“Mayor DeBlasio, The Members of NYPD Are Declaring War on You!”

NYC Police Sergeants Union GOES OFF on DeBlasio After Attempted Police Assassinations

The Police Sergeants Benevolent Association (SBANYPD) blasted anti-cop Mayor Bill deBlasio following these most recent attacks on police officers.

Mayor DeBlasio posted a tweet condemning the attacks on Sunday morning.

This was a premeditated assassination attempt against New York’s Finest. It was also an attack on ALL New Yorkers and everything we believe in. This MUST be a city where everyone can live in peace and respect. This individual attempted to destroy that. We will not let him win.

The SBANYPD responded to deBlasio’s tweets.

Mayor DeBlasio, the members of the NYPD are declaring war on you! We do not respect you, DO NOT visit us in hospitals. You sold the NYPD to the vile creatures, the 1% who hate cops but vote for you. NYPD cops have been assassinated because of you. This isn’t over, Game on!

Bigger Than Vindman: Trump Scrubs 70 Obama Holdovers From NSC

President Trump is making good on his promises to “drain the swamp” and cut Obama-era holdovers from his staffs, especially the critical and recently controversial National Security Council.

Officials confirmed that Trump and national security adviser Robert O’Brien have cut 70 positions inherited from former President Barack Obama, who had fattened the staff to 200.

Many were loaners from other agencies and have been sent back. Others left government work.

Bloomberg’s Climate Lawyers Quietly Promote Green Agenda in State Govt.’S

Other Democratic presidential primary contenders may push the Green New Deal, but Michael R. Bloomberg is advancing his climate change agenda behind the scenes with the help of one Democratic state attorney general at a time.

Since its founding in 2017, the billionaire’s State Energy & Environmental Impact Center at New York University School of Law has quietly planted climate lawyers — paid by the center — with Democratic attorneys general in nine states and the District of Columbia despite alarm over what Republicans call his “liberal mercenaries.”

Climate Change Still Ranks as Low Priority in Polls

Recently, I reported on a poll that Gallup has conducted in America every month of every year since 2001. Admirably, it makes no attempt to prompt or influence.

It asks people to name the most important problem facing the country, then it records their answers.

If one seeks honest, genuine insight into ordinary people’s lives, that’s a great approach.

Pew Research Center, another American polling outfit, conducts a different kind of survey. For 25 years (from 1994 to 2019 inclusive), it has read members of the public a long list of pre-selected topics in random order. People have been asked to attach a label to each one.

Coronavirus Case Confirmed in Southern California

SAN DIEGO (AP) — An evacuee from China has tested positive for the coronavirus and has been isolated at a San Diego hospital, The Associated Press has learned.

The person was aboard the first flight from the locked-down city of Wuhan that landed last Wednesday at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in San Diego, according to a person with direct knowledge of the matter who wasn’t authorized to release the information and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Democrats Proud of Their Agenda

WARNING: Graphic photos might be offensive to some but America needs a good dose of reality.

I hope this grabs the attention of Americans who belong to the Democrat Party. Let me give you some examples of your party’s beliefs and agenda.

All of your presidential candidates support murdering an unborn human being with the excuse it’s a woman’s “right” and government has no business interfering with your reproductive rights. Here’s a news flash: There’s no law that says you can’t reproduce. We’re trying to stop you from killing what you have produced by your own choice.

Through modern technology, a baby’s heart beat can be heard as early as 12 days, but usually between 14-18 days before a woman even knows she pregnant. When there’s a shooting, car accident or heart attack victim, what’s the first thing EMTs do? They give CPR to keep the person’s heart beating because when the heart stops the human is dead.

Abortion stops a beating heart and no amount of propaganda can erase that fact.

If you click here, you will see video clip of a baby at six weeks and six days and a beating heart.

Sexual deviant, Pete Buttigieg, supports infanticide or what is called late term abortion. Just like Marxist Hillary Clinton and Hussein Obama. But, Democrats out there — do you really know what that ‘medical procedure’ is?

Gun Seizures Could Lead to Civil War

“Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15,” declared “Beto” O’Rourke at a Democratic party presidential candidate debate in September. Compelling Americans to surrender their so-called assault weapons is “the newest purity test” for Democratic presidential candidates, according to the Washington Post. O’Rourke and other Democratic presidential candidates, including Cory Booker, Kristin Gillibrand, and Bill de Blasio (now withdrawn from the race, as are Gillibrand and O’Rourke) have all endorsed mandatory buy-backs of assault weapons.

Though such proposals are momentarily politically profitable, they could start a cascade of public-policy dominoes that ends in civil war.

When Australia and New Zealand mandated buy-backs of assault weapons, most gun owners ignored the decrees despite politicians repeatedly ratcheting up their threats. Similar noncompliance to laws requiring surrender or registration of assault weapons has occurred in California, New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, and elsewhere.

Joe Scarborough Celebrates Demographic “Freight Train” That Will Collapse GOP

Joe Scarborough is celebrating the fact that a demographic “freight train” will secure electoral success for Democrats far into the future and lead to the “collapse” of the GOP.

The former Congressman and current MSNBC host tweeted, “Democrats have won the popular vote 6 of the last 7 elections. They won a record landslide in 2018. Demographics are a freight train carrying them into the future. The GOPs actions will accelerate their collapse. The future belongs to Democrats if they work hard & focus on 2020.”

Key Witness Told Mueller Team That Russia Collusion Evidence Found in Ukraine Was Fabricated

One of Robert Mueller’s pivotal trial witnesses told the special prosecutor’s team in spring 2018 that a key piece of Russia collusion evidence found in Ukraine known as the “black ledger” was fabricated, according to interviews and testimony.

The ledger document, which suddenly appeared in Kiev during the 2016 U.S. election, showed alleged cash payments from Russian-backed politicians in Ukraine to ex-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

“The ledger was completely made up,” cooperating witness and Manafort business partner Rick Gates told prosecutors and FBI agents, according to a written summary of an April 2018 special counsel’s interview.

In a brief interview with Just the News, Gates confirmed the information in the summary.

“The black ledger was a fabrication,” Gates said.

“It was never real, and this fact has since been proven true.”

Gates’ account is backed by several Ukrainian officials who stated in interviews dating to 2018 that the ledger was of suspicious origins and could not be corroborated.

If true, Gates’ account means the two key pieces of documentary evidence used by the media and FBI to drive the now-debunked Russia collusion narrative — the Steele dossier and the black ledger — were at best uncorroborated and at worst disinformation. His account also raises the possibility that someone fabricated the document in Ukraine in an effort to restart investigative efforts on Manafort’s consulting work or to meddle in the U.S. presidential election.

Obama-Produced Film Wins Oscar, Producer Quotes Communist Manifesto in Acceptance Speech. Obama Praises.

The first Netflix film produced by former President Obama and Michelle Obama’s production company won an award on Sunday during the Oscars and, while accepting the award, the filmmakers recited Karl Marx’s Communist manifesto.

Julia Reichert of “American Factory” received the award and said: “Working people have it harder and harder these days — and we believe that things will get better when workers of the world unite.”

The term “workers of the world unite,” comes directly from the communist manifesto and was widely noticed by media critics.

Report: The White House Has Identified and Will Cut Ties With ‘Anonymous’ Resistance Official

The White House has identified and will be parting ways with the “anonymous” senior Trump administration official behind the critical editorial published in the New York Times editorial in September 2018, and a recently published book, A Warning, according to former U.S. attorney Joe diGenova, who made the claim Monday morning on WMAL’s “Mornings on the Mall.”

Senior White House officials have declined to comment on the subject.

“I am part of the resistance inside the Trump Administration,” claimed the official in their anonymous NYT op-ed.

Saying No to Black History Month

Here we are again folks. February, another Black History Month. Progressives expect my fellow blacks and me to happily celebrate our month. I will not.

BHM is nothing more than a political weapon for Democrats/progressives to spread racial hate and further their lie that America is the greatest source of evil on the planet.

Most American blacks do not realize that many original civil rights black freedom fighters who stood beside Dr Martin Luther King Jr sold their souls to the dark-side after Dr King died. They joined the white Democrat/progressive movement, metaphorically receiving 30 pieces of silver. The agenda of the dark-side is anti-Christianity and anti-American.

Black civil rights youths like Jesse Jackson abandoned Dr King’s divinely inspired mission for blacks to be judged by the content of their character rather than the color of their skin. Instead, the post MLK black civil rights movement became all about skin-color, exploiting it in every way. Suddenly, Jesse Jackson and other racism-pimps became rich by claiming every problem plaguing blacks in America is the result of racism. Terrified corporations paid-off Jackson and other race-hustlers to shut-up and back off.

Secretary of State Pompeo Speaks to US Governors — Says China Has a List of Sell-Out Governors and He Has Seen it (Video)

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo spoke to the National Governors Association last week. During his speech Pompeo told the governors that China is keeping a list of the governors and China is rating US governors as “friendly, hardline, or ambiguous.” China knows who is “friendly” and who have sold out.

Then Secretary Pompeo dropped this bomb, “Last year a Chinese government-backed think tank in Beijing produced a report that assessed all fifty of America’s governors on their attitudes toward China. They labeled each of you friendly, hardline, or ambiguous. I’ll let you decide where you think you belong, someone in China already has. Many of you, indeed, in that report, are referenced by name. So here’s the lesson. The lesson is that the competition with China is not just a federal issue which is why I wanted to be here today.”

Pompeo has seen the list.

This must have sent a chill down the spine of many of those state leaders sitting in the room.

Senator Ted Cruz Podcast Verdict Hits Two Million Downloads in First Two Weeks

A huge number of podcasts of many genres these days either start off, or end up as, political in one way or another.

But now, there is also the growing trend of politicians themselves turning to this media to speak to their voters, having spotted this direct channel to communicate, unencumbered by third-party platforms and rules.

Podcasts are easy for people to download and listen to, and easy to produce and put on the internet — and the success of this form of content distribution was sure to attract politicians, or at least their campaigns who are able to publish content they fully control, and establish a sense of immediate and intimate communication with their listeners.

New ‘Reaper of Death’ Tyrannosaur Species Discovered in Canada

Paleontologists discovered a new species of tyrannosaur that roamed the earth 79.5 million years ago, after identifying a fossil uncovered in Canada.

Known as Thanatotheristes degrootorum, the species is one of the oldest ever found in North America and is directly linked to Tyrannosaurus rex, researchers said on Monday.

The name alludes to the dinosaur’s role a fearsome apex predator and was apparently inspired by Thanatos, the Greek god of death, and theristes (one who reaps or harvests).

BBC Studios Gives Greta Thunberg Her Own TV Series

BBC Studios is making a TV show with 17-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg.

The project was announced at the BBC Showcase trade show on Monday.

No network, release date or the number of episodes have yet been set.

Here is the description for the series, which comes from the studio’s science unit.

“The series will follow Greta’s international crusade, which takes her to the front line of climate change in some of the most extraordinary places on earth, as she explores what actions could be taken to limit climate change and the damage it causes.

As she travels Greta meets not only leading scientists but political leaders and business heavyweights, exploring the scientific evidence with them and challenging them to change.

The films will also chart her own journey into adulthood as she continues to be confronted by the real-world consequences of inaction; and will share some of the quiet moments as she writes the impactful speeches that are now broadcast and analyzed around the world, as she lives a teenage life like no other.”

Mila, Teen Who Criticised Islam on Instagram Moves School

A French teenager who criticised Islam on Instagram has moved to a new school after receiving death threats.

Education minister Gabriel Attal told broadcaster LCI on Monday that they had found a new school for Mila “to allow her to continue her life”.

Mila, 16, sparked a national row over free speech when she called Islam a “religion of hate”.

The teen’s criticisms prompted fury but also drew support in France, where there are no laws against blasphemy.

Her comments about Islam came after she received homophobic abuse from a Muslim commenter. Supporters started the hashtag #JeSuisMila (I am Mila), while critics responded with #JeNeSuisPasMila.

Orban Certain EU to Agree Satisfactory Outcome to Next Budget

Prime Minister Viktor Orban said on Monday he was certain European Union member states would reach an agreement on the bloc’s next budget that would satisfy everyone, adding, however, that more time was needed to get there.

Speaking to reporters ahead of talks with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin, Orban noted the next EU budget was among the issues on the meeting’s agenda, adding that although Hungary and Germany had disagreements on the matter, EU leaders with experience in putting together an EU budget would “certainly” find a way to strike a deal.

Orban said he and Merkel will also discuss bilateral matters with European dimensions. The prime minister said Merkel was keen to discuss issues relating to European competitiveness and industrial policy at next month’s EU summit. Orban said this would be a crucial summit, arguing that the most important question was how Europe may regain its competitiveness.

Sinn Fein Eyes Government, Irish Unity Poll After Election Surge

DUBLIN (Reuters) — Sinn Fein on Monday said it wanted a major role in Ireland’s next government after a record election showing, a move that would raise its central goal of reunification with Northern Ireland near the top of the agenda in Dublin for the first time.

The left-wing Irish nationalist party stunned the establishment by beating the two center-right parties that have led every government in the country’s history, almost doubling its vote share from the last election to 24.5%.

Sinn Fein’s low number of candidates meant, however, that it fell just short of the largest number of seats on 37, behind the centre-right Fianna Fail on 38 but for the first time above Prime Minister Leo Varadkar’s Fine Gael, which fell to 35 seats.

The Italian Years of Lead: Could the Secret “Strategy of Tension” Foreshadow America’s Future?

While there are some in the United States who believe we are headed toward another Civil War, there is perhaps another, more recent parallel worth exploring — the so-called “Italian Years of Lead.” The short version is that in the late 1960s through the early 1980s, Italy was a hotbed of assassination, shoot-outs and bombings between various factions of the far-left, the far-right and the Italian government — with American, British and Soviet intelligence agencies often pulling the strings. While the death toll was a lot lower than it could have been, it’s a fascinating and oft-overlooked area of history. When all was said and done, the Italian political landscape had been radically changed. Thousands of leftists were forced to flee the nation, but ultimately, shocked by the violence, Italian politics moderated. Did we mention that a Masonic Lodge came very close to overthrowing the government? Strap yourself in. You’re about to take a bumpy ride down an obscure historic lane, where “truth being stranger than fiction” is most certainly true (and well documented)…

43,000+ Coronavirus Cases May be ‘Tip of the Iceberg’ As Death Toll Passes 1,000

The death toll from the coronavirus sweeping across China and surging around the globe passed 1,000 Monday amid warnings that the 43,099 known cases may be “the tip of the iceberg.”

Chinese health officials said 103 more deaths were reported Monday, putting the death toll at 1,016. All but two of the deaths have occurred on the Chinese mainland, most in and around the city of Wuhan.

The mortality rate of the virus also inched upwards Monday, going from 2.2 percent to 2.4 percent. Coronavirus is still significantly less deadlier in terms of mortality rate, as the SARS epidemic of 2002 resulted in a 9.6 percent fatality rate.

Amid Virus Outbreak, Funeral Home Officials in Wuhan Reveal Sharp Increase in Cremations

A senior official at a crematorium in the coronavirus epicenter of Wuhan, China, says their intake has skyrocketed in recent weeks, suggesting that more people are dying of the disease than officially reported.

Beginning around Jan. 22, the number of dead bodies received by the government-operated funeral home has drastically increased—peaking at 127 bodies on Feb. 3, the official said, adding that he’s been seeing about four to five times the usual workload.

The official made the revelations during a Feb. 4 phone call by an undercover reporter for the Chinese-language edition of The Epoch Times, who posed as a member of the central government task force overseeing the outbreak response. This publication is withholding the name of the official and funeral home to protect his identity.

China is Literally Dragging People Out of Their Homes and Sending Them to “Mass Quarantine Camps”

How would you like to be dragged out of your home and shipped off to a camp? Sadly, that is what is happening to countless numbers of Chinese citizens right now. Anyone that is sick or anyone that has been in contact with anyone that is sick is being rounded up and sent to a “mass quarantine camp”.

In some cases, people are literally being dragged out of their homes kicking and screaming. If this virus was only about as dangerous as the common flu, China would not be resorting to such draconian measures. Of course, once someone gets sent to a camp where they are surrounded by hordes of others that are already infected, it is inevitable that that person will become infected too. So in a lot of cases, getting shipped off to one of these “mass quarantine camps” will essentially be a death sentence.

At first, Chinese authorities were literally locking sick people into their own homes, but apparently they did not feel that was being effective enough.

So now the communist Chinese government has ordered local officials in Wuhan “to round up all suspected coronavirus patients” and confine them in camps…

Chinese Military Hackers Charged in Equifax Breach

The defendants are all members of the People’s Liberation Army, an arm of the Chinese military

Four Chinese military hackers have been charged with breaking into the computer networks of the Equifax credit reporting agency and stealing the personal information of tens of millions of Americans, the Justice Department announced Monday.

The four are also accused of stealing the company’s trade secrets, law enforcement officials said. The defendants are all members of the People’s Liberation Army, an arm of the Chinese military.

The case comes as the Trump administration has warned against what it sees as the growing political and economic influence of China, and efforts by Beijing to collect data on Americans and steal scientific research and innovation.

“This was a deliberate and sweeping intrusion into the private information of the American people,” Attorney General William Barr said in a statement.

Coronavirus Spread Outside of China May be the ‘Tip of the Iceberg:’ WHO Chief

All countries should prepare for the arrival of the new coronavirus, the head of the World Health Organization said on Sunday, as he warned that the current number of cases confirmed in countries outside of China might be “the tip of the iceberg.”

The overwhelming majority of the confirmed cases around the world are in China, where the new virus started in December 2019. But a growing number of cases have been confirmed in other countries, with patients testing positive in over two dozen countries.

Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the head of the World Health Organization (WHO), urged countries to take advantage of “the window of opportunity created by the containment strategy to prepare for the virus’s possible arrival.”

There have been multiple concerning instances of human-to-human transmission from people who haven’t traveled to China, Ghebreysus added on Twitter.

“The detection of a small number of cases may indicate more widespread transmission in other countries; in short, we may only be seeing the tip of the iceberg,” he said.

‘Diamond Princess’ Reports 66 New Coronavirus Infections, Bringing the Total to 136

The Diamond Princess, the cruise ship that has been quarantined off the coast of Yokohama, Japan for roughly a week now, saw the total number of confirmed nCoV infections climb to 136 on Monday, cementing its position as the host of the largest outbreak outside China.

Japanese health authorities have been extremely careful in dealing with the ship, which has become a massive albatross for the government of PM Shinzo Abe. While Hong Kong let a cruise ship sail yesterday following a 4-day quarantine (the ship was reportedly found to be free of viral infections), the ‘Diamond Princess’, and the 2,500+ remaining passengers and crew, will be stuck in place until mid-February. The NYT chronicled the growing sense of unease and paranoia aboard the ship, which we cited yesterday.

The ship’s captain Stefano Ravera announced Monday that 66 new cases of the virus had been confirmed, bringing the infection total of passengers and crew to 136, roughly equal to all the other cases in Asia outside China. Media reports have claimed more than 2,500 passengers and crew remain aboard the ship.

Equifax: US Charges Four Chinese Military Officers Over Huge Hack

The US has charged four Chinese military officers over the huge cyber-attack on credit rating giant Equifax.

More than 147 million Americans were affected in 2017 when hackers stole sensitive personal data including names and addresses.

Some UK and Canadian customers were also affected.

Announcing the indictments, Attorney General William Barr called the hack “one of the largest data breaches in history”.

According to court documents, the four are allegedly members of the People’s Liberation Army’s 54th Research Institute, a component of the Chinese military.

The two are able to engage in a limited form of conversation as the mother caresses the representation of her daughter while crying.

Changing America’s Culture to Everybody Else’s Culture

“Diversity within a nation destroys unity and leads to civil wars,” said social scientist Garret Hardin. “Immigration, a benefit during the youth of a nation, can act as a disease in its mature state. Too much internal diversity in large nations has led to violence and disintegration. We are now in the process of destabilizing our own country. The magic words of destabilizers are ‘diversity’ and ‘multiculturalism’.”

Today, over 45 million foreign-born people now live in America as our Congress imports in excess of 1.5 million legal and illegal immigrants annually, their negative impact on America’s culture rains down on cities and ascends to the Halls of Congress. Ironically, all of it counters U.S. culture built over the past 240 years.

In the past month, House of Representatives member Jesus Garcia (D-IL), introduced, HR 5383, a bill he calls, A New Way Forward. Forty-four other democrats, such as Omar, AOC, Tlaib and Waters, who exhibit extreme anti-American bias, sponsored the bill. It promotes illegal alien citizenship, criminal deportee aliens a free pass back to America, open borders, anti-ICE enforcement of America’s immigration laws, and worse, American taxpayers foot the bills. It abolishes our right to control who comes over our borders into America.

Reporter Tucker Carlson exposed the bill last week, “A document produced by Democrats to promote the bill says: ‘Convictions of convicted criminal undocumented immigrants should not lead to deportation. Keep in mind, we’re not talking about convictions for double parking. The bill targets felony convictions — serious crimes that send you to prison for years.” A press release from Rep., Jesus Garcia, D-Ill., is explicit about this portion of the bill.

(AP) — Greece is planning to use emergency legal powers to create detention centers for migrants on five islands to try and speed up deportations back to Turkey, officials said Monday.

Areas have been earmarked to create the new facilities on Lesbos and four other islands in the eastern Aegean Sea to eventually replace existing camps that are severely overcrowded, government spokesman Stelios Petsas said.

Swiss Voters Back LGBT Discrimination Proposal

Swiss voters on Sunday endorsed a proposed law that would make it a crime to discriminate against individuals on the basis of their sexual orientation or sexual identity.

Opponents of the law argued that it could restrict free speech, while those of Switzerland’s LGBT community say that their sexual identities should be protected under the law in the same way that racial and religious identities are protected.

Results from Sunday’s vote revealed that 63.1 percent of Swiss voters backed the proposal which outlaws anti-gay discrimination and makes it illegal to publicly denigrate, discriminate against someone based on their sexual orientation, SwissInfo reports.

Twitter Blue Checkmarks Blame Men for Birds of Prey Flop, Slam Media for Framing it as “Worst Opening Weekend”

In its opening weekend, Birds of Prey took just $33 million domestically and $48 million internationally for a total haul of $81 million.

The numbers are way below Warner Bros. projected $45 million domestic opening and estimates are suggesting that the movie needs to make $100 million domestically and $300 million globally to break even.

When compared to other DC movies, Birds of Prey has had the worst opening weekend of all the movies in the DC “Extended Universe” and the second-worst opening ever for a DC comic book movie with 2010’s Jonah Hex’s being the worst and bringing in just $5.3 million domestically.

US Museum Targets Gender Gap by Acquiring Only Works by Women

An American museum has come up with a bold way to boost women’s participation in the arts: this year it will only acquire works by females. The Baltimore Museum of Art, in the state of Maryland, is best known for housing the largest public collection of Matisse works anywhere in the world. Late last year it attracted major press attention with word that in 2020 it would only purchase works by women, drawing both praise and skepticism.

“I think it’s a radical and timely decision in 2020, to take the bull by the horns and do this,” the museum’s director Christopher Bedford told AFP. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the adoption of the 19th Amendment to the US constitution, which gave women the right to vote. It also gave the museum pause to do some soul-searching: of its 95,000 works, only four percent are by women artists, says Bedford.

“We’re an institution largely built by women leaders,” he said. The museum’s first director was a woman. And it is largely thanks to two women-the Cone sisters-and their friendship with Henri Matisse that the museum boasts such a rich collection of works by the French artist…

Windows 7 Will Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night: Ageing OS Refuses to Shut Down

It’s not only end of support that Windows 7 diehards have to contend with. Late last week a new problem emerged — systems that refuse to shut down.

Complaints have been widespread on Reddit, Microsoft’s official Answers forum and on on SevenForums. Some users also reported other issues, such as not being able to view their documents folder in Explorer.

Fortunately the problem seems to be fixable in most cases. The favourite solution is to tweak the UAC (User Account Control) settings with the Group Policy setting “Run all administrators in Admin Approval Mode” or the equivalent registry setting. Then run gpupdate/force, and everything goes back to normal.

  1. The item about Swedish commies… same thing has happened in Eastern Europe. People end up voting for communists, for crying out loud, because often they are the only party with a conservative social agenda.

    • Baltika was my favourite beverage before I read your post. Never again I will buy. Kiss the Russians for me and tell them they should boycott the company altogether. If you don’t, the Muftia and the ilk will dare to impose more rules on your lives.

      • Survive time is here again. Duck and dive – bob and weave or stay completely still.
        Lie cheat and steal. Practice talking out of both sides of your mouth. Sounds like the Koran?

  2. The Swedes I imagine will be the first if any to remove that cross from their Christian flag. It must be so enraging to conquering mudslimes of all ages. However Stockholm still has that Nordic Viking look about it. Whereas London has clearly gone Mogadis-
    uesque. Boris is throwing up massive vanity projects that could only come from a newly oiled Middle Eastern mind. A real cowboy.

  3. Look what a funny story!

    In St. Petersburg, police officers sorted out the unusual relationships of 67-year-old businessman Alexei and his 33-year-old girlfriend Mukhaye, who came to Russia last year to earn money from Uzbekistan.

    Roman Muhaye and an elderly businessman did not last long. The girl waited for the opportunity and decided to rob the businessman’s apartment. At this point, the merchant already trusted her so much that he left alone at home. The pensioner’s chill immediately took advantage of this. Alexei had three million rubles in the safe. Only there was one problem: you can’t open it, and the weight of the metal box was about 50 kilograms.

    Muhaye did not give up! She shook the safe in a sheet and dragged it out of the apartment. Her works were recorded on surveillance cameras from the entrance. (video)

    https://www.spb.kp.ru/daily/27090/4162624/

    Maya was going to Moscow at the time of her arrest. From the capital, she wanted to fly to Uzbekistan. As for the money, the lady admitted to the police – there was not a penny left! She managed to spend part, and part transferred to relatives.

  4. How do they know Microshaft didn’t cause these unable to shutdown errors?
    Turning off all updates and any MS security app is the first thing to do with a windows box.
    Security in layers with anti-spyware and rootkit as anti-virus programs are now just an obsolete system resource hog.

  5. President Donald Trump is getting rid of the dead weight within the Washington D.C. swamp now that his impeachment trial has come to an end. In addition to the firing of Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman and Lt. Col. Yevgeny Vindman last week, Trump has dismissed 70 employees from the National Security Council (NSC), many of whom have ties to former President Barack Obama. This could be the first of many cuts coming within the NSC. National security adviser Robert O’Brien has said that the intention is to get the NSC down to roughly 100 employees, far less than the 700 bureaucrats that Obama employed while he was vastly expanding power in Washington D.C… Get them !!
