Confrontation over BBQ restaurant in Toronto, Canada

 Does this look like overkill to you?


Can you be trespassed from your own premises?

AFTERMATH: Adamson 

Barbecue owner ARRESTED


Rebel News,

26 November,2020


On today's edition of the Rebel News DAILY Livestream, things got a little hectic as Adam Skelly, owner of Adamsons Barbecue in Etobicoke, vowed once again to open his restaurant at 11 a.m. this morning, continuing to break lockdown restrictions placed on restaurants.

Early in the morning, police showed up and placed locks on the doors of the restaurant. A warning was issued that if Skelly allowed diners indoors, he would be committing obstruction.

A defiant Skelly yet again opened up his business, and this time a heavy police presence showed up — including officers mounted on horseback — arresting Skelly for defying the lockdown restrictions.

The Etobicoke barbecue restaurant owner who has openly defied COVID-19 restrictions has been taken into custody and charged with 13 offences, Toronto police say.

Adam Skelly is facing both criminal and non-criminal charges, including trespassing, intent to obstruct police, violating indoor dining rules, holding an illegal gathering and operating a business without a licence. Officers handcuffed him outside Adamson Barbecue and put him into a police cruiser around noon Thursday.

A crowd gathered Thursday outside the restaurant in support of him, with supporters swarming officers and shouting at them to let him go.


Election 2020: Pending recounts and legal challenges

 


The Arizona State Legislature is scheduled to hold an election integrity hearing on Nov. 30 that will include President Donald Trump’s lawyers Jenna Ellis and Rudy Giuliani.

Giuliani, Ellis, and others held a hearing in front of Pennsylvania State Republican senators on Wednesday, where they argued that the state legislature should take steps to reclaim the ability to appoint electors to the Electoral College. Witnesses who claimed they saw allegedly illegal or irregular vote-tabulation efforts in the Keystone State also offered statements.

According to GOP members of the Arizona State Legislature, the hearing is designed “to gather the evidence that justifies calling a special session to contemplate what happened and take immediate action accordingly.”

“We are pleased that the State Legislatures in Pennsylvania, Arizona, and Michigan will be convening hearings to examine the November 3rd presidential election,” Ellis said in a statement provided by the GOP lawmakers.

Pennsylvania Appeals Court 

Tosses Trump Lawsuit, Setting 

Stage For Supreme Court 

Showdown


A federal appeals court has tossed an attempt by the Trump campaign to revive a lawsuit seeking to undo Pennsylvania's certification of Joe Biden's irregularity-plagued victory in the state.

The Friday decision potentially sets the stage for a US Supreme Court showdown, in which the 6-3 (arguably) conservative majority could overturn the results of the election.

That said, according to Bloomberg - citing 'experts' - it's unlikely that the high court will take up a case if the evidence is lacking, and which won't affect the outcome of the election - given that Biden would still win the White House without Pennsylvania's 20 electoral votes.

"Voters, not lawyers, choose the president," reads the opinion from the appeals court, adding "Ballots, not briefs, decide elections. The ballots here are governed by Pennsylvania election law. No federal law requires poll watchers or specifies where they must live or how close they may stand when votes are counted. Nor does federal law govern whether to count ballots with minor state-law defects or let voters cure those defects."

The Trump campaign sought to have a federal court invalidate Pennsylvania's certification, and then get the state's General Assembly to select Trump electors to the Electoral College - which campaign attorney Marc Scaringi wrrote to the US Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit (via CNBC).

"The Pennsylvania General Assembly has the power to appoint the Commonwealth’s presidential electors," wrote Scaringi, adding "A decision by the District Court that President Trump won the legal votes may have significant impact on the General Assembly."

The campaign has alleged widespread voting fraud.

Iran Blames Israel, US For Assassination Of Top Nuclear Scientist

 Prominent Iranian scientist who allegedly ran state nuclear program ASSASSINATED in Tehran

RT,
27 November, 2020

Leading Iranian nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh-Mahavadi was fatally injured in an ambush on his car outside the capital Tehran on Friday, before dying from his injuries in hospital, Iran’s Defense Ministry has confirmed.

“Unfortunately, the medical team did not succeed in reviving him, and a few minutes ago, this manager and scientist achieved the high status of martyrdom after years of effort and struggle,” the statement said.

Fakhrizadeh was attacked during an armed clash between his bodyguards and unknown assailants in Absard city, Tehran province, Mehr News reported. The attack involved at least one explosion and a shootout, it added.

The scientist was rushed to hospital by helicopter after the attack, but died from his injuries.

The Atomic Energy Organization of Iran first denied the claims, with spokesman Behrouz Kamalvandi saying that all nuclear scientists were “safe.”

Fakhrizadeh and his bodyguard were reportedly targeted by a “suicide” attacker at the entrance of Absard town.

The scientist was struck by gunfire after his car was stopped by an explosion at Mostafa Khomeini Boulevard, according to IFP news agency. Several other people were also reportedly killed in the incident, it added, but that has not been officially confirmed.

Images released to the press showed the exploded wreckage of one vehicle and a second bullet-marked car, in which the scientist was traveling.

“This Friday afternoon, armed terrorist elements attacked a car carrying Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, head of the Ministry of Defense’s Research and Innovation Organization,” the Iranian military said.

Fakhrizadeh, a professor of physics at the Imam Hussein University, was also alleged to be the head of Iran’s nuclear weapons program. 

Iran’s Revolutionary Guards has not commented on the attack specifically, but vowed in a statement on Friday to avenge the deaths of nuclear scientists.

No one has claimed responsibility for the assassination. However, in a tweet, Foreign Minister Javad Zarif said “terrorists murdered an eminent Iranian scientist today,” and accused Israel of playing some part in the killing.

In 2018, Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu claimed the Iranian scientist was head of his state’s alleged nuclear weapons development project, the ‘Amad’ (‘Hope’) program. 

Tehran has repeatedly insisted its nuclear program only has peaceful goals. The International Atomic Energy Agency, whose inspectors monitor Iranian nuclear sites, also said that the ‘Amad’ program ended in the early 2000s. 

Netanyahu’s office has not commented on the attack on the Iranian scientist, at the time of writing.


Supreme Leader of Iran Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has dismissed the “path of negotiations” with Western states to lift sanctions. However, the government in Tehran says foreign companies are already preparing to return to the country.

Speaking at the Supreme Council of Economic Coordination’s meeting in Tehran on Tuesday, Khamenei said that the only way to counteract sanctions is to “nullify and overcome” them.

“We tested that way of lifting the sanctions through negotiations one time, but it was fruitless,” the supreme leader stressed.

Western states “interfere in regional affairs, they tell us not to intervene,” he said.

And while Britain and France have nuclear missiles, they tell us not to have missiles. What does it have to do with you? You should first correct yourselves.

Sanctions were “a crime committed by the US and its European partners,” Khamenei said, adding that this “has intensified over the past three years.”

Khamenei urged the nation to continue its resistance against sanctions, explaining that Iran’s economic problem is not about what approach to take but is “diligence, courage and serious effort.”

Iran Blames Israel, US For 

Assassination Of Top Nuclear 

Scientist


Zero Hedge,

27 November, 2020


Update 2: Iran accused Israel and the U.S. of organizing the assassination of one of its top nuclear scientists on Friday and vowed revenge, sharply escalating tensions in the Persian Gulf in the final weeks of Donald Trump’s presidency. Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was the head of research and innovation at Iran’s Ministry of Defense, and was also viewed internationall as the head of Iran's nuclear weapons program. He was killed close to the Damavand campus of Islamic Azad University, about 60 kilometers east of central Tehran, Iran's Tasnim news reported.

"Terrorists murdered an eminent Iranian scientist today. This cowardice—with serious indications of Israeli role—shows desperate warmongering of perpetrators," Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said in a tweet. Iran’s army also accused the U.S. of bearing responsibility. Curiously, Trump retweeted a New York Times report on Fakhrizadeh’s killing without commenting.

Zarif urged the international community to condemn the attack, while the head of Iran’s armed forces, Major General Mohammad Bagheri, called for the assassination to be avenged. Four other Iranian nuclear scientists have been killed since 2010, with Tehran blaming the intelligence agencies of its arch foes, Israel and the U.S.

Fakhrizadeh's assassination comes after Trump reportedly considered bombing Iran and days after US Sec Pompeo had a secret meeting in Saudi Arabia with MBS, Netanyahu, the Mossad Chief, Israeli NatSec Advisor & the Israeli Military Secretary.

As noted below, Israel’s prime minister had singled out Fakhrizadeh in an April 2018 presentation he gave on Iran’s nuclear program, claiming that the scientist was the director of a secret project to develop nuclear weapons. The United Nations nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency, has said “Project Amad” was mothballed in 2003, and Iran dismissed Netanyahu’s presentations at the time as “lies and war-mongering.”

The assassination, which comes at a time when Joe Biden has expressed an interest in resetting relations with Iran and has said the U.S. could re-enter the nuclear agreement if Iran returns to compliance, is likely to trigger the sort of popular anger that followed the January assassination of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani in a U.S. drone strike ordered by Trump. Iran fired missiles at bases housing American troops in Iraq in response to that attack, causing no fatalities but raising fears of a slide to war between the two adversaries.

According to Bloomberg, the office of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declined to comment, as did officials at the Pentagon. The Central Intelligence Agency didn’t immediately respond to questions about whether the U.S. had knowledge of plans to carry out an assassination.

Update 1: while there was some initial confusion if Fakhrizadeh had been killed on location, or merely wounded, with Reuters reporting that "Fakhrizadeh was injured in an assassination attempt near Tehran on Friday and was being treated in a hospital" moments ago Iran's state media has confirmed that - one way or another - he is now dead:

  • IRANIAN NUCLEAR SCIENTIST FAKHRIZADEH DIES IN HOSPITAL AFTER ATTACK - STATE MEDIA

"Unfortunately, the medical team did not succeed in reviving (Fakhrizadeh), and a few minutes ago, this manager and scientist achieved the high status of martyrdom after years of effort and struggle," Iran’s armed forces said in a statement carried by state media.

Iran's foreign minister Zarif promptly blamed said that "Israel is likely behind the assassination attempt":

  • IRAN'S FOREIGN MINISTER ZARIF SAYS THERE ARE SERIOUS INDICATIONS OF ISRAELI ROLE IN KILLING OF IRANIAN NUCLEAR SCIENTIST

And in keeping with the sudden escalation in what until recently was a relatively dormant conflict, Iran's military has vowed to avenge the killing:

  • IRAN ARMED FORCES CHIEF VOWS REVENGE FOR SCIENTIST'S KILLING

Amid speculation that Israel is on war footing over a possible strike in Iran in the coming weeks, moments ago Iranian state media reported that the country's top nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was assassinated in Damavand, east of Tehran. He was reportedly accompanied by his bodyguard when they were attacked by a “suicide” attacker at the entrance of Absard town.

According to Iran Front Page News, Fakhrizadeh was killed by shooting, but before the shootout, his car has been stopped with an explosion at Mostafa Khomeini Blvd. Several others are also reportedly killed in the incident, but haven’t been identified yet.

Fakhrizadeh was a brigadier general in the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corp (IRGC) and headed Iran’s nuclear weapons project.

He was a professor of physics at the Imam Hussein University in Tehran and was former head of Iran's Physics Research Center.

Mohsen Fakhrizadeh

While there has been no official confirmation of the death yet, and Iran Atomic Energy organization has denied the reports, saying that no incident involving nuclear scientists took place according to ISNA News Agency, Iran's revolutionary guards commander wrote on Twitter that Iran will avenge the killing of scientists as it has in the past according to the Jerusalem Post.

No one has yet claimed responsibility for the assassination, but the Israeli regime has a history of hiring hit men to assassinate nuclear scientists in Iran.

In 2018, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said "remember that name" after he announced that the Mossad had obtained 100,000 files from Iran's secret nuclear archives. The files retrieved by Mossad focused on the secret Iranian nuclear program that was developed from 1999 to 2003 called Project Amad, which was led by Fakhrizadeh. When Iran entered the 2015 nuclear deal, it denied that such a program existed.


After the April 2018 killing of several nuclear scientists in Iran, a "protective shield of secrecy and security" had been thrown around Fakhrizadeh, in an effort to protect him against Israeli assassins.

In 2003, Iran was forced to shelve Project Amad, but not its nuclear ambitions. It reportedly split its program into an overt program and a covert one that continued the nuclear work under the title of scientific knowhow development, Netanyahu said at the time. It continued this work in a series of organizations, which in 2018 were led by SPND, an organization inside Iran’s Defense Ministry led by the same person who led Project Amad – Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, Netanyahu said.

According to the WSJ, Fakhrizadeh is often described as Iran’s Robert Oppenheimer, the developer of the world’s first atomic bombs, and not because of the Iranian’s latent pacifist convictions. His name came to light about a decade ago as the elusive head of Iran’s Organization of Defensive Innovation and Research, widely believed to be the group conducting Iran’s nuclear-weaponization work. In 2012 the Journal’s Jay Solomon reported that, after lying low for a few years, Fakhrizadeh had “opened a research facility in Tehran’s northern suburbs involved in studies relevant to developing nuclear weapons.”

Three US officials have said that Israel was behind the assassination of Iranian scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh in a terrorist attack near the capital Tehran, according to a report.

“One American official — along with two other intelligence officials — said that Israel was behind the attack on the scientist,” The New York Times reported on Friday.  

“It was unclear how much the United States may have known about the operation in advance, but the two nations are the closest of allies and have long shared intelligence regarding Iran,” it added.

Fakhrizadeh,59, had been targeted on Friday in a multi-pronged attack involving at least one explosion and small fire by a number of assailants in Absard city of Damavand County, Tehran Province.

The attack targeted the vehicle carrying Fakhrizadeh, who headed the Iranian Defense Ministry’s Organization of Defensive Innovation and Research (SPND), the Fars news agency said.

Iranian Foreign Ministry Mohammad Javad Zarif roundly condemned the terror attack, saying there were “serious indications” of the Israeli regime’s role in the assassination of Fakhrizadeh, a professor of physics at Imam Hussein University of Tehran.

“Terrorists murdered an eminent Iranian scientist today. This cowardice—with serious indications of Israeli role—shows desperate warmongering of perpetrators,” he said in a tweet.

The top Iranian diplomat called on the international community, especially the European Union, to “end their shameful double standards & condemn this act of state terror.”

Fakhrizadeh’s name was mentioned multiple times in a presentation in 2018 by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, during which he repeated baseless claims about the Iranian nuclear program.

UN Hires 100,000 Info Volunteers" to Correct "Wrongthink"

 U.N. Seeks ‘New Social Norms,’ Declares Itself a ‘Trusted’ Coronavirus News Source


Breitbart,

27 November, 2020


The United Nations has joined the World Economic Forum (WEF) to announce a global coronavirus news service, declaring the time has come for “new social norms” that seek out and correct “wrong” information.

Observing that social media is a mechanism for driving opinion on a host of issues, the two globalist organizations announced Thursday they want to “combat dangerous misinformation.”

“When COVID-19 emerged, it was clear from the outset this was not just a public health emergency, but a communications crisis as well,” Melissa Fleming, chief of global communications for the United Nations, said.

“We’re trying to create this new social norm called ‘pause – take care before you share’,” Fleming continued. “We’re equipping people, through this new social norm, with a bit of ‘information scepticism’.”

The U.N. is also encouraging social media influencers to help spread what it selects as “real news about the pandemic,” recruiting them in their tens of thousands to spread the digital messages the U.N. itself has deemed necessary.

“So far, we’ve recruited 110,000 information volunteers, and we equip these information volunteers with the kind of knowledge about how misinformation spreads and ask them to serve as kind of ‘digital first-responders’ in those spaces where misinformation travels,” Fleming said.

U.N. chief Antonio Guterres is pleased to enter the global information age and seek out “wrong think.”

Put your trust in the U.N. alone and all will be well, is his simple alternative message.

As Breitbart News reported, in March the Chinese Communist Party declared the coronavirus did not start in the city of Wuhan, claiming support from both the U.N. and World Health Organization (W.H.O.) in rejecting “hurtful” U.S. allegations to the contrary as “bald-faced racism and xenophobia.”

This was supported directly by the United Nations which had earlier worked to deflect any criticism of the Chinese Communist Party and China.

“Preliminary investigations conducted by the Chinese authorities have found no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission of the novel [coronavirus] identified in [Wuhan],” the WHO wrote on Twitter.

The W.H.O. was later forced to backtrack on its stand and concede the coronavirus is indeed capable of human-to-human transmission and presented a huge risk to global health.

Now it hopes the rest of the world will fall into line and observe its dictats as driven by selected social media warriors.
