In the days after the attacks in Paris, France that were claimed by The Islamic State, Antiwar.com reports, “there has been a growing backlash against refugees, particularly among US Republicans.” Continue reading

By DownsizeDC.org Syrian refugees: Are we still the home of the brave? Retweet
Earlier this week, we argued that….
U.S. politicians (and voters) created the Syrian refugee crisis
Those who caused the crisis have a moral obligation to give sanctuary to the people they victimized — “You broke it, you bought it.”
No tax funding should be used for this purpose. Instead…
Congress should throw open the doors to voluntary contributions, allowing American citizens and charities to sponsor Syrian individuals and families.
We call this policy “Sanctuary yes, tax-funding no.” Today we’ll address two questions related to this policy. First…
Will taking in Syrian refugees increase the risk of
By Dr. Brian Sovryn I’m reticent to really even talk about this now as there are very few details as to what exactly happened, but Amazon is sending out warning emails to select customers that recommends those customers change their Amazon password immediately, as there has been a breach of security which has allowed certain bad actors to collect passwords for Amazon accounts from Amazon.
How this was achieved is presently unknown. My guess is that it was at least in part an “inside job” (I hate using that phrase) that allowed for this to happen. Not that Amazon servers are a hard target to
By Richard Winger On November 24, the New Hampshire Ballot Law Commission upheld ballot access in the Democratic and Republican presidential primaries for all the challenged candidates. See here. Thanks to Darryl Perry for the link.
By Matt Agorist Harris County, GA — An apparently confused Georgia sheriff attempted to make a declaration of his intolerance, setting off a storm of controversy.
Sheriff Mike Jolley of Harris County decided that it would be a good idea to put up a sign in his town ‘warning’ people who disagree with his views to ‘leave.’
Underneath the “Welcome to Harris County Georgia” sign, Sheriff Jolley added another sign that reads:
“WARNING: Harris County is politically incorrect. We say: Merry Christmas, God Bless America, and in God We Trust. We salute our troops and our flag. If this offends you… LEAVE!”
Of course there is
By Matt Agorist Altamonte Springs, FL — A concerned citizen, with a knack for blindly following all decrees handed down from the establishment on high, conducted their patriotic duty of ‘seeing something’ and then ‘saying something’ last week. The resultant tattle-telling ended with police action against four little old ladies.
Lee Delnick, Bernice Diamond, Helen Greenspan and Zelda King, all elderly women above the age of 87, had their weekly game of MahJong shut down by police who were apparently uninterested in solving actual crimes.
According to CBS Tampa, King says word spread about their weekly gathering and that a “troublemaker” in the community called
By Richard Winger On November 23, a 3-judge U.S. District Court heard arguments in Covington v State of North Carolina, m.d., 1:15cv-399. The plaintiffs are African-American voters who charge that the 2011 legislative redistricting packed too many of them in a small number of legislative districts, thus reducing their voting influence in many other adjoining legislative districts.
The case was filed May 19, 2015. The hearing was on the request for a preliminary injunction against using the districts in the 2016 election. The three judges are Thomas D. Schroeder (a Bush Jr. appointee), James A. Wynn Jr. (an Obama appointee), and
By Richard Winger On November 24, outgoing Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear issued an executive order, making it much easier for most ex-felons to register to vote. The order is expected to ease the path for 170,000 individuals. Beshear is a Democrat and he only has two more weeks in office. However, incoming Governor Matt Bevin, a Republican, said during the campaign that he favors this idea. See this story.
By Richard Winger California, despite losing the lawsuit San Francisco County Democratic Central Committee v Eu in the U.S. Supreme Court in 1989, still regulates political parties to an unusual degree. California Election Code section 7300 tells the Republican Party that “the Republican nominees for Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Treasurer, Controller, Attorney General, and Secretary of State…shall act as presidential electors.”
This law has several problems. First, because voters passed Proposition 14 in 2010, parties in California no longer have nominees (except for President, Vice-President and presidential elector). Second, even if the law is interpreted to mean mere members of the Republican
By Dr. Brian Sovryn The idea was smattered all over the worthless cesspool of the internet…sorry, I mean Reddit…
“You can buy your gas with Bitcoin!”
Wow, what a concept! It seems to be the one thing that hasn’t directly happened yet (at least far as I know): a gas station that accepts Bitcoin either at the pump or at the front counter. While I’ll be the first to say I don’t see it happening anytime soon in most countries (I’m well aware you can do it in parts of Europe, and that Bitcoin gas pumps have been devised, but I don’t see any around)–certainly not
By Jay Syrmopoulos Only days after warning Russia of “serious consequences” if they continued bombing ISIS in the Syrian-Turkish border region, a Russian Su-24 fighter jet was shot down by Turkey, with Turkish officials claiming the jet had violated Turkish airspace, a claim Moscow denies.
U.S. officials have stated that the Russian jet violated Turkish airspace for “a matter of seconds.”
The Russian plane was flying at an altitude of 6,000m (19,685ft) when it was shot down by the Turkish military before subsequently crashing. The pilots were reportedly shot by Turkmen as they parachuted from the jet as it crashed. Initial reports suggested the pilots
By The Free Thought Project (RT) — A video of Syrian rebels allegedly firing at a Russian-made helicopter on the ground has been posted on a YouTube channel associated with the FSA’s 1st Coastal Brigade. The helicopter is said to have been on a search mission for the pilots of the Su-24 jet downed by Turkey in Syria.
According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the militants stuck the helicopter with an anti-tank missile.
The Free Syrian Army (FSA), considered to be the so-called “moderate opposition” by the West, has received US Tow missiles among other weaponry.
Rebels of 1st Coatal Div say Russ helo landed with
By Matt Agorist New York, NY — Last November, Mayor Bill De Blasio announced that police would no longer arrest people simply for possessing small amounts of marijuana. Naturally, this news was met with fear mongering by the police unions who claimed it would put cops in danger.
