Woman gang raped by Somali refugees blasts plane “mutiny” which stopped one attacker from being deported

#WaronWomen

From Daily Mirror: A woman raped by a Somali refugee has told of her anger after a passenger mutiny on a flight prevented the attacker from being deported. Yaqub Ahmed was one of four men who gang raped the woman in North London when she was just 16.

In October last year, well-meaning travellers on a flight from London to Turkey intervened when they discovered Ahmed was being forced to leave the country, having served a jail term for rape.

Faced with a dozen passengers demanding Ahmed was taken off the plane, Home Office officials relented.
But the footage piled on the misery for the 27-year-old victim, who was horrified to see people support the rapist.

One man was heard in a video clip telling Ahmed: “You’re a free man now.”

The woman, who has suffered post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as a result of the rape, told the Mail on Sunday that seeing the video made her “angry and upset”.

Hitting out at the “bleeding heart” passengers who intervened, she said: “He was in handcuffs, he was being taken out of the country… who are you people to interfere with justice? Fair enough you didn’t know the situation, but now I hope you feel proud of yourselves because you stopped something that I have waited for so long: something that made me feel that little bit safer.”

The four men were jailed for a combined 35 years following the sex attack in August 2007.Ahmed remains in the UK, the Mail on Sunday reports, with efforts to deport him continuing.

The woman, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, said she was lured to a flat in Crouch End, North London, by a youth who claimed her friend was waiting for her after she lost her on a night out. She said she was held down while the men took turns to rape her during the horrific attack.

Neighbours heard her screams and called police, but all four denied rape, forcing the woman to relive the ordeal at a trial.

Ahmed, then 19, Adnan Mohamud, 19, and Adnan Barud, 21, were all jailed for nine years. Ondogo Ahmed, 19, was given eight years for conspiracy to rape. He died fighting for ISIS in 2013.

Voicing her fury at those who prevented the deportation, the woman said they clearly thought there had been an injustice because Ahmed was in handcuffs. But she continued: “Those people should have realised it takes a lot to get someone deported, maybe we shouldn’t interfere.”

Good thing they banned guns: London averaging 40 knife crimes per day

London has some serious crime issues as I’ve blogged about before. See the following:

London Mayor Sadiq Khan has a serious crime problem: City sets record for murders as police launch 100th investigation

London stabbings: Six teenagers attacked in 90 minutes during night of violence

Guess what is responsible for this: London sees surge in knife attacks

Mayor Sadiq Khan refuses to acknowledge the real source of knife crimes in his city: criminals. Instead of getting tough on criminals the mayor focuses on political correctness and blames the lack of taxpayer dollars for this “complex” problem (of course).

From Evening Standard: The shocking extent of London’s knife crime problem was revealed today as figures showed that 40 knife offences a day were reported to police over a two-year period.

A person was knifed to death on average every four days in London in 2017 and 2018, figures revealed, following a Freedom of Information request by the Standard.

The figures reveal the total number of knife offences including those involving stabbings and deaths caused by a blade for the calendar years of 2017 and 2018. Met Police dealt with 29,232 knife offences in a two years.

On average this is about 40 offences a day in London.

The total number of homicides and stabbings fell across the two-year period however. In 2018, the number of knife attacks fell by over 500. In 2017, there was 4,784 stabbings and in 2018 there was 4,246. The number of homicides also fell by 12.

Official statistics for 2019 have not been made available just yet buy Mayor of London Sadiq Khan said the decrease is encouraging. Although the number is still “too high”, Mr. Khan praised London communities and the Met for their work in reducing crime.

A spokesman from the Ben Kinsella Trust, which tackles knife crime through education and campaigning, said the small reduction is not a victory yet.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said officers are working “day and night” to identify and pursue knife criminals.

The majority of the crimes detailed in the figures were committed in Southwark with 1,594 offences occuring in that London borough The borough also had the highest number of knife-related homicides with 17 people being stabbed to death in two years. Bexley was the only borough of 33 to not have any deaths resulting from a knife in the two years.

Mr. Khan said: “Thanks to London’s communities and the hard work of the Met Police, who have been targeting offenders and removing dangerous weapons from our streets, we are seeing some knife crime offences starting to fall, but it still remains too high. We still desperately need the Government to reverse its damaging cuts to the police and preventative services.

He added the level of knife crime “across the country” was still “unacceptably high”.

Limited resources: Elderly in Britain left to go blind due to NHS rationing cataract surgeries

The Straits Times has a report about how the elderly are going blind as they are being refused for eye surgery. Apparently the NHS has limited resources.

Ain’t socialized medicine grand?

From the Straits Time story:

Thousands of elderly people in Britain are left to go blind because of rationing of eye surgery in the National Health Service (NHS), a report revealed on Saturday (April 6).

The Times newspaper said a survey by the Royal College of Ophthalmologists (RCO) found tens of thousands of elderly people are left struggling to see because of an NHS cost-cutting drive that relies on them dying before they can qualify for cataract surgery.

The survey has found that the NHS has ignored instructions to end cataract treatment rationing in defiance of official guidance two years ago.

The RCO said its survey has found 62 per cent of eye units retain policies that require people’s vision to have deteriorated below a certain point before surgery is funded.

With more than 400,000 cataract operations carried out each year, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) concluded that there was no justification for policies that denied patients cataract removal surgery until they could barely see.

The RCO said that refusal to fund surgery was insulting and called into question the entire system through which the NHS approves treatments.

Ms. Helen Lee of the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) said: “Cataracts can have a dramatic impact on someone’s ability to lead a full and independent life, potentially stopping them from driving and increasing their chance of serious injury by falling. The NICE guidelines make it clear cataract surgery is highly cost effective and should not be rationed. It is nonsensical for clinical commissioning groups to deny patients this crucial treatment.

Ms. Julie Wood, CEO of NHS Clinical Commissioners, which represents local funding bodies, defended the restrictions.

She told the Times: “NICE guidance is not mandatory and clinical commissioners must have the freedom to make clinically led decisions that are in the best interests of both individual patients and their wider local populations. The NHS does not have unlimited resources.

Gun control, Chiraq style: 6 shot at baby shower (including 2 kids); witnesses not cooperating with investigators

From MyFoxChicago: (Sun-Times Media Wire) – At least six people were wounded, including an 8-year-old boy and a 10-year-old girl, in a shooting Saturday evening on the South Side that happened while a family was celebrating the upcoming birth of a child.

Gunfire erupted at 6:21 p.m. at a gathering in the 6300 block of South Seeley in the Englewood neighborhood, according to Chicago police. Two men in dark clothing approached the family gathering and opened fire before fleeing on foot, police said.

Both children were taken to Comer Children’s Hospital where their conditions are critical but stable, authorities said. The boy was struck in his back and chest, and the girl was shot in her shin, police said.

A 29-year-old woman was shot in her shoulder and chest, while a 42-year-old man was shot twice in his hip, police said. They were taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where the woman was in critical condition, and the man’s condition was stabilized.

The gunfire also hit a 23-year-old man in his foot and a 28-year-old man in the shoulder, police said. They were both taken to Holy Cross Hospital, where their conditions were stabilized. The older man was later transferred to Mount Sinai Hospital.

Witnesses were not cooperating with investigators, but based on the victim’s profiles police believe the shooting may have been in retaliation from an earlier incident in the neighborhood, police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said. Detectives were reviewing footage from nearby surveillance cameras but had little physical evidence to work with at the scene.

The family was celebrating the upcoming birth of a child, authorities said.

The mother and grandmother of the wounded 8-year-old boy were seen waiting outside Comer, both of them visibly distressed. The mother, whose shirt was stained with blood, was crying out for her child. “He’s just a baby, he’s just a baby,” the mother said, as tears flowed down her face. The grandmother told reporters the boy was in surgery.

Meanwhile, in another shooting, a 13-year-old boy was seriously wounded about 8:20 p.m. in the 1200 block of West 73rd. Two males ran out of a vacant lot and fired shots into a car where the boy was sitting, striking him in the hip, police said. The car drove to 69th and Racine where paramedics were called. The boy’s condition was stabilized at Comer.

Speaking to reporters outside Comer, community activist Andrew Holmes called for prayers for the young victims and urged any witnesses to talk to police. “We’re starting the spring and summer off wrong,” Holmes said.

You go first, de Blasio: “US needs a program for actual redistribution of wealth”

When you gonna start redistributing some of YOUR $1.5 MILLION net worth, Comrade? Because last time I looked, you and your commie wife gave only $350 to charity in 2017. Typical taxpayer, money-grabbing demorat…

As reported by NY Post: While exploring a run for president in Nevada, Mayor Bill de Blasio endorsed a committee to study reparations for descendants of slaves and then went further — saying that the country needs “a program of actual redistribution” of wealth.

A progressive activist asked the mayor his position on reparations at an event in Las Vegas Friday following the endorsement of the compensation plan by other presidential contenders like Elizabeth Warren.

“There’s no question that the issue of reparations has to be taken seriously,” said de Blasio, whose Vegas area barnstorming continues today, stating a clear, public position on the topic for the first time.

“I do believe the way to do it is to form a very public commission and say, ‘What is the way to address this problem once and for all?’”

But, he added, there needs to be a “bigger discussion about income inequality and oppression of other groups including Latinos, Native Americans, Asian and women,” he said at the event organized by the immigrant advocacy group Make the Road.

“I think we’re going to need something bigger even in a way, broader even in a way, then some of the ideas that have been put out there,” he said to the approximately 35 attendees.

“I think a program of actual redistribution which includes much heavier taxes on the wealthy,” he said. “The ultimate resolution has to be profoundly economic,” de Blasio said.

The redistribution comment went further than the message de Blasio has been honing since his state of the city speech in January—that “there’s plenty of money in this city, it’s just in the wrong hands.” During his out-of-city jaunts to early primary states de Blasio has swapped the word “city” for “world” and “country.”

His answer didn’t satisfy the activist who asked the question. “He did what a lot of candidates do, they, ‘All lives matter’ it. They try to broaden reparations for everyone,” Leslie Turner, 37, told The Post after the event.

“It’s actually ok to say, ‘This is actually for black people. We shouldn’t shy away from talking about what reparations specifically for black people could look like,” Turner said.

Other Democratic presidential candidates including Beto O’Rourke and Cory Booker support studying the matter.

Survey shows that millennials trust YouTube stars and bloggers more than their parents

From Daily Mail: Youngsters trust the stars of social media more than their parents, according to new research that reveals how digital habits are sidelining family and friends.

Experts found that 18- to 35-year-olds – the millennial generation – are twice as likely to trust internet ‘influencers’ as a close relative or companion.

Dubbing them ‘gullennials’ – for gullible millennials – researchers found 53 per cent believe advice on Facebook, Instagram and from online bloggers is more reliable than from family and friends when booking a holiday.

Critics, however, warn that online advice is not always unbiased or trustworthy. Companies are increasingly sponsoring posts by celebrities who can subtly use their influence among their millions of followers to increase sales.

As a result, social-media influencers can earn vast sums by promoting lifestyle products and holiday destinations to huge fanbases. The digital agency 383 surveyed 2,032 UK adults on the trustworthiness of internet recommendations.

Spokesman Sukhi Dehal said: ‘It’s a huge concern that the younger generation is so trusting of a source that may or may not be telling the whole truth. ‘Yes, be inspired by social media, but it’s important travellers do their homework with a broader spectrum of trusted resources – whether that’s family and friends or reputable travel-relevant sites.’

Notre Dame women’s basketball coach explains why she won’t hire men

Imagine being able to publicly announce you will hire someone based upon their genitalia rather than their qualifications.

From Fox News: Muffet McGraw, the head coach of the Notre Dame women’s basketball team, explained why she plans on no longer hiring men.

In a recent interview with Think Progress, the 63-year-old Hall of Fame coach, said she would never hire another male assistant coach and believed women can do more to help each other. When asked by the media outlet if she ever planned on hiring another male coach, she said, “No.” McGraw has had an all-female staff for the past seven years.

“Women need the opportunity. They deserve the opportunity,” she said.

On Thursday, McGraw was asked about her recent comments.

“Did you know that the Equal Rights Amendment was introduced in 1967 and it still hasn’t passed?” she replied. “We need 38 states to agree that discrimination on the basis of sex is unconstitutional. We’ve had a record number of women running for office and winning, and still we have 23 percent of the House and 25 percent of the Senate.”

The coach said she was “getting tired” that there aren’t more female leaders across the country and asked, “When is it going to become the norm instead of the exception?”

“How are these young women looking up and seeing someone that looks like them, preparing them for the future?” McGraw explained. “We don’t have enough female role models. We don’t have enough visible women leaders. We don’t have enough women in power.”

“Girls are socialized to know when they come out, gender rules are already set. Men run the world. Men have the power. Men make the decisions. It’s always the man that is the stronger one,” she continued. The coach argued that if jobs in men’s basketball mostly go to men then why shouldn’t it be the same in women’s basketball.

“When you look at men’s basketball, 99 percent of the jobs go to men, why shouldn’t 100 or 99 percent of the jobs in women’s basketball go to women?” the Notre Dame women’s basketball coach said Thursday during her Final Four news conference. “Maybe it’s because we only have 10 percent women athletic directors in Division I. People hire people who look like them. That’s the problem.”

McGraw led the Irish to victory Friday night, knocking out UConn again. The team will defend the national title against Baylor in the championship Sunday night. The legendary coach has two national championships under her belt and more than 900 career wins.

Lock him up: Ex-DC demorat staffer admits to doxing republicans, threatening witness

The “democratic political professional student” worked for U.S. Sen. Maggie Hassan (D-NH) and previously worked for Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA). He also previously worked or was an intern with the office of Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA).

As reported by NY Post: A former Democratic congressional staffer pleaded guilty Friday to federal charges after he posted leaked personal information about Republican senators on Wikipedia, then threatened a witness who caught him.

Jackson Cosko, 27, of the District of Columbia, pleaded guilty to five offenses related to his “doxing” the senators — uploading their personal information online — including computer fraud, making public restricted personal information, witness tampering and obstruction of justice.

Prosecutors said he went after the lawmakers after one senator fired him and he got upset with the others while watching testimony on sexual assault allegations during Supreme Court justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings.

His targets included GOP Senate Judiciary Committee members Lindsey Graham, Mike Lee and Orrin Hatch, as well as Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul.

He faces nearly five years in prison when he is sentenced June 13.

Gillette continues their quest to be “woke” by promoting obesity and transgenders

Back in January Gillette showcased an ad entitled, “We Believe: The Best Men Can Be.

It highlighted what appeared to be toxic masculinity, bullying and the #MeToo movement. In some ways it was shaming men and boys for being boys.

Gillette promoting morbid obesity

They are now doubling down on their obvious progressive agenda with their new Gillette Venus campaign which features fat women and transgender models. From their Twitter:

Venus is committed to representing beautiful women of all shapes, sizes, and skin types because ALL types of beautiful skin deserve to be shown. We love Anna because she lives out loud and loves her skin no matter how the “rules” say she should display it”

Gillette Venus is also promoting the transgender known as Jazz Jennings:

“I think when you’re coming into your own with your identity, shaving is a form of expression,” @JazzJennings__ , the face of Gillette Venus’ new campaign #MySkinMyWay, tells R29. “When I was transitioning, shaving my legs was that first step.”

Jazz Jennings for Gillette, promoting the scientifically impossible

They is NOTHING beautiful about being morbidly obese. Not. One. Thing.

And there is nothing beautiful about promoting the idea that one can physically change their gender because it is biologically impossible.

But you continue down the “woke” slide, Gillette. Just ask Dick’s Sporting Goods how that is working for them.

Perpetual victimhood: Lena Dunham gets a tattoo that says, “sick”

Liberals are miserable creatures. They are self-loathing and forever a victim of something.

So I was not surprised to see on libtard Lena Dunham’s Instagram that she got a new tattoo that says, “sick.”

FYI: Dunham suffers from endometriosis, of which the main symptoms are pelvic pain and infertility. It is not curable yet is treatable.

From her Instagram post:

“sometimes the thing you’re most scared of being called is the best thing you can call yourself. thank you @havenstudiobk for labeling me… and to my sisters in this dizzying but starry slog- i am lasso’d to you!”

Hey, her body, her choice.

Most people would focus on the positive aspects of life. Maybe one who is happy would choose to get a tattoo that says “enjoy life” or “carpe diem.”

But I’m guessing that Dunham isn’t too happy. After all, she already displays a tattoo that seeks some type of approval as it says, “love me.”
