El Salvador has accumulated 365 murder-free days since President Nayib Bukele took office in 2019, the Salvadoran leader announced on Thursday, having enjoyed just a single day without a registered homicide in the 15 years prior.

The precipitous drop in the homicide rate in one of the world’s most crime-ridden countries has been impressive and has been particularly prominent in the first five months of this year.

There have been 97 murder-free days so far this year up until May 13, up significantly from the 27 days recorded for the same period in 2022, and the three days in 2021. It is important to note that the government is not claiming the days were consecutive, but it still represents an unprecedented feat for a country that many experts said had the highest murder rate in the world before Bukele took power.

While foreigners make up 14 percent of the population, they account for 50 percent of all gang rapes in Germany Gang rapes have hit another record high in Germany in 2022, reaching a pace of more than two a day in the country, according to data released by the government after a request for information from the Alternative for Germany (AfD) party. The data shows that the total number of gang rapes hit 789, higher than last year when the number hit 677 and the previous record high of 710 in 2019. In 2017, there were 380 gang rapes recorded, more than 50 percent fewer than recorded in 2022. The data shows that exactly 50 percent of all gang rapes are committed by foreigners. However, as Remix News previously reported, individuals with a migration background, or even those with dual citizenship, who number nearly 4 million, are simply listed as “German.” As a result, it is unclear what percentage of these rapes were committed by ethnic Germans.

Noa Kirel, who represented Israel at Eurovision Song Contest, sparked controversy by suggesting that Poles were responsible for the Holocaust during World War II. Upon learning that she received 12 points from the Polish jury, the singer stated, “To receive 12 points from Poland after almost the entire Kirel family was murdered in the Holocaust — that’s a true victory!”

Poland’s o2.pl news outlet details how terms such as “Polish death camps” are often widely used due to ignorance, lack of knowledge, or even deliberate malice. The publication now questions what reasons could be attributed to the Israeli singer’s statements.

The paper also discounts that the statements were a mistake stemming from heightened emotions, pointing out that in a subsequent interview, Noa added, “I feel like a winner. For me, receiving the highest points from Poland after what my family went through during the Holocaust was a true moment of triumph.”

Poles swiftly reacted to the remarks made by the Israeli singer. A popular Polish influencer Nadia Długosz responded to the singer on Instagram, leading to a heated discussion. Nadia argued that Poles were also victims of German aggression during World War II.

“Could you, please, stop spreading lies about ‘Polish death camps?’ Nadia asks. She then points out that camps were in Poland only because of the German occupation. She also suggests that Noa visit Yad Vashem to gain better knowledge and apologize to Polish grandparents who risked their lives to hide Jews.

On May 9, French Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin asked the prefects throughout France to ban all events and protests organized by “the far right or the ultra-right.” In Paris alone, the police prefecture banned six such events last weekend, including a symposium organized by the Iliade Institute

The symposium that was to take place on Sunday aimed to honor the memory of Dominique Venner, a historian who took his life exactly 10 years ago in the Cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris as a “sacrifice” to “break with the lethargy that is overwhelming us,” to “awaken slumbering consciences.”

“I rebel against fate. I protest against poisons of the soul and the desires of invasive individuals to destroy the anchors of our identity, including the family, the intimate basis of our multi-millennial civilization,” he said in a message read after his death.

In one of the six decisions taken by the police prefect in Paris last weekend to comply with the order of Prime Minister Élisabeth Borne’s government, an administrative court overturned the ban against a conference and a march organized by the royalist organization Action Française to commemorate Joan of Arc. It was thus allowed to proceed and did so without disrupting public order, just like in previous years.

The organizers of the Iliade Institute’s symposium, however, were informed so late – less than 24 hours before their planned event – that it was impossible to obtain an interim measure in their favor by a court. Hence, when the persons invited to the symposium turned out at the venue rented out by the Iliade Institute in Paris, a police cordon barred their entry.

Laurent Nuñez, the police prefect of Paris, motivated the ban by stating in his decision that: “There is a serious risk that, on the occasion of this tribute, statements inciting hatred and discrimination against a group of people because of their origin or their membership or non-membership of an ethnic group, nation or religion will be made (…) of such a nature as to call into question national cohesion and the principles enshrined in the Declaration of the Rights of Man and the Citizen.”

This is exactly what preventive censorship is about: Nothing has yet been done or said by the Iliade Institute or any participant to the banned symposium, but this might happen, so it should not take place at all.

Yeah, that is also my guess. Just a very wild story with inexplicable violence going way too far so it sounds like that.

Yes - I read something else about how this was a strange occurrence, a fluke even, and that they are struggling to explain it.

If I see a further update explaining exactly how this happened, I’ll share it.

Target has fallen under continued criticism over the past several weeks due to its overt promotion of woke gender ideology and the LGBT agenda, despite the fact those who identify as such make up a small percentage of the U.S. population. Regardless, Target has openly embraced what society has deemed “pride” month — taking place in June — with flashy pride-themed displays prominently displayed at the front of stores, some of which have since been moved to the back due to backlash.

The displays featured items not only for adults — from shirts reading “Live Laugh Lesbian” to transgender swimsuits, to items from a satanist designer which have since been removed — but items for children and babies as well. While Target has clarified that “tuck-friendly” swimsuits come in adult sizes only, a closer look at the children’s items shows some pride-themed swimsuits containing tags which read “Thoughtfully Fit on Multiple Body Types and Gender Expressions,” as Breitbart News extensively reported.

While Target has lightly backtracked by moving the pride section from its dominant position in the front in some stores and stopping its partnership with a satanist designer who identifies as a gay transgender man, it is still proudly supporting the LGBT agenda and its attempts to target children, specifically, by partnering with the activist organization GLSEN.

GLSEN describes itself as a group founded by teachers who “knew that educators play key roles in creating affirming learning environments for LGBTQ youth.” The organization overtly states its goal of injecting this ideology in schools under the guise of ensuring “safer, more inclusive schools for LGBTQ youth.”

Help hold the ruling class accountable We are a community of free people tired of propaganda fed to us government, media, big tech, crony capitalists, and self anointed elites.

Help us hold the best of the left and the best of the right accountable for their promises and claims, and also blow off some steam and enjoy a lively community that posts about anything & everything.

We also maintain the Tyranny Prevention Project wiki where we take ideas discussed on Exploding Heads and lay out a set of foundations we need to put in place to protect us from tyrannical rule.

Speak­ing out­side De­part­ment 28 to­day the vic­tim’s part­ner Brian Hig­gin­botham lamented the fail­ure of the jury to reach a ver­dict as to De­cuir and Mims.

“They are both guilty of first de­gree mur­der,” he said. “They killed Ed in cold blood and went on al­most to com­mit an­other mur­der less than two weeks later.” …

While they did not dis­pute that their client fired the shot that killed Mr French, de­fense at­tor­neys ar­gued that, at the time of the killing, Ms De­cuir was in a “sickle cell cri­sis” and suf­fer­ing from opi­ate painkiller with­drawal.

They added that Ms De­cuir had a low IQ, a “lack of adap­tive func­tion­ing” and suf­fers from stress and anx­i­ety. As a con­se­quence, they said, she did not act “con­sciously” when fir­ing the gun.

She was “un­aware of what is go­ing on,” at­tor­ney Mark Iver­son told the jury, “She is mov­ing, but with­out con­scious thought.”

Sum­ming-up, pros­e­cu­tor Heather Tre­visan dis­missed claims of lack of con­scious­ness: “mak­ing a plan with some­one else to go to a tar­get-rich en­vi­ron­ment [and] to leave [Mr French] alone to die on the street while you go to fence the cam­era” sug­gested to the con­trary, she said. …

One ju­ror spoke of “per­sonal ten­sion” among those de­lib­er­at­ing.

With re­spect to Mr French’s death, the only guilty ver­dicts aris­ing from the day’s events, that the jury could agree, re­lated to Mims: a sin­gle count of ‘sec­ond de­gree rob­bery’ and a count of ‘con­tempt of court’—be­cause, by be­ing on Twin Peaks, he vi­o­lated a stay-away or­der pre­vi­ously im­posed.

The pair were both found not guilty of ‘in­flict­ing in­jury on an el­der’ as re­gards Mr French. The read­ing of this ver­dict for Ms De­cuir caused a mem­ber of the French fam­ily to im­me­di­ately leave the court­room. …

Six days be­fore the killing, La­m­onte Mims, al­ready on felony pro­ba­tion, was re­leased on bail by Judge Sharon Rear­don af­ter be­ing ar­rested for gun pos­ses­sion and pa­role vi­o­la­tions.

Beaten to death by three youths and two adults. Oddly enough these morons appear to not have realized how they were killing the guy while it happened.

Just trolling the sheisse out of chat gpt.

It’s wild how that works - the vaccine just didn’t do what it said it would do, and it injured people.

The Seoul Metropolitan Government is at odds with the Ministry of Economy and Finance over sharing the burden of the snowballing deficit of Seoul Metro, the capital’s subway operator.

The city government is demanding that the ministry partially cover the financial deficit incurred due mainly to the free senior travel scheme ― a welfare policy adopted by the central government almost 40 years ago.

Under a senior welfare policy enacted in 1984, every person aged 65 or older is entitled to use the subway free of charge in any city, regardless of their income. As the share of the elderly population nationwide has been rising steeply ― from 5.9 percent in 1984 to 17.5 percent in 2022 ― Seoul Metro has been pointing at the welfare policy as a major reason for its years-long operating losses.

The finance ministry, however, has refused to recognize this, saying that issues surrounding the city’s public transportation system should be handled solely by the local authority.

Seoul city issued a statement, Sunday, refuting the ministry’s claims. It argued that the city government does not have the legal authority to make adjustments on the age eligibility of free traveling seniors nor discount rates, a key reason why the ministry should actively engage in the matter.

“The free travel scheme policy is a central government measure applied to all people regardless of their place of residency. As such, it can be interpreted as an illegal move if a local government makes revisions to the policy,” that statement read. Under administrative law, a local government is not allowed to to issue an ordinance conflicting with state law.

City authorities have been considering raising the eligible age for the free travel scheme to 70 from the current 65, following Seoul Metro’s estimate that raising the eligibility age to 70 could reduce losses by as much as 152.4 billion won.

It also argued that the central government should partially cover the losses as it does for the state-run railway operator Korail. In accordance with the Act on Railroad Industry Development, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport compensates up to 70 percent of the losses caused by the free travel scheme policy.

In a recent Facebook post, Seoul Mayor Oh Se-hoon said his office will try to resolve the issue through a two-track approach ― overhauling the public transit fare scheme while urging the central government to share the financial burden.

I actually really like the original sidebar there but it might be good to expand it just to emphasize that you can also post here for fun.

So it is not limited to holding the ruling class accountable.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s “manner legs” pose with his stance widened to match the eye level of the Korean National Assembly Speaker Kim Jin-pyo last week triggered contrasting reactions from media here and abroad.

During his three-day visit to Korea last week in celebration of the 60th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the two countries, Trudeau spent his second day in Korea, May 17, at the National Assembly to deliver a speech at the plenary session and met with Kim and lawmakers.

While having their photos taken, both were standing upright initially. However, in a playful move, Kim, who is reportedly 170 centimeters tall, stood on his tiptoes to match Trudeau’s height. The Canadian Prime Minister towers over the Korean National Assembly speaker by almost 20 centimeters.

In response, Trudeau bent his knees to align with Kim’s height. He then proceeded to widen his stance to level his gaze with the Korean delegate for the photos.

The gesture, dubbed “manner legs” in Korea, is a common practice among tall Korean male celebrities. They utilize this pose to match the height of those who are shorter, such as their makeup artists, interviewers, fellow actors and fans. The posture, which momentarily makes them appear shorter for certain camera angles, is seen as a gesture of respect towards the shorter individual.

Trudeau’s pose went viral in Korea and abroad, earning praise from the local media as a kind gesture.

Chosun Ilbo reported on May 17 that it was a “heartwarming scene,” where “the 20-centimeter difference in their height has unexpectedly created a cordial atmosphere,” and noted that the lawmakers and officials in the room “burst into laughter.” Local broadcaster YTN also reported the Canadian PM to be “as caring as he is tall.”

Canada’s daily news media Toronto Star reported, May 19, that the “wide stance Trudeau assumed is a sign of respect, according to Korean culture, and a way to discreetly lower one’s height.”

“Popular among Korean celebrities, the stance is a sign of respect and a way to accommodate for an individual’s tall height,” it said, quoting a Korean Canadian Lee Young-mi’s explanation that his attempt to match eye level could be considered appropriate in Korean culture.

This is not a bad suggestion

Of course, you could do this manually: create a group that only you can post to and crosspost content to it.

lol, right. I think that part of the article just must’ve been an aside about why he may have been inclined to do drugs, IDK.

Bro if you starred in one of the biggest films of the 2000s, I am not going to have much sympathy for any bullying that may have incurred.

“…> The kids made… light saber noises sometimes in my presence.”


lol I do not know why but that gets me

This is one of those weird occasions where the perverts seem prude, lol.

LOL - they killed the cash cow after hundreds of millions or even more were given.

What does society have to show for it?

Jordan Neely?
