Man Jailed for Anti-Islam Facebook Posts, Germany Raids Homes of 36 People Accused of Hateful Social Media Posts

1984 is seemingly already in full-effect in the EU.

An anti-racism demonstration in London, 2016.

After countless terror attacks in the name of Islam on European soil, it seems authorities in the EU are more angry over citizen’s freedom of speech and expression…

On Tuesday, Sussex police arrested 50 year-old Nigel Pelham; charged with eight counts of “publishing… written material intending to sir up religious hatred against Muslims”, it’s laughable to consider what he’s being punished for – it’s surreal! The “offensive” posts spanned between February 24 and November 16, 2015.

On that same day, German police raided the homes of 36 people accused of hateful postings over social media. Yes, the biggest problem facing the EU is hate but not the kind they’re punishing. Thus, Mr. Pelham and the 36 who had their homes raided had their fundamental human rights violated…

At least, in the U.S. they did…

Republican Majority Whip, Steve Scalise, Shot At GOP Baseball Practice – Is The Exclusively Negative MSM To Blame?

In the early morning hours of June 14 in Alexandria, Virginia, a gunman opened fire at a GOP team practice for an upcoming charity baseball game between Democrats and Republicans. Rep. Steve Scalise, Republican majority whip, was shot at – and hit – in the hip.

However, Scalise is now in stable condition. The suspected gunman is dead after Scalise’s security detail fired back at him. Several eyewitnesses report 50+ shots were fired and only five people hit by the gunman. Senator Rand Paul gave credit to Capitol Police officers on the scene for preventing the shooting from turning into a “massacre”. Plainly, it could’ve been a lot worse. Michigan Rep. Mike Bishop even confirmed the shooter had “several rounds and magazines that he kept unloading and reloading“.

Thus, even with the heroic actions of the Capitol Hill officers and the thankful lack of fatalities, left-wingers are still celebrating.

No Surprise Here – “Reality Winner” Has Not Become The Next Edward Snowden

Last week, 25-year-old Reality Winner (yes, somehow that is her real name) was arrested for allegedly leaking classified information on “Russian Hacking” to The Intercept:

Winner is a contractor with Pluribus International Corporation assigned to a U.S. government agency facility in Georgia. She has been employed at the facility since on or about February 13, and has held a Top Secret clearance during that time. On or about May 9, Winner printed and improperly removed classified intelligence reporting, which contained classified national defense information from an intelligence community agency, and unlawfully retained it. Approximately a few days later, Winner unlawfully transmitted by mail the intelligence reporting to an online news outlet.

In spite of her overt and obvious political leanings (against President Trump and the right, and towards Bernie Sanders and the left), characterizing the mainstream media’s reporting on the leaker’s partisan beliefs would actually be putting it nicely:

Gun Control Groups Are Losing The Battle Against Suppressors

Back in March, the NRA detailed how WaPo‘s very own “fact check” had to rebut the claims from Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) that a firearm “silencer” makes a weapon “quiet”:

In the meantime, although the popular name of this accessory is a silencer, foes of the law such as Gillibrand should not use misleading terms such as “quiet” to describe the sound made by a high-powered weapon with a suppressor attached. We wavered between Two and Three Pinocchios, but finally tipped to Three. There is little that’s quiet about a firearm with a silencer, unless one also thinks a jackhammer is quiet.

However, as PA Gun Blog pointed out, gun control groups (in conjunction with the MSM) went on a Memorial Day weekend push to demonize suppressors in the eyes of voters.  As the NRA also pointed out, WaPo’s editorial board went against its own “fact check”, and in the absence of facts, chose to editorialize against firearm suppressors instead:

Subpoenas Issued: Obama’s NSA Didn’t Just Spy on Trump – It Spied On You, Too!

Back in March, President Trump ignited a firestorm by accusing the Obama administration of having tapped his phones at Trump Tower. Mainstream media outlets were quick to call Trump’s accusation “baseless” and backed by “no evidence”. Top leaders of both the Democratic and Republican parties even went so far as to reject Trump’s wiretapping claim completely.

However, recent reporting by Circa detail the reality behind the gross abuses perpetuated by Obama’s NSA.

Declassified memos obtained by Circa not only show that the FBI illegally shared spy data on Americans with private parties; but also that the NSA secretly conducted illegal searches on Americans for years.

President Trump’s First Foreign Trip: No Matter The Fake News Spin – Still A Huge Success

President Trump – after a successful and historic first foreign trip – has returned to the political swamp of Washington, D.C. With talks of a major shake-up of top level advisers and attempts to tamp the leaks and furor coming from the White House to finally stabilize his administration, President Trump hit a home run concerning the first foreign trip of his Presidency still in its infancy.

Traveling through the Middle East and Europe, the President met with many world leaders and stood firm representing average, everyday Americans overseas.

After Manchester Slaughter, Outrage Is Deflected Toward “Racist” Tweets

On Tuesday, furor erupted over British media personality Katie Hopkins‘ tweets regarding the Manchester terrorist attack that slaughtered scores of children attending an Ariana Grande concert. After posting the tweet below, Hopkins was reported to British police by another user.

Hopkins also used the term ‘final solution’ in one of her tweets but quickly deleted it and replaced it with ‘true solution’. Was it in bad taste for Hopkins to use ‘final solution’? Absolutely. Jailed or fined for it, though? Absolutely not. It’s a bizarro world when people come under fire for wanting to choose security over the slaughter of innocent children.

The Drug War Has Incentivized Police To Treat Citizens Like Terrorists

A video of a Florida Sheriff making a promo video to scare has been making the rounds recently.  Casey Research recently covered the affair, noting the following quote from Sheriff Grinnell:

“Enjoy looking over your shoulder, constantly wondering if today’s the day we come for you. Enjoy trying to sleep tonight, wondering if tonight’s the night our SWAT team blows your front door off the hinges. We are coming for you.”

The video (reproduced below, with commentary from Casey Research) is as surreal as the above picture implies…

UPDATE: On Seth Rich, Where There’s Smoke – There’s Fire

Last week, I reported stunning revelations in the Seth Rich investigation. Rich family P.I. confirms: Seth Rich had contact with WikiLeaks prior to his murder.

The theories behind Seth Rich’s death have been plentiful and amplified – due in part to whistle-blowing organization, WikiLeaks. Just a month after Rich’s murder, WikiLeaks announced a $20K reward for any information on the murderer. More recently, WikiLeaks retweeted the Fox and Friends story that claimed evidence Rich had correspondence with WikiLeaks.

This week, Newt Gingrich, Hannity, and Kim Dotcom all came forward to speak about Seth Rich. After making some explosive claims, Hannity offered Dotcom a guest spot on his show for a chance to tell-all. On May 21st, Julian Assange tweeted:

CNN’s Kate Bolduan Screams At Former Navy Seal After He Dares To Question ‘Anonymous Sources’

Earlier this week, CNN had former Navy Seal, Carl Higbie on-air to discuss the bogus claim that President Trump shared classified info with Russian Ambassadors.

Of course, it got ugly – and quick.

Higbie starts off by saying he’s “sat very quietly listening to all this BS” and launches into a well-deserved tirade against Bolduan and her panelists. “Have you listened to anything McMaster said today?” Higbie asks, referencing multiple reports of McMaster refuting Trump sharing classified intel.

Higbie goes on to point out that “two former officials” confirmed the main points of CNN’s unverified story. “Tell you what, come out; name those people – then we’ll have something to talk about.”
