Activist Created Bogus BLM Charity, Used Money to Buy New Home, Guns: FBI

The founder of a bogus Black Lives Matter was nabbed in Ohio after he used $200,000 given to the organization for a new home, suits and guns, federal authorities said.

Sir Maejor Page, 32, previously known as Tyree Conyers-Page, was arrested Friday following a raid at a Toledo, Ohio, home, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Federal agents said Page ran social media pages for an organization known as Black Lives Matter of Greater Atlanta, though its status as a nonprofit was revoked last year after the required paperwork wasn’t filed.

America: Why Do You Enrich Our Enemies?

The world wide web was truly a wonderful, remarkable ‘thing’ to happen for the world. Sadly, over the decades it’s become a cesspool of filth from kiddie porn to promoting every form of sexual deviancy known to mankind. The ‘dark web’ is most certainly the domain of Satan where child and sex trafficking contacts come together. Snuff films. Hire an assassin. The worst on this planet is found there.

Most certainly, there are many wonderful ways which the Internet educates people, wonderful free on-line tours of places like the great museums and libraries of the world, live streaming of events and networks like Hulu and others. (I canceled my Netflix subscription when they announced a big bux ‘partnership’ with the Obama’s.)

Slowly however, those who control the big monopolies have been using their technology against the American people. For years and years, the ‘Gods of the Universe’ aka tech giants have been on a non-stop crusade to censor web sites whose content is conservative or constitutionally focused. The independent media is a real threat to them and their agenda.

Google, Facebook, Twitter control 93% of advertising now. They’ve killed off more conservative web sites in the past five years than I can count. Massive monopolies who support the destruction of our constitutional republic. Wired Lays Out the Case to Regulate Google’s Ad Market

You Tube, owned by Google, is the quintessential example of censorship forced by the scum of the earth, the Chinese Communist Party over in China. Stop posting to You Tube and start using alternatives that don’t censor free speech.

Brighteon.com is growing at a sizeable pace.

Microsoft, which catapulted the despicable Bill Gates into the highest echelon of billionaires, is the primary source of programs used in school classrooms across this country as well as the private sector. A massive monopoly that crushes any competition.

Those tech-giants and their CEOs demand cheap labor from foreigners while Americans with college degrees in technology work at McDonald’s or starve. Big Tech: America’s Success ‘Depends’ on Corporations Importing Foreign H-1B Visa Workers

The prostitute media (MSM) has always worked full time to convince the American people there is a shortage of American workers for the tech industry. A fat lie. The Myth of America’s Tech-Talent Shortage

Antifa Doxer ‘Antifash Gordon’ Sued in Federal Lawsuit for Harassment

A federal lawsuit accuses St. Lawrence University of allowing an employee and notorious Antifa doxer to use campus facilities and equipment to lead harassment and threatening campaigns against an ex-New York Daily News employee.

The lawsuit filed last week in New Jersey federal court claims that Christian Michael Exoo, a 39-year-old supervisor at the university library in Canton, N.Y. who runs the notorious Antifa Twitter account “@AntiFashGordon,” harassed the plaintiff, Daniel D’Ambly, causing him to be fired from his job as a platemaker for the paper.

“Exoo is a self-described anti-fascist, notorious doxer, and leader of Antifa, who by doxing others has acquired a great deal of notoriety and infamy,” D’Ambly’s civil complaint claims. “Exoo’s activities are well known to St. Lawrence faculty and administrators, who allow Exoo to direct the enterprise from St. Lawrence property, from his place of employment, during his normal work hours using St. Lawrence equipment and information technology.”

Biden’s Texas Political Director Implicated in Massive Mail-in Ballot Harvesting Scheme in Harris County

A Biden Campaign operative in Texas is attempting to rig the 2020 election with the help of others in a massive ballot harvesting scheme, according to two private investigators who testified under oath that they have “video evidence, documentation and witnesses” to prove it. With the help of mass mail-in ballots, the illegal ballot harvesting operation could harvest 700,000 ballots, one Harris County Democrat operative allegedly bragged.

The investigators—a former FBI agent and former police officer—claim that Biden’s Texas Political Director Dallas Jones and his cohorts have been “hoarding mail-in and absentee ballots” and ordering operatives to them fill out for people in Harris County illegally, “including dead people, homeless people, and nursing home residents in the 2020 presidential election,” Patrick Howley of the National File reported.

Detroit Violent Crime Led Nation in 2019 Despite Drop, FBI Report Says

Domestic Violence Cases on the Rise Since COVID-19 Pandemic Began

PHOENIX — The spike in domestic violence incidents is a concern for advocates who are reminding people that while there are mandates in place during this pandemic, shelters for help are still open.

“Depends on who is counting … either way, you are seeing an increase over time, but not a spike like this,” said Jenna Panas, CEO of the Arizona Coalition to End Sexual and Domestic Violence.

A spike in domestic violence calls has advocates pointing the finger at COVID-19.

Statewide, there is a 16% increase in domestic violence calls from last year, according to Panas.

FBI Partners With Social Media Platforms to Target “Misinformation”

Last we heard of the FBI in the context of its (acute) interest in content shared on social media platforms has been the agency’s effort to impose more mass surveillance via private sector developed tools.

But now, the FBI is emerging as a partner to those same social media giants, as they fight their largely self-styled and self-imposed battle (in response to relentless pressure and scrutiny from certain political and media centers) against what is presented as the ultimate scourge of “misinformation.”

Feds Announce Indictments for 16 People on Gun Violence Charges

CINCINNATI — A federal grand jury has indicted 15 Cincinnati men and one Chicago man on charges related to gun violence in Cincinnati.

U.S. Attorney David Devillers said as part of an effort to curb violence in the region, he’s pulled federal agents off of corruption and white collar crime cases, moving them instead to weapons-related cases typically handled by city and county courts.

The announcement comes as the city is on track to have one of its deadliest years in recent history. At least 67 people have been shot and killed in Cincinnati so far this year, according to Cincinnati police data.

Former New Mexico Democratic Governor Bill Richardson is Accused of Raking in Hundreds of Thousands in Bribes and Kickbacks to Fund Debauched Lifestyle Including ‘Sexual Services and Favors’

The scandal plagued former governor of New Mexico — who Virginia Roberts claimed she had underage sex with on Jeffrey Epstein’s orders — has been dragged into the mud once again.

Career politician Bill Richardson has been accused of raking in hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes and kickbacks while in office — money which allegedly funded a luxury and debauched lifestyle including ‘sexual services and favors’, according to a recently unsealed legal complaint obtained by DailyMail.com.

According to the lawsuit, Richardson ran a scam dubbed the ‘Richardson Ring’ which saw the one-time governor benefiting from money he grafted from business investments into the state of New Mexico in the early 2000s.

Judge Blocks Trump Ban on TikTok Downloads

A judge has temporarily blocked an order from the Trump administration that would ban Americans from downloading TikTok.

Nichols’s order does not block a larger ban set to come on November 12, which would make TikTok unusable in the U.S.

Lawyer: Officer Who Shot Jacob Blake Believed He Was Attempting to Kidnap a Child

The Kenosha police officer who shot Jacob Blake last month allegedly told investigators that he believed Blake was armed and about to kidnap a child.

Brendan Matthews, the lawyer for both Officer Rusten Sheskey and the Kenosha police union, said that Sheskey had watched Blake put a child in an SUV as he arrived on scene. Skeskey also heard a woman say, “He’s got my kid, he’s got my keys,” but was unaware of the other two children in the car.

Sheskey and two other officers attempted to restrain Blake, who also had an open warrant for felony sexual assault. They Tased him twice but failed to immobilize him. Video of the incident shows Blake raising a knife and ignoring the officers’ commands to drop the weapon as he made his way around the vehicle toward the driver’s side door.

Lenin on the Verge of Conquering America

When Vladimir Ilyich Lenin returned home from Switzerland to Czarist Russia, the transformation of society had already begun. Whether it began spontaneously or at the behest of a vast Western monetary background, should make no difference a century later. But the seemingly very strange events of our days warn us that we shouldn’t leisurely flip past these pages of history.

Lenin’s actions culminated in the Great October Revolution of 1917 in Russia, and led down the bumpy road that sought to build communism. His death in 1924 did not end the process he set in motion. The Soviet Union was established only to be followed by other nations in the aftermath of the peace talks and agreements that ended World War II.

As a result of a bargain between the major powers, the countries of Central and Eastern Europe were forced to rebuild their destroyed world following the path of Lenin.

In the 1990s, the Soviet Union collapsed, and Russia returned to its traditional religious and cultural identity customary of the Czarist era. Although its social system is different, its awakening from the coma of socialism has happened very quickly and follows the patterns of its Czarist roots, still deeply ingrained in popular sentiment and even politics.

In the time that has passed since the Russian Socialist Revolution of the 19th century, there was a growing amount of evidence that the upheaval was not the will of the people, as quite a few generations have been taught, but was invented, financed and carried out by conspirators who planned the future along their own interests and supported by their trained soldiers.

Louisville Police Major to Retire After Online Backlash for Calling Rioters “Punks”

A police major in the US state of Kentucky has paid the ultimate professional price to online outrage that spilled over into the real world, because of her attitude toward rioters, expressed in an internal email.

Major Bridget Hallahan has been revealed of her command and will be forced to retire on October 1.

The “incriminating” email sent in August to officers shows Hallahan attempting to put across the message that the police, essentially, should not “feed the trolls.” Her argument was not to stoop to the level of those wholesale vilifying the police, and avoid responding or reacting to those accusations publicly, to avoid validating them.

Manufactured Pandemic: Testing People for Any Strain of a Coronavirus, Not Specifically for COVID-19

I work in the healthcare field. Here’s the problem, we are testing people for any strain of a Coronavirus. Not specifically for COVID-19. There are no reliable tests for a specific COVID-19 virus. There are no reliable agencies or media outlets for reporting numbers of actual COVID-19 virus cases. This needs to be addressed first and foremost. Every action and reaction to COVID-19 is based on totally flawed data and we simply can not make accurate assessments.

This is why you’re hearing that most people with COVID-19 are showing nothing more than cold/flu like symptoms. That’s because most Coronavirus strains are nothing more than cold/flu like symptoms. The few actual novel Coronavirus cases do have some worse respiratory responses, but still have a very promising recovery rate, especially for those without prior issues.

The ‘gold standard’ in testing for COVID-19 is laboratory isolated/purified coronavirus particles free from any contaminants and particles that look like viruses but are not, that have been proven to be the cause of the syndrome known as COVID-19 and obtained by using proper viral isolation methods and controls (not the PCR that is currently being used or Serology /antibody tests which do not detect virus as such). PCR basically takes a sample of your cells and amplifies any DNA to look for ‘viral sequences’, i.e. bits of non-human DNA that seem to match parts of a known viral genome.

The problem is the test is known not to work.

Minneapolis Police Investigating Alleged Ballot Harvesting Scheme by Omar Associates

The Minneapolis Police Department is investigating claims by right-wing activist group Project Veritas that individuals tied to Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., engaged in illegal ballot harvesting before the election.

“We are in the process of looking into the validity of those statements,” a department statement read on Monday. “No further information is available at this time on this.”

Project Veritas’ latest video lit up social media as it came just weeks before a presidential election that is expected to see a surge in absentee or mail-in voting. In Minnesota, the issue has come under judicial scrutiny as Republicans and Democrats battled over a measure that would limit the number of ballots a third party could hold for others.

Senate Democrats Consider Plan to Boycott Amy Coney Barrett Hearings

As a growing number of Democratic senators announce they will not meet with Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett, there is increasing talk that Democrats may be considering a plan to boycott the upcoming Senate confirmation hearings on her appointment.

Democratic Sens. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut and Mazie Hirono of Hawaii have both signaled their refusal to meet with Barrett.

The Coming Break Up of America, Part 1

Have you noticed more flags being flown from other countries instead of Old Glory? Did you know that more Mexican flags fly from houses, cars and establishments in California more than the Stars and Stripes? Have you noticed what has happened to the Golden State? Texas? Arizona? How about Georgia or Miami, Florida?

How about the outright defiance of our laws by our own citizens? BLM and Antifa continue their anarchy because we fail to stop them.

Have you ever been incredulous about hearing something that sounded so preposterous that it “couldn’t be true?” Take a second look.

You are watching the “Coming Breakup of America.” That’s right. Your country. It is moving methodically, perversely, steadily and provocatively across our land. Our Congress, governors and mayors of major cities like New York, Minneapolis, Seattle, Portland, Detroit and Chicago aid it at the highest levels. It is a nation-destroying experiment being forced on Americans that will prove more disastrous than 9/11.

Years ago, I read a book, Civil War II: The Coming Breakup of America by Thomas W. Chittum. This book paints a grim picture of what is happening to our country. At first, I was incredulous at his supposition. But halfway through the book, his research was SO profound and SO evident that it became a page-turner. It provided a sickening look into the methodology and process whereby my own country is being destroyed before my eyes.

Video: Biden Says Trump is “Sort of Like” Nazi Propagandist Joseph Goebbels

Democratic candidate Joe Biden sparked fury at the weekend by directly comparing President Trump to the chief Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels.

Biden made the comment after host Stephanie Ruhle said that “One of the things he says over and over is that you will push a socialist agenda.”

Woman Plows Car Into Trump Supporters; NY Times Omits Key Detail

The New York Times and NPR covered the same story on Sunday when a liberal activist was caught on video plowing a car through a group of Trump supporters, but the liberal newspaper omitted a key detail that NPR and other outlets managed to divulge.

Tatiana Turner was charged with attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon after she allegedly tried to plow through a group of pro-Trump demonstrators.

“A prolonged confrontation between Black Lives Matter and pro-Trump demonstrators outside Los Angeles turned violent Saturday, as someone drove a car through the pro-Trump group. The driver has been charged with attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon,” NPR’s Matthews Schwartz wrote.

1400 Belgian Doctors and Healthcare Professionals Sound the Alarm: “There is No Such Thing as a Killer Virus”

The following letter has made an impact on public health authorities not only in Belgium but around the world. The text could pertain to any case in which states locked down their citizens rather than allow people freedom and permit medical professionals to bear the primary job of disease mitigation.

So far it has been signed by 394 medical doctors, 1,340 medically trained health professionals, and 8,897 citizens.

In an open letter, more than 300 Belgian doctors and 1,100 healthcare professionals call on their government to immediately stop the corona measures. These are disproportionate and cause more harm than good, “There is no longer any medical justification for this policy”.

The electoral alliance formed in 2019 also won in Timisoara, Brasov, Alba Iulia, Bacau and Cmpulung Muscel. The Social Democrats only managed to hold on to the mayor positions in two of Bucharest’s administrative districts.

France: Charlie Hebdo: Police Investigate ‘Manifesto’ In ‘Islamist Terrorism’ Attack

PARIS (AFP) — French investigators were Sunday studying a video claiming responsibility for the meat cleaver attack in Paris that targeted satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo as the government condemned an act of “Islamist terrorism”.

Six people were still under arrest, including the suspected perpetrator of Friday’s attack that left two badly wounded outside Charlie Hebdo‘s former offices in Paris.

The man is an 18-year old born in Pakistan named as Hassan A, according to a source close to the investigation.

He told investigators he had carried out the attack to avenge the republication of cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed by Charlie Hebdo, which was the target of a January 2015 massacre by Islamist gunmen.

The investigators were now seeking to authenticate a video which they believe could show Hassan A. announcing he was about to carry out the attack.

Scotland: Glasgow Police Officer Faces Investigation After Anti-Lockdown Instagram Post

A Scotland-based police officer could be in hot water for her outspoken criticism on social media of the way her country’s government has been handling the ongoing coronavirus crisis.

Nevertheless, however scathing it may be, Glasgow police constable (PC) Chelsea Renton’s Instagram post that triggered an investigation does not appear to be crossing any apparent lines regarding what’s allowed or prohibited to say in a democracy.

Her Instagram post sums up the frustration of the last six months of coronavirus pandemic in the UK and around the world as viewed by those with grievances and criticism of the manner the crisis has been handled.

For one thing, Renton called the UK government “an absolute joke” when it comes to the way they responded to the epidemic by imposing lockdowns, which, according to her, have by now proven not to work (since the country is bracing for a much-advertised “second wave.”

Students at Manchester Metropolitan University were threatened with police action if they didn’t remove signs complaining about draconian lockdown restrictions that were placed in windows at their halls of residence.

Students across the city have been placed under a new 2 week lockdown, meaning they are under de facto house arrest, cannot leave their homes and are forced to rely on food deliveries.

Some reacted to the restrictions by placing signs in their windows that said, ““Help us!” and “HMP MMU,” a reference to Her Majesty’s Prison.

“Mental health comes first — let us out,” another sign said.

In response to the signs, the university said it had been contacted by police, who would remove the signs if they were deemed to be in violation of the law.

UK’s NHS COVID App Falsely Tells People to Self-Isolate Because it Won’t Accept Negative Results

When it comes to the public health situation and the healthcare system in the UK, two things don’t seem to be showing any sign of going away: one is coronavirus drama, and the other the “meme-worthy” trouble that the National Health Service (NHS) is having in developing, marketing, rationalizing, and now deploying its Test and Trace app.

The software has been envisaged to provide contact tracing as a means to curb the spread of the virus — meaning that anyone who had been in contact with a person testing positive would be warned about it via the app — but how can that be of any use if those willing to install it and give their personal data regarding their coronavirus status aren’t even able to submit that data?

And then, there are reports from users that the app is explicitly rejecting input from those who have tested negative.

Armenians, Syrians, Greeks the Most ‘Hated’ in the Turkish Media

by Marian Demir

The results of the report on “hate speech in the media” by the Hrant Dink Foundation. In national and local newspapers, every day at least 17 “hateful” articles against minorities, despising religious and ethnic identity.

Istanbul (AsiaNews) — Armenians, Syrians and Greeks are the groups that most attracted “hate speech” in the Turkish media last year, according to a report on “Hate speech in the media”. The investigation was prepared and published by the Hrant Dink Foundation.

Hrant Dink, editor of the newspaper “Agos”, was shot dead on January 19, 2007 by a young man aged 18-19 years of age. His life long committment was to making Turkey a country that respected minorities.

Building on this legacy the Foundation publishes a report on “hate speech” in his name every year. The report published this week studied the articles published in all national newspapers and about 500 local newspapers in the past year.

In 2019, the newspapers publishing most articles that contained “hate speech” include “Yeniçag”, “Yeni Akit” and “Dirilis Postasi”. The report states that last year, at least 17 articles were produced every day that fomented hatred against the religious and national identity of some 80 ethnic groups, reinforcing the negative judgment on these ethnic groups.

Turkey Sends 4,000 Syrian ISIS Mercenaries to Fight Against the Armenians (Video)

by Pierre Balanian

The news is confirmed by AsiaNews sources and by the Observatory for Human Rights in Syria. Ankara hired them for $ 1800 a month for three months. “It is a holy war of Muslims against Christians”. Armenian Premier Nikol Pashinian: If the war in the Caucasus does not stop soon, it will destabilize world peace

Idlib (AsiaNews) — Syrian armed opposition sources contacted by AsiaNews, say that Turkey has sent 4,000 Syrian Isis mercenaries from Afrin to fight against the Armenians of Nagorno Karabakh. A few days ago land convoys reached Turkey and then Azerbaijan by air. The salary is 1,800 US dollars a month, for a duration of three months.

A leader of the Syrian terrorist group said: “Thanks to Allah, from September 27 until the end of the month another 1000 Syrian mercenaries will be transferred to Azerbaijan”. AsiaNews sources also provided an audio recording of the operational nucleus of the Sultan Murat Brigade (an armed faction of the Syrian opposition, which enlists mercenaries to be sent to Libya as well) in which we hear: “Syrian volunteers are destined to be sent to front line on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border… and they will fight with the Azeris, that is, with the Shiites”.

In a talk show on the Syrian opposition broadcaster “Orient”, which broadcasts from the Emirates, there was discussion about the deployment of Syrian mercenaries to Azerbaijan: they go to fight a war against “Crusader Christians” just as men are needed to fight Assad in Idlib, turning Syrian anti-Assad fighters into a source of transnational mercenaries enlisted by Turkey.

Among the guests of the talk show, there was the colonel of the Free Syrian Army, Aunt Hajj Obeid, a resident of Turkey, who denied that they were sending any Syrian “volunteers” to Azerbaijan. Colonel Zia was immediately interrupted by the presenter, who reminded him that initially they had also denied that Syrian mercenaries were being sent to Libya. Instead, after some were captured, it was no longer possible to deny. To date — he said — “we know that there are 35,000 pro-Turkish Syrian mercenaries in Libya”.

The news of the sending of ISIS mercenaries to Azerbaijan is also denied by the spokesman for the armed opposition factions in Astana, Ayman Al Assemi, contacted by AsiaNews. Another source from Afrin, an opposition fighter from Jind al-Sham confirmed to AsiaNews that he had spoken with an Azerbaijani colleague fighting in Syria, and asked him why we are going to fight in Azerbaijan, alongside the Shiites, against the Karabakh. The latter replied: “Because it is part of the Jihad; it is a holy war of Muslims against Christians “.

But in a video, one of the wounded terrorists advises his colleagues “not to go and fight in Azerbaijan!” (see video below). In another video, posted on twitter, trucks with militants are seen shouting “Allah akhbar!” (see here). Armenian sources say at least 89 Islamist mercenaries have been killed so far.

The news of the dispatch of 4 thousand Syrian mercenaries by Turkey was also confirmed yesterday by the Human Rights Observatory in Syria, based in London, of clear anti-Assad inspiration.

The president of the Republic of Karabakh, Arayik Arutyunian also spoke of 4 thousand fundamentalist mercenaries who had arrived from Syria and other countries in recent days. “This is not a war between Karabakh and Azerbaijan, or Armenia against Azerbaijan. It is a direct war by Turkey, by mercenaries alongside 10 million Azeris, against 3 million Armenians”.

A “confessional” war

“It is a war for survival — continued Arutyiunian — a war in which we can lose; but we cannot afford this luxury. Every defeat for us means the end of our nation. This is our homeland, we have no other, and we will win because we fight for our existence. The Azeris and Turkey are fighting for expansionism and anti-Armenian racial hatred”.

The Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry, despite images and videos disseminated on social media by armed fundamentalist groups — denied that there are Syrian mercenaries in Azerbaijan.

Yesterday, Pakistan also claimed to be alongside Azerbaijan against Armenia and Karabakh. The conflict is spreading dangerously.

Armenia believes that what is happening today is due to the weak reaction of the international community to the aggressions of 2016, when in the so-called “4-day war”, Azerbaijan, supported by Turkey, welcomed ISIS fighters who perpetrated horrors against the helpless Armenian civilians.

Turkey participates directly, not only with official statements, but also militarily support alongside Azerbaijan: Turkish military jets fly over the skies and bomb towns.

Bayrakdar attack drones are remotely guided by Turkish military experts in Azerbaijan.

The Premier of Armenia Nikol Pashinian warned that if the war in the Caucasus risks destabilizing not only the region, but world peace.

At present there are at least 100 Armenian civilian victims in Karabakh, as well as the destruction of homes, schools, hospitals, bridges and roads (photos 2 and 3). The Azeris claim to have occupied six Armenian posts and villages again.

According to AsiaNews sources, the notorious Syrian terrorist Abu Amsha (a native of the Sunni tribes of Hamah, photo 4), commander of the Suleiman Shah brigade, who became famous in the battles in Libya, also arrived in Azerbaijan. His men are defined as “the worst mercenary killers”, also characterized by an extreme hatred towards “infidels” Christians.

Greek Police Dismantle Human Trafficking Network in Lesvos Operated by German NGO’s and Others

Greek police have dismantled an organized human trafficking network in Lesvos, in which a total of four Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) are involved. A case has already been filed against 33 NGO members — including Germans, Swiss, French, Bulgarians, Spaniards, Austrians and Norwegians.

According to the police, the organization started its activity last June and it is estimated that in 32 trips to transfer illegal immigrants to Greece, more than 3,000 people entered the country.

The network used closed groups on Facebook and messaging apps to share information about where the boats would leave and arrive, providing a lot of information.

What the police are looking for now is the end of these networks.

Immigration is a Crime Against the European Peoples and Will End in Bloodshed, Says French Philosopher Eric Zemmour

Mass migration to Europe constitutes amounts to population replacement and will end in bloodshed, warned French philosopher and essayist Éric Zemmour while speaking on French news channel CNews.

“Immigration changes the makeup of a people. It is a crime against the European peoples, it will end in bloodshed,” Zemmour said.

He believes that opposed to what European Union leaders say — including Commission President Ursula von der Leyen — the solution to the continent’s migration crisis can only come from the national level.

“I think quite oppositely. The solution is only national, quite simply for one reason. What is immigration? It is an influence on the composition of a population and therefore the composition of a people, which makes it a fundamentally national decision,” Zemmour said. “It is up to the nation who it wants to take in, who it wants to have among them and who it doesn’t want in its midst.”

Paris Knife Attack by Pakistani ‘Unaccompanied Minor’ Outside Charlie Hebdo Office is ‘Clearly an Act of Islamist Terrorism’

A man identified as an 18-year-old Pakistani attacked and severely wounded two passers-by with a meat cleaver in what he believed were the offices of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo on Friday, and authorities are treating the case as an Islamist terrorist attack.

French Minister of Interior Gérald Darmain said the was “clearly an act if Islamist terrorism”, adding that it was “a new bloody attack against our country, against journalists”.

The attack happened outside the former offices of Charlie Hebdo, where in 2015 two Jihadists killed 12 people. The high-profile trial of 14 people accused of helping them is currently underway.

The latest attack occurred just days after Charlie Hebdo magazine reprinted the cartoon of the Prophet Muhammad which prompted the first terrorist attack in 2015. The magazine went ahead with the decision to reprint the cartoon in an effort to show it will not be silenced by Islamist extremists.

In Brussels, Orban and the leaders of the other Vesigrad countries met von der Leyen to discuss the previously mentioned migration pact, referring to which Orban said that Hungary — while a tolerant society — was against having a mixed population.

“Migration in Hungary is a national security issue,” Orban said. “In Hungary, we are very strict that we would not like to have a parallel society, or open society or a mixed-up culture. We don’t think a mixture of Muslim and Christian society could be a peaceful one and could provide security and good life for the people.”

“Today the Church celebrates the World Day of Migrants and Refugees,” the pope told the pilgrims gathered in Saint Peter’s Square for his weekly Angelus address. “I greet the refugees and migrants present in the Square around the monument entitled ‘Angels, unawares,’ which I blessed last year.”

‘We Wish We Stayed in France’: Sudanese Illegal Migrants Complain About Conditions in UK Camp

A group of illegal migrants have spoken publicly to complain about the conditions in the recently opened migrant camp in Folkestone, Kent, claiming that the supposedly poor conditions make them regret illegally travelling to the UK from France.

The record numbers of illegal aliens pouring across the English Channel from France forced the Home Office this month to commandeer a former military barracks in Kent to house the migrants, while they apply for asylum.

California Will Now House Prisoners According to Gender Identity Instead of Biological Sex

California Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a bill that directs the state’s Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation to begin incarcerating inmates on the basis of their professed gender identity rather than biological sex.

The new law will require law enforcement officers to privately inquire of incoming prisoners whether they identify as transgender, nonbinary, or intersex prior to assigning them a facility. Even if officers have security concerns, any denial of their preferred housing must include a written explanation and be subject to appeal.

The young Catholics were praying, conducting an information campaign and were handing out leaflets, with the members of the Catholic group explaining that their volunteers were fighting “in defense of family and public morality”.

Although the volunteers were peacefully operating in various locations in Warsaw, they were harassed by LGBT activists in the city’s center.

  1. Interesting that they’re ballot harvesting in Minnesota. To me, that indicates that they could see Trump winning the state. Which is quite possible, looking at 2016.

    • I am not so optimistic on Trump winning Minnesota-Stan; there is long precedent after all, and the stupid is pretty strongly entrenched there what with all the Lutherans and Scandinavians.

      I got the sense from the ballot harvesting story that it wasn’t so much about Trump as about Ilhan’s own reelection and local Somali politicians trying to buy elections. Thank Allah for diversity that we have such ethnically concocted schemes to culturally enrich our lives and elections…

  2. “Pope Francis: Migrants Are Forced to Flee ‘Like Jesus’”
    Jesus never used and abused those who helped him. It’s terrible that the head of the Catholic Church doesn’t know the baseline of their religion!

    • JESUS WAS NOT A REFUGEE. The liberals are pushing that lie. Poope Frank know nothing about the Bible. He just wants to be fashionable. He also had the nerve to say that Jesus failed his mission. There is more but truly this guy is an anti-Christ.

  3. “Germany: Iraqi Migrants ‘Hunted’ For Girls at Berlin Techno Clubs and Raped Them in Their SUV” this is like Great Britain 10-15 years ago, it’s clearly a pattern.

    • I think the polls are pretty much bogus. People have learned what happens to anyone who publicly admits to being a Trump supporter, so why would they tell a pollster the truth?

      Nevertheless, I think the polls probably accurately reflect the result of the election. Just think what happens when they start counting all those mail-in ballots that the Democrats are so busily harvesting.

      • Thankfully Trump is a fighter and he is unlikely to just roll over if they keep pulling boxes of mail-in ballots magically all for Sleepy Joe out of their fourth point-of-contact weeks after the election.

        I can see him tying such fraudulent schemes up in court for so long that he will have several years of his next term completed before it is all sorted out. Long enough for Sleepy Joe to shuffle off to the nursing home at least.
