WaPo's baseless anti-Russia hate-mongering

Washington Post
On issues mattering most, especially war and peace and anything about Russia, WaPo is a lying machine, feeding its readers rubbish, truth-telling suppressed.

Its editors take orders from Langley, featuring disinformation the spy agency wants published - consistently suppressing hard truths about US high crimes of war and against humanity.

WaPo's latest Russophobic broadside once again turned truth on its head, falsely accusing Putin of "disdain for the rules-based post-World War II order" - a US imperial specialty, not his, observing rule of law principles Washington rejects.

WaPo: "In two recent incidents involving the use of outlawed chemicals, Russia's answer has been a frantic parade of lies, bizarre explanations and attempts to distract from finding the truth."

Comment: The established mainstream media outlets are seeing their readers leave and their revenues crash, and it's partly due to the outright lies they spout on a daily basis. It's also worth noting that editors and journalists should be aware that incitement to war is actually a crime: Also check out SOTT radio's: Behind the Headlines: Fake News About Fake News: WaPo Blacklists SOTT.net as Kremlin Disinfo

NHS refuses mother's genetic test request for her 3 children who have 50/50 chance of inheriting father's life threatening disease

A HEARTBROKEN mum has told how the NHS are making her family wait 15 years to discover if her three young children have inherited the same devastating condition that is killing their young dad.

Since the diagnosis, the family have moved to a bungalow as the disease has left Jamie struggling to climb stairs or even feed himself.

Kellyann has also had to quit her job at a care home to become his full time carer.

Comment: That a parent is completely responsible for their children until they are able to give consent seems to reason that they can make these requests of their behalf. It states that these are guidelines and that this is a rare condition, and therefore an exception could be made. However it seems the age we live in bureaucrats are unwilling to adapt their policy to the situation at hand. It's only when a legal case is made or outrage through a publicity campaign that we sometimes see a semblance of empathy.

Because Israel: George Washington University BDS vote cancelled due to safety concerns following threatening flyers

Flyers posted on George Washington University campus ahead of a student government divestment vote.
On the eve of a divestment vote by George Washington University's (GWU) student senate, multiple students witnessed two men who they say clearly did not attend the university, posting spurious flyers around campus, all with the clear aim of undermining the credibility of the divestment resolution SR-S18-21 or "The Protection of Palestinian Human Rights Act".

Divest This Time, the student group responsible for the resolution, and supporters like Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) and Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) were subjected to the attacks, as were Student Association Senators (SA).

Flyers read "SJP Anti-semitic Cowards! Make BDS Vote Public", "JVP: Fake News Fake Jews" and "Be Proud Antisemites! Don't Vote BDS in Secret".

The vote was indeed cancelled due to safety concerns.

In an initial statement, the SA explained the cancellation noting their duty to "prioritize the safety of the student body and members of the Student Association."

Comment: It is a sad state of affairs when a couple of unidentified men armed with flyers and accusations of antisemitism can intimidate a student body which was on its way to do the right thing.

U.S. Jewish activists block the entrance to the office of Senator Ben Cardin (D-MD) on Monday, April 16 2018.


Five Democratic members of Congress published a statement calling on Israel 'to exercise utmost restraint in the use of deadly force' in Gaza


Washington - A group of around 30 demonstrators from the left-wing Jewish group "If Not Now" gathered Monday in front of the office of Senator Ben Cardin (D-MD) to protest Israel's use of deadly force against thousands of Palestinian demonstrators on the Israel-Gaza border in recent weeks. The demonstrators called on Cardin, one of the most senior Democratic Senators on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, to denounce Israel's response, specifically its use of live ammunition to keep Palestinian protesters away from the border fence between Israel and Gaza.

The protesters blocked the entrance to Cardin's office and asked: "How many more lives need to be lost until you will speak up about the violence in Gaza?" Cardin is slated to speak before the annual J Street conference in Washington later on Monday afternoon.

Comment: It is a step forward that US members of Congress speak against Israel's brutality. However, notice how they struggle to use the right words and fail to call the incident what it was: premeditated murders. See also:

Professor gives student ultimatum - Deny God, or drop my class!

no christian symbol
It shouldn't matter if you are an atheist, Christian, or follow any religion, you should have the Right, and freedom, to exercise your beliefs without fear of punishment or reprisal! These days we allow freedom of Choice, and Rights for just about everything in our society, however this girl had her Rights severely violated! What happened to this student was the equivalent of dictatorship in the classroom, and it's wrong on so many levels!

Grace Lewis, was taking a class offered by Polk State college, in Florida. The very smart student usually had a 3.9 GPA. She was punished with 4 straight zero grades, because of her belief in God. Her professor used his position of power over his student, and tried to force her to adopt his world views. When she tried to stand up for herself he retaliated, by punishing her with undeserved failing grades. It appears she wasn't the only victim of this bullying either.

Comment: College campuses are the hot-bed of the liberal atheist agenda and the erosion of free speech, where professors use there positions to indoctrinate young minds with their political ideology. How valuable is a college degree when the institutions are clearly teaching kids not to think?

Rasana (India) (AFP) - There are no Muslims left in the village of Rasana, which has become a symbol of India's rape crisis after the brutal murder of an eight-year-old Muslim girl blamed on Hindu men.

Police say the girl was raped and killed as part of an attempt by some of the village's majority Hindus to evict Bakarwal Muslim nomads, who graze their cattle in the hills in the summer months.

It seems to have worked: the girl's family have headed for the Kashmir hills under police protection. Other Muslim families in the community of around 100 people all left after the rape in January.

At the empty home of the dead girl's family, five armed police kept guard half asleep in chairs outside.

Police say the child was drugged, held captive in a Hindu temple for five days, and repeatedly raped before being beaten to death.

Comment: This horrible case appears to be the one described in this article:

Watch your mouth: Uganda's president wants to ban oral sex because "mouth is for eating"

president Museveni Uganda
"The mouth is for eating, not for sex. We know the address of sex," says President Museveni.

Uganda's President Yoweri Museveni has issued what he calls a "public warning" against oral sex.

The president claims the practice has been pushed on Ugandans by "outsiders," and argues that the mouth is solely for eating.

"Let me take this opportunity to warn our people publicly about the wrong practices indulged in and promoted by some of the outsiders," he told the press during an address.


Comment: Surely Uganda has one or a hundred more urgent issues to look into other than whether people should be having oral sex or not?

Thousands in US will not pay up on tax day because it funds war

no taxes for war
A group of activists, who are openly refusing to pay their taxes to the IRS, are instead donating the money to humanitarian programs.

As the United States military and its allies continue to escalate conflicts in Syria and throughout the Middle East, an anti-war group is carrying out nationwide protests on Tax Day to oppose war funding.

The National War Tax Resistance Coordinating Committee (NWTRCC), made a statement last week calling for an end to war and proposing a massive movement of tax resistance. The organization has coordinated Tax Day protests since 1983 and their message is more important now than it has ever been.

According to the group's website:
"The National War Tax Resistance Coordinating Committee supports individuals who refuse to pay for war, and promotes war tax resistance in the context of a broad range of nonviolent strategies for social change. Through the redirection of our tax dollars, war tax resisters contribute directly to the struggle for peace and justice for all.

NWTRCC is a coalition of local, regional, and national groups and individuals from across the United States. For everyone interested in or actively refusing to pay taxes for war, NWTRCC offers information, referral, support, resources, publicity, campaign sponsorship, and connection to an international network of conscientious objectors to war taxes."

Comment: So little has remained of the anti-war movement in the US these days, that it seems a wonder when events things do happen:
