  • Clinton comes out swinging in first Democratic debate

    14/Oct/2015 // 158 Viewers

    US Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton exuded confidence at the first Democratic debate on Tuesday, gaining unexpected support from her main rival, Bernie Sanders, who said voters were “sick of hearing about your damn emails”.
     
    Clinton faced off against her main obstacle to becoming presidential nominee, along with three other Democratic candidates, none of whom are considered a serious threat, in the party's first debate of the 2016 campaign.
     
    Clinton set the pace from the start, tackling her rivals on gun reform and US foreign policy while rejecting further questioning on the email scandal that has so far overshadowed her campaign.

    While Clinton and Sanders dominated the debate with a lively back-and-forth that often seemed to leave the other three candidates frustrated, Sanders offered a leg up to Clinton when he lambasted ongoing inquiries into Clinton’s private email server, saying “enough with the emails”.
     
    While not a serious threat to Clinton, Sanders has been seen as nudging the former secretary of state to the left ahead of the November 2016 election. Asked whether she was a moderate or a progressive, Clinton said: “I am a progressive, but I am a progressive that likes to get things done.”
     
    While amicable and often supportive of each other’s proposals, Clinton and Sanders clashed on themes that will shape the party’s future fight against the Republican party.
     
    On the long-running Syrian conflict that the Obama administration has struggled to tackle, Clinton called for “more of a leadership role” in confronting Russia’s increasing dominance in the country, and proposed examining no-fly zones.
     
    Sanders shot back, arguing that no-fly zones require policing – which he said would mean further involvement in “a quagmire within a quagmire”.
     
    Sanders went on to describe the Iraq war, which Clinton voted in favour of, as “the worst foreign policy blunder in the history of our country”, and ruled out sending US troops to the Middle East in the fight against extremist terror groups in the region.
     
    “War should be the last resort,” Sanders said.
     
    ‘This is not Denmark’
     
    A running theme of the debate was wealth inequality, which Sanders has focused his campaign on.
     
    Defending his “democratic socialist” proposals, Sanders said that if American voters understood what the term meant – that wealth was more fairly distributed and workers were protected by the state – then they would vote for him.
     
    But Clinton said it would be a “big mistake” for the US to turn its back on its capitalist history. “This is not Denmark,” Clinton said, “We’re the United States of America”. Sanders had earlier highlighted Denmark as an example of a fair society.
     
    'CLINTON LOOKED THE MOST PRESIDENTIAL'
     
    The pair also clashed on gun reform, with Clinton arguing that Sanders’ policies would fail to curb increasing gun attacks across the country. Asked whether he was tough enough on the subject, she replied simply: “No, not at all.”
     
    Sanders in turn defended his record and argued for better mental health services and a more robust system to guarantee sufficient background checks for those seeking to buy a firearm.
     
    Clinton was forced to defend shifting positions on international trade and same-sex marriage, which critics say expose her as spineless. “Like most human beings, I do absorb new information, I do look at what’s happening in the world,” Clinton said.
     
    Speaking of last week’s Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement, she said she had hoped the agreement would be "the gold standard," but that she had been disappointed.
     
    Clinton and Sanders were joined at the debate by former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley, former Virginia Senator Jim Webb, and former Governor and Senator Lincoln Chafee, a Republican-turned-independent-turned Democrat from Rhode Island.
     
    Whether Vice President Joe Biden will run remains a looming question for the Democrats, who have been largely united in their support for Clinton. The Republicans, on the other hand, have failed to rally behind one leader, with billionaire Donald Trump leading the race but dividing the party.

  • JUST IN: Day before Wikileaks due to drop Hillary bombshell, something shocking happens

    14/Oct/2016 // 567 Viewers

     

    WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange will not be making the dramatic appearance he promised on Tuesday to reveal what was rumored to be an “October Surprise” — information that could damage the candidacy of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

    However, The Daily Mail reported that Assange will make some sort announcement “via video link to an event in Berlin on Tuesday morning.”

    News that Assange would not be appearing on the balcony of the Ecuadorian embassy in London to release this new information, citing security concerns, came as WikiLeaks shared reports that back in 2010, Clinton discussed using a drone strike to kill Assange.

  • ‘We’ll ring China with missile defense’: Clinton’s plans for the East revealed in Podesta files

    14/Oct/2016 // 429 Viewers

     

    The US could surround China with missiles if Beijing doesn’t agree to Washington's requests to use its influence to disrupt North Korea’s nuclear program, Hillary Clinton apparently said, according to recently leaked emails.

    A document featuring Hillary Clinton's private speech transcripts is among leaked emails belonging to her campaign manager, John Podesta. WikiLeaks has been releasing the emails since last week, with over 10,000 hacked documents published so far.

    Some of them are believed to reveal the Democratic presidential candidate's stance on relations with China.

    "We're going to ring China with missile defense. We're going to put more of our fleet in the area," Clinton apparently said privately in a 2013 speech, when she was head of the US State Department, as quoted by AP.

    The then secretary of state was seemingly not pleased with China's opposition to US and South Korean plans to deploy a missile defense system in the region, said to be a measure against North Korea's nuclear tests.

    Saying that Pyongyang's potential missiles "could actually reach Hawaii and the West Coast theoretically," Clinton told her private audience that she had confronted Chinese officials on the issue.

    "So China, come on. You either control them [North Korea] or we're going to have to defend against them," Clinton was quoted as saying.

    The Democratic candidate's views on another sensitive issue in the region, the South China Sea dispute, have also been revealed in the hacked emails. In private remarks, she apparently criticized Beijing's position and said that after World War Two the US had "as much right" to call the Pacific Ocean the "American Sea."

    "I said, by that argument, you know, the United States should claim all of the Pacific. We liberated it, we defended it. We have as much claim to all of the Pacific. And we could call it the American Sea, and it could go from the West Coast of California all the way to the Philippines," Clinton was quoted as telling her audience in 2013.

    "We have as much right to claim that as you do. I mean, you claim [the South China Sea] based on pottery shards from, you know, some fishing vessel that ran aground in an atoll somewhere," she apparently told her Chinese counterparts while confronting them on the issue during her tenure as the State Department head.

    China's Ministry of Foreign Affairs has not immediately commented on Clinton's remarks, AP reported. Clinton's team has neither confirmed nor denied the validity of the hacked emails.

  • US Imam, Yasir Kazir, declares war on Christianity, urges Muslims to kill Christians, take their property on refusal to convert

    Meet Abu Ammaar Yasir Kazi. He’s not some crazy Imam in the Middle East. He’s a college professor at Rhodes College in Memphis, Tennessee, who was described by New York Times Magazine as “one of the most influential conservative clerics in American Islam.”

    In lectures to students at this American college, he blasts those in his class as being filthy and impure. He then steps up his vitriolic diatribes, by tearing into Christians, where he compares them to feces and urine, saying they are the “most evil of evils.” 

    He then instructs his students that they should engage in jihad and fight all unbelievers until they convert to Islam, and that those who refuse to convert, should have their lives and property taken. “Property” which according to Islam, includes taking women as sex slaves.

  • Democratic VP nominee, Tim Kaine, says Roman Catholic Church may change its opposition to gay marriage

    14/Sep/2016 // 480 Viewers

     


    PARIS, SEPTEMBER 14, 2016: (DGW) TIM KAINE,  predicts that the Roman Catholic Church may change its stance soon and approve gay marriage.

    Kaine, the Democratic vice presidential nominee, who is a devout Catholic, a Senator from Virginia and former Virginia Governor told  the Human Rights Campaign that he had unavoidably had to change his mind on gay marriage because his church may follow suit one day.

    His words: 

    "I think it's going to change because my church also teaches me about a creator who, in the first chapter of Genesis, surveyed the entire world, including mankind, and said, 'It is very good,'" Kaine said. He then recalled Pope Francis' remark that "who am I to judge?" in reference to gay priests.

    "I want to add: Who am I to challenge God for the beautiful diversity of the human family? I think we're supposed to celebrate it, not challenge it," Kaine said.

    While he pledged to fight for increased rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer Americans, Kaine admitted that he had opposed gay marriage until 2005.

    "For a long time while I was battling for LGBT equality, I believed that marriage was something different," he said. Virginia's lieutenant governor when state lawmakers pushed for a constitutional amendment to keep marriage between one man and one woman, he recalled speaking to amendment supporters who said they hoped LGBT people would feel so unwelcome that they would move out of Virginia.

    "When I heard the proponents describe their motivations, it became clearer to me where I should stand on this," he said.

  • American company lost $100 million to email fraud, U.S. says

    15/Apr/2016 // 415 Viewers

     

    NEW YORK/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - An unidentified American company was defrauded last year out of nearly $100 million by individuals who created a fake email address in order to pose as one of its legitimate vendors, U.S. authorities said on Thursday.

    The details of the scheme came as the U.S. government filed a civil forfeiture lawsuit in federal court in Manhattan seeking to recover about $25 million in proceeds derived from the fraud held in at least 20 bank accounts around the world.

    Nearly $74 million has been recovered and returned to the American company, authorities said.

    The case appeared to be the latest, and one of the largest, examples of a "business email compromise," a growing type of cyber scam in which fraudsters target businesses that work with foreign suppliers or regularly perform wire transfers.

    The FBI said in an alert issued to companies last week that businesses had suffered $2.3 billion globally in losses from email wire-transfer scams from October 2013 to February of this year.

    The complaint filed on Thursday "appears to be the largest email scam that I've seen," said Tom Brown, a former Manhattan federal prosecutor who is now managing director of Berkeley Research Group's cyber security practice.

    The scheme at issue in Thursday's lawsuit took place from August to September and was identified after a Cyprus-based bank identified suspicious transfers, authorities said.

    According to the lawsuit, the perpetrators carried out the scam by creating a fake email address that resembled that of one of the company's vendors in Asia.

    The perpetrators then posed as a vendor while communicating with a professional services company that was hired to handle the details and logistics of vendor payments for the American corporation, the lawsuit said.

    The fraud caused the American firm to send $98.9 million meant for the actual vendor to an account at Eurobank Cyprus Ltd, which discovered the fraud, the lawsuit said.

    Eurobank, which did not respond to an email seeking comment, on its own initiative in September restrained nearly $74 million of the funds.

    The remaining $25 million was laundered through other accounts in locations including Cyprus, Latvia, Hungary, Estonia, Lithuania, Slovakia, and Hong Kong, authorities said.

    Foreign governments at the request of U.S. authorities have restrained 20 accounts worldwide that received portions of the remaining stolen funds, which are now the subject of the lawsuit, authorities said.

  • Anti-Muslim attacks occurring in record numbers across US

    15/Dec/2015 // 280 Viewers

    Crimes against Muslims and vandalism at mosques appear to have hit an all-time high in the wake of terrorist attacks in France and California. Mosques are struggling with security, as some have hired armed guards or asked the federal government for help.
    On Sunday, two mosques in Hawthorne, California became the latest in a string of anti-Muslim attacks that are on the rise since a radicalized Muslim couple killed 14 people and injured 21 more at a terrorist attack on a holiday party in San Bernardino.

    “A few of our members went to early morning prayer at about 5 a.m. and they found graffiti on the outside wall and ‘Jesus’ was written on the fence,” Zahid Mian, a member of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Baitus-Salaam Mosque, told the San Bernardino Sun. “As Muslims we don’t really find [the crosses] very offensive, but the act of vandalizing is disturbing.”

    A grenade was found inside the building, as well. Police cordoned off the area, but later determined that the weapon was a plastic replica.

    The Islamic Center of Hawthorne was also vandalized Sunday, with the phrase “Jesus is the way” scrawled on the building.

    On Thursday, a knife-wielding man made threatening comments to a Muslim woman at a car wash in Chino Hills, California. Daniel Senteno, 40, was arrested on suspicion of making criminal threats and brandishing a weapon, but investigators are likely to pursue hate-crime charges in the case, Cindy Bachman, a San Bernardino County sheriff’s spokeswoman, told the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin. Senteno’s bail has been set at $75,000. He remains in custody and is expected to be arraigned this week, Bachman said.

    Record number of anti-Muslim incidents
    So far in 2015 ‒ through December 8 ‒ American mosques and Islamic centers have been the victims of vandalism, harassment and anti-Muslim bigotry at least 63 times this year, according to preliminary data for a study that the Council on American-Islamic Relations provided to CNN. The report was compiled using based on media accounts and reports from the group's regional chapters, Corey Saylor, a CAIR spokesman, said, adding that the number of incidents at mosques is likely higher than has been reported thus far. According to the Justice Department, hate crimes are often drastically under-reported.

    The previous high of 53 such incidents came in 2010, when a controversy arose in New York City over whether or not to build a mosque near“ground zero” of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks, CNN reported.

    There were 17 anti-Muslim incidents at mosques in November alone, most of which were vandalism or harassment, the CAIR study found. On November 13, terrorists in Paris, France carried out coordinated attacks that killed 130 people and injured 368 more. Islamic State (IS, formerly known as ISIS/ISIL) has claimed credit for the attack. The year also began with a terrorist attack in Paris on satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo on January 7, followed by related attacks in the city. The gunmen identified themselves as members of Al-Qaeda’s branch in Yemen.

    At least 14 threats and attacks on Muslims and mosques occurred between December 8 and 12, according to news reports compiled by the Intercept’s Glenn Greenwald. The incidents include arson at a mosque in Coachella, California; a pig’s head found at a mosque in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; the evacuation of the CAIR headquarters in Washington, DC after it received an envelope filled with a suspicious substance; and a Georgia teacher asking a 13-year-old black Muslim student whether she had a bomb in her backpack.

    RT’s own compilation shows that at least 10 total anti-Muslim attacks took place across the US every day between December 5 and 11.

    Late Friday, hours after firefighters were called to a blaze at the Islamic Society of the Coachella Valley in California that was described as a possible “fire-bombing,” Carl James Dial was arrested and charged with multiple felony offenses including: commission of a hate crime, two counts of arson, one count of maliciously setting a fire, and a count of second-degree burglary, the Palm Springs Desert Sun reported. Dial, 23, remained jailed in lieu of $150,000 bail. He is scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday, according to jail records.

    Saylor believes the number of anti-Muslim incidents at mosques plays into the hands of IS.

    "Daesh wants Americans to turn on each other, and with November seeing the highest number of mosque incidents since [CAIR] started keeping data, it seems they are getting their wish," Saylor said, using an alternative name for the IS.

    Stepping up security
    Mosques are increasing security around their buildings, with at least two ‒ one in Phoenix, Arizona and one in Northern Virginia ‒ requesting help from the US Department of Homeland Security, Reuters reported. The All Dulles Area Muslim Society outside of Washington, DC took the step after the security guards they hired quit.

    "Security guards resigned because they were fearful of getting hurt in the backlash" after the San Bernardino attacks, Rizwan Jaka, the society’s chairman, said. "People were concerned."

    "Our fear is at a pretty high level at this time, given the anti-Muslim rhetoric going on," CAIR attorney Maha Sayed told the newswire.

    The East Plano Islamic Center near Dallas, Texas, hired an armed security guard after the Paris attacks, Imam Nadim Bashir told Reuters.

    "We're just trying to ramp up our efforts in the community and get a better name," he said.

    The Islamic Society of Corona-Norco in California has spent $10,000 over the past two weeks to increase security. It is now asking for donations from the congregation to defray that expense, Imam Obair Katchi told Reuters. It has faced increased scrutiny after it was reported that Enrique Marquez Jr., who supplied the two rifles used in the San Bernardino shooting, had once attended the mosque.

    A silver lining for Muslims?
    It’s not all bad news for the Muslim community, however. A Muslim-led fundraiser for the victims of the San Bernardino terrorist attacks blew past its first three goals in days. It has now raised nearly $210,000 from almost 2,000 supporters since December 3, and is closing its campaign overnight on Tuesday, 15 days ahead of schedule, according to its LaunchGood page.

    A high school in Chicago, Illinois is battling Islamophobia with an initiative called ‘Walk a Mile in Her Hijab’, in which non-Muslim girls are encouraged to wear the traditional headscarf to better understand life as a woman in the Muslim faith, the Siasat Daily reported.

    “This event is to hopefully denounce negative stereotypes,”  Vernon Hills High School senior Yasmeen Abdallah, the president of the Muslim Students Association (MSA) and who coordinated the event, said. “You can’t really understand or judge a person and their beliefs until you understand why they do it and what it’s like for them to do what they’re doing.”

    Over a dozen female students have participated, according to the Siasat Daily.

    “I wanted to learn more about the religion, considering my uncle is also Muslim,” Charli Mosley, said, wearing a red hijab.“With more people wearing a hijab around school, it could bring more acceptances to the religion and have more people become more aware.”

  • Muslim woman arrested in US for faking hate attack by DONALD TRUMP fans - BBC reports

    15/Dec/2016 // 757 Viewers

     

    A young Muslim woman who reported being harassed on the New York subway by supporters of US President-elect Donald Trump has been arrested for fabricating the story, officials say.

    Yasmin Seweid, 18, said three men had called her a "terrorist".
    She has been charged with filing a false report and obstructing governmental administration.

    She reportedly later admitted to police she had been out drinking and had made up the story as an excuse.

    The student originally told police the men had told her to "get out of this country" and to "get the f****** hijab off your head!", NBC reports.

    She said they had tried to tear off her headscarf and that no bystanders had intervened during the alleged incident on 1 December. She also said that one of the men had grabbed her bag, breaking the strap.

    "It breaks my heart that so many individuals chose to be bystanders while watching me get harassed verbally and physically by these disgusting pigs," she said on Facebook one day later, according to NBC.
    But officials reportedly got suspicious when they could not find witnesses or any significant video.

    Then, last Friday, the woman was reported missing, in a case that was widely reported on US media. She was found one day later.

    She was arrested on Wednesday and admitted fabricating the story to avoid getting into trouble with her parents.

    Ms Seweid was arraigned at Manhattan Criminal Court, where she appeared without a veil and with her hair shaved. Unnamed sources told the NY Daily News her parents had forced her to cut her hair over the incident.
    Released on Thursday, she faces up to a year in jail for each charge.

    In the days after the election of Mr Trump in November, hundreds of alleged cases of intimidation and abuse were reported in the US. Many of the cases were linked to Trump supporters, a monitoring group said.

  • JUST IN: Jubiliation as Nigeria's Amina Mohammed becomes UN Deputy Secretary General - The Washington Post reports

    15/Dec/2016 // 781 Viewers

    UNITED NATIONS — Antonio Guterres, who takes over as U.N. secretary-general on Jan. 1, announced Thursday that his top team will be all female — led by Amina Mohammed of Nigeria as deputy secretary-general.

    The former Portuguese prime minister and U.N. refugee chief, who has promised to make gender parity a top priority, said Brazilian diplomat Maria Luiza Ribeiro Viotti of Brazil will be his chief of staff and former South Korean diplomat Kyung-wha Kang will take on a new post as special adviser on policy.

    Guterres said he chose the three “highly competent women ... for their strong backgrounds in global affairs, development, diplomacy, human rights and humanitarian action.”

    “These appointments are the foundations of my team, which I will continue to build, respecting my pledges on gender parity and geographical diversity,” Guterres said in a statement.

    Mohammed, a development expert who is currently Nigeria’s environment minister, spearheaded adoption of the U.N.’s global goals for 2030 as Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s special adviser on post-2015 development planning.

    Viotti, a career diplomat who was Brazil’s U.N. ambassador from 2007 to 2011, is currently the under-secretary for Asia and the Pacific in her country’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

    Kang served as U.N. assistant secretary-general for humanitarian affairs before taking her current job heading Guterres’ transition team. She was U.N. deputy high commissioner for human rights from January 2007 to March 2013.

    Guterres was one of 13 candidates vying to succeed Ban, whose second five-year term ends on Dec. 31. He led all six informal polls in the Security Council, which unanimously recommended his selection to the General Assembly. The 193-member world body elected him by acclamation in October, and he was sworn in on Monday.
