84% of Canadians think the ICC should investigate Israeli officials for war crimes

ICC international Criminal court

"This demonstrates that Canada's tendency to apply double standards when it comes to Israel is very unpopular with Canadians," IJV's National Coordinator Corey Balsam
A new survey conducted by EKOS Research Associates shows that an overwhelming majority of Canadians would support International Criminal Court (ICC) investigation of Israel.

The poll, which was co-sponsored by Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East (CJPME), Independent Jewish Voices Canada (IJV), and the United Network for Justice and Peace in Palestine-Israel (UNJPPI), found that 84% of Canadians think the ICC should investigate alleged war crimes committed by Israeli officials. 86% of Canadians do not believe that the human rights record of Israel should be overlooked because the country is an ally of Canada. 82% want Canada's current policy toward Jerusalem to be maintained, with the city being shared rather than it being recognized as Israel's capital exclusively.

Reduction of social contacts including in people's homes will be the "key ingredient" across all levels of the Government's mid-term plan because the disease is most prominent in homes, the Taoiseach has said.

Micheál Martin said that keeping schools and third level institutions open will be the Government's top priority, ahead of pubs, aviation and sports.

There would be restrictions across all five proposed levels in the proposals for the next six months to be announced on Tuesday, "even in the home because that's where the prevalence of the disease is most dangerous and still alive in too many households".

Mr Martin's comments come as cases of coronavirus rise in Ireland with a particular focus on the capital where the disease is said to be spreading rapidly in households.

The pharma loaded US soldier - Part 1: Taking inventory of risks

veteran PTSD
Since 2001, the modern combatant has endured numerous deployments overseas to Afghanistan and Iraq after a decade of relative peace following the Persian Gulf War in 1990. Across all services, members have engaged in traumatic combat situations with enemy, friendly, and civilian casualties resulting in 13% of veterans diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). [Citations referenced in this article are contained in the full report.]

Military personnel have returned from dangerous deployments to face both public scrutiny about disputed wars and personal struggles with recollections of harrowing ordeals. Military encounter barriers to therapeutic interventions, with a priority given to drug therapy. US military members are routinely taking up to 19 prescription medications to enhance performance and reduce stress. The collateral damage is that, when current active duty, reserve members, and the National Guard are included, 20 veterans die by suicide every day in the US.

Suicide Stats

The 2018 Department of Defense Suicide Report (DoDSER 2018) details 325 active duty suicides with an additional 1,375 suicide attempts by 1,219 unique individuals. The reserve component reported 81 suicides and the National Guard reported 135 suicides. The 2019 National Veterans Suicide Prevention Annual Report summarizes 6,139 veteran suicides in 2019. Veteran suicides have been increasing annually since 2006. The number of veteran suicides has exceeded 6,000 annually from 2008 to 2017. Military members and veterans have a higher risk of suicide than their civilian counterparts. Veterans ages 18-34 having the highest suicide rate among all military subgroups with an increase of 76% from 2005 to 2017.

Comment: And that's not the only way these soldiers are being betrayed by Big Pharma and the top brass of the military:

Harvard goes full police state, asks for photos and video of social distancing violations

Accused students judged under undefined evidence standard

Unlike in prison, you're unlikely to get seriously ill with COVID-19 at Harvard University. But like in prison, private eyes are watching your every move.

The Ivy League university not only coerced students into giving up their freedom of association pledging an oath not to violate social distancing rules in order to live on campus, but it's encouraging rat finks to provide evidence of their peers behaving like ordinary college kids.

Harvard created a new online "form for reporting social distancing violations" that includes "space for photos and videos," The Harvard Crimson reports. It basically sounds like a police report, asking the rat fink to provide full details of the incident. (Allegedly they won't be able to file anonymously. Let's see if Harvard keeps it that way.)

Once the newly created Star Chamber "Community Council" receives a report from a rat fink, the "perpetrator" may get an "oral warning" for low-level offenses (undefined) or a formal review for more serious acts of hanging out with people.


Comment: Another absurd and soul-crushing policy enacted by a so-called institute of "higher learning" in the US. The list goes on and on, and hopefully many more young people will become wise to the ideological, authoritarian and political agendas now at play in all too many colleges and universities in the US:

Two undocumented immigrants suspected in the gang slaying of a 16-year-old girl in Baltimore were released because of sanctuary city policies, despite requests from federal immigration officials, officials said Tuesday.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) said it lodged three immigration detainers on three men charged in the May 29 death of Gabriela Ardon. Five people are charged in the killing -- three of whom were living in the United States illegally.

"In this case, two of the suspects arrested had previously been encountered by ICE, but due to state and local policies that put politics above public safety, they were released to the street," said Acting Baltimore Field Office Director Francisco Madrigal. "This is the worst-case scenario when detainers are not honored."

A Moscow woman is suing the city's mayor's office and demanding that it stops using a facial recognition system on the Russian capital's streets, after she bought data on the dark web about her own movements.

Anna Kuznetsova filed a lawsuit for 100,000 rubles ($1,300) of compensation, after she found a person selling data online and anonymously ordered information about herself. Kuznetsova works for Roskomsvoboda, a project which promotes freedom of information and privacy on the internet.

"She sent a photo, and two days later received a report for the previous month with detailed information about where her face was recorded," said Kuznetsova's lawyer, Ekaterina Abashina. "Almost all of the addresses matched the girl's actual movements. It cost 16 thousand rubles ($210)."

Bojo threatens 2nd total lockdown to 'save Christmas'

BORIS Johnson warns that only tough love will flatten a second camel-like hump on Britain's coronavirus graph and save Christmas.

The Prime Minister gave his stark message as he told Sun readers that further curfew measures, such as shutting pubs at 10pm, will be needed if his "rule of six" is not obeyed.

He says more deaths are coming and an "awful lot of people" could still die of Covid-19 if it is allowed to "rip" through the country again.

Crowds turned out on August 29, 2019 to hear Robert F Kennedy, Jr speak at a Berlin rally against Covid-19 restrictions and other dangers for children's health
The German media are reporting 38,000 people in attendance on August 29 in Berlin while YouTubers claim one million or more. Not a word is being mentioned about Robert Kennedy's presence at the event on official networks even as the historic speech of the former U.S. president's nephew floods social media. Never has the gap between the institutional press and the alternative media been so wide. What really happened on August 29th in Berlin?

Germany experienced one of the biggest demonstrations in its history on August 29, despite repeated attempts by the Berlin authorities to ban the event. The announcement of the participation of attorney Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. as a last-minute guest reinforced the public's mobilization and determination to turn out and defend their freedoms being threatened by the health agendas related to the response to the "pandemic."

Wreckage of down cocaine smuggling plane
Venezuela's military has shot down a US-registered aircraft carrying drugs, Interior Minister Nestor Reverol announced. According to the interior minister, the incident took place on Tuesday, with the aircraft downed after illegally entering Venezuelan airspace in the province of Zulia near the border with Colombia, RIA Novosti reported.

"After the illegal air unit was detected by the radars of the Comprehensive Aerospace Defense Command, the National Bolivarian Armed Forces activated all protocols established in the Control Law for the Comprehensive Defense of Airspace," Reverol tweeted, referring to a 2013 law authorising the destruction of any suspected cartel plane operating in Venezuelan airspace.

"We remain on permanent alert, monitoring our airspace to prevent it from being used for illicit drug trafficking from Colombia, which is the largest producer of cocaine in the world," Reverol added, in a possible reference to the plane's cargo.

Miami restaurant unhappy with the visit made by Kamala Harris as customers threaten to boycott

VP nominee Kamala Harris invades Florida restaurant
The campaign for Kamala Harris and her running mate has hit a rough patch in the state of Florida. Support for the Democrat ticket among Hispanic voters is eroding, so some quick visits have been hastily planned in the Sunshine State.

While Joe Biden was playing selections from his music library on his phone for a presser, Kamala made a visit to a Miami restaurant, with the press in tow. In the town of Doral, with a heavy Venezuelan population, the candidate glad-handed and joked with customers for a photo-op. This turned out to be a poor decision.

Note how we wrote "hastily" there? Well, it turned out they never contacted the restaurant ahead of time. Had they, the campaign staff might have learned she was not entirely welcomed.

Comment: South Florida Latin community tells Harris 'no más!'
It turns out Kamala Harris was never invited to the Latin restaurant and the owner is furious after her unannounced visit sparked major backlash from the Latino community. Andres Garcia, president of the board of directors of Amaize Latin Flavors restaurant slammed Kamala Harris after the Latino community called for a boycott of the restaurant.

Garcia said his organization does not use the restaurant for political reasons and he respects every individual in the organization. "I will never take a political position," Garcia explained.

Latinos for Trump came out and lined the streets of Miami last Thursday to make it clear they reject Kamala Harris.

"No Communista. No Socialista" one sign said.

The conservative Cubans and Venezuelans in Miami were not impressed with Kamala Harris's pandering.

Joe Biden is currently in Florida pandering to the Latino community as he loses support among Hispanic voters.
