LAPD chief: Police won’t help deport immigrants under Trump
Los Angeles police chief Charlie Beck says President-elect Donald Trump’s vows to deport millions after taking office will not affect his department’s longstanding policy of staying out of immigration issues.
Beck told the Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/2fc3QSY) on Monday that his officers are “not going to engage in law enforcement activities solely based on somebody’s immigration status.”
Beck says it is not the LAPD’s job to work in conjunction on deportation with Homeland Security, and that’s not going to change.
Who’s Behind The Portland Riots? 60% Of Arrested Anti-Trump Protesters Were From Out Of State, Didn’t Vote
Two months ago, Charlotte police confirmed that 70% of those arrested during the riots were from out-of-state. 18 months before that, as the riots flared in Ferguson, George Soros spurred the protest movement through years of funding and mobilizing groups across the U.S., according to financial records reviewed by The Washington Times. And now, amid more headlines of Soros’ involvement, KGW reports that more than half of the anti-Trump protesters arrested in Portland were from out of state.
40 Per Cent of Islamic Radicals In Austria Recently Arrived as ‘Refugees’
The ministry says its data covers a period from early 2011 and ending July 1 of this year. It released the data Monday in answer to a parliamentary query from the right-wing and anti-migrant Freedom Party.
The ministry says that of the identified radicals, 44 are believed to have been killed in Syria, 87 have returned from fighting in Syria or Iraq and 50 were prevented from joining radical fighters in those two countries. The rest are still believed to be in the region.
MRC/YouGov Poll: Most Voters Saw, Rejected News Media Bias
“The media are in full panic mode because the American people rejected their leftist agenda — and them. People didn’t believe the nonsense that the media were politically neutral. Even a third of Hillary’s supporters believe they were pro-Hillary!
When you have a strong majority of actual voters saying the national ‘news’ media were biased in favor of Hillary Clinton and tried to influence the public to vote for her; and believing they are fundamentally dishonest, you have a major problem that can’t be fixed with an apology. The public has rejected this institution as being either objective or truthful. There is an institutional bias at major media networks that must be repaired and I am highly skeptical that news executives are interested or capable of undertaking this responsibility.”
Obama warns against ‘a crude sort of nationalism’ taking root in the U.S.
“We are going to have to guard against a rise in a crude sort of nationalism, or ethnic identity or tribalism that is built around an us and a them, and I will never apologize for saying that the future of humanity and the future of the world is going to be defined by what we have in common, as opposed to those things that separate us and ultimately lead us into conflict,” Obama said.
“In the United States we know what happens when we start dividing ourselves along the lines of race or religion or ethnicity. It is dangerous. It is dangerous, not just for the minority groups that are subjected to that kind of discrimination, or in some cases in the past, violence, but because we then don’t realize our potential as a country when we are preventing blacks or Latinos or Asians or gays or women from fully participating in the project of building American life,” he said.
Obama’s entire approach to politics is divide-and-conquer. He has taken race relations in the US back to the 50s in order to achieve his agenda.
France, U.N. tell Trump action on climate change unstoppable
France and the United Nations on Tuesday stepped up warnings to U.S. President-elect Donald Trump about the risks of quitting a 2015 global plan to combat climate change, saying a historic shift from fossil fuels is unstoppable.
French President Francois Hollande, addressing almost 200 nations meeting in Morocco on ways to slow global warming, said that inaction would be “disastrous for future generations and it would be dangerous for peace”.
Germany’s spy agency finally admits that the Islamic State is infiltrating refugee groups to get into Europe
I’ve been pointing this out for well over a year, but you know, it was a “racist” and “Islamophobic” thing to say. But now we hear this admission: “IS announced that it would send attackers to the continent through the route which refugees were taking. At the time, politicians denied this…Our leaders thought, if we now admit that there could be terrorists among refugees, then it would serve as fodder for right-wing populists and lead to more anti-migrant feelings. So they played it down, but ultimately that was not the right thing to do.”
Swedish women get hotline to report mansplaining
For those who might not be familiar with the modern portmanteau, the union defined mansplaining as when “a man explains something to a woman without being asked, particularly something which she might already know more about than the man”.
Unionen said the commonplace practice diminishes women, by making them appear less competent than they are.
Illegals demand Obama issue mass pardons, last-ditch effort to stop Trump deportations
Community leaders have planned a rally in New York on Wednesday to make the request.
“Millions of law abiding undocumented immigrants are fearful of what will happen when the new Administration takes control in January,” the group said in a statement announcing the rally. “However, President Obama has the power of pardons that he can use to protect all DACA enrollees.”
Political climate raises global temperatures
Last Tuesday plans were firmly in place for a new carbon tax to be levied in Alberta in less than two months and likely in 2018 for the rest of the country.
By Wednesday with the election of Donald Trump as U.S president all those plans were looking more than a little wobbly and even irrelevant.
Trump is a climate change denier and a big promoter of the petroleum and coal industries, two large scale carbon emitters that have to be reined in if the disastrous effects of an overload of heat-trapping greenhouse gases in the atmosphere are to be avoided.
