    Globalist killed by illegal immigrant

    Man who slammed President Trump for ‘racialist’ immigration policies killed by illegal immigrant

    A close acquaintance of Ramirez Valiente, who asked to have her identity protected for her safety, told ABC 7 Denver that Ramirez Valiente is “an alcoholic and an abuser.” He was also arrested for reckless endangerment in 2011 and domestic violence in 2016.

    When Sean Buchanan first started his years of publicly advocating on behalf of asylum-seekers, he must not have never imagined his life would be put to an end by an illegal alien, who avoided deportation by hiding in a local “sanctuary church.”

    • “who avoided deportation by hiding in a local “sanctuary church.””

      You know when all the advocates of the same here, push 4,000 of them into Fairfield, and 10 of them live in Balmain….ultimately some of those 4,000 find themselves in Balmain.

      Violence is everywhere

      • “Roughly one woman a week is murdered by their current or former partner.”

        In a population of 25 million, 52 people doesn’t indicate an epidemic.

    • they are not behind the curve
      recessions are good for capitalism, they fix many of the failures of the system and allow the economy to recover faster

      ECB is in always in front of the curve so the economy never really recovers from the recession

    • Looking at that, Avalon and Middle Cove could sure do with some 30 story Meriton apartment buildings to add to the vibrancy. It looks sleepy and mono-cultured.

      • I know. Where are the cultural centres/boxing gyms to help get the troubled youth off the streets?

        They must really be ashamed of their white picket fence bland monoculture.

        • it rolls off the tongue….

          CastleCrag Mosque
          Allambie Heights Sri Sita Ram temple
          Warringah Global Islamic Youth Centre

          The vibrancy the north shore needs.
