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.

Perhaps Sharia isn’t the greatest threat.


‘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.

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?

Ungrateful Ontario taxpayers make me sick! Always thinking about themselves and never giving a thought to all the hard-done-by government workers, like those toiling away at the provincial booze monopoly, the LCBO.

Do you have any idea what these public servants are going through? Do you know how long it’s been since their last raise? And do you care?

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.

Our taxes are up, our country is being sold off, foreign countries are put ahead of Canadians, taxpayer money is spent on Trudeau’s own aggrandizement, and those are just a fraction of the serious problems we face because of the Trudeau government.

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

The city of Minneapolis has set up a hotline for residents to report suspected hate crimes, including “speech and actions,” according to statements on the city’s website.

The city, which will operate the “service” through its 3-1-1 helpline, is targeting any “harassing behaviors motivated by prejudice,” according to a press release. Those wishing to report a hate crime from outside the city may dial 612-673-3000.

According to the local newspaper, the Star-Tribune, “the announcement comes amid signs of a recent surge of such incidents affecting Muslims and Jews across the country, many of which go unreported.”

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

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.

Real Climate Science You Don’t Hear About

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.


Black graduates celebrated at special U of T ceremony

Organizers of a graduation ceremony for black students at Canada’s largest university say the event is meant to acknowledge the barriers that remain for people of colour pursuing academia.

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. Andrea Mitchell, who has been the chief foreign-affairs correspondent at NBC News since 1994, is emblematic of the media’s pitiful devolution into nothing more than a propaganda mill.


The Department of Justice is Privileging Mosques

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. Alarmingly, these interventions reveal a pattern of generous settlements that benefit mosques while bypassing municipal laws and disregarding legitimate neighborhood concerns.


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

By using fired FBI Director James Comey to attack the new Republican administration, Democrats have opened up a legal can of worms for the Obama administration.

And now the Senate will investigate Team Obama for obstruction of justice.


A UN survey expects the world population to boom to 8 billion by 2023

The world’s population will hit a historic milestone in 2023, surpassing the 8 billion population mark, according to the latest findings from the United Nations population survey published on Wednesday.

Father of Confederation’s name stripped from Prime Minister’s Office building

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau joined indigenous leaders across from Parliament Hill on a sun-drenched Wednesday and said the building housing his office will no longer bear the name of Hector-Louis Langevin, a father of Confederation and an architect of the residential school system.

Trudeau first announced that National Aboriginal Day will henceforth be referred to as National Indigenous Peoples Day.

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.

Florida: Brother of Saddam’s Nuke Weapons Mastermind Got 35-Year, No Bid Port Canaveral Cargo Contract

As the paper’s authors dug into the details surrounding this deal, they discovered – in addition to Gulftainer’s obvious and still potentially problematic ties to the UAE – a troubling array of connections linking it to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Clinton Foundation, and President Barack Obama, himself. For example, Obama’s former college roommates, one Indian and one Pakistani – who remain to this day his close friends – have personal and business relationships with the Jafar family.

But as is so often the case, there was less to this much-heralded display of Islamic moderation than met the eye.

Where would money come from to pay for universal child care?

Why worry? In Canada, budgets balance themselves!


Bulbous bow

A bulbous bow is a protruding bulb at the bow (or front) of a ship just below the waterline. The bulb modifies the way the water flows around the hull, reducing drag and thus increasing speed, range, fuel efficiency, and stability. Large ships with bulbous bows generally have twelve to fifteen percent better fuel efficiency than similar vessels without them.

Above: The ACX Crystal’s bulbous bow caused significant damage to the USS Fitzgerald below the waterline.

Something is fishy about USS Fitzgerald story we are getting from the media

Under no circumstances should a US Navy vessel possibly be damaged by a container ship at sea. Multiple systems exist to prevent this. Even CNN is noticing how little we know about the catastrophe that took the lives of seven sailors and almost caused a powerful warship to founder.

The USS Fitzgerald, an anti-ballistic missile destroyer that was part of the USS Ronald Reagan carrier strike group, will no longer be ready to defend the carrier and other ships from missile attacks launched from North Korea, should push come to shove in the current confrontation with the rogue regime on the threshold of the capability to attack New York, Los Angeles, and our power grid with nuclear missiles. This is an incident that could affect the outcome of a nuclear confrontation of historic moment.

“Unfortunately the right is already generalizing the blame to left-wing hate and pattern of hostility. Given the level of hatred and hostility the right has routinely expressed toward the left (or anyone who disagrees with them), this is outrageous.”

This is what psychologists call a projection, defined as the unconscious transfer of one’s own desires or emotions to another person.


What ISIS Really Wants

The Islamic State is no mere collection of psychopaths. It is a religious group with carefully considered beliefs, among them that it is a key agent of the coming apocalypse. Here’s what that means for its strategy—and for how to stop it.


Editorial: Beer tax hikes driving us all to drink

Beer taxes are up – in Alberta WAY up. And if the federal Liberals get their way, beer taxes will keep going up automatically, year after year, until some future government has the guts to put an end to the annual increases.

Halifax refugee supporters to Ottawa: Canada can be ‘a world leader’

On World Refugee Day, Halifax supporters have one main message to the government: don’t let support slip.

Halifax joined communities across Canada in hosting a refugee walk. A large group of adult and children braved the driving rain on Saturday afternoon, walking from the Garrison Grounds to the Halifax Central Library.

Dressed in ponchos with noisemakers, many carried signs saying, “No one is a refugee by choice.”

High Schools Drop “Valedictorian” Distinction Fearing Lower-Ranked Kids May Feel ‘Triggered’

We’ve spent a fair amount of time over the past several years writing about the ‘participation trophy generation’ (a.k.a. “millennials) and, more specifically, how their inflated sense of entitlement and self-worth, irrespective of work effort and/or innate talent, would not serve them well in the real world.

You see millennials, despite what your enabling handlers (a.k.a. “educators”) have told you your whole life, people here in the real world couldn’t care any less about your feelings, think your ‘Gender Studies’ degree was a complete waste of your parents’ money, will not promote you just because anything less would be a ‘triggering’ event and do not recognize your standing to demand ‘safe spaces’.

“I want the unveiling to be a catharsis for us,” he says. “Not another reason to express anger.”


Banning trans women from women-only facilities punishes them for the sins of others

The case of Body Blitz Spa in Toronto reportedly denying access to a trans woman is a good reminder that laws don’t necessarily shift public opinion. And the lingering, fallacious opinion among many seems to be that trans women, somehow, pose a threat to other women.

By demanding the use of women’s bathrooms, “trans women” are creating a loophole that can be exploited by pedophiles, rapists, and other criminals at a location where other males are not available to provide protection. The trans community claims to deserve empathy and respect but will not reciprocate either to the women and children who are now exposed to danger in what used to be a private area.

This List Of Attacks Against Conservatives Is Mind Blowing

A wave of liberal rage has marked the last 11 months since the rise and subsequent election of President Donald Trump.

Antifa protestors clad in black masks shut down college campuses, destroy property and indiscriminately attack those they disagree with, whether women or the elderly. Meanwhile, CNN fires Kathy Griffin for taking photos with a bloody replica of the president’s decapitated head.

Amid this backdrop, The Huffington Post publishes an article calling for the execution of Trump and “everyone assisting his agenda.”


Moderates and Radicals in Islam and the Left

Newspapers in Peril?…Canadians Unworried

For the last few years, there have been clear signals that Canada’s newspaper industry is struggling and some newspapers may end up in bankruptcy. In our most recent survey, we asked a few questions to get a sense of how people are feeling about this.


Rules for Radicals

1. “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.” Power is derived from 2 main sources – money and people. “Have-Nots” must build power from flesh and blood.
2. “Never go outside the expertise of your people.” It results in confusion, fear and retreat. Feeling secure adds to the backbone of anyone.
3. “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy.” Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty.
4. “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules.
5. “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.
6. “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.” They’ll keep doing it without urging and come back to do more. They’re doing their thing, and will even suggest better ones.
7. “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.” Don’t become old news.
8. “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.” Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new.
9. “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.” Imagination and ego can dream up many more consequences than any activist.
10.”The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.” It is this unceasing pressure that results in the reactions from the opposition that are essential for the success of the campaign.
11. “If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.” Violence from the other side can win the public to your side because the public sympathizes with the underdog.
12. “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.” Never let the enemy score points because you’re caught without a solution to the problem.
13. “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.

Australian government unveils gun amnesty amid terror warnings

The justice minister Michael Keenan will on Friday confirm details of the amnesty, which is due to begin on 1 July.

“The fact [is] we’ve got a deteriorating national security environment,” Mr Keenan told ABC radio.

President Trump Should Bypass Courts on the Travel Ban

There are legitimate debates about the limits of presidential authority in every administration. It’s fair to question whether any president, of any party, should be able to engage in military action without Congress because the Constitution grants the legislative branch the authority to declare war.

But there can be no doubt whatsoever that President Trump is acting within his legal authority under the Immigration and Nationality Act which grants him the authority to “suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants” for as long as he thinks it’s necessary. Obama made use of this power to temporarily halt Iraqi migration. So have other presidents in the past.
