Citizenship Amendment Bill:
India's new 'anti-Muslim' law explained

Original Article

Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk, 12/11/2019 12:13:55 PM

India's parliament has passed a bill which offers amnesty to non-Muslim illegal immigrants from three neighbouring countries. The controversial bill will provide citizenship to religious minorities in Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan. (Snip) Now there will be an exception for members of six religious minority communities - Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Jain, Parsi and Christian - if they can prove that they are from Pakistan, Afghanistan or Bangladesh. They will only have to live or work in India for six years to be eligible for citizenship by naturalisation, the process by which a non-citizen acquires the citizenship or nationality of that country.

Comments:

While this would never see the light of day here because of the dRATS infanticide party anti-Christian bias. Interesting to see in such a large country mired in poverty, taking in so many refugees.

Pakistan was CREATED to provide a place for Indian Muslims to go. It's outrageous that India even tolerates them at all within their border, but as we all know about Islam, it's a political movement disguising itself as a religion. It is corrosive, treasonous, and deadly and our Framers, had they known more about it, would have gladly outlawed it from being considered a "religion" protected under our Constitution. No "faith" deserves to be protected by the very Constitution it seeks to destroy.

I've been telling people for years that Indians are smarter than Americans and not just in computer programming. After 9/11/01 we should have torn down every mosque in the country and deported them until we ran out of ships.

Israel to reinstitute 'assassinations policy' 8 replies
Posted by LittleHoodedMonk 12/26/2019 12:24:34 PM Post Reply
Jerusalem - Israel's foreign minister on Thursday said Tel Aviv would return to "the policy of assassinations" against Palestinian resistance figures in the Gaza Strip. In statements he made to Israel's army radio, Yisrael Katz indicated that there was "an intelligence effort to identify the rockets' launchers and work to eliminate them." He stressed: "Intelligence efforts are currently focused on determining who is responsible for ordering missile launch instructions in order to work to eliminate him." On Wednesday evening, Israel's iron dome anti-missile system intercepted a missile reportedly fired from the Gaza Strip towards the country's south while Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was attending an election rally in Ashkelon province.

Japan has executed a Chinese national who was found guilty of murdering a family of four, putting to death a foreigner for the first time in a decade. Wei Wei, a 40-year-old language student who studied in Japan, was hanged after over 16 years on death row for the murders and robbery. Justice minister Masako Mori said Wei was executed at Fukuoka detention centre on the Japanese island of Kyushu on Thursday. He was convicted of robbing and killing a married couple and their two children at their home in Fukuoka in 2003. (Snip) Amnesty International said the hanging showed Japan's "shocking lack of respect for the right to life."

Arlington, Virginia — All Marines train hard. But few are tougher and none are stronger than an elite unit of 10 Marines stationed in Washington, D.C. (Snip) The mission of these mightiest of Marines is to shoulder the burden of American grief. They are the Body Bearers and every day at Arlington National Cemetery, in teams of six, they carry the caskets. Other branches of the service use eight men and carry lower. But Marines pride themselves on doing more with less and they take that pride to the grave. To do this, and to make it look so effortless, they practice with a weighted coffin day and night,

Baltimore - Baltimore could wrap up 2019 with its highest per-capita homicide rate on record as killings of adults and minors alike for drugs, retribution, money or no clear reason continue to add up and city officials appear unable to stop the violence. Police recorded 338 homicides as of Tuesday, following a week of relentless gunfire that saw eight people shot — three of them fatally — in one day and nine others — one fatally — another day. That total is up from 309 in 2018 (Snip) By contrast, New York City, with more than 8 million residents, had 306 homicides through Dec. 15.

President Trump’s election victory in 2016 panicked the adult film industry because it expected the biggest crackdown on pornography since the Reagan administration. Mr. Trump was the only presidential candidate to sign a pledge from an anti-pornography group vowing to enforce existing laws against adult materials. The Republican platform branded pornography “a public health crisis” and conservative culture warriors filled the administration. (Snip) Although pornography is easily accessible on the internet, the sale or distribution of hard-core materials online or by mail is a violation of federal law. It is also illegal to transport obscene materials across state lines.

A stunning panorama of Mars shows the final resting place of NASA’s Opportunity. The image is a series of 354 individual pictures snapped by the rover over a 29-day period before it shutdown completely and declared 'dead' by the American space agency earlier this year. The desolate Martian landscape known as Perseverance Valley was the last thing the rover saw and now serves as its graveyard. (Snip) NASA explained that Opportunity was not expected to last 15 years, but noted it had contributed greatly to their understanding of the planet’s geology and environment, ‘laying groundwork for future robotic and human missions on the Red Planet’,

A state-of-the-art Russian fighter jet has crashed on a training mission just days before the first of the aircraft was due to be delivered to Putin's air force. The Sukhoi Su-57 stealth fighter crashed in a ball of flames in the far east of Russia and was 'fully destroyed', officials said. (Snip) Russia's air force has ordered 76 of the $155 million (£120million) planes, which are intended to rival America's F-22 Raptor stealth fighters - to which they are similar. The Su-57 is also similar to the Chinese J-20 jet, which is alleged to have been built using stolen US plans obtained by Chinese hackers.

When Syracuse University freshmen walk into professor Jeff Rubin’s Introduction to Information Technologies class, seven small Bluetooth beacons hidden around the Grant Auditorium lecture hall connect with an app on their smartphones and boost their “attendance points.” (Snip) Short-range phone sensors and campuswide WiFi networks are empowering colleges across the United States to track hundreds of thousands of students more precisely than ever before. Dozens of schools now use such technology to monitor students’ academic performance, analyze their conduct or assess their mental health. But some professors and education advocates argue

North Korea’s vague threats of a potential year-end provocation – what the regime has dubbed a “Christmas gift” – have analysts and ex-officials urging the Trump administration to consider tougher options toward Pyongyang in 2020. Kim Jong Un’s regime wants sanctions eased by the end of the year, and its warnings have prompted speculation they could be planning a new missile test, possibly of an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of delivering a nuclear warhead. (Snip) "We'll see what happens. Let's see. Maybe it's a nice present, maybe it's a present where he sends me a beautiful vase as opposed to a missile test ... you never know," he said.

As if honey bees didn’t have enough to contend with, from pesticides to bacterial pathogens, another nemesis has emerged in the Pacific Northwest, one capable of freaking out humans, too. It’s called the Asian giant hornet — and is also known as the yak-killer hornet, the commander wasp in Korea and the tiger head bee in Taiwan, according to experts. As the names indicate, the hornets are indigenous to Asia, but some appeared for the first time this month in Washington State, where agricultural officials have issued a pest alert and warned that the hornets pose a threat to honeybees. They showed up in British Columbia in August,

Iran’s armed forces will hold a joint, four-day naval exercise with Russia and China in the northern part of the Indian Ocean, a spokesman said Wednesday. The drill, which is to start on Saturday, will be the first such trilateral exercise as Tehran seeks to boost military cooperation with Beijing and Moscow amid unprecedented economic sanctions from Washington. Visits to Iran by Russian and Chinese naval representatives have also stepped up in recent years.

Congressional Democrats who fear Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham may be conducting a partisan investigation into the origins of the FBI’s probe into Russian meddling in U.S. elections are calling on him to resign. Rep. Hank Johnson, D-Ga., has written Attorney General William Barr and Durham, saying “neither of you possess the integrity necessary to serve in the Department of Justice.” Signed by 10 of Johnson’s House Democratic colleagues — but none from Connecticut — the letter’s demand for Barr’s resignation is not unique. In May, for instance, Connecticut Sen. Richard Blumenthal said Barr should “probably resign” because,

Late Senator John McCain provided disgraced former FBI chief James Comey with five separate reports from Christopher Steele that the FBI didn’t previously possess related to unsubstantiated allegations of collusion between Russia and President Trump’s 2016 campaign, the Justice Department’s recent Inspector General report revealed. There have long been questions about why it was necessary for McCain to pass Steele’s anti-Trump dossier to Comey on December 9, 2016, several weeks after the November 2016 presidential election. By then, Steele had already met numerous times with FBI agents to provide them with his controversial reports.

MSNBC anchor Chuck Todd is facing criticism over a recent interview in which he confused author Toni Morrison and poet Maya Angelou.

"I fully admit, listening to you ask that question now, and me giving you the honest answer of, yeah, I guess I really believed they wouldn’t do this. Just so absurdly naive in hindsight," Todd responded. "Donald Trump’s entire life has been spent using misinformation.

So I haven’t posted a tweet in nine months. How am I doing? I’m still in recovery. Over the previous 10 years, I had written 180,000 tweets. Yes, I said 180,000. That’s 18,000 a year, 1,500 a month. I was putting out an average of 50 tweets a day — while holding down a full-time job editing a magazine, with two firm writing deadlines every week, and raising three children with a wife who works full-time. How was that even possible? Well, I’ve always written fast. And for much of my life, I’ve felt like a frustrated would-be stand-up comic.

Pete Buttigieg has tried to carve out a niche among Democratic presidential hopefuls as the candidate who is comfortable talking about religion. Unfortunately, he’s only comfortable trying to use religion as a means of beating conservatives, especially religious ones, over the head. This annoying penchant was on display again in Buttigieg’s Christmas message. He tweeted: Today I join millions around the world in celebrating the arrival of divinity on earth, who came into this world not in riches but in poverty, not as a citizen but as a refugee. No matter where or how we celebrate, merry Christmas. Buttigieg’s message struck me as fake history.

With the help of Senate Republicans, Donald Trump spent the first three years of his presidency remaking the federal judiciary in his own image. The president has appointed 133 district court judges, 50 appeals court judges, and two Supreme Court justices—meaning about one-fifth of the nation’s federal trial judges, and one-fourth of its federal appellate judges, are Trump appointees. These jurists are leading a conservative revolution that will upend decades of precedent and enshrine reactionary policies into the law. The transformation has only just begun.
