Conservative Local Politician’s Home in Scotland Firebombed While the Family Slept


Scotland: A local politician, Councillor Graeme Campbell of the Scottish Conservatives party, says his wife’s car was doused with accelerant and torched just feet from where they slept, and if not for a passing neighbor alerting them to the growing fire, the damage could have been far worse or fatal. The fire spread to the front of the house and the garage was destroyed. Campbell said that he will not be intimidated. Conservative and anti-globalist politicians across the U.K. have been targeted by radical leftists in recent weeks, as Nigel Farage, Carl Benjamin, and Tommy Robinson have all been hit with milkshakes on the campaign trail as the violence is escalating.

A local politician and his family narrowly escaped a suspected arson attack at their home in South Lanarkshire, Scotland.

Councillor Graeme Campbell
of the Scottish Conservatives party says his wife’s car was doused with
accelerant and set ablaze just feet from where they slept, and if not
for a passing neighbor alerting them to the growing fire, the damage
could have been far worse or fatal.

“I heard a bang and it woke me up, then my wife heard someone knocking on my door but I told her not to open it,” Campbell told STV News. “I then went down and the person said my car was on fire and the car was just an inferno.”

“The fire had spread to the front of the house. The front of the
garage has gone. The next door neighbor’s house has also taken some
damage.”

California’s Border Shelters Overflow, Causing Border Agents to Drop Migrants at Bus Station


US Border Patrol has begun to release illegal aliens at bus stations as detention facilities are filled to capacity following a surge in migrants at the US-Mexico border. Apprehensions of migrant families in California’s El Centro sector rose 383%, which includes 293,000 unaccompanied children and people traveling in families over the past seven months. Migrants are now being bused into San Bernardino. El Centro is one of nine sectors on the US-Mexico border and all of them have been flooded beyond the maximum holding level.

A surge in migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border has pushed immigration detention facilities in California to capacity, forcing U.S. Border Patrol to release many at bus stations in the state for the first time, the agency said on Monday.

.S. Border Patrol in the El Centro area of southern California said
it began to drop migrants off at San Bernardino’s Greyhound Station on
Wednesday after it ran out of room to hold them.

“It was a
decision that was made because they couldn’t take any more families and
obviously we cannot keep them in custody for much longer because we are
at capacity,” said Miguel Garcia, acting assistant chief patrol agent.

Apprehensions
of migrant families in California’s El Centro sector rose 383 percent
in the seven months through April from a year earlier as record numbers
of mainly Central Americans crossed the border, Border Patrol data
shows.

In San Bernardino, long a transit hub for east-west travel
and freight, immigrants were dropped off at the bus terminal by Customs
and Border Patrol Agents to wait for family, friends or volunteers to
pick them up.

“We
asked them where they were going to drop us off and they said at a bus
station and there you might find some people who can help you, and
that’s it,” said Angel Gonzalez, 34, who left Guatemala on April 25 with
his 11-year-old son and traveled through Mexico before crossing the
U.S. border.

Gonzalez and his son were held by Customs and
Border Patrol for six nights before they were released at the bus
station on Sunday, seeking a ride to join relatives in Arkansas.

Immigration
authorities for years have dropped off migrants at bus stations in the
Southwest, after releasing them pending court hearings to decide whether
they can stay in the country. From there, they travel to their intended
destination in the United States.

Record numbers of families
from Central America are traveling to the U.S.-Mexico border and asking
for asylum in the United States, fleeing poverty and violence in their
home countries. From October 2018 through this April, nearly 293,000
unaccompanied children or people traveling in families were apprehended
at the southern U.S. border – nearly four times the number during the
same period the prior year.

43% of Americans Believe Socialism Would Be Good for the Nation


Only 17% knew that socialism is government ownership of property and the means of production. 47% of Americans say they would vote for a socialist candidate for president.

A newly released Gallup poll found that a whopping 43% of Americans say socialism would be a good thing for the country.

The poll also found that Americans are split on viewing economy as free market or government controlled.

“Americans today are more closely divided than they were earlier in
the last century when asked whether some form of socialism would be a
good or bad thing for the country. While 51% of U.S. adults say
socialism would be a bad thing for the country, 43% believe it would be a
good thing. Those results contrast with a 1942 Roper/Fortune survey
that found 40% describing socialism as a bad thing, 25% a good thing and
34% not having an opinion,” Gallup reports.

The researchers found that Americans’ definition of socialism has
also changed over the years, with a quarter of respondents associating
the concept with social equality and only 17% associating it with the
proper definition of having government control of the means of
production.

The findings were, of course, split across partisan lines. They found
that the majority of Democrats have a positive view of socialism — 57%
in 2018.

Austria’s Government Collapses After Far-Right Minister Was Filmed Appearing to Agree to Contracts with Russia


A deep political crisis engulfed Austria when a video was released showing the leader of the country’s junior coalition. far-right Freedom Party (FPÖ) seemingly agreeing to offer public contracts to a Russian backer in 2017. The video appears to be part of a ‘sting’ operation. The two-year old video was leaked to leftist German newspapers just a week ahead of the European Union elections in which far-right and populist parties are expected to do well. But, now, all of the FPÖ ministers have resigned. Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz will face a no-confidence vote on Monday.

A deep political crisis engulfed Austria on Friday after a video was released showing the leader of the country’s junior coalition far-right Freedom Party (FPÖ) seemingly agree to offer public contracts to a Russian backer — and one name, that of a German satirist, keeps coming up.

In the three days since the scandal erupted, the man at the
heart of it all, Vice-Chancellor and FPÖ leader Heinz-Christian Strache,
resigned; Chancellor Sebastian Kurz accused the party of trying to
undermine reforms and called for snap elections; and FPÖ ministers
riposted by resigning en masse.

Meanwhile,
the German media outlets which released the footage have refused to say
who gave it to them, but questions are arising about Jan Böhmermann, a
German satirist and television presenter, after recent comments he made
reveal he’s known about the video for a while.

Euronews breaks it all down.

The video

The
footage was released on Friday by Germany’s “Süddeutsche Zeitung” (SZ)
and “Spiegel” and was captured in Ibiza, Spain, in the summer of 2017.

It
shows Strache and another FPÖ official, Johann Gudenus, speak with a
woman they believe to be a Russian oligarch’s niece. She tells them she
plans to invest €250 million in Austria and they discuss how this could
help the far-right party. Strache suggests she invests in the “Kronen
Zeitung” tabloid to turn it into an FPÖ-friendly outlet and appears to
promise public contracts in exchange.

They also discuss how to
cover up illegal donations she might want to make to the party and
Strache’s plans to restructure the country’s state broadcaster, ORF, in
order to build “a media landscape like [Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor]
Orban did.”

Strache’s response

In his resignation speech
on Saturday morning, Strache decried the “dirty campaign” against him,
arguing that it was part of a “targeted political assassination”.
