Indonesian gold miners killed in West Papua

5 September 2019

Five gold miners in West Papua's central highlands were killed by local residents on Monday.

National police spokesperson Dedi Prasetyo said 74 miners were evacuated from Yahukimo regency after being attacked.
Three miners were also injured by the residents, who were armed with machetes, bows and arrows.

Mr Prasetyo told Reuters it was unclear whether the incident was linked to growing unrest across Papua.

A spokesperson for the West Papua Liberation Army, a rebel group operating in the highlands, said the gold miners were Indonesian immigrants, killed because they "came to Papuans lands and stole the gold from indigenous Papuans lands".

The Liberation Army did not claim responsibility for the attack but warned against further gold mining in the region.

Over half a million West Papuan Christians have been killed in a genocide by Indonesia since 1963 while Indonesia has sent Indonesian Sunni Muslim settlers as colonists to take over West Papua. West Papuan insurgents have fought against the Indonesian army occupation since that time.

The FBI exercised Oregon's new "red flag" law to confiscate firearms from a former Marine who allegedly said he would "slaughter" antifa protesters at a demonstration in Portland earlier this month, according to the Oregonian.

In July, Shane Kohfield threatened to kill antifa members who he feared would take up arms against right-wing activists. He made the threats on a loudspeaker while donning a "Make America Great Again" baseball cap with a knife and a copy of his concealed carry permit strapped to both shoulders.

"If antifa gets to the point where they start killing us, I’m going to kill them next," Kohfield said outside of Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler's home. "I’d slaughter them, and I have a detailed plan on how I would wipe out antifa."

It only took him three years, but Trump's own African-American has realized that the party of /pol/ is not for him.

>Gregory Cheadle went to a Trump rally out of curiosity and left it as an international headline.

>The infamous moment, like many at Donald Trump’s rallies that summer in 2016, seemed to materialize out of nowhere. Trump was telling a story about an African American supporter when suddenly he spotted Cheadle in the front row at the Redding, Calif., event, and paused to single out the black man.

>“Oh, look at my African American over here!” Trump exclaimed, pointing at Cheadle. “Look at him! Are you the greatest?”

>Cheadle laughed at Trump’s outburst then.

>Now, citing the president’s “white superiority complex,” Cheadle isn’t in the same party anymore.

How Neocon Money is Funding the Hong Kong Protests

>A closer look actually gives us a clear answer — that the West has more to do with this movement than it would like us to know. It’s the ugly face of Washington’s long-standing foreign policy directed at destabilizing one of its long-standing economic foes: China.

>Gone are the days where the CIA would directly overthrow foreign governments it didn’t like, such as Iran in 1953 or Brazil in 1964.

>Today regime change is achieved through front organizations like the National Endowment for Democracy, or NED, that influences thought and culture through covert means.

>Washington uses the NED as a “soft power” tool to influence and interfere in the politics and society of foreign countries in order to bring about governments that are conducive to the interests of big business. The NED does this under the guise of being a charitable organization promoting democracy and human rights.

>The idea is to create a buffer, 3rd-party organization to distance the U.S. government from funding political parties and groups and organizing regime-change operations.

>The NED was founded in 1983, following a series of scandals that exposed the CIA’s blood-soaked covert actions against foreign governments that resisted U.S. economic and political bullying.

>In 1986, NED President Carl Gershman told the New York Times, “It would be terrible for democratic groups around the world to be seen as subsidized by the CIA. We saw that in the Sixties, and that’s why it has been discontinued.”

>One of the NED’s founders, Allen Weinstein, was more blunt. He told the Washington Post, “A lot of what we do today was done covertly 25 years ago by the CIA.”

>In recent years, the NED has trained, supported and funded demonstrations and regime-change ops in Venezuela, Ukraine and Nicaragua, designed to look like grassroots uprisings.

Saudi princess sentenced for plumber kidnapping in Paris

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-49678033
>A Saudi princess has received a 10-month suspended sentence over the beating and kidnapping of a plumber in her luxury Paris apartment.
Hassa bint Salman is the 43-year-old sister of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, and daughter of King Salman.
She is accused of telling her bodyguard to beat up a plumber who allegedly took photos inside her home.
Ashraf Eid said the guard bound him and forced him to kiss the princess's feet.
On Thursday, a French court found the princess guilty of complicity to violence with a weapon and complicity to kidnap.
The princess - who was the subject of an international arrest warrant and was tried in absentia - was also ordered to pay a 10,000 euro (£8,900) fine. She has previously denied the charges against her.
Her bodyguard, Rani Saidi, received an eight-month suspended sentence and a 5,000 euro (£4,460) fine.
After the trial Princess Hassa's French lawyer, Emmanuel Moyne, said the plumber's allegations were "fanciful", and said they would launch an appeal.
What happened?
In September 2016, Mr Eid was called to the fifth floor of the luxury apartment block on Avenue Foch in the French capital to fix a damaged wash basin.
The Egyptian workman said he took photos of the bathroom which he needed for his work.
But the princess was allegedly enraged to see her reflection captured in the mirror. The indictment said she called Mr Saidi who then beat and bound Mr Eid.
The plumber said he was forced to kiss her feet and was not allowed to leave for several hours.
At one point the princess allegedly yelled: "Kill him, the dog, he doesn't deserve to live."
Mr Saidi told the court in July he heard the princess cry for help and rushed in to see her and Mr Eid gripping the phone.
"I seized (him) and overpowered him, I didn't know what he was after," he said, and suggested the plumber wanted to sell the images. Taking photos of the princess is illegal under Saudi law.

CDC suggests vapers stop vaping as lung disease numbers rise

No.456768 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
CDC officials advised people to stop using e-cigarettes until scientists gain better understanding of the epidemic of serious vaping-related lung disease that has sickened as many as 450 people and left at least five dead across 33 states.

The latest deaths were reported Friday by health departments in Indiana, California and Minnesota, following deaths in Illinois and Oregon. State officials say a number of cases involve marijuana products, but caution against drawing any conclusions and say there may be multiple causes.

CDC said it had confirmed 215 vaping-related lung disease cases and was investigating another 235 possibly related to vaping.

Minnesota's first vaping-related death involved a 65-year-old man with a history of lung issues, the state's health department said. Indiana and Los Angeles County also reportedly had deaths. The first fatality was reported last week in Illinois. Earlier this week in Oregon, officials said a man who bought marijuana vapor from a dispensary had died.

A major case study published Friday found that 84 percent of 41 Illinois and Wisconsin patients reported using THC — the psychoactive ingredient of marijuana. But more than half of them also used nicotine.

At least six groups of potentially toxic compounds are found in e-cigarette liquids, including nicotine, carbonyls, volatile organic substances like benzenes, trace metals, poisonous flavoring compounds and microorganisms, Harvard public health expert David Christiani said in separate NEJM editorial.

No conclusions can be drawn just yet, Christiani wrote, but "physicians should discourage their patients from vaping."

Supreme Court allows full enforcement of asylum crackdown

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court granted a request by President Donald Trump’s administration to fully enforce a new rule that would curtail asylum applications by immigrants at the U.S.-Mexico border, a key element of his hard-line immigration policies.

The court said the rule, which requires most immigrants who want asylum to first seek safe haven in a third country through which they had traveled on their way to the United States, could go into effect as litigation challenging its legality continues.

Liberal Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg dissented.
