Wild boars kill ISIS terrorists?

Justice, sweet justice.

Three Islamic State militants setting up an ambush in a bitterly contested area of northern Iraq were killed by a herd of stampeding boars, local leaders say.

Sheikh Anwar al-Assi, a chief of the local Ubaid tribe and supervisor of anti-ISIS forces, told The Times of London the militants were hiding on the edge of a field about 50 miles southwest of Kirkuk when the boars overwhelmed them Sunday. Five other militants were injured, al-Assi said. He said the group was poised to attack a band of local tribesmen who had fled to nearby mountains since militants seized the town of Hawija three years ago.

“It is likely their movement disturbed a herd of wild pigs, which inhabit the area as well as the nearby cornfields,” he said.

Al-Assi said the militants had summarily executed 25 people attempting to flee the militant’s would-be caliphate in the three days before the boars attacked. Hawija, about 100 miles south of Mosul, sees dozens of residents flee to Kurdish Kirkuk daily, and the Iraqi military has planned to launch an offensive in the region after a laborious effort to liberate Mosul is completed.

Happy Dance time! Mother of All Bombs death toll rising!

Yes, more dead Jihadi swine is great news. Via The Right Scoop

The Associated Press says the death toll is rising!

The number of militants killed in an attack by the largest non-nuclear weapon ever used in combat by the U.S. military has risen to 94, an Afghan official said Saturday.

Ataullah Khogyani, spokesman for the provincial governor in Nangarhar, said the number of Islamic State group dead was up from the 36 reported a day earlier. A Ministry of Defense official had said Friday the number of dead could rise as officials assessed the bomb site in Achin district.

“Fortunately there is no report of civilians being killed in the attack,” Khogyani said.

The U.S. attack on a tunnel complex in remote eastern Nangarhar province near the Pakistan border killed at least four IS group leaders, Khogyani said. He said a clearance operation to assess the site of the attack was continuing.

The Right Scoop also points out what soldiers are saying about America using its big stick

The Left hijacks another worthwhile cause

Give the Left a worthwhile cause and they will latch onto it, Then, slowly, but most assuredly, they will bastardize it, twist it, and use it to further their agenda. This time the cause is fighting bullying, and the Left is being joined by CAIR 

Educrats and Islamomaniacs are teaming up to impose ham-fisted moonbattery under the banner of antibulling:

Muslim safe spaces, increased lessons on Islam during social studies classes, and other measures will be adopted by San Diego Unified School District to combat bullying.

The Council for American-Islamic Relations and school officials in southern California collaborated on a “holistic” approach to bullying that will likely be implemented this fall. The changes, which include adding Muslim holidays to school calendars, are the result of a study directed by the San Diego school board in July 2016.

CAIR is a terror support group affiliated with Hamas.

“It’s more of a comprehensive program, not just a curriculum,” said Stan Anjan, the district’s executive director of family and community engagement, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported Wednesday. “We’re looking at it from a very integrated and holistic approach.” …

“If we do this right, San Diego Unified School District would be the leading school district in the nation to come up with a robust and beautiful anti-bully and anti-Islamophobic program,” Mr. Anjan told the newspaper.

If CAIR is involved, it is propaganda, and nothing more. No parent should allow their child to have anything to do with this. Here is more on CAIR

Having explained why the UAE listed CAIR on its terror manifest, we must ask a second question: Is the listing warranted? Can a Washington-based organization with ties to the Obama White House, the U.S. Congress, leading media outlets, and prestigious universities truly be an instigator of terrorism? CAIR can rightly be so characterized. True, it does not set off bombs, but, as the UAE’s foreign minister explains, “Our threshold is quite low. . . . We cannot accept incitement or funding.” Indeed, CAIR incites, funds, and does much more vis-à-vis terrorism:

It apologizes for terrorist groups: Challenged repeatedly to denounce Hamas and Hezbollah as terrorist groups, CAIR denounces the acts of violence but not their sponsors. It is connected to Hamas: Hamas, designated a terrorist organization by the U.S. and many other governments, indirectly created CAIR and the two groups remain tight. Examples: In 1994, CAIR head Nihad Awad publicly declared his support for Hamas; the Holy Land Foundation (HLF), a Hamas front group, contributed $5,000 to CAIR; in turn, CAIR exploited the 9/11 attacks to raise money for HLF; and, this past August, demonstrators at a CAIR-sponsored rally in Florida proclaimed “We are Hamas!” It settled a lawsuit: CAIR initiated a libel lawsuit in 2004 over five statements by a group called Anti-CAIR. But two years later, CAIR settled the suit with prejudice (meaning that it cannot be reopened), implicitly acknowledging the accuracy of Anti-CAIR’s assertions, which included: “CAIR is a terrorist supporting front organization that is partially funded by terrorists”; “CAIR . . . is supported by terrorist supporting individuals, groups and countries”; “CAIR has proven links to, and was founded by, Islamic terrorists”; and “CAIR actively supports terrorists and terrorist supporting groups and nations.” It includes individuals accused of terrorism: At least seven board members or staff at CAIR have been arrested, denied entry to the U.S., or were indicted on or pled guilty to (or were convicted of) terrorist charges: Siraj Wahhaj, Bassem Khafagi, Randall (“Ismail”) Royer, Ghassan Elashi, Rabih Haddad, Muthanna Al-Hanooti, and Nabil Sadoun.

In short CAIR has no good will towards America, or liberty. In short they are our enemies

When it comes to giving advice about “Islamophobia,” CAIR is the last organization Republicans—or anyone, for that matter—should listen to. That’s because CAIR has been listed as a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates (UAE), has categorized any organization critical of Islamism and Islamist extremism as either outright promoting hatred of Muslims or supporting anti-Islam themes, and has been active in shutting down free speech in the name of Islamophobia.

The “values” of CAIr are incompatible with Western culture

While CAIR has shown support for terrorist organizations even while speaking out against violence, it has spent much of its money and energy going after so-called Islamic hate groups and individuals in the United States. In its recent report, “Legislating Fear: Islamophobia and Its Impact in the United States,” CAIR outlines its vision for America and the groups it sees standing in the way of that vision.

CAIR divides organizations and individuals who are standing in the way of those goals into two groups. The “Inner Core” comprises organizations or individuals “whose primary purpose is to promote prejudice against or hatred of Islam and Muslims and whose work regularly demonstrates Islamophobic themes.” The “Outer Core” groups are those who might not appear to be promoting prejudice against or hatred of Islam and Muslims, but their work “regularly demonstrates or supports Islamophobic themes.”

Thirty-seven groups make up the Inner Core, including ACT! for America, American Freedom Law Center, David Horowitz Freedom Center, Florida Family Association, Jihad Watch, Middle East Forum, and Tennessee Freedom Coalition.

Thirty-two groups make up the Outer Core, including American Center for Law and Justice, American Family Association, Christian Broadcasting Network, Eagle Forum, Fox News, Liberty Counsel, Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation, National Review, The Mark Levin Show, The Rush Limbaugh Show, The Savage Nation, Washington Times, and Worldnet Daily.

Along with publishing these kinds of warnings about Islamophobia both in Inner and Outer Core groups, CAIR is active in shutting down the speech of anyone it has labeled anti-Muslim. CAIR was recently successful in getting a Federal Bureau of Investigation representative to withdraw from speaking at a Texas event called “Domestic Jihad & Isis,” hosted by St. Mary’s University’s Center for Terrorism Law in San Antonio, that was initially sponsored by ACT! for America. After CAIR’s protest, the event dropped ACT! as a sponsor and one of its speakers, John Guandolo, whom CAIR said was an “anti-Muslim conspiracy theorist.”

Again, if CAIR has its hands in this, parents must not say no, they must say HELL NO!

*VIDEO* Wild Bill Vs Hillary Clinton

.

Perhaps the most dangerous aspect of a Hillary Presidency is………

What would Hillary’s immigration stance be? No, I am not referring to a “wall” that is never going to get built anyway, no matter which party s in power. I am not even wondering about our Southern border, which is a crucial issue. No, my biggest concern is immigration by refugees. Refugees whose values are simply incompatible with American values. Daniel Greenfield has similar concerns

The wave of Muslim refugee terror began with a bomb targeting a U.S. Marine charity run in New Jersey. By evening a pressure cooker full of shrapnel has exploded outside a Manhattan building for the blind. An hour later, a rampaging Muslim terrorist began stabbing people inside a Macy’s, asking them if they were Muslim and shouting the name of “Allah,” the genocidal Islamic deity of mass murder.

And that was one Saturday, two Muslim refugees and a wave of national terror 1,200 miles apart.

What did Elizabeth, New Jersey and St. Cloud, Minnesota have in common?

New Jersey has the second largest Muslim population in the country. This isn’t the first time it was used as a staging ground for Muslim terror.

11 of the 19 September 11 hijackers hung out in Paterson (known colloquially as Paterstine). Head toward Jersey City and you can see where Muslim enemies of this country stood on rooftops and cheered the attacks on September 11. It’s also where the World Trade Center bombing mastermind and the Blind Sheikh who provided religious guidance for a proposed wave of Islamic terror operated.

Go south and in Elizabeth you can pass the First American Fried Chicken joint where the Rahami clan made life miserable for their American neighbors before one of their spawn began his bombing spree.

New Jersey is a map of Muslim terror plots because of its huge Muslim population.

Ahmad Khan Rahami came to America as the son of an Afghan refugee. He stabbed a man two years ago. His family was a local nuisance who cried “Islamophobia” at the least provocation. His brother was a Jihadi sympathizer and may have fled the country after assaulting a police officer. By the time Ahmad was done, he had wounded a police officer and 29 other people. If his plot had succeeded, he might have pulled off the largest Muslim terror atrocity in the country since September 11.

And of course Minnesota has similar issues

Minnesota has suffered from the presence of the largest Somali migrant population in the country. And so a state which used to be known for its Swedish and German immigrants instead became a recruiting ground for ISIS and Al-Shabab. Al-Shabab, which is aligned with Al Qaeda, attacked the Westgate mall in Kenya a few years ago. The Somali killers quizzed their victims to distinguish Muslims from non-Muslims.

Dahir Adan, the Somali Muslim migrant who invaded America from a refugee camp in Kenya, attempted to duplicate that attack, asking those he stabbed at the Crossroads Mall if they were Muslims.

Dozens of Somali migrants in America have joined Al-Shabab and ISIS. The only difference between Dahir Adan and them is that instead of getting on a plane back to his native Somalia to join the local Jihadists, he carried out his Jihad against the nighttime shoppers in a Macy’s.

The Crossroads attack was the tragic price paid by innocent people for Muslim refugee resettlement.

Muslim Somali migration dramatically increased under Obama, rising from 2,500 in 2008 to around 8,000 and 9,000 in the last few years. Somali settlers represent almost 1 percent of the population of Minnesota. Most of the “refugees” dumped in St. Cloud were Somalis migrants and Lutheran Social Services has taken the lead in inflicting Somalis on the unfortunate natives of St. Cloud.

From the very beginning of their arrival, the Somali colonists were a problem for the people of St. Cloud. They displaced American workers and clashed with the native population. In this decade, St. Cloud has become 10% Somali. The Crossroads attack was the inevitable result of that demographic growth.

What happened in New Jersey and Minnesota is the same thing that has been happening in Europe. Islamic terrorism is caused by Muslim migration. As the Muslim population grows, so does its terror.

Yes, just like Europe. well, Europe has it far worse, for now, because it has been more heavily engaged in allowing mass immigration of people who, again, hold very different values than the West does. Yes, Europe has it worse, for now. But Europe also grants us a preview what is to come. And that will be sooner rather than later given the Left thirst for more refugees, more Muslim refugees to be specific. The fact is the American Left is turning a blind eye to reality. Anyone who writes what Greenfield writes will be blasted as a bigot, as Islamophobic, or intolerant. Facts be damned, what we see in Europe be damned. We must have tolerance, or at least the Left’s perverse definition of tolerance in America. Even if it kills some, or many of us. 

The fact is, there are numerous reasons for our government, yes both parties turning a blind eye to illegal immigration. Some are economic, some are, based on the Left’s version of fairness. But at the heart of both illegal immigration, and the influx of Muslim “refugees” is the Left’s hatred of American sovereignty. If the Left believes anything at all, it believes America must be broken and remade. America was founded on every value and principle the Left abhors. Individual liberty, natural rights, free markets are all despised by the Left, which is Collectivist in nature. So, anything that alters America is and will be supported by the Left.

Immigration, of course is not the problem. Immigration sand assimilation IS the problem. The Left, of course sees assimilation as a bad thing. After all, bringing in immigrants who share America’s  Judeo-Christian values, and love of Individualism will not change America will it? Stressing assimilation is never going to really change what America is. Of course not. Your religion, or skin color do not matter so much if you share the basic American values of free markets, individual liberty, respect for the rights of others and self-determination. So, assimilation is undesirable according to the Left. Again, the Left is using immigration, both legal and illegal to change, yes fundamentally change America.

This issue, to me might be the most crucial reason we must never elect Hillary Clinton. We know what her immigration positions will be. Hillary is of the Left, she shares their values, and she will seek to do everything in her power to continue the Obama administration disastrous refugee and immigration policies. And yes, her policies will lead to more, not fewer terror attacks. If you do not believe me ask France how its immigration policies are working out. Or ask Germany, or Sweden. Of course, we must also consider how a President Hillary would respond to increased acts of Jihad. She would likely blame America, who else? And she would be certain to use such attacks to increase pressure for stricter gun laws, which would make us less safer still. She would likely lead a charge to punish “anti-Muslim” speech as well. Again, she, and the Left would eagerly use such a situation to further push their ultimate goal of altering America. Remember, the Left never allows a good crisis to, well you know the rest!

Another terror test run in France?

It does not look good

Via Daily Mail:

A car filled with gas cylinders was today found parked outside a synagogue in the south of France.

The suspicious vehicle was discovered by police officers after it was left near the Bar Yohaye synagogue in Marseille.

Dozens of worshippers were inside the building and were attending a service on Saturday morning.

The discovery comes just one week after a similar vehicle – also filled with gas cylinders – was left outside the famous Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris.

A jihadi woman, 29, who is on a terror watch list, masterminded the plan and disappeared with her boyfriend, aged 34, last Sunday morning.

Her Peugeot 607 was found with its lights flashing in a no-parking zone in Paris’s Rue du Petit-Point, across the River Seine from Notre Dame, at 7.30am.

There were seven gas canisters inside – prompting fears of a terrorist attack on the ancient place of worship, which is high on a list of ISIS targets.

Three women were arrested and it was reported that they were allegedly planning to blow up the busy Gare du Lyon train station in Paris.

The Religion of Peace strikes again

Terrorism down under

SYDNEY — A French man shouting the Arabic phrase “Allahu akbar” stabbed a British woman to death and wounded two men in an attack at a hostel in northeast Australia, police said Wednesday.

The 29-year-old suspect did not have any known links to the Islamic State group and appeared to have acted alone, Queensland Police Deputy Commissioner Steve Gollschewski said. Police were trying to determine whether the man had been motivated by extremism, or something else.

Ah, motivation? Well listen to the killers battle cry

The man, a French national visiting Australia, shouted “Allahu akbar” — the Arabic phrase meaning “God is great” — both during the attack and while being arrested by police, Gollschewski said. He has not yet been charged, but police weren’t looking for any other suspects related to the incident.

I would suspect that might be a tiny clue, but, then again, I am not well versed in PC avoidance of reality

Obama Admin Hiding Info From Congress On $1.7B ‘Ransom Payment’ To Iran – Washington Free Beacon

The Obama administration is withholding from congressional leaders documents and information related to a $1.7 billion U.S. taxpayer funded payout to Iran earlier this year, furthering accusations the cash was part of a “ransom payment” to free U.S. hostages from Iranian custody, according to communications obtained by the Washington Free Beacon and conversations with lawmakers.

The controversy over this payment – which arose from the settlement of a longstanding legal dispute with Iran – has deepened in recent weeks after Iranian officials disclosed that nearly all of the U.S. money had been spent to strengthen Iran’s military.

Congressional efforts to compel the Obama administration to come clean about the payment have yet to yield results, prompting a separate effort to determine whether the White House overpaid Iran and is now withholding information that would prove this claim, according to documents obtained by the Free Beacon.

Lawmakers suspect that key records relating to the $1.7 billion payout were not properly maintained over the years and are now seeking to force the Obama administration to hand over the evidence.

The timing of the March legal settlement has raised questions on Capitol Hill among lawmakers who view it as part of the Obama administration’s effort to free 10 U.S. sailors who had been abducted by Iran. It also is suspected that the payout was another byproduct of last summer’s nuclear agreement with Iran.

“Earlier this year, the administration announced a $1.7 billion settlement to a case that had been pending for 35 years before the [International Claims] Tribunal, claiming it was in the American public’s best interest to settle,” Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R., Fla.), one of the lawmakers spearheading the disclosure effort, told the Free Beacon…

Europe Crumbles: Support For Angela Merkel Plummets As EU’s Growing Divisions Laid Bare – Daily Express

The German Chancellor’s approval ratings have plummeted in the countries hit hardest by Brussels’ chaotic economic policies and the spiralling migrant crisis.

She is now viewed with “no confidence” by huge swathes of the European population at a time when the EU is facing potential oblivion in the aftermath of the Brexit vote.

The results show a growing backlash against Germany from the rest of a bloc that feels Mrs Merkel has trashed their economies and unleashed huge levels of migration for her own country’s gain.

And the survey was carried out before Britain voted to leave the EU, with it likely that her approval ratings have sunk even lower still since the historic June 23 referendum.

Many southern European nations have suffered terrible hardship and depression following the imposition of the euro, which has fuelled an economic boom in Germany by driving down the cost of its exports.

Meanwhile many Balkan and eastern European countries blame Mrs Merkel for unleashing chaotic mass migration on their borders following her infamous welcome for the whole of the Middle East to settle in Germany.

The new poll, by the respected US Pew Research Center, shows that the German leader’s approval ratings are unsurprisingly lowest in Greece, which has been forced into abject austerity and poverty by Berlin…

Boris Johnson Says He Isn’t Seeking To Replace British Prime Minister David Cameron – Wall Street Journal

Late Wednesday, Boris Johnson and Michael Gove, who teamed up to win the campaign for Britain to leave the European Union, had their arms around each other, celebrating their victory at a Conservative Party fundraiser at the Hurlingham Club, a members-only hangout in West London.

Mr. Johnson, London’s former mayor, was hours away from formally entering the race to become the country’s next prime minister, with Mr. Gove, the current justice secretary, as his co-chair.

But the next morning – in a tumultuous turnabout – it was Mr. Gove who threw his hat in the ring, blindsiding Mr. Johnson.

Mr. Gove, who had long insisted he didn’t want, and wasn’t equipped for, the job, said he felt he had no choice. He said he had lost confidence in Mr. Johnson’s ability to form a team to lead the U.K. through its separation from the EU…

IRS Scandal: No End To Lois Lerner’s Lawlessness – Investor’s Business Daily

Justice: IRS official Lois Lerner didn’t merely target conservative groups to take away their tax-free status, as first suspected, but also handed over more than a million pages of tax returns to the Justice Department. That’s a crime.

It’s now apparent, if it wasn’t before, that the Internal Revenue Service – which was created solely to collect revenues due the government, not to persecute the administration’s political enemies – has become a kind of rogue agency.

Its chief, John Koskinen, is being threatened with impeachment for not telling the truth in testimony before Congress. But Lerner, more than even Koskinen, has become a symbol of IRS arrogance and illegality.

As Eliana Johnson of the National Review reported this week, Lerner transmitted some 1.25 million pages of tax returns of mostly Tea Party and conservative groups to the Justice Department in October 2010. In Johnson’s words, this was “likely the largest unauthorized disclosure of tax-return information in history.”

For some perspective, this took place at the start of a three-year period during which the same groups found their applications for tax-free status inexplicably held up, while those for liberal groups were more or less routinely rubber-stamped.

But the actual transmission of their tax returns as part of a fishing expedition by Lerner is the big problem here – because she also transmitted IRS Schedule B data, which includes the names and addresses of contributors to those conservative groups. That’s a big no-no…

ISIS Terrorists Used Obama’s ‘Fast And Furious’ Gun During Paris Attack – Gateway Pundit

On the evening of 13 November 2015, ISIS linked terrorists slaughtered 130 people in a series of coordinated attacks in Paris.

The Islamists murdered 89 concertgoers at the Bataclan during a concert by the Eagles of Death Metal.

ISIS later released a poster of the Paris killers.

One of the guns used in the November 13, 2015 Paris terrorist attacks was from Phoenix where Obama allowed criminals and cartel members to buy thousands of guns in his Fast and Furious gun-walking program.

Judicial Watch reported:

One of the guns used in the November 13, 2015 Paris terrorist attacks came from Phoenix, Arizona where the Obama administration allowed criminals to buy thousands of weapons illegally in a deadly and futile “gun-walking” operation known as “Fast and Furious.”.

A Report of Investigation (ROI) filed by a case agent in the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives (ATF) tracked the gun used in the Paris attacks to a Phoenix gun owner who sold it illegally, “off book,” Judicial Watch’s law enforcement sources confirm. Federal agents tracing the firearm also found the Phoenix gun owner to be in possession of an unregistered fully automatic weapon, according to law enforcement officials with firsthand knowledge of the investigation.

The investigative follow up of the Paris weapon consisted of tracking a paper trail using a 4473 form, which documents a gun’s ownership history by, among other things, using serial numbers. The Phoenix gun owner that the weapon was traced back to was found to have at least two federal firearms violations – for selling one weapon illegally and possessing an unregistered automatic – but no enforcement or prosecutorial action was taken against the individual…

Judge Upholds Voter Citizenship Checks – Washington Times

Kansas, Alabama and Georgia can demand their residents submit proof of citizenship before signing up to vote even if they’re using the federal government’s registration forms, a judge said Wednesday, delivering a win to states concerned about voter fraud.

The League of Women Voters and the Obama administration had tried to halt the practice, arguing that federal law doesn’t require an extensive citizenship check when people register to vote, and saying the three states were imposing an extra burden on voters.

But Judge Richard J. Leon said that while it may be an inconvenience to require proof of citizenship, and voter registration drives may have to do more work to get folks signed up, it’s not an insurmountable burden – and certainly less so than trying to explain Obamacare.

“The organizational plaintiffs and their members will undoubtedly have to expend some additional time and effort to help individuals,” Judge Leon wrote. “But let’s be candid: doing so pales in comparison to explaining to the average citizen how the [Affordable Care Act] or tax code works!”

Since the voter groups didn’t show a real and irreparable harm, he rejected their request for a preliminary injunction.

The ruling is the latest in a years-long struggle by some states to combat potential voter fraud by insisting voters prove they are citizens. In one Kansas count alone, officials count 25 instances of non-citizens attempting to register to vote.

“This is a very real problem and the only way to solve the problem is to require proof of citizenship on the front end,” said Kris W. Kobach, Kansas’ secretary of state…

A federal judge on Wednesday ordered the State Department to produce the e-mail records of Hillary Clinton’s scheduler during her tenure as secretary of state, expanding an investigation being pursued by conservative nonprofit Citizens United into the overlap between Clinton’s official travel and her meetings with foreign Clinton Foundation donors.

Citizens United is slated to receive all e-mails sent to and from Lona Valmoro, Clinton’s State Department scheduler, in the two-week periods before each of 14 international trips Clinton took during her four years in office. David Bossie, president of Citizens United, hopes to confirm suspicions that Clinton maintained an off-the-books schedule, meeting with Clinton Foundation donors on the taxpayer’s dime. “Citizens United wants to know how many overseas dinners Secretary Clinton attended with Clinton Foundation donors that didn’t make it on her schedule,” he says.

YouTuber Calum McSwiggan Faked Gay Hate Crime Injuries In Police Cell After Being Arrested For Vandalism – Daily Mirror

YouTuber Calum McSwiggan claimed to have been “beaten up” after he left a gay club in West Hollywood, but according to reports, officials have since rubbished his story.

Posting to his Instagram account, the 26-year-old vlogger – who runs a LGBT and lifestyle channel – shared a picture of his injuries as he recovered in a hospital bed after an alleged attack at a nightclub on Sunday night.

“After one of the most wonderful weekends at VidCon we went out to a gay club to celebrate, and towards the end of the evening I was separated from my friends and beaten up by three guys,” explained the caption.

But in a statement to The Advocate , Captain Holly Perez, from the West Hollywood Station of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, explained that officers had been “unable to substantiate the assault” and that the pictured injuries were self-inflicted inside his police cell.

The police statement explained that authorities found him with “no visible injuries” after the alleged attack and were forced to arrest him after they “observed him vandalising a car”.

It went on to describe how the YouTuber was booked and placed in a cell where he was “then observed injuring himself with the handle and receiver to a payphone inside the cell.”

Pro-Brexit Leader Nigel Farage Taunts E.U. Parliament: ‘You’re Not Laughing Now’ – Washington Post

Tensions between the European Union and Britain, as well as within the country itself, spilled over to Brussels on Tuesday, as Nigel Farage, the leader of the right-wing populist U.K. Independence Party (UKIP), told assembled members of the European Parliament that the E.U. was “in denial” about its failure and the fact that it was falling apart.

“When I came here 17 years ago and said I wanted to lead a campaign to get Britain to leave the European Union, you all laughed at me,” Farage said in a speech that was carried live by TV channels in Britain and across Europe.

“Well, you’re not laughing now, are you?” Farage said. He continued to predict that the U.K. would not be the last nation to leave the European Union.

The president of the European Parliament, Martin Schulz, had to calm jeering parliamentarians after Farage told them: “Most of you have never done a proper job in your lives.”

Schulz accused MPs of “acting like UKIP,” but also criticized Farage for his lack of respect.

Farage’s provocations did not go unanswered.

“I am surprised that you are here,” Jean-Claude Juncker, the president of the European Commission, told Farage in parliament. “You were fighting for the exit. The British people have voted in favor of the exit. Why are you here?” European MPs reacted with applause and cheers to Juncker’s speech…

Ryan Challenger Paul Nehlen Donates Rifles, Armor And Surveillance Equipment To Border Sheriffs – Breitbart

Paul Nehlen, the primary challenger to House Speaker Paul Ryan, revealed exclusively to Breitbart Texas that he has personally donated over $40,000 in urgently needed rifles, body armor, and surveillance and night vision equipment to two Texas border sheriffs departments that were left in dire need by the Obama Administration and Congressional leaders.

The donated items were given to Hudspeth and Colberson counties, both rural border counties that were forced to split $42,000 in governmental funding to combat an increasingly violent conflict between U.S. law enforcement agencies and Mexican transnational criminal groups (cartels).

Breitbart Texas obtained an exclusive peak at Nehlen’s latest campaign ad for his fight with Paul Ryan over Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional District. Nehlen’s ad asserts that Paul Ryan has failed to champion border security and actually champions a borderless America…

Corrupt Clinton Aide Rigged The Benghazi Accountability Review Board – 100PercentFedUp

The big question in all this corruption is why these people aren’t in jail! The collusion between Cheryl Mills and Hillary Clinton had to be there. Is there anyone out there who REALLY believes that Clinton isn’t culpable in all this? This entire thing is sickening!

Remember the Accountability Review Board, appointed in the wake of the Benghazi attack that killed four Americans in September 2012? The ARB, headed by former ambassador Thomas Pickering, provided the first attempt at oversight over the State Department’s actions in Benghazi and Libya following the sacking of the American consulate. Pickering’s probe didn’t bother to interview State officials of higher rank, such as Hillary Clinton, and tried to lay the responsibility on low-level staffers instead.

According to the new majority report from the House Select Committee on Benghazi, that may not have been a coincidence. The report accuses longtime Hillary aide Cheryl Mills of undue influence over the ARB, from the composition of the committee to access to information and witnesses, Politico reports:

Cheryl Mills, the longtime attorney, friend and former chief of staff for Hillary Clinton, influenced the findings of an internal State Department review of the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack, according to a draft of the final House Benghazi Committee report.

A section of the report obtained by POLITICO says the so-called Accountability Review Board did not act independently, as it was supposed to do, and was consistently influenced by Mills. Mills, the report says, helped select members of the panel, gave at least one other State Department official permission to talk to the reviewers, oversaw the production of some documents reviewed by the board and helped edit the final report.

“The decisions to deviate from longstanding processes raise questions about the board’s independence, thoroughness and therefore the fullness of their findings of accountability,” the report reads…

Muslim Terrorists Slaughter Dozens At Istanbul Airport, Injure 147 More – Daily Mail

Three suicide bombers have launched a ‘major, co-ordinated’ attack at Istanbul’s Ataturk Airport, spraying bullets into crowds of terrified passengers and security personnel before blowing themselves up, injuring more than 140 people and leaving a death toll expected to rise to 50.

Eyewitnesses described the moment a hero policeman shot down one of the suicide bombers before he was able to detonate his explosives, giving holidaymakers a chance to escape and saving countless lives.

In shocking footage that captured the moment, the gunman can be seen running through the international arrivals terminal before falling to the ground – apparently felled by a police bullet – and sending his AK-47 skidding across the floor.

The police officer then approaches the gunman before realising he is about to detonate his suicide vest and running for his life…

More Than 2,000 Illegal Aliens Were Released From Prison Onto American Streets Last Year – Gateway Pundit

Liberals love to claim Obama has been tough on immigration and has deported tons of illegals but the facts tell a different story.

A new report from FOX News indicates that thousands of illegals who should have been deported after getting out of prison were allowed to stay for some reason:

Obama administration pressed to deport illegal immigrant ex-cons

More than 2,000 illegal immigrants were turned loose on American streets after serving prison sentences last year – often because their home countries refused to take them back – and many subsequently committed crimes including rape and murder, a key lawmaker charged Monday.

The claim, by Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, comes a week after a federal audit blamed the Department of Homeland Security and an uncooperative Haiti for an illegal immigrant being freed to kill a Connecticut woman.

Grassley, who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee, called on the Obama administration to put renewed pressure on countries that won’t take back their own criminals after they have been ticketed for deportation.

“Dangerous criminals, including murderers, are being released every day because their home countries will not cooperate in taking them back,” Grassley wrote in a June 27 letter to Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson…

Senate Dems Block $1.1 Billion Funding To Combat Zika Virus – PJ Media

Summer is in full swing, Fourth of July picnics are around the corner, and there is still a lack of funding to combat the Zika virus after Senate Democrats blocked a $1.1 billion funding package today.

The funding was attached to the Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, which failed to pass the 60-vote cloture threshold by a vote of 52-48. Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.) was the only Dem to vote in favor of the bill; Sens. Mike Lee (R-Utah) and James Lankford (R-Okla.) voted against it.

Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) complained that the bill was stuffed with “a goody bag for the fringes of the Republican Party” that Dems could not support.

Further, Reid called it “the most irresponsible legislation I have ever seen in my 34 years in Congress.”…

Benghazi Report: Wardrobe Concern Stunted Rescue, Cover-Up Started While Victims Still Alive – The Lid

The official report of the House Select Committee on Benghazi, offered proof of what America already knew about the attack, but more importantly added shocking details about the lack of leadership during that attack which led to the death of two of the four victims, and that the Administration was already working on a cover-up during the attack, when Ambassador Stevens was missing and not yet reported dead, and at least two of the four victims were still on the roof of the compound (Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods) fighting for their lives.

The official 800 page committee report issued Tuesday came just a few hours after a politically motivated report released by the Democrats which referred to Donald Trump more times than two of the Benghazi victims.

While the report does find fault with Clinton and the State Department, it does not focus on her just as committee Chairman Trey Gowdy promised. The report is a chronology of the events of the lead-up to the attack, the attack itself and the aftermath. Additionally, the committee interviewed more than 80 people, and reviewed thousands of pages of new documents not available to any prior investigation.

Along with finding fault in some the State Department and Hillary Clinton’s actions the report criticizes the CIA saying it “missed the looming threat despite warnings and wrote faulty intelligence reports after the attack. The findings will also indicate that the Defense Department did not meet its response times to deploy military assets to Benghazi and follow up to ensure Americans were rescued in a timely fashion.”

It is not surprising that the report says the story the Administration told America, that terrorist attack in Benghazi was incited by a lousy Mohammed video on YouTube, was a fabrication invented by the Obama Administration political team and had nothing to do with the ongoing live reports the state department was getting from Benghazi during the attack…

Open Borders Zealot Zuckerberg Angers Neighbors By Building Massive Wall Around His Home – Doug Ross Journal

For years, Kilauea, Kauai resident Gy Hall has enjoyed the view of the ocean and the breeze along Koolau Road. Then, a few weeks ago, a crew started to build a wall which happens to belong to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.

“The feeling of it is really oppressive. It’s immense,” Hall said. “It’s really sad that somebody would come in, and buy a huge piece of land and the first thing they do is cut off this view that’s been available and appreciative by the community here for years.”

Hall said the wall extends along Koolau Road, near mile marker 20, and is about six-feet tall. He said its projected length and completion are unclear.

Multiple attempts by TGI to contact Shawn Smith, former Falk Partners manager, who Hall says sold some of the $200 million, 700-plus-acre property to the billionaire, were unsuccessful Friday.

Shosana Chantara, a Kilauea resident, voiced her concerns about the breeze that’s being obstructed.

“It’s hot behind that wall. Because it’s up on a berm, there’s not a breath of air on this side from the ocean,” Chantara said. “You take a solid wall that’s 10 or more feet above the road level; the breeze can’t go through.”

Another Kilauea resident, Donna Mcmillen, calls the wall a “monstrosity.”

The island of Kauai is a masterpiece of natural beauty.

That Zuckerberg would both build a security wall and despoil one of the most spectacular islands in the world would shame a normal person, but not – of course – any Democrat…

European Superstate To Be Unveiled: EU Nations ‘To Be Morphed Into One’ Post-Brexit – Daily Express

The foreign ministers of France and Germany are due to reveal a blueprint to effectively do away with individual member states in what is being described as an “ultimatum”.

Under the radical proposals EU countries will lose the right to have their own army, criminal law, taxation system or central bank, with all those powers being transferred to Brussels.

Controversially member states would also lose what few controls they have left over their own borders, including the procedure for admitting and relocating refugees.

The plot has sparked fury and panic in Poland – a traditional ally of Britain in the fight against federalism – after being leaked to Polish news channel TVP Info.

The public broadcaster reports that the bombshell proposal will be presented to a meeting of the Visegrad group of countries – made up of Poland, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia – by German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier later today.

Excerpts of the nine-page report were published today as the leaders of Germany, France and Italy met in Berlin for Brexit crisis talks.

In the preamble to the text the two ministers write: “Our countries share a common destiny and a common set of values that give rise to an even closer union between our citizens. We will therefore strive for a political union in Europe and invite the next Europeans to participate in this venture.”…

A video taken at a transgender pride march in San Francisco shows participants in the march burning an American flag. The video was recorded by Twitter user “Mx Emily A Rose,” who later clarified that she was not an active participant in the burning but simply recorded the act.

Transgender people in the U.S. have many more rights here than they do in many other countries, and are freely able to march and assemble as they did in San Francisco without fear of being put into jail for doing so. Not all LGBT people can say that.

CIA Weapons Shipped To Jordan For Syrian Rebels Stolen, Sold On Black Market – Reuters

Weapons shipped into Jordan for Syrian rebels by the Central Intelligence Agency and Saudi Arabia were stolen by Jordanian intelligence operatives and sold to arms merchants on the black market, the New York Times reported, citing American and Jordanian officials.

Some of the stolen weapons were used in a shooting in November that killed two Americans and three others at a police training facility in Amman, according to a joint investigation by the New York Times and Al Jazeera. (nyti.ms/292MmdH)

A Jordanian officer shot dead two U.S. government security contractors, a South African trainer and two Jordanians at a U.S.-funded police training facility near Amman before being killed in a shootout, Jordanian authorities had said in November.

The training facility was set up on the outskirts of the capital, Amman, after the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq to help rebuild the shattered country’s postwar security forces and to train Palestinian Authority police officers.

The weapons used in the shooting had originally arrived in Jordan for the Syrian rebel training program, the paper reported, citing American and Jordanian officials.

Theft of the weapons, which ended months ago after complaints by the American and Saudi governments, has led to a flood of new weapons available on the arms black market, the New York Times said.

Jordanian officers who were part of the plan “reaped a windfall” from sale of weapons, using the money to buy iPhones, SUVs and other luxury items, according to the paper, which cited Jordanian officials.

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday tossed out former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell’s 11 corruption convictions, narrowing what it called the government’s “boundless” interpretation of federal bribery law.

In so doing, the justices vacated the finding of the Richmond-based 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which had rejected McDonnell’s arguments and upheld the jury convictions.

Illegal Alien Activists Shut Down Atlanta Highway To Stop Deportations – 100PercentFedIp

Once again, the illegal activists have decided to flex muscles and shut down entire highways and streets. do they really think Obama will deport them? Not happening!

Immigrant-rights activists attempted to block the road to federal immigration agents’ headquarters in Atlanta on Monday, demanding President Obama stop deporting any more illegal immigrants after last week’s Supreme Court stalemate.

Led by the Not1More campaign, which webcast the protest, the demonstrators called Mr. Obama to hamstring U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the deportation agency, saying it’s up to the administration to protect illegal immigrants now.

“We are defending the security and stability of our families, sending a direct message to the Obama Administration,” said Carlos Medina, a member of the Georgia Latino Alliance for Human Rights. “We know that he has the ability to stop deportations at any given time. Our fight will not stop.”

The Supreme Court issued a tie ruling last week that left in place a lower court’s injunction blocking Mr. Obama’s broad amnesty program, which would have granted tentative legal status and work permits to as many as 5 million illegal immigrants.

Mr. Obama says his hands are now tied, and he won’t try any more executive actions. But activists say he could do more – including stopping all deportations…

The conservative People’s Party (PP) of acting Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy won most seats in Spain’s parliamentary election on Sunday, increasing the number from the last election in December.

With most votes counted the PP has at least 137 seats in the 350-strong parliament, compared to 123 seats last time, but it is still short of the 176 seats needed for an absolute majority.

Unidos Podemos, (“Together We Can”), a coalition led by anti-austerity party Podemos, was hoping to knock the Socialists into third place but appears to have failed taking only 71 seats. The Socialists won 85.

Iceland’s Stunning Election Of Anti-Establishment Political Novice Should Have Hillary Shaking In Her Pants Suit – 100PercentFedUp

The anti-establishment tide is rolling across Europe. You really can’t blame the citizens for being furious at their leaders for allowing the invasion of Muslim immigrants into their hometowns and major cities. If this sentiment catches fire in America this summer, it will not likely bode well for Crooked Hillary at the polls in November, given that Trump is the ultimate non-establishment politician…

History professor Gudni Johannesson won Iceland’s presidential election after riding a wave of anti-establishment sentiment, final results showed Sunday, although the vote was eclipsed by the country’s eagerly-anticipated Euro football match.

The political newcomer, who won with 39.1 percent of votes, was trailed by businesswoman Halla Tomasdottir, also without party affiliation, who took 29.4 percent, according to results announced on public television channel RUV.

Johannesson only decided to run for the presidency after the so-called Panama Papers leak in April which detailed offshore accounts and implicated several senior Icelandic politicians, including the prime minister who was forced to resign.

Throughout the campaign, Johannesson emphasised his non-partisan vision of the presidency, and vowed to restore faith in the political system after years of public anger toward politicians over scandals and financial woes.

The victory was especially sweet for the history professor and political commentator, who has never held public office and has no party affiliation, as he celebrated his 48th birthday Sunday.

David Oddsson, a former conservative prime minister who had been Johannesson’s closest rival throughout most of the campaign, garnered just 13 percent of votes…

Clinton White House Was Den Of Coke, Mistresses: Ex-Secret Service Officer – New York Post

Gary J. Byrne has devoted his life, and risked it, to serve his country – as a member of the US Air Force, a uniformed White House Secret Service officer, and a federal air marshal.

And he believes it is his patriotic duty to do anything he can to prevent Hillary Clinton from becoming president of the United States.

As someone who guarded the Oval Office during the Clinton presidency, Byrne, in an exclusive interview with The Post, tells how he witnessed “the Clinton machine leaving a wake of destruction in just about everything they do.”

He says he has also seen Hillary’s “dangerous,” abusive, paranoid behavior.

“It’s like hitting yourself with a hammer every day,” says Byrne, pounding a fist into his open hand, of the former First Lady’s explosive anger.

In his new book, “Crisis of Character: A White House Secret Service Officer Discloses His Firsthand Experience with Hillary, Bill, and How They Operate,” out Tuesday, Byrne makes no apologies for his anti-Clinton motivations.

Anti-Gun Senator Arrested With A Loaded Gun – TruthFeed

With all the talk of Gun Control, here is a blast from the past we’ll never forget.

Guess who got arrested Monday night after she refused to get up off the ground out in the middle of the road in front of the Ferguson Police Department?

And not only arrested, but arrested while her breath reportedly reeked of alcohol and she just so happened to be carrying a fully loaded 9mm with extra ammo?

Why none other than Anti-gun Missouri Senator Jamilah Nasheed (D-St. Louis), who has herself sponsored multiple gun control bills.

“Sen. Nasheed, along with another male, entered the street, were told numerous times by not only by the St. Louis County commander, but other officers on scene, that they needed to leave the street or they were subject to arrest,” St. Louis County Police Sgt. Brian Schellman said. “They failed to comply, and they were taken into custody.”

Obama Invites 18.7 Million Immigrants To Avoid Oath Of Allegiance, Pledge To Defend America – Breitbart

It’s not only illegal aliens who are escaping enforcement of the nation’s immigration laws.

Under the Obama administration’s expansive interpretation of executive authority, legal immigrants seeking citizenship through the nation’s Naturalization process are now exempt from a key part of the Oath of Allegiance.

Immigrants seeking to become citizens no longer have to pledge to “bear arms on behalf of the United States.” They can opt out of that part of the Oath. Nor do they have to cite any specific religious belief that forbids them to perform military service.

According to the Naturalization Fact Sheet on the US Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) website, In the fiscal year ending June 30, 2015, the nation welcomed 729,995 Legal Permanent Residents into full citizenship.

* Over the past decade 6.6 million have been naturalized through a process that ends with the Oath of Allegiance.
* In the decade 1980-1990, the average number completing Naturalization was only 220,000 annually, but from 1990 to 2000 that number jumped to over 500,000 annually.
* 1,050,399 new citizens were welcomed in the year 2008.
* 18.7 million immigrants are eligible to eventually become citizens, and 8.8 million already meet the 5-year residency requirement.

The pledge to help defend America was good enough for the 6.6 million immigrants naturalized since 2005 and good enough for the over 15 million naturalized since 1980, but Obama’s appointees at the USCIS think that is too much to ask of the 18.7 million estimated legal immigrants eligible today for eventual naturalization or the 750,000 who will be naturalized in the coming year…

Muslim Child Sex-Assault Suspects Back On Streets Of Idaho – WorldNetDaily

The two Muslim migrant boys from Sudan who were arrested last week on charges of sexually assaulting a 5-year-old girl in Idaho were released into the custody of their parents following a hearing Thursday afternoon, WND has learned.

They were reportedly released from the Snake River Juvenile Detention Center in Twin Falls pending their next hearing.

According to witnesses on the scene, the boys’ families were seen smiling and hugging after the hearing ended shortly before 3 p.m. Thursday.

“They were waving their arms to the heavens, smiling and throwing their arms around each other,” an eyewitness outside the detention center told WND.

The two Sudanese boys, ages 10 and 14, were reportedly ordered by the court to have no contact with the victim, a 5-year-old special-needs girl, whom they allegedly assaulted in the laundry room of their apartment complex on June 2. They were not arrested until late last week. A third boy, age 7, was also involved but was never arrested. The younger boys allegedly urinated on the girl and one of them inappropriately touched her but the extent of that violation is not known. The case has been sealed by the prosecutor, which is standard procedure in juvenile offenses.

The older boy, 14, allegedly filmed the entire incident.

The two older boys are from Sudan and the 7-year-old is from Iraq.

The boys and their families have been evicted from the Fawnbrook Apartments where the incident allegedly took place…

Fear Government: More Armed Bureaucrats Than Marines – Universal Free Press

The Obama government has declared that you are the safer now than you have been at any time. Well that may be his opinion, but a new report shows that due to spending on weapons under his administration, there are now more non-military and non-law enforcement federal government employees who carry guns than there are U.S. Marines. Now I don’t know about you, but that doesn’t make me feel safe.

A taxpayer watchdog group, Open the Books, released a study this week that finds domestic government agencies are continuing to grow their stockpiles of military-style weapons, even as fellow Socialist Democrats sat on the House floor calling for more restrictions on the Second Amendment rights of American citizens. An act that is a blatant attack on the very reason that the Second Amendment was placed into the Bill of Rights in the first place by our founders.

The report, “Militarization of America” found civilian government agencies spent $1.48 billion on guns, ammunition, and military-style equipment between 2006 and 2014. Examples include IRS agents with AR-15s, and EPA bureaucrats wearing camouflage. “Regulatory enforcement within administrative agencies now carries the might of military-style equipment and weapons,” Open the Books said, the very actions our founders warned us about and made it possible to defend against.

“For example, the Food and Drug Administration includes 183 armed ‘special agents,’ a 50 percent increase over the ten years from 1998-2008. At Health and Human Services (HHS), ‘Special Office of Inspector General Agents’ are now trained with sophisticated weaponry by the same contractors who train our military Special Forces troops.”

Open the Books found there are now over 200,000 non-military federal officers with arrest and firearm authority, surpassing the 182,100 personnel who are actively serving in the U.S. Marines Corps…

Belgian Authorities Arrest 12 In Major Anti-Terror Raid – CNS

Belgian authorities have raided dozens of homes and arrested 12 suspects in a major anti-terror investigation which they said required “immediate intervention,” fearing an attack could have been close.

Across Belgium parties were being planned Saturday to watch live broadcasts of the country’s soccer team playing Ireland at the European Championships in neighboring France and some media said such events could have been the targets.

Prime Minister Charles Michel said the nation would remain “extremely vigilant, hour by hour,” but that the terror level across the nation would remain at the second-highest level, meaning a threat of an attack “is possible and likely.” Belgium has been living under such a threat level since the Nov. 22 attacks on the Brussels subway and airport which killed 32.

“It will be the case in the coming hours that we will take additional and adapted measures,” said Michel after a meeting of the nation’s security council. He refused to elaborate on the nature of the threat.

The federal prosecutor’s office said Saturday that homes and car ports were searched in 16 municipalities, mostly in and around Brussels. The statement said there were no major incidents during the raids and that no arms or explosives were found.

It said 40 people were taken for interrogation, of which 12 were arrested, and a judge will rule on their continued detention later Saturday…

I used to wonder why in the heck right-wing commentators on Fox News kept repeating the same mantra over and over again: sitting through the Republican debates, my eyes glazed over when I heard each and every candidate denounce the Obama administration for refusing to say the Sacred Words: “radical Islamic terrorism.” What are these people talking about, I thought to myself: they’re obsessed!

In short, I wrote it off as Fox News boilerplate, until the other day when, in the wake of the Orlando massacre, Donald Trump said the following on Fox: “Something is going on. He doesn’t get it, or he gets it better than anybody understands. It’s one or the other.” Reiterating this trope later on in the same show, he averred that the President “is not tough, not smart – or he’s got something else in mind.”

The Beltway crowd went ballistic. Lindsey Graham had a hissy fit, and other Republican lawmakers started edging away from the presumptive GOP nominee. The Washington Post ran a story with the headline: “Donald Trump Suggests President Obama Was Involved With Orlando Shooting.”…

Illegals Flood Border; Already Worse Than 2015 – Universal Free Press

According to new statistics just released by the Department of Homeland Insecurity, so far this year, the number of illegal alien families invading the United States has is already exceeding the total number for all of 2015. Proving that contrary to the current Democratic administration, the border problems are anything but under control and continue to grow daily.

The new figures say that 6,788 invaders traveling as families were caught on the southwest border in May – a leap of more than 20 percent over April, and putting the total for the first eight months of the fiscal year at nearly 45,000 illegal invaders that have violated our borders.

That number is well in excess of the 2015 yearlong total of less than 40,000, though it is a slight improvement over the record pace set in 2014. At that time, the Obama administration allowed a massive invasion of over 50,000 illegals to flood the border in just one month. That is when Americans really started to understand just how ineffective the Obama administrations program to stop the flood really is.

Since that time, the Federal and local authorities have struggled trying to explain the latest surge in families, rather than figuring out how to stop the flow. In a recent attempt to explain the problem, a government lawyer told a federal judge earlier this month, that the Obama administration’s own lax enforcement policies, set in part by the courts, have enticed ever more people to make the harrowing journey. Something that only a change in administration will be able to fix.

The Justice Department’s immigration-law expert even told the judge that Illegal immigrants are abducting children on their trip north, hoping to pose as families to take advantage of the lax policies…

Doctor Listed On Psych Evaluation Carried Out On Omar Mateen By G4S Says She Never Saw Him And Was Not Living In Florida At The Time It Was Conducted – Daily Mail

A doctor who is listed on the psychological evaluation for Orlando shooter, Omar Mateen, said she did not see him and she was not even living in Florida at the time when G4S security firm ordered the evaluation.

Psychologist, Dr Carol Nudelman, who now lives in Colorado, said in a statement released through her attorneys to the Miami Herald that she never evaluated Mateen nine years ago for G4S, a security firm that was known as Wackenhut at the time.

However, Nudelman’s name appears on the document in Florida’s state records, which cleared Mateen to carry a firearm as a private security guard.

‘That Is Not My Question’: Trey Gowdy Absolutely Grills DHS Official On Second Amendment, Due Process – The Blaze

Last December, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) pressed a Department of Homeland Security official about about the idea that American citizens on the terrorist watchlist should be denied the right to own a gun. In light of the recent terrorist attack in Orlando, Gowdy re-posted the video of his back-and-forth with DHS Deputy Assistant Secretary, Kelli Ann Burriesci, to his personal Facebook page.

To combat the common liberal call for gun control that follows terror attacks, Gowdy reminded a confused Burriesci that the right of every U.S. citizen to own a firearm is is affirmed in the Constitution, and that there’s a certain “process” that takes place before that right is stripped.

“What process is currently afforded an American citizen before they go on that list?” Gowdy said.

Burriesci denied that such a process exists. She casually added, however, that those who “feel that they are unduly placed on that list” can just “petition the government” to be removed.

“Yes, there is,” Gowdy contended. “When I say ‘process,’ I’m actually using half of the term ‘due process,’ which is a phrase we find in the Constitution.”

“Can you name another constitutional right that is chilled until you find out it is chilled, and then you have to petition the government to get it back?” he continued.

“Sir, there are strict criteria before anybody…“ Burriesci began.

“That is not my question,” Gowdy interjected. “My question is what process is afforded a United States citizen before that person’s constitutional right is infringed?”…

Illegal Immigrant Charged With Murder In California Fire Had Prior Arrests, Was Never Deported – Fox News

The suspect charged with murder in connection with a vacant building fire in Los Angeles was in the United States illegally and had a string of arrests to his name – but the feds never deported him, officials said Friday.

Johnny Sanchez, a 21-year-old citizen of Honduras, was initially arrested in 2012 for crossing the southeastern California border illegally, the Los Angeles Times reported. Authorities said they released him because he had no criminal history or previous immigration violations at the time.

He was arrested again in January on suspicion of domestic violence and twice in the ensuing months on suspicion of drug possession, officials said.

After he crossed the border, authorities reportedly placed him under supervision and ordered Sanchez to report to them regularly – but he stopped doing so in 2014, the Times adds.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement never started the process of deporting him, spokeswoman Virginia Kice said, adding that the reason why was unclear. She told the newspaper it’s ICE policy “to focus on individuals who pose a public safety threat.”

The fire on Monday killed five homeless people. Four of the badly burned bodies weren’t found until Tuesday afternoon, when search dogs located them under a heap of debris on the second floor…

Egypt’s Ex-President Mursi Gets Life Sentence In Qatar Spy Case – NewsMax

Egypt’s former President Mohamed Mursi was jailed for life, while six people, including two Al-Jazeera staff members, had death sentences affirmed by a Cairo criminal court in a case linked to passing state secrets to Qatar.

The death sentences had been referred to the Grand Mufti, the government’s top religious official, for ratification. Mursi and two others who served in the government during his one-year presidency were given the standard life sentence. The verdicts can be appealed.

The judge, Mohamed Fahmy, said religious authorities who reviewed the case found that what the defendants had “surpassed espionage,” because what they accomplished no spy could have done.

The two Jazeera journalists were identified as Alaa Omar Mohamed and Ibrahim Mohamed Helal. They were tried in absentia.

Egyptian officials have claimed the Qatar-based satellite channel is sympathetic to the Muslim Brotherhood, a movement that fielded Mursi for office and was branded a terrorist organization after his July 2013 ouster.

Mursi, who was pushed from power in a military-backed popular uprising, has already been sentenced to death in connection with a prison breakout at the time of the 2011 uprising against his predecessor, Hosni Mubarak. He has also been sentenced to life in prison in connection with another espionage case tied to the Palestinian Hamas movement…

Violent Gitmo Prisoner Obama Released Is Missing; Search Begins – Right Wing News

As his last few years in office begin winding down, President Obama has been speeding to release as many dangerous terrorists from the Guantanamo Bay detention facility as he can before he has to exit the White House. Now we’ve discovered that one of those terrorists is missing.

Conservatives have been warning of Obama’s efforts to return terrorists to the battlefields of the Middle East since day one, but neither the left nor the media have paid any attention.

Now the Washington Post is reporting that one of Obama’s terror pals has disappeared after being released.

A former Guantanamo Bay prisoner transferred to Uruguay in 2014 has vanished and is believed to have left the country under uncertain circumstances, U.S. officials said.

Law enforcement is now searching for the former detainee, Syrian national Jihad Ahmed Mustafa Dhiab, in Brazil, a U.S. official said.

“We are coordinating with officials in Brazil and Uruguay to determine his whereabouts,” the official said, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss a sensitive incident.

While the Obama administration declined to comment publicly about the case, officials believe that Dhiab may have crossed into Brazil without documents that would allow him to enter that country legally…

The EU Wants To Impose A Tax For Sharing Links On The Internet – Zero Hedge

No wonder the people of Great Britain are itching to rid themselves of this miserable, idiotic union.

TechDirt reports:

We’ve written plenty of times about ridiculous European plans to create a so-called “snippet tax” which is more officially referred to as “ancillary rights” (and is really just about creating a tax on Google).

The basic concept is that some old school newspapers are so lazy and have so failed to adapt to the internet – and so want to blame Google for their own failures – that they want to tax any aggregator (e.g., Google) that links to their works with a snippet, that doesn’t pay for the privilege of sending those publishers traffic.

As you may remember, Germany has been pushing for such a thing for many, many years, and Austria has been exploring it as well. But perhaps the most attention grabbing move was the one in Spain, which not only included a snippet tax, but made it mandatory. That is, even if you wanted Google News to link to you for free, you couldn’t get that. In response, Google took the nuclear option and shut down Google News in Spain. A study showed that this law has actually done much to harm Spanish publishers, but the EU pushes on, ridiculously.

As discussed a year ago, some in the EU Commission are all for creating an EU-wide snippet tax, and as ridiculous and counterproductive as that is, the Commission is about to make a decision on it, and the public consultation on the issue is about to close (it ends tomorrow)…

Sanders: Don’t Blame Islam For Orlando Shooting – The Hill

Bernie Sanders on Tuesday lashed out at those who blame Islam for the shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando.

“Was he motivated by the ideology of some fanatic Islamic organization which believes it is somehow heroic to mow down innocent and defenseless men and women?” Sanders asked.

“Was he motivated by homophobia and hatred of the gay community? Was he motivated by some kind of hatred of Latinos? Was he suicidal and wanted to end his life by taking others with him? We may never know the answer to those questions.”

Sanders noted that the attacker was one person, not an entire people or a religion.

“The Muslim people did not commit this act. A man named Omar Mateen did. To blame an entire religion for the acts of a single individual is nothing less than bigotry, and that is not what this country is supposed to be about.”…

Wikileaks Will Publish ‘Enough Evidence’ To Indict Hillary Clinton, Warns Assange – Russia Today

Wikileaks co-founder Julian Assange warns more information will be published about Hillary Clinton, enough to indict her if the US government is courageous enough to do so, in what he predicts will be “a very big year” for the whistleblowing website.

Expressing concerns in an ITV interview about the Democratic presidential candidate, who he claims is monitoring him, Assange described Republican presumptive nominee Donald Trump as an “unpredictable phenomenon”, but predictably, given their divergent political views, didn’t say if he preferred the billionaire to be president.

He was not asked if he supported Green Party candidate Jill Stein, even though she said she would immediately pardon Wikileaks whistleblower Chelsea Manning if elected.

“We have emails relating to Hillary Clinton which are pending publication,” Assange told Peston on Sunday when asked if more of her leaked electronic communications would be published.

About 32,000 emails from her private server have been leaked by Wikileaks so far, but Assange would not confirm the number of emails or when they are expected to be published.

Omar Mateen Pledged Allegiance To ISIS, Official Says – CNN

The gunman who killed 50 people at an Orlando nightclub pledged allegiance to ISIS and mentioned the Boston bombing in a 911 call, according to a U.S. official.

Suspect Omar Mateen made the call more than 20 minutes into the attack, a law enforcement official said.

Authorities haven’t officially released the gunman’s name, but several law enforcement officials have identified him to CNN as Mateen.

The 29-year-old, who was killed by police, is from Fort Pierce, Florida, the officials said.

Local and federal bomb squad teams entered Mateen’s apartment there Sunday afternoon as authorities tried to piece together details about the attack. Investigators haven’t revealed what they found there.

Another Planned Attack? Suspect With Explosives, Camo Outfit, Assault Weapons Arrested In West Hollywood – Zero Hedge

While initial reports are scarce and there is no confirmation yet, moments ago a ProPublica reporter wrote that according to LA law enforcement, a suspect dressed in a camouflage outfit and wearing a security badge, transporting explosives and assault weapons, was arrested in West Hollywood, a popular neighborhood among the Los Angeles gay community, just as the local gay pride Parade was set to begin.

As a reminder, tens of thousands of people were expected to flood West Hollywood on Sunday for the annual L.A. Pride Parade. The festival celebrating the region’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community kicked off Friday with a musical lineup that features more than 40 artists, headlined by pop stars Charli XCX and Carly Rae Jepsen. Held in West Hollywood Park, festival hours are 2 p.m. to 1 a.m. on Saturday and noon to 11 p.m. on Sunday.

If confirmed, this may suggest some coordination in attacks targeting gay events across the US.

Update from the LA Times:

Authorities in Santa Monica found possible explosives as well as assault rifles and ammunition in the car of a man who told them he was in town for the L.A. Pride festival in West Hollywood, a law enforcement source said.

Early Sunday, there was a call to Santa Monica police of a suspected prowler near Olympic Boulevard and 11th Street. Patrol officers responded and encountered an individual who told officers he was waiting for a friend.

Muslim Mass Murderer Omar Mateen Had Been Investigated By FBI, Tied To Islamic Terror Groups – Pamela Gellar

The jihadi who slaughtered at least 50 at a gay nightclub in Florida last night was known to law enforcement. More of their “Muslim outreach,” I’m sure.

“Omar Mateen, Terrorist Who Attacked Orlando Gay Club, Had Been Investigated by FBI,” Daily Beast:

Mateen was a ‘known quantity’ to federal law enforcement before he killed 53 people in the worst mass shooting in U.S. history.

Mateen came to the attention of federal authorities twice prior to being identified as the gunman in the Orlando nightclub mass shooting, a senior law enforcement source told The Daily Beast.

Approximately 20 people are dead inside Pulse, a gay nightclub, Orlando Police Chief John Mina said Sunday morning, just hours after a shooter opened fire in the club. At least 42 people have been transported for medical treatment, he said.

Police have shot and killed the gunman, Mina told reporters.
“It’s appears he was organized and well-prepared,” the chief said, adding that the shooter had an assault-type weapon, a handgun and “some type of (other) device on him.” Law enforcement sources told CNN that the device, which was strapped to the suspect, was possibly explosive, but authorities don’t know if it was real or not.

Migrants Burn Down Asylum Centre After Not Receiving Ramadan Wake Up Call – Breitbart
.

.
A massive fire at Düsseldorf’s major international trade fair grounds yesterday has been followed by reports that the blaze was set deliberately by migrants who were angry because of Ramadan.

Officially, some 160 migrants were resident at hall 18 of the Messe Düsseldorf conference centre, but it was a facility plagued by racial conflict which had seen violence spark before. Düsseldorf’s Express newspaper reports these conflicts were not between European German staff and their guests, but between the predominantly Arab residents, and a minority of Afghans who sided with the security staff running the facility – who were mainly Iranian.

According to the testimony of “several burly Moroccan refugees” which the paper had spoken to even as the hall burnt down, the Iranians employed by the German state to look after other migrants from around the world had “deliberately” not woken the Arabs up in time for their Ramadan breakfast following a long run dispute.

Just three weeks ago there had been another, much smaller fire at the exhibition centre as a migrant set fire to his mattress in protest against the accommodation…

D.C. Passes $15 Minimum Wage – Washington Free Beacon

The Washington, D.C., City Council passed a measure to raise the minimum wage to $15 for hourly employees on Tuesday and increased the tipped wage to $5 an hour.

The Democrat-controlled council unanimously voted to hike the district’s hourly minimum wage from $10.50 to $15 an hour, a 43 percent increase. The council took up the matter as union-backed groups campaigned to put a $15 wage on the November ballot.

That measure would have forced all employees, including tipped workers, to receive an hourly rate more than twice as high as the federal minimum of $7.25. Mayor Muriel Bowser brought the $15 wage to the council in March.

Michael Saltsman, research director of the free market Employment Policies Institute, called the measure the latest in the “fight against common sense.” California struck a deal to enact a $15 minimum wage by 2022 in March after labor activists petitioned to put the proposal on the November ballot. Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo passed similar legislation in April.

Saltsman said the nearly 50 percent wage hike would force businesses to cut hours, stop hiring, and raise prices on consumers to make up for higher labor costs.

“Unfortunately, it’s employees and small businesses who will pay the tab,” Saltsman said.

The bill could have gone further, as activists waged a months-long campaign to include tipped employees, such as restaurant wait staff, for the wage. Federal law mandates a $7.25 wage rate for regular workers, but employers only need to pay tipped workers $2.15 per hour…

Feds Spend Nearly $20,000 To Settle Every Refugee – Washington Examiner

Federal taxpayers are on the hook for nearly $20,000 just to settle each refugee and asylum seeker, who are then immediately eligible for cash welfare, food stamps, housing and medical aid, according to a new report on the “refugee industry.”

The report provided federal budget figures showing that the government spends $19,884 on each refugee the U.S. takes in.

And that number is set to jump if President Obama gets his way and brings in an additional 10,000 Syrian refugees in this year.

The report from the Negative Population Growth Inc. said that the U.S. is currently accepting about 95,000 refugees and asylees. That is in addition to the over 500,000 legal and illegal immigrants coming to the U.S.

It focused on the industry created to accept the $1.8 billion in federal support to help refugees settle and sign up for further cash awards from Uncle Sam. The refugee agencies get a small portion, or about $1,875 per refugee they help. The rest goes to the United Nations, which helps to determine eligible refugees, and state agencies.

The State Department spends about $1.28 billion, and Health and Human Services another $609 million…

As Hunger Mounts, Venezuelans Turn To Trash For Food – Associated Press
.

.
Until recently, Julio Noguera worked at a bakery. Now he spends his evenings searching through the garbage for food.

“I come here looking for food because if I didn’t, I’d starve to death,” Noguera said as he sorted through a pile of moldy potatoes. “With things like they are, no one helps anyone and no one gives away meals.”

Across town, unemployed people converge every dusk at a trash heap on a downtown Caracas sidewalk to pick through rotten fruit and vegetables tossed out by nearby shops. They are frequently joined by small business owners, college students and pensioners – people who consider themselves middle class even though their living standards have long ago been pulverized by triple-digit inflation, food shortages and a collapsing currency.

Venezuela’s poverty had eased during the administration of the late President Hugo Chavez. But a study by three leading Caracas universities found that 76 percent of Venezuelans are now under the poverty line, compared with 52 percent in 2014…

Migrants In Germany Linked To 69,000 Committed Or Attempted Crimes In Early – Pajamas Media

Migrants in Germany committed or tried to commit some 69,000 crimes in the first quarter of 2016, according to a police report that could raise unease, especially among anti-immigrant groups, about Chancellor Angela Merkel’s liberal migrant policy.

There was a record influx of more than a million migrants into Germany last year and concerns are now widespread about how Europe’s largest economy will manage to integrate them and ensure security.

The report from the BKA federal police showed that migrants from northern Africa, Georgia and Serbia were disproportionately represented among the suspects.

Absolute numbers of crimes committed by Syrians, Afghans and Iraqis – the three biggest groups of asylum seekers in Germany – were high but given the proportion of migrants that they account for, their involvement in crimes was “clearly disproportionately low”, the report said.

See? It’s OK because it is “disproportionately low.” So if you were beaten, sexually assaulted or “unlawfully detained” by someone who probably shouldn’t have been there in the first place you can take great comfort in the fact that there were a whole lot more who could have beaten, sexually assaulted or kidnapped you.

To this day, however, if you suggest that the United States might want to work out a functional screening system for this jihadist exportation migrant crisis, you’re accused of being Islamophobic, racist, and not really American because, hey, Irish people in Boston or something…

Mitch McConnell Complains About ‘Unreasonable’ Conservatives, Points Blame At Talk Radio – Daily Signal

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell takes pride in his reputation as a great compromiser. But the Republican leader won’t concede on one point: He refuses to let conservatives fight the White House for lower spending levels.

McConnell, R-Ky., outlined his political roadmap for government spending on Tuesday, sketching out the routes he sees available: an omnibus package, individual appropriations bills, or a government shutdown.

“Here’s the choice: You either pass each individual appropriations bill or you pass the omnibus, which gives the president all the power, and the ability, to argue that somehow we’re shutting down the government if we don’t go along with it,” McConnell told an audience at the American Enterprise Institute…

State Dept. Claims It Would Take 75 Years To Compile Clinton Emails – Breitbart

The State Department claims it would take 75 years to compile the 450,000 pages of emails between Hillary Clinton and her top aides, meaning it will be able to satisfy two Freedom of Information Act lawsuits from the Republican National Committee no later than 2091.

“Given the Department’s current [Freedom of Information Act] workload and the complexity of these documents, it can process about 500 pages a month, meaning it would take approximately 16-and-2/3 years to complete the review of the Mills documents, 33-and-1/3 years to finish the review of the Sullivan documents, and 25 years to wrap up the review of the Kennedy documents – or 75 years in total,” said a filing from the State Department to the FOIA court, as related by The Hill.

“The volume of FOIA requests received by the Department has tripled since 2008,” complained State Dept. spokeswoman Elizabeth Trudeau. “In fiscal year 2015 alone we received approximately 22,000 FOIA requests. The requests are also frequently more complex and seek larger volumes of documents, requiring significantly more time, resources, and interagency coordination. While we have increased staffing for our FOIA office, our available resources are still nonetheless constrained.”

“That is an incredible number,” another State Department spokesman, Mark Toner, conceded to the Washington Examiner. “It’s a very broad range involving a number of people over a period of four years, and it’s not an outlandish estimation, believe it or not.”

This should conclusively refute the State Department Inspector General’s accusation that the department constantly provides slow, inaccurate, and incomplete responses to FOIA requests – delays that always seem to have the magical result of producing vital information after the November elections. We’ll have this trove of Clinton correspondence in hand with plenty of time to go before the 2092 elections…

Gowdy Releases Bombshell Report Proving Dem Insiders Obstructed Benghazi Investigation – AFF

Democrat members of the House Benghazi Select Committee have done everything humanly possible to sabotage the efforts to get to the truth about what really happened that tragic night when 4 Americans senselessly lost their lives in Libya on September 11, 2012.

In the letter, Gowdy wrote, “Despite your efforts to undermine and obstruct our fact-centered work, rest assured all members of the committee will have the opportunity to review the report and offer changes in a manner consistent with the rules of the House. Then, after the committee completes its work, the American people will be able to read the report, the supporting evidence and transcripts, and judge for themselves the value and fairness of our investigation.”.

Woman Goes Berzerk When Store Declines Her Food Stamps – Daily Caller

A large woman destroyed a convenience store after having her food stamp benefits card declined, according to a video uploaded to Live Leak Thursday.

“Call the police, call the police,” the unnamed woman says repeatedly in the video as she lumbers around the store causing havoc. “Call the police. Do your job, do your job.”

The woman had already knocked some food on the floor before one patron decided to start filming the incident. She appears belligerent as she repeats inaudible and barely audible statements. The woman walks with a limp from an apparent injury as she threw food around. She even throws an empty container of Cheetos at a man who tried to calm her down.

A small crowd slowly gathered around her but were unable to stop the rampage. She lunges at some candy and snacks, before a store worker manages to grab her. The worker gets her outside the store with the help of some patrons. The video ends by showing the floor covered in candy and snacks.

The unnamed woman began destroying the convenience store after her Electronic Benefits Transfer card was declined. The cards are the main way food stamp recipients are able to access their benefits. They work like a personal debit cards, except they can only be used to purchased authorized items like food and basic necessities.

The food stamp program is the largest food assistance welfare service in the country. The Department of Agriculture (USDA) administers the program in coordination with state agencies…

‘Hillary Clinton Has To Go To Jail’: Donald Trump Goes Into Full Attack Mode After Clinton’s Scorching Speech – Business Insider

Donald Trump hit back at Hillary Clinton at a rally in San Jose Thursday evening, declaring that the Democratic frontrunner “has to go to jail” and is “guilty as hell.”

“Hillary Clinton has to go to jail. Alright I said it. She has to go to jail,” he said.

“The fact that they even allow her to participate in this race is a disgrace to the United States, is a disgrace to our nation.”

Trump’s shots at Clinton came after a fiery foreign policy speech she gave earlier the same day, during which she denounced Trump’s policy proposals as “as a series of bizarre rants, personal feuds, and outright lies” and declared that electing him would be a “historic mistake.”

While Trump didn’t go into detail about the arguments Clinton made in her speech, he called it “phony” and a “Donald Trump hit job,” and lambasted her for her ongoing email scandal.

He also suggested Clinton only supports President Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran because she’s worried about facing jail time.

He said he’s confident the FBI will indict her, and said if he wins the presidency, his attorney general will “take a very good look into it.”

“The only reason she’s behaving like this, and the only reason she’s been dragged so far left, believe me, is she doesn’t want to go to jail over the emails.”…

Anti-Trump Protesters Riot In The Streets Of San Jose – Daily Wire

I’ve never seen anything like that in America before,” said one man who witnessed the violent mob of Donald Trump protesters who assaulted his supporters and San Jose police officers, throwing eggs, bottles, and punches, vandalizing vehicles and lighting stolen property on fire. Following the chaos, San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo, a Hillary Clinton supporter, excused the rioters, blaming Trump for the violence.

Despite the mainstream media’s desperate hope to somehow spin or downplay the appalling violence carried out by anti-Trump thugs in San Jose Thursday, there’s simply no way to mask the outrageous actions of the Leftist mob, which included protesters burning Americans flags, chanting “Make California Mexico Again,” covering their faces with bandanas to hide their identities, and throwing up gang signs as they terrorized Trump supporters, destroyed private property, and wreaked havoc.

“The protesters chased and taunted Trump’s supporters outside the San Jose Convention Center. They surrounded one woman and threw eggs and bottles at her,” reports NBC Los Angeles. One rally attendee, Steve Tong, described the scene as “unbelievable,” adding that he’d “never seen anything like that in America before.”…

10-Year-Old Raped By Refugee Asks Liberal For Help, Their Response Is Worse – Mad World News

A little girl was lured into a migrant man’s room at an asylum center and brutally raped while her screams for help went ignored. When he was finished, she ran to the liberal worker and told them what had happened. However, instead of calling the police and helping the injured and traumatized child, they had just one concern.

In an effort to expose the sickening leftist agenda behind the Swedish Migration Board, TV4 introduced a segment called Cold Facts, which highlights the levels of depravity leftists will stoop in order to salvage their failed policies. Understanding the corruption and scandal that takes place in the immigration offices and asylum centers, even the investigative reporters were shocked by a little girl’s horrific testimony.

Fria Tider reports that while many women and children have been brutally assaulted during their stay in asylum centers, one brave little girl’s harrowing story gives a much-needed look into the ugly side of the refugee crisis. The child’s words prove not only the inhumanity within the refugee centers but that it’s also being perpetuated by the leftists in charge.

“I was scared. I screamed but no one was there. It felt like he was going to take me again and do the same. I think about it every night. I think of what he did to me,” says the girl in the program.

When the child went to center workers for help, they refused to report the rape and attempted to cover it up instead. Several other women and children came forward with complaints that the Swedish Migration Board has ignored their abuse reports and even worked with asylum centers to hide assault, sexual assault, and child molestation. In fact, one employee was caught waving off an attempted rape in the center as “small stuff.”…

Obama Taps Yet Another Muslim Brotherhood-Linked Official To Prominent WH Role – Truth Revolt

For nearly eight years, President Obama has appointed a range of Muslim officials with terror-links to influential positions within the administration. The latest in a long line is Zaki Barzinji, whom Obama just tapped as the new associate director of public engagement for the White House.

The Clarion Project notes that Barzinji worked for the Islamic Society of North American (ISNA), an organization targeted by the U.S. Justice Department as a Muslim Brotherhood affiliate and was named an unindicted co-conspirator in a major Hamas-funding trial.

Oh, and Barzinji’s grandfather was also a Muslim Brotherhood terror suspect.

Oh, and according to Clarion Project, Barzinji previously served as the deputy director of intergovernmental affairs for Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, who is currently under investigation for “possible political corruption.”

​Of the Obama appointee’s grandfather, Clarion notes that Jamal Barzinji, deceased as of last year, “was a founder and/or senior official in virtually every group identified as a Muslim Brotherhood front in America.”

Mysteriously, the Obama Justice Department dropped a planned indictment of the elder Barzinji and in 2013, Zaki accepted an award on his grandfather’s behalf at “the Hamas/Brotherhood-linked Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center in Virginia, which the late Barzinji helped found.”…

DOJ Defies Federal Judge To Protect White House’s Amnesty – Daily Caller

The U.S. Department of Justice is refusing an order from a federal judge to release details of benefits provided to over 100,000 illegal immigrants under President Barack Obama’s executive action on immigration.

U.S. District Court Judge Andrew S. Hanen ordered the Justice Department to produce a list of individuals who received deportation deferrals from the 2014 DHS directive in a decision made May 19. The decision was made after learning DoJ had not disclosed that approximately 100,000 illegal immigrants had received three-year deferrals from deportation between November 20, 2014 and March 3, 2015. The Justice Department urged Hanen to stay his order in a brief released late Tuesday.

The 2014 DHS directive expanded a program that allowed individuals who immigrated illegally to the United States as children to obtain work permits and renewable two-year deferrals from deportation. The 2014 directive expanded this program, allowing the parents of such individuals to obtain work permits. It also increased the deferral period from two years to three.

Judge Hanen says the Justice Department assured him the 2014 program would not be implemented until February 2015, affording him time to evaluate the case. However, the federal government began issuing deferrals months earlier, in November 2014.

“They knowingly continued to hide this conduct for months and only admitted it once they realized the number of violations exceeded 100,000,” Judge Hanen wrote in his order. He also ordered Justice Department attorneys to attend a legal ethics course…

White House Secretly Squashed IRS Resistance To ObamaCare’s Illegal Subsidies – Breitbart

The New York Times reports on a secret meeting from 2014, exposed thanks to sworn testimony before the House Ways and Means Committee, at which a vanload of IRS officials were told to stifle their complaints about billions of dollars in flagrantly illegal ObamaCare funding.

Upon arrival, the I.R.S. officials, some of whom had expressed doubts that the Obama administration had the proper authority to spend billions of dollars on a crucial element of its [Obamacare] health care law, were ushered into a conference room.

There, they were presented with an Office of Management and Budget memo laying out the administration’s justification for spending $3.9 billion on consumer health insurance subsidies. They were told they could read it but could not take notes or make copies.

The O.M.B. officials left the room to allow their visitors a moment to absorb the document, and then returned to answer a few questions and note that Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. had been briefed and signed off on the legal rationale.

Trump Hatin’ “Mexican Judge” Awarded Scholarships To Illegal Immigrants – GotNews

Trump University Lawsuit Brought By Firm Who Paid $675,000 To Bill And Hillary Clinton – Conservative Treehouse

Research by Lawnewz has discovered the legal firm behind the Trump civil action lawsuit paid Bill and Hillary Clinton massive amounts of money for speeches and advocacy during and after Hillary Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State:

Donald Trump has undoubtedly made the class action lawsuit against Trump University a prime campaign issue. For the last several days, he has been on a tear against federal Judge Gonzolo Curiel who is overseeing one of the class action lawsuits against Trump University. In the lawsuit, former students claim that the University and Trump violated federal law by luring them to sign up with false promises and then defrauded them once they handed over their checks.

LawNewz.com discovered that when it comes to politics, Robbins Gellar Rudman & Dowd, the law firm behind the class action lawsuit, is not exactly neutral either. Our analysis, using data compiled by The Washington Post, found that Robbins Gellar Rudman & Dowd paid the Clintons a total of $675,000 in fees for speeches since 2009. Hillary Clinton gave a speech for the law firm as recently as September 4, 2014.

Bill Clinton also gave a speech for the same fee back in 2014, and another one in 2009 before the firm had been renamed (they used to be called Coughlin Stoia Geller Rudman & Robbins LLP). In fact, of the five law firms that paid for Clintons to speak in the last few years, Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd paid out the most money.

Pro-Refugee Activist Takes In Afghan Refugee And Then This Horror Happens – 100PercentFedUp

Americans should take notes on what’s happening in Europe because it’s heading our way soon if we don’t act now. In Germany, bleeding heart liberals are being raped and robbed by the economic opportunists and thugs coming to get all the freebies that Germany offers. Germany is known for its great benefits as is America. Because of this, America has become a global magnet for economic opportunists who aren’t true refugees. You should remember that YOU are paying for this which is why many of our mayors, governors and city council members across America are very secretive about refugee resettlement. Ask questions and shine a light on refugee resettlement!

One of the most curious facts about American refugees who’ve come this year is that only 1% are Christian and the other 99% are Muslim.

A 26-year-old Afghan man was last Thursday sentenced to two and a half years in prison for rape. The sentence was given by the court in Cologne, writes the local news outlet Kölner Rundschau.

The news outlet describes how the victim, a 20-year-old woman, had let the Afghan refugee stay with her in her apartment.

The Afghan man came to Germany two years ago, and the contact with the woman came through internet, in the group ‘Flüchtlinge Wilkommen’ (Refugees Welcome).

The rape happened during the night of October 25 last year, when the man sneaked into the 20-year-old woman’s room while she was sleeping.

The woman eventually managed to flee, and then ran into another room in the apartment, where her brother lives…

Quran Scholar: Martyrs Get Raisins, Not Virgins – WorldNetDaily

Note to jihadists: It’s raisins you’ll get in heaven for acts of martyrdom – not virgins. That’s according to at least one scholar who studied the Quran’s original text and found the word that’s been commonly translated to mean “virgin” in times of late actually means “raisin.”

The revelation came to light during a recent showing of CNN’s “Why They Hate Us” special with host Fareed Zakaria aimed at trying to discern just why radical Islamists seek to bomb, kill and destroy those in the West, including Americans.

As CNN’s blogged promo of the show stated: “‘Why do they hate us?’ [This] has been the question asked since the 9/11 attacks 15 years ago – and again in the wake of terrorist attacks in Boston, Brussels, Beirut, Paris, Mumbai, [Fort] Hood, San Bernardino, and beyond. CNN’s Fareed Zakaria explores what is fueling the rage – and challenges intelligence experts, religious scholars, policy influencers, and even the very men who want o kill us – for answers to whether America and the rest of the West can do anything to stop the bloodshed.”

The ‘Stop Hillary’ campaign is on fire! Join the surging response to this theme: ‘Clinton for prosecution, not president’

A Twitchy review of the broadcast found Zakaria furthered a more moderate view of Islam, one that put forth the view that terrorists hate “all things modern,” rather than just Israel, the West and America.

But one surprising element to emerge: A Canadian author and scholar named Irshad Manji broke commonly held ranks to say Islamists might want to double check the truthfulness of their supposed receipt of 72 virgins in heaven for acts of martyrdom. The word “virgin” in the Quran actually means “raisin,” he said…

White McDonald’s Manager Doused With Gasoline By Black Man At Drive Thru – Inquisitr

A McDonald’s employee in Elkhart, Indiana, was the victim of a cruel prank when an unidentified black male threw a cup of gasoline in her face while advancing through the drive thru.

The assailants recorded the incident on their cellular phones and uploaded it to social media. The video was quickly removed, as it may be linked to a hate crime, but ABC 57 News was able to obtain the video before it was removed.

The victim is Kayla Prater, of Elkhart, and works at the McDonald’s location as a manager. The incident happened around 1:30 a.m. on Friday, May 2o. It seemed like any other late night at the location that she manages when the car of three black males pulled into the drive thru and placed their order. As many late night customers are, the three males were a bit rambunctious inside the car. However, as the car started to drive away, the black male in the back seat revealed a 7-11 cup full of gasoline and tossed it into the window, where it doused Prater.

CBS 58 revealed that Prater believes the attack was random, and she just happened to be the victim of the night. She does not believe it was a race-related crime, but will not completely rule it out.

Prater was shocked and surprised that the gasoline was thrown in her face. She was unsure happened at first, but felt the burning as soon as the liquid hit her. She did not know if it was gasoline, acid, or some other substance…

Katie Couric Cooks The Facts, Burns Her Reputation – Washington Examiner

“If there are no background checks for gun purchasers, how do you prevent felons or terrorists from purchasing a gun?”

In “Under the Gun,” her new documentary film on gun violence, Yahoo’s Katie Couric poses this reasonable question to a members of a gun rights organization known as the Virginia Citizens Defense League.

And in the movie, they seem to react with an awkward silence lasting eight seconds. They look clueless about how to answer the most basic and obvious inquiry. The viewer is led to conclude that these people not only hold indefensible views, but cannot even make an attempt to defend them.

Thanks to a complete audio recording, however, we know that this depiction is a lie. When asked the question about background checks, members of the group launched without hesitation into their answers.

One of them discussed due process rights. Another brought up the numerous laws that already limit gun ownership. A third talked about the practical problems of relying on law to prevent crime in advance, as opposed to punishing it after the fact. At no point was there a pause longer than a second.

Swift and reasonable answers were, however, not what Couric needed. To make her case for more gun regulation she decided to transition from journalism to falsification and propaganda. Instead of showing the interview question and answer as they actually happened, she edited in an eight-second clip of the group sitting silently and slightly uncomfortably waiting to be interviewed…

Gorilla Shot: Angry Blacks Claim White Privilege, Turns Out The Boy Is Black – The Examiner
.

Reporter James Delingpole of the British edition of the Breitbart.com news portal notes on 30 May, 2016, that there is quite an outrage brewing on social media concerning the shooting of Harambe the gorilla at the Cincinnati Zoo. As it turns out while enjoying a week-end visit to the local menagerie, 4-year-old Isaiah managed to slip away for his mother, Michelle Gregg, which resulted in a series of terrifying events that led to Harambe being shot to death by local officials.

As it turns out, prior to Isaiah’s name finally bubbling to the surface, he was simply known on social media simply as “gorilla boy.” However, young Isaiah’s mother went by a number of very different names, none of them complimentary or print-worthy.

As Delingpole cites, a number of individuals have taken to Twitter claiming the shooting of Harambe to ostensibly save the life of Isaiah was yet another example what some have labeled “white privilege.” Examples of the outraged include the following:

Isa Ibn ‎@IsaIbnOfficial – That gorilla was taken from it’s homeland, put in captivity, and then killed to preserve White life. That sounds familiar…

The Superbug That Doctors Have Been Dreading Just Reached The U.S. – Washington Post

For the first time, researchers have found a person in the United States carrying bacteria resistant to antibiotics of last resort, an alarming development that the top U.S. public health official says could mean “the end of the road” for antibiotics.

The antibiotic-resistant strain was found last month in the urine of a 49-year-old Pennsylvania woman. Defense Department researchers determined that she carried a strain of E. coli resistant to the antibiotic colistin, according to a study published Thursday in Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy, a publication of the American Society for Microbiology. The authors wrote that the discovery “heralds the emergence of a truly pan-drug resistant bacteria.”

Colistin is the antibiotic of last resort for particularly dangerous types of superbugs, including a family of bacteria known as CRE, which health officials have dubbed “nightmare bacteria.”…

Finland Defies Outraged Liberals And EU, Slams Muslim Migrants In Massive Way – Mad World News

With the colossal influx of asylum seekers from Islamic countries flooding the West, Europe has seen a rise in rape, murder, and Sharia enforcement. In an applause-worthy move to not turn out like neighboring countries, Finland has shunned the leftist agenda, implementing a monumental change over the refugee population – and liberals and Muslim migrants could not be more outraged.

In a bid to preserve their culture and freedom, as well as national security and economic stability, Finland has defied the European Union’s strongarming of countries in the refugee crisis. The EU has bullied many nations into taking in more asylum seekers than previously agreed upon, all while refusing to place a cap on the number of applications to be approved. However, Finland is having a David and Goliath moment by standing up to the dictatorial union in a way that could save it from becoming the next rape capital of the world like neighboring Sweden.

Finland has officially announced that it will not only close its borders to asylum seekers from countries it considers not dangerous, it will also be sending back refugees it’s taken in from those same Islamic nations. Formally approved refugees from countries including Somalia, Afghanistan, Iraq, and other parts of the Middle East will begin their deportation process, since these nations are not considered war zones, according to Speisa.

Finland is looking for ways to crack down on migrants who are using the refugee crisis to either gain European benefits or commit crimes in the West, and the extradition of such illegals is now in effect. The Finnish government has confirmed that these countries are now safe enough for asylum seekers to return home, and that there is no reason for them to stay at the expense of taxpayers.

Although the new policy will not affect those who’ve been granted citizenship or permanent residence, the majority of asylum seekers will be slowly sent back. Out of 32,000 refugees who arrived in Finland in 2015, the government announced at the beginning of 2016 that two-thirds have overstayed their welcome and will be deported, the Express reports…

The failed federal sting operation to trace weapons to Mexican drug cartels has been linked to the killing of another 69 people, including one massacre in which 22 died, according to a report from Judicial Watch, the Washington watchdog organization.

Judicial Watch has been pursuing details of Fast and Furious since the program was revealed and it was discovered that it put weapons in the hands of criminals without a trace.

Blue Lives Matter Bill Makes Targeting Police A Hate Crime In Louisiana – Hot Air

Thursday the Democratic Governor of Lousiana, John Bel Edwards, signed a bill making it a hate crime to target police officers or other first responders. The bill is known as blue lives matter, a take off on the Black Lives Matter movement that has been critical of police in the past year. Gov. Edwards released a statement explaining his support for the bill:

“Coming from a family of law enforcement officers, I have great respect for the work that they do and the risks they take to ensure our safety,” said Gov. Edwards. “The men and women who put their lives on the line every day, often under very dangerous circumstances are true heroes and they deserve every protection that we can give them. They serve and protect our communities and our families. The overarching message is that hate crimes will not be tolerated in Louisiana.”

Prior to becoming law, hate crimes in Louisiana included offenses against any person because of their perceived race, age, gender, color, creed, disability, sexual orientation, national origin or ancestry. This new law adds police officers, firefighters and emergency medical service personnel.

The State Representative who wrote the bill was prompted to do so by the ambush shooting of Officer Darren Goforth in Texas last year. CNN reports:

“It looked like it was strictly done because someone didn’t like police officers, like a hate crime,” [State Rep. Lance] Harris said, adding that including officers and first responders to the hate-crime statute made sense because the existing law already is broad, covering attacks because of the victim’s race or gender or affiliation with certain organizations…

Five State Department Rules That Hillary’s Email Practices Violated – Washington Free Beacon

Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal email address as secretary of state appears to have run afoul of five different laws and regulations governing information security at the State Department, according to a recent government report.

The report, from the State Department’s inspector general, has renewed scrutiny of Clinton’s email practices, which critics say jeopardized sensitive or classified information and shielded Clinton’s activities from laws designed to ensure public access to government information.

The inspector general’s examination focused on statutes and regulations specific to the State Department. The more serious allegations against Clinton have to do with potential violations of the Espionage Act, which lays out penalties for “gross negligence” in the handling of sensitive national security information.

That investigation is ongoing, but the report identifies five other laws or regulations that Clinton circumvented or failed to follow. They contradict the Clinton campaign’s repeated claims that Clinton’s email practices at the State Department complied with all relevant rules regarding federal records and information security.

Retaining agency records after leaving
“Departing officials and employees [may] not remove Federal records from agency custody” – 36 C.F.R. § 1222.24

Clinton’s personal email address, which she used exclusively as secretary of state, was housed on a private email server in her Chappaqua, N.Y. home. That meant her emails, which are considered federal records, were never in federal custody while she served as secretary. She didn’t just retain records after leaving the State Department; those records were never in the department’s possession in the first place…

It’s Not Their Fault, It’s yours! Swedish Girls Blamed For Rise In Migrant Sex Attacks – Daily Express

Swedish police have blamed Scandinavian teenage girls’ “Nordic alcohol culture” and Western behaviour for a steep rise in sex attacks carried out by migrants.

The damning police report, which is looking at why Sweden has the worst rates of physical and sexual violence committed against women and girls in Europe, has also excused refugees who it says “cannot handle the alcohol”.

Shockingly, the report revealed the majority of sex attack victims were under the age 15.

Police also admitted the majority of attacks have taken place in public places had been committed by migrants.

But it says refugees might not be able to “handle the alcohol” and simply feel “horny” and have “ignorance of the consequences for the girls”.

The report also warns that girls in Sweden are called “whores” and abused for “their clothes” which leaves many too scared to walk the streets.

Glenn Beck, Brad Thor Discuss A ‘Patriot’ Taking Out Donald Trump – American Mirror

Talk radio host Glenn Beck and best-selling author Brad Thor believe the only way to get a President Trump out of office is for a “patriot” to apparently kill him.

Appearing on Beck’s radio program this morning, Thor said:

I am about to suggest something very bad. It is a hypothetical I am going to ask as a thriller writer.

With the feckless, spineless Congress we have, who will stand in the way of Donald Trump overstepping his constitutional authority as President? If Congress won’t remove him from office, what patriot will step up and do that if, if, he oversteps his mandate as president, his constitution-mandated authority as president, I should say.

If he oversteps that, how do we get him out of office? And I don’t think there is a legal means available. I think it will be a terrible, terrible position the American people will be in to get Trump out of office, because you won’t be able to do it through Congress.

Clinton Releases Plan To Dissolve U.S. Border Within 100 Days – Daily Insider

Professional Republicans in the #NeverTrump movement continue to oppose the presumptive nominee selected by the GOP electorate and are now floating strategies to throw the election to Hillary Clinton.

However, an examination of Clinton’s campaign promises reveals that Republicans who are willing to thwart Trump in favor of Clinton will be complicit in electing a President who would seek to bring about the complete and, possibly irreversible, dissolution of our nation’s borders.

A review of Clinton’s stated positions on the issue suggests she is perhaps the most extreme candidate on immigration ever to run for the office of the U.S. Presidency. Her views place her even further outside the mainstream of the American electorate than President Barack Obama, who systematically dismantled U.S. immigration law during his two terms in office.

Below are just a few of the extreme immigration positions held by Clinton.

(1) Expanding Unconstitutional Executive Amnesty

Perhaps one of the most radical aspects Clinton’s open borders platform is that she is openly campaigning on defending and even expanding President Obama’s unconstitutional executive amnesties.

“You can count on me to defend President Obama’s executive actions on DACA and DAPA when I am president,” Clinton said, referring to Obama’s 2012 (DACA) and 2014 (DAPA) executive amnesties, which gave work permits and access to federal benefits to millions of illegal immigrants…

Fish-Keeping Father-Of-One Is Told To Demolish His Garden Pond Because Burglars Could Fall In It And Drown – Daily Mail

State Department Sets New Single-Day Record For Syrian Refugee Approvals – Washington Times

The State Department admitted 80 Syrian refugees on Tuesday and 225 on Monday, setting a single-day record, as President Obama tries to meet his target of 10,000 approvals this year – renewing fears among security analysts who say the administration is cutting corners to meet a political goal.

Officials insist they are moving faster because of improvements in screening and say they are still running all the traps on applicants.

But the spike is stunning, with more people accepted Monday alone than in the entire months of January or February.

“The Obama administration is on full throttle to admit as many people as possible before the time clock runs out on them,” said Jessica Vaughan, policy studies director at the Center for Immigration Studies. “This is the classic scenario when political expediency trumps prudence, and someone slips through who shouldn’t have, and tragedy ensues.”

Powerless to stop the civil war in Syria, Mr. Obama has instead offered the U.S. as a haven for some of those fleeing the conflict.

DNC Chair’s PAC Has Paid More In Salaries Than It Has Given To Democrats – Washington Free Beacon

The leadership PAC of Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D., Fla.) has paid out nearly $100,000 more in salaries than it has given to Democratic candidates during the 2016 election cycle, a review of Federal Election Commission records shows.

The Democrats Win Seats PAC, or DWS PAC, has a stated mission of directing “resources to help elect Democrats around the country.” However, records show the PAC has spent more on staff than helping campaigns.

Between Jan. 1, 2015 and April 30, 2016, the PAC paid $153,453 to Lindsey Schulte, the committee’s highest-paid employee, according to a review of the DWS PAC’s finances.

Jason O’Malley, the second highest-paid employee at the PAC, collected $69,112 in salary and an additional $20,000 for “fundraising consulting fees.”

Meredith Swan made $37,463 and Anna Stolitzka made $3,164 since January 2015, bringing the PAC’s payroll to $283,282.

The DWS PAC contributed just $186,000 to the committees of Democratic politicians, with the largest donation of $15,000 going to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. The PAC disbursed $97,282 less to candidates than it paid to the people running the committee.

Oberlin Progressives Want Low Grades Thrown Out, Conversations Instead Of Written Exams – Truth Revolt

The list of demands from social justice college students around the country is growing daily. Most of them demand bully-proof safe spaces just to escape from any and all perceived oppression. Now, some at Oberlin College are asking for a bit more from administration: throw out all grades below ‘C’ and convert written exams to conversations.

With having to juggle protests, general activism, and avoiding contrary ideas written in chalk, these students are finding little time left to study and need someone to throw them a lifeline, and fast. What’s worse, as Reason points out, the stress, mental anguish, and living in a “toxic” atmosphere, is leading many students to drop out altogether.

The latest in desperate pleas on campus were discovered in a piece for The New Yorker that introduced several student activists at Oberlin who are asking the impossible.

One of them is Megan Bautista, a self-described “Afro-Latinx.” She expressed frustration at having to drive back and forth to attend the protests for cop shooting victim Tamir Rice forty minutes away and keep up school work back in 2014.

“A lot of us started suffering academically,” Bautista noted.

She had hoped that Oberline would see the needs of the Black Lives Matter movement and once again follow its previous grade modifications offered during the Vietnam War protests and the Kent State shooting in 1970. She signed her name along with over 1,300 other students to a petition asking for the elimination of average grades and below. However, the administration didn’t oblige…

‘An Abuse Of Power:’ IRS To Face Lawmakers After Thousands Seized From Small Business Owners – Daily Signal

For more than four years, Maryland dairy farmer Randy Sowers has been fighting the federal government, asking it to right what many say was a wrong.

In Feb. 2012, two federal agents told Sowers, who owns South Mountain Creamery in Frederick, Md. that the Internal Revenue Service was seizing more than $60,000 from his farm’s bank account under a subset of civil forfeiture laws governing cash transactions.

According to the IRS, Sowers had committed structuring violations. Structuring is the act of making consistent cash deposits or withdrawals of under $10,000 to avoid government reporting requirements.

But the dairy farmer didn’t know he was doing anything wrong, and because Sowers and his wife sold milk at local farmer’s markets – where customers paid primarily in cash – they frequently made cash deposits into the business’s bank account.

Sowers and his wife tried to fight to the government to get their money back, but ultimately decided to settle.

Kasich Joins Cruz, Rubio In Keeping Delegates As Campaign Leverage – Fox News

Ohio Gov. John Kasich has become the latest Donald Trump rival to take a clenched-fist approach to the delegates he won during the primary season, moving this week to keep those delegates as bargaining chips going into the party’s July nominating convention.

A former top aide to the Kasich presidential campaign confirmed to Fox News on Tuesday that he is instructing his delegates to stay bound to him through the convention.

Kasich joins Sens. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in keeping delegates on lockdown despite suspending his presidential primary campaign weeks ago. Though Trump is expected to formally clinch the nomination during the final June 7 primaries, his ex-rivals are thought to be holding onto delegates as a means of leverage.

Kasich thinks that holding onto them will force or at least persuade Trump to run a more positive general election campaign and try harder to unify the party, a Kasich aide told The Washington Post, which first reported the story.
