An unexpected scene outside #Vancouver Provincial Court today ahead of Ibrahim Ali's court appearance. Counter protests have drowned out a vigil planned by the #Syrian community. Many here are blaming @JustinTrudeau's acceptance of refugees for Marrisa Shen's murder. @GlobalBC
“Where’s Trudeau?” is now being chanted outside the #Vancouver Provincial Courthouse. Dozens of demonstrators tell us they’re here in support of Marrisa Shen’s Family. Demonstrators we’ve spoken to say Ibrahim Ali, who came to #Canada as a #Syrian refugee, wasn’t properly vetted.
Members of the #Syrian community living in #Vancouver have now set up a candlelight vigil outside the courthouse where Ibrahim Ali, accused in the murder of Marrisa Shen, is scheduled to appear today. Here’s what they had to tell us. @GlobalBC
One of the bigger revelations of this report is the correlation between Chinese economic and political activity and cyberespionage, a clear trend laid out throughout the report using correlative analysis.
Basically, Chinese cyber activity directly correlated with BRI talks.
I had a tweet bomb that hinted at this correlation last night but was mainly concerned with the dangers of the BRI/SoP activity in general.
I was scanning through historic remarks to quote for a thing, when I found this line from President Grant: "I see no subject more national in its character than provision for the safety and welfare of the thousands who leave foreign lands to become citizens of this Republic."
That's from a letter #Grant sent to #Congress in 1872 on #ImmigrationReform (without using the precise term). No surprise he's today's hottest candidate for most under-rated President, right? He's, like, totes progressive.
WHO IS LISA BARSOOMIAN? And WHY should we care?
Lets learn a little about Mrs. Lisa H. Barsoomian’s background.
Lisa H. Barsoomian a #US Attorney that graduated from Georgetown Law,
she’s a protege of #JamesComey and #RobertMuller.
2. Barsoomian, with her boss R. Craig Lawrence, represented Bill Clinton in 1998
Lawrence also represented:
Robert Muller three times
James Comey five times
Barack Obama 45 times
Kathleen Sebelius 56 times
Bill Clinton 40 times and
Hillary Clinton 17 times
3. Between 1998 and 2017 Barsoomian herself represented the FBI at least five times
You may be saying to yourself, okay who cares, who cares about the
work history of this Barsoomian woman?
Apparently someone does BECAUSE :
Someone out there cares so much
1-The evening of the 22nd of June, Miss #SarahSanders (#WH press secretary) went for dinner with her family to this little place called ‘The Red Hen’. It seems that she was unceremoniously kicked out &harassed some more all the way across the street to the next restaurant
2-It seems somehow this incident has created some sort of mob-mentality wanting to harass Miss Sanders that has gotten to a point in which she now needs protection.
3-What kind of person chases somebody down the street based solely on political opinions?
If u ever worked in a restaurant, u learn quickly that u have to deal with a lot of assholes &people you don’t like. You smile, curse them inwardly &hope you’ll never have to see them again
Hi everyone thank you for all your support and empathy in the past few days.
To minimize further injuries, the original voicemail with the intended subject's name has been removed, but I am reposting here with name obscured: soundcloud.com/user-251012259… (thanks for tech help!)
I am also reposting my entire Twitter message regarding this incident, with other important ideas I forgot to include:
four days ago my work phone got a rambling but confrontational 3.5 min voicemail from someone questioning my legitimacy to teach based on my presumed #citizenship and #ethnic identity. You can hear the actual message here: soundcloud.com/user-251012259…
I was denied service at 2 diff. Chinese restaurants in LDN. EP1, my cousin asks the lady why she was asking us 2 leave and “this is not a fast food restaurant” she answers. He calmly tells her that she cant do that. I told my cousin 2 let it go & we walked out #rascismisalive
EP2 My @malaikaaminata friend & I walk in2 another Chinese restaurant. We sit at an empty table. A lady comes over asking us 2 move upstairs. Prepared by my previous incident I say no right away. She starts shouting at us 2 move bcos the table is for 4. #rasicismisalive@kuvie_
2 avoid an incident, I look right over at the next table & notice 2 ladies sitting at another table for 4. I ask them if it’s ok for us to share the table. They agree and make room for us. We sit down and this is what ensues @wanlov@panjianoff@niikotei@tafari#rasicismisalive
