ODI no. 4140

Chris Woakes destroys Pakistan in two overs by taking three wickets and conceding zero runs! Now, Pakistan at 6/3 chasing 352. Unless Babar Azam plays the innings of his career, England will crush Pakistan by a 4-0 margin.

Yup. England won convincingly. The last five Pakistani players played shots and each scored in the double digits. The tenth wicket partnership was a shocking 47 runs. For contrast, the four main batsmen -- Zaman, Ali, Hafeez, and Malik -- scored a combined total of nine runs. That's how you don't chase 351 in ODI cricket.

In the World Cup, Pakistan can beat the minnows and they might even take down a contender. However, they won't be getting anywhere near the trophy because their bowling is bizarrely weak and their batsmen can't handle pressure. Azam is the best batsman in the team but his strike rate is not high enough to shift the balance. They will probably be ranked #5 in the grand tournament when it's done.

Idiot of the Year

What exactly did Alfred Purcell want to accomplish from the stunt?

Surveillance footage captured Alfred Purcell, 57, removing the 9mm bullet from the pocket of his pants at Southbridge High School on Thursday morning before he dropped it on the floor and quickly left the scene.

He returned to the area 10 minutes later and pretended to discover the ammunition, before alerting administrators and sending the school into lockdown.

Hello, early retirement.

ODI no. 4138

The current ODI series between England and Pakistan has been a batting paradise for all players. A few figures:

1st ODI
England 373/3
Pakistan 361/7

2nd ODI
Pakistan 358/9
England 359/4 (in 44.5 overs!)

3rd ODI
Pakistan 340/7
England 341/7

Today, Pakistan became the first team in history to score 340 or more in three consecutive ODI matches. Then, just a few hours later, England became the second team to do so!

  • Pakistan's bowling is utterly mediocre. They likely would have failed to defend 400 in the 2nd ODI. Akram and Younis wept.
  • England's bowling isn't that great either. They haven't managed to get Pakistan out in three games. The Indian batsmen are going to give them serious trouble.
  • The pitches are made for batting. Never in history have two teams scored 340 or more in three successive innings and there's still one more match to go!

Conclusion: Quite a few batting records will be broken in the upcoming World Cup. Teams like England, Australia, South Africa, and India will likely smash 400+ runs against the weaker sides if they bat first.

Time to pay up!

The beast is hungry:

A proposed hike in Illinois’ annual registration fee for electric vehicles, from $17.50 to $1,000, is being called unfair by current EV owners, and a sales disincentive by manufacturers — just as the new technology is beginning to gain broader traction.

This is what happens after decades of out of control spending and debt accumulation: taxes go up! That, by the way, is a 5,614% increase in the registration fee.

Disavow Now!

The Supreme Dark Lord of the Evil Legion of Evil:

It's amazing how little they know me, that they think persistence will work against me when SJWs have been attacking me relentlessly for at least 14 years. Their newest line is that Unauthorized is a scam, which indicates that they have no idea what the investment opportunity I have mentioned is about. Which, I'm sure is more than a little amusing to all of the Arkhaven backers.

I laughed at the update.

The Religion That Must Not Be Named

Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale says the arrests of two men in Ontario charged with possession of an explosive device is not related to national security.

Nothing to see here, folks. Move along.

Police say officers searching the home found hazardous, explosive materials as well as a detonator device.

The two men – identified as Reza Mohammadiasl, 47, and Mahyar Mohammadiasl, 18 – were charged with possession of an explosive device.


Can you feel the peace?

Christians refused to submit to evil:

On 28 April, in Sirgadji village in the north-eastern province of Soum, after the Assemblies of God church had ended its service, Pastor Pierre Ouédraogo, 80, and other members were chatting in the church yard. Around 1pm a dozen armed men arrived on motorbikes to storm the place, a local leader, who wanted to remain anonymous, told World Watch Monitor:

“The assailants asked the Christians to convert to Islam, but the pastor and the others refused. They ordered them to gather under a tree and took their Bibles and mobile phones. Then they called them, one after the other, behind the church building where they shot them dead”. [...]

The assailants then set the church on fire – plus two motorbikes, then stole some sheep and a bag of rice from the pastor’s house before leaving.

The Muslims couldn't break her

A provincial governor, a federal minister, and a cabinet member were all murdered for defending Asia Bibi -- a Christian woman who was sentenced to death in Pakistan for a fake charge of blasphemy. She has finally been allowed to leave Pakistan:

Asia Bibi, a Christian woman who spent eight years on death row in Pakistan for blasphemy before she was freed last year, has flown to Canada where she has reunited with her family, her lawyer has said.

“It is a big day,” Saiful Malook told the Guardian. “Asia Bibi has left Pakistan and reached Canada. She has reunited with her family. Justice has been dispensed.”

This woman has gone through ten years of hell.

Bibi, a Roman Catholic from the village of Ittanwala near Lahore, was accused by Muslim villagers of insulting the prophet in a row over a cup of water in June 2009. The supreme court judgment said there was no evidence to support the charge.

Five days after the altercation, a local mosque broadcast allegations she had committed blasphemy and Bibi was dragged from her home by a mob and beaten in the presence of police officers before she was taken into custody.

Bibi was sentenced to death in 2010 in what became Pakistan’s most infamous blasphemy case. She always maintained her innocence.

Crazy bitch

How one lie can devastate a life:

A Good Samaritan claims his life is in tatters after a woman who he helped falsely accused him of sexual assault.

Kenan Basic spent two weeks in a maximum security prison, lost his job and is now going through a divorce, after a 19-year-old woman made false accusations against him.

The guy learned the correct lesson:

Mr Basic said the incident has deterred him from stopping and helping a young woman ever again.

Let the fish cry out for a bicycle.

Don't visit Islamic countries

An Italian student was murdered by the Egyptian state:

Egyptian police arrested and beat an Italian student who was later found murdered because they thought he was a British spy, according to fresh testimony reported by Italian newspapers on Sunday. [...]

“We thought he was an English spy, we picked him up, I went and after putting him in the car we had to beat him. I myself hit him several times in the face,” the intelligence agent said, according to the Correre della Sera newspaper.

The Egyptian spin is laughable.

Egyptian authorities initially suggested Regeni died in a traffic accident, but later said he was killed by a criminal gang that was subsequently wiped out in a shootout with police.

You can trust them because they're Muslims!

Oops, nothing to do with Islam

Did an Arabic-language presentation at a Philadelphia mosque in which children called for the decapitation of people who stand in the way of Islam conquering Jerusalem reflect the views of management?

It was the owner of the building, the Muslim American Society Islamic Center in North Philadelphia, that uploaded video of the children at the April 17 “Ummah Day” event to its Facebook page.

Apparently nobody had a problem with the presentation or the video until its contents were translated from Arabic into English and spotlighted Friday by the Middle East Media Research Institute.

These Muslims in America uploaded a video in which kids sang about chopping off heads and eternal torture. You, infidels, weren't meant to see that! It could happen to anyone!

The Dangerous Nigger

Hours after being knocked off Facebook and Instagram last week, provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos, Patient Zero for Twitter-banning, joined the messaging app Telegram and wasted no time firing off the n-word.

To his growing list of followers there, he wrote, ‘Like John Lennon, I take “n*gger” to mean any oppressed person. Today’s n*ggers are me, Laura [Loomer], and Alex Jones,’ adding that his black husband gave him permission to write that.

Read the whole thing. At the end, we get a list of deplorables who've been banned from various platforms. The bit here is sad and funny:

Milo Yiannopoulos

Banned from: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, PayPal, Venmo, Eventbrite, Shopify, Patreon, Coinbase, Periscope, Mailchimp, Tumblr, the nation of Australia

He got banned from a continent!

Lethal incompetence

Non-Muslim countries need to strictly enforce their immigration policies.

Sri Lanka has expelled over 600 foreign nationals, including around 200 Islamic clerics, since the Easter suicide bombings blamed on a local terror group, a minister told AFP Sunday.

Home Affairs Minister Vajira Abeywardena said the clerics had entered the country legally, but amid a security crackdown after the attacks were found to have overstayed their visas, for which fines were imposed and they were expelled from the island.

This means that the Sri Lankans are:

A) Nazis.

B) Racissss.

C) Trump Supporters.

D) White Supremacists.

E) All of the above.

Don't expect the mainstream media to be discussing this story in detail.

The Rise of Canopy Growth

From a $3 share price to $66 in just five years.

At the time, the market capitalization of this company was around CAD$50 million. Today, it's over $22 billion. That's 10 billion more than the second biggest cannabis company.

More fun for cops

Rantz: King County won’t charge criminals assaulting cops while resisting arrest.

King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg will “not file [charges] when the assault can be best described as resisting” an arrest from an officer, his office confirms. This position is deeply troubling to law enforcement officers, and King County Sheriff Mitzi Johanknecht says “we need to rethink this.”

So, now, dumb apprehended thugs will attack the police knowing that there won't be any legal consequences for it. This will actually result in more of them getting killed. Why would a police officer risk getting punched or kicked when he can legally shoot the suspect to avoid personal harm?

Future of the West?

Life of Christian women in Pakistan:

The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) on Thursday arrested a gang involved in trafficking of Christian girls to China on the false pretext of marriage. [...]

Insiders revealed that Christian women were subjected to sexual exploitation after being trafficked to the neighbouring country soon after their false marriage.

The next part is truly sick:

Recently, reports surfaced from Lahore and parts of Southern Punjab that Pakistani women were being illegally trafficked in the guise of false marriage and then their organs were sold in China.

They have to go back

A man was arrested at the Charlotte Douglas International Airport on Tuesday en route to the United States from Pakistan. Waqar Ul-Hassan was charged with two counts of making a false statement involving terrorism stemming from two interviews with FBI agents in May and October 2015. According to an affidavit filed in federal court on Tuesday, Hassan has ties to and provided or attempted to provide financial support to both ISIS and a Pakistani terrorist group called Jaish-e-Mohammed, more commonly known as JeM.

Waqar Ul-Hassan is a quintessential modern Muslim. He provided money to those who take pleasure in murdering Americans and he has no qualms about living ... in the US.

The complaint said Hassan’s family moved to the United States from Pakistan in 1999, originally settling in Brooklyn, New York before moving to Virginia. Hassan, the complaint said, is a naturalized American citizen who also retained Pakistani citizenship.

White people have to control their suicidal altruism and stop opening their doors to such low-IQ monsters who love the fruits of Western Civilization while doing their best to burn it all down.

Colored Calamity

The government in America has transferred literally trillions of dollars from Whites to Blacks over decades. What's a few $750 more?

As demographic change sweeps away Anglo-rule from Texas, the erosion of the Anglo-American heritage of the judicial system is swift.

Black Dallas District Attorney John Creuzot, who ran on a platform of ending mass incarceration (i.e. stopping police from arresting black and brown criminals) has now introduced sweeping reforms to stop police Dallas County from prosecuting theft of personal items worth less than $750.

Message to colored criminals: it's okay to steal phones, small mail parcels, and bicycles. Motorcycles and cars are off limits ... for now.
