Former members have continued under three different groupings with new names, such as Aleph.

And why are these people allowed to continue in these newer groups, so they can pull this stunt again? They are NOT a religion but a cult and a terrorist group. Real religions don't perform terrorist acts or kill.

What day isn't an anniversary of something? Sorry, but making every single day a major remembrance of some disaster or another only lessens the importance of remembering it. I can see the 30th being a big one, or the 25th, etc., but these days they have "half anniversaries" or "half-coming of age days" for ten-year-olds, and wasn't it just the 8th annivesary of something else? Or was it the 13th? I forget.

That exact same year on April 19 in the US, Tim McVey pulled his terror act on a Federal building in OKC. There may be a reason for not wanting to remember the date. When I visited Lexington and Concord in 2019, I saw an entry sign stating the American Revolution 'officially' began there on April 19, 1775. Do the math. Tim McVey based his act on a neo-Nazi novel, 'The Turner Diaries'. He wanted to kickstart a Nazi revolution that thankfully didn't happen. On the 220th anniversary of Lexington and Concord. A sick coincidence? No.

At the bare minimum, Wikipedia is your friend. It was an apocalyptic totalitarian sect. It got a problem with anybody and everybody which was not a perfectly subservient member.

With the end of the millennium coming in 5 years there was a lot of sick crazy crap going on, all over the world. And look how things have been since. We must be diligent and never forget.

Well, we know the detained man won't get a fair trial in the CCP-run kangaroo court!!

He has been detained for nearly a year and hasn't even been told on what charges.

If what I've seen from a certain scene from 'The Last Emperor', these thugs will tell him to 'fess up' without even giving a hint of what offense to fess up to. An excuse for physical abuse.

Desert TortoiseToday  07:42 am JST

The US is basically a totally socialist country with the Federal Government running a centrally planned economy and deciding which areas of the economy get investment and which don't.

The US economy is about as far from socialism as is possible. The US invests the taxpayers money in specific industries critical to national defense, and/or to keep those technologies from migrating to nations who would happily use US tech against the US.

This is very beneficial. It will involve Americans running it, operating it and Americans laboring in it. Bringing the US into the 21st century. This can only be good for America.

That ever familiar chant. FYI, a Canadian folk-rock singer with the last name of Cockburn gets the same greeting at his shows. I've seen both Bruces.

I've seen Springsteen four times, each time better than previous. His shows are unpredictable, the set lists are too. Of course that's the charm right there.

even ripping his shirt open near the end of the show.

Wow. For being 74 Bruce is still at it. Mick Jagger doesn't even do that anymore, he didn't when I saw the Rolling Stones last time in May 2015.

Last time I saw Bruce he did dance with his mom onstage for 'Dancing in the Dark' (instead of Courtney Cox). May she RIP. Also at that show some boy got to sing some lines from 'Growing Up' with him. The boy got the crowd laughing when he said innocently, 'Mommy's piiiiiiissssssed'. and I have the whole show on a special nugs.net CD set to prove it.

Man, what a thrill. Bruce is the toughest act to get tickets for, harder than U2 and even the Stones. If you can, you MUST catch Bruce in action. He's essential.

When the entire royal family turns the page on Harry, really all you need know, the rest just details, including Trump trying to exploit Harry's deeply flawed character.

Harry embarrassed himself bigtime with his book last year, he's not arrogant like trump is but still grossly immature and a bit on the 'ninny'/wussy side. That's one trait the two have in common.

trump exploits and uses anybody for his sick evil pleasures. The royal family is not wild about Harry, and they're gonna drop him like a rock. We all know Treasontrump will do the same because he's totally unreliable. His own playhouse of cards is tumbling on him.

Does his opinion on anything mean anything at all? All the clues were there in 2016 - incestuous lust, pedophilias, racist talk, huge ego, boorish bullying, kissing up to Putin, sickening sexist talk, and more.

And since he has practically renounced his US citizenship by his treasonous acts, he has no right to say anything at all. He needs to shaddup and go away, to prison.

Leave the sick individual in jail! He is guilty as sin, I suggest the judge adding to the 30 years.

Red Flag Number One: his first wife was 15 years old.

He had at least 10 charges at his hometown of Chicago, nine rape and one nonrape assault. 10 more in Detroit, 10 in NYC, more charges in Atlanta, intentionally giving an STD in San Francisco and more. Add those charges and make it even, keep R Kelly in the clink for life. His track record spans light-years so don't ever let him out again, not even when he's 92.

Knew all of that already. I have always despised that virulent racist and segregationist (Booth) and all the Confederates. It's a terrible part of American history and they were all traitors who were on the evil side and lost. A lot of their descendants still haven't gotten over that.

Their descendants became MAGA cult followers. Look at what those Klansmen, neo-Nazis, neo-Confederates, militia cruds did at Charlottenburg in 2017. Diaper Don called them 'good honest patriots'.

And it was the same trash that followed trump's screams to 'LIBERATE!' one month into the Covid lockdown. And the same trash that stormed the Capitol on J6.

Joe said that they were 'insurrectionists, terrorists, Klansmen, neo-Nazis, neo-Confederates, anti-Semites, xenophobes, militia cruds' that night. You don't need to be a genius to see that.

Trump who has been found liable for sexual assault and guilty of fraud and in the coming months will probably be found guilty of the 91 felony charges he is facing would deport someone who hasn't been convicted of any crime.

If he's found guilty, they should send him back to his country.

That depends on whether there's an expedition treaty with the United Kingdom. As for trump, he should jailed for life in America, sans US citizenship.

This is simply indiscriminate targeting of whoever they think MIGHT be a "terrorist" regardless of innocent loss of life and limb.

Why has the claim of ‘presidential immunity’ not been an issue until now? Even Nixon resigned.

Has every other President in US history had their ‘strength, authority and decisiveness’ stifled by the threat of legal action? Or is it just 45, the only President in US history to be indicted.

What a coincidence.

Nixon was a crook and was caught red handed, but he knew that he wasn't above the law and didn't pretend to be. He knew his game was up.

And he wasn't a traitor either. He didn't attempt an insurrection either. Besides, trump has thrown his stooges under the bus so why should they support him?

However, sex offenders’ databases are only prefectural. There have been a few cases of teachers barred from teaching in one prefecture because of child sex offenses and they reoffend in another prefecture while working as a teacher. This move means nothing until Japan creates a national database of child sex offenders, like other countries have had for decades.

Once a teacher commits a sex offense, the license should be revoked permanently, forever.

Coulda beenToday  07:08 am JST

Why would a sex offender have records expunged after time.

Because Hamas is a terrorist group that killed and kidnapped innocent civilians, while Israel is a democratic country that puts terrorists in jail. It's called law and order.

That's the kind of language and the exact same words that the noted antisemite Roger Waters says all the time. Hamas is scum. The Israeli PM is a corrupt bonehead. He is using this unprovoked war as leverage for his own ambitions, which is personal power and to kill Gazans, as many as he can.

But that doesn't make Israel a 'fascist' or 'apartheid' state. People who say that are using projectionism themselves. Jew-bashers talk that crap fervently all the time.

If he fled to Europe it probably was because he was guilty and knew his chances were very low in a court of law. Since he has been there extradition laws that other countries have so far been his way out of US courts. He has not sought legal ways to deny the allegations and probably has some high end lawyers working for him, too. If he were in New York denying the charges he would have his day in court, but he's in Europe, where he fled from the guilty verdict. Since he's been there, he has kept more than his nose clean, if you know what I mean. Well, maybe.

Roman Polanski: ‘Everyone else fancies little girls too’ – Telegraph Blogs (archive.org)


He admits it himself and thinks 'everyone else' (whatever that is) is just as disgusting as he is. He's boasting about it!

> Fighto!Mar. 14  08:07 pm JST

Polanski is a paedo. If he was innocent of these crimes as he claims, he wouldn't have hid from justice for 50 years.

People who support Polanski endorse sex with minors - but won't admit it, of course.

Yet their sick ways come out in some manner and they can't hide it all the time. R Kelly bragged about laying with 11 y/o girls and his first marriage was to a 15 y/o. Donald Trump's incestuous lust is obvious and he often says 'the younger, the better'. Not to mention the things he said and did to those Miss Teen USA contestants.

Being a good movie actor or director or musician or anything gets you off the hook if you're a sick-o pervert or sex assaulter. Word is that Steven Seagal had similar allegations against him himself, he fled to Russia and is now a Russian citizen. He's a member of the Duma and is a lackey for Putin, constantly sassing off the U.S.A. He is a turncoat. And I liked his action movies too, a good stuntman. Now he's a runt.
