Measles outbreak in Somali community; Muslim parents refuse to vaccinate children

This article at Mic Daily makes it sound like it is all about a fear that vaccines cause autism in vaccinated children.  However not mentioned is the Islamic prohibition on the use of vaccines.

Minneapolis Doctor Madlon-Kay

Here is the story at Mic Network Inc.  Golly gee, why can’t we get our message heard, say health officials.

Minnesota’s Hennepin County is in the midst of the state’s largest measles outbreak since 2011. Nine cases have been reported since last week, and officials expect the number to rise.

So far, all of the cases are among unvaccinated children. They have something else in common too: The affected children are all part of Minneapolis and St. Paul’s Somali-American community. According to a health department official, Minnesota’s Somali immigrant community has been a particular target of the anti-vaccination movement, colloquially known as “anti-vaxxers.”

“They’re very much engaged with and targeting this community,” Kris Ehresmann, infectious disease division director at the Minnesota Health Department, said in a phone call Wednesday.

According to Ehresmann, anti-vaccine groups began to target the Somali community around 2008, amid concerns about autism among Somali-American children. Anti-vaccine groups started reaching out to the Somali community and showing up at community health meetings, she said, disseminating misinformation linking autism to the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine, or MMR.

Since then, the population has seen a “steady decline in MMR vaccine rates.”

[….]

She [Dr. Diane Madlon-Kay, a practicing physician who has studied the low vaccine rates among Minnesota’s Somali community] and other doctors who serve that population have had little luck dispelling myths about autism and vaccines that travel quickly though the community via word-of-mouth, she said.

“We don’t seem to be making any headway with that at all,” Madlon-Kay said.

Despite countless studies indicating there’s no connection between vaccines and autism, Madlon-Kay doesn’t have much hope that science will change the minds of scared parents within the Somali community anytime soon.

What about Islam?

Not a word in the story about Islam and vaccines which is likely the bigger reason why health officials can’t educate the Somalis.  In only a few minutes search, here is one of many articles about “religious” prohibitions in Islam.

Islam and Medical Science Must Oppose Vaccination

The case against vaccination is first an Islamic one, based on Islamic ethos regarding the perfection of the natural human body’s immune defence system, empowered by great and prophetic guidance to avoid most infections. The case against vaccination is also a medical and health-related one. Incredible evidence, unbeknownst to most, has emerged in the West regarding the many serious health hazards that affect those who have been vaccinated.

For inquisitive minds, we have hundreds of articles about refugees and health issues (including mental health issues) in our ‘Health Issues’ category, here.  Measles is not the worst illness you will find there.

HIJRAH: Radical Islam’s Global Invasion

THE STORY

hijrah cover dvdHIJRAH – RADICAL (FUNDAMENTAL) ISLAM’S GLOBAL INVASION

Scenes of chaos are unfolding across the globe as millions of Muslim ‘refugees’ make their way out of the Middle East and into the west. Western governments are unprepared for the onslaught of Muslim migrants and world leaders appear completely ignorant of what the underlying mass movement is about. If we’re to believe the words of corporate media, and of course we shouldn’t, it’s all about human rights with virtually no potential for deadly consequences. But is that really what this is all about?

Refugees?

Is it all a harmless movement of people fleeing their homeland for hope of a better future in the west? Are the millions of Muslims migrating into the nations of the West willing to integrate into our culture and way of life?The following story should shake you to your core being. Because I’m about to show you truth the media is unwilling to share. I’m about to show you how this mass movement of Muslims is carefully and strategically designed to provide cover for something sinister. I’m Paul Nehlen and this is the story of modern day radical Islamic Hijrah.

Hijrah immerses viewers deep into the dark underworld of the Muslim refugee crisis. The story provides an extensive background into the origins of Hijrah, the true purpose of the refugee invasion happening across the globe and the shocking reality of how our very own government is fueling its rise.

How do you get your news?

If you had any doubt the news system was rigged, this might remove that doubt:

ABC News executive producer Ian Cameron is married to Susan Rice, former National Security Adviser.

CBS President David Rhodes is the brother of Ben Rhodes, Obama’s former Deputy National Security Adviser for Strategic Communications.

ABC News correspondent Claire Shipman is married to former White House Press Secretary Jay Carney.

ABC News and Univision reporter Matthew Jaffe is married to Katie Hogan, Obama’s former Deputy Press Secretary.

ABC President Ben Sherwood is the brother of Obama’s former Special Adviser Elizabeth Sherwood.

CNN President Virginia Moseley is married to Clinton’s former Deputy Secretary Tom Nides.

And if that didn’t throw the final turd into the punch-bowl, the ultra-liberal New York Times is owned by Carlos Slim, the richest citizen of MEXICO! What a great big happy family!

Before you believe everything you read in the newspapers or see on TV — think about what these billionaire “insiders” have at stake when they lose their crooked “providers” in government.

French Presidential Campaign: Partie 3

The outstretched hand

The hagadah that is read during the pesach [Passover] seder is an intensely concentrated treatise on the subject of freedom. Something similar is happening in France today. The issues are dramatized by reality, realities that were deliberately kept out of sight have suddenly burst into the discourse and cannot be ignored. An intense concentrate of the issues that have been playing out since the end of September 2000* will reach a conclusion on the night of 23-24 April 2017 when the votes are counted and we will know what French citizens have decided to do about jihad conquest. The future of Europe, of the free world hangs in the balance. [* see my latest release, Troubled Dawn of the 21st Century]

Back then, deaf to the alarms of anti-Jewish violence triggered by the al Dura blood libel, French society stumbled from willful blindness to cozy antizionism until the rude awakening of the Charlie Hebdo executions, followed by the November 13th, 2015 mass jihad murders. Again, today, the murder of a 67 year-old Jewish woman thrown out the window like a piece of garbage by her Muslim neighbor did not move the media or intrude on a presidential campaign that keeps veering away from the crucial issue of survival.

And now, 18 April, a thunderbolt strikes: Mahiedine Merabet and Clément Baur are arrested in Marseille, suspected of preparing an imminent jihad attack on “the campaign.” They had the full kit: ski masks, Koranic verses, a go-pro camera, explosives, nuts and bolts, loaded assault weapons, and a hunting knife for good measure. British intelligence detected their allegiance to Daesh video and informed French authorities. François Fillon is the designated target, “talion law” is spelled out in bullets, and photos of Muslim children killed in bombings are displayed as justification. Mujahidin do not attack civilians…except in retaliation for crimes committed against Muslims.

Four days before the close of the campaign, Islamic totalitarianism pounces on us like a man-eating tiger on a forest path. Doesn’t that change everything? The danger to our democracy is not the employment of family members as parliamentary assistants! Two men of French nationality, one born into Islam, the other a convert, two lowlifes of no particular dimension, two flagged security risks like thousands of others, could have assassinated one of the four leading candidates and an untold number of supporters. Two common ordinary men loyal to the caliphate could have derailed the democratic process. A little monkey wrench thrown into the mechanism brings it to a halt.

The suspects had been under surveillance since December when a search of Mahediene’s apartment near Roubaix (permitted under the state of emergency statutes) had unearthed a Daesh flag, jihad propaganda, and a young man who gave a false name and turns out to be 23 year-old Clément Baur, reportedly converted to Islam by Chechens living in Nice, known to have contacts with jihad cells in Belgium. Mahediene, theoretically placed under house arrest, was already on the run. On the 1st of April the plotters went south, sublet a bed sitter in Marseille, and cooked up a storm of TATP.

It seems obvious to me that the nipped in the bud attack will change the outcome this Sunday. Most French journalists and commentators apparently disagree. We shall see.

Murder in Belleville

Further information has emerged about the anti-Semitic murder of Sarah Lucie Halimi since I gave the horrible news in an update to French Presidential Campaign Part 2. Kada Traoré, the 27 year-old African Muslim neighbor that broke into her apartment, beat her, and pushed her out the 3rd floor (= 4th) window, had been harassing the victim and her daughter for years, calling them dirty Jews. They were afraid of him. Traoré lived with his parents on the 2nd floor. The building is managed by Paris Habitat, a municipal housing administration. Did madame Halimi complain about the aggressive neighbor? If she had, would anything have been done about it? We are reminded of the savage jihad murder of Sébastien Selam in November 2003- ambushed, slaughtered and mutilated by his Muslim neighbor Adel Amaistibou, The murderer has never been punished for his crime. He spent a few years in a mental institution, often released on furloughs during which he stayed with his family that was still living in the same building as the victim’s mother, Juliette Selam, because they had turned down all offers from municipal housing authorities.

As many as 1200 people participated in a commemorative march in Belleville for Sarah Halimi. According to reports in Jewish media, Sarah Halimi was an M.D. and director of the daycare center at the Lubavitcher school on rue Pavée in the Marais. MP Meyer Habib says he personally informed François Fillon and members of his campaign organization; they had heard nothing about the murder. It didn’t strike the collective conscience. I don’t know if other candidates were aware of the incident. A few days later a 52 year-old American woman was stabbed to death as she was taking pictures of a famous graffiti wall in Montreuil. We know nothing more about her identity. The killer has been described as a homeless man.

Emmanuel Macron is an enthusiast for urban engineering. He says residents of the banlieue- a majority are Muslims from north or sub-Saharan Africa- should not be assigné à residence [under house arrest]. He means they shouldn’t be confined to ethnic neighborhoods. In fact, Jewish refugees from the Maghreb lived in relative peace with Muslim Maghrebis in those banlieues until recent decades when violent Jew hatred spread in Muslim circles. Jews who could afford to move deserted those neighborhoods en masse. And so did non-Muslim French people fleeing crime, drug dealers, caïds, vandals, Salafists, and halal butcher shops. The Front National spoke up for those refugees when other political parties were carefully ignoring the problem or blaming the victims.

Marine Présidente

This explains why so many foreign commentators think that Marine Le Pen is the only candidate that fights Islamization. The latest example is a long article in PJ Media by my friendly colleague Bruce Bawer. But I could also mention Geert Wilders. And dozens of friends and readers that write to ask me if the winning ticket is going to be Marine Le Pen and Frexit. I say they ask me but in fact they usually tell me. And I reply, and repeat, and explain, and reiterate: Marine Le Pen does not have a party fit to govern, she is unreliable, politically unstable, and currently losing ground. There is nothing she could do about Islamic jihad that François Fillon could not do better. Bruce thinks the gay-friendly FN is the sole rampart against Muslim homophobia that will turn France into a country where homosexuals are thrown from the tops of tall buildings, unless Marine prevails.

She will not and should not prevail. (I say that, but who knows?) There is a difference between shouting, snarling, and wielding political power. In a desperate attempt at sanitization, Marine dropped the Front National label and ran her campaign as “Marine Présidente.” She has nothing to govern with but the FN and there is no way the FN could win a majority in the legislative elections this June. What would become of her paper thin program with a hostile legislature? It’s easy, when you don’t live in France, to lock onto the same high points that elicit boisterous praise from her supporters at rallies: control the borders, reduce immigration to a trickle, impose law and order, get rid of criminals and caïds, deport binational security risks and jihad- preaching imams, ban niqabs and burkinis, impose respect for women… It gets a bit tricky when you add the ban on kippas in public and kosher slaughter along with halal. But it literally falls apart when you include her economic and international platform. Globalization is equivalent to Islamization in Marine Le Pen’s theology, and free market capitalism is no less a threat to France than Wahhabism. Further, all the strict measures she promises to impose depend on French exit from the EU and the Eurozone. It’s not going to happen.

You want her running our international relations? You think she’s the French Trump? Do you know what she thinks about the impertinent airstrikes on a Syrian airbase just because of a little chemical attack on civilians? She says it’s outrageous! We don’t want foreign powers to interfere in France, we shouldn’t be meddling in Syria or elsewhere. It’s none of our business. It was just a few weeks ago that Marine Le Pen declared, on a high profile visit to Lebanon: “Assad is the solution.”

Aymeric Chauprade, FN eurodeputy and former foreign relations advisor to Marine, left the party and turned his back on the candidate. He says the FN is not a democratic party, it’s a dictatorial sect. He claims 40% of the people elected to municipal or departmental Councils on the FN ticket have withdrawn. They thought they were joining an anti-system party, they found themselves in a “clan of incompetent, cynical predators.”

N.B.: François Fillon thinks his opponent in the 2nd round will be… Emmanuel Macron. That’s been my hunch for some time now. Fillon counts on the rationality of French voters in the intimacy of the election booth. It’s not the same, he says, as replying to pollsters. Currently, 4 candidates are in reach of the 2nd round, the margins are too close to call. That doesn’t keep pollsters from sending Le Pen and Macron to the second round and relegating Fillon to 3rd or 4th position.

Lider Maximo

My sources tell me that Japan’s Asahi Shinbun, too, is impressed by Marine Le Pen’s enthusiastic supporters at full-house rallies. The LR [Les Républicains] message is: Vote for Marine Le Pen and you’ll get Macron. Or Mélenchon! The meteoric rise of the Lider Maximo continued last week, leading some enlightened spirits to take a closer look at his program. Economist Nicolas Bouzou studied the whole voluminous document and concludes that Mélenchon’s model of government is based on dismal failures-Peronista Argentina and Chavezien Venezuela. Is it true that the chuckling dictator would pull France out of infamous international unions like the EU and NATO, and deliver us into the Bolivarian Union with Bolivia, Cuba, Venezuela, and a few Caribbean islands under the watchful eye of Russia and Iran? Now he says it’s not true. Champion of open-air rallies, Mélenchon consistently announces a round figure of 70,000, whether it’s Paris, Toulouse, or Marseille. As if he were already the dictator, no one questions his figures. People are impressed by the crowds, the fervor, the buzz, and the ever-increasing voter intentions. What impresses me is the contrast between the horrors he would impose if elected and the image he projects of a kindly fellow who will protect folks against those nasty bloodsucking capitalists. He has upstaged the Socialist candidate Benoît Hamon whose universal income looks like chicken feed compared to the billions Mélenchon tosses to the crowd at every rally.

11 – candidate debate

5 April: The debate organized by BFM TV, featuring all 11 candidates, was a grueling 4-hour ordeal. Roughly speaking, I think 7 of the 11 were anti-capitalists. They believe that free market capitalism spoils the countryside, ruins the farmers, crushes workers, pollutes the atmosphere, melts the ice cap, causes war and terrorism. Poutou (NPA New Anti-capitalist Party) and Arthaud (Lutte Ouvrière), arrogant hardline Communist Workers, have no compunctions about grabbing from the rich, giving to the poor, and fettering the bosses. They shouldn’t be allowed to distribute dividends, close factories, or lay off workers. As you move from those firebrands to Mélenchon and Le Pen, the rhetoric gets a bit smoother, the program more subtle, but the underlying principles are strikingly similar. Then there’s Asselineau, the instant Frexiter that makes Marine Le Pen look timid with her multi-stage plan to wrestle concessions from the EU and if that doesn’t work to let the people decide by referendum. Marine (that’s how everyone calls her) doesn’t bother about tying up loose ends. If the polls show her surefire for the second round, why not? If the polls say 72% are in favor of the euro and the EU, never mind. She’s running in the name of the people and the people will want what she wants.

The Big Tent Debate gave the “little candidates” a fair hearing.  In fact it was reassuring. We’re not missing anything. The little candidates are polling anywhere from 0.5 to 4.5% because they are niche products stuck on one or two issues, devoid of charm and stature. The Workers dressed way down, slouched, hissed and bitched, slathering the other candidates with insults. They flaunted their indifference to everything but their Cause. If they really spoke for the workers, I guess they’d be getting their votes!

Emmanuel Macron was strangely vacant during the debate, except for prickling when attacked. This is not unusual; When Macron is not the center of attention, the light goes out of his face, his eyes dim and his features freeze. I wonder why he drinks so much water during debates and rallies. Speakers do sometimes need to wet their whistles, but Emmanuel Macron’s thirst is noticeable.

Of course the journalists threw in a section on ethics. Just in case no one thought of attacking Fillon, the mise en examen, the scandal, and all that. Poutou the Worker dug his claws into both Le Pen and Fillon “stealing from the government cookie jar.”  Nathalie Arthaud whined: “and when a supermarket cashier helps herself to a chocolate bar, she’s fired!” And of course the candidates promised, one after the other, to prohibit hiring family members as assistants. Duhhh! Fillon lobbed a ball into François Hollande’s court with a list of the qualities that make an exemplary president, including telling the truth to voters, leaving the country in better shape than he found it, and not misusing public institutions to destroy rivals.

But his most important statement was: “we are at war.”

No other candidate said it and most of them implicitly contradicted it with the usual claptrap about not stigmatizing Muslims, not invading other people’s countries, pulling out of NATO, bringing prosperity and democracy to Africa.

No one knows where the vote will go. But I stand by my wish for a Fillon-Macron final round, a real confrontation of Right and Left. Right and Left are not immutable categories, but they make sense. And voters could sidestep the fantasy weavers and make a choice between two distinct world views. Today, Right is “we are at war” and Left is “we have to understand them, help them, make everyone feel good.”

Fillon, they say, is too harsh. He is asking the French to make sacrifices and efforts, to tighten their belts, to work longer hours and accept stingier public service. How dare he, when he himself has erred? He wants stringent punishment for bicycle thieves and immunity for himself and his family. Does anyone wonder why hundreds of thousands of highly skilled French expats willingly accept the conditions of a UK job market transformed by Margaret Thatcher?

Emmanuel Macron hit a bump last week but of course it never reached scandal proportions. It was revealed that Mohamed Saou, his liaison with the Val d’Oise, was too close for comfort with some questionable elements (e.g. the CCIF [collective against Islamophobia] and the Indigènes de la République) at war with the nation and/or allied with the Muslim Brotherhood. Then it all got fuzzy. Saou was not validated. But he was still the liaison guy. Saou promised Macron would not get the thousands of (Muslim) votes in the Val d’Oise if he was excluded. Finally, Macron admitted during a pause in a Beur FM broadcast (he didn’t know there was an open mike on the table) that he thinks Sau is a great guy doing a wonderful job… just a bit radical on occasions, but still a great guy to work with. By the way, Clément Baur comes from the Val d’Oise. Just a coincidence.

News snippets

Michel Sapin, Finance Minister in the outgoing government, has been ordered to reimburse the sum of €100,000 wrongfully allotted to him in the context of a self-claimed municipal promotional project that did not follow the rules. A simple error, no big deal, right?

Valeurs Actuelles reported last week that the man who dumped a bag of flour on François Fillon’s head at a rally in Strasbourg was flagged as a security risk from 2012-15. An anonymous police source told VA “It could have been worse…he might have had a kalachnikov.”

Truth is a Racist ‘Myth’ steeped in ‘White Supremacy’

Are you worried about some in America who are unhinged? Well, your fears are not unfounded.

In a column titled College Students Claim Objective ‘Truth’ is a Racist ‘Myth’  reports:

It’s finally happened: the Social Justice Left has openly called objective “truth” a racist “myth” steeped in “white supremacy.”

[ … ]

After outgoing Pomona College President David Oxtoby sent a school-wide email rebuking the actions of violent protesters attempting to shut down conservative journalist Heather Mac Donald’s speech, three self-identified “Black students” triggered by the pro-First Amendment stance penned a letter to Oxtoby, condemning his words, and, yes, openly labeling “truth” a racist “myth.”

[ … ]

As the letter continues, the students explain that free speech has been “appropriated by hegemonic institutions” and should ultimately be curtailed because “it has given those who seek to perpetuate systems of domination a platform to project their bigotry.”

[ … ]

Then comes the galling truth-is-a-racist-myth rant (emphasis added):

Historically, white supremacy has venerated the idea of objectivity, and wielded a dichotomy of ‘subjectivity vs. objectivity’ as a means of silencing oppressed peoples. The idea that there is a single truth–’the Truth’–is a construct of the Euro-West that is deeply rooted in the Enlightenment, which was a movement that also described Black and Brown people as both subhuman and impervious to pain. This construction is a myth and white supremacy, imperialism, colonization, capitalism, and the United States of America are all of its progeny. The idea that the truth is an entity for which we must search, in matters that endanger our abilities to exist in open spaces, is an attempt to silence oppressed peoples.

village-magazine-why-not-coverAdd to this MSNBC “counter-terror expert” Malcolm Nance Tweet calling for a ISIS suicide bombing of the Trump Tower in Istanbul.

Remember the cover of Village Magazine showing President Trump with a bulls eye on his temple with the article titled “Why Not” calling for “Tyrannicide”, the assassination of the leader of the free world. The Village Magazine article reads:

“So what is to be done? We have one of the worst men in the most powerful position, one where he can do damage to millions, to billions, to the planet.

“So perhaps the solution is tyrannicide. As he might say himself — ‘take him out.’

“Tyrannicide has had support from various philosophers and theologians through the centuries, including the ancient Greeks and Romans.”

The article concludes, however, that killing Trump would be wrong.

The Daily Signal’s Rob Shimshock reports:

The professor who tweeted “Trump must hang” and that two Republicans should be executed for each immigrant deported is taking a paid leave of absence for the rest of the spring semester.

Professor Lars Maischak of California State University, Fresno [where a black Muslim shot three white men] agreed upon the leave of absence with the university, according to The Fresno Bee.

Screen shot from Antifa website.

Antifa, the Marxist anarchists who recently attacked a pro-Trump march in Berkeley, California, are now arming themselves because some of the marchers beat-down Antifa members, sending them scattering.

Gateway Pundit is reporting that Antifa is selling concealed knives on its website for “slicing conservatives.”

Following the recent violent mobilization of Antifa in Berkeley, the domestic terror organization has begun to embrace violence as part of its message.

There is a visible evil to the entity and sadly it is comprised of young Americans who have adopted a violent, Marxist mentality.

They are now selling small, concealed knives and are actively promoting violence in an effort to fight perceived “fascism”.

Your fears are justified. These people are completely  unhinged.

Malcolm Nance

The far-Left Islamic apologist Malcolm Nance is the quintessential establishment counter-terror “expert.” (I had to laugh when I saw his self-description: he says he is a “former Arabic speaking naval intelligence counter-terrorism and intelligence officer specializing in the Middle East.” “Former Arabic speaking,” eh? How did he forget all his Arabic?) His book on the Islamic State is a prime example of fake news: poorly researched, poorly written, apologetic and whitewashed regarding the Islamic State’s motivating ideology. And so it is no surprise that he would turn out to be, like so many Leftists these days, actually in favor of Islamic State action when it is directed against those whom he hates and fears.

Nance and others readily traffic in the demonization and smearing of those who are pointing out how jihadis use the texts and teachings of Islam to justify violence and hatred; apparently Nance and his colleagues are just fine with the fact that if all those who speak out about the root causes of jihad terror are marginalized and silenced, the jihad will be able to advance unimpeded and unopposed. The Left in America today is increasingly violent, authoritarian, and intolerant of dissent.

All that said, it should also be noted that Trump’s congratulating Erdogan for becoming a dictator was absolute madness and testimony to the chaos that reigns inside the Trump administration, but unlike Malcolm Nance, my knowing that doesn’t move me to call for any Islamic State massacres.

Russia and Failed American Intelligence: The North Korea, Syria, Putin, Obama Connection

The tension rises overseas, Syria and North Korea dominate the world media with a wide variety of discussions, stories, and predictions in April 2017. Yet, nobody connects these two countries ideologically. Alas, as usual, the media has forgotten the Stalinist era of building Socialism. As a matter of fact, Stalin’s long-range strategy included building Socialism world-wide and creating a One World Government under the Kremlin rule. Stalin planned to be a President of the World, his actions proved and confirmed his intent. Do you remember the First Communist International and the second one? Both were established in the 20th Century. As General Secretary of the Communist Party of the USSR, Stalin was its leader.

Don’t be confused by the fraudulent term Communism/Socialism. Carefully crafted Stalinist political correctness has been working since the Socialist Revolution of 1917 in Russia to manipulate human mind. Pay attention to the history and the facts of life. The expansion of Soviet Socialism has started immediately after the revolution: Mongolia, China, North Korea, and so on. Both North Korea and Syria are Stalinist states built on Stalin’s Doctrine of One World Government under Kremlin’s rule, to dominate the world…

north_korea_flagStalinist North Korea

Let me give you a part of a lecture I presented at New York University in 1990. We were discussing the book Red Cocaine: The Drugging of America, by Joseph D. Douglass, Jr. Clarion House, 1990. The book was stunning me. The author knew well the machinery of the Soviet government and its modus operandi. He used the murky time in Russia after the fall of the Berlin Wall and temporary openness in Russia; he visited the KGB archives, copying precious documents.  The book is a pearl of a documentary and should be read by all decent people in the world. That exact reading I recommended to my students. Here is a part of the lecture presented in 1990.

“Reading the book, you’ll learn about the so-called ‘medical facilities’ in North Korea. For that reason I want to bring you to another part of the world and take the subject of the KGB even further back in time. Let me give you some examples. In 1945, World War II had ended, but not for Stalin. He had in mind his Second Front—Asia. He viewed it as a strategic region of paramount importance.

“At that time, defeated Japan had left a political vacuum in North Korea, and Stalin used it. A Korean Army was formed, trained, equipped to the teeth with the Soviet arms, and supervised by KGB men sent to implement the Stalinist formula in North Korea. Stalin personally chose its leader—a captain of the Soviet Army, Kim IL Sung. Since then, the connection between the Soviet military, the KGB and the Korean military has never ended—the Soviet General Staff had worked out the plan for aggression in 1950 and the Soviets military fully participated in the Korean War.

“After the communist victory of 1949 in China, under the slogan ‘Stalin and Mao—friendship forever,’ tens of thousands of Soviet advisors flooded China. These were Stalin’s apparatchiks and bureaucrats. All of them taught the Chinese how to build and instill the party machine and an infrastructure of the Soviet system, with its institutions. Under the same slogan, hundreds of thousands of young Chinese flooded the Soviet universities. I met some of them in law school. By that time, they spoke Russian fluently. While studying, most of those students had been recruited by the KGB, and upon return to China they deepened implementation of the Stalinist model. Cultural similarities have been conducive to success.” Baltic Winds: Testimony of a Soviet Attorney, pp. 529-555, Xlibris, 2002.

Seventy years later, you saw a massive military parade, Soviet style, a quite provocative celebration of the Kim IL Sung birth day on April 15, 2017. The grandson Kim Jong-un presented his grandfather as “the Sun or a Son of God,” but the real history tells us that Kim IL Sung was a ‘Son of Stalinism.’ Look at twenty-five million Koreans living under the regime today—it is a Stalinist GULAG, enslaving human beings. And it is not a coincidence that the Korean missile test failed, but don’t take comfort in that. The military machine of North Korea is working non-stop like the Soviet one and the master-puppet Putin is there with full military capacity to undermine global tranquility. Rising tensions in Asia are a result of Russia’s intent to test Trump’s administration. Flying over Alaska is the same testing Trump’s administration on the Pacific…

Unfortunately, the Stalinist Doctrine of destruction did not die with Stalin: his devoted disciples in Russia have continued its expansion across the world. The Middle East and especially Syria present a vivid example of how Soviet Socialism has been disseminated with the Influence of Russian Intelligence. It is this force that provided all its satellites with WMD: Saddam got Sarin and Mustard Gas, Assad-Sarin. Watch WMD within ISIS and al-Qaeda… Though China definitely has power over North Korea, the Russian security apparatus still has long arms with the intent to dominate the world. Syria is another example.

obama-syriaSyria

If Arafat was the first molding of a Soviet style leader in the Middle East, Hafez al-Assad was indeed the second one. He participated in the 1963 Syrian coup d’état which brought the Syrian Regional Branch of the Arab Socialist Ba’ath Party to power, and was appointed Commander of the Syrian Air Force by the new leadership. In 1966, Assad participated in a second coup, and was appointed defense minister by the new government. In 1970 Assad seized power and then appointed himself the undisputed leader of Syria in 1970–71. He was Prime Minister from 1970 to 1971 and President of Syria from 1971 to 2000. This amounted to thirty years of total Soviet influence in Syria under Papa Assad.

That was the usual Soviet strategy of infiltrating the Middle East. Under Bashar Assad, Syria has once again become a Soviet Arab Socialist Republic with all the consequences of Stalin’s Doctrine and his Formula for Power. By the way, Saddam Hussein came to power in Iraq the same way in 1979 as did the Ayatollahs in Iran in 1979. Don’t be surprised at the connection between ISIS and al-Qaeda—all terrorists groups regardless of their names have the same parents—Soviet Fascism.

As a matter of fact, Syria, which is comprised of several major incompatible tribes is a strategic center of the Mideast. It was a typical Soviet Socialist State, equipped with a huge arsenal of the Soviet arms and weaponry since 1971. The city of Tartus hosts a Soviet-era naval supply and maintenance facility, under a 1971 agreement with Baathist Syria, Tartus is practically a Russian military base in Syria. The close relation between the Russian intelligence and military with Syria has been going on since. “The facility hosts the Amur (Russian) class of floating workshop PM-138, capable of providing technical maintenance to Russian warships deployed in the Mediterranean in the 21st century.”

Hence Russia has a free access to Mediterranean, which means the Middle East, North Africa and Southern Europe. You can see on a map of the area that there is also a corridor from Iran and Iraq to Lebanon, a route for shipping arms to Hamas and Hezbollah. Remember Stalin’s Doctrine worked at the time and it worked well in the Middle East as well. Moreover, Putin needed Crimea for this particular reason: to have a free avenue for Russian fleet to Mediterranean and the Middle East. Stalin’s design to use Islam is alive and well, you are witnessing it every day by the criminal activities of terrorism. Today Russians have several military installations in Syria. Read Socialist Lies: From Stalin to Clintons, Obamas, and Sanders, Xlibris, 2016.

However strange it sounds, I had some experience in connection with Syria. Once, a client came to my law office, a man who had a question about his apartment in Tallinn. In talking to me he told that he was leaving in a week, as he was working in Syria. I asked him what he was doing there, he answered very calmly that he was an instructor in the Soviet Terrorist training camp in Syria. It was in the end of the 1960s or beginning of the 1970s. I wasn’t surprised; the people living in Socialist countries had known Russia’s agenda in the Middle East where constant attacks were taking place daily. Today, in 2017, you can see the long-range strategy of Soviet Socialism and the Stalinist’s addiction to expansion—one of the reasons, I called the regime Soviet Fascism.

The ideology of Soviet Fascism

The Stalinist ideology has created special kinds of people, affecting them with subversive political correctness. They ignore the reality of the world and the war waged by Soviet Fascism against Western civilization during the last hundred years. But reality is very suborn—Stalinism connects Putin, Assad, Kim Jong-un, and many others like an umbilical cord to the ideology. Those leaders know that they are criminals and that the power they amass is the only thing that will save them from prison. The unfortunate result of their existence across the world is obvious—the rise of Anti-Semitism, the genocide of Christians, unspeakable violence, orchestrated protests—the attributes of Soviet Fascism. All of those we, the former Soviet citizens, had experienced in the Soviet Union. We called it Stalinism.

Researching the ideology for the last twenty-five years, I am convinced that the globe is dealing today with Soviet Fascism, which is one of the reasons for the push to Globalization, a KGB invention. Nor has America escaped it. For the sake of our country, the term Soviet Fascism should be accepted, analyzed, and discussed. Therefore my conclusion is two-fold: 1. Knowledge of Stalinist Russia is a must. 2. Investigation the Obama administration and the current activities of his shadow government is imperative. Both investigations, if successful, will have vital global ramifications…

I have to remind you my opinion about a list of military collaborations between the U.S. and Russia executed under the Obama/Putin joint venture:

  1. Killing of bin-Laden
  2. Invasion of Libya, conspiracy of Obama, Putin, and French Pres. Sarkozy.
  3. Benghazi, murder of the U.S. ambassador Stevens.
  4. “On 6 August 2011, a U.S. Boeing CH-47 Chinook military helicopter was shot down while transporting a quick reaction force attempting to reinforce an engaged unit of Army Rangers in Wardak province, west of Kabul, Afghanistan. The resulting crash killed all 38 people on board—25 American specialists … Fifteen of the Navy SEALs that were killed were members of the Naval… “

If investigated, the listed events will open up a huge panorama of activities of the DNC leadership directed against the American Republic. My two assignments are inextricably intertwined. President Trump was right speaking about “inherited mess.” The mess was so tremendous, he initially asserted, the “swamp” indeed was deeper and more harmful and dangerous. I dedicated many pages to this “swamp,” I called it the Obama/Putin joint venture. A chronicling of this joint venture has been presented in detail in Socialist Lies. It is a protocol and diary of the Obama’s regime from its beginning in 2008. American Intelligence failed to expose Obama and the Democrat Party for aiding Putin in many different occurrences overseas to the detriment of American interests, including the Opioid epidemic in America. My book reveals just that.

In this connection, I have to correct our media and politicians: Putin will not stop at restoring the Soviet Union—Putin wants to be a President of the World, like Stalin’s intent—hence awareness of Stalinism is imperative. Alas, America did not escape the implementation of some elements, and attributes of Soviet Fascism by Obama’s regime.  Therefore, a person like Steve Bannon, who is talking about destruction of the administrative State, and who quotes Lenin by heart is extremely valuable to the Trump team. In our days—knowledge of the enemy is the best recipe for success…

Fall-ofBerlin-Wall

What Eastern Europe Can Teach Cuba and Venezuela by Daniel J. Mitchell

It appears that Venezuela is on the brink of collapse as it enters the fourth circle of statist hell.

And the death of Cuba’s long-time dictator gives hope that the people of that island nation may soon escape communist tyranny.

Moreover, one certainly hopes that the lunatic leadership of North Korea’s brutal regime won’t last forever.

Let’s cross our fingers that these evil governments will soon lose power. But that’s only the first step. We also need to think about the policies that would enable these nations to undo the damage of pervasive socialism.

We can learn some lessons by looking at the experience of post-communist nations in Eastern Europe, which is a topic I addressed in the latest edition of The Conservative, which is the quarterly magazine published by the Alliance of Conservatives and Reformers in Europe.

I started the article with some broad observations about grim political and economic impact of communism.

Communism was an awful system for people trapped behind the Iron Curtain. The political cost was enormous. Personal rights and individual liberties were sacrificed to protect the power of the state. Human rights were abused, dissidents were imprisoned, and some were even killed. Communism also imposed huge economic costs. Collectivized agriculture, central planning, price controls, and government-run industries were among the policies that resulted in a debilitating misallocation of resources. And because labor and capital were poorly utilized, living standards lagged far behind western nations.

That was the bad news.

The good news is that the Soviet Empire collapsed, the Berlin Wall was dismantled, and democratic forms of government are now the norm in Eastern Europe.

But good news isn’t perfect news. Nations that emerged from the Soviet Bloc are still economic laggards. And if you dig into the latest version of Economic Freedom of the World, a big problem is that post-communist nations have not been very successful in defending property rights and implementing the rule of law.

Establishing genuine capitalism, though, has been a bigger challenge. Part of the problem is policy. And to be more specific, data from the Fraser’s Institute’s Economic Freedom of the World shows that the major difference today between Western Europe and Eastern Europe (nations that were part of the Soviet Bloc) is that the former get much better scores for “Legal System and Property Rights.” Indeed, the average ranking of Western European nations is 20.6 (with 1 being the best) while the average ranking of Eastern European countries is 67.1 (Economic Freedom of the World ranks 159 jurisdictions).

Here’s a graph comparing Western European nations with Eastern European nations.

As you can see, this is an area where Western Europe leads the world. Nordic nations tend to be at the very top of the rankings (thus helping to offset bad fiscal policy in those countries), and other countries in the region also are highly ranked (though a few countries in the region, such as Italy and Greece, don’t get good scores).

Eastern European countries, by contrast, don’t do well. There’s a significant gap when looking at average scores. Indeed, only Estonia ranks in the top 25.

And bad scores in this category are akin to putting a house on a foundation of sand. Other policies may create a house that looks very nice, but it probably won’t last very long on the unstable foundation.

And speaking of other policies, post-communist nations have better fiscal policy than the countries from Western Europe. Or, to be more accurate, they have less-worse fiscal policy.

If you examine the overall ratings for “Size of Government,” Eastern European nations actually are ranked significantly better, with an average ranking of 89.2 compared to 129.2 for Western European countries. This is because tax rates tend to be lower (many former Soviet Bloc nations have flat tax regimes, for instance) and welfare states aren’t as burdensome.

As I already hinted, doing “significantly better” on fiscal policy than Western Europe does not mean Eastern Europe has good fiscal policy.

Indeed, an average ranking of 89 means that most Eastern European nations are in the bottom half of the world.

So while it’s good that some Eastern European nations have flat taxes, that’s not an economic elixir if there are very high payroll taxes, stifling value-added taxes, and onerous energy taxes.

And since the burden of government spending is extremely onerous in Western Europe, it’s hardly an impressive achievement that Eastern Europe ranks slightly higher.

Though there’s one aspect of fiscal policy where the post-communist countries are lagging their neighbors to the west.

…if you dig into the details and examine the various components that determine “Size of Government,” there’s one area where Eastern Europe lags. The numbers for “Government Enterprises and Investment” are better in Western Europe. …In other words, politicians play too large a role in the allocation of capital in former communist nations.

To put that message in blunter terms, there’s too much cronyism in Eastern Europe.

So long as politicians can directly (state-owned enterprises) or indirectly (handouts, subsidies, and bailouts) provide favors and tilt the playing field, the enriching forces of private markets will be stunted.

Which is why I shared this conclusion in my article.

The bottom line is that post-communist nations need to choose genuine capitalism if they want a brighter future for their citizens.

If you want to close with some good news, I did point out in the article that there are some bright spots in the region, especially Estonia, though Poland also has made big progress.

Kori Ali Muhammad

Black Nationalist Fresno killer member of Black Lives Matter

Heavy.com’s   lists five things that readers should know about Kori Ali Muhammad, the Fresno, California killer:

  1. The [Black Muslim] Gunman Randomly ‘Sprayed Rounds’ at [White] People as He Moved Through Downtown & Was Previously Convicted of a Federal Drug Charge.
  2. Muhammad’s Rambling [Hateful and Threatening] Social Media Posts Include a Reference to Donald Trump as a ‘White Devil,’ Police Shootings & Nation of Islam Teachings.
  3. The Gunman Was Already Wanted in the Slaying [Slaughter] of a [White] Security Guard at a Motel 6 & Was Homeless.
  4. The Shooter Reloaded & Cursed [Screamed Allah Akbar] as He Fired, & Made Disturbing [Anti-White] Rap Videos.
  5. One of the Victims Was Driven to a Nearby Police Station but Died There & the Shooter Fired 16 Times.

Muhammad was a member of Black Lives Matter (see video below). Janaya Khan, the co-founder of Black Lives Matter Toronto, writes:

The Movement for Black Lives is today’s iteration and continuation of the Black Power movements that formed in the 1960s. Black Lives Matter (BLM) was created when 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was murdered by police in 2013 in Florida, and has since developed into both an international movement and a network. I have been active in BLM since its conception, and I and a powerful team started the Black Lives Matter movement in Canada.

The Black Power and Black Lives Matter movements are black supremacist organizations.

Discover The Networks reports this about Black Racism:

A prominent exponent of black racism in recent decades has been Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, who has a long, well-documented history of referring to whites and Jews as “devils,” “bloodsuckers,” “vicious beasts,” and “the skunks of the planet.”

Farrakhan protege Malik Zulu Shabazz, leader of the New Black Panther Party, commonly refers to blacks as “God’s chosen people” and shouts “Black power!” during his speeches. Even as he denounces what he perceives to be the scourge of white supremacy, Shabazz embraces his own philosophy of racial superiority — essentially a mirror image of the worldview he ascribes to the legions of racist whites purportedly dotting the American landscape. Said Shabazz on one occasion: “Mendel, the German scientist teaches us that dark genes are dominant and light genes are recessive. Black Power!” At an April 2002 protest in Washington, DC, Shabazz thundered: “Kill every goddamn Zionist in Israel! Goddamn little babies, goddamn old ladies! Blow up Zionist supermarkets!”

[ … ]

The late black poet and professor Amiri Baraka asserted that blacks are justified in robbing or even killing whites, because the latter “already stole” everything from the former. “[The white man] owes you anything you want,” wrote Baraka, “even his life. All the stores will open if you say the magic words. The magic words are: Up against the wall mother f—er this is a stick up! … Let’s get together and kill him my man.” In another poem, Baraka wrote: “Rape the white girls. Rape their fathers. Cut the mothers’ throats.”

Media fails to report that Antifa woman taken down by Marine was throwing IEDs

antifa anarchist with bomb

Nathan Damigo, a Marine veteran, wrestling to the ground a woman with an IED (red circle).

There’s been media coverage of a woman Louise Rosealma being wrestled to the ground by a man. Rosealma was part of the Antifa group in Berkeley, California that attacked pro-Trump marchers.

Nathan Damigo, a Marine veteran who was there saw that Rosealma was putting M80 explosive devices inside glass bottles and throwing them at the pro-Trump rally marchers.

So Louise Rosealma was literally making IED’s. This makes her no better than the Boston Marathon bombers.

According to Wikipedia:

M-80s are an American class of large powerful firecrackers, sometimes called salutes. M-80s were originally made in the early 20th century by the U.S. military to simulate explosives or artillery fire; later, M-80s were manufactured as fireworks.

You can see in the picture (above right) that she has her weapon, a glass bottle with an M80 in it, in her hand as Damigo hits her in the face to subdue the bomb threat.

Marines are trained to run towards the fight not away from it, to put their lives on the line so others won’t get hurt. Perfect example of that here.

According to CBS Los Angeles, “The 20-year-old [Louise Rosealma] drove to the Bay Area with friends to march against the alt-right organized event. Rosealma, a member of the anti-fascist movement, says she had only been at the protest for about 20 minutes when a smoke bomb went off. At that point, she says, she and her boyfriend were charged.”

She was being charged by Damigo because she was a threat to the safety of others.

It seems the fakestream media never reports the truth anymore.

President Trump’s Arrest Record So Far: 21,000 Illegals

Immigration and Customs Enforcement under President Donald Trump has ratcheted arrests to the point that 21,000 illegals have been detained by authorities in the first few weeks of the new administration, President Donald Trump has cracked down on illegals in the United States, as he promised during his campaign.


ICE provided the stats to the Washington Post showing how arrests of illegals rose 32.6 percent during the first few weeks of Trump’s take-over of the White House.

Breitbart tells more:

“Immigration and Customs Enforcement arrested 21,362 illegal aliens from January 20 through March 13, an increase of 5,258 from the same period in 2016.

“Nearly 75 percent of those arrested, a total of 17,921, are criminal illegal aliens. The number of non-criminal illegal aliens arrested has more than doubled.

“A spokeswoman for ICE said that the focus remains primarily on those who are a danger to the security of U.S., anyone who is in the U.S. illegally can face deportation.

“‘ … As [Homeland Security] Secretary [John F.] Kelly has made clear, ICE will no longer exempt classes or categories of removable aliens from potential enforcement,’ spokeswoman Jennifer Elzea said in a statement.

“The total number of illegal aliens who have been deported, not just arrested, is down by 1.2 percent compared to the same period last year. Eleza explained it takes time to move forward with deportation proceedings after arresting an illegal alien. Overall, the total number arrested increased by 15 percent compared to the same period last year.

“Since President Trump took office on January 20, the apprehension of illegal aliens attempting to enter the United States has decreased by 61 percent, as reported by Breitbart Texas.”

Trump Effect: Central American migrants want asylum in Mexico, not moving on to U.S.

And, that is how asylum is supposed to work.

Anyone who meets the legal definition of a refugee*** is supposed to seek asylum in the first safe country they reach—not go asylum-shopping throughout the continent as we saw in yesterday’s report on the rush to the Canadian border by many migrants illegally in the US.

For probably a couple of decades the open borders left has been trying to expand the definition of ‘refugee’ (fleeing violence or looking for better economic conditions does not make one a refugee!) and to condone the practice of asylum-shopping (seeking the best deal!).

The Left wants you to believe that anyone on the move, anywhere in the world, is a legitimate refugee!

Here is a sob-story about how Mexico is being increasingly saddled with Central Americans who would normally be simply passing through to a better deal in the US.

From Buzzfeed News (hat tip: Joanne):

Fleeing violence in their home countries, more Central Americans are seeking asylum in Mexico instead of making the trip north to the US, according to the United Nations.

More Central Americans are seeking asylum upon reaching Mexico, rather than attempt to make it into the US, where the Trump administration has been clamping down on immigration.

Mark Manly (UNHCR)

The number of Central Americans applying for refugee status in Mexico has been steadily increasing since 2011, but applications surged in 2016 by 156% compared to the year prior, according to Mark Manly, a representative in Mexico for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

“What we have seen is more people arrive in Mexico, not because they’re in transit for a better future in the United States, but they are fleeing for their lives and see in Mexico a country that can offer protection and asylum,” Manly said in an interview released by the UN.

As in previous years, many Central Americans continue to flee violence in Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador, but instead of passing through on their way to the US, many of them are looking to make a new home in Mexico, Manly said. [That is how asylum is supposed to work!—ed]

From November 2016 to March, Mexico’s commission for refugee assistance, known as COMAR, received 5,421 asylum applications. During the same five-month period in 2015, the agency received 2,148 applications, Reuters reported.

As applications for refugee status mount, the Mexico government and United Nations have had to beef up border resources to handle the strain on resources.  [Good! Not our problem!—ed]

More here.

Endnote:

Obama began processing Central Americans to the US as ‘refugees’ directly from El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala last year.  The practice continues under Trump.  We have admitted (directly from their home country) over a thousand (1,106 as of today) mostly fake ‘refugees’ from El Salvador to the US in FY2016 and 2017.

*** Refugee definition (do you see anything in here about violence or economic need?)

(42) The term “refugee” means:

(A) any person who is outside any country of such person’s nationality or, in the case of a person having no nationality, is outside any country in which such person last habitually resided, and who is unable or unwilling to return to, and is unable or unwilling to avail himself or herself of the protection of, that country because of persecution or a well-founded fear of persecution on account of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion….

For the zillionth time, a legitimate refugee is supposed to be able to prove he or she will be PERSECUTED!  Anyone looking for economic well-being is an “economic migrant.”  Fleeing gangs and violence does not make one a refugee! Notice that war isn’t mentioned either!

Marine Le Pen: ‘Give us France back, for God’s sake’

Marine Le Pen said:

The choice on Sunday is simple: It is a choice between a France that is rising again and a France that is sinking.

She is right. Far too many Westerners are still licking old (now gangrenous) wounds from eons ago. Europeans and white people are deemed inherently or inveterately evil because of colonialism and racism, and so deserve to be punished, no matter how the global situation has changed since colonial days. This punishment, moreover, is without limitations.

Buzzwords such as “globalization,” “diversity,” and “tolerance,” which may once have had relatively benign meanings, have been warped and manipulated as part of the larger endeavor to destroy Western civilization from within. Unscrupulous Islamic supremacist warriors play the victimhood ploy with proficiency. They would have us all turn a blind eye to the history of Islamic jihad conquest prior to the era of colonialism, as well as to present-day slavery in some Muslim countries, the general Islamic intolerance and abuse of religious minorities and infidels, and the sickening treatment of women that is sanctioned by Sharia law.

Le Pen also said:

Mass immigration is not an opportunity for France, it’s a tragedy for France…Give us France back, for God’s sake.

Marine Le Pen

“Front National’s Marine Le Pen attacks the ’savage globalisation’ of rivals”, by Jon Rogers , Express, April 17, 2017:

FRONT National presidential candidate Marine Le Pen has told a rally in Paris that French voters have a choice between the “savage globalisation” promoted by her rivals and her patriotism.

She said: “The choice on Sunday is simple: It is a choice between a France that is rising again and a France that is sinking.“

In an attack on her rivals such as Francois Fillon and Jean-Luc Melenchon she said they advocated “savage globalisation” compared to her “camp of patriots”.

She added: “Give us France back, for God’s sake,” which sparked the 5,000 supporters who had filled the Zenith concert hall in the French capital to chant: “This is our home.”

Ms Le Pen also played on her familiar topics of the party being anti-European Union and anti-immigration.

She said: “I will protect you. My first measure as president will be to reinstate France’s borders.

“Mass immigration is not an opportunity for France, it’s a tragedy for France,” she said, adding that she would immediately impose a moratorium on immigration.”

She continued: ”We can’t decide who is allowed to come here any more. The French sometimes have fewer rights than foreigners – even illegal ones.”

Scuffles with police erupted outside the Zenith concert hall in north-east Paris earlier this evening with around 60-80 anti-Front National protestors taking to the streets of the French capital for the second night running.

Police fired teargas at the protesters, some of whom threw chunks of wood. The protesters then left, followed by a small group of police.

The French presidential contest is seen as being very close and none of the candidates can be assured of making it through to the second round with the polls being volatile and too close to call with certainty.

All the main candidates are making a concerted effort as the campaign enters the final week for the first round of voting which takes place on Sunday.

According to the latest poll, the centrist Emmanuel Macron is marginally in the lead and is expected to gain 23 percent in the first round of France’s presidential election.

Ms Le Pen is only just behind on 22.5 percent with Francois Fillon and Jean-Luc Melenchon on an equal footing, both on 19.5 percent.

Mr Macron would bet Ms Le Pen in the second round by 60 percent to 40 percent, according to the Fop-Fiducial poll.

A separate daily Opinionway poll showed on Monday that Macron was tied with Le Pen in the first round of voting at 22 percent, with Fillon at their heals on 21 percent followed by Melenchon on 18 percent.

Mr Macron was seen beating Ms Le Pen in the runoff by 64 percent to 36.

There are a total of 11 contenders for the presidency but only four are seen as serious contenders.

There was chaos on the streets of Paris yesterday as activists took the streets with flares as they protested about the rise of Ms Le Pen.

Protestors shouted: “This is Paris! Paris is antifascist.”

Eye witnesses said that around 400 people had taken part in a march. Most protestors were peaceful but a small group were said to have formed an angry mob, throwing flares…..

“3 people killed in ‘random’ shootings in downtown Fresno,” BNO News, April 18, 2017 (thanks to Good Ideas Vs Bad):

Three people have been killed in California after a series of “random” shootings in downtown Fresno, officials say. The suspect – who shouted “Allahu Akbar” while being taken into custody – is also a suspect in an earlier shooting.

The incident began just before 11 a.m. PT on Tuesday when officers received reports of a shooting in downtown Fresno, followed soon after by 3 additional shootings. A total of 3 people were shot at 3 separate locations.

According to Police Chief Jerry Dyer, the suspect was later spotted by a police officer, after which he “literally dove onto the ground”. While being taken into custody, the man – identified as 39-year-old Kori Ali Muhammad – shouted “Allahu Akbar.”

It is not yet known whether the shootings are an act of terrorism, Chief Dyer said. Muhammad was already wanted in connection with the murder of a security guard at a motel in Fresno.

As a result of the shootings, all Fresno County government offices and a number of businesses in the area were put on lockdown….

To Canada’s Senators: Please pass Bill S- 219 — Sanctions Against the Islamic Republic of Iran

The Honorable Senators:

As Canada’s Senate will debate whether to approve or oppose Bill S-219, sanctions against the Islamic Republic of Iran, I invite you to please watch this video by Dennis Prager that answers 5+1’s Iran Nuke deal’s biggest questions:

Was the agreement a good or bad deal? Would it make it harder or easier for Iran to develop nuclear weapons? Would it make Iran and its terror proxies stronger or weaker? Should the U.S. Congress support or defeat the deal?

The White House is poised to ratchet up existing sanctions against Iran and is weighing a much stricter interpretation of the nuclear agreement between Tehran and major world powers. The administration is inclined to adopt a “more rigorous application of the tools at its disposal,” a senior White House official told Foreign Policy, referring to sanctions policy. Among the options under consideration: broadening U.S. sanctions to include much larger chunks of the Iranian economy linked to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC). No final decision has been taken by the president or the cabinet. But officials said some decisions will need to be taken soon. On April 25, Iran and the six governments that negotiated the nuclear deal with Tehran, including the United States, are due to meet in Vienna for a quarterly review of the accord.”

In coming weeks, the Senate will be reviewing Bill S-219, and at the same time, the Iranian Canadian Congress, an Iranian regime lobby “NGO” based in Toronto, Ontario which represents a very small number of Iranians in Canada is vigorously advocating against Bill S-219 and publicly is lobbying for the Islamic Republic of Iran and it’s interests.

Former ICC board members have already sent emails about the current ICC executive to the Senate Committee in-charge of Bill S-219.

I kindly request that you please read my email and allow me to have the opportunity to discuss with you and provide insight to rectify this matter.

Iran’s leaders have made it abundantly clear they are anti-Democracy and have posed threats to the U.S. and Israel. Why would Canada allow diplomatic relations with a country with a covert terrorist agenda?

My name is Shabnam Assadollahi, and I am a concerned Canadian citizen of Iranian background having experienced torture and cruelty as a teenager at the hands of Islamic extremists. I am lucky to be alive, am thankful to live in Canada and am extremely concerned about the safety of our country.

As a teenager born and living in Iran, I did not even consider that my life would be forever changed by the world’s influences on my country. Imagine for a moment a mother in Iran living a quiet uneventful life with her children. Imagine the horror of that same woman when in the early hours of the morning she comes face to face with the notorious Revolutionary Guards, forcing their way into her home to arrest her 16 year old daughter. I am that daughter.

There are no words to describe what life in prison was like for a teenager who had never been apart from her parents, and I can tell you that there is only one experience worse than being tortured in this way; having to listen to others scream and beg, not for their lives, but for their death.

I was wrongfully imprisoned in Iran at age 16, sentenced for 18 months for exercising my free speech and for questioning Islam; the religion that I was unwillingly born into. In reality, the 18 month sentence was imputed upon me because of the Islamic Republic of Iran’s Constitutional law.

To this day, I have no idea how my life was spared out of Evin prison.

I am a miracle before you today. You see, as hopeless, difficult, and deathly depressing as it was, after 18 months I was freed from my chains not having been raped and still possessing my life.

Then and today, many in Iran are still facing these horrors, imprisoned for speaking out, or attempting to live, in a manner against Iranian Islamic tyranny and ideology. They are systematically raped and murdered by those who are full of darkness and lost in a dogmatic and barbaric way of life.

Still now, even abroad, political dissidents such as myself are threatened all over the world by this Regime who, thanks to the former US President’s controversial ” Iran NUKE DEAL”, is gaining greater strength and plotting world jihad and our demise. I cannot emphasize enough that I speak to you about The State Leading Sponsor of Middle Eastern and Global Terrorism, A reality seemingly denied by the former US administration.

Last year, I translated an article written about what one of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Leaders had threatened to do to political dissidents who had escaped to other countries and to other enemies around the world. He said that Iran would place their fighters in America and other western nations and kill all political dissidents and enemies abroad.

Is Canada planning to have diplomatic ties with Iran, so their diplomats could assassinate Iranian dissidents?

This matter is of great urgency for me, my fellow dissidents, and for all citizens living in North America! The bullied today can easily become you tomorrow. You don’t want to know the immorality of their intimidation.

No amount of politicking can fool or intimidate me. I have stared down a regime of death and human rights violations, I’ve been imprisoned, and have emerged with insights to warn the West, particularly those who undeservedly hold positions of trust and power, but care mostly about the latter.

We are all at risk! In the name of religious freedom the Islamic world, including Iran, has wheedled and entrenched itself into many walks of life in the West, including the political sphere. To clarify I am not speaking against all Muslims, but Radical Islamic Jihadists who hide behind a free and open society, yet are really wolves in sheep’s clothing.

Canada should expand sanctions on the IRGC and the Supreme Leader’s financial empire, and strongly enforce those sanctions. Canada should develop a comprehensive order of sanctions against those Iranian officials who have violated the human rights of the Iranian people over the last 4 decades. Since Iran’s ballistic missile program is a threat in the region and to the whole earth, we desire Canada and the USA to form an international coalition to pressure and force the Islamic Republic of Iran to cease its pursuit of long-range ballistic missiles.

North American Coalition must confront the IRGC’s malicious behavior in the region, on all fronts, and by every means possible and available. Many of the people of Iran no longer support the Regime and we desire Canada to support the pro democracy Iranians whose goal is to replace the Khomeinist regime of Tehran with a secular and democratic government. The time is now for  Canada and  The United States to stand by the Iranian people instead of holding secret discussions with corrupt Islamic fundamentalists.

The problem right now on the issue of sanctions and economic engagement is that Canada is engaging with an incredibly corrupt regime — a regime that controls the wealth of Iran.

In the wake of Canadian politicians reaching out to the Islamic Republic of Iran, there was a worrisome meeting organized by the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Iran-Canada Business Council in Montreal on March 28, 2017. Mehdi Karbassian, Iran’s deputy minister and a member of IRGC (Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps), was invited as the Canadian group’s “honorary” guest to speak at their Iran Focused Forum in Montreal. The goal of the meeting was to promote Canadian investment in the Islamic Republic of Iran, a totalitarian dictatorship that systematically oppresses their people and commits massive human rights violations, and terrorist activities across the Middle East and region.

For me as an Iranian Canadian dissident, this was not an innocent meeting on business opportunities, but rather was part of a larger trend of Iranian infiltration into Canada that seeks to empower the Islamic Republic in North America at the expense of members of the Iranian diaspora who outspokenly oppose the regime. They seek to empower the Iran lobby by presenting the Islamic Republic merely as another country to do business with and to silence us for being opposed to giving funds to a totalitarian dictatorship.

According to a report in Canada Israel Jewish News, this development comes after Canadian Liberal MP Majid Jowhari met with Iranian parliamentarians in order to discuss advancing Iranian-Canadian relations. Canadian MP Majid Jowhari met with Iranian MP’s  Alim Yarmohammadi, Yonathan Betkolia, Mehrdad Lahooti, and Ali Bahraini. According to the report, the Iranian delegation was in Canada to meet with officials at the International Civil Aviation Organization, which is headquartered in Montreal.

Photos on Lahooti’s Instagram account show they also visited the International Air Transport Association and CAE Inc., a Montreal company that specializes in aviation, defense and security training and flight simulation products, which is all trade that helps to empower Iranian aggression across the Middle East. The meeting came after Montreal’s mayor and former Liberal MP Denis Coderre visited Iran in order to meet with Tehran’s mayor. Tehran’s Mayor Bagher Galibaf is an infamous IRCG member and he made some secret deals with Coderre.

In recent times, Karbaschian has been traveling across the world promoting the economic interests of the Islamic Republic of Iran. He succeeded to get Russia, India, and Italy to invest in the Iranian mining industry, which is another type of investment that helps to encourage Iranian aggression in Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, and Yemen. Now, he possibly wants Canada to follow in their footsteps. These investments help to empower the regime by ensuring that they have the funds to stay in power and implement their terrorist agenda domestically, in the Middle East, and across the world. For this reason, I outspokenly oppose this development and stand against this meeting in Montreal.

The tragedy of indulging the current Iranian government with a Canadian relationship has nothing to do with Canada’s stance on the death penalty for criminals. No, it’s far more dire! This issue at hand is the massacre of Iran’s innocent citizens–by the very government with which the Liberal Government of Canada plans to open a dialogue–for nothing more than ideological non-compliance.

Imagine a country where its citizens are ruled not by freedoms and the equality of secular laws, but by twisted interpretations of a patriarchal theocracy. What is the benefit to Canada in trying to understand a political regime that views tolerance as weakness, and kindness as surrender?

Iran has not demonstrated respect for the UN. Curiously, they seem to look at the international community like a tormentor would look at naive children, placating their worries with their patronizing platitudes, understanding that there will be no repercussions or accountability attached to their future behavior. And, understandably so, Iran doesn’t fear Canada’s anger or shunning. They (rightfully) know that Canadians place a higher regard on “niceness” than on “justice” or “integrity”. Who can blame their high-handed approach and their eagerness to “own” us, given their Situation Analysis on our current government mindsets?

As a political figure entrusted to protect the interests of Canada, please ask these questions during the Iran related initiative on Bill S-129.

  1. Would the Islamic Republic of Iran permit Christians to build Churches in Iran, stop imprisoning of converts from Islam, allow Sunnis to build mosques in Tehran, and leave the Baha’is alone to peacefully bury their dead, to worship according to their faith, to continue their education in universities ,and to freely have their businesses running; all without political or social repercussions?
  2. Would the Islamic Republic of Iran allow women to choose to wear the hijab (or not) instead of wearing a state forced hijab, without political or social repercussions, and allow women to watch games live at the Stadiums?  

These are merely litmus-test questions to determine whether Iran is acting in good faith.  A negative answer to either question lets you know their true colors and feelings towards even the most basic of human rights, and that they are merely toying with “gullible” Canada.

The Honorable Senators,

There has not been an Iranian embassy in the US for nearly four decades and yet Americans have been able to negotiate or even free their hostages. Let’s ask why the Iran regime lobby in Canada is so eager to sweet-talk “easy mark” Canada to reopen diplomatic relations?  This should raise red flags!

The words of Khamenei and Rouhani taint the US deal, and what does that tell you?  Will Canadians or the Americans be allowed to go in and inspect their nuclear facilities? Or, will inspection permission be granted conveniently at Iran’s own choosing (if so, they may as well inspect themselves). There is a 24 day notice required which can be extended even longer.  Unacceptable! Like a puppy mill, much horror can be hidden with such an irresponsible lax timeline, and no accommodation for surprise inspections.

Iran’s President, Hassan Rouhani, dubbed the deal “evident victory”.  This was no accident of speech; it’s the Islamic traditional phrase referring to Muhammad’s raids on the caravans of the pagan Arabs of Mecca. The deal, said Rouhani, was “the greatest diplomatic victory in Islamic history.” Not just Iranian history, but Islamic history.”  Why would Canada want to be publicly seen as condoning that? Canada is a country, not a religion.

It’s certainly disturbing for peaceful Canadians to learn that Iran’s terrorist leader Ali Khamenei’s followers pray for “Death to “arrogant” America and Death to Israel!”   That is extremely offensive to North Americans and to our vibrant and diverse Jewish communities.  How unsettling that the Canadian government wants to ignore this kind of racial intolerance to the Jewish religion and to the Christian religion!  They don’t support freedom of religion.  Why would Canada want to condone that?

When Khamenei jubilantly crowed about the nuclear agreement, he stated unapologetically that the U.S. and its allies had been “forced to accept and stand the spinning of thousands of centrifuges and continuation of research and development in Iran, and it has no meaning but the Iranian nation’s might.”  This should terrify you, not entice you, to want to reopen the conversation for a relationship!

The Islamic Republic of Iran’s position is offensive and oppressive to women and girls, to ethnic minorities, to Jews, to North American free society, and to our biggest allies and protectors, the US.  Please rethink this foray into a dangerous and intolerant relationship.

Rapprochement with Iran – through exchanges of ambassadors or otherwise – will bring no advantage other than to the fortunes of the mullahs’ malevolent, emboldened rule. Tehran’s fanatical, aggressively destabilizing regime, and its friends and influencers in Canada, already have enough of a presence in this country and beyond. Rather than weaken, we must limit the ayatollahs’ avenues into our nation, contain this global threat, and embrace sound international efforts to encourage constructive democratic change in Iran.
