After Democrat California Governor Jerry Brown pardoned two illegal aliens who had committed felonies and were set to be deported, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo mimicked the action and pardoned 18 convicted illegal immigrants who were facing deportation. In both cases, this action stopped deportation.
To the skeptical mind, this sounds like a flimsy ploy to use taxpayer funds to pay for the support of terrorism in Canada. Why would anyone want to do that? Because some people in high places actually want terrorism so there will be a plausible excuse to enact laws against liberty and to declare martial law. Martial law is the ultimate excuse for totalitarianism.
President Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu signed a joint document that includes using covert action to block Iran’s path to nuclear weapons and countering Iranian support for Syria and Hezbollah. It also includes an agreement to prepare for war-escalation scenarios in Iran, Syria, Hezbollah in Lebanon, and Hamas in Gaza.
Analyst Jake Morphonios predicts that Trump’s declaration of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel was a move toward a Third World War that will be fought against Iran, backed by Russia, which then will expand to the Pacific against China and North Korea. He predicts, step-by-step, how the war will escalate and how false-flag attacks will be used as justification, based on historical examples. Although Morphonios is critical of the Zionist state of Israel in this scheme, hear him out and you will see (at 34:05) that this has nothing to do with Jews as such and everything to do with war-mongers. The comparison of Trump to Nixon suggests that presidents are not in control of US foreign policy but just go along with what they inherit.
President Trump issued an Executive Order allowing the government to seize the assets of people and corporations said to be associated with corruption and human-rights abuses, with global jurisdiction. It is not stated who will determine guilt in these cases, so that means it will be the President, and there is no provision for due process of law. It is inevitable that this order eventually will be used, not for justice, but for political leverage.
Sweden: The School of Lilla Edet hired a 25-year old Muslim migrant with a record of knife-fighting as a school counselor who, according to police, spammed students with photos of his penis. Swedish media report that he was previously convicted of trying to cut up members of a rival Arab clan during an “honor conflict”. Sweden is on track to legalizing rape and violence when committed by Muslims “because it’s their culture”.
Berkeley Police Chief Andrew Greenwood wanted the city council to authorize the police to use pepper spray on violent protesters, which he said should be preferred over using batons and physical force. This video dramatically shows the propaganda rhetoric of professional organizers, some of whom endorse communist ideology and tactics.
The complaint alleges that the Hillary Victory Fund solicited six-figure donations from mega-donors and routed them through state parties and ultimately into Clinton campaign coffers. An estimated $84-million may have been laundered in what might be the single largest campaign finance scandal in US history. Hillary and the DNC also were served with another FEC complaint in late October for hiding payment for the fake Russia dossier used against Donald Trump during the campaign.
Palm Springs, California: Race-conscious activists want the city to chop down a grove of 60-year old tamarisk trees, labeling them ‘racist’, because they border a golf course and separate it from a black residential neighborhood. The claim is that the motive for planting them was unacceptable. If they had been planted to separate a white neighborhood from the golf course, that would have been acceptable but not to separate it from a black neighborhood. [Does anyone see a flaw in this proposal? Or is it a flaw in the people making the proposal?]
US District Judge, James Robart of the federal court in Seattle, ruled that the federal government must process refugee applications for people “with a bona fide relationship to a person or entity within the United States.” This ruling was in spite of the Supreme Court’s ruling that Trump’s ban was Constitutional. The lower court challenges were brought by a Jewish pro-immigration group and the ACLU.
A new study from Zillow shows that a record 30% of American single adults, up from 21% in 2005, have been compelled to take on roommates to afford monthly rent payments. High rents have resulted from central banking policies that provide low-interest loans that drive up asset bubbles (like real estate) while wage growth is minimal.
