Bannon, Salvini, And A Powerful Catholic Cardinal Are Gunning For Pope Francis
Post Date: 2018-06-21 09:18:34 by hondo68
As the populist wave continues to rise throughout Europe - most recently in Italy where refugees are now being turned away, prominent conservative Catholics are coming together to take on Pope Francis. At the center of the intra-faith efforts are Steve Bannon, along with Italy's new interior minister Matteo Salvini and American Cardinal Raymond Burke - all of whom are staunchly opposed to liberal open-border policies advocated by the Pope. Francis is a harsh critic of secure borders, and an advocate of unchecked migration - calling President Trump "un-Christian" for wanting to build his wall (which would be around 30-feet, the same height as the wall surrounding the ...
WATCH VIDEO: Muslim calls flight attendant a ‘fucking slut*’ and a ‘bitch for serving him what he thinks is pork – “She should have respected my religion”
Post Date: 2018-06-20 11:17:19 by IbJensen
Watch the video. Look at the passengers arrogance, belligerence, and sense of entitlement. She should have respected me and my religion. We see these demands for respect again and again from Muslims who have actually done nothing to deserve respect. The demands for respect come from Islams inculcation of a supremacist mentality in the believers. They believe that theyre entitled to submission and obeisance from non-Muslims, particularly since the Quran tells Muslims that they are the best of peoples (3:110). British Muslim passenger rants at air stewardess and calls her a fucking slut and a bitch for serving him a ...
What Trump Gets Right About Europe
Post Date: 2018-06-20 10:15:20 by Tooconservative
HAMBURG, Germany Most people can agree that international affairs should not be conducted by tweet especially when the tweeter in question is Donald Trump. Among other reasons, its easy to dismiss the presidents mercurial rage and flagrant insults as little more than temper tantrums. But thats a mistake. Mr. Trumps anger at Americas allies embodies, however unpleasantly, a not unreasonable point of view, and one that the rest of the world ignores at its peril: The global world order is unbalanced and inequitable. And unless something is done to correct it soon, it will collapse, with or without the presidents tweets. While the West ...
Why America’s Trade War With China Will Be Absolutely Crippling For The U.S. Economy
Post Date: 2018-06-19 09:58:11 by Deckard
Can the global financial system handle a full-blown trade war between the two largest economies on the entire planet? We have never seen anything like this happen in the modern age, and this is creating a tremendous amount of uncertainty for the financial markets. Yes, something had to be done, and I have been writing about this for years. China has been stealing our intellectual property, manipulating currency rates and slapping high tariffs on American goods. We simply could not allow China to continue to take advantage of us, but now we are so dependent on the Chinese that a trade war with them is going to inevitably produce a great deal of pain. We are all ...
James Hansen wishes he wasn't so right about global warming
Post Date: 2018-06-18 09:50:22 by no gnu taxes
NEW YORK (AP) James Hansen wishes he was wrong. He wasn't. NASA's top climate scientist in 1988, Hansen warned the world on a record hot June day 30 years ago that global warming was here and worsening. In a scientific study that came out a couple months later, he even forecast how warm it would get, depending on emissions of heat-trapping gases. The hotter world that Hansen envisioned in 1988 has pretty much come true so far, more or less. Three decades later, most climate scientists interviewed rave about the accuracy of Hansen's predictions given the technology of the time. Hansen won't say, "I told you so." "I don't want to be right in that ...
'GET A GRIP' Moped crime epidemic, weekly stabbings and housing failures: Tory report reveals the true cost of London’s two years under Sadiq Khan
Post Date: 2018-06-12 09:38:33 by IbJensen
The Mayor's half term report doesn't look good in a new analysis - as London's crime wave continues to take lives SADIQ Khan's two years in office has cost Londoners dearly with broken promises, a spiralling crime wave and higher taxes, a new report claims. The 'Cost of Khan' dossier, compiled by leader of the Tories in the London Assembly, says Mr Khan isn't delivering for the capital. Its author, Gareth Bacon AM, said the Mayor had spent too long pumping out his self-congratulatory propaganda, and urged him to "get a grip" during the second half of his four year term in office. He told The Sun: "Its been two years since London voted in ...
The Trump Doctrine: "We're America, Bitch"
Post Date: 2018-06-12 04:16:01 by Tooconservative
If there is one field where the liberal news media gets all paranoid and totally out of control, its foreign policy in the age of Trump. The president is going to start a nuclear war because he tweets. Did anyone really believe that who wasnt an addict of MSNBC (or is it MSDNC)? Hes not a madman. In fact, President Trump was given much credit by South Korea for brining North Korea to the negotiating table. Discussions about denuclearization and a peace treaty to end the Korean War were also discussed. Kim Jong-un, the murderous dictator of North Korea, also ventured onto South Korean soil to meet President Moon Jae-in, a first since the end of the Korean War. No nuclear ...
Asylum Seeker’s Rape/Murder [of 14yo Jewish girl] Roils Germany
Post Date: 2018-06-11 14:03:33 by Tooconservative
Chancellor Angela Merkels policy of admitting into Germany hundreds of thousands of purported refugeesout of a misplaced sense of guilt, apparentlyhas been a disaster. The policy is appropriately unpopular, even more so following the latest outrage, the rape and murder of a 14 year old girl by an Iraqi whose plea for refugee status was turned down. The New York Times reports, with surprising objectivity: It was a gruesome murder: A 14-year-old girl was raped and strangled, her body buried under brushwood in a secluded area near the railway tracks near her hometown in western Germany. But the fact that the chief suspect is an Iraqi asylum seeker has turned a ...
Netanyahu Makes Extraordinary Offer To Iranian People [water]
Post Date: 2018-06-11 12:37:50 by Tooconservative
On Sunday, in an extraordinary message to the people of Iran, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed the severe water shortages in Iran and not only offered to help the Iranian people with words, but actions. He announced the creation of a Farsi webite that will show how Iranians can recycle their wastewater and Iranian farmers can save their crops and feed their families. As The New York Times reported in January, at one point Iran suffered a drought for 14 consecutive years. The Times noted that after the 1979 revolution that brought the Iranian mullahs to power, the government urged farmers to plant wheat throughout the country, giving farmers inexpensive electricity and ...
Italy turns away ship carrying over 600 migrants
Post Date: 2018-06-11 11:09:03 by Tooconservative
With a new government in place in Italy this month, it didnt take long for some new policies to come into effect. This is particularly true when it comes to questions about immigration and the ongoing migrant crisis. The new ruling coalition ran on a platform of being Euroskeptics who wanted to set their own immigration and border control policies rather than deferring to the EU. Now, in one of the first tests of that principle, Italy has denied a Doctors Without Borders ship carrying hundreds of Libyan migrants permission to dock at their ports. The usual suspects are up in arms, but the Italians want other countries to start sharing this burden. (CNN) A ship carrying more than 600 ...
Erdogan Predicts ‘War Between the Cross and Crescent’ over Austria Mosque Closures
Post Date: 2018-06-11 09:49:38 by IbJensen
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan attacked Austrias impending closure of mosques and consequent expulsion of Turkish-funded imams, saying the move is anti-Islamic while promising a response. These measures taken by the Austrian prime minister are, I fear, leading the world towards a war between the cross and the crescent, Erdogan said in a speech in Istanbul covered by AFP. Austrias populist government made the announcement on Friday morning at a press conference as part of the governing coalitions campaign against radical Islamic ideology and the influence of countries like Turkey in the Austrian Islamic community, Kronen Zeitung reports. Media reports ...
Austrian Chancellor Takes Dramatic Steps To Curb Violence, Closing Mosques And Deporting Radical Preachers
Post Date: 2018-06-10 15:58:52 by Tooconservative
Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz announced over the weekend that the country is undertaking dramatic measures to curb the possibility of Islamic violence within its borders, closing a handful of what the government believes are "radical" mosques and deporting Imams who preach violence. The Daily Mail reports that Kurz, who leads a largely conservative government, has been working on a plan to handle a sharp increase in violence that the Austrians believe is the result of increased migration. They're concerned that immigrants are being radicalized in mosques that preach Islamic Jihad and encourage violence against the western nations in which they reside. To that end, the ...
WHY IS CARDINAL PAROLIN ATTENDING A BILDERBERG GROUP MEETING? The gathering in Turin will raise his international profile still further
Post Date: 2018-06-10 08:02:55 by IbJensen
The Bilderberg Group is meeting in Turin this week, and Cardinal Pietro Parolin will be present. Cardinal Parolin is the Vaticans Secretary of State, arguably the most senior official in the Vatican and the nearest thing the Holy See has to a prime minister. But the cardinals presence is certainly worthy of comment, especially as he has not been invited before and will be the only religious figure present. The Church is deeply committed to dialogue, but, as often happens, has difficulty in finding the right partners for dialogue, particularly with the sort of people who will be well represented at Bilderberg. One hopes that His Eminence, in the various meetings and on their ...
Trump Turns Tables on G-7 Allies With Free-Trade ‘Proclamation’
Post Date: 2018-06-09 19:28:32 by Justified
President Donald Trump proposed the complete elimination of all barriers to international trade at a Group of Seven summit, a move that turns the tables on allies who accuse the U.S. of wielding protectionist policies. No tariffs, no barriers, thats the way it should be, and no subsidies, Trump said during a 30-minute press conference on the sidelines of the meeting in La Malbaie, Quebec. "I did suggest it and people were -- I guess theyre going to go back to the drawing board and check it out." White House Economic Adviser Larry Kudlow, who was invited by Trump to speak from the same podium, described the comments as Trumps "free trade ...
What Nation Just Built An "Unprecedented" Spy Radar Base In Cuba?
Post Date: 2018-06-09 18:39:53 by hondo68
According to a new surveillance report from The Diplomat, exclusive satellite imagery from March 2017 to May 2018 reveals a newly expanded signals intelligence military facility near Bejucal, Cuba. The report focuses on a massive radome sitting on top of an elevated concrete mounting structure. From satellite imagery, the structure looks like a giant golf ball, but it is actually a protective dome housing a super sophisticated radar antenna inside. As mentioned by The Diplomat, this radome is the first of its kind among the various spy antennas at Bejucal, which have been used to intercept electronic communications, ballistic missile monitoring, and tracking of satellites from ...

Austria to close 7 mosques, expel imams in crackdown
Post Date: 2018-06-08 06:57:14 by IbJensen
BERLIN Austria's government said Friday that it is closing seven mosques and plans to expel imams in a crackdown on "political Islam" and foreign financing of religious groups. Chancellor Sebastian Kurz said the government is shutting a hardline Turkish nationalist mosque in Vienna and dissolving a group called the Arab Religious Community that runs six mosques. The actions by the government are based on a 2015 law that, among other things, prevents religious communities from getting funding from abroad. Interior Minister Herbert Kickl said the residence permits of around 40 imams employed by ATIB, a group that oversees Turkish mosques in Austria, are being reviewed ...

Trump: Trade War With Canada Justified Because Brits Burned the White House in 1814
Post Date: 2018-06-07 05:03:32 by Deckard
I mean, sure, that makes as much sense as any other reason.During a phone call with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau last weekend, President Donald Trump reportedly justified his decision to impose tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum by invoking...the burning of the White House by British troops during the War of 1812. At least, that's what CNN is reporting this afternoon. Here's how they put it, citing information from "sources familiar with the call: "Trudeau pressed Trump on how he could justify the tariffs as a 'national security' issue. In response, Trump quipped to Trudeau, 'Didn't you guys burn down the White House?'" That is, ...
The Trump Effect: Boeing Will Terminate Selling Aircraft To Iran
Post Date: 2018-06-06 19:31:43 by Tooconservative
On Wednesday, as a result of President Trumps decision last month to pull the United States out of the disastrous nuclear deal, Boeing announced it will not deliver aircraft to Iran. A Boeing spokesman stated, "We have not delivered any aircraft to Iran, and given we no longer have a license to sell to Iran at this time, we will not be delivering any aircraft. We did not factor the Iran orders into our order backlog either." Boeing had already delayed the delivery dates on the Iran planes; during the Obama Administration, Boeing obtained U.S. Treasury licenses to begin conducting business. In December 2016, Boeing announced it would sell 80 aircraft valued at $16.6 ...

Clapper: The U.S. Meddled In Foreign Elections And Conducted Regime Change In The "Best Interests Of The People"
Post Date: 2018-06-04 12:30:38 by Deckard
Former head of US Intelligence James Clapper just admitted that the United States was simply looking out for citizens of various countries "when we tried to manipulate or influence elections or even overturned governments," a statement directly at odds with the moral high ground claimed by President Obama and other US officials on the topic of Russian election meddling. In an interview with Bloomberg's Tobin Harshaw published Saturday, Clapper - who is promoting his new book "Facts and Fears," said "I guess the way I think about that is that through our history, when we tried to manipulate or influence elections or even overturned governments, it was ...
