Michael Savage Calls on Trump to Order Arrest of ANTIFA Members

Homeland Security should “round up the leadership”

Radio host Michael Savage has called on President Trump to direct Homeland Security to arrest prominent members of Antifa, labeling the organization a “domestic terrorist group”.

During an interview with the American Mirror, Savage said the group should be treated like the new Weather Underground.

“I think they have declared themselves to be a terrorist organization,” said Savage, pointing to a story from last month about how Antifa members strategized how they could carry out “ambushes and assassinations” to further their political agenda.

“They’re absolutely a domestic terrorist group, what else would anyone call them?” asked Savage.

He then called for the Department of Homeland Security to “round up the leadership and arrest them,” adding, “what else do you do, wait for them to kill people?”

Savage warned that the left are “in a revolution” and would continue to enact it by “smearing and destroying anyone who stands in their way — first verbally and then physically.”

“They are absolutely on the warpath. There’s very little opposition,” he added, noting that those on the far-left still revere Communist regimes that engaged in mass executions of political enemies.

New York City’s Islamist Grant

On August 21, the New York City Council announced $250,000 in grants made to 14 Muslim community organizations, in collaboration with the New York Immigration Coalition. Alarmingly, three of the grant recipients are linked to Islamic extremism — the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Muslim American Society (MAS) and the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA).

Worse, it seems that ICNA, in particular, plans to use the money not for civic improvement but for religious proselytizing.

Man Charged in Fatal Kitchener House Explosion

A 58-year-old man is charged with first-degree murder in connection with a deadly house explosion in Kitchener.

Waterloo Region Police say the man, whose name was not released, was arrested on Monday, nearly six weeks after the explosion that rocked a quiet residential neighbourhood in August.

The blast levelled one home and caused extensive damage to some nearby residences.

The body of 58-year-old Edresilda Haan was found in the backyard of the destroyed home and her death was ruled a homicide.

Another man who lived in the home, who family members previously identified as Haan’s husband, was seriously injured in the blast and police say he remains in hospital to this day.

Police did not say how many charges the suspect is facing in relation to the explosion, but say they include one count of first-degree murder and one count of arson with disregard for human life.

These almost 1200 migrants were collected from 30 different boats in one weekend, according to SM’s own Twitter page, proving once again the homing beacon effect that the Socialist government is having on illegal migration routes into Europe.

Climate Alarmists: ‘Act Now Idiots, ‘ You Only Have 12 Years to Save the World

An ever more desperate sounding climate change lobby is urging “unprecedented changes in all aspects of society” to avoid climate Armageddon in a report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

The IPCC calls for massive investments in renewable energy to meet climate-change goals, claiming that avoiding a catastrophe will involve “annual average investment needs in the energy system of around $2.4 trillion” between 2016 and 2035.

The IPCC is Still Wrong on Climate Change. Scientists Prove it.

The NIPCC is U.N. climate alarmists’ worst nightmare.

The IPCC is a political organization, not a scientific body. It was formed by the United Nations in 1988 for the purpose of establishing the need for a global solution to the alleged problem of anthropogenic climate change. Note that the mission of the IPCC was never to study the causes of climate change; were that the case, it might have devoted some of its billions of dollars in revenues over the years to examining solar cycles, changes in ocean currents, the sensitivity of climate to greenhouse gases, or the planet’s carbon cycle. The IPCC has spent trivial sums on these issues, and the authors of and contributors to its voluminous reports have few or no credentials in these fields.

Now consider the NIPCC. It is a scientific body composed of scholars from more than two dozen countries, first convened in 2003 by the great physicist S. Fred Singer and later chaired by another great physicist, Frederick Seitz. The NIPCC’s only purpose is to fact-check the work of the IPCC. It receives no corporate or government funding and so has no hidden agenda or axes to grind. Most of its participants volunteer their time; a few receive token compensation for many hours of effort.

The NIPCC views the claim that human greenhouse gas emissions are causing climate change to be a hypothesis to be tested, not a preordained conclusion. It asks whether the null hypothesis — that changes in climate are natural variability caused by a multitude of forcings and feedbacks — has been disproven. Its research reveals thousands of studies published in peer-reviewed science journals supporting the null hypothesis, meaning that the IPCC’s mountains of data and expressions of “confidence” are irrelevant, meaningless, and ultimately wrong.

  1. “The urgent message from the Federation of German Industries (BDI) warns if the United Kingdom leaves the European Union unilaterally in a so-called ‘hard’ Brexit there would be a “massive crisis” in German industry.”

    Not mentioned by the “remain” politicians and BBC, but Britain as one of the EU powerhouse economies is a very important market for German exporters. The idea that BREXIT would hurt German industry is rarely discussed.

    • Indeed. My beloved lives in Winchmore Hill, a prosperous part of North London. A least a third of the cars (and some houses have three outside) are Mercedes or BMWs, with the odd Porsche or Audi for variety !

  2. “Act Now Idiots, ‘ You Only Have 12 Years to Save the World'”

    The climate-change alarmists are sounding more-and-more like Jehovah’s Witnesses, every day.

    Meanwhile, the JWs are *much* less annoying than (a) they used to be and (b) the greenies. Never thought I’d say that!

    • They worship the creation instead of the creator…The ‘greens’ that is. For It is well within Mankind’s ability to make forest out of Sahara, instead of making another Sahara in the Amazon. But that would take some real effort, not just printing money and giving it away to the green lobby, which is run by some very rich people who fly private jets…

  3. Sorry off topic, but freezoxee.com is offline, under attack! I keep getting a 403 forbidden area text,

    Some left nazis are attacking http://www.freezoxee.com

    Anyone here know anything????? this is disturbing, i cant open there site anymore

    The leftist are now the new nazis, its confirmed!

  4. Re the rape and murder of Bulgarian Journalist – indeed it was a deed of a young Gipsy who is now arrested (or a search is going on for him) in Germany. No politics except the politics of race and identity. Of course the news started with “The Roma ghetto lives in fear of reprisal”, the Gipsies stopped their children from going to school (as if they went there before), “Anxiety among Roma people” etc.
    I wish a person with better English and more time on her/his hands than me would describe the history of Gipsies in Eastern Europe. This is an experiment running over nearly a thousand years that proves with perfect clarity – integration is impossible for these people.

    • The Roma gypsies are originally from north India, they are genetically and linguistically related to Punjabis. One theory has it they were forcibly displaced during the time of the Islamic invasions of India, i.e. taken as slaves and then sent further out in the Muslim regions. However, not sure how they ended up in Europe and why they’re so unproductive.

      • From what I’ve read some years ago, they were the lowest of the low and hence eventually left India in search of a better environment and fair enough freeloading off Europeans seems like a better option.

    • So I tried looking up some kind of source material, but fair enough there seems to be only notes on how badly everyone treated them, instead of at least mentioning they aren’t too keen on becomming a functioning part of society either. This, however, was an interesting find and something England might want to rethink to put into force once more (towards a different group, however): “In 1530, England issued the Egyptians Act which banned Romani from entering the country and required those living in the country to leave within 16 days. Failure to do so could result in confiscation of property, imprisonment and deportation. The act was amended with the Egyptians Act 1554, which ordered the Romani to leave the country within a month. Non-complying Romanies were executed.”
