    Berkeley Chancellor investigates Freedom Center posters as a “Hate Crime." Editorial note: On Thursday night, the poster above and several others were put up all over the campus of UC Berkeley in conjunction with Milo Yiannopoulos’s “Free Speech Week.” The next morning, as soon as they were discovered, Berkeley’s new chancellor, Carol Christ, ordered her minions to tear down the posters, lest they be seen and read by Berkeley students. Chancellor Christ accompanied this assault on free speech with an announcement that her staff was investigating to see whether the posters constituted a “hate crime.”Only recently, Chancellor Christ had won...

    “Intifada, Intifada/long live the Intifada!” Editor's note: The David Horowitz Freedom Center today announced the University of California-Irvine as the second school named in its new report on the “Top Ten Worst Schools that Support Terrorists.” It joins its sister school, the University of California-Berkeley on the list.

As revealed in recent congressional testimony, Students for Justice in Palestine is...

Bates is a retired police officer who was involuntarily committed twice this year for mental health reasons, according to court documents filed by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in D.C....

    The North Korean foreign minister says Pyongyang has every right to take countermeasures against US aggression, including shooting down warplanes, even if they are not in North Korean airspace. Speaking to reporters in New York on Monday, North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho said that US President Donald Trump has effectively declared war on Pyongyang, meaning all options were on the table for his country’s leadership. “The whole world should clearly remember it was the US who first declared war on our country,” Reuters quoted him as saying. “Since the United States declared war on our country, we will...

    A 15-year-old boy has been arrested after six people were injured on Saturday night in what police suspect was a mass acid attack in Stratford, east London. It came after a “noxious substance” was thrown in several areas – including by the Westfield shopping centre and Olympic Park – during a stand-off between two groups of males, police said. Witnesses described how innocent victims caught in the crossfire screamed in pain after being hit with fluid, with one shouting: “‘I can’t see, I can’t see.” They said the attacks came after a brawl erupted inside the Stratford Centre between the...

    The United States put twin brothers from South Africa who planned attacks on Jewish institutions in their country and on the U.S. Embassy on its terror blacklist. Brandon-Lee and Tony-Lee Thulsie, 24, were arrested in July 2016 in South Africa and charged with three counts related to terrorism. They had converted to Islam the year before. […] The twins allegedly tried to fly to Syria in April 2015 to join the Islamic State but were stopped after the Hawks, a specialized crime-fighting unit, informed the airline on which they intended to travel. They are subsequently alleged to have “unlawfully and...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — In a show of American military might to North Korea, U.S. bombers and flight escorts flew on Saturday to the farther point north of the border between North and South Korea by any such American aircraft this century. The Pentagon said the mission in international airspace showed how seriously President Donald Trump takes North Korea’s “reckless behavior.” “This mission is a demonstration of U.S. resolve and a clear message that the president has many military options to defeat any threat,” Defense Department spokesman Dana White said in a statement. “North Korea’s weapons program is a grave threat...

    The New York Times ^ | September 24, 2017 | Julie Hirschfeld Davis
    When President Trump gave a fiery campaign speech in Huntsville, Ala., on Friday evening, he drew a rapturous roar by ridiculing Kim Jong-un, the North Korean leader, as “Little Rocket Man.” Among diplomats and national security specialists, the reaction was decidedly different. After Mr. Trump repeated his taunt in a tweet late Saturday and threatened that Mr. Kim and his foreign minister “won’t be around much longer” if they continue their invective against the United States, reactions ranged from nervous disbelief to sheer terror. Mr. Trump’s willingness to casually threaten to annihilate a nuclear-armed foe was yet another reminder of...

    On September 18, 2017, roughly one week after the 16th anniversary of the terror attacks of September 11, 2001, the LA Times reported on California's "sanctuary state" bill-SB 54 that would ostensibly “expand protections for immigrants” by preventing officers from questioning and holding people on immigration violations.   To understand the ominousness of this measure, we must look back to the 9/11 Commission's official “9/11 and  Terrorist Travel” report, which focused on the multiple failures of the immigration system that enabled the 9/11 terrorists and other international terrorists to enter the United States and embed themselves as they went about their deadly preparations....

    SCIENTISTS fear a volcano on China's border with North Korea could erupt at any moment after being triggered into life by Kim Jong-un’s nuclear missile tests. Mount Paektu is responsible for one of the most powerful eruptions in human history - and now scientists fear it could blow once more. Officials in China have now closed the popular national park next to the volcano to keep the public safe, reports the Express. Nuclear tests from North Korea have triggered tremors in the 70-square-mile Changbaishan National Nature Reserve which neighbours the volcano. The Chinese authorities said: “For the safety and convenience...

    President Trump accused Iran of collaborating with North Korea to strengthen their missile technology Saturday evening in a Twitter post criticizing the 2015 nuclear agreement between the U.S., Iran and five other nations. "Iran just test-fired a Ballistic Missile capable of reaching Israel," Trump wrote. "They are also working with North Korea. Not much of an agreement we have!"

    She had been orphaned by a brutal conflict, but the 14-year-old Congolese girl found refuge in a camp protected by United Nations peacekeepers. The camp should have been safe the day she was raped. A delegation from the U.N. was paying a visit, and her grandmother had left her in charge of her siblings. That was the day, the girl says, that a Pakistani peacekeeper slipped inside their home and assaulted her in front of the other children. But that was not the end of her story. Even though she reported the rape, the girl never got any help from...
  • North Korea: Tremor detected near weapon test site

    BBC ^ | 09/23/17
    A magnitude 3.4 earthquake has been detected in North Korea. The earthquake occurred about 50km (31 miles) from a nuclear test site, monitors say. Previous quakes were caused by weapon tests. Chinese seismologists said it was a "suspected explosion" but South Korea says that it could be a natural quake not caused by a nuclear test. The US Geological Survey (USGS), meanwhile, said it could not yet make a judgment as to the cause. North Korea carried out a massive nuclear test on 3 September which was widely condemned at the UN. The size of Saturday's tremor is smaller than...

    Fewer rapes have been solved in Sweden so far in 2017 than by the same stage a year before, new figures from the country’s National Council on Crime Prevention (Brĺ) suggest. Brĺ’s preliminary figures for the first six months of 2017 show that only eight percent of rapes investigated by police this year have been solved (meaning 302 have been solved), down from 12 percent at the same stage a year before, when 354 were solved. Police say they want to do more, but complain that limited resources are hampering their cause. According to Brĺ’s researcher on sex crimes, there...

    French President Emmanuel Macron said at the United Nations this week that renouncing the Iran nuclear deal would be “a grave error.” “Not respecting it would be irresponsible, because it is a good agreement that is essential to peace at a time where the risk of an infernal conflagration cannot be excluded,” he told the General Assembly in New York on Tuesday. The remarks were an indirect riposte to President Trump, who earlier the same day called the deal known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) “one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the United States has...

    In a major diplomatic victory for the Trump administration, the U.S. has convinced the Chinese government to halt all financial transactions with North Korea. Make no mistake: this is a huge step forward in putting pressure on North Korea to halt its rush to develop nuclear weapons and long-range missiles.  It will have near immediate impact on North Korea's ability to pay its bills.  In a carefully choreographed strategy deployed from the shadow of the United Nations headquarters in New York, Treasury Secretary Steven T. Mnuchin called the head of China's central bank very early Thursday to alert him...

    U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement on Thursday appealed a judge's ruling that halted the abrupt deportation of 1,400 Iraqi nationals nationwide, including 114 from Metro Detroit. Nearly all of the Iraqi nationals, who are now waiting to learn their fates in detention centers, have outstanding and, in many cases, long-dormant deportation orders stemming from prior criminal convictions. "The criminal history of these aliens includes convictions for homicide, rape, aggravated assault, drug trafficking, sex assault and many other types of offenses," Acting ICE Director Thomas D. Homan said in a statement after the deportation sweeps. Each of the detainees had been...

    A report written by the German parliament’s legal experts has found that parliament and not Angela Merkel should have decided on opening Germany’s borders to refugees in September 2015. The report by the Bundestag Scientific Office, a team of non-partisan legal experts, stated that it is the role of the Bundestag (German parliament) to decide on all matters of essential relevance to the state. In the document, the main findings of which were published by Die Welt on Friday, the experts do not explicitly say that the decision made by German Chancellor Angela Merkel on September 4th 2015 to take...
