This is all kind of confusing unless the inhabitants are foreigners to their own country like we have been saying for years?….

After refusing to sign a pledge of allegiance to the state of Israel, the state of Georgia shut down a media literacy conference featuring journalist and filmmaker Abby Martin at Georgia Southern University. Martin had recently released a documentary critical of the Israeli government called “Gaza Fights for Freedom.” Now she is suing the state, claiming the decision is a violation of the First Amendment. Along with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund (PCJF), today she filed a federal free speech lawsuit against the university system of Georgia.

Martin was dismayed by the university’s decision: “This censorship of my talk based on forced compliance to anti-BDS laws in Georgia is just one level of a nationwide campaign to protect Israel from grassroots pressure. We must stand firmly opposed to these efforts and not cower in fear to these blatant violations of free speech,” she said.

@AbbyMartin

After I was scheduled to give keynote speech at an upcoming @GeorgiaSouthern conference, organizers said I must comply w/ Georgia’s anti-BDS law & sign a contractual pledge to not boycott Israel. I refused & my talk was canceled. The event fell apart after colleagues supported me

“The hyperbolic notion that conservatives are the ones being persecuted on college campuses has made blatant censorship campaigns against people for criticism of Israel, or other progressive protests, go completely ignored,” Martin wrote.

CAIR’s Legal Defense Fund Senior Litigation Attorney Gadeir Abbas said,

There is no place where free speech is more important than on campus. And this attempt to suppress Abby’s views ­– denying students, academics, and others from hearing her lecture – is as brazen as it is illegal. In adopting this anti-BDS law, Georgia has prioritized the policy preferences of a foreign country over the free speech rights of Americans, like Abby, who speak on this state’s college campuses.”

The PCJF likened the BDS movement to the boycotts of the civil rights movement in the mid-twentieth century, its Executive Director Mara Verheyden-Hilliard described the laws as “extraordinary, outrageous, illegal and unconstitutional.” In 1956 Martin Luther King and his movement were criminalized for carrying out boycotts, as Southern states passed legislation to penalize their behavior, only for it to be later struck down by the Supreme Court. This is what Martin and the alliance of non-governmental organizations is hoping will happen here too. Why should I have to “contractually pledge loyalty to a foreign country?” she asked at her press conference today.

In 2016, Georgia Governor Nathan Deal signed a law requiring any person or organization entering into a contract with the state worth at least $1,000 sign an oath promising that they would not oppose the Israeli government in any fashion. CAIR has reason to believe they could overturn the law its Georgia Executive Director, Edward Ahmed Mitchell, called “blatantly and hilariously unconstitutional.”

In 2018, Bahia Amawi, a Houston-based children’s speech pathologist who worked with autistic, speech-impaired and other developmentally disabled children, lost her job after she refused to sign a similar document. Amawi had been at her job for nine years previously without a problem. CAIR took up Amawi’s case and managed to overturn every Texas boycott law on the grounds of their unconstitutionality and she is now free to return to work. They appear confident of a similar victory in Georgia.

Martin began as a citizen journalist covering the Occupy movement in her native California. From 2012 to 2015 she hosted the show Breaking the Set on RT. In the famous D.N.I. report into alleged Russian interference into the 2016 election, the U.S. government accused her of “promoting radical discontent” in America, something she appears to wear as a badge of honor. Her current documentary series, Empire Files, is broadcast on TeleSUR English. However, due to sanctions against the Venezuelan government, Gaza Fights for Freedom was crowdfunded. She is also the host of Media Roots Radio.

 

Nightmarish Sexual Assault Exam Forced on 5yo Girl by Police Because She Fell Off a Trampoline

Published by the Reign Bulletin on 02-17-2020

INTERNATIONAL PUBLIC NOTICE

 

Mountain View, CA — Madeleine Lother, 5, was on a play date with friends at a trampoline park last year when she took a spill and fell on a large knotted rope. That fall would then set off a series of events that would lead to a living nightmare for the girl and her parents and a $600,000 settlement.

On Friday, the family accepted a $600,000 settlement after their daughter was forced to undergo a humiliating exam. The Daily Post reports that the Lothers filed a motion asking a judge to approve a $600,000 settlement. The settlement would cover the Lothers’ attorneys fees and does not require any admission of guilt or liability from any of the defendants. The daughter who was stripped would receive about $80,000. Her older sister, who was also questioned by police, would get about $40,000. The Lothers’ attorney, Robert Powell of San Jose, would be paid $40,000. The parents would receive $440,000.

This nightmare for the Lother family started on January 25 at a trampoline park when Madeline fell off a rope and injured herself.

“She was crying. She went in the foam pit and continued to play with her friends, and she was crying, holding her private area,” said Madeleine’s mother Danielle.

When Danielle got home, she checked her daughter’s private area, saw a minor scrape, and then called the pediatrician for advice. The injury was so minor, however, that it required very little attention.

“I mean, we kept checking it. I washed it. We bathed her, but it was kind of like a non-issue after that,” Danielle said, according to ABC 7.

Doug, Madeleine’s father, said, “By the end of the day, there was no bleeding. It seemed like a full recovery, yeah.”

The incident was over and on Monday, Madeleine returned to school as normal.

Madeleine, like any child would do, then told her teacher about the injury. In a childlike manner, Madeleine told the teacher that her vagina was bleeding. Instead of calling the girl’s parents, however, the school called Child Protective Services, who then showed up with police to the Lother residence—beating on the door.

“They all just came into the house and I was just kind of like pushed to the side,” said Danielle.

Once inside, according to the lawsuit, police officers Mark Poirier, Mason Motomura and Matthew Rogers would proceed to break the law by refusing to tell the parents why they were there.

“When these people came to the door, they should have told the mother, by law, why they were there, what the claim was,” Bob Powell, the Lother’s attorney said. But they did not.

Police then took the girl outside into the front yard — without her parents — and questioned her without consent. According to the lawsuit, the girl told officers exactly what happened, explaining how she fell at the trampoline park. After being interrogated in public by three police officers, however, the girl began to whine and told police she did not want to answer anymore questions.

According to the suit, Poirier is heard on a police body camera recording saying that the concerns of possible sexual abuse seemed “more and more unfounded,” and that the injuries were innocent in nature.

However, they were hell bent on forcing this little girl to undergo a horrifying sexual assault exam anyway.

“They say, ‘Okay, this is what’s going to happen. We just called the paramedic. She’s coming out here and we want to examine Madeleine’s vagina,’” said Doug.

Both Doug and Danielle refused to give consent, instead giving them the pediatrician’s number to verify they called the doctor when the injury happened. They also offered the numbers of the witnesses who saw Madeleine fall.

“Danielle (Lother) offered in a pleading tone to take the child to the doctor tomorrow and send them the results,” according to the suit. “Danielle again offered that she would get the pediatrician on the phone. These offers were again refused.”

Instead of seeing the clear evidence laid out before them that this was an innocent injury, police then issued an ultimatum: let us give the sexual assault exam here, or we take your daughter.

“There is only two options,” he said, according to the lawsuit’s transcription of body camera footage. “Doing this here in her own home with a female medical expert. Mom is welcome to be present, nothing traumatic, abusive is going to happen, or if you refuse, then we have to go the other route and CPS will take them in … to be seen by an emergency room doctor.”

“And I said to them, ‘You know what? You guys are- there’s three of you here and you all have firearms, and there’s nothing I can do to stop you,’” said Doug.

“Madeline didn’t want her pants off. She was squeezing her legs together, screaming, ‘No! Stop it!’ Scratching, hitting, you know, self-defense really for her,” said Danielle.

As the lawsuit explains in shocking detail, “in a nightmarish moment of his life, Douglas (Lother) actually found himself holding a flashlight with one hand, pointed at his daughter’s private parts, while he and his wife were holding down their struggling, screaming, crying 5-year-old daughter, as a stranger was putting her fingers on his child’s labia and spreading the outer folds of the labia with her fingers to visually inspect them in the bright light of a flashlight held by Douglas.”

Showing just how unnecessary and abusive this process was, after sexually assaulting the poor little girl, the paramedic concluded that there was nothing wrong with the child’s vagina — but only after prefacing her statement by noting that she was “no doctor.”

“There wasn’t even a mark on Madeleine. It had all healed. There was no blood. There was no cut. There was nothing,” said Danielle.

Although the forced sexual assault exam had ended, the damage to Madeleine had just begun. According to her parents, their daughter is now sad all the time, her grades have plummeted, and she is plagued by nightmares.

As the Mountain View Voice reported, “in the weeks following the incident, the family hired San Jose-based attorney Robert Powell, who filed a $1 million claim against the city of Mountain View arguing that suspected victims of child abuse cannot, by the department’s own policy, be detained involuntarily for the purposes of an interview or physical exam without the consent of a parent or guardian. Exceptions exist only for exigent circumstances, including an immediate need to address a medical issue or a belief that the child is at risk of harm if the interview or exam is not completed.”

In fact, the police department’s own guidelines explain that what these officers did was wrong.

Their guidelines on suspected child abuse cases say: “An officer should not detain a child involuntarily who is suspected of being a victim of child abuse solely for the purpose of an interview or physical exam without the consent of a parent or guardian.” “Child victims should not be interviewed in the home.” And “officers should defer interviews until a person who is specially trained in such interviews is available.”

All three of these guidelines were broken, according to the lawsuit. However, now that the taxpayers are shelling out the cash, no one will suffer any consequences for breaking those guidelines.

What’s more, no amount of money will ever remove the traumatizing scars left behind on this little girl—all left behind by people who claim to protect her.

Look Whose Body Was Just Pulled Up From The River With A Dirty Clinton Secret!

Published by the Reign Bulletin on 02-17-2020

INTERNATIONAL PUBLIC NOTICE

 

The Clinton crime spree continues. Seriously though, how many people who have some sort of connection to the Clintons are going turn up dead?

Look, I don’t care who you are, NOBODY has that many close friends and coworkers commit suicide or die from mysterious causes or is murdered.

Now you can add another name to the body count.

Kurt Smolek once worked for both Bill and Hillary Clinton, but specifically related to this, it’s his time at the State Department in Cambodia as a Diplomatic Security Agent that is of importance. It’s very likely that he could be connected to the PizzaGate scandal. Now authorities are pulling his body from the Potomac River.

According to TPN,

Cambodia is a country that is infamous for their human trafficking, child sex trafficking, and child sex tourism. The location where Smolek was stationed was a hot spot of this type of illegal activity, and it’s possible that he had been privy to some damning information on Hillary Clinton. While it can’t be confirmed exactly if Smolek had dirt on Hillary Clinton, one investigator by the name of George Webb is putting the pieces together as he searches for clues in Washington D.C. where Smolek’s body was pulled from the river. His website Webb stated:

“Yet another State employee is found mysteriously dead, his body pulled from the Potomac after being reported missing. This is related to PizzaGate as possible ties to the child trafficking and the criminals behind the numerous email and fraud related ‘mysterious deaths.’ There are clear links to overseas child trafficking hotspots, recent mysterious deaths related to the DNC / Clinton / email scandals, links to Clinton’s state dept.”

What we do know is that Smolek worked for the Clintons and probably knew about all the sex trafficking. He most likely also knew about Bill’s trips to Pedophile Island and on Epstein’s Lolita Express. He also most likely had ties to Debbie Wasserman Schulz, who was a person of interest in the death of Beranton Whisenant. The reason she was a suspect was because it was Whisenant who was investigating Schultz for her role in the DNC rigging the Democratic election. By the way, the DNC just happens to be located in the same city in which his body washed up.

Just 3% of What the US Spends Destroying Countries Could End Starvation—On the Entire Planet

Published by the Reign Bulletin on 02-17-2020

INTERNATIONAL PUBLIC NOTICE

It was reported this week that the Pentagon made $35 trillion — with a ‘T’ — in accounting adjustments in 2019 alone. That number is larger than the entire U.S. economy and is up from $30.7 trillion in 2018. The figure also dwarfs the Congressional approved military budget of $738 billion. Naturally, no one cares and Pentagon officials dismiss this black hole of spending as accounting errors.

“Within that $30 trillion is a lot of double, triple, and quadruple counting of the same money as it got moved between accounts,” said Todd Harrison, a Pentagon budget expert with the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

The “combined errors, shorthand, and sloppy record-keeping by DoD accountants do add up to a number nearly 1.5 times the size of the U.S. economy,” said Representative Jackie Speier, who asked the Government Accountability Office to investigate. The report shows the Pentagon “employs accounting adjustments like a contractor paints over mold. Their priority is making the situation look manageable, not solving the underlying problem,” she said.

This problem is only getting worse too. As Bloomberg reported, the Defense Department acknowledged that it failed its first-ever audit in 2018 and then again last year, when it reviewed $2.7 trillion in assets and $2.6 trillion in liabilities. Despite the shame of failing—twice—the accounting “errors” have grown.

Imagine running a company in which you accounted for spending like they do at the Pentagon. If you were the CFO, you’d be fired, if and only if the entire business didn’t already collapse. However, because these morons have an unlimited pool of tax revenue and Federal Reserve dollars from which to draw resources, they are allowed to continue down this unaccountable path toward unsustainable debt and spending.

In the meantime, Democrats and Republicans alike remain silent as questioning the military industrial complex is akin to a thought crime. The war machine must go on and continue to expand or else they’ll find themselves out of a job. The majority of Americans follow the same code of silence when it comes to military spending. Boobus Americanus sits back in his recliner as his grandchildren’s future is squandered by mass murderers dropping million dollar bombs on people living in tents on the other side of the planet — for ‘freedom’ — of course.

Despite audits and scrutiny from those paying attention, the Pentagon has only continued to lose money by the trillions since 9/11, and a report analyzing the budgets of the Department of Defense (DoD) and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) shows that the total is more than $21 trillion.

The report attributes the missing funds to a series of “unsupported journal voucher adjustments” made to the departments’ budgets. These adjustments are not tied to specific accounting transactions, but they are often included in account summaries to cover for balances between systems that cannot be reconciled.

As The Free Thought Project has reported, not only is it likely that the actual amount of money the DoD and HUD cannot account for is much higher than $21 trillion, due to the fact that researchers did not have access to complete data, but the practice of creating counterfeit adjustments appears to be standard procedure.

“Perhaps even more troubling than the total amount lost is the fact that fraudulent behavior from HUD and DOD seem to be the standard operating procedure. In fact, the accounting for these funds is so poor, that as Reuters notes, the Defense Finance and Accounting Services (DFAS) refers to the preparation of the Army’s year-end statements as ‘the grand plug’ — ‘plug’ is accounting jargon for the insertion of made-up numbers.

For every transaction, a so-called ‘journal voucher’ that provides serial numbers, transaction dates and the amount of the expenditure is supposed to be produced. The report specifies that the agency has done such a poor job in providing documentation of their transactions, that there is no way to actually know how $21 trillion has been spent.”

The problem is so bad, that these warmongers have ‘lost’ $58,386 per second since 9/11.

Those of us not blinded by the propaganda and false patriotism, see the inevitable results of such a propensity for supporting war. We see domestic infrastructure crumbling, a national debt increasing by record amounts each year, more conflict around the globe, and countless veterans suffering from PTSD. When will it all end? At this pace, it won’t end until the empire falls.

Luckily, there are people waging a campaign to prevent further war and subsequent deficit spending. They are paying to put up billboards showing just how much of your money the US steals to blow up brown people in foreign countries. The group is World Beyond War and their efforts are massive. For the last several years, they’ve been putting up powerful billboards all over the country. One of them can be seen below.

 

 

They back these numbers up with data on their website, pointing out that in 2008, the United Nations said that $30 billion per year could end hunger on earth, as reported in the New York TimesLos Angeles Times, and many other outlets. The Food and Agriculture Organization has not updated that figure since 2008, and has recently told us that such figures do not require much updating. In a separate report, most recently published in 2015, the same organization provides a figure of $265 billion as the cost per year for 15 years to permanently eliminate extreme poverty, which would eliminate starvation and malnutrition — a broader project than just preventing starvation one year at a time. The FAO’s spokesperson informed us in an email: “I think it would be incorrect to compare the two figures as the 265 billion has been calculated taking into consideration a number of initiatives including social protection cash transfers aimed at extracting people from extreme poverty and not just hunger.”

As of 2019, the annual Pentagon base budget, plus war budget, plus nuclear weapons in the Department of Energy, plus Homeland Security and other military spending totaled well over $1 trillion — not counting what’s “lost.”

3% of $1 trillion = $30 billion.

So, 3% of U.S. military spending could end starvation on earth.

22% of $1.2 trillion = $265 billion.

So, 22 percent of U.S. military spending for 15 years could permanently end extreme poverty globally.

With the globe spending roughly $2 trillion per year on militarism (roughly half of it by the United States), we can also say that 1.5% of GLOBAL military spending could end starvation on earth.

Are you ready to end all war yet? We are.

Why would the Texas Attorney General try to stop a California Travel Ban which prevents state-funded travel to other states that are deemed discriminatory against the LGBTQ community?

Published by the Reign Bulletin on 02-17-2020

INTERNATIONAL PUBLIC NOTICE

 

AUSTIN – Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton vowed to “stop” California’s travel ban, which prevents state-funded travel to other states that are deemed discriminatory against the LGBTQ community.

After filing a lawsuit this week, Paxton told to Fox News the ban is “discriminatory” against the 11 states that are included in it.

“We shouldn’t be harmed because we have a different view,” Paxton, a Republican, said in an interview. “This was an important issue to us. We think it is important to the entire nation.”

It seems that everything that comes out of California has to do with Communism or the destruction of the family so why would someone spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to try to invite that self destruction into another state? Looks like someone trying to milk the taxpayers with the creation of a frivolous law suit that does not affect anyone directly, or in other words, Who Cares?
