One person has died and six more injured after gunshots were fired near Strasbourg Christmas Market tonight.

The wounded were seen lying on the floor and desperately taking shelter as markets and nearby restaurants were evacuated.

Chilling videos capture terrified people cowering on the floor and running in fear.

Former FBI Director James Comey has asked a U.S. court to quash House Republicans’ subpoena for his testimony, saying he wants to testify in public rather than behind closed doors.

In court papers filed late Thursday afternoon in Washington, Comey’s attorneys also asked for an order staying the closed-door congressional interview with members of the House Judiciary and Oversight committees that’s scheduled for Dec. 3 until the court rules.

“Today my legal team filed court papers to try to get transparency from House Republicans,” Comey said on Twitter. “Let the American people watch.”

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-12-06/republican-valadao-concedes-to-democrat-cox-in-calif-house-race

Democrat T.J. Cox defeated incumbent Republican David Valadao in California’s 21st Congressional District as Valadao conceded the race. The Associated Press had declared Valadao the winner in the Central Valley district, though votes counted since the Nov. 6 election put Cox ahead.

By defeating three-term Valadao, Cox joins a cohort of Democrats who seized GOP-held House seats in California. Cox is an engineer and local business owner who attacked Valadao on his nearly 100% record of supporting President Trump’s agenda.

The Cox win brings to 40 the number of seats Democrats have flipped in the House.

The government snared more than 3,000 illegal immigrants in just one day last week, the administration’s top border official told Congress on Tuesday, saying the situation qualifies as a full-blown “crisis.”

Kevin K. McAleenan, commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, said more than 1,100 of those caught either jumping the border or trying to come through a border crossing without permission were children, either traveling alone or with parents, and forced on the treacherous journey.

He said the 3,029 people caught on Dec. 3 was the highest total in years, and said at the rate illegal immigration across the border is running right now, the numbers of families and children could be double the record rate recorded last year.

“It is indeed both a border security and a humanitarian crisis,” he told the Senate Judiciary Committee.

His testimony came as Congress is debating President Trump’s request for billions of dollars in new money for border security — chiefly for a major chunk of his planned border wall.

Technically by launching the tear gas across the international boarder, it could have been considered a declaration of war, and in war time, tear gas is considered a chemical weapon.

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-china-religion/time-has-come-chinese-police-detain-prominent-house-church-leaders-idUSKBN1O90M5?il=0
BEIJING (Reuters) - Police have detained dozens of churchgoers and leaders of one of China’s most prominent Protestant “house” churches, congregation members and activists said, in the latest government action against unregistered religious groups.

Teams of police and state security officials in the southwestern city of Chengdu came to the homes of leaders and members of the Early Rain Covenant Church late on Sunday and detained them, according to church announcements sent to members and passed to Reuters by churchgoers and activists.

“The time has come. O, Lord! Did you not establish this church for this very purpose?” the church said in one of its announcements.

“We will wait for Thee, as one keeping vigil waits for daybreak.”

More than 100 people are believed to have been detained, said a church elder, who declined to be identified.

Neither the Chengdu nor national-level Public Security Ministries responded to faxed requests for comment.

China’s constitution guarantees religious freedom, but since President Xi Jinping took office six years ago, the government has tightened restrictions on religions seen as a challenge to the authority of the ruling Communist Party.

Where do you think their interviews about the camps came from you moron? Not even the Uyghurs who were in those camps are claiming they are death camps and that people are killed in there. They say they are forced to memorize slogans, get beaten if they don't or face other punishment but aren't being ethnically cleansed. You are a real retard if you think there is a Nazi style extermination camp going on.

There is an actual genocide and ethnic cleansing of native Jumma Buddhists by Bengali Sunnis in the Chittagong Hill Tracts. Bengali Sunni settlers are killing Jumma Buddhist civilians, driving them out of their villages, destroying their houses, and raping Jumma Buddhist girls. The western media isn't reporting on the mass rapes and killings of Jumma Buddhists going on right now. Al Jazeera and Survival International reported on the Jumma Buddhist genocide but not reuters, the guardian, DW, AFP, new york times, washington post, or any of the shit you call media.

Comedian refused to sign 'behavioural agreement' before gig

A comedian has turned down a gig at a university after being asked to sign a "behavioural agreement" first.

Konstantin Kisin was warned about a "no tolerance policy" on topics including racism, sexism and transphobia.

He was asked to perform at a gig at the School of African and Oriental Studies (SOAS) in London, organised by university society Unicef on Campus.

The group has since apologised and the Students' Union says it "believes fully in freedom of speech".
Konstantin told Radio 1 Newsbeat the experience reflects a growing trend of free speech becoming stifled on university campuses across the UK.

Rhode Island's Cranston School District hired a collection agency to recover unpaid student lunch balances.

In a letter to parents, Raymond Votto Jr., chief operating officer of Cranston Public Schools, said the district has previously tried to collect outstanding lunch bills "without much success."

"In an effort to reduce our unpaid balance, the District has retained the services of a collection agency. The company is Transworld Systems and they will begin their collection efforts effective January 2, 2019," the letter said.

Votto said between September 1, 2016 and June 30, 2018, the school district wrote off $95,508. He said the unpaid balance for the current academic year is $45,859.

"The District lunch program cannot continue to lose revenue," Votto said.

Lunch at a public elementary school in Cranston costs $2.50 per day. For middle school and high school students, it's $3.25 a day. Votto said parents who owe $20 or more and who haven't paid off the balance within 60 days will receive a letter from the collection agency starting next year.

>Cohen had pleaded guilty to nine federal charges of tax evasion, violating campaign finance laws, lying to banks and to Congress.

https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/michael-cohen-gets-3-years-cases-involving-stormy-daniels-lying-n946956

An emotional Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's former lawyer and fixer, was sentenced Wednesday to 3 years behind bars for what a Manhattan federal court judge called a “veritable smorgasbord of criminal conduct,” including making secret payments to women who claimed they had affairs with Trump, lying to Congress about the president’s business dealings with Russia, and failing to report millions of dollars in income.

Judge William Pauley found Cohen, 52, deserved “a significant term of imprisonment” for crimes that were driven by “personal greed and ambition.”

Cohen appeared to get choked up as he pleaded with the judge for mercy. He told Pauley he was taking “full responsibility” for his actions — but laid much of the blame at the feet of the former boss he once said he'd take a bullet for.

“I have been living in a personal and mental incarceration ever since the day that I accepted the offer to work for a real estate mogul whose business acumen that I deeply admired," Cohen told the judge, saying his blind loyalty to Trump led him to choose “darkness over light.”

He noted that Trump had blasted him as being weak on Twitter. “It was correct but for a much different reason than he was implying. It was because time and time again I felt it was my duty to cover up his dirty deeds," Cohen said.

He appeared to tear up as he apologized to his family and to the people of the United States.

The other eight - involving tax evasion, lying to financial institutions and violating campaign finance laws by hiding payments to a porn star and a Playboy Playmate who claimed they had affairs with were Trump - were brought by prosecutors in the Southern District of New York.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Nicholas Roos urged the judge to hand down a stiff sentence against Cohen, whose crimes showed a "pattern of deceit, brazenness and greed." He also said he'd failed to completely cooperate with investigators.

A prosecutor with the Special Counsel's Office, Jeannie Rhee, struck a kinder tone, and told the judge that Cohen had "provided consistent and credible information about core Russia-related issues under investigation" by their office. She did not elaborate. A sentencing memo filed by Mueller’s office said Cohen had provided federal investigators with information about his contacts with people connected to Trump and the White House.

Cohen lawyer Guy Petrillo argued his client deserved a break for having stood up to the president.

"He came forward to offer evidence against the most powerful person in our country," Petrillo told the judge, according to NBC New York.

He argued in court papers that Cohen should be spared jail time, while prosecutors said he should get a little less than the approximately five years called for by federal sentencing guidelines.

Pauley sentenced him to a total of 36 months behind bars, and three years of post-release supervision. The judge added a $50,000 fine and said Cohen must turn himself in on March 6.

The judge said Cohen deserved some credit for his decision over the summer to admit guilt and cooperate in the Russia probe, but his assistance "does not wipe the slate clean."

Cohen's daughter broke down in tears after the judge handed down his sentence, and was comforted by her glum looking father.

Cohen pleaded guilty on Nov. 29 to lying to Congress in an attempt to cover up efforts to build the Moscow tower.

After the sentencing, Cohen's former lawyer, Lanny Davis, promised that his client would release everything he knows about the president once Mueller completes his investigation.

“That includes any appropriate congressional committee interested in the search for truth and the difference between facts and lies. Mr. Trumps repeated lies cannot contradict stubborn facts,” Davis said in a statement.

Davis later in a phone interview compared Cohen to Richard Nixon's former White House Counsel John Dean, who helped investigators unravel the Watergate cover-up.

“It's just beginning,” he told NBC News.

The charges Cohen pleaded guilty to:

○ Count 1: False statements to Congress for when Cohen pleaded guilty to making false statements to Congress on Aug. 28, 2017, when he sent a two-page letter to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and the House of Representatives Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence as well as during testimony before Congress.

-------------------

Two points of interest, with Cohen saying Trump did this because of the campaign, it greatly weakens Trump being able to use the John Edwards defense for the charge of breaking campaign finance law.
And Trump has yet to respond on twitter. Very interesting considering his volatile temper

MOSCOW, Dec 11 (Reuters) - Two Russian strategic bombers capable of carrying nuclear weapons have landed in ally Venezuela in a show of support for the government there that infuriated Washington.

The TU-160 supersonic bombers, known as “White Swans” by Russian pilots, landed at Maiquetia airport near Caracas on Monday after covering more than 10,000 km (6,200 miles).

Their deployment came days after Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, whose left-wing administration is the most significant U.S. foe in Latin America, held talks with President Vladimir Putin in Moscow.

Capable of carrying short-range nuclear missiles, the planes can fly over 12,000 km (7,500 miles) without re-fuelling and have landed in Venezuela twice before in the last decade.

“Russia’s government has sent bombers halfway around the world to Venezuela,” fumed U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Twitter.

“The Russian and Venezuelan people should see this for what it is: two corrupt governments squandering public funds, and squelching liberty and freedom while their people suffer.”

As OPEC member Venezuela’s socialist-run economy implodes, Russia has become a key lender of last resort, investing in its oil industry and providing support to its military.

We have heard based on at least two sources (Woodward and the anonymous NYT author, whom I prefer to call Lodestar based on his unusual use of the word) that numerous members of Trump's staff take efforts to corral his worst impulses, up to and including ignoring orders they perceive to be delivered in bad faith.

Facebook began to delete posts with memes of president Poroshenko.

Today, December 12, Facebook social network users noticed that the photoshops posted on their pages (photos using montage - editor's note) to President Petro Poroshenko and children disappeared from the tape. The company explains the reason for deleting the edited images "violation of the rights of the author of the photo."

The General of the SBU and the former parliamentarian Omelchenko said he was ready to liquidate Russian President Vladimir Putin during a personal meeting. The 70-year-old general noted that he would be allowed to do this by appropriate special training. According to him, in a personal meeting with Putin, the Russian president would have no chance.

“I will not confuse Putin with his double. I know him well personally. From the end of the 90s - the late Anatoly Sobchak introduced him. As an officer of special forces and special services, having the appropriate training, if we met, I would go to liquidate him, ”Omelchenko said.

He also expressed confidence that "in the norms of international law, national legislation it would be all the same as the destruction of Osama bin Laden."

The State Committee for Television and Radio Broadcasting of Ukraine added 26 more publications to the list of prohibited books. Detective Novels by Darya Dontsova and children's works, in which they found signs of propaganda of Russian power structures, got into it. It is reported by the press service of the Ministry.

The ban also included works by Andrei Maximov, Anna and Sergei Litvinovs, Igor Osipov and Alexander Shevtsov. The committee banned the importation of a number of children's books, explaining that they "promote the power structures of the aggressor country or, under the guise of children's encyclopedias, spread myths about the superpower of Russia." (mentioned that russian police did their job)

It is noted that such literature "popularize Russian weapons and its armed forces." As an example, the publication of the Great Encyclopedia of Knowledge in Questions and Answers by Vladimir Zhabtsev was cited.

The Ukrainian regulator banned the anthology "Poetry of the Silver Age" on the basis that the work of the Russian poet Osip Mandelstam is represented in it by a poem about the death of Stalin.

Babchenko announced his intention to “drive” Russia with a “face on the table”.

"Well. We are starting a new series “Arkady Babchenko against the Russian Federation”. I signed a lawsuit at the ECHR. Ben Emmerson’s lawyer, Marina Litvinenko’s widow, Alexander Litvinenko’s widow, will be my lawyer, ”Babchenko wrote on his Facebook page.

“The suit is not just about attempted murder. There on fourteen pages in small print about everything. And about the persecution. And about criminal cases. And about the “Seventeen friends of the junta”. And about surveillance. And about Milonov, Channel One, the petition for deprivation of citizenship, Life, Tsargrad, the list of national traitors, the murder of my colleagues and friends, the ban on the profession, the stifling of freedom of speech, the beating of oppositionists, Marina Yudenich, Masha Zakharova, NTV, NOD - all, everyone, everyone, ”he wrote.

Babchenko added that there will be photos, videos and denunciations.

“I'm a bad guy. All these years I put everything in a separate daddy. Well, now it's time to open this daddy, ”said Babchenko.

The propagandist added that the amount of the claim has not yet been determined, but he warns that the amount will be normal, because he has something to spend money on.

France's President Emmanuel Macron has promised a minimum wage rise and tax concessions in response to weeks of violent protests.

France has seen four weekends of violent protests against fuel tax rises, living costs and other issues.

Speaking in a televised address to the nation, Mr Macron said that the anger of protesters was "deep, and in many ways legitimate".

The minimum wage would increase by 100 euros per month from 2019, he said.

A planned tax increase for low-income pensioners would be cancelled, while employers would be asked to pay a tax-free end of year bonus to employees, he added.

Mr Macron, who has until now kept a low profile during the protests, acknowledged that many people were unhappy with living conditions and felt they "had not been listened to".

He said that over the last 40 years there had been "a malaise" of "villages and neighbourhoods where public services have been diminishing, where living conditions had deteriorated".

There were many "people whose status in society had not been sufficiently well recognised. In a cowardly way, we had got used to it and everything seemed to suggest that we had forgotten them.

Macron and his establishment are simply testing how far they can push the French working class until they reach breaking point.

Not only did they do that, but they even went as far to see how much pressure it would take until their own police forces reach breaking point. Hence the military being deployed eventually.

France has some of the most police per capita in western Europe, even exceeding the United States. This could cause France to ramp up surveillance and expand their police state and justify it by the fact that France had a terrorist attack.

It is possible that due to the strained police forces, the sleeper terrorists took advantage of the disruption to do their attack. So now the French Government will have less dubious reasoning to ramp up for "national security" and turn France into another Orwellian shithole.

Macron is quite the contrary, not out of touch with the population. He is measuring them thoroughly so he and the establishment can plan ahead more accurately to reducing individual rights in France.

The sad part is, a lot of those Gilets Jaunes will calm down once Macron raises the minimum wage, cuts the fuel tax... It's all temporary, next time when he pushes the people into the corner, he and the government will be ready to beat down all opposition. They will have their newly revised and "upgraded" police state ready to deploy, and a broken society...

The migrants are there to sequester society and give meaning to a state apparatus that takes away more from the working class to give to these migrants, hence giving justification for higher taxes to aid all the impoverished and "feeble".

Some very manipulative people working at the higher echelons of power, and they are actually collecting the needed results in order to press on with their plans.

This, it's really just showmanship to make them all back down.

He'll throw some bread crumbs and the support will dry up. The actual problem of him being a massive banking shill and the political sphere being disconnected from the working class isn't going to go away. The deteriorating relationships within the middle class aren't going to go away. All of it is a calculated move to push the country to the brink to maintain the most profit.

The worst part is: This is really just a testbed for the modern world to see how far a western country can be pushed. We'll start to see the policy implementations used elsewhere after it gets refined in France.

The White House is dropping its effort to strip CNN reporter Jim Acosta of his press credentials, a defeat for President Trump in his campaign against the news media.

The reversal comes after the White House notified Acosta last Friday it may renew its attempts to revoke his press pass after a judge's order restoring it expired. The White House set a Sunday deadline for Acosta to object and said it would make a final decision by 3 p.m. on Monday.

"Having received a formal reply from your counsel to our letter of November 16, we have made a final determination in this process: your hard pass is restored," the White House said in a new letter to Acosta.

The White House Correspondents' Association (WHCA) said the administration "did the right thing" in restoring Acosta's pass, but criticized its new press-conference rules.

"For as long as there have been White House press conferences, White House reporters have asked follow-up questions. We fully expect this tradition will continue," said WHCA President Olivier Knox, adding the group had "no role in crafting" the rules.

"We will continue to make the case that a free and independent news media plays a vital role in the health of our republic."

The development marked the end of a nearly two-week long saga that began when the White House suspended Acosta's credentials on Nov. 7 following a contentious exchange with Trump at a post-election news conference.

Several media organizations have scoffed at the White House's arguments, saying that past presidents have all dealt with aggressive coverage without pulling reporters' credentials.

Obama never banned a single person from the White House, even retards like Fox News. Calling journalism "confrontational" is just a Republican excuse not to answer tough questions. "You're so disrespectful, I'm not going to answer you." Any time they ask something tough.

Simply being confrontational doesn't make them good journalists, and yes the "You're so disrespectful, I'm not going to answer you." response is a cop out but it doesn't change the fact that Acosta acts like a self righteous piece of shit and as a whole brings journalistic integrity down a peg.

Nothing wrong with anything Acosta did.

You can expect that kind of behaviour from an Acosta. It's in the name.

ACCOST: approach and address (someone) boldly or aggressively.

President Donald Trump was upset after his tense Oval Office meeting with House Speaker-designate Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Tuesday. The revelation comes despite Trump publicly downplaying video footage of him and the two Democrats debating over the federal budget and funding for the wall Trump wants to build on the US-Mexico border.

During a heated meeting in which Trump threatened — and said he'd proudly accept responsibility for — a government shutdown, cameras caught a brief glimpse of the policy negotiations that have slow-walked the president's plan to secure funding for the wall.

"I am proud to shut down the government for border security, Chuck, because the people of this country don't want criminals, and people that have lots of problems, and drugs pouring into our country," Trump said during the meeting on Tuesday.

"So I will take the mantle," Trump added. "I will be the one to shut it down. I'm not going to blame you for it — the last time you shut it down, it didn't work. I will take the mantle of shutting it down. And I'm going to shut it down for border security."

Publicly, Trump said on Tuesday the discussion was conducted in a "friendly manner," despite protests from his Democratic colleagues in the same room. But behind closed doors, Trump was furious.

After the meeting, Trump flicked a folder so that papers were strewn around.

Trump is believed to have been particularly angry with Schumer, a fellow New Yorker, who despite being on the other side of the political spectrum, shares a friendly history with the president.

After being invited by Trump to give a few remarks, Schumer briefly stole the spotlight and delivered an impassioned speech on why a government shutdown would be detrimental.

Then it almost immediately became clear that none of these were true and Farage literally skipped town.
