As Critics Slam UChicago for Black Studies-Only Commitment, Campus Spokesman Defends It

The University of Chicago has come under heavy criticism for its recent announcement that it will only accept graduate student applicants to its English Department who are interested in Black Studies for the 2020-21 school year.

“English as a discipline has a long history of providing aesthetic rationalizations for colonization, exploitation, extraction, and anti-Blackness,” according to a statement from faculty explaining the decision.

Observers and watchdogs have called the commitment everything from idiotic to a political litmus test.

How the Government Uses Fear to Control

Acting as quasi-government agencies, public health organizations such as the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization are pushing vaccines using the same fear tactics, while simultaneously removing the regulatory oversight that used to ensure vaccines are properly safety-tested.

Corruption in the political system, however, has destroyed the trust these agencies need to get people to willingly take these fast-tracked vaccines, and this despite the fact that the media keep regurgitating the prescribed propaganda. Kennedy also highlights how people like Dr. Anthony Fauci and Bill Gates are helping to promote this global vaccination agenda.

“Point a finger at that source of their fear and you can make human beings do anything you want. You can make them go to the slaughter like sheep; you can make them obey.” ~ Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

As a result of all this corruption, there’s no independent, unbiased buffer between greedy corporations and the world’s most vulnerable populations — our children. This is a global problem, Kennedy says, and the press is facilitating it by helping to create so much fear in the peoples’ minds that they will obey whatever the health agencies say, no matter how illogical the demands.

Insurrection — or Just a Peaceful Protest?

2020 is not just a critical election year, it’s the year of the global socialist “insurrection” intent on overthrowing the Constitutional form of Government in the United States. Nothing like this has ever been seen before, anywhere in the world…

18 U.S. Code §2383. Rebellion or insurrection — “Whoever incites, sets on foot, assists, or engages in any rebellion or insurrection against the authority of the United States or the laws thereof, or gives aid or comfort thereto, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.”

“If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.”

Obama is the Power Behind the Biden Teleprompter

Obama is still important, not only because he’s hawking a new book, but because he’s the power behind the Joe Biden candidacy.

While conservatives note the references by Democratic vice-presidential candidate Kamala Harris to a planned “Harris Administration,” a Joe Biden victory will in reality be another Obama Administration, a third term for our 44th president. Anybody who gets Democratic Party email messages about the election understands that Obama is the fundraising hook or ploy in most of them. Biden can’t motivate the left, but Obama can.

The latest such message, entitled, “President Obama believes. We do too,” comes from the Democratic Association of Secretaries of State. In effect, Obama is raising funds for a presidency that will feature Obama, rather than Biden, as the president, and Harris will continue to function in a subsidiary role. Obama is not going away and is the real power behind the Biden teleprompter.

In effect, the race is between Trump and Obama — not “Sleepy Joe.” Biden’s foreign policy advisers once worked for Obama and gave us the carnage in places like Syria. They are agitating for another Middle East war.

The night did not go well for Antifa and BLM. In addition to new distraction and flanking tactics being used against them by law enforcement that resulted in arrests of nearly a dozen insurrectionists, the heroes of the Left were actually egged by a Portland apartment dweller apparently fed up with the riots.

Revolver Exclusive — Meet Norm Eisen: Legal Hatchet Man and Central Operative in the “Color Revolution” Against President Trump

This third installment of Revolver News’ series exposing the Color Revolution against Trump will focus on one quiet and indeed mostly overlooked participant in the Transition Integrity Project’s biased election “war games” exercise-a man by the name of Norm Eisen.

As the man who implemented the David Brock blueprint for suing the President into paralysis and his allies into bankruptcy, who helped mainstream and amplify the Russia Hoax, who drafted 10 articles of impeachment for the Democrats a full month before President Trump ever called the Ukraine President in 2018, who personally served as special counsel litigating the Ukraine impeachment, who created a template for Internet censorship of world leaders and a handbook for mass mobilizing racial justice protesters to overturn democratic election results, there is perhaps no man alive with a more decorated resume for plots against President Trump.

Indeed, the story of Norm Eisen — a key architect of nearly every attempt to delegitimize, impeach, censor, sue and remove the democratically elected 45th President of the United States — is a tale that winds through nearly every facet of the color revolution playbook. There is no purer embodiment of Revolver’s thesis that the very same regime change professionals who run Color Revolutions on behalf of the US Government in order to undermine or overthrow alleged “authoritarian” governments overseas, are running the very same playbook to overturn Trump’s 2016 victory and to pre-empt a repeat in 2020. To put it simply, what you see is not just the same Color Revolution playbook run against Trump, but the same people using it against Trump who have employed it in a professional capacity against targets overseas-same people same playbook.

In Norm Eisen’s case, the “same people same playbook” refrain takes an arrestingly literal turn when one realizes that Norm Eisen wrote a classic Color Revolution regime change manual, and conveniently titled it “The Playbook.”

Just what exactly is President Obama’s former White House Ethics Czar (yes, Norm Eisen was Obama’s ethics Czar), his longtime friend since Harvard Law School, who recently partook in war games to simulate overturning a Trump electoral victory, doing writing a detailed playbook on how to use a Color Revolution to overthrow governments? The story of Norm Eisen only gets more fascinating, outrageous, and indispensable to understanding the planned chaos unfolding before our eyes, leading up to what will perhaps be the most chaotic election in our nation’s recent history.

The CIA Has Never Worked for the American People

By Servando Gonzalez

In 1947, CFR secret agents infiltrated into the U.S. government pushed the creation of the National Security Act, which created the National Security Council and the Central Intelligence Agency, allegedly as a tool to manage the military, intelligence, and foreign policy areas of the U.S. government. But, soon after it was created, the CFR agents infiltrated in the National Security Council changed it into a tool to control the information reaching the eyes and ears of the Presidents, thus creating a smoke screen of disinformation around them.

Since the end of the Second World War, the CFR conspirators through their secret agents in the NSC have been putting blinders on American Presidents, feeding them disinformation and “suggesting” to them what decisions they should make. This guarantees that their most important policy decisions are the ones already made at the Harold Pratt House.

This curtain of disinformation surrounding the U.S. presidents explains why, even the ones who were not CFR members, have unknowingly advanced the goals of the CFR conspirators. Most, if not all, of the important decisions taken by American presidents about things they knew next to nothing, have already been taken at the Harold Pratt House in Manhattan, and later carefully implanted in the president’s brains…

The CIA proved to be exactly the right type of organization the globalist conspirators needed to help them accomplish their illicit purpose of conducting their pillage and plundering all around the world. In the first place, it was free, because the American taxpayers were paying for it. Secondly, thanks to the CIA’s operational principles of secrecy, compartmentalization and need-to-know inherent to all intelligence services, it was relatively easy to hide its real activities from both the American public and non— CFR-controlled CIA employees who ignored the Agency’s true goals.

CIA Director Allen Dulles himself recognized the fact when he wrote,

“An intelligence service is the ideal vehicle for a conspiracy. Its members can travel about at home and abroad under secret orders, and no questions are asked. Every scrap of paper in the files, its membership, its expenditure of funds, its contacts, even enemy contacts, are secret.”

But, despite their cleverness, the conspirators didn’t fool everybody. Former CIA Director Admiral Stanfield Turner (not a CFR member), for one, suspected that perhaps compartmentalization had some secret, non-proper uses. In a book he wrote about his experiences as CIA Director, he said:

“I found the system of compartmentation eminently sensible. I couldn’t help wondering, though, if it has been used deliberately to keep people from knowing what they properly needed to know.”

A Tale of Two Very Biased Reports in the European Parliament: The Lopez Agular Report on Poland and the Sargentini Report on Hungary

This article originally appeared on Kurier.plus and is reprinted here with the author’s permission:

The López Aguilar report on Poland was adopted by the European Parliament Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE) on July 16, 2020. The Sargentini report on Hungary was adopted by LIBE on June 25, 2018, and it then served as the basis of a motion adopted in plenary session on September 12 of the same year, although it remains to be decided by the European Court of Justice (ECJ) whether it was legal to exclude abstentions from the voting results in order to achieve the two-thirds majority required by the European treaties.

In both cases the reports constitute a necessary step in the Article 7 infringement procedure against those countries. It is on the basis of such a report that the European Parliament can pass a motion giving its approval for a case to be brought before the European Council. Thus, the reports on Poland and Hungary are the first of their kind in the history of the European Union, and they happen to have a lot in common, including their highly ideological content — with criticism covering fields outside the competence of European institutions (including the management of illegal immigration, but also “gay marriage” and abortion) — their tendency to question all of the main reforms introduced by the conservative governments of the two Central European countries, the very left-wing political profile of their authors, and the way public consultations in both countries were conducted, with right-wing, conservative and/or Christian organisations being almost entirely excluded from the process.

UK: So Much for ‘Green Jobs’: Wind Turbine Manufacturing Work Goes to Communist China

Another hole has been punched in the leftist promise of a so-called “green jobs revolution”, as wind turbine manufacturing jobs are sent to Communist-run China and the Middle East.

Local manufacturing firm BiFab, located just miles from the enormous Seagreen offshore wind project, has not been awarded any of the work on the expensive turbines for Scottish and Southern Energy (SSE), with 84 of 114 required being awarded to a Chinese yard and 30 to a firm based in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

“Trying to Break Us Down”: Mass Protests Hit Israel as 2nd Nationwide Lockdown Takes Effect

As Israel’s second nationwide mandatory lockdown went into effect on Friday, hundreds took the streets in Tel Aviv to protest what citizens complain is unnecessary government overreach which will only harm businesses while achieving little positive effect.

Israel’s Health ministry cited a recent spike in COVID-19 cases in making the argument last week that a new national lockdown is warranted; however, government ministers concerned about the devastating impact on small businesses as well as freedom of worship clashed with factions pushing the new lockdown.

Farm Company in Kuwait Uses 90% Less Water Than Average

High technology for company that produces fruit and vegetables

(ANSAmed) — NAPLES, SEPTEMBER 10 — An agri-tech company based in Abu Dhabi called Pure Harvest Smart Farms is planning to build a climate-controlled farm facility that uses 90% less water than a normal farm to produce fresh fruit and vegetables in Kuwait.

The harvest will supply The Sultan Centre, one of the country’s biggest independent supermarket operators, with supermarkets in Kuwait, Oman, Jordan, and Bahrain, the National reports.

The company will bring fruit and vegetables year-round to the supermarkets and will also have a visitor’s centre to demonstrate its advanced production techniques.

“The region’s long-standing dependence on imports paired with a growing demand for fresh produce highlight the importance of local farming,” said Khadija Oubala, chief executive at TSC.

“Pure Harvest can guarantee us fruit and vegetables all year with quality and variety, creating the way forward for the future,” he said.

This is one way to help ease the weight of fruit and vegetables on the trade budget of the Arabian Peninsula, which currently imports about 90% of the food it consumes.

The “smart” farm uses specialised software to constantly check temperature and humidity in the growing environment.

Last year, the Abu Dhabi government allocated 230 million euros to support the growth of high-tech farming companies.

Ghazwa-e-Hind: NIA Arrested 9 Jihadis Who Planned to Kill Top Hindus and Vital Installations in India

NIA busts Pak-sponsored al-Qaida module; 9 Jihadi terrorists arrested from West Bengal, Kerala.

Upendra Bharti | HENB | New Delhi | Sept 19, 2020:: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Saturday said it has busted a Pakistan-sponsored Al-Qaeda module planning to attack vital installations in India and being motivated to carry out terror strikes in multiple places including Delhi NCR. Nine Jihadi terrorists including the leader of the module were arrested early on Saturday morning in simultaneous raids at Murshidabad in West Bengal and Ernakulam in Kerala.

From sources, it is known that the Jihadi module was also preparing to attack top Hindu leaders; renowned Hindu, Buddhist and Sikh Temples; prominent Hindutva activists to mature ‘Ghazwa-e-Hind’ programme in India.

As per the preliminary investigation, the nine arrested accused were radicalised by Pakistan-based Al-Qaeda terrorists on social media and motivated to undertake attacks at multiple places including Delhi National Capital Region. For this purpose, the module — led by Murshidabad resident Abu Sufiyan, who is among the 9 arrested — was actively indulging in fundraising and a few members of the gang were planning to travel to New Delhi to procure arms and ammunition. The plans included travelling to Kashmir for delivering the weapons. Saturday’s arrests have pre-empted possible terrorist attacks in various parts of the country, said NIA.

The all nine arrested accused have been identified as — Murshid Hasan, Iyakub Biswas & Mosaraf Hossen, all three currently based in Ernakulam, Kerala; besides Najmus Sakib, Abu Sufiyan, Mainul Mondal, Leu Yean Ahmed, Al Mamun Kamal & Atitur Rehman, all residents of Murshidabad, West Bengal.

Incidentally, West Bengal and Kerala are rapidly divulging as ‘Jihadi Terrorists Hub’ as two Chief Ministers viz Mamata Banerjee (TMC) and Pinarayi Vijayan (CPIM) of the respective states are allowing Islamic upsurges under huge appeasement policies there aiming to Muslim vote bank. Banerjee and Vijayan are being infamous for allowing shelters of deadly Jihadis in their own states, knowingly or unknowingly, very unfortunately…

Governments Will Impose New Lockdowns if They Think They Can Get Away With it

This year’s stay-at-home orders and lockdowns imposed by governments on their populations represent a watershed moment in the history of the modern state.

Before March 2020, it is unlikely that many politicians — let alone many ordinary people — thought it would be feasible or likely for government officials to force hundreds of millions of human beings to “self-isolate.”

But it turns out governments were indeed able to force a sizable portion of the population to abandon jobs, religious practices, extended families, and community life in the name of “flattening the curve.”

Whether through fear manufactured by the news media or through outright threats of punishment, business owners shuttered their shops and offices, churches closed down, and schools abandoned their students.

Over time, most governments lessened their restrictions, largely out of fear that tax revenues would collapse and out of fear that the public would become unwilling to obey lockdown edicts indefinitely.

  1. The CIA article (News with Views) is interesting but the quote about Stalin and the Vatican’s military power was first cited by Time in Dec. 1943, long before Berlin was being encircled, and occurred at Tehran in November, 1943.

    As far as the Vatican “cynically” declaring war on Germany in 1945….it never happened.

  2. Brussels hubris: Ursula von der Leyen wants to shape the future for all Europeans
    By Klaus-Rüdiger Mai
    Sun, September 20, 2020

    The triad of corona crisis, climate crisis and migration crisis serves only the restructuring, the transformation of Europe into a central state, with the Brussels bureaucracy and no longer the citizens forming the sovereign.

    After Ursula von der Leyen left the Bundeswehr in a state of being in a state of disaster or defense, she and her advisors are now working tirelessly on Europe’s future, on a utopia that – stands to fear – how all aspired utopias in history will end in a dystopia. She presented the route sketch in a speech to the EU Parliament.

    The text of the Commission President leaves nothing to be desired in terms of clarity, it documents a lack of reality, a lack of historical knowledge and the unwavering will to enforce the supremacy of the financial sector, which will destroy the middle class.

    What von der Leyen intends to use to support the initial claim that pandemics have “changed the course of history” will probably remain her mystery and the fact-free fable of her advisors. Epidemics or pandemics do not change the course of history, but they reinforce and accelerate processes that are already taking place in societies.

    Neither the Athenian plague around 430 BC, nor the Antonine plague from 165-190 AD, not even the Black Death, which raged in Europe between 1346-1353, nor the smallpox epidemic in the New World that was brought in by the Spaniards widened in several waves from 1518 to a catastrophe for the native inhabitants of America, not even the English sweat, which appeared epidemically for the first time after the Battle of Bosworth in 1485 and then returned in waves in 1506, 1517 and in the years 1528/29, not even the Spanish flu from 1918 to 1920 “changed the course of history”.

    However, wrong political and economic measures gave development a disastrous twist. It is interesting, however, that earlier governments or the Roman emperors tried to master the economic consequences of the crisis with the printing press or the die. In the wake of the Spanish flu, the inflation caused by the First World War increased, which in 1923 was ultimately to grow into hyperinflation in Germany.

    But the Roman emperors tried to limit the economic crisis, which was accelerated by the Antonine plague, among other things by reducing the silver content in the coins. The attempt to stop inflation by introducing maximum prices, i.e. to regulate the market by the state, accelerated inflation and the crisis. So if you take a look at the history of epidemics and pandemics and the countermeasures taken by governments, you will come across the same measures and devastating consequences over and over again, right up to von der Leyen’s proposals.

    Ursula von der Leyen dares nothing new politically, she only repeats the mistakes that governments have already made before. Interventions in the market, in the economy, coupled with an increase in the amount of money or a reduction in the silver or gold content of coins, which amounts to the same thing, have always led to a deepening of the crisis and to inflation, which ultimately only the Finance took advantage – even in ancient Rome.

    But since facts and arguments have meanwhile been replaced by propaganda and attitudes in politics, one does not mind that by referring to history one is basically only deciding the flawedness and disastrousness of one’s own political plans, because the appeal to the History is supposed to demonstrate that you have learned from history what you don’t have right now – and if you do, then in a cynical way, then you would want the crisis. There are always two types of learning.

    Due to the government’s policy, we are experiencing a violent economic and financial crisis, which can only be achieved through tricks such as the suspension of the obligation to file for bankruptcy and excessive borrowing, and through the downsizing of certain media, operated by many media, through pure propaganda, framing or the waiver of certain To report facts and events is still cloaked. In view of the existential consequences of the pandemic for many people, to speak of an opportunity to “shape our future” is thoroughly cynical. In the face of human misery, one will probably speak of the “production costs of history”, which had to be raised in order to “re-shape” the future, as was the case in communism.

    Von der Leyen praises the “advantage of being a member of a union of 27 nations that can rely on each other when the going gets tough.” Only she doesn’t mention a single “advantage” in her cloudy text, nor does she provide an example, where the states have relied on each other. On the contrary, each member state of the EU was following its own path to contain the pandemic – and how good, the damage would have been far greater had it been a policy directed by Brussels. So the individual states acted according to their national characteristics. Indeed, the situation in Italy was very different from that in Poland. On the contrary, the pandemic in particular made it clear to everyone how important the nation-state is and how existentially important nation-state action is.

    But von der Leyen’s assertion is more than shaky to justify the large debt program that the EU Commission is launching, the immense debt, the great gift to the financial industry that is grandly called NextGenerationEU and instead of the future, it is more likely to be associated with Germany Next Top Model, give a certificate of consecration. Sure, religion cannot be questioned logically. But this is where politics and religion should differ.

    The fact that von der Leyen connects the home-made corona crisis with the no less home-made migration crisis and the climate apocalypse that has been faked shows the rough but successful tactic of the EU Commission, which is also used by the German government. By creating existential fears, by painting crises on the wall, one undermines the political discourse in which the discussion is raised to an irrational level, and empowers oneself to act that would have to be democratically legitimized, but not becomes, because “need knows no command”. The reorganization of the system, the great transformation, is justified by the depth of the crisis, which has been described or caused by oneself, because the Commission President is concerned with nothing less than: “To break out of this difficult time into a better future.”

    As if even one of these “awakenings” in the history of mankind actually led to a better future, as if they had not ended in suffering and hardship for most people. However, for the few, the March into the Brighter Future brought tremendous wealth in their present. It seems that the President of the Commission makes politics for these people.

    She also doesn’t seem to know anyone else, after all, culture for her arises “where bright minds meet and exchange ideas.” The fact that we live in a rich European culture and also in diverse regional and national cultures seems to be alien to the Commission President. that culture is not a Fridays for Future Happening, but a historically grown communication system, that culture both defines the way we live together, which values, which history, which art, which longings, which hopes and fears we share with one another Incidentally, from historical experience, which behavioral norms are fundamental for us, Ursula von der Leyen should be completely unknown.

    The endeavor of the Brussels EU to “create a new, European Bauhaus”, a platform on which architects, artists, students, engineers and designers work together and combine sustainability with their own aesthetic “, and through EU- Making funds and EU contracts binding will only produce a superstate style with which Brussels seeks to artificially create its own EU culture, its own superstate aesthetic, which is executed by willing EU cultural workers, destroying Europe’s cultural diversity.

    It almost seems that Ursula von der Leyen copied Orwell’s “1984” when she demands: “The European Green Deal is not only an environmental or economic project, but must also become a new cultural project for Europe.” “Smart” is according to von der Leyen, only those who take part in this project. It goes without saying that the EU Commission is responsible for approving “clever” cultural workers. But states do not produce cultures, especially not governments, where this is attempted, it amounts to patronizing the citizens. Culture will then develop as a counterculture. Wherever there is to be united, there is division.

    Here it becomes clear that the Green Deal is an ideological project to which the real economy and culture have to bow, to which Europe’s scientists have to sing panegyric and to implement it, activist journalists as a substitute for reality have a brave new world that can only be found in their gazettes and theirs Broadcasts exist that are sung about every day.

    The triad of corona crisis, climate crisis and migration crisis serves only the restructuring, the transformation of Europe into a central state, with the Brussels bureaucracy and no longer the citizens forming the sovereign. The latter is already under suspicion of racism, as is our entire culture, which is to be canceled so that there is room for von der Leyen’s “clever minds”.

    https://www.tichyseinblick.de/daili-es-sentials/ursula-von-der-leyen-will-die-zukunft-fuer-alle-europaeer-gestalten/

    • Quote from the above post: ‘Neither the Athenian plague around 430 BC, nor the Antonine plague from 165-190 AD, not even the Black Death, which raged in Europe between 1346-1353, nor the smallpox epidemic in the New World that was brought in by the Spaniards widened in several waves from 1518 to a catastrophe for the native inhabitants of America, not even the English sweat, which appeared epidemically for the first time after the Battle of Bosworth in 1485 and then returned in waves in 1506, 1517 and in the years 1528/29, not even the Spanish flu from 1918 to 1920 “changed the course of history”.’

      It does not help our side when highly disputable and likely wrong claims are made by an ally.

      Pandemics have indeed been a major influence on history.

      One example: The Plague of Athens dealt massive damage to Athens two years into the Peloponnesian War, from which it never recovered. Their political strength had weakened and morale among their armies as well as the citizens had fallen significantly. Athens would then go on to be defeated by Sparta and fall from being a major superpower in Ancient Greece.

      A second example: The impact of Black Death reduced the influence of the Catholic Church , and the culture became more secular. The new social mobility meant that individualism came to be respected. The plague had an important effect on the relationship between the lords who owned much of the land in Europe and the peasants who worked for the lords. As people died, it became harder and harder to find people to plow fields, harvest crops, and produce other goods and services. Peasants began to demand higher wages. The Black Death unleashed the forces in Italian society that made the Renaissance possible.

      It is a better and simpler line argument to say: COVID-19 is no Black Death, it is no Spanish Flu, governments went overboard in their response to it.

  3. SUPPORT FOR ISLAMIC STATE
    Turkey is deliberately liberating ISIS jihadists
    From Zara Riffler
    Sun, September 20, 2020

    Several hundred ISIS fighters were able to escape from a prison camp in northern Syria thanks to Turkish shelling.

    786 ISIS jihadists were able to escape from the Ain Issa camp in northern Syria through Turkish shelling in 2019. The camps in northern Syria with IS prisoners have been unstable for a long time. There were few guards before, and even fewer since Turkey’s military offensive in northeast Syria. As a result, Turkey destabilized its detention – with the knowledge that it was risking a re-strengthening of the terrorist organization. Since the US withdrew from Syria, the Syrian Kurds have been left to fend for themselves to arrest the captured IS terrorists. Camps like the one in al-Hol, where 70,000 people are housed under adverse conditions, are ticking time bombs. It was not until April 2020 that the mutiny took place in Hasakah prison, but control was restored.
    Turkey is liberating ISIS jihadists together with ISIS

    An action as part of the Turkish offensive in 2019 makes people particularly suspicious: In the town of Kamishli on the Turkish-Syrian border, grenades fell in the immediate vicinity of a prison on October 11 of last year, so that five IS fighters were able to flee, as t- reported online. The outbreak was also accompanied by an IS car bomb attack that killed three civilians. That same night, ISIS carried out a second car bomb attack in the city of Hasakah. According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, this second explosion targeted the central detention center where IS terrorists were held. Was it a coincidence that all of this happened in a single day? Have the military action of Turkey and the terrorist attacks of the IS been discussed? Was this a joint attempt to free IS terrorists? How much do IS and Turkey work together?
    Organized breakouts and attempted breakouts

    The probability for this thesis is high. A report by the Kurdish news agency ANF-News shows Turkey’s targeted support in the outbreak of IS terrorists. Opposite ANF News one escaped from a northern Syrian camp IS Dschihadistin says over the network of the Turkish public service. This is the Turkish citizen Elif Sancar, who was caught while hiding in a water tanker. In a conversation with ANF, Sancar explained the structures of the “liberation attempts”. The “liberation” of women jihadists is organized and financed by the Turkish secret service MIT through the notorious “Foundation for Humanitarian Aid” (IHH).

    The IHH, which is considered an organization of the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood (MB) and which is said to have links to Al-Qaida and Hamas, acts as a transit instrument for Turkey and a partner in the joint liberation of terrorists. Sancar reported, so ANF-Newsthat many women had reached Turkey through IHH and that a safe transfer would be possible for a payment of 15,000 dollars by the families with the help of MIT, the Islamic State (IS) and the Syrian National Army (SNA). Sancar reports that her brother said on the phone that Turkey would get her out of al-Hol, “Turkey pays for the way and money through IHH”. Other ISIS jihadists who were able to flee to Turkey also stated that they had received the money from Turkey for the escape from camps. The majority of IS women fled this way.

    Sancar reported that passport photos were required for “registration”. One can assume that liberated ISIS jihadists will receive a new name and a new identity – possibly directly from Turkey. So they could possibly travel back to Europe unnoticed. When asked why Sancar was taken out of the camp by the Turkish state, ANF replied : “Because Turkey wants us”. Another IS jihadist who was caught and who had fled said to ANF : “Some of the women who fled through IHH stayed in Turkey, others returned to their countries”.

    IS women are needed strategically

    Most likely there is both an ideology and a strategy behind it, especially to save IS women. It can be assumed, however, that Turkey, in alliance with the Islamic State, is not only liberating or attempting to liberate women. Today women jihadists play a crucial role in recruiting women – they often lure them personally to the caliphate. An IS woman no longer functions only as a bearer, educator and supporter of husbands. IS women are actively involved in the terror group. On the one hand, there are women’s battalions of their own. But most of all the propaganda work that is extremely important for the terrorist organization is done by women.

    Turkey: transit and production country for IS terrorists

    As early as 2014, the Turkish secret service MIT is said to have deliberately refused to cooperate with European secret services when it came to the so-called travel route control measures. MIT should have notified European countries if an Islamist crossed the Turkish border into a neighboring country. The allegation was that this had not happened from MIT for months. In April last year, DER SPIEGEL published a report that clearly identified Turkey as a transit country for IS jihadists. 100 passports of IS members from 21 countries were issued by SPIEGELevaluated: All 100 had one or more Turkish entry stamps without an exit stamp. It is impossible that the Turkish authorities never became aware of the rapidly increasing influx of young men from Arab states or Tunisia. Turkey must have consciously allowed this.

    It fits into the pattern: In 2014, Turkey delivered crude oil, gasoline, off-road vehicles, satellite communications, drones, and fertilizers for bomb explosives to the areas on the Turkish border conquered by IS. Photos have also shown that the Turkish secret service delivered weapons to ISIS. The most wanted terrorist, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, was also able to hide unhindered in the northern Syrian region of Idlib – which is under the influence of Ankara. It is generally believed that the Turkish border area is an organized shelter for high-ranking IS terrorists.

    Turkey is therefore deliberately putting Europe at risk from a security policy point of view. Liberated ISIS jihadists can escape to Europe unhindered and unnoticed and pursue terrorist activities from there. Erdogan also allows the wave of refugees to be maintained and intensified in the region when the Islamic State regains its strength there – and it is already doing so: the conflicts in the region and Corona have made IS stronger. This spring, attacks, suicide bombers and detonated booby traps increased in Iraq – actions that IS again carried out in several groups and in more complex operations.

    • In the western EU and especially the ex UK Muslims don’t have to escape. They can pursue or wait for their faith calling protected by a bottomless pit of cash and services. Even have their own exclusive social structures independent of the state. Just shows you the rewards that can be had in the new wild western EU. A very confident cult indeed. And not without reason by the looks of things. To be honest though I don’t actually feel the curly toed boot on my neck yet. Hopefully their magic carpet will be pulled before too long.

  4. There weren’t ‘hundreds’ at the protest in London, there were THOUSANDS! I believe it was about 20,000 there, judging by the pictures I’ve seen. Pictures taken by people who attended.

  5. “ Nike’s new Colin Kaepernick jersey, commemorating four years since Kaepernick first took a knee during the national anthem before an NFL game, sold out in less than a minute.”

    Everyone has been terrified of running out of toilet paper, it’s a sensible move to buy a back up.

  6. Minuscule Ursula von der Leyen. Can’t stop talking. There are those who see only opportunity while chics in charge of what’s left of the western EU man’s world clean house.

  7. Surely the model can’t be some kind of Islam and African colonial minority tribal rule. You know, where the minorities end up getting wiped out by the majority. Look to the history of Africa. Western EU and UK well be well and truly banjaxed. This sounds like an occupation to be fought.
