Bloodied and broken: The battle against ISIS in the Philippines

Iligan, Philippines (CNN)During the rainy season on the southern Philippines When the rain finally comes, it is a vicious, torrential downpour, which ends as abruptly as it begins.

While the rains come and go, the flow of wounded into a military hospital in the north of the island does not. Just as two ambulances pull into the hospital at Camp Evangelista in Cagayan de Oro, the skies once again open up, muddying the dirt courtyard. They discharge yet another 10 soldiers, wounded in what is becoming a bloody, protracted insurgency by ISIS-affiliated militants.

Lt. Col. Jonna Dalaguit, the facility's chief medical officer, looks exhausted from the constant stream of broken men who are ferried into her hospital, brought in displaying the wounds of war -- "bullet wounds, blast wounds, fractures," she tells CNN.island of Mindanao, storms are foreshadowed by flashes of lightning in the distance, visible above the treetops.

It's been like this for a month, since ISIS-aligned fighters stormed the northern Mindanao city of Marawi, capturing key government buildings and setting fire to churches and schools.

Russia recalling Kislyak amid election controversy, report says

WASHINGTON — Sergey Kislyak, Russia's ambassador to the United States Citing three unnamed sources, BuzzFeed News reported that Kislyak is scheduled to leave Washington next month, following a July 11 going-away party for him at the St. Regis Hotel, just two blocks away from the White House. and a key player in his nation's interference in the 2016 elections here, is being recalled by his government, according to a report released Sunday.

Citing three unnamed sources,

BuzzFeed News reported that Kislyak is scheduled to leave Washington next month, following a July 11 going-away party for him at the St. Regis Hotel, just two blocks away from the White House.

Kislyak, 66, had been reported to be heading to New York to lead Russia's delegation at the United Nations.

His return to Russia will mark the end of his 10-year tenure as

Russia's leading diplomat to the United States and makes him

another casualty of the growing controversy over the

Russian activity.

Kislyak has been a key figure in the growing investigation

by a special counsel and multiple congressional committees into Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election that put President Trump in the White House.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Some U.S. States Relax Restrictions On Cladding Suspected In Grenfell Tower Fire

The type of siding or "cladding" used on the Grenfell Tower in London — and suspected of feeding the massive fire that killed dozens of residents — is not allowed on the exterior of tall buildings across most of the

U.S.

But a few states and the District of Columbia have relaxed their building codes in recent years and have started to permit the material's use.

The cladding installed on Grenfell Tower as part of a 2016 refurbishing project has become a focus for investigators. NPR's Frank Langfitt has confirmed that the cladding had a combustible polyethylene core rather than a more fire-resistant

mineral core.

At least 79 people died last week when the fire spread quickly through the 24-story public housing tower. Investigators say a refrigerator started the fire, which then spread to the cladding outside.

Prime Minister Theresa May told Parliament this week that similar cladding on other buildings has been found to be combustible.

 Reuters reports that at least 600 buildings in England use the same type of cladding and that authorities are testing the material to determine whether other buildings are at risk of fire.

In the United States, most jurisdictions don't allow this type of cladding for buildings higher than 40 feet. That is because they've adopted the International Building Code, which requires cladding for tall buildings

to pass a rigorous test developed by the National Fire

Protection Association called "NFPA 285."

The purpose of the test is to ensure that installed cladding will be noncombustible.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lawsuits: Officer used excessive force in several cases

HARTFORD, Conn. — Eight brutality lawsuits settled over the past 10 Worden worked for the Enfield Police Department from 2004 to 2014. He was fired after an internal affairs investigation of a beating, but town officials later changed the termination to a resignation to settle his labor grievance over the firing.months paint a disturbing picture of a former Connecticut police officer accused of beating people while they were handcuffed and ordering his police dog to attack others

who were not resisting arrest.

Among other allegations, former Enfield officer Matthew Worden is accused of punching people in the face when they were already subdued,

smashing a man's face to the pavement causing him to lose two front teeth,

using a stun gun multiple times on a man with a heart condition and striking a man in the groin with

a baton, causing him to lose consciousness. In a ninth case that is pending, Worden and other Enfield officers are accused of smashing Tyler Damato's head into asphalt and shooting him with a stun gun on Christmas Day 2012, aggravating a traumatic head injury he suffered two months before when he was hit by a car. Minutes before the encounter, the man's mother warned police about her son's head injury. Damato died in February 2013 after a car accident. He was 20. The lawsuit by his mother blames Worden and the other officers for his death because of the injuries they caused.

N.C. case law: Can't be charged with rape if person revokes consent during sex

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — A North Carolina woman feels rejected by a N.C. case law: Can't be charged with rape if person revokes consent during sex
decades-old North Carolina law that rules a person can't be charged with rape even if the other person revokes consent

during sex.

A bill stalled in the Senate's Rules Committee would

change that.

In a Fayetteville Observer article published this week, 19-year-old Aaliyah Palmer says

she was the victim of a sex crime back in January.

A man pulled her into the bathroom for sex, for which she was willing. When the sex turned violent and she told the man to stop, he didn't listen. 

In 1979, the NC Supreme Court ruled a person can't be charged with rape if the partner initially consented to sex,

but revoke consent after sexual intercourse begins.

In State Vs. Way, the court determined 'if the actual penetration is accomplished with the woman's consent, the accused is not guilty of rape, although he may be guilty of another crime because of his subsequent actions.' 


 

 

 

 

Israel strikes Syrian military near Golan Heights

(CNN)Israel launched strikes on Syrian military positions Saturday, close to Syrian state-run news agency SANA reported several people were killed in the Israeli strikes. SANA said fighting in the area is between the Syrian regime and the al Nusra Front, a militant Syrian rebel group. No one is reported to have been wounded as a result of the projectile firethe two countries' disputed border in the Golan Heights, according to the Israel Defense Forces (IDF).

The action was a response to what the IDF said were more than 10 projectiles fired into Israel from inside Syria.

The IDF described the projectile fire as "errant," blaming it on internal fighting. Israeli aircraft targeted three positions from which the projectiles were fired, the IDF said. The strikes included hits on two tanks belonging to the Syrian regime.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The opioid epidemic in Ohio is so bad, a church is handing out Narcan

(CNN)A few months ago, Jeremy Bouer says, he found an overdose victim A few months ago, Jeremy Bouer says, he found an overdose victim in front of his church in Cincinnati. A week later, he encountered another at a nearby McDonald's. Then another in his neighborhood.in front of his church in Cincinnati.

A week later, he encountered another at a nearby

McDonald's.

Then another in his neighborhood.

That's when Bouer took action.

Bouer works at Holy Family Church, and during its annual family festival over the weekend,

the parish handed out Narcan kits to the congregation.

Working with the state attorney general's office, the church distributed 70 kits of the opioid overdose antidote.

"This 70 packs of Narcan, that is 70 lives," Bouer told CNN affiliate WLWT.

"I can't wait to hear stories and

testimonies of people being saved from the packs that are being served from our festival."

Overdose-related deaths have been on the rise all over the nation.

And Ohio's been particularly hard-hit. Dealers have been cutting heroin

with the synthetic fentanyl to give it a boost and stretch their supply or give

a bigger kick, according to the Drug Enforcement Administration. Fentanyl is

50 to 100 times more potent than morphine and 30 to 50

times more potent than heroin.

Just a quarter of a milligram can kill someone.

Narcan counteracts the effects of opioids and can reverse an overdose. It's been used by hospitals and emergency responders for years, and there are efforts to expand access across the

country. But some say it's not a permanent solution.

Carrier workers facing layoffs feel betrayed by Trump

A promise made before Christmas is fizzling before the Fourth of July. In December, then-President-elect Trump told hundreds of workers at the Carrier manufacturing plant that he had worked out a deal to save their jobs.    But it's not working out that way. A steady downpour today did little to wash away the fact that the jobs of 600 union employees are going south. "They're going to Monterrey, Mexico," said Robert James, president of the local union.

Heller ‘Will Not Support’ Draft Senate GOP Health Bill

In this form, I will not support it,” the Nevada Republican said at a press conference. put themselves in a quagmire.  It was the Republicans who demanded many changes to the HCA that eventually weakened the HCA to it's current status, and it was the Republican Governors, who held their nose as they opted for "Medicare" over Obamacare... beginning in 2011, and now it's those same Republican States..., that opted for "Medicare" over Obamacare, that is causing this huge issue with the Republican's ability to create their own

Supreme Court bails out Bush officials over 9/11 detentions

Human Ignorance at the Supreme Court Level

The case was brought by six Muslim non-citizens who were among hundreds jailed and subjected to harsh treatment, largely because they fit the racial and religious profile of the 9/11 attackers.

All eventually were released and deported, based on their immigration status. It was a victory for top officials in the Bush administration, including former attorney general John Ashcroft and FBI director Robert Mueller, who could have been on the hook for personal liability if the justices ruled against them.The Last person to ask "whether or not", one would call the

United States Supreme Court,

the epitome of legal scholarly thought and consciousness...

is

ME.

Political Partisanship is abundantly clear, and has been since the establishment of the Supreme Court, and the facts speak out in the history of the racist rulings etched in stone at the federal level and at the state levels.

This ruling, that removes blame from members of the Bush Administration.... is the exact opposite of the type of justice freedom used.... to this day, to seek out former military personnel who served in the German Military, and German Establishment during WWII.

This Supreme Court has successfully, ensured that the chances of assigning applicable criminal labels on everyone who served for the Bush Administration, based on their individual efforts to lie and lead this nation and the world.... into a

"Illegal, and Criminal War that lead to War Crimes".

A travesty, and a thing that ought not go away simply.

U.S. risks further battles as it steps deeper into Syrian quagmire

A Quagmire is the correct word

President Obama's Intelligence, often made him appear "weak", and The United States is becoming more perilously drawn into Syria’s fragmented war as it fights on increasingly congested battlefields surrounding Islamic State territory.all of us will come to understand this point, if, and when, the U.S. strikes down one of Russia's fighter jets.

True Strength in any human being, is the ability to appear "weak", when you have 10 times the power over those whom you look weak against.

Trump, one whom isn't known for his ability to think faster than anyone else in the room,

is falling into the "old trick" of "oopps",
"what had happen was"....

1 Flawed mistake can find this nation, Syria, Turkey, Russia, Iran and perhaps Israel, entwined into a war that could decimate Syria, parts of Turkey, parts of Israel, Parts of Iran, and perhaps,

even more land, all without any nation with the ability to describe

Former North Korea detainee Otto Warmbier dies

A Tragic Death, for no reason at all...

One of the most dreadful deaths that I can remember, is that of Otto Former North Korea detainee Otto Warmbier dies Warmbeir, in what appears to have been an intent to explore another nation, that happens to be North Korea, and the results was his arrest, his being tortured, and his subsequent death, after months of existing in a vegetated state.

The reclusive nation of North Korea, has yet to provide any details that lead to his vegetated condition..., other than that of Otto getting a germ and taking sleeping pills.

Surely, if this exact circumstances were to have happen to one of  North Korea's citizens after a visit to the U.S.,

Gunman dead after attacking congressmen at Virginia baseball field

Incitement.., When Words Matter

House of Representatives Majority Whip Steve Scalise was one of five injured in the early morning ambush at a park in Alexandria, Virginia.
The attacker, identified as Illinois native James T Hodgkinson, was killed after a firefight with police. The injured included two officers with non-life threatening wounds.For going on 2 years, we have spoke out, demanded actions against Trump's incitement words, all with no results. We have seen people punched in the face by Trump enthusiast at Trump rallies.

We have seen Trump speak about feeling like "Punching" protesters in his events during the run up to the elections.

We have seen news pundit softly speak to the viciousness of these anti "everything" and blatant "demoralization" rants by Trump, yet, they refused to expound on the possible ramifications of such viciousness, when some with possible mental conditions, may possibly interpret Trump style verbal guidance as actionable.

Currently, there is 1 law suit by 1 person who took action at one of those Trump events, that led the individual to jail for assault, who is demanding that Trump pay his lawyer bill because Trump, stated that he would do so if one of his followers needed a lawyer.

Today, we see the results of an appalling action that took the life of one, and threatened the life of many, all as a result of a man who felt like Trump forced him to take action.

US intelligence chiefs decline to discuss Trump contacts

APPAULING & UNACCEPTABLE

I watched the Congressional interview of the

Trump campaign.
"I have never felt pressure to intervene, interfere in any way for shaping intelligence in any way," Coats said at one point. 
But he later demurred when asked whether he was prepared to say that he had never been asked to influence an ongoing investigation, saying, 
"What I'm not willing to do is to share confidential information that I think ought to be protected in an open hearing." 
The questions from the Senate intelligence committee, at a hearing on surveillance law, were in response to news media reports that both Coats and Rogers had been asked by Trump to publicly state that there was no evidence of collusion between Moscow and the Trump campaign. Comey appears before the same committee on Thursday. Intelligence Chief

 and the

FBI Director,

and I found the response by the two leaders of two of

the largest

governmental organizations in America, nothing less than

APPAULING & UN

ACCEPTABLE.

These two individuals absolutely refused to speak the facts that have already been reported that..., these two were asked by Trump, to verbally, acknowledge the request by Donald Trump.

The refusal to acknowledge, what we already know,

The refusal to verbally acknowledge the flaws of Trump on a world stage, showed weakness in those who serve as "Leaders", and it is the weakness in leaders that cause those who server below them,

TO LEAK   Information that strong leaders allow.

Weakness in leadership opens the doors to a long chain of abuses down the line for all employees, and I have been in touch with many who have suffered from flawed and weak leaders

"You always pushed me to never give anything less than my absolute best night in, night out. That's what you expected. That's what you deserved. And, I hope you know that's what I dedicated my life to every time I walked into the facility or stepped on the floor of the United Center." city that drafted him.

"Chicago, What can I say?!" Butler began. "I truly struggle with the words because you've been so much more than just my home for the last 6 years, you've been my life! You've embraced me like a son and pushed me to get better every day, every season.

"I can honestly say that I have always been incredibly motivated to succeed; it's just the way I'm built. But I know I owe so much to the person I am now, and to the player that I've become, to you.

Lonzo, The Lakers And An L.A. Dream Come True

LOS ANGELES — This is an L.A. basketball story. In March 2004, UCLA lost in the opening round of the Pac-10 tournament to Washington, and after the game head coach Ben Howland took his staff to a revolving restaurant on the top floor of the Holiday Inn. The Bruins had gone 11-17 in Howland’s first season and his assistants were obviously anxious.

Howland was not known for dramatic gestures, but at one point during the dinner, he stood up and faced the window looking out over Interstate 405. It was 11 p.m. and traffic was at a standstill. “We’re going to be just fine,” Howland said, “and do you know why? Because there are people out there. A lot of people.” Among those natives who care about hoops, many grow up wanting to play for UCLA. All grow up wanting to play for the Lakers.

Trump University, weeks before taking the oath of office :

Losing & Loser
is becoming all to familiar with all things associated with Trump as the
American President,
beginning with his initial attempt at initiating a broad ranging order to halt all visitors from 6 Muslim Nations, followed by a
devastating and crushing defeat by members of his own political party,
who have been chanting and demanding the removal of Obamacare
for 7 long years, yet,
"Flunked" in his initial attempt to pass the bill that would remove and replace OBAMACARE.

Israel strikes Syrian military near Golan Heights

Israel's Snowball Gets Bigger, and now rolls faster

5 Years into the Syrian Civil War, Israel did nothing and stayed Syrian state-run news agency SANA reported several people were killed in the Israeli strikes. SANA said fighting in the area is between the Syrian regime and the al Nusra Front, a militant Syrian rebel group. No one is reported to have been wounded as a result of the projectile fireoutside the fray, however, 2 Israeli Strikes in  3 Months, seems to mean the beginning of the snowball effects of being dragged into..., what is easily described, a Muslim Internal War.

Perhaps it's due to the change in the command of the U.S. Military, which now, is more willing to use weapons to get a point across, as compared to the "un willingness of the Obama Admin".

For the first time, an attack that took place inside of Israel

was actually, acknowledged by IS, although, the Palestinians claimed the attack, it was the first instance in which IS attempted to claim an attack in Israel...... "What's Next".

Trump ends his self-made crisis where it started: Twitter

A Lie meant to "Intimidate" back fires on the Trump

Trump ends his self-made crisis where it started: TwitterTrump's individual flaws in his character, stand out like a black cat in the middle of the snow.

The Lie that has been heard around the world, were words written in a Trump Tweet, attempting to scare former AG Comey, in a manner which "Rich" business owners use to intimidate customers who complain about a business fraud or improper behavior.

This Act of attempted "Intimidation" by Trump..., is nothing less that an action of a "Gang Boss" attempting to keep the mouth close of a possible witness to a crime by a gang member of a mob boss.

This act, in itself, ought to be considered a

"CRIMINAL ACTION".

What's really behind Trump's 'poor person' comment

Spoken Out Loud... Dems & Reps both feel the same

Other candidates would try to impress you with their insights. Trump just says, "I'm, like, a smart person." Others portray themselves as resolute and strong. Trump says "I'm the most militaristic person" and tells a debate audience that he has a big penis. Others make detailed pledges to convince you that things will be great if they get elected. Trump says, "I will give you everything."
Why would a "Rich" person ever want to serve in any Public Office?

Answer:  The Power of the Public Office is always 10 times more powerful than the "Rich" person's own money is.

Public Offices, often, wields $Millions in

cash, donated by millions of "Poor Tax 

Payers",

and it is this huge bundle of free money... that the powerful want to guide to the rich people friends, because once in office, the rich become extremely  popular with other rich friends.

The saying,

"it's who you know and not what you know", which is a very true saying, and it will 99.9% of the time, get a person pass the barriers that impede people who really  know things... who ought to land the contract.

Trump's actions is no more than what is currently taking place in every small city, or county, across this nation......

Those sitting in the seats of power prefer "Rich" to serve with them because of the "back-door deals" that are more possible, and not because a rich person is smarter, more experienced or better.

For, it has been studied that sites that "Rich" are apt to

"Lie, Cheat, Miss Lead and Expect Favors"

i.e. TRUMP.

Here is what I like about what you are doing, and how you are doing it.    Most of our people have no idea of what is going on within the political arena, some who vote, vote for the person someone else told them to vote for, others vote because they are affiliated with a particular party.     Your work gives various perspectives and different views.     You provide your opinion, but never try to tell others which way to go, or what they need to decide.     I am sure that you have sent this info to Mr. Decatur, Tucker, Jones, and our most common contacts, so I will send the info to some new contacts within my email list.        Continue with your good and Godly Works, because just as Mr. James Tucker with the African-American Voice; ASKFMB is another communication source for our people as a whole.
