Beto O’Rourke Suggests America Should Ditch the Constitution

Potential presidential candidate makes stunning claim

Potential presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke has stunningly suggested that the United States should ditch its own Constitution.

During an interview with the Washington Post, the Texas Congressman openly mulled whether the rapidly changing nature of the world meant that the founding document of the country was out of date…

Some analysts think that Beto is more likely to seek a spot on the 2020 ticket as the Democratic vice presidential candidate, but with views like this, many conservatives will want him nowhere near the White House.

[Comment: The constitution will never be out of date you globalist appartchik. Man has the same characteristics and foibles today as then. It was designed to stop men imposing tyranny on others and maximize freedom for all citizens. The problems is that over sucessive decades the government has incrementally IGNORED the constitution. If anything there needs to be a return to adhering to the constitution more closely. ]

Censored: Roku Bans Fan-Made InfoWars Channel Less Than 24 Hours After it Goes Public

Democratic PR firms using false claims to censor Alex Jones

A Note From Alex Jones: There were a lot of wrong reports yesterday by mainstream outlets claiming this was our official Roku channel. This was a fan-made channel with no direct involvement by us, and due to our general popularity it began trending on Roku. Furthermore, it appears that a campaign to ban the channel was orchestrated by Democratic PR firms who were pushing the myth that my broadcast had encouraged listeners to visit and harass the families of Sandy Hook victims, which is an outright lie and a total fabrication. They perpetuate this myth as part of a “clear and present danger” strategy used to suppress our online content by claiming I’m encouraging lawless action when I’m clearly not — and notice they never actually show concrete evidence of what they’re claiming was said. This is simply censorship.

Roku is the latest Big Tech company to censor radio host and TV personality Alex Jones’ Infowars, as the company deleted a fan-made Infowars Live channel less than 24 hours after it went public on the platform.

In a now-deleted tweet, Roku first promised to protect the First Amendment rights of all Americans and allow the content to remain on the platform. It was later followed up with a second tweet explaining their decision to delete the app.

Speaking to Big League Politics via phone, the creator of the channel, John, who preferred to keep his last name anonymous, explained that he is in no way associated with or employed by Infowars. A software developer by profession, John explains that the channel was made as a personal project, so he could enjoy Infowars’ programming on a television set.

Chicago Woman With Concealed-Carry Permit Shoots, Kills Armed Robber

A Chicago man with a long rap sheet tried to commit one crime too many and wound up dead when his would-be victim, who had a concealed-carry permit, shot and killed him.

The incident occurred last Tuesday around 6:00 a.m. A 25-year-old woman whose name has not been released was waiting at a bus stop in Fernwood, a crime-ridden neighborhood on the south side of Chicago, when 19-year-old Laavion Goings, Jr., approached her and attempted to rob her at gunpoint.

Surveillance video shows that the two struggled, and then the woman pulled out her .38-caliber handgun and shot Goings in the neck. She fell to the ground but got up and ran across the street after Goings took off toward his home. He never made it, collapsing in the foyer of a building in the next block, where we was found by police and taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn. He died within an hour. The woman suffered only a minor injury.

Florida 7-Year-Old’s Shooting Death Ruled ‘Justifiable’

The shooting death of a 7-year-old was ruled “justifiable” and no one will be charged, the State Attorney’s Office said, according to a Jacksonville TV station.

Tashawn Gallon was fatally hit in February when gunshots rang out while the boy was outside a house.

The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office cleared the homicide as justifiable on December 18, First Coast News reported.

The man who most likely fired the fatal shot was a relative, Henry Dwayne Smith, Jr., 25, who had been sitting on a cooler behind the boy, First Coast reported.

Article continues belowAs the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office investigated, multiple witnesses refused to cooperate with law enforcement. About five people had been near Tashawn, drinking and smoking marijuana, at the time of the shooting.

The incident occurred in the Durkeeville section of Jacksonville.

The State Attorney’s decision was met with outrage.

Green Berets Targeted After Anonymous Email Exposed Lowered Standards

Two Army Green Berets are fighting for their military careers after being associated with an anonymous email that accused their commanders of lowering standards to enable more soldiers — particularly female — to graduate from its prestigious Q-course.

The anonymous email, signed, “A concerned Green Beret,” accused the leaders of the school of “moral cowardice” for lowering the standards, and weakening instructors’ ability to discipline students as they look to get further through the pipeline.

“[The school] has devolved into a cesspool of toxic, exploitive, biased and self-serving senior officers who are bolstered by submissive, sycophantic, and just-as-culpable enlisted leaders,” the email said. “They have doggedly succeeded in two things; furthering their careers, and ensuring that Special Forces [are] more prolific but dangerously less capable than ever before.”

Pelosi Demands Trump Delay State of the Union Over Shutdown

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday asked Donald Trump to delay his State of the Union address — or deliver it in writing — while the government is partially shut down.

Pointing to security concerns, Pelosi said that the partial shutdown has crippled both the US Secret Service and the Department of Homeland Security, which may compromise security measures that precede the primetime address, according to Politico.

“Sadly, given the security concerns and unless government re-opens this week, I suggest that we work together to determine another suitable date after government has re-opened for this address or for you to consider delivering your State of the Union address in writing to the Congress on January 29th,” Pelosi wrote in a letter to Trump.

Analyst: Pope’s Sagging Popularity Signals Fading Trust in Globalism

The approval rating of Pope Francis declined all over Europe during the course of 2018, a new analysis observed Wednesday, in large part because of his ever-less popular pro-immigration stance and other globalist positions.

Among German Catholics, the pope’s popularity plummeted by a staggering 20 percentage points in one year, notes analyst Francesco Galietti, who runs the political risk consultancy Policy Sonar, and with Francis at its helm, the Catholic Church as a whole also suffered a drop of 9 percent in its approval rating among the same constituency.

EU’s Tusk Suggests the UK Should Cancel Brexit After Historic Defeat for Theresa May

“If a deal is impossible, and no one wants no deal, then who will finally have the courage to say what the only positive solution is?”

European Council President Donald Tusk suggested that U.K. lawmakers revoke the country’s decision to leave the EU, saying it’s the only positive solution left on the table.

His comments came after a historic defeat for U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May, who saw her deal to leave the EU rejected by a margin of 230 parliamentarians.

The approval of the so-called Withdrawal Agreement is seen as essential to ensure that the U.K. doesn’t leave the EU in a disorderly fashion, resulting in WTO trading rules. However, the resounding rejection at Westminster increases the possibility that this scenario will actually happen.

‘Spain Has Turned a Corner’: Four Decades of Socialist Rule Come to an End in Andalucia

On Wednesday afternoon in Seville, as Juan Manuel Moreno Morilla of the Partido Popular (PP) was voted into office as Andalucia’s seventh president, a key invisible borderline will have been crossed in Spain’s modern-day politics.

For the first time in Spain since the death of General Franco in 1975 and the restoration of democracy, a regional government will be formed with the support, if not the direct participation, of an extreme right-wing party, Vox.

In last December’s elections in Andalucia, Vox had already made history by becoming the first far-right party to gain seats in a regional parliament in post-Franco Spain, with Marine Le Pen the first politician outside Spain to congratulate them.

The Peaceful Takeover of Europe

The vast majority of Western politicians and members of the media today appear to be guided by the idea that it is better to be wrong about Francis Fukuyama’s The End of History than to be right about Samuel Huntington’s The Clash of Civilizations. This seems simply an abbreviated expression of a widespread unwillingness, or inability, to call things by their real names. Let us examine the reality that is so hard for many members of liberal societies to acknowledge, and which explains why Huntington’s diagnosis of the current era is far more fitting than Fukuyama’s.

Huntington’s working hypothesis for analyzing current events basically follows German sociologist Max Weber’s “sociology of civilizations.” Yet the term “shock of civilizations” was coined in 1957 by the historian Bernard Lewis, in the aftermath of the Suez crisis.

The clash of civilizations should not be understood, however, in a purely military context. The clash of civilizations in which we find ourselves today is less direct in three main ways.

“And then 500 MPs voted for Article 50… they are our elected representatives, they took the decision, and now they are trying to wriggle out of that,” the Brexiteer said, alluding to MPs attempting to suspend or even stop Brexit to avoid leaving on World Trade Organization (WTO) terms if Prime Minister Theresa May’s EU Withdrawal Agreement is voted down on Tuesday evening.

UK: Historian: Queen Should Suspend Parliament to Stop Remain MPs From Blocking Brexit

Historian and broadcaster Andrew Roberts has urged the prime minister to call on the Queen to suspend the parliamentary session until Brexit takes effect of March 29th, to deny Remain plotters the opportunity to derail it.

The European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 enshrined March 29th as exit day in law, and so a clean, No Deal break with the bloc is now on course by default, given the crushing defeat of Theresa May’s proposed deal in the so-called “meaningful vote”.

The EU Withdrawal Act allows for a minister to alter that date, however, and it could of course be overturned by swift and concerted parliamentary action — and with the Remain-supporting Speaker of the House of Commons John Bercow disregarding the advice of his Clerks and breaking with centuries of precedent in order to allow Remain MPs to amend Government motions in Parliament, and the legislature’s Remain-dominated Liaison Committee scheming to take control of the Brexit process, No Deal could soon be usurped as the default option.

Its defence was pleaded by Environment secretary Michael Gove — a Brexiteer and former ally of Boris Johnson, who was briefly cast into the party’s outer darkness after breaking with the former Mayor of London in an attempt to claim the Tory leadership for himself, in the contest following the EU referendum which ultimately put Mrs May in Downing Street.

2019 Elections: Startling DA Campaign Says ANC Have “Killed” 181 Citizens

The controversial campaign event ahead of the 2019 Elections claimed that the ANC were directly responsible for scores of deaths.

Well, we knew the run up to the 2019 Elections was going to get a bit spicy. Wednesday may have seen the biggest flashpoint of the early campaigning so far, as the DA directly pinned the deaths of 181 people on the ANC.

Although they did not list an exact number, the opposition party stated that victims of Life Esidimeni, Marikana and pit toilet deaths owed their mortality to a negligent government, totalling almost 200 names. They also stated almost

500 000 South Africans have been murdered since the ANC came to power in 1994.

The striking claim was made during a rally in Johannesburg. Thousands of DA supporters — and top guns from the party including John Steenhuisen and Natasha Mazzone — turned up at the corner of Anderson Street and Pat Mbatha Busway to register their disdain with the ruling party.

Government’s R100-Million Smart Primary School — Opened on Wednesday, Robbed on Tuesday

Learners at the new Menzi Primary school started the 2019 academic year with digital boards in front of them, and tablets in hand.

Less than a week later, and the school in Langaville — in Tsakane township in Ekurhuleni — has been robbed.

BusinessTech reported on the opening of the school, detailing how it contained 33 smart classrooms and cost over R105 million to build. This included spending on smart technology like tablets for learners.

The school also contains two smart science labs, two smart multi-purpose rooms, a library, and dining hall.

At the time of the opening, Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi begged the local community to protect the school.

“If you see someone vandalising these schools, report them to the police,” said Lesufi.

In protecting the schools, Lesufi said the community would ensure that the learners of Menzi Primary have a shot at competing in the imminent fourth industrial revolution, reported BusinessTech.

His words were prophetic, and News24 reports that the school has been robbed.

The report stated that criminals broke down the “main vault door” to access keys which could unlock the entire school, early on Tuesday morning.

Two security guards were allegedly tied up while the theft took place, with the administration and IT offices targeted.

185 tablets were stolen, along with 8 laptops, 2 projectors, 3 desktop PCs, a TV, and R500 cash.

Lesufi has subsequently told the local community that they must help find the criminals and the stolen goods, or all the tech equipment will be removed from the school.

This is not the first time a smart school in South Africa has been targeted by criminals looking to take expensive tablets and other tech.

    This is a good thing. This needs to occur across Europe and all countries bringing in moslems. The women must fear all the horrible things that can happen to them and their children or the children they hope to have in the future. Let the fear grow.

    We need women to rise up in anger, out of the fear that rising islamic crime creates.

    This fear will no doubt drive many to outwardly embrace islam or a deeper form of liberalism, in order to regain their sense of security and identity. But many will want to speak out, to act. They will need leaders to rally behind, to help organise them.

    But it all begins with this fear, this insecurity.

    • Mentally-challenged Swedish women will just double down on trying to make excuses for their misogynist islamic rapist oppressors as they continue to bleat their demands for the importation of even greater numbers. After all, it isn’t called Stockholm Syndrome for nothing…

    • This is crazy…You don’t have enough men in Europe to fight muslims today…and you want more ?
      Yeah…why not ?
      The women will get what they wish for…how about children ?

    • “We need women to rise up in anger”…

      You mean…like in Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia and Sudan ?
      If women are the last chance of Europe, then Europe is already dead.
      Men must learn to put crazy women in mental institutions, not in position of power. Only then we have a chance.

      • Actually, I agree, it does not look good. There have been women’s movements in the moslem world which were aborted due to the danger and the apparent lack of interest among women.

        I am actually not very optimistic about the power of women’s voices becoming a deciding factor. Liberalism is too strong.

        I was attempting to put an optimistic twist on this issue and I do believe we will see at least some push back from women in the West. Without at least some movements among Western women against liberalism and islamisation, I’m not sure the few men that are willing to lay down their lives for this cause can battle the entire war against islamisation and liberalism simultaneously.

  2. Maybe the Finns should pretend the heating does not work while the guys are in jail-that will bring them off the idea of raping minors…getting stiff then has a complete new meaning !

  3. “Seeking to communicate the benefits of her new “free” life in Canada, Mohammed posted a photograph of bacon and eggs alongside the caption “Omg bacon”. She also posted an image of herself enjoying a Starbucks in which the girls’ bare legs were also visible.”

    I hope the Canadians have got a good security team watching her as I sense it won’t be long before a soldier of Allah has a go at her.

    • This depends upon how many future votes Trudeau and the Liberals believe they can get from her story. I’m sure security is high, at least for now, since her murder too early in the game will reflect poorly on the Trudeau government.

      It’s funny how feminists love to talk tough against islam when a woman flees a moslem country yet are quite silent on the plight of moslem women in our own country.

  4. “World Exclusive: Sneak Preview of Lauren Southern’s New Documentary “Borderless”” Farmlands was very nicely made, so I’m looking forward to this not only because of the topic, but especially because it’s really hard to come across a good documentary nowadays.
    I’ve seen some people badmouth Lauren Southern for not being patriotic enough and not being ashamed for dating a person of colour previously, but, frankly, I don’t think she ever was about patriotism, she’s more fact-oriented and that’s what’s most important. I don’t understand why it should be neccessary to be ashamed of the past as well. It’s all experience.
    Needless to say being too patriotic can easily slip into nazism and white folks currently need to join not only as Americans, Germans, Poles, etc., but as white folks.

    • It’s all about “pedigree”.
      You must be “pure race” to have some value.

      “It’s all experience.”…

      Yeah…little experience here…little experience there…and…voila…we are today with a lot of new experiences.
      You can make experiences in laboratory…that will work maybe…but in social life…if you mix the wrong ingredients, you get a big explosion.

  5. re: 2 new species of salamanders discovered in Texas :

    Oops … there goes another 40,000 acres of Texas under federal lockdown, to create more “safe spaces” …

    • But then again, this is Texas. They are not known for allowing too much environmentalism to stand in the way of development.

        • Some contract work I did for wetland conservation on the East Texas coast.

          I actually was not implying anything nefarious.

          Texas state and local governments are as you say subject to the EPA and there are plenty of vocal citizens and citizen groups to monitor the gov’t actions. I simply noticed a general culture in Texas, a sort of independant spirit, that they were not completely beholden to the EPA and knew what was best for their own state. The oil industry is not always viewed by Texans as an evil environment destroying entity. They have a more casual attitude toward the needs of the oil industry and since of course they receive so much revenue from it, they are more willing to give it more freedom. Texans work within the rules of the EPA yes but they try hard to prevent development from becoming politicised and bogged down needlessly in red tape. Therefore things move a little faster in Texas than they might in California for instance.
