Ald. Ed Burke Charged With Racketeering in Sweeping Indictment

For more than a year, powerhouse Chicago Ald. Edward M. Burke had been trying to land the developer of Chicago’s Old Main Post Office as a client for his private law firm.

By October 2017, he’d had enough. He found himself alone with Ald. Danny Solis — a secret federal informant wearing a wire. Burke’s anger boiled over. He told Solis the developers “can go f — — themselves.” Then, Solis told him the company’s TIF funding would soon land in front of Burke’s stronghold, the Finance Committee.

“Well, good luck getting it on the agenda,” Burke allegedly said.

Now, Chicago’s longest-serving alderman has been charged with racketeering and bribery in a stunning, highly anticipated 59-page federal indictment filled with detailed allegations of classic Chicago graft. It not only accuses Burke, 75, of using his position to steer legal business to his private firm, but it also alleges he used the City of Chicago as a criminal “enterprise” as part of the racketeering charge — a law first devised decades ago to combat mobsters and organized crime.

Attempts to Impeach Trump Residue of a Bull

The moment Donald J. Trump was elected as President of the United States, while Hillary screamed and wailed in the distance, efforts were made to….impeach him. What? Even though 68 million voters, many voting for the first time, put him in office, the Communist Democrats and Muslims wanted him out the moment the results were tallied while they were all having nervous breakdowns. In my 85 years on this earth, this is the very first time I ever witnessed impeachment discussions before the president had even moved completely into the Oval Office.

The Marxist leaders whose intentions are to put America under Communist dictatorship along with the New World Order were panicked out of their skin. The “Progressive Democrats” have shown that they, like the Communists, are anti God and anti family. They saw their stated ideals crumbling before them as the final election results came in. This explains the rush to get President Trump out of office before he even got into that office.

Baby Bust: Millennial Birth Rates Plunges to Three-Decade Low

A new report from the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) shows that US birth rates continue to plunge, hitting a three-decade low in 2018, as millennials delay marriage and children due to economic uncertainty.

In 2018, women ages 15 to 44 had a birth rate of 59 births per 1,000, which is 2% lower than in 2017, and the lowest on record since 1909, according to the report.

CCRKBA Slams Software Company’s ‘Corporate Policy of Coercion and Social Bigotry’

Breaking news that a San Francisco-based business software company is dictating to certain retailers what they can or cannot sell at the risk of being unable to use its software was slammed today by the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms as a form of “corporate coercion and social bigotry.”

The Washington Post reported that Salesforce.com advised retailers such as Camping World to stop selling certain types of semiautomatic rifles and ammunition magazines or face losing the use of the company’ business software.

“This is outrageous,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. “Here are companies selling perfectly legal products according to the requirements of federal law, and just because those products happen to be a certain class of firearms and accessories, the companies are essentially facing being black-balled. Our friends at the National Shooting Sports Foundation, an industry umbrella group, rightly call this ‘corporate policy virtue signaling.’“

Eleven People Killed in Shooting at Virginia Beach Municipal Complex, Police Say

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — A longtime municipal employee in Virginia Beach shot and killed 11 people Friday afternoon and injured several others inside a public works building before he was killed in an exchange of gunfire with police, city officials said at a news conference.

Police Chief James A. Cervera said an officer was among the six wounded but was saved by his protective vest. He said the gunman, whom he did not identify, “fired indiscriminately” on several floors of the building, one of many in a complex near the center of the city.

“This is the most devastating day in the history of Virginia Beach,” Mayor Bobby Dyer said. “People involved friends, co-workers, neighbors, colleagues.”

The shooting occurred about 4 p.m., near the end of the workday, as workers were winding down for the weekend. City Councilman Aaron R. Rouse Tweeted, “Pray for our City!” He later said, “This day will not define Virginia Beach.?.?.We will come together.”

Gov. Ralph Northam, who came to the scene, called it “a horrific day for Virginia.”

“Our thoughts are with the victims and their families,” Northam said.

Harvard Professor Says Finding a Dead Alien Civilization Could Save Humanity

What’s better than finding aliens? Finding dead aliens. Why? Because it might be the only thing that gets humanity to straighten up and fly right. At least, that’s according to Harvard University professor Avi Loeb who said as much at the Humans to Mars Summit in Washington D.C., in a talk which I assume was titled “Scared Straight in Space.”

Professor Loeb appears to believe, like many people do, that humanity is at a crossroads and our shortsightedness and technological progress combined may be a lethal mixture. At the summit, Loeb argued that we may be such wayward children that we might need to see the direct consequences of horsing around with nuclear weapons and all of the other potential big bungles we’ve got cooking up. He says that a propensity for planetary suicide might be more common than we think, and might be one of the solutions to the famous Fermi paradox, which basically states that there’s a whole bunch of reasons why we should have found aliens by now, but we haven’t.

Maxine Waters Let Obama’s Cat Out of the Bag in 2013

Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), one of the left wing’s most prominent and vocal figures, has a 30-year history of ill advised, frothing rhetoric. “Auntie Maxine” is atop no one’s list of vise-lipped confidantes, yet because of her prominence, she is clued in on much of the darker machinations of the Democratic Party and its backers. Occasionally, she reveals more than intended. February 2013 was one of those times.

From Roland Martin’s television show:

“The President has put in place an organization with the kind of database that no one has ever seen before in life[…] … That’s going to be very, very powerful[…] … That database will have information about everything on every individual on ways that it’s never been done before and whoever runs for President on the Democratic ticket has to deal with that. They’re going to go down with that database and the concerns of those people because they can’t get around it. And he’s [President Obama] been very smart. It’s very powerful what he’s leaving in place.”

Many observers at the time (myself included) found this statement a bit of a head-scratcher, as the database to which Ms. Waters referred was not immediately apparent.

Merkel Attacks Trump in Harvard Speech

German Chancellor Angela Merkel took aim at Donald Trump’s world view in a speech on U.S. soil, saying unilateralism risks bringing down post-World War II alliances and trade wars threaten the “foundations of our prosperity.”

“More than ever, our way of thinking and actions have to be multilateral rather than unilateral,” Merkel said in a commencement speech to Harvard University’s class of 2019 that combined tough criticism of nationalist policies with philosophical vistas of a change for the better.

Merkel, 64, was addressing a receptive audience on Thursday as she seeks halt a deterioration in the trans-Atlantic alliance under Trump’s presidency. In her 14th year in office, officials in Merkel’s government are beginning to speak of a point of no return in U.S.-German relations.

Mueller Tried to Entrap Trump

Mueller had a plan. He would use his witchhunt to anger the president enough that he would try to stop the investigation and if he didn’t, compile as much information that could be painted as obstruction for his report, which could then be used as a template for impeachment, where the threshold is lower because the House decides what are “high crimes and misdemeanors.” Attorney General William Barr put a stop to that.

Prior to the report’s submission, Barr ordered Mueller to highlight the 6e (grand jury material) that by law could not be publicly released. Mueller disobeyed that order, thinking it would force a delay in releasing the report because redaction would take time. This would impel Barr to release Mueller’s summaries if he didn’t want to be accused of a cover-up, thus allowing Mueller to set the narrative for the Democrats’ push (putsch?) to impeach.

Instead, Barr created his own summary. Hence, Mueller’s subsequent letter (which Barr called “snitty”), written to be leaked and promptly leaked, was a means of regaining control of the narrative. In the letter, the special counsel complained about Barr’s four-page memo, which incidentally, he refused an offer to review.

He didn’t expect his old friend Barr to call him and ask him directly whether there were any inaccuracies in the summary, to which Mueller was forced, multiple times, to admit that there were not. We know this because Barr testified to it under oath.

On Wednesday in front of the press, a visibly shaken Robert Mueller (Sean Davis called him “doddering”) resigned from the DoJ, smeared the president as probably guilty, said he wouldn’t take questions, and if forced to testify in front of Congress, would only reiterate what was in his report. Since when does a witness get to decide which questions he will answer?

The Fake News Must Wither and Die

The power perverts and their want-to-be power puppets of the media have little regard for bringing honest information and entertainment to the public. They will use or sell their position for the pleasures of power. In this power grab, they work the news to fit what they want us to believe. With the selected information, they transmit, they more than make a departure from their honest function. They use deceptive, descriptive words, they will give or withhold publicity to people of their choosing. They will give their approval or disapproval of actions. The “spin” they give to the news is only to influence us and shape a system suited for their master’s pleasure. Thereby they shape events at every level of life into their ideal image. It appears that their conduct and language are directed against the public order and the tranquility of state. This constant ridicule and stirring up of disorder of the very country in which they live, is the meaning of sedition. Not only is there enough evidence of sedition to bring formal accusation, but there could also be a good case for conspiracy and treason. In a message presented to Congress in 1917, Congressman Oscar Callaway stated, “In March 1915, the J.P. Morgan interests…and their subsidiary organizations…got together 12 men high up in the newspaper world and employed them to select the most influential newspapers in the United States and sufficient number of them to control generally the policy of the daily press…They found it was only necessary to purchase the control of twenty-five of the greatest papers. An agreement was reached; the policy of the papers was bought, to be paid for by the month; an editor was furnished for each paper to properly supervise and edit information regarding the questions of preparedness, militarism, financial policies, and other things of national and international nature considered vital to the interests of the purchasers.” In regards to the media of his day, Abraham Lincoln said, “He who molds the public sentiment… makes statues and decisions possible or impossible to make.”

To show the danger of the undisciplined Fourth Estate and the treason that can result, here is what David Rockefeller, founder of the Trilateral Commission said in an address before the media power brokers in June of 1991… “We are grateful to The Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine, and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto determination practiced in the past centuries.” Auto determination is single determination, such as a government with a Constitution. It is a sovereign Nation, autonomous, having of itself the power of determination.

Nils Melzer urged Britain not to extradite the Wikileaks founder, warning that his human rights would be violated and that he is not fit to stand trial.

He also accused “several democratic states” of a “concerted effort to break [Assange’s] will”.

Opinion Polling for the 2019 Greek Legislative Election

In the run up to the 2019 Greek legislative election, various organizations carry out opinion polling to gauge voting intention in Greece during the term of the 17th Hellenic Parliament. Results of such polls are displayed in this article. The date range for these opinion polls is from the previous legislative election, held on 20 September 2015, to the present day. The next legislative election will be held no later than 20 October 2019, though it may be held earlier if a snap election is called.

Polls are listed in reverse chronological order, showing the most recent first and using the dates when the survey fieldwork was done, as opposed to the date of publication. Where the fieldwork dates are unknown, the date of publication is given instead. The highest percentage figure in each polling survey is displayed with its background shaded in the leading party’s colour. If a tie ensues, this is applied to the figures with the highest percentages. The “Lead” columns on the right shows the percentage-point difference between the parties with the highest percentages in a given poll.

Salvini Wrong to Bang Fists on Table at EU — Berlusconi

Former Italian premier takes part in EPP meeting

(ANSA) — Brussels, May 28 — Forza Italia leader Silvio Berlusconi said Tuesday that Deputy Premier Matteo Salvini was wrong to take a confrontational approach to the European Commission. The ex-premier was commenting after Interior Minister and League leader Salvini reacted angrily to the prospect of the Commission sending Italy a letter calling for clarification over its public debt. “The letter is an automatic thing. No decision has been made,” Berlusconi said following a meeting of the centre-right European People’s Party (EPP) after he was elected to the new EU parliament. “It’s a rule of life. If you are dealing with someone and want to get them to agree to your proposals, you have to create an atmosphere of cordiality and respect.

“Banging your fist on the table, raising your voice or even saying, as has happened in the past, that you have to speak to (Commission President Jean-Claude) Juncker before 10 o’clock because after he’s drunk is the worst way to get agreements that are favourable to us”.

Russian Jets Unleash Hell on Idlib After Ceasefire Talks With Turkey Collapse

On Thursday over five Russian fighter jets began launching airstrikes over the Idlib Governorate following the collapse of ceasefire talks with Turkey.

According to a military source in northwestern Syria, the ceasefire talks collapsed after Turkey demanded that the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) withdraw from all the areas they captured in northwestern Hama.

The Russian military reportedly rejected Turkey’s demands and restarted their aerial campaign over the Idlib province.

The Syrian Air Force had already launched airstrikes over the Idlib Governorate on Thursday, but the Russian military had only carried out limited attacks due to their ceasefire talks with Turkey.

The source added that the Syrian Army has yet to receive the green light to resume their ground offensive against the jihadist forces in northwestern Hama.

The Turkish regime had been pushing for a new ceasefire deal around the Idlib deescalation zone after their rebel allies lost a great deal of territory in northwestern Hama.

North Korea Execution Reports — Why We Should be Cautious

It is being reported across international media that North Korea’s nuclear envoy has been executed as part of a purge of officials involved in a failed summit between the US and North Korea.

But there is a reason we treat reports about North Korean officials being executed with extreme caution. The claims are incredibly difficult to verify and they are very often wrong.

Both the South Korean media and the government in Seoul have reported on purges in the past — only for the “executed” officials to turn up a few weeks later looking alive and well next to the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

A Brutal Reality in South Africa

Reporters from the Swedish weekly newspaper Nya Tider (New Times) have traveled to South Africa to investigate whether the “Rainbow Nation” is the success story that Swedish establishment media sometimes say — as far as they are at all interested in the land that has been in the media focal point until 1994. We met with politicians, farmers and victims. Thousands of farmers have been murdered in the Rainbow Nation, and the fear is always present…

Five years ago I visited a farmer community outside the city of Nylstroom and two years ago I did a follow-up. When I came to the same area again last week, I was met by several tragic news. Several attacks have occurred in the neighborhood. An elderly couple had been murdered in their home, the older woman had been raped and burned up. The perpetrators had left empty liquor bottles at the scene and set fire to the house before they set off. We spoke with a 28-year-old woman who lost her husband in a farm attack that took place outside Nylstroom at the end of last year. This was the second husband the young woman had lost. The perpetrators had broken into the house when the couple slept and stabbed her husband to death with a screwdriver. The woman grabbed a knife and fought for her life, thus escaping being raped, but she was also badly cut. The perpetrators held a knife to the couple’s infant to force the mother to open the gun cabinet and then murdered her husband when his four-year daughter watched.

Many white farmers would naturally flee South Africa if they could. However, most are settled in the country for economic reasons, including an elderly lady I spoke with, whose daughter had been stabbed to death eight months ago. She had been stabbed with a knife in front of her two little boys. The elderly woman now wants to move to Europe or Australia, but has no economic opportunity to even move to a safer part of South Africa.

A White Farmer is Killed Every Five Days in South Africa and Authorities Do Nothing About it, Activists Say

Activists say South African authorities are tacitly approving attacks on the country’s white farmers, with one being murdered every five days, and the police turning a blind eye to the violence.

The white nationalist lobbying group AfriForum says that when lawmakers passed a motion last month which could see land being seized from farmers without compensation, it sent a message that landowners could be attacked with impunity.

It said there have been 109 recorded attacks so far in 2018 and 15 farm murders, meaning that this year, one white farmer has been killed every five days.

In a statement, Ian Cameron, AfriForum’s Head of Safety said: “Our rural areas are trapped in a crime war. Although the South African government denies that a violence crisis is staring rural areas in the face, the numbers prove that excessive violence plague these areas.”

Land Reform and Farm Murders in South Africa: The Untold Story of the Boers and the ANC

Before going any further, terms should be defined and the key players identified:

ANC: The African National Congress, the leading party in South Africa since the end of apartheid. Afrikaners: Dutch— German— and French Huguenot-descended white South Africans who primarily speak a language called Afrikaans. Bantu: A group of black South Africans including the Xhosa (of which Nelson Mandela was a member) who originally lived in the northeast of the country. Boers: A subset of Afrikaners who still lead a rural and agricultural existence. Democratic Alliance: Currently the second-largest party in the South African parliament, the Democratic Alliance is a broad-based centrist party that is comparatively economically liberal for South Africa. It enjoys broad, multiracial support, though it is most popular among all racial minorities — white, Coloured and Indian. Its black supporters are often derided as “clever blacks” by ANC supporters. EFF: The Economic Freedom Fighters, a far-left political party in South Africa that has pushed the South African government to seize land from white farmers. Sometimes derisively called “Everything for Free,” the EFF is the third-largest party in South Africa, but is poised to become the second. Khoisan: A popular name for the original inhabitants of most of the territory now known as South Africa. This is not an ethnic designation, but a linguistic one. These are who the Dutch settlers first encountered. […] What’s more, the attacks on white farmers in South Africa tend to have pitched levels of brutality about them. Without getting too lost in the weeds of the grizzly details, it’s worth mentioning some of the more grotesque attacks on farmers at least in passing:

In 2012, a 12-year-old boy was drowned in boiling water after watching both his parents murdered and his mother raped. A 56-year-old grandmother was gang raped during a robbery netting approximately $2,000. Five men sexually assaulted a woman in front of her 5-year-old son over the course of an hour and a half. Over the course of six hours, a woman was tortured by having her skin cut off, raped and had her feet power drilled. A 66-year-old man was beaten to death in front of his wife. She escaped being gang raped by saying that she had HIV. Bedridden Alice Lotter, 76, and her daughter Helen, 57 were tortured to death over several hours, including by being stabbed in the genitals with a broken glass bottle. One had one of her breasts removed while still alive. “Kill the Boer” was painted on the wall in their blood. Knowledge Mandlazi went on a killing spree in 2014, murdering five whites and stating that “My hate for white people made me rob and kill.” He held up his middle finger to surviving victims in the courtroom.

Another common form of attack is the land invasion. In one example, 100 men began squatting land. The farmer did the sensible thing and left. Who could blame him in the kind of environment described above?

Far from being a “white nationalist conspiracy theory,” farm attacks have been reported on and denounced by Human Rights Watch and former Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbot. Afriforum, a wing of Christian trade union Solidarity, likewise reports on farm attacks regularly…

The Untold Story of South African Land Reform and Farm MurdersAnti-white racism is a popular current in mainstream South African politics. The song “Kill the Farmer, Kill the Boer” is still publicly sung, despite this being declared a hate crime. The traditional means of protecting rural South Africans, the commando units, were disbanded in 2003, leaving many South African farmers with no protection.

Anti-white rhetoric in South Africa is very real and very mainstream. Here are a few examples:

Velaphi Khumalo, a government official, stated on Facebook in 2016: “White people in South Africa deserve to be hacked and killed like Jews.” Ekurhuleni EFF Leader Mampuru Mampuru posted on Facebook in 2018: “We need to unite as black People, there are less than 5 million whites in South Africa vs 45 million of us. We can kill all this white within two weeks.” Major M.V Mohlala, a senior official in the South African National Defense Forces, said of the murder of a 76-year-old white professor: “It is your turn now, white people… [he] should have had his eyes and tongue cut out so that the faces of his attackers would be the last thing he sees.” He received a mere warning of future disciplinary action. The EFF’s national leader Julius Malema stated in 2018: “Go after a white Man… We are cutting the throat of whiteness.”

Murder Rate for These White Farmers 20 Times International Average

South African minority facing genocide incited by government

Over a two-year time span, South African Claudine Van Wyk lost three beloved family members in a series of gruesome farm attacks in the troubled African nation.

Her story is hardly unique.

The horrendous violence that has become so common in South Africa is a terror that even cross-border violence or irrational violence against a religious minority doesn’t approach.

And the attacks are viewed by many experts as the signs of genocide, warning top government officials are inciting, if not participating directly in it.

The trigger for the latest murder and mayhem against whites is the land owned by descendants of Europeans who arrived generations ago and built up what is now becoming known as “Rainbow Nation.”

Among those ramping up the hatred is South African President Jacob Zuma, who sings a song about genocide and is now seeking to expropriate white-owned farms without even providing compensation.

Here’s Zuma singing the genocide song:

Nine Gruesome Farm Attacks That Shocked South Africans

Nowhere in the world have people being brutally attacked and murdered by black attackers like white farmers in South Africa. It is reported that every 17 hours for the last five years, a white person was either attacked or murdered by black in their homes. Between January 2010 and January 2015, more than 2 500 violent attackers by blacks against whites were registered. 2008 of the whites were tortured to death and suffered mental torture by being forced to watch the gang-rape of their wives and daughters.

Below is a recollection of some of the bloodiest, cruel murders against farmers who died at the hands of merciless murderers who savagely bludgeoned innocent people, including children.

WARNING SOME OF THE IMAGES ARE NOT FOR SENSITIVE VIEWERS

Farm Murder 1

During 2011 — Andre (Brood) van der Merwe (49) was shot four times on his farm by black attackers, tied with barbed wire and dragged behind his bakkie, while still alive, for 1.5 kilometers. He died from his injuries sustained during the torture.

Farm Murder 2

During 2015 the Swanepoel couple were tied to a single bed and tortured for hours. The black attackers took turns to rape Rienie, and her husband was forced to watch. They then shot Toon in the leg because he was fighting back. Toon was later shot dead. Rienie was then made to lie on her husband’s body before she was killed.

Farm Murder 3

In 2010, the shocking Potgieter farm massacre horrified South Africans. Forty-year-old Attie Potgieter was attacked by a gang of six blacks when he arrived home. The attackers chopped the back of his head with a machete and stabbed him over 150 times, with a garden fork. He died from the injuries sustained in the attack. In an execution style, the gang shot his wife, Wilna, aged 36 in the back of her head at close range. The gang shot the three-year-old child Willemien in a similar fashion. The gang left a message scribbled in Sotho on the gate saying “We killed them, we are coming back.”

Farm Murder 4

What happened to the Fourie family in 2011 is inhuman and the most awful story. John aged 77, and his wife Bina aged 76 died a horrendous death at the evil hands of a four-man black gang in 2011. The couple were shot in the knees and tortured for about seven hours. The criminals took John to the bathroom, and shoved a showerhead down his throat, then poured boiling water down his throat. At point blank range they shot his skull off. Meanwhile, his wife, Bina, was shot three times in the knees and her back and left to die from loss of blood…

Farm Murder 7

Johan Strydom (40) attacked on his farm by three attackers. He is chained to his bakkie and dragged behind it. The court hears that he was “probably alive” before being dragged and died of a burst liver and cracked skull. A journalist had quoted one of the perpetrators as saying he was “proud of what he had done.” This same offender was arrested a month earlier for trying to kill another farmer but was released.

Pompeo Probe Into SA ‘Farm Killings’ A Work in Progress — Nagy

The US State Department is still, in a sense, busy with the investigation which President Donald Trump controversially ordered in his August 22 tweet when he said he had asked his Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to investigate the ‘large scale killing of farmers’ and the South African government’s ‘seizing land from white farmers’. No doubt the State Department is still investigating, because land reform is still a moving target.

Trump tweeted: “I have asked Secretary of State @SecPompeo to closely study the South Africa land and farm seizures and expropriations and the large scale killing of farmers. South African Government is now seizing land from white farmers.”

That provoked an uproar in South Africa, including a sharp retort from President Cyril Ramaphosa, which essentially told Trump to mind his own business.

The Murders So Brutal They Shocked Even South Africa: Couple Shot Dead, Then Son Aged 12 is Drowned in Scalding Bath

Even in a country that sees 44 murders a day, the case has left the public horrified.

A gang of robbers gunned down a father, raped and murdered his wife.

Then, in a final act of sickening brutality, they drowned the couple’s 12-year-old son in scalding bath water.

Amaro Viana was murdered to prevent him from identifying the three housebreakers who carried out the raid in suburban South Africa.

The gang included the family’s gardener and the son of a domestic servant.

Despite a recent improvement in crime statistics, South Africa remains one of the most dangerous countries in the world.

An average of just under 44 people a day are murdered there.

This compares with 1.5 in England and Wales, which has a similar sized population.

Apart from war zones, South Africa’s murder rate is surpassed only by Latin American nations embroiled in gruesome battles between drug gangs.

White South Africans Are Being Slaughtered and the Media Ignores it

Murders are increasing as they’re slaughtering men, women, children, and infants in front of the mothers and mothers in front of infants. These criminals are raping the women in front of their fathers on the farms.

Now of course, you haven’t heard any of this from CNN or MSNBC. Not even Fox News will run it, but I’ll bring it to light because this is a genocide occurring in front of our eyes.

In fear of what is to come, farmers are trying to leave South Africa before they are slaughtered. Australia has granted refuge to white farmers both in the Mandela era and now. In response, liberals screamed that Australia was racist for granting refuge to white farmers inferring that they should have stayed there to be butchered.

These farmers have also appealed to Russia seeking to resettle. A delegation consisting of some 30 South African farming families arrived in Russia’s farm belt region asking the local authorities to consider resettling up to 15 white farmers or Boers as they are known colloquially. Speaking to RT, the head of the delegation said, “Moving to Russia is a matter of life and death.” The region’s Deputy Commissioner for human rights Vladimir Poluboyarenko said, “There is a plan in place to resettle up to 50 Boer families and potentially some 500 families who would arrive in Russia with their own cattle.”

[Comment: White South African farmers are being systematically butchered is no myth — their murder rate is 20 times the national levl.

President Trump Takes Necessary Bold Action Against Mexico Until Illegal Immigrants “Stop”

President Trump just took bold action against Mexico and promised to escalate it until the illegal immigrant surge to the U.S. border stops. He knows the president of Mexico is enabling the illegals to come to our border.

The president announced a 5% tariff on Mexico beginning next month.

The tax will then “gradually increase” until the problem with thousands of illegals coming to the U.S. border is “remedied” and illegal migrants “STOP.”

The president had to take action against Mexico because their president is doing nothing to stop the literal invasion to our border.

He’s been talking out of both sides of his mouth. When the future president was speaking to a crowd during his campaign, he spoke about immigration to the U.S.

He said, Mexican Citizens “must leave their towns and find a life in the United States”

Here’s What the Globalists Fear Most

Why was Winston targeted by the Thought Police?

The globalist fear YOU, a free-thinking individual, the most.

Remember the novel 1984 in which the Thought Police were threatened by Winston, a lone individual who simply started questioning authoritarian rule.

The establishment rules through consensus, and if people start thinking for themselves, their system of control will collapse like a castle of sand battered by the waves.

Professor Accused of ‘Hostile Learning Environment’ For Assigning Male Authors

‘Sexist’ business scholar reported to bias response team

A 22-year old female University of Utah student reported her business professor to campus administrators for, among other things, assigning too many historical texts written by influential male economists of the past.

“I understand the importance of studying the work of those before us and the importance of context,” wrote the student in a complaint to the university’s bias reporting system, where she labeled the professor’s transgressions “derogatory,” “degrading,” and “intimidating,” thereby causing a “hostile learning environment.”

University of Chicago Student Says He Received Death Threats Over Pro-Life Bill

University of Chicago student government member Brett Barbin says that he has received death threats over his pro-life bill which would have prohibited mandatory student fees from funding student abortions.

Student government member Brett Barbin said that he introduced the pro-life legislation as a means for ensuring that no student who finds abortion in violation of their conscience would be forced to fund it through the school’s mandatory “student life” fees.

The pro-life student told Fox News on Thursday that he has since received death threats for his legislation, which was voted down in a student government meeting by 15-1, Barbin being the only student government to have voted in favor of the bill.

With Free Speech Zones and Safe Spaces for All…

Each year during graduation season we are treated to what amounts to the closing ceremony of the Olympics of virtue signaling on college campuses across the nation. The competitors — students who have spent four years in training — huddling in safe spaces to avoid speakers with whom they disagree, using the free speech zone to learn what they’re supposed to be offended by, and demanding ridiculous measures be adopted by university administrators to remedy every perceived ill in human history. The gold medalists in this farce are the “walk-outs” — the students who draw as much attention to themselves as possible by walking out of the commencement ceremony in protest of the commencement speaker. This year is no different; ask Vice President Mike Pence.

Beyond the risk of causing most Americans to suffer repetitive stress injury from excessive eye rolling, this trend presents a real threat that must not be taken lightly. These students are being taught a perverse version of freedom. Namely that freedom is the right to never be made uncomfortable. Once these putative tyrants of “tolerance” graduate, they will inevitably be confronted with people and ideas very different from their own and they will react in the manner for which they were applauded in college — they will seek to silence opposition. My firm, First Liberty Institute, deals with the repercussions on a daily basis.

  1. We’re in Israel: the security level is as high as it can be set right now. The entire old city is blocked off. It is the perfect storm with Shabbat and the end of Ramadan coinciding. Supposedly a knifing of a 14 year old Jewish boy on a bicycle last night. Even activated the checkpoint on the road to Masada in the middle of nowhere. We speculate they are looking for someone or some group owing to. Intel info.

  2. Honest reports about the genocide of whites, ongoing in South Africa. Well done, while the Pope bows towards Mecca, seemingly bewitched.

  3. What a cavalcade of tasty news links. Thanks.

    We need South African farmers in our rural areas. We should send two ships, one for the people, and another for their portable stuff. Land them in Veracruz, and pass them through the border.

  4. Italy is in the driver’s seat here. What is Brussels going to do to the third biggest economy in the EU, the fourth most populous, the sixth in the world in national wealth? Kick them out?

    No. The EU would quickly collapse.

  5. About Virginia Beach. I’ve been to that complex, back in the day. Very sad.

    How to Survive an Active Shooter: What You do Before, During and After an Attack Could Save Your Life (Conversations) by Jacquelyn Lynn.

    It is a good book, filled with common sense tips and unexpected advise that could save you.

  6. Re: Professor accused of “hostile learning environment” (due to the high proportion of male economists whose work was taught).

    Feminists have often complained that women have historically been denied the same opportunities to excel as men, and it’s a reasonable point (whether they would do equally well in all fields, given a level playing field, is a separate debate, and given that while the genders are of roughly the same average intelligence, there are more male “outliers”, ie both geniuses and the “hard of thinking”, perhaps there’ll always be more male Bachs and Einsteins). However the history exists; get over it.
