UK: The Church Enables a Suicide Bomber~A jihad attack exposes asylum-seekers’ sham conversion TO CHRISTIANITY scam.



republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

A week ago Sunday over in Britain, as the nation was preparing to observe a moment of silence for Remembrance Day, a taxicab pulled up in front of Liverpool Women’s Hospital and exploded into flames. Moments later, the cab driver, David Perry, ran out of the car and explained that he had noticed that his passenger, who turned out to be an Iraqi migrant named Emad Jamil Al Swealmeen, was wearing an explosive belt, so he locked the cab, whereupon Swealmeen exploded his bomb inside it. This was just another day in modern, multicultural, diverse Britain, except for one odd detail: Emad Jamil Al Swealmeen converted to Christianity in 2017, in the same cathedral he had apparently planned to attack: he initially asked Perry to drive him there, but traffic was heavy, and so he opted to go to Liverpool Women’s Hospital instead. Swealmeen immediately became the poster boy for the moral equivalence crowd, the people who insist that all religions are equally capable of inciting their adherents to commit acts of violence. They were wrong, of course, but nonetheless, the Church of England was still complicit in Swealmeen’s suicide attack.

There were numerous indications that Swealmeen’s conversion was not sincere. Above all, he was spotted at a mosque “all day, every day” in the weeks leading up to his jihad suicide attack, and all through Ramadan as well. Converts from Islam to Christianity don’t generally hang around at the mosque all that much, but Swealmeen was still not on the radar of complacent and willfully ignorant British authorities, who evidently took his conversion at face value despite the fact that he was once arrested for carrying what was described as “a large knife.”

His conversion, obviously, is not likely to have been sincere, although he clearly fooled a lot of people. The Telegraph noted Tuesday that “concerns have been raised over the role Liverpool Cathedral has played in helping asylum seekers convert to Christianity in order to help their applications.” No kidding, really? Asylum seekers have a much better chance of having their applications for asylum accepted if they can argue that their conversion would put their life in danger back home. Mohammad Eghtedarian, a convert from Islam to Christianity who became an Anglican priest, explained: “There are many people abusing the system. I do understand there are a lot of mixed motives. There are many people abusing the system – I’m not ashamed of saying that.” And the Rev Pete Wilcox, a former Dean of Liverpool’s Anglican Cathedral, let the cat out of the bag when he admitted: “I can’t think of a single example of somebody who already had British citizenship converting here with us from Islam to Christianity.”

Christian Today reported back in January 2017 that in Germany, “migrants increase their chances of winning asylum in Germany if they are able to prove that they would face persecution if sent home to a Muslim country….They can do this by showing proof that they are Christian or have converted to Christianity.” Dr. Gottfried Martens of Trinity Lutheran Church in Berlin noted that “some Muslims come to his church and express interest in Christianity just to improve their chances of getting their asylum request approved.”

It is possible, however, that Emad Jamil Al Swealmeen’s conversion was sincere. He may have converted to Christianity and then returned to Islam, turning to jihad to make up for his sin of apostasy. Islam teaches that on the day of judgment, every individual’s good deeds and bad deeds will be placed on great scales; if the good deeds outweigh the bad deeds, one goes to paradise, but if the bad deeds outweigh the good deeds, one goes to hell (cf. Qur’an 21:47). Since Muhammad prescribed death for those who leave Islam (cf. Bukhari 9.84.57), apostasy is a very serious offense that can only be outweighed by an even greater good deed. And there is no deed greater than jihad: a hadith has a man asking Muhammad, “Instruct me as to such a deed as equals Jihad (in reward).” Muhammad replied, “I do not find such a deed.” (Bukhari 56.4.2785) If Swealmeen was going through a time of personal crisis and decided to return to Islam, he would have needed to expiate his great sin of apostasy

Another possibility: in January 2016, the Islamic State (ISIS) issued a manual entitled “Safety and Security Guidelines for Lone Wolf Mujahideen.” It told jihadis in the West to pretend to be Christians and stated: “It is permissible for you to wear a necklace showing a Christian cross. As you know, Christians – or even atheist Westerners with Christian backgrounds – wear crosses on their necklaces.”

The bottom line is that there is nothing in the Christian tradition that is remotely comparable to the Qur’an’s promise that those who are killed while killing infidels are guaranteed a place in paradise (9:111). The very fact that Emad Jamil Al Swealmeen became a suicide bomber is an indication that he is more a Muslim than a Christian. That has not, however, stopped those who insist, contrary to all evidence, that all religious traditions are equally capable of inciting violence from crowing over his apparent Christian conversion. The larger problem, of a growing population in Britain, Europe and North America that includes some people who believe it praiseworthy and meritorious to kill and be killed for Allah, remains unaddressed.

Build Back Better Act Offers Media Billions To Go After Republicans

Give the media $1.9 billion and they promise to stop Republicans from winning elections.



republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism.

Biden claims that the Build Back Better Act will help ordinary Americans, but the legislation, like so much in Washington D.C., is a collection of pork for corrupt special interests. One of those special interests is the media which suppressed negative stories about Biden and the Democrats, like the FBI investigation of Hunter Biden, while promoting disinformation, like the Steele Dossier, targeting President Trump: Biden’s opponent in the presidential election.

The media operates like a Democrat messaging operation and its partisanship has undermined its business model, especially for local news outlets which, unlike major national outlets, cannot simply ignore their existing readers and viewers to focus exclusively on radical urban leftists.

Congressional Democrats, with the complicity of some Republicans, had previously proposed media subsidy schemes that included tax credits for media companies, tax breaks for subscribing to papers, and even a $5,000 tax credit for taking out an ad in the local paper.

The media subsidy scheme in Biden’s Build Back Better Act offers $1.9 billion to the media with a payroll tax credit covering 50% of salaries, as much as $25,000, for the Democrat propagandists on media company payrolls, and another 30% over the next four years.

While the Democrats claim that this $1.9 billion special-interest giveaway to the media is helping "local news", it's capped at 1,500 employees. The Washington Post has only a little over 1,000 “journalists” on its payroll. The legislation is written in a typically convoluted fashion, so it’s not altogether clear if the premier propaganda outlet of the Democrats, owned by the richest man in the country, would qualify for these subsidies at a time when Americans are struggling to get by.

Lest there be any doubt that the so-called "local journalism" provision is a State Media scheme to subsidize hit pieces on Republicans, Democrats explained that's exactly what it's there for.

Rep. Earl Blumenauer touted the ability of "local journalism" to stop Republican candidates like  Edward Durr, a truck driver who spent $153 to defeat New Jersey Senate boss Steve Sweeney: the biggest Democrat power broker in the state.

“There was no opportunity for local media to provide even basic information about the candidates,” Rep. Blumenauer whined. “The guy would never have been elected if he had gotten any scrutiny at all.” By scrutiny, the leftist Democrat means hit pieces, of the kind that the media belatedly began generating after the truck driver’s unexpected election night win.

Give the media $1.9 billion in subsidies and they can stop the next truck driver from beating their Senate boss through lies, smears, intimidation, and disinformation campaigns.

If this dirty deal were any more corrupt, it would be taking place in a brothel.

But Democrats are not just relying on the innate biases of the media. One of the biggest dark money investments of their political machines has been fake news local operations.

Democrat groups like Report for America and Courier Newsroom have embedded subsidized reporters and created fake local news outlets to push leftist agendas. Report for America is funded by the usual Democrats megadonors, the Ford Foundation, the MacArthur Foundation, and the Knight Foundation, as well as by Big Tech monopolies like Google and Facebook.

Courier Newsroom, backed by the controversial Acronym/Pacronym network, had begun generating fake local news sites for the 2020 election with names like “UpNorth News” in Wisconsin. It's being rebooted with the backing of George Soros and LinkedIn founder Reid Hoffman who had previously been caught pushing fake news through the Alabama Project.

The Alabama Project had, in its own words, targeted the state's Senate election, by having "orchestrated an elaborate ‘false flag’ operation that planted the idea that the Moore campaign was amplified on social media by a Russian botnet.”

The LinkedIn co-founder apologized, claimed that he knew nothing and that it would never happen again. And here he is, alongside Soros, backing Good Information Inc. which will fund non-profit propaganda media and invest in for-profit media that pushes its political agenda.

Good Information Inc. is just a rebooted version of Courier Newsroom’s fake news network.

The Build Back Better Act’s $1.9 billion media subsidy isn’t just funding an industry aligned with the Democrats, but one that has become a false flag operation for its messaging apparatus.

The Dems might just as well add $1.9 billion in subsidies for their own political consultants.

The connection between the media’s political fake news operations and the pork isn’t even being disguised.

CNN’s Brian Stelter quotes “Report for America co-founder Steven Waldman, who has helped lead the drive for the tax credit”, saying, "It's a huge breakthrough for local news if it becomes law.” Report for America is indeed vocally advocating for the Democrat media subsidy. And it would be a “huge breakthrough” if part of the cost of Democrat messaging operations were being subsidized by American taxpayers freeing Dem megadonors to wage war elsewhere.

But the core business model of the leftist machine has been to not simply establish political operations that can swing elections, but figure out how to make them into permanent taxpayer-funded features of public life so they can move on to their next “startup”.

Waldman, like CNN and Report for America, not to mention many of RFA’s megadonors, operate out of New York City. Their interest isn’t in local news, it’s in winning elections. Local elections are now routinely swung by rivers of cash coming out of New York and California. Not satisfied with using billions to rig local elections in places they would never visit, they want American taxpayers to subsidize their political activists and their fake news operations.

The media has gone to work telling Americans that giving them billions is actually a wonderful idea in the ultimate example of a conflict of interest. What the media neglects to mention is that its outlets are facing hard financial times because they have alienated two-thirds of their audience. Unable to convince Americans to watch, read, and pay for their lies, they’re now resorting to extracting the money through the politicians they’ve been working to elect.

The same radical shift in the media that alienated its readers and viewers also vested the industry with the political power to steal billions from Americans and put it in their pockets.

The media is no longer an independent industry, it’s an arm of the ruling party.

The $1.9 million in media subsidies is a timely reminder that the only thing that the trillions in special interest pork are actually “building back better” is the Democrat Party.

Space Forces Goes Woke, Wonders Why China is Ahead in Hypersonic



republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

One of my favorite catchphrases is, "priorities". The decisions that people make are very revealing about their character. The same holds true of institutions.

American hypersonic missile capabilities are "not as advanced" as those of China or Russia, Space Force General David Thompson said Saturday at the Halifax International Security Forum in Canada, signaling that the U.S. is behind in developing the newest and most cutting-edge weaponry.

Thompson admitted during an interview that the U.S. lagging behind the other two countries is potentially dangerous for national security.

"We have catching up to do very quickly, the Chinese have an incredible hypersonic program," he said. "It's a very concerning development ... it greatly complicates the strategic warning problem."

The Chinese are building terror weapons. We're not because those are mean.

According to a memo the Congressional Research Service (CRS) provided for U.S. Congress on Oct. 19, the U.S. is lagging behind China and Russia because "most U.S. hypersonic weapons, in contrast to those in Russia and China, are not being designed for use with a nuclear warhead."

"As a result, U.S. hypersonic weapons will likely require greater accuracy and will be more technically challenging to develop than nuclear-armed Chinese and Russian systems," the CRS wrote.

Meanwhile, the Space Force is focused on going as woke as it can.

The Space Force was created at the end of 2019. Six months later it declared war on “racism”.

“Racism is an enemy," Gen. John Raymond and Chief Master Sgt. Roger Towberman declared, disabusing anyone who might have thought the military enemy was Communist China, Iran, Russia, or any of the other antagonists that the Space Force was tasked with countering.

Gen. Raymond, the Chief of Space Operations, told the ‘guardians’ of the Space Force that their oath to protect and defend the Constitution meant racism was "an enemy we must defeat" by fighting unconscious biases and owning the problem by having "uncomfortable conversations." 

How about some "uncomfortable conversations" about the way in which our core military functions have become hollow shells for wokeness? Or do we have to get hit with a hypersonic Chinese nuke before we have a military that's focused on defeating enemies instead of leftist virtue signaling?

Looters Empty Louis Vuitton Stores in San Francisco and Chicago

JUNE 7, 2020!




republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

In a shockingly brazen display, looters in San Francisco conducted a “smash and grab” at the Louis Vuitton store in Union Square on Saturday, carrying off tens of thousands of dollars in merchandise.

Just two days ago, a similar “smash and grab” robbery occurred at the Louis Vuitton store in the Chicago suburb of Oakbrook, Illinois.

In the Oak Brook robbery, police determined that 14 suspects ran into the store, grabbed armfuls of merchandise, and then ran out the door and got into three vehicles. The robbery occurred at 3:30 in the afternoon.

In San Francisco, police report that other retailers in Union Square suffered similar attacks.


“We are continuing to respond to other retail establishments where reports of vandalism has occurred,” said Rueca. “Additional officers are responding to the area and are mobilizing to address the fluid and evolving situation.”

A KTVU camera crew said Fendi and Yves Saint Laurent were among the affected retailers.

The incident at the high-end store located at Geary Boulevard and Stockton was first documented on Twitter at around 8:25 p.m. User @Yealenne posted video that shows the immediate aftermath of the theft with shattered windows on the store’s ground and San Francisco police officers who responded to the scene.

Some of the high-end retail shops that were hit, included Louis Vuitton, Fendi, Burberry, Dolce & Gabbana.

San Francisco Mayor London Breed promised to crack down on the looting. Really. She did.


The Louis Vuitton store in San Francisco’s Union Square was just one of nearly a dozen retail stores hit in the brazen smash-and-grab robbery spree. The Burberry store, Bloomingdale’s, the Jins eyeglasses store, Maxferd Jewelry & Loan and Yves Saint Laurent store were all targeted, police said.

Mayor Breed held a press conference Saturday afternoon to address the incidents the day before.

“We’re going to making some changes to Union Square and how cars are able to access. There will be limited access in terms of when you come to this area,” Breed said.

Nothing says “crackdown” quite like making it a little harder to steal $100,000 worth of high-end merchandise by limiting vehicle access. That’ll stop ’em.

The police chief also assured the people that there was going to be a change.

“We have to make it difficult for people do to what they did last night. Pull up right next to a business, shatter the windows, wipe out everything they can carry, get right in their cars parked at the curb and leave,” Scott said.

Several stores, including the Louis Vuitton store, were either burglarized and/or vandalized on Friday night. Police have arrested eight people so far, and the chief said on Saturday he expects there will be more arrests to come.

Perhaps the high-end nature of the stores hit had something to do with the attitude of many Twitter users.

Heartbreaking, but don’t lose sleep over it. LVMH is worth $40 billion, their CEO $198 billion, and they regularly destroy millions of dollars of unsold merchandise to maintain brand value and perceived exclusivity.

Yeah, they can afford it. And they’ve got insurance, so why not take what doesn’t belong to you? The store won’t be out any money, no one was hurt. Why not take it all? Those rich people owe us little people.

That’s exactly the kind of attitude that elected London Breed mayor. Why should it surprise us that this is happening?

California asked for it when they made shoplifting more attractive by raising the amount that would trigger felony charges to $950. Ever since then, pharmacies, grocery stores, and other retail outlets have moved out of the city as organized gangs of shoplifters brazenly take whatever they want, in bulk.

The city has made it crystal clear that stealing from businesses is a low-priority crime. The fact that criminals have organized to take advantage of that lax attitude shouldn’t surprise anyone.
