Former Gov. Sarah Palin has criticized President-elect Donald Trump’s deal with the Carrier, in which as reported previously the air conditioner company would not outsource 1,100 workers to Mexico in exchange for $7 million in tax incentives over 10 years, saying that it yet another example of “corporate welfare.” The harsh criticism of Trump’s economic policy comes as she is reportedly under consideration to serve as Trump’s secretary of Veterans Affairs.
Writing an op-ed in the Young Conservatives blog, Palin said that while he is excited for the Carrier employees whose jobs are staying in Indiana, saying the deal is “a relief for hundreds of workers… Merry Christmas Indiana!”, she then joins Bernie Sanders and other critics in vlasting the deal as “crony capitalism” and an example of the “hallmark of corruption” and “socialism“, adding the arrangement could set “inconsistent, unfair and illogical precedent.” Continue reading »
France’s prison population is estimated to be 70 per cent Muslim – and yet there are fewer imams visiting French prisons than British. Critics of the French state say it is no surprise that Islamist recruiters, like those who enticed Paris terrorists Cherif Kouachi and Amedy Coulibaly, are finding prison a fertile hunting ground
The words that drifted into Karim Mokhtari’s ear were balm for a battered soul.
Inside the prison, where he was serving a ten-year sentence for armed robbery, Mr Mokhtari had finally – after a childhood spent in special educational establishments, teenage years carrying out ever greater acts of delinquency on the orders of his violent stepfather, and time spent in 15 different prisons – found someone to help.

From the article:
“For the first time in my life I fear for the safety and the future of my children.”
And rightfully so.
ANGELA Merkel was left squirming after an enraged party member told her on a video link that her refugee policy had left him “afraid for the safety and future of my four children”.
Mrs Merkel is normally protected from the sharp end of public opinion by phalanxes of flunkies, security personnel and office aides.
But there was no hiding place when she agreed to a virtual town hall meeting which linked her in her Berlin office with conservative voters in Frankfurt.
The embarrassing clash Thursday evening came days before her Christian Democratic Union party congress in Essen. Continue reading »
Trump is just another elite puppet (like Killary) that has been put in place by the elite to maybe create order out of chaos …
…, or maybe even more chaos (with people doing the depopulation for TPTB, who will be sitting in their D.U.M.B.’s, celebrating and opening some legendary Château Lafite-Rothschild bottles).
However, in my opinion, there will be an economic collapse, hyperinflation, civil war, revolution followed by WW3, all planned by TPTB for us.

You have to hand it to the regressive left, when they conjure propaganda they really know how to run with it. When their indoctrination doesn’t take, and the public stops them cold with a wall of skepticism, they don’t give up! No — the little buggers double down and go for broke!
I would point out, however, that this seemingly boundless drive to forsake all logic and reason in the name of ideology is not due to these people being special in their ambition. Rather, they are following a somewhat successful historic model; the model of communism. And by successful, I mean successfully destructive. Continue reading »
We recently learned how serious these criminals are about stealing the sovereignty of every person on planet earth. Actually, most people are willingly handing over their sovereignty to the banks/government and have no idea what they are actually doing.
When India ban, made illegal, the 500 and 1000 rupee banknote this move effected every 1 out of 7 people on planet earth. That means that every 7th person, anywhere and everywhere, you come in contact with may have been effected by this cash ban. Continue reading »

Migrant communities in Germany, especially those in poverty, are becoming more insular and rejecting western society and values in larger numbers according to a new study.
The biggest challenge of the migrant crisis has been the ability of the German government to properly integrate migrants from the Middle East, North Africa and elsewhere into German society. A new study by the German Association for Housing and Urban Development (VHW) shows that migrants, especially those of a lower income bracket, are becoming less integrated and some outright reject the culture of Germany entirely reports Die Welt.

Slovakia adopts law to effectively block Islam from becoming an official state religion. The Parliament in Bratislava has approved a bill that effectively will prevent Islam from being registered as a recognized religion. The small central European country’s population is 5.4 million, 62 percent of which is declared Roman Catholic.
IB Times President-elect Donald Trump may have raised eyebrows when he called for a ban on Muslims entering the U.S., but he isn’t alone when it comes to politicians targeting Islam in an effort to limit religious freedoms. The parliament of predominantly anti-migrant Slovakia passed a law on Wednesday making it difficult for Islam to qualify as a recognized religion in the former Communist state, Reuters reported.

Muslims who set up a proselytizing for Islam booth at a Christmas market have been told to shut it down after worried locals concerned about security complained to the town hall.
UK Express The Christmas market in the town of Rüdesheim on the Rhine, Germany, is a popular tourist destination famed for its festive atmosphere, which traditionally features stalls selling mulled wine, frankfurters and gifts.
But members of the Ahmadiyya Islamic community set up an information booth this year which has offended locals who complain that the stand is not in-fitting with the spirit of Christmas.

On November 30, one week after the Washington Post launched its witch hunt against “Russian propaganda fake news“, with 390 votes for, the House quietly passed “H.R. 6393, Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017“, sponsored by California Republican Devin Nunes (whose third largest donor in 2016 is Google parent Alphabet, Inc), a bill which deals with a number of intelligence-related issues, including Russian propaganda, or what the government calls propaganda, and hints at a potential crackdown on “offenders.”
A quick skim of the bill reveals “Title V—Matters relating to foreign countries”, whose Section 501 calls for the government to “counter active measures by Russia to exert covert influence … carried out in coordination with, or at the behest of, political leaders or the security services of the Russian Federation and the role of the Russian Federation has been hidden or not acknowledged publicly.” Continue reading »

Two days after Donald Trump’s election victory, I expressed the following sentiment in a post titled, Draining the Swamp? Wall Street is Already Loving Donald Trump:
To conclude, this article is primarily written for all my readers who are either Trump supporters, or who reluctantly voted for him. My message to you is that we need to hold this man’s feet to the fire. The election is over, and you got your desired outcome. Now is not the time to be a cheerleader. Now is not the time to behave exactly like Obama zombies did after he became an obvious betrayal. What allowed Obama to do all the bad things he did, was the fact that his supporters made endless excuses for him. Don’t make excuses for Trump. If you do, your life will get a lot worse and this country will decay far more into an authoritarian oligarchy than it already has. It is up to you to make sure he doesn’t become the Wall Street puppet I always feared he would be.
This message has become increasingly important with each passing day, and with every new cabinet disappointment. Mnuchin is not the only one. Trump picked the sister of Blackwater’s Erik Prince for Education Secretary (for more on Prince, see: America’s Top Rogue Mercenary – Blackwater’s Erik Prince is Under Federal Investigation) and Mitch McConnell’s wife for Transportation Secretary (see: Trump Fills the Swamp with Elaine Chao, Mitch McConnell’s Wife, for Transportation Secretary). The swamp is being filled rapidly, and the sooner we admit it, the better.
Those who recognize Trump’s betrayal most quickly will be average Americans who have been preyed upon by some of his cabinet picks. One of these people is Teena Colebrook. Continue reading »
A man from the French region of Normandy recently inherited a house from a deceased relative, only to discover his newly acquired home was actually a secret gold depository. Throughout the house, the man found a total of 220 lbs (3208.33 Troy oz.) of gold coins and bars totaling $3.7 million.
The man’s identity has yet to be released, but reports indicate he was in the process of preparing furniture for sale when he stumbled upon part of the horde.
Local auctioneer, Nicolas Fierfort, who had visited the home in order to appraise the furniture confirmed “5,000 gold pieces, two bars of 12 kilos and 37 ingots of 1 kilo” were found in total.
Fierfort also said the golden contents were “extremely well hidden” and scattered throughout the rest of the residence. Continue reading »
Shortly after Donald Trump picked former Goldman partner Steven Mnuchin as Treasury Secretary, he was rumored to be considering another Goldmanite, current President and COO Gary Cohn – who as reported earlier this week is already contemplating “life after Goldman” – for energy secretary. The follows a previous report that Trump may appoint Cohn as head of the Office of Management and Budget. So, as Trump wonders which other Goldman banker to poach to fully outsource financial management of the US directly to Goldman, a taxpayer-backed hedge fund which has already taken over the world’s central banks, he decided to spread the Wall Street love and earlier today announced that he has created an economic panel chaired by Blackstone’s Stephen Schwarzmann, whose members will also include such illustrious “non-swampies” as Jamie Dimon and Larry Fink, as well as various other “prominent U.S. business leaders” to get Wall Street’s advice on such matters as … job creation.
The President’s Strategic and Policy Forum will begin meeting with Trump in February after his inauguration. From the announcement:
President-elect Donald J. Trump today announced that he is establishing the President’s Strategic and Policy Forum. The Forum, which is composed of some of America’s most highly respected and successful business leaders, will be called upon to meet with the President frequently to share their specific experience and knowledge as the President implements his plan to bring back jobs and Make America Great Again. The Forum will be chaired by Stephen A. Schwarzman, Chairman, CEO, and Co-Founder of Blackstone. Continue reading »
Early this morning, in yet another session of panicked selling, the Turkish Lira crashed to new record lows to just shy of USDTRY 3.60, momentarily going bidless as the currency plunged nearly 400 pips in seconds, after Turkish President Recep Erdogan said the path for investors will be opened with lower interest rates, and urged the central bank to imitate Japan and U.S. where rates are low: “why should we go around with 14-15 percent?”
The answer is simple: the currency tends to drop when an economy is seen as weak, the political regime unstable, or – yes – a central bank cuts rates, which Turkey, as shown in the chart below, can not afford if it hopes to maintain a stable economy with the lira already at all time lows.
Normally, any other country would find itself in a dilemma: how to lower rates as per the president’s demands to stimulate investment and the economy, without killing the economy… but not Erdogan. As AFP notes, the Turkish president “urged” his fellow Turks on Friday to convert their foreign currencies into gold and lira to stimulate the country’s economy as the lira continued its slide against the dollar.
“For those who have foreign currencies under the pillow, come change this to gold, come change this to Turkish lira. Let the lira win greater value. Let gold win greater value,” he said during a televised speech in Ankara. Continue reading »
- A German court has ruled that seven Islamists who formed a vigilante patrol to enforce Sharia law on the streets of Wuppertal did not break German law and were simply exercising their right to free speech. The “politically correct” decision, which may be appealed, effectively authorizes the Sharia Police to continue enforcing Islamic law in Wuppertal.
- The self-appointed “Sharia Police” distributed leaflets which established a “Sharia-controlled zone” in Wuppertal. The men urged both Muslim and non-Muslim passersby to attend mosques and to refrain from alcohol, cigarettes, drugs, gambling, music, pornography and prostitution.
- Critics say the cases — especially those in which German law has taken a back seat to Sharia law — reflect a dangerous encroachment of Islamic law into the German legal system.
- In June 2013, a court in Hamm ruled that anyone who contracts marriage according to Islamic law in a Muslim country and later seeks a divorce in Germany must abide by the original terms established by Sharia law. The landmark ruling effectively legalized the Sharia practice of “triple-talaq,” obtaining a divorce by reciting the phrase “I divorce you” three times.
- A growing number of Muslims in Germany are consciously bypassing German courts altogether and instead are adjudicating their disputes in informal Sharia courts, which are proliferating across the country.
- “If the rule of law fails to establish its authority and demand respect for itself, then it can immediately declare its bankruptcy.” — Franz Solms-Laubach, Bild’s parliamentary correspondent.
A German court has ruled that seven Islamists who formed a vigilante patrol to enforce Sharia law on the streets of Wuppertal did not break German law and were simply exercising their right to free speech.
The ruling, which effectively legitimizes Sharia law in Germany, is one of a growing number of instances in which German courts are — wittingly or unwittingly — promoting the establishment of a parallel Islamic legal system in the country. Continue reading »
Writing for Yahoo News, National Political Columnist Matt Bai provides a suggestion to combat the so-called “fake news” epidemic that has become a major talking point of the mainstream media since Donald Trump’s victory in the presidential election. According to Bai, we should be “teaching our kids how to consume” information in an age where the internet has provided a press to anyone with a computer and a router.
Within his article, titled “The real problem behind fake news“, Bai calls fake news a “searing hot topic these days” and mentions the infamous WaPo article which cites a shadowy, anonymous organization known as PropOrNot (Propaganda or Not) that smears many legitimate conservative and libertarian news sources like Zero Hedge, Infowars, Breitbart, World Net Daily and The Ron Paul Institute as Russian propaganda.

Two years ago the Obama administration sought out to tackle a “crisis” that involved minors seeking out “human smugglers” to help with transportation across the U.S. – Mexico border. So, with a swipe of the pen, Obama signed an executive order allowing minors of certain Central American countries to flee to the U.S. under a “refugee/parole program.”
Two years later, there’s just one problem: 70% of the people admitted under the program are actually adults. According to MRC TV, official data from the State Department indicates that of the 1,600 aliens that have traveled to the U.S. under the CAM program to date, only 480 of them are actually under the age of 18.

Despite ongoing evidence of colossal economic waste and manifest ineptitude by the Pentagon’s network of defense contractors, it isn’t stopping their commitment to spending many more billions of taxpayer money. Moreover, their plans are becoming even more long-range, saddling future generations with even more debt to service.
Their latest brainchild, according to a report in the Washington Post is an undersea network of drones and drone launch “pods” that will cover the 7 seas with patrol and defense capabilities.
Some of this was put on display during the recent military exercise among many of the allied nations known as “Unmanned Warrior 2016” that took place off the Scottish coast. A wide range of autonomous systems were tested, as well as a test of an overall web of communication between land, air, and sea vehicles.

A YOUNG woman in Saudi Arabia is facing calls for her execution after she was pictured without a hijab.
Malak Al Shehri sparked fury on social media after she went out in public in the conservative capital Riyadh without a full body cloak – called an abaya – or a veil.
Some raged that she should be “thrown to the dogs” or “beheaded” for daring to stand against the country’s strict rules.
But hundreds came to her defence and praised her “bravery” for sharing the picture on Twitter. Continue reading »
