Deliberate Destabilization: Terrorism Will Occupy Europe For Many, Many Years Due To Open Border Migration Policies Reader 10/08/2017 (Sun) 12:54:29 Id: 78871b [Preview] No. 2244 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), the world-leading security organisation has warned the spectre of terrorism will continue to haunt Europe for many years to come against an increase in radicalisation in European nations.

Speaking with Austrian foreign minister at the Vienna launch of the new OCSE report Friday, academic Peter Neumann said the threat of terror “will continue to occupy us for many, many years,” as he warned of the enduring danger of hardened militants returning to Europe from the Islamic State.

Stating the trend for the coming years suggested more low-tech, easy to execute but difficult to stop attacks, Neumann said while defeating the Islamic State was an important goal it wouldn’t immediately solve the security situation as other groups would rise to take its place.

The report itself also revealed startling new figures on the extent of terror attacks in the past year. Taking in all attacks by extremists across the 57 nations that make up the OCSE area — broadly Europe, North Africa, and Russia — the body stated there had been 1,000 extremist related deaths in 2016 and “destroyed billions of Euros worth of property and infrastructure”.

Making clear how widespread a problem such attacks had become, the report stated: “There is practically no country in the OSCE that has not been affected by violent extremism.”

Hitting out at the often half-hearted approach of European governments toward fighting the causes of terrorism, which can be hobbled by concerns of racism, cultural insensitivity, and political correctness the report called for “participating states to be genuine — and forceful.”

security specialists failed to save us from the attacks.
media failed to report what do these terrorists wants anyway?

extremists are extremists. i expect most refugees to be normal people.

instead of letting security and media turn our home into a fascist state, they should be fired for failing in their jobs.

its hard for me to imagine if there were empathic and trained people helping refugees that they would not notice the mentally unstable ones who probably need help. probably they have better ideas about who is extremist, i dont understand why i dont hear about collaboration of this kind.

They failed to save you because their job is to vet these people and not allow extremists into the country in the first place. So what do you expect to happen when your government allows a bunch of unvetted refugees into the country and then avoids any discussion or public concern about terrorist infiltration?

This is why Hungary, Poland and the Czech Republic are still free, safe, sovereign nations because their governments are doing their jobs as intended.

I have news for you: your own government censors the citizens who speak out about this and tries to deny this problem even exists half the time. They are in bed with George Soros (a former Nazi socialist who backstabbed his own people working with the SS!), just like much of the American government still is.

This George Soros guy needs to be convicted like all the other former Nazis and our governments should be refusing to allow his subversive NGOs to dictate or lobby this suicidal amnesty policy!

And another thing: the government doesn't care about your safety, all they they care about is more power and control over the population because Western governments have become corrupted thanks to extremists like Soros.

What got Trump elected was the utter arrogance, stupidity, corruption and utter contempt displayed during the previous administration(s). I would know too, I actually live in America and I keep track of what's really going on.

Let me fill you in to SOME of the reasons the American people were fed up with the typical establishment under Obama alone: 1) gun rights were routinely under attack, 2) IRS acted like thugs under Obama's watch, politically targeting innocent conservative groups deliberately (which is unethical and an abuse of authority) while ignoring huge crimes by elitists like literal tax evasion schemes, 3) land grabbing was rampant under Obama, so much so that there were huge standoffs taking place between ranchers and feds, the feds were confiscating more and more land from innocent ranchers, 4) Obama supported TPP and even his own supporters did not support TPP because it was unfair to America's workers, 5) Obama's administration allowed millions of illegals to pour into the country INCLUDING violent gangbangers, drug cartels, killers, rapists, actual terrorists, foreign spies, thugs and robbers. More than 5,000 Americans have been brutality killed because of this amnesty policy! Thousands of families have lost their loved ones to thugs imported into this country! 6) "Operation Fast and Furious" (read about that scandle, very criminal!) 7) Under Obama the VA were stealing millions from the budget and allowing American veterans to die untreated! Horrible treason and corruption gone amok! 8) Obama's handling in Syria was just terrible: funding Islamic terrorists to undermine Assad? Using (exposed!) false flag operations in Syria to blame Assad for the killing of civilians (which US & Britain actually committed!) Sick! 9) Obamacare was and still is a DISASTER! Premiums have gone up over 300% in some states, where more Americans are now UNINSURED because of Obamacare. "Affordable care" my ass! And we have to pay a fine if we refuse to pay such high premiums! Our healthcare system went from decent to third world over the last 5 years! 10) Taxes were way way up, but what about all the crumbling infrastructure all over America!? What about all the trains literally derailing weekly like you would see in a third world country? We paid record taxes just to have a big pile of shit rubbed right into our faces! 11) Reality check commies: the fascist police state started under Bush II (after 9-11) but exponentially expanded under Obama when Obama's admin started allowing the militarization of our police forces. Police were given grenade launchers, tanks, MRAP(s), fully-auto weapons, etc ... yes, all under Obama's watch! So you don't like the militarization of US police? Now you know who really started it!

Look... I could go on and on and on. It was BAD under Bill Clinton and Bush II and even WORSE under Obama.

It's not as bad with Trump in office, but that's because he reduced the government by around 10% so far and has tried his best to keep these agencies under control. It's still not near perfect, but it's a start in the right direction. If we can take back the Republican Party from the establishment it would seriously help the American people a lot. We could actually have a chance to change some of this really fucked up policy and even curb some of the corruption. I know, good luck with such high hope, right?

Not to mention the 30 years of outsourcing of our jobs, other horrible 'trade' agreements like NAFTA (which benefited other nations NOT the US), the NSA domestic spying, the TSA imposing naked body scanners in airports and groping passengers, the communistic takeover of our public school system (started with "No Child Left Behind" and later "Common Core"), the monopolization of major internet conglomerates which is killing off small businesses, all the IoT (Internet of SHIT) almost no consumer wants or cares to own (which is being subsidized by taxpayers thanks to the government) ... holy shit must I go on and on?

ALL OF THIS SHIT is why voters were angry enough to vote for Donald Trump.



Dianne Feinstein Finally Admits More Laws Will NOT Stop Mass Murders, Terrorism: Why Is She Still Pushing Gun Control? Reader 10/09/2017 (Mon) 01:16:05 Id: 0cca03 [Preview] No. 2266 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
RELATED, MUST WATCH: https://youtube.com/watch?v=pELwCqz2JfE

RELATED THREAD: >>>/news/2156

During the October 8 airing of Face the Nation, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) admitted that no law would have stopped the Las Vegas attacker, then proceeded to push for a law to ban bump stocks.

Host John Dickerson introduced the topic of the Vegas attacker, then asked, “Could there have been any law passed that would have stopped him?”

Feinstein responded, “No, [the attacker] passed background checks, registering for handguns and other weapons on multiple occasions.” She then promoted a bill she authored this week, creating a law to ban bump stocks and said she already has 38 co-sponsors for it.

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/dianne-feinstein-talks-to-face-the-nation-after-las-vegas-shooting/

When Dickerson mentioned that the NRA is pushing for the ATF to review its 2010 approval of bump stocks—a review which could result in new regulations—Feinstein said, “I thought that was as step forward, and it’s appreciated, [but] regulations aren’t going to do it. We need a law.”

Again, Feinstein said no law could have stopped the Vegas attacker but “we need a law” against bump stocks.

Don't Talk To Trannies or Weirdos In Commiefornia. I'm Not Kidding. You Can Now Be Sent To Jail For Mistaking Their Gender Reader 10/07/2017 (Sat) 22:18:43 Id: f4ffcf [Preview] No. 2231 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Political correctness has led to full-blown communist tyranny in California.

People in California can now be sent to prison for using the wrong gender pronoun, after Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill Thursday that criminalizes people who refer to someone as “he” when they would prefer to be referred to as “she.”

The new law will be initially applicable to nursing homes and other long-term care facilities, and mandates that those who “willfully and repeatedly” refuse “to use a transgender resident’s preferred name or pronouns” will be guilty of a misdemeanor and punished with a “$1,000 fine and up to twelve months in county prison“, according to the new California Heath and Safety code.

Known as the “LGBT Senior Bill Of Rights,” the legislation also requires nursing homes and care facilities to make their bathrooms gender neutral and allow all residents to use the bathroom of their choice, regardless of biological sex.

I don't have a problem with gender-neutral restrooms, it in my opinion is more efficient due to the fact that if one is occupied, you can easily use the other, and you don't offend people.

The bill in question is absolutely insane though, how is one supposed to know what other desires to be referred to? I refer to people based on how my brain recognizes them, if my brain interprets them as female, I will refer to them as she/her and if my brain interprets them as male, I will refer to them as he/him, simple as that. I find that what we all most desire is closure as to why these individuals think and act this way.

California resembles a communist country at this point. There are so laws and regulations that your day to day life is micromanaged in similar fashion to communist nations. Most communist nations have slave labor, so does California and I've heard stories from people who have moved from there. Most workers with decent jobs can't even make ends meat the taxes are so fucking high. Not to mention apartment buildings charge out the wazoo. People will make $80,000 per year just to have half their income taxed away and won't be able to afford a decent apartment! It's ridiculous! Not to mention the urban citizens are disarmed like cattle, can't take a shit without some inspector analyzing measurements. At this point I'd say California is like America's own North Korea with madman Brown running the state into the toilet.

Move to California for 5 years, then move to another state like Tennessee or Missouri and you'd be shocked at the differences. The difference between slavery and freedom is clear as day I've been told.



ISIS Fighters Cornered, Surrender en Masse In Iraq To Kurds Reader 10/08/2017 (Sun) 16:19:49 Id: daa71e [Preview] No. 2252 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The prisoners were taken to a waiting room in groups of four, and were told to stand facing the concrete wall, their noses almost touching it, their hands bound behind their backs.

More than a thousand Islamic State fighters passed through that room this past week after they fled their crumbling Iraqi stronghold of Hawija. Instead of the martyrdom they had boasted was their only acceptable fate, they had voluntarily ended up here in the interrogation center of the Kurdish authorities in northern Iraq.

For an extremist group that has made its reputation on its ferociousness, with fighters who would always choose suicide over surrender, the fall of Hawija has been a notable turning point. The group has suffered a string of humiliating defeats in Iraq and Syria, but the number of its shock troops who turned themselves in to Kurdish officials at the center in Dibis was unusually large, more than 1,000 since last Sunday.

The fight for Mosul, Iraq’s second-largest city, took nine months, and by comparison, relatively few Islamic State fighters surrendered. Tal Afar fell next, and more quickly, in only 11 days. Some 500 fighters surrendered there.

The Iraqi military ousted the Islamic State, also known as ISIS and ISIL, from Hawija in 15 days, saying it had taken its forces only three days of actual heavy fighting before most of the extremists grabbed their families and ran. According to Kurdish officials, they put up no fight at all, other than planting bombs and booby traps.

Seen up close, the fighters’ pretense of bravado soon disappears.

Their shoes were taken from them, their pockets emptied and their belts discarded, and, as they stood facing the wall, the backs of their dishdashas were stained with the evidence that some of them had not been to a toilet in days.

One of the men smelled so bad that when he was taken into the small interrogation room, those inside were startled. He filled the doorway, appearing even larger than his actual size. The interrogator unbuckled his hip holster, resting his right hand on his pistol.

During the interview, he grew nervous. He said he was from Hawija and had joined the Islamic State because he believed in its cause, because his elder brother had, and because the $100 a month pay was better than anything else around.

Polish Catholics Pray at Borders To Save Country From Soros' Deliberate Destabilization Reader 10/08/2017 (Sun) 12:39:20 Id: 954d23 [Preview] No. 2243 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Thousands of Polish Catholics formed human chains on the country's borders Saturday, begging God "to save Poland and the world" in an event many viewed as a spiritual weapon against the Islamisation of Europe.

Reciting "Rosary to the Borders", they called to be protected from the dangers facing them. The episcopate insisted that it was a purely religious initiative.

The goal was to have as many prayer points as possible along Poland's 3,511-kilometre (2,200-mile) border with Germany, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Ukraine, Belarus, Lithuania, Russia and the Baltic Sea.

Fishing boats joined the event on the sea, while kayaks and sailboats formed chains on Polish rivers, local media said.

During a mass, broadcast live by the Catholic Radio Maryja, Krakow archbishop Marek Jedraszewski called on believers to pray "for the other European nations to make them understand it is necessary to return to Christian roots so that Europe would remain Europe."

Archbishop Stanislaw Gadecki, head of the Polish Episcopal Conference, told the commercial radio station RMF FM that "the key objective of this manifestation is to pray for peace."

The date was not chosen at random. October 7 is when Catholics celebrate the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, marking the 1571 victory of Christianity over the Ottoman Turks at the Battle of Lepanto.

A victory attributed to the recital of the rosary "that saved Europe from Islamisation", the Solo Dios Basta foundation, organising the event, said on its website.

Many Poles see Islam as a threat. The conservative government, which enjoys the backing of a sizeable portion of the population, refuses to welcome Muslim terrorists to Poland.

Michigan State University Condemns ‘Noose’ on Campus That Turns Out to Be Shoelace Reader 10/08/2017 (Sun) 12:59:42 Id: 25b38f [Preview] No. 2245 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The Michigan State University administration condemned the appearance of a "noose" in a dormitory on Wednesday, calling it a racist symbol and a threat.

"I was distressed this morning to learn of a racial incident in one of our residence halls," MSU President Lou Anna Simon said in a statement. "A student reported a noose was hung outside of her room. I want to recognize the courage it took for the student to report this incident."

"I want to be clear: This type of behavior is not tolerated on our campus," Simon continued. "No Spartan should ever feel targeted based on their race, or other ways in which they identify. A noose is a symbol of intimidation and threat that has a horrendous history in America."

Student president Lorenzo Santavicca agreed, calling the incident "disgusting."

"There is absolutely racism on our campus that we have to address. We have to do better," Santavicca told the student paper the State News.

But later in the day, MSU police announced that the "noose" discovered by the student was actually a shoelace and they had located its owner.

The controversy comes after University of Maryland police were called in June to investigate a "noose" on campus that turned out to be a piece of plastic wrap.

Only one way to solve this problem: parents need to stop promoting and sending their kids to these universities. Easily done too: refuse to pay a dime for tuition fees, DO NOT sign any contract with any university! As soon as a parent signs the contract they are obligated to pay all the student loan debt off. Just don't do it.

What can be done instead is parents send their kids to trade schools, like they did back in the day. They are much cheaper, your kids will learn an actual skill (for work) and the trade schools will help those kids get a job based on what skills they have learned. Whether it be plumbing or electrical work, or utility repair or construction, or mining or whatever.

Real jobs = income.

Universities = debt and more than likely unemployment (you won't get that high paying engineering job as an American because the foreign labor from India costs Silicon corporations much less)!

So don't be stupid! Look at the statistics. Many kids who graduate end up flipping burgers and struggle to pay off their huge student loans for the next 20 to 30 years! It's a fucking scam! A big fraud! And ironically, that's what you get for trusting liberal "progressive" socialists. You get shafted when you contribute to this debtor scam.

And the reality is no employers really want to hire socialist SJWs who scream about "muh feelings" all day. They much rather hire hard workers who can handle the fucking job. So think about it folks.



US Govt Caught Spying On Civilian's Financial Records Reader 10/06/2017 (Fri) 21:40:30 Id: 3d96f7 [Preview] No. 2205 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The intelligence division at the Treasury Department has repeatedly and systematically violated domestic surveillance laws by snooping on the private financial records of US citizens and companies, according to government sources.

Over the past year, at least a dozen employees in another branch of the Treasury Department, the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, have warned officials and Congress that US citizens’ and residents’ banking and financial data has been illegally searched and stored. And the breach, some sources said, extended to other intelligence agencies, such as the National Security Agency, whose officers used the Treasury’s intelligence division as an illegal back door to gain access to American citizens’ financial records. The NSA did not respond to requests for comment.

In response to questions from BuzzFeed News, the Treasury Department’s Office of the Inspector General said it has launched a review of the issue. Rich Delmar, a lawyer in that office, offered no further comment.

A Treasury Department spokesperson said the department’s various branches “operate in a manner consistent with applicable legal authorities.”

But a senior Treasury official, who is not authorized to speak on the matter so requested anonymity, did not mince words: “This is domestic spying.”

Sources said the spying had been going on under President Barack Obama, but the Donald Trump appointees who now control how the department conducts intelligence operations are Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence Sigal Mandelker.

At issue is the collection and dissemination of information from a vast database of mostly US citizens’ banking and financial records that banks turn over to the government each day. Banks and other financial institutions are required, under the Bank Secrecy Act of 1970, to report suspicious transactions and cash transactions over $10,000. The database is maintained by the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, or FinCEN, a bank regulator charged with combatting money laundering, terrorist financing, and other financial crimes. Under the law, it has unfettered powers to peruse and retain the data.

In contrast to FinCEN, Treasury’s intelligence division, known as the Office of Intelligence and Analysis, or OIA, is charged with monitoring suspicious financial activity that occurs outside the US. Under a seminal Reagan-era executive order, a line runs through the Treasury Department and all other federal agencies separating law enforcement, which targets domestic crimes, from intelligence agencies, which focus on foreign threats and can surveil US citizens only in limited ways and by following stringent guidelines.

Sources also claimed that OIA has opened a back door to officers from other intelligence agencies throughout the government, including the the CIA and the Defense Intelligence Agency. Officials from those agencies have been coming to work at OIA for short periods of time, sometimes for as little as a week, and thereby getting unrestricted access to information on US citizens that they otherwise could not collect without strict oversight.

Good point, yes the IRS does spy on financial records. This article is claiming OTHER agencies do too, such as the Treasury Department, Defense Intelligence Agency, the National Security Agency and likely many other branches (as hinted in the article).

So that means this is not simply about taxes but wanting to know what American's physically own and who they buy things from. Which raises a question: WHY? Do they intend to use this info against us in the future in some way?

The only reason that many agencies would be eyeballing everyone's assets and finances is because they likely are preparing to steal the people's wealth in the near future, possibly by force. I can see the reasons they would want those guns banned so badly.

I think the article is pointing out that several agencies are spying on financial records and it has nothing to do with keeping track of taxes, but about some other kind of hidden agenda. What that agenda is we don't really know at this point but there are multiple agencies interested in what you are purchasing, what you own, what you invest in and how much money you have saved up. If whistleblowers are coming out there must be something pretty draconian being planned in the near future. Maybe the government intends to have total control of what we can/cannot purchase?

>>2234 But every government that incorporates taxation for its citizens does this. Maybe you are misunderstand me:
1) Government exists
2) Therefore [it must tax] to operate
3) Due to many historical and mathematical reason percentile taxing is the norm
4) Due to percentile taxation, government is required to learn how much citizens make a year
5) Thus they are required to learn about how citizens finance
6) Each agency and department of government may have bylaws regarding how that information is or isn't collected, but government already knows how, when, why, and how much you collect.
Therefore Governments that Tax also (((spy))) on citizens finances.

This isn't politics 101, or economics 101, this "if an organization runs, and it forces others to pay for operations, therefore it must acquire knowledge on how resources are gained and distribution within the organization" definition 101. There's no hidden agenda than: "if citizen lives and uses a government that taxes for operating, then it has to know you have money to pay or not."

This definition is dictionary wide, U.S. isn't exempt.

Here's Some Good News For America: Political Establishment Could Be Undermined By Conservative Grassroots In Near Furture Reader 10/07/2017 (Sat) 14:34:22 Id: d54a98 [Preview] No. 2221 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Will conservative Americans take back the Republican Party from the cuckservative establishment?

Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns write for the New York Times that Republican leaders in congress are out of touch with and mystified by their own grassroots, and they are worried that turnover in their ranks will alter the character of congress forever:

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/05/us/politics/republicans-disarray-trump-senate-congress.html
https://web.archive.org/web/20171007142711/https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/05/us/politics/republicans-disarray-trump-senate-congress.html

Republican leaders in Congress are under attack from all sides of their own party, battered by voters from the right and left, spurned by frustrated donors and even threatened by the Trump White House for ineffective leadership and insufficient loyalty.

Since last week, Senate Republicans lost one of their own when Roy S. Moore, the firebrand former state judge, trounced Senator Luther Strange in a Senate runoff in Alabama. The retirement of Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee kicked off a potentially fratricidal fight for his seat, with the establishment’s preferred successor, Gov. Bill Haslam, declining to run on Thursday.

An audiotape surfaced of Vice President Mike Pence’s chief of staff, Nick Ayers, lambasting Republican leaders and urging conservative donors to close their wallets to lawmakers who are disloyal to President Trump.

. . .

Senator Richard C. Shelby, Republican of Alabama, who was first elected to Congress in 1978, said he had never seen rank-and-file Republicans so stirred up against the party’s leaders in Congress.

When we commented on this morning's Trump tweetstorm, in which he covered everything from the fake (and not so fake) media, to RNC donors, to reaching out to Democrats on Obamacare repeal, to "late night" comedians and their "one-sided coverage" of Trump, we said that Trump has yet to make a comment on the most cryptic topic of the last week, his repeated suggestions that the current situation is a "calm before the storm."

Moments ago, he may have done just that, when in his latest pair of tweets, Trump ominously suggested that following 25 years of failed diplomacy with North Korea, there is "only one thing that will work."

"Presidents and their administrations have been talking to North Korea for 25 years, agreements made and massive amounts of money paid hasn't worked, agreements violated before the ink was dry, makings fools of U.S. negotiators. Sorry, but only one thing will work!"

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 7, 2017

The tweets prompted profoundly existential questions such as this one:

Is trump threatening North Korea from the golf course?

— Bill Bishop (@niubi) October 7, 2017

While Trump did not specify what that "one thing" is (at least not yet), it stands to reason that the president is referring to some sort of military intervention, i.e. war, which of course would most likely prompt a retaliation by North Korea, one which according to the 38 North website could result in over 2 million fatalities and nearly 8 million injuries.

For those who missed it, here again is "What Would A North Korean Nuclear Attack Look Like?"

EPA To Repeal Obama-era 'Climate Change' Regulations Against Power Plants Reader 10/07/2017 (Sat) 15:37:47 Id: 96754e [Preview] No. 2222 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Myron Ebell, the Competitive Enterprise Institute’s (CEI) director of Energy and Environment programs and the Trump administration’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) transition chair, released an exclusive statement to Breitbart News.

Ebell argued that eliminating the Obama-era EPA’s Clean Power Plan (CPP) serves as a crucial part of “Trump’s deregulatory agenda.”

Breitbart News revealed on Friday that the EPA will repeal the EPA’s Clean Power Plan, a signature climate change regulation spawned during the Obama administration.

The 43-page document, titled, “Repeal of Carbon Pollution Emission Guidelines for Existing Stations Sources: Electric Utility Generating Units” details how the EPA plans to repeal CPP through a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM). This version of the document obtained by Breitbart News remains subject to change through inter-agency review.

The agency contends that the EPA, under former Administrator Gina McCarthy, exceeded its authority to regulate carbon emissions as stipulated by the Clean Air Act. The document proposes to eliminate the Clean Power Plan, and then suggested that they might release an Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) that will reflect a more thoughtful and modest approach to regulating air pollution given the EPA’s limited statutory authority.

President Donald Trump signed an executive order in March ordering a review of the Clean Power Plan as well as other environmental regulations. Instead of Obama’s stifling energy regulations, the Trump administration will promote policies that favor American “energy dominance.”

I'm glad Trump is refusing to cave when it comes to this issue, America needs to become self-sufficient and energy independent as possible. Especially when we have both Russia and China trying their best to undermine the US dollar.
