Sussex Police Imprison Man for Speaking Out Against Radical Islamic Hate and Violence

The Sussex police force in the U.K. arrested a man for condemning the evil of Islam and calling it out online.

The man was “jailed for stirring up religious hatred in Facebook posts”:

A man is facing more than a year behind bars for attempting to stir up religious hatred in Sussex.

Nigel Pelham was charged with eight counts of publishing threatening written material intending to stir up religious hatred against Muslims on dates between February 24 and November 16, 2015 on his own Facebook account. The charges are not used very often and are so serious they need Attorney General approval to be brought against someone.

Pelham, 50, of Freehold Street, Shoreham appeared on March 7 at Lewes Crown Court and pleaded guilty to the offences.

On June 16 he was sentenced at Blackfriars Crown Court in London to 20 months for each of the eight counts to run concurrently. He also has to pay £100 victim surcharge and has had two hard drives and his tower computer confiscated.

The Fight to Free Sgt Derrick Miller – Imprisoned for Life for Saving Lives

U.S. Army National Guardsman Sgt. Derrick Miller, now thirty-three-years-old, of Hagerstown, Maryland, was convicted in July of 2011 for the pre-meditated murder of an Afghan man in 2010.

Sgt. Miller is father of two little girls. At the time of the shooting of the Afghan man, Sgt. Miller was assigned to a unit within the Connecticut National Guard and was attached to the 101st Airborne Division. Following his joining of the National Guard in 2006, Miller experienced three combat deployments and had been recently promoted.

Sgt. Miller is serving life in prison with the opportunity for parole in 2020. Sgt. Miller shot and killed an Afghan civilian following the civilian attempting to grab Sgt. Miller’s weapon during a period of intense questioning. The Afghan civilian was a suspected insurgent that was walking through Sgt. Miller’s “platoon defensive perimeter observing their defensive positions”.

Following the shooting, Sgt. Miller’s unit was implicated in a complex attack and Afghan National Army fighters that were assigned to stay with the platoon disappeared prior to the onset of the firefight. They hid behind a building.

Sgt. Miller was embroiled in a firefight the night he killed the Afghan man. The Afghan man was an insurgent and yet no one in the military wants to say this and directly confront the duplicitous Afghanis. The firefight was not instigated by American soldiers; the firefight was meant to kill American soldiers, and Afghan National Army fighters were nowhere to be found.

As far as the case goes, the witnesses opposing Sgt. Miller are suspicious on two accounts. The first witness was a soldier that originally backed up the claims made by Sgt. Miller regarding the event, but when threatened with being named as an accessory and “being placed on legal hold so he could not de-mobilize”, he changed his story. The other witness was an Afghan translator that was promised citizenship in the U.S. in exchange for testimony.

This man was brought to the U.S. in January of 2011 and lived on Fort Campbell in a hotel on the base at $630 per month with a van dedicated to his transportation wherever he wanted to go – all of this was on the taxpayer dime. Morality is void in this case, save for the morality of Sgt. Miller.

All of Sgt. Miller’s men returned home unharmed from their deployment. Sgt. Miller returned home to Leavenworth where he is serving a life sentence after being charged for pre-meditated murder on the battlefield.

Look closely at the powers that exist in this nation and who is fought for and who is not fought for. Look now at the Congressional Black Caucus, a poor excuse for a representative caucus within Congress, and beyond this, they are execrable for refusing to fight for Sgt. Miller, a black soldier that saved countless lives. Leave it to the Congressional Black Caucus to be silent. They are pathetic cowards in the pocket of much more powerful Democrats, and we all know how so many Democrats look at our soldiers.

Sgt. Miller needs the help of honest politicians and more importantly he needs the public support of Americans across the country to help him get his life back. He has an ex-wife and two little girls waiting for him. Sgt. Miller is imprisoned for life for saving lives. The left is unmoved, they do not care about justice as much as they care about upholding protocol that could ultimately cost lives. Given this, it is obvious that they also do not understand what a war is or how that plays out. War is not something that can be finely regimented and the lives of our troops outweigh the lives of any and all foreign nationals.

WSJ Fires Top Reporter Over Questionable Business Dealings With CIA Gunrunner

The Wall Street Journal fired one of their top reporters after an investigation by the AP concluding that he “engaged in questionable business arrangements with a source”.

The reporter, Jay Solomon, was WSJ’s “chief foreign correspondent reporteruntil it was revealed that one of his primary sources, Farhad Azima, known for being an arms-dealer relative to the CIA, offered Solomon a stake in a company of his.

The Hill reports:

The Wall Street Journal has fired one of its top reporters after an Associated Press investigation revealed he had engaged in questionable business arrangements with a source.

Jay Solomon, the paper’s chief foreign correspondent, was let go after the AP revealed one of his sources, Farhad Azim, a CIA arms dealer, had offered him a stake in one of his companies.

“I clearly made mistakes in my reporting and entered into a world I didn’t understand.” Solomon told the AP. “I never entered into any business with Farhad Azima, nor did I ever intend to. But I understand why the emails and the conversations I had with Mr. Azima may look like I was involved in some seriously troubling activities. I apologize to my bosses and colleagues at the Journal, who were nothing but great to me.”

The Wall Street Journal said in a statement it was “dismayed” by Solomon’s actions and “poor judgment.”

“While our own investigation continues, we have concluded that Mr. Solomon violated his ethical obligations as a reporter, as well as our standards,” the paper said.

The investigation by the AP, oddly enough, was a byproduct of a totally different investigation involving an Iranian-born “aviation magnate”.

Azima is allegedly tied to mob figures but was under a level of immunity due to his work as a gunrunner for the CIA.

ODD: Four of Macron’s Ministers Quit in 48 Hours, Socialist Unknowns Fill Positions

It appears that Emmanuel Macron is already carving out his legacy as one of the most bizarre leaders in modern history.

Macron was elected on a pledge to “clean up politics” and whether or not he’s doing that yet is not wholly clear. In the interim, though, he continues to court controversy in a way that few have in the past. First and foremost, his campaign was plagued by scandals dubbed “#MacronGate”, the details of which are vague and the veracity of the documents unclear in full. Following his election, he began pushing a bill to put France in a permanent state of emergency.

The Guardian reports:

Four cabinet members have resigned this week after being put under preliminary investigation in two separate scandals, leaving Macron’s prime minister, Édouard Philippe, under pressure to find replacements while maintaining a pledge to maintain gender and party-political parity.

François Bayrou, president of the MoDem party, – allies of Macron’s La République en Marche – who stepped down on Wednesday, was replaced by Nicole Belloubet, a figure almost unknown to the wider public and the first woman nominated to France’s constitutional council.
Belloubet, a technocrat and legal expert from the left, is a former local and regional councillor in the Toulouse region.

Florence Parly, another high-ranking French civil servant and former business leader, was named defence minister. Parly served in the Socialist government of prime minister Lionel Jospin between 2000 and 2002. She later joined Air France as deputy general director, before moving to the state-run rail company SNCF.

Annick Girardin, a third, largely unknown junior minister who served in François Hollande’s Socialist government was named overseas minister.

Nathalie Loiseau, a French diplomat, was appointed European affairs minister.

Macron appeared to have ditched his centrist allies after two more high-profile government ministers resigned on Wednesday after a month in office.

Now, Macron named a group of virtual unknowns to a series of senior government cabinet posts rather than the centrist allies one would expect. Macron is installing a technocratic, near-dictatorial, socialist cabinet and in that same breath the argument could be made that he is consolidating his government’s power and achieving autonomous rule through this. The barrier at the end of the race, however, will always be the European Union.

Macron is clearly the figure one elects under the auspice of a certain ideal that flip-flops to a completely different, yet not entirely alien ideal. Consider this, his shift, in terms of cabinet members, comes after his party won sweeping victories in parliamentary elections. Since then, Macron also is consolidating his power through control of the media. We are witnessing a power grab by a young and driven leader, but is the power grab for the good of the people?

Macron’s moral compass might be misguided, but then again, he could be attempting to rectify the Muslim/refugee problem, and the problem of unruly and insubordinate youth, violent protesters and rioters, etc. Macron is nicknamed “Jupiter” for a reason – Jupiter is the “all-powerful Roman god of heaven and Earth who embodied a sense of morality, obligation and dirty to correct [behavior]”, but the leaked documents seem to show a different side of the politician.

All-in-all, it is extremely difficult to place where Macron stands and who Macron is, but his impact on the state of the world could be massive.

WATCH: Ivanka Trump Talks Infrastructure and Changing the DC Status Quo

Monday, Ivanka Trump visited “Fox & Friends” for an exclusive interview where she talked about everything from James Comey to future plans.

When asked about what she thought emerged from the Comey hearing, Ivanka commented:

“Well, my father felt very vindicated in all the statements [Comey’s] been making and feels incredibly optimistic.”

She then went on to comment on the lack of attention given by the press to infrastructure week as well as what their focus was last week:

“While it didn’t get the level of headlines . . . Infrastructure week, [we focused] on the commitment to rebuild this country, rebuild rural locations, which have fallen into great disrepair, repair our waterways, air traffic control, so there were a series of very important and big and far reaching initiatives on infrastructure, this coming week is about workforce development.”

Watch part one of the interview below:

In part two, Ivanka discussed the Perkins Act:

“It’s all about skills based education and really making sure people have the technical skills to succeed in this modern economy, so we’re very excited and this is honestly what it’s all about. I mean, we moved down to Washington, we want to be helpful, we want to do big things, important things, and there’s nothing more important than enabling people.”

REPORT: POTUS Trump Authorizes Strike That DESTROYS Islamic Militant Base in Somalia

The U.S. carried out an airstrike on al Shabaab Islamic militants in Somalia on Sunday.

Somali special forces were assisting in the attack in an effort to destroy a key training facility, plus command posts.

The Pentagon estimates the strike killed eight militants. This is the first strike in Somalia “under new authorities granted by President Donald Trump in March”. A U.S. official informed Reuters that the strike was a drone strike and spoke on the condition of anonymity.

Reuters:

The United States carried out an air strike on al Shabaab militants in Somalia on Sunday, and Somalia said its special forces had joined in the attack to destroy one of the group’s main training and command posts.

The base was in the Middle Juba region in southern Somalia, the office of Somalia’s President Mohamed Abdullahi said.

“Earlier today, I authorised our special forces with the support of our international partners to conduct a strike against an al Shabaab training camp near Sakow,” his statement said.

“This was a successful strike that destroyed a key al Shabaab command and supply hub. This will ultimately disrupt the enemy’s ability to conduct new attacks within Somalia.”

There was no immediate comment from al Shabaab.

REPORT: Meddling EU Urged Theresa May to Hold Snap Election in Hopes to ‘Derail’ Brexit

Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the European Commission, pressured British PM Theresa May into holding the General Election to “make negotiating Brexit easier”.

Juncker alleged that May’s 17-seat majority was not enough for exit talks. Juncker urged May to hold the election in an effort to gain a larger majority that would help May during “pinch points” (things like “establishing the sum of the U.K.’s divorce bill”). Juncker, just like the rest of us, did not know what the outcome would be and it was a total gamble that paid off for him and the rest of the European left-wing in the end, not May.

May is on weaker footing than when she began and she faces calls for her resignation.

The Sunday Express reports:

A European Union source claimed: “During bilaterals, in the margins of summits, Juncker repeatedly told her he thought she should do it.”

A second diplomat told the Observer: “People don’t understand. We want a deal more than anyone. We are professionals, we have a mandate to get a deal and we want to be successful in that.”

Mr Juncker and Mrs May’s relationship has become increasingly strained in recent months, made even worse after it was revealed his team leaked details of a dinner between the pair at Downing Street.

NOW: Puerto Rico Voters Overwhelmingly Wish to Become 51st State (VIDEO)

Sunday, Puerto Rican voters looked like they were headed to choose statehood over independence (or the status quo), but the referendum most likely won’t change a thing for the island territory.

At the time of reporting, over 97% of voters chose statehood. The referendum is “non-binding” and would only move forward if Congress approved of it, which most likely will not happen considering the island’s debt of over $70 billion and its 45% poverty rate.

If granted statehood, Puerto Rico would be granted access to federal funds and in that same breath would be the same as any other U.S. State.

The Washington Examiner reports:

This year’s referendum on statehood was Puerto Rico’s fifth. Statehood won for the first time in the last vote, in 2012, but the results were questioned and Puerto Rico’s status remained the same.

Turnout in the election was low, with initial statistics showing below 25 percent of voters went to the polls. The island’s major opposition party, the Popular Democratic Party, boycotted the election. Two other political parties that don’t support statehood also boycotted the election.

The Department of Justice did not back the referendum.

The ballot this year asked voters if they wanted statehood, independence or to remain a territory of the United States.

Qatar Hires Former US Attorney General Ashcroft to Combat Allegations of Supporting Terrorism

The Qatari government hired John Ashcroft, the acting U.S. AG during the 9/11 attacks, in an attempt to rebut accusations that it supports terrorism.

Qatar will pay $2.5M to the Ashcroft Law Firm for a 90-day period as they attempt to confirm their efforts to “fight global terrorism and comply with financial regulations”, which includes U.S. Treasury rules, according to a Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) filing Friday with the U.S. Justice Department.

A letter included in the FARA filing penned by Ashcroft firm partner Michael Sullivan states that:

“The firm’s work will include crisis response and management, program and system analysis, media outreach, education and advocacy regarding the client’s historical, current and future efforts to combat global terror and its compliance goals and accomplishments.”

Reuters reports:

The government of Qatar has hired John Ashcroft, the U.S. attorney general during the Sept. 11 attacks, as it seeks to rebut accusations from U.S. President Donald Trump and its Arab neighbors that it supports terrorism.

Qatar faces isolation by fellow Arab countries after Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Egypt severed ties with Doha on Monday, accusing it of supporting Islamist militants and their adversary Iran. Qatar denies the allegations.

The crisis is a major diplomatic test for the United States, which is a close ally of countries on both sides but has given mixed signals on whether to isolate Qatar or bring it into talks with other Gulf countries.

Three Army Rangers Killed by Afghan Soldier in ‘Insider Attack’ (VIDEO)

Saturday, the Taliban claimed responsibility for an attack carried out by an Afghan army soldier that killed three U.S. Army Rangers and wounded one other.

U.S. Army Rangers, assigned to Alpha Company, 1st Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment, provide suppressive fire on an enemy compound during Decisive Action Rotation 15-02 at the National Training Center, Fort Irwin, Calif., Nov. 15, 2014. The decisive action rotations allow conventional forces to work with elite forces, such as Ranger and Special Forces. (U.S. Army photo by Sgt. Richard W. Jones Jr./Released)

Attahullah Khogyani, a spokesman “for the provincial governor in Nangarhar province”, informed Fox News that the “insider attack” occurred in the Achin district.

“An Afghan army soldier opened fire and killed [three] American [soldiers] and injured [one] others. The Afghan soldier was killed in return fire.”

A Taliban spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid, claimed a Taliban loyalist “infiltrated” the Afghan army “just to attack foreign forces”.

Fox News reports:

A statement from the U.S. military said merely that the military was “aware of an incident in eastern Afghanistan.”

White House Deputy Communications Director Raj Shah said President Trump had been informed of the situation.

Such insider attacks have happened before in Afghanistan. In March, another Afghan soldier was killed after he opened fire on foreign forces at a base in Helmand province, wounding three U.S. soldiers.

Vice President Mike Pence commented on the death of the three soldiers while giving a speech in Milwaukee, Wisconsin:

“When heroes fall, Americans grieve – and our thoughts and prayers are with the families of these American heroes.”

REPORT: Senate Unanimously Calls for POTUS to Move U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem

The Senate passed a resolution that calls for POTUS to make a major break from predecessors on both sides of the aisle and move the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

(Politico)

Last Thursday, President Trump did what every one of his predecessors did and signed a waiver that “delays the embassy relocation”. The President promised to move the embassy to Jerusalem throughout the campaign.

The “Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995” allows the President to delay the move for six-month intervals “in the interest of national security”.

In a shocking 90-0 vote, for “commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Six Day War and the reunification of the city of Jerusalem”, the Senate passed their bipartisan resolution.

WATCH: ‘Fearless Girl’ Statue Gets the Burqa Treatment During the #MarchAgainstSharia

Rebel Media’s Laura Loomer made a bold and hilarious statement today at the #MarchAgainstSharia in New York City when she covered the “Fearless Girl” statue with a burqa!

Saturday, people across the country gathered to march for human rights against Sharia. At the gathering in New York City, wearing the classic, red “Make America Great Again” hat, Rebel Media’s Laura Loomer carried a sign that read “No Such Thing as Islamic Feminism” and covered the “Fearless Girl” statue in New York City with a burqa.

In a comment she gave to Big League Politics, Loomer said:

“I wanted to take my sign to the statue which is supposed to be a protest against patriarchy and capitalism — to protest the most vile and oppressive patriarchy in the world, which is Islam. I also wanted to expose the hypocrisy of the left, as nobody there would disavow the patriarchy that is Sharia while celebrating this statue.”

Big League Politics reports:

“You guys don’t want to take pictures with it? Why not? You don’t like the image of a woman in a burqa? This isn’t enough feminism for you?” Loomer asked the upset crowd.

UPDATE: Additional Footage Reveals CNN Staging #FakeNews Muslim ‘Anti-Terror’ Protest

After CNN was caught staging a protest featuring Muslims “condemning” terror, they vehemently denied doing this and have since been proven to be liars.

Donald Trump, Jr. tweeted this out and was attacked immediately by CNN who claimed this footage is mislabeled and doesn’t represent what really happened:

Below is footage from Claire Jordan who was on scene and commented that the Muslims brought in to the scene were “taking selfies, none of them have got flowers.”

Beyond this, she indicates that she “was there just before” and says that “you see, again, this is the group of women and the little boy, they’re just getting their posters now.”

WATCH: TGP’s Lucian Wintrich Talks Evergreen State, Race, and Liberals with OAN’s Stephanie Hamill

The Gateway Pundit’s Lucian Wintrich sat down with OAN’s Stephanie Hamill recently to discuss the radical, left-wing insanity that overtook Evergreen State College recently among other things.

Wintrich touched on a number of poignant topics along the way, commenting at one point that “it feels like we’re living in a bizarro version of the 1950s where racism has truly reversed.”

On the situation at Evergreen State College, and across campuses both in the U.S. and elsewhere in the West, Wintrich said:

“What happened on Evergreen State college territory is absolutely absurd . . . [It’s] all due to this sort of victimhood mentality that the left has pushed, right? They’re saying that black students are being held back, are being oppressed by every white person, they can’t name a policy, they can’t say who this is coming from, there’s this invisible force holding them back, and so the natural response to that is that these black students say ‘well, okay, we don’t wanna be held back, no whites allowed on campus, any white professor, you’re not allowed to teach.’”

On Linda Sarsour and her recent scam involving a fake violent “hate crime”, Wintrich didn’t hold back on the insightful commentary.

“Once again, it’s astonishing,” Wintrich begins, he goes on to say that both Evergreen State’s incident and Sarsour’s scam are mutually related, “the Democrats, the left, they’re responsible for the resurgence of the KKK [in the past] and their excuse then was that blacks, minorities, were holding down the white race and the Democrats were the only saviors for the white race. Hillary Clinton famously said, I believe in the 1980s, early 90s, that you could not run as a Democrat without being a member of the KKK. And then, in the 90s again, Hillary tried to pull that back out of her hat and said ‘let’s bring the blacks to heel’. So, I think maybe in the early 2000s, the left realized that that sort of race-baiting, directed at whites, saying whites are being held back isn’t really working . . .”

Lucian goes on to describe the shift in the left’s mentality and how they decided to find the next group being held back and how that created the chaos that has taken hold today.

US Government: 2 Muslim Men Charged With Planning Terrorist Attack (VIDEO)

Two Muslim men from Dearborn, Michigan and New York City, respectively, were told by a terrorist organization to find potential targets in New York and Panama, according to U.S. authorities.

Thursday, the U.S. government announced the arrest of Samer El Debek, 37, of Dearborn, Michigan, and Ali Kourani, 32, from the Bronx, New York. Both were charged in Manhattan federal court with “providing support to a terrorist organization”. Defense lawyers did not immediately comment following the arrests.

The two men were directly linked to Hezbollah’s “Islamic Jihad organization” following military training provided by the entity. The men were attempting to supply support for Hezbollah with El Debek looking for targets in Panama, including American and Israeli embassies. El Debek was also looking into how close someone could get to the ships that pass through the Panama Canal and if there was potentially a flaw, or exploitable weakness, in the construction. Kourani spent his time surveilling American targets, “including military and law enforcement facilities in New York City”.

WHIOTV7 reports:

Two men from Michigan and New York City were tasked by a terrorist organization with looking for potential terrorism targets in New York and Panama, U.S. authorities said Thursday as they announced the suspects’ recent arrests.

Authorities said El Debek has told the FBI that he was detained by Hezbollah from December 2015 until April 2016 after he was falsely accused of spying for the United States. They said that from late 2014 until February, El Debek has conducted over 250 Facebook searches with words including “martyrs of the holy defense,” ”martyrs of Islamic resistance” and “martyrs of the Islamic resistance in Lebanon.”

William F. Sweeney Jr., head of the New York FBI office, said the charges “reveal once again that the New York City region remains a focus of many adversaries, demonstrated as alleged in this instance by followers of a sophisticated and determined organization with a long history of coordinating violent activities on behalf of Hezbollah.”

#FakeNews CNN Tries to Railroad Weather Channel Founder, Gets Schooled on Climate Change Instead (VIDEO)

Weather Channel founder John Coleman schooled CNN’s Brian Stelter regarding climate change and the left’s politicizing of climate science to suit their needs.

The transcript from the video is below:

Coleman: “I resent you calling me a denier, that is a word meant to put me down. I’m a skeptic about climate change and I want to make it darn clear that Mr. Kennedy is not scientist, I am. He’s the CEO of the Weather Channel now, I was the founder of the Weather Channel, not the co-founder.”

Stelter: “And I’m glad you did, because I am addicted to the Weather Channel, I watch a lot of cable–”

Coleman: “Stop talking now, hold on just a minute, I’m not done . . . and, CNN has taken a very strong position on global warming that it is a consensus, well there is no consensus in science. Science isn’t a vote, science is about facts and if you get down to the hard, cold facts, there is no question about it. Climate change is not happening, there is no significant manmade global warming now, there hasn’t been any in the past, and there’s no reason to expect any in the future, there’s a whole lot of bologna, and yes, it has become a big political point of the Democratic Party and part of their platform and I regret it’s become political instead of scientific, but the science is on my side.”

Stelter: “I don’t think we’re gonna come to a conclusion about the topic right here–”

Coleman: “Well, I know we’re not because you wouldn’t allow it to happen on CNN, but I’m happy that I got on the air and got a chance to talk to your viewers . . . Hello, everybody . . . There is no global warming.”

Stelter: “What I do wonder is when you see the government, when you see NASA, when you see other institutions say that 97% of climate scientists agree, do you think they’re making it up? What I don’t understand is how you square that.”

Coleman: “Well, that’s a manipulated figure and let me explain it to you. The government puts out about two-and-a-half billion dollars directly for climate research every year, it only gives that money to scientists who will produce scientific results that support the global warming hypothesis of the Democratic Party, the position, so, they don’t have any choice. If you’re gonna get the money, you’ve gotta support their position, therefore, 97% of the scientific reports published support global warming. Why? Because those are the ones the government pays for and that’s where the money is. It’s real simple, but that doesn’t mean it’s right, that doesn’t make it true, that only makes it bought and paid for, the money goes in circles.”

Stelter: “I’m not a scientist, I’m not gonna try to refute you on the facts–”

Coleman: “Well, that’s the truth. Please stand back from this issue and let the two sides be on the air. There are 31,000 scientists that have signed a petition that says it is not valid, that my position is correct, and we’ll keep battling, and we will prevail in time.”

Today Was a Homerun For POTUS – Even #NeverTrumpers Admit It

Ben Shapiro offered up some quality public advice today on Twitter to the President following the Comey hearing.

He opens by saying that “getting into a direct credibility battle with Comey is foolish for Trump. Here’s his best defense”:

Shapiro opens by having Trump say something along the lines of “I didn’t collude with Russia. I am not under investigation, and Comey now admits that, though he wouldn’t before” and “I didn’t obstruct any investigation”:

He continues, saying “Comey admits I never tried to obstruct the Russia investigation. My Flynn comments didn’t impede any investigation, as Comey admits” following that up with “even Comey wouldn’t claim obstruction, because if he thought there was obstruction, he would have quit”:

Shapiro then elaborates on how frustrating it must be to Trump to constantly have his name slandered and lied about by the liberal press.

Twitter is frequently the President’s best outlet to get a message out quickly and without the filtration of the enemies within the White House, “I’ve said some ill-advised things out of frustration that people are accusing me of things I didn’t do” following that up with “I’m not interested in protecting Mike Flynn if he’s guilty of something. Even Comey says I wasn’t trying to obstruct Flynn/Russia”:

Shapiro then brings up Flynn’s phone calls and the real reason for his firing, and the fact that everyone and their mother on The Hill are attempting to keep him from making progress, which to a guy like President Trump must be the most frustrating thing.

“And as far as Flynn’s phone calls, he didn’t do anything wrong outside of lying to Mike Pence about it, which is why I fired him” and “I know that I should have had patience with the process, but I’m not by nature a patient man. That’s an upside and a downside”, but Trump is about progress, not stagnation:

Shapiro ends his commentary by bringing up two of Trump’s major virtues, his will to get stuff done and his will to help the American people.

“I want to get stuff done, and get frustrated when I can’t. But calling my actions obstruction – with no underlying crime! – is gross”, “so let’s get back to work. I’ll try to contain my impatience. And everyone else should try to focus on helping me help Americans”:

REPORT: NYC Liberals OBSESS Over Getting Rid of White-Majority Schools

The left will never stop, NYC activists are up in arms about a Department of Education plan to fix alleged socioeconomic and racial “segregation”.

The plan claims that blacks and Hispanics make up 70% of overall students in NYC and that for a school to be “racially representative” it must have somewhere between 50 and 90% black and Hispanic students.

NYC council members Brad Lander and Ritchie Torres call it a “serious start to a decades-overdue effort” but were upset that the plan did not use the words “integration” and “segregation”, they opined:

“We are sorry to see that the plan does not use the words ‘segregation’ and ‘integration’, but instead sticks to the more anodyne ‘diversity’ . . . We will not break the cycle of segregation if we cannot even name it.”

The Daily Caller reports:

Jill Bloomberg, the principal of Park Slope Collegiate School, also called out the Department of Education for not using the word “segregation.”

“Integration is a policy specifically designed to fight racist inequity,” said Bloomberg. “The goal should not be to add diversity as another benefit for a select group of students. Our goal should be to create schools so there is no school in the system that parents wouldn’t want to send their kids to.”

BOMBSHELL: Government Estimates Up to 100 Victims of Female Genital Mutilation in Michigan

Wednesday, a federal prosecutor announced in court that the government estimates as many as 100 girls were subject to genital mutilation by Dr. Nagarwala.

As TGP previously reported, a Muslim physician was arrested Wednesday, April 14th and charged for mutilating genitalia of two 7 year old girls. A second Michigan doctor was also arrested a few days later for performing female genital mutilations on little girls.

  

Assistant U.S. Attorney Sara Woodward revealed the information in an attempt to convince the judge to “keep a doctor and his wife locked up”. The case involves serious allegations that two Minnesota girls were subject to genital mutilation at a “Livonia clinic” back in February as part of a “religious rite of passage” and were strictly instructed to keep the procedure a secret.

Detroit Free Press reports:

“Due to the secretive nature of this procedure, we are unlikely to ever know how many children were cut by Dr. (Jumana) Nagarwala,” Woodward said, referring to the lead defendant in the case,  later adding, “The Minnesota victims were not the first victims.”

. . .

The government believes the three defendants, all members of a local Indian-Muslim sect, subjected numerous girls to genital cutting procedures over a 12-year period. To date, the government says it has identified eight victims — including the two Minnesota girls — though Woodward said the government estimates there could be as many as 100 victims. She said that’s a conservative estimate, and that it’s based on on  Dr. Attar’s alleged admission to authorities that he let Nagarwala use his clinic up to six times a year to treat children for genital rashes.

REPORT: Three Muslim Girls Stab, Punch, and Kick Nursery Worker in London, Shout ‘Allah Will Get You!’ (VIDEO)

London – A nursery worker is suffering from broken ribs and is in need of stitches after being stabbed in an attack by three Muslim girls shouting “Allah will get you”.

Karrien Stevens, the person who runs Little Diamonds Nursery in Hermon Hill, London, claims a lady on her staff was kicked, punched, and stabbed with a “Stanley knife” while heading to work earlier this morning.

Katie, the victim of the brutal attack, was heading to work walking down a street in northeast London when she was approached by people brandishing a knife. They attacked her from behind, stabbed her in the arm and chanted “Allah”, but the police are not calling this a terrorist incident.

Daily Mail reports:

Nearby schools sent out emails telling parents they were on ‘lockdown’ after the attack at about 9.30am.

The nursery boss said the victim, who is in her 30s, described the attackers as ‘Asian girls’. They ran off when a man came to the rescue and walked her to her workplace.

‘After it happened she was very shook up, very emotional, but she’s in hospital now,’ Ms Stevens said.

‘She’s had stitches and had some cracked ribs but she’ll be fine, she’s going to be discharged later today.’

Professors at ‘Critical Race Theory’ Conference: ‘Diversity of Opinion’ Is ‘White Supremacist Bullsh*t’

Professors spewed racist, divisive bigotry at a conference hosted by “Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis” that specifically targeted the white race.

Professors called whiteness “inherently violent” and said that “diversity of opinion” is “white supremacist bullsh*t”. These professors are uneducated, obviously, and also completely narrow-minded while staying completely intellectually vapid.

The conference was held between May 31 and June 2, and was organized by the “Critical Race Studies in Education Association” (CRSEA), an organization with even more nonsense credo that hopes to bring together an “interdisciplinary consortium of experts who recognize global implications of race and education for minoritized people.” By the way, “minoritized” is not a generally accepted word and is another made up construct by race-baiting pseudo-intellectuals.

According to the website, these are the following goals of CRSEA:

“As a community, we are committed to (1) countering and combating systemic and structural racism with scholarship and praxis, (2) recognizing the multiple locations of oppression and the myriad manifestations and effects of their intersections and (3) co-constructing liberating knowledge that facilitates collective agency to transform schools and communities.”

Professor Michael Dumas, who spoke at the event, is quoted on Twitter as having said:

“Whiteness has already been constructed against blackness. There is no virtue in whiteness, it is inherently violent”

Another Dumas quote:

“Whiteness and the United States knows itself through the violence and death of the subordinated”

A third:

“There is no position of Whiteness [sic] that isn’t already violent! – Michael Dumas”

Professor David Stovall is quoted as having said the following:

“The term ‘diversity of opinion’ is white supremacist bullshit” and “white tears are an act of physical and political violence”

Professor James Sheurich is quoted as having said:

“Research is a colonial, white supremacist, elite process”

Campus Reform reports:

Berry explained to Campus Reform that the “notion of being ‘slapped into wokeness’ is one where an individual comes to gain [a] level of understanding about others’ oppression by experiencing oppression,” saying this is “especially true for those socially marginalized” people “who subscribe to respectability politics.”

“The proverbial ‘slap’ is the incident of marginalization,” she added. “The ‘wokeness’ is the realization that regardless of your privilege, marginalization can occur.”

One attendee, a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Chicago, concluded her time at the conference by noting that she’s “happy” since she managed to collect “a few white tears.”

WATCH: Racist ‘Black Lives Matter’ Leader Yells At Tucker, Looks Like an Uneducated Fool

Rarely does someone so arrogant and ignorant get a chance to talk like this on a national news program.

But this Black Lives Matter leader takes the cake.

Lisan Durden joined Tucker Carlson on Tuesday night to defend segregated parties based on race.

The following is a partial transcript: 

Tucker Carlson: “Thanks for coming on.”

Lisa Durden: “Thank you, good to see you again. You’re doing well.”

Tucker Carlson: “Thank you. I was confused by this, because I thought the whole point of Black Lives Matter, one of the points would be to speak out against singling people out on the basis of their race and punishing them for that, cause you can’t control what your race is, and yet, they seem to be doing that. Explain that to me.”

Lisa Durden: “What I say to that is: ‘Boo, hoo, hoo’, you white people are angry because you couldn’t use your white privilege card to get invited to the Black Lives Matters’ all black Memorial Day celebration – wow! Let me contextualize that for you–”

No, you don’t need to contextualize anything for anyone considering your logic is nonexistent and your racism abundant.

Lisa Durden continued:

Tucker Carlson: “First of all, I don’t want you to contextualize, I wanna ask–”

Lisa Durden: “I need to contextualize cause–”

Tucker Carlson: “You’re attacking people on the basis of their race . . . [she rants more nonsense] I’m not going to let you filibuster past my question. Hold on, Lisa . . . [she continues to make a fool of herself] . . . I don’t wanna shut this down, but I will. Okay, I’m not mad at that, I just have a really simple question–”

Lisa Durden: “Okay, I’m ready.”

Tucker Carlson: “If you don’t like people excluding others on the basis of their race, in this society we agree that that’s bad, I agree it’s bad, you agree it’s bad, why are you doing it and why are you defending it?”

Lisa Durden: “White folks crack me up, all-uv-uh-sudden when we wanna have one day for black folks to focus on ourselves, but you’ve been having ‘white day’ forever, you don’t say the words anymore cause you know it’s politically incorrect, but you’ve had an all-white Oscars, all these movies with all-white actors movie after movie after movie, all-white TV shows with white casts over and over and over again…

She then rants about “The Bachelorette” . . .

Tucker Carlson: “I hope you’re not speaking for anyone else, I hope there aren’t a lot of people in this country who agree with you . . .”

Lisa Durden: “Well, my name is Lisa Durden, so I’m speaking for Lisa Durden.”

Tucker Carlson: “I just hope there aren’t people watching who agree with you, cause what you’re saying is so hostile, and separatist, and crazy, and such a basic violation of what I thought we all agreed on, which is you don’t attack people for things they can’t control, namely their race . . .”

She goes on to rant and talk over Tucker for the duration of the five minute interview.

REPORT: Saudi Arabia Gives 24-Hour Ultimatum to Qatar, Experts Warn Military Conflict Looms

Following the imposition of a naval blockade, Saudi Arabia is giving Qatar a 24-hour ultimatum, starting this evening, to comply with 10 conditions.

Among the key demands made by Saudi Arabia is the insistence that Qatar sever ties with the Muslim Brotherhood, as well as Hamas.

Little information is out yet about the ultimatum and SkyNews Arabia first tweeted out the existence of the 24-hour ultimatum.

ZeroHedge reports:

Speaking to Al Jazeera, analyst Giorgio Cafiero of Gulf State Analytics, a geopolitical risk consultancy based in Washington, DC, said: “I think the Kuwaitis as well as Omanis … fear the prospects of these tensions escalating in ways which could undermine the interest of all six members of the GCC.

“There are many analysts who believe that a potential break-up of the GCC has to be considered right now.”

“If these countries fail to resolve their issues and such tensions reaches new heights, we have to be very open to the possibility of these six Arab countries no longer being able to unite under the banner of one council,” said Cafiero.

He added that if tension escalates, some have warned of a “military confrontation”.

DISGUSTING: California County Brags That Nearly HALF of Their Population Is On Medi-Cal

California – Stanislaus County is openly bragging through public billboards that nearly half of their population is on Medi-Cal.

Medi-Cal is a program that services individuals whose income is below 138% the federal poverty level. Numerous California counties fit that description and according to a 2015 report, around 32.4% of California’s population are enrolled in Medi-Cal. Counties like Stanislaus or Merced make up some of the larger percentages of the overall population’s enrollment.

A billboard was spotted in Modesto, California in Stanislaus County that proudly announces the fact that 44% of Stanislaus is covered by Medi-Cal with a hashtag at the bottom saying “#StayLoud” in an act of idiotic “resistance”.

Stanislaus County is PROUD of the fact that nearly half of their population make 138% less than the federal poverty level, that’s pitiful and embarrassing. That’s spin. That’s the inversion of logic to suit a socialist, Marxist mentality. California’s fate is in the hands of ignorant communists and it is endlessly disappointing.

REPORT: Comey’s Thursday Hearing Will Be Only Public Testimony Before Senate Intel Committee

Former FBI Director, James Comey will only appear publicly once before the Senate Intelligence Committee, according to Chairman Richard Burr.

Burr spoke to reporters Tuesday, commenting:

“I don’t know what he’s going to talk about. I know he accepted our invitation and he expressed that this would be the only public hearing he would hold . . .”

Comey previously turned down an invitation to publicly testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

The Hill reports:

Fired FBI Director James Comey’s hotly-anticipated testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday will be his only public testimony, according to Chairman Richard Burr (R-N.C.).

Chairman Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) has hinted that the committee “could” subpoena the former director.

Together with ranking member Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), he warned that his committee won’t be sidelined and the two sent a flurry of statements following Comey’s refusal, noting their committee has jurisdiction over the FBI.

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), alongside Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) reiterated Tuesday that they wanted to see Comey appear before that committee as well.

REPORT: Natural Gas, Not Terrorism, is the Reason for the Regional Shunning of Qatar

A coalition of Saudi-led states have cut ties with Qatar following President Trump’s visit and their realization that Qatar was funding terrorists.

None of this is shocking, however, and it couldn’t be more fortuitous overall for Saudi Arabia and their allies in the region to benefit economically. A wonderful report from ZeroHedge argues that the “real reason behind the diplomatic fallout may be far simpler” than just the financing of terror, and may not have to do at all with the financing of terror. Qatar dominates the region in regards to natural gas.

ZeroHedge uses the example, with evidence “going back as far as 2012”, that shows one of the major reasons for the Syria proxy war being competing gas pipelines with Qatar and Russian interests in the region that would make them favor the Assad government, rather than a puppet regime.

Bloomberg breaks down the surface smoke-and-mirrors approach taken by the Saudi-led states to pass this new Gulf crisis off as a terror related cutting of ties. Bloomberg asserts that by isolating Qatar, Saudi Arabia is still acting in vengeance on their long history with Qatar and that their relationship is completely predicated upon natural gas.

Qatar’s rise is similar to the Saudi’s in that when Qatar first were able to get a shipment of natural gas off in 1995, they experienced a windfall similar in scope to the Saudis with crude oil. Qatar is now a regional powerhouse in regards to natural gas and their wealth is sustained through this commodity.

ZeroHedge reports:

And since it all boils down to who has the most leverage as this latest regional “balance of power” crisis unfolds, Qatar could simply take the Mutual Assured Destruction route, and halt all pipeline shipments to its neighbors crippling both theirs, and its own, economy in the process, to find just where the point of “max pain” is located.

FLASHBACK: Sadiq Khan Vigorously Defended Convicted Terrorists in 2002 (VIDEO)

Sadiq Khan vigorously defended terrorists in the past and he is still doing that to this very day as Mayor of London.

Sadiq Khan lashed out at President Trump earlier for criticizing his ridiculous response to the recent London terror attacks. Khan didn’t even mention Islam. He showed more enthusiasm while defending those terrorists than defending Londoners!

A clip resurfaced from 2002 that shows then Lawyer, Muslim Sadiq Khan, defending convicted Islamic terrorists who attempted to revive the Islamic Liberation Party in Egypt.

The video, via Josh Caplan of Vessel News, shows Khan defending terrorists. At the beginning of the video, Muslims in the street shout “Allahu Akbar!”:

“There is no evidence at all against the three British men, the only evidence against them is these confessions. We now have unequivocal proof that the confessions were obtained under duress and under torture – as there is no evidence against the men, the men need to be released straight away and sent back home to their families.

The Egyptian government and the state prosecutor have made a terrible mistake. They can correct that mistake by releasing the men now . . . What we’re concerned about is they’re compounding their mistake by continuing to detain them and having this farce of a trial, this is in breech of Egyptian’s [sic] own very important law, it has a proud history of being the custodians of law and justice . . .”

VIDEO:

The following is an excerpt from a Chicago Tribune article at the end of the video:

An Egyptian court on Thursday convicted 26 people, including three Britons, of trying to revive an outlawed Islamic group and sentenced them to up to 5 years in prison.

The three Britons–Ian Malcolm Nisbett, Maajid Nawaz and Reza Pankhurst–were each sentenced to 5 years. One of the 26 was convicted in absentia.

The defendants, first arrested in April 2002, were accused of attempting to revive Hizb-ut-Tahrir, or Islamic Liberation Party, which was banned by the government after an alleged failed coup in 1974.

Lawyers for the defendants said the group was only studying the ideologies of the Islamic Liberation Party and not recruiting others to follow its thinking.

Also, BBC wrote an article in 2002 documenting Sadiq Khan defending the convicted terrorists:

The lawyer representing three Britons accused of promoting an illegal Islamic group in Egypt has attacked the prosecution case against them as “trivial” and “irrelevant”.

Sadiq Khan, representing Ian Nisbet, Reza Pankhurst and Maajid Nawaz, said books included in the evidence could all be found in public libraries.

The defendants are accused of promoting the goals of Hizb-ut-Tahrir or the Islamic Liberation Party – a group which is banned in many Middle Eastern countries.

But Mr Khan said: “So far the evidence against them has been trivial and irrelevant.”

MAGA! POTUS Tweets ‘We Need a TRAVEL BAN for Certain DANGEROUS Countries’

In the wake of the recent London terror attacks and the flurry of pro-Islam sentiments from oblivious liberals, now – more than ever – we need the proper restrictions put in place to protect our countrymen.

Earlier today, President Trump tweeted out our need for a travel ban following yet another Islamic terror attack on the West. London was under siege this weekend as Islamic terror swept across the once free city.

 

Of course the unhinged leftists attacked President Trump for his true leadership in such perilous times. In fact, the left showed more outrage over his tweets than the actual terror attack. Go figure!

President Trump is not one to back down to the PC police, so he tweeted AGAIN our need for a TRAVEL BAN for certain DANGEROUS countries:

“That’s right, we need a TRAVEL BAN for certain DANGEROUS countries, not some politically correct term that won’t help us protect our people!”

You can view his tweet below:

In this sentiment, the President hits on two key points:

  1. A travel ban is necessary for certain dangerous countries. Dr. Sebastien Gorka breaks down this logic in a recent interview with Chris Cuomo – a CNN fake news promoter. In the interview, Gorka declares that Indonesia and Egypt represent both the most populous Muslim country and the most populous Arab country, and yet neither are implicated in the travel ban. Furthermore, the travel ban names seven countries that the Obama administration previously flagged prior to President Trump assuming office.
  2. Political correctness impedes upon a nation’s ability to protect its citizens because it safeguards individuals and people groups that are simply unique to the American demographics, and in that, simply because a people group, country, etc. dresses differently or behaves differently, this doesn’t excuse them from being criticized, that foolish logic is what keeps getting innocent Westerners killed. “Political correctness” is a Soviet term and every time you hear it, think about what the Soviet Union did to its own people and how you have to fight against this lie wrapped in arrogance.

REPORT: Virtual Reality Wunderkind Is Developing AMAZING New Border Control Tech #MAGA

Palmer Luckey is the founder of Oculus, a virtual reality company, and is now pitching a whole new kind of tech to White House representatives.

His new idea revolves around border security and is extremely high tech and cost effective and could make POTUS Trump’s border wall more of a reality than any other potential contractor.

The system Luckey developed is able to identify differences between humans, coyotes, and drone activity, making it ridiculously more effective than the methods currently in place to detect border crossings.

Breitbart Tech reports:

Palmer Luckey is migrating from virtual realities to physical ones. His idea incorporates both LIDAR and Infrared sensors to watch the country’s borders. The tech could be mounted on poles along the perimeter, offering what he reportedly sees as a more cost-effective alternative to President Donald Trump’s promised wall.

“We need a new kind of defense company, one that will save taxpayer dollars while creating superior technology to keep our troops and citizens safer,” according to Luckey.

. . .

Luckey has been seeking funding for his plans from Trump campaign donor and transition team member Peter Thiel.”

WATCH: Arrogant CNN Host Cuomo Gets Schooled by Dr. Gorka on POTUS’s Travel Ban

Chris Cuomo is a self-inflated, arrogant, and generally misinformed amateur commentator and his observations and condescending tone only prove how dense he truly is.

In an interview with Dr. Sebastien Gorka, an expert on terrorism, Cuomo made a fool of himself. You are not capable of playing in the big leagues, Cuomo. You sound like a hobbyist without the facts. The following is a partial transcript from their discussion:

Cuomo: “It’s always been about who it targets, how it targets them, and whether or not that is what will keep us safe and you guys played games about it and said ‘it’s not a ban’, I could play you Sean Spicer right now, but you know it’s true . . . And then the President decides to be honest about it this morning – that is spin. You are the purveyor of spin because that was your message, that it wasn’t a ban, and it was untrue – that’s why I’m asking you.”

Gorka: “So, I guess President Obama was also a purveyor of spin with that calculation because the executive order is based upon the Obama White House analysis of the seven nations of greatest concern for immigration into America. Is he a purveyor of spin, Chris?”

Cuomo: “Well, that’s an interesting question, while I–”

Gorka: “It is, isn’t it?

Cuomo: “I like that you must get away from President Trump and his policies as quickly as–”

Gorka: “Not at all.”

Cuomo: “. . . blame Obama for everything, but if you look at the executive order–”

Gorka: “I’ll talk about it for the next hour.”

Cuomo: “I’m sure you would, and eloquently so, however, the facts are not your friend here, because that move, with the executive order from the Obama administration, was about travel to those countries. It was about who’s coming in and out and why. Your order is about Muslims, about targeting Muslims and keeping them out and allowing those who are not Muslim are carve [sic] out to come in.”

Gorka: “Let’s do a little bit of a “101”, let’s do a little “Trivial Pursuit” . . . What is the most populous Muslim nation in the world, Chris?”

Cuomo: “You tell me, these are your answers.”

Gorka: “No, no, you tell me, what is the biggest Muslim nation in the world?”

Cuomo: “No, you tell me, I wanna give you the opportunity to lay it out, go ahead, assume I know nothing . . .”

[Not hard to do, Chris . . .]

Gorka: “It’s Indonesia – I will assume you know nothing. What’s the largest Arab nation in the world?”

Cuomo: “You tell me.”

Gorka: “Egypt, okay? So if this had anything, and I mean anything, to do with race or religion, why would those two nations, the most populous Muslim nation, and the most populous Arab nation, not be included on the executive order? Explain that logic to me, because this is where your spin fails. This is where the fake news propaganda collapses, because if we had some dark, dread ulterior motive, then those are the two first nations you would put on the list, not the seven nations that the Obama White House identified as the greatest concern. So, please answer that question.”

Cuomo: “Well, first of all – I will, I will – uh, first, what the Obama administration did was target travel from places that were known as hubs for terror, uh, and that’s different from what you’re doing cause you’re targeting nationality. You could add Saudi Arabia to your list, 15 of the hijackers came from there, they’re not on your list, there’s speculation as to why, but instead of looking at who you didn’t involve, you must look for legal and policy purposes at who you did involve and those countries are all Muslim majority, you did a carve out for non-Muslims and that’s why it got struck down, originally, allegedly recognized as being overreaching by people like you, which is why you drafted a second one, which the President said he authorized and approved of and is now before the courts for scrutiny, so the intention is clear – that you wanted to target Muslims from those places. I see that your’e a little slow to want to own that.”

Gorka: “No, I’m still wondering why you didn’t answer why we didn’t include Indonesia and Egypt. You still haven’t answered the question–”

You can watch both videos that make up Gorka’s interview, unfortunately, in typical fake news CNN fashion, they cut out portions at just the right time to leave out Gorka’s reply and let Cuomo get a lot of the final word in:

The second video:

Chris Cuomo, you and the rest of your Marxist, blowhard, social justice warrior cohorts in the mainstream media need to realize this is not a fight against middle eastern people, it is a fight against Islam which breeds Islamic terrorism.

SHOCK VIDEO: CNN Creates #FakeNews in London Following Terror Attacks, Stages Anti-ISIS Muslim Protesters

A video released a day after the Islamic terror attacks in London show a CNN crew staging a scene with Muslims holding signs saying “ISIS Will Lose”.

The following is a screenshot of the signs:

The same crowd was used for the following AP post it appears – note the man with green around his neck in both pictures. This is how fake news spreads.

CNN’s Abu Dhabi Managing Editor, Becky Anderson’s original video was posted to her official Twitter account where she called the London terrorists a ‘handful of twisted fools hell-bent on taking lives’.

 

Below is a video of the behind-the-scenes work CNN did to stage the photo-op with Muslims holding up signs that read, ‘ISIS WILL LOSE’.

The original post came from Mark Antro, a Londoner who captured the video:

Mark Antro also tweeted out that BBC wanted to film it…

Antro also notes that white police officers walked out of the scene and were replaced with Asian officers:

REPORT: Muslim Savages Kill Civilians Attempting to Flee Islamic State Controlled Mosul Neighborhood

Dozens of bodies of civilians line the streets of an Islamic State-controlled neighborhood in Mosul.

The neighborhood is very close to the frontline with the Iraqi forces and those attempting to flee have been taken out by Islamic State fighters over the past two days.

The bodies of men, women, and children lie alongside their belongings and bags, which are scattered about the road that leads out of the Zanjili district. The Zanjili district is one of the three districts still under Islamic State control in Mosul.

Reuters reports:

“Over the past two days ISIS has been shooting people escaping this area,” said Dave Eubank from the Free Burma Rangers relief association, referring to Islamic State, speaking from a building overlooking the frontline in Zanjili.

“I saw over 50 dead bodies yesterday, we worked with the Americans to get smoke and an Iraqi tank, and followed behind them and we rescued one little girl and one man,” he told Reuters. “But there are still more.”

Hundreds of others managed to reach the government lines, some wounded and some carrying apparently dead bodies in blankets, crying and shouting. A man carried an unconscious child.

WATCH: Lunatic Maxine Waters Shoves Reporter After Being Questioned About Obama ‘I’m Out to Impeach the President’

Saturday, Democrat Congresswoman Maxine Waters angrily shoved a reporter after being questioned about Barack Obama.

Reporter Michael Tracey and his cameraman approached Maxine Waters in order to ask a few questions and she went off on an unhinged rant. Nothing shocking here, what is shocking, however, was her shoving the reporter’s microphone for no reason.

The following is a transcript of the back-and-forth between Tracey and idiot Rep. Maxine Waters:

Tracey: “You say Russia’s not our friend, was Obama mistaken to forge military cooperation with Russia in Syria and try to . . .”

Waters: “Look, you and I have a different agenda, young man. I’m out to impeach this President – get that straight. I’m out to impeach the President. I’m not gonna be diverted by people who are Obama haters.
