Russia ‘may be helping supply Taliban’, says US general, as militants capture strategic district of Sangin

The top US general in Europe warned on Thursday that Russia may now be arming the Taliban, as the militant group seized the Afghan town that more than 100 British soldiers died trying to defend.

The strategic district of Sangin in Helmand province was the deadliest battlefield for UK forces in Afghanistan and 104 British troops died in the effort to keep it out of the Taliban’s hands.

But the town fell early on Thursday morning as Taliban forces continued a years-long offensive to extend their reach in southern Afghanistan.

Meet Five Lethal American Converts to Islam

John Georgelas, the Texas-born son of a U.S. Air Force doctor and grandson of a World War II veteran, now calls himself Yahya Abu Hassan. He has reportedly just become one of the top leaders of the Islamic State (ISIS).

Georgelas is not by any means the only convert to Islam to have gotten the idea that his new religion, though touted as peaceful by almost all American authorities, actually commands him to commit treason and mass murder.

Donald Trump Jr ridicules mayor of London hours after Westminster attack

President Donald Trump’s son has ridiculed the mayor of London, hours after Wednesday’s suspected terrorist attack. Donald Trump Jr retweeted a September interview with Sadiq Khan, in which he said that readiness for a terrorist attack was “part and parcel of living in a great global city”.

Mr Trump Jr tweeted a link to the article, commenting in disgust: “You have to be kidding me?! Terror attacks are part of living in the big city, says London Mayor Sadiq Khan.”

Time for the US Army to invade Canada

With the passing of David Rockefeller and Trump’s pro-USA policies, we’re seeing a number of interests in alignment that point back to one thing: a Pre-Industrial isolationist America, as we saw during the 20th century, as opposed to a New World Order leader creating superstates and intervening in costly foreign wars. Iraq, Ukraine, Syria, Afghanistan – it all boils down to modern colonialism, a post-industrial colonialism; as we explain in our book Splitting Pennies.

Pulling back our troops from the middle east, closing the majority of military bases in the world like those in Germany and hundreds of other places, will leave our soldiers with little to do – putting them on the streets to fight gangs is not practical (especially with the high instances of gang members enlisted in the US Army already). Logically, there’s one best solution – ‘as a practical matter’ that means the ‘best bang for the buck’ – INVADE CANADA.

US forbids any device larger than cellphone on airlines from 13 countries after Muslim terror threat

Monday afternoon, a US official had briefed Reuters that the ban followed a “terrorism threat” and was expected to be announced on Tuesday.

Saudi Arabia’s Saudia Airlines and Royal Jordanian airlines are among the affected countries; the full list has not been revealed to the affected airlines themselves.

Student Leader Who Tweeted ‘Jews Will Get What Coming to Them’ Rails Against Exposure as ‘Islamophobic Smear Campaign’

A Minnesota university student leader who tweeted “yahood [Jews] will get what coming for them [sic]” railed on Facebook against exposure of his social media posts as an “Islamophobic smear campaign.”

Mayzer Muhammad — president of the undergraduate student union (USG) at the University of St. Thomas — wrote last Wednesday: “I am coming under attack for being a Muslim leader of the student government at a private Catholic institution,” after his online activity, revealed by campus watchdog Canary Mission, was reported by The Algemeiner two days earlier.

Muhammad called his posts — which included calling Zionists “the scum of the earth” — “poorly chosen…words” written “during a period of time where I was very emotional about Israel’s politics and the loss of life in Gaza.”

Does Germany Owe The US ‘Vast Sums’?

…I’m not privy to what Trump told Merkel in private, but it’s hard to imagine the president didn’t put the iron laws of political economics to her in the bluntest possible way. Merkel has had the freedom to import and support a million cultural hostiles a year with no meaningful work skills in large part because Germany pays so little for defense, and can afford to amuse itself with virtue-signalling while its citizens are robbed, raped, and murdered — although even that largesse is coming to an end…
