Kung Fu Expert in China Beats Up Mob of 50 Trying to Evict Him

Zero Hedge
November 30, 2012

To understand the background of the incident - and the plight of Chinese homeowners attempting to resist eviction when the government wants to build something on their land - watch this short video:
Now that you’ve got the background, you’re ready for the story from the Telegraph on the Kung Fu hero:
kung fu 2413157b Kung Fu Expert in China Beats Up Mob of 50 Trying to Evict Him
When 38-year-old Shen Jianzhong was faced with a mob of thugs trying to evict him, he asked himself what his hero, Bruce Lee, would do.

The answer, according to a video that has attracted more than two million hits on the Chinese internet, is turn to kung fu.
For 20 years, Mr Shen had been practising kung fu, teaching himself Bruce Lee’s system in his courtyard home in Bazhou, Hebei province.

Working in a local gym as a fitness coach, he is also the holder of a world record, at least according to an association in Hong Kong, for the most press-ups in a minute using a roller. “I am now training to break the record for most press-ups on a balance beam,” he said.

At the end of October, Mr Shen was able to put his kung fu into action. For six months, a property developer had been trying to get his hands on Mr Shen’s house.


At first, the property company stuck up posters warning of dire consequences for any families who held out. Then, Mr Shen said, when 70 of the 100 households had left, the threats escalated.

This mob of thugs would block the street most days. They would pick on the women, threatening to kill their kids. Then people started tossing bricks through windows and letting off fireworks at night. Some people got beaten on the street.”

On October 29, as Mr Shen went to work and his wife popped out for a packet of instant noodles, a mob of “30 to 50 men” materialised at their front door.

“My wife tried to close the door, but they pushed it back and she tripped over. That is how the fight started,” said Mr Shen.

With a flurry of kicks and punches, he and his 18-year-old son, a fellow kung fu devotee, set about the attackers, rendering seven of them near unconscious in the hallway.

“It was self defence. I really cannot remember what kung fu skills I used.

It was quite messy. Only seven people were injured because the rest were scared and stayed outside. Some of them ran away,” he said.

When the police arrived, however, they were little help, insisting that since the thugs were unarmed, it was Mr Shen and his family who were in the wrong. They urged the family to sign the contract.

Instead, the Shens posted their homemade video online, where it has gone viral as a rare David versus Goliath moment in the bleak fight against China’s avaricious property barons.

They then fled, on the evening of November 21, to Beijing. Upon arriving in the capital, however, Mr Shen’s son was arrested by the police, who said they would charge him with assault.

“I do not regret the fight, but I am worried about my son,” said Mr Shen.

“I think they are trying to fit up him up with some crime. I am concerned that my actions will end up hurting him,” he said, acknowledging that officials may try to emotionally blackmail him into signing over his lease.
Here’s video of the aftermath … showing the injured thugs:

And - since this is fight club - here's Bruce Lee:

Obama seeks $1.6 trillion in tax increases: WSJ

November 29, 2012

By Robert Schroeder, MarketWatch

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) — The Obama administration and House Republicans were at loggerheads Thursday in fiscal cliff talks, as the White House reportedly called for $1.6 trillion in new tax revenue and an unlimited debt ceiling on the table, as House Speaker John Boehner said there has been “no substantive progress” in negotiations.
Boehner’s Thursday morning comments, made after he met with Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, briefly rattled U.S. equity markets. But markets finished the day higher, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA +0.28%   up 37 points and the S&P 500 SPX +0.43%   index gaining 6 points. Read more about U.S. stocks in Market Snapshot.
Speaker John Boehner
Late Thursday, The Wall Street Journal, citing House Republican aides, said the White House’s opening bid in the talks included $1.6 trillion in tax revenue as well as a “permanent” increase in the U.S. debt ceiling. The administration also wants at least $50 billion in new spending to spur the economy, the aides told the Journal.Read more.
Boehner called on Democrats to “get serious” about spending cuts if they want a deal to avoid the automatic spending cuts and tax increases set to begin Jan. 1.
For their part, Democrats on Thursday kept up the sniping over getting to a cliff deal. Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid insisted on raising top income-tax rates and said that raising the U.S. debt ceiling must be part of an agreement. Boehner said there would be a “price tag” for raising the debt limit — a comment White House spokesman Jay Carney called “deeply irresponsible.”

Fed stimulus to continue in 2013

Democrats are waiting for a “serious” offer from Republicans, Reid added.
Boehner pointedly said he is not walking away from discussions about the fiscal cliff. He told reporters that his meeting with Geithner was “frank and direct.”
Geithner offered some spending cuts in programs such as farm-price supports, but didn’t specify a number, the New York Times reported.
President Obama also wants to tax dividends as income and is seeking a 45% estate tax on inheritances over $3.5 million, the Times reported.
Underneath the public rhetoric, meanwhile, the shape of a deal appears to be emerging. Politico reported Thursday that taxes will go up by just below $1.2 trillion; entitlement programs will be slashed by at least $400 billion; and there will be at least $1.2 trillion in spending cuts — the same amount as the automatic cuts set to begin on Jan. 1 if Congress doesn’t act. Read more on Political Watch blog.
“All you have to do is just listen to what’s happening out there, and you realize there is progress,” said Sen. Chuck Schumer, a New York Democrat.
Geithner met with the Republican and Democratic leaders of the House and Senate to present the administration’s case for avoiding the fiscal cliff.
On the Senate floor earlier Thursday, Reid stuck firm to Democrats’ insistence on extending middle-class tax cuts, only to be rebuffed by his Republican counterpart, Mitch McConnell.
McConnell suggested capping tax deductions to raise revenue, instead of raising income-tax rates.
The debt ceiling is likely to be reached in the early part of 2013 without an agreement to raise it. Carney said it should be should be raised without any drama in Washington. “Asking that a political price be paid for Congress to do its job to ensure that the United States of America pays its bills and does not default for the first time in history is deeply irresponsible,” he added. 
And I though the purpose was to  raise taxes and cut spending not Raise more taxes and continue even more spending. Didn't Obama learn from his previous stimulus programs? They didn't work. All Obama wants to do now is keep his union friends working. He doesn't give a crap about the private sector who ends up paying for these freeloading Union workers. Union workers stayed on the job when millions of us were either out of work or on shortened work weeks. Now that states are broke, Obama wants to give more money to put those unions workers back. Isn't it time we see whats going on? Obama does't care about the economy or fiscal cliff. He put us in such debt with all his spending over the past four years and now he wants to do a repeat.  More free handouts to the leaches that don't provide anything to this economy.

Providing a Platform for Terror

by Samuel Westrop
November 29, 2012 at 5:00 am

 we really want to take an effective stand against extremism, we should not obsess over the extremists; rather, we should tackle those who facilitate, empower and legitimize extremism. The worst culprits are particular British Members of Parliament – elected officials whom we employ to safeguard our liberties and democratic rights but who betray these duties in favor of promoting the work of terror advocates. We have given terror and its apologists a platform, while we deny truth, reason and accountability a voice.
In late November, Labour MP Jeremy Corbyn will be hosting an event organised by the Palestine Solidarity Campaign in the British House of Commons with Mousa Abu Maria, an activist for the proscribed terrorist organisation Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ). Abu Maria will be speaking as part of a panel discussion – the conclusion to an anti-Israel lobbying day held by the Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC). The PSC is the leading anti-Israel organisation in Britain, whose members are accused by human rights activists of practising Holocaust denial and supporting terrorist groups such as Hamas.
Abu Maria spent several years in prison in Israel for his membership in the PIJ and for throwing Molotov cocktails. In 2003, he was released as part of a prisoner exchange. Five years later, he was placed in administrative detention, once again because of his connections to the PIJ. His appeals to the Israeli High Court of Justice were rejected.
Although Abu Maria claims he is no longer involved with the PIJ, as recently as May 2012 he has been photographed standing next to PIJ member Khader Adnan while holding a poster which declared support for Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorists Bilal Diab and Thaer Halahleh.

Abu Maria's organisation, the Palestine Solidarity Project (PSP), also took part in a demonstration in Nabi Saleh in April 2012, in which they displayed posters in support of a number of violent terrorists.

On the posters in the photo below, right to left: Ahmad Sa'adat of the PFLP, Marwan Barghouti of the al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades (he is serving 5 life sentences for murder) as well as Bilal Diab and Tha'er Halahleh of Palestinian Islamic Jihad.

Corbyn has described Israel's Operation Cast Lead, the last major conflict with Hamas in 2009, as a "military ethnic cleansing of the area". Regarding the recent Israeli Operation Pillar of Defense - which worked to destroy Hamas rocket stockpiles after over 700 missiles were fired at Israeli civilians since the beginning of 2012 - Corbyn has noted: "There is no limit to the hatred and persecution emanating from Israel toward these people [the Palestinians]."

Last year, Corbyn invited the Islamist hate preacher Raed Saleh to speak in Parliament. Saleh is a leading supporter of Hamas, and is known for his anti-Semitic and homophobic views. He has claimed that 4000 Jews skipped work at the World Trade Centre on 9/11 and that those who killed the "Martyr, Sheikh Osama Bin Laden" had "sold their consciences to Satan, and that the honour killings of girls is acceptable. One of Saleh's poems includes the lines:
You Jews are criminal bombers of mosques,
Slaughterers of pregnant women and babies.
Robbers and germs in all times,
The Creator sentenced you to be loser monkeys,
Victory belongs to Muslims, from the Nile to the Euphrates.
Saleh is best known for his frequent invocation of the 'blood libel' -- an ancient anti-Semitic claim that Jews kill children to use their blood to make bread at Passover. Even a British court concluded that Saleh's comments were hateful of Jews.
Despite the evidence of Saleh's animosity to Jews, Corbyn has continued to demonstrate support for him. Most alarmingly, in response to the uproar at the prospect of Saleh's appearance in the House of Commons, Corbyn has backed calls by Saleh's lawyer for an inquiry into supposed Jewish influence within the Conservative Party, falsely accused of organising the opposition to Saleh's visit.
Corbyn enjoys being described as an "anti-fascist". By invoking the language of human rights, Corbyn has managed to escape the condemnation he so rightly deserves. As a Member of Parliament and as a veteran of the Labour Party, Corbyn's support for people such as Abu Maria helps to legitimize the very existence of pro-terror groups.

It is little surprise that now, over a year later, Corbyn is once again providing a platform to a terror activist at the heart of the British establishment. Alongside Abu Maria, Corbyn's fellow panellists include Baroness Jenny Tonge, who was forced out of the Liberal Democrat Party after she stated: "Beware Israel. Israel is not going to be there forever in its present form. One day, the United States of America will get sick of giving £70bn a year to Israel to support what I call America's aircraft carrier in the Middle East – that is Israel. One day, the American people are going to say to the Israel lobby in the USA: enough is enough. Israel will lose support and then they will reap what they have sown."

Furthermore, echoing a Hezbollah blood libel conspiracy claim, Tonge has previously suggested that Israeli medical teams were harvesting the organs of children in Haiti.
In 2009, Corbyn announced, during an address at a rally by the far-Left group Stop the War Coalition, that he was proud to be hosting an event in Parliament with "our friends from Hezbollah". Hezbollah, like Hamas, is listed by the USA and Israel as a terrorist organisation. Its attacks have murdered Jews all around the World, from the bombing of a Jewish culture centre in Argentina to the suicide bombing of a bus full of Israeli tourists in Bulgaria. In 2006, Hezbollah terrorists crossed over the border from Lebanon into Israel and attacked an Israeli army patrol -- sparking a war in which thousands died. Hassan Nasrallah, the Hezbollah leader, has condemned the idea of peace with Israel and has said, "If they (Jews) all gather in Israel, it will save us the trouble of going after them worldwide". According to Jeremy Corbyn, however, Hezbollah is working to "bring about long term peace and social justice and political justice in the whole region".

There is an important difference between tolerating extremism and empowering it. The former permits persons such as Abu Maria to argue on behalf of his ideology at privately organised events. Empowering extremism is quite different and unreservedly self-destructive – by providing pro-terror activists a platform in the House of Commons, we sanitize their work and legitimize their message.

Alarmingly, Corbyn is just one example. The empowerment of extremism is a cross-party sickness. Last month, Jane Ellison, a Conservative MP, hosted a meeting in Parliament for the 'Save Shaker Aamer' campaign. Shaker Aamer is the last British resident held in Guantanamo Bay. The Save Shaker Aamer campaign and the organisations that support it, however, do not fight to preserve habeas corpus, but rather they defend Aamer's support for the Taliban. During her involvement with this issue, Ellison has been happy to share platforms with pro-Taliban groups such as CagePrisoners and Hamas supporters such as Yvonne Ridley.

A cursory search of British media archives reveals hundreds of editorials, opinion pieces and polls debating whether to give far-right groups a platform – most concluding they should not. And yet of the Islamists and terror activists who support terrorism against Jews, the execution of homosexuals and the stoning of adulterous women, the media has published almost nothing.

Indeed, the small amount of coverage that does exist has even been sympathetic. Mahmoud Abu Rideh, for example, a Saudi Arabian national who was detained by British authorities in 2001 and placed under a control order in 2005, worked closely with the hook-handed hate-preacher, Abu Hamza, and was accused of fundraising for and distributing funds to al Qaeda groups. In spite of this, Amnesty International and CagePrisoners campaigned on his behalf – both groups implying he was the innocent victim of a conspiracy.

Further, the Guardian and the Independent – two of Britain's largest broadsheet newspapers – ran puff pieces that painted Abu Rideh as a persecuted refugee who just wanted a peaceful life, and featured photographs of Abu Rideh's children looking despondent. And yet in 2010, Abu Rideh was killed in Afghanistan while fighting alongside the Taliban.

Both Corbyn and Abu Maria have adopted the title of human rights activists; the latter claiming he is "committed to the non-violent struggle for freedom and equality for all". It is possible to understand who a person is by examining what sort of company he keeps: Corbyn's support for Hamas and Hezbollah, and Abu Maria's involvement with the PIJ reveal that their putative commitment to human rights is nothing more than a façade – one that hides a far more sinister support for ideological forces with a sworn aversion to peace.

Despite the calls by Jewish groups for Abu Maria to be denied entry to the UK, it seems unlikely that the British Government will act. The continuing invitations by MPs such as Corbyn for pro-terror demagogues to speak in the British House of Commons is fast becoming the norm – voices of a hijacked humanitarian narrative promote extremism and hatred unchallenged by politicians, media and human rights organisations. We have given terror and its apologists a platform, while we deny truth, reason and accountability a voice.

Won't sell up? Enjoy living in the middle of a motorway! Road is built around a house after elderly Chinese couple refuse to move

Mail Online
22 November 2012

  • An elderly couple refuse to move as a road is built around their apartment
  • They insist the government's relocation compensation is not enough

A lone apartment building stands in the middle of a newly built road after an elderly couple refused to relocate.
Luo Baogen and his wife insist on living in the half-demolished building in the city of Wenling, in Zhejiang province, China because they believe that the relocation compensation offered by the government is not enough.
Now the only building left standing, the five storey block is a strange sight as cars drive around it while the couple remain living inside.

An elderly couple refused to leave despite plans for the road a railway station to be built directly where the building stands

To ensure the couple’s safety, adjacent rooms in the building have been left intact but all their neighbours have moved out, according to local media. 
The road paved through the Xiazhangyang village leads to the Wenling railway station and is yet to be officially opened.
Mr Baogen and his wife believe that the compensation on offer would not be enough to cover their rebuilding costs.
In the People's Republic of China, during most of the Communist era, private ownership of property was abolished, making it easy for residents to be moved on - but now the laws have been tightened up and it is illegal to demolish property by force without an agreement.

Biderman's Daily Edge: No Growth Means Market Crash, Regardless of Fiscal Cliff Deal


Militant Muslims Cutting Out Tongues

Gatestone Institute

Gatestone Institute
November 12, 2012

Recently on Egyptian TV, Dr. Abdullah Badr, an Al Azhar graduate and professor of Islamic exegesis, proclaimed that a new day has arrived, when there will be absolutely no more toleration for anyone who speaks against Islam—including people who speak against the implementation of Sharia law and its draconian punishments.
Currently on trial for libel and defamation of female Egyptian artist Elham Shahin—whom, among many other derogatory statements, he called a "whore"—an unrepentant Badr, appeared again on TV, and made the following oath:
I have sworn to Allah, that any dog—for that is how Allah described them, for they are like dogs that are constantly panting—that any dog who mocks the Sharia, or mocks Islam, or blames it, we will cut his tongue out, I'm saying it here: We will cut his tongue out! That's it. The time of transgressing against Islam, and speaking insolence, has passed—it's over. Today, the People of Lies [code for secular people] defend their falsehoods with great zeal; so shall we will defend Islam with all our might—no matter what it costs, no matter what it costs! I'm saying it here and now: Let the whole world burn, but Islam not be mocked.
None of this is figurative. Days after Dr. Badr made these pronouncements, on October 30, a roaming band of Salafis in Suez attacked and severely beat a young Egyptian grocery store worker, and even tried to cut off his hand, because he prevented one of their gang from using the store bathroom without permission, to which the bearded Salafi had responded: "I do not ask for permission."

The assaulted youth's brother, angered at what had happened, "insulted the men." Accordingly, Suez's new Sharia enforcers, who call themselves the "Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice"—styling themselves after Saudi Arabia's "morality" thugs—ordered that the man's tongue be cut out, claiming that he had insulted Islam (this is the same group that earlier stabbed to death a young Egyptian man for walking in public with his fiancée).

The father of the two boys, a longtime local, gave more detail, including how he had never seen the Salafi group, who "spoke in formal/Quranic Arabic"; also, in this video, the father explains how one of the Salafis, "a short man," kept screaming at the top of his voice that his son "has insulted the religion! His tongue must be severed as soon as possible!"
With help from others, the youth managed to escape Sharia justice.

Not all attempts of tongue-cutting are failed; nor is this matter limited to the Salafis of Egypt. In May 2011,a poet in Yemen had his tongue cut out by "unknown assailants," supposedly for writing a poem in praise of Yemeni dictator Ali Abdallah Saleh, who opposed the Islamist uprising. It is worth remembering that the prophet of Islam himself regularly had poets who offended him assassinated, including one woman who wasslaughtered while suckling her babe in her house at night.

Also, in April 2011, in "moderate" Bahrain, a muezzin was attacked, beat, tortured—including with boiling oil—and had his tongue cut, reportedly to Islam's war cry, "Allahu Akbar!"

Indeed, even in the non-Muslim world, Muslims are hacking at tongues. In Australia, a Muslim man was recently sentenced to eight-and-a-half years' jail time "for severing a woman's tongue." Among other things, he invaded the apartment of a non-Muslim woman he was formally involved with and "smashed an empty bottle over the 20-year-old's head several times, fracturing her eye socket. Tahir then dragged a knife across her face, cutting her mouth and severing her tongue, the court heard."

Why so much violence against the tongue? For the same reason that Dr. Badr would rather see the whole world set aflame than Islam insulted: the tongue—which utters words and free speech—is fundamental to exposing and combating the things of Islam, whether formal, Sharia law or whether the violent, supremacist culture born of it, very much in accord with the words of the 13th century Sheikh of Islam himself, Ibn Taymiyya: "Waging war verbally against Islam may be worse than waging war physically."

Muslims Are All On Benefits And Vote Labour

European Freedom Initiative 
November 26, 2012

A former Conservative peer has waded into the row surrounding the controversial new Tory campaign chief, Lynton Crosby, by saying she agrees the party should not court Muslim votes because they are "all on benefits".
Last week, the Mail on Sunday quoted a source suggesting the Australian strategist had told Boris Johnson, during the mayoral election campaign, to concentrate on traditional Tory voters instead of "fucking Muslims".
Ian Birrell, a former speechwriter for Cameron, called Crosby a "disastrous signing" for the Tories in an article for the Independent.
But this week, the MoS quoted Shreela Flather, a cross-bench peer who quit the Tories in 2008, as saying: 'I don't condone swearing, but Lynton is right to say it is pointless for the Conservatives to chase Muslim votes. They are all on benefits and all vote Labour.'

Gee doesn't this sound very much like what we have here in US? 47 Million now on foodstamps. Blacks and Hispanics and Muslims leaches sucking our tax dollars dry. They always vote Democrat. So why try kissing their ass unless you have more goodies for them then the Democrats continue to offer. 

The Labour party launched a stinging attack on the baroness, who has made several past controversial statements on large Muslim families and benefit claims.
Michael Dugher MP, Labour Party Vice Chair, said in response: "These shocking comments are totally unacceptable, there can be no place in politics for this kind of language or for such grossly offensive and ignorant attitudes.
"Baroness Flather should immediately apologise."

Why apologize for speaking the truth. Glad to see someone with the guts to speak out against immigration of these leaches. 

Baroness Flather, who was Britain's first female Asian peer said in September 2011 that Pakistani and Bangladeshi communities were failing to adopt the values of British society and said they should have their benefits slashed.

Muslims where ever they migrate, never assimilate. They expect the good folks that gave them a place to live, to change their culture for them. Islam is a sick ideology that brainwashes its followers into thinking they are superior to other cultures. 

In a speech the House of Lords during the second reading of the Welfare Reform Bill, she said: "The minority communities in this country, particularly the Pakistanis and the Bangladeshis, have a very large number of children and the attraction is the large number of benefits that follow the child.
"Nobody likes to accept that, nobody likes to talk about it because it is supposed to be very politically incorrect."
