Meet the democratic socialist (and poet!) running against Nancy Pelosi

Meet the quality of candidates that California has to offer their constituents:

Nancy Pelosi has been in office since 1987. Her current term expires January 3, 2021. And their ain’t NO WAY she’s giving up her power.

Given the background and qualifications of this democratic socialist running against Nancy, Shahid Buttar, she’s more than likely to win another re-election (unless by some miracle a republican gets elected).

Let’s learn a bit more about Shahid, shall we? From his web site:

“Since graduating from Stanford Law School in 2003, Shahid has worked in both San Francisco and Washington as a legal advocate, a non-profit leader, a grassroots organizer, and a poet & musician. His wide-ranging work reflects a commitment to intersectional feminism, democratic socialism, and international human rights. His passions have long aligned around a common purpose: building the movement to place human rights and human needs like peace and climate justice before corporate profits.

In addition to LGBTQ rights, privacy, and the right to encryption, Shahid’s work has also advanced immigrant rights, campaign finance reform, government transparency, international human rights, and police accountability. His writing has explored issues from the right-wing attack on reproductive freedom to the erosion of voting rights, and from effective counter-terrorism strategies to examples of counter-cultural activism promoting progressive politics at the intersection of art and organizing.

An immigrant of Pakistani descent from the United Kingdom and the youngest of four children, Shahid grew up in the midwest and first came to the Bay Area in 2000 to study law at Stanford.

While a student at Stanford Law School, he served as Executive Editor of the Stanford Environmental Law Journal and professor Lawrence Lessig’s teaching assistant for Constitutional Law. He also spear-headed a campaign to promote sustainable building practices by the university, a day of action to shut down a Lockheed Martin facility, and a student strike against the war in Iraq.

After growing immersed in the movement to end the war, Shahid moved to Washington to work for Heller Ehrman LLP, a San Francisco-based law firm that later collapsed during the 2008 financial crisis. His work there included litigation championing the right to marry the partner of one’s choice—nearly 10 years before the Democratic establishment finally embraced marriage equality—and an appeal defending bipartisan campaign finance reform from being undermined by the Federal Election Commission.”

Outside of his work as an advocate and organizer, Shahid performs as a DJ, MC, and poet. He also organizes artists, and has co-founded several collectives of politicized performance artists on both coasts.”

Some of his endorsements include left-wing actress Susan Sarandon, the anti-Semite Linda Sarsour, race-baiter Dr. Cornel West and faux black man Shaun King.

Stellar list of endorsements ‘ya got there, Shahid.

Ain’t multiculturalism grand? Grooming ‘epidemic’ as almost 19,000 children identified as sexual exploitation victims in England

The faces of multiculturalism in England…

From The Independent: Almost 19,000 children have been sexually groomed in England in the past year, according to official figures that have prompted warnings of an “epidemic”.

Campaigners say the true figure is far higher and accused the government of failing to tackle child sexual exploitation, despite promises made after high-profile cases in Rotherham and Rochdale.

More than 18,700 suspected victims of child sexual exploitation were identified by local authorities in 2018-19, up from 3,300 five years before.

Sarah Champion, the Labour MP for Rotherham, said the figures show that grooming “remains one of the largest forms of child abuse in the country”.

“Too many times, government has said it will ‘learn lessons’, yet 19,000 children are still at risk of sexual exploitation,” she told The Independent.

The government has singularly failed to tackle this issue head on. Its approach has been piecemeal and underfunded.”

Sajid Javid promised a review into the characteristics of grooming gangs in 2018, saying high-profile cases included a “high proportion of men of Pakistani heritage” and that “cultural reasons” could be at play.

The Independent understands that the Home Office started internal analysis of data from police and other agencies, and will use it to inform policy development and prevention strategies.But the findings may not be published and the Queen’s Speech, which set out Boris Johnson’s legislative agenda, did not include any mention of a public review.

Several grooming gang investigations and prosecutions are ongoing across the country, including in Huddersfield where several abusers have already been jailed in a series of linked trials.

In Rotherham, where revelations over the abuse of an estimated 1,500 victims sparked a national scandal in 2012, the National Crime Agency has identified more than 190 suspects.

Sammy Woodhouse, a Rotherham victim who helped expose the scandal, said she is still receiving reports of current abuse in parts of the country. “You hear this bulls*** line, ‘lessons have been learned’, but they haven’t learned anything,” she told The Independent.

I still hear a lot about the authorities aren’t doing things as they should. It’s not very often I hear something good and for all different reasons – if the police won’t act on reports, people feel they’re not being listened to or supported properly, or information not being shared.”

Alleged ISIS supporter commits murder with stolen gun; victims sue S&W for their “ultra-hazardous” product

Faisal Hussain: Not responsible because of a hazardous product.

In 2018, a “psychotic, depressed ” and “very disturbed” Faisal Hussain shot 16 people in Greektown (Toronto). Two people died. Hussain cowardly committed suicide.

Hussain used a .40-calibre Smith & Wesson that HE STOLE in Saskatchewan in 2016 during a break-and-enter at a gun store.

According to Heavy, the Pakistani Hussain may have expressed support for ISIS. Wikipedia says that to this day there is no evidence that there was any connection between the shooter and his support for ISIS.

In a class action lawsuit filed by the victims of this shooting, they claim that the gun manufacturer failed to implement “key safety features” that could have prevented the attack.

Those features would be smart-gun technologies to prevent “unauthorized” users from firing the gun.

Without the technology in place, the lawsuit claims it was “reasonably foreseeable” people such as Hussain could inflict widespread damage with a stolen weapon. Read the details about the class action lawsuit here.

Setting aside the unreliability of smart gun technology, wasn’t it “reasonably foreseeable” that people such as Hussain would not inflict such widespread damage due to Canadian laws?

I mean, I’m no lawyer and I do not have a thorough knowledge of Canada’s criminal laws yet have a few questions:

Isn’t stealing ILLEGAL?
Isn’t breaking and entering ILLEGAL?
Isn’t assault ILLEGAL?
Isn’t assault with a deadly weapon ILLEGAL?
Isn’t first-degree murder ILLEGAL?
Isn’t felony murder ILLEGAL?

I’d argue that the “ultra-hazardous” actions of this shooting originated with the CRIMINAL shooter.

Where do you draw the line with product manufacturers and CRIMINALS who are WILLING and INTENT on committing ILLEGAL behaviors?

Guess the Canadian courts will decide.

“Pacific Islander” doctor arrested for performing unnecessary surgeries on women, including hysterectomies

Dr. Javaid Perwaiz

The good doctor that was arrested is Javaid Perwaiz, 69, of Chesapeake, Virginia. The USMS Norfolk arrested him on Friday and he was booked into the Western Tidewater Regional Jail.

The arresting record describes him as “Asian/Pacific Islander.”

The good doctor is neither of those descriptors – he’s originally from Pakistan.

According to WJLA, the doctor was charged with one count each of health care fraud and making false statements relating to health care matters.

This arrest all began because of a tip from an employee last year to the FBI. WJLA states that the doctor subjected Medicaid patients (four in total) to unwanted procedures including hysterectomies and tubal ligation.

Apparently the affidavit completed by the FBI states that in 2014 a woman learned that Perwaiz had removed her Fallopian tubes without her consent or knowledge.

Scott Daughtery of The Virginian-Pilot has an extensive story about this case including more details about the unwanted/unauthorized procedures. This includes the fact that the arrested doctor was performing so many procedures that hospital staff had a difficult time “keeping up.”

Read the whole scary story here.

From the arrested doctor’s web page:

“Dr. Perwaiz has practiced in the Chesapeake region for over 30 years, providing expert and individualized care to his patients. Personally following each and every patient throughout their pregnancy, he is available 24/7 to meet all of your requests and expectations.

Educated abroad, Dr. Perwaiz has practiced in the Chesapeake Region for over 30 years. He is dedicated to the promotion of healthcare to women from adolescence to menopause and beyond. His training and experience truly qualifies him as an expert in the care of low and high risk pregnancies. He has delivered thousands of healthy babies. His surgical skills are unparalleled, from laparoscopic surgery, cesarean section, hysterectomy, to more complicated gynecologic repair.“

Guess the doctor should have added this caveat to his web page: “Whether you want it or not.”

Muslim woman who threw her newborn baby to its death from a window after hiding the pregnancy/birth from her parents escapes jail

mubashra uddin

Baby killer Mubashra Uddin walks free


INFURIATING.
From Daily Mail: A woman who dropped her newborn from a window in her high-rise apartment to hide her pregnancy from her parents has been sentenced to probation.
Mubashra Uddin, 20, was sentenced to four years’ probation after pleading guilty to involuntary manslaughter of a family member in Cook County Court in Chicago, Illinois, on Thursday. She was originally charged with first-degree murder in the 2015 death of her infant, named in official documents a Baby Jane Uddin.
Uddin dropped Baby Jane from a window in her eighth floor Chicago apartment after she had given birth on November 11, 2015, so that her parents would not find out about her pregnancy. The baby died about an hour later.
Though she was initially jailed without bond, Cook County Judge Carol Howard reduced Uddin’s bail last year to $275,000, according to the Chicago Tribune. Uddin eventually posted bond and was released. She lived with her parents and was on electronic monitoring.
She was given credit for serving 603 days in jail and was sentenced to at least 48 months’ probation at her sentencing Thursday.
She did not tell her parents, who are Pakistani Muslim, that she became pregnant by her boyfriend because she knew they would not approve, assistant state attorney Patrick Turnock said at the time.
Uddin gave birth around 11.20pm to a full-term seven pound 11 ounce girl in a bedroom she shared with her younger sister. When she heard her mother approach the room, Uddin dropped the girl out of the bedroom window.
The DeVry University student had only told her boyfriend and another friend that she was pregnant. She hid the pregnancy from her family by wearing clothing that concealed the bump, according to Turnrock.
Baby Jane was still alive when she was found by a man in the grass outside the high-rise in the Uptown neighborhood just before midnight. The man who found the newborn baby girl asked security at the building to call an ambulance and wrapped the bloody and naked child in shirts and two baby blankets he retrieved from his home nearby.
The baby girl suffered extensive injuries, including fractures to her skull, spine and ribs, a broken shoulder, and a lacerated liver and bowel. She was taken to Weiss Memorial Hospital, just a block from the apartment building. Baby Jane was pronounced dead at 12.25am Thursday.
Her death was ruled a homicide by blunt-force trauma, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.
When police went to Uddin’s apartment, officers found blood in the bedroom and bathroom as well as on sheets and a pair of scissors. Investigators said Uddin made ‘multiple admissions’ on video.
Judge Peggy Chiampas said the teenager’s family circumstances will be considered during the case. Uddin was arrested a day after her baby died.

Saudi Arabia ‘deports 40,000 Pakistani workers over terror fears’

deported
From the Independent: The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has expelled almost 40,000 Pakistani migrant workers in the last four months, local media has reported.
Over 39,000 people have been deported since October 2016 over visa violations and security concerns, the Saudi Gazette reported, citing unnamed interior ministry officials. As well as crimes including drug trafficking, forgery and theft, an unknown number of those removed from the country were suspected to have links to Isis and other extremist groups, the paper said.
The alleged mass deportations come after a year of strikes and other unrest in the kingdom due to unpaid wages following the oil market’s decline and subsequent blow to the Saudi economy.
Official Saudi statistics say that 243,000 Pakistanis were deported between 2012 – 2015. Mass deportations of migrant workers – which Human Rights Watch and other rights organisations say often involve illegal beatings and detainment in poor conditions – are fairly common.
2010 census figures show that 8.5 million of Saudi Arabia’s 27 million strong population, or around 30 per cent, are foreign nationals. According to a 2014 European University Institute report, there are approximately 900,000 people of Pakistani nationality currently employed in Saudi Arabia’s vast construction industry and other low-paid service jobs.
In Mecca in January, dozens of expatriate workers, mostly from poor Asian and Middle Eastern countries, were beaten and jailed over public protests against unpaid salaries that turned violent.
While the Philippines and India have also seen hundreds of thousands of citizens returned home after lay-offs in Saudi Arabia, the deportation of Pakistani workers has been mainly driven by security concerns, the New Arab reported.
Several prominent Saudi politicians, including Abdullah Al-Sadoun, chair of the security committee of the country’s Shura Council, have called for tougher screening processes for Pakistani nationals before they are allowed entry into the country. “Pakistan itself is plagued with terrorism due to its close proximity with Afghanistan. The Taliban extremist movement was itself born in Pakistan,” he said.
Approximately 80 Pakistani nationals are currently in prison in Saudi Arabia charged with terror or security related offences.

Germans rush to buy illegal firearms and grenades to 'protect themselves from migrants'

triple-dog-dare
I dare any of the proggies freaking out over Trump’s temporary immigration ban take a lovely vacation to Germany.
From Daily Mail: Germans have been arming themselves with illegal guns and grenades to protect themselves from migrants.
A website calling itself Migrant Fright was discreetly selling what it describes as first-class quality goods so that its customers can avoid ‘annoying bureaucratic hurdles or annoying paperwork’. The website has since been closed down, but Germans who have already received the weapons in the post, are practicing firing the guns in their back gardens in preparation for potentially aiming it at a prospective terrorist.
The now-defunct website, seen by MailOnline, carried a mission statement that read: ‘Protect yourself and your family. We offer first-class quality goods, discreetly sent, at a fair price. Without annoying bureaucratic hurdles or annoying paperwork. Simply order, pay conveniently and receive the delivery. Simple, fast and discreet – that is the motto of Migrantenschreck.’
Various packages were available to customers, ranging from €7.99 to €799, and includes guns, grenades and ammunition.
Professionals, including doctors, were getting the deadly weapons delivered to their workplaces, according to Sued Deutsche. Undercover reporters from the paper tracked the guns to a doctor’s address to quiz him over his purchase.
The now-armed physician claims not to have a problem with protecting his family, but has an interest in weapons. He has been practicing firing his gun in his garden, and said the noise was deafening. ‘I think the rate of crime increases with the influx of foreigners,’ he told Sued Deutsche.
‘People from other countries, of course, have different ideas about how to behave in society.  The uncontrolled immigration is a problem, we need a 180-degree rotation.’
It is understood the weapons were being bought legally in Hungary and shipped to Germany, which is illegal. Many of the customers are thought to be unaware they had broken any laws.
Germany was rocked by terror last year, heaping pressure on chancellor Angela Merkel’s open-door immigration policy. A bloody week of violence that rocked Germany began on July 18 when Pakistani teenager Riaz Khan Ahmadzai, 17, posing as an Afghan refugee, hacked at passengers on a train in Wurzburg with an axe, wounding five. He was shot dead by police.
Four days later mentally unstable German-Iranian teenager Ali Sonboly shot nine people dead during a rampage through a shopping centre in Munich before taking his own life. Sonboly claimed he was taking revenge for being bullied at school with no political motive to the murderous rampage.
Earlier that month, a suspected ISIS airport bomb plotter hanged himself in a German prison after being arrested following a manhunt. Syrian national Jaber al-Bakr, 22, was found dead in his cell in Leipzig, eastern Germany on Wednesday evening – having reportedly used his own t-shirt – and was taken away overnight. He was detained on Sunday after three days on the run following a tip-off that he may have been looking to team up with associates in Leipzig.
Al-Bakr had built ‘a virtual bomb-making lab’ in a flat in Chemnitz and was thought to have planned an attack against either one of Berlin’s two airports or a transport hub in his home state of Saxony, security sources said. Chemnitz was on lockdown for hours when police raided his flat but failed to seize him before he was captured by fellow Syrian nationals who tied him up and handed him over to the authorities.
And on Monday, December 19, Tunisian ISIS fanatic Anis Amri hijacked a 35-tonne truck and ploughed it into a Christmas market in Berlin, killing 12 people.

Ex-husband admits honour killing of British woman in Pakistan

Samia Shahid/Photo from Independent

Samia Shahid/Photo from Independent


From MSN.com: The ex-husband of a British woman who was the victim of an alleged honour killing in Pakistan has admitted strangling her to death, police have said.
Samia Shahid, a 28-year-old beautician from Bradford, died while visiting relatives in her ancestral village in the northern Punjab region of the country. Her family said she had a heart attack, but her husband Syed Mukhtar Kazam believes she was murdered in a so-called honour killing because the family did not approve of her marriage to him.
Ms. Shahid’s former husband Choudhry Shakeel was arrested along with her father on suspicion of murder – and Mr. Shakeel has since confessed he drugged and strangled his ex-wife, according to Pakistani newspaper Dawn.
Deputy Inspector General Abubakar Khuda Bakhsh, the investigating officer in the case, told Reuters Mr. Shakeel and Ms. Shahid’s father, Choudhry Shahid, had appeared in court in Pakistan. “The court has sent them to police custody for physical remand of four days,” Mr Bakhsh said. “Once facts are established, we would be in a better position to say if it is an honour killing (which are often ignored by police) or a murder as revenge.”
The case has attracted attention because it came days after the high-profile honour killing of outspoken social media star Qandeel Baloch, dubbed ‘the Kim Kardashian of Pakistan’. Ms. Baloch’s brother has been arrested in relation to her death.

Pakistani teen burnt alive by her mother for choosing own husband

The Religion of Pieces strikes again.
islam
From Yahoo: A Pakistani mother on Wednesday burnt her 16-year-old daughter alive for marrying a man of her own choice, before shouting on the street to neighbours that she had killed the teen for bringing shame on her family.
It was the third so-called “honour killing” in the South Asian country in as many months, and a rare example of the crime being carried out by a woman.
Zeenat Bibi, 16, was set on fire by her mother Perveen Bibi in the eastern city of Lahore a little more than a week after the couple had acquired their marriage licence, police said.
Perveen Bibi killed her daughter Zeenat Bibi by burning her alive around 9:00 am on Wednesday,” Haidar Ashraf, a senior police official told AFP, adding the teen had married a man named Hasan Khan on May 29.
Khan’s ethnicity — he is an ethnic Pashtun, while Zeenat was a Punjabi — was the main cause of the family’s disapproval, according to the woman’s family.
Zeenat’s husband Khan told local TV station Geo News that the pair had eloped, but he had reluctantly allowed her to return to her family home after they promised they would hold a celebration and not harm her.
He said: “After living with me for four days following our marriage, her family contacted us and promised they would throw us a proper wedding party after eight days. Then we would be able live together. Zeenat was unwilling to go back to her home and told me that she would be killed by her family, but later agreed when one of her uncles guaranteed her safety.”
“After two days, she called me and said that her family had gone back on their word and asked me to come to get her, but I told her to wait for the promised eight days. Then, she was killed.”
Ashraf, the police official, said Perveen and other family members had confessed to the crime and that police had seized kerosene oil from the scene.
– Family defiant –
At the victim’s two-bedroom family home in a low-income southern neighbourhood of the city, Perveen’s family remained defiant.
Naseem Bibi, Perveen’s younger sister, told AFP: “After killing her daughter, Perveen went out on the street, took off her shawl and started beating herself on her chest, shouting: ‘People! I have killed my daughter for misbehaving and giving our family a bad name.‘ My sister declared a long time ago she would not allow her daughter to marry a Pashtun,” she said.
The victim’s sister Shazia also blamed Zeenat for defying her mother, but said she had urged her mother to cut ties with her instead of killing her.
Perveen’s husband died several years ago and her relationship with her daughters had deteriorated, according to Shazia. “Our mother became distressed because of her daughter’s disobedience and because she felt there was no man in the house to rein her in.”
Hundreds of women are murdered by their relatives in Pakistan each year on the pretext of defending what is seen as family honour.
“A Girl in the River: The Price of Forgiveness” — a film telling the story of a rare survivor of an attempted honour killing — won an Oscar for best documentary short in February.
Amid publicity for the film, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif vowed to eradicate the “evil” of honour killings but no fresh legislation has been tabled since then.

Muslim Dairy Queen owner installs signs comparing Hindus to monkeys

monkey ism
Via Fox News: The Hindu community is calling on a Muslim Dairy Queen franchise owner to take down signs from his Houston-area business that compare Hindus to monkeys.
Mohammad Dar, a 65-year-old Muslim and U.S. citizen from Pakistan, claims he is not prejudiced for installing the signs — instead saying Hindus are the “racists,” mySA.com reported.
Dar told the website that he decided to post the displays at his business after “researching” Hinduism — the third-largest religion in the world — for 14 years. He said the signs at his Kemah, Texas, Dairy Queen seek to showcase the wrongs of certain religions, specifically Hinduism, acccording to the website.
One sign reportedly compared Hinduism to “monkeyism (sic).”
“Hindus don’t follow any limit or law, they follow desires like an animal – that is the foundation of Hinduism,” Dar told mySA.com. “Monkeys don’t plan anything, they just do what they desire, but humans follow the limit and law.”
muslim diary queen sign
“It’s nothing personal, it’s educational,” he reportedly added. “I’m really making people mad, but what I’m doing is communicating and inviting them to communicate […] they think I am attacking their religion, but I am not.”
In a statement to mySA.com, Dairy Queen’s corporate office called the installment of the signs an “unfortunate action” and said they are “not representative of our iconic family brand.” “We do not condone this behavior,” company officials told the website.”
Rajan Zed, president of the Universal Society of Hinduism, is calling for International Dairy Queen Inc. to issue an apology on the matter. “Posters reportedly displayed at its Kemah store in Texas were highly inappropriate and trivialized the oldest and third largest religion of the world with about one billion adherents and a highly philosophical thought,” Zed said in the release.
He said the company “should have shown some responsibility and already taken action regarding these signs posted at the Kemah location reportedly for many months.”
