Fascinating animation shows every single bomb the US-led coalition has dropped on ISIS



Animation shows all 32,000 bombs dropped on ISIS territory in two-year period

Location of every single air strike dropped by US-led coalition in Iraq and Syria

Graphic documents aerial assaults on ISIS from August 2014 to December 2018


A fascinating new video has documented every bomb dropped on Islamic State by the US-led coalition forces.


The animation shows the location of every single air strike in Iraq and Syria between August 2014 and December 2018.


All 32,000 bombs dropped have been plotted and marked on a graphic, showing where the strikes targeted during the fiercest periods of aerial bombardment.


The graphic shows that the first 185 air strikes, up until September 22, 2014, were dropped in Iraq, but by October 2, 84 strikes were made on Syrian land.


After a year of aerial bombardment a total of 3,930 bombs were dropped in Iraq and 2,425 on Syria.


The nearly two-minute clip condenses all the US-led alliance strikes across both countries.


It includes strikes during key battles of the offensive to clear ISIS from Iraq and Syria, such as the Battle of Mosul in October 2016 and in June the following year the bloody Battle for Raqqa - the de facto capital of ISIS-held territory.


The battle for Mosul was a huge military operation to recapture Iraq's second largest city, which lasted from November 2016 to January 2017.


By the time Iraqi government forces had recaptured the city, much of the historic city's buildings and infrastructure was destroyed, with ISIS sabotaging areas as its forces fled.


The Battle for Raqqa was named the 'Great Battle' due to the strategic significance of city, with as many as 500 US special forces troops operating in support of the campaign.


The clip also shows the siege of Kobane in September 2014, which saw ISIS militants try to capture the city.


The assaults led to a wave of some 500,000 displaced Kurds fleeing across the border to neighbouring Turkey.


In January 2015 US-backed forced including the YPG, the Free Syrian Army and the Peshmerga, along with US air strikes began to recapture the city.

MYSTERIOUS TURKISH COMPANY HELPED MADURO SELL $900M IN GOLD

Venezuelan Dictator Nicolas Maduro sold off some 40% of Venezuela’s gold reserves last year as he struggled to keep his floundering government afloat, according to Bloomberg.

But with the noose of US sanctions growing ever tighter, Maduro struggled to find buyers. Which is where a mysterious Turkish gold broker came into play.

In a report published Friday, Bloomberg revealed the role played by Sardes, a Turkish gold broker with just $1 million in assets, which sprang into existence shortly after Maduro visited Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Founded in January 2018, Sardes quickly saw the volume of gold it was handling explode. Shortly after it opened for business, Sardes imported $41 million of Venezuelan gold - the first such transaction involving Turkey and Venezuela in more than 50 years. The following month, it imported $100 million more.

And in a sign that the Venezuela crisis could lead to renewed tensions between the US and Turkey, BBG pointed out that this isn't the first time this has happened. It's also the latest sign that Turkey under Erdogan has unequivocally sided with China and Russia in opposing US interests

Migrants banned from Finnish schools and daycare centers after multiple child rape cases

The Finnish municipality of Oulu announces that migrants are no longer allowed to visit schools and daycare centers.

The reason is that parents have complained about so-called integration visits and feel worried about their children after the recent rape wave against young girls.

According to the Finnish police, the alleged perpetrators are male migrants who have come to the country in recent years and most of the rape victims are girls under the age of 15.

One of the places the media has highlighted in connection with the rape wave is the municipality of Oulu in North Ostrobothnia. In Oulu, the police are investigating at least ten migrants for serious sexual offenses against girls as young as ten.

As a result, parents have complained and expressed concern about how the municipality can allow the integration project ESIKOTO to continue.

ESIKOTO is an integration experiment where migrants visit schools and daycare centers to learn more about society through lessons and study groups. It is also supposed to promote multiculturalism.

However, now the municipal leadership chooses to meet the parents’ request and end the integration project.

Mika Penttilä, who is responsible for education and culture in the municipality, confirms that they, together with the organisers of the project have decided that there will be no more visits.

Recently, media reports on sexual offenses have also shown new crime statistics in the municipality of Oulu. Arto Karnaranta, Deputy Chief of Police, explains that sexual offenses in only one year – between 2017 and 2018, have increased by 20 percent.

Feminism Is A Disease – And Masculinity Is The Cure

It seems these days like everyone and their genderfluid grandma has some “profound” insight into the minds and world of men. Men and masculinity are spoken of in the media with sharp tones of fear mixed with disdain, as if we are a dangerous aberrant genetic anomaly that needs to be studied under a special microscope that will protect the observer from being influenced by our vitriolic pheromones. The problem is, most of these “experts” on manhood are not men at all, or, their observations of male behavior are tainted with deep-seated resentments. That is to say, they are hardly objective.

I recently came across an article by The Atlantic titled ‘Psychology Has A Healthier Approach To Building Healthier Men’. Written not long after the embarrassing failure of Gillette’s “Toxic Masculinity” ad campaign, I assume The Atlantic like many other mainsNWOtream media outlets is attempting to rally the leftist troops to defend an ideological partner in crime. YouTube itself has even been aiding Gillette by removing dislikes from the video’s vote count, which just goes to show that YouTube (owned by Google) is not a business but a propaganda machine, pure and simple.

As I’ve noted in past articles on the psychology not only of globalists, but the useful idiots on the political left they like to exploit, these kinds of people often exhibit many of the traits of narcissistic sociopaths. It has been my observation that narcissistic sociopaths tend to come to the aid of other narcissistic sociopaths when they are facing discovery or prosecution. They are not as isolated from each other as many assume. They do in fact “organize”, and act to help each other as long as there is mutual benefit. If one vampire is hunted down by the villagers with their pitchforks, they know that ALL vampires might eventually be hunted down.

Secret group seeks medical panel to judge the mental health of Trump and other candidates

A secretive working group is devising a plan to create a medical panel that would screen the health of the president and candidates in the hopes of determining that President Trump is not fit for office or stopping another like him. The public face of the five-person group, most of whom have decided to remain anonymous, is Dr. Bandy Lee, a Yale University psychiatrist who edited a controversial book of essays concluding Trump is dangerous to the country because he has shown he is mentally unfit.

“Based on the experience with the current president, we are calling for regular fitness for duty exams on presidential and vice presidential candidates, preferably as a requirement sometime before they take on the job, and even preferably before they run,” Lee said.

Lee's group realizes that Congress won't enact such a requirement, which would include annual exam every year after winning the election, and instead is looking to demand that candidates voluntary submit to being examined by the panel. They plan to publish a proposal and make the case that the medical panel is needed to prevent mentally unfit people from entering high office.

“We would like to keep this entire process as voluntary and confidential as possible, but also in a democracy we believe the public has a right to know if a dangerous person is pursuing the presidency,” Lee said.

The book Lee edited, The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump, outlined a model for an independent medical panel. The idea in the book was for Congress to create the panel, but now the group is finding a way to set it up without lawmakers. The panel would have three neuropsychiatrists — one clinical, one academic, and one military — one clinical psychologist, one neurologist, and two internists. The mental and physical evaluations would be confidential, unless candidates choose to reveal them or insist on running despite unfitness. The medical experts would be nominated by an outside organization, such as the highly respected National Academy of Medicine, and serve for six-year terms, with one rotated out and replaced every year. “It’s just like having a medical checkup to make sure you qualify before going ahead,” Lee said. “Any reasonable person should be able to submit.”

The Washington Examiner asked the campaigns of the 10 Democrats who have announced their candidacy whether they would submit to the medical exam and whether they planned to release their health records. Inquiries also were sent to the Trump campaign and to Howard Schultz, the former Starbucks CEO who said he’s considering running as an independent. The campaign for Andrew Yang, a former official in the Obama administration and tech entrepreneur, was the only one to respond. "I do believe that the president, and candidates for the office, should undergo a physical and mental health examination," Yang said. "I'd be happy to submit to an examination by an independent body, with the overall conclusion as to fitness to serve being publicly shared. I also believe this should be a regular occurrence throughout the presidency.”

Woman Found Dead Days After Accusing Bill Clinton Associate
of Running a “Sex Slave Farm” – Death Ruled “Suicide”


Sabrina Bittencourt, 38, died at her home in Barcelona just days after accusing John of God – real name Joao Teixeira de Faria – of running a ‘sex slave farm’.

She claimed young girls were held captive in a farming operation which exported babies on the black market.

The women would be murdered after ten years of having babies in the alleged scheme run by the 77-year-old celebrity faith healer, who was arrested last year after hundreds of women accused him of abuse, she said.

Ms Bittencourt left Brazil and was forced to live under protection after receiving death threats.

Her eldest son Gabriel Baum confirmed her death, writing on Facebook: ‘She took the last step so that we could live. They killed my mother.’

France Refuses to Accommodate Economic Migrants From German NGO Ship - Reports

A group of migrants disembarked in Sicily earlier in January, prompting the Italian government to launch an investigation into the organisation Sea Watch, which owns the ship.

According to Sky TG24, Paris refused to take in part of 47 migrants on board the ship of the German NGO Sea Watch. The broadcaster reported, citing sources in the Italian interior Ministry that France stated it would "only take people who need protection, not economic migrants".

It should come as no surprise that to get the news to users as quickly as possible many companies automate large portions of reporting.

Did The Department Of Justice Protect Brenda Snipes From Prosecution For Ballot Destruction?

"A vast caldera of public rage has rightfully been aimed at Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and Brenda Snipes over the last few years. However, it is important to remember that Wasserman-Schultz and Snipes are merely the public faces of an extensive, deeply problematic system of corruption. It is then also essential to understand who, and what mechanisms, have allowed figures like Wasserman-Schultz, Snipes, the Awan brothers, and others to go unprosecuted…"

"…In stories like this, the image painted of the Department of Justice is one of a federal agency that functions in a manner far more akin to organized crime than to a governmental body. The DOJ’s refusal prosecute the Awans, and Rosenstein’s alleged decision to prevent legal consequences for Brenda Snipes shows us that corruption allowed to stagnate in Broward County affected the whole country. The public could, therefore, be forgiven for directing a portion of their collective wrath towards the DOJ for enabling such criminal behavior.

If the Department of Justice refuses to prosecute such crimes as detailed in the Awan scandal and as committed by Snipes, how can the public hope to hold their government accountable for election interference and other forms of corruption?"

The Latest: Border Officer Shoots Driver at Arizona Crossing

A federal officer stationed at an Arizona border crossing shot a driver who refused to stop and allegedly tried to run down the officer on the way into Mexico, according to local reports.

Around 7 p.m. local time Thursday, an unnamed U.S. Customs and Border Protection officer working at the DeConcini Crossing in Nogales, Ariz., told a vehicle headed southbound to pull over, according to a CBP statement.

CBP said the ongoing investigation into the matter prevented the agency from sharing more information.

Nogales Mayor Arturo Garino told the Arizona Daily Star that a pickup truck raced into Mexico after being told to stop and attempted to run over the federal officer.

The CBP officer shot at least once at the driver, but the truck continued through the port and into Mexico before crashing on the other side. Mexican federal police pulled the driver out of the truck. A passenger was arrested and unharmed in the shooting.

CBP said the driver had a gunshot wound and was taken to a hospital in Mexico's Sonora state. It wasn't clear whether the man survived the shooting.

The port was shut down for four hours and traffic was redirected at a nearby Nogales crossing. Nogales police were redirecting traffic to the Mariposa Port of Entry before reopening the DeConcini port at around 11 p.m.

The border agency's Office of Professional Responsibility and Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations are both investigating the officer's use of force.

Official: Gov. Northam tells staff he's staying

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/official-gov-northam-tells-staff-hes-staying/ar-BBTlSEp?ocid=spartanntp

RICHMOND, Va. — A senior official in Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam's administration says the governor has told his top staff that he does not plan to resign over a racist photo despite intense pressure to step down.

The official says Northam told his Cabinet during a Friday afternoon meeting that he intends to stay. The official was not authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Northam has faced widespread calls to step down over after his medical school yearbook page with a racist photo surfaced last week. It shows one person in blackface and another in a Ku Klux Klan robe and hood.

Northam said last Friday that he was in the picture. On Saturday, he denied he was in the picture and said he was not immediately resigning but left his long-term fate unclear.

Trump Busts Adam Schiff for Hanging Out with Fusion GPS Founder In Aspen

Donald Trump ridiculed House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff Friday for reports that he spent time with Fusion GPS Founder Glenn Simpson in Aspen.

“Now we find out that Adam Schiff was spending time together in Aspen with Glenn Simpson of GPS Fusion, who wrote the fake and discredited Dossier, even though Simpson was testifying before Schiff,” Trump wrote on Twitter, citing a report by writer John Solomon in a column for The Hill.

Both men told Solomon that their encounter at the Aspen security conference was brief, despite photographs of the two together in July of 2018.

Apple and Google Accept Saudi Smartphone App Which Tracks Women’s Movements

Apple and Google are facing criticism for hosting a Saudi Arabian smartphone app on their platforms which allows men to track women’s movements and “stop them leaving the country.”

According to Insider, the app, named Absher — which is available on Google’s Play Store and Apple’s App Store — is “a government web service which allows men to specify when and how women can cross Saudi borders, and to get close to real-time SMS updates when they travel.”

The SMS feature reportedly notifies men “when a woman uses her passport at a border crossing or airport check-in.”

Sen. Amy Klobuchar’s Mistreatment Of Staff Scared Off Candidates To Manage Her Presidential Bid

But some former Klobuchar staffers, all of whom spoke to HuffPost on condition of anonymity, describe Klobuchar as habitually demeaning and prone to bursts of cruelty that make it difficult to work in her office for long.

It is common for staff to wake up to multiple emails from Klobuchar characterizing one’s work as “the worst” briefing or press release she’d seen in her decades of public service, according to two former aides and emails seen by HuffPost.

Although some staffers grew inured to her constant put-downs (“It’s always ‘the worst,’” one said sarcastically, “‘It was ‘the worst’ one two weeks ago”), others found it grinding and demoralizing. Adding to the humiliation, Klobuchar often cc’d large groups of staffers who weren’t working on the topic at hand, giving the emails the effect of a public flogging.

What is indisputable, however, is that Klobuchar’s office consistently has one of the highest rates of staff turnover in the Senate. Klobuchar’s rate of turnover ranked No. 1 in an analysis of all Senate staff salaries between 2001 and 2016, conducted by LegiStorm, a widely used database of congressional staff salaries.

-Klobuchar’s anger…

-Many people who have worked with Klobuchar or interacted with her and her staff say her treatment of staff goes beyond the normal expectations of excelling in a job. Three former staffers said Klobuchar has tasked them or their co-workers with performing personal errands, such as making her personal appointments, washing dishes at her home or picking up her dry cleaning. Senate staff are generally prohibited by Senate ethics rules from performing personal duties for members.

-When you have people who don’t want to work for you, you can’t be as effective,

Klobuchar, who plans to make an announcement about a potential presidential bid on Sunday in Minneapolis, has spent the past several months positioning herself to run for president (Literally gives me the dry heaves…what a nightmare!)

New attack on Karl Marx – grave in London ‘damaged beyond repair’ in hammer attack


A memorial to the Father of Communism – Karl Marx – in London has been attacked with a hammer and ‘will never be the same again’, a charity has said.

The marble plaque at Highgate cemetery which carries Marx’s name, along with his wife and grandson, had been chipped by a blunt instrument likely to have been a hammer.

The Friends of Highgate Cemetery Trust, who run the cemetery in north London, said the monument was hit over in what looked like ‘a deliberate attack on the memory of Karl Marx himself’.

Ian Dungavell, the trust’s chief executive, said: “His name has been singled out, although the person wasn’t particularly coordinated.”

The ‘deliberate and sustained attack‘ on the Grade I-listed monument, which puts it on a par with the most important buildings in the country, was “very upsetting”, he said. “It will never be the same again, and will bear those battle scars for the future.”

The monument is owned by the Marx Grave Trust, which is represented by the Marx Memorial Library in Clerkenwell, which will make any decisions about future repairs, Mr Dungavell said.

But he added that the monument’s Grade I-listing means ‘you don’t rush in to do these things quickly’.

‘We will be seeking specialist advice.’

A Met Police spokesman said: “Police were called to reports of criminal damage to a memorial in Highgate Cemetery, N6. No arrests have been made. Initial inquiries have been completed and at this stage the investigation has been closed. If any further information comes to light, this will be investigated accordingly.”

Every time you ask a question like this, the list of dangerous weapons grows larger in the UK.
Really, those folks are fucked up! They need a cleansing over there!

Vatican to rule next week on defrocking of disgraced U.S. cardinal: sources

In July, McCarrick, 88, became the first Catholic prelate in nearly 100 years to lose the title of cardinal. The allegations against him date back to decades ago when he was still rising to the top of the U.S. Church hierarchy.

McCarrick, who rose to be a power broker in the American Church as Archbishop of Washington, D.C. from 2001 to 2006, is living in seclusion in a remote friary in Kansas. He has responded publicly to only one of the allegations, saying he has “absolutely no recollection” of an alleged case of sexual abuse of a 16-year-old boy more than 50 years ago. He has not responded publicly to separate allegations by several priests and ex-priests who have come forward alleging he used his authority to coerce them to sleep with him when they were adult seminarians studying for the priesthood.

Nielsen bypasses environmental rules, orders border wall construction in San Diego

The Department of Homeland Security announced Friday that Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen has given U.S. Customs and Border Protection permission to ignore environmental and land regulations to expedite construction of a secondary barrier, or wall, that runs parallel to the primary one between Tijuana and San Diego.

The secondary wall is meant to run for 12 miles and is expected to be 18 feet tall, a sector spokesman told the Washington Examiner during a visit to the region last year.

The Army Corps of Engineers awarded the project in December.

The San Diego Sector is unique as a southwest border sector in that it has had a double wall for two decades, but it has still seen active smuggling efforts and increased illegal immigration in recent years. Despite the double wall, people were easily getting over or through both of them, prompting the sector to step up its infrastructure.

In fiscal year 2018, the Border Patrol's San Diego Sector, one of nine on the southern border, arrested 38,000 people. In the first four months of 2019, the region has hit nearly half the total number apprehended last year.

"Tactical infrastructure, when combined with the appropriate technology and personnel, significantly reduces the amount of illegal border entries and enhances the Border Patrol’s ability to secure the border," DHS said in a statement.

The "primary" wall, or that which is closest to Mexico, stretches 14 miles from Imperial Beach on the Pacific Ocean past the Otay Mesa port of entry and into the mountains, where it is difficult to travel on foot or vehicle.

The main wall was installed in 1991. It consists of thousands of 8- to 10-foot-tall corrugated steel "landing mats." The mats were surplus material from the Vietnam War that had been meant to serve as helicopter landing pads in rice paddies.

In the early 1990s, agents were making more apprehensions of illegal entrants in their 60-mile stretch of the border than all apprehensions seen across the border last year. Prior to 1991, barbed wire fencing was all there was to stop people from entering the country outside of a port, and it wasn't installed continuously across the border. In 1997, San Diego began installing a secondary wall.

In 2016, San Diego learned it would receive federal funding to replace the landing mats with bollard fencing, which consists of vertical steel posts that have been planted in the ground.

President Trump campaigned in 2016 to build a "beautiful" wall between the U.S. and Mexico. When he took office in January 2017, the barrier between both countries' 1,954-mile border covered approximately one-third of that space.

Last April, CBP announced several projects that would replace and build new barriers on 100 miles.

Friday's decision to skirt environmental review processes is the third since the fall. Late last year, Nielsen waived regulations for border projects in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas.

Nielsen stated in the Federal Register memo that she had the authority to make the exceptions under the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996, which states a chief can waive all legal requirements if a wall, road, or other infrastructure is immediately needed.

Sad,

Illinois’ Oppressive New Laws Putting Gun Shops Out of Business

New laws duplicate Federal regs & add huge expenses.

In a post on his shop’s Facebook page, Walnut Creek Shooters Supply owner Mick Moore informed customers of his decision to liquidate his firearms and ammo, sell off his remaining inventory, and “go hunting and fishing and enjoy… retirement.”

"I’ve worked 8 to 12 hrs a day for the last 8 years building my business as an honest and legal gun shop and put all the money back into inventory so i could provide what my loyal customers want. Never drawn a paycheck for my time. I send a nice check to the state of Illinois for sales tax every month. Now they want to add more hardships on all of the small local gun shops. There’s no way we can comply and stay in business…

I will be selling off my inventory of firearms and ammo and not replace them and discontinue those sales. Then I won’t need their firearm license to sell all the rest of the accessories and supplies I have in stock. Time to go hunting and fishing and enjoy my retirement. A very heart felt thank you to all my loyal customers and friends. Mick at Walnut Creek Shooters Supply."

It would appear their plan is working. The goal, of course, is to put gun sellers out of business in order to further restrict public availability of firearms by the law-abiding… and it’s working. The article explains that similar local laws have caused San Francisco to be gun-shop-less since 2015, and Seattle’s “sin taxes” on guns & ammo have pushed shop owners to either shut down or move to the suburbs.

No matter how you slice it, this sucks for everybody except the criminals on the street and the criminals elected to public office.

Pompeo Asked to Probe What's Going on with American Mercenaries

WASHINGTON – The top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee told Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that the U.S. needs to investigate reports of American mercenaries working abroad for possible violations of the law.

Frontier Services Group, which was created by Blackwater founder Erik Prince, days ago announced a preliminary deal with China to build a training center in Xinjiang. Up to a million Uyghurs have been imprisoned in government indoctrination camps in the region.

In October, Buzzfeed reported on the Delaware-incorporated Spear Operations Group using American mercenaries in a targeted assassination campaign in Yemen sanctioned by the UAE.

"These reports, if accurate, raise troubling questions about what roles some U.S. citizens are performing in supporting foreign governments in combat, human rights abuses, and political suppression," Ranking Member Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) wrote to Pompeo today. "They also raise questions about potential violations of U.S. law, and whether the Department of State, the Department of Defense, the FBI, and the Department of Justice are aware of these activities, have formally approved them, or are investigating these individuals for possible violations of U.S. law."

The senator added that "despite repeated inquiries and requests for a briefing on these matters by my staff, the department has yet to comply."

Seeking responses in writing, Menendez asked if the State Department knew about the reported assassination team or whether Erik Prince has a license pursuant to the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR).

"Has the Department of State issued any licenses or provided informal approval to Spear Operations Group, or any individuals affiliated with that entity, to carry out any military services in Yemen? If so, what activities are covered?" the letter continues. "Under the administration’s interpretation of U.S. law and regulations, does the provision of military or security services to foreign government entities require export licenses? If so, please provide the relevant legal interpretation, as well as a determination of whether the above-referenced U.S. entities have received, or se or other military, defense or security and related services to foreign governments."

should have received, licenses to provide these

Haitians want Pres. Jovenel Moise gone on the two-year anniversary of his inauguration.

Superior Court of Auditors published a report calling out more than a dozen former ministers and senior officials for poor economic management and the possible misappropriation of development funds loaned to the country from *Venezuela* since 2008.

ICE agents in North Carolina arrest hundreds of immigrants

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Hundreds of immigrants in the U.S. illegally were arrested this week in North Carolina after some local law agencies stopped cooperating with immigration enforcement, a federal official said Friday.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement regional director Sean Gallagher said the arrests resulted from what he termed “the dangerous policies of not cooperating with ICE,” The Charlotte Observer reported.

“This is politics over public safety at its worst,” Gallagher said at a news conference. It’s a change, he said, that gave the agency “no choice” but to conduct targeted enforcement operations like the one this week.

ICE officers have detained 200 people in North Carolina this week. Another 25 were detained at an arms manufacturer in Sanford. Gallagher said more such arrests are likely when ICE is restricted from accessing county jails.

“If they’re in the wrong place at the wrong time, my officers will take an enforcement action,” he said.

Since December, new sheriffs in Mecklenburg and Wake counties have reversed a policy that notifies ICE about the legal status of inmates in county jails. The Durham County Sheriff’s Office also ended the practice of honoring ICE detainers.

Charlotte City Council member Braxton Winston said he was threatened with arrest for trying to enter the building without media credentials during the news conference at the Department of Homeland Security office in Charlotte.

Speaking to reporters and activists outside the office, Winston said he was told by ICE official Robert Alfieri that the arrests represent a “new normal” because Mecklenburg County’s new sheriff, Garry McFadden, is not cooperating with federal immigration enforcement.

Migrants banned from Finnish schools and daycare centers after multiple child rape cases

The Finnish municipality of Oulu announces that migrants are no longer allowed to visit schools and daycare centers.

The reason is that parents have complained about so-called integration visits and feel worried about their children after the recent rape wave against young girls.

According to the Finnish police, the alleged perpetrators are male migrants who have come to the country in recent years and most of the rape victims are girls under the age of 15.

One of the places the media has highlighted in connection with the rape wave is the municipality of Oulu in North Ostrobothnia. In Oulu, the police are investigating at least ten migrants for serious sexual offenses against girls as young as ten.

As a result, parents have complained and expressed concern about how the municipality can allow the integration project ESIKOTO to continue.

Muslim Community Patrol ‘looks like Sharia police’ says former NYPD officer

A former NYPD officer and current host on NewsMaxTV says members of a new Muslim Community Patrol look more like “Sharia police” than civic-minded people concerned about the safety of their neighborhoods.

“Not at all comfortable with this. ‘Muslim Community Patrol’ in NYC, driving cars that look identical to NYPD RMPs. This looks a lot like Sharia Police. In Brooklyn,” former New York City officer John Cardillo tweeted along with a picture of a uniformed MCP member standing in front of one of the group’s two vehicles.

Sick: Aborted Baby Parts Fused Into Mice For ‘Frankenstein’ Experiments

Technocracy views human life on the same level as animals, so Technocrat scientists see no ethical dilemma in using aborted baby parts in medical experiments with animals. Planned Parenthood remains in the middle of this controversy. ⁃ TN Editor

Aborted babies are being used in macabre experiments in the US that involve grafting dead fetus parts onto mice which are then used to test drugs.

Documents seen by Sun Online outline procedures that involve cutting out glands and livers of unborn children and then fusing them onto lab rodents.

The use of aborted baby body parts and stems cells has sparked anger among anti-abortion groups in the United States and it has been dubbed “Frankenstein” science.

And shocking undercover footage has led to the Donald Trump administration to reassess if the practice should be continued at all.
Clinics are supposed to ask if they would like to donate tissue but it is unclear whether the parents are aware their dead children’s bodies are being used in this way.

But what is known is that abortion clinics are supplying the fetal body parts, although they are not allowed to sell them.
