*Added historical note that some among the Pilgrims were not actually ‘pilgrims’ searching for religious freedom, and not even necessarily religious, but were coming to the new world for other reasons such as freedom from servitude.

This upcoming Thanksgiving Day is sure to offer you and your family plenty of opportunities to argue over whether America should be welcoming Syrian refugees.
If you have any liberal relatives or friends coming over for your Thursday feast, they’re going to relish the chance to tell everyone that the Pilgrims were refugees too — and hope that statement decimates all opposing view points.
Many left-wing publications and pundits are doing their utmost to promote this line in order to generate support for America taking in thousands of Syrian refugees.
For example, The Huffington Post ran a blurb with the headline “This Thanksgiving, Remember America’s Pilgrims Were Refugees, Too.” There’s one paragraph explaining how they fled religious persecution and found a warm welcome from the local Indians. Then it sneers off into snark over “how well that turned out” and to bashing Republican presidential candidates.
We told you yesterday how Hillary was pushing for her minions to target their family at their Thanksgiving dinner and try to change their minds to vote for her. But here’s the guide that the Hillary team is providing for you to use. Because, of course, being a brain dead minion and not actually having any real reasons to vote for her, you need a cheat sheet. Naturally, the cheat sheet is silly beyond belief. Unfortunately, the cheat sheet doesn’t answer questions about her lying, Benghazi, her emails or the raft of other scandals and stupidity that is Hillary.

First on the list of FAQs is the wig question. “Rush Limbaugh says Hillary Clinton wears a wig. Is that true?”
As Hillary herself has noted on a number of occasions, while the color may not be real, the hair is.
Next comes a question on her record, “What the heck has Hillary even done, anyway?”
The real question is, what hasn’t she done? She was a leader in the Senate and the Obama administration, for starters. As a senator from New York, she helped secure $20 billion in federal aid to rebuild after 9/11 and to care for responders. She helped create the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), which covers more than 8 million kids and cut the children’s uninsured rate in half. She negotiated a 2012 ceasefire between Israel and Hamas as secretary of state.
As Marco Rubio put it, “if this election is a resume competition, then Hillary Clinton is going to be the next president.”
Rev Com is, of course, present. Their base is out of Chicago (why are the country’s famous communists all out of Chicago?).
This idiot appears to be the same one who said ‘F**k France’ and was in every officer’s face.

Do not mistake our President’s weakness for that of our military men.
A new English-language propaganda video released on Tuesday, purportedly from the Islamic State’s Al-Hayat Media Center, claims that for all their military skill and superior technology, Western troops are weaker than jihadis.
America is portrayed as exhausted and demoralized from wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, while ISIS fighters “haunt the mind of your soldiers and sew fear into their hearts.”
The video, which employs flashy graphics and a voice-over that sounds like the ranting of a video game super-villain, boasts about the size of the Islamic State’s khilafah (caliphate), which is already larger than Britain.

Survey Results: A nationwide survey of 2016 likely general election voters conducted by McLaughlin & Associates for SecureAmericaNow.org finds that more than 4 out of 5 voters, 84%, would categorize immigration from the Middle East to the United States as “Dangerous.” The plurality, 49%, said “very dangerous,” with another 35% saying “somewhat dangerous.” Only 12%, said it was “not dangerous at all,” with the remaining 4%, saying they didn’t know. These numbers are strong across the board as even Democrats (75%) and Liberals (69%) view immigration from the Middle East as dangerous.
Democratic Senator Of Largest Legislative District In Nation Switches To Republican, Republican Party Is ‘Party Of Opportunity’
— John McCain (@SenJohnMcCain) November 23, 2015
Republicans are rejoicing as the largest legislative district in the nation just flipped from blue to red.
Arizona State Senator Carlyle Begay, a Navajo (who also call themselves Diné) whose district includes Navajo and Hopi tribal lands, announced Monday that he is switching to the Republican Party.
Begay, 34, was appointed to the Arizona Senate in 2013 as a Democrat and re-elected in 2014.
In a moving video, Begay describes his Native American roots and the desperate conditions and challenges his constituents face. “This is not how our distinguished ancestors saw our future,” he said. “Change must happen now.”
Praising the GOP for working with him to improve conditions for his constituents, Begay said that his decision “will not be popular for some.”
“I clearly see the Republican Party as a party of progress, the party of opportunity, and moving forward, my party,” the video concludes.
Obama regime doesn’t even protect those who they claim to be helping, in the end, they’re just pawns to the game.
The administration has been placing youths illegally crossing over the Mexico-U.S. border with guardians with criminal histories including domestic violence, homicide, child molestation, sexual assault and human trafficking, a whistleblower has told two senators, Iowa’s Chuck Grassley and Texas Sen. John Cornyn.
In a release and letter to the secretaries of Homeland Security and Health and Human Services, the duo revealed the shocking details from the whistleblower who went to Grassley’s Senate Judiciary Committee after his Homeland supervisors ignored his allegations.
The administration’s handling of the unaccompanied alien children, who have been fleeing Latin America in record numbers for two years, is already controversial, but the new charges of kids being placed with molesters and human traffickers is sure to draw new criticism of President Obama’s open-door policies.
Still want refugees?
Germany received key intelligence regarding an imminent terror attack against a packed soccer stadium from Israeli intel services less than two weeks ago, German magazine Stern reported Wednesday.
Israeli intelligence provided the crucial information that lead German authorities to cancel a scheduled friendly soccer match between Germany and the Netherlands at Hanover Stadium on November 17.
The game was called off just four days after the attacks in Paris that killed 130 people. German Chancellor Angela Merkel had been set to attend along with other government ministers in a show of solidarity with the French.
According to Stern, Israeli intelligence had informed of an imminent threat modeled after the Paris attacks, with concrete times and targets being mentioned. One of the targets was the Hanover stadium.
Earlier in the evening, Hanover Police President Volker Kluwe said there were “specific indications” of a planned attack with explosives at the game.
“We had received specific indications that an attack with explosives was planned,” Kluwe told NDR state broadcaster. “We took them seriously and that is why we took the measures,”
Regarding the soccer stadium, police said that “the visitors, who were already in the stadium at that time, were asked to leave the stadium without panicking.”
Apart from the stadium, police also evacuated Hanover’s TUI multi-purpose arena where a concert was about to start, and what seemed to be a suspicious object was found at a local train station.
Why Did Family Of Laquan McDonald Receive $5 Million Settlement From Chicago, When He Was A Ward Of The State?
McDonald was the teen who was shot by the Chicago officer 16 times, some while he was apparently incapacitated on the ground. His family, namely his mother and sister were paid $5 million in a settlement from the city. But they were not taking care of him, the city effectively was. He was removed from his home at age 5 and grew up in foster homes. One has to wonder was he removed from the home because of the molestation?
CHICAGO (CBS) — Who was Laquan McDonald? CBS 2’s Dorothy Tucker takes a look at his complicated life from the view of educators and family friends.
Yolanda Hoskins speaks affectionately about the Laquan McDonald. He was her son’s best friend.
“Happy…and just wanted to be around somebody and feel loved,” she said.
The 17-year-old she knew liked basketball, tacos and gym shoes, but he also had a troubled past.
“He was a ward of the state,” she said. “He was molested too.”
His death at the hands of a Chicago Police officer who’s accused of shooting him 16 times prompted Hoskins to join community activists in a call for justice.
There have been questions raised about the failure to release the video earlier and some have accused Rahm Emanuel of holding it back to not hinder his election, and paying the family off. The family apparently was shown the video but did not seek to make it public, in fact, said they would prefer it not to be public as ‘what mother would want to see the execution of her son over and over’. As part of the settlement they agreed to keep it confidential.
Here’s more on the short life of Laquan McDonald. His mother at every point failed him, mother’s boyfriend abused him and he had to be removed from the home. And you wonder how he became a druggie and ended up high on PCP? Sure makes me happy his mother got $5 million dollars for how much she failed him…
Because you’re just such a sick twisted soul, you have nothing better to do than annoy your relatives on Thanksgiving.
Damn Grandma wouldn’t even leave me alone in peace with my stuffing! If any of my relatives try this, they will get a fast boot in the tambourine. But I think they all have sense, so I should be safe…

President Barack Obama on Wednesday signed a $607 billion defense policy bill despite his opposition to restrictions in the legislation that ban him from moving Guantanamo Bay detainees to the United States and making good on a long unfulfilled campaign promise.
Obama has opposed provisions preventing detainee transfers since Congress first attached the measures to spending bills in an attempt block Obama’s plans. The dispute has taken on added intensity this year because the White House has launched a final push to close to the prison before Obama leaves office.
In a statement, Obama said the bill “includes vital benefits for military personnel and their families, authorities to facilitate ongoing operations around the globe, and important reforms to the military retirement system” as well as other measures.
He added, however, that he is “deeply disappointed that the Congress has again failed to take productive action toward closing the detention facility at Guantanamo.” Keeping the prison open, Obama said, “is not consistent with our interests as a Nation and undermines our standing in the world.”
My brother who is there just told me. I came through there about two hours ago, leaving early for Thanksgiving. ‘Suspicious package’…
MIDTOWN, Manhattan — A portion of Port Authority Bus Terminal is being evacuated on the busiest travel day of the year.
The North Wing of the terminal is being evacuated after reports of a suspicious package.
Police have closed Eighth Avenue between 41st and 42nd Streets.
Travelers should expect heavy traffic and delays around the terminal.
It’s unknown how many buses are being delayed by the evacuation.

TEHRAN, Iran — Iran’s top leader said Wednesday the United States is using “money and sexual attractions” to try to infiltrate the Islamic Republic and warned Iranians not to fall into the “enemy’s trap.”
Ayatollah Ali Khamenei told Revolutionary Guard commanders that authorities should take concerns about “infiltration” seriously and political factions should not use the issue against each other.
“The enemy sets up a network within a nation and inside a country mainly through the two means of money and sexual attractions to change ideals, beliefs and consequently the lifestyle,” he said in comments posted on his website and broadcast on state TV.
Truck Drivers Passing Through Calais, France Attacked And Intimidated By Migrants Trying To Get To Britain
Just poor refugees who desire freedom…
The level of intimidation faced lorry drivers passing through Calais at the hands of migrants is “out of control” and “totally unacceptable”, a spokesman for Britain’s road haulage industry has said. His association has now set up a hotline for drivers to report threatening behaviour by migrants, but drivers using the route have dismissed it as “useless,” saying “it’s a war out there!”
Around 6,000 migrants are currently gathered at Calais, looking for an opportunity to make it across the English Channel into Britain. As their numbers swell, so they are becoming more brazen in their attempts to climb on board lorries headed to the UK.
Drivers have described being threatened at knife and gun point, being beaten with baseball bats and having their trailers slashed as migrants force their way on board, describing the situation as “a war”.
Earlier this year freight firm boss Kevin Hopper said: “It’s just a matter of time now before someone is killed.”
Gee, so he orders ads removed about a series warning about losing freedoms if the Nazis had won the war. You can’t make these things up.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo ordered that an ad campaign he didn’t like be removed from the New York City subway system, The Associated Press reports.
The ads, which had been approved by the Metropolitan Transit Authority, featured Nazi imagery and were meant to promote an Amazon video series, “The Man in the High Castle.” They were plastered on the inside of the 42nd Street shuttle train that travels between Times Square and Grand Central Station. Additionally, the ad imagery wrapped around seats on the subway.
The show is set after World War II, and explores what may have happened if the Axis powers won the war. Ridley Scott is the executive producer.
