President Obama: #GreatIdeaPierre
Soldiers and military personnel at a Kingston, Ont. base are being asked to clear their barracks to make room for an early wave of Syrian refugees arriving in just over a week, CTV News has learned.
Multiple residences at CFB Kingston are being cleared for Nov. 30 to house the refugees, according to an internal memo obtained by CTV News.
The orders will also affect some officer cadets attending the Royal Military College, many of whom are nearing exams.
And while the memo warns of the fast-approaching deadline, it does not indicate where military personnel will be resettled. However, it does say a place will be found for the personnel.
The notice comes just two days after Minister of Immigration and Refugees John McCallum reaffirmed the government’s plan to resettle 25,000 Syrian refugees by the end of 2015.
“We are determined to bring refugees here quickly, but we are also determined to do it right in terms of security and in terms of health,” he said.
“This is the right thing to do,” he added. “It is the Canadian way.”
Sources also tell CTV News that several bases across the country are gearing up to host the newcomers, with a maximum capacity of about 12,000 Syrian refugees.
The purpose is to agitate, they want to gin up racism because they believe it feeds the chaos toward revolution. The best response is not to play their game, but to call them out.
CHICAGO — A tiny faction of old, white communist agitators led and helped organize Wednesday night’s protest in Chicago in response to the release of a dashcam video showing a white police officer fatally shoot 17-year-old black teenager Laquan McDonald 16 times.
The agitators belong to the Revolutionary Communist Party, a far-left Maoist outfit which advocates violent revolution.
The protest began around 4 p.m. downtown at the corner of Jackson and State Street.
At a prior protest on Tuesday night, members of the Revolutionary Communist Party energetically distributed fliers communicating their plan to co-opt the budding protest movement.
In NYC, protesters marched through various areas of NYC, including Macy’s, you can see them carrying socialist fist flags, ‘Smash Capitalism’ signs as well as carrying the flag of the Communist Party of the USA.
DNC raising less, which bodes well, and of course, being Democrats, putting themselves in debt.
Via Fox News:
The Republican National Committee keeps building its cash advantage over its Democratic rivals, strengthening the party’s position going into the election year – with the latest monthly reports showing the DNC with a major debt, while the RNC has accrued a $20M war chest.
The Republicans announced last week that they had raised $8.7 million in October, which they say broke a record for presidential off-year fundraising record.
“With just under a year until Election Day 2016 we’re seeing great enthusiasm for the GOP,” RNC Chairman Reince Priebus said in a press release.
Figures show the Republicans now have over $20 million cash on hand, with only $1.8 million in debts owed. The RNC has raised a total of $89.3 million to date in the current election cycle.
The figures stand in stark contrast to the DNC, that has only $4.7 million cash in hand, with $6.9 million in debts owed, putting the DNC in the red, according to FEC figures. According to the Center for Responsive Politics, the Democrats have so far raised $53.2 million this election cycle, significantly less than their Republican counterparts.

With as many as 1,000 active cases, Fox News has learned at least 48 ISIS suspects are considered so high risk that the FBI is using its elite tracking squads known as the mobile surveillance teams or MST to track them domestically.
“There is a very significant number of people that are on suspicious watch lists, under surveillance,” Republican Sen. Dan Coats said.
Coats, who sits on the Select Committee on Intelligence, would not comment on specifics, but said the around-the-clock surveillance is a major commitment for the bureau. “The FBI together with law enforcement agencies across the country are engaged in this. It takes enormous amount of manpower to do this on a 24-7 basis. It takes enormous amount of money to do this,” Coats explained.
Stop Mass Incarceration has common leadership and is basically an adjunct of Rev Com (revolutionary communists) and Black Youth Project is funded by George Soros. It isn’t about Laquan McDonald, he’s just the present vehicle. The issue is never the issue, the issue is always the revolution…
CHICAGO (AP) — After days of protests in Chicago since the release of a video showing a black teenager shot 16 times by a white police officer, demonstrators were poised to disrupt Black Friday shopping with a march through the heart of the city’s most famous retail district.
Demonstrators scheduled the march on Friday, the traditional beginning of the holiday shopping season that packs Michigan Avenue’s Magnificent Mile. Activists hope to bring attention to the Oct. 20, 2014, slaying of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald and an investigation into his shooting that some say was mishandled.
“This is going to give an opportunity for all of Chicago to come out, demonstrate their outrage and their anger in a nonviolent way, (and) interrupt the economic engine of Black Friday,” said the Rev. Michael Pfleger, a Roman Catholic priest and prominent local activist.
The graphic dashcam video that shows McDonald being shot repeatedly by Officer Jason Van Dyke was released Tuesday, the same day Van Dyke was charged with first-degree murder. He’s been ordered held without bond.
In recent days, there has been talk that marchers taking part in the Black Friday protest would engage in acts of civil disobedience, such as blocking store entrances to prevent shoppers from getting inside. On Thursday, one of the march’s leaders, the Rev. Jesse Jackson, said no such acts were planned, but they could happen.
“Some people may do that, I don’t know,” Jackson said.
Jessie Davis, of the group Stop Mass Incarceration Network, said there have been calls on social media for people to engage in civil disobedience, and Charlene Carruthers, national director of the activist group Black Youth Project 100, would not rule out such actions.
The dictator has spoken. Syrian refugees more important than what Americans or their duly elected representatives want.
Via Fox News:
The Obama administration warned states over the Syrian refugee crisis Wednesday, telling them in a letter they do not have legal authority to refuse the refugees, and states that do not comply may be subject to enforcement action.
The letter, from the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), told state resettlement officials that they may not deny benefits and services to refugees based on their country of origin or religion.
“Accordingly, states may not categorically deny ORR-funded benefits and services to Syrian refugees,” the letter, dated Wednesday, says. “Any state with such a policy would not be in compliance with the State Plan requirements, applicable statutes, and their own assurances, and could be subject to enforcement action, including suspension and termination.”
The letter went on to say that the 1964 Civil Rights Act prohibits discrimination based on race and national origin in all programs that receive federal financial assistance.
“Thus, it is not permissible to deny federally funded benefits such as Medicaid or TANF to refugees who otherwise meet the eligibility requirements,” the letter says.
Shocking exactly zero people.
A German professor has confirmed what skeptics from Britain to the US have long suspected: that NASA’s Goddard Institute of Space Studies has largely invented “global warming” by tampering with the raw temperature data records.
Professor Dr. Friedrich Karl Ewert is a retired geologist and data computation expert. He has painstakingly examined and tabulated all NASA GISS’s temperature data series, taken from 1153 stations and going back to 1881. His conclusion: that if you look at the raw data, as opposed to NASA’s revisions, you’ll find that since 1940 the planet has been cooling, not warming.
According to Günter Ederer, the German journalist who has reported on Ewert’s findings:
From the publicly available data, Ewert made an unbelievable discovery: Between the years 2010 and 2012 the data measured since 1881 were altered so that they showed a significant warming, especially after 1950. […] A comparison of the data from 2010 with the data of 2012 shows that NASA-GISS had altered its own datasets so that especially after WWII a clear warming appears – although it never existed.
Still no marches or protests for Tyshawn.
BLM unavailable for comment
A 27-year-old man has been arrested in the execution-style shooting of 9-year-old Tyshawn Lee.
Chicago Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi confirmed Corey Morgan, of the 7800 block of South Hoyne Avenue, has been arrested in connection with the shooting. Guglielmi did not provide further details on the arrest, but said police would have a formal announcement later Friday.
Morgan has been a person of interest from the start. Last week, he was arrested on a weapons charge in Oak Lawn, after police found him and another man with loaded .40-caliber semi-automatic handguns.
Police had been running tests on those weapons since the arrest, but it was not immediately clear if the guns have been linked to Tyshawn’s murder.
Morgan and co-defendant Dwight Boone-Doty were given $1 million bail for the gun charges. Morgan was released after posting his $100,000 bond. Morgan has been repeatedly questioned about Tyshawn’s murder.
Tyshawn, who was in fourth grade, was shot multiple times at close range with a .40-caliber weapon, after being lured into an alley at 80th and Damen, near his grandmother’s house, on Nov. 2.
Next stop: Europe as a refugee?
Majdal Shams (AFP) – Shortly before sunset, Nidal Salah stared across the fence towards his new life in Syria with the Islamic State movement — paraglider at the ready.
Firing up the engine-powered glider, the 23-year-old Arab Israeli rose over the Israeli-Syrian demarcation line towards the town of Jamlah, controlled by an IS-affiliated group.
He became the first Israeli to take such a route to enter Syria’s civil war, with his plans apparently unknown to his family and authorities, who minutes later scrambled military helicopters.
His fate had been a mystery, but in an interview with AFP his family confirmed they have received multiple messages from him, including a photo apparently showing him with two other jihadists.
His trip sparked an investigation in Israel, where authorities have since arrested six others suspected of seeking to join IS.
– A daring plan –
For his family, Salah’s fate was sealed nearly a year earlier, in November 2014, the day another man, Jihad Hijala, walked out of prison.
Hijala had been in Syria, allegedly with an Al-Qaeda affiliate, but returned to Israel and was jailed for six months.
After he was released, he returned to his hometown of Jaljulia north of Tel Aviv, where the Salahs also live. Hijala is accused of quickly setting about establishing a jihadist cell that would eventually travel to Syria.
Among those he recruited was Salah, who fell under the spell of the man three years his senior, his family said. The Salahs are Muslim but the family are not particularly devout.
“His personality changed,” said his brother Samih, who shared a bedroom with him until recently.
“He banned listening to music, and would only listen to (recordings of) the Koran.”
Salah’s uncle Rifaat accused the Israeli security agency Shin Bet of failing to monitor Hijala’s activities.
“If Israel wanted to stop him, they could have stopped him,” he said.
Don’t drink any water from the Animas river.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture has put together a webpage offering people instructions on how much water to drink, which includes the advice that people should drink to “quench your thirst throughout the day.”
The tipsheet starts by saying people should drink water instead of sugary sodas or sports drinks. But how much water should people drink?
“Let your thirst be your guide,” the tipsheet says.
“A healthy body can balance water needs throughout the day,” it added. “Drink plenty of water if you are very active, live or work in hot conditions, or are an older adult.”
Water in particular is good for people because it means fewer calories and is usually cheaper than other drinks. The department admitted that sometimes, “water just won’t do,” but said in those cases, try to cut back on other drinks, except for milk and a little fruit juice.
And yes, I forgot it was Friday.
Obama found another way to keep us from fighting terrorism. US law enforcement who interview Syrian refugees are banned from asking questions about the person’s religious affiliations or beliefs. This came down from Obama-on-high in the form of a policy memorandum.
It has become increasingly difficult for the FBI to find out the most key information from refugees out of Political Correctness.
The ACLU is almost always behind these changes and Obama is only too glad to cooperate because he is one of them.
“These gradual but severe restrictions were coupled with a simultaneous reduction in accurate, fact-based training to address the nature of the threat we face, leaving us inadequately prepared for the challenges we face today,” a government source familiar with national security told The Daily Caller.
DHS officers probably can’t ask if they are members of al-Qaida, the Muslim Brotherhood, Boko Haram and so on. Barack Obama is and has been very supportive of the Muslim Brotherhood despite the fact that they are a terrorist group serving as the umbrella organization for most other Muslim terrorist groups. They are the PR people.
The interviewers would not be able to ask about views towards various terrorists, some operating out of mosques in the US. The Ft. Hood shooter wouldn’t have been able to be asked about religion. He sent emails to Amwar Awlaki, an American and former imam, which made it clear that the shooter was a terrorist to all but Obama. That and his shouting Allahu Akbar.
It’s how they uncovered evidence around all terrorist activities – looking at associations. Interviews no longer include any intimidation techniques and now when the FBI interviews, they can’t ask the pertinent questions.
The DHS civil rights leftists began investigating Customs and Border Protection agents because CAIR, the Council on American–Islamic Relations which is tied to the Muslim Brotherhood and specifically Hamas, complained about the questions being asked such as those concerning known affiliations with Islamic organizations.
Dumb: Al Roker Says Cabbie “Racist” After He’s Snubbed In Favor Of White Passenger, “This Happens To Folks Of Color Every Day” – Dumber: Cabbie Is A Man Of Color…
Roker should ask his good friend Barack Obama for some race baiting advice.
Al Roker went ballistic after he believed a cab driver snubbed him in favor of a white passenger.
The famous weatherman said this type of thing “happens to folks of color everyday.”
Unfortunately for Roker when one jumps to conclusions one risks being left with egg on his face.
As it turned out Roker’s “racist” cabbie is a man of color.
Roker automatically assumed he was passed by because of his race but cab driver Mahabur Rahman called it a “misunderstanding.”
“I tell you honestly, I didn’t see him,” Rahman, who is from Bangladesh told the New York Daily News Monday. “Black, white, it doesn’t matter.”
“Maybe he saw me and I didn’t see him. How I refuse him?” he asked rhetorically.
Rahman said he would have definitely picked up Roker if he saw him.
“Anybody would pick him. He looks like a gentleman. That’s our business. If you ride with my car, you’re going to make the money,” he told the News.
Wait, why are we sending in ground troops to fight a contained JV team?
Beirut (AFP) – US soldiers are in Kobane, the town in northern Syria nearly destroyed in fierce fighting with the Islamic State group, to train Kurdish forces to battle the jihadists, Kurdish sources said Thursday.
Mustapha Abdi, an activist in the town on the Turkish border, told AFP the American instructors had arrived “in recent hours”, in what is the first official deployment of US ground troops in Syria.
A source with the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) said the Americans would help plan offensives against two Syrian cities held by IS — Jarablus and the jihadists’ Syrian “capital”, Raqa.
At the same time, they would have help coordinate with the Kurds and their Arab and Syriac Christian allies on the ground air strikes on IS by the US-lead coalition, the YPG source said.
Abdi said that the troops who had arrived were a “first group of instructors” who would train the Kurds.
Via Nation of Islam’s Justice or Else:
The first call to action from the massive gathering on 10.10.15 is the nation-wide boycott of the holiday spending season beginning with Black Friday. During his Justice or Else address, Minister Farrakhan quoting Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “We have to find a way to redistribute the pain”.
We have to now withdraw our economic support, so that those who give us pain can receive some pain in return. “You’re either going to treat us right, or we’re going to withdraw from you our economic support. …We intend to boycott Christmas but not Jesus,” Minister Farrakhan said. “We choose not to spend dollars on Black Friday, Black Saturday, Black Sunday, Black Monday. We are not going to spend our money for the rest of that year with those companies that we have traditionally spent our money on.”
Farrakhan shockingly invokes Black Lives Matter:

My job requires me to follow all the awful things happening in the world; after all, that’s what makes up the news cycle. War and death and poverty and injustice (okay, and a few cat videos) fill my computer screen from the moment I wake until I go to bed. By the fourth day of the work week, it’s easy to cycle between outrage and despair.
Many on all sides succumb to this emotional low road, which is why there’s so much anger about failed politicians, terrible policies, and broken promises. Our grandparents would yell at the newspaper, our parents at the TV, and now we vent on Facebook, Twitter and You Tube, amplifying the misery. In the past few years, we’ve seen mobs shutting down freeways and burning down neighborhoods while students at even the most exclusive universities screech about the raw deal they got in life.
A couple of weeks back, shouty children at Yale, Mizzou, and Dartmouth were furious about the terrorism in Paris. Not so much at the monsters who gunned down diners and music lovers, but at the rest of us for honoring the victims. Why should the murder of 130 take the spotlight off the ill-defined “structural oppression” of Ivy League millennials?
Too often, modern America has replaced virtue with victimhood, and the nation is poorer for it. Granted, the US remains one of the wealthiest nations in the history of mankind, but we’ve trained a generation not to recognize this obvious fact. Even to mention the manifold (and nearly miraculous) blessings of American life is a form of hate speech to the campus progressive.
In a far meaner age, Cicero said that “gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all others.” An attitude of thankfulness is a choice that is free to everyone — even those plagued with an education at an elite university. While it may be easier in the short term to whine, it makes for a downright miserable life — not only for oneself, but also for the dwindling number of people who surround the complainer.
This Thanksgiving, and in the days to follow, choose gratitude. Be thankful for the nation, for your life, for those whom you love and those who love you, flaws and all. Like a muscle, you can strengthen this virtue with regular exercise.
German Police Arrest Two At Islamic Center In Berlin Who Were Plotting ‘Significant Criminal Act Against State Security’
How did those Amish sneak their way into the Islamic Center?
(CNN)A German special forces unit arrested two men in a Berlin raid Thursday who are accused of plotting “a significant criminal act against state security,” according to Berlin authorities.
The two men were arrested in the Britz section of the German capital after a search was conducted on an Islamic cultural center, police said.
The suspects, whose identities have not been released, are 28 and 46, according to police, and the German newspaper Der Tagesspeigel reports that one of them was Tunisian and the other Syrian.
Police said “a suspected dangerous object” found in a vehicle linked to the suspects prompted an evacuation of nearby residences.
Berlin’s attorney general is heading up the ongoing investigation.
ISIS Built Vast Network Of Tunnels Under Iraqi Town Of Sinjar, Found Littered With US-Made Weapons, Copies Of The Koran…
Taking a page from the Vietcong.
Under the Iraqi town of Sinjar, Islamic State militants built a network of tunnels, complete with sleeping quarters, wired with electricity, and fortified with sandbags. There they had boxes of US-made ammunition, medicines, and copies of the Quran stashed on shelves.
The Associated Press obtained extensive video footage of the tunnels, which were uncovered by Kurdish forces that took the city in northwestern Iraq earlier this month after more than a year of Islamic State rule.
“We found between 30 and 40 tunnels inside Sinjar,” said Shamo Eado, a commander from Sinjar from the Iraqi Kurdish fighters known as peshmerga. “It was like a network inside the city.”
“Daesh dug these trenches in order to hide from airstrikes and have free movement underground as well as to store weapons and explosives,” Eado said, using an Arabic acronym for the Islamic State, which is also known as ISIS or ISIL. “This was their military arsenal.”
The video, shot by a freelancer touring the town with Kurdish fighters, showed two tunnels running several hundred yards, each starting and ending from houses, through holes knocked in walls or floors.
The narrow tunnels, carved in the rock apparently with jackhammers or other handheld equipment, are just tall enough for a man to stand in. Rows of sandbags line sections of the walls, electrical wires power fans and lights, and metal braces reinforce the ceilings. One section of the tunnel resembled a bunker. Dusty copies of the Quran sit above piles of blankets and pillows. Prescription drugs — painkillers and antibiotics — lie scattered along the floor.
In another section of the tunnel, the footage shows stocks of ammunition, including American-made cartridges and bomb-making tools.
