Surveillance cameras capture an attempted armed robbery. A 19yo man attempted to rob a 25yo woman at gunpoint waiting at a bus stop at 103rd & Wallace. What he didn’t know is that she has a concealed carry license. She pulled out her gun and shot him in the neck. He died.

The suspect took off running down the street and she ran in the opposite direction. Police found him and transported him to Christ Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Neighbors in the area say they are proud the victim protected herself.

“It’s tragic that he did die, but the lady had to do what she had to do,” said neighbor Bianca Daniel. “She’s on a bus stop, probably going to work, you know, and she has to encounter that early in the morning. I’m kinda of proud that, like, that’s what she did because she stuck up for herself.”

Those that know the area well say it’s unfortunate someone was killed, but the victim had the right to fight back.

“I’m glad that she had concealed carry and good aim, because there is so much going on in these streets,” said one neighbor.

The man has been identified to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office as Laavion Goings.

The woman suffered a minor injury, but is expected to be okay. Area South detectives are investigating, though they said no charges will be filed.

The British Unsung Hero of Burma

Pacific Paratrooper

Major Hugh Paul Seagrim

Major Hugh Paul Seagrim

For all the heroes that became famous, there are just as many that did heroic deeds which, for them, was their duty. One of them, British Major Hugh Paul Seagrim, dedicated his life to resisting Japanese forces when they invaded Burma.

Seagrim was born in Hampshire, England in 1909. He was schooled at Norwich and then joined the Royal Military College at Sandhurst. In 1929 he obtained a commission in the British Indian army. He was sent to Burma and before long was accepted by the Karens, forming close friendships.

British in Burma

Burma, now called Myanmar, is situated west of Laos and Thailand in Southeast Asia. It was a colony of Great Britain from 1886 until 1948. The different major ethnic groups living in Myanmar are Burmans, Karen, Shan, Chinese, Mon, and Indian.

Most Indonesian countries regarded the British as haughty foreigners…

When Germany Planned to Airdrop Fake Money to Take Down Great Britain in World War II

H/T Atlas Obscura.

Just think of the economic havoc this would have caused in Great Britain if the Nazi plan had been put into effect.

Nothing looks particularly remarkable about the World War II-era printing plate at the Spy Museum in Washington, D.C. It displays the text and serial numbers you would expect to find on British banknotes from the time, but this artifact didn’t come from the British government—as the video from Atlas Obscura below explains. The plate was a tool used by Nazi Germany in an attempt to delegitimize the economy of Great Britain.

When they weren’t combating troops on the battlefield, Germany was devising ways to bring down other European nations using spy tactics. One of these strategies was called Operation Bernhard. By printing 130 million pounds of fake British currency and slipping it into Britain via airdrop, Germany hoped to cripple the nation’s economy.

To make the banknotes, Nazis relied on forced labor from artists, bankers, and known forgers being held captive in concentration camps. Details from the authentic bills—including watermarks, serial numbers, and the type of paper used to make them—were replicated in the forged documents.

Despite the effort put into the project, the fake banknotes never made itinto British circulation. The Luftwaffe, the airfleet Germany had planned to use to drop the bills over Britain, had sustained too many losses by the time the plan was ready to be set in motion. Germany may have used some of the counterfeit cash to launder money and pay off spies working for the army, but by the end of World War II, any remaining evidence of the scheme was disposed of in a lake in Austria.

Years later, those artifacts were recovered, and the Spy Museum recently added the pound notes and a forged printing plate to its collection. According the museum, the plate is the only known surviving printing plate created by Nazi Germany for Operation Bernhard.

To see the artifacts and learn more about them, check out the video from Atlas Obscura below.

BBC asks if Muslim teen who fled Saudi Arabia “should be killed for leaving Islam”

H/T Jihad Watch.

What is wrong with the people at the BBC for asking such a question?

The BBC should be condemning these seventh-century savages.

“BBC asks if Muslim teenager who fled Saudi ‘should be killed for leaving Islam.’” The question is shocking, as is this question, also posed by BBC: “what is the right punishment for blasphemy?” Yet it was still asked by the BBC, and only after scorching rebuke from readers did a retraction and apology follow. But the damage was done.

As per Islam, the penalty facing this young teen was clearly spelled out in a previous Jihad Watchpost about 18-year-old Rahaf Mohammed al-Qunun:

  • So do not take from among them allies until they emigrate for the cause of Allah. But if they turn away, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them and take not from among them any ally or helper.” (Qur’an 4:89)
  • A hadith depicts Muhammad saying: “Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him” (Bukhari 9.84.57). The death penalty for apostasy is part of Islamic law according to all the schools of Islamic jurisprudence.
  • This is still the position of all the schools of Islamic jurisprudence, both Sunni and Shi’ite. Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the most renowned and prominent Muslim cleric in the world, has stated: “The Muslim jurists are unanimous that apostates must be punished, yet they differ as to determining the kind of punishment to be inflicted upon them. The majority of them, including the four main schools of jurisprudence (Hanafi, Maliki, Shafi’i, and Hanbali) as well as the other four schools of jurisprudence (the four Shiite schools of Az-Zaidiyyah, Al-Ithna-‘ashriyyah, Al-Ja’fariyyah, and Az-Zaheriyyah) agree that apostates must be executed.”

The BBC should be condemning Islamic blasphemy laws and defending human rights and women’s rights. Rahaf Mohammed al-Qunun is a genuine refugee — unlike the multitudes of economic migrants that flooded Europe. She needs to be protected from those who want to murder her, and should promptly be given asylum in Australia.

Another young Saudi girl — another genuine refugee — was dragged back from an airport to Saudi Arabia to a presumably horrible fate while trying to escape the country in 2017. Dina Ali Lasloom ran away from her family after she was abused. She made it to an airport in the Philippines, but despite the scene she made with her desperate pleas for safety and freedom, Dina was last seen screaming and being dragged onto a Saudi Arabia Airlines flight from Manila to Riyadh. She was never heard from again. The Saudi embassy in Manila issued an appalling statement “calling the case a ‘family matter’ and added without elaborating that she had ‘returned with her relatives to the homeland.’”

Shame on the BBC, which should be highlighting the abuses resulting from Islamic blasphemy laws.

“BBC asks if Muslim teenager who fled Saudi ‘should be killed for leaving Islam,’” by Rob Waugh, Metro UK, January 9, 2019:

In a now-deleted Tweet, BBC Asian network asked viewers if they ‘respected the decision’ of a teenager who fled Saudi Arabia saying she would be killed for renouncing Islam. The Tweet read, ’18-year-old Rahaf Mohammed al-Qunun fled Saudi Arabia as she said her family would kill her for choosing to leave Islam – do you respect her decision?’ The Tweet was rapidly picked up by Media Guido – and the BBC posted an edited version minus the part about ‘respecting her decision.’

Irate readers responded on Twitter with comments such as ‘You’re a waste of taxpayer’s money,’ and the BBC rapidly deleted the Tweet and apologised. BBC Asian Network previously stirred up controversy with a Tweet asking, ‘What is the right punishment for blasphemy?’

Australia has said it will assess the runaway Saudi woman for settlement after the United Nations deemed her a refugee. The Department of Home Affairs confirmed that the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) had referred 18-year-old Rahaf Mohammed Alqunun to Australia for consideration for refugee settlement.

Ms Alqunun arrived in Bangkok on a flight from Kuwait on Saturday and planned to continue to Australia, for which she held a tourist visa. But after being detained by Thai authorities, she refused to board a flight back to Kuwait, barricading herself in a hotel room…..

WATCH: Young Idiots HATE ‘Trump’s’ Take On Immigration – But The Quotes Are From DEMS!

H/T Clash Daily.

These skulls full of mush are so eaten up with Trump Derangement Syndrome they cannot accept DemocRats spoke in favor of border security and a wall.

How blind with Trump Derangement Syndrome is the younger generation? This video reveals it.

Campus Reform’s Cabot Phillips often goes to do man-on-the-street interviews with college students. It’s interesting to see how uniform they are in their opinions.

In this episode, Phillips went to the campus of American University to discuss the issue of the Border Wall. He brought with him some of the really hot takes by President Trump about the need for a wall at the southern border.

Students called the statements ‘dehumanizing’, ‘jingoistic’, and ‘hateful speech’.

Oh, wait. That wasn’t President Trump at all. Those were quotes by Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Chuck Schumer.

“Illegal Immigration is wrong, plain and simple. Until the American people are convinced we will stop future flows of illegal immigration, we will make no progress.” -Senator Chuck Schumer, 2009

“We simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented and unchecked” -Barack Obama, 2005

“I voted numerous times… to spend money to build a barrier to try to prevent illegal immigrants from coming in. And I do think you have to control your borders.” -Hillary Clinton, 2008

Source: Campus Reform

So how did they react when they learned that it was prominent Democrats that had made those statements denouncing illegal immigration and calling for a ‘barrier’ at the border?

Watch the video and find out:

Some of those students were so shocked that Democrats could hold those views.

Now that we’re judging people and determining whether or not they should be permitted to do their job based on comments made in the past, I think that means re-election for Chuck Schumer is going to be pretty tough, Hillary’s 2020 dreams can finallybe sidelined, and Barry’s inevitable stint as the Secretary-General of the U.N. may not be so inevitable.

I guess that also means that there won’t be any statues in their honor in the near future, amirite?

No, wait. They’re Democrats, so they get a free pass to ‘evolve’ on their positions.

But really, this is no ‘evolution’ — this is pandering to the #ResistTrump! base.

Good luck with that.

BACKFIRE: David Hogg Responds To Trump’s Immigration Speech, Gets Blasted Online

H/T Right Wing Folks.

In trying to stay relevant Little Davy Camera Hoog keeps embarrassing himself and proving just who irrelevant he really is.

Responding to President Trump’s address on Tuesday night, famed historian and immigration expert David Hogg, who was admitted to Harvard University despite the fact that he reportedly got a score of 1270 out of 1600 on the SAT, while the bottom 25% of students admitted had an average score of 1460, decided to weigh in on Twitter, pontificating, “Reminder: No one is illegal on stolen land #TrumpAddress.”

Hogg does have a history of making rather outrageous remarks; last July he mocked President Trump’s tweet in which Trump warned Iranian president Rouhani not to threaten the United States, Trump wrote, “To Iranian President Rouhani: NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE. WE ARE NO LONGER A COUNTRY THAT WILL STAND FOR YOUR DEMENTED WORDS OF VIOLENCE & DEATH. BE CAUTIOUS!”

Hogg tweeted the message to President Trump, ignoring the fact that he was threatening a sitting president, “To US President Trump: NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE. WE ARE NO LONGER A COUNTRY THAT WILL STAND FOR YOUR DEMENTED WORDS OF VIOLENCE & DEATH. BE CAUTIOUS!”

Last August, Hogg decided to wield his gun expertise by tweeting that the “NRA is pulling strings to increase gun sales in a record low year.”

David Hogg

@davidhogg111

So we can’t

-afford textbooks for our children
-regularly fund inner-city schools
-pay our teachers a livable salary
-have free public college

Yet, we can arm teachers sounds like the @NRA is pulling strings to increase gun sales in a record low year.

That claim was debunked by Stephen Gutkowski of The Washington Free Beacon on Twitter.

Hogg’s habit of making pithy statements that make no sense also included this gem about gun control back in November: “Imagine saying the only way to stop shark attacks is with more sharks.”

David Hogg

@davidhogg111

Imagine saying the only way to stop shark attacks is with more sharks.

29.2K people are talking about this

The Daily Wire’s Ashe Schow responded to that:

If we took Hogg’s analogy to its logical conclusion for gun-control activists, the picture gets pretty silly. It also illustrates the problems with gun-control arguments. Banning sharks, as many activists want for guns, would mean killing sharks or – gasp – building a wall to keep them out of our waters. Putting severe restrictions on sharks wouldn’t work either, as sharks aren’t going to listen. Maybe we could put up signs that say “Shark-Free Zone,” to keep the sharks from being around people. Maybe we could do background checks on sharks to see which ones have committed shark crimes previously and keep only them away from our shores. Maybe we could pass laws against shark attacks, and then pass more laws against shark attacks if they don’t stop.

Hogg’s new tweet about “stolen land” engendered a flurry of responses:

Jeremy Boreing@JeremyDBoreing

Stolen from whom?

The land on which I was born was stolen from the Apache — by the Comanche. I’m sure you can trace that lineage of conquest back ten thousand years to the Clovis people.

Statements like Hogg’s imply a reductionist racism — as though POC are all the same. Gross
