    Kurdistan Human Rights Network ^ | 31.05.2018 (5-31-18) | Zanyar Moradi, Ramin Hossein Panahi
    Zanyar Moradi and Ramin Hossein Panahi, two Kurdish political prisoners sentenced to death by the Iranian government, have published an open letter to the public regarding the implementation of the “death penalty” from the history of Constitutionalism to today and stated that various governments regard such penalty as “the most fearsome tool for the elimination of dissents.”In their letter, these two political prisoners who are at risk of immediate execution called on Iranian political and civil activists to investigate the unfounded allegations and anti-humane sentences against Kurdish political prisoners in order to prevent the government from pursuing its current...

    IRBIL, IRAQ — A brother of an Iranian Kurdish man sentenced to death for belonging to a Kurdish nationalist group says the dissident has told a lawyer that he has hours to live after being transferred back to death row.Speaking exclusively to VOA Persian on Thursday, Amjad Hossein Panahi said his detained brother Ramin Hossein Panahi was moved to death row at a prison in the northwestern city of Sanandaj in the past day.

  • Supreme Court rules state law banning political apparel at polls is illegal

    The Supreme Court on Thursday rejected a Minnesota law banning voters from wearing political apparel to the polls, saying it was too draconian in stifling Americans’ First Amendment rights. The 7-2 decision said it may be possible for states to restrict stridently political T-shirts and buttons, but the justices said Minnesota didn’t justify why its law needed to be so broad.
  • California Dems bid to split up state

    Californians likely will vote in November on a long-shot referendum to split their giant state into three – a measure that, while standing little chance of success, would represent a political gift to Democrats. Such a California breakup would upset the political balance in the Senate if it actually happened, and hurt the GOP. According to a Fox News analysis of county-level voting data, splitting California as outlined would create two solid blue states and one leaning blue state. That could very well mean four extra Senate seats for Democrats – plus four more electoral votes in presidential elections. So...

    Soros’ Washington-DC based super PAC gave St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner almost $200,000 to make sure she carried his water once elected. And she has: She’s softened enforcement of crimes and, worse, has used the powers of her office to recklessly pursue an investigation against the Governor. That investigation culminated in an indictment this past week—which means that Missouri taxpayers are, yet again, on the hook for spending taxpayer money for frivolous cases, thanks to George Soros.

  • New And Improved Political Compass: Where Do You Stand?

    IWB ^ | Daniel Carter
    I’ve recently stumbled upon a reimagined political compass that does a fantastic job of illustrating today’s political environment. It is less focused on the perceived divide between the left and the right and more focused on the true divide between the status quo and people desperately seeking change. It was created by Eric Weinstein; a mathematician, economist, public intellectual and Managing Director at Thiel Capital. His new and improved political compass ditches the mainstream narrative and does a better job of showing you who your true political allies and enemies are. First, let’s look at the old political compass as...

    January 20, 2017 Donald Trump is sworn in as the 45th president of the United States. Shocking the world, the former reality TV star and real estate developer defeated both a vast field of Republican candidates and the Clinton machine. Liberals have been melting down all year while the non-status quo president attempts to upend DC and make America great again by focusing on growing the economy as opposed to opening our borders, entering into ill-fated trade deals, and destructive climate pacts that merely aim to signal how enlightened we are as a nation.

    The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration, which oversees the Internal Revenue Service, reports that in fiscal 2016 the IRS closed four cases in which IRS employees were found to have violated a law governing their behavior toward taxpayers and that these violations included “harassing and abusing taxpayers and using obscene and profane language.” In 1998, Congress enacted a law imposing restrictions on the way that IRS employees could treat taxpayers. As explained by the IG, this included a prohibition on an IRS employee contacting a taxpayer at “unusual or inconvenient times,” contacting the taxpayer directly if the taxpayer “has...

    Finally, the American people have a politician who dosen’t care what party your in, but does care whether the job one fills for the people in government is being used with integrity and for the purpose of keeping the people and US on the motto most people believe in. “Justice for All” That hasn’t been the case in the before 2011, and Trey Gowdy moving to the Oversight Committee. A change that has opened the doors to corruption greater than all the US wars put together. Acts that many would call treason have been allowed to go through and pass...

    Pittsburgh Steelers offensive lineman Alejandro Villanueva became the best-selling player in the NFL by midday Monday. Alejandro Villanueva's appearance on the field, as the only Steelers player to leave the tunnel for Sunday's national anthem, led to "confusion" for some teammates, a source said. A spokesman for Fanatics, which runs the NFL's online store, confirmed to ESPN that, over the past 24 hours, more Villanueva gear, including jerseys and name and number T-shirts, has been ordered than that of any other NFL player. Villanueva beat out New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady for the top spot. Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson...

    The Politistick ^ | 09/24/2017 | Matthew K. Burke
    Why is it okay to disrespect the American flag, okay to wear a t-shirt praising communist butcher Fidel Castro, okay to depict cops as pigs, but not okay to wear a Christian t-shirt? Everyone is weighing in in the disrespectful NFL flag-sitters, so I might as well. Here are several points that make the case that NFL owners and the commissioner are utter hypocrites for allowing players to disrespect the American flag: 1) The NFL is a private company — it is not the federal government. Every private company has codes of conduct. 2) The NFL forced RGIII (Robert Griffin...

    It’s not just crazy places like the University of California at Berkeley where surprisingly large numbers of U.S. college students believe that violence and shouting are acceptable methods to prevent people from saying things. Fifty-one percent of all U.S. college students believe shouting is an acceptable response to free speech, and one in five (19 percent) believe violence is an acceptable response, according to results from a national survey of 1,500 students in 49 states and DC. Fifty-three percent of survey respondents said colleges should “create a positive learning environment for all students by prohibiting certain speech or expression of...

    Mere seconds into the celebrity-filled benefit concert for victims of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma did these stars turn the ostensible charitable event into a platform for left-wing sermonizing. Stevie Wonder, who kicked off the show, began with call for unity, but then turned to mock anyone who questioned the global warming theory. "When love goes into action, it preferences no color of skin, no ethnicity, no religious beliefs, no sexual preferences, and no political persuasions," Mr. Wonder began. "It just loves. As we should begin to love and value our planet." But after calling for love, he singled out skeptics...
