Persian Spring: Rouhani and Khamenei Could Be In Trouble

The Sweet Aroma of Change: Something Better Than Coffee May Be Brewing

DALLAS, TX, USA, December 31, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — The protests in Iran are attributed to the people being against the corruption in the Rouhani government. This represents only half of the truth. Interviews with reliable sources on the ground provide insight into the fact that this was instigated by actions taken by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).

This is significant because it displays signs of a division, not only with Hassan Rouhani, but with the Khamenei too. According to Vasudevan Sridharan, with International Business Times, the violent anti-government protests echo slogans like, “death to Khamenei” and “death to dictator” which can be heard in the rallies. The protesting has continued for the last 72 hours. The people of Iran’s voice are being censored through restrictions and direct threats to turn off the internet and block social media access.

Diaa Nasser, with Al Arabiya, confirms “several reports indicate that telecom providers in Iran have begun blocking internet access across several cities in the country as mass protests erupted for the third day in a row.” Hamrahe Aval, Mobile telecommunication Company of Iran (MTCI or MCI) and Telecommunication Company of Iran (TCI), are critical players in the censorship of the protestors. MCI and TCI are owned by Tosee Etemad Mobin Company. MTCI is a state controlled company with direct ties to the IRGC and is controlled by Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei.

This line of logic sends a call to action for hacker groups to fight against the censorship. The last time that the censorship was implemented at this level was during the 2009 election protest with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The people’s voice must be heard and from all indications, that appears to be the case.

According to President Trump, “The entire world understands that the good people of Iran want change, and other than the vast military power of the United States, Iran’s people are what the Irani leaders fear the most.” Could this be the beginning of the Persian Spring in the making?

தமிழ் தாயகத்தில் இவ்வாண்டின் சிறந்த மனிதர் (Man of the Year in Tamil Homeland)

இவ்வாண்டின் சிறந்த மனிதர்: விக்கினேஸ்வரனும், வவுனியா தாய்மார்களின் சுழற்சி முறை உணவு தவிர்ப்பு போராட்டமும்

இம்முறை விக்கினேஸ்வரனையும், வவுனியா தாய்மார்களின் சுழற்சி முறை உணவு தவிர்ப்பு போராட்டத்தையும் நாம் " இவ்வாண்டின் சிறந்த மனிதர் " என தெரிவு செய்துள்ளோம்.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, December 30, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — புலம் பெயர் தமிழரின் செய்திகள், ஆகிய நாம் வருடா வருடம் " இவ்வாண்டின் சிறந்த மனிதர்" ஒருவரை தெரிவு செய்வது என்று எமது ஆசிரியர் குழு (Editorial Board ) முடிவு எடுத்தது. இம்முறை விக்கினேஸ்வரனையும், வவுனியா தாய்மார்களின் சுழற்சி முறை உணவு தவிர்ப்பு போராட்டத்தையும் நாம் " இவ்வாண்டின் சிறந்த மனிதர் " என தெரிவு செய்துள்ளோம்.

முதல் அமைச்சர் விக்னேஸ்வரனை " இவ்வாண்டின் சிறந்த மனிதர் "க்கு தெரிவு செய்ததின் காரணம்:

1. இவர் ஒரு தமிழர்களால் தேந்தெடுக்கப்பட்ட அரசியல்வாதிகளில் புத்தி கூர்மையானவர், இசை ஞானி, ஆத்மீகர், நேர்மையானவர், பயமற்றவர், ஓர் நீதியரசர், விலைபோக மறுப்பவர், அவர் தமிழ் வரலாற்றை நன்றாக அறிந்தவர், தமிழ் மக்களால் நேசிக்கப்படுபவர்.

2. வடகிழக்கு இணைப்பின் பின்னணி காரணங்களையும் தேவையையும் தமிழர்களுக்கும், சர்வதேசத்திற்கும் எடுத்து விளக்கியவர்.

3. வடகிழக்கு இணைந்த சமஷ்டியின் தேவையை, அது இல்லாவிடில் தமிழர்கள் 20-40 வருடங்களில் வடகிழக்கில் அழிந்து விடுவார்கள் என்று உலகுக்கு எடுத்து கூறியவர்.

4.தமிழர்கள் "கள்ளதோணி" என்று முன்னர் சிங்களவர்கள் கூறிய போது தமிழ் பாராளுமன்ற உறுப்பினர்கள் சிரித்துவிட்டு அதனை ஏற்பது போல இருப்பார்கள்.ஆனால் விக்கினேஸ்வரன், தமிழர்கள்தான் இலங்கையின் பூர்விக குடி மக்கள் என்றும், சிங்களவர்கள் பின்பு இலங்கைக்கு வந்தவர்கள் என்றும் சரித்திர ரீதியாக நிரூபித்தவர். இதனை கேட்ட சிங்களவர்கள் இவர் ஒரு இனவாதி என்று அழைத்தார்கள்.

மற்றைய பாராளுமன்ற உறுப்பினர்கள் விக்கினேஸ்வரன் போன்று கதைத்தால், சிங்களவர்கள் நொந்து போவார்கள் என்று பயம்.அத்துடன் இந்த தமிழ் எம். பிக்களுக்கு சரித்திரம் புரியுமோ தெரியவில்லை.

நாம் இங்கு இவரது பலவீனத்தினை கூறவிரும்புகின்றோம்:

1. ஆரியகுள நாகவிகாரை தமிழர்களுக்கு எதிராக 1970ல் நடந்தமையால், பல தமிழர்கள் அதனை உடைது அழித்தார்கள் . விக்கினேஸ்வரன் அங்கு சென்று வழிபட்டது தமிழர்களுக்கு விரும்பாத விடையம். இது தமிழர்களை கவலைப்படுத்தியது. இந்த விடையம் ஐ.நாவில் (UNHRC) பிழையாக கருதி நல்லிணக்கம் நன்றாய் போகின்றது என்று கருதப்பட்டது.

2. சில தடவைகள், விக்கினேஸ்வரன் தனது அடிப்படை கொள்கைகளை முரண்பட்டு கதைப்பது.

3. சிங்கள அரசியல்வாதிகள் தமிழர்களுக்கு (70 வருடமாக) தீர்வு தரமாட்டார்கள் என்று தெரிந்து கொண்டு, அமெரிக்கா, ஐரோப்பிய ஒன்றியம், இங்கிலாந்து நாடுகளில் இருந்து இராஜதந்திரிகள், தூதுவர்கள் அல்லது அமைச்சர்கள் வரும்போது தமிழருக்கான அரசியல் தீர்வுக்கு மத்தியஸ்தம் வகிக்க கேட்கவிலை. ஏனெனில் உலகில் எந்தவொரு இனக்குழுவினருக்கும் சுதந்திரம் கொடுக்கும் அதிகாரத்தை அமெரிக்காவும், அமெரிக்க நட்பு நாடுகளும் மட்டுமே கொண்டுள்ளது.

4. தமிழர்கள் அதிகம் முதல் அமைச்சர் விக்னேஸ்வரனை நம்புகின்றனர். அவர்களின் நம்பிக்கையை மனதில் நிறுத்தி துணிவுடன் நடக்கவேண்டும்

வவுனியா தாய்மாரின் சுழர்ச்சி முறை உணவு தவிர்ப்பு போராட்டத்தை நாம் " இவ்வாண்டின் சிறந்த மனிதர் "க்கு பட்டியலில் தேர்வு செய்தமைக்கான காரணம்:

1. நாம் எட்டு மாவட்ட உணவு தவிர்ப்பு போராட்டத்தை கௌரவிப்பதோடு இவர்கள் தொடர் ந்தும் இதனை செய்ய வேண்டும் என்று வேண்டிக்கொள்ளுகின்றோம்.

2. ஆனால் வவுனியா போராட்டம் செய்பவர்கள் மேம்பட்ட சிந்தனை உடையவர்கள். இவர்களின் மேம்பட்ட சிந்தனை தான் அவர்களைத் தேர்ந்தெடுப்பதற்கான காரணம்.

3. இவர்கள் தான் நீர்த்துப்போய் இருந்த தமிழர்களின் உரிமை போராட்டத்தை,சாகும்வரை உண்ணாவிரத போராட்டத்தின் மூலம் பெரும் மக்கள் எழுச்சியை ஏற்படுத்தி மக்கள் தன்னெழுச்சி போராட்டங்களுக்கு வித்திட்டவர்கள்.

4. ஆனால் வவுனியா போராட்ட க் காரர்கள் இலங்கை அரசை இரு தடவை சந்தித்து. பின்னர் மீண்டும் மீண்டும் இலங்கை அரசாங்கம் சந்திக்க கேட்ட போது ஜனாதிபதியுடன் படம் எடுத்த மூன்று தமிழ் பிள்ளைகளையும் விடுதலை செய்தால்தான், நாம் சந்திப்போம் என்று துணிந்து சொன்னவர்கள்.

5. இவர்கள் தொடர்ச்சியாக உண்ணா விரதம் தொடர்ந்த போது சிறிலங்கா அரசாங்கம் மந்திரிமாரினை அனுப்பி கொழும்பில் கதைப்பதற்கு அழைத்தது. அங்கு சிங்கள சேவையாளரான சுமந்திரன் இவர்களை பிரதிநிதிப்படுத்த முயன்றபோது, சுமந்திரன் இந்த பேச்சுவார்தையில் இருந்து விலகி சென்றால்தான், தாம் பேசமுடியும் என்று சொல்லி சிங்கள சேவையாளரான சுமந்திரனின் ஈடுபாட்டினை முறையடித்தவர்கள்.

6. இவர்களின் முடிவான முடிவு அமெரிக்காவின் ஈடுபாடுகளால்தான் ஒர் நல்ல முடிவைத்தரும் என்றார்கள். அமெரிக்காவை அழைத்தார்கள்.

7. அமெரிக்கா, ஐரோப்பிய ஒன்றியம், சுவிஸ்லாந்து, சுவீடன், ஜெர்மனி மற்றும் பல ஐரோப்பிய நாடுகள் இவர்களின் போராடடத்தை நேரில் சந்தித்து வரவேற்றதோடு, காணாமல் போனவர்களில் அதிக அக்கறை கொண்டார்கள். இதன் விளைவே முதல் தடவையாக "சர்வதேச காணாமல் போனோரின் நாள்" கொழும்பில் சர்வதேச தூதுவர்கள் நினைவு கூர்ந்தார்கள்.

8. இவர்களின் கடின உழைப்பினால் ஐ.நாவில் இருந்து இரு குழுக்கள் அவர்களை சந்தித்தார்கள். அத்துடன் இவர்களின் போராட்டத்தினையும் வரவேற்றார்கள்.

9. எமது வரலாற்றில் எமது அரசியல் தீர்வுக்கு ஒருவரும் அமெரிக்காவிடம் உதவி கேட்க்கவில்லை, இவர்கள் தான் முதலில் தமிழர் அரசியல் தீர்வுக்கும் அமெரிக்காவை அழைத்துள்ளார்கள். உலகில் எந்தவொரு இனக்குழுவினருக்கும் சுதந்திரம் கொடுக்கும் அதிகாரத்தை அமெரிக்கா மட்டுமே கொண்டுள்ளது என்பதை தமிழருக்கு எடுத்துரைத்தார்கள்.

10. பல நாடுகளில் உள்ள சர்வதேச ஊடகங்கள், இவர்களின் போராட்டத்துக்கு பிரதான பத்திரிகைகளிலும் முழுப் பக்கத்தில் பிரசுரித்தார்கள். நமது போராட்டத்தை சர்வதேசமயமாக்கும் முயற்சியில் இவர்கள் வெற்றி காண்பதை இது காட்டுகிறது.

11. சம்பந்தன் தான், அமெரிக்க ஐரோப்பிய ஒன்றியத்தில் தலையீட்டுக்கு முட்டுக்கட்டை என்று சம்பந்தனை விலகுமாறு துணிவாக கேட்டார்கள்.

எந்தவொரு தேர்ந்தெடுக்கப்பட்ட அதிகாரிகளையும் ஒப்பிடும்போது இந்த பாதிக்கப்பட்டவர்கள் மிகப்பெரிய அளவில் தமிழர்க்கு சேவை செய்துள்ளனர். இந்த காரணங்கள் நாம் அவர்களை எங்கள் " இவ்வாண்டின் சிறந்த மனிதர்"ஆக தேர்ந்தெடுத்தோம்.

Happy New Year, Mr. President, and Help Sri Lankan Tamils in 2018, Says Tamils for Trump

Congratulations on your well-deserved success in our economy

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, December 30, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Tamils for Trump sent a New Year Message to President Donald Trump on Sundau, December 31, 2017.
Here is the letter:

December 31 , 2017

Dear Mr. President,

May God bless you and your family with the strength to carry on continuously as our 45th President with the same courage, wisdom and the optimism that you have shown to American people during your presidential campaign and your first year in office in 2017.

It is that spirit that has kept the American Dream alive for generations, and it is that spirit that will keep it alive for generations to come. Happy New Year, Mr. President.

The New Year is a time of hope and renewal. The Tamils for Trump group wishes the president- will work for international justice for the Tamil victims either through ICC or International Tribunal for those war crimes committed by Sri Lankan officials during the ethnic war that killed over 145,000 Tamils.

No Singhalese has ever been held accountable for any outrage against Tamils since the independence from the British. Justice and Truth are overdue, and we expect that 2018 is the year in which Tamils should get them.

US acted rightfully and courageously in helping the victims in South Sudan to determine their own destiny. The same thing must be done for Tamil victims in the northeast of Sri Lanka, and we hope you will get it done.

There is a need to help the Tamil victims in northeastern Sri Lanka to determine their own destiny and reestablish Tamils’ independence. We hope that Tamils can return to that stability enjoyed before the colonization by the Europeans in the island of Sri Lanka.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Tamils for Trump

Deafening Silence from Pope Francis as NY Catholic Leaders Ensure Rape Covered-Ups

Pope Francis cannot continue to remain silent as extremely vulnerable women and children with disabilities are being raped in Catholic Church and government institutions, as Church leaders protect the sexual predators allowing them to escape justice & destroy more lives

Pope Francis is still silent as the Jonathan Carey Foundation has revealed a rape cover-up scandal far greater than the Catholic Church pedophile priest scandal

We are at a defining moment in time to bring critical changes, we must protect our children and vulnerable people with disabilities. Leaders protecting sexual predators can no longer escape Justice.”

— Michael Carey – Advocate for people with disabilities and their families

ALBANY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, December 30, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — The questions now are why is Pope Francis silent? Why is the Pope not taking emergency actions to protect disabled women and children worldwide and in New York State, many of whom are Catholic, from being raped by sexual predators within Church and government institutions? Why is Pope Francis silent regarding atrocities that continue in New York State that his Church leaders are involved in that he is aware of?

Everyone knows that people with disabilities are victims of rape and sexual assault far more than the general public, yet why the deafening silence by Pope Francis who is the top leader of 1.2 billion Catholics worldwide? Only Pope Francis can answer these questions, but to date, the only shot back over the bow from the Pope himself has been to criticize ‘fake news’. Pope Francis, Bishop Scarfenberger, Cardinal Dolan and New York’s Governor Cuomo, who is a Catholic, have not denied the real news that the Jonathan Carey Foundations continues to expose.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/national/religion/pope-media-sins-by-dredging-up-sensationalizing-old-news/2017/12/16/69b8109a-e285-11e7-b2e9-8c636f076c76_story.html?utm_term=.c6b863966df3

To make the facts clear for everyone all across the world, the Jonathan Carey Foundation and its founder Michael Carey, will lay out the public indictment. The undisputable facts and these numerous reputable news stories are real news that Pope Francis cannot deny;

• 1972 – Willowbrook Institutional abuse and horrors exposed by Geraldo Rivera

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dbiYJkiX-Dg

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rPBhuaxpL90

• 2002 – Spotlight investigative reporters from the Boston Globe begin to release a series exposing the Catholic Church pedophile sex cover-up scandal. Dozens of pedophile priests in Boston alone were protected from prosecution by Church leaders and moved from parish to parish. This extremely damning series led to hundreds of pedophile priests being exposed and billions in payouts to rape victims.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=56jw6tasomc

https://www.bostonglobe.com/news/special-reports/2002/01/06/church-allowed-abuse-priest-for-years/cSHfGkTIrAT25qKGvBuDNM/story.html

“Since the mid-1990s, more than 130 people have come forward with horrific childhood tales about how former priest John J. Geoghan allegedly fondled or raped them during a three-decade spree through a half-dozen Greater Boston parishes.”

• December 2002 – Cardinal Bernard Law was aware and involved in protecting Geoghan and other sexual predator and pedophile priests and he was forced to resign. The Catholic Church protected Cardinal Law from prosecution and from spending the rest of his life in prison for his crimes and instead promoted him to Rome.

http://archive.boston.com/globe/spotlight/abuse/law_resigns/

https://www.npr.org/news/specials/law/

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bernard_Francis_Law

• 2011 – The New York Times award winning “Abused and Used” investigative reporting series which became a runner up for a Pulitzer Prize came out throughout all of 2011. This damning series exposed New York State’s extremely dangerous and deadly mental health care system which is rampant with physical and sexual abuse.

http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/nyregion/abused-and-used-series-page.html

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/03/13/nyregion/13homes.html?mtrref=www.google.com&gwh=1CDE20954CBA691814086052B413ABD2&gwt=pay

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/06/06/nyregion/boys-death-highlights-crisis-in-homes-for-disabled.html

https://www.nytimes.com/video/nyregion/100000000849083/a-failure-to-protect.html

• 2007 -current- For over ten years Attorney General Cuomo and then Governor Andrew Cuomo have protected countless sexual predators, pedophiles and rapists within State run and private mental health facilities and group homes from being fired and from being prosecuted. This timeline proves years of Governor Andrew Cuomo’s direct involvement.

http://www.einpresswire.com/article/414428414/cuomo-has-been-protecting-sexual-predators-for-over-a-decade?n=2

• 2013 – New York Times Editorial Board blasts Governor Cuomo for not changing anything and allowing the culture of abuse and cover-ups to continue. The Times clearly and rightfully lays the blame upon Governor Cuomo for his failure to ensure the most basic safety measures are put in place to protect the disabled, specifically cameras to prevent crimes and collect evidence, as well as police involvement.

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/08/10/opinion/protecting-the-most-vulnerable.html

“Two-and-a-half years ago, The Times reported horrifying abuse of people with developmental disabilities or mental illnesses by state employees, who were rarely punished for it. Gov. Andrew Cuomo promised action. But too little appears to have changed.”

“There is much the governor could do. He could require surveillance cameras in these facilities, just as prisons have them. He could make sure that the police get more involved.”

• The rampant sexual assaults and rapes of women and children with disabilities continue without anything being done to stop or prevent these heinous sex crimes or cover-ups. Almost all are never reported to local police or county prosecutors to ensure the protection of the sexual predators and pedophile caregivers, instead of the disabled. Here are the numbers within only one of six of Governor Cuomo’s mental health agencies, the Office of People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) – 325 reported sexual assaults every 3 months or 1,300 annually. The real numbers are close to 43,000 sexual assaults or rapes of the developmentally disabled in this one State agency alone annually or a third of its population. Only 3% of these sex crimes will ever be witnessed or reported according to this is a very important study and report titled, “Prevalence of Violence.”

http://www.mass.gov/dppc/abuse-recognize/prevalence-of-violence.html

• 2014 -Present – Both Cardinal Timothy Dolan and Bishop Edward Scharfenberger ignore numerous pleas for help for the disabled from leading civil and disability rights advocate Michael Carey and instead choose to protect institutions, money and the sexual predators and pedophiles raping our most vulnerable.

http://popefrancis.einnews.com/pr_news/423297753/pope-francis-must-intervene-in-new-york-sex-cover-up-scandal

• 2017 – Convicted pedophile and former New York State employed caregiver that regularly preyed on at least one disabled child for close to two years within Cuomo’s mental health agency, Stephen DeProspero called Cuomo’s system “a predators dream.”

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/crime/2017/02/20/predators-dream-ny-pays- 3m-family-molested-boy/98154714/

“New York State is paying $3 million to the family of developmentally disabled boy repeatedly molested by a staffer at a state-run group home who later wrote that lax supervision at the facility made it "a predator's dream."

"The lack of supervision there made it easy to do what I did," DeProspero said in a handwritten affidavit obtained by The Associated Press. "I could have stayed in that house for years and abused him every day without anybody even noticing at all. It was a predator's dream."

• Cardinal Bernard Law died reigniting a firestorm surrounding rape of children by priests, the cover-ups and how Catholic Church leaders that commit some of the most egregious crimes have escaped justice.

http://www.nbc-2.com/story/37107031/cardinal-bernard-law-symbol-of-church-sex-abuse-scandal-dead-at-86

https://www.nbcphiladelphia.com/news/national-international/OMalley-Laws-Death-Opens-Old-Wounds-465522863.html

• December 2017 -Pope Francis must now address this international crisis surrounding sexual predators preying on the disabled which is occurring in a far greater scope worldwide than the pedophile priest sex scandal. Pope Francis’s actions now are critical for the Catholic Church to makes significant changes. The Pope must start by removing all the Bishops and Cardinals involved in guarding the sexual predators and the Catholic Church Institution, instead of the most vulnerable. This damning New York Times news about Australia is incredibly important and the quotes below are extremely powerful.

Australia and Catholic Church ‘Failed’ Abused Children, Inquiry Finds

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/12/14/world/australia/australia-sexual-abuse-children.html

“Tens of thousands of children have been sexually abused in many Australian institutions,” said the report, which was particularly critical of Catholic organizations. “We will never know the true number. Whatever the number, it is a national tragedy, perpetrated over generations within many of our most trusted institutions.”

“It is not a case of a few rotten apples,” the report said. “Society’s major institutions have seriously failed. In many cases those failings have been exacerbated by a manifestly inadequate response to the abused person. The problems have been so widespread, and the nature of the abuse so heinous, that it is difficult to comprehend.”

It is important to repeat this quote again because of the significance of this statement; “Society’s major institutions have seriously failed”

“This quote is true, it is a fact – the Catholic Church has failed in this area. New York State has failed in this area. Many people in top positions of authority in many different institutions have failed to protect our children and people with disabilities. We are at a defining moment in time to bring critical changes, we must protect our children and vulnerable people with disabilities. Leaders protecting sexual predators can no longer escape Justice.Pope Francis must also speak out against these gross injustices and we must work together to stop the rapes and criminal cover-ups and we must finally end decades of discrimination against our most vulnerable.” – Michael Carey

The Jonathan Carey Foundation has been doing the investigative research and reporting on these atrocities for years similar to what the Boston Globe has done. Michael Carey, the founder, has worked night and day to bring the truth to light so that precious people with disabilities will finally be protected from these sexual predators and pedophiles. The truth must be told, Governor Cuomo is the worst of the worst enablers and protectors of these sexual predators imaginable, because with full knowledge, he has directed the criminal cover-ups of almost all sex crimes occurring within his agencies. At the same time both Bishop Edward Scharfenberger and Cardinal Timothy Dolan have known and have looked the other way.

Michael Carey is calling on Pope Francis to step up to the plate in a big way to begin to deal with the much bigger problems that have never been addressed. Top Church leaders and governmental leaders are involved in protecting and enabling sexual predators to continue to violate and destroy countless lives, Pope Francis cannot continue to be silent, he must remove these individuals. Pope Francis must remove Bishop Scharfenberger and Cardinal Dolan from being able to continue to allow these sexual assaults, rapes, cover-ups – these atrocities to continue in New York State.

Pope Francis also has the responsibility to speak out against any governmental leader involved in such heinous sex cover-up crimes and he has an even greater responsibility when these leaders proclaim to be a Catholic. Governor Andrew Cuomo is a Catholic and Pope Francis must demand that he immediately resigns for being involved for over a decade in covering-up sex crimes and protecting countless sexual predators. It is time that true spiritual leaders stand out in the light and take all of their responsibilities seriously, the sexual harassment, sexual abuse, cover-ups and people enabling sexual predators is on the international stage right now.

Michael Carey’s hope and appeal to Pope Francs personally is for him to do what is right and just for the defenseless now and for the Pope to come along side to help champion the next greatest Civil Rights Movement. We must finally ensure the protection, safe care and services and equal rights for people with disabilities.

I would encourage everyone to pray for Pope Francis and the Catholic Church as a whole that great changes can come forth for the Church and Society. I would also encourage everyone to pray for Cardinal Dolan, Bishop Scharfenberger and Governor Cuomo, although they must be removed from authority, they like the Apostle Paul can have an encounter with Jesus, receive His mercy and forgiveness like anyone can and they can become some of the greatest witnesses for Christ the world has ever seen. Justice demands their resignations from their positions of power and authority though now.

Please donate and support this vital Civil Rights Movement. Thank you.

TGTE Congratulates Catalonia Pro-Independence Groups' Electoral Victory

NEW YORK, USA, December 27, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ —

Today, on the 26th of December, 2017, Visuvanathan Rudrakumaran, the Prime Minister of the Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE), sent a congratulatory message on behalf of Tamil Diaspora to the pro-independence group in Catalonia on their historic electoral victory in the elections held on December 21, 2017.

In the congratulatory message it was stated that the pro-independence groups’ victory was a testimony to the fact that a constitutional prohibition, a prohibition by a judicial tribunal or an un-democratic dissolution of the regional government and the imposition of a central rule could not stifle a peoples’ dedication and determination to realize their right to decide.

It was further stated that the victory of the pro-independence group while some of their leaders had been imprisoned and others were in exile was a remarkable one.

In the congratulatory message, the TGTE shared the view eloquently expressed by Mr Carles Puigdemont that as a minimum they had won the right to be listened to. TGTE hopes that Spain will grasp Mr Puigdemont’s hand of cooperation to resolve the Catalonian issue based on the People’s Right to Decide.

Since TGTE is also pursuing the Tamil’s national aspirations while being outside of Sri Lanka, it was emphasized in the congratulatory message that the state of exile of Mr Puigdemont would allow him to articulate the Catalonian peoples’ political aspirations outside the clutches of Spain’s un-democratic coercive power.

The congratulatory message ended wishing success and a show of support from the people of Eelam Tamil in the spirit of self-determination and solidarity

CCHR Continues to Fight for Mental Health Rights in Florida

Mental Health Watchdog relaunches campaign to stop the unjust Baker Acting of children in response to the involuntary examinations of over 32,000 kids.

A parent should be brought into the process before something as traumatic as a Baker Act is initiated on a child but this is not being done which is a gross violation of rights.”

— Diane Stein, President CCHR Florida

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, December 27, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Having educated tens of thousands of Floridians on the mental health law in just over the past two years, the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), is relaunching their campaign to protect children from unnecessary involuntary psychiatric examination

The Florida chapter of CCHR, a non-profit mental health watchdog that exposes human rights violations and is dedicated to the protection of children, applauded state lawmakers earlier this year when the mental health law was amended to afford better protection for children who have been sent for involuntary psychiatric examination. This law commonly referred to as the Baker Act, allows a child to be taken into custody and transported by law enforcement to a psychiatric facility without parental knowledge or consent. Until recently once sent, a child could be detained for up to 72 hours for psychiatric examination. The amendment to the Baker Act now requires that the initial examination to determine if the child meets the criteria to be held under the law be initiated within 12 hours after the child’s arrival at a receiving facility.

Originally launched in late 2015 with the purpose of stopping the unjust Baker Acting of children, the campaign was begun in response to the alarming number of children being sent for involuntary psychiatric examination in Florida. The original intent of the Baker Act, named after Maxine Baker, the former State Representative from Miami who sponsored the Act, was to ensure patient rights and prevent abuse, however the Annual Report of Baker Act Data, revealed in March of this year a continuing surge of minor Baker Acts with over 32,000 children Baker Acted in 2016.

“In our opinion and based on existing law, a parent should be brought into the process before something as traumatic as a Baker Act is initiated on a child,” stated Diane Stein, President of CCHR Florida. “This is not being done and we believe this is a violation of the rights of the parent and the child.”

A primary focus of the campaign is public education and since the launch CCHR has educated close to 160,000 families on their rights under the mental health law. Anyone living in Florida who is interested in protecting children from abusive Baker Acting may obtain more information on this campaign by contacting CCHR at 727-442-8820 or visiting the center at 109 N. Fort Harrison Ave in Clearwater, Florida.

About CCHR: Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. It was L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology, who brought the terror of psychiatric imprisonment to the notice of the world. In March 1969, he said, “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health.’” For more information please visit www.cchrflorida.org

A Christmas Message from Bethlehem to the World

Jonathan Carey “Champion for the Disabled” Born September 12,1993 Killed by caregivers on February 15,2007

It is Christmas and Jesus/Yahushua, whose name means “God’s salvation” came to deliver sinners from their sins and to grant us the free gift of Eternal Life.

It is Christmas and Jesus/Yahushua – whose name means “God’s salvation” came into this world to save and deliver sinners from their sins and to grant us the free gift of Eternal Life.”

— Michael Carey – Advocate for people with disabilities and their families

ALBANY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, December 25, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — This message is not just for Christians, but for all Jews and all Muslims, it is for everyone in this world. “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16 –from the Bible

It is all about our love for God and our love for all others, including our enemies. It is also all about relationship; it is not about religion and all sorts of works. Christ Jesus –Yahushua paid the ultimate price with His blood to redeem all mankind back to himself so that everyone that receives Him can have an amazing relationship with Him now, not just at some future date. The Kingdom of God is at hand and His Kingdom of God is within you, Jesus said, so open up the door and let the King of all kings, the King of Glory –Jesus-Yahushua in. Surrender and yield to His Lordship. God’s true Kingdom is one of peace, joy and Righteousness in the Holy Spirit, which we all desperately need. Who in their right mind would turn down the free gift of eternal life that comes through Jesus Christ our Lord?

This is the gospel message of love and we too must love God back the same way he loves us, He demonstrated His love by giving us His all. Love is action; it is not mere empty words. Love God with all of your heart, with all of your soul, with all of your mind and with all of your strength by genuinely giving Him all of your heart, all of your soul, all of your mind and all of your strength this Christmas. The promise from our Lord, “this do, and thou shalt live.” – Luke 10:28

These are the two commandments that the Messiah, the Christ, the Anointed one, our Savior and our Lord Jesus –Yahushua gave to us so that we can live and prosper. Please understand this current truth though, Jesus-Yahushua is no longer a baby in a manger, He is the King of the Universe and He sits at the right hand of our heavenly Father in heaven.
“Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On these to commandments hang all the law and the prophets.” – Matthew 22: 37-40

The Jonathan Carey Foundation advocates for vulnerable children and people with disabilities and is located in the town of Bethlehem in New York State. Michael Carey is a Christian and he had to shout this truth from the housetops and at the same time we together operating in love cannot be silent as thousands of God’s children are being sexually assaulted and raped. The vast majority of these most of these heinous sex crimes are covered-up by institutions allowing sexual predators to escape justice. These are horrific atrocities that continue all across the world that severely damage vulnerable children and people with disabilities lives; we together must do everything within our power to stop this scourge. Michael Carey, the founder has a burning fire within that cannot be quenched, but must be released this Christmas as he sits in his home also in the town of Bethlehem watching the snow come down reminding him of this passage of scripture.

In the book of Isaiah from the Bible, the prophet Isaiah was sent by God to address a major problem within the hearts of the people at that time. I would encourage everyone to read the entire chapter to understand the significance of the prophet Isaiah’s task, but as you read, let the same words speak to you and all of us within the world now. These specific verses from Isaiah chapter one verses 16-17 will speak volumes to many;

“Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil; Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow. Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be white as snow…”

This evil spoken of is about people not caring for what is most dear to God’s heart-his children and all of the most vulnerable and needy, especially the fatherless and widows. We can be forgiven if neglectful and have sinned in these areas and get a fresh start, but we can and must now do everything within our power to honor God and help the most vulnerable and needy in our midst.

Here is another powerful truth from the Holy Scriptures that speaks to us regarding this as well;

“Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy. Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked.” – Psalm 82:3-4

Evil and gross wickedness are again being publicly exposed now in Australia. What is happening in Australia is tragically happening in many parts of the world. Countless vulnerable children and people with disabilities are being raped and used for sex by sexual predators and pedophiles that are being protected by Church and government institutional leaders. It is time to deal with this international humanitarian crisis and this dark stain upon society.

Within the last 11 days alone two major things have happened, first the New York Times further exposed the atrocities and cover-ups of sex crimes primarily in Catholic institutions and facilities in Australia and Cardinal Bernard Law’s death. What has surfaced once again in Australia is happening in many parts of the world just like the Catholic Church pedophile priest sex scandal https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=56jw6tasomc. The wide-scale sexual assaults of the disabled and the purposeful cover-ups of these crimes within New York State are far worse than Australia. For over ten years Attorney General Cuomo and then Governor Andrew Cuomo have protected countless sexual predators, pedophiles and rapists within State run and private mental health facilities and group homes from firing and prosecution. This timeline proves years of Governor Andrew Cuomo’s direct involvement.

http://www.einpresswire.com/article/414428414/cuomo-has-been-protecting-sexual-predators-for-over-a-decade?n=2

Catholic Church leaders in New York State are looking the other way as thousands of women and children with disabilities are being raped in institutions and group homes. Pope Francis has been asked remove Church leaders in New York State that have chosen to look the other way and have been part of allowing these atrocities to continue. This truly is an international crisis and Pope Francis has been asked speak out and take dramatic actions to stop sexual predators from being able to prey on children and the disabled. What the Jonathan Carey Foundation is bringing to light is occurring in a far greater scope worldwide than the pedophile priest sex scandal exposed by the Boston Globe. Pope Francis’s actions along with many other Church leaders are critical now for significant changes and reforms to happen within the world. The Pope must start by removing all the Bishops and Cardinals involved in guarding the sexual predators and the Catholic Church Institution, instead of the most vulnerable. This damning New York Times news is incredibly important and the quotes below are extremely powerful.

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/12/14/world/australia/australia-sexual-abuse-children.html

“Tens of thousands of children have been sexually abused in many Australian institutions,” said the report, which was particularly critical of Catholic organizations. “We will never know the true number. Whatever the number, it is a national tragedy, perpetrated over generations within many of our most trusted institutions.”

“It is not a case of a few rotten apples,” the report said. “Society’s major institutions have seriously failed. In many cases those failings have been exacerbated by a manifestly inadequate response to the abused person. The problems have been so widespread, and the nature of the abuse so heinous, that it is difficult to comprehend.”

It is important to repeat this quote again because of the significance of this statement;

“Society’s major institutions have seriously failed”

“This quote is true, it is a fact – the Catholic Church has failed in this area. New York State has failed in this area. Many people in top positions of authority in many different institutions have failed to protect our children and people with disabilities. We are at a defining moment in time to bring critical changes and to stop failing our children and the most vulnerable with disabilities. We must work together and do what is right and just to end decades of discrimination and ensure equal protections of laws.” – Michael Carey

Michael Carey was catapulted into a position of advocacy and was able to convince the New York Times to do the award winning “Abused and Used” investigative reporting series which became a runner up for a Pulitzer Prize. This extensive series exposed much of the horrific atrocities and should have led to major reforms, but tragically, Governor Cuomo chose to go the exact opposite direction and protect the system and his institutions, instead of the disabled.
This is what the New York Times Editorial Board wrote two and a half years following the first “Abused and Used” piece http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/nyregion/abused-and-used-series-page.html . Over four years have passed since and still nothing significant has been done to stop or prevent the rampant sexual assaults, rapes physical assaults, staggering numbers of deaths or the criminal cover-ups of most of these crimes. Major lifesaving and discrimination ending legislation to ensure cameras in facilities and transport vehicles and immediate direct reporting to 911 emergency call centers have all been blocked by Governor Andrew Cuomo.

These two portions below from “Protecting the Most Vulnerable” – New York Times Editorial Board – August 9, 2013 speak volumes;

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/08/10/opinion/protecting-the-most-vulnerable.html

“Two-and-a-half years ago, The Times reported horrifying abuse of people with developmental disabilities or mental illnesses by state employees, who were rarely punished for it. Gov. Andrew Cuomo promised action. But too little appears to have changed.”

“There is much the governor could do. He could require surveillance cameras in these facilities, just as prisons have them. He could make sure that the police get more involved.”

Instead of protecting women and children with disabilities from being raped, Governor Cuomo chose to try to hide and conceal these crimes, numbering in the many thousands. All appeals to both Bishop Scharfenberger and Cardinal Dolan, the two top Catholic Church leaders in New York State with knowledge of these atrocities and cover-up of almost all, have gone ignored.

Here are the very last words from the Old Testament in the Bible from the book of Malachi Chapter 4 verses 5-6;

“Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord: And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.”

“It is time for all fathers, Church leaders, government leaders, household leaders, all fathers worldwide to turn their hearts to their children and also to all of God’s most vulnerable children, the orphaned, the abandoned, the abused, the fatherless and all people with disabilities. If we do so, watch these children’s hearts be turned toward God, their heavenly Father and to all other fathers and leaders. We desperately need God’s blessing from above which will come if we obey Him in this area. We desperately need a spiritual awakening worldwide now; everyone knows this to be true. If we ignore God’s voice speaking to us and not make some basic change, we can self destruct. Let’s individually and corporately turn our hearts to the children and defend the defenseless now in a huge way and let’s watch what amazing things God will do in this world, even possibly through you.” – Michael Carey

A Message from Bethlehem to Rome – Pope Francis, Stop the Rapes and Cover-Ups

Pope Francis must remove Bishops and Cardinals that protect and enable sexual predators and pedophiles and he must publicly request the resignations of any person in governmental authority that is involved in such evil.

It is Christmas Eve and countless vulnerable children and disabled people will be raped today as many within the Catholic Church hierarchy remain silent

Pope Francis must now address this international crisis surrounding sexual predators preying on the disabled which is occurring in a far greater scope worldwide than the pedophile priest sex scandal.”

— Michael Carey – Advocate for people with disabilities and their families

ALBANY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, December 24, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — The office for the Jonathan Carey Foundation, which advocates for vulnerable children and people with disabilities, is located in the town of Bethlehem in New York State. Michael Carey is a Christian and he cannot be silent as these atrocities continue. Michael Carey is the founder of this federally approved not- for- profit charity named after his son Jonathan who was abused and then killed while living in State care. The Jonathan Carey Foundation has publicly released a series of investigative reports/press releases attached below that shine a spotlight on these matters, exposing the horrors and atrocities occurring against our most vulnerable.

The facts are overwhelming, there are massive numbers of vulnerable children and people with disabilities being raped by known sexual predators, pedophiles and rapists within the Church and within institutions and group homes worldwide and most are internally covered-up. These atrocities are not isolated in a small number of places or countries as many in the Church or governments would want everyone to believe. No, the truth is we have a massive systemic and societal problem of not caring properly for our children and people with disabilities. Instead of protecting our most vulnerable; institutions are covering up most of the heinous crimes committed against them within these institutions. This is not justice, this is wickedness, and the message to Pope Francis is, do everything within your power to stop these rapes and cover-ups. Do everything within your power Pope Francis to root out all the sexual predators and Church and government leaders protecting and shielding them from prosecution.

A number of appeals directly to the Pope have not yet been answered. Specific Catholic leaders named in this sex scandal, which is far bigger than pedophile priest sex scandal that the Boston Globe reported on, have not denied their involvement. When extremely powerful institutions work together to hide and conceal crimes, instead of taking dramatic actions to stop them, tragically, many more innocent lives will be severely damaged and institutions involved have to be exposed further to be held accountable. Both the Catholic Church and New York State government have not taking children or people with disabilities immediate safety, their heath, their equal rights or even their lives in many ways seriously. Hardly, anything significant has been done by either institution to protect these precious souls from sexual assaults and rapes after major exposés. These children and individuals with disabilities rely on others to care for them and to ensure their safety and equal rights.

The Willowbrook exposé and horrific abuses and maltreatment of the disabled surfaced in 1972. The only significant changes that gradually happened over many years was moving most people with disabilities out of larger institutions into thousands of group homes and smaller facilities throughout all of New York State. Sounds good, but almost every imaginable safety and abuse prevention measure to actually ensure safe care and services are still not in place in 2017. The end results from such gross negligence and incompetence, tens of thousands of residents are raped, physically assaulted, neglected or die prematurely every year in these unsafe facilities in New York State. These horrors, crimes and the cover-ups of most are happening all of the time in both State and private facilities and group homes and the Catholic Church has remained silent, Popes have remained silent.

In 2002 the Spotlight investigative reporting team of the Boston Globe opened up the flood gate regarding a very sick and wicked sex cover-up scandal of epic proportion. The facts were laid out with documents that Church leaders knew. Cardinal Bernard Law knew that many pedophile priests in the Boston area were protected and shielded from prosecution and moved from parish to parish. The end result of this gross negligence, incompetence and criminal behavior, countless more children rape victims by these same sexually deviant men.

In 2007 Jonathan Carey, who had autism, who was developmentally disabled, who was non-verbal and who had PTSD from being previously abused by multiple caregivers, was then killed. Jonathan was only 13 when he was suffocated to death. It was not just the two caregivers alone responsible for Jonathan’s death, but a system and major institutional failures that still have not been fixed to date. Jonathan’s law was the first new law passed after Jonathan’s death and this vital law which opens records of abuse and neglect to parents and legal guardians is still unknown to most parents and legal guardians, ten years later. The State of New York has hidden these legal rights from most parents and legal guardians.

Michael Carey was catapulted into a position of advocacy and was able to convince the New York Times to do the award winning “Abused and Used” investigative reporting series which became a runner up for a Pulitzer Prize. This extensive series exposed much of the horrific atrocities and should have led to major reforms, but tragically, Governor Cuomo chose to go the exact opposite direction and protect the system and his institutions, instead of the disabled.

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/08/10/opinion/protecting-the-most-vulnerable.html

“Two-and-a-half years ago, The Times reported horrifying abuse of people with developmental disabilities or mental illnesses by state employees, who were rarely punished for it. Gov. Andrew Cuomo promised action. But too little appears to have changed.”

“There is much the governor could do. He could require surveillance cameras in these facilities, just as prisons have them. He could make sure that the police get more involved.”

All appeals to both Bishop Scharfenberger and Cardinal Dolan, the two top Catholic Church leaders in New York State with knowledge of these atrocities and cover-up of almost all, have gone ignored.

Within the last week alone two major things have happened, first the New York Times further exposed the atrocities and cover-ups of sex crimes primarily in Catholic institutions and facilities in Australia and Cardinal Bernard Law’s death. What has surfaced once again in Australia is happening in many parts of the world just like the Catholic Church pedophile priest sex scandal. The wide-scale sexual assaults of the disabled and the purposeful cover-ups by Governor Cuomo in New York State are far worse than Australia.

Pope Francis must now address this international crisis surrounding sexual predators preying on the disabled which is occurring in a far greater scope worldwide than the pedophile priest sex scandal. Pope Francis’s actions now are critical for the Catholic Church to makes significant changes. The Pope must start by removing all the Bishops and Cardinals involved in guarding the sexual predators and the Catholic Church Institution, instead of the most vulnerable. This damning New York Times news is incredibly important and the quotes below are extremely powerful.

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/12/14/world/australia/australia-sexual-abuse-children.html

“Tens of thousands of children have been sexually abused in many Australian institutions,” said the report, which was particularly critical of Catholic organizations. “We will never know the true number. Whatever the number, it is a national tragedy, perpetrated over generations within many of our most trusted institutions.”

“It is not a case of a few rotten apples,” the report said. “Society’s major institutions have seriously failed. In many cases those failings have been exacerbated by a manifestly inadequate response to the abused person. The problems have been so widespread, and the nature of the abuse so heinous, that it is difficult to comprehend.”

It is important to repeat this quote again because of the significance of this statement;

“Society’s major institutions have seriously failed”

“This quote is true, it is a fact – the Catholic Church has failed in this area. New York State has failed in this area. Many people in top positions of authority in many different institutions have failed to protect our children and people with disabilities. We are at a defining moment in time to bring critical changes and to stop failing our children and the most vulnerable with disabilities. We must work together and do what is right and just to end decades of discrimination and ensure equal protections of laws.” – Michael Carey

Cardinal Bernard Law covered-up sex crimes and was part of protecting many pedophile priests from prosecution that were committing sex crimes against children. Cardinal Law was protected by the Church and he was promoted, instead of removed from the Church and prosecuted. Cardinal Law should have been held accountable for his crimes and he should have spent the rest of his life in jail, but no, he was protected by the Church. Countless sexual predator priests and caregivers currently have escaped justice for raping God only knows how many tens of thousands of children and people with disabilities. This is going on all of the times and the Church and governments pretend that everything is just fine? I don’t think so, it’s all surfacing now, because now is the time to fix the real underlying problems within these institutions and it must start by removing the rotten apples. The worst of the worst criminals are Church and government leaders conspiring together to obstruct justice and hide the sex crimes and other crimes within their institutions from the police.

Michael Carey has asked Pope Francis to first start by speaking out for the safety of children and the disabled. The Pope has been asked to swiftly remove two Catholic Church leaders involved in the sex cover-up scandal in New York State. Both Cardinal Timothy Dolan and Bishop Edward Scharfenberger have known for years of these atrocities, Michael Carey informed them in person or in writing numerous times, but they looked the other way. As a result of their silence and complicity to protect Governor Cuomo and his fraudulent State abuse hotline, thousands of innocent lives have been severely damaged or lost. Close to 8,000 calls go to Governor Cuomo’s internal abuse hotline every month. Eleven to twelve deaths of people with disabilities within Cuomo’s unsafe and extremely dangerous and deadly system are reported to this same corrupt agency -every day. Governor Cuomo set up an internal reporting and policing system that bypasses the 911 call systems set up for everyone else. to keep the local police out of the picture. Thousands of sexual assaults, rapes and criminally negligent deaths are covered-up every year.

The Christmas message to Pope Francis who heads up 1.2 billion Catholics and half of all Christians in the world, turn your heart to the children and the defenseless in every way. It cannot continue to be about protecting institutions, money and this evil any longer.

Here are the very last words from the Old Testament in the Bible from the book of Malachi Chapter 4 verses 5-6;

“Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord: And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.”

Here are some additional extremely powerful scripture verses and truths that must be listened to and heeded now as well;

“Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy. Deliver the poor and needy out of the hand of the wicked.” – Psalm 82:3-4

“It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.” – Luke 17:2

“Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my Spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.” – Proverbs 1:23

“Behold, the righteous shall be recompensed in the earth: much more the wicked and the sinner.” – Proverbs 11:31

Pope Francis the Catholic Church is at a pivotal point in history like never before. What you and other top Church leaders do or do not do will affect the Church and even the world for either the better or for the worse. Pope Francis, please honor the Lord and His Words and please honor God's children by moving in powerful ways to protect and defend the defenseless.
