Milo Yiannopoulos disinvited from CPAC amid tape controversy

>Milo Yiannopoulos lost his keynote speaking slot at the Conservative Political Action Conference after tapes surfaced of the right wing provocateur and senior Breitbart editor advocating for sexual relationships between “younger boys and older men.”

>“Due to the revelation of an offensive video in the past 24 hours condoning pedophilia, the American Conservative Union has decided to rescind the invitation,” said Matt Schlapp, chairman of the group which sponsors CPAC, in a statement Monday afternoon. The group called Yiannopoulos to “further address these disturbing comments,” but defended its original decision to invite him as a nod to “the free speech issue on college campuses.”

>The statement went on to declare that CPAC does not endorse “everything a speaker says or does.”

>President Donald Trump, along with Vice President Mike Pence, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, will be headlining this year’s event, along with top White House aides Steve Bannon and Reince Priebus. But the Milo controversy quickly threatened to taint the event and raised questions about what it would mean if other speakers still attended.

>Yiannopoulos, a senior editor at the conservative Breitbart News, is no stranger to controversy, but the CPAC's recent embrace of the crusading anti-political correctness provocateur has been discomfiting to some conservatives. Yiannopoulos was banned from Twitter after stirring up online harassment of Ghostbuster star Leslie Jones. And a planned Yiannopoulos event at the University of California, Berkeley was recently canceled when protests against him turned violent. The incident prompted Trump to threaten Berkeley with a loss of federal funds.

Article goes into comparing and contrasting arguably the most important democrat and arguably one of the scummiest presidents with President Trump and how he's modeled.

Felt like this was pretty interesting.

Fearing deportation, undocumented mother of four takes refuge in Denver church

https://gma.yahoo.com/fearing-deportation-undocumented-mother-four-takes-refuge-denver-074628902--abc-news-topstories.html

>An undocumented mother of four who has lived in Denver, Colorado, for 20 years took refuge in a church Wednesday after U.S. immigration officials rejected her request to remain in the country.

>In an interview with ABC News on Wednesday, Jeanette Vizguerra, 45, said she skipped her scheduled check-in with Immigration and Customs Enforcement earlier out of fear that she would be deported.

>She has three U.S.-born children -- Luna, 12, Roberto, 10, and Zury, 6 -- and a 26-year-old Mexican-born daughter, Tania Baez, who reportedly is not a citizen by birth, but has a work permit under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

>Vizguerra, a native of Mexico and an immigrant rights activist, said she plans to live in the basement bedroom of the First Unitarian Society in Denver until she has legal documents that allow her to walk freely.

>Taking refuge in a church is a common tactic to avoid deportation.

>Under U.S. government policy, immigration authorities are supposed to avoid entering places of worship and other “sensitive locations,” unless they have prior approval from a supervisor or face “exigent circumstances” that demand immediate action.

>Vizguerra’s attorney, Hans Meyer, said the government had granted his client six stays of removal since she was ordered to leave the country in November 2011.

>Meyer said Vizguerra also has a pending U-Visa application she filed 13 months ago. U-Visas are typically set aside for victims of certain crimes and people who are helpful to law enforcement.

>Vizguerra was allegedly the victim of a past assault.

>ICE spokesman Shawn Neudauer said Vizguerra was an “enforcement priority” based on two misdemeanor convictions, including what her lawyer says is the common practice of using a fake social security number to get a job.

Sudanese journalist faces death sentence over condom article

No.113413 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
A female Sudanese journalist has found herself in trouble over her article on condom use.

Ms Shamail Alnour is being accused of apostasy for her article on the use of condom as a protection against the HIV/Aids scourge.

Her article had explained how condoms could help stem the rising cases of HIV/AIDS infections in the predominantly Muslim state.

The article prompted strong reactions from several of her compatriots who felt that it went against the Islamic values.

Radical Islamic leader Mohamed Ali Algizoli has led a nation-wide campaign calling on the authorities to prosecute Ms Alnour.

The crime is punishable by a death sentence in Sudan.

Journalist groups and the opposition have however thrown their weight behind Ms Alnour by organising solidarity campaigns.

Finally, perfection. 100%. This would far surpass every other achievement in history and would put all other fields to shame.

I would sincerely welcome it and be grateful, but I doubt it. In all likelihood, some people will die from complications or infection of the shot, but the ceo won't willingly admit or report these. However, they will fabricate the number of people they saved, as ceos fabricate view counts because they lie when their lips move.

> The U.S. Government keeps a database of reports called The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).

> 108 deaths over this period,

What people need is healthy, nutritious food, clean water and sanitation.

“All of us must accept our share of the blame for this turn of events. We grew complacent. We made mistakes. At times we tried to do too much, and at others we failed to do enough. We lost touch with many of our people. We have been too slow to recognize and respond to their hardships. We need to face up to these realities, but this does not mean losing hope and retreating. That we must not do.

“Make no mistake, my friends: These are dangerous times, but you should not count America out, and we should not count each other out. We must be prudent, but we cannot wring our hands and wallow in self-doubt. We must appreciate the limits of our power, but we cannot allow ourselves to question the rightness and goodness of the West. We must understand and learn from our mistakes, but we cannot be paralyzed by fear. We cannot give up on ourselves and on each other. That is the definition of decadence. And that is how world orders really do decline and fall.

“This is exactly what our adversaries want. This is their goal. They have no meaningful allies, so they seek to sow dissent among us and divide us from each other. They know that their power and influence are inferior to ours, so they seek to subvert us, and erode our resolve to resist, and terrorize us into passivity. They know they have little to offer the world beyond selfishness and fear, so they seek to undermine our confidence in ourselves and our belief in our own values.
