Deep Thought: Prayers for Las Vegas Shooting Concert Victims Affected

Media Reports

Las Vegas shooting updates: 59 people are dead and more than 525 injured Oct. 2, 2017, 11:22 p.m. latimes.com
“…At least 59 people were killed and 525 others injured after a gunman opened fire Sunday night at a country music festival across the street from the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino on the Las Vegas Strip, authorities said.

What you need to know:

The FBI says there is no evidence of a connection to international terrorist groups, despite a claim of responsibility by Islamic State.
The suspect, 64-year-old Stephen Paddock of Mesquite, Nev., was found dead when a SWAT team burst into the hotel room from which he was firing at the crowd.
Portraits of the victims are emerging. One of the dead includes an off-duty police officer who was attending the concert. Rachael Parker, a Manhattan Beach Police records technician, was also among the dead.
The suspect’s brother said the family is in shock and that Stephen Paddock “has never even drawn a gun.”..”

Isis claims Las Vegas shooting: What have they said? | The Independent

“..Isis has claimed that the gunman who killed more than 50 people in Las Vegas converted to Islam several months ago.

The group did not name Stephen Paddock, the man identified by police as the shooter, in a statement released via its Amaq propaganda agency.
..”

Police said the 64-year-old white American opened fire from the 32nd floor of a nearby hotel, where he had multiple weapons and is believed to have killed himself.

More than 50 people have been confirmed dead and 200 injured in the shooting, making it the deadliest in US history.

The shooting started shortly after 10pm local time, with footage showing concert-goers throwing themselves to the ground and running as several extended rounds of automatic gunfire rang out….
It came after the group claimed responsibility for a stabbing attack that left two young women dead in the French city of Marseille earlier on Sunday.

Isis was also linked to a car and knife attack in Edmonton, Canada, where a police officer found a flag used by the group in the perpetrator’s car.

Las Vegas Gunman Stephen Paddock Wired $100K To Philippines, Where Girlfriend Traveled: Report Newsweek Christal Hayes,Newsweek 1 hour 33 minutes (10.3.17) ago yahoo.com
“…It was not immediately clear who the money was wired to or the date when the cash was sent. Paddock’s girlfriend, Marilou Danley, is from the Philippines and has family there.

She was not in the country Sunday when Paddock, her life-in boyfriend, attacked concertgoers on the Las Vegas Strip, leaving 59 dead and more than 500 others injured during a country music festival.

Danley was in the Philippines the day of the attack, according to NBC News. She traveled to Hong Kong on September 25 and is expected to return to the U.S. Wednesday, the news network reported.

At first, authorities called Danley an “associate” of Paddock because her ID was used to get his hotel room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

She was later cleared of any involvement in the shooting because she was not in the country, but Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo cautioned that could change because police want to speak when her when she returns to the U.S…”

Danley returned to Philippines – BI source
By Evelyn Macairan (The Philippine Star) | Updated October 4, 2017 – 12:00am

“…MANILA, Philippines — Marilou Danley, the Filipino-Australian earlier considered as a person of interest in the Las Vegas, Nevada shooting that killed 59 persons, has reportedly arrived in the country.

The Bureau of Immigration (BI), however, declined to reveal the travel records of Danley, 62, that would have confirmed if she is indeed in the country.

Danley reportedly arrived in the Philippines last Sept. 25 from Hong Kong..

“Based on reports, Marilou Danley is not a suspect and appears to have been cleared by the police, we are not inclined to release any information at this time, the information being confidential,” said BI spokesperson Ma. Antonette Mangrobang.

But they assured their foreign counterparts of the BI’s cooperation. ..”
New details emerge about Marilou Danley, girlfriend of Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock by William Wan, Sandhya Somashekhar and Marwa Eltagouri October 5 at 6:33 AM Play Video 1:10 washingtonpost.com
“..After being questioned, Danley said in a statement that she had no clue about his plans to carry out the massacre and pledged to cooperate with authorities struggling to determine what sparked the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history.

“I knew Stephen Paddock as a kind, caring, quiet man,” said Danley in a statement read by her lawyer Matthew Lombard, a criminal defense attorney. “He never said anything to me or took any action that I was aware of that I understood in any way to be a warning that something horrible like this was going to happen.”..

..

Danley is from the Philippines, but she lived for many years in Australia, where authorities have confirmed she is a citizen.

Danley has two sisters who live in Australia, according to news outlets there and old Facebook posts by the sisters, which have been deleted in recent days…

They were adorable — big man, tiny woman. He loved her. He doted on her,” Eric said at his home in Florida. The two often gambled side by side, he said.

Employees at a Starbucks in Mesquite, Nev., however, described the couple’s relationship differently. A supervisor at the coffee shop told the Los Angeles Times that Paddock often berated Danley in public. The Starbucks is the only one in town and is inside the Virgin River Casino.

“It happened a lot,” Esperanza Mendoza, supervisor of the Starbucks, told the Times. He would verbally abuse her when Danley asked to use his casino card to buy food…

More details have also emerged on Paddock, the gunman.

From 1976 to 1985, Paddock worked federal government jobs: as a letter carrier for the Postal Service, an agent for the IRS and an auditor for U.S. government’s Defense Contract Audit Agency, according to the Office of Personnel Management….

MN father shot in Vegas reunited with kids

“AS VEGAS – A Minnesota native seriously hurt in the Las Vegas shooting has been moved from the ICU and is now able to spend time with his children at the hospital.

Phil Aurich was shot in the back as he was running away on Oct. 1, joining the list of well over 500 people injured in the mass shooting at a packed outdoor concert.

“We got a call in the middle of the night,” said Phil’s sister-in-law Sheila Aurich. “And Ben’s phone rang and it was Phil. We turned it off because we knew he was at the concert and I was like, ‘It’s probably a butt dial.'”

But seconds later, Sheila and her husband Ben, Phil’s brother, received another call.

“There was all this background noise and again started to think again, it was just a butt dial, until we heard Ali screaming, ‘Ben, Phil has been shot.'”

Phil and his girlfriend, Ali, ran for cover.

“They had seen three ambulances, and a cop car blocking them off,” Sheila said. “So they ran toward that, but as they got there, all three pulled away and then the cop sitting there said, ‘I am not supposed to leave, but get in.'”

Phil was still conscious when they arrived at University Medical Center. He was rushed into surgery. Twelve hours later, he would undergo another operation.

“He had some fairly serious organ damage,” Sheila said. “They had to remove his spleen, part of his colon, a ruptured diaphragm, which collapsed a lung and a fractured rib.”

The 36-year-old father of two spent most of last week in ICU, not able to see his children when he began his recovery.

Synopsis: Good evening, I’m still reporting on the Las Vegas tragedy.
Here is what’s new:
1. “YourNewsWire” reports the following post on 4Chan on Sept. 11th predicting the Las Vegas shooting in a series of three mysterious posts:
Post #1 @ 05:08
Look I feel bad for some of you on this website. So I’ll let you in on a little secret. If you live in Las Vegas or Henderson stay inside tomorrow. Don’t go anywhere where there are large groups of people. Also if you see three black vans parked next to each other immediately leave the area. You’re welcome-John
Post #2 @05:28
It’s called the high incident project. They want to make the American public think that places with extremely high security aren’t say. They are trying to create more regulations. You will see laws proposed within the next few years to put up more metal detectors and other security devices. Media and politicians will be saying places with lots of police need even more police. I can’t guarantee anything will happen tomorrow but Las Vegas is on their minds.-JohnPost #3 @ 05:55
If there plan a successful state of Nevada I will pass a law in the future making all casinos have mandatory metal detectors and backscatter machines. Soon after a federal law will be passed to put these machines and universities, high schools, federal buildings, you name it. OSI Systems and Chertoff are the main producers of these machines. Sometime around 2020, Chertoff and OSI will merge into a single company. After they merge the owners will sell off all their stock and make billions in profits. Mr. Chertoff has been in contact with Sheldon Adelson. Mr. Adelson will become a huge sponsor of these machines and he will be the first to put them in his casinos when the law passes. This is my last message for now. Don’t expect me to return anytime soon-John

2. Marilou Danley, the girlfriend of the Las Vegas shooter, has returned to the United States cooperating with the FBI.
3. Danley has admitted that the shooter wired her $100,000 in the Philippines one week before the massacre, telling her to go buy a house for her and her family. Shooter’s brother says, “We’re wealthy people. $100,000 isn’t a lot of money.”

Did he act alone?

Despite initial reports of multiple gunmen, police do not believe at this time that there were any other attackers. Sheriff Joseph Lombardo, of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, described Paddock as a “lone wolf”. Officers were initially seeking his traveling companion – Marilou Danley – who has now been located. She is believed to have been his roommate, however the police have since announced they do not believe she was involved in the shooting.

Evidence Suggests Las Vegas Shooter Had Help, Sheriff Says
HuffPost Nick Visser,HuffPost Wed, Oct 4 9:42 PM CDT yahoo.com
“..Stephen Paddock, the 64-year-old retiree who sprayed bullets onto tens of thousands of Las Vegas concertgoers, probably wasn’t able to pull off the shooting on his own, police said Wednesday.

Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo told reporters during an evening news conference that he believed Paddock, who he referred to as “disturbed and dangerous,” likely received some form of assistance. Nearly 60 people were killed in the attack and almost 500 were injured.

“Do you think this was all accomplished on his own?” the sheriff asked, referencing the stockpiles of weapons and ammunition that Paddock acquired over decades. “You’ve got to make the assumption he had to have some help at some point.”

Police found 50 pounds of an explosive shooting target called Tannerite, as well as 1,600 rounds of ammunition in Paddock’s car parked outside the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

“It remained in the car for some reason,” Lombardo said of the material.

There were “well in excess of thousands of rounds still present in the room” when Paddock was found dead from a self-inflicted gunshot, Lombardo said. Additional guns and several pounds of Tannerite were found in Paddock’s home in Mesquite.

Authorities deemed Marilou Danley, Paddock’s girlfriend, a “person of interest” in the investigation. They interviewed her shortly after she arrived in Los Angeles from the Philippines on Wednesday, but the FBI said she wasn’t taken into federal custody.

Danley said in a statement that she was “devastated” by the attack, and had no indication Paddock had any plans to carry it out.

“He never said anything to..”

Here is yet even more concrete evidence that there were multiple shooters at multiple venues in the Las Vegas 91 Harvest festival psyop shooting event.

It would also seem that there is more proof here that people did die and get injured. Remember People can still die in False Flag and Psyop events,.

The main idea behind a false flag is to cause fear and casualties, sometimes even death, and then BLAME IT ON A FAKE ENEMY. All this to justify some gross indignation or radical agenda in the name of Peace and Safety.

The scumbags in charge do not care about human life. It is of no value nor consequence to them. The people that died during this event were a blood sacrifice for the demons in charge.

California teacher held at border checkpoint: “It made me feel sick to get asked” Last Updated Jul 26, 2017 3:13 PM EDT cbsnews.com
“.. A California teacher posted a video of border patrol agents detaining her after she refused to say if she was a U.S. citizen at a checkpoint in New Mexico, about 35 miles from the border.

The video has many wondering if she was within her rights or had an obligation to comply.

When San Diego resident Shane Parmely was stopped at a New Mexico border patrol station she refused to answer the agent’s questions. She was heading home from vacation with her three children and asked one of them to start recording the exchange.

The videos have generated thousands of views on Facebook and sparked a heated debate on immigration rights.

The middle school teacher says she did it after hearing her Latino friends talk about their experiences at checkpoints.

“It made me feel sick to get asked, knowing what my friends have been through. It just made me feel physically ill,” Parmely said. ..”

When a police shooting victim is a white woman-
The sympathetic reaction to Justine Damond’s death shows the relentless power of race in America.

Updated by German Lopez@germanrlopezgerman.lopez@vox.com Jul 24, 2017, 1:10pm EDT vox.com
“…It’s not just Breitbart. Conservative media, based on some sleuthing on Google, has been generally quiet about Damond’s death — which is notable on its own, given that these outlets often counter what they see as liberal news narratives with their own narratives, particularly when it comes to police shootings. As one example, a Google search turns up four stories on the Blaze, the network founded by conservative pundit Glenn Beck, about Damond, but there are pages and pages of results from the Blaze for each of the killings of black men like Michael Brown, Freddie Gray, and Philando Castile.

When conservative outlets have written about Damond’s death, they by and large have framed her as a victim. Here is, for example, Fox News: “Australian woman shot dead by Minneapolis police after calling to report possible crime.” And here is the Blaze: “Questions swirl after Australian woman is fatally shot by Minneapolis police; bodycams were off.”

Damond’s lawyer played into this as well, calling Damond “the most innocent victim” of a police shooting that he has ever seen. He quickly added, “I’m not saying Philando wasn’t innocent, too, or that Frank Baker wasn’t innocent. But here is someone who called the police and was trying to stop someone from being hurt … and ends up being shot in her pajamas.”

Ranking victims of police shootings is odd enough, but there are plenty of totally innocent victims of police killings besides Damond. Consider that, in Detroit, police in 2010 killed a sleeping 7-year-old when they stormed her home while looking for her uncle — though this girl, unlike Damond, was poor and black…”

Noor joined the Minneapolis Police Department in March of 2015 and was later celebrated as the first Somali officer for the 5th Precinct.

“..Religious Faith

During the same year as his wedding to Testolini, Prince also became a Jehovah’s Witness, embracing the faith after years of study though he was raised as a Seventh-Day Adventist. His mentor as a Witness was bassist Larry Graham, who had played with Sly & the Family Stone and thus was also a major musical influence.

Prince was believed to have taken part in what’s referred to as field service for his faith, having once visited a Jewish couple in Eden Prairie, Minnesota and leaving behind a copy of the Witness publication The Watchtower. His language and performance sensibilities changed somewhat, with some fans questioning how some of the conservative aspects of his religion jibed with the explicit nature of past songs. Contradicting the rock/soul persona, others have pointed out that Prince has historically had songs that were clearly Christian in nature, as seen with “The Ladder,” “The Holy River,” “The Cross” and “God,” the gospel B-side to the single “Purple Rain.” ..”

From the psychedelic Around the World in a Day to his masterpiece album Sign O’ the Times and experiments with hip-hop and jazz, Prince was one of most ambitious and prolific songwriters of his generation. He tested the boundaries of taste and decency with explicit sexual lyrics and stage shows during his early career and in the 1990s fought for ownership of his name and control of his music, played out in a public battle with his former label, Warner. Highly regarded as one of the most flamboyant live performers ever, Prince was a controversial and famously elusive creative force.

When Doves Cry by Prince songfacts.com
“.. Prince wrote this song for his movie Purple Rain. In the film, the song plays under a montage after his character loses his girl (Apollonia) to his rival (Morris – Morris Day of The Time). We see Prince riding his motorcycle along with shots of intimate moments with Apollonia. In the movie, Prince has a difficult relationship with his father, who beats his mom. Scenes of his father come in on the lyrics where Prince calls him “demanding.”

The film is semi-autobiographical, but how much is based on real life remains a mystery, as Prince rarely gave interviews and didn’t talk about his personal life. In the movie, the song expresses his fear of becoming like his parents. When the doves cry, that’s his musical refuge – the barrage of keyboards in the chorus represents the doves crying…”

10 Surprising Facts About Prince
mentalfloss.com
“…2. HE WAS A JEHOVAH’S WITNESS.

Baptized in 2001, Prince was a devout Jehovah’s Witness; he even went door-to-door. In October 2003, a woman in Eden Prairie, Minnesota opened her door to discover the famously shy artist and his bassist, former Sly and the Family Stone member Larry Graham, standing in front of her home. “My first thought is ‘Cool, cool, cool. He wants to use my house for a set. I’m glad! Demolish the whole thing! Start over!,'” the woman told The Star Tribune. “Then they start in on this Jehovah’s Witnesses stuff. I said, ‘You know what? You’ve walked into a Jewish household, and this is not something I’m interested in.’ He says, ‘Can I just finish?’ Then the other guy, Larry Graham, gets out his little Bible and starts reading scriptures about being Jewish and the land of Israel.”..”

Death

Prince: how did he die and what happened to his money? The big questions, a year after his death By Ben Bryant 21 April 2017 • 5:54pm telegraph.co.uk
How, exactly, did Prince die?
“..
Prince died on April 21, 2016, in a lift in his Paisley Park home in Carver County, Minneapolis, from an overdose of a powerful opioid painkiller.

A one-page autopsy report recorded his death as an accident and said “The decedent self-administered fentanyl”.

Many friends, relatives, and former girlfriends said they never saw him take drugs, although some – including his ex-wife – have said that in hindsight there were warning signs of his addiction.

There may have been other contributing factors that led to his death, but if so they could remain secret for a long time. Under Minnesota law the full autopsy report can be kept secret for up to 30 years unless the next of kin agree to release it. The question of who provided Prince with the drugs remains open, and the investigation is still active, according to Minnesota police.

Deep Thought: Are all “sins” equal?

Are all sins equal to God? Is all sin the same? gotquestions.org
“..So, although Jesus said that lust and adultery are both sins, that does not mean they are equal. It is much worse to actually murder a person than it is to simply hate a person, even though they are both sins in God’s sight. There are degrees to sin. Some sins are worse than others. At the same time, in regard to both eternal consequences and salvation, all sins are the same. Every sin will lead to eternal condemnation (Romans 6:23). All sin, no matter how “small,” is against an infinite and eternal God, and is therefore worthy of an infinite and eternal penalty. Further, there is no sin too “big” that God cannot forgive it. Jesus died to pay the penalty for sin (1 John 2:2). Jesus died for all of our sins (2 Corinthians 5:21). Are all sins equal to God? Yes and no. In severity? No. In penalty? Yes. In forgivability? Yes.
..”

All Sins Are Not Equal J.I. Packer/ DECEMBER 28, 2004 christianitytoday.com
“..Scripture shows that in God’s estimate some sins are worse and bring greater guilt than others, and that some sins do us more damage. Moses rates the golden calf debacle a great sin (Ex. 32:30)….

… Ezekiel in his horrific allegory says that after Oholah (Samaria) had ruined herself by unfaithfulness to God, Oholibah (Jerusalem) “became more corrupt … in her lust and in her whoring, which was worse than that of her sister” (Ezek. 23:11, ESV). John distinguishes sins that do and do not inevitably lead to death (1 John 5:16), picking up Jesus’ warning about the unforgivable sin (Mk. 3:28-30).

Unforgiveable sin?

What is blasphemy against the Holy Spirit? bibleinfo.com
“…Is there a sin that cannot be forgiven?
Yes, blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, is any sin that a person clings to by continually resisting the convicting power of the Holy Spirit. Keep in mind that there is not one specific sin that is unforgivable, such as lying, stealing or murder, but rather a perpetual hardening of the heart and willfully sinning against God and man (1 Timothy 4:2; Titus 1:15). In Acts 7:51, Stephen says the following to the Pharisees, “You stiff-necked and uncircumcised in heart and ears! You always resist the Holy Spirit; as your fathers did, so do you.” In a nutshell the unpardonable sin is any sin that a person doesn’t want to give up, confess, or even ask forgiveness for and additionally doesn’t want to hear any more about it from the Holy Spirit…”

What is the sin that leads to death, or the sin unto death, that John talks about? compellingtruth.org
“..Many interpretations exist regarding this “sin that leads to death.” Unfortunately, the text is not clear what this “sin” is. It does appear clear John wrote to believers and was speaking of physical death. For example, Ananias and Sapphira experienced physical death for their sin (Acts 5). In 1 Corinthians 11:30, Paul wrote concerning wrongful practice of the Lord’s Supper, “That is why many of you are weak and ill, and some have died.”

There is Sin that Leads to Death

1 John 5:14-21

by Cooper Abrams bible-truth.org
“…c. The unpardonable sin is in context a part of the dispensation of the Law. It is a specific sin of blasphemy, in which a person would credit the devil for the work of the Holy Spirit. The special circumstances involved in blasphemy can not be duplicated today. The Scribes and Pharisees committed this sin in attributing the work of Jesus to the Devil. (see Matthew 12:24, Mark 3:22, Luke 11:15)

People KILLED by God – The Bible Study Site biblestudy.org

“..Ananias and his wife Sapphira were New Testament believers. After selling some land, they decided to give the church PART of the proceeds but make it seem that they were donating the entire amount of the sale. The apostle Peter, however, saw through their mutually agreed ruse. After confronting each one separately regarding their sin, they both immediately died (Acts 5:1 – 10).

ORIGINAL TRILOGY

There is a correct order to show your children the Star Wars movies October 24, 2014 theweek.com
“…Let’s say you grew up watching the Star Wars trilogy, then had children sometime after 1999, when George Lucas started releasing the prequels.

When your kids are old enough, what order should they watch the films in? The order they were released — Star Wars (A New Hope) (1977), The Empire Strikes Back (1980), and Return of the Jedi (1983), then The Phantom Menace (1999), Attack of the Clones (2002), and Revenge of the Sith (2005)? Or the order the events happened in the Star Wars universe: Phantom Menace (I), Attack of the Clones (II), Revenge of the Sith (III), New Hope (IV), Empire Strikes Back (V), and Return of the Jedi (VI)?

Rod Hilton, a computer programmer in Colorado, has given this a lot of thought, and he probably has the best solution. His (correct) instinct is to start with New Hope (IV), because if you start with Phantom Menace (I) you lose the essential shock of learning Luke’s parentage in Empire Strikes Back. But he also wants to end on a high note — so, none of the prequels. Here’s Hilton’s “Machete Order,” named after his blog, Absolutely No Machete Juggling:

Next time you want to introduce someone to Star Wars for the first time, watch the films with them in this order: IV, V, II, III, VI…”
Star Wars From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia en.wikipedia.org

Update: Just watched it again (January 2nd 2016) and got this “relevation”-I was watching the scene where the evil guy tries to make Vader and his son Luke kill each other. He keeps telling Luke to “hate” (“let the hate flow through you…haha!”) and be “angry”. Fortunately, Luke remembers his teaching (mentored by Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda) to fight with “love“!

5 Christian Messages Found in Star Wars crosswalk.com
It’s Never Too Late for Redemption

“At the very end of The Return of the Jedi, just when it seems that all hope is lost, something incredible happens. Darth Vader, the longstanding antagonist of the series, sacrifices himself to save his son and defeat the emperor. Vader had believed he was too far gone to ever find redemption. He had done so many terrible things, betrayed so many people. How could he ever be forgiven?

Luke, on the other hand (no pun intended), never lost faith in Vader. In fact, he believed so strongly he was willing to pay the ultimate price for his forgiveness. There are many people like Vadar who look back on their mistakes and think it’s too late, but they are wrong. I doesn’t matter how far we’ve strayed or how mangled we’ve become, Jesus gave his life so that we could be forgiven (John 3:16). God doesn’t need to save you, He already has…”

We need to teach them that there is a real force and His name is Jesus Christ and in fact all things were created by Him (John 1:3; John 1:10) and through Him all things truly consist (Colossians 1:17)!

Rogue One review: this is the first Star Wars movie to acknowledge the whole franchise is about war Updated by Todd VanDerWerff@tvoti Dec 16, 2016, 11:14am EST vox.com
It’s often incoherent and messy. But it’s also beautiful and has a strong central theme.
“..But if the film is politically relevant, it’s only accidentally so, not intentionally. I say that not just because Rogue One was completed long before Donald Trump’s election or even Brexit, but because Edwards uses a kind of scattershot approach to political content in his films — he’ll give you just enough of an idea of what he’s going for, but he’s uninterested in pushing any further than that.

An early shot in Rogue One features Stormtroopers patrolling the streets of a city rife with tension between various factions, rolling around in a tank. At various moments, it calls to mind the US occupation of Iraq and police militarization of American cities. But it’s not entirely clear whether Edwards has thought about what these similarities might mean in the larger tapestry of Rogue One beyond “Do you get this reference?” It’s political commentary as Family Guy joke…”

Convoy of Hope Responds to Hurricane Matthew convoyofhope.org
“October 6, 2016 | 11:00 AM

SPRINGFIELD, Mo.As Haiti reels from the devastating effects of Hurricane Matthew, our team on the ground continues to work with local partners to distribute supplies to children and families in need. Because we pre-positioned supplies, we were able to begin distributions immediately after the storm. We have an international response team en route to Haiti to join our Haitian staff to best meet the needs of storm survivors.

Hurricane Matthew also tore through Cuba leaving mass destruction. We are working with partners on the ground to see what assistance they will need in the coming days.

A U.S. response team deploys later today for Florida to pre-position supplies as the Eastern seaboard braces for impact.

They will take a load of food, water and hygiene kits that can be distributed as needed. As always, our goal is to be among the first on the scene to help survivors quickly and efficiently. Similar to our responses for Katrina and Sandy, pre-positioning our teams and supplies enables us to do just that. ..”
Haiti: Samaritan’s Purse Responding to Hurricane Matthew
October 8, 2016 • Haiti samaritanspurse.org
“..This week Samaritan’s Purse sent two airlifts and 40 tons of water filters, heavy-duty plastic sheeting, hygiene kits, and blankets to help survivors of Hurricane Matthew in Haiti. A Disaster Assistance Response Team (DART) was also aboard our DC-8. They have joined our field staff in distributing these relief supplies to Haitians in desperate need. The 40 tons of supplies will reach 5,000 households.

“Hurricane Matthew has wreaked havoc on Haiti,” said Franklin Graham, president of Samaritan’s Purse. “Our teams are on the ground helping in Jesus’ Name. They’re going to do all they can to meet the needs of the suffering people there. Please pray for the people of Haiti as they recover from this deadly storm.”

Next week we are scheduled …”

The Killing Time: Inside Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte’s War on Drugs Rishi Iyengar / Manila @Iyengarish Aug. 25, 2016 time.com
“..The Philippines is hardly alone. Executing people for drug-related offenses, judicially or otherwise, is characteristic of the region. According to a report last year by drug policy NGO Harm Reduction International, the only countries other than Iran and Saudi Arabia known to have executed drug traffickers since 2010 are all Asian: China, Malaysia, Vietnam, Singapore and Indonesia.

Thailand conducted its own war on drugs in 2003 under then Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, and the events then — more than 13,000 arrests, over 36,000 cases of people surrendering to police, and nearly 1,200 deaths in its first month — will feel eerily familiar to Filipinos.

Two decades earlier, a wave of extrajudicial executions took place in Indonesia under its autocratic leader Suharto. They came to be known as the petrus killings after the Indonesian acronym for penembak misterius (mysterious gunmen) and had as their supposed aim a reduction in crime. Thousands were murdered in the period between 1983 and 1985.

Now, it’s the Philippines’ turn, and Duterte’s war may turn out to be the most ferocious yet. “This fight against drugs will continue to the last day of my term,” he said.

That day is six years away…”

‘… On the current evidence, and despite all the rhetoric about the big society and co-operative councils, neither the mayor nor most council cabinet members are really willing to do that. But they should. On the few occasions where councils and housing associations have gone down this route, they’ve ended up building more new homes, at a fraction of the cost, and without the terrible social costs…”

A New Olympic Sport: City Cleansing rioonwatch.org
“..All over the city there are projects which emphasize cleanliness, from the athlete’s village called “Pure Island” to developments in the Port Zone (part of the “Marvelous Port” Olympic legacy project) which seem to be trying to erase the history of slavery in the region. Real estate developers like Carlos Carvalho want to build entire areas solely for the noble elite, while the City’s strategy in Vila Autódromo has been to hide the favela in newly built housing. Private security guards have even been shipping the homeless out of touristic parts of the city to shelters up to 80 kilometers away. In February, the State Public Defenders joined 25 other organizations in writing a letter to the United Nations to denounce the “irregular apprehension” of minors in the street as a form of “preparatory ‘hygienization’ for the Olympics,” according to R7…”

Colombia’s ‘social cleansing’ phenomenon: Exterminating people like bugs
written by Thomas Graham April 21, 2016 colombiareports.com
“Legal authorities continue to turn a blind eye to so-called “social cleansing” practices that kill hundreds of “undesirables” in Colombia’s urban areas every year.

Social cleansing killings have a long, bloody history in Colombia’s major cities. For the most part they remain unsolved, yet to human rights monito…”

To begin with Los Calvos only attacked rapists, but as time passed their targets expanded to include delinquents, as well as drug dealers and addicts. They had their revenge, and they developed a taste for vigilantism. It has been reported that they are still active today, targeting the district’s crack-addicts….

Any other places you know of this “social cleansing” going on? What can “we” do about it?
