The government of Slovakia has said it will take in struggling migrants from Syria and other countries under a European Union scheme to share the burden of 40,000 new arrivals to the continent, but stipulated it will only be taking Christians, and not Muslims.
"We want to help Europe with the migration issue. We could take 800 Muslims but we don't have any mosques in Slovakia so how can Muslims be integrated if they are not going to like it here?" interior ministry spokesman Ivan Metik said, arguing that the policy is not discriminatory.
"We want to really help Europe with this migration wave, but … we are only a transit country and the people don't want to stay in Slovakia," he added. more >>

While short of an official endorsement, Sarah Palin was effusive in her praise for GOP frontrunner Donald Trump, claiming the celebrity billionaire is in touch with working class "Joe Six Pack" values. "I am so happy that he is running," she said.
Appearing on Fox's On The Record with Greta Van Susteren Tuesday, Palin was asked if she was endorsing the candidate and billionaire business leader:
"Here's the deal Greta, he's the best thing to happen to the permanent political class since the beauty of the Tea Party genuine movement rose up and shined light on crony capitalism, and then pulled the rug right out from under the status quo politicians who just kind of embrace the permanent political class," said Palin. more >>
A bill introduced in the Canadian Province of Quebec seeks to curtail "hate speech" and may go as so far as to suppress and target individuals critical of Islam and other protected groups.
Bill 59, which was introduced in Quebec's National Assembly in June, declares in its introduction its purpose "to prevent and combat hate speech and speech inciting violence."
Canada currently has prohibitions against hate speech in its criminal code but this legislation allows for greater investigative power and authority for the Quebec Human Rights Commission, with first offenders of "hate speech" being fined $1000 to $10,000 and repeat offenders facing fines as high as $20,000. more >>
The Center for Medical Progress' seventh video highlighting the aborted baby parts compensation practices of Planned Parenthood alleges that the abortion giant and its former partnering company StemExpress have harvested an intact brain from a gestated fetus whose heart was still beating.

O'Donnell recalled that she was in a Planned Parenthood clinic one day when a doctor had just finished with an abortion and took the aborted baby into a pathology lab. Moments later, a senior StemExpress technician named Jessica called Holly to come into the room so that she could show her how to procure an intact brain. more >>
A two term governor of Florida and a son and brother of former presidents, Jeb Bush officially announced his own quest for the White House at Miami Dade College in June. Generally perceived as fluent in Spanish and appreciated by Latinos, proponents of Bush are quick to claim that the skill is a valuable trait for the general election against Democrats.

A new CNN Poll released Tuesday shows Jeb Bush in second place at 13 percent, well behind Donald Trump who is currently polling almost a quarter (24 percent) of the Republican vote. more >>
