    PJ Media ^ | JUNE 19, 2018 | BY ROBERT SPENCER
    The migrant violence that is becoming a feature of daily life in Sweden, Germany, France and elsewhere in Europe is now coming to the United States. Did we think we would be immune? Maine’s Sun Journal reported last week that a “melee” broke out near Kennedy Park in Lewiston, Maine, initiated by “at least two dozen teenagers, preteens and adults.” This mob was made up of Somali Muslim migrants: News Center Maine reports: “[A]ccording to family members, the fight was between white and Somali members of the Lewiston community.” Our immigration chickens are, as the Rev. Jeremiah Wright would say,...

    Guardian ^ | 20/6/18
    The far right in the UK is mobilising itself around protests over the imprisonment of the former English Defence League leader Tommy Robinson, a group of MPs, union leaders and political activists have said. In a letter to the Guardian, they say a violent 15,000-strong far-right protest in support of Robinson in central London on 9 June raised concerns for those who value diversity. “The racist right are using Robinson to reorganise,” the letter says. It says Nazi salutes and Islamophobia were central features of the protest. At one point demonstrators chased police through the streets of Whitehall. “This is...

    Donald Trump Jr. has canceled a fundraiser he was scheduled to hold for Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush after multiple members of the Bush family levied harsh criticism at President Donald Trump’s administration for its enforcement of immigration laws. The barrage began earlier this week when former First Lady Laura Bush (the wife of former president and Texas governor George W. Bush and George P. Bush’s aunt) wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post in which she called Trump’s handling of illegal immigration “immoral,” a narrative pushed by national Democrats and, in Texas, retiring Texas House Speaker Joe Straus....

    McLennan County District Attorney Abel Reyna on Tuesday fired prosecutor Amanda Dillon, the last of Reyna’s remaining employees who provided information to the FBI during its investigation of Reyna. Dillon, who worked as an assistant district attorney for almost eight years, confirmed that Reyna and First Assistant District Attorney Robert Moody called her into Reyna’s office Tuesday afternoon and fired her. When she asked for grounds for the dismissal, Dillon said Reyna only responded, “It’s all documented.” Reyna then had Dillon escorted from the DA’s office by one of his investigators, she said. Reyna did not return the Tribune-Herald’s calls...

    An Islamic State (ISIS) fanatic who plotted to kill British Prime Minister Theresa May in a suicide attack planned to “take her head off”, a court heard Tuesday, according to the Press Association. Naa’imur Zakariyah Rahman, 20, allegedly wanted to make “big news” by storming 10 Downing Street with explosives and a knife as May talked to the press outside. He was encouraged by an uncle who joined ISIS in Syria and was killed in a drone strike, the Old Bailey heard. Rahman’s intentions were foiled after he revealed his plans to MI5 agents, posing as ISIS operatives in Telegram...

    Italy’s Matteo Salvini warned Saturday that no NGO-operated ships carrying migrants would be allowed to dock at Italian ports. “Italy no longer wants to be an accomplice of human traffickers and contribute to the business of illegal immigration,” Matteo Salvini, who leads the far-right League, said in a Facebook post on Saturday. More than 600 migrants are expected to reach Italian shores on Saturday on board Italian, British and U.S. military ships, according to a statement by the Italian interior ministry cited by La Repubblica. Salvini’s post specifically targeted NGO-operated two ships flying Dutch flags — which he described as...

    The long-awaited showdown between the Justice Department and Congress is finally here. It started late Friday afternoon. While the rest of the country was parsing the just-released report on the FBI from the Justice Department’s inspector general, senior congressional leaders and selected committee chairmen quietly met with FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein at a secure location in the basement of the Capitol. At issue was Justice and FBI’s continuing defiance of congressional subpoenas. At the top of this list is the demand from the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence for documents about why and...

    Beer-guzzling soccer fans risk drinking bars and restaurants in the Russian capital dry, with some saying they are running low and having to wait longer than usual for fresh supplies. Moscow has been transformed by the World Cup, with singing, chanting and beer swilling fans overwhelming some of the packed bars and restaurants around the Kremlin and Red Square. "We just didn't think they would only want beer," said one waiter at a upscale eatery in central Moscow who asked not to be identified for fear of scaring off future customers.
