So Muslim immigration has been altogether bad for women’s rights and safety. What a surprise.
Another incremental surrender by authorities is the decision of a German railway to institute gender-segregated trains.
Interestingly, a similar policy has used successfully in Mexico City, where the government provides women-only buses to give them relief from the incessant harassment and assault from Mexican men.
Of course, the local piggymen in Mexico were not imported from enemy territory by a delusional political leader, as they were in Europe — big difference.
And the harassment of women is only one aspect of the hostile influx, as the Brussels bombings have underlined. Why must all Europeans suffer under an invasion where their lives and freedom are at risk?
It’s not too late to deport the majority. Otherwise, the prospects of Europe surviving are dim.
A central German regional railway is launching a special women and children only area for their trains, a move which has triggered controversy.
The announcement from the central German Regiobahn line came earlier this week, with the network stating the new compartment on their Leipzig and Chemnitz would admit women and young children only.
To ensure maximum peace for those choosing to travel in that compartment not only would it be sandwiched between the service’s two quiet coaches, but it would also be next to the on-board office of the “customer service representative. Traditionally known as a train guard or ticket inspector, the company said “the local proximity to the customer service representative is chosen deliberately”.
Yet despite the recent mass sex-attacks in Germany, and the official advice to young women that the best thing to do is to keep groping migrant men “at arms length” to prevent rape, the railway denies the segregated trains has anything to do with sexual harassment. Continue reading this article
When it comes to freebies for grifter illegal aliens, the taxpayer’s hard-earned cash is never safe from liberal pickpocket politicians, who serve illegals first, not citizens. Remember, any tax money spent on illegals is cash taken from Americans who may need it, particularly when it’s healthcare dollars.
When Obamacare was rolled out, the Democrats swore up and down that illegals wouldn’t get it. Now we learn that many do, even though the money is strained through county governments. And just this week, candidate Hillary Clinton said that illegals should get government healthcare, suggesting that her administration would supply it,
Now liberals argue that it’s cheaper to pay for normal delivery of healthcare than to have illegals running to the emergency room for every little problem, which they are allowed to do by law. But that idea ignores what a huge magnet American medicine is, and people come from all over (but particularly Mexico) to get very expensive treatment for seriously ill relatives. It was reported in 2006 that “hundreds” of illegals had arrived in Colorado for “free medical care they say they can’t get back home.” The cost for all this unaccountable do-goodery must be a fortune, and America is unimaginably broke.
TUCKER CARLSON: Well, health care coverage for illegal immigrants may be banned under federal law, and it is. But a new report shows that out of 25 U.S. counties with the largest unauthorized immigrant populations, 20 of them have programs that cover medical costs for illegal aliens. It costs taxpayers more than $1 billion a year. Here to break down the numbers on this, Stuart Varney host of Varney & Co. on the Fox Business Network. We’re glad to have him this morning. Great to see you, Stuart.
STUART VARNEY: Thanks very much, Tucker. nice to be here.
CARLSON: So, this is illegal, and yet it’s happening?
VARNEY: Yes, that is precisely right. They don’t get health care coverage from the federal government. They’re not part of Obamacare, but counties in America with a large number of illegals in those counties, they do have programs to provide free or very, very low-cost health care to illegal immigrants. As you just pointed out, it’s the Wall Street Journal, they’ve looked at 20 counties in America and found that they are spending $1 billion a year to provide free or very low-cost coverage for illegals. They get doctors visits, flu shots, drugs, lab tests, some surgery, all paid for by local taxpayers. Now they, all illegals of course, can go to the emergency room. That’s the law. You’re sick, you go to the emergency room, they’ve got to treat you. Continue reading this article
An aspect of the brave new automated world may soon get a tryout in the nation’s capital. A general use delivery machine has already been rolled out for trials in London, and the concept is being hailed as cheaper and more environmentally friendly than traditional car delivery. The small sidewalk bots also appear much more practical than Jeff Bezos’ airborne drone delivery vehicles that seem inappropriate for urban settings.
Sorry, kids! No summer or part-time delivery jobs in your future.
The laws of the District of Columbia require an adjustment to allow the machines access to local sidewalks, plus public acceptance will be observed.
Drones are out, but self-driving delivery robots are in
Self-driving delivery robots could soon share the sidewalk with pedestrians and pets in the District.
A proposed bill, if passed, would allow “personal delivery devices” on sidewalks and crosswalks in D.C., except within the central business district.
Starship Technologies, the company behind these still-unnamed robots, started testing in London earlier this month. Skype co-founders Ahti Heinla and Janus Friis launched the tech startup in 2014 and plan to test their robots in about 10 other cities in the U.S.
“All deliveries today are time consuming and inefficient, polluting and creating congestion on the street,” Allan Martinson, the chief operating officer of Starship Technologies, wrote in an email. “An average family spends an hour per day on shopping trips. We would like to give people this one hour back.” Continue reading this article
There’s been a lot of talk about bad “optics” the past couple days about Obama’s tango twirls while Europe had suffered a murderous jihad attack in Brussels and perps are still at large.
But to my eye, the pope performing an Easter footwashing ritual meant to show humility in the Catholic style must look more like surrender to the headchopper thugs of ISIS. This being the migrant-loving Pope Francis, he made a show of embracing foreigner diversity by including Muslim, Christian and Hindu asylum-seekers, instead of ministering to 12 Catholic men as previous popes have done.
Humbling himself to Muslim invaders can easily be seen by jihadists as a big step forward in their plan to defeat the Christians in the Catholics’ capital city. (See my blog from last fall: A Goal of ISIS Is to Conquer Rome in Five Years). Showing weakness to the bloodthirsty enemies of civilization and freedom is unwise to say the least.
In a special rite commemorating the Last Supper of Jesus with his disciples, Pope Francis washed and kissed the feet of 11 Muslim, Christian and Hindu asylum-seekers Thursday and declared them all children of the same Father.
The Holy Thursday ritual re-enacts Jesus washing his apostles’ feet before being crucified, and is meant as a gesture of service. Francis contrasted that gesture with the “gesture of war” carried out by the Brussels attackers on Monday.
Instead of celebrating Mass in the Vatican as usual, the Pope traveled to the welcome center in the town of Castelnuovo di Porto, where he greeted the asylum-seekers, many of whom are not Christians. Continue reading this article
One of President Obama’s deeply desired projects is to empty out Gitmo prison because it just irritates him to see dear Muslims locked up and wearing orange.
Or something. Freeing Gitmo jihadists has always been unpopular with the American people as shown in polling.
So Obama has released many of them over the years. And a substantial number, around 30 percent, predictably went back to fighting for allah.
Yesterday, the fact that some number of Americans have been killed by Obama’s Gitmo graduates came out during a House hearing. But the number is a secret from the American people, even though there’s no national security reason to suppress that figure. It’s another example of Obama’s failures in foreign policy and one that has cost lives, like Benghazi. And the public would then want to know the names of the citizens whose deaths could have been prevented. The White House can’t allow that.
Americans “have died because of” detainees released from the detention facility in Guantanamo Bay, a Defense Department official said Wednesday.
The comments, from special envoy Paul Lewis, came during a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing, and may provide more fuel for critics of President Obama’s long-anticipated plan to shutter the prison, which he announced last month.
During the hearing, Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., asked Lewis how many people had died because of “terrorists who went back to their terrorist activity.”
When Lewis responded that he would prefer to discuss the matter in a “classified setting,” Rohrabacher pressed him, asking if it was “over 10.”
“Sir, what I can tell you is unfortunately there have been Americans that have died because of Gitmo detainees,” Lewis said.
Lewis did not provide additional details.
When Rohrabacher asked “how many people in Brussels or Paris have to die” before the administration decides to keep detainees “under control” at the facility, Lewis responded: “We don’t want anyone to die because we transfer detainees. However, it is the best judgment and the considered judgment of this administration and the previous that the risk of keeping Gitmo open is outweighed, that we should close Gitmo.”
Here’s a video of Congressman Dana Rohrabacher quizzing the administration representative. The relevant discussion begins around 2:56:
The most recent is from Benghazi defender, Mark “Oz” Geist. It’s inspiring to hear a genuine hero talk about American courage:
I know the truth about Benghazi.
I was there, fighting alongside five Americans, who were all raised to believe that if you have a chance to save someone’s life and you don’t try, that’s more criminal than anything else. So we fought for 13 hours, and we saved lives. But we are not unique.
We are no different than the Americans who ran back into those crumbling New York towers, or the Americans who tackled the armed terrorists on that French train, or the many faceless, nameless Americans who every day risk their lives for perfect strangers trapped in burning cars or dangerous waters—because if they didn’t, no one would.
Where was that courage among the politicians who had the power to make a difference during those 13 hours in Benghazi?
I am the National Rifle Association of America, and I am Freedom’s Safest Place.
People who care about the Second Amendment should pay attention to immigration-fueled demographic change in this country, because hispanics are gun grabbers at heart, as Pew pollsters discovered in a 2014 survey:
An early 2014 Pew Research Center survey asked U.S. adults what is more important — protecting the right of Americans to own guns or controlling gun ownership (Pew Research Center, 2014d). Hispanic registered voters nationally say they prefer gun control over the rights of owners by a margin of 62%-to-36%, as do black registered voters by a margin of 71%-to-26%, according to the survey. By contrast, white registered voters choose gun owners’ rights over gun control by a margin of 59%-to-39%. Continue reading this article
Robert Spencer has written numerous books warning about unfriendly Islam. I’ve read several and found them quite good. My only complaint is that he doesn’t mention immigration enough as how Islamic evil is transported from there to here.
So I appreciated Spencer’s recent op-ed (posted below) recommending that Europe get serious about its survival by shutting down the disastrous flow of “refugees” from the Middle East and beyond.
Robert Spencer appeared on Newsmax TV on Tuesday to discuss the Brussels attacks and general threat level.
STEVE MALZBERG: [2:24] How vulnerable are we, based on who you believe is already in this country?
ROBERT SPENCER: We’re 100 percent vulnerable, Steve. It could easily happen here. The fact is that the Islamic State threatened in February 2015 to flood Europe with 500,000 refugees, and of course we know courtesy of Barack Obama that tens of thousands of those refugees have come here. There is no way to vet them. The Obama administration says they will vet them and keep out all the jihadis. It cannot be done. The Islamic State has emphasized that its operatives should not wear beards, not carry korans, not even go to mosque, blend in with the local population, appear to be moderates if even Muslim at all, and wait for time to strike. You can’t vet against that.
Tashfeen Malik, the San Bernardino shooter — she passed five separate background checks from five different American agencies because they were all vetting for criminal records. She didn’t have a criminal record. The Islamic State very carefully recruits people who don’t have criminal records, so we are just asking for this kind of attack to happen here, and it’s only a matter of time. . .
[ISIS] is a very sophisticated group. It controls a territory larger than Great Britain, it has access to oil wells that are bringing in billions of dollars in black market oil money, and it has issued very detailed manuals to its followers on how they can and should mount attacks on both civilian and military personnel inside the United States. They are intent on mounting so many such attacks in the United States that they will overwhelm the system and ultimately cause it to collapse. That is something they are very much capable of doing.
The death toll in Tuesday morning’s jihadist attacks in Brussels is now 31. The political toll is almost as catastrophic: These jihad attacks in Brussels show anew the abject failure of Europe’s policies regarding Muslim immigration and multiculturalism.
Last year, the Islamic State warned that it was going to flood Europe with 500,000 refugees, among whom there would be an unknown number of jihadists. Now ISIS has done it. Europeans need to repudiate these policies and lawfully remove the politicians who are responsible for them.
But now in the automation age, just performing the job may define computer algorithms that enable a smart machine to replicate the tasks 24/7 with no breaks, sick leave or paychecks. Human workers lose.
The brave new futurist world is here. The advances of computer technology have produced an array of consequences that are fundamentally reshaping our society, even undermining the core principle of incomes based on tasks performed. When millions of humans are replaced by machines (as is happening now in the jobless recovery) how is a post-worker economy supposed to function?
At the least, immigration should be reduced to near ZERO, since it is a relic of the pre-automation age. The few remaining jobs should be available for American citizens.
Almost half of U.S. jobs may one day be automated. For some employees who worked at a free on-demand concierge, that day came last month.
For about a year, Sam Fox-Hartin had worked for an on-demand concierge startup called GoButler as a “Hero,” the company’s term for employees who field users’ requests, via text message, and then complete tasks such as booking tables at restaurants, scheduling appointments, or ordering food for delivery on their behalf. Most of these tasks, like the ones I watched Fox-Hartin maneuver when GoButler invited me to visit its New York headquarters last year, were fairly routine. But he also wrote poems. Convinced couriers to deliver dry ice. And in response to one particularly odd request, drew “some horses hanging around a campfire.” As a comedy writer and former philosophy major, he brought creative enthusiasm to the job. “I’m by no means a gifted visual artist,” he says of the horse drawing, “but I tried my best.”
In late February, he learned he was about to be replaced by an algorithm that he’d unwittingly helped build.
GoButler’s CFO called Fox-Hartin at home to tell him the news (he wasn’t at work on the day the announcement was made). The company had decided to move to “a more automated product,” he said. Instead of offering an “everything and anything” service, GoButler would reinvent itself as a fully automated discovery and booking tool. The first category would be air travel, and Priceline would pay GoButler a fee for every ticket it sold. GoButler no longer needed heroes, or Fox-Hartin.
Nowhere is the potential for job automation so obvious as it is in the on-demand economy, where many startups have grown fat with venture capital despite poor unit-economics. Uber is spending heavily to hasten the development of driverless cars. Instacart, Postmates, and other delivery-heavy startups are unlikely to stick with humans once machines—which don’t take sick days, need bathroom breaks, or threaten to unionize—can do the same jobs.

South of the border, there are big Mexican plans for defeating Donald Trump in his campaign to become President of the United States. In an “unprecedented effort” by Mexico, that government is meddling in our internal affairs by helping legal (!) resident Mexicans get US citizenship to vote against the Republican front-runner.
Our unfriendly neighbor claims to respect American sovereignty but has a funny way of showing it. The effort is off the charts because the Mexican government is holding “citizenship clinics” at its consulates which are officially territory of Mexico.
Actually, it’s the same old backstabbing behavior with which we have become familiar.
SHERIFF BABEU: They’re holding these actual citizenship meetings and one was held just in Vegas recently — 500 plus deferred action are looking to go to this meeting to find out what is it going to take to go from that permanent status to actually gain citizenship which means they get to vote. That’s troubling, that’s concerning, that’s unprecedented in the fact that Mexico and its diplomats are going all out to make this effort now, during our election. . . .
It feeds into the whole Democrat playbook. We saw just recently Hillary Clinton and Bernie both take the pledge by [Jorge] Ramos saying that they would not only defer action, they would never deport any of these illegals who are here.
Hillary Clinton went a step even further and says she wants to put all 12 million illegals on a path to citizenship. This is even over-reaching anything President Obama has done.
Interestingly, the Texas reporting about the consulate shenanigans provided a view into the Mexicans’ disinterest in becoming loyal Americans — instead, the desire for US voting is all about defeating Trump and the citizens who want their sovereignty defended. There is no positive feeling or gratitude toward America to be seen. In fact, the deputy consul Victor Arriaga assured the immigrants that “It is perfectly fine to have a second nationality.” In addition he observed that “People are very proud of being Mexican and want to retain their Mexican identity.”
A man from Chihuaha got the message, saying, “I won’t lose my Mexican nationality. I’ll have dual citizenship.”
This attitude is nothing new. Mexicans regard the US as extended territory of Mexico which belong to them more than us. In 1997, then-President Zedillo proclaimed, “I have proudly affirmed that the Mexican nation extends beyond the territory enclosed by its borders.”
DALLAS — Presidential candidate Donald Trump wants to build a huge wall along the Mexican border.
Mexican immigrants Lilia Garcia and Antonino Reyes want to build one around themselves.
This month, Garcia and Reyes joined a growing surge of legal permanent residents across the country inspired to seek U.S. citizenship in an effort to defend themselves against the leading Republican candidate.
Call it “efecto Trump,” the Trump effect.
“I want to vote now,” says Garcia, a 52-year-old native of Irapuato. “It will be easier to get my rights, and I want to show solidarity with the people who still need documents.”
Reyes, who is 84, fingers yellowed Mexican documents that look fragile like leaves and explain life passages like birth, marriage and entry into the U.S. Reyes wants to vote, too. “I want to do this because I see this senor Donald Trump. He’s crazy,” Reyes says.
Garcia, Reyes and other Mexican immigrants have an unusual ally in their quest — the Mexican government. The U.S. citizenship workshops at Mexican consulates are a first for the Mexican government — and part of a chain of such events being held by key consulates in the U.S., said Victor Arriaga, deputy Mexican consul in Dallas. The consulate is working with groups like Catholic Charities and the North Texas Dream Team and with pro-bono lawyers.
Arriaga worked the crowd at a recent Saturday workshop, telling them they could retain Mexican citizenship while also holding U.S. citizenship.
“It is perfectly fine to have a second nationality,” Arriaga said, explaining a Mexican law in 1998 that changed the rules covering Mexican citizenship and nationality. “People are very proud of being Mexican and want to retain their Mexican identity. But they can still be a citizen here and experience their rights here.” Continue reading this article
Today the capital city of the European Union is shut down because of Islamic immigration and the slaughter it has brought. Dozens have been killed in multiple explosions in Brussels. Smart phones make it easy for jihadists to co-ordinate simultaneous attacks in a city or across a continent, as apparently happened in the New Year’s attacks.
The Belgian Army has been deployed in Brussels, as the central city is being deserted by citizens who are forced to walk home because public transport is closed. People are told to stay in place because the country is at war.
It was probably unwise for Belgian authorities to reveal that recently captured jihadist Salah Abdeslam, the wanna-be Paris suicide bomber, was spilling his guts about European Islamics, thereby triggering the attack before police began making arrests. Judge Andrew Napolitano called such real-time revelations by interrogators a “catastrophic mistake” and could be prosecuted in the United States as an obstruction of justice.
Islamic State claimed responsibility for attacks on Brussels airport and a rush-hour metro train in the Belgian capital on Tuesday which killed at least 30 people, a news agency affiliated to the group said.
The coordinated assault triggered security alerts across Europe and drew global expressions of support, four days after Brussels police had captured the prime surviving suspect in Islamic State’s attacks on Paris last November.
A witness said he heard shouts in Arabic and shots shortly before two blasts struck a packed airport departure lounge at Brussels airport. The federal prosecutor said one of the explosions was probably triggered by a suicide bomber.
Belgian media published a security camera picture of three young men pushing laden luggage trolleys through the airport and reported that police suspected them of being the attackers. They said two were suspected of having blown themselves up while police were hunting the third. Continue reading this article
Over in Australia, the Domino Pizza people are thrilled with their robot delivery vehicle about to be rolled out. So advanced and sparkly!
The well lit machine kadoodles along sidewalks, dodging pedestrians and other obstacles at up to 12 mph and is equipped with a warm compartment for pies and a cold section for soft drinks. No driver required!
The pizza delivery robot is another example of how rapidly smart machines are moving into the fast-food business. That’s not good news for low-skilled workers or anyone who needs a part-time gig to keep some cash coming in. The CEO of Carl’s Jr. Andy Puzder remarked last week, “If you’re making labor more expensive, and automation less expensive — this is not rocket science.” (Fast-food CEO says he’s investing in machines because he can’t afford to pay workers, Yahoo.com).
Given the increasing rush to automation, it makes no sense to continue admitting millions of low-skilled immigrants and illegal aliens. If indeed nearly half of US jobs are susceptible to being taken by smart machines in less than 20 years as forecast by Oxford University researchers, then the number of immigrants should be ZERO.
Domino’s Pizza is beating swords into plowshares in Australia by re-purposing military training robots into autonomous pizza delivery vehicles. On March 16, Domino’s Pizza Australia introduced its newest employee to the pizza-loving public, a four-wheeled, self-driving robot called the Domino’s Robotic Unit (DRU for short). Designed and built over the past year in collaboration with a military robot technology startup called Marathon Robotics, DRU is based on autonomous robots used for live fire training.
Small and sturdy, DRU is just under four feet tall, weighs a little over 400 pounds, and is built from steel, aluminum, and various high-impact plastics. It can travel at speeds up to 12 miles per hour on sidewalks and over smooth terrain, and with a full charge has a maximum range of about 12 miles. To find its way around, DRU uses a combination of onboard collision sensors, LIDAR, and a GPS system powered by Google Maps. For protection from drunks, college kids, and other ne’er-do-wells, DRU has a well-secured cargo hold and mounts a number of IP cameras that will stream constantly to the cloud to record any attempted vandalism or pizza-jacking.

In Eastern Europe, people have long memories and have not forgotten earlier battles with Islam and tyranny under the rule of the Ottoman Muslims. Part of Hungary was ruled by Ottomans from 1541 to 1699, an experience Hungarians do not want to repeat under the current invasion hijrah.
Below, in the Battle of Mohacs (1526), the Ottoman invaders, led by Suleiman the Magnificent, defeated the Kingdom of Hungary, which led to the partition of Hungary for several centuries.
Last fall, Hungary built a fence along its border to block the access of thousands of unwanted foreigners, who promptly rioted in anger. That’s not the conduct of genuine “refugees” but is rather how thwarted illegal alien invaders behave.
Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban spoke on March 15 to commemorate his nation’s independence from the Austrian Empire. He took the occasion to criticize the weakness of Europe in the face of a stubborn intruder. He called for freedom from the unaccountable superstate in Brussels that forces member states to accept hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens. He recognized that the purpose for some of the great migrant invasion is the “occupation of territory,” an attitude marked by the intention “to reshape the religious and cultural landscape of Europe.” Orban urged fellow Hungarians and Europeans to resist an invasion disguised as humanitarian resettlement.
Freedom is not the natural order of society, and it must be defended because once lost, it is very hard to retrieve.
Below is a portion of the original speech; the entire address can be read here.
VIKTOR ORBAN: The destiny of the Hungarians has become intertwined with that of Europe’s nations and has grown to be so much a part of the union that today not a single people — including the Hungarian people — can be free if Europe is not free. And today Europe is as fragile, weak and sickly as “a flower being eaten away by a hidden worm.” Today, 168 years after the great Wars of Independence of the European peoples, Europe, our common home is not free! Ladies and Gentlemen, Europe is not free.
Because freedom begins with speaking the truth. Today in Europe it is forbidden to speak the truth. Even if it is made of silk, a muzzle is a muzzle. It is forbidden to say that those arriving are not refugees, but that Europe is threatened by migration. It is forbidden to say that tens of millions are ready to set out in our direction.
It is forbidden to say that immigration brings crime and terror to our countries. It is forbidden to point out that the masses arriving from other civilizations endanger our way of life, our culture, our customs and our Christian traditions. It is forbidden to point out that those who arrived earlier have have already built up their own new, separate world for themselves, with its own laws and ideals, which is forcing apart the thousand-year-old structure of Europe. It is forbidden to point out that this is not an accidental and unintentional chain of consequences, but a preplanned and orchestrated operation; a mass of people directed towards us.
