For years the political elites, backed by funding from George Soros, have fought common sense voter ID laws as blatant attempts of racist right wingers to suppress the votes of minority and low-income citizens. These same people tirelessly argue that there is no evidence of voter fraud despite the mountain of facts that keeps piling up the contrary. In fact, per the National Review, United States District Judge Lynn Adelman of Wisconsin, in response to a voter ID complaint in that state, recently claimed that “virtually no voter impersonation occurs” in Wisconsin and that “no evidence suggests that voter-impersonation fraud will become a problem at any time in the foreseeable future.”
VIENNA, Austria — During a mass brawl between migrants from Chechnya and Turkey in the Austrian capital a passerby was pushed into the path of an oncoming tram.
The victim, a Serbian man, was struck by a tram when one of the brawlers pushed him onto the tracks, reports Austrian paper Kronen Zeitung.
The Serbian sustained severe injuries with his legs being directly hit by the oncoming tram at the intersection of Knöllgasse and Quellenstraße in Vienna’s Favoriten district. The Favoriten district is well known for its high population of migrants from Turkey, Chechnya, and the Balkan states and is a low-income area.
It is unclear what caused this Frenchman to walk into an Apple store and crush every single iPhone in site with a metal ball bearing but that is exactly what he decided to do. Perhaps he was one of the unfortunate victims of a spoof video that apparently succeeding a convincing people to drill a headphone jack in their new iPhone 7?

Luckily for the iPhone smasher, this event occurred in France where security guards quickly surrendered the store and allowed the man to simply walk out and go on his merry way.

The world’s most entertaining, Tourette syndrome-plagued president, Philippines Rodrigo Duterte has just sparked another scandal.
As a reminder, one week ago, in his latest outburst, Duterte stunned reporters and officials when he responded to Europe’s condemnation of his government’s brutal anti-crime crackdown, when after an EU statement urged Duterte to put an end to the “extrajudicial killings” and launch an alternative campaign in line with international human rights laws, the president did not hold back in his response to Brussels and during a speech said: “I read the condemnation of the EU against me. I will tell them: ‘Fuck you.’ “You’re doing it in atonement for your sins.”
He accused the bloc of hypocrisy, saying a rudimental check of the history books showed European countries had killed thousands of people in the past. “He added: And then the EU has the gall to condemn me. I repeat: “Fuck you.”
Fast forward one week, when Duterte compared himself to Adolf Hitler on Friday, and said he would “be happy” to exterminate three million drug users and peddlers in the country.
In yet another rambling, disjointed speech on his arrival in Davao City after a visit to Vietnam, Duterte told reporters that he had been “portrayed to be a cousin of Hitler” by critics. Explaining that Hitler had murdered millions of Jews, Duterte said: “There are three million drug addicts (in the Philippines). I’d be happy to slaughter them.
“If Germany had Hitler, the Philippines would have…,” he said, pausing and pointing to himself. “You know my victims. I would like (them) to be all criminals to finish the problem of my country and save the next generation from perdition.”
- In 2001 alone, 54,000 people “attacked” the Channel Tunnel terminal in Calais and 5,000 had gotten through.
- Migrants evicted from Calais moved to Paris and established a massive squatter camp at the Jardins d’Eole, a public park near the Gare du Nord station, from where high-speed Eurostar trains travel to and arrive from London. The area has become a magnet for human traffickers who charge migrants thousands of euros for fake travel documents, for passage to London.
- The President of the Alpes-Maritimes region, Eric Ciotti, criticized the government’s “irresponsible” plan to relocate migrants in Calais to other parts of France. He said the plan would “proliferate a multitude of small Calais, genuine areas of lawlessness that exacerbate lasting tensions throughout the country.”
- A whistleblower reported that volunteer aid workers at “The Jungle” were forging sexual relationships with migrants, including children. “Female volunteers having sex enforces the view (that many have) that volunteers are here for sex,” he said.
French President François Hollande has vowed “definitively, entirely and rapidly” to dismantle “The Jungle,” a squalid migrant camp in the northern port town of Calais, by the end of this year.

Take away the right of free speech & protest at unacceptable Government & you get Tyranny.
Whilst I don’t personally consider a Pit Bull a beautiful example of Canis, and have to admit it is probably quite a weapon if used properly, the worrying aspect of this latest interfering bureaucratic nonsense, this time in Canada, is that they’ll be banning German Shepherds, Rotts & Dobermans if this is deemed successful, and once again the people will be defenceless as Society crumbles and we turn on ourselves as the scum plan. All in increments.”
Montreal, CA – The city council of Montreal recently voted to ban ownership of pit bulls, causing outrage from dog lovers everywhere.
The measure was voted by a 37-23 majority, in response to controversy caused by a random dog attack, which was an isolated incident.
Mayor Denis Coderre issued a statement after the vote saying, “My duty as mayor of Montreal is making sure I am working for all Montrealers. And I am there to make sure they feel safe and that they are safe.”
The US government, much to the chagrin of Senator Ted Cruz, is set to officially relinquish the Department of Commerce’s oversight of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) as of tomorrow night at midnight. ICANN is a California nonprofit that has supervised website domains since 1998, essentially under subcontract from the Commerce Department. Under the Obama transition plan oversight by the U.S. Commerce Department would end and be replaced by a multi-stakeholder community, which would include the technical community, businesses, civil society and governments.
Cruz had attempted to block the internet transition by tying the recently passed funding bill to the reversal of the ICANN turnover. That said, apparently his harsh admonishments on the Senate floor failed to draw enough support from his fellow republicans to force a government shutdown over the topic.
“In 22 short days, if Congress fails to act, the Obama administration intends to give away control of the Internet to an international body akin to the United Nations,” Sen. Cruz said. “I rise today to discuss the significant, irreparable damage this proposed Internet giveaway could wreak not only on our nation, but on free speech across the world.”

“I think that unless Vlad has something up his sleeve, we’re all doomed.”
Kirby from The US State Department recently stated that more Russians will go home in body-bags and that the US may back-up the “vacuums” left in Syria due to the Russian and Syrian push to take Aleppo. Well the US has made good on its threat by insuring a third party sent the Moderate Rebels Grad launchers that are now being used against the Syrian Army.
