A Color Revolution in USA?Peter,Your comment about the talk by Jeffrey Lang regarding his conversion to Islam and how ending the culture war against Christianity will reduce the number of converts to Islam is totally irrelevant. Jeffrey NEVER mentions any thing about that in his talk. It was the abuse his mother suffered at the hands of his father that made him leave Christianity. I strongly suggest to every Westerner who wants to learn about Islam to listen to the many talks by Jeffrey on U-Tube. He understands Islam far better than many Muslims today..............Thanks. IbrahimComment (Peter M.):Ibrahim, > Jeffrey NEVER mentions any thing about that in his talkThat is my idea. I made that clear; I did not attribute it to him.My point is that many people who convert to Islam do so after a period of Atheism - like him. > abuse his mother suffered at the hands > of his father that made him leave ChristianityThat could happen in any religion.(2) Trudeau's greeting to Biden pushes Trans issuesFrom: Eric Walberg <>Subject: Re: biden trudeau inclusionhere's Trudeau's greeting to Biden:"We will further build on this foundation as we continue to keep our people safe and healthy from the impacts of the global COVID-19 pandemic, and work to advance peace and inclusion, economic prosperity, and climate action around the world."this looks bad. putting gay and trans in the headlines, pushing biden on bathrooms's a witchhunt here.

Then if they obey you, seek not a way against them.Muslim scholars who permit hitting, emphasize that it must not be harsh, but rather light. Muslim men are never to hit their spouse's face, nor to hit them in such a way as would leave marks on their body. Scholars suggest that the response administered should be in proportion to the fault committed.As for homosexuality and transgender, there is only vague mention of some men who are ‘without the defining skills of males’.24:31 in Nisa:16, any sex outside marriage is a sin (ie, male-female, male-male) and the advice is to ostracize offenders (after 4 witnesses tesitfy, ie, unlikely), unless they repent and then forgive them.and there's no punishment. they were always recognized in india (and now pakistan).this is the best analysis of transgender in Muslim society. but gaylib and our neoliberal thought police aren't interested in tradition societies, instead the 'gay international'/ imperialism just creates bigotry where there was none.Nimra Khan, Third Sex Lahore Critical Muslim (2019)... The position of the Third Sex in Islam is somewhat ambiguous. Although the Qur’an does not make direct references to the Third Sex, there are some verses that may be portrayed as such. Take, for example, 24:31, which speaks of some men who are ‘without the defining skills of males’. This is possibly a reference to men with female gender identity, therefore acknowledging their existence in the society. Or consider, 42: 49-50: ‘To Allah belongs the dominion over the heavens and the earth. Allah creates what He wills. He prepares for whom He wills females, and prepares for whom He wills males. Or Allah marries together the males and the females, and makes those whom He wills to be ineffectual.The police, who have been notoriously involved in the maltreatment of khawaja siras, have been especially warned to cease all forms of harassment under threat of serious prosecution. The Supreme Court went further. It recommended that qualified khawaja siras now be given 2 per cent of the jobs in all sectors. According to the ruling, a Third Sex applicant with a tenth grade education is now deemed to have the same qualifications for government work as another citizen with a bachelor’s degree. Moreover, in 2010, khawaja siras were also appointed as tax collectors. Using their special skills of persuasion, it has been reported, they have successfully collected hefty amounts of unpaid dues. Thus, the past few years have seen much official progress for the rights of the Third Sex…  ‘The government can’t even provide basic necessities to entities they regard as individuals here, you think they would care for non-entities like us? We’re not people to them. We’re not even human. So while the common man has no electricity, gas and water, you think us lesser beings are going to fare any better?’ says Khushbu with visible insouciance.Some Muslim khawaja siras chose against getting their gender changed, as by doing so, they would be forbidden from performing pilgrimage, as Saudi Arabia does not recognize the Third Sex. The two percent quota allocation of jobs has only seen one province out of the four employing khawaja siras. The right to vote emboldened five members of the community to run for political office during the 2013 general election, but all failed to obtain a seat. anthropology of south asian third sex tradition both scholarly and actual.

It would take me hours and hours to give you all my thoughts on it all so I will just touch on what for me are the main issues. From what I have read elsewhere it is my understanding that it is generally accepted that in a legal sense no right exists to not be offended. (See the famous Jordan Peterson - Cathy Newman interview on Youtube for a convincing exposé for why we should have the right to cause offence) though the right to cause offence should not be construed as a right to incite violence.However such a right has been claimed in recent years in many spheres and is the basis of so called hate speech laws which it seems to me are then used to suppress freedom of speech. It is also exploited by the "woke brigade"I do not understand why holocaust denial is illegal in countries with free speech. Certainly it would be offensive to many people and perhaps it could be argued that it is inciting violence which could be a justification for making it illegal but for me it is a conundrum. And it is not difficult to argue double standards when holocaust denial is a crime and publishing cartoons about mohamed is notTo understand some aspects of the article you need to understand the French notion of "laicity" or secularism which basically requires that religion and the state should be separate. I understand this law of 1905 as a belated expression of one aspect of the French revolution around 1789-93 when not only was the monarchy overthrown but also the church was attacked for its complicity with the monarchy and also for its perceived oppression of the people. This law has been the basis of the ban on muslims wearing headscarves in public schools - the scarves being deemed a religious symbol.Preservation of this notion laicity pushes the French state in a direction which in anglo-saxon countries would be regarded as intolerance. In some municipalities with majority muslim populations there is a worry about muslim norms being institutued - eg in the municipal pool having separate times for women to swim; this is anathema to many French people - as assault against the French way of life. Such thinking was also behind the ban on the "burkini". In Australia in some pools now I think there are separate times for men and women to accommodate muslims - is this the case ?- I think I read that somewhere recently.(Off on a delicious tangent - in the UK recently there has been quite a bit of angst about transgender women (biological males) being allowed to swim in a public "women only" pool - a long established women's pool that predates muslim influence!)Part of Macron's reaction to the teacher being decapitated has been to ban all home schooling from next year. He is targeting home and private schooling where children are taught in a spirit that does not conform to "republican values". Not only will muslim home schooling be banned but all home schooling.The "republic" is a sacrosanct notion in France. It is I think a means of celebrating the success of the revolution when the people took back the country from the monarchy. On any solemn occasion when a president gives a speech it always finishes with "Vive la republique, vive la France" - long live the republic, long live France. And schools are seen as very important for inculcating republican values.Macron is also trying to combat what he calls separatism - in some suburbs with largely muslim populations it is thought that women's freedoms are curtailed and this of course is intolerable in a country whose motto is liberty, fraternity equality - and the separatism here is muslim separatismIn general the article is written from the perspective of a believer in Jewish conspiracies to take over the world and I don't buy into that theory.As for Macron's ascendancy - I have read that he was recommended to Hollande by Attali. Macron had worked with Attali in some government commission around 2005 and Attali was impressed by him. It is possible in France for a Minister to be appointed; it isn't necessary to be voted into parliament to become a Minister, you can just be picked up off the street and appointed. That is how Macron became a Minister under Hollande. More recently, a few months ago, a new Prime Minister was appointed and along with him at least one other Minister.Macron's acendancy owes much to the disintegration of the left under Hollande and the shambles that became the right when the heir apparent Filon was shown to be a rather unscrupulous person - probably a victim of a political vendetta, but nevertheless undone by his own very questionable behaviour. Until he was unmasked I thought he would be a wonderful president, very worthy of the job. Last time round it was Macron finally against Le Pen and left and right voted against her rather than for Macron. He didn't win a majority of the electorate - a lot abstained. However, his party won a sound majority in the parliamentary election, which boosted his legitimacy.In recent regional elections his party has flopped. His success last time was due to the electorate wanting a change from the traditional left and right parties and Macron projected a party assimilating the best of both sides.I don't think his party will do so well next time - already a number of his parliamentarians have defected, but he could well be re-elected since there seems at present no credible alternative on the left or right.I don't think Macron set out purposely to create a muslim backlash. A lot of French muslims have condemned the killing of the teacher and the attack in the Nice cathedral.While Christianity seems to be in decline around the world, with fewer and fewer fervent believers and regular practioners, both Jewish and muslim faiths seem to be holding their ground. Is this correct? Do you have any explantions?(7) NYT (2012): Error and Fraud in Postal Voting; granny farming in Nursing Homes and Fraud at Issue as Absentee Voting RisesBy Adam LiptakOct. 6, 2012TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — On the morning of the primary here in August, the local elections board met to decide which absentee ballots to count. It was not an easy job.The board tossed out some ballots because they arrived without the signature required on the outside of the return envelope. It rejected one that said "see inside" where the signature should have been. And it debated what to do with ballots in which the signature on the envelope did not quite match the one in the county’s files."This ‘r’ is not like that ‘r,’ " Judge Augustus D. Aikens Jr. said, suggesting that a ballot should be rejected.Ion Sancho, the elections supervisor here, disagreed. "This ‘k’ is like that ‘k,’ " he replied, and he persuaded his colleagues to count the vote.Scenes like this will play out in many elections next month, because Florida and other states are swiftly moving from voting at a polling place toward voting by mail. In the last general election in Florida, in 2010, 23 percent of voters cast absentee ballots, up from 15 percent in the midterm election four years before. Nationwide, the use of absentee ballots and other forms of voting by mail has more than tripled since 1980 and now accounts for almost 20 percent of all votes.Yet votes cast by mail are less likely to be counted, more likely to be compromised and more likely to be contested than those cast in a voting booth, statistics show. Election officials reject almost 2 percent of ballots cast by mail, double the rate for in-person voting."The more people you force to vote by mail," Mr. Sancho said, "the more invalid ballots you will generate."Election experts say the challenges created by mailed ballots could well affect outcomes this fall and beyond. If the contests next month are close enough to be within what election lawyers call the margin of litigation, the grounds on which they will be fought will not be hanging chads but ballots cast away from the voting booth.In 2008, 18 percent of the votes in the nine states likely to decide this year’s presidential election were cast by mail. That number will almost certainly rise this year, and voters in two-thirds of the states have already begun casting absentee ballots. In four Western states, voting by mail is the exclusive or dominant way to cast a ballot.The trend will probably result in more uncounted votes, and it increases the potential for fraud. While fraud in voting by mail is far less common than innocent errors, it is vastly more prevalent than the in-person voting fraud that has attracted far more attention, election administrators say.In Florida, absentee-ballot scandals seem to arrive like clockwork around election time. Before this year’s primary, for example, a woman in Hialeah was charged with forging an elderly voter’s signature, a felony, and possessing 31 completed absentee ballots, 29 more than allowed under a local law.The flaws of absentee voting raise questions about the most elementary promises of democracy. "The right to have one’s vote counted is as important as the act of voting itself," Justice Paul H. Anderson of the Minnesota Supreme Court wrote while considering disputed absentee ballots in the close 2008 Senate election between Al Franken and Norm Coleman.Voting by mail is now common enough and problematic enough that election experts say there have been multiple elections in which no one can say with confidence which candidate was the deserved winner. The list includes the 2000 presidential election, in which problems with absentee ballots in Florida were a little-noticed footnote to other issues.In the last presidential election, 35.5 million voters requested absentee ballots, but only 27.9 million absentee votes were counted, according to a study by Charles Stewart III, a political scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He calculated that 3.9 million ballots requested by voters never reached them; that another 2.9 million ballots received by voters did not make it back to election officials; and that election officials rejected 800,000 ballots. That suggests an overall failure rate of as much as 21 percent.Some voters presumably decided not to vote after receiving ballots, but Mr. Stewart said many others most likely tried to vote and were thwarted. "If 20 percent, or even 10 percent, of voters who stood in line on Election Day were turned away," he wrote in the study, published in The Journal of Legislation and Public Policy, "there would be national outrage."The list of very close elections includes the 2008 Senate race in Minnesota, in which Mr. Franken’s victory over Mr. Coleman, the Republican incumbent, helped give Democrats the 60 votes in the Senate needed to pass President Obama’s health care bill. Mr. Franken won by 312 votes, while state officials rejected 12,000 absentee ballots. Recent primary elections in New York involving Republican state senators who had voted to allow same-sex marriage also hinged on absentee ballots.There are, of course, significant advantages to voting by mail. It makes life easier for the harried, the disabled and the elderly. It is cheaper to administer, makes for shorter lines on election days and allows voters more time to think about ballots that list many races. By mailing ballots, those away from home can vote. Its availability may also increase turnout in local elections, though it does not seem to have had much impact on turnout in federal ones.Still, voting in person is more reliable, particularly since election administrators made improvements to voting equipment after the 2000 presidential election.There have been other and more controversial changes since then, also in the name of reliability and efficiency. Lawmakers have cut back on early voting in person, cracked down on voter registration drives, imposed identification requirements, made it harder for students to cast ballots and proposed purging voter rolls in a way that critics have said would eliminate people who are eligible to vote.But almost nothing has been done about the distinctive challenges posed by absentee ballots. To the contrary, Ohio’s Republican secretary of state recently sent absentee ballot applications to every registered voter in the state. And Republican lawmakers in Florida recently revised state law to allow ballots to be mailed wherever voters want, rather than typically to only their registered addresses."This is the only area in Florida where we’ve made it easier to cast a ballot," Daniel A. Smith, a political scientist at the University of Florida, said of absentee voting.He posited a reason that Republican officials in particular have pushed to expand absentee voting. "The conventional wisdom is that Republicans use absentee ballots and Democrats vote early," he said.Republicans are in fact more likely than Democrats to vote absentee. In the 2008 general election in Florida, 47 percent of absentee voters were Republicans and 36 percent were Democrats.There is a bipartisan consensus that voting by mail, whatever its impact, is more easily abused than other forms. In a 2005 report signed by President Jimmy Carter and James A. Baker III, who served as secretary of state under the first President George Bush, the Commission on Federal Election Reform concluded, "Absentee ballots remain the largest source of potential voter fraud."On the most basic level, absentee voting replaces the oversight that exists at polling places with something akin to an honor system."Absentee voting is to voting in person," Judge Richard A. Posner of the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit has written, "as a take-home exam is to a proctored one."Fraud Easier Via MailElection administrators have a shorthand name for a central weakness of voting by mail. They call it granny farming."The problem," said Murray A. Greenberg, a former county attorney in Miami, "is really with the collection of absentee ballots at the senior citizen centers." In Florida, people affiliated with political campaigns "help people vote absentee," he said. "And help is in quotation marks."Voters in nursing homes can be subjected to subtle pressure, outright intimidation or fraud. The secrecy of their voting is easily compromised. And their ballots can be intercepted both coming and going.The problem is not limited to the elderly, of course. Absentee ballots also make it much easier to buy and sell votes. In recent years, courts have invalidated mayoral elections in Illinois and Indiana because of fraudulent absentee ballots.Voting by mail also played a crucial role in the 2000 presidential election in Florida, when the margin between George W. Bush and Al Gore was razor thin and hundreds of absentee ballots were counted in apparent violation of state law. The flawed ballots, from Americans living abroad, included some without postmarks, some postmarked after the election, some without witness signatures, some mailed from within the United States and some sent by people who voted twice. All would have been disqualified had the state’s election laws been strictly enforced.In the recent primary here, almost 40 percent of ballots were not cast in the voting booth on the day of the election. They were split between early votes cast at polling places, which Mr. Sancho, the Leon County elections supervisor, favors, and absentee ballots, which make him nervous."There has been not one case of fraud in early voting," Mr. Sancho said. "The only cases of election fraud have been in absentee ballots."Efforts to prevent fraud at polling places have an ironic consequence, Justin Levitt, a professor at Loyola Law School, told the Senate Judiciary Committee September last year. They will, he said, "drive more voters into the absentee system, where fraud and coercion have been documented to be real and legitimate concerns.""That is," he said, "a law ostensibly designed to reduce the incidence of fraud is likely to increase the rate at which voters utilize a system known to succumb to fraud more frequently."Clarity Brings Better ResultsIn 2008, Minnesota officials rejected 12,000 absentee ballots, about 4 percent of all such votes, for the myriad reasons that make voting by mail far less reliable than voting in person.The absentee ballot itself could be blamed for some of the problems. It had to be enclosed in envelopes containing various information and signatures, including one from a witness who had to attest to handling the logistics of seeing that "the voter marked the ballots in that individual’s presence without showing how they were marked." Such witnesses must themselves be registered voters, with a few exceptions.Absentee ballots have been rejected in Minnesota and elsewhere for countless reasons. Signatures from older people, sloppy writers or stroke victims may not match those on file. The envelopes and forms may not have been configured in the right sequence. People may have moved, and addresses may not match. Witnesses may not be registered to vote. The mail may be late.But it is certainly possible to improve the process and reduce the error rate.Here in Leon County, the rejection rate for absentee ballots is less than 1 percent. The instructions it provides to voters are clear, and the outer envelope is a model of graphic design, with a large signature box at its center.The envelope requires only standard postage, and Mr. Sancho has made arrangements with the post office to pay for ballots that arrive without stamps.Still, he would prefer that voters visit a polling place on Election Day or beforehand so that errors and misunderstandings can be corrected and the potential for fraud minimized."If you vote by mail, where is that coming from?" he asked. "Is there intimidation going on?"Last November, Gov. Rick Scott, a Republican, suspended a school board member in Madison County, not far from here, after she was arrested on charges including absentee ballot fraud.The board member, Abra Hill Johnson, won the school board race "by what appeared to be a disproportionate amount of absentee votes," the arrest affidavit said. The vote was 675 to 647, but Ms. Johnson had 217 absentee votes to her opponent’s 86. Officials said that 80 absentee ballots had been requested at just nine addresses. Law enforcement agents interviewed 64 of the voters whose ballots were sent; only two recognized the address.Ms. Johnson has pleaded not guilty.Election law experts say that pulling off in-person voter fraud on a scale large enough to swing an election, with scores if not hundreds of people committing a felony in public by pretending to be someone else, is hard to imagine, to say nothing of exceptionally risky.There are much simpler and more effective alternatives to commit fraud on such a scale, said Heather Gerken, a law professor at Yale."You could steal some absentee ballots or stuff a ballot box or bribe an election administrator or fiddle with an electronic voting machine," she said. That explains, she said, "why all the evidence of stolen elections involves absentee ballots and the like."Michigan GOP Identifies Software "Glitch" in Voting System – One County Had 6,000 Wrongly Assigned Biden Votes Corrected To Trump When Fixed(8) Dominion voting software "glitches" seem to favour Democrats GOP Identifies Software "Glitch" in Voting System – One County Had 6,000 Wrongly Assigned Biden Votes Corrected To Trump When Fixed…Posted on November 6, 2020 by sundanceAccording to the Michigan GOP Chair: Dozens of Michigan counties used the same <> Dominion voting software that caused 6,000 votes in one county to switch from Trump to Biden.

A Harris (Biden) regime will return to 'business as usual' and be more aggressive. That is the reason why I for one will miss Trump.The unceremonial dethronement of Trump will also have domestic consequences. His voters will inevitably call it a fraud. A Harris (Biden) administration is unlikely to have the funds needed to fight the pandemic and its disastrous economic consequences. That together could give rise to a challenger who combines Trump's rightwing populism with political competence. That is a prospect everyone should fear.Ever since Donald Trump entered the political stage he was fought by the military-media-intelligence establishment with ruthless campaigns <> designed to regime change him:The seeds of this scheme were planted several months prior to the 2016 election when Hillary Clinton authorized a smear campaign against Trump alleging that he's secretly a "Russian agent". It was hoped that this would discredit the race's frontrunner and thus result in handing her the presidency that November. This eventually morph into the discredited "Steele dossier" and the subsequent Russiagate conspiracy theory. The purpose of these information warfare provocations was to delegitimize Trump's election, insincerely present the Democrats as the guardians of America's electoral integrity, and therefore powerfully shape public perceptions ahead of the 2020 election. During the interim, a related narrative was weaponized claiming that Trump is a corrupt lawbreaker and wannabe dictator who'll cling to power at all costs.Now, as it seems that Joe Biden may win the presidency, there is no longer a need to promote the fake 'Russiagate' stories.Bryan MacDonald @27khv - <> 10:37 UTC · Nov 7, 2020Amazing how quick the "Russian meddling" narrative died, in the US, once it became clear that the 'correct' candidate was going to win the election, wasn't it?After all, the folk who pushed it don't want to delegitimise Joe Biden's forthcoming presidency.Just in time for the election three major pillars of 'Russiagate' were thoroughly debunked and quietly buried. [...]Mainstream media has played a huge role in eroding American confidence in our elections. They spent four years saying Trump’s 2016 win was just a gift from Putin. Now the media is incredulous that so many Americans don’t trust the electoral system they succeeded in discrediting.Given the way Trump was fought throughout the last four and a half years it is hard to believe that the current part of the process, especially the counting of absentee / mail-in votes, is handled without similar shenanigans taking place.Consider what a 2012 New York Times piece <> on mail-in ballots had to say:Election administrators have a shorthand name for a central weakness of voting by mail.

The county uses Dominion Voting Systems equipment and results are manually transported on computer cards from the precincts to county offices, where they are uploaded onto another computer, she said.Dominion markets themselves as "a leading industry supplier of election technology across the U.S., Canada and globally" and boasts a "U.S. Footprint" that serves "More Than 40% of Voters in 28 states plus Puerto Rico, 9 of the Top 20 Counties, 4 of the Top 10 Counties."And now it’s been reported by <> Politico that Dominion’s voting systems used in the state of Georgia, a state that has not finished counting and currently has Biden with a lead of just under 8,000 votes, had a ‘glitch’ that stopped voting in both Morgan and Spaulding Counties – caused by a software update that was uploaded to voting machines the day before the election.Marcia Ridley, elections supervisor for Spaulding County, told Politico:"That is something that they don’t ever do. I’ve never seen them update anything the day before the election."A Georgia Superior Court Judge had to extend voting until 11 p.m. on election night due to the technical problems with the voting systems.These two recent ‘glitches’ in state voting systems have raised suspicions of possible election fraud. Technology experts, including former NSA technical director William Binney, are speaking out: glass@AussieVal10Wow - the evidence keeps mounting - it’s not a glitch - it’s been programmed to flip votes
