Facing eviction because baby was crying too loudly: Heartless reality for London’s ‘generation rent’

Attila and Ildiko Wurth, of London’s Hammersmith, live in a privately rented top-floor flat in a converted house with their 15-month-old daughter and three-year-old son. The Wurth family were shocked to receive an email from the managing agent of their property, stating that a complaint had been made “that at 5.30am this morning a baby was crying and stamping and then further noise starting again at 6.45am, which woke one of the other tenants in the property.”

“We have subsequently liaised with your landlord and are instructed that we are to agree arrangements with you to vacate the property as soon as possible. Please ensure to keep all movement and noise to a minimum,” the agent added.

The parents say the eviction threat is “horrible discrimination” against families renting with children. They were also told that if the noise continued, they would be “given two weeks’ notice” to vacate as neighbors had complained on “a daily basis.” According to the agent, other tenants had also complained about “banging, stamping, [and] loud footsteps.”

The Wurth family say they are now not sure what to do, with dad Attila insisting the family have been “very careful about noise.” He added: “We don’t even have a stereo or a TV to make noise with – and we have avoided making any noise with household activities.”

The father of two said if landlords are renting to families with small children, it’s not realistic to think that a baby won’t occasionally cry. However, the managing agent, Sheraton Management Ltd, says the Wurths “were in breach of contract as they were causing disturbance to the other occupants of the building … not only relating to noisy children, but also other noise nuisance.”

“Reluctantly, as there was no remission in the problem, it was on this basis that we advised Mrs Wurth that we may be left with no alternative but to serve a notice for possession. We manage numerous properties lived in by families, some with very young children. Our policy is always to avoid the necessity for repossession proceedings.”

The agent told the family that if the noise were to continue that they would be evicted under “section eight” of the Housing Act of 1988, which allows landlords to remove tenants from their property prior to the end of their tenancy. Forced removal from a property can occur if tenants fail to pay rent, breach the tenancy agreement, or display anti-social behavior. This would include if tenants were considered to be a nuisance to their neighbors, however a court has the final say on whether the nuisance claims are reasonable.

About a third of residents in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham are private renters, a reality that reflects the rising number of families living long-term in rental accommodation. According to the English Housing Survey, more and more people are tenanting into their 30s and 40s, whereas in previous years young families may have bought their own home.

The Wurth family fall into the “generation rent” category. Although Attila works as a vet, the couple can’t afford to buy a home in London.

Trial Begins for Lincoln County Deputy Facing 22 Charges, Including Child Sex Abuse


AUGUSTA — Lincoln County Sheriff’s Deputy Kenneth Hatch III was a decorated officer by day but at night was a different person, a man who preyed on girls for his own sexual gratification.

That was the contention of Assistant Attorney General John Risler during his opening statements Monday morning for Hatch’s trial in Kennebec County Superior Court.

Hatch is charged with 22 criminal counts that are alleged to have occurred from September 1999 until January 2014 in Lincoln County.

Hatch has pleaded not guilty to all the charges and is free on bail. He remains on unpaid administrative leave from the sheriff’s office.

Hatch’s defense attorney Richard Elliott said in his opening statements that the case resulted from a false claim by one young girl who bragged that Hatch was the father of her child. The girl made the boast to show that she had someone inside the sheriff’s office, the defense attorney said.

Elliott said a paternity test proved that the girl’s claim was false and Hatch was not the father of the child. The defense attorney further said Hatch could not be the father because he never had sex with the girl.

The defense attorney repeatedly referred to the prosecution by the state as a “machine” and that it generated 22 charges in hopes that it could get even a few convictions. He said the charges by the state allege time frames so vague that it is impossible for his client to provide alibis.

Elliott said his client does not have to testify but that he will and denies all the accusations made by the state.
He said Hatch is a combat veteran who saw service in Kuwait City and is a veteran law enforcement officer.
Hatch was named its Deputy of the Year in 2015. He had previously been a detective sergeant but was demoted prior to these allegations being made publicly.

Netanyahu Facing Indictment?

Netanyahu Facing Indictment?



by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)



An earlier article explained he’s being investigated for alleged bribery, fraud, breach of trust and money laundering – serious accusations.



He could be charged in so-called Cases 1,000 and 2,000 – the first on suspicion of inappropriately or illegally receiving lavish gifts from wealthy supporters, amounting to possible bribery.



The second case involves him getting caught red-handed on tape, negotiating a quid pro quo with Yedioth Ahronoth publisher Arnon Mozes for more favorable broadsheet coverage in return for legislation prohibiting distribution of the free daily Israel Hayom, YA’s main competitor, owned by Netanyahu supporter Sheldon Adelson.



Netanyahu reportedly agreed to a quid pro quo deal, enough under Israeli law to hold him accountable for bribery even if no follow-through occurred.



Last summer, police recommended indicting him. On Sunday, Israeli police said they have enough evidence to indict him for bribery.



According to Israel’s Channel 10 News, he accepted gifts worth hundreds of thousands of shekels from wealthy supporters. A dollar is worth about four shekels.



Prosecutors haven’t decided whether to charge him. He’s been questioned five times in the case, further interrogation coming.



It involves billionaire motion-picture producer Arnaud Milchan. Israeli Ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer was questioned about Netanyahu asking him to expedite his US visa request.



Another issue is whether Netanyahu tried aiding Milchan’s interests in Israeli media, including the sale of Channel 10 to billionaire investor Len Blavatnik – in 2015, named Britain’s richest man with an estimated 17 billion pound net worth.



It’s believed Australian billionaire James Packer gave Netanyahu gifts worth thousands of dollars. He’s yet to be questioned by police.



Netanyahu lawyer/confidents David Shimron and Isaac Molho were questioned four times about alleged misconduct in connection with Israel’s purchase of nuclear submarines from Germany.



Despite years of financial improprieties, Netanyahu remains unaccountable. 



For how much longer remains to be seen. All the prime minister’s billionaires may become chickens coming home to roost.



A Final Comment



Former Netanyahu residence worker Shira Raban filed suit against his wife Sara for abuses on the job, making her fear for her safety – asking $64,000 in damages.



Interviewed on Israeli television,  she said “I do not know what would have happened if I had stayed there another minute.”



“The last time the missus screamed at me she told me, ‘You’re a lump of nothing. You don’t understand anything. You don’t hear.’ ” 



“She screamed it at the top of her lungs. I was very hurt. I did not just leave. I ran away as fast as I could.”



Sara Netanyahu has a potentially more serious issue to deal with. She may be charged with using public funds for personal use. Earlier, Jerusalem’s Labor Court found her guilty of subjecting former employee Guy Eliyahu to humiliating treatment. Judge Dita Pruginin fined her around $30,000 in damages.



Will husband and wife Netanyahu end up behind bars? No Israeli  was ever prosecuted for high crimes against Palestinians, supporting terrorism, or terror-bombing other countries – far more serious than financial improprieties or treating employees abusively.

Criminalizing Comedy? Man Facing Prison Time for Joke Video of Dog Doing Hitler Salute

Although he has apologized for his actions, according to Scotland resident Mark Meechan, he set about to “p—s off” his girlfriend, and says that he’s no racist.

Now Meechan is on trial for hate crime charges—facing a year in prison.

“My girlfriend is always ranting and raving about how cute and adorable her wee dog is,” Meecham said. “And so I thought I would turn him into the least cute thing I could think of, which is a Nazi.”

The video shows the dog appearing to raise its paw in a Nazi salute when Hitler is heard proclaiming “Seig Heil,” as the dog watches footage of a rally during the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin.

Meecham can be heard on the footage asking the dog: “Buddha, do you want to gas the Jews?” and “Who’s a good wee Nazi?”

But, does this activity actually raise to the level of a hate crime?

Scottish prosecutors say it does.

The “M8 Yer Dugs A Nazi” video, posted in April 2016, which has been viewed over 3 million times, shows the dog becoming agitated every time it hears the word “Jews.”

While some people clearly see the video as satire, others believe that it was anti-Semitic.

In an interview with Alex Jones, Meecham said that shortly after posting the video he received a visit from police to his North Lanarkshire, Scotland residence. Officers informed him that the video promoted violence against Jews, and placed him under arrest.

Meecham is now on trial for violating the Communications Act of 2003, which criminalizes the use of public telecommunications to send messages that discriminate against others based on their religious beliefs

Critics of the video claim that it crosses the line from satire, to promoting violence against Jews—with some claiming that any comedy using anything Hilter, or Nazi related, normalizes Nazism.

Scottish prosecutors allege that by posting a video on YouTube that was “anti-Semitic in nature,” the material communicated would cause fear and alarm, and stir up religious based hatred, according to the Telegraph.

He also faces an alternative charge of posting a video on social media and YouTube that was grossly offensive because it was “anti-Semitic and racist in nature,” according to The Washington Post.

The prosecutors say the act was aggravated by religious prejudice, a claim Meechan disputes.

“I feel in the long run I didn’t do anything wrong,” he told Jones of InfoWars. “It was clearly satire. It was clearly a joke. I wasn’t setting out to cause any offense to any people. If anything I was wanting people to laugh and just obviously, it was taken the wrong way.”

Meecham says that if he is found guilty, he faces a year in prison.

Cases like this reveal exactly why the U.S. Constitution’s First Amendment is so crucial.

While some speech may be extreme and repulsive, the prohibition on certain ideas, even the most repugnant, being put into the public marketplace of ideas is a fast track to totalitarian governmental control—essentially legitimizing the “thought police.”

Similar “hate crime” laws are common across much of Europe.

Recently, an 87-year-old woman was arrested and sentenced to 10-months in jail after being convicted of violating German hate speech laws after claiming that Jews were never exterminated in Auschwitz.

Dubbed the neo-Nazi grandma, Ursula Haverbeck—who is well known for her extremist right-wing views—was convicted in a German court of violating hate speech laws.

According to German state-run broadcaster, Deutsche Welle:

A court in Detmold on Friday sentenced Ursula Haverbeck to eight months in jail on charges of sedition. The presiding judge ruled out the possibility of parole and said that Haverbeck had a lack of “any kind of respect” and that she had made more offensive comments in the courtroom.

Haverbeck is expected to appeal against the sentencing. In Germany, anyone who publicly denies, endorses or plays down the extermination of Jews during Adolf Hitler’s regime can be sentenced to a maximum of five years in jail.

Haverbeck was found guilty of writing a letter to Detmold’s mayor, Rainer Heller, saying it was “clearly recognizable” that Auschwitz was nothing more than a labor camp. She wrote her message at the time when the Detmold court was trying Reinhold Hanning, a former guard who served at the Auschwitz concentration camp.

In Germany, Volksverhetzung, or in English “incitement of the masses,“instigation of the people,” is a concept in German criminal law that refers to incitement to hatred against segments of the population and refers to calls for violent or arbitrary measures against them, including assaults against the human dignity of others by insulting, maliciously maligning, or defaming segments of the population, according to WikiPedia.

In the U.S., incitement of violence is criminal, but “assaults against human dignity of others by insulting, malicious maligning, or defaming segments of the population” are considered an exercise of free speech, and are protected under the First Amendment.

Even the most crude or hurtful speech must be protected to safeguard against unwarranted exercise of governmental power in the form of the widespread censoring of thoughts and ideas that the government doesn’t approve of—in the name of “keeping people safe.

Unless inciting violence, the right of the people to share ideas—no matter how repugnant—is not something that governmental authorities should have the ability to censor as it is seemingly the most basic of all natural rights.

“I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.” — Hall in Friends of Voltaire

Second Major American City Facing Destruction Inside of Two Weeks-Coincidence or Conspiracy?

CSS-Offical-New-Logo2

Why are EBS warning spontaneously appearing in Kansas and Oklahoma? Is this a desensitization psyop? Is this a warning from N Korea delivered through hacking? Tell us what you think. Leave your comments below.

This article deals with the likely and potential devastation of Hurricane Irma. However, there are two more hurricanes following Irma, an 8.2  eartquake in Southern Mexico and uncontrollable fires in the American Northwest exponentially increase the odds that these are not unrelated weather and random mother nature events. The pattern represents forethought and purpose. Soon a second major American city will be destroyed and the effects will be felt longer than a decade. Houston was merely the opening act.

Weaponized Weather Leads to Manufactured Weather Events

Weaponized Weather is one of the last tools that the elite have left that is devastatingly functional and that the majority of the public does not have the “expertise” to judge the validity of weather wars.

To anyone is well-versed by now that HAARP facilities can and subsequently do generate millions of watts of ELF waves that can excite and subsequently move the jet stream, which in effect would alter the weather for the worse.

I previous wrote an article where I partially detailed the patents behind weather and earthquake technology. The interesting fact is that the Air Force is in total control of the technology. When one combines thee revelation that the technology exists to produce earthquakes and hurricanes, combined with the irregular and devastating weather patterns, it is impossible to conclude that these events are not being artificially manuractured for some political motive.

Miami Is the Next Houston

Image result for new madrid fault line

If the storm stays on track, Miami is going to be utterly devastated. Because Miami sits in such a low-lying posture, the damage will far exceed what we have seen in Houston.

Meteorologists from the website  Weather Underground issued a series of warning along the Atlantic coast.

“The Atlantic (Florida Straits) side of the Florida Keys also has deep water offshore, limiting the maximum storm surge in a Cat 4 to 8 – 10 feet. The risk is higher on the west (Florida Bay) side of the Keys, where the water is shallower; a worst-case storm tide of 12 – 15 feet can occur there. Any storm tide over six feet is extremely dangerous in the Florida Keys, due to the low elevation of the land. The greatest risk in the Keys, if the current NHC forecast verifies, would be on the Florida Bay (west) side of the Upper Keys, after the center of Irma moves just to the north. The counter-clockwise flow of air around the hurricane will then bring winds out of the southwest that will drive a large storm surge into the west side of the Upper Keys.”

It is hard to fathom the tremendous loss of life for those in the Miami area who did not heed the Governor’s advice and evacuate when the warning was first issued. The sheer gridlock of the refugees will make it impossible to flee.

Millions Are At Risk Along the Atlantic Coast

The damage is not confined to just Florida. This same group of weathermen issued the first warning that Hurricane Irma could devastate towns along the coast of Georgia and South Carolina where the storm surge could be a catastrophic 20-28 feet high in certain areas.

Maximum of the “Maximum Envelope of Waters” (MOM) storm tide image for a composite maximum surge for a large suite of possible mid-strength Category 3 hurricanes (sustained winds of 120 mph) hitting at high tide (a tide level of 3.5’) along the coast of Georgia. What’s plotted here is the storm tide–the height above ground of the storm surge, plus an additional rise in case the storm hits at high tide. Empty brownish grid cells with no coloration show where no inundation is computed to occur. Inundation of 19 – 23’ will occur in a worst-case scenario along most of the coast.

 

Charleston, SC  could see the surge exceeding 20 feet and flood areas many miles inland from the shore. In effect, nobody, except those on high ground are safe with several miles of the coast.

“Maximum of the “Maximum Envelope of Waters” (MOM) water depth image for a composite maximum surge for a large suite of possible mid-strength Category 3 hurricanes (sustained winds of 120 mph) hitting at high tide (a tide level of 2.5’) along the coast of South Carolina near Charleston. If Irma is a Cat 3 in South Carolina, a worst-case 17 – 21’ storm tide can occur.”

“If Irma makes a trek up the East Coast from Miami to southern South Carolina as a Category 3 or 4 hurricane, as the models currently suggest, the portions of the coast that the eyewall touches will potentially see a massive and catastrophic storm surge, breaking all-time storm surge records and causing many billions of dollars in damage. Even areas up to a hundred miles to the north of where the center makes landfall could potentially see record storm surges. The area of most concern is the northern coast of Florida, the coast of Georgia, and the southern coast of South Carolina, due to the concave shape of the coast, which will act to funnel and concentrate the storm surge to ridiculous heights. If we look at wunderground’s storm surge maps for the U.S. East Coast, we see that in a worst-case Category 3 hurricane hitting at high tide, the storm tide (the combined effect of the storm surge and the tide) ranges from 17 – 20’ above ground along the northern coast of Florida, and 18 – 23 feet above ground along the Georgia coast. If Irma is a Cat 4, these numbers increase to 22 – 28 feet for the coast of Georgia. This is a Katrina-level storm surge, the kind that causes incredible destruction and mass casualties among those foolish enough to refuse to evacuate.”

To put Irma into an historical perspective, Hurricane Katrina set the all-time record for the largest storm surge ever recorded along an American coast at 27.8 feet.

In the post-Florida attack,  Savannah, Georgia could very easily see a surge of up to 23 feet if Irma strikes as a Category 3 storm. On a more ominous note, if the storm surge reaches a Cat-4, the damage and destruction will be beyond our ability to estimate.

“Maximum of the “Maximum Envelope of Waters” (MOM) storm tide image for a composite maximum surge for a large suite of possible mid-strength Category 3 hurricanes (sustained winds of 120 mph) hitting at high tide (a tide level of 3.5’) along the coast of Georgia. What’s plotted here is the storm tide–the height above ground of the storm surge, plus an additional rise in case the storm hits at high tide. Empty brownish grid cells with no coloration show where no inundation is computed to occur. Inundation of 19 – 23’ will occur in a worst-case scenario along most of the coast.”

If this was an invading army, we would have already raised the white flag of surrender. The United States is being torn apart brick by brick and this is not even the worst part of the threat.

The Killshot

South Florida plays host to two nuclear power plants. Are They safe of will we experience two Fukushimas on American soil? The fact that two nuclear power plants lie directly in the path of Hurricane Irma is huge news. However, the mainstreatm media (MSM) is strangely quiet on this point.

It is nearly impossible to conceive of the fact that within a very short time, Florida could play host to not just one Fukushima, but to two of these catastrophic events at the same time.

Conclusion

Let’s not pull any punches here. The effects of Irma, and we have not even begun to calculate the effects of the two hurricanes tracking behind Irma, is potentially far worse than what just happened in Houston.

Short of an all-out nuclear war, the only thing worse than this particular event would be the failure of the Oroville Dam. Is that next?

Man Facing Potential Assault Charges for Fighting Off Two Home Invaders

home invasionhome invasion

A 26-year-old victim of a home invasion is now facing the prospect of an assault charge after he successfully defended his home against two burglars who had broken in.

After arresting the two robbers, police then set their sites on the home owner because he hit one of them in the head with a shovel.

According to the police, they were called by the home owner around 5:20 am Sunday morning when he heard a noise in his garage and went to check it out. After hanging up with 9-1-1, the man picked up a shovel to defend himself against the home invaders.

When he confronted the burglars, he hit one of them in the head with the shovel and they both ran off.

Both of the suspected 19-year-old burglars were later arrested. According to police, after they received the 9-1-1 call for the home invasion and were interviewing the burglary victim, the suspected burglar then called to report his injury.

As Global News reports, upon arrival they found two men, both 19 years old, who fit the description of the suspects wanted in connection with the home invasion.

The teen with head injuries was rushed in serious condition to hospital, where he was placed under arrest.

The other teen was arrested on site.

After arresting both of the teens, police launched a second investigation into the home owner. For fending off the two burglars, the 26-year-old could be charged with assault with a weapon.

Police spokesperson Caroline Chevrefils told CJAD News that “You cannot assault somebody if they are not hitting you.”

The very idea of charging someone for defending himself against two people who broke into his home is utterly asinine. According to the police logic, this man would’ve had to allow the burglars to attack him first, before defending himself. Ominously enough, that is the law in Canada.

While it is certainly not okay to initiate force against others who are not threatening you, the very act of entering a home without the permission of the owner is a de facto threat and appropriate force is justified.

The man didn’t kill the teens, he merely swung a shovel at them to get them out of his home. Under Canadian law, the government grants property owners, what they refer to as “reasonable” right to self-defense.

While this incident takes place in Canada, the idea of police going after the victim of a burglary for fending off criminals is chilling.

In Canada, using deadly force to defend yourself can and does often result in the person being arrested and charged with a crime.

Just last month, a man in Halifax, Nova Scotia, was issued numerous charges—including attempted murder—after wrestling a gun away from a home invasion suspect and shooting him with it.

As is the case most of the time, Crown prosecutors don’t like Canadians doing what is required to stay alive, so victims who successfully fend off their attackers all too often find themselves on trial facing serious charges.

Is it not reasonable to assume two men who broke into your garage are a threat, and therefore resort to force?

In Canada, however, the government wants to be the only ones who can use force. As TFTP has previously reported,  Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) killed a man outside of a restaurant in 2015 who was wearing a Guy Fawkes mask.

Why weren’t these officers charged?
