No, 30,000 migrants haven’t disappeared in Germany ‘without a trace’

When Bild reported on Thursday that 30,000 rejected asylum seekers had gone missing without a trace in Germany it was soon picked up in the international media. The only problem? It isn’t true.

This is not the first time Bild has produced bogus reporting on refugees this year. In February the tabloid was forced to admit that a report on mass sexual assaults by migrants in Frankfurt over New Year had been completely made up.

Chris Uhlmann Australia’s Political Editor: Trump ‘has no desire and no capacity to lead the world’ | 3CHICSPOLITICO

Speaking on Sunday from the G20 conference in Hamburg, Uhlmann said Trump had shown “no desire and no capacity to lead the world” and was himself “the biggest threat to the values of the west”.“He was an uneasy, lonely, awkward figure at this gathering and you got the strong sense that some of the leaders are trying to find the best way to work around him,” Uhlmann said.“Where was the G20 statement condemning North Korea which would have put pressure on China and Russia? Other leaders expected it, they were prepared to back it, but it never came.”

Sorry Veep, America already leads the world in space by a large margin | Ars Technica

no other nation can come close to the United States in space. Moreover, because of the long lead times baked into aerospace development, almost every “accomplishment” that demonstrates American leadership in space during the next 3.5 years will have started long before President Trump took office. That said, here’s a rundown of how America already leads in space.

Video: Police Break Up Rock Concert On Orchard Street, Arresting Two: Gothamist – act like thugs because they can get away with it!

“As soon as the cops pulled up the leaders of the event grabbed the permits,” he said. “They [the police] forced us to stop playing and grabbed our drummer by the shirt and dragged him through the crowd.”“We had the proper permits,” The Cast Owner Chuck Gaurino told Bowerie Boogie. “Taped to all the amps like we always do. In the years past, the cops would roll up to check to see if we have our permits, we show them, they say ok keep it cool, and they go on their way. It was an insane act of excessive force to say the least.”

Evolution theory to be scrapped from Turkish schoolbooks | News | DW | 23.06.2017 – dumber youth to assure idiots rule the country!

A chapter entitled “Beginning of Life and Evolution” will be deleted from the standard biology textbooks used in high schools in Turkey, with the explanation that the “controversial” material was difficult to understand for average students, education authorities have said.”We are aware that if our students don’t have the background to comprehend the premises and hypotheses, or if they don’t have the knowledge and scientific framework, they will not be able to understand some controversial issues, so we have left out some of them,” Alparslan Durmus, head of the national education board, said.The material will remain available only to students who are on the path to go on to university, aged 18 or 19, he added. The changes are part of a new curriculum that will go into effect at the start of the 2017-2018 academic year, which was formulated in accordance with “Turkish values,” Durmus said.From embracing religious headscarves at some schools to shifting curricula, school education in Turkey has grown increasingly religious under the leadership of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s Islamist Justice and Development Party (AKP). The issue of teaching evolution has been fought over for years.

Trump says he didn’t tape his conversations with Comey – Chicago Tribune The ugly “Art of the Lie” next fake authored book by #TraitorTrump

“With all of the recently reported electronic surveillance, intercepts, unmasking and illegal leaking of information,” Trump said he has “no idea” whether there are “tapes” or recordings of the two men’s conversations. But he declares he “did not make, and do not have, any such recordings.”

Oldest Fossils of Homo Sapiens Found in Morocco, Altering History of Our Species – The New York Times – “Racism reigns in science and non-reporting! Desire to whiten or de-Ethiopianize single source of modern humans is huge! Last week, reports supposedly pointed to Eastern Europe as being a source of early humans, now Morocco… All the research really means is that researchers are finding more specimens that date back further than before. Findings do not say Ethiopia not source of modern humans or that there are multiple sources. DNA research point to single source not multiple sources – duh? Racism and desire to be top dog researcher are too strong for reporting facts.”

“We did not evolve from a single cradle of mankind somewhere in East Africa,” said Phillipp Gunz, a paleoanthropologist at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Liepzig, Germany, and a co-author of two new studies on the fossils, published in the journal Nature.

The $110 billion arms deal to Saudi Arabia is fake news | Brookings Institution

An example is a proposal for sale of four frigates (called multi-mission surface combatant vessels) to the Royal Saudi navy. This proposal was first reported by the State Department in 2015. No contract has followed. The type of frigate is a derivative of a vessel that the U.S. Navy uses but the derivative doesn’t actually exist yet. Another piece is the Terminal High Altitude Air Defense system (THAAD) which was recently deployed in South Korea. The Saudis have expressed interest in the system for several years but no contracts have been finalized. Obama approved the sale in principle at a summit at Camp David in 2015. Also on the wish list are 150 Black Hawk helicopters. Again, this is old news repackaged. What the Saudis and the administration did is put together a notional package of the Saudi wish list of possible deals and portray that as a deal. Even then the numbers don’t add up. It’s fake news.

In Computer Attacks, Clues Point to Frequent Culprit: North Korea – The New York Times New Slant to get news off #TraitorTrump?

The indicators are far from conclusive, the researchers warned, and it could be weeks, if not months, before investigators are confident enough in their findings to officially point the finger at Pyongyang’s increasingly bold corps of digital hackers. The attackers based their weapon on vulnerabilities that were stolen from the National Security Agency and published last month.Security experts at Symantec, which in the past has accurately identified attacks mounted by the United States, Israel and North Korea, found early versions of the ransomware, called WannaCry, that used tools that were also deployed against Sony Pictures Entertainment, a Bangladesh Central Bank last year and Polish banks in February. American officials said Monday that they had seen the same similarities.All of those attacks were ultimately linked to North Korea; President Barack Obama formally charged the North in late 2014 with destroying computers at Sony in retaliation for a comedy, “The Interview,” that envisioned a C.I.A. plot to kill Kim Jong-un, the country’s president.
