Submission Statement

What the actual fuck? Regardless of what your stance on immigration is, this is beyond fucked up. Disturbing. A lawsuit against the U.S. government has been filled today, on behalf of 5 immigrant kids. Here's the relevant bit:

ORR (Office of Refugee Resettlement) places children in residential treatment facilities and detention facilities in which it knows they will be administered powerful psychotropic medications for weeks, months, or years, without procedural safeguards, including seeking their parents’ consent – even those who are present in the United States and readily available to grant or withhold consent to ORR’s medicating their children or other lawful authorization.

The ORR blocks lawyers from representing detained children (?!).

One example:

In the lawsuit filed today in U.S. District Court in California on behalf of five migrant children, a 12-year-old Guatemalan boy, “thriving and happy” before being detained, said that he was repeatedly drugged and treated for depression. He is now diagnosed with major depressive disorder, and will not be released to his sister’s custody until medical personnel declares him “psychologically sound.”

What the fuck?! I urge everyone here to read this. People go on and on about countless child abuse conspiracies, well here's an actual one - orchestrated by the U.S. government. For what reason though? Are they doing experiments on these kids? This is so fucked up.

Submission Statement

Yesterday, the United States left the Human Rights Council over perceived bias against Israel. That, too, was posted here, a couple of times.

The Trump administration withdrew from the United Nations Human Rights Council on Tuesday in protest of what it perceives as an entrenched bias against Israel.

“The Trump administration’s withdrawal is a sad reflection of its one-dimensional human rights policy: defending Israeli abuses from criticism takes precedence above all else,” said Kenneth Roth, executive director of Human Rights Watch. “The U.N. Human Rights Council has played an important role in such countries as North Korea, Syria, Myanmar and South Sudan, but all Trump seems to care about is defending Israel.”

Why do the United States finance the slaughter of Palestinians?

Example: Key U.S. lawmakers want to boost Israel's $38 billion defense aid package

Official report states: $3.1 billion in Foreign Military Financing, of which $815.3 million is for offshore procurement


How can anyone support this? Why are American politicians bending over backwards to please Israel? Why is the rest of the world silent as the slaughter of Palestinians continues?

More recently, Israel proposed a law would make filming or publishing footage of Israeli troops’ interactions with Palestinians punishable by up to 10 years in prison. The ubiquitous ban would cover, not only conventional news media, but also social networking websites, obviously in an attempt to stop any and all documenting of their crimes.

How is this a bad thing? The UN is the new world order.

What was the reason given for the withdrawal? Allow me to quote Kenneth Roth, executive director of Human Rights Watch:

"All Trump seems to care about is defending Israel.”

Make Israel Great Again, I guess

The reason doesn't really matter. The withdrawal does. The UN has been cancerous for the US.

It doesn't matter that the President of America is putting Israel first?

Submission Statement

Denial is the final stage that lasts throughout and always follows genocide. This is censorship and denial. After that video of nurse being killed, Israel decided to step up their game - they are banning filming of Israeli soldiers. News outlets can't film them, civilians can't film them - they can, but could get up to 10 years in prison.

I would just like to applaud this:

Liberal Israeli paper, Haaretz, reacted, announcing “we won’t stop filming, we wont stop writing.” Haaretz, they wrote, will violate the law proudly, continue filming, documenting, photographing, writing about what is happening in Palestine.

And I want to paste this bit:

Israel’s military, according to Politico, receives $3.1 billion from the United States annually, more than any other nation in the world. More recently, according to the same outlet, the U.S. ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, emailed State Department colleagues with the following message: Don’t second-guess the Israeli military.

Our country is fueling Palestinian genocide.

And people think choosing rep or dem in presidential elections will ever change anything...

Sad to say you’re right, my friend.

Is there a way to check if a website is banned in a certain country? Would be pretty useful.

down there

Maybe I'm reading into that but ... what country or region are you in? "Down there" makes me think you're north? Or, again, am I reading into it? I'm probably just overthinking it semantically, but, living in the US, I would think "over there" because Iran is like next door ... down the street. Really far down the street, across an ocean, and far down another street but ... still, you know, over there down the street.

Nice catch. You’re right, I’m not American (but I guess people can tell by my English lol).
