  • Peru minister: Strong evidence of police death squads

    LIMA, Peru – Peru's new interior minister says there is strong evidence that police officers ran death squads in 2011-2015 and prosecutors are investigating. Interior Minister Carlos Basombrio's comments were published in a newspaper interview confirmed by his press office. He took office July 28. The newspaper La Republica first published the allegations four days earlier. Peruvian news outlets say more than 90 police officers ranking as high as colonel are alleged to have been involved.
  • ObamaCare architect Ezekiel Emanuel has anounced the ‘optimal age of death’ - you won’t like it

    Democrats seem to love death.  Whether they’re yammering about abortion or “end of life” planning, they just can’t get enough of talking up the myriad ways people can exit life’s stage.  They always claim this is simply a discussion about personal responsibility and individual choice but, since they despise those ideals in virtually every other matter, it’s a hard argument to buy. Enter Ezekiel Emanuel.  Emanuel was one of the chief architects of ObamaCare and is, of course, the brother of Rahm.  Over at The Atlantic, he’s penned an article about his own death and he’s made a shocking announcement...

    A prominent liberal columnist’s admission that the “death panels” Sarah Palin warned about really are and always have been a part of Obamacare caused a blowup Tuesday on Fox’s “The Five,” when host Eric Bolling said “liberal royalty” owes Palin an apology. Bolling was referring to a statement by Time magazine columnist and passionate Obama fan Mark Halperin, who told Newsmax TV on Monday that health-care rationing was an inseparable part of Obamacare’s takeover of the U.S. health system. Halperin himself didn’t use the term “death panels,” but the point was clear enough from the clip. It wasn’t clear enough...

    U.S. Senator Kay Hagan (D-NC) is now attempting to run as far away from her support of ObamaCare as possible. One hollow but high-profile move Hagan recently made was to demand a full investigation of the ObamaCare exchanges. Hagan is also supporting a bill to "make sure that people who like their health insurance can keep it." One wonders, then, why her website still promotes the discredited promise that ObamaCare allows you to keep your insurance. A reader on Twitter, @Jaschrein, alerted me to the fact that this proven lie is still live and being spread on Hagan's official Senate...

    President Barack Obama will nominate the head of a doctors group that promotes his signature healthcare law to be the next U.S. surgeon general, the White House said on Thursday, shortly after Obama proposed a "fix" for the latest problem with the law. Vivek Hallegere Murthy, president of Doctors for America, will succeed Rear Admiral Boris Lushniak, who has been acting as the surgeon general since July, overseeing public health endeavors around the country, after Regina Benjamin completed her four-year term. Doctors for America is a group of 15,000 physicians and medical students that has rallied behind Obamacare through participating...

    The Washington Times ^ | 11/14/2013 | Tom Howell Jr
    Some insurance commissioners already have rejected President Obama’s plan to allow Americans hold onto barebones health plans for another year, saying the move will undercut their attempts to build a balanced insurance system under the reforms. They threw cold water on the plan mere hours after Mr. Obama announced the decision as a way to quash unrest among Democrats whose constituents are losing their existing health insurance. Washington State Insurance Commissioner Mike Kreidler said permitting state residents to keep plans that do not meet Obamacare’s minimum-coverage requirements could upset the state’s carefully calibrated health exchange. “I do not believe his...

She called it a “belt and suspenders” approach that would reinforce, but is not intended to compete with the administrative fix announced by President Barack Obama on Thursday. “We have our own proposal, which we think is really good,” Pelosi said at the Washington Ideas Forum, sponsored by the Atlantic magazine. “I think that we’ll see in the next 24, 48, 36 hours something to the effect of how do we accommodate those people” who have...

    In 2009, leftoids Keith Olbermann and Jonathan Alter were shocked by Seymour Hersh’s claims that Dick Cheney ran assassination squads using military personnel to take out enemy targets – you know, just like the current President... “There’s a lot more that happened in that Bush administration, directly out of the vice-president’s office, that we don’t know about yet,” warned Alter, adding that once the full details become known, they “will curl our hair.” That last line would carry greater power if Alter weren’t bald. And also a screaming hypocrite. Now that Barack Obama is running an assassination squad – directly...

The country is seeing a sudden escalation of brutal attacks on what are being called the 'immorals' - homosexual men and children as young as 11 who have been forced into same-sex prostitution.There is growing evidence that Shia militias have been killing men suspected of being gay and children who have been sold to criminal gangs to be sexually abused.

Newspaper reports say the Jakarta-based Asian Muslim Youth Movement claims the plan is being funded by two Australian-Indonesian businessmen. Human Services Minister Joe Hockey has told Channel 7 Australia was a terrorist target well before the recent increase in conflict between Lebanon and Israel.

    Thirty-eight years after Ernesto "Che" Guevara's death, the revolutionary and his familiar black beret, solemn face and burning eyes remain a surprisingly resilient fashion statement, reports the New Jersey Record. Guevara's image, as drawn by illustrator Alberto Korda, still appears on caps, T-shirts, posters, key rings, books and documentaries. But his status as a cultural icon has grown even bigger after the release of the 2004 film about a young Guevara: "The Motorcycle Diaries." Which is perplexing to those who knew the man - or simply know what he did. In contrast with the image of the idealistic Latin American...

    Take an anonymous Pentagon leak from a “high level military officer,” add an appalling lack of knowledge of history, and compound it with ignorance of special warfare tactics. This process describes the article published by Newsweek breathlessly revealing that a “desperate” Defense Secretary Rumsfeld is “considering” employing the “Salvadoran option” to thwart the “growing quagmire” of the Iraq War. This terrible option, reports Newsweek, was used effectively in the counter-guerrilla wars in El Salvador in the early 1980s. It involves U.S. special operations forces leading indigenous “death squads” to root out and kill or capture enemy military and political leaders....

    Under President Hugo Chávez, the rule of law in Venezuela has been deteriorating steadily -- some would say precipitously -- for a long time. Two recent events have made matters much worse. The Chávez-controlled Congress last week approved a ''media reform'' bill that imposes stiff censorship on one of the few remaining independent institutions in the country. More urgently, the assassination of prosecutor Danilo Anderson 10 days ago has set off a series of arrests and at least two police killings of ''suspects'' under circumstances that are far from clear. Political killing Mr. Anderson was said to be investigating some...

    London 26.11.04 | Last week the top dog, oh silly me, prosecutor of Venezuela was 'bombed' out of this world, in what constituted the first evident political assassination under Chavez. The neofascist leader wasted no time and sent his thugs after the opposition. This week, two more political assassinations have taken place, this time round by operatives of the regime. The first victim is an Antonio Lopez, who according to Venezuela's Minister of Interior, was an extremely dubious character trained in Langley. His parents, former COPEI Senator Hayde Castillo (70 years of age) and Antonio Lopez (69 years old) are...

    Rights group Amnesty International has condemned what it said were summary executions by police, serious human rights abuses and an alarming number of illegal detentions in Haiti. After an 18-day visit to the impoverished Caribbean nation, Amnesty called on the interim government to investigate the police, and urged it and a UN peacekeeping force to carry out a program of disarmament. While acknowledging interim Prime Minister Gerard Latortue inherited numerous problems from the ousted democratically-elected president Jean-Bertrand Aristide, Amnesty said, "None of these difficulties can be invoked by state agents to justify violations of human rights committed in total impunity"....

    During the Reagan era, the media described roving bands of right-wing militias in Central America as "death squads." Why, then, are the terrorists and murderers in Iraq described with the neutral term "insurgents"? These people are doing exactly what the "death squads" did - targeting both random civilians and "collaborators" with the government (including humanitarian and relief workers), yet the media treat them very differently from the Central American thugs.

    Murder Inc. Seymour Hersh, with his usual thoroughness, has documented Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld's latest scheme for Iraq. It is, in short, to set up death squads, trained by Israelis and using Israelis as consultants in Iraq. The Israeli role is supposed to be hush-hush, but not only Hersh, in his New Yorker article, but also a British reporter in the Guardian have confirmed the Israeli role. That will win a lot of hearts and minds in the Arab world. About the only government they hate worse than ours is Israel's. The idea is to hire some of the...

The United States reserved judgment. Iraq's new leaders want Saddam to face the tribunal they established last week specifically to hear cases involving leading members of the Saddam regime accused of genocide and other crimes against humanity. "We will deal with Saddam Hussein," said Adnan Pachachi, a member of the 25-seat interim Governing Council. "He was an unjust...

    ATLANTA — Over the last dozen years I made 13 trips to Baghdad to lobby the government to keep CNN's Baghdad bureau open and to arrange interviews with Iraqi leaders. Each time I visited, I became more distressed by what I saw and heard — awful things that could not be reported because doing so would have jeopardized the lives of Iraqis, particularly those on our Baghdad staff. For example, in the mid-1990's one of our Iraqi cameramen was abducted. For weeks he was beaten and subjected to electroshock torture in the basement of a secret police headquarters because he...

Coalition success can lead to more uncertainties and has served to drive Saddam's death squads to more excesses, the men observed. "Each day, more coalition forces flow into country, and each day more Iraqi forces...

The United Nations is investigating the alleged death squads, which operate largely under the cover of Abidjan's 10 p.m. curfew. The deaths and disappearances have spread fear in the capital and silenced many of the government's political opponents. Hundreds of people have been killed, and an estimated 600,000 have fled their homes since civil war broke...
