    The signs really began to become visible at the end of January, 2020; there was an exodus of people brewing, and it was galvanizing fears on both sides of the political spectrum. The pandemic situation is cited by the mainstream media as the primary cause, but in reality the migration had started at least 3 years earlier. Americans were leaving certain states and cities behind by the tens of thousands, and these places were predominantly leftist in their policies and population. California, New York, Illinois, New Jersey, Maryland, Massachusetts, Connecticut, etc.; all of these progressive states were bleeding residents since...
  • The Medieval Carpentry Techniques Used in Notre Dame Cathedral Rebuild

    CNA Staff, Sep 23, 2020 / 12:00 am MT (CNA).- After fire toppled the iconic spire and destroyed the roof of the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France in April 2009, heated debates ensued about whether the reconstruction should use the church’s original design, or use a more modern design and technique. Some proposed futuristic ideas included a rooftop swimming pool and a greenhouse atop the 850-year-old cathedral. Last year, the French Senate passed a bill mandating that Notre-Dame be rebuilt as it was before the fire, with lumber and medieval carpentry techniques, which were highlighted in a public demonstration...

    British investigators announced the arrest Monday of a 27-year-old man following a stabbing spree in the city of Birmingham that left one person dead and two more in critical condition. The suspect, who has not been identified by West Midlands Police, is being held on one count of suspicion of murder and seven counts of attempted murder stemming from the incidents that unfolded early Sunday morning in which the victims appeared to have been targeted at random. "To think that people going about enjoying their evening out were attacked by what appears to be a lone knifeman is truly dreadful,”...
  • Birmingham(UK) Stabbings: Witness Claims He Saw ‘Black Guy’ Stab Woman ‘Several Times’ in Neck

    09/06/2020 11:27:31 AM PDT · by rktman · 5 replies ^ | 9/6/2020 | Jack Montgomery
    A man claiming to be an eyewitness to part of the Birmingham stabbing spree says the suspect is a “black guy” and to have seen him stab a woman “several times in the neck”. Early eyewitness reports of a confusing night of violence in England’s second city linked the police-declared “major incident” to multi-ethnic street brawls featuring “many gunshots”, but police later said that they were seeking just one individual for the stabbings, which have so far left one man dead and seven people injured, two critically.

    A woman who made anti-Semitic remarks years ago on social media, including one tweet saying she’d purposely give the wrong medication to Jewish people, has had her medical certificate permanently revoked by the State Medical Board of Ohio. ...

Another translated tweet on Aug. 20, 2011 read: “Allah will take the Jews.”

    Economist Steve Moore says that people are migrating out of states like New York, Illinois, California, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania and Michigan, and into other states like Tennessee, Texas, Arizona, South Carolina and Florida. "People are voting with their feet against the policies of blue state America," he said during an interview on the John Solomon Reports podcast Moore, the author of the book "Trumponomics," noted the U.S. economy's strong performance prior to the COVID-19 pandemic and said he believes that president Trump will secure reelection. He said that when voters cast their ballots, "it's not gonna be a popularity...

    A Rwandan refugee could face up to 10 years in prison after admitting setting fire to Nantes cathedral. The 39-year-old man, who has solely been identified by his first name Emmanuel, worked as a volunteer security guard at the 15th-century Cathedral of Saint Peter and Saint Paint which set alight last week. Three fires had been started at the site on July 18 and it took 104 firefighters to control the blaze which tore through the building and caused millions of pounds worth of damage. The Rwandan refugee was questioned for a second time yesterday by prosecutors and he was...

    Archaeologists in Mexico found stone tools and other signs that people were living in North America 30,000 years ago, much earlier than widely believed, according to new research reshaping the debate over the origins of people in the Americas.In a study reported Wednesday, scientists led by archaeologist Ciprian Ardelean at Mexico’s University of Zacatecas said that they had unearthed hundreds of unusual green limestone spear points, blades and other implements from a lofty cavern in the central Mexican highlands. For wandering hunter-gatherers, the cave served as a makeshift tool shed possibly beginning as early as about 33,000 years ago, the...

    Following the drastic spike in migrant apprehensions along the U.S. southwestern border early last year, the federal government implemented measures resulting in an equally steep decrease of unauthorized entries into the country. These measures demonstrated their effectiveness in securing the border and deterring illegal migration—which enhances the safety of not only American residents, but also that of that of thousands of migrants who undertake such dangerous journeys and land in the hands of human smugglers and traffickers. However—and while not nearly as high as last year—the numbers have begun to rise again. In light of this, a question arises for...
  • UK Knife Crime Hits Record High, Murder Surges in Khan’s London

    Knife crime in England and Wales reached a historic high in the year leading up to the end of March, as murders climb again in Sadiq Khan’s London. Crimes committed with knives in Britain jumped 6 per cent over the previous year, with some 46,265 knife crimes being recorded in the year to March 2020 — when the British government locked down the nation in response to the Chinese coronavirus pandemic. The figures are in fact likely higher in reality, however, as Greater Manchester Police did not contribute their statistics to the Office for National Statistics (ONS) report. The surge...
  • Multi-disciplinary study provides evidence of forced migration by pre-colonial Incas

    Prior research has suggested that during the Late Horizon, a period of Inca history, the Inca rounded up people living outside of the Inca Empire and forced them to relocate to places inside the empire as a means of bolstering the population and thus the economy. Unfortunately, to date, evidence for such forced migrations has been scant. In this new effort, the researchers conducted a thorough investigation of the remains of six people buried in a cemetery in what was once a part of the Inca empire during the Late Horizon -- they suspected that all six were people who...

    A report compiled by members of the French Senate has detailed the spread of political Islam across France and listed 44 proposals to combat radical Islamist ideology. The report, which was written by the Commission of Inquiry on Islamist Radicalisation and the Means to Combat It, claims that radical Islamism “is polymorphous, penetrating into all aspects of social life and tends to impose a new social standard by taking advantage of individual freedom”. Senator Jacqueline Eustache-Brinio, a member of the centre-right Republicans, said that nearly all of France is affected by radical Islam, adding: “We cannot accept it. Now or...

    Swedish prime minister Stefan Löfven has rejected the idea of placing any limit on asylum applications, stating that such a proposal would be in contrary to supporting the right of asylum itself. The proposal to introduce an upper limit target for asylum applications was put forward by the centre-right Moderate Party. At first, Löfven and his left-liberal Social Democrats seemed to be on board with limiting the number of migrants able to apply for asylum in Sweden — but this caused conflict with their Green Party partners in the country’s coalition government. Prime Minister Löfven said he did not support...

    WASHINGTON -- The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, which is responsible for approving citizenship, work visas and other benefits for legal immigrants, has begun notifying 13,400 of its 20,000 employees that they will be furloughed beginning Aug. 3 unless Congress approves more funding, a spokesperson for the agency told NBC News. The agency runs largely on fees paid by applicants, which have been down by 50 percent during the COVID-19 pandemic and are estimated to be down by over 60 percent by the end of the fiscal year, the spokesperson said. "This dramatic drop in revenue has made it impossible...
