Johnny Depp: ‘When Was the Last Time an Actor Assassinated a President?’

International movie superstar Johnny Depp may be in hot water over comments he made about President Donald Trump.

When Depp, star of such films as Black Mass and The Rum Diary, introduced a film on Thursday at “Cinemageddon,” a film stage at England’s famous Glastonbury Festival, he turned his attention across the Atlantic to the current occupant of the White House.

According to the Daily Telegraph, he told the crowd, “I think [Donald] Trump needs help. There are a lot of dark places he could go.”

The British government bans extremist organisations – unless they are Islamists that murder Jews.

Straight after the latest slaughter in London Bridge, 17 days ago, Prime Minister Theresa May makes a strident promise: “Enough is enough!” For one fleeting moment her assertiveness reminds me of the great Winston Churchill. As an officer in the British Army in 1897 & 1898 he fought in British India and Sudan; in both conflicts he encounters the horrors of radical Islam. In 1899 (and at only 25 years old) Churchill warns that Islam is “a militant proselytising force that is spreading through Central Africa.” In a prophetic comment Churchill asserts: “Islam is out to destroy the civilisation of modern Europe.”


There was really little for the FBI to do here. Hodgkinson’s motives were fairly clear. He had a list of names of targets. His social media was filled with rants against Republicans. A witness describes him studying the area of his future attack. According to Rep. DeSantis, he asked if the players were Republicans or Democrats.

This is about as open and shut as anything gets. All the FBi had to do was go through his laptop and phone to confirm that he hadn’t been coordinating with anyone else.

Except the FBI instead decided to treat Hodgkinson as if he were a Muslim terrorist. And by that I mean launch into a cover-up of his motives.

A Warm, Fluffy Mosque Inside a Church in Berlin — “Interfaith” in Action

The “interfaith” movement has reached an important milestone: a mosque has been constructed inside a church in Berlin. Everyone is excited and happy about this significant event, which allows people of all faiths to come together under one roof in peace and harmony and etc blah yak.

Many thanks to Ava Lon for translating this TV news report, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling. Vlad has added some instructive footage by Maj. Stephen Coughlin about the significance of the “interfaith” movement in the Muslim Brotherhood’s long-range plans.


Forced marriage in Canada ‘more prevalent’ than thought: ex-child bride

Samra Zafar was just 16 years old when her mother told her she would be marrying a 28-year-old man in Canada.

Against her wishes, Zafar left her Pakistani family’s home in the United Arab Emirates and started a new life with her husband in Mississauga, Ont.

Over the next decade, she endured “abuse of all kinds” as she raised two daughters and tried desperately to obtain a university education and get out of her marriage. She eventually succeeded and is now speaking out about child brides and forced marriage – a problem she says is prevalent, even in Canada.

CLAIM: Teacher made students stand up and apologize for their ‘white privilege’

Allegations that a middle school teacher forced several students to stand and apologize for their “white privilege” have rocked a North Carolina school district.

First reported by American Lens, during a meeting of the Rockingham County School Board last month, a woman named Farren Wilkinson made the troubling accusations against a teacher from Western Rockingham Middle School.

Real Climate Science You Don’t Hear About

You hear about new climate science every day. You’re also savvy enough to wonder how much bias goes into that reporting. To give you an idea, here’s a short review of four studies published this year that have received no media attention even though their findings are significant.

North Korea says Trump is a ‘psychopath’ who may launch a preemptive strike

A commentary published in a North Korean state newspaper Thursday calls President Trump a “psychopath” — and suggests that he would launch a preemptive strike on North Korea to distract from domestic political problems.

The accusations, published in government mouthpiece Rodong Sinmun, come at an especially fraught time. Just two days earlier, Trump had condemned the “brutality of the North Korean regime” after the death of Otto Warmbier, an American student who was detained in North Korea for nearly a year and a half.

The New ‘Uncle Toms’: Islamists and Leftists Target Reformists and Ex-Muslims With Racial Epithet

It’s now 2017 – a “current year” factoid always thrown in our face by progressives – and the forcefulness by which the political left and fundamentalist Muslims utilise the phrases “house Muslim” or “uncle Tom” to shame those who don’t confirm is not just abundant, it is growing.

I have a pretty thick skin. I hear these things every day. I feel ashamed, not of who I am, but of my fellow human beings who find it appropriate to race-shame someone, or religion-shame them.
