‘Star Trek’ actor George Takei fondly reminisces about being molested by a camp counselor

Supposedly conservative Milo Yiannopoulos recently resigned from his editor position at Breitbart after an audio of him extolling man-boy sex was publicized online.

In a 2016 episode of “The Drunken Peasants” podcast, Yiannopoulos recalled being sexually molested when he was a teen but did not outright condemn pederasty — sex between an adult male and an adolescent boy. Yiannopoulos flippantly said young boys “discover who they are” through such relationships and that while those relationships can be sexual in nature, they give the boys “security and safety and provide them with love and a reliable rock where they can’t speak to their parents.”

When the podcast host said to Yiannopoulos, “Sounds like Catholic priest molestation to me,” Yiannopoulos quipped: “I’m grateful for Father Michael. I wouldn’t give nearly such good head if it wasn’t for him.”

After the podcast was brought to light, which led to CPAC canceling Yiannoupoulos’ appearance, Yiannopoulos drafted a lengthy apology on Facebook, blaming his “sloppy phrasing” and denied supporting pedophilia. He wrote:

“I shouldn’t have used the word ‘boy’ when I talked about those relationships between older men and younger gay men. I was talking about my own relationship when I was 17 with a man who was 29. The age of consent in the UK is 16.”

He also clarified that his example of learning oral sex from a priest was a joke to make light of his own sexual abuse. (Source: Celebrity News Update)

The Yiannopoulos incident, however, led citizen journalists to bring to our attention something about which I had not known — a genuinely disturbing interview in 2006 of homosexual actor George Takei, best known for playing Mr. Sulu in the original Star Trek TV series, in which Takei spoke approvingly of pederasty.

In an interview with Howard Stern in 2006, Takei gleefully recalled his first sexual experience when, as a sexually-inexperienced 13-year-old boy, he was molested by an “18- or 19”-year-old counselor at summer camp at Lake Arrowhead in Los Angeles.

Takei said he was alone in a cabin in the summer camp, the other boys were off hiking. Although Takei wasn’t “gay” then, he thought the 18-year-old camp counselor was “pretty attractive” — “muscled,” “toned,” with “blonde, tanned forearms”. Takei said the counselor “puts his arm around my shoulders . . . . Then he started, you know, touching the private parts.” The older male gave Takei “a hand job” — Takei’s “first orgasm”. The whole experience was “both wonderful and scary and kind of intimidating, and delightful,” but with “an element of scariness,” and “delicious”.

Here’s the audio of the disgusting interview, with Stern and co-host Robin Quivers cheering and prodding Takei’s salacious reminiscing.

Folks, that’s the Left.

Forget about their supposed ideology and beliefs, which are inconsistent and contradictory any way.

Montvale, New Jersey will not be a sanctuary city, mayor vows

michael-ghassali

Mayor Michael Ghassali

Laws and legal immigration still mean something to some politicians.

From NorthJersey.com: As a Syrian immigrant whose family fled Aleppo in 1980, weeks before hundreds of civilians were killed in a brutal siege, Michael Ghassali knows well the horrors facing today’s refugees.

But as the mayor of Montvale, Ghassali said, his allegiance is to the laws of his adopted country – even those he may personally disagree with. That is why Ghassali has vowed that under his administration, Montvale will not be a sanctuary city.

“I will not be signing any executive orders that will ask our employees to defy federal laws. A mayor should not be advocating the defiance of federal laws,” Ghassali announced in a Facebook post last week that has elicited both praise and condemnation.

The statement was in response to pressure from various advocacy groups that Ghassali said have approached him to declare the borough a safe haven for undocumented immigrants illegal aliens.

President Donald Trump issued an executive order last month suspending travel to the United States from seven Muslim-majority countries and indefinitely barring Syrian refugees from coming into the country. The order has been blocked by an appeals court, and Trump has said he will issue a revised order. But it sparked protests across the country, and local politicians have taken a public position either supporting it or opposing it.

Trump also has called for a crackdown on illegal immigration. On Tuesday, the Department of Homeland Security issued a sweeping set of orders that authorize all agents to enforce the nation’s immigration laws more forcefully, instructing them to identify, apprehend and quickly deport every undocumented immigrant they encounter.

Several North Jersey towns have either approved or are considering resolutions to become sanctuary cities, a term that generally means local police would limit their cooperation with federal immigration enforcement officers.

Prospect Park Mayor Mohamed Khairullah, who is also a Syrian-born immigrant, issued an executive order in January declaring the borough a sanctuary city. “As an immigrant from a country ruled by a dictator, it is important to me that our commander in chief upholds the U.S. Constitution as the law of the land,” Khairullah said last month.

Ghassali recalled in an interview this week his experience entering the country at 15 years old and the hurdles his family faced.

In Syria, his father was a tailor, working hard for a middle-class life for his family of four children. Ghassali remembers always feeling safe in Aleppo, even at night. Nevertheless, the Islamist uprising, revolts against the secular government led mostly by the Muslim Brotherhood, had been brewing in the country since 1976.

“My father was wise enough to know what was going on. He told us, ‘At some point, this will not be a safe place to live.’ And he decided that we should leave,” Ghassali said.

In 1980, members of Ghassali’s family boarded a flight with green cards in hand and headed to New York City, where they had family from his father’s side waiting for their arrival. They settled in Dumont. Ghassali said he became a citizen in 1987.

“I know firsthand the vetting system is intense – it’s always been that way. I don’t know how much more intense it could get,” said Ghassali, a Republican who ran for mayor as an independent.

“I wish the administration spent more time analyzing the current process before issuing such an executive order,” said Ghassali. “They should spend the time to look at the current process before causing havoc among the refugees.”

Ghassali said he has family members who are refugees or have been killed in the war in Syria. “My whole network is either a refugee or has a family or friend who is a refugee. I feel it. It is very personal,” Ghassali said. But, he said, “I have to remove emotions out of this if I want to do my job.”

A close friend of Ghassali’s who attends the same Syriac Orthodox church in Teaneck has been in the country illegally for 15 years, he said. Ghassali said that declaring Montvale a sanctuary city would not change the reality of his friend’s situation. “He’s been scared for 15 years,” Ghassali said. “That doesn’t change when a mayor signs an executive order.”

Ghassali said he hoped his stance was not misconstrued as being against diversity. About one-fifth of Montvale’s approximately 8,000 residents are foreign-born, according to 2015 census. Twenty-two languages are spoken at home, Ghassali said.

Ghassali is married to an Iraqi immigrant. On his block alone, he said, his neighbors hail from India, Pakistan and parts of South America. “Montvale is not against refugees, against immigrants, against diversity,” he said. “We are as diverse as they come.”

WikiLeaks: John McCain in 2008 illegally solicited campaign contribution from Russia

john-mccain-lord-of-the-tarp1

RINO senator John McCain (R-Arizona) is a diehard anti-Trumper in the 2016 campaig. McCain also went fully on board with the Obama administration and the MSM’s fake story that the Russian government had intervened in the election to favor Trump by hacking into and transmitting to WikiLeaks damaging Democrat emails — an assertion that remains unverified and unsubstantiated to this day. See:

Along with fellow Republican senator Lindsey Graham (SC), McCain is one of a bipartisan group of senators calling for an investigation into Russian hacking of the 2016 election to help Trump defeat Hillary Clinton. McCain is also a co-sponsor of the Russian Review Act that would impose strict new congressional oversight and veto power over the Trump administration if it decided to lift sanctions on Russia.

The irony is that according to documents obtained by WikiLeaks, it is John McCain who in 2008 had solicited a campaign contribution from Russia’s ambassador to the United Nations Vitaly Churkin. U.S. law forbids presidential candidates from seeking foreign donations.

The documents are two:

(1) A 4-page letter, dated September 29, 2008, from John McCain to Vitaly Churkin, who was Russia’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations at the time, asking for a campaign contribution “of $35, $50, $100, $500, $1,000, $2,500 or even $5,000 to the McCain-Palin Victory 2008”. To download the letter in Word format, click here.

Below are screenshots of pages 1 and 4 of McCain’s letter:

mccain-letter-to-vitaly-churkin-1mccain-letter-to-vitaly-churkin-2

(2) A Statement by the Permanent Mission of the Russian Federation to the United Nations, dated October 20, 2008:

“We have received a letter from Senator John McCain requesting financial contribution to his Presidential campaign.

In this connection we would like to reiterate that Russian officials, the Permanent Mission of the Russian Federation to the United Nations or the Russian Government do not finance political activity in foreign countries.”

Here’s a screenshot of the Statement:

WikiLeaks released the Statement on October 20, 2008, stating that “Wikileaks staff have verified the authenticity of the document.”

vitaly-churkin

Vitaly Churkin was Russia’s Permanent Representative to the UN from 2006 until his sudden death in New York City three days ago on February 20, 2017, the eve of his 65th birthday. From Wikipedia:

The immediate cause was heart failure, according to Russian diplomat Sergei Ordzhonikidze.[16] The Russian Foreign Ministry noted that Churkin died while at work and expressed condolences to Churkin’s family.[17]

[…] On 21 February 2017 the New York City Medical Examiner’s Office released the preliminary results of an autopsy performed on Churkin, which states that the cause of death needed further study, which often indicates the need for toxicology tests.[19] The same day Churkin was posthumously awarded the Russian Order of Courage[20] and the Order of the Serbian Flag 1st class.

Sacramento lawsuit charges that lack of court hearings for undocumented immigrants violates Constitution

I might be illegal

From Sacramento Bee: For a year and a half, Jose Garcia-Alcazar has been sitting in jails in Richmond and Elk Grove while his lawyers fight the government’s efforts to deport him to his native Mexico. For more than six months now, Garcia-Alcazar, who has three children who are U.S. citizens, has not had a hearing to determine whether he is eligible for bail while the immigration courts figure out what to do with him.

Lawyers for the former car-wash employee in Rohnert Park call his extended stay in jail a case of indefinite detention. They also call it unconstitutional, and they say it stands in direct defiance of a 2011 appellate court ruling that guarantees incarcerated aliens a bail hearing – even if they have criminal records and made their way back to the United States after having already been deported. Garcia-Alcazar, 30, has drug convictions and once associated in Mexico with “coyotes” who smuggled people into the United States, one of his lawyers said.

Earlier this month, Garcia-Alcazar’s attorneys filed a lawsuit in federal court in Sacramento seeking class-action status to try to reinstate bail hearings for him and an untold number of other undocumented immigrants illegal aliens. In the lawsuit, the lawyers are challenging a memorandum issued by an immigration judge in San Francisco that says people like Garcia-Alcazar who return to the U.S. after being deported are not entitled to “redetermination” hearings that would give them a chance to make their case for bail.

While an immigration judge’s decisions are usually confined to his or her own courtroom, lawyers for Garcia-Alcazar say the one made by Anthony S. Murry on Dec. 12 has been reduced to an eight-page memo that is now being widely distributed. The plaintiff’s attorneys noted that the memo came out and that bail hearings began to be curtailed just a month after President Donald Trump was elected on a campaign that promised to build a wall across the southern border of the United States and cut off illegal immigration from Mexico.

“It is kind of weird that it started happening toward the end of the year,” said Joseph LaCome, the attorney who wrote the briefs in the case filed in Sacramento and who has filed similar lawsuits in Phoenix and San Francisco.

According to LaCome, it had been common practice in immigration courts before the election for judges to hold the bail hearings. He said such proceedings have since tailed off to “nothing.”

On Tuesday, the Trump administration released two memos outlining its enforcement strategy on illegal immigration. Along with the construction of the border wall, the plan called for hiring 10,000 new immigration control officers and 5,000 additional border security officers as well as for having local police departments use their personnel as immigration officers.

The administration’s memos also proposed a surge in “the deployment of immigration judges and asylum officers to interview and adjudicate claims asserted by recent border entrants.” They call for “establishment of appropriate processing and detention facilities,” within a hundred miles of the Mexican border. And they aim to achieve a sharp reduction in what the administration calls the parole of aliens while their immigration cases are pending, which has enabled thousands of them, the administration contends, to abscond from the law.

In response to Trump’s action plan, the director of the American Civil Liberties Union’s immigrants rights project, Omar Jadwat, said, “Trump does not have the last word here.” Jadwat promised legal action “if they go back to discredited detainer policies that we’ve already beat in court numerous times,” an outcome that the Garcia-Alcazar lawsuit suggests is already taking place.

Kathryn Mattingly, the spokeswoman for the U.S. Department of Justice’s Executive Office of Immigration Review, which oversees the nation’s immigration courts, said in an email Wednesday that Murry’s memo “was an independent decision by an immigration judge for one particular respondent.” She said such memorandums “are not distributed to EOIR staff as they apply only to the individual case for which they were written.”

Plaintiff’s attorney LaCome, however, said he has been told by an attorney for the Office of the Chief Counsel – the arm of the Department of Homeland Security that prosecutes cases in immigration court – that Murry’s memorandum is now being distributed around the country, making the case to deny bail hearings to immigrants from coast to coast.

“The OCC attorney told me they took it and ran with it all over the 9th Circuit,” LaCome said. “The attorney told me it also was going all over the country.”

A spokesman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, which oversees the government’s lawyers in immigration courts, declined to comment on any pending case.

LaCome maintains in the suit, filed Feb. 9, that the Murry memorandum violates the 2011 Diouf decision by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that entitles aliens to bail hearings every six months, even if they have been rearrested after deportation.

The Garcia-Alcazar petition seeks “an immediate custody hearing before a federal district judge or magistrate, or an IJ (immigration judge) other than IJ Murry,” to determine whether the memorandum is lawful. It also wants to stop the U.S. Department of Justice, the Department of Homeland Security, the Executive Office of Immigration Review and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement “from continuing their policy of influencing Immigration judges within this Circuit to deny Diouf bond hearings.”

US appeals court upholds Maryland assault weapons ban

debbie ar15

Me shooting a “weapon of war.” Molṑn Labé.

Next stop: SCOTUS.

From Fox News: Maryland’s ban on 45 kinds of assault weapons and its 10-round limit on gun magazines were upheld Tuesday by a federal appeals court in a decision that met with a strongly worded dissent.

In a 10-4 ruling, the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Va., said the guns banned under Maryland’s law aren’t protected by the Second Amendment.

“Put simply, we have no power to extend Second Amendment protections to weapons of war,” Judge Robert King wrote for the court, adding that the Supreme Court’s decision in District of Columbia v. Heller explicitly excluded such coverage.

Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh, who led the push for the law in 2013 as a state senator, said it’s “unthinkable that these weapons of war, weapons that caused the carnage in Newtown and in other communities across the country, would be protected by the Second Amendment.”

“It’s a very strong opinion, and it has national significance, both because it’s en-banc and for the strength of its decision,” Frosh said, noting that all of the court’s judges participated.

Judge William Traxler issued a dissent. By concluding the Second Amendment doesn’t even apply, Traxler wrote, the majority “has gone to greater lengths than any other court to eviscerate the constitutionally guaranteed right to keep and bear arms.” He also wrote that the court did not apply a strict enough review on the constitutionality of the law.

“For a law-abiding citizen who, for whatever reason, chooses to protect his home with a semi-automatic rifle instead of a semi-automatic handgun, Maryland’s law clearly imposes a significant burden on the exercise of the right to arm oneself at home, and it should at least be subject to strict scrutiny review before it is allowed to stand,” Traxler wrote.

National Rifle Association spokeswoman Jennifer Baker said, “It is absurd to hold that the most popular rifle in America is not a protected arm' under the Second Amendment."</strong> She added that the majority opinion "clearly ignores the Supreme Court's guidance from District of Columbia v. Heller that the Second Amendment protects arms that arein common use at the time for lawful purposes like self-defense.”‘

The NRA estimates there are 5 million to 10 million AR-15s — one of the weapons banned under Maryland’s law — in circulation in the United States for lawful purposes. Asked about an appeal, Baker said the NRA is exploring all options.

But Elizabeth Banach, executive director of Marylanders to Prevent Gun Violence, said the decision is “overwhelming proof that reasonable measures to prevent gun violence are constitutional.”

“Maryland’s law needs to become a national model of evidence-based policies that will reduce gun violence,” Banach wrote in a statement.

U.S. District Judge Catherine Blake upheld the ban in 2015, but a divided three-judge panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled last year that she didn’t apply the proper legal standard. The panel sent the case back to Blake and ordered her to apply “strict scrutiny,” a more rigorous test of a law’s constitutionality. The state appealed to the full appeals court.

Maryland passed the sweeping gun-control measure after the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre that killed 20 children and six educators in Connecticut. King mentioned the massacre at the start of the ruling.

“Both before and after Newtown, similar military-style rifles and detachable magazines have been used to perpetrate mass shootings in places whose names have become synonymous with the slaughters that occurred there,” King wrote. He listed the 2012 shootings at a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado; the December 2015 shootings in San Bernardino, California; and the shootings last year at an Orlando, Florida, nightclub, where 49 people were killed and 53 injured.

King also noted that enacting the law is “precisely the type of judgment that legislatures are allowed to make without second-guessing by a court.”

“Simply put, the State has shown all that is required: a reasonable, if not perfect, fit between the (Firearms Safety Act) and Maryland’s interest in protecting public safety,” King wrote.

Chilling video of a political assassination in 2.33 seconds

Kim Jong-nam was the eldest son of the late North Korean dictator Kim Jong-il, who died in 2011 and who himself had succeeded his father Kim Il-sung in the bizarre hereditary dynasty of communist North Korea.

Jong-nam had been the heir apparent to his father until he fell out of favor in 2001 after a failed attempt to visit Tokyo Disneyland by entering Japan with a false passport. Jong-nam was exiled from North Korea in 2003, becoming an occasional critic of his family’s regime and an advocate for reform, while he lived a life of comfort and gambling on the island of Macao as his countrymen died from starvation. Jong-nam’s younger paternal half-brother, the ruthless Kim Jong-un, was named heir apparent and became leader after Jong-il’s death in 2011.

On February 13, 2017, Kim Jong-nam was assassinated via poison by two women at Kuala Lumpur International Airport, Malaysia.

Japan’s Fuji TV obtained and aired the chilling closed-circuit security footage of the assassination.

The footage begins with Kim — carrying a black backpack over his right shoulder and dressed in light-blue jeans, a sport coat and a cap — arriving alone at the airport’s crowded departures hall shortly before 9 a.m. on Feb. 13. Police said he had been in Malaysia for about a week, and had intended to take a 10:50 a.m. AirAsia flight back to his home in Macau.

He stops to look up at the flight schedules, then walks to a nearby self-check-in kiosk.

The next scene is blurry, showing two women approaching Kim. One woman, identified by police to be Siti Aisyah, 25, an Indonesian masseuse at a spa in Kuala Lumpur, approaches Kim on the left and catches his attention. The second woman, in white top, identified by police to be a Vietnamese named Doan Thi Huong, 28, attacks Kim from behind, wrapping both arms around his head and holding a cloth over his face.

Huong’s contact with Kim lasted 2.33 seconds, according a timer added to the video compilation. The two women quickly walk away in opposite directions. Kim’s backpack slips off from his shoulder and he stumbles backward. He stands motionless for several seconds.

Kuala Lumpur police told The Wall Street Journal that the video of the assault is blurry because a camera closer to the scene wasn’t working. How convenient. /sarc

A subsequent clip, of better quality from a different camera, shows Kim walking quickly to the nearby customer-service desk. There he tells an airport employee that two women had just wiped a wet cloth on his face, and that he feels dizzy. The airport worker escorts him out to the hallway where Kim speaks animatedly with the police and repeatedly motions toward his face. A police officer and an airport employee escort Kim, now moving less steadily, to a small, glass-fronted airport medical clinic.

An unspecified amount of time passes. The next clip shows Kim on a stretcher at the clinic, being moved. Police said he had a seizure. Kim died en route to Putrajaya Hospital.

Here’s a video with a CGI reenactment of the assassination:

According to Zerohedge, Malaysia’s police said they believe Kim was poisoned during the assault, but are awaiting confirmation from autopsy results. Police arrested the two assailants, Aisyah and Huong, and detained them for a week. Neither however has been charged. Police also arrested a North Korean man and a Malaysian man suspected of being involved in the assault, and say they are searching for others, including several North Korean men.

Mexico fumes over Trump immigration rules as U.S. talks loom

i-dont-care

Cállate.

From Yahoo: Senior envoys of President Donald Trump are likely to receive a chilly reception in Mexico on Wednesday, after the United States issued new immigration guidelines that deeply angered the southern neighbor the day before bilateral talks.

Trump’s administration on Tuesday unveiled plans to consider almost all illegal immigrants subject to deportation, and will seek to send many of them to Mexico if they entered the United States from there, regardless of their nationality.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly are due to arrive in Mexico on Wednesday afternoon for talks on security and immigration.

Mexico’s lead negotiator with the Trump administration, Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray, said there was no way Mexico would accept the new “unilateral” rules, which among other things seek to deport non-Mexicans to Mexico.

He said the issue would dominate the talks, taking place on Wednesday and Thursday. “I want to say clearly and emphatically that the government of Mexico and the Mexican people do not have to accept provisions that one government unilaterally wants to impose on the other,” he told reporters at the foreign ministry.

“We will not accept it, because there’s no reason why we should, and because it is not in the interests of Mexico.” Another senior Mexican official, Roberto Campa, who heads the human rights department of the interior ministry, said Videgaray was referring to the plan to deport non-Mexicans to Mexico, calling it “hostile” and “unacceptable.”

The Department of Homeland Security guidance to immigration agents is part of a broader border security and immigration enforcement plan in executive orders that Republican Trump signed on Jan. 25.
