WAPO Pushes Fake News That Thomas Jefferson Held WH Iftar Dinner to ‘Celebrate Ramadan’

The establishment media became upset this weekend after President Donald Trump canceled the “White House Muslim Iftar Dinner tradition started by Thomas Jefferson.” But the media is wrong in every respect. Thomas Jefferson never held any Iftar dinner and only three out of 45 presidents ever hosted one, so there is no such “tradition” to cancel.

Amy B. Wang of the Washington Post led the pack with this nonsense that Thomas Jefferson held the “first Iftar dinner” with a June 24 piece entitled, “Trump just ended a long tradition of celebrating Ramadan at the White House.”


A ‘very credible’ new study on Seattle’s $15 minimum wage has bad news for liberals

The city is gradually increasing the hourly minimum to $15 over several years. Already, though, some employers have not been able to afford the increased minimums. They’ve cut their payrolls, putting off new hiring, reducing hours or letting their workers go, the study found.

The costs to low-wage workers in Seattle outweighed the benefits by a ratio of three to one, according to the study, conducted by a group of economists at the University of Washington who were commissioned by the city. The study, published as a working paper Monday by the National Bureau of Economic Research, has not yet been peer reviewed.


Poll: Majority of Canadians would consider voting for a Sikh, transgender or unilingual prime minister

Is Canada ready for a prime minister who covers his or her head for religious reasons?

Just barely, says a new poll published today by the Angus Reid Institute.

The poll is likely to become an immediate point of discussion in the NDP leadership race where Jagmeet Singh, a Sikh who wears a turban, is considered among the leaders.


Chicago ‘Dyke March’ Bans Jewish Pride Flags: ‘They Made People Feel Unsafe’

Three people carrying Jewish Pride flags were asked to leave the annual Chicago Dyke March on Saturday.

The Chicago-based LGBTQ newspaper Windy City Times quoted a Dyke March collective member as saying the rainbow flag with the Star of David in the middle “made people feel unsafe,” and that the march was “pro-Palestinian” and “anti-Zionist.”


‘Environmental inequity’ caused by ‘colonialism,’ course claims

Environmental justice is a “timely and highly relevant” topic, Hoover asserts in the course description, claiming that “around the world, the brunt of environmental inequality has disproportionately impacted developing countries, low-income communities, and people of color.”

The class will explore issues including toxic chemical exposure and climate change, followed by an examination of their causes, which Hoover says include “regulatory failure, discrimination, colonialism, and the commodification of land and labor.”


Black Lives Matter Protesters Angry That Police Marched In Pride Parade

The city’s parade organizers originally chose to exclude police following the acquittal of Jeronimo Yanez — the police officer who shot Castile in 2016 — but decided to re-invite them Friday, according to Star Tribune. Over 30 officers marched in the parade, including Janeé Harteau, Minneapolis’s first lesbian police chief, who led the effort to have officers reinstated.


Oregon: Saudi who ran over, killed 15-year old girl skips bail week before trial

Abdulrahman Sameer Noorah, 21, was due to stand trial in Portland last week but vanished nine days before the start date.

He was on bail on a single count of manslaughter for allegedly killing 15-year-old Fallon Smart by running her over as she crossed the road in August 2016.

Noorah, who was studying on a scholarship at Portland Community College, was driving on a suspended license at the time.


Portland mayor demands to know why cops detained Antifa activists after being pelted with urine, feces

Trump supporters in Portland, Ore., and Antifa members. Police formed a barrier between the two groups to prevent escalation of an already very intense situation.

The Antifa thugs began pelting the police, in riot gear, with balloons filled with feces and urine, as well rocks and pieces of brick. That would seem to be more than ample justification for arrests and charges for rioting and/or assaulting police officers.

Not in Portland, where liberalism is king. Keep in mind, these criminal anarchists were not actually arrested. They were simply detained and allowed to go free within an hour.


Trump Blasts Obama On Russia: “He Didn’t ‘Choke’…He Expected Clinton To Win So He Colluded Or Obstructed”

Former President Obama, political royalty on the left and a media darling who even sent a “thrill up the leg” of Chris Matthews, has drawn a rather surprising amount of public criticism of late over his handling of Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election. Everyone from Congressional democrats to CNN is suddenly curious why Obama didn’t do more?


‘Before tragedy strikes’: Liberals launch centre to prevent home-grown terrorism

A special adviser will be named in the coming months to oversee the local outreach and research projects funded through the Canada Centre for Community Engagement and Prevention of Violence.

The centre will have dedicated staff, but will be located within the existing Public Safety Canada space.

Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale said Canada must become a world leader in understanding and dealing with radicalization that leads to violence in order to retain its national character as an open, diverse society that is also safe and secure.

Pope Supports Merkel On Africa, Migrants And Climate Change

Pope Francis and Angela Merkel share the same aim to “bring down walls,” not build them, and agree on the importance of international treaties and commitment to Africa. This is what emerges from the encounter – a “cordial discussion”, as the Holy See defines it in a brief communique – between Pope Francis and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, received yesterday with her husband, Joachim Sauer in the Vatican apostolic Palace.

“When Fox says that DT colluding with the enemy is not a crime, the fight to save Democracy is now an all out war. US-Stay strong. #Treason,” he wrote.

Does fighting radicalization actually make us safer?

Given recent attacks in Manchester, London and Michigan and subsequent terror investigations, we’ve been hearing a lot about whether the perpetrators became radicalized.

This has renewed conversations about how to combat potential radicalization.


The Left’s violence is only logical

Hollywood liberals regularly use violent rhetoric against conservatives. College campuses have become places where dissident speech will be beaten down, literally, by Antifa thugs in black masks. Under the guise of protests against racial injustice, Black Lives Matter creates riots. Property is destroyed. Fires are set. Individuals are assaulted. The civil society seems threatened — all by the radical Left.

While what’s happening on the Left has been well documented, few are exploring the question of “Why?”

The violence of modern leftists is a feature of their political philosophy, which rejects natural rights secured by government in favor of legal rights created by political power. Violence is the lowest form of political power, and the use of violence is consistent with progressive political philosophy.


Float in Montreal parade sparks allegations of racism

The video shows pop singer Annie Villeneuve on Rue St. Denis on a float being pushed by what appears to be only people of colour. Surrounding the float are droves of choir members, all dressed head-to-toe in white.

The video has been shared more than 12,000 times, and has a running thread of hundreds of comments. Many of the commenters are critical of the event’s lack of diversity, saying the float looked like some kind of historical depiction of slavery.


White South Africans are dying and Twitter is actively censoring it.

A long time ago I read the 600+ pages of the atrocities commited during Pinochet’s dictartorship. I’m no leftie and I know of the recurrent memes of throwing commies off helicopters, but these were the most atrocious acts I had ever heard off. In my own country. I won’t go into detail because of the horrific nature, but I remember that sensation going through my spine while reading it, it’s very distinct, and I hoped to never feel it again. But someone mentioned South Africa…


‘Anti-Racism Strategist’ Tariq Nasheed Has Said Some Pretty Racist Things in the Past

Tariq Nasheed spends his day on Twitter dot-com railing against white supremacy and hidden white supremacist symbols. He’s famous for such hot takes like “the Cleveland Facebook killer may be used as an excuse for white supremacists to go around shooting black people.” He even appeared on Tucker Carlson’s Fox show to chastise the police for shooting the OSU terrorist last year.

Nasheed calls himself an “anti-racism strategist.”

But not too long ago, Nasheed wasn’t an anti-racism strategist at all—he was just plain racist.


Not-so-new Canadian: How welcoming is N.L. for immigrants?

I’ve benefited from the legendary Newfoundland and Labrador hospitality, and every day I cherish my network of valued friends.

However, even my inherently upbeat personality is severely tested by an also gloomy economy. I struggle with the sense of gratitude many immigrants and refugees feel about being in a palpably safer place that precludes them from looking at their new home too critically.

I’m not offended by the term “come from away,” but despite the recent, well-deserved positive publicity associated with the phrase thanks to Broadway, I have felt the insulting isolation that isn’t always very welcoming to newcomers.


Burned Quran, cut up pages left outside California mosques

Two Islamic centers in Northern California were the sites of possible hate crimes during the last days of Ramadan, law enforcement officials said.

A burned Quran filled with bacon was found outside a Sacramento mosque Saturday, the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department said. It was hanging by a handcuff from a temporary fence outside the Masjid Annur Islamic Center.


6 Schools That Can’t Produce One Student Proficient in English or Math

A Project Baltimore investigation has found five Baltimore City high schools and one middle school do not have a single student proficient in the state tested subjects of math and English. These are the dumbed-down Common Core tests.

Despite the fact that the students are illiterate, many are on track to pass and graduate. At least half will graduate.


Migrant Who Frequently Visited Kindergarten May Have Given Children Tuberculosis

The migrant, originally from Yemen, spent five months from January to May in the community, meeting families and spending time at a local kindergarten. Brought to Bünsdorf by the local church, the man is said to have had an infectious case of tuberculosis and children aged three to six may be affected, leaving parents outraged, Eckernförderung Zeitung reports.

‘You’re celebrating colonization’: 4 Indigenous people share why they won’t be singing O Canada on July 1

For Shane Henry, it used to be about donning the red and white to celebrate Canada on July 1, but this year — on Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation — he’s not feeling so patriotic.

“Putting a bunch of flags on my skin and jumping in praise saying, ‘Oh, look at our great country and look at all that we’ve accomplished’ — that part of it isn’t so comfortable with me anymore,” explained the University of Saskatchewan PhD student and researcher with the Saskatoon Tribal Council.

What Sharia Prescribes: Same as the Ten Commandments?

Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, of the “Ground Zero mosque”, once again wrote a deeply inaccurate article reprimanding Americans for their supposedly “right-wing caricature” of Islamic law, sharia, which he insists is not a threat to American law. In his recent article “The silly American fear of sharia law”, he denied that sharia is incompatible with US laws and the constitution. Oh, really?

Hundreds of Swedes went to the war fight for ISIS – Returnees today

Expressen has mapped the returnees, the 150 Swedish suspicious IS terrorists who returned silently to Sweden. While they posed openly on Facebook as invincible warriors, often with freaked (?) dead bodies. Today they live as shadows and do everything to avoid being recognized. We have enough problems, say one of them – and refuse to meet. However, during the ongoing offensive against IS, more of the 112 from Sweden who remain in the war – those who are most radical – are expected to return.


Internet Disavows Youtube Over #Morethanarefugee Video

A video produced by Google company YouTube is receiving widespread backlash over its promotion of an open borders agenda.

As of writing, the video, “#MoreThanARefugee,” trending at #20, has accumulated over 132k downvotes versus 54k upvotes, indicating Youtube’s stance on the hot button issue is highly unpopular.


OPSEU uncorks the propaganda in “Liqileaks” ads: Won’t you please save an LCBO worker?

If not, maybe it’s because you haven’t heard their tragic stories first-hand.


Amnesty for militants in Syria’s Raqqa aims to promote stability

A civil council expected to rule Raqqa once Islamic State is dislodged from the Syrian city pardoned 83 of the jihadist group’s low-ranking militants on Saturday, a goodwill gesture designed to promote stability.

The U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have gained significant ground in the battle for Raqqa, the operational base for Islamic State over the past three years and a symbol of its self-proclaimed caliphate.


US-China Agree On Need For “Complete, Irreversible” Korean Denuclearization

After terse public exchanges this week, each proclaiming the other is not working hard enough on ‘solving’ the Kim Jong Un ‘situation’, Chinese state media said on Saturday, reporting the results of high level talks in Washington this week, that China and the United States agreed that efforts to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula should be “complete, verifiable and irreversible.”

The week started off tense, with the President tweeting that “while I greatly appreciate the efforts of President Xi & China to help with North Korea, it has not worked out. At least I know China tried!”


Polish MP Schools BBC Host On Refugees: ‘How Many Terror Attacks Have You Had In London?’

In an interview posted to YouTube on Thursday, Tarczynski is asked by a BBC host why Poland is not honoring their agreement to take in refugees.

“Well, basically because people who voted for us they said no,” Tarczynski stated matter-of-factly. “The previous government had this agreement and now Polish people said no, we don’t want to have this threat in Poland … and we have to respect them.”


Venice Gets Its First Ever Transgender Gondolier

Alexandra Hai, 50, (pictured) fought for a decade to break into the male-dominated guild of gondoliers, which had not employed a woman in 900 years. During that time she failed the gondola test three times and was also fined once by police for illegal gondoliering, leading to accusations of discrimination. In 2007 she was granted the right to become a private gondolier.


Idaho teenager becomes millionaire by investing $1,000 gift in Bitcoin – and wins bet with his parents

Three years ago Erik Finman made a bet with his parents. He had just dropped out of high school, finding it a waste of time, and was being taught at home. If he was a millionaire by the time he turned 18, his parents said, they would not force him to go to university.

Last week Mr Finman declared victory.


Trudeau Loses His Cool When Confronted With Truth

International bankers, global corporations, highly paid bureaucrats, China, and the politically correct elites have won big under Trudeau.

As for the rest of us Canadians, we’ve lost.

Germanic Umma

Germany will be Islamic in about two decades. The process by which this happens and the results of this transformation will be consequential beyond measure, not just for Europe, but for the world. And Germany’s acceptance of Islam as its national religion will be peaceful and seamless. In making this prediction, I am certainly not alone; many books are being written about the fall of Europe. Yet while many assume this is the “end” of Europe, that the wave of Islamic immigration and migration will cause a collapse,. I am not so certain.


You can’t disconnect terrorism from Islam, Couillard says in wake of Flint attack

Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard is facing criticism from Muslim community leaders after saying there is a link between Islam and terrorism.

Couillard made the comments Thursday in Quebec City. He was asked by a reporter whether he was concerned Quebec Muslims could face a backlash following the arrest of a Montrealer in connection with an attack earlier this week at a Michigan airport.


Freighter Was On Autopilot When It Hit U.S. Destroyer

The Philippines-flagged cargo ship ACX Crystal was under control of a computerized navigation system that was steering and guiding the container vessel, according to officials familiar with preliminary results of an ongoing Navy investigation.

Investigators so far found no evidence the collision was deliberate.

Nevertheless, an accident during computerized navigation raises the possibility the container ship’s computer system could have been hacked and the ship deliberately steered into the USS Fitzgerald, an Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer.


Bomber planning attack on Mecca’s Grand Mosque blows himself up after plot foiled

Saudi security forces on Friday foiled a suicide attack on the Grand Mosque in the Muslim holy city of Mecca, cornering the would-be attacker in an apartment, where he blew himself up, the Interior Ministry said.

In a statement read on state television, the ministry said that three cells had planned the attack on worshippers and security forces at the mosque as the Muslim holy month of Ramadan nears its climax.


EU Greens Call for Brussels to Send ‘Whole Villages’ of Syrians to Eastern Europe

Vice-President of the Greens-European Free Alliance group, Ska Keller, told the Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung that it is essential the EU implement a “solidarity distribution” system because migrants should be spread throughout Europe.

Noting how a large proportion of the migrants resettled in Baltic states like Lithuania quickly left to seek higher welfare payments in countries like Germany, the Green MEP said Brussels should send migrants to Eastern Europe in much greater numbers.


Unveiling clock showing 8,411 days left for Israel, Iranians rage against Jewish state

TEHRAN — Iran held major anti-Israel rallies across the country Friday, with protesters chanting “Death to Israel” and declaring that destroying the Jewish state is “the Muslim world’s top priority.”

Iranians participating in Quds Day rallies also called for unity among pro-Palestinian groups against the “child-murdering” Israeli government, according to Iran’s Tasnim News Agency.

Marchers in Tehran headed from various points of the city to the Friday prayer ceremony at Tehran University. Similar demonstrations were held in other cities and towns in Iran.


Left-wing college students under the spell of “collective psychosis,” warns liberal professor who was targeted by an insane student mob

A self-proclaimed liberal professor has come out in condemnation of what took place at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington, last month when an angry student mob swarmed the campus and imposed anarchy for several days over delusions of institutional racism and inequality.

Professor Ben Weinstein became a victim of the protest after students aggressively targeted him simply for his refusal to leave the campus for anti-white day. Because his skin color is white, Weinstein had his classroom surrounded by the racist mass of student terrorists, which began shouting and chanting at him in an attempt to bully him into succumbing to their demands.


Minneapolis Installs Sharia Hotline to Report Non-Muslims Who Speak Against Islam

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.”


THE FBI’S BIZARRE COVER-UP OF THE GOP BASEBALL SHOOTING

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

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.

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.

VIDEO: Saying ‘Radical Islam’ is ‘definitely wrong,’ students say

Last month’s terror attacks in London killed dozens and renewed the debate over the use of the term “Radical Islam.”

Proponents of the phrase, including President Donald Trump, say it’s important that we accurately label the root cause of these attacks if we are ever to prevent them in the future, while opponents contend that the term simply exacerbates the problem of terrorism, and offends more people than it helps.


The Leftist News Media, Unmasked

If there’s anything that the most recent presidential campaign and its aftermath have made crystal clear, it’s that the major news media in America are teeming with leftists who overtly and covertly promote leftist worldviews and agendas.

The Department of Justice has become an advocate for the establishment of mosques in America. It is as if there were some congressional affirmative action mandate. The DOJ’s own statistics reveal a sharp escalation in intervention efforts on behalf of Islamic complainants, mostly involving mosque disputes with local zoning authorities.

Next up: a special counsel to probe Team Obama’s obstruction of justice

Then, standing outside 100 Wellington St. — the former U.S. embassy set to become a designated space for First Nations, Inuit and Metis people by 2023 — Trudeau pointed at the former Langevin Block a stone’s throw down the street.

As the first lesbian bishop in the Church of Sweden, she established her groundbreaking credentials, whether you agree with the move or not.
