Leaflets threatening violence against Jews found on vehicles in Chicago

Anti-Jewish leaflets were found on several vehicles on Chicago's Northwest Side, police said.

Six vehicles were discovered with leaflets containing anti-Semitic threats in their windshields Saturday morning in the 6300 block of North Monticello Avenue, according to Chicago Police News Affairs Officer Janel Sedevic.

According to the Chicago Tribune, residents reported the material contained threats to Jewish people in connection to the rising conflict in Gaza.

The leaflets reportedly threaten violence if Israel does not pull out of Gaza.

Police officers' ties to Ku Klux Klan shocks small Florida town

Ann Hunnewell and her central Florida police officer husband knelt in the living room of a fellow officer's home, with pillow cases as makeshift hoods over their heads. A few words were spoken and they, along with a half-dozen others, were initiated into the local chapter of the Ku Klux Klan, she says.

Last week, that five-year-old initiation ceremony stunned residents of the small town of Fruitland Park, who found out an investigative report linked two city officers with the secret hate society that once was violently active in the area. Ann Hunnewell's ex-husband, George Hunnewell, was fired, and deputy chief David Borst resigned from the 13-member Fruitland Park Police Department. Borst has denied being a member.

James Elkins, a third officer who Ann Hunnewell says recruited her and her husband, resigned in 2010 after his Klan ties became public.

The violence against blacks that permeated the area was more than 60 years ago, when the place was more rural and the main industry was citrus. These days, the community of less than 5,000 residents about 50 miles northwest of Orlando has been infused by the thousands of wealthier, more cosmopolitan retirees in the area. Those who live in the bedroom community, which is less than 10 percent black, have reacted not only with shock, but disgust that officers could be involved with the Klan, the mayor said.

Hundreds show for pro-Palestinian protest in Nicosia, Cyprus

Protesters gather during a pro-Palestinian demonstration against the Israeli army's attacks on the Gaza Strip outside the Israeli embassy in Nicosia, Cyprus, 21 July 2014.
Several hundred pro-Palestinian protesters have demanded a halt to military action in Gaza during a peaceful protest near the Israeli embassy in the Cypriot capital.

Monday's protest was organized by left-wing trade unions and peace groups and included Turkish Cypriot activists from the ethnically divided island's breakaway north.

Riot police standing behind a cordon of barbed wire-topped fences prevented marching protesters from approaching the embassy's entrance.

Some protesters burned a hand-painted Israeli flag.

Organizers condemned the bloodshed in Gaza and urged the international community to put pressure on Israel to stop the fighting.

Texas to deploy 1,000 National Guard troops to 'greet' the children who cross the U.S. - Mexico border

Texas Governor Rick Perry is afraid of Mexican children immigrants, he needs the National Guard to protect him from them
Texas Gov. Rick Perry activated 1,000 National Guard troops and will deploy them to the Rio Grande Valley. There they will join the state's Department of Public Safety in an effort to combat human smuggling across the country's southern border.

"I will not stand idly by while our citizens are under assault, and little children from Central America are detained in squalor. We are too good a country for that to occur," Perry said during his announcement of Operation Strong Safety.

"The National Guard troops that I am deploying will support the state-led border surge by acting as a force multiplier on the ground and providing additional air assets beyond their current efforts," the Texas governor said. "These additional resources will help combat the brutal Mexican drug cartels that are preying upon our communities, and also will help deter others before they have a chance to harm our citizens and become criminal aliens within our borders."

Comment: That's Texan hospitality for you: deploy militia to greet the children who cross the border hoping for better life conditions on the U.S. side. Mayor Perry referring to these children states he needs to deter them "before they have a chance to harm our citizens and become criminal aliens within our borders." What a load of racist paramoralisms!


The ambitious plan to break California into small city-states - Is it a model for the future?

California 6 states
The more I've thought about potential solutions to the gigantic mess we have found ourselves in as a species, the more I have come to believe we need to break apart into a vast multitude of city-states. The revolutionary concept of America in the first place was this idea of "self-governance," something we do not posses an iota of in this day and age. As was noted recently in an academic paper published by Princeton and Northwestern, these United States have mutated into nothing short of an oligarchy. In fact, the study demonstrated that the will of the people has essentially zero impact on legislation whatsoever.

Luhansk after shelling
Dozens of civilians were killed and more than a hundred others injured last week in a massive shelling of Luhansk, a city in eastern Ukraine, the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) said Monday.

The OSCE said citing the local emergency services that the shelling occurred on July 18-19.

Members of the Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) in Ukraine went to downtown Luhansk, where they observed a large crater beside a bus stop.

"Shattered windows and shrapnel fragments in the walls of two nearby six-storey buildings were seen, and blood and body parts along the pavement and road," the OSCE said.

The monitors also saw "five houses reduced to rubble on the outskirts of the city" and "the remains of a rocket of an indeterminable type at the scene."

Comment: The similarity with Israel is astounding: the declaration of all inhabitants of an area to be terrorists, to the brutal bombing of civilians with mass casualties followed by a denial of any wrongdoing. See the similarity?

This pattern reveals the hand of who has been aiding the fascists all along.

Is the decline in 'neighborliness' the cause of so many parents being arrested?

It used to take a village. Now it takes the cops and social services.
This summer has seen a rash of stories of parents being hauled away in cuffs for such sins as letting their kids roam unaccompanied in a park, or keeping them in the car while performing a short errand, or even leaving them alone in their own home for a few hours.

My own childhood seems to have become illegal. I was the son of a single mother. During summers I would explore my neighborhood, visit friends' houses, walk to a pond to fish, ride my bike from our home in Bloomfield, N.J., to the abandoned lots of Newark, and jump it over curbs. I could be unsupervised from 10 in the morning until 8:30 at night, when the streetlights started coming on. If I was home with my grandmother, sometimes she would leave me alone to do grocery shopping.

As early as 7 years old, I was allowed to walk more than a mile to school. I traveled long commercial streets like Bloomfield Avenue, and went under the overpass of the Garden State Parkway, all during a time when violent crime rates were much much higher than they are today. The worst that ever happened to me was that I got punched in the head by a junkie. But I told my D.A.R.E. officer, spent an afternoon looking at photos of local junkies and ne'er-do-wells, and got over it, having learned the valuable lesson that I could take a punch in the head.

Comment: The decline in neighborliness may be one aspect. A bigger aspect is the emergence of the police state in the US.


Police state Baltimore: New curfew to go into effect

In just a few weeks, Baltimore City will have the toughest curfew laws in the country and Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake is hoping to set the records straight on all that the law entails. Rochelle Ritchie has more on the new law and whether residents think it will work. The mayor is hoping this new law will not only keep kids safe but also expose those families who are in need of critical parental guidance.

Mob scenes like one in Fells Point may be avoided as Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake pushes for more control of the city's youth, with stricter curfews set to take effect next month.

Comment: More conditioning of the populace, decades ago a curfew would have been unthinkable. Now?


Virginia father leaves twin baby girls in hot car, police find him having sex 30 feet away

A Virginia man was charged with felony child endangerment and indecent exposure on Friday after police found his 1-year-old twin daughters inside his hot vehicle while he was having sex behind a friend's duplex.

Prince George police told WTVR that neighbors called on Friday to report hearing the sounds of children crying. Officers responding to the scene found the two 1-year-old babies inside 47-year-old Juan Munford's hot car, while he was having sex with a woman about 30 feet away.

"We went around to the back of the duplex and discovered a male and a female engaging in sexual intercourse," Prince George Police spokesperson Capt. Brian Kei explained. "At that point [officers] made contact with the individual who identified himself as the father of the two twins."

The neighbor who called police insisted to WTVR that he made the right decision because so many children had recently died from being left in hot cars. But the neighbor said that he did not feel safe interrupting the father's tryst.
