The standoff between the police and Hezbollah Brigades may portend an upcoming power struggle between Iraq’s established security forces (the Army, National Police, and local police) and the Iranian-supported Shia militias that make up the Popular Mobilization Units (PMU). The PMU has risen in stature after leading the charge to defeat the Islamic State in many Iraqi cities, and its political party placed second in Iraq’s parliamentary elections. It will ally with anti-American cleric Muqtada al Sadr, whose party placed first in the elections, to form the next government.

Roseanne Barr literally had her career destroyed by the establishment media and Hollywood a few weeks ago over one racist Tweet. Peter Fonda, however, has been given a free pass by the establishment media and Hollywood’s #MeToo activists.

An Iraqi Sister who was forced to flee Islamic State in 2014 has been denied entry to Britain for a second time.
Sister Ban Madleen previously applied for a UK visa to visit her sick sister but was refused permission in March. A second application for a month-long trip to see her sister and sister’s family was denied earlier this month.
A letter from the UK Visas and Immigration division of the Home Office said she had not satisfied immigration rules – in essence, not proving she had sufficient funds and that she was genuinely seeking to visit her family rather than trying to make Britain her main home. (It cited immigration rules V4.2 and V4.3.)

Last year, the festival saw at least 11 sex attacks, three of which led to arrests; the year before, nearly 40 young girls complained of being sexually harassed or abused by men often described as “foreign”.
One victim, 17-year-old Alexandra Larsson, described her attackers saying: “They were probably immigrants. I hate to say it. But it is the truth.”

Sophia Lösche, a 28-year-old German “Refugee welcome” activist, was found dead yesterday around 3.20 pm at the Egino gas station in the community of Asparrena in Álava, Spain. For a week, nothing was known about her whereabouts since she boarded a truck with Moroccan truck license plates in Schkeuditz, East Germany. She hitchhiked to her hometown Bamberg, about 260 kilometers south. A Civil Guard traffic control stopped the truck on Tuesday on a road near the Spanish city of Bailén in Jaén. He wanted to go to the Strait of Gibraltar, take a ferry and get off in Morocco, where he wanted to protect himself from European justice.

In a speech for 600 business and political guests in May, Macron called on the local mayors themselves – together with the population – to find suitable solutions, for the problems in France’s 1,500 no-go areas or ‘sensitive areas’ as France calls them.
Many mayors were struck by Macron’s speech. They had expected concrete political guidelines. Macron’s proposals are a long way from the ambitious strategy for the sensitive zones that former minister Jean-Louis Borloo had previously developed and published on behalf of Macron.
Instead, Macron passed the buck: not he, but his predecessors have caused today’s problems. All solutions designed from above have failed, so they must come from below. He called for a “general mobilisation” of the population, organising itself to save the nation.
In terms of security, Macron called for a “society of vigilance”. If you look away, if there are problems in your environment, you become an accomplice. Although this happens sometimes out of fear (in the focal areas), but it is up to the people themselves to set boundaries.
He announced that by 2020, there will be 1,300 additional police officers in 60 sensitive neighbourhoods. Everyone can report problems on a central website. An estimated six million people – about one tenth of the French population live in the 1,500 neighbourhoods that the government classifies as sensitive areas.

Denis Javier Varela Hernandez, 32, said that he had not heard from his wife Sandra, 32, who was with his two-year-old daughter Yanela Denise, for nearly three weeks until he saw the image of them being apprehended in Texas.
In an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com, Hernandez, who lives in Puerto Cortes, Honduras, says that he was told yesterday that his wife and child are being detained at a family residential center in Texas but are together and are doing ‘fine.’
‘You can imagine how I felt when I saw that photo of my daughter. It broke my heart. It’s difficult as a father to see that, but I know now that they are not in danger. They are safer now than when they were making that journey to the border,’ he said.
Denis said his wife and daughter were never separated by border control agents and remain together.
