    Cologne will flood the city center with 1,500 police officers on New Year's Eve, 10 times more than in 2015, to prevent a repeat of the sexual assaults and robberies committed mainly by young North African and Arab migrants last year. The police chief of Cologne on Thursday promised New Year’s Eve revellers that they can party safely this year after the city made global headlines in 2015 with hundreds of sexual assaults and robberies committed predominantly by young men of North African and Arab origin around the train station and cathedral.

    Deutsche Wele ^ | 12.27.2017 | Ben Knight
    The editor-in-chief of Die Welt, one of Germany’s leading right-wing newspapers, triggered a social media meltdown on Christmas by complaining about supposed left-wing bias in Germany’s Christmas midnight masses. Ulf Poschardt wondered aloud on Twitter on Christmas Eve: “Who would voluntarily go to a midnight mass if at the end of the sermon he thinks he spent the evening with the Jusos or the Green Youth?” — referring to the youth organizations of the Social Democratic Party (SPD) and the Green party, who both represent the left wing of their centrist parties. The statement came a few days after the...

    When the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941, plunging the United States into World War II, Jerry Yellin was a teenager living with his family in Hillside, N.J. Having been intrigued by flight since he was a youngster — he constructed planes modeled on World War I aircraft — he joined the Army Air Corps in February 1942, on his 18th birthday, and became a fighter pilot.

    Interviewed by Prince Harry on BBC radio, Barack Obama blathered on about the internet in ways likely to warm liberal cockles. Obama’s comments reflect his statist impulses. And they ultimately amount to a complaint that the internet has permitted conservatives to break out of the stranglehold that the liberal media used to exercise over the flow of information.

    President Donald Trump’s new tax law spells savings for BMW and other big German companies that produce and sell their products in the United States. Not so for smaller firms. And so there’s a certain irony to the fact that the tax reform bill, signed into law last week, has also given a gift to some of Germany’s larger companies, including its carmakers. The simple reason is that some of these companies already produce a large amount of their goods in the United States....

    The past four official Democratic Party platforms have recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The 2016 party platform read, "While Jerusalem is a matter for final status negotiations, it should remain the capital of Israel, an undivided city accessible to people of all faiths. Israelis deserve security, recognition, and a normal life free from terror and incitement."

    Why the president's Jerusalem decision was the right thing to do. The Trump administration vetoed a United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolution last week that called on the U.S. to rescind its decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, and ultimately move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, the seat of Israel’s parliament (Knesset), the Supreme Court, and where the Prime Minister and President of the Jewish State reside.  The UNSC resolution drafted by Egypt and backed by 13 other members of the Security Council affirms that “any decision and actions which purport to have altered the character,...

    Donald Trump is on course to win re-election in 2020, senior British diplomats believe, as he approaches his first full year in office.   They think that despite a string of negative headlines the US president has largely kept his support base onside since entering White House Possible Democratic contenders are seen as either too old – such as Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden – or lacking in the name recognition needed to defeat Mr Trump.    The analysis is significant as it underpins the advice Theresa May is given and shapes how she approaches the UK-US “special relationship”.  ...Should Mr Trump’s presidency...

    For the first half of this century, during one of the longest active political careers in this country, Winston Churchill was interested and sympathetic to Zionism. Hating tyranny in all its forms, he had reacted strongly against the Tzarist pogroms in the first years of the century and always understood the desperate need of a haven for Jews. “I recognise,” he wrote in a private letter on 2 January 1906, “the supreme attraction to a scattered and persecuted people of a safe and settled home under the flag of tolerance and freedom.” Two years later, on 30 January 1908, he...

    It’s Christmas and we’ve just got word about one of the best-ever Christmas gifts a patriot could ever wish for: the US ambassador at the UN Nikki Haley just announced that she negotiated a $285 million cut in United Nations’ “bloated budget”. That’s a big chunk of taxpayers dollars that will not be wasted on that globalist institution next year. Nikki Haley made the announcement on Sunday and she was quoted as saying: “The inefficiency and overspending of the United Nations are well known. We will no longer let the generosity of the American people be taken advantage of or...

That evening Admiral Frazier stated to the officers of Duke of York and his staff; "I hope that if any of you are ever called upon to lead a ship into action against an opponent many times superior, you will command your ship as gallantly as Scharnhorst was commanded today."

    On December 18, President Trump invited lawmakers to the White House for a screening of Darkest Hour, starring Gary Oldman as Winston Churchill. Such a screening would never have happened under the previous president. On his first day in office, POTUS 44 removed a bust of Winston Churchill from the Oval Office and returned it to Britain. When the eviction made news, White House mouthpiece Dan Pfeiffer said the story was “100 per cent false.” But as the Telegraph reported, long after the denial, “Barack Obama’s White House has been forced to admit that it did return a bust of...

Senior Hamas leader Mahmoud Al-Zahar recently threatened that the terrorist group will shut down the U.S. embassy in Israel once it “liberates Palestine”. In an interview on Al-Jazeera on December 17, which was translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), the Hamas leader also made clear that the group "would not relinquish a single gun, not even a single bullet." “Annihilation will be the fate not only of the Jews, but also of their helpers and of the people...
