Armenia’s security services say they prevented ASSASSINATION attempt on PM Pashinyan

Political rivals were preparing to assassinate Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan and seize power in the country, Armenia’s National Security Service said, announcing the arrest of several prominent opposition figures.

The operatives have discovered a large stash of weapons, explosives and ammunition at a home of a resident of the country’s southern Syunik Province, which borders Azerbaijan, the agency said in a statement on its website. The suspect, identified only as A.M., is believed to have had “anti-government views and disagreed with the prime minister’s domestic and foreign policy.”  

The owner of the stash is suspected of having reached an agreement with some politicians in Armenia, as well as disputed Nagorno-Karabakh Region, for his weapons to be used “for the seizure of power, termination of the activities of the prime minister by illegally depriving him of his life and usurping the powers of the government,” the statement read.

But those “grave crimes were uncovered and prevented by the National Security Service (NSS),” the agency said.

It also announced the arrests of the former NSS head, Artur Vanetsyan, former MP Vahram Baghdasaryan as well as unnamed member of Armenian Revolutionary Federation party and a commander of a volunteer paramilitary unit in connection with the assassination plot.

In recent days, thousands of protesters have been taking to streets of Arminian capital, Yerevan, demanding swift resignation of Pashinyan over an armistice he signed with Azerbaijan. He was branded “a traitor” after surprisingly signing a deal which passed some territories in Nagorno-Karabakh to Azerbaijan in exchange for a cessation of hostilities.

Russian peacekeepers will be deployed in the region to separate the sides as part of the agreement between Yerevan, Baku and Moscow. Armenian PM justified signing the document based on evaluations of the situation on the ground by the military.

Armenia agreed armistice with Azerbaijan to save soldiers’ lives, reveals embattled PM Pashinyan

The fighting in Nagorno-Karabakh, which had been a bone of contention between the neighbors for decades, erupted in late September. Both Yerevan and Baku insist that that have rights to the territory, which is internationally recognized as part of Azerbaijan, but is primarily populated by ethnic Armenians.

Second-placed Ancer, Im and Smith carry nations’ hopes at Masters

November 14, 2020

By Andrew Both

AUGUSTA, Ga. (Reuters) – Mexico’s Abraham Ancer and South Korea’s Im Sung-jae can make history for their respective countries at the Masters on Sunday, while Australia’s Cameron Smith could pen another memorable chapter for a proud golfing nation.

Tied for second, the trio who were team mates on the 2019 International Presidents Cup team will start the final round on Sunday four strokes behind leader Dustin Johnson at Augusta National.

It is a significant deficit to be sure but chances are at least one will play well enough to apply at least a little heat on the American.

Ancer and Im would be the first from their nations to slip into the famous Green Jacket, while Smith would be the second Australian after Adam Scott (2013).

Ancer is not the longest hitter around, but has been so impressive in his first Masters.

Not that he sounded particularly confident of reeling in Johnson.

“We know that we have to go low, and that’s it,” he said after a three-under-par 69, speaking for himself and the other challengers.

“It’s very simple. We have to just make a lot of birdies. I mean, if D.J. goes out there and plays really solid like today, it’s going to be pretty much impossible to catch him.

“It’s not going to be easy, but you know whatever has to be done out there has to be pretty special.”

Fellow Masters debutant Im shot 68 and said he felt like he knew the course well despite never having played here until now.

“I watched the Masters growing up so many times that I feel like I’m used to playing this course, even though this is my first time,” said Im, whose backswing is so deliberate it could be issued a slow play warning.

“I want to just stay composed, stick to my game plan, try to minimise as many mistakes as possible, and hopefully have a good finish.”

Smith, who also shot 69, is an Augusta veteran compared with Ancer and Im as this is his fourth Masters.

Excitement barely begins to describe his feelings.

“I mean, it’s what we dream about,” he said. “That’s why we want to play. I really just can’t wait for tomorrow.”

Colorado Professor Compares Questioning Voting Results To Holocaust Denial

Colorado Professor Compares Questioning Voting Results To Holocaust Denial

Tyler Durden

Sat, 11/14/2020 – 18:30

Authored by Jonathan Turley,

We have been discussing how the celebration of Joe Biden’s election as a “unifying” and “healing” moment has been lost on many who are calling for blacklists and retaliatory actions against anyone viewed as “complicit” in the Trump period.  Indeed, for years, I have been writing about a rising McCarthyism in our country  and the growing threat to both free speech and academic freedom. This hateful or unhinged rhetoric has on occasion come from law professors, but most academics have retained a modicum of restraint and tolerance.  For that reason, it was disappointing to read a bizarre attack from University of Colorado Professor Paul Campus who compared my discussion of possible voting irregularities to Holocaust denial.

Professor Campus writes for a legal site called Lawyers, Guns and Money and clearly took umbrage over my discussion of recent challenges filed over the 2020 presidential election this morning. The segment addressed the recent ruling in Pennsylvania that the Secretary of State violated the law in extending a deadline.  I also addressed President Obama’s comments about how these challenges may be undermining democracy. I noted that confirming the vote count only reinforces democracy, particularly in identifying problems for future elections.

My comments on a computer glitch in Michigan was the focus of the posting and generally my statement that we need to review the actual evidence that emerges from these cases. I have repeatedly stated that I do not believe that the current challenges are likely to overturn the election of Biden as the president-elect. However, I have stated that there is no reason why these challenges should not be considered and problems addressed. There have been irregularities ranging from the improper order n Pennsylvania to deceased voters in Nevada to wrongly awarded votes in Michigan.  Again, I have emphasized that these remain localized problems and there remains no evidence of systemic problems that would overturn the results in various states.

Campus however ignores the very interview that he references and falsely claims that I am “going on national TV telling lies to promote a paranoid conspiracy theory believed by tens of millions of Americans: that the presidential election was stolen from Donald Trump by massive amounts of voter fraud.”

Every interview that I have given has included a statement that there is no such evidence and that it is unlikely that such evidence will emerge.  However, while some were claiming the absence of serious irregularities within 24 hours of the race being called for Biden, I have noted that we are still waiting to see any underlying evidence in these cases.  At the same time, I have criticized the Trump legal team (in the very interview Campos references) and said that it was time for the team to produce claimed evidence. I have also criticized President Trump for his rhetoric.  Indeed, liberal sites have cited my interviews as expressing doubt over the evidence of widespread fraud.

Yet, Campos declared that this commentary amounts to Holocaust denial. (By the way, he includes a tweet from a person falsely suggesting that I failed to reveal that the software in Michigan may actually have been the result of human error. I actually said repeatedly in the interview that it appeared to be human error and that there was no evidence of any nefarious purpose. I argued that it would be useful, regardless of the findings, to look at the performance of new systems and software:

“What I don’t understand about this rush to end all challenges is what is being achieved here? People treating the president-elect as the president-elect. Most of us are supporting his going forward with the transition.

But we also don’t see the great harm to democracy in guaranteeing that votes were counted. If nothing else, not just for his election but for future elections. This is a very different election. We used new systems, new software; shouldn’t we take a look at that and resolve these questions?”

Campos however called for my termination for stating such views:

Should a history department continue to employ a Holocaust denier? Let me sharpen that up a bit: Should a history department continue to employ a Holocaust denier whose academic speciality is the Holocaust?…

To pursue this analogy further, Turley is the kind of mendacious troll who would just ask questions about whether the gas chambers and the death camps really existed, while of course acknowledging that many Jews — maybe even hundreds of thousands! — died because of “harsh conditions” in the concentration camps etc. etc. so you’re actually libeling him by calling him a Holocaust denier etc. etc. (BTW before anybody gets to that I don’t know or care whether Turley himself is Jewish, or whether he lost family in the Holcaust [sic] etc. etc. because the analogy is valid in any case m’kay snowflakes?).

Campos goes on to call for my shunning by my faculty and professors everywhere.  He also notes that I would ideally be fired for such an interview:

If Turley were a contract faculty member it would be appropriate to fire him immediately for promoting paranoid conspiracy theories directly related to his area of purported professional competence…. It’s s tricky question, but it’s a real one, and Turley should at a minimum be excoriated and shunned by anyone in legal academia in possession of a brain and a conscience.”

We have been discussing efforts to fire professors who voice dissenting views of the basis or demands of recent protests, including an effort to oust a leading economist from the University of Chicago as well as a leading linguistics professor at Harvard.  It is part of a wave of intolerance sweeping over our colleges and our newsrooms.

It is therefore an ironic moment as someone who has been writing about the growing intolerance of dissenting views on our campuses and efforts to fire academic.  Some have been targeted for engaging in what is called “both sides rhetoric” rather than supporting a preferred narrative or viewpoint.

Campos is arguing that it “would be appropriate to fire” any professor who stated that we should allow these challenges to be heard even though they have not and are unlikely to produce evidence of systemic fraud to overturn these results.  That is now a common view of academic freedom and viewpoint tolerance in academia.

In the end, I would defend Campos in his posting such views. Unlike Professor Campos, I do not believe that he should be fired for holding opposing views or even calling for others to be fired. That is the cost of free speech. Indeed, Professor Campos is the cost of free speech.

BLM/Antifa Thugs Attack Trump Supporters, Including Children, After D.C. "Million MAGA March"

BLM/Antifa Thugs Attack Trump Supporters, Including Children, After D.C. “Million MAGA March”

Tyler Durden

Sat, 11/14/2020 – 18:07

Massive crowds of people converged at Freedom Plaza in Washington on Saturday, joining other rallies around the country to show support for President Donald Trump and ask for fairness in the election process.

As The Epoch Times’ Allen Zhong reports, the participants marched to the U.S. Supreme Court holding signs that read “Stop the Steal,” “Make America Fair Again,” and “Trump 2020.” Before the start of the march, the crowd heard speeches from prominent Trump supporters including Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) and My Pillow founder Mike Lindell. Several other prominent figures including Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) and former Trump advisor Sebastian Gorka were also on the speaking list.

Participants chanted slogans calling to “stop the steal,” which is also the name of the grassroots movement organizing the event in part. Organizer Ali Alexander told The Epoch Times in a previous interview that the events are a grassroots effort by a coalition of about a hundred activists and influencers to show “support for President Trump and fair elections and transparent counting.”

Similar events, although smaller in scale, were organized in around 50 other states on the same day.

Everything was very peaceful (not just mostly peaceful) until the crowds started to disperse and groups of BLM and Antifa activists began to appear, agitating attendees, and eventually turning to violence… even against children.

As The Post Millennial reports, some footage is very disturbing and depicts a little girl being assaulted.

All out violence did not occur until people began dispersing. Some footage depicts a man physically assaulted, resulted in a head wound.

Other footage shows a young Trump supporter fleeing for safety as he is stalked by Antifa. He eventually sees police and yells for help.

The most disturbing piece of footage depicts a family being attacked by Antifa. A mother is seen attempting to flee the area with her small daughter. He daughter is eventually thrown to the ground in the middle of a fight.

More footage depicts Antifa stomping on a mans head.

Some footage shows people crying in fear as they are pursued by the militants.

It remains unknown how many individuals have been arrested but some footage depicts the police arresting people.

Developing…

So – when will the media admit that the boarding up of stores/businesses/homes ahead of the election was not out of fear of a Biden victory, but a Trump win and the inevitable mostly-non-peaceful attacks and looting that would inevitably follow.

Perhaps this is why Floridian Norma Scott says she will support Trump until the end

Norma had been vocal about her support for President Donald Trump before the election, and sees no reason to stop now. “I’m supporting Trump right up until the very end,” Scott said in her Trump shirt and buttons, carrying a flag.
