The House will vote on a temporary spending package that includes $5 billion in funding for a southern border wall.
The House Rules Committee advanced the measure 8-2 Thursday, sending it to the House floor for a vote. The measure also includes about $8.7 billion in funding for states impacted by hurricanes and wildfires.
“I would anticipate we will move it very rapidly to the floor,” Rules Committee Chairman Pete Sessions, R-Texas, said.
Sessions predicted the House would “pass the bill,” but advised the rules panel to “be standing by.”
It’s not clear whether the House GOP actually has the votes to pass the measure with wall funding and lawmakers could end up taking another vote on a bill that excludes the wall funding.
The United Nations General Assembly affirmed what is called the “Global Compact on Refugees” on Monday. There were 181 UN member states voting in favor of approving the compact, with the United States and Hungary voting against and the Dominican Republic, Eritrea and Libya abstaining. On Wednesday, the General Assembly is scheduled to vote and approve, by a somewhat smaller margin, a separate global migration pact formally known as the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration. This compact was already adopted by 164 states at an international inter-governmental conference last week in Marrakech, Morocco. The United States opposes this compact as well.
Both the refugee and migration global compacts are said to be legally non-binding, although they purport to establish international “norms.” Globalists at the United Nations and elsewhere believe that such norms create, or broaden the scope of, a “universal” right, declared as such by all or a significant majority of the UN’s member states. As interpretations of norms acknowledging such rights are repeated in international bodies and incorporated into the laws or judicial rulings of more and more UN member states, they can then become a part of what international lawyers refer to as legally binding “customary international law,” whether there is a formal treaty or not.
The refugee and migration compacts state that they are guided by or rest on various international human rights legal instruments. The United States is not a party to a number of these instruments and does not consider itself legally bound by them, including the Convention on the Rights of the Child and the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights.
Appears they have a plan.
In Slovakia, only 6.2 per cent of its citizens reported crime, violence or vandalism in 2017, according to data from the Eurostat statistics office survey which is part of the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG 16) strategy.
The safest countries in the European Union are in order:
Croatia, with only 3 per cent of Croatians reporting crime, violence or vandalism in 2017. Poland, having only 5.4 per cent and third, again, Slovakia, with 6.2 per cent.
Slovakia has accepted very few refugees or migrants during the European migrant crisis and has no problems concerning terror, no-go zones or sex crimes.
The EU average is 11.6 per cent, CTK newswire reports, with Bulgaria bottoming out the list with 23.6 per cent of Bulgarians reporting crime, violence or vandalism. As high as that is, it has actually been dropping over the past three years since it peaked at a record 28.6 per cent in 2009.
So consider this: it is over 2,000 miles from Tegucigalpa, Honduras to Phoenix, Arizona. Hard to believe a bunch of people just randomly decided to pack a lunch and walk TWO THOUSAND MILES to anywhere. Where is this mob sleeping, using bathrooms, procuring food and water? https://t.co/waqZ1JWTS5

The number of migrant parents entering the United States with children has surged to record levels in the three months since President Trump ended family separations at the border, dealing the administration a deepening crisis three weeks before the midterm elections.
U.S. Border Patrol agents arrested 16,658 family members in September, the highest one-month total on record and an 80 percent increase from July, according to unpublished Homeland Security statistics obtained by The Washington Post.
Large groups of 100 or more Central American parents and children have been crossing the Rio Grande and the deserts of Arizona to turn themselves in, and by citing a fear of return, the families are typically assigned a court date and released from custody.
Looks like someone is getting tired of something
The Danish government will demolish around 1,000 houses in the heavily migrant-populated ghetto of Vollsmose and relocate residents to new areas.
The plan was announced by Danish Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen earlier in the year who said he wanted to combat the rise of parallel migrant societies forming in Denmark, Sveriges Radio reports.
The 21st century is reminding of us of some uncomfortable truths. Abroad, recent controversies over the rise of Chinese mercantilism, the specter of Iranian and North Korean nuclear weapons, tensions in the European Union, the calcified Palestinian question, mass migrations, and the resurgence of Islamic terrorism all offer a number of lessons. At home, just as instructive is the strange juxtaposition between Obama’s suave progressivism and Trump’s coarse conservatism.
The Western world is in turmoil largely because of the widening gap between what the people see as true and the “truth” that their governing classes impose on them for the purported greater moral good. The result is a schizophrenia like that seen before the collapse of the Soviet Empire, in which no one believed that the reality they lived had anything to do with the reality delivered by the media and the state. Trumpism and popular movements in Europe are simply symptoms of another problem that what the ruling elite said was true was often a lie.
“The asylum seekers had traveled in school buses under police escort to a beachfront rally in Tijuana, where a steel fence juts out into the Pacific Ocean. They sang the Honduran national anthem, and supporters on the San Diego side of the fence waved a Honduran flag.”
This is what that looks like:
George Ramos of Univision said on Tucker Carlson that America needs to do this because American drug addicts are are responsible for the problems in South and Central America.
That’s crap-for-brains thinking. The history of much of South and Central America is that of juntas and revolutions. The term ‘Banana Republic’ dated back to 1901, long before the drug epidemic. These nations got into drug production as a way for revolutionary forces to generate funding. The factions decided that selling drugs was better and more lucrative than fighting a revolution and a narco state stalemate occurred. MS-13 started as a El Salvadorian revolutionary force that became a drug cartel. But why let history get in your way.
So people on the Left are fighting to welcome in people who hop the fence to waive the flag and sing the anthem of their homeland on US soil. This is a cultural gulf that cannot be bridged.
I’m not sure what is going to break us first. An attempt at gun confiscation or the welcoming in of a wave of “refugees” so large that it collapses the infrastructure of a US state.
Today is the 73rd anniversary of the liberation of Dachau
I took a trip there in early ’91 after my war was over.
Even so long after the end of World War 2, the small grave plots with the little signs like ‘20,000 buried here’ sent shivers up the spine.
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — One of Puerto Rico’s deadliest months in recent years has closed, with 78 killings reported in January as the U.S. territory struggles with a surge in violent crime and growing discontent among thousands of police officers.
Puerto Rico’s homicide rate is roughly 20 killings per 100,000 residents, compared with 3.7 per 100,000 residents on the U.S. mainland.
Well, as long as they leave behind their blue state ideas on gun control.
The grass seemed way greener where the states were redder for many people living in blue states, as new data suggests hundreds of thousands of people fled Democratically dominated states in order to bring themselves to places that had less crime and lower taxes.
According to the Daily Caller, three states, in particular, saw a massive departure of Americans to the tune of 450,000, taking their wallets with them as they fled. This is leading to the problem of having no one around to pay the bills in these tax-heavy states.
The Daily Caller reported that taking the lead is New York:
The exodus of residents was most pronounced in New York, which saw about 190,000 people leave the state between July 1, 2016 and July 1, 2017, according to U.S. Census Bureau data released last week.
New York’s domestic out-migration during that time period was about the same as it was in the same time 2015 and 2016. Since 2010, the state’s outflow of just over 1 million residents has exceeded that of every other state, both in absolute terms and as a share of population, according to the free-market think tank Empire Center.
This is the height of liberal hypocrisy, when it’s ‘free-speech’ only if you agree with it.
YouTube has ‘quarantined’ a hard-hitting video on Europe’s migrant crisis released by Poland’s conservative government, as part the platform’s crackdown on “hate speech and violent extremism”.
The Polish Ministry of Interior and Administration’s video has been placed in a controversial state designed by YouTube to limit access to videos it says contain “supremacist” or “extremist” content, but which don’t break any of the platform’s rules.
Refugee admittance dropped drastically under the Trump administration.
Admission is down 87 percent in the first month of fiscal year 2018. The number dropped from 9945 refugees last fiscal year to 1242 this year.
Muslim refugee entry slowed from 45 percent to 23 percent.
President Trump has ordered “enhanced vetting” now that his ban on refugees on certain countries known to harbor terrorism has expired.
President Obama capped refugees per year at 110,000. Trump has lowered that number 45,000 for the fiscal year that started last month.
Growing up under Sharia law and in Islamist schools, we were taught that the highest level a person can reach is to be a mujahid. A mujahid is a person that God truly loves.
Once, I dared to ask what exactly the term mujahid meant. The imam said that a true mujahid is a person who does not just die defensively for protecting Allah’s values. A true mujahid, one who is most loved by God, is a person who acts offensively, including through violence, when he or she sees our religious values are being violated in any part of the world. That person is a true holy warrior, he explained.
That description has been echoed through the halls of schools, and whispered into the minds of children. It has followed me throughout my life. Now, as I reflect on the first time this thirst for violence was explained to me, an eerie reality comes into focus. If the teachings of these radical imams are accurate, then the rate of mujahidin in the West appears to be increasing far higher in the West than in the East.
As some clamored to reach this ideal, we were told that one major indicator of whether the number of mujahdin is increasing or decreasing in a society is to look at the rate of those who are becoming martyrs. The higher the rate, the more mujahidin are there, and the more satisfied God is. It was a powerful message delivered to young, impressionable minds, that were eager to please and learn.
Growing up in the Middle East, within Muslim-majority nations, I rarely heard of radical Islamists committing terrorist acts in the region. But in the few years that I have lived in the West, I have regularly heard of bombing and suicide missions committed by radical Islamists. Their targets have been Americans and Europeans, including attacks in London, Paris, Nice, Brussels, Boston and San Bernardino — and often one another.
Information about these attacks is splashed across the media, discussed between concerned citizens, and echoed throughout global politics. This situation prompted me to ask: Why do there appear to be more Islamist terrorists in the West, even though the homeland of their religious teaching is on the other side of the world?
It would seem implausible that the West, with freedom of education, would become a hotbed for these violent minds, and yet the numbers are clear.
Ignoring the trend will not do anything to prevent future tragedies. The cause of this explosion of terror in the West needs to be rooted out. After careful study, it seems that there are several explanations.
First of all, Western countries are much more lenient toward the jihadists and Islamists.
When I came to the West and learned what kind of teachings the radical imams in the UK and the US preach, I was astounded. They freely lash out at the country which gives them shelter, they denounce the political system, they criticize the people they see every day in the streets.
They denigrate the way people live in the West, the way they dress, eat, every aspect of their daily lives.
On the other hand, many in the West are far too lenient toward these fundamentalist groups.
There is a belief that you should give them the same rights to enjoy freedom of speech, press, and assembly as everyone else. These rights in themselves are valuable.
But the issue becomes, where do you draw the line? When a radical imam in the US or Europe is publicly inciting anti-Semitic, anti-American, and anti-Western hate, should they be allowed to continue?
When many radical Muslim centers in the West preach jihad and terrorism, should you still let them enjoy freedom of speech and assembly? Their preaching is the major factor behind the increasing terrorism we have currently spreading throughout the West. It is this hate speech, and incitement of violence, that has taken lives of many innocent people. If we allow them to continue, the vicious trend will only ratchet up exponentially.
The West needs to understand that the Islamists do not see these rights as something to appreciate; they see them as something to exploit.
These very rights are used to manipulate and radicalize citizens and foreigners alike, to turn against the host government and the innocent people who share the land they stand on. They are brainwashed and then encouraged, if not commanded, to go out and change everything around them.
Real good detective work there, Mounties.
Terrorism-related charges are pending against a man accused of stabbing a police officer and deliberately plowing a cube van into pedestrians in Edmonton on Saturday night, the RCMP says.
The suspect was known to both RCMP and police, RCMP K Division Assistant Commissioner Marlin Degrand told a news conference at Edmonton RCMP headquarters on Sunday afternoon. The man is a Somali refugee.
In 2015, after a complaint was made to the Edmonton Police Service that the man was displaying signs of extremism, members of the Integrated National Security Enforcement Team (INSET) launched an investigation, Degrand said.
The suspect was interviewed by members of INSET, but there was “insufficient evidence” to make an arrest and the suspect was deemed “not a threat,” Degrand said.
Everybody’s heard of the jihadi attack in Marseilles. Well, western Canada got a dose of it as well. And he’s a “known wolf“.
You have probably heard about last night’s terrorist attack in Edmonton. It began when a man driving a Chevrolet Malibu crashed through a police barrier associated with a sports event and struck an Edmonton police officer, throwing him 15 feet through the air. The terrorist, who had an ISIS flag in the front seat of his vehicle, then jumped out of the car and attacked the officer with a knife, stabbing him repeatedly. This part of the attack was recorded on video:
The terrorist has now been identified as Abdulahi Hasan Sharif, a Somali national who was granted refugee status in Canada. Like most such terrorists, he is a “known wolf.”
Police chief Rod Knecht said at a Sunday afternoon news conference that the man, who came to the attention of law enforcement in 2015 for “espousing extremist ideology” is believed to have acted alone.
The Eastern European states that lived under the yoke of Communist Russian tyranny seem to have their act together.
Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban and Poland’s Prime Minister Beata Szydlo met in Warsaw last week. During a joint press conference, they said they remain fully opposed to the European Union’s migrant policies.
“We accept that some countries have become immigrant countries,” said Orban. “But we don’t want to be [like] them and we want them to accept this. But they want us to become like them. We don’t want a mixed population, as has been created in the countries to the west of us. We are looking for different solutions and please respect it.”
As reported by The Financial Times, the outspoken Hungarian premier also took the EU to task for its criticism of Poland over the ruling Law and Justice party’s contentious attempts to overhaul the judicial system, which critics fret will undermine Polish democracy.
“The EU cannot threaten Poland and question its rule of law. This is a lack of respect. It looks like an inquisition. There is no place for a political inquisition in the EU. Hungary won’t support it,” he said.
In turn, Szydlo said she and Orban had agreed to maintain a united front on “security and handling the migrant crisis”, and insisted that the “road taken by our governments in terms of illegal migration turned out to be right”.
“We took note of the European Court’s verdicts, but the main guideline for our actions has to be the security of our citizens,” she said.
The media can be remarkably dense when it serves their version of reality.
On the one-year anniversary of the terror attack in St. Cloud, Minnesota, where Somali refugee Dahir Adan walked into the Crossroads Center shopping mall and began stabbing shoppers (as he asked his victims if they were Muslim) and shouting “Allah akhbar,” the media is still remarkably unclear about Adan’s motives.
It’s not called the “New York Slimes” for nothing. Standard procedure for proggies is to tell everyone else how to run their lives.
Hungary’s government spokesman has laid into the New York Times for a sanctimonious op-ed rife with errors and misconceptions regarding Europe’s migrant crisis and Hungary’s role in protecting Europe’s borders.
On September 8, the New York Times Editorial Board published an opinion piece titled “Hungary Is Making Europe’s Migrant Crisis Worse,” which censured Hungary for its “inhospitable attitudes” toward migrants, while also excoriating President Trump for his “scandalous example” on immigration and dissing Britain’s Brexit vote to leave the European Union.
In his written reply to the Times’ editors, government spokesman Zoltán Kovács takes issue with the newspaper’s presumption in trying to teach Europeans how to solve their migrant crisis while continuing “to show just how much they don’t understand.”
- More than 50,000 jihadists are now living in Europe. — Gilles de Kerchove, EU Counterterrorism Coordinator.
- Europol, the European police office, has identified at least 30,000 active jihadist websites, but EU legislation no longer requires internet service providers to collect and preserve metadata — including data on the location of jihadists — from their customers due to privacy concerns. De Kerchove said this was hindering the ability of police to identify and deter jihadists.
German authorities are hunting for dozens of members of one of the most violent jihadist groups in Syria, Jabhat al-Nusra, but who, according to Der Spiegel, entered Germany disguised as refugees.
The men, all former members of Liwa Owais al-Qorani, a rebel group destroyed by the Islamic State in 2014, are believed to have massacred hundreds of Syrians, both soldiers and civilians.
German police have reportedly identified around 25 of the jihadists and apprehended some of them, but dozens more are believed to be hiding in cities and towns across Germany.
In all, more than 400 migrants who entered Germany as asylum seekers in 2015 and 2016 are now being investigated for being members of Middle Eastern jihadists groups, according to the Federal Criminal Police (Bundeskriminalamt, BKA).
The revelation comes amid new warnings that jihadists are posing as migrants and arriving from North Africa on boats across the Mediterranean and onto Italian shores. In an interview with The Times, Libyan Prime Minister Fayez al-Sarraj said that jihadists who had been able to pass undetected into his country were almost certainly making their way into Europe.
“When migrants reach Europe they will move freely,” said al-Sarraj, referring to the open borders within the European Union. “If, God forbid, there are terrorist elements among the migrants, any incident will affect all of the EU.”
What? Not Jati-Matics?
Finnish news agency STT said the country’s more than 7,000 police officers soon will have submachine guns. A top police official cited the increased terror threat is the main reason for the upgrade.
Ari Alanen of Finland’s top police body told STT on Friday that “we must increasingly consider the weapons we need to take with us.”
No one with the National Police Board was immediately available for comment. No details were immediately available on when the weapons would be handed out.
Trudeau won’t adopt Scheer’s plan to control the border (that’s the southern Canadian border with the U.S. by the way)
Hypocritical hand wringing by people who were casing aspersions our way about the policies trying to decrease refugee and immigration and they have the gall the squeal when their precious border means nothing to the refugees that have figured out that we’re not going to be the pushover we used to be for that past 8 years.
CPC leader Andrew Scheer has been relatively quiet this summer causing criticism from some conservatives. It seems the newly elected leader preferred to do the barbeque circuit rather than speak out against serious issues facing Canada such as the $10.5 million payment to terrorist Omar Khadr and the erasure by the Trudeau government of the country’s southern border.
It is true Scheer made some comments about these matters but left the bulk of the border crisis to Michelle Rempel, the party’s immigration critic. Rempel’s solution was to simply spend more and more money to hire more immigration officers and Immigration and Refugee board judges and support staff in order to process these illegal border crossers more quickly. The faster they can be processed, the sooner they can be deported back to their countries of origin. Rempel’s solution to simply throw more money at the problem was truly Trudashian.
Lo and behold, Scheer came up with a solution last week that was brilliant in its simplicity. Scheer suggested the popular illegal crossing points such as Roxton Road in Quebec and Emerson in Manitoba be designated as official ports of entry. It would not be necessary for Parliament to be sitting to pass a law; designation of such areas could be done by regulation that can be enacted by an order-in-council. In practical terms, if the prime minister wants an order-in-council enacted it shall be done.
If these illegal border crossing points were made official, the Third Party Agreement signed in 2002 by the United States and Canada would apply. Those who come into the country seeking asylum from the United States would be forced to go back to the U.S. and make a claim there. If they had made an asylum claim there but been rejected, they will be out of luck.
Now we mustn’t do anything that these moslems might think is disparaging to their culture, even when it’s an offense chargeable as felony assault. Next thing you know, they’ll not be charged with murder for ‘honor killings’ or planting IEDs.
A bill that would make female genital mutilation a crime in Maine is officially dead.
Earlier Wednesday, a republican lawmaker came up with a change to the bill, and asked for another vote.
House Democrats insisted it was already dead, but a republican senator tried to bring an amendment to the floor.
State Senator Joyce Maker’s amendment removed language that made it a crime for a parent or guardian to consent to FGM.
Instead, the person who actually performed the FGM procedure would be found guilty of a felony crime.
The change to the bill also directed DHHS to start an education and outreach campaign to communities in the state where the procedure might be practiced.
Those against the bill said a new state law could isolate immigrants and cause fear, largely because the cutting practice is most often done on girls in Africa and the Middle East.
The Senate voted against bringing the bill back up for a vote.
Here’s the reason why the U.N, is so “pro-refugee/immigration”. TPTB see a declining population and the only way for them to maintain their cushy lifestyle is import a new population that they can tax and control….they hope.
The report specifically targets the U.S., Germany, Britain, France, Italy, Japan, South Korea and Russia as prime candidates for “replacement migration”.
