ISIS ‘jihadi brides have connections and skills to be very dangerous,’ warns MI6 chief

JIHADI brides like Shamima Begum who ran away to join Islamic State in Syria are “potentially very dangerous” when they return to the UK, Britain’s spy chief warned yesterday.

Alex Younger, head of MI6, said British-born IS fighters pose an “extremely complex problem” for the authorities when they come home. Mr Younger spoke after Home Secretary Sajid Javid vowed to block Begum’s return to the UK. The heavily-pregnant 19-year-old, now in a refugee camp in northern Syria and who has already lost two children, says she wants to come home to have her baby – the child of a Dutch IS fighter.

Are France and the EU helpless against anti-Semitism?

…Today, the country is confronted by two different waves of anti-Semitism, experts say; one expressed by second-generation Arab and African Muslim immigrants, and a more “traditional” anti-Semitism that has been around for years, and, which some argue, is resurfacing with the anti-government yellow vest protest movement. It has manifested itself in myriad ways, they say — not just in attacks against Jews, but also vulgar anti-Semitic graffiti against President Emmanuel Macron, a former banker at Rothschild.

‘Damage is done’ in Indigenous community over Wilson-Raybould’s treatment: Kinew

Manitoba NDP Leader Wab Kinew says the federal Liberal government’s treatment of Jody Wilson-Raybould in the SNC-Lavalin scandal has done serious damage to the party’s reputation with Indigenous people in Canada.

Indigenous people have “made up their mind” on the issue, Kinew told CTV Question Period host Evan Solomon during an interview airing Sunday.

“Jody Wilson-Raybould appears to be the one conducting herself with integrity and the prime minister seems to be playing politics as usual,” he said. “I think that has damaged Trudeau’s reputation as being Canada’s first woke prime minister.”

Trudeau spins as he looks for new answers

I’m having trouble keeping track of Justin Trudeau’s excuses in the controversy that has surrounded his office, the construction firm SNC-Lavalin and his former attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould.

On Friday morning, the PM was in Ottawa’s west end hoping to change the channel from one of scandal to one him handing Blackberry a $40-million cheque to help with their self-driving car technology.

It didn’t work.

UK’s ‘most dangerous extremist group’ regenerating after terrorist prisoners released

Britain’s “most prolific and dangerous extremist group” is regenerating following the release of several convicted terrorists from prison, it has been suggested.

Supporters of Anjem Choudary’s al-Muhajiroun group carried out atrocities including the London Bridge attack, 7/7 London bombings and murder of Lee Rigby, and many have fought for Isis, al-Qaeda and the Taliban abroad.

Choudary is among several activists released from prison in the past six months, as well as men who canvassed support for Isis on Oxford Street and members of a terror cell that plotted to bomb the London Stock Exchange in 2010.

The head of national counterterror policing said officers were working to disrupt terrorist activity by al-Muhajiroun, which has shown itself to be adept at surviving past crackdowns.

Justin Trudeau’s credibility gap on SNC-Lavalin

A large majority of people following the controversy over Justin Trudeau, Jody Wilson-Raybould and SNC-Lavalin say the former justice minister has the most credibility, a new online poll says.

The online panel survey of 1,500 adults, taken Wednesday and Thursday by Public Square Research, showed that 43 per cent have followed the controversy since a Globe and Mail story cited anonymous sources who said the Prime Minister’s Office pressured Wilson-Raybould to avoid a court trial for the Quebec engineering firm SNC-Lavalin.

CPD Sources Confirm Nigerians Purchased Jussie’s “Rope” – CPD Now Want To Question Jussie Smollet

When Will the News Media and Liberal Establishment Admit They Got Duped by Jussie Smollett?

…But what are we to make of the police releasing them without charges? Well, the authorities citing “new evidence” and “more investigation” to be completed, along with Smollett suddenly lawyering up in a big way, makes it about as obvious as could be that the brothers have “flipped” on Smollett, and that they are not currently being charged because they are no longer law enforcement’s primary target.

Update: Saturday Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi says new information had shifted the trajectory of Jussie Smollett investigation

While police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said on Saturday that he could not speak on what the new information was, he said that the break from detectives has “shifted the trajectory” of the investigation. Though he did not say whether Smollett spoke to the men that night — one of them had previously appeared on “Empire” — he said it will also be central to the investigation whether they spoke to or saw Smollett.

Update 2: Jussie must be shitting Bricks…

Update: Chicago police want to question ‘Empire’ actor Jussie Smollett after questioning and releasing 2 brothers

Chicago police said Saturday they have reached out to the attorney for “Empire” star Jussie Smollett because they still want to speak to Smollett after releasing two brothers they had been questioning about a reported attack against the actor.

Twelve hours after calling them “possible suspects,” police late Friday released the brothers without filing any charges, citing “new evidence” they did not disclose.

This is Bad! Jussie Has Lost CNN Too!Police sources: New evidence suggests Jussie Smollett orchestrated attack

Chicago (CNN)Two law enforcement sources with knowledge of the investigation told CNN that Chicago Police believe Jussie Smollett paid two men to orchestrate the assault.

The brothers, who were arrested Wednesday, were released without charges Friday after Chicago police cited the discovery of “new evidence.” The sources told CNN that the two men are now cooperating fully with law enforcement.

“Violence-promoting Islamist extremism currently constitutes the biggest threat to Sweden,” according to a January 15 press release from the Swedish Security Service (Säpo). “The level of the terror threat remains elevated, a three on a five-point scale. This means that a terrorist act is likely to occur,” said Klas Friberg, head of Säpo.

McCabe’s Spokeswoman Says His Words Have Been ‘Taken Out of Context’

Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe confirmed to CBS News’s Scott Pelley this week that, yes, he did green light an obstruction of justice probe against President Trump because he was “concerned” by reports that the president had been elected with the help of the Russian government. His concern grew after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey.

During his “60 Minutes” interview, McCabe also noted that he was aware of former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s supposed joke that he wear a wire during conversations with Trump. The DOJ also suggested invoking the 25th amendment to remove him from office.

Germany’s Merkel Warns U.S. Against Withdrawing From Syria, Afghanistan

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has warned that a hasty U.S. pullout from Syria runs the risk of strengthening the roles of Russia and Iran in the Middle East.

Speaking at the Munich Security Conference on February 16, Merkel questioned whether the planned U.S. withdrawal was “a good idea.”

“Will it once more strengthen the capacity of Iran and Russia to exert their influence?” she asked.

Pretty ballsy for someone whose country doesn’t even pay it’s own share in NATO.

How Dumb Is Ocasio-Cortez?

The two hottest commodities in the Democratic Party are Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Earlier this week, Omar exhibited stunning ignorance in her hostile questioning of Elliott Adams Abrams. Similarly, Ocasio-Cortez has often displayed a surprising lack of knowledge for someone who apparently is a college graduate. Don’t get me started on the “Green New Socialism.”

Andrew Coyne: What could Trudeau properly have discussed with Wilson-Raybould about SNC-Lavalin?

Consider solicitor-client privilege officially waived.

The prime minister has spent the last several days disclosing, line by tendentious line, the contents of his discussions with the former attorney general in September of last year. First we were informed that he “never directed” Jody Wilson-Raybould to put a stop to the criminal prosecution of SNC-Lavalin. Next, that he told her “the decision” was “hers alone” to make. Only latterly did we learn that this was in response to a question from her: are you directing me?

If he is permitted to discuss what was said between them, plainly so is she.
