    Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz spoke about Erdoğan’s threats after the mosques under the AKP government were closed and imams deported to Turkey. Kurz said: “We are not afraid of your threats.” Austria had recently ruled to deport 60 imams and their families who had ties to the Turkish state, under the country’s “combatting political Islam” policy. 7 mosques were closed down, and the Austrian government’s decision came after children were put in army uniforms in these Turkish mosques. Turkish President Erdoğan and AKP officials started to target Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz after these rulings. AKP supporters posted death threats against...

    A Democratic lawmaker was shut down on the floor of the House on Friday after playing an audio recording of crying children who were separated from their families at the southern border. Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) said the American people should hear the recording, which was obtained by ProPublica. "Imagine being ripped away from your mother or father and not knowing if you're ever going to see them again, and then being placed in a detention facility with strangers. Imagine the horror you will see doing that. What must that sound like?" Lieu said before starting the recording. After several...

    Gary Byrne, an author and former Secret Service Agent, has filed a Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) suit against Bill and Hillary Clinton, George Soros, John Podesta and David Brock, among others. A summary of the RICO suit says in part: For the past decade in which relevant predicate acts were corruptly carried out by the named defendants as payback for Plaintiff Gary Byrnes role in the Clinton impeachment and his status as a Clinton enemy (for his temerity in telling the truth concerning obstruction of justice and gross abuse of power), along with their corrupt surrogates and...

    President Trump on Friday hit back against the news media for not covering what he called permanent separations, referring to victims who were killed in the United States by undocumented immigrants. These are the American citizens permanently separated from their loved ones. The word you have to think about is 'permanently,'" Trump said at an immigration event at the White House. "You hear the other side, you never hear this side." Friday's event featured testimony from family members whose relatives were killed by undocumented immigrants. They stood on the stage holding up pictures of their loved ones, which appeared to...

    House GOP leaders plan to move forward with a compromise immigration bill next week despite a Friday morning tweet from President Trump saying he thinks Republicans should hold off on immigration until after the midterm elections. Trump said Republicans should "stop wasting their time on Immigration until after we elect more Senators and Congressmen/women in November," dealing a setback to lawmakers who were looking to get the president's support before casting their vote. House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) on Friday confirmed that the legislation introduced by Rep. Jeff Denham (R-Calif.), Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-Fla.), Homeland Security Committee Chairman...
  • There's nearly a Nixon '74 level of public support for impeaching Trump

    (CNN)There is a truly remarkable number in the most recent CNN poll, conducted by SSRS and out this morning. In it, 42% of Americans say President Donald Trump should be impeached and removed from office. What makes it remarkable is that he's on par with President Richard Nixon, who 43% of Americans said should be impeached and removed from office in a March 1974 Harris poll. That was after the scale of Watergate came to light, but months before the House started to move against Nixon, who would go on to resign in August 1974 rather than be impeached. Impeachment...

    Actions by the United States, Turkey and Russia could be driving Kurds into the awkward embrace of the Syrian regime.First, Russia gave the green light in January for Turkey'sOperation Olive Branch against the KurdishPeople's Protection Units (YPG) in Afrin, Syria. (Turkey considers the YPG a terrorist-affiliated group.) Then earlier this month, the United States and Turkey agreed on a plan for the future of Syria's Manbij, a city the YPG controlled until recently. That future doesn't include the YPG, which had helped a US-led coalition's efforts to drive the Islamic State (IS) out of Syria. Given that Syrian President Bashar...

    Nearly 500 migrant children of the more than 2,000 who were separated from their parents at the U.S.Mexico border have been reunited since May, a senior Trump administration official told the Associated Press. The official told the news agency that those children were separated from their families because of President Trumps zero tolerance policy. The measure, which was first announced in April, seeks to aggressively prosecute any adult crossing the southern border illegally. The policy drew widespread, bipartisan condemnation for resulting in the separation of thousands of migrant children from their parents. Upon announcing the Trump administration policy, Attorney General...

    Full Title: Still: Debbie Nathan DESPERATE ASYLUM-SEEKERS ARE BEING TURNED AWAY BY U.S. BORDER AGENTS CLAIMING THERES NO ROOM U.S. CUSTOMS AND Border Protection agents are systematically violating U.S. and international law by blocking immigrants at international ports of entry on the southern border from entering the country so they can claim asylum. Immigration civil rights advocates have been documenting this illegal behavior since late 2016, from Texas to California. It was sporadic then, and appears to have been based at least in part on CBPs difficulties with handling large numbers of people. Even so, the practice of turning immigrants...

    Gangbangers peddle drugs in plain sight, hustlers resell cheap booze on the street corner — 50 cents will get you a capful — and prostitutes lead johns to the boarded-up husk of what used to be a Taco Bell. This is Tompkinsville Park on Staten Island’s North Shore in 2018 and, to area residents and merchants caught in its heroin- and K2-infested vortex, this is a battlefield. “Every day you see muggings, prostitutes, people smoking crack and shooting up heroin,” said Xhafer Gjeshbitraj, 52, who owns a building across the street from the tiny, triangular park bounded by Bay Street...

    --snip-- The exhibition reveals how the Nazis kidnapped 300,000 children from the territories they invaded, and brought them back to Germany to be raised as racially perfect Aryan children. This twisted programme of mass child abduction is today almost forgotten, buried by the greater Nazi evil of genocide. Even before the war, Himmler boasted of his idea of plundering other countries for Aryan stock living among supposedly genetically inferior populations.

    The 'dancing doctor' has defended videos of herself dancing over anesthetized patients during plastic surgeries, insisting she had the patients' consent and was 'safe' at all times. Dr. Windell Davis-Boutte, whose medical license was suspended after the videos came to light, appeared on Good Morning America on Friday. She is hoping that an Atlanta judge will overturn Georgia's Composite Medical Board's decision earlier this month. The doctor, who is being sued on the behalf of several patients who allege they had botched surgeries including a woman left permanently brain damaged by an operation, claims that the videos never put her...

    --SNIP-- Children are being marched away to showers, said MSNBC host Joe Scarborough, just like the Nazis said that they were taking people to the showers and then they never came back. Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California said in a television interview: This is the United States of America. It isnt Nazi Germany, and theres a difference. Mrs. Feinstein is right. There is no comparison. Jews in Nazi-occupied Europe were rounded up and packed into cattle cars, with little air or light, no food and virtually no water, for a harrowing two- to three-day trip to Auschwitz. They rode in...
