A report released in late October by the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) tells a story as familiar to American immigration authorities as it is now to American military officials. The recent murder of eight in New York City is likewise a savage reminder of how little we know about the many we invite past our borders and into our neighborhoods.
Between 2005 and 2017, according to the report, 2,537 military trainees from Afghanistan arrived here. Over the same period, six percent — 152 of them — went AWOL (absent without leave). While 70 fled the U.S., 27 were placed in deportation proceedings. Strangely, 39 absconders were awarded legal status and 3 more were allowed to return to class. But worryingly, 13 remain at-large and this worry is real.
Trainees receive superior combat instruction. Their disappearances implicate national security because they involve fighting age, weapons-trained recruits who are…

So we had ourselves a riot in Charlottesville last weekend. I wasn’t too surprised, I’ve been expecting it, frankly. Daniel Greenfield in Frontpage Magazinetells you why.
A functioning society requires a middle ground. There has to be someplace where different sides can meet and negotiate their differences. Extremism happens when one or both sides eliminate that middle ground. And then all that’s left is a brutal fight for power.
The left is up on its high horse after the latest violence. But it’s the Democrats who allowed themselves to be taken over by the left. The extremism boosted Black Nationalist racist groups which were quickly mainstreamed.
Democrats demand that Republicans condemn Neo-Nazis. And certainly everyone should make their disgust clear. But Democrats have publicly endorsed Black Lives Matter. And Black Nationalists are just another racist hate group. Who operate with the support of the Democrats.
The Confederate memorial crisis was…

Time to summarise the week again, in cartoons and perhaps videos. From Warsclerotic
This seems right!
Funny, not exactly how I remember it!
Your tourism Euros at work
And from PowerLine, of course. Steve is also right that the news is turning into Groundhog day. Can’t speak for you, but I find the same BS day after day to be boring.
I always love these, those drunken architects!
A bear in the woods.

And, of course, a reminder
Google’s scheme of paying professors to influence public opinion is also how the “global warming” scam works.
“Google operates a little-known program to harness the brain power of university researchers to help sway opinion and public policy, cultivating financial relationships with professors at campuses from Harvard University to the University of California, Berkeley,” the WSJ reported.
In a similar fashion, politicians, foundations and corporate magnates also fund professors to perform “research” into “man-made climate change” which almost always reaches the existing consensus that it’s a threat only global government can handle.
The arguments claiming “the science is settled” and “97% of scientists believe in global warming” are appealing to authority fallacies that are easily debunked given the Google revelations.
And those were nearly the same arguments tobacco companies were making decades ago when they were funding scientists to downplay health risks associated with smoking.
“Research and other professional activities…

Obama diverted money from low-income housing to keep Obamacare alive
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Will this be the final nail in the coffin for the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as “Obamacare?”
Federal court litigation provides evidence the Obama administration illegally diverted taxpayer funds that had not been appropriated by Congress in an unconstitutional scheme to keep Obamacare from imploding.
In 2016, a U.S. District judge caught the Obama administration’s Health and Human Services Department acting unconstitutionally and therefore put an end to the illegal diversion of taxpayer funds, but the Obama administration didn’t stop there.
The Obama administration instead turned to the nation’s two government-sponsored mortgage giants – the Federal National Mortgage Association, commonly known as “Fannie Mae,” and the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation, commonly known as “Freddie Mac” – to invent a new diversion of funds in a desperate attempt to keep Obamacare from collapsing.
