Report: Over 900,000 Christians Martyred For Their Faith In Last 10 Years

From the Christian Post:
Over 900,000 Christians have been martyred in the last 10 years, a Christian research firm affiliated with Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in Massachusetts estimates. 
Gordon-Conwell’s Center for the Study of Global Christianity recently released its annual report on the persecution of Christians, which found that as many as 90,000 Christians died for their faith in the last year. 
Although the study was released this month, the finding that 90,000 Christians — or one Christian every six minutes — were killed in 2016 was leaked by a prominent Italian sociologist named Massimo Introvigne during an interview with Vatican Radio in December and the report received much media attention before it was even released. 
Even though 90,000 Christian martyrs might seem like a lot in one year, the think tank maintains that 90,000 Christians have died each year on average from 2005 to 2015. 
“In the last week, several news organizations reported on the persecution of Christians around the world and cited our figure of 90,000 Christian martyrs in 2016,” the organization said in an email to supporters. 
“The Center for the Study of Global Christianity has done extensive research on Christian martyrdom, both historical and contemporary. We estimate that between 2005 and 2015 there were 900,000 Christian martyrs worldwide — an average of 90,000 per year.” 
It should be noted that 90,000 Christian martyrs per year is a very liberal estimate. In fact, the organization notes that only 30 percent of the 90,000 Christians were killed because of terrorism. 
Seventy-percent of the 90,000 Christians were actually killed in tribal conflicts in Africa, which raises the question of whether or not 70 percent of 90,000 Christians were actually killed over their faith or just victims of violent conflicts.

ACLU Official Mocks Elderly White People, Tells Them They Have ‘Five Years Left’

Rialto, California, held a regularly scheduled city council meeting last Tuesday after a city councilman apologized for planning an event to discuss the possibility of Rialto becoming a “sanctuary city.” 
Luis Nolasco, a community engagement and policy advocate for the ACLU of Southern California, stood up to speak at the city council meeting and attacked many of the white people present, saying they are not actual residents of Rialto. 
Nolasco said, “This is my town.” 
He said that the important part of the sanctuary city discussion is “who are the people we are talking about.” 
The ACLU official said that “the people in this room are not representative of Rialto. Sorry to break it, but growing up here white people were the minority.”
“The reality is that black and Latinos are the majority of the city, and that is representative of the city, and that’s going to continue to be the case for future generations,” Nolasco, 26, added. 
The city of Rialto is 72.4 percent Latino, according to a 2015 Census estimate.
“It’s kind of mean for me to say it but these people have probably like five years left,” Nolasco said while gesturing to the white attendees at the meeting. A video of the meeting shows that several of them were elderly.

Mr. Patrick died as I published this article.  This article is dedicated to his memory.

John K. Press

I love the opening lines of Brian Anse Patrick’s book, The Ten Commandments of Propaganda. Published by Arktos, the book immediately tells the reader they’ve already been propagandized via the author evoking the Biblical Ten Commandments. Effective propaganda, Patrick explains, draws upon collective cultural memory.  His book is full of platitudes we really need to hear if we’re to be successful culturists and end multiculturalism.


The Ten Commandment’s footnotes give the book an academic feel. But, this short book reads really well. Patrick says he moved academic points to the footnotes in order to make the book more user-friendly. And, his strategy of listing one propaganda commandment per chapter makes it easy to revisit the book, which increases its usability. Speaking of which, let’s move on to . . .

In An Epic Final Speech at Davos, Joe Biden Warns the Progressive World Order Is At Risk of Collapse

Good old Uncle Joe:
Vice President Joe Biden delivered an epic final speech Wednesday to the elites at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. 
The gist of his speech was simple: At a time of “uncertainty” we must double down on the values that made Western democracies great, and not allow the “liberal world order” to be torn apart by destructive forces. 
Biden went after Russian President Vladimir Putin by name, saying he is using “every tool” in his power to whittle away the European project, and undermine Western democracies. 
Biden accused Putin of wanting to “roll back decades of progress.” Biden said Russia used “cyber aggression” to meddle in the U.S. election, an assertion supported by 17 U.S. intelligence agencies. 
He also warned that we will see further interference from Russia in the future and said the “purpose is clear” — that Putin wants to see a “collapse of the international order.” 
“Simply put, Putin has a different vision of the future,” the vice president warned. At the outset of his speech, Biden implored the media to not hear his speech as a shot at President-elect Donald Trump, who takes office on Friday. 
And, while what Biden said applies broadly to leaders in Europe, as well as the United States, there is no mistaking that his comments were a rebuttal to Trump’s friendly statements about the Russian president.

The council is comprised of 55 members appointed by the president. Its primary task is to fund-raise for the nation’s Holocaust Museum and its various projects…. 
Rhodes, 40, is Jewish. He has worked with Obama since 2007.

HORROR ON PARIS STREETS: Mob with axes, swords and baseball bats terrorise neighbourhood

A GANG of up to 30 youths armed with axes, swords and baseball bats terrorised a southern Paris neighbourhood on Saturday night for “reasons that remain unclear,” French police said.
Eleven youths aged between 17 and 22 were arrested over the attacks and taken into custody. Their alleged accomplices, however, got away and are yet to be identified by police.
The masked attackers – who are said to have arrived by bus – ran amok in a residential area in Juvisy-sur-Orge, a tranquil suburb south of Paris, at around 8pm on Saturday.
But it took more than one hour for police to arrive at the scene, by which time the youths had smashed and vandalised more than 20 cars and broken down the door of a nearby apartment block.

DC officers cannot record inauguration demonstrators?

From PoliceOne:
WASHINGTON — Officers patrolling during the inauguration and days after will not be allowed to turn on their body cameras until they make an arrest. 
A law bans officers in D.C. from recording demonstrators unless the officer has to take action and make an arrest, according to WJLA. 
The ACLU said the camera shouldn’t be on because police shouldn’t be able to surveil first amendment activities. 
“Our concern is around the availability of body cameras, what is done with that data, who looks at that data and what that data’s used for,” ACLU Spokeswoman Monica Hopkins-Maxwell told the news station. 
While police won’t be allowed to film demonstrators, the ACLU is encouraging citizens to film police. Along with citizens watching the police, federal law enforcement will be monitoring DC cops as well, the news station reported.
Does this sound like a set-up?

Public Universities To Teach Students How To Resist ‘Trumpism’ Including ‘Islamophobia’


Slated for Wednesday, January 18, the teach-in, dubbed #J18, is taking place between the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday and Trump’s inauguration. The event’s planners say: 
“Let it be known that on #J18 and beyond, universities, colleges, and high schools refused to bear silent witness to the politics of hate and fear; that in these times, these places of teaching and learning not only served as a sanctuary for its students and workers but also stood up to proclaim the power of knowledge on the frontlines of social justice.” 
On January 18, the professors are calling upon their colleagues to “Teach, Organize, Resist,” and “affirm the role of critical thinking and academic knowledge in challenging Trumpism.” On that day, we intend to teach about the agendas and policies of the new administration, be it the proposed dismantling of economic and environmental regulations or the threatened rollback of the hard-won rights that form the fragile scaffolding of American democracy. 
On that day, we intend to organize against the proposed expansion of state violence targeting people of color, undocumented people, queer communities, women, Muslims, and many others. On that day, we intend to resist the institutionalization of ideologies of separation and subordination, including white supremacy, misogyny, homophobia, Islamophobia, and virulent nationalism.” 
In addition to UCLA, universities participating in the event to date include: American University, Washington, D.C.; University of California, Berkeley; University of Cincinnati; University of Dayton; University of Minnesota; New York University; Princeton University; Texas State University; University of Kentucky; Vanderbilt University; and University of Washington.

Why Trump Won: Minor Foreign Policy Case Study – Phillipines

The ‘proper’ way
The Philippines has filed a low-key diplomatic protest with China after a U.S. think tank reported that Beijing appears to have installed anti-aircraft and anti-missile weapons on its man-made islands in the strategically vital South China Sea, the country’s top diplomat said Monday. Foreign Secretary Perfecto Yasay said the diplomatic communication was issued after the report came out last month. The Center for Strategic and International Studies report said anti-aircraft guns and weapons systems designed to guard against missile attacks appear to have been placed on all seven of China’s newly created islands.
Yasay told CNN Philippines that Manila had responded, but did so quietly.”We have taken action on that, we have issued a note verbale,” he said, referring to a diplomatic communication that is issued in the third person and is not signed. It is considered less formal than a letter of protest.”I just want to assure the Filipino people that when we take action at engaging China in this dispute, we do not want to take such aggressive, provocative action that will not solve the problem,” he said. “We cannot engage China in a war.”
As we might guess, meanwhile in Beijing
Trump manner of engagement:
“We have rebuilt China, and yet they will go in the South China Sea and build a military fortress the likes of which perhaps the world has not seen,” Trump said. “Amazing, actually. They do that, and they do that at will because they have no respect for our president and they have no respect for our country.”
Rex Tillerson told his confirmation hearing before the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee that China’s building of islands and putting military assets on those islands was “akin to Russia’s taking Crimea” from Ukraine. Asked whether he supported a more aggressive posture toward China, he said: “We’re going to have to send China a clear signal that, first, the island-building stops and, second, your access to those islands also is not going to be allowed.”
In an interview with the Wall Street Journal published on Friday, Trump said the “One China” policy was up for negotiation. China’s foreign ministry, in response, said “One China” was the foundation of China-U.S. ties and was non-negotiable.
Trump broke with decades of precedent last month by taking a congratulatory telephone call from Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen, angering Beijing, which sees Taiwan as part of China.
The American people innately recognize that the ‘proper’ methods, the so-called ‘presidential’ appearance, have since Sept 1945 achieved VERY LITTLE for them in their lives.
Like the Democrats, busy forging an UNFORGIVABLE change, and precedent WHICH WILL BE REPEATED WHEN THE TIME COMES BY REPUBLICANS (I PROMISE YOU), in the body politic at the moment the nation should be as one for the peaceful civilian change of power, foreign leaders have NO IDEA WHAT THE FRONT DOOR IS GOING ON.
I have repeated the anecdote of US Grant at the Wilderness. I will do so again.
“Oh, I am heartily tired of hearing about what Lee is going to do. Some of you always seem to think he is suddenly going to turn a double somersault, and land in our rear and on both of our flanks at the same time. Go back to your command, and try to think what we are going to do ourselves, instead of what Lee is going to do.”
This is Trump. He will compel other nations to worry about WHAT HE IS GOING TO DO, what WE are going to do.
‘Sorry China, you want one China policy by the USA? You balance your trade to fair trade, and STOP island grabbing and island militarization where there is all that gas and oil below and nearby and claimed by 5 nations most of whom are OUR allies, AND (whispering to America) >>all that GP building those DF-21’s, J-20’s, J-31’s, 052D’s, 094a’s, and 054’s? FUGGETABOUTIT’.
Crude. Nervy. Somewhat scary. Uncomfortable.
Get used to it,
We are the disruptor.

IMF REPORT: U.S. Economic Growth Expected to Boom Due to Trump Policies

After a lackluster out-turn in 2016, economic activity is projected to pick up pace in 2017 and 2018… …This forecast is based on the assumption of a changing policy mix under a new administration in the United States and its global spillovers… …The projection for the United States is the one with the highest likelihood among a wide range of possible scenarios. It assumes a fiscal stimulus that leads growth to rise to 2.3 percent in 2017 and 2.5 percent in 2018...

AWESOME NEWS, If True: 50% Of Mexican Nationals Returning Home Are Staying There Because Of Trump

From Breitbart:
Fearing stiffer immigration enforcement in the coming months, approximately half of the Mexican nationals who had traveled through this city on their way to their hometowns claim they will not be returning to the United States, city officials said. 
In recent weeks, the Matamoros city government has been preparing logistical and security measures to accommodate not only the returning travelers, but also for a possible increase in deportations, said Matamoros Mayor Jesus “Chuchin” De La Garza. 
According to De La Garza, at least 50 percent of the Paisanos who have crossed through the three international bridges in Matamoros have reported to authorities that they will not be returning to the U.S. and plan on seeking jobs in Mexico. 
Known in Mexico as Paisanos, every year, groups of legal and illegal immigrants travel through this and other border cities during the holidays on their way to their hometowns. The name Paisano comes from a government program aimed at easing the customs and tax process that the Mexicans face when they travel home. 
In years past, customs officers, local police and other officials were known for demanding bribes and extorting the travelers. In preparation for the expected increase in the number of returning locals and deportees, De La Garza has been meeting with Mexico’s Regional Security Team and U.S. law enforcement. 
“We still do not know the impact that the arrival of the new U.S. administration will have in regards to the number of deportations, but we do have to be prepared in order to handle such events in an orderly fashion,” De La Garza said to Breitbart Texas. 
For years, the deportation of Mexican immigrants has caused problems due to the lack of job opportunities in border cities, leading many to join the ranks of the various drug cartels that operate throughout Mexico. 
According to Mexican authorities, many of the deported immigrants often come from U.S. prisons and jails who are sent back after completing a sentence for crimes in that country. The backgrounds of the deported migrants makes them an attractive recruitment option for Mexican cartels.

Noor Salman, Wife of Orlando Shooter, Arrested - Sources Say Obstruction of Justice Charges

I Coulda Sworn They Were Moderate Muslims

As we all suspected:
Noor Salman was taken into custody in California, where her family lives, but the case is filed in Florida, where her husband massacred 49 people at the Pulse nightclub in June. “I can confirm the arrest did occur,” Attorney General Loretta Lynch said on MSNBC. “This is a matter that we continue to take very seriously,” she said. 
“We said from the beginning we were going to look at every aspect of this case, every aspect of this shooters life — to determine not just why did he take these actions, but who else knew about them, was anyone else involved, is there any other accountability that needs to be had here in this case.” 
Details of the charges against Salman were not immediately made public, but law-enforcement sources said they are related to obstruction of justice.

Obama Admits He Made the Call to Abstain from Anti-Israel UN Resolution

It's really best he just admit it. Israel has the goods on him, and has promised to release the information to Trump as soon as he becomes President.
President Barack Obama told “60 Minutes” that he made the call for the U.S. to abstain from a vote on a U.N. Security councilresolution condemning Israeli settlements, allowing the resolution to pass, and that doing so didn’t fray relations between the two countries. 
The move caused a major fallout between the United States and Israel, a notion Obama demurred while speaking to Steve Kroft in an interview that aired Sunday. 
“I don’t think it caused a major rupture in relations between the United States and Israel. If you’re saying that [Israeli] Prime Minister [Benjamin] Netanyahu got fired up, he’s been fired up repeatedly during the course of my presidency, around the Iran deal and around our consistent objection to settlements. So that part of it wasn’t new,” Obama said in his final interview as president. 
“And despite all the noise and hullabaloo, military cooperation, intelligence cooperation, all of that has continued,” he said. 
“We have defended them consistently in every imaginable way. But I also believe that both for our national interests and Israel’s national interests that allowing an ongoing conflict between Israelis and Palestinians that could get worse and worse over time is a problem. And that settlements contribute. They’re not the sole reason for it, but they’re a contributing factor to the inability to solve that problem.”
Of course, he still hasn't admitted his role in the creation of the UN resolution in the first place.

But this admission is a step in that direction, so that when the info from Israel is released (as I am quite sure Trump will do), the whole thing won't seem quite as bad.

New Project Veritas Video Shows Leftist Groups Plotting An Chemical Attack on Trump Inaugural Ball

Video shot at Comet Ping Pong Pizza, for what it's worth.


The prior thread "Scotland: Provost of cathedral where Qur'an was read denounces "appeasement" of "those who are Islamophobic"...is an Episcopalian (or should that read Epis cop alien?)

Well the US Epsicopalian Church in DC is also up to shenanigans as it is hosting the #DISRUPTJ20 Decision Making Process and Consensus Building event today in the Sanctuary at St. Stephens, 1525 Newton St NW


St. Stephen’s Church is pleased to offer sleeping space on our floors to groups traveling to Washington, DC, for protests, conferences, service work, or other events. St. Stephen’s has offered space since the 1960s; tens of thousands of people have slept on our floors over the years, protesting various wars, demanding equal rights, witnessing for peace at military arms bazaars and at the Pentagon, protesting international structures that support inequalities, doing service work on alternative spring break trips, or attending conferences or learning about life in the inner city.

How does St. Stephens Episcopal Church get away with renting sleeping space on their floor, booked from 1/14 through the inauguration, and not be implicated in their activities, not to mention losing their non-profit status? An old hippie hostel dating back to the 1960s, they supposedly will not house terrorist types. What do they think this is?

Scotland: Provost of cathedral where Qur’an was read denounces “appeasement” of “those who are Islamophobic”

From Jihad Watch:
The head of the Scottish Episcopal Church says the Church is “deeply distressed” at the offence caused by the reading of a passage from the Koran in a Glasgow cathedral. 
The comments of the Church Primus, the Most Rev David Chillingworth, follow criticism that Islamic verses were read during an Epiphany service. 
In his blog, he also condemned the abuse received by St Mary’s Cathedral. 
The cathedral’s provost, the Very Rev Kelvin Holdsworth, said the reading was aimed at promoting understanding between the two faiths. In his sermon on Sunday, he told the congregation there had been a “storm of abuse” from “10,000 Christian voices” over the incident. 
He said he “cannot believe that moderate churches in the West should follow a policy of appeasement towards those who are Islamophobic and particularly not towards the recently invigorated far-right media.”.

I Never Liked Piers Morgan, But I Gotta Say, HE UNDERSTANDS TRUMP

I can't think of many in the American media who get Trump more than Piers Morgan. Amazing.

And, if you watched the whole video, you see that the final thing they discuss is the question, Is Trump a lover of Britain, how will he handle Brexit, and future trade deals?

And on cue:

Donald Trump says he ‘loves’ the UK and reveals he wants a bumper transatlantic trade deal to help make Brexit ‘a great thing’
In an interview with Michael Gove for The Times – the Sun’s sister newspaper — he revealed he was inviting Theresa May to visit him “right after” he gets into the White House. 
In an interview, the President-elect said: “I love the UK. “We’re gonna work very hard to get it (a trade deal) done quickly and done properly – good for both sides.” 
Mr Trump added: “I will be meeting [Mrs May]. She’s requesting a meeting and we’ll have a meeting right after I get into the White House and it’ll be, I think we’re gonna get something done very quickly.” 
He also predicted more countries will follow Britain by leaving the European Union – because of the migration crisis and Angela Merkel’s “catastrophic” decision to open Germany’s borders.

The Precedent of Accepting the Results of an American Election is DEAD – and the future of that beckons

Harry Reid has now, famously, used the nuke option in the senate to kill cloture on a debate with a simple majority vote, meaning no delay can be used to drag a bill or appointment to death. EXCEPT for SCOTUS appointments.
I think the senate now WILL ultimately use this for SCOTUS because Chucky Schumer had to open his fat trap to show how tough he was and declare the D’s ready to do a reverse Merritt Garland for FOUR TO EIGHT YEARS.
Now comes the real meat though.
Elected representatives (FROM THE COASTS WITH A VERY FEW EXCEPTIONS – and this list is now larger) have named Donald Trump as ILLEGITIMATE, and have refused to attend the inauguration because Trump is who he is, instead – PUBLICLY ORGANIZING FOR RESISTANCE to ….what? A better economy? More jobs? Secure borders? To ensure more illegal aliens? Or maybe it’s the manifest horrible things Trump has promised against LGBTQ folks (nothing, in fact he has declared the issue settled via SCOTUS, and will enforce the law), or because he has the locker room sense of a 9th grader and all wimmin’ on earth are endangered? Seriously? Or Trump hating black folks because the 1973 housing lawsuit proves he was a discriminatory landlord via redlining (i.e. a law instituted by FDR in the 1930’s to PROTECT the banking system from high risk mortgage lending, which after J Carter was elected – AFTER THIS SUIT – was  declared to be discrimination)?
So what is this resistance to and of?
The democrats ARE SIMPLY UNABLE TO STAND THE IDEA THE PEOPLE HAVE REJECTED THEM AT EVERY LEVEL, except in the few urban counties in the USA in which they completely dominate.
They probably are PARALYZED with fear someone like Trump is liable to do something which IMPROVES life in urban centers.
Imagine if Barry Goldwater had been alive and believed so fervently that Mr. Obama was born in Kenya, or Indonesia, or Canada that he had named Obama as illegitimate, and unable to serve, had begged the Joint Chiefs to find a way to WITHHOLD nuclear launch authority from him (that happened this week- HuffPo), and organized resistance to SUBVERT the process of converting the choices of the people in each state to electoral college votes, and OTHERS in the Congress, and 90% of the national media followed him, then promising total resistance, and using the second inauguration to promote violent and destructive demonstrations.
That’s what is happening and WHO is doing this in congress makes no difference.
Wait until, this precedent of resistance of this kind and degree, BEING NOW SET, this shoe is on the other foot, and folks from Zanesville, and Peoria, and Cheyenne demand their reps refuse any part in the ‘ILLEGITIMATE’ elected govt which is a more radical democratic party govt.
Elected under a Keith Ellison run DNC, and a Soros puppet like ideological toady tool is president for the express purposes of LEGITIMIZING the idea the people everywhere have the right to just come here and SHARE our to be normalized zero sum game of resources, to ensure globalization of HUGE business erodes national character, to ensure OPEN SOCIETY means something human and worldwide (as if). Does that sound like something which would provoke the kind of total and massive resistance Mr. Lewis and others are creating?
This total break with precedent AND THE NATIONAL INTEREST is being justified because Trump is so exceptional. He is not, YOUR ARROGANCE, Mr Lewis, your ARROGANCE IN JUDGING YOUR THOUGHTS ON THIS SUPERIOR TO THE PEOPLE is the exceptional item. Thanks for your work on civil rights. Thanks for making this a better USA – THEN. But your recent comments and thoughts mark you as at the end of a sad decline of you and other once fine organizations like the NAACP, and SPLC to a marker of something else … something legal here but not that many other places…


In lawsedition is overt conduct, such as speech and organization, that tends toward insurrection against the established order. Sedition often includes subversion of a constitution and incitement of discontent (or resistance) to lawful authority. Sedition may include any commotion, though not aimed at direct and open violence against the laws. Seditious words in writing are seditious libel. A seditionist is one who engages in or promotes the interests of sedition.

Your precedent of this has been noticed, and I promise you, you will see this again deployed against you as your example will be used to further DEGRADE the republic.


It’s effect threatens to be far more important and MORE LASTING than any righteous civil rights actions once in your balance
Think that warning is excessive?
Just watch
This needs to get tamped out

Donald Trump says Merkel made 'big mistake' on migrants

From the BBC:
US President-elect Donald Trump has said German Chancellor Angela Merkel made "one very catastrophic mistake" by admitting more than 1m migrants. 
He said Mrs Merkel was by far Europe's most important leader, and that the EU had become a vehicle for Germany. 
Mr Trump was giving details of his foreign policy goals in an interview with British and German newspapers. 
He told the Times and Bild his priority was to create fairer trade deals for the US and have strong borders. 
He said the US had to address its trade deficit with the rest of the world, particularly with China. 
The emphasis for his administration should be smart trade, rather than free trade, he said.

Austria’s Politcal Right Party Chief Calls For Law Banning ‘Political Islam’

Austrian Freedom Party leader (FPOe) Heinz-Christian Strache

I would call this a measured policy move:
He added that, otherwise, Austrians and Europeans “would come to an abrupt end.” 
He went on to say that the current cap on new arrivals introduced by the Austrian government last year that amounts to 37,500 asylum seekers per year does not actually change anything. 
He also criticized a proposal recently introduced by the center-right Austrian People’s Party (OVP), which involves the reduction of this cap by a half to 17,000 people per year. 
He denounced both measures as “laughable” and called for the “minus immigration policy,” which should involve not only a ban on all new arrivals but also an expulsion of all migrants and refugees, who entered Austria illegally or were involved in any crimes on its territory. 
“We need no cap and no halving of that cap – we need a zero immigration and in fact even negative immigration while all illegals and criminals [who are migrants] should be expelled from the country,” he said during the party meeting, as cited by the Austrian APA news agency. 
He also called for tougher measures against illegal migrants by saying that “those who try to enter [Austria] illegally, should be sent to a detention center.” 
He also said that such measures should be accompanied by an “efficient” law banning political Islam. 
He went on to stress that people who criticize the behavior of migrants “because it is misogynistic, anti-liberal and reflects a fascist worldview,” are not showing “hatred.” 
Those who find European democratic rules inappropriate “are free to return to their Muslim country,” Strache said, adding that Austria “has forced no one to come here.” 
“We do not want to leave the European Union, but we want a reform that would correct all its development failures,” he said, stressing that the “welcoming culture” demonstrated its inadequacy in the view of the terrorist attacks carried out in Europe over the past years. 
“It is not nationalism that people want, it is the nation state and partnership relations and cooperation” between European countries, he said, adding that “the nation state is not dead” as it is a “cultural achievement” and a “model of success” for Europe. 
Austria, which has a population of about 8.7 million people, received more than 130,000 claims for asylum from people coming from the Middle East and Northern Africa since the summer of 2015 and took in one of the greatest numbers of refugees per capita alongside with Sweden. Now about 600,000 Muslims, including those, who arrived during the refugee crisis, live in the Alpine country, accounting for about 7 percent of its population.

Tips For Hate Crime Hoaxers Looking for Their Heathcliff

From Ann Coulter:
In a country of more than 320 million people, everything must happen once. So it’s somewhat surprising that not one of the alleged post-election hate crimes committed by Trump supporters has turned out to be true. They are false in one of two ways: Either they aren’t “hate” or they aren’t true. 
This week, we’ll provide tips for selling a hate crime that didn’t happen. Hate Crime Hoaxer 
Tip No. 1: Don’t invent hate crimes that could form the opening of a Harlequin Romance. Liberal girls always seem to be imagining strong, rough, Heathcliff-type white men demanding that they disrobe or become “sex slaves.” (Oddly, Heathcliff keeps doing this in well-trafficked areas in the middle of the day with no witnesses.) 
The hijab hoaxer at the University of Michigan described her imaginary Trump-supporting pursuer as white, in his 20s or 30s, with an athletic build, unkempt and intoxicated. He demanded that she remove her hijab. (After a police investigation, she admitted she made it up.) 
The alleged hijab victim at University of New Mexico, Leena Aggad (right) said her hijab was ripped off by “a really buff guy wearing a Trump shirt.” (The attack was serious enough for her to tell the media about it, but not serious enough to report it to campus security, much less the police.) 
A 28-year-old black woman, Kara Stevens (right) claimed three Trump-supporting white men in their 30s approached her in a Safeway parking lot in Hillsboro, Oregon, mentioned Donald Trump—then threatened to turn her into their “sex slave”! (Investigation suspended with no video, no witnesses and no evidence.) 
With a little more imagination, these stories could become the new “Fifty Shades of Grey.” 
Hate Crime Hoaxer Tip No. 2: Don’t accuse white men of throwing things at you—even if it allows you to issue inspirational quotes, suitable for framing, like: “It’s going to take more than a brick to break me!” 
An African-American woman, Eleesha Long, claimed that, the day after the election, three white men in Trump shirts threw rocks at her on the campus of Bowling Green State University. 
The Safeway “sex slave,” Kara Stevens, claimed the Trump-supporters threw a brick at her. (She, of the inspirational quote.) 
We’ve seen lots of rock-, bottle- and brick-throwing recently—in Ferguson, Baltimore, Charlotte, Oakland, Chicago—in fact, pretty much whenever disaffected urban youth encounter the police. 
We’ve seen Mexicans throw eggs at Trump supporters and rocks at the police. (See, e.g., videos here here and, here.) 
We’ve seen Brazilians throw rocks at journalists at the Olympic Games in Rio, Palestinians throw rocks at the military in Israel, and Muslim “refugees” throw rocks at the police in Europe. 
But throwing things at people never really caught on with white men over the age of 6. (NOTE: Sen. John McCain’s bellicose sidekick is a notable exception—CNS News: Sen. Lindsey Graham, “I’m Ready to Throw a Rock” at Russia.) Even sad, directionless, white (alleged) “men” at Occupy Wall Street protests—i.e., the molecular opposite of a Trump supporter—don’t seem to have thrown rocks at cops. 
The rock-throwing was done by their minority backup. 
Again, we’re a country of 320 million people, so it must have happened sometime, but the 21st-century white American male is the most pacific—and least rock-throwing—Y-chromosomed being ever to walk the Earth. 
Black women accusing white men of throwing rocks at them are thinking of what they would do, not what their athletically built, white male, Trump-supporting Lotharios would do.

Media Reporting Trump's First Foreign Trip To Be "Summit" With Putin, Trump's Team Says Story Totally False

From the London Times:
Donald Trump is planning to hold a summit with Vladimir Putin within weeks of becoming president — emulating Ronald Reagan’s Cold War deal-making in Reykjavik with Mikhail Gorbachev. 
Trump and his team have told British officials that their first foreign trip will be a meeting with the Russian leader, with the Icelandic capital in pole position to host the superpower talks as it did three decades ago. 
In a bid to reset western relations with the Kremlin, Trump will begin work on a deal limiting nuclear weapons.
The London Times has a subheadline which reads:

Implying that Trump does not understand America's priorities, it's "Special Relationship" with Britain.

This is an absolutely absurd claim, coming on the heels of the Obama Presidency, during which President Obama time and again insulted Britain, and elevated Third World "allies".

Fuck the media. They are lying again.

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer calls out the Media, declaring this story to be false:

And writer, Mike Cernovich points out something very important:
