UK councillor who advocated for gender neutral toilets charged with nine counts of child sex abuse

An English town councillor who hopes to make government-owned facilities gender-neutral has been charged with nine counts of sexually touching a child.

David Smith, 30, represents Coulby Newham, a suburb of Middlesbrough, in the Yorkshire town's local government, or council. Since his arrest, he has resigned from membership in the Conservative Party, but not from his position.

According to the BBC, Smith is due in court on August 7. He denies the charges.

"I completely reject these spurious allegations and removing myself from the party will ensure I can focus all my efforts on fighting to clear my name," he said.

Smith also called the accusations "damaging lies."

According to the local news website Teesside Live, last month Smith asked the mayor of Middlesbrough to introduce gender-neutral washrooms in the Middlesbrough Council buildings. Last month he produced a statement announcing his meeting with the mayor and reminding readers that the issue of "gender neutral toilets" was part of his campaign.

Comment: Where there's smoke, there's fire. Anyone who advocates for issues such as gender neutral toilets, drag queen storytime, sex reassignment for kids or Planned Parenthood style sex education for children should be under suspicion for perversion.

A married couple and two others were viciously beaten and murdered in a small village in India after allegedly practicing witchcraft.

The brutal murder happened on Sunday morning in the Siskari area of India's northeastern Jharkhand state.

Witnesses told local media that about a dozen assailants broke into the victims' homes. Two men and two women were dragged outside, where they were beaten with sticks and stabbed. Some reports say the victims' throats were slit. The attackers had their faces covered, and fled the village after the crime.

All the victims were in their early 60s, and a married couple was among those killed.

Woman wins award for making manhood-crushing 'manspreading' chair

Laila Laurel designed his and hers chairs to show the way men and women "command space."
Take a pew, sitting down just got woke! A British student has snagged a nifty design award for creating an anti-manspreading chair.

Fed up with men who luxuriate in their seating, University of Brighton student Laila Laurel, 23, fashioned a pair of his and hers chairs that challenge the way men and women "command space."

"I was also hugely inspired by Laura Bates' Everyday Sexism Project, where I read about the struggles and frustrations of women around the world pertaining to men infringing on their space," Laurel tells Metro.

Reminiscent of medieval torture devices translated through mid-century style, the sycamore and cherry wood chairs encourage women to spread eagle, while forcing men to knock their knees together.

'Mini-Guantanamo': Secret prison operating in Ukraine torturing Donbass citizens

New evidence has emerged of a secret prison located in the town of Mariupol in the part of the Kiev-controlled Donetsk region.

In addition to the photographs and statements made by a former agent of the Ukrainian Security Service (SBU), there is other evidence of this structure, reinforced with evidence of attempts to conceal it, in an SBU document accidentally obtained by the Republic of Donetsk. According to this information, the arrest still existed in November-October 2018.

All this is due to the fact that an official of the Ukrainian military recruiting board, Yuri Aushev, had earlier this year went to the side of the Republic of Donetsk. He resigned from the service when he became disillusioned with the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

At the military recruiting board, Aushev was also responsible for internal security, so he had installed a specific program on the computers of the military junta that recorded all the operations that were carried out on them.

Comment: Considering the violence and lawlessness that pervades the Ukrainian military, the idea that they would have secret prisons and be involved in torture wouldn't be surprising:

Canadian authorities are trying to solve what has turned into an international murder mystery — the brutal killing of an American woman and an Australian man.

The young couple, who had been touring British Columbia, were found shot dead on the side of a remote highway on Monday.

Grieving family members have said that they are getting little information from Canadian authorities — but that they've been led to believe the deaths were "brutal."

"What worries us is that person is still on the loose and they have a head start," the brother of victim Chynna Noelle Deese told the Charlotte Observer.


Oliver Stone's interviews with Russian and Italian media on new documentary 'Revealing Ukraine' (banned in Ukraine)

oliver stone revealing ukraine
Putting an end to the war in Donbass and telling the truth about the events of 2014 in Ukraine. These were Oliver Stone's goals when he was making his new film. The movie was recently presented at a film festival in Italy, where it won an award. In an interview with Eugeny Popov of Russia 1 earlier this month, Oliver Stone shared the issues he reveals through the prism of the Ukrainian crisis.

Comment: As far as we know, Revealing Ukraine has since been aired on Russian TV channel Russia 1. When it becomes available for general release, we'll publish it on Sott.net.

Here's the official trailer:

And a link to its official website.

Stone is not actually the director of this documentary, though he managed the interviews. The director is a Ukrainian man, but that didn't stop the Ukies from firing a grenade launcher at the Ukrainian TV station that had been scheduled to air the documentary first. The station shelved its plan to air it, and that'll probably be the last it's heard of in Ukraine.

Such is the applicability of Western 'democracy' in that country.

Murderer released after being deemed too old to commit another murder, kills again

albert Flick murder

Albert Flick, 77, was found guilty of murder in the stabbing death of a 48-year-old mother
A 77-year-old murderer — back on the streets because he was deemed too old to kill again — was convicted this week of fatally stabbing a Maine woman while her twin children watched.

It took less than an hour for jurors in Auburn to find Albert Flick guilty of murdering Kimberly Dobbie, 48, outside a Lewiston laundromat on July 15, 2018.

Her twin 11-year-old sons were nearby and security cameras captured the moments they ran to their mother as she was being killed.


'Little miracle': Futuristic Orthodox church to appear in Moscow

The emergence of a temple featuring a very unconventional design is a "little miracle," architects say, given the conservatism of the Church and the faithful.

The church, devoted to the Ignatius of Antioch, will be built in the western part of Moscow, the city's architecture department said on Friday. The project has been already greenlighted by the city's authorities and approved by the Russian Orthodox Church.

"In Russia, people are quite wary of modern architectural methods in church construction, and the emergence of this project is a little miracle. The architects managed to keep all the traditional elements of the temple building, yet added innovative details," Moscow's chief architect, Sergey Kuznetsov, said in a statement.

The architects have been influenced by early Russian Orthodox Christian churches, which were quite reserved in their design and had very few decorative elements, unlike later structures. The project is loosely based on a 14th century church located in the city of Novgorod.


Illegal aliens behind massive child sex crime charges in N. Carolina, a systemic problem nationwide

Mugshots of illegal aliens arrested on allegations of child sex crimes N. Carolina 2018-2019.
In North Carolina, during the past 18 months, more than 331 illegal aliens have been charged with 1,172 child rapes and child sexual assaults, according to data collected by an independent researcher.

James Johnson, who tracks the data on his website NCFIRE.info (North Carolinians For Immigration Reform and Enforcement), says he is only able to gather data from 30 of the state's 100 counties, which means it's likely the statewide count is significantly higher.

Johnson has tracked rapes and sexual assaults on children by illegal aliens since 2013, using original police reports and calling arresting agencies to verify immigration status. His data doesn't cover every month, but for the 54 months he has recorded, an average of 34 illegal aliens per month were charged with 151 counts of raping or sexually assaulting a child in North Carolina.

Further, a study shows that only 12 percent of child rapes are reported, according to the National Sexual Violence Resource Center — meaning the total number could be almost 10 times higher. Johnson told The Epoch Times:
"It's happening in every state — we just happen to be compiling the information. It's a mess. The ones that I cannot confirm as being illegal aliens, I do not put in the reports. So, our reports are obviously on the low side every month because we can't get around to every county, every arrest report, and we can't verify every one that we come across."
He said that in the last six years, he has only had to pull three reports off the site due to receiving incorrect information from the arresting agency.

MindMatters: How Universities Are Destroying Young Minds With Pathological Thinking

How has it come to be that our universities, societal norms and cultural values have taken a sharp turn down the road of instilling stupidity - instead of intelligence? When we see that the most tried and true (and ancient) approaches to the use of mind and emotions are being relegated to the dung heap, when we notice that many of the most advanced ideas put forth from cognitive behavioral therapy are being ignored - and indeed, inverted - what are we to make of this? On this week's MindMatters we look at these questions and make use of Greg Lukianoff and Jonathan Haidt's recent book The Coddling of the American Mind.
