Refugees in the Netherlands are angry because they have to clean their own toilets – Call Syrian prisons a better place

Inhabitants of a Dutch asylum centre in Alkmaar are angry about the building’s new cleaning policy, Dutch newspaper De Volkskrant reports. The refugees now have to clean their own toilets and need a key to visit their own toilet block.

“They want us to clean our own toilets on our knees,” says Ahmad from Palestine. Another migrant says: “Even Syria’s prisons are better!” Bystanders laugh about it. Abu Barak from Syria tells the newspaper he is “in shock” and asks: “Is this the Netherlands?”

BUCKLE UP: ‘Unsafe’ Diamond and Silk to TESTIFY Before Congress

Proud pro-Trump duo Diamond and Silk are heading to the nation’s capital next week; testifying before Congress over allegations of anti-conservative bias on Facebook and other social media platforms.

According to the Washington Post, the fearless twosome have been invited to speak before the House Judiciary Committee just weeks after Facebook labeled them “unsafe to the community” for their vocal support of the President.

Democratic Party files suit alleging conspiracy by Trump campaign, Russia, WikiLeaks to sway 2016 election

The Democratic Party on Friday filed a multimillion-dollar federal lawsuit against Trump campaign officials, the Russian government and WikiLeaks alleging a widespread conspiracy to tilt the 2016 election in Donald Trump’s favor.

Calling it an “all-out assault on our democracy,” the Democratic National Committee filed the civil suit in federal district court in Manhattan. The suit amounts to another legal broadside related to the 2016 race, on top of the special counsel’s ongoing Russia probe and the FBI raid on Trump’s personal attorney last week.

Watch: Rempel Asks Hussen To Stop Making Excuses For Illegal Border Crossing Crisis, Hussen Responds… With Excuses

During a recent showdown in Question Period, Conservative Immigration Critic Michelle Rempel asked Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen to stop giving excuses, and finally explain how he will end the growing illegal border crossing crisis.

Hussen responded with excuses.

He even tried to shift blame to the Conservatives, for not voting in favour of more government spending on ‘processing’ illegal border crossers.

Another 50 of Australia’s rejected asylum seekers are on the way to Any Town, USA

Former Australian Border Force commissioner Roman Quaedvlieg says he is confident the Trump administration will accept its upper limit of 1250 refugees under a deal with the federal government, and said the US might take even more people.
The government yesterday seized on reports a further 50 refugees in Manus Island and Nauru had been cleared for resettlement in the US to argue the government’s border protection policies were working.

Dick’s Sporting Goods to destroy all unsold firearms pulled from shelves after Parkland shooting

The sports retailer decided to destroy the assault-style rifles instead of returning them to the manufacturer, the Pittsburgh Post Gazette reported. On Feb. 28, 2018, the Pittsburgh-based company announced it would immediately stop selling assault-style rifles and ban the sale of all guns to anyone under 21. It was not immediately clear how many firearms will be destroyed.

“We are in the process of destroying all firearms and accessories that are no longer for sale as a result of our February 28th policy change,” a spokesperson from Dick’s Sporting Goods told the media outlet. “We are destroying the firearms in accordance with federal guidelines and regulations.”

Matters of Leadership: How Ontarians feel about those running to be Premier

The election is anyone’s to win but that Doug Ford and PCs have the easier path to victory and Kathleen Wynne and the Liberals face immense head winds as they seek re-election.

One in five Ontarians are undecided at this stage and many will likely not vote. But those who may, there’s a strong desire for change and few have positive impressions of Premier Wynne.

“Ford Nation” is a small but sizeable group of Ontarians who share an extraordinary affinity for Doug Ford. He connects with these Ontarians more than any other politician, and they are enthusiastic to be his tribe. They feel he fights for them, speaks their language, and doesn’t talk down to them. Though they do not suffer from the pronounced economic and cultural anxiety of the Trump voter, they are nonetheless a group with some similarities – a disinclination for elites, mainstream media, and the “scourge” of political correctness.

Computer system transcribes words users “speak silently”

MIT researchers have developed a computer interface that can transcribe words that the user verbalizes internally but does not actually speak aloud.

The system consists of a wearable device and an associated computing system. Electrodes in the device pick up neuromuscular signals in the jaw and face that are triggered by internal verbalizations — saying words “in your head” — but are undetectable to the human eye. The signals are fed to a machine-learning system that has been trained to correlate particular signals with particular words.

Another step toward detecting thought crime.

UN refugee agency rep in Canada says asylum seekers are not a threat

The UN refugee agency’s representative in Canada, Jean-Nicolas Beuze, said Monday he wants to dispel the “myths” about the record number of asylum seekers that entered Canada from the U.S. in 2017, as fears abound that Canada’s immigration system is stretched to a breaking point.

Beuze said the goal of his press conference on Parliament Hill was “to dispel some fears within the population that those people who are arriving in large numbers in Canada pose any threat to the security of Canadians or are people who are not entitled—for whatever reason—to the protection of Canadian authorities.”

Kathleen Wynne compares Doug Ford to Donald Trump, saying he ‘traffics in smears and lies’

Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne blasted Progressive Conservative Leader Doug Ford on Wednesday, comparing him to U.S. President Donald Trump and saying he “stands for nothing other than Doug Ford.”

“Doug Ford sounds like Donald Trump and that’s because he is like Donald Trump. Ugly, vicious, a brand of politics that traffics in smears and lies,” Wynne told an audience at the Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in Toronto.

“He will say anything about anyone at any time. Because just like Trump, it is all about him.”

She just gave Trump validation to respond – definite mistake.

Islamic invasion: More than 90 Muslims, nearly all Democrats, running for public office across the U.S.

Fayaz Nawabi has never met President Trump. But he credits the president with convincing him to run for office.

Nawabi, a 31-year-old candidate for San Diego City Council, supports almost everything that Trump opposes: He is pro-affordable housing, pro-environment, pro-immigrant and pro-refugee. That makes him part of the blue wave of new liberal candidates spurred to run by Trump’s election and policies.

But Nawabi is also part of a notable subset: the blue Muslim wave.

Canada cuts Bible camp’s funding after it refused to support abortion

An Alberta summer Bible camp may have to cut staff this year after it lost out on Canada Summer Job grants for refusing to sign the Liberal government’s pro-abortion attestation when applying for funds.

“It just feels tough that the reason that we got … not approved is because of our beliefs,” said Jon Gartly, executive director of the Southern Alberta Bible Camp told the CBC. “That’s a tough one to swallow.”

“i Will Never Be Fired”: Pro-Terror Muslim Prof Calls Barbara Bush A “Racist”

As Michelle Obama likes to say, When they go low, we go higher. Here’s another example of how high her movement goes. A Fresno State professor called former first lady Barbara Bush an “amazing racist” who raised a “war criminal,” and expressed no concern that she could be fired or reprimanded for her outspokenness on social media. Randa Jarrar, a professor in Fresno State’s Department of English, expressed her displeasure with the Bush family within an hour after the official announcement that Mrs. Bush died Tuesday at the age of 92. “Barbara Bush was a generous and smart and amazing racist who, along with her husband, raised a war criminal,” Jarrar wrote on Twitter. “F— outta here with your nice words.”

More than 50 NYU groups pledge to boycott Israel

More than 50 student groups at New York University have pledged to boycott Israeli goods and academic institutions, and are urging the school’s administration to join the cause.

“Propaganda seems to be more important than the reality of what is really going on” Roger Waters speaks out against White Helmets

The Syrian Civil Defense, more commonly known as the White Helmets, has emerged as one of the most effective propaganda tools for Islamist militants in Syria, with the group staging numerous provocations to draw in foreign military intervention to aid the militants in their quest to establish Shariah law in the Arab state.

English singer Roger Waters, who was a member of the Pink Floyd rock band, slammed the White Helmets as “a fake organization that exists only to create propaganda for jihadists and terrorists,” during a concert in Barcelona on April 13. His comments were met with cheers from the crowd.

We’ve reached our limit to house undocumented asylum seekers, Quebec says

The Quebec government says it is facing the prospect of even more asylum seekers entering the province from the United States this year and wants the federal government to come up with a plan to deal with the influx.

Mandatory Visit To African-American Museum Now Part Of Training For DC Cops

Thanks to the renewed focus on the oft-demonized police after an unarmed black man was shot dead in his backyard after officers mistook a cellphone for a gun, the war on cops is once again raging. Black Lives Matters is reenergized and the Democrats who are in control of many of the nation’s largest cities are using their power to place new restrictions on the police who are being forced to operate in a climate that is increasingly hostile and dangerous to them thanks to the media sensationalizing mistakes like the killing of Stephon Clarke.

Hypocrite: Trudeau Threatens To Withhold $62 Million From Saskatchewan For Opposing Carbon Tax, Yet Gave B.C. $4.1 Billion Despite Trans Mountain Opposition

There is a massive double-standard in how Justin Trudeau is handling fights between the federal government and provinces.

When Saskatchewan refused to impose Trudeau’s job-killing carbon tax, Trudeau threatened to take away $62 million in ‘green infrastructure’ funding.

Yet, even as the B.C. NDP was ignoring federal law and blocking the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion, Justin Trudeau gave Horgan’s government $4.1 billion in infrastructure funding.

Clinton Campaign, DNC Laundered $84 Million to State Parties To Avoid Campaign Finance Laws – Report

A pro-Donald Trump political action committee filed suit in federal court against the Federal Elections Commission on Monday, alleging the agency failed to take action on a money-laundering scheme involving the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

“The Committee to Defend the President (CDP), a political action committee formally known as Stop Hillary PAC, filed its complaint with the FEC in December 2017 with the claims that the Hillary Victory Fund (HVF) solicited cash from big-name donors, and allegedly sent that money through state chapters and back to the DNC before ending up with the Clinton campaign,” Fox News reported.

No Jihad: French court orders baby boy’s name be changed

Various French media report that on Friday the court in Toulouse ordered the vowels in the baby’s name be reversed to form the name ‘Jahid,’ as allowed by the French Civil Code.

The incident apparently stems from a common misconception that the word ‘Jihad’ translates as “holy war” in Arabic – when it actually means “struggle” or “effort.” However, as France is reeling from a number of devastating terror attacks over the last number of years, the term was deemed not to be in the child’s best interest.

This polling shows just how tough it will be for Kathleen Wynne’s Liberals to get re-elected

Fresh polling provided to CBC News shows the depth of opposition to Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne and her party, but suggests her government’s big budget promises could swing some NDP voters into the Liberal camp.

The polling conducted in early April by Innovative Research Group shows Doug Ford and the Ontario PC party with 37 per cent support, followed by the Liberals at 26 per cent, the NDP at 18 and the Green party at six per cent. Ten per cent of voters said they were undecided.

Ford is tapping into “a sense of anger that governments are governing in the interest of special interests and not in the interest of real folks,” said the polling firm’s owner Greg Lyle, in an interview with CBC News.

Iranian Drone Shot Down In Israel In Feb. Held Explosives, Was Flying Bomb

This explains a lot, not just about Israelis counterattack to the Iranian drone entering her airspace in February, but also Israel’s attack on the Syrian T-4 military air base last week.

When Israel first conducted a counterstrike on Syrian air defense assets after the drone was shot down on 10 February 2018, the drone intrusion alone justified the strike on Syria. The Assad regime had allowed Iran to launch the drone and use it to intrude in Israeli airspace. Israel can’t allow such intrusions to go unanswered. Deterrence is essential; otherwise, Israeli forces could be quickly overwhelmed trying to maintain an effective, but wholly defensive, posture.

Refugee Family Set to Win Millions from NHS for Not Using Foreign Language to Explain Importance of Feeding Newborn

The child of the Rajatheepan family, originally from Sri Lanka, has been left with severe brain damage because midwives did not explain the importance of feeding the newborn regularly, a judge has ruled.

The boy, now eight, was born in a healthy condition at King George Hospital in Goodmayes, Essex, in July 2009, but was left limp and sick after not being fed for 15 hours.

Judge Martin McKenna said medics failed to overcome the language barrier, which directly resulted in the baby suffering the catastrophic injuries.

Untreated sewage pollutes water across the country

Nearly 120 million cubic metres of untreated sewage and runoff entered Canadian waterways in 2016, StarMetro has learned.

Sweden: Serial Rapist Convicted For The Third Time- Yet “impossible” To Expel

Nigerian David Akinremi, 29, in Göteborg has once again been convicted of rape. It is the third time since 2011 that he is convicted of the same sexual attack crime against different women.

But under current legislation, it is seemingly impossible to expel him back to Africa – simply because he has received a Swedish passport one year after registering in Sweden.

Pipeline shortage to cost the economy $15.6 billion this year: report

Lack of pipelines and massive discounts for Canadian heavy oil could cost the economy $15.6 billion this year, or three-fourths of a point from the country’s GDP, according to economists at Scotiabank.

“Reliance on the existing pipeline network and rail shipments to bring Canadian oil to market has a demonstrable impact on Canada’s well-being, with consequences that extend well beyond Alberta,” Scotiabank senior vice-president and chief economist Jean-Francois Perrault and commodity economist Rory Johnston wrote in a report released Tuesday.

Swedes don’t want to be teachers anymore due to dangerous school environments

Sweden has growing difficulties in recruiting teachers due to a lack of respect and safety at its schools. Many teachers witness harassments, violence and teenagers that threaten and sexually abuse fellow pupils and teachers.

Swedish schools are now planning on reinforcing security measures in schools due to the aggravated situation. There are a growing number of violent conflicts, often involving knives and other kinds of weapons.

Mounties issue warning after alleged Port Alberni vigilante attack

A man who is the subject of an ongoing investigation into child luring was injured in what appears to be an act of citizens dishing out punishment themselves, Port Alberni RCMP say.

Police were called to a house in Port Alberni on Thursday and found a 28-year-old man secured with restraints. Officers released him and took him to hospital for treatment.

“Preliminary indications are that the man was restrained as a result of vigilante actions,” an RCMP statement said.

The people who restrained the man could face charges of assault causing bodily harm and forcible confinement.

Black People Want To Beat Up Taylor Swift For Covering An Earth Wind And Fire Song

The worst thing to happen to black people since Obama left office occurred yesterday (Friday the 13th). Taylor Swift released a cover of the Earth Wind and Fire classic “September.” I know, it’s almost too much to bear. You see, to black people the pop star is a symbol of whiteness, something they can’t stand, so for her to “disrespect” a beloved black song is on par with flying a Confederate flag. It’s so bad, some are even calling for Swift to be physically beaten for this “hate crime.”

Sweden’s Reputation Is Being Tarnished

The Swedish Academy, which awards the Nobel Prize in Literature, has been hit by a major crisis: in the aftermath of a corruption and harassment scandal involving the husband of Academy member Katarina Frostenson, three of the other members who are elected for life have walked out.

“The scandal that has hit the Swedish Academy is growing worse every day. At the centre of the drama is Katarina Frostenson, who is married to someone accused of sexual harassment and with whom she runs a cultural institution that has received large sums of money from the Academy over the years.

In this situation it would only be appropriate for Frostenson to vacate her seat out of a sense of self-preservation and regard for the institution she represents. But clearly she intends to stay put. … With each day the scandal continues, the reputation of the Nobel Prize and ultimately of Sweden as a nation is being further tarnished.”

Oh come on – no one takes the Nobel prize seriously after it was awarded to Gore and Obama. Besides, Sweden won’t exist in 15 years.

Campus Racists Throw ‘No Whites Allowed’ Pool Party

It would be all over the media, people would be getting doxed on social media, expulsions and firings would be called for and maybe even Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson would fly in to lead the protests. But in 2018, it is fine to discriminate against white people and many influential figures like politicians, media figures and celebs actually condone such hateful bigotry.

A Missouri Democrat who made news last year over a Facebook post where she admitted that it would make her warm and fuzzy if someone killed President Trump is back.

Chappelle-Nadal is now focusing her ire on white politicians in both parties and joining the long list of grifters who have been pushing the idea of slave reparations (translation: free stuff) as a remedy for all that ails African-Americans.

University of Washington: Prof put on probation for mentioning her Christian faith in front of Muslim student

This is how Islamic supremacist and Leftist students are shutting down free discourse all over the country: by claiming that it makes them feel “unsafe.” At Stanford University, fascist students and faculty whipped up hysteria on campus in advance of my visit by claiming that my telling the truth about the nature and magnitude of the jihad threat would make Muslim students on campus feel “unsafe.” There was not a shred of evidence to support this claim, and of course no one was harmed in the aftermath of my appearance there, which was disrupted in any case by a planned and scripted walkout in which administrators made sure as few people as possible would hear me by preventing others who wanted to attend from entering after the walkout. This is life on university campuses today: American universities are no longer centers of higher learning, but are radioactive wastelands of hard-Left indoctrination.

Obama Harvested 190 Million Facebook Users Data To Win In 2012, Where Was The Congressional Hearing

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg appeared before Congress Tuesday but the hearing was far from achieving any meaningful headway. Most of Zuckerberg’s responses included “I’ll have my team follow up with you on that,” or “I’ll have to check with my team.” The answers that didn’t involve referring to his team saw Zuckerberg citing the company’s basic policy and functions. In reality, the questions posed by most of the Senators revealed they did not truly understand how the platform worked. One Senator did manage to scrape at the heart of the issue when he referred to the 2012 Obama campaign’s use of Facebook to win the election and that is where the true hypocrisy of this hearing lies.

When Will The Media Finally Get Over The 2016 Election?

We’re now into our second year of theorizing about what went wrong in 2016, which is itself illustrative of the prejudice in much of political media. Most of these stories have nothing to do with Donald Trump’s policies or his behavior — topics well worth covering — and everything to do with creating the impression that the electoral process was dangerously flawed. Whether The Comey Letter swung the election or Fake News swung the election or Facebook data mining swung the election, there have been so many stories intimating that our democratic institutions have been subverted, that you sense certain people might be reluctant to accept the sanctity of the process.

Recently, in a piece for the National Post, senior political columnist Andrew Coyne remarked on how the Trudeau government’s Summer Jobs edict has tremendously backfired on them. As he so aptly put it:

In Ontario, get ready for a grudge match

And so it starts. Even before the “official” beginning of the provincial election campaign, the deluge of polls has begun.

And the news isn’t good for the governing Liberals. The CBC’s Eric Grenier, who compiles an aggregation of publicly available polls and has historically been quite accurate in his predictions, says that if an election were held today, it is more likely than not that the PCs would form a majority government.

But the election is not going to be held today. It is, of course going to be held on June 7 after what I predict will be one of the most ruthless and cut-throat campaigns Ontario has ever seen.

The Times Are A Changing As Bob Dylan Puts Out Gay Love Song

Bob Dylan may now be an old man but he’s still churning out the tunes and as one of the figures that the hippies looked to for inspiration in the 1960s, he may one day been lionized by the SJWs of today.

Dylan’s career has spanned decades but none as tumultuous as when the young folk singer appeared out of nowhere to sing songs of social protest that perfectly meshed with the burgeoning antiwar movement and the era of acid, free love and open rebellion against established social mores.

Even though his best days are far behind him, Dylan continues to keep active and could see his first major hit in years with a gay love song that already has the liberal critics oozing their approval. The will be a part of an EP that features different artists revamping classic marriage songs for same-sex nuptials.

Mark of the FEAST: Researchers invent edible graphene, paving the way for food that can be tracked through embedded RFID patterns

Do you think you will ever be able to eat your electronics? It’s a strange concept, but it depicts a very real future situation wherein you’ll have to decide whether or not it’s okay to partake in edible electronics.

This is because of a new development created by a team of scientists from Rice University, wherein they managed to further enhance their laser-induced graphene (LIG) technology to produce foods that come with embedded electronic parts in them.

Customs & Immigration Union Leader “Begging” For More Resources At Border, But Hussen Offers ‘Messaging’ Instead

For a long time now we have seen that the Trudeau government doesn’t take Canada’s borders seriously.

Now, the head of Canada’s Customs and Immigration Union Jean-Pierre Fortin is saying the same thing.

Parkland Shooting Hero Blasts Sheriff, Superintendent For Failing To Prevent Massacre

A student named Anthony Borges, 15, was gravely wounded after being shot five times while protecting his classmates during the Parkland shooting massacre. He just got out of the hospital and publicly criticized the Broward County Sheriff and the school superintendent stating they failed the victims by not arresting the shooter before the massacre.

Borges, who attends Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL, was a definite hero that day. He used his body to shield 20 other students after Nikolas Cruz opened fire at the school killing 17 people. He suffered wounds to his lungs, abdomen and legs. That he survived at all is a miracle.

LIAR: Trudeau Caught Spreading Falsehood About Conservative Pipeline Record, Tries Blaming Harper Again

Sometimes it seems that Justin Trudeau forgets that he is the Prime Minister. It’s as if he still thinks he heads the third party, and only has to criticize the Harper government to make it seem like he’s doing something.

That’s certainly the impression with recent comments where he tried to blame the Harper government for Canada’s pipeline struggles.

With carbon pricing up against the ropes, Catherine McKenna needs to learn humility

Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister is the latest political leader to come out swinging against federal carbon pricing.

“I have a simple message for Ottawa today – back off or we’ll see you in court,” the Progressive Conservative leader said on Friday after calling reporters to his office.

While Manitoba is introducing its own carbon tax this year, the plan is for it to stay at $25 per tonne. Whereas Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Environment Minister Catherine McKenna wish to force every province to implement a carbon tax that would hit $50 per tonne by 2022.

Canada’s back, when it’s convenient

We naively trumpet a return to peacekeeping without so much as a basic understanding of the modern meaning of the term. When we learn what’s really involved, we stall and waver, until that is no longer possible. We make a commitment to supply helicopters and personnel in a danger zone, but offer no date for deployment, fearing body bags before the next election.

We are becoming a laughing stock in diplomatic circles for the haplessness and tone-deafness of our Prime Minister on foreign soil and the failure of his entourage to insulate him from himself.

Officials prepare for anticipated spike in border crossings

More than 5,400 people have already crossed the border irregularly this year, including over 600 asylum seekers who came in through Quebec over the Easter weekend.
