Iranian parliament declares US Central Command a 'terrorist organization'

Iranian parliament declares US Central Command a 'terrorist organization' | 17 April 2019 | The US Central Command (CENTCOM) has been designated as a "terrorist organization" by the Iranian parliament, in a mirror response to Washington's blacklisting of Tehran's Revolutionary Guard. All organizations, institutions and forces under CENTCOM command were acknowledged to be "terrorists" by the overwhelming majority of the Iranian MPs, who approved the contents of the bill, which also condemns the US move to blacklist the IRGC, an official military branch of the Islamic Republic of Iran's Armed Forces. "The Islamic Republic of Iran's government and Armed Forces are required to adopt preventive actions and preemptive defensive measures whenever necessary, to deter any hostile US forces' use of any possibilities against the Islamic Republic of Iran's interests," the bill states, according to Fars news. Anyone offering military, intelligence, financial, or any other support to CENTCOM and its affiliate forces will be considered supporters of terrorism.

Discriminatory censorship? GoFundMe bans anti-vaccine crowdfunding

Discriminatory censorship? GoFundMe bans anti-vaccine crowdfunding | 17 April 2019 | Crowdfunding platform GoFundMe’s decision to ban anti-vaxxers is discriminatory and hypocritical, media and legal analyst Lionel tells RT, even if the selective censorship by a non-governmental body is -- strictly speaking -- legal. "Is this an opinion, and is this a discussion point that should be protected? And if so, by whom?" Lionel asks rhetorically, explaining that, while as a private company GoFundMe has a right to kick anti-vaxxers off its platform, if a competing fundraising site tried to ban a more socially-acceptable group -- an LGBT activist organization, say, or a pro-choice campaign -- "they'd be in the streets and screaming and yelling!" [Exactly!]

Trump vetoes measure ending US support for Saudi-led war in Yemen

Trump vetoes measure ending US support for Saudi-led war in Yemen | 16 April 2019 | President Trump on Tuesday vetoed a measure that would have cut off U.S. military support for the Saudi-led campaign in Yemen's civil war, rebuking Congress for a second time this year. The resolution, which would have required Trump to withdraw any U.S. troops in or "affecting" Yemen within 30 days unless they are fighting al Qaeda, reached the president's desk after it passed the House in a vote of 247-175 earlier this month. The Senate had passed it in a vote of 54-46 last month. Neither the House nor Senate vote was enough to override a veto.

US unseals Assange affidavit, revealing probable cause for extradition and arrest for 'conspiracy'

US unseals Assange affidavit, revealing probable cause for extradition and arrest for 'conspiracy' | 16 April 2019 | US prosecutors have unsealed an affidavit against Julian Assange that outlines their case against the WikiLeaks co-founder on a single count of "conspiracy to commit computer intrusion" that may or may not have succeeded. As FBI special agent Megan Brown admits in the affidavit, "it remains unknown whether Manning and Assange were successful in cracking the password" to the Department of Defense computer they allegedly conspired to hack, meaning the sole charge against Assange remains his alleged attempt to assist Chelsea (then Bradley) Manning in accessing the documents that were eventually leaked in 2010.

Families sue New York City over mandatory measles vaccine order: 5 mothers say the emergency order and threat of $1,000 fine is unlawful, antisemitic, and totalitarian

Families sue New York City over mandatory measles vaccine order: 5 mothers say the emergency order and threat of $1,000 fine is unlawful, antisemitic, and totalitarian --Vera Sharav, a child survivor of the Holocaust said in affidavit: 'Dictatorships always invoke "the greater good of society" when they trample individual human rights.' | 15 April 2019 | Five Brooklyn mothers have sued New York City for ordering mandatory measles vaccinations, accusing Mayor Bill de Blasio of unlawfully targeting Jews with an 'arbitrary' state of emergency. De Blasio declared a state of emergency on Tuesday, giving him the power to order vaccinations in four Brooklyn ZIP codes where 285 measles cases have been reported since October, particularly in the Orthodox Jewish community. Today, five mothers, with the support of five doctors and patient advocates, filed a lawsuit through anti-vaxxer attorney Robert F Kennedy, demanding that the order be suspended. They say vaccines go against their religious belief that they should not put a foreign body in their or their child's body, and they believe de Blasio's order unfairly targeted Jews.

Catholic Churches Are Being Desecrated Across France - and Officials Don't Know Why

Catholic Churches Are Being Desecrated Across France - and Officials Don't Know Why | 21 March 2019 | France has seen a spate of attacks against Catholic churches since the start of the year, vandalism that has included arson and desecration. Vandals have smashed statues, knocked down tabernacles, scattered or destroyed the Eucharist and torn down crosses, sparking fears of a rise in anti-Catholic sentiment in the country. Last Sunday, the historic Church of St. Sulpice in Paris was set on fire just after midday mass on Sunday, Le Parisien reported, although no one was injured. Police are still investigating the attack, which firefighters have confidently attributed to arson. Built in the 17th century, St. Sulpice houses three works by the Romantic painter Eugene de la Croix, and was used in the movie adaptation of The Da Vinci Code, by Dan Brown.

Letters support claim Assange would not face death penalty

Letters support claim Assange would not face death penalty --UK foreign secretaries wrote to assure Ecuador president over WikiLeaks founder's extradition | 15 April 2019 | Ecuador's president, Lenín Moreno, was assured by two British foreign secretaries that Julian Assange would not be extradited to a country where he could face the death penalty, according to letters seen by the Guardian. Letters signed by the foreign secretary, Jeremy Hunt, and his predecessor Boris Johnson, dated 7 March 2018 and 10 August 2018 respectively, confirm a person cannot be extradited if they could face the death penalty, according to British legislation. The letters appear to back up Moreno’s claim that he had written undertakings from Britain that Assange’s fundamental rights would be respected in his first interview with English-speaking media since the WikiLeaks founder was ejected from the embassy.

On Wednesday, the House and Senate, solely with Republican votes, passed the latest version of the so-called "Heartbeat Bill," which would all but ban an abortion once a fetal heartbeat can be detected.

Rising Buttigieg formally launches presidential campaign | 14 April 2019 | Surging in early primary polls, Democrat Pete Buttigieg officially kicked off his presidential bid on Sunday, starting a new phase of the campaign as one of the main candidates to watch just three months after he launched an exploratory committee to little fanfare.

Brussels Becomes First Major City to Halt 5G Due to Health Effects

Brussels Becomes First Major City to Halt 5G Due to Health Effects | 31 March 2019 | Great news. A Belgian government minister has announced that Brussels is halting its 5G plans -- at least for now -- due to concerns about health effects. The statement was made by Céline Fremault, the Minister of the Government of the Brussels-Capital Region, responsible for Housing, Quality of Life, Environment and Energy [from an interview last Friday, with L'Echo]. Ms. Fremault accurately identified that a 5G pilot project is not compatible with Belgian radiation safety standards (9 V/m, or 95 mW/m2 according to this online converter), and stated that she does not intend to make an exception. (In the Building Biology guidelines, the threshold for extreme concern is 1 mW/m2. However, many government agencies still only consider thermal effects, instead of the cumulative body of thousands of peer-reviewed scientific studies.)
