    After the kidnapping of more than 500 Yazidi girls by Islamic State (IS) militants, the women are being sold in Quds Neighborhood in Mosul through a special office. The Head of The Women’s Committee in the Kurdistan Parliament, Evar Ibrahim, told BasNews, “After kidnapping 500 Yazidi girls from Sinjar and taking them to Mosul, the IS insurgents are now, through a special office in the Quds Neighborhood of the city, selling them to people.” “The price of each girl starts from IQD 20,000 [US $17] to 30,000 [$26]. Despite selling them, the Yazidi girls have been raped by the IS...

    Pharoah, let my people go: How did ancient Egypt become a land of slaves building fantastic monuments to dictatorial leaders? The land of Egypt was rich and fertile, a seeming paradise for egalitarian living. Stephanie Pappas writes in Live Science about how despots “evolved” in ancient societies, but that’s a misleading use of the term; it actually was a series of bad choices by free people. She writes how Simon Powers at the University of Lausanne came up with a mathematical model to explain the shift from egalitarianism to despotism. Whether it actually explains them could be disputed, but he...

    Restrictionists in the immigration debate have long bemoaned the mid-movie understanding of third world-invasion lawlessness and the sudden concern among elected officials and others in highlighting the sex-slave trade. The reason is that these same people have IGNORED the consequences of NAFTA free-trading, open borders, and free-wheeling hiring practices that in turn gave us the glam hysteria of the CHILD SEX-SLAVING INDUSTRY with no real efforts to prosecute it!. As the title to this blogpost indicates, LAWLESSNESS BREEDS LAWLESSNESS.

    SNIP “But, wait!” you say. “Black slaves in Iraq? The Middle East?” Today, American children—thanks to the revolution fostered by the institutionalization of black studies starting in the late 1960s—mainly learn about slavery starting with the Middle Passage, the tens of thousands of slave ships that headed west from Africa across the Atlantic to the Americas between the 16th and 19th centuries. But, it turns out, there’s a good chance the European powers that backed those ships learned to link slavery and race from the eastern powers that once occupied the same lands. That’s what the dean of the history...

    Terrible ideas never really die on the Left; they just come back over and over again, like a gas station sandwich after a night of heavy drinking. So it is with reparations for slavery, which liberals would happily embrace en masse if they ever thought they could ram it through Congress. Here's why reparations for slavery are a bad idea. 1) How do you prove that slavery is responsible for problems black Americans are having today? If it were 1866, it would be easy to prove that black Americans who had been enslaved were hurt by the practice. They were...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK) Since the American colonies declared independence from Great Britain in 1776, there have been questions of what that independence means for America’s black citizens. As early as 1781, states were officially observing Independence Day – a full 82 years before Lincoln would issue the Emancipation Proclamation and 85 years before the last slaves were freed in Galveston, Texas. Abolitionist and former slave Frederick Douglass was asked to speak at an Independence Day celebration in 1852 at Rochester’s Corinthian Hall. In a time when most other blacks were still not free, he gave the speech - though it may not...

"But for operations like this, these children likely would never have been found." He said better laws were needed to require child welfare service to report children who disappear.

When I was in elementary school, the face of Lee on Stone Mountain was a rough-cut thing, weathering and wasting as the generation that began it in 1912—a generation...

    Calls for slavery reparations have returned with the publication of Ta-Nehisi Coates' "The Case for Reparations" in The Atlantic magazine. In making his argument, Coates goes through the horrors of slavery, Reconstruction, Jim Crow and gross racial discrimination. First off, let me say that I agree with reparations advocates that slavery was a horrible, despicable violation of basic human rights. The gross discrimination that followed emancipation made a mockery of the guarantees of the U.S. Constitution. I also agree that slave owners and slave traders should make reparations to those whom they enslaved. The problem, of course, is that slaves,...

    The Corwin Amendment read as follows: No amendment shall be made to the Constitution which will authorize or give to Congress power to abolish or interfere, within any State, with the domestic institutions thereof, including that of persons held to labor or service by the laws of said State. The Corwin Amendment was an effort to placate the South and contain secessionist sentiment. It proposed to do three things. First, to protect slavery by giving each state the power to regulate the “domestic institutions” within its borders. This was an enticing carrot for the slave states: stay in the Union...

When Congress ignored their thousands of petitions, they tried to sue for wage theft but were told they could not. At the very least, the descendants of the tens of thousands of members of the Ex-Slave Pension and Bounty movement – whose membership forms stated the number of years they had been working as slaves, along with the names of their slave owners and the plantations on which they lived – should be eligible for reparations. Other individuals...

    Progressives have long called for reparations—payments to blacks for the horrors of slavery. These were routinely dismissed because they’re absurd – those who suffered the injustice of slavery and those who perpetrated it are long dead, and most Americans of every national origin had nothing to do with it. But the push for reparations truly never was about slavery, it’s about redistribution of wealth and perpetrating the victimhood mentality that keeps people voting for progressives. To think they’d ever stop would be like thinking a heroin addict wouldn’t steal your iPhone if you let them crash on your couch –...

    Slavery is when human beings are owned by other human beings, used and often abused like animals, and taken advantage of all in pursuit of profit, either financially or for power. Slaves rarely were able to escape, and those who did often had to remain in hiding or in fear for their entire lives. Slaves who could not escape were doomed to toil, and frequently their children and grandchildren suffered the same fate. According to MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry, the National Basketball Association is just like this. Never mind that NBA players make millions of dollars every year. Never mind that,...

    Europe is facing its largest human rights crisis in over two decades, according to the Strasbourg-based Council of Europe (CoE). The human rights watchdog, in a report published on Wednesday (16), says corruption, human trafficking, racism and discrimination persist across Europe. […] CoE secretary general Thorbjřrn Jagland—in a statement entitled “Europe in biggest human rights crisis since Cold War”—said the lack of democratic checks and balances, free media and an independent judiciary is the cause of widespread corruption and misuse of power. He is calling for a “new pan-European security agenda” to help stem the abuse. …

    Within the context of keeping the Syrian jihad alive, it seems there is no end to the attempts of some Islamic clerics to legitimize otherwise forbidden behavior in order to gratify the sexual urges of the jihadis and keep them fighting Syrian president Bashar Assad.

    Evolution is fricking amazing. Nowhere is this more evident than in parasites. They make use of and take over their hosts in remarkable ways—truly living up to “survival of the fittest.” For example, regard the beautiful emerald jewel wasp. The wasp paralyzes and zombifies cockroaches to lay an egg on the abdomen of the unsuspecting insects. When the egg hatches, the wasp larva emerges and eventually eats its way into the belly of the roach. The larva then pupates inside the cockroach, building a cocoon and eventually emerging as a grown wasp. Last year we described the unbelievable way the...

    Speaking to a group of awestruck Chinese citizens, Michelle Obama recounted her years of oppression as a victim of racism and how she survived the American extermination camps. "There were laws in America that discriminated against people like me because of the color of our skin," said Michelle. A sharp inward gasp was heard as the interpreter finished her comment in Mandarin. Still haunted by laws that were no longer in effect when she was born, Michelle outlined her plight as she endured racism in Princeton University, and narrowly escaped death at Harvard Law School. Tears were seen streaming down...

    On his Twitter page, Maher cracked “wise” on Saturday, comparing unpaid college basketball players to slaves in the American colonies: March Madness really is a stirring reminder of what America was founded on: making tons of money off the labor of unpaid black people — Bill Maher (@billmaher) March 22, 2014

      Can you believe that after all these years Bill Clinton sex scandals are still emerging, evolving... and getting worse?   Good grief, man- Slick Willie (and sidekick Willie Jr) are no spring chickens, both turning 68 this year. But just when you thought he couldn't get any lower, we hear of Bubba and a major bundler proven by flight records to have traveled repeatedly to the very same fundraiser's private island, which was allegedly stocked with underage 'sex slaves' being held against their will... you just can't make this stuff up any better than Bubba does it.  ...

    Data from the Polaris Project and other research studies indicate human trafficking in Virginia primarily takes place in the urban areas of state. Studies suggest northern Virginia, Richmond and the Hampton Roads region experience the most trafficking. The Virginia Free Citizen reached out to local law enforcement officials in these areas to investigate the presence of human trafficking in Virginia and their anti-human trafficking efforts. Last week we reported on Virginia’s statewide efforts. Northern Virginia Human Trafficking Task Force Receives $1 Million Grant to Combat Human Trafficking Detective Bill Woolf, with the Fairfax County Police Department, said human trafficking is...

    . In honor of St. Patrick's Day, lets remember captives and slaves whose sacrifice made ours lives so much better. Many don't know that Patrick was NOT Irish. He was born in Scotland and captured by the Irish when he was a teenager. Then he spread Christianity to the Irish. In the Bible, Joseph's brother's sold him into slavery. When he was later able to save his family, he told them, "What you meant for evil, God meant for Good." Thousands of years later, Squanto was captived by Europeans and taken away. Years later, after learning English, he made his...

    Virginia Free Citizens ^ | 3/12/14 | Shelby Mertens
    It is difficult to estimate the number of cases involving human trafficking in Virginia since many cases probably go unreported and there are a plethora of charges that fall under human trafficking, such as prostitution, extortion, receiving money for procuring a person, cruelty and injuries to children and abduction. The Polaris Project tracks the number of phone calls the National Human Trafficking Resource Center’s hotline receives, but it is important to note that this is not a completely accurate way of tracking human trafficking because any citizen can call the hotline for information, and not all victims call the hotline....

    Ray Jasper, a Death Row inmate in Texas scheduled for execution in two weeks, has written a lengthy letter from prison where he blasts the justice system and the specter of racial disparity. Jasper, who was a young rap artist at the time, was accused of the brutal robbing and killing of a recording studio owner in 1998. Convicted in 2000 and later sentenced to death, Jasper has used a platform provided to him in where he lashes out at the prison system, likening it to slavery. Gawker Media began a Letters From Death Row series in 2012, in which...
