#2  I wouldn't give Mexico another penny in foreign aid until they fix their damn sewer. But then, I probably wouldn't give it to them anyway. Maybe we could dig a canal to reroute all that sewage back into the streets of Tijuana.

I remember a long, long time ago surfing at Imperial Beach, jogging all the way to the border and body surfing in the shore break there, wading across the Tijuana River. IB was never the nicest beach. The City of Imperial Beach was never the nicest city, not like affluent Coronado to its north. But at least back then you could go in the water without getting sick. Wouldn't go anywhere near it now.

Subway rider lied about anti-gay attack, was actually aggressor: cops
“Set up another F-17 article, Joe. We’ll fill in the details later.”
[NYPOST] A Manhattan straphanger who claimed to have been attacked by two men yelling gay slurs was actually the one doing the attacking, according to police.

Cops say the 25-year-old, who has not been identified, set upon the two men at the Chambers St. station in Tribeca while on an uptown A train.

They had gotten into a verbal altercation before things got physical, the young man originally alleged.

Police interviewed multiple people, however, who witnessed the incident and said the straphanger was the aggressor. Video obtained by police allegedly shows him spitting at subway riders when the suspects-turned-victims step in and try to stop him.

Cops believe the man was drunk and that no gay slurs were ever made. He suffered a laceration to his head while being subdued, according to officials.

Police don’t plan to file any charges.

Watch Surfside Beach, SC, PD chase, bust accused motorcycle thieves
[ABC 15 News] Surfside Beach police say they caught two motorcycle thieves red-handed early Memorial Day.

An officer was on patrol Monday morning when he saw an unsecured motorcycle in the bed of a truck. The truck was leaving a residential area around 3:50.

The officer attempted a traffic stop, but the truck fled, police say, leading to a pursuit into an apartment complex off 5th Avenue North Extension, where one still-undetermined person jumped from the truck and fled on foot. The truck crashed a few minutes later in a ditch on Azalea Drive. At that point, police say Jamieson Tyrese Wright, 30, of Georgetown, and Justin Marquis Castle, 32, of Georgetown, both fled on foot.
Audio comes in at about the 1:00 minute mark.

Large Tornado Hits Dayton Ohio
A 'large and dangerous' tornado has wreaked havoc in western Ohio after tearing through and causing widespread damage and injuries.

The destructive tornado first touched down in the city of Trotwood, just outside Dayton, at about 11pm on Monday night before moving through the state.

The National Weather Service described the tornado as 'extremely dangerous' and warned residents to remain in their shelters as it tore through the heavily populated area.

'This is a life threatening situation,' the NWS warned in a grave tweet.

#9  From the Cincinnati link in my early morning comment, which was updated 40 minutes ago:

Governor Mike DeWine declared a state of emergency for the three affected counties [Greene, Mercer and Montgomery], allowing them access to disaster relief funding and personnel from the Ohio Emergency Management Agency. President Donald Trump tweeted his well-wishes late Tuesday afternoon.

One person, 81-year-old Melvin Dale Hannah, died when a tornado flung a parked car through the walls of his Celina home. Hundreds more were injured.

The cities of Celina, Circleville and Trotwood — about 70, 76 and 10 miles from Dayton, respectively — were among the hardest-hit.

The response would require a "multi-day restoration effort," Dayton Power & Light said in an early morning tweet. At about 12:15 p.m. the company said 70,000 customers have been impacted, and 360 out-of-state crew members were coming to the area to assist.

The city of Dayton urged residents to conserve water after the storms cut power to water plants and pump stations, and issued a boil advisory for all Dayton and Montgomery County water customers. This does not impact jurisdictions with separate systems, said Dayton City Manager Shelley Dickstein.

On Facebook I saw that Dayton-area friends are posting that they are available to help with the clean up, they just need to be pointed at those in need. So people aren’t waiting for the professionals to handle things for them.

Malaysia's last male Sumatran rhino dies
[DAWN] Malaysia's last surviving male Sumatran rhino died on Monday, wildlife officials said, leaving behind only one female in the country and pushing the critically-endangered species closer to extinction.
Rhinos are extinct in the Americas too.
Once found as far away as eastern India and throughout Malaysia, the Sumatran rhino has been almost wiped out, with fewer than 80 left, according to the World Wildlife Fund.
It's all our fault.
Only a handful of the creatures remain in the wilds of Indonesia.
We have people hunting them down though.
Sabah Wildlife Department director Augustine Tuuga said the Malaysian male, Tam, had lived in a nature reserve on Borneo island.
The CIA had been watching him for some time.
The cause of the animal's death was not immediately clear, but previous media reports have suggested it was suffering from kidney and liver problems.
Trump had him shot full of polonium.

Springfield Armory Partners With Hillsdale College
[NRA Shooting Illustrated] Springfield Armory announced a partnership with Hillsdale College, a private, liberal-arts school in Hillsdale, MI, with a focus on equipping students with an understanding of the U.S. Constitution, individual rights and the concept of self-government.

As part of its curriculum, Hillsdale College offers students an opportunity to learn the fundamentals of firearm-handling and safety, as well as participate in the shooting sports, particularly in the form of its competitive shotgun and competition-pistol teams.

"When we were approached by Hillsdale College to sponsor their shooting team, you know, it was just an absolute, enthusiastic ’Yes!’" said Dennis Reese, CEO of Springfield Armory. "To me, it is exactly the kind of program that Springfield Armory is really interested in, and we outfitted the entire team with XD(M)s and 1911s."

Man kills mother, father files murder case
[Dhaka Tribune] A man has reportedly killed his mother over a trivial issue of shopping allowance ahead of Eid-ul-Fitr, at Tanore upazila.

The distraught father, Samjat Haji, filed a murder case against his son, Ekramul Haque, 28, for murdering Rahima Begum, 70, of Tanore upazila's Gaurangapur village on Monday.

Saiful Islam, officer-in-charge (investigations) of Tanore upazila's Mundumala Police Investigations Centre, said the murder stemmed from a case of shopping allowance, as Samjat's three sons wanted to go shopping for Eid Sunday afternoon.

When Rahima gave Tk3,000 to her youngest son Amirul, her elder sons Abdul and Ekramul demanded more money as they were older.

After the argument escalated, Ekramul, who had a wooden stick next to him, struck his mother behind her neck, after which she collapsed.

Their neighbours overheard the scuffle and entered the house, after which they rushed Rahima to Rajshahi Medical College, where the doctors pronounced her dead on arrival.

OC Saiful also said the neighbours brought her body back to her house, but police took it back on Sunday evening for an appointment with Dr. Quincy.

Ekramul remains absconding, while the two other sons were released by the police soon after a short interrogation.

Caribbean-Latin America
Violence in multiple Brazil prisons leave over 55 dead: official
[Aljazeera] More than 55 inmates have been found dead over the last two days in separate prisons in northern Brazil, authorities said on Monday.

The majority of the victims was found in the Antonio Trindade Penal Institute near Manaus, the capital of Amazonas state, where the facilities in question are located.

The Amazonas state prison agency said the prisoners found dead on Monday all showed signs of asphyxia.

The federal government said it was sending reinforcements to boost security in the state's prisons.

Later on Monday, a statement from the Amazonas state penitentiary department revised the number of deaths to 40 from an earlier 42 and said authorities had regained control of the four prisons. No other details were provided.

Monday's clashes took place a day after 15 inmates were killed during riots at Manaus' Anisio Jobim Prison Complex, authorities said.

Those clashes broke out about 11:00am (15:00 GMT) during visiting hours at the facility, located about 28km from Manaus.

"It was a fight between the inmates. There had never been deaths during the visits," Colonel Marcos Vinicius Almeida told a news conference on Sunday.

#2  I was in this area of Brazil with a Brazilian family of 7 sisters. We were at a festival and noticed a bad guy casing one of the sisters and her boy friend who were seperated from the rest of us in the crowd and I started to go over to where they were but three of the sisters immediately cut me off and the other three went over and grabbed sister number 7 and the entire family left the festival immediately. I asked the one who spoke English why did everyone leave and she asked did you not see the rest of the suspects dangerous gang in tbe crowd ready to move in to assist him if there was confrontation? I had dangerously misunderstood the situation in this third world area that the 7 Brazilian sisters knew very well. This was an upper class family. They did not interact with the general third world population around tbem at all. It was just too dangerous in that Amazon part of Brazil.

SC makes history by hearing case at Karachi registry via e-Court system
[DAWN] The Supreme Court (SC) on Monday, for the first time in the judicial history of Pakistain, began hearing cases via e-Court ‐ a system based on video-link connectivity, the apex court announced in a blurb.

"Today, a three-member bench headed by Chief Justice Asif Saeed Khosa and comprising Justice Sardar Tariq Masood and Justice Mazhar Alam Khan Miankhel formally initiated the proceedings of cases through the e-Court system at principal seat Islamabad and the SC Bloody Karachi
...formerly the capital of Pakistain, now merely its most important port and financial center. It is among the largest cities in the world, with a population of 18 million, most of whom hate each other and many of whom are armed and dangerous...
registry," read the blurb.

"The advocates of Karachi, whose cases were fixed for hearing at the SC Karachi registry, argued their cases through a video-link and the bench at principal seat heard and decided the cases."

The chief justice, while hearing the first case through the technology, remarked that a big milestone had been achieved in the judicial history of Pakistain.

"The facility will benefit lawyers and litigants to save them time and money," the apex court said.

Jurists are of the view that by enhancing access to the apex court’s principal seat, the e-Court facility will discourage adjournments and encourage the legal fraternity to plead their cases without delays.

Iran shuts down church, removes cross
[Jpost] Iranian intelligence shut down a Presbyterian church and removed its cross from the bell tower, the Assyrian International News Agency (AINA) announced Sunday, reported Radio Farda.

The church was located in the city of Tabriz in northwestern Iran and it belonged to the Assyrian community.

According to the report, the building was confiscated by the Revolutionary Court in 2011, but its members had been able to continue to use it until earlier this month.

"Intelligence agents stormed the 100-year-old church, officially recognized as a national heritage site in Iran, on Thursday, May 9, changed all the locks, tore down the cross from the church tower, and ordered the churchwarden to leave," Article 18, a non-profit organization based in London announced. The group's stated goal is the protection and promotion of religious freedom in Iran.

Eiko, the state agency responsible for the raid together with the Ministry of Intelligence, is under the direct control of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

According to the report, the congregants were left in shock and have not been allowed to hold services in the building since the raid.

Before the 1979 Islamic Revolution, the Assyrian community in Iran totaled approximately 200,000 people, Radio Farda noted.

ars longa, vita brevis...
since then many have fled and in 2015 only 32,000 Assyrians were left in the country, mostly in Tehran.

"Many churches owned by Protestants have been confiscated," explained Article18’s advocacy director, Mansour Borji.

Home Front: Culture Wars
Racial equity in NYC schools
h/t Instapundit
The sad saga of New York City schools gets even ... "better" as news from one of its "implicit bias" workshops indicates that educators are taught to favor black children over white ‐ despite their socioeconomic status.

The city has contracted so-called "diversity experts" to the tune of almost $1 million, and faces an imminent lawsuit alleging school chancellor Richard Carranza has created an atmosphere that is "hostile toward whites."

Last week, the New York Post reported that "diversity" seminars had taught that the foundations of Western Civilization are examples of "white supremacy"; now the Post details how workshop leaders have framed the term "equity":

"If I had a poor white male student and I had a middle-class black boy, I would actually put my equitable strategies and interventions into that middle class black boy because over the course of his lifetime he will have less access and less opportunities than that poor white boy." So said Darnisa Amante, founder of "DEEP" ‐ the Disruptive Equity Education Project.

White people keep citing the low percentage of the irreconcilable black population, taking solace in the numbers. They forget that government means 'rule of the few over the rest'. There's a significant part of that minor colored population that has hijacked so much already and continues its collective quest to literally remove whites from all power. I call them Wakandans.

Darnisa Amante is another Wakandan.

Gun Control Lobbyist Arrested for Assault, Domestic Violence, False Imprisonment
[PJMedia] Robert Blaisdell, managing partner for Demers, Blaisdell & Parsol Inc. and a lobbyist for Michael Bloomberg's "Everytown" gun control group, was arrested earlier in May on a whole host of charges in Manchester, New Hampshire. He was charged on domestic violence-related crimes of simple assault, false imprisonment, and criminal mischief. Police say Blaisdell "knowingly" confined a family member, trapping his victim by "holding the laundry room door closed over a period of several minutes." Police claim that Blaisdell also stepped on the person's hand during the incident, and also allegedly destroyed their cellphone.

Patch.com calls him "a well-known fixture" at the Concord statehouse, and that his recent clients include NH Troopers Association, NH Police Association, NH Court Reporters Association, Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund, Walmart, Bank of America, and FedEx. And, of course, Bloomberg's nationwide Everytown for Gun Safety group has a $36 million dollar annual budget according to its most recent filing, and includes well-known subsidiaries Moms Demand Action and Students Demand Action.

#2  almost as if a column of disease-ridden third-world invaders and a plethora of unvaccinated kids due to internet doctor Moms is.... a perfect storm

#3  Gee, I wonder where they're coming in.

#4  So, why aren't the vaccinations protecting those who have them? If they were, then I would assume this wouldn't be an issue at all.

#5  Usually they do, lbis. This is coming from those yahoos that refuse to vaccinate. We lose the herd immunity if too many people are susceptible to the disease.

#6  And, in the case of Pertussis, what was once thought a lifetime shot needs a booster, they've now found. Had to get it with my last Tetanus booster

#7  I say this is unconstitutional. The MMR vaccine is made with porcine gelatin and the unvaccinated children in Hasidic families. And vaccinations are required for all school children, so why are migrants & UAM relocated all over the country without them??? Or is this another case of CF & the Gates Foundation purchasing diluted or ineffective vaccines made overseas, as in HIV treatment in Africa?

That doesn’t matter — the principle laid down by the rabbis around the time of the Maccabees is that anything is not only permitted but required if necessary to save a life. (The issue at that time was whether or not soldiers could fight, which counts as doing work, if attacked on the Sabbath.) It is a mitzvah, which so often is translated as a good deed, but the Jewish meaning is that it is required behaviour, not optional. Thus it is required to vaccinate one’s children. Additionally, one is required to protect oneself and one’s children in the case of an epidemic, so by a second path of reasoning it is required to vaccinate one’s children. The exception is if the person will be at greater risk from the vaccine due to an impaired immune system.

As the rabbi at the ultra-orthodox Chassidic Chabad.org website writes in answer to exactly the question of unkosher vaccines:

in response to Andrea :
From the perspective of the Jewish laws of Kashrut, what matters is what is ingested orally, hence there is no issue of Kashrut with vaccinations.

Herd immunity only has to do with whether or not a disease can move through a community (herd). If vaccinated people don't get sick, then who cares whether or not something is getting passed around?
