  • Turkey Has Imprisoned an American Pastor for One Year

    10/06/2017 5:14:51 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 1 replies ^ | October 6, 2017 | Senator James Lankford
    October 7, 2016. It’s been almost one year since Dr. Andrew Brunson was unjustly imprisoned without charges in Turkey. Imagine spending a year in a Turkish prison as a hostage. Unfortunately, most Americans have no idea what is really happening in Turkey. Turkey has long been an ally of the United States, but has chosen to complicate and weaken its relationship with the United States and other free nations of the world through its increasingly oppressive policies. On August 25, 2017, the Turkish government issued two new emergency decrees. Article 74 of decree 694 states that “with the exclusion of...

    We have just heard that Tommy Robinson has been incarcerated in London’s Wandsworth Prison, sharing a cell with Muslims on a wing full of Muslims screaming death threats at him. This is how the authorities react to those who try to warn Britain of the greatest threat to national peace and security since the Second World War. The British Government is hereby forewarned that should any harm come to Tommy Robinson in prison, they will be held to account. The Government has a duty of care to all prisoners, not to go out of their way to place them in...

    Former U.S. Army Master Sergeant John Hatley is now serving a forty year sentence in Leavenworth prison.

I recently spoke with her by telephone. A veteran of six years as an Intel-analyst and Crypto-analyst with the U.S. Army 18th...

    The U.S. military in Iraq has imprisoned an Associated Press photographer for five months, accusing him of being a security threat but never filing charges or permitting a public hearing. Military officials said Bilal Hussein, an Iraqi citizen, was being held for "imperative reasons of security" under United Nations resolutions. AP executives said the news cooperative's review of Hussein's work did not find anything to indicate inappropriate contact with insurgents, and any evidence against him should be brought to the Iraqi criminal justice system. Hussein, 35, is a native of Fallujah who began work for the AP in September 2004....

    GOV. ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER hasn't just abandoned his campaign promise to fight the special interests that dominate Sacramento politics. He has thrown it from his favorite Hummer and driven over it. His craven surrender to the tyrannical prison guards union is so complete that his aides have been subverting the authority of the state corrections chief by consulting union officials on her choices for warden positions and other jobs. And that, according to one insider, is the explanation for the resignation Wednesday of Jeanne S. Woodford, acting secretary of the state Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. Woodford quit just two months...

    Father imprisoned four girls in flat to 'teach them Islam' By Henry Samuel in Paris (Filed: 07/01/2006) A Moroccan father of four girls who imprisoned his wife and children in their flat "in the name of Islam" received a 10-month suspended sentence and was stripped of his parental rights yesterday. The unidentified 45-year-old was found guilty of breaking French law on compulsory schooling for children over the age of six, which applies to three of the four girls - aged four, 10, 13 and 14. The man, from the town of Romans-sur-Isère in the Drôme region, said he had refused...

    RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) - A local school board will ask a newly elected member to resign because he is a convicted felon and is in prison. The board of the Romoland School District voted Tuesday to take steps to ensure that Randy L. Hale doesn't take the seat he won last month while serving time for violating parole. He has convictions for robbery, burglary, domestic abuse and drug possession that date to the mid-1980s. If Hale refuses to resign, the district could contest the election and file a lawsuit asking a court to decide Hale's election status. Hale did not...

    Yahoo had to comply with a demand by Chinese authorities to provide information about a personal e-mail of a journalist who was later convicted under state secrecy laws and sentenced to 10 years in prison, the company's co-founder Jerry Yang said Saturday. Yang, responding to questions during an Internet forum in this eastern Chinese resort city, said he could not discuss the details of the case involving Shi Tao, a former writer for the financial publication Contemporary Business News. Overseas-based human rights groups disclosed days earlier that Yahoo Holdings (Hong Kong) Ltd., part of Yahoo's global network, provided e-mail account...

    As U.S. technology companies pour investments into China, the one thing they’re not exporting is good old-fashioned American values of individual freedom. French media watchdog group Reporters Without Borders called Yahoo Inc. "a Chinese police informant" earlier this week after it gave information about a journalist's personal email account to the Beijing government, which has imprisoned him for 10 years on charges of divulging state secrets. Never mind that those alleged secrets were instructions such as "pay attention to any liaison between overseas democratic elements and individual media editors and reporters inside China." Human rights group Privacy International has called...

    What do Islamist terrorists want? The answer should be obvious, but it is not.A generation ago, terrorists did make clear their wishes. Upon hijacking three airliners in September 1970, for example, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine demanded, with success, the release of Arab terrorists imprisoned in Britain, Switzerland, and West Germany. Upon attacking the B'nai B'rith headquarters and two other Washington, D.C. buildings in 1977, a Hanafi Muslim group demanded the canceling of a feature movie, Mohammad, Messenger of God," $750 (as reimbursement for a fine), the turning over of the five men who had massacred the...

    A St. Paul woman who locked her 13-year-old daughter naked in a basement dog kennel was sentenced Wednesday to 30 days in jail, a period equal to three days for each day the teenage girl was confined, a prosecutor noted. Ramsey County District Judge Kathleen Gearin pounded her fist on the bench for emphasis as she lectured Deborah Lee Cameron. "We use the phrase, 'You would not treat a dog like this,' " Gearin said. "But you did." Cameron, 34, pleaded guilty in April to one count of unreasonable restraint of a child, a gross misdemeanor. Her boyfriend and co-defendant,...

    SANTA MARIA, Calif. — The woman who claims she and her son were victimized by Michael Jackson and his aides admitted Friday that she lied under oath in a past civil case in which she claimed department store security guards victimized her and her son. She vehemently denied, however, that she had any designs on the pop star's fortune. "We will never file a claim against Michael Jackson," the witness said defiantly. "I want justice here." Friday marked a third day of testimony from the woman who alleges that she and her three children were falsely imprisoned at Neverland Ranch...
  • Apostasy rules - JORDAN: King Abdullah cuts a tolerant figure, but Christian converts know better

    In Jordan's King Abdullah, Washington saw the kinder, gentler face of the Arab world. Arriving last month to accept an honorary doctorate from Georgetown University, the 43-year-old monarch told American reporters he supports democracy movements spreading from Iraq to Lebanon. His visit to Washington came just as Arab leaders gathered in Algiers without him. The king skipped a regional summit of the Arab League, even though the most talked-about item on the agenda was a Jordanian peace proposal that for the first time dropped Arab demands that Israel cede all lands it acquired in the 1967 war. Rather than tussle...

    It was a lonely funeral in a faraway land. Just one day after his death, the ashes of Mgr. John Gao Kexian, unofficial Catholic Bishop of Yanti, China were buried. There were no mourners, no tears, and no last rites. Posting a link from Asia News, the website SpiritDaily was one of the few western news outlets to mark the bishop’s passing. Denied religious comforts, the affection of his blood relatives or visitors from the outside free world, Bishop Gao languished, largely forgotten in prison for five years. In the news blackout that sealed off all information about him in...

    SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) - The chief of the feared security service of former dictator Gen. Augusto Pinochet was forcefully arrested at his home Friday and sent to prison with four of his top aides after being convicted in an emblematic human rights case. Retired Gen. Manuel Contreras, who commanded the security service known as DINA, refused a court order to appear before a judge to be served notice of his 12-year sentence and be sent to jail. The judge, Alejandro Solis, issued an arrest warrant and sent police to Contreras' suburban home to arrest him. Police did not disclose details...

    LIMA, Peru - Peru will not abide by an international human rights court ruling supporting the release of Lori Berenson (news - web sites), a New York woman imprisoned for collaborating with Marxist guerrillas, the country's foreign minister said, according to news reports Saturday. The Inter-American Human Rights Court, the Costa Rica-based legal arm of the Organization of American States, is scheduled to deliberate Berenson's case Nov. 24-25 to decide whether she received a fair civilian retrial in 2001. Peru is an OAS member. "If this error were made, the Peruvian state, with legal justification, would take the position of...

    "Symptoms of mental instability suspicious of his 're-education'" "Ho Chi Minh City (AsiaNews) - Father Thadeus Nguyen Van Ly, sentenced to 15 years for speaking out about the persecution of Christians, received a reduction of the term for “good attitude and conduct”. AsiaNews sources in Hué confirm that Fr. Van Ly wrote and signed letters in prison praising Vietnamese socialism and the politics of the Communist Party. According to individuals who were allowed to visit him, the priest showed symptoms of mental imbalance and that he seemed to have been drugged as part of the effort “to re-educate him”. The...
