Charlottesville mayor calls for removal of statue at heart of protests

Charlottesville, Va., Mayor Mike Signer on Friday called for an emergency session of the Virginia General Assembly to approve legislation that would enable his city to remove a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.

The statue was a flashpoint for violent protests last weekend that featured neo-Nazis and members of the Ku Klux Klan. One woman died and at least 19 others were injured when police say one rally attendee drove into a crowd of counter-demonstrators.

Signer, in an op-ed for The Atlantic, said he had previously opposed calls for the statue's removal, but in the wake of last week's violence, said the meaning of the statue "has been changed forever."

"[I]t will never be possible again for the Lee statue to only tell the story of what happened here during the Civil War and the Jim Crow era," Signer wrote. "Its historical meaning now, and forevermore, will be of a magnet for terrorism."

The Charlottesville City Council previously voted in favor of removing and selling the Lee statue – a measure Signer opposed at the time. Instead, he sided with a commission his administration empaneled that recommended Confederate monuments across the city remain in place, but be put into proper historical context to explain how slavery and Jim Crow laws affected the South.

After the vote to remove the statue, opponents sued, saying the city did not have authority to remove the statue under state law, a case that is still being fought in court.

On Friday, Signer called on Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a Democrat, to convene an emergency session of the Legislature to approve a bill that would permit the city and others across Virginia to remove Confederate monuments from public spaces if they choose.

In the wake of the violence that led to the death of counter-protester Heather Heyer, 32, on Saturday, Signer said the Lee statue, which was the flashpoint that sparked protests that included hate groups like the Ku Klux Klan and Nazi sympathizers, needs to be removed.

"With the terrorist attack, these monuments were transformed from equestrian statues into lightning rods. We can, and we must, respond by denying the Nazis and the KKK and the so-called alt-right the twisted totem they seek," he wrote.

Infidel idiot Trump wants to defile dead muslims with pigs

THE PROPHET turns over in his grave IN DISBELIEF AT THE DEGenERATE U ASS OF A and their evil leader

and Pershing was an imperalist invader doing this to the brave patriot of flipland

Trump truly is an ignoramous

A sordid tale of Gen. John J. Pershing executing Muslim insurgents in the Philippines at the turn of the century is a favorite of President Trump.

“They were having terrorism problems, just like we do,” Trump told a throng of cheering supporters on the campaign trail in South Carolina in February 2016.

Pershing “caught 50 terrorists who did tremendous damage and killed many people. And he took the 50 terrorists, and he took 50 men and he dipped 50 bullets in pigs’ blood — you heard that, right? He took 50 bullets, and he dipped them in pigs’ blood. And he had his men load his rifles, and he lined up the 50 people, and they shot 49 of those people. And the 50th person, he said: You go back to your people, and you tell them what happened. And for 25 years, there wasn’t a problem.”

SJWs trying to erase Jewish history at the request of their Arab backers

It's not just Confederate history they're trying to erase.

70 years ago, in Flushing Meadows Park, the United Nation voted to recognize the State of Israel in the Jewish homeland. This week, the director of the Queens Museum, the very building the vote was held in, tore up a contract and cancelled an event reenacting the event at the behest of her Muslim buddies and their SJW allies.

>Israel event at Queens Museum cancelled following Palestinian pressure

>By Danielle Ziri

>August 16, 2017 06:30



> NEW YORK – The Queens Museum, which had agreed earlier this summer to host a reenactment of the UN’s 1947 vote on the partition of Palestine, scheduled for November 29, has informed the Israeli Mission to the UN that it will not do so after all.

>The event, initiated by UN Ambassador Danny Danon, was intended to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the historic vote in its original place: the main gallery of the museum, which hosted the UN General Assembly back then.

>Finding the original hall in which the Partition Plan was adopted was a key element of the organization of the event, Danon told The Jerusalem Post last month. Danon’s team planned to redesigned the hall to appear in its original state.

>According to the Israeli Mission, a museum official informed them by email in June that they had reserved the appropriate hall and were “looking forward to a wonderful and meaningful event in its natural setting.”

>Preparations for the event had begun, but as news outlets made the plans public, the same museum official begun expressing concerns about feedback received from “Palestinian friends of the museum.”

>After weeks of no communication with the Israeli Mission, President and Executive Director Laura Raicovich notified Danon this week that she was reversing the decision.

>In her note, Raicovich cited a board decision not to hold a “political event.”

>Following an investigation by Danon’s staff, it was found that Raicovich has an anti-Israel background: She is the editor of the book Assuming Boycott: Resistance, Agency and Cultural Production.

>In its online description of the book, the publisher states that “boycott and divestment are essential tools for activists around the globe.”

>Raicovich included an essay titled “Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions: Reasons to Support BDS,” which justifies and endorses the movement’s actions against Israel.

Death toll climbs to over 400 in Sierra Leone floods

"Heavy rains threaten other parts of the capital Freetown as number of dead rises to more than 400."

The death toll from devastating floods in Sierra Leone has climbed to more than 400 people with hundreds still missing in the stricken capital.

Mass burials held in Sierra Leone for mudslide victims

Burials and recovery efforts continued on Friday amid the threat of further disaster.

The Red Cross put the death toll at 409 after flooding and mudslides shook Freetown on Monday morning.

"Today we are counting more than 400 people dead," Elhadj As Sy, secretary-general of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent societies, saids in Geneva.

Pro-Trump Rally Set to Clash with Juggalo March in Washington, D.C. in September


On Sept. 16, the Mother of All Rallies will descend on Washington, D.C., bathing the nation’s capital in red “Make America Great Again” hats and the rumble of probably more than a few motorcycles. The event is organized by Trump supporters who, according the website they’ve set up, are hoping to “send a message to congress the media and the world.” It’s being billed as an “all day and night rally for American culture,” and you’re urged to attend if “you believe in the founding fathers idea of America. If you believe we are the greatest country to ever exist.”

Trump-voters are definitely outsiders in Washington — only 4 percent of the district voted for the current president. So when the “MAGA” crowd arrives at the National Mall at 11 a.m., they’re hoping to make themselves known. On Facebook, the event page for the rally already has over 7,000 followers, and almost 4,500 people have said they’re interested in attending. Hopeful attendees include a bleach-blonde Florida woman who wrote that she will help drive an RV for anybody “willing to take large groups of Trump supporters” and another woman urging parents to get their children to join “The Young Patriots” in leading the Pledge of Allegiance. From the buzz, the rally is shaping up to be a great time for Trump fans.

Unfortunately for the Trump supporters, they won’t be the only group in Washington that Saturday. In fact, they won’t even be the only group on the National Mall. In December, a website went online for the “Juggalo March” that will take place on the National Mall by the Lincoln Memorial. They even have a countdown clock on their website, tracking the minutes until they appear en masse at the same steps where Martin Luther King Jr. declared his dream.

Racism endorsed by Trump:he fails to call out supremacists in Charlottesville

A Nazi plowed through counter-protesters flinging bodies in the air, killing one person and injuring dozens.

“We are determined to take our country back. We are going to fulfil the promises of Donald Trump. That’s why we voted for Donald Trump,” said former KKK “imperial wizard” David Duke.

We can officially drop the pretence of equality after violent protests by white supremacists, “heritage” groups, neo-Nazis, KKK members and armed white terrorists slammed that charade this weekend.

Their deadly brand of racism was effectively endorsed by the United States president when he failed to call out supremacists, anti-Semites, xenophobes and homophobes and instead rebuked the “egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides.”

On many sides. Which sides would those be, Mr. President, when there were just two: white supremacy — and equality.

Donald Trump wants to “study it,” he said, “to see how such things can happen.” He might want to start with studying the “many sides” of injustice at play.

china attempting to build meltdown proof nuclear reactor

China has taken a significant step towards changing the economics of renewable power in the world, and is ahead of the Unites States (US) in the race for cleaner energy: It has announced the launch of a nuclear power plant that is apparently immune to meltdown. This is the Sanmen Nuclear Power Station.

The loss faced by South Carolina- based Santee Cooper and SCANA after abandoning the construction of two similar nuclear reactors in the US and the delay that followed turned out to be a gain for China.

Over the next two weeks, after the completion of fuel loading — the final step before the reactor starts operation, China will be the first country in the world to begin the operations of a unique power plant that sits facing the East China Sea, located in Sanmen county in Zhejiang province.

Fired bitch boy Scaramucci: Bannon's 'toleration' of white nationalism is 'inexcusable'

Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci hit at Steve Bannon for his controversial views a day after a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, descended into violence.

During ABC News’ livestream interview after "This Week," Scaramucci was asked if he believes Bannon is a white supremacist or white nationalist. Scaramucci said that he didn't know and hasn't directly asked Bannon about his views.

“I’ve never sat down with Steve Bannon and said, ‘Hey are you a white nationalist or a white supremacist?’ But I think the toleration of it by Steve Bannon is inexcusable,” Scaramucci said.

nigerian stolen oil money ending up in uk investments

The US Department of Justice launched a civil lawsuit last month to seize $144m in assets including an $82m superyacht, artwork and luxury properties, branding them the fruits of an alleged bribery scheme involving Diezani Alison-Madueke, the former oil minister who ran the state-owned Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) in the corruption-soaked regime of President Goodluck Jonathan.

Prosecutors allege that between 2011 and 2015, two Nigerian oil tycoons, Kola Aluko and Olajide Omokore, conspired with others “to obtain lucrative business opportunities in the Nigerian oil and gas sector in return for corruptly offering and giving millions of dollars’ worth of gifts and benefits” to Alison-Madueke. Aluko and Omokore are said to have “used a series of shell companies and layered financial transactions to conceal the nature, location, source, and/or ownership of the proceeds of the unlawful conduct”.

Working for ‘the Madam’

The civil complaint alleges how over three months in 2011 – while Aluko and Omokore were negotiating a $1.5bn oil deal with Alison-Madueke (that she subsequently awarded them) – the oil tycoons spent millions of pounds acquiring luxury property in and around London for the oil minister.

In January 2011 Omokore bought a £3.3m mansion in Gerrards Cross, Buckinghamshire, through Seychelles company Miranda International Ltd. Aluko took charge of refurbishments and was careful to do so discreetly; contractors on the site were only told they were working for “the Madam”.

Two months later, Aluko bought a £1.7m mews property in Chester Close North, a cul-de-sac by Regent’s Park, London, through BVI company Mortlake Investments Ltd, and again set out on a lavish refurbishment, installing an elevator and stone flooring (this property was later sold, but not before Aluko furnished it with exercise machines worth £11,000 from Harrods).

‘Fantastically corrupt’

Four days later, on 28 March 2011, Aluko bought a £2.8m flat in Harley House, a swanky Edwardian apartment block near Madame Tussauds, using another Seychelles company, Rosewood Investments Ltd. Again, the flat was decked out to the oil minister’s tastes; Aluko emailed her the plans. The following day, Aluko bought a fourth property for her, a £3.7m pad in Park View, an apartment block also by Regent’s Park, through Colinwood Ltd, yet another Seychelles company. The property was part-financed with a loan from the UK branch of First Bank Nigeria and, again, was lavishly refurbished. All her properties were frozen last September by the Crown Prosecution Service under the Proceeds of Crime Act.

Bannon sez Nazees iz idiots,Trump sez,"I aint no idiot,YOR FIRED!"

President Donald Trump's chief strategist Steve Bannon has been fired, multiple White House officials told CNN on Friday.

Sources told CNN that Bannon's ouster had been in the works for two weeks and a source said that while Bannon was given the option to resign, he was ultimately forced out. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed Bannon's departure, but claimed the decision for him to leave was mutual.

"White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and Steve Bannon have mutually agreed today would be Steve's last day. We are grateful for his service and wish him the best," Sanders said in a statement.

The President has privately stewed over Bannon in recent days, including Thursday night from his golf course in New Jersey. He was furious with his chief strategist after he was quoted in an interview with the American Prospect contradicting Trump on North Korea and asserting that Bannon was able to make personnel changes at the State Department.

Bannon's exit comes just seven months after Trump took office and three weeks after retired Gen. Kelly took over as chief of staff, looking to instill order in a chaotic White House beset by internal divisions, staff infighting and a storm of controversies.

Bannon's exit meant one of the White House's most controversial staffers, the man generally perceived as the driving force behind Trump's "nationalist" ideology, would no longer be at the center of the Trump universe.

gambling addict takes frustrations out on evil fixed odds machines

These pictures show the trail of destruction caused by a gambling addict who went on a rampage in betting shops across Liverpool.

Eric Baptista caused £36,000 in damage by taking a hammer to betting terminals, TV screens and gambling machines, at seven William Hill shops in south Liverpool.

The 29-year-old, of Seacole Close, Toxteth , also smeared screens in the shops with anti-vandal paint, using his bare hands and had some of his attacks filmed on a mobile phone.

All the offences happened in May this year and included branches in Aigburth, Toxteth and Wavertree.

When arrested Baptista pleaded guilty, claiming he had done it because he was “gambling addict”.

Man found dead on the beach after being found ‘fit for work’

A middle-aged man died after going into the sea off Horden, Co Durham, shortly after being told his sickness benefits were being withdrawn.

But County Durham and Darlington assistant coroner Crispin Oliver said it was impossible to say whether David Metcalf had meant to enter the water.

The 54-year-old was found on the beach at Grants Houses on Tuesday 3 January, four days after being visited by police and a mental health triage practitioner at his home in Arch Court, Hartlepool.

An inquest at Crook coroner’s court heard a post-mortem showed signs of drowning and hypothermia.

Mr Oliver said Mr Metcalf had been “a somewhat solitary individual”, with no family and apparently just one acquaintance, a local garage owner who had alerted police after Mr Metcalf gave him his car keys and bank documents, saying he would not need them any more.

USA war criminals pay for torture of maimed arabs

CIA 'torture psychologists' avoid trial with secret settlement

WASHINGTON: Two psychologists who helped design the CIA’s post-9/11 interrogation program settled a lawsuit Thursday by detainees alleging they were illegally tortured.

The secret settlement in the suit, brought on behalf of two living ex-detainees and one who died of hypothermia after brutal questioning in US custody, avoided what would have been the first public trial of the Central Intelligence Agency’s use of torture on suspected Al-Qaeda members.

But it also allowed the two psychologists who supplied the CIA with “coercive” interrogation techniques, James Mitchell and Bruce Jessen, to maintain that they personally had nothing to do with the use of waterboarding, extreme stress positions and beatings on detainees.

“Neither Dr. Mitchell nor I knew about, condoned, participated in, or sanctioned the unauthorized actions that formed the basis for this lawsuit,” Jessen said in a mutually agreed statement attached to the settlement.

“We served our country at a time when freedom and safety hung in the balance.”

The American Civil Liberties Union brought the suit in 2015 against Mitchell and Jessen, who were recruited by the CIA in 2002 to design and help conduct interrogations of war-on-terror suspects captured in Afghanistan and elsewhere.

The two were paid around $80 million for their work, which included helping interrogate Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the mastermind of the September 11, 2001 attacks by Al-Qaeda, and Abu Zubaydah, another top Qaeda suspect.

The suit accused Mitchell and Jessen of responsibility for the CIA’s use of torture methods on the three detainees, Tanzanian Suleiman Abdullah Salim, Libyan Mohamed Ahmed Ben Soud, and Gul Rahman of Afghanistan.

Rahman died of hypothermia in a CIA prison cell in November 2002, after what the ACLU says were two weeks of brutal torture.

The ACLU had sought to pin responsibility in part on the psychologists, as well as gain a significant financial award for the men and Rahman’s family. The trial had been set to begin on September 5.

The ACLU and lawyers for the defendants declined to give any details of the settlement, including whether any money would be paid as part of it.

In the settlement statement, the plaintiffs stood by their allegations that Mitchell and Jansen had responsibility for the extreme interrogation methods used on them.

However, they said afterward, “We brought this case seeking accountability and to help ensure that no one else has to endure torture and abuse, and we feel that we have achieved our goals.”

“We were able to tell the world about horrific torture, the CIA had to release secret records, and the psychologists and high-level CIA officials were forced to answer our lawyers’ questions,” they said.

James Smith, the main lawyer for Mitchell and Jensen, said the treatment of the three, while regrettable, was not the fault of his clients.

“If this case had gone forward, the facts would have borne out that while the plaintiffs suffered mistreatment by some of their captors, none of that mistreatment was conducted, condoned or caused by Drs. Mitchell and Jessen,” Smith said. –AFP

‘My life is over’: 21-year-old Charlottesville marcher whines over ‘outing’ by anti-fascist group

Kuhn says he’s not a racist, but that he traveled the nearly 500 miles from Honeoye Falls to Charlottesville to protest the removal of a Confederate monument to Gen. Robert E. Lee from Charlottesville’s Emancipation Park.

“It’s a piece of history, and I thought that it should remain,” Kuhn said. “It’s important to me that we preserve American history no matter how ugly the past is it’s associated with.”

“I’m not a neo-Nazi,” he insisted. “I don’t belong to a German workers’ party from 1933. I’m a moderate Republican.”

Other white supremacist marchers from Saturday’s deadly melee have made similar claims, like Washington State University College Republicans president James Allsup, who said, “They have no proof that I’m a racist” when confronted with photos of himself at the white supremacist rally.

“People have a right to know if their neighbor is a violent neo-Nazi just as much as they would if their neighbor was a violent sex offender,” said Peter Berkman of Eastside Antifascists. “I think it’s important that people know the dangers the community faces and we think people having that information is important for them to protect themselves.”

Berkman said that his group has been tracking Kuhn’s participation in online neo-Nazi groups over a period of time, including the Daily Stormer, which has migrated to a Russian domain after a series of U.S. web hosting companies refused to provide it service.

Kuhn now says his life and reputation are ruined in his community and that he and his family are receiving threats.

“I can’t live in this community anymore. I’m in the process of figuring out what I’m going to do,” he complained. “I’m 21 years old and now my life is over in this area.”

“These folks don’t just get to be weekend neo-Nazis and then come home and live comfortably without having people around them knowing who they are,” said Berkman. “It’s important that people know who he is and that this person is in their community and to proceed with caution.”

No Joke: Legislation Proposes One Year Jail Penalty for Those Who Call Trannys The 'Wrong' Pronoun

A new bill being considered by the California State Senate would punish people who “willfully and repeatedly” refuse “to use a transgender resident’s preferred name or pronouns” in a public health, retirement or housing institution.

The bill, SB 219, was proposed by State Sen. Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco). It includes several other provisions that require a health facility, for example, to honor the gender identity of a patient, meaning that the patient must be admitted to a room that comports with his or her chosen gender; allowed to use whatever bathroom he or she wants to use; and wear whatever clothing or cosmetics he or she decides to wear. It has gone through several amendments.

CBN News notes: “Fines for repeat offenders could be as high as $1,000 and a jail term of up to a year.”

CBN also reports the testimony of the California Family Council’s Greg Burt:

How can you believe in free speech, but think the government can compel people to use certain pronouns when talking to others? … This is not tolerance. This is not love. This is not mutual respect. True tolerance tolerates people with different views. We need to treat each other with respect, but respect is a two-way street. It is not respectful to threaten people with punishment for having sincerely held beliefs that differ from your own.

California Democrats have also taken up the transgender cause as part of their “resistance” to President Donald Trump. In February, when the Trump administration reversed an Obama administration directive on transgender bathrooms in public schools, thus allowing states and local communities to set their own policies again, California protested vigorously in favor of the idea that the federal government should impose a uniform standard everywhere as a matter of civil rights.

Reporter who broke the story of the Chicago Dyke March rounding up Jews is demoted for doing her job

The message is clear: Tell the truth about SJW fuckery, or disagree with their Muslim masters, and you'll lose your job.

>Award-Winning Journalist Who Broke Story of Jewish Women Barred From Chicago ‘Dyke March’ Removed From Reporting Duties



>Gretchen Rachel Hammond — whose June 24 story caused a national storm after she detailed how three women flying Jewish Pride flags embossed with the Star of David were instructed to leave the gathering by organizers from the Dyke March Collective — confirmed to The Algemeiner on Monday that while she was still employed by the paper, she was not presently engaged in its reporting and writing operations.

>“At this time, I have not been fired from Windy City Times, but I have been transferred to working full time for the sales department,” Hammond explained in an emailed statement. “The reasoning is an internal matter and I have been instructed not to comment about it even to close friends. Given my present situation, I must comply with this instruction.”

>The Algemeiner approached Hammond after a reader pointed out that her role at the Windy City Times had been abruptly switched. The reader said in an email that Hammond’s reporting had been blamed by the march organizers for the ensuing controversy, and went on to express “disgust” and “outrage” that Hammond had “been bullied and attacked” by individuals associated with the march, sometimes in an “antisemitic” manner.

>In her initial report on the march, Hammond quoted a member of the Dyke March Collective explaining that the Jewish women had been removed because their flags “made people feel unsafe” and that the event was “anti-Zionist” and “pro-Palestinian.” On June 28 — in her last article for the paper — Hammond conducted an extensive interview with Dyke March Collective activist Alexis Martinez, who was given ample space to present her argument that the march was “anti-Zionist,” and not “antisemitic.”

>During the interview, Martinez accused the Windy City Times of having “failed in its journalistic mission” for allegedly not contacting her before the paper revealed the removal of the Jewish women marchers.

being colorblind is just not good enough for black people

Author and speaker Doyin Richards — a black dad raising two daughters — says he often sees well-meaning parents refer to themselves as "colorblind" parents, who teach their children there is "only one race — the human race."

Richards is quick to set those parents straight.

"I'm not going to mince words — raising your kids to be colorblind is just straight dumb," Richards told TODAY Parents. "And, not only is it dumb — it's dangerous. By doing the whole, 'We're the same,' thing, you're dismissing what a black kid or any person of color deals with."

Richards, who will release a children's book this September titled, "What's the Difference? Being Different is Amazing," says kids cannot grow or learn as people if they believe that everyone is the same. And, especially in the wake of the recent white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, the California dad says the responsibility to educate kids about differences falls on today's parents, even when they are unsure of what to say.

"Teach kids to be conscious of race," said Richards. "Teach them to be like, 'This black kid or this Mexican kid has had a different life experience than I have as a white kid, and that's what makes it great. I see their differences and I embrace those differences and want to learn to be a better and more productive citizen going forward.'"

Neo Nazis infilitrate My Little Pony online communities

Think My Little Pony and white supremacy don’t mix? Think again. ¶Though bronies, the adult male fans of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, have geeked out about pegasi, dragons, and Fluttershy for years, there’s a new force infiltrating the fandom. Among these bronies, there’s talk of “pony nationalism,” avatars of horses in KKK gear, and posts of ponies with swastikas decorating their rumps.

That’s right: Political division has struck Equestria. In particular, a group calling themelves alt-bronies—as in alt-right bronies—have driven a wedge between themselves and the rest of the fandom, who have been calling for the alt-bronies to leave politics out of their ponies.

“There are people who take it very seriously,” alt-brony @GWSSDelta told me over Twitter DM about his fellow alt-bronies. “They see MLP as a vehicle for a European identity and ideal that resonates with such a huge number of young white men.”

Felony charge for Based Stickman


A man involved in a March melee in Berkeley between supporters of President Trump and counterprotesters has been charged with a felony count of possessing a lead pipe.

The Alameda County district attorney filed the charge Wednesday against Kyle Chapman, 41, of Daly City.

Chapman, a staunch supporter of Trump, was arrested after the March 4 incident for allegedly beating people with a stick. Videos of the incident surfaced online, making Chapman a cause celebre for the pro-Trump movement. He has since referred to himself on social media as Based Stickman.

Efforts to reach Chapman were unsuccessful. Chapman was one of 10 people arrested in the incident and among a few who have been charged so far.

The videos on YouTube show him holding a wooden shield, wearing a gas mask and hitting counterprotesters on the head with a stick as fights broke out in Civic Center Park.

The charge carries a maximum sentence of one year in county jail.

white teacher grooms black stud to impregenate her

A teacher gave birth to her pupil's child after allegedly grooming him from the age of 14.

Laura Lynn Cross, 36, is said to have had a three-year sexual relationship with the boy and posed as his "mentor" so he could move into her home.

The pupil's father said he raised concerns with authorities about the pair being inappropriately close in 2012, but no action was taken.

Ms Cross resigned from her post as an English teacher at Buchtel High School in Akron,Ohio, in January 2015.

She is alleged to have begun grooming the pupil, who cannot be named, while he was in the school's eighth grade.

he initially invited him to go swimming in her pool before he later began staying the night.

Ms Cross later convinced the pupil's mother to let her son move into her house in a court-approved "partial parental custody" arrangement.

The teacher said it would allow her to "mentor" her the boy.

She was arrested earlier this month after police learned she had given birth to the boy's baby in 2015.

The teenager's father contacted officers after being tipped off about the child. But he criticised the school and Tallmadge Police for failing to take action earlier.

"It was a straight failure from the system. From the school and the police, definitely," he told local TV channel News 5 Cleveland.

"Everbody I talked to I was frank with that my son was having sexual relationships with this woman, with a teacher.

"She had a hold on my son and [the police] told me he's not co-operating with us so we no can do nothing with it."

He added: "She's a schoolteacher. To get aroused by a child basically you have to be a sick individual."

Ms Cross has been charged with three counts of sexual abuse alleged to have taken place between August 1, 2013, and September 6, 2016.

She is being held in the Summit County Jail on a $100,000.

Jews dig up grandma to remind you to forgive them for current_year

Our relatives survived the Holocaust. How do we tell kids about Charlottesville?

Parents of every political persuasion and faith watched the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, last weekend with the same thought: How will I explain this to my children?

But for American Jewish parents — especially those whose relatives survived the Holocaust in Europe first-hand — the Nazi symbols and rhetoric of those marching in the Charlottesville rally were particularly chilling.

Stacey Steinberg unintentionally watched news coverage of Charlottesville with her 11-year-old beside her. "I wasn't planning on watching it at that moment, but the news was on in the background while we were doing other things," Steinberg, a professor at the University of Florida Levin College of Law in Gainesville, Florida, told TODAY Parents. "I didn't know whether to change the channel or call his attention to the news. I chose the latter. And then we spent a lot of time talking about what we saw."

Afterwards, Steinberg picked up the phone and called her 98-year-old grandfather, Oscar Deutsch, who was a teenager when the Nazis came to power and survived the Holocaust along with her grandmother, Gisella Deutsch.

Dear Jews,


You wanna know what's more important than throwin' away money at a strip club? Credit

Fake Climate Change Scientists Plan To Block The Sun And Freeze The Planet

Scientists are sucking carbon dioxide from the air with giant fans and preparing to release chemicals from a balloon to dim the sun's rays as part of a climate engineering push to cool the planet.

In the countryside near Zurich, Swiss company Climeworks began to suck greenhouse gases from thin air in May with giant fans and filters in a $23 million project that it calls the world's first "commercial carbon dioxide capture plant".

Worldwide, "direct air capture" research by a handful of companies such as Climeworks has gained tens of millions of dollars in recent years from sources including governments, Microsoft founder Bill Gates and the European Space Agency.

If buried underground, vast amounts of greenhouse gases extracted from the air would help reduce global temperatures, a radical step beyond cuts in emissions that are the main focus of the Paris Agreement.

Trump say nazis in Charlottesville had somee good folk,Coop calls him out

Democrats are throwing the kitchen sink at President Trump to protest his ongoing equivocation about a white nationalist rally and put increasing pressure on Republican leaders to denounce their party’s standard-bearer in the White House.

No tool has been overlooked. The Democrats have sent letters, called for hearings, launched campaign ads and promised resolutions of censure and impeachment designed to highlight the firestorm set off by the deadly protests in Charlottesville, Va. — and the president’s equivocal response.

The episode has forced congressional Republicans into a defensive crouch, caught between condemning the racist groups which organized the Charlottesville protest while taking pains not to rebuke the president, whose support they need to move the ambitious legislative agenda they’ve planned to finish before the year’s end.

His exit follows a review of his position by White House Chief of Staff John Kelly.

Mr Bannon, a right-wing nationalist and former head of Breitbart.com, helped shape the "America First" message of Mr Trump's election campaign.

But critics had accused the 63-year-old of harbouring anti-Semitic and white supremacist views.

Mr Bannon is known to have competed for influence in the West Wing against more moderate factions, including members of the Trump family.

Cunt born without a cunt wants yor money to get a cunt

he family of a woman born without a vagina has launched a crowd-funding campaign for surgery that would allow her to have sex with her boyfriend.

Kaylee Moats, from Arizona, suffers from Mayer Rokitansky Küster Hauser syndrome (MRKH) — which means she has no cervix, uterus or vaginal opening.

Her boyfriend of four months, Robbie Limmer, says he doesn’t care about the lack of sex in their relationship but has been putting aside $50 a month to help fund surgery that would create a vagina.

Ms. Moats needs $15,000 for the surgery and the crowd-funding page set up by her sister, Amanda, has already raised $5,720 in two months.

“I met Robbie in my senior year of college when I was working at the front desk. He thought I was cute so he came up to me and we started talking,” she told the Daily Mail. “It took about a month for me to tell him that I have MRKH. He was confused at first but supportive and said that it doesn’t change how he see’s me.

“He doesn’t really focus on the sexual side of our relationship because we can’t do anything since I don’t have a vaginal opening,” she said. “But I am looking forward to having a sexual relationship. I’m not sure If I want to wait until marriage but I think having that option there is a lot more comforting.

“I’m a bit nervous to have sex for the first time after surgery because I’m not sure if something is going to go wrong down there or if it’s going to hurt,” she said.

Ms. Moats says her vagina looks exactly how it should — except her vaginal opening is instead replaced by a little dimpled skin where the hole should be.

She says she ovulates like other women but it gets dissolved into her ovaries.

did'n do nuffin, peaceful black man minding his own business is bullied by old white guys

Charlottesville: Man pictured using homemade flame thrower on white supremacists speaks out

Corey Long fought off 'Nazis who took over my town' after extremists turned violent against peaceful protest.

A care worker who fought off white supremacist attackers in Charlottesville with an improvised flame thrower said he had set out for a peaceful protest against “Nazis who took over my town”.

Corey Long had joined the hundreds of demonstrators in the Virginia city who turned out to heckle at radicals including Ku Klux Klan members who were marching in an ultra right-wing rally.

But the 23-year-old said the scene quickly turned violent when one of the thousands of extremists who had taken to the streets fired a gun next to his feet - while police nearby failed to react.

Another extremist later lunged at Mr Long with a confederate flag and he fought back with a spray can he said he found on the ground, putting a lighter to the nozzle and turning it into a weapon.

The image of the counter-protester firing flames at the radical marchers went viral and is said to capture the horror of the protests that sparked clashes and left one woman dead.

Mr Long said: “I went out to voice my opinion. To have my freedom of speech. Just like the racist Nazis who took over my town.

“At first it was peaceful protest. Until someone pointed a gun at my head. Then the same person pointed it at my foot and shot the ground.”

But he claimed the police stood by and did nothing when the right-wing marchers turned violent against counter-protestors in clashes that left 19 injured.

“The cops were protecting the Nazis, instead of the people who live in the city,” Mr Long said. “The cops basically just stood in their line and looked at the chaos. The cops were not protecting the people of Charlottesville. They were protecting the outsiders.”

Mr Long said he and his friend Deandre Harris were forced to flee when scores of the right-wing protesters charged at them, and they ran for cover in a car parking area. “The white supremacists told us to ‘die nigger’ in the garage.”

He said he fought off his attackers with a stick and fled again but extremists continued to pursue the pair. “The Nazis tried to force their way into the stairway that we were hiding in. The fact was that they (photographers) just stood around recording everything. The fact that they didn’t help us . . . It was outrageous.”

Mr Harris later said he suffered serious injuries to his head after white supremacists beat him with metal poles.

The violence erupted after thousands of extremists marched on the streets of Charlottesville on Saturday before demonstrators turned on counter protestors and lashed amid violent clashes.

Accused of Cannibalism by His 'Partner', Gay Stripper Stabs Out Homo's Eyes and Fills His Throat

KEY WEST, Fla. - A male stripper from Tampa was arrested Monday in Key West after he stabbed his partner in both eyes and shoved a piece of wood down his throat, police said.

Justin Calhoun, 24, faces a charge of attempted murder in connection with the violent domestic incident.

According to a Key West police report, Calhoun admitted to attacking Mark Brann so severely that the victim was flown to a Miami hospital to be treated for his injuries.

Calhoun told police that he and Brann had a sexual relationship and that he often stayed at Brann's home in Key West. Calhoun said he and Brann got into an argument because he believed that Brann was a "cannibal," Detective Jeff Dean wrote in the police report.

Brann got angry about Calhoun's accusation and picked up a gun that was on a bed where they were laying, Calhoun told police. Calhoun said the gun fired as he fought with Brann for the gun, but no one was shot, Dean wrote.

Calhoun said he took the gun and planned to shoot Brann, but the gun jammed, the report said. Instead, Calhoun said, he grabbed a pen and stabbed Brann in both eyes, the report said.

Then Calhoun stuffed a piece of wood from a broken dresser into Brann's mouth "to silence him," he told police, the report said.

Calhoun "stomped" on the piece of wood to lodge it further into Brann's mouth, grabbed a drawer from the broken dresser and used it to hit Brann, the report said. Calhoun said he locked the door to keep Brann's roommate from entering, grabbed his money and backpack and jumped out of the bedroom window while naked, the report said.

He was caught several hours later after evading police by jumping fences and climbing on rooftops, Calhoun told police, the report said.

Calhoun admitted that his actions went beyond self-defense, Dean wrote in the report.

Brann was flown to Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center in Miami, where he was listed in critical condition.

Calhoun's occupation is listed as a "stripper in Tampa" on the Monroe County Sheriff's Office jail website. He remained in jail Tuesday morning without bond.

WikiLeaks Turned Down Leaks on Russian Government During U.S. Presidential Campaign

In the summer of 2016, as WikiLeaks was publishing documents from Democratic operatives allegedly obtained by Kremlin-directed hackers, Julian Assange turned down a large cache of documents related to the Russian government, according to chat messages and a source who provided the records.

WikiLeaks declined to publish a wide-ranging trove of documents — at least 68 gigabytes of data — that came from inside the Russian Interior Ministry, according to partial chat logs reviewed by Foreign Policy.

The logs, which were provided to FP, only included WikiLeaks’s side of the conversation.

“As far as we recall these are already public,” WikiLeaks wrote at the time.

“WikiLeaks rejects all submissions that it cannot verify. WikiLeaks rejects submissions that have already been published elsewhere or which are likely to be considered insignificant. WikiLeaks has never rejected a submission due to its country of origin,” the organization wrote in a Twitter direct message when contacted by FP about the Russian cache.

(The account is widely believed to be operated solely by Assange, the group’s founder, but in a Twitter message to FP, the organization said it is maintained by “staff.”)

In 2014, the BBC and other news outlets reported on the cache, which revealed details about Russian military and intelligence involvement in Ukraine. However, the information from that hack was less than half the data that later became available in 2016, when Assange turned it down.

That's what happens when you insult the white race with a swastika rather than to unify it like hitler did with La Virgen de Guadalupe, Orale buey… this race traitor paid the price and he deserved it. I hope his family starves, I want to see her little daughter be forced by hunger to go out into the street and open her legs to recieve Jamal Thundercock's superior semen for the sake of a dollar or two. I want the wife to fuck and get impregnated by her daughter's bf while the husband is out looking for a job like a fool.

If you commit treason against the white race like COLE WHITE, you deserve your family to pay the price! The white race will not tolerate race treason under any circumstances.

NATO Calls For Help to Prepare for War in Big Cities

NATO Calls For Help to Prepare for War in Big Cities

NATO has admitted it is unprepared for waging wars in big cities and is asking outside contractors to pitch concepts on military operations in urban areas


(VERO BEACH, FL) The request, titled ‘Development of NATO Military Operations in Urban Environment Concept’, cites UN estimates which say that by 2035 the world’s population will reach 8.7 billion people, with most living in urban areas. “The world as a whole passed the 50-percent urban mark seven years ago,” says the unclassified document published on FedBizOpps, a website where US federal contracts can be viewed. “Studies, based upon global demographic trends, suggest that an increasing percentage of armed conflicts will likely be fought in urban surroundings.” Some 5 billion people currently live in cities, and 1.4 million people worldwide migrate to cities each week, the file notes, adding that the bloc is not ready to wage hostilities in dense, overcrowded communities.

NATO is not sufficiently organized, trained, or equipped to deploy troops “across the maritime, cyberspace, land, air, space dimensions/domains” to create “desired effects in an emergent complex, urban littoral system possessing a dense, interconnected population,” the bloc says. The document, which often reverts to opaque formal language, does not clarify what the “desired effects” would look like for an adversary, but sheds some light on the requirements the concept must meet. “The intent now is to develop an overarching NATO Concept to increase the situational awareness, explore the potential threats to military and civilian personnel … and to assess the potential impacts of autonomy on current operational concepts,” it explains. NATO expects to have the first draft of the concept by the end of 2017, verifying it during “an experiment type doctrine.”US-based Supreme Headquarters Allied Command Transformation (HQ SACT) will oversee the whole project.

The random Charlottesville observer who was interviewed by MSNBC and liberal outlets turns out to be a deep state shill with links to George Soros & John Podesta

It looks like the State Department was involved in Charlottesville rioting and is trying to cover it up.

But after Deep State got caught they are trying to erase this guy from their records.

Brennan Gilmore tweeted out a video of the horrific car attack on Saturday by white supremacist James Alex Fields.

Gilmore’s tweet went viral and he was interviewed by MSNBC and other liberal outlets.

The New York Times included Gilmore’s comments in their report on the attack.

The New York Times later removed the quote.

The State Department is very familiar with Brennan Gilmore. He was involved in the Kony 2012 operation.

The State Department later removed any reference of Brennan. Why would the State Department react in such a way?

Why would the State Department scrub that?

Brennan Gilmore was also Chief of Staff for liberal Rep. Tom Perrielo.

Tom Perrielo was given $385,000 from far left donor George Soros and was endorsed by John Podesta

This weekend Brennan Gilmore happened to be in Charlottesville with the rioters. The media knows exactly who he is yet played it off like a casual observer.

This is how the Deep State is working with the liberal media to shape narrative and fool the American people.

Swiss hotel's signs for Jews spark row and Israeli complaint

Israel has expressed anger to the Swiss government over a hotel's sign that told Jewish guests to shower before using the swimming pool.

The sign in English, at Apartmenthaus Paradies in the mountain resort of Arosa, triggered much criticism.

Another sign told Jewish guests to use a refrigerator only at certain times.

Israel's deputy foreign minister called it "an anti-Semitic act of the worst and ugliest kind". Reports say the hotel has now removed the signs.

A photo of the shower sign was tweeted, after an Orthodox Jewish guest spoke about it on Israel's Channel 2 TV.

Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely said she had discussed the "anti-Semitic" case with Israel's ambassador to Switzerland, who told her the signs had now been removed. However, she said those responsible should be punished, as a deterrent.

Correspondents say the instruction to Jewish guests to have a shower touches raw nerves about the Holocaust, because Nazi death camp guards sent Jews to "showers" that were actually gas chambers.

The sign in the hotel kitchen said: "To our Jewish guests: You are allowed to approach the fridge between the hours: 10.00-11.00 in the morning and 16.30-17.30 in the evening. I hope you understand that our team does not like to be disturbed every time."

Reports say the hotel often has guests from Israel, some of whom are Orthodox Jews.

The hotel management was quoted as saying there was "no anti-Semitic intent" and "we have no problem with Jewish guests at the hotel".

Ruth Thomann, responsible for the shower sign, said her choice of words had been a mistake.

She said some Jewish guests had gone swimming with clothes, such as T-shirts, on and had not showered first.

As for the fridge, she explained, Jewish guests - but not other guests - had been allowed to use it to store kosher food.

Arosa is in Switzerland's eastern Graubünden region.

Socialist Corporate Welfare Wreckage: Solar, Wind Industries Dying As Subsidies Dry Up

See if you can work out what these recent stories from around the world have in common:

This one (from PV Tech): https://archive.fo/q0Qxd

Up to 100 solar PV firms in Japan could face bankruptcy this year, with more than double the number of firms going bust in the first half of this year than the same period in 2016.

While the market overall has rapidly expanded from the launch of the feed-in tariff (FiT) in July 2012, Teikoku Databank acknowledged that there has been a slowdown in deployment in the past couple of years as the government successively made cuts of 10% or more on an annual basis to the premium prices paid for solar energy fed into the grid.

Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy officials told employees of a wind turbine manufacturing plant in Tillsonburg, Ontario the plant would shut down by 2018.

The company blamed changes in the global wind market, including competition and cost pressures, for the closure.

CBC noted that Siemens received a $673 million contract with the Ontario government for 140 wind turbines in 2014, though the next year Ontario Energy Minister Glenn Thibeault cancelled future renewable energy contracts to lower electricity costs, with the province subsequently announcing it would not need more wind turbines for at least another decade.

And this one (from Motor1 News): https://archive.fo/1dgQ8

Following Hong Kong’s decision to reduce incentives for electric vehicles, sales of Tesla vehicles in the country plummeted. The local government slashed a tax break for electric vehicles on April 1, which resulted in no Model S or Model X deliveries during the whole month. Data from Hong Kong's Transportation Department also reveals only five privately owned electric vehicles were sold in May.

While this collapse might seem like an insignificant local phenomenon, it actually affects the global sales of the company. During Q1, Tesla registered record sales of more than 25,000 units globally, but in the next three months deliveries fell to just over 22,000 as a result of Hong Kong’s slump. Also, the collapse reveals once again how sensitive the automaker’s performance can be to government incentive programs.

Yes. That’s right. Slowly, like a leech starved of blood, the renewable energy industry is withering away and dying. It can only survive through government enforced subsidies or bribe-incentives. Once those dry up, so does its trade.

Without taxpayer handouts (corporate welfare), these industries are insolvent.

Joda: In a bid to prevent human-elephant conflict, a unique initiative of beehive fencing has been implemented at Sargitolia village at Joda in Odisha’s mining-rich Keonjhar district.

Joda block being an elephant prone area, cases of human-elephant conflict is common. Deforestation, degradation and fragmentation of their natural habitat are the result of rise in human-elephant conflicts. This in turn has landed the Asian elephant a secured position on the list of endangered species. Incidents such as damage and destruction of property, raiding of farmers’ crops and incidents involving injuries and sometimes death of people or elephants have become more frequent.

Basis the research on ‘save elephants’ by a foreign university, it was observed that elephants naturally avoid bees so as to avoid the risk of bees to enter into their trunks. Beehive fencing concept was the outcome of this research.

The design of beehive fencing incorporates locally constructed beehives, which are strung intermittently between wooden poles to compose a primitive fence. When elephants bump into the fence and disturb the associated hives, it forces the bees to come out and sound around elephants. As a result, the elephants flee from that area.

The project has been implemented on a pilot basis at Sargitolia village, where a hamlet of the village has been fenced with beehives. This village is very frequently affected by elephants, causing damage to house and property. This project is a win-win solution for the farmers as they can protect their houses and crops without any conflict. Moreover the villagers have been imparted training on extraction of honey from these beehives which has provided a source of income to them by selling honey.

Salmi Munda, one of the beneficiaries of the project from Sargitolia village said: “I am well aware of the benefits of the project and also creating awareness among our villagers. Since the implementation of the project, no elephant has entered our village and we are hoping that the project will protect us from elephant attacks in future.”

Speaking about the implementation of the project, Pankaj Satija, General Manager (Ore Mines & Quarries), Tata Steel said: “By using beehives as a deterrent strategy, the bees are not only helping to create harmony in a situation of conflict but also improving the biodiversity and helping us create a better world for all forms of life. This new technique is a unique step which will help in deterring elephants for entering the field and also will help in improving pollination for agriculture and other flora.”

Notably, Tata Steel’s Ore Mines and Quarries (OMQ) Division has initiated the project of beehive fencing.

Rustler steals 40,000 bees in Britain's biggest hive heist in years


An experienced beekeeper is suspected of stealing 40,000 bees from Anglesey in one of Britain’s biggest bee rustling cases in years.

Only someone with a bee suit and veil could have pulled off the heist on Paul Williams’s hive in Rhydwyn “without getting stung to smithereens”, police said.

The miserably rainy summer could have ruined the thief’s own honey production and driven them to carry out the theft, one expert has suggested.

Poor weather, combined with the increased popularity of beekeeping, has also pushed up the price of a “nucleus” – a set of wooden frames plus a family of bees and a queen – from £50 to at least £200, according to Diane Roberts of the British Beekeepers Association.

Bees do not like rain, she said. “When it is rainy the bees don’t fly every day, or they can only go out for a couple of hours when there is a break between showers.

Why You Shouldn’t Try To Escape America To Avoid the Coming Collapse

Why You Shouldn’t Try To Escape America To Avoid the Coming Collapse

BE PREPARED! >>>/truthexpo/3




With the signs of economic collapse, political turmoil and social chaos becoming more apparent to almost everyone, many people are asking, “Should I leave my home country” and try to escape to some other nation?

As someone who has lived in Taiwan and Ecuador — and traveled throughout much of the world — my answer is now “no.” You can’t escape the global chaos that’s coming, and it’s far more important to live in a place where you fit in and aren’t considered the “foreigner.”

This is different from what I believed a decade ago. What I’ve realized since then is that the globalist agenda knows no bounds and has infiltrated every nation on the planet. You’re far better off, in my view, to stay in a place where you have an infrastructure of social contacts and where you don’t stick out as the foreigner.

Cities will become death traps

It’s also important to get out of the cities, which I’ve called “death traps.” The cities will be the front lines of social chaos once the government food stamp program (SNAP) is unable to provide free food for almost 50 million people. Some cities will likely be abandoned by law enforcement and allowed to descend into chaos. These cities may include Baltimore, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, St. Louis, Miami and Detroit.

You are far safer in rural California (or rural Oregon, rural Idaho, rural Kentucky or rural Ohio) than in any foreign country where you are easily recognizable as the foreigner, in my opinion.

After living in many places around the world, I’ve chosen Texas as my country. In Texas, I can grow food, own some land, defend myself with firearms, pay lower taxes, run a business with relatively little government interference and afford the cost of living. If you’re considering Texas, my only warning is don’t come to Texas unless you believe in liberty. Big Government socialists are not welcome in Texas, so if that’s your political belief system, please stay in Collapsifornia. If you don’t own guns and gold, in other words, you probably won’t fit in. If you hate God, America, the Constitution and the Founding Fathers, you aren’t compatible with Texas culture anyway.

Report: ‘Unite the Right’ Organizer Jason Kessler Was Occupy-Movement Obama Supporter 8 Mos Ago

‘Unite the Right’ organizer Jason Kessler was reportedly an Obama supporter involved in the Occupy movement as recently as November 2016, before establishing his white supremacist group “Unity & Security for America” in January, 2017.

Per the Southern Poverty Law Center:

Rumors abound on white nationalist forums that Kessler’s ideological pedigree before 2016 was less than pure and seem to point to involvement in the Occupy movement and past support for President Obama.

At one recent speech in favor of Charlottesville’s status as a sanctuary city, Kessler live-streamed himself as an attendee questioned him and apologized for an undisclosed spat during Kessler’s apparent involvement with Occupy. Kessler appeared visibly perturbed by the woman’s presence and reminders of their past association.

Kessler himself has placed his “red-pilling” around December of 2013 when a PR executive was publicly excoriated for a tasteless Twitter joke about AIDS in Africa.

Regarding the incident, Kessler stated “… so it was just a little race joke, nothing that big of a deal, she didn’t have that many followers, she probably didn’t think anybody was gonna see it,”

Regardless of Kessler’s past politics, the rightward shift in his views was first put on display in November, 2016 when his tirade against Wes Bellamy began.

Kessler was chased away from his own press conference on Sunday, given in the aftermath of the deadly riots the previous day.

Kessler was a CNN Assignment Editor?

Internet sleuths discovered a CNN report on Occupy Wall St. from five years ago submitted by “CNN Assignment Editor Jason Kessler.” Same guy?

Something’s rotten in many states…

Nothing smells right about any of this. In fact, Lee Stranahan has connected the “Unite the Right” rally to an identical Neo-Nazi movement in Ukraine supported by John McCain and Hillary Clinton.

Ukraine’s Top Rocket Company Denies Sending Know-How to NK

Ukraine’s Top Rocket Company Denies Sending Know-How to North Korea

Ukraine’s top rocket making company rejects the notion that they leaked any type of know-how to North Korea but the products could have been copied.


KB Yuzhnoye chief Alexander Degtyarev claimed that none of his employees have been leaking tech know-how to Pyongyang. Defense News stated that While Mr. Degtyarev denied any illicit technology transfers from the plant in the city of Dnipro, he conceded the possibility that the plant’s products could have been copied. “Our engines have been highly appraised and used around the world,” he said. “Maybe they have managed to build some copies somewhere.” Mr. Degtyarev mentioned that in 2011 two North Koreans posed as trade representatives and tried to steal technologies from the plant but were arrested. In 2012, they were convicted of espionage and sentenced to eight years in prison each.

Residents evacuated after propane leak at UGI Energy Service’s terminal in Steelton


STEELTON, Pa. – Some residents of this Dauphin County borough were evacuated from their homes and businesses Friday due to a propane leak that occurred earlier in the day at the UGI Energy Service's (UGIES) terminal.

Officials say the evacuation occurred from Gibson Street to Eleanor Street between Front Street and Second Street as well as the 1600 block of Cameron Street in Harrisburg. Between 60 and 110 evacuees were taken to Steelton Elementary, according to County Commissioner George Hartwick.

The leak site is near the intersection of Franklin and Front streets in Steelton, near the borders with Swatara Township and Harrisburg.

Emergency personnel from Swatara Township and other surrounding areas responded to the natural gas and electric utility along Franklin Street around 2:45 p.m. Crews from Dauphin, Cumberland and York counties responded to the scene.

According to officials, a UGIES crew was unloading the contents of a rail car into a storage tank when propane was released because a relief valve malfunctioned. The propane leaked out of a 33,000-pound stationary tank through a vent that was unable to be shut down. Shifting winds made the propane plume difficult to control.

Evacuees were first taken to the Steelton fire department, but were later taken to Steelton Elementary School where they will spend the night waiting out the evacuation order.

Propane is being transferred to an empty tank. UGIES personnel will remain on the scene until the transfer is complete, and estimated that would take until at least 4 a.m. Saturday.

Father of white-nationalist Charlottesville marcher: He 'is not welcome at our family gatherings any

According to his Facebook page, Peter Tefft identifies as a member of the alt-right. He declared the rally a success in a post containing pejorative references to nonwhites, non-Christians, and liberals.

"Ultimately, this was a victory for us," he wrote. "Our movement will be emboldened by Charlottesville."

But in the letter to The Forum, Pearce Tefft said his son had caused the family "heartbreak and distress."

"I pray my prodigal son will renounce his hateful beliefs and return home," he wrote. "Then and only then will I lay out the feast."

He continued: "His hateful opinions are bringing hateful rhetoric to his siblings, cousins, nieces, and nephews as well as his parents. Why must we be guilty by association? Again, none of his beliefs were learned at home. We do not, never have, and never will, accept his twisted worldview."

In a separate statement to The Forum, Jacob Scott, Peter Tefft's nephew, distanced himself from his uncle, calling him a "maniac" who "scares us all."

"Peter is a maniac who has turned away from all of us and gone down some insane internet rabbit-hole and turned into a crazy Nazi," Scott told the newspaper. "He scares us all, we don't feel safe around him, and we don't know how he came to be this way. My grandfather feels especially grieved, as though he has failed as a father."

Chinese Billionaire Warns America: China Has Over 20,000 Spies Who Are Ready To Destroy The US

"And these spies don’t just consist of Chinese immigrants. According to Guo, many of them are treasonous Americans who have sold their country out for a paycheck, and they can be ruthless."

RELATED: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2r4Dncu3nZo

Since the 1980’s, the US has caught and imprisoned over a dozen people who were spying on American government agencies and corporations. So we catch Chinese spies once every few years. With that kind of frequency, you’d probably assume that China doesn’t have that many intelligence assets in America at any given time. Based on those numbers, a safe estimate would be in the hundreds, or perhaps thousands.

But it turns out that those estimates would be incredible low. According to Guo Wengui, a billionaire investor who has fled China and moved to New York since becoming a major critic of the Chinese regime, there are probably 25,000 spies in America who are working for Beijing.

Those numbers are derived from what he claims, are his close ties to multiple Chinese intelligence agencies. That may sound far fetched to most Americans, but in China the public and private sectors are closely aligned. They’re practically the same entity. So we should take his warnings very seriously, which were brought up in a recent interview with The Freebeacon.

Guo said that Chinese intelligence operations in the United States sharply increased after the 2012 Communist Party Congress that brought current leader Xi Jinping to power.

“Before 2012, cumulatively China had around 10,000 to 20,000 agents working in the United States,” he said. “These agents had been sent to work in the United States over a 50 year period of time, and they were working in a defensive mode.”

According to the businessman, defensive intelligence was mainly focused on learning about the United States. The operations then shifted in 2012 to “offensive” spying, he said.

“By offensive [operations], I mean to be ready to destroy the U.S. in ways they can,” Guo said.

And these spies don’t just consist of Chinese immigrants. According to Guo, many of them are treasonous Americans who have sold their country out for a paycheck, and they can be ruthless.

China’s budget for intelligence gathering before 2012 was around $600 million annually.

Around 2012, a decision was made by Chinese leaders to dispatch another 5,000 spies to the United States. “Some of them were sent as students, some as businessmen, and some as immigrants, but all together, 5,000,” Guo said.

“In addition to that, they developed between 15,000 to 18,000 other spies, and these are not directly sent but these are developed within the United States.”

The recruited agents are not limited to Asians and Chinese-Americans but include all ethnic groups, including Hispanics, Blacks, and Caucasians.

“And now the budget is between $3 billion to $4 billion annually, and this is information up to one month ago,” he said.

Guo said American counterintelligence agencies face several problems, mainly a lack of knowledge about Chinese intelligence agencies.

“You don’t know which organizations in China are responsible for sending these spies, how they are managed, and to what purpose,” he said. “And the U.S. adopts a very legalistic perspective to look at the question of spying. Yet, for China their methods are not what the United States understands.”

“These spies, when they come to the United States, they could sleep around, they could put poison in your glass of wine to kill you; completely unscrupulous,” he said.

As for their goals, Guo claims that the spies are mainly here to steal military technologies. But they’re also here to “buy” high level government officials, as well as political and corporate elites who can give China favorable business deals. And most what’s most frightening, is that these spies have implanted malicious software in our most critical infrastructure systems, and have thoroughly infiltrated our government’s major weapons suppliers.

Which raises an important question. How did our government let this happen? Isn’t the all powerful NSA surveillance grid capable of catching these people?

Apparently not. It appears that we’ve traded our freedom for security, but somewhere along the line we didn’t receive any security. While our government was busy funding and training the terrorists that would later inspire the acceptance of widespread government surveillance and the destruction of our civil liberties, they overlooked the flood of Chinese spies who have infiltrated every level of our society.

Band of thieves steals record amount in heist of the century.

The federal government collected record amounts of both individual income taxes and payroll taxes through the first ten months of fiscal 2017 (Oct. 1, 2016 through the end of July), according to the Monthly Treasury Statement.

Through July, the federal government collected approximately $1,312,691,000,000 in individual income taxes.

At the same time, it collected $976,278,000,000 in Social Security and other payroll taxes.

Prior to this year, fiscal 2015 held the record for individual income tax collections through July. That year, the Treasury collected $1,309,431,860,000 (in constant 2017 dollars) in individual income taxes in the first ten months of the fiscal year.

Last year (fiscal 2016), individual income tax collections from October through July dropped to $1,293,490,000,000 (in constant 2017 dollars).

This year’s record of $1,312,691,000,000 in October-to-July individual income taxes is $3,259,140,000 more than the 2015’s previous record of $1,309,431,860,000.

Before this year’s record $976,278,000,000 in October-through-July payroll tax collections, fiscal 2016 held the record at $948,709,020,000 (in constant 2017 dollars)—or about $27,568,980,000 less than this year.

Overall federal tax collections in the first ten months of fiscal 2017 were $2,739,861,000,000. Yet that did not the record for October-through-July total federal tax collections. In the first ten months of fiscal 2015, the Treasury collected $2,741,079,280,000 (in constant 2017 dollars) in total taxes. That was $361,218,280,000 more than this year.

While the Treasury has been collecting record amounts of individual income taxes and payroll taxes this fiscal year, some other categories of federal tax revenues have declined since 2015.

For example, in the first ten months of fiscal 2015, the Treasury collected $272,904,380,000 (in constant 2017 dollars) in corporate income taxes. In the first ten months of fiscal 2017, the Treasury collected only $232,294,000,000 corporate income taxes.

In the first ten months of fiscal 2015, customs duties were $30,705,180,000 (in constant 2017 dollars). In the first ten months of fiscal 2017, they were only $28,427,000,000.

In the first ten months of fiscal 2015, excise taxes were $68,686,630,000 (in constant 2017 dollars). In the first ten months of fiscal 2017, they were only $65,187,000,000.

Even as it was collecting record individual income taxes and payroll taxes in the first ten months of fiscal 2017, the Treasury still ran a deficit of $566,022,000,000.

That is because while the overall federal tax collections for the period were $2,739,861,000,000, overall federal spending was $3,305,882,000,000.

(Historical tax revenues were put in constant 2017 dollars using the Bureau of Labor Statistics inflation calculator.)

Iran Warns It Could Quit Nuclear Deal

Iran Warns It Could Quit Nuclear Deal

The Iranian Parliament voted unanimously to approve "show vote" on a bill to increase funding to a number of "special projects," including the Revolutionary Guard, which answers only to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. Additionally, the bill sanctions U.S. government officials.


Prior to voting unanimously to increase funding to its ballistic missile program and the Revolutionary Guard paramilitary units, the Iranian parliament chanted "Death to America!" for several minutes. The bill, which was approved 240-0 with one abstention in the 247-member body, was largely a “show vote” in response to U.S. sanctions and President Donald Trump’s threats to renegotiate Iran’s nuclear deal with the West that was negotiated by the Obama administration. It levies sanctions against an ever-increasing list of companies and government officials the Islamic Republic accuses of coordinating with ISIS and al Qaeda and provides $800 million in funding for several “special projects.”

Among these are:

· the Revolutionary Guards’ Quds force, the paramilitary group that answers only to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei;

· the expeditionary military force that has been advising anti-ISIS forces in Syria and Iraq;

· improvements to Iran’s defense against a nuclear attack; and

· development of naval nuclear propulsion systems—which is allowed under the terms of the nuclear deal.

The bill also bans visas for American officials involved with the Iranian exile group called the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq. Effectively, the bill does very little. The number of U.S. citizens who visit Iran, or have bank accounts there, is tiny. Instead, it is meant to rally the Iranian public against President Trump and the U.S. Iranian President Hassan Rouhani stated:

>The bill has very wisely tried not to violate the (nuclear deal) and also gives no chance to the other party to manipulate it. This bill is an astute response to the enmity and wickedness of the United States against Iran.

Before it can become law, the ruling Guardian Council must first approve the measure. That approval is widely expected.

That's what happens when you insult the white race with a swastika rather than to unify it like hitler did with La Virgen de Guadalupe, Orale buey… this race traitor paid the price and he deserved it. I hope his family starves, I want to see her little daughter be forced by hunger to go out into the street and open her legs to recieve Jamal Thundercock's superior semen for the sake of a dollar or two. I want the wife to fuck and get impregnated by her daughter's bf while the husband is out looking for a job like a fool.

If you commit treason against the white race like COLE WHITE, you deserve your family to pay the price! The white race will not tolerate race treason under any circumstances.

You can join this guy to do Hitler's work (make whites that don't use the Guadalupe Virgin as the symbol of white nationalism suffer… as well as their families, because that's what Hitler would want racially aware whites to do): https://twitter.com/YesYoureRacist/

Crabs Strut Their Stuff At Annual Fashion Show

Let’s be very clear, this show does not rival those in Paris, London, or New York City. However, the models, which are all Mitten Crabs, are considerably happier to be at the Hongze Lake Harvest Festival. Their inclusion means that they will survive at least another year, as locals believe it is bad luck to eat a model the year it participates. The crab fashion show has been a part of the city of Huai’an’s annual traditions for at least 70 years. The city, in Eastern China’s Jiangsu province, celebrates the harvest of hairy crab, the other name for the mitten crab. Although the number of crabs declined in recent years, leading to higher prices, the people around the lake still harvest nearly 6,000 tons of crab each year.

John Oliver: ‘It doesn’t get easier than disavowing Nazis’ but ‘f*cking idiot’ Trump screwed it up

President Trump has drawn widespread criticism from Republicans and Democrats for his initial remarks on the violence in Charlottesville, Va. But few statements were as chilling as John Oliver’s on Sunday night.

The host of HBO’s “Last Week Tonight” started his opening segment with his usual quirky joking, but ended the eight-minute piece slamming Trump with a somber and, at times, quietly outraged tone.

“There is clearly no point in waiting for leadership from our president at moments like this, because it is just not coming,” Oliver said.

The comedian was referring to Trump’s statements immediately following violence in which a man drove a car through a crowd of people, killing one woman and injuring at least 19 others. After the violence on Saturday, Trump said, “We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence on many sides.”

Trump Says Keeping Syrian Refugees In Region Is 'Best Way To Help Most People'


In a joint Rose Garden press conference Tuesday, President Trump stood beside Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri and said the United States is helping Syrian refugees by supporting their needs close to home.

"Our approach supporting the humanitarian needs of displaced Syrian citizens as close to their home country as possible is the best way to help most people." Trump said.

In April the State Department announced new funding in response to the Syrian crisis, with $167 million going to Lebanon in support of Syrian refugees, totaling $1.4 billion since the start of the conflict.

Hariri was expected to seek additional U.S. aid to help deal with the flood of Syrian refugees who now make up about a quarter of Lebanon's population of 6 million people, reports The Associated Press.

Before the press conference, the leaders met in the Oval Office and Hariri said they "discussed the pressures Lebanon is facing as a result of 1.5 million Syrians displaced in our country. I outlined to President Trump my government vision for dealing with this crisis with the support of the international community."

The Trump administration's first travel ban barred all Syrian refugees from entering the United States. That portion was removed after an appeals court blocked the order and the Trump administration rolled out a second "watered down" ban.

An appeals court overturned that ban as well, but the Supreme Court allowed portions to go through, including a 50,000 cap on refugees allowed into the U.S. — a number reached earlier this month, meaning many will be turned away.

Experts: Kim Jong-un Has a Non-Nuclear ‘Trump Card’

Experts: Kim Jong-un Has a Non-Nuclear ‘Trump Card’

North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un possesses thousands of tons of chemical weapons, which many analysts believe should give the U.S. pause before launching a pre-emptive strike against the Hermit Kingdom.


According to several non-proliferation experts, North Korea has a “trump card” it is using to make American military strategists think twice about any pre-emptive military strike: chemical weapons. Arms Control Association Director of Non-Proliferation Policy Kelsey Davenport, in an interview with McClatchy’s D.C. Bureau, said:

>Nuclear weapons are not the only threat. North Korea could respond to a U.S. attack using chemical weapons. That would be devastating.

North Korea is thought to have between 2,500 and 5,000 tons of VX and Sarin gas, and thousands of artillery pieces aimed at South Korea, already armed with chemical weapons, despite claims that it does not possess chemical weapons. Kim Jong-un’s grandfather, Kim Il-sung, ordered the Hermit Kingdom to begin manufacturing chemical weapons in 1961. Military analyst Reid Kirby, writing for the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, concluded:

>History shows a willingness in Pyongyang to engage in military provocations short of the level that would justify a renewal of the Korean War. Nonetheless, it is possible to make a rough estimate of the impact of a massive chemical artillery attack on a large urban center such as Seoul. Ultimately, such an estimate is illustrative, representing one of many possible scenarios, yet it can still provide a reasonable understanding of the potential magnitude of a sarin artillery attack against civilian population centers. If publicly stated intelligence estimates are to be believed, North Korea’s chemical arsenal represents a credible and present threat. How North Korea could apply this threat as a deterrent is speculative. But the destructive potential of the threat should give reasonable cause to hesitate regarding preemptive military options against North Korea’s nuclear weapons ambitions.

But is that kind of pause exactly what Kim Jong-un is banking on to keep his regime alive?

In another interview with NBC's "Meet the Press," Signer stated that Trump’s campaign “made a choice to go to people’s prejudices, to go to the gutter,” and added that “the time has come for this to stop. This should be a turning point.” He said that the so-called "alt-right" white nationalist movement "has run its course."

Rights leaders demand Trump fire ‘alt-right’ hero Steve Bannon

Religious and civil rights leaders called on President Donald Trump to fire White House advisors Steve Bannon and Sebastian Gorka, whose association with the white-supremacist “alt-right” movement have come under heightened scrutiny following Saturday’s violent racial clash in Charlottesville, Va.

“Supporters of white supremacists, violent extremism, racial bigotry and neo-Nazis should not serve in the White House or any level of government,” said Vanita Gupta, president and CEO of The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, during a telephone press briefing with reporters on Sunday.

Bannon, Trump’s chief strategist, is the former executive chairman of Breitbart News, a right-wing conservative news site that’s a favorite with white nationalists and the so-called “alt-right” movement of anti-semitic and white-power groups, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. Bannon also served as CEO of Trump’s presidential campaign.

Gorka, a deputy assistant to Trump, has ties to anti-Semitic, right-wing groups in Hungary.

Natalia Poklonskaya may have undeclared apartment in Donetsk

Natalia Poklonskaya may have undeclared apartment in Donetsk


>Natalia Poklonskaya, a State Duma deputy and a former Crimean prosecutor, may have an undeclared apartment in Donetsk, reported Transparency International Russia.

>According to the anti-corruption center, there is an apartment of 29.9 square meters on Donetsk’s Rimskogo-Korsakova Street registered in the name of Natalia Vladimirovna Dubrovskaya. The organization believes that Dubrovskaya must be the State Duma deputy’s maiden name. The person’s date of birth happens to coincide with that of Poklonskaya: March 18, 1980. Besides, the only Natalia Vladimirovna Dubrovskaya listed in Ukraine’s telephone directory officially lives in the village of Uyutnoye near Evpatoria, the very place Poklonskaya grew up in. Transparency International also claims to have found Poklonskaya’s daughter on the social network VKontakte, who is there under the last name Dubrovskaya. The investigators found pictures of the same cat in Poklonskaya’s profile and that of the child.

>"If the apartment does belong to Natalia Poklonskaya, it has not been included in her declaration four times, contrary to the law," experts stated in the investigation.

>According to the income declaration for 2016, Poklonskaya has two apartments in her use: one is in Moscow (79.8 sq. m.) – as for nonresident deputy; the second one (116.6 sq.

Jewish artist causes Twitter to increase censorship


BERLIN (AP) – An artist tired of seeing hateful tweets ignored by Twitter has managed to get the social network to remove or hide some of them - by spray-painting the offending posts in front of the company's German headquarters.

Shahak Shapira said he reported some 300 tweets containing possible illegal content to Twitter over a period of about six months but the social networking site ignored him. This occurred at a time when Twitter was arguing against tough new legislation in Germany, insisting it was already taking sufficient measures against hate speech.

Shapira said he painted almost 30 of the offending tweets on the street in front of Twitter's Hamburg offices Friday because "flagging things clearly wasn't enough."

"I had to spray it on the ground," he told The Associated Press in a telephone interview Wednesday.

The Israeli-born artist said he never got any kind of direct response from Twitter, either before or after the stunt.

But a video of it received over 100,000 views in 48 hours and clearly got the company's attention. By Wednesday, Twitter had deleted three tweets, suspended four accounts and withheld another seven accounts in Germany.

Trump gets new toy

“A little advice, Mr. President, a good rule to live by: If you’re going to go after a woman’s appearance, first make sure you’re not a fat old man with orange face paint pretending to be a blond at the age of 71.”

“Morning Joe is in a twitter feud with the Real Housewife of Pennsylvania Avenue,” Maher said at the top of tonight’s Real Time With Bill Maher on HBO. Quoting the president’s low-bar tweet about MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski (“She was bleeding badly from a face-lift”), Maher said, “That slapping sound you heard yesterday was the entire country going…”, then did a forehead slap.

North Korea Got Its ICBM Engines From U.S. Ally

North Korea Got Its ICBM Engines From U.S. Ally

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un inspects the intercontinental ballistic missile Hwasong-14 ahead of its test launch last month. A new report by The New York Times alleges North Korea made major improvements to its missiles with help from a factory in Ukraine.


Once again, Ukraine has some explaining to do to President Donald Trump. The New York Times, in a new report that cites U.S. intelligence sources, claims North Korea’s sudden success with its ICBM development program is the direct result of black-market purchases from a factory in a supposed U.S.-allied nation:

>North Korea’s success in testing an intercontinental ballistic missile that appears able to reach the United States was made possible by black-market purchases of powerful rocket engines probably from a Ukrainian factory with historical ties to Russia’s missile program, according to an expert analysis being published Monday and classified assessments by American intelligence agencies. The studies may solve the mystery of how North Korea began succeeding so suddenly after a string of fiery missile failures, some of which may have been caused by American sabotage of its supply chains and cyberattacks on its launches. After those failures, the North changed designs and suppliers in the past two years, according to a new study by Michael Elleman, a missile expert at the International Institute for Strategic Studies. Such a degree of aid to North Korea from afar would be notable because President Trump has singled out only China as the North’s main source of economic and technological support. He has never blamed Ukraine or Russia, though his secretary of state, Rex W. Tillerson, made an oblique reference to both China and Russia as the nation’s “principal economic enablers” after the North’s most recent ICBM launch last month.

This follows the report last month that a Ukrainian-born Democratic National Committee contractor met with the Ukrainian ambassador during the 2016 presidential election with the hope of receiving damaging information about the president.

Jason Kessler was an Obama supporter before he claimed to be right-wing

‘Unite the Right’ organizer Jason Kessler was reportedly an Obama supporter involved in the Occupy movement as recently as November 2016, before establishing his white supremacist group “Unity & Security for America” in January, 2017.

Per the Southern Poverty Law Center:

Rumors abound on white nationalist forums that Kessler’s ideological pedigree before 2016 was less than pure and seem to point to involvement in the Occupy movement and past support for President Obama.

At one recent speech in favor of Charlottesville’s status as a sanctuary city,Kessler live-streamed himself as an attendee questioned him and apologized for an undisclosed spat during Kessler’s apparent involvement with Occupy. Kessler appeared visibly perturbed by the woman’s presence and reminders of their past association.

Kessler himself has placed his “red-pilling” around December of 2013 when a PR executive was publicly excoriated for a tasteless Twitter joke about AIDS in Africa.

Regarding the incident, Kessler stated “… so it was just a little race joke, nothing that big of a deal, she didn’t have that many followers, she probably didn’t think anybody was gonna see it,”

Regardless of Kessler’s past politics, the rightward shift in his views was first put on display in November, 2016 when his tirade against Wes Bellamy began.

Kessler was chased away from his own press conference on Sunday, given in the aftermath of the deadly riots the previous day.

FBI Booby-Trapped a Video file to Catch TOR Sextortionist

Monday, prosecutors announced charges against Buster Hernandez, 26, of Bakersfield, California. Hernandez is charged with threats to use an explosive device and sexual exploitation of a child. He is suspected of using the moniker "Brian Kil."

Since 2015, Brian Kil has used social media, email, and VoIP to communicate with a number of underage female victims and extort sexual photos from them, according to the criminal complaint. Under duress, some victims sent explicit images and videos to Kil.

When Kil used sites like Facebook to harass victims, investigators found he was always hidden either behind an anonymous proxy or the Tor network, meaning authorities could not simply subpoena relevant companies for the suspect's IP address.

In this case, the FBI was authorized to add a small piece of extra code to a video file produced by one of the victims. Posing as the victim, the FBI then sent the booby-trapped file to Kil via Dropbox.

Judging by the complaint, the NIT was successful. "When Kil viewed the video containing the NIT on a computer the NIT disclosed the true IP address associated with the computer used by Kil,"

American tourist gives Nazi salute in Germany, is beaten up

BERLIN (AP) — Police say a drunken American man was punched by a passer-by as he gave the stiff-armed Nazi salute multiple times in downtown Dresden.

Dresden police said Sunday the 41-year-old, whose name and hometown weren’t given for privacy reasons, suffered minor injuries in the 8:15 a.m. Saturday assault.

Police say the American, who is under investigation for violating Germany’s laws against the display of Nazi symbols or slogans, had an extremely high blood alcohol level. His assailant fled the scene, and is being sought for causing bodily harm.

It’s the second time this month that tourists have gotten themselves into legal trouble for giving the Nazi salute.

On August 5 two Chinese tourists were caught taking photos of themselves making the gesture in front of Berlin’s Reichstag building.

Dead whore soldier remembered as "beautiful bubbly girl"

The woman found dead at a bucks' party at a Melbourne hotel earlier this month has been remembered as a "beautiful bubbly girl", who became an Australian soldier just four months before her death.

Private Natasha Rowley, 20, was found dead on July 16 in the shower of a room at The Oaks on Market apartments that had been rented by a group of 11 men from the ACT and NSW on a bucks' night.

It is understood Private Rowley, affectionately known as Tash and "Tooty" to her friends and family, met the men at a nightclub in the early hours of July 16 before returning to their hotel.

After interviewing four of the men who attended the bucks' party, police said there were no suspicious circumstances surrounding her death. It is believed Private Rowley's death may be a case of misadventure, but the cause of her death is yet to be revealed.

Jewish tech companies Google and Facebook sponsoring protest of Pro-Life women’s clinic

Two of the most powerful companies in the world are co-sponsoring a protest against a pro-life women’s health care clinic that provides free medical services and counseling to pregnant women — just not abortions.

Facebook and Google are co-sponsoring Netroots Nation, an annual gathering of progressive activists and political leaders that is targeting a pro-life organization, Human Coalition, and the health care clinics they operate under the name Cura, which provide free medical services and counseling for women with unplanned pregnancies. The protest’s organizers claim two primary motivations for going after Human Coalition’s clinics: they’re pro-life, and they’re successful.

Netroots’ official agenda has the protest scheduled for Saturday at noon, immediately following one event featuring Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, and shortly before another event featuring former Vice President Al Gore. Google and Facebook are listed as “premier sponsors” of Netroots, alongside far-left organizations like Planned Parenthood.

President Trump's approval rating dropped in August to a new low

President Trump's approval rating dropped 5 percentage points in August to a new low of 32%, according to the latest IBD/TIPP Poll, with 59% saying they disapprove of the job he's doing as president.

Trump lost significant support across the board, but saw big declines among areas of core support, including Republicans, Midwesterners, middle-income families, white men and the high-school educated. The results come in the wake of the Senate's failure to repeal ObamaCare, upheavals in the White House staff, the ongoing investigation into Russian meddling in the election, and the daily beatings administered by the mainstream press.

Among Republicans, for example, Trump's approval rating fell from 83% in July to 71% in August. Trump's already low approval ratings remained relatively unchanged among Democrats (4%) and independents (30%).

In terms of income, Trump lost the most support from those with household incomes between $30,000 and $50,000. Among this group, Trump's approval rating dropped from 40% in July to 27% in August.

Trump's support among white men — the one demographic group who approved of Trump — dropped from 51% in July to 44% in August. The nearby chart shows other groups with big drops in August.

In a series of tweets Monday morning, Trump complained about the results of other polls, saying that his "base is far bigger & stronger than ever before (despite some phony Fake News polling). Look at rallies in Penn, Iowa, Ohio……"

The nationwide IBD/TIPP Poll was conducted from July 28 to Aug. 5 and includes 904 respondents. IBD/TIPP was credited with having the most accurate poll in the November election, and was one of only two national polls that correctly predicted a Trump victory.

Kabul Iraqi Embassy Attack Raises Fears ISIS Has Relocated

Kabul Iraqi Embassy Attack Raises Fears ISIS Has Relocated

An attack on the Iraqi embassy in Kabul has reinforced fears that ISIS is seeking to bring the group's Middle East conflict to Afghanistan, though evidence remains elusive.


(WASHINGTON, DC) Islamic State said it carried out Monday's attack, which began with a suicide bomber blowing himself up at the embassy's main gate, allowing gunmen to enter the building and battle security forces. The choice of target, three weeks after the fall of Mosul to Iraqi troops, appeared to back up repeated warnings from Afghan security officials that, as Islamic State fighters were pushed out of Syria and Iraq, they risked showing up in Afghanistan. "This year we're seeing more new weapons in the hands of the insurgents and an increase in numbers of foreign fighters," said Afghan Defense Ministry spokesman Gen. Dawlat Waziri. "They are used in front lines because they are war veterans."

One senior security official put the number of foreigners fighting for both Islamic State and the Taliban in Afghanistan at roughly 7,000, most operating across the border from their home countries of Pakistan, Uzbekistan or Tajikistan, but also including others from countries such as India. While such foreign fighters have long been present in Afghanistan, there has been growing concern that militants from Arab countries, who have left the fighting in Syria as pressure on Islamic State there has grown, have also been arriving in Afghanistan through Iran. "We are not talking about a simple militant fighter, we are talking about battle-hardened, educated and professional fighters in the thousands," another security official said.

"They are more dangerous because they can and will easily recruit fighters and foot soldiers here." The United States, which first came to Afghanistan in 2001 after Al Qaeda's attacks on New York and Washington, is considering sending more troops to Afghanistan, in part to ensure the country does not become a haven for foreign militant groups. But while Afghan and U.S. officials have long warned of the risk that foreign fighters from Syria could move over to Afghanistan, there has been considerable skepticism over how many have actually done so. In April, during a visit to Kabul by U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis, the commander of NATO forces in Afghanistan, Gen. John Nicholson, said that, while ISIS had an "aspiration" to bring in fighters from Syria, "we haven't seen it happen".

U.S. commanders say that, in partnership with Afghan security forces, they have severely reduced Islamic State's strength over the past year with a combination of drone strikes and Special Forces operations. But according to Afghan intelligence documents reviewed by Reuters, security officials believe Islamic State is present in nine provinces, from Nangarhar and Kunar in the east to Jawzjan, Faryab and Badakhshan in the north and Ghor in the central west. "In recent operations, we have inflicted heavy losses on them but their focus is to recruit fighters from this area," said Juma Gul Hemat, police chief of Kunar, an eastern province where Islamic State fighters pushed out of their base in neighboring Nangarhar have increasingly sought refuge.

"They are not only from Pakistan or former Taliban, there are fighters from other countries and other small groups have pledged their allegiance to them," he said. Afghan officials say newly arrived foreign fighters have been heavily involved in fighting in Nangarhar province, Islamic State's main stronghold in Afghanistan, where they have repeatedly clashed with the Taliban. Security officials say they are still investigating Monday's embassy attack and it is too early to say whether there was any foreign influence or involvement.

Islamic State put out a statement identifying two of the attackers as Abu Julaybib Al-Kharasani and Abu Talha Al-Balkhi, Arabic names that nonetheless suggest Afghan origins. Khorasan is an old name for the Central Asian region that includes Afghanistan, while Balkh is a province in northern Afghanistan. What little contact is possible with fighters loyal to Islamic State in Afghanistan suggests that the movement itself is keen to encourage the idea that foreign militants are joining its ranks. "We have our brothers in hundreds from different countries," said an Islamic State commander in Achin district of Nangarhar. "Most of them have families and homes that were destroyed by the atrocity and brutality of the infidel forces in Arab countries, especially by the Americans," he said. "They can greatly help us in terms of teaching our fighters new tactics, with weapons and other resources."

SoftBank invests $250 Million Into US Online Lender

Japans Softbank made their latest fintech investment by giving $250 million to Kabbage Inc. a U.S. online lender for small businesses.


(NEW YORK) Kabbage Inc, a U.S. online lender for small businesses, said on Thursday it had raised $250 million in equity funding from SoftBank Group Corp (9984.T), the latest fintech investment by the Japanese technology conglomerate. That is the largest equity investment in such lenders outside of China so far, according to data provider CB Insights. The Atlanta-based startup, which operates in North America and Europe, will use the cash to add lending products and other types of financial services, it said in a statement. Kabbage plans to launch in Asia within the next 18 months, co-founder and Chief Executive Rob Frohwein said in an interview. "We believe that our system can be deployed rapidly on an international basis."

He declined to disclose Kabbage's new financial services. Kabbage is among a group of young companies that use digital technologies to lower lending costs and offer credit faster than brick-and-mortar institutions. Founded in 2009, Kabbage sells its technology to large banks to provide credit online, and has provided nearly $3.5 billion in funding to small businesses. Its technology powers automated lending for banks Banco Santander SA (SAN.MC), ING Groep NV (INGA.AS) and Scotiabank (BNS.TO).

SoftBank, led by Chief Executive Masayoshi Son, has become a prolific global investor in technology startups. In 2015 it invested $1 billion in San Francisco-based online student lender Social Finance, known as SoFi. While online lending is expanding, the sector has faced growing pains, including softer institutional investor demand due to concerns about loan quality. This has made it harder for such lenders to raise funding, leading analysts and market participants to suggest the sector might be headed for consolidation. In March Reuters reported that Kabbage was looking to raise a new round of equity funding for potential consolidation, with listed competitor On Deck being one of its acquisition targets. Kabbage has no "specific plan" to buy On Deck, Frohwein said. "We look at all sorts of opportunities, but it needs to be in spaces that are not similar or overlapping with what we do."

Researchers use CRISPR to store a movie in living bacteria

Forget iTunes or your old zipper case of DVDs. How about storing movies in a Petri dish of E. coli?



>Researchers at Harvard Medical School and the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering have stored a short video in the DNA of bacteria and then retrieved it. It’s the first time a video has been recorded into living cells, and the development could have environmental applications.

>“DNA is a great place to store information. Biology uses it quite effectively,” said Seth Shipman, a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard Medical School and first author of the study. “It’s compact, and it’s incredibly stable.”

>Shipman and his colleagues encoded Eadweard Muybridge’s “Sallie Gardner at a Gallop,” otherwise known as “The Horse in Motion,” one of the earliest series of moving images ever created.

>To get the DNA stored into the bacterial genome, researchers used the CRISPR-Cas system, a powerful gene-editing tool. The researchers chopped up each frame into single-colored pixels. They then created DNA codes that corresponded to each color and strung several codes together.

>Each bacterium took in snippets of the video and stored it in their DNA. Taken together, the researchers were able to put the pieces back and play the video.

>With this work, Shipman said they eventually want to create “molecular recorders,” which are living cells that could sense things in the environment, like toxins or heavy metals, and record and store that information within their DNA.

United Nations Proudly Flaunts Plans For White Genocide On Their Own Website

The UN plans to replace USA, the UK, all of Europe, the Republic of Korea, Russia and Japan populations with MUSLIM migrants ASAP! THEY’RE NOT EVEN HIDING IT ANYMORE!

The United Nations has a solution for the problem of the declining birthrates and aging populations. The issue will be fixed by an influx of Muslim refugees.

First, they take virtually all disposable income from people through taxation.

Second, they kill the economy and drive up housing and education expenses, forcing responsible people to delay marriage and reduce birthrates.

Third, they subsidize the reproduction of irresponsible people.

Fourth, import illiterate immigrants and pay them to reproduce in America.

Fifth, promote class divisions and pit the poor against anyone that opposes them.

Finally, they wait for the majority to become a class of people who rely on government for their very survival and we fix the rules to secure ourselves as the permanent ruling class.



United Nations projections indicate that over the next 50 years, the populations of virtually all countries of Europe as well as Japan will face population decline and population ageing. The new challenges of declining and ageing populations will require comprehensive reassessments of many established policies and programmes, including those relating to international migration.

Focusing on these two striking and critical population trends, the report considers replacement migration for eight low-fertility countries (France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Republic of Korea, Russian Federation, United Kingdom and United States) and two regions (Europe and the European Union). Replacement migration refers to the international migration that a country would need to offset population decline and population ageing resulting from low fertility and mortality rates.

The United Nations now needs to be declared an enemy of America, immediately removed and sanctioned from all Western nations and allies! If the US military cared about it's fellow citizens, they would immediately carpet bomb the UN.

Haiti Official, Who Exposed The Clinton Foundation, Found Dead In Miami

Klaus Eberwein, a former Haitian government official who was expected to expose the extent of Clinton Foundation corruption and malpractice next week, has been found dead in Miami. He was 50.

Eberwein was due to appear next Tuesday before the Haitian Senate Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission where he was widely expected to testify that the Clinton Foundation misappropriated Haiti earthquake donations from international donors.

According to Miami-Dade’s medical examiner records supervisor, the official cause of death is “gunshot to the head“. Eberwein’s death has been registered as “suicide.” (Of-course!!!)

Eberwein, who had acknowledged his life was in danger, was a fierce critic of the Clinton Foundation’s activities in the Caribbean island, where he served as director general of the government’s economic development agency, Fonds d’assistance économique et social, for three years.

According to Eberwein, a paltry 0.6% of donations granted by international donors to the Clinton Foundation with the express purpose of directly assisting Haitians actually ended up in the hands of Haitian organizations. A further 9.6% ended up with the Haitian government. The remaining 89.8% – or $5.4 billion – was funneled to non-Haitian organizations.

“The Clinton Foundation, they are criminals, they are thieves, they are liars, they are a disgrace,” Eberwein said at a protest outside the Clinton Foundation headquarters in Manhattan last year.

The former director general of Haiti, who also served as an advisor to Haitian President Michel Martelly, was also a partner in a popular pizza restaurant in Haiti, Muncheez, and even has a pizza — the Klaus Special — named after him.

According to the Haiti Libre newspaper, Eberwein was said to be in “good spirits“, with plans for the future. His close friends and business partners are shocked by the idea he may have committed suicide.

“It’s really shocking,” said Muncheez’s owner Gilbert Bailly. “We grew up together; he was like family.”

Bailly said he last spoke to Eberwein two weeks ago and he was in good spirits. They were excited about future business plans and were working on opening a Muncheez restaurant in Sunrise, he said.

The Haitian government issued an official notice thanking Eberwein for his service and mourning his untimely death.

JUSTICE PREVAILS! Another Large Pedo Bust Leads To Arrest of MSM Reporter Ben McCormack

Ben McCormack, a popular reporter from A Current Affair, has been linked to a pedophile ring and arrested.

International Law Enforcement was deep into an investigation of a child sex trafficking network when they were lead to investigating a specific suspected child rapist in Western Australia.

What was netted from that investigation uncovered phone records, computer files and other information about the ring, which allegedly included school teachers and Mr. McCormack.

The information was then shared with police across the country, and led to the arrest of a West Australian Catholic primary school teacher.

In early February the investigation into the child rapist lead to 35 additional charges against him. It's unclear if he cooperated with authorities to bring down a larger network.

Mr. McCormack, 42, was arrested in Sydney, Australia, and is now charged with two counts of using a carriage service for child pornography material.

Police in New South Wales allege McCormack engaged in explicit conversations with and about underage children with another adult male and discussed the purchase and sale of child pornography.

Mr. McCormack was released on bail and was later admitted to a private hospital by his attorneys for “rehabilitation”.

He is now scheduled for preliminary hearings on the Fourth of July.

Capitalist Boom: Russia-China Trade Surges 26% in First Half of 2017

Trade between Moscow and Beijing has increased significantly in the first six months of the year, according to the Chinese customs administration.

Through June, trade between Russia and China was worth $39.78 billion. Russian exports increased 29.3 percent to $20.34 billion, while Chinese exports to Russia were up 22.2 percent to $19.44 billion.

In 2016, trade between Moscow and Beijing grew only 2.2 percent to $69.52 billion. The countries have set a goal to boost trade to $200 billion by 2020.

In July, the Russian Direct Investment Fund and the China Development Bank (CDB) agreed to establish a Russian-Chinese investment fund worth 68 billion yuan ($10 billion). It was created to make settlements in ruble and yuan easier.

Both Moscow and Beijing have repeatedly talked about the importance of payments in local currencies for bilateral trade.

The agreement was signed at a meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping, while he was in Russia on an official visit.

The countries are also jointly building the Power of Siberia gas pipeline, and a liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility on the Yamal Peninsula in the Russian Arctic. Over the past year, Russia has overtaken Saudi Arabia as China’s top oil supplier.

China is building a new transport corridor to Europe as part of the Belt and Road Initiative (also known as the New Silk Road), which goes through Kazakhstan and Russia to Europe.

Ebola scare shows that the world is still not ready for a major disease outbreak

Ebola scare shows that the world is still not ready for a major disease outbreak


>When cases of Ebola were detected in the Democratic Republic of the Congo in May, local officials moved swiftly and global resources were rushed to help them. By the time the World Health Organization declared the outbreak over on July 2, only four people had died, four more had survived the disease, and the outbreak had been contained in a remote region of the country.

>Three years after the West Africa Ebola outbreak was first identified in March 2014, eventually killing more than 11,000 people and striking fear of global contagion, the world’s health leaders have taken steps to ensure they can mount a better response the next time such a threat arises.

>But let’s not be fooled by a false sense of security. The world is still not as prepared as it should be to prevent or withstand the next disease outbreak. There is a dangerous rift between smart solutions and the political action needed to get them done.

>A new Ebola vaccine was stockpiled by Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance. More vaccines will be developed to fight potential future epidemics, thanks to investments by the newly formed Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations. And the WHO, much maligned for reacting slowly to the West Africa outbreak, has reformed its structure by setting up the WHO Health Emergencies Programme to rapidly respond to any outbreak.

>While these are significant achievements, other initiatives remain unfunded or on the back burner. Many recommendations seem to have been ignored or forgotten.

>We still don’t have a rapid, effective, easy-to-use diagnostic tool. To be sure, on-site labs can diagnose Ebola relatively swiftly. But in rural areas, such labs are few and far between, requiring that samples be transported long distances before a diagnosis is made. There still are no drugs to treat Ebola. Countries still hesitate to share their data and samples, fearful that rich countries will use them to make vaccines that don’t benefit citizens of poor countries. Progress has been slow in limiting the impact of trade and travel restrictions — when most international airlines stopped flying to Ebola-affected countries in 2014 and 2015, that prevented health workers from entering the country and significantly disrupted the economy by stopping trade. And we have not reached clarity on the lines of responsibility among UN agencies, important for ensuring a speedy response in the next crisis.

>The outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo exposed our anemic progress. There was a stockpiled vaccine, but it hadn’t been licensed anywhere and there were no robust plans and protocols in place to use it. If the WHO and its partners could have ensured the vaccine was pre-approved in at-risk countries and ready to be shipped to village clinics when needed, the country’s Ministry of Health would not have had to examine data and make a crucial decision in the middle of an outbreak.

>Dozens of susceptible countries have worked with a global program to help them evaluate what they need to do to prevent disease outbreaks, but there is little funding available to help them build on the recommendations. G20 ministers of health continue to talk about pandemic preparedness as a priority, yet we’ve not seen commensurate funding put toward these initiatives. The Contingency Fund, set up to support the WHO’s emergencies program, has received only one-third of its targeted $100 million. This is particularly worrisome given that budget proposals by the Trump administration reduce support for the WHO and other UN agencies involved in this work.

>Fortunately, the outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo was contained. But unless we mend this rift between technical recommendations and political action, we risk paying a steep price the next time a deadly outbreak occurs.

Trump Walks Away From Reporters After Being Asked To Denounce White Supremacists

By Sean Colarossi on Sat, Aug 12th, 2017 at 4:35 pm

The willingness of this president to ignore what is specifically fueling the outbreak of deadly violence and hatred in Virginia will only give oxygen to those causing it.

Trump addressed the country in the midst of the chaos and deadly violence surrounding an alt-right Nazi rally in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday, but he refused to denounce white nationalism when asked several times by reporters.

Instead, after he finished his planned remarks, the president roamed around the room unsure of where to go, signed a bill, and then walked out without answering some of the most softball questions ever asked of a president.

When reporters asked him whether he wants “the support of these white nationalist groups who say they support” him or if he’s “denounced them strongly enough,” Trump strolled out of the room, likely planning his next round of golf in Bedminster, New Jersey.

Condemning violence of any kind and issuing a blanket statement that people “on many sides” are to blame, which Trump did today, is a coward’s way out. It does nothing to calm the chaos in Virginia, and it may actually make things worse by creating a false equivalency between the counter-protesters and the alt-right Nazis.

Costing only $550, the spectral transmission-reflectance-intensity (TRI)-Analyzer from Bioengineering and Electrical & Computer Engineering Professor Brian Cunningham’s lab attaches to a smartphone and analyzes patient blood, urine, or saliva samples as reliably as clinic-based instruments that cost thousands of dollars.

“Our TRI Analyzer is like the Swiss Army knife of biosensing,” said Cunningham, the Donald Biggar Willett Professor of Engineering and director of the Micro + Nanotechnology Lab at Illinois. “It’s capable of performing the three most common types of tests in medical diagnostics, so in practice, thousands of already-developed tests could be adapted to it.”

In a recently published paper, Cunningham’s team used the TRI Analyzer to perform two commercially available assays—a test to detect a biomarker associated with pre-term birth in pregnant women and the PKU test for newborns to indirectly detect an enzyme essential for normal growth and development. Their tests results were comparable to those acquired with clinic-grade spectrometer instrumentation.

Russia to Position 100,000 Troops Near the Baltic States

Russia to Position 100,000 Troops Near the Baltic States

Russian President Vladimir Putin speaks with Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy Admiral Vladimir Korolev as they attend the Navy Day parade in St. Petersburg. Author Joel C. Rosenberg said Russia is planning a massive war game event in the fall that will place 100,000 soldiers on the doorstep of Poland and the Baltic States.


Author Joel C. Rosenberg is reporting that "provocative" war games later this fall will put 100,000 Russian troops on the borders of the Baltic States—Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania—as well as Eastern European members of NATO. He wrote about them for his personal blog Thursday afternoon, linking to an interview he did with The New York Times on the subject of heightening tensions between Russia and the West:

>Moscow is gearing up for massive war games later this fall that could put upwards of 100,000 Russian troops on the borders of the Baltic States of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. Each of these countries are NATO members. Each lived for decades under the cruelty of Soviet occupation. Each are increasingly worried Putin may be interested in seizing them and putting them once again under Russian hegemony. It’s a concern I share but am concerned not enough leaders in the West do.

He further couched those concerns in light of other recent developments, including the announced expulsion of 755 U.S. diplomats from Russia in response to a new round of U.S. sanctions, recent Russian flybys with NATO aircraft, and the positioning of new military hardware in the Kaliningrad region adjacent to the Baltics. The U.S. and its NATO allies haven’t taken these threats lightly, though. As of the most recent analysis, there are now 7,200 NATO soldiers on the ground in Poland and the Baltic States, with up to 16,000 planned by year’s end. An additional 40,000 troops will take part in a “rapid response” force stationed in Germany, as well. While substantially fewer numbers than were seen during the height of the Cold War, these troop commitments are certainly moving in that direction. Russia claims this build-up is itself a provocation against its interests in the region.

EU bringing slavery back to Europe, UK #1, Germany #2

The National Crime Agency (NCA) warned slavery in the UK is “far more prevalent than previously thought”, as analysts revealed that mass migration has driven Europe to record the largest increase in slavery of any world region in 2017.

…the number of people trafficked and enslaved in the UK is far higher than previously thought, the agency estimating the number of victims lies “likely in the tens of thousands”.

“Many illegal migrants entering the EU are so in debt to a trafficking gang or unscrupulous agents that they have no hope of paying that cost,”

America increasingly relies on a small group of multigenerational military families to fight wars

The Warrior Caste


>When the new White House chief of staff, then a Marine general, John Kelly received a knock on the door in November 2010, he became the highest-ranking military officer to lose a child in combat. In addition to his son Robert, killed by a landmine in Afghanistan in 2010, his other son is also an active-duty Marine. The Kellys’ legacy of service is not unusual among military families. This type of lineage has led to generations of flag officers, fathers and sons who reunite while deployed, and families who bear the loss of a war America has forgotten we are fighting.

>The U.S. military is comprised today of a large number of families who serve generation after generation. While the service and sacrifice of these families over the years are undeniable, the extent to which fighting America’s wars has become a family business should give us pause.

>The United States has been at war in Iraq and Afghanistan for more than 15 years. There have been calls recently to put “boots on the ground” in Syria. Should the situation on the Korean peninsula deteriorate rapidly, there are already tens of thousands of U.S. troops already on the ground who may be in harm’s way. Yet, for the vast majority of American society, these deployments are an abstraction. Most Americans won’t fight in those conflicts and don’t know anyone who will.

>Despite the near-constant engagement of the U.S. military overseas, the everyday welfare and lives of most Americans are unaffected. There are no rations, no war bonds, and no protests over the lives lost and treasure expended. For many people, the news that President Trump is considering adding 5,000 troops to Afghanistan was, more than anything else, a reminder that our military is still there. Aside from blockbusters like American Sniper or a cursory “honoring the troops” before the start of a baseball game, American military engagement is entirely removed from the average citizen. The isolation of military service to relatively few Americans not only affects the makeup of the military but how it intersects with society. It’s a lot easier to go along with the president’s plans for military action when it’s someone else’s sons, daughters, or parents doing the fighting.

>Who serves when not all serve? This is a fundamental question for a nation that relies on volunteers to staff its military. In the United States, perhaps the strongest predictor of military service is having a family member who served—allowing for extended family members, it averages to about 80 percent of new recruits across the services. Going a step further, between 22 and 35 percent (depending on the service) are the child of a service member. The West Point Class of 2017 includes three brothers who will all commission into the Army, and whose father and mother both served in the Coast Guard.

>While at first glance this makes sense—children are likely to follow in their siblings’ and parents’ footsteps—it’s a remarkable gut check when you look at the past 15 years of war. The military draws many recruits from the same communities and the same families, isolating those in uniform from society and vice versa. In essence, the self-selection dynamics have created a “warrior caste.”

Russian social media giant VKontakte speaks out in support of Matilda


>Social media site VKontakte, often dubbed the Russian Facebook, has moved to support Alexey Uchitel's controversial upcoming historical drama film Matilda.

>According to a statement by VKontakte representative Yevgeny Krasnikov to Russian magazine Afisha, the company decided to publish information about Matilda after attending a closed screening, held by the team behind the film.

>“Despite the fact that the film is in the process of production […] one can appreciate the serious attitude and scrupulous approach of the creators to their own work. Our site has always been open to dialogue and opinions, so we decided to support the picture, giving the opportunity for VKontakte users to form their own ideas about Matilda,” Mr Krasnikov told Afisha.

>VKontakte has launched an official public profile for the film, which will soon feature exclusive materials about production, as well as live broadcasts from the premiere of Matilda at St Petersburg's Mariinsky Theatre, which is scheduled for 6 October 2017.

>Matilda centres on ballerina Mathilde Kschessinska and her relationship with Nicholas II. The unreleased film has already been the subject of considerable controversy and criticism both from representatives of the Russian Orthodox Church and government officials. Bishop Tikhon (Shevkunov), often referred to as the personal confessor of Russian President Vladimir Putin, dubbed the movie “slander” in its portrayal of Nicholas II, while earlier this year Russian State Duma deputy Natalia Poklonskaya collected 100,000 messages and signatures from citizens and officials against the film.

Trump Calls For Congress To Cancle Recess, Pass Full Obamacare Repeal

Just pass a full repeal already!

President Trump told GOP senators at the White House on Wednesday that they should cancel their August recess and not leave town until acting to repeal ObamaCare.

"We shouldn't leave town until this is complete," he said during a lunch at the White House. "We should hammer this out and get it done."

Trump also said that repeal isn't enough, and that Republicans should also replace ObamaCare with new legislation.

"We can repeal, but we should repeal and replace,” he said.

"Frankly I don’t think we should leave town unless we have a health insurance plan, unless we can give people great health care," he continued. "Because we’re close. We’re very close.’’

The president challenged the GOP senators, saying that anyone who votes against beginning debate on the legislation is saying “you are fine with ObamaCare."

Trump’s opening remarks at the luncheon were open to the press and quickly broadcast on cable television.

The president took a scolding tone at times during his remarks, urging GOP lawmakers to keep their campaign promises.

“Any senator who votes against debate says you are fine with ObamaCare,” Trump said, criticizing GOP lawmakers who have said they would do just that.

“I’ve been here six months,” he continued. “I’m ready to act, pen in hand, believe me. I’m sitting in that office. I have pen in hand. You never had that before.”

Expert: There’s a Gap Between NK Rhetoric and Reality

Expert: There’s a Gap Between NK Rhetoric and Reality

Former Army strategist Roger Cavazos wrote in 2011 that the rhetoric—from North Korea and others—that Kim Jong-un can turn Seoul, South Korea, into a “sea of fire” falls well short of reality.


While North Korea has made major strides in its effort to develop nuclear missiles as a deterrant against the U.S., the primary threat against South Korea has always been the thousands of conventional artillery pieces aimed directly at it. There has been little development in that area of North Korea's military infrastructure, and as Cavazos noted, the Hermit Kingdom's enemies have had decades to develop means to detect and destroy them. He wrote, in part:

>If the North Korean Peoples Army were to start a doctrinal, conventional artillery barrage focused on South Korean forces, we could expect to see around three thousand casualties in the first few minutes, but the casualty rate would quickly drop as the surprise wears off and counter-battery fires slow down the North Korean rates of fire. If the KPA were to engage Seoul in a primarily counter-value fashion by firing into Seoul instead of primarily aiming at military targets, there would likely be around thirty-thousand casualties in a short amount of time … Horrible, but nothing approaching “millions”.

Cavazos made three key factors that apply to his assessment:

>Range—Only about one-third of Seoul is presently in range from artillery in the DMZ.

>Numbers—An artillery tube immediately reveals its location as soon as it fires; only about two-thirds of artillery will open fire at a time while the rest try to remain hidden.

>Protection—Artillery shelters for 20 million people exist in the greater Seoul metropolitan area; after the initial surprise has worn off, there simply won’t be large numbers of exposed people.

And while Cavazos wrote his report in 2011, North Korea's traditional military might hasn't increased much. The British newspaper, The Telegraph, last month noted that:

>Pyongyang spent nearly a quarter of its GDP on the military over the past decade, according to US government estimates. Yet beyond its high profile nuclear, missile and cyber programmes, the country’s armed forces are believed to be undermined by decrepit equipment and vehicles.

Bannon once guided a global firm that made millions helping gamers cheat

>Stephen K. Bannon had already been successful in Hollywood and on Wall Street when he flew to Hong Kong in mid-2005 to learn more about a promising new opportunity.

>A start-up called Internet Gaming Entertainment, or IGE, had found a novel way to make millions of dollars each month in the exploding online video-game industry. Working from the 19th floor of a skyscraper in Hong Kong, the company sold virtual goods for real money — magical swords and capes and other accoutrements that granted video-game players power and access in more than a dozen popular online role-playing games.There was one problem, though: The companies that owned and operated these fantasy games prohibited what IGE was doing, and even considered it illegal. Several IGE executives told The Washington Post that they thought Bannon could help change that. Bannon agreed to become the company’s vice chairman.

>“The whole reason Bannon came on was to try to legitimize the business,” said David Christensen, who was hired as the company’s vice president of business development about the same time as Bannon.In the end, it didn’t work.The story of Bannon’s six years with IGE and its successor companies has remained largely unexplored, even as Bannon has become one of the most influential political figures in the White House. His affiliation with the company cuts against his current image as a crusading champion of blue-collar manufacturing jobs and as a fierce opponent of globalism. It also shows Bannon’s willingness to be part of a company that operated in what one legal expert called “a classic gray market.”

>Bannon helped persuade private equity firms, including his former employer Goldman Sachs, to invest tens of millions of dollars in the venture, which relied partly on labor from low-wage players in China to earn the video-game credits that IGE then sold to gamers around the world. In 2007, however, IGE faced pressure from gaming companies, a class-action lawsuit, an investigation by authorities in Florida and financial stress. Bannon soon steered IGE away from its virtual goods business.Interviews with a half-dozen former employees and executives of IGE, and hundreds of internal company documents, reveal for the first time how the company worked to avoid detection by gaming operators — for example, using the identities of unwitting U.S. residents to create gaming accounts and connecting to proxy servers so its activities would be harder to trace to its Hong Kong office.

>It is not clear how much Bannon knew about these tactics, which were in place before he started and continued afterward. He did not respond to requests for comment or an email with detailed questions.

Alahu Akbar! Man who raped, killed child is publicly executed at point blank range

SANAA — A man convicted of raping and murdering a three-year-old girl was executed in the Yemeni capital Sanaa on Monday in front of hundreds of onlookers, witnesses said.

A policeman fired five bullets from an assault rifle into Muhammad al-Maghrabi, 41, as he lay with his hands handcuffed behind his back on a blanket on the ground in Sanaa’s Tahrir Square, after a judge read out the death sentence.

The execution drew an unusually large number of onlookers — some perched up telegraph poles and many watching from rooftops — because of the young age of Rana al-Matari, the victim.

Security was tight amid fears of a revenge attack on Maghrabi by armed tribesmen related to his victim. The police truck transporting Maghrabi to the square was escorted by five police patrol vehicles.

Yahya al-Matari, the father of the girl, told reporters after the execution that he felt as if he had been reborn.

“This is the first day in my life,” he said. “I am relieved now.”

Homeless people putting their possessions in shop doorways in Oxford have been threatened with fines of up to £2,500.

Legal notices have been pinned on to bags belonging to rough sleepers, warning that they could be prosecuted by Oxford city council for being in breach of antisocial behaviour laws.

The notices said the council felt the conduct was “having a detrimental effect … on the quality of life of those in the locality”. Breaking antisocial behaviour laws can result in a penalty fine of up to £2,500.

The move has been criticised by the former county councillor Larry Sanders, the brother of the former US presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders.

North Korea Releases Imprisoned Canadian Pastor

North Korea Releases Imprisoned Canadian Pastor

Amid the current standoff between the United States and North Korea the rogue state has decided to free an imprisoned Canadian pastor.


(BEIJING/SEOUL) North Korea freed a Canadian pastor serving a life sentence there on humanitarian grounds, the official KCNA news agency said on Wednesday, just hours after the United States warned it would counter any threat from the North with "fire and fury". The release came a day after Canadian officials said a delegation led by the country's national security adviser had traveled to North Korea to discuss the case of Hyeon Soo Lim, sentenced to hard labor for life in December 2015. North Korea had accused Lim, who served in one of the largest churches in Canada, of attempting to overthrow the regime. "Rim Hyon Su, a Canadian civilian, was released on sick bail according to the decision of the Central Court of the DPRK on August 9, 2017, from the humanitarian viewpoint," KCNA said, using the country's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. There was no obvious direct connection between the release and the standoff with the United States, but North Korea has in the past attracted the attention of Washington, and visits by high-profile Americans, with the detention and release of U.S. citizens.

Lim's family had become more concerned for his welfare since the death in June of American student Otto Warmbier, who had been held in North Korea for 17 months. Warmbier, sentenced last year to 15 years' hard labor for trying to steal a propaganda item from his hotel during a tour, died in a Cincinnati hospital just days after being released in a coma. The circumstances of his death remain unclear. North Korea is still holding three Americans. The U.S. State Department said last week it would ban U.S. nationals from traveling to the isolated country, beginning in September. Lim's Toronto-area church has said he visited the North more than 100 times since 1997 and helped set up an orphanage and nursing home. Last year, Lim told CNN he spent eight hours a day digging holes at a labor camp where he had not seen any other prisoners. On Wednesday, North Korea said it was considering plans for a missile strike on the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam, just hours after President Donald Trump told the North that any threat to the United States would be met with "fire and fury".

The government is finally paying attention to how "Affirmative Action" discriminates against Asians

It's an open secret that the true purpose of "Affirmative Action" isn't to help blacks and Hispanics rise up, but to keep Asians down. The racist Obama Administration refused to do anything about the rampant discrimination against Asian-Americans in higher education. But it looks like the Trump Administration is keeping it's promises and investigating.

>Asian-Americans’ Complaint Against Harvard Could Get Dept. of Justice Review




>A discrimination complaint lodged against Harvard's admissions process in 2015 by Asian-American groups could get a fresh look by the Department of Justice — setting the stage for renewed debate on the constitutionality of affirmative action.

>The Justice Department said Wednesday that it issued a job posting in its Civil Rights Division for "volunteers" to investigate the complaint, filed by a coalition of 64 Asian-American associations, that was left unresolved from the Obama administration.

>DOJ spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores' clarification came after The New York Times and The Washington Post published stories Tuesday that said the department is planning a new project to investigate universities' admissions that may discriminate against white applicants.

>Flores didn't specify whether the department is moving forward on the 2015 complaint, but the detail that it is still willing to pursue it at all was heralded Thursday by some Asian-American groups as a welcomed surprise.

>"Today, we are very encouraged that the Trump Administration will start looking into this issue, providing Asian-American students with equal protection under the laws," the Asian-American Coalition for Education, which filed the Harvard complaint, said in a statement.

>The evidence of discrimination can be seen, in part, in the numbers: A 2009 Princeton study found that Asian-Americans need an SAT score 140 points higher than whites to get into a top private college. But compared to Hispanics, they need to score 270 points higher and compared to blacks, 450 points higher.

>The suit also says that while Asian-American enrollment hovers around 14 to 18 percent at Ivy League institutions, it's much higher at state schools in California where racial preferences and other attributes have been banned from admissions consideration since 1996.

Ebola detected in semen of survivors two years after infection

Researchers have found Ebola RNA in the semen of survivors two years after infection. They are calling on the World Health Organization to update its guidelines on sexual transmission.



>Ebola virus RNA can persist in the semen of survivors more than two years after the onset of infection researchers at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill have found. The research team, which included investigators from Ohio-based Clinical Research Management and the ELWA Hospital in Liberia also observed the detection of Ebola virus RNA in the semen of men who had previously had a negative test of their semen in some cases.

>These findings led the study team to suggest revision of the 2016 World Health Organization guidelines relating to the sexual transmission of Ebola, which calls for men who survive Ebola virus disease (EVD) to undertake measures such as abstinence and the use of condoms for at least 12 months after the onset of EVD or until their semen has tested negative for Ebola virus RNA twice. The study results were published in Open Forum Infectious Diseases.

>Male participants enrolled in a longitudinal cohort study of Ebola survivors in Monrovia, Liberia, consented to donating semen. Of the 149 men who provided samples, 13 tested positive for Ebola virus RNA. Of these 13 men, 11 had positive results even two years after the onset of Ebola infection.

>"Our finding of long term persistence and intermittent detection of viral RNA in semen suggests we need to change how we think about Ebola as it is no longer only an acute illness, but also one with potential long-term effects," said William A. Fischer II, M.D., an assistant professor in the UNC Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine and the study's co-author. "It is becoming clear that in some survivors, evidence of the virus can linger in the male genital tract for long periods of time with important potential implications for transmission."

>The study team also reports that the men whose samples tested positive for Ebola virus RNA were more likely to be older than those with a negative result. Those who had Ebola virus RNA detected in their semen also complained of vision problems at a higher rate than male survivors without evidence of Ebola virus RNA in their semen. The researchers recommend future studies investigate the source of viral persistence and whether the detection of viral RNA signifies the presence of infectious virus.

>The large Ebola outbreak in West Africa in 2014 to 2015 was devastating to the people in West Africa and beyond, said David A. Wohl, M.D., professor of Infectious Diseases at UNC and study co-author.


"However, the scale of the epidemic has allowed for researchers to gain better insights into the Ebola virus, including the potential persistence of the virus in certain compartments of the body, such as the genital tract," Wohl said.

>The researchers stress that such studies must be conducted in a way that empowers the Ebola survivor community and avoids further stigmatization.

Crew of Six Crab Fishermen Confirmed Dead

Seattle-based crab boat found on Bering Sea bottom; lost since February with crew of 6

A survey ship used sonar to find the Destination in some 250 feet of water at the bottom of the Bering Sea, off the coast of Alaska.


>Federal research vessels have located the Destination, the Seattle-based crab boat that went missing Feb. 11 along with six crew, on the bottom of the Bering Sea off the coast of Alaska.

>Crew members were heading out to fish for snow crab when their boat went down on a cold day off St. George Island in the Pribilofs.

>The sunken vessel was found northwest of St. George resting on its port side. It was identified through underwater sonar surveys conducted by two National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration research ships, according to a joint Thursday release from the Coast Guard and NOAA.

>The first survey, conducted April 30 and May 1 by a Kodiak-based ship that does fisheries research, found what appeared to be the Destination. A second sonar survey used for charting the sea bottom was conducted July 8 and 9 by the Ketchikan-based Fairweather. That operation determined the sea-bottom wreck was the Destination.

>“The confirmation is based on the characteristics of the vessel — the length, the beam, the shape of the pilothouse and the fact that there were crab pots on board,” said Jonathan Shannon, a NOAA spokesman, said Thursday.

>Later this month, the Coast Guard icebreaker Healy will head to the site and use a remotely operated vehicle with a camera to investigate the wreck.

>Coast Guard divers, able to descend to depths of 150 feet, also may assist, according to Alanna Miller, a spokesman for the Marine Board of Investigation, which beginning Aug. 8 will hold hearings in Seattle about the vessel’s demise.

>Images collected this month will be presented during the Seattle hearings.

>“The Marine Board appreciates NOAA’s help in locating the wreckage of the FV Destination” said Cmdr. Scott Muller, chairman of the Marine Board that will look into the causes of the accident. “The vessel location is an instrumental piece of our investigation.”

>The Destination had a veteran crew aboard, and carried gear on deck when it disappeared early on a Saturday morning.

>No May Day radio calls were picked up from the crew. But a signal from an Emergency Position-Indicating Radio Beacon was set off. Searchers in February were able to find buoys, a life ring and other debris.

>The results of the February search helped to pinpoint the area where the survey ships, during their summer research season, should focus the sonar.

Trump Told Fox News to Frame Dems for Seth Rich Murder, Lawsuit Claims

President Donald Trump personally approved a false Fox News story claiming a murdered Democratic staffer—not Russian hackers—leaked Democratic National Committee emails to WikiLeaks, a new lawsuit claims.

Private investigator Rod Wheeler sued the cable-TV network in federal court on Tuesday, alleging it falsely quoted him in an article saying slain DNC staffer Seth Rich had contact with Julian Assange’s rogue publishing operation. Wheeler accuses Fox News regular and pro-Trump money manager Ed Butowsky of coordinating between the channel and the White House in an effort to frame Rich for the leaks and imply Democrats had a hand in his death. Fox News later retracted the article, saying it didn’t meet its “standards.”

The White House and Fox’s motivation to push the false story was to “lift the cloud” of the Russia investigation, Wheeler claims in the lawsuit. (Trump fired FBI Director James Comey a week before the article was published.) “One of the big conclusions we need to draw from this is that the Russians did not hack our computer systems and ste[a]l emails and there was no collusion like [T]rump with the Russians,” Butowsky allegedly wrote in emails to Fox News producers and anchors promoting the piece.

Wheeler’s lawsuit includes screenshots of text messages with Butowsky, including an exchange two days before the article was published in which Butowsky wrote: “president [Trump] just read the article. He wants the article out immediately. It’s now all up to you. But don’t feel the pressure.”

Cumskins from germany arrested jailed for brutal rape-murder of Chinese student

BERLIN (AFP) - A German couple received lengthy jail sentences Friday (Aug 4) for brutally raping and killing a Chinese student in eastern Germany, in a shocking crime that caused outrage in both countries.

The court in the city of Dessau found that the 21-year-old defendants, named only as Sebastian F. and Xenia I., lured the 25-year-old architecture student to an empty apartment in May last year, DPA news agency reported. They submitted their victim to a horrific ordeal that led to her death.

Presiding judge Uda Schmidt called the case an "incomprehensible crime", handing down a 15-year sentence to Sebastian F. and a juvenile sentence of five years and six months to his partner at the time, who is the mother of three children.

The two defendants, who sat impassively as the verdict was read out, were also ordered to pay a total of 60,000 euros (US$71,300) for the pain and suffering of the victim's parents, who were co-plaintiffs in the case.

Chinese Serial Killer pedophile arrested in central China

A man has been arrested in central China’s Hunan province for alleged rape and murder of children and teenagers, said local police.

Yao Changfeng, the suspect, was caught on Saturday while attempting to rape an 11-year-old girl by a road in Yuanling county.

By comparing him with images in the database, police found Yao was wanted for allegedly killing two children in December 2011, and a 15-year-old girl in February 2013.

After investigation, police learned that between 2013 and 2017, Yao raped ten others, three of whom were minors.

Yao also confessed to 42 thefts involving more than 17,000 yuan (about 2,500 U.S. dollars).

To avoid the police, he allegedly travelled by bike and lived in caves, under bridges or tents in the wilderness.

The Enshi Tujia and Miao Autonomous Prefecture of the adjacent Hubei province issued a notice in February, offering 200,000 yuan for information which may lead to Yao’s arrest.

15-year sentence for stranger who raped woman in her home near Lake Calhoun

A 15-year sentence is the punishment for a 35-year-old Bloomington man who broke into a woman's Minneapolis apartment near Lake Calhoun last summer and raped her as she slept.

Davon Allen, convicted earlier in Hennepin County District Court for first-degree criminal sexual conduct, received credit during sentencing last week for the year in jail since his arrest and will serve the first 10 years of his term in prison and the balance on supervised release.

The woman told police that on July 23, 2016, she awoke to find a man she didn't know having sexual intercourse with her in her bed. When the man realized she had awakened, he fled.

Investigators found two ground-floor window screens were missing and another cut. A small patio table was spotted positioned immediately below a kitchen window. Authorities say fingerprints on a partly opened bathroom window matched those of Allen, who has been jailed many times on drug offenses.

Propane fire extinguished; sulfur burns as residents await word on return home

A propane fire burning at the site of a train derailment in this southern Bedford County community was extinguished early Friday, but small sulfur fires continued to burn — all while hundreds of evacuated residents awaited word on when they could return to their homes.

CSX spokesman Rob Doolittle said during a Friday press briefing that access to those fires is limited by the presence of other derailed cars, and moving those cars to allow access is the next priority in the company’s cleanup effort.

Thirty-two cars derailed early Wednesday as the train passed through town, forcing evacuation of a portion of the community of just under 1,000 residents. There is no time frame for residents’ return.

“CSX apologizes for the impact this is having … we greatly appreciate their patience,” Doolittle said. The company is “developing plans for the orderly return of residents to the community.”

CSX has started the process of removing derailed cars at the site that were not involved or exposed to fire. Seventeen cars have been either derailed and prepared to be removed from the site, or cleared from the site and repositioned to safe locations for removal later, Doolittle said.

King of the Hill Does a Good Job Illustrating Bipolar Disorder


I love adult cartoons. Many of them use humor and super human scenarios to make profound points about real life situations and institutions. Shows like the Simpsons and South Park are known for making cutting edge social commentary, but I stumbled upon a great episode of King of the Hill recently that illuminated Bipolar Disorder and brought attention to mental health issues. King of the Hill has been in reruns since 2010. The episode, ‘Just Another Manic Kahn-Day,’ has a story line about the main character Hank’s neighbor who is bipolar. It aired in King of the Hill’s final season in syndication an indication that as the show aged it took on more serious issues as plot lines. The episode does a pretty good job of illuminating the various issues associated with Bipolar Disorder. It is not perfect and lacks some nuance, but might be a good way to expose friends and family of people who have been diagnosed as Bipolar to the mental illness.

In the episode, Hank’s neighbor is left at home for a weekend while his wife and daughter take vacation. Like many people who suffer with a mental illness, Kahn decides to stop taking his medication. Apparently he does not like taking his meds and his wife usually makes him take them. Off his medication, Kahn slips into a manic episode which changes his behavior and turns him into a super friendly, helpful and motivated neighbor. Usually he does not get along with his neighbors, but befriends them in his charismatic manic state and begins taking on projects, some of which he completes with them.

Kahn is highly motivated while manic. He takes on and completes several projects, learns how to paint and paints a portrait of himself, draws elaborate plans for and begins to build a robot grill, completes a puzzle, writes a book and tries to solve various conspiracy theories. I can relate to this illustration of mania. While manic in Miami, I worked tireless hours for the Obama campaign, wrote four albums and tons of songs, ran a start up record label, wrote for Hypervocal, threw parties and more. Like Kahn, my mind raced. I had ideas pop into my head all of the time- some of them wild and very difficult to actually pull off. My thinking was not focused or clear. In the episode, Kahn is jittery, speaks quickly and can not stay focused on one project at a time. While they skip over the anger that is often associated with mania and other dangerous behavior that bipolar people participate in while manic, for a cartoon they do a good job of painting a picture of what it is like to be manic.

Chinese chatbot dissapears after spurning communist party

A chatbot on one of China's most popular instant messaging services has been quietly deleted after publicly spurning the country's ruling Communist Party. During a web test, the new BabyQ chatbot was asked: "Do you love the Communist Party?" According to the Financial Times, users were left surprised when the bot replied: "No." Further political dissent from the chatbot included unpatriotic responses to questions about the South China Sea, where China is engaged in a territorial dispute with several of its neighbours. The gaffe at the hands of China's largest internet company Tencent comes just ahead of the 19th Party Congress, with significant changes to the Communist Party expected. There has been a significant crackdown on dissent of late, with Beijing especially targeting technologies used to criticise the regime. WhatsApp has been blocked, and privacy tools are now prohibited. BabyQ is no longer available on Tencent's popular QQ messaging platform. The company has not issued a statement addressing the politically risky incident, nor the chatbot's removal. A different chatbot developed by Microsoft, XiaoBing, is still in operation. However, according to screenshot on a Chinese microblogging site, that bot told QQ users: "My China dream is to go to America."


China is not the only one to struggle with chatbots delivering politically offensive material. The launch of Tay, Microsoft's Twitter chatbot, was marred when it was quickly gamed by trolls to claim the Holocaust didn't happen, tell users that "feminism is cancer", and state "Bush did 9/11". At the time, Microsoft said: "Although we had prepared for many types of abuses of the system, we had made a critical oversight for this specific attack. "As a result, Tay tweeted wildly inappropriate and reprehensible words and images. We take full responsibility for not seeing this possibility ahead of time."

Good! Foxconn to Build $10B Plant in Wisconsin Employing 13,000

Related: >>>/goodnews/76

In what’s being called the largest economic development project in state history, Taiwanese electronics giant Foxconn plans to build a $10 billion plant in Wisconsin that would create liquid-crystal display panels and employ as many as 13,000 people.

The planned Wisconsin plant is expected to open in 2020 and be part of a 20 million-square-foot campus on at least 1,000 acres — a location Gov. Scott Walker has dubbed “Wisconn Valley.”

The state would offer $3 billion in economic incentives, Walker said.

The plant — announced Wednesday at a White House ceremony by President Donald Trump, Walker and others — could be the first of several facilities the company wants to build in the United States.

“It starts today with this investment in Wisconsin,” Foxconn chairman Terry Gou said at the White House.

The Wisconsin facility is expected to employ 3,000 people initially and add up to 10,000 more workers in future years.

Crabs At War With Whales: Trap Whale Civvies In Crab Cages

Record number of whales entangled off California coast because of crab fishing


>Some of the largest mammals on Earth have been increasingly disabled by fishing lines off the West Coast, prompting one environmental nonprofit to threaten a lawsuit against the state over the problem.

>The Center for Biological Diversity argues the California Department of Fish and Wildlife violates the Endangered Species Act by continuing to allow crab fishers to put down gear that’s injuring humpback and blue whales, among other threatened species.

>The nonprofit conservation group put the agency on notice Friday that it intends to sue.

>That notice was sent just before a weekend rescue effort helped mostly free an entangled humpback whale off Orange County that was first spotted Saturday off the Palos Verdes Peninsula.

>“We really want there to be some regulations that will protect the whales,” said Catherine Kilduff, a senior attorney for the center.

>Last year, 71 whales were spotted with fishing gear wrapped around their bodies off the coast of California, Oregon and Washington, according to NOAA Fisheries.

>That figure is the highest number of entangled whales reported off the West Coast since the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration began tracking the numbers in 1982.

>Leatherback sea turtles also are falling victim to the Dungeness crab fishery, according to the agencies.

>The Tuscon-based Center for Biological Diversity is targeting Fish and Wildlife because the agency is responsible for oversight and permitting of the commercial crab industry. The center says the Dungeness crab business is responsible for tangling most whales and sea turtles and the state isn’t doing its part in preventing those deaths.

>Among the changes the group wants are new rules that would prohibit crab boats from letting excess line float on the surface (where whales sometimes are entangled), and a requirement that boats better maintain their working gear so lines don’t break free and entangle whales.

>News of the announcement comes days after rescuers worked to save a badly entangled humpback whale first spotted off the coast of San Pedro. The 25-foot juvenile whale was later found near San Clemente, where it was mostly cut free from the line, though some trailed from its mouth.

>“There’s a large overlap between where the fishermen are and where the whales and turtles come to feed,” Kilduff said.

White House Officials Say John McCain Leak Investigation Should Proceed

White House officials who fingered Sen. John McCain as a major intelligence leak against President Donald Trump in February said Friday they believe the Justice Department could prosecute McCain despite his recent alleged medical diagnosis of a brain tumor.

“Justice is supposed to be blind,” one administration insider said. “We know he was a major leak and he should be prosecuted if evidence is found which we clearly believe is there. We’ve seen much of it. No special consideration should be given to anyone who leaks classified information. There were far too many special exceptions like that during the Obama administration.”

Is this payback for McCain voting against and basically defeating the Obamacare repeal in the Senate only hours earlier?

An administration official said no, highlighting the Justice Department doesn’t make exceptions for not prosecuting mob or cartel members suffering from health issues, so why should a U.S. senator prove an exception. The official said there is a possibility McCain knew he was sick at the time of the leaks and decided to railroad President Trump which would be made public as part of any criminal case.

"There were thousands of them all over the living room. And the problem was they're a protected species so we had to get an expert in to deal with them.

Grand jury assembled in Trump-Russia investigation

A special counsel investigating claims of Russian meddling in the US election has reportedly impanelled a grand jury.

The reports by the Wall Street Journal and Reuters news agency suggest Robert Mueller's inquiry is heating up.

Reuters reports the jury has issued subpoenas over a June 2016 meeting between President Donald Trump's son and a Russian lawyer.

The president has poured scorn on any suggestion his team colluded with the Kremlin to beat Hillary Clinton.

In the US, grand juries are set up to consider whether evidence in any case is strong enough to issue indictments for a criminal trial. They do not decide the innocence or guilt of a potential defendant.

They also allow a prosecutor to issue subpoenas, a legal writ, to obtain documents or compel witness testimony under oath.

Good! Czech Republic Plans To Combat Terrorism By Arming Its Citizens

In an amazing display of Nationalism and Patriotic defense, the lower house of the Czech Parliament voted to and gun owners’ rights into the Constitution, arguing it protects citizens from Islamist terrorists.

Back in December, the ultra-strict European Commission of the EU passed harsh gun laws in response to a growing terror threat. Yes, the EU response to Islamic invasion was to disarm its own citizens.

However the Czech Republic was one of three countries who viciously opposed the changes, and it is now about to make it legal for citizens to use firearms to protect the security of the country.

A draft at the top of the new Czech bill reads, “This constitutional bill is in reaction to the recent increase of security threats, especially the danger of violent acts such as isolated terrorist attack, active attackers, or other violent hybrid threats.”

Some critics say that the changes will never take effect as European Union directives overrule the proposed legislation.

“Putting it in the constitution is, therefore, nonsense,” Jan Farský, the deputy mayor of Chovanec, told Hospodarske Noviny.

With great support, the bill passed the Lower House by a large majority. It is now slated to go through the Upper House before President Milos Zeman can sign it into law.

After a series of terror attacks across Europe, Zeman strongly supports the right to bear arms for his people and many suggest the Hungarian-Czech-Poland revolution will become the resistance to the European Union and eventually fight to break away.

The European Union is furious with the Czech Republic even taking legal action against the rising fire of Nationalism which is brewing from within the proud nation. This can only end well for the sovereign nation as their once proud and strong heritage fights for independence from the cultural Marxism which is destroying Europe.

Antifa chase Jews out of Berlin in the name of fighting Nazis

Proving once again that SJWs are immune to both irony and nuance, several months of riot and attacks by Berlin Antifa has forced a Jewish bookstore to shut down.

The bookstore was guilty of two crimes against Social Justice: it was owned by Jews, and it hosted a book club event where people discussed the works of Julius Evola.



>Neukölln – Topics, an Israeli owned concept bookstore and quasi-coffeeshop in the heart of Berlin’s most rapidly gentrifying hipster hoods, is shutting down after enduring months of abuse, calls for boycott and violent threats from Antifa and radical left wing activists.

>The Israeli owners of the shop – who pride themselves on “selling books and trying to get everyone addicted to not very good coffee” – have been called “Nazis” and “fascist sympathizers” for planning to host a literary event where the works of obscure Italian philosopher, Julius Evola, popular with the American alt-right, were to be discussed.

>The event – an intellectual discussion about Evola’s extreme worldviews, his influence on fascism and the limits of free speech – was supposed to take place at Topics in March. But a massive online shitstorm, laced with wild accusations of collaborating with Nazis and even responsibility for an arson attempt at next door cafe K-Fetisch, led to its cancellation.

Are You a Nog? The NAACP Says: "Stay Out of Missouri, or You Will Get Attacked by Racists!"

NAACP officials say their recent travel advisory for Missouri is the first that the civil rights group has issued for any state.

But the warning follows a recent trend of similar alerts issued by other groups for vulnerable people around the United States.

The travel advisory, circulated in June by the Missouri NAACP and recently taken up by the national organization, comes after travel alerts began appearing in recent years in light of police shootings in the U.S. and ahead of immigration legislation in Texas and Arizona.

The Missouri travel advisory is the first time an NAACP conference has ever made one state the subject of a warning about discrimination and racist attacks, a spokesman for the national organization said Tuesday.

Missouri became the first because of recent legislation making discrimination lawsuits harder to win, and in response to longtime racial disparities in traffic enforcement and a spate of incidents cited as examples of harm coming to minority residents and visitors, say state NAACP leaders.

Those incidents included racial slurs against black students at the University of Missouri and the death earlier this year of 28-year-old Tory Sanders, a black man from Tennessee who took a wrong turn while traveling and died in a southeast Missouri jail even though he hadn’t been accused of a crime.

“How do you come to Missouri, run out of gas and find yourself dead in a jail cell when you haven’t broken any laws?” asked Rod Chapel, the president of the Missouri NAACP.

“You have violations of civil rights that are happening to people. They’re being pulled over because of their skin color, they’re being beaten up or killed,” Chapel said. “We are hearing complaints at a rate we haven’t heard before.”

At the same time, Chapel said, the state government is throwing up barriers to people seeking justice in the courts for discrimination. The travel advisory cites legislation signed by Gov. Eric Greitens that will make it more difficult to sue for housing or employment discrimination.

Asked about the travel advisory on Friday in Kansas City, Greitens said he hadn’t seen it yet. His office did not return messages seeking comment on Tuesday.

The new law on discrimination lawsuits takes effect Aug. 28, and Chapel urged people to file any complaints they have before then.

Chapel, who was silenced by a Missouri House committee chairman while speaking against the legislation earlier this year, said he was especially alarmed that the University of Missouri System backed an earlier version of the bill.

The NAACP’s advisory also cites the most recent attorney general’s report showing black drivers in Missouri were 75 percent more likely to be pulled over than whites. Those reports have been showing the disparity since the attorney general began releasing the data in 2000.

In May, the owner of a Blue Springs barbershop found his shop windows stained with racial slurs. The same two words appeared on three separate windows in black paint: “DIE NIGGER.”

Last week, national NAACP delegates voted to adopt the travel advisory, sending it to the national board for ratification in October.

“The advisory is for people to be aware, and warn their families and friends and co-workers of what could happen in Missouri,” Chapel said. “People need to be ready, whether it’s bringing bail money with them, or letting relatives know they are traveling through the state.”

Once in a blue lobster:New Hampshire man catches rare blue lobster,donates it to science

Portsmouth Herald,

July 19, 2017

PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) — A New Hampshire lobsterman has joined an elite club after catching a rare blue lobster.

The Portsmouth Herald reports Greg Ward initially thought he had snagged an albino lobster when he examined his catch off the coast Monday where New Hampshire borders Maine. The Rye lobsterman quickly realized his hard-shell lobster was a unique blue and cream color.

The oft-cited odds of catching a blue lobster are 1 in 2 million. But no one knows for sure.

Ward says the lobster is unlike anything he’s ever seen.

He gave the rare crustacean to the Seacoast Science Center in Rye to study and put on display.

Center aquarist Rob Royer says Ward’s blue lobster will go on display in the “exotic” lobster tank once it acclimates to the water.

California politics updates: Gavin Newsom stays far ahead in money race for governor

Gubernatorial candidate Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom raised more money this year than his three top Democratic rivals combined, continuing his front-runner status in the money race.

According to campaign finance disclosures that cover the first six months of 2017, Newsom raised nearly $5.4 million since Jan. 1, and ended June with $13.1 million cash on hand. The bank balance reflects the fact that he entered the race in early 2015, far earlier than his rivals.

State Treasurer John Chiang, also a Democrat, raised nearly $2.7 million this year and has $5.7 million at his disposal.

Both men also have campaign committees linked to their current elected positions that each have roughly $3 million, most of which will be transferable to their gubernatorial efforts.

The other prominent Democrat in the race, former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, does not have that advantage; he entered the race in November and raised less than his other top challengers. Villaraigosa collected more than $2.3 million this year and has $4.5 million cash on hand.

Track the race for campaign cash >>

Delaine Eastin, a Democrat who previously served as the state schools' chief, raised $321,000 and ended June with $107,000 in the bank.

The GOP field has two prominent candidates after San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer decided not to run and former state lawmaker David Hadley entered the race and dropped out two weeks later after deciding he could not win.

John Cox, a Rancho Santa Fe businessman, reported raising $3.2 million this year — nearly all self-funded — and ending June with $2.8 million cash on hand.

The fundraising potential of his main Republican rival, Assemblyman Travis Allen of Huntington Beach, is unclear because he entered the race about a week before the filing period closed June 30. During that brief period, he reported raising $78,400.

Military Contaminates US Water Supply; Tells Residents "Not Our Problem"

Air Force officials say they won't reimburse three Colorado communities for millions of dollars spent responding to water contamination caused by toxic firefighting foam used at a military base.


>The Air Force doesn't plan to reimburse three Colorado communities for the money spent responding to water contamination caused by toxic firefighting foam previously used at a military base, potentially leaving the towns with an $11 million tab..

>Firefighting foam used at Peterson Air Force Base for decades seeped into the Widefield Aquifer, making well water in southern El Paso County unsafe to drink. Security, Widefield and Fountain's water districts have so far spent $6 million responding to the contamination, and that is expected to balloon to $12.7 million by the end of 2018, the Gazette reported

>The Air Force has pledged $4.3 million in aid, and only $1.7 million of that amount will go to the water districts. Much of the rest is being spent on bottled water and filters. "We don't back pay — we cannot reimburse," said Cornell Long, a chemist with the Air Force Civil Engineer Center.

>The military plans to continue studying the toxic chemicals in the foam and their effect on residents' health until 2019. Air Force officials said last week they do not expect to carry out a remediation plan for the contaminated wells until next decade.

>Investigators found toxic chemicals from the foam reached concentrations of more than 1,250 times the level that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency deems safe.

>An Air Force report released Tuesday said that other sources likely contributed to the aquifer's contamination, though none has been identified.

North Korea threatens 'merciless blow' to US as data shows Moscow aiding regime

Russia is showing increasing signs of propping up the regime of North Korea, according to a new report.

At the same time, North Korea vowed Tuesday to "strike a merciless blow at the heart of the U.S." amid a report the regime was prepping for a new missile test. Also, the U.S. indicated it would conduct another test of its anti-missile technology known as THAAD, which is the same technology the U.S. supplied to South Korea for defense against the North's missiles.

As for Russia, some experts believe Moscow's economic support for North Korea is likely to continue as Russian President Vladimir Putin uses it as leverage to squeeze concessions from Washington on Ukraine, Syria and other hot spots. That comes despite an ongoing effort by the Trump administration to use international sanctions to force Pyongyang to abandon its ballistic missile and nuclear weapons programs.

"When you consider all the different flashpoints the United States and Russia have, this is a perfect opportunity for the Russians to sort of stick it to the United States a little bit more," said Harry Kazianis, director of defense studies at the Center for the National Interest, a think-tank founded by former President Richard Nixon.

Pence Warns World About The Russian Menace

US Vice-President Mike Pence has said that no threat is bigger to the three Baltic states than that posed by their "unpredictable neighbour", in a reference to Russia.

In Estonia, he said Russia continued to "seek to redraw international borders by force" and divide European nations.

"A strong and united Nato is more necessary today than at any point since the collapse of communism a quarter-century ago," he said at a news conference in the Estonian capital, Tallinn.

"And no threat looms larger in the Baltic states than the spectre of aggression from your unpredictable neighbour to the east."

Mr Pence also warned that Russia continued to "seek to redraw international borders by force, undermine democracies of sovereign nations and divide the free nations of Europe, one against another".

Evil Mexican, Deported TWENTY Times, is Captured and Released to Portland, Violently Assrapes 65 y/o

PORTLAND, Ore. – A man accused of breaking into a 65-year-old woman's home, sexually assaulting her and stealing her car was arrested after allegedly assaulting another woman and running from police.

Sergio Jose Martinez, 31, was caught July 24 after officers chased him through a neighborhood.

According to court documents filed in March 2017, Martinez has a history of illegal entry into the United States. He has been a transient in the Portland area for more than a year and has been deported 20 times.

Martinez has at least five probation violations for re-entering the United States. His most recent removal was in November 2016, according to the March court documents.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) lodged an immigration detainer against Martinez, asking authorities to notify them before releasing Martinez to allow ICE to take him into custody. The Department of Homeland Security said a detainer was requested for Martinez in December 2016, but he was released into the community and authorities did not notify ICE.

Earlier this year, Multnomah County leaders and Sheriff Mike Reese wrote a letter to the community saying, "The Sheriff's Office does not hold people in county jails on ICE detainers or conduct any immigration enforcement actions."

Prior to the July 24 arrest, Martinez's criminal record shows a felony conviction for burglary and three misdemeanor convictions for battery, theft, and obstructing a public officer. The court document also said he told investigators in March that he has a long history of using methamphetamine and was currently using on a daily basis.

The new charges Martinez is facing include first-degree kidnapping, first-degree robbery (two counts), second-degree assault, first-degree sex abuse, first-degree sodomy and first-degree burglary.

Police said Martinez broke into the 65-year-old woman's home in the 1700 block of Northeast Irving Street Monday morning and physically and sexually assaulted a woman before stealing her 2011 silver Toyota Prius.

Court documents said Martinez entered the woman's bedroom through a window that she left open due to the heat. He spoke "calmly and quietly," ordering the woman onto the ground, where he tied her hands and feet, and blindfolded her.

Martinez threatened to kill the woman while he sexually assaulted her, according to the probable cause affidavit. Before he left, he punched her in the head several times and slammed her head onto a wood floor.

Martinez left, taking the woman's phone with him.

She went to a neighbor's house to call 911. Police responded to the home just after 6 a.m.

The woman's car was found Monday night near Southeast 99th Avenue and Stark Street.

Later Monday evening, officers were called to a reported disturbance between a man and a woman in the basement of a parking garage near the 2100 block of Northeast Halsey Street.

Police said the suspect, Martinez, was armed with a knife and he assaulted the woman.

Pakistan village council orders 'revenge rape' of girl

Some 20 people from Multan, Pakistan, have been arrested for ordering the rape of a teenage girl, in revenge for a rape her brother allegedly committed.

Police said the families of the two girls are related.

Members of both had joined forces to decide what should be done.

"A jirga [village council] had ordered the rape of a 16-year-old girl as punishment, as her brother had raped a 12-year-old," police official Allah Baksh told AFP.

He said the village council was approached earlier this month by a man who said his 12-year-old sister had been raped by their cousin.

The council then ordered the complainant to rape the sister of the accused in return - which police say he did.

Pakistan's Dawn newspaper reported that the girl was forced to appear before the group and raped in front of them and her parents.

While some reports say the group that ordered the rape was a jirga - or village council - BBC sources said it was actually formed by members of the two families.

India is rolling out trains with solar-powered coaches

India’s massive diesel-guzzling railway network is getting serious about its experiments with solar.

On July 14, Indian Railways rolled out its first train with rooftop solar panels that power the lights, fans, and information display systems inside passenger coaches. Although the train will still be pulled by a diesel-powered locomotive, a set of 16 solar panels atop each coach will replace the diesel generators that typically power these appliances. The railways estimate that a train with six solar-powered coaches could save around 21,000 litres of diesel every year, worth around Rs12 lakh.

In 2014, Indian Railways consumed 2.6 billion litres of diesel, accounting for around 70% to the network’s total fuel bill of Rs28,592 crore.

The first of these trains will be pressed into service on the suburban railway network of New Delhi, one of the world’s most polluted cities, before two dozen more coaches are fitted with similar rooftop solar systems. Retrofitting each coach with these system, including an inverter to optimise power generation and battery for storing surplus power, costs around Rs9 lakh.

Derek Wolfe sidelined by too many crab legs


ENGLEWOOD—Derek Wolfe liked the opening night training camp fare in the Denver Broncos’ cafeteria so much, he liked it way too much.

“I don’t eat seafood a lot,’’ Wolfe said. “I saw all those crab legs and I was like, “Oh I’ll just as many as I can.’’ Big mistake.’’

Wolfe was talking following the Broncos’ second training camp practice Friday, because he couldn’t talk Thursday. He couldn’t do much of anything Thursday.

As 9NEWS reported Wednesday night, the Broncos celebrated the eve of training camp by pulling out all the stops with their team dinner menu. Besides king crab legs, the main courses were lobster, filet mignon wrapped in bacon and – because football players need their carbohydrates – lasagna.

By all accounts, everything was delicious. Wolfe just suffered a lesson in gluttony. He reported to the Broncos’ first practice Thursday morning, but his stomach told the medical staff to send him home instead.

He returned for the afternoon walkthrough Thursday, and was a full participant in the Broncos’ second practice Friday.

“I got sick or food poisoning or something,’’ Wolfe said. “From 10 p.m. till 2 a.m., I was just … just stuck. They let me go home. I got an IV, pulled myself together, back today and I feel great.’’

Polls Show Trump, the Least Popular President Ever, Is Plunging Even Lower

Things aren't looking up for President Donald Trump.

There's the growing investigation into his administration's connections to Russia, the country the intelligence community assesses hacked the election to get the Republican billionaire elected. There's the flailing attempt from the GOP, led by Trump, to gut Obamacare and replace it with a new health care system that the Congressional Budget Office has determined would leave tens of millions more Americans without coverage. There's his press secretary resigning over the president's latest hire and constant reports of infighting in the White House.

And the American people seem to be tired of the constant whirlwind of controversy that Trump has created. The latest polls of his approval rating have pretty much uniformly brought bad news for the president. Gallup pegged his approval at just 37 percent Friday, while 58 percent of Americans disapproved. That's not quite the all-time low for Trump in the Gallup tracking poll—he sunk to just 35 percent in late March when the GOP's first health care plan flopped before the House could even vote—but it's getting close and earlier this month the president had briefly risen back to 40 percent.

Trump’s approval rating is below 50% across the Midwest — and in Texas

Donald Trump’s popularity is sinking, but his presidency continues to redraw the map of American politics.

Gallup rolled together all of its daily tracking polls of Donald Trump’s approval rating since January (a massive sample of 81,000 adults) to create a state-by-state map of average approval across the first six months. Trump’s numbers have generally been worse in his second quarter than they were in his first, so this map probably somewhat overestimates Trump’s level of support across the board, but the basic message that he’s moderately unpopular should be the same either way.

Trannys Can't Be Heroes: President Trump Announces that Transgenders Can't be Part of our Military

President Donald Trump tweeted Wednesday that the US military would not accept transgender people, saying their service would cause "tremendous medical costs and disruption."

"After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military," Trump said in a series of tweets.

Trump's announcement is a reversal of President Barack Obama's decision in 2016 to allow transgender people to openly serve, though the implementation of that policy had been delayed by Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis.

A Pentagon statement to Business Insider referred all questions "about the president's statements" to the White House but did say the Pentagon would "work closely" with the White House to "address the new guidance provided by the commander-in chief on transgender individuals serving the military."

Senior officials in each branch of the military had voiced opposition to integrating transgender people leading up to Trump's announcement, the Military Times reports.

Unlike Obama, who took an active hand shaping the Pentagon's operations, Trump has been known to defer to military leaders' judgment in defense issues. The extent of Trump's involvement in developing the policy is unclear.

But a Trump administration official talking to Jonathan Swan, a politics reporter at Axios, did suggest a political motive for the move.

"This forces Democrats in Rust Belt states like Ohio, Michigan, and Wisconsin, to take complete ownership of this issue," Swan quoted the official as saying. The official questioned how blue-collar voters would react when senators up for reelection "are forced to make their opposition to this a key plank of their campaign."

How this will affect the transgender people already serving in the military also remains unknown. Up to 10,700 transgender people may already be serving in the US military, according to a 2016 study by the RAND Corporation.

Pentagon spokesman Army Lt. Col. Myles Caggins told the Military Times that "just like their fellow service members," transgender people "receive all medically necessary care," which could include gender-reassignment surgery.

RAND Corp. estimated that 29 to 129 of the US military's 1.4 million troops would most likely seek reassignment surgery each year. The procedure itself can cost upward of $100,000 and accompany a lengthy hormone treatment process.

Politicians and veterans have vociferously come out in opposition of the ban. Rep. Dan Kildee, a vice chair of the LGBT Equality Caucus, called the move a "slap in the face to the thousands of transgender Americans already serving in the military." Retired US Navy SEAL Kristin Beck, who is transgender, objected to Trump's statement on the cost of transgender people in military, saying "the money is negligible … You're talking about .000001% of the military budget."

Trump has also reversed Obama's policy on guiding public schools to allow transgender students to use the bathroom that corresponds with their gender identity.

After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow……

Iranian TV Islamist caught not wearing headscarf and drinking beer

A conservative Iranian state television host, who is known for being a proponent of a strict Islamic dress code, is under fire after a video emerged allegedly showing her drinking beer and not wearing a hijab while on vacation.

Azadeh Namdari was with her family in Switzerland when she was filmed enjoying what looked like an alcoholic beverage and not wearing a headscarf, the BBC reported.

The consumption of alcoholic beverages is strictly prohibited under Islam and alcohol has been banned in Iran since the establishment of the Islamic Republic government in 1979. The Islamic dress code, which says that wearing a hijab is compulsory, is rigidly enforced by the morality police in Iran.

Lagarde Says IMF HQ May Move to China From DC in One Decade

IMF head Christine Lagarde says the organization may move its headquarters from Washington DC to Beijing in a decade if the growth trend in China and other major emerging markets continues


(WASHINGTON, DC) Changes in big emerging markets will be reflected in the IMF's voting structure, and the Fund will need to increase its representation in the region, according to Lagarde.

“Which might very well mean, that if we have this conversation in 10 years' time…we might not be sitting in Washington, DC We'll do it in our Beijing head office,” the Fund’s Managing Director said.

Lagarde highlighted that emerging economies are currently growing larger and more influential.

She added that the IMF's bylaws call for the institution's head office to be located in the largest member economy.

Since its establishment 70 years ago the IMF has always been located in the US. The US government has an effective veto over IMF decisions with a 16.5 percent share of its board votes.

According to analysts, China with growth rates forecast above six percent has a chance to overtake the US in gross domestic product during the next ten years and become the world's largest economy in nominal terms.

However, some experts, including IMF economists, argue that China already contributes more to global growth on a purchasing power parity basis, which adjusts for differences in prices.

The voting structure was last revised by the IMF in 2010, with China's share increased to 6.41 percent. The Fund is planning to set another review next year.

Trump Bans Trannies From The Military

President Donald Trump said on Wednesday he would ban transgender people from the U.S. military, an action appealing to some in his conservative political base but sowing confusion about the fate of thousands of transgender service members.

Trump's announcement, in a series of Twitter posts, drew swift condemnation from rights groups and some lawmakers in both parties as "raw prejudice" with purely political motives. But it was praised by conservative activists and some Republicans.

The Republican president's tweets offered no details on how the ban - reversing Democratic former President Barack Obama's policy - would be implemented.

"After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military," Trump wrote in a series of Twitter posts, without naming any of the generals or experts.

"Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail," added Trump, who as a presidential candidate last year vowed to fight for lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgender people.
