Swedish Woman Gang-Raped, Live-Streamed On Facebook

Sweden has deliberately chosen a path of self-destruction.

Sick.

Three men have been arrested in Sweden on suspicion of gang-raping a woman, after one allegedly live-streamed the crime on a closed Facebook page.

According to Sweden’s Aftonbladet tabloid, the alleged crime took place in an apartment in the city of Uppsala early on Sunday morning. The victim was reportedly close to unconscious.

Josefine Lundgren, 21, alerted the police at 8.24am on Sunday morning as soon as she realised what was happening on the closed group, of which she is one of 60,000 members.

“He tore off her clothes and lay down on top of her,” Lundgren told Expressen.

“You have been raped,” one of the men said to the woman at the end of the broadcast before laughing, according to the paper. “Three against one, ha ha ha,” one of the members of the closed group then commented under the feed. thelocal.se

Aftonbladet daily spoke to some of the members of the closed Facebook group in which the “aggravated rape” was reportedly broadcast live. Witnesses said the girl being gang-raped was close to unconscious at the time.RT

On Flashback, Sweden’s largest internet forum, users who said they witnessed the alleged rape as it was broadcast identified the attackers as a group of men of Middle Eastern appearance. BreitBart

Iran Repopulating Syria With Shia Muslims

This is extremely wrong!

New communities of Shia Muslims are being settled in areas where Sunnis have fled or been forced out as Tehran seeks an arc of control stretching from its borders to Israel.  There would be Iran controlled areas just above Israel.

In the valleys between Damascus and Lebanon, where whole communities had abandoned their lives to war, a change is taking place. For the first time since the conflict broke out, people are starting to return.

But the people settling in are not the same as those who fled during the past six years.

The new arrivals have a different allegiance and faith to the predominantly Sunni Muslim families who once lived there. They are, according to those who have sent them, the vanguard of a move to repopulate the area with Shia Muslims not just from elsewhere in Syria, but also from Lebanon and Iraq.

The population swaps are central to a plan to make demographic changes to parts of Syria, realigning the country into zones of influence that backers of Bashar al-Assad, led by Iran, can directly control and use to advance broader interests. Iranis stepping up its efforts as the heat of the conflict starts to dissipate and is pursuing a very different vision to Russia, Assad’s other main backer. TheGuradian

Sunnis make up 85% of the Muslim world, while Shi’ites are less than 15%. Nevertheless, Iran enjoys an advantage because it is the supreme Shi’ite religious and political authority, whereas, in the Sunni world, every imam can issue his own fatwas – though there is no general obligation to follow them. The lack of religious solidarity – let alone a common policy – severely hampers the ability of Sunni countries to counter the Iranian threat.

While religious extremism Shi’ite and Sunni appear poised to tear apart the Mideast, the lack of religious solidarity – let alone a common policy – severely hampers the ability of Sunni countries to counter the Iranian threat.

Beginning with Khomeini, Tehran has developed a powerful and aggressive army to push its agenda: exporting its Islamic Revolution to Sunni states as a first step before attacking “the great Satan” – the U.S. and its allies. Iran was a major driving force in the disintegration of Iraq, Syria, Yemen and the shambles that is Lebanon. JPost

Over 50 Of The Groups Affiliated With ‘Women’s March’ Were Funded By George Soros

The ‘Women’s March’ was not grassroots.  It was a partisan mix of leftist that fail to stand for something, more temper tantrums over a democratic election.

Therapy Session

According to the Post:  Marchers — mostly women and mostly white — said they came to take the most public possible stand against Trump, a candidate and now president whom they said routinely insults women and the issues they care about. But the gathering also provided therapy for many, the balm of immersing themselves in a like-minded sea of citizens who had shared their anxiety and disappointment after Democrat Hillary Clinton’s historic bid for the presidency ended in defeat. BreitBart

CNN analyst Bakari Sellers lets slip truth about the ‘Women’s March, “It’s not about women, it’s about liberalism.”

Roy Speckhardt, executive director of the American Humanist Association, a march “partner,” told me his organization was “nonpartisan” but has “many concerns about the incoming Trump administration that include what we see as a misogynist approach to women.” Nick Fish, national program director of the American Atheists, another march partner, told me, “This is not a ‘partisan’ event.” Dennis Wiley, pastor of Covenant Baptist United Church of Christ, another march “partner,” returned my call and said, “This is not a partisan march.” nytlive.nytimes

Really?

UnitedWomen.org, another partner, features videos with the hashtags #ImWithHer, #DemsInPhily and #ThanksObama. Following the money, I poured through documents of billionaire George Soros and his Open Society philanthropy, because I wondered: What is the link between one of Hillary Clinton’s largest donors and the “Women’s March”?  nytlive.nytimes

Women who are pro-life, not welcome

An event that claims to speak for all women excludes pro-life women.

“It appears that the [Women’s March on Washington] only wants to include a ‘diverse’ array of women who think exactly like them,” Destiny Herndon-De La Rosa of New Wave Feminists said.

White feminists feel treated as oppressors.

Ms. Willis, a 50 ­year old wedding minister from South Carolina, had looked forward to taking her daughters to the march. Then she read a post on the Facebook page for the march that made her feel unwelcome because she is white.

The post, written by a black activist from Brooklyn who is a march volunteer, advised “white allies” to listen more and talk less. It also chided those who, it said, were only now waking up to racism because of the election. “You don’t just get to join because now you’re scared, too,” read the post. “I was born scared.”

Stung by the tone, Ms. Willis canceled her trip.  NYTimes

George Soros

Soros has funded or has close relationships with, at least 56 of the march’s “partners,” including “key partners” Planned Parenthood, which opposes Trump’s anti-abortion policy, and the National Resource Defense Council, which opposes Trump’s environmental policies.

The other Soros ties with “Women’s March” organizations include the partisan MoveOn.org (which was fiercely pro-Clinton), the National Action Network (which has a former executive director lauded by Obama senior advisor Valerie Jarrett as “a leader of tomorrow” as a march co-chair and another official as “the head of logistics”).

Other Soros grantees who are “partners” in the march are the American Civil Liberties Union, Center for Constitutional Rights, Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch. March organizers and the organizations identified here haven’t yet returned queries for comment.

Another Soros grantee and march “partner” is the Arab-American Association of New York, whose executive director, Linda Sarsour, is a march co-chair.

Angela Davis is a speaker.

Angela Davis, a star speaker and honorary co-chair of the event. An activist and scholar, Davis is also a Communist Party veteran with a long record of support for political violence in the United States and the worst of human rights abusers abroad.

The Washington Post article on the Women’s March speakers identified Davis as a “civil rights era icon.” In fact, while Davis participated in civil rights activism as a teenager in her native Birmingham, Alabama, she spent the peak years of the movement studying philosophy in Europe; she did not become an icon until 1970, as a famous fugitive accused of aiding a courthouse escape attempt in which a judge was shot dead and a juror and a prosecutor were wounded. Davis, by then a University of California professor, a Black Panther militant, and a hardcore Marxist-Leninist, was eventually acquitted by a handpicked politically sympathetic jury despite evidence that the weapons used in the incident were registered in her name. In subsequent years, she was an active supporter of the radical Jonestown commune in Guyana, which ended in murder and mass suicide.

But whatever one thinks of Davis’s domestic militancy, her true claim to infamy is her career as an apologist for repressive communist regimes. During her 18 months in jail, Davis became a heroine across the Soviet bloc; for communist states frequently criticized for imprisoning dissidents, a perceived “political prisoner” in the United States was a godsend. After her release, Davis was feted in East Germany (a 1972 photo shows her shaking hands with then-General Secretary Erich Honecker, whose orders to shoot people trying to escape the socialist paradise by crossing the border into West Germany resulted in over 1,000 deaths), in Cuba, and in the Soviet Union, where she was awarded the Lenin Peace Prize in 1979, just months before the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan.

It takes some cheek to mount a protest against Trump with a speaker who was twice honored by Leonid Brezhnev’s Soviet Union. USAToday

Mixed Message 

Hilary tried to win by doing everything they’ve just done today – by being a woman, a woman who wants to be the candidate for everyone who feels like a victim, who feels maligned by society. She was the candidate for every cause, but master of none.

The voices today? Just an echo of her mixed messages. And that wasn’t, isn’t enough.

The left believes it is better than the rest. But it has prejudices of its own.  DailyMail

Finding Truth Book Review

In Finding Truth Pearcey presents five principles Christian can use to critique and evaluate secular worldviews and recognizing their inadequacies compared with Christianity. She derives these five principles from Romans 1 which she calls, “Paul’s apologetics training manual.”

First, she shows how these five principles relate to Romans 1.   Each chapter explores a principle with concrete examples that is easy to understand.  In each chapter, she makes the case for Christianity.  There are some interesting quotes from scholars.  What is gained are principles that are broadly applicable rather than specific arguments against all the different worldviews.  “The goal,” she writes, “is to master the skills that will enable you to cut to the heart of any set of ideas.”

An excellent book that will help you discern the flaws of different worldviews heard today.

Finding Truth: 5 Principles for Unmasking Atheism, Secularism, and Other God Substitutes by Nancy Pearcey is available at Amazon.

Canadians Traveling To Women’s March Denied U.S. Entry After Sharing Plans

Our country is not obligated to allow citizens of other countries in to attend a protest.

Would-be protesters heading to the Women’s March on Washington have said they were denied entry to the United States after telling border agents at a land crossing in Quebec their plans to attend the march.

Montrealer Sasha Dyck was part of a group of eight who had arranged online to travel together to Washington. Divided into two cars, the group – six Canadians and two French nationals – arrived at the border crossing that connects St Bernard de Lacolle in Quebec with Champlain, New York, on Thursday.

The group was upfront about their plans with border agents, Dyck said. “We said we were going to the women’s march on Saturday and they said, ‘Well, you’re going to have to pull over’.”

What followed was a two-hour ordeal. Their cars were searched and their mobile phones examined. Each member of the group was fingerprinted and had their photo taken.

Border agents first told the two French citizens that they had been denied entry to the US and informed them that any future visit to the US would now require a visa.

“Then for the rest of us, they said, ‘You’re headed home today’,” Dyck said. The group was also warned that if they tried to cross the border again during the weekend, they would be arrested. “And that was it, they didn’t give a lot of justification.”

Dyck described it as a sharp contrast to 2009, when the research nurse made the same journey to attend Barack Obama’s inauguration. “I couldn’t even get in for this one, whereas at the other one, the guy at the border literally gave me a high five when I came in and everybody was just like, ‘welcome’. The whole city was partying; nobody was there to protest Obama the first time.”

UK national Joe Kroese said he, a Canadian and two Americans were held at the same border crossing for three hours on Thursday.

The group had travelled from Montreal, where 23-year-old Kroese is studying, and had explained to border agents that they were considering attending the Women’s March but had yet to finalise their plans.

After being questioned, fingerprinted and photographed, Kroese and his Canadian companion were refused entry because they were planning to attend what the border agent called a “potentially violent rally”, he said. The pair was advised not to travel to the United States for a few months, and Kroese was told he would now need a visa to enter the US. TheGuardian

Donald Trump To Be Sworn In Using Two Bibles

Nice.

President-elect Donald Trump will be sworn into office using two Bibles — one belonging to Abraham Lincoln, and the other a gift from his mom, the inaugural committee announced Tuesday.

“In his first inaugural address, President Lincoln appealed to the ‘better angels of our nature,’” committee chair Tom Barrack said in a statement.

“As he takes the same oath of office 156 years later, President-elect Trump is humbled to place his hand on Bibles that hold special meaning both to his family and to our country,” Barrack added….

Trump’s family Bible was given to him on June 12, 1955, by his mother when he graduated from Sunday Church Primary School at First Presbyterian Church in Queens. NYPost

Girl Scouts: Stand With Your Values! Boycott Trump’s Inauguration

The announcement that Girl Scouts would march at Donald Trump’s inauguration prompted calls for a boycott, a twitter storm, and a petition on MoveOn.

Leftist and MoveOn (Soros funded organization) is now harassing children and the groups they are involved with.

Leftist need to learn to think logically and stop with the label throwing.

Girl Scouts statement:

Inauguration Day: Reflecting on Girl Scouts’ History of Civic Action

On Friday, January 20, approximately 75 Girl Scouts from the Nation’s Capital council will voluntarily march in the 2017 Presidential Inaugural Parade, as the council has done over the past 100 years. As part of this unique experience, these girls will gain insight into the time-honored democratic tradition of a peaceful transition of power. Then, the very next day, Saturday, January 21, women and girls, including Girl Scouts, from across the country will descend on Washington to participate in the Women’s March and similar events in communities across the country.

At Girl Scouts, our Movement is made up of individuals who hold political beliefs and convictions as varied as our nation itself. And because every girl has a home at Girl Scouts, every girl in our Movement is allowed her own ideas, opinions, beliefs, and political ideology. Our fundamental value is empowering girls to be leaders in their own lives. By helping them build the courage, confidence, and character to lift their voices, champion their views, and be advocates for the issues and ideas important to them, Girl Scouts supports girls as they become catalysts for change who strengthen their communities.

Of course, we are a nonpartisan nonprofit organization that by law cannot take positions on political candidates or parties—and we take this very seriously.  Girl Scouts

Mexican Border State Governor Destroys 500 Fast And Furious Guns

Barack Obama and Eric Holder’s legacy.

Authorities in this border state destroyed more than 5,000 firearms during a special event with 500 of those from the infamous Fast and Furious gun-walking operation.

During a special event, Nuevo Leon governor Jaime “El Bronco” Rodriguez Calderon oversaw and participated in the destruction of the weapons in the downtown area of Monterrey. High ranking military and state law enforcement personnel accompanied Rodriguez as he spoke about cartel violence and the destruction that those weapons had brought.

According to Nuevo León officials, the weapons had been seized from criminal organizations and from crime scenes. Rodriguez Calderon stated that the weapons had been smuggled into Mexico by criminal organizations from other countries.

More than 500 of the seized weapons were traced back to the failed Fast and Furious Operation where the U.S. Department of Justice allowed Mexican cartels to illegally purchase weapons in the U.S. in order to move them into Mexico. The weapons were supposed to be traced to high ranking cartel figures, however the U.S. Department of Justice lost track of thousands and bolstered the arsenals of criminal enterprises. Breitbart

 

Silly French Authorities

Paris rejected Israeli software which could have stopped attack

A groundbreaking Israeli security system could have helped French authorities prevent the Paris massacre last November – but authorities balked at the deal under pressure from the anti-Israel boycott movement.

Speaking to Fox News, an Israeli counter-terrorism source with intimate knowledge of both the software involved and the deal itself said that after the Charlie Hebdo and Hyper Cacher attack the previous January an Israeli company offered to provide French authorities with special terrorist-tracking software, which could well have enabled them to flag the ISIS terrorist network operating under their noses.

But although the French were initially very keen on the idea, they ultimately rejected it, the source said.

“French authorities liked it, but the official came back and said there was a higher-level instruction not to buy Israeli technology,” he told Fox News. “The discussion just stopped.”

The technology enables intelligence agencies to “connect the dots”, by aggregating and analyzing fragmented intelligence from multiple sources to provide a clear, comprehensive assessment. It has already been shared with the US and other Israeli allies, and helps to pinpoint terror suspects and other persons of interest to investigators.

The source claimed it could well have helped stop the Paris attacks, and potentially the more recent Brussels attacks as well, which were carried out by the same ISIS terror network. INN

Research Findings Dating Back To Kings David And Solomon In Timna Valley

The ancient copper mines in Timna, in Israel’s Arava Valley in the Sinai Peninsula, are believed by many to be the site of King Solomon’s mines and believed to have been operated by the early Edomites.

Citing the biblical story about King David traveling with his soldiers to the land of Edom, where a major battle took place with the Edomites by the Dead Sea, Ben-Yosef said his team may have found evidence of the bloody conflict.

According to the Bible, Edom stretched from the Sinai Peninsula to the southern border of Canaan and Kingdom of Judah and as far west as Eilat, where it maintained its seaport. As David expanded his reign, Samuel 8:13 states that his army vanquished 18,000 Edomites in the Valley of Salt.

Following the victory, David turned Edom into an Israelite province ruled by handpicked governors.

“You cannot overstate the importance of copper in the Levant during the 10th century BC,” said Ben-Yosef. “It was the oil of the time and produced agricultural tools and weapons.”  JPost

Archaeologists discovered elements that date back to the biblical era of King David and King Solomon in the 10th century B.C. with a highly organized defense system.

The archeological team, led by Tel Aviv University’s Dr. Erez Ben-Yosef, first found a wall of the 10th-century BCE copper-smelting site near Timna Park in the southern desert where the world’s first copper mine is believed to have been located.

The archaeologists, led by Erez Ben-Yosef of Tel Aviv University, think these features show that this Iron Age settlement had a highly organized defense system and depended on an impressive network of long-distance trade. LiveScience

Unraveling the history of an ancient military fortification.

According to Ben-Yosef, the wall his team found was five meters high and once stretched for hundreds of meters.

In addition to the wall, the archeologists uncovered sling stones, donkey bones and dung on both sides of a gatehouse.

What the donkeys were feed.

Built of sturdy stone to defend against invasions, the fortification had pens for draft animals and other livestock. By studying pollen, seed and fauna in the dung, experts found that the animals were fed with hay and the remains of grapes, which was delivered from the Mediterranean coast hundreds of miles away.  FoxNews

“You have to remember the copper was used to [sustain life], and the nearest water source was 15 kilometers away,” he said.  JPost

Humans were not feed a slave diet.

Despite ancient accounts that the mines were operated by slaves, the researcher said mining experts likely oversaw and trained apprentices to extricate the valuable natural resource.  JPost

Previous research by Ben-Yosef’s team found that the laborers did not have a typical slave’s diet; instead, the metalworkers ate good cuts of meat, pistachios and fish imported from the Mediterranean, suggesting they had a rather high status and were valued for their craft. LiveScience

Full UN Security Council – January 17, 2017

The full UN Security Council meeting on January 17, 2017 would have been different had the Paris Peace conference not fizzled out.

The Paris Peace conference sought to mobilize the world only against Israel.  It failed.  It turned into an endeavor to show support for the two-state solution and urge both parties, Israel and the PLO to negotiate.  That is a demonstration of bias because the PLO is the one that needs urging to negotiate, as they are the ones that have for decades refused negotiations and rejected peace plans.  Another feeble effort to undermine Israel’s legitimacy.

Islamist movement Hamas rejected Monday the outcome of a Paris conference on Israeli-Palestinian peace, labelling the summit “absurd.”

“The Paris conference is a return to the absurd negotiation approach, which lost the rights of the Palestinian people and gave legitimacy to the Zionist entity on Palestinian land,” Fawzy Barhoum, a spokesman for Hamas, said in a statement. France24
