Sweden: Muslim screams, “We Arabs are here to take over your country,” Swede who insults him gets fined
DEC 7, 2019 3:00 PM BY ROBERT SPENCER69 COMMENTS
Some of the Muslim migrants in Sweden are there to take over the country, and make no secret of that fact, but if you murmur a word of protest, you are “Islamophobic,” and must be punished. Submit quietly: it’s the Swedish way.



“Swedish Man Who Insulted Muslim For Threat to ‘Take Over Your Fucking Country’ Charged With Hate Crime,” by Paul Joseph Watson, Summit News, December 5, 2019:

A 53-year-old Swede who insulted a Muslim man for posting a video threat to “take over your fucking country” was hit with hate crime charges.

This is Sweden. Of course he was.

“We Arabs are here to take over your fucking country so go down on your fucking knees and suck my cock your Swedish little whore,” said the Arab man in an angry rant posted to Facebook.

The 53-year-old Swedish man responded on a Facebook group called ‘Political Facts’ with some strong words of his own.

“Disgusting arab crabs disappear from here,” he wrote.

The man was reported to police and called in for an interrogation at Kristianstad where he was asked about his views on immigration.

He was subsequently sentenced by Kristianstad’s district court for hate speech against a protected group and forced to pay SEK 22,200 (roughly $2,300 US dollars).

The court argued that the man’s comments were aimed at Arabs and not just at the individual.

The man appealed the decision to the High Court, but it was upheld, although his fine was reduced to SEK 16,200 in addition to another SEK 800 he was asked to pay to the Crime Victims Fund….

Hong Kong elections: Carrie Lam promises 'open mind' after election rout

Pro-democracy voters celebrating in Hong Kong
Hong Kong's leader Carrie Lam has said the government will "seriously reflect" after local elections saw massive gains by pro-democracy candidates.

Seventeen of the 18 district councils are now controlled by pro-democracy councillors, according to local media.

The election, the first since the wave of anti-Beijing protests began, saw an unprecedented turnout of more than 71%.

It is being seen as a stinging rebuke of Ms Lam's leadership and a show of support for the protest movement.

Hong Kong's young winners and the veterans they toppled
Hong Kong has seen months of increasingly violent protests since Ms Lam tried to introduce a controversial bill enabling extradition to China.

Carrie Lam has become increasingly unpopular in Hong Kong
In a statement released online on Monday, Ms Lam said the government respected the results.

She said many felt the results reflected "people's dissatisfaction with the current situation and the deep-seated problems in society".

The government would "listen to the opinions of members of the public humbly and seriously reflect", she said.

How did people vote?
Some 2.94 million people voted in the election, compared with 1.4 million in 2015.

Pro-democracy candidates won close to 60% of the total vote on Sunday, but achieved a landslide in terms of seats because of the first-past-the-post system, local media report.

Pro-democracy contenders were victorious in 347 of the 452 district council seats up for grabs; pro-Beijing candidates won 60 seats; while independents - many of them pro-democracy - got 45, according to the South China Morning Post.

In the last election four years ago, pro-Beijing councillors won 298 seats, but the distribution of these seats meant they took control of all 18 district councils.

They retained control of only the Islands District Council after Sunday's vote.

Storms in France, Greece and Italy leave 'biblical destruction'
Seven people die as weekend of heavy rain brings landslides, floods and collapsed overpass

Seven people have died as violent storms swept through parts of France, Greece and Italy over the weekend, causing flash floods, landslides and the collapse of an overpass.

Greek media described the storms as leaving a trail of “biblical destruction” in some areas of the country while the overpass collapse in northern Italy brought back a chilling reminder of Genoa’s Morandi bridge giving way during a thunderstorm in August 2018, killing 43 people.

Flash floods in France’s Côte d’Azur claimed the lives of four people, while two others are believed to still be missing. Three of the victims were found in cars that were swept away in floods in the Var region, and the fourth was among a group being rescued by the fire brigade when the dinghy carrying them to safety capsized.

One of the worst affected towns was Roquebrune-sur-Argens in the Var, where the Argens River rose seven metres. The French meteorological office said three months’ worth of rain had fallen in less than 48 hours.

Members of the French civil defence took part in rescue operations in a number of flooded areas around Cannes and other coastal towns.

The orange alert was lifted in the Var and Alpes-Maritimes regions on Monday as the water receded, leaving an estimated 4,500 homes without electricity. Two other French departments, the Puy-de-Dôme and the Gironde, were placed on high flooding alert.

Jean-Luc Videlaine, the prefect for the Var region, said the rain had been of “historic” intensity and there was considerable damage.

Jean-Pierre Hameau of Météo France said the storms and flooding should not be blamed on climate change. Hameau said the phenomena, known in France as cévenols, or Mediterraneans, were relatively frequent in the region.

“They occur three or six times a year. It often begins in September when the Mediterranean is warm and there is rising hot air in the south,” Hameau said.

“This usually happens in September and October, but sometimes we find these conditions in November. It’s not linked to global warming. We had these cévenols before and there hasn’t been an increase since temperatures rose. However, we have noted an increase in the intensity of the rains.”

(Worthy News) - Iran's Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Sunday backed the gasoline price rises that have caused nationwide protests, which he blamed on the Islamic Republic's opponents and foreign foes.

"Some people are no doubt worried by this decision ... but sabotage and arson is done by hooligans not our people," the Iranian Supreme Leader said in a live speech on state TV.Riot police and security forces clashed with demonstrators in Tehran and dozens of other cities on Saturday, Iranian news agencies and social media said, a day after the government increased the price of gasoline.

"The counter-revolution and Iran's enemies have always supported sabotage and breaches of security and continue to do so," Khamenei said. "Unfortunately some problems were caused, a number of people lost their lives and some centers were destroyed." [ Source: Jerusalem Post (Read More...) ]

The Battle You Never Hear About: How Intense Persecution is Driving Endangered Christians Out of Gaza

breaking israel news gaza
(Worthy News) - Terrorists in Gaza rained down hundreds of rockets on Israeli civilians over the last week, sending entire cities to their bomb shelters. In response, Israel pounded terror targets in the Gaza Strip with deadly airstrikes.

Bouts of violence like this one are all too familiar realities in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Caught in the middle is a little known, underreported group that is quickly disappearing from Gaza - Christians.

Christians have been living in the Holy Land since the time of Jesus, but Gazan Christians are a tiny minority in a big conflict. With less than 1,000 Christians left in Gaza, a merciless humanitarian disaster and intense persecution from the Hamas regime makes them one of the most vulnerable groups of Christians in the Middle East.

Iran begins to clear path to nuclear weapon

breaking world news iran israel
by Jordan Hilger, Worthy News Correspondent

(Worthy News) - Iran has taken unprecedented steps toward acquiring a nuclear weapon in the last few weeks.

Last week the Islamic Republic announced that it would begin operating 60 of the advanced centrifuges necessary to separating out uranium isotopes for a nuclear weapon, while a few days before it denied entry to UN inspectors who have been allowed to investigate Iranian facilities since 2015.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called the strides toward nuclear capabilities a "breakout" effort by Iran to obtain a weapon as soon as possible, a claim that seems to have been independently confirmed by the International Atomic Energy Association's discovery of uranium particles at an undeclared site Iran once claimed was a carpet factory.

US special envoy for Iran Brian Hook took the same tack with the Islamic Republic that the Trump administration has chosen since abandoning the JCPOA in May 2018, sanctioning 700 more entities and individuals associated with Iran after the announcement.

White House eyes middle-class tax cut proposal ahead of 2020 elections
 Tuesday, November 12, 2019 | Tag Cloud Tags: Congress, deficit, Economy, News, tax, Trump, Washington, White House, Worthy News
(Worthy News) - As the economy cools less than a year ahead of President Donald Trump's re-election bid, White House advisers are narrowing in on a tax cut proposal that could shore up support from the middle class.

The Washington Post reported Tuesday that a 15% tax rate for middle earners could be included in such a proposal, according to unnamed sources involved in the deliberations. Asked to confirm that report, a White House spokesperson told Business Insider the administration is "studying numerous proposals that will benefit the middle class."

Another round of tax cuts would face an uncertain path in Congress but could serve as a key campaign message for the president. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act passed in 2017 was met with sharp backlash because it heavily benefited corporations and was expected to add trillions to the federal deficit.

Federal Court Rules Suspicionless Searches of Travelers’ Phones and Laptops Unconstitutional
Government Must Have Reasonable Suspicion of Digital Contraband Before Searching People’s Electronic Devices at the U.S. Border
PRESS RELEASENOVEMBER 12, 2019
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
BOSTON—In a major victory for privacy rights at the border, a federal court in Boston ruled today that suspicionless searches of travelers’ electronic devices by federal agents at airports and other U.S. ports of entry are unconstitutional.

The ruling came in a lawsuit, Alasaad v. McAleenan, filed by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), and ACLU of Massachusetts, on behalf of 11 travelers whose smartphones and laptops were searched without individualized suspicion at U.S. ports of entry.

“This ruling significantly advances Fourth Amendment protections for millions of international travelers who enter the United States every year,” said Esha Bhandari, staff attorney with the ACLU’s Speech, Privacy, and Technology Project. “By putting an end to the government’s ability to conduct suspicionless fishing expeditions, the court reaffirms that the border is not a lawless place and that we don’t lose our privacy rights when we travel.”

“This is a great day for travelers who now can cross the international border without fear that the government will, in the absence of any suspicion, ransack the extraordinarily sensitive information we all carry in our electronic devices," said Sophia Cope, EFF Senior Staff Attorney.

The district court order puts an end to Customs and Border Control (CBP) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) asserted authority to search and seize travelers’ devices for purposes far afield from the enforcement of immigration and customs laws. Border officers must now demonstrate individualized suspicion of illegal contraband before they can search a traveler’s device.

The number of electronic device searches at U.S. ports of entry has increased significantly. Last year, CBP conducted more than 33,000 searches, almost four times the number from just three years prior.

International travelers returning to the United States have reported numerous cases of abusive searches in recent months. While searching through the phone of Zainab Merchant, a plaintiff in the Alasaad case, a border agent knowingly rifled through privileged attorney-client communications. An immigration officer at Boston Logan Airport reportedly searched an incoming Harvard freshman’s cell phone and laptop, reprimanded the student for friends’ social media postings expressing views critical of the U.S. government, and denied the student entry into the country following the search.

UN: Al-Shabab Remains 'Potent Threat' in Somalia and Region
 Wednesday, November 13, 2019 | Tag Cloud Tags: Kenya, News, PLO, Security, Worthy News

breaking christian news al shabaab
(Worthy News) - Al-Shabab extremists in Somalia remain "a potent threat" to regional peace and are now manufacturing home-made explosives, expanding their revenue sources and infiltrating government institutions, U.N. experts say.

The panel of experts' report to the Security Council, circulated Tuesday, said a significant escalation of U.S. airstrikes targeting al-Shabab militants and leaders has kept the al-Qaida-linked group "off-balance" but has had "little effect on its ability to launch regular asymmetric attacks throughout Somalia."

The report said al-Shabab's assault on Jan. 15 on a commercial business complex in Nairobi, Kenya, containing the DusitD2 Hotel "illustrates the danger the group continues to pose to regional peace and security." That attack killed 21 people as well as four gunmen. [ Source: VOA News (Read More...) ]

Chilling childhood of incest parents is revealed: Brother and sister jailed for murdering two of their own children started having sex at 16, binged on horror films and killed mice for fun, their sibling reveals
Sarah Barrass and Brandon Machin had 6 children during 20 year relationship

Couple claimed Machin was an attentive uncle helping her as a single mother
Their mother, who cannot be named, has been targeted by trolls during the trial 
Their younger brother Martyn says they were 'evil from birth' and killed pet mice  
Traumatised surviving child fears they would become a killer too, court was told
By MARTIN ROBINSON, CHIEF REPORTER FOR MAILONLINE
 
PUBLISHED: 10:33, 13 November 2019 | UPDATED: 12:40, 13 November 2019
The wretched and incestuous half-siblings who murdered two of their own children and tried to kill four more enjoyed stamping pets to death and began having sex as teenagers after he was taken from their mother into care, it was revealed today. 
Sarah Barrass, 35, and Brandon Machin, 39, were jailed for 35 years yesterday for strangling their son Tristan, 13, in front of 14-year-old Blake before killing him as social services edged toward rescuing them from their chaotic and troubled home life in Sheffield.
After the 12-minute murder spree they attempted to drown a third child in the bath and planned to kill the other three using drugs overdoses, two of whom were under three years of age, but Barrass then called the police. 
The horrific case raises major questions about who knew the truth about their relationship and how they kept an illegal sexual relationship secret despite being on the radar of social services since the 1990s. 
Today the couple's younger brother Martyn - who shares the same mother - said they were 'evil from birth' and would love stamping on pet mice together as children and bingeing on gory horror films such as Nightmare on Elm Street.
 
Martyn, who spoke to social services 10 years before the boys' murder, said: 'Those two have been evil since birth. They are both as bad as each other, they are both murdering, evil psychopaths'.
 
He added: 'They loved killing things and inflicting pain. We had mice. I walked in and Brandon and Sarah were laughing, chasing the mice – stamping on them, killing them. I tried to push them away but they were too strong'.

Chile Enters 26th Day of Protest with Strike, Huge Marches

SANTIAGO, CHILE - Protests against social inequality continued for a 26th day with huge demonstrations across Chile and a national strike that brought much of the country to a standstill Tuesday, while the value of the national currency fell to a record low.

Thousands of people marched peacefully in Santiago, congregating in the central meeting place of Plaza Italia waving the flags of Chile and the Mapuche indigenous group, with whistles and music rising in the air. After nightfall, the demonstrators lighted up the gathering with cellphone screens and green laser light.

But groups of hooded protesters in the capital also fought with police, who responded with water cannons and tear gas. A church in the Lastarria tourist district was ransacked and set on fire Tuesday night, and there were reports of looting at restaurants and shops.

The strike drew widespread participation across the country, generating a holiday atmosphere in many cities. Classes were canceled and some government offices scaled back their services. Some shop and restaurants also were looted.

The coastal city of Valparaiso ground to a halt, with government offices and public and private transport shut down. Protesters threw rocks at some shops in the morning, prompting many to remain closed, while hooded agitators erected barricades and looted. People hurled rocks at the Hotel O'Higgins, an iconic building in Vina del Mar, and ransacked one of the main grocery stores.

Large demonstrations also occurred to the south, in Concepcion, where a government building was evacuated after a fire broke out. In Antofagasta, in the north, barricades impeded traffic, while in Punta Arenas, in the Patagonia region, hundreds of people took to the streets to express their anger.

Silvia Silva, a demonstrator in Santiago, called the strike "historic" and one that "will mark a before and after in our country" as Chileans continue to push for a new constitution drawn up with the direct input of citizens.

"No more abuse. Today we are saying enough, in the most peaceful way possible, to politicians and to those who are in charge of drafting laws in our country," said Luis Casas, who was at her side.

Karla Rubilar, the government spokeswoman, said, "A strike is not the road forward."

Chile is one of the wealthiest countries in Latin America, but it is also one of the most unequal, with a swath of basic services privatized.

A student protest over rising subway fares Oct. 18 has grown into a broad movement demanding reforms to education, health care and pensions. It has been a mostly peaceful movement, though there have been violent clashes between demonstrators and police. Twenty people have been killed and the National Institute of Human Rights in Chile has documented more than 2,000 injuries.

The government of President Sebastian Pinera has responded with a package of social improvements, and on Sunday announced a plan to overhaul the constitution that was enacted during the dictatorship of Gen. Augusto Pinochet. But Pinera's proposals have not appeased protesters, who demand a bigger role in reformulating the country's legal principles.  

The demonstrations have had an economic cost, too. The National Chamber of Commerce Services and Tourism of Chile estimates up to 100,000 jobs could be lost.

On Tuesday, the Chilean currency continued its downward slide, hitting a record 800 pesos per U.S. dollar. Prior to the demonstrations, it had hovered around 700 to 720 pesos. It closed Tuesday at 781 pesos.

Treasury Minister Ignacio Briones said  the depreciation "is a sign of the instability that we are experiencing."
