Gang Rape Of Aid Workers In South Sudan Is A Turning Point

It was a tragic turning point. On July 11, South Sudanese soldiers invaded "The soldiers just came to the bathroom where all the girls were hiding and they just picked us out of the bathroom one by one," 

says one of the women who was in the hotel. She asked that her name not be used. Despite calls for help to the U.N. compound a mile down the road, no one came.a hotel in the capital city of Juba and gang-raped foreign aid workers.

"The soldiers just came to the bathroom where all the girls were hiding and they just picked us out of the bathroom one by one,"

says one of the women who was in the hotel. She asked that her name not be used. Despite calls for help to the U.N. compound a mile down the road, no one came.

Even in a country where violence is commonplace, where a simmering civil war has been reignited, where the humanitarian needs are among the most pressing in the world, this attack sent shock waves through the aid community.

"Certainly something changed and things happened that we were not used to seeing happen," says Steve McCann, a security and risk assessment specialist.

And now the repercussions are apparent: Some relief agencies have evacuated staff, and others have scaled back their operations.

 

 

 

 

Hillary Clinton's for-profit university problem

It's got all the makings of a conspiracy theory. After Hillary Clinton After Hillary Clinton became secretary of state, Bill Clinton received $17.6 million in payments from a for-profit university. became secretary of state, Bill Clinton received $17.6 million in payments from a for-profit university.

Since that time, another organization with a connection to that university received almost $90 million in grants from an agency that's part of the State Department. Critics of the Clintons have cried foul. But is there really something shady going on?

There is no shortage of connections between the Clintons and Laureate International Universities.

Laureate is a for-profit university -- the same kind Hillary Clinton has railed against for saddling students with huge debts. "[Students] find little support once they actually enroll, or they graduate and discover that, when it comes to finding a job, their degree isn't worth what they thought," she told an audience last year.

Laureate has about one million students worldwide, mostly in Latin America, with five schools in the United States.

The suit, which describes Fox News as a misogynistic, sex-fueled cult, also alleges that newly appointed Fox News co-president Bill Shine encouraged her to drop her harassment claims.

"Fox News masquerades as a defender of traditional family values, but behind the scenes, it operates like a sex-fueled, Playboy Mansion-like cult, steeped in intimidation, indecency and misogyny," Tantaros claims in the lawsuit, first obtained by The New York Times. Tantaros' suit comes nearly seven weeks after former Fox News host Gretchen Carlson accused Ailes of sexual harassment, prompting at least 20 women to come forward with their own stories of harassment at the hands of Ailes. Ailes has denied all the allegations.

 

 

 

 

Iraq stops would-be child bomber for ISIS

(CNN)A boy stands shaking in the street. Fear etched across his face. Footage appears to show officers restrain the visibly upset boy while they carefully but expertly cut the belt from the youth's torso. Once the belt has been removed, the boy is scooped up into custody. "Don't be afraid," the officer can be heard saying. Hussein begins to cry. Then scream. "Sorry uncle. I'm sorry." Two men flank him on either side as a third rips through the boy's Barcelona football shirt to reveal what appears to be an explosive belt. The Iraqi security officers grip the boy tightly. A small slip of the hand and the boy could reach the trigger and all four would die. This was the dramatic moment Iraqi police stopped Hussein, a 15-year-old suspected in a suicide bombing attempt for ISIS in the Iraqi city of Kirkuk on Sunday.

"Let me go," the boy whimpers. The officer shouts back: "We will take you down and go to God together."

Transgender murder sparks Turkish outcry

The murder of Hande Kader, a transgender woman, has caused an outcry "I was about to leave the morgue. I felt a sense of lightness for not having found her there. At the last minute, a doctor there said, 'There's also a burned body - look at that as well.' I did. I told them identifying features. They then looked at the computer, at the report. The doctor put his hand on my back and gave his condolences. I lost myself," he said. in Turkey's biggest city Istanbul.

A Father Vows To Save His Daughter From A Marriage He Forced Her Into

It was one of the worst moments of Durga's life: the morning her father A Father Vows To Save His Daughter From A Marriage He Forced Her Intosuddenly announced that in about a week's time she would have to get married. She was 15 years old.

Her husband-to-be was in his 40s, had barely been to school and had a reputation as a heavy drinker.

Even by the standards of their village in Northern India — where child marriages are still commonplace — this was a singularly bad match. "I told my father, 'I won't do it,' " Durga recalls. "Papa said, 'No, you have to.

Then my grandparents came in the room. And they said, 'You don't have a choice. Everyone gets married like this.

You're not special.' " Talking about it — it's all suddenly too much for Durga.

She buries her face in a pink scarf she's wearing and stifles a sob.

"Please," she finally whispers. "I don't want to remember. Sometimes I think, 'Did that really happen?' "

The whole ceremony felt like a bad dream, she says. She was too upset to speak, to brush her hair — even to change into her dress. "So they just pulled it on me, over my regular clothes."

Ethiopian runner makes protest sign as he crosses line in Rio

An Olympic marathon runner from Ethiopia staged a daring protest My relatives are in prison and if they talk about democratic rights they are killed. I raised my hands to support with the Oromo protest." The marathon runner said that he might be killed if he returned. "If not kill me, they will put me in prison," he said. "I have not decided yet, but maybe I will move to another country."against his home government when he crossed the line in Rio on Sunday. As he took the silver medal, Feyisa Lilesa crossed his arms above - a gesture made by the Oromo people who have suffered brutal police crackdowns. Lilesa is from Oromia, home to most of Ethiopia's 35 million Oromo people. He repeated the protest gesture later at a press conference, saying his life would be in danger if he returned home.

Al Roker, Billy Bush Fight Over Ryan Lochte: “He Lied!”

Al Roker and Billy Bush had an on-air fight on the “Today” show over Ryan Lochte and his robbery claims. Watch below.

As Gossip Cop reported, Lochte claimed he was robbed at gunpoint in Rio while making his way back to the Olympic village last weekend.

Police were unable to corroborate his version of events, and it emerged that Lochte was actually in an altercation at a local gas station, where an armed security guard demanded payment for alleged vandalism.

On Friday, Lochte issued an apology statement for his behavior.

During the ongoing “Today” coverage of the Olympics, Roker and Bush had an increasingly tense argument over whether Lochte “lied” or “embellished.” Bush, to whom Lochte first told his robbery story, believed the “kid” only messed up “some details.” But Roker wasn’t having it.

 

 

 

 

Turkey wedding suicide bomber 'was child aged 12-14'

A suicide bombing which killed 51 people in the Turkish city of Gaziantep Mr Erdogan said the so-called Islamic State (IS) was behind the attack, which targeted a Kurdish wedding party. Gaziantep, near the Syrian border, is known to have several IS cells.

The bomb wounded 69 people, Mr Erdogan added, 17 of them seriously. was carried out by a 12 to 14-year-old, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said.

Mr Erdogan said the so-called Islamic State (IS) was behind the attack, which targeted a Kurdish wedding party. Gaziantep, near the Syrian border, is known to have several IS cells.

The bomb wounded 69 people, Mr Erdogan added, 17 of them seriously.

The bomber targeted the wedding guests as they danced in the street.

The BBC's Seref Isler, who is from Gaziantep, says the city of 1.5 million was already on edge because of events in Syria, where IS has been battling Syrian Kurdish forces. A suicide bomber believed to have links to IS killed two policemen in Gaziantep in May.

The choice of target seems designed for maximum effect: those enjoying a moment of a celebration at a wedding party. If this was an attack by so-called Islamic State, it could be a response to the jihadists' recent loss of territory in Syria.

Kurdish fighters with the US-led coalition drove them out of a stronghold, Manbij. Perhaps this attack on a Kurdish wedding in Gaziantep was an act of revenge.

Turkey fury over Islamism claims in leaked German report

Donald Trump of Europe is Turkey's Erdogan

No need to guess what a Donald Trump personality type would be According to public broadcaster ARD, the document said that "the numerous statements of solidarity and action of support for the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas and groups of armed Islamist opposition in Syria by the ruling party AKP and President [Recep Tayyip] Erdogan underline their ideological affinity to the Muslim Brothers".like at the helm of the greatest nation on earth. There is a great example of a man that equals Donald Trumps radical disposition in Turkey by the name of Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Pending on who has pissed him off, people have gone to jail, mass firings have taken place, all while he has been accused of waisting huge sums of money to upgrade the Presidential living environment.

Last year, Turkey shot down a Russian fighter jet, and Recep Tayyip Erdogan told Putin to kiss his ass, but today, he has taken the Russian perspective on Syria, and is now shaking Putin's hand.

2 Years ago, Recep Tayyip Erdogan told Israel to kiss his ass, and now, he's mending that relationship and wants to do business with Israel, even after many lives of his own citizens were senselessly killed in a raid on a ship by Israeli's military.

Radical, Ignorant, Childish, and Dangerous

behavior in the president of Turkey, which is the exact type of behavior we see in Trump today, and yesterday.

Just to put things in perspective, sanitation workers at the time made about $1.27 an hour — three times more than a farmworker.was in the 20th Century, will cause the entire world to change their perspective of how great America has been to the citizens of the American Nation.

and have done great harm to this nation's moral compass

Looking into the mirror of the past, for this nation, speaks specifically to the Americans who have

acted in a manner that, when exposed to the world,

generates great internal pain and embarrassment, not to mention the degree of humiliation based on exposed hypocritical behavior.

her willingness to lie at the drop of a dime in situations that absolutely does not require a lie or exaggeration to be expressed, and her callous attitude and callous disposition that she positions her physical body in, when she is caught, and forced to admit a lie, or forced acquiescence to one of many past poor decisions and poor judgment,
all will suggest that Hillary's ass sitting in the top seat of power, will solidify her "kiss my ass attitude",
that will be on display when she make her selections
for any and all cabinet members.

 

So..., How Diverse will Hillary's Cabinet Be

 

 

FACT:

 

Hillary's voice was all but "null and void", during the harsh and roller coaster times of the Trayvon Martin incident.

Hillary's voice was all but "null and void", during the choke down death of Eric Garner, as well as during the very recent death of a Chicago youth shot to death while walking away from police officers....

 

However, from 2012 - 2015,
Hillary's voice was being heard behind closed doors, loud and clear, at big bank functions,
at large cooperation meetings, during which, Hillary gave many speeches, while accepting $200k plus sharing her voice to all the rich and powerful.
In fact, Hillary's voice was so valuable, to those rich and powerful, she made upwards of $25 Million plus in cash for sharing her scraggly, odious voice.

 

So... How Diverse will Hillary Clinton's Cabinet Be?

The Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt has cemented his place as a legend of athletics at the Rio Olympics, earning his ninth gold medal in as many attempts. He's so fast that he could have finished 100m in the time it's taken you to read up to here. As he bids goodbye to the Games, let's slice and dice his stats, shall we? How long has he run for? As a sprinter, Bolt spends very little time actually running. In Olympics finals, he has been running for only 114 seconds. That's not even a full two minutes

Mom of autistic man at center of Charles Kinsey shooting 7/29/16

Law Enforcement, Unconscious of 

Civilian Citizen's Humanism

 

The Long Lasting Negative Affects
of a life changing interaction with a Police Officer...,
is measured by the degree to which the mind of the individual, can maintain calm...,
without full collapse.

 

The extent of the internal damage done to the individual, is based on the individual, however, no individual is ever strong enough to feel "no conscientious mal affects"..., if he/she, or a loved one, is harmed by a police officer, specifically, because we are all human beings first, and the nature of all human beings..., is the uniqueness of the human being,
to feel the pain of others,
and the pain of a loved one.

 

Why does Police Departments Blame Citizens?

 

Those who "choose the life of police officer",
decide for themselves, to participate in a career that ensures conflict with a citizen, on a daily basis, and when the police officer becomes consumed by the daily conflict with citizens, and acquiesce to the "us against them", "gang member style disposition" towards citizens, then that police officer...
ought to be removed, and never allowed to wield a badge ever again.

 

Unconscious Loyalty to the Department

 

It matters to the entirety of a city, when
"1" Police Officer, is found not guilty... for a fatal shooting,
when the citizens interpret the shooting as being
"unjustified",
and when the entire justice system, blindly supports the police officer, while showing clear favoritism toward the police officer, as compared to the lost life of even "1" citizen..,
it is the citizen's of the city, who have been double victimized by those who display human character traits of loyalty...
to the umbrella to which they "serve with", and not a display of empathy for those to whom they have pledged to
"SERVE & PROTECT".

Iraq Opens Airspace to Russia After Iran Deployment

Russia's failed maneuver will cost Russian Citizens $Trillions

In the late 1980's, Russia's 20 plus years in Afghanistan, in an Iraq Opens Airspace to Russia After Iran Deployment equally as failed attempt as the U.S. current 12 plan in Afghanistan, cost Russian's $Trillions, which played a huge role in the Russian collapse of the 1990s.

Today, Russia, a nation that runs towards any conflict with glee, based on full expectation of "exploitations",

is climbing into a hole that is far to deep for them to easily withdraw from in Iraq.

Russia, already has conflicts going on in the Ukraine, and in Syria, and now Russia is playing tag between Iran, by using their Iran lands to launch attacks in Syria, while shaking hands with Iraq's leadership, in what can only be construed as...

playing with a snake with two heads.

This isn't a prudent move at all..., in fact, this move will get uglier before it ever gets better.

When leaders of a nation are wrong, it is the citizens who suffer.

Louisiana flood: Worst US disaster since Hurricane Sandy, Red Cross says

Using L.A. Flood Water to douse C.A. Wild Fires

WHY NOT

ASKFMB's U.S ANTI-FLOODING SYSTEM

is a concept to move huge sums of water from anywhere in the country to another side of the country, in a matter of hours.

The perfect example is taking place today, in that, in the recent days, Louisiana has suffered from 26 plus inches of rain that has devistated thousands of homes.  While on the west coast, Califonia is being subjected to wildfires that are unpredictable and destroying property and homes.

ASKFMB's U.S ANTI-FLOODING SYSTEM

concept is a design to suck huge sums of water from one location in the nation, and move it to another, which in this case, would provide the removal of huge sums of flooding water from Baton Rouge, and send it directly to the locations of the huge wildfires taking place in California.

WHY CAN'T WE DO THIS...

Simple technology can accomplish, while creating millions of jobs all around this nation, while building a concept that provides some mitegation to all the floodings that devistate this nation today, and well into the future.

WHY NOT

The prosecution of current and former state employees for their role in Flint's lead-contaminated water crisis likely will face an early test over whether one of the most serious charges can even be levied against the middle- and lower-level government officials.
