Ah, Venezuela. Under Comrade Chavez, that champion of socialism, it was held up as a template for just what COULD be achieved by that wonderful political creed. So, let’s dip in to see how it’s prospering these days…
A new study finds Venezuela on the brink of famine, with an alarming fifteen percent of citizens saying they can only feed themselves with “food waste discarded by commercial establishments,” while nearly half say they have had to take time off work to search for food.
Scavenging in the dirt for food. Quick, time to increase the redistribution of wealth some more….?
Transport for London (TFL) has announced LGBT pedestrian lights in London will become a permanent fixture in the city’s streets. The change was made for Pride in London which took place in June – shortly after the massacre of 49 people in Orlando in gay nightclub Pulse. Around 50 lights at pedestrian signals at crossings around the iconic Trafalgar Square were initially announced as a temporary installation. The designs include LGBT symbols, two men and two women holding hands and trans people.
Looking forward to Burqa traffic lights next. London has long ceased to be a British city.
Brown University’s student body president, Viet Nguyen, has decided to implement a small but important change to the on-campus bathrooms this year: menstrual products will be freely available in all of the non-residential bathrooms on Brown’s campus. Yes, all of the bathrooms–women’s, men’s, and gender-neutral ones.
“The explanation is pretty straightforward. Some people need menstrual products, and some people don’t. May as well make them free and available to everybody who might need them, just like toilet paper. Not everybody has to use toilet paper when they pee; some people do; it’s available for everybody, regardless. Same diff, really”
Spot the cognitive dissonance. The reason that menstrual products are not needed in the men’s bathrooms is because MEN to not need them. This sort of infantile gender warfare is about all the student left are capable of doing. I am sure Obama approves.
Regressive Leftists will stamp their little feet in horror as once again Donald Trump is proven to have been right.
Donald Trump has said that he “predicted” the bombing in New York and called for police to begin racially profiling Muslims living in the United States.
In an interview in which Mr Trump again called for all followers of the faith to be banned from the country, claiming that America under the leadership of Barack Obama, and Hillary Clinton when she was secretary of state, “coddled” extremists. “These are sick evil people that want to destroy this country,” Mr Trump said, adding “we coddle them” and ” are afraid to say anything, and to say what the problem is”.
Dead right. The Minnesota mall attacker was a Somalian allowed into the US. by successive spineless regimes Almost 100,000 Somali refugees have been resettled in the United States since 9/11, including 8,619 so far during the current fiscal year. The largest number – some 16 percent of the total over the past 15 years – have been resettled in Minnesota, home to the nation’s biggest Somali-American community. 99.6% were Muslims.
Strikes me that crime no longer means crime as the regressive Left redefine the term to the point where it means NOTHING.
A UK police force that reclassified wolf-whistling, cat-calling and other misogynistic harassment as hate crimes has handled 30 cases in five months.And 15 other forces are looking at following Nottinghamshire Police’s lead in treating incidents against women in this way, the Victoria Derbyshire programmehas learned.
So something that is seen as a compliment by many women is now a hate crime because the self loathing feminazi left object to it. Would I ever wolf whistle at a woman? No. But do I think it a crime? NO!!!!! Haven’t the Police any real crimes to be sorting out?
So. It was a bomb. (Several) It was an act of terror. It was a Muslim who was “vetted” by the authorities and welcomed into the USA from his home country, Afghanistan.
Trump has spoken out on this and called it right at the time when cringing liberals like De Blasio and Cuomo were telling us it was merely an “intentional” act. (To be fair to Hillary Clinton, she appears to have spelt through it all!) I am glad that Rahami has been captured, alive, and trust he is given the harshest treatment available.
This morning comes the news that the latest Islamic Terrorist has been captured after a shoot out with police. Nice work by law enforcement, and thankfully no one was killed in the attack. In the early hours and days there are usually confirming reports. No doubt we’ll have some here. He is an Afghan who reportedly became an American citizen. I trust they will throw the book at him.
France has been chiselled out from within by importing a death cult that has now gained sufficient momentum to challenge the 5th Republic. Just think about this stat for one moment if you will…
One in four French Muslims support an ultra-conservative form of Islam which forces women to wear full-face veils, a study has found.’Islam is for them a way of asserting themselves on the margins of French society,’ the report found, noting that most people in that group approved of the burqa and of polygamy, which is permitted by Islam.
If this poll is accurate, that means France has well over ONE MILLION radical Muslims out to impose their ways on France. See the problem? It will be Jihad in perpetuity until one side prevails. I’m betting it won’t be the wake kneed vacillating French.
Well then, it’s been a busy day for those carrying out acts of terror intentional acts of violence in the USA.
A St. Cloud mall was on lockdown for several hours Saturday night after a suspect stabbed eight people, according to police. It happened just after 8 p.m. There were eight victims with stab wounds, police said. Seven were treated and released and one remains in the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, according to police. Police said the suspect, dressed in a private security uniform, made a reference to Allah and asked one victim if they were Muslim. An off-duty police officer from another jurisdiction confronted the suspect and fatally shot him, police said. <The Mall is a gun-free zone>
New York authorities confirm that 29 people were treated and released from hospitals for injuries following an explosion in Manhattan on Saturday night.
Within minutes, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio advised us;
New York City’s mayor said an explosion in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan Saturday night that injured 29 people was an “intentional act.”
What? Did he think it might be an accidental prank? What sort of idiocy is this from De Blasio?
Governor Andrew Cuomo described the bombing as terrorism regardless of its ultimate motive or perpetrator. “There is no link at this time at this preliminary stage to international terrorism.”
I see. I guess we can rule out the IRA then? Cuomo is also avoiding the muslim elephant in the Big Apple Room.
But just blocks away from the first explosion, which injured 29 people, another “suspicious device” was found according to CNN. The device, according to CNN, was “a pressure cooker with dark colored wiring protruding, connected by silver duct tape to what appears to be a cell phone.”
I see. Probably the work of a well meaning clock designer?
A deadly pipe bomb exploded along a route where thousands of runners were due to take part in a charity run in Jersey.
More than one thousand spectators, including war veterans and small children, had gathered just a few blocks from the blast in Jersey Shore town on Saturday afternoon.
Two unexploded pipe bombs were found in a garbage can near the event 5km run which sought to raise money for marines and sailors.
Relax. Commander-in-Chief wannabe Sick Hillary showed a dynamic response to all these acts of Intentional violence…
