  1. Twitter wants user help in ban on ‘dehumanizing language’

    Twitter is calling on its users to help shape its rules on what it considers “dehumanizing language.”

    The move comes as a part of Twitter’s new push to change its user policy by broadening its restrictions and enforcement against hate speech on its platform.

    “At least 78 migrant workers from Nepal, India and the Philippines have not been paid by their contractor in Qatar since February 2016, a report released by Amnesty International has said.

    According to the London-based rights group, a construction company involved in building a showcase stadium that helped Qatar win its bid to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup has failed to pay migrant employees, leaving them “stranded and penniless”.

  5. 2,000 PEDOPHILES AND SEX OFFENDERS SET TO BE CHEMICALLY CASTRATED (newsweek, Sep 26, 2018)
    https://www.newsweek.com/2000-pedophiles-and-sex-offenders-set-be-chemically-castrated-1138875

    “The Former Soviet Republic of Kazakhstan is set to chemically castrate around 2,000 convicted pedophiles amid a surge in child rapes across the landlocked country.

    A Turkestan sex offender, whose identity is unknown, will be the first to receive the injection under the supervision of Kazakhstan’s health ministry, reported Yahoo News. The man was found guilty of sexually attacking a child in April, 2016.

    The country’s president Nursultan Nazarbayev has allocated $37,000 (RM111,735) to fund around 2,000 castrations. “At the moment there has been one request for chemical castration in accordance with a court ruling,” Lyazat Aktayeva, the Kazakhstan’s deputy health minister, said. “Funds have been allocated for more than 2000 injections.”

    Earlier this year, the country passed a new law allowing for chemical castrations. At the time, Senator Byranym Aitimova revealed that the “temporary” castration will come in the form of a “one-time injection.” The treatment is intended to prevent an offender from committing sexual violence.

    Most chemical castrations do not last a lifetime and are considered to be reversible. The drug, Cyproterone, is an steroidal anti-androgen that was originally created for cancer patients.

    When administered through injection, it will dramatically reduce a person’s sex drive and libido but effects to dull sexual urges could wear off in time, reported News.com.au. Critics have warned that the procedure is not guaranteed to prevent repeated sexual assaults.

    The castrations in Kazakhstan will be executed at regional psychoneurological clinics across the country.

    Kazakhstan has reportedly experienced a dramatic rise in sexual crimes committed against children over the past few years. Between 2010 and 2014, underage rapes doubled to around 1000 per year.

    Chemical castrations have been used in several countries around the world – including Australia, South Korea, Russia and Poland – to curb sexual offenders. Usually they are granted in exchange for lighter prison sentences.

    Indonesian President Joko Widodo passed a controversial law allowing the practice to be performed on convicted pedophiles in 2016, following a high-profiled case where a 14-year-old girl was brutally gang raped and murdered.

    Before the law was passed, two opposition parties objected to the notion during intensive debates in parliament.

    Human rights groups have also denounced the procedure, claiming that it will not result in the intended effect.

    “Other countries that have chemical castration have not seen a reduction in sexual crime against children. Also it’s a very expensive procedure and what we should be spending and investing our money in is services to support and help the victims,” Azriana, the head of the National Commission for Women, said.”

      Kazakhstan Offers Spiritual Revival – Not ‘Multiculturalism’

      [Kazakhstan]’s only 26 years old. Secular, mostly Turkic and Sunni Muslim, it has a large Russian, Ukrainian, Korean, and other minorities living there in peace and increasing prosperity.

      Vast parts of Kazakhstan’s nomadic culture and Turkic identity were destroyed during Soviet times, as even the language was “Russianized” with the Cyrillic alphabet becoming mandatory. One-third of its people was starved to death by communists in forced collectivization.

      Today, President Nursultan Nazarbayev has instituted a cultural, or spiritual, awakening of Kazakhstan, returning the nation to its roots in order to help it succeed in the modern world of the future. It is a unique program that offers an alternative to the Western-style multiculturalism of “anything goes.”

      Rukhani Zhangyru (Spiritual Revival) means to bring the nation back to its soul. In addition to political and economic reform, Kazakhstan recognizes the need for self-nation-building — within its own borders. This is the gist of the Spiritual Renewal program. This goes well with the notion of national “resilience,” which is currently broadly discussed in Europe. A country and a society are not just the military and the economic components, but much more: cohesiveness, culture, customs, education, etc.

      In essence, it is a reaction to the globalism foisted upon the world over the last few decades. Forcing other cultures on a people does not make them stronger. Quite the opposite, it destroys their ability to work as a team, to achieve a common goal, or even to achieve success.…

  6. Iranian-made parts found in explosives that Houthis use to fight the war in Yemen (WT, Sep 26, 2018)
    https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2018/sep/26/iranian-made-parts-found-explosives-houthis-use-fi/

    “To fight Arab Coalition forces, Yemen’s Houthi rebels have standardized and mass-produced landmines and improvised explosive devices with Iranian-made components, according to a new report released Wednesday.

    Evidence collected by experts at the Conflict Armament Research (CAR) organization also shows that improvised mines and explosive devices (IEDs) “are mass-produced by Houthi forces on a scale only previously achieved by Islamic State forces in Iraq and Syria.”

    “The use of landmines and IEDs is a growing threat in Yemen and one that will persist long after the current phase of the conflict concludes,” CAR’s report said.

    Since March 2015, Yemen has been locked in a ruinous war pitting the Saudi Arabian-led Arab Coalition forces, which back the internationally recognized government of Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi — against the Houthi rebels, supported by Iran.

    The war has devastated the already-impoverished Yemen, killing an estimated 10,000 people and turning the nation at the tip of the Arabian Peninsula into war-ravaged nightmare.

    The British-based CAR organization — which documents the supply of weapons, ammunition and military materiel in active armed conflicts — reached its conclusions after conducting multiple missions to Yemen over the past two years.

    While Iranian officials have long rejected accusations from Saudi Arabia that it provides financial and military support to the Houthis, CAR found otherwise.

    Specifically, its experts noted that conventional mines from Belgian, Italian, Chinese and German manufacturers were used in the conflict — but deadly IEDs often replied upon electronic components from Iran, many times in clandestine ways.

    “The most recent seizures of IED electronics reveal attempts to conceal their provenance [from Iran],” the report said.

    In March, CAR found explosives camouflaged to resemble rocks that were similar to devices U.S. and Israeli investigators have recovered from Hezbollah and in Iraq. In both cases, experts suspected the weapons originated in Iran.

    The report also found that Houthis were using weapons that relied upon electronic components connected to an Iranian cargo ship, the Jihan 1, which Yemeni authorities seized in 2013.

    United Nations experts, CAR noted, concluded that Iran was “at the center” of the Jihan 1 operation.”

  7. According to the DOJ’s Office of Public Affairs, 27-year-old Ji Chaoqun is alleged to have operated on U.S. soil as an “illegal agent of the People’s Republic of China.”

    A criminal complaint and affidavit filed in U.S. District Court says Ji was directed by a “high-level intelligence officer” from China and tasked with obtaining information on individuals to help aid “possible recruitment.”

    The eight individuals included “Chinese nationals who were working as engineers and scientists in the United States, some of whom were U.S. defense contractors,” the DOJ says, citing the complaint.

    Ji has been charged with one count of knowingly acting in the United States as an agent of a foreign government without prior notification to the Attorney General and is expected to make his first court appearance today.

  8. ‘I was wrong’, she admits on Monday. Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel had to apologise for mistakes in how she handled the controversy over ex-intelligence chief Hans-Georg Maassen, saying that the coalition will now focus on” solving people’s problems” as “we have been too preoccupied with ourselves in many areas.”

    “That has got to change,” she added, in regards to Brexit, digitalisation, the care sector and diesel regulations as issues needing focus.

    Mrs Merkel’s government was thrust into difficulty over accusations that Hans-Georg Maassen, from Berlin’s spy agency BfV, held ‘far-right sympathies’.

    Hans-George was in the headlines earlier this September for questioning the accuracy of footage showing right-wing sympathisers ‘chasing people’ in the eastern city of Chemnitz.

    Just after that, he was said to have passed restricted information about Islamic extremism to the populist Alternative for Germany (AfD) party.

    However, Interior Minister Horst Seehofer, Maassen’s boss, stood by him causing further conflict between him and Merkel.

    Merkel sacked Mr. Maassen in an attempt to defuse the row, however, she agreed he could be given a higher paid position at Germany’s Interior Ministry. This caused further backlash from the public.

  9. Rogers Delgado-Saez fled 42 years ago to escape from Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet. From Chili he moved to Luxembourg and started work partially in Brussels as a European official.

    Delgado-Saez was heavily beaten and robbed Monday night. Ironically he just celebrated 42 years of living as a free man for 42 years in Europe.

    The European official was on his way to a hotel, that he visits regularly when somebody asked him for a cigarette.

    “I was on the phone with my wife to open the door, when a young man approached me and asked if I had a cigarette for him. When I said I didn’t smoke he took my telephone,” Delgado-Saez says.

    He tried to defend himself but he took several blows. He fell to the ground and “saw two other suspects ”. Fortunately his wife heard the fight outside the hotel and found her husband bleeding on the pavement.

    A French rapper has caused outrage by calling for white babies to be killed in a video showing a white man being tortured, shot and hanged from a tree.

    The video by Nick Conrad – which controversial black comedian Dieudonne M’bala M’bala, a convicted anti-Semite, linked to on his Facebook page on Saturday – was viewed thousands of times on YouTube before being taken down today.

    In one scene from ‘PLB’ – short for ‘Pendez Les Blancs’, or ‘Hang Whites’ – the little-known rapper and an associate drag their white victim along the pavement and kick him in the head.

    The attack appears to be a reference to a famous scene from the film American History X, in which actor Edward Norton plays a neo-Nazis who stamps on the head of a black man as he lies face down on the pavement.

    A gun is also forced down his throat and he is ordered to ‘suck it’.

    The lyrics evoke the killing of adults and children and advocated killing ‘white babies’ and ‘hanging their parents’.

    The rapper sings: ‘I walk into creches, I kill white babies, catch them quick and hang their parents.’

    As the victim is about to be strung up, Conrad asks him, ‘show me that you’re a wizard, that white people have that magical DNA’.

    He faces court action for inciting racial hatred for the incendiary lyrics and the graphic video, which appears to show him torturing a victim, whose teeth are broken before he is then hanged.

    The video was taken off YouTube four days after its official release.

    Government spokesman Benjamin Griveaux condemned the ‘hateful, nauseating lyrics in the strongest possible terms’ as did Interior Minister Gerard Collomb, who slammed the video’s ‘abject remarks and ignominious attacks’.

    The Paris prosecutors office opened an inquiry, with the rapper likely to face charges of incitement to hatred under France’s strict hate speech laws.

    Conrad, who is in his 20s, was born and grew up in suburban Paris, but describes himself as an ‘Afro-French’ citizen.

    He regularly uses his Facebook account to call for ‘a mutiny’ against France, which he accuses of still being a ‘colonising nation’.

    Bruno Retailleau, of the opposition Republicans party, said the song was ‘a call to murder’, adding: ‘It’s intolerable. There are things that should not be allowed because they incite racial hatred. This is a provocation to a crime.’

  11. FBI Arrests Chinese National Charged as Beijing Spy
    Engineer joined Army Reserve, helped MSS obtain background data on spy recruit targets

    The FBI arrested a Chinese national in Chicago on Tuesday who was working as an unregistered agent of China’s civilian intelligence service in secretly targeting American technology from defense contractors.

    Ji Chaoqun, 27, was arrested in Chicago by FBI agents and charged with acting as an illegal agent of the People’s Republic of China.

    According to a criminal complaint filed in federal court, Ji came to the United States in 2013 on an F1 visa as an engineering student and was working with a high-level officer of the Ministry of State Security, the civilian spy agency.

    After he had been recruited by Chinese intelligence, Ji enlisted in the U.S. Army Reserve program called Military Accession Vital to the National Interest program, known as MAVNI. The program allows the Army to hire certain legal aliens with special skills.

  13. Prosecutor cancels grand jury in New Mexico compound case
    By The Associated Press
    September 26, 2018 4:34 pm
    SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — A district attorney on Wednesday canceled plans to convene a grand jury to hear testimony against five adults who were initially detained on suspicion of child neglect at a ramshackle compound in New Mexico where a boy was found dead.

    Taos-area District Attorney Donald Gallegos took the action as federal prosecutors prepare a firearms and conspiracy case against the extended family.

    Gallegos said the federal case should go forward before the state convenes a grand jury.

    In early August, authorities found 11 children living in filth at the compound and later recovered the body of a severely disabled 3-year-old boy. Police in Georgia say the child was kidnapped by his father, Siraj Ibn Wahhaj.

    State charges of child abuse resulting in death were previously dropped against Wahhaj and wife Jany Leveille.

    The couple remains jailed along with Wahhaj’s sisters Hujrah Wahhaj and Subhanah Wahhaj, and his brother-in-law Lucas Morton.

    A federal grand jury indictment alleges the defendants transported firearms and ammunition from Georgia to New Mexico in late 2017. They deny the allegations.

  14. Study: Majority Of Americans Now Say It Is OK To Punch A Grammar Nazi

    U.S.—Is it O.K. to punch a grammar Nazi? This question has been floating around the internet after footage of an attack on a well-known, self-professed “grammatical purist,” Shawnton P. Middesmith, went viral on Friday.

    According to a new study, the answer among Americans is an overwhelming “Absolutely.”

    Middlesmith, who identifies as an “alt-writer” and describes himself as a “grammartarian,” was punched in the head by a person clad in black as he was being interviewed by a journalist from ProofReader Monthly. At the time of the attack, Middlesmith was explaining some of his controversial beliefs, such as far-right justified indentations, a distaste for Times New Roman Black, Nominitive Case-baiting, the annihilation of 99% of all ellipsis use, intransitive verbaphobia, anti-semicolon, and dedicated to the spreading of the Oxford comma. Video of the attack shows Mr. Middlesmith’s glasses reeling to one side under the force of the blow and his attacker darting through a crowd after landing the punch.

    Mr. Middlesmith later reported he was spat on, kicked in the pants, and epithets were hurled at him such as, “commanist,” “Neo-sentence capitalist,” “semi-colonialist,” “apostrophobic,” and “Question marxist.”

    Video of the attack quickly inspired a flood of jokes and memes online, some of which set the punch to songs like “Word Crimes,” by Weird Al.

    There was little substantive debate online about the ethics of punching the grammar Nazi. Opponents of the punch were hard to find. Supporters tended to say the punch was funny, and more than a few compared Middlesmith’s attacker to famous Nazi punchers from pop culture, like Indiana Jones and Captain America. All in all, one study found that 97% of the country supported punching annoying grammar Nazis.

    “All nazis should be punched in the face, and that includes grammar nazis, even soup nazis,” said one person on Twitter. The tweet had over four million likes and retweets.

    For the record, Shawnton Middlesmith says he is not a Grammar Nazi. In an interview on Saturday, he said he was a member of the alt-write, which he calls “a movement toward grammatical purity, favoring the upper case, with a goal toward write supremacy.” Middlesmith said he chooses not to use the term “grammar nazi “because “it doesn’t resonate” and because he says “my views are more complex. The tax I am most concerned with is syntax. The authoritarian regime I support is Funk & Wagnall’s. German National Socialism is a historic movement of the past. It arose at a very particular time and had particular motives and ideas and policies and styles that had little to do with grammar. Besides, Mein Kampf is full of grammatical errors.”

    Middlesmith says he is worried about being punched again. He says he doesn’t feel safe leaving his seedy duplex anymore. People on the internet say he should be scared. “I don’t think any kind of nazi should feel safe walking the streets of America,” said one tweet. “I’m all for the proper use of punch-you-ation.”

  16. “No Place To Hide – The Strategy & Tactics of Terrorism”
    Reality Zone – Published on June 4, 2018

    This documentary removes the mystery from international terrorism.

    On the surface, terrorism appears to be irrational and counter-productive. But when the long-range strategy and tactics are understood, it becomes recognizable as part of a larger plan to weaken and destroy target governments. It is but one phase of the Marxist-Leninist dogma of so-called Wars of National Liberation.

    The terrorists themselves are dispensable players in this deadly game because, when the target governments are finally toppled, it will not be the terrorists who come to power, but the international Marxist apparatus that trained and supplied them.

    Here are the documented facts that show the detailed operation of this network. The program is built upon sound research and offers powerful visual images and amazing historical footage.

    Written, produced, and hosted by G. Edward Griffin in 1982, this film is every bit as relevant today as it was then.

    “Head of anti-Terrorism Centre in the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) General Andrei Novikov yesterday warned that Daesh was planning to establish a “caliphate” in Central Asian countries, RT reported.

    In a meeting of counter-terrorism chiefs of the security and intelligence services of the CIS, Novikov said that Daesh militants “are also trying to activate sleeper cells” in that area, according to RT.

    Kyrgyz Deputy Prime Minister Zinisz Razakov warned that terrorist threats in Central Asia and the CIS “will generate long-term conflicts”.

    In June, Igor Serotkin, deputy director of the Russian Federal Security Service, the head of National Counterterrorism Committee Body, said: “Despite the losses Daesh had sustained, it continued to spread throughout the world and remained a serious threat.”

  22. Number of Immigrants Referred To German Security Services Rose Fourfold in 2017 (breitbart, Sep 26, 2018)

    “The German government ministry responsible for processing refugees and asylum seekers referred over ten thousand cases of suspicious migrants to the security services in 2017, a significant rise on the previous year.

    The latest whole-year figures for the number of reports of migrants suspected of being an endangerment to the national security situation or preparing to use force was 10,597 in 2017, a fourfold rise compared to the 2,418 in 2016. This itself was already a significant rise from 2015, when there were 571.

    In the 2018 year to August, there were 4,979 reports made to the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution (Bundesamt für Verfassungsschutz, BfV) by the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (Bundesamt für Migration und Flüchtlinge, BAMF).

    The figures, reported by Germany’s Welt newspaper came to light after a request for information was made to the Federal Government by the centrist Free Democratic Party (FDP).

    Responding to the figures, a government spokesman told the paper: “since October 2016 a large number of reports have been received… the majority of which are still under investigation.”

    Despite the definite 2017 figure of 10,597, it is not clear how many migrants this relates to, as each individual may have theoretically been reported to the security services more than once. There are also no statistics accompanying these which tell how many of the reports were found to have merit, and how many were unfounded.

    This lack of supplementary information is a problem, said senior FDP MP Stephan Thomae, who told the paper: “The Federal Government has to investigate the question of whether there is something behind the increased figures… If the BfV does not even have a statistic about which tip-offs prove to be justified or baseless, the question arises whether the incoming clues are even processed or just [floating around].”

    The data comes after the revelation in August that 54 per cent of terror plots in Germany since 2014 have involved asylum seekers. In 2016 alone, 60 per cent of plots in Germany either planned or realised were conducted or planned by Syrian trained militias.”

  23. PHONE AUDIO: CNN Producer Cold-Calling Brett Kavanaugh’s Yale Classmates

    CNN producer Scott Bronstein is caught on tape calling around to Brett Kavanaugh’s Yale classmates from the class of ’87.

    “Sender’s husband is a Yale grad and CNN is proactively contacting ‘87 Yale graduates who were in Pierson Residential College to try to dig up dirt on Kavanaugh,” Amy Dryden wrote on Facebook.

    The media has now put forward two sexual impropriety accusers: Palo Alto-based left-wing activist professor Christine Blasey Ford, and former George Soros Open Society Foundations senior fellow Deborah Ramirez, also a professor. But so far no concrete evidence has implicated Kavanaugh in any wrongdoing.
