Psychopath Joran van der Sloot reportedly stabbed in Peruvian prison, critically injured

Joran van der Sloot, the 27-year-old Dutchman who is the prime suspect in the 2005 disappearance of U.S. teen Natalee Holloway, has been stabbed and may be in critical condition, according to a Dutch website.

In an interview with a Dutch news outlet, van der Sloot's lawyer, Máximo Altez, said the convicted killer was stabbed in the shoulder and waist by fellow prisoners.

Van der Sloot is currently serving a 28-year sentence for killing a Peruvian business student, Stephany Flores, in 2010.

Van der Sloot was recently transferred to the Challapalca Penitentiary located in the Andean department of Puno, known for its harsh conditions - it sits at more than 12,500 feet, where temperatures range between minus 4 to 48 degrees Fahrenheit.

Van der Sloot, who married his Peruvian girlfriend Leidy Figueroa in a prison ceremony in July, became a father of a baby girl in September.

In the past few weeks, his 24-year-old wife has been repeatedly claiming van der Sloot is being abused in the new prison.

In a report issued Sunday night on the Peruvian TV show Cuarto Poder, Figueroa said he and other inmates are made ​​to perform exercises in the middle of the night and are routinely beaten on the knees and testicles for no reason.

"They make them walk on stools, they have no electricity, they are locked 24 hours. In his ward there are people with tuberculosis, others will suffer from bleeding and infection, and nobody does anything," she said.

However, also on Sunday, the head of the Peruvian system of prisons (INPE), José Luis Pérez Guadalupe, denied any wrongdoing and called the wife a "compulsive liar."

"Absolutely nothing has happened. That lady is lying and it is not the first time she does it. She has been giving false reports to the media for weeks now: that he has been beaten, tortured, that they submerge him in water. We are facing a compulsive liar. Unfortunately she is wasting all of our time," Pérez Guadalupe told Canal N.

Utah police crash Halloween party to ensure no dancing without a permit

Kevin Bacon illegally dances in the 1984 film, Footloose.
St. George - A Halloween-themed private event was targeted by police when there was a suspicion of dancing without a permit.

It happened at the 2014 "Monster Mash" dance party, the third annual event of its kind. It was put on by the event promotion company, Heart of Dixie, and held at the Fiesta Fun Center in St. George, Utah (population 75,000).

Over 400 guests were enjoying the festivities at the October 31st event, participating in all-night enjoyment of bumper boats, go-karts, mini golf, and music.

After 9:30 p.m., St. George police arrived in force to investigate a case of unpermitted dancing. Around 5-6 officers challenged the organizers of the event as not having obtained a proper permit to host the dancing. The venue owner, event promoter, and security coordinator each presented their respective permits, which had been previously approved and issued by the city.

"I told them, 'Well, I actually have a permit that was issued by the city this morning that has 'dance' and 'fun' checked on it, and a big stamp of approval on it,'" Heart of Dixie promoter Jared Keddington said.

Police found the city-issued permits to be insufficient, and forced the organizers to announce over the loudspeaker that absolutely no dancing could be tolerated for the remainder of the night, as per the orders of police.

Be surprised! Syrian rebels armed and trained by US surrender to al-Qaeda

anti tank weapons syrian rebels

Now it is well known to authoritarian followers that the US only arm and train the good rebels. Why? Well because they have said so and contrary to all other empires that happened to turn evil and collapse because the entropic principle characteristic of pathological deviants, aka psychopaths, reached its natural climax, then the United States of America is special and exceptional as its beloved president Obama keeps saying AND inherently a good empire!

So it is time to be surprised and reading The Telegraph today brings the goods:
Two of the main rebel groups receiving weapons from the United States to fight both the regime and jihadist groups in Syria have surrendered to al-Qaeda.

The US and its allies were relying on Harakat Hazm and the Syrian Revolutionary Front to become part of a ground force that would attack the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil).

For the last six months the Hazm movement, and the SRF through them, had been receiving heavy weapons from the US-led coalition, including GRAD rockets and TOW anti-tank missiles.

But on Saturday night Harakat Hazm surrendered military bases and weapons supplies to Jabhat al-Nusra, when the al-Qaeda affiliate in Syria stormed villages they controlled in northern Idlib province.

The development came a day after Jabhat al-Nusra dealt a final blow to the SRF, storming and capturing Deir Sinbal, home town of the group's leader Jamal Marouf.
In case the readership of the Telegraph happens to read Sott or RT regularly and thus feels a little miffed about the lack of surprise, then the article highlights it for all to see:
For the United States, the weapons they supplied falling into the hands of al-Qaeda is a realisation of a nightmare.

It was not immediately clear if American TOW missiles were among the stockpile surrendered to Jabhat al-Nusra on Saturday. However several Jabhat al-Nusra members on Twitter announced triumphantly that they were.

Bodies of three US siblings of Mexican descent were found near Matamoros, a town on the US border
The bodies of three people, tied-up and with gunshot wounds to the head, have been identified as siblings from Texas reported missing earlier this month, a northeastern Mexico state prosecutor said on Friday.

The siblings' suspected abduction might have been orchestrated by local security officials, said the office of Ismael Quintanilla, attorney general of the border state of Tamaulipas.

In North Carolina, voter fraud is THIS Easy

Of all of the undercover investigations I've conducted, this was by far the easiest.

They were willing to pass out fraudulently obtained ballots like it was Halloween candy.

With almost three-quarters-of-a-million inactive voters and no voter ID law in place, we could have turned the election results for most major candidates in the state.

- James O'Keefe, quoted in the Daily Mail
Voter Fraud

North Carolina is one of 33 states – plus the District of Columbia – where voters can cast ballots long before election day, and one of 19 states where people can vote without showing any documents whatsoever. In 2016, however, an aggressive voter ID law will take effect in the Tarheel State.
James O'Keefe is no stranger to this site. In August, I posted another one of his video stunts in the piece: Video of the Day - Man Easily Crosses U.S.-Mexico Border Dressed as Osama bin Laden, which you should check out if you missed it the first time around.

The Western supported and funded dumpster-democracy in Ukraine

Dumpster incident Ukraine

Dumpster democracy!
The dumpster-democracy in Ukraine aka Banderastan continues. Despite the fascists and their radical cohorts being "elected" and with only a shadow of an opposition left as they were heavily intimidated beforehand, some of those fascists who in some districts lost to the opposition took to the usual tactics:
Local mob affiliated with oligarch Igor Kolomoisky publicly harass and humiliate member from the team of Alexander Vilkul, MP of the Ukrainian Rada. She is from the "Opposition block", coalition of parties that oppose Euromaidan ideology.

And why you may ask. Well the answer seems to be straight forward as the article explains:
Alexander Vilkul won against Kolomoisky's candidate, so probably that was the reason why Kolomoisky unleashed his "local crew" to take care of the members of "Opposition bloc".
Those pesky opposition people, who dare to raise their voice and Kolomoisky is not happy about losing, just like psychopaths don't like losing. Coincidence?

Anyway Kolomoisky is rather involved in politics in Ukraine and has been in the news lately. Not just because he was the sponsor of the Odessa massacre, but his private army commanders, those of the Dnipro-1 goon battalion (amongst other Kolomoisky funded death squads) have been rather vocal.

Three bodies have been found in a Swiss car park after a reported shooting

The bodies of three people were discovered in a car park near a train station in the Swiss Alps town of Wilderswill on Monday, police said, with reports saying they had been shot dead.

Police said they had been alerted to the presence of the bodies in the town near the popular tourist destination of Interlaken at 7:00 am (0600 GMT), but gave no further details.

Media reports said they were killed in a shooting incident and that police were carrying out a forensic search of a hotel balcony that overlooks the car park.

US approved Ferguson no-fly area to keep press out

In this Monday, Aug. 18, 2014 file photo, people stand near a cloud of tear gas in Ferguson, Mo. during protests for the Aug. 9 shooting of unarmed black 18-year-old Michael Brown by a white police officer.
The U.S. government allowed police in Ferguson, Missouri, to restrict more than 37 square miles of airspace for nearly two weeks in August for safety reasons, but audio recordings show that local authorities instead wanted to keep news helicopters away during violent street protests.

On Aug. 12, amid demonstrations following the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown, Federal Aviation Administration managers struggled to redefine an earlier flight ban so police helicopters and commercial flights at nearby Lambert-St. Louis International Airport could fly through the area - but not others.

"They finally admitted it really was to keep the media out," said one FAA manager about the St. Louis County Police Department in a series of recorded telephone conversations obtained by The Associated Press. "But they were a little concerned of, obviously, anything else that could be going on."

At another point, a manager at the FAA's Kansas City center said police "did not care if you ran commercial traffic through this TFR (temporary flight restriction) all day long. They didn't want media in there."

Majority of Scots would now vote 'yes' to independence - poll

Scotland _ yes
© Reuters / Russell Cheyne
Just six weeks after the referendum in which Scots rejected independence by 55 to 45 percent, a new YouGov poll for the Times has found that 52 percent now back a split from the union, as Labour sees its support in Scotland gradually diminish.

The YouGov poll put support for the union at 48 percent. The figures will give more momentum to the pro-independence Scottish Nationalist Party (SNP), which wants to see another referendum as soon as possible.

Another vote on whether Scotland should remain in the 300-year-old union with England may be triggered in 2017 if the UK votes to leave the EU. The Scottish are much more pro-European than the English, and want to stay in the European Union.

While Scots believe the results of the last referendum have left the country divided, a separate poll for STV found that two-thirds of Scots want another referendum within a decade.

The results of the YouGov poll came out after the Scottish Labour Party suffered a bad week. Johann Lamont, the leader of Scottish Labour, resigned amidst a barrage of criticism of the party's central London HQ and that the Scottish division of the party was merely a "branch office" of London.

The poll showed that just 22 percent of Scots believe the Labour Party represents their interests and a further 65 percent do not believe it does a good job of representing them.

Hacking democracy: North Carolina voters report voting machines switching their votes to GOP candidate

Voter in front of voting machine at polling station
A voter in Guilfrord County, attempting to take advantage of early voting in North Carolina, told the News-Record that the voting machine he used repeatedly switched his vote for a Democrat to a vote for her Republican opponent.

Percy Bostick, 69, of Greensboro said he tried casting a vote for Democrat Kay Hagan - who is locked in a tight battle with her GOP opponent - however the machine, located in the Old Guilford County Courthouse - assigned his vote to Republican Thom Tillis.

"I called one of the poll workers over," Bostick explained. "She said do it again. And again, I touched the screen at the proper place for Kay Hagan, and it again reported it for Thom Tillis."

Comment: For many decades, American democracy has been funded by corporations. It became easy to hack the democratic process with the introduction of electronic voting machines. Voting machine manufacturers have close links with American political parties.
