Zero Hedge – U.S. Journalist Investigating “Migrant Crime” In Sweden Has To Leave Under “Police Escort” For His Own Safety
After Trump called attention to the rising tide of migrant crime in Sweden last week, independent journalist Tim Pool decided to head to Stockholm for a first-hand look at the “crime-ridden migrant suburb” of Rinkeby.  Unfortunately, upon arrival Pool didn’t get to do much investigating before arousing the suspicion of a couple of masked men who proceeded to follow him through the streets eventually leading to his prompt police escort out of the city out of fear for his crew’s safety.

If You See THIS Label On the Fruit Do Not Buy It at Any Cost!
Most of us don’t know that the stickers attached to the fruits and vegetables are there for more than just scanning the price.
The PLU code, or the price lookup number on the sticker can help you determine if  the product is genetically modified, organic or produced with chemical fertilizers, fungicides or herbicides.
1. A four-digit code beginning with a 3 or a 4 means the produce is probably conventionally grown. The last digits of the code represent the kind of the fruit or vegetable you are buying. For example, bananas are always labeled with the code of 4011.
2. If there are five numbers, and the first is “8″, then the product is genetically modified. The label on genetically modified banana (GE-genetically engineered of GMO) would contain the numbers 84011.
3. A five-digit number that starts with a 9 means the item is organic. Organic bananas are labeled with 94011.
EWG ( The Environmental Working Group) analyzed pesticide residue testing data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Food and Drug Administration to come up with rankings for these popular fresh produce items.

Two women in Germany last weekend became the victim of brutal sexual assaults in two separate incidents. In both cases, the attackers were described as ‘southern types’, operating in small bands.
Carnival rape, crying woman in Leverkusen
On Sunday night, a 31-year-old woman in the city of Leverkusen was victimised by a gang of three men in the district of Lützenkirchen. She was attacked by all three of the perpetrators and subsequently raped on a lawn by one of them. After the assault, the men fled in an unknown direction, Freie Zeiten reports.
Passers-by had, later on, found the crying woman sitting in the streets. She was dressed up as a hippie since she had been out celebrating Carnival.
According to the victim, the men were dressed in dark clothes, in between 20 and 30 years of age, and all had a ‘southern appearance’. This usually means they come from countries such as Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco and Egypt.
The police are asking the public for help, and an arrest has yet to be made in this case.
Violent gang rape on Hamburg riverbank
In Hamburg, two men on Sunday evening sexually assaulted a 46-year-old woman after beating her. The violent gang rape took place near a bridge called the Lombardsbrücke, which is located on the riverbank of the Alster.
On  Monday morning, the injured victim went to a hospital where she was investigated and treated, and other local media report. Afterwards, she spoke to police to file a complaint.
In this case, as well, the woman referred to the rapists as being of southern descent, meaning Northern Africans or, in German police lingo, the so-called ‘Nafri’s’. She could not describe the assailants more accurate.
During the interrogation, the victim mentioned an elderly couple passing by the location of the attack. They may be important witnesses, police have stated.

Pentagon too broke to buy a new fax machine

Pentagon too broke to buy a new fax machine

The United States went ahead with major spending cuts earlier this year, slicing around $85 billion off the federal budget. But while most government offices remain afloat, a fax machine on the fritz may be too costly for the Pentagon to fix.

  Investigative journalists working for the website have identified one side-effect  of the sequester that is only now starting to cause concerns. A  facsimile machine at Defense Department headquarters has  reportedly been out of commission for almost three weeks now and  is hindering the ability for reporters to file Freedom of  Information Act requests with the military.

Starting two weeks ago, requests faxed to the Office of the  Secretary of Defense (OSD) started coming back as undeliverable.  After several subsequent attempts and troubleshooting on our end,  MuckRock reached out to the OSD. Sure enough, their fax machine  is down,” journalist Shawn Musgrave wrote on the site last  week.

  What’s more, though, is that Musgrave reported that the fax  machine in question — the only one at the Pentagon handling FOIA  requests, according to him — may remain out-of-service for  another month, if not more.

  When Musgrave pressed the Pentagon to deliver an estimated date  when the machine might be back up and running, Defense Department  officials said that, should no replacement be immediately  available, the matter must wait until the start of the new fiscal  year.

We would that it is back up sometime in October, but could  extend into the beginning of November,” Aaron Graves of the  OSD replied to Muckrock.

It bears repeating,” Musgrave after that exchange.   “The office that oversees the most powerful military in  history (not to mention the best-funded) is unable to project  when its single fax machine will once again be operational.”

Meanwhile, the US military is budgeted to spend over one trillion  dollars in FY2012, and its in-progress F-35 fighter jet program —   the most expensive weapons system ever ordered — could come at a  price-tag that exceeds even that when all is said and done.

  Of course, that isn’t to say that a pesky fax problem isn’t the  only item at hand causing concerns in Washington. A study  released last week by Goldman Sachs suggested that as many as  100,000 federal jobs could disappear due to budget cuts during  the next year.

“[M]any federal agencies have employed temporary strategies to  adjust to sequestration this year, such as employee furloughs and  deferral of maintenance and training, with the hope that  sequestration would ultimately be reversed,” the report reads  in part. “If sequestration continues, more permanent  adjustments will become necessary and agencies may be more  willing to undertake them if Congress declines once again to  reverse the cuts.”

  In the meantime, journalists might want to go about sending their  FOIA requests the old fashioned way, or else resort to what  Musgrave called “a clunky online request portal that doesn’t  play nice with other systems.”

And if that doesn’t work, someone might want to tell the Pentagon  that the Best Buy down the road can have a brand-new Panasonic  laser fax/copier in stock within days for only around $150.
