This Week in the World Affairs Brief:

DOMESTIC TERROR HINDERS UN REFUGEE AGENDA

As the UN General Assembly held a “Summit on Refugees and Migrants,” two violent attacks by Muslim residents of the US effectively thwarted any positive reception among the American public to this major propaganda event which pushed for all member states, especially the US, to permanently relocate hundreds of thousands of refugees to their home countries. Every time another young Muslim gets influenced by government agent-provocateurs to go off on a berserk killing spree, the public correctly concludes that young Muslims males don’t adequately assimilate into Western culture, and pose a threat of instability and violence. But what is even more interesting to observe is that globalist tactics to keep Americans fearing domestic terror and to be more accepting of Muslim refugees are working at cross purposes with each other. This week I’ll explain why these two evil agendas can’t be coordinated closely leading to these kinds of conflicting impacts.

Eight examples where 'fact-checking' became opinion journalism

posted by askousen - Tuesday, September 27 2016
...Why you ask? Because most "fact-checkers" are merely liberal journalists looking to prove their preconceived narrative. They cherry-pick the statements to "fact-check" and then decide which data to back it up with. Statistics can be manipulated - for every study coming out of the Brookings Institute, the Heritage Foundation can have a counter argument, depending on the methodology and surveys used. Moreover, much of what they decide to "fact-check" is subjective at best. Nothing that can be pinned down with undisputed data. — Washington Times

The FBI Investigation of EmailGate Was a Sham

posted by askousen - Tuesday, September 27 2016
NSA Analyst: We now have incontrovertible proof the Bureau never had any intention of prosecuting Hillary Clinton ...Now it turns out the FBI granted immunity to much bigger fish in the Clinton political tank. Three more people got a pass from the Bureau in exchange for their cooperation: Hillary lawyer Heather Samuelson, State Department IT boss John Bental, and – by far the most consequential – Cheryl Mills, who has been a Clinton flunky-cum-factotum for decades. Mills served as the State Department's Chief of Staff and Counselor throughout Hillary's tenure as our nation's top diplomat. Granting her immunity in EmailGate, given her deep involvement in that scandal – including the destruction of tens of thousands of emails so they could not be handed over to the FBI – now seems curious, to say the least, particularly because Mills sat in on Hillary’s chat with the Bureau regarding EmailGate. — Observer

Mall shooting suspect was 'zombie-like' when arrested, officials say

posted by askousen - Tuesday, September 27 2016
...At a news conference, officials said they had not ruled out any possible motives for why 20-year-old Arcan Cetin allegedly shot four women and one man at the Cascade Mall in Burlington Friday evening. Island County Sheriff's Lt. Mike Hawley told reporters that he spotted Cetin near the suspect's home in Oak Harbor, around 30 miles due west of the mall. Hawley said he immediately recognized Cetin as the suspect, turned his patrol car around and arrested Cetin without incident. "He said nothing," said Hawley, who added that Cetin was unarmed and carrying a computer in a satchel when he was apprehended. "He was kind of zombie-like." Mount Vernon Police Lt. Chris Cammock said Cetin had immigrated to the U.S. from Turkey and was a "legal permanent resident." — Fox News

After New York Attack, Congress Wants TSA to Secure Amtrak, Buses

posted by askousen - Tuesday, September 27 2016
...Several U.S. senators want the TSA to focus more attention and resources on rail, highway, and marine transportation, which would mean greater security oversight at such places as Amtrak stations and Megabus coach stops. A bipartisan bill introduced Thursday by Senator John Thune (R-S.D.) would require the TSA to use a risk-based security model for these transport modes and to budget money based on those risks. It would require a wider use of the agency's terrorist watch list by train operators and more detailed passenger manifests along with tighter screening of marine employees. The legislation also would increase the TSA's canine use by as many as 70 dog-handler teams for surface transportation. — Bloomberg

FBI Lies Again: NYC Bomber Was On FBI "Radar" After All

posted by askousen - Friday, September 23 2016
During a press conference yesterday morning, amid desperate efforts to placate political pressure to maintain the narrative of a lone-wolf bomber - not terrorist - who may have "had a beef" and just happened to be a muslim, William Sweeney, the assistant director in charge of the FBI's New York division, stated unequivocally: "There is no indication that the suspect was on the FBI's terror radar" adding that there was "no indication that there's a [terrorist] cell operating" in the New York area and had no information about Ahmad Khan Rahami's "path to radicalization." Phew - so we can rest assured that all the money spent on systems and surveillance was not wasted and this was perhaps just some mentally unstable man (who just happened to be Muslim and taken a trip or two to Afghanistan). — ZeroHedge

Obama Used His Final UN Address To Promote A 'Liberal World Order' And A Palestinian State

posted by askousen - Friday, September 23 2016
During Barack Obama's eighth and final address to the United Nations he let his true colors show. He staunchly defended globalism, he took several not very subtle shots at Donald Trump, and he boldly declared that Israel "cannot permanently occupy and settle Palestinian land". That statement about "Palestinian land" was extremely alarming to many, because there are indications that Obama may decide to support a UN Security Council resolution that establishes the parameters for a Palestinian state during his final months in the White House. Barack Obama has promised to squeeze every ounce of "change" out of the remainder of his term that he possibly can, and his last UN speech showed what is on his heart at this moment. — End of The American Dream

Bomb Suspect Spent Time In Afghanistan And Had Money Trouble
