    Questions about John McCain’s foundation have arisen amid revelations that, for the last several years the foundation has not been using its donations, instead depositing small amounts of their large endowment into the Arizona State University Foundation. This issue has added importance when considered in the context of John McCain’s controversial sources of funding and the arrest of a number of past campaign workers on charges such as child abuse and drug trafficking.

    British armed forces offered to attempt to rescue nearly 300 Nigerian schoolgirls kidnapped by the Islamist militant group Boko Haram, but were rebuffed by Goodluck Jonathan, Nigeria’s president at the time, the Observer has learned. In a mission named Operation Turus, the RAF conducted air reconnaissance over northern Nigeria for several months, following the kidnapping of 276 girls from the town of Chibok in April 2014. “The girls were located in the first few weeks of the RAF mission,” a source involved in Operation Turus told the Observer. “We offered to rescue them, but the Nigerian government declined.” The girls...

    David Seaman, a journalist who investigated Pizzagate and had made hundreds of videos, is now without any videos on his YouTube channel.

    Donald Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, is pushing her father and the new White House administration to take legislative action on the issue of human trafficking, according to Axios. On Thursday afternoon, Donald Trump held a listening session on the issue, to greater understand the problem of women and girls who are trafficked into America, and then sexually exploited for profit. However, the issue was fast-tracked onto the agenda by Ivanka Trump, alongside Dina Powell, the White House senior counselor for economic initiatives. According to a source close to Axios, “Ivanka recommended the meeting to the president and he immediately agreed,...

    Four members of a Muslim grooming gang look set to be deported after losing a legal battle to stop the government stripping them of their British citizenship. All four hold dual UK and Pakistani citizenship. Mr. Justice Bernard McCloskey, Britain’s most senior immigration judge, rejected their appeal against then Home Secretary Theresa May’s decision to take away their British nationality. Gang ringleader Shabir Ahmed, 64, has already lost an appeal against his possible deportation in the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR), during which he claimed his convictions were a conspiracy by police and members of the jury to “scapegoat”...

    ZeroHedge.com ^ | January 25, 2017 | William Craddick
    Abstract: Contrary to reports in the media, the crowd sourced investigation labeled by some as "Pizzagate" did not begin with internet sleuths digging through the Wikileaks Podesta Files releases looking for pizza parlors and encoded language discussing human trafficking. It began with the shocking discovery that Hillary and Bill Clinton provided assistance to convicted child trafficker, Laura Silsby, resulting in a reduced sentence for child trafficking. Silsby was arrested at the Haitian border attempting to smuggle 33 children out of Haiti without documentation. Her sentence and charges were reduced after an intervention by Bill Clinton. In the aftermath of Silsby's...

In educating us on what Goodwill does, the spokesperson volunteered that the money generated from sale of donated items drives their job training program. All good, until . . . He then volunteered that of the 5000 trained locally last year and placed in jobs, 1800 were Syrian refugees. Since I'm in the People's Soviet of Washington,...

Below is a video of the truck being emptied at the border control station between Bulgaria and Romania. Watch all the Iraqis exit the truck. When they’re all finally out on the garage floor, you can see there were no chocolates at all in the cargo compartment — nothing but Iraqis. This must have been a fairly sophisticated operation. It presumably included the collusion of the...

Shirin is among 13 families AFP traced and interviewed across three Afghan provinces who said their children were taken for the pervasive practice of "bacha bazi", or paedophilic exploitation, in Western-backed security forces. Their testimonies shine a rare spotlight on the anguished, solitary struggles to free sons, nephews and cousins from a tradition of culturally-sanctioned enslavement and rape.

    Sanctuary City policies encourage human trafficking of illegal aliens and whether mayors, supervisors and complicit law enforcement officers are also complicit in those crimes? Every time the issue of illegal aliens or deportation comes up, the Left, argues against something they know isn’t going to happen. But the reason the Left always brings the conversation to the line, “how are you going to round up and deport 15 million undocumented immigrants?” is not to get an answer, It is to get you to feel bad for even thinking about deporting anyone. Because they know it isn’t going to happen the...

    Much has been made about pedophilia and child trafficking rings lately. Most of it has been difficult to prove and many internet sleuths on Reddit and Twitter have crossed the line that separates libel from truth, but that doesn't mean that pedophilia and politics haven't gone hand-in-hand before. Disturbing investigations around the world have linked high ranking officials, politicians and aristocrats to pedophilia, child pornography and trafficking rings in the past. In the 1980s, a member of the British parliament named Geoffrey Dickens claimed that pedophilia and child trafficking were rampant within the corridors of power in the UK. His...

    Immigration only made a brief cameo in Monday night’s debate, but Donald Trump managed to once again falsely connect immigrants to crime.In response to a question on race relations in America, Trump said:“We have gangs roaming the street. And in many cases, they’re illegally here, illegal immigrants. And they have guns. And they shoot people. And we have to be very strong. And we have to be very vigilant.”No matter how researchers slice the data, though, the numbers show that immigrants commit fewer crimes than native-born Americans. But that’s not good enough for Trump’s followers. They firmly believe immigrants make...
