  • Trump: Muslim Migration "Destroying Europe, I'm Not Gonna Let That Happen to The U.S."

    Information Liberation ^ | 5/4/2016 | P. J. Watson
    Billionaire refuses to walk back controversial policy Fresh off his massive victory in Indiana, presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump told MSNBC's Morning Joe earlier today that he would stick by his controversial policy on Muslim immigration because the migrant crisis is "destroying Europe". Trump's proposal to place a temporary halt on Muslim immigration to the United States was perhaps his most incendiary of the campaign, but the New York billionaire shows no signs of walking it back. Asked if he still believed "Muslims should be banned from entering the country until we can figure out what's going on," Trump said...
  • Two Labour councillors suspended after calling for Jews in Israel to 'relocate' to America

    Telegraph ^ | 5-2-16 | Kate McCann,
    Two Labour councillors have been suspended after they posted apparently anti-Semitic comments on Facebook. A party source said an investigation will be carried out into the comments made by both men. One councillor called for Jews in Israel to "relocate" to America in a series of apparently anti-Semitic posts on Facebook. Ilyas Aziz, who backed Jeremy Corbyn's leadership and appears on the site pictured with both Mr Corbyn and John McDonnell, also posted offensive images appearing to call for Jews to "stop drinking Gaza blood". A second, Salim Mulla, claimed Israel is behind Isil and reposted the same message suspended...

    After Donald Trump secured the Republican nomination on Tuesday night, the BBC rounded up the reactions from the global press to Trump's victory. Aside from some gloating in authoritarian Russia and China, the reaction was pretty shocked. "The craziest US presidential election campaign begins," Germany's Die Welt daily wrote. "The unthinkable has come to pass."

    The wreckage of the Endeavour, the storied British ship that 18th-century explorer Captain James Cook sailed through the uncharted South Pacific, may lie a few hundred feet off Rhode Island’s coast in Newport Harbor, researchers said Wednesday. The 105-foot (32-meter) long, three-masted bark, later renamed the Lord Sandwich, had been hired out by the British Royal Navy as a troop transport when it was one of 13 ships deliberately sunk by the British in 1778 in an effort to blockade the harbor.

    The Royal Navy fired flares to warn of a Spanish patrol boat harassing an American nuclear submarine off Gibraltar. The fast patrol boat HMS Sabre fired warning shots across the bow of a Guardia Civil vessel as it twice tried to cut across the path of USS Florida during an incursion into Gibraltar’s waters. Gibraltar says Spanish vessels regularly stray deep into its territorial waters and the Foreign Office has attacked the incursions as provocative.

The presumptive Republican presidential nominee’s campaign has been using Rolling Stones music — he played a recording of the song “Start Me Up” at a speech late last month and again Tuesday night — and the band isn’t happy about it. The 54-year-old group has requested Trump stop using Stones music.

    British Prime Minister David Cameron should apologise for his disparaging remarks about Donald Trump – who is now almost certain to become the Republican Presidential candidate after a crushing defeat of his main rival Ted Cruz last night – according to a key Trump campaign advisor. Mr. Cameron has called the Republican candidate “divisive stupid and wrong” for remarks about restricting Muslim immigration to the United States, something which Trump advisor George Papadopoulos thinks warrants an apology. Mr. Papadopoulos also blasted President Obama’s intervention in the EU referendum campaign, and stressed that Britain’s relationship with the U.S. would flourish, Brexit...

    The European Commission will on Wednesday propose a mandatory relocation system for asylum seekers, and will make it expensive for those EU countries that refuse to take part, according to an internal Commission document seen by POLITICO. It’s part of a planned shake-up of the bloc’s asylum rules that aims to ease the pressure on the EU countries at the bloc’s external borders. If the proposal becomes law, the EU country in which migrants first set foot would in principle have to process their asylum claims, but that country would no longer be obliged to host all of the migrants...

    Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump has said Israel should continue building in Judea and Samaria, insisting the Jewish state should "keep moving forward" in response to Arab terrorism. Speaking to the UK's Daily Mail, Trump emphasized his support for the State of Israel, and appeared to veer away from previous comments in which he declared that he would stay "neutral" on the Arab-Israeli conflict. Trump referenced the "thousands of missiles being launched into Israel," by Arab terrorists prior to the 2014 Gaza war, asking rhetorically: "Who would put up with that? Who would stand for it?" He also said he...

[…] The photographs in which (Aria) Ladjedvardi appears were taken in the spring of 2014 and posted on Facebook. Federal prosecutors believe he and two fellow fighters took the pictures to belittle their victims, whom they considered infidels or non-believers. They also believe that Ladjedvardi, a German of Iranian origin, traveled to Syria in early 2014 to join one of the jihadist groups engaged in the fight against President Bashar al-Assad’s regime....

American officials have balked as their Israeli counterparts insisted on more generous terms for a new 10-year military aid package that could top $40 billion. The divide, which could have broad national security implications for both the United States and Israel, is exacerbated by the pent-up animosity between Mr. Obama and Mr. Netanyahu, which has been stoked by...

While volumes could be written on the moral debasement alone catalyzed by the left, America’s standing in the world, our economy, our educational system, our worldview and collective self-image, among many other things, have been targets for incremental debasement by the left. When liberals began targeting the sexual attitudes of our population through mass media and junk science such as Alfred Kinsey’s perverted sex studies, suddenly the worst thing one could be was a prude, and...

    Unless you live under a rock in a very shady part of the forest or in England or Wales, you have no doubt heard of the peculiar domestic arrangements of the world’s most famous gay marriage. The British musician Elton John and his husband David Furnish, who married last December after several years in a civil partnership, have been in tabloid headlines around the world after revelations that Mr Furnish has been involved in trysts with other men. Except, however, in England and Wales, where publication of anything about the sordid affair has been gagged.

    slamic Jew-hatred - it's in the Quran. Is this surprising? No. And it's proof of the nefarious convergence of leftism and antisemitism. Labour is left. Interesting note: it was a blogger who discovered the hate-filled post. Bloggers are doing the work the media won't.

    Conservative columnist and provocateur Richard Littlejohn poked fun at President Obama Monday after he hosted a town hall in London that was a bit heavy on the "diversity" and political correctness for his taste. The audience for the event, which was held on Saturday, was reportedly chosen by the American Embassy and "appeared heavily weighted to appease the ‘diversity’ brigade," according to Littlejohn. "Take another look at the audience at Barack Obama’s ‘town hall’ meeting in London," Littlejohn invited Daily Mail readers. "Is this a portrait of Britain you recognise?" I know we are ordered to celebrate ‘diversity’ at all...

    While the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement has done little to hide its malicious anti-Israel hatred, the movement hitherto has succeeded in maintaining the appearance of legitimacy, presenting itself as the peaceful alternative to terrorism. Despite rhetoric which pro-Israel activists have noted signals a rejection of Jewish statehood per se and draws upon the kind of terrorist propaganda disseminated by Hamas and the PLO, no clear link tying BDS to supporters of terror organizations could be found. Last week, however, a former terrorism finance analyst for the US Treasury Department offered testimony to congress suggesting connections between the BDS movement...

Daily life over the past seven and a half years and the six o’clock news will relieve you of these fictions.

    President Barack Obama urged Black Lives Matter activists to work with the leaders of institutions instead of “keeping on yelling at them” at a youth town hall event. Obama made the remarks on Saturday — in London, England, well over 3,000 miles from the nearest American Black Lives Matter protester, according to the Daily Mail. “You can’t just keep on yelling at them and you can’t refuse to meet because that might compromise the purity of your position,” Obama urged his young British audience. “The value of social movements and activism is to get you at the table, get you...
