Day 182






La fin de notre nation!!!

by André Lefebvre

Je répète ici ce que j’ai déjà écrit et qui résume exactement ma pensée sur l’histoire de notre nation.

C’est autour de 1815 que l’histoire de notre nation “canayenne” commence réellement à être effacée de l’histoire officielle.

C’est là le début de la fin de l’époque « héroïque » de notre histoire. Rapidement, l’industrie du bois surpassera celle de la traite des fourrures. La « civilisation » prendra le contrôle de l’esprit d’aventure, du caractère enjoué et du courage extraordinaire des jeunes Canayens. Ceux-ci se manifesteront, dorénavant, sur la drave des billots flottants sur les rivières vers les moulins à scie. Les Anglais les appelleront les « Roughmen » et non les « Raftmen »; parce que les billots n’étaient pas attachés en « radeaux » sur ces rivières. Les « raftmen » étaient plutôt sur le fleuve.

Suite à ce développement économique, le domaine de la construction devient graduellement, lui aussi, une industrie. Plusieurs « habitants » deviendront « travailleurs spécialisés » de la construction dans la région de Montréal, tout en gardant un « pied à terre » dans la région de leur origine. D’autres encore, décideront de déménager aux USA où l’industrialisation est encore plus effervescente.

Ces derniers expriment physiquement le fait que le « Canayen » n’est pas limité au territoire du Québec. Pour eux, la « main mise » sur le continent nord-américain est un droit acquis par les « Canayens » et il est inaltérable. Il n’est donc pas question, à leurs yeux, de « s’expatrier »; ils « déménagent ». Ce « droit acquis » continental sera effacé de l’histoire par les USA tout autant que par le Canada et ensuite par le Québec lui-même. Le « Canayen » deviendra rapidement, presque en une seule génération, un « sans patrie ». Par contre, partout en Amérique du Nord jusqu’à nos jours, le « Canayen » sera toujours considéré comme le meilleur travailleur que puisse engager un patron d’entreprise.

Ces «Canayens sans patrie » devront, dorénavant, se soumettre et accepter d’être isolés les uns des autres, la plupart dans la « réserve » du Québec. Les autorités de la Province parviendront rapidement à leur faire croire que le Québec est leur seul vrai territoire, qu’ils sont des « Français abandonnés » plutôt que des « Canayens par choix », et que le peu de courage de leurs ancêtres, plus ou moins mollusques et illettrés, leur ont acquis seulement le droit d’être un peuple de seconde classe dans un pays anglo-saxon où ils feront, dorénavant, figure de « porteurs d’eau ».

Le clergé canadien développe, chez nous, cet esprit de dévalorisation nationale face aux autorités. Il enseigne à nos parents que plus ils souffrent, plus ils seront « récompensés » de « l’autre bord », au Paradis. Il leur apprend à « tendre l’autre joue » lâchement au lieu de le faire honorablement; à être soumis par crainte au lieu d’avec héroïsme. Le clergé, depuis longtemps, est devenu très « efficace » à ce petit jeu. Pour s’en rendre compte, il suffit de lire l’histoire des Gaulois, elle aussi effacée de l’histoire de France, intitulée « Les mystères du peuple » d’Eugène Sue. Vous comprendrez également pourquoi cette oeuvre fut, rapidement, mise à l’index et que plusieurs exemplaires furent brûlés un peu partout en Europe, lors de sa parution.

L’histoire des Gaulois ressemble beaucoup à celle des « Canayens ». Sauf que les Anglais étaient plus « inquiets », face aux Canayens, que les Francs, face aux Gaulois qui ne parlaient pas tous la même langue. Quant au clergé, il n’était devenu qu’un peu plus « diplomate » qu’à l’époque des Mérovingiens. L’histoire de France est très belle; mais il faut admettre que la fierté et l’honneur du Gaulois Vercingétorix lors de sa reddition à César, est mille fois plus remarquable que le barbarisme lâche et hypocrite du Franc Clovis dans le récit du vase de Soisson.

L’histoire nord-américaine officielle actuelle n’est qu’un lâche assassinat sournois et hypocrite de l’âme de la nation la plus héroïque de l’Amérique du Nord: la nation « Canayenne ». Il reste cependant évident que dans chacun de ces Québécois, il y a toujours un « Canayen » qui dort. La question est : Est-il encore possible de le réveiller pour qu’il reprenne conscience de son identité?

Parce que, actuellement, tous les Québécois la recherchent, cette identité assassinée. Sans elle, le cœur même de leur nation héroïque est inanimé. La situation est la même pour l’identité annihilée de sa nation sœur, la nation amérindienne. Sans l’éveil de la première, ni l’une, ni l’autre n’ont la moindre chance; mais personne encore n’en perçoit l’imminence.

L’essentiel du problème actuel n’est pas une question de « langue », mais bien une question « d’âme ». Car une langue sans âme n’a absolument rien à dire d’important; tandis que l’âme survivante d’une nation garde automatiquement sa langue.

L’honneur et l’héroïsme d’une nation n’est pas de frapper comme un Viking « berserk » sautant du bateau dans un tas d’ennemis; c’est plutôt de relever la tête et de négocier d’égal à égal avec l’autre parti sans accepter la dévalorisation. Il sera toujours temps de devenir « berserk ».

Par contre, pour ne pas accepter la « dévalorisation », il faut, au départ, reconnaître QUI nous sommes vraiment.

Terror attacks on 3 continents; ISIS claims responsibility in Tunisia, Kuwait

by Greg Botelho

CNN
June 27, 2015


(CNN) - ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack on a seaside resort hotel in Tunisia on Friday that killed at least 38 people and wounded at least 36 others, many of them Western tourists.

The Islamist group named the attacker as Abu Yahya al-Qirawani and said he managed to infiltrate the Hotel Riu Imperial Marhaba in the coastal city of Sousse.

ISIS posted a photo of the alleged attacker, but people who were at the scene of the shooting told CNN they could not definitively say whether the gunman they saw is the same one featured in the ISIS photo.

Some witnesses reported seeing more than one gunman, and the Tunisian Interior Ministry initially said there had been three, but a ministry spokesman later said they are aware of only one and that he was killed.

The spokesman, Mohammed Ali Aroui, said the gunman was a student who was going to receive his master's degree in engineering in the nearby town of Kairouan. Tunisian authorities did not name him.





Two U.S. officials said they believe the Tunisia attack may have been inspired by ISIS, though not directed by the terrorist group.


The 'swoosh of bullets' on the beach

Tunisian Prime Minister Habib Essid said 38 people were killed, many of them as they enjoyed their holiday on the beach.

Among the dead were at least five Britons, three Belgians, one German, and one woman from Ireland, according to the foreign ministries of Britain, Ireland and Tunisia.

An unknown number of French nationals were also among the dead, Essid said Saturday, according to CNN affiliate BFMTV.

A British man wounded in the arm described running into the sea to escape.

"I heard someone firing a gun and then I looked at my wife, and she got up and ran," the man, whose name wasn't given, told Tunisia's Watania 1 TV.

"As I turned, the bullet just hit me in my arm. ... My wife ran to the hotel and I just saw the gunman firing shots randomly at people laying on the sunbeds on the beach."

Another British tourist staying next door to the Imperial Marhaba said he had just left its lobby and was walking along the beach with his wife when the firing started.

Ian Symes said that at first it sounded like fireworks, but "then you could hear the swoosh of the bullets as they were going on the beach, and that's when panic set in and everybody rushed up to the hotels."

He said he also heard a couple of explosions amid the gunshots, which he believes might have been grenades.

A woman from Wales told CNN's Robyn Kriel that she saw bloodied bodies lying in the sand and people from neighboring hotels jumping over fences to get to her hotel, about a mile away from the main attack scene.

The woman said she heard at least 30 seconds of sustained gunfire.

Symes said staff from the hotel ran onto the beach while the firing was still going on so they could help the victims.

"They were very brave," he said. "They were going toward (the victims), certainly while the guns were still firing. Very commendable."

On its website, Hotel Riu Imperial Marhaba is described as an all-inclusive hotel with views of Port El Kantaoui on the Mediterranean Sea. It contains indoor and outdoor pools, including one for children, as well as buffet-style and theme restaurants.


Attacks also in France, Kuwait

Tunisia's nightmare came on the same day as at least two fatal terrorist attacks in other countries.

A man caused an explosion at a chemical plant near Lyon in southeastern France after having beheaded his boss and leaving the head hanging on a fence, French officials said. Authorities detained the suspect.

And ISIS has claimed responsibility for an apparent bomb blast at the Shiite-affiliated Al-Sadiq mosque in Kuwait's capital during Friday prayers, leaving at least 25 dead and more than 200 injured.

Spain raised its terror alert -- to 4 on a 1-to-5 scale, with the higher numbers indicating a bigger threat -- in light of the three attacks, Spanish Interior Minister Jorge Ferandez said. Other leaders, like British Prime Minister David Cameron, reacted as well.

"I am sickened by the attacks in Tunisia, France and Kuwait," Cameron tweeted. "Our countries stand together in combating the horrors of terrorism."





Sajjan Gohel, the international security director for the Asia-Pacific Foundation think tank, said the confluence of events add up to "an unprecedented day for terrorism." He noted that, while questions remain about who was responsible and the extent to which the attacks were coordinated, in each case you have individuals "buying into the ... doctrine that groups like ISIS articulate."

While what happened Friday is rare, Gohel told CNN that people worldwide should brace themselves for more such violence.





"Terrorism is something that, unfortunately, we're going to have to accept as part of our daily lives," said Gohel, who is also an Islamist ideology expert at the London School of Economics. "Terrorism is now diffuse: It's not autonomous, it's not necessarily being coordinated by one particular group, (and) it can often be very spontaneous.

"... Gone are the days of the al Qaeda large-scale plots where the cell was big, the authorities could disrupt it, arrest (people) and prosecute. Now are are seeing an increase in the volume of terrorism because the plots sometimes actually are on a smaller scale (which makes them) harder to protect, harder to monitor."


ISIS had vowed museum attack 'just the start'

Tunisia is the birthplace of the Arab Spring and perhaps its lone success story. But the North African nation is not without its issues, including an uneven economy marred by high unemployment and the distinction of having more citizens -- up to 3,000 -- thought to have gone to Iraq and Syria to fight as jihadists, according to the London-based International Centre for the Study of Radicalization.

Terrorists within Tunisia have been targeted before, as part of apparent attempts to hurt Tunisia's economy by scaring off some of the millions who come each year to the country for its culture and Mediterranean Sea beaches.

The prime example, until Friday, had been the killing of 23 people -- most of whom vacationing aboard two cruise ships -- last March at the landmark Bardo Museum in Tunis.





At the time, that attack was the deadliest on tourists in the Arab world since the 1997 massacre in Luxor, Egypt.

In a subsequent audio statement, ISIS identified two men -- Abu Zakariya al-Tunisi and Abu Anas al-Tunisi -- who it said used "automatic weapons and hand grenades" to kill and injure what it called "crusaders and apostates."

That message also warned that the Bardo Museum attack was "just the start."





Friday's hotel attack will do nothing to calm fears about more violence, especially for tourists.

Belgian carrier JetAir not only canceled all its flights to Tunisia in the wake of this new violence, but had one flight turn around mid-flight and return to Brussels. And TUI tour operators Jetair, Sunjets.be and VIP Selection have canceled all departures to Tunisia until further notice.

And Tunisians themselves looked inward once again, forced to face the scourge of terrorism and figure out what to do next.

"Tunisia has undergone a remarkable democratic transition and is the success story of the Arab Spring. But our country is still fragile," said the Ennahda Party, a moderate Islamic group that's part of Tunisia's coalition government.

"There is a tiny but poisonous fringe of society across our region which has wrongly interpreted the Islamic faith and wishes to destroy Tunisia's progress, at any cost. ... Today's attack will not weaken the commitment of Tunisians and people around the world to the values of democracy, equality and the fundamental importance of human life."

CNN's Sara Mazloumsaki, Salma Abdelaziz, Yousuf Basil and journalist Yasmin Ryan contributed to this report.

ISIS Video Shows Terrorists Delighting in Finding Sick New Ways to Kill

by Heather Clark

As originally posted on: Christian News Network
June 24, 2015


A new video released by the barbaric Islamic group ISIS, which identifies itself as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, shows the terrorists taking delight in inventing new depraved ways to kill those that they capture.

The footage appears to be a continuation of a video released last week entitled “The Deterring of Spies I,” which showed members of ISIS affixing a prisoner to a pole with his arms outstretched like Christ. The man’s right hand and left foot are then cut off with a hunting knife as he screams out in pain.

A quote from the Koran was posted during the four-minute video: “The penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger … is none but that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides or that they be exiled from the land.”

In a new video released by ISIS on Tuesday, members of the group reach new and shocking lows in killing those proclaimed to be spies. Footage shows sixteen men in orange jumpsuits being split into three groups. One group of four men are placed inside of a car in the middle of the desert and then a rocket-propelled grenade is hurled at the vehicle, which consequently explodes. A jihadist can be seen recording with a video camera as the execution unfolds.





The second group of men, five in total, are locked inside of a cage and then lowered into what appears to be a murky swimming pool. According to reports, ISIS utilized an underwater camera to capture footage of the men drowning inside of the cage.





The third group of men, seven in total, are made to kneel on the ground in a row as they are tied together around their necks with explosives. The explosives are then detonated.

ISIS drew shock and outrage earlier this year when it released a video and photographs of a captured Palestinian pilot being locked in a cage, as a torch lights a trail of flammable powder leading up to the captive. The screaming pilot falls to his knees and is consumed by the flames until he is no more. An ISIS member driving a tractor then dumps rocks and sand onto the cage to extinguish the fire.

The publication Al Arabiya commented on Wednesday that it believes the “[v]ideos of the killings are a key propaganda tool of the militants, used to shock and terrify their enemies as well as to draw in new recruits seeking the most brutal and active militant group.”

Bill Windsor is facing 7 years in the Montana State Prison because corrupt judges and law enforcement people are out to get him

As originally posted on: LawlessAmerica.com

Bill Windsor is facing 7 years in the Montana State Prison because corrupt judges and law enforcement people are out to get him.

William M. Windsor has never committed a crime in his life.

It's disappointing that very few people know or care...

Just about everyone is aware that we have a pandemic of government corruption, judicial corruption, and law enforecement corruption in America. But very few people know about what is happening to Bill Windsor.

Bill Windsor set out to film a movie exposing government, judicial, and law enforcement corruption.  He traveled to every state (except Alaska), and he filmed over 750 stories of corruption and has thousands more who wanted to be filmed.  Evil people, some working for various government entities and committing crimes, set out to destroy Bill Windsor and the movie, Lawless America.  Bill Windsor has been defamed online in the largest case of defamation in U.S. history.  His life has been threatened many times.  A UNIVERSITY OF MONTANA EMPLOYEE, Sean Boushie, attempted to murder Bill Windsor.   Sean Boushie then falsely claimed that Bill stalked him, threatened him with a gun, and a host of other lies.  Corrupt courts gave Sean Boushie a Temporary Order of Protection.  It expired on September 16, 2013, but corrupt Montana and Texas folks pretended it still existed, and a bench warrant was issued for unsuspecting Bill.

Bill Windsor was put into the Ellis County Texas Jail illegally for 53 days as a political prisoner -- held for extradition.  William M. Windsor was then unlawfully held in the Ada County Idaho Jail for 35 days and then illegally handed over to two Missoula County Montana Sheriff's Deputies on March 25, 2015.  He was held there for 46 days (a grand total of 134 days behind bars). He escaped (on bond) at 11:30 am on May 9, 2015.

The State of Montana has filed five criminal charges against William M. Windsor for sending a Tweet, publishing the UNIVERSITY OF MONTANA EMPLOYEE's name (the would-be killer Sean Boushie) four times, sending a legal notice email to a University of Montana attorney, and filming the movie and the pilot for a TV show that will expose Montana as the most corrupt state in the country.  Bill Windsor's bail was as high as $4.1 MILLION DOLLARS.

“Law enforcement” had LawlessAmerica.com removed from the Internet.  This website contains over 1,400 articles exposing corruption.  Bill Windsor worked with a friendly offshore hosting company to return the website to the Internet outside the clutches of American evildoers.  He wasn't so lucky when Facebook removed the movie page falsely claiming it promoted nudity, pornography, and solicitation of sex ... or when AT&T canceled the email that he used on everything related to the movie for years falsely claiming he violated their Terms of Service.

The list of wrongdoing and crimes committed against Bill Windsor in the process is LONG, and it involves a significant number of people.  Bill says he is going to sit down when time permits and list each of the things that have been done to him.  For starters, he never committed  a crime.  Publishing a person's name is not a crime; sending an email is not a crime; sending a Tweet is not a crime; producing a movie is not a crime.  And, it is impossible to commit a crime in Montana by allegedly doing these things in Dallas Texas.  But when tens of millions of dollars are at stake, corrupt government officials can accomplish just about anything.





How sick in the head do you have to be to participate in geting an innocent whistleblower incarcerated for 134 days without bond as part of a plan to send him to the Montana State Prison for seven years and perhaps the Texas State Prison as well?  Mighty damn sick.

If you aren't aware that Bill Windsor will be standing trial on September 28, 2015 on five criminal charges and is facing seven years in the Montana State Prison, well you know it now.

When people ask what brought Bill Windsor to Montana, he tells them.  There is one common reaction: mouths fall open in disbelief.  Sadly,  it is absolutely true.

Lawless America....That's where we live.

Revealed: What Really Goes On Behind Scenes of Bilderberg?

by "Ennie Lyte"

June 13, 2015


TELFS- Austria – A Bilderberg insider has finally revealed what goes on in the mysterious Bilderberg meetings that are the stuff of conspiracy theorists everywhere.

“I have at great pain of death decided to reveal to you the goings on deep within the bowels of the Bilderberg meetings attended by high ranking members of the order every year.

“First, I must caution you the reader, to read this with an open mind, to not judge us too harshly, or to start spreading this piece around the internet like wildfire, because it is not in the general public’s interest that this knowledge is disseminated.

“To say that I am in great danger if anyone ever finds out who I am is an understatement, however, I choose to do this in the interests of the greater good.






“Okay, let me get started. The Bilderberg is always chaired by Henry. Once we are all assembled in the various hotels we occupy over the meetings over the years, he appears. He likes to wear a smoking jacket and puff on cigarettes while delighting everyone with stories of the Nixon days.

“The basic premise of the meetings is that we all have saunas, massages and enjoyable luncheons together. We are pampered, everything is on call.






“Business does resume after a day or so of frolicking. Here is the clincher, what you have been waiting to hear about what really goes on in the Bilderberg meetings; where those few chosen denizens of the highest order convene. We basically talk, that’s it, there is a conference room set up, and we talk about projected world affairs and what not.

“So there you have it mes amis, just a lot of talking, maybe a slide show here or there, drinks are on hand, then it’s back to the sauna. That’s it.”

Sadly, Charleston Wasn't the First: A Brief History of Gun Violence in Houses of Worship

by Diana Pearl

On Wednesday night, nine people died after a man opened fire during a Bible study class at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church of Charleston, South Carolina. The alleged gunman, now identified as 21-year-old Dylann Roof, has been taken into custody.

But what's just as hard to hear: This devastating incident is the sixth shooting at a United States church in nearly a decade. Add synagogues, temples and mosques to the tally, and it's almost too many to count.

As the country mourns those who died in Charleston, we reflect on the other devastating incidents that took innocent lives.


First Congregational Church in Neosho, Missouri
Aug. 12, 2007


Gunman Eiken Elam Saimon killed three, including an assistant pastor, and wounded five at the Missouri church. In the pews that morning were a number of Saimon's relatives – some of whom were among the victims. After pleading not guilty to three charges of murder, he was later convicted and sentenced to life in prison with no possibility of parole.


Valley Unitarian Universalist Church in Knoxville, Tennessee
July 27, 2007


During a morning performance of a children's play, Jim D. Adkisson opened fire. Despite their place on the stage, no children were killed or injured. Two adults, however, died, and seven others were wounded.






New Life Church in Colorado Springs, Colorado
Dec. 9, 2008


Gunman Matthew Murray set off two smoke bombs at the church's front entrances, and arrived equipped with clips for 1,000 rounds of ammunition, plus two handguns and an assault rifle. He killed two teen sisters and wounded three more individuals.


First Baptist Church in Maryville, Illinois
March 9, 2009


During Sunday services at this downstate church, Terry J. Sedlacek opened fire, killing Rev. Fred Winters in the middle of his sermon. Two others were injured after Sedlacek stabbed them when they tried to diffuse the situation. After four shots, Sedlacek's gun jammed – but he had 30 rounds of ammunition total on him.






Adat Yeshurun Valley Sephardic Orthodox Synagogue in North Hollywood, California
Oct. 29, 2009


In the parking garage of the synagogue, a gunman shot two men in their legs (they survived). Six months later, a suspect was arrested.


New Gethsemane Church of God in Richmond, California
Feb. 14, 2010


Here, two gunmen fired five shots into a crowd more than 100 people during a Sunday service, wounding two teens. A year later, a man named Marcel Buggs was sentenced to 40 years in prison for the crime.


Sikh Temple of Wisconsin in Oak Creek, Wisconsin
Aug. 5, 2012


Just 16 days after the Aurora, Colorado, movie theater shooting, another devastating incident occurred at a Milwaukee-area Sikh temple, resulting in six fatalities and three injuries at the hands of Wade Michael Page, an army veteran. Responding to the attack, police shot Page to death.


Muslim Education Center Mosque in Morton Grove, Illinois
Aug. 10, 2012


Suspect David Conrad fired multiple shots at the exterior wall of a suburban Chicago mosque, where inside, 500 worshippers were observing Ramadan. Conrad was arrested two days later.


Jewish Community Center in Overland Park, Kansas
April 14, 2014


Frazier Glenn Miller (also known as Glenn Miller or Glenn Cross), a former Ku Klux Klan leader, shot and killed three people outside a Jewish Community Center near Kansas City. Charged with counts of capital murder and first-degree murder, Miller could face the death penalty if found guilty when he stands trial.


West End Synagogue in Nashville, Tennessee
April 13, 2015


Earlier this year, shots were fired at Nashville's largest conservative synagogue. Ironically, the attack came just before a memorial walk for victims of the Overland Park shooting the year prior. Thankfully, no one was injured and there were no fatalities.


Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina
June 17, 2015


In the latest instance of gun violence at a church, nine were killed when a man opened fire during a bible study at the historic house of worship. The prime suspect, Dylann Roof, has been taken into custody.

ISIS 'causing drought' by cutting water supplies in four Iraqi provinces

As originally posted on: Middle East Monitor
June 19, 2015


The Committee on Agriculture and Water at the Iraqi Parliament announced on Thursday that four provinces in the centre and south of the country face a drought because ISIS has cut the water supply from the River Euphrates. The provinces affected are Babel, Karbala, Najaf and Qadisiyah.

In a statement issued on Thursday, the head of the committee, Furat Al-Tamimi, said that ISIS closed the Ramadi Barrage (a dam on the Euphrates) after it had taken control of most of the Anbar area. He added that the group is working on taking control of Lake Tharthar in the same province to complete the "water war" strategy that it is engaged in. There is simply insufficient water in storage to prevent a drought crisis.

Al-Tamimi explained that he is trying to diminish the effects of the shortage of water from the Euphrates through the tributaries of the River Tigris. The problem, though, is ongoing and the four provinces are still at risk of drought. He described the situation as "critical" and requiring a "quick move" to prevent it spilling over into other provinces.

According to Al-Tamimi, since ISIS closed the dams the Euphrates is down to about 50 per cent of its normal volume of 200 cubic metres per second. It is expected to fall even further.





ISIS diverted the Euphrates away from its normal course by drifting the Ramadi Barrage towards the middle of Lake Habbaniyah in the Anbar desert. The water level has dropped to its lowest in years.

The militant group has already used the "water weapon" in Iraq, shutting down several dams in Diyali province, in the east of the country, over the past year. This action has led to a drought in some agricultural districts, while other areas have been inundated with water.

Violence New Generation Jalisco Cartel (CJNG) has gone so far as to kill their enemies by dynamiting some alive.

Heriberto Acevedo Cardenas, "El Gringo", who headed the armed wing of CJNG, introduced this method to purge their opponents, a method not seen before in the narco war.

On March 23, "El Gringo" and three of his followers were killed in a clash with the Fuerza Única de Jalisco (FUJ) in Zacoalco de Torres, which triggered the violence of the criminal organization in the state.

Authorities confiscated the cell phones of the 4 sicarios which contained numerous photos and videos that recorded the torture and killing of their rivals, including the detonation of dynamite attached to their bodies while they were still alive.




In one of them there is an adult subject, with a a boy of about 10 who cries terrified, with a stick of dynamite attached to the chest with tape.

A few steps away from a fence, two men kick shot a man on the ground, hands tied, who screams in pain, just before the dynamite that has adhered to the chest is detonated.

How Did They Go From Till Death Do Us Part to Parting for Fear of Death?

by "Nveious Hart"

As originally posted on: Fifty Shades of Real
April 3, 2015


Her training group had been on the floor for a couple of months now. It was a quiet night on the floor. She was talking to two of her (male) co-workers. The subject of her having kids had come up as it usually does. She doesn't remember much she remember mentioning about how she usually was a pretty calm person who could take a lot, but once you threatened her kids, watch out. She doesn't what day this conversation had taken place, she did know though that it would serve quite chilling.

Either the next Wednesday or the Wednesday after she had received some bad news regarding her father's health. Well the very next morning, it was a Thursday morning. Her kids had slept in for once, and she was worried. Their boys were sleeping. It was around seven...or was it eight? She had been awake for a while. He had been asleep. She was worried, and hated talking about this stuff in front of her children. Due to their conflicting schedules, this was a rare opportunity for them, and she wanted to seize it. She wanted him to wake up with her and talk. He was asleep. He didn't want to wake up. She tried gently at first, then got more playful. She needed his support, and the kids would be awake soon. She doesn't remember how she finally woke him, but she knows he woke angry. He stormed from their room to the living room not to comfort her, but to yell at her. To demean her. To tear her down. He dad was dead. How dare she wake him up with that reminder? She didn't feel like being yelled at so she walked away. He followed her. They were in her room now, he was blocking the door and she was sitting on the bed. She wanted him to stop arguing and be supportive. He wanted to remind her about his father's death and how hard he had been working. She got up, started to leave and he slapped her across the face. She then tried to push passed him. He pushed her onto the bed. Just as she was getting up from that, he punched her square in the jaw. The world


went black. She woke up crumpled in a ball on the floor. He tried to comfort her, she pushed him away, and for once he let her. He said he was sorry. So very sorry. Nothing she hadn't heard before and she was brazen enough to remind him. They were both in tears. He sat down next to her. She moved away, he once again let her. She adjusted her jaw back into place, which almost hurt more than the original injury. He looked her square in the eye and said the most chilling sentence she had heard up until that moment. "We should get a divorce because I'm not sure if next time I could stop from killing you"

They talked about how that was the hardest she had ever been hit. About how he was getting worse instead of better. Her kids at this point had been wandered downstairs to bug a family member. Her jaw was aching, but she had to do something to reconnect with him. She had to prove to herself he still loved her and those words weren't true. Next thing she knew, she was having sex on the side of the bathtub with a still aching tub before being rushed off to work.

She gets to work, and her jaw is still aching, luckily her favourite supervisor always carries pain meds. She just had to explain to him why she needed them. No biggie. Yeah, right. She was in too much pain to come up with some sort of witty or clever reason. She just flat out said someone hit her.

Her husband picked her up that night, and he was furious she had let slip that he had hit her. He lectured her the whole way home about the consequences that would happen should he follow her work place policy and report the violence. Not once did he stop to ask how her jaw was. The rest of the weekend he was the coldest he had ever been to her in their relationship. Barely even spoke two words to her that weren't necessary. She had jeopardized his career, and possibly still wasn't sure he could hold off from killing her.

The next time she saw her supervisor again was Monday. She pulled him off the floor and started to try to laugh off her earlier comments but wound up spilling her beans about her abuse.That night her husband picked her up which was the norm as he didn't trust the characters that were frequent near where she worked.

She wasn't sure if were the hard calls, the weekend long of reports he was neglecting his kids again, or the weekend long freeze out, but something sparked an argument. He once again accused her of trying to ruin their lives. She accused him of not caring about her and her kids. That is what led her to ask him what he did while she was at work. That is what triggered him to respond "Try not to ******* kill them". She spent the rest of the ride home trying to figure out how serious he was. He spent the rest of the ride standing by what he said.

As they were walking up toward the house, she grabbed him and said if what he had said in the van was true, she no longer wanted him unsupervised alone with the kids. That's what urged him to pack a bag and leave. She hid in the bathroom while he was packing, too scared to get in his way. Once he left, she ran downstairs and double checked the doors. Not sure what she was hoping to accomplish since he had keys to both doors. She ran upstairs and was shaking. She was terrified. Her husband had threatened their kids. He had never done that before. She messaged her friend. It didn't take him too long to convince her to call the local law enforcement.




She is embarrassed to state it took the agent she spoke to there almost a half hour to convince her to allow cars to come down to her home. Next thing she knew, she was pacing around the main floor, waiting. Her parents who had gone out had come home. She was wondering if she should call him. Just as she was starting to fold one car pulled up. Followed by another two. That's right 6 local police MEN were storming her dining room, ready to take a report. She barely got started answering their questions when one, bald policeman started demanding she called him home.

She tried but he wasn't stupid and he resisted. He hung up on her Bald demanded she called back. She did, he answered, Bald took the phone and told him how much more trouble he would be in if they had to track him down. He hung up the phone, and they decided to proceed with talking to her, while waiting for him to come home. He drove up, and two of them left to speak with him outside. That left four men to talk to one shaken up housewife. They tried to persuade her to let them press charges on her behalf. She refused. She begged them to let her speak to him. To sort things out. They refused. Truth be told this wasn't the first time she had called the police on him. They knew things had to change. They knew she was crumbling. They took the choice and her husband away. They requested a statement. She refused. They told her he was to be charged with or without her statement. She understood. She was scared and the proof of that started to roll down her cheeks. Bald guy was getting agitated, almost like he took offence to her emotions.

Now because she had worked until 23:00 (11:00 pm) that night, it was well into the wee hours of the morning by the time this was all sorted out. If she remembers correctly, it was two in the morning by the time she remembered how to call her minister. Her minister arrived around three, and stayed about an hour with her, trying to make sense of it all. Eventually she was too exhausted to keep talking, and she knew the kids would be getting up soon. She thanked the minister for coming out. She headed up to her bed. It was way too big so began the tradition of her sleeping on her couch. She passed out just before five in morning waiting for the response from her one friend. Kids woke her up around seven, oblivious to the change in her family. She spent the morning trying to make sense of it, and calling various services as instructed. She didn't know exactly what had happened except that for now at least the abuse would be done with.

A YOUNG schoolboy was involved in a violent gang rape with six older men which was all filmed on a mobile phone, a court has heard.

An investigation was sparked and police launched a major operation after a 20-year-old woman told police she was raped in a house in Southampton,UK, in January.

Earlier in the night it’s alleged the woman had been visiting friends before walking through a subway on her way home. That’s where she met one of the defendants, Mihaita Palie.

The Mirror reports that she went back to the house, where the other six were waiting, and was subjected to a horrifying four-hour ordeal, which was filmed on mobile phone.





“In this room were these defendants and they subsequently subjected her to rape and other sexual abuse as described in the indictment,” Simon Foster, prosecuting, said.

The court was told that the woman managed to make her way to a phone box after the attack and was able to call police.

“She telephoned the police. They came and found her. She told them about the address in which she had spent a few hours,” Foster added.

“The defendants were arrested and she later gave a three hour account in interview.”

Octavian Militaru, 37, Mihaita Palie, 33, and Cosmin Nicut, 20, Radu-Florin Panciuc, 20, Nicolae Ghinea, 21, and Ion Matei, 41, and the 13 year old boy are facing a 4 week trial.

They have denied all the charges.
