Turkish bill forgives child rape if it results in marriage

No.537537 ViewReplyOriginalReport

I don’t understand how this law is supposed to work. What if the victim doesn’t want to marry their rapist, then the amnesty doesn’t apply? Is it up to the parents? What the fuck, Turkey?

Man traded drugs for weapons which he intended to give to Mexican gangs, Feds say

No.537923 ViewReplyOriginalReport
A U.S. citizen living in Tijuana has been indicted on charges of trading drugs for weapons, including machine guns and grenade launchers, which he intended to provide to Mexican gangs, federal authorities said this week.

A federal grand jury in Los Angeles charged Pedro Roberto Hernandez-Gomez with possession of machine guns, attempting to transport explosives, being a felon in possession of firearms, distribution of heroin and distribution of fentanyl.

Hernandez-Gomez, 31, agreed to provide the narcotics in exchange for weapons, including grenades and handguns, according to the federal affidavit.

“It is clear these machine guns and grenade launchers were destined for criminal groups in Mexico,” Carlos A. Canino, a special agent in charge of the L.A. field division of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, said in a statement.


Revealed: the true identity of the leader of an American neo-Nazi terror group

No.537841 ViewReplyOriginalReport
The Base – which is an approximate English translation of “al-Qaida” – began recruiting in late 2018. The white supremacy group, which has regional and international cells, extols the virtues of an all-out race war while specifically targeting African Americans and Jewish people.

Under the motto “there is no political solution”, the Base embraces an “accelerationist” ideology, which holds that acts of violence and terror are required in order to push liberal democracy towards collapse, preparing the way for white supremacists to seize power and institute an ethnostate.

Rinaldo Nazzaro has maintained a decidedly low profile: he has no visible presence on any major social media platforms, no published writings under his own name, and no profile in local or national media.

The Guardian was only able to find one earlier photograph attached to his real name. It appeared above a vox pop in the Villanovan, the student paper of Catholic, Pennsylvania-based Villanova University, in 1994.

Nazzaro is the principal of an LLC called Omega Solutions International (OSI), a company offering a range of intelligence and security contracting.

The firm also has a Cage Code, which is an administrative requirement for military and government contractors.

>Biden campaign warns media about spreading 'malicious and conclusively debunked' claims during impeachment trial

TO:Reporters and Editors
FROM:Kate Bedingfield, Deputy Campaign Manager and Communications Director
RE:The Imperative for Honest Coverage of Trump’s Ukraine Conspiracy Theory
DATE:January 20, 2020

Donald Trump is the only American president to have weaponized foreign and national security
policy in an attempt to coerce a foreign country into lying about a rival presidential candidate.
This effort by President Trump is the reason he is now the third U.S. president to be impeached.
His objective was to pressure the Ukrainian government into spreading a malicious and
conclusively debunked conspiracy theory: that Vice President Biden engaged in wrongdoing
when he executed official United States policy to remove a corrupt prosecutor from office. This
theory, which The New Yorker has explained originated from disgraced “journalist” John
Solomon, with the help of Breitbart editor Peter Schweizer, alleges that Biden was in fact trying
to stop the investigation of Burisma, a Ukrainian natural gas company on whose board his son
According to the White House’s memorandum of President Trump’s call with President
Zelensky, Trump urged his counterpart: “There's a lot talk about Biden's son, that Biden stopped
the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the
Attorney General would be great. Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution
so if you can look into it ... It sounds horrible to me.”

>Hillary Clinton Says ‘Nobody Likes’ Bernie Sanders and Declines to Commit to Backing Him

>Mrs. Clinton sharply criticized her former primary rival in a forthcoming documentary series, and stood by her comments in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

>Hillary Clinton, who battled with Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont for months in a 2016 Democratic primary that sometimes turned contentious, ripped into her former campaign rival in a new documentary series and declined to say if she would endorse and campaign for him if he were to win the presidential nomination this time around.

>“He was in Congress for years. He had one senator support him,” she said in a forthcoming four-part series, set to have its premiere at Sundance and air on Hulu beginning March 6. “Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, he got nothing done. He was a career politician. It’s all just baloney and I feel so bad that people got sucked into it.”

>Asked in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, published on Tuesday, if that assessment still held, she said, “Yes, it does.”

>And in response to a question about whether she would endorse and campaign for Mr. Sanders if he were to get the nomination, she said: “I’m not going to go there yet. We’re still in a very vigorous primary season.”

Says Google told him ‘he could have anything he wanted’
ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — A woman was stopped at a busy Orange County intersection when she said a man started pulling on her car door trying to climb inside.

Police said they arrested William Bastin, a registered sex offender, after the incident. Investigators said Bastin told them that Google told him “it was his day and he could have anything he wanted without paying."

“He came to my door and just started flailing his arms like - ‘I’m going to get into your car no matter what.’ And I’m like, ‘Oh, no you’re not,’" the woman, who asked not to be identified, said.

Court records show Bastin was released on bond after the intersection incident only to be arrested again Tuesday. Police said he was acting erratically and screaming at employees at a Walmart.

Records show Bastin has a history of at least 17 arrests for sex offenses, drug violations and thefts.

Sherrod Brown on Impeachment: ‘Fine’ to Hear from Hunter Biden

Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) said on Sunday’s broadcast of CNN’s “State of the Union” that it would be “fine” to hear from Hunter Biden, son of Democratic presidential hopeful former Vice President Joe Biden, during the Senate impeachment trial.

Brianna Keilar asked, “They can easily call Hunter Biden. Are you prepared for that?”

Brown said, “Fine. We take the position that we want to hear from witnesses. I don’t know what Hunter Biden has to do with the phone call that was made.”

Keilar pressed, “But you’re fine hearing from him?”

Brown said, “I’m fine with hearing— I mean, I understand —I’m not a lawyer. I understand both sides get to call witnesses.”

Joe Biden’s Brother Frank got $54,000,000 in Taxpayer Loans from the Obama Adrninistration

>Joe Biden’s Brother Frank Linked to Projects Receiving $54,000,000 in Taxpayer Loans from the Obama Administration—Despite No Experience
Frank Biden, the youngest brother of former Vice President Joe Biden, saw his business interests benefit from millions of dollars in taxpayer loans to Caribbean nations during the Obama years.

The extensive overlap in Frank Biden’s dealings and Obama-Biden foreign policy in Central America is exposed in Peter Schweizer’s new book—Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America’s Progressive Elite.

Frank Biden first set his sights on the region in 2009, as the Obama administration began to repair the U.S. relationship with Costa Rica. Tensions between the two countries flared under President George W. Bush, most notably on how to deal with drug trafficking.

When President Barack Obama entered the White House, he set out to mend fences in the region in hopes of inaugurating a new era of global cooperation. Leading the charge on that front was Joe Biden, who had long standing ties to the region from his tenure leading the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

Shortly after the new administration took office, Frank Biden began scouting real estate opportunities in Costa Rica. A lawyer by training, Frank was undeterred by his lack of background in international development and decades old legal troubles at home.

As Schweizer notes, despite the professional and personal handicaps, business opportunities were plentiful for Frank, especially after his brother paid a visit to the country.
