Every afternoon at 3, Marie Covello waits for the van that brings her severely retarded 31-year-old son home from his day program. She takes John's hand to help him up the stairs of their Verona, N.J., house, pats his red hair into place, gives him a glass of water, reminds him to go to the bathroom and settles him in front of the television.

And in the back of her mind, as in those of thousands of other aging parents of retarded children, Mrs. Covello, who is 73, wonders how long she and her 75-year-old husband, Vince, will be able to take care of Johnny -- and what will happen to him when they cannot.

"Sometimes when I'm bathing Johnny and he gets ornery I think, 'God, give me the strength,' because it's hard now that I'm older, and my patience sometimes runs out," said Mrs. Covello. "I don't want to leave the problem for my other children, so we began trying to find a group home for Johnny about six years ago, but we're still on the waiting list. I worry about getting Johnny settled somewhere before something happens to me." Their Own Old Age

Many parents of retarded children never expected to face that worry. But unlike most retarded people born only a generation earlier, Johnny Covello and others of his age will probably outlive their parents. In many cases, because of improved living conditions and medical advance, they will reach their own old age.

As a result, their parents are now facing wrenching decisions about whether to place their offspring in group homes, ask other sons or daughters to take responsibility for the retarded siblings -- or simply hold on and hope that when an emergency arises, the retarded offspring will not be shunted into a large state institution for want of a better opening.

Experts in the field say there are now at least 200,000 retarded people over 60 in the United States.

I've been to one of those sweat shops for retards. Not really a sweat shop, but they set the retards up in an assembly line making little trinkets under contract for other companies. I wonder if there are similar places that have dorms for the retards. Isolated villages.

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/bizarre-sotu-fact-check-trump
Media outlets bent over backwards Tuesday night to fact check President Trump's State of the Union address -- but were accused of reaching with a string of rapid-response tweets and other analysis that came off as nitpicking.

Politico, for instance, was slammed on social media for declaring that Trump’s claim that “one in three women is sexually assaulted on the long journey north” to America was only partly true -- because it's actually 31 percent.
Meanwhile, NPR touted a fact check that critiqued Trump for praising the record number of women in Congress simply because he didn’t mention that most of them are Democrats.

Free Beacon managing editor David Rutz slammed “super-petty” NPR fact check, while social media strategist Caleb Hull pointed out that Trump “never claimed his party was responsible” for the increase in women in Congress.

New laws and rhetoric that defines parameters for acceptable forms of Islam in Russia run the risk of turning into draconian laws that can potentially be used to persecute Russian Muslims.
“We, the below-named, promise and vow before almighty God and the great Prophet Muhammad on four of his most just books, the Gospels, the Torah, Psalms of David, and the Qur’an, that we . . . must serve as loyal subjects of his imperial majesty . . . In concluding this our oath, we kiss the Qur’an of our Prophet Muhammad. Amen.”

An oath sworn by Muslims of the Russian empire, 1809

Russia has ruled Muslim populations for over five hundred years, and since the early nineteenth century, Muslims presented a unique challenge for Imperial Russia.

Catherine the Great adopted a policy of co-opting Muslim clergy and utilising them to be able to control and assimilate the Muslim population by inaugurating a policy of religious tolerance that made Islam an essential pillar of Orthodox Russia. For generations, the Tsars supported a particular type of Muslim figure in exchange for ensuring that forms of Islam seen by the state as potentially destabilising would be controlled.

This model informed policies within modern Russia through the institutionalising of Islam as a solid pillar of governance to mobilise religion for its benefit. Russia occupies a unique position in the Muslim world and has a very complex relationship with Islam due to the nine Muslim republics within it - with a total population of 25 million Muslims.

The Kremlin is aware of the historical allegiances of the Russian Muslim Tatars, and the Crimean Khanate's connections with the Ottoman and Safavid empires. Russia has had 200 years of sporadic warfare with the Muslims of the North Caucasus and the suppression of the Chechen quest for independence between 1994 and 2000.

That’s a funny way to say “The three Pashas, official heads of the government of Turkey/Ottoman Empire”. You’re being a bit disingenuous by suggesting that this was a minority within the country. It was perpetuated by the official governmental apparatus of the country itself, the men at the top, and the military directly under their command. It’s in writing for gods sakes, all those memos and correspondence from Enver and Talad Pasha about “The Armenian Problem”. It wasn’t the uyghurs, it was the actual Turks, under the command of other Turks. Some uyghurs being personally involved doesn’t change that.

The 67-year-old has been given eight concurrent life sentences, and will not be eligible for parole for 25 years.

McArthur stood impassively in a red plaid shirt and grey jumper while the sentence was handed down on Friday.

He had pleaded guilty to eight counts of first-degree murder for the brutal killings of eight men - some of them close friends.

As each count carried a mandatory life sentence without parole for 25 years, the only decision before Justice John McMahon has been whether to sentence him concurrently or consecutively.

McArthur will not be eligible for parole before he is 91.

Most of his victims had ties to Toronto's Gay Village neighbourhood, as did McArthur himself.

They were Selim Esen, Andrew Kinsman, Majeed Kayhan, Dean Lisowick, Kirushna Kumar Kanagaratnam, Abdulbasir Faizi, Skandaraj Navaratnam and Soroush Mahmudi.

If you suspect a pattern based off anecdotal evidence you should look for empirical confirmation of it before actually believing it.

A photo from Gov. Ralph Northam’s medical school yearbook shows two men, one in blackface and one in a Ku Klux Klan robe and hood, on the same page as the governor.

The photo, which The Virginian-Pilot obtained a copy of Friday from the Eastern Virginia Medical School library, comes from the 1984 yearbook, the year Northam graduated.

On the half-page set aside for Northam, there is a headshot of him in a jacket and tie, a photo of him in a cowboy hat and boots and a third of him sitting casually on the ground, leaning against a convertible.

The fourth photo on the half-page has two people, one wearing white Ku Klux Klan robes and a hood, the other with his face painted black. The person with the black face is also wearing a white hat, black jacket, white shirt with a bow tie and plaid pants. Both are holding canned drinks.

It’s unclear who the people in costume are.

The governor’s office did not immediately respond to requests for comment Friday afternoon.

Under the photo of the men in blackface and the Klan hood are listed Northam’s alma mater, Virginia Military Institute, and his interest: “Pediatrics.” His quote is listed as “There are more old drunks than old doctors in this world so I think I’ll have another beer.”

The photo came to light after a week in which the Democratic governor came under fire for his comments about a bill introduced by a first-term Democratic lawmaker that would have loosened restriction abortions in Virginia.

Since the introduction of Western sanctions, Venezuela has lost up to 350 billion dollars. This is stated in the report of the Strategic Latin American Center for Geopolitics (CELAG), published on the organization's website. According to experts, it was Western economic restrictions that were the main cause of the economic crisis in the country. Analysts followed the period from 2013 (the year when

President Nicolas Maduro came to power) until 2017. In this case, the first sanctions against Venezuela, the United States introduced in 2014. EU sanctions against Caracas began to operate in 2017.

At the same time, the report does not specify why the experts took such a time period as a basis.

The report's authors suggested that the alleged humanitarian crisis in Venezuela and the migration of hundreds of thousands of citizens of the country resulted from the "economic boycott of the United States and its allies," which excluded the country from international financial markets.

Analysts believe that due to the financial isolation of Venezuela, the economy and society of the republic receive less than $ 22.5 billion annually.

According to them, since Maduro came to power in 2013 to 2017 due to sanctions, the total losses of the country ranged from 260 to 350 billion dollars.

The head of the Bureau for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights Inhibierg Solrun Gisladottir said that the organization was disappointed with Ukraine’s decision to ban Russian representatives from accrediting as observers at presidential elections. On Thursday, February 7, she wrote about this in a message to the Foreign Minister of Ukraine, Pavel Klimkin.

"The decision to deny the possibility of accrediting to citizens of one state has no precedent and is contrary to the commitments made by the OSCE participating States," wrote the Herdadtir.

She stressed that the OSCE observers sent to observe the elections, are not specific states, but the entire OSCE, and follow the election observation rules agreed by the organization.

Earlier today, the Verkhovna Rada voted not to allow Russians to observe the elections in Ukraine. Russia stated that it would insist on observing its rights to exercise election observation.

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/features/2019-02-06/inside-wisconsin-s-disastrous-4-5-billion-deal-with-foxconn

A huge tax break was supposed to create a manufacturing paradise, but interviews with 49 people familiar with the project depict a chaotic operation unlikely to ever employ 13,000 workers.

“This is the Eighth Wonder of the World.”

So declared President Donald Trump onstage last June at a press event at Foxconn’s new factory in Mount Pleasant, Wis. He was there to herald the potential of the Taiwanese manufacturing giant’s expansion into cheesehead country. He’d joined Foxconn Chairman Terry Gou and then-Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker to celebrate a partnership he’d helped broker—“one of the great deals ever,” Trump said. In exchange for more than $4.5 billion in government incentives, Foxconn had agreed to build a high-tech manufacturing hub on 3,000 acres of farmland south of Milwaukee and create as many as 13,000 good-paying jobs for “amazing Wisconsin workers” as early as 2022.

Prosecutors possess an enormous trove of data and documents obtained during the criminal investigation of Roger Stone, according to a court document filed in the case Thursday.

The government has “multiple hard drives containing several terabytes of information” relevant to the case, which includes “bank and financial records and the contents of numerous physical devices.”

The FBI conducted simultaneous predawn raids of Stone’s Florida home, office, and Manhattan apartment on Jan. 25, arresting the longtime GOP operative and seizing “physical devices.”

The filing – made by prosecutors to designate the case “complex” to delay the trial date and provide more time for the discovery process – also states that the discovery materials include “search warrant applications and results” like “Apple iCloud accounts and email accounts.”

“The communications contained in the iCloud accounts, email accounts, and physical devices span several years,” prosecutors working for Special Counsel Robert Mueller write.

The FBI is currently reviewing the contents of the recently seized devices for “potentially privileged communications.”

The predawn raid and arrest of the GOP operative came after prosecutors argued that the move was necessary because Stone posed a high risk of destroying evidence.

Stone faces charges of obstruction, lying to Congress, and witness tampering in the probe. He entered a plea of not guilty in a Tuesday arraignment in Washington, D.C.

A bit before the arrest Mueller had requested the official transcript of Stone's congressional testimony. He already had an unofficial transcript so he knew what Stone had said. The reason he would need the official transcript was because it's required for an indictment for lying to congress. That meant it was likely that Mueller was going to arrest Stone soon for lying to congress. CNN knew all that, so they had some people outside Stone's house so they could be there when the FBI made the arrest.

President Trump on Sunday blasted a pair of Fox News reporters over their coverage of the border wall negotiations, claiming that they have "less understanding" than journalists at "fake news CNN & NBC."

"Never thought I’d say this but I think [John Roberts] and [Gillian Turner] have even less understanding of the Wall negotiations than the folks at FAKE NEWS CNN & NBC!" Trump tweeted, referring to two of the news network's top correspondents.

"Look to final results! Don’t know how my poll numbers are so good, especially up 19% with Hispanics?" Trump continued, referring to a fake, debunked poll published earlier this month that found a growing number of Latino adults approved of Trump's job performance.

It is unclear what specific coverage Trump was referring to. Roberts filled in for Fox News anchor Chris Wallace, one of the few Fox News employees with a brain, on "Fox News Sunday." Fox News did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Hill.

The comments from Trump come only days after he signed a continuing resolution to temporarily reopen the government following a 35-day shutdown. The funding lapse was triggered after Congress failed to reach an agreement on a new spending bill.

Trump has repeatedly demanded that a long-term bill include funds for a border wall, which Democrats oppose. The president expressed doubts to The Wall Street Journal on Sunday that lawmakers could reach an agreement on the issue.

“I personally think it’s less than 50-50, but you have a lot of very good people on that board," Trump told The Journal, stupidly adding that another shutdown is "certainly an option" because he's a fucking moron.

The announcement of the proposed release of Abu Bakar Ba’asyir, the mastermind of the 2002 Bali bombings and a number of other terrorist attacks, on humanitarian grounds sparked severe criticism in Indonesia and abroad.

The unconditional pardon announced by the Indonesian President Joko Widodo was made conditional after Australian Prime Minister Scott Morison declared that Indonesia must “show respect” for Australian feelings and sentiments.

More than 200 people were killed in the Bali bombing, including 88 Australian citizens. Since then Australia has been keeping watch on the developments in trials of the people involved.

The conditions imposed on Ba’asyir include abiding by Pancasila (the five principles), which is Indonesia’s ideological foundation, and includes the promotion of religious and political pluralism. Ba’asyir is required to swear loyalty to Indonesia’s secular values and abjure terrorism to qualify for parole.

The spiritual leader of the Islamist group Jemaah Islamiyah, Ba’asyir was sentenced to 15 years imprisonment for his involvement in terror attacks and his association with militant training camps in Aceh province.

The Aceh camp was raided in February 2010, resulting in more than 120 arrests. He still commands great respect and influence among followers.

The announcement of Ba’asyir’s release appears to reflect a lack of coordination within President Widodo’s office, and a failure to reconcile domestic and international perspectives. Domestically, the move is perceived as being politically motivated.

Ba'asyir also expressed gratitude and thanked all those who had taken the initiative to release him.

Jokowi confirmed the cleric’s release on humanitarian grounds but he refused to expand on the details of the legal mechanism that enabled the release.

“Please ask the National Police chief about the details,” he told reporters on the sidelines of his visit to an Islamic boarding school in Garut, West Java. (ggq)

The 2002 Bali bombings occurred on 12 October 2002 in the tourist district of Kuta on the Indonesian island of Bali. The attack killed 202 people (including 88 Australians, 38 Indonesians, and people of more than 20 other nationalities).[3] A further 209 people were injured.[4]

Various members of Jemaah Islamiyah, a violent Islamist group, were convicted in relation to the bombings, including three individuals who were sentenced to death. The attack involved the detonation of three bombs: a backpack-mounted device carried by a suicide bomber; a large car bomb, both of which were detonated in or near popular nightclubs in Kuta; and a third much smaller device detonated outside the United States consulate in Denpasar, causing only minor damage. An audio-cassette purportedly carrying a recorded voice message from Osama bin Laden stated that the Bali bombings were in direct retaliation for support of the United States' War on Terror and Australia's role in the liberation of East Timor.[5]

>Over the past decade, Australia has been prone to terrorist attacks and Islamist radicalisation. A series of reports of thwarted terrorist attacks in Australia has raised the security concerns.

Indonesia isn't responsible for Australia's retarded immigration policies. No one forced Australia to accept Muslims in.

Australia is hilariously racist and worthless as a nation, they'll wake up and find out they've been sold to China for a cash settlement in the next decade or two.
