California: Male prisoners who call themselves women will be sent to women’s prisons

California has become the first state to not only pay for prisoners’ transgender operations and treatments, but also move men and women into prisons of the opposite gender.

Effective October 20, taxpayers are on the hook for prisoners who claim to have gender dysphoria. The change to state law took place after a years-long lawsuit from convicted first-degree murderer Rodney James Quine.

German Parliament approves assisted suicide for ‘altruistic’ reasons

After Germany passed a law Friday which permits assisted suicide for “altruistic” motives but not for “business” ones, at least one German “assisted suicide association” has signaled it will challenge the legislation.

The law allows someone to assist a suicide on an “individual basis out of altruistic motives,” but “criminalizes commercial euthanasia,” with assisting a suicide for “business” reasons an offence punishable by up to three years in prison, according to Reuters and AP reports.

The surprise outcome of the balloting, which was widely denounced as “unfair and marred by fear and violence by international election observers”, has given Erdogan’s Justice and Development Party (AKP) 49 percent of the vote restoring single-party rule in Ankara.

BBC Journalist Comes Clean: “Believe Nothing You Read Or Watch”

‘The way we all consume news is changing,’ he writes. ‘The way we share news has changed and will continue to change at a faster pace. This week TV and newspapers have proven to me why they are not the future of news. If they can’t even get their facts right, be trusted with clear information and then report it accurately is it any wonder that we are all turning to Facebook, Twitter and other internet sources for our news and information? The internet allows us to come to our own conclusions by checking our own facts. We really can’t trust the traditional outlets to do it right or properly. I write this as a father who has lost a daughter. I write this as a journalist who loved his work but can now clearly see why so many have lost faith in his profession and traditional media. They, we and I have brought this on ourselves.’

Mystery light over ocean was missile test

WEB Notes: LAX normal flight path has been shut down for a week. There is an alternate route in place. Now we have this missile test. To me it seems obvious they wanted the attention. The missile was launched from sea over a major population center in California. Why not test launch a sea to land missile on an uninhabited island out in the Pacific? Why over a population center… Unless there is a desire to get people used to this.
