Terror attacks are ‘part and parcel of living in a big city’, claims London mayor Sadiq Khan

white-flag

From Daily Mail: The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has said that living with terror attacks – like the one that hit New York at the weekend – is ‘part and parcel of living in a big city’.

Mr. Khan told the Evening Standard: ‘It is a reality I’m afraid that London, New York, other major cities around the world have got to be prepared for these sorts of things. That means being vigilant, having a police force that is in touch with communities, it means the security services being ready, but also it means exchanging ideas and best practice.’

The dopey mayor...

The dopey mayor…

Mr. Khan, who was elected as Mayor in May to replace Boris Johnson, who is ironically now Britain’s Foreign Secretary, was in the United States on a business trip.  He said he had a ‘sleepless’ night on Saturday after a bomb exploded on West 23rd Street in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighbourhood, injuring 31 people.

Another device on 27th Street in Manhattan failed to go off and Ahmad Rahami, an Afghan-born US citizen was later arrested in New Jersey.  Mr. Rahami has been charged in relation to the New York explosion and another device that exploded harmlessly hours earlier near a race in Seaside Park, New Jersey.

After taking advice from the New York authorities it was ‘business as usual’ for Mr. Khan, who visited the 9/11 memorial and attended a New York Mets baseball game. Mr. Khan reportedly hinted that the Mets could come to London next year to play a Major League Baseball game at West Ham’s Olympic Stadium.

Mr. Khan later met with the Mayor of New York, Bill de Blasio, as well as with Muslim community leaders, and co-wrote an editorial in the New York Times.

Mr. Khan, who was the first Muslim Mayor of a major western city when he was elected in May, Mr. de Blasio and Paris’s Mayor, Anne Hidalgo, wrote: ‘We call on world leaders to adopt a similar welcoming and collaborative spirit on behalf of the refugees all over the world. Our cities stand united in the call for inclusivity. It is part of who we are as citizens of diverse and thriving cities.’

Leader of Black Lives Matter UK ‘blacked up’ and pretended to be ‘in the minstrels’

Adam Cooper – black lives matter campaigner

Via The Sun:  The all-white group protested against “racist climate change”, calling their action “white allyship under black leadership”. Now it has emerged the public face of the movement once impersonated white US actor Al Jolson, who used “blackface” make-up in 1927 film The Jazz Singer.

Oxford student Adam Elliott-Cooper, 29, daubed his face with mud at a spring on the Caribbean island of St Lucia and copied Jolson’s “jazz hands” dance moves.

The mixed-race activist bragged in a Facebook post: “The natural sulphur at the  springs is supposed 2 be good for your skin. But me and my brother decided we could make better use of it if we pretended we were in the minstrels.

When someone asked if he was trying to be black, Elliott-Cooper replied: “I was going for the dark skinned asian look.”

Adam Elliott Cooper interview on Radio 4 Black Lives Matter

The post-grad geography student, whose family live in a £500,000 home in Wood Green, North London, has represented Black Lives Matter UK on Radio 4’s Today programme and Channel 4 news.

He is studying groups like BLM for his thesis on race issues in modern Britain.

And while BLM does not support any political party, Elliott-Cooper is a huge backer of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn. He also claimed England was on the “brink of fascism” after voting for Brexit.

But he appears to have remained tight-lipped since nine of his BLM comrades launched a six-hour demonstration on the runway of East London’s City Airport. They have all been charged with aggravated trespass and being unlawfully airside, which can lead to three months’ jail.

Desperate Target Tries Assigning Employees To Grocery Department To Attract Customers

Targets sales are down. As Dr. Eowyn noted last August, Target blamed it on the economy and the declining buying power of the consumer. The executives are totally clueless. They will not admit that the boycott against their transgender bathroom policy is having an effect on their bottom line.

Now Target is doubling down on stupid, again.

Target's new transgender bathroom

From Consumerist: Target would really, really like to increase its grocery sales, but the habits of its own customers are in the way. Target shoppers simply aren’t in the store often enough to make it their grocery provider. Maybe some new changes will help change that, as Target tries the wacky idea of assigning some employees to the grocery department to keep it stocked and functional.

Yes, the idea of having some employees who work only in the grocery department and not elsewhere in the store might seem intuitive, but it apparently wasn’t for Target. Now the chain is trying to make up for it by quickly rolling the change out in its stores across the country.

Assignments to the grocery team may have already happened at a store near you: the chain has assigned grocery squads at 450 of its stores so far, and plans to reach 150 more stores by the end of October.

This is one way to invest in groceries without making big capital expenditures in the department, which is something that the company has hesitated to do after past food-selling failures.

Yet if Target wants to stay competitive with Walmart, it has to find a way to keep customers coming back every week or two, especially after driving away loyal pharmacy customers by selling its pharmacies to CVS.

Merkel says refugees didn’t bring Islamist terrorism to Germany

The facts mean nothing to this womyn.

Merkel: Doubling down on stoopid

Merkel: Doubling down on stoopid

Via Reuters: Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Wednesday refugees had not brought terrorism to Germany, adding that Islam belonged in the country as long as it was practiced in a way that respected the constitution.

More than a million people fleeing war and poverty in the Middle East, Africa and elsewhere arrived in Germany last year. The mood towards them has soured after a spate of attacks on civilians last month, including three carried out by migrants.

Two of those attacks were claimed by the Islamic State militant group.

“The phenomenon of Islamist terrorism, of IS, is not a phenomenon that came to us with the refugees,” Merkel said at an election campaign event for her Christian Democrats in the eastern state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern ahead of a regional vote on Sept. 4.

Merkel said many people had traveled from Germany to Syria for training with Islamist militants. In June Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere said a total of more than 800 were believed to have gone to Syria and Iraq.

“This group has worried us for several years,” she said at the event in Neustrelitz, a town 100 km (60 miles) north of Berlin.

Merkel’s popularity has suffered in the wake of the attacks and 52 percent of Germans think her migrant policy is bad, a poll published last week showed.

The influx of migrants, many of whom are Muslim, has boosted support for the anti-immigrant Alternative for Germany (AfD), which is expected to perform well in elections in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and Berlin.

“We have said clearly that an Islam that works and lives on the basis of the constitution … belongs to Germany,” Merkel said. She added that a type of Islam that did not stick to the constitution or accept equal rights for women had no place in the country.
