The world marked International Holocaust Remembrance Day on Sunday amid a revival of hate-inspired violence and signs that younger generations know less and less about the genocide of Jews, Roma and others by Nazi Germany during World War II.

74 years ago, the Auschwitz death camp in Poland was liberated.

Six million Jews were murdered at the hands of the Nazi’s between 1941 to 1945.

It’s hard to believe that in 2019 Nazi bastards still exist.

And to the few survivors left now, I hope their lives are blessed.

The Washington Post reports:

President Trump has gone to extraordinary lengths to conceal details of his conversations with Russian President Vladi­mir Putin, including on at least one occasion taking possession of the notes of his own interpreter and instructing the linguist not to discuss what had transpired with other administration officials, current and former U.S. officials said.

Trump did so after a meeting with Putin in 2017 in Hamburg that was also attended by then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. U.S. officials learned of Trump’s actions when a White House adviser and a senior State Department official sought information from the interpreter beyond a readout shared by Tillerson.

The constraints that Trump imposed are part of a broader pattern by the president of shielding his communications with Putin from public scrutiny and preventing even high-ranking officials in his own administration from fully knowing what he has told one of the United States’ main adversaries.

It’s a sad day when the President of the United States can’t trust his own staff to be loyal to Russia.

Japan is facing international condemnation after confirming it will resuming commercial whaling for the first time in more than 30 years.

The country’s fleet will resume commercial operations in July next 2019, the government’s chief spokesman, Yoshihide Suga, said of the decision to defy the 1986 global ban on commercial whaling.

Suga told reporters the country’s fleet would confine its hunts to Japanese territorial waters and exclusive economic zone, adding that its controversial annual expeditions to the Southern Ocean – a major source of diplomatic friction between Tokyo and Canberra – would end.

He said Japan would officially inform the IWC of its decision by the end of the year, which will mean the withdrawal comes into effect by 30 June.

Its decision prompted criticism from conservationists and other nations including New Zealand, the UK and Australia.

What’s going on with humanity?

Considering the proven intelligence levels of cetaceans, this announcement is pretty close to a statement of intent to murder sentient beings. VERY disturbing!!

Lawyers for former Trump advisor Michael Flynn accepted a federal judge’s suggestion to delay sentencing after the judge appeared likely to disregard Mueller’s recommendation of no jail time. Flynn reportedly told the court this morning that he was indeed told that lying to the FBI is a crime.

From the New York Times.

At Mr. Flynn’s sentencing hearing in Federal District Court in Washington, Judge Emmet G. Sullivan called Mr. Flynn’s crimes “a very serious offense” and said he was not hiding his “disgust” at what Mr. Flynn had done.

“All along you were an unregistered agent of a foreign country while serving as the national security adviser,” the judge told Mr. Flynn. “Arguably that undermines everything that this flag over here stands for. Arguably you sold your country out.”

But Judge Sullivan gave Mr. Flynn the option of delaying the sentencing until he had completed his cooperation agreement with federal prosecutors. “I cannot assure that if you proceed today you will not receive a sentence of incarceration,” Judge Sullivan told Mr. Flynn.

Interesting how many Trump people are getting locked up while accusing others of criminal acts… These traitors cannot NOT go to jail. Thank you Judge.

Previously closely guarded documents, including company memos and lab test results, reveal that Johnson & Johnson has known about trace amounts of asbestos in its baby powder products since the 1970s, and worked hard to keep the findings a secret from the public for just as long, according to a new report from Reuters.

In a story published Friday, Reuters reports that 11,700 plaintiffs in various lawsuits have claimed Johnson & Johnson’s talc causes cancer, including ovarian cancer.

Not only did Johnson & Johnson know about the asbestos, Reuters reports, but “company executives, mine managers, scientists, doctors and lawyers fretted over the problem and how to address it while failing to disclose it to regulators or the public.”

Asbestos has been “classified as a known human carcinogen” by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and the International Agency for Research on Cancer, according to the National Cancer Institute.

And according to the National Institute of Health, “investigators have found asbestos-related diseases in individuals with only brief exposures.” Reuters puts it this way: “even small amounts of asbestos are enough to trigger the disease years later. Just how small hasn’t been established.”

Jesus. Fucking. Christ.

I heard about asbestos, for the first time, in 2011 watching a report on the Daily Show (back then hosted by Jon Stewart) about a town here in Quebec named ASBESTOS where until recently was the world’s largest asbestos mine.

In short, Johnson & Johnson sells asbestos powder. And they tell you to put on a baby.

DISTURBING!

The moving story of Argentine actress Thelma Fardin may well be raised as the birth of a national #MeToo movement in Argentina.

Hers may not be the first account of sex abuse in the world of Latin American entertainment, but one that could be the get-go for an expansive wave with a scope that is yet to be measured.

On Tuesday, the Actrices Argentinas group (about 400) held a high-profile press conference at which actress Thelma Fardín detailed allegations of rape and sexual abuse against Juan Darthés (a well-known actor) .

In a video shown at the event, an emotional Fardín detailed the allegations, claiming that he had sexually abused and assaulted her in Nicaragua (while on tour) back in 2009, when she was underage. 

The actress, then 16 years old, said that while they were in the hotel room Darthés, then 45, kissed her on the neck, took her hand towards his penis so that she noticed his erection and immediately said, “Mira cómo me pones” (“See what you’ve done to me”) before raping her.

After the explosive allegations, a new movement denouncing sexual harassment and sexual assault and showing solidarity with victims were all over social networks, using one simple hashtag: #MiraComoNosPonemos.

The phrase can be loosely translated as “Look at what you do to us (we get together,)” and is a reference to a phrase uttered by Darthés during the attack.

I saw the video…. it was hard not to shed tears.

I love Argentina’s rich cultural side when it comes to theatre, cinema, music and arts overall. I admire many immensely talented actors and musicians from that country.

But I don’t love the violent society!

It’s incredible that in a country like Argentina it takes 400 women to denounce a rapist and make the case of the victim “believable”.

But you know what’s more terrible? The amount of people defending a rapist and attacking the victims; and feminist constantly. Specially, other women. 

I said it before and I say it again, the Argentine society is ill of violence.

Last Tuesday, in fact, after watching the video on Youtube, I posted a comment of solidarity and minutes later I got many replies attacking me for nothing related.

They attacked my physical appearance (my Google account picture that shows on Youtube) and I was like WTF?!! It didn’t surprised me, haters gonna hate.

I’m proud of all those brave women and all those fighting for justice.

And to all the evil bastards, I just have this to say…  #MiraComoNosPonemos.

When is this witch hunt going to stop finding all these witches?
