>An Indian pop star, Daler Mehndi, has been sentenced to two years in prison for smuggling migrants abroad.

>Mehndi and six others were accused in 2003 of cheating people of large sums of money by falsely promising to take them to Western countries.

>The singer was convicted on Friday in the northern state of Punjab. But he was released on bail soon after.

>Mehndi is one of the most popular Punjabi singers of the 1990s and early 2000s, and also has a following abroad.

>In 1998 and 1999, he had allegedly taken at least 10 migrants, disguised as dancers in his ensemble, to the United States and returned without them.

>After police in Punjab registered a case against him, about 35 people reportedly accused him of fraud. They said he had taken money from them for taking them abroad but had failed to do so.

>Mehndi said he will appeal the conviction in a higher court.

We've taken your feedback from the poll and are going to implement a new ruleset for /n/. As always, our ability to moderate is directly linked to you reporting posts you see breaking the rules. We may be modifying this ruleset further in the future as we try to tune /n/ into a place that allows the maximum amount of discussion and causes the minimal amount of trouble. If you have questions or comments, find us in irc (rizon.net #/k/) or post a thread in /sug/


If you find yourself prone to fits of rage, are susceptible to trolls, cannot deal with dissension, ignorance, stupidity, or other such afflictions of the internet, I advise you not to scroll down, and to instead visit one of our other lovely boards. By scrolling down you are taking your mental health into your own hands, and the staff takes no responsibility for your inevitable aneurism. You've been duly warned, enjoy your News.

Board Specific Rules for /n/:

1. Thread titles must be nonbiased and a succinct representation of what is in the article. Threads with titles that don't meet this criteria will be deleted. A link to the article is required where possible.

2. Personal Attacks are now banworthy, it is fine to disagree with the content of a post, but ad homs and tripfights will now be met with bans and post deletions, regardless of the rest of the content of the post. So watch yourselves.

3. All posted articles must have national/international relevance. No more "two grannies shot in hoboken". This will be enforced at mod discretion.

  ConcernedCitizen is drafting the official changes, but for now to limit reports I would like to outline a slight rule change:

/n/ is no longer limited to national/international news.

Anything traditionally newsworthy that impacts or potentially impacts people on the international, national, or regional level or is exceptional on the local level can have its own thread.

For local stories with no real impact - we will be crafting a Flawda thread to contain them.

Here is some food for thought:


All other rules remain in effect until further notice.
>> No. 101062 ID: 1fb1a6
Bump to be on top of the Flawda thread.

Threads that dissolve into accusations of schilling and tripfighting will be locked. Don't do it in the flawda thread either or you'll be banned.

6 package bombs, 6 injured and 2 fatalities so far, with another bomb recovered intact. Media has mostly been silent on it and the government is refusing to declare it as terrorism.

>Yet another reported package explosion injured one person in Austin, Texas, Tuesday evening, as law enforcement hunts for a serial bomber that authorities have said is connected to at least six devices.

>The explosion occurred at a Goodwill store on Brodie Lane, the Austin Fire Department said. Police and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are on the scene, and fire crews are evacuating the building.

>A male with potentially serious injuries was taken for treatment; the injuries are not expected to be life-threatening, Austin-Travis County EMS tweeted.

>An unexploded package bomb was discovered earlier Tuesday at the FedEx facility in Austin, Texas, two sources briefed on the investigation told ABC News.

>The string of explosions in Austin, which have left two dead and injured others, has the city on edge and sparked hundreds of law enforcement to descend on the area. Earlier on Tuesday, a package detonated at a FedEx facility near San Antonio, injuring one.

>The Houston branch of the confirmed Tuesday evening that six of the bombs -- five package bombs and one involving a tripwire -- were related. The latest explosion at the Goodwill store has not yet been confirmed as connected to the serial bomber.

I think there was pretty clear response that Russia does not give a single fuck about Britain's fabricated "explanations". Britain is always free to do whatever the fuck it wants without any explanations whatsoever, because, whatever it does, will be met with appropriate response.

>Moscow deems the the Salisbury attack as an act of terror on a Russian citizen, he said.

That's right, everybody forgot to mention that even though the UK spy was under attack, Russian citizen had also suffered from it.


By the way, there's a big suspicion that UK and US are now testing and developing new generation of chemical weapons, since they are falling behind in many other "defensive" technologies like hypersonic missiles and nuclear weapons. Covering it all up with "chemical weapons use" seemed to be a great idea beforehand, but apparently with this case UK went overboard. Now it is even highly unlikely they will be able to accuse Syria of another "use of chemical weapons" to somehow save the their Ghouta "rebels".


>The Novichoks - those thought to have been used against the Skripals - were never declared to the OPCW, and the chemicals never formed part of any control regime partly because of uncertainty about their chemical structures.

Law hasn't been in place a month, the ink isn't even dry yet and already people's rights are being abused. Want to own a gun to protect yourself when there are a lot of people who might be really, really angry at you? Prove to the court that you're mentally fit first. Can't afford a friendly doctor cause you're an orphan? Too bad, lol.
Good luck catching some zzzzz if you ever get out on bail, kid.


Police in Florida are using a new state law to try and stop the younger brother of the accused shooter at a Parkland, Fla. high school from owning a gun.

The Broward Sheriff’s Office said that it has petitioned the courts for a risk protection order that would stop Zachary Cruz from owning a gun, under a new law passed earlier this month, the Miami Herald reported Tuesday.

The law, which was passed to try and prevent mass shootings like that in Parkland, gives law enforcement the ability to ask a judge to remove guns from a person’s home or stop them from buying a firearm until that individual can show a court that they’re mentally fit.

Cruz’s brother, Nikolas Cruz, has been indicted on murder charges in last month’s mass shooting in Parkland that left 17 people dead, and could face the death penalty.

Zachary Cruz, 18, was arrested on Monday for trespassing at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, where the shooting took place.

The implosion began at a TWP compound in Paoli, Indiana, where Parrott’s wife, Jessica, was allegedly having an affair with Heimbach—who is married to Parrott’s stepdaughter from a previous marriage.

Heimbach and Jessica told Parrott they’d ended the relationship, but Parrott and Heimbach’s wife were skeptical. They arranged to “set up” Heimbach and Jessica in a trailer on Parrott’s property to catch them having sex.

Parrott stood on a box outside the trailer and watched Heimbach and Jessica have sex inside, according to a police report. When the box broke under Parrott’s weight, he entered the trailer to confront them. Heimbach allegedly choked him and chased him into a house, where Parrott threw a chair at him. Heimbach hit back, choking him into unconsciousness, according to the police report.

Parrott fled to a Walmart near his home and called police around 1 a.m. Tuesday morning.

After interviewing Parrott, police went to Heimbach’s home, where they met him outside with Jessica who said she was just a neighbor and left. Heimbach went inside and sent his own wife out instead, telling her “to send the police away and tell them everything was fine,” the police report reads. Heimbach “began to raise his voice at her and I heard scuffling and [Heimbach’s wife] yelling,” an officer wrote.

Heimbach’s wife accused him of becoming violent when she refused to dismiss the police. “He kicked the wall, and then grabbed my cheeks, making them bleed, and threw me with the and on my face onto the bed,” she wrote to police. “I have a recording of this.”

Police arrested Heimbach on the spot and charged him with battery, intimidation, strangulation, and domestic battery committed in the physical presence of a child. (The Heimbachs’ two young children were present when he allegedly assaulted his wife.) The police report lists Heimbach’s occupation as “white nationalist.”

Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his longtime business partner Rick Gates have been charged in a 12-count indictment with conspiracy against the United States, conspiracy to launder money and making false statements.

It marked the first criminal allegations to come from Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation into possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia to influence the 2016 election.

Gates did not respond to a request for comment, nor did Jason Maloni, a spokesman for Manafort. Manafort was spotted walking into the FBI’s Washington Field Office Monday morning.

Special counsel Robert Mueller has been told of two discussions between President Donald Trump and witnesses central to the Russia probe, according to a person familiar with the issue.

Trump earlier this year approached White House counsel Don McGahn in the Oval Office and questioned why he wouldn’t publicly dispute a New York Times story published in January that reported the president had ordered him to fire Mueller.

Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe wrote memos describing his conversations with President Donald Trump and other events and has turned them over to Special Counsel Robert Mueller, a person close to Mr. McCabe said Saturday.

The memos, written soon after the events they describe, cover Mr. McCabe’s dealings with the White House and what former FBI Director James Comey told Mr. McCabe about his interactions, according to the person.

That revelation came amid increasingly contentious exchanges Saturday between President Trump and some of the country’s most senior former law-enforcement and national security officials, sparked by Mr. McCabe’s dismissal late Friday.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions terminated Mr. McCabe two days before his scheduled retirement, saying internal investigators found Mr. McCabe made an unauthorized disclosure to the media and “lacked candor” on multiple occasions.

Mr. Trump, in his third tweet on the subject since Friday night, said Saturday afternoon that Mr. McCabe was “caught, called out and fired.” “How many lies? How many leaks?” Mr. Trump said, adding that former FBI Director James Comey “knew it all, and much more!”

Nine minutes later, Mr. Comey responded on Twitter saying, “the American people will hear my story very soon.” He has a book scheduled to be released next month. “They can judge for themselves who is honorable and who is not,” Mr. Comey said.

Mr. Comey himself was fired last May, in an episode that in now under investigation by Mr. Mueller. Mr. Comey testified last year he kept memos of his interactions with Mr. Trump and that he felt Mr. Trump had pressured him to end an investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

>Senior executives at Cambridge Analytica – the data company that credits itself with Donald Trump’s presidential victory – have been secretly filmed saying they could entrap politicians in compromising situations with bribes and Ukrainian sex workers.

>In an undercover investigation by Channel 4 News, the company’s chief executive Alexander Nix said the British firm secretly campaigns in elections across the world. This includes operating through a web of shadowy front companies, or by using sub-contractors.

>In one exchange, when asked about digging up material on political opponents, Mr Nix said they could “send some girls around to the candidate’s house”, adding that Ukrainian girls “are very beautiful, I find that works very well”.

>In another he said: “We’ll offer a large amount of money to the candidate, to finance his campaign in exchange for land for instance, we’ll have the whole thing recorded, we’ll blank out the face of our guy and we post it on the Internet.”

>Offering bribes to public officials is an offence under both the UK Bribery Act and the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. Cambridge Analytica operates in the UK and is registered in the United States.

>The admissions were filmed at a series of meetings at London hotels over four months, between November 2017 and January 2018. An undercover reporter for Channel 4 News posed as a fixer for a wealthy client hoping to get candidates elected in Sri Lanka.

>Although Donald Trump is alleged to have paid porn star Stormy Daniels $130,000 in 2016 to keep quiet about a reported affair that took place 10 years previously, In Touch Weekly has published an interview with Daniels from 2011, before the signing of any NDA, in which she spills intimate details of meeting the then-Apprentice host at a celebrity golf event in Lake Tahoe.

>A frequent theme throughout the interview concerns Trump being taken aback by how smart and business savvy Daniels was, with Trump going so far as to tell Daniels that he wanted to put her on The Apprentice. One of Daniels’s quotes on the subject which In Touch published in the print edition of the story but not online, is particularly striking.

>“We had really good banter,” Daniels told In Touch. “He told me once that I was someone to be reckoned with, beautiful, smart, just like his daughter”

>Trump, one figures, was talking about Ivanka Trump, who was 24 at the time. (His other daughter, Tiffany, would have been 11.) Our now president reportedly comparing a woman he was allegedly sleeping with to Ivanka is just another creepy addition to his long history of going out of his way to sexualize his daughter. Infamously, during a 2006 appearance on The View, Trump complimented his daughter’s body and told the panel, “If Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.” Stormy Daniels and Trump may have only had a fling, but he paid her just about the highest compliment he knows.

Well the Republicans tried to impeach Clinton for lying about getting his dick sucked in the Oval Office.

Also there might be a sex tape and Trump is apparently a sub:
>When Daniels first filed her lawsuit last week I was one of the first to note that it sounds like the agreement might be intended to cover up “dick pics” or either compromising digital evidence of the affair. Yesterday, I reported that Daniels apparently suggested to 60 Minutes that President Trump likes being mistreated or denigrated in sexual contexts. In their most recent communication with Trump’s lawyers, Daniels’ team significantly ups the ante, for the first time suggesting the existence not only of texts and images but possibly “videos relating to the President which she may have in possession.” Let’s call this ‘Stormymat’.

>We should note that according to the October 2016 agreement, Daniels should have divested herself of all ownership rights and physical possession of all this material. Texts, pictures, videos, all forms of Stormymat. It wouldn’t be terribly surprising if she didn’t. It also wouldn’t be terribly surprising that her team is simply raising this possibility to sow terror in the Trump camp and keep them off balance. For now, it seems worth considering that this material does exist and that she has it.

Couple more developments today. Mainly the Trump administration has now become directly involved and is attempting to move the case to federal court, and her lawyer has stated the affair continued after he became president.

>The lawyer representing the adult film star Stormy Daniels alleges that some of the accusations she's making against President Donald Trump occurred while Trump was in office.
>"Is there anything in the litany of accusations -- you would call them facts -- that surround this case that happened while Donald Trump was President?" CNN's Jake Tapper asked Michael Avenatti, Daniels' lawyer, during an interview Friday.
>"Yes," Avenatti replied.
>When asked by Tapper if he could elaborate, Avenatti gave a simple "no."
>Avenatti had claimed earlier Friday in an interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo that Daniels was "physically threatened to stay silent about what she knew about Donald Trump."

Donny's proposed Infrastructure Plan was released in early February, and it's a hand-out to corporations. It's no surprise that this is coming from Trump, who's been playing by the conservative Republican playbook from the start. But it's not just them: as Democrats, esp. 'neo-liberals' have been pushing bailouts of banks, corporate deregulation, subservience to the banks and financial institutions, endless wars and military/police operations (e.g. Iraq, Afghanistan just to name two of the most recent), censorship of free expression e.g. on the internet and through protest for longer than the latest puppet on the cover of People Magazine has been alive. This to me is just a consequence of the consolidation of media control (keep them distracted) and the overlapping ownership and interests of the transnational capitalist class.

>Three men charged Tuesday with illegally possessing a machine gun are suspected of bombing a mosque in Minnesota and attempting to bomb an abortion clinic in Illinois last year, federal officials said.

>While the complaint does not charge the men with crimes related to the bombing episodes, the authorities said that they had gathered evidence indicating that the men were responsible for them. The investigation is continuing, they said.

>One of the men, Michael McWhorter, admitted to the police that he participated in the bombing in Bloomington, Minn., on Aug. 5 and the attempted bombing in Illinois on Nov. 7, a federal affidavit said. Mr. McWhorter said that he and the two other men involved did not intend to kill anyone, but had chosen to bomb the mosque to “scare” Muslims “out of the country” and to signal that they were “not welcome here,” according to the affidavit.

>The men — Mr. McWhorter, 29, Michael B. Hari, 47, and Joe Morris, 22 — believed that Muslims “push their beliefs on everyone else,” the affidavit said. It was unclear whether the men had lawyers.

>“Because of the nature of this case, we’ve seen an overwhelming level of support from our community for the Dar Al Farooq Community Center and the Muslim community in Bloomington,” Chief Jeff Potts of the Bloomington Police Department said at a news conference on Tuesday. “We think that was outstanding. We’re very, very pleased with the progress of this investigation.”

>Agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation arrested Mr. McWhorter, Mr. Hari, Mr. Morris and a fourth man — Ellis Mack, 18 — on Tuesday morning. The authorities say that the men, who are all from Clarence, Ill., were illegally in possession of assault rifles from October 2017 to March 2018.

>The affidavit describes a tangled, hateful criminal enterprise in which the four men from a rural part of Illinois, more than 500 miles from Bloomington, Minn., hoarded high-powered guns, made bombs and committed robberies at a drug dealer’s house and three Wal-Mart Stores.
