The two largest parties in the former coalition government both lost seats on municipal councils. The Labour Party (PvdA), led by Wouter Bos, and the Christian Democrats (CDA), led by now caretaker prime minister Jan Peter Balkenende, paid the price for three years of difficult government

Mr Wilders was visibly buoyed by the results and was characteristically combative saying this was the first step in the upcoming campaign for parliamentary elections.

His [the police] answer was, ‘You have to learn how to obey your father’. They stripped his shirt off, threw him on the ground and beat him, and kept him in jail for two days. And then he was sent home where his father beat him again and threatened to kill him.”

4. IRS Currently Employing Convicted Terrorist Associate

While IRS officials were targeting Tea Party groups for special scrutiny of their 501(c)3 tax exempt applications, the IRS also hired a policeman who had been prosecuted by the Justice Department — and convicted in federal court — of using his access to the FBI’s NCIC system to tip off a terror suspect about the bureau’s surveillance. The leak wrecked a major terror investigation.

He is still at the IRS.

Weiss Russell (he has changed his name from “Weiss Rasool,” the name under which he was convicted), is currently employed as a financial management analyst in the IRS Deputy Chief Financial Officer’s Office.

  1. NIGERIA – 17 killed as Boko Haram bombs market in Borno

    KANO – At least 17 people have been killed by an explosion in a village market in Borno State in an attack blamed on Boko Haram Islamists, a local police chief said on Sunday.

    The deadly blast struck a busy marketplace late on Thursday in the remote village of Nguro-Soye, injuring many more, said police chief Lawan Tanko.

    News on the attack was slow to emerge after insurgents destroyed nearby telecom towers, shutting down communications in the area.

    “An explosion in the market in Nguro-Soye killed 17 people,” Tanko told AFP, adding that police were investigating the source of the explosion.

    “The attack on Nguro-Soye, as in previous attacks, is the handiwork of Boko Haram insurgents.”

    Residents who fled the village to the state capital Maiduguri put the death toll at nearly 30, and said more people were hurt.

    “They (attackers) fired RPG (rocket-propelled grenade) on the market and opened fire, killing 29 people,” said local trader Hamisu Ibrahim.

    “Many people were injured in the attack and the stampede that followed,” said Ibrahim.

    Nguro-Soye lies close to the town of Bama where 60 people were killed last month in coordinated bomb and gun attacks by Boko Haram that burnt half the town.
