Smart: Video Shows Hong Kong Protesters Turning Tear Gas Into Harmless Solid Form

“This is what happens when you have chemistry grads fighting against tyranny.”

Video out of Hong Kong shows a protester turning tear gas into its harmless solid form.

The clip shows a demonstrator rendering a CS gas grenade useless by placing it inside a liquid nitrogen canister.

He then pours out the contents, which are solidified and therefore not a threat to protesters.

Viewers of the video were suitably impressed.

“This is what happens when you have chemistry grads fighting against tyranny,” commented Ian Miles Cheong.

“Imagine what they could do if they had degrees in Sociology and Gender Studies!” joked another respondent.

As we previously highlighted, with the protests showing no signs of slowing down, authorities in Hong Kong are now considering imposing martial law.

Chinese troops are also massing on the border, although most experts say they won’t be sent into Hong Kong.

Psychiatrist: Julian Assange Is ‘Preparing To Kill Himself In Prison’

Professor of neuropsychiatry testifies that Wikileaks founder is suffering from deep depression and auditory hallucinations

A disturbing testimony from a psychiatrist outlines that Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is in such a bad state in prison that he should be considered at ‘high risk’ of suicide.

The Daily Mail reports that Professor Michael Kopelman testified during an extradition hearing in London that Assange has “begun making preparations to end his own life including confessing to a Catholic priest, drafting farewell letters to his family and drafting a will.”

Kopelman, emeritus professor of neuropsychiatry at King’s College London, also said that Assange told him he experienced hearing voices in his head saying “we’re coming to get you.”

“He reported auditory hallucinations, which were voices either inside or outside his head, somatic hallucinations, funny bodily experiences, these have now disappeared,” Kopelman said.

“He also has a long history of musical hallucinations, which is maybe a separate phenomenon, that got worse when he was in prison,” the psychiatrist added.

“The voices are things like, “you are dust, you are dead, we are coming to get you”. They are derogatory and persecutory,” he continued, adding “They seem to have diminished. Subsequently the musical hallucinations have also reduced, and the somatic hallucinations have disappeared.”

Kopelman even noted that Assange “reported a near-death experience and wondered if the CIA would find a way to get him or mess with his head” noting that this “may or may not” be paranoia.

Kopelman warned that “The risk of suicide arises out of clinical factors…but it is the imminence of extradition and or an actual extradition that would trigger the attempt, in my opinion.”

Assange is languishing in Belmarsh, a notoriously horrid maximum security prison housing murderers and terrorists. For much of the time since being arrested on leaving the Ecuadorian embassy, Assange has been kept in solitary confinement. He is also heavily medicated.

The wikileaks founder faces extradition to the US, where he would be charged with an 18-count indictment related to hacking computers and conspiracy to obtain and disclose national defence information.

Professor Kopelman also noted during the hearing that Assange has been depressed “certainly throughout the time I’ve been seeing him.”

“It’s fluctuated a bit, his appetite has fluctuated, he’s had persistent problems with sleep and his mood state is worst in the early hours of the morning and that’s stayed consistent,” Kopelman added.

“Mr Assange was very reluctant to talk about his suicidal ideas and plans because he feared he would be put on constant watch or isolation,” the psychiatrist further explained.

The report notes that the QC for the US government argued that Assange is ‘exaggerating’ his psychiatric symptoms and ‘self reporting’ suicidal ideas, and that Kopelman is an ‘advocate’.

“I’m a psychiatrist, you’re a lawyer. I make my diagnoses on my criteria,” the professor is said to have replied.

Assange’s QC reportedly read out a list of multiple times, at least ten, that Assange had requested the Samaritans suicide prevention helpline number between August and November 2019.

Assange has been in the prison since April of last year:

Kim Jong-un Orders North Koreans to Hand Over Pet Dogs So They Can be Eaten

Communism strikes again.

North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un has ordered citizens to hand over their pet dogs so they can be killed and eaten as a new famine threatens the country.

Heavy rain, widespread flooding and crop damages have left the country short of food supplies, leading the Stalinist regime to demand more wealthy North Koreans give up their dogs, which are considered “decadent” luxury and “a ‘tainted’ trend by bourgeois ideology,” according to South Korean news outlet Chosun Ilbo.

“Authorities have identified households with pet dogs and are forcing them to give them up or forcefully confiscating them and putting them down,” a source told the newspaper.

The pets are rounded up, with some of them being sent to zoos and others being sold directly to the restaurant trade.

What’s next, cannibalism?

Back in 2017, North Korean defector Gim Gyu Min claimed that the famine became so chronic in the late 90’s that he witnessed people being forced to eat each other, including a mother who was arrested for cooking her own son in a cauldron.

“It was a common thing at the time. It was not surprising,” said Min.

Yet another reminder that Communism, wherever it is tried, always leads to starvation and brutality.

UK Police Reject Job Applications From Candidate Who Says Biological Gender Cannot Be Changed

Her opinions would not meet “the behaviours expected” of a member of the police force

Police forces in the UK have been criticised after they rejected an application in which the candidate admitted they do not believe human beings can biologically alter their gender.

The London Telegraph reports that a woman who applied for a job at Norfolk Constabulary was refused on the grounds of her “gender critical” opinions.

The police force told her that her views would “not be something we could ­uphold within the constabulary”.

The woman, who is already a police officer of 16 years, applied to a total of 26 forces elsewhere in the country and was rejected by over half of them for the same reason.

In her application, the officer asked if “gender critical” opinions would be “a barrier to my application?”

“I must point out that I am gender critical, which means that whilst I am firmly against abuse and discrimination to trans people, I do not believe you can change your biological sex,” the officer explained.

Police in the South East, who already employ the woman, told her that her opinions do not meet “the behaviours expected” of a member of the police force, and that she would likely fail a behavioural competency test.

The officer responded to the force, noting “I’m monumentally outraged that you couldn’t get a job doing what I do, and that my own job is in danger, ­because of what I believe – which is a belief that I think most people in this country hold.”

“My views on this topic do not mean I would act with intolerance or abuse, just as an atheist would be no less likely to be able to be respectful towards a person of religion,” the woman further explained.

“If there were serving officers with these views (as I know that there are), would their ­employment be under threat?” she also asked her employer, prompting them to ask her to provide “details and any evidence” of other officers who hold the same views so they can be “investigated”.

After the police forces were accused of overstepping their authority by ‘deciding which views are acceptable and which views are not,’ a spokesman for Norfolk Police responded, saying that “our objective as a police force is to always ensure our officers and staff continue to police in a way that builds trust and confidence by providing a service that is inclusive and unbiased for all.”

The ­National Police Chiefs’ Council, Chief Constable Ian Hopkins, added that “The entire police service is bound by and must ­adhere to the Equality Act and the ­police Code of Ethics.”

It seems that the police ‘Code of Ethics’ in the UK doesn’t take into account to scientific fact, women’s safety, or freedom of opinion.
