California University Works to Reduce Number of White People on Campus In keeping with the diversity and inclusion movement sweeping campuses across the country, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo recently released a 30-page report outlining plans to “improve diversity” via a series of initiatives. One goal is to increase the number of people of color on campus beyond the increases that have already occurred over the past few years, as “applications from underrepresented minority students doubled between 2008 and 2018.” {snip} The public research institution states it wishes to get those numbers more in line with the state’s percentage of white people, which recent polls hold at 39.7 percent of the population. {snip} For students, the school plans on recruiting applicants more heavily based on race.

Cat-astrophic TV interview? This Polish Political Scientist Didn’t Think So You know those parents who seem completely oblivious to the screaming child they’re carting around in a crowded supermarket? We have just found the cat owner equivalent. A Polish political scientist and historian was appearing on Dutch TV to discuss the forced removal of Polish judge Malgorza Gersdorf by the ruling PiS party when his ginger cat decided to make a rather dramatic appearance. The Polish historian & political scientist Jerzy Targalski remained completely unruffled during our interview when this happened????????????‍♂️ pic.twitter.com/4dLi16Pq1H — Rudy Bouma (@rudybouma) July 7, 2018 The cat, reportedly named Lisio, stole the limelight when he climbed Jerzy Targalski, sat on his shoulders and proceeded to sniff his ear.

Jul 10th 2018, 13:57

Trump Announces Brett Kavanaugh as Supreme Court Nominee President Donald Trump stood in the East Room of the White House Monday night with his eagerly anticipated pick to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy: Judge Brett Kavanaugh of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. Shortly after 9 p.m. Eastern, Trump emerged to announce Judge Kavanaugh, 53, as the winner of the last week’s closely watched horse race. That race began with a shortlist of 25 winnowing down to four, then saw Judges Raymond Kethledge and Amy Barrett fall out of contention in the late running, and ended with a photo finish as Kavanaugh pulled ahead of Judge Thomas Hardiman. “For more than four decades, Justice Kennedy served our country with incredible passion and devotion,” Trump said, thanking the retiring Justice for his service.

Finland and Sweden Sign Defence Pact in Turku

Jul 10th 2018, 04:16

Finland and Sweden Sign Defence Pact in Turku Finland and Sweden have for the first time signed a document outlining the objectives of their defence co-operation. A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed on Monday by Finnish defence minister Jussi Niinistö and his Swedish counterpart Peter Hultqvist in Turku. The document covers collaboration during peace and war time but does not specify a duty to provide mutual assistance or entail the creation of a defence alliance, Finland’s defence ministry said in a press release. On the other hand, the MoU also does not limit the extent of cooperation between the countries. The collaboration between Finland and Sweden in defence matters has developed quickly over the past few years, with improved communications channels and joint military exercises. At the moment, Finland and Sweden are further…

Swedish Dental Expert Fined $50,000 for Exposing Adult Migrants Masquerading as Children

Jul 10th 2018, 02:20

Swedish Dental Expert Fined $50,000 for Exposing Adult Migrants Masquerading as Children See something, say nothing? This appears to be the message in Sweden, where politically correct authorities may punish those who dare complain about the government’s culture-rending and crime-spiking importation of vast numbers of Muslim migrants. The latest example is a dental hygienist fined approximately $50,000 for revealing that some refugees claiming to be “children” are actually adults. According to Swedish news organ Samhällsnytt: Bernt Herlitz is being severely punished for trying to reveal the age of fake children. Now he has to pay 425 thousand kronor [$48,500] within 30 days to his former employer Region Gotland – money he does not have. The language of the judgment is harsh and at times activist against Herlitz. Previously, Samhällsnytt revealed that several of the people whom…

Jul 9th 2018, 22:29

Latvian Social Democratic Workers' Party Release Ad Showing EU as an African Migrant Making Babies with Latvian Woman A political party in Latvia has come under fire after its official Facebook page posted a “Nazi-related ad,” which apparently aims to show the EU as a tribal black man and Latvia as a blond white woman nursing a black baby. The scandal started on Sunday, when the Latvian Social Democratic Workers’ Party (LSDSP) posted the controversial picture ahead of the October parliamentary election. In addition to the semi-naked couple the image shows the rainbow flag of LGBT pride, the national flag of Latvia in the background and a former logo of the national tax agency. A note above it said it showed Latvia if people didn’t vote for the LSDSP. The post quickly sparked outrage on the social media, as people accused the party of blatant racism. Adding to controversy was the origin of the picture, which…

‘A Matter of Life & Death’: 15,000 White South African Farmers Seek Refuge in Russia A delegation of 30 South African farming families has arrived in Russia’s farmbelt Stavropol region, Rossiya 1 TV channel reports. The group says it is facing violent attacks and death threats at home. Up to 15,000 Boers, descendants of Dutch settlers in South Africa, are planning to move to Russia amid rising violence stemming from government plans to expropriate their land, according to the delegation. “It’s a matter of life and death — there are attacks on us. It’s got to the point where the politicians are stirring up a wave of violence,” Adi Slebus told the media. “The climate here [in the Stavropol region] is temperate, and this land is created by God for farming. All this is very attractive.” The new South African government lead by President Cyril Ramaphosa has pledged to return the…

Nonwhites Attack Nantes, France: Schools, Libraries, Town Hall, Clinics and over 500 Vehicles Torched The sale of jerry cans, gasoline and fireworks were banned in Nantes, France, after thousands of nonwhites attacked the city center, burning down over a dozen buildings—including schools and libraries—and torched over 500 vehicles after an accidental police shooting killed a North African resisting arrest earlier this week.

Boris Johnson Quits as U.K. Foreign Secretary Amid Brexit Turmoil

Jul 9th 2018, 18:28

Boris Johnson Quits as U.K. Foreign Secretary Amid Brexit Turmoil Exit comes in wake of David Davis’s resignation as minister in charge of Britain’s negotiations to leave the EU U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May was battling Monday to overcome her biggest crisis since she lost her parliamentary majority in last year’s general election after Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson became the second prominent supporter of Britain’s departure from the European Union to quit her government in less than 24 hours. Mr. Johnson’s resignation, announced by Downing Street in a brief statement, followed that of David Davis, the minister in charge of Britain’s negotiations to leave the EU. Mr. Johnson is a longtime figurehead for the fervently anti-EU wing of the ruling Conservative Party and his departure increases the chance that Mrs. May could face a formal challenge to her…

Whites are the Best in Almost All the Sports and the World’s Strongest Men

Jul 7th 2018, 13:34

Whites are the Best in Almost All the Sports and the World's Strongest Men Ricardo Duchesne, Council of European Canadians, 3 June 2018 Many take it for granted that black men dominated sports and that they are genetically superior in athletic competitions. This perception was developed into a full argument in Jon Entine’s book, Taboo: Why Black Athletes Dominate Sports and Why We Are Afraid to Talk About It (2000). In reality no one has been afraid to talk about this supposed black domination in sports. Some in the media qualified Entine’s arguments, but no one condemned them. What they would condemn is the truth: Whites are actually far better athletes. Entine claimed outright that blacks athletes are genetically “better at sprinting, endurance running and jumping — the sort of skills required for success in most major sports these days.” This was a “scientific…

In response to a question about Monty Python’s Flying Circus, Allen said: “If you’re going to assemble a team now, it’s not going to be six Oxbridge white blokes. It’s going to be a diverse range of people who reflect…

Jul 6th 2018, 18:56

Gang of Poachers Eaten by Lions After They Broke into South African Game Reserve A gang of poachers who broke into a South African game reserve to slaughter a herd of rhinos were attacked and eaten by a pride of hungry lions. A head and a number of bloodied body parts and limbs were found near the scene after at least three illegal hunters were devoured by the predators. Staff at the Sibuya Game Reserve, in Eastern Province, South Africa, called in a helicopter to search the area for more poachers. A vet then had to tranquilise the six lions so police could go inside and recover the remains of the mauled poachers. Owner Nick Fox, 60, said: “We found enough body parts and three pairs of empty shoes which suggests to us that the lions ate at least three of them but it is thick bush and there could be more. They came heavily armed with hunting rifles and axes which we have…

Teen Attacked for Wearing ‘Make America Great Again’ Hat

Jul 6th 2018, 16:35

Teen Attacked for Wearing 'Make America Great Again' Hat Police are investigating after a teen says he was verbally attacked and assaulted at a Whataburger for wearing a Make America Great Again hat. In the video, you can see a man throw a drink in 16-year-old Hunter Richard’s face before leaving the restaurant with his hat. Hunter said some of his hair was pulled during the assault. “I support my President and if you don’t let’s have a conversation about it instead of ripping my hat off. I just think a conversation about politics is more productive for the entire whole rather than taking my hat and yelling subjective words to me,” he said. Hunter was with his friends at the Whataburger off Nacogdoches and Thousand Oaks Tuesday night when it happened. They say the attack was unprovoked. EPIC!

The Liberal Stampede to ‘Abolish ICE’

Jul 6th 2018, 02:26

The Liberal Stampede to ‘Abolish ICE’ Pat Buchanan, American Renaissance, 3 July 2018 “What is it in the DNA of the left that it is always ready to enlist in any new war on cops?” “No Borders! No Nations! No Deportations!” “Abolish ICE!” Before last week, these were the mindless slogans of an infantile left, seen on signs at rallies to abolish ICE, the agency that arrests and deports criminal aliens who have no right to be in our country. By last week, however, “Abolish ICE!” was no longer the exclusive slogan of the unhinged left. National Democrats were signing on. Before his defeat in New York’s 14th Congressional District, Joe Crowley, fourth-ranked Democrat in the House, called ICE a “fascist” organization. After Crowley’s rout by a 28-year-old socialist who called for killing the agency, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., declared…

Hungary Wants Austria to Use EU Presidency to 'Completely Reverse' Brussels' Migration Policy The Hungarian government will do everything it can to support Austria in overturning the EU’s disastrous immigration policy, according to Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó. “Hungary expects the Austrian EU Presidency to practice a totally new politics that is the complete reverse of Brussels’ existing migration policy,” he said. “The Hungarian Government will be providing all possible support towards this.” Austrian Chancellor, Sebastian Kurz, said in a speech to the European Parliament yesterday that he “will be working to create a safe Europe”, adding that he “views the reduction of illegal migration as one of [his] most important tasks.” Szijjártó stressed that while he welcomed the positive noises coming from EU leaders, there was still a battle to be had with the “forces that are organising…

Swedish PM Calls Urgent Meeting with Police After 7 Killings in 2 Weeks Sweden’s PM calls an urgent meeting with police in the wake of a string of gangland killings in recent weeks.

Stefan Löfven said: “We have allocated more resources to the police than the authority already demanded, but more resources, other equipment, whatever we should do. “For this reason, I have today asked Morgan Johansson to call the police forces, to hear what more we can do from the government to get the police the right resources. This must be broken.” “I think it’s pitiless, cold blooded killers we’re dealing with now.” More evidence of violence on the increase across Europe – very…

Man Who Called for the Genocide of White South Africans Goes Unpunished

Jul 4th 2018, 20:59

Man Who Called for the Genocide of White South Africans Goes Unpunished Velaphi Khumalo called for white South Africans to be subjected to what ‘Hitler did to the Jews’. He has been told to issue a public apology. The SA Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) argued that a public apology from Velaphi Khumalo will suffice as punishment for his racial utterances. Khumalo appeared before the Equality Court for a Facebook comment in which he called for the massacre of white South Africans. The SAHRC settled with Khumalo ordering the accused to apologise publicly, as that would deter other South Africans from making racial utterances. Khumalo was also ordered to pay R30 000 to charity. Blacks must do to whites what “Hitler did to the Jews” – Khumalo In an earlier interview with Khumalo’s legal counsel, Stuart Wilson pleaded with the court, saying: “There is no doubt that Mr…

Jul 2nd 2018, 20:19

Salafist Scare in Sweden as Report Points to Avalanche Growth of Radical Islam The number of Islamist extremists in Sweden has risen tenfold, the Swedish Defense College wrote in a new report on the Islamist threat commissioned by the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency (MSB). The report was called “one of a kind” as it mapped out the jihadist environment in Sweden and its methods of influence. According to the report, named “Between Salafism and Salafic Jihadism,” the number of Islamist extremists has grown tenfold over the past decade.

In the report, Salafism is described as a literal interpretation of Sunni Islam and an anti-democratic ideology with…

4 Injured in Shooting and Stabbing in Sweden’s Helsingborg At least four people have been hospitalized with gunshot and stabbing wounds in the Swedish town of Helsingborg following an alleged ‘attempted murder’ which police are, for now, hesitant to definitively link to organized crime.

Armed Clashes in Iran as Giuliani Calls for Regime Change: ‘End Is Near’ Protests in the southern Iran city of Khorramshahr turned into an armed confrontation with security forces early Sunday, resulting in injuries among protesters and police, with conflicting reports that one or more demonstrators may have died.

Though the AP confirms that gunfire erupted in Khorrmashahr, it reports multiple injuries and no fatalities as “online videos appear to show Iranian security forces shooting at protesters.” However Saudi-owned Al Arabiya reported four deaths…

Switzerland to Have Mandatory Female CEOs and Managers

Jul 1st 2018, 18:13

Switzerland to Have Mandatory Female CEOs and Managers According to The Local Switzerland: The introduction of quotas on the number of women serving in management and on the boards of large companies in Switzerland has come a step closer after the National Council voted – by a wafer-thin majority – to back the move. The larger of the two chambers of the federal parliament voted by 95 to 94, with three abstentions, in favour of quotas. Opposition came from the conservative People’s Party and Liberal-Radicals. During a debate on the revision of company law on Thursday, the chamber agreed that in firms listed on the Swiss stock exchange and with more than 250 employees women must make up at least 30 percent of board members and at least 20 percent of the management, the Swiss news agency SDA reported. However, there is no plan to impose sanctions…
