The point at which the grownups have to step in.

But when you see brutality, barbarity and a raucous chorus of open the city gates and welcome the barbarians into our midst, you have to step in. Sweden has already fallen to an invited in rape culture, Germany looks to be tottering on the brink of going the same way. Mainland Europe is in a war. All the red flares are going up into the night sky and being ignored, but as usual it’s the hardy natives offshore of the whole invasion who’re making a stand.
A president more concerned about transgender toilets in the schools we entrust our children to than any real problems. An establishment rush to grovel down before a minority religion that says it’s okay to beat women and mutilate the sex organs of girls before they’ve even reached puberty so only a man can enjoy an orgasm during the act of sex. I don’t care what particular religion it is, it’s wrong. Wrong is wrong.
Bending the knee to cultures that haven’t moved an inch in six centuries while in the meantime we’ve put men on the moon and are now looking at Mars. Forbidding people to show signs of their Christian faith while bending over backwards to accommodate barbaric rituals and mores that properly belong in the middle ages. Even the mother church in Rome represented by a shameful apologist arsehole has started to grovel. "

President Donald Trump 'slammed Malcolm Turnbull over refugee deal, accused him of trying to "ship the next Boston bombers" to the U.S. then HUNG UP on their hour-long call after just 25 minutes'

Daily Mail
A fuming President Trump reportedly told Mr Turnbull that the conversation was 'the worst call by far' he had taken that day, after 'boasting' about pleasant exchanges with Russian President Vladimir Putin and three other world leaders. 
President Trump reportedly ranted about the deal the Obama administration struck with Canberra to take 1250 genuine refugees from Nauru and Manus Island, telling Mr Turnbull: 'I don't want these people'.

Police arrest two students – one 'of Moroccan origin' - over the murder of six people shot dead in a Quebec City mosque carnage a day after Canadian PM condemned Trump immigration ban

Daily Mail
Two students including one of 'Moroccan origin' have been arrested for the slaughter of six people at a Quebec mosque on Sunday which came a day after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau condemned Donald Trump's Muslim travel ban. 
The gunmen opened fire on worshipers as they prayed at Quebec City Islamic Cultural Center at around 8pm last night in a terrorist attack that has since been branded 'cowardly' and 'barbaric'.
Witnesses claimed the masked killers shouted 'Allahu Akbar' in what sounded like Quebecois accents as they went on the rampage, killing six and leaving eight injured. "

Trump's immigration crackdown is a clear message to the Muslim world - get your own houses in order before you come to ours

Daily Mail
Whether Muslims want to acknowledge it or not, extremists commit atrocities in the name of Allah. They do it according to and in observance of their interpretation of their faith.
What has led us to this latest executive order is not only Islamic extremists knifing, shooting, stabbing and exploding peaceful citizens in the West, but also the abject failure of the wider Muslim community to denounce these vile acts.
It is troubling to many that after each terrorist act there is largely silence from the families and communities that raised the terrorists and from the mosques that they frequented. Imams seldom condemn terror. And in their silence, in the void, acceptance, encouragement even, is assumed."

Wrong Trump predictions due to omnipresent left-wing liars, propagandists, bullies

Luboš Motl's Reference Frame
Donald Trump has been elected the 45th president of the United States of America. Congratulations!

He may have flaws but as far as I can say, he represents a much better direction for the future of America – and the West – than his competitor. His victory – perhaps 300 to 240 electoral votes or so – is sound and he won the popular vote by a percentage point, too. And as Ann Coulter has observed, if only people whose grandparents already lived in the U.S. were voting, Trump would have safely won all 50 states in a landslide.    .........Now it looks simple and obvious. My claims that the polls were "just like in the case of Brexit" were totally right. The whole media and polling machinery systematically tried to make the "politically incorrect" choice look weaker in both cases. The differences of percentages differed by almost 10% between the average forecasts and the reality.  .....I've mentioned that the errors of the forecasts – which underestimated the Trump-Clinton difference by 5-10 points – obviously cannot be statistical errors. This mistaken forecast can't be due to some accidental noise, isolated random mistakes in the agencies' prediction of the voters' behavior. Trump was heavily underestimated in virtually every group that claimed to provide us with the information. The large inaccuracies have to be due to a systematic error. .........."

Why isn’t everyone on “the right” desperate to see Hillary lose?

This is from Mark Steyn: Laws are for the Little People.
Like everything else the Clintons touch, Comey’s FBI is hopelessly corrupted – and certainly more corrupt than J Edgar Hoover’s FBI, at least in the sense that Hoover was independent enough not to get rolled. The revelations of what happened reveal Comey to be a hack and a squish: he offered immunity to Hillary’s aides not to facilitate his investigation but to obstruct any further investigation; he allowed witnesses to Hillary’s crimes to serve as her “lawyers”; and he physically destroyed the evidence – that is, the laptops. A 6′ 8″ gummi worm would be more of a straight arrow.
Now come the latest revelations. Powerline’s John Hinderaker writes:
In the first page, an unidentified FBI employee says he was “pressured” to change the classification of an email to render it unclassified. This pressure came from someone within the FBI, who said he had been contacted by Undersecretary of State Patrick Kennedy, who “had asked his assistance in altering the email’s classification in exchange for a ‘quid pro quo.'” The quid pro quo was that, if the FBI would say the email was unclassified, the State Department would allow the FBI to “place more Agents in countries where they are presently forbidden.”
So, to add to the corrupt revenue agency and the corrupt justice department, we now have a corrupt national law enforcement agency and a corrupt foreign ministry – willing, indeed, to subordinate national security and its own diplomatic policy to the personal needs of Hillary Clinton. Needless to say, if you get your news from ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, The Washington Post, The New York Times, etc, etc, you will be entirely unaware of all this. Which is the way they plan on operating for the next eight years."

The life, and death, of a party.

A shining example of the declining influence of the legacy media is the storm this week over a decade old recording of Donald Trump making some lewd remarks. None of us have ever done anything like that, have we? After a firestorm of criticism by every organ of the media and being roundly condemned by all the old Republican dinosaurs who failed to stop him in the primaries, he comes out of Trump Towers the next day to be greeted by a large impromptu crowd of people cheering him on.
The beautiful people may have been thoroughly offended and scandalised by him, but the ordinary people couldn’t give a damn about the issue; they were just worried he’d cave under the pressure and withdraw from the race. He came out fighting rather than cowed, so the whole campaign of faux outrage by assorted media turnips, GOP dinosaurs and assorted SJWs essentially backfired on them all.
It is yet again a vivid illustration of how totally out of touch the GOP establishment are with popular sentiment. The last thing they should ever have done was to rush to condemnation and demand he withdraw, because it’s obvious he’ll never withdraw under any circumstances and his defiance of all the pressure he was put under gave him yet another chance to reprise his role as the plucky David up against the Republican/Media Goliath."

Google's "Fact Check" is a pathetic effort to distort the news

Luboš Motl's Reference Frame
At the end, the "Fact Check" label is a recipe or preparation for the censorship done by someone else. Some users of the Google News service are encouraged to only pick the officially "Fact-Checked" news. So from the viewpoint of those parties' readers, the non-Fact-Checked or negatively Fact-Checked articles are being censored. Is that really a good idea? Are you really sure that they can't convey an important idea or information that the people should be exposed to? Can't you see that due to the systematic collective bias of the self-appointed fact checkers, news being filtered in this way are becoming distorted as well?

It often looks to me that the left-wing media and their ideological soulmates are trying to restore the regime of the "only allowed opinion" that we have known in the totalitarian countries. But what these leftards are missing is that people in totalitarian societies were forced to behave as if they believed all the cr*p by aggressive sanctions, firing from jobs, and even prisons (and uranium mines).

Hillary's aßlickers, Google, and others: You just haven't conquered the full control over the citizens to the same extent to which the totalitarian machineries have done it. So you simply shouldn't expect that the result will be the same "unity of opinions" that was present in the totalitarian societies. Instead, Google may at most downgrade itself from a company that invented a great impartial algorithm to rate and order pages in the search pages to another company composed of activist leftards.

And that would be a truly sad case of degeneration because Google has done some great things.

Please, don't try to harm a particular candidate in the elections by these tricks and stop collaborating with all those whose self-evident goal is to do so. They're not honest, they're not impartial, they're not really more careful than others, they're not nice, and they are crippling your business. Thanks for your understanding, Google."

Can the EU survive Brexit?

Yet many of those who campaigned for a Leave vote from the Tory side are even less optimistic about what comes next for Brussels. “It’s doomed,” says Sir Bill Cash MP, chair of the European Scrutiny Committee and chief Maastricht rebel under John Major. “The monetary union system is full of internal contradictions and it can’t work. There’s no such thing as a one size fits all policy.” .....In other words, he reckons Britain has got out just in time. Collapse, he says, “is nearer than people think. The Greeks are a basket case, the Italians are in dire straits, the French economy is also in tatters, and Germany faces massive internal pressure from the AfD.”

EU Trades Trillions Outside Single Market

Guido Fawkes
People who really should know better are fetishising the EU ‘single market’. The single market is essentially a common regulatory regime. It is not necessary to be in the single market to trade across borders with EU member states. In fact the USA manages to do nearly two trillion dollars of trade with the EU annually without paying a penny for access to the ‘single market’, without having to accept uncontrolled immigration from Eastern Europe or being subject to any loss of sovereignty. Bear this in mind when you read hysterical articles in the newspapers… "

Erdogan’s overthrow of freedom

In Turkey, the enemies of freedom are winning. Crippling fines are imposed on media that criticise the government, and laws criminalising investigative journalism are used to arrest writers. The end result is the erosion of independent media and a creeping culture of cronyism. A recent report by English PEN, Journalism Under Siege, exposed the gravity of the crisis facing press freedom in Turkey. In 2015, 30 journalists were in prison, and another hundred had been detained in some way. Almost a thousand bans on publications were issued, and more then 42,000 websites were banned."

Terror is the new normal for Germany and France

Update: This piece was written yesterday and so is already out of date. This morning two armed men entered a church near Rouen during Mass.  They took the priest, two nuns and a number of congregants hostage. It appears that they slit the priest’s throat before themselves being killed by French security forces.  Nobody can think of any possible motive, though people claiming that attacking Christians at prayer is not a traditional Islamist practice have clearly not paid attention to Iraq, Syria, Nigeria, Pakistan, Egypt or any number of other countries around the world."
