    Soros told the Independent he has rooted for Trump’s downfall, and the president is succeeding in granting him his wish. “I have put my faith in Trump to destroy himself, and he has exceeded my wildest expectations,” Soros said in the interview published Monday. In response to the interviewer’s remark about Trump not representing the “values of an open and free society,” Soros said it’s a “weakness that I hope will not last very long.”
  • Ice Should Deport George Soros As A Nazi Collaborator

    "...George Soros came to the United States in 1956. At some point, he became a citizen of this country. It is unknown whether he was ever asked about what he did during the war. Such questions often weren’t asked at the time and this allowed many Nazi war criminals to penetrate the United States. But we do know that Soros had trouble obtaining a visa to originally enter the United States. Soros obtained his visa under the skilled worker quotas of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952. While the bill makes no specific mention of Nazi war crimes, it...

    The deportation of a Nazi death camp guard from his residence in Queens, New York, in 2018 by ICE was described as the removal of the "last known Nazi collaborator from the United States." That’s not quite true. There’s another Nazi collaborator living on Fifth Avenue. He’s a billionaire and untouchable because his dubious fortune has been used to finance the Democrat Party, radical leftists, assorted anti-Semites, and opponents of ICE: the agency that should step in to remove the aged Hungarian from the United States. The legal basis for removing Soros is quite clear. The Holtzman Amendment states that...
  • Giuliani's attack on Soros shows the liberal Jewish billionaire remains a top conservative target

    President Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani earlier this week upheld what has become a conservative tradition: attacking billionaire philanthropist George Soros. “Don't tell me I'm anti-Semitic if I oppose him,” Giuliani, a Roman Catholic, said in an interview with New York magazine that quickly went viral. “Soros is hardly a Jew. I'm more of a Jew than Soros is. I probably know more about — he doesn't go to church, he doesn't go to religion — synagogue.” Among those who did tell Giuliani he was, at the least, spreading anti-Semitic propaganda, was Jonathan Greenblatt, the national director of the Anti-Defamation League....

    President Trump on Friday granted pardons to two U.S. service members in cases involving allegations of war crimes. SNIP “The President, as Commander-in-Chief, is ultimately responsible for ensuring that the law is enforced and when appropriate, that mercy is granted,” White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said in a statement. “For more than two hundred years, presidents have used their authority to offer second chances to deserving individuals, including those in uniform who have served our country.” “These actions are in keeping with this long history. As the President has stated, ‘when our soldiers have to fight for our country,...

    WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump is expected to intervene in three military justice cases involving service members charged with war crimes any day, issuing pardons or otherwise clearing them of wrongdoing and preventing the U.S. military from bringing the same charges again, three U.S. officials said Thursday. White House and Pentagon officials have been working out the details for days, said the officials, speaking on the condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the issue. The details were not all clear, but the move is expected to involve executive clemency, in which Trump can pardon someone or shorten a...

    President Trump will take "imminent" action on the cases of three former U.S. military service members accused of war crimes, Fox News' Pete Hegseth reported Monday. Speaking on "Fox & Friends," Hegseth said Trump - who ordered the review of the charges against Army 1st Lt. Clint Lorance and Army Green Beret Maj. Matt Golsteyn - will be meeting with Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy about the cases and an announcement could come within a week. "It doesn't have to be a pardon or a commutation," Hegseth said. "It could be, but pardons and commutations imply guilt, that you've done something...

    A military judge on Monday took the rare step of removing a prosecutor accused of misconduct from the war crimes case of a decorated Navy SEAL. Capt. Aaron Rugh ordered Cmdr. Christopher Czaplak removed from the case of Operations Chief Edward Gallagher after defense lawyers accused the prosecution of spying on their emails, according to the ruling. ~snip~ Rugh has not yet ruled on whether to dismiss murder and attempted murder counts against Gallagher.

    The jury in the military trial of Navy SEAL Chief Eddie Gallagher has found him not guilty of premeditated murder and attempted murder during a deployment to Iraq in 2017. He was, however, found guilty of unlawfully posing for a picture with a human casualty. The verdict was reached after about a day of deliberation. The government and defense attorneys both made closing arguments in the case on Monday, after presenting testimony from numerous witnesses over two weeks. Gallagher, 40, was charged with premeditated murder over an alleged stabbing of a wounded ISIS fighter in Mosul, and attempted premeditated murder...

    Inducting Jane Fonda into the National Women's Hall of Fame could cost the organization its partnership with Seneca Falls, New York, its host town and the site of America's first-ever women's right's convention in 1848. Earlier this month, the Hall of Fame announced the actress would be among its class of 2019. Citing Fonda's actions during the Vietnam War, Seneca Falls Supervisor Greg Lazzaro released a resolution Thursday morning that would pull the town's support out of respect for veterans in the community. The resolution, which is expected to be proposed at next week's town board meeting, was released to...

    The town supervisor for a small town in upstate New York is set to propose a resolution that will drop the town's financial support for the National Women's Hall of Fame over the hall's decision to induct actress Jane Fonda. Fonda was announced earlier this month as a member of the 2019 class along with nine other women including late Congresswoman Louise Slaughter and prominent attorney Gloria Allred. Back in 1972, Fonda sparked controversy, that follows her to this day, over her decision to visit Hanoi, the enemy capital, during the Vietnam War, as part of a protest against U.S....

    Ireland will take back extremists who have travelled to fight with terrorist groups like Isil, Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has said. While he indicated each case would have to be considered on its own merits, Mr Varadkar said this country shouldn’t expect our citizens “to be somebody else’s problem”. An estimated half-dozen Irish passport holders are believed to be still operating on behalf of Islamic State (Isil) in Syria.

    For Christmas I gave myself several books on World War II that I had read about in the Wall Street Journal Weekend edition. One of the books was James M. Scott's latest book "Rampage" about the battle for Manila in January and February of 1945. I have read my share of books on the war and of the atrocities committed by both the Germans and Japanese during the war. Scott's book on what happened during the battle for Manila was without a doubt the most detailed book I have ever read. It literally made me sick to read what the...

    At the same time that localities across the country are in the process of erasing monuments to Confederates and slave-owners, New York City is preparing to honor a black man who ordered the murder of every white man, woman, and child under his control, resulting in 3,000 to 5,000 race homicides. Seth Barron reports at City Journal: In New York City, street co-namings – in which a thoroughfare takes on an additional, ceremonial name in honor of a distinguished figure – rarely generate much fuss, and their approval is typically pro forma.  But yesterday, a city council committee voted to co-name...

The company, whose Syrian subsidiary allegedly paid the armed groups through middlemen, has also been charged with endangering the lives of former employees at the cement plant in Jalabiya, northern Syria. {snip} Lafarge is suspected of paying nearly 13 million euros ($16 million) to IS and other militant groups to keep the Jalabiya plant running long after other French companies had pulled out of Syria.

    Federal authorities on Wednesday began legal proceedings to strip U.S. citizenship from two Bosnians, including one living in Oregon, for war crimes including executing civilians during that country’s civil war in the 1990s. The move by the U.S. Justice Department comes years after Rasema Handanovic and Edin Dzeko were extradited and later convicted by courts in Bosnia and Herzegovina in 2011. After serving her sentence, Handanovic returned to Beaverton, Oregon, according to a statement from the Justice department, while Dzeko has not yet been released by Bosnian authorities. The department filed denaturalization lawsuits against the pair in federal courts in...

  • Rio Tinto accused over Bougainville 'war crimes'

    A US federal appeals court has revived a lawsuit seeking to hold Rio Tinto responsible for human rights violations and thousands of deaths linked to a Bougainville copper and gold mine it once ran. The appeals court has returned the case to US District Judge Margaret Morrow in Los Angeles for further proceedings. But some dissenting judges protested against allowing a lawsuit to proceed in federal courts brought by non-US residents against non-US companies such as Rio Tinto, which has corporate offices in the UK and Australia. The case is one of several in which non-US residents seek to hold...
