Dead Male Prostitute, Piles of Meth Found in Clinton Mega-Donor’s Home—NO ARRESTS

deaddead

West Hollywood, CA — The family and friends of Gemmel Moore, 26, are fighting an uphill battle to bring the man they say is responsible for his death to justice. Not surprisingly, the fact that Moore, who worked as a male escort, was found dead at the home of 63-year-old Ed Buck—who’s donated hundreds of thousands to Hillary Clinton—has received very little media coverage.

On July 27, Moore’s body was discovered inside the West Hollywood apartment of Ed Buck. Buck is a well connected and extremely wealthy political activist who gives massive amounts of money to the Democratic party. His influence is vast as he’s given hundreds of thousands to a slew of powerful Democrats including Clinton, Barack Obama, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey and a variety of state and local organizations in California—which likely explains the reason he’s yet to be charged with any crime.

According to a Los Angeles County coroner’s report, police and paramedics found Moore naked on a mattress in Buck’s living room with a “male pornography movie playing on the television.” A spokesman for the coroner’s office, Ed Winter, said Buck was inside his Laurel Avenue home at the time of Moore’s death and that drug paraphernalia was recovered from the scene.

Police found sex toys, syringes and “clear plastic bags with suspected methamphetamine in a toolbox roll-cabinet in the living room,” 24 syringes with brown residue, five glass pipes with white residue and burn marks, a plastic straw with possible white residue, clear plastic bags with white powdery residue and a clear plastic bag with a “piece of crystal-like substance.”

Even if we ignore the fact that there was a dead prostitute in his bed, the drugs found on the scene alone should’ve been enough to warrant charges as the multiple plastic bags would land anyone else with not only possession charges but intent to distribute. But there have been none.

According to FOX, the Los Angeles County Coroner’s office initially ruled the death an accidental methamphetamine overdose. But the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office Homicide Bureau on Aug. 14 announced they would investigate if there is any criminal culpability, after Moore’s family and friends disputed the initial finding.

The Sheriff’s office has told the family that they should have the investigation wrapped up soon. However, they say they are having trouble interviewing witnesses.

“We should have all the information, so we can make a good evaluation of everything that transpired to see if there’s any criminal culpability,” Lt. Joe Mendoza, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office homicide bureau, told Fox News.

While it is entirely possible that Moore was simply staying at Buck’s house as a ‘friend’ and accidentally overdosed while there, the following information paints a far more ominous picture.

One of the witnesses interviewed by police said Moore told her that someone whose name is conveniently redacted tied him up “over a year ago” and “held him against his will at the residence in West Hollywood.”

But that’s not all. Moore also kept a journal in which he described in graphic detail how Buck forced him to do meth and got him addicted.

“I honestly don’t know what to do. I’ve become addicted to drugs and the worst one at that,” Moore’s journal reads. “Ed Buck is the one to thank. He gave me my first injection of crystal meth it was very painful, but after all the troubles, I became addicted…”

Moore also seemed to think that Buck was trying to kill him which is why he wrote the following sentence in his journal.

“If it didn’t hurt so bad, I’d kill myself, but I’ll let Ed Buck do it for now.”

The damning information against Buck, however, according to his attorney amounts to nothing.

“There’s nothing there. As we always stated, this was an accidental overdose that Ed Buck had nothing to do with and it’s a tragedy,” Buck’s attorney, Seymour Amster, told Fox News. “The coroner has not changed his opinion from an accidental death. Until that happens, and that’s not going to happen, we’re done.”

However, on top of the fact that there is documented evidence of heavy drug use at his residence, illegal prostitution, witness accounts of kidnapping, and Moore predicting Ed Buck would kill him, other witnesses have come forward noting that Buck has a history of doing this to young black men.

As FOX reports, according to Jasmyne Cannick, an advocate for Moore’s family, a number of other gay black men have claimed Buck would invite them to his house, then pay them several hundred dollars to take drugs.

The website has even posted evidence showing that Buck is apparently still out recruiting young black men to bring them to his home and give them drugs.

The family of Moore has set up a website at which former victims of Buck can submit their stories in hopes of getting justice. Whether or not this well-connected millionaire democratic donor will ever be brought to justice, however, remains up in the air.

As for Moore’s mother, she remains resolute in her mission which she says is “Getting Ed Buck off the streets and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law for preying on and taking advantage of my son and others like him.”

Turkey Arrests Suspect Linked To Russian Ambassador’s Murder & To Hillary Clinton’s $1 Million Contributor Fethullah Gulen

Turkey’s security forces have arrested a man who allegedly played a “key” role in the murder of Russian Ambassador to Turkey Andrey Karlov

ANKARA, January 2018 /TASS/. Turkey’s security forces have arrested a man who allegedly played a “key” role in the murder of Russian Ambassador to Turkey Andrey Karlov, the Daily Sabah newspaper reported on Thursday.

Investigators say the suspect used ByLock, an encrypted messaging app. This app was exclusively used by the terrorist group during the attempted coup d’etat in July 2016, according to the paper.

Russia’s Ambassador to Turkey Andrey Karlov was shot dead in December 2016 while he was delivering a speech at the opening ceremony of a photo exhibition in Ankara. The attacker, police officer Mevlut Mert Altintas, was killed. The Russian Foreign Ministry said Karlov’s murder was a terrorist attack. Russia’s Investigative Committee launched a criminal case into “the act of international terrorism.” Karlov was awarded the honorary title of Hero of Russia posthumously.

In December 2017, the Daily Sabah reported citing the official statement of Turkish prosecutors that the killer had links to Muslim preacher Fethullah Gulen. Gulen had met with the killer and all information had been sent to the killer’s telephone, the prosecutor’s office said.

Ankara holds Gulen, who has resided in the United States starting from 1999, and his organization FETO responsible for masterminding the July 15, 2016 coup attempt.

Over 1,000 cars torched across France as New Year’s Eve arrests rise

Home » Crimes, Eurabia, Europe, Multiculturalism » Over 1,000 cars torched across France as New Year’s Eve arrests rise



 


France saw a jump in arrests on New Year’s Eve as well as an increase in the number of cars torched by African and Arab vandals, a ritual among revellers in the country’s high-rise suburbs.

The number of vehicles set alight on the night of December 31st climbed from 935 a year ago to 1,031, while arrests rose from 456 to 510, the interior ministry said on Monday.

Violence also marred celebrations in the Paris suburb of Champigny-sur-Marne, where two female police officers were attacked by a large group of Africans at a party.

French President Emmanuel Macron took to Twitter to denounce the “cowardly and criminal lynching of police officers doing their duty” and warned that the culprits would be “found and arrested”.

“I regret that incidents like yesterday can happen but overall people were able to enjoy New Year’s eve in a peaceful manner,” Interior Minister Gerard Collomb said Monday.

Some 140,000 security and emergency forces were deployed across France on New Year’s Eve.

From Macron With Love: Iran Arrests Trained Rioters From France

Rothschild’s Macron

Many rioters arrested in the recent unrest in Iran have been trained by the terrorist Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO), the IRGC commander said, adding that enemies have even dispatched a number of Isis terrorists to Iran for acts of sabotage.

In comments on Wednesday, Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari said many rioters arrested after December 29 amid violent unrest in some cities of Iran have been trained by the anti-revolutionary forces and the MKO terrorists.

The timely public move to counter the riots helped security forces capture the ringleaders of sedition quickly, the general added, saying that the IRGC forces took limited action only in three provinces of Isfahan, Lorestan and Hamedan to quell the riots.

Rothschild’s Macron

According to the commander, the US, Zionists and Al Saud have ordered a number of offense teams of the ISIS terrorist group to enter Iran for acts of sabotage and blasts, but stressed that Iran has gotten all of those attack teams under control.

Weaker teams of the terrorist group would not even dare to cross the Iranian border, he added.

Major General Jafari also disclosed a seditious plot by the rioters and their masters for a rise in the death toll from the unrest in Iran and blaming it on the government.

The “casualty-creating” scenario was carried out in the cities of Qahdarijan, Izeh and Najafabad, as even two voluntary forces were martyred by rifle pellets and stabbing, the commander went on to say.

Riots broke out in some Iranian cities last week amid peaceful rallies in protest at price hikes and economic woes.

Security forces have arrested a number of leading rioters and mercenaries affiliated with foreign intelligence services, a chief judiciary official in Tehran said.

On Tuesday, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei highlighted the role of enemies in the recent events in Iran, saying the adversaries have employed various tools at their disposal, including money, weapon, politics and security organizations, to harm the Islamic Republic.

On Wednesday, people held demonstrations in many cities across Iran to condemn the riots and acts of vandalism.

Re: Israel arrests Palestinian teen who forced them off her land

A 16-year-old Palestinian girl was arrested early this morning after a video of her telling Israeli soldiers to leave her property went viral, according to Haaretz.

Female Border Police and Israeli soldiers took 16-year-old Ahed Tamimi from her home in Nabi Saleh, near occupied Ramallah, and was taken to be questioned, the army said in a statement.

The video, filmed amid ongoing protests last Friday, shows Tamimi along with two other women, telling two armed Israeli soldiers to remove themselves from her property. Israeli soldiers had reportedly shot at children throwing stones from a house in the neighbourhood and prevented the family from re-entering their home. Neighbours joined the scene in an attempt to force the soldiers to leave.

After they refuse, Tamimi can be seen attempting to push the soldiers off her land. They later detain her for assaulting military officers, a crime which carries up to seven years imprisonment.

Human rights groups and activists have since launched the #FreeAhed campaign online.

Israeli Education Minister Naftali Bennett told Army Radio this morning that he believed the young girls in the video “should finish their lives in prison”.

Tamimi’s father Bassem took to Facebook to record the incident and told of how his home was raided and their phones, cameras and laptops stolen following his daughter’s arrest.

“The IOF [Israeli occupying forces] raid my home and arrested my daughter Ahed Tamimi after the Israeli media attaks [sic] here after she stop the solder [sic] in front of our house when he shot child on his head,” the status read.

Tamimi has stood up against Israeli aggression multiple times in the past, attending protests and preventing soldiers from arresting a 12-year-old boy in her hometown of Nabi Saleh in 2015.

Israeli occupation forces have arrested 430 Palestinians and wounded more than 3,400 others in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem and the besieged Gaza Strip since US President Donald Trump announced his decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

Yesterday, the Arab Organisation for Human Rights in Britain warned that the Israeli occupation forces are using lethal force to confront the protests, including the use of internationally prohibited lethal weapons and ammunition that have caused serious casualties.

Re: Israel arrests 430 Palestinians, injures 3,400 since US decision on Jerusalem

Israeli occupation forces arrested 430 Palestinians and wounded more than 3,400 others in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem and the besieged Gaza Strip since US President Donald Trump announced his decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, Quds Press reported.

Reporting the Palestinian Red Crescent (PRC), Quds Press said that 2,809 Palestinians were wounded and had received treatment in the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem by Saturday, and a further 622 had been injured in the Gaza Strip.

In a statement, the PRC said that 77 were wounded with live bullets in the occupied West Bank and 187 in the Gaza Strip, while 624 Palestinians were wounded with rubber coated steel bullets in both territories and 2,309 suffered suffocation due to the heavy use of tear gas, most of them in the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem.

Others were beaten by Israeli occupation forces in the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem, and injured as a result of Israeli air strikes on Gaza.

Meanwhile, the Palestinian Prisoners’ Club (PPC) said that the Israeli occupation forces arrested 430 Palestinians in the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem.

In a statement, the PPC said that there are 231 children, nine women and three wounded Palestinians among those who have been arrested.

On 6 December, US President Donald Trump announced his administration’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, triggering protests across the world.

Re: Israel stops Palestinian ambulance arrests teen girls

Israeli occupation forces violently detained two Palestinian girls from inside an ambulance in the Hebron district of the southern occupied West Bank.

A video, circulating on social media, shows a group of armed Israeli soldiers stopping a Palestinian Red Crescent ambulance at gunpoint in the town of Halhul.

The soldiers attempt to pull people out of the ambulance onto the street, and after verbal and physical confrontations, the soldiers jumped into the ambulance and forced two Palestinians out.

A witness told Ma’an that he saw Israeli soldiers forcing two teenage girls out of the ambulance at gunpoint.

He added that Israeli female soldiers handcuffed the girls and detained them.

The identities of the girls remain unknown.

An Israeli police spokesperson was not immediately available for comment.

Watch: Kentucky Cop Assaults, Arrests Innocent Man For Saying Cops Abuse Their Power


In Lebanon Junction, Kentucky, a man in the process of moving to Kansas was arrested after a police officer took offence to his words, even after the officer told the man he was “free to go.”

The incident, involving officer Hedges, occurred after Avery Williams asked for his badge number. The officer did give it over, but things escalated quickly after Williams said the incident was going online to show the world how an officer pushed his weight around without probable cause.

“This is going to go online so people can see truth and consequences, how you guys push your weight around,” Williams says. What followed was Williams being pushed into the concrete, his arms roughly pushed up behind his back, threatening to tase him, and handcuffed without reason. All the while, Williams states he is not resisting arrest and pleads for a reason behind the aggression.

Williams recently uploaded the video online to the Oath Accountability Project (OAP); showing officer Hedge abuse his police powers after being asked for his badge number and supervisor’s name.

The incident began after Williams attempted to redeem his lottery scratchy cash prize at a KY Pilot gas station. Williams stated the trouble began when the gas station attendant became abusive, refusing to grant the prize money and telling him to “f***ing go to the speedway.” Williams did the right thing by walking away from the screaming attendant, tired after being on the road for 12 hours moving to a new house.

According to Williams, he proceeded to the McDonald’s attached to Pilot to get drinks for himself and his female friend. After leaving McDonald’s, the Pilot attendant began “running her mouth” at him. At this time, Williams took his phone out and told her that he was going to report her for misconduct, at which time she replied that she had a police officer inside that would say otherwise.

Saudi King Arrests Billionaire Prince Bin Talal, Dozens of Others in Cabinet Crackdown









 






In a shocking development, late on Saturday the Saudi press reported that prominent billionaire, member of the royal Saudi family, and one of the biggest shareholders of Citi, News Corp. and Twitter – not to mention frequent CNBC guest – Al-Waleed bin Talal, along with ten senior princes, and some 38 ministers, has been arrested for corruption and money laundering charges on orders from the new anti-corruption committee headed by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, while Royal princes’ private planes have been grounded.

Among those fired and/or arrested are the head of National Royal Guards, Miteb Bin Abdullah, the Minister of Economy and Planning, Adel Fakeih, and Admiral Abdullah bin Sultan bin Mohammed Al-Sultan, the Commander of the Saudi Naval Forces.

As the local press further adds, the supreme committee chaired by Crown Prince and billionaire stops “on charges of money laundering.”

al-Waleed bin Talal is perhaps best known not only for his periodic CNBC appearances, but for his recurring on and off spats with president Trump:

According to al Arabiya, among those sacked and/or arrested are Moteib Bin Abdullah, Minister of the National Guard, and Prince Khalid bin Ayyaf has been appointed as his replacement. A second Royal Order was issued to relieve Minister of Economy and Planning, Adel al-Faqieh, from his duties, and the appointment of Mohammed Al Tuwaijri as Minister of Economy and Planning.

According to a Royal Decree issued by King Salman on Saturday the anti-corruption committee is chaired by the Crown Prince with the membership of: Chairman of the Monitoring and Investigation Commission, Chairman of the National Anti-Corruption Authority, Chief of the General Audit Bureau, Attorney General and Head of State Security.

As Saudi analysts were quick to point out, the purge by the Saudi King means that King Abdallah’s last remnants (Riyad firmer gov. & head of Nat. Guard); media moguls; SAGIA & financial policy officials have been purged.

As Bloomberg notes, changing the head of the National Guard, an institution that’s been controlled by the clan of the late King Abdullah, “is not like changing the minister of oil,” said Kamran Bokhari, a senior analyst with Geopolitical Futures and a senior fellow with the Center for Global Policy. “I wouldn’t be surprised if this leads to greater fissures within the royal family.”

Arabiya adds that King Salman also issued sacking and replacement orders for Admiral Abdullah bin Sultan bin Mohammed Al-Sultan, the Commander of the Naval Forces, is to be terminated and be retired; his replacement is Vice Admiral Fahd bin Abdullah Al-Ghifaili, to be promoted to the rank of admiral and be appointed as Commander of the Naval Forces.

Additionally, Minister of Economy and Planning Adel al-Faqieh was replaced by Mohammed al-Tuwaijri, SPA said, quoting a royal decree. Commander of the Saudi Navy, Abdullah al-Sultan, was replaced with Fahad al-Ghafli. The king also replaced Minister of Economy and Planning Adel Fakeih withMohammad Al Tuwaijri, his deputy.

Al Tuwaijri, formerly vice minister for economy and planning, had already played a key role in shaping Saudi economic and fiscal policy over the past year. Before joining the government in May 2016 he was Middle East chief executive for HSBC. He’s served as a frequent spokesman for the government’s economic reform plan on TV and with Western journalists.

King Salman also issued an decree forming an anti-corruption committee headed by the crown prince. Its powers include the ability to trace funds and assets, and prevent their transfer or liquidation on behalf of individuals or entities, along with the right to take any precautionary actions until cases are referred to relevant investigatory or judiciary authorities, according to a government statement.

The committee’s formation was deemed necessary “due to the propensity of some people for abuse, putting their personal interest above public interest, and stealing public funds,” the Royal Order said.

Some more cynical observers noted how MBS is quickly learning from XIi Jinping “how to get rid of enemies under justification of “corruption commission” & place “friendlies” in high places.”

Putting the arrests in context, the heads of the main three Saudi owned TV networks were arrested, Alwalid Bin Talal (Rotana), Walid Al Brahim (MBC), Saleh Kamel (ART)

As Bloomberg adds, Saudi King Salman appointed a former HSBC banker to head the country’s economy ministry and removed one of the royal family’s most prominent princes from as head of the National Guard. Separately, a number of Saudi princes and former ministers were arrested by authorities hours after the announcement of a new anti-corruption committee, with sweeping powers and headed by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the Saudi-owned Al Arabiya news service reported.

Prince Miteb, son of the late King Abdullah, was replaced as minister of the National Guard by Prince Khaled Ayyaf, according to a royal decree carried by state-run media late Saturday. Before his ouster, Prince Miteb was one of the few remaining senior princes to have survived a series of cabinet reshuffles that promoted allies of the crown prince, who is the king’s son and heir to the throne.

King Salman has sidelined other senior members of the royal family to prevent any opposition to the crown prince. Prince Mohammed, 32, replaced his elder cousin, Muhammed bin Nayef, as crown prince in June, a maneuver that removed any doubt of how succession plans will unfold following the reign of King Salman, now 81.

While details remain scarce about this “Saturday of the long Saudi knives” – which some have suggested may be a countercoup attempt – DPA confirms the Al Arabiya report that three senior state officials were sacked.

Salman relieved Prince Moteib bin Abdullah of his post as minister of the National Guard, replacing him with Khaled bin Ayaf, the official Saudi news agency SPA reported. Additionally, Minister of Economy and Planning Adel al-Faqieh was replaced by Mohammed al-Tuwaijri, SPA said, quoting a royal decree. Commander of the Saudi Navy, Abdullah al-Sultan, was replaced with Fahad al-Ghafli.

No official explanation was given for the sackings.

In recent months, the Saudi monarch has carried out a string of reshuffles appointing young people in senior state posts. In June, Salman ousted his nephew as the crown prince and appointed his son Mohammed to become the first in line to succeed him. The monarch on Saturday ordered the creation of an anti-corruption committee led by the crown prince amid a rumoured crackdown on suspected tainted officials and royals. Mohammed, 31, is seen as the driving force behind opening up the ultra-conservative country to the outside world and weaning its economy off oil.

Furthermore, there is speculation that all private flights and VIP departures out of Saudi Arabia have been suspended temporarily, similar to what happened following the last “gentle coup” in June when Prince Mohammed (MBS), 32, replaced his elder cousin, Muhammed bin Nayef, as crown prince in June, a maneuver that removed any doubt of how succession plans will unfold following the reign of King Salman, now 81.

According to the AngryArab blog, the removal of Prince Miteb bin Abdullah as head of the National Guard, means that “this is the first time that the National Guard is not in the hand of Abdullah or his son.”

That put all apparatus of the military-intelligence network in the hands of Muhammad bin Salman. News that Al-Walid bin Talal has been arrested and accused of money laundering. This could be a service to Trump, who hates Al-Walid: the two fought it out on twitter during the campaign although Al-Walid tried to reconcile with Trump after his election but to no avail.

Bin Talal’s arrest and the government reshuffle caps off a bizarre day for Saudi newsflow, which started with the resignation of Palestinian prime minister Saad al-Hariri, who announced he was quitting due to fears of an assassination plot, allegedly organized by Iran, followed shortly after by the Saudi defense forces intercepting a ballistic missile as it was about to strike the capital Riyadh.

To summarise today’s even more bizarre Saudi news day:

Trump urges Aramco IPO
Lebanon PM resigns
Saudis intercept missile
Major cabinet reshuffle; 3 Saudi princes – who run the anti-graft committee – arrested for money-laundering
A total of 11 princes, >30 ministers arrested on corruption
