Trump Pulling US Out Of Muslims-Controlled UNHRC

Controversial UNHRC Chief
Prince Al-Hussein of Jordan.
Trump may pull United States out of UN Human Rights Council due to Israel Bias: The administration regards the Council as being inherently anti-Israel which is the main reason for the consideration for pulling out of the international body, according to the report. Politico reported on Saturday that the Trump administration may soon back Israel on its claim of UN bias and pull out of the organization's Human Rights Council.

According to the report, the administration is not expected to withdraw ahead of the council’s next session that begins on Monday, but discussion of the option has already begun and is expected to include input from Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley and President Donald Trump.

The administration regards the Council as being inherently anti-Israel which is the main reason for the consideration for pulling out of the international body, according to the report. The news site also reported that in private conversations, Secretary Tillerson has expressed doubts about the effectiveness of the Council.

Mattis Calls ISIS Islamic State & Ditches Obama’s ROE

General Mattis's New ROE (Shoot First Ask Later).
It's official: Pentagon now calling terror group 'ISIS'. Not Kerry’s “DAESH.” Not Obama’s “ISIL.” Not “IS.” Pentagon has announced that the Islamic State will officially be called “ISIS” (Islamic State Of Iraq & Syria).

In other words, references to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) will no longer hide its “Islamic” roots as American and European leaders have been trying to do. Thank you, General Mattis. Not Daesh. Not ISIL. Not IS. 

The Pentagon has officially declared the name of the terror group the United States and its allies have been fighting for years is, in fact, ISIS. “We have officially switched to ISIS,” Capt. Jeff Davis, a Pentagon spokesman, said in a briefing with reporters Friday. “They all mean the same thing.” Davis said ISIS already had been used unofficially in the past inside the Pentagon because it was the “easiest to understand.”

The Battle Of 73 Easting Iraq: Desert Storm (1991)

There is an old training axiom that a military force usually learns a great deal more from their defeats than from victories on the battlefield. This has been particularly true with the U.S. Army, which has lost many of its “first battles” during the roughly 225 years it has served the nation. Names like First Manassas, Kasserine Pass, and Task Force Smith are touchstones for American leaders, as they recall the U.S. Army’s failures and defeats.

Usually, these battles remind us of the fact that the Army in the early battles of a conflict is made up of citizen soldiers led by a cadre of peacetime officers, not used to the fast pace, physical rigors, and mental stress of war. The names also remind us that enemies usually attack us when they perceive weakness and an inability to be hurt in the effort. Operation Desert Storm was different.

The 1991 Persian Gulf War was the first of America’s conflicts where a large, standing military force was maintained, equipped, and trained to be ready for the early battles of a major regional conflict. Mostly as a result of Cold War-era preparations for general war with the Soviet Union, American forces were the best trained in the world, superbly prepared to operate the state-of-the-art weaponry that had been supplied to them in the 1980s.

Trump Bars Times, NYT, CNN, & Others From Briefing

WASHINGTON — Journalists from The New York Times and several other news organizations were prohibited from attending a briefing by President Trump’s press secretary on Friday, a highly unusual breach of relations between the White House and its press corps.

Reporters from The Times, BuzzFeed News, CNN, The Los Angeles Times and Politico were not allowed to enter the West Wing office of the press secretary, Sean M. Spicer, for the scheduled briefing. Aides to Mr. Spicer only allowed in reporters from a handpicked group of news organizations that, the White House said, had been previously confirmed.

Those organizations included Breitbart News, the One America News Network and The Washington Times, all with conservative leanings. Journalists from ABC, CBS, The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, and Fox News also attended. Reporters from Time magazine and The Associated Press, who were set to be allowed in, chose not to attend the briefing in protest of the White House’s actions.

Ten Lessons From Battle Of 73 Easting: Desert Storm

One Iraqi T-72 Tank burning in the battle of 73 Easting.
“Other battles would be more destructive than 73 Easting. Other units would fight with the same proficiency demonstrated by Holder’s dragoons. Yet in this first major engagement against the Republican Guard, the U.S. Army demonstrated in a few hours the consequences of twenty years’ toil since Vietnam.

Here could be seen, with almost flawless precision, the lethality of modern American weapons; the hegemony offered by AirLand Battle doctrine, with its brutal ballet of armor, artillery, and air power; and, not least, the élan of the American soldier, who fought with a competence worthy of his forefathers on more celebrated battlefields in more celebrated wars."

- Rick Atkinson, Crusade

The Battle of 73 Easting was one of many fights in Desert Storm. Each of those battles was different. Individual and unit experiences in the same battle often vary widely. The tactics that Army units use to fight future battles will vary considerably from those employed in Desert Storm.

Donald Trump Picks Lt. Gen. McMaster As New NSA

President Donald Trump picked Army Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster to replace Michael Flynn as his national security adviser on Monday. Trump told reporters at his Mar-a-lago estate in Palm Beach, Fla. that McMaster would replace Flynn as national security adviser.

The president touted McMaster's credentials, saying he is "a man of tremendous talent and tremendous experience." "I watched and read a lot over the last two days. He is highly respected by everybody in the military, and we're very honored to have him," the president added.

McMaser called it a "privilege" to be appointed national security adviser. "I would just like to say what a privilege it is to be able to continue serving our nation," McMaster told reporters. "I'm grateful to you for that opportunity, and I look forward to joining the national security team and doing everything that I can to advance and protect the interests of the American people."

McMaster, 54, has been regarded as "smart, energetic, and tough" by Tom Ricks of Foreign Policy. When McMaster was a colonel he served as an advising officer on counterinsurgency operations in Iraq for David Petraeus, who was leading U.S. combat operations in the country at the time.

Nuclear Accident In Russia? Europe Highly Radioactive!

FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE? Dangerous radioactive particles have been detected across Europe and no-one knows where they came from. Scientists baffled after detecting cancer-causing chemical that's produced during nuclear disasters or atomic bomb blasts.

DANGEROUS radioactive particles have been detected in seven different European countries and scientists can’t explain where they have come from. Traces of Iodine-131 were found in Norway, Finland, Poland, Czech Republic, Germany, France and Spain in January, but the public were not immediately alerted.

The map below shows where the particles have been detected. These radioactive particles are produced by atomic bomb explosions or nuclear disasters such as Chernobyl or Fukushima. They appear to be emanating from Eastern Europe, but experts have not been able to say exactly what produced them.

Astrid Liland, head of emergency preparedness at the Norwegian Radiation Protection Authority, told the Barents Observer that the health risk was very low – which was why she did not raise the alarm after detecting Iodine-131 during the second week of January. The Iodine-131 may have leaked from nuclear reactors or medical facilities.

Lt. General Flynn: First Victim Of Obama’s Sabotage

In light of the recent flurry of leaks by the so-called "deep state", which includes such agencies as the NSA and FBI and which last week lead to the resignation of Mike Flynn after a phone recording of his phone conversation with the Russian ambassador was leaked to the pro-left Washington Post and other anti-Trump publications, an article published on January 12 by the NYT has generated renewed interest.

One month ago, the NYT reported that "In its final days, the Obama administration expanded the power of the National Security Agency to share globally intercepted personal communications with the government’s 16 other intelligence agencies before applying privacy protections."

The new rules significantly relax longstanding limits on what the N.S.A. may do with the information gathered by its most powerful surveillance operations, which are largely unregulated by American wiretapping laws. These include collecting satellite transmissions, phone calls and emails that cross network switches abroad, and messages between people abroad that cross domestic network switches.

ISIS Muslim Admitted Raping 200 Girls & Killing 500 Men

Captured Evil Muslim Amar Hussein of ISIS in Mosul.
SULAIYMANIYA, IRAQ — Islamic State militant and a devout Muslim Amar Hussein says he reads the Koran all day in his tiny jail cell to become a better person. He also says he raped more than 200 women from Iraqi minorities, and shows few regrets.

Kurdish intelligence authorities gave Reuters rare access to Hussein (his sir name is same as the middle name of Barack Obama the first Black-Muslim president of US) and another Islamic State militant who were both captured during an assault on the city of Kirkuk in October that killed 99 civilians and members of the security forces. Sixty-three Islamic State militants died.

Hussein said his emirs, or local Islamic State commanders, gave him and others a green light to rape as many Yazidi and other women as they wanted. “Young men need this,” Hussein told Reuters in an interview after a Kurdish counter-terrorism agent removed a black hood from his head. “This is normal.”

Paki Sharia Bitch Is Banning Islamophobia In Canada

(Compilation of articles from various Canadian sources in February 2017.)

What is Really Behind Canada’s Anti-Islamophobia Motions? A Liberal Member of Canadian Parliament (MP), Iqra Khalid, who has strongly suggested “that terrorism carried out by Muslims ‘has no religion,'” has tabled a second anti-Islamophobia motion in Parliament.

The motion M-103 is titled “Systemic racism and religious discrimination,” but it specifies that Canadians must “condemn Islamophobia and all forms of systemic racism and religious discrimination and take note of House of Commons’ petition e-411 and the issues raised by it.”

Petition e-411 was forwarded in June, stating that “We, the undersigned, Citizens and residents of Canada, call upon the House of Commons to join us in recognizing that extremist individuals do not represent the religion of Islam, and in condemning all forms of Islamophobia.”

Swedish Ministers’ Hypocrisy: Wear Hijabs In Iran

(Two articles from The FRONTPAGEMAG and UN WATCH in February 2017.)

Swedish feminist minister in Hijab and Chador?
Sweden’s so-called first feminist government wears “Please Do Not Rape Us” Islamist hijabs in Iran: You can think of the Hijab in a variety of ways.

1. There's the straight Koranic origin for making women cover up. So they are recognized as Muslim women and Muslim men know not to rape them. “O Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks (veils) all over their bodies that they may thus be distinguished and not molested.” (Koran 33:59)

One Koranic commentary is quite explicit. “It is more likely that this way they may be recognized (as pious, free women), and may not be hurt (considered by mistake as roving slave girls.)” The Yazidi girls captured and raped by ISIS are an example of “roving slave girls” who can be assaulted by Muslim men.

Muslim rapists and their clerics have utilized the "She wasn't wearing a Hijab" defense in contemporary times in Western nations. Most notably in the Sydney gang rape case. Australia’s Grand Mufti, the infamous Sheikh Hilaly, had said, in response to a Muslim gang rape case, that in sexual matters, “it's 90 per cent the women's responsibility.”

Close All Mosques & Ban Koran: Wilders’ De-Islamization

(Various articles from The BREITBART, RT, & ZERO HEDGE on 16 February 2017.)

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — Geert Wilders, the Dutch anti-Islam lawmaker who is at the vanguard of a wave of European far-right populists aiming to take power at elections this year, is pushing ahead with his platform to “de-Islamisize” the Netherlands, despite lawyers saying it could breach the Dutch constitution.

In an interview Thursday with The Associated Press, Wilders insisted that his plans, which include closing the country’s borders to asylum seekers and migrants from Islamic countries, shutting all mosques, and banning the Quran, are legal. And he hinted he could even seek to change the constitution, if necessary.

Wilders says, “a constitution is not something that is (set) in stone and can never be changed.” Wilders’ Party is riding high in polls less than a month before parliamentary elections set for March 15.

Mastermind Behind The Hit On Muslim Leader Ko Ni?

(Based on related articles from various Burmese sources in February 2017.)

Lt. Colonel Aung Win Khaing (45).
On 15 February 2017 – (nearly three weeks of news blackout after the assassination of Ko Ni in public at Rangoon International Airport on last January-29, and after so many unconfirmed but persistent rumours of direct involvement of third person in the hit) -- Burmese President Office has finally released a statement on that person – (A former Lt. Colonel from Burmese Army) – now a wanted fugitive as follows:

Appendix-2 of the press release of the President’s Office on the shooting at Yangon International Airport

The plan to assassinate U Ko Ni, a legal adviser for the national league for Democracy, was months in the planning and involved a gunman hired for Ks 80 million and two brothers, one of whom is still on the loose, according to a press release from President’s office.

The statement from the President’s office released late yesterday on the 29 January fatal shooting of U Ko Ni reveals a chilling murder-for-hire plot that involved intricate planning, at least Ks100 million in cash and a gunman willing to kill.

Hating Valentine’s: Why Muslims & Lefties Loathe Love

Today, February 14, is Valentine’s Day, the sacred day that intimate companions mark to celebrate their love and affection for one another. If you’re thinking about making a study of how couples celebrate this day, the Muslim world and the milieus of the radical Left are not the places you should be spending your time.

Indeed, it’s pretty hard to outdo Islamists and “progressives” when it comes to the hatred of Valentine’s Day. And this hatred is precisely the territory on which the contemporary romance between the Left and Islamic Supremacism is formed.

The train is never late: every year that Valentine’s comes around, the Muslim world erupts with ferocious rage, with its leaders doing everything in their power to suffocate the festivity that comes with the celebration of private romance. Imams around the world thunder against Valentine’s every year — and the celebration of the day itself is literally outlawed in Islamist states.

Obama Is Scheming To Sabotage Trump’s Presidency

When former President Barack Obama said he was “heartened” by anti-Trump protests, he was sending a message of approval to his troops. Troops? Yes, Obama has an army of agitators — numbering more than 30,000 — who will fight his Republican successor at every turn of his historic presidency. And Obama will command them from a bunker less than two miles from the White House.

In what’s shaping up to be a highly unusual post-presidency, Muslim Obama isn’t just staying behind in Washington. He’s working behind the scenes to set up what will effectively be a shadow government to not only protect his threatened legacy, but to sabotage the incoming administration and its popular “America First” agenda.

He’s doing it through a network of leftist nonprofits led by the Organizing for Action (OFA). Normally you’d expect an organization set up to support a politician and his agenda to close up shop after that candidate leaves office, but not Obama’s OFA. Rather, it’s gearing up for battle, with a growing war chest and more than 250 offices across the country.

The Flight 93 Election: We May Die Anyway With Trump

Flight-93: One of four ill-fated 9-11 flights.
2016 is the Flight 93 election: charge the cockpit or you die. You may die anyway. You—or the leader of your party—may make it into the cockpit and not know how to fly or land the plane. There are no guarantees.

Except one: if you don’t try, death is certain. To compound the metaphor: a Hillary Clinton presidency is Russian Roulette with a semi-auto. With Trump, at least you can spin the cylinder and take your chances.

To ordinary conservative ears, this sounds histrionic. The stakes can’t be that high because they are never that high—except perhaps in the pages of Gibbon. Conservative intellectuals will insist that there has been no “end of history” and that all human outcomes are still possible.

They will even—as Charles Kesler does—admit that America is in “crisis.” But how great is the crisis? Can things really be so bad if eight years of Obama can be followed by eight more of Hillary, and yet Constitutionalist conservatives can still reasonably hope for a restoration of our cherished ideals? Cruz in 2024!

Leftie-Muslim Alliance Demands West Surrender To Islam

IN A STATEMENT PUBLISHED in its online magazine, Dabiq, this February, the militant group the Islamic State warned that “Muslims in the West will soon find themselves between one of two choices.” Weeks earlier, a massacre had occurred at the Paris offices of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo.

The attack stunned French society, while bringing to the surface already latent tensions between French Muslims and their fellow citizens. While ISIS initially endorsed the killings on purely religious grounds, calling the murdered cartoonists blasphemers, in Dabiq the group offered another, more chilling rationale for its support.

The attack had “further [brought] division to the world,” the group said, boasting that it had polarized society and “eliminated the grayzone,” representing coexistence between religious groups. As a result, it said, Muslims living in the West would soon no longer be welcome in their own societies.

Treated with increasing suspicion, distrust and hostility by their fellow citizens as a result of the deadly shooting, Western Muslims would soon be forced to “either apostatize … or they [migrate] to the Islamic State, and thereby escape persecution from the crusader governments and citizens,” the group stated, while threatening of more attacks to come.

Last Friday, at roughly 9:20 p.m. local time in Paris, the Islamic State delivered on that threat. A group of young Muslim men pledging allegiance to the group, armed with firearms and explosives, carried out a series of coordinated bombing and shooting attacks on civilians in the heart of the city.

Child Rape And Torture In Pakistani Madrassas

I was about 10-years-old in the late 90s, when I was forced to go to a madrassa by my mother. I didn’t want to go. I had heard many notorious stories about madrassas and was quite shaken at the thought of being a part of one. Nonetheless, I was sent to become a good Muslim.

I am a resident of Karachi and come from a conservative family where burqas and Assalam-o-Alaikum are necessary to gain respect from your family and friends. My mother used to emphasize on learning the Holy Quran as I grew up. When I asked her: “Mom, why can’t I just sit at home and learn the Quran with you?” She replied with: “There’s no better place to learn the Quran than a madrassa.”

I still remember my first day there. I was sent to one of the biggest madrassas in Karachi. I walked in with shivering legs. Looking around me, I found myself in a place with huge ceilings and small rooms where children were sitting together reciting the Quran. The desks they were using were quite weird – I have never seen anything of the like before.

Fear Spreads In LA As Mass Deportation Had Begun

Daily round-up of illegals are causing widespread fears in LA.
The panicked emails and phone calls began streaming in from community members at about 11 a.m. Thursday morning, inundating Los Angeles immigration lawyers with far more cases than usual. Immigrant advocate groups claim that more than 100 people had been taken into custody by federal immigration officials in Southern California Thursday, indicating a “coordinated sweep” in arrests and heightening fears that Donald Trump’s promise to crackdown on deportations had begun to take effect.

Police and immigration officials denied the “raids” and disputed the claim that the arrests were part of a more stringent approach, saying any detentions were simply part of “routine” enforcement activities. But a flurry of calls regarding arrests spurred immigration attorneys into rapid response efforts, and prompted protests on the streets of downtown Los Angeles.

“We know the daily patterns of people being picked up and taken,” Angelica Salas, executive director of the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles, or CHIRLA, said in an interview with The Washington Post. “There’s a natural flow of enforcement that happens every day. But this was not normal.”

Millions And Millions Of Brutally Bad Mohammads

One bad Mohammad gone mad and killed 4 unarmed marines.
Before Mohammad Youssduf Adulazeer shot up a military recruiting center in Chattanooga from a car and then sped away, another Mohammed, Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad did much the same thing in 2009. Both struck military recruiting centers in the South, but the 2009 Mohammed had a message for Americans that we unfortunately failed to heed.

"This is not the first attack, and won't be the last," Muhammad warned. “I'm just one Muhammad. There are millions of Muhammads out there. And I hope and pray the next one be more deadlier than Muhammad Atta!”

There are millions of Mohammeds out there. It took exactly six years for one of them to finish what his predecessor started. In a world with lots of Mohammeds, we really need to consider whether we want Mohammed becoming the most common name for a boy in America, as it already has in countries like the UK.

The murderous Mohammeds embody the values of the original Mohammed, the founder of their brutal ideology. They kill like him. They kill in his name. A country with more Mohammeds, is a country with more Muslim terrorism.

Erdogan Turns Turkish Schools To Islamic Madrassas

What Turkish Islamists Understand about 'Education': It is customary for Turkish TV crews to interview young students at the start of their mid-term holidays, with the cliché closing question invariably being, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" This year's school holiday in January was no exception. One interview, however, produced a chilling portrait of a girl, aged just 7 or 8.

"I have big goals," she answered the interviewer. "They will get bigger and bigger. Step by step," she said. The girl said she wanted to start by becoming a district or village head. Then a lawmaker, a minister, prime minister and finally the president of Turkey.

Up to this point, TV viewers must have watched her with amusement. Then the reporter asked her: "What would you do if you became the president?" In a calculated, tranquil tone, the girl answered: "I would reinstate the death penalty".

She was merely one of the products of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's ambitious social engineering project to "raise devout generations". A proud moment in President Erdogan's educational plans to "raise devout generations”.

Obama Did Not Tell Us What Was In Iran Nuclear Deal

On Jan. 30, 2017, Iran tested a new ballistic missile, seemingly the long-range Khorramshahr. In response, the White House announced sanctions against 25 Iranian individuals and companies. It’s a small reaction to an extraordinary provocation that rips away the curtain obscuring America’s foreign-policy decisions, past and present.

The past first. Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) congratulated the White House on the sanctions, which was a little hypocritical since he was one of the people who caused the problem in the first place. In negotiating the secret Iran deal, President Barack Obama took the position that it wasn’t a treaty and therefore didn’t require Senate ratification under the Constitution. Had it been a treaty, Obama would’ve needed two-thirds of the upper chamber’s votes — which he wouldn’t have gotten.

Instead, Corker flipped the procedure around with a motion to condemn the treaty, which would’ve required a two-thirds vote to override a presidential veto. That wasn’t going to happen, so Obama got his treaty.

Judge Robart Ignorantly Lifted Trump’s Muslim Ban

The Seattle judge who temporarily banned the White House’s refugee reform plan acted after mistakenly claiming the federal government has not arrested jihadi migrants from the seven Muslim countries covered by the reform.

But the federal government has arrested and jailed at least 76 people since 2001 from the seven countries covered in the first stage of the president’s reform, which was announced late January. That fact means there is a huge error in the judge’s rationale for imposing a “Temporary Restraining Order” ban on the president’s popular reform of the expensive refugee and immigration programs.

In a hearing before the decision, Judge James Robart told a lawyer from the Department of Justice that the federal government has not arrested people since 2001 from any of the seven countries named in the reform, since the 20o1 atrocity in New York. “How many arrests have there been of foreign nationals for those seven countries since 9/11?” he asked.

The Scandal Of UN's HRC Chief Prince Zeid al-Hussein

On June 16, the 193 member states of the United Nations General Assembly unanimously approved Prince Zeid Raad Zeid al-Hussein of Jordan as the new High Commissioner for Human Rights, charged with spearheading the U.N.’s human rights activities.

The nomination of longtime career diplomat Ambassador Zeid has been largely met with approval from major human rights organizations. Human Rights Watch’s executive director Kenneth Roth tweeted that Zeid had "a strong rights record." Suzanne Nossel, former director of Amnesty International USA and current executive director of PEN America, also wrote a mostly positive piece on Ambassador Zeid in Foreign Policy.

These positive reactions are based on Ambassador Zeid’s role in advancing the International Criminal Court and seeking to hold U.N. peacekeeping personnel accountable for sexual violence. Diplomats from Western democracies also highlight Zeid’s Muslim and Arab background combined with his progressive credentials as crucial for bridging the gap between the U.N.’s Western states and Asian (particularly Islamic) countries.

Flynn’s Plan To Destroy Islam In US Starts With Schools

Flynn’s plan to beat radical Islam starts with schools and social media: President Trump’s national security adviser wants to fight not just Islamic terrorists but the “radical ideology of Islam,” and he plans to do it from the grass roots up, starting with our children at schools while also using social media.

Dealing with the global Islamist threat on a tactical level through drone strikes and arrests hasn’t worked, retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn argues, according to his largely overlooked 2016 book, “The Field of Fight: How We Can Win the Global War Against Radical Islam and Its Allies.” He wants to combat it more broadly, using informational warfare, among other things, on a scale not seen since World War II.

But first, he writes, the government has to overcome the political taboo of tying Islamic violence to the religion of Islam, including its sacred texts, which he says the enemy is using as a manual of warfare.

Last week, Trump asked Flynn to work with the Pentagon and other security agencies to draft a comprehensive plan to not only defeat ISIS on the battlefield but “delegitimize its radical Islamist ideology,” and have it on his desk by the end of this month.

Who Are Behind The Hit On Ko Ni At Rangoon Airport?

(Translated articles from various Burmese sources in February 2017.)

Alleged mastermind?
Burmese Muslim leader and so-called constitutional law scholar Ko Ni was bitterly hated by Burmese Buddhist nationalist for his relentless demands to rid the 2008 Constitution and rewrite a new constitution guaranteeing at least ten percent of parliamentary seats for the Muslims in Burma.

And he was killed by a lone assassin in an apparent hit on him at Rangoon International Airport on Sunday January-29 upon his arrival back from a so-called fact finding trip from Muslim-majority Indonesia where Muslims have managed to wipe out most Buddhists, Christians, and Hindus.

The killer named Kyi Linn a 53-year-old Buddhist Burmese man (an ex-convict) was captured at the scene and under severe torture he had finally confessed. According to the police he stated that a former inmate he used to know many years back in Mandalay’s Oboe Prison had hired him to kill Ko Ni whom he claimed he doesn’t know as the infamous Muslim leader. And the reward supposed to be was a brand new car.

He named his mastermind as Myint Swe (alias) Aung Win Zaw a former army officer and an ex-convict with clandestine connections to the DKBA (Democratic Karen Buddhist Army) extremely active in Both Mandalay and Karen State and also on the lawless Thai-Burma border.

Democrats Clueless & Powerless After Obama & Hillary

Two biggest losers Democrats Schumer and Pelosi.
(CNN) Democrats are spending the opening weeks of the Trump administration trying to flex their muscle any way they can -- boycotting confirmation hearings, refusing to work with Republicans on Obamacare and pondering a filibuster of President Donald Trump's Supreme Court pick.

But as Democrats throw every procedural hurdle they can think of at Trump, they're facing a bleak reality: they have virtually no power in Washington. The party has no clear successor to Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton who can speak with one voice for the party. And there is no consensus yet on a strategy to thwart Trump's legislative agenda -- or even how to prioritize the issues they plan to challenge him on.

There's one thing giving them comfort: Trump himself. The President's initial actions in office have been so breathtaking in their scope and breadth that frustrated Democrats say their base is galvanized in ways they haven't seen in a long time. That could make it easier for Democratic groups to gear up for a more forceful effort to sway the balance of power in 2018 and 2020.

Switzerland: Chocolate, Watches, Cowbells, & Jihad

In November 2016, Swiss police arrested the imam of the an'Nur mosque in Winterthur, in the canton of Zürich, for calling for the murder of Muslims who refuse to participate in communal prayer.

The young imam, who had come from Ethiopia, had been in Switzerland for only a short time. The Zurich Federation of Islamic Organizations (Vioz) declared it was "shocked", and suspended the an'Nur mosque from the federation until further notice: "We are shocked that an imam in one of our houses of prayer called for violence."

There is little cause for "shock". Already in 2015, Winterthur made headlines in Switzerland as an emerging center for young Muslims with jihadi ambitions. Four people from Winterthur managed to travel to Syria to join ISIS and a fifth was stopped at the airport in Zürich.

In November 2015, Swiss journalist and Syria expert, Kurt Pelda said, "The IS has a cell in Winterthur in the vicinity of the An'Nur Mosque in Hegi, there is no longer any doubt." He also said that in addition to the five known cases, another man from Winterthur had travelled to Syria as well.

Burmese Buddhists’ Reactions To Muslim Leader's Killing

Post praising U Ko Ni's alleged assassin goes viral in Myanmar: A post praising Kyi Linn — the man now in custody for the murder of the widely respected Muslim lawyer U Ko Ni — has gained over 18,000 shares and over 36,000 reactions on Facebook since being posted at around 10:30pm on Sunday night.

The post includes a photo of Kyi Linn shortly after his arrest. In the caption accompanying the original post, Tin Ko Latt writes: Let’s honor U Kyi Linn from Mandalay who did the work of a hero by risking his life for the whole country and killing that scoundrel Nga Ni​. Fee free to disagree. According to the infamous Rohingya Blogger and activist Ro Nay San Lwin, "Nga Ni" is a disrespectful distortion of U Ko Ni's name.

Some of the 110 comments on the post disapprove of Tin Ko Latt's message, and many of the shares condemn it as well. One post from yesterday says: "The murderer is not a hero. This is the work of an uneducated individual. The country cannot develop and religion cannot flourish with these kinds of people, and will only get worse." However, others certainly agree with Tin Ko Latt's praise for the suspected assassin.
