>Muslim youth take initiative to guard churches as Easter celebrated


>AMMAN — After the attacks on two churches in Egypt last week, Muslim Jordanian youth launched an initiative to protect churches all over the Kingdom on Easter Sunday, in an act of solidarity, they said.

>Daesh claimed responsibility for the attacks on two Coptic churches in Egypt’s Tanta and Alexandria on Palm Sunday, which killed around 44 and injured more than 100 worshippers, many of whom were children.

>Kazem Kharabsheh wrote: “On Sunday, our Christian brothers and sisters will be in churches [performing] religious [rituals], [and] extremists [are] threatening our national security… My Muslim friends and I will be in Balqa Governorate, protecting its churches and people.”

>There have been no direct threats by terrorists to attack churches in Jordan, although Daesh has been repeatedly issuing statements of threats against the Kingdom’s security.

>Another Balqa resident, Fayez Ruqeidi, added the vigilante act is meant to “underline the unity of Jordanians and to give everyone the freedom to practise their religion without restraints or fear”.

>In Madaba, Hazem Al Fouqaha said many Muslim residents will stand as guards in front of churches to ensure the safety of Christians inside.

>As North Korea threatens to unleash fury on the US, conspiracy theorists claim to have found 'evidence' that suggests Americans' fears should instead be focused closer to home.

>An alert has surfaced on the web describing an exercise called 'Operation Gotham Shield', which will conduct a simulation crisis by detonating a 10,000-ton nuclear bomb over the New York City/New Jersey area next week.

>Agencies involved in the exercise, which is said to be a routine drill, have noted that it will simulate 'a large scale terrorist attack' – but some believe it may turn into an actual disaster.
yeah right
>Simulation Crisis
The statement of a nuclear bomb within the exercise makes it somewhat like clickbait. These are routine events where nothing actually happens beyond a bunch of officials sitting in a room essentially playing city-themed DND. Parks and Recreation did an episode (S5E13) that's a good example of the process, although only as a side plot.

The terminology is key in the operation, as to what level they're going to. The following is a pretty good reference:

The exercise is between the HCANJ, LANJ, and NJDOH which are a medical organization, limousine/taxi organization, and the department of health. The participants have no ties to handling an actual nuclear weapon.

The disaster the article is referring to is an issue of scheduling.

As to a third party being involved, detonating an actual bomb during the exercise would cause confusion to the level of thinking it's part of the exercise for a few minutes. It would be silly as they've got their manuals right in front of them on how to respond to it.
>These are routine events where nothing actually happens beyond a bunch of officials sitting in a room essentially playing city-themed DND.
Wow, it's fucking nothing.
Movie sets are more exciting than large scale drills.
They're shooting MI6 in Paris right now, there are stuntmen flying from cranes while bikes crashes into cars. It's literally more exciting than terrorism that doesn't use special effects.
Drills are pretty much a DnD with more phone calls to make sure everyone's playing correctly.
Wasn't there some drill taking place on 9/11 that confused the shit out of everyone?

>The AJC issued a statement asking the pontiff to reconsider his "regrettable" choice of words.

Four services facing elimination under proposed cuts could be maintained at the cost of President's visits to private Florida resort over four years, figures show

Donald Trump could reverse his recently announced cuts to arts, poor and elderly services if he cut his trips to Mar-a-Lago and lived permanently in White House instead, figures indicate.

Calculations show four programmes that face elimination - which tackle homelessness, unemployment among over-55s, participation in the arts and helping the poor access higher education - could be maintained at the cost of the President’s trips to his private Florida resort over the course of four years.

The services amount to a total of $597 million — just less than the $600 million security arrangements for the Mr Trump's Mar-a-Lago visits are estimated to cost the taxpayer over the course of his term.

The National Endowment for the Arts, which encourages participation in the arts ($152 million), the US Interagency Council on Homelessness ($4 million), an independent agency coordinating the federal government's efforts to reduce homelessness, the Senior Community Service Employment Program ($434 million), which has helped more than one million people 55 and older find jobs and the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars ($11 million), providing scholarships and fellowships in social sciences and humanities, are all facing the axe in Mr Trump's budget.

This amounts to a total of $597 million (£483 million). According to CBS News, the President spent every weekend of his first 33 days in office at the Palm Beach estate - for which security is estimated to have cost $10 million (£8.1 million).

This. If he hadn't jerked off during the campaign about how he was going to be making the executive a much more lean, hard-at-work position I wouldn't have as much of a problem with it.

>WASHINGTON — Ever since F.B.I. investigators discovered in 2013 that a Russian spy was trying to recruit an American businessman named Carter Page, the bureau maintained an occasional interest in Mr. Page. So when he became a foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign last year and gave a Russia-friendly speech at a prestigious Moscow institute, it soon caught the bureau’s attention.

>That trip last July was a catalyst for the F.B.I. investigation into connections between Russia and President Trump’s campaign, according to current and former law enforcement and intelligence officials.

>It is unclear exactly what about Mr. Page’s visit drew the F.B.I.’s interest: meetings he had during his three days in Moscow, intercepted communications of Russian officials speaking about him, or something else.

>After Mr. Page, 45 — a Navy veteran and businessman who had lived in Moscow for three years — stepped down from the Trump campaign in September, the F.B.I. obtained a warrant from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court allowing the authorities to monitor his communications on the suspicion that he was a Russian agent.

>From the Russia trip of the once-obscure Mr. Page grew a wide-ranging investigation, now accompanied by two congressional inquiries, that has cast a shadow over the early months of the Trump administration. At a House Intelligence Committee hearing last month, the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, took the unusual step of publicly acknowledging the investigation of Russian interference in the election, which he said included possible links between Russia and Trump associates.

>White House press secretary Sean Spicer "needs to go" in the fallout of his comments about Adolf Hitler, Rep. Mike Coffman of Colorado said Wednesday night. In doing so, Coffman appeared to become the first Republican member of Congress to publicly call for Spicer's ouster.

>Coffman, a moderate representing a swing district in and around Aurora, was asked at a town hall about Spicer's remarks this week that even Hitler didn't "sink to using chemical weapons" during the Holocaust. He made the remarks while discussing Syria's Bashar al-Assad and a recent chemical attack that killed dozens in the country.

>The pointed question to Coffman came from a woman who said her great-grandparents died in Auschwitz.

>"What is your thoughts at this time of a president who has anti-Semetic people in his Cabinet?" she asked. She wanted Coffman's reaction to the fact that Spicer made reference to a "Holocaust center" and suggested that "Hitler didn't use gas on his own people."

>"I need to hear from my congressman that these things are unacceptable," the woman said.

>"Spicer made a terrible mistake yesterday. If you're not familiar with what he did is that he..." Coffman began to say, but the audience made clear that it didn't want to hear excuses.

>Throwing up his hands, Coffman said: "He needs to go."

Liberal media has been making fun of Spicer's gaffs to cover a slow news day. He constantly mispronounces world leaders names and makes similar mix ups like this one with less serious subjects. I'm liberal as fuck and I think its mostly innocent stuff. There are better reasons to find the spice man despicable.
>He constantly mispronounces world leaders names and makes similar mix ups like this one with less serious subjects.
Huh, I hadn't noticed. Makes him the perfect spokesperson for Trump.

People have to stop being so Superficial about the way people speak and just listen for the point. We do that a lot online.

I'm all in favor of the left mocking spicer though, so long as its actually funny.
>making fun of Spicer

The Press Sec is supposed to be the whipping boy/girl. It's basically in their job description that they absorb all the petty criticisms and take the fall for any unpopular announcements (guilt by association -- remove the Pavlovian association) and that their job won't last more than a year. No modern president has had fewer than 3 press secs.

So let Spicer have all the worst of all your frustrations and hell, shit that would be unfair to rain down upon any normal human being (even a President), because it's his job -- that he's paid a shitload to do -- and he knows exactly the breaks -- to take it.

Basically it's like the brutal trolling of a /b/tard while posting on /b/. They know the game, and they can stop playing whenever they want.
Who doesn't know that hitler presided over genocide of german ethnic minorities using poison gas?

Many people think it's just the Trump administration tipping their hats to white supremacists because now you have a pattern of this behavior and given historic precedent, it seems hard to think it's always coincidence.

Maybe it was just him being stupid and then doubling down on saying something stupid when a journalist tried to give him a moment to take back what he said.
He called them haulicaust centers, gas chambers my dude. He mixed modern speak with history to make such a convoluted connection that he doesn't seem to have a grasp on history at all. If the bar is so low for someone who answers questions for the pres then I fear for the future of our understanding of history.

Wikipedia ought to be everybody’s first stop when looking up a current news event.


On 21 April 2017, the federal prosecutor announced that it had arrested 28-year-old German-Russian citizen, identified only as Sergej W., on suspicion of 20-fold attempted murder, bringing about an illegal detonation of explosives, and aggravated battery. The man held put options allowing him to short-sell 15,000 Borussia shares worth around €78,000, and had been staying at the Borussia team hotel in a room with a view of the crime scene at the time of the attack.

lol. germany intelegence service used such tactics already against turks, who got the social ladder faster than they were told. there is a turk in Berlin who was arested on spying accusations because he was big fan of flying with small airplanes and got hist license in the school. the same school where some german politician son failed the same class. the turk have rotten in prison for 13 years until the son of the turk went to TV in Turkey and german goverment during the night kicked the spy turk into turkish custody by dropping him out of private airplane at turkish airport and told his family to shut up or they will be assassinated.
Yes evil Germans bully poor Turks all the time.

There are many women who don't want to have abortions, you know.
>And a stranger raping a random woman and getting her pregnant AND demanding parental rights for the rape baby, is flat-out fantasy straight out of a Jane Austen novel.
More often than not rape rapist are not "random strangers", they are people they know they have rejected their advance but have ended up raping out of frustration anyway. Those rapist want control over their victims and a very calssic way is precisely to ask for the rape-child custody.

>Which only leaves cunt wives fucking over divorced fathers and preventing them from seeing their own children.
Not it doe snot "only " leave that out. As I said, many rapist will want to keep control over their victims by trying to get custody.
>Which was the entire and only reason for this legislation all along.
Wrong, it's to prevent rapists to have custody over their kids.
You know how fucking wrong you are?
It is literally legal in all 50 states.
>feminists are mad that men do things
More news at 11!

also from what I read this bill didn't specify that the rapist had to be convicted. So it was more like "all-male committee ensures that ACCUSED rapists still POTENTIALLY have the right to see their ALLEGED victim's children who are also their own children"
And seeing as how non-rapist fathers still have a hard time seeing thier kids, it's not like this is likely to happen very often.
