Is The CDC Hiding Enterovirus-D68 Link to Illegal Alien Kids?

entro-ART-chy665

Public Health: A disease that was once rare in the U.S. is killing Americans, and its rise coincides with the tidal wave of unaccompanied minor children arriving from Latin America under our de facto open-border policy.

Eli Waller, a 4-year-old New Jersey boy, died Sept. 25. He was reportedly fine and healthy when he went to bed but died overnight, with the cause confirmed by the Centers for Disease Control to be enterovirus D-68 (EV-D68), one more casualty in an epidemic that has swept the country seemingly out of nowhere.

The CDC website reports that from mid-August to Oct. 10, the CDC itself or state authorities confirmed that 691 people in 46 states and the District of Columbia had come down with some sort of respiratory illness caused by EV-D68. Five children, including Eli, died from their infections.

More than a few observers have noticed that the sudden increase in EV-D68 cases coincides with the rapid rise of unaccompanied minors crossing our porous border. These children, often without proper health screenings, have been distributed throughout the U.S.

The CDC denies any connection, noting that cases of EV-D68 have occurred in the U.S. for decades, having first been detected in California in 1962.

“There is no evidence that unaccompanied children brought EV-D68 into the United States, we are not aware of any of these children testing positive for the virus,” the CDC told World Net Daily in an email response to an inquiry into the possible connection.

It is true that EV-D68 has been in the U.S. at least since 1962. But according to a study done by doctors from the Division of Viral Diseases at the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases published on the CDC’s own website, EV-D68 “is one of the most rarely reported serotypes, with only 26 reports throughout the 36-year study period (1970 through 2006).”

There’s often a disconnect between coincidence and correlation. But we suspect that the jump in cases from 26 in 36 years to nearly 700 in one year coming at the same time as the open-border influx of improperly screened illegal aliens is more than just a coincidence. Continue Reading

Commentary: If the American public finds the CDC covered up these facts and continued to allow infected Illegal alien kids to come into the country, well there will be uproar in this country that would literally shake the foundations in Washington. If true that would make some people guilty of murder now wouldn’t it. The sad part of all this is these bureaucrats and politicians are sacrificing our vulnerable children for Illegal alien kids that have a built in immunity to this disease, all of this illness and tragedy just to secure their future democrat voter base. “Bet on It”

Educational Video on Savage Muslim Rape Gangs not used Amid Fears of Appearing Racist

Last week I reported that the files from these Muslim sex gang trials “went missing.” Now this. The British Authorities sacrifice their own children, their little girls, on the alter of Islamic supremacism. Each and every complicit British law enforcement and government officials ought to be tried and imprisoned.

If the British Authorities went after these Muslim beasts the way they went after and destroyed the EDL, they wouldn’t have had this problem. The British government has adopted sharia policies in dealing with Muslims vs non-Muslims.

As Britain rushes headlong toward civil war and ruin, at least its elites can congratulate themselves on never being “racist.”

“Educational video warning of Asian grooming gangs was made for schools seven years ago but was hardly used amid fears of appearing racist,” by Sheron Boyle, Daily Mail, September 21, 2014

An educational video warning schoolgirls about Asian grooming gangs was commissioned for schools in 2007 but was never promoted in the UK amid fears of appearing racist.

The 20-minute film, My Dangerous Lover boy, features an Asian man in his 20s grooming a younger white girl – lavishing her with gifts and getting her drunk before forcing her to have sex for money.

It was commissioned by child protection chiefs based in Yorkshire following reports of vulnerable girls being passed around groups of men for sex, according to a TV producer who worked on the project.

Despite winning plaudits at international media festivals, the video was hardly used as it was thought not to be politically correct, the Sunday Mirror reports.

Yorkshire has since been shaken by the revelation that 1,400 girls were abused by Asian gangs in the town of Rotherham between 1997 and 2013.

The female TV producer, who preferred not to be named, said: ‘The project was set up to specifically raise school kids’ awareness of the dangers.

‘The police and social workers were very clear it was Asian men who were seducing white British girls.

‘I can’t help wondering how many girls the film might have saved from being sexually exploited if the UKHTC and police had put their needs before political correctness.’

She said that men would find young girls in shopping centers and win their affections before forcing them to have sex with their male friends.

The movie was produced by a company called Eyes Open Creative, who says the aim was to ‘open up people’s eyes to the harsh realities of sexual exploitation’. Continue Reading

Commentary: The community leaders that allowed this travesty to take place should suffer the same fate as the perpetrators of these horrific crimes against the little girls of Rotherham. Crimes have no racial or religious connotations’ just a price tag called jail for all that violate the laws of the nation.

Rotherham: Muslim Rape Gang Files, Mysteriously Missing from Council Archive

rotherdam-ART-2-aar5

It’s an all-out attack on the West, and those whom we have entrusted with our safety, our lives, our way of life have all but surrendered.

How are these Muslim sex gangs in the UK any different from the raping and trafficking of non-Muslim girls in Iraq and Syria by the Islamic State? The only difference is geography.

….a desire to keep “good relations” with the local Pakistani community and a worry about “reputational risk” for the council also caused officers to turn a blind eye.

Four years of crucial files on child sex abuse in Rotherham have gone missing from a council archive, it was revealed today.

Professor Alexandra Jay, who wrote the bombshell report revealing 1,400 young girls were abused in the town over 15 years, said minutes from key meetings have disappeared.

Rotherham Council was slammed in her report for ignoring the scandal and its leader and chief executive have both since resigned.

Appearing before the Commons local government committee, Prof Jay warned her inquiry had not seen all the key information.

“We were concerned about particular missing information, from around the time 1999 to 2003.

“This was a period when there were a group of dedicated professionals meeting and trying hard to address these issues,” she said.

Commentary: How covenant no documents no trial no one held responsible, this is a perfectly cowardly stance to take. Unfortunately in this case the only people who pay here are the young victims that were emotionally and sexually violated by these multicultural monsters. “Shame on you, you f_cked up people of Rotherham”

German Biker Gang, Median Empire Enters Kobane To Fight ISIS Alongside Kurds

ART-2-Bikers-in-Kobane.888

Members of a German motorcycle gang have arrived in the besieged Syrian city of Kobane to fight against Islamic State militants who have been attacking the city for the past four weeks.

Leaders of the Cologne-based Median Empire Motorcycle Club, which has strong Kurdish links, have posted images of their riders posing in the city – some of them carrying weapons.

The news comes just after three members of a notorious motorcycle gang from the Netherlands were told they had not committed any crime by travelling to Kobane to join the fight against ISIS.

Images of the Median Empire Motorcycle Club emerged on the group’s Facebook page, and showed the heavily tattooed riders with rifles slung over the shoulders.
In a shot of the Germans huddled together, the gang’s logo – a sinister looking white face on a black background – could clearly be seen on their leather vests.

Elsewhere of their Facebook page, the Median Empire Motorcycle Club praise the notorious Netherlands based No Surrender gang, three members of which have also travelled to fight in Kobane, according to its leader Klaas Otto. Continue Reading

Marines Fear Saddam’s Weapons of Mass Destruction Bunker is now in the Hands of ISIS

WMDS-ART-667bf

The U.S. Marines who guarded the sprawling complex in northwest Iraq where Saddam Hussein’s 1980s war machine churned out some of the most deadly chemical and biological weapons known to man had a name for one especially mysterious bunker: The Dragon’s Egg.

Although the Americans assigned to the Al Muthanna facility until 2008 were forbidden by superiors from peering inside the bunker, they knew the larger complex’s history. From 1983 to 1990, the brutal dictator’s scientists worked there, developing mustard, sarin, VX and Tabun gases for use on Iranian soldiers and Iraqi Kurds. And although it was under the control of U.S. and Iraqi military forces for most of the last decade, the entire facility – and whatever it held – is now firmly in the grasp of the Islamic State, the terrorist army that has claimed a vast swath of Iraq and Syria and allegedly used chemical weapons against Kurds this summer.

The X-shaped bunker, encased in cement and shrouded in mystery, was one of two that were handled differently from the many other bunkers that made up the facility, according to Lt. Joshua Hartley, who was stationed there in 2008. It was off-limits. Continue Reading

Commentary: Wait one minute, were we not told by democrats over the past ten years there were no Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq? Yes we were told exactly that. What is even more alarming about this issue is the Bush Administration and the U.S Military never told the American people they found the mass amounts of WMD’s in Iraq. Even after Democrats pounded Republicans on this issue every chance they could, they eventually rode this false premise all the way to the White House, this is what gave us OBAMA. This proves once again we are surrounded by politicians that are lairs and pussies.

Insanity: 101st Airborne Will Not Receive Full Protective Hazmat Suits for Ebola Mission in Africa

ART--101st-airborne--6v00

The 101st Airborne is a U.S. Army modular light infantry division trained for air assault operations. The division was renowned for its role on D-Day. Major General David H. Petraeus (“Eagle 6″) led the Screaming Eagles to war during the 2003 during Operation Iraqi Freedom.

The administration says they won’t need them.

Nashville Public Radio reported:

Troops from the 101st Airborne Division leading the military response to Ebola in West Africa will only need gloves and masks to protect themselves from the deadly virus, so said Gen. David Rodriguez at a Pentagon briefing Wednesday.

“They don’t need the whole suit – as such – because they’re not going to be in contact with any of the people,” the commander of U.S. troops in Africa said.

Soldiers from the 101st Airborne will primarily be building hospitals, ultimately leading what could be a contingent of 4,000 American service members. They’ll be housed either in tent cities at military airfields or in Liberian Ministry of Defense facilities, Rodriguez said.

Soldiers’ health will be monitored through surveys and taking their temperature on their way in and out of camps. If a service member does get sick, Rodriguez said they will be flown home immediately for treatment.

Commentary: The decisions by the Obama administration pertaining to the Ebola crisis seem to get crazier by the minute. This is a waste of highly trained military assets to say the least. America this is liberalism at its worst!!!!!!

Bat-Eating Family in Guinea Village Identified as Source of Present EBOLA Epidemic

ART-y-bat-meat-wwov67

Bush meat is believed to be the origin of the current Ebola outbreak. The first victim’s family hunted bats, which carry the virus. Could the practice of eating bush meat, which is popular across Africa, be responsible for the current crisis?

The origin has been traced to a two-year-old child from the village of Gueckedou in south-eastern Guinea, an area where bat meat is frequently hunted and eaten.

The infant, dubbed Child Zero, died on 6 December 2013. The child’s family stated they had hunted two species of bat which carry the Ebola virus.

Bush meat or wild animal meat covers any animal that is killed for consumption, principally chimpanzees, gorillas, fruit bats and monkeys. It can even include porcupines, rats and snakes.

In some remote areas it is a necessary source of food – in others it has become a delicacy.

In Africa’s Congo Basin, people eat an estimated five million tons of bush meat per year, according to the Center of International Forestry Research. Continue Reading

Pilots on a holiday jet were left stunned when a ‘flying man’ whizzed past their aircraft at 3,500 feet.

The mystery man flew within 100 meters of the plane and left the pilots baffled as to how he was moving through the air, as neither could see a canopy suspending him.

There was also no sign of him on the radar and further checks failed to reveal any par gliders, parachutists or balloonists in the area at the time.

Obama Allowing 100,000 Haitians to Immigrate to U.S. Without Visas

ART-hati-22he

The ranking Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee took the Obama administration to task Friday for its “irresponsible” plan to allow as many as 100,000 Haitians to immigrate to the U.S. without a visa.

Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa said the administration’s Haitian Family Reunification Parole Program — which will allow thousands of Haitians awaiting a U.S. visa to enter the country and legally apply for work permits — is “an irresponsible overreach of the executive branch’s authority.”

“Which countries are next on President Obama’s list?” Mr. Grassley said. “Will there by medical screenings before entry? Will work permits be granted automatically? How will this affect American workers?”

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, the branch of the Department of Homeland Security that handles immigration benefits cases, announced Friday the program to unite Haitians already living in the U.S. with family members abroad will ramp up in 2015. Continue Reading

U.S Airstrikes and Kurds Push ISIS Out of Kobane

ART-ve3-kobane-66tal

KOBANE—Islamist militants have been pushed out of Kobane and fighters of the Peoples Protection Units (YPG) are now in control of the town, a Kurdish official in Kobane told Rudaw.

“There is no ISIS in Kobane now,” said Omar Alush, co-chair of the TEV-DEM movement in Kobane.

Alush said that following the recent air strikes on positions of the Islamic State (ISIS) militants in Kobane, the YPG managed to drive the rest of the jihadis out of town and that they are now in control.

“YPG fighters are now searching the homes for bombs and explosives that the Islamist militants might have left behind,” said Alush.

IS militants laid siege to the Kurdish town of Kobane on the Turkish-Syrian border last month, pounding the town with heavy artillery and tanks?

With support from US air strikes, the YPG held the town and eventually managed to turn the tide against the ISIS.

“Kobane is quiet now and the flag of ISIS is gone,” Alush maintained. Continue Reading

Gang of Black Thugs Viciously Beating People Randomly at the University of Illinois

ART-33-55qee32

Over the last two weekends, a group or groups of black men have been roving have been roving the streets and beating people completely at random near the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign.

Police say the beatdowns are consistent with initiations by big-city street gangs — a phenomenon not typically seen on most Big 10 campuses.

The latest round of maulings occurred in the wee hours of Saturday morning between 3 a.m. and 4 a.m., WLS-TV reports.

The attackers — described as black men, perhaps 25 years old, wearing dark clothes — rambled around an area in Champaign, tackling various innocent and unsuspecting people to the ground and kicking them in the head.

Police say five students suffered injuries in four different instances. Three of the students received treatment for bruises, cuts and facial wounds, notes WLS. One student also had a cell phone stolen. Continue Reading

Commentary: This is just one more in a long list of black on white attacks happening around the country, the question that should be asked is who is emboldening these young black men to act out against whites?

Obama Planning to Bring Ebola-Infected Africans to US for Treatment

Washington, DC – Judicial Watch has learned that the Obama administration is actively formulating plans to admit Ebola-infected non-U.S. citizens into the United States for treatment. Specifically, the goal of the administration is to bring Ebola patients into the United States for treatment within the first days of diagnosis.

It is unclear who would bear the high costs of transporting and treating non-citizen Ebola patients. The plans include special waivers of laws and regulations that ban the admission of non-citizens with a communicable disease as dangerous as Ebola.

One source tells us that the Obama administration is keeping this plan secret from Congress. The source is concerned that the proposal is illegal; endangers the public health and welfare; and should require the approval of Congress.

Commentary: This action by Obama is laced with insanity, if this doesn’t wake the American people up nothing will. (Vic M)

ISIS Crucifies Teenager for Apostasy

bot-cruciffy-ART-54

Isis fighters have reportedly executed a 17-year-old boy and left his body on display on a cross in Syria.

Pictures being shared online show a banner attached to the teenager’s chest saying the boy has been crucified for taking photos of Isis military bases, as well as receiving “500 Turkish lira” for any footage taken.

The message describes the ruling for the alleged crime as “apostasy” and states the teenager has been “killed and crucified for a period of three days” as the punishment.

The alleged execution comes after it emerged Isis militants had beheaded their own fighters for spying and espionage.

Nebraska School District asks Teachers to stop using description ‘boys’ and girls’

ART-y-pen-jjf6333

In an attempt to get rid of ‘gendered space,’ a school district in Nebraska has asked instructors to stop using words like ‘boys and girls.’

The Journal Star found the Lincoln Public Schools system circulated a handout for the New Year, telling teachers to use specific terms like ‘purple penguins’ instead.

The instructional handout, entitled ’12 easy steps on the way to gender inclusiveness,’ listed step 2 as: ‘Don’t use phrases such as ”boys & girls,” ”you guys,” ”ladies and gentlemen,” and similarly gendered expressions to get kids’ attention.’

‘Instead say things like ”calling all readers,” or ”hey campers” or “could all of the athletes come here.” Create classroom names and then ask all of the ”purple penguins” to meet at the rug,’ it read.

Administrators at the district had focused on transgender students before the start of the school year in order to be able to spot issues before they arise.

In addition to training, administrators passed around a profile of a transgendered person in the local news and Time Magazine’s cover story on the issue.

One parent in the district worries that the training pushes an agenda, calling the change ‘social engineering.’ Continue Reading

Simple Schoolteacher Joins Fearsome Female ISIS Khansa’a Brigade

Urfa, Turkey (CNN) – The petite 25-year-old tentatively opens the door to the hotel room where we’ve agreed to meet. Her face is covered, but her body language betrays her anxiety.

She slowly lifts her niqab, revealing her young, heart-shaped face. Her large brown eyes, filled with guilt and turmoil, are delicately made up under perfectly sculpted brows.

She calls herself ‘Khadija.’ It’s not her real name, because she’s a marked woman. Once a member of a fearsome, female ISIS brigade, she’s a recent defector, disillusioned by the group’s brutality.

Her interview with CNN is the first time she has ever told anyone her story.

‘I ran away to something uglier’

Growing up in Syria, Khadija’s family ensured she got an education. She earned her college degree and began teaching elementary school. Khadija describes her family and upbringing as “not overly conservative.”

When the Syrian uprising began more than three and a half years ago, Khadija joined the masses who began peaceful protests against the government of President Bashar al-Assad.
“We’d go out and demonstrate. The security services would chase us. We’d write on walls, have different outfits to change into,” she said. “Those days were great.”

But it was when the Syrian uprising spiraled into chaos and violence that she said she began to lose her soul, her humanity.

“Everything around us was chaos,” she said, her words tumbling out. “Free Syrian Army, the regime, barrel bombs, strikes, the wounded, clinics, blood — you want to tear yourself away, to find something to run to.

“My problem was I ran away to something uglier.” Continue Reading

Black Panther Malik Shabazz Calls for Black Rebellion against Tyrannical America

BP-art-ii876

This week on Fox News Radio, host John Gibson had a heated exchange with Malik Zulu Shabazz, the former head of the New Black Panther Party and current head of Black Lawyers for Justice who called for a “rebellion” if Ferguson, MO officer Darren Wilson is not indicted on murder charges.

Several times Shabazz explained he is calling for a, “rebellion” against America and the “wicked world order,” explaining “we have as much right to rebel against America society as America did against the British.”

He said while he would not call for violence, he would also not condemn it because he explained, “The authority of the white man and white America is illegitimate. You have been killing us for 400 years.”

Shabazz has been on the ground in Ferguson leading protests since Michael Brown was fatally shot by police office Darren Wilson earlier this summer.

Mexican Government Paying to Stop the Deportation of Illegal Immigrants from the US

ART-6-illegal-fft502

Breitbart: The government of Mexico is paying to help its citizens who are living illegally in the United States avoid deportation.

According to a report from National Public Radio, the Mexican government through its 50 consulates around the United States has been helping to fund low-income illegal immigrants to apply for President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA — which shields illegal immigrants from deportation and allows them to work in the U.S.

NPR’s report details the story of Tania Guzman, an illegal immigrant who said the cost of applying for DACA worried her, but she was able to afford it after her pro-bono lawyer from Public Counsel told her she could access financial help from the Mexican Consulate in Los Angeles.

Mexico paid for all Guzman’s attorney fees and application fees, according to NPR. In the end Guzman told NPR she paid just $50.

The report explains that since 2012, the year DACA began, the Mexican Consulate in Los Angeles has assisted more then 260 Mexican illegal immigrants apply for protections under DACA. Continue Reading

Race Merchant Jesse Jackson Thinks “White Privilege” Led To Death Of Ebola Patient

ART-jesse-666rt

Ebola! The news media has focused attention on an outbreak of the Ebola virus in the past month. According to the CDC, ebola causes the disease with “symptoms ranging from fever (greater than 38.6°C or 101.5°F), severe headache, muscle pain, weakness, diarrhea, vomiting, abdominal (stomach) pain and unexplained hemorrhage (bleeding or bruising). Symptoms may appear 2 to 21 days after exposure to Ebola. People who recover from an Ebola infection will develop antibodies that last for 10 years.”

The World Health Organization has reported more than 5,800 cases of Ebola causing more than 2,800 deaths in the current outbreak. However, as reported in the Washington Post, the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention “assumes the actual number of cases is 2.5 times higher than what is officially known.” The CDC projects that 1.4 million people could be infected in Liberia and Sierra Leone by the end of January 2015.

The first person diagnosed with Ebola in the United States is Thomas Eric Duncan. On September 20, 2014, Duncan, a Liberian national, arrived in Dallas. Reports indicate he came to marry his girlfriend. The couple has a son together. Duncan’s case has created anxiety, turmoil and discussion in this country.

Duncan fell ill a few days after arriving in Dallas. He went to the emergency room but he was sent home. Two days later he returned to the hospital with worsening symptoms. Many people are concerned by Duncan’s condition; some are troubled about how he is being treated.

Duncan’s case raises an ethical and moral question: Who gets treatment and why? The two American missionaries who contracted Ebola in West Africa were given access to an experimental drug cocktail called ZMapp. The drug has immune-boosting monoclonal antibodies that were extracted from mice exposed to Ebola DNA. This drug is not provided for the thousands of Africans who have the Ebola virus, including those who have died and might have been saved if given the experimental drug. Duncan is not being treated with the medication. Continue Reading

World Bank Issues Dire Warning about Economic Impact of Ebola

World-MoneyART-8mm99

WASHINGTON -
The economic impact of the Ebola epidemic could reach $32.6 billion by the end of next year if the disease ravaging Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone spreads to neighboring countries in West Africa, the World Bank Group said Wednesday.

The World Bank’s assessment said the economic impact of Ebola is already serious in the three countries and could be catastrophic if it becomes a more regional health crisis. The CDC said last month that unless efforts to curb the outbreak are ramped up significantly and quickly, the disease could infect up to 1.4 million people by mid-January in two nations, Sierra Leone and Liberia, alone.

“With Ebola’s potential to inflict massive economic costs on Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone and the rest of their neighbors in West Africa, the international community must find ways to get past logistical roadblocks and bring in more doctors and trained medical staff, more hospital beds and more health and development support to help stop Ebola in its tracks,” said Jim Yong Kim, president of the World Bank.

He added that the enormous economic cost of the current outbreak to the affected countries and the world “could have been avoided by prudent ongoing investment in strengthening health care systems.”

It is far from certain that the epidemic will be contained by the end of the year, so the report estimated the economic costs of two scenarios as the battle against the disease continues. The report estimated that the economic impact could top $9 billion if the disease is rapidly contained in the three most severely affected countries, but could reach $32.6 billion if it takes a long time to contain Ebola in the three countries and it spreads to neighboring nations.

The economic impacts of the disease are affecting Western nations as well. Spain and the U.S. are the two Western countries who so far have transported their infected citizens out of West Africa at great cost.

It is estimated that the first two flights alone bringing sick American missionaries back from West Africa cost $2 million. So far, 4 Americans have contracted the disease abroad and been flown back to the U.S. for treatment. Continue Reading

Dallas Ebola Patient Dead

TExas-ebola-ART-66-66yt

DALLAS (AP) — The first Ebola patient diagnosed in the United States died Wednesday morning in a Dallas hospital, according to a hospital spokesman.
Thomas Eric Duncan was pronounced dead at 7:51 a.m. at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas, where he was admitted Sept. 28 and has been kept in isolation, according to spokesman Wendell Watson.

Duncan carried the deadly virus with him from his home in Liberia, though he showed no signs when he left for the United States. He arrived in Dallas Sept. 20 and fell sick a few days later. His condition was downgraded during the weekend from serious to critical.

Others in Dallas still are being monitored as health officials try to contain the virus that has ravaged West Africa, with more than 3,400 people reported dead. They also are trying to tamp down anxiety among residents frightened of contracting Ebola, though the disease can be spread only through direct contact with the bodily fluids of an already sick person.

Don’t feel sorry for this man because his intentions showed no concern for your safety or mine, it was all about saving himself, he didn’t give a crap who or how many he infected here in the U.S in order to save himself, I just hope they can contain the spread of Ebola in Texas and we can forget about this selfish sad excuse of a man.

Australian Newspaper’s ‘shemale’ Headline about Murder Victim Sparks PC Outrage

ART-tranny-889yuh

An Australian newspaper has provoked outrage by calling a murdered transgender woman a “she-male” and a “ladyboy”.

Mayang Prasetyo, from Indonesia, was allegedly murdered and dismembered by her boyfriend Marcus Volke, who killed himself after reportedly being caught “cooking” her remains on Saturday.

The gruesome case was sensationally reported in the Courier-Mail, owned by Rupert Murdoch’s NewsCorp.

Its front page headline on Tuesday read “Monster Chef and the She-Male”, featuring a picture of Ms Prasetyo, 27, in a bikini and an inside story was headlined “Ladyboy and the Butcher”.

As outrage spread on social media, a petition was launched under the name of the Brisbane Trans Community, where the murder took place, demanding an apology from the newspaper.

It had been signed by more than 16,000 people by Tuesday morning.

Quoting the Courier-Mail ‘s own code of conduct that stipulates no details of sexual preferences must be included “unless they are relevant”, it argues that the reporting was unnecessary and dehumanizing.

The petition continues: “The transgender community experiences some of the highest levels of violence in any minority and the propagation, scandalization and trivialization of stories like this which diminish a horrific domestic violence crime to a focus on transsexualism (which for the record is no longer the appropriate terminology) does nothing but perpetuate this violent cycle.
“News Limited should be deeply ashamed of the terminology used in this story as well as the clear ‘victim blaming’ it implies.”

The paper has changed the online headline to “Killed and cooked trans woman was high-class sex worker”.

Hundreds of people took to social media to criticize the paper, questioning its decision to run bikini photos. Continue Reading

Commentary:
The liberal mind baffles and astounds me once again; these people are enraged about the fact that the murdered transgender woman was called a “she-male” and a “ladyboy”. What should concern them is Mayang Prasetyo, was allegedly murdered and dismembered by her boyfriend Marcus Volke, who killed himself after he was reportedly was caught “cooking” her remains, this is how screwed up the concerns of these people really are. Cooking a girl/ guy in a stew doesn’t trump political correctness.

Missouri Police Plan For Riots In Ferguson If Officer Is Not Indicted In Brown Shooting

ART22-FERG-66qwkkd

(Reuters) – Missouri authorities are drawing up contingency plans and seeking intelligence from U.S. police departments on out-of-state agitators, fearing that fresh riots could erupt if a grand jury does not indict a white officer for killing a black teen.

The plans are being thrashed out in meetings being held two to three times a week, according to people who have attended them. The FBI said it was also involved in the discussions.

Details of the meetings and intelligence sharing by Missouri police agencies and their counterparts around the country have not been reported before.

The grand jury is expected to decide next month whether to bring criminal charges against police officer Darren Wilson, who shot dead Michael Brown, 18, on Aug. 9 in Ferguson, Missouri.

In differing accounts, police have said Brown struggled with Wilson before the fatal shots were fired. But some witnesses say Brown held up his hands and was surrendering when he was shot multiple times in the head and chest.

If charges are not brought against Wilson, police fear an outbreak of violence not just in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson, but across the greater metropolitan area and even in other U.S. cities, according to St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar and others involved in the planning meetings.

James Knowles, the Ferguson mayor who has attended the meetings, told Reuters the concern is “the unrest is going to be far beyond the city of Ferguson.” Continue Reading

Commentary: What authorities are most worried about is not being able to contain the spread of anger across the nation. They believe Ferguson can be controlled, but the rest of the nation is a different story. (Vic M)
