VIDEO: Culture Warrior Milo Yiannopoulos Resigns from Breitbart

Milo Yiannopoulos is a man of character. He does the right things for the right reasons.

Milo has resigned as editor of Breitbart Tech after his remarks on sexual relationships between boys and older men went public. This is interesting because academics are promoting pedophilia and they have yet to be dismissed.

Dr. Judith Reisman in her column “They’re mainstreaming pedophilia!” reported in March 2016:

Matt Barber, associate dean of the Liberty University School of Law, and I attended the “B4U-ACT” pedophile conference Aug. 17 [2015]. To eliminate the “stigma” against pedophiles, this growing sexual anarchist lobby wants the American Psychiatric Association (APA) to redefine pedophilia as a normal sexual orientation of “Minor-Attracted Persons.”

[ … ]

In 1973, our “post Kinsey era,” a small APA committee of psychiatrists, quite terrified by homosexist public harassment, agreed to rely on Kinsey’s fraudulent human sexuality “data” to redefine homosexuality as normal, removing it from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM) of mental disorders.

[ … ]

To redefine homosexuality as a normal “orientation,” nature not nurture, researchers were told to ignore all data of early sex abuse or other trauma. This hoax was followed by the 1999 U.S. Department of Justice data that found 64 percent of forcible sodomy victims to be boys under age 12. [Emphasis added]

Fast forward to the treatment of Milo Yiannopoulos, a gay man who misspoke. Milo is the target of “homosexist public harassment.” Yiannopoulos tweeted this after the tape of his comments surfaced:

Milo’s resignation is a principled move. One that those who are destroying him would never make. Milo stated that he did not want “to allow my poor choice of words to detract from my [Breitbart] colleagues’ important reporting.”

He did what General Flynn did to protect the cause. He must be celebrated for that.

Milo is a cultural warrior who is fighting against those who would bring America down. He gained more and more national attention by using his speaking skills to tell the truth about those who would destroy our culture. America is in a cultural war and Milo has become a wounded warrior in the war against cultural relativism.

We cannot but believe that Milo will rise, like the Phoenix, from the ashes to fight once again. We look forward to his biting commentary and brilliance to shine the light on those who would destroy our uniquely American culture.

Milo, we are with you. One team, one fight!

VIDEO: Knight of God — Review of the Film ‘Ignatius of Loyola’

Brad Miner reviews a movie about the founder of the Jesuits. It is as good as any Catholic film may hope to be.

Although this biopic of the founder of the Jesuit order premiered last summer, I only had a chance to see it this past week. Writer-director Paolo Dy’s film was shot – in the English language – in Spain and the Philippines under the auspices of the Filipino Jesuit Communications Foundation (JesCom Films). It’s unlikely to be on a screen at your local Cineplex, but – as I’ll explain towards the end of this review –you can take the initiative to arrange a screening for your church group or other Catholic organization.

And I urge you to do so, because this is a Catholic film that stands head and shoulders above any I’ve seen in years. It’s both truly Catholic and superb cinema.

The film begins with fire and water – a leitmotiv throughout. One goes into the fire of conversion and emerges through the water of new life. Iñigo Lopez de Loyola (played the Spanish actor Andreas Muñoz) unfolds like a flower opening in scorched earth – he is a soldier proofed like a sword in flame then shoved into water to forge its strength. This is actually a scene, and it’s powerful.

The story of Loyola, a Spanish nobleman broken by war who goes on to found the Society of Jesus, is like many true tales of conversion. From Augustine to Merton, but especially St. Francis of Assisi before him and Charles de Foucauld after, who were also soldiers for whom the deep wounds of war led to a deeper conviction to serve Christ. Like St. Augustine, Loyola lived a somewhat carnal life until he was severely wounded in the Battle of Pamplona in 1521.

VIDEO: Lawmakers probe U.S. embassy funding of George Soros groups

This is skulduggery of the Obama’s State Department. And no enemedia coverage on this subterfuge.

Macedonia: Leading Republican House representative Christopher Smith announced an investigation in the activities of the US Embassy in Macedonia, and the allegations that it has acted in an openly partisan way in the past years, supporting the left wing SDSM party. The call comes after the Embassy failed to respond to a letter signed by Smith and five other GOP representatives, who demanded answers over meddling in domestic politics, but also over Embassy funding for activities of the George Soros led Foundation Open Society Macedonia.

“The US Ambassador should have absolutely no role in forming a Government and taking sides in putting together a coalition. That is not the place of the United States of America or its representative in Skopje. I asked specific questions in this letter. We asked, the group of members of the House of Representatives whether or not there was any collaboration with the center-left parties on when elections should take place. We should have no role in that! We should be talking about free and fair elections, unfettered access to the media, but in no way should we take sides. So, if this Ambassador has taken sides, he should be fired! He should be fired immediately!”, representative Smith told the Macedonian Television correspondent in Washington D.C.

Representative Smith reacts following numerous reports that the US Embassy has extended significant funds to activities of NGO groups associated with the Soros network. According to Smith, if the US Government gives funding to NGO activities, they should go to non-partisan and neutral groups, and not to the Soros led groups for whom there are long-standing allegations that they are coordinating their actions with the social-democratic SDSM party.

Republican lawmakers in Washington have started asking questions about whether U.S. tax dollars also were being used to fund Soros projects in the small, conservative-led country of Macedonia.  Rep. Christopher Smith, R-N.J., led a group of House lawmakers in writing to Ambassador Jess Baily — an Obama appointee — demanding answers. Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, also expressed concerns about USAID money going to Soros’ Open Society Foundations as part of a broader concern that the U.S. Embassy has been taking sides in party politics.

“I have received credible reports that, over the past few years, the US Mission to Macedonia has actively intervened in the party politics of Macedonia, as well as the shaping of its media environment and civil society, often favoring groups of one political persuasion over another,” Lee said in his letter.

US Congressman Trent Franks, Republican representative from Arizona), has joined the calls of his colleagues for investigating the role of the US Embassy in Macedonia regarding the allegations about using the US tax dollars for funding NGOs close to George Soros. (FOX)

It’s a suspicious financing of NGOs, something the US Embassy has failed to explain and justify thus far, Franks told the Macedonian Television.

‘We make efforts to promote human rights and freedom, something we believe in. We are grateful for the critical reports coming from your country as we wish to keep nourishing the good relations with Macedonia. We are facing suspicious US Mission’s financing of Soros-linked organizations, whose standards are counter to everything America believes in’ Franks said.

MINA: He pointed out that Macedonia could rely on US support for preserving own freedom and democracy,

Earlier, Republican lawmakers in Washington started asking questions about whether US tax-payers money also was being used to fund Soros projects in Macedonia.

Rep. Christopher Smith, led a group of House lawmakers in writing to Ambassador Jess Baily, appointed by the Barack Obama administration, demanding answers. Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, also expressed concerns about USAID money going to Soros’ Open Society Foundations as part of a broader concern that the US Embassy has been taking sides in party politics.

“I have received credible reports that, over the past few years, the US Mission to Macedonia has actively intervened in the party politics of Macedonia, as well as the shaping of its media environment and civil society, often favoring groups of one political persuasion over another,” Lee said in his letter.

Baily lies on Macedonian TV

In an interview with Sitel TV, the US Ambassador was probed on his activities and coordination with the SPO to which he had no response, but afterwards lied that he has provided an answer to the official questions from US Congress on his illegal activities in Macedonia. Members of US Congress just yesterday stated they have not received any response from the US Embassy in Macedonia. Knowing his days are numbered, it’s likely much better for Baily to simply remain silent and await the slow moving US bureaucracy to begin a recall case against him which could take months. Unless Rex Tillerson himself makes a phone call, then he would be removed at once.

US CONGRESSMAN FRANKS SLAMS BAILY: STILL NO EXPLANATION ON FUNDING SOROS NGOS

February 19, 2017, Independent Insider:

The challenge that we’ve seen is some questionable funding that the US mission has made to organization associated to George Soros, which are really the antithesis to many of the things that America believes, said USCongressman and Arizona Republican Trent Franks, in an interview with the Macedonian National Television (MRTV).

Franks has joined the Congress and Senate in criticizing the USEmbassy to Macedonia for financing NGOs related to George Soros’s foundation.

Below we have featured the video interview with Congressman Franks.

DRAIN THE CLERICAL SWAMP: Until things change, nothing will change!

Last week, in Friday’s Vortex, we asked the question directly to Fr. James Martin: Do you identify as a homosexual? Yes or no?

There are many reasons for that question to be asked, and those reasons criss-cross over theological, spiritual and political lines. Let’s begin our further examination of this question about Fr. Martin with the understanding that there are many priests and bishops and even cardinals who are either secret homosexuals, or at least way too friendly to that agenda. Pope Benedict said so. Pope Francis has said so, and the raw facts of the state of the Church these days say so, not to mention the gigantic homosexual priest sex abuse scandal that cost the Church in the U.S. nearly $3 billion.

Men who identify as homosexuals who go on to get ordained are an extreme danger to the Church and the average Catholic. It’s why the Church forbids them from being ordained in the first place — a rule that many liberal and Church of Nice bishops simply ignore — and they were doing it long before Pope Francis arrived on the scene.

Many bishops today still seem unconcerned about ordaining a man who identifies as homosexual — perhaps because they feel an affinity with them — as long as that man doesn’t appear to display traits which might make him a financial or legal liability down the road for abusing altar boys.

VIDEO: The First Lady’s prayer and Fake News media are ‘the enemy of the people’

President Trump gave a speech in Melbourne, Florida to a gathering over over 9,000 citizens. Jacob Gardenswartz from Vox posted a transcript of the remarks of the First Lady and President Trump. The First Lady began with a prayer before introducing her husband.

First Lady Melania Trump, before introducing her husband, opened her remarks with a prayer, the Lord’s Prayer. This is a first and shows the strong Christian faith of America’s First Lady. Here are Melania Trump’s remarks:

Thank you. Let us pray. Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed is your name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespasses against us. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen.

Good afternoon. It is my honor and great pleasure to stand here before you as the First Lady of the United States. The mid— the America we envision is one that works for all Americans, and where all Americans can work and succeed. A nation committed to a greater civility and unity between people from all sides of the political divide. I will always stay true to myself and be truthful to you, no matter what the opposition is saying about me.

I will act in the best interest of all of you. I am committed to creating and supporting initiatives geared to my heart, which will have impacts on women and children all around the world.

My husband is creating a country of great safety and prosperity. Ladies and gentlemen, I’m proud to introduce the President of the United States, Donald Trump.

President Trump spoke about the progress he has made to fulfill the promises he made to the American people during his remarks. The President also took aim at the fake news media and spoke truth to power. President Trump said:

I also want to speak to you without the filter of the fake news. The dishonest media which has published one false story after another with no sources, even though they pretend they have them, they make them up in many cases, they just don’t want to report the truth and they’ve been calling us wrong now for two years. They don’t get it. By they’re starting to get it. I can tell you that. They’ve become a big part of the problem. They are part of the corrupt system. Thomas Jefferson, Andrew Jackson, and Abraham Lincoln and many of our greatest presidents fought with the media and called them out often times on their lies. When the media lies to people, I will never, ever let them get away with it. I will do whatever I can that. They don’t get away with it.

They have their own agenda and their agenda is not your agenda. In fact, Thomas Jefferson said, “nothing can be believed which is seen in a newspaper.” “Truth itself,” he said, “becomes suspicious by being put into that polluted vehicle,” that was June 14, my birthday, 1807. But despite all their lies, misrepresentations, and false stories, they could not defeat us in the primaries, and they could not defeat us in the general election, and we will continue to expose them for what they are, and most importantly, we will continue to win, win, win.

We are not going to let the fake news tell us what to do, how to live, or what to believe. We are free and independent people and we will make our own choices.

We are here today to speak the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. I hear your demands, I hear your voices and I promise you I will deliver. [Emphasis added]

President Trump stated emphatically to a roaring gathering of Floridians, “But we believe in two simple rules. Buy American and hire American. We believe it.”

President Trump tweeted the following about the “fake news media”:

The fake news media is the enemy of the people. The fake news media is a polluted vehicle.

Hisb Ut Tahrir logo

VIDEO: Don’t bite the hand that feeds you

Hizb-ut-Tahrir are an extreme radical Islamic political group.

Discover the Networks reports:

Hizb-ut-Tahrir (Arabic for “The Party of Liberation”) has its roots in the political party al-Hay’at al-Tahrir al-Islami (“The Islamic Society of Liberation”), which in 1951 was established in Jordanian-controlled East Jerusalem by Sheikh Taqi-ud-deen Al-Nabahani (an associate and contemporary of the pro-Nazi Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Sheikh Haji Amin Al-Housseini).

Hizb-ut-Tahrir defines itself as “a political group and not a priestly one,” a “political party whose ideology is Islam, so politics is its work and Islam is its ideology.” It “works within the Ummah [community of believers] … so that she adopts Islam as her cause and is led to restore the Khilafah [Caliphate, or Islamic kingdom] and the ruling by what Allah revealed.”

Rejecting Western notions of both democracy and capitalism as tools that allegedly have led to the colonization and subjugation of Islamic nations, Hizb-ut-Tahrir’s long-term objective is to replace existing governments with theocratic Muslim rule and to bring about a worldwide Islamic government under a single ruler (caliph). In such an ideal Islamic state, says Hizb-ut-Tahrir, “all of life’s affairs in society are administered according to the Shari’ah rules,” or strict Islamic law.

[ … ]
Hizb-ut-Tahrir is outlawed in Russia, Germany, France, the Netherlands, and numerous Muslim countries (including Egypt, Pakisan, and Saudi Arabia) that regard it as a radical, subversive, terrorist organization that spreads “hate and violence” and seeks to overthrow their governments.

It would do well for all Aussies to actually look up their web page in Australia. It fairly well declares war on Australian culture, laws, and freedoms.

They are in many other countries as way too radical, and in teaching and promoting civil unrest and violence as a means to their goal of ultimate rule of the globe as an Islamic run caliphate, with all the attendant persecution that goes with this evil cult.

America-Voter-Fraud

VIDEO: Expert Panel — Voter Fraud Is Real

We convened four of the nation’s top experts on election integrity this week to discuss the very timely topic of voter fraud, and you should watch the webcast to understand what’s really going on out there in our election system.

I thought that Cleta Mitchell, partner and political law attorney at Foley & Lardner LLP, summed it up succinctly when she said: “There is a systematic, well-funded, left wing, liberal, progressive and now Democratic Party open effort to dismantle the election administrative system in our country that over the past century grew up to maintain the integrity of our elections.”

The evidence is stunning. Hans von Spakovsky, manager of the Election Law Reform Initiative, and Senior Legal Fellow for the Meese Center for Legal and Judicial Studies at the Heritage Foundation, said:  “The United States has a long history of voter fraud that has been documented and can make a difference in close a election. Those are the words of the Supreme Court. We started a database and started putting in it cases as we ran across them. All we’re putting in are cases where individuals have been convicted and cases where judge ordered new election. Without much effort on our part, we found 462 case and 742 criminal convictions.”

Our own Robert Popper, Senior Attorney and Head of Election Integrity Project at Judicial Watch, who was in the Justice Department during the Obama Administration, added: “We don’t know the extent of voter fraud activity. The Obama administration made this a political football at the same time the president was giving speeches saying there is no voter fraud.” To the contrary, Popper said, “A Pew Foundation study found 1.8 million deceased registrants on the rolls. Two hundred and twenty six counties in 42 states had more actual voters than registered voters.”

The fourth panelist was Jesse Richman, Political Science & Geography Professor at Old Dominion University, who has been frequently quoted in the press for his study of potential voter fraud. “Many instances of fraud don’t get prosecuted,” he said. “There are limited resources and there’s prosecutorial discretion. If a non-citizen decides to vote it’s difficult to detect. And it doesn’t take much illegal voting to change an outcome.”

This panel comes on the heels of President Trump’s announcement that he wants a national voter fraud investigation. From our perspective this would be the most important civil rights investigation in a generation. These are votes stolen from Americans voting lawfully. If we don’t have clean elections all these debates about policy are for naught.

We have 20 million plus aliens of age who could vote. The left says just a few are voting, Trump says 3.5 million. Obviously the number is somewhere in between. Federal officials could figure this out – probably within weeks.

Whatever the Trump administration does, however, we at Judicial Watch are going to be active – in terms of investigations, lawsuits, and education – on behalf of election integrity.

I encourage you to watch the entire hour-long panel discussion:

trump first solo press conference

President Trump speaks directly to the American people and the people love it!

President Trump held a press conference at the White House as polls show his approval rating has risen to 55%. After the presser the media goes ballistic, the people yawn.

Here are some notable policy comments by President Trump:

  • I’m here today to update the American people on the incredible progress that has been made in the last four weeks since my inauguration.
  • A new Rasmussen poll, in fact, because the people get it, much of the media doesn’t get it, they actually get it but they don’t write it, let’s put it that way, but a new Rasmussen poll came out a short while ago, and it has our approval rating at 55 percent and going up.
  • The stock market has hit record numbers, as you know, and there’s been a tremendous surge of optimism in the business world, which means something different than it used to. Now it means it’s good for jobs.
  • Plants and factories are already starting to move back into the United States, big league, Ford, General Motors.
  • As you know, our administration inherited many problems across government and across the economy. To be honest, I inherited a mess. A mess. At home, and abroad. A mess. Jobs are pouring out of the country. You see what’s going on with all of the companies leaving our country, going to Mexico and other places. Low pay, low wages.
  • Mass instability overseas, no matter where you look. The Middle East, a disaster. North Korea, we’ll take care of it, folks. We’re going to take care of it all. I just want to let you know. I inherited a mess.
  • Beginning on day one, our administration went to work to tackle these challenges. On foreign affairs, we’ve begun enormously productive talks with foreign leaders, much of which you’ve covered, to move forward to security, stability and peace in the most troubled regions of the world, which there are many.
  • We’ve had great conversations with the United Kingdom and meetings, Israel, Mexico, Japan, China and Canada. Really, really productive conversations. I would say far more productive than you would understand. We’ve even developed a new council with Canada to promote women’s business leaders and entrepreneurs.
  • Another mess I inherited. We have imposed new sanctions on the nation of Iran, who has totally taken advantage of our previous administration. And they are the world’s top sponsor of terrorism. And we’re not going to stop until that problem is properly solved, and it’s not now. It’s one of the worst agreements I’ve ever seen drawn by anybody.
  • I’ve ordered plans to begin for the massive rebuilding of the United States military.
  • At home, we have begun the monumental task of returning the government to the people to a scale not seen in many, many years. In each of these actions, I’m keeping my promises to the American people.
  • I’m here following through on what I pledged to do. That’s all I’m doing.
  • This administration is running like a fine-tuned machine.
  • We have withdrawn from the job killing disaster known as Trans-Pacific Partnership. We’re going to have trade deals but we’re going to have one-on-one deals, bilateral. One-on-one deals.
  • We directed the elimination of regulations that undermine manufacturing and called for expedited approval of the permits needed for America and American infrastructure, meaning plants, equipment, roads, bridges, factories.
  • We’ve imposed a hiring freeze on nonessential federal workers.
  • We’ve imposed a temporary moratorium and new federal regulations. We issued a game-changing new rule that says for each one new regulation, two old regulations must be eliminated.
  • We’ve stood up for the men and women of law enforcement, directing federal agencies to ensure they are protected from crimes of violence.
  • We’ve directed the creation of a task force for reducing violent crime in America, including the horrendous situation — take a look at Chicago and others — taking place right now in our inner cities.
  • We’ve ordered the Department of Homeland Security and Justice to coordinate on a plan to destroy criminal cartels coming into the United States with drugs.
  • We’ve undertaken the most substantial border security measures in a generation to keep our nation and our tax dollars safe and are now in the process of beginning to build a promised wall on the southern border.
  • We’ve begun a nationwide effort to remove criminal aliens, gang members, drug dealers, and others who pose a threat to public safety. We are saving American lives every single day.
  • And we’ve even created a new office in Homeland Security dedicated to the forgotten American victims of illegal immigrant violence, which there are many.
  • We’ve taken decisive action to keep radical Islamic terrorists out of our country.
  • I got elected on defending our country. I keep my campaign promises, and our citizens will be very happy when they see the result, they already are.
  • We’re issuing a new executive action next week that will comprehensively protect our country, so we’ll be going along the one path and hopefully winning that. At the same time we will be issuing a new and very comprehensive order to protect our people and that’ll be done sometime next week in the beginning or middle at the latest part.
  • We’ve also taken steps to begin construction of the Keystone pipeline and Dakota Access pipelines, thousands and thousands of jobs, and put new buy American measures in place to require American steel for American pipelines.
  • To drain the swamp of corruption in Washington D.C., I’ve started by imposing a five-year lobbying ban on White House officials, and a lifetime ban on lobbying for a foreign government.
  • We’ve begun preparing to repeal and replace Obamacare.
  • I have kept my promise to the American people by nominating a justice of the United States Supreme Court, Judge Neil Gorsuch, from my list of 20, and who will be a true defender of our laws and our constitution.

President Trump’s comments about the press and media:

  • I’m making this presentation directly to the American people with the media present, which, it’s an honor to have you this morning because many of our nation’s reporters and folks will not tell you the truth and will not treat the wonderful people of our country with the respect that they deserve.
  • Unfortunately, much of the media in Washington, D.C., along with New York, Los Angeles, in particular, speaks not for the people, but for the special interests and for those profiting off a very, very obviously broken system.
  • The press has become so dishonest that if we don’t talk about it, we are doing a tremendous disservice to the American people. Tremendous disservice. We have to talk about it. We have to find out what’s going on because the press, honestly, is out of control. The level of dishonesty is out of control.

VIDEO: Watching the Birth of the ‘Israeli State Solution’

I watched with great interest the press conference between President Donald J. Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin “Bibi” Netanyahu (below). This press conference will go down in history as the one that ends one chapter in U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East and opens a new chapter that is about “a much bigger deal, a much more important deal” as President Trump stated.

It was clear to me that President Trump and Prime Minister Netanyahu are thinking outside the box.

 in an article titled “Restored: 5 Ways Trump, Netanyahu Improved U.S. – Israel Relations” listed the following key policy changes involving national security and the Middle East:

  1. The two-state solution is no longer the only option.
  2. The U.S. opposes new settlements, but accepts existing ones.
  3. The U.S. and Israel will aim at a regional peace involving Arab states.
  4. Both countries are now focused on “radical Islamic terror.”
  5. The relationships between the U.S. and Israeli governments are warm, and personal.

Read Pollack’s full analysis here.

I want to focus on the first point made by Pollak that the two-state solution is “no longer the only option.”

Let me quote from the full transcript of what these two world leaders said:

  • PRESIDENT TRUMP:  So I’m looking at two-state and one-state, and I like the one that both parties like.  (Laughter.)  I’m very happy with the one that both parties like.  I can live with either one. I thought for a while the two-state looked like it may be the easier of the two.  But honestly, if Bibi and if the Palestinians — if Israel and the Palestinians are happy, I’m happy with the one they like the best.
  • PRIME MINISTER NETANYAHU:  But rather than deal with labels [two-state solution], I want to deal with substance.  It’s something I’ve hoped to do for years in a world that’s absolutely fixated on labels and not on substance.  So here’s the substance:  There are two prerequisites for peace that I laid out two years — several years ago, and they haven’t changed.
    First, the Palestinians must recognize the Jewish state.  They have to stop calling for Israel’s destruction.  They have to stop educating their people for Israel’s destruction. Second, in any peace agreement, Israel must retain the overriding security control over the entire area west of the Jordan River… Jews are not foreign colonialists in Judea.

I suggest that the two-state solution is dead and gone. Here is the Israeli State solution.

onestate_010412_620px18

The Israeli State solution.

It is clear from the statements made that President Trump has turned U.S. – Israel relations and with it Middle East policy on its ear.

The new policy envisions a state of Israel that goes from the Mediterranean Sea to the Jordan river. The final nail in the coffin of any two-state solution was hammered home when President Trump was asked about moving the American embassy to Jerusalem. The President said, “As far as the embassy moving to Jerusalem, I’d love to see that happen.  We’re looking at it very, very strongly.  We’re looking at it with great care — great care, believe me.  And we’ll see what happens.  Okay?”

Visualizing the Flow of Asylum Seekers Into the Industrialized World

Based on data from the UN Refugee Agency, approximately 4.4 million asylum applications were submitted to 44 industrialized countries between 2013 and 2016. The map below shows the flow of these asylum seekers from their country of origin to the country in which they applied for asylum. Each point represents 500 asylum seekers.

Asylum seeker vs refugee

An asylum seeker is someone who has requested sanctuary from persecution in their home country. If the request is granted, the asylum seeker then becomes a refugee. In some cases, a host country may not have a formal process for evaluating asylum requests for all migrants crossing its border seeking refuge, in which case these displaced persons become “prima facie” refugees.

The map above displays the flow of asylum seekers into industrialized nations, which makes up only a small piece of the global refugee crisis. As of the end of 2015, there were about 16 million refugees globally, and a much larger number of displaced persons who did not qualify as refugees under the U.N. statue.

The countries hosting the largest number of refugees are all in the developing world. No industrialized nation features in the top 10.

Which countries host the largest refugee populations?

This map shows how the world’s 16 million refugees are distributed by country. To take a closer look, see the interactive map.

The seven largest refugee populations are in Turkey, Pakistan, Lebanon, Iran, Ethiopia, Jordan, and Kenya, respectively. Together they host more than half the world’s refugees.

VIDEO: Media fails to report that Islam is ‘Annihilating Art and Civilization’

When a jihadist attacked the Louvre Museum in Paris he intended to do more than kill people. He carried paint bombs. His intent was to destroy the finest art of Western civilization.

Why art? Art that involves animals or humans is forbidden in the Sharia [Islamic law].

Art is the work of Kafirs and is part of jahiliyya (civilization of ignorance). Islam annihilates a civilization piece by piece and leaves nothing of its native roots. Civilizational jihad destroys the very cultural history of every nation it comes into contact with.

We see the jihadist annihilation of museums and ancient architecture for the same reason. This civilizational war has been this way for 1400 years.

VIDEO: U.S. Senate shuts down Elizabeth Warren for visciously attacking Jeff Sessions

UPDATE: ValuBit.com news in their column “Elizabeth Warren ‘Silenced’ Again After Video Surfaces Of MLK’s Wife Thanking Senator Sessions” writes:

After being silenced last night on the Senate floor during her desperate racial stunt to read disparaging remarks about now-confirmed Attorney-General Jeff Sessions, we suspect Senator Elizabeth Warren is lost for words as video surfaces of Coretta Scott King thanking Senator Sessions at the launching of the Rosa Parks Library and Museum.

The Daily Signal published a video with commentary on the debate taking place at the U.S. Senate to confirm Senator Jeff Sessions to become the Attorney General of the United States. Senator Mitch McConnell shut Warren down for viciously attacking a fellow Senator.

Elizabeth Warren has become the face of the party of the unhinged, uncivil and increasingly irrelevant, a.k.a. Democrats.

The Daily Signal noted:

Hours after staging a 24-hour talkathon against Betsy DeVos’ nomination for education secretary, Senate Democrats were back at it Tuesday night. This time, Republicans had the last word.

As the Senate debated the nomination of Sen. Jeff Sessions for attorney general, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., delivered a blistering critique. She accused Sessions of trying to “chill the free exercise of the vote by black citizens.”

That’s when Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell stepped in to call out Warren for violating Senate Rule 19—impugning the motives and conduct of Sessions.

The Senate proceeded to vote, 49-43, prohibiting Warren from speaking throughout the remainder of the debate on Sessions.
