Spain attacker showed ‘no sign of radicalisation’

The news that the two brothers were implicated in the Spain attacks shocked relatives, who said they had no idea the pair had been radicalised.

“The whole region is in shock,” Moussa’s uncle said. “He was gentle, always smiling, he didn’t smoke or drink.”

Said said his sons had shown no sign of radicalisation.

“They lived like the young people of their age, dressed like them,” said their father, who was called in by Moroccan police early on Saturday.

“Moussa was a nice boy who didn’t hurt anyone.


Silicon Valley has finally found the one line that can’t be crossed — now it has a bigger problem

In the aftermath of last year’s presidential election, tech execs were unanimous in denying that their various platforms had anything to do with the spread of falsehoods, fake news, and outright lies that allegedly contributed to President Trump’s unexpected election.

“Personally, I think the idea that fake news on Facebook, it’s a very small amount of the content, influenced the election in any way is a pretty crazy idea,” Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said less than a week after the election.

This is simply rationalization for censorship and persecution of anyone who doesn’t go along with the liberal agenda. If you want proof that private sector leftists control what we are allowed to think and say, here it is.


Georgia Judge Suspended for Comparing Attack on US Monuments to ISIS Actions

In the wake of the Charlottesville mêlée, reactionary ‘social justice’ flash mobs and assorted vigilantes have begun a campaign of attacking and destroying statues and monuments all over the country. The irrational rationale of these activists is that these historic monuments represent oppression and slavery, and therefore they must marked for ceremonial destruction.

Watch this scene in Durham, North Carolina this week where, bizarrely, the hysterical mob of ‘liberal progressive’ protesters lines up to take turns kicking the inanimate bronze statue on the ground, after it was pulled down in an impromptu ceremony. This is an emotive crowd, clearly carried away by the political hysteria.


How a data error revealed deep francophone anxiety

Quebec’s French Language Charter (Bill 101) became law 40 years ago this month, and is seen by most francophone Quebeckers as a bulwark against the erosion of French in the province. A recent fracas over erroneous census figures, however, shows how flimsy this fortification may appear in the larger campaign against the Anglicization of everything.

Statistics Canada recently announced the 2016 census showed the number of Quebeckers speaking French at home declined from 87 to 86.4 per cent over the previous five years, and 78.4 per cent declared French their mother tongue, down from 79.7 per cent. It also reported the number of mother-tongue anglophones in Quebec had increased by 0.6 per cent.


Despite Disavowals, Leading Tech Companies Help Extremist Sites Monetize Hate

Because of its “extreme hostility toward Muslims,” the website Jihadwatch.org is considered an active hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League. The views of the site’s director, Robert Spencer, on Islam led the British Home Office to ban him from entering the country in 2013.

But its designation as a hate site hasn’t stopped tech companies — including PayPal, Amazon and Newsmax — from maintaining partnerships with Jihad Watch that help to sustain it financially. PayPal facilitates donations to the site. Newsmax — the online news network run by President Donald Trump’s close friend Chris Ruddy — pays Jihad Watch in return for users clicking on its headlines. Until recently, Amazon allowed Jihad Watch to participate in a program that promised a cut of any book sales that the site generated. All three companies have policies that say they don’t do business with hate groups.

And hate groups are anyone liberals dislike.

Boston Police Chief: Our Officers Were Hit With Bottles Of Urine

“We basically wanted them separated. I’m sorry to report that we did have some bottles thrown at our officers that did have urine in it. A couple of our officers were hit with that. They were hit with a lot of stuff today,” Evans said at the press conference. “And I’m very proud of the job they did. And it goes to the professionalism of this department.”

Trump condemns ‘anti-police agitators’ as clashes break out after FIFTEEN THOUSAND anti-fascist protesters gather in Boston to completely outnumber a handful of ‘free speech’ activists at rally

The city mayor had pleaded for counter-protesters to stay away, saying their presence would draw more attention to the far-right activists and could result in violence.

However, opponents of the right-wing took over the event, chanting anti-Nazi slogans and waving signs condemning white nationalism, in order to stand against what they thought could have turned into a platform for racist propaganda.

Berkeley plans to keep dueling protest groups separate next Sunday

The city does not plan to issue protest permits, but the white nationalists and a group protesting in opposition have agreed to gather in separate locations to avoid conflict and violence, Alameda County Sheriff Greg Ahern said Friday.

Berkeley is laying the groundwork for a defense against criticism and legal battles; they want conflict between the protest groups, as long as it can be blamed on the Right – and the MSM will take care of that.

Tech companies continue efforts to banish extremist accounts

Apple is giving $1 million apiece to Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League. The iPhone maker also will match employee donations to those two groups and other human rights organizations on a two-for-one basis.

Tech companies’ efforts to banish extremist groups and individuals are continuing as a social network popular with extremists disappeared from Google’s Android app store.

Gab had already been unavailable in Apple’s store, though it remains accessible on the web.

That sounds like a threat, or at the very least a call for action. Step 1 accomplished: Identify the enemy, and we can thank Trump for flushing them out.

“Is this the day the Internet dies?”

I’ve been on the web for a long time—When I started using the web, there were about one hundred web sites in the entire world. Even in those early days, the Internet’s greatest strength has always been freedom—It’s a place you can promote, great ideas, terrible ideas, silly ideas, or just display your collection of thousands of vintage beer cans to the world. But right now that freedom is under threat like never before.


College Republicans flip script, demand the Muslim Student Association denounce Islamic terrorism

In the wake of the white supremacist terror attack in Charlottesville, liberals made a deafening call for conservatives to denounce the fringe alt-right. The SDSU College Republicans posted a statement which read we “denounce the ‘Unite the Right’ demonstrations… The hateful views of white supremacists do not represent Republicans or the Republican party as a whole.”
Now, as conservatives ask mainstream Muslims to denounce fringe, Islamic terror organizations, there seems to be a double standard; the request by the campus College Republicans has ruffled feathers in the American Muslim community.


Duelling weekend protests pitting right-wing, anti-fascists groups in Quebec City

Duelling weekend protests pitting pro-refugee groups against those opposed to “illegal immigration” have Quebec’s premier worried things might get out of hand.

“We (must) always remember all forms of extremism feed off one another, so we have to be very careful about what we say, how we say things,” Philippe Couillard said Friday.

Right-wing group La Meute is organizing a rally in a yet-to-be determined location in Quebec City against the flow of illegal entries into the province from the United States.


The Rise of the Violent Left

For progressives, Donald Trump is not just another Republican president. Seventy-six percent of Democrats, according to a Suffolk poll from last September, consider him a racist. Last March, according to a YouGov survey, 71 percent of Democrats agreed that his campaign contained “fascist undertones.” All of which raises a question that is likely to bedevil progressives for years to come: If you believe the president of the United States is leading a racist, fascist movement that threatens the rights, if not the lives, of vulnerable minorities, how far are you willing to go to stop it?


McMaster and the Deep State: Protecting Obama Agendas in a Trump Administration

The greatest threat to the United States and its Western allies today is the prevalent establishment Big Lie that Islam is a religion of peace and tolerance that poses no danger to millions of lives, spiritual and intellectual truth, and freedom itself. Yes, there are many Muslims whose practice of Islam is secularized, modified by syncretism, or purely cultural who do not follow the Jihadic teachings of the Koran and Muhammad, but Jihad (war, deception, and conquest) for the sake of Allah against all non-believers is a foundational doctrine of Islam found abundantly in the Koran and even more so in the Sunna, the sayings and actions of its principal prophet, Muhammad. Although we frequently refer to this strong Jihadic content of the Koran and Sunna as “Radical Islam” for the sake of diplomacy, commerce, and individual courtesy, “Radical Islam” is fundamentalist Islam, the true Islam.

Hit List: CNN Publishes Map of Confederate Monuments in U.S.

CNN posted a map on August 17 showing the location of approximately 1,500 Confederate monuments and/or official symbols in the U.S.

The map will, no-doubt, serve as a hit-list for the frenzied Workers World Party members and others seeking the removal and destruction of Confederate statues in city after city across America.

Spain hunts driver who killed 13 in Barcelona, says foils bomb plot

As security forces hunted for the van’s driver, who was seen escaping on foot, police said they had killed five attackers on Thursday night in Cambrils, a town south of Barcelona, to thwart a separate attack using explosive belts.

Six civilians and a police officer were injured in Cambrils when the attackers ran them over in a car, before police shot them dead and carried out controlled explosions. Police said the Cambrils incident was linked to the van attack in Barcelona.

UN refugee agency checks on asylum seekers in Emerson

The United Nations refugee agency has sent a representative to Manitoba to check how asylum seekers are being processed near the border with the U.S.

Jean-Nicolas Beuze of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees was in Emerson getting a tour of the area from Manitoba Mounties on Thursday morning. The visit comes as hundreds of asylum seekers continue to make their way into Quebec daily.


Islam’s Onslaught Of America: Multicultural Experiment Gone Mad

Last year, another Muslim terrorist shot up a meeting of “freedom of speech” at the Krudttonden, Copenhagen, Denmark. One died while dozens dove for the floor. Three cops returned fire before the terrorist raced away in a car.

On the heels of the Paris, France killings, Nice, France, Brussels, Belgium and the Kosher Café killings, Europeans walk the streets of their cities in fear of further Muslim attacks. Ironically, Muslims don’t fear any attacks in the Muslim “no go zones” because their own people won’t kill other Muslims inside Islamic strongholds. Other than the usual “honor killings” of wives and daughters for stepping out of line!


Something stinks about Charlottesville

Evidence is turning up from, of all places, the Southern Poverty Law Center, as well as Breitbart and others, that this character, Jason Kessler, who organized the suspicious and supposed Alt-Right demonstration in Charlottesville, Va. that blew up in everyone’s face, is a cunning lefty holdover from the Occupy Wall Street movement and a former Barack Obama supporter. I smell Soros money, sabotage, and Democrat dirty tricks here.


Mozilla Joins George Soros’s Efforts In Launching A Strike Against “Fake News”

Mozilla said it was “investing in people, programs and projects” in a new initiative to “disrupt misinformation online” calling for a “Mozilla Information Trust Initiative,” or MITI for short, Business Insider reported.

They further stated the “internet’s ability to power democratic society suffers greatly” because of fabricated stories, such as the “Pope endorsing Donald Trump for the U.S. presidency” or a “dead FBI agent killed in a mysterious fire with information on former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton” – just two examples of stories that turned out to be bogus.


Canada sees ‘unsustainable’ spike in asylum seekers at U.S. border

The number of asylum seekers who illegally crossed the U.S. border into Canada more than tripled last month, according to Canadian government data released on Thursday, as migrants worried about the U.S. administration’s immigration crackdown head north.

More than 3,100 people walked across the border illegally in July to file refugee claims and were arrested, up from 884 in June, the federal government said.

Ninety-six percent of them went to Quebec, where an influx of asylum seekers, primarily Haitians, is sparking a backlash from opposition politicians and anti-immigrant groups in the primarily French-speaking province.
