The rape of justice: Girl, 15, who was held as a sex slave by an Asian grooming gang and had a son conceived through rape tells how social services took her child - and even gave her attacker a say in the boy's future

It is a terrible ordeal for any mother to have go to court to fight for the future of her child, a torment made all the worse when the father has a history of abuse and violence.
For Sarah – not her real name – the stress was even greater. Because, in an impersonal courtroom, she was forced to sit barely six feet away from a man she thought was out of her life forever, a member of a ruthless Asian grooming gang that she says snatched her from a Tesco car park as a teenager and kept her as a sex slave for 12 years.

WATCH: White straight male tells Californians ‘I’m a black gay woman.’ The responses are hilarious.

California just became the first state to mandate female directors on their boards. A biological man who identifies as a woman just became a world champion in a women’s cycling event in California. Sounds like a complicated time to be a woman, especially in the Golden State.
Perhaps that’s why YouTuber Elijah Schaffer, born a straight white male, decided to identify as black gay woman, at least for a little while.
All decked out in his new identity, Schaffer headed to the beach to ask fellow Californians for their thoughts on gender fluidity, gender identity, and gender politics.
Their answers will surprise you.

Sarah Silverman did a blackface skit at one time — but did it get her ostracized from Hollywood?

Can you picture the left doing its best at this very moment to explain away, justify, or just flat out ignore blackface skits by celebrity darlings such as Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon in the wake of Megyn Kelly’s blackface comment that got her fired from NBC?

Not to stoke the fires of hypocrisy too much, but here are two other logs left-wingers can try to remove from their eyes.
Sarah Silverman
Comedian Sarah Silverman — known far and wide for her bevy of controversial statements, mostly directed at conservatives of different stripes — did the unthinkable years back when she put on blackface for her TV program. She has since regretted the move.

HS football player’s moving rendition of national anthem goes viral: ‘I’m proud of my country’

Jackson Dean, a high school football player from Gambrills, Maryland, went viral last week for his moving performance of the national anthem prior to a recent game.
What are the details?
In the now-viral video, Dean, a defensive end, performed a country version of “The Star-Spangled Banner” with just his voice and his guitar.
The rendition ended with his teammates — one of them running while flying the American flag — bursting through a handmade spirit banner, preparing to kick off the game.
You can watch the Dean’s original performance in the video below.

NBC Tries, Fails To Defend Itself After Sitting On Information That Undermined Kavanaugh Accusers (6 Pics)

Kate Snow interviewed Julie Swetnick on Oct. 1. Swetnick claimed in a sworn statement to her attorney, Michael Avenatti, that she saw Kavanaugh act aggressively toward women, spike punch with drugs to get women drunk, and line up outside of rooms to gang-rape women. On NBC, Swetnick walked back her most important claims: She didn’t see Kavanaugh spike any punch and she never saw men lined up to gang-rape women (they were just “huddled by doors).”

Synagogue shooting shows spread of anti-Semitism on the far right

Before opening fire on a synagogue full of people in Pittsburgh on Saturday, killing 11 and injuring six others, including four police officers, suspected gunman Robert Bowers reportedly yelled, “All Jews must die!”
The 48-year-old Bowers, who was taken into police custody after the shooting at the Tree of Life Congregation synagogue, is believed to have acted alone in what the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) said is “likely the deadliest attack on the Jewish community in the history of the United States.”

Here are 5 of the worst right-wing domestic terrorist attacks in the last 5 years

This week, a long list of high-profile Democrats have become the targets of explosive devices—including Bill and Hillary Clinton, Barack and Michelle Obama, billionaire investor George Soros, Rep. Maxine Waters, former Vice President Joe Biden and actor Robert De Niro. An explosive device was sent to former Attorney General Eric Holder as well (with Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s Florida office used as a return address), and a suspicious package addressed to former CIA Director John O. Brennan forced the evacuation of CNN’s Manhattan offices.

Wife Draws “Stick Nipples” to explain why she wakes up cranky. No really. (7 Photos)

Mattea and Kris Goff are the proud parents of two beautiful girls, Seleste, 5, and Aurora, 5 months old. After two kids, this whole baby rearing thing should be nothing new to the couple. Kris, however, couldn’t figure out why his wife was always so tired and cranky in the morning. You know, other than the whole screaming baby thing… So, Mattea decided to take advantage of her amateur artistic abilities to illustrate exactly what her nights are like and thus, why she’s not a morning person.

Facebook gets maximum fine over its big data scandal. It won't even notice

UK authorities have hit Facebook with the maximum possible fine over its Cambridge Analytica scandal. But the penalty is tiny.
The United Kingdom's Information Commissioner's Office announced the £500,000 ($645,000) fine on Thursday, saying that Facebook failed to safeguard user data and was slow to contain the leak.

The White Helmets Ride Again

More interesting perhaps is the tale of the White Helmets, who have just been given the 2019 Elie Wiesel Award by the National Holocaust Museum ... So, the National Holocaust Museum, which is taxpayer funded, has given an apparently prestigious award to a terrorist group, something which could have been discerned with even a little fact checking. And the museum also might have been sensitive to how the White Helmets have been used in support of Israeli propaganda vis-à-vis Syria. Perhaps, while they are at it, the museum's board just might also want to check out Elie Wiesel, for whom the award is named. Wiesel, who was a chronicler of Jewish victimhood while persistently refusing to acknowledge what Israel was doing to the Palestinians, notoriously mixed fact and fiction in his best-selling holocaust memoir Night.

Syria's national museum reopens doors in war-scarred Damascus

DAMASCUS (Reuters) - Syria’s National Museum of Damascus opened its rich trove of antiquities to visitors again on Sunday, seven years after war forced them to close and months after the government recaptured all rebel areas near the capital.

FBI Director Christopher Wray is LYING to America about the fake pipe bombs: Yes, they were HOAX devices

In truth, real mail bombs don’t contain timers for the simple reason that such devices are intended to be detonated by the physical act of the recipient opening the package, not based on a specific time (since nobody knows exactly when someone will receive a package sent through the U.S. Postal Service).

Not only did these hoax pipe bombs contain mock timers crudely taped to PVC pipe; the timers had no alarm function, meaning they couldn’t even “theoretically” be used to detonate anything.

They were hoax props, in other words, not functioning explosive devices.

But the FBI is claiming no, they are (somehow) real “IEDs.”

Actually, her ratings were terrible. The "Blackface" comments were just an excuse to let her go.

Israeli taxpayers helped bankroll illegal West Bank outposts for decades

The World Zionist Organization's Settlement Division has provided dozens of loans over the past two decades to fund the establishment of unauthorized Jewish outposts and farms across the West Bank, an investigation by Haaretz has revealed. Documents obtained by Haaretz show a pattern in which settlers have established farms and unauthorized outposts over the past 20 years with loans from the Settlement Division - financed entirely through taxpayers' money and frequently secured by liens on agricultural equipment or livestock. The World Zionist Organization refused to respond for this article.

Israel fines New Zealand women $18,000 for urging Lorde concert boycott

An Israel court has ordered two New Zealand women to pay damages for harming the "artistic welfare" of three Israeli teenagers after the pop star Lorde cancelled a planned performance in Tel Aviv. Judge Mirit Fohrer ruled that Justine Sachs and Nadia Abu-Shanab of New Zealand must pay damages to Israeli teenagers Shoshana Steinbach, Ayelet Wertzel and Ahuva Frogel totalling more than NZ$18,000 for writing a letter urging the singer to cancel her concert in Tel Aviv, the Jerusalem Post reports. It is believed to be the first effective use of a 2011 Israeli law allowing civil lawsuits of anyone who encourages a boycott of Israel. The Israeli teenagers claimed their "artistic welfare" was damaged because of the cancellation and that they suffered "damage to their good name as Israelis and Jews".
Note: Ordered by the court!! Unimaginable for a normal human being!

Ambassador to France criticized over censorship attempt

Israeli Ambassador to Paris Aliza Bin-Noun, demanded that French television channel France 2 reconsider airing a news report about Palestinians who were wounded by the IDF, calling it "unbalanced" and asserting that it will cause incitement against Jews in the country. The French media was outraged at Bin-Noun's request and protested it via various media channels. It was seen as an Israeli attempt to censor and undermine freedom of speech. The report titled: "Gaza's disabled teens," was aired on an investigating television show on the prestigious France 2 channel. It discussed the stories of several young Palestinians who had lost their legs after being shot by IDF snipers and who spoke of their broken dreams ... Directly after the article promo was aired, protest stirred among French Jewry.
Note: The awesome evil power of the Jewish nation of Israel and it's evil supporters.

HAS AMERICA BECOME A DICTATORSHIP DISGUISED AS A DEMOCRACY?

We’re living in two worlds, you and I.

There’s the world we see (or are made to see) and then there’s the one we sense (and occasionally catch a glimpse of), the latter of which is a far cry from the propaganda-driven reality manufactured by the government and its corporate sponsors, including the media.

Indeed, what most Americans perceive as life in America - privileged, progressive and free - is a far cry from reality, where economic inequality is growing, real agendas and real power are buried beneath layers of Orwellian doublespeak and corporate obfuscation, and “freedom,” such that it is, is meted out in small, legalistic doses by militarized police armed to the teeth.

All is not as it seems.

“You see them on the street. You watch them on TV. You might even vote for one this fall. You think they’re people just like you. You’re wrong. Dead wrong.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yes, I absolutely see the disconnect, being pushed at us; but I, like a number of my brother and sister Americans, have awoken, and are not buying it.

DHS WANTS TO LET POLICE AND EMERGENCY VEHICLES TALK TO YOUR CAR

It seems like not a week goes by that I am not warning everyone about another government surveillance program.

Sadly, this story is no different and this one might send shivers down your spine. (Happy Halloween.)

Government spying on the public is out of control, and perhaps nothing says that more than the latest revelation about DHS's plan to allow first responders to send digital alerts to every vehicle. All in the name of public safety of course.

Two days ago, an article in NexGov, revealed that DHS is giving the Heedful Audio Alert System $1.1 million to let police, firefighters, and paramedics talk to your car via the Waze app.

The HAAS Alert system will allow first responders to send notifications to everyone's vehicle and phone.

Why would first responders need to talk to our cars?

For their safety of course. DHS and first responders are trying to convince the public that the "Move Over" law is ineffective and does not protect them.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is nothing short of insanity, and could wind up creating crashed due to distracted driving, when someone is receiving a text or call from the DHS.

GOOGLE WANTS TO BE YOUR MEDIA MOMMY

Google might soon add its terms of service to the First Amendment. A leaked document from the tech giant argues that because of a variety of factors, including the election of Donald Trump, what we call the “American tradition” of free speech may no longer be viable. The report lays out how Google can serve as the world’s “Good Censor,” a stern mommy figure protecting us from harmful content and, by extension, dangerous behavior, like electing the wrong president again.

The document, which Google has officially characterized as research, is infuriatingly vague about whether any decisions have been made or action has been taken. So think of all this as a guidepost, like the Ghost of Christmas Future showing us potential doom ahead.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This, folks, is the red warning flag that this country has turned/is turning into a high-tech dictatorship, and I am sincerely encouraging those who can, to get the hell out of this country right now!!

DIGITAL BOOK BURNERS

Jamie Fly, a former high-ranking Bush era neocon, believes you shouldn’t have the right to post on social media.

“Fly went on to complain that ‘all you need is an email’ to set up a Facebook or Twitter account, lamenting the sites’ accessibility to members of the general public. He predicted a long struggle on a global scale to fix the situation, and pointed out that to do so would require constant vigilance,” write Jeb Sprague and Max Blumenthal.

This attitude shouldn’t come as a surprise. Neocons believe they are a special breed, the chosen few of an intellectual crème de la crème, and the rest of us are merely bread and circus spectators on the sidelines as they forge our collective history (and increasingly possible ruin).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to tell you, folks, as a Christian Pacifist Activist, when I read codswallop like this, from a gentleman who probably never encountered a US-sponsored war which he absolutely hated, I find his "ubermench" mentality just too hard to swallow. (and please remember; this was a core concept for Germany under Hitler, a German concept for "Beyond-Man", "Superman", "Overman", "Superhuman", "Hyperman", "Hyperhuman"; taken from the writings of Friedrich Nietzsche.)

I completely, and rationally, reject his concept that there should not be a lot of honest, individual voices out there in Netland; and attempting to shut down these honest voices (of which, I am convinced, WRH is one) means shutting down any and all peaceful, logical resistance to the agenda of the Federal Government, when it is absolutely ham-fistedly, pig-headedly morally wrong.

And there is another disturbing parallel in Fry's thinking which very much reminds me of the ascent of Hitler in Germany, and that is the following:
How did Hitler control the Media: Hitler imposed censorship of the media and drastic penalties for criticizing the Nazi regime.

It appears, from his evangelical fervor, that he is hell-bent on total media control, so that the government propaganda is all that we hear, and that he is looking for a means, motive, and opportunity to completely shut down honest, fact-based discussions of various governmental issues, both foreign and domestic.

I would politely suggest that there are two documents inherent to both the founding, and continued success, of the US, with which Mr. Fry needs to
re-acquaint himself: those are the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights.

Taxpayers Held Liable After Officers Caught on Video Forcing Kids to Fight in a Child Fight Club

Cuyahoga County taxpayers will shell out $180,000 this week to settle a lawsuit brought by former children housed in the juvenile detention center—who were forced to fight each other for the officers’ entertainment in some sort of child fight club.

According to the lawsuit and the video, the officers would pit two children against each other in what they referred to as “Fight Nights.” This was a long standing tradition inside the juvenile detention center, according to the suit.

Luckily, for the victims, at least one of the fights was caught on video and served as evidence showing the officers chuckle and laugh as the kids tore each other apart. In the disturbing video, one child is seen throwing a punch and then body slamming another child before jumping on top of him.

ALLEGED ‘MAGA BOMBER’ CESAR SAYOC ONLY FOLLOWS LEFT-WING PEOPLE ON TWITTER

Despite his vehicle being festooned with pro-Trump stickers and him attending Trump rallies, so-called ‘MAGA bomber’ Cesar Sayoc doesn’t follow any Republicans or conservatives on Twitter, choosing instead to follow left-wing personalities like Lena Dunham, Jimmy Kimmel and Barack Obama.

Following his capture in Plantation, Florida, leftists gushed with excitement at seeing images of Sayoc’s van covered with pro-Trump stickers alongside some of the targets of his dud mail bombs, including HiIlary Clinton, in crosshairs.

HAPPY WATER: IS IT TIME WE STARTED ADDING LITHIUM TO WATER SUPPLY?

Left-wing media outlet Vox is questioning whether the U.S. should start adding lithium to the public’s water supply.

In an article entitled “How our drinking water could help prevent suicide,” Vox highlights psychiatry professor Nassir Ghaemi and his claims that the practice would be beneficial for the American populace.

“High-lithium areas, he says, have suicide rates 50 to 60 percent lower than those of low-lithium areas,” Vox writes, citing a study co-authored by Ghaemi.

“In general, in the United States, lithium levels are much higher in the Northeast and East Coast and very low in the Mountain West,” Ghaemi said. “And suicide rates track that exactly — much lower suicide rates in the Northeast, and the highest rates of suicide are in the Mountain West.”

The article goes on to state that lithium advocates allege “tens of thousands of lives a year” could be saved with “small amounts of lithium, amounts likely too small to have significant side effects.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good heavens, absoflippinglutely not!!

As reported at the following blog, the side effects can be pretty horrific:

Side-effects: lithium

The article goes on to state: Lithium Side Effects, Important Information, How to Take & More
3

Severity: Major. You should check with your doctor immediately if any of these side effects occur when taking lithium:

confusion, poor memory, or lack of awareness
fainting
fast or slow heartbeat
frequent urination
increased thirst
irregular pulse
stiffness of the arms or legs

Thank you, but no thanks here. I would politely suggest, instead, that Dr. Nassir Ghaemi and his cohorts perform the studies on themselves, and see what happens.

TAXPAYERS HELD LIABLE AFTER OFFICERS CAUGHT ON VIDEO FORCING KIDS TO FIGHT IN A CHILD FIGHT CLUB

Cuyahoga County taxpayers will shell out $180,000 this week to settle a lawsuit brought by former children housed in the juvenile detention center—who were forced to fight each other for the officers’ entertainment in some sort of child fight club.

According to the lawsuit and the video, the officers would pit two children against each other in what they referred to as “Fight Nights.” This was a long standing tradition inside the juvenile detention center, according to the suit.

Luckily, for the victims, at least one of the fights was caught on video and served as evidence showing the officers chuckle and laugh as the kids tore each other apart. In the disturbing video, one child is seen throwing a punch and then body slamming another child before jumping on top of him.

Another video showed officers locking the children in a room and forcing them to fight until only one of the kids emerged victoriously.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Dear Lord, what is wrong with these people?!?

Kids who wind up in juvenile detention facilities, are generally bereft of love, structure, consistency, and inspiration to work for, and and to live, their dreams.

In looking at successful families in my own circuit, I can see, practically, that love, structure, inspiration, and extended (functional) families can make all the difference.

These officers need to be sacked, and immediately, and never, ever be allowed to work with kids ever, period, end of discussion.

And BTW, Attorney General Sessions, where the heck were you, when these officers were cheering on physical abuse of these kids?

In your "save zone" of not giving a damn about what was happening to them, I would imagine.

NATION HYPNOTIZED IN HORROR BY TOY BOMBS WHILE KILLING CIVILIANS WITH REAL ONES

And of course it is a good thing that nobody has been hurt by these devices. Obviously targeting anyone with packages containing explosive materials is terrible, even if those devices were not rigged with the intention of detonating and harming anyone, and it is a good thing that not a single one of them has done so. It is a good thing that none of America’s political elites were targeted by the sort of explosive device that America drops on people in other countries every single day.

You know, the kind that actually explode.

Apparently some Acme comedy bombs mailed to a number of extremely rich people, which thankfully did not hurt anybody at all, are infinitely more newsworthy than the real bombs which maim and destroy children in Yemen on an industrial scale.

— Craig Murray (@CraigMurrayOrg) October 24, 2018

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a Christian Pacifist Activist, the disconnect the writer of this post sees, looking at what is happening around this world, with the US complicit in so many deaths, in Yemen, Afghanistan, Libya, Niger, Somalia, and Iraq, is utterly and painfully true.

Folks, when people in power in this talk about the "honor", "glory" and "defending the American way of life" as valid descriptions of the wars in which the Unhinged, Surveilled State of Amerika is currently, and about to be, enmeshed, they are lying to you.

Simply put (and this guy was hopelessly wrong about a lot of things),when Karl Marx said that wars are economic in their origin, the man was absolutely, dead-on correct.

The war in Iraq?!? This was done to give the US and Western-centric corporations control over its oil.

The "undeclared war" in Yemen, where the US is enabling Saudi war crimes as I type this?!?

There is an issue that the article misses, in that controlling Yemen means controlling the waterways of Bab El Mandab; The Red Sea, and the Gulf of Aden, all points for moving oil in and out of the region.

The war in Libya?!? This was done to prevent Muammar Gaddafi from issuing a gold-backed currency, the gold dinar, which would have shredded the value of the US dollar in a heartbeat. New Hillary Emails reveal the true motive for Libya intervention.

The war in Afghanistan?!? To control the pipeline rights, rare mineral development, and control of the poppy crops, from which a booming market in illicit heroin is derived.

The coming war against Iran?!? First, this will be done to honor Trump's commitment to both Israel's Prime Minister, Bibi Netanyahu, and his biggest American Supporter, Sheldon Adelson, who has supported the Trump Campaign with millions in overt, and covert funding, and secondly, to force this country to always sell its oil only in US dollars, post-regime change.

Of course, both Netanyahu and Adelson fully expect this war to be fully executed.... only at the costs of only US blood, and US money, not Israeli

Let's take a look at this last issue, shall we?!?

In FY 2018 the federal deficit was $779 billion.

With its desire for more and more wars, with which to enrich the US government financially, we are looking a Federal deficit of almost 780 billion dollars in fiscal 2018; that's a huge number to wrap my head around.

Instead of limiting spending in a reasonable and rational way, the US government appears to be miring the US public in an absolutely unpayable debt structure, from which there is no way out. This falls on the backs of hard-working Americans, who are desperately struggling to keep food on the table, and a roof over their heads. The people creating this unpayable debt have armies of lawyers and accountants on speed-dial, to insure that they get the best break possible with taxes.

Russia and China, which may well come to Iran's aid, should it be invaded, have weaponry the US military can only wet-dream about; sorry for being blunt, but because of their close relationship with both the Pentagon and Congress, and contributing lavishly to the campaigns of politicians on both sides of the aisle, our military industrial complex has been consistently behind the 8 ball, in staying at least two steps ahead of where our international competitors are, in terms of developing lower cost weapons that just... do the job brilliantly.

Please understand; as a Christian pacifist activist, I hate war; but if such a war happens, I want to see our brothers and sisters in uniform equipped with the best, most brilliantly crafted weaponry that actually works as advertised, and beyond.

So, we have a the US government hopelessly indebted to its creditors, and a potential coming world war, where our military doesnt' have the money, the manufacturing, the troop strength, or weaponry to insure a positive outcome in a world war, ultimately against Russia, and China.

This is a potential recipe for a complete, unmitigated disaster for this country, the consequences of which may be both horrific... and irreversible.

And we have a companion piece this morning, from blackistednews.com:

Saudi-led airstrikes hit civilians in Yemen
If We, the People, do nothing, in the most peaceful, logical way possible, to get US involvement in these US-enabled Saudi war crimes in Yemen to stop, then We the People are also, absolutely and unequivocally, complicit in these war crimes as well.
