A protester is removed by security as Donald Trump speaks during a campaign stop.

During a Sunday-morning interview, real-estate mogul Donald Trump expressed some support for his fans who reportedly punched and kicked a heckler the day before at a presidential-campaign rally.

After his “Fox & Friends” interviewer referred to the incident as the man being “roughed up,” Trump said, “I don’t know. Rough up? Maybe he should have been roughed up because it was absolutely disgusting what he was doing.”

The Republican front-runner repeatedly called his heckler “obnoxious.”

“The man that was — I don’t know, you say ‘roughed up’ — he was so obnoxious and so loud. He was screaming. I had 10,000 people in the room yesterday — 10,000 people. And this guy started screaming by himself,” Trump recalled.

“I have lot of fans and they were not happy about it. And this was a very obnoxious guy, who was a troublemaker who was looking to make trouble,” he continued.

CNN reported that at a Saturday Trump rally in Birmingham, Alabama, a man wearing a Black Lives Matter T-shirt was “punched and kicked” by attendees as he was ejected for heckling the candidate.

“At least a half-dozen attendees shoved and tackled the protester, a black man, to the ground as he refused to leave the event. At least one man punched the protester and a woman kicked him while he was on the ground,” the network reported.

A Trump spokeswoman told CNN that “the campaign does not condone this behavior.”

When Harry Truman Singled out ‘Ethnic German’ Refugee

The left and the media continue to hit Republicans over the idea that the government ought to pay special attention to Muslim refugees. Last week President Barack Obama slammed the idea: “That’s not American. That’s not who we are. We don’t have religious tests to our compassion.”

In fact, under President Harry S. Truman, the U.S. singled out refugees by ethnicity–and for good reason. Specifically, Truman ordered that refugees of German ethnic origin be investigated for their eligibility for asylum.

The justification was obvious: the U.S. did not want to give refuge to Nazis on the run, to people who had committed war crimes, or to those who might pose a security risk. To prevent that from happening, Truman issued Executive Order #10131 in 1950:


By virtue of the authority vested in me by section 10 of the Displaced Persons Act of 1948, approved June 25, 1948 (62 Stat. 1009), as amended and extended by Public Law 555, 81st Congress, Second Session, approved June 16, 1950, and as President of the United States, it is ordered as follows:

  1. The Displaced Persons Commission is hereby designated as the agency which shall, subject to the provisions of paragraph 2 hereof, make or prepare the investigations and written reports required by sections 10 and 12 of the Displaced Persons Act of 1948, as amended, regarding the character, history, and eligibility under the said Act of eligible displaced persons and persons of German ethnic origin seeking admission into the United States.
  2. The Department of State, the Department of the Army, and such other agencies of the Government as the Displaced Persons Commission may request, shall, in accordance with arrangements agreed upon between the Commission and any such department or agency, furnish the Commission such assistance as it may need in carrying out its responsibilities under paragraph 1 of this order.
  3. This order shall take effect immediately and shall supersede Executive Order No. 10003 of October 4, 1948, (1) entitled “Providing for the Investigation of and Report on Displaced Persons Seeking Admission into the United States.”

Truman also insisted that Jewish refugees from the war be given priority. His “Truman Directive” of 1945 was designed to help Jewish “Displaced Persons.” When Congress passed the Displaced Persons Act in 1948, Truman blasted it for not going far enough to help Jews: “The bill discriminates in callous fashion against displaced persons of the Jewish faith,” he said. He praised a later amendment, which he signed in 1950–on the same day that he signed the above executive order singling out ethnic Germans.

There are parallels to the dilemma America faces today regarding Muslim refugees. We know that terrorists have pretended to be refugees in the past. We also know that many Muslims in the Middle East, including some who have sought refuge in the West, support Islamic terrorism, at least in theory. It is an urgent national security matter to keep such people out of the United States.

It is wrong to single people out by religion once they are U.S. citizens–and Donald Trump deserves criticism for not making that clear, even though the controversy over a “Muslim database” is largely a media creation.

But it is constitutional–and wise–to distinguish among refugees by religion, and to be more vigilant regarding Muslim refugees. Harry Truman would have agreed.

Gangs of New York: Sicilian mafia offers Big Apple protection from ‘psychopathic’ ISIS

The son of a New York mob boss has given Islamic State a stark warning, saying if they are planning any attacks in New York, they will have to contend with the Sicilian mafia. The notorious crime syndicate say they want to do their bit to protect locals.


Giovanni Gambino, the son of a key figure in the Gambino mob organization, says the mafia is in a much better position than security bodies, such as the FBI or Homeland Security, to give New Yorkers the protection they need.

“They often act too late, or fail to see a complete picture of what’s happening due to a lack of ‘human intelligence,’” he said in an interview with NBC News, as cited by Reuters, adding that the mafia’s knowledge of individual movements and interaction with locals gives it the upper hand, even compared to the latest surveillance technologies.

Gambino, who is trying to carve out a career as a Hollywood screenwriter, says that, following the horrendous terror attacks in Paris on November 13, protection is more important than ever.

“The world is dangerous today, but people living in New York neighborhoods with Sicilian connections should feel safe,” he said. “We make sure our friends and families are protected from extremists and terrorists, especially the brutal, psychopathic organization that calls itself the Islamic State,”

Gambino Jr, who was brought up in Torretta, a mountainous area overlooking Palermo, the capital of Sicily, says that Islamic State (formerly ISIS/ISIL) fear the Sicilian mafia, and this has been one of the main reasons why they have not tried to set up any underground cells in Sicily.


The Italian island has not suffered from any terrorist attacks and Gambino feels that the mafia can offer protection in New York to help curb the rise of the Islamist terror group and help people see the mob in a new light.

“The mafia has a bad reputation, but much of that’s undeserved,” says Gambino, who moved to Brooklyn in 1988. “As with everything in life, there are good, bad and ugly parts – the rise of global terrorism gives the mafia a chance to show its good side.”

American History

The teacher said, “Let’s begin by reviewing some American history.  Who said ‘Give me Liberty, or give me Death?'”


She saw a sea of blank faces, except for Little Hodakio, a bright foreign exchange student from Japan, who had his hand up said: “Patrick Henry, 1775.”


“Very good! — Who said, ‘Government of the People, by the People, for the People, shall not perish from the Earth.'”


Again, no response except from Little Hodakio: “Abraham Lincoln, 1863.”


“Excellent,” said the teacher continuing, “Let’s try one a bit more difficult — Who said, ‘Ask not what your country can do for you, but rather what you can do for your country.'”


Once again, Hodakio’s was the only hand in the air and he said: “John F. Kennedy, 1961.”


The teacher snapped at the class, “Class, you should be ashamed of yourselves.  Little Hodakio isn’t from this country and he knows more about our history than you do.”


She heard a loud whisper: “F**k the Japs.”


“Who said that? — I want to know right now!” she angrily demanded.


Little Hodakio put his hand up, “General MacArthur, 1945.”


At that point, a student in the back said, “I’m gonna puke.”


The teacher glares around and asks, “All right! — Now who said that?”


Again, Little Hodakio says, “President George H. W. Bush to the Japanese Prime Minister, 1991.”


Now furious, another student yells, “Oh yeah? — Suck this!”


Little Hodakio jumps out of his chair waving his hand and shouts to the teacher, “Bill Clinton, to Monica Lewinsky, 1997!”


Now with almost mob hysteria someone said, “You little shit! — If you say anything else — I’ll kill you!”


Little Hodakio frantically yells at the top of his voice, “Michael Jackson to the children testifying against him, 2004.”


The teacher fainted.  As-the class gathered around the teacher on the floor, someone said, “Oh shit, we’re F**ked!”






Little Hodakio said quietly, “The American people, November 4, 2008, when Obama was elected”.






What Happened When Australians Turned in Their Guns?


What Happened When Australians Turned in Their Guns?

by Kevin Jackson | Nov 19, 2015

Politicians want people to believe that the government will protect them. Given what politicians want black people to know about cops, one can only wonder what the fallback plan is for black folks.

Well Australia got the public to surrender their guns, and here is the outcome at least according to Ed Chenel, a police officer in Australia who wrote a note that we paraphrased a bit:

Hi Yanks, I thought you all would like to see the real figures from Down Under. It has now been 12 months since gun owners in Australia were forced by a new law to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by our own government, a program costing Australia taxpayers more than $500 million dollars.

The first year results are now in:
  • Australia-wide, homicides are up 6.2 percent,
  • Australia-wide, assaults are up 9.6 percent;
  • Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent (yes, 44 percent)!
In the state of Victoria…..alone, homicides with firearms are now up 300 percent. (Note that while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the criminals did not and criminals still possess their guns!)
While figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady decrease in armed robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically upward in the past 12 months, since the criminals now are guaranteed that their prey is unarmed. There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of the elderly, while the resident is at home.
Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how public safety has decreased, after such monumental effort and expense was expended in ‘successfully ridding Australian society of guns….’
You won’t see this on the American evening news or hear your governor or members of the State Assembly disseminating this information. The Australian experience speaks for itself. Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws only positive outcome is for criminals, leaving the negative effects for law-abiding citizens.
Take note Americans, before it’s too late!

Anonymous (Not any from WS) unleashes DEVASTATING new weapon against ISIS (Warning: disturbing)

Great Idea and Sooo Funny !!!  


Had the British instituted Gun Control on the Colonies-

We’d still be Colonists !



Anonymous unleashes DEVASTATING new weapon against ISIS (Warning: disturbing)

Forget massive raids, airstrikes, threats from the Mafia, or even shutting down their Twitter accounts. Here’s a new weapon that should TRULY scare ISIS — courtesy of the hacktivist group Anonymous.



WARNING: The following content may be unsettling to some.

Via SF Gate:

Anonymous is wielding a new weapon of mass disruption in its ongoing social media war with the Islamic State — Rick Astley videos.

The “hacktivist” group has been flooding all pro-Isis hashtags with countless videos of the red-headed bass-baritone, according to a recent tweet from the #OpParis account.

Anyone familiar with 1980s music videos knows how unsettling watching Astley sing and dance can be. In fact, as Dazed notes, tricking people to watch his “Never Gonna Give You Up” has been a staple of viruses, protests and other online pranks since 2007.

It’s called “Rickrolling.”

Anonymous announced last week its intention to use the deadly tactic to fight ISIS online.

Our upcoming action: spamming verified ISIS hashtags with rickrolls. Will release the list as soon as it’s compiled.

— #OpParis (@OpParisOfficial) November 18, 2015

Whenever some Islamic State account attempts to spread a message or try to get a topic trending, the subject with be barraged with Rick videos from the late ’80s.

And this morning, the group released the first of many Rickroll hashtags — to be used to barrage ISIS tweets.

Our first, yet simple hashtag to #RickrollDaesh is #SupportISIS. Simple, but just our starter. Remember to post the video link. Have fun. — #OpParis (@OpParisOfficial) November 24, 2015

For those who want the link:

— #OpParis (@OpParisOfficial) November 24, 2015

ISIS, which relies heavily on social media, is not taking Anonymous’ tactic lightly. It already released instructions aimed at thwarting the hackers after Anonymous posted information on 11,000 jihadist Twitter accounts, prompting them to shut down.

Wouldn’t you love to be a fly on the wall to see ISIS’ response to this one? The horror!

We’re certainly in unchartered territory, and conventional rules of the game and weapons are no longer enough. Kudos to Anonymous for their creativity in fighting this beast.
