a muslim peace truck just made an appearance in germany.
the peace wagon was loaded with explosives and peacefully struck 23 individuals in a crowd, the driver then sent himself to heaven to collect his virgins
Same article says they don't think it was an act of terrorism. Disgruntled worker or some such.
Think they misplaced plutonium, rather than whole ICBMs. What's the half-life of plutonium?
I suspect the truth is that it wasn't "misplaced" so much as clandestinely sold to another state actor, or we would have at least seen some dirty bombs by now.
Suicide martyrs weren't a thing in islam until the Iran/Iraq war, actually. Until the Ayotla set that precedent, that was just suicide. Then Hafez al-Assad, freshly betrayed by Henry Kissinger, was the first to take that same precedent and set it directly against the west, and it worked out perfectly for him, causing Reagan to pull out of Lebanon - even if it did come to bite him in the ass later.
Not that suicide bombers in general didn't exist before then, this is just the first time you see the islamic religion used to justify it. Irish Catholics were pretty fond of the tactic before then, among others.
Muslims are not supposed to commit suicide it goes against the quran. Also explosives go against the Sunnah because it is fire. There are some extremist scholars who try to misguide muslims, but it is written clearly. The true Muslims follow the messanger of Allah and the quran only.
>What is it that created muslim extremism?
Western countries, particularly the US, have been backing right-wing religious fundamentalist muslims against more left-wing, secular ones and the USSR for ages. Just a few decades ago there were newspaper articles praising Bin Laden of all people as a "freedom fighter", while Ronald Reagan described the Mujahadeen as "the moral equivalents of America's founding fathers". Even one of the Rambo movies was dedicated to them iirc
Hell, even now those same countries are perfectly happy to work with Saudi Arabia, the source of Islamic extremism, because it's profitable for them to do so and allows them to maintain economic hegemony via the petrodollar.
Not that its relevant to this thread considering the guy was a German and not a muslim...
London Mayor Unveils New Stop-And-Frisk Police Policy To Enforce City-Wide Knife Ban
Let me be clear - there is no reason to carry a knife. To anyone who does - they will be caught, and they will feel the full force of the law. 35 people have been charged for murder offences occurring during 2018 so far.
“We need communities, families, friends and neighbours to give us the information we need to bring these criminals to justice.”
And I believe in your right to call me as much. Shame your police forces wouldn't be so open minded. But what are they going to do, actually shut down child prostitution rings? Naw, making sure you don't call them names on social media is clearly a higher priority. Unless you're brown, cause that's pretty much a free pass.

A conservative commentator who sent a violent and vulgar tweet saying he would use "a hot poker" to sexually assault a 17-year-old survivor of a Florida high school shooting has resigned from a St. Louis TV station after several advertisers withdrew from his show. KDNL-TV has canceled "The Allman Report" and accepted Jamie Allman's resignation, according to a brief statement from Ronn Torossian, a spokesman for the Sinclair Broadcast Group, which operates the TV station.
"His show is canceled and he is off the air immediately," Torossian said in the statement, according to CBS St. Louis affiliate KMOV-TV.
Before the show's launch in January 2015, KDNL-TV touted it as a nontraditional newscast with a conservative spin.
Allman's also off the radio airwaves. Entercom spokeswoman Esther-Mireya Tejeda said Tuesday that his show on KFTK-FM has been taken off the air while the company "looks into the matter." Entercom has been operating KFTK-FM since last month. The station previously was owned by Emmis Communications.
Allman was absent Monday from his radio show. He hasn't responded to messages from the Associated Press seeking comment.
Several businesses pulled advertising from Allman's shows after he sent the March 26 tweet targeting David Hogg. Allman's Twitter account was "locked" shortly after he sent the tweet, restricting access to his account, but a screenshot of it has been widely circulated on social media.
Hogg has strongly advocated for stricter gun control since 17 people were killed in the Feb. 14 mass shooting at his school in Parkland, Florida.
The teenager's willingness to take on the cause has made him a target for some conservatives.
Fox News Channel's Laura Ingraham tweeted Hogg had whined about not getting in to some colleges he had applied for.
Hogg responded by suggesting that people offended by Ingraham's remark contact her advertisers.
How can you sexually assault someone through the ass with a hot poker? None of those things are sexual organs. Anal sex is a human construct therefore the idea of it being sexual exists only in our minds. He wants to abuse him in a deaming and harmful way, not sexualize him. That article is fake news
britain-russia-chemicalweapons/ex-r ussian-spy-poisoned-with-nerve-agen t-watchdog-confirms-idUSKBN1HJ1LZ?f eedType=RSS&feedName=worldNews&utm_ source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&u tm_campaign=Feed%3A+Reuters%2Fworld News+%28Reuters+World+News%29
>THE HAGUE/LONDON (Reuters) - The lethal poison that struck down a former Russian spy and his daughter last month in England was a highly pure type of Novichok nerve agent, the global chemical weapons watchdog concluded on Thursday, backing Britain’s findings.
>Sergei Skripal, a former colonel in Russian military intelligence who betrayed dozens of agents to Britain’s MI6 foreign spy service, and his daughter Yulia were found unconscious on a bench in the cathedral city of Salisbury on March 4.
>Britain blamed Russia for the poisoning and Prime Minister Theresa May said that the Skripals had been attacked with a military-grade nerve agent from the Novichok group of poisons, developed by the Soviet Union in the 1970s and 80s.
>Moscow denied any involvement and suggested Britain had carried out the attack to stoke anti-Russian hysteria, but Britain asked the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) to check samples from Salisbury.
>Testing by four laboratories affiliated with the global chemical weapons watchdog confirmed Britain’s findings and showed that the toxic chemical was “of high purity”.
>The OPCW did not explicitly name Novichok in its published summary, say where the poison may have come from or assign blame for the attack. But it did confirm Britain’s analysis about the substance that had been used.
>“The results of analysis by OPCW-designated laboratories of environmental and biomedical samples collected by the OPCW team confirm the findings of the United Kingdom relating to the identity of the toxic chemical,” the published summary said.
>Testing by OPCW laboratories, the details of which were kept confidential, also found the substance used in Salisbury to be of “a high purity”, which supports the British government’s assertion that a state was involved.
>Responding to the summary, Moscow said that it had reason to think the report was part of a British operation to discredit Russia. Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Moscow would not believe any conclusions about the poisoning unless Russian experts were given access to the investigation.
>The toxin attack prompted the biggest Western expulsion of Russian diplomats since the Cold War as allies in Europe and the United States sided with May’s view that Moscow was either responsible or had lost control of the nerve agent.
>Moscow has hit back by expelling Western diplomats, questioning how Britain knows that Russia was responsible and suggesting it stemmed from a plot by British secret services.
>Russia has said it does not have such nerve agents and President Vladimir Putin said it was nonsense to think that Moscow would have poisoned the Skripals. A police officer was also taken ill after attending the scene.
>British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson hailed the findings. “There can be no doubt what was used and there remains no alternative explanation about who was responsible – only Russia has the means, motive and record,” Johnson said.
>A German Foreign Ministry spokesman said the OPCW confirmed Britain’s analysis. “It is now up to Russia to finally play a constructive role and answer the open questions,” he said.
>Juergen Hardt, foreign policy spokesman for Chancellor Angela Merkel’s conservatives, said the report provided certainty that the Skripals were poisoned by Novichok.
>“This finding massively increases the pressure on Moscow to fully explain the exact course of events and background of the first nerve agent attack on European soil,” he said.
>The poisoning of Skripal, who settled in Britain in 2010 after being released by Moscow in a spy swap, shows “how reckless Russia is prepared to be”, the head of Britain’s GCHQ spy agency said on Thursday.
>Yulia Skripal, who was released from hospital on Monday, said in a statement she was still suffering effects of the poisoning and her father remained seriously ill. She said she had declined an offer of assistance from the Russian Embassy. [L8N1RO6G7]
>Zakharova also challenged Britain to prove the Skripals were not being held hostage, noting that no one except British authorities had seen either of them for over a month.
>There are several variants of Novichok, a binary weapon containing two less-toxic chemicals that, when mixed, react to produce a poison several times more lethal than sarin or VX.
> Russia’s ambassador to Britain, Alexander Yakovenko, has identified the alleged poison as Novichok A-234, derived from an earlier version known as A-232.
>Britain has said the use of such an obscure poison indicates Moscow was either to blame or had lost control over its nerve agents.
>“The high purity of the substance will strengthen the UK’s position that the agent was made by a highly proficient team and in a well refined process,” said Alastair Hay, Professor Emeritus of Environmental Toxicology at Britain’s University of Leeds.
>The laboratory results, which came in on Wednesday night, were to be circulated to OPCW member states on Thursday. The results will be debated at an emergency OPCW session next Wednesday, to be convened at Britain’s request.
Wake up people!!!
We are more powerful than one would think.
Are you sick of Trump who provokes the world?
Are you against nuclear winter?
Do you want future children without genetic disorders?
You can do your own warfare and it's very easy.
Do not buy any american product for 2 or 3 months. That's gonna lead to american economy collapse.
They are making decisions without asking us, we have the right to make it over. And it's a peaceful way without using any weapons.
Spread the words.
Let there be peace on this planet!
Hillary Clinton's Value Plunges As She Suffers 90% Cut In Speech Fee
Paid $7,000 less than Snooki for speech.
When last we saw Hillary Clinton, she was blaming women across America for being subservient to their husbands and voting for Donald Trump.
Oh, and falling down some stairs in India -- twice. And breaking her wrist (she's now wearing a cast on her right arm after "slipping in the bathtub").
But Hillary's back in the states now and, as it turns out, her value has plummeted.
The 2016 loser used to charge $250,000 for speaking engagements, back when people thought the former Secretary of State might be sweeping into the White House. That fee dropped 90% this week when she spoke at Rutgers University for just $25,000 (and we know "just" is a relative term).
she's a symbol of how detached politicians reality is from average american voters
funny how evangelical christian pretty much means white supremist
haven't seen shit from the democrates lately - the republicans might as well make the 2020 candidates Trump and Storm Daniels as the VP
>The GOP should run a black woman
If you can find any black female Republican who has or had high enough state or federal office to run, let us know. I can only find two: Condi Rice (who vehemently resisted drafts of every level in 2008, 2012, and 2016) and Janice Rogers Brown (who as a former Appellate Judge would be the least qualified person since Trump and Taylor).
>who has or had high enough state or federal office to run
Yes, just look at all that time Trump spent in high office gathering the political experience the job truly requires.
Oh, wait. (Seriously, why is this office's only qualification is that you lived to be 35?)
Real problem is they could never get their base to rally behind a black woman. Even a black man is extremely dicey. The president pretty much has to be someone America feels they can have a beer with, or they can't get elected - unless their opponent is even less charismatic.
Still, might change if the Democrats run Oprah.

It Begins: California Senator Introduces Bill to Kill Free Speech, Requires State-Sanctioned Fact Checkers to Approve Online Content
Richard Pan is a far left California state senator.
Pan recently introduced legislation to crack down on free speech on the internet.
Pan’s legislation would force online publishers to utilize state-sanctioned fact checkers to approve content before it is posted online.
Jon Rappaport reported:
The bill is titled “SB1424 Internet: social media: false information: strategic plan.”
It targets social media based in California. But as you read the bill, you see it appears to define social media as any Internet blog, website, or communication.
SB1424 is brief. Read it:
>FCC: Cable television system operators generally make their own selection of channels and programs to be distributed to subscribers in response to consumer demands. The Commission does, however, have rules in some areas that are applicable to programming -- called "origination cablecasting" in the rules -- that are subject to the editorial control of the cable system operator. The rules generally do not apply to the content of broadcast channels or to access channels over which the cable system operator has no editorial control.
Less about it being free, more about the viewer specifically requesting the content, rather than being randomly assaulted with.
Though you do have to enter the URL, so even though it is free, it could be considered requested. Then again, the way Congress pulled Zuckerberg into court, as if Facebook is some sorta public utility people had to use to live, that could go either way.
On the other hand, the FCC *does* regulate cable providers in a lot of different ways ("equal opportunities" clause, political advertising rate restrictions, child advertising restrictions, notification and identification, variations of the slander exposure rules, editorial rules, various advertising restrictions unique to cable, sponsorship identification, etc. etc.)
> > It still only applies to broadcasters, cable tv networks for example can show what they want without restriction.
> The rules generally do not apply to the content of broadcast channels or to access channels over which the cable system operator has no editorial control.
So like I said; cable can do as it pleases because it's not broadcast over the air.
I live in Ryan's district, it's unlikely to swing. Though Ryan never had a real opponent, just Democrats running for the sake of running. Last opponent Ryan had got more media coverage from cleaning a toilet, actually serious about that, than all of the rest of his campaign combined.
>If Trump finds a way to fuck things up further or the economy starts tanking ever after all the unnecessary adrenaline shots he gave it. And assuming the Russians won't hack the elections (Because Republicans refuse to do anything to secure them and are still trying to defund agencies that are in charge of election security.) you'll be looking a blue typhoon
Be careful with your assumptions. Overconfidence fucks over the Democratic Party all the time. The supposed blue wave may depress D votes, while scaring Rs to the polls. Republicans are already feeling fucked, and for them, voting is a matter of survival, not just politics.
>A pro gun Democratic party that dropped the ridiculous nanny state
So, libertarians. In other words, in our 2 party system Americans get to choose center-right or far-right.
>and SJW policies
Which policies does the Democratic party support that could be considered social justice warrior? They barely support a right to conventional healthcare.
>Seattle is looking at road tolls for downtown streets as part of a broader initiative to reduce congestion and greenhouse gas emissions, Mayor Jenny Durkan announced Wednesday.
>Durkan provided few specifics on the tolling proposal at a news conference, but she said the city's transportation department is currently studying possible congestion pricing strategies to ease traffic through the downtown core.
>"We know it's a heavy lift that we'll have to engage people deeply before doing that," Durkan said. "And we have to make sure that it is paired with meaningful transit because we can't ask people to get out of their single-occupancy vehicles unless there are meaningful options they have, whether that is buses, walking, bikes, or other public transit."
I like that idea, but getting a business-only tax through our city council just... isn't going to happen the way we want it to. Just like the bag fee and the beverage tax, it won't encourage businesses to fix the problems, only offload 100% of the costs to the citizens.
But hey, if we want to reduce congestion, just ban drivers that aren't working in the city from traveling in it. I mean, sure, it'll have massive econmomic consequence, but it'll get the job done.
-now/teacher-presses-charges-after- autistic-8yearold-punches-her-polic e-say/729452546
>An autistic 8-year-old boy is facing a battery charge after his special education teacher filed a police report after he punched her, according to reports.
>Police said the student hit the teacher in the face when she tried to take an iPad away from him, according to KRQE.
>“I was not made aware that a police report had been filed against D.J.," the boy’s mother Maria McKay told KRQE. "Very shocking. Definitely was not prepared for a missed phone call from juvenile probation that my 8-year-old autistic child had failed to appear for a scheduled meeting. I called back and assured him there was a mistake.”
>Turns out it was not an error.
>"There was an incident in early March where a 2nd-grade student punched a staff member,” school officials said in a statement. “We cannot speak to student or personnel matters, but I can say that the school did not initiate the police report. In addition, we cannot prevent a staff member from personally filing a report. That is his or her right."
>McKay said her son’s actions were not right but thinks the teacher should have handled the situation better.
>"When he is in an environment that's really loud he starts wailing hands and he has hit in the past,” she said. “We've talked about it's not OK to hit people and we need to come up with ways to better communicate with each other because hitting is not OK. He does understand that after the fact but he doesn't understand that in that situation.”
>Her son did not go to school last week and likely will stay out of the classroom as his case navigates the legal system, according to KRQE.
>“I just felt this is not an environment that my son should return to,” McKay said. “He now has to appear at juvenile probation next week for an appointment. He is absolutely terrified.”
You're right; kids don't usually beat up teachers. Kids are often immature brats, though, so you shouldn't be spending so much time blaming them as you have to be making sure they learn better. Suing the kid('s parents) for something there are other ways of handling is fucking extreme.
A family in Colorado is outraged after two men, who were accused of gang-raping a 13-year-old girl with their brothers and cousins, were only sentenced to probation.
Tommy Williams, 20, and Clarence Williams, 19, were each sentenced on Tuesday to a minimum of 10 years of sex offender intensive supervised probation, with a maximum of life on probation, KKTV reported.
The men are two of six suspects accused of sexually assaulting the young teen in December 2016 inside of the Stonebrook Terrace apartment complex in Colorado Springs.
The victim's grandfather was shocked at the sentencing, telling the news station: "There was six of them and they gang-raped my granddaughter."
The group of suspects — some of whom are reportedly related as cousins or brothers and identified as Jacolby Williams, Tyron Williams, James Williams, and a juvenile, in addition to Tommy and Clarence — were with the girl on Dec. 19, according to The Gazette.
he victim told police she knew one of the men, and he invited her into the apartment to play video games. The 13-year-old said she went to the home with some female friends, but they left when she went to the bathroom.
Arrest records, KKTV reported, state that two of the men then pulled the teen from the bathroom and forced her into a bedroom where the other four suspects were waiting.
In January 2017, Tyron Williams was also sentenced to 10 years to life of sex offender intense supervised probation. Before his sentencing, he apologized to the victim and her family, and reportedly said that "If I knew she was underage, it wouldn't have happened in the first place."
James Williams was sentenced in August 2016 to five years of probation, and the unidentified juvenile reportedly has an impending court date. Jacolby Williams' trial was scheduled for March 5; it's unclear what transpired.

President Trump on Thursday plans to announce at least $50 billion worth of annual tariffs and other penalties on China for its theft of technology and trade secrets, which administration officials say has robbed American companies of billions of dollars in revenue and killed thousands of jobs.
The measures would mark Mr. Trump’s most aggressive move yet against a fast-rising economic rival that he has accused of preying on the United States.
President Obama wanted to go after China for their unfair trade practices as well. I think this is a case of people being against anything trump does. You can disagree with the methods he is using, but this should have been done years ago. Robert Kuttner has a good book out and has done some great interviews explaining the problems for those of you who are blinded by trump rage. He doesn't like trump, but everything they are saying about the situation is true.
China‘s ambassador has firmly rejected a key pillar of the Trudeau government‘s trade agenda, branding its attempts to entrench labour standards in a free trade pact as a non-starter for his country.
Ambassador Lu Shaye said Tuesday that Canada’s “so-called” progressive trade agenda has no place in the free trade agreement the two countries have been pursuing in fits and starts for several years.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has been unable to persuade China’s leaders to formally entrench labour, gender, environment and governance issues in the negotiating framework of the free trade talks.
Trudeau spent four days in China in December but left without a formal commitment to moving the free trade talks past the exploratory phase into formal negotiations.
>electing a drama teacher to run a country because he offers you weed
If Trudeau and the moronic SJWs didn't try to force all kinda stupid shit like feminism and homosexuality down China's throat, they might have had better luck getting the labor rights issues resolved. You know, something that actually fucking matters...
