‘Mad dog’ Mattis issues ultimatum to NATO: Increase defence spending or U.S. changes its commitments

“No longer can the American taxpayer carry a disproportionate share of the defense of western values,” Mattis said. “Americans cannot care more for your children’s security than you do. Disregard for military readiness demonstrates a lack of respect for ourselves, for the alliance, and for the freedoms we inherited, which are now clearly threatened.”


PARIS 2016: Scenes from the Apocalypse – African Mass Immigration ruins Streets of France


Thousands protest in Milwaukee over fears of immigration crackdown

Between 10,000 and 20,000 protesters turned out for the ‘Day Without Latinos’ march on Monday, walking from the city’s mainly Hispanic south side to the downtown courthouse to rally against Sheriff David Clarke’s plan.

The marchers shouted “Si, podemos!” (Yes we can!) as they walked through the streets, along with “El pueblo unido” (The people united).

One sign read: “We are a nation of immigrants.” Another stated: “We are workers, not criminals.”

In Western Australia, her party has also struck a preference deal with the Liberal Party, which will preference One Nation above the Nationals in the upper house.

President Trump attacked the “fake news media” Wednesday morning for “going crazy with their conspiracy theories and blind hatred.”

UC students explore ‘alternatives to calling the police’

During a workshop scheduled for February 22, explicitly titled “Alternatives to Calling the Police,” the prestigious school’s “Students Working Against Prisons” club will discuss “the negative ramifications of calling the police, especially in regards to their racial oppression of black people and other people of color.”

“It will then prompt participants to reflect on their own relationship to the police,” a description for the event explains, noting that the workshop will conclude with a “guided brainstorming of alternatives to calling the police.”

According to an advertisement for the event, students will consider alternatives to law enforcement officials in cases of “mugging,” “sexual assault,” “health emergencies,” “mental health crises,” and “public nuisances,” or “‘suspicious’ activity.”


NPR: Resettlement contractors claim they have been told that new arrivals will end March 3

More than 2,000 refugees, already vetted and approved for travel, have arrived since the ruling was handed down on Feb. 9. But over the weekend, according to refugee advocates who shared the official guidance with NPR, the State Department alerted resettlement agencies that new arrivals will end on March 3.

[Readers this is an example of what Trump is up against. Here you have federal contractors taking “official” documents to a friendly reporter at NPR!—ed]


Google, Facebook tell government they take ‘fake news’ seriously

Executives from Google and Facebook told a parliamentary committee Tuesday they’re concerned about “fake news” online, but pushed back at the suggestion their companies should be liable for the information that flows through their websites.

The Internet executives were testifying at the Standing Committee on Canadian Heritage for the second time after parliamentarians asked them to return to field questions on misrepresentative or demonstrably false “news” that has fuelled concern in recent months. They were also asked about a report, published last month by the Public Policy Forum in Ottawa, that outlined how the Internet behemoths are gobbling digital ad dollars while many traditional Canadian media organizations, especially in smaller markets, struggle to stay afloat.

“We take our responsibility very seriously. That’s precisely why we’ve spent so much energy in the past three months to build out efforts to address fake news,” said Kevin Chan, head of public policy for Facebook Canada.

Essentially, “We will censor as we choose and are responsible for nothing.”

    The one word your going to hear all the time this morning, at American and Canadian media outlets is chaos. Yes the White House is in chaos. Everybody is in a panic and no one knows what they are doing. WERE ALL GOING TO DIE!! Meanwhile little Justin is being give the loving devotion he deserves by the media during his trip to wine and dine with European elites. He did stutter this morning, that he is thinking about the Maritimes and the extreme winter weather they are going through, as he put it. its a good thing he forced that carbon tax on them to prevent global warming.

    Good news for Ontario taxpayers, because the racist bastards here love to pay taxes. Wynne has given support workers at schools a big raise, and in case you missed it. The courts have awarded a billion dollars to whiny indians who were taken out of squalor and drunken family situations in Ontario. Yes the taxpayers in Ontario can spare a mere billion dollars.

    “Americans cannot care more for your children’s security than you do.”
    Why spend on defense when your border is no more than a line on the map that anyone can cross unchallenged and with impunity?

    Dear UC students:

    There is an alternative to calling the police on those who mean to do you harm.

    It’s called getting a “concealed carry” gun permit.

    Then if your life is ever threatened, you have the option to “blow them away”.

    Sylvania Township police have charged the man they said spray painted a vulgar message [F##k Arabs, embellished with a Swastika] last month on an Arab family’s home.
    Authorities charged Osama Nazzal, 28, of Toledo with criminal damaging in the graffiti found Jan. 10 in the 7000 block of Cinnamon Teal Court.
    Deputy Chief Jim Rettig said the detective bureau acted on a tip in its investigation. Mr. Nazzal told police this was not a matter of ethnic intimidation, Deputy Chief Rettig said. He declined to say what police believe motivated the suspect.
