:16,” “You are beautiful! Romans 5:8” and “Jesus Loves You!” This year, campus security approached her and told her that she wasn’t allowed to hand out Valentine’s on campus.

  1. An egalitarian educational system is necessarily opposed to meritocracy and reward for achievement. It is inevitably opposed to procedures that might reveal differing levels of achievement.

  2. “Switchblade” knives aren’t worth the paper they’re printed on. They’re trickey gimmicks at best.
    “Cold Steel” lockbladers for me.
    Just say’in.

  3. Juncker delivers annual State of the Union address

    This was a joke if there ever was one.

    At 51:04 the MEP’s begin to applaude, a rather weak and perfunctory applause can be heard.

    At 51:07 three seconds later suddenly a thunderous applause can be heard.

    Now where did that come from?
    At 23:23 we see most MEP’s didn’t even bother to show up.
    They are probably in the nearest boozer, a place where Juncker would like to be also.
    And just for the fun of it here a hires photo of all the empty seats;

    The EU program director must have hit the applause button on his console and started the applause tape.

    Are those people now so desperate they have thrown the last vestiges of shame down the toilet?

  4. So what is it Bono wants for Sweden? Did he ever wonder why the Swedish Democrats are gaining power? Or is the truth to painful for him?

    • 30 years ago I was a big U2 fan. Bono is another champagne liberal, who lives in luxury and can shelter himself and his family from the obnoxious behaviour and crime of illegal economic migrants, that ordinary working people are exposed to. He is out of touch and with a “holier than thou” attitude. In fact his own NGO CEO recently said future African population growth must come to Europe.
