Fleeing over the border in their VW camper van the Griesbach family told Vladimir Putin’s Government they had escaped the ‘German dictatorship’ where they could no longer raise their children.

Carola Griesbach, 51, and her husband Andre, 45, raced the 2,300 kilometres from northern Germany to Moscow’s Red Square.

Two of their daughters, Dominique and Julia, along with four of their grandchildren were also crammed into the van.

However, since arriving on New Year’s Eve in 2015, they have been stranded at a small motel in a forest outside the Russian capital.

The family have claimed their reasons for leaving the country include mass migration, the ‘early sexualisation’ of children, a lack of democracy and forced immunisation.

hillary is corruptThe FBI wanted the Justice Department to investigate the Clinton Foundation – but the DOJ declined

The FBI approached the Department of Justice earlier this year and asked the public integrity unit to open an investigation of the Clinton Foundation.

But the DOJ declined, according to CNN.

The reasoning, the report said, was that the Justice Department had looked into Hillary Clinton’s family foundation a year before and didn’t find enough evidence to do so.

#Terrorism: Germany to present raft of security measures after July attacks

Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere will announce the new measures on Thursday and plans to have them adopted in the current legislative period, the Koelner Stadt-Anzeiger newspaper cited coalition sources as saying.

This would mean the proposal becoming law before Germany’s next federal election, due in autumn 2017.

The new measures include speeding up deportations of foreign potential attackers and criminals and the introduction of a new reason for deportation: “danger to public safety”, the Bild daily reported, citing security sources.

Berk hopes to crunch the data from the files of children and their parents to see if he can predict from the circumstances of their birth whether a child will commit a crime before their 18th birthday.

The possible outcome of Berk’s experiment would be to pre-classify some children as ‘likely criminals’ based on nothing more than the circumstances of their birth.

This could be the first step in making Minority Report a reality, where people could be condemned for crimes they haven’t even committed.

For years, Canadian police have successfully kept their use of controversial and indiscriminate surveillance devices called IMSI catchers a secret.

Today, for the first time, and thanks to a year-long effort by a coalition of civil rights organizations and Vancouver-based Pivot Legal Society, we know that at least one local police force in Canada has used an IMSI catcher, also referred to as a “Stingray”: the Vancouver PD.

palestine tunnelEight Palestinian operatives injured in Gaza tunnel collapse

Eight Palestinian tunnel operatives were wounded in a tunnel collapse early Wednesday morning in the northern Gaza border town of Shuja’yya, according to Ma’an News Agency.

All of the wounded tunnel operatives were transported to the Shifa hospital in Gaza City.

After the IDF uncovered a tunnel extending into Israeli territory in April, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu revealed that Israel has developed a cutting-edge tunnel technology to locate tunnels.

Nonetheless, it is not clear if Israel has played any part in the recent collapses.

joan of arcMarion Le Pen is a modern ‘Joan of Arc’ reborn to save France

The Canadian political activist and media personality, Ezra Levant, has championed the 26-year-old MP on his The Rebel website and said she is like Joan of Arc, who led the French army to victory over the British during the Hundred Years’ War.

Mr Levant said: “France is under attack, but I’ll show you a 21st century Joan of Arc who just might be the one to save the country, a young woman joining the armed forces and calling upon all patriotic French to do so too.”

opinion-polls-are-broken-1400x788Opinion polls are broken; time for something new

The failure of public opinion polling is global in scope: In March 2015, Israeli polls completely failed to predict Benjamin Netanyahu’s victory. Two months later every major national poll in the UK failed to forecast the Conservative Party’s victory. A year later, every US polling agency failed to predict Donald Trump would win the Republican Party nomination. Following the failure of opinion polls to predict a Brexit victory earlier this year, investors and businesses lost over a billion pounds from currency devaluation, within days.

German foreign minister says Trump dangerous for the world

Steinmeier, unlike Chancellor Angela Merkel who has said she will not comment on the U.S. election, is not neutral on the issue because he believes it is important to draw attention to the dangers posed by Trump, said spokeswoman Sawsan Chebli.

“He is indeed not neutral on this question because he thinks that if you follow what Trump is saying then you need to be really anxious about what could become of this world … if (he) does in fact become president,” Chebli told a regular government news conference.

Steinmeier is from the centre-left Social Democrats, the junior partner in Merkel’s conservative-led ruling coalition.

Stephen BennettUK Man Sentenced for ‘Offending’ Muslims

Stephen Bennett, 39, reportedly took to the Greater Manchester Police’s Facebook page to post comments “concerning an Asian woman” as well as another which was “likely to be offensive to Muslims.”

While the Greater Manchester Police refused to disclose the details of the case to Breitbart London, he is said to have also written: “Don’t come over to this country and treat it like your own. Britain first,” according to the Manchester Evening News.

1unnamedICNA Official Makes Up Story to Promote ‘Islamophobia’ Narrative

ICNA is the American affiliate of South Asian Islamist group Jamaat-e-Islami (JI). JI’s militant wing, Hizbul Mujahideen, owned the Pakistani compound where Osama bin Laden was hiding out and where he was eventually killed by US Navy Seals. ICNA, itself, has been linked to terrorist financing and has used the web to promote different terrorist groups, including Hamas, al-Qaeda, Hezbollah and the Taliban. ICNA conducts annual functions along with the Muslim American Society (MAS), which, in November 2014, along with CAIR and others, was designated by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) government a terrorist organization.

Khan, who was at the mosque at the time of the assault, described what he alleges had taken place. According to a news report, Khan claimed that he had brought the victim to a friend’s house to retrieve a wire hanger, so that they could attempt to open the car door. According to another report, Khan and the victim “stood nearly side by side,” when the man in the truck “got out and approached them from behind.”

Khan claimed that the attacker stated during the attack, “You Muslims need to go back to where you came from.” Khan said of the attacker, “He was cursing, saying ‘Muslim this and Muslim that.’” And “He had been drinking. He was smelling bad. It was a vicious attack. He just started throwing punches.”

There are a number of problems with Khan’s story, however. According to the victim, Khan offered to stay and help open the car, but the man “told Khan to go inside because he had already took up too much of his time.” It was only after Khan went inside that the truck pulled up. Video provided by the mosque supports this scenario, as Khan is not present in the video during the attack.

Cuban and Haitians migrants get into a boatPanama agrees to help migrants head on for US

President Juan Carlos Varela on Tuesday said Panama would make an exception to its immigration restrictions for migrants who have recently crossed into Panama’s Darien jungle.

“The border will remain closed to irregular migrants, but those that are using these points to cross and have already reached our territory will be given humanitarian assistance so they can continue on their way,” he said.

“Panama will not allow anyone who has crossed into our country to die on our territory,” he added, in a public speech.

swiss-698331The new Germany? Switzerland struggles to cope with surge of migrants trying new route

More refugees are now making their way to Germany from Italy via Switzerland, instead of the traditional route from Greece through the Balkans and Austria which have now become almost impenetrable thanks to borders being fenced off.

Migrants are also trying to find different routes after Ankara made an agreement with the European Union (EU) to accept migrants back who had made the journey across the Mediterranean from Turkey to Greece.

As Germany remains the western European country of choice after Angela Merkel announced an open-door policy last year, migrants are finding new ways to get into the country.

And once they are there, they are essentially free to roam across Europe.

baltimore policeBaltimore police officers fired as scathing federal report alleges excessive force

The Justice Department and Baltimore police agreed to negotiate court-enforceable reforms after a scathing federal report released Wednesday criticized officers for using excessive force and routinely discriminating against blacks.

The report, the culmination of a yearlong investigation into one of the country’s largest police forces, found that officers make a large number of stops — mostly in poor, black neighborhoods — with dubious justification and unlawfully arrest citizens when officers “did not like what those individuals said.”

“These violations have deeply eroded the relationship between the police and community it serves,” Vanita Gupta, the head of the Justice Department’s civil rights division, said during a news conference alongside the city’s mayor and police commissioner.

Baltimore has been under Democratic control since 1967 – they created this problem which will now be used as justification for Obama to implement federal control of the nation’s police forces.

Oh-So-This-Is-Your-Brain-on-Drugs-Addicaid-e1445010588470‘This is your brain on drugs’ advert from the 1980s does more harm than good, say drug campaigners

“We all agree that we want people to be well and happy and not die from an overdose, but these adverts currently stigmatise people who are using drugs and it can contribute to discrimination in health care and crummy drug health treatment,” he said.

Mr Curtis added that boiling down the message of the advert was a disservice to a very complex issue.

“We have replaced an old system of apartheid and slavery with a sort of massive economic and criminal justice system of control. I say this without any hyperbole – it reinforces a system of white supremacy in the US,” he said.

Take a few deep breaths. Liberals are quite mad, you know.

baby with suicide belt‘We are the cubs of the caliphate. We want martyrdom’: Chilling collection of ISIS propaganda showing children with guns and babies next to firearms is uncovered

While these videos are horrifying, the terror group using children to further their brutal regime is nothing new.

When ISIS seized power in parts of Syria and Iraq in 2013 it took over schools and immediately began ‘educating’ children the Daesh way.

Staff were ordered to teach their extreme interpretation of the Koran and orphanages were also built, where the orphans came under the protection of ISIS commanders.

With no parents to nurture them or teach them their own morality the orphans could simply be moulded from an early age into brainwashed puppets.

guantanamo protest at white houseUS releases report detailing Guantanamo detainees’ backgrounds

“While the Department of Defence watered down information and failed to provide key details regarding some detainees, the report still provides Americans with a consolidated, unclassified source of information regarding the dangerous terrorists at Guantanamo who the administration has recently released or plans to release soon,” Ayotte said in an email response to questions.

She has pushed the Obama administration for years to be more transparent about who is being transferred out.

The remaining detainees “will no doubt” return to the fight once released, she said, noting that the Defence Department told her that 93 percent of the detainees still at Guantanamo as of late last year were high risk for re-engagement in terrorism.

Make anything related to supporting or practicing terrorism a capital offense.

anti-trump protestersFight or flight: What if Trump wins?

“In September of last year I started believing that Trump had a real chance at the presidency which is when I began exploring opportunities to live abroad,” said Abdul Aziz, who lives between New Orleans, Louisiana, and Saint Louis, Missouri.

For Abdul Aziz – acutely familiar with the African American experience and the daily danger and anxiety experienced by black men in the American south – it is not a stretch to believe that bigots can come to power and introduce anti-Muslim legislation.

It was not too long ago that black people were legally treated as property and not allowed to vote until the laws were changed, and they can be changed again, he stressed.

“When you have a figurehead like Trump saying these things, obviously I have fear of secret police dragging me out of my house in the middle of the night,” said Abdul Aziz, who has applied for residency in Morocco.

“The real danger lies in shrugging this rhetoric off because rhetoric is what got six million people killed in the Holocaust,” he explained.

And all this time I thought it was National Socialism.

Especially you migrants, and Muslims, I know you. I lived in your country for 10 years, and have seen how cruel, arrogant, and stupid you are. You don’t respect your women. You force them to be your slaves. You are supposed to be tolerant according to your imams, but you are not tolerant. You don’t respect other religions. Have you seen a Christian in Saudi Arabia who can have his faith? You want us to celebrate your holidays… Do you celebrate Christmas? Do you celebrate Easter? One day most of Europe will rise against you.

“Donald Trump is 70 and Hillary Clinton is almost 69 – I wanna see both their records, let’s be fair,” said Siegel, noting that Hillary had a “huge concussion” and a blood clot on her brain four years ago.

“Neurologically speaking…. for both candidates’s medical history, neurological history has to be transparent – this is a long and rigorous campaign,” said Gupta, adding that Clinton had a “long history of unexplained falls” that led to post-concussive syndrome.

Concealed-carry permit holders are nearly the most law-abiding demographic of Americans, a new report by the Crime Prevention Research Center says—comparing the permit holders foremost with police.

“Indeed, it is impossible to think of any other group in the U.S. that is anywhere near as law-abiding,” says the report, titled “Concealed Carry Permit Holders Across the United States 2016.”

That respect for the law  – and not false authority – is why they fear us.

isis-jihadistMoronic Analysis of the Islamic State from Bloomberg News

While the video acknowledges that attacks attributed to supporters of the Islamic State or Islamic State Jihadis themselves have accelerated and expanded around the world, it totally ignores Islamic doctrine in drawing a conclusion based upon the spin of the Obama administration.

That spin, echoed by the video, maintains that the reason the Islamic State is carrying out attacks in places like San Bernardino, California and Paris is because the Islamic State is losing in Iraq and Syria. So, the absurd narrative goes, the more attacks around the world that occur, the closer we are to victory.

Rob Reiner: Trump’s Comments Dangerous Because His Followers Have ‘Violent Nature’

Reiner said, “I can’t believe we’re having a conversation. That we are having a conversation about this kind of talk from a man who is running for president of the United States. The volume of idiocy that comes out of his mouth, you can’t wrap your mind around it. First, he said let’s have a foreign country spy on this country, then he demeans a Gold Star family, now he’s recommending assassination as a remedy for a political redress. It’s crazy, and the fact that we’re even having this conversation and that this man is running for president, we’re living in some kind of a dream world, I think.”

YouTuber Graham Phillips has released an entertaining new video where he asks Germans and migrants on the streets of Munich what they think about Angela Merkel, immigration, terrorism and more.
