University Warns Over ‘Inappropriate’ Lavatory Habits – Blaming Foreign Students For Defecating In The Showers And Garbage Cans

ew

The memo was emailed to 400 students and 250 staff at Strathclyde University.  It reminded them that ‘all bodily fluids’ needed to be ‘disposed down the toilet’.  The memo singled out the ‘different practices’ of foreign students.  But a university spokeswoman later hurriedly apologized for the email.

Students at one of Scotland’s top universities have been told off for pooing in showers and bins.

Bosses at Strathclyde University were forced to send a memo to the 400 students and 250 staff  asking them to stop with their ‘inappropriate’ toilet habits.

The memo, posted on Thursday, was sent by the operations management team of the University’s Technology and Innovation Centre.

Swedish Police Attacked By 100 Masked Migrants

The beginnings of another no go zone in Sweden.

Swedish police in the city of Trollhattan were attacked by up to a hundred masked migrant youths armed with sticks and bats during a riot in the Kronogården suburb on Thursday.

The masked migrant youths attacked the officers during the second night of rioting in the area. They also attacked the officer’s vehicles, slashing the tyres of two police cars. Only one man was arrested in connection with the riots, Swedish paper Aftonbladetreports.

The riot is said to have dramatically escalated after several youths attempted to set a tyre on fire in the street and a security guard intervened to put out the fire. The guard was then attacked by the youths who threw stones at him.

Peter Asp, the communications officer for the City of Trollhattan, said the riots were “power struggle for territory in the district” among rival gangs. He claimed that the young men rioting were Somali migrants, while the police have only said the men come originally from an Arabic speaking country.

Police believe that the riots were sparked by an incident earlier in the week, when children were taken away from their parents by protective services. An administrative court ruled that the parents of the children had physically and psychologically assaulted them.

One resident described the riots saying, “they drove a police car and threw stones at it. I’m a little scared, and it’s really hard. I can not sleep at night, that night I slept only three hours.” BreitBart

Qatar

An interesting article on Qatar.

Beneficiaries of Qatar money;  The Brookings Institution, the Clinton Foundation, US academia, and the Pentagon.

Arguably, Qatar’s role in undermining the stability of the Islamic world has been second only to Iran’s.

Beginning in the 1995, after the Pars gas field was discovered and quickly rendered Qatar the wealthiest state in the world, the Qatari regime set about undermining the Sunni regimes of the Arab world by among other things, waging a propaganda war against them and against their US ally and by massively funding terrorism.

The Qatari regime established Al Jazeera in 1996.

Despite its frequent denials, the regime has kept tight control on Al Jazeera’s messaging. That messaging has been unchanging since the network’s founding. The pan-Arab satellite station which reaches hundreds of millions of households in the region and worldwide, opposes the US’s allies in the Sunni Arab world. It supports the Muslim Brotherhood and every terrorist group spawned by it. It supports Iran and Hezbollah.

Al Jazeera is viciously anti-Israel and anti-Jewish.

It serves as a propaganda arm not only of al-Qaida and Hezbollah but of Hamas, Islamic Jihad and any other group that attacks the US, Israel, Europe and other Western targets…

As for the regime itself, it has massively financed jihadist groups for more than 20 years. Qatar is a major bankroller not only of al-Qaida and Hamas but of militias associated with ISIS in Iraq and Syria. In a State Department cable from 2009 published by WikiLeaks, US diplomats referred to Qatar as the largest funder of terrorism in the world.

According to the Financial Times, the straw that broke the camel’s back for the Saudis and their allies was their discovery that in April, Qatar paid Iran, its Iraqi militias and al-Qaida forces in Syria up to a billion dollars to free members of the royal family held captive in southern Iraq and 50 terrorists held captive in Syria.

Given Qatar’s destabilizing and pernicious role in the region and worldwide in everything related to terrorism funding and incitement, Trump’s statement on Tuesday in support of the Sunnis against Qatar was entirely reasonable. What can the US do other than stand by its allies as they seek to coerce Qatar to end its destabilizing and dangerous practices? The case for supporting the Saudis, Egyptians, the UAE and the others against Qatar becomes all the more overwhelming given their demands.

The Sunnis are demanding that Qatar ditch its strategic alliance with Iran. They demand that Qatar end its financial support for terrorist groups and they demand that Qatar expel terrorists from its territory.

If Qatar is forced to abide by these demands, its abandonment of Iran in particular will constitute the single largest blow the regime in Tehran has absorbed in recent memory. Among other things, Qatar serves as Iran’s banker and diplomatic proxy.

If the story began and ended here, then Trump’s anti-Qatari stance would have been the obvious and only move. Beyond being the right thing to do, if Qatar’s regime is overthrown or emasculated, the development would mark the most significant achievement to date against the Iranian axis of jihad.

Unfortunately, the situation is not at all simple.

First there is the problem of Doha’s relations with key Americans and American institutions.

Ahead of the 2016 US elections, WikiLeaks published documents which disclosed that the emir of Qatar presented Bill Clinton with a $1 million check for the Clinton Foundation as a gift for his 65th birthday. During Hillary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state, Qatar reportedly contributed some $6m. to the Clinton Foundation.

Clinton, for her part, was deeply supportive of the regime and of Al Jazeera. For instance, in testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in 2011, Clinton praised Al Jazeera for its leading role in fomenting and expanding the protests in Egypt that brought down Mubarak.

Clinton wasn’t the only one that Qatar singled out for generosity. Since the 1990s, Qatar has invested hundreds of millions of dollars in US universities. Six major US universities have campuses in Doha.

Then there is the Brookings Institution. The premier US think tank had a revolving door relationship with the Obama and Clinton administrations.

In 2014, The New York Times reported that Brookings, which opened a branch in Doha in 2002, had received millions of dollars in contributions from Qatar. In 2013 alone, the Qatari regime contributed $14.8 million to Brookings…

There is also the Pentagon.

In the 1990s, Qatar spent more than $1b. constructing the Al Udeid Air Base outside of Doha.

It is the most sophisticated air force base in the region. In 2003, the base replaced Saudi Arabia’s Prince Sultan Air Base as headquarters for the US military’s Central Command. Since 2003, all US operations in Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria are controlled from the base.  Full article at FrontPageMag

 

Rep. Steve Scalise Was In ‘Imminent Risk Of Death’ After Shooting, Doctor Says

Rep. Steve Scalise and Matt Mika are still in the hospital.

Four people were wounded by gunfire and two sustained other injuries, authorities said.

A single bullet traveled across Scalise’s pelvis, fractured bones, injured internal organs and caused severe bleeding, the hospital said, and he was transported in shock to the medical center.

Scalise, 51, was one of four people shot by the gunman Wednesday. The others were Capitol Police Officer Crystal Griner, who was shot in the ankle; Matt Mika, a Tyson Foods lobbyist, who’s in intensive care with chest wounds; and congressional staffer Zachary Barth, who was hit in the leg and is out of the hospital. Barth’s boss, Rep. Roger Williams, R-Texas, twisted his ankle during the shooting, and Capitol Police Officer David Bailey also sustained a minor injury.

Mika, who had also been in critical condition, is now in serious condition, which is an improvement, according to a spokeswoman for George Washington University Hospital. CBSNews

According to doctors, Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise was in “imminent risk of death” when he arrived at MedStar Washington Hospital on Tuesday and endured several operations to steam a potentially fatal wound to his midsection that threatened numerous vital organs.

Dr. Jack Sava, the chief trauma surgeon, said that Scalise was in shock when he was taken there after being shot during a Congressional baseball practice.

Medstar doctors reported that Scalise remains in critical condition with more surgeries to come but they “are encouraged by improvement in his condition.”

Sava said the “risk of death” is less now than it was days ago, at which time he could have died of his wounds.  DailyCaller

Abducted Christina Reunited With Her Parents After 3 years

A six-year old Iraqi Christian girl, kidnapped by Islamic State when she was three, was reunited with her family on Friday, and getting used to saying “mum” and “dad” once more.  “The best day of my life is the day when Christina came back,” said her mother, Aida Nuh, on Saturday.

Dark circles around her eyes are evidence of sleepless nights since August 2014, when the militants snatched Christina from her, a few weeks after overrunning the town of Qaraqosh, 15 km (10 miles) southeast of Mosul.

“She stayed three years with the terrorists. Of course she forgot who her mother is, who her father is, that we are her family, but she will learn again.”

Islamic State has kidnapped thousands of men, women and children from Iraq’s minorities, mainly Yazidis. Reuters

After almost three years in captivity, an Iraqi Christian girl abducted by the Islamic State in August 2014 has finally been reunited with her parents.

Christina Abada, who is about to celebrate her sixth birthday, was welcomed home at around 10am this morning, local time. Locals say she was released by the Iraqi Special Forces.

“It is a very happy moment; everybody is dancing and clapping and singing,” one Christian woman told a World Watch Monitor contact from the Ashti refugee camp, near Erbil, where her parents have lived for the past two years.

“She looks OK, quite healthy. I believe she must have been in the house of a family who took good care of her. She was even wearing gold earrings, so it must have been a wealthy family,” she added.

But there was one note of caution.

“Although everybody was very happy, it was also sad to see that Christina herself is in shock about all the people around her,” the woman said. “Everybody is asking questions and speaking to her, but she does not say anything back, really. She also seems to be overwhelmed by the huge crowd of people welcoming her.”

In the below clip, posted on Twitter by local journalist Steven Nabil, Christina’s mother thanks people around the world for praying for them, and praises God that Christina is now home.

Background

Christina was abducted in August 2014, when IS overran Iraq’s second city, Mosul, and then swept into the Christian city of Qaraqosh in the Nineveh Plains, where the Abadas lived. Prior to IS’s occupation, it was the largest Christian city in Iraq.

Hundreds of thousands of Christians and other minorities had already fled the northern region. Christina’s family, however, stayed behind because the father, Khader, is blind. Other Christians too old or frail to flee also stayed, hoping for a measure of mercy from the invaders – a hope which was misplaced.

On 22 August, militants rounded up the Christians, saying they would receive medical check-ups. World Watch Monitor learnt how events unfolded for Christina’s mother, Ayda. Several times, she said, IS fighters pointed at her, with Christina in her lap.

Someone gave an order to take out any gold or valuables. The Christians produced whatever they had brought – money, gold, clothes, ID cards. The IS militants took it all.

As the Christians were bundled into a bus whose windows were smeared with dirt, a jihadist walked up to Ayda. He took her little girl from her arms and just walked away.

Ayda pleaded for her daughter, but the man others called ‘emir‘ – or chief – waved Ayda away with a despising gesture. At gunpoint, she was forced back onto the bus.

Until today, that was the last time Christina’s parents had seen her.

Rumours and pain

For the first two years of Christina’s abduction, there were regular rumours that she was still alive, but over the past year those rumours had begun to dry up, increasing fears about her fate.

A year after her abduction, her parents told a contact for the charity Open Doors about their pain of not being able to celebrate with their daughter on her fourth birthday.

“My biggest joy would be when my child, Christina, would return to us,” Ayda said.

A year later, in September 2016, Ayda said “part of our heart is missing“.

“I fear my Christine grows older without me, that I will never see her again,” she added.

Always in mind

During her absence, Christina was always on the minds of Ayda and the other family members. She even featured in a play Qaraqosh residents wrote and performed in Erbil as a cathartic approach to their trauma.

“Christina, where have you been, beautiful?” one of the characters, Moshtak, said to a girl in a blood-stained dress. “Your mother is looking for you. She looked for you everywhere. Where did they take you, beautiful?”

“Can any of you bring Christina back to her mother?” Moshtak asked, before ending on a hopeful note, reminding the audience that, one day, “she will wear a new dress.”

The play was referencing the time when Christina will receive a new life in heaven, but for her parents and the rest of the community, today is a day they rejoice that there is still life for her, here on Earth.

Historic August 21st Eclipse

It will cross the US from west to east, beginning at Lincoln Beach, Oregon.

On August 21st, a total solar eclipse will pass from coast-to-coast through the continental United States for the first time in nearly a century.

The event will be visible to millions of people as it crosses through 14 states, with the path of totality stretching from Lincoln Beach, Oregon, to Charleston, South Carolina.

However, forecasters say there may be a problem that scuppers the plans of millions – cloud…

‘We found that the coasts could be susceptible to cloudier conditions and that increased cloud cover may be possible as the eclipse travels across the country east of the Mississippi River.

At its totality, the sun will be completely blocked by the moon, leaving only the ‘pearly white rays’ of its elusive corona visible to the naked eye – but, even in areas set to experience the longest duration of totality, the sun will only be fully covered for less than three minutes.

To be sure you don’t miss out on the rare event, scientists have revealed many ways to prepare, from what time the eclipse will pass through your city, to when you should put on your safety glasses. 

While entirety of the event will only be seen along the 70-mile-wide path of totality, even viewers outside the range will be able to see a partial solar eclipse.

The latter will be visible all across North America, and even in parts of South America, Africa, and Europe, according to NASA

There, the total solar eclipse will begin at 10:16 a.m. (PDT).

The phenomenon will then cross through the US over the course of roughly an hour and a half, passing through Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, and North and South Carolina.

It will end near Charleston, South Carolina, at 2:48 p.m. (EDT), according to NASA.

While the totality itself will last just a few minutes, the eclipse  – from start to finish – will span more than an hour as the moon moves in and out of the sun’s path, giving rise to a series of crescents along the way.

It’s not enough just to know where to see it, though.

Viewers must also be prepared with the proper gear to protect their eyes during the event. DailyMail

The New York Shakespeare Festival – Received $30M From Taxpayers

Anyone surprised?

After learning that an actor dressed to look just like his father gets brutally murdered on stage in a production of William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, Donald Trump, Jr. asked, “I wonder how much of this ‘art’ is funded by taxpayers?”

Well, thanks to some digging by Adam Andrzejewski, founder of the federal watchdog OpenTheBooks.com, we now know the answer:

Data at OpenTheBooks.com shows that over $4.1 million in federal, state and city grants funded the New York Shakespeare Festival (NYSF) – the parent company to Public Theater and its production, Shakespeare in the Park – over the past three years. The total amount since 2009? Nearly $30 million.

The National Endowment of the Arts (NEA) sought to ensure the Trumps that it had not funded this performance, but failed to disclose grants totaling $630,000 to NYSF over the last eight years. Such “art” couldn’t be made possible without those funds.

These public theaters don’t charge admission and like to thank “generous donors” for their part in keeping art free to the public. However, the controversial stunt pulled onstage caused Bank of American and Delta to pull support. But the NYSF is doing just fine, as Andrzejewski points out:

Posted OpenTheBooks.com data reveals that state and city agencies gave the largest amounts of government grants to NYSF. Since 2010, New York City gave NYSF $23.5 million to build and renovate their public theater and funded an additional $5 million as ‘payments to cultural institutions.’ Over the past three years, the New York state agency ‘Council on the Arts’ chipped in $310,000…

According to IRS990 disclosures, NYSF paid-out nearly $20 million in compensation, with $912,646 going to just three highly-compensated employees. Top pay went to Oskar Eustis, the theater’s artistic director and director of this summer’s Julius Caesar. Eustis earned $381,993. Patrick Willingham, the theater’s executive director, received the second-highest amount: $327,088. TruthRevolt

Fort Worth, Texas Police Officers, Strangers Buy 95-year-old Man New Air Conditioner

Julius Hatley is a 95-year-old World War II vet.

With temperatures topping 90 degrees in Fort Worth, Texas, last week, residents without air conditioning certainly had a lot to complain about, especially 95-year-old Julius Hatley.

But Hatley made the best of his situation, sitting on his porch in the shade to keep cool. He even continued his yard work, despite the unbearable heat.

On Thursday, the 95-year-old’s luck took a turn.

Drenched in sweat, the man called the Fort Worth Police Department to report his broken air conditioner.

“This wasn’t a regular 911 call,” Fort Worth Officer William Margolis told CBS News. “It was what you’d label ‘low priority’ because we’re not AC techs.”

After responding to a few other calls first, Margolis and his partner, Christopher Weir, made their way to Hatley’s home, where they discovered both his central air conditioning and window unit were broken.

“When we got there around 8:30 a.m. his house was 85 to 90 degrees already,” Margolis said. “In Texas, it gets hot.”

After talking over the situation with his partner, Margolis promised the man he’d find a solution. In the meantime, Hatley tried his best to keep from overheating.

“It went out last night… so I had to sit on my porch,” Hatley told CBS Dallas/Fort Worth. “My porch is cool.”

Margolis couldn’t shake the image of the elderly man sitting in his home in the sweltering heat, so he decided to make a pit stop at Home Depot and Weir agreed.

The officers asked employees for help finding a good air conditioning unit, explaining Hatley’s situation in the process.  The Home Depot workers were so touched by the officers’ kind gesture, they offered to pitch in their own money, too.

“While there, Home Depot managers and employees decided to contribute $150 of their own money to help with the cause,” Weir’s wife, Jennifer, wrote on Facebook. “This is what being an officer is about.”

Weir, along with another co-worker, Officer Steven Rebrovich, helped Margolis install the air conditioning unit inside Hatley’s home later that day. CBSNews

Looking Out For Others

“He was actually really excited,” Margolis said. “He said he knew if he needed help to call 911 and we actually were able to help him, so he was really excited about it.” SpringFieldNews

Jennifer Weir (Officer Weir’s wife) told CBS News. “We are also currently working on getting his windows replaced, his house repainted and groceries every week.”

Bernie Fan Thwarted In Attempt To Massacre GOP Congressional Baseball Team

Update:  Video — Mark Steyn: Left wants to denormalize, dehumanize opponents

James Hodgkinson (killed by police), Trump-hating Bernie supporter, attempted a massacre of a GOP Congressional Baseball Team practicing for a planned charity game.  It was fortunate that House Majority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise ( R-La) was at the practice game, his security detail of Capital Police were there.  Their armed response, both were wounded, prevented a massacre.  The DailyMail reported that Hodgkinson fired up to 100 rounds.

House majority whip Steve Scalise’s condition has been downgraded to critical.

Michigan Rep. Mike Bishop earlier described how one man – thought to be part of Scalise’s Capitol Police protection detail – stood his ground to return fire as the congressmen and at least one of their children dove for cover in a dugout and Scalise dragged himself across the field after being hit, leaving a trail of blood behind him.  DailyMail

 

Flashback:  Climate of Hate

Just hours after Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was shot in Tucson, Ariz.  in 2011 by Jared Loughner, an insane man, that the left media began a campaign against the “climate of hate” allegedly fostered by Sarah Palin.  There was no evidence that Loughner, a schizophrenic, was inspired by Palin.

Clarence Dupnik, the Democrat sheriff of Pima County after Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was shot:
“We need to do some soul-searching. It’s the vitriolic rhetoric that we hear day in and day out from people in the radio business and some people in the TV business. When you look at unbalanced people, how they respond to the vitriol that comes out of certain mouths about tearing down the government, the anger, the hatred, the bigotry that goes on in this country is getting to be outrageous.”

The Present:  The Left reacts to Scalise shooting with predictable viciousness.

In the wake of the shooting, lots of people on the Internet lost their minds. Several progressives even went out of their way to suggest the victims deserved to get shot because they have the wrong views on gun control, or Obamacare, or Donald Trump. Here are some of the most insane reactions to the Congressional baseball shooting so far.

Newsweek seemed to think the most important fact about the shooting is that one of the victims supported Donald Trump. The Federalist

Markos Moulitsas, founder of Daily Kos and Vox, responded today to a year old tweet from Sen. Rand Paul who was quoting Judge Napolitano:  “Why do we have a Second Amendment?  It’s not to shoot deer. It’s to shoot at the government when it becomes tyrannical.”

Vilification and dehumanizing discourse to condoning violence.  The Left is a nonstop hate fest from Berkeley to a baseball field in Virginia to New York.

Huff Post Writer:

James Hodgkinson did this shooting and he did it for ideological reasons.  He asked Rep. Ron DeSantis , “Are those Republicans or Democrats out there practicing?”

All political goals and discourse that promotes and uses force should be condemned! Continue reading Bernie Fan Thwarted In Attempt To Massacre GOP Congressional Baseball Team

Poll Shows Nearly Half of Millennials Open To Government Removing Children From Homes That Won’t Support Transgender Transitioning

This is what fascism looks like today in America.

Gender dysphoria is a mental illness, it is not a life style choice.

On Monday, Whatsgoodly released the results of a poll regarding the views of millennials on a crucial issue of governmental intrusion: do young Americans believe that the government should “remove children from homes where the parents refuse to provide resources for gender transition?”

This issue has become a hot button of late thanks to a piece of legislation in Canada that gives the government the capacity to do just that.

he results are stunning. Fully 18% of the 1,402 respondents answered yes; another 27% said they were unsure. Among female respondents, a majority stated that children should either be removed from the home (21%), or they were unsure (33%). A whopping 60% of Clinton voters felt the same way; just 7% of those who voted for Trump said yes, and 15% said they were unsure. Among self-described liberals, 47% said they were either in favor of government removal (10%) or unsure about it (37%).

All in all, this means that nearly half of all millennials polled were open to the idea that the government should forcibly intervene in a family if parents refuse to cater to the transgender notions of their children. It should be noted that the question involved no age restrictions. DailyWire
