Cruz Campaign Responds to Donald Trump: ‘Lets Not Forget Who Whipped Who in Iowa’

Donald Trump, Ted Cruz
The campaign of Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is hitting back at Donald Trump, after Trump repeated an offensive remark, by reminding Trump not to “forget who whipped who in Iowa.” At a Trump rally on Monday, a woman in the crowd shouted that Cruz was, “a pussy.” “She just said a terrible thing,” Trump said while smirking. “You know what she said? Shout it out,” Trump told the woman. “Okay, you’re not allowed to say and I never expect to hear that from you again,” Trump said. “I never expect to hear that from you again! She said: ‘He’s a pussy.’ That’s terrible.” The crowd cheered and Trump threw his hands up in the air. Cruz’s Communications Director responded on Twitter by saying that Trump is, “turning the campaign into the latest episode of a reality show but let’s not forget who whipped who in Iowa.” .@realDonaldTrump turning the campaign into the latest episode of a reality show but let’s not forget who whipped who in Iowa. — Rick Tyler (@rickwtyler) February 9, 2016

German Gun Ownership SKYROCKETS To 301,000 In Response To Migrant Crisis

german gun ownership
The number of licences for ‘small weapons’ in Germany rose by 21,000 over the month of January, pushing the total number of papers held across the Federal Republic to 301,000. The declaration of small weapon licences comes after a request by a Green Party member of parliament, who criticised German citizens’ decisions to invest in self defence as provocative. Green politician, security committee member, and former policewoman Irene Mihalic acknowledged the change was because of growing insecurity felt by the Germany people, reports Frankfurter Allgemeine, and said: “Imagine that during major event like a carnival, if people acted rashly a weapon might only provoke chaos and violence… when more and more people carry weapons, it is more likely to contribute to escalation than calm situations”. The small arms licences being issued now in such great number only cover firearms such as blank firing pistols, and deterrent self-defence pistols. Rather than firing live shells, the gas guns which are indistinguishable from from their live-firing equivalents use an explosive propellant to fire a concentrated cloud of CS gas at an attacker. Once a licence has been acquired, there is no limit or checks on the acquisitions of these small guns, a “loophole” Ms. Mihalic has

“Gold’s Fundamentals and Technicals Look Better and Better”

WaPo Joins War on Catholic Church over Zika and Abortion

AP Photo/Felipe Dana
The beltway bastion of mainstream media liberalism, the Washington Post, has teamed up with the abortion industry to beat up the Catholic Church for its opposition to abortion as a means of addressing the Zika virus outbreak in Latin America. Decrying what it calls the Church’s “entrenched opposition” to relaxing abortion laws, the Post abandoned all pretense of objectivity in its lengthy screed in support of abortion as a means to tackle the Zika crisis. Nowhere in the nearly 1,500-word article does the Post bother to comment on the numerous problems with this approach, in its zeal to back up the abortion lobby. The article does, of course, trot out Planned Parenthood’s fully discredited argument that legislation restricting abortion causes a rise in dangerous, “back-alley abortions.” As has been shown in the case of the United States, making abortion legal resulted in no perceptible decrease in female mortality due to complications in abortion. Moreover, by this logic, since outlawing terrorism results in the use of dangerous, homemade bombs, states should legalize it and supply them with effective, professional explosives. The Post claims that “Brazil’s government blames the virus for a sharp increase in reports of children born with undersize heads, a

Dorito Fans Blast NARAL Abortion Bullies: Human Fetus Not a ‘Lobster’

fetus in womb AP
After the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) sent out a series of angry tweets during the Super Bowl, attacking with special animus a Doritos commercial for “humanizing the fetus,” the abortion group received a taste of its own medicine as a flurry of tweets on the group’s own account taunted NARAL while defending Frito-Lay. The offending Doritos ad in question featured a pregnant woman and her husband in a hospital room as a kindly female doctor conducts an ultrasound. The trouble starts when the doctor smiles and says: “And there’s your beautiful baby,” forgetting that the NARAL-approved language is “fetus” and not “baby.” The commercial proceeds to show the baby in the ultrasound reacting to the movement of a Doritos chip by moving its body in response to movement of the chip. The mother finally throws the chip away, at which point the baby exits the womb in pursuit as everybody shrieks. All of this was too much for NARAL to take, and the group sent out an irate tweet accusing Frito-Lay of employing an “antichoice” tactic of “humanizing fetuses.” #NotBuyingIt – that @Doritos ad using #antichoice tactic of humanizing fetuses & sexist tropes of dads as clueless &

‘Islamic State Commander’ Found Living As Refugee In Rural German Village

A police car stands outside a refugee shelter on February 4, 2016 in Attendorn after a raid during which a suspect was arrested.
In the latest of a series of raids, German police have searched two homes in a rural village after a television channel interviewed a suspected Islamic State commander living there as a refugee. Sankt Johann is a small village in the south west German state, Rhineland-Palatinate. Something of a rural idyll, its 800 residents live between vineyards in the shadow of a 14th century Gothic church. And yet, as SPIEGEL TV reports, this weekend it was the scene of police raids on two Islamic State-linked suspects living in refugee housing. Prosecutors’ office spokesman Michael Neuhaus said the two men targeted by the operation are “suspected of taking part in the Syrian civil war as members of a foreign terrorist organisation”. He said there were “no immediate indications that a concrete attack was planned” but declined to give any further details. Two houses in the village are used to house Syrian refugees, but among the opponents of the Assad regime living there SPIEGEL TV tracked down a suspected commander of the Islamic State terror group after tip offs from other Syrian activists. They had identified him as a man called Bassam, a notorious commander said to be responsible for the deaths of dozens of people. A 32-year-old man, he allegedly fought in the

Sanders Flirts With History in Quest to be First Jewish Victor in US primary

The Jerusalem Post reports: Nashua, New Hampshire – Bernie Sanders is not afraid of adopting labels controversial in American politics. On the contrary, he has embraced them, self-identifying as a socialist and revolutionary to the surprise and joy of legions of young and disaffected voters nationwide. And yet one identifier the Independent senator from Vermont has shed throughout his insurgent presidential campaign is precisely the one that will make his expected New Hampshire victory historic: Sanders is poised to become the first Jew ever to win a US presidential nominating contest. Over the weekend, Sanders – who has long distanced himself from organized religion – characterized himself as both “religious” and “spiritual” at a town hall hosted by CNN.

Germany Can Only Absorb 350,000 Migrants A Year Despite 1.5 Million Influx

Migrants
A senior manager of Germany’s Federal Employment Agency (BA) has said there is only limited capacity for the national job market to absorb new migrants, and it is already significantly overstretched. Speaking to a club meeting of Hamburg business journalists, BA board member and former left-wing political senator Detlef Scheele said the job market could absorb 350,000 new working age migrants a year — half of the 700,000 new jobs created in total annually. Yet over 1.5 million migrants arrived in Germany last year, with 1.1 million registering for asylum. Mr. Scheele’s comments support, and may even go further than the figures seen in a leaked Federal document from 2015, which admitted the government was expecting at least new 400,000 welfare claimants last year from the migrant crisis. The BA October migration estimate paper forecasted Germany was to receive over one million unskilled migrants that year. It said 80 per cent of arrivals were under the age of 45 and have no qualifications at all, not even to high-school level. Just eight per cent had any kind of academic qualification such as a university degree. The agency estimated catering for the new claimants would cost at least €855 million in 2016. Dealing with the

Stopping Islamic Immigration Is a Matter of Survival

In April last year, the renowned nonpartisan Pew Research Center released a report on the future growth of world religions. The content was shocking. The report states that, if current trends continue, Islam will almost equal Christianity by 2050. While the world’s population is expected to rise by 35% until the middle of this century, Islam will grow with a staggering 73%.
