Terror: Truck Rams Pedestrians In Stockholm

A beer truck was hijacked and plowed into crowds of people outside Stockholm’s largest shopping center.  Up to three men were seen leaping from the truck and opening fire on officers and pedestrians at around 3pm.  Two suspects were filmed being arrested but a third man seen on CCTV is still on the run and hiding.  Prime minister Stefan Lofven says the truck crash “is an act of terror”.

Up to five people are believed to have been killed in a terrorist attack when a stolen truck rammed into shoppers in Stockholm before running through the city centre shooting at and stabbing pedestrians.

Three men were seen leaping from the lorry and opening fire on police who had surrounded the hijacked vehicle at around 3pm local time.

Police said the vehicle crashed into a group of people on the street outside a shopping centre after racing down six streets.

Hundreds of shoppers were seen fleeing for their lives after the articulated truck rammed into the corner of the building. Dozens were believed to have been injured.

The driver was said by witnesses to be wearing a balaclava. Two suspects are thought to have been arrested.  At least one man is believed to be on the run wearing a green jacket, white shoes and a grey hoodie. DailyMail

 

Dr. Ben Carson Finds $520 Billion In Errors During Audit of HUD

The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) fixed $520 Billion in accounting errors but still could not document its spending.  HUD’s financial records are in such bad shape HUD’s Inspector General (IG) was unable to complete its audit.

Despite officials from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) correcting $520 billion in bookkeeping errors, the department’s financial records have been so poorly kept that HUD’s inspector general (IG) cannot complete an audit of them.

According to a new report from the IG, HUD officials cleaned up $3.4 billion in errors from its 2015 financial records and $516.4 billion in errors from 2016, after the IG was unable to issue an opinion on either year’s financial statements in December.  DailyCaller

The level of incompetence is amazing and shocking. HUD seems to have ignored all financial accountability practice.

The IG remained unable to issue an opinion on HUD’s financial statements even after giving the department an extension and receiving a resubmission from HUD three months later with the reported issues unresolved.

The continued problems, the IG said, “were due to an inability to establish a compliant control environment, implement adequate financial accounting systems, retain key financial staff, and identify appropriate accounting principles and policies.” DailyCaller

Foreign-Born Feminists In Sweden Flee No-Go Zones

Sweden has the status of rape capital of Europe.  55 areas in Sweden have been labeled no-go zones.

The feminists moving out of no-go zones are not native Swedes.   Swedish politician Nalin Pekgul was born in Turkey and no longer feels safe in the Stockholm suburb of Tensta she has lived in for over 30 years.

There is a statistic overrepresentation of immigrants and those of foreign descent in the rape statistics. Native born feminist in Swedish blame men. Not immigrants. Men.  To say otherwise is to be labeled a racist.

The attention on these particular assaults has put many Swedish feminists in an uncomfortable place. They don’t want to play down the very real threat of sexual violence that all men potentially pose, but they don’t want that threat used as a political weapons against refugees. “It is very dangerous to racialize sexual harassment,” says Tiina Rosenberg, a founding member of Sweden’s feminist party, the Feminist Initiative, and a gender scholar and professor at Stockholm University. “There is a long post-colonial history of the white patriarchy trying to rescue the brown women from the brown men… There is a lot of [similar] racialized talk in the making today that is anti-migration, and we should be very careful about that. We should talk about all the harrassment against women. We should object and protest, but we should not make the distinction about people from another ethnic background that they are more violent than we are… because otherwise we find ourselves in a place of saying: ‘I’m not a racist, but…'” Time

Feminists in Stockholm are leaving areas like the notorious migrant-heavy no-go zones of Husby and Tensta because they say religious fundamentalists now rule those suburbs.

Nalin Pekgul is a self-described feminist and former member of parliament for the left wing Swedish Social Democrats. For over 30 years, she lived in the Stockholm suburb of Tensta but says that she no longer feels safe there. She claims Muslim fundamentalists have taken over and she doesn’t feel she can visit the centre of Tensta without being harassed, Swedish broadcaster SVT reports.

According to Ms. Pekgul, the situation for women in public life in the area has deteriorated over the past several years. She noted that there has been a rise in religious fundamentalism amongst the men in the area, many of whom come from migrant backgrounds. Pekgul attempted to combat the trend by organising coffee shop meetings but soon abandoned the idea.

“In Tensta I am a known face and I have no desire to stir up trouble when I get harassed,” Pekgul said explaining why she no longer goes into the centre of the suburb. When asked if she will remain in the suburb, she said: “I always hope that it will blow over. One should never forget that the vast majority here are cursing the fundamentalists.”

Zeliha Dagli, a former Left Party politician, did end up moving from the no-go suburb of Husby. Dagli described Husby as having self-appointed “morality police” who attempt to control women’s behaviour in the area.  BreitBart

Canada Is Harvesting The Organs Of Euthanasia Patients

The dark world of euthanasia.

A recent push in Canada to encourage euthanasia patients to donate their organs appears to be working.

In Ontario, the first province to report data, 26 people who died by lethal injection decided to donate tissue or organs since the Medical Aid in Dying Act (MAID) came into effect last June, according to the National Post. A total of 388 people have chosen to die by lethal injection in Ontario, over half of the 744 total Canadians who have been euthanized.

Proponents of linking organ harvesting to euthanasia point to the shortage of organ transplants readily available and the lower cost associated with euthanasia than with end-of-life care.

Canadian ethicists Julie Allard and Marie-Chantal Fortin encouraged the joining of euthanasia with organ harvesting in an article in December’s Journal of Medical Ethics.

But even supporters acknowledge the potential unintended consequences. Allard and Fortin warned in their article that encouraging organ harvesting could put pressure on those diagnosed with terminal illness to consider assisted suicide as an alternative sense of purpose.

Jennifer Chandler, professor of policy and ethics at the University of Ottawa, said linking euthanasia with organ harvesting “might create pressure to continue with the MAID” and make it hard for terminally ill people to change their minds about taking their lives.

“The people in the euthanasia lobby want people to think of it as a social good,” Alex Schadenberg, director of the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition, said. Once people accept euthanasia, the logical next step is organ harvesting, Schadenberg noted. He pointed to the worldwide push for organ harvesting not hours or minutes after someone’s heart stops, but while their heart is still beating.

The practice — which supporters argue will allow the organ to better graft into recipient — is being considered in Belgium and is legal in the Netherlands if patients are brain-damaged and their death seems imminent. BPNews

Susan Rice ‘Unmasking’ Revelations’

It matters – eavesdropping on conversations for political reasons.

Unmasking and asking for spread sheets.

As fingers point to President Obama‘s national security adviser Susan Rice as the individual who requested the ‘unmasking’ of Trumpworld names on raw intelligence reports, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., today demanded that she testify before Congress.

‘I believe Susan Rice abused this system and she did it for political purposes,’ Paul said today on Morning Joe. ‘She needs to be brought in and questioned under oath.’

Bloomberg View columnist Eli Lake wrote that from her position as chief of the National Security Council, Rice asked government agencies to identify names that had been withheld from raw intelligence reports linked with Trump campaign and transition figures.

Monday evening, the Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group piggybacked on this reporting, writing that Rice had asked U.S. spy agencies for ‘detailed spreadsheets,’ of legal phone calls involving Trump and his aides during the presidential campaign, U.S. Attorney Joseph diGenova told the news site.  DailyMail

Susan Rice’s defense does not wash.

The thing to bear in mind is that the White House does not do investigations. Not criminal investigations, not intelligence investigations.

Remember that.

Why is that so important in the context of explosive revelations that Susan Rice, President Obama’s national-security adviser, confidant, and chief dissembler, called for the “unmasking” of Trump campaign and transition officials whose identities and communications were captured in the collection of U.S. intelligence on foreign targets?

Because we’ve been told for weeks that any unmasking of people in Trump’s circle that may have occurred had two innocent explanations: (1) the FBI’s investigation of Russian meddling in the election and (2) the need to know, for purposes of understanding the communications of foreign intelligence targets, the identities of Americans incidentally intercepted or mentioned. The unmasking, Obama apologists insist, had nothing to do with targeting Trump or his people.

That won’t wash.

3 major reasons the story matters

Despite bombshell reports yesterday claiming that Obama National Security Advisor Susan Rice “unmasked” members of the Trump campaign and Trump transition team while reviewing raw intelligence, that such unmasked information was widely distributed among top members of the Obama administration, and that Rice asked for continuous updates on communications between foreign targets and the Trump team after Trump won the Republican nomination, the media have decided that the story simply isn’t worth covering.

CNN’s Don Lemon stated that the media should not “aid and abet the people” creating a “diversion” over Susan Rice. As Newsbusters reports, CBS’ Margaret Brennan cited sources stating that Rice’s activity was perfectly normal and not improper. The New York Times echoed that claim. ABC News and NBC News didn’t cover the story at all.

But the story is huge.

Here are three reasons why.

1. The Obama Administration Targeted The Trump Team.

Cadbury Dropping Word ‘Easter’ From Egg Hunts

What cads.

Cadbury, founded by Quaker John Cadbury in 1824, is dropping the word “Easter” from its Easter egg hunts this year. Instead, this year’s Easter campaign will be called the “Cadbury’s Great British Egg Hunt.”

Britain’s National Trust will hot some 300 hunts, including those at the Black Country at Wightwick Manor and Moseley Old Hall in Wolverhampton. But anger is growing over the chocolate company’s decision to take Easter out of Easter.

And now, the prime minister has jumped into the middle of the row between Cadbury and the Church of England. She says Cadbury’s decision to drop Easter is “absolutely ridiculous.”

“I’m not just a vicar’s daughter I’m a member of the National Trust as well,” She said, according to The Sun newspaper.

“I think the stance they have taken is absolutely ridiculous. I don’t know what they are thinking about frankly. Easter’s very important. It’s important to me. It’s a very important festival for the Christian faith for millions across the world. So I think what the National Trust is doing is frankly just ridiculous.”  DailyWire

Removing any mention of religion in the public sphere is secularization. Removing Easter from the eggs removes any religious connotation.

And the link between Easter eggs and Jesus’ death and resurrection should be rather obvious. This is not because eggs have anything to do with Jesus’ resurrection, but it’s because hunting for Easter eggs is now a well-known tradition that occurs at Easter. And Easter is celebrated because of the resurrection of Christ. By removing Easter on the eggs, you’re removing whatever link it had to the holiday. Watch&Learn comment DailyWire

ACFI Survey: How Many Americans Have A Biblical Worldview?

By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?  Matthew 7:16

Everyone has a worldview, but we do not all share the same worldview. A worldview simply is the intellectual and emotional filter through which we experience, interpret, and respond to the world. Our worldview begins developing before we are two years old and is almost fully formed before we reach our teenage years. That worldview helps us to identify who we want to be, how we want to live, and what we consider to be right and good. We feel good about ourselves when we live in concert with that worldview; we feel uncomfortable when we make choices or engage in behaviors that conflict with our worldview. ACFI

The Worldview Measurement Project was the biggest national worldview survey ever conducted, by American Culture & Faith Institute (ACFI).  It found a huge gap between the number of Americans claiming to be Christian and the number that live biblically.  The survey found many Americans that profess Christianity could not pass Christianity 101.

The ACFI survey was three surveys that divided people into public, Spiritually Active Governance Engaged Conservative Christians (SAGE Cons), and theologically conservative pastors.  In the results is a group labeled “Integrated Disciples”,  who answered 80% or more of the questions in accordance with biblical principles  – “that is, people who are designated as having a biblical worldview based on integrating their beliefs and behavior into a lifestyle that reflects foundational biblical principles.”

The survey was divided between 20 “Christianity 101” questions about basic spiritual beliefs and 20 questions on behavior that is addressed in the Bible –  cheating, lying, cheating, pornography, stealing, the nature of God and the consequences of unresolved sin.

Barna noted. “Jesus taught His disciples that the right beliefs are good, but the real measure of where you stand is what He labeled the fruit of a person’s life, referring to the product of applying one’s convictions. As a result, we created this measurement process with the intention of blending both core beliefs and core behaviors to estimate the biblical consistency of peoples’ worldview. Because that process involves both beliefs and behavior, with the intention of being an imitator of Christ, we chose to call such people Integrated Disciples. They are effectively blending their beliefs and behavior into a Christ-like lifestyle.”

Results

The results were dismal. Continue reading ACFI Survey: How Many Americans Have A Biblical Worldview?

Australian Mother Expelled From ‘Multicultural Playgroup’ Because She’s White

NSW Department of Education funds the center.  Exclusion from a playgroup on the basis of race is racism!

Multiculturalism = Segregation

A mother in Australia has been forced to leave a playground with her kids after the officials told her they can’t play in a “multicultural group” because she’s white.

Tara Coverdale, a mother of two and currently living in Sydney, Australia, claims she was told to leave the playground because it was a multicultural playgroup and she’s a white Australian, according to The Daily Telegraph Australia.

The mother said went with her eight-month-old baby and her four-year-old son to Alexandria Park Community Centre located in the inner-city Sydney.

Shortly after she arrived to the community centre for a playgroup, a staff member approached her asking whether this was her first time. Rather than being welcoming, the staff member announced that Coverdale isn’t allowed to be there.

“I’m sorry you can’t come here. It’s a multicultural playgroup,” staff member said and asked, “Can I ask what your cultural background is?”

Coverdale, a blonde mother with freckles, replied saying she’s Australian, prompting the staff to deny her entry into the playground. “I’m sorry, you can’t come here. It’s for multicultural families and people who speak languages other than English at home.”

The mother refused to leave the playground, claiming her son was having a good time with a friend in the playground, asking “Why should I leave?”

She was then approached by Jo Fletcher, the centre’s facilitator, who asked the same question as the staff member: “Can I just ask what your cultural background is?”

“I’m sorry you can’t come here. It’s a multicultural playgroup,” Fletcher said after finding out Coverdale is a fourth-generation Australian…

Following the controversy, Education Minister Rob Stokes had instructed the centre to allow all families to attend the playground.

“I was disappointed to hear that a mum and her young child felt they were not welcome… This is not acceptable. Everyone, regardless of their background, should feel included in these wonderful community activities.” Heatst

Video: Russian Government Trolls Democratic Party In April Fools’ Day Prank Offering “Election Interference”

Good sense of humor.

Need some election interference? The Russian Foreign Ministry is ready to help — or so it says on April Fools’ Day.

On Saturday, the ministry posted on its Facebook page an audio file of the purported new automated telephone switchboard message for Russian embassies.

“To arrange a call from a Russian diplomat to your political opponent, press 1,” the recording begins, in Russian and English. Press 2 “to use the services of Russian hackers,” and 3 “to request election interference.”

The English portion of the recording begins 26 seconds into the video, with the title translated as “Answering machine for Russian diplomatic missions.”

A ministry duty officer, who did not give his name in line with official practice, confirmed to The Associated Press that the post was an official joke. CBSNews
