A national “teach-in” movement is asking professors to set aside class time between Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and the presidential inauguration to “protest” oppression and challenge “Trumpism.”
As CampusReform’s Anthony Gockowski reports,so far, 17 American colleges and universities have signed on to participate in the campaign originating out of UCLA, including such prestigious institutions as Princeton and UC-Berkeley.
A total of 17 police officers were radicalized in greater Paris between 2012 and 2015, according to a book released by French journalists Christophe Dubois and Eric Pelletier.
In a book titled ‘Where Have Our Spies Gone? Small and Big Secrets of French Intelligence’, journalists Christophe Dubois and Eric Pelletier claimed that a total of 17 Muslim police officers were radicalized in the greater Paris region, Ile-de-France, between 2012 and 2015. Continue reading »
Two of seven suspects in a case of abduction and violent sexual assault have been jailed for four years each by a Swedish court, with the others released for lack of evidence.
The two so-called “stateless refugees” — so identified because they arrived in Sweden without identification papers and consequently can’t be deported — have been jailed for the rape which took place in Malmo, Sweden in March 2016.
While the Swedish court has not identified the criminals, Sweden’s Fria Tider (Free Times) has named the jailed men as 28-year-old Khaled Azez Hegrs and 23-year-old Tareq Bakkar, both of no fixed address. It is reported the men are from Kuwait and Syria respectively, and neither speak Swedish without a translator.
The court heard how the 23-year-old female victim was kidnapped at Gunpoint in Helsingborg, reports Swedish daily newspaper Expressen, before being driven 60 kilometres south to Malmo. The men covered the security cameras covering the basement of a Shisha-coffee shop in the city before taking the woman below — where she told officers other migrant men were waiting.

Late last night YouTube blocked the channel of the influential conservative politics and law website, “Legal Insurrection,” citing copyright infringement claims. The creator of the website, Cornell University Law Professor William Jacobson, told Fox News he was given no warning of the action and no opportunity to defend himself, saying “it’s very frustrating, it’s very scary, to have 8 years of content removed without a chance to defend yourself.”

A pair of articles by the Financial Times offers quite the take on disinformation hypocrisy.
I suggest the Financial Times look into the mirror if it wants to understand where the problem is.
Worse yet, to stop the spread of fake news, the FT editorial board wants restrictions on freedom of speech. Continue reading »
Facebook just can’t seem to catch a break lately. From questionable privacy policies and mass data collection of its users to its handling of the so-called “Fake News” epidemic (see “George Soros Is Funding Facebook’s “Third-Party Fact Checking” Organization Targeting ‘Fake News’“), Mark Zuckerberg is pissing off a lot of people these days. Unfortunately, when your entire business model is based on “friending” others, the alienation of various groups has caused enough people to “dislike” Facebook that the company has landed itself on 24/7 Wall Street’s list of “America’s Most Hated Companies.”
Coming in at #6, Facebook narrowly beat out Spirit Airlines, which, for anyone who has been left stranded by Spirit in Chicago’s O’Hare Airport in the middle of winter, that speaks volumes. Continue reading »
Despite the foundations and long tradition of Christianity in Canada, any accommodation of it — even at Christmas time — is largely rejected in the public school system, which supposedly adheres to secularism. But there is a single exception to the rule, as one religion seems to stand supreme:
Muslim students in the province of Ontario are entitled to hold weekly prayer meetings, held on Friday. These “Jumm’ah” prayer and sermon sessions have been the focus of intense criticism as the provincial public school system is not supposed to be promoting any religion or hosting any religious instruction.
The Peel school board in Mississauga (near Toronto) is not only allowing Islamic sermons, but it is also refusing to monitor the contents of those sermons. This is despite the very real risk of the jihad doctrine being spread. The Toronto Star reported that “Islamic schools, mosques in Canada are filled with extremist literature, according to a study.” More troubling was that “the authors of the study say what worried them was not the presence of extremist literature, but that they found nothing but such writings in several mosque libraries and Islamic schools.” Continue reading »
- The super-rich snapping up luxurious properties in New Zealand – but many don’t plan to move there anytime soon
- Instead, they are holding onto the homes as possible ‘boltholes’, should the west go into meltdown in the future
- Global leaders at Davos hinted they would want an escape route if the poor rose up against the growing super-rich
- New Zealand is rated the third safest country in the world, according to the 2013 Global Peace Index
- The buyers will also get to enjoy some of the world’s best scenery, a great quality of life and a favourable tax system
As world events threaten the comfortable lifestyles of the West’s super-rich they have begun buying up fabulous ‘bolt hole’ properties in the far-away safe haven of New Zealand.
The world’s elite are snapping up properties in the tiny country, which they see as a shelter from the threat of terrorism, civil unrest and instabilities in the financial markets.
Interest in pricey land and homes in the North and South Islands has soared in recent years following terrorist strikes and civil disobedience in North America, the UK and Europe.
The enhancement of security measures in Germany on New Year’s Eve didn’t prove sufficient as 23 complaints about sexual assaults have already been filed by women in the police office in Berlin.Late December, representatives of the German police stated that increased security measures were taken on New Year’s Eve in Berlin and other German cities to ensure people’s safety. About 1,700 police officers should have ensured security during the New Year celebrations in the German capital.
However, it didn’t help much in terms of preventing cases of sexual assaults committed by migrants against women. According to recent information, the suspects have been identified as migrants, Der Tagesspiegel reported on Tuesday. Continue reading »

The German government has identified 62 dangerous Islamists that it wants to deport to their native countries but is having issues because many of them lack proper identification.
Germany has been having great difficulty deporting failed asylum seekers who come mainly from the North and West African regions despite many of them being convicted criminals. New revelations suggest that the deportation problem has extended even to known Islamists that the government sees as a threat.
German Police Union chief Rainer Wendt has warned of the possibility of “police free areas” in which police and other authorities will be unable to enforce the law.
Mr. Wendt has warned German politicians to get the criminal element in the country under control or risk “police-free zones in Germany”. He said that “2017 must be a year of prosecution”, demanding police be allowed to properly enforce the law and hard measures be taken against those “who do not adhere to the laws”, Die Welt reports.
The Police Union head said no-go areas could end up being ruled under criminal laws, rather than the German rule of law, and said this year “must be a year of law enforcement. And indeed there must be consistent law enforcement for those who believe they do not have to stick to the laws in Germany.”
In order to combat criminal elements, Wendt said the government must make more use of technology to boost police presence and capability. He recommended more CCTV cameras in public areas which could work with pattern and facial recognition software to register potential crimes thus allowing police to stop crimes before they happen or better help them identify suspects.
You can’t make this stuff up!
The happy hookers union will be happy with this proposal: Germany Green Party pledges to pay for free sex with prostitutes for anyone who needs ‘sexual assistance’ and can’t afford it.
Sex with prostitutes will be paid for by the Government for anyone too poor for a hooker and deemed to need sexual assistance under German Green Party plans.
The party’s care spokeswoman Elisabeth Scharfenberg says doctors should have the right to issue the free prescriptions to their patients for ladies of the night. Continue reading »

They are titans of philosophy, without whose work an understanding of the subject is all but inconceivable.
But now students at a University of London college are demanding that such seminal figures as Plato, Descartes, Immanuel Kant and Bertrand Russell should be largely dropped from the curriculum simply because they are white. Continue reading »
HUNDREDS of British-bound migrants have returned to secret camps in Calais just months after the notorious “Jungle” was demolished.
Despite 10,000 being dispersed from the port those desperate for a new life in the UK have already drifted back in the hope of finding a new way to cross the Channel.The emergence of at least six rural settlements in the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region has raised fears of a fresh border crisis.
The 14-year-old Christian schoolboy was dragged into a mosque and ordered to spend time with an imam after he made comments in school about Muslims “trying to take over the country” according to local reports. (Gee, why he would think that?)
UK Express (h/t RJ) Channel is part of the counter-terror Prevent scheme, which aims to curb recruitment by MUSLIM terrorists and is used in the most serious cases of radicalIzation, targeting “individuals at risk of being drawn into violent extremism.” Continue reading »

Al-Jazeera – 23 December 2016
As tens of thousands of Christian pilgrims converge on the Holy Land this week to celebrate the birth of Jesus, senior Israeli rabbis have announced a war on the Christmas tree.
Problem, reaction, solution …
“The use of ankle tags should not be only available for convicted criminals after release from prison, but for those identified as a general threat as well, …”
Suspected Islamic extremists could be forced to wear electronic tags without trial in Germany, under radical new proposals put forward by the country’s justice minister.
Heiko Maas said he wanted to extend the use of electronic ankle tags to those deemed a potential terror threat even if they have not been convicted of any crime. Continue reading »
“The realistic future for Britain is Islamic.”
- Sharia courts administering Islamic justice in Britain are run by clerics who believe some offenders should have their hands chopped off, according to Muslim scholar Elham Manea. She described the prevailing attitude as “totalitarian” and as more backward than some parts of Pakistan.
- Teaching children fundamental British values is an act of “cultural supremacism,” according to the National Union of Teachers, which wants to replace the concept with one that includes “international rights.”
- More than 100,000 British Muslims sympathize with suicide bombers and people who commit other terrorist acts, according to a 615-page survey. Only one in three British Muslims (34%) would contact the police if they believed that somebody close to them had become involved with radical Islam. In addition, 23% of British Muslims said Islamic Sharia law should replace British law in areas with large Muslim populations.
- Belmarsh maximum-security prison in London has become “like a jihadi training camp,” according to testimony from a former inmate. The government was accused of burying a report on prison extremism. The report warned that staff have been reluctant to tackle Islamist behavior for fear of being labelled “racist.”
- Residents in Manchester received leaflets in their mailboxes, from a Muslim group called “Public Purity,” calling for a public ban on dogs.
- Voter fraud has been deliberately overlooked in Muslim communities because of “political correctness,” according to a government report.
- Police in Telford — dubbed the child sex capital of Britain — were accused of covering up allegations that hundreds of children in the town were sexually exploited by Pakistani sex gangs.
The Muslim population of Britain surpassed 3.5 million in 2016 to become around 5.5% of the overall population of 64 million, according to figures extrapolated from a recent study on the growth of the Muslim population in Europe. In real terms, Britain has the third-largest Muslim population in the European Union, after France, then Germany. Continue reading »
