Russian, foreign mercenaries enter Sharara oil field
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] Libya's National Oil Corporation (NOC) said on Friday Russian and other foreign mercenaries had entered the Sharara oilfield on Thursday to block the resumption of energy exports after a months-long blockade by eastern-based forces.

Most of Libya's main oilfields are under the control of the eastern-based Libyan National Army (LNA), which has fought alongside Russian mercenaries according to the United Nations
...boodling on the grand scale...
The NOC, which attempted to restart production at Sharara this month after battle lines shifted, is based in Tripoli
...a confusing city, one end of which is located in Lebanon and the other end of which is the capital of Libya. Its chief distinction is being mentioned in the Marine Hymn...
, seat of the internationally recognised Government of National Accord (GNA), which financially relies on oil exports.

Britain
ISIS militant sentenced to nine years in UK for inciting violence in Germany
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] An ISIS turban who encouraged mass murder in Germany has been sentenced to at least nine years in prison in Britannia.

Fatah Abdullah, 35, had been charged under Britannia’s terrorism laws with encouraging another person to plow a car into crowds, attack people with a meat cleaver and detonate bombs, "with the aim of killing and/or causing serious injury."

The incitement took place between April 9 and Dec. 11, 2018.

Abdullah, who was born in Iran
...a theocratic Shiite state divided among the Medes, the Persians, and the (Arab) Elamites. Formerly a fairly civilized nation ruled by a Shah, it became a victim of Islamic revolution in 1979. The nation is today noted for spontaneously taking over other countries' embassies, maintaining whorehouses run by clergymen, involvement in international drug trafficking, and financing sock puppet militias to extend the regime's influence. The word Iran is a cognate form of Aryan. The abbreviation IRGC is the same idea as Stürmabteilung (or SA). The term Supreme Guide is a the modern version form of either Duce or Führer or maybe both. They hate Jews Zionists Jews. Their economy is based on the production of oil and vitriol...
but was living in the northern English city of Newcastle after receiving asylum, was arrested after a joint inestigation by British and German police.

He pleaded guilty in March to inciting terrorism overseas and engaging in conduct in preparation to assist others to commit terrorist acts.

#10  grom, so have I. There's a fantasy of "arming up and holing up" while the rest of the world goes to hell. It isn't feasible for very many of us.

Wisconsin violence erupted over arrest of activist with felony conviction, history of controversial social media posts
[FoxNews] The man whose Tuesday arrest in Wisconsin sparked a violent riot that culminated in the beating of a state lawmaker boasts a lengthy criminal record and appears to have a history of controversial social media posts.

Devonere Johnson, who also goes by Yeshua Musa, was captured on video entering a restaurant in Madison carrying a bat, using profanities and speaking through a bull horn after what appeared to be a dispute with a white man over racism, according to police reports cited by Madison.com.

He was arrested outside of the restaurant for disorderly conduct while armed, resisting arrest and attempting to flee and probation violation. The Madison Police Department posted videos of the conduct that led his arrest on YouTube.

Johnson was briefly treated at a hospital for cuts and scrapes sustained during his confrontation with police. Dane County court records show he was on probation at the time of his arrest.

Attorney information for Johnson's arrest was not available as of Friday morning.

Protests calling for Johnson’s release soon spiraled into vandalism and violence during which vandals pulled down two statues – one of an anti-slavery Union defender and another of Lady Forward who represents progress. Several protesters also allegedly beat a Democratic state senator who was filming the protests while heading into the capitol building.


Local media reports show Johnson, 28, is no stranger to law enforcement.

While Johnson has no open cases against him, he has been convicted or pleaded guilty at least three times, including for felony theft, according to the court records and the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Johnson's felony theft charge from 2016 involved him and three others holding two men they had planned to buy cellphones from at gunpoint, stealing their phones and shooting at them, according to the Journal Sentinel. A judge dismissed the armed robbery charge and he was sentenced to five years of probation.

Johnson was also acquitted of felony first-degree assault charges in 2015 in a shooting that allegedly left a Minnesota bus passenger paralyzed, according to the Star Tribune.

The violence was sparked by a run-in between Johnson and a man identified only as “L.G.,” who had a previous relationship with Johnson’s girlfriend, the Tribune reported in 2015.

The pair began to fight and a witness told police L.G. at one point placed Johnson in a headlock, the report states. Johnson allegedly told L.G. to stop, and said, “Let me go or I'm going to shoot you,” according to a witness cited by the Tribune. The dispute, and Johnson’s alleged threats, were caught on video.

L.G. was reportedly shot in the neck and was paralyzed from his neck down. A jury later acquitted Johnson.

Several business owners in the area who didn't want to be named told Chanel 3000 Johnson had been harassing them for days.

Johnson appears to be very active on Facebook under the name Yeshua Musa. An account that bears the name and Johnson's photo has frequently posted images of himself and others protesting and sharing details about events.

Thug Who Toppled Abolitionist Statue Had Previously Looted $10K in Jewelry
[FrontPage] Authorities have formally charged a Madison man accused of both joining a crowd of people who broke into Goodman’s Jewelers and stealing $10,000 worth of jewelry amid looting in late May, as well as one of the people accused of tearing down the Hans Christian Heg statue and tossing it into Lake Monona earlier this week.

The allegations against Kelsey D. Nelson were detailed in two criminal complaints released Friday. Nelson, 30, will be in Dane County Court for his preliminary hearing on July 2. If convicted, Nelson could face 12 years in prison and upwards of $25,000 in fines.

Minneapolis City Council approves measure to abolish police force
[NYPOST] The Minneapolis City Council on Friday unanimously approved a measure to abolish the city’s police department — a radical proposal amid nationwide efforts by activists to defund local law enforcement agencies.

The 12-0 vote will not automatically dismantle the department, but is a first step in a long legislative process that will ultimately need popular support by city residents in a November election.

The proposal gained popularity among city council members amid widespread protests and riots in the city following the killing of George Floyd by a city police officer last month.

#2  Every police officer should take the same day or two
off. And be sure to advertise it extensively beforehand so everyone knows.

#3  Nah. They need to quarantine themselves because they're worried they've been exposed to COVID-19.

#4  The city council did not vote to eliminate the police. They voted in a suicide pact for the city and its citizens.

#6  Minneapolis: How to replicate Ur of the Chaldees.
Posted by: b || 06/27/2020 7:16 Comments || Top||

#7  It's all the failed foundation of socialism. The founding fathers understood men were fallen, given to evil, and thus set up a system of government that took that into account. The socialist believe man is inherently just a victim of this environment and once give the basics of life will lead a noble life, aka utopia. The reason socialists seek to destroy history is to ignore 4,000 years of actual human behavior that validates the view of the other side. Live in a fantasy, die in a reality.
