    CBS San Francisco ^ | September 25, 2017 | Christin Ayers and Abby Sterling
    If you commute on Bay Area Rapid Transit, you’ve likely seen them – women with babies begging for money. The women are often seen swaying precariously on the rolling BART train, baby strapped to their chests, approaching riders with a cardboard sign, such as: “No job, 4 kids, please help for food.” Then there are also men and women who hand out packets of Kleenex along with almost identical typewritten notes. If you don’t donate, they take the Kleenex and the note back. And so they beg, around the stations, and more uncomfortably, on the trains. Are they really as...

    The mainstream media was inundated this week with reports of a gypsy invasion of California, Pennsylvania. California is a small, sleepy, college town in southwestern Pennsylvania, in all-American coal mining country, where people still work for a living, where rolling hills and clean fields dominate the landscape in every direction. According to the Blaze.. Residents in California have said they are outraged after the federal government moved 40 Romanian “gypsies” into the town of 7,000 as part of the government’s Alternative to Detention program. On Thursday, more than 150 residents attended a community meeting about the immigrants, who residents say...

    CALIFORNIA, Pa — Residents in California Borough will pack a council meeting Thursday evening, protesting what they call repulsive behavior by Romanian immigrants who moved into town during the last two months. They describe acts of littering, defecating in public, speeding and beheading chickens. There's even a petition protesting the lifestyle of the immigrants, and it has been signed by more than 600 residents. "What I've seen is men and children -- never usually the women -- the men and the children dropping their pants in the middle of the street, defecating, pulling their pants up and going on their...

    The federal government denies it’s behind the problems faced by Roma travellers, saying it’s up to airlines to decide who boards flights to Canada.Ottawa is being accused of preventing Roma travellers from boarding Canada-bound flights and denying them the possibility of seeking asylum here. Since the end of last year, advocates and lawyers say a slew of Roma passengers from Hungary, the Czech Republic and Slovakia — all currently visa-exempted countries — have reported being stopped from boarding flights to Canada via transit points in England, Poland, Belgium and Germany. The federal government denies that it is to blame....
  • The Subway Kicker is a Roma From Bulgaria

    Gates of Vienna ^ | Baron Bodissey
    It turns out that the “subway kicker” — the man who kicked a woman down the stairs of the Berlin subway in a surveillance video that went viral — is indeed a culture-enricher. But he’s not a Muslim, he’s a Roma, a.k.a. a gypsy. His name is Svetoslav Stoykov, and the news reports refer to him as a “Bulgarian”, because that’s the passport he carries. Designating him a Bulgarian is a cause of great shame for ethnic Bulgarians, as the following news report shows. http://gatesofvienna.net/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/subwaykick.jpg>

    Simple politically correct euphemism, “Rom/Romani,” invented by progressives. is confusing and obfuscating history by design, misrepresenting the roots of an entire minority, the gypsies The invasion of Europe by young military-age Muslim men from the Middle East and Africa has pushed one Western European “headache” to the back burner – the Romanian gypsies, with their nomadic lifestyle and “criminality,” petty theft, pickpocketing, and begging around train stations and major tourist attractions; these gypsies have irritated the European Union bureaucrats and the selectively multicultural Europeans. In an effort to combat any ethnic discrimination, the Romanian government passed H.G. 1194 on December...

    At Monday's White House Summit on Working Families, first lady Michelle Obama admitted to a few of her own struggles as a working mother while making the case for flexible workplace policies for families. "The first thing I tried to do, which was a mistake, was that I tried the part-time thing…I realized I was getting gypped on that front," she told ABC's Robin Roberts at the event, which aimed to bring attention to strengthening the nation's workforce by addressing various workplace difficulties. "What happened was I got a part-time salary but worked full time."
  • European genes altered by Black Death

    The Black Death of the 14th century may be written into the DNA of survivors' descendants, new research finds. The study reveals that Roma people (sometimes known as gypsies, although this is considered a derogatory term) and white Europeans share alterations to their genetic code that occurred after the Roma settled in Europe from northwest India 1,000 years ago. The plague of the 1300s, which killed at least 75 million people, is a likely candidate for forcing this evolutionary change. "We show that there are some immune receptors that are clearly influenced by evolution in Europe and not in northwest...

    For nearly 30 years, the husband-and-wife team of “Don Wade and Roma” entertained and informed WLS-AM (890) listeners with a longevity unique in Chicago radio history. But on Sunday night, the station’s website shared the sad news from Roma Wade that “my hero, my best friend, my soulmate” had passed away “in my loving arms.’’ By 10 p.m., 10,000 well-wishers had sent emails to Roma Wade via the getwelldon@gmail.com email address on the WLS-AM (890) website, said the station’s program manager, Tracy Slutzkin. Mr. Wade, 72, died Friday morning in Florida following a nearly yearlong battle with brain cancer. His...

    Stalking their prey around some of the most famous tourist attractions in the world, they will stop at nothing to intimidate and steal. These disturbing pictures showing gangs from Romania and Bulgaria operating in Paris were published in the prestigious Paris Match magazine, which devoted eight pages to them under the headline The Flagrant Crimes Of Pickpockets. Brazenly targeting their victims in broad daylight at cashpoints, on crowded pavements and in parks and Metro stations, the increasingly aggressive gangs are causing chaos and misery in the French capital.

    French police were yesterday breaking up gipsy camps and deporting illegal immigrants found in them. Dozens of officers in riot gear descended on a settlement near Lille shortly after dawn to oversee the evacuation of some 200 Roma living in mobile homes. One hundred people were evicted from a site in Lyon, with similar round-ups happening in other major cities including Marseille. Caravans and huts were destroyed in the Belleville area of central Paris on Wednesday, making another 100 people homeless. ‘Many of those evicted will be flown home to Romania,’ said an interior ministry source, who insisted the deportations...

Gregory became very irate that he would be actually questioned about his lack of questioning of his Democrat guests. I don't think David Gregory will be back on their morning show very soon. LOL.

    Since World War Two you have had three major conflicts in the Balkans involving Orthodox Christian communities and Islamic communities; this applies to Cyprus, Bosnia and Kosovo respectively. On all three occasions the United States supported the followers of Islam and maybe one day the same will happen to Orthodox Christians in Macedonia? Yet unlike the large Christian communities of Bosnia and Cyprus, it is the land of Kosovo which is being Islamized and Albanianized under NATO, the UN, and other international institutions who are meant to be neutral. The media in the West is once more turning a 'blind...

    Hundreds of anarchists and student protesters are plotting to join the battle against the bulldozing of Europe’s largest illegal traveller camp. Police fear bloody confrontations with bailiffs and officers as outsiders attempt to turn the protest into a politically motivated riot. About 50 anarchists have already joined the 1,000 travellers at Dale Farm and Basildon District Council has spent ten years trying to remove around 500 travellers from Dale Farm after they settled beside dozens of legal plots. It ended up in the Court of Appeal last year when 80 families on 52 plots were ordered to leave. The council...

    "Milan cannot turn into an Islamic city, a zingaropoli [Gypsytown] full of Roma camps, besieged by foreigners to whom the left wants to give the right to vote," Mr Berlusconi said on his People of Freedom party website. "Milan is... one of the most important capitals in Europe in terms of intelligence, creativity and entrepreneurialism," he said. "A city like this will surely not want to hand itself over to the far left with the risk of becoming a disorderly, chaotic and unsafe city." Mr Berlusconi is understood to have taken first-round defeat in Milan - his home town and...
