Mum of tragic Mikaeel Kular to appear in court tomorrow accused of beating tot to death over 4 days



Mikaeel was the same age as my Daughter. We know the family.

MIKAEEL Kular’s mum will appear in court tomorrow accused of beating her toddler son to death over a four-day period before dumping his body in a suitcase. This happened last year and is now ready for court. I have it on good authority she has been beaten several times in the Woman’s wing of Edinburgh’s Saughton Prison

The indictment against Rosdeep Kular states she murdered the three-year-old by repeatedly striking him on the head and body and then failing to summon medical help.

She is accused of then wrapping his body in a duvet cover and transporting it in the suitcase from the family home in Edinburgh to Kirkcaldy, Fife, and dumping it in woods.


Mikaeel and his Mother charged with his murder

The 34-year-old, indicted under her married surname of Adekoya, is alleged to have tried to cover up the murder by concocting a story that the youngster had wandered off from home in the middle of the night, sparking a major search.


This story tore my city to bits. These things don’t happen here.

The mother-of-five, who is currently being held at Cornton Vale Prison, near Stirling is due to appear for a preliminary hearing at the High Court in Edinburgh.

Thousands of people joined in alongside the police in the search for Mikaeel after he was reported missing on January 16 this year.


Together, we helped each other through

But their hopes were dashed when his body was discovered 30 miles away, behind a house in Kirkcaldy, Fife, on the second day of the search.


I Seen police and forensic teams cry that week


We all cried watching this live


What human can do this? What makes a person do this?

Israel ‘Attacked By 30 Rockets In Past Hour’


Israel has been attacked by at least 30 Hamas rockets in just an hour, according to the Israeli army.

Hamas militants launched “a few dozen rockets” within a short period of time, the Israel Defense Forces said.

Some media reports put the number of rockets at around 40, but there were no reports of casualties.

The rocket fire was claimed by Hamas’s armed wing, the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, in a statement sent to AFP in Gaza.

At least four of the rockets were intercepted over Netivot by the Iron Dome anti-missile system, the Israeli army said.

Another 16 struck the area around the southern city of Beersheva, 25 miles from Gaza, and home to 200,000 people, the army added.

The IDF said a total of 80 rockets had been fired at Israel over the past 24 hours.

Theresa May launches major new inquiry into UK Political child sex abuse allegations


A few knew it was coming: https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/2014/07/06/huge-english-political-sex-scandal-about-to-come-out/

Political parties and the Security Service, MI5, will have their internal files combed by an independent inquiry to establish what they knew about allegations of child sex abuse by politicians and other members of paedophile rings, the Government has announced. Theresa May, the Home Secretary, said the BBC and religious organisations will also fall under the remit of a major new inquiry into abuse allegations, in the wake of widespread concern about the activities of priests and celebrities including Jimmy Savile and Rolf Harris. But the Home Secretary warned the work is unlikely to be complete before the next General Election, meaning any emerging findings about government failures will be less likely to damage the Coalition before the poll in May. She confirmed the inquiry will be able to call witnesses from a wider than expected range of organisations, including the civil service, the private sector, political bodies and other organisations such as the Church and broadcasters.

Mrs May also disclosed that if necessary it could be upgraded to a full public inquiry, with powers to take evidence taken on oath. Ministers will take unprecedented steps to ensure witnesses can speak freely even if they were serving or former public servants who were subject to the Official Secrets Act or other types of legal restrictions, Mrs May pledged. “It is my intention that people should be able to speak openly in relation to the evidence that they give if they are called as witnesses and if they wish to give written evidence,” she told the House of Commons.

“I will have to look at the legal issues around the Official Secrets Act but it is my intention that everybody should be able to speak openly. It is only if people can speak openly that we will be able to get to the bottom of these matters.” She added: “We need to learn what was going on. The inquiry is going to have to look quite widely and look at the documentary reviews that have taken place. “I don’t want to dictate to the inquiry how they are going to undertake their work but I’m sure the chairman and the panel will need to be alive to the fact that they will have to hear from those who have not felt able to speak out in the past.” She added that some victims and other witnesses will have been “fearful of the consequences”.

Mrs May said: “The inquiry panel will have access to all the government papers, reviews and reports it needs. Subject to the constraints imposed by any criminal investigations, it will be free to call witnesses from organisations in the public sector, private sector and wider civil society. “And I want to make clear that – if the inquiry panel chairman deems it necessary – the Government is prepared to convert it into a full public inquiry. “Given the scope of its work it is not likely to report before the General Election but I will make sure it provides an update before May next year.” During a Commons debate, Mrs May was asked by Tom Watson, a Labour MP who has played a leading role in exposing child sex abuse allegations, if the inquiry would be able to examine any files held by either the security services or Special Branch. She said: “My intention is that the fullest possible access should be made to Government papers in relation to these matters.

“Where there are files where there are certain issues around who can have access to those files we will need to ensure that we have an appropriate means of ensuring that the information is available to the inquiry panel.” She told another MP, the Conservatives’ Michael Ellis, it was important that the databases can be “interrogated and looked into”, adding: “There are issues obviously around certain matters that relate to secret and intelligence material, and access to that, but I am sure there are ways we can ensure that all appropriate material is going to be looked into whether that is appropriate for the review or for the inquiry panel.” In a separate step Mrs May announced Peter Wanless, the chief executive of the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC), will lead a review into the Home Office’s handling of historic allegations of child abuse after it emerged that an internal review staged last year had been unable to trace 114 files on the subject in the Home Office archives.

Mr Wanless’ review is expected to take eight to 10 weeks. Both review were ordered by David Cameron, the Prime Minister, after it was disclosed last week that a dossier of papers allegedly naming high-profile child abusers in Westminster had been handed to the Home Office in the 1980s, leading to the department being accused of sitting on evidence of child abuse involving political figures for 35 years. Lisa Nandy, a Labour MP, asked Mrs May for a “full commitment that this inquiry will consider not just police and social services but also what happens at the heart of power”.

She added: “If those systems are found to exist today they will be overturned, whether that makes life uncomfortable for political parties, whether it makes life uncomfortable for Parliament or whether it makes life uncomfortable for the Government itself.” Mrs May replied: “It is not my intention that political parties should be outside the scope of the inquiry. “It think this has to be wide-ranging, it has to look at every area where it is possible, that people have been guilty of abuse and we need to learn lessons to ensure that the systems that we have in place are able to identify that and deal with it appropriately.”

POPE: BISHOPS WILL BE ACCOUNTABLE FOR SEX ABUSE



Pope Francis celebrates the Angelus noon prayer from his studio window overlooking St. Peter’s square, at the Vatican, Sunday, July 6, 2014

VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis promised to hold bishops accountable for the protection of minors and begged forgiveness Monday from the victims of clergy sex abuse as he held his first meeting with several abuse survivors.

The pope celebrated a Mass with six survivors at his Vatican hotel Monday, but in his homily he didn’t spell out whether that accountability would include firing bishops and other prelates who systematically shuffled pedophile priests from parish to parish to avoid bringing shame upon the Catholic Church.

Victims’ advocacy groups around the world have pressed the Vatican for decades to severely discipline any complicit church hierarchy.

One of the six, Irishwoman Marie Kane, 43, said she asked Francis to remove an Irish cardinal, Sean Brady, from his post because of how he handled abuse allegations.

Kane told The Irish Times that she told Francis a “cover-up is still happening and you have the power to make these changes.” She said that he replied “‘it was difficult to make these changes.'”

Francis himself has been criticized by survivor advocates for how he handled abuse cases when he was archbishop of Buenos Aires, specifically for not meeting with victims and denying that he had handled the case of an abusive priest, said Anne Barrett Doyle, a director of the advocacy group BishopAccountability.org.

Even while the pope spent his morning with the three men and three women, listening to their stories one by one, several victims’ groups blasted the meetings as being “a PR event.”

The Vatican quoted Francis as expressing personal “sorrow” in his homily at the private Mass with the victims for the “sins and grave crimes” of clerical sex abuse against them.

Francis pledged “not to tolerate harm done to a minor by any individual, whether a cleric or not.”

“All bishops must carry out their pastoral ministry with utmost care in order to help foster the protection of minors, and they will be held accountable,” Francis said, according to the English translation of his homily, which was delivered in Spanish.

Many victims, especially in the United States, were outraged when Boston Archbishop Bernard Law, blamed for the cover-ups of abusive priests during his tenure, was given a prestigious post at a Rome basilica instead of being demoted.

“I beg your forgiveness, too, for the sins of omission on the part of Church leaders who did not respond adequately to reports of abuse made by family members, as well as by abuse victims themselves,” the pope said Monday. “This led to even greater suffering on the part of those who were abused and it endangered other minors who were at risk.”

“Before God and his people, I express my sorrow for the sins and grave crimes of clerical sexual abuse committed against you. And I humbly ask forgiveness,” Francis said.

Without naming specific cases, Francis noted that the abuse caused some victims to resort to addictions or even suicide.

“These deaths of these so beloved children of God weigh upon the heart and my conscience and that of the whole church,” he said.

Vatican spokesman the Rev. Federico Lombardi said two Irish, two British and two Germans who had been sexually abused as youths by clergy met privately for about a half-hour each with Francis at his Vatican residence.

Some abuse survivors not at the meeting said the encounter would likely do nothing about their complaints the Vatican has failed to punish bishops and other prelates who systemically covered up the abuse of minors. A German survivor advocacy spokesman, Norbert Denef, called Monday’s meeting “nothing more than a PR event.”

Prior to the meetings Monday, Francis has likely already met one Irish cleric sex abuse survivor, Marie Collins, who is on a panel set up by Francis to help him deal with the scandals staining the church’s reputation.

Francis’ predecessor, Pope Benedict, met several times with abuse victims, starting in 2008.

David Cameron ‘No Stone Unturned’ In UK Child Sex Ring Inquiry



David Cameron says he is determined to establish the truth behind the claims of a 1980s paedophile ring at Westminster.

A story I have covered for 6/7 months now that has led me from Canada to Vatican City to 10 Downing Street to Buckingham Palace and more. I said yesterday this would break today:

https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/2014/07/06/huge-english-political-sex-scandal-about-to-come-out/

https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/2014/07/05/pope-and-catholic-church-taken-to-court-for-sex-crimes-for-real/

David Cameron says he is determined to establish the truth behind the claims of a 1980s paedophile ring at Westminster.

Claims that politicians and high profile public figures were at the centre of a powerful paedophile ring in the 1980s will be investigated, the Prime Minister has said. David Cameron has said there would be “no stone unturned” in an independent inquiry into how public bodies had handled child abuse allegations, mainly dating back to the 1980s. Allegations that a powerful paedophile ring was operating at Westminster have been at the centre of those claims. Mr Cameron said: “I am absolutely determined that we are going to get to the bottom of these allegations and we’re going to leave no stone unturned to find out the truth about what happened – that is vital. “It is also vital we learn the lessons right across the board from these things that have gone wrong.


The allegations include claims of abuse by late Liberal MP Sir Cyril Smith

“And it’s also important that the police feel that they can go wherever the evidence leads and they can make all the appropriate arrangements to investigate these things properly.” A Downing Street spokesman said the speed of the inquiry would be of importance. The Prime Minister’s official spokesman said: “We want to make sure that answers are achieved as quickly as possible. Clearly it needs to be a process that commands confidence and credibility as well.” The Home Secretary will on Monday afternoon announce the full details of the inquiry, which the Chancellor, George Osborne, has said will be “independent and authoritative”. Theresa May is expected to say the investigation will examine who knew what and when and why allegations were missed, overlooked or ignored by public bodies.


Lord Tebbit believes an establishment cover-up is possible

It has been suggested that a panel of experts will take evidence from members of the public as part of the investigation but it will stop short of a full public inquiry. Labour has said it wants a full public inquiry by child abuse experts and shadow home secretary Yvette Cooper said there were claims of child sex abuse by politicians that were more recent than the 1980s claims. She said: “We need a wide-ranging review that can look at how all the allegations put to the Home Office in the 80s and 90s were handled. Any stones left unturned will leave concerns of institutional malaise, or worse, a cover-up, unaddressed.”

It comes after former Conservative cabinet minister Lord Tebbit said there may have been a political cover-up of allegations in the 1980s to “protect the establishment”. A Home Office investigation found that 114 official files relating to claims of child abuse by politicians have been lost or destroyed. These files are in addition to a missing dossier alleging child abuse involving around eight powerful and famous figures at Westminster in the 1980s, handed to the Home Office by the late Tory MP Geoffrey Dickens in 1983. The allegations include claims of abuse by the late Liberal MP Sir Cyril Smith and alleged paedophile activity at parties attended by politicians at the Elm Guest House in Barnes, southwest London. Lord Tebbit, who served in a series of senior ministerial posts under Margaret Thatcher, said the instinct at the time was to protect “the system” and not delve too deeply into uncomfortable allegations. “At that time I think most people would have thought that the establishment, the system, was to be protected and if a few things had gone wrong here and there that it was more important to protect the system than to delve too far into it. “That view, I think, was wrong then and it is spectacularly shown to be wrong because the abuses have grown,” he told BBC1’s The Andrew Marr Show. Asked if he thought there had been a “big political cover-up” at the time, he said: “I think there may well have been.”

Scotland – Do we want to stay in a union run by Criminals, Peadophiles and Liars?


This is a few years worth of research and as much proof as I can show. Look yourself, all roads lead to the title of this blog. BREAKING ON SKY NEWS NOW!

I did this blog earlier today and there will be a statement from the Government I guess today, this article below will blow your mind!! And Sky News are catching it all today. We all knew anyway!

This is a huge story and it will start to leak today. My blogs from before were because I knew. Research is everything Scotland!

I did this blog earlier today and there will be a statement from the Government I guess today https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/2014/07/06/huge-english-political-sex-scandal-about-to-come-out/ I have been researching for a few years now and I started on Corporate Greed, as my research took me forward I seen clearly a Peadophile ring with famous people, Jimmy Saville and just jailed Rolf Harris to name a few, also the Political spectrum. So I am asking Scottish people to look at the evidence and ask ‘Do we want to stay in a Union of filth and lies?’


They were all at it if you research hard enough.

I think today will be the day when the Government MUST face this head on, I also did this article here https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/2014/07/07/uk-government-to-give-statement-on-child-abuse-claims-as-story-gathers-pace/ I don’t want any Scottish person to think ‘This guy is spreading fear’ What I am asking is you do some research on Westminster. I did and these two blogs are part of what I found. This Union, this Union based in London I believe is Criminal, Perverted and lies. How do I know Westminster is Criminal? Well when the Tories ran to get into office, or Labour for that matter they both took large amounts of money from Oil giants and other huge companies. So when this happens, who does the new Government look to help? Do they look to help you and I? NO, they do favours and give jobs to the people who helped them get into power. I did a blog 4 years ago now on a site I visit from time to time called ‘Groomed for Power’ Here it is here: http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread570729/pg1 And here are two images to kinda make my point

A lot of this has changed, but this is how it stood at the time:

(1) the Hon. Edward Sebastian Grigg, the heir to Baron Altrincham of Tormarton and current chairman of Credit Suisse (UK)

(2) David Cameron – Prime Minister of Britain

(3) Ralph Perry Robinson, a former child actor, designer, furniture-maker

(4) Ewen Fergusson, son of the British ambassador to France, Sir Ewen Fergusson and now at City law firm Herbert Smith

(5) Matthew Benson, the heir to the Earldom of Wemyss and March

(6) Sebastian James, the son of Lord Northbourne, a major landowner in Kent

(7) Jonathan Ford, the-then president of the club, a banker with Morgan Grenfell

(8) Boris Johnson, the-then president of the Oxford Union, now Lord Mayor of London

9) Harry Eastwood, the investment fund consultant

AND ALSO THIS:

(1) George Osborne, now the Shadow Chancellor (Chancellor today)

(2) writer Harry Mount, the heir to the Baronetcy of Wasing and Mr. Cameron’s cousin;

(3) Chris Coleridge, the descendant of Samuel Taylor Coleridge, the son of Lloyds’ chairman David Coleridge, the brother of Conde Nast managing director Nicholas Coleridge

(4) German aristocrat and managing consultant Baron Lupus von Maltzahn,

(5) the late Mark Petre, the heir to the Barony of Petre;

(6) Australian millionaire Peter Holmes a Cour;

(7) Nat Rothschild, the heir to the Barons Rothschilds and co-founder of a racy student paper with Harry Mount

(8) Jason Gissing, the chairman of Ocado supermarkets.

Two figures on left of (6) and (7) were blacked out before the photo was released, causing wild allegations. Their identities are yet unknown. My top contenders (based on the influence in the City, the Athenaeum and their Oxford prominence) include:

(1) the Hon. Michael Gove, Shadow Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families, former president of the Oxford Union and “one-man think-tank”

(2) the Hon. Adam Bruce, the son of the Earl of Elgin and incumbent Unicorn Pursuivant of Arms

(3) the Hon. Edward Vaizey, the son of Lord Vaizey and the Shadow Minister for Culture

(4) the founder of Think Tank Policy Exchange, and conservative activist Nicholas Boles

(5) Steven Hilton, the director of strategy for Cameron and godfather of Cameron’s children
So.
Proof.
Jobs for the boys, and people being BORN into power and being brought up to be in positions of power.

David Cameron’s Report Card:

Look who’s bottom, OUR PRIME MINISTER!

So this is how it works in Westminster, we have the ILLUSION of people at the top, when we see clearly above you don’t have to be too bright to be given the chance to run this country. Go back and check the lists from my 2010 blog and see where they all are now. They are all in power or very powerful men. They saved their friends in the banking industry, and they will again. AUSTERITY WE SEE TODAY IS THE POOR, THE WORKING CLASS, ORDINARY PEOPLE LIKE YOU AND ME, PAYING FOR THE MISTAKES AND GREED OF THE RICH AND POWERFUL! I ask a simple question, do YOU want to be part of this Union any more? I say no. I say enough is enough. When this Sex with kids story breaks later today it will be DAMNING against 10 Downing Street. We must Scotland, as a nation, get as far away from this corrupt union as we can.

Appeal after 12-year-old hit by bottle at Orange Walk as religion rears it’s ugly head again in West Scotland (Video’s)


Typical Orange Walk

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

An Orange Walk in Scotland, mainly the West is the Unionist part of Scotland, protestants and people strong on the British Union. They happen all over the West and almost where I am. I have never seen one, I just hear about the trouble after them. Should Catholics want to to do huge marches all over parts of Scotland it wouldn’t be allowed. Frowned upon I guess. This isn’t religious nor is it Political, it is hatred. It stems through two football clubs, Glasgow Celtic (Born through Catholic ties, and the team I write for and support) and Glasgow Rangers (protestants and haters)

Police have begun an investigation after a 12-year-old girl was hit by a bottle while watching an Orange Order walk in Glasgow on Saturday. The girl was with a 22-year-old female relative on Glasgow Green when she was struck. Police said a number of people nearby, unconnected to the pair, were involved in a fight which resulted in the girl being hit by a bottle or similar item. She was treated for a head injury at Yorkhill Hospital and later released. Her relative was also hit with the item and suffered a cut to her hand. Det Sgt Ronnie Payne asked anyone with information to come forward and said the park was very busy with bands, followers and members of the public. About 4,500 marchers and 4,000 spectators took part in the event. Eighteen people were arrested, and police said those related to disorder, drinking in public and minor offences.


Medics attend to the 12 year old girl

Many ask why my 2 sons and 2 daughters support/follow or will support/follow Edinburgh team Heart of Midlothian, and my answer is simple. I don’t want my kids to be brought up in this hatred. I was involved in it for many years at various levels before I turned my back on it. Death threats are common. But in Scotland, if someone is REALLY going to kill you, they don’t warn you. But this was many years ago. I just love football, sadly this is the side to it I dislike and many, the majority do also. So it’s time to ask the question ‘Is it time for these Walks of Loyalism to stop’ in Scotland.

This is the trouble these walks cause, is it worth it? One religion marching through another’s?

Loyalists are Protestant, Republican’s are Catholic

UTTER UTTER VENOM

Britain blindly violating disabled people’s human rights’



Jane Campbell said the report is ‘extremely worrying and deeply sad’ for the UK

The UK government is risking “systematic violation” of international human rights law in its treatment of disabled people, charities claim. Britain is a signatory to a binding UN convention on the rights of people with disabilities , and the international covenant on economic, social and cultural rights.

Report published by ‘JUST FAIR’ http://just-fair.co.uk/

Human right the UK violate: http://www.un.org/disabilities/convention/conventionfull.shtml

Austerity measures and welfare reforms such as the bedroom tax mean the rights of disabled people to independent living, work, and social security have been undermined, causing significant hardship, say campaigners. A report publishedby Just Fair , a consortium of 80 national charities including Amnesty International, Save the Children, and Oxfam, says the UK is in clear breach of its legal obligations.

Support structures for many disabled people have disappeared or are under threat as local authorities cut social care budgets, while cuts to benefits will leave many disabled people without crucial help for daily living. Jane Campbell, a cross-bench peer who is disabled said: “It is both extremely worrying and deeply sad that the UK – for so long regarded as an international leader in protecting and promoting disabled people’s rights – now risks sleepwalking towards the status of a systematic violator of these same rights.”

The government vigorously denied the claim. Disability minister Mike Penning said: “It is simply not true to say we are breaching our legal obligations to disabled people. We spend around £50bn a year on disabled people and their services and our reforms will make sure the billions spent give more targeted support and better reflect today’s understanding of disability.

“We are fixing a broken welfare system, which trapped tens of thousands of people on incapacity benefit for more than a decade with little done to see if their condition had improved and support them into work.” The report calls for a right to independent living to be enshrined into UK law, so that government and public bodies are obliged to ensure policies and practices support – rather than compromise – independent living.

Aoife Nolan, professor of International Human Rights Law at the University of Nottingham and a trustee of Just Fair said government policies were compromising disabled people’s human rights. “Not only do these policies cause significant hardship and anxiety, but they also amount to impermissible backward steps in relation to disabled people’s human rights, contrary to the UN human rights framework.” The report will be submitted to the United Nations, which is in the process of reviewing UK compliance with its obligations to the rights of disabled people

US urges Israel to explain US born teen…


US urges Israel to explain US born teen beating


Tariq Khdair, kid beaten by 2 tough Israeli soldiers, When will this stop, eye for an eye hatred.

The United States has called for speedy investigation of an incident in which a 15-year-old American of Palestinian descent appeared to have been badly beaten by Israeli paramilitary police during riots in East Jerusalem. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki confirmed that the teen, Tariq Khdair, was being held by Israeli authorities in Jerusalem and said a consular officer visited him on Saturday. “We are profoundly troubled by reports that he was severely beaten while in police custody and strongly condemn any excessive use of force. We are calling for a speedy, transparent and credible investigation and full accountability for any excessive use of force,” Psaki said.

A video clip circulated on the Internet on Saturday showed two Israeli border police holding down and repeatedly pummeling a masked youth before carrying him away. The family of Khdair, from Tampa, Florida, who was visiting relatives in East Jerusalem, says he was the target of the punches, although the footage is blurred and the victim cannot be identified as he appears also to be wearing a head covering.

A later part of the video shows Khdair’s face with a heavy black eye and swollen lip. He is a cousin of Mohammed Abu-Khdeir, the youth who was abducted and murdered on Wednesday. The Israeli Justice Ministry said in a statement that the police investigations department was looking into the incident. Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said Khdair was one of six “rioters” caught and detained in the incident. The Council on American-Islamic Relations in Florida on Friday said Khdair was American-born and called on the State Department to seek the teenager’s release.

GO ON ISRAEL!! YOU SHOW THIS KID!! ISRAEL YOU MAKE ME SO ANGRY, WHY?
