  • Danish Minister for Migration: “Somalis go home and rebuild your country”

    12/18/2018 2:44:57 PM PST · by DeoVindiceSicSemperTyrannis · 18 replies
    Danish authorities have concluded that the situation in some parts of Somalia is safe, and that Somalis no longer have valid grounds for asylum. Following a review of the situation in Somalia, which began in 2017, residence permits will therefore be withdrawn for no less than 1,000 Somalis. “It is time for them to go home now,” Denmark states. “If you no longer need our protection and your life and your health are no longer at risk in your homeland, you must of course return home and build up your country of origin”, says Minister for Migration Inger Støjberg, according...
  • Polish Minister says ‘France is now the sick man of Europe’ while Poland is a ‘bright spot’

    12/18/2018 2:36:30 PM PST · by DeoVindiceSicSemperTyrannis · 14 replies
    Poland’s foreign minister Jacek Czaputowicz bemoans the ‘sad’ France situation. He mentioned the jihadist attack, where a French jihadist killed five during an attack near Strasbourg Christmas market, and the Yellow Vests protests having made France Europe’s ‘sick man’. Mr. Czaputowicz asserts that the ‘Yellow Vests’ protests and last week’s jihadist attack made France a ‘drag on Europe’ while Poland is a bright spot. France and Poland have maintained an icy relationship ever since the populist Law and Justice (PiS) government came to power in Poland in 2015. As well, Macron has criticised Poland’s reforms, which according to the European...
  • BREAKING: “The people’s win” Belgian Prime Minister resigns over UN Migration Pact

    12/18/2018 2:28:23 PM PST · by DeoVindiceSicSemperTyrannis · 18 replies
    Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel has said he will resign after facing a no confidence motion in his government. The decision can be seen as another result of the migrant crisis and especially the UN Migration Pact. The member states of the European Union have taken in the bulk of migrants since the 2015 ‘crisis’. The influx of millions of ‘refugees’, mostly seen as economic migrants, has changed the make up of EU member states’. Migrant criminality rising in countries where the number of migrants has also risen has given way to votes such as Brexit and the rise of...

    To the 18 year old kid I stopped on SR 10, You’re welcome. I’d like to believe that you were minutes away from creating an unspeakable Christmas tragedy when I stopped you. If not only killing yourself, you were well on your way to killing some innocent person who was minding their own business doing nothing else wrong but being in front of you. You said you didn’t realize how fast you were going. That’s a lie. You may not realize when you’re doing 45 in a 35 but you are fully aware of every mile per hour at 100....

    Homosexual celebrations could be coming to toy aisles nationwide soon if Barbie manufacturer Mattel accepts a proposal to produce sets of same-sex “wedding” dolls.

  • Ghandi: Irredeemable racist, or product of his time? Statue taken down in Ghana

    Mahatma Ghandi is known as a beacon of peace and the nonviolent leader who helped India extract itself from British colonial rule. But his writings use racial slurs and stereotypes against people from African nations. A controversial statue of Mahatma Ghandi has been removed from the University of Ghana on the grounds that the peace icon was too much of a racist to be on display as a pioneer for equality. The statue came down overnight earlier this week, according to Al Jazeera, after protests from both students and faculty that erupted as soon as the statue was erected on...

    BENIN CITY, Nigeria — Jude Ikuenobe sensed the car following him before he saw it. Heart pounding, he turned around. Under the Libyan desert sun, the highway stretching behind him was so hot it shimmered in the distance. Nobody’s there, he tried to reassure himself for the tenth time since he had stepped out a few minutes earlier in search of water, along with three of his friends. The sandy side streets were deserted, every shop and café shuttered. It was a Friday afternoon, which meant even the armed militias who ruled Sabha, a sprawling oasis city 480 miles inland...
  • Holding science accountable for upholding white supremacy

    12/16/2018 4:10:27 PM PST · by DeoVindiceSicSemperTyrannis · 35 replies
    On Sunday, Dec. 9, Julian von Abele, CC ’21, a sophomore in the physics department, made a series of claims perpetuating white male supremacy, especially in science, and further harassed a group of primarily Black women on campus. This incident of racism that occurred on campus showed that science and physics academia blatantly and covertly attacks minorities—and their ability to be a part of the field. His rhetoric further reflected an existing pattern in science academia... A group of undergraduates studying physics at Columbia felt particularly troubled that online comments in forums defending von Abele’s rant used his work in...

    Decorated with hieroglyphs and statues, the untouched burial place was discovered south of Cairo in 'near perfect condition' Egypt unveiled a well-preserved 4,400-year-old tomb decorated with hieroglyphs and statues south of Cairo on Saturday, and officials expect more discoveries when archaeologists excavate the site further in coming months. The tomb was found in a buried ridge at the ancient necropolis of Saqqara. It was untouched and unlooted, Mostafa Waziri, secretary-general of the Supreme Council of Antiquities, told reporters at the site. He described the find as "one of a kind in the last decades." The tomb dates from the rule...

  • Gingerbread men banned at Scottish Parliament as part of a new drive to 'stamp out sexism'

    The Daily Mail ^ | 12/14/18
    Gingerbread men have been replaced by gingerbread persons in the Scottish Parliament’s coffee shop in case the traditional name causes offence. The move comes as a strategy aimed at stamping out sexual harassment and sexism was introduced at Holyrood this week after a survey found 30 per cent of women working there believed they had been sexually harassed. But the decision to rename the sweet treat has not gone down well with everyone. Scottish Conservative equalities spokesman Annie Wells said: ‘Surely the Scottish Parliament has got better things to do than worry about what to call gingerbread men? This is...
  • They lied: The UN Migration Pact IS legally binding and could be valid FOR ALL countries

    12/15/2018 6:49:41 PM PST · by DeoVindiceSicSemperTyrannis · 69 replies
    They lied. For months proponents of the UN Migration Pact told us that the pact was non-binding. The response to the many citizens of nation states worldwide having signed country specific petitions was that it was non-binding so there was nothing to worry about, it was going to be good. The immensely opposed and disastrous document declares unlimited migration to be treated as a human right, thereby deprecating the term ‘illegal migrants’, and criminalises any criticism of migration as hate speech. The points that raised alarm for most was that it seeks to eliminate all forms of dissent. Media organisations...
  • Stossel TV on “The Myth of U.S. Mass Shooters”

    12/15/2018 6:01:16 PM PST · by rogerantone1 · 22 replies
    Dozens of news outlets reported that America has the most mass shooters in the world. Many say that shows America needs more gun control. CNN claimed that “the U.S. has the most mass shootings”. The WSJ reported that “U.S. leads the world in mass shootings.” Nearly every major media outlet, and Former President Obama, said the same. But the claim is based on just one study, and the author of that study, Adam Lankford, would not release his data to either John Stossel or researchers in the field.

    North Carolina basketball Coach Roy Williams said Friday that the university should not re-erect the “Silent Sam” statue on the Chapel Hill campus, calling the Confederate monument “divisive.” “In my own personal belief, I think that it would be best for it to not be here,” Williams said, according to the Raleigh News & Observer. “And I think some of those people in the decision-making business would rather it not be here, but the only people that can change that are the ones who can make the laws, and I haven’t spoken to those people about it.” After years of...
  • Egyptian President: Migration is NOT a human right

    Egypt’s President Abd al-Fattah al-Sisi recently spoke at a forum, where he in plain language told those who have moved or want to move to Europe. “If you go to another country, you must follow their laws and culture, if not, don’t go there”, he said. In November, al-Sisi attended the World Youth Forum in Sharm el Sheikh in Egypt. He was asked how he sees the fact that several European countries are now closing the door to those who want to migrate to Europe. His answer was clear: “Instead of asking me why Europe closes the door to us,...

    A team of journalists and a retired Woodbury police officer have followed the Jodi Huisentruit case and held a dedication ceremony in June 2018 for new billboards placed in Mason City, Iowa on what would have been her 50th birthday. The TV show “48 Hours” promises to reveal “new information” Saturday in the unsolved case of Iowa anchorwoman Jodi Huisentruit, who disappeared 23 years ago. The 27-year-old Minnesota native vanished while heading to work one morning in June 1995, leaving behind evidence of a struggle in her apartment parking lot but few clues as to who assaulted her.

    A 3-year-old boy was "severely" beaten and abused -- including being burned with scalding water -- by six adults, in a consistent and coordinated form of punishment, New Jersey officials said. Patricia Gamarra, 62, Mary Buchan, 55, Patricia Buchan, 28, Bridget Buchan, 23, Natacha Smith, 43, and Homer Searcy, 39, were arrested and charged with aggravated assault and endangering the welfare of the toddler, Essex County Prosecutor’s Office said in a statement Wednesday. Smith is the 3-year-old boy’s mother, though it’s unclear if the five others have any relation to the child. The six people were living in the home...
