James Johnson, the South Carolina president of Al Sharpton’s National Action Network [NAN], held a press conference in front of Andrew’s Discount Market yesterday. This is a convenience store located in North Charleston and run by immigrants.
Johnson referred to the store’s employee as “Arabs” and “foreigners.” He called on them to go back to the Middle East, saying “we want [them] out of our community completely. We want him gone out of the community. They need to go back to their country where their laws are different from our laws.”
Johnson followed up by saying “We sending a message to all the Arab and the foreigner stores in North Charleston and the city of Charleston that we gonna stop you from taking money from our community and putting none back in it.”
He then told the media he would no longer let foreigners “rape our community anymore.” Johnson is an official spokesman for NAN, who speaks on behalf of the group all the time.
Johnson was flanked by family members of Tyrone Deon Mazyck. This is a 38-year-old black male who was arrested at the store for shoplifting on March 29th. Johnson says the men working at the store were too rough in apprehending Mazyck.
The owner of Andrew’s Discount Market says Mazyck pushed the workers and cut them with a knife. Police say they found a pocket knife at the scene.
After Johnson’s press conference, a group of black men and women staged an angry protest in front of Andrew’s Discount Market. The scene was reminiscent of Al Sharpton’s notorious protest of Freddie’s Fashion Mart in Brooklyn, NY. A protest in 1995 where one of the protesters returned to the store, ordered all black customers to leave, then shot eleven people and set the building on fire. Seven victims died. Sharpton accused the Jewish owners of Freddies Fashion Mart of exploiting the black community.
Manal al-Sharif was 14 when she burned her brother’s Back Street Boys cassettes, then her mother’s fashion magazines. She gave up drawing human figures and reading her prized Agatha Christie novels — forbidden, she had learned, under the puritanical strain of Islam sweeping through her native Saudi Arabia at the time. All kinds of things were forbidden for women and girls, she had also learned: no plucking your bushy eyebrows, no parting your hair fashionably to the side, no revealing your face in public.
The one thing she could not destroy was a plastic bag of family photographs that her mother had stashed in her bedroom. She found them, years later, after her mother had died. There was a photo of herself, in a red dress for Eid; another of her mother, in a calf-length skirt she had stitched herself; another of her dad, barechested, for the hajj.
“I’m so happy she hid them from me,” al-Sharif said the other day, scrolling through the images she had uploaded on her phone. “I thought we didn’t have any.”
Al-Sharif, 38, has undergone a radical change of heart since those Salafi firebrand days. She is now best known for challenging the laws and mores that keep women down in Saudi Arabia, including what she considers the kingdom’s infantilising restrictions on the right of women to drive.
Her first book, Daring to Drive: A Saudi Woman’s Awakening, published this week by Simon & Schuster, is a memoir of her political coming of age. It is equally a portrait of tumult and tyranny in Saudi Arabia over the last four decades — and the kingdom’s vexing relationship with the United States.
I met al-Sharif in Norway, at a human rights conference in the capital, Oslo, in late May, as the Trump family was visiting her country. Speaking to women in the Saudi capital, Riyadh, Ivanka Trump called the country’s progress on women’s rights “very encouraging,” even as she acknowledged that “there’s still a lot of work to be done.”
Al-Sharif found the appraisal insulting. She pointed to the case of her friend Mariam al-Otaibi, detained since April for her campaign against a policy that requires a woman to obtain the permission of a male guardian to work, study or travel, regardless of how old she is. Al-Sharif wears a blue plastic wristband in support of the campaign to end the guardianship system. “#IAmMyOwnGuardian,” the wristband reads.
“What type of progress in women’s rights?” she said. “I wish she was more specific so I wouldn’t feel insulted. If you don’t want to support us, just stay quiet. Don’t praise. You’re making it worse for us.”
Al-Sharif was born at home in 1979, the second daughter of a Saudi father and a Libyan mother. They lived in a cramped apartment in Mecca, Saudi Arabia’s holiest and most religiously conservative city. Her father drove a taxi. Her mother stitched their clothes from designs she had copied from fashion magazines. There wasn’t always running water. There was a lot of abuse: her father beating her mother, her sister beating her, and later her first husband beating her. Lots and lots of beatings.
Her generation was bound by a rigid form of Islam. She remembers religious leaders coming to lecture on her school’s public address system. Leaflets were passed out in the streets, prescribing what and what not to do.
An elderly aunt who had always worn colourful traditional Saudi gowns suddenly began to cloak herself in a head-to-toe black abaya, because her children told her to. Her mother took down from the bedroom wall a decorative hand-stitched canvas of a woman, bathing. Photos vanished from their apartment.
Being true to that sort of doctrine, as she recalled it, required hating the infidel. “My generation, born in the ‘70s and ‘80s, we were all radicalised,” she said. “You give up so much to follow these rules. It gets under your skin.” It left her skin, slowly.
Then there was September 11. She was appalled that the extremist doctrine she grew up in had spurred 19 hijackers — 15 from Saudi Arabia — to kill so many people. She had had enough of the hate. Inside Saudi Arabia, the rules were — and remain — particularly onerous for women.
Al-Sharif needed her father’s permission to enter university; she studied computer science. She needed his permission to apply for a job; she was hired as an information security specialist at Aramco, the Saudi oil company. She needed his permission to travel abroad for a business trip, and to get a passport.
Piers Morgan has accused Tommy Robinson, the former English Defence League leader, of "sounding like a bigoted lunatic".
He was interviewing Robinson on Good Morning Britain on Tuesday morning in the wake of the of the Finsbury Park attack.
As Robinson held up a copy of the Koran, Morgan told him: “Show some damn respect for people’s religious beliefs.
“You’re sounding like a complete lunatic. You’re sounding like a bigoted lunatic. You’re stirring up hatred.”
However, Robinson said: “This book is the reason we are in such a mess.”
The television presenter responded: “We’re in this mess because people take Islam, they are terrorists and they abuse the nature of Islam and… perpetrate evil.”
Robinson, whose birth name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, refused to accept Islam was a religion.
Daily Mail reports that Barber was initially ecstatic to rehome Mohammed, who claimed to be a persecuted Sundanese political refugee. The Muslim migrant told Barber that he was granted asylum status after sneaking into the UK through people-smugglers and, after being detained by Italian authorities, freely traveled to Britain as a refugee. Soon, however, the truth surfaced.
Barber explained that Mohammed became belligerent and aggressive, trashed her home, began smuggling drugs into his room, ran up her internet bill downloading excessive amounts of pornography, and continuously abused the taxpayer-funded medical and welfare benefits he was so generously given. Mohammed informed Barber that although she owned the house, he was going to “treat her like his mother,” which entailed her acting as his personal chef, maid, and dry-cleaner…
Then came the kicker. When Mohammed discovered that Barber was going to publish a memoir about her ordeal to “show readers you don’t have to be a saint to take in a refugee — you just have to have a spare room,” he flew into a rage and mocked her stupidity by confessing that he’s not a real refugee but a welfare leech who comes from a wealthy family.
Imagine my surprise (spoiler: I’m not). Time and again we are learning about these kinds of abuses in Europe and around the world. While there are people suffering from the war in Syria, hundreds if not thousands of “refugees” are abusing the system. So-called children turn out to be grown men, who go on to harass, harm, and sometimes even kill the families that welcome them into their homes.
This man admits he only came to Europe to abuse their benefits. Because if he stayed in his homeland, you know, he’d actually have to work for his food.
Yet because of the political correctness and stupidity of England and the rest of Europe, leeches like Mohammed are destroying their societies.
But will the people of Europe—and their leaders—stand up to this kind of insanity? Not likely.
Sadly, she gained no wisdom from the experience that will do her any service, ultimately affirming that she’s hoping to take in yet another refugee in the future. In fact, Barber seems to think that vowing to only rehome “much more deserving” migrants will prevent this and worse from happening again.
Like most liberals, Barber built up this fantasy in her mind of taking in a poor, destitute family of sweet, innocent people. People who would worship this wise, liberal woman for her generosity. Even when faced with the reality that such people do not exist, she clings to this obsession.
The UN Refugee Agency reports at the time of this article’s publishing that only 6.5 percent of migrant arrivals are Syrian. A whopping 72.5 percent are men, although this figure doesn’t take into account the recent report from Sweden which confirmed that age testing proves 75 percent of child refugees are also adults.
It’s like an entire Continent of people are marching off a cliff into oblivion. They willingly expose themselves to death and destruction, just to virtue signal their righteousness.
Rep. Steve Scalise got a shout-out from U2 frontman Bono during one of the band's concerts, according to a video tweeted Tuesday night from the Louisiana Republican's account.
Scalise remains hospitalized in serious condition at MedStar Washington Hospital Center, following last week's shooting incident during congressional baseball practice at a park in Alexandria, Virginia.
"Thanks Bono & @U2," reads the tweet on Rep. Scalise's page, which was signed by "#TeamScalise."
"You've been through some troubling days here with the shooting in Alexandria," Bono says on-stage in the video. "We are so grateful that Congressman Scalise and his comrades made it through. So grateful. We hold them up, as love holds us all up."
Lisa Durden had a fiery debate with Tucker Carlson defending a gathering of Black Lives Matter devotees that banned white people, but then found that she was suspended from her teaching position at Essex County College in Newark, New Jersey. Durden blames the controversial appearance for her suspension despite she had been on other Fox News shows previous to that one.
In the combative segment TheBlaze reported previously, Durden mocked white people saying, “What I say to that is boo-hoo-hoo, you white people are angry because you couldn’t use your ‘white privilege’ card to get invited to the Black Lives Matter’s all-black Memorial Day celebration! Wow!”
When Durden tried to return to Essex County College to teach mass communication and popular culture and two speech courses, she was told to report to Human Resources after canceling her classes.
Durden received a letter from Jeffrey Lee, vice president for academic affairs, saying that she was suspended indefinitely. Although it didn’t specifically mention the appearance on the Tucker Carlson show as a reason for the dismissal, Durden says administration officials cited it when speaking to her.
According to Durden, Human Resources officials told her that someone complained that she had associated herself with the college while on the show. She says she never did that on the show, which TheBlaze posted here.
Despite the interviewer accurately pointing out that 70% of potential threats reported to the UK's counter-terrorism apparatus are Islamic, incumbent Shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott (Labour Party) seems to insist that our counter-terrorism resources should be spent on right-wing extremists in order to keep things "balanced".
Well, I'm sure some balance WOULD make sense... if right-wing extremists were committing an equal number of the terrorist attacks in the UK. All Abbott seems to care about, however, is making sure that the UK continues to ignore possible Islamist radicals.
CNN has spent decades creating fake news in order to manipulate the public into believing they are an actual news source.
However, this compilation proves that the news agency is nothing more than a propaganda outlet that generates fake news stories in order to spurn outrage from its viewers.
Watch as segment after segment so just how far that is willing to go in order to manipulate the public by producing fake news stories. From fake war stories to political slander jobs, CNN has taken part in creating all of them.
A mother has been arrested after cops say she fatally stabbed her 4-year-old daughter. Investigators say 34-year-old Laquita Lewis texted her family to apologize for doing "something bad" to the little girl. The family members then contacted police, who arrived at a Houston apartment later to find Fredericka Allen dead. Police believe Lewis stabbed the girl multiple times in the chest and left her on the floor of the master bedroom to die.
Labour MP Rushanara Ali has called for marches by extremist groups be banned – but only singled out right wing demonstrators in her call for legislation.
The Labour Member of Parliament for Bethnal Green and Bow made the comments Monday evening during an appearance on Sky News. Ms. Ali referred specifically to the English Defence League and the far right group Britain First saying that demonstrations from both groups should be banned in London.
Ali said that the government needed to “redouble their efforts” when it came to tackling extremism.
“We have seen over the years many marches here in the East End and around the country by organisations like the English Defence League and more recently by British [Britain] First,” she said.
Without naming names Ali said that certain individuals were stoking up hatred. Earlier Monday evening, UK political blogger Guido Fawkes singled out EDL founder Tommy Robinson, comparing him to Islamic hate preacher Anjem Choudary who is currently in prison for links to Islamic radicals.
Watch as a liberal reporter attempts to attack the State Department's Heather Nauert for taking 6 hours in order to update the press in the situation involving Otto Warmbier's Health.
Apparently this reporter was silent during the year plus the Obama administration was completely silent on the issue of Warmbier's Health.
Looks like yet another attempt at the lying liberal media to paint the Trump administration as slow to update the people, the same liberal media that ignored the situation for an entire year.
English theoretical physicist and cosmologist, Professor Stephen Hawking had a clear message for audiences at the Starmus Festival in Trondheim, Tuesday, saying " I am convinced that humans need to leave earth". Hawking detailed the challenges we face if we remain earth bound: "resources are being drained at an alarming rate, we have given our planet the disastrous gift of climate change, rising temperatures, reduction of the polar ice caps, deforestation" positing that to find a home elsewhere in the galaxy may be "the only thing that saves us from ourselves". Hawking said he was "not denying the importance of fighting climate change and global warming, unlike Donald Trump" but he had hopes the race for a home in space would "unite competitive nations in a single goal to face a common challenge for us all."
If you like your healthcare provider you can keep your healthcare provider… provided you pay a whopping 60% rate hike starting next year.
The Houston Chronicle is reporting that Blue Cross Blue Shield has requested a 60% rate increase in 2017 in Texas following complaints from the company that it is “losing money in the federal health exchanges because some customers have proven more costly to cover than anticipated.”
In other words, the cost of insuring people under the so-called “Affordable” Care Act is going to force prices to skyrocket to potentially unaffordable levels for everyone.
According to filings listed on healthcare.gov, Blue Cross and Blue Shield seeks increases between 57.33 percent and 59.35 percent for two of its Blue Advantage Plus plans. A Blue Advantage Health Maintenance Organization Plan is asking for a 58.6 percent hike…
In a country where the cost of living is going up on virtually all fronts but wages and jobs are not increasing, exactly who is going to be able to afford this insane rate hike? And that’s just to pay for the insurance in case you get sick…
According to the report, it is unclear what will happen if the rate hike request is not granted. When the same company requested a 51% increase in rates in New Mexico last year and the request was denied, the company simply withdrew all healthcare plans from the entire state.
It’s a domino effect. Obamacare is imploding the nation’s health care system.
Insurers across the nation, including Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas, have complained vigorously that they are losing money in the federal exchanges as some customers have proven more costly to cover than anticipated.
Blue Cross Blue Shield isn’t the only company that has been reporting large profit losses due to Obamacare. UnitedHealthcare has reported losses of $650 million. Humana reported a 46% loss in the first quarter of 2016 alone.
A van driver has been killed after migrants dragged several huge tree trunks onto a motorway near the French port of Calais. His Polish-registered van burst into flames when it crashed into a truck that braked suddenly to avoid the roadblock. Nine Eritrean migrants were arrested after French authorities found them hiding in one of the trucks halted by the tree trunks.

Police say an airport officer was stabbed in the neck Wednesday morning at Bishop International Airport in Flint.
The officer was taken to the hospital. Michigan State Police said the officer is in critical condition.
Police identified the injured officer as Lt. Jeff Neville. Bishop International Airport was evacuated and is closed.
Police said a suspect has been taken into custody. The airport released the following statement:
"All passengers are safe and are being evacuated at this time. Please check with your airline for potential cancellations or delays."
The FBI is leading the investigation. The Flint City Hall began operating under heightened security in an abundance of caution after the incident.
"Right now we are still awaiting more information about the situation at Bishop Airport this morning," Flint Mayor Karen Weaver said. "My thoughts and prayers are with all of our law enforcement officers who work to service and protect us each and every day. I want the public to know that several agencies are involved and working to ensure the situation is under control. However, at this time we are taking extra precautions just to be safe."
A station employee who witnessed the attempted attack on Brussels Central Station on Tuesday said the attacker screamed 'God is greater' in Arabic. Rough cut (no reporter narration).
An armed Russian fighter jet flew within five feet of a US recon aircraft over the Baltic Sea, officials told NBC Nightly News. These intercepts can be common, but unsafe incidents are rare.
Belgian troops shot dead a suspected suicide bomber in Brussels Central Station on Tuesday night after he set off a small explosion. Shots could be heard inside the city's busy station as troops moved in to "neutralise" the suspect who, according to reports, was wearing an explosives belt. The station and the adjacent historic city centre were packed with tourists and the area was evacuated as police set up a security cordon at about 9pm local time. “There was an explosion around a person. That person was neutralised by the soldiers that were on the scene,” a police spokesman said. “The police are in numbers at the station and everything is under control.” The Terror Events monitoring site said multiple witnesses and sources claimed that the perpetrator shouted “Allahu Akhbar” (“God is Great”). Eric Van Der Sypt, a federal prosecutor, later said the small blast was being treated as a terrorist attack. He said the man's identity remained unknown on Tuesday night. The Belgian capital has been on high alert for more than 18 months since Brussels-based Islamic State militants carried out attacks in Paris that killed 130 people in November 2015 and bombed Brussels airport and the city’s metro in March last year. Pictures shared on social media showed what appeared to be a small explosion inside the station. Passengers fled in panic. Trains into the station, which is one of the busiest in Belgium serving the northern and southern suburbs of Brussels, were stopped as police and army deployed in large numbers. Within 30 minutes of the blast police issued a statement on Twitter to reassure panicking residents. “Incident in Brussels central station with a citizen. Situation under control but please follow instructions,” it said. Het Laatste Nieuws, the most-read daily paper in Belgium, cited informed sources saying a man was lying on the ground with wires coming out of his clothes. There were no other casualties reported. Ellen Van Cutsem, a fashion and beauty blogger who narrowly escaped injury in the incident, described being ushered from the scene. “I managed to escape with the help of police and military,” she wrote. "[There was] a lot of smoke, complete panic.”
Police have arrested a man after responding to reports of an attack at Regent's Park Mosque in north west London. Officers were called at around 1.20am and found the man waving "an item", which was later found to be a shoe horn taken from the mosque. The suspect was hit by a Taser, arrested on suspicion of affray and taken into custody at a central London police station. Nobody was injured in the incident, which is not being treated as terrorism. A Met Police spokesman said: "The item being waved was found to be a shoe horn taken from the mosque. "The incident is not being treated as terrorism-related at this time. Officers are keeping an open mind regarding any motivation for the incident." Anyone with information can call Westminster police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111. The incident comes amid heightened tensions in the capital following a terrorist attack at a Finsbury Park mosque on Sunday night. Worshippers were hit by a van near the Muslim Welfare House mosque in north London. Darren Osborne, 47, was arrested early on Monday on suspicion of commission, preparation or instigation of terrorism, including murder and attempted murder. The attack unfolded as a man who had been taken ill was receiving first aid from the public near the mosque, where people had been saying Ramadan night prayers. The van was driven at people who were helping him. The man was pronounced dead at the scene and paramedics took nine other people to three London hospitals while two others were treated for minor injuries.
Police reportedly clashed with youths in the Stamford Hill area of north London, in the early hours of Wednesday morning. The clashes are said to have involved weapons including machetes.
A pervert who said 'I knew this would happen to me' as he was confronted by online paedophile hunters has been sentenced. Kenny Smith, 48, spent months speaking to 'Katie Summers', a person he believed was a 15-year-old girl, on Facebook and dating website Badoo. But when he attempted to meet her at a McDonalds in Sunderland, Tyne and Wear on July 3 last year, after driving 95 miles from his previous address in East Yorkshire, he was confronted by a member of Guardians of the North and was arrested.
FAIRFAX, Va. — What was supposed to be a morning of prayer and reflection in the Islamic holy month of Ramadan ended in tragedy when 17-year-old Nabra Hassanen was fatally attacked as she headed back to a Virginia mosque after enjoying a pre-dawn meal with friends.
Hassanen died of blunt force trauma to her upper body after 22-year-old Darwin Martinez Torres assaulted her with a baseball bat early Sunday in what police have described as a road rage incident in suburban Washington, authorities said Monday.
Police said Martinez Torres attacked the girl after getting into a fight with another teen in the group and they have found no evidence to suggest Hassanen’s killing was a hate crime.
“Nothing indicates that this was motivated by race or by religion. It appears the suspect became so enraged over this traffic argument that it escalated into deadly violence,” Fairfax County Police Spokeswoman Julie Parker said.
Hassanen was with a group of as many as 15 other teens who had left their Sterling-area mosque between Ramadan prayers to get food at a McDonald’s, Parker said.
Kung Fu master Wu Song showed off his creepy talents including pulling a snake through his nose and mouth and carrying buckets of water with his eyelids, in Chendu, Monday. Song said he began practicing as young as 12 years-old and was taught by several Kung Fu masters. He stated that when learning his snake talent, he first had to tame the snake, which he said was poisonous, and get it used to his smell. The Kung Fu master is also able to lift heavy objects, such as buckets full of water and pull people on a trolley, using hooks hanging from his eyelids. Song hopes in his future that his son will master the same talents. However his son Xiao Yong was less enthusiastic saying, "I should practice a lot. To be honest, it makes me really uncomfortable." SOT, Wu Song, Kung Fu master, (Mandarin): "This snake is also a poisonous snake, the biggest difficulty is to tame it. Snakes will judge everything with their sense of smell, it is difficult for it to get used to my smell." SOT, Wu Song, Kung Fu master, (Mandarin): "Now I want to my son, Xiao Yong, to have the skill." SOT, Xiao Yong, Wu Song's son (Mandarin): "Ordinary people cannot do it. In order to inherit the techniques, I should practice a lot. To be honest, it makes me really uncomfortable." SOT, Miss Li, local villager (Mandarin): "The nose is too small for the big snake to go through. It's strange, really."

Guns, knives, and mace are flying off the shelves in Germany. With millions of young Arab and African males entering the country, the peace has been broken. No one walks about at night except in groups. Rape and other crimes have crept into the countrysides. No one feels safe any longer. With the rise of Sharia politics, civil war is now inevitable...
