In 2015, Russia television “accidentally” showed a glimpse of plans for a proposed new 100-megaton autonomous torpedo designed to destroy American ports and poison the coastline of any adversary it targets. Analysts were left wondering whether the blueprints were a sign that Moscow was returning to the good old days of bizarre Cold War weapons development—or just bluffing to keep the Yankees off balance.
The U.S. government still appears to believe that the weapon is a real Russian program, according to a leaked draft of the Trump administration’s forthcoming Nuclear Posture Review obtained by the Huffington Post.
Liberal narratives don’t die easily, but when they do the fall can often be hard and fast. Consider the “myth of the noble illegal immigrant,” an insistence by a Left longing for more Democratic votes and an Establishment Right longing for more cheap labor that illegal immigrants are uber-law-abiding – indeed, are the most law-abiding among us, so law-abiding, in fact, that they could easily teach us Americans something about how to law abide, or something.
A British woman, Kay Wilson, apparently realized that when a Palestinian terrorist “plunged a knife into her chest”, left her for dead and then murdered her friend, it was British taxpayers who had paid for it.
“Is the UK funding the terrorists who tried to murder me?”, she asked.
Yes, it is. “According to data collected by Israel’s Defense Ministry, the PA spent a total of 1.237 billion shekels ($358 million), or about 7% of the PA’s total annual budget, on terrorist stipends last year.”
International payments to Palestinians that are used to pay terrorists in jail, as well as their families, serve both as a “reward for bad behavior” and also as a powerful incentive for youths to become terrorists.
In 2014, after years of visiting his family in the United States without incident, the Muslim Canadian learned he was no longer allowed to enter the U.S., where his parents live, his father a green-card holder.
“My boarding pass wouldn’t come out of the computer. I went to the desk, they said, ‘Sorry, sir, you’ve been denied entry to the United States.’ Without a reason,” he recalled.
He sure has an interesting personal history… but to the CBC every Muslim’s sob story is to be believed
The New York Times wants to make it official: President Donald Trump is a racist.
On Friday, the editorial board of America’s most influential paper asserted there was no doubt of that.
The editorial was in response to Trump reportedly asking why America takes in so many immigrants from “shithole” countries instead of places like Norway. “Where to begin?” the Times’ editorial board collectively sighed when reflecting on Trump’s statement. “How about with a simple observation: The president of the United States is a racist.”
Malaysian businesses ‘self-censoring’ dog images to avoid Muslim outcry
WITH five weeks left until Chinese New Year (CNY), several businesses in multi-ethnic Malaysia are steering clear of dog images on their products and displays to avoid upsetting the country’s Muslim majority.
In February, the Chinese community will be ushering in the Year of the Dog, one of 12 animals in its zodiac calendar, but a photo of a CNY T-shirt which made its rounds on social media in recent weeks showed cartoon images of the canine and also the pig missing, creating a stir among netizens.
4.5% of the current population in the UK is Muslim. A great many of these are imported anti-Semites.
In the UK the presence of anti-Semitic and anti-Israel attitudes is two to four times higher among Muslims than in the general population. This is one major conclusions of a recent report titled, “Antisemitism in Contemporary Great Britain, a Study of Attitudes Toward Jews and Israel.” The study was published by the Institute for Jewish Policy Research (JPR) and the Community Security Trust (CST). Its author is L. Daniel Staetsky.
The publishers claim that this is the largest and most detailed survey of attitudes toward Jews and Israel ever conducted in Great Britain. Even though there are many more findings about anti-Israel and anti-Semitic attitudes we can only address part of them here.
If one focuses on the UK’s Muslim population’s attitudes toward Israel and the Jews, the answers to the individual questions show that Muslims are always more negative about Israel and/or the Jews than the general population. For instance, in the general population 13% answered in the affirmative that ‘Jews think they are better than other people.’ Among Muslims, that figure is 28%. The study also separates out the answers from religious Muslims which isn’t often done in similar surveys elsewhere. Here the figure is 32%.
Most people convicted of international terrorism in U.S. courts since 2001 were foreign born, the Trump administration said in a new report Tuesday that officials said boosts the president’s travel ban.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement also had more than 2,500 encounters with people who appear on the FBI’s terrorist watch list in 2017, the administration said. And since 2001 deportation officers have ousted more than 1,700 foreigners over national security concerns.
“This report reveals an indisputable sobering reality — our immigration system has undermined our national security and public safety,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said.
He said there are “thousands of people” facing terrorism-related investigations right now.
The new report found at least 549 people convicted of international terrorism charges in U.S. federal courts since the 2001 attacks. Of those, 254 weren’t citizens, and another 148 were foreign born but ended up getting U.S. citizenship through the immigration system.
Blair Logsdon’s story is a cautionary tale for anyone today who is considering the use of cross-gender hormones and gender-change surgery to feel better about themselves.
Logsdon underwent 167 surgeries from 1987 to 2005 in his quest to resolve gender dysphoria with surgery. On a cold, snowy December morning in a Maryland coffee shop, he shared with me his story.
In 1987, at the age of 26, he underwent the first of many cosmetic surgeries to change his gender/sex appearance from male to trans-female. Within a few months, he said he deeply regretted becoming a trans-woman.
…But at some point between then and a recent interview with the Radio Times, Morgan began calling himself a royalist, explaining that Britons “believe in the Queen, now, at a time when it’s so hard to find people that you really believe in.”
It’s tempting to see this as a kind of Stockholm syndrome, where Morgan has spent too much time as a hostage to Elizabeth and her family, striving as a dramatist to discern their motivations and shape their story to his – and our – emotional satisfaction. They have elicited his sympathy, so much so that he blames the Queen’s subjects for adding to the burden of their roles. “We torment these people,” Morgan said. “But we’re the villains, because we don’t know what we want from them.”
Muslims fear backlash over hijab hoax as school takes heat for press conference
Digital media strategist Mark Blevis says the story’s initial popularity, as well as its harsh turn after it was revealed to be false, shows just how quick people are to jump to politically-motivated conclusions.
“With outrage culture there’s this big movement towards piling on,” he told CTV Ottawa.
The revelation touched off a second wave of outrage from critics, with some targeting the girl with hateful comments online.
The backlash has sparked fears among Muslims that it will inspire more discrimination in the future.
“This will probably be used as an opportunity to downplay all the times that Muslims come out and speak out against Islamophobia,” Sabrine Azraq, of the Canadian Council of Muslim Women, told CTV National News.
Azraq says it’s important to push back against the anger generated by the false story, saying it should not be allowed to “derail the very serious matters that are happening in this country.”
