Genital mutilation victims break silence on 'demonic' practice

Clit-Hacking, It's Not Just For Muslims ...
Oh, Who Am I Kidding? Yeah It Is

From the Detroit Free Press:
It was the summer of 1990. Mariya Taher was 7 years old, vacationing in India with her family, when one day her mother took her to a run-down apartment building without explaining why. 
She remembers climbing some stairs, opening a door and seeing older women in a room. There was laughter, and the place seemed cheerful. But then came the betrayal. 
The child ended up on the floor. Her dress was lifted up. 
“I remember something sharp down there and then I remember crying,” Taher, now 34, recalls. “I remember my mom comforting me afterward and holding me in her lap.” 
A decade later, Taher would better understand what happened to her on that summer day in Mumbai. She had survived the taboo ritual of female genital mutilation, a decades-old religious tradition that millions of women worldwide continue to be subjected to, including a half million in the U.S., where a historic criminal case involving the practice is unfolding in Detroit. 
After years of suffering in silence, fearful of getting shunned by their families and communities if they denounced genital mutilation, they are speaking out and demanding change. They want the cutters punished, along with religious leaders and parents who continue to support a practice that is illegal in the U.S. and has been condemned by the World Health Organization. 
The Michigan case, they say, has emboldened them, particularly because the doctor's defense revolves around an all-too-familiar argument made by the Bohra community: that the mild, ritual "nick" or "shaving" isn't actual cutting. 
The victims disagree, they say, and they have the mental and physical scars to prove it. 
“It's taken me a long time to be as comfortable as I am," said Taher, who hopes that her Sahiyo campaign to end female genital mutilation will gain momentum from the Michigan case. 
"We can’t have this happening ... Whether it’s a tradition, for religious reasons or for sex, I see all of it as controlling someone. This is a form of gender violence. It’s a form of child abuse. It’s oppression.”

Boys Punching Girls: Feminism's Big Win

From PJM:
Moldylocks. It's all over social media, the Antifa chick in the dreds getting clocked in the forehead by a "Nazi" (whatever that means) at the Tax Day rally in Berkeley. The usual sources are outraged. The other side is wryly amused. For many years now Hollywood has been giving us heroines who are as strong or stronger than men. They take a punch but never go down. They kick ass. 
Those of us who live in reality know that this is pure fantasy, but there is a generation of youngins' who think it's possible for a 5'4", 100 lb. girl to fight toe to toe with a 6-foot-tall man and walk away with a bruise or two while leaving the man on the ground in a pool of his own blood. Lara Croft and a million other plucky FBI agents and CIA super spies with big boobs and deadly aim have taught us this. 
Twitter is attacking the "alt-right" for hitting a girl. The puncher, Nathan Damigo, is the founder of a white nationalist group at California State, Stanislaus, called Identity Evropa. The alt-right is raising money to buy ice for his hand. 
Does anyone see the irony in the social justice warriors complaining that a guy hit a girl? 
A girl who wants equality with men showed up at a Trump rally wearing weighted gloves, tried to punch a guy in the throat, and got laid out with one punch. For as long as I can remember, the feminists have told us they're exactly the same, if not better than men. S 
o why are we supposed to be outraged that one of them got hit in the face by a man? Isn't that exactly what she wanted when she jumped into the fray and started swinging? 
These people confuse me. On one hand, Moldylocks wants to be considered an anarchist warrior, bragging that she would take "100 nazi scalps" on social media. And now she's whining to anyone who will listen that she's just a 94 lb. shrinking violet who landed in the hospital after getting her clock cleaned by a big bad boy. 
I can't muster any sympathy. I tried. Her GoFundMe page goes so far as to call her a "poor girl." Oh, give me a break! This girl knew exactly what she was doing joining Antifa at the Berkeley rally. She was there to fight "nazis." She said so.
I feel sorry for me. I feel intense sadness for the women out here who never wanted this kind of equality, who knew that it would lead to guys punching girls. We raise our sons not to hit women and then women show up and beg to be hit. How on earth do we fix this? These gals have lost their ever loving minds and now we all suffer the consequences. Forget getting a seat on the bus when you're eight months pregnant, those days are long gone. Now, thanks to the rabid females on the Left, we have to expect to get punched if a brawl breaks out. No one is coming to protect us or shield us from the fray. Thanks a heap, ladies.

Comey's Go-It-Alone Strategy on Hillary Emailgate Emerged Because He Lacked Trust in Loretta Lynch

From The Hill:
FBI Director James Comey distrusted former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and senior officials at the Justice Department, believing they might provide Hillary Clinton with political cover over her email, according to a new report published Saturday by The New York Times. 
The Times described Comey’s “go-it-alone strategy” in the Clinton probe as emerging largely from his suspicions that Lynch and others at Justice might seek to subtly downplay the Clinton investigation. 
As an example, the Times reported that Lynch, during a meeting in September 2015, called on Comey to use the word “matter” instead of “investigation” when publicly discussing the case, three people who attended the meeting told the Times. 
Lynch reportedly reasoned that the word “investigation” would raise a number of other questions. 
Furthermore, she argued that the department should maintain its policy of not confirming investigations. 
After referring to the FBI the question of whether classified information had been improperly handled by Clinton through her use of a private server, a step toward a criminal investigation, 
Justice clarified that it was not a “criminal referral.” This also raised suspicions at the FBI, according to the Times. Clinton seized on the wording to say that what the FBI was conducting was “not a criminal investigation.” 
Lynch came under pressure to recuse herself from the investigation entirely after she had a discussion with former President Bill Clinton in June 2016 on he plane as it sat on the tarmac of Phoenix’s airport. 
Lynch did not recuse herself, but the situation did lead her to say she would accept what ever conclusions career prosecutors and the FBI reached.

Colorado Paper Refuses To Retract Letter Calling For Violence Against Frackers

From The Daily Caller:
A newspaper in Colorado has yet to retract a letter to the editor it published suggesting state residents would be “intelligent” to act violently against oil pipelines in their communities. 
The Boulder Daily Camera posted a letter to the editor April 19 that citizens have a moral obligation to destroy pipelines and eliminate oil jobs if they violate the sensibilities of Colorado residents. 
Editors altered the piece after publication, but left the writer’s basic thesis in place: violence may be the only way to prevent pipeline construction. 
“If the oil and gas industry puts fracking wells in our neighborhoods, threatening our lives and our children’s lives, then don’t we have a moral responsibility to blow up wells and eliminate fracking and workers?” 
Andrew O’Connor wrote in a letter to the paper’s editors. The letter was edited the following day to read “don’t we have a moral responsibility to take action to dissuade frackers from operating here?” 
The Camera’s editors did not include an apology to its edits. O’Connor’s piece is worthwhile, the editors noted, because it brings up philosophical ideas that are important to consider when discussing fracking. 
“This letter was edited to delete references that may have been construed to expressly advocate violence or property destruction,” the paper’s editorial board wrote. “The Camera does not condone or endorse violence or property destruction of any kind.”   
His letter still claims, “fracking equals murder” and says blowing up gas lines would be the “intelligent” move. O’Connor implies using violence against pipeline companies is a matter of self-defense.

Harry Reid's Role in Obamagate

From the American Spectator:
Last October, Harry Reid, the ruthlessly partisan former senator from Nevada, wrote a nasty and bumptious letter to FBI director James Comey. The letter remains a significant piece of evidence in Obamagate, as it confirms his role as conduit for Obama administration’s political espionage against Trump. 
“In my communications with you and other top officials in the national security community, it has become clear that you possess explosive information about close ties and coordination between Donald Trump, his top advisors, and the Russian government,” he wrote. “The public has a right to know this information. I wrote to you months ago calling for this information to be released to the public. There is no danger to American interests from releasing it. And yet, you continue to resist calls to inform the public of this critical information.” 
Who were those “top officials” whispering the fable of Trump-Russia collusion in Reid’s ear? One was John Brennan ...

More Female Genital Mutilation

... in Michigan, another Dr. was arrested for hacking off clits.

From Fox News:
Dr. Fakhruddin Attar and his wife, Farida Attar, were arrested just one week after officials arrested another Michigan-based doctor, Jumama Nagarwala, for performing FGM. 
Nagarwala is an emergency room doctor in Detroit. 
The Attars allegedly arranged and assisted Nagarwala in performing FGM out of a medical clinic that Dr. Attar owns in Livonia, Mich. Attar’s wife works at the clinic as office manager. The three are believed to be the first people charged under a federal law that criminalizes female genital mutilation (FGM). 
According to the criminal complaint, some of Attar’s victims, ranging from ages 6 to 8, are believed to have traveled interstate to have the procedure performed. 
Female genital mutilation is prevalent in some majority Muslim countries and is sometimes called “cleansing” by its practitioners. It involves the partial or total removal of the external female genitalia, often performed without anesthesia. It is designed to ensure females remain virgins until marriage. 
According to a 2013 census by the Population Reference Bureau, approximately 500,000 women and girls in the United States have undergone the procedure or are at risk of the procedure. 
In 2015, the issue of female genital mutilation received a wave of attention after Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt made a personal pledge of $100,000 to stop the brutal practice, after meeting Ayaan Hirsi Ali, an internationally known women’s rights advocate who suffered the barbaric practice at the age of 5. 
“I don’t see how anyone who believes in the rule of law and the rights of women could do anything other than support efforts to end female-genital mutilation, forced marriage and honor-killings — practices that have no place in the 21st century,” Schmidt said in 2015.

BAIL SET for Fresno Terrorist Kori Muhammad THOUGH HE MURDERED FOUR PEOPLE: He Demands “Let black people go in reparations!”

God, please strike down the Judge who approved bail in this case. Lightning, or whatever it takes, please.

From Jammie Wearing Fool:
A Fresno County judge on Friday ordered a psychiatric evaluation for suspected shooting-spree killer Kori Ali Muhammad, who entered the courtroom yelling, “Let black people go!” 
Muhammad, in shackles and wearing a yellow jail jumpsuit, made his first Fresno County Superior Court appearance since the deadly shootings of the past week, but the proceedings were suspended after the defendant’s outburst. He yelled: “Let black people go and reparations.” 
Muhammad’s mental competency was questioned by his public defender. Judge W. Kent Hamlin ordered a psychiatric evaluation. Muhammad’s arraignment was rescheduled for May 12. Gee, might he face “hate crime” charges? 
Police Chief Jerry Dyer has said the four killings were fueled by Muhammad’s hatred of white people. 
Muhammad is black. All of the murder victims were white. 
Court records say Muhammad has several aliases, including Kori McWallace, Kori Taylor, Corey Allen Taylor and Cory Allen Muhammad. He grew up in Fresno, but later moved to Sacramento, where he racked up nine criminal cases in Sacramento Superior Court between 1997 and 2004, including a gun conviction, online records indicate. 
His criminal record also includes making criminal threats, forgery, false imprisonment and driving under the influence, online records state. 
In October 2006, he was sentenced to federal prison after pleading guilty in U.S. District Court in Fresno to possession with the intent to distribute crack cocaine and being a felon in possession of a firearm in furtherance of drug trafficking. He released from prison in September 2001 and placed on supervised release.

Justice Department Threatens To Cut Federal Funding From 9 ‘Sanctuary’ Jurisdictions

Winning! Now With Extra T&A

We may disagree with Trump on certain issues, but man is he ever right on with this.

From the Washington Examiner:
The Department of Justice on Friday reprimanded nine “sanctuary” jurisdictions for failing to adhere to federal requests to detain illegal immigrants. It sent a letter warning the jurisdictions that they could lose certain federal grants if they fail to prove they are in compliance with federal law that requires them to communicate with federal officials about on immigration matters. 
The statute, 8 USC § 1373, prohibits local and state governments from enacting laws or policies that limit communication with Immigration and Customs Enforcement Customs and Border Protection about “information regarding the immigration or citizenship status.” 
The Justice Department said it “expects each of these jurisdictions to comply with this grant condition and to submit all documentation to the Office of Justice Programs by June 30, 2017, the deadline imposed by the grant agreement,” the letters from Acting Assistant Attorney General Alan Hanson read. 
The department sent letters to Sacramento, Chicago, Cook County, New Orleans, Philadelphia, Las Vegas, Miami, Milwaukee and New York City.

Somali Muslim Legislator Votes ‘Yes’ to Allow Life Insurance Payouts to Beneficiaries of Terrorists

Why do we allow Scuzlimas like this bitch in our country? What the fuck?
Omar was one of only two members of the Minnesota State House to vote against a bill that would allow life insurance companies to deny payouts to the beneficiaries of terrorists who die in violent attacks on Americans. 
The House voted 127-2 to pass the bill, which now moves on to a vote in the State Senate. Omar, who represents the heavily immigrant Cedar Riverside area of Minneapolis, was joined by fellow Democratic Rep. John Lesch of St. Paul in voting against the bill. 
Omar’s vote sticks out because at least 42 Somali refugees have been confirmed by the FBI to have left the U.S. to join overseas terrorist organizations, including al-Shabab, the al-Qaida affiliate in Somalia, and ISIS in Syria and Iraq. 
Dozens of other Somali-Americans have been tried and/or convicted of providing material support to overseas terrorists. 
Before she was elected she was an activist who often lobbied the Minneapolis City Council on progressive issues. 
Since her election as a legislator she: 
Opposed a bill to limit mass protests designed to disrupt streets, train service and airport access. 
Has been given her own Muslim Barbie icon, the “Hijarbie.” 
Visited her native Somalia to push for women’s leadership, raising the question of why Somali “refugees” are still pouring into the U.S. and other Western countries if the country is safe enough for former refugees to return and lobby the government for pet causes. 
Of course this bill supports terrorists just like similar ones do in Muslim regions… 
Democratic Rep. Debra Hilstrom said the goal of the Minnesota bill “is to make certain that folks don’t benefit [from terrorism] and this limits the beneficiary to the premiums that were paid in. It limits the exposure for the insurance company when someone is committing an act of terrorism.” 
Debra Anderson, leader of the ACT For America chapter in Minnesota, praised the legislators who voted for the bill Thursday. “U.S. life insurance policies that pay out to the families of terrorists reminds me of Muslim regions, such as Palestine, that also make ‘life insurance’ payments to the families of jihadists who kill in the name of Allah.” 
Anderson said Omar’s vote was reprehensible and shows where her allegiances lie. 
This is how Islam takes over nations. Muslims emigrate to non-Muslim countries, infiltrate the government, military and the police force and slowly push for Sharia law. This is stealth jihad. 
When we allow Muslims to be elected to public office and get sworn in on a Quran, we shouldn’t be surprised when they push for laws that favor Islamic terrorists.

Remember Those Two Egyptian Guys Who "Found" a Suitcase With a Pressure Cooker Bomb And Left It On The Streets of Manhattan Because They Supposedly Didn't Know What It Was?

Back in September, two Egyptian nationals were caught on CCTV images walking along NYC's sidewalk dragging a Louis Vuitton rolling suitcase which they claimed to have found unattended. Noticing it was heavy, they opened it and removed a plastic bag containing a pressure cooker which they left behind - possibly disarming the bomb components when handling. 

===>"Ali and Radwan can be seen in surveillance video discarding the plastic-wrapped bomb on the sidewalk before walking away with the bag. Authorities say the duo might have inadvertly disabled the device."<=== (see NYDailyNews link)

The news soon dismissed these two Egyptians as employees of an Egyptian airline (pilots/security) and released them. See this FBI info wanted poster for refresher: https://www.scribd.com/document/324800798/FBI-Poster

Also here:




Now consider this:

Notice, the reports do not reveal that these two Egyptian men were actually caught on video in the hotel with that bag before they claim to have found it on the sidewalk.

Fracking Sweeps Into China.

This is good news. It means even less power for Middle East Muslim nations.

China has been trying to use fracking to shifts away from traditional sources of energy such as coal power. Shale gas production has risen by 50.4 percent compared to last year, according to the Chinese National Bureau of Statistics. 
China produced 3.8 billion cubic feet of shale gas in March. To put this in some perspective, the U.S. currently produces 1,476 billion cubic feet annually.
U.S. experts expect China will continue to push fracking, but don’t see the communist country becoming energy independent any time soon. 
“It makes perfect sense for Beijing to push as hard as it can to rely on new domestic sources of energy wherever possible,” Harry J. Kazianis, director of defense studies at the Center for the National Interest, told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “And increased shale gas output very much fits into such a strategy.” 
China aims to boost natural gas’s share of the energy supply from 6 to 10 percent by 2020. In March, Beijing became China’s first city to have all natural gas-fired power plants.

The French, Coming Apart

From City Journal:
The real-estate market in any sophisticated city reflects deep aspirations and fears. If you had a feel for its ups and downs—if you understood, say, why young parents were picking this neighborhood and drunks wound up relegated to that one—you could make a killing in property, but you also might be able to pronounce on how society was evolving more generally. In 2016, a real-estate developer even sought—and won—the presidency of the United States. In France, a real-estate expert has done something almost as improbable. 
Christophe Guilluy calls himself a geographer. But he has spent decades as a housing consultant in various rapidly changing neighborhoods north of Paris, studying gentrification, among other things. And he has crafted a convincing narrative tying together France’s various social problems—immigration tensions, inequality, deindustrialization, economic decline, ethnic conflict, and the rise of populist parties. Such an analysis had previously eluded the Parisian caste of philosophers, political scientists, literary journalists, government-funded researchers, and party ideologues. Guilluy is none of these. 
Yet in a French political system that is as polarized as the American, both the outgoing Socialist president François Hollande and his Gaullist predecessor Nicolas Sarkozy sought his counsel. Marine Le Pen, whose National Front dismisses both major parties as part of a corrupt establishment, is equally enthusiastic about his work. Guilluy has published three books, as yet untranslated, since 2010, with the newest, Le crépuscule de la France d’en haut (roughly: “The Twilight of the French Elite”), arriving in bookstores last fall. 
The volumes focus closely on French circumstances, institutions, and laws, so they might not be translated anytime soon. But they give the best ground-level look available at the economic, residential, and democratic consequences of globalization in France. They also give an explanation for the rise of the National Front that goes beyond the usual imputation of stupidity or bigotry to its voters. Guilluy’s work thus tells us something important about British voters’ decision to withdraw from the European Union and the astonishing rise of Donald Trump—two phenomena that have drawn on similar grievances.

“Extremist” With Kalashnikov Shoots Three Police Officers in Paris at Champs Élysées, One Dead

From Reuters:
PARIS (Reuters) - A French policeman was shot dead and two others were wounded in a shooting in central Paris on Thursday night before the gunman himself was killed by officers, police and the Interior Ministry said. 
A second suspect thought to be involved in the incident on the Champs Elysees shopping boulevard just days ahead of France's presidential election was still on the loose. 
The famous wide street that leads away from the Arc de Triomphe that had earlier been crowded with Parisians and tourists enjoying a spring evening remained closed off at around 11:00 PM (2100 GMT), some two hours or more after the incident. 
France has lived under a state of emergency since 2015 and has suffered a spate of Islamist militant attacks that have killed more than 230 people in the past two years. 
The French prosecutors' office said the counter-terrorism office had opened an inquiry. Interior ministry spokesman Pierre-Henry Brandet said it was too early to say what the motive of the attack was, but that it was clear the police officers had been deliberately targeted. 
"A little after 9 PM a vehicle stopped alongside a police car which was parked. Immediately a man got out and fired on the police vehicle, mortally wounding a police officer," Brandet said. 
Officers at the scene said they were searching for a potential second assailant, and a police source said an arrest warrant had been issued for a suspect in the shooting who had arrived in Paris from Belgium by train.

North Korea nuclear threat: should California start panicking?

From The Guardian:
After five nuclear tests in a decade, North Korea has already shown that it poses a nuclear threat to South Korea and Japan, roughly 80,000 American soldiers stationed in those countries, and to China, its nominal ally. But although Kim Jong-un has dramatically increased missile testing since he took power in 2011, North Korea has yet to test an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) that could cross nearly 5,500 miles of the Pacific. 
North Korea would need to overcome two feats of engineering to threaten the American mainland: a working ICBM system and a warhead for one of those missiles. Unlike shorter-range missiles, long-range missiles have multiple engines and flight stages, meaning North Korean engineers have to make rockets – and bombs – that can survive the violent vibrations of launch, the wrenching g-forces of flight, and the temperature changes of takeoff and re-entry from space. 
“Producing a warhead that can handle all that is a challenge,” said Joseph Bermudez, an analyst for 38 North, a thinktank affiliated with the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies. 
Although Kim has said he wants to test an ICBM later this year, Bermudez doubted the test would be a success. Until North Korea begins ICBM tests, it will be difficult to gauge the country’s capabilities, said Joshua Pollock, a senior researcher at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies in Monterey, California. 
The US has reportedly made it more difficult for North Korea to get missiles off the ground, with a series of cyberattacks begun by Barack Obama. But government hackers alone probably cannot stop North Korea’s ambitions, Bermudez said. 
“It’s likely that any cyberwarfare campaign would not be able to stop either the nuclear program or the ballistic program, only delay it.” Donald Trump vowed on Twitter earlier this year that Kim would not test an ICBM, and his advisers have not ruled out pre-emptive military action.
In other words, the Trump Administrations actions are the height of prudence.

Berkeley Attacker Identified, Professor Eric Clanton

Here is video footage by YouTuber Shuttershot45, of the worst attack by Clanton. This video shows him throwing full force and point blank, a steel bike lock directly at a peaceful Trump supporter’s head. This attack led to a trip to the emergency room with a concussion and several stitches to the head for the poor victim.aa

The identity of the AntiFa communist, who is internet famous for the brutal attack on a Trump supporter in Berkeley this past weekend, has been finally revealed by the weaponized autism of /pol/. These particular American heroes have a mantra of “no one is out of our reach,” and today this has proven to be true. Eric Clanton, a former San Francisco State University Professor, has been identified as the attacker. His life is all uphill from here. He currently teaches at Diablo Valley College.
Thanks to amazing people at places like 4chan – /pol/ Trump supporters will always have underground detectives looking out for them while the mainstream media makes sure violent communists like ‘moldy locks,’ are able to start Go Fund Me pages and get away with throwing glass bottles at innocent people.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT ALL SERIOUS CONSERVATIVES (serious means, those who no longer buy the idea that the GOP is actually standing for Conservative values) WATCH THIS VIDEO

Islam and Favoritism in the Workplace

From The Last English Prince:
Is it possible? Is it possible that our fear of the monster in the closet actually creates a monster? Does our fear of the word “discrimination” capitulate to favoritism toward Muslims in the workplace? 
Ask me. Does my workplace capitulate? 
Latest example is within our sturdy volunteer corps upon which we are dependent for many tasks. As of late, a Muslim woman in hijab is seated at the volunteer desk. This desk is in the front lobby. This area presents the first public face of my mega-corporate hospital with the zillion dollar services. 
Did I mention that the volunteer dress code includes a beautiful red jacket, or at times a red vest? Most of our volunteers are retirees and I have always admired the nicely coiffed white hair with the red jacket accent. It speaks of elegance. 
There is capitulation for Muslim staff members too and I worry about epidemiology. Nurses tossed their caps years ago because studies showed we were sporting germ harbors on our heads. The caps had to go for the safety of our clients. 
The other day I noted a Muslim nurse leaning over a bed. Her scarf with long fringe was not neatly displayed. The fringes swept across the patient and bed as she provided care. I observed again as she entered the next room and repeated the process.

Republican Congressman Wants To Charge Enlistees For Their Education Benefits

Phil Roe - Republican Scum

If you don't think Republican stands for scum who can't get justice (Lois Lerner, John Kocksuckinman) done, but never met a tax they didn't like , then you are not paying attention:
A congressional proposal to make service members buy into their Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits surprised veterans groups on Tuesday, with advocates divided over whether it amounts to a long-term fix for the benefit or an unfair bill for veterans. 
“This new tax on troops is absurd,” said Veterans of Foreign Wars National Commander Brian Duffy in a statement. ] 
“Ensuring veterans are able to successfully transition back to civilian life after military service is a cost of war, and not a fee that Congress can just pass along to our troops. 
“Congress must stop nickeling and diming America’s service members and veterans.” 
The plan — draft legislation from House Veterans Affairs Committee Chairman Phil Roe, R-Tenn. — would deduct $2,400 from future service members’ paychecks to establish eligibility for revamped post-military education benefits. 
This was first reported Tuesday by Task & Purpose. 
Currently, the post-9/11 GI Bill offers full tuition to a four-year state college (or the equivalent tuition payout for a private school) plus a monthly housing stipend to any service member who spends at least three years on active duty, and to reservists who are mobilized to active-duty for extended periods. Troops wounded while serving are also eligible. 
Unlike the older Montgomery GI Bill benefit, the post-9/11 GI Bill does not require any fees or pay reductions for eligibility. 
The new proposal would change that, taking up to $100 a month from new enlistees’ paychecks for the right to access the benefit after they leave the ranks. The money collected would amount to a fraction of the overall cost of the veterans education benefit. 
Congressional staff estimate the move would bring in about $3.1 billion over the next 10 years, while total GI Bill spending is expected to total more than $100 billion over the same decade. 
Supporters of the plan say having service members “buy in” to the benefit would strengthen it against periodic attempts by budget planners to trim veterans education benefits. 
Last year, veterans advocates sparred over proposed cuts to GI Bill benefits given to the children of troops, and a plan to cap some housing stipends connected to the program.

NYPD says it is now investigating the Hudson River death of a pioneering African American judge as 'suspicious' even though she was initially thought to have committed suicide

The body of State Court of Appeals Judge Sheila Abdus-Salaam was retrieved fully clothed from the Hudson by the NYPD harbor unit on Wednesday.

Sheila Abdus-Salaam was found dead in the Hudson River Wednesday afternoon She was fully clothed, with no obvious signs of trauma suggesting foul play

She was divorced and recently remarried Reverend Gregory Jacobs in June 
Abdus-Salaam lost her 92-year-old mother to suicide in 2012 on Easter and her brother to suicide two years later around Easter holiday 
Police official said the 65-year-old judge was struggling with depression and that she had began taking medication just weeks before her apparent suicide 
Abdus Salaam was a groundbreaking judge who was also the first African American woman to serve in New York's Court of Appeals

FBI's Awlaki Surveillance Footage Revealed

From Fox News:
New files obtained through a federal lawsuit show, for the first time, FBI surveillance images of American-born radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki on the same day he spoke at a Pentagon lunch to promote post-9/11 outreach to the Muslim community. 
The FBI documents confirm the imam was under bureau surveillance as part of the “IT UBL/Al-Qaeda” investigation, but the information was not shared with the Defense Department’s Office of General Counsel, which sponsored the 2002 Pentagon lunch. 
The high-level FBI surveillance – including specialized teams, as well as video and photos – also calls into question the bureau’s explanation regarding a decision eight months later, in October 2002, by FBI agent Wade Ammerman. 
While Awlaki was held by Customs officers at JFK airport because of an outstanding warrant for the cleric’s arrest from the Joint Terrorism Task Force in San Diego, Ammerman told Customs to release him. The FBI has maintained Ammerman’s actions were routine.
