Political Abductions & White Van Incidents[edit]
As reported by The Sunday Leader, Major General Prasad Samarasinghe the former Military Spokesman and Director, Directorate of Media in the Army, has been passing highly sensitive information to the US Embassy in Colombo on abductions. Many of those abducted were believed to have been individuals who had fallen foul of the Rajapaksa trio, Mahinda, Basil and Gotabhaya. During her visit to the country, United Nations Human Rights Commissioner Navanetham Pillay expressed her disappointment over “white van” related disappearances reported in Colombo, and other parts of the country, which were not covered by the Commission of Inquiry on Disappearances set up by the government.[35][36][37]

While Trump was never accused of doing anything illegal, he worked extensively with companies controlled by the mafia on properties in New York and Atlantic City, including Trump Tower and Trump Plaza.

Almost as powerful is his younger brother, Gotabhaya, who serves as Secretary of Defence. He was a key architect of the campaign against the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) that climaxed with the assault on Mullaitivu beach, claiming 40,000 lives in 2009.

Rajapaksas’ US assets revealed
FRIDAY, 12 DECEMBER 2014 08:56 17 COMMENTS E-MAIL| PRINT |PDF
Information regarding a part of the billions worth of assets in the USA belonging to Basil Rajapaksa and Gotabhaya Rajapaksa, the younger brothers of President Rajapaksa, has been revealed.

Among the assets are 4 houses in California belonging to Mrs. Pushpa Rajapaksa, the wife of Minister Basil Rajapaksa. Their addresses are (1) 5581 Homecoming, Mira Loma, CA 91752(2) 15067 Preston Dr, Fontana, CA 92336 (3) 222 Dexter St, Covina, CA 91723 (4) 15067 Preston Dr, Fontana, CA 92336. The details of these houses could be viewed by anyone by entering http://radaris.com/ , the web browser that gives details regarding people and their properties in the USA.

Also, information regarding 2 houses belonging to Ayoma Rajapaksa, the wife of Defense Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa has been revealed. They are ^1& 1341 Wickham Ct, San Dimas, CA 91773 ^2& 303 S Cataract Ave, San Dimas, CA 91773.

By 2007 both of them owned only one house each in California. They were a house in Fontana owned by Mrs. Pushpa Rajapaksa and another in San Dimas owned by Mrs. Ayoma Rajapaksa.

During this period the market value of Mrs. Pushpa Rajapaksa’s house was estimated as US$ 4.5 million. The value of the old house belonging to Mrs. Ayoma Rajapaksa in San Damas was US$ 9,95,000.

Parliamentarians and executive officials of the government have to reveal their assets annually. However, President Rajapaksa amended this in 2007 which stated duel citizens need not reveal assets in the other country.

At a special ceremony arranged by the Army in the former LTTE capital, Kilinochchi, on Saturday, about 100 women in the age group of 18-22 will be selected to undergo training, said an official. Asked if some of the former LTTE women wing members would also be recruited, the official said anyone can take part in the selection process.

The selection is into the soldier (other rank) category and the recruitment will be held at the headquarters of the 6{+t}{+h}Volunteer Battalion, Sri Lanka Women’s Corps near Kilinochchi.

A government note said “as part of the government’s effort at reconciliation, a recruitment drive targeting Tamil girls has been initiated by the Commander of the Army with the concurrence of Secretary of Defence and Urban Development, Gotabaya Rajapaksa”.

Last year, Sri Lanka began recruiting Tamils to the police force. About 1,000 persons were trained and deployed. But the majority of the force still remains Sinhalese in the Tamil majority areas. While this in itself is not an issue, the fact that the officials are unable to converse in Tamil is a serious problem in the Northern Province.

In the 1980s, Donald Trump was short on cash but eager to get Holiday Inn involved in a new casino project in Atlantic City

Evangelical Christians, at the moment, are totally enamored with a candidate who has profited off strip clubs

Christians Cringe at Donald Trump’s Sexy Past
Trump’s numbers with Evangelicals are up—but not all of them are singing his praises.
Evangelical Christians, at the moment, are totally enamored with a candidate who has profited off strip clubs, cheated on his wife, and appeared on the cover of the nation’s pre-eminent porn magazine.
And to top it off, Jerry Falwell Jr.—the heir of the Moral Majority mantle—just endorsed him.
There’s plenty of explanations for conservative Christians’ Trump-lovin’ ways, and recent polling shows he’s these voters’ favorite (a new NBC poll shows him with the most support of white Evangelical Republican voters, 37 percent).

But this trend has many Evangelical leaders irate, perplexed, and hankering for some below-the-belt attacks on Trump. The time for policy analysis is over, they say—now it’s about to get Biblical, Falwell be damned.
Minutes after The Washington Post broke news of the Liberty University president’s endorsement, Russell Moore, a powerful Southern Baptist leader, subtweeted Falwell with a link to the Southern Baptist Convention’s 1998 “Resolution on Moral Character of Public Officials.”
“[W]e urge all Americans to embrace and act on the conviction that character does count in public office, and to elect those officials and candidates who, although imperfect, demonstrate consistent honesty, moral purity and the highest character,” the statement reads.
Some Evangelical leaders hope Trump’s moral character will get a little more attention in the coming days. When it comes to the mogul, there’s a ton of material to work with—and attacks like these have worked before. Allegations of sexual harassment tanked Herman Cain’s insurgent-style campaign, and a scurrilous (and untrue) whisper campaign about an affair likely played a role in John McCain’s loss to George W. Bush in 2000. The fact that Ronald Reagan got divorced even once gave many conservative primary voters pause when he first telegraphed his presidential ambitions. And to this day, most Republican presidential contenders act like caucus-goers are voting for the winner of a Bible verse memorization contest.
So far, Trump’s top foes have largely steered clear of attacking him based on his sexcapades and scandals. Even while he and Rubio lob birther-esque attacks at Ted Cruz for being born in Canada, Trump has evaded any hard-hitting criticism for his multiple marriages, casino ownership, and appearance on the cover of Playboy magazine.
A series of tweets from Sen. Ben Sasse, a freshman Republican from Nebraska, may suggest that the days of giving Trump a pass over his New York-values personal life are over.
“You brag abt many affairs w/ married women,” the senator tweeted on Jan. 24, addressing Trump. “Have you repented? To harmed children & spouses? Do you think it matters?”
In The Art of the Deal, Trump boasted about bedding other men’s wives.
“If I told the real stories of my experiences with women, often seemingly very happily married and important women, this book would be a guaranteed best-seller,” he wrote.
Republican voters have forgiven a host of candidates for marital lapses. The process of sin, forgiveness, and redemption is an integral part of conservative Christian faith. Remember George W. Bush’s D.U.I.? Neither do Evangelical Christians—because he repented in a way they found authentic and sincere. But Trump has given zero indication that he’s sorry about his homewrecking ways. In fact, quite the contrary. The fact that at every stump speech, Trump boasts about a book wherein he boasts about sleeping with married women is—well, it’s the kind of thing that history suggests would give Iowa Republicans pause.
But, for whatever reason, Trump’s critics and questioners—Sasse exempted—have largely given him a pass on this. And many social conservatives are over it.
The fact that Trump-branded casinos have strip clubs is particularly troubling to some, including Penny Nance, who heads Concerned Women for America.

“I think respect for women is very important, and the idea that he profited from strippers and from exploiting women we find very disturbing,” she said.
In August of 2013, the struggling Trump Taj Mahal casino became the first casino in Atlantic City, N.J., to have an in-house strip club. Trump no longer operates that casino himself, but 2014 bankruptcy filings reported by The Wall Street Journal showed he held a 5 percent stake in the stock of the company that manages it, Trump Entertainment Resorts Inc.
“The seedy underworld of strip joints and sex trafficking and prostitution are often connected, and the idea that Donald profited from the exploitation of women directly is very discouraging to me,” said Nance. “It’s a serious issue. I’m not kidding.”
And Jeff Kubler, who heads the Oregon chapter of the Faith and Freedom Coalition, said Trump’s appearance on the March 1990 cover of Playboy—next to a model wearing only his tuxedo jacket—should cause him problems with Evangelical Christian voters.
“Obviously he wasn’t exhibiting,” Kubler said. “He was just on there as a businessman—he must have done an interview or something—but that he did such a thing—it’s something I wouldn’t have done.”
“There are a number of candidates who have really strong Christian testimonies, and I don’t think Donald Trump really has one,” he added.
There may be a reason Evangelicals aren’t up in arms about his appearance on the cover of a magazine famous for nude pics.
“I would hope that many of them wouldn’t know a thing like that, except secondhand,” said Colin Hanna, president of Let Freedom Ring USA.
“Why wouldn’t it come up in a debate, come up as a news item, and let him be called to task for it with 20 million people watching,” Hanna continued, of Trump’s infidelities. “It gets at the very matter of character, of sin, of forgiveness. A mature conservative Evangelical Christian should not hold confessed sin against someone, but unconfessed sin should be a problem—a theological problem. And unadmitted sin is sort of a step beyond unconfessed sin, isn’t it?”
Trump has even indicated that he thinks the fact that he cheated on his first wife, Ivanka, is fair game for his opponents. But so far, none have bitten. And that has some social conservatives—including John Stemberger, who heads the Florida Family Policy Council—irked.
“The great Bible says many many times, ‘Do not be deceived,’ over and over again, Old and New Testament,” Stemberger said. “And he’s deceiving us.”
