Netherlands Liberal MP Tjeerd de Groot calls for livestock production to be reduced by half

Last year, I published this blog post, which is called, “Here’s how most Venezuelans lost an average of 43 pounds in two years.”

Here’s a photograph from 2014 of people in Venezuela waiting in line for food: (posted here under fair use from http://www.businessinsider.com/long-food-lines-are-in-venezuela-2014-2 )

It looks like the Netherlands might be trying to achieve a similar effect.

The BBC just reported:

Liberal MP Tjeerd de Groot called for livestock production to be halved, meaning six million fewer pigs and 50 million fewer chickens

Meanwhile, I’d like to once again remind everyone that Bernie Sanders actually said that it was a “good thing” when people have to wait in line for food.

These are Sanders’s exact words:

“It’s funny, sometimes American journalists talk about how bad a country is, cause people are lining up for food. That’s a good thing! In other countries people don’t line up for food: the rich get the food and the poor starve to death.”

You can see and hear Sanders saying those words in this video:

Depending on how things go next year, Bernie Sanders may be the next U.S. President.

Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez refuse to answer reporter’s questions regarding whether or not they condemn the recent Antifa terrorist attack on an ICE facility in Tacoma, Washington

The Rebel reporter Keean Bexte repeatedly asked Ilhan Omar whether or not she condemned the recent Antifa terrorist attack on an Immigration and Customs Enforcement facility in Tacoma, Washington.

Omar repeatedly refused to answer Bexte’s questions.

These are the questions that Bexte asked Omar, and which Omar refused to answer:

“Will you condemn the Antifa attack in Washington over the weekend?”

“It’s easy to condemn terrorism. Will you condemn it?”

“Antifa firebombed a facility in Tacoma over the weekend – it’s an ICE facility – will you condemn them for that?”

You can see it in this video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TjwnRmtSNEY

Bexte also repeatedly asked Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez if she condemned the attack.

And just like Omar, Ocasio-Cortez repeatedly refused to answer Bexte’s questions.

These are the questions that Bexte asked Ocasio-Cortez, and which Ocasio-Cortez refused to answer:

“Will you condemn Antifa for the attack in Washington?”

“It’s easy to condemn a terrorist attack. Will you be condemning Antifa?”

“They firebombed an American facility. Will you condemn them?”

“Will you be condemning them?”

You can see it in this video. Skip to 2:02

Philadelphia Islamic center teaches children to sing, “We will chop off their heads”

Video Of Philly Islamic Center Children Singing They Will ‘Chop Off Their Heads’ For Allah Sparks Investigation

May 5, 2019

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KHXCmEWxMY4

The Muslim American Society pledged Friday to investigate a videoed incident of children at its Philadelphia Islamic center singing about conquering Jerusalem and beheading people.

The Muslim American Society (MAS) Islamic Center in Philadelphia initially posted video of the children adorned in Palestinian scarves singing in celebration of “Ummah Day” in April, but translation by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) revealed the threatening nature of their lyrics.

The children sang about subjecting their enemies to “eternal torture,” beheading people, and retaking the Al Aqsa Mosque and achieving martyrdom as members of Allah’s army.

The Washington, D.C.-based MAS claimed the Philadelphia center simply failed to properly vet the songs and that they would investigate the incident following public outcry on social media after Fox News reported it on May 3.

“We will defend the land of divine guidance with our bodies, and we will sacrifice our souls without hesitation,” one girl says in the video. “We will chop off their heads, and we will liberate the sorrowful and exalted Al-Aqsa Mosque. We will lead the army of Allah fulfilling His promise, and we will subject them to eternal torture.”

The MAS issued a statement Friday apologizing for the songs, claiming the incident was “an unintended mistake.”

“While we celebrate the coming together of different cultures and languages, not all songs were properly vetted,” the statement read, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer. “This was an unintended mistake and an oversight in which the center and the students are remorseful. MAS will conduct an internal investigation to ensure this does not occur again.”

The statement appears to have since been removed from both the organization’s website and its Facebook page.

“These are not isolated incidents; they are happening in major centers of the country – including in Pennsylvania,” MEMRI said in a statement to Fox News.

It’s too soon to either blame or rule out arson as the cause of the Notre-Dame Cathedral fire. I will wait for the forensics investigation. In the meantime, who is this person in this video?

Given that they have not conducted an official forensics investigation yet, and given that such an investigation can take months, I don’t see how they can be saying for certain that the Notre-Dame Cathedral fire wasn’t arson.

A live broadcast by a French TV station showed an unidentified person walking around, way up high in the building, after the fire started. This person is neither a construction worker nor a firefighter.

I’m not saying this was arson. And I’m not saying this was not arson.

What I am saying is that:

1) There hasn’t been enough time to determine the cause, or to rule out any cause. So it seems really weird that people have already ruled out arson.

2) The person in this video has not been identified.

I just added items #1,367 through #1,375 to my list of Obama’s lies and lawbreaking

The complete list can be found at https://danfromsquirrelhill.wordpress.com/2013/08/15/obama-252/

Here are the new entries:

1,367) Chicago community organizers accused Chicago community organizer Obama of not practicing what he preaches

Before Obama ran for political office, he was a community organizer in Chicago.

Later, as an ex-President, he was planning to build his presidential library in Chicago.

However, the city’s other community organizers accused Obama of not practicing what he preaches.

In November 2017, the Washington Post reported:

In what local pundits are calling the irony of ironies, Obama — who cut his teeth as a South Side community organizer — is now in the bull’s eye of the area’s community organizers.

Dozens of groups have asked the city, the Obama Foundation and the University of Chicago (the official library host) to sign a legally binding pledge to protect low-income housing and homeowners, set aside 80 percent of jobs for immediate neighbors and bolster support for black-owned businesses, among other things.

At a community meeting last month, Obama said he wasn’t interested, according to the Chicago Tribune. Agreements such as those, he said, can be highly successful for communities dealing with for-profit developers.

“But here’s the thing,” he said. “We are a nonprofit and aren’t making money. We are just bringing money to the community.”

1,368) Obama was photographed smiling with racist and anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan

Louis Farrakhan is a racist and anti-Semite.

Askia Muhammad is a professional, award-winning journalist who “doggedly covered” Obama.

In 2005, Muhammad took a photograph of Obama and Farrakhan smiling together.

However, Muhammad did not let the photograph be published at the time.

It wasn’t until a year after Obama left the White House that Muhammad allowed the photograph to be published.

In January 2018, Muhammad said that he held the photograph back from publication because, regarding Obama’s chance of getting elected President:

“I insist. It absolutely would have made a difference.”

1,369) Photographs show how horribly the Obama administration treated illegal aliens

The photographs at this link show how horribly the Obama administration treated illegal aliens.

1,370) Obama supporters falsely blamed President Trump for a 2014 photograph of illegal alien children being mistreated by the Obama administration

In May 2018, Obama supporters falsely blamed President Trump for a 2014 photograph of illegal alien children being mistreated by the Obama administration.

1,371) “Obama administration approved $200G grant to group with Al Qaeda ties”

In July 2018, Fox News reported:

Obama administration approved $200G grant to group with Al Qaeda ties

The Obama administration approved a $200,000 grant to a group in Sudan with ties to Al Qaeda even though it had been designated a terrorist-financing organization by the U.S. years earlier…

Further, an agency official acknowledged the prior administration allowed taxpayer money to flow to the group even after its designation was discovered.

The 2014 grant to the Islamic Relief Agency, through the U.S. Agency for International Development, was revealed by Sam Westrop of the Middle East Forum in a story for the National Review.

“More stunningly, government officials specifically authorized the release of at least $115,000 of this grant even after learning that it was a designated terror organization,” Westrop wrote in the article.

1,372) The “most transparent administration in history” did not tell the public when it approved a $200,000 grant to an organization with ties to Al Qaeda

In 2014, the Obama administration approved a $200,000 grant to the Islamic Relief Agency, a Sudanese organization with ties to Al Qaeda. However, the grant was kept secret until 2018.

1,373) After Obama said “I do think at a certain point you’ve made enough money,” he signed a book deal which was worth at least $30 million

In April 2010, Obama said

“I do think at a certain point you’ve made enough money.”

You can see him saying it at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IpoTSeuLffA

However, less than two months after leaving the White House, he signed a book deal which was worth at least $30 million.

1,374) At the same time that Obama criticized rich people who owned mansions, he owned an $8.1 million mansion

In July 2018, Obama said:

“There’s only so much you can eat. There’s only so big a house you can have. There’s only so many nice trips you can take. I mean, it’s enough.”

“History shows that societies which tolerate vast differences in wealth feed resentments and reduce solidarity and actually grow more slowly. And when economic power is concentrated in the hands of the few, history also shows that political power is sure to follow and that dynamic eats away at democracy.”

However, in June 2017, Obama had purchased an $8.1 million mansion in Washington D.C.

1,375) Obama nominee Judge Staci Michelle Yandle illegally maintained the U.S. citizenship of al-Qaida terrorist Iyman Faris, who had met with Osama bin Laden, had planned to destroy the Brooklyn Bridge, and had falsely claimed to be a student on his immigration application

In January 2014, Obama nominated Staci Michelle Yandle to be a judge on the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Illinois.

In July 2018, Yandle ruled that an immigrant and al-Qaida terrorist named Iyman Faris could keep his U.S. citizenship.

However, Yandle’s ruling was in violation of federal law. Federal law required Faris to be deported because he had lied on his immigration application.

Faris had traveled to Afghanistan, where he had met with Osama bin Laden.

Faris had also traveled to Pakistan, where he had met with Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, who was named as “the principal architect of the 9/11 attacks” in the 9/11 Commission Report. Mohammed told Faris that he was setting up a plan to destroy the Brooklyn Bridge by slashing its suspension cables. Faris agreed to participate in this.

Like the 9/11 terrorists, Faris had come to the U.S. on a student visa, but never actually enrolled in school.

ABC News reported that Faris had

“admitted he was an al Qaeda sleeper – a terrorist lying in wait for instructions”

and that he

“had access to airports and was licensed to haul flammable, poisonous chemicals”

Fox News, July 27, 2018: Obama administration approved $200G grant to group with Al Qaeda ties

Obama administration approved $200G grant to group with Al Qaeda ties

July 27, 2018

The Obama administration approved a $200,000 grant to a group in Sudan with ties to Al Qaeda even though it had been designated a terrorist-financing organization by the U.S. years earlier, a conservative think tank revealed this week.

Further, an agency official acknowledged the prior administration allowed taxpayer money to flow to the group even after its designation was discovered.

The 2014 grant to the Islamic Relief Agency, through the U.S. Agency for International Development, was revealed by Sam Westrop of the Middle East Forum in a story for the National Review.

“More stunningly, government officials specifically authorized the release of at least $115,000 of this grant even after learning that it was a designated terror organization,” Westrop wrote in the article.

Shame on Trump for continuing Obama’s insane policy of hiring air-traffic controllers based on race instead of merit!

When Obama was president, he abandoned the old system of hiring qualified air-traffic controllers who had a college degree in air-traffic control and/or were military veterans with aviation experience, because too many of these people were white males. Obama then replaced the old system with a new system that tried to achieve racial diversity by asking applicants how many different sports they had played when they were in high school. I explain this below in detail.

But first, I want to post this new video from Fox News, which shows that Trump is continuing with Obama’s ridiculous policy:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qh9SxqsQdpo

The Wall St. Journal has also written an article about Trump’s continuation of Obama’s absurd policy, which you can read at this link.

Now, to explain Obama’s policy in detail.

When Obama was president, the Federal Aviation Administration stopped giving preferential treatment to air-traffic controller applicants who had passed classes from the 36 FAA-approved college aviation programs across the U.S., because too many of the people who passed these classes were white males.

At the same time, the FAA also stopped giving preference to applicants who were military veterans with aviation experience.

Under the new system, applicants were asked how many different high school sports they had participated in.

In 2014, the Wall St. Journal reported:

For years, aspiring air-traffic controllers in the U.S. have enrolled in schools selected by the Federal Aviation Administration to offer special courses that could smooth the way for a job at the agency.

But at the end of December, the FAA abruptly ended that special status for the 36 participating colleges and universities…

… some critics suspect it is intended partly to increase the share of minorities and women among controllers, who are now 83% male and white…

Some school officials say their controller enrollment already has fallen off because of the FAA change.

The FAA’s new stance “just doesn’t make sense,” said Douglas Williams, aviation-program director at the Community College of Baltimore County in Catonsville, Md… “They’re not getting the best-qualified applicants this way,” he said.

Students who have studied for the controller degrees fear they wasted time and money. Navy veteran Oscar Vega recently completed the two-year air-traffic program at Mt. San Antonio College in Walnut, Calif. He said he passed the FAA controller aptitude test last year, so he was shocked when, in February, he failed the biographical assessment.

“They say you can take it again,” said the 28-year-old. “But it’s not a test you can study for. And we don’t know why we failed because we don’t get any feedback.”

The schools estimate that more than 3,000 graduates have been removed from the FAA’s hiring pool because of the new policy.

In 2014, the Chicago Tribune reported:

More than half of the latest batch of air-traffic controller job offers nationwide went to people with no aviation experience…

The hiring breakdown marks a major shift in FAA recruitment strategy, which is now geared toward… attracting more minorities and women to the nation’s largely white and male controller work force

For almost the last 25 years, until the off-the-street hiring process was implemented in February, the FAA recruited controllers heavily from among military veterans possessing aviation experience and from the 36 FAA-approved college aviation programs across the U.S.

A sample version of the new test includes the following question:

21. The number of different high school sports I participated in was:

A- 4 or more

B- 3

C- 2

D- 1

E- didn’t play sports

Trump has now been president for more than a year, and this policy remains in place.

Shame on Trump for continuing Obama’s insane policy of hiring air-traffic controllers based on race instead of merit!

Hypocrite liberals require audience members to show “racist” photo ID to see “Hamilton”

Liberals are always saying that it’s “racist” whenever Republicans want to require voters to show photo ID.

However, as I show below, there are plenty of examples where liberals themselves require “racist” photo ID.

R.I.P. NYPD police officer Miosotis Familia, who was murdered while on duty

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/07/05/nyregion/nypd-bronx-police-shooting.html

Police Officer Is ‘Murdered for Her Uniform’ in the Bronx

July 5, 2017



Above: Miosotis Familia

On a corner in the Bronx strained by steady rancor over unsolved crimes, and distrust of the police, Officer Miosotis Familia was a balm.

She had earned a reputation as “a good policewoman” in the short time she was assigned to an R.V.-style police command post at East 183rd Street and Morris Avenue, two miles north of Yankee Stadium, a longtime resident, Roma Martinez, said. She waved hello; she spoke Spanish.

But long before she arrived, a hostility toward law enforcement personnel was building in Alexander Bonds, who had been in and out of prisons and jails for 15 years and was slipping into severe mental illness. Last year he warned in a Facebook video that he would not back down if he encountered police officers on the streets: “I got broken ribs for a reason, son. We gonna shake.”

His girlfriend called 911 on Tuesday night and told the police that Mr. Bonds “was acting in a manic, depressed state — paranoid,” a law enforcement official said. When officers arrived, he had gone.

About three hours later, with Fourth of July fireworks still going off, Mr. Bonds strode up to Officer Familia’s command post and fired a .38-caliber revolver through a window, killing her with a bullet to the head. She was the first female New York Police Department officer killed in the line of duty since the Sept. 11 attacks, and only the third female officer killed in a combat-type encounter in the department’s history.

The New York City police commissioner, James P. O’Neill, said in a message to officers that she was “assassinated without warning, without provocation, in a direct attack on police officers assigned to safeguard the people of New York City.” And once again the city was plunged into mourning over a targeted police killing that appeared to result in part from a swirl of mental illness and anger at the police, two and a half years after a man with a similar history fatally shot two officers through their patrol car windows.

In the command post around 12:30 a.m., Officer Familia’s partner, Vincent Maher, pleaded for help over the radio: “My partner’s shot! My partner’s shot!” His call drew scores of officers and turned stretches of Independence Day festivities into a crime scene.

Officers chased Mr. Bonds, 34, who wore a black hooded sweatshirt, black pants, black sneakers and black gloves. When they confronted him, he pointed his five-shot Ruger revolver at them and fired, a preliminary investigation indicates. The officers — a sergeant and a patrol officer — shot him dead. A bystander struck during the shootout was in stable condition.

“He clearly had to look at her to get the kind of target acquisition it would take to shoot somebody in the head,” a law enforcement official said. “It does not appear that he fired a whole lot of shots at her. So it looked like a straight-up assassination.”

MSNBC confirms that President Obama used the federal government to spy on Donald Trump

Yesterday, on March 28, 2017, while speaking live on MSNBC, Evelyn Farkas, who had been Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense as part of President Obama’s administration, said that the Obama administration had spied on Donald Trump.

Here’s the video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gapRNpEjXUo

A quick online search shows that this has not so far been covered by the New York Times, the Washington Post, Associated Press, Reuters, or any other mainstream media source.

But the video is out there.

And even if YouTube takes it down, someone else will always be able to put it back up. If not on YouTube, then somewhere else instead.

This was live TV. Live TV sometimes has its “oops” moments, which, in today’s internet age, can never be totally covered up.

Video: Democrats groan when Trump announces office to help victims of immigrant crime

Democrats Groan When Trump Announces Office To Help Victims Of Immigrant Crime

February 28, 2017

Democratic lawmakers let their opposition be known Tuesday to President Trump’s plan to open an office aimed at helping the victims of crimes committed by immigrants.

Democrats groaned loudly when Trump announced the creation of Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement (VOICE), an office which will fall under the purview of the Department of Homeland Security.

“I have ordered the Department of Homeland Security to create an office to serve American Victims.  The office is called VOICE –- Victims Of Immigration Crime Engagement. We are providing a voice to those who have been ignored by our media, and silenced by special interests,” said Trump.

A chorus of groans rippled through the audience at the joint session of Congress.

Trump then introduced the families of several people who have been killed by illegal immigrants in the U.S.

Canada frees man who beheaded a stranger on a bus

http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/C/CN_CANADA_BUS_BEHEADING?SITE=AP&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT&CTIME=2017-02-11-11-35-45

Freedom granted to man who beheaded bus passenger in Canada

February 11, 2017

WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — A Canadian man who was found not criminally responsible for beheading and cannibalizing a fellow passenger on a Greyhound bus has been granted his freedom.

Manitoba’s Criminal Code Review Board announced Friday it has given Will Baker, formerly known as Vince Li, an absolute discharge, meaning he is no longer subject to monitoring.

Baker, a diagnosed schizophrenic, killed Tim McLean, a young carnival worker who was a complete stranger to Baker, in 2008. A year later he was found not criminally responsible due to mental illness.

McLean’s mother, Carol de Delley, has been outspoken against granting Baker freedom, saying there would be no way to ensure he continued to take his medication.

She declined comment in a post on Facebook Friday, saying “I have no words.”

Baker was initially kept in a secure wing of a psychiatric hospital but was given more freedom every year.

He has been living on his own in a Winnipeg apartment since November, but was still subject to monitoring to ensure he took his medication.

Baker’s doctor, Jeffrey Waldman, told the board earlier this week that he is confident Baker will remain on his medication and will continue to work with his treatment team if released. Waldman testified that Baker knows it’s the medication that keeps his illness at bay.

In a written decision, the review board said it “is of the opinion that the weight of evidence does not substantiate that Mr. Baker poses a significant threat to the safety of the public.”

Waldman said Baker plans to visit his native China if released but would live in Winnipeg for the next two to three years. He is on the waiting list for a post-secondary training program and plans on establishing a career in the city. Baker emigrated to Canada from China in 2001 and became a Canadian citizen four years ago.

Baker sat next to the 22-year-old McLean on the bus after the man smiled at him and asked how he was doing.

Baker said he heard the voice of God telling him to kill the man or “die immediately.”

He repeatedly stabbed McLean while he fought for his life. As passengers fled the bus, Baker continued stabbing and mutilating the body before he was arrested. He severed McLean’s head, displaying it to some of the passengers outside the bus, witnesses said.

The Supreme Court of Canada ruled in 1999 that a review board must order an absolute discharge if a person doesn’t pose a significant threat to public safety.

The ruling added there must be clear evidence of a significant risk to the public for the review board to continue imposing conditions after a person is found not criminally responsible.

Opposition Conservative member of Parliament James Bezan also criticized Baker’s release. He said earlier in the week it would be an insult to de Delley and McLean’s other relatives.

Baker’s defenders include Chris Summerville, executive director of the Manitoba Schizophrenia Society, who has met and worked with him over the years.

“He is no longer a violent person,” Summerville said. “I will say, yes, he absolutely understands that he has to (take his medication) and has a desire to live a responsible, moral life and never succumb to psychotic episodes and not to hurt anybody ever again.”

Law abiding gun owner uses his legal gun to prevent armed robber from murdering innocent people

There’s a video at the link where they interview this brave hero, but it’s not a YouTube video, so I can’t imbed it. But here’s a picture of this awesome guy from his interview:

Armed Citizen Who Threw Wallet to Distracted Suspect: ‘That’s When I Lit Him Up’

January 29, 2017

An armed citizen, who was in Detroit’s E&S Carry Out Shrimp Shack during an alleged robbery, says he threw his wallet on the floor, and when the robbery suspect looked away to retrieve it, the citizen shot him.
The incident occurred around 5:45 p.m. on January 21.

According to ClickonDetroit.com, the armed citizen is a concealed carry permit holder going only by “Dennis” to protect his privacy. He was in the Shrimp Shack with his girlfriend, Latanya, when an alleged armed robbery suspect came in and ordered everyone to hand over their “cash.” Dennis and his girlfriend “and another customer started throwing their money and wallets on the floor.”

The suspect allegedly pointed his gun at Latanya’s face but was distracted by the wallets on the floor and looked away to pick them up. Dennis used the brief distraction as an opportunity to draw his own gun and shoot the suspect in the stomach.

Dennis said, “When I saw he had the gun in her face, and I threw my wallet down and keys, he turned to look and get the money, that’s when I lit him up.” He then “kicked the robber’s gun away” and tended to the wounded suspect until first responders arrived.

Following the incident, Dennis made clear that he did not have a specific plan to distract the suspect, but he took advantage of the situation when the distraction occurred. He added, “Even though you give them everything, they’ll still shoot you, and I wasn’t going out like that.”

WWJ reports that Detroit police said Dennis will face no charges for his actions; he “acted in self-defense.”

Among the many things President Obama will be handing off to his successor this week: stubborn wars in three separate countries.

Obama came to office eight years ago vowing to end U.S. military interventions in Iraq and Afghanistan. Yet President-elect Trump stands to inherit the nation’s longest war ever in Afghanistan, as well as renewed fighting in Iraq that has spread to Syria.

The outgoing president was reminded of the persistence of those wars at the pomp-filled farewell ceremony the Pentagon put on for him him earlier this month at a nearby military base.

“Mr. President, we’ve been at war throughout your tenure,” said Gen. Joesph Dunford, chosen by Obama in 2015 to be chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. “That’s a period longer than any other American president.”

That’s right: Obama is the first president to serve eight years and preside over American wars during every single day of his tenure.
