During the Portland Pride Parade on Sunday in Portland Oregon, a group known as the Hell Shaking Street Preachers were preaching on the corner of Broadway and Burnside. While they were preaching, a young AntiFa member, commonly referred to as “Brady” approached them and pepper sprayed two of the street preachers. Since we do not know his full, or actual name, he will be referred to as “Child Antifa” in this article.
After he walked away from the Police, as you will see in the police report below, Child AntiFa traveled down to the Pride Festival and vandalized a Portland Police recruitment booth where he, and his friend, were both arrested.
According to a source directly involved with with the case, District Attorney Marie Atwood has dropped charges against Child AntiFa for attacking one of the street preachers because the “Victim Was Not Injured Enough.” However, she is going through with the other Street Preacher who required medical attention.
The District Attorney has also placed a no contact order on Child AntiFa. He is not allowed to come into contact with the street preachers, nor is he allowed to participate in any protesting.
Child AntiFa is well known to police and conservatives in Portland Oregon. He has been involved in many different confrontations between AntiFa and Conservatives. In the video below, you can see him attempting to debate Patriot Prayer founder Joey Gibson.
Video of a woman demanding a "white doctor" for her son at a walk-in clinic in Mississauga, Ont. has gone viral, sparking outrage across the country.
The video, which was recorded by a witness and posted online, shows the woman repeatedly demanding to see a white doctor in a four-minute argument with staff and patients at the clinic.
"I would like to see a white doctor," the woman says at the beginning of the video, to a member of the clinic staff in the waiting room. Her son, who appears to be approximately eight years old, can be seen sitting quietly beside her.
"You're telling me there's not one white doctor in this whole entire building?" she says.
The clinic staffer can be heard explaining that a white pediatrician will be in at 4 p.m., but this does not appear to satisfy the woman. She continues to complain, claiming that she waited five-and-a-half hours to see a "brown doctor" whom she says did not help her child with his chest pains.
"He was not speaking English. His teeth were brown. I do not need his help," she says in the video.
The woman's complaints quickly draw the attention of others in the waiting room who accuse her of being racist. Several also suggest she take her child to a hospital, but she refuses, answering the suggestions with a racist slur.
The woman becomes more agitated as the four-minute video progresses, eventually approaching the desk to repeat her demands for a white doctor.
"Oh my God, what type of horrible country do I live in?" she says in the video. "Being a white person in this country, I should just shoot myself."
Later in the video, she appears to back off her requirement that the doctor be white, and instead asks for one who was born in Canada.
"My kid is part not-white, so can we get somebody to see him that at least speaks English?" she says. "I spoken (sic) English. We want somebody Canadian to see him."
Hitesh Bhardwaj, who recorded the video in the waiting room, says the incident shocked him.
"Seeing it so openly, without any fear, in front of so many people, without even fearing that someone can report her – it was really shocking," he told CTV Toronto.
Bhardwaj, who immigrated to Canada from India five years ago, says he had "no doubt" that what happened at the clinic was wrong. He added that the incident troubled him "for the rest of the day."
"it was a mixed feeling of being angry being frustrated," he said.
He can be heard arguing with the angry mother toward the end of the video, telling her that a doctor doesn't need to be white to speak English.
A young woman also confronts the mother at an earlier point in the video.
"Your child clearly has more issues with you being his mother than him needing to see a doctor," the young woman says. "You are extremely rude and racist."
Bhardwaj hailed the young woman for her courage in intervening. "There was a very brave young girl who came right up to her face and said that you are racist and you shouldn't be doing those things," he said.
The encounter ended without further incident, and the woman was escorted out of the waiting room.
Peel police say they were called to the clinic Sunday afternoon for a "disturbance."
Const. Mark Fischer said the caller reported a woman who was "being verbally aggressive" and demanding a "white doctor."
"The officer found that no criminal offence has been committed or was in the process of being committed," Fischer told CTV Toronto.
A doctor at the clinic eventually treated the boy, police said
Watch as British MP Daniel Hannon is repeatedly heckled while giving a speech about limiting the power of the European Union during a EU parliament session.
Listen closely as he has repeatedly told to stop talking about limited government during his speech was standing among a group of power-hungry politicians intent on controlling all of Europe through an ever-growing government.
According to Hammou Laamrani...
The Arab region is an example of climate-security risks and climate-induced migration. Climate change can contribute to a cycle of fragility by affecting the availability of water, food, land, and other crucial resources. Scarcities and price spikes add to existing challenges that trigger conflicts and violence. Hammou Laamrani, long-standing field expert, and Advisor to the GIZ for 'Adaptation to Climate Change in the Water Sector in the MENA Region' emphasizes why climate change needs to be linked to human security. To successfully implement development projects, one has to realize that climate is an issue of security, stability and prosperity.
"Actually, the Arab region is a lab example of impacts of climate change and environment change is impacting livelihoods: mass migration and conflicts. Implications not only on the Arab region but on peace and stability worldwide, this is a reality. The region is in a development impasse, by all means. Climate change is now surely going to be triggering and magnifying those existing risk factors for human security and for peace and security worldwide.
We have seen over the last few years, climate-induced migration internally and that has triggered conflict and civil wars. Those have in final impacts on migration beyond the borders – be it in the region or outside the region. I think we are witnessing today a first generation of climate impacts on livelihoods with implications on peace and stability in the region and beyond the region.
So far, in terms of policy, climate change is more of a development issues. It is not yet framed in the nexus climate change and security. We have not seen the same level of engagements to put climate change at the same level of the fight against terrorists for example which is a security issue. In that way, we have to work on awareness raising at the policy level but also at the practitioner’s level. We also need to bring together the regions and see what are the learning opportunities between the Arab region and other regions that are already ahead of us in linking climate change to security and stability.
The third element is that we need a new generation of competences and capacities that can move from the framing of the nexus “climate change and security” to implementation and do things on the ground – and do them with this perspective of: climate change is not only a development issue – it is also a security, stability and prosperity issue in the region."
A Kentucky man who acknowledged threatening President Barack Obama in a poem has been sentenced to nearly three years in prison.
Johnny Logan Spencer apologized for writing the poem, which described a fatal sniper shooting of the president.
The 28-year-old said in federal court in Louisville on Monday that he was upset about his mother's death and had fallen in with a white supremacist group that had helped him kick a drug habit.
U.S. District Judge Joseph H. McKinley Jr. called Spencer's writing of the poem an extremely dangerous thing. Spencer will be on supervised release for three years after he completes the 33-month sentence.
The poem, titled "The Sniper," was posted on a website in 2007 and again in 2009 after Obama took office.
A new viral video making the rounds is confusing the hell out of a lot of people who are now learning about the horrors of “ecosex.”
The video, uploaded to Facebook by In the NOW, begins with the words, “there are humans that ‘f**k’ nature” and shows hippies literally rubbing dirt on themselves and licking trees.
One woman can be seen sensually shoving dirt into her mouth before the words “ecosexuals consider earth to be a lover not a mother” appear onscreen.
“They even perform ‘weddings,'” the video continues, showing a mass congregation of “ecosexuals” marrying “anything natural, from rocks to mountains and seas.”
The clip goes on to state that “ecosexuals believe their ‘faith’ will help environmentalism be taken more seriously.”
A Boynton Beach toddler found a loaded pistol in his “My Little Learning” toy box while officials were investigating his home for possible child neglect.
The 3-year-old boy wanted to bring out his toys while officers were in his home, according to a police report. His toy box had several small books in it, but while officers were talking to an adult in the house, the toddler pulled out a black 9mm semi-automatic pistol. One officer immediately took the gun and found a bullet was in the chamber with the safety off.
Rosalyn Faniel, 34 of Boynton Beach, who the officers came to investigate for possible child neglect, said the gun wasn’t hers and she didn’t know it was in the apartment, the report said.
While searching the home, the officers also found a yellow box of 9mm ammunition on top of the refrigerator, next to a black scale and a pink makeup bag filled with six plastic bags of white and pink powder, the report said. The powder tested positive for oxycodone and weighed 0.6 grams in total.
Faniel was arrested on a charge of child neglect Tuesday, and her bail was set at $3,000, according to online court records. She was released from jail Wednesday.
She was also charged with failure to appear in court and violating release conditions, the records said. An additional $500 was added to her bail for violating release conditions. She is scheduled to appear before Circuit Judge Charles Burton on July 13.
Recently a protest held by refugees against “monotonous” Italian food was “excessive”, especially at a time when thousands of Italians go hungry, the president of a police organization told The Local.
“There are thousands of Italians living in poverty and who aren’t even eating one meal a day, let alone two or three,” he said.
For two days, a group of about 40 asylum-seekers staying at a refugee centre in the Veneto province of Belluno refused to eat the “pasta with tomato sauce, bread and eggs” meals they were given and called to be fed food from their own countries, Libero Quotidiano reported.
To reinforce their point, they blocked a street with a wooden bench, put their lunch on the ground along with bags of clothes and threatened to leave the centre in La Secca, a hamlet in Ponte nelle Alpi.
They reportedly said “we do not eat this stuff”.
The refugees, said to have been staying at the centre for the past four months, also reportedly slashed the tires of cars belonging to staff working there in protest against living conditions.
Sam, a migrant from Gambia who has been staying at a centre on the outskirts of Rome for almost a year, told The Local that the food, which mainly consists of pasta, “is not good” and that some have started making their own meals.
“We need the diet from our country,” he said.
Over 28 Million Africans have been enslaved in the Muslim world during the past 14 centuries While much has been written concerning the Transatlantic slave trade, surprisingly little attention has been given to the Islamic slave trade across the Sahara, the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean.
While the European involvement in the Transatlantic slave trade to the Americas lasted for just over three centuries, the Arab involvement in the slave trade has lasted fourteen centuries, and in some parts of the Muslim world is still continuing to this day. A comparison of the Muslim slave trade to the American slave trade reveals some interesting contrasts.
While two out of every three slaves shipped across the Atlantic were men, the proportions were reversed in the Muslim slave trade. Two women for every man were enslaved by the Muslims.
While the mortality rate for slaves being transported across the Atlantic was as high as 10%, the percentage of slaves dying in transit in the Transsahara and East African slave trade was between 80 and 90%!
While almost all the slaves shipped across the Atlantic were for agricultural work, most of the slaves destined for the Muslim Middle East were for sexual exploitation as concubines, in harems, and for military service.
Attorneys Jared and Elizabeth Beck of the DNC Fraud lawsuit publicly announced today via Facebook live stream that they had filed a motion to the court seeking an order of protection. Jared Beck spoke, explaining that the decision was based in part on the unusual deaths of Shawn Lucas, Beranton Whisenant, and Seth Rich, as well as threats and bizarre phone calls the plaintiffs and counsel had received.
Beck said in the video which can be viewed below: “After much consideration and deliberation, we have concluded that it is time to bring these concerns to the court’s attention. Today we filed a motion asking judge William Zloch to provide protection of the plaintiffs, their counsel and their families, as well as all of the witnesses in the DNC Fraud lawsuit. In support of this motion, we have cited the following events: the untimely death of our process server Shawn Lucas, the unsolved murder of DNC employee Seth Rich.”
Beck went on to say, that he believed Mr. Rich might have been a potential witness in this case. He also cited the recent untimely death of attorney Beranton Whisenant in South Florida, as well as recent bizarre and disturbing conduct including threats, that have been directed at plaintiffs, counsel and their employees.
The motion provided via the Beck’s website JamPAC included the declaration of a plaintiff in the suit, who described allegations that her laptop computer had been tampered with, possibly by an individual who had illegally entered her home.
Today’s announcement comes after the Becks had reported receiving a voice-modulated phone ominous phone call whose caller ID number matched that of former DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz’ Aventura office. Disobedient Media reported on this event in addition to further anonymous calls made to the Beck’s pro-counsel Cullin O’brien.
Disobedient Media also noted questions raised by the suit in relation to the death of process server Shawn Lucas, who would have served as a federal witness for the Becks in the litigation process, as well as that of Seth Rich. Many believe that Rich is the individual who passed the DNC Leaks to Wikilkeaks before he was murdered in July last year.
Jared Beck described what he termed “threats” that the attorneys, plaintiffs and their employees had received, before mentioning an offer of protection that had been recently extended by the right-wing group The Oathkeepers.
The Harvard and Yale-educated attorneys litigating the class-action suit’s decision that it is necessary to seek legal protection from the courts is highly significant not only in the current suit but also in regards to the unusual deaths cited by the Becks in their motion. These deaths include that of former DNC staffer Seth Rich. If the court grants their motion, it could characterize the Democratic party establishment leaders as akin to mafia bosses rather than the heads of a political party.
Protests got heated during a meeting Monday night about sanctuary city status in Cudahy and immigration rights.
Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies were on standby outside the gathering as city residents and a group of protesters clashed.
Emotions ran high as opposing groups traded insults and screamed at each other before the meeting. During the meeting, the debate was heated as well, but 38 sheriff's deputies kept things from getting out of hand.
The Cudahy City Council meeting took place at Clara Park.
Counter-protesters claimed a group known as American Children First have disrupted council meetings in the past due to Cudahy's sanctuary city status, and they were back Monday night.
The counter-protest group called members of the community to gather and defend the city's status in a non-violent manner.
Mayor Chris Garcia said Cudahy is safer as a sanctuary city because people are more willing to report crimes without being afraid of being questioned about their immigration status.
"We're going to remain a sanctuary city, whether people like it or not," Garcia said. "It has made us one of the safest cities in California. This year we topped 45. We were 140 four years ago."
A town in Austria has refused to accept any more “refugees” after three migrants gang-raped a 15-year-old girl.
The young girl was making her way home on the evening of April 25th when she was grabbed and “brutally raped,” according to reports. The suspects are two men from Somali and one Afghan.
The town’s mayor responded to the incident by informing the government that Tulln would not be accepting any more refugees until further notice.
“For me, there is zero tolerance against asylum seekers who abuse their guest countries law. In view of what these criminals have done to the girl, the full severity of the law is required,” said Peter Eisenschenk.
Freedom Party Councillor Christian Hafenecker questioned why authorities did not inform the public about the incident “for almost a month,” putting people’s safety at risk.
“Countless cases already show that the migration of predominantly Muslim men under the cover of the asylum becomes an uncontrollable danger. It is therefore not at all clear why the Tulln’s population was not promptly warned by the police,” he said.
This is by no means the first time that Austria has been subjected to the “cultural enrichment” that newly arrived migrants bring.
An Iraqi refugee who raped a 10-year-old boy at a swimming pool in Vienna later had his conviction overturned because judges found that he believed the child had consented.
The migrant told arresting officers that his assault of the boy was a “sexual emergency” because he had not had sex in 4 months, and didn’t even try to flee the scene of the assault because he thought it was perfectly acceptable behavior.
Despite raping a 10-year-old boy, the refugee’s case will be re-tried and he is likely to get away with a lighter sentence simply because he claims that the child consented to the horrific attack.
Actress Amy Brenneman thinks the right has committed an injustice. They’ve paired pro-life with the term Christian. In a video done for the Lives of Women series, the star of “The Leftovers”, while being filmed in a church, started her PSA by saying, “I absolutely think the term ‘Christian’ has been stolen in 2017 in America by the ‘Christian Right.’” She then proceeded to say that while she has been extremely open about having an abortion when she was 21, it was time to re-state that, because of the rise of social media. Brenneman also expressed her anger with the pro-life community. “In the age of Twitter and Facebook, I was trolled pretty viciously.”
The actress talked about how her church was “prayerfully pro-choice,” and accepted and encouraged women who had had abortions. “I don’t feel like I’m in conflict with where I go every Sunday.” While she spoke about how her religion viewed women as moral agents, she neglected to speak about the idea that abortion is murder, or that the fetus that she had moral autonomy over was human. While Brenneman is known for her stance on Planned Parenthood and abortion, and has in the past encouraged women to ensure that unwanted babies are not born, her position is not unique. It mirrors the views of abortionist Willie Parker, who earlier this year released a memoir that told of his ambition to reconcile Christianity to abortion.
Unlike Parker, Brenneman is pretty sure she will not be able to achieve this goal. Why is that? In her video, she claimed that she was a victim of the hatred of the right. “I’m never gonna win those pro-life people over,” she told the camera. “They hate me, and they say horrible things about me, and I am in acceptance of that.” The Lives of Women is a project from Indigenous Media, who shares their videos on Facebook. Brenneman is just one of their many subjects.
CNN guest,Juliette Kayyem, is furious that even the Muslim Mayor of London refuse to immediately label the attack by a British citizen a terrorist attack.
"They'll never call a White Man a terrorist!" Kayyem says angrily while discussing the details of the terrorist attack.
This is how the fake news is made, continued… On Sunday, the Twitter account @HipHopsRevival posted a video (since deleted) alleging that law enforcement authorities tore a young boy away from his mother over a violation of “immigration laws.” As you can see, before it was deleted it was shared thousands of times... The officers in the video have since been identified as NYC Parks Enforcement officers, via former NYPD officer John Cardillo: "Hey HipHopsRevival, if you're going to lie, do better. Those are NYC Parks Enforcement officers. They don't enforce immigration laws." -- Whoops. We questioned the authenticity of the video immediately: Greg Pollowitz: "when was this video taken?"
But thousands did not, including the blue check-mark brigade. Here’s just a sample of the outrage caused by the Fake News: Alyssa Milano: "What can we do about this, @aclu???? This made my heart ache. Must. Do. Better" -- Sarah Silverman: "This is America. @gop @potus @MikePenceVP ARE YOU PROUD? Shame on y'all. Y'all make me sick. SO WHAT CAN I DO TO HELP CHANGE THIS MADNESS??" -- Nicolle Wallace: "I feel horror" -- Michael Skolnik: "This is a stain upon our country. A ripping of our nation’s heart. An attack upon our humanity. #IStandWithImmigrants" -- sarahdessen: "Oh, my God." -- Maggie Gyllenhaal: "Oh my god. This is sick. So broken. What can I do??" ---- Do better, guys.
LGBTQ activists in cities across the country are calling for city officials to create “rainbow crosswalks” to “honor the LGBTQ community.” -- “Rainbow crosswalks” are public crosswalks that have been repainted in rainbow colors, which have been adopted by the LGBTQ community as a symbol of greater acceptance and rights for LGBTQ causes and beliefs.
Activists are urging local lawmakers to create the crosswalks through the use of petitions. Currently, one of the cities targeted is Chicago. A petition is now circulating there that has garnered more than 4,000 signatures. According to the petition’s text, “Some cities, like San Francisco, have made LGBTQ people feel more at home by creating permanent rainbow crosswalks to honor the LGBTQ community. … This is one small thing that could be done to signal to one of the most marginalized communities in the country that we are here for them, we see them, and we support them.”
Washington, D.C., already installed temporary rainbow crosswalks honoring transgender persons earlier this year, and Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed announced this week the city will make its rainbow crosswalks permanent following the circulation of a petition that amassed more than 22,000 signatures. Reed said the crosswalks would be featured year-round in part to honor those who lost their lives in the 2016 Pulse Nightclub shooting in Orlando. … Philadelphia and San Francisco already have permanent rainbow crosswalks of their own, and petitions are now also circulating in and Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Milwaukee and New York City to install similar crosswalks, all of which would presumably be paid for by taxpayers.
Oh, great. Taxpayers get to foot the bill.
Russia has said it will treat US warplanes operating in parts of Syria where its air forces are also present as “targets” amid a diplomatic row caused by the downing of a Syrian jet.
The country’s defence ministry said it would track US-led coalition aircraft with missile systems and military aircraft, but stopped short of saying it would shoot them down.
A hotline set up between Russia and the US to prevent mid-air collisions will also be suspended.
“All kinds of airborne vehicles, including aircraft and UAVs of the international coalition detected to the west of the Euphrates River will be tracked by the Russian SAM systems as air targets,” the Russian Defence Ministry said in a statement.
The warning comes after a US F-18 Super Hornet shot down a Syrian army SU-22 jet on Sunday in the countryside southwest of Raqqa – the first such downing of a Syrian jet by the US since the start of the country’s civil war in 2011.
Washington said the jet had dropped bombs near US-backed forces but Damascus said the plane was downed while flying a mission against Isis militants.
Russia’s defence ministry said the suspension of its communication line with the Americans would begin immediately.
The US did not use its hotline with Russia ahead of the downing of the Syrian government warplane, said the ministry, which accused the US of a “deliberate failure to make good on its commitments” under the deconfliction deal.
CBS, always keeping it classy. CBS News: Was The Steve Scalise Shooting ‘To Some Degree Self-Inflicted’? -- From TownHall: CBS News’ Scott Pelley offered a commentary last week, calling the attacking congressional Republicans self-inflicted “to some degree,” so Rep. Scalise being shot was partially his fault. That’s classy. -- Clearly being classy is their NEW thing. JFC… You really just have to shake your head at this point. -- If a Democrat is shot, the shooter's politics are the problem. - If a Republican is shot, the victim's politics are the problem. -- Bingo. Yes, he skirt was too short you idiots at CBS. Victim blaming.
How about this headline: "Was the Finsbury Park van attack to some degree self-inflicted?" Ok, that won’t go over well … at all. Do they realize this is akin to blaming a woman for being raped if she wears a short skirt? They’re too busy shaming Scalise for getting shot to actually think about WHY.
Between blaming Republicans for the congressional shooting last week and attacking shooting victim Steve Scalise, the MSNBC host is on a roll.
Instead of taking the weekend to discuss heated political rhetoric following a left-wing extremist’s attack on GOP members of Congress, like much of the United States, MSNBC host Joy Reid decided to bash the victims of the attack.
Reid first attacked Rep. Steve Scalise, who was injured in the attack, over his congressional record in a tweet on Saturday.
Implying that Scalise somehow deserved his injuries due to his votes, Reid pointed out that the shooter was “a white man,” without mentioning his political affiliation.
She then highlighted the race and sexual orientation of one of the heroic police officers, who didn’t think twice about Scalise’s political affiliation before rushing to save his life.
Reid sent out her tweet as Scalise was fighting for his life in a hospital bed following the shooting.
Then, on her MSNBC show on Sunday morning, Reid turned on the targets of the attack, blaming Republicans for the conditions leading up to the shooting.
A GOP commentator on her show criticized both Republican and Democratic rhetoric in the wake of the attack, but Reid interjected, saying that only Republicans were to blame and Democratic rhetoric was justified.
Evan Siegfried, the GOP strategist, pointed out that Democrats had compared Republicans to the the Taliban and called them “evil” and “insensitive.”
“You don’t think it’s insensitive to cut Meals on Wheels?” Reid asked, not condemning other extreme Democratic rhetoric.
Reid argued that there is no moral “equivalency” between Republicans and Democrats, given GOP rhetoric.
“It does feel like you have people on the right, you have Republicans trying to sort of make themselves the victim. They seem to crave this idea of being the victims of hate,” she added.
“Why now are Republicans attempting to sort of make themselves the victims?” Reid asked, four days after a left-wing extremist attempted to murder GOP members of Congress.

Watch as a group of Muslim youth throw stones and pelt police attempting to enter one of their so-called no go zones.
The Muslim youth repeatedly throw stones and other objects that police that attempted to enter areas that are under the control of Muslims. This is just another example of how the Muslim youth are being used as front-line soldiers in order to keep out non-Muslims.

A man has died and several people have been injured after a van ploughed into pedestrians near a north London mosque.
Khalid Amin, an eyewitness, describes what he saw happen.
By Kay Wilson:
Dear Mr Khan,
This is not the first time I have written to you concerning events with a Jihadist and/or unbalanced agenda taking place in London. I hope that this time, my letter will warrant a response from you.
As a British-born survivor of Islamic terrorism, I am both flabbergasted and frankly outraged that you continue to give the green light to Islamic terrorism in London, by either telling your constituents that “terrorism is part and parcel of living in a big city,” and now, by ignoring a petition of almost 6,000 signatories protesting the Al-Quds Day March to be held in the city of London this Sunday, 18th June.
It hardly need be said, that your lack of action in allowing people who support Jihad to march through London, also stands to ignite antisemitism against the British Jewish community and more unabated hatred against Israel, the sole refuge for Jewish people in the Middle East.
I have never met you, so I am unable to ascertain if your lack of leadership concerning Islamic terrorism is due to personal passivity, disinterest or something else. Whatever it is, your abdication from your responsibility as Mayor of London, is not only deeply grievous to myself – a survivor of this Islamic terror the marchers endorse, but is also a slap in the face to the families of London’s and Manchester victims – whose blood has only just been mopped up from London’s streets.
In an interview that aired on Sunday, Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT), the outgoing House Oversight Committee chair, complained that the Trump administration has been worse than the Obama administration when it comes to fulfilling oversight requests from Congress.
“The reality is, sadly, I don’t see much difference between the Trump administration and the Obama administration. I thought these floodgates would open up with all the documents we wanted from the Department of State, the Department of Justice, the Pentagon,” Chaffetz told Sinclair Broadcast Group’s Sharyl Attkisson.
“In many ways, it’s almost worse because we’re getting nothing, and that’s terribly frustrating and, with all due respect, the attorney general has not changed at all,” the congressman continued. “I find him to be worse than what I saw with Loretta Lynch in terms of releasing documents and making things available. I just, that’s my experience, and that’s not what I expected.”
Chaffetz said that he had not been able to obtain any new documents pertaining to the Hillary Clinton email probe or Fast and Furious.
“We tried to issue subpoenas. We tried to hold people in contempt and the Obama administration said ‘no,’ and the Trump administration came in and did zero. Nothing. Nothing changed,” he told Attkisson.
The incident described below wasn’t really a hijacking, but the bus was violently attacked and prevented from traveling any further. And the intention of the attackers was almost certainly to hijack the bus for nefarious purposes.
A week ago today a coalition of free-speech activists held a demonstration on Parliament Hill against Motion 103 and the imposition of sharia law in Canada. As reported previously (see here and here), “anti-fascist” counter-demonstrators were out in force, and engaged in significant violence.
One of the free-speech groups had hired a bus to transport people to the demonstration. The bus made several stops, and at one of them they were blocked by antifas. The young thugs put up barriers, threw paintballs at the windshield of the bus, and spray-painted the side of it, including the driver’s mirrors. The driver was able to get the bus away from the immediate area of the antifas, otherwise it might have been taken hostage. As it was, it was no longer fit to make the trip to downtown Ottawa, and the passengers had to be transferred to multiple private vehicles.
It seems that the “anti-fascists” had managed to place a mole in the group on the bus. My guess is that some of the planning was done on social media, which the antifas were monitoring, and learned the bus’s itinerary. After the bus had escaped the vicinity of the would-be hijackers, a young red-haired woman among the passengers became frantic to disembark, screaming at the driver until she was let off. One must presume that this woman was a mole, and when she realized that her comrades were not going to commandeer the vehicle, she panicked.
The composite photo at the top of this post shows the young lady’s face. As far as I know, she has not yet been identified. She probably at least witnessed a conspiracy to commit felonious violence, so if you recognize this woman, please notify the Ottawa police or the RCMP.
Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” CNN contributor Bakari Sellers said the Republican heath care bill is a “travesty of justice,” being drafted by “13 all white males in the back room.”
Sellers said, “Even when you compare it to 2009, you had the Democratic party, the House Republican — House Democrats at that time under Nancy Pelosi’s leadership, they had over 20 hearings. You know, this took a year before it passed. So this is not comparable to what happened in 2009. But I’d just love to see Mitch McConnell, and everyone else just cloak themselves in such hypocrisy and the travesty and why we need more Republicans with courage like my colleague here to the right, and why we need more Republicans to stand up is because the Republican party right now is trying to take away health insurance from 23 million people, and they are literally drafting up a piece of legislation that affects one-sixth of our economy under the cover of darkness, which is 13 all white males in the back room.”
He added, “This is the problem that Americans have and why they distrust the process and why they distrust Democrats and Republicans alike, because we moved too fast in 2009, but the Republicans didn’t learn a lesson, and they are now the ones who have the ball, and it’s a travesty of justice.”
Religious leader Yousif al-Khoei said it was crucial to address the rise of Islamophobia and he condemned the media for its portrayal of the attack at Finsbury Park Mosque in London on Monday morning, stating that because the attacker was white he was not automatically called a terrorist.
Abu Hamza al-Masri, also known as Mustafa Kamel Mustafa or the Hook Hand, is an Egyptian cleric who came to the United Kingdom as a student and later joined the Finsbury Park Mosque as its imam in 1997. In an article in the Telegraph in 2007, Mahmood Hasan, a long-term trustee of the Finsbury mosque is quoted as describing Abu Hamza as someone who initially appeared to be God-sent. He was fluent in his English and Arabic linguistic skills and had adequate theological training. Further, he was willing to take on the role of the cleric at a meagre salary. However, over time the Egyptian Imam slowly revealed his real beliefs.
Hamza’s radical Islamic views soon made the Finsbury mosque a centre with strong links to extremism. From inside the premises of the mosque, Hamza preached a violent theology and attracted disciples both from within and from outside the UK. He opened up the mosque for other extremists to reside. Allegedly, Hamza did not just propagate extremist and violent messages but also trained his followers in the usage of ammunitions. In 2002, intelligence sources had revealed that weapons training using Kalashnikov AK-47s took place inside the Finsbury mosque.
Hamza’s views were supportive of Osama Bin Laden, the Taliban and the 9/11 attacks in the United States. In January 2002, Hamza was quoted as saying, “I ask God to grant long life to Osama Bin Laden.” The previous month, when he was asked if there was an earthly government he admired, he is believed to have replied the “coming Taliban hopefully.” He is also believed to have had links with the Al-Qaeda. Reportedly, he turned the Finsbury mosque into a recruitment centre for the Al-Qaeda, particularly for economic migrants from North Africa and the Middle East, who later travelled to training camps in Afghanistan.
In his lectures, Hamza criticised Muslim youth for enjoying the comforts of British life, while their brothers around the world suffered. He propagated the need for the establishment of a Khilafah or Islamic state and spoke of the need for training in violence to carry out Jihad. Over time he created some well-known names in the history of Islamic terrorism including the shoe bomb terrorist Richard Reid and the July 7 bomber Germaine Lindsay.
In 2003, the British police did a thorough investigation of the mosque and Abu Hamza was jailed in 2006 and later deported to the United States. Following the raid and the closure, the mosque was reopened in 2005 and ever since the trustees have been involved in brushing away the image of extremism that is still firmly attached to the mosque. Sunday’s attack, however, has once again brought to surface a reminder of the mosque’s links to extremism.
FINSBURY PARK Mosque, which has a history of links to terrorism worldwide, has tried in recent years to change its image to the outside world under new management.
The mosque, which is housed in a five-storey building next to Finsbury Park tube station in the London borough of Islington in north London, was opened in 1994 in a ceremony attended by Prince Charles.
The mosque became notorious when Abu Hamza al-Masri became the imam in 1997. Hamza, who had one eye and no hands and used hook devices, lied that the injuries were suffered when he fought for al-Qaeda against Russian forces in Afghanistan.
He preached a strict interpretation of Islamic law and was outspoken about acts of terrorism.
In a sermon he spoke about the need for Jihad: “Allah likes those who believe in Him who kill those who do not believe in Him. Allah likes that. So if you Muslims don’t like that because you hate the blood, there is something wrong with you.”
The mosque became a meeting point for militant Islam’s most notorious figures. Zacarias Moussaoui, 9/11’s alleged 20th hijacker, and shoe bomber Richard Reid, were among those to attend the mosque.
Hazam was suspended from Finsbury Park Mosque in April 2002 and sacked in February 2003 by the Charity Commission, a government body that regulates charities in England and Wales.
More than 100 officers from London Metropolitan Police raided and shut down the mosque in 2003 over the alleged bioterrorism plot to attack the London Underground rail system.
Abu Hamza al-Masri has been found guilty of supporting terrorism by a court in New York and sentenced to life in prison. But who is the man who became the most prominent radical cleric in the United Kingdom?
Born Mustafa Kamel Mustafa in Alexandria, Egypt, on 15 April 1958, Abu Hamza was the son of a naval officer and a primary school headmistress. He initially studied civil engineering before leaving for England in 1979.
In London, one of his first jobs was as a nightclub bouncer. He married a British woman who he says encouraged him to embrace Islam.
"I took time off from the clubs and I enjoyed it," he said at his trial in the US.
He decided to resume his studies at Brighton Polytechnic and gained a civil engineering degree, joining the Institution of Civil Engineers where he remained a member until 1994.
His marriage rapidly broke down but he later remarried and had seven children.
One of Abu Hamza's first major engineering contracts took him to the Royal Military Training Academy at Sandhurst. Technical drawings of the college were still in his home when he was arrested in 2004.
In the early 1980s the young Abu Hamza started to show an interest in Islam and politics. He was heavily influenced by the Iranian revolution.
Some Muslim thinkers were calling for Islamic states in Islamic lands. They had a military face in the Mujahideen fighters who, backed by the US, emerged to oppose the Soviet Union's occupation of Afghanistan.
What the van driver did was disgusting and this is never the answer, you cannot run people over in the street. but that shouldn't stop facts being pointed out. Preachers from Finsbury Park mosque have called called for the death of the West and our way of life for years.
The animals are brutally caught and then butchered not far from the beaches visited by more than 1 million Australians every year. Some of the animals are poisoned, posing a risk to human health, according to a leading toxicologist. Whilst eating dog meat is not illegal in Bali, killing animals cruelly or eating meat contaminated with poison is against the law, Animals Australia's campaign director Lyn White said. "The dog-meat trade breaches animal cruelty laws and food safety laws. That is a statement of fact," she said.
