Jailed ex-PM Khan's party claims it won 177 seats in Pakistan elections

Khan's PTI-backed independent candidates accuse election commission of tampering with results of Feb. 8 polls
Pakistan
The party of jailed former Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday claimed it won 177 seats of the lower house of parliament in the Feb. 8 general elections, accusing the election commission of tampering with the results.

Over 100 Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI)-backed independent candidates gathered in Islamabad and accused officers of the election body of "snatching" public mandate by turning their win into a defeat. They were led by lawyer Salman Akram Raja, who also contested the elections but lost.

"I won the National Assembly seat of NA-128 from Lahore with a lead of over 100,000 votes, but the returning officer notified my rival as winner," Raja told reporters.

Polish farmers blocking defense aid from reaching Kiev

Ukrainian trucks
© CopyrightThousands of trucks are parked on the border between Ukraine and Poland.
Agriculturalists have been staging protests at the border for months, decrying the flow of cheap Ukrainian produce into the country.

Polish farmers demanding an end to the inflow of cheaper produce are blocking trucks carrying Kiev-bound military aid, a Ukrainian activist has claimed. The protesters had earlier vowed to disrupt the transportation of goods not only through vehicle checkpoints, but also via rail.

Polish truckers and farmers began staging regular blockades on the border with Ukraine in October 2023, protesting against the EU's decision to exempt Ukrainian haulers from having to seek permits to enter the bloc. The activists insist that the measures introduced since the conflict between Moscow and Kiev erupted in early 2022 have led to unfair competition and driven down the price of agricultural produce.

Comment: The Polish farmers are protecting their livelihood as cheap produce from Ukraine is being dumped in Poland and thus crashing the prices for the local produce too. Yet, the farmers are now being called pro-Russian for daring to fight for the ability to farm.

'Stalinist' $370M judgment against Trump should be vacated immediately

Donald Trump Arthur Engoron
© Fox NewsNew York Judge Arthur Engoron ruled that former President Trump must pay over $350 million in damages to the state of New York as the result of his civil fraud trial.
This past week Judge Arthur Engoron of New York State Supreme Court, the lowest level of courts of general jurisdiction, levied a mammoth fine of some $370 million, including interest, against Donald Trump for purported fraud under a New York statute.

The term fraud is used loosely since no one was defrauded, an element of a cause of action under common law fraud, and no one was harmed, also an element, and there was no proof of reliance, another element. This is fraud "in the air," as the saying goes: no harm by no one against no one for no loss by anyone.

No one testified that they lost a penny from the purported fraud, or that they would not have wanted to deal with Trump as a customer. No one came forward to complain, except Attorney General Letitia James. But more about this modern-day Torquemada later in this column.

On the night of February 18, an enterprise in the city of Lviv in Western Ukraine burned down. The local authorities of the city and the region confirmed the fire without giving any comments. It turned out that there was a secret the Ukrainian authorities attempted to hide.

The locals reported that an explosion thundered in the industrial facility located on Antonovich 116 in Lviv. After the explosion thundered at the facility, a large fire on the area of about 400 square meters broke out at the building, which reportedly burned down. The head of the regional administration claimed that the investigation of the incident was launched by the special services and the police.

A Massachusetts charter school ended a girls' varsity basketball game at halftime on February 8 after multiple players were injured by a trans-identified male on the opposing team.

The coach of the Collegiate Charter School of Lowell Girls' Basketball Team made the decision to end the game against KIPP Academy "after watching a third player injured in the game," a press release from the school states.

"The bench was already depleted going into the game with the 12-player roster having four players unable to play. When the coach saw three more girls go down in the first half leaving him with five players, he made the call to end to end the game early."

Comment: Along with "Lia Thomas", "Rachel McKinnon", and other hormonal cheats, not only does this (carefully unnamed) player deprived a girl of a spot on her school's sports team, he poses a physical threat to the rest of the league. How is this emblematic of "inclusivity"?

British police officers persuaded children not to report sexual abuse and tried to shift responsibility to them

British police officers discouraged children from reporting sexual abuse, shifted blame to pedophile victims, and ignored reports of threats and harassment by child molesters.

On February 9, 2024, a report on the activities of the London police was published, which states that the response of law enforcement agencies of the UK capital to various offenses "is currently not effective". In particular, the document claims that police officers not only repeatedly ignored complaints from underage victims of sexual abuse, but also discouraged them from reporting, and tried to shift responsibility for what they had done onto children. An inspection by His Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary found at least 244 cases of neglect and dereliction of duty on the part of London's law enforcement agencies. The Inspectorate also found that in at least one case, police officers unreasonably characterized a 12-year-old girl rape victim as "regularly engaging in promiscuous sexual activity with adult males."

The inspection found that the number and seriousness of the Metropolitan Police's breaches could have long-term consequences for both the safety of minors and the overall image of British law enforcement. Following the inspection, His Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary ordered immediate improvements in at least three areas of policing, as well as indefinitely postponing the lifting of London's special measures regime, which was introduced in June 2022 amid revelations of "systemic weaknesses in tackling crime". Kevin Satterworth, the London police's head of public affairs, said he was "deeply sorry" for the children and families who had been let down by law enforcement and pledged to increase scrutiny over the allocation of police resources to "get on with the job and win back the trust of Londoners". However, as victims of criminal negligence by British police officers claim, such statements from London's police force are "coordinately different from their actual actions," and promises to draw attention to issues of relevance and importance to public safety "have been made every other day for a year now."

Germany suffering shortage of unskilled labor despite influx of 1 million migrants, will 'streamline' work permits to bring in MORE

migrants, Germany, asylum seekers
© CHRISTOF STACHE / AFPFILE PHOTO. Migrants arrive at the first registration point for asylum seekers in Erding near Munich, southern Germany. Despite the influx of immigrants, there remains a shortage of unskilled labor in the economy. To address this issue, the Federal Employment Agency is now seeking to recruit tens of thousands more migrants to Germany.
In Nuremberg, Germany — Amidst mounting concerns over staffing shortages in vital sectors such as restaurants and airports, the Federal Agency is taking proactive measures to address the issue, drawing upon the Skilled Immigration Act for support. Instances of understaffing, notably conspicuous in tasks like baggage handling, have spurred urgent action, the German press reports.

However, recognizing the limitations of relying solely on mass immigration to alleviate the shortage, various factors come into play. Among these are the staggering volume of asylum applications — totaling 351,000 in the previous year alone — and the substantial demographic of over one million Ukrainians seeking sanctuary and depending on public assistance.

Comment: Whilst there is indeed a difference between vetted migrants who are brought in through work visas, that this initiative is even needed exposes how there are probably a million, mostly male, young migrants who are not in employment; and it's likely that they're also increasingly bored, and dissatisfied.

Regarding the number of migrants in Germany, Deutsche Welle reports that, as of 2022, immigrants make up over 18% of the population, with over 6 million migrating over the last decade; between 2013 and 2022. As of 2019, at least 1.1 million of those were 'asylum seekers' - taking into account the 350,000 for 2023 mentioned in the article above, a conservative estimate would be at least 1.5 million.

The fallout of this 'demographic crisis' is already becoming evident, and with poverty increasing, the situation is likely to get much, much worse.

Disney board wants to hide political donations, spending on sex changes from shareholders, docs reveal

The Walt Disney Company board wants to hide key financial data from the public, particularly as it relates to their funding of the transgender movement and donations to political candidates, documents reviewed by the Daily Caller reveal.

The 2024 proxy vote ballot for Disney's annual shareholder meeting, scheduled for April 2, reveals the board doesn't want the public, or even their own shareholders, to know how much Disney spends on "gender transition compensation and benefits" for its staff. Despite the board's suggested vote to shareholders, the National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC) and National Center for Public Policy Research (NCPPR) are urging the company to release the data.

In Disney's 2024 "Notice of Annual Meeting of Shareholders and Proxy Statement," Disney details how the NLPC and NCPPR notified the company that they intend to present proposals focused on these issues. Within the same document, Disney "affirms" that people who suffer from gender dysphoria can "transition to a different sex." However, "an increasing body of scientific evidence shows no benefits result from such medical treatments," the NLPC argues. They go on to cite the European and American medical community's "increasing" caution about gender-transition "therapies."

Fatah's Sabri Saidam says crisis will 'escalate beyond borders of Palestine' if Israel imposes Ramadan restrictions on Al Aqsa Mosque

The crisis in the occupied West Bank is so acute it can be fixed only by "another Jesus", said a senior Palestinian Authority politician, warning of economic collapse in the coming weeks and further escalation if Israel imposes restrictions during Ramadan.

Dr Sabri Saidam, deputy secretary general of the Fatah Central Committee and an adviser to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, told The National that the war in Gaza has been pushing the West Bank closer to breaking point.

"Ramadan is a holy month and emotions are charged even further, so things will escalate beyond the borders of Palestine" if Israel prevents travel to Al Aqsa Mosque in East Jerusalem, he said. "Maybe it will get worse - much worse."

Caitlin Johnston: Nobody who gets Gaza wrong is worth listening to

gaza protest
I saw a comment from an Israel defender saying "You just lack the intellect to comprehend the complexities of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict!"

Just in the last few days we learned that Israeli snipers have been deliberately picking off children in Gaza by shooting them in the head, that Israeli troops summarily executed a prisoner in handcuffs after sending him into a hospital to deliver a message to evacuate, and that Egypt has begun constructing refugee camps in the Sinai Desert to facilitate the ethnic cleansing of Gazans.

"Complexities". This isn't complex.
