    The number of Swedes claiming to have been sexually assaulted has risen by 70 per cent in two years, with more than 13 per cent of women reporting to be too fearful to go out in the evening. In 2014, just 1 per cent of Swedes said they had been sexually attacked, jumping to 1.7 per cent of the population in 2015 – equivalent to about 129,000 people.
  • Chicago Homicides Even Higher Than Reported

    The record-setting violence in Chicago is even worse than announced as new evidence shows the city suffered 50 more homicides last year than the numbers publicly reported in the past week. The city posted a decades-high homicide count of 812 in 2016, per the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office. That’s 15% greater than the 762 murders reported by the city's police department. The discrepancy is largely due to the fact that the county tallies “homicides” while the police number counts “murders.” Murders are defined as violent acts subject to criminal prosecution. Homicides, according to the medical examiner, include instances “when...

    Leading Republican senator John McCain handed over an explosive dossier on Donald Trump's alleged links to Russia to the FBI in December. The alarming report contains a string of lurid allegations which were supposedly made by Russian agents in a bid to control Trump. Senator McCain, who was branded as 'not a war hero because he was captured' by Trump, sent an emissary to meet the former MI6 agent to collect a copy of the dossier.

    Legal Insurrection ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Of all the Morning Joe crew, you might be surprised to learn that it was liberal Dem Mika Brzezinski who this morning took the toughest shots at CNN and Buzzfeed for publishing unverified stories containing salacious allegations regarding Donald Trump’s business dealings with, and personal behavior in, Russia. Mika also speculated that the intelligence community might have propagated the story as payback for Trump having insulted them. Brzezinski first wondered whether CNN and Buzzfeed went with the story “because they hate [Trump] so much, or is the intelligence community literally putting the screws to Donald Trump because he insulted them?”...

    For years, my friend Jenny Boylan and I have had a recurring conversation about the purpose and value of our work. Jenny, an LGBTetc activist, has always been a buoyant believer in the power of language to overcome ignorance, misconception, and prejudice. She says: "It is impossible to hate anyone whose story you know." She engages with the public through public speaking, TV, and social media. I, a polemical cartoonist, would laugh in her face at her sweet naiveté. The public is a swarm of hostile morons, I told her. You don't need to make them understand you; you just...

    Do you want to know why Americans really were angry enough to elect Trump as President?Well, here it is — from an academic report with the dull title “The Rise and Nature of Alternative Work Arrangements in the United States 1995-2015,” which was researched and written by economics professors from Harvard and Princeton.Their conclusion: 94 percent of the job growth over the last 10 years occurred in “alternative work arrangements.”What’s an “alternative work arrangement?” Those are people who aren’t really attached to a particular company. They are freelancers, or temporary workers, or on-call workers and contractors.According to Professors Alan...

    One night Stojan asked the man in black and white in his frightening dream as to his identity. "My name is Thomas Aquinas," he responded. Stojan, educated in communist schools that pushed atheism instead of real learning, didn't recognize the Dominican saint's name. Stojan asked the nightly visitor, "Who are these children?" "They are the ones you killed with your abortions," St. Thomas told him bluntly and without preamble. Stojan awoke in shock and fear. He decided he would refuse to participate in any more abortions.

    Under the direction of a known Communist Party operative from Bulgaria dogged by corruption charges, the scandal-plagued United Nations “education” agency released a new report demanding broad changes to school textbooks around the world. It is the latest shot across the bow aimed at parental rights, local control of education, and national sovereignty.The goal of the “Global Education Monitoring Report” by the UN Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) is fairly transparent: accelerate the indoctrination of impressionable children worldwide with textbook propaganda promoting “global citizenship,” the discredited man-made global-warming theory, homosexuality, transgenderism, and outright totalitarianism. And according to the report...

    Ted Cruz lays out a raw indictment of the dems and the law for the last eight years. He goes down the list of lawless and fascist behavior of the Justice Department under Holder. No, not fascist in the hollow ad hominem name calling sense, which the liberals are constantly engaged. Fascist in the sense of the U.S. government targeting U.S. citizens for their political views.

    FULL TITLE: Dangerously malnourished 12-year-old boy is rescued from a filthy bathroom, covered in feces where 'his mother had forced him to live for a YEAR' The mother of a 12-year-old boy found dangerously malnourished and locked in a filthy bathroom has been charged with child abuse. Utah woman Brandy Kay Jaynes, 36, was arrested on a second-degree felony charge of aggravated, intentional child abuse early Monday morning. The boy had allegedly been kept in a filthy bathroom at his home in the small southeastern Utah city of Toquerville near the state line with Arizona. Court documents state the boy...

    Voting: In yet another move by the Obama administration to stick its thumb in the nation's eye on the way out, it has decided to have the federal government meddle in state and local elections. It's yet another terrible decision that Donald Trump is going to have to undo. With almost no notice, Homeland Security chief Jeh Johnson announced that his department was designating the nation's elections system as "critical infrastructure," thereby giving DHS greater control over how states run their own elections. This is a classic example of a government solution in search of a problem, one that will...

    President Barack Hussein Obama bid farewell last night to the nation he despises in what was, for him, a mercifully brief speech. “America is a better, stronger place than it was when we started,” he said in all apparent seriousness. After sending aid and comfort to an Islamic supremacist dictator in Egypt, he falsely claimed to have pulled the rug out from the Islamic Republic of Iran’s nuclear weapon program. The Nobel Peace Prize winner left out how his illegal war destabilized Libya and the fact that the U.S. military deeply distrusts him. He pretended the economy is going gangbusters...

    resident Obama mentioned in his farewell speech that no foreign terrorist organization has planned and executed an attack on the homeland. Because of the extraordinary courage of our men and women in uniform, and the intelligence officers, law enforcement, and diplomats who support them, no foreign terrorist organization has successfully planned and executed an attack on our homeland these past eight years The president has been laying it on thick over the past week with this claim. On January 4, at Fort Myer in Arlington, President Obama addressed members of the military in a farewell ceremony, where he reiterated the...
  • David Horowitz Attacked During Senatorial Witch-Hunt of Jeff Sessions

    Editors' note: David Horowitz was used as a pawn today in the senatorial witch-hunt of Senator Jeff Sessions, Trump's choice for Attorney General. Senator Richard Blumenthal thoughtlessly passed on malicious slanders against Horowitz from the mis-named “Rights Coalition” led by the leftist Alliance for Justice. Blumenthal's attempt at a smear-job backfired when Sessions praised Horowitz's work and refused Blumenthal's demand that he disavow Horowitz and the Freedom Center. Instead, Blumenthal helped introduce David Horowitz's work and the Freedom Center to a new generation of patriots. Below is Horowitz's refutation of the slanders. In a press release expressing concern over the...
