Artist Comes Forward About Crumbleys’ Whereabouts After Their Capture, Lawyer Says

The lawyer for a Metro Detroit artist has identified his client as having a connection to the whereabouts of the parents of the alleged Oxford High school shooter during their disappearance last week.

Attorney Clarence Dass said Andrzej Sikora, 65, has contacted authorities in Detroit and Oakland County following the discovery of James and Jennifer Crumbley early Saturday in a commercial space linked to him in the 1100 block of Bellevue.

“Mr. Sikora has not been charged with any crime,” Dass said in a statement Sunday. “Nevertheless, upon learning of the Crumbleys’ arrest on Dec. 4, 2021, he voluntarily contacted the Detroit Police Department and Oakland County Sheriff’s Office to provide information. He maintains his innocence throughout this process and is fully cooperating with law enforcement to assist in their investigation.”

The Detroit Police Department declined a request for comment, deferring to the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office.

“I cannot confirm his involvement,” Second Deputy Chief Rudy Harper said Sunday afternoon.

Oakland County Undersheriff Mike McCabe confirmed that Sikora’s attorney had contacted the Sheriff’s Office. An interview was being arranged for Monday afternoon, according to a release Sunday from the office of Sheriff Michael Bouchard.

“Andrzej Sikora, 65, will be interviewed Monday afternoon by Sheriff’s Detectives as to any connection he may have to the disappearance of Jennifer and James Crumbley,” the release said.

How to View YouTube’s Hidden Dislike Counts on Videos Like Seth Rogan’s ‘Santa Inc.’ Trailer

Following Googled-owned YouTube’s decision to hide dislikes on the platform, viewers have taken to the comment section beneath each video to express their displeasure. But on some videos, like the recent trailer for Seth Rogen’s TV show Santa Inc., YouTube has disabled comments, removing viewers’ ability to react negatively altogether. Now, a browser plugin called “Return YouTube Dislike” can show you just how negative the public sentiment about Santa Inc. (or any any other video) really is.

YouTube recently implemented a policy hiding the number of dislikes on a video in an attempt to prevent mass-disliking of videos. Many have wondered if this move was an attempt to hide the fact that a video produced by YouTube became the most disliked video in YouTube history, or to generally hide the mass disapproval of progressive and woke content. But now, a handy browser extension allows YouTube users to view the current amount of dislikes on a video.

San Francisco Crime Surge Prompts City to Suspend Cannabis Tax to Help Dispensaries Versus Drug Dealers

City supervisors in San Francisco unanimously approved an ordinance suspending the city’s business tax on cannabis retailers last week.

San Francisco Supervisor Rafael Mandelman, who penned the ordinance, said in a statement to the San Francisco Examiner that the suspension is intended to help out legal cannabis retailers who are trying to compete with illegal drug dealers and a spike in theft.

The tax, which imposes a 1% to 5% citywide tax on gross receipts from cannabis businesses, was approved by voters in November 2018 and was slated to go into effect on Jan. 1, 2022. The ordinance, which passed Tuesday, suspends the tax through Dec. 31, 2022.

The Stanford Review reports that ahead of this year’s event, students received an email from one of the show’s producers informing them that masks are mandatory, and that they could wear as little clothes as they want, keeping in mind that is a “naked run.”

Too Good to Fact-Check? Academic Journal Publishes Hoax on Conservative Takeover of Higher Ed

Aprestigious academic journal has egg on its face for publishing a hoax paper that claimed to find widespread concerns about “undue” conservative influence in higher education.

“Right-wing money strongly appears to induce faculty and administrators … to believe that they are pressured to hire and promote people they regard as inferior candidates, to promote ideas they regard as poor, and to suppress people and ideas they regard as superior,” according to the abstract in Higher Education Quarterly.

Peer reviewers failed to perform basic due diligence on the paper submitted in April and approved in October, neglecting, for example, to verify that authors “Sage Owens” and “Kal Alvers-Lynde III” were UCLA professors as they claimed. Owens even used an encrypted email service for correspondence with the journal.

They didn’t check whether the conservative foundations named as active funders of higher education actually existed. The “Randy Eller Foundation” is made up, while the Olin Foundation shut down in 2005.

The author who goes by Owens told The Chronicle of Higher Education that the journal didn’t even ask to see their data: “Every page has some glaring errors.”

16 Years of Merkelism: A Retrospective

by David Engels

Very soon (next week), and yet many years too late, Angela Merkel’s reign will finally come to an end: 16 interminable years that have profoundly affected Germany, and from which we will all soon reap the dire fruits—everywhere in Europe.

Having managed the country with the sole aim of keeping her ‘clientelist’ system in power for as long as possible, Angela Merkel is disappearing from the political scene just as the first cracks are showing. Exsanguinated for 16 years, Germany is teetering on the brink of destabilising a continent for which it is the main economic and political engine. Ironically, the current generation will most likely not remember the Merkel era as the real reason for the looming crisis that will engulf it, but rather as the ‘good old days’ before the last facades of the post-war social, economic, and political paradigm crumbled for good.

Pope Brings 50 Migrants From Cyprus to Italy

Pontiff in Nicosia takes part in ecumenical prayer with migrants

ROME, DEC 3 — A total of 50 refugees will be transferred from Cyprus to Italy and all operations to transport and host them and help them integrate in Italy will be funded by the Holy See, at the initiative of Pope Francis.

Well-informed sources said that the first group of 12-15 people are scheduled to leave before Christmas while the others will follow between January and February 2022. From a juridical standpoint, the operation is called a “reallocation for humanitarian reasons”.

The transfer of the 50 refugees to Italy and their integration will be organized by the Community of Sant’Egidio.

They are mainly migrants from Syria, Congo, Cameroon and Iraq, including families with children.

The announcement of the migrants’ transfer to Italy was given during the pope’s visit to Cyprus, which started Thursday morning.

On Friday morning the pontiff met Archbishop Chrysostomos II and the Holy Synod at the Orthodox Cathedral in Nicosia.

Francis celebrated mass for the Catholic community of Cyprus, in memory of St Francis Saverio, in front of about 10,000 people at the GSP Stadium in Nicosia.

In the afternoon, the pontiff went to the Church of the Holy Cross in Nicosia, close to the wall dividing the Greek-Cypriot part from the Turkish-Cypriot, for a moment of ecumenical prayer with migrants.

Some of those who will be transferred to Italy were among those present.

Upon his arrival, Francis was welcomed at the altar by the Latin patriarch of Jerusalem, Mons. Pierbattista Pizzaballa.

I, you and your twin brother Jim are in my prayers. The fact that you are being attacked by the system is proof that you are on the right path: have perseverance and don’t be intimidated. We are at war, we have to fight.”

Richard Dawkins Signs Controversial Gender Declaration

Atheist and biologist Richard Dawkins signed a declaration in favor of “sex-based rights,” giving the movement an unexpected ally.

Dawkins urged his followers on Monday to sign the declaration, which includes a call to oppose providing gender reassignment surgery and puberty blockers to children and teenagers, “re-affirms women and girls’ sex-based rights, and challenges the discrimination we experience from the replacement of the category of sex with that of ‘gender identity,’“ according to its website.

UK Govt Workers Taught ‘Gender Isn’t Binary’ Using Woke ‘Genderbread Person’ Diagram

British government workers are being taught that “gender isn’t binary” using a woke “genderbread person” diagram, at the taxpayers’ expense.

The training, centred on a childish diagram of a gingerbread man — or “person” — was organised by the Civil Service Race Forum, which is a thing that exists for some reason, and a:gender, which supports “trans and intersex staff across government”, and observed by reporters from The Telegraph, who sat in on a video session attended by around 180 civil servants.

  1. “Shocking Hidden Camera Footage From Inside Forced Internment Camps in Australia (Video)” this is so Orwellian it’s not funny anymore…

  2. What a good article. Do not be too lazy to drive it through Google or Yandex translator. I translate texts from all over the world. Even written in unknown scribbles.
    Oddly enough, Indian English is the worst. And that’s what’s strange. Fjordman translates beautifully, and Spencer is very crooked. What is the problem?

    That xenophobia is not always a bad thing

    • Indian English (the largest subset of English in the world) is now a distinct dialect, different from British, American, or Australian English.

      • Many call centres (at least those run by UK companies) are based in the subcontinent, and some operatives with strong accents can be hard to understand. Occasionally though, there’s the joy of hearing one (usually an older man, I suspect) with crystal clear diction, speaking in an old-fashioned, courtly manner with a vocabulary which sounds somewhat dated.

  3. Polish National TV station TVP air a concert named “all united behind our border guards” tonight, shot at an airbase with celebrities and guests in support of the thousands of troops, police and volunteers who defended Poland against a migrant invasion these last few months ..

    Who said that protecting your country borders against Invasion can’t be fun ?

    • Good bless Poland, don’t take them in !! Never !!, once you do , game over , don’t listen to this horrible mafia EU. Do it yourself..

  4. A pair of lesbians are held in Argentina for the torture and murder of a 5 y.o. boy who they had serially traumatized. The boy’s mother had frequently denounced ‘macho’ behavior and mistreatment of LGBTQ. The boy’s father was rebuffed in custody attempts. RIP Abel Lucio Dupuy !!! All truth about LGBT !!

  5. [Copulate with] me, the Poles are carrying the can yet again for most of Europe.

    They were wonderful cavalry men back in the day and great with a sabre.

    Almost the whole of Europe watches Poland to see if they stand up for themselves as the rest of europe all cower behind their baguettes while seated on their Chinese made ikea crap-[fundamented] furniture.

    The yanks cant even organise a protest. They talk only of how many guns they have, yet haven’t fired a shot in anger.

    This tells you very clearly that you must organise at the local level to protect yourself and like minded people. Tribal allegiances are back in vogue. It wont be long before emblems mean something again and wearing one will be meaningful.

    • Are you actually capable of expressing yourself without profanities? Even after the Baron’s redactions, it’s becoming very tiresome.

      • Marky ole boy, Dawg’s colorful uses of proverbial aphorisms really is quite refreshing to get to the bloody point, unlike you tea drinking, crumpet eating, stiff upper lip Brits who are afraid of offending anyone lest they be charged with a hate crime. LOL
