In one exchange, Berth said that migrants who try to reach Europe by boat should be shot. “The only way you can do it effectively is simply to turn the boats away and say ‘You can’t sail into this territorial border, if you do you will either be shot or you will be turned around and sailed back’,” he said. The debate’s host, Ole Stephensen, gave Berth the opportunity to clarify himself by asking if he really believed boats of migrants should be fired upon. Berth said it was “an example” of what could be done to protect the EU’s borders. “We need to do what is necessary to ensure that the border is not violated,” he added. His debate opponent Bosse seemed to hardly be able to believe what she had just heard. “You cannot stand here and say that they be shot in the Mediterranean. I simply refuse to believe it,” she said. As the clip of his comments began to circulate, Berth took to Facebook in an attempt to “address a coming press storm”. “I of course don’t mean that a ship under the command of Nato or Frontex should shoot at migrants trying to cross the Mediterranean. What I mean is that warning shots should be fired at a vessel that is crossing into European territorial waters!” he said. A lawmaker for the ruling Venstre party, Jakob Ellemann-Jensen, said on Twitter that the remarks were “not okay” and that “warning shots are… a warning of what is to follow.”

A Florida woman has been charged with making death threats against the parent of a child who died in the Sandy Hook school shooting massacre because she thought the attack was a hoax, federal authorities announced on Wednesday. Lucy Richards, 57, of Tampa was arrested Monday after a grand jury indictment on four felony counts of transmitting threats, the US justice department said in a statement.
Amanda’s boyfriend, Arthur* did a stint in a foreign military, so he has gun training. He’s alarmed that neither Trump, nor the mainstream media, is doing due diligence in speaking out against this rise of white supremacy. “My grandparents’ family were all murdered by Nazis, and I won’t let anyone repeat that on me, or any other group in this country, not without a fight,” he explains. “I plan on protesting and supporting groups and politicians [that oppose Trump], but if [white nationalists] bring the violence, I want to be armed.” This stance has a spiritual kinship with the Jewish resistance fighters who took up arms against their Nazi oppressors—the goal wasn’t so much to wholesale dismantle the government killing apparatus (that would have been impossible), but to disrupt the murders however temporarily, defend Jewish honor, and avenge the victims.
People that do not comprehend the concept of a fact are people that will readily believe a lie to influence their nature.
I stand by my assertion that….a Fact Is A Fact!
There Are No Facts!…….
I have had this conversation a couple of times…usually when I quote facts and then someone disputes their validity….by asking how do you know what are facts? How do you know that these are truly facts?
It is easy….A Fact is just the a FACT!
For instance it is a FACT that the Golden Gate is a bridge…it is NOT a FACT that it is a taco…..see how that works? Think that is silly? NO more so than the slugs that argue against facts.
I revisit this issue because of something that I read…..a supporter of Donald Trump said in an interview….
“Well, I think it’s also an idea of an opinion. And that’s — on one hand I hear half the media saying that these are lies, but on the other half there are many people that go, no, it’s true,” Hughes said. “And so…

As I am watching the battle of Aleppo, I pray that Assad behaves as a real patriot to his people, and stop the bloodshed. it is time to value the life of human beings.
It is time to make important ot life through people.
After all this destruction, it will take years if not decades to rebuild … it will need people who can reconcile with all what took place.
It needs to unify Syrians, and all decent people in this world to stand against the power of evil that creates such criminal groups to promote killing. And leaders as Assad, need to learn the lesson that dictatorships are not the answer. Killing and violence is not how you build a nation.
It is time for us, all, Arabs, who know well that tribalism will only lead us to more fractions and wars. What has been happening in the Arab world in the last six to seven years made us look undeserving to even life. We proved that the conspiracies are mastered from inside. The enemies are us.
The whole creation of Daesh and such groups proved how hateful, resentful we are. How our notions of nationalism are nothing but false empty noisy words? Our tribalism destroyed us. Our ignorance in our lack of knowledge that is limited to fatwas and whoever dictates us in the media is a core to our deterioration as people.
I just pray, that Aleppo’s liberation will be a sign of victory to Syrians who believe in Syria not Assad. This liberation is the liberation of Aleppo from destructive unhuman power who just continue to seek bloodshed. Assad as a leader has to prove now that he is the leader for all Syrians. I truly pray he uses wisdom with all the outlawed and opposition who are there in Aleppo, giving them a chance to clean their heads that have been brainwashed, to rehabilitate instead of killing and sentencing brutally.
At the end, we cannot forget that the Assad regime has been \if not still a harsh dictatorship regime where many people suffered …. But yet, this regime insisted to keep the fight over Syria, a fight for all Syrians …and maybe all Arabs…. But we will need time to realize how deteriorated things are.
For the last 6 years, we have all been watching the bloodshed in Syria in what still seems to be unreal. But yet, it was and still is very real. Syria revealed the true faces of humanity, that is definitely lacking what makes us humane.
Whether in east or in west, we all aligned ourselves to one side over the other. we declared an enemy and we all bet on a winner that we believed will overthrow the tyrant or the opposition.
I remember when the Arab Spring started, and in the row of springs it became Syria’s turn. It was a time when I was believing as probably most of the Arabs who aspired a true sense of liberty that it was time for the new generations to protest and live well. Syria with Assad the son, definitely seemed better and less of a dictatorship, as the case of…
