Italy Arrests Four People Smugglers, With One Linked to Four Migrant Deaths, Including a Woman

Italian authorities in Agrigento have arrested four foreign national human traffickers, one of whom is believed to be connected to the deaths of four migrants, including a woman.

The four alleged people smugglers, three Egyptian nationals and a man from Guinea, were taken into custody by Italian state police in the Sicilian city of Agrigento on Thursday morning following an investigation into landings on the island of Lampedusa last month.

“All of them violated the rules provided for by the Consolidated Law on Illegal Immigration by transporting non-EU citizens to Italian territory, for which the status of irregular foreigners was then ascertained, leading them from the African coasts to Italian territorial waters, onboard boats unsuitable to make the crossing,” investigators said.

According to a report from the newspaper Il Giornale, the 24-year-old Guinean national is believed to be connected to illegal migrant boat landings on Lampedusa on December 17th, including a boat that was discovered by Italian authorities in which a woman was found dead.

The woman was said to have been travelling with her 14-year-old son according to Italian media reports at the time.

The three Egyptians, aged 42 and 43, are said to be linked to a migrant boat landing on December 22nd, that saw 75 migrants, mostly Bangladeshi nationals, arrive on the island. The arrest of the three men came after testimony from migrants themselves, who spoke to investigators.

Over the course of 2021, Lampedusa saw a surge of migrant arrivals on its shores. With a population of just 6,500, the island saw at least 35,000 illegal immigrants arrive, an all-time record and a significant increase from the previous year.

The number of migrants coming to the island has frequently overwhelmed the island migrant reception facility, which is built to house just 250 people. In August, the facility was home to 900 migrants as landings continued.

Michigan Democrats Face Backlash After Telling Parents They Should Not Be Involved in What Public Schools Teach Their Children

Michigan Democrats lectured parents on Facebook this past weekend. The Democrat Party told parents they are not ‘clients’ of public schools and that public education teaches kids what society ‘needs them to know.’

A Facebook post on Saturday shared by the state’s Democrats on their official page attacked the idea that parents should be involved in what public school teaches their children.

The Democrats took the post down on Monday — not because they don’t believe the post but because it gives away their true agenda.

FOX News reported:

A Saturday post made by the Michigan Democrats on their official Facebook page criticized the parents who want to play a role in what public education teaches their children. The post was deleted Monday morning after intense criticism.

“Not sure where this ‘parents-should-control-what-is-taught-in-schools-because-they-are-our-kids’ is originating, but parents do have the option to send their kids to a hand-selected private school at their own expense if this is what they desire,” the post read.

“The purpose of public education in public schools is not to teach kids only what parents want them to be taught,” the Michigan Democratic Party’s post continued. “It is to teach them what society needs them to know. The client of the public school is not the parent, but the entire community, the public.”

The Michigan Democratic Party later deleted that post and issued a quasi-apology.

“We have deleted a post that ignored the important role parents play—and should play—in Michigan public schools. Parents need to have a say in their children’s education, end of story,” a subsequent post on Monday stated. “The post does not reflect the views of Michigan Democrats and should not be misinterpreted as a statement of support from our elected officials or candidates.”

The state’s Republicans were sharply critical of the Democrats’ original post.

US Army Guerrilla Warfare Exercise to Target “Freedom Fighters”

Published

on

The US Army is set to conduct a “guerrilla warfare exercise” later this month in North Carolina where troops will battle against “freedom fighters.”

Yes, really.

The two week “unconventional warfare exercise” will take from from Jan. 22-Feb. 4 on privately owned land in a remote location which remains unknown.

“Called Robin Sage, the exercise serves as a final test for Special Forces Qualification Course training and it places candidates in a politically unstable country known as Pineland,” reports the Charlotte Observer.

“These military members act as realistic opposing forces and guerrilla freedom fighters, also known as Pineland resistance movement,” said the the U.S. Army John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center.

Information about the exercise was provided to the media in a bid to avoid civilians confusing the drills with actual terrorist attacks or warfare, which has happened before.

“It will be realistic enough to include the sounds of gunfire (blanks) and flares,” said the center.

As Chris Menahan notes, a similar Robin Sage exercise in 2019 showed resistance fighters displaying a flag that says “liberty.”

“They could tell these soldiers they’re battling the Chinese, Russians, Iranians, North Koreans or other foreign enemies but instead they have them training to kill “freedom fighters” with “Liberty” flags,” writes Menahan.

The exercise will do little to dampen concerns that the Biden administration is launching a de facto ‘domestic war on terror’ targeting patriots and Trump supporters.

Following the January 6 Capitol riot, Democrats ludicrously compared the events to September 11 in an attempt to justify using federal resources that would normally be focused on actual terrorists against American conservatives.

Earlier this month, the Justice Department created a new “specialized unit focused on domestic terrorism” in response to an “elevated” threat from violent extremists in the United States.

However, polls show that Americans are split on who represents the biggest threat, particularly after the Waukesha attack, its subsequent cover up, in addition to the fact that left-wing extremists spent much of 2020 rioting and burning down American cities.

A recent Schoen Cooperman Research survey found that voters are split on domestic extremism, with 23 per cent naming left-wing extremism and 21 per cent naming right-wing extremism as the greater concern.

Following the January 6 incident, Army General Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said he wanted to understand “white rage,” although an interest in understanding “black rage” after a sustained period of violent mayhem caused by Black Lives Matter protesters wasn’t seemingly of any importance.

“I want to understand white rage, and I’m white,” Gen. Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said while testifying before Congress, pushing back on accusations from a Republican congressman that the military was becoming too “woke.” https://t.co/ix4dKxrC2d pic.twitter.com/HkFVB7d6Ur

MIT-Educated Doctor Ordered to Undergo Psych Evaluation After Prescribing Ivermectin

Published

An MIT-educated doctor who prescribed COVID patients Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine had her medical license suspended and was ordered to undergo a psychiatric evaluation.

Maine’s Board of Licensure in Medicine voted to pull Dr Meryl Nass’ medical license for 30 days after accusing her of circulating “misinformation” about COVID-19.

Health officials asserted that Nass “constitutes an immediate jeopardy to the health and physical safety of the public who might receive her medical services” as a result of her procuring anti-viral drugs to treat COVID.

The medical board voted to suspend Nass after receiving just two complaints that she was posting false information on her blog and on Twitter.

A doctor informed the Maine board of how he was contacted by the son of a patient who claimed his father was “borderline delirious” and “not doing well” after being prescribed Ivermectin by Nass.

Nass also self-reported to the medical board when she admitted obtaining Hydroxychloroquine by falsely claiming her COVID patient was suffering from Lyme disease.

“This was the only way to get a potentially life-saving drug for my patient,” said Ness.

This is why so few doctors are willing to speak up. In this crazy world, they are risking everything for not toeing the line. This is someone who showed actual courage. https://t.co/YaX5zHgUGL

In her blog posts, Ness has questioned the efficacy and safety of COVID-19 vaccines, asserting that they are associated with reproductive harm.

Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine have proven controversial because they are not officially authorized by the FDA to treat COVID, but some doctors and prominent public figures have asserted that they work well against the virus.

The media has also engaged in misinformation surrounding Ivermectin, with the Associated Press having to apologize for falsely claiming that 70 per cent of calls to the Mississippi Poison Control Center were about people ingesting ivermectin to treat COVID-19.

CNN refused to apologize to Joe Rogan after falsely claiming the podcast host took “horse dewormer,” despite Rogan having been given Ivermectin, a drug routinely used to treat humans, by a licensed doctor.

“They shouldn’t have said it was horse dewormer,” acknowledged CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta during an appearance on Rogan’s show.

Last week, Rogan accused CNN of doctoring a video of himself from last year in which the host announced that he had COVID.

Joe Rogan asks Sanjay Gupta if it bothers him that CNN outright lied about Rogan taking horse dewormer to recover from covid. This is fantastic: pic.twitter.com/PEgJqIXhSD
