Video:  Robert Spencer vs. Richard Spencer: Counter-Jihad vs. White Supremacy

A number of journalists and bloggers have confused counter-jihadist Robert Spencer with white supremacist Richard Spencer, just as they confuse opposition to jihad terror with racism. In this video, Robert Spencer and David Wood discuss the differences between opposing terrorism and promoting race-based bigotry.

Gunman Attacks Saudi Security Forces At Gate Of Jeddah Royal Palace – Two Guards Shot Dead

Two Saudi guards were shot dead and three others injured on Saturday morning when a man drove up to the gate of the royal palace in Jeddah and began shooting, the interior ministry said in a statement carried by state news.

Royal Guards killed the gunman, who was identified in the statement as Mansour al-Amri, a 28-year-old Saudi national.

The attack occurred at a checkpoint outside the western gate to the Peace Palace in Jeddah, where the royal family conducts official business during the summer months.

Saudi King Salman is currently outside the kingdom on a state visit to Russia.

The statement did not elaborate on the whereabouts of his son, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, although recent state news reports have placed him in Jeddah.

Security forces seized Kalashnikov rifles and petrol bombs that had been in Amri’s possession.

Amri did not have a criminal record or any known connection to extremist groups, said Interior Ministry spokesman Mansour al-Turki, speaking by phone to al-Arabiya television.  DailyMail

Militant Public School Teacher Took Students To Antifa Protests, Lied About Absences

Yvette Felarca should be terminated.  She ” unauthorized after-school trip where she left a student behind and later.”   Felarca is indoctrinating students with her violent Antifa political ideas to students in a tax-payer funded school.   She should not be teaching any child.

Court documents show that the California public school teacher arrested last week at the University of California, Berkeley, on suspicion of battery and resisting arrest has since 2009 racked up a list of fire-worthy offenses, including recruiting students to participate in protests facilitated by the militant left-wing group, By Any Means Necessary, and transporting students to protests without permission in her personal vehicle.

Yvette Felarca (cited in some court documents as “Yvonne”), a Berkeley Unified School District middle school teacher, was arrested Sept. 26 during a Free Speech Week protest on campus that turned violent.

Felarca is already under indictment for “assault by means of force likely to inflict great bodily injury, participating in a riot, and inciting a riot” when she was caught on video punching a man in the stomach and screaming, “Get the f*** off our streets!” during a June 2016 white supremacist protest in Sacramento. Felarca later stated her actions were “not a crime.”

2016

Felarca is an outspoken leader of BAMN, an arm of the violent, self-proclaimed “anti-fascist” group Antifa. Felarca was placed on paid administrative leave in September 2016 while BUSD investigated “concerns [Felarca] may have engaged in inappropriate conduct,” a case document shows. The letter informing Felarca of her administrative leave says the leave “[was] not intended to be disciplinary.”

In October 2016, Felarca filed a lawsuit against BUSD (Yvette Felarca v. Berkeley Unified School District et al.) alleging the district violated her First Amendment rights by placing her on involuntary leave for her participation in a political protest. The case claimed in its introduction that Felarca “has received only positive evaluations over her ten years of teaching with BUSD” and said the defendants were conducting “a political witch-hunt against [Felarca].”

Felarca, a member of the Berkeley Federation of Teachers, returned to the classroom in November, at which time she was presented with a “Notice of Unprofessional Conduct.” Felarca submitted as evidence the November letter and a “Notice of Unprofessional Conduct/Unsatisfactory Performance” from June 2016 as exhibits I and A, respectively, revealed during the case proceedings.

“Exhibit A” states Felarca “repeatedly solicited students to participate in protests against the proposed charter school in the District” and was issued a formal reprimand for her “improper involvement of children in this matter.” In 2011, the notice says, Felarca promised parents and students a trip to a rally at UC-Berkeley before obtaining permission from the principal to take them. The principal ultimately denied Felarca permission, because “it was an opportunity for [Felarca] to indoctrinate students and use them to support [her] own political agenda.” Felarca acted “unprofessionally toward [the principal] when she denied [her] permission.”

Felarca was issued another formal letter of reprimand in June 2012 for an unauthorized after-school trip where she left a student behind and later claimed he “wandered off,” according to the notice, which goes on to document numerous instances of “abuse of leave” over the years, during which time Felarca lied about sick and personal leave to attend political rallies.  TheBlaze

Bowe Bergdahl To Plead Guilty To Desertion, Misbehavior Before The Enemy

Traitor.

Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is set to plead guilty to charges of desertion and misbehavior before the enemy, The Associated Press reported Friday.

Bergdahl is accused of deserting his station in Afghanistan in 2009. He was held captive by armed Taliban militants until his release in 2014.

President Trump has slammed Bergdahl as a “no-good traitor,” saying he “should have been executed.”..

The desertion charge carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison and the misbehavior charge carries a possible life sentence.

A guilty plea carries the possibility of a lighter sentence for Bergdahl, though it is not yet clear how much time he will face.

Sentencing is set to begin Oct. 23, according to the AP. It is not clear whether prosecutors and the defense have reached an agreement on the sentence prosecutors will request.  TheHill

 

France’s Islamic WWIII – Afghanistan Is Safer Than Paris

Refusing to acknowledge and look at the root cause is how a nation loses.

Interior Minister Gerard Collomb made it official. France is “in a state of war”.

It’s not just rhetoric. Bombs turn up in a posh Parisian suburb. Two young women are butchered at a train station. And it’s just another week of an Islamic World War III being fought in France.

From the November attacks in 2015 that killed 130 people and wounded another 400+, to the Bastille Day truck ramming attack last year that killed 86 and wounded 458, the war is real.

French casualties in France are worse than in Afghanistan. The French lost 70 people to Islamic terrorist attacks in Afghanistan. And 239 to Islamic terrorist attacks in France.

The French losses in Afghanistan were suffered in over a decade of deployment in one of the most dangerous Islamic areas in the world. The French losses in France were suffered in less than two years.

There’s something very wrong when Afghanistan is safer than Paris.

10,000 French soldiers were deployed in the streets of their own country in Operation Sentinelle after the Charlie Hebdo – Kosher supermarket attacks in 2015. Thousands of French soldiers are still patrolling, guarding and shooting in French cities which have become more dangerous than Afghanistan.

Operation Sentinelle has deployed twice as many French soldiers to France as to Afghanistan. And French casualties in the Islamic war at home have been far higher than they were in Afghanistan. FrontPageMag

Secret Donors To An Anti-Trump ‘Resistance’ Group Revealed

The hidden left-wing foundations and millionaire donors to a Washington, D.C. based left-wing agitation group were revealed in a Washington Free Beacon report.

The Center for Community Change Action, a Washington, D.C.-based progressive community organizing group that does not reveal its donors, has been involved in direct action against President Donald Trump and Republicans before and after the November elections. The organization’s members sit on the boards of other prominent liberal activist groups.

The Free Beacon has obtained the group’s unredacted 2015 tax forms that shed light on its funders, who provide millions of dollars in assistance. The group appears to rely heavily on a few major liberal foundations, organizations, and unions.  Washington Free Beacon

Some of the Center for Community Change Action donors:

  • $3,000,000 – W.K. Kellogg Foundation
  • $2,350,000 – The Ford Foundation
  • $1,475,000 – Soros group named the Open Society Policy Center
  • $1,750,000 – Hillary Clinton affiliated Every Citizen Counts
  • $515,000 – Marquerite Casey Foundation
  • $505,100 –  Fidelity Charitable Gift
  • $316,000 –  National Immigration Law Center
  • $150,000 – Services Employees International Union  SEIU
  • $150,000 – Center for Community Change
  • $50,000 – Tides Foundation

In yet another connection to anti-American George Soros, the executive director of the Center for Community Change, Deepak Bhargava, sits on the advisory board of Soros’s Open Society Foundation.

Another notable connection to anti-American efforts comes in the form of Charlene Sinclair, the director of reinvestment at the Center for Community Change. Sinclair also sits on the board of a group called The Emergent Fund that has donated tens of thousands to the violent Black Lives Matter movement. BreitBart

Video: Gender Identity – Why All The Confusion?

Video: Gender Identity: Why All the Confusion?

Are male and female one and the same? Or are there real male-female differences rooted in biology? Ashley McGuire, author of “Sex Scandal: The Drive to Abolish Male and Female,” explains.

The ‘Ferguson Effect’ Is Real

The Ferguson effect was spotlighted by Manhattan Institute’s Heather MacDonald in a Wall Street Journal May 2015 op-ed.  MacDonald noted that arrests were sharply down in cities such as Chicago, St. Louis, and Baltimore because an “onslaught of anti-cop rhetoric” across the country caused officers to “scale back on proactive policing.”

At first glance, the number seems like an error — as if an FBI statistician had accidentally transposed some digits in the bureau’s annual report on crime released earlier this week.

Were there really 765 murders in Chicago in 2016? A year after the city tallied 478, and the year before that 411? A reader unfamiliar with Chicago’s recent crime history would likely say the true number has to be 576 or, worst case, 675.

Alas, anyone who has been paying attention to violence in Chicago knows the FBI didn’t make a mistake — the shocking number is accurate. Chicago’s annual murder total jumped 86 percent in the space of two years, evoking memories of the early 1990s crack wars when annual homicide totals regularly approached 1,000…

Although that horrifying statistic stands out, Chicago’s wave of killing wasn’t an aberration, nationally speaking. Six other major U.S. cities experienced a surge in murders in at least one year between 2014 and 2016.

Baltimore, for example, recorded 211 murders in 2014, a relatively peaceful year for the violence-plagued city. The next year, homicides exploded by more than 60 percent to 344.

Chicago and Baltimore have something in common beyond seemingly intractable gang violence. Along with several other cities — St. Louis, Dallas, Charlotte, and Milwaukee — they were the site of significant civil unrest that erupted following the killing of black men by police officers.

Las Vegas Shooting Survivor Says He’s No Longer Agnostic – ‘I’m a Firm Believer in God Now’

Many reports of heroism and brave first responders have flooded the internet.

Las Vegas survivor Taylor Benge tells of heroic acts on Sunday, he also revealed that the experience turned him from being an agnostic to a full-fledged believer.

“I was agnostic going into that concert and I’m a firm believer in God now,” Benge told CNN on Monday morning. “Because there’s no way that all of that happened and that I made it and I was blessed enough to still be here alive talking to you today.”

Taylor has a brave protective sister.

“My sister and I, we started running to the left and every time they shot, we took cover,” Taylor Benge told CNN on Monday morning. “My sister, being as noble as she, she actually threw herself on top of me and was saying, ‘I love you Taylor, I love you.’ And I’ll never forget that.” Faithwire

The Las Vegas Shooting

Update:

Stephen Craig Paddock is the son of Benjamin Hoskins Paddock (A man once on the FBI’s Most Wanted List)

The father of the gunman behind the deadliest shooting in modern U.S. history robbed a string of banks in Arizona, escaped prison in Texas and tried to start a new life as the manager of a bingo parlor in Oregon, according to historical newspaper articles.

Eric, the brother of Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock, who killed at least 50 people from his hotel room at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino late Sunday, told the Orlando Sentinel that their father was Benjamin Hoskins Paddock.

The elder Paddock, born in Wisconsin in 1926, had a host of other fake names and nicknames, including “Big Daddy” and “Old Baldy,” and was on the FBI’s Top Ten Most Wanted list from 1969 to 1977.

Paddock was indicted in 1960 on three counts of robbing Phoenix branches of Valley National Bank, the Arizona Republic reported on Oct. 6 that year. He was accused of stealing close to $25,000 and was caught in the summer of 1960 by FBI agents after returning to Arizona from Las Vegas.

The 6-foot-4, 245-pound Paddock was convicted and slapped with a 20-year prison sentence, but the lengthy jail term was cut short when he busted out of a federal prison in Texas in 1969, the Eugene Register-Guard reported.

An escaped federal prisoner poster issued by the FBI at the time said Paddock was “diagnosed as psychopathic” and “reportedly has suicidal tendencies and should be considered armed and dangerous.” FoxNews

This is the worst mass shooting in U.S. history.  At least 58 people are dead and an estimated 515 others have been injured from the Sunday night massacre in Las Vegas.  One police officer was killed and another remains in critical condition.

Stephen Craig Paddock, 64, has been identified as the gunman.   He was found dead by police officers in a hotel room on the 32nd floor;  he reportedly took his own life.

Why?   We will hear and find out more about Paddock over the next few days and weeks.

“There is no reason we can imagine why Stephen would do something like this,” his brother said. “All we can do is send our condolences to the people who died. Just no reason, no warning.”

The younger Paddock repeatedly described his brother as “just a guy” with no serious health or money problems.

“As far as we knew, he had enough money to live the rest of his life in comfort,” he said.

100-Year-Old Woman Helping People With the Gift ‘The Lord Gave Me’

Wonderful.

Most mornings 100-year-old Eva wakes up between 3-4 and heads for her sewing machine. She’s a woman on a mission with no time to waste.

At the end of last year, Eva’s pastor asked her to make about 180 items for girls that could be packed in Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes. Eva didn’t have to think long before she knew what she’d do.

Eva is making dresses that will soon be packed in shoeboxes and distributed to little girls across the world who need to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

“At first it took me a day and a half to make a dress. Now, I can get three done in a day,” said Eva, a resident of the North Carolina mountains.

Eva works hard but said she doesn’t mind—she’s grateful.

“I love it. The Lord gave me hands with no arthritis. I’m doing what the Lord has asked me to do.” SamaritanPurse

Who Are We?: The Challenges to America’s National Identity By Samuel P. Huntington Book Review

Who Are We?: The Challenges to America’s National Identity is an interesting read on America’s identity and the changes that have occurred over time.  It looks at the importance Americans attribute to their national identity and what Americans think they have in common and what distinguishes them from other peoples.

The book deals with the topic of national identity and immigration.   Huntington gives a history of the American identity and how it has varied over time.  He punctures some national myths.  One myth is we are “a nation of immigrants”.  America is a nation that was founded by settlers and was populated by the decedents of those settlers.  Immigrants came later and assimilated into America.  Americans own America and may admit or refuse any outsider on whatever grounds.  He also looks at the threats it faces.

Huntington looks at the recent history of immigration.  From the 60’s immigration is different than the previous waves.  It is continuously high levels.  Previous immigration was low and at times high peaks followed by low waves.  High peaks of immigration retards assimilation and fosters ethnic ghettoes.  The new huge wave of immigration is must less diverse.   Hunting lays out a vast wealth of social science, census, and survey data to support his thesis.

There is a lot more than just immigration.  It is an analysis of the threats that undermine America’s common culture and identity looking at cultural wars of the last 40 years.  One such is the American elites who until the late 2oth century promoted national unity, then in the 1960s and 1970s they “began to promote measures consciously designed to weaken America’s cultural and creedal identity and to strengthen racial, ethnic, cultural, and other subnational identities. These efforts by a nation’s leaders to deconstruct the nation they governed were, quite possibly, without precedent in human history.”

What the deconstructionist promote Huntington examines in detail the changes and the significance to America’s future.

The deconstructionists promoted programs to enhance the status and influence of subnational, racial, ethnic and cultural groups. They encouraged immigrants to maintain their birth country cultures, granted them legal privileges denied to native-born Americans, and denounced the idea of Americanization as un-American. They pushed the re-writing of history syllabi and textbooks so as to refer to the “peoples” of the United States in place of the single people of the Constitution.

They urged supplementing or substituting for national history the history of subnational groups. They downgraded the centrality of English in American life and pushed bilingual education and linguistic diversity. They advocated legal recognition of group rights and racial preferences over the individual rights central to the American Creed. They justified their actions by theories of multiculturalism and the idea that diversity rather than unity or community should be America’s overriding value. The combined effect of these efforts was to promote the deconstruction of the American identity that had been gradually created over three centuries and the ascendance of subnational identities.

The replacement of individual rights with group rights, undermining of equal justice, the erosion of American citizenship, multiculturalism….

Huntington analysis of American culture and identity in historical context is an interesting read about how we got to where we are today and where we are going.
