Migrant Crisis: 77 Per Cent of Belgians ‘No Longer Feel at Home’

The massive rise in the proportion of Muslim migrants in the country has resulted in two-thirds of Belgians feeling their nation is being “increasingly invaded”, according to a new study.

This sentiment was especially marked among respondents to the detailed survey aged 65 and over, 84 per cent of whom likened the influx of migrants and refugees to an invasion.

Overall, two-thirds of the 4,734 people polled believe there are “too many immigrants in Belgium”, while 77 per cent agreed with the statement, “Today we no longer feel at home as we did before [mass migration]”.

Entitled Black Yellow Blues 2017, the research was an initiative of public broadcaster RTBF and liberal newspaper Le Soir, carried out by sociology research institute Survey and Action and the globalist ‘This is Not a Crisis’ foundation.

Reporting on the study, which looked at the attitudes of French-speaking Belgians and how they have changed since a similar survey was taken in 1997, RTBF laments that it depicts a population which is growing “increasingly xenophobic”.

“The results raise many questions, but they revealed a society that is filled with fear and the rejection of otherness,” writes the taxpayer-funded broadcaster.

Police have to protect Trump supporters from mob at USC

Campus police escorted two Trump supporters from the premises of the University of Southern California when a mob threatened their safety following a gubernatorial town hall. Protesters repeatedly heckled the Trump supporters during the debate, and several people later accosted them as they stood outside the venue, eventually leading campus police to offer to escort the pair to their car safely.

Campus police escorted two Trump supporters from the premises of the University of Southern California when a mob threatened their safety following a gubernatorial town hall.

The town hall, a partnership between USC, the Empowerment Congress, and Los Angeles County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas, took place in USC’s Bovard Auditorium on Saturday, January 13. Arthur Shaper and Harim Uzziel told Campus Reform that they attended the event to inform their votes for governor and show their support for President Trump and candidate Travis Allen.

As the pair took their seats, protesters with signs declaring “people over profit” hounded them for their evident political views. When the protesters began chanting the slogan, some audience members quietly booed, while Shaper retorted that “people need profit” and “profit makes people stronger.”

A woman sitting in front of the pair then turned around and told Uzziel to be quiet. Uzziel defended his right to civilly reply to the protestors. The woman then reported him to the campus police, who pulled him out of his seat to discuss the incident outside the auditorium.

The Civil War is Here by Daniel Greenfield

The left doesn’t want to secede. It wants to rule.

A civil war has begun.

This civil war is very different than the last one. There are no cannons or cavalry charges. The left doesn’t want to secede. It wants to rule. Political conflicts become civil wars when one side refuses to accept the existing authority. The left has rejected all forms of authority that it doesn’t control.

The left has rejected the outcome of the last two presidential elections won by Republicans. It has rejected the judicial authority of the Supreme Court when it decisions don’t accord with its agenda. It rejects the legislative authority of Congress when it is not dominated by the left.

It rejected the Constitution so long ago that it hardly bears mentioning.

It was for total unilateral executive authority under Obama. And now it’s for states unilaterally deciding what laws they will follow. (As long as that involves defying immigration laws under Trump, not following them under Obama.) It was for the sacrosanct authority of the Senate when it held the majority. Then it decried the Senate as an outmoded institution when the Republicans took it over.

City of Oroville to Sue California For Lying About Dam Safety

The City of Oroville will file the first of what could be hundreds of lawsuits against the State of California for allegedly lying about known dangerous conditions at Oroville Dam.

With America’s tallest dam on the verge of collapse last Feb. 7, the Butte County Sheriff issued an emergency evacuation order affecting approximately 225,000 downstream residents. That was after they had been reassured for by state authorities that there was no risk of Oroville Dam’s failure after its main spillway collapse.

As a result of the spillway failures, mass evacuations, and near-catastrophic collapse of America’s tallest dam, the United States Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FECR) issued a mandatory order on February 21 demanding that the California Department of Water and Power (DWR) commission an independent forensic audit of the circumstances leading up to crisis and any continuing infrastructure safety and operating concerns.

Since the February incident, California’s Department of General Services, which manages government claims for state liability, has denied over 500 claims, including those of the City of Oroville. The total value of claims denied by the state for farmers and local government is about $1.2 billion.

Outkick the Coverage: NFL Playoffs Have Lost 23 Million Viewers from 2016

The NFL has 23 million fewer viewers for this year’s playoff action, a new report says.

With the first round of this year’s NFL playoffs in the rear-view mirror, Outkick the Coverage’s Clay Travis took a look at the TV ratings and found that every game was down by millions of viewers and ratings fell to a ten-year low.

Each of this year’s playoff games has lost over a million plus viewers, Travis said, with the biggest loser being the Saint-Vikings game which lost an incredible 13 million.

“Adding all these numbers up 120.8 million viewers watched the NFL divisional round playoffs in 2018 vs. 144.1 million who watched in 2017, a decline of 23.3 million total viewers,” Travis wrote.

Overall viewership declined over 16 percent, according to this reading of the numbers. It amounts to a ten-year low, Travis said.

Also, these numbers reflect an even worse decline on average than the regular season which itself lost about ten percent of viewers over the 2016 season.

Numbers differ from source to source, of course. In other readings of the ratings, the first round of playoffs declined 13 percent over last year. But with whatever analysis you read, none show good news.

Five of six men indicted in metro Denver heroin-ring bust are in the U.S. illegally

Four of the defendants had been previously deported to Mexico.

ICE detainers have been issued for five of the six people indicted on charges of running a heroin trafficking ring in Jefferson County and other parts of metro Denver.

According to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, four of the men had been deported multiple times before they were indicted on Dec. 22, accused of receiving shipments of heroin from outside Colorado, storing the drugs in four stash houses, and then wiring some of the proceeds from sales to people outside of the U.S.

During the investigation led by the West Metro Drug Task Force, cops made undercover purchases or seized of 3,305 grams of heroin.

According to investigators, potential buyers called and spoke with a dispatcher who told them where and when the drugs would be delivered. A runner then would meet the buyer, and return the cash to Fermin Flores-Rosales, 41, who then wired some of the money to banks in Mexico.

Hungary plans ‘Stop Soros’ laws amid refugee row

George Soros has been branded a ‘public enemy’ by Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban

Hungary published details Thursday of tough anti-immigration laws named after “public enemy” George Soros amid a row over claims Budapest covered up a hike in refugee arrivals.

Hungarian-born US billionaire Soros has been called “a public enemy” by Prime Minister Viktor Orban who accuses the 87-year-old of orchestrating migration into Europe since the refugee crisis began in 2015.

Hungary erected fences on its southern borders in 2015 and last year began holding all adult asylum-seekers in guarded border camps.

The latest three laws — called the “Stop Soros law package” — aim to shut remaining loopholes that allow “illegal immigration” to persist, government spokesman Zoltan Kovacs said in a radio interview.

The proposed measures include entry bans on foreigners and restraining orders stopping Hungarians approaching the border areas if they are deemed to be “supporting” or “organising” illegal immigration, according to the draft legislation published on the government website.
