Dutch MPs vote to ban burqas from being worn in public places

Dutch MPs on Tuesday voted overwhelmingly to ban the Islamic full-face burqa from some public places such as schools and hospitals, the latest such move in a European country.

"The law is adopted," said the speaker of the lower house of parliament, Khadija Arib, referring to legislation which will also ban burqas, and face coverings just with eye-slits, from public transport.

The motion "to ban all clothing which completely covers the face" from government buildings was approved by 132 members in the 150-seat house, including Prime Minister Mark Rutte's ruling Liberal-Labour coalition.

The legislation must now go before the Senate for approval before becoming law. It follows similar bans imposed in France and Belgium, and comes amid rising tensions in Europe with Islamic communities.

The Dutch cabinet had approved the plan in mid-2015, but decided not to go as far as banning wearing burqas on the streets.


Trumpocalypse, engineered chaos and the children of the new world order

If you ask the average American how they feel about the times in which we live chances are they are sensing something is wrong. Depending on who you ask, of course, you'll get different reasons but most people are probably aware of the demonstrations and riots against Donald Trump, a tension and unrest that is promising to get more intense as we get closer to Inauguration on January 20, 2017. This tension, anger and unrest manifesting itself across the country is not only engineered as I've been saying for a long time now, but those who are obeying the will of George Soros and those funded by him, (Moveon.org, Michael Moore etc), who are carrying out the agenda at play are the manifestation of what I consider to be the children of the new world order. I was reluctant at first to put this information out because many of the youth involved in the recent protests have no idea what's really happening and they wouldn't intentionally cooperate with the ruling elite's plan but I'm now compelled to say it how I see it. But before I discuss why I feel these protesters are a new brand and breed of minds which are the direct offspring of the ruling elites mass mind control and future world order, let's first take a good look at the actual election results that led to the justification for the recent chaos.

Since the Donald Trump victory over Hillary Clinton seen here where Trump defeated Clinton with 290 electoral votes to Hillary's 232, anger and mayhem on the part of the Hillary supporting left has ensued. But why? As indicated by the map, this vote count doesn't include the final 16 electoral votes that Trump will gain in Michigan barring a reversal of the current count. That will officially make the final voting results Trump 306 Hillary 232. And while we're at it, here's the election result from 2008 when Obama won the election because of his 365 electoral votes to John McCain's 173. And here's the election results from 2012 where again, Obama defeated Mitt Romney with 332 electoral votes to Romney's 206.

So what do all three of these election results have in common? They all follow the same rules. In all three, the candidate that won, won because (not in spite of) that candidate received more electoral votes (270 or more to be exact) than his opponent. And so again I'm left wondering why are these Hillary supporting "anti-Trump" demonstrators so angry? And, what agenda is at play?


Texas Republican chooses to resign from Electoral College rather than cast ballot for Trump

More than 100 people gather in Dallas on Nov. 9, the day after US elections, to listen to speakers as they protest President-elect Donald Trump's victory.
A Texas Republican announced over the weekend that he plans to resign his post as a member of the Electoral College rather than cast a ballot for US President-elect Donald Trump, a man he deems "not biblically qualified for office."

Citing his Christian religion and his understanding of representative democracy, Art Sisneros wrote in a blog post that he could neither vote for Mr. Trump nor break his promise to do so by voting for anyone else. Texas does not require its 38 electors to vote in accordance with the state's presidential election results, but Mr. Sisneros says he made a pledge to the Texas GOP that his vote next month in Austin would follow the will of the general public.

"The reality is Trump will be our President, no matter what my decision is," Sisneros wrote. "Since I can't in good conscience vote for Donald Trump, and yet have sinfully made a pledge that I would, the best option I see at this time is to resign my position as an Elector."


Chief rabbi rules that Jewish spouses who lost marriage certificate in wildfires cannot live together

A man checks the damage to a house during a wildfire, in the communal settlement of Nataf, near Jerusalem November 23, 2016.
It turns out the devastation from the recent wildfires that forced 80,000 Israelis to flee their homes wasn't enough - now they're being told by a chief rabbi that spouses whose marriage contract suffered damage can't live under the same roof.

The ruling was outlined in a statement which stipulates that no cohabitation between the married couple can take place until a new contract - or ketubah - has been drawn up.

Mordechai Abramovsky, chief rabbi of Zichron Yaakov, also holds dominion over marriage licenses in Haifa.

According to Jewish law, only a marriage certificate permits a couple to live under one roof - a rule that dates back to the Talmudic era, and was put in place to protect women's rights in marriage. Failure to possess one was equated with being in an extramarital relationship.

But other national chief rabbis quickly moved to contradict Abramovsky, according to the Jerusalem Post, stating that a couple who suffered the loss of their home in the blaze should indeed get a new certificate, but not at the cost of having to live apart.


Australia: Prison operator receives $11K bonus for each female inmate avoiding reoffending for 2yrs

© RT.com
A pilot program in Australia will see a state government pay the operator of a private women's prison a bonus for every convict who manages to keep a clean record for two years after being released. The program is focused on Western Australia's newest women's prison, which is one of three private prisons in the state and is run by international conglomerate Sodexo. The company has a two-decade record of providing detention services for the UK government.

The operator will receive 15,000 Australian dollars (US$11,000) for every inmate who stays on the right side of the law for two years after release, provided that the number of such women is above a specified level. At present, a third of all women prisoners in Australia end up re-offending.

According to Rebecca Hamilton, director of strategic policy at Western Australia's Department of Corrective Services, the initiative may solve overcrowding issues in the state penitentiary. "We've had issues with women sleeping on the floor, but rather than just put more beds in the system, we thought this was the opportunity for us to actually go for broke and get something in place based on all of the good research that's out there about what makes a difference, particularly for women," Hamilton tells the ABC.

Comment: When business-as-usual doesn't work, bribe them. Bribe them well. Pretty sure the prisoners would rather have had the beds.


UK: Apparently some religious beliefs are "not offensive"

Employers should stop worrying about offending people of other religious beliefs and allow their staff to celebrate Christmas, an independent government body has said. The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) said everyone had the right to freedom of religion and people's faiths should not be suppressed through fear of offending.

EHRC chairman David Isaac also warned that employers could provoke resentment by trying to be politically correct. "Freedom of religion is a fundamental human right and shouldn't be suppressed through fear of offending. Lots of employers have now become really worried about doing anything discriminatory regarding their Muslim or Jewish staff," he said.

Isaac said laws had been misinterpreted as bosses became over-sensitive about political correctness. Speaking to the Sunday Times, Isaac added: "It is OK to hold a party and send Christmas cards. Most Muslims and Jews that I know adhere to their own religious beliefs of course, but to some extent acknowledge that Christmas happens and to some extent, with a small 'c', celebrate it." Isaac warned that some employers were driven to "extreme and disproportionate behavior" which "could produce some sort of resentment about special treatment."

Some workplaces in the UK refer to the Christmas period as "winter holidays" out of fear that linking the season to Christianity could offend people. Isaac's comments come after the government's integration tsar Dame Louise Casey said in September she had met a "well-meaning white manager" who called a Christmas tree erected in a community center a "festive tree."

Comment: The sensitizing hype about 'fear of offending' keeps the Muslim-Christian 'conflict' front and center, constantly widens the divide between neighbors and co-workers...according to plan. We should not even need an 'Equality and Human Rights Commission.'

A US employee at Misawa base in Aomori prefecture, Japan, is being accused of slashing a local woman with a knife and reportedly injuring her face, Japanese media report. She has been taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

According to Japanese media, the incident took place on base premises at 2 a.m. local time. The victim is 50 years old and an employee at the base's accommodation facility. Japanese TV reported that the man slashed her face.

He has been taken into US custody, according to the Japanese Defense Ministry's Tohoku Bureau. His identity and rank are not being disclosed at this time, according to Kyodo, who were among the first to report on the incident.

Aomori prefecture is situated on the northern tip of mainland Japan, just south of the island of Hokkaido. American troops have been stationed in Japan since its occupation during World War II. The contingent numbers roughly 50,000 troops, with the small Okinawa Island hosting the largest portion of the force.

Many local citizens complain of problems associated with the Americans, including crimes, noise pollution from military transport and environmental damage. Civil action groups regularly stage protest in front of the US military sites on the island.


Homeless lifestyle to counter terrorism activities in Moscow

Moscow's homeless
Homeless people in Moscow will be taught how to counter terrorism and other threats to Russia's national security, a charity group said.

Due to their lifestyle, the homeless have an opportunity to timely detect suspicious people or objects and report them to the police, Ilya Kuskov, the head of the Assistant and Patron charity, told the m24.ru website.

Such alertness will allow them to save not only their own lives, but also those of other people
, he added.

"A similar project was carried out recently in [the Siberian city of] Tyumen. We found this idea of applying it to Moscow interesting," Kuskov said.

The homeless will be lectured on counter terrorism activities during their stay in special shelters in the capital. The tutors will explain them how to identifying various explosive devices and where to report in case of discovering one. A legal specialist will be on hand to help the homeless people with more complicated terminology.


Ohio State knife attacker identified as Somali refugee - police still searching for motive as ISIS claims responsibility

Police keep the roads closed around Watts Hall following an attack on the campus of the Ohio State University on November 28, 2016 in Columbus, Ohio
The deceased suspect in the car-and-knife attack on Ohio State University in Columbus has been identified. The college-aged man of Somali descent injured 11 when he crashed his car into a group of people then attacked them with a butcher knife.

The incident began when a car rammed into people outside of Watts Hall around 9:40am local time. The driver got out of the car, armed with a butcher knife and began attacking the group, OSU officials said in an afternoon press conference.

Officials identified the suspect as OSU student Abdul Razak Ali Artan. He was a legal permanent resident from Somalia, according to NBC News' Tom Winter.

There are conflicting reports about his age, with news outlets saying he is anywhere from 18 to 20 years old.

Authorities believe they have found Artan's Facebook profile, where they say he posted a "declaration" that expressed grievances over attacks on Muslims, ABC News reported.

Comment: More on the Facebook post:
It was a picture of a document on a Dell computer screen with the warning: "Screenshot this before it gets deleted." Below that was a jumbled screed in which the author railed about the treatment of Muslims around the world.

It vented anger at the United States, cited the persecution of Rohingya Muslims in Burma and name-checked radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, calling him a "hero."

There was no specific threat of violence but a suggestion that the U.S. could stop "lone wolf attacks" by making peace with "dawla in al sham," an outdated name for ISIS. He wrote that he had reached "a boiling point" and included a bombastic vow to "kill a billion infidels" to save a single Muslim.

"By Allah, we will not let you sleep unless you give peace to the Muslims. You will not celebrate or enjoy any holiday," the post reads.

The rant was not signed but it was posted just before police say Artan rammed a relative's car into a small crowd of OSU students and staff and then jumped up with a butcher knife, slashing at them.
Artan attended Columbus State Community College, graduating cum laude in May 2016 with a two-year associate's degree. Video from the graduation ceremony shows him beaming as he collects his diploma in cap and gown.

Comment: Update: ISIS has claimed responsibility through their AMAQ "news agency":
Islamic State has claimed responsibility for a car-and-knife attack at Ohio State University in Columbus that injured 11 people and left the suspect dead. The claim was made through the group's news agency.

The attack in the state of Ohio "is a soldier of the Islamic State and carried out the operation in response to appeals targeting nationals of coalition countries," a security source told AMAQ, the news agency of Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL).

The FBI and other law enforcement agencies investigating Monday morning's incident have not announced any links between the deceased suspect, identified as OSU student Abdul Razak Ali Artan, and the terrorist group in the Middle East.
In other words, they're saying they had no direct influence over Artan, merely that he "answered the call". Whether this is true or not remains to be seen.
