Christianity grows in Syrian town once besieged by Islamic State
John Davison
5 MIN READ
KOBANI, Syria (Reuters) - A community of Syrians who converted to Christianity from Islam is growing in Kobani, a town besieged by Islamic State for months, and where the tide turned against the militants four years ago.


The converts say the experience of war and the onslaught of a group claiming to fight for Islam pushed them toward their new faith. After a number of families converted, the Syrian-Turkish border town’s first evangelical church opened last year.

Islamic State militants were beaten back by U.S. air strikes and Kurdish fighters at Kobani in early 2015, in a reversal of fortune after taking over swaths of Iraq and Syria. After years of fighting, U.S.-backed forces fully ended the group’s control over populated territory last month.

Though Islamic State’s ultra-radical interpretation of Sunni Islam has been repudiated by the Islamic mainstream, the legacy of its violence has affected perceptions of faith.

evangelical Christianity is appealing because the preacher has a lot of freedom. There are so many sermons and content out there to draw from, so these Kurdish preachers can lift sermons and inspirational stories to make their flock feel good about themselves.

i kinda like it, Kurds should trans into Jewish and Christianity .

They could change religion on paper, live happily as atheists and or whatever.
Best part would be when they become super rich and advanced...

And, there would be no misunderstandings or wrong/malign interpretations , they were musli , they choose another religion and start to prosper real fast, and no one could take that from them, everyone around would see those people transition into really fast lane of prosperity .

Basically, one musli city and one hebochristian city side by side, and hch city just
fly by ,100 years of progress in 10 years. Musli city still uses goats and hch city has electric cars and stuff.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Despite evidence that millions of Hispanics and immigrants could go uncounted, the Supreme Court’s conservative majority seemed ready Tuesday to uphold the Trump administration’s plan to inquire about U.S. citizenship on the 2020 census in a case that could affect American elections for the next decade.

There appeared to be a clear divide between the court’s liberal and conservative justices in arguments in a case that could affect how many seats states have in the House of Representatives and their share of federal dollars over the next 10 years. States with a large number of immigrants tend to vote Democratic.

Three lower courts have so far blocked the plan to ask every U.S. resident about citizenship in the census, finding that the question would discourage many immigrants from being counted . Two of the three judges also ruled that asking if people are citizens would violate the provision of the Constitution that calls for a count of the population, regardless of citizenship status, every 10 years. The last time the question was included on the census form sent to every American household was 1950.

Three conservative justices, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch and Clarence Thomas, had expressed skepticism about the challenge to the question in earlier stages of the case, but Chief Justice John Roberts and Brett Kavanaugh had been silent, possibly suggesting a willingness to disrupt the administration’s plan.

However, over 80 minutes in a packed courtroom, neither Roberts nor Kavanaugh appeared to share the concern of the lower court judges who ruled against the administration.

Feel free to read up on the history of the citizenship question.

If you're going to backpeddle and ask for how this leads to arrests. ICE under Trump has been arrest immigrants who are going to court and thus depriving them of their due process.
https://theintercept.com/2019/01/28/ice-courthouse-arrests-in-new-york-increased-1700-percent-under-trump/

Meaning they used justice information to know when the Immigrants would arrive to arrest them and abuse their power. To think Trump wouldn't do the same thing with the census would be willful ignorance. But I'm going to guess your next plan of action is to nitpick. I just set a precedent for his behavior though.
>>
>>387481
Might want to proofread your posts. You went from the census directly to ICE using courts to arrest illegal aliens. You have to show the connection to how admitting to being undocumented will lead to ICE locating and deporting you.

Testy aren't we? It's a common quote most of us have heard for a majority of the "War on Terror" years. It's a quote we cite when trying to explain that defining terrorism isn't always black & white.


Yes, the majority of Americans would initially denounce acts of terrorism against one another. Once the editorials, pundits, and experts weigh in, some Americans would not see the discussed actions as terrorism but consequential defense.

Brazilian mixed martial artist Joyce Vieira was posing for a swimsuit photoshoot on a Rio de Janeiro beach earlier this month when she noticed a nearby man staring at her with his penis out, masturbating. Vieira first tried using her words to get the creep to cut it out, but when diplomacy failed, she made use of her highly trained fists and feet.

Vieira discussed the specifics of the incident in an interview with Brazilian paper Folha de São Paulo. When she first saw the man, who has since been identified as 27-year-old Josinei Ferreira, she didn’t register what he was doing. Upon closer inspection, she noticed that his swim trunks were pulled down.

Vieira approached Ferreira and asked him to stop. It was then that she noticed he was “visibly erect, making noises and groaning.” Once again, Vieira told him to stop, to which she says he replied, “Why, you don’t like it? Come here.”

That was when she snapped. “It was very surreal. Generally people who are caught doing this always deny it, ‘No, no, no.’ He didn’t. He continued.” Vieira responded by kicking him. Ferreira punched her back. “But the punch made me even angrier. I wanted to kill him,” Vieira said.

Here are a couple more photos of the fight:

Vieira told Folha it didn’t take long for Ferreira to realize he was overmatched. “When the guy saw that it was going to get real, he started screaming.” When another beachgoer came to Vieira’s aid, Ferreira took off running.

After the encounter, Vieira filed a police report. Through the photos of the incident, police were able to identify Ferreira and arrest him, charging him with sexual harassment. Ferreira has since been released from police custody, and has denied the allegations, saying Vieira was confused and that he was peeing, not masturbating, at the time. The criminal matter is still ongoing.

To be fair, she told him to stop, he didn't, she went at him, he punched her, and she proceeded to kick the shit out of him.

It's a grey area. If she just called the police, they may or may not respond/take it seriously/get there promptly and then what? Let this guy wander off or finish jerking off to her?

Should she have to follow him through several suburbs screaming shame and ringing a bell?

If he owns a vehicle, he is going to make a beeline towards it and flee, possibly to never be seen again or charged.

Her attacking him can easily fall under the grey area of a citizens arrest, and a public beach can easily fall under the category of a place you would generally expect children to frequent.

TLDR get caught yanking it in public and expect to have all sorts of trouble come your way.

>Despite years of behind-the-scenes cajoling and open threats of economic sanctions from two U.S. administrations, Washington appears to have failed to dissuade Germany from moving ahead with the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline — and Moscow now boasts that the massive Russia-to-Europe project is just months from completion. Analysts say the U.S. missed key opportunities over the past five years to stop the pipeline, which critics fear will form the backbone of a working relationship between Germany and Russia that could strain NATO, undercut a struggling Ukraine, and threaten the energy security of the U.S. and its allies in Eastern Europe.

A mayor in New Jersey has been forced to apologise after he responded to antisemitic tweet by telling the man to “just call police”.

John G Ducey was asked to do something about the parks and beaches in Brick Township by a tweeter using the handle @simms10471.

The user, who has since deleted the account, complained that they were “being invaded by the hasidic and orthodox jews".

They added: "Our tax paying residents are being forced out while politicians sit and do nothing.”

Mayor Ducey replied: “Our parks security has started already. Just call police with any problems and they will send them out.”

The Democrat who was elected in 2014, was criticised by fellow Twitter users for his seemingly flippant response.

“Hey mayor seems like you’ve got a bigotry problem in town,” wrote wrote in a reply to the mayor’s tweet. “Address that first.”

Another added: "The Mayor of Brick township clearly has not yet figured out that as a public official you should confront & condemn blatant antisemitism & bigotry & not respond to it like a traffic light is out. A bigoted & unacceptable mischaracterisation of any community claims repudiation."

A radical, so-far-left-they’re-not-liberal-anyone political group that boosted New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's bid for Congress last year vowed to oppose former Vice President Joe Biden in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary, blasting him as part of the “old guard” and accusing him of standing in opposition to the “center of energy” in the Democratic Party.

“The old guard of the Democratic Party failed to stop Trump, and they can’t be counted on to lead the fight against his divide-and-conquer politics today,” the radical Justice Democrats said. “The party needs new leadership with a bold vision capable of energizing voters in the Democratic base who stayed home in 2016.”

"It's probably worth noting that while this group, Justice Democrats, calls Biden 'out-of-touch' with the 'center of energy' in the Democratic Party, only 26 of the 79 candidates it endorsed last year won their primaries, and only 7 of those went on to win the general election," said Nate Silver, the editor of FiveThirtyEight.

President Trump spent a significant part of his Tuesday meeting with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey complaining that he had lost followers, The Washington Post reported, citing a person with direct knowledge of the conversation.

The president reportedly said that he believed Twitter was deliberately removing his followers and that he knew other conservatives who also had lost followers.

Twitter has said follower counts can change as it works to crack down on bots and get rid of fake accounts. Dorsey reportedly emphasized this in the meeting and noted that he has also lost followers as a result.

The Hill has reached out to the White House and Twitter for comment.

Trump previously joined other Republicans in accusing social media companies of censoring or working to limit conservative messaging.

Ahead of the meeting, Trump bashed the company in a pair of tweets.

"Very discriminatory, hard for people to sign on. Constantly taking people off list. Big complaints from many people. Different names-over 100 [million]. But should be much higher than that if Twitter wasn’t playing their political games," Trump tweeted Tuesday morning.

> October 10, 2016 in Wilkes-Barre, PA: "This just came out," Trump said. "WikiLeaks, I love WikiLeaks."
> October 12, 2016 in Ocala, FL: "This WikiLeaks stuff is unbelievable," Trump said. "It tells you the inner heart, you gotta read it."
> October 13, 2016 in Cincinnati, OH: "It's been amazing what's coming out on WikiLeaks."
> October 31, 2016 in Warren, MI: "Another one came in today," Trump said. "This WikiLeaks is like a treasure trove."
> November 4, 2016 in Wilmington, OH: "Getting off the plane, they were just announcing new WikiLeaks, and I wanted to stay there, but I didn't want to keep you waiting," said Trump. "Boy, I love reading those WikiLeaks."

Firebrand freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) deleted a tweet after incorrectly identifying a Democratic lawmaker as a Republican in a post blasting Republicans on Thursday.
The New York Democrat quoted a tweet from the Republican Party of Kentucky that featured a picture of House Budget Committee Chairman John Yarmuth (D-Ky.) standing next to a cardboard cutout of Ocasio-Cortez. In her response, Ocasio-Cortez slammed Republicans for allegedly posing "older male members" next to "young female legislators."

"Nobody:

GOP: Let's pose our older male members next to cardboard cutouts of young female legislators," her tweet said, before being quickly deleted.

Republicans were quick to pounce on the congresswoman for the mistake, with the NRCC blasting out an email noting she is a co-sponsor on one of Yarmuth's bills.

"Maybe if @AOC spent more time interacting with lawmakers and less time making coloring books, she'd recognize the other socialist Democrats in her caucus," the House GOP's campaign arm tweeted in response.

Ocasio-Cortez has not shied away from responding to critics, both among her colleagues and in the media, on Twitter. A recent analysis found that the progressive lawmaker has the most engaged Twitter of all politicians other than President Trump.

The Hill has reached out to Ocasio-Cortez's office for comment.

>Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. announced Thursday that he would seek the Democratic nomination to challenge President Trump in 2020, marshaling his experience and global stature in a bid to lead a party increasingly defined by a younger generation that might be skeptical of his age and ideological moderation.

>Mr. Biden, 76, is set to offer himself as a levelheaded leader for a country wracked by political conflict, a rationale he believes could attract a broad cross-section of voters who want to move on from Mr. Trump. Mr. Biden is seen by many Democrats as a trustee of former President Barack Obama’s legacy, perhaps capable of restoring the consensus-seeking liberalism of Mr. Obama’s administration.

>“We are in the battle for the soul of this nation,” Mr. Biden said in a three-and-a-minute video laying out his reasons for running. “I believe history will look back on four years of this president and all he embraces as an aberrant moment in time. But if we give Donald Trump eight years in the White House, he will forever and fundamentally alter the character of this nation, who we are, and I cannot stand by and watch that happen.”

>The former vice president has encouraged that perception, labeling himself to reporters in early April as an “Obama-Biden Democrat” and suggesting that accounts of the left wing’s ascendancy in the party were greatly exaggerated.

First, I think you need to get familiar with the legal definition of assault.
Next, you need to understand the scope of a felonious crime.
After that, you need to ask yourself if a person who is willing to steal your livelihood by threat of death, or worse than threat, should have a say in how our society is governed.

And finally your rights end when they infringe upon the rights, safety, and/or possessions of other people.

Democrat Elizabeth "Pocahontas" Warren is proposing the elimination of existing student loan debt for millions of Americans, part of a sweeping set of education funding proposals announced as she and other presidential candidates seek to differentiate themselves in a sprawling field.

The Massachusetts senator says the proposal unveiled Monday would eliminate almost all student loan debt for 42 million Americans, canceling $50,000 in debt for each person with household income under $100,000. According to Warren's description of the plan in a piece to be posted on Medium, the debt cancellation proposal would create a one-time cost to the federal government of $640 billion.

Many in the growing field of Democratic candidates have proposed reforming the nation's student loan programs, including dramatic restructuring of existing refinancing structures, but Warren appears to be the first to propose flat-out debt cancellation. Warren and others in the field, including Sens. Cory Booker, Kirsten Gillibrand and Kamala Harris, are backing the Debt-Free College Act , a bill that would cover all costs for students attending a public college without necessitating loans.

Among Warren's other proposals is elimination of tuition and fees for two- and four-year public college degree programs, as well as a $100 billion investment in Pell Grants, a federal aid program that requires no payback.

Baltimore's mayor appears to have fled the state after the FBI and IRS raided her home and other locations, including City Hall.

Today, agents for the FBI and the IRS executed search warrants at the mayor’s homes and offices," said Hogan. "Now, more than ever, Baltimore city needs strong and responsible leadership. Mayor Pugh has lost the public trust. She is clearly not fit to lead. For the good of the city, Mayor Pugh must resign."

The city is now into the fourth week of Pugh on indefinite leave and silence is surrounding Baltimore’s top offices. Pugh’s aides have gone silent on status updates, declining to comment on her health this week- as questions linger on when, or if, she plans to return to work.

Last Friday her spokesman said she is recovering from pneumonia and plans to return to work.

Meanwhile, dominos continue to fall inside Baltimore City Hall on Tuesday, as acting Mayor Jack Young stayed tight-lipped on his recent decision to place a seventh Pugh staffer on leave of absence. -WJZ

"I’m committed to stabilizing the city and moving forward, and any changes I need to make, I will make them," said acting Mayor Young.

"I haven’t spoken to her in two and a half weeks. I haven’t heard from her. I have no idea other than what I read in the paper."

China’s major commercial banks have a funding issue outside Beijing’s control: They’re running low on the U.S. dollars they need for activities both at home and abroad.

The imbalance at Bank of China is small relative to its balance sheet, so it shouldn’t be seen as an imminent threat. The government’s $3.1 trillion in foreign exchange reserves are probably also a backstop in a crunch, but it’s unclear how bad things would have to get before Beijing would permit its use by major commercial banks.

In its annual report, Bank of China says that its asset-liability imbalance is more than addressed by dollar funding that doesn’t sit on its balance sheet. Instruments like currency swaps and forwards are accounted for elsewhere.

If that was anywhere close to being true, “more than addressed by dollar funding that doesn’t sit on its balance sheet”, then we wouldn’t be talking incessantly about China’s dollar short; to the point that, eight years later, the Wall Street Journal finally notices and writes a semi-concerned piece about a serious enough fragment that just doesn’t quite fit the mainstream worldview (QE and all that supposed money printing).

Nowhere in this relatively brief mention does the author ever ask the big question. In many ways, it is a positive sign that China’s dollar shortage is even being addressed in the mainstream at all. It is 2019 and somehow global shadow money, this eurodollar system, remains in its own shadows. That’s because everyone still believes, and the media reinforces the narrative, that 2008 was about subprime mortgages.

That shit is so creepy. The average Chinese owns 2.5 homes or some shit. The housing crash is going to be fucking horrifying.

The houses crashing down on them is already happening, and it is horrifying.
As for the bankers and Lehmans losing all their money, it is going to be what kills them as far as being a "super power". Moneys gonna go flooding out of China elsewhere. You average citizen is aware of this, which is why you see Chinese people buying up property in Canada and U.S.'s west coast.

All the wealth is sprinting to the US, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. This is one of the reasons property and housing is so expensive these days. On the other hand, I tend to be for anything that harms the CCP. I can tolerate a global recession, so long as those commies get the worst of it.

>How can it be that China’s most important banks are increasingly short of US dollars?
because we are winning the trade war and have been since it started, plain and simple

How does that follow? Have they needed to use those dollars to buy up American goods somehow? Do we have any evidence that those dollars have been repatriated?
It's true that we are advantageously positioned in the trade war, and that their is enough elasticity in our sources that the average American isn't feeling any real effects from the tariffs. And we're raking billions into the treasury because of it. Those are indications of a trade war going well.
But the lack of dollars in China is not necessarily related.
