UK Employment and Earnings Rising, But European Economies Continue to Falter

positive while indications for the European Union progressively worsen, with the latest figures showing another rise in the number of people in employment, and wage rises in Britain.

While anti-Brexit politicians and the mainstream media have gone large on the economic damage deciding to leave the European Union is doing, the actual economy continues to outperform the doom-laden forecasts.

Accused ISIS Sniper From Brooklyn Would ‘Take Up Arms’ If Released: Feds

A former Brooklyn man accused of being a top ISIS sniper admitted he would “take up arms” in support of the terror group again if he was released, prosecutors claimed Wednesday.

Ruslan Maratovich Asainov, 42, who was busted in July on charges of providing material assistance to a terror group, was ordered to stay behind bars at his arraignment in Brooklyn federal court, with Judge Nicholas Garaufis agreeing he posed “a danger to the community.”

Democrats, Lay Off My Hamburger and My Guns

For seven long, agonizing hours on CNN, last Wednesday night, 10 of the 2020 Democrat presidential candidates went round and round on who could out do each other on how much taxpayer money they were going to spend to reduce the threat of the alleged crisis of man-caused global warming, euphemistically and deceitfully called “Climate Change.” (Of course climate changes.) Good OLD socialist, one-foot-in-the-grave Bernie Sanders topped the list with proposing to spend $16 trillion American taxpayer dollars to solve a climate variability that could very well and in all likelihood, either be a natural phenomenon, or defy a solution.

At no time during these seven hours was there a discussion on whether the crisis was so great and so imminent that government must act quickly and spend trillions of taxpayer dollars to “save the planet”, or whether the science behind climate change was hopelessly and purposely flawed and there was nothing that man could do about it anyway. To all the Democrat/socialist participants in the CNN town hall meeting, the science is settled. It makes no difference that there are volumes of credible scientific papers that debunk Democrat/socialist climate change.

Democrats Admit Trump Helped GOP Candidates Sweep North Carolina Special Elections

President Trump, as he often does, took credit on Twitter for something happening.

In this case, it was the special election wins in North Carolina on Tuesday. GOP state Sen. Dan Bishop narrowly won the 9th District House seat and Greg Murphy stomped to victory in the solid Republican 3rd District. In both races, Democrats poured in millions of dollars to try to defeat the GOP candidates.

“Dan Bishop was down 17 points 3 weeks ago. He then asked me for help, we changed his strategy together, and he ran a great race. Big Rally last night. Now it looks like he is going to win.

@CNN & @MSNBC are moving their big studio equipment and talent out. Stay tuned!” Trump wrote on Twitter as the returns came in.

Dems Secretly Trained Thousands of Activists to Manipulate Media, Clinton Library Docs Show

The Democratic party developed an elaborate, multi-year operation in the 1990s that deployed thousands of activists to covertly mold public opinion using talk radio, according to documents from the Clinton Presidential Library.

The Democratic National Committee (DNC), with the blessing of the Clinton White House, launched the Talk Radio Initiative (TRI) ahead of the 1996 campaign. The program trained thousands of operatives to call in to radio shows, conduct surveillance of their contents, and secretly disseminate Democratic talking points while posing as ordinary listeners.

“Volunteers must be able to keep the project confidential so as not to create the image of a ‘Democratic conspiracy’ to infiltrate Detroit area talk radio shows,” a 1995 TRI guide prepared by Michigan Democrats said. “Democratic performance in the 1996 elections will no doubt be affected by the success or failure of this initiative.”

Although he remains a heavy favorite to win re-election, Trump’s odds are now in plus-money on Bovada.

Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) March 23 dismissal of the Islamic terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 — describing the murder of thousands of Americans as “some people did something” — is “disgusting,” said Johnny Spann, father of Mike Spann, a former CIA officer and the first American killed in the war in Afghanistan.

Spann joined Wednesday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow on the 18th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

Homeless Man Knocks Teeth Out of 7-Year-Old Boy in Random Attack

7-year-old Yaromir Potapova is recovering but traumatized after having one of his adult front teeth punched out by the homeless attacker.

“It’s like bothering me every single day,” said his mother, Valeriya Potapova. “He’s afraid to go to the park now. He’s stressed.”

She says last Wednesday morning Yaromir was riding his scooter with his little sister and grandmother on the West Side Highway near 52nd Street.

He was a few feet ahead when she says he stopped to let them catch up but was suddenly attacked.

“A guy jumped out of a bench, hit him in the face,” said Valeriya. “He didn’t say anything, just hit him in the face and walk away.”

Police identified the suspect as 67-year-old Ryan Fran shortly before arresting him. He is reportedly charged with assaulting a child under 11, assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest.

Valeriya questioned why mentally ill individuals like Ryan were able to roam freely in NYC to begin with.

“It shouldn’t be like this, people with mental issues shouldn’t walk outside,” said Valeriya. “We might be lucky because he didn’t have a knife, he didn’t hit him with a rock. He didn’t kill him.”

“September 11th was an attack on all of us. We will never forget the thousands of Americans who lost their lives in the largest terror attack on U.S. soil,” Omar wrote.

It’s 2019, And Windows PCs Can be Pwned via a Shortcut File, A Webpage, An Evil RDP Server…

Patch Tuesday Microsoft, Adobe, and SAP today delivered a load of security updates for this month’s Patch Tuesday. 80 bugs squashed in Redmond

It will be a busy day for admins and users of Windows PCs and servers, as Microsoft has released updates for a total of 80 CVE-listed bugs.

Among the more serious issues addressed this month are CVE-2019-1215 and CVE-2019-1214, a pair of elevation-of-privilege vulnerabilities that have been under active attack in the wild.

In both cases, experts say, miscreants are going after older machines. CVE-2019-1215 preys on Winsock, specifically ws2ifsl.sys, a service that has been targeted by malware since 2007, while the exploit for CVE-2019-1214 is largely looking to target Windows 7 boxes. These flaws can give malware on a machine admin-level access to hijack the whole box.

“This is a fine time to remind you that Windows 7 is less than six months from end of support, which means you won’t be getting updates for bugs like this one next February,” said Dustin Childs of the Zero Day Initiative.

“Patch your systems, then work on your upgrade strategy.”

Massive Email Fraud Bust

US prosecutors say 281 suspected criminal hackers around the world have been arrested as part of a massive takedown operation against so-called business email compromise operations. That’s the type of caper in which crooks hijack executives’ email accounts, or impersonate the staffers, to trick colleagues into wiring funds to fraudsters’ accounts.

In a coordinated effort dubbed Operation reWired, law enforcement officers from the US, UK, Nigeria, Turkey, Ghana, France, Italy, Kenya, and Malaysia arrested people they believe to have been running targeted phishing and fraud campaigns against businesses worldwide.

In total, 281 arrests were made and around $3.7m in cash was seized by police. In America alone, 74 people have been arrested, while Nigerian police cuffed 167 suspects. According to US attorneys, the massive law enforcement action included agents from the FBI, Secret Service, Postal Inspection Service, IRS, the State Department, and Homeland Security Investigations as well as more than two dozen US Attorneys offices.

Prosecutors believe that those arrested were running sophisticated scams that involved either taking over or impersonating the email account of someone who runs or partners with a targeted business, then instructing workers at the business to send a check or wire transfer to an account controlled by the scammer. Other arrestees are accused of laundering this money.

41-Year-Old Disabled Man Euthanized After Government Health Officials Decide to Cut Funding for in-Home Care

A 41-year-old disabled man was put to death after government officials cut funding for his in-home care.

Sean Tagert was euthanized on August 6th in Canada.

Sean had ALS or Lou Gehrig’s Disease.

Life News reported:

Canadian Sean Tagert, aged 41, was killed by assisted suicide after health officials decided to cut the funding for his in-home care hours.

Mr Tagert suffered from Motor Neurone Disease (MND) which is known in Canada as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). His illness reduced his ability to move his body, eat or speak, however his mental awareness remained unaffected. Doctors recommended 24-hour in-home care to support Mr Tagert.

However, Vancouver Coastal Health, initially only offered Mr Tagert 15.5 hours of care a day, which was then raised to 20 hours a day, meaning that Mr Tagert was forced to pay $263.50 a day for the remaining care that he needed to survive.

According to Grandin Media, on social media, Mr Tagert wrote a status which explained that two Vancouver Coastal Health officials visited his home and confirmed that they were cutting funding for his already inadequate care hours.

After receiving this news Mr Tagert wrote a number of devastating social media status’s which read: “So last Friday I officially submitted my medically assisted death paperwork, with lawyers and doctors, everything is in proper order. It’s been a month since I submitted my appeal to the Vancouver Coastal Health patient care quality department. They didn’t even respond….Welcome to the great Canadian healthcare system.”

Mr Tagert was killed by assisted suicide on August 6th.

Italy: Gentiloni Talks to Von Der Leyen

Ex PM aiming for economic affairs commissioner

(ANSA) — Rome, September 6 — Italy’s candidate for the European Commission Paolo Gentiloni on Friday had an hour’s talks with European Commission President-designate Ursula von der Leyen.

The talks took place in an atmosphere of “great friendship,” sources in Brussels said.

Von der Leyen showed Gentiloni around the offices of her transition team. The talks are aimed at helping the former German defence minister complete her team which she will unveil on Tuesday.

Gentiloni is said to be in pole position for the post of Economic Affairs commissioner, replacing Pierre Moscovici of France.

Failing that, Rome is hoping to place him at the trade portfolio, with a place as vice president too.

Gentiloni has also been mentioned for the competition portfolio.

The Financial Times said Friday that that is where Gentiloni will end up after von der Leyen shuffles her cards, as competition commissioner.

Gentiloni, chairman of the centre-left Democratic Party (PD), is a former premier and former foreign and farm minister.

On Monday von der Leyen will see outgoing European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker.

The day after, Tuesday, she will present her team of commissioners.

Italy is a country of great weight in the European Union and can certainly expect to get a major portfolio on the new European Commission, but nothing has been decided yet as the picture has not been completed, diplomatic sources told ANSA Friday.

Outrage in Italy After Vicious Liberal Journalist Tells Salvini to Go Kill Himself

Over a public radio broadcast, an Italian journalist urged Italy’s former populist Interior Minister and leader of the League party Matteo Salvini to ‘commit suicide’, causing a wave of solidarity in favor of the country’s most popular politician.

On September 4th, Fabio Sanfilippo, editor-in-chief at RadioRai, took to Facebook to post a hateful comment against Salvini, Italy’s La Repubblica reports.

“You should hang yourself. You are going to lose 20 to 25 percent of the voting intentions, do you know? And what will you do? You have no work, you do not know how to do anything, you do not have the seat of a deputy, you have lost the post of minister. It is true, you are in Parliament, but without the life that you had the habit of leading, within six months you will shoot yourself, dear enemy.”

“Dear enemy”? You see? He slipped his tongue. There is no such thing as a neutral media or journalism. You are either on one side or the other. The difference is that the leftist side always LIES and pretends to be neutral while the RIGHT side usually kinda agrees in the open that they are on the right.

UK: Brexit and the Deficiencies of Parliament

It is remarkable that the UK Parliament has spent almost a year of debates about the Brexit deal agreed by Theresa May’s government and the European Union. Indeed, about one small detail of that deal. We shall briefly describe what that detail is before explaining that the inordinate resulting delay reflects deep and longstanding dysfunction in the whole parliamentary system of the UK.

The deal consisted of two documents, the Withdrawal Agreement (WA, 585 pages) and the Framework for the Future Relationship (FFR, 26 pages). Most of the WA consists of regulations obviously needed for winding up UK participation in EU institutions, settling mutual debts, safeguarding the interests of UK citizens resident in the EU and vice versa, and the like. Even Boris Johnson regards all that as basically good and necessary.

UK: Rise of the Remainers: Labour Plans to Bring Down Govt, Lib Dems Back Cancelling Brexit

Reports have revealed that the Labour Party is planning to vote down the Queen’s Speech next month and attempt to topple the Conservative government with a confidence vote, whilst the rabidly pro-Remain Liberal Democrats plan to rally behind revoking Article 50, cancelling Brexit altogether.

The reports come after Parliament was prorogued last night for five weeks ahead of a new parliamentary session and Prime Minister Boris Johnson lost a second vote in the House of Commons calling for a mid-October election to clear out the lower house of Remainers and break the Brexit deadlock. Despite a new law stopping a no deal Brexit and forcing the prime minister to request another three-month Brexit delay of the EU, Boris Johnson has vowed that he will not ask for an extension and will take the UK out of the EU, as pledged, on October 31st.

Anti-Erdogan Rap Video ‘I Can’t Keep Quiet’ Goes Viral

Song against government repression

ISTANBUL — A rap video titled “Susamam”, “I can’t keep quiet”, protesting the Turkish government of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has gone viral in Turkey, having garnered more than three million views as of Friday, just one day after its release on YouTube.

The 15-minute video showcases about 20 musicians sharing their points of view on the country in light of the events of recent years.

The rap’s title quickly became one of the most-shared hashtags on social media, sparking intense debates.

It touches on topics such as the arrest of government opponents, including activists and journalists.

The rap’s lyrics include phrases such as: “Now I’ll think twice before tweeting. I find myself scared of my country’s police. If one night they send me to jail for no reason, you won’t find a journalist to write about it because they’re all in prison”.

On Friday Canan Kaftancioglu, the leader in Istanbul for opposition party CHP, was sentenced to nine years, eight months in jail for tweets she posted between 2012 and 2017, some of which were related to the Gezi Park protests.

Child Shoved in Oven, Man Shot in the Face With Shotgun in Savage South Africa Robbery

With her grandson in the oven, she just prays.

When robbers ordered her three-year-old grandson to climb into an oven, she could do nothing but sing for Jesus.

‘Jesus let Your angels descend on me’, says Annelize Swanepoel about her reaction to the gruesome events that took place at her home in Del Judor in eMalahleni (Witbank) last Wednesday.

“I didn’t know what they were going to do next.

“One of the attackers silenced me and told me not to pray for him,” she says.

“They ordered Franco (her grandson) to get into the oven, but never threatened to do anything to him. They gave him a soft drink and a banana while he stared at him quietly and motionless, “she says.

There was only R73 in her bank account and this upset them greatly.

Shortly thereafter, her husband, Peet, arrived home. He was shot in the face with a shotgun before he could respond at all. He died on the scene.

Annelize says she went to pick up Franco like his mother every other morning. “I walked home just after 7 am and went straight to the kitchen. When I opened a kitchen cupboard, five men appeared.

“All five-pointed their weapons at me. At first, I thought it was a joke. I then started screaming and one of the attackers ripped my cap off my head and pushed it down my throat. When I bite his fingers, he punches me in the face. “…

Annelize says the most painful moment for her was when police informed her that her husband’s most reliable worker was linked to the robbery.

“He was my husband’s right hand and his left hand. If my husband lit a cigarette, he lit one for his worker and if he made coffee for himself, he also made for the man. “It’s hard for me to understand how the worker was apparently waiting at the gate while he knew what the attackers were doing with us inside the house.”

American Maoists Send 4 Delegations to Venezuela in Less Than 6 Months — is This Legal?

For the fourth time since April, U.S. Maoists from the Freedom Road Socialist Organization (FRSO) have sent a delegation to Venezuela.

These delegations are clearly in support of Venezuela’s Marxist regime. They organize support and solidarity for the regime and clearly propagandize in its favor. They also clearly side with the Maduro regime against President Donald Trump.

Is this legal under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA)? Are any of these delegates registered with the U.S. government as agents of Venezuela? If not, why not? Are there grounds for prosecution under FARA?

Big Trump Admin Win: Supreme Court Slaps Down Rogue Federal Judge, Blocks Nationwide Injunction on New Asylum Rules

The Supreme Court handed the Trump administration a big win on controlling mass illegal immigration with a ruling temporarily blocking enforcement of a nationwide injunction issued by rogue federal Judge Jon Tigar against new Trump administration rules on applicants for the much abused asylum process.

The case has been a battle between the administration and the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals on one side and Judge Tigar and immigration activists on the other. Tigar renewed a nationwide injunction this week after being stopped by the 9th Circuit, which again blocked Tigar’s nationwide injunction, narrowing it to just the 9th Circuit, before the Supreme Court stepped in and slapped Tigar down completely.

  1. In March, you wrote about the riots in Yakutia because of the rape by migrants of a local resident by the Kyrgyz.
    ————-
    In Yakutia, three migrants from Kyrgyzstan were convicted of kidnapping and raping a local resident. One of the defendants received 14 years in a maximum security colony, the other two – 4 years and 6 years in a general security colony. The crime caused a public outcry and massive anti-migrant actions in the region.

    ========
    Yakuts are more expensive. For raped Russian women and children, the punishment is not so severe.

  2. The stories about Johnson refusing a pact come from Huff co leftist liars. Several evil remain rumours are being spread right now designed to try and show that Johnson is weak/stupid/vacillating. I wish people would check the sources before repeating rumours that help the scum of the EU and their creatures in the UK.

  3. The fight against anime recognized extremism

    Organizer of bullying Dagestan anime lovers received a suspended sentence

    In November 2018, the AniDag festival was to be held in Makhachkala for the seventh time, dedicated to comics, anime cartoons, and Asian culture. However, the local showman Eldar Iraziev on his Instagram page compared the festival to a gay parade, after which calls for “not to allow debauchery” and “to wet informals” began to spread in Dagestan social networks. Near the building of the Avar Theater, where the festival was held, about 150 aggressive young people gathered, many of whom were in T-shirts with the inscription “Imamat of Dagestan.” For the safety of visitors, the organizers interrupted the festival; teens leaving the theater were filmed, insulted and threatened.

    As participants in the festival told Kommersant, the police not only did not interfere with this, but also expressed regret that they could not join the opponents of the festival.
    This story was widely discussed in the media, but its interim outcome went unnoticed. As the newspaper “Youth of Dagestan” found out, one of the organizers of the Internet harassment of Makhachkala anime fans was convicted in July 2019. The Soviet District Court of Makhachkala sentenced a student of the Financial and Industrial Academy, 18-year-old Akhmad Israpilov, to probation for two years in prison, setting a year of probation.

  4. Regarding elections in Canada, to speak of Trudeau’s sinking popularity and surging challengers is incorrect:
    – currently polls show Justin Trudeau’s liberal party winning the elections
    – the liberals are bouncing off a significant low but are now slightly ahead of conservatives vote-wise
    – the conservatives have nearly as much popular support as the liberals, but it is heavily concentrated in western provinces that do not carry that many seats.
    – conservatives have been slightly hampered by the creation of a split, populist party, the People’s party of Canada (which polls only at 2-3%)
    – a party left of the liberals, the NDP, is at risk of collapse. It was a minor party (20% of the vote and 40 seats out of 338 in 2015) but has been losing voters and will lose many seats
    – its voters have gone further left still to the Greens that are surging, as in many other countries, or to the Liberals.
