The election is being stolen right before our eyes

By Michael Nadler 

Thanks to the efforts of Democrats, safeguards against vote fraud are being gutted.  John Fund lists a number of ways we are being set up for fraud on NRO.  My favorite items in this basket of deplorable practices are:
But federal agencies refuse — in direct violation of federal law — to provide citizenship data to state election officials who attempt to verify citizenship status. Kansas and Arizona have put in place new commonsense proof-of-citizenship requirements for registration to prevent illegal voting, but they have been fought tooth and nail by Obama’s Justice Department.
"Then James Alcorn, one of McAuliffe’s two Democratic appointees on the Virginia Board of Elections, proposed that rules be changed so that people who left the citizenship question unanswered on the voter-registration form would still be allowed to register. "
So now not only is it prohibited to require identification to vote, but you're not allowed to require the voter to even claim citizenship, never mind using any tools to verify or purge voter rolls of non citizens.  The Democrats have made such an issue of Russia possibly influencing our elections, while actively working to corrupt the process right here at home.
There is so much ammunition for Trump (and Republicans in general), if only he (and they) would know how to use it.  It can easily be tied into the campaign issue of appointments to Supreme Court and the federal judiciary.

Clinton Names Mother of the Migrant Crisis Merkel As Favourite World Leader

U.S. Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has named German Chancellor Angela Merkel as her favourite world leader, choosing specifically to praise her record on the migrant crisis — despite her policies on opening Europe’s borders now providing a source of immense regret for her party and Germany.

The comments were made during a question and answer session on board Mrs. Clinton’s campaign aeroplane in Chicago yesterday, when a member of the press asked what the presidential candidate’s favourite world leader is. Initially leaving her answer quite open, remarking: “Look, I like a lot of the world leaders”, Mrs. Clinton then settled on Germany’s imperiled Chancellor Angela Merkel.
She told members of the press: “One of my favorites is Angela Merkel because I think she’s been an extraordinary, strong leader during difficult times in Europe, which has obvious implications for the rest of the world and, most particularly, our country”, reports Politico.
Turning episodes in Merkel’s career which are among the most damaging to her reputation into positives, the would-be president continued: “Her leadership and steadiness on the Euro crisis and her bravery in the face of the refugee crisis is something that I am impressed by.
“I’ve known her for a long time, she and I have known each other back to the 1990s, I’ve spent a lot of time with her. And I hope I’ll have the opportunity to work with her in the future.”
Clinton’s specific highlighting of Merkel’s handling of the migrant crisis — a major political and social upheaval across Europe for which she can claim more responsibility for than perhaps any other world leader — may cause concern, given Clinton’s own position on mass migration.
A promise to welcome Syrian refugees to the United States made headlines earlier this year when she vowed to increase the number of Syrian migrants admitted by 550 per cent. The propensity for Mrs. Clinton to go big on immigration to the United States and her similarities to Angela Merkel were noted by Breitbart London editor in chief Raheem Kassam in January when he told radio host Sean Hannity: “[Merkel] brought in 1.5 million – [Hillary would] take 20 million in heart beat.
“This is what you need to be concerned about… If Germany seems like a long way away, it’s really not. If it’s happening in Western Europe today, it’s happening in America tomorrow.”
Considered the most powerful woman in Europe and Time person of the year, Angela Merkel enjoyed an unassailable position in German politics, presiding over a grand coalition and maintaining some of Europe’s strongest poll ratings for a national leader. Yet the migrant crisis has significantly damaged her standing, with Merkel’s centre-right Christian Democratic Party slipping in the polls and the insurgent, anti-mass migration Alternative For Germany surging in recent elections.
The migrant crisis has had a knock-on effect on broader European politics, with concern about mass migration helping to push the United Kingdom out of the European Union in this year’s referendum, and previous European project stalwarts like Hungary and Poland to the point of open rebellion against Brussels in order to prevent the forced relocation of so-called refugees to their nations.
Responding to the same question yesterday, Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump also selected Angela Merkel — despite having regularly bashed her over the course of his campaign. Praising her skill as a world leader, he qualified his remarks by criticising her over the migrant crisis, saying he was “very disappointed” in her performance.

Mr. Trump called Merkel’s decision to welcome millions of migrants to the European Union “a very tragic mistake”.

Man Hit By Tram During Mass Migrant Brawl

During a mass brawl between migrants from Chechnya and Turkey in the Austrian capital a passerby was pushed into the path of an oncoming tram. The victim, a Serbian man, was struck by a tram when one of the brawlers pushed him onto the tracks, reports Austrian paper Kronen Zeitung.
The Serbian sustained severe injuries with his legs being directly hit by the oncoming tram at the intersection of Knöllgasse and Quellenstraße in Vienna’s Favoriten district. The Favoriten district is well known for its high population of migrants from Turkey, Chechnya, and the Balkan states and is a low-income area.
The fight between the two groups of migrants was said to involve at least twenty men who attacked each other at the street corner. One Chechen attacker is also said to have been wielding a knife during the brawl.
When the police arrived the migrants immediately fled the scene leaving the Serbian national bloody and injured next to the tram that had hit him. The victim was immediately rushed to hospital for emergency surgery.
At least one of the other participants in the mass brawl was also injured, and found complaining of severe neck pain by the side of the tram tracks by police.
Though the reason for the brawl is unclear, it has been claimed the Chechen men had told the Turkish men to be quiet while both groups were at an Internet cafe.
This is not the first incident where migrants have come to blows in the city. Earlier this year a fight erupted at the Prater park when over 50 Afghan youths attacked each other, leading to several people being injured. Police who responded to the incident were also attacked.
In March an Afghan migrant gang attacked a group of Chechens. The brawl involved over 50 men and led to several of the Chechens being hospitalised with knife wounds.
Neighbouring Germany has also seen a rise in mass street fights between migrants, but also more recently between migrants and locals. In the town of Bautzen, a large group of drunk migrants fought with local Germans, the incident casting further doubt in the minds of Germans over the mass migration policies of Chancellor Angela Merkel.

France: 'The Jungle' Migrant Camp -- "Plan will proliferate a multitude of mini-Calais throughout the country."

French President François Hollande has vowed "definitively, entirely and rapidly" to dismantle "The Jungle," a squalid migrant camp in the northern port town of Calais, by the end of this year.
Hollande made the announcement during a September 26 visit to Calais — but not to the camp itself — amid growing unease over France's escalating migrant crisis, which has become a central issue in the country's presidential campaign.
The French government plans to relocate the migrants at the camp to so-called reception centers in other parts of the country. But it remains unclear how the government will prevent migrants from returning to Calais.
Sceptics say the plan to demolish "The Jungle" is a publicity stunt that will temporarily displace the migrants but will not resolve the underlying problem — that French officials refuse either to deport illegal migrants or else to secure the country's borders to prevent illegal migrants from entering France in the first place.
The decision to demolish the camp came just days after construction work began on a wall in Calais, a major transport hub on the edge of the English Channel, to prevent migrants at the camp from stowing away on cars, trucks, ferries and trains bound for Britain.
In recent months, people-smugglers armed with knives, bats and tire irons have forced truck drivers to stop so that migrants can board their vehicles. The Deputy Mayor of Calais, Philippe Mignonet, has described the main route to the port as a "no-go area" between midnight and 6am.
"The Jungle" — the name "jungle" comes from "dzhangal," the Pashto word for forest — now houses around 10,000 migrants from Africa, Asia and the Middle East who are trying to reach Britain. Migrants at the camp are from Sudan (45%), Afghanistan (30%), Pakistan (7%), Eritrea (6%) and Syria (1%), according to aid agencies. The migrants at the camp are mostly young men and boys, including some 800 unaccompanied minors, who are seeking jobs in Britain's underground economy.
Migrants have been gathering in Calais in large numbers ever since the Channel Tunnel linking France and Britain opened in May 1994, and the Schengen Agreement, which abolished border controls between France and most of its neighbors (but not the UK), entered into force in March 1995.
In 1999, the French government asked the Red Cross to build a migrant "reception center" in Sangatte to accommodate a growing number of migrants on the streets of Calais and surrounding areas. The Sangatte camp, which was housed in a giant warehouse situated about a half mile from the entrance to the Channel Tunnel, had a capacity of 600 people.
Far from resolving the migrant problem in Calais, the Sangatte facility served as a magnet, quickly drawing thousands more people to the area. Within months, some 2,000 migrants were living in the camp in increasingly cramped conditions. Many of those staying at Sangatte tried to jump onto slow-moving trains at the entrance to the Channel Tunnel, or hide inside trucks crossing to Britain on ferries.
At the time, French authorities reported a massive increase in the number of arrests in or around the Channel Tunnel. In 1999, 8,000 people were arrested in Calais for immigration offenses. By 2001, that number had jumped ten-fold to 80,000 arrests. Eurotunnel, the company that manages and operates the Channel Tunnel, said that in 2001 alone, 54,000 people had "attacked" the terminal in Calais and 5,000 had gotten through. Many of those were living in Sangatte.
The Sangatte camp was closed in late 2002, after a series of riots between Afghan and Kurdish migrants. In all, some 67,000 migrants stayed at the facility during its three years in operation.
In February 2003, France and Britain signed the Treaty of Le Touquet, which allows for so-called juxtaposed controls, meaning that travelers between the two countries now clear immigration in the country of departure rather than upon arrival. In effect, the treaty pushed parts of the British border to France. By doing so, it exacerbated the migration bottleneck in Calais.
As part of the agreement to close Sangatte, Britain took in 1,200 migrants. Those who remained in France sheltered in at least a dozen different squats both inside and on the outskirts of Calais. These camps — Africa House, Fort Galloo, Leader Price/Sudanese Jungle or Tioxide Jungle — have been repeatedly raided or bulldozed by French police, only for other squats to crop up elsewhere.
Many of the migrants housed at Sangatte moved a few kilometers east to a disused industrial zone called The Dunes. Situated just steps from the Port of Calais, the area would become known as "The Jungle." Over the years, French authorities have repeatedly tried to demolish all or parts of the camp, only for it to reemerge time and time again, and always with more migrants.
On September 22, 2009, French police bulldozed "The Jungle" and rounded up hundreds of migrants hoping to stow away on trucks headed for Britain. A day later, Calais Mayor Natacha Bouchart said she had "spotted between fifteen and twenty new squats" nearby. She also reported that Afghan migrants were establishing makeshift camps at the Hoverport, a disused collection of buildings which closed in 2005 after the last hovercraft sailed from Dover to Calais.
September 12, 2014. Police in Calais warned that migrants were becoming increasingly violent in their quest to reach Britain. Gilles Debove, the Calais area delegate for the French police union, said tear gas was being used to stop "mass onslaughts" on vehicles about to cross the Channel:
"The other day, two to three hundred migrants tried to get into a lorry park and we fired tear gas to scatter them because there are too few of us to control situations like this any other way. We're also facing an increase in crimes by migrants who mug people, steal mobile phones and carry out sexual assaults."
September 10, 2015. French media reported that police were searching for an Islamic State jihadi who was hiding in "The Jungle" in the hope of reaching Britain to launch an attack there.
November 11, 2015. More than 250 French riot police were deployed to "The Jungle" after weeks of unrest. Local government official Fabienne Buccio said the rise in violence was due to the migrants' frustration at being prevented from reaching Britain.
January 19, 2016. French authorities leveled one-third of "The Jungle" to create a 100-meter "buffer zone" between the camp and an adjacent highway that leads to the ferry port.
February 7, 2016. The migrant crisis spread to other parts of France due to an increased police presence in Calais. Migrant camps sprouted up in the nearby ports of Dunkirk, Le Havre, Dieppe and Belgium's Zeebrugge, as migrants seek new ways to cross the English Channel to Britain.
February 29, 2016. After a court in Lille approved a plan by the French government to evict 1,000 migrants from "The Jungle," demolition teams began dismantling the southern part of the camp. The government tried to relocate the migrants to official accommodation inside converted shipping containers in the northern part of the camp. But most refused the offer, fearing they would be forced to claim asylum in France. "Going to Britain is what people here want," Afghan migrant Hayat Sirat said. "So destroying part of the jungle is not the solution."
March 7, 2016. Migrants evicted from "The Jungle" moved to a new camp in Grande-Synthe near the northern port of Dunkirk, just up the coast from Calais. Critics said the new camp risks becoming a "new Sangatte," referring to the Red Cross center in Calais that was closed in 2002.
May 31, 2016. Migrants evicted from Calais moved to Paris and established a massive squatter camp at the Jardins d'Eole, a public park near the Gare du Nord station, from where high-speed Eurostar trains travel to and arrive from London. The area, which is so dangerous that the government has classified it as a no-go zone (Zone de sécurité prioritaires, ZSP), has become a magnet for human traffickers who charge migrants thousands of euros for fake travel documents, for passage to London.
August 11, 2016. In an interview with Le Figaro, a French counter-terrorism officer warned that Islamic State jihadis were hiding in "The Jungle." He said: "What is happening in The Jungle is truly mind boggling. Our officers are rarely able to penetrate the heart of the camp. It is impossible to know if a jihadi from Belgium, for example, is hiding in the camp. This camp is a blind spot for national security."
September 5, 2016. Hundreds of French truck drivers, businessmen and farmers blocked off the main route in and out of Calais, in an attempt to pressure the French government to close The Jungle. The blockage brought to a standstill the route used by trucks from all over Europe to reach Calais and Britain.
September 12. A document leaked to Le Figaro revealed the government's plan, dated September 1, to relocate 12,000 migrants from Calais to other parts of France. The migrants would be relocated to around 60 so-called Reception and Orientation Centers (centres d'accueil et d'orientation, CAO), each with a capacity of between 100 and 300 migrants.
September 13, 2016. The President of the Alpes-Maritimes region, Eric Ciotti, criticized the government's "irresponsible" plan to relocate migrants in Calais to other parts of France. He said the plan would "proliferate a multitude of small Calais, genuine areas of lawlessness that exacerbate lasting tensions throughout the country." He added:
"This plan reflects the resignation of the government in the face of massive illegal immigration. It weakens national cohesion under a false pretext of humanity which hides a dangerous ideology that denies any distinction between foreigners who seek asylum, who France should decently receive, and those who are economic migrants, whom we can no longer tolerate, and who should be returned to their countries of origin.
"The only solution is to deport, without delay, all illegal immigrants who do not intend to remain on our territory, and to place asylum seekers in centers dedicated to the study of their cases."
September 14, 2016. The President of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, Laurent Wauquiez, expressed anger at the government's "diktat" to relocate 1,800 migrants from Calais to his region. He said: "This is madness and it is not a matter of solidarity. The problem of Calais is not solved by multiplying Calais throughout France. We expect the government to solve the problem of Calais, not move it to other parts of the country."
September 16, 2016. Steeve Briois, the Mayor of Hénin-Beaumont and Vice President of the National Front criticized the government's plan to relocate migrants from "The Jungle" to the rest of the country. He said:
"This crazy policy would consequently multiply mini-Calais on the entire national territory, without consulting the people and local elected officials. This forced policy of the Socialist government is simply unacceptable; it seriously threatens public order and the safety of our citizens."
September 20, 2016. Construction work began on a wall to prevent migrants at the camp from stowing away on cars, trucks, ferries and trains bound for Britain. Dubbed "The Great Wall of Calais," the concrete barrier — one kilometer (half a mile) long and four meters (13 feet) high on both sides of the two-lane highway approaching the harbor — will pass within a few hundred meters of "The Jungle."
September 21, 2016. A whistleblower reported that volunteer aid workers at "The Jungle" were forging sexual relationships with migrants, including children. "I have heard of volunteers having sex with multiple partners in one day, only to carry on in the same vein the following day," he wrote. "And I know also, that I'm only hearing a small part of a wider scale of abuse." He added that the majority of cases in question involved female volunteers and male migrants. "Female volunteers having sex enforces the view (that many have) that volunteers are here for sex," he wrote.
September 28. Calais Mayor Natacha Bouchart expressed skepticism about President Hollande's pledge to close "The Jungle." In an interview with Europe 1, she said: "This dismantling will be very complicated. I am skeptical about the commitment of François Hollande that there will be no migrant camp in the territory of Calais. I do not know how he will do it."

More Forgotten White Victims of Black Violence: What are their loved ones thinking of “white privilege”?

As BLM agitators and their leftist apologists in D.C. and the media engage in and excuse black mob violence over alleged “racism,” I can’t help but to think of the invisible white prey whose lives have been destroyed by black predators.  I can’t help but to wonder what may be going on in the heads of whites who have had their loved ones taken from them by black criminals as they are incessantly told that blacks are victims and whites victimizers.
What are Eve Carson’s parents thinking as their President and his wife lecture them about the travails of being black in America?
Eve Carson was a 22 year-old student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  She was an honors student and the student body president.  From the time Eve was in high school, she had always been impassioned about community service, making the world better.
But on March 5, 2008, her dreams would be extinguished as two thugs, Demario James Atwater and Laurence Alvin Lovette, Jr. shot Eve multiple times.  Yet it was the shotgun blast to the head that ended Eve’s life.  Her killers were captured—but not before they were seen on surveillance trying to use Eve’s ATM card.
What are Jennifer Moore’s parents thinking as Hillary Clinton assures them that all whites are “biased?”
Jennifer was an 18 year-old from New Jersey.  In July of 2006, she was kidnapped, raped, and murdered by Draymond Coleman, a 35 year-old man with a lengthy criminal record. Police reported that Coleman beat and strangled his victim before stuffing her body into a duffel bag.
Before disposing of Jennifer’s body, he attempted to remove his DNA evidence by cutting her fingernails and scrubbing her body with alcohol.
What do Kristin Huggins’ parents think when Attorney General Eric Holder describes them as belonging to a “nation of cowards?”
Kristin was an aspiring artist who had just graduated from Temple University in 1992 when she was commissioned to paint a mural in my hometown of Trenton, New Jersey.  On a busy weekday morning, as she was proceeding to park her Toyota in the lot behind the building where she’d be painting, Kristen was met by Ambrose Harris.  Harris was a career criminal who had spent all but two years of the previous 20 or so years in prison.
Harris carjacked Kristen, for he needed a car in order for he and his accomplice, Gloria Dunn, to rob the luncheonette that was located a few blocks away.  After stuffing Kristen into her tiny trunk, Harris drove to a secluded area where he sodomized his victim—even as this virgin pleaded for mercy.  Dunn later testified that Harris responded by calling Kristen a “bitch” and telling her to “shut up.”
Kristen continued pleading as she trembled and cried.  Harris shot her twice in the face and head.  He buried her in a shallow grave.
Later, as he was cruising around the city in Kristen’s car, he boasted to acquaintances about having “offed” some “white bitch.” Unfortunately for Harris, he couldn’t figure out how to use Kristen’s ATM card. He did, however, hand over her car to some fellow thugs who were later caught driving around town.
Harris also gave them her Blockbuster video card.
In court, Harris spat on the floor and made obscene gestures and smiles toward the parents of Kristen Huggins.
Though Gloria Dunn would eventually turn against Harris, she first led the police to Kristen’s decaying remains by lying to them.  Dunn, you see, had a sister who styled herself a psychic.  The two of them went to the police and claimed to have had a premonition as to Kristen’s location.
It was only after Dunn and her sister inquired about the reward money that police realized Dunn’s involvement in the crime.
In response to a recent article of mine on the inter-racial violence that dare not speak its name, some commenters scolded me for failing to mention what some now call “the Knoxville Horror.” Though I have written about this in the past, given its lack of national media attention, it would be worth noting it again (and again and again).
In 2007, in Knoxville, Tennessee, Channon Christian and her boyfriend Christopher Newsom, both in their early 20’s, were carjacked, abducted, and taken to the rental property of their five black kidnappers.  Chris was bound, gagged, blindfolded and sodomized with an instrument of some sort as well as by a person.  Next, he was shot multiple times in the head, neck, and back.  Finally, his body was set on fire, wrapped, and disposed of alongside railroad tracks.
Channon was tortured over a span of hours.  The medical examiner reported that she was raped repeatedly, suffering trauma to her vagina, rectum, and mouth.  While she was still alive, her assailants poured bleach down her throat and scrubbed her body with it in order to eliminate traces of their DNA.
Three days after Channon and Chris met the scum that would end their young lives, police found Channon’s body stuffed in a garbage bag in a bin. She spent her remaining moments on Earth suffocating.   
What are the parents of Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom thinking as blacks (and whites) howl over the “white privilege” under which blacks allegedly live?
Another black-on-white atrocity that the Obamas, Hillary Clinton, and every other “anti-racist” in the national media apparently missed is “the Wichita Massacre.”  In 2000, two brothers, Reginald and Jonathan Carr, upon arriving in town, embarked upon a week-long crime spree in Wichita, Kansas. During this time, they robbed one man, Andrew Schreiber, a 23 year-old assistant baseball coach, and shot to death a woman, Ann Walenta, a cellist and librarian in her 50’s. 
The Wichita Massacre, though, refers to the event that capped off the brothers’ week.
On December 14, the Carrs set upon three men and two women in their early to middle 20’s—Brad Heyka, Heather Muller, Aaron Sander, Jason Befort, and a woman now referred to as “Holly G”—as the unsuspecting victims slept in their home. Over a span of hours, the vermin beat, robbed, and sexually tormented their prey: the women were made to perform sexual acts upon one another, and the men were forced to have sex with their female friends. When one of the men couldn’t get an erection, the Carrs pistol whipped him.
The Carr brothers also took turns raping the women.
Near the end of the night, in freezing cold temperatures, the Carrs drove their victims to a snowy field, forced them to kneel on the ground and, in spite of pleas to spare their lives, shot each execution-style in the backs of their heads.  They then drove over their bodies in the pick-up truck that they stole from them. 
Four of the five died. Miraculously, “Holly G” survived. Though she had nothing on but a sweater and had endured unimaginable brutality, this brave soul walked nearly a mile for help. She testified against the Carrs and put them away for the rest of their wretched existence.
What do Holly and the parents, siblings, and relatives of the Carrs’ victims think when they are castigated for lacking mindfulness regarding their “white privilege?”

Austria: Muslim screaming “Allahu akbar” tries to run down pedestrians, officials investigating motive

How long is this absurdity going to continue? Any official in Vienna who is trying to figure out this jihadi’s motive should be fired, but won’t be, because the people in charge are just as willfully ignorant and blinkered.
You want motive? Here it is. This is a war. A jihad. It is global. It is in Vienna. The Islamic State issued this call in September 2014:
So O muwahhid, do not let this battle pass you by wherever you may be. You must strike the soldiers, patrons, and troops of the tawaghit. Strike their police, security, and intelligence members, as well as their treacherous agents. Destroy their beds. Embitter their lives for them and busy them with themselves. If you can kill a disbelieving American or European — especially the spiteful and filthy French — or an Australian, or a Canadian, or any other disbeliever from the disbelievers waging war, including the citizens of the countries that entered into a coalition against the Islamic State, then rely upon Allah, and kill him in any manner or way however it may be….If you are not able to find an IED or a bullet, then single out the disbelieving American, Frenchman, or any of their allies. Smash his head with a rock, or slaughter him with a knife, or run him over with your car, or throw him down from a high place, or choke him, or poison him….
“Driver shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ tried to run over pedestrians in Vienna – media citing police,” RT, September 29, 2016:
Police detained a 21-year old man in Vienna after he deliberately tried to run over pedestrians while shouting “Allahu Akbar” out of his car. No one has been injured and officials are now investigating the motivation behind the man’s behavior.
The incident happened at around 11:00am local time in the district of Favoriten on Thursday.
“He aimed and drove directly at the passers-by,” Vienna police spokesperson Thomas Keiblinger said in an interview with Radio Wien as cited by national public proadcaster
“According to the statements of the eyewitnesses the 21-year-old shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ out of the opened window of his car,” Keiblinger added.
No one was injured in the attack, however one of the pedestrians had to jump from the crossing to save his life, WIEN.ORF says, citing eyewitnesses.
According to the Austrian media the driver is Vienna resident with a Turkish background. The man was detained by law enforcement officials shortly after the incident.
Authorities are now investigating whether the man might have had religious or political motives. According to police the 21-year-old has not yet made any statements….

Non-Citizen Muslim Mall Terrorist Illegally Voted 3 Times

But remember, Voter ID is racist. It discriminates against illegal voters.
But first a step back. We're talking about the Turkish Muslim mall terrorist in Washington, not the Somali Muslim mall shooter in Minnesota. We're getting so much Muslim terror these days that it takes work to keep it all straight.
The Cascade Mall shooting suspect, Arcan Cetin, may face an additional investigation related to his voting record and citizenship status.
Federal sources confirm to KING 5 that Cetin was not a U.S. citizen, meaning legally he cannot vote. However, state records show Cetin registered to vote in 2014 and participated in three election cycles, including the May presidential primary.
Just the sort of fellow we want deciding the next president.

While voters must attest to citizenship upon registering online or registering to vote at the Department of Licensing Office, Washington state doesn't require proof of citizenship. Therefore elections officials say the state's elections system operates, more or less, under an honor system.
An honor system. Of course. Actually verifying citizenship would be discriminatory. It would, in Obama's words, not be who we are. And who we are, apparently, is a bunch of suckers who let Muslim terrorists illegally vote.
"We don’t have a provision in state law that allows us either county elections officials or the Secretary of State's office to verify someone’s citizenship," explained Secretary of State Kim Wyman. "So, we’re in this place where we want to make sure we’re maintaining people’s confidence in the elections and the integrity of the process, but also that we’re giving this individual, like we would any voter, his due process."
Actual due process would involve verifying the right to vote. But that would be bad for Democrats.

Newly Arrived Syrian Migrant Molested Woman, Headbutted Police At Notting Hill Carnival

A Syrian “refugee” is in court after molesting a woman and attacking a police officer at this year’s Notting Hill Carnival — crimes committed only shortly after arriving in the United Kingdom. Westminster Magistrate’s court heard how 23-year-old Mohammed Al-Youssfi — a freshly arrived immigrant claiming to be a refugee — committed an alleged sex assault against a reveller at the annual carnival, and headbutted the arresting officer.
The prosecutor told the court a group of three women — including one carrying a baby — were stalked by the Syrian male as they walked away from the carnival. When they stood aside to let him pass them by on the street, he grabbed one of the women.
Speaking to the court, prosecutor Edward Aydin laid out the events as they occurred: “‘He grabs the lady there, the complainant, who is 46.
“She’s wearing a jumpsuit and he grabs her in a bear hug, then grabs her breasts. He’s wearing a white t-shirt and pink shorts. Al-Youssfi then pressed up against her bottom”.
After police officers were called to the scene, the Syrian migrant then allegedly headbutted a police officer. The case will come before Hammersmith Magistrates’ Court on the 5th of October.
Among the most numerous of so-called refugees who have flooded Europe over the past two years, Syrians are frequently finding their way into national newspapers for negative reasons — often quite soon after their arrival in a new host country. In another UK case, four Syrians were seen in court this week for allegedly sexually assaulting two 14-year-old girls in Newcastle.
The men, aged 20, 18, and 16 are accused of having attacked the girls in a city park — just weeks after one of them had arrived in the UK for the first time.
Breitbart London reported last week on a Syrian migrant in Germany who was adjusting to Western life very poorly — and reacted to his wife’s desire to enjoy Western-style freedom by throwing his three young children out of an upper story window before beating her with a frying pan. The man has been charged with three counts of attempted murder, and one of grievous bodily harm.
European festivals appear to be a significant draw for newly arrived migrants, who apparently take advantage of the high concentrations of young, inebriated women. Victims as young as 12 have been recorded at Swedish music festivals, with one reporting sex attacks by migrant males doubling.

Austria: Migrant Influx Will See Welfare Spending Leap 35 Per Cent

The wave of newcomers who entered Austria during the migrant crisis will cause social benefits spending to soar by 35 per cent, a report has revealed. The latest research shows that the majority of people receiving welfare in Austria never progress to permanent jobs. With particularly bad employment prospects for migrants, local authorities say the system should be reformed after last year’s influx.
The study by the Institute of Economic Research found that two thirds of people on welfare had depended on it for more than 13 months. Forty-five per cent of the welfare recipients who made the jump into work ended up back on benefits just two to three months later.
Commissioned by the city of Vienna, the report discovered that just nine per cent of the group made it into sustainable employment. As a result of receiving 90,000 asylum applications last year Austria, with a population of just eight and a half million, is set to increase social welfare spending by 35 per cent from its 2015 figure.
The research also noted that the prospects of employment for migrants are “particularly unfavourable”. Responding to the study Sonja Wehsely, the Vienna councillor for Health and Social Affairs, suggested reforms be made to the welfare system.
She said: “One can ask the question of what integration services must be adopted in order to receive the full guaranteed income. For the special situation with the [guaranteed income] of the refugees, new answers must be found.”
Krone recently reported a whistleblower’s account of how Austria’s welfare system is abused by migrants. Telling the paper he wants to “show how carelessly taxpayers’ money is handled”, the anonymous state employee revealed authorities rarely check whether benefits claimants have as many children as they say.
Outlining the large amounts of money being doled out, he pointed to how two unemployed migrants who claim to have 11 children are receiving €5,200 a month from the guaranteed income system.
Tensions in Austria over mass migration have run high since Chancellor Angela Merkel of neighbouring Germany last year invited millions of migrants to Europe.
In May, victory was snatched from populist, anti-mass migration candidate Norbert Hofer by just 0.6 per cent of the vote in the second round of Austria’s presidential election. The result was annulled, owing to “serious” postal vote fraud and so a rerun is to take place later this year.

France's New Sharia Police

The Council of State, the highest administrative court in France, decided that, to allow freedom of religion, the burkini must not be banned. At first the ruling looked sound: why should people not be able to wear what they wish when they wish? What is not visible, however, is that the harm comes later.
If someone still does not realize that the Islamic dress code is the Trojan horse of Islamist jihad, he will learn it fast.
A few recent incidents include:
September 7. In Guingamp, Brittany, a 17-year-old girl in shorts was beaten by a man who considered her outfit "too provocative". Although the attacker escaped, so that the police have no idea who he is or what his background might be, it is a taste of things to come.
September 7. In Toulon, southern France, two families were on a bicycle path when they were insulted by a gang of 10 "youths" (the French press uses "jeunes" [youths] in order not to say Arabs or Muslims). According to the local prosecutor, the "youths" shouted at the women, "whores!" and "strip naked!" When the women's husbands protested, the "youths" approached and a fight began. One of the husbands was found unconscious with multiple facial fractures.
At first, the motive of the attack was reported to be linked to the women wearing shorts, but in fact the women were not wearing shorts; they were wearing leggings.
July 19. In a resort in Garde-Colombe (Alps), a Moroccan man stabbed a woman and her three daughters, apparently because they were scantily dressed. One of the girls was seriously injured. The attacker, Mohamed, says that he was the "victim," because he claims the husband of the woman he stabbed scratched his own crotch in front of Mohamed's wife. According to the prosecutor, "the husband of the victim does not remember having made such a gesture."
July 7. A day-camp center in Reims, eastern France, circulated a note asking parents to avoid dressing their daughters in skirts because of the improper conduct of boys aged 10 to 12. A mother published the document on Twitter and commented on Facebook: "Obviously the idea did not occur to them that it is not for little girls to adapt their dress to big creeps, but for big creeps to get educated? "
In early June, 18-year-old Maude Vallet was threatened and spat on by a group of girls on a bus in Toulon because she was wearing shorts. She posted a photo of herself on Facebook with the caption, "Hello, I'm a slut." The posting was shared by more than 80,000 people. The attackers were Muslim girls, but Maude, according the "politically correct" who believe "thntdwi" (this has nothing to do with Islam), did not want to reveal their ethnic origin.
April 22. Nadia, a 16-year-old girl wearing a skirt, was severely beaten in Gennevilliers, a suburb of Paris, by three girls who were apparently Muslims.
These cases were dramatically publicized in all media, both official and social. Ironically, however, none of these incidents triggered the international attention and outrage that greeted a Burkini incident in Nice: A woman, apparently Muslim, was lying alone on a beach with no towel, no book, no parasol, no sunglasses, no husband (or brother, or father) to "protect" her, in the full glare of the midday sun near a police post -- with a photographer nearby ready and waiting to take pictures of her surrounded by four policemen. Who alerted them? The woman was issued a fine and possibly ordered to remove some of her clothes on the beach. Pictures of the incident were first published on August 23 by the Daily Mail and within minutes went viral, provoking international indignation against these seemingly racist French people discriminating against innocent Arab women. A week later, however, the Daily Mail suggested that this incident may well have been "staged" and the "pictures may be SET UP."
So the real question is: Are Islamists in France now using photos and videos, the way the Palestinians are doing against Israel: to film and disseminate fake and staged situations in order to provoke global indignation about supposedly poor Muslim "victims" -- especially women who are allegedly "discriminated against" in France?
If fabricated propaganda is allowed to persist, the defrauders will win a big war.
"In the war that Islamism is leading with determination against civilization, women are becoming a real issue," said Berenice Levet, author and professor of philosophy at the École Polytechnique to the daily Le Figaro.
She added:
"Rather than produce figures that say everything and nothing, I want it recognized once and for all that if today the roles of the genders are forced to regress in France, if domination and patriarchy are spreading in our country, this fact is related exclusively to our having imported Muslim values."
Ironically, at the same moment, France's Minister for Family, Children and Women's Rights, Laurence Rossignol, decided to spend public money on an ad campaign against "ordinary sexism" -- the supposed sexism by all French men against supposedly eternally victimized women. But there was not a word in this campaign about the possible victimization or potential outcome from the increasing proliferation of the burqa, veil or burkinis on Muslim women.
Commenting the ad campaign, Berenice Levet added:
"Laurence Rossignol should read Géraldine Smith's book, Rue Jean-Pierre Timbaud. Une vie de famille entre barbus et bobos ("Jean-Pierre Timbaud Street: The life of a family among bearded men [Islamists] and Bohemians"). She would learn -- among other things -- that in some stores or bakeries, men are served first, before women."
In this book, we can learn also that in the heart of Paris, a Muslim can insult a woman for drinking a cola in the street. But for many, including Rossignol, it seems the only enemy is the white Frenchman.
Two serious questions are at stake:
  • Are sharia police emerging in France?
  • Are French institutions sacrificing one freedom for another? Is the principle of equality between men and women being sacrificed to freedom of religion (Islam) to impose its diktats on French society?

Sharia Police

In France, no organized Islamist brigades patrol the streets (as in Germany or Britain) to fight alcohol consumption or to beat women for the way they are dressed. Yet gangs of "youths", again, both men and women, are increasingly doing just that in practice. For years now, "big brothers" have been obliging their mothers and sisters to wear a veil when they go out. And now that this job is done, they have begun to fight non-Muslim women who wear shorts and skirts -- no longer just in the sensitive Muslim enclaves, the "no-go zones" of the suburbs, where women no longer dare to wear skirts -- but now also in the heart of big cities.
More and more, the equivalent of "Islamist Virtue Police" try to impose those standards by violence. As Celine Pina, former regional councilor of Île-de-France, said in Le Figaro:
"In the last recorded attack [on the families in Toulon], with cries of "whores" and "strip naked", the young men were behaving as a "virtue police" that we had thought impossible here in our parts...
"It cannot be expressed more clearly: it is a command to modesty as a social norm and self-censorship as a behavioral norm... [it]... illustrates the rejection of the female body, seen as inherently impure and dirty...
"The question of the burkini, the proliferation of full veils, assaults against women in shorts and the beating of their companions, share the same logic. Making body of the woman a social and political issue, a marker of the progress of an ideology within society."
Laurent Bouvet, a professor of political science, noticed on his Facebook page that after the men were beaten in Toulon, so-called human rights organizations -- supposedly "professionals" of "anti-racism" -- remained silent in the debate.
The prosecutor of #Toulon said: "the fight was trigger by a women's dress code. These women were not wearing shorts... Sexism is undeniable. Where are the professionals of public indignation?"
Laurence Rossignol, Minister for Women's Rights, remained silent too. So a new rule has emerged in France: the more politicians and institutions do not want to criticize Islamists norms, the more violent the debate on social networks.

Equality between Men and Women or Freedom of (Islamic) Religion?

The silence of politicians and human rights organizations, when non-Muslim women are violently assaulted because they wear shorts that are not compatible with sharia -- as opposed to their thundering indignation against police for issuing a fine to a Muslim woman in a burkini -- signals an immensely important political and institutional move: A fundamental and constitutional principle, equality between men and women, is being sacrificed in the name of freedom of religion, thereby enabling one religion (Islam) to impose its diktats on the rest of society.
Studying the burkini case in Nice, Blandine Kriegel, philosopher and former président of Haut Conseil à l'intégration (High Council of Integration) published an analysis in which she establishes that in the burkini case, secularism or individual freedom were not even in danger in the first place. But "fundamentally an openly, the principle of equality between men and women" was surrendered:
In its remarkable ordinance, the Council of State refers to the jurisprudence of 1909 concerning the wearing of a cassock and does not pay attention to more recent laws voted on by sovereign people, prohibiting the veil at school (2004) and burqa in public places (2010).
The Council of state did not feel inspired either by the constitutional commitment towards women: "the law guarantees women, in all fields, same equal rights as men."
In the burkini affair, neither secularism nor individual freedom is at stake; but fundamentally and openly the principle of equality between men and women. ... This term "burkini" integrates intentionally the word "burqa"; this word does not express the desire to go swimming at the beach (nothing prohibits this); or the affirmation of a religious freedom (no mayor has ever prohibited the exercise of the Muslim religion); the word burkini express only the essential inequality of women.
Contrary to their husbands, who feel free to exhibit their nudity, some women must be covered from head to toe. Not only because they are impure, but mostly because of the legal status conferred to them: they are under the private law of the husband, the father or the community.
The Republic cannot accept something opposed to its laws and values. Inequality of women cannot be defended on the ground of religious freedom... of freedom of conscience. This issue was addressed three centuries ago by our European philosophers, who are founding fathers of the Republic. To those who were legitimating oppression, slavery and inequality were merely the expression of free will, explained the French philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau, inspiring our 1789 Declaration [of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen], and that freedom and equality are inalienable possessions.
The France's socialists government and administrative judges have apparently found it politically useful to make concessions to Islamists. Perhaps they originally agreed to burkinis not only because they may think that people should wear what they like, but also in the vain hope of calming down the permanent pressure that increasingly appears to be a cultural jihad. It may not even have occurred to them that they were potentially sacrificing the principle of equality of women.
Many people evidently still do not know that Islam is a religion and a political movement at war with the West -- and openly intent on subjugating the West. It must be responded to as such. The problem is, every time it is responded to as such, Muslim extremists run for cover under the claim of freedom of religion.
It is high time for French and European politicians to draw a hard line between where one person's right to worship as they see fit ends, and where society's right to freedom and security begins. And it is time to outlaw, not necessarily the burkini, but the very real problem of aggressive supremacism.
The root problem is incitement to violence. It is crucial for Western societies to start making a distinction between freedom of speech and incitement to violence, and to begin seriously penalizing attacks on innocents, as well as calls to attack innocents.

Censorship: Facebook Deleted 100,000 ‘Hate Posts, Insults’ in Just One Month

Facebook revealed that within the last month it deleted 100,000 posts by German users for containing “hate”, but Justice Minister Heiko Maas has blasted the figure as too low. At a conference in Berlin, Maas said that to be accountable, social networks must publish the number of posts contested by users. The Justice Minister’s remarks implied that complainants on social media are valid judges of what constitutes criminal speech, something usually only determined by a court.
The number of deleted posts “with hate comments” was revealed this week by Facebook’s European policy director, Richard Allan. Maas criticised Facebook’s decision not to specify the number of comments users contested in the period and said that its response to complaints should be consistent across the board.
“We should consider whether to make social networks commit to disclose how many complaints for illegal hate comments they got and how they handled them,” the Social Democratic Party (SPD) politician argued.
Maas said that “too little” punishable content on the internet is being deleted and that posts are deleted too slowly.
Asserting that the biggest problem is that complaints from users are not taken seriously, he said: “Of the criminal content reported by users, Twitter deleted just one per cent, YouTube only ten, and Facebook 46 per cent. This is too little.”
In Germany’s fight against “hate speech” on the internet, a task force of several Internet companies including Facebook agreed to delete posts which are punishable under German law within 24 hours., an organisation whose stated aim is to make the internet safer for children, assessed Facebook and Youtube’s performance in deleting the criminal content they reported.
YouTube removed 96 per cent of posts flagged by the organisation and 84 per cent of Facebook posts. “With both websites, half were deleted within 24 hours. This is much faster than in the spring,” Maas said.
Describing the situation as “improved, but far from good”, Maas said that the websites must be more consistent in their approach and so every complaint should be treated as equal to those put forward by
The Justice Minister’s speech did not take into account the fact that the nonprofit may be less likely to make vexatious complaints than millions of social media users.
Since Angela Merkel’s decision to allow more than 1.6 million migrants into Germany, the government has taken an incredibly hard line on free speech on the internet. Police have conducted raids on the homes of people suspected to have made posts critical of migrants.
With the government piling ever more pressure on social media companies to monitor and police comments at regular intervals, many Germans unhappy with Merkel’s policies and the subsequent wave of crime perpetrated by the newcomers have fled to Facebook’s Russian competitor, VK.

Knife Attack Migrant Shot Dead by Police

Police in Berlin shot dead an asylum seeker as he attempted to stab another migrant who he claimed had sexually abused his eight-year-old daughter. Police opened fire on the 29-year-old as he attempted to stab the other migrant, who had been arrested and handcuffed, at an asylum home on Tuesday night, reports Kronen Zeitung.
According to witnesses, the attacker yelled “You will not survive!” as he approached the 27-year-old migrant. The police had initially been called to the asylum home in the Berlin district of Moabit over the sexual abuse claims.
Witnesses had told police that the 27 year old had tried to approach the eight-year-old girl in a nearby park earlier that evening and sexually molested her. The girl has not reportedly suffered any injuries but is now under observation by social workers for signs of abuse.
Authorities claim that the attack occurred as the arrested man was being put into a police car and that several officers opened fire on the attacker. The knifeman suffered multiple gunshot wounds and was transported to a nearby hospital where he later died of his injuries.
Sexual molestation cases in asylum homes in Europe have increased in recent months. Women with underage daughters in camps have married them off, some of the girls as young as 13. The migrants claim that they marry off their daughters, often to much older men, in order to “protect them” from molestation and sexual abuse by other migrants.
There have also been allegations of systematic sexual abuse of migrant women in asylum centres. Earlier this year a former asylum home worker accused the Red Cross of covering up sexual assaults in one of their camps in the German city of Potsdam.
While most migrants plead innocence or “cultural misunderstandings” regarding sexual abuse, some are brazen about their actions.
In Sweden, the victim of a migrant sex criminal told her he specifically came to Sweden in order to “f*ck Swedish girls”. The migrant followed his victims attempting to sexually harass them, exposing himself, and even spat on them for not accepting his advances.
The man was later arrested by Swedish police for indecent exposure. Swedish police have repeatedly denied that migrant sex assaults are epidemic, and some even blame the migrants’ actions on “Nordic alcohol culture”.

Canada discovers its first Muslim refugee to become a cabinet member faked her background

By Sierra Rayne 

When Maryam Monsef was installed as Canada’s Minister of Democratic Institutions last November, she was the poster-child for refugee advocates.
President Barack Obama even spoke of her in favorable terms during his address to the Canadian House of Commons in June of this year:
The girl who fled Afghanistan by donkey and camel and jet plane and who remembers being greeted in this country by helping hands and the sound of robins singing, and today, she serves in this chamber and in the cabinet because Canada is her home.
All was fine and dandy in this little fairy tale until Robert Fife of the Globe and Mail committed journalism on September 22 by publishing an earth-shaking article that revealed how Monsef’s story about being born in Afghanistan was inaccurate. She was actually born in Iran:
Democratic Reform Minister Maryam Monsef, whom the Liberals have championed as this country’s first Afghan-born MP, says she was actually born and lived most of her early life in Iran before arriving with her mother and two younger sisters in Canada as refugees.
This revelation contradicts a key narrative that Ms. Monsef has built ever since she entered public life as a local politician in Peterborough, Ont., and when she ran for Parliament in the 2015 election.
As if that wasn’t bad enough, “[t]he Prime Minister’s Office said it had no idea that such a fundamental feature of Ms. Monsef’s life story was wrong. Officials scrambled to put together a detailed timeline of her family’s life in Iran and Afghanistan and the journey to Canada.”
Scramble to put together a detailed timeline of a key governmental Minister? What could possible go wrong? The national security failure on the part of the Trudeau government was breathtaking:
When asked why security vetting for cabinet posts didn’t uncover this error, an official said “we learned of this information about Maryam Monsef’s place of birth when it was brought to us recently by the The Globe and Mail.”
In other words, the government of Canada’s leadership only learned that their “Minister of Democratic Institutions” was born in the Islamofascist authoritarian nation of Iran through reporting in a national newspaper nearly one year after Monsef’s appointment.
According to Monsef, the blame for this misrepresentation lies entirely with her mother: “For years, Ms. Monsef’s mother allowed her daughter to misrepresent her birthplace as she built a political base in Peterborough, including a failed run for mayor in 2014 and her successful win in last year’s general election.”
Except that as the days goes by, more and more questions about Monsef’s past arise, both for her and her family. At present, no national security investigations appear to have been publicly released on her and her family’s past, meaning that it is apparently unverified – potentially even unverifiable.
According to Monsef, it was apparently Fife’s recent reporting in the Globe and Mail that alerted Monsef to her own erroneous life story:
“In the last few days, my neat and tidy refugee story has proven to be a bit more complicated than I originally thought. [The Globe’s] inquiry led me to have a conversation with my mom and I have since found, while I am still an Afghan citizen, I was born in a hospital in Iran,” she said.
But in a June interview with the same journalist, Monsef said the following:
In June, Robert Fife, then host of CTV’s Question Period, asked Monsef in an interview if she was born in Afghanistan. “I believe I was,” Monsef replied.
I believe I was? Monsef was not sure at that time? When did her uncertainty as to her real birthplace arise? More questions, and even fewer answers. Nothing more than uncritical softballs lobbed at her from Canada’s “journalism” establishment.
According to Monsef, “she now knows she was born at a hospital in Mashhad, Iran, in an area with a large Afghan population. She says her mother never told her she was born in Iran because she didn't think it was important.”
Didn’t think it was important? Misrepresenting the place of birth on an immigration application is a very serious offense and renders the application false and subject to a variety of remedies, including citizenship revocation and deportation. Monsef herself went so far as to justify her mother’s apparently false statements to immigration authorities, which in itself renders her unfit for holding a ministerial position.
Follow-up reporting by Fife and Michelle Zilio on September 22 made the situation even more problematic:
Ms. Monsef also corrected her birthday on her parliamentary website, which had been listed as November, 1985, to a year earlier.
Other than Fife’s original investigations, the only journalist who has been seriously probing Monsef’s past is Lt. Col. (ret.) Jonathan Halevi, co-founder and editor of CIJnews and a senior researcher of the Middle East and radical Islam at the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs. On September 23, Halevi published two screencaptures from the Parliament of Canada website showing how Monsef’s birthplace and birth date had recently changed from November 1985 in Herat, Afghanistan to November 7, 1984 in Iran.
But here is the problem. This suggests that up until very recently, Monsef believed – based on the story her mother apparently told her – that she was born in November 1985. And yet, in her “maiden speech” to the House of Commons on January 25, 2016, Monsef states the following at about 1m:15s in reference to herself: “Where the concept of a 31 year old parliamentarian and cabinet minister was unthinkable.”
Thirty-one years old as of January 25, 2016? If Monsef believed she was born in November 1985 as of this date, she would be only 30 years and two months old, not 31. Leaving aside the utterly bizarre situation where we have a Minister of Democratic Institutions in a major Western nation changing both her birthplace and birth date well after holding office, the information at hand suggests Monsef may not have believed she was born in November 1985 much earlier than media reports otherwise suggest. Monsef’s Wikipedia page history also shows birth date changes going back and forth over the past year, which seems most odd.
Next we have the questions about Monsef’s memories. According to the Globe and Mail,
The Prime Minister’s Office also provided a detailed timeline of Ms. Monsef’s life that showed she was born and lived until age 9 in Iran. The family moved to her mother’s family home in Herat, Afghanistan in 1993 and then fled the Taliban in 1996, ending up in Canada where they claimed refugee status.
In interviews, Monsef has claimed that she has “very warm memories of growing up as an Afghan in an Afghani community.”
Monsef’s own Twitter feed, and that of others discussing her, adds to the questions surrounding national security. A tweet about Monsef in March 2016 refers to Monsef “speaking about how her (attempted) trip to Iran in 2004 fuelled her passion.” In June 2014, Monsef retweeted that she was “talking about her recent trip to Iran.” On June 15, 2013, she indicated that “the Nikah ceremony is a great symbol of that whole matrimonial practice/process. Sharia fascinates me :).”
According to separate media reports in the National Post, the Toronto Sun, and even the Los Angeles Times, knowledge that Monsef was actually born in Iran was widespread in her electoral district for at least several years, claims that contradict Monsef’s original and revised narrative.
Monsef’s supporters in the media and academic circles are working feverishly to protect her from what is most needed: a full, public national security investigation conducted by the RCMP (Canada’s national police force) and the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, working in concert with security agencies in the USA, UK, and Israel as needed for additional resources and objectivity.
Aisha Ahmad, an assistant professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of Toronto and the director of the Islam and Politics Initiative at the Munk School of Global Affairs, wrote an article attempting to dismiss any concerns over Monsef’s apparently unverifiable and controversial history while claiming “there are a few ignorant people out there who are saying she's not a real Afghan,” also tweeting that she’s “[s]uper proud of @MaryamMonsef - got your back, girl.”
Got your back? Objective, critical investigations are needed, not a defense network that includes other academics incorrectly referring to those with concerns regarding Monsef’s background as an “unfortunate crop of Canadian birthers.”
The supposed “birther” claim, which seems to have originated from Toronto Star columnist Heather Mallick, that other academics are also spewing forth seems to conveniently overlook there is no “birther” controversy in this case: Monsef herself has admitted her original birthplace story was incorrect. At VICE Canada, serious questions about Monsef are potentially “just a racist witch hunt.”
On the contrary, if the backgrounds of elected officials cannot be verified, they should not be allowed to hold office. This applies to individuals born within the nation, as well as immigrants, and especially applies to immigrants with family ties back through problematic regimes, which includes not just Iran, but China, Russia, and so forth. Race is irrelevant, unless you are a race-baiter or members of the mainstream media attempting to dampen further investigations.
The Liberal Party of Canada will try to bury this scandal. The left-of-center New Democratic Party won’t touch it because it has long defended mass migration and its position on national security is non-existent (which helps explain why its public support is nearing single-digits). That leaves the Conservative Party of Canada, which has – unfortunately – been neutered on these types of issues after succumbing to the ceaseless bullying by liberals in the media and academia.
An objective and rigorous investigation is required. One that isn’t tainted by the “screamers” who have a hysterical fit every time basic questions of national security are raised. And once that investigation is complete, then Canada can decide what – if any – steps are needed. But sweeping an issue of this magnitude under the carpet is a non-starter.

Chinese Authorities Ban Muslims from Hotels

An interesting development likely undertaken for security reasons. China was just hit with a more serious terror attack and successful Islamic terrorism on its own soil against foreigners would be a major black eye for the secretive totalitarian state.
Authorities in China have reportedly instructed select hotels to reject guests from a handful of majority Muslim countries, according to Reuters.
While the country's foreign ministry denies that such a policy exists, workers at several budget hotels in Guangzhou said that they were ordered as far back as March to deny guests from Pakistan, Syria, Iraq, Turkey and Afghanistan.
One worker recently told the South China Morning Post that local authorities ordered the hotel to turn away guests from the aforementioned countries until Sept. 10.
"I'm not clear of the reason. We just can't take them," a hotel worker told Reuters over the telephone.

There may be good reason for the ban.
It's worth noting that the 11th Pan-Pearl River Delta Regional Cooperation and Development Forum was held in Guangzhou this past week. What's more, the G20 leaders' summit is scheduled to commence in Hangzhou Sept. 4.

Report: German Government Preparing Deutsche Bank Rescue Plan

The German government and financial authorities are preparing a rescue plan for Deutsche Bank in case the lender would be unable to raise capital itself to pay for costly litigation, German weekly Die Zeit reported. According to the draft plan, Deutsche Bank would be enabled to sell assets to other lenders at prices that would ease the strain on the lender and not put an additional burden on the bank, the paper said. In an extreme emergency, the German government would even offer to take a direct stake of 25 percent, the paper added without saying where it got the information. A Deutsche Bank spokesman referred to an interview Chief Executive John Cryan gave German daily Bild on Wednesday and denied the report. “At no point did I ask the chancellor for support. Neither did I suggest anything like that,” had told Cryan Bild in response to a different report that said he had asked German Chancellor Angela Merkel for her support with a $14 billion (10.77 billion pounds) U.S. demand to settle claims it mis-sold mortgage-backed securities. Such a request would be “out of the question for us,” Cryan said, adding that he could not understand how “anyone could claim that.” The German government is still hoping Deutsche Bank will not need state support and only scenarios for a potential rescue are being discussed so far, Die Zeit reported.
