Australian Couple Travels Through Asia To ‘Break Stigma’ Of Countries Getting A ‘Bad Rap.’ They’re Reportedly In Jail In Iran.

An Australian couple traveling through Asia who wanted to “break the stigma around travelling to countries which get a bad wrap [sic] in the media,” reportedly found out the hard way that some countries may well deserve the reputation they have: the couple was reportedly arrested 10 weeks ago in Iran.

Jolie King, who has dual U.K. and Australian nationality, and Mark Firkin, have over 20,000 followers on Instagram and YouTube, where they document their travels. According to the BBC, the couple was traveling through Asia to Great Britain, starting in 2017. The pair had a drone they used to take footage of the dozen countries through which they were passing.

According to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, that drone landed them behind bars in Iran 10 weeks ago. “The pair has been held as prisoners for about 10 weeks after being arrested for reportedly flying a drone without a permit,” ABC reports.

The BBC reports that the couple is “believed to be being held in Tehran’s Evin prison.”

Another British-Australian woman, reportedly a University of Cambridge-educated scholar, has been jailed for 10 years in Iran, according to the BBC.

Australian Foreign Minister Marise Payne said she spoke to the Iranian government about all three people last week. “Since they were detained, the Australian Government has been pressing the Iranian Government for their release,” said Payne. “I have communicated with my Iranian counterpart, Foreign Minister Zarif, many times about these cases, including through face-to-face face meetings. We met as recently as last week.”

“Our biggest motivation … is to hopefully inspire anyone wanting to travel, and also try to break the stigma around travelling to countries which get a bad wrap [sic] in the media,” King and Firkin had written about their travels.

In July, Australia announced that it would join the U.S. and the U.K. as they monitored the Strait of Hormuz. Reported Iranian provocations involving other nations’ ships have been rampant near the Strait in recent months.

The BBC reported that U.K. Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab met the Iranian ambassador and “raised serious concerns about the number of dual national citizens detained by Iran and their conditions of detention,” according to the Foreign Office.

The story of King and Firkin bears similarities to another story reported by The Daily Wire in August 2018 in which a “young American couple who took a year-long bike trip around the world, believing that evil was a make-believe concept, took a fatal route in Tajikistan near the Afghan border, where alleged ISIS terrorists stabbed them to death. Jay Austin and Lauren Geoghegan, 29, quit their jobs last year in order to make their trip.”

Austin had written:

You watch the news and you read the papers and you’re led to believe that the world is a big, scary place. People, the narrative goes, are not to be trusted. People are bad. People are evil. People are axe murderers and monsters and worse.

I don’t buy it. Evil is a make-believe concept we’ve invented to deal with the complexities of fellow humans holding values and beliefs and perspectives different than our own—it’s easier to dismiss an opinion as abhorrent than strive to understand it. Badness exists, sure, but even that’s quite rare. By and large, humans are kind. Self-interested sometimes, myopic sometimes, but kind. Generous and wonderful and kind. No greater revelation has come from our journey than this.

In June 2019, the man who was the alleged ringleader in the attack on Austin and Geohegan was asked if he interacted with the tourists at the gas station they stopped at just prior to the attack, Hussein Abdusamadov replied,“Yes. I talked to them. I asked them where they were from. I asked them what nationalities they were and they told me they were Americans … They said they were Americans and laughed.” He concluded, “Americans had to be killed.” 

 

Unable to Promote Anti-Israel Agenda, Rashida Tlaib Rejects Visit to Her Grandma in West Bank

The state of Israel called Rashida Tlaib’s bluff, and her tremendous hypocrisy has been exposed as a result.

By Shane Trejo

After Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) were barred from entering the state of Israel yesterday due to their anti-Semitic comments and positions, Tlaib immediately played the victim card as she claimed heartbreak over not being able to see her beloved grandmother.

Screen Shot 2019-08-16 at 2.56.23 PM

Israel showed compassion following her cries, and reversed their decision, allowing Tlaib entry in order to visit her grandmother as long as she did not proselytize her anti-Israel beliefs while making her visit.

However, Tlaib quickly backtracked and refused go to on the trip, angry that she would be unable to promote her pro-Palestine political agenda while in attendance.

Israel interior minister Aryeh Deri skewered her in a Tweet as a result:

However, it was revealed that Israel simply granted Tlaib’s written request to Deri that she made just a day ago:

Tlaib’s hypocrisy is on full display, as she has proven that she was using her familial ties as a way to garner sympathy. Israel called her bluff, and the socialist legislator has never looked more foolish as a result. This entire situation has been another loss for “the Squad,” and another victory for President Donald Trump and the Republican Party.

Man stabbed outside Home Office in London, armed police called in

Screen Shot 2019-08-15 at 2.22.30 PM

A stabbing outside the Home Office in London has left one person with facial injuries. The victim was initially said to be in a life-threatening condition. One man has been arrested.

Police were called to Marsham Street in the English capital, with officers responding to a report of a stabbing near Home Office headquarters. First responders found a man with knife wounds, the Met Police said.

Screen Shot 2019-08-15 at 2.24.42 PM

Ambulances rushed to the scene to treat the victim whose injuries were initially described as “life-threatening.” Medics said later that the condition of the man had improved.

Police said that one man was arrested and taken to a nearby station “on suspicion of grievous bodily harm.”

Screen Shot 2019-08-15 at 2.26.24 PM

A witness said he saw a “bloody tissue in the entrance hall and police everywhere.” People were ordered not to leave the building.

The stabbed man was reportedly a member of staff from the Home Office. The witnesses said he made his way back to the building after the attack.

Police said they were “keeping an open mind” as to whether or not the incident was terrorism-related.

AMAZING: Democrat Politician Ibraheem Samirah Who Screamed at Trump About His Deported Father – Forgets to Mention His Ties to Hamas

Democrat Delegate Ibraheem Samirah stood and screamed at President Trump today during his historic Jamestown speech.

By Jim Hoft – JULY 30, 2019

Ibraheem held up a sign that says, “Reunite my family.”

President Trump was interrupted by a Democrat member of Virginia’s House of Delegates during a speech Tuesday marking the 400th anniversary of the first meeting of the Virginia legislature in Jamestown in 1619–the first representative legislative assembly in the Western Hemisphere.

Democrat Ibraheem Samirah stood near the front of the stage facing the audience, holding several signs strung together and yelling, “Mr. President, you can’t send us back, Virginia is our home!”  Supporters of the President booed and chanted, “Trump! Trump! Trump!”

The messages on the signs read, “Go Back to Your Corrupted Home”, “Deport Hate” and “Reunite My Family And All Shattered by Systemic Discrimination”.

Samirah, elected earlier this year at age 27 in a special election to represent the Northern Virginia town of Herndon, describes himself on Twitter as: “Dentist. Activist-Organizer. Representing the people of the 86th district as the youngest Virginia State Delegate & youngest American Muslim legislator anywhere.”

Note: During the campaign Samirah released a statement apologizing to his Jewish supporters for comments he made on Facebook as a college student.

Ibraheem interrupted the president to scream about his deported Palestinian father.

Here’s the rest of the story…
Ibraheem’s father Sabri Samirah was refused entry into the United States after he left America to visit his parents in 2002.

At the time Samirah was affiliated with several Islamic organizations in the south Chicago suburbs and was outspoken critic of Israel.

And Sabri Samirah worked with Islamic organizations that laundered money for Hamas terrorists.

Via The Chicago Tribune:

Samirah was a leader in the local Muslim community and worked with the now-defunct Islamic Association for Palestine and American Middle Eastern League for Palestine, which federal investigators alleged laundered money for Hamas. He also was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood in Jordan.

He applied for legal residency several times under various provisions of immigration law, and an attempt at a green card was pending in December 2002 when he traveled to Jordan to see his parents.

For that journey, Samirah was granted “advance parole,” or permission given to an immigrant to leave the country. While on his way back from Jordan in January 2003, he was stopped at a pre-inspection station in Ireland and told he had been deemed a “national security risk” by the United States and that his advance parole had been revoked. He was put in an Irish jail overnight, sent back to Jordan and told he was not allowed to re-enter the U.S.

The Obama administration let Ibraheem back in the US in 2014.

Democrat Ibraheem Samirah forgot to put that on his protest poster today in Jamestown.

TWO SOMALI REFUGEES ARRESTED FOR PLANNING ISIS ATTACK INSIDE U.S.

Two Somali Refugees Arrested For Planning ISIS Attack Inside U.S.

FBI apprehends terrorists as they tried to board flight at Tucson International Airport

JULY 30, 2019

Two Somali refugees were arrested after the FBI uncovered a plot for them to join ISIS abroad or conduct an attack inside the United States.

Screen Shot 2019-07-30 at 10.36.22 AM

“Ahmed Mahad Mohamed and Abdi Yemani Hussein, were arrested for conspiring to provide material support and resources to ISIS, a designated foreign terrorist organization,” reports the DOJ.

Mohamed had obtained lawful permanent residency within the U.S. and Hussein remained a refugee.

The suspects had been in communication with an undercover FBI agent whom they thought was an ISIS supporter and had purchased airline tickets to travel to Egypt, with the intention to travel on to Sinai and join ISIS.

If they were unable to travel for any reason, the pair had planned to carry out an attack inside the United States.

FBI agents arrested the suspects right before they tried to board a flight at Tucson International Airport in Arizona.

President Trump tweeted about the arrests this morning, commenting, “Somali refugees arrested in Tucson on way to Egypt. They were in touch with an agent posing as a terrorist. One of them stated, “The best wake up call is Islamic State to get victory or another 9/11.” Get smart people!”

Somali Socialist Ilhan Omar Endorses Violent Attack Against Rand Paul on Twitter

This came days after Paul called out Omar for her lack of patriotism.

By Shane Trejo

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has been frequently called a terrorist sympathizer for her strange remarks about Al Qaeda, her request for leniency for an ISIS recruit, and other troubling behavior, but now she has outright endorsed violence against a sitting government official on her Twitter account.

Donald Trump Jr. pointed to an Omar re-tweet of unhinged anti-Trump comedian Tom Arnold from earlier today. The washed-up former husband of Roseanne Barr tweeted in celebration of the assault against Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) outside of his own home in 2017.

Screen Shot 2019-07-29 at 2.50.28 PM

Paul was attacked by socialist Democrat Rene Boucher in an attack that broke the Kentucky Senator’s ribs and bruised his lung. Boucher had to pay up $580,000 in a civil suit and was sentenced to 30 days in federal prison for his vicious actions against Paul.

Omar’s retweet comes days after Paul called the bitter refugee out for her socialist anti-American beliefs, saying that he would pay for her ticket back to Somalia if it meant giving her an appreciation for the liberties that the United States provides to her.

“I’ve met people who have come here from behind the Iron Curtain,” Paul told Breitbart News last week. “They got away from communism, they’re some of the best Americans we have, because they really appreciate how great our country is, and then I hear Representative Omar say America is a terrible place.”

“Well, she came here and we fed her, we clothed her, she got welfare, she got [schooling], she got healthcare, and then, lo and behold, she has the honor of actually winning a seat in Congress, and she says we’re a terrible country? I think that’s about as ungrateful as you can get,” he added.

“And so — I’m willing to contribute to buy her a ticket to go visit Somalia, and I think she can look and maybe learn a little bit about the disaster that is Somalia — that has no capitalism, has no God-given rights guaranteed in a constitution, and has about seven different tribes that have been fighting each other for the last 40 years,” Paul explained.

After Omar’s apparent endorsement of domestic terrorism against Paul, perhaps it should be a one-way ticket back to her country of origin as she clearly does not appreciate or understand the Bill of Rights and Constitution.

Ilhan Omar’s Father and Other Somalian War Crimes Perpetrators Now Living Illegally in the US

By Joe Hoft

Far Left Communist Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar’s father and other Somalian war crimes perpetrators are currently living illegally in the United States.

No wonder she supports communists, terrorists and illegal aliens!

The Gateway Pundit has obtained information that is damning for Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar.

Omar’s father, Nur Omar Mohamed (aka Nur Said Elmi Mohamed), is connected to the former dictator in Somalia, Said Barre.  Nur and other former Barre accomplices are living in the US illegally.

Omar’s father Mohamed, is living in the US.  He and other Somalians like Yusuf Abdi Ali, who killed thousands for Barre, escaped to the West and were not vetted properly before entering the country.  Barre was a dictator and was connected to Cuban dictator Fidel Castro.

Screen Shot 2019-07-16 at 10.11.33 AM

Ali is a convicted war criminal who did the killing himself.  Ali has been located in the US working as security at Dulles International Airport and driving for Uber in 2019.  He reportedly lived at one time in Alexandria, Virginia.  Ali was a Colonel in the Somalian Army’s 5th Mechanized Brigade in 1987 and was a graduate of the Pentegon’s Program for Foreign Officers in 1986.  He’s also a war criminal in response to his actions in Somalia.

Screen Shot 2019-07-16 at 10.12.41 AM

Nur, Representative Omar’s father, appears to have been a party propagandist under the dictator and was responsible for ‘ideological’ aspects of the Red-Green revolution.  (He worked for the Marxist/Stalinist regime under dictator Baare as a teacher of teachers.) This could have included providing the ideological/political justification for the massacres of the late eighties.

It is not a secret that Ilhan Omar’s father illegally entered the United States.

Screen Shot 2019-07-16 at 10.14.36 AM

The Nur family was well connected in the country led by the Marxist regime.  Young Omar went to kindergarten at age four, their family lived in a secure compound in Mogadishu.  When the regime was overtaken, the family caught a plane to escape the country.  The average GDP per capita in Somalia was only $187 dollars in 2010 twenty years after they fled the country when the regime fell. Obviously, Nur’s family was a privileged family.

Screen Shot 2019-07-16 at 10.15.41 AM

According to a 2016 article on Omar, when the Marxist regime was being overtaken the secure compound that the family lived in was under attack by 20 armed men, somehow the family escaped.  It is not clear how.  Either the family had superior armed guards within their compound or they bribed the attackers and sent them on their way (or the story is a complete fabrication).

Screen Shot 2019-07-16 at 10.16.30 AM

Both Ali and Nur escaped Somalia after the fall of Barre.  Because they were no longer safe there and would have been put on trial and shot if caught, they exited the country. Both ended up in the US and both hid the fact that they worked for a totalitarian regime. Both lied on their Form N-400, Application for Naturalization about their communist background.  (They had to or they wouldn’t be here.)

As you can see below:

The Immigration and Nationality Act (I.N.A.) contains a prohibition on naturalization for anyone involved, within the last ten years, with a group that advocates or teaches opposition to all organized government; or involved with the Communist Party or any other totalitarian party of the U.S. or any foreign state; or who advocates world communism or totalitarian dictatorship even without formal group membership. (See I.N.A. Section 313).”

Both Nur and Yusuf should be disqualified from permanent US residency and a revocation of their US citizenship should take place.

Representative Omar reportedly lied after she married her brother in order to assist him in obtaining US citizenship.

This would obviously disqualify Omar and her brother from legal citizenship.

It looks like illegal citizenship is all in the family for Omar and her family.  Like father, like daughter (like son).

Gang of 10-Year-Old Migrants Terrorizing Locals, Threatening to Rape

 

CAP

By Ben Warren

A gang of migrant children aged eight to 12 have been terrorizing locals in Grums, Sweden with taunts, physical assaults, and even rape threats.

Kids are returning home bloody from beatings and more and more parents are not letting their children play alone outside.

“They have thrown rocks or beaten [other kids] with sheet metal pipes and sticks so children started to bleed,” said a resident. “The worst thing was that a child was strangled and received marks.”

“But it is also about sexual threats: ‘I will rape you,’ they say.”

Police arrived to asses the situation after the tenant association contacted them; one officer said he had never seen anything like this.

“I have never experienced that such small children do such things,” said officer Hynynen. “They have poured garbage into the mailbox of people, jerked up flowers and threatened both children and adults sexually.”

“The residents are afraid.”

The gang’s parents – being new arrivals themselves – don’t speak Swedish, complicating social service’s efforts to stop further attacks.

“We will meet the parents of these children and try to explain to them what their children are doing,” added Hynynen. “We really hope, for the sake of peace, that this will end.”

The tenant association – as well as its denizens – are concerned with resolving the crisis to avoid a potential rise in xenophobia amongst Swedes, according to their website.

“We want to be able to live here together and then this must be resolved,” said a tenant in unison with the apartment owners. “You really do not want to start thinking in paths like ‘we and them’ but this is how it has now become and if we do not get help, this will be stepped up.”

 

ADL: Google Search ‘Redirect’ Program Built to Fight ISIS Will Now Be Used On Americans

By Chris Menahan

Google-funded Moonshot CVE is working together with the Anti-Defamation League and the Google Jigsaw-partnered Gen Next Foundation to “redirect” Google searches related to “extremist narratives” — such as the idea that there is a “‘European’ identity” that is “under threat” — the president of the ADL announced Monday. 

ADL head Jonathan Greenblatt wrote in a statement:

[T]he Anti-Defamation League is partnering with Moonshot CVE and the Gen Next Foundation to counter white supremacist and jihadist activity online. The program, dubbed the Redirect Method, will use advertising to provide individuals who search Google for violent extremist material with content that exposes the falsehoods of extremist narratives, providing searchers the choice of an off-ramp to radicalization.

Targeting content potential extremists search for — rather than focusing, for example, on what they post to social media — can directly address their harmful online behavior and desires. By providing them with credible sources, we hope to decrease the impact of extremist content and increase the spread of the truth, such as, there is no one “European” identity that is under threat. In this way, we speak directly to those who may be at risk of radicalization, and we incentivize re-thinking those ideologies with accurate information.

Greenblatt went on to explain how Moonshot/Google’s program built to fight ISIS is now going to be used on Americans.

Moonshot and Google previously launched a Redirect Method program for ISIS-related searches, which found that those who searched for ISIS content were highly likely to engage with the more constructive, non-violent content that was offered. This led to several thousand views of constructive materials in place of searches related to Islamist extremism. Our new project builds on this success while pulling from ADL’s subject matter expertise in extremist codewords and unique insights to lead the project.

Greenblatt finished his piece by saying the program built to fight ISIS is not about “inhibit[ing] free speech” but “actually improves the online marketplace of ideas.”

Some people might hear about this and raise concerns that it could inhibit free speech. In fact, the opposite is the case. Internet content skews toward the virality of controversy, polluting the marketplace of ideas with vitriolic speech. The Redirect Method actually improves the online marketplace of ideas, not by limiting any speech, but by ensuring that hateful propaganda and intellectually honest information are presented side-by-side.

Last month, Greenblatt praised Google-owned YouTube after they purged thousands of videos and channels for advocating “bigoted ideologies” but insisted that “more needs to be done” to keep “hate” off their platform.

Screen Shot 2019-07-03 at 10.36.16 AM

Greenblatt said in the past the ADL is working with Google and Facebook to “tweak their algorithms” and “redirect” searches through AI to protect people’s right to “not be harassed or hated.”

Two weeks ago, Tucker Carlson reported on how the Koch brothers are teaming up with the ADL, George Soros and other Big Tech companies to “fight online extremism.”

“The Charles Koch Institute will be holding a summit with the Anti-Defamation League and executives from major tech companies, including Pinterest, AirBNB, Patreon, and Mozilla,” Tucker Carlson said. “The stated purpose of the meeting is to formulate, quote: ‘best practices on the fight against hate and extremism online.’ You know exactly what that really means: censorship of your views. For the left, fighting ‘extremism’ always entails crushing normal conservatives.”

Last year, Greenblatt presented Apple CEO Tim Cook with an award after he banned Alex Jones and cracked down on free speech.

Screen Shot 2019-07-03 at 10.41.27 AM

As MintPressNews’ Whitney Webb reported last month, the ADL is also working together with Google on an algorithmic censorship program called “The Trust Project,” which aims to effectively whitelist mainstream media propaganda outlets and blacklist all websites which don’t satisfy the desires of their censors.

There’s no better way to “improve the online marketplace of ideas” than by blacklisting dissident websites and censoring every voice which runs counter narrative!
