Housing minister denies Grenfell Tower ‘cover-up’ in car crash interview

While denying a government “cover up” over Grenfell Tower, new Tory Housing Minister Alok Sharma repeatedly dodged questions about the legality of the building’s cladding and the true number of victims.

As anger at the government’s response to the tragedy simmers, Sharma refused to be drawn on whether the cladding on the building was illegal.

Appearing on ITV’s Good Morning Britain on Monday, he was asked at least five times, but only told viewers: “From what we’ve seen it would suggest that the material used was combustible.”

When asked whether a builder putting up the tower block now would be allowed to use the cladding, Sharma replied: “The building regulations are very clear. Any building above 18 metres, this would be non-compliant.”

He was then asked by presenter Susanna Reid whether that meant the cladding is “banned,” to which he said: “It means that you are not allowed to do it.”

Pressed on whether this meant it was “illegal,” he would only say: “Well, you are not allowed to do it, it is non-compliant. The regulations are very clear on this point, and clearly the public inquiry has been set up to investigate precisely what happened and we will get to the bottom of this.”

Cladding is currently being tested on 600 tower blocks across the country. So far, 60 high-rise buildings have failed the safety tests and none of them have passed.

In a separate interview with the BBC, Sharma was forced to respond to allegations of a cover-up over the true death toll. Presenter Sarah Montague tried to get to the bottom of a “gap” in the figures between the number of people thought to have been in the building – up to 600 – and those so far confirmed dead or re-housed.

When asked to say how many people are missing, Sharma dodged the question by repeating the figure of 79, relating to those confirmed dead.

Pressed on the fact that up to 600 people may have been in the building but far fewer have been relocated or reported missing, he said: “That’s exactly why we need to build up the picture and I would appeal to people who are listening to this who know people who were in that building to come forward and tell us.

“It is not about a cover-up, it’s about making sure we have a complete picture.”

He also dodged questions over how many of the families who had lost their homes have been relocated so far.

Refusing to give a number, he said: “We are in the process of talking to the families who were affected.”

Pressed on the issue again, Sharma would only say: “There have been a couple of hundred households that have been affected by this, that we are talking to.”

Sharma’s performance has been criticized on social media, with many accusing him of refusing to give clear answers. His name was trending on Twitter on Monday morning.

Grenfell residents ‘murdered’ by political decisions – shadow chancellor

Grenfell residents ‘murdered’ by political decisions – shadow chancellor

The Labour Party’s second in command, Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell, said Britain’s lack of democracy is to blame for the Grenfell Tower disaster.

Speaking at Glastonbury Festival on Sunday, McDonnell blamed “financial speculation” trumping good housing policies for the June 14 tragedy that is so far known to have left 79 people dead or missing.

“Is democracy working? It didn’t work if you were a family living on the 20th floor of Grenfell Tower,” the frontbencher said during a debate on housing hosted by the music festival.

“Those families, those individuals – 79 so far and there will be more – were murdered by political decisions that were taken over recent decades.”

Thousands more people have since been displaced in London and other cities, where tower blocks were found to be covered in combustible cladding similar to that used in Grenfell.

It is believed the metal sheets and insulation used in the building’s refurbishment in 2014 were in part to blame for the fire’s violent spread.

The Kensington and Chelsea borough council, which was responsible for Grenfell Tower’s Lancaster estate, as well as the Tenant Management Organisation (TMO), have been severely criticized for the response to residents’ concerns over fire safety in the building.

“The decision not to build homes and to view housing as only for financial speculation rather than for meeting a basic human need made by politicians over decades murdered those families,” McDonnell said.

“The decision to close fire stations and to cut 10,000 firefighters and then to freeze their pay for over a decade contributed to those deaths inevitably, and they were political decisions.”

Cladding from all the 60 high-rise buildings subjected to fire safety exams have failed tests. An estimated 600 tower blocks across England have used the materials.

Conservative Housing Minister Alok Sharma complained about the politicization of the tragedy.

“It is very disappointing that people should want to turn this into a party political issue. What I am sensing is that what the nation demands is that we work together and make sure we keep people safe,” the MP told the BBC.

The list of cities with buildings declared unsafe has grown over the last few days, with residents in London, Manchester, Plymouth, Sunderland, Norwich, Doncaster, Portsmouth, and Stockton-on-Tees being warned about the hazardous situation they live in.

Insurance warnings

Insurers were found to have warned government officials about the dangers of flammable external surfaces on buildings, a mere month before the Grenfell disaster.

A statement by the Association of British Insurers published in the Financial Times revealed on Sunday that the body had been calling on Prime Minister Theresa May’s ministers to review fire-safety regulations since 2009. Last May, it specifically warned about the risks of cladding in high rise buildings.

Uber driver charged on suspicion of raping female passenger in Santa Ana

An Uber driver has been charged on suspicion of raping a passenger in Santa Ana while she was intoxicated, authorities said Wednesday. Angel Sanchez, 36, of Costa Mesa faces one felony count of rape of an intoxicated victim, the Orange County District Attorney’s Office said, and up to eight years in prison if convicted. Prosecutors said the woman was at a company gathering in Newport Beach on March 30 when colleagues requested an Uber ride for her to her Santa Ana home. Sanchez picked up the woman in a 2016 Toyota Sienna and took her to a street near her home where he sexually assaulted her in the vehicle, prosecutors said.. The charge comes as Orange County attorneys and John Wayne Airport staffers are saying they will reassess the airport’s agreement with Uber in the wake of allegations that the company failed to investigate complaints filed against drivers contending they were driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

House of Saudi Cards: The Inside Story

Just when geopolitical practitioners were betting on regime change in Qatar – orchestrated by a desperate House of Saud – regime change ended up happening in Riyadh, orchestrated by Warrior Prince, Destroyer of Yemen and Blockader of Qatar, Mohammad bin Salman (MBS).

Considering the impenetrability of that desert petrodollar family oligarchy impersonating a nation it’s up to a few foreigners granted access to make sense of the latest Arabian Game of Thrones. It also does not help that the “largesse” of Saudi – and Emirati – lobbies in Washington reduces virtually every think tank and hack in sight to abject sycophancy.

It sounds as though the royal House of Saud is about to implode, but not before it does a great deal more regional damage than it has already done in Yemen, which has been viciously savage, and was very much the brain-child of Prince Mohammad bin Salman.

The Saudi/UAE "conditions" to which Qatar is supposed to accede by 2 July (one week from today" are untenable to both Qatar and Turkey, which has about 3,000 troops on the ground here, and a military base.

Week after next week is the 4th of July Independence Day holiday in the United States; if Prince Salman moves against Qatar militarily, my guess would be that it would be on or around that date, when Americans are distracted with 4th of July festivities.

And I have to wonder; should that happen, what are the standing orders which have been given to the commanders of nearly 10,000 US military personnel working in Qatar?!?

Yemen Now Faces 'The Worst Cholera Outbreak In The World,' U.N. Says

Seized by violence and teetering on the edge of famine, Yemen is grappling with another danger that threatens to outpace them both: cholera.

"We are now facing the worst cholera outbreak in the world," international health authorities said in a statement Saturday.

Anthony Lake, executive director of UNICEF, and Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organization, say that "more than 1,300 people have died — one quarter of them children — and the death toll is expected to rise."

They suspect that is because Yemen now has upwards of 200,000 cases to grapple with, and that number is growing quickly — by a rate of roughly 5,000 cases a day.

"And geographically, it is expanding," Mohamed El Montassir Hussein, Yemen director for the International Rescue Committee, told NPR's Jason Beaubien earlier this month. "It's not a small area. It's almost the whole country."

What is interesting is what this article doesn't say; which is, that as a result of US-enabled, Saudi blockade of Yemen's ports, which means food cannot get it, Yemeni children are dying from complications of malnutrition.

Images: Yemeni children dying from malnutrition

The Saudis and their American backers are not idiots; they knew that by creating this massive state of malnutrition in Yemen's kids, they were deliberately creating a condition where diseases would thrive, and cholera took up their invitation.

Another possible answer to the question of how this epidemic got so out of control so quickly, is the deliberate poisoning of Yemeni water systems with this disease; it would not have been the first time, historically, this has happened:

During the closing stages of the Rhodesian Bush War, the Rhodesian government resorted to use chemical and biological warfare agents. Watercourses at several sites inside the Mozambique border were deliberately contaminated with cholera. These biological attacks had little impact on the fighting capability of ZANLA, but caused considerable distress to the local population. The Rhodesians also experimented with several other pathogens and toxins for use in their counterinsurgency. [67]

Collective punishment is a war crime, period, end of discussion; and yet, the Saudi, US-enabled genocide in Yemen, including the assassination of innocent civilians; the blockade of ports creating malnutrition deaths in Yemen's kids, the subsequent diseases, like cholera, and the used of depleted uranium weapons, and the subsequent birth defects; cancers; and still births, continues here, unabated.

Closing Bank Accounts: Israel’s New Policy to Displace Palestinians Out of Jerusalem

Israel is closing the bank accounts of Arab institutions in Jerusalem in an effort to displace Jerusalemites and force them out of the city, the Department of Jerusalem Affairs has said.

In a press release, the organisation said the Israeli occupation’s moves against social, cultural, educational, relief, housing, legal or engineering institutions were political and go hand in hand with the Israeli policy of collective punishment against the defenseless Palestinian civilians in order to Judaise the city by force.

How completely typical of Tel Aviv; an economic component to Israel's "Final Solution" of the "Palestinian Problem".

Lily Allen: We Can’t Gaslight an Entire Community Like This… That’s What’s Happening

In the maelstrom that has followed the Grenfell Tower fire, it has fallen to a perhaps unlikely figure to speak up for the residents and ask searching questions of the authorities.

Lily Allen lives in the shadow of the tower block and witnessed the unfolding tragedy in the early hours of June 14. Since then, she has been a constant presence at the scene, helping the victims and attempting to understand their concerns, but also giving commentary on the relief efforts and exploring the reasons behind the disaster.

To the people who managed Grenfell Tower, the people living there were simply ...expendable. Decisions could be made about building materials, like the very flammable cladding which were profoundly, amazingly stupid, and short sighted.

The investigation here should be criminal in nature, not civil, and those people who willingly, and knowingly, made these decisions punished, severely, and the people of the UK should never have to live in unsafe housing again.

Lily Allen is a heroine to me, and I am sure, to many of those who had families, now lost, from this horrendous fire.

Trump’s Policy Is Clear: Civilian Casualties Don’t Matter in the War on Terror

? ecent news reports describe a massive increase in civilian casualties at the hands of the US military or US allies. In Mosul, Iraq, hundreds of residents have been killed as US forces join Iraqi troops in the last stage of their assault on the ISIS-held city. In Yemen, the United States is increasing its direct involvement in the Saudi-led air war being waged against the poorest country in the Arab world, as the UN and other aid workers struggle against mass famine and a looming cholera epidemic on top of the thousands already killed and millions displaced. And in Raqqa, Syria, US air strikes and white-phosphorus munitions have led to what the UN calls “a staggering loss of life,” as Washington provides backup to Kurdish and Arab forces now besieging the ISIS stronghold.

“Rarely a day goes by now when we don’t see three or four civilian casualty incidents…around Raqqa....” —AirWars

This... is what "collateral damage" looks like in Yemen, courtesy of US military-enabled Saudi genocide against Yemeni children, killed outright, or maimed for life:

Images: Yemeni children killed or maimed from life, courtesy of Saudi bombings.

And the reason I keep posting images like this is, that in Yemen and Iraq, the US government and military are partners in war crimes.

US-Led Airstrikes Killed 472 Civilians in Syria in the Past Month

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has issued a report today covering the civilian death toll of US-led coalition airstrikes in Syria over the past month, from May 23 to June 23, reporting at least 472 civilians, the largest in any 30-day period since the US started bombing Syria in 2014.

The attacks covered two provinces in Syria, with 222 civilians killed in Deir Ezzor, and the other 250 civilians killed in the Raqqa Province. Strikes against the area immediately surrounding Raqqa were nominally done in support of the Kurdish YPG’s advance on ISIS’ capital, the city of Raqqa.

In Deir Ezzor, much of the death toll was in airstrikes against buildings in the city of Mayadin, where huge numbers of civilian relatives of ISIS fighters were said to be killed, many of them young children. Over the two provinces, the Syrian Observatory counted 137 children killed in the US-led attacks.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights is a propaganda front, funded by the EU.

Document:The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights is a Propaganda Front funded by the EU

That being said, I would suspect that these numbers are very conservative, relative to the actual number of deaths created by US assaults in Syria.

Turkey to stop teaching Darwin’s theory of evolution in high schools

TURKEY will stop teaching Darwin’s theory of evolution in high schools, deeming it controversial and difficult to understand, a senior education official says.

Critics say President Tayyip Erdogan and the Islamist-rooted AK Party are undermining modern Turkey’s secular foundations by pushing a conservative agenda, including tighter regulation of alcohol and other restrictions, since coming to power in 2002.

A chapter entitled Beginning of Life and Evolution will be deleted from the standard biology textbooks used in schools and the material will be available only to students who go on to university studies from age 18 or 19, Alparslan Durmus, head of the national education board said in an online address this week.

The American comedian Ron White has a one-liner which absolutely applies here: "You can't fix stupid."

And this ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid move has obviously been done to dumb down Turkish high school students by people who utterly do not understand the incontrovertible science of evolution.

Preparing For War? US House Wants To Create First New Military Branch Since 1947

There’s currently a push in the halls of Washington D.C., to establish a new branch of the military by 2019, one whose focus would be operations among the stars. Proposed legislation by House representatives would create a “Space Corps” that would serve “as a separate military service within the Department of the Air Force.”

It would be the first branch added to the military since 1947 when the Air Force was officially established.

On Tuesday, the top two lawmakers of the Strategic Forces Subcommittee, Representatives Mike Rogers and Jim Cooper, added the legislation to the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). The subcommittee oversees military space operations and works within the umbrella of the House Armed Services Committee.

“There is bipartisan acknowledgement that the strategic advantages we derive from our national security space systems are eroding,” Rogers and Cooper said in a joint statement.

This concept makes sense, at a lot of levels.

NSA USES TRICK TO SPY ON AMERICANS

The government is spying on most Americans through our computers, phones, cars, buses, streetlights, at airports and on the street, via mobile scanners and drones, through our credit cards and smart meters, televisions, dolls, and in many other ways.

Yesterday, ZDNet reported that the NSA uses a trick to get around the few flimsy American laws on spying … they shuttle internet traffic overseas so they can pretend they’re monitoring foreign communications:

A new analysis of documents leaked by whistleblower Edward Snowden details a highly classified technique that allows the National Security Agency to “deliberately divert” US internet traffic, normally safeguarded by constitutional protections, overseas in order to conduct unrestrained data collection on Americans.

This... is why intelligent people either encrypt their communications securely, or only say very vanilla stuff in their emails or social media.

TWO ITALIAN ZOMBIE BANKS TOPPLED FRIDAY NIGHT

When banks fail and regulators decide to liquidate them, it happens on Friday evening so that there is a weekend to clean up the mess. And this is what happened in Italy – with two banks!

It’s over for the two banks that have been prominent zombies in the Italian banking crisis: Veneto Banca and Banca Popolare di Vicenza, in northeastern Italy.

The banks have combined assets of €60 billion, a good part of which are toxic and no one wanted to touch them. They already received a bailout but more would have been required, and given the uncertainty and the messiness of their books, nothing was forthcoming, and the ECB which regulates them lost its patience.

In a tersely worded statement, the ECB’s office of Banking Supervision ordered the banks to be wound up because they “were failing or likely to fail as the two banks repeatedly breached supervisory capital requirements.”

The Euro itself is set to fall and fail; it not a matter of if, but when.

FLIMSY EVIDENCE AND FRINGE SOURCES LAND PEOPLE ON SECRETIVE BANKING WATCHLIST

A CORPORATE DATABASE used by banks and other institutions to screen clients for crimes such as money laundering and terror financing has labeled dozens of U.S. citizens as connected to terrorism on the basis of outdated or unsubstantiated allegations. An analysis of a 2014 copy of the database, which is known as World-Check, also indicates that many thousands of people, including children, were listed on the basis of tenuous links to crime or to politically prominent persons.

The database relied on allegations stemming from right-wing Islamophobic websites to categorize under “terrorism” people and groups like the Council on American-Islamic Relations, several mosques, and national and regional Islamic organizations.

That’s exactly what some Southampton University researchers are counting on.

In an effort to make an improved vaccine to “protect” vulnerable parties against whooping cough, the researchers are looking to pay people as much as £3,526 ($4499.33 at today’s exchange rate) to be infected with the disease and then live in isolation units for 17 days. This means that not only do volunteers get sick on purpose, but they also get to help create dangerous vaccines that parents will be strong-armed into giving their children for years to come.

First India Bans Cash, Now It’s Targeting Gold

By Jeff Paul

In November of last year, India banned certain cash notes in a bold move to force businesses into the banking system to better harvest more taxes from its livestock. Now, under the guise of “improving transparency” and forming a “common market,” India has begun targeting gold with new taxes, regulation, and incentives for citizens to turn over their undeclared gold to the financial sector...

Trump Admin Set to Expand Number of Civilians Killed by Drone Strikes

By Nicholas West

The United States drone program by all objective analysis has not been a precision instrument for killing terrorists. Instead, the program has reversed long-standing policies of basic international human rights and rules of war by implementing pre-emptive killing without due process.

After years of Obama’s drone strikes that independent watchdog group Airwars estimated to have been ten times the number as those of George Bush before him, the political pendulum has swung back to the right, but the killing of civilians continues to accelerate under Obama’s supposed arch nemesis Donald Trump.

Now, however, all pretense at protecting innocent lives is about to be cast off and the killing will become inexplicably worse as the Trump admin reportedly seeks to do away with a clause contained in the Presidential Policy Guidance known as “near certainty.”..

Russia Hacking Allegations Driven By a Serial Liar

Today’s lengthy Washington Post’s story makes it clear that former CIA boss John Brennan is largely responsible for driving the claim that Russia hacked the election.

But Brennan is a proven, documented liar. He was busted for lying to Congress and the American public by claiming that the CIA wasn’t spying on the Congressional investigation into torture … when it was.

Indeed, the Washington Post called on Brennan to be fired for lying.

A Surprising Number Of Men In Washington State Aren’t Registered For The Draft. That’s A Felony

Dropping Like Flies: US Marine F-35s Software Malfunction Grounds More Jets

“Some anomalies” with the F-35B’s Autonomous Logistic Information System (ALIS) forced the US Marines in Yuma, Arizona, to “temporarily suspend” F-35B operations, the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing said on Friday.

Golan Heights, Israel, Oil and Trump

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was one of the first heads of government to go to the United States to meet Donald Trump on February 16, in Trump’s new role as President. After the event major media focused on the themes of Israeli settlements in the West Bank, the Iran nuclear deal or a Palestine two-state solution.

Virtually no mention was made by CNN or other US mainstream media of the most strategic point the two discussed. Netanyahu asked the US President to recognize the Israeli illegal occupation of Syria’s Golan Heights,1 something no US President has done since Israel openly declared it theirs in 1981.

Nasrallah: Saudis too weak to wage war on Iran

“The goal of the recent incidents is to forget the cause of Palestine,” Nasrallah said while addressing a ceremony held in southern suburbs of Beirut.

The ceremony was held to mark the International Quds Day which is held worldwide annually on the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan to demonstrate support for the cause of Palestine and express hatred towards atrocities of the Zionist occupiers against the defenseless Palestinians.

As the Saudi rulers have acknowledged, they are trying to take war into Iran with the help of the Takfiri groups., Nasrallah added.

Iran nuclear chief warns US over support for Saudi Arabia: British daily

Writing in the Guardian, Ali Akbar Salehi said “lavish arms purchases” by regional actors – a reference to the Saudi purchase of $100bn of US arms during Donald Trump’s recent visit to Riyadh – would be seen as provocative in Tehran and that it would be unrealistic to expect Iran to remain “indifferent”.

Kansas jury awards $218M to farmers in Syngenta GMO suit

A Kansas federal jury awarded nearly $218 million on Friday to farmers who sued Swiss agribusiness giant Syngenta over its introduction of a genetically engineered corn seed variety.

Syngenta vowed to appeal the verdict favoring four Kansas farmers representing roughly 7,300 growers from that state in what served as the first test case of tens of thousands of U.S. lawsuits assailing Syngenta's decision to introduce its Viptera seed strain to the U.S. market before China approved it for imports.

The scoop on feds' sweet deal for billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein

Federal prosecutors went on the offensive this month, denying allegations that they bowed to pressure from billionaire Palm Beach resident Jeffrey Epstein and his high-priced lawyers at the expense of dozens of teenage girls he sexually abused.

In their first public comment since 2007 — when they negotiated a deal that allowed Epstein to escape federal charges — prosecutors filed hundreds of pages of documents in U.S. District Court, explaining what led to the now infamous non-prosecution agreement that has been decried as "a sweetheart deal."

Contrary to claims by attorneys representing two of Epstein's victims in a lawsuit against the federal government, Assistant U.S. Attorney Marie Villafana said she and her superiors were trying to help the traumatized young women when they agreed to let Epstein plead guilty to state prostitution charges.

IT’S THE BANKSTERS, STUPID

It’s something Americans should have figured out after the last financial crisis. The source of their misery stems from the policies of the Federal Reserve and international bankers. As usual, though, the establishment media has diverted attention elsewhere and the financial class of modern robber barons continues its pathological looting and will do so until the bottom falls out of the economy.

“While politics in the West reels from a decade of economic crisis and stagnation, asset prices continue to surge on the back of continued rapid growth in G3 QE,” writes Albert Edwards. “In an age of ‘radical uncertainty’ how long will it be before angry citizens tire of blaming an impotent political system for their ills and turn on the main culprits for their poverty—unelected and virtually unaccountable central bankers? I expect central bank independence will be (and should be) the next casualty of the current political turmoil.”

Why Is US Government Giving A Pharma Giant Exclusive Rights To A Zika Vaccine Whose Development Was Paid For By The US Public?

It concerns something really exciting and important: a vaccine that shows great promise against the devastating Zika virus, which can cause microcephaly, blindness, deafness, and calcification of the brain in children whose mothers were infected during their pregnancy. If effective, such a vaccine could be a tremendous boon not just for developing countries, but for Western ones too, since the Zika virus has already begun to spread in the US, and Europe. The vaccine was developed at the Walter Reed Army Institute for Research, and the Department of the Army funded its development. Great news, you might think: the US public paid for it, so it's only right that it should have low-cost access to it. Moreover, as an act of compassion -- and to burnish its international image -- the US could allow other countries to produce it cheaply too. But an article in The Nation reports that the US Army has other ideas:

Movements of Container Ship ACX CRYSTAL involved in a Collision with USS Fitzgerald

 

 

This is a data readout from the automated ship tracking system. The collision occurs at the 1:00 mark on the video. It looks like Crystal was on autopilot because after the collision diverts the crash south the ship returns to its base course, then is apparently put on manual and goes back to the scene of the collision, possibly to render aid, but after several back and forth passes in the area, then sails off. The idea that this was a deliberate attack seems far-fetched. Also note that the USS Fitzgerald does not show up in the data even though warships usually are trackable on this system during peacetime operations.

It Wasn't Just The NSA: Germany Spied On The White House For Years

Tags:

One of the profound revelations from the data released by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden was that in addition to spying on its own citizens, the NSA engaged in aggressive espionage on some of America's closest allies, most notably Angela Merkel and her Blackberry. It now turns out that Germany had been returning the favor.

According to Germany's Spiegel, Germany's foreign intelligence service had long spied on numerous official and business targets in the United States, including the White House. The magazine said it had seen documents showing that the intelligence service, the BND, had a list of some 4,000 so-called selector keywords for surveillance between 1998 and 2006. These included telephone or fax numbers, as well as email addresses at the White House as well as the US finance and foreign ministries.

Qatar Shuns 'Unreasonable' Saudi-Led Demands To Cut Ties With Iran, Shut Al-Jazeera

Qatar on June 24 labelled as "unreasonable" demands made by four Arab states to shutter the Al-Jazeera network, cut most ties with Iran, and close Turkey's air base as the price of ending a regional boycott of the small Persian Gulf state.

The demands were included in a 13-point list presented to Doha as an ultimatum by Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates which went well beyond the original reason those states cited for snubbing Doha -- that it was funding and harboring "terrorists."

Hundreds evacuated from London tower blocks over fears of Grenfell repeat

Hundreds of residents of a housing estate in north London have been evacuated overnight after fire inspectors said five tower blocks were at risk following the Grenfell Tower blaze.

People living on Chalcots estate in Swiss Cottage were woken during the night and told to leave their homes immediately after Camden council became the first in the country to order an evacuation of blocks at risk of a similar fire.

After demands aired, solution to Qatar crisis seems far off

Faced with a sweeping set of demands, Qatar insisted Friday it can indefinitely survive the economic and diplomatic steps its neighbors have taken to try to pressure it into compliance, even as a top Emirati official warned the tiny country to brace for a long-term economic squeeze.

Given 10 days to make a decision, Qatar said it was reviewing the specific concessions demanded of the tiny Persian Gulf nation, which include shuttering Al-Jazeera and cutting ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. But Qatari officials didn't budge from their previous insistence that they won't sit down with Saudi Arabia and other Arab nations to negotiate an end to the crisis while under siege.

North Korea Defends Otto Warmbier’s Treatment

Tags:

North Korea responded for the first time on Friday to American accusations that it had fatally brutalized Otto F. Warmbier, the captive college student, asserting he was given medical treatment and treated with respect even though he was a “criminal of the enemy state.”

Mr. Warmbier, 22, who was released in a coma by the North Koreans on June 13 after 17 months of captivity and returned to his family in Ohio, died less than a week later. His death outraged the United States and worsened already-poor American relations with North Korea.

American doctors who examined him after his return home reported extensive brain damage but could not explain what caused the injury.

Gilad Atzmon has theorized that Otto F. Warmbier was operating as an Israeli spy. If so, he may have been given a suicide pill ... supplied by the lowest bidder. I find it odd that in such a contentious issue, there will be no autopsy of the body to determine what actually happened, supposedly requested by the family, but allowing for endless unchecked corporate media speculation on the matter!

Media omits legal status of man arrested for murder of Muslim girl – over and over again

The establishment media’s hasty misreporting and omission of facts relating to the alleged murder of a 17-year old Muslim girl by a 22-year old illegal alien suspect Sunday morning looks like an attempt to push a narrative and not the facts.

Before the details of the brutal murder were able to materialize, The Atlantic did not hesitate in trying to fit the killing into a neatly wrapped narrative, writing “Muslim Americans are mourning—and terrified.”
