    You're right, Q, the flooring is definitely different. It was reported that two mosques were targeted. Looks like some sort of training video.

    New Zealand to Broadcast Muslim Call to Prayer Friday as #HeadScarfforHarmony Campaign Urges Non-Muslim Women to Wear Hijab



    Prime Minister Jacinda Ahern announced New Zealand will broadcast the Muslim call to prayer across the nation on TV and radio Friday.

    That same day New Zealand women are being encouraged to wear the Islamic head covering on Friday in sympathy with Muslims in the wake of the mass shooting terror attack by white eco-nationalist Brenton Tarrant at two Christchurch mosques last Friday that killed 50 and wounded dozens.

    THIS FRIDAY, 22 March, you're invited to wear a headscarf or head covering at work, school, or play – to peacefully show your support for the New Zealand Muslim community at this time. #headscarfforharmony pic.twitter.com/geKkT1FExJ

    The campaign to wear the hijab on Friday is calling it a headscarf and bears the name and hashtag #headscarfforharmony.


    The idea was born out of reports Muslim women in New Zealand were expressing fear of wearing the hijab in public, reported the New Zealand news site Stuff:







    …The idea came from Thaya Ashman, a Mt Eden GP, who has a long-standing affinity with Muslim communities since her time volunteering as a doctor in Afghanistan.


    “I heard the story of a frightened woman hiding at home, too scared to go out onto the street as she felt her headscarf identified her as a target for terrorism. I wanted to say ‘we are with you, we want you to feel at home on your own streets, we love, support and respect you’.”


    Representatives of the Muslim community have endorsed the idea and are deeply touched.


    …Kiwis are encouraged to get together with friends and workmates, takes photos at work, school or play, and share it on social media with the hashtag #headscarfforharmony.

    One News Now reported several similar hijab campaigns are planned for Friday in New Zealand.


    A number of events have been planned by separate groups.


    The Islamic Women’s Council have told the organiser of the Scarves in Solidarity event, Raewyn Rasch, that it is an “amazing idea”.



    Ms Rasch said the event is open to everyone in New Zealand and is a “symbolic gesture”.



    Headscarf for Harmony is another event planned for Friday, inviting Kiwis to wear a headscarf or head covering at “work, school or play”.



    Another event, called Wear a Headscarf Friday, is aimed at women in the Christchurch region and had been supported by the New Zealand Muslim Association. Thousands have expressed interest in the events on Facebook.

    The Headscarf for Harmony campaign is receiving criticism from Muslim women opposed to the hijab.

    NYU Hires Leftist Who Falsely Accused ICE Agent of Having Nazi Tattoo As New Journalism Professor


    Social justice warriors hijacking journalism to advance far-left agenda





    New York University has hired a new journalism professor — a leftist fired by The New Yorker for falsely accusing an ICE agent of sporting a Nazi tattoo.



    Talia Lavin will teach the undergraduate course “Reporting on the Far Right” in the fall semester of 2019 at NYU’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute.



    Lavin made headlines last June after she accused wheelchair-bound ICE agent Justin Gaertner of having a Nazi Iron Cross tattoo over his left elbow. She later deleted her tweet after learning that the tattoo in question turned out to be a Maltese Cross — a symbol used by veterans who fought abroad.


    She “resigned” from The New Yorker shortly thereafter, and was later hired by Soros-backed far-left organization Media Matters.

    One journalism student called out NYU’s decision to hire a hardcore social justice warrior to teach a journalism class.




    “I sympathize with Lavin’s politics, but I don’t know why someone who had to quit their journalism job for falsely implying someone is a Nazi should be teaching at NYU,” said the student.


    “I know there are plenty of reporters out there in need of work who haven’t made a mistake like that.”


    It appears NYU has also failed to be transparent about Lavin’s leftist ideology.


    “Neither Lavin’s three-year tenure at the New Yorker nor her stint at Media Matters are mentioned on her official NYU faculty bio,” TheWrap reported Wednesday.

    UK: Cops Now Knocking on Doors to Police Free Speech


    Man questioned over comment about Brexit



    A man in the UK received a home visit from two police officers over an online comment he made about Brexit and was told to be “mindful” about his language, despite the officers admitting that he hadn’t broken any law.
    A video of the visit shows the man challenging the police officers as to why they were at his door.


    While officers failed to point out precisely what the man said that prompted the visit, one of them made reference to “some comment that you said you were going to drag someone out of an office.”


    “I’m not saying you can’t use it or you shouldn’t use it, I’m just asking you to be mindful about what you’re putting on there, in case it’s deemed as inciting,” said the officer.


    Free Speech Is Dead in Britain!


    UK "Thought Police Unit" came to a man's house to warn him about his use of "Free Speech" – Discussing BREXIT might soon be illegal!?


    Mayor Khan assigned 900 officers to ‘hate crime’ duty, which requires monitoring “speech”!#TuesdayThoughts pic.twitter.com/R9679wmp8D
    — Amy Mek (@AmyMek) March 19, 2019


    The officer acknowledged the man “had every right to do that” and had not violated the law.


    The man attempted to explain to the officers that if Brexit was sabotaged, his comments would pale in comparison to the reaction of other Brits and that the whole country would be “enflamed”.


    Earlier this year, we highlighted the story of a man who was investigated by Humberside Police and told to “check” his thinking after he liked a limerick on Twitter which made fun of transgenderism.


    53-year-old Harry Miller was told that transgender people might not be safe at his place of work after authorities contacted his boss.


    In another example, a 74-year-old woman who wrote a blog in which she stated, “Gender is BS. Pass it on,” received a call from the police.


    The mother of a 10-year-old autistic son and a 20 month old baby was also arrested by three police officers in her home for the “crime” of misgendering someone on Twitter.


    Meanwhile, in a related story, a Catholic journalist in the UK is under police investigation because she “misgendered a trans person on Twitter” and referred to a woman’s trans daughter using the wrong pronoun.

    Mexican thieves rob US border fence wire and use it to secure homes



    Enterprising Mexican thieves south of the US border fence have stolen some of its barbed wire and used it to fortify homes in Tijuana, a local police chief said. Catching the thieves in the act has proven difficult.


    President Donald Trump ordered the security fence separating San Diego from Tijuana topped with razor-sharp concertina wire back in November, as the United States braced for the arrival of multiple ‘caravans’ of illegal immigrants. “No climbers anymore under our administration,” he boasted.

    Several months later, sections of the wire are missing, and are turning up on people’s homes in Tijuana, police chief Marco Antonio Sotomayor Amezcua told local news outlet Milenio.


    “We know about the theft of barbed wire because United States authorities have requested our help,” Sotomayor said. The chief explained that the wire is stronger, sharper, and of better quality than anything sold in Mexican stores, a thumbs up of sorts for Trump’s beloved American manufacturing industry.


    But, in the spirit of the “innocent until proven guilty” principle, the police chief added that they couldn’t help their American colleagues as the thieves usually manage to slip away from the fence before his officers arrive on the scene.


    Meanwhile, footage from Mexican television shows the Tijuana houses newly wired-up.

    US contractors were busy at work replacing the missing sections of wire on Monday morning, the Los Angeles Times reported. Its reporters saw homes just feet away on the Mexican side decked out in what appeared to be freshly-stolen barbed wire.


    Unsurprisingly, none of the residents were keen to explain where their new home security upgrades came from.


    Reynaldo González Mora of Tijuana’s border liaison unit has said that 15 to 20 suspects, all of them Mexican citizens, have been arrested over the wire theft thus far.


    “Most were people who have been deported from the United States, and people who have problems with drug addiction and live mostly on the street,” González told the Los Angeles Times.

    Attorney General Bill Barr Decides to Keep DAG Rod Rosenstein in DOJ ‘A Little Longer’



    Attorney General Bill Barr decided to keep Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in the DOJ ‘a little longer.’



    Rosenstein was supposed to step down from his position as Deputy Attorney General in mid-March, however, after discussing his planned departure with AG Bill Barr, it was decided he would stay on “a little longer,” although specifics were not given, reported NBC News.


    Rosenstein and Mueller took over the Justice Department in May of 2017 after then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from the Russia investigation and anything to do with Hillary Clinton.







    Rod Rosenstein appointed Robert Mueller as special counsel on May 17th, 2017 to investigate whether Donald Trump conspired with the Russians during the 2016 election, however the investigation is nothing but an unconstitutional witch hunt of Trump, his family and his associates.


    Rosenstein wrote a ‘scope memo’ giving Mueller the authority to go on a never ending fishing expedition — the scope memo is still redacted and hidden from investigators because Rosenstein obstructed oversight.


    Tom Fitton blasted Bill Barr, Rod Rosenstein and Robert Mueller in an appearance on Fox Business Tuesday night.


    “It seems to me that Mueller is still running the Justice Department and the Attorney General has got to take back control of his Justice Department,” Fitton said. “Rod Rosenstein and Mueller have been working closely together on this abusive investigation targeting President Trump.”



    Fitton added, “Rosenstein is responsible for obstruction of a Congressional investigations — covering up every which way he can…and it’s just remarkable to me that the Attorney General continues to have him in place in this position of power.”
