    Redoubt News ^ | August 26, 2017 | Jim Boyer
    In areas throughout the American Redoubt people can be heard complaining about new comers from California or other liberal places. While many new comers are moving here to leave the depressing environment of more taxes, crowded roads, sanctuary cities and gender neutral bathrooms to enjoy the freedoms America was founded upon, there are also those that are not. Those that are not are most likely liberal democrats. Some of them grew uncomfortable in places where the quality of life was degraded by politics they supported. While they may not realize what they helped create, or why they really left, they...

    There are no cardboard boxes or bubble wrap or heavy duty packing tape in Tim Stokes' 1,600-square-foot Sacramento, Calif., home. But, according to the 36-year-old, he and his pregnant wife, their three kids and their two 100-pound mastiffs are on the verge of selling the house they bought just over a year ago. Though Stokes was born in Nevada, he has spent all but the first six months of his life in California. For most of that time, any move away from his hometown and family would have been unthinkable for him. But in the past six years, Stokes, who...
  • Angela Merkel calling for more Muslim migrants

    08/14/2017 7:35:45 PM PDT · by Mr. Mojo · 38 replies
    Angela Merkel wants more migrants. “Echoing her ‘wir schaffen das’ [‘we can do this’] mantra from the beginning of the migrant crisis,” Merkel is pushing for the EU to take in 40 thousand more migrants. The “migrant mayhem” because of Merkel’s reckless immigration policy has not fazed her, since the public backlash against her seems to have subsided. Back in February, Merkel “urged Europe to take in more refugees and said Islam is ‘not the source of terror.'” Only three months before that, however, Merkel did a complete u-turn in response to embarrassing electoral defeats and threats to her power....

    August 10, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) -- Historian Arnold Toynbee once famously said that “civilizations die from suicide, not by murder.” Using this as a springboard, commentator Mark Steyn shows in a new video how Western Europe is already in the death throes of “demographic suicide” because couples are no longer having enough children. He then shows how a thriving Muslim population in Western Europe is well on its way to filling all the empty space. Steyn explained how given the divergent birth rate between Muslims and post-Christian secularists, it will take only two generations for the current Muslim population (sitting at...
  • Arrival of modern humans in Southeast Asia questioned

    Science Daily ^ | 8/9/17 | University of Queensland
    Humans may have exited out of Africa and arrived in Southeast Asia 20,000 years earlier than previously thought, a new study involving University of Queensland researchers suggests. Findings from the Macquarie University-led study also suggest humans could have potentially made the crossing to Australia even earlier than the accepted 60,000 to 65,000 years ago. Dr Gilbert Price of UQ School of Earth and Environmental Sciences said the dating of a cave site in West Sumatra, called Lida Ajer, provided first evidence for rainforest use of modern humans. "Rainforests aren't the easiest place to make a living, especially for a savannah-adapted...

    Truth Revolt via Briebart via Pamela Geller ^ | Aug 7, 2017 | Vijeta Uniyal,
    With Merkel and Macron at the helm, there is little political will within the EU to avert the next migrant catastrophe. With less than 50 days until the German election, Germany’s intelligence services have warned of a large migrant wave set to hit the country, comparable to the one that overwhelmed Europe two years ago. “The new large refugee wave is already under way,” wrote Austria’s leading newspaper Kronen Zeitung today, citing German Security services. The story was broken by the German newspaper Die Welt in its Sunday edition: Security services believe that the number of asylum seekers in Germany...
  • Mass Immigration Does Not Make America Richer: The RAISE Act Will Not Destroy The Economy

    American Greatness ^ | August 3, 2017 | Spencer P Morrison
    A number of comprehensive studies have examined the impact of immigration on economic growth. In America, one of the most thorough was a 642-page study by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. The study found that immigration held down the wages and undermined employment prospects of American citizens, particularly working-class Americans. This is not surprising, since more workers means more competition for employment, and therefore lower prices (wages). It is basic supply and demand in action. Another comprehensive study by the Fraser Institute found that immigration costs Canadian taxpayers some $24 billion per year—and this was using data...
  • Migrant crisis: Italy approves Libya naval mission

    BBC ^ | 02 August 2017
    Italy's parliament has approved a plan to send naval boats to Libya as part of efforts to stop migrants crossing the Mediterranean Sea. Two vessels are being deployed initially, in what the government says is an operation to help the Libyan coastguard and target people smugglers. Italy is the main recipient of migrants making the dangerous crossing from Libya. Earlier Italy impounded a German rescue ship on the island of Lampedusa. The crew on board the Iuventa, operated by German NGO Jugend Rettet, is being questioned on the orders of the Italian prosecutor. While the NGO said the check was...
  • Exodus: Company Helps Conservative Californians Emigrate to Texas

    A new company is helping conservative Californians emigrate to Texas, where they can enjoy lower taxes, better economic opportunities, and friendlier politics. Fox News reports that former Republican congressional candidate Paul Chabot has founded a company, Conservative Move, that helps would-be emigrants sell their homes in the Golden State and find new ones in the Lone Star State, and also helps them find “a good-paying job” in their new home. Chabot’s prospective clients include those who, like him, have concluded that California has no future for them: "While California during the 1980s and early 1990s was anything but serene –...

    Mr. MAGA comes around to the Williamson Plan. And lo, there was a light in the darkness. President Trump has embraced the Williamson Doctrine, the Gospel of U-Haul, the Grand Unified Theory of Getting Off Your Ass and Going Where the Jobs Are. MAGA, kids. MAGA. In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Trump boasted about the new American factories that he expects to be built under his watch — electronics manufacturer Foxconn is planning (probably) a new Wisconsin facility — and then suggested that the people in communities that were not positioned to benefit from these investments might...

    Winter is coming for the North. Last year, three states in the Northeast — New Jersey, New York and Connecticut — landed in the top five places people were moving out of fastest, according to 2017 data from United Van Lines. (The other two states on the list were Illinois and Kansas.) And data from Pew Charitable Trusts found that while people are all about moving to the South (their population grew by nearly 1.4 million people from 2014 to 2015) and the West (866,000 more people), the population growth in the Northeast is “sluggish.”

    Steyn On-line ^ | July 21, 2017 | Mark Steyn
    The most important determination the media make is deciding what category a story falls into. For example, NPR recently ran a report asking the following: How Did Crimean-Congo Hemorrhagic Fever Pop Up In Spain? Oddly enough, despite the headline, the reporter doesn't seem that interested in answering the question. What follows is a public-health story: The disease is a tick-borne, Ebola-like virus. Because it's a lesser-known illness, it is often misdiagnosed. So there aren't very good official statistics on the number of cases in many parts of the world. It's normally found in North Africa, the Middle East and Central...

Vincenzo Lionetto, mayor of Castel'Umberto in Messina, wrote an "urgent and important" Facebook post advising residents that the local prefect had just informed him that the 30 or so migrants would be transferred to the Canguro hotel. He led a dozen or so residents in surrounding the hotel with their cars...

    Senior Italian government figures are threatening to issue European Union visas to 200,000 migrants, granting them unrestricted access to the bloc’s borderless Schengen Zone. Deputy Foreign Minister Mario Giro and Senator Luigi Manconi told The Times that the government was discussing issuing migrants with temporary visas which would allow them to leave Italy and move freely through the bloc’s 26 Schengen countries. Mr. Giro and others from the ruling Democratic Party believe Italy can exploit the little-known European Council Directive 2001/55, drafted after the Balkans conflict, to give temporary EU entry permits to ‘displaced people’ – triggering another wave of...

    . Replacement Migration: Is It a Solution to Declining and Ageing Populations? United Nations projections indicate that over the next 50 years, the populations of virtually all countries of Europe as well as Japan will face population decline and population ageing. The new challenges of declining and ageing populations will require comprehensive reassessments of many established policies and programmes, including those relating to international migration. Focusing on these two striking and critical population trends, the report considers replacement migration for eight low-fertility countries (France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Republic of Korea, Russian Federation, United Kingdom and United States) and two regions...

    Why do half of French Jews want to leave France? Because the recent rise of violent antisemitism has made French Jews justifiably concerned about their personal safety. A University of Oslo study published in June is one of the most methodologically sophisticated and comprehensive reports exploring the growth of Europe’s antisemitism problem. Authored by Dr. Johannes Due Enstad of the Center for Research on Extremism, the study documents violent antisemitism from 2005-2015, analyzing seven countries: France, the UK, Germany, Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Russia. According to the study, many European Jews feel unsafe as a direct consequence of violent antisemitism,...

    Six in 10 American voters support the new ban on people from six countries from entering the United States unless they can show they have a close relative here, according to opinion poll results released on Wednesday. The Politico-Morning Consult poll found 37 percent of voters said they "strongly supported" the new U.S. State Department guidelines that would deny visas to citizens of Iran, Libya, Syria, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen who do not have close relatives in the United States. Another 23 percent of voters said they "somewhat support" the guidelines. The partial ban was most strongly supported by Trump's...

    We think of Atlanta as the black metropolis but during the Great Migration, where did all the black Southerners go? A lot went to Chicago, and their descendants are still there. Or were. Cause it turns out, the “black exodus” is very real in the city of Chicago. Chicago's Cook Country had — and has — the largest population of black people of any county in the United States. But Cook County has shown noticeable dips in its black population within the past year or so. In fact, the Chicago Tribune reports that more than 12,000 black residents left the...
