Switzerland: No citizenship for refugees and welfare recipients until money is repaid

Although not part of the European Union, Switzerland partakes in “resettling” Syrian refugees. In 2016, the Swiss government announced they would take 3,000 asylum seekers from the war-torn country, as well as resettle up to 50,000 asylum seekers who had crossed the border into Switzerland, mostly from Italy.

Unlike the other European countries and the United States, however, Switzerland isn’t stupid in being charitable.

Joseph Curl reports for the Daily Wire, Jan. 10, 2018, that Switzerland, where the average annual GDP per capita is nearly $80,000, recently enacted a new  law that prevents residents who receive welfare benefits from becoming citizens until they pay back the money they took.

The new regulations that took effect January 1 specify that:

  1. Asylum seekers and refugees who received handouts in the previous three years can’t become permanent residents — and thus, on the road to becoming full citizens — without first paying back the government.
  2. Refugees must prove they are making efforts to integrate into society in order to win citizenship by showing they have “cultivated contacts” with a number of Swiss people.
  3. There are also new language requirements, which vary depending on the canton they live in.

What Switzerland is doing is tough love.

Being charitable doesn’t mean one has to be a sap, a doormat. Nor should an open door policy to refugees and migrants be only one-way, where the host country gives and gives, but receives little or nothing in return. Human nature  being what it is, such a policy simply leads to the welfare-recipient feeling “entitled” and even contemptuous of the giver. Refugees and migrants have a responsibility to repay charity with hard work and a willingness to assimilate to become responsible citizens.

Why can’t the U.S. be more like Switzerland?

9,294 sealed indictments and the last time Hillary, Podesta and Soros were on Twitter

An indictment is a formal accusation that a person has committed a crime. A sealed indictment is an indictment that stays non-public until an arrest is made. Sealed indictments are typically used in prosecuting individuals or criminal networks in cases where revealing names could lead individuals to flee or destroy evidence.

In 2006, there were only 1,077 sealed indictments for the entire year, according to a 2009 Federal Judicial Center report. Those sealed indictments made up about 0.96% of all criminal cases that year.

Contrast that to 2017. In less than two months (October 30 to December 22, 2017), 9,294 sealed indictments have been filed in districts across the United States, according to data collected by researchers and gathered from the Public Access to Court Electronic Records (PACER) service of the federal judiciary. 

According to Marc Ruskin, a former FBI undercover agent and author of The Pretender: My Life Undercover for the FBI, the large number of sealed indictments is something he’d never seen in his 27 years as an agent. Ruskin said this may explain the relatively low profile maintained by Attorney General Jeff Sessions because “If he’s been occupied with an initiative that is sort of under wraps and being conducted covertly, it would explain why he hasn’t had a prominent position in the media as of late—because these are things he can’t talk about.” (The Epoch Times)

When unsealed, all those indictments will require prosecutors. And so it makes sense that on Jan. 3, 2018, Attorney General Jeff Sessions appointed 17 current and former federal prosecutors as interim U.S. attorneys.  (Washington Post)

The extraordinarily large number of sealed indictments has sparked speculations and rumors that the Trump Department of Justice is going after Hillary Clinton and  pedophiles (pizzagate):

  • According to a January 4, 2018 report by John Solomon for The Hill, law enforcement officials and a witness said that the Justice Department has launched a new inquiry into whether the Clinton Foundation engaged in any pay-to-play politics or other illegal activities while Hillary Clinton was as secretary of State.
  • Former FBI agent Ruskin said the lack of chatter about the sealed indictments in legacy news outlets and retired FBI circles may suggest that the higher-ups have no political interest in leaking their content. Ruskin believes that the most plausible cause for the surge of sealed indictment is human trafficking. Even his work investigating the mafia didn’t generate anywhere near as many sealed indictments as those currently pending; but with a human trafficking network, he said, there would be multiple groups operating in multiple districts—which fits the profile.

The rumors are fueled by cryptic “bread crumbs” made by an apparent Trump White House insider who has been posting on the 4chan and 8chan message boards as “Q Anonymous”. Among his tantalizing “bread crumbs” are the following:

(1) On December 11, 2017, Q Anon posted on 8chan: “We have a special place picked out for GS. Really special.” Six days later on December 17, 2017, President Trump tweeted: “Wonderful weekend at Camp David. A very special place. A lot of very important work done.” That led to speculations that George Soros had been captured and confined in Camp David.

That same day, December 17, 2017, Atlanta International Airport had a major power blackout that lasted 11 hours. Q Anon asks: “why did they have to shut the whole airport / time to get one person out / who was the person”.

Flight logs show that, whereas planes were grounded and more than 1,000 flights were canceled, a cargo plane operated by Israeli CAL Cargo Airlines was allowed to fly from the airport. CAL Cargo Airlines boasts a Customs Clearance status — “the ability to load and unload trucks without the presence of a customs agent”.  The plane’s records show that it made a stop at its hub in Liege, in Larnaca, Cyprus, and then landed in Tel Aviv, Israel. (The Free Thought Project)

(2) On December 19, 2017, Q Anon posted the message that “We won’t telegraph our moves to the ENEMY. We will however light a FIRE to flush them out.” On January 3, 2018, a fire broke out in a cottage occupied by the Secret Service on Bill and Hillary Clinton’s property in Chappaqua, New York. The Clintons were not home at the time.

One clue for whether some of the key players have been arrested is their Twitter feeds. They can’t tweet if they’re arrested, although there are also other reasons why someone stops tweeting. This is what I found:

7/6/2016: Huma Abedin’s (@HumaAbedin) last tweet. (Note: There is a pic of Abedin taken on Dec. 29, 2017, in which a strange wrinkle on her right pant leg suggests an ankle monitor.)

6/16/2017: Tony Podesta’s (@realTonyPodesta) last tweet. In early November, it was rumored that he’d been indicted and arrested.

9/9/2017: Congresswoman Jackie Speier’s (@JackieSpeier) last tweet. Speier’s other, official Twitter account’s @RepSpeier last tweet, however, was today, 1/9/2018. (Speier has been seen wearing an orthopedic boot.)

10/25/2017: Congresswoman Jackie Walorski’s (@JackieWalorski) last tweet. Walorski’s other, official Twitter account’s (@RepWalorski) last tweet was today, January 9, 2018. (Walorski was photographed on November 2, 2017, wearing a medical boot.)

11/26/2017: George Soros’s (@georgesoros) last tweet.

12/17/2017: Atlanta International Airport blackout.

12/17/2017: John Podesta’s (@johnpodesta) last tweet.

12/21/2017: President Trump issues the Global Magnitsky Act executive order “blocking the property of persons involved in serious human rights abuse or corruption”.

12/29/2017: Barack Obama’s (@BarackObama) last tweet.

1/2/2018: Hillary Clinton’s (@HillaryClinton) last tweet. (Hillary was photographed on December 14, 2017, wearing a medical boot.)

1/3/2018: Clinton house fire.

1/9/2018: John McCain’s (@SenJohnMcCain) last tweet. (McCain also wears a medical boot.)

Some observations:

  • Tony Podesta has not tweeted for nearly 7 months, since last June. But then he hardly ever tweeted.
  • George Soros has not tweeted for 1½ months, since November 26. But then he is 87 years old. Last October, almost as if he had anticipated Trump’s executive order blocking the property of human rights abusers, Soros craftily transferred the bulk (78% or $18 billion) of his net worth into his Open Society Foundation.
  • John Podesta has not tweeted for 23 days, since December 17.
  • Given the recent dates of Hillary’s and McCain’s last tweets, it sure doesn’t look like either has been arrested.

Elderly Meals-On-Wheels volunteer attacked by machete man

File this under “No good deed goes unpunished”.

Dom Amato reports for WCAX that on Jan. 5, 2018, a 73-year-old Meals on Wheels female volunteer was dropping off meals at Harbor Place in Shelburne, Vermont, when she was attacked by a man wielding a machete.

Harbor Place provides temporary emergency housing with services, run by the Champlain Housing Trust.

Police had responded to calls about a man with a knife smashing out car windows. Corporal Jon Marcoux of Shelburne Police said, “On arrival we found that this person who was reported to have a knife, had actually attacked an elderly female.”

32-year-old Abukar Ibrahim was the one with a machete. From his picture (see below), it is not clear if he is a black American or a Muslim immigrant.

Corporal Marcoux said Ibrahim “barricaded himself in the room. After two and a half hours, he came out on his own.”

Marcoux  says the Shelburne Police Department gets a fair number of calls about Harbor Place: “I think anytime you put a lot of people in a place, not necessarily Harbor Place, but any place, the more contact people have with others, especially under trying circumstances, I think generates more calls.”

Ibrahim is scheduled to be arraigned on Monday, on the charge of attempted murder. He is being held at the Chittenden Regional Correctional Facility. His victim, the elderly woman, sustained multiple injuries, was taken to the hospital and later released.

Question: Given the fact that some 40% of homeless people are mentally ill or drug addicts, would you minister to them, like the 73-year-old Meals On Wheels volunteer? Or is doing so just asking for trouble? Not trying to be cynical, but would you think this woman to be a “useful idiot”?

Somali migrant in Italy tries to rape woman about to give birth in delivery room

Somalia is a country in the Horn of Africa, with a population of 14.3 million in 2016, 99.8% of whom are Muslim.

The ongoing civil war has led to the Somali diaspora — an exodus of Somali refugees and migrants primarily to the Arabian peninsula, Western Europe, North America, Southern Africa and Australia. An estimated 8,228 Somalis are in Italy.

Below is an account of a sex-crazed Somali “migrant” in Italy who befits the term “rapefugee”.

Libero Quotidiano reports that on December 31, 2017, a 38-year-old Somali citizen stole a green nursing uniform from a warehouse at the Sant’Eugenio hospital in Rome, Italy.

He then entered the delivery room and attempted to rape a 43-year-old woman in the throes of labor. He groped the woman and started to masturbate. The woman’s screams alerted nurses and a doctor who immediately summoned the police.

Police arrested the Somali on charges of sexual violence.

On January 2, 2018, the judges of the fifth penal section of Rome validated the arrest and ordered that the man be detained in prison, pending his trial on January 10.

The Somali has been in Italy for several years and has a criminal record. His defense is asking that the man undergo a psychiatric examination.

The average IQ score in Somalia is 68. A “moron” is defined as a person with an IQ score of 70 or below. That means the average Somali is a moron. (See “How smart or stupid is your country?“)

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, in 2016, there were 135,266 Somalis in the United States. Below is a video of Somalis in the Mall of America, Minneapolis.

2017: Chicago’s homicides outnumber US military casualties 18:1

chiraq

The moniker “Chiraq” aptly earned.

As reported by Michael W. Chapman at CNSNews.com: There were 664 homicides in Chicago in 2017* and, for comparison, 37 casualties in the U.S. military in its myriad operations around the globe. That’s according to data from the Chicago Tribune and from the Department of Defense’s press office.

*HeyJackass! shows the final homicide tally at 675.

The Chicago deaths are for the period Jan. 1, 2017 through Dec. 31, 2017; the military deaths are from Jan. 1, 2017 through Dec. 22, 2017, which is the latest update on casualties by the DoD posted so far. (There may have been a few more military casualties in December.)

From the data available, it shows that Chicago suffered 17.9 times more homicides than the U.S. military worldwide — combat and non-combat related deaths — last year.

For Chicago, 664 homicides — murders by shooting or other means (not including suicides) — averages to 1.8 homicides every day of the year.

For the U.S. military, some of the deaths were combat related and some were non-combat related. For instance, the first death, on Jan. 7, 2017, was a non-combat related incident. Spc. Isiah L. Booker, of Cibolo, Texas, who was supporting Operation Inherent Resolve, died in the incident, which is under investigation.

On Jan. 29, 2017, Chief Special Warfare Operator William “Ryan” Owens, 36, of Peoria, Ill., died in “the Arabian Peninsula of Yemen, of wounds sustained in a raid against al-Qaida,” said the DoD.

On April 8, 2017, Staff Sgt. Mark R. De Alencar, 37, of Edgewood, Md., was killed in the Nangarghar Province of Afghanistan when “his unit came in contact with enemy forces using small arms fire during combat operations,” reported the DoD.

U.S. troops have been fighting in Afghanistan since October 2001, more than 16 years ago.  U.S. troops have been in Iraq since March 2003, more than 14 years ago.

The Chicago homicides are monitored and documented by the Chicago Tribune staff 24 hours a day, according to their website, “Crime in Chicagoland.”

Sweden: Raped by 20 Muslims, woman told she’s disgusting because she has semen in her hair

“Whom the gods would destroy they first make mad”.

That famous quote was said by Prometheus in Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s poem “The Masque of Pandora” (1875).

Lack of empathy is a form of madness — a defining attribute of the narcissistic and anti-social personality disorders, and of psychopaths. Prometheus’ quote is descriptive of contemporary Sweden that, like Germany and Denmark, is besieged by an epidemic of rapes and sexual assaults by Muslim “refugees” and “migrants”.

Chang Frick reports for the newspaper Nyheteridag (Metro), Nov. 25, 2017, that more details are now known about the sensational gang rape of a woman in Fittja in August 2016.

Fittja is a district of Botkyrka Municipality, a suburb of the Swedish capital, Stockholm. In 2008, Fittja had a population of 7,458, 64.7% of whom were of non-Swedish origin, of whom 25.1% were non-Swedish citizens.

The Swedish government refuses to identify and keep a record of its residents by their race and ethnicity. But we all know what “non-Swedish origin” and “non-Swedish citizens” mean, given the presence of the Fittja Mosque, and the fact that Fittja is identified as among the most severe category of urban areas with the highest crime rates in Swedish police’s 2017 report.

Indeed, 10News describes Fittja as “a Muslim dominated area”.

In August 2016, a woman was raped, kicked and beaten in a Fittja stairwell by 20 men, who laughed and filmed the gang rape.

The people whom the bloodied woman turned to for help all ignored her:

  • A neighbor who saw what happened told police he has “learned not to see or hear so much”.
  • The rape victim rang the bell of a nearby apartment to ask that the police be notified. But the man who answered the door refused to help and showed her the way out.
  • The woman tried to get help from a guard at the train station, but was turned away.
  • Then the woman went to the Fittja City Center for help. According to the police report, a man at the center said to the woman, “Eeew, you are disgusting. You have sperm on your face and on your clothes. Don’t involve us.”

10News reports that the woman had to take the subway to central Stockholm to seek help. Several men are now charged with the crime. All of the rapists are reported to have “migrant background” — Swedish media’s euphemism for Muslim migrants.

Why did the Christians of Iraq find no protection from George W Bush?

I was duped! I trusted Bush, but hindsight proves me wrong.

Today’s article in Breitbart deals with the divide between the “Neocons” and what we believe to be real conservatism.

BREITBART – John Zmirak: #NeverTrump National Review Licked ‘the Mud Off of George W. Bush’s Boots’ While He Allowed Iraq’s Christians to Be Ethnically Cleansed

by ROBERT KRAYCHIK – 30 Dec 2017

National Review “let themselves be turned into the propaganda wing of the neo-conservative movement” during the George W. Bush administration, while ignoring the ethnic cleansing of Iraq’s Christian communities under Bush’s watch, said John Zmirak, Senior Editor of The Stream and author of the new Politically Incorrect Guide to Catholicism.

It grieves me to the core to know what evil was perpetrated by our government. 

Lord Jesus, as we end 2017 and begin a new year, we ask you to mercifully grant us your leadership through 2018. Thank you for your great love, which lights our hearts.
