    According to an unnamed intelligence officer, Ecuador has caved to pressure from the Clintons and is extraditing Julian Assange. “Assange will likely be imprisoned or dead in the next 12 hours,” revealed the source. “If they get me for sharing this, at least I died a patriot.” Assange has apparently threatened to kill himself if he is removed from the embassy.

    Horror! Asylum seeker cut off victims’ eyelids, ears and nose. Stabbed eyeballs. Police officers caught the 19-year-old tormentor during the mutilation of his victim Schlüchtern, Germany — What took place in the small town in east Hesse on Saturday exceeded the human imagination in its cruelty. The eyelids, ears and nose wings were cut off from an 18-year-old Somali. But even then his torturer did not stop! Even the prosecutor’s office has to look for words for the horror, the background of which is still in the dark. As reported by chief prosecutor Jürgen Heinze Osthessen-News on Monday, the horror...

    The State Department painted it as an elegant way out of a ballooning crisis involving Chinese dissident Chen Guangcheng — but by day’s end, it looked like a disgraceful performance by US diplomats. Initial reports had Chen so pleased by the deal that he told Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, “I want to kiss you.” The agreement Clinton negotiated with Beijing yesterday supposedly allowed Cheng to stay in China and get medical attention, with the authorities guaranteeing his future safety. But things started unraveling just hours after the compromise was inked. First, while State claims Chen never wanted to leave...

Now the federal police distribute tips to German women on how they can protect themselves from being raped. “When women feel anxiety when they walk towards a group of men, or when they perceive a situation that emanates possible danger, they should trust their intuition in any case, and they should avoid getting into those kinds of situations any deeper,” says Markus Koths, the press spokesman for...

    30,000 Refugees "Go Missing" As Swedes Face Increasing Violence From Asylum-Seekers by Tyler Durden Aug 5, 2016 12:05 PM 0 SHARES Submitted by Ingrid Carlqvist via The Gatestone Institute, The daily Svenska Dagbladet reported that 30,000 people whose asylum application had been rejected and were scheduled for deportation, had gone missing. The police say they lack the resources to track down these illegals.

On June 7, it was reported that British citizen Grace "Khadija" Dare had brought...

In new guidance published this week, The Independent Advisory Group on Country Information within the Home Office discussed “fear of persecution or serious harm by the state because of the person’s actual or perceived involvement with the Muslim Brotherhood (MB)”, stating that “MB leaders and supporters have faced a prolonged crackdown by President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi’s regime following the ousting of President Mohamed Morsi in July 2013 and the...

    Congress should give serious consideration to mandating a different registration system that reduces, if not eliminates, UNHCR’s role in the intake process The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is where would-be asylum seekers are first registered and vetted for possible referral to a destination host country for resettlement. UNHCR is the prime international advocate for self-identified “refugees” seeking asylum. While the agency gives lip service to security concerns and the need to weed out terrorists, it operates on the premise that such asylum seekers, wherever they come from including the Middle East, should be given the benefit of...

A group of young men insulted guests, viciously berating especially women. "You have insulted us, insulted and even spat upon," says a reader that her name would not name for fear. "We women are all sluts and they would exterminate us all, as was the wording." In between the young men shouted "Allahu akbar".

    AT LEAST one person has been killed and 12 more are injured after a Syrian asylum seeker blew himself outside a wine bar in Germany. The attack took place in Ansbach, near Nuremburg, after the 27-year-old was denied access to the nearby Ansbach Open music festival, according to Germany's interior minister Joachim Herrmann. Hermann said the suspect, who was known to police, had lived in Germany for two years but was denied asylum in the country a year ago. He said it is unclear if the suspect intended to kill others or just himself but said he had “tried to...

The action rescinded the agreement by the previous government of Poland to help resettle them. Lest we forget or are too young to remember, it was the Poles, led by Lech Walesa and Pope John Paul II, who courageously and resolutely led to the dissolution of the Soviet empire. And now the Poles are manning the Gates of Vienna against the Muslim hordes, in sharp contrast to their sniveling, politically correct European brethren. The dead, bloodied, and mangled in...

While saying he did find Kyle Lydell Canty to have a genuine fear of returning to his home country, adjudicator Ron Yamauchi said that was not enough to grant asylum. A string of shootings of black men by U.S. police over the past 18 months have led to widespread protests and the issue has fueled a civil...

By law, asylum is supposed to be a somewhat rare and unique immigration status to obtain, and can only be based on "past persecution or a well-founded fear of future persecution based on their race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion."

    A disturbing new report obtained by Judicial Watch shows that the Obama administration has granted residency or asylum to 1,519 foreigners who supported terrorism at one time. Apparently, Obama’s Homeland Security chief determined that the recently admitted Islamists only participated in terrorist activities “while under duress.”The Obama administration unilaterally eased restrictions on asylum seekers with loose or incidental ties to terror and insurgent groups in 2014. Prior to that, the foreign nationals would have been banned from the country for supporting terrorist causes.Judicial Watch obtained the numbers from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services’ (USCIS) annual report to...

    As if the President Obama’s sweeping amnesty measures haven’t compromised national security enough, the administration let 1,519 “inadmissible” foreigners embroiled in terrorism into the U.S. last year because the crimes were committed “while under duress.” Before the Obama administration tweaked a federal law last year, these foreign nationals would have been banned from the country for supporting terrorist causes. But under the changes the Secretary of Homeland Security has “discretionary authority” to waive certain grounds of inadmissibility relating to terrorism. We’ve seen this discretionary authority abused in the last few years and in fact, the administration has eliminated a zero...

    The influx of refugees from the perpetually war-torn Middle East currently flooding Europe presents a problem of immense measures right now, but the current problems it presents pales in comparison to the problems it will present in the future. Germany, for instance, is accepting eight hundred thousand in a nation of 80.62 million, and the refugees will represent almost one percent of the German population in a nation that already has a prominent Muslim constituency. This flow of refugees is just the beginning of what is bound to come, as the word gets back to Syria and the ISIS controlled...

The country expects a total of around 800,000 people to seek asylum in Germany this year. And that’s just Germany. The entire continent of Europe is being inundated with refugees at a rate unprecedented in world history. This is no longer just a “refugee crisis.” This is a hijrah.

    When the London Telegraph reported last week that newly uncovered documents link 9/11 ringleader Mohamed Atta to Iraq-based Palestinian terrorist Abu Nidal, it wasn't the first time one of the 9/11 hijackers had been reported to have such ties. In a development that adds evidence to the case that Iraq played a direct role in the worst attack ever on the U.S., reports show that Ziad Jarrah - who piloted the plane that crashed in Pennsylvania after passengers had discovered they were on a suicide mission - also had ties to Nidal. Like Atta, Jarrah traveled to Hamburg, Germany, where...

    In recent months, the I-Team has interviewed judges, clerks, lawyers and even some who work as Punjabi translators in these cases. They tell the I-Team they fear these undocumented young men are illegally crossing the U.S. border with the knowledge that they can head to family court for help getting special immigration status. It’s a little known route they’ve learned to navigate with the help of lawyers and criminal human smugglers who sources tell the I-Team are profiting. At Queens Family Court last month, the I-Team found Amandeep Singh -- a common name both in India and in the courthouse....

    Cuba said Monday that it has a right to grant asylum to U.S. fugitives, the clearest sign to date that the communist government has no intention of extraditing America’s most-wanted woman despite the warming of bilateral relations. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has urged President Barack Obama to demand the return of fugitive Joanne Chesimard before restoring full relations under a historic détente announced by Obama and Cuban President Raúl Castro last week. […] In a letter sent to the White House Friday and made public by his office Sunday, Christie said Cuba’s asylum for Chesimard, who has changed her...

    The Department of Justice’s board of immigration appeals has decided to let Guatemalan women win asylum in the United States if they claim to be victims of domestic violence. The decision creates a huge new incentive for Guatemalan women to cross the U.S. border, because if their asylum claim is accepted, their children get U.S. citizenship, plus the use of federal health, education and retirement programs, regardless of their initial education and work skills. The new decision also means that many of the Guatemalan women who have already crossed the border this year have a new claim for asylum. Coyotes...

    France, the once atheistic land, has really began to find a spine in recent weeks. I reported a little over a week ago that France had banned Pro-Palestinian terror protests and leveled stiff penalties for violators. Now, word is that France is opening up their borders for asylum to Christians suffering persecution from Islamists in Iraq.

Meriam Yahia Ibrahim, the woman sentenced to death in Sudan for her Christian faith, has left Khartoum and landed in Rome, greeted by Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi at the airport. Italy helped the US mediate her release with Sudanese officials in a quiet effort launched a few weeks ago:

    The unaccompanied children flooding our southern border are not refugees and do not qualify for asylum under U.S. law or international law. ...

    US policy regarding the UN picks who becomes US refugees. Christians are being refused refugee status and face persecution and many times certain death for their religious beliefs under the sharia, while whole Muslim communities are entering the US by the tens of thousands per month despite the fact that they face no religious persecution. It is horrifying that Afghan Christians are being refused refugee status by the UN and many Western nations, including Britain. The UN claims that Afghan Christians do not meet the criteria for refugees under Statute 6B of the UN High Commission of Refugees (UNHCR), which...
