HAHAHA THIS IS PURE GOLD! Let me just say this.. other country's immigration laws are freaking AIR TIGHT! A great example is Iceland. It is extremely difficult, almost impossible, for anyone that isn't from Iceland or Europe directly to move & live in Iceland. Are they racist? Absolutely not. They value their citizens and want to ensure their financial and economic success. They put the people of their country FIRST because isn't that what a strong and logical leader is supposed to do? The "planet has no borders" argument doesn't apply because HELLO, humanity has chosen to abide by this matrix system--if you don't like it then you should start taking action in dismantling it. @realdonaldtrump simply wants people to migrate LEGALLY.. apparently that's unjust? 🤷🏻♀️

Toronto, Canada. On Saturday, October 21st an anti-Trudeau rally was held at Toronto City Hall. Although everyone that attended the rally both on the left and right have problems with Trudeau’s handling of the government, the protesters on the right of the political spectrum were a sight to behold. Among their ranks were The Proud Boys, a nationalistic, alt-right group founded by Gavin McInnis the co-founder of Vice. Sons of Odin were there as well, a biker gang with ties to the alt-right and white supremacy groups. ‘M.A.G.A.’ hats were everywhere as well as pro-Trump shirts. These groups are trying to bring American style nationalism and ideology to Canada, which is scary and hilarious at the same time. Pictured here a man in a Trump mask sits upon the shoulders of a street preacher and gestures to the leftwing, anti-racist protestors.
Roughly a year after racist graffiti at Eastern Michigan University triggered campus protests and an FBI investigation, law enforcement has charged a black former EMU student with malicious destruction of property, identity theft, and using computers to commit a crime.
Twenty-nine year-old Eddie Curlin, who attended EMU from 2014 through early 2016 and is currently serving time for receiving stolen property, was arraigned for the EMU charges today, according to The Detroit News.
In September of last year, Curlin allegedly had scrawled “KKK” with the phrase “Leave NI**ERS” under it in the courtyard of EMU’s King Hall, and a month later followed it up with the same phrase on a wall at Ford Hall. He also is implicated in a racist message found in a bathroom at Sherzer Hall last spring.
The September incident resulted in a protest by Black Lives Matter which drew approximately 100 people. A $10,000 reward was offered for information about the epithets, and led to university president Jim Smith stating the usual:
There is no place on our campus for these kinds of hateful actions and I am deeply angry and saddened that it occurred. […] Our police officers continue to investigate the incidents in late September. They have responded to many tips and continue to actively pursue them. …
The deeper and systemic issues that are behind these incidents continue to be a focus for our student leaders, our faculty, our administration and all who care about this institution and the welfare of our students. […] These incidents run counter to the values and mission of the University and our actions over the past several weeks and going forth have and will continue to reflect that.

Marvin P. Bush, the president’s younger brother, was a principal in a company called Securacom that provided security for the World Trade Center, United Airlines, and Dulles International Airport. The company, Burns noted, was backed by KuwAm, a Kuwaiti-American investment firm on whose board Marvin Burns also served. [Utne]
According to its present CEO, Barry McDaniel, the company had an ongoing contract to handle security at the World Trade Center "up to the day the buildings fell down." The company lists as government clients "the U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, U.S Air force, and the Department of Justice," in projects that "often require state-of-the-art security solutions for classified or high-risk government sites." Stratesec (Securacom) differs from other security companies which separate the function of consultant from that of service provider. The company defines itself as a "single-source" provider of "end-to-end" security services, including everything from diagnosis of existing systems to hiring subcontractors to installing video and electronic equipment. It also provides armored vehicles and security guards.
The Dulles Internation contract is another matter. Dulles is regarded as "absolutely a sensitive airport," according to security consultant Wayne Black, head of a Florida-based security firm, due to its location, size, and the number of international carriers it serves.
Black has not heard of Stratesec, but responds that for one company to handle security for both airports and airlines is somewhat unusual. It is also delicate for a security firm serving international facilities to be so interlinked with a foreign-owned company: "Somebody knew somebody," he suggested, or the contract would have been more closely scrutinized.
