Joe Biden calls for an end to violent riots over the George Floyd killing as it's revealed his campaign staff donated to a group that pays bail for Minneapolis protesters
And when Joe speaks people listen.
[DailyMail] Joe Biden is calling for an end to the violent protests in Minneapolis, Minnesota over the killing of George Floyd, but his campaign staffers are also funding bail money to protesters who were arrested in the midst of the riots.

In a statement posted to Medium and sent out to his supporters through a campaign email, Biden demanded demonstrators stop 'burning down communities' in the midst of their protests.

'Protesting such brutality is right and necessary,' the presumed Democratic nominee admitted in the statement. 'It's an utterly American response.'

'But burning down communities and needless destruction is not,' he continued. 'Violence that endangers lives is not. Violence that guts and shutters businesses that serve the community is not.'

Biden's comments calling for an end to the violence, which has broken out all over the country, comes as it was revealed that at least 13 of his campaign staff have donated to the Minnesota Freedom Fund, which helps pay the bail fees of those arrested in the city.

Reuters confirmed that 13 of the candidate's staff advertised their donations on Twitter.

In their Twitter posts, Biden's staff called attention to U.S. inequities based on race and income.

'It is up to everyone to fight injustice,' Colleen May, who identified herself as an campaign organizer for Biden in South Carolina, Wisconsin and Florida, said in a Twitter post.

She included an image of her receipt from donating $50 to the Minnesota Freedom Fund.

The fund specifically opposes the practice of cash bail, or making people pay to avoid pre-trial imprisonment, and uses donations to pay bail fees in Minneapolis.

Related: Minnesota Freedom Fund Raises $20 Million In 4 Days Amid George Floyd Protests . Vox adds:
The origins of the campaign are unclear, but one of the earliest accounts to tweet about the fund was activist AntiFash Gordon. It’s grown from there, with thousands of tweets promoting the fund and its cause as a way of assisting the people protesting the death of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis Police Department. The fund and its mission to reform the cash bail system aren’t just important for these protests; it’s a way to help reform an aspect of the American criminal justice system that is fundamentally unfair to lower-income people, and goes against its very principles to do so.

The Minnesota Freedom Fund began in 2016. It posts small cash bails for people who otherwise couldn’t afford them. According to the fund’s executive director, Tonja Honsey, its beneficiaries only need an average of $150 to secure their pre-trial release.

Trump was just re-elected: Dems admit that MN now lost; other blue states are in play for November
Moved to Page 2: WoT Politics/Background, Lurid Crime Tales ro cluster with the rest of the Antifa Riot articles.

—trailing wife at 2:30 p.m. EDT
[Politico] The forces unleashed by George Floyd’s death in police custody are already rattling Minnesota — and presidential — politics.

Within Minnesota, there are already discussions about the potential impact on several competitive congressional races. Sen. Amy Klobuchar’s history as a local prosecutor is suddenly under heightened scrutiny, leading to widespread speculation that the events were likely to dim her prospects of becoming Joe Biden’s vice presidential nominee.

Outside the state, the president’s caustic remarks about protesters and the mayor of Minneapolis quickly underscored the political dimensions of the unrest, and the likelihood that it would become the next cultural wedge issue — another point of contention in the urban-rural divide that stands to define the November election.

Mike Erlandson, a former chairman of the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer Labor Party, said he watched with his 15-year-old daughter in Minnesota this week as a man spray-painted on a wall, “F--k the white people from the suburbs.”

“I do think that, particularly if this continues, the [congressional] districts like Dean Phillips’ district or Angie Craig’s district that right now I would say are relatively safe for the Democratic incumbent, could be very much in play,” he said. “Both of those districts will be decided in large part by suburban women voters, and it would be hard for me to imagine those people aren’t watching this scared, like everybody else, for their family and for their children.”

Minnesota is not critical to Trump’s reelection prospects. But it is one of the few offensive opportunities he has to win a state he lost in 2016, and he has invested heavily there.

Though a Star Tribune/MPR News/KARE 11 poll last weekend showed Trump lagging behind Biden by 5 percentage points, he had improved his standing significantly from October, when he was down 12 percentage points, and he is beating Biden in Minnesota’s rural areas and with men.

Even a marginal shift in the electorate in Minnesota could prove significant, not only in the presidential race, but in several House contests there. There are Phillips and Craig, two first-term Democratic representatives from suburban districts. But in rural, western Minnesota, House Agriculture Chairman Collin Peterson, a Democrat, is attempting to hang onto a seat that has become increasingly conservative in recent years — every county in his district voted for Trump, many by landslide margins.

This week, Republicans in Minnesota pounced on Tim Walz, the Democratic governor, and Frey, the Minneapolis mayor. Days of protests saw boarded-up storefronts and the closure of public transportation systems in the area. On Thursday, protesters set fire to the 3rd Precinct Minneapolis police station.

#6  #5 Agreed.

We're still five months from Election Day.

Lots can happen, including a dynamic where we go from properly blaming the left, to people (and let's be honest here, especially women voters) saying:

"Well, if it weren't for the tone of Trump's tweets and the coarsening of public discourse, maybe this wouldn't have happened. Let the healing begin with (Name of Dem nominee here)"

After living through the Obama era and the Dem resurgence in the House, I'm not willing to dismiss just how dumb the electorate can be.

And that's not even mentioning how much help they'll get from squeamish GOPers who long to return to the good old days of polite, ineffectual "opposition".

Africa North
US considers sending `training' unit to Tunisia amid North Africa tensions
[AlAhram] The United States said it is considering deploying a Security Force Assistance Brigade in Tunisia for training, as part of its assistance program with the North Africa country, amid concern over Russian activity in Libya.

Libya's civil war has drawn in regional and global powers, prompting what the United Nations
...boodling on the grand scale...
has called a huge influx of weapons and fighters into the region, in violation of an arms embargo.

"As Russia continues to fan the flames of the Libyan conflict, regional security in North Africa is a heightened concern," the U.S. Africa Command said in a statement on Friday.

"We’re looking at new ways to address mutual security concerns with Tunisia, including the use of our Security Force Assistance Brigade."

It later said the Brigade refers to a small training unit as part of military assistance and no way implies combat military forces.

Russian military personnel have delivered 14 MiG 29 and Su-24 fighter jets to the Libyan National Army's (LNA) Jufra air base, the U.S. military said on Wednesday, despite denials by the LNA and a Russian member of parliament.

In a statement, Tunisia's defense ministry said the U.S. was a main partner in the effort to build its army's operational capability.

#3  This makes no sense. In October 2019 the Ennahda Party (an arm of the Muslim Brotherhood whose leader is the committed Islamist Rachid Ghannouchi) gained a plurality of votes and seats in the 217 member Assembly. In fact, no Tunisian party, even a coalition that makes up the nation's leadership could be considered a dependable ally. This is France's backyard and Pompeo should be wise enough to 'leave it be.'

Military researcher reveals truth about rumors claiming Egypt sunk Turkish frigate off Libyan coast
[ALMASDARNEWS] The Egyptian military researcher, Mohammad al-Kinani, stressed that what is being circulated on social media on the sinking of a Ottoman Turkish frigate called "Murad Bey" off the Libyan coast, is completely wrong and detailed.

He pointed out that the video accompanying this false news pertains to training exercises for launching anti-ship missiles in which an old ship that has been taken out of service and used as a target for marine gunships is used, and the training is called "SINKEX" by the U.S. Navy.

The Egyptian researcher pointed out that there is no Ottoman Turkish frigate bearing the name "Murad Bey" whatever its category is, not even any ship or submarine serving the entire Ottoman Turkish Navybearing this name.

He continued: "The Ottoman Turkish navy is legally present in Libyan economic waters as part of the operation of the sea guard carried out by NATO
...the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. A cautionary tale of cost-benefit analysis....
since 2016 in the eastern Mediterranean to counter smuggling and illegal immigration and combating terrorism as a result of the deteriorating conditions in Libya, which are represented by the United States, La Belle France, Italia Greece, and of course the Ottoman Turkish navy itself, which took advantage of that participation in providing cover and insurance for the marine supply and support of the al-Wefaq government with arms and equipment beginning in the year 2020."

Earlier in the week, a video was being circulated on social media alleging that a Ottoman Turkish frigate came under attack by the Egyptian Navy.

Rumors began to circulate that this attack was carried out off the coast of Libya, with some claiming the Egyptian Navy was sinking a Ottoman Turkish frigate carrying weapons to the North African nation.

Suspects in UK migrant truck tragedy charged in France
[AlAhram] Thirteen suspects arrested by French police over the deaths of 39 Vietnamese migrants colonists in a refrigerated lorry in Britannia have been charged with people trafficking, a judicial source said Saturday.

Six of the group -- mainly Vietnamese and Frenchies -- were held on Tuesday in the Gay Paree region and have also been charged with manslaughter after the alleged key figure in a ring of smugglers was caught in Germany.

Thirteen people were also arrested in Belgium the same day in an international police operation.

The migrants colonists -- 31 men and eight women -- were found dead in the truck in an industrial zone east of London in October 2019.

The driver of the lorry has already admitted manslaughter but Tuesday's swoop targeted the smugglers suspected of organising the migrants colonists' journey from Asia.

The suspect arrested in Germany's Upper Rhine region is a 29-year-old man nicknamed "The Bald Duke," sources told AFP.

"He could be the head of the network on the French side," a source close to the investigation said.

But the man's nationality was not revealed.

The 13 indicted in La Belle France also face charges of membership of a criminal organization and all but one was put in jug.

Eleven of the 13 suspects in Belgium have already been charged by a judge in Bruges with people trafficking, membership of a criminal organization and fraud, according to Belgian prosecutors

The investigation found that the migrants colonists who died were loaded into the truck in northern La Belle France, and that the network continued to operate even after the tragedy, charging up to 20,000 euros to cross from La Belle France to Britannia.

Investigation sources told AFP the group caught in La Belle France was believed to have housed the migrants colonists and then sent them from Gay Paree to the north by taxi.

The driver of the lorry, Maurice Robinson from Northern Ireland, last month pleaded guilty to manslaughter over the 39 deaths.

Four other men are on trial in London over the tragedy, while another man, Ronan Hughes, is facing extradition from Ireland to Britannia on 39 counts of manslaughter and one of conspiracy to commit unlawful immigration.

Turkey, Pakistan, Malaysia and Qatar form troubling new alliance
[Jpost] This emergent alliance is a reflection of a shift in power in the Islamic world away from its traditional Arab center.

The name of runaway Indian Salafi Islamist preacher Zakir Naik
Indian Islamic preacher, founder and president of the Islamic Research Foundation, which doesn't rely very heavily on the scientific method. He is also the founder of the oxymoronic Peace TV channel through which he reaches 200 million viewers. He has been called an authority on comparative religion and the most influential Salafi ideologue in India, though usually by himself. Before becoming a public speaker, he trained as a physician. His preaching is currently banned in India, Bangladesh, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Antarctica. He is currently holed up in Malaysia, where he's not banned...
is little known in the West. Naik, founder of the Mumbai-based Islamic Research Foundation, is currently being pursued by the Indian authorities on charges of money laundering and hate speech.

The units of the Palestinian Authority Security Forces – background
Long enough to merit a leisurely Sunday read with your preferred relaxing or stimulating beverage of choice, dear Reader. You can’t follow the game if you don’t know the players, so here you go.
[Jpost] With the security coordination between Israel and the Paleostinian Authority in doubt, the focus now is on the Paleostinian security forces

Paleostinian Authority President the ineffectual Mahmoud Abbas
...aka Abu Mazen, a graduate of the prestigious unaccredited Patrice Lumumba University in Moscow with a doctorate in Holocaust Denial. While no Yasser Arafat, he has his own brand of evil, just a little more lowercase....
has threatened to cancel all agreements with Israel and the US and to cut all security coordination, as well. This puts the focus on the different types of Paleostinian security units and their duties.

Weapons and Ideology: Files Reveal How China Armed and Trained the Palestinians
From 2019, but still interesting as deep historical background, especially for those interested in the Cold War. Herewith the key bits:
[Ha’aretz] Chairman Mao identified the Paleostinian cause as an important way of combating imperialism in the Middle East. Documents from the 1960s show how far China went to support the guerrilla groups’ armed struggle

In the early 1980s, Israeli forces stormed several Paleostine Liberation Organization command posts in southern Leb
...an Iranian colony situated on the eastern Mediterranean, conveniently adjacent to Israel. Formerly inhabited by hardy Phoenecian traders, its official language is now Arabic, with the usual unpleasant side effects. The Leb civil war, between 1975 and 1990, lasted a little over 145 years and produced 120,000 fatalities. The average length of a ceasefire was measured in seconds. The Lebs maintain a precarious sectarian balance among Shiites, Sunnis, and about a dozeen flavors of Christians. It is the home of Hezbollah, which periodically starts a war with the Zionist Entity, gets Beirut pounded to rubble, and then declares victory and has a parade. The Lebs have the curious habit of periodically murdering their heads of state or prime ministers...
, seizing a wide array of documents detailing various military operations. Among the papers were letters orchestrating the PLO’s dispatch of officers to East Germany, Yugoslavia, Vietnam, Pakistain, India, North Korea
