Receiving a complaint about your service is always awkward, people rarely like to admit when they’ve done wrong. However, it seems that for some South Florida police departments filing a complaint is next to impossible. As this undercover video shows, you better have a damn good reason for your complaint because entering a police station without one can be scary, risky and even downright dangerous.

Popular Apps In Google's Play Store Are Abusing Permissions And Committing Ad Fraud

A host of popular Android apps from a major Chinese developer, including a selfie app with more than 50 million downloads, have been committing large-scale ad fraud and abusing user permissions, a BuzzFeed News investigation of popular Android apps has found. In several cases, the apps took steps that concealed their connections to the developer, DU Group, to users and failed to clearly disclose they were collecting and sending data to China. The investigation also raises questions about Google's policing of apps in the Play store for fraud and data collection practices.

ISIS-Related Group Threatens to Destroy What’s Left of Notre Dame

Fans of fanatical terrorist group ISIS were happy that a fire partially damaged Notre Dame Cathedral and have made threats on the internet to take down the surviving bell towers.

Al-Muntasir, an ISIS-linked group, posted a photoshopped image of the towers burning with the words “Wait for the next.” When the nearly nine century old church went up in flames, the group posted a picture of the blaze with the caption: “Have a good day.”

Despite this, officials determined the fire was accidental and was not arson or part of a terrorist attack.

Man caught with 2 gas cans entering St. Patrick's Cathedral in NYC, police say

A man was taken into custody in New York Wednesday night after entering St. Patrick’s Cathedral carrying two canisters of gasoline, two bottles of lighter fluid and two butane lighters, authorities said.

The 37-year-old man, whose identity will be released once he is formally charged, was stopped by a cathedral security officer, New York City Police said. As the man was turned around, he spilled some gasoline on the floor and walked south onto Fifth Avenue and over to 50th street.

Cathedral security notified two Critical Response Command (CRC) officers-- part of a "striker team"-- outside the cathedral.

Investigators said the man was cooperative but acted evasively and offered police inconsistent answers. He told officers that he was “cutting through the cathedral to get to Madison Avenue” and that "his car ran out of gas," police said. But when police checked the man's minivan, it's gas tank wasn't empty.

Annexation of West Bank may provide key to unlocking Netanyahu’s legal troubles

Organ donor? Organs are cut out of patients’ bodies even while they are conscious and aware, horrifying new science study reveals

If you’re an organ donor, you might have chosen that status out of a sense of goodwill, thinking that medical personnel don’t harvest your organs until after you’re dead and unconscious. But a new scientific study reveals that organ harvesting is very likely taking place even while patients are still conscious, even though their hearts have stopped beating.

This means that patients are fully aware — and experience all the pain — of doctors rapidly cutting into their bodies and slicing away their organs in order to generate “transplant profits” for the corrupt medical system.

NXIVM sex-cult prosecutors have evidence of illegal Clinton campaign contributions for “political influence”

US Attorney Richard Donoghue asked a federal judge last month for permission to present a mountain of new evidence in the NXIVM sex-cult trial – including evidence of an “illegal scheme to exceed contribution limits to a presidential primary campaign,” in the “hopes of obtaining political influence to advance their own agenda,” according to a March court filing.

Perry Prepares To Exit

Rick Perry is preparing to exit Trump’s cabinet — here’s why that will further damage US national security
***
Perry “is finalizing the terms and timing of his departure,” Bloomberg News reports Wednesday night, literally hours before Attorney General William Barr is to address the press on the impending release of his version of the Mueller report.

Bloomberg adds that “Perry’s exit isn’t imminent,” and is not one-hundred percent definite but that Perry, a former governor of Texas, has been planning his exit for weeks.

President Donald Trump reportedly asked Secretary Perry if he would become Secretary of Homeland Security before Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was fired. Perry refused.

North Korea Tests Mysterious ‘Tactical Guided Weapon’ After Failed Trump-Kim Summit

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un supervised the test of a new “tactical guided weapon” just months after the summit in Vietnam failed to achieve any results as the US continues to demand unconditional denuclearization before any sanctions relief.

The North Korean leader personally observed the new weapon test on Wednesday, KCNA reported, without providing details, other than saying it has a “peculiar mode of guiding flight” with a “powerful warhead”.

8 in 10 Americans Believe Muslims Face More Intolerance Than Any Other Group

Eight in ten Americans believe Muslims face more discrimination than any other group in the United States, according to a poll by the Pew Research Center.
82 percent of respondents said Muslims face discrimination, while 80 percent of those surveyed said blacks faced some discrimination, Daily Sabah reported.

Pew released the figures Monday after US President Donald Trump tweeted a video that attacked Muslim congresswoman Ilhan Omar from Minnesota.

The video was of a speech delivered by Omar in which she discussed how Muslim Americans came to be seen as second-class citizens after the September 11, 2001, terror attacks.>>>

Dispute Among US Officials Over Trump Administration Iran Arms Control Report

A new Trump administration report on international compliance with arms control accords provoked a dispute with US intelligence agencies and some State Department officials concerned that the document politicizes and slants assessments about Iran, five sources with knowledge of the matter said, Reuters reports.

US President Donald Trump is intensifying a drive to contain Iran’s power in the Middle East, which has raised fears that his administration wants to topple the Tehran government or lay the groundwork to justify military action.

The administration says it is trying to halt Iranian “malign behavior” in its support for Islamist militants in the region and denies seeking the overthrow of the Islamic republic’s government.

The clash among US officials emerged on Tuesday>>>

The State Department spokeswoman said that the US position that Russia is in violation of the INF Treaty “is clear.”

North Korea wants Pompeo removed from nuclear talks

Foreign ministry describes the US secretary of state as 'reckless' and says it wants him replaced by another official.

North Korea wants United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo replaced with someone "more careful and mature" in talks over its banned nuclear programme, a senior official told state media, hours after the country announced a missile test.

Describing Pompeo as "reckless" the foreign ministry said a summit in Vietnam earlier this year showed that talks could go wrong "whenever Pompeo pokes his nose in".

The April meeting in Hanoi between Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump collapsed after the US president reportedlygave Kim a document demanding that North Korea transfer its nuclear arsenal and weapons fuel to the US.

The model proposed was one that Pompeo and US National Security Adviser John Bolton had supported.

Rose windows of Notre Dame are safe but fate of other treasures is unclear

The cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris is home to scores of priceless artifacts, artwork and relics collected over the centuries, each with their own story.

As a devastating fire tore through the revered Gothic cathedral on Monday, toppling its spire, many feared these treasures might be lost forever.
A "forest" of wooden latticework fueled the blaze which consumed the building's roof, whose framework dates back to the 13th century, according to Msgr. Patrick Chauvet, the cathedral's rector.
The Paris Fire Brigade tweeted that the cathedral's stone construction has been "saved," as have the "main works of art." As more information emerges, what has been rescued from Notre Dame is becoming apparent.
Yet many details, such as possible water damage from the operation to save the building, are still unclear.

Oy Vey! Rabbi Reportedly Claims Notre Dame Fire May Be DIVINE PUNISHMENT

While French authorities investigate what caused the 15 April fire that ravaged the famous Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, one rabbi has speculated that this tragedy might’ve been the work of the divine, the Haaretz newspaper reports.

According to the newspaper, Shlomo Aviner, a rabbi of a West Bank settlement who was born in France, initially refrained from directly calling the blaze a punishment from god, but admitted that it might be possible after he was asked the following question: "So it can't be said that it was punishment?"
"It is possible, after all. The first big Talmud burning was in Paris, there in the plaza of the Notre Dame Cathedral", the rabbi said.

Columbine-obsessed teen Sol Pais dead after sparking massive manhunt

The Florida teen who flew to Colorado and bought a weapon and ammunition there just days before the 20th anniversary of the Columbine tragedy and soon became the subject of a massive manhunt is dead, officials said.

Sol Pais, 18, was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound on Wednesday morning near the Echo Lake Lodge at the base of Mount Evans in Clear Creek County, according to authorities.

The discovery ended a nearly 24-hour manhunt for the high school student after she boarded a Denver-bound flight Monday then made threats, officials said.

“Because of her comments and her actions, because of her travel here to the state, because of her procurement of a weapon immediately upon arriving here, we considered her to be a credible threat — certainly to the community and potentially to schools,” Dean Phillips, FBI special agent in charge of the Denver field office, said at a press conference. “She has had an infatuation with Columbine and the perpetrators of Columbine.”

Julian Assange Wins 2019 EU Journalism Award

Julian Assange has been awarded the 2019 European United Left-Nordic Green Left Award for Journalists, Whistleblowers and Defenders of the Right to Information, WikiLeaks informed Tuesday.

The award is given to individuals “uncovering the truth and exposing it to the public” and to honor “individuals or groups who have been intimidated and/or persecuted” for such actions. Thus recognizing Assange’s work through WikiLeaks.

The prize is sponsored by European left-wing parliamentarians, who devised it in 2018 in honor of assassinated Maltese journalist Daphne Galizia. Nobel Peace prize winner (1976), Mairead Maguire, received it on Assange’s behalf at an event in the European Parliament in France.

Julian Assange and the Agenda for Global War

For almost a decade Washington has sought to silence, jail and eliminate the world’s most prominent investigative journalist, Julian Assange (JA) and his team of co-workers at WikiLeaks (WL).

Never has the mass media been so thoroughly discredited by official documents which directly contradict the official propaganda, mouthed by political leaders and parroted by ‘leading’ journalists.

Washington is particularly intent on capturing JA because his revelations have had a particularly powerful impact on the US public, political critics, the alternative media and human rights groups in turning them against US wars in the Middle East, South Asia, Africa and Latin America.

We will proceed by discussing what JAand WLaccomplished and why the particular ‘cutting edge’ of their reportage disturbed the government.

New VA Whistleblower Protection Office Is Under Investigation for Retaliating Against Whistleblowers

The Veterans Affairs Department’s watchdog is investigating a new office created by President Trump early in his administration that was designed to protect whistleblowers from reprisal but is now facing allegations of aiding retaliation against them.

VA’s Office of Inspector General is leading the investigation from its new Office of Special Reviews, which the IG created to conduct “prompt reviews of significant events” and examine allegations of senior VA employee misconduct, an IG spokesman said. The new IG office is looking into activities at the Office of Accountability and Whistleblower Protection as part of an ongoing review of the implementation of the 2017 law that created OAWP.

Julian Assange Languishes in Prison as His Journalistic Collaborators Brandish Their Prizes

WHILE JULIAN ASSANGE languishes in south London’s maximum-security Belmarsh Prison, a British court is weighing his fate. The 48-year-old Australian founder of WikiLeaks is serving time for the minor crime of jumping bail by taking asylum in the Ecuadorian Embassy in 2012 to avoid extradition to Sweden. His fear at the time was that the Swedes, with a track record of assisting rendition of suspects sought by the U.S., would send him straight across the Atlantic. Now that he has lost his diplomatic refuge, 70 British members of Parliament have petitioned to dispatch Assange to Sweden if prosecutors there reopen the case they closed in 2017. The greater threat to his liberty is the U.S. Department of Justice’s extradition demand for him to stand trial in the U.S. for conspiring with Chelsea Manning to hack a government computer.

THE VIDEO AUTHORITIES DON’T WANT YOU TO SEE: MYSTERY PERSON & FLASH OF LIGHT BEFORE NOTRE DAME CATHEDRAL FIRE

If it had only been a singular incident involving a Catholic church in France the burning of one of the most well known human monuments to all of Christianity could be understandably classified as an unfortunate accident during recent renovation work. Given that more than a thousand French churches across the country have been vandalized in recent years, though, more and more French (and others) are wondering if the Notre Dame fire wasn’t something far more sinister.

Bamiyan, Babylon, Palmyra, Notre-Dame

The Bamiyan Buddhas were destroyed by an intolerant sect pretending to follow Islam. Buddhism all across Asia grieved. The West hardly paid attention.

The remaining ruins of Babylon, and the attached museum, were occupied, plundered and vandalized by a US Marine base during Shock and Awe in 2003. The West paid no attention.

Vast tracts of Palmyra – a legendary Silk Road oasis – were destroyed by another intolerant sect pretending to follow Islam with their backs covered by layers of Western “intelligence”. The West paid no attention.

Scores of Catholic and Orthodox churches in Syria were burnt to the ground by the same intolerant sect pretending to follow Islam with their backs sponsored and weaponized, among others, by the US, Britain and France. The West paid no attention whatsoever.

Notre-Dame, which in many ways can be construed as the Matrix of the West, is partially consumed by a theoretically blind fire.

From Jesus Christ to Julian Assange: When Dissidents Become Enemies of the State

“In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” — George Orwell

When exposing a crime is treated as committing a crime, you are being ruled by criminals.

In the current governmental climate, where laws that run counter to the dictates of the Constitution are made in secret, passed without debate, and upheld by secret courts that operate behind closed doors, obeying one’s conscience and speaking truth to the power of the police state can render you an “enemy of the state.”

That list of so-called “enemies of the state” is growing.

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is merely the latest victim of the police state’s assault on dissidents and whistleblowers.

The Ecuadorean Authorities Have No Reason to Detain Free Software Developer Ola Bini

By Danny O’Brien

Hours after the ejection of Julian Assange from the London Ecuadorean embassy last week, police officers in Ecuador detained the Swedish citizen and open source developer Ola Bini. They seized him as he prepared to travel from his home in Quito to Japan, claiming that he was attempting to flee the country in the wake of Assange’s arrest. Bini had, in fact, booked the vacation long ago, and had publicly mentioned it on his Twitter account before Assange was arrested.

Julian Assange’s Prosecution is about Much More Than Attempting to Hack a Password

By Cindy Cohn

The recent arrest of WikiLeaks editor Julian Assange surprised many by hinging on one charge: a Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA) charge for a single, unsuccessful attempt to reverse engineer a password. This might not be the only charge Assange ultimately faces. The government can add more before the extradition decision and possibly even after that if it gets a waiver from the UK or otherwise. Yet some have claimed that as the indictment sits now, the single CFAA charge is a sign that the government is not aiming at journalists. We disagree...
