__***Jewnited Airlines treating their customers like animals***__
*http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/video-shows-guards-dragging-passenger-off-united-flight-46702283* (ABC News)
Video of police officers dragging a passenger from an overbooked United Airlines flight sparked an uproar Monday on social media, but United's CEO defended his employees, saying they followed proper procedures and had no choice but to call authorities and remove the man.
As the flight waited to depart from Chicago's O'Hare Airport, officers could be seen grabbing the screaming man from a window seat, pulling him across the armrest and dragging him down the aisle by his arms. United was trying to make room for four employees of a partner airline on the Sunday evening flight to Louisville, Kentucky.
Other passengers on Sunday night's United Express Flight 3411 are heard saying, "Please, my God," ''What are you doing?" ''This is wrong," ''Look at what you did to him" and "Busted his lip."
Passenger Audra D. Bridges posted the video on Facebook. Her husband, Tyler Bridges, said United offered $400 and then $800 vouchers and a hotel stay for volunteers to give up their seats. When no one volunteered, a United manager came on the plane and announced that passengers would be chosen at random.
"We almost felt like we were being taken hostage," Tyler Bridges said. "We were stuck there. You can't do anything as a traveler. You're relying on the airline."
__***Furry Faggot Meet-Up cancelled amid tax-evasion scandal***__
*http://www.thedenverchannel.com/news/local-news/amid-allegations-of-unpaid-taxes-neo-nazism-and-sex-offender-denver-furry-convention-canceled* (The Denver Channel)
DENVER – Fur is flying between different sects of a niche community of Coloradans over allegations of neo-Nazism, unpaid taxes and fake legal threats that has led to the cancellation of the popular annual “furry” convention in Denver.
The journey down the furry wormhole started with a tweet Monday night from JJ MacNab, a Forbes writer who covers anti-government extremism.
But before getting into the rest of the story, let’s try and clear up exactly what a furry is – though even that is open to interpretation.
The Furry Writers’ Guild website, which says it is “supporting, informing, elevating, and promoting quality anthropomorphic fiction and its creators,” says furries, furs and furry fandom are “a fan community focused on appreciation of anthropomorphic animal characters (animals given human traits/characteristics.)”
But in the next paragraph on the site, it says, “If you ask ten people in the fandom for a definition of furry, you’re likely to wind up with eleven different answers.”
A Google search brings up the definition of: “An enthusiast for animal characters with human characteristics, in particular a person who dresses up in costume as such a character or uses one as an avatar online.”
Group angers other furries over hotel block, online posts
As it turns out, Colorado has a relatively-large furry population. They have gathered recently at a Fort Collins St. Patrick’s Day celebration and on an Arvada trail run. A meetup involving furries, called a “furmeet” within the community, took place in Boulder on April 1.

In an exclusive video interview with AFP news agency, he said "there was no order to make any attack".
More than 80 people were killed in the rebel-held town of Khan Sheikhoun on 4 April, and hundreds suffered symptoms consistent with a nerve agent.
Witnesses said they saw warplanes attack the town but Russia says a rebel depot of chemical munitions was hit.
Shocking footage showed victims - many of them children - convulsing and foaming at the mouth. Sufferers were taken to hospitals across the border in Turkey.
__***Emperor Trump drops the Mother of All Bombs on ISIS Mudslimes in Afghanistan***__
*https://www.rt.com/news/384714-moab-kills-militants-afghanistan/* (Russia Today)
In President Trump’s latest military move since striking Syria, the US’ most powerful conventional bomb was dropped on a suspected Islamic State hideout in Afghanistan. The GBU-43/B killed up to 36 presumed terrorists, the Afghan Defense Ministry said.
The 10-ton bomb, dubbed ‘mother of all bombs’, was dropped from a MC-130 aircraft in the Achin district of Afghanistan’s eastern Nangarhar province, which borders Pakistan. According to the Pentagon, it targeted a network of caves and tunnels where Islamic State (IS, Daesh, formerly ISIS/ISIL) fighters were hiding.
“No civilian has been hurt and only the base, which Daesh used to launch attacks in other parts of the province, was destroyed,” Dawlat Waziri, a spokesman for the Afghan ministry, said.

In a widening diplomatic rift between Turkey and the EU, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has made a new provocative statement saying that the “collapsing” Europe “will pay” for “humiliating” and “oppressing” Turks living on the continent.
“They said a century ago that we were the 'sick man.' Now they are the 'sick man.' Europe is collapsing,” the Turkish leader said, using an insult popular among European politicians in the 19th century when they talked about the collapsing Ottoman Empire.

*https://goo.gl/hWZ3q7* (Big Black Cocks (BBC) News)
Voting is under way in Turkey in a landmark referendum that will determine whether President Recep Tayyip Erdogan will be granted sweeping new powers.
Mr Erdogan's supporters say replacing the parliamentary system with an executive presidency would modernise the country, but opponents fear it could lead to greater authoritarianism.
A "Yes" vote could also see Mr Erdogan remain in office until 2029.
There have been reports of gunfire at a polling station in Turkey's south-east.
Two people were killed and one wounded in the incident in Diyarbakir province, the Hurriyet daily reports, saying the violence was sparked by "differing political views".
About 55 million people are eligible to vote across 167,000 polling stations, with the results expected to be announced late on Sunday evening.
Opinion polls suggest a narrow lead for "Yes".

Votes have no colour, religion or class, so why so few election posters in multi-ethnic La Busserine?
About 3,000 people (nobody seems to know for sure) are packed into this 1960s housing estate in northern Marseille and they have some serious issues.
Think "ghetto" and you are on the right track.
La Busserine is in the 14th Arrondissement, a district which made national headlines in 2014 when, together with the neighbouring 13th, it elected the city's first (sector-level) mayor from the far right National Front (more on that later).
Yet over two days, the only traces I found of this month's presidential election were a few posters for radical leftist Jean-Luc Mélenchon.

The rights of British citizens living there and elsewhere are still to be decided, but a handful of the 25,000 British people living in Belgium do not want to wait for the outcome and are applying for citizenship in their adopted home.
In her house in a smart Brussels suburb, British-born business consultant Glynis Whiting brandished her stiff, shiny, new Belgian passport.
"I went through customs in Germany with it recently and I thought: 'This is me stating that I am a slightly different person than I was,'" she told me.
A resident of Belgium for two decades, she applied for Belgian citizenship before the UK's referendum on membership of the EU.
She described it as her insurance policy.
"If the UK had voted to leave it would have been essential for me to stay in Europe with no worries," she explained.
"If the UK had voted to stay then it was a vote of confidence in my now home country."

__***ISIS sandfaggot who attacked Paris was an actual Mudslime terrorist that was arrested 15 years ago***___
French security services are today facing troubling questions as to how they failed to prevent an ISIS gunman from slaughtering one policeman and wounding two other officers in Paris when he was already on a terror watch list and was arrested as recently as February.
Karim Cheurfi, a 39-year-old, was known as a threat to the country and described as an 'extremist' by authorities, who had placed him on a watch list. It's believed he was radicalised while serving a 20-year jail sentence for attempting to kill two officers in 2001, before his release last year.
In February, the terrorist tried to obtain weapons and made threats to kill police officers, but was let go in early March due to lack of evidence.
Last night, the fanatic was killed by police after he got out of his Audi and opened fire at police stopped at a red light on Champs Elysees. His car was packed with more weapons, including a pump action shotgun and knives.
An note declaring allegiance to ISIS was discovered on the Champs Elysees and is being investigated by police.
Traffic officer Xavier Jugele, 37, died instantly with a shot to the head, while the other two were hurt before Cheurfi himself was gunned down by nearby armed police. A ricocheting bullet fired by the terrorist also wounded a female foreign tourist passing by.
ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack and named the attacker as 'Abu Yousuf al-Belgiki', which translates to 'the Belgian' in Arabic - a name which was listed in uncovered documents from the terror group last year.
__***Good ol' USA tells Hermit Kingdom to fuck off with the nukes***___
WASHINGTON, United States — The United States pledged Wednesday to step up sanctions to force North Korea to resume dialogue over its nuclear program but said it was not looking to bring Kim Jong-Un’s regime to its knees.
After briefing senators at the White House, top US officials said President Donald Trump wants to use diplomatic measures and new sanctions to pressure Kim.
The president aims to “pressure North Korea into dismantling its nuclear, ballistic missile, and proliferation programs by tightening economic sanctions and pursuing diplomatic measures with our allies and regional partners,” read a statement from Pentagon chief Jim Mattis, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats.
__***Pope Francis is against libertarianism, says (((common good))) is better than individual freedom***___
Pope Francis had harsh words to describe libertarians Friday, saying they deny the value of the common good in favor of radical selfishness where only the individual matters.
“I cannot fail to speak of the grave risks associated with the invasion of the positions of libertarian individualism at high strata of culture and in school and university education,” the Pope said in an message sent to members of the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences meeting in the Vatican and subsequently shared with Breitbart News.
“A common characteristic of this fallacious paradigm is that it minimizes the common good, that is the idea of ‘living well’ or the ‘good life’ in the communitarian framework,” Francis said, while at the same time exalting a “selfish ideal.”
__***Emeperor Trump tries to solve Hermit Kingdom problem diplomatically, Fat Jong-un makes it impossible***___
On Thursday, during an Oval Office interview with Reuters, President Trump said: “There is a chance that we could end up having a major, major conflict with North Korea. Absolutely.”
“We’d love to solve things diplomatically but it’s very difficult,” the president added.
China will clearly play a major role in that hoped-for diplomatic resolution, as Trump suggested he would not anger Beijing with another phone call to Taiwan’s president. He explicitly stated he wanted to avoid “causing difficulty” for Chinese President Xi Jinping while he is “doing everything in his power to help us with a big situation.”
He praised Xi as a “good man” who is “trying very hard” to avoid “turmoil and death” on the Korean peninsula.
__***ASEAN tells Hermit Kingdom to stop fucking around with nukes, says it's not a toy***___
Foreign ministers of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) urged North Korea on Friday to put a stop to its nuclear testing and ballistic missile launches that have rattled the region and its other neighbors since last year.
The ministers issued a statement on the Korean Peninsula tension, the first statement they made after they met to finalize the regional grouping’s positions on certain issues ahead of the leaders’ summit on Saturday.
The stance taken by the Asean foreign ministers came at a time when North Korea reportedly sought the support of the regional grouping in its row with the United States and called for it to make an issue of the US-South Korea military exercises in the Korean Peninsula.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation is helping American Universityinvestigate who hung bananas from nooses on the Washington campus after the school's first black female student government president took office, the agency said on Wednesday.
The bananas were strung up at three sites on the campus early on Monday. University President Neil Kerwin has characterised the incident as a hate crime targeting black women, especially Alpha Kappa Alpha, a black sorority.
University police asked the FBI to join the probe, said Lindsay Godwin, a spokeswoman for the agency's Washington office.
The bananas were hung by black string formed into the shape of nooses, according to photos posted on social media.
__***Robert Mugabe: Zimbabwe second-most developed country in Africa (lmao)***___
*http://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-39803593* (Big Black Cocks News)
Zimbabwe is the most highly developed country in Africa after South Africa, President Robert Mugabe has said.
He denied that the country was a fragile state.
"We have over 14 universities and our literacy rate is over 90 [%] - the highest in Africa," he said, adding that the economy was improving.
Zimbabwe has been struggling to pay its civil servants recently and is ranked 24th on the UNDP's Human Development Index for Africa.
"We have more resources, perhaps more than the average country in the world." Mr Mugabe said, during a panel discussion on fragile states at the World Economic Forum on Africa in South Africa's costal city of Durban.
"We have a bumper harvest, maize, tobacco, and other crops. We are not a poor country," Mr Mugabe added, while acknowledging that Zimbabwe had problems.
Last year, more than four million people were in need of food aid in Zimbabwe after rains failed. The country was once known as the breadbasket of southern Africa.
The opposition accuses Mr Mugabe, who has ruled since independence in 1980, of ruining the economy.
Zimbabwe has faced a severe cash shortage since last year and has introduced so-called bond notes as a substitute for the US dollar, the main currency people use.
Hyperinflation forced the government to abandon the Zimbabwean dollar in 2009.
After Mr Mugabe came to power in 1980, he was widely praised for improving access to education in the country and in the 1990s, it did have among the highest literacy rates in Africa.
However, schools have also been affected by the country's economic problems and rates have now dropped back.

__***US Secretary of State meets SE Asia leaders to stop Hermit Kingdom from fucking with nukes***___
U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is ramping up pressure on North Korea by meeting with Asian foreign ministers on Thursday in Washington, D.C.
It was Tillerson’s first meeting with the 10-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), and he is expected to seek their support for taking the necessary steps to end North Korea’s nuclear weapons program.
Since President Donald Trump took office, North Korean President Kim Jong-un has fired seven missiles but his provocative actions date back to his installation as leader of that communist country.
“Saturday’s launch marked the 75th missile test since Kim Jong Un became leader of North Korea at the end of 2011, according to a Nuclear Threat Initiative database,” the Washington Post reported after the latest launch late last month.

__***82nd Airbone coming to Afghanistan to kick ISIS sandfaggot ass***___
*https://archive.is/Ht3mo* (Fox News)
If the Trump administration sends thousands more American troops to Afghanistan to counter the growing insurgency, the soldiers will find the “devils in baggy pants” waiting for them.
The Army has already announced that 1,500 men and women from a key brigade in the vaunted 82nd Airborne Division, whose Luciferian moniker owes to their battle dress and demeanor, will be sent to the war torn nation this summer. It’s an “advise and assist” mission, but if things go south, the 82nd is rough and ready.
“The 'Devils in Baggy Pants' are well-trained, well-equipped, and ready to assist our Afghan partners as part of the Resolute Support mission," said Col. Toby Magsig, commander of the division’s 1st Brigade Combat Team. “Since spearheading allied assaults in Sicily and Anzio in 1943 the Devil Brigade has accomplished its missions through disciplined initiative."
The Trump Administration is currently reviewing a proposal which calls for thousands more U.S. troops to counter a gathering Taliban threat. U.S. troop levels in Afghanistan peaked in 2011 at 100,000 and decreased each year since, down to 8,400 American men and women in 2017. Trump has not yet signed off on a new strategy, but if more aggressive measures are taken in Afghanistan, the 82nd Airborne Division could play a key part in achieving success.
Lt. Col. Joe Buccino, a spokesman for the 82nd Airborne told Fox News the Combat Brigade’s deployment was not a ramping up of U.S. military in Afghanistan.
The mission of the 82nd Airborne Division is to, “within 18 hours of notification, strategically deploy, conduct forcible entry parachute assault and secure key objectives for follow-on military operations in support of U.S. national interests.”
__***Turkroach thinks that US arming Kurds is bad idea***___
*https://archive.is/kPSDD* (Fox News)
Turkish media are quoting Deputy Prime Minister Nurettin Canikli as saying the U.S. decision to arm Syrian Kurdish fighters viewed as terrorists by Turkey is "unacceptable."
The U.S. said it would provide arms to the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces to help them drive Islamic State militants from the extremists' de facto capital, Raqqa. Turkey says the Syrian Kurdish group known as the YPG, which forms the backbone of the force, is the Syrian branch of the Kurdistan Worker's Party, or PKK, which is waging an insurgency in Turkey.
Turkey, the U.S. and other Western allies view the PKK as a terrorist group.
Hurriyet newspaper quoted Canikli as saying Wednesday: "The United States is providing every kind of aid to the PKK through (Syrian Kurdish forces)."
Canikli expressed hope that Washington would reverse its decision, saying "there is no truth to the claim that the fight against Daesh can only succeed with the (Syrian Kurdish forces)." Daesh is the Arabic acronym for IS.

__***Biden finally admits that Shillary is utter trash***__
*https://archive.is/Dd5ge* (Fox News)
Former Vice President Joe Biden took a swipe at Hillary Clinton on Thursday, saying upon further reflection she wasn’t a “great candidate” for president.
The former VP, who continued to leave the door open just a crack to a possible 2020 run, spoke at a hedge-fund manager conference in Las Vegas.
According to Fox Business Network, Biden addressed the Democratic presidential nominee’s surprise November defeat to President Trump in blunt terms.
"I never thought she was a great candidate. I thought I was a great candidate," he said, adding:
"No man or woman should announce for the presidency unless they genuinely believe that for that moment in the nation’s history they are the most qualified person to deal with the issues facing the country."
Biden also may have been publicly musing about his own plans. He reportedly said he’s focusing on his family right now, but if it looks like he’s the best person to run, “I may very well do it.”
“Could I? Yes. Would I? Probably no,” Biden said.
__***Pedophile (Little) Weiner finally admits into being a degenerate pedophile fucktard***__

Disgraced former Rep. Anthony Weiner plans to plead guilty Friday in federal court to a charge of transferring obscene material to a minor.
A public relations firm for Weiner's lawyer confirmed to Fox News that he will plead guilty, and the FBI told Fox News that Weiner surrendered on Friday morning.
The FBI began investigating Weiner in September after a 15-year-old North Carolina girl told a tabloid news site that she and the former politician had exchanged lewd messages for several months.
She also accused him of asking her to undress on camera.
The New York Times first reported that the former New York Democratic congressman will enter the plea Friday in Manhattan.
According to the Times, the expected plea covers conduct from January to March of 2016. The charge reportedly carries a potential sentence ranging up to 10 years in prison – though the former congressman also could avoid prison entirely.

The 26-year-old Navy veteran who went on a drug-fueled car rampage in New York’s Times Square, killing one woman and injuring 22 other people, now says in a jail interview that he attempted to “fix his life” and sought help but failed to receive it on time.
In an interview with the New York Post, the suspect Richard Rojas made emotional pleas for forgiveness, while at the same time remaining seemingly dumbfounded about Thursday’s events, which he now claims he cannot recall.
Rojas says he attempted to consult a mental health counselor at a local veterans’ center, but the specialist was not available until Monday, May 22.
“I was trying to get help. I wanted to fix my life. I wanted to get a job. Get a girlfriend,” Rojas told the Post, speaking from Rikers Island. “He [the counselor] said he’d call me on Monday…Monday hasn’t come yet.”
Rojas claims that the last thing he remembers doing Thursday was driving his vehicle in an attempt to unwind.
“It was just a normal morning. I had a sandwich … I wanted to clear my head. I told my mom, I said I was just going around,” he says, adding that later he “woke up in the precinct” and was “terrified.”

President Rodrigo Duterte said the martial law declared in Mindanao Tuesday night, May 23, 2017, would be as harsh as the one declared by President Ferdinand Marcos.
Martial law in Mindanao would not be different from martial law during the time of the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos, President Duterte said before leaving Moscow for Manila.
Mr. Duterte had put the entire island of Mindanao under martial law following the recent terror attacks in Marawi.
“Martial law is martial law. So kayong mga kababayan ko, you’ve experienced martial law, it would not be any different from what the President Marcos did. I’d be harsh,” Mr. Duterte said in a Facebook live interview with Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson of the Presidential Communications Operations Office.
__***Obongo visits New Arabia (Germany), praises Merkel for destroying the German economy, culture and people***__
Former US President Barack Obama received a rock-star welcome in Berlin as he appeared at a public debate Thursday with Chancellor Angela Merkel, whom he praised as one of his “favorite partners” during his presidency.
Security was tight in front of the German capital’s iconic Brandenburg Gate, where Obama and Merkel appeared on a podium before thousands of people attending a gathering marking the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. Police helicopters patrolled the skies and snipers with balaclavas watched the scene from nearby rooftops.
After lauding Merkel as someone who had done “outstanding work,” Obama launched a defense of his own presidency and the values of liberal democracy championed by both leaders.
Citing the rise of nationalism and xenophobia in parts of the world, Obama told the crowd: “We have to push back against those trends that would violate human rights or suppress democracy or restrict individual freedoms.”
In a veiled reference to his successor Donald Trump, Obama also spoke of the need to see development aid and diplomacy as essential aspects of national security policy.
“We can’t isolate ourselves. We can’t hide behind a wall,” he said, to cheers from the audience.
Merkel, who hosted Obama at the same spot four years ago, was due to travel to Brussels later Thursday for a meeting with leaders of fellow NATO member states, including President Trump.
Thursday’s appearance with Obama was criticized by some German opposition politicians as a publicity stunt ahead of September’s general election, in which Merkel aims to win a fourth term.
__***US National Security Adviser 'not concerned' with Kushner, Russia back-channel allegations***__
*https://archive.is/VJXDs* (Fox News)
President Trump’s National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster told reporters during a press conference at the G7 Summit in Sicily that he is “not concerned” with reports that Jared Kushner tried to set up diplomatic back-channels with Russia.
McMaster initially declined to speak on the Kushner reports but when asked if he would be concerned if someone in the administration tried to set up a backchannel with the Kremlin, he said “no,” Reuters reported.
"We have back-channel communications with any number of individual (countries). So generally speaking, about back-channel communications, what that allows you to do is communicate in a discreet manner," McMaster said, adding that “we're not concerned about it."
Kushner, Trump's son-in-law and a top White House adviser, allegedly proposed a secret back-channel between the Kremlin and the Trump transition team during a December meeting with the Russian ambassador to the U.S.
Kushner reportedly spoke with Ambassador Sergey Kislyak several times about creating that line of communication to facilitate sensitive discussions aimed at exploring the incoming administration's options with Russia as it was developing its Syria policy.
An attorney for Kushner responded late Friday about the alleged conversations with Kislyak, saying his client participated in myriad calls during that time and doesn’t recall those being alleged.
Kushner’s legal counsel has said that their client will cooperate with federal investigators and Congress.
__***Former Clinton aide reveals truth about the Clintons, says that the Clintons are scandal machines in the White House***__
The aides and advisers who endured the last major independent investigation at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue say President Donald Trump and his team cannot be prepared for how miserable their lives are about to become.
Ken Starr's investigation into Bill Clinton wrought havoc on the personal and professional lives of the White House staff, brought down a sitting governor, and ultimately led to the impeachment of a president for only the second time in American history.
And it did all that despite, after almost 10 years and $70 million, ultimately finding insufficient evidence to bring charges against the Clintons or any White House officials. More indictments and convictions were doled out to Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush aides.
But the Clinton probe was still brutal in the toll that it took.
"There were definitely nights when I put my faith in alcohol," said former White House Staff Secretary Sean Patrick Maloney, who is now a Democratic congressman from New York. "It's not fun."
Maloney said he'll never forget standing in his office in the White House when the Senate Sergeant of Arms delivered the articles of impeachment to Clinton.
Former FBI Director Robert Mueller's probe into Russian meddling in last year's election and possible ties of the Trump campaign to Moscow is starting at the beginning of Trump's presidency when he has few accomplishments or good will to fall back on, and when the White House is already riven with internal divisions and leaks.

North Korean state media claims the country has tested a "a new type of anti-aircraft guided weapon."
State-run media KCNA said on Saturday that Kim Jong Un watched the test and said that defects in the system have been fixed.
The new reported test comes after heightened tensions in the Korean peninsula, and follows international condemnation of several banned ballistic missile tests the isolated nation has carried out so far this year.
Experts said some of the North's claims about its anti-aircraft systems are doubtful.
"North Korea tested the new-type anti-aircraft guided weapons system and suggested that they can even hit the stealth aircraft and ballistic missiles, but I think this is exaggeration given their level of technology at this point," Yang Uk, a North Korean expert at advisory committee for the South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff, told NBC News.
North Korea's most recent ballistic missile test was conducted last week, when North Korea launched a medium-range ballistic missile. Another missile launched in mid-May flew around 430 miles before crashing into the sea, officials have said. Some other tests conducted this year ended in the missiles blowing up shortly after launch.
The U.S. military said it will try to shoot down an intercontinental-range missile in a test next week. The planned missile shoot down is intended to test the Ground-based Midcourse Defense system, the Missile Defense Agency said this week.

A Conservative Party Member of the European Parliament has said Pakistan faces a lack of representation in the Brussels and Strasbourg legislatures following Brexit.
Sajjad Karim, a British-born MEP of Pakistani heritage, made the comments when speaking with the Karachi-based television channel GeoTV on Tuesday.
“Once Brexit has gone through, Pakistan runs the risk of not being represented properly in the European Union. The repercussions of Brexit must be taken seriously by all!” he wrote on Facebook.
__***Retard Pakis at it again: Pakistan village 'court' sentences woman to death for adultery for saying she was raped***__
A teenager has reportedly been sentenced to death by a village council in Pakistan’s Punjab province for having a sexual relationship with her cousin.
The 19-year-old denied having consensual sex with him, saying her relative had raped her at gunpoint.
The woman said in a statement to police she and her family were asleep at their home in Rajanpur, a rural district in southwest Punjab, when her cousin came into the house and sexually assaulted her.
“I could not raise an alarm as [he] was holding a gun,” she told police, Press Trust of India reported. “But the panchayat refused to accept my statement and declared that I willfully slept with him.”
Panchayats – informal village justice systems that operate in remote areas of Pakistan – have been criticised for handing out cruel punishments for adultery. The sentences they give out have no legal standing.
The woman said the court took no action against her alleged rapist.
__***Resorts World gunman burned self to death–PNP***__
(3rd update, 2:39 p.m.) Philippine National Police (PNP) chief General Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa on Friday confirmed that the lone gunman behind the attack on Resorts World Manila is dead.
Dela Rosa, who earlier claimed that the gunman was killed after resisting arrest, said that the suspect set himself on fire in one of the rooms at the hotel.
“Patay na siya. Nagsunog siya sa sarili niya sa loob ng hotel, sa Room 510,” Dela Rosa told reporters. “Sunog talaga.” (He’s dead. He burned himself inside the hotel in Room 510. He was burned beyond recognition.)
“Humiga siya sa bed, kinoveran niya sarili niya ng makapal na kumot, and apparently nagbuhos siya ng gasolina sa kumot at nagsindi sa sarili. Sunog siya (He lay in bed, covered himself in a blanket, poured gas on the blanket and set himself on fire. He’s burned),” Dela Rosa added.
NCPO Police Chief Dir. Oscar Albayalde, in a Palace briefing, said the police found out the gunman had a gunshot wound in his head.
“Wala pa tayong SOCO report ‘no, meron siyang gunshot wound sa (We have no (Scene of the Crime Operatives) report yet, but he had a gunshot wound on his) head. So…And he was really burned,” Albayalde said.
“So nakikita natin dito, binuhusan niya ‘yung sarili niya ng gas (He bathed in gas). He covered himself with a blanket, at saka may mga foams dun, and he ignited himself. And then he shot himself. Binaril niya bago masunog totally ‘yung katawan niya (He shot himself before his body is totally burned),” he added.
He said the gunman was “already dead” when they found him.
Earlier, the police chief said the gunman was a foreigner, a Caucasian who appeared to stand six-foot tall.
He, however, denied reports that the international terror group ISIS was responsible for the attack.
__***Mattis promises based Asians that the US is still with them despite America First foreign policy***__
Defense Secretary James Mattis sought patience from Asian nations reeling from President Donald Trump’s “American First” policy moves, insisting that the U.S. would continue to expand its engagement in the region.
Mattis used his speech at the Shangri-La security forum in Singapore on Saturday to affirm U.S. alliances that he said had helped keep the peace for decades in Asia. To underscore the point, he urged China, the region’s rising power, to help rein in North Korea and warned it against showing “contempt” for other nations by asserting its claims to the South China Sea.
States will continue to adapt and continue to expand its ability to work with others to secure a peaceful, prosperous and free Asia, with respect for all nations upholding international law,” Mattis said. “Because we recognize no nation is an island, isolated from others, we stand with our allies, partners and the international community to address pressing security challenges together.”
The speech came less than 36 hours after Trump announced his withdrawal from the 200-nation Paris climate change accord that he said disadvantaged the U.S. The move -- like an earlier decision to pull out of the 12-nation Trans-Pacific trade pact -- has rattled regional allies and created an opening for China to assert its growing economic and military clout.

Enraged by the heavy death toll and havoc wrought here by the rampage of radical “brethren,” moderate ethnic Muslims have declared jihad (holy war) against what the moderates called the “misguided” forces of the Maute and Abu Sayyaf militant groups.
Marawi Mayor Majul Gandamra fought back tears as he thanked troops, police, and volunteers in the crisis that has turned parts of the previously tranquil lakeside city of more than 200,000 people, most of whom have fled the fighting, into a smoldering battlefield.
__***Minnesota State Fair Apologizes for (((anti semetic))) sandwich***__
Last year, nearly two million people descended upon the fairgrounds in Falcon Heights, Minnesota to get a look at the region's most beautiful cattle and massive butter sculptures, and to gorge on edible Americana like "triple truffle trotters" and cheesy nacho corn on the cob.
This year, things will ostensibly be the same, except that one food stand might be under a little more scrutiny than usual after inventing a sandwich with a name that was deemed "anti-Semitic" by some members of the local Jewish community
